"Better Call Saul" Bench and Pillars of the Community


Since Donnakay Ohmburger won a "Better Call Saul" bench last year in a Tractor Brewing Company raffle, she deploys it at charity fundraising events and fan meetups. She placed it back at its iconic location, on August 31, 2016, in Albuquerque's Washington Park, for the "Better Call Saul Bash".

Hillary's Masterful Campaign, So Far

Taking names and kicking ass.

The Moron’s Case For Hillary Clinton.

We are SO badly served by our media! Here's an excellent article on how AP makes a normal contact with Hillary into a "scandal". People have forgotten what a scandal is. Trump being Vladimir Putin's bitch: now that's a scandal!

The Reason For The Fiction Disclaimer In Movies

Just weird:
For that bit of boilerplate, we can indirectly thank none other than Grigori Rasputin, the famously hard-to-assassinate Russian mystic and intimate of the last, doomed Romanovs. It all started when an exiled Russian prince sued MGM in 1933 over the studio’s Rasputin biopic, claiming that the American production did not accurately depict Rasputin’s murder. And the prince ought to have known, having murdered him.

In Trump We Trust

For those with the fortitude to persevere, this Presidential campaign is so remarkable! I just love how Trump shanked Ann Coulter on the day she released her paean to Trump's trustworthiness. In order to appear less scary to suburban women, Trump is executing the most awkward general-election pivot ever attempted, by adopting the immigration stance of Low-Energy Jeb! Olympic-level chutzpah. I give it a 2.0:
Liberals may die tonight because there are limited supplies of those injections they give you for acute schadenfreude toxicity. Ann Coulter has been Donald Trump's biggest New York City white nationalist supporter. She's transformed toadying into a militant act. Just today her new book In Trump We Trust was released, a genuflecting, tour de force of leader principle obsequiousness. As many have noted, in the book itself she writes that Trump can do anything, change his position on anything - none of it matters. She and they are that devoted. Everything except shift on immigration.

So today, the very day her book comes out he shambles his way to embracing the Rubio/Bush 'Amnesty' agenda he spent the last year railing against and using as a cudgel to destroy the Republican establishment's favored ones.

Transgender Ken Doll Cake Sparks Outrage

Hey, that place is just down the street! I've bought goodies there, and Bella and I have walked by at night. As Eleanor mentions, it looks like Justin Bieber:



A popular bakery in Northern California is caught at the center of a heated debate on social media over a transgender “Ken doll cake” that it said it made for a customer.

Freeport Bakery, a well-known business in Sacramento, posted a picture online nearly two weeks ago showing a special-ordered cake that depicted Ken wearing a puffy pink dress, flowery sash and a tiara.
