    Arguing on Twitter is like getting your account suspended?

    • Octopus says:

      From what I hear, that’s exactly what it’s like. 😆

      • Octopus says:

        I see the cowardly little pissants have James Woods back in Twitter-jail, locked up for refusing to bend the knee to their one-sided “Rules Of Engagement.” Why does anyone put up with this crap?

  2. Octopus says:

    Fatass got his nose out of joint because lame-ass Maher took a very short break from bashing Trump to mocking Biden, very gently. 😆

    Bunk – did you make it to Ohio or have an update on your sis?

    • Bunk Strutts says:

      Yeah we’re all at the hospital. Sister is alert,has breathing troubles but we can talk a bit. Got her to laugh and that’s a good sign.

    • Bunk Strutts says:

      I hate typing on a cell phone, so so updates will be sporadic.

    • Bunk Strutts says:

      Sister is doing better, still a long way to go. She’s still having mental problems, but seems to be coming out of the delirium slowly. We got her to laugh on Sunday, and she was joking on Monday. Sometimes she seems semi-lucid, but then she drifts, starts talking irrationally.

      Doctors have noticed daily improvement, both physical and mental, and she’s going to be discharged from the hospital into a rehab facility downstairs.

      The best signs are that we got her to laugh, and she was able to joke back, but then she fades off, asks about where she’s going to sleep, if she has plane tickets, stuff like that.

      The nurses were trying to adjust her in her bed, and she got loud and belligerent. The nurse asked her, “What will it take for you to help us out?”

      “Give me some wine!” Later she started on me. “Why are you making it so difficult? It’s not like I’m going to be driving anywhere.” I take arguing as a good sign, even if she was still in delirium. I play along. “Yeah, we’re working on it, but they won’t let us bring it in.” Stuff like that. Cools her down.

      Doctor called this morning, said he’s observed more improvement from yesterday, both mental and physical. I’m praying for the mental recovery first, so that my sister may be able to make some legal decisions…

      Also, the Missus and I both agreed that for the next trip to Ohio, we’re going by ourselves. I’ll not say more. 😀


      • Bunk Strutts says:

        BTW, I appreciate the concern. I really do. The rubberbands on my head aren’t squeezing as much.

        • Calo says:

          Sometimes, dealing with patient’s family members emotions and their subsequent actions are more difficult than dealing with the patient. Be patient with them, Bunk. Glad you and the missus got to get a few days off to visit your sister.

      • rightymouse says:

        Thanks for the update! We’re thinking of you & sis! Do the docs know what she has??

        • Bunk Strutts says:

          No. They’re still ruling out things. I want her mind back first.

          • Bunk Strutts says:

            Once everyone was in the same room talking to the doctors and nurses, a lot of information came out that I was unaware of. Little things. Hints. Individual recollections dating back to December were overlooked, didn’t seem odd at the time. Now I see what happened.

  5. rightymouse says:

    😆 😆 😆

    A teacher asked her class how many of them were Bernie Sanders fans.
    Not really knowing what a Bernie Sanders fan is, but wanting to be liked by the teacher, all the kids raised their hands except for Little Johnny.
    The teacher asked Little Johnny why he has decided to be different…again.
    Little Johnny said, ‘Because I’m not a Bernie Sanders fan.’
    The teacher asked, ‘Why aren’t you a Bernie Sanders fan?’
    Johnny said, ‘Because I’m a Conservative.’
    The teacher asked him why he’s a Conservative.
    Little Johnny answered, ‘Well, my Mom’s a Conservative and my Dad’s a Conservative, so I’m a Conservative.’
    Annoyed by this answer, the teacher asked, ‘If your Mom was a Moron and your Dad was an idiot, what would that make you?’
    Little Johnny replied, ‘A Bernie Sanders fan.’

    • Bunk Strutts says:

      I remember something like that happened to me in elementary school, and I told my Dad.
      Dad told me to tell my teacher to keep her political opinions to herself, so I did.

      I remember the look on her face.

