Famed Jazz Guitarist Charles Johnson Pays Tribute to the late Keith Emerson by Tweeting Photo of Greg Lake.

Another classic rock icon is gone.

Keith Emerson (keyboardist extraordinaire of the power trio Emerson, Lake & Palmer) committed suicide at the age of 71 on 10 March 2016 in Santa Monica California. According to Rolling Stone, Emerson blew his brains out with a hand gun.

Jazz guitarist and fellow ELP bandmate Charles Johnson (who lives within biking distance of the late Emerson)  expressed his sincere condolences in a Tweet:

ELP Confusion

Charles is a pretentious, pathetic petulant poser, and Little Green Footballs deserve their own Theme Song. So, with the powers bestowed upon me and without further ado, I hereby designate the following song to be representative of the aforementioned blog and its rumpswab of an owner, for any reason whatsoever, now and forevermore. Amen.

    Charles obviously wasn’t very familiar with Keith Emerson.

    • Octopus says:

      I knew it was going to turn out like that. 😆

      Yeah, Chunky…there are lots of little old ladies following Trump around, giving him the “Heil Hitler”-salute. Because everyone is as crushingly stupid as you are. 🙄

    Barry, you are clearly an idiot.

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

    Hey Barry, turn the guitar around. The strings aren’t supposed to be touching your stomach.

    The “Meatball Parade” tribute to Fatass reminded me of this:

    Fatass and his delusions of granderp. 😆

    Nobody, not even the celebrities you stalk and tweet at relentlessly, gives a fuck about you. Except for us, of course. We like keeping an eye on your amusing antics. You’re funny! 😆

    • rightymouse says:

      This is an example of why Fatass gets slammed for flagrant chest-thumping. Don’t know how his followers can stand it.
      Oh, forgot. they don’t. His self-funding endeavor has been an unmitigated disaster. 😆

      • Octopus says:

        He gets no support at all. 😦

        Except, as noted previously, from us. We keep his ship afloat. I’m not sure he fully appreciates how important we are, to his enterprise. 😆

    • Arachne says:

      He always says that but yet we never actually see any. And what celebrity would that be? I mean you’re being retweeted by nobodies.

    Sure, why not? Take a page out of the libtard playbook. Two can play that game.

      No one retweets DoorMatt. Because he is brings too much stoopid for people to handle.
      Dude. It’s called “luggage.” I’ll be saying the same thing when I drive to San Francisco International in June to fly to Orlando.

    None of Charles Johnson’s fan club dare tell the emperor he is naked. A very interesting finding.

      No, not a smear job, Chubby – just a chronicling of your blog’s demise. Which we did anyway as a tribute to Andy, who indeed did make that request of us. By the way, you are invited to come here anytime and refute a single fact in our five-part series that is incorrect. But you can’t.

      Your only response to our reveal that another site had the throbbing memo gif was to whine in a tweet that we were trying to “minimize” your contribution to the Rathergate scandal. What you’ve never said is that we LIED.

      Because, you know, you CAN’T.

  21. pineapple says:

    Sorry Toot but… no.

    Your name has become a talisman that right wingers invoke to remind other right wingers just how bat shit crazy you became.

    Koo koo

    • Minnow says:

      yeah Barry, you’re a superstar….. pulling down the easy money too I am sure.

      Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

      And you’re right, none of us right wingers could even comprehend thinking for ourselves like the slack-jawed talisman who has three chins, no job and no money – no friends, no nothing but a fat mouth and a pea sized brain.

      Barry.

      Hahahahahahahahhaahahhahahahahahahaha

    Does anyone know why Instapundit & Michelle Malkin dropped the Twitchy feed from their websites??

  26. This is really getting comical as the GOP joins forces with the leftist media to trash their own candidate. It’s pretty clear they really want the Shrilldebeast in there.

    Is The American Establishment Trying To Get Donald Trump Assassinated?

    Donald Trump evokes strong passions. Most people either love him or hate him. But the people who hate him at the highest levels of power are much more numerous—and they are more wealthy and powerful than his supporters.

