British Supermarket Chain B&M Seeks ‘Chicken Nugget Connoisseur’

“B&M, one of Britain`s largest variety store chains, announced on its website that it is seeking a chicken nugget connoisseur to taste-taste the chicken nuggets for its new line of store-brand frozen and fresh foods.

The posting lists `relevant experience` for applicants, including:
*Getting the 20 share box of nuggets from McDonalds and keeping them all for yourself.

*You can conduct a power point presentation on the reasoning behind curly fries being nicer than chips”

UPI

I`m a fast food junkie, but I do have standards, and I draw the line at chicken nuggets. This fast food staple looks and tastes like deep-fried sawdust. A chicken nugget is more foul than fowl, and chicken is probably way down in the list of ingredients.

I`m not qualified to be a chicken nugget connoisseur; I once made the mistake of ordering a box of 20 McDonald`s chicken nuggets and my pooch ended up eating 19 of them.

The “winning applicant” will be issued monthly $35 vouchers to spend on B&M`s line of frozen foods, and is required to share his feedback with the store chain.

Applicants must submit an essay explaining why they are deserving of the opportunity. I`m a writer, that`s what I do, but I`d rather write an essay explaining why I deserve the opportunity to participate in a study examining the dangers of consuming lead.

Sorry, B&M, but I think you know what you can do with your chicken nuggets.

Happy Birthday Betty White! America Loves You!

Whenever I see Betty White trending on Twitter my finger trembles as I click the link to find out why America`s sweetheart is trending. Whenever the nonagenarian icon is trending on social media, I fear it`s because the angels took her home.

Such was the case this morning when I see the screen and TV legend trending on Twitter; I breathed a huge sigh of relief when I found out that she`s in the news because she`s 96 years old today.

Those of you who`ve been reading my column for years are well aware of my cynical nature, and you might be surprised to learn that Betty White is my favorite celebrity, and not a hot mess like Miley Cyrus or a wise ass like Bill Maher.

Betty has the sweet face of a grandma who welcomes family and strangers to her home with a cookie and warm glass of milk, but who tells naughty jokes with a twinkle in her eye.

Betty has been warming our hearts for decades, from “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” to “Golden Girls” to “Hot in Cleveland,” while making us wet our drawers with her sarcastic humor.

A reporter recently asked Betty what the secret to her longevity was, and she answered: Vodka and hot dogs.

Here`s hoping that Betty downs at least four glasses of vodka every day along with a dozen hot dogs, because we want her to live 96 more years.

Happy Birthday Betty White! America Loves You!

Rev. Maurice Watson Denounces Trump’s Racist Comments with Red-faced Mike Pence in Pews

“A Maryland pastor on Sunday denounced President Trumps s—hole countries comment before God, his congregation and Vice President Pence.

Worshipers at the Metropolitan Baptist Church in Largo, Md., said the vice president grew visibly red-faced as the Rev. Maurice Watson called Trump out for his vulgar comments last week about Haiti and several African nations.

`I stand today as your pastor to vehemently denounce and reject any such characterizations of the nations of Africa and of our brothers and sisters in Haiti,` Watson told his congregation as Pence looked on.

`And I further say: Whoever made such a statement, whoever used such a visceral, disrespectful, dehumanizing adjective to characterize the nations of Africa, whoever said it, is wrong. And they ought to be held accountable.`”

New York Daily News

Sometimes a Christian pastor is required to minister to the least among us with the compassion and humility of Jesus Christ, and sometimes he`s called upon to speak truth to power with the vehemence and thunder of an Old Testament prophet.

If Vice President wanted to bask in the praise of like-minded evangelicals in the aftermath of Donald Trump`s blatantly racist shithole comment, he should have visited a white evangelical church.

White evangelical churches have a long history of not just tolerating racism, but practicing racism, and a racist charlatan like Trump is as welcome as a snake oil televangelist.

Mike Pence made the mistake of attending a black evangelical church shortly after his boss uttered his toxic comments, and the pastor was duty-bound to vehemently denounce the president`s racist rhetoric.

Pence`s huge Bible was no shield for the minister`s words of condemnation, and his face was red with fury and humiliation.

Sunday night Pence probably commensurated with Trump`s evangelical advisory council in a presidential circle jerk.

If only the Rev. Maurice Watson was granted an audience with Trump!

Donald Trump and Melania Trump Are an Affront to the Memory of Martin Luther King Jr.

Legislation was signed in 1983 creating a federal holiday marking the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Taking place each year on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is observed as a national day of service in honor of the tireless crusader for peace and justice.

Unfortunately, very few people who aren`t federal employees actually get the day off, but we should still honor the memory of MLK by serving others after we get off from work.

