Friday, January 22, 2021 – DAY 3 of the Biden-Harris first term
JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS WON THE 2020 ELECTION!

EsOTETvXMAIICaL

“GOOD MORNING AMERICA, HOW ARE YOU?”

11:30am: Well, GOOD MORNING! It’s DAY 3 of the Biden-Harris first term.
TRUMP CAN’T KILL US ALL TODAY! OR TOMORROW! OR EVER!
There is a huge sense of relief knowing there is a sane man with his finger on the Nuclear Football! He won’t kill us on whim, or during a narcissistic psychopathic paranoid episode, or after a drug-fueled night of hookers and blow.
There is a huge sense of relief knowing that there is a Federal Plan to contain the CoronaVirus after ONE YEAR OF GENOCIDE! The GOP Traitors NEVER HAD A PLAN! They sold stock and did shady deals for PPE and respirators, and THE VACCINE!
TOTAL FAILURE THAT COSTS TENS OF THOUSANDS OF US CITIZENS THEIR LIVES!

We spent the night finishing and publishing our previous Blog Post, and setting this Blog Post up. We started just after midnight, then we had a cup of espresso after 6:00am and fell asleep for a few hours. The dogs got fed and went outside. We got the newspapers and the mail.
We drank another cup of espresso, spent an hour on TWITTER sending out “Traitor” memes, and now were recapping the morning. We might be getting hungry….
DRINK COFFEE. DRINK WATER. (It’s a running theme now)


MORE “BERNIE MITTENS” MEMES from last night:

How it started. How it’s going.
Reverend Raphael Warnock was arrested by US Capitol Police
during a peaceful BlackLivesMatter protest in the Senate Building last year.
Today they escorted the Senator from Georgia to his new offices.

The Senate confirmed Lloyd Austin 93-2 as the next Secretary of Defense, making him the first African-American to head the Pentagon. The two “NO” votes were Josh Hawley and Mike Lee.

President Joe Biden signed Executive Orders and just made a fine speech.
Sen Chuck Shumer gave McConnell the finger. The Impeachment Trial will start Tuesday.

Congress reintroduced a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.

President Joe Biden nominated Vivek H. Murthy, the surgeon general under President Barack Obama, to be the nation’s new surgeon general. (see below for more about the doctors)

3:15pm: We have HOPE that there will be JUSTICE.

Nancy Pelosi will send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate on Monday.
THE TRIAL OF DONALD JOHN TRUMP WILL BEGIN ON FEBRUARY 8, 2021.
Senator Chuck Schumer told Mitch McConnell “I’m the Captain now.”

The Trump campaign paid more than $2.7million to persons and firms involved in organizing the Trump January 6th “Stop The Steal” Rally and violent attack on the US Capitol, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

5:50pm: FRIDAY! GOOD SHABBOS!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
We just drank another cup of espresso.
We are watching Dr. Fauci on MSNBC Rachel Maddow’s show.
Dr. Fauci: “I’ve been wanting to come on your show for months and months. You’ve been asking me to come on your show for months and months and it just got blocked. I mean, let’s call it what it is, it just got blocked.”
120565185_4341863679239986_8253701871535877008_n
Not just “refreshing” to hear the TRUTH, it’s such a relief.
NOW THERE IS A PLAN!
NOW THERE IS AN EMERGENCY RESPONSE!
NOW THERE IS SCIENCE AND INTELLIGENCE AND EXPERIENCE!
THERE ARE HEALTH EXPERTS IN CHARGE! (NOT POLITICIANS)
STOPPING THE SPREAD AND CONTAINMENT ARE NOW REAL OBJECTIVES!

And then Tucker has his bro Adam “it’s projection” Carolla on as a guest talking head.

410000+ REPORTED US DEATHS as of today. The carnage is nowhere near over!
THESE FEDERAL OFFICIALS AND VICE-PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE MUST BE INVESTIGATED, ARRESTED, AND PROSECUTED! GENOCIDE IS A CRIME!
ALEX AZAR, DEBORAH BIRX, JEROME ADAMS AND ROBERT REDFIELD FAILED!
No Tracking, No Testing, No Plan, No PPE, No Ventilators, No Vaccines, No response.
They allowed the Trump Hydroxycloroquine “Pump and Dump” Con to continue.
They allowed the “Anti-Mask” politics to continue. They supported and lied for Trump.