      Those are always good. The first President I ever actually enjoyed watching on the telly. He’s funny, and he’s right about nearly everything he says. You can tell he’s having fun, especially when he’s saying something he knows will enrage his enemies. 😆

    2019 NY Reproductive Health Act.

    “The act legalizes abortion “at any time when necessary to protect a woman’s life or health”.[3][4] The act allows medical professionals who are not doctors to perform abortions.[5] It also repealed criminal charges for harming unborn children.”

      Gus is “Center Left?” Heh. Yeah, sure. Middle left, maybe. Far left likely.

  14. Octopus says:

    Gus haz a sad because we sunk the Yamato before she could kill a crapload of American sailors. Is he similarly butthurt about teh Bismarck? 😆

    Yamato is such a beautiful movie.
    3 hours ago
    I am sorry Japan.
    3 hours ago
    Americans think they’re the center of the universe. All of them.
    4 hours ago
    To all the men that died on the Yamato. A toast.
    4 hours ago

    Note: I look forward to seeing this movie, and cheering as Yamato sinks beneath the waves, while the captain swims off to drown himself in shame. Sorry, Gus — educate yourself about the atrocities committed by Japan during the war, everywhere they invaded, and get back to us with your shit-eating remorse. Save some Sterno for that toast, plz.

    • rightymouse says:

      Apparently, Gussy never read ‘The Rape of Nanking’ or “A Plague upon Humanity”. Am grateful my Dad survived the Japanese camp in China. Gussy was probably drunk & smoking dope again.

    • OLT says:

      Americans *were* the center of the universe in that war. American blood, American treasure, and American ingenuity saved the world, literally, in a war that we could have (almost did) sat out (ala the “Fortress America” of the Isolationists). Then maybe the Nazis* could’ve had nukes first. That would make your Argentine heart swell with pride, no?

      Anyway, that’s my opinion and FACT. If that bothers you, it sounds like a personal problem to me Gus-Gus.

      *REAL Nazis, not the fake ones Democrats whinge and pule about

      • Pakimon says:

        I’m sure Gus would sputter, “but but but … the Russians!” not taking into account that American Lend-Lease kept the Soviet Union afloat until they could get their industrial production reestablished east of the Urals.

        Without it, they would’ve been screwed.

        Sidenote: I wonder if this comment will prompt Sergey Stroganoff, (or whatever his name was) the President of the LGF Uncle Joe Stalin fan club to swoop in and start honking with righteous Stalinist indignation? 😆

        • Octopus says:

          Not to mention, the only thing worse for the Russian and Ukrainian people being occupied by genocidal Krauts, was being led to slaughter and starved to death by Stalin. Yes, they fought the largest tank and infantry battles of all time, and paid dearly in blood to drive the Nazi scum out of the country, but then they turned out to be worse than Nazis. It can be convincingly argued that Stalin was worse than Hitler. Personally, I think they were about the same level of demon, and it was good that they found each other.

    • Pakimon says:

      Instead of simpering about the Yamato, you would think he would be sniveling about the loss of mighty warship ARA General Belgrano.

  15. Octopus says:

    This could be good. The Clinton Connection is strong in this case. How much chicanery will come out?

          Some thought it came across as “poor shaming.”

          Oh, fer crissakes! It’s the exact same money-saving tips every financial planner in the world repeats, ad nauseum. 😆

          Chonky sure picked the wrong SJW-snifflefest to jump in on with his complete lack of humorous instinct. His lame attempts at jokes always backfire. I guess that’s funny, but is unintentional self-beclownment a viable road to popularity for our scary-poor Scaramouche? I think not. Time will tell.

          It’s been a month now since his last “anonymous” donors kicked in their piddling pennies, in his awful, failed GoFundMe debacle. I happened to notice a shiny green button that said, “Check for latest update,” so I clicked it. Cazart! It’s the one and only update, and it was filed one month after the begging bowl first hit the pavement, some 47 months ago. Listen to this fat loser, who is STILL woefully shy of his original $10k goal, which he has since upped to $20k for some unknown reason:

          Update 1
          Posted by Charles Johnson
          47 months ago

          To everyone who’s donated so far: thank you sincerely for supporting LGF! We’ve gotten more than a quarter of the way toward our goal, but we still need your help to make it the rest of the way. Donate today to help LGF continue our fight against the reactionary forces of the right wing (with lots of music and comedy along the way)!

