So, we were at the Elephant’s Delicatessen in Portland last week ordering breakfast and a woman noticed Carlos’ cane and came up to talk. Turns out her father has Retinitis Pigmentosa, too, and has been blind since he was a child. We stood and chatted while waiting and then she asked Carlos how long he’d been visually impaired.

Carlos thought she was asking how long we’d been waiting and he said:
“About fifteen minutes.”
The look on that woman’s face is etched in my brain! And for the rest of the time we were on vacation, I’d turn to Carlos and say …
“About fifteen minutes.”
… and howl.
Oh look, closeted gay man, who only came out when we learned he molested young boys, Kevin Spacey, has a film coming out.

Billionaire Boys Club is Spacey’s first film since he was replaced by Christopher Plummer in All The Money in the World after multiple allegations of sexual assault.

Check that off the list of films not to see.
What’s this … FamilySearch, the world's largest genealogy organization, is redesigning its website so the LDS Church-sponsored database can store and provide records of same-sex families.

The Mormon Church doing something right and decent for the LGBTQ community?

Maybe Hell is freezing over.
On the other hand … a few weeks back Pope Frankie Goes to Hollywood, er, Francis told a gay man that God had made him that way and lotsa folks in the LGBTQ community lost their shiz.

I, however, said, “Wait.”

And this week Frankie condemned abortion and once again clarified the Catholic Church’s view of what is considered a “family” is a heterosexual family only.

So, again I say, F%k off Frankie.
But then … in heavily Catholic Ireland this week it was announced that gay men convicted of sex crimes prior to the decriminalization of homosexuality a quarter of a century ago will receive an official apology in Ireland’s Dáil—the Assembly of Ireland—and Seanad—the Senate of Ireland:
“The all-party supported motion will say the law prior to 1993 caused harm to gay people and to their family and friends. The motion is expected to get the support of the Cabinet at its meeting this morning and later Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is set to deliver a key speech in the Dáil. Politicians from across the Dáil and Seanad will also speak on the motion that will acknowledge the hurt caused to people who were deterred by the law from being open about their identity. It will say this prevented many of them from engaging in civil and political life. There will also be calls to ensure Irish foreign policy promotes the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people globally.”
Good news on that front, eh?
In a majority six to one vote, the Richmond Public School board voted to change the name of J.E.B. Stuart [a Confederate General] Elementary to Barack Obama Elementary School.

_____ must be livid because schools named after him get sued for fraud.
Openly gay Pennsylvania lawmaker Brian Sims blasted Vice President Mike Pence on Facebook upon Pence’s arrival in Philadelphia and offered a one-finger salute and said:
“OFFICIAL WELCOME: Vice President Mike Pence let me be the first person to officially welcome you to the City of Brotherly Love, and to my District in the State House!
To be clear, we’re a City of soaring diversity. We believe in the power of all people to live and to contribute: Black, Brown, Queer, Trans, Atheist, Immigrant, we want you and we’ll respect you.
So, keep that in mind while you’re here raising money to attack more families, spread more lies, blaspheme with your bible, and maybe even talk to a woman without your wife in the room. We have plenty of them, and they’re pretty much all more powerful and more real than you have ever been.
So…get bent, then get out!”
Bravo, sir, bravo.
John Kelly is once again ALLEGEDLY barely tolerating _____ according to those close to him.

While Kelly himself once believed he stood between _____ and chaos, he has told at least one person that he may as well let the president do what he wants, even if it leads to impeachment.

Um, John? You, like Pope Frankie, can f%k off, because you are as complicit as anyone in this hate-filled regime because, worse that acting like a spoiled petulant wannabe dictator baby, you stand by and allow it to happen and say nothing.

Kiss my ass.

Oh, and for anyone who didn’t know this, it was John Kelly, back in April, who suggested that separating children from their parents at the borders was a good way to stop illegal immigrant.

So, yeah, f%k off again.
In sad news, openly gay actor Russell Tovey has parted ways with his fiancé, British rugby player Steve Brockman. Tovey broke the news of the break-up in a comment to a follower on Instagram, who had asked if the couple was still together:
“No darling.”
Um, Russell? Steve? If either of you needs a shoulder to cry on, or, you know, whatever, I’m here for you.
Laura Ingraham is at it again; and by ‘it’ I mean acting the racist tool on Fox.

