Writer’s Block * Open Thread *

I Got Nothin. I am looking at a blank page and nothing comes to mind. Nothing. Not fair to get brain freeze when I haven’t had the ice cream.

Donald Trump hasn’t been cooperating by saying something stupid for at least 15 minutes. I know, I know, just give it time. I think someone has managed to shut the Donald up for the time being. I don’t expect it to last but in the meantime no news from the Donald is good news for the Donald and I don’t like that.

Trump’s followers are usually good for something to write about. They seldom disappoint if you’re looking for someone who said something stupid. Well there is the fact that with the ongoing sexual harassment scandal going on at FOX – the Trumpanzees think Andrea Tantaros was fired for being Pro-Trump.

Somehow with all the Trump cultists at FOX they only got around to firing her? The one that accuses Aisle of sexually harassing her? Come on – this much stupid is pathetic. And only filled 2 paragraphs. Back to the keyboard.

I could write a few words about the primary here in Wisconsin today. Many of the Ryan haters are waiting with baited breath for him to get “Cantered”. Baited breath  is better than holding breath because it just isn’t happening.

Some haters insist we here in Wisconsin should vote for the nutty Nehlen just to rid the Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. I’m refuse to vote for someone I think is much worse than Ryan just to satisfy some Ryan hater. He’s not what I want but Nehlen is not what I want on high red wheels. Plus – face it Ryan haters – he hasn’t a chance.

Some Ryan haters are as delusional as Trumpanzees when they refuse to accept the reality that many voters, most voters, in Ryan’s district like him.

Hillary’s lies and more lies and some more lies are old news because once you know she’s a liar what’s the point of nit-picking about one more lie?  The pile of lies is so high you can’t see over it but she’s still in there tossing more on the pile.

Although one of my favorite writers, Thomas Sowell thinks that not only lies, but old lies matter. I am not ever going to dispute something like this with Dr. Sowell. A. Because I respect him so much. And B. because he’s so much smarter than I am and it’s never smart to tangle with someone better armed than you are.

I could give a quick History lesson but that’s preaching to the choir here. People at Rev Amy’s learn and know the truth so they don’t need my little lesson. Those that need it won’t read it. That’s the way is almost always goes. Still a refresher course never hurts.

Did I say Trump hadn’t said anything stupid in the past 15 minutes? Not that I’m aware of. But it seems he did do and say something stupid last week in Colorado. Maybe he was high on fumes from all those pot loving Coloradans.

It seem Don the Con, trying to show that he knew something about something boosts anti-fracking measure in Colorado. Once again when he opens his mouth and wanders aimlessly around an issue he is almost certain to say something cringe worthy to his party. That would be the party he joined a short time ago after being a Democrat for the rest of his life.

 The Olympics seem to be going well so long as you don’t get bitten by a Zika carrying mosquito or drink the water. Or participate in water sports. Then things might be a bit worrisome. 

Longtime closer Francisco Rodriguez, currently pitching for the Tigers, told ESPN that he contracted Zika virus this offseason while he was in his native Venezuela. He was laid up for two weeks with severe body aches, joint pain, headaches and a myriad of other symptoms. Rodriguez said it took two months before he ultimately felt like himself again. If Zika can affect an athlete, who is in far better condition than most of us this much misery – it isn’t anything I want near me.

The most feared possibility with Zika is Microcephaly. The CDC confirmed that the Zika virus does indeed cause microcephaly as well as a wide range of additional and severe fetal brain defects. Microcephaly is a rare nervous system disorder that causes a baby’s head to be small and not fully developed. The child’s brain stops growing as it should. This can happen while the baby is still in the mother’s womb or within the first few years of birth.

I don’t want to rain on any Olympic Parades but now with athletes and tourists from all over the world in Rio do you wonder when it’s over and they all come flying back to their native countries how many of them will bring some Zika surprises with them? Won’t this spread this virus all over the world? What price a Gold Medal then?

As for contaminated water? You couldn’t get me to do any water sports in Rio for all the Gold Medals anywhere.

On that nasty note I think I’ll depart and see what news you smart folks have to share. Funny how for someone that had nothing to say I used nearly 900 words to say it.

    I am quite unsure about these self driving cars. I don’t think I would want to own one. In this instance, the driver was blessed.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I have my concerns too. But then I see so many really bad drivers on the road, and that doesn’t even include the idiots with a cell phone glued to their ear and I wonder…

      • mcnorman Says:

        You are absolutely right. Is it more dangerous than the texters next you? I worry because they have not quite fixed the white problem that the computer may or may not sense. In the desert everything is whitewashed with the harsh sun so I suspect that the sensors would miss “seeing” those vehicles that are white.

        • kenoshamarge Says:

          The “white” problem can be fixed I’m sure. The stupid driver problem – not so much. There are always problems with new technology. It takes time to get everything working properly.

          I hope they get the problem under control soon. I would much rather a “self-driving” car was on the road with a texting idiot as a passenger.

    Dang, Marge – you’re”nothing” is mighty impressive!! You can keep writing this kind of “nothing” any time! 🙂

    Trump has already revised his tax plan to be more like the Democrats. He is going to charge the rich more. Because the rich aren’t paying enough already with the higher tax rates they have and paying the lion’s share of taxes in this country.

