So lets do some History ?

What’s he talking about here?

We invited our friends and their kids to the lake with us this weekend. Took all the kids on their first tent camping weekend and broke out the new (to us) boat for its first official run…

And we had no idea that there were Trump rally/boat parades. We all knew we were headed to trump country (small lake that neighbors the ozarks), but would have maybe suggested something different.

I felt like a major ass bringing an immigrant from Asia and a black man to a Trump rally. We also had the people at the next campsite over spend the next morning giving us generally dirty looks - we then realized they must have been there for the parade and we’re not a fan of our “liberal” conversations the night before.

I typically don’t say “god bless”…but god bless Bob Woodward


#726

The width of the Adderall rail he just took to the head


#727

As I’ve grown older I’ve said these types of things too.


#728

“Bless their heart” is one I often pull out of the archives, usually to describe someone of questionable intelligence or motives.


#729

Yep, I use that too. Sometimes sincerely, sometimes not.

My grandma used to have a lot of interesting phrases.

Some her favorites were “Lands sakes” and “My Lands”.

She used to start most of her sentences with “Why,”

Her best friend’s name was Gloria Funk. I always thought that would be a great band name.

Trump is doubling down on the culture war, hoping it will win him the election. Today, he appointed a panel of non-historians to develop a patriotic history curriculum, and then they announced an investigation of Princeton because the president acknowledged that there are historical racist structures at the university. So, basically, acknowledging this sort of thing will get you investigated for having lied to the feds that you don’t discriminate. What bullshit.

So it’s woman from that Catholic cult. Maybe the Supreme Court will add exorcisms to its arsenal.


#733

Well the other one was too hispanicy.


#734

And she hadn’t sworn an actual blood oath to overturn Roe v Wade.

NYTimes:

Donald J. Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency. In his first year in the White House, he paid another $750.


#736

surprise, surprise.

NOT.


#737

70K for hair upkeep


#738

Let’s be fair about the 70k for hair upkeep.

If he can get whatever needs to be done to that monstrosity for only 70k a year, maybe he’s a better negotiator than I have been giving him credit for.


#739

Carpet or drapes? Or both?


#740

This won’t change any Trump voters’ minds, though.

AND he’s probably done this (not paid taxes) in a completely legal way, so the focus should be on the existing tax system that allows this. But, no, the focus will be on the ratings machine for media, which is Trump.

I’m amazed there are people dumb enough to think this is a “gotcha” moment.

His core followers look at taxation of any sort as evidence we are one step away from living in Nazi Germany. If anything, avoiding taxes makes him look better.
