Oh yes–they ALL SHALL FALL!

(WASHINGTON) — Democrats demanded a special investigation Tuesday into possible links between President Donald Trump’s administration and Russia, including when Trump learned that his national security adviser, Michael Flynn, had discussed U.S. sanctions with a Russian diplomat. “The American people deserve to know the full extent of Russia’s financial, personal and political grip on President…

Dear World

Although I cannot, nor do not, speak for all Americans, I believe that the sentiments I express in this letter are felt by the majority of us, if not solely myself.

I’d like to think, and I hope most of the world understands the acts of one asshole and his associates do not represent the bulk of Americans.  His way is not the way the majority of us are.  His way is the way HE is, as well as most of his cronies.

I would apologize to the world for all the nuisances this oppressor of democracy has caused but I cannot. That’s his responsibility, one he will never live up to.  I will not apologize to the world on behalf of any of his supporters.  Many of them do not regret voting for him and for those that do, that’s their problem and they should be held accountable.

What I will do is stand with anyone who wishes to support Americans in speaking out against this asshole and his regime.

It is not easy being an American right now.  I have gone from what I once considered to be a “proud” American to an “embarrassed” American.  I, along with countless other Americans, sincerely hope you, as the rest of the world, do not hold the demeanor of our “leader” against us.  It’s bad enough we have to wake every day wondering, often fearing, what the little psychopath and his posse will do next to hurt us.

Thanks for listening, world.  Peace and love.

It can be hard to separate Mary Tyler Moore, the groundbreaking comic actor who has died at 80, from Mary Richards, the character she played on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. When she and erstwhile coworker Valerie Harper (whose MTM character had gotten a spin-off) were profiled in a TIME cover story in 1974, the…

ONE MORE

I wrote the following back on September 11, 2016, the first game of the football season:

Patriots football is FINALLY back!  What the hell took so long?

I have no clue what this season is going to bring, especially the first four games.  What I do know is that, as always, the New England Patriots are a TEAM.  They play like a TEAM, more than any other TEAM in the NFL.  There isn’t any room for individualizing on this TEAM because it isn’t about INDIVIDUALS–it’s about a TEAM!  We win as a TEAM, we lose as a TEAM.  Either you’re all IN or you’re all OUT.  Simple as that.

#ONTO2016

#PATRIOTS

patriots

This was the season in which Tom Brady would miss the first four games.  The rest of the league salivated, knowing this was our end.  We were sure to lose all four of those games.  We only lost one of those four games.  We would only lose one other game.

Seventeen weeks have passed.  Jimmy G. has played.  Jacoby B. has played.  Tommy B. finished his sentence and has ripped the NFL and the commissioner a new one.  Jamie C. has come and gone.  Glenn G. came and went and came back again, then I think he left again.  Rob G. came to play and ended up having back surgery.  Marty B. is glad to be here and we sure are glad to have him.  Dion L. and Chris H. have lit it up lately.  Can’t forget Jules E. and Danny A. Even Stevie G. has kicked it up a notch.

As I said back in September–and I repeat now–THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS ARE A TEAM.  They once again proved that tonight when they won their 11th AFC Championship.  This will be their 9th trip to the Super Bowl.  Seven of those trips have been under the helm of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.  To put those numbers into perspective, Tom Brady was drafted in 2000, shortly after Belichick became coach.

Seventeen years have passed.  Shall we go for ONE MORE?  YES!

Karma, baby…

She may be getting ready for a good, strong ASSHOLE smacking….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — Top intelligence officials last week told President-elect Donald Trump about an unsubstantiated report that Russia had compromising personal and financial information about him, a U.S. official said Tuesday. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the official was not allowed to publicly discuss the matter. The briefing about the document…

Really?

And if he said wolverines would make great pets, would you believe him?

(WASHINGTON) — Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions fervently rejected “damnably false” accusations of past racist comments Tuesday as he challenged Democratic concerns about the civil rights commitment he would bring as Donald Trump’s attorney general. He vowed at his confirmation hearing to stay independent from the White House and stand up to Trump when necessary. Sessions…

Farewell, Obama

President Barack Obama kept his composure throughout most of his emotional hour-long farewell address in Chicago on Tuesday night, but when the topic turned to his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, the tears began to well up. “Michelle LaVaughn Robinson of the South Side, for the past 25 years, you have not only been my…

Jealousy is so “over-rated”

So a very well-known actress wins an award and takes opportunity to dis ASSHOLE in the process. Of course we all knew ASSHOLE would be tweeting his little fingers off over it:

2017-01-09_09-29-00

 

Then ASSHOLE has the gall to do an interview with the New York Times to discount the reporter once again:

2017-01-09_09-20-05

 

This leaves me to wonder:

If ASSHOLE wasn’t mocking the reporter, then he must have something wrong with his hand:

2017-01-09_09-32-43

 

When I was a kid if you didn’t have a disability or something wrong with your hand and you made this kind of motion with your hand, you were considered gay. So maybe that was what ASSHOLE was trying to let everyone know. Since of course he wasn’t mocking the reporter.

As for reading his mind, what makes ASSHOLE think anyone would WANT to read his feeble mind? God knows what kind of shit must flow through that little pea brain.

Yes a lot of these people supported Hillary. She is, after all, the popular one. However, her name wasn’t discussed during last night’s Golden Globes. Yet ASSHOLE must bring her name up, even when it’s not relevant. Because it makes him feel better about his narcissistic self.

One more thing: in ASSHOLE’S opinion Meryl Streep is “over-rated”. Well you have to have been “rated” to be “over-rated” and with the awards she has won, I’d say her “rating” is a hell of a lot higher than ASSHOLE’S has ever been. Remember, he couldn’t even win an EMMY!

Twenty Things I Learned In 2016

20.  Being defensive about your work does not prove you have passion.  It may just prove you’re a narcissistic, egotistical jerk.

19.  The Circus is more than a big top and a bunch of clowns.  It’s a bunch of assholes too.

18.  Some people say they’re all about the “gang” but then only make themselves a priority—to hell with everyone else.

17.  There are so many people who say one thing and do another.

16.  It is best to walk away from people, things and situations that bring you down.

15.  Some people are never who you think they really are.

14.  Many musicians really do not live a long time.  Unless you are a member of the Rolling Stones

13.  There are quite a lot of guillable Americans.

12.  You can’t make something great again that was all ready great to begin with.

11.  Never accept something you don’t believe in.

10.  For every evil person, there are at least ten good people.

9.  Never go to Canada on Canada Day unless you are prepared.

8.  It’s no fun having C-diff.

7.  It is possible to be at the bottom and still come out on top.

6.  Curses don’t last forever.  Just ask the Cubs.

5.  The Jets and Browns really do suck.

4.  Even without Brady for four games, the Patriots are really that good.  Then again, I didn’t just learn this in 2016.  I’ve known it for a long time.

3.  The people that like you the least are the ones who will follow you the most.

2.  It’s not wise for certain people to possess guns.

1. Apparently anyone can be elected “president”.  Even assholes.
