HE’s too much in love with the sound of his own screeching voice . This man should not be leading a country. Now he’s claiming “there is hate all over the world” but why only mass shootings in the US? He doesn’t know or care as long as he can deflect the blame. Read about it HERE.

TRUMP BLAMES THE VICTIMS OF ASSASSINATION ATTEMPTS
While he continues to serve up a daily dosage of hate and self-pity. Salon has a good summary of the situation. It’s HERE.
SHORTRIBS AND RANDOM THOUGHTS Oct 29 2018
In the wake of terrorist bombings targeting the media, the closest Our Fake President can come to an apology for his inflammatory behavior is to smirk “I’m trying to be nice”. This is the first admission from Trump that he is unfit to be President. Yes, Presidents are supposed to be nice. They are supposed to be above the kind of gutter politics that Trump has almost normalized. Have we forgotten that Fred Trump was arrested at a Klan rally back in the ’20s? Have we forgotten the Trumps’ long record of racist business practices? The folks who elected him knew exactly whet they were getting. Now it’s up to the rest of us to clean up the mess and reclaim the English language. “Refugees” are not “invaders”. Peaceful protesters are not mobs. Graciousness is not a sign of weakness. And you can quit waiting for Trump to actually come up with a specific example of “fake news”. Anything that doesn’t praise him is “fake”. The entire planet is suffering from his ignorance and narcissism. Oh, and Jamal Kashoggi is still dead, and Trump will cover for the murderous Saudis because they own him. Let’s wipe that smirk off his face. Be sure to vote by Tuesday.
Here’s a lighter take; “We should never again elect a president that never drinks and doesn’t like dogs.” Michael Avenatti in POLITICO. – Amen to that.
DULCE BISTRO- -was still not answering the phone at 2pm Tuesday. They have apparently really closed. Meanwhile their competitor, Le Monde, is reduced to offering French Dip sandwiches. I guess that passes for “French cuisine” these days.
As if there weren’t enough bad news, the Philly-area pizzerias are now pushing PICKLES on pizza!!! I haven’t even accepted PINEAPPLE as a reasonable choice as a pizza topping. This is not good news.
John Cox, who is apparently running for governor, was escorted from the Chico COSTCO the other day for bothering customers as they tried to buy gas. Ya got to hand it to him for trying.
COCKROACHES AT RALIBERTO’S: I was terrified and astounded to hear that my favorite source of food, Railberto’s, had been closed by the Health Department because of a cockroach infestation. There are a lot worse violations than bugs, poor refrigeration being one . I must have gotten takeout from Ralilberto’s 50 or 60 times since they’re been open in Eureka and each time was a celestial experience. I’d put their fish tacos up against anyone’s. It is true that I am more blasé about cockroaches than some other folks, but I lived twelve years in Hawaii and you don’t live in Hawaii without getting used to cockroaches. Over there you have both the big bombers and the little ones. We didn’t mind the big ones because they supposedly kept the little ones under control. And if they get on your nerves, you can at least hear them and go dispatch them with a fly swatter. The little one, forget it. All you can do is try to keep the from getting established. The house I lived in the longest had a four-foot crawlspace which helped a lot. We always had a gecko or two but I never ONCE saw a gecko eating a roach. In fact, I never saw a gecko eat anything. I think they just exist, like an air plant. Anyway, I will be back to wonderful Raliberto’s. Very soon.
Just in: Our Fake President just told the Speaker of the House that he “knows nothing” about the 14th Amendment. I guess ignorance really is bliss. Read about it HERE.
Happy Hallowe’en, everyone!
TRUMP IGNORES STAFF WARNINGS ABOUT HIS CELLPHONE
Our Fake President insists on ignoring the pleadings of his staff to keep his cellphone conversations private. Why doesn’t he care? Read THIS:
TRUMP’S ESTIMATE OF SAUDI ARMS DEAL GROWS AND GROWS
As Our Fake President attempts to defend the murderous Saudi regime by claiming we NEED to honor our tentative deal, the specifics seem to be awfully vague. A good summary is HERE.
DIVERSITY COMES TO ORANGE COUNTY POLITICS
The huge number of Asians in Orange County will be reflected in the midterms. Most are Republican. Read about it HERE.
Is Santa Rosa Headed for Another Fire?
My cousin moved out of his house in Fountaingrove just before the fire. A lot of people weren’t so lucky. Are they going to keep on building and burning, building and burning?Read about it HERE.
HARBOR GROUP MEETS WEDNESDAY OCT 24
Release from the Humboldt Bay Harbor Working Group:
Short Ribs OCT 23 2018
“ROGUE KILLERS” Gee, I didn’t know Mike Pompeo was a trained investigator. The amiable buffoon allowed himself to be dispatched to Riyadh to provide credibility to the Saudi fake “rogue killer” story. He traveled all that way to prove he’s a fool?
“CRIMINALS POURING ACROSS THE BORDER ” NYT’S EMILY COCHRANE reports (@ESCochrane): “I asked President Trump what evidence he had that ‘hardened criminals’ are trying to enter the country. ‘Oh please, please, don’t be a baby,’ was his response.” At least two TV networks have stationed reporters with the caravan and they seem to be finding mostly women and children. Hmmmmm.
NIKKI HALEY profiled in the WAPO. She’s pretty formidable. Running in 2020? Read about her HERE
-Our Fake President is fond of murderous tyrants like Kim and the Saudis. What more do you need to know about where he would be trying to lead our country if he had the leadership ability to do so? At this point, his incompetence is expensive but not determinative. I wonder what his excuse will be when the GOP loses big in the midterms? Oh, right, blame everyone else. Meanwhile the lies just go on and on. Did you hear the one about how the Democrats have financed the caravan from Honduras? His screeching has long since become unendurable.
MISTER FISH- I wasn’t a frequent customer of Mr Fish. The owner was so rude I’d get my friends to go in so I wouldn’t have to. He survived a long time considering how obnoxious he was. The last couple of years he was less offensive but his reputation was well-established. It would be nice if someone else bought it but I’ve gotten used to buying my fish at WINCO, where I run into the local restaurateurs buying theirs. And there’s always someone selling tuna on the docks. We’ll survive.
CLOSINGS IN EUREKA- But the big picture is awful. In the past year or so we’ve lost Bien Padre, Roy’s Club, the motorcycle café, Bless My Soul, and I’m sure you can think of others. Can cannabis replace them? Not really. I even miss the old Marie Callender’s . Christmas is coming and I used to love their quiche as an easy lunch for entertaining.
AVENATTI FIRM IN RENT DISPUTE- of course in any case involving lawyers, it’s escalated to multi -million dollar claims. Read the LA Times account HERE.
GIVE yourself plenty of time to mark your ballot- it’s HUGE this time. I do mine curled up in front of the TV. I really wonder who the folks are who still trudge down to the polling place. And why.
JAMAL KASHOGGI DIED FOR YOUR SINS
The Washington Post reporter who was lured into the Turkish consulate in Istanbul and hideously dismembered WHILE STILL ALIVE, left his last column, about the need for free expression in the Arab world. Meanwhile the amiable idiot Pompeo is perfectly willing to provide distraction with a useless “mission” to Arabia that had zero results. Kashoggi was a martyr to the idea of a free press, which, no thanks to Our Fake President, we still have. Read Kashoggi’s last piece HERE.