          Right after that month of collecting a couple thousand bucks from his fast-dwindling pack of scrunts, the bowl dried up like a squashed lizard in the hot sun on Venice Blvd in Culver City. So many failed attempts to resuscitate it, with self-supplied donations, and constant badgering of famous people and some hog named Oliver. Nothing works!

  18. Octopus says:

    Darn that stopped-clock! 😆

    • OLT says:

      No need for the word “far”.

      • Octopus says:

        Gus hints at it, but he isn’t quite ready to go that far, and tell the whole truth about the party he’s been supporting for the past ten years or so. Get him another couple shots and a bong-hit, and maybe he’ll come clean.

  19. Octopus says:

    She actually tweeted this out? 😆

    • Octopus says:

      Hmm…we’ve got some wicked potholes around here, as always in the spring. Gus, I’ll pay you to go on Penis Patrol and get these wet holes filled. Shaking the cans will keep your wrist strong and limber, for your alley job.

  21. Octopus says:

    Buttplug is an anti-vaxxer. 😆

    Chonky and the other Collusion Dead-Enders are hating on ultra-left journalist Matt Taibbi, who has actually read the Mueller document and knows Barr correctly read its conclusions. The Idiot Left is unable to process the information, after two years of perfervid promises from their thought leaders. 😆

    • OLT says:

      Enjoy burning in the Hell you helped create, Matt old boy.

      You encouraged loony hysteria, you got it. The genie does NOT go back in the bottle in this story.

      Enjoy yer pals. I’ll be over here, sipping whiskey and making sure my gear’s in order. You know, for the End Times you asked for. I don’t think they’re going to end quite as you hoped, though.

  22. Octopus says:

    She’s got my vote! 🙂

    But seriously, she’s got better qualifications than the likes of AOC and her Muslim Terrorist Pals in Congress. So what if she’s a mermaid? A queer, feminist mermaid? She could probably perform at Sea World along the campaign trail, now that they’ve deep-sixed the problematic orcas.

    • rightymouse says:

      It reads like satire, but isn’t. Holy crap!! 😯

      • Octopus says:

        It’s always been hard to write good satire, but with the Left being the way it is now, it’s downright impossible. How can you tell the difference between a story like this, and one plucked from The Babylon Bee, for instance? You can’t. They’re equally ludicrous.

        Democrats Call Upon Nation To Unify Against Other Half Of Nation
        April 30th, 2019

        U.S.—Leading Democrats made a rousing call for unity in a deeply divided nation last week, pledging to “speak no ill” of any candidate as long as that candidate was a Democrat. “It’s time for this country to heal, join hands, and unify against the other half of the country,” said Democratic senator Karen Whitfield from New Hampshire. “The only way to end the deep division the nation has faced is to commit yourself to not even questioning or having a single negative thought about anyone who calls themselves a Democrat.”

        The #IPledge campaign, started by civility champions and huge celebrities George Tekai and Alyssa Milano, asks those who join it to stop asking Democratic candidates annoying questions or pointing out when candidates say or do stupid things or commit crimes. The movement has birthed such slogans as “hold left hands to punch the right,” “Criticism is Treason,” and “Questioning is for Traitors.”

        A written pledge has been drafted and Democrats across the nation have been asked to sign the document to unify with half the country. Those who refuse will be executed.

  23. Octopus says:

    Wall Street Democrats are very unhappy about the contents of their clown car, and its prospects for beating Trump in 2020. As they should be. 🙂

      I wonder who will take her old position as Royal Consort?

    • rightymouse says:

      The new King is a joke. His Father was a revered monarch and somehow his only son turned into a spoiled, selfish womanizer. Dude has more illegitimate kids than anyone can count. But I have to be careful what I say when in Thailand because of lese majeste.

        The first time I went to Bangkok, in May of 1996, was the day of the King’s 50th anniversary as monarch. I have vivid memories of checking into my guest house near the fabled Khao San Road and watching the fireworks over the city from the balcony at the end of my hall.

        • rightymouse says:

          We loved the previous King. Wonderful man! Have no idea how he sired such an a-hole for a son.

