Have a long drink of fine wine from the bottle of Klein.

…or have it all spill in your lap because this container can only hold Klein wine, not fine wine.

Klein wine, traditionally, is liquid on one side and solid on the other.

That’s a gas.

I think it’s best to hold off on any spelunking expeditions until after monsoon season.

How long before we see a youtube of skydivers jumping out into the top of a tornado funnel?

I wonder if we can borrow it for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade?

Not a good idea.

What if Baby Trump makes a doodie in his diaper during the parade?

And, what if it’s anchored to a float representing all of U.S. allies . . . you know, and the diaper doesn’t catch everything.

There doesn’t appear to be any limits to the Disruptor-in-Chief’s delusions of grandeur.

He says “I think they like me there” in the UK, despite the baby-Trump balloon, widespread protests, and the fact that the visit is billed as a ‘working visit’ rather than being given the usual honour of a full state visit. 

He claims personal credit and seeks praise for the allied nations’ commitments to NATO, when they have simply reaffirmed their previous and ongoing commitments and goals.  An organization which he derides one day and praises the next.

It is beyond his ability to see that world leaders have had no choice but to show a certain degree of ‘respect’ because of the office he holds, but that they have nothing but disdain for the man who holds it.  That he is being humoured, cajoled and managed.

If only we could convince him that he is well liked on the moon; I don’t expect there would be much difficultly in allocating a percentage of the international GDP to send him there.

Not to spoil the moon, how about St. Helena, or a penguin colony in Antarctica?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbM7cM2B-ug  -  (use earphones)

Spring air - -
Woven moon

Hmm ... not sure if this would be a nice thing to do to penguins, but then again, Trump’s ego would most likely interpret their vocalizations to be cheers which would keep him happy there.

Some people say that things come in threes
The price that we pay and yet nobody sees
A lesson in tact just as stark as a scar
How we interact is what says who we are
When seeking out strife we only get lost
It complicates life and it ain’t worth the cost
Approaching with care will lighten the load
Connections are rare on this long winding road
Some folks work hard and others will float
Everyone’s marred when we’re on the same boat
Those who are dim can say what they like
Watch where you swim coz the trident will strike
What would the point be with nothing to gain?
Parading a joint just to serve as the rain?
Know when to bellow and know where to hide
And remember to mellow the monster inside
Offer a hand when there’s someone in need
Inhabit the land without succumbing to greed
Accepting that those may not share your view
Reveals you suppose it’s not all about you
There’s no need to shame and it just goes to show
With no end to the game leaves us nowhere to go
Simply step back and take a good look around
Cease the attack when there’s peace to be found.

Obama was right: the elections weren’t rigged (i.e. there was no significant voter fraud or ballot stuffing / losing).
What happened was a disinformation campaign to sway the voters before they reached the polling station.
Trump continues to claim to this day that millions of illegals voted against him - which is an insane lie.

Of Course, it is a lie. They are not called “illegals”. They are called “undocumented”.

Sanitizing, filtering scandals through linguistics trickery is the stock-in-trade we have all come to expect, you to experience as the natural course of communications.

Take the Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz’s massive report on the Hillary Clinton email investigation. 

- Clinton was originally found to be “grossly negligent”  ( a crime); was changed to mere “extremely careless.” by the FBI lovebirds.
- FBI investigators also had concluded it was “reasonably likely” that foreign nations had read Clinton’s unsecured emails. But Comey intervened to mask such a likelihood by substituting the more neutral word “possible”
- The FBI hierarchy under Comey tried to hide the embarrassing details of Obama’s conduct. As a result, the FBI deleted Obama’s name from its report. In its place, the FBI inserted the laughable “another senior government official”
- According to Comey’s congressional testimony, Loretta Lynch, then the attorney general, ordered him not to use the supposedly incriminating noun “investigation” in connection with his investigation of the Clinton emails. Instead, she instructed Comey to use the benign-sounding “matter.”
———

Yes,  In the world of disinformation,  no body can compete with the Dems where Obama becomes an unnamed ‘government official,’ ‘investigation’ becomes a ‘matter,’ and ‘illegal’ becomes ‘improper.’  Just like it all depends on the meaning of the word “is” is.