Alex Azar Jr., the politician, attorney and former pharmaceutical executive, who served as Secretary of Health and Human Services, resigned in disgrace on January 12th.
Deborah Birx retired today. She is no longer part of the Government COVID-19 team.
1. She lied.
2. She amplified Trump’s lies. SHE REPEATED TRUMP’S LIES.
3. She presided over 410,000+ DEAD AMERICANS. GENOCIDE.
3. She PRAISED Trump while he killed us and lied.
US Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams resigned after receiving President (elect) Joe Biden’s request early Wednesday. And dozens of Trump health department appointees also resigned.
Robert Redfiled resigned yesterday and is under investigation for destroying e-mail…..
Stephen Hahn the Trump Commissioner of Food and Drugs, head of the Food and Drug Administration, also resigned. Janet Woodcock was named Acting Commissioner of the FDA by President Joe Biden on January 20, 2021

And Mike Pence. Pence knew. He covered it up for Trump. He lied for Trump. HE IS GUILTY!
FOUR HUNDRED TEN THOUSAND HUMAN BEINGS IN THIS COUNTRY ARE DEAD!

– Trump tried to extort foreign leaders into smearing President Joe Biden – He was Impeached by Congress twice for the Ukraine scandal. And he tried and used the same type of “Quid Pro Quo” with Turkey, other countries in the Middle East, and other foreign leaders.
– Trump tried to sabotage the United States Postal Service with Louis DeJoy and the Board of Governors and interfere with the 2020 election and stop mail-in voting during a pandemic.
– After losing the 2020 election, Trump attempted a coup at the DOJ to overturn the results with two chairs of the Federalist Society practice groups: John Eastman and Jeffrey Clark.
– When that failed, Trump incited a violent attack on the US Capitol that killed a US Capitol Police Officer (and 3 Trump insurrectionists), and an attempted coup against Congress to interfere with the counting of the Electoral College Votes, Murder VP Pence and Members of Congress. Trump watched it on television from The White House.

Baseball Hall of Famer Henry Louis “Hank” Aaron passed away today at the age of 86.
He stomped on the Terra! And he was always humble.
May the Four Winds blow him safely home.

The (Milwaukee and) Atlanta Braves’ “Hammering Hank” the “home run king” broke Babe Ruth’s record for most career Home Runs on April 8, 1974, “going yard” for #715 on a pitch from Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Al Downing. Hank Aaron still holds the record for runs batted in with 2,297 and total base hits with 6,856.
On August 1, 1982, Aaron was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President George W. Bush.
He was inducted as a Georgia Trustee by the Georgia Historical Society in 2010.

Hank Aaron

FILE – In this April 8, 1974, file photo, Atlanta Braves’ Hank Aaron holds aloft the ball he hit for his 715th career home in Atlanta. Hank Aaron, who endured racist threats with stoic dignity during his pursuit of Babe Ruth but went on to break the career home run record in the pre-steroids era, died early Friday, Jan. 22, 2021. He was 86. The Atlanta Braves said Aaron died peacefully in his sleep. No cause of death was given. (AP Photo, File)


So, I posted this a year ago…..
And little did I know,
we wouldn’t leave the house again, or go and see a show,
we wouldn’t be eating’ out, or hanging with our friends,
just staying home and dining in, the boredom never ends.
And I just wrote a little poem that I will share with you,
and hope that someday very soon this will again be true:

Be thankful. Be grateful.
Be kind to each other – love one another – support everyone*.
Peace and Love! ❤️

TWO MORE DAYS! TWO MORE DAYS!
DONALD TRUMP REMAINS A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO THE WORLD!

“Free at last, Free at last, Thank G-d almighty we are free at last.”

NOTE: Today, on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, Trump’s Insurrection has closed down Washington DC and prevented access to the MLK Memorial on the National Mall. And all types of holiday events, activities, picnics, and/or parades have been affected (cancelled) by Trump’s Out-of-Control CoronaVirus Pandemic. Trump never conceded the election. Trump will not attend the inauguration and will fly to Florida tomorrow. Trump has not called Joe Biden.

DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.  
January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968

Martin-Luther-King-Jr.-Day

4:45pm: Recapping MLK Day.
We woke up really early AM and we were awake until morning.
We drank a cup of espresso  and ate a toasted croissant.
DRINK COFFEE. DRINK WATER.
The dogs went outside, got fed and went outside.
We got the newspapers and the mail.
The housekeeper came and cleaned and we isolated in the Home Office.
We took a nap. We woke up, drank another cup of espresso and ate another toasted croissant, and took the dogs outside again. And we watched too much news today.
And we took the dogs outside again. It was a beautiful summer day in January!

FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK

And now it’s 5:00pm. TWO MORE DAYS. Just two more days.
We fed the dogs their supper and went outside again.
And we are placing an order for dinner from CPK – California Pizza Kitchen.

On The Menu: Southwest BBQ Chicken salad with avocado and a pepperoni pizza.
Cran-Raspberry-Orange juice and water to drink.

TO BE CONTINUED….

It’s no accident that:
You learned about Helen Keller instead of W.E.B. DuBois
You learned about the Watts and L.A. Riots, but not Tulsa or Wilmington.
You learned that George Washington’s dentures were made from wood, rather than the teeth from slaves.
You learned about black ghettos, but not about Black Wall Street.
You learned about the New Deal, but not “red lining.”
You learned about Tommie Smith’s fist in the air at the 1968 Olympics, but not that he was sent home the next day and stripped of his medals.
You learned about “black crime,” but white criminals were never lumped together and discussed in terms of their race.
You learned about “states rights” as the cause of the Civil War, but not that slavery was mentioned 80 times in the articles of secession.
Privilege is having history rewritten so that you don’t have to acknowledge uncomfortable facts.
Racism is perpetuated by people who refuse to learn or acknowledge this reality.
You have a choice.

Trump was rebuked by the Episcopalian Church yesterday and the Catholic Church today. He used the Episcopalian Church and “a bible” and the Pope John Paul II Statue for partisan politics and a Photo Op today.

STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!

We did have to venture out and leave the house today to go to the doctor.
We worked out the telephone appointment problem and talked to a doctor on the phone yesterday. We scheduled an in-person appointment after we spoke. We drove over to the office at 1:00pm today and saw the doctor and had blood drawn at the lab.
SO MUCH BETTER THAN OUR LAST VISIT TO THE DOCTOR (at the beginning of March).
We parked, and we were screened by a ten of nurses as we entered the lobby of the building. They checked our temperature and asked us questions, and then we got a sticker! We rode up the elevator alone. We were in the huge waiting room with only one other person and the administrative person (and there was a plexiglass wall between us). We were greeted by the nurse, blood pressure, temp, weight, Everything Was Great!
We spent 30 minutes with the doctor, and had a visual and then a physical exam. We talked and it was so much better than the last visit with our regular doctor. He was out of the office all week, so they cancelled our phone appointment with him, and it turned out to be a great thing! So we went to the lab and there was only one other person there with us and the nurse/lab tech. She checked us in and then drew 6 vials of blood. We didn’t eat all day, no food, no drink, our fast starting at midnight, and we only drank water until after our lab appointment.

The Doctor’s Office

NOTE: We really weren’t prepared for how many people were out and driving around at 1:00pm in the afternoon today! We drove on the 405 and the 101 freeways for the first time in a long time. There was actual traffic and businesses were OPEN. Many had nice big new banners to advertise the fact that they were OPEN. And we drove into Van Nuys and saw some of the damage after our appointment. A lot of graffiti, merchants cleaning up and boarding up, and today most merchants with plate glass windows who hadn’t been boarded up, were boarding up their storefronts, and not taking any chances.
The Police can’t protect you or your property when they are busy somewhere else.

It must suck to know you’re going to jail tonight…

They blocked off Van Ness (and a lot of other streets after 7pm and trapped the curfew breakers. Some ran onto the roof. Anyone still on the street is being arrested now and the vehicles will be impounded. LAPD is not playing tonight.

