Funny, but only because he is so, so tone deaf.

He really is a Sociopath isn’t he? He hasn’t a clue about how and why what he says and does affects the lives of real people.

Dog help us all. We have to get rid of this menace.

I wonder what took the UN rights chief so long…

We’re all having to adjust to the idea that the President of the United States is a sociopath.

I never believed that people come to my shows, or rock shows, to be told anything. But I do believe that they come to be reminded of things. To be reminded of who they are, at their most joyous, at their deepest, when life feels full. It’s a good place to get in touch with your heart and your spirit. To be amongst the crowd. And to be reminded of who we are and who we can be collectively. Music does those things pretty well sometimes, particularly these days, when some reminding of who we are and who we can be isn’t such a bad thing.

That weekend of the March for Our Lives, we saw those young people in Washington, and citizens all around the world, remind us of what faith in America and real faith in American democracy looks and feels like. It was just encouraging to see all those people out on the street and all that righteous passion in the service of something good. And to see that passion was alive and well and still there at the center of the beating heart of our country.

It was a good day, and a necessary day, because we are seeing things right now on our American borders that are so shockingly and disgracefully inhumane and un-American that it is simply enraging. And we have heard people in high position in the American government blaspheme in the name of God and country that it is a moral thing to assault the children amongst us. May God save our souls.

There’s the beautiful quote by Dr. King that says the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice. Now, there have been many, many days of recent when you could certainly have an argument over that. But I’ve lived long enough to see that in action and to put some faith in it. But I’ve also lived long enough to know, that arc doesn’t bend on its own. It needs all of us leaning on it, nudging it in the right direction, day after day. You’ve gotta keep, keep leaning. I think it’s important to believe in those words, and to carry yourself, and to act accordingly.

And, with that, Springsteen sang “The Ghost of Tom Joad.” Here he is performing it at home:

SRSLY?: An Executive order directed specifically at barring members of the Legislative Branch from investigating government-run (or run at the behest of the government: paid with our tax dollars) facilities? And with restrictions on the contacts they can have?

These sort of restrictions might (just might) be conceivable if there were serious national-security issues, but then again, this is the Trump Regime: embarrassing the “President” or his Admin probably IS considered a threat to the country. Or lese-majeste, or something equally heinous.

This might well be the silliest joke I have ever heard:

A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that her name is Patty Whack.

“Miss Whack, I’d like to get a $30,000 loan to take a holiday.”

Patty looks at the frog in disbelief and asks his name. The frog says his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it’s okay, he knows the bank manager.

Patty explains that he will need to secure the loan with some collateral.

The frog says, “Sure. I have this,” and produces a tiny porcelain elephant, about an inch tall, bright pink and perfectly formed.

Very confused, Patty explains that she’ll have to consult with the bank manager and disappears into a back office.

She finds the manager and says, “There’s a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000, and he wants to use this as collateral.” She holds up the tiny pink elephant. “I mean, what in the world is this?”

(You’re gonna love this.)

The bank manager looks back at her and says, “It’s a knickknack, Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man’s a Rolling Stone.”

(You sang it, didn’t you? Yeah, I know you did.)

However, you will notice that neither Minneapolis nor St. Paul has been in the news recently with a terrorist attack, and here is why: We take them in and treat them fairly.

Texas Monthly just published an alarming account of a man hired as a case manager in Brownsville, Texas at the Southwest Key Casa Padre shelter for unaccompanied immigrant children.

The caseworker, Ernesto Padron, who worked in a facility that currently houses nearly 1,500 boys, ages ten through seventeen, was a former Border Patrol agent who was forced to resign in 2010 from that agency after he was arrested on child pornography charges. As part of his job at the shelter, he had direct, and often unsupervised, access to unaccompanied immigrant minors.

His arrest on charges of possession of illicit porn featuring under-aged children became moot after a years-long court backlog led to the case being dismissed because the statute of limitations had expired.

