Has Donald Trump Been To Church In D.C. Other Than On “National Prayer Day”?

by Anura Guruge

Click to access “” original. Google “Trump attending church in DC” for more stories.

This, by “Huff Post” was in January 2012. Click image to access original article with PICTURE GALLERY.

Today was a Sunday, and for once, Trump was in D.C. — and was NOT playing golf.

Then it occurred to me. Other than on the much publicized “National Prayer Day“, I have not heard of Trump attending church in D.C. — and given that I am a news junkie I tend to hear/see this stuff.

Obama and other presidents made a point of going to church in D.C. on a fairly regular basis.

Strange this.

Trump is supposed to be our Evangelical President — albeit with his propensity for groping females.

So, what gives?

How can HE get away with this. This impunity ….

Waste of time & money.

This is NOT going to make a BLIND bit of difference.

There is way, way, way TOO MUCH money in opioids for the pharma companies, the doctors (AND NURSES) that write prescriptions and for the other drug dealers. It is like everything else. Money talks.

This report will NOT convince a single doctor, patient or addict. They are all into this hook, like and bloody sinker.

This report actually made me angry because of its impotence.

It is like guns, the NRA and the politicians. Where are the opioid control laws? Just talk. Just chatter.

Common sense does NOT prevail. Money talks.

So, pathetic.

Would You Get Operated By A HEAVILY Tattooed Surgeon?

by Anura Guruge

Just an EXAMPLE.

Not the real thing — i.e., THE surgeon.

Don’t get TOO excited. No, no … I do NOT need any surgery at present, as far as I know. This was NOT for I.

Yes, I know I am strange. I have never shied away from that.

If this surgery was for I, there would be no question. I would have got up walked out and while doing so told the surgeon, in no uncertain terms, that I was not amused that HE wasted my time.

I already told you that I am strange … right.

One of my many foibles is a rabid aversion to any form of body mutilation and alteration.

Other than cutting my hair and nails, I refuse to have any other — medically unnecessary — alterations done to my body. Yes, I had to have some teeth extracted and I only consented under pain and duress.

I, despite my cultural upbringing, am against ear piercing! My adoptive mother, 29-years ago, was aghast that I would not have my newly born daughter’s ears pierced. She had arrived with a pair of gold earrings. I told her that I did NOT have the right to mutilate my daughter.

As all three of my daughters will tell you, in a mixture of glee and dismay, I have NEVER consented to them getting their ears pierced.

To say that I am against circumcision is an understatement. I think that any parent who gets their child circumcised is a CHILD ABUSER and I will tell that to their face — and I have told so to many a parent!

So, suffice to say, I am not a fan of tattooing!

Yes, my wife has one, but it is small, it is on her ankle and it is of the Sun. I don’t have to see it often. She had it done before we met. Yes, I made an exception. But, I will NOT let her perform any surgery on I, either.

To, I it all has to do with the state of one’s mind.

I am fine with the way my body is. My body is a mess and can be greatly enhanced and embellished BUT I will not resort to that. I am happy to live with what I got.

A surgeon with EXTENSIVE tattoos looks unprofessional!

I question is judgement and IF I meet him again I will ask him that to his face.

I already asked him a couple of questions he did NOT appreciate and he decided to get in MY FACE to respond. What he did not realize that folks like him scare me none.

So, that is my view. I would NOT TRUST a professional with extensive tattoos. Period.

Call me strange. That I am.

But, I have my standards and I live by them.

Over to you

Confused As To Why UK PM Theresa May Is Concerned About Trump’s New Tariffs — UK Hardly Makes Any Cars!

by Anura Guruge

Click image to access “Reuters” original.

Click to ENLARGE. Source cited in caption.

OK. To be fair, Theresa May, the British Prime Minister, did call on Thursday to talk with Trump about tariffs and OTHER matters (e.g., ISIS and N. Korea). So, that was before Trump had explicitly said that HIS TRADE WAR will involve levying a tax on ‘European‘ cars.

It was the TAX on ‘European’ cars — in particular BRITISH cars — that got me thinking … and then rather upset.

We, the Brits, no longer OWN many car brands! All of our ICONIC British cars companies/brands — Rolls Royce, Bentley, Jaguar, Mini, Land Rover — are owned by FOREIGN entities, in some cases the dreaded, despicable Germans!

Aston Martin and Morgan are about the only ones that are not owned outright by foreign companies. This is so sad. Breaks my heart. That Rolls Royce/Bentley are owned by BMW/Volkswagen is beyond the pale and that my beloved Jaguar brand belongs to Indians makes me cringe.

Not sure where they get the $9.8 Billion in UK vehicle exports to the US. That must be the cars shipped from the UK. That does not mean all the money goes to the UK.

Did You See This AR-15 Lunacy From A Pennsylvania Church, Run My Another ‘Moon’ — Creepy!

by Anura Guruge

From the U.K. “Daily Mail“.

Click here to access article with LOTS more disturbing pictures.

This is frigging disturbing and creepy. What is wrong with these people.

This comes across as another Moonie cult. Some of these people. Talk about penile envy.

I just don’t know. I despair.

This on the same day that “Dick’s Sporting Goods” showed that you always have the option of doing the right thing.

Just wanted to make sure that YOU saw this in case, unlike I, you do NOT read the U.K. “Daily Mail” (online) a FEW times a day.

Three Users That Look Identical — Like Identical Triplets.

Click to ENLARGE.

Well, I haven’t been called “Eagle Eyes” most of my life for nothing.

I happened to notice, at a glance, that three of the four bloggers that liked this post (above) appeared to look the same.

So, I went looking. This is what I found:

Same, rather good looking, person? Stock photo lifted from the Web?

I actually think it is the SAME person, using three fake names and one fake photo.

Nice names. They look and sound so real and genuine. I particularly like ‘Mina Moore’.

Yes, that person is trying to gain traction on WP so as to promote his/her own Websites. That is fine. Just be classy enough to use three different stock photos. {Smile}
