Eclipse 2017

For about 90 minutes yesterday...Across these Divided United States.. We weren't democrats or Republicans, Black ,Latino,Asian, American Indian or White....We weren't Arab or Christian...or White Supremacists and Anti Fa...We weren't Alt Right or Alt Left...We were just human beings, just people in awe of something we could neither control or understand....

The Eclipse!

Everybody was watching it...

Oh there of course were the usual kill joys who were underwhelmed or said they were underwhelmed...But I'll bet that even they watched...

People had their special glasses and their smartphones and were looking and snapping "Sun Selfies" or should I say "Moon Selfies..."

Personally I thought it was the coolest thing I've ever seen...I hadn't planned on watching...but a lady allowed me to use her glasses and observe...I was in awe....

At that moment, I felt very small in the larger scheme of things...I think we were all reminded of how very small we are in the larger scheme of things...

It was nice that for 90 minutes..We put political differences and what happened on Game Of Thrones, Power and Insecure on the back burner....

for something really larger than life!

What I Worry About

Courtesy of Jackie Hinnant Bass-

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook, yesterday and I don't know about you, but this is basically what's been on my mind.
"You know what worries me? It's not that a group of racist idiots lit some tiki torches and decided to have a rally.

I worry that on Monday they went back to their job in human resources and decided who gets hired and who gets fired. They put their uniform back on and 'serve and protect.

They sit on a jury and decide the fate of a young person of color. They teach in a kindergarten class. 

They sit across from a couple, who came to this country, worked hard and saved, and have the power to approve or deny them a loan to purchase their first home. 

They decide an insurance claim. They give an estimate to repair the brakes on a mother's only mode of transportation to get to work each day.

I don't stay up lamenting the fact that racists feel emboldened to parade in the street.

I stay up because racists have, do, and will apply their racist beliefs in their daily lives and, by extension mine, and they don't do it carrying a banner to distinguish themselves.
It isn't the theatrical that worries me. It's the practical."

 
*SIGH*

Think about that...let that marinate!

Random Thoughts


1.  We don't have to live in a world of hatred and intolerance.

2. We can start now by teaching our small children acceptance for people who may be different than them.

3. We should teach our children and our teenagers tolerance for people of all races, religions and preferences...

4. In the End, We are all just people....

5.  I think we should all make a conscious effort to befriend someone of a different race or religion.

6. Imagine a world where there are no Alt-Right or Hate Groups.


Just My Two cents....Have a great weekend everybody!

The phone call
Several men are in the locker room of a private club after exercising. Suddenly a cell phone on one of the benches rings. A man picks it up and the following conversation ensues:
"Hello?"

"Honey, It's me."

"Sugar!"

"Are you at the club?"

"Yes."

"Great! I'm at the mall 2 blocks from where you are. I saw a beautiful mink coat. It is absolutely gorgeous! Can I buy it?"

"What's the price?"

"Only $1,500."

"Well, okay, go ahead and get it, if you like it that much."

"Ahhh, and I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the 2002 models. I saw one I really liked. I spoke with the salesman and he gave me a really good price ... and since we need to exchange the BMW that we bought last year..."

"What price did he quote you?"

"Only $60,000!"

"Okay, but for that price I want it with all the options."

"Great! Before we hang up, something else..."

"What?"

"It might seem like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank account and...well, I stopped by to see the real estate agent this morning and I saw the house we had looked at last year. It's on sale! Remember? The one with a pool, English garden, acre of park area, beachfront property..."

"How much are they asking?"

"Only $650,000... a magnificent price, and I see that we have that much in the bank to cover..."

"Well, then go ahead and buy it, but just bid $620,000, OK?"

"Okay, sweetie. Thanks! I'll see you later!! I love you!!!" "Bye."

The man hangs up, closes the phone's flap and asks aloud, "Does anyone know whose phone this is?"


Everybody have a great weekend!

Trumps denunciation of White Nationalists and other Alt Right Racists was too little and too late and appeared to be forced because the White House was taking universal condemnation for his first statement!

This is the story of how earrings became so popular for men:

John looked over at his coworker Tom. He noticed that he had an earring on one of his ears.

Tom was usually a pretty conservative guy so John is curious.

He approached Tom and asked him, "If you don't mind me asking, what's with the earring?"

