Wait, nothing’s changed, it’s just that masks are coming off.

I’m on Day something of boycotting Russia Hacked The Election!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 and Trump Lied About Being Wiretapped!!!!!!!!!!! news. I can’t take all the lying lies from fakenewsers.

Speaking of which, Charles Krauthammer has revealed himself, over the Obama years, to be just another member in good standing of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party.

but Krauthammer has a carefully, and well-deserved, reputation for being smart rather than ideologically correct and must know better. Here’s what he said (I transcribed the segment myself from a replay of the program)

“It’s a farce, you know, the idea that everyone in this town – the media – the agencies – the congress – are running around chasing their tails on a story that everyone knows it’s not true, but having to pretend that it might be because he’s the President when we know how it’s going to end.”

It’s been really infuriating watching our fine media and political betters switch 180 degrees from “Look at what those wiretaps proved!!!!!” to “There were no wiretaps!!!!!!!!” and stay there.

 

I’m a little disappointed in this guy.

When Mitch McConnell promised to repeal Obamacare “root and branch,” Meadows (Freedom Caucus leader) actually thought that he meant … well … root and branch.

And when Mr. Meadows read the fifth sentence of Speaker Paul Ryan’s “Better Way to Fix Health Care,” which declared, “Obamacare must be fully repealed so we can start over and take a new approach,” well, he though it meant full repeal, starting over, and a new approach.

Meadows, along with a few of his compatriots, didn’t seem to get the memo: that this was all a joke. Who do they think they are? Amelia Bedelia? Doesn’t he know they only meant to repeal the funding mechanism of Obamacare to make it more insolvent?

 

With just a slightly lighter touch, it would be the type of satire that’s best, the type where you can’t tell if it’s really satire or for reals.

I read almost the same article a couple of times over the weekend and they were serious. Like this one from yesterday about how The Conservatives Made A Mistake!!!!!! for expecting GOP officials to do what they’ve been specifically elected to do.

 

So some people in MD are upset that 17 and 18 year old HS “freshman”/illegal aliens raped a classmate but the people in charge of their children know who’s to blame.

The public outrage toward the illegal alien suspectsaccused of raping a 14-year-old freshman at Rockville High School has been “racist” and “xenophobic,” according to Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Jack Smith.

Our betters are just sick of our shit.

 

CBS has always been full off commie stooges, just like the rest of Minitrue.

CBS proudly claims Julia Sweig as a “CBS News Analyst.”

Back in 2008 the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency’s top Cuba spycatcher  Lieut. Col. Chris Simmons (now retired), named this very Julia Sweig as a full-fledged  “agent of influence” for the Castro regime.

It’s the perfect match, like balls and chains or cats and nine-tails!

 

Okay, this takes all the balls in the world.  China is the world’s biggest thief of intellectual property, nobody else is even close. Which makes this even funnier and chutzpaer.

A ban on selling iPhone 6 and 6 Plus phones in China got overturned after a Chinese court ruled in favor of Apple in a design patent dispute.

Last May, a Beijing patent regulator ordered Apple and a local retailer Zoomflight to stop selling the iPhones after China-based Baili claimed they infringed on the patented design of its 100c smartphone.

The Beijing Intellectual Property Court on Friday overturned the ban, saying the regulator didn’t follow due procedures. It also said there wasn’t sufficient proof to claim the designs infringed on Baili’s patents, noting that people could easily tell the iPhone 6 and the 100C apart.

Get that? Some commie chinese company  stole (I figure V) Apple’s intellectual property and then sued to keep Apple from competing with them.

But the part that this article ignores (probably because the ‘journalist’ is lazy, stupid, biased and ignorant like the rest of the breed), is that this was a shakedown.

Chinese courts aren’t like ours. Sure, they have judges and benches and shit, but their verdicts are what their commie masters tell them. This was just a way to get some money of out of Apple.

