PBA MEETS NEXT WEDNESDAY FOR THE FINAL TIME OF THE YEAR

 


That’s right. The PBA doesn’t meet in December, so next Wednesday, Nov. 15th, will be the final time in 2017 to make up for all those drinks and dinners you missed earlier in the year. The open bar will be pressed into service around 5:00 as usual, and our best guess is that turkey with all the fixins’ will be on the buffet table alongside an alternate dish and a more than ample arrangement of hors d’oeuvres. (It took me six months before I learned how to spell that damn word and I still get it wrong sometimes!) As was once heard at the gatherings of friends, “Be there or be square!”


POA NEWS



Nov. 3rd


Please see the NBC Bay Area news coverage of a controversial new booking policy put in place. We disagree with the decision that subjects with any amount under a $15,000 warrant could not be accepted into County Jail. The continued political decisions of Proposition 47, Proposition 57, and now this policy, takes away needed discretion for officers on the street and allows criminals to victimize this city.
 

Prop 47

Prop 57

The POA is consulting with the Chief, who shows support for us in this matter. More to come.

Horrifically, another mass shooting has occurred in the United States, this time in Sutherland Springs, Texas. The coward walked into the First Baptist Church with his rifle and killed 26 people. The youngest killed was a 17-month-old little girl, the oldest was 77 years of age. Ten of the 20 people wounded remain in critical condition.
 
If it wasn't for the brave and heroic actions of a private citizen that confronted this coward with his rifle, this tragedy could have been a lot worse and more innocent lives would have been lost.
 
Although we don't know all the facts surrounding this heinous act, it should not stop us, as members of law enforcement, to examine whether or not we are doing all we can to advocate for additional mental health services for those clearly in need. The second mass shooting in such a short amount of time should also give us pause to reflect on every contributing factor that has led some to believe that gunning down innocent Americans OK.
 
With Thanksgiving Day coming up later this month, and as we start gathering with our families, remember to include the victims of Las Vegas, New York and Sutherland Springs, Texas in your prayers.
 
Please take care of each other.
 
Paul and Johnny

MAIL CALL



Nov. 3rd


To the reader who posed the question in an email several days ago, the answer is Yes. The question was, “Is Steve Marcotte still the go-to guy for the purchase of a new car?”

The question was received about ten days ago, but I forgot about it until earlier this week. And I couldn’t come up with who asked the question as I had already emptied my Trash, but I did remember the question.

An inquiry to Steve confirmed he is still a broker for all cars and trucks. new and used.

It has been common knowledge around SJPD’s hallowed halls that most car buyers can do better by going through Steve for the purchase of a vehicle than they can on their own. And that normally includes discounts from Costco, AAA, credit unions, etc.

To touch bases with Steve at Silicon Valley Auto Sales, email him at
<steve@mthamilton.us> or give him a call at 408-592-7580.

This is a follow-up to Bill Yarbrough’s missive last week about the Arizona DMV issuing driver’s licenses to military veterans who can produce a DD-214 as proof of their military service. With the face of the license showing the bearer is a veteran, it will qualify him or her for a discount at Home Depot and other major retailers. You just have to be bold enough to ask. The license also offers official proof of military service for other circumstances. This program is available in all 50 states. The following links apply to California. Use Google to find the procedures in other states.

The link below describes the “three easy steps” necessary to acquire the Veteran designation.

https://www.calvet.ca.gov/Documents/Veteran%20Drivers%20License%20Poster_11x17_300dpi.pdf

The CA DMV link below provides more details on what you need to do to obtain the Veteran designation on your CDL.

SECOND REQUEST FOR INFORMATION


Jim Werkema and I are involved in the dispute with the City over the higher class pay pension issue. We have done a lot of research on the issue, but still need one last bit of information. The City is claiming that HC pay was not treated as pensionable until a new computer programming error occurred on June 27, 1999. Their own Audit shows it as being treated as pensionable in 1998 and three prior past POA presidents recall it as pensionable in the 1970's and 1980's. The City has not responded to our requests to see how far back HC pay was being treated as pensionable and is sticking to the 1999 date.

Currently the City is only taking action on those employees that retired between 2001 and 2012 who had HC pay used in their highest years compensation calculations (61 of us from the Police Department). Most employees work a higher class assignment, have pension contributions legally withheld, but never retired with this extra pay included in their highest years calculations. If you did retire with HC pay included in your pension pay and are not already on their list, then we do NOT want to hear from you.

If you did work in an HC assignment prior to June 1999 (acting Sgt, Lt, Capt, or DC) them we would like you to send us an email with the following information:

• Name and badge number
• Rank worked,
• Approximate dates (year and how long worked - best as you can recall),
• Did you retire? Vest then retire?” Or quit and take your money with you?