Tom replied, "Don't worry about it, it's just an earring."

John let it go for a few minutes but then his curiosity peaked again, "So how long have you been wearing and earring?"

Tom replied, "Ever since my wife found it in our bed."

A truck driver was driving between towns on a country road when he spotted a gorgeous woman hitchhiking.

 He stopped without hesitation and she climbed into the cab showing mountains of cleavage.

Two miles further down the road, he got a flat, pulled to the side of the road and got out to inspect the tire.

He was fiddling around with the wheel, when the woman opened the window and shouted down, "Do you want a screwdriver?"

The driver replied, all smiles, "Might as well. I can't get this damn hub cap off."

SATURDAY 7-(Seven conversations that make married people cringe)



1."How's married life?" The same. It is the exact same. But now there's joint checking. 

2."When are you guys having kids?" Insert major eye roll here, please. Not only should you not ask this, but you definitely shouldn't ask it at, oh, the rehearsal dinner. Or the wedding. Or even six months after the wedding. How about you let me enjoy the fact that I think I found my girl and not worry about introducing the world to the next generation of whatever her name is.

3."Why are you two waiting so long to have kids?" For all you know, we're not interested in having children. Or maybe we're looking into adoption, which can be a long, drawn-out process. Or maybe we are trying, and you're rubbing my face in the fact that we're having difficulties. Thanks.How bout,it's none of your business.

4. "We should be expecting the next one soon, right?" We decided to have a child, and you're already curious about the next one. Can my girl (and her uterus) catch a break?Damn...You go and have some kids.....

5."Your kids are so close in age! Was one a surprise?" I know it's been awhile since I took sex ed, but last time I checked you could get pregnant any time you had sex. Since I was aware that me and my wife had sex, no,

6. "What meal does your wife love to cook for you?" Sadly for me, that whole "as soon as a ring goes on her left finger she was bestowed with magical cooking powers" idea was a farce. (I'm still pretty pissed about it, too.) So just like before we got hitched, I does the cooking. (I'm lying, she does alright...)Or we order out. Satisfied??

7."When did you last see your single friends?" Well, as soon as I got married I categorized them into single, married, and divorced. So let me check my calendar and see....oh, wait,Nobody does that!


Enjoy Your Weekend!

A young secretary, gets twelve muli-colored roses delivered to her desk. Noticing this, another older female co-worker says " Aren’t those beautiful ! Your boyfriend is SO sweet to send those to you."

The younger gal groans her reply "Yeah, but you know what this means?" "It means I’ll be spending the next 3 DAYS on my back, with my ankles in the air."


Puzzled by her comment, her co-worker pats her on the back & answers " It’ll be ok dearie......all you have to do is purchase a vase ?"

Never Will Get Over It! (Him)

#Not My President

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Has Trump Kept his Promises? (Let's Look at the facts)

A number of die hard Trump supporters claim he has kept his campaign promises to them...HAS HE?  Well let's look at some facts...I know...a foreign word to some of them...Most of them...

Fact-He told you he’d repeal Obamacare and replace it with something “beautiful.” You bought it. But he didn’t repeal and he didn’t replace. (Just as well: His plan would have knocked at least 22 million off health insurance, including many of you bozos.)

Fact- He told you he’d cut your taxes. You bought it. But tax “reform” is stalled. And if it ever moves, the only ones whose taxes will be cut are the wealthy.

Fact- He told you he’d invest $1 billion in our nation’ crumbling infrastructure. You bought it. But his infrastructure plan, which was really a giveaway to rich investors, is also stalled.

Okay, here is another fact- He said he’d clean the Washington swamp. You bought it. But he’s brought into his administration more billionaires, CEOs, and Wall Street moguls than in any administration in history, to make laws that will enrich their businesses, along with former lobbyists, lawyers and consultants who are crafting new policies for the same industries they recently worked for.He called Hillary Clinton the candidate of Goldman -Sachs...He has hired so many former Goldman-Sachs people that the only people from that company that didn't get a job in the Trump administration was Mr. Goldman and Mr. Sachs.

Fact- He said he’d use his business experience to whip the White House into shape. You bought it. But he created the most chaotic, dysfunctional, back-stabbing White House in modern history, in which no one is in charge and no one trusts anyone!

