Inside Spanky’s brain

This could be overstating things, because there’s nothing in there.

Waiting for the Belmont Stakes

Justified is going to try to win the last leg of the Triple Crown in two Saturdays at the Belmont Stakes in New York. But no matter what happens, he’s never going to do better than this:

This was one of the greatest sporting events you’re ever going to see.

Three thoughts on the NRA terrorist group and its GOP buttboys

Thought No. 1:

Thought No. 2:

Thought No. 3:

To stop the NRA, you have to stop the GOP. Otherwise, the shootings will never end. Because you only get bullshit like this from Republicans:

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick blamed Friday’s massacre at a high school near Houston in part on “too many entrances and too many exits” on the campus, prompting some to mock his perspective as “door control.”

“From what we know, this student walked in … with a long coat and a shotgun under his coat,” said Patrick, a Republican who has an A+ rating from the National Rifle Association. “It’s 90 degrees. Had there been one single entrance possibly for every student, maybe he would have been stopped.”

They will limit the number of doors, but they won’t limit the number of guns.

Missing children: another GOP crime

The administration of the korrupt krimson klown is kidnapping children:

On Feb. 20, a young woman named Mirian arrived at the Texas border carrying her 18-month-old son. They had fled their home in Honduras through a cloud of tear gas, she told border agents, and needed protection from the political violence there.

She had hoped she and her son would find refuge together. Instead, the agents ordered her to place her son in the back seat of a government vehicle, she said later in a sworn declaration to a federal court. They both cried as the boy was driven away.

For months, members of Congress have been demanding answers about how many families are being separated as they are processed at stations along the southwest border, in part because the Trump administration has in the past said it was considering taking children from their parents as a way to deter migrants from coming here.

Officials have repeatedly declined to provide data on how many families have been separated, but suggested that the number was relatively low.

But new data reviewed by The New York Times shows that more than 700 children have been taken from adults claiming to be their parents since October, including more than 100 children under the age of 4.

The data was prepared by the Office of Refugee Resettlement, a division of the Department of Health and Human Services that takes custody of children who have been removed from migrant parents. Senior officials at the Department of Homeland Security, which processes migrants at the border, initially denied that the numbers were so high. But after they were confirmed to The Times by three federal officials who work closely with these cases, a spokesman for the health and human services department on Friday acknowledged in a statement that there were “approximately 700.”

Every day brings us another atrocity with Spanky McPornfucker and his idiot band of drooling Nazi sycophants and inbred followers. And just so you understand the magnitude of scum of this administration:

More NRA death. More of the same.

The NRA terrorist organization strikes again:

Ten people were killed in a shooting Friday morning at a high school here in Southeast Texas by a student wielding two of his father’s guns, authorities said. Police were also investigating explosive devices found at the school and elsewhere in the community.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) said that in addition to the 10 people slain, another 10 people were injured in the rampage at Santa Fe High School, about 34 miles southeast of Houston.

Most of those killed in the carnage were students, said Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, who said the shooting occurred shortly before 8 a.m.

And we later find out this:

This piece of shit needs to be in jail with his miscreant son. Of course he supports the NRA and Fox News.

Bottoms up in K.C.

 The lesson here is that if you see a dollar bill in the street in Kansas City, don’t bend over to pick it up.

Although this is showing up all over the internet, this is an example of real fake news. The originator of this doctored the original sign, which said “annually.” Which means the fake newser, appropriately, is an asshole.
