We are the crappy section of the bleachers who messes up the wave.

Bring on the robots, I guess. Our best idea seems to be Trump. We're dumb.

The Safari

The guides were pointing to the spoor and whispering quietly to one another. I could tell we were onto something big. The footprint we found earlier looked to be that of the king of beasts, just the kind of animal whose head and skin you want to cut off. I could picture myself shooting him with my gun. I'm like that. I have the ability to visualize.

"English!" I said. I don't pay these idiots to talk gibberish.

"Pardon, Sir, the men are just saying they think they have the prey right where they want him." He smiled. This guy smiled a lot.

We bent low and left the trail, heading downwind of the animal. About half a click in I saw the sign in English and gibberish. "Game Preserve. Poachers Will Be Shot."

Fine with me. I paid extra.

We pressed on. We had walked nearly three clicks already this morning. I was beginning to sweat and feel hungry.

"Haven't we done enough walking?" I asked. I looked over at the other hunter who was part of our safari. "This enough walking for you?"

"Yeah, I'm about walked out too," he said.

"It's only a little farther, Sirs, " said Smiley. "Wait!"

"Sir, there he is," Smiley whispered. He pointed to a break in the jungle cover.

A lone male lion was drinking from a pool. What a beautiful sight. Just drinking. Just waiting for me. His whole life just waiting for this moment.

Smiley slid his arm out of the shoulder strap and handed me my gun. A beauty. I pulled back the bolt, then slid it forward, "chambering" my cartridge. I took careful aim.

The last thing I remember is hearing a shot. No, feeling a shot. It did not feel good.

I was lying sideways on the ground, but I could barely make out what was happening. The other hunter was handing a badge to Smiley and saying, "Thanks, I guess I won't need this any more."

Now I'm here in Hell.

How much would you sacrifice to see someone you don't like suffer?

Why don't Republicans put their postcard-sized tax return online?

Is that something that would be hard to do? If it's a postcard, Republicans should just put up an online form so that American taxpayers can enter their tax information on it. Then they hit submit and get a nice 20-year table showing their estimated savings (or screw job) under the Republican tax plan. People should be able to enter their email addresses to be notified of new estimates as the law changes.

Why can't this be done? Let's have some transparency here.

Any politician who did what Franken did (or worse) should be forced out of politics.

Dems just have to vote their numbers.

The only way we are going to get the country back to its senses is just to vote and toss every Republican out of every single office. It will do everyone good, including them.

Restore the country to sense and prosperity while giving Republicans the corrective waker-upper they so desperately need. When Dems don't vote, Republicans and their ownership steal and pollute everything, from the social environment to the environment environment. They are just getting worse and worse, so they need their courses altered for them.

Do the "movie merchandise" weapon boys show their women their toys?

Suppose you are a woman and you are dating a guy. You find out he has one of these "weapon systems" instead of just guns or no guns. Why on Earth wouldn't you just excuse yourself from the conversation and run for the nearest exit?

I just have a hunch that these guys don't show the women their little friends until the women (and their families and kids) are already locked into a potential stalking or murder-suicide drama.

Heard a White House flack saying they wouldn't sign a bill that raised middle class taxes.

Well, there you go. Trump's promised tax cuts for the middle class are now just "no tax increase."

Nuts uptake "movie merchandise" guns at a faster rate than normals.

Therefore, an increase in the flow of "secret decoder ring" guns increases the firepower of bad guys at a faster rate than good guys. Bad guys also always pick soft targets and have the element of surprise. In any given incident, no matter how many aggregate guns in the country there are, the nuts will make sure that the good person death toll is higher than the bad person death toll, them.

So just do the math. That's all.

And here's a twist. Sometimes the guys who think they are good guys aren't. In my experience, the more you want to be an armed good guy, the likelier you are to have a screw loose.

More math.

Look Folks, Trump colluded all right?

Don't let the fact that he did it live on TV with cameras rolling obscure the reality of what Trump did. He asked an outside country, a U.S. adversary, to help him against Clinton. Just face it. The kind of American that lets that slide? That's what the Trumpies have let themselves become. Sorry. It's just a fact.
