And The Purpose?

So AOC had a town hall that included a woman indicating that people needed to eat babies to save the world. Upon some research it was determined: Yes, #EatTheBabies Was Stunt By Pro-Trump Trolls. This was actually a piece of satire by Jonathan Swift in the 18th century: A Modest Proposal.

This was probably supposed to cause a problem for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but she handled it gracefully and suggested people not attack the woman as it might be a mental health issue. I still can’t see how this could have been seen as a negative for AOC. Republicans are weird.

And on Twitter, Stormy Daniels (the real verified checkmark one) just volunteered to give Trump a blow job in the Oval Office if that’s what it takes to get him impeached. Even pointed out she wouldn’t need to open wide. Though she might need to squint hard. 😆

I love that gal. Definitely an American original.

If she did that, the next real President would owe her the Medal of Freedom, and the Nobel committee might want to consider the Peace Prize. 😈

Yes… I saw the tweets by AOC & those about her. The GOP/Trump & RWNJ’s in general all plagiarize. I doubt any of them is at all capable of creative or original thought.

Also agree about would do anything! 😆

They are both fighters those ladies!

Elizabeth Warren posted a tweet thread about FB/Zuckerberg dropping any pretense of being impartial that you may find interesting. I retweeted it:

Elizabeth Warren intends to use the Zuckerberg comments in campaign ads. If Facebook starts playing favorites in political coverage, it will justify whatever actions that result. Zuckerberg needs to hire a lobbyist to deal with the government – someone who won’t annoy powerful politicians 😉

Trumplethinskin has a real problem dealing with strong women.

Agree! (And I can hear my great old Boss of 40 yrs ago saying: “If two people always agree… One of them is necessary!” Though he did allow that on the proper occasion, it is an appropriate show of support. 😉 😀 He was also the main reason I began my Military “career”. And that is one long, strange, story!

Here… You could do with another laugh, at our expense (well & partly Trumpelstiltskin.) 😉

Just how weird is Scott Morrison really?

I’ve read it twice & can’t stop 🤣🤣

For something far more serious, when you’re in the mood… My good Twitter friend, Windthin has a long thread collecting the majority of important items to help understand the Trump Impeachment. I used ThreadReaderApp to collate the tweets.

Dammit! I have to remember to turn off Google’s Auto-Stupid on my mobile! Or, wait until I get home & use the PC (I just get bored on the bus)!

“necessary” –> “unnecessary”

7 Bryan { 10.09.19 at 8:45 pm }

Actually I read it as “isn’t necessary” because you are logical and “is necessary” isn’t. I also have a habit of not including the “-n’t” quite often, so I see it even if it isn’t actually there.

Maj./Cpt. (ret) David Lovell Oxford Hayward was an highly educated British/Australian Dual National Citizen. He tended to use very proper English. He was a Major in the British Royal Military and a Captain in the AU Military (who was… hmmm… semi-retired? He “consulted” (in Uniform with official ID & clearances, as required); on occasion (as required).🤔🙄

No, I’m not kidding. As I said… Long story that would involve the consumption of expensive high-proof alcoholic beverages and a “Cone of Silence” (one that works!) 😉 😀

As I was to discover… I was hired only partially for my IT/Engineering skills. He had other plans for me, requiring high-sec clearances where the technical skills were an added bonus. And my other skills learned from a young age, also. I got to see much of the World.

I understand. We were a bit more structured in my outfit, but a number of those with whom we cooperated had some unusual requirements, like stock car racing. They would be looking for language skills for jobs. We figured out the reason for the stock car requirement and all decided the job was a bit too insane. Getting intercepted by the Libyan Air Force was much less of a risk.

A lots of the things we did as kids that adults thought were stupid or dangerous turned out to be useful in later life. If we had known they probably wouldn’t have been any fun 😉
