Be careful out there. Enjoy a cozy weekend home and know that your public officials have every possible scenario well in hand.
Half the fun is sitting back and watching the Weather Channel folks make up asinine storm names and implode over an unexpected dose of “winter” during…winter.
…the political implications of the lyric never hit me until I heard this version
we are silently bowing to too many Neon Gods today.
Of one of my favorite Taupin/John songs
Ah, those Krazy Krauts
German man dies after blowing up condom machine
The 29-year-old was hit in the head by a steel shard
A German man died on Christmas Day after blowing up a condom dispenser with a homemade bomb in a botched robbery, police say.
The 29-year-old and two accomplices attached the bomb to the vending machine in a quiet street before taking cover in their vehicle.
But the victim did not close the door in time and was struck in the head by a steel shard from the explosion.
or maybe cry; you see, we just sent off the last tuition check for Daughter’s college.
So I pulled out an old Australian Shiraz to celebrate
…Congress ratified these.
When certain people are speaking and acting these days, it’s hard to remember we still have them.
NEVER. LET. THEM. GO.
…UNITED STATES MARINES CORPS!
We go back a ways with our family involvement, from Grampa who fought through Central America in the Banana Wars…
…to both of HIS sons (and a son-in-law). THIS handsome young uncle here…
…hung around the Corps long enough for a certain young boot camp graduate to be able to attend his retirement…
…and heartily concur with her choice in men. 😉
And that’s the just scratching the surface of Leathernecks in the family.
OO-RAH and Semper FI!
…next time you’re tempted to go into the bathroom with the little silhouette of YOUR gender on it.
Sex-Segregated Public Restrooms Are an Outdated Relic of Victorian Paternalism
“…Many states follow the guidelines laid out in the Uniform Plumbing Code, which stipulates that “separate toilet facilities shall be provided for each sex,” with exceptions for very small businesses as measured in square footage and/or customer traffic. In the eyes of the law in these places, a business with two unisex toilets can be considered to have no toilets at all, since neither facility explicitly serves men or women.
Such laws date back to 1887, according to Terry S. Kogan, a University of Utah law professor and a contributor to the book Toilet: Public Restrooms and the Politics of Sharing. One hundred and twenty-seven years ago, Massachusetts passed the first law mandating gender-segregated toilets, and many states quickly followed suit. Many of those laws have never been substantially modified, with obvious exceptions in progressive enclaves like D.C. and San Francisco, meaning that much of the United States’ toilet-related building codes reflect a literally Victorian prudishness that we might mock in other contexts…”
Where he makes his mistake is that me and my thugs have NO PROBLEM invading the men’s room when the ladies’ line becomes overwhelmingly long, or there’s only two single bathrooms. The thing is, we make sure THERE ARE NO MEN IN THE HEAD when we do it. It’s being polite, not Victorian. Also, I have no desire to share a toilet with a strange man (whatever SEX he’s claiming at the time), so add selfish to that list as well.
You had my vote for President

…or possibly shitty parenting, or any combination of the two, right? And it’s a well known fact that of crazy homicidal people can’t GET guns, they’ll never kill anyone.
Ian Mercer, Oregon shooter’s dad: ‘That’s what guns are, the killers’
The father of Oregon gunman Christopher Harper-Mercer argued Saturday that his son never would have killed nine people last week at Umpqua Community College if he wasn’t able to get his hands on a gun in the first place.
“How on earth could he compile 13 guns? How could that happen?” Ian Mercer asked in an interview outside his California home Saturday, CNN reported.
we love you so!
Just don’t you DARE go spending it on anything “nice”, as in “nicer crib than the guy down the street’s dump”, because IT HURTS FEELINGS!!!
Visible wealth makes economic inequality worse, experiments show
The economic gap between the rich and poor becomes even wider when the inequality is made visible, a new Yale University study says.
Researchers from the Yale Institute for Network Science (YINS) found that when people didn’t know their neighbors’ financial status, they cooperated and interacted much better with each other. But when people were able to see a significant gap in wealth between themselves and their neighbors, the social fabric began to unravel — and the gap in wealth became wider than when the economic inequality was invisible.
Rich bitch face is NO WAY to live. Get you a bag o’ cans.
Yogi Berra has died.
These two upstanding young citizens belong in JAIL and may they NEVER see the inside of a football uniform again. They also need to FIRE the athletic director, who could only call the vicious assault his players perpetrated “disturbing”, especially coming, as it did, after two OTHER civic minded John-Jay players had been ejected from said game for THEIR behavioral issues.
On the brighter side of Saturday: IRISH!!!
Markets down sharply around the world
and the Dow is currently due another 350 lower.
My bourbon stocks at home will be sorely tested over the next few days I reckon.
…is pretty damned pleasant
Well, for me at least.
For my Dear Bride I’m not so sure…
Must be some of those crazy Taylor Swift fans or for sure it was some of those barbaric redneck Toby Keith fans
HOLMDEL — State Police were scouring the woods for a suspect in a multiple shooting outside the PNC Bank Arts Center late Monday night, an agency spokesman said.
The two victims were taken by helicopter from the scene following the shooting, which occurred shortly after 11 p.m., Sgt. First Class Gregory Williams said. K-9 and other units were searching the surrounding woods for a suspect as of 11:45 p.m., Williams also said.
A concert, part the Forest Hills Drive Tour featuring artists J Cole, Big Sean, YG and Jeremih, was held earlier that night.
Oh, it was a rap concert.
And the guy ran off into the woods.
Weather was perfect, and everything was just…charming
and as they were loaded in to the gate
and they’re off!
American Pharoah pulls away! The roar in the stands was nothing short of amazing.
What a lovely, pleasant day.