    This past week, we’ve watched this play out before our eyes as the elites, through the media, have started to create a narrative designed to paint Trump and his supporters as violent, dangerous bigots who must be eliminated at all costs.But the Establishment has not been able to stump Trump—yet

    The media narrative that Trump’s words inspire violence seems to have sprung from thin air on Friday. It didn’t. To really understand why that narrative emerged now, we have to look at events that led up to it. The prior week, Trump had undergone unprecedented attacks from his challengers and the GOP establishment. First, Mitt Romney delivered a speech attacking Trump from every angle, even hitting Trump for sleeping with attractive women.

    Next, Marco Rubio was designated to be the GOP establishment attack dog. He switched his campaign stump speech from one that was “positive” and focused on policy to one full of goofy, juvenile attacks on Trump making fun of his hair and even the size of Trump’s hands—the implication being that Trump has a small penis.

    On top of Rubio’s insult comic routine, Super Pacs affiliated with the GOP establishment spent $30 million in ads in battle ground states repeating all of Mitt Romney’s attacks. But it was all for naught. Instead of weakening Trump, the attacks only served to make him stronger. He won the Tuesday primaries in Michigan, Missouri, and Hawaii with commanding margins. On the other hand, Marco Rubio, the establishment water boy, saw his numbers plunge.

    In other words, all of the establishment’s conventional methods—television ads and personal attacks—completely failed. This is key to understanding why the nature of the attack on Trump had to change. And so the media began the “Trump’s rhetoric causes violence” mantra.

    After Trump won the Michigan and Missouri primaries with strong numbers, the establishment went into panic mode. They arranged a meeting between execs of top technology companies Apple, Facebook, and Google, and the members of the GOP establishment including Karl Rove, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Ben Sasse and Kevin McCarthy. http://www.thegatewaypundit.co

    The conspirators met on a private island off the coast of Georgia called Sea Island. Their goal? To plot how to stop the GOP front runner—Donald Trump. We don’t know what plans the elite concocted at this meeting because it was invitation-only. However, we may glean the nature of the plan from the events that followed.

    After the meeting, the next Republican debate in Miami was a muted affair. Rubio, Cruz, and Kasich mostly laid back. While they did throw some light punches in Trump’s direction, it was probably the most civil debate to date. Did the other candidates know that the establishment had something in store for Trump?

    The very next day, Trump was scheduled to have a rally in Chicago. Bernie Sanders supporters, and other leftwing groups coordinated a massive protest. This was combined with hundreds of threats of violence on social media, including threats against Trump’s life. To preserve the safety of his supporters, Trump canceled the rally.

    Immediately after the cancellation, all the networks suddenly were carrying the same story—how Donald Trump’s words provoke his followers to violence. There was nothing about the threats on social media to assassinate Trump. Only this unprovable allegation that Trump’s words somehow caused his supporters turn violent. The major newspapers carried the same message.

    The startling things about is how quickly all of the mainstream media outlets adopted the “Trump’s rhetoric causes violence” message. It’s notable because Trump’s rhetoric has never been violent. At most, Trump told his supporters that if someone throws a punch at them at a rally, they should punch right back. But that is not a violent message. It is just common sense self-defense. It is the same advice many mothers give to their sons on their first day of kindergarten.

    Some of the media outlets say that Trump’s message about building a wall and putting a temporary ban on Islamic immigration are somehow inherently violent. But those policies are several months old. Why did the violence narrative suddenly take hold? I believe that this was a coordinated attack by the media, which is owned and controlled by the elite.

    On Saturday morning, Trump had a rally in Dayton, Ohio. I watched the rally with my wife. Trump seemed to be in good spirits and there were almost no protestors. In the middle of the rally, a man jumped the barrier and charged the podium where Trump was speaking.

    Secret Service agents quickly swarmed the podium to protect Trump and detain the alleged attacker, who was identified as a Bernie Sanders supporter with a history of supporting left-wing causes Was he trying to assassinate Trump? Mike Cernovich has done a fantastic job of analyzing the ttacker’s tweets. You can judge for yourself: http://www.dangerandplay.com/2

    You would think that a potential assassination attempt against a presidential frontrunner would be the top story of the day. But the media largely downplayed it as a minor incident. Here is CNN’s original report: Headline: Protester tries to get at Trump (Not an attacker, but a “protester.” And he merely tried to “get at” Trump)

    Subheadline1: Candidate startled as man tries to rush stage in Ohio
    Subheadline2: Trump’s incendiary history

    In other words, the news media is blaming the victim. It was Trump’s “incendiary history” that forced the “protester” to attack. By Saturday night, the story was no longer on CNN’s “top stories” list, but “Obama mocks Trump steaks” was important enough to make the cut.

