OUCH!

By Argus Hamilton





http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | The Wall Street Journal reports polls show a wildly fluctuating race with sixty-five days left to go before the election. Friday, the first presidential preference poll came out after Americans had seen both Joe Biden's and Donald Trump's convention speeches. Queen Elizabeth got a huge bounce.

Joe Biden met with reporters before Trump's GOP presidential nomination acceptance speech Thursday to try to reframe the issues in his favor. At one point he was asked by a reporter what he plans to do about Dementia. Joe vowed he will triple their foreign aid and take in all their refugees.

President Trump gave his GOP acceptance speech on the White House lawn that was followed by a spectacular fireworks show, undeterred by DC protests. Trump's crowd cheered the splash of brilliant colors lighting the night sky. They had no idea it was the church going up across the street.

President Trump opened his speech with a tribute to his brother Robert, who'd just died at New York Presbyterian Hospital. Trump visited him and a week later he was dead, leading Democrats to believe the brother had a book coming out. The New York coroner listed the cause of death as My Pillow.

President Trump angered academics Thursday by praising the Western expansion of the U.S. and citing legends Wyatt Earp, Annie Oakley, Lewis and Clark and Buffalo Bill. The conquest of the West ended up giving Native Americans something they'd never had before, namely house odds.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi addressed reporters in Washington Thursday to deliver a sharply critical assessment of President Trump. Nancy suggested Biden refuse to debate Donald Trump saying that Trump will just resort to skullduggery. I suppose she consulted Sherlock Holmes on this?

Hurricane Laura made landfall at Lake Charles at Category Four strength Thursday, blowing gales, hail and rainstorms through the Louisiana Bayou. It was like old times for everybody. The world is not quite right unless half of Louisiana is under water and the other half is under indictment.

The National Basketball Association announced its teams took games off to protest the police shooting in Wisconsin and Major League Baseball teams canceled games, as NFL teams canceled Friday's scheduled summer practices. I guess it was inevitable. The Cancel Culture is canceling itself.

A Black Lives Matter spokesman went on CNN and issued a warning that they are coming to small towns next. I beg these people to reconsider that idea. Don't they know we have people in Eastern Oklahoma that'll sit three days in a tree in the hope they will see something they can shoot?

A Detroit undertaker discovered a twenty-year-old woman alive and breathing in his mortuary twenty minutes after paramedics had declared her dead. Everyone's okay now. Unsurprisingly, during the twenty minutes that she was considered deceased she sent in a mail-in ballot for Joe Biden.

L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti threatened Wednesday to shut off water and power to homes that host parties. Not to be outdone, New York Mayor DeBlasio set up checkpoints to enter Manhattan. You know the world sucks when the best news in the last six months is that at least the explosion wasn't nuclear.

Beirut was rocked by a tremendous explosion Tuesday, sending a mushroom cloud high in the sky. A welder accidentally ignited twenty-seven hundred tons of fertilizer stored next to a depot for defense weapons, accelerating the blast radius. The good news is, we found the cure for Covid-19.

The White House still wasn't sure Wednesday what set off the tremendous explosion in Beirut that caused a mushroom cloud. Its shake of the earth could be felt on Cyprus. George W. Bush said now he knows where Saddam hid all those weapons of mass destruction Daddy kept talking about.

The Pentagon at first assessed the explosion in Beirut as terrorism Tuesday but later backed off as evidence surfaced it was an accident. With emergency aid and new building construction, the explosion may have helped the ailing economy in Beirut. They say prophets are through the roof.

The Los Angeles School District decided that all high school kids in Los Angeles this semester will have classes online. Recently a neighbor told me his sixteen-year-old son asked him what it's like to have sex, so he told his son to go online and Google it. Today, that kid is the pizza delivery guy.

Los Angeles restaurants, bars, comedy clubs, rock and roll joints and all entertainment venues remained shut down on orders from Sacramento. City business is strangling. If you could end the corona virus by getting rid of a governor, which governor would you select, and why Gavin Newsom?

Joe Biden bristled at a question by a black journalist about his cognitive ability on Wednesday and Joe glared at him and asked if he's a cocaine junkie. The campaign quickly explained Biden's comment was certainly NOT racist. It's the standard question Joe asks all his potential running mates.

Joe Biden disclosed Wednesday he's down to two female VP running mates as the convention approaches. Biden wants to keep the names of the remaining hopefuls secrets but Joe told CBS he has narrowed the list to two women. He'll only say their last names are Harris, Warren, and Rice.

New Yorkers were already upset over rising crime rates Monday and then Mayor DeBlasio cut garbage pickups by sixty percent, so New Yorkers are putting their rotting trash on the streets. It illustrates the difference between L.A. and New York. In Los Angeles, we put our rotting trash on TV.

The Portland Oregonian reports the Portland Children's Film Festival dropped Kindergarten Cop starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Film festival organizers don't want kids to see it because they say it romanticizes the police. It could undo two hundred seventy days of public school education.

Psychology Today published a study saying that people naturally like to congregate together in crowds in stadiums, concerts, nightclubs and churches as part of a natural urge to go out and see and be seen. It gave me an idea. Let's all get together for a Covid Going Away Party on November 4
