  1. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Cookie is flummoxed, too!     “What me want to know is: What are the implications of supply-chain crisis for cookie?”

    Trump to Skip 2024 Campaign and Go Straight to Claiming He Won PALM BEACH (The Borowitz Report)  Donald J. Trump will skip the 2024 campaign and go straight to claiming that he won, the former reality-show host has confirmed. Speaking to reporters, Trump said that campaigning in 2024 would be “a waste of time, quite frankly, because I have already won that election.” Asked how he could have won an election that is not scheduled to occur for another three years, he said, “People are saying that it already did happen. A lot of very smart people are calling me and saying that.” Trump said that, although he already won the 2024 election, “there was fraud and corruption like you wouldn’t believe. “The 2024 election was so stolen it makes the 2020 election look not stolen,” he said. “The fact that I won in 2024 even though it was stolen from me is amazing, and, quite frankly, fantastic.” Trump lashed out at a reporter who asked if he planned to run yet again in 2028. “I already won in 2028,” he said. “That’s a stupid question and you’re a disgrace.”

  4. Things to ponder

      Rural folk aren't safe, no matter what they think.
  5. Bavarians will tell you they're much friendlier. We were told - this was 1971, only 25 years after the war ended - that although we were foreigners, we were Americans: and anyone who could beat the Germans had to be extra special people. A little mind-blowing, but it was to our advantage, so we didn't complain. Besides, we looked German. Before we came to live in Rosenheim we gave hospitality to young adults from different countries. The Germans were pleasant and polite, but we noticed even then that our guests from further north weren't spontaneously warm. The most friendly were from Heidelberg and Rosenheim. There was one particular woman who was clearly trying to be as friendly as possible - for her - but she was still very formal. Our guests usually stayed two or three days, so we had an opportunity to get to know them.

  7. Politics Gen XYZ

    The original quote, from John Dalberg-Acton, 1st Baron Acton.  'Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority.'

    'Meanwhile, this Bliss (AMS) reminds me of Frank Zappa’s comment, “If your children ever find out how lame you really are, they’ll murder you in your sleep.” Though I have to say that the cat is probably not as shocked as the dog, and that, as long as the food keeps coming, we can maintain the pretense.' - Mike Peterson, from his blog  http://www.dailycartoonist.com/index.php/2021/10/05/csotd-funny-not-funny/

    How do you want to alter that statement? It seems to cover the situation as you've described it.
  11. American-German Dual Citizenship for Child

    And such children need a Social Security Number, if this hasn't been mentioned. They'll need to be identified with that number on the parent's/s' IRS forms.

    Avoidable through DIY manipulation. But, now that I think about it. phimosis would also serve them right. At least they wouldn't be reproducing more anti-vaxxers.

    Serve 'em right.