A spokesperson for Southwest Key, a rare nonprofit organization operating this type of facility, told Texas Monthly that Padron was suspended immediately after the organization discovered the expired charges against him.

His suspension became permanent when Southwest Key laid him off, along with nearly a thousand other people, after the number of unaccompanied minors crossing the border dropped significantly last year, a trend that reduced the number of staff needed in the nonprofit’s shelters.

Well, if I were on twitter, I would be sure to tell Jim that this shit is definitely no way of funny whatsoever, since it a dead certainty that RW media will be picking this up and running desperately with it the same way they did with Samantha Bee (Peter Fonda’s miles-lower profile and relevance notwithstanding).

It’s all bullshit of course, but drearily predictable: when faced with furious public criticism of their Dear Leader, or any of his policies, the RWNM will instantly jump on the first “objectionable” statement they can from virtually any recognizable “name” they can tar as “The Left”, and immediately crank up the Outrage Horn to max to “whattabout” and pearl-clutch to try to deflect attention from the very real abuses of those in power.

Off-topic embarrassment.

At our dine-out tonight, both my wife and I ordered steak, while most people had various sandwiches, and the woman next to us had just a glass of wine and salad.

When the waitress came round to collect for everyone’s checks, she collected everyone’s credit cards. (We’ve eaten there before and she knows we always pay cash.)

As soon as the woman with the wine and salad had her card back she said good-night to everyone. When it became apparent the waitress had not brought a check to my wife and me, I asked about it so we could pay. “Oh, the lady paid for you.”

She apparently just snuck it in on her credit card and we didn’t know she did it.

We will have to do something for her next month.

“I’m more elite than the elite” is basically, “I won the lottery and you will, too, so don’t give up hope.”

Yep, go give your money to a government agency for the infinitely small chance that you can have a good life and not have to worry about health care costs wiping you out and taking your house away.

There’s already too many people who’s only retirement plan is to win the lottery.

With the Wyoming Republican Primary two months away, the six candidates for governor were at a forum laying out their positions in Torrington.

Wyoming Republican candidates for governor out positions at Torrington forum (goes to the Scottsbluff, Nebr. Star-Herald, more at the link):

TORRINGTON — With the primary election two months away, the Goshen County Republicans hosted a gubernatorial forum at the Eastern Wyoming College Fine Arts Auditorium June 19.

All six Republican candidates attended: former independent nominee and surgeon Dr. Taylor Haynes, Wyoming state treasurer Mark Gordon, Goshen County native and attorney Harriet Hageman, and businessmen Foster Friess, Bill Dahlin and Sam Galeotos.

Herb Doby, the vice-chairman of the Goshen County Republicans, said the group likes to hold forums for competitive elections. Each time the group holds a forum, someone on the committee — Doby this time — contacts all the candidates and invites them to the forum.

“It’s not required, it’s purely voluntary,” he said. “Most of them want to come, because Wyoming is a big state and they do a lot of traveling and this is an opportunity to come and speak their peace [sic].”

Competitive state as in the competition is between Republicans. The Democratic Party here is practically non-existent, and not covered by this state’s media.

I looked at the map of ICE facilities that was posted this week and there is one in St. Paul literally across the street from the building where I work. It’s a county jail. I looked out the window a couple times today to see if anyone was out protesting. Nope.

…Oh great. It’s 11:00pm on a weekday so someone decided that now’s the time to go shoot off a bunch of fireworks. I wish they were still illegal in MN.

Not as crappy as offering any support to such a heinous agency and its policies. The landlord sees this going on and doesn’t speak out or terminate the lease. That makes him an enabler.

The only thing for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.

Moreover, I imagine since this is a government lease, it is a public record, therefore not doxxing.

You can’t just terminate a lease, that’s the whole reason for signing a lease to begin with. And somehow, I am willing to bet there is only a business address on any public records not his damn home address.
