He is from Vermont.  That is what they wear..  Helped out the lady making the golves to boot.  Good show Bernie.  

Sorry, just no class.

Even Trump wore a (ill fitting) suit, not golf clothes to his inauguration.

I suppose BravoBravo would rather we be lectured on: Morals by serial philanderers and folks with a wide stance in the bathroom Human Biology by creationists who dismiss actual science

The last thing bernie cares about is class.  Granted.  I would have put on a suit and overcoat, but it's fucking Bernie...  He was on his way to drop off the mail and decided to stop by.  Have you not seen his schtick prior to now??  You live in a Cave??

Yeah, but it wasn't BERNIE's inauguration.

However I consider myself fore warned... when you get elected President, I'll remember to buy a new tie and wear my Cor-Fams for your inauguration

Malcolm X was a bit paranoid but he was intelligent and insightful. Definitely worth reading.

And this particular quote is spot-on

Not really.

They were after him.

 

Agree to both because "just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you".

Imagine more people were as paranoid or insightful and acted and spoke out accordingly ...

... well, next time, please?

No I'd turn up in in the black version of my family's tartan kilt, black hose, black jacket, black polished brogues , white shirt, and an appropriate tie.

Hey, you would not believe the amazing clothes I have gotten from thrift stores in rich places.  My best score was a fucking camel-hair sports coat for 5 dollars.  Looked like it had never been worn. As suave as you can get. When I taught high school I wore it during a parent- teacher night. The principal stopped by- she was a fashionista. "I love that sport coat" she said.  "I got it for 5 bucks at a thrift store in the Bay area."     "God damn, you know how to shop!" she cheered.  

@Clove Hitch I think that coat could well have been mine.  I sent you a PM.  Small world!

He says that like he just figured it out.

Actually there are four - Black/White and Rich/Poor.

They get mixed up in various combinations.

While I agree with your assessment of 4, I do believe he knows better than you and I of the difference.  And, has for his entire life.

Judging by their expressions, Obama still thinks he's relevant. The other two not so much.

Obama is processing last night's bean with bacon soup, Bush is trying to remember where the hell he is going, and Bill is talking about poontang.

I have no problems with Bernie's dress. Why does it matter? A million years ago when I was teaching in what was likely the toughest school in Canada we had a moronic principal who insisted we wear ties, which of course would provide a convenient handle in an altercation. It was something about the dignity of the profession and the way we would inspire the kids. We ended up with clip-on ties for safety sake. Not sure how dignified we were. Clothing norms have and are changing as they should be.

Our race committee HQ in KW is Dante’s, where we have our little location overlooking the lagoon pool. They offer low drink prices to people in the biz on weekends, so every stripper in KW will be there today. Look but don’t touch or get within 6 ft. Pre pandemic pics.

Awesome pics. Duval looks pretty much the same as when I was stationed there for 6 months in 1971. Looks like the turtle kralls have gone the way of the dodo though.

My two main hangouts back then were Capt. Tony's (rumored to be where the original Sloppy Joes was) where I was in love from afar with the hot blonde barwench,  and Dos Amigos, across the street from the kralls. Just down the street was a restaurant called the Fleet Reseve where you could get a killer fried grouper sandwich and a draft beer for 75 cents.

Oh yeah, draft beers were 15 and 25 cents at a dive bar called the Raceway out on Stock Island. And once a month El Mocambo's down on Big Coppit Key would have strippers on Saturday nights.

Ooops, spelling error. Turtles kraal. Diana Kralls.

Saw a girl get a quarter into the grouper’s mouth over Capt Tony’s on Friday night. Turtle Kraals was our HQ for many years. It is being remodeled and will be given a new corporate name followed by “At Turtle Kraals”. Sad. Across from that is the Half Shell raw bar. Great spot. Schooner Wharf Bar always has decent live music. Heard an amazing version of the Dead’s “Deal” last night that closed out a great night. Good times.

Ever hear the expression "Dumbing down"?

It's ironic that I, who rarely wears anything but jeans & T-Shirts should be the one who thinks extremely formal occasions demand formal clothing.

Bernie looked more at one with the insurrectionists than with the group on the dais.

Class!? Remember that Trump was supposed to return class to the White House. How'd that work out?

 Bernie has more class in a pimple on his ass than Trump has in his entire family tree.

 Bernie's smart. He dressed for the weather.

Only a matter of time, with the rate that Joe’s undoing all Donnie’s bullshit when is Donny gonna say that’s it, enough is enough!

Surely he still got a base that will go to his rally’s and like getting infected....right?

A curious similarity. I wonder if he's going to start giving out Alternative Medals of Freedom. 

If you pay the right amount....sure.

Just because he’s an ex president doesn’t mean he can’t give out medals right?

Kinda like the Space Force and Star Trek logos.

And, Melania lifting Michelle's speech.

On the DJT logo I see the outline of a Star of David.  Oy vey.  He's a mensch?

I sure hope that the 'office of the former president' sets up a 'merch' tab on its website.  I would love to buy some (made in China) "Trump 2024" hats.  What?  Only $25 each?  I'll take two.  Sure is great to support DJT and a great place to send my money.

In an interstate rest stop kinda way.

Ever meet Ivana in person? The photos don't do her justice, plus she seems genuinely nice... might just be hi-dollar finishing school, I dunno. My wife talked to her more than I did, she was the honorary chairperson of some charity regatta we went to back in the early 1990s. IMHO she could have done better for herself than Donald. But I admit first and brief impressions can be deceiving.

Ol Pappy Sol had the same policy. Only memorial I ever saw him attend was his own and he was in a fucking cardboard box (we don't have Ralphs in FL) about ready for a ride out to the Gulf Stream.

You don't go for the dead person.  You go for the survivors.

My mother's best friend died, and I decided not to fly back home for the funeral, since I didn't know her that well.  It was a decision I regret it to this day.  It was over 30 years ago.

Grief is a personal thing and circumstances matter. One of my sailing mentors and honorary fathers died and I did not go to the memorial service for him that his family put together. I also did not visit him in the embarrassment he clearly felt when he was losing his mind and control of his body in the last two years of his life. Before he got to that point, I answered all his calls and invites to join him to go to jazz shows at his jazz club of which is a member for 40 years in Santa Cruz when he felt up to it and the show was worth it. He could not drive and his bitch wife would not take him not that he really wanted to listen to her bitch about the tight venue and marginal chairs etc. So, in the last couple years he could not drive I would pick him up and we would have dinner at a local restaurant and then walk to the show. He would have a rare beer with dinner and another at the club. He could not walk very well and needed a little guiding. The floor manager of the club always took me aside and gave me praise and encouragement because he knew my friend could no longer navigate the venue without help and he was a loved longtime member and they liked to see him. We always had nice conversations about the jazz and his life and family. His last years at home were not pleasant with his wife and his kids did not interrupt their lives at all to make time to see him. I had my time with him from the time I was 17 until he died when I was 57. Most if it sailing and racing or at jazz shows or when I took his philosophy classes in college. We also played music together. My relationship was with him not with his family. He made it clear that if we could not do the things we did for 40 years that there was no reason for us to spend time. I still have a solid walnut dresser he used for most of his life which gave me, not one of his sons. I think about him every time I use it.
