Random thoughts Friday, Volume LXXXVIII

  • Ron, if you want to cosplay accurately, you should use trains like they did.
  • Trump’s idea that he can declassify documents just by thinking about it is obviously faulty.  It presupposes that Donald Trump thinks about things and doesn’t act purely out of impulse.  If Donald Trump ever actually thought about things, he wouldn’t be in the mess he’s in right now.
  • I enjoy watching D-II, D-III or HBCU football games on television more than high-profile BCS games.  Network coverage of big-college games is too much video-game-ish overload of visuals and noise.  Just show the damn game.
  • Letitia James’ lawsuit against Trump was gift-wrapped for her.  Trump gave it to her by signing documents–many of which were sworn/certified financial statements–that show how he lied.  Trump metaphorically signed his own guilty verdict.

  • James’ civil suit is the first domino.  “Follow the money” is the roadmap for the others.
  • Conservative white crybabies say they’re being targeted by corrupt law enforcement in an unfair justice system simply because of who they are.  Aaron Rogers or Tom Brady should take a knee to focus attention on the perceived injustice and see how that turns out.
  • Mahsa Amini will become Iran’s George Floyd.  She should have only been their Rose Parks, but the “morality police” killed her.
  • Trump said if we built the border wall, all illegal immigration would end.  Trump said that he built the border wall and it’s beautiful. Trump said his wall stopped illegal immigration.  Well, the wall’s still there, and now Republicans are complaining about illegal immigration.  So who’s lying?
  • Here’s an interesting question:  What property values did Trump use on the financial disclosure forms he filed when he was in the White House?  Did he inflate the values to make himself seem more successful? … cause that would be a felony for lying on a federal form.
  • Put abortion on the ballot in every state.  Every. Single.  State.  Make it a national referendum on a state-by-state basis.  Propose it as an amendment to each state’s constitution.  The Republicans will not do the people’s will, the citizenry must enshrine this right through the ballot box.
  • Oh, and while you’re in the voting booth protecting bodily autonomy, make sure to vote out the bastards who made you have to fight for your right to control your own body.
  • Clearly, Donald Trump lied about the size of his apartment.  He lies about the size of a lot of things:  his bank account, his waistline, his… hands.
  • We already know Trump inflated the value of his assets:  In 2013, he set the value of his brand at $4 billion, yet Forbes has consistently put Trump’s total net worth around $3 billion throughout the past decade.  
  • I’m laying money on Alina Habba, one of Trump’s future unpaid lawyers, running for Congress in 2024.  She’s learned the grift, and she wants to profit from it.  
  • BTW, when I said above “let’s see how it turns out” if Aaron Rogers or Tom Brady would take a knee to protest perceived injustice against conservative white people, I think we all know it would turn out that the media would be fawning over the commitment to a cause, and Sunday pregame shows would air a segment about the “political prisoners of war” being held in the DC jail.
  • Nothing better than open windows on a cool, crisp autumn evening.  
  • Farmstand apples are God’s gift to your palate.  No, they’re typically not all shiny and smooth like grocery store fruit, but they make up for the plain looks with fresher taste.  
  • My favorite “Team Trump Hitting Itself In Its Own Face” moments so far:  “Making Attorneys Get Attorneys” with every lawyer on his legal team eventually needing a lawyer themselves; the deafening silence of Mitch McConnell; and The Slip ‘n’ Slide of Trump excuses from “The FBI planted them” to “They’re all my presidential records” to now “They were looking for Hillary’s emails.”
  • Me, so many times this week, scratching my head wondering if I’m actually reading what I’m reading:
