Random Musings

Looks like the suspension is over because … Billy Bush has been fired by NBC over #PussyGate. It appears that NBC will announce in the next few days that this Bush is out of a job, and apparently he has no one but himself to blame.

See, ALLEGEDLY, Billy was bragging about the tape to other NBC staff while in Rio for the Olympics and if he knew about the tape, and if he remembered all of what was said on the tape — with a presidential candidate — and didn’t that to NBC News, well, Buh bye Billy.
I used think Ivanka was the smart one but since Daddy Donald has been running for the White House it’s become clear that, either she’s been drowning herself in the Kool-Aid or she was hoping Daddy would win and she’d be Queen of the Empire because, let’s face it, her other siblings are complete morons.

But … the day before the last debate she posted a picture on Instagram and then favorited a Huffington Post tweet about her father giving the go-ahead for folks to call her a “piece of ass.”

She really did! She’s just like Daddy.

An email from a rep with Ivanka Trump states, “A simple mistake was made by a staff member.”

The story has since been “unfaved”.
From the He Apparently Doesn’t Follow The News Or Supreme Court Decision … former failed GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson says that opposition to same-sex marriage is the only thing preventing the U.S. from descending into “utter chaos” and that marriage equality will lead to “mass killings.”

Um, Ben? You ignorant brainless brain surgeon? Marriage equality has been the law of the land for well over a year now and there hasn’t been chaos and mass killings.

You can stop pandering to be base now and have a sit down.
So, after Hurricane Matthew blew through Camden and the trees came down, one of our neighbors called to say that her cat was missing and that he sued to love to sun himself in our yard.

Well, we looked and didn’t see him, but now the neighbor called back to say that she saw the cat — Gray is his name — going under our house and that he seemed to have been injured.

So, I went under the house — not at all a favorite thing of mine to do and that is not a picture of Gray because he won't come close to me — and saw Gray, but he wouldn’t come to me. The neighbor, whose name is Kitty — seriously — came by and set food out for him and we’re hoping he’ll come to his senses and come out now that the storm has passed but ….
That may prove difficult because starting tomorrow, our other neighbors will be in our yard removing their tree and the tress their tree took down, from our back yard. They will have a team of chainsaws and friends out there to take away the thirty foot tree that toppled, and also take away the three of four trees of ours that were hit by the “faller.”

The good news is that we have several Crepe Myrtles around the yard that get very little sun and don’t bloom as they should, so we’ll be able to move those to this new spot where they’ll get some sun.

Last year we watched a sudsy nighttime soap opera about Montana oil fields; it was dumb. But it co-starred the delicious Aiden Canto until the show was cancelled. So, cut to this year and Canto is back on Designated Survivor playing what may be a bad guy … a hot sultry bad guy.

And Daveed Diggs, late of the Broadway smash Hamilton, is appearing on Black-ish for a few episodes and so, yeah, there’s that, too.

Hotties everywhere …
The Washington Post endorses Hillary:
In the gloom and ugliness of this political season, one encouraging truth is often overlooked: There is a well-qualified, well-prepared candidate on the ballot. Hillary Clinton has the potential to be an excellent president of the United States, and we endorse her without hesitation [and] … No, we are not making this endorsement simply because Ms. Clinton’s chief opponent is dreadful.”
Bam!
And what’s all this talk about Climate Change?

Ten days ago, in October, we were running the air conditioner because of the heat, and then we had a hurricane roll through and now we’re running the heater.

I went from shirts and flip-flops to sweats and socks in  the space of  a weekend.
We still have the racist Donald supporter at work, and this week she stood up for him after saying he wanted to f#k a married woman or grab a woman by the pussy because, wait for it, 33,000 emails.

I quietly said, “But you have no problem with the Bush Cheney White House deleting 22 million emails?”

She said “Hillary’s a criminal.”

I replied, “Huh, on the one hand, 33,000 emails vanished and on the other, a sexual predator, racist, bigoted, tax-dodging, homophobic, anti-Muslim, anti-women, adulterer for a candidate. Yeah, good choice.”

Some people.
And second-to-lastly, from the I Love Randy Andy Cooper [My-Husband-In-My-Head] … I saw him interview that delusional pandering moron of a Donald campaign manager Kellyanne Conway who declared that because Bill Clinton settled a lawsuit with Paula Jones without going to court, that means he was guilty of sexual assault or cheating or whatever.

Anderson tried to explain that people often settle lawsuits for all sorts of reasons and that doesn’t always mean guilt and Kellyanne, not knowing he was leading her along like an idiot, said it did.

Then, Anderson wondered what about the hundreds of lawsuits Donald settled over the years with former employees and vendors that he screwed out of paychecks? Wouldn’t that make him guilty, by Kellyanne “standards”?

Poor Kellyanne …

Great musings this week! I was going to write something clever and pithy (for me anyway) but I got distracted by Daveed Diggs' lips! Total short circuit of the brain! Too bad Ben Carson doesn't have that excuse.

So what was causing all the mass killings prior to 2015?

Over several decades of avidly following politics both in Canada and the US, I have come to the conclusion that doctors make the stupidest politicians, bar none. I don't know why that is, but I suspect it has a lot to do with the "God Complex" that many physicians have. Advanced education in the medical field is no guarantee that they don't have shit for brains when it comes to social or economic policy.

@AM
I just came home to find Kitty, the owner of Gray, in our yard. Gray came out from under the house, but he hasn't gone home yet ... he likes to visit our dog, Ozzo.
He appears to have been injured during the storm, but he ate the food she set out and drank the water, so she's hoping he'll work his way home.

Since the second debate debacle and pussy gate, ivanka's line of shoes and handbags sales have plummeted at the store!!!! I agree with you....she's as close am idiot like the rest of the clan. Never liked Billy bush for some reason. He fit's right in with the creepy pussy grabbers....and I am unanimous in that.

I know family comes first but support now, after all the recent revelations about the Strumpet, seems a little like unhealthy fixation