    Some news aggregators deemed the story not newsworthy and prioritized it below anti-Trump stories.Imagine for a moment if a Trump supporter had rushed Hillary Clinton’s podium? Do you think that the story would have been dropped by the same evening? Or would we be subjected to endless paeans of how brave Hillary was in facing the evil perpetrated by Trump and his minions?

    If one thing is clear from this incident it is that the elite hate Trump with an intensity that borders on the homicidal. They will stop at nothing to frustrate the will of the voters and prevent Trump from ever becoming President.

    The reason is not Trump’s unpolished manner of speaking, but that his policies would put a dent in their pocket books. Bringing immigration under control would shut off the endless supply of cheap labor. Enforcing free and fair trade will make it harder to move American jobs to other, lower wage countries.

    The latest attempt to stop Trump is to incite mentally unstable people to violence against Trump and his supporters. Any violence that results will be immediately blamed on Trump’s immigration and trade policy.

    It is becoming clear that the Elite will not permit Trump to become President. But if the they are successful in eliminating him the resulting fire may engulf the entire nation.

    My advice to Trump supporters is to stay vigilant and don’t be baited into violence. JUST STAY CALM AND VOTE TRUMP

    • rightymouse says:

      Am voting for Cruz in Ohio. 🙂

    • Octopus says:

      Good article. It was obviously a coordinated attack on Trump this past weekend, with involvement of both parties. Nice to know they’re holding secret meetings, on private islands. 😆

    • ISpeakJive says:

      I think I said this before. We have a friend who’s in the thick of things in DC who says the elite are scared shitless of Trump disrupting them feeding at the trough. The secret service is worried someone will attempt to get him from the inside, they hate him so much.

      I worry for him.

      • rightymouse says:

        How horrible! Man…there must be some serious baksheesh at stake for the corrupt assholes.

  27. LOL!

    Teenagers react to Windows 95, cannot imagine what their elders endured<
    It starts with first impressions.

    “The fact that the monitor is bigger than the actual computer itself says a lot” said Daniel, 17 years old, who is young enough to only have vague memories of monitors and TVs that aren’t flat.

    “I’ve no clue what year this is from, but I feel like it was before the year I was born,” said Geneva, age 18, after seeing the mid-90s Dell. Her math checks out.

    The design flaws we all got used to are evident right away. When asked to turn on the computer, everyone hit the big button on the monitor and waited, something we all probably remember doing at some point. When the computer was turned on, the reactions kept coming.

    “I don’t think I’ve ever heard a computer make these sounds before in my life,” said Morgan, age 19, making anyone who felt nostalgic upon hearing the floppy drive click instantly feel 10 years older.

    Then the teens waited for the BIOS screen to go away.

    “This is taking a while,” said Karan Brar, reminding the entire planet what life was like back in ancient times when computers took five minutes to start up and Pterodactylus savaged our cattle.

    Related: If you thought Windows 8 was bad, here are 6 operating systems that failed miserably

    Things don’t get much better when the operating system’s boot screen is revealed.

    “95, as in, like, 1995?” asked Alicia, age 16, who has no memories of the 90s but will be able to vote in just two years.

    Then the operating system finally booted.

    “Everything looks so dull and ancient,” said Brar.

    “It seems more rough, the edges are more sharp, it’s a little more impersonal,” said Nora, age 18, who judging by that comment might have a future as a graphic designer.

    But perhaps the hardest thing to understand for the teens was the lack of wireless connectivity.

    “How do you get on the Internet if there’s no Wi-Fi?” asked Alicia, as though the question itself were nonsense.

    When the produced tried to explain dial-up, things got even more confused.