    I spent a good part of Tuesday waiting in airports, and I got a copy of USA Today. If anyone gets their news from that propaganda rag and believes it, they don’t deserve to vote.

    Met a friend I hadn’t seen or spoken with in about a decade. He’s one of those guys that you don’t keep in touch with regularly, but when you do, you just pick up where you left off.

    He asked for my opinion of Breitbart. 😀

    • Bunk Strutts says:

      He also had a lot to say about the Fire Fighters Union supporting Joe Biden. He said that Trump was spot on, that the union leader is corrupt, that the majority of union members support Trump but they have no say.

      My friend is a retired Fire Chief.

      • Octopus says:

        A big union leader is corrupt? NOOOOOOOO!! 😆

        When I was working at GM Hydra-Matic after high school, there was a huge scandal involving stolen dues-money, lavish vacations, wild parties, and other such shenanigans at the local union shop. They managed to fire most of the upper-echelon of crooked slugs, and bring in a new crew to do nothing in between contract negotiations. 😆

        We were strongly advised to vote Democrap in the ’80 election, of course, because Reagan was going to abolish the unions and put us all back in chains. I didn’t vote at all, because I was young and lazy and working the midnight shift — it would have disturbed my sleep. I would have voted for Carter, probably, being a liberal stooge at the time.

      • rightymouse says:

        One of my first Temp jobs when I moved to Cleveland to be with my honey, was at a Union Management office downtown. They had bars on the doors & the dudes (Italians) running the place had eyes as black as snakes. When I had to take a day off for a job interview (at the company I still work for now), they told me not to come back. Real labor supporters that bunch were. 😆

        Yeah we were told if some dude walks in one day wearing lipstick, a wig, a skirt and heels and wants us to call her Wanda instead of Walter, we’re supposed to just pretend we don’t notice. Or we could LOSE OUR JOB!! Mind you although it’s OK to wear jeans our SVP has a rule that men must wear collared shirts. So I can wear a skirt but my shirt better have a collar. Does that make any fucking sense?

    • rightymouse says:

      Just met with our financial advisor. Lots to sort out. This is likely my last year there. 😦

      • Octopus says:

        Well, usually when companies get bought out the new owners come in with bean-counters blazing, looking to cut salary, merge jobs, weed out expendables, and generally impose their will and identity in every way possible. Occasionally they’re more subtle, and actually desire the company they’ve acquired to continue functioning the way it was, without major changes. My guess is, since you’re working closely with the current boss, and his responsibilities are likely to change, you might be on thin ice with the new regime. Just spit-ballin’, based on what I’ve seen over the years.

        • rightymouse says:

          My boss had to resign as Chairman a few months ago while the buyout was in the works. He’s ok with things although was not happy at first. I continue to work for his brother (President) and nephew, a V.P. But you’re right, once the bean counters show up, my job may be on the chopping block. That’s ok. I’ll be ready.

    I don’t think Buttguy has a chance in hell of beating Trump, but who the hell knows? Part of me would be very amused by the prospect of a gay couple inhabiting the WH, dealing with the Islamist nutjobs who would be beside themselves, wanting to throw them off buildings and whatnot.

  34. Octopus says:

    The awesome irony of this SJW-snifflefest is the fact that the artist was a Communist who didn’t like Washington or America very much, and included panels in the mural to show George had real faults that were emblematic of his time. NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!1! We must erase history entirely, lest current snowflake-students be triggered into killing themselves or one of their many cats. Basically, they read “1984” as a how-to manual. These petulant little shits are no different than the Islamist crazies who have to blow up any statues that survive from the past, such as the Buddhist statues destroyed in Afghanistan by Taliban morons. There can be no history, except that sanctioned by the New Regime. What a slippery slope we’re on…

    What a stark depiction of his opinions of black folks’ child-rearing abilities, though. Might as well just kill the kids, rather than try to nurture them into becoming responsible adults. Incredible statement.