Laura Ingraham actually described the detention centers where immigrant children are being kept after being torn from their parents as “essentially summer camps”:
“As more illegal immigrants are rushing the border, more kids are being separated from their parents. And temporarily housed at what are, essentially, summer camps.”
Ingraham can take her place in the F%k Off Line.

Oh, and while we’re here, let’s, all of us, stop calling then “detention centers” and “tent cities” and shelters” and call them what they are: Internment Camps.
And if you needed any more proof that ____ is kissing the asses of Kim Jong Un, Xi Jinping, or Vlad Putin while denigrating our allies around the world, look no further than the fact that the White House has removed all photographs of French President Emmanuel Macron and replaced them with photos of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Makes sense, because this week the United States of America pulled out of the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Human rights are clearly no longer important in America.

The move comes amid criticism over _____’s policy of separating child migrants from their parents at the US-Mexico border.

The Little Dick-tator got his diaper in a wad and left the group.
Aidan Turner. Hot. Irish. Actor. He has appeared on TV, film, and stage, and starred in the BBC’s Being Human—I never saw that one, though I was hooked on the American version—as well as in PBS’ Poldark and as Kili in JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit. He has also voiced a role in the first painted animation movie, Loving Vincent.

But again, smoldering, brooding, Irish, and hot as evidenced by the fact he was voted Sexiest Man in the World by UK Glamour magazine in 2016.

Poor, delicious Carlos, married to Satan!

Bob, you don't want John Kelly's lips anywhere near your ass! You could get scabies, or ringworm or mad cow disease!

Maybe Russell and Steven found out that they were separated at birth Look at those beady eyes.

Aiden Turner, WOOF!!! It's hard to believe those are all pictures of the same (seriously hawt) guy.

I ADORE and have met Brian several times, this spring actually had cocktails with him at the raven for a democratic event. I just sat and stared at the hotness. Jokes aside he is so down to earth and very nice.

Laura, Nobody sends babies and toddlers or preschoolers to summer camp.

P.S. xoxoxoxox to Carlos. :-)

Helen Lashbrook said...

How about calling them the Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity Summer Internment Camps? LUSHSIC for short.

Isobel Tolley said...

Being Human was great (comedy drama about a vampire, werewolf and a ghost sharing a house, Russell Tovey played the werewolf.

Leeanna Henderson said...

Carlos is so precious. You should post at the very least one Tales of Carlos a week. I love reading about him.
Okay, Aidan is my secret husband, so hands off.
It's so good to have you and Carlos back.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Once again, Carlos hits PAYDIRT!

Mitchell is Moving said...

15 minutes! If only that were the answer to how long did the _______ administration last! Ah, Carlos. I saw the title and couldn't wait to read!

anne marie in philly said...

brian sims is not my rep, BUTT (see what I did there?) he IS a homeboy and we philadelphians ALL think that way about the dump dictatorship!

not "detention centers" - CONCENTRATION CAMPS!

Martha said...

Brian Sims is a real life superhero!

Professor Chaos said...

Pope Francis is soooo overrated. Just because he says some nice things and seems way less judgemental than previous popes people get so excited about him. But he hasn't done the one thing that shouyld be the top job of any pope. He hasn't purged the Church of pedophile priests, He's done nothing about them. If I were pope for a day I would summon all the priests who have ever toucjed a child to the Vatican. I wouldn't tell them I was only inviting pervos, I'd let them think it was some sort of council meeting or something. Then, seeing as how I am the king/dictator/emperoe whatever of my little city-state, I would have them all thrown into the dungeon that you know is somewhere under the papal palace. At the very least, he could have them all defrocked.

I have to think that the LDS geneaology department got a lot cooler after Arthur "Killer" Kane sarted working there.

Dave R said...

Spacey who?

Sims is our Spartan.

Gee, I thought John Kelly was Kellyann pre-op...

Now, I don't know how much Russell can bring to a relationship, but I can tell you Steve brings quite a lot.

Well, now we know who Laura prays to.
