Dumb. Dumber. Dumbest.

Two days ago, this appeared in Salon’s Twitter feed.

2016_12-16-salon

I posted it as part of my Mean. Stupid. Crass. blog yesterday, because it said Trump is president.

When Pistol Pete pointed out that it was an ISIS bomb, not an American bomb, I set out to find the source of the photo, something I only accomplished after I abandoned my initial and faulty assumption (based on the date of Salon’s tweet) that the incident was RECENT.

It’s not.  It’s from last MARCH, seven months before Donald Trump was elected and nine months before he WILL BECOME our new presidentThe headline of the story with the photo reads:

25 March 2016:  Teenage ISIS suicide bomber blows himself up at a football stadium near Baghdad, killing at least 65 people and injuring more than 60.

Please note: Pistol Pete was right. The bomb was not dropped by an American plane, as the Salon tweet suggested. An ISIS fanatic did it.

What Salon says of itself:  “Providing fearless political journalism and cultural analysis since the dawn of the digital era.”

  • What Wikipedia says: “Salon is a progressive/liberal website created by David Talbot in 1995 and part of Salon Media Group (OTCQB: SLNM). It focuses on U.S. politics and current affairs.”
  • What Paul Farhi, senior contributing writer for the American Journalism Review, says:  Salon offers “provocative (if predictably liberal) political commentary and lots of sex.”
  • What ChrissytheHyphenated, contributor at the award-winning PoliNation website, says: “Salon publishes typical progressive/liberal fake news.”

Sunday Fun with Jeff

Got about another 4-5″ of snow since yesterday. With the wind blowing around here there was a drift almost 2 ft. deep in front of the garage door. I waited 2 hours yesterday to have a new set of heavy duty snow tires put on my little Chevy Cruze, then filled it with gas and put 100# of kitty litter in the trunk. Without the new rubber I never would have finished delivering papers this morning. It is about 15 right now, but by this afternoon it will be below zero. When I head off to work tomorrow it will be -12 to -14. After 35 years of driving a truck there isn’t much I haven’t been through.

Just found a bunch of these and thought you might enjoy them if you’re not into pro football.