These assignments could have been as short as two or four weeks and they still could have been paid at the higher rate and may have had the pension contributions deducted (even if you do not remember getting the short raise). The City cannot find some of the old policy on HC pay, so we really do need retirees who worked HC assignments prior to 1988 to come forward with what information they remember. We will use this information to request the City to conduct a sample audit. If they refuse, we have a plan B.

This HC issue affects all City employees, so if you know some firefighters or other retired people from the Federated system (who worked HC prior to June 1999) we would like to hear from them too. Please contact either one of us if you have any questions.

IS SOCIAL SECURITY A PONZI SCHEME?

 


I had reservations about including this chain email in the Farsider, but I have faith in Carm Grande who sent it in. To personally vet every point made would take far more time that I would be willing to invest, so take it at face value if you are going to read it. Again, if it hadn't come from Carm it would have been sent to the Trash file. The original author is unknown.

A woman died at age 65. She paid into the system for almost 50 years and collected nothing!

Keep in mind all the people that die every year who were paying into the system and got nothing!

Governmental morons mismanaged the money and stole from the system so that it's now going broke.

Beautiful, and they have the audacity to call today's seniors "vultures" in an attempt to cover their ineptitude. Disgraceful.

The real reason for renaming our Social Security payments is so the government can claim that all those social security recipients are receiving "entitlements," thus putting them in the same category as welfare and food stamps.

This is worth the few minutes it takes to read and digest.

By changing the name of SS contributions it gives them a means to refute this program in the future.

It's free money for the government to spend under this guise.
             
The Social Security check is now (or soon will be) referred to as a "Federal Benefit Payment."

I'll be part of the one percent to forward this. I am forwarding it because it touches a nerve in me, and I hope it will in you.
              
Please keep passing it on until everyone in our country has read it.

The government is now referring to our Social Security checks as a "Federal Benefit Payment."

This isn't a benefit. It is our money paid out of our earned income! Not only did we all contribute to Social Security, but our employers did too. It totaled 15% of our income before taxes.

If you averaged $30K per year over your working life, that's close to $180,000 invested in Social Security.

If you calculate the future value of your monthly investment in social security ($375/month, including both you and your employers' contributions) at a meager 1% interest rate compounded monthly, after 40 years of working you'd have more than $1.3+ million dollars saved!

This is your personal investment. Upon retirement, if you took out only 3% per year, you'd receive $39,318 per year, or $3,277 per month.

That's almost three times more than today's average Social Security benefit of $1,230 per month, according to the Social Security Administration. (Google it – it's a fact). And your retirement fund would last more than 33 years (until you're 98 if you retire at age 65)! I can only imagine how much better most average-income people could live in retirement if our government had just invested our money in low-risk interest-earning accounts.

Instead, the folks in Washington pulled off a bigger *Ponzi scheme* than Bernie Madoff ever did. (Lyndon Johnson)

They took our money and used it elsewhere. They forgot (oh yes, they knew) that it was OUR money they were taking. They didn't have a referendum to ask us if we wanted to lend the money to them. And they didn't pay interest on the debt they assumed. And recently they've told us that the money won't support us for very much longer. (Isn't it funny that they NEVER say this about welfare payments?)

But is it our fault they misused our investments? And now, to add insult to injury, they're calling it a "benefit," as if we never worked to earn every penny of it.

Just because they borrowed the money, doesn't mean that our investments were a charity!

Let's take a stand. We have earned our right to Social Security and Medicare. Demand that our legislators bring some sense into our government.

Find a way to keep Social Security and Medicare going for the sake of that 92% of our population who need it.

Then call it what it is: Our Earned Retirement Income. 99% of people won't forward this. Will you?


AND THIS IS SUPPOSED TO REDUCE RACISM? GOOD LUCK

Remove ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ as National Anthem, California NAACP Urges

By Alexei Koseff — Sacramento Bee — Nov. 7, 2017



California NAACP President Alice Huffman wants the National Anthem replaced


When California lawmakers return to the Capitol in January, the state chapter of the NAACP will be seeking their support for a campaign to remove “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem.

The organization last week began circulating among legislative offices two resolutions that passed at its state conference in October: one urging Congress to rescind “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon” as the national anthem, and another in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who launched a protest movement against police brutality among professional athletes by kneeling when “The Star-Spangled Banner” was played before games.

“We owe a lot of it to Kaepernick,” California NAACP President Alice Huffman said. “I think all this controversy about the knee will go away once the song is removed.”

The kneeling protests have drawn attention to an infrequently-sung third verse from “The Star-Spangled Banner,” which includes the passage:

heir blood has wash'd out their foul footstep's pollution.

