Cheers Until day 7. Another remarkable testimony tomorrow at the House subcommittee hearing on January 6. Many of Trump’s inner and outer circles should spend years in prison plotting to overthrow the government and establish a lasting Republican dictatorship. But one person who deserves to spend the rest of his life in a cell is Donald J. Trump. He planned it, he carried it out, he laughed when he saw people injured and killed on TV, he did nothing about it for hours, and after the smoke cleared he extended his big lie and his Shelter among rich princes. Florida Pleasure Palace, a scene filled with Sikos that Fellini never dreamed of. Then they Argued and shouted at the witness for molestation. Among the hot turmoil that helped him in the plot:
Committee member Jamie Raskin said as he wrapped up his closing statement: “There will be a deep moment of reckoning for our next hearing. USA“Great. Just make sure you know who’s in front of the math line.
Cheers To put NASA on notice. Now look here, you are ruthless of government science Florida And Texas And elsewhere you are doing your space content. I’ve had just enough about all this foot-pulling. I ask to see new photos from the James Webb Space Telescope that helped me pay my tax dollars or I’m calling the appropriate authorities. I’ll give you three: one… two… thirty
Oh. Pretty. Well, thanks, you can go back to what you were doing. We will handle the analysis here. So far I have seen twelve nickels, a box of hair spray and a box of Fig Newton. I knew we weren’t alone.
JEERS To small politicians. (Sorry, is that unnecessary?) Fifty years ago today, the late George McGovern became the Democratic presidential candidate at a convention. Miami Beach. Some secret Nixon tapes were released some time ago, in which # 37 was described as a rare breed of lunatic. Tragic winner:
Several hours after the election, after 1:00 p.m.When the vote was announced, Henry Kissinger called Nixon to congratulate him on his landslide victory: “This is an extraordinary tribute,” he said. […] Then they go after the loser, George McGovern:
Nixon: “You know, this fellow was, after all, a magnet. Did you see his statement?” […] Nixon says speaker Ray Price urged him to send a message to McGovern that he hopes to work with him and his supporters for peace in the years to come.
Nixon: “And I just said no, I’m not going to send him that kind of wire.”
I will say this. Dick knew for sure how to keep his name.
P.S. They say that only good young people die. Henry Kissinger is currently 329 years old.

Cheers To portable suds. On this most important date in 1568, a sudserrific scientist Success was created:
Dr. Alexander Novell, dean of St. Paul’s, suddenly discovered the benefits of bottled beer. According to Pint’s history, Dean drew some beer from a bottle in 1568 for a fishing expedition. One of his bottles was lost in the grass and, “when he probably came back a few days later, it was found. Still perfectly drinkable.”
The news of bottled beer was hailed as a great success by the clergy. Try putting a box under your robe during the morning prayer and you will see why.
Cheers To take matters into their own hands. Here is today’s lesson in red states vs blue states. The leaders of the Red State want their citizens to suffer under a far-right Christian thugocracy, where Jesus is your vaccine and if you are poor and you get sick, your best option is to die early. Blue state leaders want their citizens to live longer, healthier lives with access to affordable healthcare, and if they occasionally have to go around a qualified federal government to do so, so be it. Good on you California And your whiprapper in the governor’s palace:
California Governor Gavin Newsome announced that the state would once again “take matters into its own hands” with plans to make its own insulin.
The $ 100 million investment announced last week includes a deal with a California-based manufacturer and the development of low-cost insulin products. […]
The new effort reflects the efforts of the nonprofit group Civica RX, which has announced that it will manufacture three different insulin products by 2024 and not more than $ 30 per bottle and more for a box of five pre-filled pen cartridges. More than 55. […]On average, diabetics use two to three vials per month, and a variety of insulin shots are available.
Refusing to go out, when he heard the news, Florida Governor Ron Desantis immediately vowed to help diabetics. Florida With low-cost bone saws and white cans. Also, of course, a free Bible.
Ten years ago at C&J: July 13, 2012
JEERS Governorate malfunction. Last Saturday, Maine Governor Paul LePage embarrassed our state by calling IRS “New Gestapo.” Instead of apologizing, he doubled down on a journalist yesterday, saying, yes, he admits. IRS Is Moved in the direction of killing people. So, as a concerned citizen, I called my local IRS Office received this recording this morning:
“Hello! This is a great day in the internal freight service. For tax form assistance, press 1. For payment or refund information, press 2. For general questions, press 3. Or stay in line and the next available representative will kill you. … Er, Help You, Help You! “
See? No worries. Stupid governor.
And just another
Cheers For the echo of the sweet sound of defeat. I imagine the moment Mitt Romney decided that “it would be a good idea to fight this.”USA Beautiful at a 2012 campaign stop “was the moment when the Obama team knew they were using it to create a killer TV commercial that linked his patriotism to his record as a job killer.” Released this week ten years ago, it was guaranteed to be talked about for decades. In fact, it was the only campaign ad of 2012 that produced a rare public display of love. For its technical features, Especially audio compositions. For the old days, crank up your speakers and annoy your neighbors:
Even for the old days: Obama 332, Romney 206. Oh, beautiful.
Have a happy day. The floor is open … what are you joking about today?
