i DON’T LIKE mONDAYS Open GThread

I don’t like Mondays. Oh, who am I kidding, I hate the motherfuckers. I don’t care much for Tuesdays either. But there are a lot of Mondays where I feel I can relate to Brenda Ann Spencer. Not for what she did, but for how she felt. One Monday she just snapped. I know that feeling.

You may have noticed that the headline of this post looks a little unusual. I did not do it that way on purpose. I was looking at the keys as I typed and when I looked up, there it was. It seemed apprpriate for a post about Mondays, so I left it there.

I usually don’t notice spelling, punctuation and grammatical erros on my comments and tweets until just a split nanosecond before my finger hits “Send.” But I n ormally proofread my posts before I publish them. But I usually notice a typo or two later on. Spellcheckers don’t always catch miswsing words which is my favorite type of typo. Believe it or not, I was in my 20’s before I realized that “manic” and “maniac” were two separate words and the first was not a misspelling of the second.

I did not watch GOT last night, so nobody say anything about the ending. I don’t want any spoilers

    Unfunny commie author Fran Liebowitz is known for “sardonic social commentary’ and being an all-around witch. She told Bill Maher Friday that President Trump should be turned over to the Saudis to be executed like Jamal Khashoggi since he “deserves” it.

    Khashoggi is rumored to have been chopped to pieces during his execution.

    “Certainly, he deserves to be impeached,” author Fran Lebowitz said during a discussion on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” about the president’s alleged crimes. “I mean, impeachment is just the beginning of what he deserves. Not even scratching the surface of what he deserves.”

    “Whenever I think about this and what he really deserves, I think, ‘We should turn him over to the Saudis, you know, his buddies. The same Saudis who got rid of that reporter, you know. Maybe they can do the same for him.’”

    She made her comments after Maher specifically asked her whether the president — the President who committed no crimes — should be impeached.

    The audience just laughed and laughed.

      All the haters are throwing the “impeach” word around. I don’t think they know what it means. If anyone deserves to be kicked in the ass, it’s Obama. I don’t care if he goes to jail or not, just strip him of his post-Presidential perks and pension.

      • lyn says:

        The Democrats will do that to Trump.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        Is Fran any relation to Fawn Leibowitz?

        Back in the days before the intertoobz, people had to discuss politics and religion f2f. If someone had started spouting off about a POTUS the way Fran did about Trump, they stood a good chance of getting a drink thrown in their face. And if the loudmouth was a guy, there might have been a fist attached.

        They just don’t get it, do they? Losing viewers and subscribers because Orange Man Bad is getting boring, even to what’s left of the Normal Dems. Anonymous sources and misleading clickbait headlines are so 2008, but it did get Obama elected and probably how we got Trump. Hopefully, how we’ll keep him too 🙂

        • Myiq2xu™ says:

          Remember when guys like Morton Downey Jr. and Jerry Springer ruled non-primetime television? Geraldo got his nose broken by a lesbian Nazi biker during one of his daytime talk shows. Kids in grade school would chant “Jerry! Jerry!” when they saw Jerry Springer on television.

          Where did they all go?

          All those tabloid pie-fight shows have been canceled. The news channels are still tabloidy, but there are no on-air brawls involving guests, the crew, the audience, and the beefy security guards they had to hire.

          Viewers got tired of the poo-flinging and changed the channel.

    Snarling orange ‘Trump baby’ blimp to mock U.S. president in Britain, protesters say

    LONDON (Reuters) – A blimp depicting Donald Trump as a snarling, nappy-wearing orange baby will fly outside Britain’s parliament when the U.S. president makes a state visit next month if protesters can raise 30,000 pounds ($38,000) for advocacy groups.

    Gorilla Pundit:

    “Progressives like to claim that the economic disparites between blacks and whites are due to white privilege. Ignoring the fact that Asian immigrants generally do quite well in this country, what can be done to lessen the disparity? Well, it’s not like white privilege is any big secret. Anyone can reach out and take some. Here’s how you do it: Go to school and study your ass off. Graduate from high school. Obey the law. Avoid recreational drugs and alcohol. Get a job. Consider no job, if it is honest work, to be beneath you. Work your ass off. Go to church. Avoid pre-marital sex and all-night partying. Do not have a child unless you’re married and are able to support one. Live beneath your means. Save money for emergencies. Do not hang out with criminals, slackers, or losers. This is white privilege in a nutshell. And what’s great about white privilege is, get this, you don’t have to be white to get it. These rules will work for anyone, regardless of race or religion or country of origin. All you have to do is follow them and good things will come your way. Usually. The problem is that, due to the unevenness of life, the benefits of white privilege are not evenly distributed, so it’s better if you live in a community where everyone practices these rules. In this way, you will maximize your chances of benefitting from white privilege. But you’re not done yet. You also must teach these rules to your children, and teach them to teach the rules to their own children. Because the benefits of white privilege accrue like compound interest over generations. And it only takes one generation, maybe two, to break this golden chain and then you’re back to square one, back to the misery, starvation, ignorance, and squalor that have been endemic to human societies since time immemorial. White privilege is the only path that has ever lead to prosperity for the many, rather than just for the few. So what this world needs is not less white privilege, but more.”

