**** skin color may vary if you plan to buy a condo in a Trump building (but you may not live there permanently)


*** This section is for the darker skinned folks

(for crop picking/meat processing, etc)

Brothel owner ousts incumbent in GOP primary

Family values in action

BY REID WILSON - 06/13/18 07:37 AM EDT


The owner of some of the country's few remaining legal brothels is a step away from claiming a seat in Nevada's state legislature after he won a Republican primary in a rural district outside Las Vegas on Tuesday.


Hof mounted his second bid for public office after state officials proposed banning brothels from operating in two of the seven counties in which they are still legal.


This time, Hof cast himself as the "Trump of Pahrump," his hometown. In April, he campaigned alongside Roger Stone, President Trump's longtime political adviser. He also sent frequent screeds, jammed with different fonts, sizes and colors, to reporters, calling the news updates "The HOFington Post."

Hof is highly likely to win the seat in November's midterm elections, when he will face Democrat Lesia Romanov. The district, mainly centered in Nye County, gave Trump more than a two-to-one edge over Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Some people take the rocks out of their coat pockets

and unfortunately some button up the coat and dive in..

My major depression was a lifetime-in-the making......... so many rocks....

Lucky for me, I got professional help, as well as intervention from friends & family

The odd thing was that my anger at them for constantly bothering me and making me go outside or get out of bed or eat, seems to have been the trigger that made me "feel" again.

Until I got angry with them, I was content to be in the ennui of the daily experience that was my life..

I had (and still have) physical health, a happy marriage, great kids, normal daily aggravations, but I fell into a rut and was too exhausted to even try to get out.. I wanted to be out...not just of the rut, but out of everything..

I made no actual plans, but was probably well on my way to it..

All these years later, I am still very pragmatic about death and my kids often get on me, because I CAN see the world without me, and I do not fear death... I am not suicidal, but at my current age, there are a LOT more years behind me than ahead, and it really does not bother me a bit.

Perhaps my earlier "brush" with the idea has desensitized me

RIP Tony.. I always loved your shows and am sad that your demons won

There is a new party.. GOPPP

It's now The Grand Ole Paranoid Pity Party

It's a perpetual pearl clutching, woe-is-me, I'm so oppressed fest

There is no normal GOP anymore (was it ever really "normal"?)

What it has morphed into is a disparate mess of hate groups.

The time has come for it to disband completely and for these groups to be forced to stand on their own. Each claims to be the heart of the party, but although they do share some qualities, most are just fringe hate groups:

there are "wimmenfolk"-haters, whose goal is for women to retreat to the birthing chambers and kitchens ..and to become their husbands' chattel

there are fetus worshipers who would begrudge a penny spent to actually help support the babies born from these unwanted pregnancies they claim to care so much about ...

there are the xenophobes who attribute their own failures to any person with darker skin than their own...never to the fact that they may have dropped out of school at 15, had 5 kids before they were 25

there are the rock'em-sock'em hell raisers who love to call themselves tea party-ers/conservatives , but they are just plain ole malcontents who act like stubborn toddlers whenever and wherever they can

there are the libertarian-esques who think they should be left alone and should never have to pay for anything.. These people never left the pubescent mindset. They look grownup, but they are just whiny moochers

there are the "good old days" gang who wax nostalgic about the 50's without realizing that 50's people paid hard core taxes so those good things could be available to many white men.
They ..also cleverly "forget" that millions of people never were able to cash in because of gender or skin color.

The main things that unite these groups are:

faux religiosity
mean-spirited greed

Not much "Grand" left in the grand old party

Old remains because many (most?) of them are getting up there in age

and it IS a pity party, to be sure. They claim that everyone is out to get them. but maybe Paranoia has replaced the party

These parties just need names, and should be forced to identify their goals...and should run candidates of their own, instead of trying to stitch that raggedy quilt back together every 2 years

Christian party
No taxes party
No blacks party
No foreigners party
Sacred fetus party
No girls allowed party

Ben Carson suspends campaign (not for the obvious reason)


Washington (AFP) - Republican Ben Carson temporarily suspended his US presidential bid Tuesday when four members of his campaign team were in a serious car accident in Iowa, where the first votes in the nomination process will be cast.

