Saddened and Humbled by a Student

I call her "Picnic" because she brings a monster sized backpack full of food with her to class and eats most (sometimes all) of that food at during class. I could be annoyed, but she is good student who has class until 9pm. The other day, she was telling me she was looking for another job. She has a full time job, but it does not pay enough. She works and takes a full load of classes. Who am I to question her eating during our class at 12:30pm? It's lunch time! Or maybe "picnic time".

Today Picnic came to class without any food. She said she only had $2 and wanted to know how much the cafeteria charged for fries. I asked her why she didn't just use a credit card. She didn't have one. Why didn't she have one? "They" wouldn't let her have one. This was beginning to get confusing for me. Why wouldn't "they" let her have one? Because she is DACA.

Uh oh! New revelation for me! Obviously this is a common problem because I did a quick Google search and found a lot of people asking about it. You can get a secured credit card if you put down some collateral. But, then again, Picnic doesn't make enough at her full time job, so that option is out.

Today, Picnic chewed gum and told me how "they" said that chewing gum will relieve hunger. It wasn't really working for her, though. That was seven hours ago, and as I write this she has another hour of classes to go. Before you ask, I would have given her some cash if I had any, but I rarely carry cash on me. Class was beginning, I have two classes back to back, and Picnic leaves in between (I never see her after the first class). Yes, I did think of how I could get some food for her.

I sincerely hope Picnic found something to eat. I'll have to ask her about it during our next class. And, you know, maybe I'll start carrying some cash with me! In the meantime, "they" had better get their act together because I'm tired of "them" picking on my students!

WH is now using fake Dotard?! WTF???

Take a look at this video allegedly of Dotard. It kind of looks like him, but there is definitely something off.

DUers with bumper stickers, resist t-shirts, pussy hats, etc

Have you faced any confrontations from displaying your anti-Dotard items? Have you or your property suffered any damage from confrontation?

Back in the W days, I had several bumper stickers on my truck. One day, I found that someone had come along and ripped off the bumper stickers and piled gravel on my hood. It was enough to make me think twice about putting bumper stickers on my truck back then, and I can't imagine what the response might be with anti-Dotard items displayed publicly today.

Dotard at it again with the anti-kneeling crap


A big salute to Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, who will BENCH players who disrespect our Flag."Stand for Anthem or sit for game!"

I hope entire teams sit for the season.

Help Wanted: Trained Handler

Help wanted: trained handler for one rare Orange Russian Shit Gibbon.

Job Description:

One lucky applicant will be selected to keep Dotard, our Orange Russian Shit Gibbon, under control. He is getting older now and is suffering from dementia. The person selected to be his handler will need to keep his feces throwing and rampant tweeting in check. He is a silly boy and likes to stick his feet in his mouth, so you will need to be on the lookout for tell tale signs he might be getting ready to do just that. You will need to placate him with his favorite toys (Fifi his plush stuffed cat and Binky the file of all his positive reviews) while keeping him far removed from the myriad dangers found in his enclosure (red phone, stapler, pointy stick with flag attached). You must have a strong stomach to be able to deal with cleaning up after one of his feces throwing tantrums. You must be strong willed to correct his behavior and get him to go to bed on time. This is a 24/7 job. You will be on call at all hours of the day and night. Compensation will not be nearly adequate. You must really, really want to do this job for the sake of your country.

Interested applicants should email a resume and cover letter to:
Rex Tillerson

Let Me Tell You About The Rifle I Need to Purchase

What is the reasoning behind the need for an assault rifle to hunt with? How can people selling these things rationalize setting up a buyer with equipment that could take out a small town?

1.It needs to be semi-automatic that is easily convertible to full automatic. Ah, you can just throw in a bump fire stock.
Reasoning: Animals just don't want to die after being hit by only a few rounds. I need to put at least twenty rounds into an animal.

2.It needs to be powerful enough to carry at least four hundred yards while maintaining decent accuracy.
Reasoning: Look, I'm sitting in my blind with my beer, all comfy. I don't want to come out and actually have to move in closer to the animals I want to murder.

3.It needs to come with a clip that holds at least fifty rounds, and I need to buy at least ten clips to go with it.
Reasoning: See number two. I'm comfy in here, dammit!

