Women of NASA During Apollo: Poppy Northcutt

Whether you are good at some career has nothing to do with your gender or the color of your skin or the community you grew up in or the language you speak at home or your grandmother’s religion… this is the American Dream, that you succeed on the basis of your efforts!

Blame/Credit Confusion

Blame/Credit Confusion

This one popped up in my feed:

I love Donald Trump. And, I am not afraid to admit it. I don’t always agree with him. 20 percent of the time, I disagree with him. But, 80 percent of the time, I agree with him. I only agreed with Barack Obama 20 percent of the time. 80 percent of the time I was disgusted and appalled by his decisions and positions. He was the worst president in my entire lifetime. Why would I vote for a repeat of his administration? That would be a really stupid thing to do. I would be voting for everyone in Central Florida to go back to massive unemployment and massive underemployment and massive home foreclosures. I am not going to vote for that. I am extremely glad to be done with the Obama years. They were painful, miserable, unhappy years for many, many people in Central Florida. Why would anyone vote to go back to that?

My response:

Nina, I guess you forgot the economic situation Obama inherited from Bush II in 2008, which makes your assertion that the current good economy has anything to do with Trump, understandable. I see a pattern of mistaken blame/credit. You’ve been successfully gaslighted by cult45.

Surprising Numbers Stepping on the Scale After a Few Years

2019-06-14 jbustillos weigh-in

In my many travels yesterday, I picked up a few things that hadn’t survived the move last summer or the move from Florida. One of the items was a weight-scale. Tracking my weight had been important following my illness in 2012-2014, but it just hadn’t registered these past few years. So I picked one up yesterday, and stepped on the scale this morning.

Seeing this pos, I needed to make the following comment:

“Biblical” meaning that we can use this person for our purposes to promote anti-abortion/pro-theocracy agendas, even though there hasn’t been a moment in this person’s life when the Christian message of forgiveness, reconciliation and reform has been an active principal of action. No, this is bullshit in the name of a bankrupt religious agenda. It’s all built on lies and ungodliness.

Daily Random Sh*t: The One Boasting To Have The Best Words

Anyone claiming expertise in so many areas would be comical if it weren’t for the millions of idiots who fell for his unfounded and delusional boasts. There are plenty of idiots in the world who don’t know that they are idiots. The horror is when we choose to believe and empower these idiots. Wake up MAGA supporters, whatever good you believed in has been stolen from you and sold for the vanity of one delusional idiot.

DailyRandomSh*t: “He Looked at Me Funny”

A quote from one of my kindergarten classes or Huckabee-Sanders explaining the last press-briefing kerfuffle? So the Reality-TV “president,” who is 100% dependent on being the constant first story in the 24-hour news cycle, has another plan to control the press… Wait for it… New rules of conduct for journalists covering the White House!

New Rules?! If “civility” becomes part of the new rules, how long before Cadet Bone Spurs get kicked out for name calling and his bad behavior? He claims to be everyone’s president, but only want to talk to those who like him or agree with him… that’s not how it works, kids. Time to turn off the sound and let “his base” stew in their own juices of nastiness. #Watch45WithTheSoundOff #ItIsWhatHeDoesNotWhatHeSays #ItIsNotNewsIfItIsTheSameOldLies #ContinueToResist
