Molly!


Let me take a bit of time between resisting to tell you about Molly.

We were blessed with Molly one day in April of 2016 when the stars aligned and we were just 5 minutes ahead of another family when we saw her in the local animal shelter. Her name was Baby, she was 11, she had cancer, she had been used as a breeder dog, and she had just been spayed. And there, in a cage, stood the most beautiful spirit I had ever laid eyes on, at least for a dog, and about 99% of humans. Baby was up for adoption and I immediately wanted her to come live with us. We changed her name to Molly, paid the fees. and took this 58 pound Golden Retriever home to enrich our home. Man, did she ever.

Molly loved the back yard to roam freely for perhaps the first time in her 11 years. She loved her treats. She loved to eat. She loved to play when her age let her. She loved to go on walks with her "brother" Jack. She loved to lay around and be brushed. She loved to be petted. She loved to fart and belch and make goofy faces. Molly was the sweetest most loving dog Ive ever had.

But Molly was now 13 and slowing down. She didnt get up as much as she used to, The last time she went for a walk she barely made it a half mile and threw up when she was finally finished exploring the woods of the park. She drank water constantly. She became incontinent to the point we had to put puppy pads all over the house. And then last week, she basically stopped functioning. She panted so deeply it was scary. She drank bowls of water at one time. She developed diarrhea. Yep, the vet said she had a fever of 105 and had become diabetic. She weighed 41 pounds down 17 from when she adopted us. The vet said everything except put her down but the implication was there.

We began to give her insulin shots, anti biotics and incontinence pills. It worked for a couple of days. She began begging for people food again and ate her canned diabetic food.

It didnt last and yesterday she stopped eating. She threw up her pills. She threw up her water. She went to the back yard and laid in the leaves far away from the way back inside. She was miserable. But we persisted to allow Max to come home and say goodbye. Hopefully she'd last until Thanksgiving vacation.

Late last night, she came into the bedroom as she had for 18 months to be petted. But this time was different. She looked up at me with cloudy eyes and a heavy pant. She got her love and then collapsed to the ground. She panted heavily and then raised her tired body up and threw up whatever she had in her stomach for the last time. She laid her head down and groaned. You could feel her suffering. I cried for her as I laid next to her on the floor and made a decision that she should suffer no more. I told her that I would make it stop. We called Max to come home and say his goodbyes. He arrived and her tail wagged in greeting. I damn near lost it again.

We drove her to the 24 hours Emergency Pet Care and carried her in. She laid on a table and panted heavily. Her eyes seemed to come back to life being surrounded by her family that loved her so much. I almost said forget it she's going home but my senses overcame my selfishness.

The vet came in and gave her a sedative to calm her suffering and heavy breathing. We petted her and kissed her and bawled like babies as the final sedative was administered. I looked into her bright eyes and smiled at her. Max's Mom felt her heartbeat speed up and then stop, I saw her eyes go from bright to blank. She was gone. Our lives were not better. Hers may have been.

Last night at around 5am I heard steps on the deck where Molly would go outside and go down stairs to roam her kingdom back yard. The pattern was hers, like a horse clopping on the cement. Her collar, which I had removed and put on a TV stand, suddenly fell to the ground. It made me sit up and freak out a bit.

Yes, Molly, so long. Say hi to Pete, Bear, Cali, and Flakey.

Thinking On Monday!


1)
Donald Trump, the Embarrassment In Chief, cannot stop. Over the weekend while in Vietnam getting his marching orders from his boss, The KGB Thug In Chief. Trump stated he believed Vladimir the Impaler when he was told that he, Vlad, did not meddle in the 2016 election while at the same time calling US Intelligence Chiefs "political hacks" and disbelieving them. You know, all those Obama era patriots who had the country in mind. Putin, much smarter than our Orange Creep In Chief, simple stated NYET, I never told him that. Trump then backtracked from his previous statement, well sort of, by saying how great HIS Intelligence chiefs are, not that other guys.

