Did I say Jurassic? I think I meant to say geriatric. Democratic Congresswoman, Rosa DeLauro, could take Ron Wood’s place center stage with Mick and not be out of place.
As CBS News reports, “Bernie and Jane Sanders, under FBI investigation for bank fraud, hire lawyers“. We may now have an idea what Bernie and Jane did with all that cash.
Politico Magazine first reported the Sanders had hired lawyers to defend them in the probe. Sanders’ top adviser Jeff Weaver told CBS News the couple has sought legal protection over federal agents’ allegations from a January 2016 complaint accusing then-President of Burlington College, Ms. Sanders, of distorting donor levels in a 2010 loan application for $10 million from People’s United Bank to purchase 33 acres of land for the institution.
According to Politico, prosecutors might also be looking into allegations that Sen. Sanders’ office inappropriately urged the bank to approve the loan.
I can see it now. Bernie and Jane on the run in their new ride. The Chambers Brothers playing at full volume and Bernie shouting,”Give it some more cowbell, Janie”.
Now the time has come
Nowhere (place) to run
Might get burned up by the sun
But I’ll have my fun
I’ve been loved, pushed (put) aside
I’ve been crushed by tumbling tide
And my soul has been psychedelicized
The Chambers Brothers – “Time Has Come Today”
From The Guardian, “I think leftism is a disorder’: is this artist the rightwing Banksy?”
In the Trump era, the right, however, has its own guerrilla artist: Sabo, a former US marine who works from an apartment-cum-studio in Los Angeles beneath a sign that says “Fuck Tibet”. Another says “Fuck peace”.
Under cover of darkness, he peppers public spaces in LA with images and slogans targeting liberals, whom he associates with “pot-smoking lazy bums” hostile to western values. He puts the same images and slogans on posters, T-shirts and pins which he sells from his website and at Republican party gatherings across the US.
“I think leftism is a mental disorder,” Sabo, 49, said in an interview at his home. “I truly believe I’m fighting the good fight.”
Gag on this morsel from Channel NewsAsia, “China’s dog meat festival opens despite ban rumours“.
A notorious Chinese dog meat festival opened on Wednesday (Jun 21) with sellers torching the hair off carcasses, butchers chopping slabs of canines and cooks frying up dishes, dispelling rumours that authorities would ban sales this year.
After earlier reports of a sales ban at the summer solstice event in the southern city of Yulin, animal rights groups said vendors and officials reached a compromise and set a limit of two dogs on display per stall.
But multiple carcasses rested on several stalls at two markets, with stiff pointy tails, leathery yellow skin, eyes shut and bared teeth as if in a final growl.
Here’s the real deal puppy chow, not that gross and disgusting chow made from, well, chow chows.
