    Gardner getting some additional notice — from Business Insider.

    But Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) was reluctant to call for accountability, including when it came to a Colorado-based plant Gardner received donations from, Business Insider reports. …

    Throughout his Senate career, Gardner has been one of the top recipients of donations from JBS; He has received $24,000 from the company over the years. This election cycle, he received the second most money from JBS of any senator, as well as the second largest contribution total from the meatpacking industry as a whole

    And here’s another Happy Friday Minute of Sweet Schadenfreude: 

    $rump getting booed while “paying his respects” to Justice Ginsburg. The crowd is booing, yelling, “Vote him out!” And “Honor her wish!”( her last request was to allow the next President to replace her on the court. )

    Tune: Waylon Jennings, “Good Hearted Woman.”


    He’s a vile-hearted Fascist spreading hate through this land.

    He stole his first election, he wants the rest of them banned.

    He sold out our country and kissed Putin on his foul rump.

    This vile-hearted fascist that we know as the Donald Trump.


    He packed our courts with stooges who promised to do his will.

    He took away our health care because he’s Big Pharma’s Big Shill.

    He wrecked the Post Office to make sure that his fascism stays.

    This vile-hearted fascist who we’ll vote out in 39 days.

    Yay, Waylon..

    One of my favorites is " Mamas, don't  let your babies grow up to be MAGAts".

    If Trump decides to go with Barbara Lagoa instead of the front runner, Amy Coney Barrett, we will get to relive the Elian Gonzalez drama from 20 years ago. (Or as George W. Bush liked to call him, Alien Gonzalez.)

    For those who think it's virtually impossible for a police officer to get arrested – and for everyone else as well – I give you this piece of shit. Nazi-lookin' dudebro shot himself in the leg (presumably unintentionally, but who can say with Nazi-lookin' clowns like this) and claimed he was "ambushed." He's in custody, charged with criminal mischief and malfeasance in office.
