D. & S.M. Up-Date

35 days post-inauguration & nothing has actually blowed up real good yet, just more of the blah blah blah we've been hearing from aged (both the literally old & in the way, & prematurely wretched freshly-scrubbed young conservatives in their suits & bow-ties) mental cases since Reagan ruled the earth (in his demented mind).

I hope that when I wake up I'll find that Trump (scheduled to be on stage at C.P.A.C. at the time this item is posted) said something so stupid or repugnant (Is it too much to hope for an opening joke like "In five minutes we start draining the swamp that is the enemy of the people, the Washington Post newsroom, & believe me, folks, this will be a military operation, bigly!"?) that the 25th Amendment will be in play.I suppose this puts Scientology firmly in the Trump camp.

"Tomorrow Belongs To Me ..."

Or, "ideas whose time has come ..."Yes, Tomorrow was indeed yours, right through April of '45. We've already had this conversation. And a similar one that (sort of) ended in 1865.

Does Mr. Spencer strike you as a bit light in the loafers, as they used to say? Or is it just that to our jaundiced ears all the kids today speak like sissies?

Oh my, this has turned into one of those FoxNews "we report, you decide" situations:
This may help decisions.
From Esquire, totally on it.

Johnny Winter's birthday (1944) today; we apparently didn't know (certainly didn't acknowledge) he is no more, having slipped the surly bonds of earth from a hotel room in Zurich, 16 July 2014.

Rolling Stone reminded us that Mr. Winter was "afflicted with albinism and 20/400 eyesight in one eye and 20/600 in the other".

Added morbidity: On this date in 1821, John Keats died in Rome.

Awards Season Re-Cap & Brush-Off

You bet your ass I've better things on which to waste what little money, energy & interest I have & what little time remains to me on attendance & consumption at the mainstream cinema, so I've no idea what's been playing since, oh ... 1987, maybe. As far as this yr.'s load of nominations, Oscar®™© Night has always seemed like a good time for spring cleaning.

Also: Who gives a fucking shit? (Not Americans.)

Rock my Boat Dub (Special Melodica Version)

"Our love is like a ship on the ocean We've been sailing with a cargo
full of love and devotion"

Today in "English, motherfucker, do you speak it?":
“We’re not bragging, we brought the president where he is,” Jones said. “That doesn’t mean he didn’t have the will like a ship to be on the ocean but we were on the ocean that Trump was on. He knows that.”
I'll bet Trump understands it too; only a really good mind, the best mind, could follow it.

Actual Wed. weasel-dicked mo-fo, who is so not projecting his self-hatred he's N.S.F.W. (And proably not safe for his cardio-vascular system either. Don't hurt yourself, obese obscenity.):Even this reporter, a big league loser indeed, has more self-respect & self-control than to turn on the Web of Evil web-cam & record anything that inaneperiod. (Let alone make it available to others. Like Alex, I'm not perfect; laziness may enter into my reticence as well.)
But Jones, as usual, reserved his greatest wrath for the “globalists” who he says are determined to destroy humanity: “All across the world, humanity knows you’re the enemy. We’re going to get you assholes, just know that. It doesn’t mean we’re perfect but we’re not out to screw women and children and hurt people. You understand that, assholes? You hate humanity because you project your own hatred of yourself on us, assholes. You want to kill us, how about you die? Kill your fucking selves you fucking globalists!”

Last May, Jones told conservative columnist George Will to “put a .357 Magnum to your head and blow what little is left of your brains out all over yourself” for daring to criticize Trump.
Sauce, goose, gander, Jones. Surely you're always armed. G'wan, ya chicken?

Worst State In The Nation?

Today it's Iowa, the Hawkeye State, one of whose elected representatives would like to dumb Iowans even further down.
Pat Rynard / Iowa Starting Line:
Senator Mark Chelgren Aims To Purge Democrats From Iowa Universities  —  The party affiliation on your voter registration card could block you from employment at Iowa's state universities were a newly proposed bill by Senator Mark Chelgren to become law.  Senate File 288, proposed …
Next, a proposal to ban "liberal" Jooos from academe? And we can't have no Catholics teaching our Protestant evangelical children now, can we? No women perfessin' neither, they should be at home cleanin' up after the children.

The mental & moral rot is not limited to state senators. Iowa's two Republican U.S. Senators were both busily ignoring or fleeing their constituents earlier today.

May I remind you that the two drooling idiots Iowans elected to the Senate have the same power in the Senate as Califonia's two Senators, who represent 10 times as many humanoids, many of them elitists who can read, write &
do simple arithmetic w/o using their fingers.

Oh My!

Found some seriously fake news.

As the world braces itself for the high profile arrests to begin of senior politicians in relation to the “Pizzagate” Washington D.C. pedophile ring scandal, CNN seems to be preparing their own spin on the shocking (fake) news story.

The mainstream media outlet, who have been desperately trying to cover up Pedogate since it first broke last year by branding it as “fake news”, are now preparing to suggest that the upcoming arrests are all part of some elaborate coup by President Trump’s administration to “drain the swamp” of some of his less desirable opponents.
The American cable and satellite TV channel even went as far as to suggest that the arrests will be a “shock event” also used as a diversionary tactic to distract the public from “those Trump tax returns, or even his ties to Russia”.

CNN, along with other news agencies and high-level politicians, have desperately been trying to convince the public that the Washington pedophilia ring was nothing more that a wild conspiracy theory, but as the Pizzagate arrests now seem imminent, the conspirers begin scrambling to create another cover story.
Note that the "imminent" link goes to, which would appear to be where typist "Jay Greenberg" first published this lump of codswallop, in the grand "One lies, the other swears to it" tradition of the Echo Chamber of Idiocy & Paranoid Buffoonery.
The news broke last week of the imminent arrests following the leak from an FBI insider last week, confirming that 30 politicians and 40 other individuals are to be arrested in Washington D.C., Virginia, and New York City in connection with the Pizzagate pedophile ring.

According to the leak, the FBI has now submitted the arrest warrants to the Department Of Justice and awaits the signature of the newly appointed Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, and soon as he is sworn in this Thursday morning.

Mr. Sessions was briefed on the investigation and all of the evidence over three weeks ago.
Published ten days ago: What's Sessions waiting for?

As a final fillip, get an idea of the mental miasma emanating from the fake news fever swamps.
