Curtsying like a school girl, wearing orange make-up and eye liner, using bobby pins in the dyed blond hair, gossiping like some housewife, letting his inner mean-girl take over while Tweeting - it's all just so Alpha! coffee

It is possible that CONservatives wouldn't know a butch masculine guy if one were standing right in front of them? Hmm

New Jersey doesn't have a budget, so Chris Christie has shut-down the usual amenities in the state including state parks and state beaches. Campers on the beaches were asked to leave, including a boy scout's troop.

...but look at this aerial shot of a beach in front of the Governor's mansion. That's not a beached whale - that's Chris Christie enjoying the very beach which he ordered closed.



Said Christie:
Quote:
“Run for governor and you can have a residence [on the beach.]"

I'm seeing a lot of sponsored web links to a site that promotes a "new energy source" that "could completely displace solar". I've actually watched their spiel and it is all about lithium.

Now lithium is great for making batteries and all, but lithium itself is NOT a primary energy source and lithium batteries are NOT primary cells. You never get as much energy out of a lithium battery as you put in so they are actually an energy sink! (a consumer of energy)

All the BS they are slinging makes me really doubt they understand anything about lithium. And yet I keep on seeing sponsored links from otherwise very reputable websites. Shouldn't there be some sort of way to report this so they are not participants in fraud?

To Governor Christie and President Trump:
Chutzpah is not a policy, it is a character flaw.

Everyone I know in other countries is wishing me Happy Independence Day but here at home, Right wingers on Twitter had a huge meltdown when National Public Radio tweeted out the text of the Declaration of Independence, saying, among other things, that "NPR is shitting on the president."
Yeah, they ARE THAT STUPID. ROTFMOL tinfoilhat ROTFMOL

Twitter Meltdown

Just found the perfect place to watch fireworks: The local Mexican supermarket parking lot! It was as close as you want to be, in terms of noise. Then after the grand finale, I went inside and bought some telera rolls since they are open until 10.

I saw over a dozen different shows from the roof of my 7-story apt building on the Foss Waterway on the Puget Sound. The best fireworks were on Vashon Island. Dash Point had the second best. The City of Tacoma's at Point Defiance wasn't high enough in the air to see all of it.

Have you seen the video of our confused old man POTUS walking away from AF-1 and wandering around the tarmac? Sad.

Sundown Syndrome?
