I Hate Mondays Open Thread


This is a weird time of year. Officially it’n not a holiday, unless you are a teacher or a student. Our elected officials are off having fun, but government employees (except teachers) have to work or use their vacay days.

Retail employees, on the other hand, are swamped. Good luck getting into a mall or big box store and getting out again with anything in less than an hour or two.

As of this moment there is no news worth commenting on.

It wasn't me!

It wasn’t me!

    The Clintons took a stroll through NYC to show everybody that they are just one big happy family. Obviously Hillary wants to get attention, but come on folks – she looks ridiculous with that outfit! Yikes!

      Whenever he talks he makes me feel sooooooo stupid. For ever thinking when he was first elected “WCPGW”?

        Have a partner that scoffed at our then-associate’s concerns on the day after 08 election. I hoped he wasn’t as bad as I feared he could be. I was shaken from that delusion pretty quickly when one of the first things he did was order planning for shutting down Gitmo. It only went downhill from there.

    I have a problem. i have always liked men. I like the fact that they are different than me. I dated men, I married a man, I raised a man(who still gives me grey hairs). i thought I was a feminist because I want equal rights. Did not want a woman to be held back because of her sex and have the same opportunities as men. I raised my daughters to stand on their own to feet and be a partner in a marriage.

    Now I am being told that men are my enemy and they must be reeducated to become more feminine. What the Hell is that nonsense? I like a man to be a man not the girl next door

    MoveOn in a panic.
    Good news for the rest of us

  23. Myiq2xu says:

    The video begins with the 6-foot-6 biology student holding his hands up, armed with his ID as two officers from the 105th Precinct struggle to cuff him.

    “I immediately knew where this was going,” said Gregoire, whose left arm is in a sling because of injuries to his elbow from the beating.

    Authorities said as Gregoire refused to hand over his ID, they attempted to handcuff him and a struggle ensued. One of the officers was placed in a chokehold and backup was called.

    “I’ve been watching the video over and over. I didn’t use any foul language. I don’t think I should have been arrested in my home for walking my dog. I was scared for my life. They have the guns,” he said, as tears filled his eyes.

    Over five minutes into the eight-minute scuffle, Gregoire put one of the officers in a chokehold, according to the criminal complaint and the video.

    “I don’t recall putting the officer in a chokehold,” he said.

    The incident spilled into the house’s small vestibule when a dozen uniformed and plainclothes officers as well as detectives barged in.

    One officer immediately jumped in, repeatedly punching Gregoire in the face. His head smashed into the white plastered wall, creating a large hole, the video shows.

    “They used two full cans of Mace on me like a rabid animal,” he said.

    “Not one of the officers tried to deescalate the situation.”

    The Nassau Community College student was sprayed with pepper spray three times before he was cuffed and taken out of the house.

    Now he’ll try to sue.

      Dog laws vary greatly from place to place. We just moved from a place where dogs have to be restrained at all times. An electric fence didn’t qualify as a fenced yard. Now we live in a town where “under voice control” is the standard. A responsible dog owner knows the rules of wherever he happens to be or errs on the side of caution. This guy is an idiot. Normally I wouldn’t care, but guys like him limit the opportunities dog owners have to let their dogs enjoy going places with them. The stupider dog owners are, the more restrictive the rules for everyone tend to be.

      The rules for dogs on the beach are less strict in RI than in MA at least for the off season. Ellie got her first chance to romp on an ocean beach today. We took her to Newport. She loved chasing the waves and rolling around in the seaweed. You can bet I checked ahead of time which beaches were open to her and cleaned up after her. It’s a privilege I don’t want to lose.

    Or an automotive or aerospace worker – it’s pretty traditional for companies in those sectors to shut down between Christmas and New Years.

    Nonsense. The world is rapid for consuming nonsense and spewing it out as fact or reality or truth. People get shot by cops because they commit crimes. I am not going to get shot because I don’t play with fake guns, harass people, hang out late at night where I shouldn’t, refuse to comply when people especially officers ask me questions, etc., etc. Want to get shot–do what stupid people do and/or commit crimes. Being an officer does not mean you have to risk your life beyond the normal requirements of the job. You do NOT have to stop and ask someone if the gun is real–when you tell them to drop it and they don’t they are menacing and you have a right to use force to protect yourself. Officers do not have to have ESP, be punching bags, or wait until they are shot to react and protect themselves and others. And, if they do, then I suspect most will quit. I would. Also, why don’t black people cry when they shoot each other but only when they are shot by white people or cops? Simple question really….you don’t get any money for black on black crime. You get paid if you are lucky enough to have a relative get killed by a cop. White people need to wake up NOW. Of course, I will now be targeted for being a racist but if the truth fits I say it.

      While Tamir’s death was a tragedy, so were the little whities’ suspensions from elementary schools for pop tart and finger guns and pretend bow and arrow like Katniss. So confused, right?

      Walking the grandkid for a photo op does not scream vitality. She seems to have declned in vigor rather suddenly. Seems the kids are not thrilled to vote for her. Bill looks gaunt and really old.

      I’ve thought for awhile she’s dealing with some neurological issues. The hand on the stroller could be to steady herself.

      If I had to caption it, I’d be saying Please God, don’t let me fall down, please God, don’t let me fall down. There is nothing in her face or eyes that looks calm, or relaxed, or joyful. This is horrible.

      • leslie says:

        I had that same thought. I have a problem with my spine, and although it isn’t anything that will cause my death, it does cause pain if I’m on my feet for too long. And it helps to use a stroller or shopping cart to help ease the discomfort. I often have that look on my face when I’m out. The biggest problem is that surgery will help tremendously – can nearly eliminate the problem, but the surgeon who is the top guy here doesn’t accept Medicare. So, I’m on the lookout for another surgeon.
        At my age, which is only a year or so more that HRC, falling is a fear due to the back problem. BTW, that back problem (spinal stenosis) is not uncommon.
