A person bunkerooed at Family Dollar

I despise Family Dollar with a passion, but Family Dullard stores are everywhere, and I was forced to shop there earlier because I couldn't find WD-40 anywhere else.

While I was in the checkout aisle, I detected the unmistakable scent of an SBD bunker blast. It was a stinker, that SBD was.

Kentucky GOPer exposes himself at Belk

Because this is a day ending in y, that means there's another humiliating scandal within the omnipotent Republican Party of Kentucky.

David Narramore, 54, of Whitesburg is one of the leaders of the Kentucky GOP. He heads the county Republicans in Letcher County and sits on the executive committee of the statewide GOP. But on Saturday, he was arrested for exposing himself in a restroom at a Belk department store in Tennessee. Narramore is also accused of resisting arrest.

A Belk worker notified police when Narramore rubbed his foot and exposed his dick.

Another Kentucky GOPer disgraced for life. This is the party that we let run things?

Idaho passes law making it harder to switch jobs

Need to find a better job? Don't you dare do it in Idaho!

Idaho was already becoming an economic basket case because of oppressive right-wing laws like "right-to-work", but now it's believed to be the hardest place in America to find a better job, thanks to a recently passed state law. This new law makes it much easier for companies to enforce noncompete agreements against people who no longer work for these companies. These agreements prevent employees from leaving a company to work for a competitor.

How is this even constitutional? How can a business enforce its will on a worker who no longer works for them? Noncompete agreements are illegal in California - contributing to that state's growing economic dynamism. Why do judges in other states allow them?

Idaho's new law even shifts the burden of proof to workers to show their new jobs won't infringe on past employers' unlimited "right" to Make Money. A state official says the law makes it so hard for workers to show this that it may actually be impossible.

Noncompete agreements must be banned nationwide. In addition, judges must annul these clauses whenever litigation arises from them. Businesses do not own their workers - especially when they no longer work for them! Anyone with even an ounce of common sense can see this.

Connecticut anti-Trump graffiti a hoax

Well, surprise, surprise!

Last month, someone spraypainted graffiti assailing Donald Trump and supporting Bernie Sanders all over Morley Elementary School in Hartford, Connecticut. Anyone with more than 2 atoms of cerebral tissue firing in their noggin should have known it was a hoax by someone who wanted to frame liberals. Now The Hill - which usually cheers everything Trump does - confirms these suspicions.

Stephen Marks, 32, of West Hartford - a Trump supporter - admitted he wrote the graffiti himself to try to set up Trump opponents. He says that's because he considers them "disrespectful towards our government." Now he's been charged with criminal mischief and breach of peace.

What a beezweezer.

A person bunkerooed and thought it was funny

Earlier this evening, I goed to an important family gathering, and guess what happened?

An LAP bunker blast, that's what!

Laughter followed.

Dayton! Fort Thomas! Highland Heights! It's a great place to fart, I mean start!

Have no fear, the July ish is here!

There's a fanzine of fun called The Last Word, and there's a month called July.

This leads me to deduce that the July edition of The Last Word is now published, and you can peep it all!

In this ish...

• My prized Speak & Spell gets its third life.

• A person popped popcorn in a movie theater and ruined an 8th grade outing.

• An idiot doesn't understand chess.

• People blow bubbles with slime.

• And more!

So point your pooper here, if you dare...

Williamstown not caving to ark park tax break

So the ark park - which has already fleeced Kentucky taxpayers - wants a tax break. But the city of Williamstown doesn't seem to be fooled.

The Ark Encounter theme park has failed to bring visitors to the area, despite laughable promises of an economic bonanza. Now the park wants an exemption to the town's recently implemented safety assessment tax, which levies 50 cents per ticket. The park argues that they should be exempt because they're a religious organization.

If they're a ministry, why did they get a taxpayer handout before? You can't argue that you're entitled to a government handout and later use an opposite argument to say you're entitled to a tax exemption. You're either a ministry or you're not. You can't have it both ways.

