Tuesday's Ride - Classic Cars in Cuba


People Are Making Tiny Trump Photos To Annoy The President


From News and Guts

One of our very clever readers sent us this post that has been circulating across Facebook and we just had to share it!
From Susan Keller:
Is there a silver lining? I can't believe I'm saying this, but it looks like America is getting great again. Just look at the progress made since the election:
1. Unprecedented levels of ongoing civic engagement.
2. Millions of Americans now know who their state and federal representatives are without having to google.
3. Millions of Americans are exercising more. They're holding signs and marching every week.
4. Alec Baldwin is great again. Everyone's forgotten he's kind of a jerk.
5. The Postal Service is enjoying the influx cash due to stamps purchased by millions of people for letter and postcard campaigns.
6. Likewise, the pharmaceutical industry is enjoying record growth in sales of anti-depressants.
7. Millions of Americans now know how to call their elected officials and know exactly what to say to be effective.
8. Footage of town hall meetings is now entertaining.
9. Tens of millions of people are now correctly spelling words like narcissist, fascist, misogynist, holocaust and cognitive dissonance.
10. Everyone knows more about the rise of Hitler than they did last year.
11. Everyone knows more about legislation, branches of power and how checks and balances work.
12. Marginalized groups are experiencing a surge in white allies.
13. White people in record numbers have just learned that racism is not dead. (See #6)
14. White people in record numbers also finally understand that Obamacare IS the Affordable Care Act.
15. Stephen Colbert's "Late Night" finally gained the elusive #1 spot in late night talk shows, and Seth Meyers is finding his footing as today's Jon Stewart.
16. "Mike Pence" has donated millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood since Nov. 9th.
17. Melissa FREAKING McCarthy.
18. Travel ban protesters put $24 million into ACLU coffers in just 48 hours, enabling them to hire 200 more attorneys. Lawyers are now heroes.
19. As people seek veracity in their news sources, respected news outlets are happily reporting a substantial increase in subscriptions, a boon to a struggling industry vital to our democracy.
20. Live streaming court cases and congressional sessions are now as popular as the Kardashians.
21. Massive cleanup of facebook friend lists.
22. People are reading classic literature again. Sales of George Orwell's "1984" increased by 10,000% after the inauguration. (Yes, that is true. 10,000%. 9th grade Lit teachers all over the country are now rock stars.)
23. More than ever before, Americans are aware that education is important. Like, super important.
24. Now, more than anytime in history, everyone believes that anyone can be President. Seriously, anyone.

The waltz of spin team

"El Baile" (An Afro Cuban, Soulful House Mix) by DJ Spivey

A perfect example of racism!

Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream 'racism' these days. Here is a perfect example.
A man asked, "In what aisle would I find the Newfy sausage?" 
The shop assistant asks, "Are you from Newfoundland?" 
The guy, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am. But let me ask you something, “If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian? 
Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German? 
Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish? 
Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican? 
Or if I asked for Polish sausage, would you ask if I was Polish?" 
The shop assistant says, "No, I probably wouldn't." 
The guy says, "Well then, because I asked for Newfy sausage, why did you ask me if I'm from Newfoundland?" 
The clerk replied, "Because you're in Home Hardware."
The First Law of Probability -  The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.

Monday's Ride - 1935 REO Pickup for Sale: One and Only REO Speedwagon 6AP

Seduced; a polite way of saying you have been F'cked

Seduced and Betrayed by Donald Trump

Donald Trump won the Electoral College (though not the popular vote) on the strength of overwhelming support from working-class whites, who feel left behind by a changing economy and society. And they’re about to get their reward — the same reward that, throughout Mr. Trump’s career, has come to everyone who trusted his good intentions. Think Trump University.
Yes, the white working class is about to be betrayed.
The evidence of that coming betrayal is obvious in the choice of an array of pro-corporate, anti-labor figures for key positions. In particular, the most important story of the week — seriously, people, stop focusing on Trump Twitter — was the selection of Tom Price, an ardent opponent of Obamacare and advocate of Medicare privatization, as secretary of health and human services. This choice probably means that the Affordable Care Act is doomed — and Mr. Trump’s most enthusiastic supporters will be among the biggest losers.
The first thing you need to understand here is that Republican talk of “repeal and replace” has always been a fraud. The G.O.P. has spent six years claiming that it will come up with a replacement for Obamacare any day now; the reason it hasn’t delivered is that it can’t.
Obamacare looks the way it does because it has to: You can’t cover Americans with pre-existing conditions without requiring healthy people to sign up, and you can’t do that without subsidies to make insurance affordable.

Can you say impeachment?

Roger Stone, about to go down for conspiring with Russia, throws Donald Trump under the bus

Yesterday, four of Donald Trump’s top campaign advisors were publicly exposed as having been caught colluding with Russian intelligence officers during the campaign: Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Carter Page, and Roger Stone. We then predicted last night that it would be a race to see which of the four would be the first to flip on Trump to save themselves. Our bet would have been on Manafort or Flynn, but instead it turns out Roger Stone has now publicly turned against Trump on Russia today.
This comes as somewhat of a surprise, because while Flynn and Manafort were hired guns who had no personal allegiance to Donald Trump and have both since been fired by him as scapegoats, Roger Stone is a decades-long personal friend of Trump. And yet it’s Stone who is now publicly calling for the Department of Justice to immediately investigate the matter. In so doing, Stone is essentially calling for the DOJ to investigate himself as well as Trump. The only logical reason for Stone to do this is if he’s planning to flip on Trump and cooperate with the investigation, in order to shield himself from any prosecution. And Stone appears to know all of Trump’s secrets.

