    Every day it gets more and more likely that Farting Rudy will be practicing his art in a federal prison soon.  Does that raise questions about cruel and unusual punishments for those unfortunates incarcerated downwind of him?

    Sure… if they put Trump and the trumpies in the same wing. laugh

    September 18, 1793 – The first cornerstone of the United States Capitol is laid by George Washington.

    BLM headquarters moving back to D.C. from Colorado

    The controversial move, made in August 2020, was not well received by BLM employees, the department noted in a news release. It “failed to deliver promised jobs across the West and drove hundreds of people out of the agency,” Interior said. “Of the 328 positions moved out of Washington, D.C., only 41 of the affected people relocated, with three moving to Grand Junction.”

    Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., whose district includes Grand Junction, called the decision “partisan” and attacked the state’s Democratic senators, John Hickenlooper and Michael Bennet, for not “standing up” for the state.

    “Bennet and Hickenlooper combined couldn’t find the courage to place a hold on just one nominee” in order to keep the headquarters in Colorado.

    Maybe BoBo can find the courage to take on Michael Bennet next year and show him who’s boss?

      Please, don't put that idea out into the universe. She's crazy enough to take it as a command. 

    • Duke Cox says:

      I hope the Department of the Interior can regain much of the intellectual capital it lost as a result of the ill-advised fiasco. 

      This will wind up costing the taxpayer millions of dollars for no benefit. Cory Gardner might as well have wiped his ass with it.

      Sorrty, Bobo. As you surely must know: You can’t eat your sliders and barf ’em too! . . . 

      . . . No way was your buddy, Tina Peters, ever gonna’ be able to return and assist with Mesa election results, what with all them jackbooted BLM spooks and their black helicopters and Chinese surveillance drones sniffing around GJ.

    I continue to be amazed that the Orange King and his hyperbolic Horde are allowed to foment rebellion with impunity. I just read a Vanity Fair accounting of the vast sums of money the OD and his family have appropriated for themselves, particularly through extended Secret Service protection they neither deserve nor need.

    As we watch the truly unbelievable farce known as “Tina Peters Saves America”, I keep looking for all those “Eisenhower, Reagan, and Bush, Republicans to DO something about this. Have you no leaders among you? Are you waiting for…a clear signal of danger? 
    Al Qaeda or QAnon….is there a real difference?

    Empty-G has far too much time on her fascist hands. 

  7. MichaelBowman says:

    Rudy may have had a bigger crowd at Four Seasons Landscaping? A Toby Keith concert in Kabul? (It’s a possibility that nobody showed up because there was a conspiracy theory floating around that it’s a setup by the FBI).

    Any word on whether the Party of Trump voted to close its primary?

    The GOPers voted to let me keep ratfucking their primaries.

    Behind The Scenes. . .

    Answering all your important questions surrounding this week’s biggest unsolved mysteries:

    “How and why did Tina Peters finally decide now to risk her life to return to Mesa County from the protection of Der Meinkissenbunker?” . . .

    Probably overlooked this week by all the excitement generated here from Heidi Ganahl’s bigly Rosie’s Diner announcement . . .

    The race to become the first billionaire to build a (tax-deductible) private golf vacation resort on the moon took a giant leap forward this week . . .

    The crew members also had a call with the actor Tom Cruise. An online betting app also announced that Mr. Isaacman placed the first wagers from space.

    On Friday afternoon, the crew members rang a closing bell they brought to orbit for the New York Stock Exchange and later, they presented a 10-minute live update on YouTube as they zoomed around the planet.

    The commercial opening of space is to continue next month when Russia launches an actress and a film director to the International Space Station. They will be shooting scenes for a movie called “The Challenge.” It would be the first full-length fictional movie to be made in space.

    It might not be the last movie, either.

    In May 2020, Jim Bridenstine, then the administrator of NASA, confirmed that the space agency had talked with Mr. Cruise about shooting a film on the space station.

    . . . Wasn’t it Gandhi who once said:  “The greatness of a nation and its progress can be judged by the number of its wealthiest that it blasts into space.” ??
