  • “She consented!” … despite being handcuffed and in the back seat of their squad car.
  • I am so totally losing track of this whole “Russians in U.S. elections” thing. Russian-backed green-energy group goes bust because they bet on a Hillary win. Or something.
  • I’m not the only one losing track of foreign affairs. Did you know the U.S. government has 1000 troops in Niger? Neither did two big senators, including one of the Senate’s top warhawks.
  • Joe Manchin — who surely knows his career has never recovered from the Manchin-Toomey-Schumer-Gottlieb bill — says don’t campaign for me, Hillary.
  • It has become fashionable for actors not to learn their lines, sez disgruntled pro Bill Nighy.

    “We were still pretty fearful our home would be broken into, and we didn’t sleep there for a few days,” said the customer.”

    Were they afraid of the cops or the drug dealers?

    My dog Laddie rarely even notices most vehicles or people who come into my place, but he is doing his little “corgi dance” every time he hears the UPS or the trash pickup truck come. He actually seems to hear them coming long before they turn into the driveway. They are the only ones who always have a treat for him.

    Regarding that “green” energy company, “Hillary’s loss of the 2016 presidential election meant Podesta would not serve in the White House and thus was not in a position to advance the company’s prospects.” The government should not be in a position to advance or hinder any company’s prospects. They should not be interfering at all, and not subsidizing any energy companies. Those “green” energy companies live and die by subsidies, none of which should exist in the first place. If the company is feasible, then it will make it without the government propping it up with confiscated money.

    Quick question for the Russia Conspiracy Pecksniffs in the U.S.: If what a Russian does, in Russia, isn’t illegal in Russia, what jurisdiction do you have to do anything about it from the U.S.?

    My mother would take one look at the pillows and say, “You want it; you keep it clean.

    I suppose Hollywood actors are special people. Around here (little theater) people who don’t learn lines don’t get cast again.
