JASON TREMBLAY: MAYBE THIS YEAR?

Last year I blogged about the injustice of child actor Jason Tremblay not receiving an Oscar nomination for his amazing performance in Room. My wife and I just saw Wonder, also starring Jason Tremblay.  And he was just as amazing this time around. Child or not (he is 11 years old), there is no reason at all why young Mr. Tremblay should not be nominated for Best Actor. Maybe this year academy...

BILL BUCKNER AND CHARLIE ROSE

Bill Buckner was an excellent major league baseball player with a 22 year career spanning four decades (1969-1990).  But, sad to say, he is most remembered for his fateful error in the 6th game of the 1986 world series, which allowed the New York Mets to score the winning run and then go on to beat Boston in the 7th game to become world series champions. Charlie Rose has been a fixture on...

ANOTHER MORALIZING CONGRESSIONAL HYPOCRITE UNCOVERED

John Conyers (D-MI) is currently the longest-serving member of congress (since 1965). He also is a serial sexual offender, who apparently has used taxpayer dollars to pay off at least one of the women he molested. From Paul McLeod and Lissandra Villa’s article at buzzfeed.com, we have this: Michigan Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat and the longest-serving member of the House of...

THE THANKLESS, HOPELESS LAVAR BALL

lavar ball is the father of Liangelo Ball, the UCLA basketball player who, with two of his teammates, was caught shoplifting in China, and is home now only because President Trump interceded. The players – at least on camera – were apologetic about what they did and thankful for the president for getting them off the hook.  But not levar ball. According to Ari Gilberg’s article...

Via an article at breitbart.com, here are a few pictures of stadium attendance at NFL games this past weekend: Denver: Cleveland: New York Giants:   Green Bay: Houston: And there are others (use the link to see them). But keep kneeling, clenching your fists and hiding out in the locker rooms, guys.  Look at what a great result...

MEA CULPA

Earlier today I put up a “Paragraphs Of The Day” blog which laughed at CNN for a mistake I thought it made in posting accusations against Al Franken for two groping incidents. My mistake was that, in quickly writing it, I did not pick up on the fact that CNN distinguished between them by pointing out that one happened when Franken was a comedian (to some, anyway) and one when he was a...

CHARLIE ROSE? WHAT IF HE DID, WHAT IF HE SAID HE DIDN’T?

From an Associated Press article:  PBS says it is immediately halting distribution of Charlie Rose’s interview program and CBS News suspended him following The Washington Post’s report of eight women who accused the veteran newsman of multiple unwanted sexual advances and inappropriate behavior. The women, three of whom spoke on the record in the deeply-reported story, accused Rose...

CALLING OUT AN INGRATE IS RACIST?

As you may be aware, three UCLA basketball players were caught shoplifting while in China.  They were arrested and would have been on their way to jail, had not President Trump interceded and secured their release.  All three admitted what they did and thanked the President. However, the father of one admitted shoplifter decided it would be a great time to insult President Trump – with...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Roy Moore, the candidate for senate from Alabama – a man with, at least as of this moment, no party, given that Democrats have their own candidate, Douglas Jones, and Republicans have turned away from him en masse. Mr. Moore’s quote concerns the unevidenced, unprovable accusations made earlier this month by Leigh Corfman that he sexually molested...

FLUSHED WITH FAILURE

Apropos of nothing political… Can Liquid Plumr possibly think it is a good idea to air a TV commercial with men and women showing their “plumber’s cracks” – i.e. the top couple of inches of their asses? This is so obviously in bad taste that whomever at the company and the ad agency approved it must have a combined IQ below 53. How do they think parents of young...

MUELLER’S INVESTIGATION: BASED ON BOGUS INFORMATION?

The so-called “Steele dossier” is a Democrat bought-and-paid-for hit piece on Donald Trump that was largely the basis for Independent Counsel (in name, anyway) Robert Mueller’s investigation of possible Trump/Russia collusion. You’d think that pretty much guaranteed it had credible information, wouldn’t you?  But, if so,  maybe you shouldn’t be so sure. From...

charles manson R.I.H.

charles manson, the career criminal and unrepentant murderer of 7 innocent people in 1969, is dead of “natural causes” at the age of 83. manson, who killed, so we were told, to spur a race war, was not alone in his murderous spree.  He “inspired” a cult following, by convincing a small group of stupid, gullible young women that he was some kind of demigod. The world is a...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Hillary Clinton. My previous blog referenced a comment Hillary Clinton made yesterday, during an event commemorating the 25th anniversary of husband Bill’s ascension to the presidency. Today’s quote was also made during that event. In talking about Donald Trump, as she incessantly does, Ms. Clinton said this about her husband’s...

WILL HILLARY CLINTON PLEASE JUST SHUT UP AND GO AWAY (CONT.)

Dear God, what does it take for Hillary Clinton to just shut up and go away? The latest reason I ask relates to the comments she made last night in Little Rock, Arkansas, at an event commemorating the 25th anniversary of Hubby Bubba’s election. With Bill no-doubt proudly sitting by, Ms. Clinton had this to say: “Apparently, you know, my former opponent is obsessed with my speaking out...
