UnkaWillbur - May 26, 2017

Here' some links to nosh on, to start of your weekend. I hope everyone's weekend is great; me, myself, I'm planning on jumping out of a perfectly…

      Morning Unka. Everyone is still sleeping so I’ll go outside and scrape paint for a while.

      • Not sleeping, cooking I’ve been tagged to make the dessert, for the barbeque today.

      • Dosido3

        I just need more mocha.

        • Ahh, it’s what I’m doing myself. Morning D3 :^)

          • Dosido3

            Hi Steph!

        • I’m awake enough now to have some food and watch last night’s episode of “Ash vs. Evil Dead.”

      • Shoot I only wake up enough to get the links post put together, myself, on Sundays. 🙂

      • Annaleigh

        I’m embarrassed to say I only just woke up a little while ago (yay medications!). Have to go grocery shopping today, guess I’d better do it soon if I want to be home on time for tonight’s shitshow. 😛

    • Dosido3

      Morning Unka. I hear Guiliani is getting reamed by Chuck Todd on MTP. Pigs. flying.

    • Morning Unka & Ton :^)

  • I had to pull this posted comment from The Washington Post story about mobility and inequality that Unka linked. I bet five dollars this person didn’t read the article, or much of anything really.

    The liberal view of the world: “Only the top 1% leads happy lives, so 99% should be miserable but vote for liberal politicians who promise that everyone can be in the top 1%.”

    The conservative view of the world: “The top 1% didn’t live past age 40 until just a few centuries ago, they rarely lived to see their grandkids, never traveled more than 10 miles in their lifetime, and didn’t have even toilet paper.” Blessed be those who do not covet. Thank you capitalism!!!!! ~

    • They’re certainly not conveying the immediate and growing danger from climate change, that’s for sure. But, boy are they making hay out of the storm, in order to distract us from important political news.

      • Mainstream media is absolute tops when it comes to airplane crashes, weather events, and celebrity going ons.

        Distraction with the constant cycle of the inane is their specialty:/

        Well I’m off to the BBQ I’ll be back for the debate tonight :^)

    Uncle Sam goes after Deutsch Bank for it’s part in the 2008 financial crisis , wants to fine them billions of dollars , but rewards his own scum bags with a trillion dollar bail out . The rule of law is for others to abide by , not us .

    Here’s a new one I made, since some people who don’t know the meaning of the Gonzales Flag mistook the last one for an invitation:

    • I think the original, “Molon Labe” and not the pro-slavery-Texas “Gonzales” version, is more appropriate, in any case.

      • panem et circenses

        Yeah, this is a parody of the folks backing Trump, many of whom see themselves as lovers of freedom and worship these symbols.

        I like the Gadsen flag version of it, Don’t Grab My Pussy….

    Ha ha. I did the self-driving car test thing, very quickly, without much thought, and it turns out I am a horrible person. ^_^

    (I wiped out little kids, old people, fat people and women without a care in the world for any laws.)

    • SmotPoker

      I did it, and evidently I’m a monster equaled in history only by the likes of Hitler, Stalin, and Pol Pot….

    • SmotPoker

      To the surprise of absolutely nobody, it showed that I preferred saving the lives of animals over people.

      • Edwin

        I think I was a wee bit pro-pets too.

        • SmotPoker

          Mine was from one of the scale to the other, it was a wide margin, about as wide as you could get.

    • What sickened me was the incredibly high percentage of people who favor fit victims over out-of-shape ones. People are horrible.

      • Edwin

        The test was rigged… I tell ya.

  • SmotPoker
    • Edwin

      Happy birthday.

      • SmotPoker

        Thanks Edwin

          • SmotPoker

            You twisted fucks insist on trolling the deaf guy with music videos huh? Bastards….

          • Edwin

            bastards!!

          • Go read the lyrics, while you watch the images. 😛

          • SmotPoker

            Perfect old man rant.

            Between 17 wanting me to do math to know the date, and you wanted me to read lyrics to music video this site is becoming a lot like school….

          • ROFL!

