My cash register total at Aldi today just happened to total $17.75

And I chuckled and blurted out "Oh! That's the year the trumpians defended our airports!"

I wish I could have been more clever, but it was spontaneous, and the cashier and a couple of people in line appreciated it, anyway.

Cool story, bruh.

I just remembered that Katie Johnson claimed she was raped as a 13 year old

by trump at one of Epstein's establishments.

Just saying.

Just finished "The Last Czars" on Netflix

Already knew most of the history, but it sure was nice to see some entitled, deluded, stuck in a bubble, religious, superstitious, "god-chosen", aristocratic, autocratic, unresponsive, tone deaf, sanctimonious fuckheads get their comeuppance, even if only simulated by actors. LOL

We just witnessed the worst aspect of soccer - *spoilers*

Hard fought contest, scoreless, neither team can generate a goal during the normal course of play, and then suddenly...

A Dutch lady tries VERY HARD to kick a ball, so much so that her entire body came upside down, absolutely no intent, whatsoever, to foul the American....

And then a cheap goal from a penalty.

And they call this "sport".

I'm certainly very happy that American women are the best at this game, but can you tell that I don't like soccer? LOL

Edited to add (because some have misread my actual point):

- Yes, it certainly was a penalty.
- Yes, such high reckless kicks certainly should be penalized, regardless of intent.

Is it unAmerican to say that our flag is not-so-pretty?

I mean..... There's an unattractive lack of symmetry, and I never understood the need to replicate the idea of "13" in the first place... both in the field and in the stripes.

I guess Betsy Ross did the best she could with what she had on hand, but I'm saying that somebody else at the time could have done a lot better with what she had on hand.

Anyway, the colors are nice, and I still love to see a whole lot of our flags flying in unison at assemblies and Olympics and whatever.... but I'm sure I would have that seem feeling with something a lot prettier/more handsome.

What's the last concert you attended? What's your next one? What was the best one?

Last concert: Phil Collins at Capital One Arena in Washington DC
Next: New Order at Fillmore Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami Beach
Best: Coldplay at FedEx field in Washington DC

Honorable mention: 10000 Maniacs in Charlotte NC a long, long time ago.

Guess I posted all this because I'm bragging about GOING TO SEE NEW ORDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Woohooo! Finally get to see the greatest dance band of all time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't agree that Biden is the most electable Democrat

I like him, as do most people. He's affable, he's experienced, he's steady, BUT....

He's just not exciting.

We need excitement for a very obvious reason. Republicans have ALWAYS, ALWAYS turned out in greater numbers at the polls than their true share of the population because they're driven by hatred and fear. It makes perfect sense that we other folks... who live and let live, adhere to tolerance, are driven by inclusion, etc.... are never as motivated to impose our wills upon others at the ballot box... unless we're EXCITED to do it.

Sorry, Joe, I love you, I appreciate your Obama years, but I just can't pull the lever for you in a primary. We need a Warren, a Harris, or a Buttegieg.

A note of advice to our eventual candidate, concerning the debates with donald trump.

When you get the urge to say this:

“Russia meddled in our elections and trump refuses to hold them accountable.”

Say this instead:

“Putin has killed at least 22 journalists that we know of, by throwing them out of windows, running over them with tanks,exploding their cars, and such, merely for asking for things like fair elections. Instead of standing up to all that trump kisses that Russian’s ass, attacks our own journalists and tries with Putin to make a joke out of America. Want video proof? Just youtube that.”

When you get the urge to say this:

“trump’s friendship with Kim Jong Un has been counterproductive to dunuclearizing North Korea.”

Say this instead:

“Kim Jong Un tortures Christians in concentration camps simply for being Christian. And he tortures their families, too, just for being their families. And Kim Jong Un has no interest in giving that up, or giving up his nuclear weapons, because he sees trump as a stupid pussy who is easy to manipulate just by pretending to be his friend.”

When you get the urge to say this:

“trump has refused to condemn the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia for the murder of Jamal Kashoggi”.

Say this instead:

“Mr. Kashoggi was an American resident with American children, and instead of respecting all that the Crown Prince sent henchmen with hacksaws to saw off Mr. Kashoggi’s arms and legs while he screamed so loud in pain and horror that the entire hotel heard them, and it’s captured on tape, and despite all that evidence trump excuses it away because with all his talk of executing journalists as enemies of the state he believes that people like Mr. Kashoggi deserve it.”

When you get the urge to say this:

“Because of his racism trump has treated migrants at the border in very cruel fashion.”

Say this instead:

“trump enjoys the news of children sleeping on cold concrete floors with open overflowing toilets, swamped in their own feces because like a coward he thinks it’s cute not to give them soap or sanitation… and cute because he and his friends make a lot of money off that for-profit operation. Speaking of which, despite him telling you that illegal immigrants should be deported he has knowingly and willingly employed illegal immigrants at his own resorts for many years. How long will you allow him to treat you like a fool?”

Can the House defund the Supreme Court?

Just wondering.... and I'm too lazy right now to do my own research.

I want to punish those bastards!

Just watched the Jeopardy Teen Tournament final. The eventual champ made a great point.

In the interview segment of the program each contestant was allowed to speak about anything they wished. The other two thanked their families for their support, which is great, and the eventual champion went on to explain why "trivia matters"....

Information allows us to understand, communicate, and connect with others, and most importantly IT FORMS THE BASIS OF ALL OPINIONS.

I thank him for saying so.

He was pressed for time, of course, but I think he left out something also important... I've always believed that the more information you gather the more you understand life in general, the more you can appreciate the beauty and intricacies of the world... which, in general, allows you to guide your life by light rather than by fear.
