And In the Top of the News

With every passing day I become more and more repulsed by the way a once-proud nation has degenerated to the point I can hardly read a headline without some level of nausea. I had fully planned to stop posting altogether, except for posting images. The week Chrissy was sick I posted what I thought was some pretty good stuff. For days, there was no evidence that there was anybody around but myself. This site has meant an awful lot to me. I’ve made lasting friends who have been there through times thin and flush. Conversations were once lively and fun. Now it seems there’s an echo of emptiness. I will try to continue as I can, but time will tell for how long.

MO Sen. Chappelle-Nadal Issues Tearful Apology to Trump and His Family After Wishing Him Dead
Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal hoped for the assassination of President Trump in a Facebook comment on Thursday then deleted it in a panic.

RACE HUSTLERS NEVER FEEL ANY REMORSE FOR THEIR BIGOTRY. WHAT THEY FEEL IS FEAR THAT IT MAY COST THEM POLITICAL POWER AND THE ILLICIT CASH IT INVOLVES.
Amid calls for her resignation, a Democratic state senator in Missouri on Sunday said she made a mistake for posting on Facebook Thursday that she hopes President Donald Trump is assassinated.
Chappelle-Nadal said her judge and her jury is my Lord Jesus Christ.
YEAH, GO INTO YOUR PHONY PIOUS ACT. THE RUBES IN THE MEDIA WILL EAT IT UP.

Trump and FLOTUS to Skip Kennedy Center Honors
THE LEFT WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND THAT TRUMP DOESN’T FEED OFF THE SLOBBERING ADORATION OF THESE JADED ASSHOLES LIKE OBAMA DID. HE COULDN’T CARE LESS IF THEY LIKE HIM OR NOT.
“The President and First Lady have decided not to participate in this year’s activities to allow the honorees to celebrate without any political distraction,” the statement said. “First Lady Melania Trump, along with her husband President Donald J. Trump, extend their sincerest congratulations and well wishes to all of this year’s award recipients for their many accomplishments.”
Several prominent artists have said they will not attend the event following Trump’s divisive comments in the wake of violent protests in Charlottesville, Va. over the weekend.
Dancer Carmen de Lavallade announced Thursday she would be skipping “in light of the socially divisive and morally caustic narrative that our current leadership is choosing to engage in.” Television producer Norman Lear also will not attend.
Singer Lionel Ritchie is a “maybe.” Singer Gloria Estefan said she plans to attend to convince Trump of the value of immigrants.

NYPD Officers Rally To Support Kaepernick: ‘He’s Being Railroaded For Speaking The Obvious Truth’

EVERY DAMNED ONE OF THEM SHOULD BE FIRED. POLITICS SHOULD NEVER BE A PART OF LAW ENFORCEMENT. THANKS AGAIN, OBAMA
Kaepernick protested the national anthem last season because he said he was “not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”[…]
The officers wore T-shirts that said “#IMWITHKAP.” Per the Associated Press, the rally consisted of “about 75 mostly minority officers” with the exception of Serpico,, who’s known for exposing police corruption and said of supporting Kaepernick, again per The Daily News:
“I am here to support anyone who has the courage to stand up against injustice and oppression anywhere in this country and the world,” said the 81-year-old former detective.

The Day That Humor Died

We lost two people over the weekend who were referred to as comedians. Humor, it seems, is generational. People laughed at vaudeville, Laurel and Hardy, Ernie Kovacs, the Three Stooges, Lenny Bruce, and BETs Def Comedy Jam. Some people think holding up a bloody piece of meat that looks like the president’s head is rip-roaringly funny.
I never saw Dick Gregory’s live act. I did see him on Johnny Carson and a few other guest spots, mostly there to bash white people in the name of civil rights. I never found anything funny about black comics whose entire schtick was bashing white people. With the ingrained antipathy toward caucasians they have a ready-made audience. The same people who idolize rappers, drug use, and murdering police officers.
When Jerry Lewis, the son of vaudevillians, was paired with a handsome Italian crooner named Dean Martin, magic happened. They were perfect together. Martin, the straight man to Lewis, playing a zany lunatic. They made history together. After they split Martin went on to a successful career as a singer and Las Vegas icon. Lewis wrote, directed, acted, and produced one hit movie after another. He had total control because the studios knew anything he touched was box office gold.
Lewis had another burning passion, and that was children. Danny Thomas founded Saint Jude’s Children’s Hospital, and Lewis raised hundreds of millions of dollars to fight the child-killing affliction of muscular dystrophy through his Labor Day Telethons that aired for years. In the early days, it was the only program that was on long after the other stations had signed off for the night.
The most emotional moment of the event for me was the time when, after decades apart, Dean Martin walked onstage and hugged his old friend. I also remember Lewis grousing about how his son, Gary, and his band, the Playboys, who had a hit in the 60’s called “This Diamond Ring,” would practice at his house and make such a racket he made them leave.
Dick Gregory will be remembered as a minor talent. Jerry Lewis will be remembered by those of us who grew up laughing along with a man who was blessed with a multitude of talents and did them all well.


Flynn: Jerry Lewis and Dick Gregory, Comic Geniuses If Only They Were Funny
Dick Gregory and Jerry Lewis passed away this weekend. Their deaths were no laughing matter to their many fans. Their lives were no laughing matter to their many critics.