  38. Axing for a friend says:

    Wow. They don’t call it Californication for nothing. This seems very unsafe all around and in my prudish opinion has no place in high school life. Boys in high school are not nearly as mature as girls. To celebrate this foolish girl in the school paper as a “noble sex worker” aka porn whore is to invite derision and even violence on her. The girl herself, despite her “adult” pursuits seems rather immature in her thinking and oblivious to unintended consequences. And the advisor should be fired out of hand. Most of the kids and their parents are going to view her as a big stupid slut. And a very bad influence on their kids. And think how insecure kids are sexually coming into high-school. Some have never even kissed the other sex but they dream about it. Maybe they’re shy or have acne or are fat. But sitting next to them in class is a highly sexually active porn professional. Unceremonious end of innocence right there. Where ARE the parents??? Are they even mentioned in this article? If she’s a public porno worker which it sounds like she is already they should just expel her from day school and tell her to take night classes to finish up.

  39. Axing for a friend says:

    The nightmare continues for Chonky! If only he could get people to see that Trump’s a grifter (which btw means small scale swindling – think Clinton’s stealing the WH silverware as “souveniers”) and a conman. He’s conning the American people that jobs, growth, trade parity, business investment, energy independence and generally defending America’s interests from ghoulish globalists is some how a GOOD THING!! America YOU FOOL!!!

    Check this out for a laugh. The excerpts from the book (Obama: A Call of History) are a hoot! Chonky’s buying it through Amazon today no doubt.

    But soon he was unable to contain his rage which escalated after he met Trump in the Oval Office.

    Baker writes that despite being cordial in public he afterwards summoned Rhodes who told him that Trump ‘peddles in b*******’

    Rhodes said: ‘That character has always been part of the American story. You can see it right back to some of the characters in Huckleberry Finn’.

    Obama replied: ‘Maybe that’s the best we can hope for’.

    As the weeks went by Obama went through ‘multiple emotional stages’, at times being philosophical and other times he ‘flashed anger’.

    He also showed a rare self-doubt and wondered if ‘maybe this is what people want’, Baker writes.

    Obama told one aide: ‘I’ve got the economy set up well for him. No facts. No consequences. They can just have a cartoon’.

    Does he mean this character?

    The King River con man who claims to be the disappeared heir to the French throne and takes control of Huck and Jim’s raft.

Me, I have the yard guys come and take care of it weekday mornings, when decent people are all at work. 😆

    • Axing for a friend says:

      Same here. After my near demise with health issues a couple years ago we hired the guy we had been buying fire wood from. Turns out he has a lawn cutting, light landscaping outfit. It’s awesome. My backyard is ridiculously down hilled. It’s tiered but to create useable flat sections it’s necessary to have 2 one hundred foot wide steeply graded sections. These cannot be cut with a non-commercial walking mower because there’s no footing. So for years I’d go at it 2 or maybe 3 times a summer with my Stihl brushcutter. This is pretty much torture and not fun or rewarding yard work. And inevitably I would procrastinate and the yard would start to look like hell in back and every time I’d look at it I’d feel lousy. Now it’s AWESOME. Doug comes once a month through Spring to Fall and that’s all taken care of. If the front yard starts to look shaggy it’s easy to give it an interim cut with my Honda.

      But yeah, I still have to shut my windows as my poor neighbor is still cutting his lawn in sections like 3 times a week because it’s a pain to do it all at once. And my cross the street neighbor is rather neurotic about blowing his yard and driveway like, every day.

      • Octopus says:

        I have a steep hill for a backyard, too. What a bitch to mow with a regular mower! The best present I ever got, was when She hired the lawn service. 😄

        • rightymouse says:

          It’s been too wet & rainy to do any yard work. We have a mess from winter to clean up. 😦

    Fatass is projecting again. 😄

    If by some horrible disaster Trump was to lose in 2020, he’d graciously concede and return to his awesome life in the full knowledge that he’d done his best by the country he loves, and which loved him back. The sane ones loved him, anyway.

    Haven’t had a good yoga workout for awhile. Get it, Britney! Lookin’ good. 😄

    • Axing for a friend says:

      Yeah she’s fine and very fit. Pretty strong upper body too doing that hand stand walk.

      • Octopus says:

        I was following the story about her medication and conservatorship issues the past few weeks — it’s really a tightrope she’s walking. Medications tend to stop working and need to be tinkered with, and she still doesn’t have hers working as well as they hoped. Dad is in poor health, and he’s the only one she can really trust. I would hate to see her go into another death-spiral like the one that nearly ended her.