            Don’t forget the history/archaeology… 😛

    • Happy Birthday Smotty ;^)

      • SmotPoker

        Thanks Stephanie. To be honest, I had forgotten all about it until my kid Skyped me earlier….

    • Blue Basilisk

      Happy birthday! 🙂

      • SmotPoker

        Thank you very much. It took a while to reach 1251, but I don’t feel a day over 1000

    Acting DNC Head Donna Brazile Urges Employees Not to Read Hacked Clinton Emails

    ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked Brazile about one of
    the most damaging revelations, that Clinton allegedly told a group of
    Brazilian
    bankers in a paid speech that her “dream” was to implement “open
    borders and open markets.” But Brazile responded by chastising the This
    Week host for even reading it. “George, when you see something postmarked
    from Russia, you should be afraid to open up the document,” she said.

    • Dosido3

      JESUS! Give it up, DNC.

      • Edwin

        She’s a dreadful person.

    • Edwin

      Are those the Kardashians? I only know of Kim because I always see her name. I know nothing about these people– happily. They are not covered in Korean media.

      • I’m assuming that’s them. I actually don’t know them by sight. But, I assume that such a collection of over-made up harlots would be that family.

      • Dosido3

        That’s them.

      • Lucky you… in America media and Hollywood decide what you like, and they decided we like the Kardashians :{

    • panem et circenses

      Carlin was pretty clear about the value of voting being an act of self-gratification and nothing more.

      • What’s him talking about the act of voting got to do with hearing him talk about the election in general? I for one would love to hear his devastatingly clever take downs of the oligarchs involved.

        • panem et circenses

          The individuals involved don’t much matter, when the reality never changes.

        • panem et circenses

          His views on voting and the system have everything to do with the election in general.

          • Veri1138

            How’d that thing go?

  • Dosido3

    I didn’t realize there is another debate tonight. Trump had event with victims of Bill. There’s going to be choice mud thrown tonight.

  • Edwin

    So what are we thinking this debate will be about tonight?

    • Dosido3

      Should we grab yer guns or your pu—
      I can’t …

      • Dosido3

        The clowns are scary!

      • Edwin

        While talking about p***ies

        • Veri1138

          Well, the talk of Kim Dong Trump’s small hands is a reference to his small penis.

          Gutter talk began by Clinton who went low early, with Sanders… Even before Trump.

    • Veri1138

      Rape bro vs rapist defender?

      • Edwin

        I guess Hillary is fine with the whole grab her p***y thing.

        • Veri1138

          Bimbo eruptions, her words.

    • notisaidthepig

      Nothing of any significance.

      • Veri1138

        It is popcorn night and not Baked Ham night. Because we care about you!

        • lol, nice seeing you Veri :^)

          • Veri1138

            Hey, hey… Thanks…

        • notisaidthepig

          Thank you!

            Anyone tries to bake you, let us know…

      Thanks, Stephanie.

        Hey, Not 🙂

          Oink!

          • Veri1138

            Kim Dong Trump v Hill-Kill-Shillary.

      • Hey Noti:^) You’re welcome.

        • notisaidthepig

          Is this the debate thread?

          • Veri1138

            /shrug

          • Well if not, it is now.

          • Veri1138

            Sorry 🙁

          • No need, you’re all relaxed here.. most of the time 😉

  • Veri1138

    Going to watch Trump-Clinton debate.

    A misogynist race baiting pig versus a Neo-con, Neo-liberal warmongering corporate shill.

    TrumpBro versus Bill’s rape defender. Where Trump is being sued over a rape allegation. Versus Hillary who viciously attacked Bill’s rape accusers and threatened to destroy them.

    It’s Sunday Night Reality TV Election…

    FIGHT NIGHT!

    • Dosido3

      They are both so despicable

      • Amen, I can’t figure out who the hell is voting for them… either one.

        • People who refuse to pay attention, but think they are informed enough to cast a useful vote.;

    • Veri1138

      HAHAHAHAHA… Corporate Sponsors on “independent Presidential commission”…

      What a crock of sh*t!

    • Veri1138

      Bill, accused rapist, looks really uncomfortable.

