War is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance
is strength, Trump is great


News Headline:
“Trump to CDC: These 7 words are now forbidden.”
The word and phrases reportedly banned byt the Centers for Disease Control are: ‘vulnerable,’ ‘entitlement,’ ‘diversity,’ ‘transgender,’ ‘fetus,’ ‘evidence-based’ and ‘science-based.’ ”
Kids, go get grandpa.
Ask him what it was like when 1984 was a warning, not an instruction manual.

9 days until Christmas


Can it be time for QT’s annual reminder that the reindeer’s name isn’t Donner, but Donder?
And  that it isn’t Kris Kringle, but Kriss Kringle?
Evidently.
Ho, Ho, Ho!

So he has a fallback


News Headline:
“USA Today: Trump is ‘not fit to clean the toilets’ at Obama’s presidential library.”
A bit much.
Donald Trump is perfectly fit clean the toilets at Obama’s presidential library.

10 days until Christmas


News Headline: “Thieves stealing Christmas parcels seconds after delivery.”
News Headline: “Thousands of drunk Santas take over Union Square.”
Ho, Ho, Ho!

Greetings and facilitations


News Headline: “Reflections on Sandy Hook, five years later.”
Happy Anniversary from the National Rifle Association.

QT trickle-on economics update


The richest 1 percent of Americans owned 22 percent of the nation’s wealth in 1980, according to a new study.
Now the 1 percent own at least 39 percent.
And the new tax bill hasn’t  passed yet.

Ho, Ho, Ho!
And already here:
Happy Hanukkah!

Rubes and idiots in the news


Bill Britt, an Alabama political reporter, when it looked as if Judge Roy Mooore would win the senatorial race there:
“We’re not the rubes and idiots we’re portrayed to be.”
Evidently not.
Not quite.
