The lawsuit over Our Fake President’s blatant violations of the law because of his refusal to divest while in office is finally moving forward. Read about it HERE.
As reported in the Washington Post.

TRUMP’S UGLY JACKET- If Trump keeps wearing that ugly flight jacket that he has apparently adopted as his disaster garb, his approval rating will go down to 15% by the midterm. Just watch.
MELANIA- While we’re talking appearances, Melania is being dispatched to Africa. She will apparently not say anything insensitive, since her English is still so poor it’s barely understandable. I’m sure she’ll look great.
AVENATTI- What do you think about Michael Avenatti as President? He couldn’t be any worse than what we have now. I think it’s about time we had an Italian. My generation expected the first would be Mario Cuomo.
REAL ESTATE- an 804 square foot flat was sold in San Francisco for $5.3M. Meanwhile a house of about the same square footage is selling in Cutten for $176K.
PASSAGES- Very sorry to hear of the passing of Marty Balin. They’re dropping like flies.
TRUMP’S BROMANCE -as reported by Daniel Dale in SALON- “Trump on Kim Jong Un; I was really being tough and so was he. And we would go back and forth.. And then we fell in love. No really. He wrote me beautiful letters. They were great letters And then we fell in love.” THIS IDIOT IS YOUR PRESIDENT. And we are the laughing stock of the world.
HUMBOLDT SOUP COMPANY- I am absolutely crazy about their Chicken Coconut Curry but I’m too spoiled to drive over there unless I know they have it. They post their offerings on Facebook, but not consistently, and not early enough for office workers to plan their lunch. I called over Thursday to see if they had the curry, was told they did, and rushed over just as they were changing the sign because they sold out. I settled for the Chicken Verde, which was good but their system relies on customers NOT having strong preferences. I’ve emailed her and nagged her and I truly believe that if she would post her soups DAILY before 11am, she would double her business. Am I wrong? I realize she’s apparently opening a new place, in the site of the late motorcycle cafe whose name I can’t recall. We wish her well.
WHY DON’T WOMEN COME FORWARD? When molested, harassed or raped? IMHO a lot of it has to do with how girls are raised, to not make waves. And a lot if it has to do with individual personality. I was raised by a grandmother who was sort of an Amazon (raised six kids while running a grocery store). She taught us to stand up for ourselves. A guy tried to rape me many years ago. I couldn’t WAIT to tell the police. The wonderful LAPD caught the perp in just a few hours and he was returned to prison (he was a parolee). My experience was terrifying but NOTHING like how a real rape would have been. I understand why women don’t want to report it but wish they all could. Unless you’ve walked in their shoes , you probably can’ t understand the pain.
KAVANAUGH”S MELTDOWN- was horrible to behold. As Bill Maher commented, he’s been taking Whiny Little Bitch lessons from Trump. This man doesn’t belong on a traffic court much less on the highest court of the land for the rest of his life.
The WAPO revisits that awkward speech at the CIA. Long, but worth reading.

From the Searchlight-Record, here’s an update on this very interesting project. Read it HERE.
-Did you vote for Sean Hannity? He wasn’t on the ballot, was he? Yet, several reliable sources have reported that because Our Fake President has fired or alienated so many sources of wisdom he is getting NO INPUT into his governance except from FOX TV pundits. When you elect a President whose only successful occupation was as a TV host, that’s what you get. You get Hannity, Jeanne Pirro and Lou Dobbs.
KAVANAUGH- the saga drags on. There are a dozen reasons for not confirming this child of privilege, the fact that he’s a harasser is just one more. The entire value of his nomination is that it thrusts into the limelight the piggish actions of Grassley and the rest of the GOP establishment. Hurry, midterms. Hopefully, we will see women voters out in force.
PUMPKINS- for some reason, I’m really ready for Hallowe’en this year. I’ve already got a big pile of candy on the DR table. I always put two or three pumpkins by the front gate. I let them sit there till they’re rotten, then I can scrape them into a garage bag. One year I woke up the morning after Hallowe’en to find someone had heaved them all into the middle of the street and I had to clean them up. I know who did it, too. I can’t recall his name but he lived in one of the cottages across the street and I think he was a dealer of some kind. He came to a bad end. So don’t mess with the pumpkins.
LOCAL ELECTIONS- I never think that elections are REAL until my sample ballot shows up. I called the elections office and they said that they’d be mailed this week. I don’t get to vote for much this time, but that doesn’t stop me from having opinions. FWIW, I’d vote for Natalie and Kim, also for Richard Marks again for Harbor Commission. I am amazed that Marian Brady is running against him. Her credibility will go poof once word gets around that she is backing the looney East-West railroad scheme. Marian is a good woman, it’s a shame. She obviously wants to hold another office. I would vote for Susan Seaman for Mayor. I have worked with her briefly and I know her to be pleasant and competent. In Ward One I would vote for Hailey Lamb. She’s young but at least she’s a Democrat. Caroline Brooks is unknown to me but her husband, John Chaffin, is a very nice guy. Anthony Mantova is a right-winger product of Hillsdale College. I can’t see him gaining any traction locally. IF anyone want’s to revisit John Fullerton’s behavior from last election, Google my post from December 2014. He has about as much chance of getting elected as I do, and I’m not running.
Okay, food snobs- Here’s a look at how food really does serve civilization. When you drive in the South, these guys are at every offramp. I’m ashamed to say I’ve never partaken. They actually do serve food other than waffles. From the Times- Democrat. Read it HERE.
God bless Jerry Brown. Read about it HERE.
