Political Pondering…

If Congressman Conyers and Senator Al Franken are required to resign due to the allegations being made against them, then why is there even going to be an election for Senate candidate Roy Moore?

I’d ask someone from Alabama, but I don’t think I’m up for their unhinged psychosis. Inbred southerners are prone to snap in the same way Dobermans and pit bulls are reputed to!

A Must-Read: “The Nationalist’s Delusion”

I recently came across this excellent piece in The Atlantic and felt that today was a perfect day to post it. The entire article can be found by clicking the link in this sentence.

I hope that you enjoy this piece as much as I did. It is quite thought-provoking.

Full Frontal Thursday: Roy Moore, Meet the Pences, Tangier Island, & The Future of Comedy

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Ms. Bee talks about how utterly disgusting Roy Moore really is, and how utterly creepy Mike Pence the VP and his wife are.

Also, Allana Harkin goes to Tangier Island, some inbred community in B.F.E., and shows us all how frustrating and futile it is to attempt explaining basic facts to people who aren’t interested in them.

Finally, Sam goes on a semi-rant about the future of comedy. She has a bee in her bonnet about something, there!

Last Week Tonight: Little Donny’s First Year

In this installment of “Last Week Tonight,” which will be the last one of 2017, John Oliver looks back at the Drumpf’s first year in office. Has it only been a year since people completely threw intelligence and common sense out of the window? It certainly feels much, much longer!

I’d have to say that I’m a bit disappointed to have lost acquaintances due to politics, but not surprised. The people who claimed to desire open, civil dialogue are the same people who are using and normalizing the Drumpf’s tactics. It is what it is. Fortunately, this, too, shall pass! I remain hopeful, and will keep on keeping on.

Full Frontal Thursday: Another Shooting, Russian Bots & Trolls, and Eric Schneider-man

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam talks about the latest mass shooting here in the U.S. Way to go, Texas! Keep it “bigger and better” down that way, y’all!

Sam also talks about how easy it was for the Russian-generated bots and paid trolls to infiltrate most social media, and how cheap a price they had to pay to do so. Her “vote Jill Stein” jab at the end was duly noted, as the Russian trolls were promoting Jill Stein considerably during the 2016 election – and, Sam herself threw her mindless support behind Gary Johnston before jumping on the Hillary train! ‘member that?

Incidentally, I have mentioned bots and trolls on my blog in the past. I know full well that they are also prevalent in the online gaming community, because that is also a form of social media. People out in the blog-o-sphere just brushed off my statements and ignored the facts I presented. People are incredibly selective about who they choose to believe, and let their personal biases determine same – even though those very same people claim to want “honest, open dialogue” with others. The mental gymnastics of the hypocrite would garner perfect 10s in the Olympics, I wager…

I digress: In the final clip, Sam sits down for an interview with Eric Schneiderman, the Attorney General for the State of New York, who offers up some much-needed sense and sensibility.

Full Frontal Thursday: Climate Change

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam Bee talks about climate change and follows with a sweet little song. Climate change is something which affects ALL of us. Because, you know, we all live on this planet. It’s not something which MIGHT harm us. It has, it is, and will continue to. Batten down the hatches, folks! While you’re at it – learn to swim.

A public elementary school in Mississippi named after the president of the Confederacy will be renamed to honor the first black president of the United States.

Davis Magnet International Baccalaureate Elementary in Jackson, which is named for Jefferson Davis, will be renamed Barack Obama Magnet International Baccalaureate Elementary beginning next school year, the school’s PTA president, Janelle Jefferson, said at a Jackson Public Schools Board of Trustees meeting Tuesday night. The prospect of changing the name of what Jefferson called the best elementary school in Mississippi was raised by a student, she told NBC News. “They know who [Davis] was and what he stood for,” she said. “This has a great impact on them, because [Obama] is who they chose out…

Full Frontal Thursday: Weinstein, Women’s Health Care Rollback, and Finnish Fake News

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Ms. Bee talks about the scandal surrounding Harvey Weinstein, and how his disgusting acts were covered up for decades by many – including the very women who are now speaking out. Hey, nothing like a good old-fashioned sex scandal to boost a sagging career, and the money earned will boost their sagging body parts.

Also, women’s health care is under fresh assault again. Companies are now free to deny birth control if it goes against “religious or moral beliefs.” Isn’t that delightful? Funny how bible-thumpers don’t see that they really are just as restrictive of women’s rights as the Muslims they hate – perhaps even more so – but why let little things like facts and reality get in the way?

And finally, Sam’s token Brit takes a trip to Finland, since she’s the only member of the crew who would be allowed inside the borders of that frigid, sub-Arctic locale. Now that I think about it, Sam and the other Canuck chick would be accepted, too…

Full Frontal Thursday: Puerto Rico, Health Care, and Bubby vs. Bubby!

In today’s installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam gives us a primer on the history of Puerto Rico with assistance from Javier Muñoz. Also, a health program known as C.H.I.P. faded out of existence, and we’re taken to Florida to see how ‘civilized’ elderly, retired Jewish people discuss politics. It’s so much different than the way politics is discussed in every other corner of the USA!
