Trump supporters: Let them eat cake

Enough about the human traffic cone. It’s time to go after the supporters of the human traffic cone:

I cannot believe we’re now at the point where political cakes are national news. And in the case of one representing the corrupt crimson crybaby, it was probably made of teeny, tiny ladyfingers.

But if I’m getting this right, in alt-right land:

1) Not making a wedding cake for a gay couple = religious freedom.
2) Not making a cake for a Trump sympathizer = denial of my freedom of speech.

(Yeah, and don’t even try to tell me there’s no way I could know that the strumplette here would be on the side of bakers who refuse to sell a wedding cake to a gay couple. If you can’t figure that out, you must be one of those “undecideds” who shouldn’t be allowed to vote.)

Time to quote the Rude Pundit (Proudly lowering the level of political discourse):

Anyone who thinks that Republican presidential candidate and walking traffic cone Donald Trump is prepared to handle the security of the nation is too fucking dumb to reason with and would probably be left in the snow to die if we lived in the Arctic.

And just to back that statement up, the nuck fugget gave an “important national security speech” today. Leading up to it, he said he had a plan to deal with the scumbag terrorist group ISIS (which by the way deserves every bit of hell we rain down on them):

Even as Trump has warned against military interventions, he delivered an aggressive — and difficult to reconcile — prescription for combating the Islamic State. He reiterated Wednesday that, if elected, he would give U.S. generals 30 days to present a plan to defeat the Islamic State. He stressed that his strategy would be multifaceted and would go after not just Islamic State fighters on the ground in Syria and Iraq, but also their financial and information networks.

Trump’s approach broadly tracks with that of the Obama administration, which has conducted thousands of airstrikes against the Islamic State while backing local forces on the ground in retaking territory seized by the militants.

So that’s his plan? Ask the generals what to do? In other words, do what Obama is doing? Is he a moron for not knowing that his plan is Obama’s? Or are his followers morons for believing he actually had a plan?

(Sorry. I’m getting angrier every day I see polls indicating the presidential race is getting tighter. If this pseudo psycho heartbreak of psoriasis doesn’t lose in a landslide, we’re doomed as a nation.)

A young Betty White never saw sliced bread

Just a random discovery on the internet:

5a5f69db-6812-4674-a9bb-09e40257400e

I was inclined not to believe this, but according to Mental Floss:

The concept of sliced bread first came about thanks to Otto Rohwedder, an American inventor from Iowa. Rohwedder constructed the first loaf-at-a-time bread-slicing machine for commercial use, but initially had some trouble selling it, or even the idea of it; many bakers expressed concerns about the bread becoming stale too quickly or simply falling apart if sliced.

At first, to combat the worry of the bread quickly going stale, Rohwedder recommended the use of pins to hold the bread together after slicing. Since removing pins to get a slice of bread was inconvenient, Rohwedder soon amended his packaging plan: The loaves of sliced bread were to be wrapped in thick wax paper immediately after being sliced, to keep them fresh. Despite these ideas, bakers were still convinced that customers wouldn’t care whether or not their bread was sliced.

But the Chillicothe Baking Company, in Chillicothe, Missouri, was willing to give Rohwedder’s invention a chance. They installed the machine and began to sell “Kleen Maid Sliced Bread” on July 7, 1928.

Oh, and Betty White just turned 94 this past Jan. 17. So she’s older than sliced bread. By at least six years.
