Rethug Take on Disasters

When disasters hit Dems Rethugs basically say the Dems deserved it and should have planned. "Get more busses," "evacuate earlier," or "sweep the forest floors."

When Rethugs get hit by natural disasters they say "nobody could have seen this coming" or "real Americans always deserve aid."

Disgusting, but predictable.

New asterisk category.

With the dimension of the bases going from 15 square inches to 18 inches does that mean new base stealing records need to have an asterisk.

The size of the base will not decrease the length of the base path. The base-to-base length will remain at 90 feet, but bigger bases will give players a bigger target to hit, especially when a player’s foot is holding the base on defense.

A bit more real estate to avoid the tag.

Those extra inches could mean a big difference in the rate of success for base stealers.

Sarcasm. I think.

Whenever I hear gamers say playing video games improve their eye-hand

How? My system you ask?

I could put the stylus on my album exactly between the no good track, and the great track, while it was spinning.

The Orange Blob has issues with

the Special Master.


Donald Trump got the court-ordered review he wanted of documents seized from his Mar-a-Lago home as well as his preferred pick for a so-called special master to carry it out. But less than a month in, the former president has complaints about how that review is taking shape.

The Tangerine Gasbag couldn't fix a one horse race.

Best explanation of Trickle Down Economics I've Read

The next time you see someone existing under a plastic sheet in the pouring rain or asking for help from a wheelchair in the burning heat do this. Please don't offer them assistance. Do this instead.

In accordance with TDEs, after you witness these folks in terrible circumstances, drive immediately to the fanciest neighborhood you can find. In that neighborhood find the most extravagant mansion. Then, put a 20 dollar bill in their mailbox.

There, fixed the problem.

The walking time from the bar back to my house is 1 hour.

The difference is staggering.
