Re: “Friday: An open line and closing thoughts

There is a story that just before the Stock Market crash in 1929, Republicans answered Hoover's critics by saying, "Get over it. We won."

As Trump stumbles and staggers, that feeble answer, "We won....get over it", gets more and more pathetic.

Re: “Trump on Puerto Rico: Moron is too kind

I would like to start a movement (and there's a pun in this as you'll soon see) to start calling toilet paper "Trump" paper. And when he makes public appearances, people toss rolls of Trump paper in his direction. Trump confetti, so to speak.
"Trump" paper is the official paper of the movement. It's to wipe up all the messes he makes, all the lies he tells, and the insults he delivers, and all the sh*t that makes him the crappiest man ever to sit in the Oval Office.

Re: “What's wrong with Arkansas: Halloween edition

According to The Candy Store, here is their list of the five WORST Halloween candies. Judge for yourself by your own tummy flipflop and lip snarl reaction:

(Drumroll please.......)

5. Peanut Butter Kisses
These are neither Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, nor Hersheys Kisses. Ive seen them referred to as Mary Janes, which makes enough sense. You know these because they have a plain orange or black wrapper. My advice is to leave them in that wrapper and move onto the next candy.

4. Necco Wafers
Theyre like Smarties, but bigger, not as sweet, and more chalky. So yeah. These took the top spot on one list, and Im surprised they werent on every list. When I started this project, I was sure that theyd be the hands down worst candy.

3. Wax Coke Bottles
The novelty of these is great. The first time you get one. When youre five years old. Then the realization sets in: youre biting through wax to get not even a mouthful of sugar water. By age eight you toss them in the trash without even bothering.

2. Candy Corn
Look, if you dont like candy corn, you can just give it to me. Yes, its just sugar. Isnt that the point? Candy corn is nothing special. There are absolutely better candies out there. But if you cant enjoy stuffing handfuls of candy corn into your pie hole, well, I dont even know what to tell you.

1. Circus Peanuts
Id completely forgotten about these! Or, more accurately, Id blocked them out. There is no way to describe the vileness that is Circus Peanuts. I have to believe that they werent rated as the worst on everyones list because they, too, blocked these inedible monstrosities from their memories.
*****

Here is link to 10-best & 10-worst Halloween candies: https://www.candystore.com/blog/holidays/h…

****
Personally - I detested any kind of hard candy, especially those minty ones that left a burning-like aftertaste.

Re: “Supreme Court asked to block Mississippi gay discrimination law

That dog won't hunt LB. In America, we need to make this type of discrimination illegal and unacceptable. If you don't, then you are saying that it is OK to do so.
And it's not OK to do so.

Re: “Trump can still count on Tom Cotton

Maybe TC should consider the these thoughts regarding #45:
".....as to Ivanka's father, you take the lies out of him, and he'll shrink to the size of your hat; you take the malice out of him, and he'll disappear."

Re: “Open line: Plus death probe in Conway County

Some days, my mind and soul call for a break from the world's troubles. Music is the door through which I most often escape and find a moment's respite. It takes a very special piece of music to shake the grip those terrible things have on your feelings. Something which expresses the sadness you feel yet gives you hope.

Something by Bach.

So, here are two of Bach's best known piano pieces. You can see the music as the pianist sees it; you can follow the rapid finger movements as the pianist transforms those little black notes into melody and song; and you can hear and feel Bach's musical universe for a few brief but wonderfully timeless moments.

Re: “More details emerge on Republican vote suppression

What is wrong with proving that you need a law like this, with proving that there is really voter fraud, and with proving that you want people to vote?
Do you actually believe that citizens should be denied the most basic right this country affords to its citizens? Do you actually think????
My parents, grandparents, most of my friends, and all of our forebears did not need this BS you rant for Razor. The ones who seemed to be asked for such the most often were those whites didn't want voting. Am so tired of your racist BS, RB. It sucks, you suck, and the reason outer space is a vacuum is because this entire phony issue and its supporters suck. You may want to live in a vacuum but I prefer living with breathable and honest air.
