And a Russian Cartoon, showing how much they thought of Barack

The Russians don’t have cartoons like that about President Trump. Then again, he’s not Barack. The Russians did a laser show in Moscow, celebrating Barack’s 53rd birthday. Offered below without further comment, except to say that his sexual preferences were not ‘appreciated’ in Russia the way they would have been in a place like San Francisco.

  1. There is some fella out there who is sick and tired of putting up with skate-boarding in particular and and putting up with her general crap.

    1. Did you see the older gentleman behind the skateboard gal – not even bothering to turn around and look. Guess he’s lived long enough to know better, and ain’t buying it anymore.

  2. That skate riding blond and the pretty girl in a defensive stance will kill us old farts quicker then Hitlery falling before the van…

  3. The Bangles…another 80’s flashback from a [now] official old guy that remembers the group. (“old” it’s only a construct…right?)

    You had to include the girl in red within this screwed up matrix we call reality. The acknowledging smile is a nice touch.

    “Listening”, the hardest thing in this day and age when people now operate as if Facebook commenting is now allowed for real…in public, to you…because [pick a subject — like masks, Covid, being safe, Trump…]

    Can there be anytime in our history when I don’t have to look at Barack and The Mrs…please…hurts my brain knowing what these cretins did to our country.

    1. Lead singer of The Bangles did a nice cover of “Feel Like Making Love” with a different group that had her main squeeze in it.

        1. What year would that’ve been? And would you’ve been knifed in the kidneys by someone with a ring on her finger already? If not, all’s good! Full steam ahead in the parallel universe!

          1. According to the youtube info blurb on this one, it was taken from ABC’s “In Concert” live at Riverbend, Cincinnati, Ohio on July 23rd, 1991.
            With the entertainment world, no idea what their status is today.

          2. Frank, they were still touring in 2019 – they did a concert at Huntington Beach, CA in the summer.

        2. Yes, Sussana Hoffs was a looker (and still is, from what I hear). Best musician ever? Nah. All great musicians were ugly: Frank Zappa, Janis Joplin, Tiny Tim, the list is endless.

          Now Belinda Carlisle, or better yet, Linda Ronstadt, also eye candy but not the best musicians that ever trod the soil. Too pretty.

  4. Sometimes a banana is just a banana.

    If it was some genetically-oppressive and guilty guilty guilty white dude we could be pretty sure the banana was symbolic, but #44 being of the noble ancestry he is, maybe it’s just a genuine Cavendish.

    1. I remember the first time I saw the Matrix. I was in San Rafael, CA, working. Late afternoon, time to kill. I walked into a mall and they had a theater where the Matrix was advertised. I hadn’t heard of it and thought I’d take a chance with it. The movie kind of blew my hair back. I walked out saying – wow!
