#6019: THIRD day

I managed, despite getting less than 5 hours' sleep thanks to cat. I lived. I'm home.

I clapped when I saw this on the news. The junior Senator from Minnesota George Soros is going to resign because he got caught being a pervert and a cad.

Democrats needed someone to be the scapegoat, and Franken's career as a Senator was mortally wounded anyway, so they can call for his resignation and then claim to be tough on perverts when the next one crops up. "I just don't think Senator [Democrat]'s misconduct is as bad as former Senator Franken's who--as you know--I called on to resign after his peccadillos became known."

That's what it's about: buying a "get out of jail free" card for the next Democrat pervert cad.

Kevin Spacey grabbed a Norwegian noble's junk. But he's chosen to live his life as a gay man, so we can no longer be critical of him without being homophobes.

Bullshit. Boeing doesn't have a vehicle and it doesn't have a plan and it doesn't have the money to land something on Mars before SpaceX. As the article itself points out, "Boeing also isn't going to land a rocket on Mars without near total funding from NASA, which has already paid more than $10 billion for development of the SLS and has no actual funding to implement a humans-to-Mars exploration plan." SpaceX at least has been aiming at Mars all along.

Somebody tell these assholes that Kwanzaa was invented in 1966. It's approximately as authentically African as Taco Bell is authentically Mexican. It is, in fact, a Marxist holiday.

    Mrs. Fungus and I went to the zoo to look at their Christmas lights. It was quite nice. Hit an IHOP on the way home for a late dinner. In a little…
