Your Weekend of Weekends.

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…

  • Your Song of the Day

  • EdgarHF

    I’ve read the Current Affairs article twice now and still can not figure what message the guy is trying to get across. It does seem like he is still equating the left with the Democrats. He does seem to be thinking the fracture is not a complete split.

  • Colbert mocks Maddow, hard.

    https://youtu.be/q_rTWxJepO8

    • EdgarHF

      Maddox used to be boring at least now she is funny.

      • Well, funny in a totally schadenfreude way…

      • kreskin

        Her whole show could be done in five minutes. The way she repeats everything , over and over and over again … annoying is an understatement . So full of herself .

    • towerofbabel

      I saw that earlier. It’s brilliant.

      • kreskin

        I agree , he nailed it .

    • IronPyrite_Reborn

      She’ll still get her $30,000/day and the sick, mysterious adoration of people convinced she’s some sort of “progressive” icon.

  • The Russia Nonsense Is Dead. Can We PLEASE Start Focusing On Real Issues Now? How stupid do you have to be to lose a political chess match to Donald Trump? There was an exciting world of possibilities after November 8th, where the people could finally wrest control of their government from the claws of the plutocrats, and the reality TV star has you chasing shadows and tripping over your own feet instead. We’ve wasted too much time already, and it’s time for you to admit you were wrong and let the real progressives get to work turning this thing around.”

    • EdgarHF

      This season’s Punch And Judy Show is all about Russia. Well, at least Judy’s plot line is about Russia. Punch’s plot line is about immigrants.

    • kreskin

      Excellent . Johnstone nailed it .

  • towerofbabel

    Most humans probably think it’s absurd to consider animals persons. That proves that humans are sub-animal.

    • Yep. My entire experience with animals is that most of them are certainly sentient and smart enough for me to consider them persons. And often better persons than most humans!

      • FaunaAndFlora

        I have to disagree. Ask yourself if you would be able to spay or neuter a person? How about eating a person? In regards to chimps, would we be able to restrict their movement if they were given legal personhood or would we have to allow them to roam freely? No more chimp preserves? Tear down the fences even if doing so would endanger them? And how do we hold them accountable for their behavior? As it stands right now, I’m the one who is held accountable for anything my animals may do to harm people and property because it is up to me to keep them on my property and to control them when I take them off my property.

        Also, most people misuse the word “sentient”. To be sentient means you have the ability to feel and sense changes in your environment, and to react to those changes. It has nothing to do with the ability to think or perceive… with sapience. Biologists are now coming around to the very real possibility that plants and even bacteria are sentient lifeforms.

        Just my two cents. 🙂

    My last full day in Thailand, I leave my hotel for the airport 7:30am Bangkok time. I promised my brother I would return as soon as possible.

    • notisaidthepig

      Safe travels back, Edgar.

      • EdgarHF

        Still 1100am Saturday here so almost a full day left.

      • kreskin

        Ditto .

    • kreskin

      Time went too fast I’ll bet . Bummer that you got sick while there .

      Hey , did you hear the news ? It’s front page , Russian investors have invested in Trump properties … like wealthy people from all over the world have ! ( shakes his head )

      • EdgarHF

        More than trade, healthcare, the economy, education, social security, and the environment I want to hear Russia, Russia, Russia!

    • I’m glad it went well. One should not ever have to lose one’s loved ones.

  • Good news!

    Supreme Court affirms Arizona’s higher minimum wage About 700,000 of the state’s more than 2.5 million workers are expected to benefit when the wage increase is fully implemented in 2020.

    The measure approved by state voters in November and upheld Tuesday by the high court, Proposition 206, also mandates for the first time that employers provide at least three days of paid leave for workers every year. Supporters of the measure, which took effect Jan. 1, said more than 900,000 Arizonans worked in jobs where there was no paid leave.

    • FaunaAndFlora

      That is good news.

    20 minutes into the first leg of my flight home😥

    • Bon Voyage!

      • EdgarHF

        In Taipei airport waiting for my flight back to Chicago. What a bummer.

        • notisaidthepig

          I hate that airport. I was always there in the wee hours and there’s nothing to distract you while you wait. Boooooring. (((hugs)))

          • EdgarHF

            Luckily it was not that long a layover. Now it’s another 12 hours sitting in an economy class seat. At least I have wifi.

          • notisaidthepig

            Crossing the Pacific takes sooooo long. I have felt your pain many, many times. Wifi should help!

  • EdgarHF

    While in Thailand the only American news outlet was Fox News. So I only got Punch’s and not Judy’s side of things.

    • Well, their content and narrative is the same, agreed upon one, as CNN and MSNBC, just the focus/rhetoric is different! So, I’d argue that you didn’t miss much., LOL.

      • kreskin

        Hate to say it but I think Fox is the better of the three at this point .

        • EdgarHF

          After being forced to bear Fox every hotel breakfast I’d have agree with Unka. They’re bullshit is just different and it is pure bullshit. Plus, they are pretty sickening with the anti-immigrant and race baiting stuff. They do Tend to avoid the Neo-McCarthyism.

  • EdgarHF

    Just read Chuck Berry died. To tell the truth I did not know he was up until now still alive.

    • kreskin

      I didn’t either .

    • kreskin

      90 years old .

    • FaunaAndFlora

      He was working on a new album. Not sure if he got it finished before his death.

    • Shohanna

      You aren’t alone, I thought he died in the airplane crash that took the other Legends. So I was quite surprised to see he died.

  • kreskin

    Media Groupthink? There’s no thinking involved .

    • Shohanna

      RIght?!

  • Shohanna

    Afternoon Gang! How is everyone today?

    • EdgarHF

      Hello Shohanna.

      • Shohanna

        How you been Ed? <3 Me I am good. I kinda slept oki, but I will make up for it tonight. LOL

        • EdgarHF

          I’ve been sitting the past 7 hours 33,000 ft in the air in a very confined space with about another 6 hours to go. Fun stuff like that!

          • Shohanna

            OH are you on the way home now?

          • EdgarHF

            Yes, sadly so. I plan on going back next year for a little longer.

          • Shohanna

            I hope you make it home safe and sound. 😀

    • Yo, Sho! Just playing some D&D, at the moment.

      • Shohanna

        Fun Game! /nod

    • notisaidthepig

      I’m getting ready for a nap so I can avoid doing schoolwork. Later!

      • Shohanna

        Later Noti! <3

    • IronPyrite_Reborn

      Hi! Doing well, thanx!

      Got the base structure for my side patio done, and got the water heater fixed yesterday.

      (still trying to get taxes done)

      How’z are you?

      • notisaidthepig

        Oh, I worked on my patio yesterday as well. It’s looking good…

        • IronPyrite_Reborn

          I still have to put up the top slats, and sun shades on mine. Maybe next weekend, if it’s not raining again. Will try to post some pics.

      • Shohanna

        I missed this post!! I am so sorry! I was busy doing the laundry, dishes, little inconsequential things around the house and then I had to go out for a bit. I went to watch Beauty and the Beast! It was great. It made me cry. I recommend it. It’s better then the cartoon. /nod

        I also took a shower and tidied up the bathroom. I am weird like that. lol 😀

    • notisaidthepig
