Animal’s Hump Day News

Happy Hump Day!

Ten days and counting, before we can leave New Jersey in the rear-view mirror.  It can’t happen too soon for us!  This whole year and nine months has been odd; while there are things I like about the area, not least of which are the great diners and Italian restaurants, it’s baffling to me how anyone would want to live here.  At least Raritan isn’t a congested area.  On the contrary, it was a distinct small-town feel.  But the state government?  Holy crap.  What a shitshow.

So, with that said…

On To the Links!

Notorious right-winger Alan Dershowitz on the General Flynn issue:  Let us hear now from the former civil libertarians for whom any violation of law is permissible, as long as it is directed at a Trump associate.  Don’t hold your breath.

Neandertals were choosy about their bone tools.  Neat stuff.

Oh hey – President Obama pardoned a general for lying to the FBI.  What about that?

Also, the Flynn debacle appears to have gone right to the top.

Here’s an interesting back-and-forth on the Kung Flu lock-downs.

And from the same source, a possible solution to the meat shortages.

Late-night television has gone strangely quiet on Tara Reade.

Top. Men.

Cuomo:  “We fucked up.”

Venezuela has a navy?  Who knew?

This was the right thing to do.

Sorry, Mr. Musk, Directive 10-289 is in effect.

The Supreme Court has handed immigration hawks a win.  And – this is important – not along ideological lines.  The Ninth Circuit got spanked – again.

When your opponent is making a mistake – let him.

What the hell do you expect in Massachusetts?

Poor old Groper Joe; when you’ve lost MSNBC…

This Week’s Idiots:

Paul Krugman is a partisan hack, and an idiot.

This woman is an idiot.

The Iranian “Navy” is apparently populated with idiots.

And So…

I’m actually kind of looking forward to our upcoming road trip.

It’s always fun to see the countryside.  And even when confined to this little apartment in NJ during the Moo Goo Gai Panic, most days Mrs. Animal and I are generally involved in our own work during the day and don’t often just sit and talk.  But on road trips, while on the road we do nothing else but talk, and I enjoy that a lot.

So, on the road again!

Hitting the road.

And with that, we return you to your Wednesday, already in progress.
