Jaw-dropping Tuesday

Soooooooo…Rep. John Conyers, D-MI, has been revealed to be a serial sexual predator, and guess where it’s NOT trending. Yep, Twitter took the trend off the list after this Buzzfeed report blew it up.

The story is also blacked out on CNN, despite the networks breathless focus on Roy Moore and Charlie Rose.

In other news, Charlie Rose showed just how out of touch he is when he told a TMZ reporter that he did not think his actions amounted to “wrongdoing” and then released a statement strongly implying that he thought at least some of the 8 women who’ve accused him of acts–including parading naked around them without consent–were into him.

“It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken,” Rose said.

But, hey, you know, it’s #Catsgiving. This is an open thread.

      20th Century Fox reaches $90 million settlement of shareholder claims against Fox officers and directors regarding sexual harrassment scandel that cost Ailes and O’Reilly their jobs

      If more companies get hit in the pocketbook by shareholders, maybe there won’t be as much coverup of wrongdoing. Now Congress is another matter. They have exempted themselves from public scrutiny. We can’t use the ballot box to get justice if we don’t know about their misdeeds.

    Yes, of course he was.

    Weee-Hooo, a Lola post. ❤ Sweetie, I thought of you today when my weekly Travel Zoo email arrived today with Thailand being in this week's Top 20. It's a great site to subscribe to, but you have to be flexible on the dates, I've used it many times !


    • Thanks for the tip, Denise. Have you used Tripmasters.com? That’s who we used for Italy and they were near perfect. I’ll keep an eye on both sites. 🙂

      • DeniseVB says:

        I use Travel Zoo for NYC hotels mostly. Like on today’s list, was crazy low price (under $200) for a 900sf kitchen 1 br suite at the Lombardy Hotel on the upper east side, when I punched in my dates for my April event, it was almost $500/nt.

    Oh my! He’s back in the news.


    Scaramucci freewheels on Friedman’s faith, ‘Shiksas’ and Twitter account in Jerusalem

    Casting aside political correctness, he told reporters at the King David Hotel, “I have the benefit of being an American who is not a Jew. I am a Goy who knows the difference between a Sheigitz (non-Jewish male) and a Shiksa (non-Jewish female).”

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      This is an example of the inability to comprehend others may not share ones views and that perhaps certain topics and opinions should be kept to oneself and that one should show a modicum of respect.

      This afternoon, a staff member from on of the other agencies in our space, that neither I nor my boss know other than in passing, popped into to deliver in a very loud voice the put down of POTUS as “an old lunatic, mean trickster and human reject.” An insult from yes – that shinning beacon of light from North Korea Kimmy Boy. The staff member was absolutely gleeful and is at least 50 years old (so no millennial snowflake does not cover his butt).

      This is a type of behavior I have never seen outside DC government. Prior to this, such behavior, especially in Northern VIRGINIA would have been considered not just unprofessional but boorish and rude regardless of one’s political opinions and a horrid faux pas to be praising such a horrid human being . This is what Barry and Hildegarde and the three Micks (McMuffin, McCain, McConnell) and their respective gangs of the DNC and GOPe have given us.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        well not where I intended – lately wordpress just keeps jumping about on me. but close enough since I am sure wonder staff person has no appreciation for the fact that Bernie would take away his house and give it someone else.

    A Marine veteran buddy of mine sent me this, I thought I’d pass it along to remember the sacrifice made at The Battle of Tarawa, 20-23 November, 1943
    The Japanese commander of the island said it would take a million men a hundred years to take the island.
    US Marines did it in 3 days at a terrible cost, 1,000 kia and over 2,000 wounded.

      She’s right. It IS an unpopular – and illogical – opinion. Injustice sucks for both genders, plus don’t slightly more men support significant others and dependents than do women? Wouldn’t they then suffer, too?

      • 49erDweet says:

        She’s been smokin’ that funny stuff way too long. Victims have always been able to “tell the truth”. What she’s referring to is “being believed”.

        • 49erDweet says:

          And frankly I tend to believe most women’s claims on this issue…..until they start making it part of their resumé, and then it becomes creepy.

          • Myiq2xu™ says:

            The credibility of a witness is always an issue. I tend to find witnesses more credible if they come forward promptly and make a full, complete, and consistent report to the police or other proper authorities without the assistance of any reporters, lawyers, or advocates.

          • 49erDweet says:

            Absolutely agree, but there’s also what they say when the finally reach a place of relative safety after being be under duress.

        • swanspirit says:

          I believe most victims, unless they suddenly appeared on the eve of an election, and the story is politically expedient. Then for some reason, I tend to be sceptical.

        A pee can is something you urinate in my dear Cisco.

          When I had knee surgery, I actually had to use one for the first couple of days.
          My knee was wrapped in a plastic do-hickey that circulated cold water from a cooler to help reduce swelling.
          I couldn’t drag that contraption to the washroom.

    • DandyTIger says:

      {{in a southern accent}} The proper way to pronounce this in Virginia is of course Puh-Khan. Only heathens, vagrants, and other ne’er-do-well’s pronounce it the other way.

      • Somebody says:

        Same here, pee-can is associated with rednecks, lower class, wrong side of the tracks. Most people say puh-khan here, same in Alabama and the Carolinas, but most everybody I know from Georgia says pee-can.

        Another oddity, most people here say puh-khan but there is a road on the north side of JAX that is pronounced pee-can park road. That road was in the boonies in a redneck area at the very northern end of the county, it’s still rural but is starting to grow.

        Soooo I normally say puh-khan unless I’m saying the name of the road then I say pee-can. My kids used to love to get me to give directions to try and get me to say pee-can, again because the pronunciation is associated with class-culture-social status.

          And don’t forget “When Harry Met Sally”.

      • taw46 says:

        Guess everyone in my small town in South Carolina were rednecks and on the wrong side of the tracks, because we all grew up calling it pee-can pie. 😉

      I did a small amount of work on a matter involving legalized pot this year and, even having been already somewhat anti pot for reasons that are better described to a therapist, I was surprised to learn about some of the negative effects, especially environmental, of large scale commercial cultivation.

    Today’s Blind Items – St. Charles House Of Horrors

    It is still there. It is still owned by the same people who have owned the house for hundreds of years. There is a sprawling house on St. Charles Street in New Orleans that has been used by politicians and celebrities as a secret pleasure den for almost 100 years.
