Setting Trump down

Ford fact checks Trump: We will be here forever

Ford has a message to Donald Trump: We're not going anywhere.

The automaker quickly shot down Donald Trump's latest hyperbolic claim, made on Fox News Thursday, that Ford plans to "fire all its employees in the United States" as part of a plan to build a plant in Mexico.
Ford said there will be zero job losses in the U.S. as a result of the new plant in Mexico. The Wayne, Michigan, plant that now builds the Focus and C-Max that will move to Mexico will instead start building other models -- probably the new Ford Bronco SUV and Ranger small pickup.

And the Trump lies continue


After Birth

We investigate Donald Trump's claim that the conspiracy theory about Barack Obama not being born in the U.S. originated inside Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign.


Trump supporters are Sick puppies

Stop Pretending You Don’t Know Why People Hate Hillary Clinton

Is it because of partisanship?
Or a hard-fought primary?
Maybe, NBC once suggested, it’s because “she’s not a train wreck.”
Funny how the answers seem to be everything but the obvious.
We go on endlessly about how “untrustworthy” she is, while fact checkers rank her as the second-most honest prominent politician in the country. (And her opponent as by far the least.)
We say that she has trouble with transparency, while her opponent refuses to release his taxes and the current administration sets records for secrecy.
We decry her ties to corporations and the financial industry, while supporting awalking tax shelter or mourning the exit of a president whose re-election was funded by a record-shattering Wall Street haul.
We list so very many explanations, all of them complete bullshit.

Jon Stewart takes over 'Late Show,' rips RNC

‘I see you and I see your bullsh*t!’: Jon Stewart takes over Stephen Colbert’s show to deliver scathing rant

A shaggy dog goes to the butchers

As a butcher is shooing a dog from his shop, he sees $20 and a note in the dog's mouth,
reading: "10 lamb chops, please."  Amazed, he takes the money, puts a bag of chops
in the dog's mouth, and quickly closes the shop.

He follows the dog and watches him wait for a green light,
look both ways, and trot across the road to a bus-stop.

The dog checks the timetable and sits on the bench.

When a bus arrives, he walks around to the front and looks
at the number, then boards the bus.

The butcher follows, dumbstruck. As the bus travels
out into the suburbs, the dog takes in the scenery.

After a while he stands on his back paws to push the "stop" bell,
and then the butcher follows him off.

The dog runs up to a house and drops his bag on the step. He barks repeatedly.

No answer.
He goes back down the path, takes a big run, and throws himself
-Whap!- against the door. He does this again & again.

No answer.
So he jumps on a wall, walks around the garden, barks repeatedly at
a window, jumps off, and waits at the front door. Eventually, a small
guy opens it and starts cursing and shouting at the dog.

The butcher runs up screams at the guy: "What the hell are you doing?
This dog's a genius!"

The owner responds, "Genius, my arse.
It's the second time this week he's forgotten his key!"

Thanks Ivan

You HAVE to read this one The Candy With The Little Hole

The Candy With The Little Hole 
This should make you smile. You have to love little kids. 

The children began to identify the flavors by their color:

Orange ...............Orange

Finally the teacher gave them all 
HONEY lifesavers. 
None of the children could identify the taste.

The teacher said, "I will give you all a clue. It's what your Mother may sometimes call your father."

One little girl looked up in horror, spit her lifesaver out and yelled, "Oh my God! They're ass-holes!"
The teacher had to leave the room.

 Thanks Norman

Your Republican Senate working against Americans

BREAKING: Republicans Move To Shut Down Government For A Sick Reason

The Senate on Tuesday failed to pass a short-term spending bill to keep the government funded as Mitch McConnell and other Republicans insisted on keeping corporate political funding hidden from voters and denying aid to the beleaguered residents of Flint, MI. Senators have been working in recent days on hammering out a short-term funding bill known as a continuing resolution that would fund the government until December 9 at the least. Absent such an agreement, the federal government will run out of money and shut down in three days on October 1.
The intransigence of Senate Republicans on the issues of corporate financing and aid to Flint, however, have prevented the bill from passing as the Senate shot down a GOP continuing resolution today by a 55-45 vote. The first sticking point is a rider that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has insisted on adding to the bill and which would block the Securities and Exchange Committee (SEC) from requiring publicly-traded corporations to disclose their political spending.