      • Dosido3

        Really? That’s a new look for him.

  • notisaidthepig

    I thought it was a debate. This isn’t a freaking debate!

  • Chunga

    Gonna listen to this shit show on the radio. Can’t stand to watch either of them.

    • notisaidthepig

      So smart!

    • Democracy Now will break in with responses from Jill Stein. It’s the only reason I’m watching the debate tonight.

      • notisaidthepig

        Same for me. Otherwise I wouldn’t watch it.

    • OculusVeritas

      I heard that’s the best way to “watch” the debate…..

  • And Clinton shoots out of the gate by not answering the question! There’s the theme for tonight’s shit-show!

  • Veri1138

    CNN bullsh*ting about seeing questions from their panel for first time.

    After this…

    https://mobile.twitter.com/SeanJKerrigan/status/783745678132600833

    • notisaidthepig

      That is INDEED total bullshit.

      • Dosido3

        Hunger Games level bullshit…hi Pig!

  • notisaidthepig

    Stein’s answer to this question is going to be awesome. Both of these are reprehensible people.

  • Veri1138

    And Andersen takes it to the gutter right away.

    Where is the question for Hillary about what she did to Bill’s rape accusers?

  • notisaidthepig

    Oh, I want to hear Trump’s answer to this question. I hope he throws it right back in her face about Bill and her enabling him and hurting women. Fingers crossed!

  • Of course, if Trump is not a complete tool of the Clinton campaign, here’s where he hit’s her with her “Public/Private” comments and calls her a liar.

  • Veri1138

    I don’t like Trump and won’t vote for him… But after the opening statement about being about issues…

    Clinton News Network is an ambush by starting off with rattling Trump’s cage while not mentioning her vile role in defending Bill against his rape accusers.

  • Left of Eden

    Debate’s 15 minutes old and not one substantive question yet.

    • While it’s certainly something we should have expected, it’s a sad, sad situation nonetheless.

      • Left of Eden

        Predictably and completely unsurprising.

    • Hi Left, good to see you :^)

      • Left of Eden

        Hey. Stephanie, good to see you too.

    • Veri1138

      This is bullsh*t.

    • Edwin

      Did you or did you not say p***y?????????????

      Answer the question!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Veri1138

    SLAMMED CLINTON!

    • notisaidthepig

      He went for the jugular!

  • Moderator: “Can we please not applaud for Trump.”

  • towerofbabel

    Made for TV.

  • Veri1138

    Clinton went low beginning with Sanders and his Judaism.

  • notisaidthepig

    Fuck. Trump is calling Clinton out for what she did to Obama!!!!

    • Wikileaks Trump just talked about Wikileaks.

    • Chunga

      … and Bernie. He’s throwing it all out.

      • notisaidthepig

        Finally!

  • Veri1138

    Smoked her with Bernie.

  • ROFL FUCKING MAO: He’ just called her “The Devil”

  • notisaidthepig

    This is what we all wanted!!! They are showing voters that they are both HORRIBLE DISGUSTING people.

  • Moderator: “The audience needs to stop booing Hillary’s lies, here.”

  • Veri1138

    She almost went ballistic and unhinged.

  • notisaidthepig

    “Because you’d be in jail.”

    • Edwin

      10 points for that– laughed out loud

  • WOW, Anderson just lost his audience, telling them they’re “wasting time”

  • Left of Eden

    Fuck SNL couldn’t parody this any better than the candidates themselves.

    • notisaidthepig

      Indeed.

    • Dosido3

      My hubs was ROFLHAO

  • notisaidthepig

    Oh, $hillary is “sorry about that.”

  • Left of Eden

    Hacked or not, it’s a violation of the law. Can’t argue that I tried to rob a bank and didn’t get any money so it’s not a crime.

  • Veri1138

    25 minutes and no substance.

  • Democracy Now, must still be having problems, because they haven’t broken away for a response with Jill Stein for quite a while now.

    • notisaidthepig

      Yeah. We can’t take the video away.

    • Veri1138

      They are letting them destroy themselves.