4.It needs to come with a suppressor.
Reasoning: I'm enjoying the nice quiet of the outdoors, and I don't want to disturb the other animals that I don't want to murder (for the moment).

5.I'm going to need at least 1,000 rounds of ammo to go with that order.
Reasoning: I'm a really bad shot and need a hell of a lot of ammo in order to bring down one animal.

6. You know what, let me buy a dozen of those rifles.

My Student Showed Me How Pervasive and Powerful the Anti-HRC Campaign Was

Twice a month now, a group of people are coming into my college to register students to vote. I saw them today and decided to ask my students if they were registered. This led them into to a discussion of who voted last year. One student is a Hispanic woman (born here and a citizen but identifies heavily with and has spent a lot of time in Mexico). She told me she hadn't voted because both candidates were bad and she didn't want either for president.

I got a little upset. No, I didn't say anything negative to the student. But it made me realize how insidious the Dotard campaign really was. My student is 20, Hispanic, female. Those are three good reasons for her voting for Hillary. The only reason possible for her not casting her vote for Hillary was the negativity, the lies, and the suppression by manipulation that occurred.

Look, this is not the first time one of my students has expressed this sentiment. It's just that this time around, my student had every reason imaginable to vote for HRC or, at least, against Dotard. So how do we get these young people to vote? How can we fight against the disinformation campaign? It's not legal for me to take my students aside and tell the how to vote even though I certainly feel like it. So who is in a position of authority and trust who can legally talk to these people? I mean, my God, today's revelation was a major nail in the coffin of hope.

KISS Gets Fans to Recite Pledge of Allegiance

The can go to hell. They always sucked, and now they suck even harder.


KISS showed once again that they don't just have stars and stripes painted on their faces -- but on their hearts too.

Before their encore Saturday night (Sept. 30) at the Gretna Heritage Festival in Louisiana, the classic rock band requested the audience join them in a display of U.S. patriotism by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

"It's always cool to love your country," frontman Paul Stanley said, according to a report.

Unsurprisingly, fan response was divided. One supporter tweeted, "KISS just stopped their concert to take a moment to thank the veterans and say the pledge of allegiance. Pretty damn cool."

While another wrote, "KISS made everyone do the pledge of allegiance before they would do an encore. That was the least rock and roll thing I've ever seen."

OMG!!! Dotard STILL Doesn't Know Which Li'l Kim Is In Power!

Just look at this! He still thinks he's dealing with the same Kim that the past three presidents have dealt with.


Being nice to Rocket Man hasn't worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I won't fail.

This complete and unabashed idiocy should be grounds for immediate arrest. He is threatening nuclear war with a leader he believes is someone else!

Hurricane Harvey-Related Diseases Have Increased, Health Officials Warn

It's not just PR. Newsweek article.


Among Dr. Shah’s concerns is the recent uptick in floodwater-related illnesses such as respiratory disease, skin infections, and gastrointestinal (GI) infections.

“The [water] contains sewage. It contains runoff from who knows what,” Dr. James McDeavitt, dean of clinical affairs at Baylor College of Medicine, told ABC News.

And this one from Verge: Toxic waste seeps from a Houston Superfund site after Harvey's floods: https://www.theverge.com/2017/9/29/16385568/hurricane-harvey-superfund-site-houston-dioxin-cancer-chemicals

Hurricane Harvey’s unprecedented rains and flooding last month caused a leak from a heavily polluted site along the San Jacinto River east of Houston, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Some of the highly toxic chemicals found include dioxins; they’re known to cause reproductive and developmental problems, damage the immune system, and cause cancer, according to the World Health Organization. A sediment sample at the site showed dioxins at 70,000 ng/kg — orders of magnitude higher than the recommended level at the site, which is 30 ng/kg. That’s already trouble, but it gets worse: Certain types of dioxins can be very hard to dispose of, increasing the risks of contamination. The dioxin in the Superfund site waste doesn’t dissolve easily in water, but it can seep into the surrounding sediments, the EPA says.

This is NOT the time to be playing golf or tweeting incendiary comments. This lackadaisical attitude is going to kill hundreds if not thousands of people before the year is out.
