Valerie Curbelo needed a cigarette.   90 minutes is was much to long on the Southwest Flight from  Portland to Sactown. So she lit up on flight.  Tisk, this was no. Landing somewhere so she could have a puff wasn’t an option.  So she did what every smoker needing smoke would do. She threatens to “Fucking” kill everyone on board.    Orange is the new black for Curbelo as she waits to plead her case in the I Street Jail .

He once played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers  and the Oakland Raiders  and Warren Sapp say’s Jami Cantor,who worked with him at the NFL network got it wrong.   Sapp is one of several Network executive named in a sexual harassment suit.   Wednesday, on the Andy Slater show Sapp told Slater he did not give Cantor the sex toys he tweeted about, but gave them to three women who worked in makeup at NFL Network when they asked him to.   “No, nah,” Sapp told Slater when asked if he gave Cantor sex toys a gifts. “The sex toys are little vibrators. Little toys for ladies that move around a little bit.

The Buzz : 2018 Kia Stinger is on Fiyah!


Image result for Kia Stinger

Kia sports car?  A legitimate sports sedan by Kia?  Kia, say what?   Kia? 

Car and Driver says: Back in 1964, the great Muhammad Ali famously taunted heavyweight-title opponent Sonny Liston, saying he’d “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” in their upcoming match.  Our track testing revealed that the hottest Kia does indeed sting like a bee: 60 mph comes up in 4.6 seconds, it circulates the skidpad at 0.91 g, and it stops from 70 mph in 164 feet. Kia claims that the car’s top speed is governed at 167 mph. Those numbers match up well with larger, much more expensive performance sedans like some that competed in a recent comparison test , including the Audi A6 3.0T Competition and the Cadillac CTS V-Sport.

Road and Track (Sept 2017)  If you’re in the market for a 4-series Gran Coupe, you should check your brand prejudice and take this car seriously. BMW and Audi will, if they have any sense.

The Drive.com (Dec 2017): Human Drivers, Lend Me Your Votes: The Kia Stinger Should Be the 2018 North American Car of the Year.    As an automotive writer who’s blessed (or cursed) with strong opinions on cars , my vote for the North American Car of the Year award is usually a slam dunk. Not this year.  The 2018 Kia Stinger and equally-new Honda Accord have had me straddling the fence and engaging in Socratic arguments with myself. But decision time is at hand, so here goes: The Kia Stinger is my 2018 North American Car of the Year. And my esteemed fellow jurors, if they’re not idiots, should agree with me.   LAWRENCE ULRICH

Random Stuff

In 2016 Hyundai Motor Group (Hyundai, Kia, Genesis) became the third largest automaker in the world behind Toyota and Volkswagen.

The Hyundai Motor Group isn’t just interested in making good basic cars, they are making a statement.  They are assembling some of the best names in the industry. I  Luc Donckerwolke who once was the Design Director for Vw’s  Bentley, Lamborghini and Audi is now heading the new Genesis brand.

The challenge for Kia is to convince someone who is in the market for a sports sedan, to drop 39K for a Kia.  .

The automotive writers say, in the last few years Cadillac has been building some of the best cars on the market.  American cars,,that will out handle and in many cases out run the best from Europe.   But the public isn’t buying.   So it may be a tough sell for Kia.

For some its the pedigree,  if it isn’t a Lexus or from Europe, it wont do ?

But I’m that guy in the Charger Hellcat, in outrageous Red . I’d be sipping on my Slurpee at some traffic light in the Napa Valley.   Smoking the best from Germany and even keeping up with a few $400k Supercars.

Grey Poupon? No Frenches Dammit! 

If the pedigree isn’t important to you. Test drive the Stinger GT .  It does have one thing the other don’t.  A 10 year 100,000 mile warranty.

