Sporadically Gnuz Special

Howdy Critters.
Sorry for the lengthy absences, but life, family and work seem to take up 105% of my time these days.

Not to mention the miserable state of our dis-union.

But, here’s another episode of Sporadic Gnuz, pried from the cold dead hands of the Guttenberg digital press.

Supreme Court on 5-to-4 vote blocks restrictive Louisiana abortion law
H/T Wa Po

A big fat up yours to the tiny horde of internet trolls predicting a swift end to Roe v. Wade.
And, not just up yours, but perhaps with a yard long strand of rusty barbed wire.

Young People Really, Really Want a Green New Deal
H/T The Nation
More heartening Gnuz.
Now we just need to get the hell out of their way and kick out all the azzhole politicians in their way.

AOC Lays Bare How Dark Money Corrupts Everything
In Thursday’s hearing on HR 1, Democrats’ ethics bill, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used her time to demonstrate how dark money corrupts everything.

Open Thread, cherish it and tuck it into bed tonight!

    I was eating breakfast with my 10 year old granddaughter and I asked her, “What day is tomorrow?”
    Without skipping a beat she said, “It’s President’s Day!”
    She’s smart so I asked her, “What does President’s Day mean?”
    I was waiting for something about Obama, Bush, or Clinton, etc.
    She replied, “President’s Day is when the President steps out of the White House, and if he sees his shadow, we have another year of Bullshit.”
    You know, it hurts when hot coffee spurts out of your nose.

  2. “Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?”

    Someone on Quora asked “Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?” Nate White, an articulate and witty writer from England wrote this magnificent response.

    A few things spring to mind.

    Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem.

    For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace – all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.

  3. “As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

    ― H.L. Mencken, On Politics

  4. You think you’ve heard this one before…? (It reminds me of Stevie Wonder’s Master Blaster)
    Lyrics may not be precise

    Er ist nicht mein Präsident Lyrics

    The first time I saw him in a movie
    Was in black and white on my colour TV
    He was a big star in a football game
    When shit hits the fans now we’ll know who to blame
    He’s out of time and old
    For him we must pray
    For if he should die, in comes the Bush CIA

    Er ist nicht mein Praesident
    Ich bin aus Amerika
    Er ist nicht mein Praesident
    Ich bin aus Amerika

    At the convention he show his hand
    He plays a small part just to act in command
    I looked in his eyes, looked right past his face
    A contest means money but a race means a race

    He’s honest and he means well so now we must pay
    For if he should die, in comes the Bush CIA

    Er ist nicht mein Praesident
    Ich bin aus Amerika
    Er ist nicht mein Praesident
    Ich bin aus Amerika

    He promised the world to be president
    He could feed our poor ones with what he has spent
    To those who’re not lazy, jobs he will bring
    But poverty and wealth they to him are the same
    He’s wise beyond my years
    Make time what you say
    For if he should die
    In comes the Bush CIA

    Er ist nicht mein Praesident
    Ich bin aus Amerika
    Er ist nicht mein Praesident
    Ich bin aus Amerika

  5. Does he even know where he is most of the time?

  6. It’s a funny thing…. how when you’re dead, you don’t know you’re dead….and those around you are the ones who suffer.

    The same thing happens when you’re stupid….
