One of these is not like the others

Alyssa Milano tweeted the graphic above with the caption you see below it. Bless her heart, she probably thought it was clever. It was intended as a shot at Trump, but one person replied that he saw three unhappy scenes and one where people were smiling. His conclusion was Trump makes people happy.

There are four media narratives depicted by those four scenes. “Bill Clinton feels your pain.” “George W. Bush is a compassionate conservative.” “Obama cares.” “Trump just loves attention.”

Those narratives affect how news is gathered and presented. Photographers take a zillion pictures of our Presidents. Now that cameras are digital they don’t have to worry about the cost and hassle of developing film. But they usually only publish one or two pictures out of every hundred that are taken. The news editors decide which pics to publish, and they look for the ones that fit their narratives.

Donald Trump showing compassion does not fit their narrative. So the pictures of Trump consoling grieving victims and families don’t get taken. If they get taken they don’t get published. If they don’t get published you can’t google them.

And that’s assuming that Google doesn’t tweak their search algorithm to make the pics hard to find.

The old adage says that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” But some pictures lie. They don’t actually show what they seem to depict. Take the picture below. It appears that Obama is checking out some underage girl’s ass. But if you watched the video of that scene you would see that isn’t what he was doing. (Sarkozy yes, Obama no.) Seriously, Obama checking out a girl? As if.

Gotta go, time to take Mom to church.

    Racists never apologize.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I think Fox forced Tomi Lahren to apologize about bringing up Kamala’s history of adultery. Tomi was so coy, something to the effect, I shouldn’t have brought that up because there’s so much more to criticize Kamala for and for that I am sorry. But Tomi got that out there as no one else could. 😀

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      That’s a game the media plays. Post something false and inflammatory, then later do a half-hearted retraction. But the damage is done because the lie gets all the attention. It’s like Russian collusion – there is no amount of evidence that will ever budge people like the ones at TC.

      • 1539days says:

        Then there’s the “I apologize if my completely true and accurate statement offended your totally overblown and irrational sensibilities.”

    Aw, Bill’s button got pushed.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Yeah, I’ve been following that and knew there would be blowback from his own side. Why support something that gives the Dems another inch for gun grabbing and they’ll still hate Trump. Bill picked the wrong hill to die on.

      • lyn says:

        Yep. Here’s this.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        Don Surber nailed it – people need to be patient and not freak out when Trump talks about making deals. He makes offers that the Democrats can’t accept. They would be good deals for the Dems but if they took them their radical fringe base would riot. So Trump looks moderate and sane while they look like lunatics.

        • lyn says:

          I just read that.

        • Angie says:

          I said from the beginning the red flag stuff was the same as when Trump offered DACA deal in exchange for wall funding. He knew Congress wouldn’t pass anything but he also killed that line of attack against him from the Dems.
          Notice how we haven’t heard the Dems crying about “Dreamers” since then?
          That isn’t a coincidence.

        If he timed his checks, he’d know when to off himself since 30 minutes is long enough to die. That is. If he did it. LOL. I’m surprised none of the conspirators have been thinking, he escaped and the “death” is a coverup.

      The left will never be happy, I figured that out in 2008.

        I figured that out in the 80’s.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I wasn’t paying attention when Reagan was President, was he really as hated as Trump?

          • 1539days says:

            Similar. He was alternatively an evil mastermind and a dottering nincompoop.

          • Woke Lola says:

            Oh, God, yes. I was a child and I LOVED Ronald Reagan. I could see as a 9 year old how superior he was to Jimmy Carter. The noise was so loud that by the end of the decade I was a brainwashed, duped Democrat, captive for some 20+ years before I regained my senses. It was INSANE the hostility thrown at RR, and how he would just shrug it off. GHWB was incapable of such confidence.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Like I tell my life long conservative friends, you had to live in the liberal trenches to really understand how bad Democrats were. My dh was a non-activist Republican and put up with me. When he dropped me off at the train station to go to a anti-GWB-War march in DC, I asked him, does this bother you that I do this stuff. He told me, nah, it’s why we go to war to protect idiots like you, then he kissed me goodbye. LOL,

        • DeniseVB says:

          I read Nancy’s book “My Turn” , her knives were out. I do remember Land of Confusion, at least videos were creative then, unlike the Kill Trump ones the rappers come out with. Oh yeah, social media makes it worse.

          • Myiq2xu™ says:

            It was nothing like now. Back then they were making jokes that even GOPers could laugh at. Now it’s just hate and bile. The entire Left is filled with deranged hatred. As Kurt S. observed, they don’t want to win, they want us dead.

          • DeniseVB says:

            It’s sad, really sad. Meanwhile, the new #WalkAway testimonials are popping up from Dems, “I don’t have time to write or video a testimonial right now, just get me the hell outta there!” I think the Normals are waking up and have no other place to go 😀 Even those are getting about 2500 likes now. We understand and Welcome 😉

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        Twitter is not real life. You never see NeverTrumpers in RL, but they’re all over Twitter, social media, print media, online media, and television. All the “conservative” journalists and pundits who aren’t on Fox News are NT.