No refuge could save the hireling and slave

From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave


Some interpretations of the lyrics conclude that they celebrate the deaths of black American slaves who joined British troops during the War of 1812 to gain their freedom. Francis Scott Key, who wrote the lyrics of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” was a slave owner and fierce opponent of abolition who may have sparked the first race riot in Washington, D.C.

Huffman said Congress, which adopted “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem in 1931, should find a replacement that is not “another song that disenfranchises part of the American population.”

She drafted the NAACP’s resolutions this fall after President Donald Trump suggested NFL owners should fire any “son of a bitch” who doesn’t stand for the anthem. The second resolution calls on Congress to censure Trump for his remarks, and asks NFL teams to find a spot for Kaepernick, who some believe was blacklisted over the protests.

“Trump got in the middle of it. He blew it out of proportion,” Huffman said.

The California NAACP is still looking for legislative sponsors for the resolutions. Assemblyman Chris Holden, a Pasadena Democrat who chairs the California Legislative Black Caucus, did not respond to a request to discuss the measures.

But at least one lawmaker is already opposed.

“Our flag and national anthem unite us as Americans,” Assemblyman Travis Allen, a Huntington Beach Republican who is running for governor, said in a statement. “Protesting our flag and national anthem sows division and disrespects the diverse Americans who have proudly fought and died for our country. Real social change can only happen if we work together as Americans first.”

What's next on Huffman's agenda to be removed? Bing Crosby's "White Christmas?"

 


HOW SHE BECAME A LIVE HEROINE INSTEAD OF A DEAD MISSING GIRL


Man Thinks a ‘Deer’ is Moving in His Field — But When He Realizes What It Is, He Dials 911

Oct. 31, 2017



Alexandria Police Dept., Alexandria, MN


A hunter, who was not supposed to be at home in the afternoon, suddenly returned home and spotted something moving in his field, which he thought was an animal. Upon closer examination, he realized it was a girl, and he quickly called the police.


Earl Melchert, a 65-year-old hunter, was supposed to be at work on the afternoon of Sept. 5, but returned home to get a diesel can that he had forgotten to take. When he was leaving for work again, he looked out of his window and saw something moving in his field.


“I thought at first it was a deer,” Melchert told The New York Times.

It turned out that the “deer” was actually 15-year-old Jasmine Block, who went missing from home in Alexandria, Minnesota, on Aug. 8.

“I could make out her face, and I went, ‘Oh my gosh, this is the gal from Alexandria that’s been gone for 29 days.’ It’d been on the news, it’d been online. It went national. It was on posters, in stores, her face, her picture. Right away I recognized her,” Melchert recalled.


The girl was at home when a family acquaintance, Thomas Barker, 32, pretended he needed her help with something. She agreed to help him, but when she reached his house, he tied her up. Police chief Richard Wyffels said that for the next 29 days, Barker and two other men, Joshua Holby, 31, and Steven Powers, 20, sexually and physically assaulted her, and even tried to kill her.


The three rapists moved her to several different locations, and when she was finally left alone for the first time, she escaped and knocked on several homes for help. When there were no responses, she swam across a lake to reach Melchert’s home.


Melchert stayed with the distressed girl while waiting for the police to arrive. Though she was shocked from the ordeal, she managed to point out one car belonging to Powers, which drove by when the police arrived, who had him arrested there and then.

The police department later presented Melchert with a $7,000 reward, but he chose to give it to the girl as he felt the family needed it more than he did, even though he was due to retire.


“It’s the best thing I’ve ever done. The family needs the money. To me, yeah, that’s a lot of money, but they need it way worse than I do,” he said.

“What a retirement present to hand over some money to people that really need it,” he said.

Chief Wyffels later wrote on the police department Facebook page to thank Melchert for his actions. “Thank you, Earl, it is people like you that make this world a better place.”

ANOTHER POLICE STORY THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA DIDN'T FEEL LIKE COVERING

—Media Rule #1: If it doesn’t bleed it doesn’t lead—

Man With Knife Tells Cop 'Shoot Me. Just Do Your Job' - So Cop Does His Job Like A Boss

By Ginny Reed — Blue Lives Matter



Baltimore, MD - A Baltimore police officer saved the life of a man
threatening cops with a knife, after successfully talking him down

 (video below)


"I was hoping that was the outcome it was gonna be. I didn't want it to be a deadly force outcome,” Officer Angel Villaronga said after the incident that was captured on body-cam video. It occurred on September 6 in west Baltimore, according to WBFF .

In the video, a suspect who gave his name as “Phillip” can be seen holding the knife, and telling police to kill him.

"C'mon man shoot me," he said, "Just do your job, man!"

"This is our job,” Officer Villaronga replied.

"A man has got a knife in his hand. He's threatening you, saying he's gonna hurt someone out here, and all of a sudden you all don't do nothing?" the man asked.

