Don't look if you can't laugh about the fix we are in

They really made a bad mistake in Britain, no doubt about it, the consequences are rippling across the world. Take a few seconds if you can and imagine what would happen if we elected the Donald.
I'm guessing at the least he will make a bad mistake a day.

So - we gotta stay vigilant because the more we laugh at him, the worse he will do.

Just to re-cap Trey Goudy: Let's just have a nice cup of tea.

Trump’s Bid to Become Born-Again Fails as Jesus Turns Down Friend Request —tells Borowitz

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—The billionaire Donald J. Trump’s bid to become a born-again Christian failed over the weekend after Jesus Christ turned down his friend request, campaign officials have acknowledged.
Jesus, who has not generally been active on Facebook, made a rare appearance on the social network on Monday to announce his decision to ignore the presumptive Republican nominee’s request for a personal relationship with him.

In a brief post, Jesus offered the following explanation: “Just everything.”

The turndown from Jesus Christ, the inspiration behind one of the world’s most prominent religions, caps what has been a tough month for the Trump campaign.

Privately, campaign staffers fretted that the candidate would pen a disparaging tweet about Jesus, which might alienate evangelical voters in key battleground states.

But, at a rally in Pennsylvania, Trump made no reference to Jesus, and instead touted endorsements he had received from Gary Busey, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Joe (the Plumber) Wurzelbacher.


Iphone was all that was handy: Let me tell you about the father of the Empire State Building

In Winston-Salem NC, the RJReynolds Building is the fore runner of the Empire State Building. Same Architect. Same look. Just smaller. For us it was the tallest for a long time, and we were proud of it.
I learned that the staff of the Empire State Building to this day sends a father's day card to the staff at the RJR Building in my town.

Our building, after years of being vacant and guarded by armed watchmen has been inaccessible to the public. But now it has been sold, remodeled and turned into a very recently opened hotel, a restaurant and bar, condos, and apartments.
The Art deco was preserved, restored and refinished.

My kids took me to the restaurant last night for my birthday, and all but put blinders on me about where we were going.

All I can say is that I did not have a camera, and as much as I love art deco I was in the right place for my eyes to get a bit overflowing and my cheeks to get dewy. And I don't even cry (anymore)

It was a memorable night.

You guys know me, I will be back in there and take some real photos. I don't ask permission well, but when it comes to begging forgiveness, I'm a real champ.

The entrance of the building- constructed of Benedict Metal: an alloy of copper, tin, lead, zinc and nickel. It is no longer made.

If Trump Quits is it a TREXIT?

It's in Scotland, and the Donald is off to go get some

Donald Trump in his speech today acted out one of my favorite jokes

as I listened to him it came back to me, and I wonder if you heard it as well.

A politician arrives in an African village. He is coming off the small landing strip and as he steps down from the airplane’s stairway he is welcomed by the elder and is led to a podium where he starts his speech where he promises 2 chickens in every pot and the crowd howls “Oomgowa, Oomgowa”.

Then he promises the a cart in front of every hut, and they roar “Oomgowa, Oomgowa” with ferocity, after that comes a promise of a horse in front of each cart, and the villagers wave their arms in every increasing howls of “Oomgowa, Oomgowa” while waving their arms in what seems like a salute.

At the end of his speech the politician turns to the elder, who takes his elbow to lead him away and who says to him with a twinkle in his eye: “Careful, your Lordship don’t step in the Oomgowa”.

Hard to keep my eyes open waiting for Seth Myers' hilarity. But here is proof of his brilliance.

It's about 4 min, worth suffering through a short ad.
