This is a conundrum.

On the one hand, I don’t think Aquaman would spear a shark, on the other hand…

with felony molesting a sea turtle, possessing an undersized nurse shark, spearing a nurse shark and for failure to keep fish in whole condition.

I’m going with Aquaman.

I mean really, molesting a sea turtle? That’s just low.

Makes me wonder what he speared the shark with.

ZOFO MOFO!

As Big Fur Hat (who doesn’t really own the world) says, Heart rocks Stairway to Heaven at some prog-fest at the Kennedy Center.

 

Many of the crowd shots are annoying, too many smug lefties, but watching what’s left of Zeppelin rock out is sorta cool. They obviously dig this version.

I’ve been trying to find a post where this fits, but I can’t, so here it is.

That’s one scary looking guy.

Trump will not run as a Republican or an Independent.

As I said in 2012, he’s a huckster and running for president, as Al Sharpton could tell you, is a great way to huck. Also in 2012, I made the same Vearless Vrediction because of his disclosure form.

As for the polls, it’s before the debates, much less the actual voting deal, so who’s leading today is absolutely meaningless for who’s in the lead next month.

I started writing this and then looked for the proof, he has not filed his financial disclosure form and will not, I found this article.

Political insiders see several clues that Trump isn’t in it for the long haul. One sign: He still has only a skeleton staff. Asked to name campaign workers that Trump may have hired, D.C. political operatives were mostly unable to cite any new staffers….

Trump’s press operation seems to still be run largely out of his company. Calls to his press contact go to his real estate holding company’s headquarters. And most of the statements he issued about his controversial remarks about Mexican immigrants have come via the company….

And the part that cinches the deal for me,

Doubters also point to Trump’s lack of financial disclosure. He made a show of reading a report about his net worth during his launch, but detailed asset disclosure is required for official candidates. So far, Trump hasn’t filed that paperwork. Neither have Rick Perry and Bush, who both asked for a 45-day extension. Such requests are not unusual, but longtime Trump-watchers find it hard to believe that the real estate mogul, who often has been accused of overstating his wealth, will be willing to offer an explicit accounting of his assets.

Also as I said in 2012, there’s no way in hell he can do all the financial things he has to do to run,  if he does there’s going to be so much data to be mined by the Dems, Minitrue and the NRO-GOPers that he be boned, and that’s not mentioning people like the SEC and his competitors who might be interested in such a disclosure.

I am in favor of him running, he’s shaking things up and changing the terms of the debate, making the unspeakable (against all the things the NRO-Wing of the GOP are for) very speakable so that when Rick Perry, Ted Cruz and Scott Walker (and his throne of Dem-skulls) can talk about them.

Not sure who I’m fer yet, but I am fer Trump doing what he does best, huckstering and getting his face out there so his next reality show has great ratings.

He’s also showing anybody who gives shit one about what GOP voters want, which lets out the NRO-GOPers.

They just want us to get in line because they’re better and smarter than we. \

Saying that, we all know my early favorite, Clinton/Bush!!!!

Just Some Funny Stuff

Now I have to wonder which of you is named Michael Crawford

A 68-year-old Pennsylvania man was arrested Friday night by undercover sheriff’s deputies after he allegedly flew to Arizona to have sex with a horse.

Michael Crawford bought a round-trip ticket and arrived in Phoenix thinking the person who responded to an online ad…

A Canada Win!, Furred Lives Matter!!!!!

On Thursday morning just after 9am the dead raccoon was first spotted in Toronto and the animal services were notified.

However six hours later when no-one had come to pick him up – a memorial began with a framed photo of a raccoon appearing and a condolence card.

I’m a little jealous right now.

We need a man like John Adams but we have men like John McCain.

At least we still have Sam Adams.

Funny Stuff

Posted: June 18, 2015 by veeshir in Funniest End of Civilization Evah, Kittehs!, PEBKAC

It always makes me laugh how often when nitwits link to articles they seem to think backs up their claims the links do exactly the opposite. ‘

Case in point.

So writes Zoë Coombs Marr, a writer, comedian and “theatre maker,” and a woman of profound humility, in a piece complaining about the “devastating effects” of modest alterations in taxpayer subsidy for Australia’s commercially unviable artist

So who does she link?

At this point, rather bafflingly, Ms Marr links to an article – this one here, by Tim Blair – which is part of a series of pieces by Blair and Andrew Bolt on arts funding cronyism and the ludicrous misspending of public money. A series that actually reveals her claim of funding integrity and aesthetic high-mindedness as – how shall I put this? – less than convincing. Not your mates, indeed. (links in original V)

Heh. When a lefty links Tim Blair to back up her assertions, hilarity is sure to follow.

Love this quote

(David Thompson V) Undaunted, or perhaps oblivious, our unhappy artist continues,

Grant money is pumped back into the economy and employs numerous people.

Yeah, taking money from producers to give to ‘artists’ who need to be paid for their socially relevant ‘art’ pumps all manner of money into the local economy and employs the employees at liquor and pot distributors, which is something I suppose.

Since I’m going camping this weekend, then on to DC for the week and then back to AZ, this post will probably be here for a long time so I figure I’ll leave something visually teh funny up here.

Important, pre-camping Update!!!!!!!!

Well, not that important, but still an update!!!

In November 2011, I wrote, “Wait, that stuff is still going on?

So what was still going on three and a half years ago? Post in bold, links show it’s all still going on.

Syria is still killing people. Actually, that one is more nuanced than the rest, it’s pretty much a dog’s breakfast of everybody killing everybody there. Syrian Military, Isis, Hezbollah,  other

The Gaza death cult is still shooting rockets at Israel. Yup.

Fukushima is still going on. Yup.

Mexican cartels are still killing Intertubers. Yup, though most of those alive are “self-censoring”

Somali pirates are still pirating. The funny part being that after ships avoided the area, it seemed as if piracy went down, when ships went back, it went up. Surprising only fools and the willfully ignorant.

Armenia is still occupying and acting all aggressive on Kazakh Azerbaijani lands, totally without Russia’s help and encouragement (wink wink, nudge, nudge). This is a case of people who’ve hated each other for a long time hatin’ on each other and Russia is still involved.

Terrorists are still operating in the Sinai. Now it’s ISIS of course. Giving Hamas Jihad Envy.

North Korea is still working on nukes and threatening with said nukes. Yup.

Iran is still threatening all and sundry with nukes. Now with more aid from Obama! This poll makes me proud to be an American. Subhed

A new Zogby poll suggests that more and more Americans trust Israel more than Obama to get rid of the Iranian nuclear threat.

Quote

A large plurality of Americans prefer that the Obama administration take a more dovish approach to end the Iranian nuclear threat but at the same time back Israel’s bombing the Islamic Republic

 

EUnuchstan is still boned and still won’t even contemplate actually fixing anything. They keep talking “austerity”, which used to mean, “Living within your means” and now means, “Increasing taxes to pay for what you want.” Good luck with that.

On the lighter side, we might be looking at revolution in China. Yup.

 

Something not new, but the vid of the day

Crazy Russian guy lights himself on fire and jumps from 9 story building.

It lives up to its billing.

This liveleak vid is from the guy’s head-cam.  I cannot figure out how to embed it. I’m computerly challenged.