Trump then went on to the Philippines to honor another murderous tough guy. Now there no doubt Trump fantasizes at night about whacking journalists and his political opponents just like his heroes. And if he started his own Plumbers Unit to do so, there is not a doubt in my mind the Republican Congress would do nothing, Trumps base would go Fuck Yeah and most people still wouldnt vote.

Remember when the Dixie Chicks dissed George W Bush on furrin soil and bumpkins all over steamrolled CD's and banned them from radio and birdbrains sent the Chicks death threats? Oh yeah, me too. Where are those rubes now? Oh yeah, destroying $200 Keurig coffee makers because the company pulled ads off a child molester defenders TV show. Thats what the Trump base has left. Jackasses who would rather kick down the barn instead of solving the problem. I'd buy a Keurig, but sorry, I'm a Mountain Dew guy. Coffee tastes like muddy water to me. But Im sure if I liked Muddy Water it would be Keurig.

2)

Goddammit I want Joe Biden to run for President. I know he'll be 77 in 2020 but I dont care. Watching him today on Megyn Kelly's shitfest of a TV show, I fell in love with the man all over again. As Megyn shifted back to her Fox News self and hammered Biden on his views and his age and the fact that blue collar Trump voters still love the Grifter In Chief, Biden simply responded with, "They love me more". Yeah Joe, cuz you are one. Unlike a rich Inheritor In Chief who was born on 3rd base, Biden comes from Scranton and though yes, there are "Scrantonites" who will never leave their Cult Leader In Chief no matter what, there are plenty who will. Because Joe Biden speaks their language, without the vulgarity and name calling. Besdies, Biden isnt a fucking traitor.

3)

Mind Hunter on Netflix is one dark show. The story of two FBI agents who become the first profilers of serial killers, this show set in the 1970s reminds me so much of other David Fincher projects like Seven or The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. If you are a serial pessimist with an optimistic core like me, this show is a must. It's dark, depressing, uses real serial killers as a base, and turns an otherwise dreary night into something even drearier. It stars nobody of any note (other than the legendary Anna Torv, you know from Fringe? Never mind) but the whole 70's darkness and the Chevy Novas and the music all bring it together as these two FBI profilers descend into the abyss of depravity. I cannot wait for Season Two so maybe we'll at least know what the hell happens in PARK CITY, KANSAS. Watch it.

4)

Roy Moore (Fondler-Al) is exactly what the Republican Party is. He's a bible thumping phony intent on making white supremacy the religion of America. Despite his fondness for adolescent girls, 37% of so called Evangelicals in Alabama are MORE inclined to vote for his kiddie tickling ass than before the allegations were made. Read that again. 37% of white Christians who perceive their "values" as being superior to yours actually think allegations of child molestation are a positive? That is a frightening stat. Now whether they actually think that or its a fuck you to Yankee agitators or its a Alabama male saying what if I had been in that position would I have gone for it too I have no idea.

The fact remains these Republicans who are publicly denouncing Moore as a perv and are "bewildered" on what their party has become had better just step back and realize their party is a Frankenstein monster they helped create. Over the last 50 years, this party has appealed, on purpose, to the rednecks and the racists and the book burners and the snake handlers and the economic losers who refuse to look up at the real culprit and instead look down on fellow economic losers with a different color skin. Thus we have reached this point after 50 years. The Monster is rampaging the countryside and instead of villagers with torches trying to kill it, they are marching in lockstep behind it. We have reached a point where being accused of sexual assault, or making fun of the disabled, or being accused of child molestation does not matter as long as you have that R next to your name on a ballot.

Yeah, World, we have met the enemy and its us. Please come pick up the debris.

Veteran's Day!!


Thanks to all Vets for your service. Especially the ones like my father who defeated fascism and Nazism only to see it defended by the 45th President of the United States. I doubt if my old man found many "very fine people" trying to kill him and everyone else he served with.

Salute!

No Moore!


Pedophile Judge Roy Moore is about to speak at a Veterans Day breakfast someplace in Alabama where I'm sure gravel grits are part of the menu. The place is packed with child molesting Judge Moore advocates, 99.9% of them white, and full of men who I'm sure are just itchin to shoot a pedophile at some point in their lives, preferably a minority pedophile. But Judge Moore aint one of them child gropers cuz he's a God fearin judge and besides the girls were legal and at least it wasnt a boy and the Washington Post is full of Jews globalist reporters and he aint a Democrat who prosecuted Klansmen who killed 3 little girls maybe and he aint a Democrat so I'm voting for him so there.