A van transporting the group "hit a patch of ice and flipped on its side where it was struck by another vehicle," Carson's campaign said in a statement.

One volunteer was being transported to a trauma center in Omaha, Nebraska, while three others including a campaign staffer who was driving the vehicle were being checked at an Iowa hospital.

"I'm suspending all campaign activities today due to a car accident involving members of our team," Carson said on Twitter.

His campaign said Carson will travel to Omaha to be with the injured volunteer's family, the campaign said.


Trump's campaign-wife announcement is gonna be something else

She's probably dancing on cloud nine

She will be his stand-in because "the lovely Melania" is too foreign, has a thick foreign accent, and is probably not all that interested in the campaign..


Sarah is PERFECT.. She'll get a fancy Trump jet to whisk her around..get her own hair/makeup person..and a snazzy new wardrobe

and she'll get out of Alaska, away from those pesky kids..and of course boring-Tawwwd..

She's a grifter, and hooked up with a con artist, they will be a dynamic duo.. She probably has a fancy title as well..

perhaps "Campaign liaison" along with a handsome retainer fee..

So get out your earplugs..that whiny twang of hers will soon be assaulting us again

Anyone else loving "Younger"?

I loved the main character in the ballet comedy that ran a few seasons..

I binge-watched season one , and was not disappointed with the new season premiere..

It's on TVLand (for those of you who don't know about it.. I found it by accident...

Is every child fathered abroad by US servicemen, eligible to be president?

Or does the child have to exit a US citizen woman to become eligible?
Obama's father was foreign (BUT, Obama was born a US citizen because Hawaii is a state)

Cruz' Dad was Cuban..Mom American..& he was born in Canada..

If Cruz' MOTHER had been a Vietnamese woman, impregnated by a US soldier, would he still be eligible?

Canada v Vietnam...just different spots on a map

Here's a hypothetical

John & Susan Smith both work for an oil company.

John was born in Nebraska
Susan was born in South Dakota

While they live abroad , they have children..all born in ..let's say Saudi Arabia (just for fun)

The parents love the money they make there, so they stay..

Their kids go to school there..socialize there and all speak fluent Arabic

After the kids graduate, they go to the US for college

One son is interested in politics..

Is he sufficiently "natural-born American" for most republicans?

Or, would he be suspect for speaking fluent Arabic?

Would his childhood friendships be suspect?... What if a childhood friend of his went on to be a terror-suspect?

Could he be required to have a DNA test to prove that his American born father was "really" his Daddy?

As we are a more global society these days, there really needs to be once and for all clarification of just what IS a natural-born American.

No American who lives abroad ever really thinks that their in-utero child may someday have citizenship questions, but there are LOTS of babies being born in places where their parent now work (that are NOT their native lands).

Moms no longer sell candy at the Sears candy counter, while Dad works at the car dealership right down the street from their house.

This "question" will come up a lot as more and more people work and live abroad.

When the constitution was written, the fear was that some child of a lord would show up and wrangle the presidency away to reinstate British rule.. The reason for "natural born" being in the law, was to make sure that NO ONE BORN IN ANY FOREIGN COUNTRY could ever ascend to the top spot.

Every time the issue has arisen, it's been a non issue because the person either did not even participate in a primary (Romney), or was born on US soil abroad (McCain), or soil that later became US soil (Goldwater).

Surely, SCOTUS can spare a few minutes to rule on this for the future..

Dudes...the word is pronounced pres-i-dent..

It's NOT prezzzzzz

I am so annoyed when the candidates cannot seem to articulate the whole word...

More often than not, they all seem to say "when I am prezzz of the united states" or the "prezz" said this or that"..

Maybe the First Lady can call him "prezzz", but it seems to me that if you are auditioning /applying for the job you should at least say the word..

...end rant...
