Letterman on Trump

Letterman on Trump

Q&A: FRANKEN, LETTERMAN TAKE ON CLIMATE CHANGE

Letterman: Here’s what I keep saying: We know there’s something wrong, but what I’m tired of is people, daily, nightly, on all the cable news shows telling us there’s something wrong. I just think we ought to direct our resources and our energies to doing something about it. And other people have made this point: If the guy was running Dairy Queen, he’d be gone. This guy couldn’t work at The Gap. So why do we have to be victimized by his fecklessness, his ignorance?

But it’s just the behavior is insulting to Americans, whether you voted for him or not - and I feel bad for people who did vote for him because he promised them things that they really needed and one wonders if he’s really going to come through. I know there’s trouble in this country and we need a guy who can fix that trouble. I wish it was Trump, but it’s not, so let’s just stop whining about what a goon he is and figure out a way to take him aside and put him in a home.

My two cents…

He’ll come through very little for those who voted for him.

Businessmen can be ruthlessly self-seeking and they’re rarely out for the little guy. So I guess if that’s what it takes to get to the top, then whatever fine but I don’t see him changing all that much since he took office. Feels like he’s out for the corporations and not the best interests of the common man, the environment, or the country’s reputation.

Also, I know many people who’re out there doing something. Attending rallies, organizing them, protesting — all that kinda thing.

Me? I would but I’ve a misplaced tendon from the Great Football War and feel content to simply aid in the resistance by providing commentary from my phone.

commentary is crucial.

The great insult [and of course nobody that I need to say this to is reading this but I’ve a got job to worry about so I rant to those who already know] is that he thought that being rich qualified him for the job. INCREDIBLY INSULTING. No amount of exposing his stupidity, lies and ignorance are ever going to be enough. I’m still struck by the first few days after the election and again after the inauguration. One picture paints a thousand words and the man obviously did not expect to win and HAD NO PLAN. He didn’t have a cabinet already picked out and ready to hit the ground running. Even after November until he took office, he didn’t have the spots filled. Don’t get me wrong, the lists delineating the lies are important and maybe the best way to deal with this little sociopath, but a little commentary is necessary too and it could rhyme.

At best, he’s using Reagan’s and Bush’s leftovers. Trickle Down?! AreYouFuckingKiddingME? It didn’t work. Ever. At all. Ask people from 52501 when the economy took a permanent turn downward. The only people who were fans of the Reagan years were the people who were already rich. I have no doubt that some of those guys were OK to golf with their domestic policies resembled Vlad the Impaler. And their foreign policy started WWIII.

To quote Root Boy Slim and the Sex Change Band:

I was sitting in my living room
watching my TV
When I finally realized
It was WWIII!

Letterman is actually approaching it from a very civilized and professional viewpoint. Let’s get him in a home. Not talking about putting him in jail or a guillotine. Just a home for befuddled seniors who’ve lost their way. They’ll take good care of him.

Unfortunately, I’m being completely serious.
They take good care of my mom at Good Samaritan.

I think cucumber should have two of the letter U — just like vacuum. Imagine the glory of cuucumber.

It would be more than triumphant.

Biggest iceberg yet breaks from Antartica

Biggest iceberg yet breaks from Antartica

Larsen C calves trillion ton iceberg

A one trillion tonne iceberg – one of the biggest ever recorded - has calved away from the Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica. The calving occurred sometime between Monday 10th July and Wednesday 12th July 2017, when a 5,800 square km section of Larsen C finally broke away. The iceberg, which is likely to be named A68, weighs more than a trillion tonnes. Its volume is twice that of Lake Erie, one of the Great Lakes.

In other words an iceberg bigger than Delaware just broke away from Antartica and is now freely roaming the ocean.

I’ve lit my life on fire

tcr! · Jul 12, 2017 at 7:28 am

Lit on fire

If you haven’t heard this story, you’re in luck.

The first week or so I was sober I was sitting in a meeting and said, “I’ve lit my life on fire.”

When I was drinking I wasn’t capable of caring because I was drunk and numb to my life burning. But being freshly sober I was like, “Oh my fucking god. My life is on fire.” I was freaking out, anxious all the time, having panic attacks… And I really, really didn’t want my life to burn down.

As I was talking during that meeting, I was looking around the room and most people were nodding because they, too, had set their lives on fire at one time or another. Knowing that others could relate to what I’d done and how I was feeling gave me some hope. It made me feel accepted, that I was in the right place. My whole life I’d waited to belong somewhere and now I finally had. On more than a superficial level.

And that was all of Step Two’s “power greater than me” that I needed. My head was too full of tops spinning to think on grandiose spiritual terms. The meetings and what I found there were good enough.

All I really knew was that when I wasn’t at a meeting I felt batshit crazy and when I sat down at one, I had a little sense that everything was somehow going to be okay. If only for the moment. Maybe. I wasn’t gushing at the seams with positivity but at least I was around people who understood what I was going through.

So then I was talking with my sponsor and I asked when I was going to be restored to sanity and he said “when you work the rest of the steps.”

I think about the beginning of How It Works often, especially the line where it says the steps are the suggested program of recovery.

Just not drinking isn’t enough. Just going to meetings isn’t enough. I won’t feel sane because I’ll keep being me.

  • Until I gave up in Step Three because I accepted my way didn’t work, I was gonna keep feeling insane.
  • Until I took and shared my inventory, shared that ugly, nasty shit, I was gonna keep feeling insane.
  • Until I was beaten by my shortcomings (just like I was beaten by alcohol) and asked God for help, I was gonna keep feeling insane.
  • Until I made my amends, paid restitution for the damage I caused, I was gonna keep feeling insane.

After the Ninth Step the Big Book says, “We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness… We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace.”

And ya know what? When I was well into my amends I started to feel more than somewhat sane. My sanity had been mostly been restored. Without me even knowing it.

And today my life isn’t on fire. I don’t feel batshit crazy anymore. Mostly… 😉

I had no idea you were suffering like this. I know you had to do this yourself but I wish I could have helped!

It wasn’t that bad. A mere flesh wound.

I’m sorry but I just can’t get behind people who are sulking and pouting that their lives are so horrible while floating around in their swimming pools. In Southern California no less. On a weekday. In the middle of the afternoon.
