Bobservations


Earlier this year, the neighbor behind us began clearing away all the overgrown shrubs and vines between our two yards. As he did so, we learned that out fence was in really bad shape and so we had it removed and are set to replace it later this month.

In the meanwhile, Carlos and the neighbor have become very chummy, chatting in the backyard, talking about this and that.

We had a bad storm come through about a week ago and a dead tree fell across our driveway. The neighbor has a chainsaw and offered to come over and cut the tree up for us—it was too big to simply move. Then he offered to haul away the pieces of the tree for us.

Very nice. But, as I am apt to do, I began calling the neighbor Carlos’ new boyfriend.
“Your boyfriend is outside.”
“Your boyfriend is working in his shed.”
Your boyfriend is mowing his yard.”
This week the neighbor was using a small tractor to grade his property for better water drainage and I said to Carlos:
“Your boyfriend is outside on a tractor. Maybe if you’re nice he’ll let you take a ride.”
“I don’t want to ride on a tractor.”
I smiled:
“I didn’t say anything about riding his 'tractor'.”
I’m fun.,
I am no fan of churches, but this one made me smile … the Christ Church Cathedral in Indianapolis is sending quite the message about our current immigration crisis by putting up a display on their lawn that has statues of Mary, Joseph and Jesus in a cage.

The church posted to its Twitter page:
“On our lawn tonight we placed The Holy Family … in #ICE detention.”
The church also posted two signs on their lawn; one says #EveryFamilyIsHoly and the other says the same thing in #CadaFamiliaEsSagrada.

Church officials suggest the display might stay up as long as families continue to be detained.

As I said, not a fan of churches, but this one is stepping up for children and immigrants, something big religious leaders—like Graham, Robertson and Osteen—have failed to do.
After _____ called journalists and media the “enemy of the people”, several people were shot at the Capital Gazette offices last week and _____ said nothing about it.

When Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley asked _____ to lower American flags at the White House in honor those murdered, ____ said ‘No.’ Buckley said:
“Obviously, I’m disappointed, you know? … Is there a cutoff for tragedy? This was an attack on the press. It was an attack on freedom of speech. It’s just as important as any other tragedy.”
And if you think it’s just ____ ignoring gun shootings in this country at the urging of the NRA, please note that he did order flags lowered for previous mass shootings, such as the shootings at Santa Fe High School and at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

I guess he truly doesn’t feel journalists matter.

PS After mounting pressure the Fat Bastard did lower the flags, but kept up his "enemy of the people" mantra.
Angela Ponce, a trans woman was crowned as Miss Universe in Spain yesterday and will represent that country in the upcoming Miss Universe pageant at the end of the year.

The beauty pageant lifted the ban on trans women competing back in 2012 after urging from GLAAD.

Brava, Angela, brava!
Now, onto SCOTUS and the replacement for traitor Anthony Kennedy … _____ told his told advisers he is looking for three qualities in Kennedy’s replacement:
First: _____ wants his nominee not to be “weak,” and have independent judgment and the courage to buck “the political and social fashions of the day”.
Second: ______ wants a nominee who will “interpret the Constitution the way the framers meant it to be” even though no one knows how to do that given that the document is over two-hundred years old and the world has changed since then … unless _____ wants to go back to slavery, and women as second-class citizens.
Third: the nominee must have a superlative résumé; the nominee should come from an Ivy League university like Harvard or Yale; _____ wants the nominee to submit a portfolio of his or her writing, though _____ has said he won’t read it, he just wants to know it exists.
Seriously. The man cannot read.
Roseanne Barr, who was fired from her show for being a racist tool, only to see the show be rebooted as The Conners without her participation, either creatively or financially, now claims she’s fielded several offers for a new TV show.

Racist liar say what?
Yesterday was America’s birthday and for the first time in Gallup’s 18-year history asking Americans how proud they are to be Americans, fewer than a majority say they are “extremely proud.”

Wonder what caused that?

Oh. Yeah.
Pictures of Tess Thompson Talley of Kentucky showing her posing … posing … with the dead body of a “rare” black giraffe she murdered for sport have sparked outrage. The pictures emerged after they were posted on Twitter by the South Africa-based AfricLand Post website. Accompanying the post were the words:
“White American savage who is partly a Neanderthal comes to Africa and shoot down a very rare black giraffe courtesy of South Africa stupidity. Her name is Tess Thompson Talley. Please share”.
The photos were from a hunting trip Thompson Talley took in June 2017 and she proudly declared on Facebook:
“Prayers for my once in a lifetime dream hunt came true today! Spotted this rare black giraffe bull and stalked him for quite a while. I knew it was the one. He was over 18 years old, 4,000 lbs and was blessed to be able to get 2,000 lbs of meat from him.”
Pig. Interestingly enough, when the story broke and people began badgering Tess for being a vile human being, she actually defended her decision:
“The giraffe I hunted was the South African sub-species of giraffe. The numbers of this sub-species is actually increasing due, in part, to hunters and conservation efforts paid for in large part by big game hunting. The breed is not rare in any way other than it was very old. Giraffes get darker with age.”
Bitch, you called it rare in your bragging Facebook post.

Again, Pig, bitch vile human being. Spread her shame.
Oops. The _____ Foundation is being sued by New York’s attorney general, Barbara Underwood, for using the charity to enrich and benefit the ______ Klan.

This week lawyers for the _____ Foundation, which is run by _____ and his oldest children, Junior, the Dumb One and the Feckless C*nt requested in court that the execution of justice be rescheduled to accommodate the midterm elections. 

And the judge int the case, Judge Scarpulla actually laughed in response, did not change the trial date, and hinted that she is likely to require the President to testify.

Karma, baby, karma.
On a recent stiflingly hot afternoon, sitting beneath a ceiling fan trying to keep cool, I opted to watch Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a classic story mixed with the walking dead. It was zombies only walk really slowly so how bad can they be, right?

But the film did feature some hot mens … even on a scorcher of a day, a hot man is a welcome treat … from the top … Douglas Booth, who portrayed the beautiful Mr. Bingley … to Sam Riley, the brooding Darcy …to Jack Huston, the evil zombie George Wickham.

Hot men on a hot day. All hot. All the time.

That female was blessed (by whom?) to shoot an endangered animal? What world do these people live in?

Leeanna Henderson said...

I hope Karma bites that Tess bitch in the ass. I hate people who hunt for the fun of it. I love the funny way you lured Carlos. That was so funny.

Perhaps Roseanna can get a job with her buddy the Orange Idiot in Chief. Be the new Hope Hicks or take over when Sarah eventually gets fired.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

"Grifters" is right . . . go get 'em, Judge Scarpulla!

Dave R said...

From what I understand, the idiot Jerk will be pulling the next Supreme Court Justice's name out of a hat.

Someone should tell Tess to stop lying, giraffes do not get darker with age. Oh, and didn't you like the way she used her phony faith? Most people pray for peace, or a cure for cancer, they don't pray for the chance to kill a giraffe.

So, does evil zombie George Wickham bite people?

I'm going to "poor" myself a drink and only comment on Carlos taking a ride. Jerry wouldn't have gotten that "subtle" remark either.