Screen Shot 2020-06-02 at 20.30.35

Waiting on the roof to be arrested….

LAPD SWAT on the rooftop and everyone goes to lockup.
They cut away for the actual rooftop raid…
MEDIA is working with LAPD so you don’t see the actual police work, just a big show of force. And the media helicopters either keep losing their signal or they are blackingout their picture. One air reporter called it the “TV Wall” – so there is censorship happening.

Wednesday, June 3, 2020

6:10pm: We have not slept.

We made some food. You’ve heard of “pigs in a blanket”?
Well we made “Hogs in a Comforter” with hot dogs and tube biscuits.
101843681_3715673915125814_3303259751080525824_o

 

We took a bath. A REAL BATH. A nice long bath.
101821248_3715671895126016_6325387049092251648_o

We drank some water, gatorade, and cran-raspberry-orange juice.

7:30am: FUCK THE NETWORK MORNING NEWS!
And then there were happy smiley full of shit jerkoffs.
Everything is not okay. Happy moments from the protest marches.
Nevermind the Police Brutality or lack of Police response to the looting.
ARREST THE LOOTERS NOT THE PROTESTERS!
AND THEN WE WON’T NEED A CURFEW TO CONTROL THE POPULATION!
BUT THAT IS THE ONLY “SOCIAL DISTANCING” ANYONE IS TALKING ABOUT!
HOLY SHIT! THERE IS A CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC,
IT IS SPREADING, IT KILLS PEOPLE, AND THERE IS NO CURE!
So we turned to CNN’s talking heads and “on the scene” reporters,
and they are debating whether the military should be involved.

The dogs were fed breakfast and supper. We got the newspapers and the mail.
We scooped the dog poop and groomed the Little Boy and the Little Girl.
We did laundry.

There was a 5.5 magnitude earthquake near Ridgecrest, California. We laid down to nap and fell asleep, and we didn’t wake up until after it happened. And then we checked Facebook and everyone had posted about it.

Accident! Just before 10pm,
LAPD cruiser T-Boned a Tow Truck at full speed and 8 people were injured, 2 critically. They needed the “jaws of life” to get the officer in the passenger seat out of the car.

Thursday, June 4, 2020 LAS VEGAS RE-OPENS TODAY!

The D Hotel and Casino Las and Golden Gate Casino in Las Vegas opened at midnight! Other hotel and casinos will also open for business this week. “Some casinos will have curbside pickup, where you can just drop off your money without going inside.”

Sometimes you need three spicy beef tacos at one in the morning.
On The Menu: 4 spicy beef soft tacos
100957985_3717960854897120_77552764174991360_n

And we eventually finally fell asleep. We have not been sleeping, and when we do, we are not sleeping well with good reasons.

10:30am: We fed the dogs and went outside. We got the newspapers and brought in the trashcans. We are doing another load of laundry. And we are drinking an iced espresso.

Brunch at 1:00pm!
On The Menu:
 Scrambled eggs, bacon, a quesadilla, with orange juice and an iced espresso to drink.
101700880_3720185648007974_1017492028893691904_o

We took a short nap.

Dinner at 10pm.
On The Menu: NY Steak, broccoli, mini-croissants, and a mango nectar drink
101683734_3720414374651768_5152055301549064192_o

And we ate, surfed the interweb, and fell asleep for a little while, and woke up again after midnight and then we were up all night on the interweb retweeting and blogging….
so it’s actually Friday at 5:45am now.

NOTE: A jet just flew over the house! 5:45am arrival, after almost no air traffic for two months. We also saw a couple private jets departing for parts unknown yesterday. Probably “high-rollers” going to Las Vegas since the hotel owners launched a huge public relations campaign about the re-opening of the casinos.

Summer in Los Angeles! ‘Tis the Season for Hot Pursuits & Car Chases!

Summer in Los Angeles! ‘Tis the Season for Hot Pursuits & Car Chases!

Yesterday there were two car chases involving the Los Angeles Police Department within an hour. The first was only broadcast for a little while, but was KRAZY out of control.  He was driving like a madman and had a couple of collisions along the way, almost hitting a pedestrian or two, until the suspect lost control making a turn on a surface street and crashed head-on into a telephone pole and steel fence.