    • Severely missing Jill’s sanity. But at least Trump is going for Her Nibs’ throat.

      • Absolutely listening to Jill Stein brings sanity and dignity back to the process.

        • notisaidthepig

          Something’s wrong though. I’m listening on DN and nothing is happening with Jill.

          • Yeah they cut back to the debate and said they were having a hard time streaming??

            I was hoping they would get it worked out soon.

          • notisaidthepig

            Actually, I don’t want to be pulled away from this debate!

          • Yeah, Amy Goodman said something about “routing problems” whatever that means.

  • notisaidthepig

    Trump is killing it.

  • Cooper is getting Shrill, in trying to protect Clinton.

  • “I”m a genlteman” HAHAHAHAHAHA

    • notisaidthepig

      Trump is killing it.

    • towerofbabel

      You guys are way ahead of me on the stream.

      • notisaidthepig

        I’m listening on Democracy Now.

      • Hmm.. I thought a stream would take you to the present moment?

        • towerofbabel

          They must have put me on a delay because I’m too incisive in my comments.

          • lol… your comments are some of the best.

          • towerofbabel

            Thanks, I wish. I just enjoy this crowd.

  • towerofbabel

    I don’t think this is working out for Hillary so far.

    • notisaidthepig

      Trump has her on the ropes!

  • Left of Eden

    Hey, I’ve got an idea, how about HR676? Oh, the people funding your campaign are against it? Never mind.

    • notisaidthepig

      Pesky facts.

  • Veri1138

    Drumpf, Drumpf, Drumpf…

    She does not want single payer.

    • He has to say that, it’s part of the Kabuki performance.

  • notisaidthepig

    anderson has NO control at all

  • Left of Eden

    Anderson’s partisanship is glaringly pro Clinton. Geez, dude, keep it in your pants.

  • Are they deliberately accentuating every breath Trump makes? Because I hear Clinton wheezing too, but her’s don’t have the kind of “mic gain” texture to them and they’re much quieter.

    • notisaidthepig

      Interesting.

  • notisaidthepig

    $hillary’s answer is boring. God, she’s putting me to sleep.

    • It’s so pre-written. Clearly it’s a question her team had access to long before the debate.

  • Veri1138

    She has also helped bomb and murder a lot of Muslims.

    And she wants to cooperate with Saudi?

    LOL!

    • notisaidthepig

      Trump needs to say THIS.

  • notisaidthepig

    Trump called out the moderator. Love it!

  • Veri1138

    WTF!?

    He was answering.

    And he was muted?

    • notisaidthepig

      Really????

      • Veri1138

        Yep. It is going to look bad and help Trump.

        • notisaidthepig

          Unreal. The way they help her is truly shocking. And, yeah, it won’t help her AT ALL.

    • Clearly they’ve decided to play hardball with Trump. They’re going full “Flying Wedge” in their defense of Her Nibs…

      • Veri1138

        That is the kind of sh*t that feeds the conspiracy.

        • I mean, there’s little hidden or conspiratorial about the media’s assistance to Clinton, it’s just that people don’t pay attention to it, and the media themselves aren’t going to make people pay attention.

          • Veri1138

            Conspiracy. As opposed to conspiracy theory. I did not make that clear.

  • Left of Eden

    Invoking Russia as the source of ME violence? You have to be kidding me. Yeah, nothing wrong with our pacific ME policies at all. Good grief.

  • notisaidthepig

    shout out to bernie supporters!

  • notisaidthepig

    Oh, look. $hillary is lying.

  • notisaidthepig

    Russia!!!!

    • towerofbabel

      Stop ’em at the border before they leak.

  • Honest Abe. SMACK!

  • notisaidthepig

    Unreal how Trump is speaking the truth. What a crazy world we live in!

  • Veri1138

    She dodged the question.

    • notisaidthepig

      Yes, she did. EVERYONE noticed.

  • Shaykayvah

    As much as I abhor Clinton, I equally abhor the cunt of a man Drunph. Nobody wins in this shit show.

    • It’s nice to see Clinton called out on her lies and bullshit, on national television, though.

