It was fun to read as well. Your descriptive terms had me in stitches, as usual. Let’s hope you get to write about a conviction in NY later this week.

You know, I was banned years ago from posting at the Washington Post when I graphically stated that I would crap on the steps of the Capital in front of the media when Trump would one day be laid in State. After being banned permanently, I ended my subscription to the paper.

The thought of him lying in state nauseates me.

They can't possibly do that. It would desecrate the capitol. Oh, wait. He already did that.

Believe me, that's exactly what it seemed, that you were having a powerful extra amount of fun. This is a great post. I'll laugh right up to the next time someone doesn't take him to task.

Truly a scene out of a Coen Brothers Movie. I can't stop laughing!

The same to you, Mr Jeff! Goddamn that was funny reading. Except it does make one hurt a little bit that we didn't get to see RFK and Daffy Don debating, like the sea and the wind contending o'er which is the mightiest.

Yes. Perhaps it is on Youtube somewhere by now. However, I am probably going to pass the bloviation. Who knew that Libertarians could have such a sense of humor. The two I have know just ruined the parties I attended when they were there because of friends who felt cool and tolerant to be friends with them. I am not that cool or that tolerant and found myself just being sickened by what they had to say, and given that they were both White men, they were not sickened by me because I am too inconsequential.

That would be interesting

If it was funny for you to write it was hilarious for me to read. I can’t stop laughing - trump trying to further bend his pretzel brain while spewing sh*t and being rewarded by booooos. And your finale “ YOU TOLD ME I WAS GOING TO SPEAK TO A BUNCH OF LIBRARIANS” absolutely describes his total lack of self awareness, whether you meant it as a joke or as something he actually said. Thank you Jeff for adding laughter to my day.

This one takes the cake. I can’t stop watching it. I sent it to a friend in London who refuses to read anything about Trump and she is now laughing.

I have to say, my favorite posts of yours are the ones which are laden with schadenfreude.

It was a fun one to read Jeff. Hope you and Mrs Jeff have a peaceful Memorial Day as we all remember the fallen(you know, the “losers”)in all the many wars our patriots of all races, creeds and genders have fought in.

Almost as much fun as it was to read and watch the video clips! Excellent job, Jeff! This was ‘good to my howdy’!!!

Thank you for the best laugh I've had in a long time.

I thought the GOP was full of nuts. Libertarians have outclassed them.

I mean, like, uh, you know..... HAVE YOU EVER SEEN SUCH PERFECT ACCORDIAN HANDS!!!

Expand full comment

This may be the first time in the history of Libertarians that I've ever agreed with them on anything at all. I don't agree with their reasoning (other than that "dictator" thing), but had I been there, I'd have been booing as well.

Let me get this straight. Trump promises to pardon Ulbricht Ross for the crime of distributing narcotics yet publicly states that under his administration drug dealers will get the death penalty. Damn, I love this shit!

Hi Jeff, I liked the fact MAGA attempted to grab all the good seats up front…then… arguments ensued… Why are MAGAS at this Libertarian convention? To make Donald feel welcomed? You are correct..it was a grade A shit show, better than SNL. The booing, the signs, the arguments among the unwashed masses.. 🤡 well, at least Donald did not appear with indicted gangsters as he did in the Bronx… I guess he’s raising the bar a bit. Have a fun holiday Jeff and fellow travelers.

RUBBER CHICKENS FOR THE WIN!!

Expand full comment

Libertarians are such an interesting people. At face value, a lot of what they say and believe makes sense, but put more than two of them in a room and the whole thing crumbles to nonsense. I wholeheartedly agree with their central belief system of "fuck off," but you can't run a government that way.

Expand full comment
author

most libertarian beliefs are just nonsense. take the idea that there should be no government regulations because it's in business's own self-interest to produce safe products, and so therefore they will produce safe products. no, the whole reason we put regulations in place is because business *wasn't* regulating itself

Expand full comment

Look what happens when Wall Street was “regulating” itself, when police departments “regulate” themselves. Total chaos and the public gets royally screwed.

Boeing regulating itself is another prime candidate for the necessity of regulations.

Right, and by their logic we don’t need law enforcement because, well no laws but also it’s in everyone’s best interest not to crime and steal and such right?

Which group is dumber, though… republicans or libertarians hmmmm I can’t decide. It’s like trying to decide which is more edible, a rotten peach or a rotten pear.

Expand full comment

A libertarian acquaintance once said that government should provide military, courts, and police. All else from private donations or charities. I asked about the Centers for Disease Control. No, charities should fund it. The FDA? No. I asked if he had heard of thalidomide. No. That the FDA prevented its widespread use and horrific consequences in the United States. No, he hadn’t heard of it. People could always sue if they had been harmed.

Young and arrogant, he was. He had been “harmed” because his college roommate got financial aid that he did not get. Therefore government shouldn’t be helping people.

Expand full comment

Dear Libertarians:

Did you hear the one about the Pastry Shop Owner who, prior to creation of the FDA’s oversight, shopped for *inexpensive* yellow coloration for his cake icing, and found some cheap. So he used the bright, yellow colorant in his cake icing, and lots of children really enjoyed eating that attractively yellow, sweet desert…

The shop Proprietor increased his profit nicely by using cheap coloring. It was yellow lead powder. Google lead-poisoning.

Then why have ANY laws if we're all "self-regulating".

Expand full comment

yeah what they say makes sense as long as you treat it in complete isolation and forget everything else about society, humanity, history, and arithmetic.

sure, charity is fine but it's wrong to compel people to be charitable. So people who through no fault of their own need help—the crippled, elderly, infirm, incapable—have to depend on "helping people" to be in fashion. Better to have sidewalks covered with corpses than use Men With Guns to compel people to help.

I hate libertarians.

I’m not sure whether it’s funny, sad or both. But in RFK Jr. the REAL libs finally found a stupider poster child than Rand Paul. And how must that feel to be one-upped by a gnarled garden gnome …

What has me curious. Just exactly what party is RFK Jr.? His ‘campaign’ has reported he’s getting in as many state ballots as possible under whatever ticket he can get qualified for, for that state! How in the hell is this happening?

RFK Jr. doesn’t even know what party he’s actually affiliating himself with. He’s just giving speeches to different factions to get his signatures to get on a state ballot.

He's gonna corner the rubber chicken market for sure.
