Remember that old joke about the guys in prison who called out numbers instead of telling the same joke for the hundredth time? Well, this is the next best thing: one fun quote to sum up stories that will make you laugh and make you think.
“If you’re going to rant, at least try to make it funny.”
“As I waited to check out at Costco a few weeks ago, I was struck by the absurdity of my desire to make sharp investments for the upcoming year while seeing first hand my uncanny ability to pick the worst line. …
Here is his exact quote.
“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election.” — William Barr
Here is the lede from AP:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General William Barr said Tuesday the Justice Department has not uncovered evidence of widespread voter fraud that would change the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
Here is the lede from CNN:
(CNN)The Justice Department hasn’t found evidence to support allegations of widespread fraud that could have changed the result of last month’s presidential election, Attorney General William Barr said in an interview with the Associated Press published Tuesday. …
In part one, we looked at how the NBA came back from the shutdown and changed in many profound ways. In part two, let’s look back at how the bubble affected the playoffs and what it may tell us about the upcoming season.
One of the most interesting developments in the bubble was how the level of play improved, especially for role players.
Players were not burdened by travel and social distractions in each new town, while they got to see the same basket and background environment in every game.
Teams shot better in the bubble and there were wild scoring games. …
Due to the pandemic, LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the Lakers did not get a parade, so they released a new track to their album, “L.A. Our Way.”
(Sung to the tune We Are the Champions)
Fans paid their dues
For such a long time
Suffered such nonsense
Disrespected by K’whi
And bad mistakes
Ballz made a few
Shoving his billboards right into our face
We just had to come through
(And we need to laugh on and on, and on, and on)
We‘re bubble champions, Lakers fans
Not like the Clippers, also-rans
We‘re bubble champions
We‘re bubble champions
Tweet all the haters
’Cause we’re bubble champions
No, dear reader, I have started to watch Fox News to report their alternative reality and protect you from direct exposure to the brain-rotting qualities of their broadcasts.
This week, we saw the beginning of the end of the disease that has plagued our beautiful land.
Not the pandemic, silly, the toxic sewage poisoning the Oval Office:
When the Supreme Court ordered the state of Florida to stop counting their ballots, awarding the election to George W. Bush, attorney Vincent Bugliosi wrote:
“…the institution Americans trust the most to protect its freedoms and principles committed one of the biggest and most serious crimes this nation has ever seen–pure and simple, the theft of the presidency…
“No technical true crime was committed here by the five conservative Justices only because no Congress ever dreamed of enacting a statute making it a crime to steal a presidential election…
“That an election for an American President can be stolen by the highest court in the land under the deliberate pretext of an inapplicable constitutional provision has got to be one of the most frightening and dangerous events ever to have occurred in this country.” …
I started writing on this platform in the Social Media Time Unit of Our Lord and Corporate Overseer 696 B.M. (before money).
As I rise on this glorious social media time unit of 1138 A.P.P. (after Partner Program), I wanted to send out a message of hope when it comes to growing a massive and loyal group of followers.
You probably know that writers with a huge number of followers have a much higher chance of making a lot of money on their stories.
As the rules of the game continue to change, just know this: if you thought Medium was fucking with you before, you ain’t see nothing yet. …
At first, you scream in pain as the lies come in contact with your ears. But then they interview an “expert” who asks questions that seem reasonable on the surface, and you wonder if you should at least listen to what they’re saying.
In five minutes, I could see how Fox News can turn people into brain-dead pod people.
Here’s the clip from the movie.
According to Khan, “You see, their young enter through the ears and wrap themselves around the cerebral cortex… This has the effect of rendering the victim extremely susceptible to suggestion.”
“Later, as they grow,” Khan continued, “follows madness … and death.” …
Here’s a summary of the moves so far by tiers.
These top contenders for next season are handicapped with cap space problems and glaring weaknesses that other teams may not want to solve. When we compare them to Lakers, Bucks and Heat, their inability to improve will probably push them further down the mountain.
Year after year, the media trumpets the genius of Danny Ainge. While he fleeced the Nets and 76ers in trades and got tons of assets, he has consistently failed to do anything with them.
To be fair, the Celtics found two stars in Jayson Tatum and Jalen Brown, but they did not find a franchise-altering MVP level player at the level of Giannis or Luka. They are also not quite at the level of the guys who continue to block their path to the Finals. …
If you don’t know who I’m talking about, Vince Lombardi was regarded as the greatest coach in NFL history and famous for his quote, “winners never quit and quitters never win.”
The problem was he was so driven as a coach, he neglected his body and looked like sdk when he died at age 57.
What people don’t remember about Lombardi is what makes him the greatest: his was one of the leaders in the NFL against discrimination. …
