Dammit Janet you piss me off



With reverence to the progressive ladies at Dammit Janet and Impolitical.

For the record, I have signed onto the FaceBook CAPP, but only because JJ said the magic word. Didn't really want a FaceBook account, and I don't know if it counts since I used my Willy Loman handle. However when I signed up, I immediately got a friend Scott Tribe, (but I think he sent one to everyone at ProgBlogs).

Not bad eh, I got four big time bloggers in one post.

Anyway going to a rally on the 23rd. My first rally since John Lennon died. I hope they sing songs that I know the words to.

LOL. Welcome to the Reluctant Facebook Bloggers Group. (Ooo, I should start that.)

Back when I belonged to and was welcome at Bread and Roses discussion board, I was so pissed at FB that I started a thread -- since bowdlerized -- titled F*** Facebook.

You can imagine the snerking going on at me.

So, Biff, I'm off to friend you. :p

Don't worry, I had nuked my facebook account and had to reactivate it just to join this group. (Facebook: you can check out any time you like, but...)

Who knew there would be so many. This FB thing must be popular. I guess I'm just another Willy Loman, after all.

I think I'm this one.

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,

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
