A Tax Too Far



There are a lot of things that I never thought I would see in my lifetime. The Pyramids of Giza, the Fjords of Norway, the Lights of Paris, The Mariners win a World Series, the Seattle City Council backing away from a tax so fast it’s dizzying. 

For all of that, one of the most surreal things I’ve ever seen now includes the President of the United States shaking hands with the leader of North Korea.

I have no clue who Ankit Panda is, but he’s forcing me to see myself and my own biases in a mirror. Why? Well… he’s already writing (on CNN, of course) that the Trump-Kim Jong-Un summit is a complete and total failure.

The City of Seattle is running away from the Head Tax faster than a vegan who accidentally walks into a McDonalds. Why? Because at the end of the day, when socialist utopian dreams meet the hard cold asphalt of reality, something has to give. While Socialism can and usually does try to force its way, even the City Council of Seattle realized that this time they’d gone a tax too far.

Twitter Gets People Fired



“Grumpy Dave” is here to have a thrombo over the various fake reactions to the Twittermination of Rosanne Barr. Look, if you’re a GOP leader at any level, stop griping about the MSM being “Fake News” by posting fake memes that support your view. Rosanne was never a conservative or even on the political right, no matter what the CHARACTER she gets paid to PRETEND to be said or did.

The volcano is going to get you, no matter what.

The good news is that the Entertainment writers have some suggestions for shows to be watched now that there will be no Rosanne Show. But all of them are meh, at best, or outright rip-offs of other plots. Really, who is surprised?

A Tennessee Congresswomen is pretty sure that she knows what’s causing school shootings. It’s something she seems to find every day in the grocery store as if she and her multi-million portfolio actually shop at grocery stores…
