When is the end of the world?

May 31st!

 

Mega-Earthquake!

You have to love people who look on the bright side, but until then, we’re stuck with now.

 

See, this guy is a pessimist, I can respect that but I have much more faith in our fine media betters.

Media Reach Peak Meltdown Over Comey Memo, Russian Disclosure
Fresh pair of Trump controversies has press demanding impeachment, suggesting people will die

I’d say we ain’t seen nothing yet.

 

How can I say that? According to the NY Times,

The ceremony occurred in the Blue Room of the White House, where many senior law enforcement officials — including the Secret Service director — had gathered. Mr. Comey — who is 6 feet 8 inches tall and was wearing a dark blue suit that daytold Mr. Wittes that he tried to blend in with the blue curtains in the back of the room, in the hopes that Mr. Trump would not spot him and call him out. (emphasis me V, cuz the picture that brings to mind is just so fucking funny.)

That’s right, they’re claiming the FBI director was afraid of Trump and tried to hide from him by wearing camouflage. No, they really wrote that, I’m not making it up. I’m not that creative. I might have said he was hiding but the wearing camouflage is just that extra touch I’m not sure I have.

Seriously, if you’d just click the link you’d be more stupider but at least then you’d know that, unlike the NY Times, I’m telling the truth.

 

WTF is going on at the Free Beacon? Another Concerned Conservative bashing Trump for his twitting at twits.

The man can’t help himself. I’m speaking of course of our president, Donald Trump, whose talents at marketing and publicity brought him wealth and fame and, at the age of 70, the highest political office in the nation…

And this Concerned Conservative is On The Job!

His desire to convey an image of speed and determination has resulted in executive orders stopped by judicial intervention

You mean where they judge-shopped, found some assholes who would go against settled law because they didn’t like Trump? That judicial intervention? Jackass.

a legislature that is quarrelsome and confused.

The only confusion is trying to figure out how to avoid doing what they’ve been specifically elected to do and the only people they’re quarrelsome with are Trump and me. That fucking legislature. Idiot.

His popping off on Twitter creates scandals that should not otherwise exist, and inflames already high tensions in the capital.

He should mean responding to made-up scandals, but he doesn’t. That is what he’s talking about after all even if he doesn’t realize it.

The funniest/stupidest sentence of the link.

His firing of FBI Director James Comey, then his changing explanations of the dismissal, birthed an enemy he does not want to have and alienated a staff whose loyalty he needs.

No, he hasn’t changed his explanations, this idiot is relying on news reporrts of what Trump Said!!!!! instead of looking at what Trump said. On his Twitter Account. Which this idiot is bashing.

Alienated the staff that’s been leaking since before he took office? That staff? The staff this idiot is relying on anonymous quotes for how they feel. That staff.

As for the “birthed an enemy” idiocy, no. Are you not watching the war on him, and by extension us, by everybody? The war that started more than a year ago?

Twitter is his only way to get his message out against the cries of Minitrue, the rest of the Democratic party and Concerned Republicans. Like, apparently, the Free Beacon.

I’m not sure what’s going on, but my optimism that they were not establishment pricks is being sorely tested by a couple articles this week, that one by A Concerned Conservative and the other one where they tried to tie a GOP candidate to Obama over Bush’ forced stimulizing and bailouting.

 

For the counter-point,

The blizzard of lies and distraction blowing through Washington is not just any routine stuffstorm, but a calculated attempt to bring down a president – our president, not the establishment’s president. And more than that, it’s an attempt to ensure that we never again have the ability to disrupt the bipartisan D.C. cabal’s permanent supremacy by inserting a chief executive who refuses to kiss their collective Reid.

Yup. But I do decry Kurt’s vulgarity, nobody should be told to kiss anybody’s ‘Reid’.

That’s just fucking vulgar and low.

I saw that link a few places but I clicked from Doug Ross’ Larwyn’s Lynx, which is a good round-up place.

 

I have in my hand proof, incontrovertible PROOF!!!! that Harvard grades on a curve!!

 Trump’s coverage during his first 100 days set a new standard for negativity. Of news reports with a clear tone, negative reports outpaced positive ones by 80 percent to 20 percent.

 

80%? What news were you watching? Other than Hannity and part of Bret Baier’s show (usually with Catherine Herridge who actually does news but definitely before the panel), I’d bet Fox was more than 80% negative, as for The NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc., they’re ridiculous. Didn’t you watch CNN bash him for eating ice cream?

If they meant as an average only 80% of each and every report was negative I’d be with them. Even MSNBC has to take breaths between screeches.

 

Get Out Your Squeezy Bulb Cuz Repeal And Replace Is On Deck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GOP voters device

Apparently, the House made a mistake, probably caused by all the Turmoil Surrounding Trump, so now they’re going to have to re-vote on Repeal and Replace..the Fix For Obamacare before they can send it to the Senate where they’ll undoubtedly get right on it.  Right. On. It.! This time! This time I am so optimistic they’re going to do it right that I could just shit myself!

Republicans are using the budget “reconciliation” process to pass their health care bill, which allows them to push legislation through the Senate with a simple majority. But that depends on the bill meeting certain requirements — and one of them is that it reduces the deficit by at least $2 billion over the next decade.