      • Shaykayvah

        It will mostly fall on deaf ears.

      • notisaidthepig

        yep.

      • Dosido3

        Did Trump ever get specific or just call her a liar? He talks in Google search keywords.

        • Veri1138

          By now, I scrubbed my brain. With drano and a jackhammer.

          • Dosido3

            Lol, ok. Delete your account! 🙂 I couldn’t watch with y’all because of household chaos here.

          • Veri1138

            Just my brain. I will have a replacement by the morning.

          • Dosido3

            Ah. We’ll have a good night. I’m out. Hope we both recover!

          • Veri1138

            Roger that. I am out.

          • Veri1138

            And have a good night.

    • Left of Eden

      Four years of Trump = a truly progressive Democratic ticket in 2020
      Four years of Clinton = a Cruz presidency in 2020

      Democrats haven’t occupied the WH four consecutive terms since Roosevelt.

      • Shaykayvah

        Frankly, it doesn’t matter, the Oligarchy will win, the election’s a sham.

    • Exactly.

  • Veri1138

    She never proposed tax reform and voted when she knew the legislation would never passed, in order to appear Progressive.

  • towerofbabel

    Hillary is in a straightjacket of her own making and Trump is taking advantage of it.

  • “With her, it’s all talk and no action.” BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE.

  • notisaidthepig

    9/11!

    • Veri1138

      Yep, Guliani and…

      Hillary.

  • Veri1138

    DAMN!Again she never proposed anything except 3 bills, regarding naming a post office and such.

  • towerofbabel

    Ouch. “The people that support her want these tax deductions too.” This is not working Anderson.

  • Left of Eden

    Who wants to bet that the link between global warming and Syria won’t be addressed?

    • notisaidthepig

      not gonna happen

      No shit. She DEFINITELY isn’t going out for the progressive vote. As Jimmy Dore says, “If she wants my vote, she can come and get my vote. If she doesn’t come and get it, she won’t get it.”

    • Dosido3

      If Trump could string a coherent sentence together, he might have nailed her harder on this.

  • Veri1138

    WWIII proposal coming up.

    Syrian rebels = terrorists.

  • towerofbabel

    Heart breaking boy with blood on his face–here we go with the war propaganda. I despise CNN.

  • Left of Eden

    The moderators are clearly antagonistic to Trump.

  • Veri1138

    Clinton smoked on Syria. Don’t agree with him on Iran.

  • towerofbabel

    These two people are sick. Why this? It’s a farce.

    • Nevin

      And the majority of people will be voting for one of these sick idiots.

      • notisaidthepig

        Nevin! <3

        • Nevin

          Noti. 😉

      • Shaykayvah

        i think I’m going to go to the bar on election day and do shots. after I get baked.

        • Nevin

          Call a cab if you do.

          • Shaykayvah

            I can walk home.

          • Nevin

            Walking home drunk may not be a smart move. Just stay home and drink. Call a friend so you are not drinking alone.

          • Shaykayvah

            Two blocks, and I never over do it. Excess in moderation.

  • Now the moderators are debating Trump for Clinton? Holy fuck, so pitiful.

  • Shaykayvah

    Arm the fucking world!

    • Left of Eden

      Absolutely fucking sickening, but not surprising. Arm Saudi Arabia? Sure, why not propose it. Most Americans probably still believe Iraq attacked us on 9/11.

  • Veri1138

    What happens if we impose a no-fly zone…

    War with Russia.

    • Nevin

      Trump missed an opportunity there.

      • Veri1138

        Yep.

    • Dosido3

      What is the difference between ground troops and special forces?

      • Veri1138

        Iraq Invasion vs Bin Laden raid

      • Edwin

        different hats

  • towerofbabel

    War! CNN wants war! Gee, I wonder why?

  • towerofbabel

    There would be no war in Syria if we weren’t trying to topple Assad.

  • Oh, Jesus Christ on a Bike: Supreme Court? DNC talking points as questions?

    • notisaidthepig

      of course!

  • Left of Eden

    Appoint SC justices that know how the world works is code for judges that are not progressive – not dreamers like Bernie bros.

