Mini-Snippets of Snark

I sometimes have a short attention span and today I have only a few mini-snippets of snark for you …

The Republicans have solutions for mass shootings.  Last week it was arming the teachers. This week it’s arm the doctors, arm the undertakers. But when that white supremacist shot up the Black grocery store in Buffalo, guess what they did not say:  Arm the black people.  Anybody wonder why?

Nobody who still believes that the 2020 election results were not fair, that the former guy actually won, has any right whatsoever to be placed in a position of trust either monitoring or otherwise affecting election results in 2022 or 2024 … or ever.  The Republicans talk the talk about election integrity, but they damn sure don’t walk the walk, for they already have plans in the works to put partisan hacks in charge of elections starting this November.

Rumour has it that the former guy is planning, along with his minions in Congress, to offer a ‘counter-program’ to the January 6th House investigative committee televised hearings this month.  Send in the clowns! 🤡 I may have more on this later, but for right now I see it as irrelevant just as I see the former guy.  The media needs to wake up and stop giving airtime to this circus.  Pbtht.

James Madison Preparatory High School in Madison, Florida, raffled off fishing and hunting gear and firearms, including handguns and semi-automatic rifles, in a $100-per-ticket raffle that started May 2nd.  Am I the only one whose jaw dropped over this?  A school.  In Florida.  Selling guns.  Does anybody see this as sane?

Stewart Parks, running for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, has this to say:

“If you elect me, this month will be the last National Gay Pride month ever celebrated. We need to elect people into US congress that will stand up and say Homosexuality and Transgenderism are evil.  Sexual Liberation is NOT western values. LGBQT+ movement is communist as they seek to destabilize our country with their divisive rhetoric and destroy families. Transgenderism and Pedophilia are now rampant in our society.”

I can only shake my head, growl, and hope to Hell that Tennesseans have enough sense to Never elect this bigot to ANY office.

I found humour here.  A couple in India is threatening to sue their grown son for $650,000.  Why?  Because he’s been married for six years yet has failed to present them with a grandchild.  Yep, you read it right … because he and his spouse haven’t yet had children, his parents want back all the money they invested in him through the years.  They are demanding that their son and daughter-in-law produce a grandchild within a year or pay $650,000 in ‘damages’.

And last, but not least, late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel isn’t laughing in this one from a week ago … but he is spot on and smarter than most of the people he talks about here.

  1. There was a time, when reading that item about parents suing their son, I would have laughed slightly, shook my head and said sort of fondly ‘Only in America’.
    Not anymore, with the slew of toxicity coming from sections of The Right, it’s just another symptom of the sickness.
    Take care folks.

  3. Totally and completely incomprehensible-all of it. If this happened in their local market or their neighborhood school or, pray it never happens, to someone close to them … they’d be screaming for gun law reform within minutes! Ridiculous and so cruel of the people who can make change but refuse to do so! 😡

    • You’ve hit the nail on the head, my friend. IF it happened to their spouse or children, their world would be turned upside down and their views would have to change. Then again, remember when Representative Steve Scalise was shot a few years back … and he’s still anti-gun legislation. So, perhaps some of them don’t even have hearts or consciences. I just don’t know anymore.