    Hubby and I are watching “The Patriot”. Timeless!

    • Octopus says:

      Great movie, but a little rough for the kids when we watched it around the time it went to video. The horses getting staked during the last battle was the last straw. 😯

      • rightymouse says:

        I can only imagine what war must have been like back in 1776.

        • Octopus says:

          War is always hideous, but it was more up-close and personal in those days. Bad wounds were fatal, with no penicillin and barbaric surgical methods. Imagine hacking someone with a sword, or spearing them with a bayonet. Not for the squeamish.

      Amazing. How prescient!!

      • Octopus says:

        Dad is rightfully concerned about the social impact of computer life. It’s a revolutionary change in business and social interaction, with as many negatives as positives, if not more of the bad things. I try to remain optimistic in general, but…well, you know. The internet is a poopfest 💩!

  58. rightymouse says:

    If any of you have a twitter account, please vote. 😆

    Gussy. STOP SMOKING!! As an alternative, try vaping. As for your knee, go see a decent orthopedic doctor, for crying out loud.

    The one BP med my doc prescribed (Valsartan) caused hell with my right leg muscles. So I got help and after a week of steroids and two weeks of muscle relaxers, I can finally walk without discomfort & limping. SO GET EFFING HELP!! Geebus!!

    • Octopus says:

      Something tells me Gus isn’t about to embrace ANY kind of self-improvement program. That’s too bad, but it’s the life he’s chosen, or which chose him, if you believe in fate and all that rot. He enjoys whining.

      A heavy-drinking colleague of mine once told me, “You fitness freaks wake up all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, but that’s the best you’re going to feel all day, while I get better and better.” I was running before work every day at the time. He had a point, but he did die in his early-60’s, so I can still beat him on that score if I don’t get hit by a truck or stray bullet.

      • Bunk X says:

        I recall that argument.

        It’s like when Winston Churchill was accused of being drunk. He told the woman that she was ugly, but that at least he would be sober in the morning.

        • Bunk X says:

          I used that one on a miserable roomate decades ago.

          “You’re drunk!”
          “Yeah, but you’re a bitch. At least I’ll be sober in the morning.”

          It all went downhill from there.

          • Octopus says:

            Did that bitch not know it was your goal that evening to get drunk and sassy? 😆

    I’m not a fan of the mint julep, but maybe I just haven’t had a properly-prepared one. On the other hand, I’m not a big mint guy.

      Bourbon and sugar is a guaranteed headache.

      • Octopus says:

        Real bourbon people are horrified by the thought of ruining good bourbon with nasty mixers. They barely allow ice. 😆

        Me, I love any kind of good whiskey on the rocks. Not cold whiskey rocks, made from real stone, but good old ice rocks that melt while you drink, until you get that last good taste mixed with icewater.

    Sunday evening in Houston and cooking a nice spicy curry meal.

    Beef, peppers and broccoli and very hot and spicy curry powder.

    Now, of course you men out there know this, but I do not think many women do.

    Normally it is customary to wash hands after using the bathroom.

    When cooking Indian food hands are washed BEFORE taking a piss.

    Believe me, men only make that mistake once….


    • Bunk X says:

      The rule is to wash your hands before preparing a meal, and do not piss on your hands after washing them.

      That is all.

    Anti-Trump black thugs assaulted a group of N. Korean and S. Korean defection helpers. They tore their MAGA hats off their heads and stole them and insulted and physically menaced them in the street in DC. They weren’t hurt but had the understanding had they fought back the vicious thugs would have seriously beaten them. The black thugs were proud of it and posted it on Twitter where thousands of sick libturds cheered it on. I would guess Chonky was among them.

    According to the article they were really shocked this could happen in America where everyone is supposed to have freedom of speech and expression. Not be attacked in a cross walk for wearing a pro-Trump hat!

    • Octopus says:

      Sickening acts of fascism are just fine with the Left these days, from the lowliest street thugs to the CEO’s of billion-dollar corporations. Silence dissent! Just ask Chonky McGoo, a leading proponent of the ban-stick for many years now.