12 of the Craziest ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Fan Theories


Since the credits rolled on “The Force Awakens,” fans have taken to the Internet to theorize the answers to the dangling mysteries left unsolved. Who or what is Snoke? Who are Rey’s parents? What’s the deal with the reclusive Luke Skywalker? In the two years since “Episode VII,” theories have ranged from possible, unlikely, to straight up baffling.  With “The Last Jedi” right around the corner we’re looking at some of the best — and craziest — theories from around the web.

The Knights of Ren were Luke’s Students

Of all the theories out there, this one rings seems pretty plausible. Around the halfway point of “The Force Awakens,” Rey is given Luke’s old lightsaber — the one he lost in his fight with Darth Vader in “The Empire Strikes Back.” When she touches it she sees a number of visions, one of them being of Kylo Ren and a group of equally hooded baddies called The Knights of Ren.

Beyond the Primary: The Death of the GOP


 

An an Independent, I’m very concerned for the future of the Republican Party.  In short time pillars of the GOP has been dismantled .  Much of the damage can be attributed  to President Trump’s ineptitude. However much of it lies at the feet of elected Senators and members of the house, who have chosen party over country as they do not want to offend the narrow base of Trump supporters who’ll they’ll need in the primary.

The Republican party has had a long fragile relationship with women, blacks and Latinos.     Within the first year of his presidency, Millennials, LGBTQ, communities and other groups of color have joined that long and growing list of Americans who have been negatively affected by the presidents policies.  A gap that is widening by the day.

Winning the Battle and Losing the War

Within the next few years, once solid red states will become purple. Trumps voters overall were considerably older than Hillary Clinton.  The current average age of  baby boomers is 50.   After four years of President Trump, how does the party  broaden its appeal?

Today, the  future seems to be of little interest to  stake holders.  There is little opposition to the Presidents Policies, the focus in 2017 is a win at all costs.

While I’m not enamored by either party. I’m convinced we need at the minimum   two parties.  The question is, will one of those parties be the Republican party ?

RHOA: S10 ep6 “All Aboard The Shady Express”


Image result for the real housewives of atlanta season 10 episode 6

I’m not ready to give Marlo Hampton a peach YET!  But I want more of her and Nene clearly needs her.   As Nene was flapping her gums, Marlo was fixing her wig and her bob that had collapsed on her head.  Marlo not only fixed that wig (how does someone have a problem with a wig?) but she tighten up Nene’s clothes all the while Nene going off on Porsha.

Last night’s episode began where the last episode left off with Nene’s and Porsha’s  petty argument in San Francisco.    While the fight began with the beef between to of them it evolved into Nene’s defense of Kandi.  Nene suggests Porsha’s should have been fired along with Phaedra.   As Nene is being pushed out the door, Sheree stays with Porsha.

The next morning, the ladies board a motorized cable car for a tour on the city.  On the tour Kenya shares pictures of her paternal grandmother who raised her.  Kenya is leaving a day early to attend her funeral.  Kenya’ distress hits Porsha who just lost a family member.   Cynthia notices and comforts Porsha.

Say what you want about Cynthia, but she seems to be the only real adult in Atlanta this season.   She is loyal to a fault, and while Porsha is on the outs with most of these ladies, Cynthia isn’t as cold as say Nene.  She has been drugged through the mud by Nene and tells Porsha its gonna take a while. Nene, hates that Cynthia is no longer following her like a lap dog and she hates being number two to Kenya.

Porsha apologies to Kandi, again. Not sure she is sincere, perhaps she thinks if Kandi opens up a little, the other ladies will come around.  Right now, she is the outcast.

In Chinatown,Porsha, Sheree, and Marlo decide that they should do something nice for Kenya that night since she’s having a hard time.  with a cardboard groom. Someone went on the street and filled the room  with a random gay audience. This could have gone south, but  Kenya went with it .

 Porsha Williams shared some of her wisdom with us.   In San Francisco’s Chinatown,she says “I feel like I just stepped out the trolley, and now I’m in Tokyo!”  