Here lie the victims of Trump lies

Heteronyms -- Enjoy!

Homographs are words of like spelling but with more than one meaning. A homograph that is also pronounced differently is a heteronym. 

You think English is easy??

I think a retired English teacher was bored...THIS IS GREAT!

3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.
4) We must polish the Polish furniture..
5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.
6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert..
7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present thepresent.
8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.
9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.
10) I did not object to the object.
11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.
12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.

20) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?

Let's face it - English is a crazy language. 
There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France . Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? 
If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices? Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?
If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell?

How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which, an alarm goes off by going on.
English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all. That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.
PS. - Why doesn't 'Buick' rhyme with 'quick' ?

You lovers of the English language might enjoy this .

There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is 'UP.' 
It's easy to understand 
UP , meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP 
At a meeting, why does a topic come UP ?
Why do we speak UP and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report?
We call UP our friends.
And we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver; we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. 
We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car.
At other times the little word has real special meaning.
People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.
To be dressed is one thing, but to be dressed UP is special .
A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP. 
We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night.
We seem to be pretty mixed 
UP about UP !
To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP , look the word UP in the dictionary.
In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions.
If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used.
It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP , you may wind UP with a hundred or more. 
When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP .
When the sun comes out we say it is clearing Up .
When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things 
UP .
When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry 
UP . 

One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it 
UP ,
for now my time is UP , is time to shush UP !

Sunday's Ride - Havana, Cuba old cars/ Cruising in a 57 Buick Convertible Havana

Education counts

Bwahaha serves her right

Ivanka Trump Tweeted About Religious Tolerance. It Didn’t Go Down Well.

Most people asked if she’d pass the message on to her father, President Donald Trump.

Ivanka Trump’s attempt at using Twitter to promote religious tolerance backfired Monday night.
President Donald Trump’s daughter tweeted that “America is a nation built on the principle of religious tolerance” and urged people to “protect our houses of worship and religious centers.”
Her well-intentioned post came following a wave of bomb hoaxes against Jewish Community Centers across the country. Trump herself converted to Judaism before marrying Jared Kushner.
But the tweet, which she ended with the hashtag #JCC, wasn’t well received.

It is exactly what we were warned about

“I am enough of a sentimentalist that when I found out THEEEE President was coming to town, I got online quickly and reserved two tickets,” he wrote on Facebook.
But the rally last weekend was not what the pastor had in mind.
“As people were coming in, there was a lot of excitement and a strong sense of patriotism,” Tooley wrote.
However, during a rendition of “God Bless the USA,” some attendees began to sing along and raise their hands in an almost religious way.
“People were being ushered into a deeply religious experience,” Tooley wrote, “and it made me completely uncomfortable.

Brian Mulroney, Trumps lap dog sings when Irish Eyes are Smiling.

It still galls that the man, because he was a former PM, was allowed to carry on his life after deceiving the Canadian people, accepting a brown envelope and then discounting the contents in order to pay less taxes on his ill begotten kickback which was a further insult to honest taxpayers.

Saturday's Ride - Classic American Cars of Cuba: Yank Tanks

Trudeau leaving the White House

Who ever thought we would see people fleeing from a fascist American government?


ON TUESDAY, THE Department of Homeland Security released a pair of memos laying out how the agency intends to implement President Donald Trump’s executive orders on domestic immigration enforcement. In addition to calling for a massive increase in the number of immigration agents and the deputizing of local and state law enforcement across the country — described in the documents as a “force multiplier”— the memos dramatically expand the range of people who can be deported without seeing a judge.
“I see now what the plan is,” Greg Siskind, a Tennessee-based immigration attorney and member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association board of governors, told The Intercept. “Their plan is basically to have everybody thrown out of the country without ever going to court.” Additional immigration attorneys and legal experts who spoke to The Intercept shared Siskind’s concerns, describing various elements of the DHS directives and the executive orders they reflect as “horrifying,” “stunning,” and “inhumane.”

Friday's Ride - 1937 Bugatti Atlantic Replica - $275,000 Long Valley, NJ

A blatant tactic to discredit

'Enemies of the people': Trump remark echoes history's worst tyrants

At a different time, in another country, it was effectively a death sentence.
Being branded an "enemy of the people" by the likes of Stalin or Mao brought at best suspicion and stigma, at worst hard labour or death.
Now the chilling phrase - which is at least as old as Emperor Nero, who was called "hostis publicus", enemy of the public, by the Senate in AD 68 - is making something of a comeback.
In November, the UK Daily Mail used its entire front page to brand three judges "enemies of the people" following a legal ruling on the Brexit process.
Then on Friday, President Donald Trump deployed the epithet against mainstream US media outlets that he sees as hostile.
"The FAKE NEWS media (failing New York Times, NBC News, ABC, CBS, CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!" he wrote on Twitter.
