Sunday Afternoon Tabs

The number of open tabs is just getting silly.

It’s not just the failed fashion model-turned-Mrs. Trump #3 who hasn’t shown up in support. None of Trump’s five children, or their spouses, have stood by his side in court, either. His two adult sons would rather spend time screening hypothetical future politicalappointments for “loyalty” than bother to show their father any in-person care at court. His eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, is posting photos of her fancy vacations rather than staying in New York with her father. 

Along those lines, ouch!

    Frum not From. Death by spell check. Of course trump deflates, he’s a gas bag.

  2. @Sleeping Dog: Thanks!

    I’m still waiting for one of these “…but Biden would be worse” Republicans to explain to me what, exactly, would be better under Trump. Besides persecuting women, I mean. And protecting grotesque wealth. We already know about those, but I’m pretty sure they won’t admit to them.

    Give me an example of an actual threat to democracy posed by an actual Biden progressive policy. (Progressive policies that Biden would not support don’t count.)

    I have 115 tabs open in Firefox and 54 in Chrome on my PC, and 78 open in Chrome on my smartphone.

    I have never been diagnosed with ADHD, but this is just one of many data points that indicate I probably could be.

    And protecting grotesque wealth.

    I think you answered your own question. If Barr, or anyone like him, says he’ll vote for Biden he loses his cushy seat at the Wingnut Welfare table.

    Nah, Barr’s personal wealth isn’t grotesque. That’s just vanilla greed, in his case — his own gravy train being threatened. It’s the “mustn’t tax the people who would never notice” part that is grotesque. It is so much cheaper for them to buy politicians and media than it would be for them to actually pay their fair share, that they semi-happily do that.

    Are you aware of a feature recently added to Chrome called “profiles?”

    I have (just counted) 42 different chrome icons on my desktop, they can each be independently opened or closed, each has a group of tabs open. Each profile relates to a particular topic or topics.

    The appeal bond story is out of date. Trump’s insurer made some amendments that satisfied the AG nobody could empty the till while the appeal was being heard.

    Melania held an “at home” for about 40 “Log Cabin Republicans” at Mar-a-Lago where she read them a cliche-ridden homily. This was hailed with journalistic excitement as the former first lady “joining the campaign trail”. Meanwhile it was reported that Jill Biden called Trump “a bully”, so the media is covering both sides with scrupulous fairness.

  9. Matt says:

    @Mikey: Well I do have ADHD been diagnosed since I was a child (back then it was just ADD with or without hyperactivity).

    AFter taking that screenshot I’ve managed to knock the amount of tabs open down to 1953. Time to do some more trimming ugh.

    You’re not serious about browsing if your firefox isn’t using +12 GB of ram…
