It doesn’t really seem like the Swamp is being drained. Maybe it’s part of a longer term strategy, but so far, there seems to be very little movement in the direction of changing the way the political class conducts business. The bureaucracy remains out of control, and his cabinet picks have done little to reform their departments.

There are a zillion ways to make coffee, many of them complicated and insanely expensive. But after trying most, I can tell you that simple and cheap is the best way to brew the finest damn cup of joe you’ve ever tasted.

Yes, Donkey Sauce is just a silly name for aioli. Yes, he wears pinky rings and his goatee looks ridiculous. Yes, the staff at his El Burro Borracho in Laughlin, NV, isn’t waiting for that third Michelin star. But through hard work, Guy Fieri transformed himself from a short-order cook in the sticks into a one-man industry that has boosted the fortunes of countless mom-and-pop diners, hired countless people, and entertained millions. RTWT at: In Praise of Guy Fieri  |  Ricochet

If I were a religious person I would have to say I do believe Satan was involved in our last Presidential election. If Satan had kept himself out of the election then everyone eligible to vote would have voted for Donald Trump, since they would not have been blinded to the truth: that Donald Trump is the best thing to have ever happened to our country. RTWT at: Trump Evil?

I had to hang myself over the edge to get this shot. Not for the faint of heart! But when you’re at a height like this, the world below you just seems a different world. It takes away the fear one would normally have, and gives a sense of peace instead. Photo and caption by Albert Dros  — 2017 National Geographic Travel Photographer Of The Year 

You don’t see many bullet bras these days but they were very popular during the 1940s and 1950s. They were made famous by the sweater girls (various Hollywood actresses who adopted the fashion of wearing tight sweaters over a cone or bullet-shaped bra), and Madonna even wore one designed by Jean Paul Gaultier during her Blond Ambition Tour back in 1990. RTWT at: Bullet Bras Were All The Rage In The 1940s And 1950s, And These 10+ Pics Will Poke Your Eyes

    This post is perfection. Mindless culture served just the right temp.

    You might think I’m kidding, but I’m not. I like my culture brain-neutral. It helps take the edge off when the politics and work load are running too hot.

    As an aside note,pull all Yanks outta Afghanistan. Let the Afghans grow bunker crops of opium,and have the world market reward them. But mainly,get the f**king f**k out of that sucking black hole of relentless doom.

    Best Makeover Ever? Wow,where do I go to sign up? In my 20’s, I looked like young Rebecca de Mornay. Forty years later,I see Christopher Walken from the “Bai Bai Bai” commercial staring back at me from the mirror.
    Funny thing is,I’ve had a lifelong crush on Mr Walken. Irony.
