You don't know Dick, do you?



My father's name was Dick. You didn't know Dick. He was a good man...

Amazon has opened a permanent homeless shelter inside one of its office buildings in its downtown Seattle headquarters. The online retailer and nonprofit organization Mary's Place announced Thursday that they have officially opened the Mary's Place Family Center in The Regrade (pictured) - a family shelter that can fit up to 200 people. Although built inside one of Amazon's office buildings, the eight-floor, 63,000-square-foot shelter is being kept separate from Amazon's offices through private entrances and acoustical isolation, according to a joint press release. 
 
Among the shelter's features are a large dining room - big enough for social distancing - an industrial kitchen with commercial cooking equipment, space for Amazon's legal team to provide pro bono support and recreation spaces for children and teens. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos (center) first announced the project was being built in 2017

Things you couldn't understand if you tried:

  •  If a man pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.
  •  Somehow It's un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.
  •  Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegal Mexicans voting in our elections are good.
  •  It was cool for Joe Biden to blackmail the President of Ukraine, but it's an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.
  •  Sexualizing children is bad, but 11-year-old drag queens are good.
  •  Illegals aren't required to show ID, but citizens can't buy cough medicine without it.
  •  Citizens are fined if they don't buy their own health insurance, and then they are forced to buy it for illegals.
  •  People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.
  •  Inflammatory rhetoric is outrageous, but harassing people in restaurants is virtuous.
  •  People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for college degrees.
  •  Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you'd better be able to prove your dogs are vaccinated.
  •  Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any Central-American who jumps the southern fence is welcome.
  •  $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for "free" health care for illegals is not.
  •  If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.
  •  Politicians who say that the President is not above the law put illegal immigrants and themselves above the law.
  •  People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.
  •  Illegals don't pay taxes, but they get tax refunds.
  •  We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, and it seems like a great plan to us.
  •  Voter suppression is bad, but not allowing the President to be on the ballot is good.
  •  Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

See? Toldja ya didn't know Dick.

And there's this from the
 'YOU DON'T KNOW DICK' department:


The news of the death of the leader of the Third Reich, Adolf Hitler, fills the American people with rejoicing, as evidenced by the image of two U.S. sailors, Bob Nethery (left) of Powell, WY. and Bob Wickford of Patterson, CA. celebrate the newspaper headline “Hitler Killed in Battle!” by planting kisses on a woman walking past the newsstand who shows the relevant front page, New York City, Tuesday, 1st of May, 1945.
Hitler was of course not killed during a battle in besieged Berlin, but committed suicide in his bunker in the German capital, along with his partner, Eva Braun, whom he had just married the day before, on April 29, 1945.
...

And this from the'YOU DON'T KNOW DICK' department:


Radio host/DJ Charlamagne condemned Biden's track record with black voters, stating that the former vice president was a 'very intricate' part of the 'systemic racism' that needs to be 'dismantled.' 

'My overall takeaway from the conversation is that I heard him talk about things he did for black people back in the day but what have you done for me lately is my motto,' the radio host explained to CNN on Friday. The radio host slammed Biden's work on the 1994 crime bill, which many have critiqued for its effects on mass incarceration, especially for African Americans (bottom right with then President Bill Clinton after the bills signing).

Ya gotta admit - Joe is the gift that just keeps on giving.

It really is the truth - if we've learned anything from this whole fucked-up virus thing, it's thisWe GOTTA stay healthier than we do now.

The jockstrap (pictured left) was custom-made by an Elvis fan and was worn by the King (pictured right) right up until he died in 1977. Celebrity memorabilia experts Paul Fraser Collectables are selling the jockstrap as part of the Elvis Presley Museum collection. 
It was originally part of singer Jimmy Velvet's collection, Elvis Presley's close friend from the start of his career, who set up a museum to celebrate the icon's life. Paul Fraser Collectibles' Daniel Wade said: 'Extravagant. Absurd. Sexually potent. This rhinestone-studded jockstrap is pure Elvis Presley.

Baseball might eventually return to New York this summer, but if spring training resumes, both the Yankees and Mets are expected to be at their sites in Florida - where I'll get to see them before anyone else up north.

Do you snore? My wife says I do - or did. 
Started taking these about a year ago - one a night before I go to bed - and she hasn't bitched at me at all since.

And then there's this from the
 'YOU DON'T KNOW DICK' department:


I never even gave any thought to the concept that he was gay. 
Just never was an issue one way or another. 
Fuck, I didn't even know or think about whether he was gay or not 
until I saw the movie 'Down and out in Beverly Hills'.
... 


Isn't that a grand gesture from the Gov...

It's just like a bad day at the office.

Depending on where you live, these might be 
necessary for the next coupla months. 
 There's gonna be a whole lotta places you won't be able to go to for a long fuckin' time  without wearing a mask. You can get these masks super fast - they're in stock and ready to ship. Best part? They're washable.




If ya don't use 'em all they're still great 
for around the shop or the job site - and they're washable.