    “Benghazi Car Bomb Attack Targets UN Officials, Leaving 2 Dead & 10 Wounded

    The expanding chaos of the renewed war in Libya, increasingly a ‘failed state’ if there ever was a prime example of one, now approaching a decade on from its so-called “liberation” in 2011 by US-NATO forces, keeps providing daily and weekly reminders of the Obama-Hillary Clinton legacy of ‘humanitarian intervention’.

    On Saturday what is being reported as either a car bomb or possibly a roadside bomb ripped through a neighborhood in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi near United Nations offices.”

    NY Times Really Wants To Talk About Your Manicured Lawn And ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

    But maintaining them can contribute to climate change. So, why even have lawns?

    • Miranda says:

      I like the trend toward using native plants and grasses instead of lawns. It’s much more interesting and eventually lower maintenance. My front yard is almost all natural area and moss. It’s very private.

    • DeniseVB says:

      The comments are crazy, and a “few he ain’t dead” too. Ok, it’s been 48 hours, I’m getting impatient.

      • Constance says:

        There is something really off about that photo of Epstein supposedly dead being moved on a stretcher. I’ve worked in institutions that have deaths and they have ways of moving bodies discretely so they don’t freak people out. It is just a bizarre picture meant to make some point.

      • Constance says:

    Whenever someone tweets about white supremacists I’m going to ask them “How many white supremacists are there?”

    Nobody ever gives out numbers. They just say they are “growing.”

        C’ville was supposed to be their big muscle-flexing rally. That rally was basically every white supremacist west of the Mississippi and some from farther west. You could have fit them all in a medium-sized movie theater.

  27. Myiq2xu™ says:

    I am getting a bumper crop of cherry tomatoes this year, which is weird because I didn’t plant any. The extreme heat last month damaged a lot of my other tomaters by making them split on top. But if you slice off the top 1/3 the rest of the tomater is fine. Right now I can’t give them away fast enough. My neighbors like the tomaters but they are less enthused about the zucchinis.

    I’m still getting some sunburned tomaters even though I planted them in a shadier location. I mean more shade, not more shady.

    My watermelons were coming in really nice and then they got some fungus or disease and that was it.

    I got a couple new sprinklers that cover more area but put out less volume. That means I don’t have to move them as often.

    My herba buena plants haven’t started sexing yet but I think I have two females and one male. I keep having problems with yellow leaves, which indicates a nitrogen deficiency. Blood meal isn’t helping.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Do you have “navel orange” trees? We did in Coronado. I’m asking because they’re out of season in Virginia now, the imports from a shithole country are about $1 an orange locally. Special Greg needs his fix so I pay. 😛

    • blowme0bama says:

      Dad grew tomatoes all his life. After he retired, he built two 18′ x 40′ hot houses and grew them hydroponically in the winter. He always had some tomatoes that would split. I don’t know if there really is a known cause of that or not. He had me working a huge, like 1/4 to 1/2 acre family garden for him during summers from about the age of seven or to the age of 13. I hated that shit so much that I blocked every bit of it out. If there was a known cause for splitting skins on tomatoes, I have no memory of him ever communicating it. Also, everything comes in at once in a garden – you can’t give enough away so you have to store it.

    • blowme0bama says:

      Yellow leaves can also mean too much water and the roots hairs are rotting.

    • blowme0bama says:

      If blood meal hasn’t helped, you don’t have a nitrogen deficiency. You may have overfertilized the things.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        I scraped off the top layer of soil and did a flush, then put in new soil and some organic fertilizer. (chicken shit and bull shit.)

        • John Denney says:

          Chicken droppings are really strong and will burn plants.

        • blowme0bama says:

          Container plant problems are almost never too little nutrients assuming any decent store bought soil. They are 99% of the time attributable to one of three things: too much water, too many nutrients, improper light (if indoors).

    • John Denney says:

      I like to quarter tomatoes lengthwise, cut each quarter crosswise in thirds, then put them skin side down ( so they don’t stick) on a jellyroll pan and dry them in the oven on low (170 or less) until they’re rock hard.
      You can put them in soups and they’ll re-hydrate, but I like to grind them to powder in a blender or coffee/spice grinder. The powder is nice for marinades or to sprinkle on fried eggs, meats, inside sandwiches, flavor a soup, or to make a quick tomato soup.

    • John Denney says:

      The Denver Post published a .pdf containing images of all the documents in the case, and I have a copy.
      One of the docs was the diary of one of the shooters. In one part, he says he was made to go to anger management classes where he was told to be nice. “Why should I?” he asked his diary, and went on to say that we evolved to where we are today by f***ing and fignting, so why stop?
      Later he said that the High School was to be just the start of culling the herd of useless people who just consume resources, especially Christians.

      To my knowledge, that got no press. Where do you suppose he got such ideas?

      • Miranda says:

        If ‘be nice’ was the advice of his anger management class, it was a bad class. The rest sounds like standard teenage anger.

      I wonder if someone hacked his twitter acct. the same thing happened to me and even though I hadn’t done a thing to warrant it and even though it really took nothing on my part, I still had to jump through their hoops to “prove” I am lateblum. The only hang up I had was that I would not give a cell phone number. So it took a little while for me to “prove” myself.