Fact-He said he’d close “special interest loopholes that have been so good for Wall Street investors but unfair to American workers.“ You bought it. But he picked a Wall Street financier Stephen Schwarzman to run his strategic and policy forum, who compares closing those loopholes to Hitler’s invasion of Poland.

Not enough?  Here is another fact- He told you he’d “bring down drug prices” by making deals with drug companies. You bought it. But now the White House says that promise is “inoperative.”

Fact- He said that on Day One he’d label China a “currency manipulator.” You bought it. But then he met with China’s president and declared “China is not a currency manipulator.

Oh and check this out- He said he wouldn’t bomb Syria. You bought it. But then he bombed Syria.

And this is the kicker- He called Barack Obama “the vacationer-in-Chief” and accused him of playing more rounds of golf than Tiger Woods. He promised to never be the kind of president who took cushy vacations on the taxpayer’s dime, not when there was so much important work to be done. You bought it. But in his first 6 months he has spent more taxpayer money on vacations than Obama did in the first 3 years of his presidency. Not to mention all the money taxpayers are spending protecting his family, including his two sons who travel all over the world on Trump business.

If you still haven't heard enough then check out these facts...He said he’d force companies to keep jobs in America. You believed him. But despite their promises, Carrier, Ford, GM, and the rest are shipping jobs to Mexico and China...Oh and He said he’d create coal jobs. You believe him. He hasn’t. But here’s what he has done: Since 1965 a federal program called the Appalachian Regional Commission has spent $23 billion helping communities in coal states fund job retraining, reclaim land, and provide desperately needed social services. A.R.C. helped cut poverty rates almost in half, double the percentage of high-school graduates, and reduce infant mortality by two-thirds. Trump’s first proposed budget eliminates A.R.C.

So now...I know a lot of you all probably didn't understand all of that....but it's not fake news...It's all true...Some of it hits you where you live...Did you notice I didn't mention anything about Russia?  No I talked about the promises he made to you.....

Still think this man can make America great?

A man named Bill woke up on his birthday. His wife and kids didn't even say good morning to him. So, he left for work in a huff. His receptionist, Joanna, said happy birthday. "Thanks, Joanna. That's the nicest thing anyone's said to me all day." Bill replied, pleased. So he worked until his lunch break, when Joanna asked if he fancied a lunch. Instead of taking their usual lunch just outside, they went to a big beautiful bistro. 

"My apartment is just around the corner. Would you like to visit?" Joanna asked. "Sure, why not?" Bill replied.

At her apartment, Bill sat down on the couch. Joanna said she'd be right back and stepped into the bedroom. Minutes later, she came back out followed by Bills family, friends, and co-workers.  

Bill just sat there... naked.

Two Shootings In Minneapolis

This is Philandro Castille...He was stopped and shot to death by a police officer ,despite the fact that he complied when asked if he was carrying a firearm.. A firearm that was legally registered to him in the State of Minnesota, an open carry state..

He had no criminal record....He had a job as a cook at a local school and his students and co-workers loved him...

The newspapers played up the fact that he and his girlfriend had been smoking pot in the car at sometime before they were stopped..

The Officers name and a photo of him wasn't supplied or made known until days after the shooting..

The Officer was acquitted of any wrong doing and allowed to resign from his job.

This is Justine Damond...She's White and from Austrailia...She was shot and killed by a police officer recently...She too was unarmed and it appeared she was shot for no good reason...Just like Phillandro Castille up top...

Two shootings in Minneapolis both handled very differently.

In her case...The officer's (who is African -American and apparently a Muslim)  name is immediately released.
A Press conference quickly held calling for answers. Description of victim is one which invokes sympathy.

 Photos of the cop and his personnel file are made available to the media.

There is an outcry for justice - even from conservative media outlets. Motives of the 'Muslim officer' is called into question.

For a round trip trip to the tropical island of Obviously pick the victim...

Two midgets go into a bar, where they pick up two prostitutes and take them to their separate hotel rooms. The first midget, however, is unable to get an erection. His depression is enhanced by the fact that, from the next room, he hears cries of, "ONE, TWO, THREE...UUH!" all night long.

In the morning, the second midget asks the first, "How did it go?" The first whispered back, "It was so embarrassing. I simply couldn't get a hard-on."

The second midget shook his head. "You think that's embarrassing?" he asked. "I couldn't even get on the damn bed"