Donald Trump, the President of the United States, didn`t set an example for the people that he serves by helping build a house for Habitat for Humanity or by serving meals in a food kitchen, he was too busy playing golf with his millionaire pals.

Melania Trump on Monday sent out a tweet acknowledging Martin Luther King Jr.`s lifetime of service, but nobody was buying it.

Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. & his service to this great country. I am honored to be First Lady of a nation that continually strives for equality & justice for all. #MLKDay

The nation may strive to create a more perfect union, but her husband`s racist rhetoric and policies are setting back our democracy decades.

If Melania really wanted to honor the memory of MLK she would poison her hubby`s covfefe.

I`d better forget the execrable Trumps if only for this holiday, so I will be in the proper state of mind to celebrate the birth of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Donald Trump Must be Removed From Office by Any Means Necessary

In the future we will have to explain to our grandchildren just how exhausted and debilitated we were after surviving the interminable first year of Donald Trump`s presidency.

In his inaugural address Trump lamented “American carnage,” his words had a prophetic quality because he has bulldozed and trampled over our democratic institutions of the free press, independent judiciary and bipartisanship leadership. Any sober-minded patriot who considers the state of the Union will see carnage everywhere. Trump didn`t end American carnage as he promised in his inaugural speech, he exhilarated the decline of all of our democratic institutions.

After a year of living under the Trump regime I am simply exhausted, Trump is like a category five hurricane that never runs of of steam because it`s powered by Satan`s infernal farts. It is impossible to ignore Trump without becoming a recluse and unplugging the TV and radio, and going offline. The only solution is to remove Trump from office BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

Trump will never pivot, he will never become presidential, and he will never reach rock bottom. His mind is a bottomless shithole of racism, vulgarity and paranoia. As a political writer for a local newspaper and a blogger I am perhaps more exhausted than most of my fellow Americans, because it`s my job to chronicle Trump`s racism and sheer insanity.

But we must not grow weary in well-doing, we must continue our fight against our shithole president and his shithole Republican enablers until he`s removed from office, and I emphasize BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

Study: Dog Owners Would Rather Be With Pets Than Friends

“More than half of American dog owners admit they flake out on social events to hang out with their pet, according to new research.

The study of 2,000 dog owners found skipping out on human commitments specifically to get a bit of quality furry friend time is a common occurrence.

That bond is understandable given the way they aid our mental health – from their ability to lessen relationship stress to softening bad days at work and more, the average dog gets their owner through five (4.83) stressful events every week.

In fact, six in ten survey-takers said their dog often takes care of them in some way, shape or form, reinforcing the important two-way relationship between dogs and humans.”

Fox 10

I`m not surprised by the results of this study, I`d rather hang out with my pooch, Mandy, than engage in any social interaction with a friend, colleague or family member.

Of course I would rather spend quality time with my loyal and faithful canine companion than attend a social event where rats are scheming to climb the social ladder or flirting to find a rutting partner for the night.

Even innocuous small talk with a friend or coworker is like navigating a minefield, whereas walking or playing with Mandy is an oasis of peace and relaxation in a chaotic world.

Don`t feel guilty if you flaked out on attending a baby shower or a friend`s birthday party to hang out with your dog. That adorable baby will probably grow up to be an ungrateful spoiled brat, and your friend is probably bonking your girlfriend, whereas your pooch will remain faithful and loyal for the rest of his life.

Merriam-Webster Rebukes Shithole President Donald Trump

It should come as no surprise that the Merriam-Webster Twitter account is on a mission from God to correct the word usage and typos of the most ignorant and intellectually-challenged American president in history.

Ten times Merriam-Webster has majorly trolled Donald Trump:

https://moneyish.com/ish/10-times-merriam-webster-has-majorly-trolled-donald-trump/

On the same day that the Washington Post reported that Trump called Haiti, El Salvador, and various African countries “shithole countries” while discussing immigration policy, Merriam Webster announced that their word of the day was “reprehensible.”

An almost perfect rebuke of our racist president, it would have been perfect if Merriam-Webster included an image of Trump under “reprehensible.”

Merriam-Webster defines “reprehensible” as worthy of or deserving reprehension, blame, or censure.

Throughout the presidential campaign and during his first year in office Trump has uttered blatantly racist remarks against Mexican immigrants, Mexican Americans, African Americans, Muslims and Haitians, to the extent that it renders him unfit for office.

And as we have seen with the issue of immigration Trump`s racist mindset influences policy. Trump wants to limit immigration from African, Muslim and Latin American countries.