Indeedity-doodledy, Williamstown Mayor Rick Skinner even said of the ark park, "Everything that we have found is that they are a for-profit company." Other municipal officials say the same thing.

Kind of like my high school.

But I wouldn't be surprised if the ark park goes crying to some right-wing judge to make Williamstown comply with their demands. Taxpayers pay for everything they do.

Tea Party big shot apparently got 15 years for drug trafficking

Remember last year when John Paul Roth Jr. - one of the leaders of the Campbell County Tea Party - got busted for selling opiates?

Well, apparently, he's been convicted and sentenced - and the right-wing media has completely ignored the story. I just checked the Campbell County Detention Center website, and it says Roth was booked today after being sentenced to 5 years and 10 years on 2 counts of selling opiates.

Maybe I'm just misreading it, but it looks like a BTPer is finally going away for awhile.

Behold, your professor!

I don't want to turn this into a personal attack, but this shows just how determined Northern Kentucky University - a state institution - is to advance right-wing causes.

A retired NKU professor just posted this on Facebook...

"The establishment clause says nothing about separation of church and state."

Wrong. It does. That's the whole point of the establishment clause. I don't even need to tell my readers this.

I repeat, the man who posted that was a professor there.

Ridiculous dream about Speak & Spell

Last night, I had a dream that my Speak & Spell (a favorite childhood toy that has recently endured a cycle of death and revival) gained the ability to show old films of Major League Baseball games on its small display.

More celeb look-alikes and bunker blasts, because why the hell not?

I've just been informed of a whole series of celebrity look-alikes at Kroger - and a bunker blast too!

According to legend, a jaunt to Krogie-Wogie yielded a Charlton Heston look-alike and an Erik Estrada look-alike. A previous visit produced a Jeb Bush look-alike.

I've also been told that an LAP bunkeroo was detected at a swimming pool. A group of young adults were lounging around and drinking beer, and when this air biscuit was released, cries of accusation sprang up, but no suspects could be indicted for this crime against humanity.

Puerto Rico votes to become 51st state

This is happening - but only if Congress approves it.

In a referendum yesterday, voters in Puerto Rico voted 97% to 3% to become the 51st state. What does this mean? It was a nonbinding vote, and Congress will still have the final say. Even if Congress approves statehood, the process may take a few years. There actually isn't much chance that the current Congress will approve it.

One can hope that if statehood comes, it brings Puerto Rico's public policies in line with the Constitution. Then again, we don't require California to clean up Pete Wilson's many messes. I'm also under no illusions that Congress would make the Tea Party's laughable proposed state of North Colorado follow the Constitution.

Study ranks Kentucky dead last for economic environment

Don't be fooled by the Richmond Register headline that says Kentucky is only 3rd-worst for jobs. The article reveals that a new study by WalletHub says the Bluegrass State now ranks dead last of all 50 states for economic development.

Kentucky's new #50 ranking is fueled by the state now having the highest tax burden for people of low or middle income levels. This is because of liar Matt Bevin's serial mismanagement and suppression of workers.

Gee, thanks a billion, Matt.

Climate Alliance just added gobs of new territory

Yesterday, the United States Climate Alliance was joined by Delaware, Minnesota, and Virginia - and the territory of Puerto Rico.

Plus, foreign countries plan to negotiate climate matters with the states - so they don't have to deal with the Trump thugocracy.

Thirteen states and territories - and growing. Where's Kentucky? Pooing?

European alt-right turns to piracy

Europe's alt-right is now raising money to target boats that rescue refugees in the Mediterranean Sea.

As aid groups in the Mediterranean have saved some 6,000 refugees so far this year, right-wing extremists are financing boats to hunt them down. They've already disrupted a rescue mission as part of what was described as a trial run.

Isn't this piracy? Aren't there very strict laws against bankrolling thuggery like this? Who in the American alt-right is also financing this effort?

Meanwhile, the European alt-right has hosted pro-Trump events in Europe.

Another day of growth for Climate Alliance

What if I told you Hawaii and Oregon just joined the United States Climate Alliance, bringing the total number of states in this federation to 9?