Suspect in Custody:

Tiene un accidente!

And the second one was over before the helicopter arrived, with the suspect surrendering after running from the San Fernando Valley to Central LA.

Suspect in Custody:

Over before it began….

Two hot pursuits on TV in a hour is a good chase day, and there were also televised pursuits on Monday night and Tuesday night too.

BIG THANKS to the news and the helicopter pilots and reporters!
BIG THANKS to the LAPD for their hard work!

NOTE: The Police have helicopters and radios in addition to guns and a gang of armed uniformed (and undercover) soldiers. Chances are good you will go to jail if you attempt to run from them. However, everyday people still take their chances and for that we thank them for the entertainment.

Memorial Day Weekend 2016

Memorial Day Weekend 2016

US_Flag_Backlit

USA! The United States of America!

Memorial Day: A Day of Remembrance!
Originally it was called Decoration Day. A day when Americans went to cemeteries and placed flags or flowers on the graves of the war dead. It was a day to remember ancestors, family members, and loved ones who made the ultimate sacrifice and died in service for the United States of America. Waterloo, New York, was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, but over two dozen cities and towns claim to be the birthplace of the holiday. Decoration Day was created during the Civil War to honor the dead. It was officially proclaimed on May 5, 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic: “The 30th of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land.”

Traditional observance of Memorial day has diminished over the years and many Americans have forgotten the meaning and traditions of the day. At many cemeteries, the graves of American war dead are increasingly ignored or neglected while backyard barbecues and a three day weekend are now the only celebration of the holiday.

FRIDAY

Our “three day weekend” began on Friday afternoon.

Dinner with a friend at Mucho Mas Mexican Restaurant in North Hollywood. We been here before and you can read about it (See our Previous Blog! Search Box: Mucho Mas^^^^^)

Dinner at Mucho Mas Mexican Restaurant in North Hollywood, California

On The Menu: 2 beef tacos, a cheese enchilada, Mexican rice, refried beans, a green salad with ranch dressing, fresh made tortilla chips & spicy salsa and a Dr Pepper.

DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE!
Memorial Day Weekend in Los Angeles is a “Maximum Enforcement” period by local law enforcement to combat drunk driving. On our way to NoHo we saw LAPD Metro cops on motorcycles already patrolling the San Fernando Valley. Once again we were the designated driver, so we didn’t drink any alcohol before dinner or at the restaurant, so our friend could enjoy his beers and stay safe in North Hollywood.

SATURDAY

Chore Day! Laundry and Spring Cleaning! We spent most of the day trying to clean and get organized. We are on a mission to get rid of the clutter and stuff we don’t need.

We finished and posted a new Blog about the “Slugfest in Hollywood” on Tuesday: the Dixie Hollywood Hotel, Dinner at Susan Finegar’s Mud Hen Tavern and The Cure at the Hollywood Bowl”.

And a pretty boring Saturday night at home…

13332940_1400360313323864_5312851695011305976_n

Dinner: Enchilada Nachos!

Dinner: Enchilada Nachos! Used the leftover Mexican food from last night: cheese enchilada cut up with the rice and beans and then more cheese over tortilla chips with taco bell hot sauce. “Life is short, make it saucy!”

And we watched “The Intern” with Robert Deniro and Anne Hathaway on HBO. A cute film about a 70 year old retired business man (played by Deniro) who interns for a successful online women’s clothing company owned by a young, overworked woman with an adorable young child and a “stay at home” husband (played by Hathaway). The cast is rounded out by a crew of young, nerdy “Tech Bros” and Rene Russo as the company masseuse.

It’s really a romantic comedy without the romance between Deniro and Hathaway, adding Rene Russo as the hot, younger old person and love interest. It was a fun movie with a great cast, but the happy ending was kind of lacking in resolution and could have been much better! Deniro got to chew on the scenery and play a custom tailored part and that’s what he’s great at. Hathaway is a terrific actress, and this role mirrors her part in “The Devil Wears Prada” as a young and successful working woman conquering adversity.

