Random Musings

So, the Senate Republicans, lead by Mitch McTurtle, are saying they won’t  even allow a committee hearing on President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee no matter who that nominee might be because Obama is a Black man and he’s got no business telling racist Republicans what to do.

Okay, maybe that last part is what I said but I believe it to be true. But the Republicans don’t even care who the nominee is, even if it might be Nevada’s Republican Governor Brian Sandoval.

So, MoveOn has found a slew of Republicans who disagree with McTurtles and The Asshats — such as Senators Mark Kirk and Susan Collins and former Republican Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor — oh, and one more: the Messiah of the GOP, that Saint of All Republicans, Ronald Reagan:

So, former failed — twice — GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney, who has endorsed Marco Rubio’s bid, is now speculating that Donald Trump might be deliberately concealing information about his net worth, his donation habits and his taxes.

Pot.Kettle.Black. It was just eight years ago that Romney tried to hide his wealth and minute tax bill from America and now he’s trying to use it against [t]Rump.

Why not simply say Donald [t]Rump is a bully and a moron and a loser? Keep the message simple.
I’m of two minds about this court order that Apple  must create a way to break into the San Bernardino terrorist’s iPhone.

First off, I don’t believe for one minute that Apple doesn’t already know how to do this, and
Secondly, how stupid does our government look that they can’t do it?

I mean, I bet there’s an eight-year-old in China right now who can do it …
Over there to Kentucky, the state Senate has approved a bill that creates different marriage license forms for gay and straight couples, with one Republican senator saying a form that does not include the words "bride" and "groom" is disrespectful to traditional families.

Yup, because Billy Bob and his cousin Betty Sue cannot sign a paper with the words “bride” and “groom” on ;’em, means they’re being discriminated against.

STFU Kentucky.
Bates Motel starts back again next week in all its creepy, incestuous, murdering ways … and promises much more of the same. In case you were wondering …

Oh and not too far behind is Showtime's Penny Dreadful, which is anything but ...
Carlos, wandering through the living room while I am glued to CNN: What are they talking about?

Bob: Huh? What? I don’t know?

Carlos: You don’t know? You’re staring at the TV like you wanna crawl inside …

Bob: Huh?

On CNN, pundit Van Jones. ‘Nuff said; and I still don’t know what they were talking about.
Future failed presidential candidate, Republican John Kasich says he rejects anti-LGBT discrimination by Christian-owned businesses though churches that discriminate are just fine with him:
“I think frankly, our churches should not be forced to do anything that’s not consistent with them. But if you’re a cupcake maker and somebody wants a cupcake, make them a cupcake. Let’s not have a big lawsuit or argument over all this stuff. Move on. The next thing, you know, they might be saying if you’re divorced you shouldn’t get a cupcake.”
But … before y’all get your rainbow flags out and think about marching behind Kasich, remembver5 he’s the Ohio governor who just last week cut funding to Planned Parenthood.

Yeah, he’s an asshat, too.

I have noticed lately that you have been distracted by hot chocolate. Thanks for the Bates Motel heads up. I didn't know it was coming back already. With AHS off, I need my weekly dose of crazy.

The Engineer had a mixup with his Iphone and it went home with someone else. He had a heck of a time tracking it down due to security stuff that is mixed up with work. He was joking that even the Pentagon could not track it for him. It will be back tonight.

This is the only year that I can remember where I even dream in F-bombs, everything is so screwed up.

I've said it before - and will again - Kasich is scarer than the rest of them. Their 'crazy' it out and in front. This man is a wolf in sheep's clothing. He talks a good game, but is just fucking evil. He'll be someone's VP choice in hopes of carrying Ohio. My fave article in today's paper was: 'Kasich Would Beat Clinton in Ohio'. It's just the 49 other states he'd have problems......oh - and the problem is he won't be the nominee.

As for Apple, you know they can hack it. As for the US you know they can too - they just want someone else to do it so it doesn't look like they're hacking into your phone - which they are.

Oh, thank you, Bob, for always saying things I would love to have the balls/smarts/wit to say.

We appear to be of the same [two] mind[s] regarding Apple and the FBI.

I think it incredible that Apple don't accept a court order for them to open up a terrorist's phone; it infringes their constitutional right to free speech! We all go around talking in security code in this modern age. I am against infringement of our human rights, but this is just a joke.