    “You’d have to use your phone to go on Internet,” one teen said, while actually miming a smartphone in her hand. It shows just how much the meaning of the word “phone” has changed in the course of a generation. The process of connecting to dial-up did not impress anyone, either.

    • Bunk X says:

      Heh. When we upgraded our entire system and moved to Windows 3.5(?) we gave away our Apple IIe to a woman who wanted something simple for word processing. Her “computer guru” next door couldn’t figure out how to boot it with a floppy.

    • Arachne says:

      Beastie says that Trump is “promoting a lynch mentality.” Really, Beastie? YOUR Black Lives Matter movement promotes the very real MURDER of police.

      I wish someone would rush the stage and throw a bucket of water on this bitch. Just to see if it would work.

  28. Minnow says:

    The GOP Establishment can kiss my ass. They are incompetent to the degree they aren’t listening to the American people. They are arrogant and think they know better than we little people. Now we read of secret meetings of the “elite” to figure a way of toppling Trump? What horseshit. Republicans???

    And, they are sore losers. Why does Romney get 1-minute of time in front of a microphone. He proved himself to be a non-effective loser years ago. Go away Romney.

    Rubio, Kasich and even Cruz to a certain degree are all pissed off because they don’t have Trump’s polling numbers and will do anything and say anything because they are being babies about this election. The American people understand these fools and have had enough.

    These morons are beside themselves with envy and now would rather see Hillary win than Trump. These losers should show some dignity and a sense of honor and accept this for what it is. They lost. Boo hoo. Now shut up and leave.

    If we as a party don’t get our shit together pretty soon, Hillary will win.

    Screw them all.

    Go Trump.

    • Octopus says:

      YEEEAAAGGHHH!! 😡

      I’m with you, Minnow…even with all of his faults, Trump is the fair winner of the nomination process, so far. Aside from Cruz, who is mostly lacking in charisma and would be turned into a psychopathic Christian werewolf by the Liberal MSM and their cohorts if he got the nomination, they’re all RINO’s anyway, including the Donald.

      I say, let the People decide, and stop with the conspiratorial skulduggery. The People may want Shrillary over Trump, and that’s a horror to contemplate, but the prospect of a Trump presidency is rife with lots of potential for disappointment and failure, too.

      I guess I’m just not thrilled about the choices. I am enjoying Trump’s outlandish performance, though. Keep going! 😆

      • TreBob says:

        Wasn’t it a South Park episode that (wisely) stated, all elections come down to a choice between a giant douche and a turd sandwich?

        • Octopus says:

          Yes. Like I said before, all the candidates are damaged goods, in some way. Nobody on the GOP-side is as horribly-mangled as Shrillary, though. No wonder she’s always screaming.

      • Arachne says:

        I would prefer to see Ted Cruz on the Supreme Court. His adherence to Constitutional principles and understanding of the originalist intent of the Founders for individual freedom and liberty and the term-for-life would have far more influence in the future – he is an excellent guardian to help drive the barbarians from the gate.

        • Bunk X says:

          THAT would be an excellent consolation prize, and good for the long term.

          • Arachne says:

            Absolumente, Bunk! That being said, if the Donald is the nominee, I would like to see him pull a lot of the ideas Cruz is putting forth as policy on his website and make it part of his campaign as well. They have good ideas these two – time to synthesize.

    • Arachne says:

      While I am not an ardent Trump supporter, I can understand his appeal. What I find more than a little ironic (and I am not the one to first express this, but I love the sentiment) is that after decades of telling the GOP voters to, essentially, “hold their nose and vote for the candidate we give you,” the GOP Elite is now finding the shoe is on the other foot, so to speak….

    • ISpeakJive says:

      He’s good for the process. Pulling the covers off all the elites who are in bed together to manipulate us.

      There’s a Showtime show I’ve only seen the promo for about this election. It shows a group of old, white, rich Republican donors pow-wowing about how to stop Trump. One guy at the table says maybe we shouldn’t. Another guy asks what are the plans to stop him and they go “Oh, we have stuff planned…”

      Has anyone seen it yet? I’ll have to check it out tonight.

      • Octopus says:

        Would they go so far as assassination, though? That’s an appalling thought, but not out of the question, if they’re really that freaked-out about him…which they are.

