This morning’s Twitter hits …

This moron is a bureau chief at Politico. She’s covering Bill DeBlasio in Iowa. As someone pointed out on Twitter, apparently she doesn’t know people can read this. By the way, numerous people pointed out that grocery stores in Iowa DO carry almond milk!

Iowahawk’s reply:

Joyful pony!

He bucked off the jockey at the gate; fortunately the jockey is not injured.

Can someone explain Justin Amash? I guess you can’t trust a Never Trumper. What is he trying to accomplish here? I used to think he was a good guy. Now I think he should go back to the private sector. Dem’s opinion about it seems to be that it’s great to see a Republican side with them, but he’s still an a**h***.

I’m glad to see someone talking about Social Security, but what do you think about what he is saying?

 

To end on a lighter note, this guy is somebody I follow (I can’t really tell you why). He is British and lives in Chicago with his American wife (he loves it here, btw.) They are in England; this is his first trip home in eight years. He loves to talk about the differences in British English and American English, and so …

Have a beautiful Sunday, everybody!

    Sally Goldenberg what an arrogant twat. I hope she breaks down on a long terrifying dirt road surrounded by nothing but flat barren land.

    And a woodchuck hits her in the head with a dense potato.

    I saw a tweet that compared de Blasio’s presidential announcement to Bodexpress’ Preakness start.

    Can someone explain Justin Amash?

    Someone tweeted (Maybe Scott Adams) that in Amash’s entire article there wasn’t a single direct quote from Barr’s conclusion.

    So in other words Amash is a bought and paid for shill for the Anti-Trump cabal. <<My opinion

    Love Crenshaw.

    Going to the original intent of Social Security.

    I like what he is saying. It’s a problem let’s focus on the reality not put paint on a dead hog and animating it hoping to get bacon.

    Funny Brit. Wait till she sees that she has to pay for a small glass of luke warm tap water.

      I saw that tweet about Amash, I think. I think his brain is addled. Too many weeks of that TDS. Reminds me of Jonah Goldberg.

      Laurence’s wife attended university in England, which is where they met, so I’m pretty sure she knows all about this stuff. He jokes around a lot. On this trip he wants to take her to places she has not been (like York), as well as to visit his family. He has a YouTube channel called Lost In The Pond.

        Nice. I’ve never been across the grand pond but my daughters and friends tell me their tales and Always find it interesting what we Americans take for granted.

        I once wished a very good friend of mine a Happy Mother’s day to his mum and he was like, ummm, it’s not Mother’s Day?

        Something I find interesting is that their news in the UK is as much filled with US news as it is UK news.

        When I worked in Scotland, I once asked my boss (in my Southern Georgia accent) for some “writin’ paper”. They all thought I was saying “Rotten Pepper”!
        I couldn’t understand anything much they said at first, but I learned quickly.

          I had a friend from Virginia who was telling me a story once about a latt bub. I finally stopped her and asked was a latt bub was. She was talking about a light bulb. We both had a laugh over that one.

      I’ve posted before of the…unease…of the city folk when they’re in an area more than 5 blocks from a Starbucks, they’re used to and mentally comfortable only in areas with a lot of coordinated right angles and ‘order’. They get lost left and right out here trying to find their ways.

      We have a city neighbor who has a place here and twice a year brings troops of Boy Scout and parents out here to the ‘wild’ for a ‘primitive camp out’. They cook name brand, organic, fair trade from sustainable foods over wood fires fueled by – gasp – raw untested wood grown on an actual farmland tree! They drink (filtered) well water and use either trees/brush (for the daring) or trucked-in porta-potties (placed by the trees or brush).

      When it’s time to leave they group up like a wagon train, the one in the lead who knows the way, and make 3 right turns and 1 left turn to navigate the 8 miles to civilization (the Interstate). We haven’t been asked to dress up in feathers, beads, warpaint and bib overalls to demonstrate native culture for the visitors but that might be next.

        You should dress up anyhow! What fun would that be? Worst that could happen is they throw some Perrier at ya!

        Our dogs always go over to see what is going on, and get free food, I’m sure. Without collars or other city-type ID they might be thought of as “wild”, and of concern to the millenial parents….

          I took my little Italian Greyhound to one of those chain pet stores where you can bring your dog into the store. She was still a puppy, maybe 3 or 4 pounds. A little boy was petting her and she opened her mouth and put his hand in it. She didn’t bite him, she didn’t apply pressure, no little needle teeth marks, he started screaming “The dog bit me!” (About 5 times in as many seconds 🙄) .

          His mom looked horrified and gave me a death glare while “rescuing” her son. He could not have been older than 5 and already terrified of life.

          Meanwhile I picked up my wee dog and walked out of the store never to return again.

          Idiots. Local woman and her son. He has probably been ordering decaf lattes with a spritz of cinnamon since he could talk from their local Starbucks.

          The owner makes sure the campers know that our overweight, overage liver-and-white border collie isn’t taken as a bloodthirsty coyote who just dined on the quivering corpse of a spring lamb and Daisy shows them her urbanity by accepting hot dog and hamburger offerings.

              My daughter’s BC used to clean up the high chair after every meal time! Kids are messy.

              • This is gross but our pure-bred German Shepherd Shanna used to come running whenever Josiah would start gagging as a young kid. He had a hyper-sensitive gag reflex & basically threw up his formula as an infant every time we dosed him with his heart meds post-op (lasix & aldactone). She might have actually lived a couple extra years because his meds helped her heart possibly more than they helped his. Whatever he threw up or spit out she was sure to clean up…as well as anything the other kids dropped. Shanna was almost like a second mother with the kids when they were young & she did have a litter of pups when our oldest was a toddler, so perhaps those maternal instincts remained on high alert…

    Dunno know where that dummy drove, but it sure was not Iowa.
    Have you ever driven along the edge of high hill in Iowa, looking down over a veritable patchwork quilt of colors, crops laid out in perfect squares, framed by the boundary trees of the hilltop?

    That image will never leave my memory, and it has been more than a couple decades since last there. Iowa is a beautiful state with beautiful people. That dummy has no idea what she missed. Remember drinking milk straight out of the cow, after evoking gales of laughter during your first try at milking? Nothing like the taste of that warm milk.
    What a dummy. Sad.