There are a dozen reasons why Trump should be impeached, not the least of which is his bigotry and racism. Unfortunately, the shithole president won`t be impeached until the Democrats take control of Congress in the mid-term elections.

But in the meantime Congress should censure Donald Trump for his shithole remarks. Censure is the most extreme reprimand, short of impeachment, that Congress can take against the president.

Shithole President Makes Shithole Racist Statement

During a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators at the White House discussing immigration in general, and DACA in particular, President Donald Trump referred to El Salvador, Haiti and the entire continent of Africa as “shithole countries.” Trump followed that pearl of wisdom by suggesting that he`d rather see immigrants from countries like Norway.

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton, David Perdue and Lindsey Graham, Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin and Republican Reps. Bob Goodlatte, Kevin McCarthy and Mario Diaz-Balart were at the meeting.

Oh to be a fly on the wall! How did these illustrious politicians react when Trump made those obscene and blatantly racist statements? I would have immediately called out the president for his inflammatory and bigoted remarks. Unless someone surreptitiously recorded the meeting we may never know, but we do know that not one of these statesmen has publicly repudiated Trump since the infamous meeting.

The silence has been deafening from the likes of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell; are they banking on the notion that America has become inured to the fact that out shithole president is a racist?

We must never accept the fact that Trump is a racist, we most condemn him every time he makes a racist comment. Trump`s racist remarks lead to racist policies which leads to violence against people of color.

Politicians must follow the example of Rep. Mia Love, a Utah Republican whose parents came to America from Haiti who issued the following statement:

This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation. The President must apologize to both the American people and the nations he so wantonly maligned.

My parents came from the shithole countries of Mexico and Venezuela, and they instilled in me a strong work ethic, a desire to educate myself, and a passion to speak out against racism. As a columnist for a local print publication, and as a blogger I will condemn Trump every time he utters a racist comment.

Time Cover Depicts Donald Trump’s Urine-Colored Hair on Fire

“Time magazine on its latest cover shows President Trump`s hair on fire to depict his first year in office.

The cover, which was designed by artist Edel Rodriguez, depicts the president screaming with his yellow hair on fire. The caption reads: “Year One.”

Rodriguez said the flames in Trump`s hair is a reference to author Michael Wolff`s new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”

The Hill

Donald Trump is such a narcissist that he salivates whenever he makes the cover of a major magazine, especially Time Magazine. Trump often brags about how many times he`s appeared on the cover of Time, and until recently he even had a fake cover of Time depicting him displayed in several of his resorts.

But I don`t think the dotard will be displaying the latest cover of Time featuring him in the Oval Office. It depicts the president screaming with his urine-colored hair on fire. The image doesn`t show him below his belt, but if it did his pants would be on fire, since he`s the greatest liar ever to reside in the White House.

I find it especially delicious that the artist is a Cuban American; I can imagine Trump tossing and turning in bed, unable to sleep because a Latino has so thoroughly captured his essence.

The talented artist in 2016 depicted then-candidate Trump in “Meltdown” and “Total Meltdown” on Time covers. I eagerly anticipate one final Edel Rodgriquez Trump Time cover: The caption will be “Impeached” and the image will ashes floating in the breeze.

Hero Confronts and Slaps Filthy Swine Harvey Weinstein at a Restuarant! Video!

“According to TMZ, the confrontation happened in Elements restaurant at the Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa in Paradise Valley.

TMZ reported that the producer, who is said to be undergoing rehab through the exclusive Meadows center in Wickenburg, was eating dinner with his `sober coach` at about 9 p.m. when a man at an adjacent table asked to take a photo with him. Weinstein declined.

When Weinstein and the coach got up to leave, the other diner told his friend to start filming what was about to occur, TMZ reported.

The video shows the man walking up to Weinstein and saying, `You`re such a piece of s— for what you did to these women,` and slapping him in the face twice. Weinstein, who was caught off-guard, is seen caught off-guard.”

USA Today

For decades Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein used his political power and intimidating size to his advantage, sexually assaulting aspiring actresses and models.

In a perfect world this pig would be facing numerous indictments, and he would be too ashamed to show his face in public.

This monster has the unmitigated gall to dine in an exclusive restaurant with his “sober coach.” Are you kidding me, this human excrement should be eating a bologna sandwich in jail under the supervision of a correctional officer.

A civic-minded citizen walked up to Weinstein, and blasted him, saying: You`re such a piece of shi* for what you did to these women. The hero than slapped him on the face, not once, but twice.

This fat pig should be reprimanded every time he has the audacity to appear in public. He will likely get away with the dozens of times that he sexually harassed and assaulted women, it`s up to us to show this filthy swine that he`s not welcome in polite society.