        • Because olo says:

          That would backfire nuclear.

          • Octopus says:

            Only if they got caught. How hard would it be, to pin it on a deranged liburded loser?

          • Because olo says:

            If they got Ponytail Toot all hot and bothered, maybe he’d go collect Mr. Mossberg and rumble. He’d be the perfect patsy, because he can’t run.

          • Octopus says:

            He would blow his own foot off, though, waddling up the grassy knoll. Or shoot a blonde Secret Service agent, mistaking him for Trump. Can’t see him succeeding at anything, really, with a streak like the one he’s riding.

      • Bunk X says:

        The streak he’s sitting on…
        *brown note*

  29. Nice. Libturds threatening and destroying the property of a little old lady who put out Trump for President signs. Typical thuggery of the left.

  30. Arachne says:

    Where’s dumbass Door Matt? Didn’t he vanquish us with that superior posting of his that turned out to be bullshit? I checked his timeline. Dude NEVER gets retweeted. Probably because people think he’s a pain in the ass.

    By the way has Fatso deleted the erroneous tweet tribute now that it’s been pointed out that he doesn’t know the guitarist from the pianist?

    • pineapple says:

      Toot probably gave him “the talk” again. Not one of the 17 LGF lapdogs are allowed to post here even though they are “adults”, and for that I’m grateful.

      If I wanted to roll around in the mud with assholes I’d get me a Twitter account.

      Mocking Charles “Toot” Johnson makes us laugh. He’s such low hanging fruit.

      Some of us enjoy an occasional booby pic here and there. Try that on LGF and the PC police will downding you into oblivion.

  31. Minnow says:

    I had to read “Who Runs Congress” back in the 1970’s for some college course. It was an investigation into lobbying and the influence it has on Congress.

    Back then, it was a highly developed big business and everyone on the inside knew about it. There were (then) examples of glaring abuse and sheer crookedness, but generally, it was all sort of hush-hush and “the rules” were worked around.

    It seems to me that now, all the holds have been pulled out and everything and anything is fair game. And the culture in Washington, DC is “Hey, if so and so is doing it – it must be alright for me to do it.”

    And the pigs at the trough are squealing with delight.

    No wonder Donald Trump represents such a threat to them.

    • Hunter S Thompson got it right when he said “In a closed society where everybody’s guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity.”

      • Minnow says:

        Wow. Ain’t that the truth.

        I read a couple of his books back in college too. I think though that those were for fun.

        Hey Barry. I went to college.

        Waa haa.

        • Octopus says:

          That was the major problem with HST: people read him seriously, when they should have taken his work as the masterful comedic work of a semi-deranged drug/alcohol addict. He was a brilliant writer, crippled by Sixties-era thinking, much as he attempted to speak condescendingly to hippies. Because he liked shooting guns, he’s not afflicted with the hippie-malaise? Please. Take another Scotch/Nyquil shot, and simmer down, old boy. 😆

          • Minnow says:

            I just checked his bio out because I wanted to remember the books of his I had read. I read the one about the Hells Angels (that was a kick ass book as I recall) and I read the Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 1972. I still remember him describing Edmund Muskie and his addiction to Ibogaine.

            God, that was a long time ago.

            Go Trump.

          • Bunk X says:

            That’s HST in a nutshell. The first paragraph in “Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas” got me hooked. “The Curse of Lono” was hilarious.

          • I read Hell’s Angels which was rather harrowing. And I read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas I think. And what’s the one where he covers the Kentucky Derby? It might be shorter pieces. I just really enjoyed his descriptive writing style and wit and dark humor.

  32. Minnow says:

    Excellent column by Pat Buchanan on the Bullshit that went down in Chicago over the weekend.

    http://www.wnd.com/2016/03/republican-wimps-absolve-the-rioters/

    It is stupefying that all three Republican contenders besides Mr. Trump blamed the protests on….. you guessed it, Mr. Trump.

    It proves to me they are sore losers with the emotional maturity of a five year old.

    Fuck you assholes.

