Bye, Harry

They know what that hat means...

And it's all full of love...


OMG! It's hearts season again! Thank you all very much!

We're long overdue for a Trump cabinet official "resignation"

Something juicy, ya know?

Best High Fives Ever!

There's a concerted rat fucking operation going on in VA against Democrats right now

I usually donít get paranoid about conspiracies, but this time it looks obvious

During Shrub's eight years, I had objected to about 80% of his SOTU content

His lies about Iraq, Afghanistan, the economy and his polices were pretty much trash. He definitely led the country down a dark path and his SOTU speeches explained both his faulty reasoning and poor decisions.

But, in spite of that, I never thought he disrespected his proper role as a guest speaker in The Peopleís House. He always stuck to protocol and he always showed due deference to the Office of the President, the Speaker and to Congress at those events.

I also had the feeling that, had he not followed proper procedures, he would have felt ashamed of himself.

Trump, on the other hand, feels no shame. Heís clearly a narcissistic sociopath with delusions of grandeur. His presentation tonight wasnít about the country, it was all about himself.

What I saw tonight was atrocious and utterly disrespectful. It was a gawd damned circus. A mockery of the nation.

When heís finally out of the White House, America is going to need an enema.


(CNN)Liam Neeson has revealed that years ago he contemplated carrying out a racist revenge attack

Liam Neeson expresses regret for once contemplating racist revenge

The actor shared the story Monday in The Independent during a press tour for his new movie, "Cold Pursuit." He expressed regret for his "horrible" past behavior.

Neeson began recounting his personal story after being asked about his film character turning to anger. He did not reveal who was attacked but said he found out when he returned home from a trip.
"She handled the situation of the rape in the most extraordinary way," Neeson told the newspaper, which published an audio excerpt. "But my immediate reaction was ... did she know who it was? No. What colour were they? She said it was a black person.

"I went up and down areas with a cosh (crowbar), hoping I'd be approached by somebody. I'm ashamed to say that, and I did it for maybe a week -- hoping some [Neeson gestured air quotes with his fingers, according to the Independent] 'black bastard' would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could kill him."

Neeson said it took him about a week to process what had happened.
"It was horrible, horrible, when I think back, that I did that," he said. "And I've never admitted that, and I'm saying it to a journalist. God forbid."

"Holy s***," said Tom Bateman, his co-star, who was reportedly sitting next to Neeson during the interview.
"It's awful," Neeson continued. "But I did learn a lesson from it, when I eventually thought, 'What the f*** are you doing', you know?"

CNN has not been able to independently authenticate the audio. A rep for Neeson has not responded to a request for comment.
Neeson, 66, added that growing up around violence in Northern Ireland taught him that revenge ultimately doesn't work.

"I come from a society -- I grew up in Northern Ireland in the Troubles -- and, you know, I knew a couple of guys that died on hunger strike, and I had acquaintances who were very caught up in the Troubles, and I understand that need for revenge, but it just leads to more revenge, to more killing and more killing, and Northern Ireland's proof of that. All this stuff that's happening in the world, the violence, is proof of that, you know. But that primal need, I understand."


it's because of stuff like this why I wrote my essay the other day.