Officer Villaronga followed the man to Pennsylvania Avenue, and after about five minutes, was able to talk him into handing over the knife.

"Great work by Officer Villaronga." Jeremy Silbert, Public Information Officer for the Baltimore Police Department, said in a social media post. He also thanked reporter Paul Gessler with FoxBaltimore for telling the story.

Officer Villaronga credited his instincts for knowing what to do, and said that a similar incident happened when he was a kid, when his father became suicidal in New York City.

"At 13 years old, I had the same situation happen with my father, and he was gonna jump off the roof. So, we had NYPD there and they asked me to go up. They don't want to see my mom, because that's gonna make him jump. So, de-escalation, right there,” Office Villaronga said.

His father is still alive today because of the way police handled that situation years ago, he said.

After handing the knife over, the man was transported to a hospital for treatment.

HERE’S A STUNT THAT WENT OVER LIKE A PHART AT A FUNERAL

Marilyn Manson Pretends To Spray Audience With Rifle Only Hours After Texas Massacre

By Andrew Blake — Blue Lives Matter

 

Marilyn Manson used a fake gun to spray imaginary bullets
at the concertgoers in San Bernardino County on Sunday


San Bernardino, CA – On the same day a gunman slaughtered at least 26 people in Texas, rocker Marilyn Manson took out a fake semi-automatic rifle at his concert in California, and pretended to shoot audience members.
(video below)

Manson, 48, performed this stunt at a concert in San Bernardino County on Sunday, almost two years after a terrorist attack left 14 dead in that area. His microphone was attached to the top of the toy rifle.

Performing in a wheelchair after a giant gun prop fell on him and broke his leg last month
(that's karma with a capital K), Manson pointed the fake weapon at the audience, and sprayed them with imaginary bullets.

He was accompanied by the drummer, as the speakers blared out the sound of gunfire.

Manson, dressed as a hospital patient being wheeled around by an orderly, pretended to shoot the audience during the song titled “We Know Where You F**king Live.”

TMZ reported that Manson did alert the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department about the plans for his gun stunt before doing it, so that deputies would not be surprised.

Manson told TMZ the stunt was an “act of theater,” about how easy it is to get semi-automatic weapons.

"My art has always been a reaction to popular culture and my way to make people think about the horrible things that happen in this world," Manson said. "My performance was not meant to be disrespectful or show any insensitivity."

Manson performed the stunt at the Knotfest music festival in San Bernardino, which also featured Rob Zombie. He performed just hours after Devin Kelley went on his shooting rampage in Texas.

On Dec. 2, 2015, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik shot up a government training event in San Bernardino, killing 14 people and injuring 22 others.

Farook and Malik died in a shootout with police as they fled the scene of their attack.

ARE THESE HOLLYWOOD SWELLS SO SCREWED UP IN THE HEAD THAT THEY CAN'T THINK BEFORE THEY TWEET?

Backlash After Chelsea Handler Quickly Blames Republicans for Texas Shooting

Fox News — Nov. 6, 2017

In the first hours after the deadly mass shooting at a Texas church, many details about the massacre and the gunman's identity were still unclear -- but it didn't stop comedian Chelsea Handler from blaming Republicans for the shooting in a tweet that sparked a backlash.



“Innocent people go to church on Sunday to honor their God, and while doing so, get shot an killed. What country? America. Why? Republicans,” the former “Chelsea” host, who has gone after the GOP before on issues such as gun control, wrote.

Her comments swiftly received criticism on Twitter with many chastising the star for politicizing the event while it is ongoing.

“The bodies aren’t even cold yet and you are politicizing them. You really have a dark heart,” one user wrote.

“You’re a hypocrite and part of the problem with your constant tweets of hate that separates the country,” another said.

“Does your career depend on you being a vile, callous person, or is that a personal choice?” a user wrote.

Others decided not to mince words and simply shared their unabashed thoughts with Handler.

“You are a terrible human being,” wrote one.

“Are you really that ignorant?” another said.

As previously reported, Handler chose to end her Netflix talk show recently after just two rocky seasons in an effort to focus on political activism.

“Like so many across the country, the past presidential election and the countless events that have unfolded since have galvanized me. From the national level down to the grassroots, it’s clear our decisions at the ballot box next year will mark a defining moment for our nation,” she wrote in a statement at the time. “For these reasons, I’ve decided not to return for another season of Chelsea, and instead devote as much time as I can to becoming a more knowledgeable and engaged citizen and to focus on projects that have significance to me.”

As Entertainment Weekly notes, Handler was not the only celebrity to respond to the tragedy. However, she was among the first to challenge Republicans politically on the issue.