This Climate Alliance stuff is really amazing!

Climate Alliance expands to 7 states

Wake up, Kentucky!

Wake up, Ohio!

Wake up, Indiana!

The United States Climate Alliance that defies the Trump regime's climate fascism is only 2 days old, but it's already expanded to 7 states. In addition to the founding members - California, New York, and Washington - the federation has now added 4 more states: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

It's gonna be humiliating if Kentucky turns out to be the last state to join, because of Matt Bevin's obstructionism.

Far Right already blowing smoke about Climate Alliance

There's no temper tantrum like an alt-right temper tantrum.

After 3 states formed a federation called the United States Climate Alliance to jointly combat climate change by refusing to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, the right-wing intelligentsia vows retribution against the alliance.

They claim that the federal government preempts these states' actions. No. It does not. It's kind of interesting that the Far Right claims to champion states' rights, but then they say states' rights doesn't protect more liberal states. What about the time Wisconsin pulled out of federal welfare programs? They defended that in the name of states' rights, even though it harmed the public, and there was no legal basis for the state to regulate a federal program like this.

The Far Right also claims the Climate Alliance is an unconstitutional compact between states. Wrong again! The government consented to this federation when it first approved the Paris Agreement. We're on solid legal ground here because it was illegal for Trump to pull out of the accord. So bust goes that bubble.

All this at a time when a majority of the public in every single one of the 50 states supports remaining in the Paris Agreement.

Climate Alliance rains on Trump's parade

With the fascist Trump regime illegally pulling the United States out of the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change, 3 states are asserting their autonomy by sticking to the agreement.

It's called the United States Climate Alliance - a federation of 3 states: California, New York, and Washington. These states provide more than their share of America's positive economic activity - often being forced to finance the burgeoning mismanagement in more rural states - yet actually produce less than their share of harmful carbon dioxide emissions. The alliance is staying in the Paris Agreement and has announced its intent to continue to reduce emissions.

Kentucky needs to join this federation lickety-split.

The United States Climate Alliance. You'll like it.

Trump has 12% approval rating in Michigan

"Butbutbutbut Trump is working-class, don't ya know!"

A new EPIC-MRA poll gives Donald Trump only a 12% job approval rating in Michigan - a state he ostensibly won. And that's with a likely voter screen, which generally favors Republicans.

No wonder Trump's followers have gotten so shrill lately. They're like the dinosaur in the movies whose head has been cut off but still flails around and breaks everything.

Tim mortgages 'Sesame Street' pennant

Why would I have a 'Sesame Street' pennant? Because it bips. And how would I mortgage it? By...bipping!

When I say I mortgaged this pennant, that doesn't mean I went through a bank. It means I placed it perpendicular to the wall to avoid seeing it - much as how you'd mortgage houses in the board game Easy Money.

The full lowdown is in this uproarious new video...

Tea Party proves they're not mature enough to have float in parade

The alt-right has been throwing a skizzum on Facebook nonstop since yesterday afternoon because I exposed their boorish behavior at the Memorial Day parade.

Now they've proven they don't know the difference between a float and the spectators. I admit to turning my back on the Tea Party float and placing my middle finger behind my back - I never denied it - but when you have a float in a parade, you're not supposed to heckle the crowd in return, which is exactly what the Tea Party did.

One of the apologists for the Tea Party's heckling is saying they were "told" by people who were there that I started it by flipping the Tea Party the bird. A couple things: The Tea Party doesn't get to finish it, because a float is held to a different standard than spectators. Plus, who were these people who "told" them? Were there moles in the crowd? The crowd wasn't that big. I think this person is just blowing smoke.

Also, I checked the rules for floats in this parade, and it says political floats may only carry the name of a candidate or public official - not the name of their organization. So the Tea Party broke that rule.

Ooh! Threats!

A real grownup person is now issuing threats after I posted about yesterday's incidents at the parade...

"You need to watch what you say before harassment become a big issue for you."

Ooh! I'm scared!