  • notisaidthepig

    each “debate” is worse than the previous one. i’ve become dumber i’m sure by watching them. fuck.

    • We all suffer.

    • Nevin

      Trump talks in circles and it is obvious he doesn’t know what he is talking about. Clinton is a typical politician. Covers all bases and if questioned she can claim her comment was taken out of context.

  • We have a new poll, on the right-hand sidebar.

    • Good Lord, and it’s only 7:30, here..

      • It’s 10:42 here.

      • Edwin

        Almost noon here.

        Did the dishes, swept, did laundry, packed away some summer clothes til next year, and a bunch of other stuff while listening to the debate. ^_^

        PS I like the dog and birds pic for this thread.

  • Shaykayvah

    Eh, I’m out.

  • towerofbabel

    I’m going to go shoot myself in the head. See you all tomorrow!

    • :/ Night Tob

    • Edwin

      Good night.

    • g’night ToB, but put down the gun! We like having you around! 😀

  • Democracy now it’s still having a round table, with responses from Jill Stein.

    • notisaidthepig

      Absolutely love DN. I wish someone would give them an endowment so they could go on forever.

      • It’s a sad day in America when we have to purchase sound journalism, and presidential candidates. It shouldn’t work this way.

        I gotta get up for work tomorrow everybody have a wonderful night :^)

        • notisaidthepig

          Sweet dreams, Stephanie. Have a lovely Monday.

        • g’night Steph. I get tomorrow off. Sort of.

          • Thanks Unka, hope your semi-off day is relaxing :^)

        • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

          Good night, hope you have a good day.

          • <3 Toad! Hope you are having a good day :^)

  • Veri1138

    Kim Dong Trump completely screwed up on the energy.

    What a dumbass

    • Annaleigh

      Loved his constant sniveling about the moderators picking on him. He’s a 10 year old in a 70 year old package.

      • They were acting as Clinton surrogates, all night. Right down to Radditz actually debating Trump, herself, on one question!

        • Edwin

          The mods were horrible.

        • Annaleigh

          True, but Trump is constantly going “But Billy did it too!” or some other variation. Getting tired of it. It was classic when he tweeted to whine about a Frozen coloring book/sticker book and the fact it had a star on it (and why didn’t people complain about that and not the Star of David he got caught tweeting) and people started tweeting “Let it go, let it go…” at him.

    • Dosido3

      Hubs and I both yelled at the TV…WTF is he talking about?!

      • Veri1138

        Completely unreal view of energy he has.

        • Dosido3

          Weird. But I think he won WV with that gibberish.

  • Veri1138

    Well, that was the WWE of Presidential Debates from Reality TV.

    SUNDAY NIGHT FIGHT NIGHT.

    Edge to Clinton for delivery.
    Edge to Trump for going for the jugular in big ways.
    Edge to CNN for being there for Hillary.

    • We don’t call it “Kayfabe” for nothing..

  • “We need a second, independent party.” – Jill Stein

    I have a serious intellectual crush on this woman.

    • Nevin

      Intelligence can definitely be a turn-on.

  • Blue Basilisk

    There isn’t enough alcohol in the world for me to watch another one of these “debates.”

    • Nevin

      You are spared as there is only one left.

  • Nevin

    What was unfortunate for all of us is that neither candidate acted presidential tonight.

    • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

      Have they ever?

      • Nevin

        No, but…they have made a mockery of the office of president.

        • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

          Yep 🙁

    • I’m not sure that was ever in the cards, to be honest. I don’t think either of them can act presidential. I don’t think they have it in them. 🙁

      • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

        One’s a corrupt entitled elitist bitch, the other a stupid carnival barker.

  • Annaleigh
  • Dosido3

    I would have voted for Ken Bone if he was in the debate poll…

    Discrimination and sexism, racism, etc is fucking real and this reminds me of what I have lived with since I started working.

    Google and a plethora of developers have been fighting the “no to tofu” when a browser can’t display a font code, it gives you a white block. They will add new languages as they are added to the unicode. I just downloaded it. It’s free. Open source.
