Full Frontal Thursday: Sanctioned Child Abuse & The Cult of Impeachment

In today’s installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam talks about Drumpf’s sickening practice of tearing children away from their mothers at the southern border. It’s interesting that she believes the lie that it started under Obama, but white women always want to blame a black guy or gal for something.

Also, Mike Rubens attends a meeting of the “Cult of Impeachment” which is headed up by Tom Steyer. Impeachment does sound nice, but it helps to think about what the entire process entails. Drumpf is horrible, yes. Pence just might be worse. That could be why many politicians on either side aren’t wanting to jump on that particular bandwagon.

Three Tunes on Tuesday

Here are three great songs I love hearing when they’re played on the radio. I picked the long, original versions of them. The DJs need to do so more often.

Last Week Tonight: Xi Jinping

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John shines the spotlight on China and its now emperor-for-life, Xi Jinping. The social scoring thing reminds me of the episode of “The Orville” titled “Majority Rule.”

Happy Father’s Day

Still Fishing?

People who endlessly fish for compliments are tiresome.

Ever tried looking inside yourself, by yourself, for something worthwhile about yourself?

If you haven’t it might be because there’s nothing there, and you know it. Demanding that others find it for you is beneath your age.

This lake doesn’t have what you want, and is far too deep for you and your shallow nature.

Get a clue. While you’re at it, get a life.

Five On Friday: Celeb Spotlight

Today’s “Five on Friday” post puts the spotlight on my five favourite living celebrities. They are the people who I always enjoy seeing when they’re being interviewed on the few late-night talk-shows that I watch.

1. First off, Whoopi Goldberg. She was hilarious when she first started her comedy career back when I was still a wee kiddie, and she’s funny as all get-out when she sits down with Conan O’Brien or Stephen Colbert. She pulls no punches and speaks her mind, similar to yours truly. I don’t watch her on “The View” because I’m not really into daytime shows of any sort. She was excellent in her role as Guinan, the manager of Ten Forward on the starship Enterprise in Star Trek: The Next Generation. I also enjoyed her performances in The Color Purple and Serafina.

2. Next, there’s Wanda Sykes. What can I add that hasn’t been said already? She does a bit of everything and does it well. I first saw her on the Keenan Ivory Wayans Show, and liked her recurring role on the Drew Carey Show – she played one of Drew’s love interests. I have her book and enjoy reading it from time to time. She’s funny, talented, and has a distinctive voice that stood out on the Comedy Central show Crank Yankers. Look that show up sometime if you need a laugh or ten.

3. Ricky Gervais: he cracks me up whether he’s being interviewed by Conan O’Brien, Stephen Colbert, or Trevor Noah but his interviews with Conan really stand out. I think that he’s the only person I’d follow if I had an Instagram account. The selfies he takes are fucking hilarious, and I think the selected image illustrates it well.

4. Terry Crews: he’s just awesome! I thought he was great in the role of Chris’s dad in the series Everbody Hates Chris, which is based on the life of actor / comedian Chris Rock. He wasn’t bad in The Expendables either, and his last interview on Conan O’Brien had me falling over with laughter.

5. Finally, Jeff Goldblum: he plays many serious roles but manages to interject his own personality and sense of humor into them. I loved him in Jurassic Park, Independence Day, and his brief role as detective Zach Nichols on Law & Order: Criminal Intent. I also look forward to seeing him as the Grandmaster in Thor: Ragnarok. Whether he’s sharing the stage with Conan O’Brien or Stephen Colbert, he is so off-the-cuff funny he can take you by surprise at the most unexpected times.

Finally, here is a funny video starring Jon Stewart, Conan O’Brien, and Stephen Colbert. This is the infamous “Late Night Wars” from a few years back. I would apologize for the poor video quality, but it isn’t mine so I’m not responsible.

Full Frontal Thursday: Singapore Summit, “Crisis Actors,” & Irish Abortion Referendum

In today’s installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam talks about the meeting between Baby-Hands McDrumpf and Kim Jong Un. Drumpf embraces yet another dictator while insulting and turning his back on America’s allies and further alienating this country from the rest of the world. Reminds me of the way abusive partners alienate their victims from family and friends in order to continue and escalate their abuse.

Next, she points out how the victims of the school shooting in Parkland are being targeted, harassed, and bullied by the usual cadre of trolls infesting the internet. This conclave of trolls, led by Alex Jones and his ilk, love to discredit people by mockingly deriding them as “crisis actors” or “social justice warriors” and gaslight with propaganda, conspiracy theories and lies.

Finally, it appears that Ireland joined the 21st century by bringing women’s birth control rights out of the 18th century to the present. Since this country is going backwards by leaps and bounds, it is refreshing to see another take a teeny-tiny step forward.