    Funny – I always thought that raising taxes thing was a Democrat move. Ahem: http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/08/politics/donald-trump-hillary-clinton-economic-plans/index.html

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      See I knew if we waited a little while he’d say something stupid. Funny how difficult it is to tell him from a Democrat isn’t it?

      Why is it windbags like Trump cannot seem to understand that a closed mouth gathers no foot? Could it have something to do with that Narcissist thing?

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        It truly is astonishing how many Dem positions he takes that his REPUBLICAN supporters accept just because it is TRUMP.

        Honestly, I am thankful I don’t understand how in the hell this can be, how he can even be a Rep much less the Rep NOMINEE. It just defies sanity.

        • kenoshamarge Says:

          There are many times in the last few years when I wondered if my whole life hadn’t become one long Senior Moment, but then people much younger than I am tell me they are living in the same reality.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Now that is sadly accurate…

      Listening to Steve Deace talk abt all the states – formerly red states – that are now going for Clinton. How so many groups that had voted Reps reliably are now going for Clinton including college educated women.

      Sigh. We warned them, we told them, they yelled at us, called us names, bullied and bludgeoned us, and EVERY SINGLE THING WE SAID WAS GOING TO HAPPEN IS HAPPENING. Every single thing.

      Just SMH…

      Perfect Image! Absolutely perfect.

      Guarding is absolutely correct. That photo of her having issues with stairs and needing help signify some major problems with that Jugular Venous Thrombosis. It has left permanent damage…vertigo and disequalibrium sound abourt right to me. The msm is very careful about what and how they film imo.

    you will love this one Marge.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Creative Minds are full of horse pucky!

      If Hulk saw Hillary he’d treat her like he treated Loki in the Avengers . After about a dozen quick body slams, like he did to Loki, and Hillary would be whimpering and perhaps not feeling quite so Goddess like.

  6. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    The Left is once again sanctifying a criminal who robbed and assaulted a store owner, then attacked, assaulted, tried to disarm, then charged, a police officer. That would be Michael Brown. Excellent piece by Ben Shapiro: http://www.dailywire.com/news/8216/left-celebrating-michael-brown-again-here-are-7-ben-shapiro

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I think the idea is to keep insisting that poor little Michael Brown, the gentle giant was a victim of a racist cop until it become common knowledge – as in another urban myth.

      Michael Brown was a bully and a thief and caused his own demise.

      The whole BLM movement is predicated on that lie. So to me anything that starts with a lie isn’t worth spit.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Exactly They conveniently ignore all of the facts around that case, even those put out by Obama’s DOJ saying it was a righteous shooting

        There were so many shenanigans around that whole thing, as the article points out, including witnesses being told to lie and threatened. Because that is how the Left rolls…

  10. piper Says:

    Well the ‘yuuuuuge silver tongued man ever’ misspeaks again. This idjit in his inarticulate way calls for someone to take out Hillary bec. she wants repeal of the 2nd amendment. Don’t know if he is crafty/sneaky or is learning disabled where his thoughts and words get jumbled up and out.

  11. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Seems like Obama may have committed an impeachable offense and a felony punishable by 20 yrs in prison when he gave money to Iran. In fact, he violated his own sanctions:

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      And if he did? The GOP hasn’t the guts to do anything about it and the DOJ hasn’t the integrity.

  14. piper Says:

    BTW – I’m so tired of the same old same old arguments – the republicans want to repeal Roe v Wade and the democrats want to repeal the 2nd amendment. Let’s focus on real issues affecting our country.

    Ben Shapiro does a great job in laying out the two major problems with Trump’s recent call to violence (seriously – this man is jus insane): http://www.dailywire.com/news/8239/two-big-problems-trump-joking-second-amendment-ben-shapiro

    • helenk3 Says:

      I still think trump is hillary’s trojan horse. just running to cause disruption in the republican party. With all her issues that is the only way she could win.

  17. helenk3 Says:

    https://pjmedia.com/trending/2016/08/09/report-fiorina-angling-for-reince-priebus-job/

    she can’t be any worse and might be a whole lot better

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      She will have to be a party loyalist because that’s the job. I still think it can be done with some integrity. Priebus didn’t manage that. Neither did DWS for the Dems. If she should get it we will know if she really is the person we thought her to be. If she is my guess is the PTB won’t allow it.

    Hillary not really good at defending females of any age

  21. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    “Socialist” Bernie Sanders just purchased his THIRD home, a “modest” (that’s what Vanity Fair called it) $600,000 lakefront home. This highlights the sheer hypocrisy of Socialists – “for THEE, not for ME!!!” Here’s the link: http://dailycaller.com/2016/08/09/bernie-sanders-just-paid-an-unbelievable-amount-of-money-for-a-summer-vacation-home/

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Was $600,000.00 the price of his endorsing Hillary?

      Plus it’s better than being found dead with a gun in hand and proclaimed a “suicide”.

    • mcnorman Says:

      Absolutely says what Bernie is really all about. His supporters will either not be happy that they were duped or they will try to find any reason to support his hypocrisy.
