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!
