I, too, was stunned at so many members of the GOP thanking Columbus for discovering America and calling him a hero. No wonder they don’t want history taught in schools.
Republican megadonor Miriam Adelson told would-be GOP presidential candidates—even Thing 45—that she is not getting involved in the 2024 primary.
No money for you! No money for you!
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson—or as I call him, Mr. Eraserhead—says he’s been “blown away” by calls for him to run for president, but says his focus is on his family.
For the love of the goddess, America? The Rock? Seriously?
Not so much a Would You Hit It, but another Which Chris Pine Would You Hit: formerly blond and shaggy Chris Pine from Don’t Worry Darling promotional tour, or the newly shorn silver fox Chris Pine?
I feel for you guys. I have too often had to make the decision to let one of my pets cross the bridge. And, it is never easy, always gut wrenching and has me sitting in my car sobbing afterwards. But it is a philosophy that grew out of something that happened many years ago. I had an Italian Greyhound named Spike. He had intestinal cancer and I did everything I could to try to save him. He had the best care that money could buy. But one day I got home from work and he had managed to drag his little body up on the bed and just lay there looking at me with a why are you doing this to me look. At that instant, and ever since, I make that decision based on the knowledge that there are just some things that my pets can not understand. One of them is the human love that wants them to continue when they are ready to go. None of them have ever had to cross the bridge without me sitting on the floor with their head in my lap telling them how important they are and how much they are loved. And, I have always gotten the look from them at that last instant thanking me for being a part of their lives and loving them enough to let them go. Now I am sobbing again so maybe I will comment on the rest of this post later, maybe not. Bless you and Carlos and Ozzo at this time.ReplyDelete
We have been down this road about ten times in 20 years and it's never easy, but it's what needs to be done for the best interests of the pet.Delete
Re: Cristóbal Colón née Columbus: Everyone who points the finger at him for all the woes that befell América are pointing at the wrong guys. Yes he seemed obsessed with finding a route to Japan (Cipango) and India - you would have too if you had to answer to your underwriters for a mer handful of gold nuggets and some parrot. But, after four voyages; being shipwrecked for one entire year in Jamaica and given the months that it took to sail back and forth across the Atlantic, only to die in disgrace in 1506 - you should look into the men who said: Hey, let's important enslaved Africans! It wasn't Colón, it was the men who came after he was long dead. The list is long, and name names; don't single out one man while letting others off the hook. Blaming Columbus for everything that happened after his death is lazy history and nothing more than a form of yellowfins journalism from the Dutch, English and French.ReplyDelete
I don't blame Columbus for what happened after his death, I blame him for being a racist, slave trading murderer. No excuses, whether others were as bad or not.Delete
I do hope Ozzo has a few good months (years?) left and passes eventually peacefully in his sleep.ReplyDelete
That's how I'd like to see him go, whenever he's ready.Delete
What kind of person cheers putting another person to death? Perhaps these people regret the forbidding of public executions?ReplyDelete
They use their Bible as a reason for killing.Delete
Yup, Carlos is having a hard time with this, thinking the worst, but I keep reminding him that our job is make Ozzo's life better in any way we can.Delete
If Ozzo could make it through the fence, he's not as old as you might think. I suspect many Republican congressman realized that only their MAGA base would love for them to support Columbus. Dwayne's going to play with this. The silver Chris Pine, that blond, girlish version was not at all impressive.ReplyDelete
Well, the chicken wire on the fence was partially down and the little blind dog found a gap and hopped out.Delete
Its weird to think of Chris Pine as old nowReplyDelete
Definitely would preferred him in his twenties
I kinda like the idea of a Young Chris and Silver Chris Sammich.Delete
Keep us posted on dear little Ozzo. He's a cutie. And I thought Buster was up there at 16.ReplyDelete
I swear Republicans just support every evil and every bad habit there is. Just because. What idiots. Fuck em'
Chris Pines can tap me even in my sleep if he wants. I have no problem being beside him...under him...or on top of him.
Ozzo will see the vet next week and our fingers are crossed that he's a fine old dog getting on in years.Delete
Chris Pine Anyway!
Hope Ozzo gets a good check up and all is well with him. It's hard when they get up there because you want to be selfish and keep them around but like you said, you have do what is right for them. The Republicans don't even seem to hid their hate anymore. That tweet. So awesome.ReplyDelete
We're hoping that if there's anything wrong with Ozzo it';s just simple old age.Delete
I do love that Tweet, too!
Oh, that tweet of the day is SO BAD, lol!ReplyDelete
That Tweet slayed me!Delete
Oh no! Not Ozzo!ReplyDelete
Hopefully he'll be ok.
And Chris Pine silver fox, of course. As for Kanye not getting another platform to spew his nonsense, well, good! Nobody needs his opinion. Love Cyndi. Arkansas can kiss my ass.
And celebrating Columbus in any way is celebrating a legacy of slavery and genocide. He was not innocent. After returning to Spain and reporting on the incredible wealth in the islands of the “New World,” the monarchs gave Columbus 17 ships and more than 1,200 men to plunder the Caribbean. His new expedition went from island to island gathering slaves and gold with unprecedented brutality. So there's that.
Ozzo is getting a little long in the tooth and I just want to make sure there are no ailments harming him.Delete
Love Chris--either way, Cyndi and LeBron.
Columbus is not worthy of celebration. He's worthy of death and dishonor.
Love the tweet. Silver foxes are the winning ticket. Sigh. Miriam Adelson? Does Meryl Streep play her in the movie?ReplyDelete
I agree about Silver Fox Chris, and Miriam should be so lucky if Meryl plays her.Delete
Had to pick myself up from the floor after reading the tweet! Too funny. Not so funny what you face with your little guy. Unfortunately it happens with every pet owner and you never want to make that decision. We're facing that with 2 of our current critters, a (mostly) blind white Schnauzer and our buddy Max, a beautiful salt and pepper Schnauzer. Which is how I would take Chris Pines...ReplyDelete
That Tweet slayed.Delete
The things we do for our pets in return for their unconditional love.
I like the loop-de-loop back to Chris!
I do find Dwayne Johnson entertaining but, oh come on!ReplyDelete
Funny how Ozzo with all his limitations managed to find his way out. My grandmother was supposedly nearly blind but she could still see the one little pimple on my face and also always know I was too skinny.
Dwayne Johnson is one of those actors I have never liked, and I cannot fathom the idea that people think he's "presidential."Delete
I think Ozzo walked along the fence and found a spot and just got confused and went through it. We are very lucky our neighbors found him.
HA! I'm loving that bottom tweet. Too funny.ReplyDelete
I hope things go OK with Ozzo and his checkup. Is that Cyndi Lauper in the picture? I wouldn't have even recognized her.
Wouldn't it be awesome if Miriam Adelson turned off the tap indefinitely? Now that Sheldon's gone maybe she doesn't have the same appetite for politics.
Our fingers are crossed with Ozzo; thanks.Delete
Yes, that is Cyndi; she looks good!
I'd love Miriam to keep her money out of the GOP. Out of politics completely.
Somedays words fail meReplyDelete
I know the feeling ...Delete
