"Durbin’s integrity and honor"

Hard to believe your keyboard didn't melt down just typing that. Or that our monitors didn't fritz trying to display it.

At the very least, hearty guffaws at the very idea.

Stormy's note was awfully well done. Thorough, to the point, praising Trump, even getting a plug in for her book. Other actresses could take a cue from this sharp gal. Maybe I should web-search on her… 8O her book, I mean. Yeah.

Really? Bill's a liar? Is water wet? Does fire burn? :D

Thanks for this post - I've not read much about the details of exactly how the Clintons frisked Haiti. I have seen several remarks from Haitians about the Clintons - they aren't positive.

I've been, slowly, trying to get into the webworking groove again, and this post inspired me to a new one reflecting on the old liar.

These are really great. Fishing polar bears was hilarious and ingenious. BoB, when did you find the time to get out and create all those clever snow sculptures? ;)

And this post is really timely. Alla y'all up North may be sick of it, but "life gave us snowflakes" for the first time this winter down here in NE OK. Woke up to a nice dusting making everything pretty. Not enough to make snowmen, though. Snowmice maybe.

And unlike the usual melts-the-next-day Okie snow, this should be here a little while because we're never getting above freezing for the next several days!

After that, back to the fifties and sixties. Whew! Rough winter. :D

Nancy Pelosi Scoffs At ‘Crumb’ Bonuses

I'm down here in The City visiting Mom this weekend, and as always got to thumb through the few sheets that are all that's left of the city's newspaper. As always, the editorial cartoon was stupid and irritating. (You can see it here -- I won't dignify it by re-printing it.

Panel 1, a smiling Wal-Mart employee exhults over his bonus check.

Panel 2, a pac-man thingy labeled "thousands of layoffs" is gulping.

Um… whuuut? I think the days of mass layoffs due to the Obamaconomy are behind us.

After seeing that, I did manage to avoid reading the editorials or letters to the editor, which tend to be of similar caliber.

…calling on the men and women in Congress to wear black to President Trump’s upcoming State of the Union address in solidarity with [whatever]…

Someone suggested the other side should wear white, preferably 1970s zoot-suitish style with broad-brim hats and those big collar flaps.

Things do seem to be becoming more clearly black and white a lot of late. Strange, isn't it? Almost like watching the separation of wheat and chaff…!

This is great news! I can't wait to move back to Chicago now.

Oh, wait, wait…

They declared sub-freezing temperatures illegal, too, right?

…“gender pay inequality” in Hollywood…

Hahaha. This is even less economically aware than the WNBA player the other day, complaining about the gals not making as much as the guys in the NBA. That's right, sweetheart, and no amount of liberal-think will change what sports fans want to watch - and it's not WNBA.

Sexism is real. It's built into nature. We're so far from equal, it's like the two sexes are alien races sharing the planet - alien races who could not reproduce without each other, and then you see how sexist nature really is, as woman bears the brunt of pregnancy, childbirth, nursing, and, most likely, the majority of diapering. ;)

I'm pretty happy with the arrangement, and after more than four decades together, Milady also seems satisfied with our separate roles and rigors. But I might be fooling myself, 'cause, again, I'm a guy.

I googled “circle jerk.” Now I need a shower. Yuck!

Pardon my laughing at this, cth. They have a saying over in the lads' locker room that is Ace - if you don't know what something means, don't ask, and for heaven's sake, don't search on it! A rule of thumb I've often regretted violating. Why I use DuckDuckGo as a search engine - they don't keep records (supposedly) of my search terms.

Just checked out the A&J color dailies this week compared to last. Looks t'me like a more subtle, woodsy palette, shaded backgrounds. Nice.

In '96 I got a website, thinking to advertise my Matt Feazell-inspired xerographed, monochrome (of course) "mini-comics." I scanned one comic as promo - and colored it - and as it went up on the web, the light bulb went on over my head. Easy color! World wide (potentially) distribution! No paper, xeroxing, staples or mailing! Print is dead!

Yeah, seems like this color thing, and this web thing, might be here to stay.

Always great to re-visit the classics.

The Gun Knuts on o'Spades's forum suggest that Glocks are not the safest pistols, but it's a muchos satisfying little ad.

Navarro went ageist, too - the Trifecta! (Oprah didn't even get that with her "racism will end when all the old white people die." Forgot to specify old white men.)

In the "three fingers pointing back at you" department, folks don't realize that pointing out the ethnic/sex nose-counts utterly speaks to the racism/sexism of the nose-counters! Non-racists/-sexists are looking at other factors, relevant factors, like qualification and character.

But, what can I say about it? Not that I ever think about it, but, after all, I'm one of those old, privileged, white Anglo-Saxon Protestant (remember "WASP"?) males, so naturally I wouldn't notice the quasi-conscious selective bias that keeps qualified non-whites/-males out of positions of power.

Under Obama, states were advised the DOJ would not obstruct states that legalized marijuana, despite the fact that marijuana use is illegal under federal law. Trump’s DOJ has just rescinded all that policy.

Some online commenters complain that Sessions's DoJ has done nothing notable, and now mock him for going after potheads.

The main reason pot got banned Federally was a combination of manipulative press and alcohol-fighters looking for work after repeal. There was never a good reason for it to be illegal, especially Federally. I've seen far more damage done by bad law and black market than by pot use.

Trump seems to be giving it back to Congress and the States whether to continue to have, and resume enforcing, Federal Prohibition. Exactly what needs to happen. The whole thing of lax enforcement is a crisis of the rule of law. Enforce or repeal!

And I'm saying this as a lifelong "libertarian" about Prohibition, and as the creator (decades ago) of Head Shop Comix (mostly safe for work).

cth: 2017 Anti-Trump FAKE NEWS Wrapup
This is just a partial list.

Yeah, my first thought on seeing the headline was, it would have to be partial or take over the blog.

Especially if you accompanied it with a list of Trump's #winning works from the past year.

Turned out, 2017 was nothing like I expected.

I expect 2018 to be the same. :)

BoB: new format looks an awful lot like the old one.

Oh, good. I thought maybe I was missing something. :D

It's just hard to improve upon PPPerfection, y'see.

Wow, thanks, Pete! I wasn't aware it was that cold until you pointed it out.

(He wrote, prying more ice off his fingertips to continue typing)

Seriously, great collection of winter humor. I liked the frozen ghost.

I spent two winters at Beloit, and fourteen in Chicago. I will not complain about a week of below-freezing in Oklahoma. Okay, I will, too, complain, but it will always end with, "at least I'm not in Chicago!"

Happy New Year, Pete. Looking forward to what you'll have for us in 2018, a/k/a Trump Year 2.
