GUNS-  It must have taken Our Fake President at least 25 seconds to come up with the idea of reviving that old saw about “the only antidote to a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,”    That’s only correct if you see guns as a solution, not the problem. Of course, Don doesn’t DO his own thinking – he has Wayne La Pierre whispering in his ear and he gets the rest of his agenda from Sean Hannity. I wonder how he can keep a straight face claiming that HE would have stormed the school without a weapon.  Of course, of course.

“The SNAKE”-  I was VERY surprised to hear that the writer of that damn “snake” song was Oscar Brown Jr!   He was a fixture of the folk scene in the ’60’s but the song was covered by several other people.   I remember hearing it  on top-40 radio and thinking it was Ray Stevens.  (This was  around the time of “Ahab The Arab”.)  His two daughters have been complaining on TV about the misappropriation so  why don’t they just SUE the bastard?

The Olympics-  ran out of interesting sports before they ran out of broadcast  time.  That must be why we were subjected to several hours of CURLING  which has got to be the most useless waste of ice, time, whatever.

Things you don’t know about me:  1) I do not text, nor respond to texts    2) I have never eaten a Big Mac.

Humboldt County is in big trouble-  Our child welfare system is inadequate and we don’t have enough doctors. Please keep this in mind when examining the candidates for Supervisor this Fall.

WHY CAN’T JARED GET A CLEARANCE???   Jared Kushner, who doesn’t have a security clearance after a year and a half of hanging around the White House devouring the daily brief that the President can’t be bothered with,  IS A BILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT  from that ill-advised purchase of 666 5th Avenue  His note is coming due in a few months. Who will bail him out??  The Russians?  The Chinese? What a mess!

LOCAL BOZOS DEPARTMENT-  did you see the Times-Standard yesterday?.  A part-time teacher in Fortuna  (thankfully retired) claims he was packing a pistol while subbing in Fortuna !   Can he be prosecuted at this point? I hope so!!!