 At  Fisherman’s Wharf, Nene tells her circle that Sheree’s incarcerated boyfriend is a con man who was arrested for conning a company out of “like $4 million.”  We see a flashback when Nene and Sheree was talking about the notorious Tyrone. ,Kandi says, “I hope he don’t con her out of Chateau Sheree.”   Kenya comes quick with  ” Well, it’s not in her name so he can’t do that,”

 

After a ninety minute bus ride, the ladies boarded a wine train.    After Porsha returns from a restroom break, she finds herself sitting with Kenya and Kandi. Can someone say awkward.    The tension breaks after Porsha orders a Vegan meal and shares that she in now 175 pounds.

Nene who is sometimes the expert on all things told the group Sheree’s boyfreind was in the joint for “tricking the stocks”  Sheree laughs and corrects her “It wasn’t stocks that he went in for it was security fraud and wire fraud!”   GET IT RIGHT BITCH!

Marlo brought her skills to the vineyard.  As the over the top flirty owner was feeding grapes to the ladies, Marlo deep throated the grapes, as to say, bitches this is how you get a summer home.     Grapes are stomped wine is enjoyed all is good in Napa.

Kenya has exited to attend her grandmothers funeral.  With Kenya gone, Marlo  says “Let’s play a game: How many believe that Kenya is really married? Raise your hand,”asked the group, do they believe she’s married? and she shadily thinks its weird Cynthia hasn’t met him.

Cynthia leaves the table and in her confessional says “These girls are a trip; they rained on Kenya’s parade when she didn’t have a man, they rain on it extra hard now that she does have one.”

While it may have been all in fun, Cynthia is a loyal friend and there is a part of her is hurt that her bestie didn’t tell her, didn’t introduce her  didn’t include in the wedding.

Horrible Just Plain Horrible


 

Image result for al franken

The Gentleman from Minnesota who apologized to his victims, said he was embarrassed by his actions.  The senator who has publicly said he would fully co-operate with the investigation.  Al Franken is one of the first men attwho’ve been accused was not investigated, the majority of his peers believed he should resign.

The Gentleman from Minnesota was the Democrats sacrificial Lamb.  As of last week, the Republican can no longer say, what about Al Franken.

Everyone’s attacking Roy Moore ,what about  Al Franken?

 

Al Franken

A few weeks ago Leeann Tweeden said Franken forcibly kissed her and groped her in 2006.  There was a picture of Franklin pretending to grope her breast while she was asleep . Franken apologized to Tweeden.  Tweeden accepted his apology.

PHOTO: Leeann Tweeden posted this photo online that she says was taken while she was asleep on a flight back from a 2006 USO trip. She says it shows then-comedian Al Franken, who is now a U.S. Senator, groping her.

“I don’t know what was in my head when I took that picture, and it doesn’t matter,” he said. “There’s no excuse. I look at it now and I feel disgusted with myself. It isn’t funny. It’s completely inappropriate. It’s obvious how Leeann would feel violated by that picture. And, what’s more, I can see how millions of other women would feel violated by it — women who have had similar experiences in their own lives, women who fear having those experiences, women who look up to me, women who have counted on me.”

Sen. Al Franken Says He’ll Cooperate With Investigation Into Allegations He Groped Four Women

Since then six other women came forward Lindsay Menz, accused Franken, of touching her butt as her husband was taking a picture of her at the 2010 Minnesota State Fair.

Franken released a statement after reports multiple women recalled similar incidents as Menz, saying, “I’ve met tens of thousands of people and taken thousands of photographs, often in crowded and chaotic situations. I’m a warm person; I hug people. I’ve learned from recent stories that in some of those encounters, I crossed a line for some women — and I know that any number is too many.”

“Some women have found my greetings or embraces for a hug or photo inappropriate, and I respect their feelings about that,” Franken continued. “I’ve thought a lot in recent days about how that could happen, and recognize that I need to be much more careful and sensitive in these situations. I feel terribly that I’ve made some women feel badly and for that I am so sorry, and I want to make sure that never happens again.”

Stephanie Kemplin, said Franken groped her breast while posing for a photo when she was deployed in Kuwait in 2003 and Franken was there as part of a USO tour.

