  1. Joe Arpaio loses sheriff’s race in 2nd failed comeback bid https://apnews.com/7ee55d22b1ad5910bb42b64a78f714bf :-)
  2. 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. Source: https://www.bizjournals.com/philadelphia/news/2020/08/07/trump-yo-semite-shirts-national-museum-american.html
  3. The back story on how that ship and its cargo wound up in Beirut's port. What a clusterfuck. https://www.9news.com.au/world/beirut-explosion-former-sea-captain-delivered-explosives-by-ship/8a2c6207-de53-4ae7-8ceb-a1c4fa480df8
  4. 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:
  5. 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.
  6. Todays column by Heather Cox Richardson is entirely about the NRA. This one sentence really stands out: In 2015, the NRA had a surplus of almost $28 million. By 2018, it was running a $36 million deficit. Holy shit! Source: https://www.facebook.com/heathercoxrichardson/posts/2376404872503565
  7. 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.
  8. John Cleese offers another version of the interview:
  9. Yes, Colorado is building a wall, and we're making New Mexico pay for it!
  10. Well, this is the same idiot who visited Paradise, California after the fire, and pronounced it "Pleasure". https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/video/2018/nov/19/pleasure-what-a-name-trump-confused-over-fire-hit-town-paradise-video
  11. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/08/06/large-ammonium-nitrate-stores-australia-cause-localresidents/ Residents in and around Newcastle, Australia, have expressed fears about the town’s vast stockpile of ammonium nitrate – which could be almost four times bigger than the amount that exploded in Beirut.
  12. WaPo: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/nra-lapierre-ny-attorney-general/2020/08/06/8e389794-d794-11ea-930e-d88518c57dcc_story.html 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.
  13. He is just keeping his campaign promise to run the country like he ran his businesses!
  14. 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. Source: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/05/world/middleeast/beirut-explosion-ammonium-nitrate.html Ahhh,,,so the Russians conspired with the Lebanese courts to blow up Beirut.
  15. 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.

    Facebook, Twitter penalize Trump for posts containing coronavirus misinformation https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2020/08/05/trump-post-removed-facebook/

    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.

    Bwahahahaha!!! I love it! I'm going to start using that term. ;-)
  20. Jimmy Fallon (in Trump voice): "America's full of beauty from Yo-Semites National Park, to the mighty Miss-Pee-Pee River, to the Apple-Hatching Mountains, to New York's Viagra Falls."
  21. Lots of instances of "yo" from Sylvester Stallone in "Rocky"(1976).
