I like to attend education classes geared for us old folks. You know when it is said there is no such as a stupid question, I beg to differ. It has been my experience that when I attend these lectures there are always people in the audience who raise their hands to ask a question. No problem. The problem begins when they begin their question by expounding on their knowledge ad nausea um before they finally arrive at their question. Oh, and by the way, had then been listening their question was probably already answered.

Note: people come to the lecture to hear the presenter not people in the audience.

Thanks. Rant over.

Samantha Bee: Cruz has Stage 4 Cancer of the Personality

Samantha Bee’s debut on Full Frontal began with an all-out skewering of the 2016 presidential race — or as she called it, “the most deranged electoral sh*t show in a generation.”

At one point, she turned her attention toward “fist-faced horsesh*t salesman” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), highlighting how uncomfortable the senator’s wife Heidi looked when CNN’s Dana Bash pointed out how unpopular he is with his fellow lawmakers. “It’s not his fault, Dana,” Bee said, imitating Heidi Cruz. “My husband has stage four cancer of the personality.”

The problem is Carnival Cruz is trying to metastasize to the rest of the country.

Samuel Jackson speaks on how I feel about Rethugs on the Teevee-Warning Strong Language

Replace snakes with Rethugs and plane with Teevee

Trying to put Raygun's image in 3,000 counties.

This has been the idea behind the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project: rather than let the historic chips fall where they may and leave their man to inertia and thumb vandals, the project wants to keep Ronald Reagan and his ideals in front of the public by naming things for him. Lots of things. How many things? “We want one thing in each county,” says the project’s architect, Grover Norquist.

America has more than three thousand counties, so he’s talking about a lot of Reagan.

Put his image overlooking every pile of $5,000 Pentagon hammers, pot-holed tax starved highway, graveyard holding HIV victims, the graves of the marines killed in Beruit, and a big ass statue on the grounds of the Iranian Embassy, if it ever comes back, celebrating his arms for hostages deal.

"Why do people take such an instant dislike to Ted Cruz?


"It just saves time."

So says a Bush alumnus.

Weekend at Bernie's?: SCOTUS Thomas has spoken from the bench in 10 years

Justice Clarence Thomas will soon celebrate 10 years of not speaking during oral arguments at the Supreme Court, The New York Times reported on Monday.

That is, he hasn't asked a single question to lawyers appearing before the court to try to make their case. For a decade.

Does Fat Tony just do the talking for him or is he afraid Anita Hill will ask a question from the gallery?

Reporter Exposes Koch Approved Journalists Spreading Reich Wing Propaganda

The Koch brothers' donor retreats are notoriously secretive affairs, but after my publishing of several hours of audio from their 2014 summer confab, the network began to bring select journalists behind its closed doors. With strings attached. Six media outlets gained access this year under the condition of not disclosing donor identities, while the Kochs enlisted hotel security staff and police officers to intimidate this reporter from exercising her First Amendment rights.

As Koch grand strategist Richard Fink sat in the Glo Lounge of the posh Renaissance Esmeralda Indian Wells resort in Palm Springs on Thursday, I heard his communications staff report to him that Fredreka Schouten of USA Today was "prepped." Sure enough, just hours later, at 5 AM on Jan. 29, her piece went live on the USA Today site: "Koch brothers' new group will take on poverty, education."

Six approved media outlets spewing Koch's one percent lies. The Koch thugs have bought the Rethugs and now are working on the Press. Not surprising I guess.