FROM ONE OF THE FINEST BASEBALL ANNOUNCERS IN THE HISTORY OF THE GAME

Legendary Announcer Vin Scully Says He’ll Never Watch Another NFL Game Due To Kneelers

By Andrew Blake — Blue Lives Matter



Vin Scully says that not watching NFL anymore is 'the only thing I can do in my little way'


Pasadena, California - Hall of Fame baseball announcer Vin Scully told a crowd that he would never watch another NFL game” because of the anti-police protests of the national anthem.
(video below)

"I have only one personal thought, really. And I am so disappointed. And I used to love, during the fall and winter, to watch the NFL on Sunday,” Scully said.

“And it's not that I'm some great patriot. I was in the Navy for a year -- didn't go anywhere, didn't do anything. But I have overwhelming respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war. So the only thing I can do in my little way is not to preach. I will never watch another NFL game."

Scully made his comments at the Pasadena Civic Center at an event called “An Evening With Vin Scully.” He was asked about his thoughts on the NFL protests.

Scully, 89, was the voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers since 1950 until he retired in 2016. He was broadcasting the April 25, 1976 game at Dodger Stadium when two men ran into the outfield from the stands and tried to set fire to an American flag.

While they were trying to light the fire, Dodgers outfielder Rick Monday swooped in from his position and grabbed the American flag before it was set fire.

“I’m not sure what he is doing out there,” Scully said during the broadcast. “It looks like he is going to burn a flag and Rick Monday runs and takes it away from him. And so Monday – I think that guy was going to set fire to the American flag. Can you imagine that?”

The website Deadspin ran Scully’s comments with this headline: "Old Retired White Man Has Opinion You’d Expect On National Anthem Demonstrations”

STORIES OF THE WEEK

The DNA Test

After 10 years, the wife starts to think their kid looks kinda strange, so she decides to have a DNA test performed and finds out that the kid is actually from completely different parents.

Wife: “Honey, I have something very serious to tell you.”

Husband: “What's up?”

Wife: “According to DNA test results, this is not our kid.”

Husband: “Well you don't remember, do you? When we were leaving the hospital, you noticed that our baby had pooped, and you said, ‘Please go change the baby, I'll wait for you here.’ So I went inside, got a clean one and left the dirty one there.”

This is yet another reason why a man should not be given a job for which he isn’t qualified.

Consumer Product Warning

  


My wife Andrea found out that our dog (a Schnauzer) could hardly hear, so she took it to the veterinarian. The vet found that the problem was hair in the dog's ears.

After he cleaned both ears the dog could hear fine. The vet then proceeded to tell Andrea that if she wanted to keep this from happening again, she should go to the pharmacy, pick up some "Nair" hair remover and rub it in the dog's ears once a month.

Andrea went to the pharmacy, found the Nair hair remover and took it to the register. The pharmacist told her, "If you're going to use this under your arms, don't use any deodorant for a few days."

Andrea said, "I'm not using it under my arms."

The pharmacist then said, "If you're using it on your legs, don't use any body lotion for a couple of days."

Andrea replied, "I'm not using it on my legs, either. If you must know, I'm using it on my Schnauzer."

The pharmacist replied, "Well in that case, stay off your bicycle for at least a week.”

 



THE BEST OF THE LATE NITE JOKES

—Funnies for the anti-Trump crowd from the late night show hosts—

Nov. 1 — 7


Nov. 1: People are still talking about Paul Manafort. I guess he used a fake name when he traveled. It got weird when Russia was like, “Wait — your name is McLovin?”

Facebook says it shut down nearly six million accounts in the U.S. last October. Five million were Russian agents, while the rest were people who kept posting “so ready for the weekend.”

There’s a new study that says most Americans think right now is the lowest point in U.S. history. Not because of Trump; because we have seven TV shows about decorating cakes.

I read that Papa John’s stock went down this week due to poor sales. You could tell they were tight on cash when Peyton Manning said, “My check didn’t clear last month.”

The Winter Olympics are just 100 days away! That means you have just 100 days to pretend you understand curling.

It just came out that Lady Gaga got engaged over the summer! The wedding will be pretty low key — just 50 or 60 costume changes.

Nov 2: I want to say congratulations to the Houston Astros, who won the World Series last night! What a great week for our guest tonight, Jose Altuve. He’s the shortest player in Major League Baseball. First, he wins the World Series, then he found out he’s going to Disney World, then he heard he’s tall enough to ride almost all the roller coasters.

I saw that President Trump leaves for a 12-day trip to Asia tomorrow. It got off to a bad start when he asked, “How long is the drive? Are we taking the choo-choo or the beep-beep?”

Finally, I saw that Starbucks just unveiled its holiday cups, which had illustrations that customers can color in themselves. It’s perfect for people who are too busy to make their own coffee at home, yet still have enough time to color in a coffee cup.


