Green Party to Democrats in 2016: Hey guys we are willing to pay for a multi-million dollar recount for HRC.

Democrats to the Green Party in 2020: Thanks, but cram it will walnuts, you are off the ballot.

Never forget this one truth: when the democrats talk about about voting rights (and they love to talk about voting), what they mean is that they support every citizen's right to vote for democrats.

That's Fredo, having escaped Al Neri's bungled attempt.

I see swimmers in open water without a buddy, without floatation, and no lifeguard.

That's gotta be a suicide wish.

A submarine!

And that's not just American citizens. Every citizen!

Your daily reminder that Kamala Harris visited a man who raped a woman and told him she is proud of him.

"That's gotta be a suicide wish."

He had 2 friends on the shore and they were watching him.

I would be afraid of motorboats.

Big Mike said...

@rehajm, ha! That's nothing. Here in Virginia the leading Democrat candidate for governor is Justin Fairfax, who has been credibly accused by two different women of raping them.

But what's a little rape among Democrats.

Big Mike said...

I just hope the swimmer was wearing a wet suit because I'll bet that water is damned cold.

Was his name David?

It's one thing to use a teleprompter to give a speech. It's just an automated way to read a prepared text, and reading form a prepared text is a common and accepted practice. But if Joe Biden is using a teleprompter during interviews, then either the "interview" is scripted, or someone else is answering the questions in realtime, and Joe is reading those answers.

Now, assuming Joe is elected President of the United States of America, is there any reason, any reason at all, to suppose he will stop using a teleprompter to answer questions? Am I the only one who wonders who is on the other end of Joe's teleprompter?

The pink sunrise in the second one is stunning.

Why is everyone convinced that water is cold? It's mid-September, and Madison is at 43 degrees North latitude, one degree South of Eugene, Oregon. And the water is plenty warm here.

Nessie?

Btw, don't want to wait until tonight or wait for AA to post a story as this is very topical...

Out of curiosity I went to CNNs website during the Middle East peace signing ceremonies.

There is NO news story anywhere on the front page.

When I searched for ‘Israel,’ two stories came up numbers 5 and 6 down the list.

These people are un-American. Their broadcast license should be pulled.

Lake Mendota water is near its warmest at this time of year.

Mike said...

Nice day. No smoke, just clouds and unlimited visibility. The Air Quality Index for Madison is 31 (Good). The AQI for Bellevue, WA is 269 (Very Unhealthy). Portland's AQI is 408 (Hazardous).

Good Grief. He's not swimming to Hawaii, he's in a lake 100 yards from shore. Are people so sheltered, they never swam unless there was a lifeguard? Sads.

rcocean said...

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that swims with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in Madison now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That swam with us without a life guard..

rcocean said...

Btw, the Columbia university marching band has disbanded (good word choice!) since it was founded on "racism and oppression". Well, that's the excuse anyway. Its much more likely that the millionaires and foreigners who go to Columbia think that Football and marching bands are too 'murican for them. Hopefully, they will be disbanding football and all sports except women's soccer and men's figure skating.

"And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks"

Which manhoods, by the way, they probably measure in centimeters.

This picture could double as a sunset as well.

It's not unlikely that the atmospheric effects are influenced by high altitude smoke drifting east from California/Oregon.
