Random Musings

After the attack in Manchester this week, our President-For-Now came out strong against ISIS ...

He called them “losers.”

Yes, nothing strike fear into the hearts of an international terror organization, that has just murdered children, faster than having a bloated bullying billionaire call them “losers.”

Stunted narcissistic asshat.

PS You promised to get rid of ISIS in your first thirty days ... you’re one hundred days behind schedule.
UPDATE: Richard Henry Patterson, the Florida man who claimed his girlfriend choked to death during oral sex, was found not guilty this week of second-degree murder.

At least now I know that, if Carlos were to, ahem, suffer the same fate, I'd get off ....... again.

I’m a horrible person.
Hot Men Duo ... Daddy and Son ...

Tony Goldwyn, who played President Grant on Scandal, until this last season when his two terms in office ended. Goldwyn was always handsome, but every so office you’d see him with his shirt off and suddenly it was, Oh, Mister President!

And Dylan Minette, who played President Grant’s son, Jerry, until he was murdered a few years ago. He’s got a show about teen suicide—Thirteen Reasons Why—and, well, he’s just so darn pretty ... even if he is young enough to be the president’s son, and my son, too.

Just sayin’.
As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton logged nearly a million miles in travel around the globe and never once complained.

Not so with President-For-Now _____, who, in his first foray overseas, in his first few days, cancelled an event because he was tired.

Yes, the man who called Jeb Bush “low energy” and said Clinton didn’t have the “stamina” for the job, had to take a time out and a nap because traveling is hard.

The Resistance—and the Democrats—just scored their first win of 2017.

And it might just be the beginning of the end for _____ when Edie DesMarais, a Democrat, won a State Representative seat in deep-red Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.

Donald _____ won that district by a wide margin in November and here, just a few months later, the people said, Oh hell no and elected a Democrat.

Keep Resisting!
So, at work, we have one computer that most of us use from time-to-time because of its proximity to the front of the office. One co-worker, however, uses it to monitor his Facebook page, and then leaves Facebook open under his account.

Big mistake. Huge. One day, a co-worker and I were looking for information on a new business opening in Smallville, and, as we were at the front, used that computer. She was on her phone searching while I Googled some information on the computer. I found a link to the Facebook page of the business and clicked on it; it opened right up and I thought nothing about it.

I told my co-worker that I had found what we were looking for and she stood next to me and read from the page.

Then she says, “Are you reading this?”

Down on the right, was a private message from our co-worker who keeps Facebook open under his account, where he was speaking to his girlfriend who lives in Pennsylvania and this is the first thing I read:
“Cum on my face and tits.”
Yes, our co-worker was having a sexting private message chat on his Facebook page at his home while it streamed live on our computer at work.

I looked at my co-worker as our friend typed, “I’m finished,” and I said, “Should I join in and say ‘Well, I’m not finished yet?’”

Just a note to people to close out your Facebook page when you leave the office lest you want a slew of co-workers to know your sticky business.
Oops ... _____ and his team thought that all of his Russia problems might go away while he was out of the country but, yeah, not so much.

Now it appears that Attorney General Jeff Sessions failed to disclose meetings with Russian officials, in his security clearance application, Sessions met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak at least two times last year and failed to note those interactions on the form, which requires him to list “any contact” he or his family had with a “foreign government” or its “representatives” over the past seven years.

Oops. Sessions, the Attorney General lied ... under oath. And now Representative John Conyers, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee has called for an investigation into Sessions.
The dominos are falling ...
So, the CBO score on the new GOPDon’tCare healthcare plan came in and it’s worse than expected ...

Fifty-one million uninsured by 2026 and premiums rising for the poorest among us while billionaires get tax breaks and the military gets more bombs.

And don’t forget, the GOP celebrated the House passage of this mess with a beer party.

This is who voted to take healthcare away from people and gouge the rest of us, while giving themselves more coins in the bank.

We’ve all seen the crowds at GOP Town Hall meetings as constituents question their Representatives about Healthcare and Donald _____; these meetings often get very loud, with all kinds of screaming and shouting, but, until now, have remained non-violent.

But, yesterday GOP House candidate Greg Gianforte in Montana’s special election body slammed Ben Jacobs from the Guardian after he was asked about GOP plans for an Obamacare repeal.

And this morning, Election Day, Montana law enforcement has charged  Gianforte with misdemeanor assault, according to Gallatin County Sheriff Brian Gootkin:
“Following multiple interviews and an investigation by the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office it was determined there was probable cause to issue a citation to Greg Gianforte for misdemeanor assault. The nature of the injuries did not meet the statutory elements of felony assault.”
Gianforte faces a maximum sentence of six months in jail, a $500 fine, or both.
The Guardian released an audio recording of the incident during which Gianforte tried to deflect Jacob’s questions about the CBO score of GOPDon’tCare:

Gianforte: “We’ll talk to you about that later.” 

Jacobs: “Yeah, but there’s not going to be time. I’m just curious about it right now.”

Gianforte: “I’m sick and tired of you guys. The last guy who came in here you did the same thing. Get the hell out of here!”

Jacobs: “You just body slammed me and broke my glasses.”

Gianforte’s office offered an alternate account of events, saying Jacobs encroached on “a separate interview in a private office” and “aggressively shoved a recorder in Greg’s face” except ... other news agencies, including Fox News, have come forward to not only verify Jacob’s account, but to say the assault was much worse than previously thought.

Fox reporter Alicia Acuna said:
“Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him. I watched in disbelief as Gianforte then began punching the man, as he moved on top the reporter and began yelling something to the effect of ‘I’m sick and tired of this!'”

I’ve been saying a while now that since _____ began playing up this Fake News Bull Shiz reporters will come for the GOP and now they have; Gianforte ought to quit the campaign, rescind his candidacy, and prepare himself for trial, and hopefully, jail.

Love the distance of the Pope in the last photo. That says it all. Most awkward picture ever.

Raybeard said...

In the last pic, who's that woman I don't recognise standing beside the grinner? Is it the Pope's missus?

Re your work adventure.
Mom-ism #473 NEVER, EVER put anything on the internets that you don't want your mother to see!!!

your co-worker better watch it or he may find himself out of a job.

how many more dump dictatorship lies are we the people going to have to endure?

Mitchell is Moving said...

Tony Goldywynn, Edie DesMarais.... The rest doesn't translate to Norwegian!

Professor Chaos said...

Aaaand Gianforte is elected to Congress. Way to go, Montana!
With the description of the attack from the FOX reporter, I would think there could be additional charges brought against this thug.

Professor Chaos said...

Also, if anything happens to Carlos, I'm forwarding this screen shot directly to Dateline!