  33. Octopus says:

    Planning my big St. Paddy’s Day dinner, which it turns out is the Irish-American version, with the corned-beef and cabbage. It’s not a thing, in Ireland. I don’t care, though — it’s a thing, in my house, passed down from me lucky Irish mother, and her mother before her.

    I will also be serving up some of my home-brewed American lager, with a nice green tint. Also not a thing, on the Auld Sod. Tough shit, Paddy! You’ll drink your green beer and eat your corned-beef and cabbage, and like it. 🙂

    • rightymouse says:

      We love corned beef, cabbage and taters. Already bought everything. Corned beef goes in the slow cooker with dark beer. Only thing beer’s good for.
      /heads for the hills

      • Octopus says:

        You take that back, about the beer. 😆

        Reminds me of my wife, who insists that all beer tastes the same, and can’t understand our predilection for craft beers, IPA’s, wheat beers, and whatnot. She can taste the difference with a Guinness Stout, though — proving only she’s not completely nuts.

        • rightymouse says:

          Never could stand the taste or smell of beer. And I’ve tried. Really and truly. That said it makes the BEST corned beef.

          • Octopus says:

            Well, we all have our likes and dislikes. I wish I wasn’t as fond of the taste of beer, to be honest. It’s just so satisfying, from every aspect. Except the part where it makes you fat and bloated — that we could do without.

            I’ve never used it to cook the corned beef, though. I might have to try that. You use Guinness, or a lesser stout? You mix it with the water, I would guess. Or do you fill the pot with precious beer….NO! 😯

          • rightymouse says:

            Am using a Kentucky Bourbon barrel Stout. It’s in my pantry and it makes yummy corned beef. Water? Bite yer tongue.

          • Octopus says:

          • ISpeakJive says:

            Bought a corned beef today, gonna try out the beer deal.

            I like beer except when somebody tries to mix it with lemonade or tomato juice or whatever Godforsaken liquid they think of. Gak, gak, gak, gak, gak, patooie.

          • rightymouse says:

            Don’t forget to add the package of seasonings that comes with the corned beef. 🙂

      • Arachne says:

        And colcannon. I like it when St. Pat’s day is on a weekend and I can do the whole “Irish” spread – Colcannon, corned beef, cabbage, soda bread, and my special Irish frosty cocktail.

        • Octopus says:

          Anyone for an Irish Car Bomb?

          They were serving them up at a party I attended a few years ago. Too much chugging involved for me, but very tasty.

            Calling it a car bomb is culturally insensitive. No really. Here’s a Huffpo nanny lecture on it. They may be right, though. Say the wrong thing in a pub in Northern Ireland and you may not survive to regret it the next day.

            http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/03/17/irish-car-bomb-drink_n_2867367.html

            “Because of the Irish ingredients, someone thought it was a good idea to name it an Irish Car Bomb. It was not. Car bombs are not taken lightly in Ireland and the name makes reference to a difficult time in Ireland — one where many people were hurt, and times were hard. It’s offensive and naming a drink after this time in history doesn’t really make a lot of sense — it’s just insensitive.”

            A few comments are from young people who are confused about the name. Was there a car bomb in Ireland or something?? Oy.

    Oh noes! Fauxcahontas is heap big mad at the Trumpster. She’s going to dig out the family tomahawk her mom told her about. Now, where the heck is that thing?

    Alas, the end of an era.

    Doctor Anal’s butthole-massaging days are over

    The unnamed doc claimed to have attained “very good results” with the massages, performing up to 1,000 rubs a session, according to The Local.

    He was first warned for performing the unorthodox method back in 2003, when he performed the technique on an elderly woman suffering headaches and back pain. She described the procedure as “an incredibly offensive encroachment.”

    And Sweden’s medical board agreed, calling it “dubious for a number of reasons” including that the muscles that actually needed to be relaxed couldn’t be reached.

    Neighboring Norway booted him from practicing in their country in 2006 only two weeks after he set up shop. But he was allowed to continue to practice after appealing to the courts in 2008.

    He gave an interview to Aftonbladet, a Swedish tabloid, chalking up his curious bedside manner to being on the autism spectrum.

    “I have a personality disorder, or rather a syndrome, a form of Aspergers,” he said. “Just like Bill Gates or Einstein.”

