Saturday Morning Confusion #32

Dear Readers:

Image result for donald trump walk of fameJust so there is no confusion about this, there are NO reports of people taking a shit on Donald Trump's walk of fame star on Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles.

In spite of the fact that Bill Maher gave out the exact address on his HBO Real Time program, and urged people not to poop on the plaque (wink, wink) there are no confirmed reports of this actually happening ....., but I wouldn't be surprised if someone pissed on it over the weekend!

MEANWHILE: The “Real Time with Bill Maher” host said on Friday night the GOP would lose the presidential elections under Donald Trump or Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), so he advised Republican supporters to do themselves a favor and switch sides.
“It’s like one of those houses where an old lady lived with 100 cats who peed everywhere,” Maher said of the GOP. “That is your party today — a filthy, pee-stained house full of dead cats.
“Do you really want to spend four years defending every single thing President Trump tweets in the middle of the night, defending every stupid thing he does, when he invades Poland or puts Hulk Hogan on the nickel or retweets our nuclear codes?” 
Then take a punt and vote for Clinton, he said as he lightheartedly reminded Republicans that they “can’t impeach her” if they don’t elect her.

There is a string of bakery shops that is suing a string of doughnut shops down in the States over the name and use of square doughnuts.
Valparaiso-based Family Express filed a complaint for declaratory judgment Thursday in U.S. District Court asking that it be allowed to continue to refer to its four-sided doughnuts as "Square Donuts."
Square doughnutBUT! A bakery in Terre Haute — Square Donuts — has made its own version of these boxlike doughnuts since the 1960s, according to the complaint. According to its website, the company has since expanded with a total of nine bakeries in Terre Haute, Bloomington, Indianapolis and Richmond.
Family Express responded to the letter claiming it didn't think the use was infringing and, after never hearing back from Square Donuts, continued to make and market its own doughnut product. 
So far the lawsuit has done nothing but go round and round in circles, but both parties hope to get things squared away in the near future!

A lot of talking back and forth between Middle-Eastern governments about getting the Taliban and ISIS to sit down at a negotiating table and try to iron out their differences!

ARE THESE PEOPLE NUTS?

Look folks, these are religious fanatics and ideologues who don't want to talk ........, they want to bring everybody around to their way of thinking, and the only thing that is going to stop them is the death of either them, or us!

Let me repeat that just so there is no mistake kids: "They will fight to the death for their beliefs, or kill us!"

Some negotiations can be worked out, but in this case the only option is "they win and we lose" or "we win and they lose!"

There is no win-win in this case!

 After an earlier plan to build an on-demand bus system fell through, residents in Altamonte Springs, just outside of Orlando, have a new public transportation option — Uber.
How is it working?

It's working so far good. Our residents [and] our business owners like the fact that Uber puts transit options in their hands. They don't have to rely on public transit, they don't have to rely on the fixed schedules, they don't have to change their lives to fit the transit model. The transit model in this case can be reshaped by their choice and they love that.
Just so that we're all on the same page folks, your long suffering reporter suggested the same type of thing to London (Ontario) Transit last year and nobody has heard a word from them since.

Basically it would involve two rapid transit bus lines, and then feeder routes along the major arteries ..........., with an "on demand" type system similar to 'Uber' for door-to-door pick-up and delivery.

(Regular fare could be two or three bucks, and door-to-door service would cost five bucks, with no charge return fare -transfer- within two hours!)

SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME ......, AND STILL SEEMS LIKE A GOOD IDEA!
