    • What’s the big deal? Hot sauce goes on greens. I do it all the time. I put it on bacon and french fries too. It’s a staple in my house.

      SHIIIIIIDDDD! I never leave home without my hot sauce or A1 Steak Sause. In fact, me, hubby, and a few friends went to a high end restaurant in Minneapolis.

      I ordered Filet mignon, asked for A1 Steak Sauce. The French chef came to our table and asked who asked for A1. I said, “I did, is there a problem.?” He said “No, go fuck yourself.” I whipped out my A1, and told him “Yes, I will, and it always feels so good.”

      The chef went back into the kitchen, and the waitress brought me my steak. I tasted it, and slid on some A1, That fucking chef’s ego was bruised, because I asked for steak sauce.
      Needless to say, we never went back. Two years later, we saw on the news where the restaurant caught fire, and burned beyond repair.

      Too bad. I’m the customer.

    The White House wants to shut down a special FBI unit that investigates people within the US accused of committing war crimes, human rights violations, & brings to justice those who commit atrocities against Americans overseas.

    Congress must reject this.

      Bit by bit, these work policies try to chip away at our blackness, our self esteem.

      Not going to work MOFOS You’ll never erase our BLACKNESS.

      This is a great story. I didn’t know until just a few years ago that these two didn’t even know each other. Everyone kind of assumed they were a couple who were meeting again after a long separation. But that not being true doesn’t make the photo any less iconic,and the sailor’s story about the nurses might even be better.

  3. Look who came to see me today? Our little sweet Carson.

  4. WELL………….. Cyclist threw an object in the driver’s window. He couldn’t see. That’s what he gets. The cyclist put himself in danger. Don’t throw things into a moving vehicle’s windshield and you’re right in front of the vehicle. If you obstruct the driver’s view, it can get you fk’d up.

    Many experts predicted that the Supreme Court’s 5-to-4 Janus decision would cause public-sector unions to lose 10 percent to 30 percent of their membership and revenues. Instead, unions are undergoing a historic resurgence.

    Matt Murphy (@MattMurph24) Tweeted:
    Dems lost Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania because of voter suppression, not due to any perceived lack of campaigning by HRC. It was also the first Presidential election in 50 years without the full protections of the Voting Rights Act. I’m tired of false narratives.

    The most dangerous threats to democracy in America are the GOP leaders who have empowered Trump. Here’s a great @AJentleson piece on #MitchMcConnell, “the man who surrendered the Senate to the president.”

    So, he is trying to crawl out of his 2016 hole?
    Like we forgot what he did then, and his basic silence the past two years 😠😠

    Uh huh πŸ˜’

    Tony Schwartz (@tonyschwartz) Tweeted:
    Enough w/Republican senators not standing up to Trump because they fear his wrath. 11 don’t face reelection till 2024. 22 don’t till 2022. If they don’t step up when Trump challenges the constitution & the law, it’s isn’t about reelection, it’s that they’re simply craven.