    • Octopus says:

      Wow. 😆

      The most impressive and disturbing part of that story, is that the guy had customers, and probably a lot of repeat-customers, who knew the drill and dug the drill.

  37. ISTE says:

    Still seven retweets and four likes.

    Interestingly after being informed of the error they made the assholes who liked his tweet or retweeted it not one unliked or un retweeted it.

    Even more interesting, the four that liked it blocked me.

    If I am ever wrong I admit it.

    • Octopus says:

      Chunky decided to ignore the hideous error, and pretend it never happened — just like he has done with every other one of his gross gaffes. 😆

    As a wonderful break to the hideous world of political bullshit and lots of other bullshit too, I point out that Dallas Seavey looks like he will win the Iditarod Race. His father is running a close second.

    Sad to think though that some 26-year old dumb ass drunk had to mar this year’s race by killing at least one dog and injuring several others.

    Go Dallas. Go everyone else.

    Fuck you drunk fuck.

    Go Trump.

    • Minnow says:

      oh yeah, and fuck you Barry, you miserable stupid fuck.

    • calo says:

      Minnow, when you get back to Galveston, I’ll bring my sled pups to visit you.

      We will never forget the Iditeroid, even here in the Deep South.

      • calo says:

        I’ll even buy you a beer and tell you a tale of Mookie, my first sled dog, who took out a coyote, trying to kill one of my pups.

      • Minnow says:

        Calo, it sounds like so much fun to head to Tejas. I really need to get there and you aren’t the only one I need to look up there. I have several friends there who ask regularly…

        Not to mention No. 1 Chick friend Pam in New Orleans.

        Why do I have to be so G.D. busy.

        Thank you for pulling me down from this stupid cloud I am in.

        I can think of nothing more fun than heading for the Seawall and going to the Poop Deck.

        I wonder if it is still there!

        • calo says:

          I know you are still grieving the loss of your pup.

          My sympathies, truly.

        • Minnow says:

          Wow – it is still there. Can that be the same place? It is at the right location on the seawall. It use to be accessible by this very narrow staircase (inside). Now it looks like they built a deck and stairway outside.

          My friend Ron and I would go every Thursday night. We couldn’t go on the weekends because there was always like 50- bikes parked out front and some guy guarding them.

          But on Thursday, no problemo.

          And there was always this fellow in a wheelchair with M.S. All I know is that every Thursday night at closing time, Ron and I would carry him and his wheelchair down those stairs. And we never dropped him.

          Then, he would take us over to his apartment a few blocks away (meaning we gave him a ride home) and make us “sandwiches”.

          And we would drink until school started the next morning.

          God, I miss those days.

    …with which most of us conservatives are fine. It needs ripping apart.

    At the same time, Shrillary is a true nightmare-candidate, and she is ripping the Left apart — which the Left definitely doesn’t want, as they are coasting along very comfortably with their Palace Guard Media and legions of moonbats and SJW’s. Salon is tortured, tortured I say! 😆

    Fatass must have really needed that fifty bucks from Vogel – he hasn’t gone back and made a phony “Anonymous” donation to continue to jump start the begging bowl.

    I have to laugh – I actually thought he would have reached at least 3/4ths of the goal by now – shit, he’s barely 1/3 of the way. He’s got a month and a half before it’s a YEAR. I doubt he’s getting any sort of tax return which he could have used to save himself embarrassment.

    He must really, really, REALLY need the money, to expose himself to the humiliation of the failure that is the GofFundMe begging bowl. If the down over the weekend really was failure to pay the PG&E bill, I imagine that the servers will be the next thing to go. He hasn’t the scratch to pay the mortgage/rent, water, garbage (unless of course he sneaks out at night on garbage day and sticks the bags in his neighbors’ bins) and internet service (unless of course, he’s stealing wifi from a neighbor).

    • Maybe it’s that it’s a bit of a ham-fisted approach. Most people understand that he’s saying give me some of your hard-earned money so I can stay at home and have piss matches and pull ponytails on Twitter in my sweatpants and socks all day. And he put it under the category of Art which is disingenuous and deceptive. Like he’s a starving artist and not an internet troll.