Meanwhile, MSNBC is covering the speech, CNN is covering the speech, and Fox is talking about how tough The Groper In Chief will be on Russia.

9:07 am--Joy Reid asks a local Alabama Moore apologist who refers to "Weinberg" and the "House of Cards guy" and says that Alabamans dont like outside agitators. Wow does that sound familiar to us over 50.

9:12 am-- Roy Moore takes the stage to speak to his child molestation Senate advocates.

9:20 am-- Alabama Moore apologist speaks about how the Republicans are the party of McConnell and Pence and how much the Republicans win locally and talks about "urban Americans" not being able to overcome "rural Americans". Translation- well you know.

9:23 am-- Professional clown Jack Kingston defends Moore by talking about "Menendez" and "Clinton" as if that absolves child molestor Judge Roy Moore from any responsibility for hitting on a 14 year old girl. Kingston says the mother of the girl approved of Moore "dating" her. I have no idea why this clown is on.

9:32 am--Moore is speaking but nobody will tell us what he's saying as Im sure its all nonsense

9:33am-- Moore says The Washington Post endorsed his opponent and is desperate to derail his campaign. Moore claims its untrue that he molested dated a 14 year old and besides it was almost 40 years ago. Moore goes all in by denying he prodded 14 year old girls with alcoholic beverages. He's been investigated by tons of people (gee I wonder why) and everybody's out to git him.

9:35am-- Moore calls his victims accusers "grown women" and asks why they waited 40 years to much applause from his child molesting Senate advocates.

9:37am-- Moore keeps repeating the timing of his accusations as strange and calls it "fake News" which Billy Bob loves. Some guy with a bucket hat leaps to his feet.

Judge Roy Moore, a truly despicable man even without his penchant for groping 14 year old girls, is all in. The sad part is if he somehow is not forced out before December 12th, he, an accused child tickler, will defeat a man who put three murderers in jail for killing three little girls in a church for a Senate seat.

Oh and phonies like Ben Sasse who talk a good game, will denounce Moore and then gladly accept his votes for tax cuts for billionaire donors and taking health care away from the very children they profess to protect.

This a disgusting time to be an American. To paraphrase Bill Walton, I also apologize on behalf of the human race.

The Party Of Lincoln!!!


The Party of Lincoln. Yeah, ok. Though we all know had this bunch of Republicans, the base, existed back in 1860, Lincoln would have been called Lil Abe and accused of catering to Slave Lives Matter and being anti-business and disrespectful to rural rubes.

As I conjure up the ghost of America's 2nd best Republican President ever (right behind Bill Clinton) oh Hi Abe.....heres what your party stands for 157 years later.

1) Child molestation is ok. Who cares what little 14 year old temptresses say? Child molestation, when in the defense of tax cuts for the wealthy and to piss off libtards, is no vice. As our wonderful Statutory Rapist In Chief said, catering to the Solid South, if Ivanka wasnt his daughter he'd be dating her.

2) Going to hookers and wearing diapers while at the same time portraying yourself as a family values homophobe is just fine. Because going to brothels and wearing diapers in the defense of tax cuts for the wealthy and pissing off libtards, is no vice.

3) Assaulting journalists is just fine because anything negative about Republicans is the truth fake news.Because assault and battery in the defense of tax cuts for the donors and pissing off libtards , is no vice.

4) Treason isnt really treason if it allows you to win an election. Treason only applies to the opposition. Because committing treason in the defense of tax cuts to the wealthy and being able to openly be a bigot, is no vice.

5) Raiding the United States Treasury by your loyal lackeys is just good business. Creating a cabinet full of millionaires and billionaires who can now grab as much taxpayer cash as they can before resigning in the defense of tax cuts for themselves and making libtards mad is no vice.

6) Appointing a National Security Advisor who may have participated in a plot to kidnap a cleric and deliver him to a brutal dictator for $15 million is just more good business. Because buddying up to brutal dictators by committing crimes that would put you in prison for life in the defense of tax cuts for the wealthy and ticking off libs, is no vice.

7) The murder of children and innocents who go to school, a concert, a nightclub, church or work is the price of freedom. To deny a citizen his right to own a weapon of mass destruction is to deny freedom. First graders, concert goers, students, club attenders, church attendees and co workers ought to just arm themselves if they want to stay alive. Because dead first graders in the defense of tax cuts for the wealthiest and pissing off reasonable people gun grabbers is no vice.

8) Being a puppet to a foreign power as long as you win is to be expected. If the opposition had any brains, they would have aligned with a foreign government and tried to win also, Talk about lazy. Besides, its all the truth fake news. Because colluding with a foreign enemy to win an election and do the foreign enemies bidding in the defense of tax cuts for the rich and pissing off the libs is no vice.

9) Misogyny, xenophobia, homophobia, islamaphobia, white supremacy, and being an idiot is the litmus test for being a good Republican. Because being a moron and a bigot in the defense of tax cuts for the wealthy and making snowflakes angry is no vice.

There ya go Abe. Thats your party. A party full of John Wilkes Booths.

The Rockslide Begins!


Its all begun this week. When Bob Mueller indicted Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his flunky Rick Gates Monday the first rock fell off the Mount Trump. Now Manafort and Gates are just your run of the mill crooks, just like Spiro Agnew was in that pile of filth called the Nixon Administration. While the rest of the gang was colluding and hacking and lying and attacking opponents and catering to racists, Manafort, Gates and Agnew were just pocketing money. Good old fashioned bribery, money laundering and greed. But the rock fell and knocked another rock loose.

That meeting pictured above may be the biggest gathering of criminals since the meeting of the crime families in The Godfather. See that third guy from the left, John Dean, George Papadopolous, a coffee boy according to Don Trump. Well he, being 29 years old and all, didnt really want to take the fall for a bunch of old men with a prosecutor on their crooked asses. so he may have worn a wire. For about 90 days or so. What was recorded on that wire will come to be seen. But it may take down every single person in that meeting of miscreants. A perjuring elf named Jefferson, an orange racist named Don and the rest here on Papadopolous Island.

Sessions, truly a man who rose too high in life, apparently thinks lying under oath as many times as you wish is perfectly legal. Not sure what law school he went to, but Im sure its the one where they teach you the end justifies the means. As long as you are a Republican. Sessions is every bit the liar Trump is. Its what they have in common. The law doesnt apply to them. Regular rules dont apply to them. Sessions is without a doubt a bull in the law china shop. How he avoids disgrace is beyond me. That is until Alabama puts him back in office someplace.

The whole thing is House of Cards for real. This entire swamp is so disgusting all Mueller can do is drain it. There ya go Trumpers, the swamp you created is about to become the old swamp you all hated when you voted for your Svengali.

Meanwhile in other news, some brain challenged misfit up against the wall of life decided to mow down bicyclists on the West Side of New York. Thats what ISIS is good for. It enables other criminals with damaged minds to do its dirty work. Look, ISIS isnt religion based any more than the Klan is religious based. ISIS is a band of killers, rapists, and other criminals looking to commit their acts of misanthropy without consequences. At least until Obama got to them. Now they are on the run, mostly dead, yet still influencing other murderers without the means to travel. Whatever this assholes name is rented a small truck and made a conscious decision to run down innocents out for a ride before plowing into a school bus, a little bonus for him I guess. Goddam was this good news for The Exploiter In Chief! After ignoring the Las Vegas NRA hero who mowed down 8 times as many with a good old American machine gun because he didnt want to alienate his white gun nut base, The Racist In Chief jumped into action. Calling our justice system a "joke" and a "laughingstock" (which it will be if the Traitor In Chief gets away with any of this) The Orange Goop In Chief called for "swift" justice, called for the death penalty and even suggested sending whatshisname to Gitmo. Never has a POTUS been so wrong is such a short period of time. You may have tainted a jury pool, Genius In Chief, and called for an unconstitutional resolution all in one fucking sentence. Meanwhile at a Colorado Wal Mart a loser white guy shot and killed 3 more innocents. Not a word from the Race Baiter In Chief.

