The Flu: Day 3







My friend blames the flu on climate change. It never rains in December or January yet we've had a dozen rainstorms. It has been cool and hot and wet.

In between my sleep sessions I saw that the GOP may shut down the government again and blame it on the Democrats.





AND the Democrats want DACA included before they'll sign on to the GOP bill.





But there is good news! Jeff Sessions may rerelease REEFER MADNESS apparently due to his crackdown on marijuana.




Now back to the flu...


I cannot wait until I can post AHNC again, believe me.

Sick Day

I have the Flu or Gripe (Grip-pay) as they call it here in Costa Rica. At least that is what it feels like...sorta like a truck ran over me and sprinkled me with fever and chills.

I'm going back to sleep.


I will be back online asap. Deep apologies for any humor inconvenience. 

Peace.

The Foul Mouth Has A Foul Private Club

Trump’s Mar-a Lago cited by state inspectors for poor maintenance
A year after the discovery of foods that could sicken people at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, his Winter White House was just cited by inspectors for poor maintenance.
Never mind that it costs $200,000 in initiation fees to join the exclusive club, which has two restaurants and a bed-and-breakfast.
Fresh state records show the B&B needed emergency repairs in order to pass the latest inspection in November.

My Gawd The Trump Family Is Up To Their Necks In Non-Racist Dirt Too!
There hasn’t been an update in the Trump-Russia saga in the last few days, but those hankering for more Javanka-related intrigue can tide themselves over with a new report that the couple was warned about one of their friends potentially using their relationship to promote foreign interests.
The twist: The country in question is China, not Russia. And the friend is Wendi Deng Murdoch, ex-wife of News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch. And this report comes to us via The Wall Street Journal, which is owned by News Corp. Also, somehow this involves former British prime minister Tony Blair and a 70-foot-tall Chinese spy tower in D.C.

Happy Birthday Martin Luther King

South Africa to formally protest Trump's 'shithole countries' remarks
South Africa will issue a diplomatic protest to the United States Monday over US President Donald Trump's "shithole countries" comments, according to its foreign ministry.


Dear Millennials , 
When Baby Boomers were your age, their civil rights leaders were gunned down in a 5 year span from 1963-1968. 
  • JFK 
  • Malcolm X 
  • MLK 
  • RFK.
We Persisted. Continue the fight.


I have a dream that Trump will shut the f*ck up today. #MLKDay - Andy Borowitz





The World Is A Safer Place Without Saddam Trump

In the seven days since Oprah’s speech, Bannon was axed by Breitbart, Trump made his shithole comments, a porn star was revealed to have been paid $130K to deny having sex with Trump, and there was a fake missile attack on Hawaii, just in case you were wondering why you aged thirty years this week.- Andy Borowitz





I 💓 Conan O'Brien
Conan O’Brien was one of many Americans who were unhappy to read the reports that President Donald Trump called some foreign nations, including Haiti, “s—hole” countries — an insult that has been met with outrage and charges of racism. (Trump and Republican officials have disputed the exact comment, and today, Trump declared, “I am not a racist.”) But the host of Conan is not just doing a monologue about it, he’s hopping on a plane and letting cameras roll for an hour long special.



Still reeling from @realDonaldTrump’s very negative Yelp review of Haiti, which means I’ll love it. Headed to Haiti later this week to explore and make some new friends. Stay tuned for my report. #ConanWithoutBorders - Conan O'Brien






It would take 32-37 minutes for Korean missile to hit HI. Alert retraction took 38.

MSNBC Should Rename HARDBALL To SPITBALL
As you may know, Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's Hardball, recently pinched Hillary Clinton's cheek and then claimed that he is not obsessed with her. But, as this story on Daily Kos shows, Matthews is not only obsessed with Ms. Clinton, he has a burning desire to belittle, denigrate, smear, malign, badmouth and vilify her. Blogger David Brock has compiled a thorough list of Matthews' offenses against Ms. Clinton (and a few other female political figures) and it's abhorrent. 




This Man Gave His Life For Us. - Rep. John Lewis


Today, Dr. King’s legacy is a guiding light. As we push and pull for a more just and more equal society, Dr King’s campaigns against war, against poverty, against racism show us that love is the universal value of a society at peace with itself. - Rep. John Lewis
