Postal clerks report that young people don’t know where a stamp goes on an envelope or how to address an envelope. They might ask, “What’s an envelope?”

Bitcoin is reported to be a convenience for ultra right-wing extremists. Today, perhaps Judas would betray Jesus for 30 pieces of Bitcoin.

The Trump Administration is rolling back the Obama-era rule against killing migratory birds. Make the bald eagle dead again.

Now, a corporation can use its tax cut to put up more power lines with a warning to the birds: If you can read this, you're too close.
In the words of one of Roy Moore's lawyers: "Oy Vey!"

There was Moore in defeat quoting the Bible. I thought he would have a meltdown like Frederick March in "Inherit the Wind".

Speaking of the Bible, if there is a recount guess who will be praying that Roy loses -- the Republicans.

Let's mix a batch of metaphors: Mr. Jones goes to Washington disguised as Little Red Riding Hood, walking through the swamp only to be accosted by the Big Bad Schumer.
Here is how the looming tax bill will benefit all you lucky ones in the middle class; eliminating the estate tax -- a big break for middle class folks who live in estates.

Cutting taxes of the one percent. Again, the middle class benefits if your rich uncle takes you to lunch. See if the cooked books are on the menu.

Eliminating the medical deduction would give the middle class the satisfaction that they got sick and died for their country.

Love that Republican trickle-down theory as the middle class gets trickled on.
Franken resigns. Sad. Trump remains. Sick.

We should applaud the banning of Russia from the Winter Olympics. Doping Donald Trump during the 2016 race was a crime.

If our president attends the Games in South Korea, he should be required to pee in a bottle.

Moving the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem -- what's that all about? It's about being close to the future Trump Dome of the Rock Hotel.
Why is the Al Franken situation different? Because I say it is.

Speaking of which -- since Clarence Thomas never speaks why doesn't he write an apology to Anita Hill?

What the tax bill's old trickle-down theory means to me: I will still have to get up in the middle of the night.

Old Zimbabwe joke: "If Mugabe was elephant, his head make nice trophy."
My circuits are overloaded.  let's see, Louis CK should pull out of the Senate race in Alabama, right?

And what about Roy Moore and Kevin Spacey? Which one beat up Rand Paul?

And who is the alleged rapist: Spacey or China? Oh, that's right -- China is no longer a rapist.

But what about Chinese President Xi and the 14-year-old girl? (Xi is pronounced "Z" as in zipper.)

The good news: Harvey Weinstein was fired by Fox News. Besides, that's so last week.
What is the Greek word for collusion? "Papadopoulos".

George Papadopoulos, former Trump guy, is charged with lying about meeting Putin's "cousin" who said she had "dirt" on Hillary. The top secret code name for the source of the dirt is "Fox".

Also indicted is Paul "Double Smirnoff" Manafort. When Paul was born the doctor said, "this baby looks guilty".

Lawyers are getting $1000 an hour for advising their clients to tell the biggest lie in Washington: "I welcome the opportunity to confront these charges."

Meanwhile, President Trump leaves Friday for a 12-day trip across Asia in search of Hillary-dirt in the Himalayas.  
Today is Honor The Veterans With Bone Spurs Day --- in recognition of the men and women who went to Vietnam instead of taking what is known today as the Trump Deferment!

Trump's doctor facilitated his deferment from military service due to bone spurs (BS).

John McCain recently made fun of the president's BS deferment. Bone spurs can be painful and we await the tweet describing pain to Senator McCain.

Trump knew what he wasn't signing up for. Sad.
Due to various Trump-provoked threats from North Korea, Iran and others, I am restoring my old fallout shelter from the 60s.

The canned goods are still there but they didn't have expiration dates back then. Nor did the country.

Does the Campbell Soup company make Cream of Armageddon?

The threat of World War III is real according to Senator Bob Corker. I may call my survival room a Corker Shelter. Trump Cave? Kim Coop?

I don't want to be an alarmist, but before we make America great again -- duck and cover!
Opening in Washington, DC! The Museum of the Bible, immaculately conceived by its creator, the arts and craft folks at Hobby Lobby.

I understand that Hobby Lobby's Ark of the Covenant is made of balsa wood and is impressive. As is the easy-to-assemble fireproof Burning Bush.

In this state-of-the-ark (sorry) museum there is a sign saying, "no animals were mistreated by Noah."

In the revised, updated text, Jesus feeds 5000 people with one fish fillet sandwich.

Let me say that when I read the Bible, I don't take Hobby Lobby literally.

Washington is getting cluttered with museums. The oldest is the US Congress, a wax museum which features a life-like Mitch McConnell.
