Somebody’s got to do something about Batman

Never though about it, but this does make sense. “Tough on crime” is the GOP code word for lock up minorities.


The sexual harasser in the White House

This story was written a year ago (From The New Yorker):

The most painful misrepresentation in Donald Trump’s largely lie-based campaign did not emerge until after the release of the 2005 “Access Hollywood” tape, in which Trump described his way of interacting with women to whom he’s attracted: pushing himself on them physically, without obtaining consent. “I just start kissing them,” he bragged, talking to Billy Bush, the show’s host. “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.” At the second Presidential debate, Anderson Cooper pointed out to Trump that he was describing sexual assault, and pressed him on the obvious question: Had he actually ever done the things he bragged about? No, Trump said—and he has continued to stick to this answer, despite the fact that twenty women have now come forward by name with firsthand stories about Trump’s predatory behavior—thirteen of them within just the past two weeks.

A Washington Post/ABC News poll recently asked respondents whether they believed that Trump “probably has or has not made unwanted sexual advances toward women.” Sixty-eight per cent of registered voters believed that he had; only fourteen per cent believed that he had not. Forty-three per cent of likely voters in the poll said that they would vote for Trump, suggesting that a significant portion of Trump’s supporters think that he’s lying, and do not care.

There are people who knew the pompous pussy grabber was a sexual predator and voted for him anyway. As vile and loathsome as he is, those who voted for him are worse.

No more ‘thoughts and prayers.’ Just do something … anything!

Now is the time.

Jimmy Kimmel has really become the voice for the downtrodden. Other comics have wrapped their criticisms in nice little funny packages, but Kimmel has just come out and said, “This is wrong,” on health care and on gun violence. I’m sure he didn’t want to be the voice of reason, but since no one else is just saying “These guys are scumbags” without having a punchline, I have to give Kimmel his props.

The Powerpuff Girls have a sister?!

Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup just found out they have an older sister:

I lost track of the Powerpuff Girls back when my kid finished elementary school (They first appeared on the Cartoon Network 22 years ago). Now I have to reacquaint myself with them. Especially since their newly found older sister, Bliss, showed up after exiling herself to Bird Poop Island.
