Perils of shopping online

Thought I'd try that new millennial thing this year. You know that online shopping thing using your computer, that the kids are all into today.  Saved a ton of time, however there were a few drawbacks.  On boxing Day I had to spend a half an hour with my eleven year old granddaughter explaining how Trump called Clinton nasty in the second debate and this girl in Kentucky wrote a slam poem about it and then Ashley Judd an old actress heard it and performed it at the women's march following Trump's inauguration and that the word Nasty on the black tank top I bought her from the Young Turks web store was actually a positive thing, in fact a shield for women to protect themselves from the assholes of the world.  Next year I'll try not to do my online shopping at three in the morning after a joint and couple single malts. Other than that it's been a pretty good Christmas season. Hope you are having a good time too.

I think Warren is right

Even though I am blocked from commenting on his blog, I often check out his take on current events. After all he is the most recognizable name and certainly the only true celebrity that regularly posts on Progressive Bloggers.

An author, TV personality and an expert on backroom political tactics, whom certainly knows more about the workings of a political party than I do, as demonstrated by the importance he is placing on the fact that our Prime Minister has violated a federal statute with four posts on the subject, so far this week.
In his last post using a clever Shakespearian turn of phrase to get our attention, Warren wants his readers to pay attention to how Liberal partisans that are defending the Prime Minister are similar to Conservative partisans who defended the former Prime Minister and obviously that is true. 
Then Warren goes further to place a plague on both their houses and proclaim his goal to become journalistic again. He certainly is an accomplished writer and a tale…

If Moores racism hadn't trumped his pedophilia, he'd be a senator today

If eight African American women had come out against Roy Moore, their voices wouldn't of been heard, because Moore is a god fearing, good old Roy and in Alabama black lives don't matter, but their votes apparently do. The African American voters showed up in force and enough white folk spoiled their ballots or stayed at home to give Jones the win.


The Democrats or the American people for that matter should not be over celebrating the Alabama Senate seat election results, not when you consider the effort that was required to barely beat a homophobe bigot and proud racist who was facing pedophilia accusations. Trump still sits in the White House and many of the women that came out with their stories against Roy Moore, voted for Trump in the last election. Did they not believe Trump's accusers or hear his boasts in the Access media tape? Did they only watch Fox news? Who knows, but the US is one messed up country.
Then just when you are ready to write these backwards people off…

Happy anniversary darlin

We were married for 45 years and forty one days. The first time we met you were wearing a very short Nova Scotia plaid skirt and climbing up and down a rolling stockroom ladder, moving cases of Arid deodorant cans from a skid to a stockroom shelf. Having time to kill and being junior management I offered my assistance and stood at the bottom of the ladder and started handing you the cases and watching you climb up and down the ladder. After three or four cases you stood at the top of the ladder, turned and said "My name is Janis and I think you've helped yourself enough here. thank you very much.".

Kelly is now rushing to the oval office to smash Trumps phone

Flynn just pleaded guilty to lying to FBI, in a plea deal where he will cooperate with Mueller. 
Meanwhile MSNBC has come out with this release that Flynn will testify that Trump directed him to make contact with the Russians.

Panic in the stock markets and panic in the White House?

Quebec la bellicose province

With a niqab ban, anti-immigrant rallies and now a gun registry protest, the next thing you know Quebecers will start wearing cowboy hats and demanding that the rest of us will have to start kissing their asses.
A Quebec pro gun group was planning a rally to protest against the Quebec gun registry laws at the park commemorating the victims of the Polytechnique Montreal massacre, our worst mass shooting when fourteen female students were killed because they were women on December 6, 1989.
The group called Tous contre un registre Quebecois des armes a feu (All against a Quebec registry) was planning their rally in the park, two days before the 28th anniversary because it is a controversial location and it will get attention, according to a spokesperson Guy Morin.
Well it got a lot of attention, all negative and as of this evening they have changed their plans. 
Look Guy, i get that you want attention to your cause but you might consider changing the name of your group to something shor…

PizzaGate explained

Never heard Bernie speak until after the US election, saw the debates and thought Hillary cleaned Trump's clock. Knew Trump was a prick and couldn't understand how any sane person would vote for him, yet for some reason, I called myself a Bernie guy, didn't trust Hillary and had no idea why.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,