And that makes me laugh. I hope they keep doing that shit to Apple until Apple is forced to give up all the $billions they’ve invested in their slave-labor factories. Fuck em.

 

I see this sort of stuff and I just fundamentally disagree.

The film he was referring to was Stanley Kubrick’s touching First World War drama Paths of Glory, in which the master tells the story of a group of French soldiers court-martialed for cowardice during the trench war with the Germans, and their moral commander who decides to defend them in court. Paths of Glory came out in 1957, was released exactly on Christmas, and managed to cover the cost of its production, but not achieve any significant financial gain. This comes to no surprise given the themes it chose to explore and the obstacles it faced in its initial run. The film’s obvious anti-military subtext…

I don’t think it’s ‘anti-military’, it is anti-French way of doing war.

Some general made a plan but was told it wouldn’t work. Since he’s a general and can’t be wrong, they sent in the attack anyway. It got all fucked up and some men didn’t attack when they were supposed to because the rest of the plan fell apart before they were supposed to attack.

Since you can’t make a French general look bad, they told Kirk Douglas (playing a French colonel) to choose a few men and execute them for cowardice in battle.

It’s a perfect slice of why I do not like the European way of war, there are the aristocrats and peasants and never the twain shall meet, except when the aristos tell the proles to go die gloriously. The man who ordered The Charge Of The Light Brigade should have been shot before they were halfway across the valley but that’s not what happened.

But since it shows what happens in real war, it’s anti-war. Like Pork Chop Hill, which I don’t think is anti-war, just very accurate.

 

Okay, I have to wonder if anybody’s using this utterly creepy, unwieldy thing.

This new wearable device is supposed to make meeting people easier. Called Ripple, the device was designed by students at the Royal College of Arts in London.

Using two built-in cameras, the device monitors the environment around you, sending you a signal when someone’s gaze lingers on you. After helping you identify your admirer, Ripple’s tentacles will start moving flirtatiously if it senses there’s a mutual attraction. You can see Ripple in action in the video above.

 

Check it out, it’s freaking bizarre. A girl wears this framework with tentacles hanging off it (is it racist that they use a Japanese-looking girl for their tentacle thing?). If someone looks at her the cameras pick it up and the tentacles slap around the girl to let her know the direction. If she looks they start waving more, if they keep staring at each other, they get more agitated.

It’s the Doc Ock dating device!!!

    … Amelia Bedelia… I love her…

    over 60 times they voted to repeal obamacare … when they knew it wouldn’t get past obama… but spent no time to plan a replacement…

    then they have the power to actually repeal it and can’t get it up…

    so much for the shadenboner…

    Ripple. If you stuff that in your pants, does Medusa’s carpet match her drapes?
    Hairless cultures, I swear. An Ap for managed goosebumps.

    If that does not generate lightning bolts or venom, then that just sucks.

      You sound intrigued.
      When it arrives you’ll have to tell me if you like it.

      If that does not generate lightning bolts or venom, then that just sucks.

      You should apply for their 2.0 design team.

    I agree with your take on Paths of Glory. The same sense of entitlement and the same urge to dodge accountability afflict the “brass” in most organizations to some extent, not just the military (why did the GOP suddenly pop into my mind, I wonder?)

    • Veeshir says:

      Yeah, but those generals didn’t interrupt their soup to tell a colonel to pick out a few guys to execute.
      I’m not saying we’re perfect, but we don’t have the nobility/peasant divide.
      Although we did have something close before WWI. We had an officer class before mass conscription. Henry Fonda played a perfect example in Fort Apache.
      But they didn’t have the European attitude of nobility and the enlisted don’t have the peasant mentality. Who’s my master? The sumbitch ain’t been born yet.
      If Grant had tried that execution shit he’d have faced a mutiny.

      But you’re right, our betters feel they deserve more deference from the proles. And if we have to get blown up by terrorists to make them feel better, we should tug our forelock and say, ‘yussuh’.
