These ain’t no Harlem Globetrotters … hell they ain’t even the Pomona Polecats!!

Trump and his all stars: Flynn, Bannon, Conway, DeVos … 
and now Sessions. Sitting in last place … awe come on!!!

My Congresswoman from the 5th Congressional District, Cathy McMorris Rogers, needs to be sent to the minors. She plays ball for a self-styled Washington all-star team that seems to have no understanding of the rules and philosophy of the civic game of governance.

These particular all-stars are a collection of self-labeled  konservatives who still struggle with stick shifts and complicated words containing more than five letters.

These guys are hoping we won’t have noticed just how “all-star” they are now 6 weeks into their watch. They seem to want the country to stagger forward handicapped by a flat tire at the highest level of our leadership vehicle.

We are getting no correct-direction signals from any of these leaders. They have no skill and are not up to the task of leading, let alone even managing difficulties. Despite the lop-sided political advantage of our most recent national election and the temerity and caution of the opposition party, these supposedly wise Republican leaders and strategists are demonstrating an incredible lack of skill at managing the affairs of state.

As James T. Kirk goaded Khan, “You [Republicans] just … keep … missing … the target.”

If there is such as thing as a “normal situation” in this country I could say that “normally” when one party emerges victorious in an election, those who voted for the other party can take comfort in the general high quality, integrity and bi-partisan value of governing wisdom of those who did win.

Not this time.

These guys make it look like this country elected the Washington Generals instead of the Harlem Globetrotters. They can’t dribble, can’t shoot and certainly can’t play team-oriented ball.

They’re constantly out of bounds, palming the ball, committing foolish and egregious personal fouls and falling further and further behind on the scoreboard.

They try to play on only one end of the court where the bleachers are full of fanatics who want to change the way the game is played, want to change who can play and want to change what the public address system is allowed to broadcast.

If you look down their bench, you don’t see anyone riding the pines capable of substituting for the fumblers on the floor.

You do see some of those benchwarmers nursing dreams of future stardom by focusing on the bleachers when they should be focusing on the game itself.

You see flashes in the pan for whom the team’s financial backers have big plans and lots of money but also a limited self-serving priority of filling more bleachers rather than championship rings.

Not the players …

Not the coaches …

Not the owners …

… none of them show skill, wisdom or even a concern that the team remain viable, competitive and effective.

We’re not witnessing the creation of any kind of winning tradition here in the spirit of the Cavaliers,  Cubs, or Patriots.

Oh no!!

We’re looking at having to endure years of the 1960’s Mets when Casey Stengel asked, “Can’t anyone here play this game?


… whose undies are in a bunch about Sister Clinton and her emails but who have yet to acknowledge the following hypocritical comparative


I have a mental list of conservatives with whom I have acquaintance whose undies are in a bunch about Sister Clinton and her emails but who have yet to acknowledge the following hypocritical comparative. I guess it depends on whose ox gets gored, eh?


I don’t always trust the internet but when I do I get my absolute Trump truthiness from Macedonia.


Trump supporters easily fooled by absurdly fake news created by Macedonian teenagers

Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy has fueled the growth of phony “news” sites that are designed solely to clog up Trump fans’ Facebook feeds with pleasing information that they’ll want to eagerly share with their friends.

BuzzFeed has done some detective work and has discovered that more than 100 of these websites are being run by teenagers who live in the small town of Veles in the Eastern European country of Macedonia.

What’s even more amazing about these websites is that the people who run them tell BuzzFeed they don’t actually care about American politics — they just know that starting a pro-Trump website that spews out misinformation to Facebook and other social media is a goldmine right now.

I’ve suspected for a long time now that these two were in cahoots.



“WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Dropping a bombshell less than a week before the Presidential election, the F.B.I. Director James Comey revealed on Wednesday that the Bureau was investigating Hillary Clinton’s ties to Bill Clinton.

… We have reason to believe that the ties between these two individuals go back to the nineteen-seventies,” Comey said.


And speaking of wikileaks

More from The Prophet Pat Robertson preaching to the Silly Section Choir



More from the prophet Pat Robertson:

Televangelist Pat Robertson said that people who smoked marijuana, used cocaine or consumed alcohol had been enslaved by vegetables.

“God gave you and me as human beings authority, he gave us dominion over everything on this Earth,” the TV preacher explained on Monday’s 700 Club. “Over all the animals, all the snakes, all the birds, all the plants, all the vegetables.”

“Cocaine is the product of a vegetable, alcohol is the product of a vegetable, marijuana is a vegetable,” he continued. “And yet, people are enslaved to vegetables. And you were made in the image of God. God made you in his image to reign and rule with him. He gave you incredible authority.”

“Why would you become a slave to a vegetable? Why? Why would you do it.?

Robertson said that he had “seen a lot of stuff” in his lifetime so he understood that people had a lot of problems, “but God Almighty can deliver you from the bondage of your addiction.”

“Your slavery to vegetables, he can set you free,” he insisted. –

How come the smartest party (thinking they’re smarter than the President) does the dumbest things?


If they’re so damned smart how come ” They also blamed the president for failing to adequately warn them against supporting the measure.”???

Why you shouldn’t drive slowly in the left lane

The first ticket I ever got in Washington State was 1970 in Spokane fer driving in the left lane on a highway where I was the only vehicle within a mile.

But there’s the issue of locale … Ya ain’t lived dangerously until you’ve driven 75 mph in all lanes inside the Salt Lake city limits cause you had no choice.

Even at the Elk Snout Tavern, if ya say enough dumb stuff the other customers will stop drinkin and the bouncer will toss yer ass out the door.

Embattled Airway Heights Mayor Patrick Rushing resigns

The embattled mayor of Airway Heights has submitted his resignation following a public furor in July regarding comments he made about President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama that were considered racist.

“I find it difficult to continue due to my declining health issues,” Rushing is quoted as saying in the statement.

The council voted 4-0 to accept his resignation, effective Sept. 1. Two council members were absent.

Last month the council issued a vote of no confidence in Rushing’s leadership after his musings on Facebook and subsequent statements put the city in a most unflattering national spotlight.

Awe come on! Everybody is entitled to say what they really think at least once in their life. What’s that you say?

75+ more questionable posts by Airway Heights Mayor Patrick Rushing – The Inlander, America’s Best Read Urban Weekly

Well, as we all know, sometimes what you say about others tells everybody more about yourself than about the others.

This sort of post isn’t the only type of post Rushing has made on his Facebook page, to be clear. He also talks a lot about his fight with cancer, his grief over the loss of loved ones, his love for his family, and his pride in his military service. He also, in something many of us can relate to, talked a lot about being addicted to Candy Crush Saga.

Throughout his five-year tenure as Airway Heights mayor, Rushing’s Facebook page has regularly churned out (mostly reposted) images and comments that many might find, well, unbecoming of the Mayor’s Office.

Okay okay … I’ll try to stop showing off about how liberal I am and how offended I am when guys of my generation keep talking like it was the Junior High locker room.

But then ought we all leave the locker room when we have important stuff to share?

Good entry for the Silly Section.

“Sheriff Charles Pearson said the man dropped his gun and a bullet hit him in the arm. The sheriff did not identify the man or offer any other details about what happened.

‘I saw several of those gentlemen out there yesterday,’ Pearson said. ‘The way they were holding their weapons, with the fingers on the triggers, you can tell a couple of these gentlemen have no idea about weapons safety. It’s like the Clampetts have come to town,’ Sheriff Pearson