This morning in his daily tirade to divert attention from his impending demise and his obsession with women who stand up to him, and one in particular who kicked his miserable ass by 3 million votes, The Misogynist In Chief went back to the golden oldies, the knee slappers his base loves, the Stand by Your Man of insults, byy referring to Elizabeth Warren as Pocahontas, Hillary Clinton as the legendary Crooked Hillary and wrongly quoting Donna Brazile, or as he says "Donna B", about the "rigged" Democratic primaries (for fucks sakes, we Bernie Bros need to move on, I have). How dare Hillary help keep the party afloat financially. In fact I think Bernie did the same. I have no idea why Donna B has decided to go out of her way to start this bullshit Bernie Hillary crap over again. She had to have know that the Lowest Common Denominator In Chief would pounce. But whatever dude, it sets the agenda for every right wing propaganda radio and TV show for the next week.

Trump is off to Asia, hopefully to never return, and everyone is scared shitless he'll pull a Yuli Gurriel. The Guy At The End Of The Bar In Chief is ready for action. Running off to avoid Mueller and his imminent bye bye wont save this Creep In Chief's butt.

The Rockslide has started. Get out of the road.

Flipping Off Drumpf!


According to all sources, Monday is the day the dismantling of this corrupt, putrid South Vietnamese American administration will begin when Jared Kushner someone will be the first indicted by a grand jury led by Bob Mueller. All rock slides begin with a single rock and if the first rock happens to be a son in law campaign manager person who the Traitor in Chief will then deny knowing so be it.

Meanwhile over at Pravda state run Fox News the panic has set in. Sean Hannity has flipped his flat head by reaching for the stars and screaming uranium and going all Jan Brady by hollering Hillary Hillary Hillary. The morning show that helps get mush brains in pure mush form , Fox and Friends, has been setting the agenda for the Lazyass in Chief and setting off the racists internet trolls by running Tom Steyers impeachment ad.Last night on her weekly nervous breakdown, Robert Durst failure, Judge Jeanine Pirro went full rabid dog by calling for Hillary Hillary Hillary to be "locked up". For what? Who knows, I didnt listen because I already have two barking dogs driving me crazy.

Pravda State run Fox News is in full defense mode defending their Puppet In Chief by diverting attention from Trump's collusion with a foreign entity to win an election to a long debunked "story" about Hillary Hillary Hillary and Russian uranium. How ironic the side that bellows Fake News everytime something doesnt look good for the Cult Leader In Chief, now relies on Fake News to attempt to save his bloated orange ass.

This weekend is also rumored to be the weekend that the Republican thumb breakers try and slander Mueller into quitting. Firing Mueller, Trumps long held dream, to fire Mueller, would be political suicide, at least I think so, Trump IS a fucking zombie after all, thus the evil doers, the rest of the Republican robber barons who want tax cuts for billionaires, call for the one man standing between them and an oligarchy, Bob Mueller, to resign. Not a chance, assholes.

The call to action is clear. Its been almost a year since Trump lost the election yet somehow was installed as the Great Leader thanks to a bunch of cheese eaters, deer hunters and lake dwellers in three states. Oh yeah, that and an archaic system of elitism, a voter suppression effort, a Russian hacking scandal and plain old racist, sexist, homophobic shitheads who crawled out from under the rocks they live under with a bad case of economic anxiety. We mustnt fall asleep, become apathetic, give up in any way.

Like that hero pictured above. Give the finger 24/7 to this thieving administration of crooks, white supremacists, incompetent stooges and infiltrators bent on destroying you and me. Oh the state run TV addicts will never ever understand whats going on because brainwashing knows no cure, but the rest of us do.

The only thing worse than that bicycling hero for that motorcade is us. Or rain that ruins the Duffer In Chiefs golf game. Then they have to find him something to do. Like tweet about Broadway. Or getting into fights with war widows. Oh to hell with it. Just give the motherfucker the finger.