We also did a little Periscope viewing too. We watched The Cure live from Washington and Steven Brody Stevens killing it and rockin’ comedy at the Improv on Melrose.

And then we worked on laying out this Blog until we got tired and fell asleep.

SUNDAY

We slept in and then made breakfast/brunch.

13267916_1400742953285600_1124180386501651728_n

Sunday Breakfast – Bacon and Eggs!

Sunday Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with cheese & hot sauce, bacon, English muffins with peanut butter & raspberry jam, nectarine, orange juice and an iced espresso.

And we were going to do stuff today and then we turned on HBO and saw they were running a marathon of “The Pacific”, the under appreciated follow up to “Band of Brothers” in honor of Memorial Day. It’s a great period piece about World War II and the war against the Japanese. So, we didn’t watch all 10 hours, but we did watch…and worked.

MV5BNDY5NTg3NjQ4NF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwODIwODAyMw@@._V1_SX640_SY720_

Hot Dogs! Sunday afternoon with the dogs in the backyard:

We were invited to go to the movies, but passed because we didn’t want to see the film and we hate going to the theatre on weekends or holidays because there are just too many people, and all it really takes is one person with a cell phone to ruin the experience for me. So, we stayed at the home office and someone brought me dinner!

13327426_1401032309923331_8528309344499929008_n

Sunday “To Go” Dinner delivered: Orange chicken, steamed rice, sautéed vegetables from The Cheesecake Factory and a Dr Pepper. Tasty “comfort” food makes me happy.

Sunday night “must see TV” on HBO: New episodes of “Game of Thrones”, “Silicon Valley” and a previously aired episode of “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”

SPOILER ALERT! 

“Hold the door!” We waited all week for this episode of Game of Thrones. Last week’s episode “The Door” was excellent. And sad. And emotionally involving. And as always, there are so many story lines running that each episode feels incomplete…
And so, with great anticipation we waited and watched this week’s episode.

Do you think Hodor will return as a wight?

NOTE: “Silicon Valley” is “genius” humor.
This week’s episode was pretty great. Oh the Bachmanity!

MONDAY – It’s Memorial Day!

Grapefruit, coffee, leftover cold orange chicken for breakfast and then back to bed…

The annual “Band of Brothers” marathon on HBO was interrupted by a LIVE televised Memorial Day Holiday High Speed Pursuit at noon!

Band_of_Brothers_poster

“Band of Brothers” is a 2001 American war drama based on historian Stephen E. Ambrose’s 1993 non-fiction book. It is based on the true World War Two story of the men of Easy Company from the US Army 101st Airborne division who fought in Europe during the war.

NOTE: We’ve seen “Band of Brothers” in it’s entirety a couple of times. So when a social media alert was broadcast about another LIVE high speed pursuit in Los Angeles, we switched over and began watching the car chase.

Memorial Day Holiday LIVE Televised High Speed Pursuit:

13343133_1401969013162994_5731973692114548702_n

Memorial Day Holiday High Speed Pursuit in Southern California

The French Open was rained out so NBC stayed on the chase that started at about 10:30am… Stolen vehicle: a silver KIA Sorrento SUV with an “impaired” driver on surface streets in East Los Angeles. We picked up the pursuit at noon as the suspect got on the empty freeways and continued driving for almost 3 hours. NBC commentary was complete speculation and stupidity, so we switched over to ABC and then KCAL9 (our local CBS affiliate). Please just the facts, not ignorant newscaster’s uninformed opinions!

Memorial Day Holiday High Speed Pursuit in Southern California

At 1pm, KCAL 9 and FOX both cut off their news coverage and returned to regular programming, so we switched back to ABC and NBC because KTLA 5 News didn’t pick up the chase at all for their one o’clock broadcast. And just after 1pm he ran out of gas on the 405 near the Long Beach Freeway, smoked some more meth in the car and then surrendered without further incident to the California Highway Patrol.

Memorial Day High Speed Pursuit – Suspect in Custody!

Just another holiday Monday in Los Angeles! And with the suspect in custody and the chase over at 1:30pm, it was time for lunch.

Monday Lunchtime!

Monday Lunchtime! A bacon, lettuce and cheese sandwich on challah bread; dill pickle, celery, carrots, blueberries, red grapes and pineapple juice.

