    • The Roots of Trump’s Policy of Separating Children from Parents
      So, you’ve all heard about this by now. It is, obviously, a terrible crime. And yeah, evil. It is an extension of Obama’s policy of holding families (without splitting them up, but still in terrible conditions). If you want to understand the link, read this Twitter thread.

Stroll: what Trump is not

Fine and Mellow.

My eyes are burning. One too many labs today. I’m going home to find that bottle of hourbon my sister put away last Saturday.

Billy Holliday, Lester Young, it doesn’t get much better than this.

Love is just like the faucet

It turns off and on

Julius Krein wrote an op/ed piece in the NYTimes saying he sorely regrets voting for Trump.

Love is just like the faucet

It turns off and on

Meanwhile, Gail Collins wrote “Gosh, I had NO idea Trump would turn out to be such an awful president. Who could have predicted??”

Sometimes when you think it’s on baby

It has turned off and gone


In other news, Bonnie Tyler is going to sing Total Eclipse of the Heart on a cruise ship – during the total eclipse.

Who could forget that totally over the top ballad about a headmistress having a Mary Kay LeTourneau moment with some of her students?

I can!

But the literal version is funny as hell:

  1. I love both the original song and the LV Version. 😆

    In defense of Tyler’s character, it’s fairly obvious that it’s all a dream sequence, so I doubt she would actually try to seduce any of them.

    None of us are morally responsible for the contents of our dreams. 😉

  2. In Europe (Barcelona, this time), they have Jihadis mowing down people using vans/buses/cars. Here we have the White Supremacists using the same tactic… and the buffoon is ok with it while yapping away nonsense on the other.

  3. Scott Adams (the Dilbert guy) – How To Know If You Are In A Mass Hysteria Bubble:

    If you’re in the mass hysteria, recognizing you have all the symptoms of hysteria won’t help you be aware you are in it. That’s not how hallucinations work. Instead, your hallucination will automatically rewrite itself to expel any new data that conflicts with its illusions.

    But if you are not experiencing mass hysteria, you might be totally confused by the actions of the people who are. They appear to be irrational, but in ways that are hard to define. You can’t tell if they are stupid, unscrupulous, ignorant, mentally ill, emotionally unstable or what. It just looks frickin’ crazy.

    The reason you can’t easily identify what-the-hell is going on in the country right now is that a powerful mass hysteria is in play. If you see the signs after I point them out, you’re probably not in the hysteria bubble. If you read this and do NOT see the signs, it probably means you’re trapped inside the mass hysteria bubble.

    p.s. Vili Fualauu and Mary Kay Letourneau split up in June after 12 years of marriage.

    • Adams is the one who has been in a hysteria bubble – the trump bubble from day one attributing some grand intelligence to trump’s deeds where there is none.

    • Scott Adams is hardly a reliable source of information.

      Why does Niles bring that sniffer of Illegitimate Preznit Covfefe’s taint here?

      Niles begins to remind me of that saying “keeping your mind so open that your brains fall out”.

      A bunch of people who used to post here decided to listen to/read/watch right-wing propaganda with an “open mind”–and they ended up drinking the Wingnut Flavor-Aid, and going off to form the Site We Do Not Name.

      At the rate he is going, Niles may soon suffer such a fate, as I almost did.

      • Adams is giving cover to all those fools like himself (and looking right at you, Althouse!) who ended up on the trump bandwagon for some superior intellect that eluded many of us.
