For months we’re been hearing that the right-wing media giant will drown us in propaganda. (I claim it will only happen if they don[t have to pay any extra.) I tried watching North Coast News but kept falling asleep, so I’m asking for help from those of you who do watch it to give us a head’s up if you see Boris Epshteyn or Sebastian Gorka delivering a commentary. Note that on the graphic they could name Eureka but couldn’t find it on the map. Read about it here.
Which I included because Belgium in one of my favorite places. This is a remarkably ignorant article but trust me, you will get LOTS of bang for your buck there. Read about it HERE.
Our Fake President is so desperate for MORE attention he has to make things up, like a child. Read about it HERE.
Take from the poor, give to the rich. That’s Don the Con’s idea of a tax cut. The summary from the WAPO is HERE.
The constant onslaught of idiocy from the White House is so depressing I don’t blame people who have stopped paying attention. Just remember to wake up in time to vote this year.
ONE TURKEY DOWN- David Marcus has finally quit the PD’s office and slunk off into the sunset and we the voters have yet to receive a decent explanation for his hiring in the first place. WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE??? Who wanted him hired?? One of the Supes? In the absence of any other explanation, I’ll take that one. Remember, elections are coming.
NIGHT MARKETS- have been a big thing in Asia for years and I’ve wondered why we don’t do them here. Finally, they had one in Arcata’s Creamery District and I’m wondering how it went. Wouldn’t more people come to the Farmers’ Markets if they were in the evening? I think so.
COSTCO- I just called in a prescription to COSTCO and was delighted to find that their automated system now keeps track of your prescriptions and offers refills for the ones that are coming due. At least ONE thing that ‘s improved.
THANKSGIVING- probably my least favorite Holiday. It’s too darn close to Christmas. This year, for the first time, I ordered the whole meal from Murphy’s and I have to say they did a good job. Thank God I had a guest from the Bay Area who willingly took the leftover turkey home with him. I’m not real big on turkey. For sandwiches, I prefer chicken, which you can get at WINCO. My friend drove off talking about turkey soup and turkey enchiladas. He can have them. Remember the hot turkey sandwiches at Stanton’s? Now THOSE were good!
SHORT RIBS- on sale at Safeway for $5.99 through Tuesday the 5th. And already it’s December!!!!
This is the count of over 1600 lies our beloved President has uttered since his inauguration Read them all HERE
Dr Eschker and his busy students have come through again. Home sales are UP but still below last year, while home prices continue to creep up. Read the whole thing HERE
Read it and weep. IT’s all HERE.
Busy, rainy week. Short column today.
ANNALS OF CONSUMER DISAPPOINTMENT: the little avocados at Grocery Outlet are no longer reliable. At least half of them have rotten spots. You can cut around them, but really…Worse was the surprise that came from a box of Marcelli’s spinach ravioli purchased at Murphy’s. I buy the meat ravioli for a quick meal every now and then (quick, not cheap- $5.99 for a hefty serving for one) but I hadn’t bought the spinach variety. I found them to be tasteless and watery and, worse of all, the ravioli fell apart while being simmered and about a million little pieces of spinach were floating around. Definitely unappetizing. The meat ones have damn little meat in them but at least they stay together. Their meat sauce, on the other hand, is celestial.
JARED AND GOD: the biggest non-event of the past several weeks was Jared Huffman’s declaration that he is a humanist, or at least a non-Christian. I’m glad he “came out”. I’m sure nobody cares. I’m sure not-being-Christian is no longer a disqualifier for public office. I keep wondering, WHEN WILL RON REAGAN RUN FOR OFFICE?? Our most famous atheist is sharp as a tack, well-spoken, and appears irregularly on MSNBC. Run, Ron, run! I’ll donate.
IS THIS TRUE?? According to the New Yorker, Nov 13, 2017, “According to a Pew survey…nearly eighty per cent of liberals like the idea of living in a dense neighborhood where you can walk to to shops and schools, while seventy-five per cent of conservatives would rather live in a larger house with more space around it.”
Which mental illness, of the many demonstrated by our Fake President, causes him to have to belittle everything and everyone who preceded him? His bragging that everything he does is “the greatest”, “the biggest”, or “the best” is putting everyone to sleep. And I am going back to sleep right now. What else do you do on a rainy Monday in November? Have a good holiday.
Our fake President gave himself a “10” for throwing paper towels at Puerto Ricans WHO ARE STILL WITHOUT POWER!! Read about it HERE.