Tina Dupuy, said Franken in a photo op during President Obama’s Inauguration,  put his hand on her waist, grabbing a handful on flesh.

One anonymous accuser said Franken cupped her butt in 2008.  Another anonymous accuser said Franken gave her a wet open mouth kiss in 2006.  A third anonymous accuser, told Politico she ducked to avoid Franken kissing her as she tried to leave a radio station.  She said as she left the room he allegedly said “It’s my right as an entertainer,” 

In a statement on Facebook, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand wrote: “While Senator Franken is entitled to have the Ethics Committee conclude its review, I believe it would be better for our country if he sent a clear message that any kind of mistreatment of women in our society isn’t acceptable by stepping aside to let someone else serve.”

Ray Moore

 

Teresa Moore, former deputy district attorney told CNN.   “It was common knowledge that Roy dated high school girls, everyone we knew thought it was weird,” We wondered why someone his age would hang out at high school football games and the mall … but you really wouldn’t say anything to someone like that.

On 13 November 2017, The New Yorker  reported ,based on interviews with multiple local sources, that Alabama Senate candidate and twice-removed state Supreme Court judge Roy Moore had been banned from the mall in Gadsden, Alabama because of his predatory behavior toward young girls.

The report, however, is based on sources recalling a rumor, in some cases. Those rumors have been corroborated by news reports of accusations leveled at Moore by at least nine women who were in their teens and twenties at the time.

Becky Gray ,told ABC News  said he was banned from the mall where she worked after she complained about his repeated, unwanted advances toward her. “I went to my manager and talked to him about it and asked him, basically, what could be done,”“Later on, he…came back through my department and told me that [Moore] had been banned from the mall.”

When Sean Hannity  asked if it would be “normal” for a man in his 30s to date a young woman who was 17 or 18. Mr Moore replied it was “not normal”. Then Mr Hannity asked if Mr Moore had dated teenage girls as an older man. “I don’t remember ever dating any girl without the permission of her mother.”

Roy Moore has continued to deny or acknoledge any of the women. He has never refuted  the mall ban or statements made by former colleagues.

Roy Moore recently told a  reporter the women who have accused him of sexual miscounduct were engaged in “ritual defamation” against him.

“I do not know them. I had no encounter with them. I have never molested anyone,” Moore said in an interview filmed at the Alabama Republican Party’s headquarters in suburban Birmingham. “When I saw the pictures on the advertisements of my opponent, I did not recognize any of these people.”

I’ve stood up for moral values, so they’re attacking me in that way,” he said. “When this race is over, on the 12th of December, it will be over.”

Judy Reyher The Lovely Racist


Image result for judy reyher

 

There is quite a bit of fake news out there.  Some of the news created by my fellow bloggers is fake. A portion of the story is based on fact and the other part is pure fiction.  Some of us cut and paste stories we think our followers might find interesting.  Not all of us fact check.    I’ve been guilty of pasteing a story that was untrue.    There was a story a few years back about Justin Bieber being pummeled by a baseball player.  It was the time when Bieber was a staple in the media for acting out.   One of my friends who has a very popular blog called me and said the story I posted was false. I removed it.

A few months ago I found a story about one of the housewives, it was from a fairly reliable tabloid blog, but the story was false.  A friend of one of the housewives called me and told me the story was complete fiction.  I didn’t remove it because it was a popular story.   Its all about the traffic and I need all the traffic I can get.   But it didn’t sit well with me.  Credibility.

Every now and then someone working for a national news source sees a story that seems credible and to beat the other networks they put the story on he air without checking all the dots.  This brings me to the Lovely Racists  , I’ve seen this story about a woman who hates blacks ,Democrats and Muslims on social media for a few days. After a bit of research she’snot fake news, she’s a real honest to goodness racist.

I will have to assume there was not enough space for her story on Cable news.  With The Donald, throwing shiny balls in the air to distract us from RUSSIA! and the hourly sexual harassment scandals and Ray ( if your 14 and you know it-sit with me!) Moore election saga, there was no room for the Lovely Racist.

