And Old Man Potter likes what he sees

Old Man Potter
News Headline: “Top 1 percent gets biggest tax cut under Trump plan.”
News Headline:
“60 percent of Ted Cruz’s tax cut goes to top 1 percent.”
News Headline:
“More than half of Jeb Bush’s tax cuts would benefit the top 1 percent.”
The system works.

Cheese in the news

Cheese
News Headline: “Cop sentenced for cheese smuggling.”
The cop was hoping for probation.
But jail was a fetaccompli.

We have seen the present, and it does not work

Framingham State
The chief diversity and inclusion officer of Framingham State University filed a bias-incident report on the sighting of a laptop with a Confederate flag sticker and recommended that anyone who was “impacted” by the incident seek counseling.

QT loud guy at the end of the bar update

Donald Trump
Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press” regarding Donald Trump’s continued insistence that he saw what he saw in New Jersey after 9/11:
“And that’s the thing, you can’t crawl inside Donald Trump’s head.”
Wait.
Warning.
Do not attempt to visualize the inside of Donald Trump’s head.
Too late?
Sorry.

Breaking news. . . .


The News
News Headline:
“Humanity’s future in the balance at UN climate summit.”
Probably should take time to give this thought.
News Headline: “Adorable puppy cuddles with stuffed animal and snores.”
OK. So that was close.

QT 2016 vote count countdown update

Ted Cruz
News Headline: “Bloomberg: Ted Cruz ‘says some of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard.’ ”
If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.

28 days until Christmas

Santa Robbery
News Headline: “Santa Claus gets bail after service station robbery.”
News Headline: “Christmas elves attacked at ¬†lighting ceremony in London.”
News Headline: “Black Friday brawls erupt in U.S. shopping malls.”
Ho, Ho, Ho!

And one other thing. . . .

Happy Thanksgiving!

Turkeys in the news

Wattle and Snood
Rush Limbaugh regarding the message of Thanksgiving:
“The true story of Thanksgiving is how socialism failed. With all the–”
Oh, be quiet.
And can it be time for QT’s annual reminder that the thing below a turkey’s beak is a wattle and the thing above the beak is a snood?
Evidently.

QT trickle-on economics update

Trickle-On
News Headline: “A NYC steakhouse is offering a $45,000 Thanksgiving dinner with diamonds in the stuffing.”
News Headline: “Thanksgiving food drive locations and how to donate.”
The two stories seemed to go together, for some reason.
