Bat Guano

What does the typical republican voter look like?

And why do they look like this? Below is a sack of ballots from a typical epublican primary.

Thank whatever gods may be that Noah saved the bats!

Since I found PROOF (a building permit) of Noah's Ark at Lake Don Pedro, there is little doubt that the bats were released there. I know that quite a few republicans reside nearby!

The primary results were hard on the republican establishment. It's the only 'hard on' many republicans have had in years!

It's one time rump didn't hire an illegal to help him sweep!

Are illegal immigrants working on Trump's new hotel?

I would never say: "Republican Hypocrisy." It would be redundant to do so.

The use of undocumented workers on a Trump construction site such as the hotel described by The Washington Post this week is certainly nothing new.

Thirty-five years ago, a small army of illegal immigrants was used to clear the site for what became the crown jewel of Donald Trump’s empire.



Oh well...

mini-Super Tuesday, New England style

Somewhere, someone cares. But it is not here; it is not me.

I understand Trump. He is simple. Listen to him - briefly. 20 seconds will do nicely.

Hillary has some advice for the Donald...

The race on the democratic side is not only more interesting, it trumps the complete and utter lack of substance on the republican side. That revealing detail is hurting the GOP!

The race is one of numbers vs. changing numbers.

While some claim the race is over, the contestants are - in fact - just approaching the gates.

Of course, in the U.K., they look at this NOT as a horse race but as Bubba at the Dirt Track Stock Car race...

Joe six-pack and his beer-belly buddies see only the Trump. And that is exactly as it should be. "As Seen on TV"

99% of that worth knowing is NOT SEEN ON TV.

THAT is of NO concern...

There are growing concerns that Mr. Trump cannot be stopped.

Very very FEW people give a damn. (Very very FEW OTHERS represent the REAL REPUBLICAN CORE).

The 0.01% is already talking up an "impeach Trump" fantasy.

I do not listen to the OxyContin-addled deaf fat-man.

But when it comes to the gullible, you have to hand it to them!

I mean a deep-fat-fried corn dog on a stick!

With globalization, you might end up with a fried rat - on a stick!

New York street artist Hanksy is not a fan of The Donald, judging by a mural he painted last week on New York's Lower East Side. In it, the distinctive face and coiffure of Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump appears atop a pile of feces.

An image of the mural appears on Hanksy's Instagram account, pithily captioned “What a piece of shit."

Do you know what STOP means?

It's an odd discussion (pun intended) to bring up but STOP is a concept some people just don't get!

Above is a STOP sign. Drivers are supposed to know what it means. It means "cease moving."

Socially, there are STOP signs also...

Above is a limit line. It is before a crosswalk and before a STOP sign. Socially, this limit line also exists. Some choose to be insensitive to it in some social situations. Being tolerant of an obnoxious person is one example of being insensitive to limit lines. You can't say "Get Lost" to every fool you encounter.

A boundary violation is where you become obligated to say STOP.

Then there was a rare skin cancer called Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS).

KS was god's way of saying get the f*ck off the planet! O.K., that was insensitive. SV-40 was an OOPS! polio contamination. The "Cutter Incident" led to the recall of the Salk vaccine manufactured by Cutter Laboratories. The presence of SV40 in monkey cell cultures used in the preparation of the early versions of Sabin's oral polio vaccine (OPV) were cause for considerable concern.

I am not into conspiracies. If there was one, I was not in on it. I am into behavioral psychology and there are plenty of smoking guns (pun) around when it comes (pun) to AIDS.

Comparing the age distribution of a normalized population to the age distribution of an aids positive population is revealing. There are few really old aids folks. People with AIDS do not survive as long as healthy people. But then people with heart disease, strokes, and type two diabetes do not survive as long as healthy people.

I would not sit up all night worrying about other causes... Non-communicable diseases were responsible for 68% of all deaths globally in 2012. If you have one, don't communicate with me.

The Maitri AIDS Hospice in the 1990's was an attempt to help aids folks along the way. The task undertaken was far greater than the resources available. The undertaker dealt with the spill-over.

Hospice and Palliative Care are concerns for far more than aids patients.

Long-term care insurance may help.

Death as a homeless person is more often the case.

About 500 homeless people died in Sacramento (the California State Capitol) last year!

Add that to uninsured KS patients and you get the perfect storm. A public health issue becomes a public health issue on steroids. First responders face major HAZ-MAT issues.

There have been many academic papers on behavior management (or the lack thereof) in gay men.

The idea is this: some gay men have an ignition key, know how to start the car and step on the accelerator. They need to learn to look out of the window, read the signs, and STOP when necessary. Many are blinded to the signs, are unable to learn, and go full-speed ahead into the aids camp. This is preventable on several levels.

Besides, STD-related health problems are not limited to gays. Consider the STD-related health problems called gonorrhea and chlamydia and syphilis. Don't be just another drip (pun)!

Call it whatever you want, but consider avoiding calling it "Good, clean fun." And remember, it's better to ask a corn husker than a cornholer. The vulgar definition is HERE.

O.K., I don't get it. I never got it! (Prince) IMO, he was a wanna-be castrati. He never made it.

But now he's dead. The point being??? He was born, lived, and died. The next day it snowed - in Minnesota. Like his music, his death was in an elevator (and hardly an elevating experience to boot).
Call it Chem Trails.

An Irish lass - who has not aged well - did a cover of one of his compositions.

But "Purple Rain?" Never saw it. Not unto this day have I seen the film.

Oh, another prince?

Third Eye? Nah... not even one and a half...


Want MUSIC? Turn UP the sound and Try:

Translation is HERE.

THIS IS THE PAGE the above post refers to...

Or just friggin' go back to sleep with (YAWN!):

O.K. THIS WEEK, for the first time in my life, I heard Purple Rain on National Public Radio. Reminded me of Bob Dylan's "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" ballad.

There is an old saying: "You CAN pay for a flounder with a gold coin." (It is equivalent to "A fool and his money are soon parted.")

Besides, there is ONLY ONE PRINCE.
And I don't mean this mythical one:

I mean THIS one:

The Prince of Pups...

The sunshine in my life.
