Leave It To The Pros

Osama bin Laden tried to bring down the US by violently provoking it into getting itself over-committed in military adventures in the middle-east. He underestimated our cash flow.

What he should have done was invest in a few well-targeted Facebook ads, like Putin did, that would provoke us into electing an incompetent lawless idiot who would then destroy our government from the inside.

Descent

The destruction of our system of government aside, I do like watching the GOP become the pro-Russia party of lawlessness, immorality and unthinking devotion to a proud proponent of sexual assault who made his money by bilking investors and contractors in a series of bankruptcies, mail-order scams and tax evasion.

You’ve come a long way from pretending to be the moral standard bearers of the world, you despicable frauds.

Emerald Isle

Spent the last week at the beach.

Awesome weather: a perfect string of warm clear days (it hasn’t rained in most of NC in over a month).

Friends who live there took us on their boat to Cape Lookout. Easily one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been – the five of us we were one of two groups of people there, on this little inaccessible spit of perfect brown-sugar sand sticking out into the ocean where endless schools of small fish raced by, under clear skies, with the big lighthouse just across the little bay. No pix, because no camera could do it justice.

So, here’s a dark waning sunset.

You Dropped A Bong On Me

A Florida high school was evacuated Thursday after “bong” was misheard as “bomb.”

A family member of a student at Marianna High School called a staff member and said the student had a “bong” in their backpack, School Superintendent H. Larry Moore said in an online statement.

The staff member on the other line heard “bomb,” prompting them to report the situation to administrators for “appropriate action” to be taken, Moore said.

Baby.

Times

Thirty years from now, the graduating class of 2049 will not believe that there were people who defended Trump even after learning about everything that’s come out this past week. And when shown proof, they’ll just roll their eyes at how dumb people must have been in 2019.