Afternoon CHILLIN’ in the backyard and more episodes of “Band of Brothers” while getting some work done in the office was how we spent the rest of the day.

Monday Memorial Day Holiday Chillin’ on the Backyard Patio

We worked, we cleaned, we played with the dogs.

And then we got hungry and went to see what ingredients we had for dinner. We decided to make some pasta and did a little fancy cooking in the kitchen:

Dinner on Monday: Spaghetti with garlic alfredo sauce, grilled chicken, stir-fried broccoli & sautéed onions and a coke.

Where did the three day weekend go? Mostly boring. We hope you had a good one!

REMEMBER THE FALLEN! Some gave all so you could BBQ in peace.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

MLB NL Playoff Game 5: NY METS 3 – LA DODGERS 2

Farmer John hotdogs (Dodger Dogs) are gross. And we’re still boycotting the Los Angeles Dodgers, Time-Warner and any of their sponsors:

Dodgers Stadium in Chavez Ravine, Los Angeles, CA

They suckered you in and took your money. You bought your hat, jersey, bobbleheads and other merch. You don’t get to watch the game on TV (FU TWC), and how much did you spend on tickets, parking and overpriced concessions to see them play at Chavez Ravine? And now when it counts, they fold like a bad poker hand and let you down again.

One minute after my post, “Get ready Dodgers fans, it’s choke time….”
the NY Mets hit a home run and went ahead 3-2 and ultimately won the game.

Here’s the “Live Facebooking” with my friend Keith until the end of the game:

I’ve been a fan since the original Dodgers Pepsi Fan Club in the 70s. I haven’t been able to watch games on TV for TWO YEARS!

dodgerslose2

Sorry Keith. Dodgers lose again.

Better order that LAPD “Tactical Alert” right now…

FIRE MATTINGLY! END THE BLACKOUT! GO CUBS!

Maybe the games will be televised in Los Angeles next season. I saw the massive Police presence at Dodgers Stadium for Game 5 and had to wonder who pays the tab for the Police and other Los Angeles City Services during a baseball game?

UPDATE: October 28, 2015 – The Dodgers and Don Mattingly have gone their separate ways! The Cubs did not win the playoffs and the first game of the World Series went extra innings with the Kansas City Royals defeating the Toronto Blue Jays. The Blackout and BOYCOTT continues! FU TWC! Who will be the next Dodgers General Manager?

I learned from the last presidential election, that sharing politics on the internet is a good way to lose “friends” and “followers” who might not align with the politics that are shared.

However, as I followed the events in Ferguson, Missouri yesterday and into the night, I was left asking WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?

The First Amendment of the Constitution prohibits any law abridging freedom of speech, infringing on freedom of the press, interfering with right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting petitioning for a redress of grievances. (and there’s also something about religion too)

“Article I – Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” (The First Amendment)

After 50 years – Progress? St. Louis County Police in Ferguson, Missouri v. unarmed protesters

I watched racist police in camouflage uniforms and body armor attack unarmed protesters and journalists. They were teargassed, fired at with rubber bullets, attacked with high tech military weapons, intimidated by heavily armed police, assaulted and arrested for recording the strong-arm tactics and activities of law enforcement.

Missouri and St. Louis County, your police stormtrooper tactics are a national disgrace!

From the Washington Post: reporter-wesley-lowery-gives-account-of-his-arrest: “As they took me into custody, the officers slammed me into a soda machine, at one point setting off the Coke dispenser. They put plastic cuffs on me, then they led me out the door.”

The mainstream television news media was absent and the reports from network news was skewed, twisted and voiced without knowledge of the actual facts. Only MSNBC was present on the scene and providing live coverage. While the network morning shows were featuring weather, traffic, diet advice and Anne Hathaway and CNN and FOX were bending the truth, MSNBC was providing a factual accounting of POLICE ABUSE IN AMERICA.

And while journalists were ordered out of the area, attacked, assaulted and arrested, reports and video were coming in real time on Twitter and Livestream showing the truth.

The iPhone is mightier than the corporate news media! Thank you MSNBC and Twitter.
