Too Cool...



An anguished question from a Trump supporter: "Why do liberals think Trump supporters are stupid?"

From my Best Friend Gay...

"Found this on another post. Sadly I have no idea who to give credit to for this very clear explanation. "

An anguished question from a Trump supporter: "Why do liberals think Trump supporters are stupid?"

The serious answer: Here’s what we really think about Trump supporters - the rich, the poor, the malignant and the innocently well-meaning, the ones who think and the ones who don't...

That when you saw a man who had owned a fraudulent University, intent on scamming poor people, you thought "Fine."

That when you saw a man who had made it his business practice to stiff his creditors, you said, "Okay."

That when you heard him proudly brag about his own history of sexual abuse, you said, "No problem."

That when he made up stories about seeing muslim-Americans in the thousands cheering the destruction of the World Trade Center, you said, "Not an issue."

That when you saw him brag that he could shoot a man on Fifth Avenue and you wouldn't care, you chirped, "He sure knows me."

That when you heard him illustrate his own character by telling that cute story about the elderly guest bleeding on the floor at his country club, the story about how he turned his back and how it was all an imposition on him, you said, "That's cool!"

That when you saw him mock the disabled, you thought it was the funniest thing you ever saw.

That when you heard him brag that he doesn't read books, you said, "Well, who has time?"

That when the Central Park Five were compensated as innocent men convicted of a crime they didn't commit, and he angrily said that they should still be in prison, you said, "That makes sense."

That when you heard him tell his supporters to beat up protesters and that he would hire attorneys, you thought, "Yes!"

That when you heard him tell one rally to confiscate a man's coat before throwing him out into the freezing cold, you said, "What a great guy!"

That you have watched the parade of neo-Nazis and white supremacists with whom he curries favor, while refusing to condemn outright Nazis, and you have said, "Thumbs up!"

That you hear him unable to talk to foreign dignitaries without insulting their countries and demanding that they praise his electoral win, you said, "That's the way I want my President to be."

That you have watched him remove expertise from all layers of government in favor of people who make money off of eliminating protections in the industries they're supposed to be regulating and you have said, "What a genius!"

That you have heard him continue to profit from his businesses, in part by leveraging his position as President, to the point of overcharging the Secret Service for space in the properties he owns, and you have said, "That's smart!"

That you have heard him say that it was difficult to help Puerto Rico because it was the middle of water and you have said, "That makes sense."

That you have seen him start fights with every country from Canada to New Zealand while praising Russia and quote, "falling in love" with the dictator of North Korea, and you have said, "That's statesmanship!"

That Trump separated children from their families and put them in cages, managed to lose track of 1500 kids. has opened a tent city incarceration camp in the desert in Texas - he explains that they’re just “animals” - and you say, “well, ok then.”

That you have witnessed all the thousand and one other manifestations of corruption and low moral character and outright animalistic rudeness and contempt for you, the working American voter, and you still show up grinning and wearing your MAGA hats and threatening to beat up anybody who says otherwise.

What you don't get, Trump supporters in 2018, is that succumbing to frustration and thinking of you as stupid may be wrong and unhelpful, but it's also...hear me...charitable.

Because if you're NOT stupid, we must turn to other explanations, and most of them are less flattering."


TUNESMITH TUESDAY - "Try a Little Tenderness" - The Comittments

Try a Little Tenderness

Oh she may be weary
And young girls they do get wearied
Wearing that same old shaggy dress
But when she gets weary
Try a little tenderness, (Fandango)

You know she's waiting; just anticipating
The things that she' never never never never possesses, yeah
But while she's there waiting, without them
Try just a little bit of tenderness

That's all you got to do (this is for you)

It's not just sentimental no no
She has her grief and her care
But soft words they are spoke so gentle
It makes it easier, easier to bear

You won't regret it, no no
Young girls; they never forget it
Love is their only happiness
But it is so- so easy
All you got to do is try
Try a little tenderness

Squeeze her, don't you tease her, never leave her
You've got to, got to, got to try a little tenderness
(Ad lib to end)

Now that's an interesting question...

It's a matter of perspective


While on safari in deepest, darkest Africa, Bwana Bob was captured by a tribe of hostile natives. Through a translator, the Chief told Bwana Bob that he had trespassed on sacred tribal land and would be put to death, but that the manner of his death would be determined by a statement he would have to make. If the statement were true, he would be buried alive, and if the statement were false, he would be fed to the lions. 

Bwana Bob thought for a few moments, then made his statement.

The Chief smiled and let him go.

What did Bwana Bob say?

Give up?
Drag your cursor between the asterisks for the answer


The statement was, “I will be fed to the lions.”

If the Chief threw him at lions, Bwana Bob’s statement would be true and he would have to be buried alive. However, if they buried him alive, the statement would be false. Thus, the Chief had no choice left but to release him



Memorial Day - it's more than just a three-day weekend and picnics

For many Americans, Memorial Day signifies a three-day weekend, and is the unofficial beginning of Summer. It's the perfect time for picnics, a day at the beach or backyard barbecues, and millions of Americans hit the road to spend time with family and friends. However, the holiday represents so much more than any of those celebrations.

A tradition that began during the Civil War, Memorial Day was, in its earliest form, the simple practice of honoring fallen soldiers by decorating their grave sites. During the years following the Civil War, the country struggled to come together as a whole again and repair itself from four years of death and destruction, and as a way to start the healing process and honor those who had lost their lives, several southern states began to observe and publicize Memorial Day celebrations. Northern states soon followed suit with their own tradition, Decoration Day, and over the next 100 years, Memorial Day was celebrated nationwide unofficially until the last Monday in May was declared a federal holiday in 1971.

Rare "Blue Jets" in the upper atmosphere

Lightning is beautiful and sprites delightful, but pulsating blue jets are even more fascinating when zapping out the top of an epic storm. Astronaut Andreas Mogensen captured the first-ever video of blue jets as seen from the International Space Station.

Red sprites and blue jets are upper atmospheric optical phenomena associated with thunderstorms that have only recently been documented by using low light level television technology. These phenomena are collectively called Transient Luminous Events (TLE's).

Blue jets differ from sprites in that they project from the top of the cumulonimbus above a thunderstorm, typically in a narrow cone, to the lowest levels of the ionosphere 40 to 50 km (25 to 30 miles) above the earth. In addition, whereas red sprites tend to be associated with significant lightning strikes, blue jets do not appear to be directly triggered by lightning (they do, however, appear to relate to strong hail activity in thunderstorms). They are also brighter than sprites and, as implied by their name, are blue in color. The color is believed to be due to a set of blue and near-ultraviolet emission lines from neutral and ionized molecular nitrogen.
