Black Hills Bighorn Mountains Historical Foundation commissioned an art piece to Commemorate the 120th Anniversary of the Little Big HornBighorn. When the painting was unveiled all present were shocked by what was represented. In the center of the Painting was a large throne upon which sat a fish with a halo and that fish was surrounded by hundreds of Sioux engaged in various forms of sexual intercourse.

The board members were furious and one dowager cried, “What is the  meaning of this?”
The artist replied, “It’s my interpretation of Custer’s last words... Holy mackerel! Look at all the fucking Indians!”


It's a classic.   I suggest a small tweak,  for geographical accuracy.

The battle was in the Powder River country, a couple hundred miles northwest of the Black Hills.

I once heard it with “Holy Cow!”

Ha!   Yeah,  sounds familiar to me,  too.   Mackerel is a funnier mental image,  tho.

I've got to hand it to Josh - even his echoes are well researched.

Well I got thrown off Twitter for the day..

Terence k. Williams tried to clap back at me and I got the boot. I guess my arrow hit the mark.

Almost sorry what’s his face isn’t here to call me a racist.

The Secretary of State of Michigan is a criminal, according to the president, for sending out 7.7 million absentee ballots "without authorization." Trump explained that this will lead to great voter fraud.

1) The SoS of Michigan did not send out 7.7 million absentee ballots. Applications were sent out.
2) Sending out absentee ballot applications is legal
3) The SoS is authorized to do that and needs nobody else's say so to do it.
4) There is no evidence to support Trump's claims of rampant voter fraud in Michigan or anywhere else.

The small VA study that found hydroxychloroquine is more often harmful than helpful was authored by enemies of the Trump administration, if the president is to be believed. No evidence, just hand-waving.

The president was named Michigan Man-of-the-Year, despite nobody's remembering it and there not being any such award.

There may be something he will not lie about, but we haven't found it yet.

heh

Another day, another bit of petty BS and all you have to say is "heh."

No opinions about the proposed first nuke test since 1992?

Nothing to say about his assertion that he has the power to dictate the churches be opened?

No deep applause for the former "Michigan Man of the Year?"

Former Trump aide seems to have provided faulty masks to the Indian Health Service.

Quote
A former White House aide won a $3 million federal contract to supply respirator masks to Navajo Nation hospitals in New Mexico and Arizona 11 days after he created a company to sell personal protective equipment in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Zach Fuentes, President Donald Trump’s former deputy chief of staff, secured the deal with the Indian Health Service with limited competitive bidding and no prior federal contracting experience.

The IHS told ProPublica it has found that 247,000 of the masks delivered by Fuentes’ company — at a cost of roughly $800,000 — may be unsuitable for medical use. An additional 130,400, worth about $422,000, are not the type specified in the procurement data, the agency said.

What’s more, the masks Fuentes agreed to provide — Chinese-made KN95s — have come under intense scrutiny from U.S. regulators amid concerns that they offered inadequate protection.

Trump is a less articulate version of Big Dan Teague.

I’m shocked!

One would think Trump would jump at the chance to hang a black man in the Whitehouse.