Nov. 1: At the White House, first lady Melania Trump came across a trick-or-treater dressed up as her. Melania spent several minutes trying to convince the kid to switch places.

Some videos of racially insensitive Halloween costumes went viral today. Then people realized they were just watching footage of a Washington Redskins game.

In Wisconsin, a child’s trick-or-treat bag was found to contain meth. On the plus side, the kid did manage to hit 19 houses in under two minutes.

Tonight is Game 7 of the World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros. Folks, the stakes are high, whoever wins gets to turn down an invitation to the White House.

It’s come out that this year, indicted Trump adviser Paul Manafort traveled to Mexico using a fake name. Then again, if you worked for Trump and you were in Mexico, would YOU use your real name?

People have recently discovered a property that Paul Manafort listed on Airbnb. Of course, it’s not helping Manafort that it’s a two-bedroom condo in Moscow.

President Trump’s press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that no one in President Trump’s administration supports slavery. To put that in perspective, the last press secretary who had to make that statement worked for Ulysses S. Grant.

Nov. 2: President Trump tweeted that our criminal justice system is a “joke.” He then tweeted, “I mean, how is my entire family not in prison?”

The Republican tax plan came out today and President Trump announced that it will bring trillions of dollars to the U.S. He then said, “Specifically, to three members of my Cabinet.”

President Trump tweeted congratulations to the Houston Astros for winning the World Series. Trump said he’s so happy for the Astros, he’s only going to deport some of the players.

A gambler won $14 million on last night’s World Series game. Here’s what’s suspicious — turns out it was some guy named Yu Darvish.

Amazon has unveiled a new way to view its products in 3-D. Amazon is calling its new invention “a store.”

In an interview, “Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek revealed that he once tripped hard on hash brownies. Apparently, Trebek spent hours saying “What is, ‘my hand’ for 800?”


Nov. 1: On Twitter last night Donald Trump, Jr., used Halloween as an opportunity to take a shot at liberals. He posted a picture of his granddaughter with her Halloween candy that read, “I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It’s never to early to teach her about socialism.” Here’s what I am going to do. I’m going to take that tweet. I will show it to my daughter, because it’s never too early to teach her that “too early” is spelled with two o’s, not one.

Can we not just have one holiday that isn’t about politics? Like Christmas has become about what it says on Starbucks cups. Halloween is now about socialism. I swear to God, if they try to claim that the Easter Bunny was involved in Benghazi, I’m moving back to England.

It was reported this afternoon that Donald Trump is currently fighting with several congressmen over what to call the new Republican tax plan. Apparently, Trump wants to call it, and I promise you this is real, he wants to call it the “Cut Cut Cut Act.” When Trump asked why “Cut, Cut, Cut” wouldn’t work as a name for the tax plan, House Speaker Paul Ryan said, “Because it’s dumb, dumb, dumb.”

Nov. 2: As you all know, it was Game 7 of the World Series last night. It was a great season for the Dodgers. Right here in L.A. But unfortunately, they lost so we have to say congratulations to the Houston Astros on being the new world champions.

We should also say congratulations to all the celebrities in Los Angeles who no longer have to pretend they know anything about baseball.

Now if you are sad the series is over, remember that there are 162 games in a baseball season, so I can only assume baseball starts again on Monday?

The Dodgers lost in seven games, but in L.A. they talk about baseball a little differently. Here they say, they say that the Dodgers were canceled after seven episodes.

After Houston won, Astros shortstop Carlos Correa got down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend live on television. It was a beautiful moment. Although it confused Donald Trump. He was like, “Wait, now athletes are kneeling after the game too? No!” Mike Pence walked out.

A Sports Illustrated cover from three years ago predicted that the Astros would win the 2017 World Series. They predicted it, to which Americans replied, “You knew what was going to happen in 2017 and this is what you give us a heads up on? Thanks for nothing, Sports Illustrated.”

Meanwhile, Republican leaders unveiled the new tax plan. It is over 400 pages long. And experts are still analyzing it. Apparently the plan would cut the number of tax brackets for individuals down to three. It would be 35%, 25%, and 12%. Which coincidentally also matches the trajectory of Trump’s approval ratings. Weird coincidence.

Nov. 6: Trump and his Republican buddies are still trying to do anything. So far, nothing. The latest chop at the t-ball is tax reform. Today, they announced a $1.5 trillion overhaul of the tax code, with major tax cuts to corporations and the rich. This is the biggest story! Or it would be, if we hadn’t just heard that Beyoncé will be starring in the new “Lion King”!

This movie will also feature people who aren’t Beyoncé. I don't know why, but the role of Simba will be played by Donald Glover.

