    Trump is in exile.

    But he still stinks.

    Great God Almighty, 

    Trump stinks!

    Today is National Carrot Cake Day 

    • JohnInDenver says:

      Here's hoping I can go find a store or restaurant celebrating National Carrot Cake Day. 

      Surely it ought to be just like 7-11 stores celebrating their date with free Slurpees.  [In 2020, 7-11 cancelled due to COVID. We can't have nice things….]  Or the multiple corporations recognizing National Doughnut or Donut Day. Or stores celebrating National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day.

    Trump Organisation accuses Scottish politicians of pursuing 'personal agenda'

    On the eve of a parliamentary vote on whether ministers should go to court to investigate the finances behind Donald Trump's resorts, the Trump Org has accused politicians of pursuing "personal agendas" and neglecting their response to the pandemic.

      I see Eric Trump really knows how to charm those Scots. Obnoxious responses like that are going to only make them more determined to investigate away. Winning.

      • High Valley Lurker says:

        Its a winning issue for the SNP. Trump’s good buddy BoJo is currently persona-non-grata in Scotland, and is right now the SNP’s best recruiting poster. They are quite happy to put Trump right there next to him. Elections are coming, and the SNP is likely to gain even more seats from the Scot-Tories and Scot-Labour. This is just more good ammunition for them, and helps them towards their eventual goal of Scottish Independence.

        So, Eric Trump wants to play obnoxious politics in a place where he has no power, and where the party in power has every reason to smack him around hard like a pinata in the run-up to elections. And its a fight he didn’t even have to get into. Good luck with that.

    WHAT UP COLPOLS!  I was just strollin through memory lane.  My first comment on Pols seems to be Feb 19, 2007. I was just getting back to Denver and just came off my first campaign, Jay Fawcett for CD5. ANd it seems i was yelling about the same things then that are happening now.


    Stupid Republicans

    Since I am tired of getting banned on FB, I think I need to come back to more thought out posts instead of picking fights with toothless rednecks who carry guns and support the losers in the Confederate army.  I have been in Jail so much on FB, I now understand what it feels like to be a Black man!

    Anyway, can you be banned from Pols?  Asking for a friend?

    • MichaelBowman says:

      Welcome back WLJ!! We missed you heart

    • Diogenesdemar says:

      The Pols Banning Hall of Fame has had only one member ever that I can recall . . .

      . . . it shouldn’t be difficult to stay outta’ Alva’s hoosegow; “quixotic” is an easily avoidable word for most folks.

      • harrydoby says:

        Oh, I know the answer to that!  yevrahevets  Now, was it LaughingBoy or bjwilson83 that he outed?

        Great to have WLJ back too!

        • Diogenesdemar says:

          It wasn’t even the dread verbotten outing, or more surprisingly even having exhausted the lifetime word limit here, it was that epic battle of wits with the sniveling bj which reached it’s zenith with a speculation that bj might be a snack food.  (On the plus side, it did save much tedious scrolling, and an unfathomable number of electrons from a unnecessarily profligate demise.)

  6. Voyageur says:

    We'd love to have you back, Whiskey Lady.  Just don't "out" any polsters, an automatic ban.   And never, under any circumstances, support the designated hitter rule!

  7. Whiskey Lima Juliet says:

    @Diogenesdemar, @Voyaguer and Mike Bowman!  You are all still here!  Heeey!

  8. I feel like we got the Band back together!  I am going in hard this morning… stay tuned.
