MARK ANTHONY IS A MAN OF MANY TALENTS One of which is being a lawyer, the other of which is talking to the dearly departed. He's on at 2pm and you can go see him tonight or tomorrow night in Arvada! Check here for more info.
IF YOU ARE THE SORT OF GUN PERSON TO DO THIS YOU SUCK. I am a staunch defender of the 2nd Amendment. I believe in gun rights. But guys like this dude, who walked into a Walmart strapped up with ammo and a rifle right after the El Paso shootings need to be punched in the face. Unlike other times when I jokingly say someone should be punched, I truly mean it this time. Dude, you are not helping and are making things much, much worse. A-hole. My friend Neal Boortz calls guys like this Ammosexuals.
IS HICK GONNA JUMP? To the Senate race, that is. The speculation is coming fast and furious, but this article says local Dem strategists say the current crop of primary contenders to take on Cory Gardner will not go quietly into the night. It might not matter, because I still believe Hick can Hoover up all the fundraising dollars and force them out of the game. We'll see.
THAT'S JUST JOE BEING JOE! This is my favorite Joe Biden gaffe to date (and that's saying something because he is an embarrassment of riches). What did he say? Just watch this. It's magic.
Best. Campaign. Ever.
A MAN PASSIONATE ABOUT IMMIGRANT RIGHTS IS KILLED BY AN IMMIGRANT And the family of Sean Buchanan doesn't want his death by a man who took refuge in a church to fight his deportation to become a reason to stoke anti-immigrant sentiment. Hats off to them for honoring the sort of man he was. I don't know if I'd feel so charitable.
ARE YOU GOING TO THE TARANTULA PARADE? I'm not, but there is one if you want to go. Although I'm not sure humans are invited. Check the horrifying story here.
I MAY HAVE TO VOTE FOR BERNIE NOW Because he's promised to release all the government data on UFO's if he gets elected. He finally found my price!
SORRY DELTA AIRLINES, YOU CAN'T PROTECT YOUR PASSENGERS That seems to be the message from the Department of Transportation about Delta's restrictions on pit bulls as service animals. They also said that Delta can't put a prohibition on service animals on flights over eight hours. Why is Delta doing all this? Because dogs keep biting people and crapping and peeing on the planes. Thanks, DOT!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SMOKEY BEAR! Smokey Bear is 75 years old today and doesn't look a day over 70. Only YOU can prevent forest fires!
AIN'T TO PROUD TO BEG? YOU BETTER HAVE A PERMIT At least in some sections of Sweden. A Swedish town has implemented a $26 begging fee for those who want to beg in certain lucrative begging markets. Needless to say some people are not happy about it, and beggars have found a way around it.
A CHEATER AT HOME IS A CHEATER IN THE BOARDROOM At least that's what one new study on the subject says. I believe it. If you can lie to your spouse so easily what's to prevent you from lying to everyone else?
AND NOW, WHAT MARIANNE WILLIAMSON'S INAUGURATION LOOKS LIKE And yes, this is satire but it's wickedly well done satire.
WHO DOESN'T LOVE WOODSTOCK? I do, and this story on the adorable Snoopy sidekick is perfect!
BROKEN WINDOWS AND NEW YORK CITY This is a GREAT editorial about the desertion of Rudy Giuliani's Broken Windows policies which cleaned up New York in the 1990's. Now that Bill DeBlasio is Mayor, things are starting to move in the wrong direction.
AND NOW, YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS This is like Nextdoor came to life.
JEFFREY EPSTEIN'S ACCUSER HAS NAMED NAMES And there are some familiar faces in the list. From the Daily Beast article:
Virginia Giuffre, who says that Epstein and Maxwell trafficked her to powerful people for erotic massages and sex, claimed in a 2016 depositionthat Maxwell directed her to have sex with former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, Britain’s Prince Andrew (whom she has accused before), wealthy financier Glenn Dubin, former senator George Mitchell, now-deceased MIT scientist Marvin Minsky, and modeling agent Jean-Luc Brunel, as well as “another prince,” a "foreign president," and the owner of a “large hotel chain” in France.
None of the men have been charged with a crime and these are simply accusations by Giuffre. Scumbags.