      In schools, instead of looking at how the good students become successful and emulate it, other kids whine about how much harder they have to work, how the smart kids have all the “luck”, how the teacher has favorites, etc. etc. While there are a few kids in every class who are naturally academically talented, the reality is most kids succeed in school by working hard every day. The build on their successes, and pick themselves up and try again when they fail. While colleges harp on grades, SAT scores, and other academic achievement, the thing they hardly ever ask for is a kid’s attendance record, and yet it’s one of the strongest predictors of success in college where showing up for class is a good part of the path to success.

    I can’t believe Kamala’s running on the Wage Gap. Zzzzzzzz. She needs to consult with Christina Hoff Sommers, a classic liberal, who straightened out this myth years ago (which gave us Trigglypuff at that event). If I may paraphrase Ms.Sommers…..

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      If women will work for 25% less than men, why would any employer hire men?

      • DeniseVB says:

        Women also graduate thinking they’ll go directly into a management position without the required grunt work and training for that company. I’ve always wondered if that were the same expectations from men? My dIL was a go getter out of high school and worked up to a mall Sephora store manager in a couple of years. When she changed over to Starbucks for better benefits, they hired her as a manager but she had to complete 8 weeks of grunt work first. Cleaning bathrooms and every other position she would be supervising and training. That made sense to me 🙂

    Great White Shark Spotted Off Greenwich Coast

    The sighting marks the first time one has been tracked in the area, according to Ocearch.org.

    • DeniseVB says:

      New England waters must be still chilly, is this a new Global Warming species of Great White Sharks????

      • elliesmom says:

        Great Whites and other sharks in this area like water temps from 55 to 75 degrees which are summer water temps off Cape Cod. The water is probably around 50 degrees now. It’s getting there, but not yet. But the water in Long Island Sound is usually around 5 degrees warmer so it’s on the low end of shark temp. There were little kids swimming in our lake today. Ellie spied them, and she took off into the water with them. The water is still pretty cold there, too.

        • DeniseVB says:

          We have them off NC and VA because the warm Gulf Stream is so close to our coasts. JAWS took place in July and as I recall a couple of deaths were in a pond inland. Disclaimer: I’m not a Marine Biologist, so I Binged it 😀

          • elliesmom says:

            The Gulf Stream moves around a bit, but it’s about 200 to 400 miles off the Cape before it veers to the east.

          • Myiq2xu™ says:

            Jaws takes place in June because Cheif Brody wanted to close the beaches but the city fathers of Amity Island were worried about 4th of July. The mayor tells the chief, “If we lose the 4th of July we lose the whole summer.”

            So they lost a couple more tourists.

            About the time my hair started falling out it also started to turn grey. That is really unfair. Pick one or the other, God.

            I was about 40 when I gave up and started shaving it. These days I use some cheap electric hair clippers to give it a buzz 1-2 times a week. When I get out of the shower I comb my hair with a towel.

    Okay, I saw it. I’m not as disappointed as I thought I would be. Although I avoided spoilers I was aware that lots of people were pissed off. I was unhappy with the way Danni died, but killing off major characters unexpectedly has been a theme since Season 1.

    They should make a new series centered on Arya as a wandering knight-errant in the tradition of The Knights of the Round Table. Kwai Chang Caine, Shane, and The Man With No Name.

    Too bad they killed off Sandor Clegane. He would have been a great traveling companion. They could bicker with each other between rescuing damsels in distress.

    If Jon Snow had flown off on Drogon after killing Daenerys (Hey, he’s a Targaryen, and dragons go with Targaryans like direwolves go with Starks.) Arya could be searching the world for him, and Jaqen H’ghar could pop up from time to time to give her advice, like a Westeros version of Master Po or Obi-Wan Kenobi as her mentor/master.

    I always knew this trick was lying. First, you sign NDAs *before* you fuck, not 10 years later. Second,.Trump’s type is models/playmates, not strippers/porn stars. And men stick with their type.

    This goes with the GOT thread up above:

    WTF was Cersei’s plan?

    Was she TRYING to commit suicide by dragon queen? She provokes her enemies into coming down to Kings Landing to kill her, and when they arrive and surround the city she has no battle plan to defeat them.

    When Jaime and Euron are fighting and Euron brags about impregnating Cersei, why didn’t Jaime tell him “That’s my child, you dumbass?”

    If I was a surviving member of the Greyjoy clan I would want to hunt down the writers and get revenge for all the crap they put Theon thru. And that goes for the Unsullied too.

    Why do they still have a Nightwatch?

    What happens to Sam and Gilly? Does he return home and become Lord Tarly, or does he return to the Citadel and finish his training to become a maester? What happened to the family heirloom sword that Sam gave Jorah?

    Last but not least – the knowledge deficiency among the writers extends beyond military affairs. They don’t have a clue about economics or trade either.

    Cohen Pushes Pelosi to Impeach Trump Because He’s ‘Raping the Country’

    Rep. Steve Cohen (D., Tenn.) on Monday called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, accusing him of “raping the country.”

    Cohen stood up and yelled for Trump to be impeached during a Democratic Steering and Policy Committee meeting with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), prompting Pelosi to push back saying, “This is not about politics, it’s about what’s best for the American people,” according to Politico.