The lovely woman in the picture is Judy Reyher she is the newest member in Congress representing Colorado’s 47th District.  She replaced Clarice Navarro who gave up her seat in Congress to work with the Trump Administration.

Reyher is from Swink, Colorado a town of 700 people near the southeast corner of the state.

The former Otero County GOP chair, won the appointment to Navarro’s seat on a 6-5 vote.   A few days later her opponent, Tamra Axworthy, challenged the results of the vacancy election, a Republican legislator told Reyher to expect a primary, a progressive organization was calling on her to step aside before being sworn in, she was apologizing for social media posts some found “offensive and racist,” the state GOP chairman called Reyher to express his “displeasure and disagreement” with her social media posts, and the state Democratic Party was urging Republicans to replace her on next year’s ballot.

 The Word is Vet

(make a ding sound in your head)
(verb) 1.make a careful and critical examination of (something).
Ms Reyher has had (lets call them special views) for many years.  Not sure how the Republican Committee missed them. Ms Reyher isn’t a shrinking violet.

A blogger reviewed her controversial posts on her Facebook account .  Where are lovely racist called   African-Americans “hatred filled beings,”and one saying that Muslims came to America to “make certain we stop enjoying . pork, beer, dogs, bikinis, Jesus and freedom of speech.”   There were quite a few that questioned whether Barack Obama was born in the United States

Duh!  we didn’t know?

Jeff Hays, the chairman of the state Republican Party,  reportedly”called her and expressed his displeasure and disagreement in no uncertain terms,”

In a statement, however, Hays said he wouldn’t be the “arbiter of controversial statements, however ridiculous or offensive.

According to The Denver Post. Her posts were first criticized in 2016, and garnered new attention after her appointment last week.

Come on Judy, Tell us how you really feel! 

In an interview with The Denver Post’s Jesse Paul, Reyher said that “the black community and the Democrats are the most racist group of people that exist,” adding that blacks “hate white people with a passion.”

Regarding Muslims,  “If they hate everything we stand for, what the hell they doing here other than to destroy us as a country?”

Reyher says nothing she has said about Obama has had anything to do with race — “I hated the black half of Obama as much as I hated the white half” — and that she doesn’t have blanket beliefs about any group of people.

“I’m not going to be painted into what they consider their corner,” she told The Post. “Nothing that I have posted has been against Muslims. It’s been against the terrorists. Nothing that I have posted is anywhere near racist. That has become the game word of the Democrat community, to say anybody that gets in their way. I am in a seat that they are targeting.

“I just am not going to stand for this stuff being thrown at me because they don’t like me,” she said. “… We’re not mistreating anyone.”   Democrats are after her seat in

state legislature. “I am here today to inform all the hate-filled left wingers that I am not backing down and will serve the great people of my district with both distinction and fervor,” she said. “The far left is so desperate to win my seat that they have concocted a ridiculous narrative of racism and hate.”””

After the first Denver Post interview ,there was a firestorm .

 “I would like to apologize for the comments or posts on Facebook that have been found offensive and racist. However, the fact of the matter is, I am not a racist. This country was founded by immigrants, and I embrace all Americans, no matter their walk of life. Diversity is what makes America, America.” She added, “These claims of racism by the Denver Post are absolutely deplorable, and I will not be distracted by them.

She voiced the same belief in a post about Michelle Obama that has since been deleted, writing that she is “evil personified with the power to brainwash our youth and feel good about it” as well as “one of the biggest racists ever to live.”

On her Facebook page, Reyher has reposted a meme questioning why Muslims come to the U.S. if they “hate pork, beer, bikinis, Jesus and freedom of speech.” Another that she shared said: “White Irish slaves were treated worse than any other race in the U.S. When was the last time you heard an Irishman (complaining) how the world owes them a living?”

The Post noted that it hadn’t labeled Reyher a racist.

The lovely Ms Reyher will run for her seat next year