Back to tax reform. The new Republican tax plan will establish three tax brackets, at 12%, 25%, and — who am I kidding? John Oliver is playing Zazu!

Remember former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort? Well, we just found out that Manafort currently has three U.S. passports, and he used a phone and email account registered under a fake name. They haven't released what that fake name is, but apparently Manafort’s internet password was “bond007.”

His catchphrase: “Bond . . . Can someone please post bond? I don’t want to go to jail.”

Nov. 7: It's Election Day around the country and many people are headed to the polls — except for one person, because this morning Donald Trump, Jr., tweeted that Virginians should vote tomorrow. How far did Donald, Jr., set his clock back this weekend? He thinks today is Monday.

But I agree with Donald Jr.'s tweet. Definitely go out and vote for his candidate tomorrow. Do it tomorrow. Get a good night's sleep and do it tomorrow. Or the next day.

Even after people pointed out his error online, he tweeted the mistake a second time. So apparently, the Trump family only knows how to fix elections, not tweets.

A new iPhone glitch is causing the lowercase letter "I" to be replaced by weird symbols. Have you experienced this? It's so odd. Apple addressed the issue with an official statement saying, "What are you gonna do, buy a Samsung?"


Nov. 7: Starting, as we often do, with President Trump, who has been in Asia for four days: Still no mushroom cloud, so that's a positive.

Trump is in South Korea right now. And part of the fun of Donald Trump being in a foreign country is figuring out what he is going to eat in that country. This is what was on the menu tonight: grilled sole fish, shrimp stir fry with noodles and Korean beef served with a 360-year-old soy sauce. If there is anyone who could appreciate a 360-year-old soy sauce, it is a guy who likes Chicken McNuggets.

But he is not there to eat. He is there to neutralize the threat. He said, “Ultimately, it will all work out. It always works out.” Yeah, right. In the movies. Let's face it. Bruce Willis is not going to show up to save us. Best case, Dennis Rodman shows up to save us.

Trump tomorrow makes a speech in South Korea and then travels to China, which will be fun. He'll get to see where all his Trump-brand ties are made.


Nov. 1: According to reports, President Trump wanted to call the upcoming Republican tax bill the “Cut Cut Cut Act.” Which is a terrible name, but it is a lot shorter than calling it the “If I Cut Your Taxes, Will You Forget About My Treason Act.”

Trump wanted to call the upcoming Republican tax bill the “Cut Cut Cut Act.” Terrible name, but I will say every time he’s on TV, I have this fantasy that a director will walk in and go “cut, cut, cut… OK, that’s a wrap on this presidency.”

The Senate heard testimony today from President Trump’s pick to be the new head of NASA, who does not have a significant background in science. Great, that’s what you wanna hear. “That guy’s head of NASA, but he’s no rocket scientist.”

Nov. 2: The Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers last night to win their first World Series title in team history. Sad news for Dodgers fans, some of whom have been following the team since as far back as Game 3.

Security researchers have reportedly discovered that recently indicted former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort used “bond007” as one of his computer passwords. He also signed his checks “From Russia with Love.”

In an interview with The New York Times, President Trump repeated the claim that he is not under investigation. And then he winked so hard he got a black eye.

President Trump also said he enjoys being president and leaves the office late. In fact, he was supposed to only be there till May.

Nov. 6: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe yesterday gifted President Trump with a white version of Trump’s signature “Make America Great Again” hat, reading “Donald & Shinzo Make Alliance Even Greater.” And Melania gave HIM a special hat in return [shows photo of hat reading “Please Grant Me Asylum”].

According to NBC News, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has gathered enough evidence to charge former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his son as part of the Russia investigation. “Well, at least THEY do stuff together,” yelled Eric.

A Twitter customer-support employee briefly shut down President Trump’s profile on Friday on their last day at the company. Sadly, that employee has since died of high-fives.

Nov. 7: After his visit to Japan yesterday, President Trump praised Prime Minister Abe and tweeted: "Massive military & energy orders happening, + + +!" What? It sounds like massive stroke happening, plus, plus, plus. You know you're not supposed to eat the whole puffer fish, right?

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said this weekend that he tries to be bad cop to President Trump's good cop. Wow. Imagine what a bad cop you have to be for Donald Trump to be your good cop.

According to a CNN poll, President Trump's approval rating has reached a new low of 36 percent. He's so unpopular, pretty soon it's just going to be "Fox & Friend."

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross reportedly overstated his wealth by $2 billion to gain a spot on Forbes magazine’s annual list of richest Americans. I'm just glad he finally gave up on sexiest man alive!

His catchphrase: “Bond . . . Can someone please post bond? I don’t want to go to jail.”

Nov. 6: Donald Trump is on a 13-day trip through Asia. “Fox & Friends” has one less viewer.