"Bernard the Roughneck" Knows Jackshit about Honesty but has a BA in Political Science

"Naturally, such statements were highly controversial, prompting a vigorous back-and-forth on social media between supporters and detractors of the views expressed by Bernard -- who turns out to be Neal Bernard Hancock, a graduate of Quebec's English-language Bishop's University, from which he has a degree in media and communications, as well as an oil patch worker"

Bernard the Roughneck in his own words: Neal Bernard Hancock responds to his critics

Tout le monde political Alberta is wondering about "Bernard the Roughneck," the young man in hard hat and boiler suit who appeared on Parliament Hill last Wednesday with what appeared to be streaks of grime on his face to lash the Trudeau Government for, as he put it, listening to the wrong people about the future of Canada's oil patch.
Describing himself as "just an average roughneck," Bernard the Roughneck went on to state: "I'm not a guy from Calgary in a suit. I'm not a guy who's knowledgeable about public policy or the processes that go on in buildings like this. I'm a roughneck…" Mainstream mediaalmost swooned.

Let’s join the rest of the world in dumping FPP elections

Beware of the rich parasites

Is God great or what!?!

She bowed her head and asked God to send her some help.

Within 5 minutes a beat-up old motorcycle pulled up, driven by a bearded man who was wearing an old biker skull rag. He got off of his cycle and asked if he could help. She said: "Yes, my daughter is sick.
I've locked my keys in my car. I must get home. Please, can you use this hanger to unlock my car?"
He said, "Sure." He walked over to the car, and in less than a minute, the car door was open. She hugged the man and through tears, softly said,

"Thank you, God, for sending me such a very nice man."

The man heard her little prayer and replied, "lady, I am not a nice man. I just got out of prison yesterday;
I was in prison for car theft." The woman hugged the man again, sobbing,

"Oh, thank you, God! You even sent me a professional."

Is God great or what!?!

Remembering The Clothesline


And in lots of places they are illegal. 
It's the poem at the end that's the best!!!


Remembering Mom's Clothesline
There is one thing that's left out. 
We had a long wooden pole (clothes pole) that was used to push the clotheslines up 
so that longer items (sheets/pants/etc.) didn't brush the ground and get dirty. 
I can hear my mother now...
THE BASIC RULES FOR CLOTHESLINES: (If you don't even know what clotheslines are, better skip this.)

1. You had to hang the socks by the toes... NOT the top. 
2. You hung pants by the BOTTOM/cuffs... NOT the waistbands. 
3. You had to WASH the clothesline(s) before hanging any clothes - 
walk the entire length of each line with a damp cloth around the lines.
4. You had to hang the clothes in a certain order, and always hang "whites" with "whites," 
and hang them first.
5. You NEVER hung a shirt by the shoulders - always by the tail! 
What would the neighbors think?
6. Wash day on a Monday! NEVER hang clothes on the weekend, 
or on Sunday, for Heaven's sake!
7. Hang the sheets and towels on the OUTSIDE lines so you could 
hide your "unmentionables" in the middle (perverts & busybodies, y'know!)

8. It didn't matter if it was sub-zero weather... clothes would "freeze-dry."

9. ALWAYS gather the clothes pins when taking down dry clothes! 
Pins left on the lines were "tacky"!

10. If you were efficient, you would line the clothes up so that each item 
did not need two clothes pins, but shared one of the clothes pins with the next washed item.
11. Clothes off of the line before dinner time, neatly folded in the clothes basket, 
and ready to be ironed.  IRONED??!! Well, that's a whole OTHER subject!

And now a POEM...
A clothesline was a news forecast, To neighbors passing by,
There were no secrets you could keep, When clothes were hung to dry.
It also was a friendly link, For neighbors always knew
If company had stopped on by, To spend a night or two.

For then you'd see the "fancy sheets", And towels upon the line;
You'd see the "company table cloths", With intricate designs.
The line announced a baby's birth, From folks who lived inside,
As brand new infant clothes were hung, So carefully with pride!

The ages of the children could, So readily be known
By watching how the sizes changed, You'd know how much they'd grown!
It also told when illness struck, As extra sheets were hung;
Then nightclothes, and a bathrobe too, Haphazardly were strung.

It also said, "On vacation now", When lines hung limp and bare.
It told, "We're back!" when full lines sagged, With not an inch to spare!
New folks in town were scorned upon, If wash was dingy and gray,
As neighbors carefully raised their brows, And looked the other way.

But clotheslines now are of the past, For dryers make work much less.
Now what goes on inside a home, Is anybody's guess!
I really miss that way of life, It was a friendly sign
When neighbors knew each other best... By what hung on the line.

Thanks Maria
