Dirty Laundry

It is worth noting that repeatedly washing one’s dirty laundry can eventually clog one’s drains. Once that occurs, it is necessary to hire a plumber. Good plumbers are very expensive. The mechanics of clearing the clog can cost more than one is willing to pay.

On the other hand, failure to remedy the clog in the pipes causes leaks. Serious leaks also necessitate expensive repairs by good plumbers. Otherwise, simply continuing to wash the dirty laundry without repairing the existing problems eventually can cause one’s pipes to burst.

Money laundering in particular is a dirty wash capable of effectuating a devastating bombshell. At that point, one has nothing but an unintended Watergate.

2. You made ME feel good!

Thanks for posting on my thread. I was writing this in my head as I watched MSNBC tonite. I had it finished when I came into the computer room to post it. I hesitated because I didn't think anyone would like it! But you did! and thank you very much.

11. Oh, YOU made me feel good!

I love this! The leaks, the dirty laundry all requiring propper attention yet becoming larger due to lack of proper attentiveness.


My mind is having a lovely time with the thoughts your writing inspired in me!

There's good fertile ground as BS becomes fertilizer. But it first must be processed so to avoid burning the good stuff.

Thank you for posting it, Sam!

3. Verrrry well done! Thanks for the tale...

I know exactly what you mean about watching Trump tv and finding yourself constructing a story out of the material. I do a recurring one here about the Mad King in his Golden Tower -- the cast of characters in his family is such that the stories almost write themselves.

Keep it up -- we need all the relief we can get.

7. You guys are making me happy tonite with your kind words

Kind words are few and far between in our current environment (not DU but the overall political).

Thanks for posting on my thread and making me smile.

10. Thank you canetoad

I was sitting here thinking late tonight about the man with the washing machine and I started to focus on writing a very pointed thread. But sometimes it is better to clean up and talk about it rather than throw darts.

Thanks for posting on my thread.

15. And I see another bombshell bursting

This was first reported this evening by anonymous officials, but later confirmed by Martha Stewart who cleaned up her act after serving time and reconnoitering her cleaning methods altogether.

Thanks for posting on my thread.

14. Watergate...

Nixon had plumbers to fix the leaks. They ended up being very expensive indeed.

I like your thoughts on dirty laundry. Thanks for posting.

On edit: Before I opened the thread, I thought it was going to be about the Don Henley song.

17. I am embarrassed to say I had to look Don Henley up...

but I found these lyrics from his dirty laundry song:

"I make my living off the evening news
Just give me something-something I can use
People love it when you lose,
They love dirty laundry

"Well, I coulda been an actor, but I wound up here
I just have to look good, I don't have to be clear
Come and whisper in my ear
Give us dirty laundry."

http://www.lyricsfreak.com/d/don+henley/dirty+laundry_20042033.html

Those words and this thread fit together very nicely (especially that first paragraph). Thanks for posting on my thread.
