February 14th was my mom's birthday

So on DU, I got some hearts, gave some hearts and enjoyed the process. Thanks to my anonymous donors who gave me a heart. And to those who were given hearts: I hope you enjoyed them. Isn't it funny how a little bit of electronic stuff can make us feel better?

Thank you for the hearts!

The latest one just arrived.

Thank you for my Valentine heart!

I just mostly come here and post snarky comments.

Gavin Newsom expected to take executive action to abolish CA death penalty

Source: NBC 7 San Diego

Governor Gavin Newsom is expected to announce he is taking executive action to try to eliminate the use of the death penalty in California.
Two sources familiar with the governor's plans tell NBC4's I-Team that Newsom may use the governor office's authority to reduce sentences of all condemned inmates on death row.
Newsom has been calling elected officials around the state to share some information, but details are expected to be revealed at a news conference at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
NBC4 has reached out to a spokesman for the governor, but did not hear back.
Newsom has been openly advocating for a moratorium on the death penalty and told the LA Times this week that he has asked his legal advisers to research his options as governor.

Gavin, as someone who's been aware of you since you were a supervisor, I know you like big bold gestures. I support your stance on the death penalty, as I did your stance on same sex marriage (sent flowers to City Hall along with many others).

However, I always ask myself "Are you doing this because it's for the greater good or because you think it's good for you?"

I can't answer that question. Maybe some other DUers can help me out.

Fake news you can use

Trump just resigned.

The Nobel committee voted unanimously to award him the Peace Prize.

I wish I didn't have to make this stuff up.

Build a giant mushroom at the border and label it "Trump Penis"

It would gratify his ego and be cheaper than his wall.

I know I'd run if I saw it.

I've been wondering about why these "border beds" are such an issue in the shutdown talks

How will that money the Trump administration is asking for really be used?

We know that (as reported by Rachel Maddow in September) that they are already siphoning off funds from other programs:

The Department of Homeland Security transferred $169 million from other agencies to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for the detention and removal of migrants this year, according to a document sent to Congress by DHS.

Many of the transfers came from key national security programs, including $1.8 million from the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office, $9.8 million from FEMA, $29 million from the U.S. Coast Guard and more than $34 million from several TSA programs. DHS also transferred $33 million from other ICE programs to pay for detention and removal, making the total amount of money transferred $202 million.

Now what are they going to do with all the new money they are asking for?

Detain all the asylum seekers that they are forcing to stay out of the country already?

Or order more concrete or steel slats so that Ozymandias can have his monument?

I want to know.

Oh, and thank you for my heart!

Oh, he finally shut up!


As I see it, there are two possibilities:

Either Trump was knowingly an agent of Russia, in which case he should be impeached and tried for treason


Trump was an unwitting agent of Russia, in which case he is too incompetent to be president and should be impeached and throw to the Southern District of NY.

(I know what you're gonna say, he's already proved his incompetence.)

Government still unable to evict squatters from the White House

Mr. Tak E. Buffon continues to squat in the White House since January 20th.

Unwilling to use force with such an "unpredictable actor", government officials have tried to use various "soft power" schemes to remove him.

The initial plan was to lure Mr. Buffoon away from DC with trips to various Buffoon owned golf courses, but sadly, he always found a way to return.

An alternative plan was to remove all Sharpies within a twenty mile radius of the District of Columbia, but Mr. Buffoon’s cadre of enablers smuggled in a supply of the markers disguised in a Big Mac wrapper.

Mr. Buffoon continues to do significant damage to the historical residence. Recently he was heard screaming, “Gold plate those toilets NOW!”

Mr. Buffoon also carries on his policy of his destruction for the country. “Let’s put coal sludge in the rivers!” “More carbon in the air!” “War on women - YES!” "Grant guns to senile old people!” “Let’s bomb people! ”Ooh, that’s a really big bomb - use it - find someplace to use it!”

When asked for a statement, popularly elected Hillary Clinton said, “Oh, ^&*#, this will take a long time to clean up. And I thought Obama had it bad.”

Senators Sanders and Warren have also indicated their willingness to help with the clean up. Senator Sanders said today, “Were it necessary to go into the White House and bite that fool on the calf to remove him, I would consider it.” Senator Warren was quoted as saying, “I have a shovel. I am willing to help with the clean up.” When asked whether she the aforementioned shovel was a snow shovel or garden spade, Ms. Warren replied, “I own both, and I fear both might be necessary.”

Alternatives do remain to remove Mr. Buffoon. Senator Burr and Representative Conaway could grow a spine and serve an eviction notice, but medical experts consulted for this report indicate that this is unlikely. Alternatively, Vladimir Putin might grow tired of blackmailing Mr. Buffoon, and release the damaging information he is known to possess.

Support for Mr. Buffoon remains strong in the heartland. When questioned, one Buffoon voter in Obscure county in a state beginning with a vowel said, “Sure. I still support him. He is bringing his Trump tie factory back from China to give us jobs.”

Replying to that comment, Buffoon spokesman and former White House Easter bunny said, “Mr. Buffoon denies the truth of that statement. He cares more about his markup than he does about the welfare of the American people. Oops, I told the truth - ignore that.”

As the press corps peppered him with follow up questions, Mr. former WH bunny became confused and ended the press conference shouting “Hitler is still under audit!"

I should not watch the WH press conferences, It causes me to write fake news.

Or is it fake?

The "check spelling" function is giving me some weird stuff. Hope this post looks OK.
