My meanderings about politics, LGBTQ COMMUNITY, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
As fortunate to get tickets to go see Real Time with Bill Maher tonight. it’s located at the CBS studios in the heart of Hollywood and is one of the more iconic buildings here in Los Angeles.
He started off of a one-on-one talk with Salman Rushdie he was talking about his new book Quiote. it’s a modern version of Don Quixote that revolves around the presidency of Donald Trump. The magic of this book is the fact that Donald Trump although the main character is never mentioned. there are other parts of the book which seemed really interesting including the fact that unfortunately Salman rushdie’s sister was killed by opiate overdose. In the book he uses strippers on poles dancing to lure doctors in. turns out all they needed was about $30,000 to lure doctors in to giving out these deadly drugs.
The panel discussion was lively. One of the panelists got booed several times, Noah Rothman is no virgin to my boose here in my apartment while he’s doing his thing on MSNBC. When he said that there were good scientists on both sides of climate change the room erupted. Interesting Lee the former head of the EPA under President Obama was there and she was a great foiled for him. I thought that Bill Maher was office game but maybe because I was watching it live. I watch him religiously every Friday night and I think now that Game of Thrones is gone it’s the only reason I keep HBO.
I was truly looking forward to seeing Barney Franks who has been one of my heroes for decades now. I guess my politics have moved away from his because I did not agree with many of the things that he said. He’s against the impeachment and thinks that it’s going to give the unmentionable one in the oval Office a second term. I don’t think so
I got home at about 10 p.m. and got to watch the rerun of Lawrence O’Donnell telling us that now there has been a Wall Street journal report that says that Donald Trump has been squirreling away all of the conversations he’s had with Russia and Saudi Arabia in a private server meant for only the most highly classified information our country has. Why would he care to Hide these conversations when he has conversations with the under hundred and ninety-three countries of the world all the time? Inquiring minds want to know.
Inquiring minds want to know.
if you live in Los Angeles or ever get a chance to come make sure to get tickets to go see Bill Maher, it’s well worth it.
First and foremost I am in no way endorsing the Guinness World records people. They are obviously whores whoare blocked by dictators so they can inflate their own egos. Their PR machine is up and oiled because I posted something on Twitter regarding this and within two minutes of my posting I got this PR piece of crap. and if they don’t mention the fact that they were on site and Saudi Arabia for the world’s largest drum event where the killer of American journalistwas glorified with a drone portrait of himself in the night sky. Or that they have endorsed dictator Berdimuhamedov who has kept his people enslaved for years. This is a company that is gone afoul.
They told John Oliver that because of the nature of their company being family-oriented they would not appear on his show. Family-oriented? Dictators? That’s how you see yourselves then shame on you.
Their attached press release will show you how little they are defending themselves because you can’t defend the undefendable.
I applaud John Oliver 4 his unending pursuit of the truth while still making us laugh out loud. he puts dictators in their place something that it seems Guinness World records doesn’t know how to do.
Purdue Pharma has literally hundreds of thousands of people’s blood on their hands. The sorrow that they have caused for the counselors people in our country who have become addicted and some of whom have died is unmeasurable.
Just in case you don’t know who they are they are the marketers and creators of Oxycodone. Oxy has even permeated my life. My best friend, or former best friend, was addicted to this drug and stole money from me while I was in the intensive Care Unit at Mount Sinai hospital in Miami Beach. This is a friend that I had known for 39 years. That’s what drugs do.
So I join John Oliver in the Manning that’s galleries and museums across the country remove the Sackler name from there positions of Honor and remind people that the Sackler name is covered in blood.
Let’s be honest, we have an incompetent in the White House.
He doesn’t understand government or its need to exist.
He doesn’t understand America’s place in the world or why we need to maintain it.
He doesn’t understand that this is one World with one ecology and we are at the biggest wrecker of the environment and we need to address that but again he doesn’t understand.
He doesn’t seem to have a big grasp of anything other than his ego.
So when you hear veteran journalist like Bob Woodward who covered nine presidents say that he was shocked by something that the Tangerine nightmare said you need to listen. I watched an interview on Bill Maher and it’s telling that even Bob Woodward has temptations about where our country is going under the leadership of this man.
On the same program, Bret Stephens, who used to work for the Wall Street journal now who works for the New York Times and is no longer Republican was on. I remember the days that I would yell at the TV when Brett Stevens was on but Trump has made those go away. Bret Stephens openly said that he is worried that on January 20th 2021 we’re not going to see an orderly exit from the White House if Trump is voted out. I agree with him. And that’s chilling.
This video shows why John Oliver is so effective. I commend this statement that showed before the beginning of the show. Unfortunately that the line of people you saw did not include any gay people. Because that hospital in Orlando does not allow blood from gay people. Even though all blood has to be tested for HIV, Florida is so dumb ass backwards that still does not take blood from gay people. And you know that’s the kind of thinking that makes people think that it’s ok to shoot gay people or Mexican people or black people or any slash people you want to think about. When I first got to France, as a very little boy, after having lived in Houston Texas in the early sixties I saw a black boy in my class. I came home and told my dad and he told me son when you cut yourself you’re ready and when he cuts himself he’s ready. We’re all the same inside. Tonight I pray for all of those who were killed and hurt and especially their families who now will have an empty spot in their heart for ever because of some madman’s crazy mindset. And I hope the next time I see John Oliver I’ll actually be able to laugh.
