  1. Trump's Yosemite gaffe brings towering sales to National Museum of American Jewish History

    The museum has had a camp-themed t-shirt reading “Yo Semite” — a play on Yosemite National Park — on sale since 2011, and it wasn’t typically a big seller. The museum usually sold around 100 of the shirts annually, Kreider said. In the last three days, it has sold about 1,500 shirts, she said. The shop website even crashed at one point due to a spike in traffic, she added.


  2. Just do a google search for "celebrities dyslexia" and you find a hell of a lot of successful people who made it on their own w/o inheriting Daddy's money, and w/o becoming grifters. A couple examples:

    I had been a member for over 20 years, but their shrill hatred & lies about any D candidate were getting old.
    When they backed Trump fairly early in the campaign, I finally had enough. 

    My old man was an NRA member. I was an NRA member up until they started bringing in nutjobs like Ted Nugent and Glenn Beck as featured speakers at the annual convention. That was when I had enough and quit. I don't recall what year that was.

    He would never, ever, admit to dyslexia. But I'd bet he's dyslexic anyway. It would explain a lot, including the "boil it down to a single slide" approach.

    I would put money on it.

    Back in 2016 Samantha Bee even did a show which compiled evidence that he was illiterate.  She interviewed a bunch of people who had worked with Trump, and video from a deposition where he couldn't read a document. Having already read an article from Tony Schwartz who mentioned he had never seen a book in any of Trump's offices, that made sense.

    I was quite surprised when it later became apparent that Trump could actually use a teleprompter. Then it later occurred to me that dyslexia could explain everything.

    The group’s bitter internal battle burst into public view in April 2019 at the NRA’s annual convention in Indianapolis, when then-NRA President Oliver North was forced out by LaPierre after pressing for an internal financial review.

    So apparently, Oliver North was the good guy in that fight. Let that sink in.

  6. According to the Lebanese government, about 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate fertilizer was stored in a warehouse on the Beirut waterfront and caught fire, later exploding. The fertilizer arrived in the city more than six years ago aboard a Russian-owned cargo ship that made an unscheduled stop in the city. Lebanese port officials said they made several requests to the courts to have the stockpile removed, but got no response.

    Ahhh,,,so the Russians conspired with the Lebanese courts to blow up Beirut.

    Hi Robert,

    As I have said before, Biden should not even show up.

    Since we now have video proof ( the Axios interview by Jonathon Swan ) of how Trumps responds to questions, IMO it would be foolish for Biden to show up.  Or maybe he could just give his two minutes for each question to Trump.

    I will say one than about the Axios interview, it sure was entertaining.

    Biden should just volunteer to give up his debate time to let the networks replay the Axios interview. Trump is vain enough, and stupid enough, that he would think it was a great idea.

    The Sturgis MC rally? Are you freaking kidding me? State leadership could easily stop it from happening, or at least reduce it to a much smaller underground event. They can not possibly make enough money to be worth the enormous risk to the locals and the visitors who will go home and become spreaders.

    I would suggest if it is going to be held, then these rules could dramatically decrease the infection rate:

    - Mandatory mask usage.

    - No customers allowed inside businesses. All customers must be served outdoors.

    Further related question - why would a secret military operation announce its plans publicly?  That's the opposite of OPSEC [sorry, the Qcumbers love love love their military sounding acronyms, I mean "operational security"].

    Bwahahahaha!!! I love it! I'm going to start using that term. ;-)