On his way to Asia, he stopped off in Hawaii. Of course, that’s Obama’s home state. He’s very popular there, so people there didn’t want to say to Trump, “Aloha.” They wanted to say, “Aloha.” Look it up.

Trump then flew to a U.S. airbase outside Tokyo to deliver a strong message to America’s enemies: [plays clip] “No one — no dictator, no regime and no nation — should underestimate, ever, American resolve. Every once in a while in the past, they underestimated us. It was not pleasant for them, was it?” [imitates Trump] “Anyone who messes with us gets what’s coming to them. Just ask Japan. What’s that? Where am I right now? Sorry. Oopsy-daisy.”

After that, it was time for Trump to meet with Japanese Prime Minister — and guy who really thought he’d be talking to Hillary Clinton right now — Shinzo Abe. 

HOW I STAY IN SHAPE...



 

WEEKLY SNOPES URBAN LEGEND UPDATE

Not to sound cynical, but can you see this happening at a high rise hotel in Northern California or the L.A. area? In Orange County perhaps, or over in the Central Valley (wait, scratch that, the tallest building in central California is only five stories tall, and it is full of grain). Back in Kentucky, approximately 1,000 high school choir students from all around the state were captured on video singing the National Anthem in a high-rise hotel. Each night before curfew, they gathered on their balconies to sing the Star-Spangled Banner from the 18-story atrium at Louisville’s downtown Hyatt Regency as part of the Kentucky Music Educators convention. If you can’t muster at least a few goose bumps while listening to THESE kids, pick another country and move. (2:34)

I’m going to run this clip received from Rob Reek against my better judgment. And as soon as the Farsider begins its trip through cyberspace enroute to all of your inboxes, I plan to go into hiding for at least a week, maybe longer. And if Rob is smart, he will join me. I’m counting on one of our liberal readers on the far left to provide us with sanctuary lodging for as long as necessary. With that said, HERE is the video that could cost us dearly. (2:10)

Mike Thompson says THIS is why you should never pre-judge an old guy. (0:46)

Some say the finest rally drivers in the world hail from Finland. We’re not so sure, but we will agree that they are a HARDY bunch. (11:16)







This is an interesting video clip if you are into wildlife. When a man set up his video camera that was aimed at the base of a tree for an entire year and was triggered to record by a motion detector, THIS is what he wound up with. (2:36)




• • • • •

Give the Orchestra of Opera North in London the opportunity to get up to speed with Ravel’s famous "Bolero" and it’s a guaranteed TREAT for the shoppers in this mall. (6:16)







The more clips we receive of the Ukraine from Comrade Kosovilka the more impressed we are with the former satellite of the Soviet Union. It’s unlikely you will see scenes like THIS break out in market squares in the U.S. (2:40)






This week's first Hope For Paws story is about a stray dog that WALKED into a yard and then collapsed. (3:32)

 

Our second Hope for Paws story is about a scared and stranded Pit Bull who was STRUGGLING to survive. (4:29)

Hope for Paws pays the vet bills and covers its expenses through the donations of its supporters. The goal is to rescue strays and unwanted pets (mostly dogs), get them healthy, then find a foster home for them until a forever home can be found. Please consider supporting Hope for Paws with a small monthly recurring donation by clicking HERE.




There are several organizations like Hope for Paws all over the world doing God’s work with animals. This is a moving clip from “Animal Aid” in India about Ruby, a dog that sobbed when she saw rescuers coming to SAVE her. (3:12)











Are we too old to enjoy a 4-minute animated story? Rob Reek thinks not. The question is, will this clip titled “John Lewis Christmas 2017 Leaked” still be available for viewing by the time you are ready to see it, or will it have been pulled from YouTube for a copyright violation? Take a chance and see by clicking HERE. (4:00)

Larry Otter is spot on. If ever there was a commercial for a grocery store chain that deserved to go viral, this is it! There is a brief moment in this clip that caused me to tear up because it made me relive a brief MOMENT in time that I personally experienced back in the ’60s. And I will wager that I’m not the only one. (1:00)

This week’s Steve Hartman’s “On the Road” feature should be worth a half-dozen Kleenex tissues. It’s about a 15-year-old boy that had a dream of owning any car his late father once owned. Didn't matter to him which one. The boy was 9 months old when his father was killed in Iraq. Click HERE to see how the kid’s dream turned out. (3:12)

And here is this week's closer: With 45 days left until Christmas, it is never too early to get that special someone on your gift list a very special present before merchants sell out of the item. And in the case of a loving grandfather, Christmas presents don’t get any more special than this. In fact, we recommend keeping the rest of that box of Kleenex from the item above handy when you see what this grandson GAVE his grandfather last Christmas. We are pretty sure it will bring a tear or two to your eyes. (1:16)