The trouble is that Republicans voted on their House bill without waiting for the Congressional Budget Office, the federal agency that evaluates legislation, to finish its projections, which are expected next week.

 

Ooopsie! No, I didn’t shit myself, my fine GOP betters are shitting all over me though! So I have that going for me.

It’s funny how, for me, the whole purpose of the “GOP Win!” category had changed over the last couple years.

Well, not so much funny as infuriatingly infuriating.

 

See, this is what I’m going on about. In talking about the Iranian ‘election’,

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani hopes Friday’s election will put him back in the hot seat for another term, enabling the 68-year-old to pursue engagement with the West.

But the moderate, who struck a deal with world powers to curb Iran’s nuclear programme in return for sanctions relief, faces a strong challenge from hardline judge Ebrahim Raisi.

He believes Rouhani has gone too far and sold out the values of Iran’s Islamic revolution to its enemies.

 

They’re pretending the vote means anything at all. The mad mullahs decide who can run and they tell the ‘winner’ (puppet) how to act. I’m surprised they haven’t run Achmed the Dead Terrorist, maybe he’s on contract with Jeff Dunham so is unavailable.

Watching the media fawn over Achmadinejihad, the new madman they’re running and the Reform Candidate!!!!!, Rouhani, as if they’re not sock-puppets is just stupid. Although… at least Iranian sock-puppets work, so they have that going for them.

Who wins will show us what Iran thinks of the West I’d think. If it’s Rouhani, they’re going to pretend to ‘engage’ the West!!!!, if it’s the other guy, they’re going to get more overtly hard-assed. Should be interesting.

 

I don’t know if it’s new, 8 billion sellers of Che shirts might disagree, but it surely is hypocritical, ignorant and annoying.

 

The more you know about Robert E. Lee the more you respect him.

 

If Trump really wants to get America laughing and our fine social, moral, political and intellectuals frothingly maddened, I have a suggestion.

He could call himself Chaitlyn.

 

 

Above the post, before I post, I shouldn’t have clicked over to the news update!

So, after 8 years of Obama wiping his ass on the laws and the Constitution with no reaction from the fucking “Justice” Dept except to hide his crimes and Hillary’s, we have a Special Prosecutor for the non-crime of Russia helping release emails showing Hillary corruption!

We have to stop taking these assholes seriously. Stop voting for them, stop sending them money, stop reading the news or watching it. Maybe if we ignore them they’ll go away.

Now back to the post I was just about to post!

 

I warned you! I told, don’t encourage them, don’t act as if they’re not totally useless and stupid.

But no. Nobody listened and here we are,

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on May 16 expressed that “drama” in the White House was detracting from the Republican political agenda.

 

I was wondering what excuse they were going to use for failing to do what we elected them to do and I was also wondering how they were going to go after Trump, but here we are, with those assholes blaming their failure theater on Trump.

I think we could do with a little less drama from the White House on a lot of things so we can focus on our agenda, which is deregulation, tax reform, repealing and replacing ObamaCare,” said McConnell.

Yeah, cuz they’ve been working so hard since January! Wait, what have they done? Besides call Trump and asshole and tell me to fuck I mean. I’ll tell you what they’ve done, jack and squat, and jack is full of shit.

And guess who else is in on It’s Trump’s Fault We Are Fucking Useless?

Multiple other members of Congress expressed similar exasperation with recent developments in Washington. Fellow Republican Senator Jeff Flake concurred with McConnell, as did Senator Susan Collins.

The Usual Suspects.

 

Idiot Self Idiofies!

Support for President Trump among Republican lawmakers may be showing signs of strain..

Or should that be, “News From Last Year!”? How can anybody pretend the GOP doesn’t hate Trump even more than they hate their voters?

 

Why is this woman not being called to testify and subject to calls for special prosecutors?

Because we treated Obama and his suckophants as if they were not booger eating morons. So here we are, with one of the people who has most damaged our nation and who will never be called to account calling for an investigation of Trump.

 

While I applaud the noticing of exactly how stupid, damaging and utterly annoying our fine media betters are, I don’t like the headline.

The national media and the Democratic Party have gone stark raving mad over President Trump’s election victory; they refuse to accept it

Yup.

Our media and our Democrats seem to think that with all their hateful, childish behavior, their tantrums (“we won’t vote for an FBI director unless there is a special prosecutor“), they can win back the House and Senate in 2018.   They seem not to realize that they are going to lose more seats in both houses.  Their strategy, these vile tactics, are a suicide pact.  And when the mainstream media and the Democratic Party die by their own hands, only the mind-numbed elites on both coasts and the denizens of the editorial offices of the  NYT,  the WaPo  and the LA Times will be surprised.  No one else will care.  They will have seen it all coming for years.

The suicide pact is really just the results of taking them seriously.

They damage themselves in a tithing sort of thing with a heaping helping of positively feedbacked idiocy. As each moron said something more stupider and was not immediate laughed at, another moron said something even more, more stupider and then even more, more stupiderer until here we are, with the Dems and the media calling for Comey’s head for 6 months only to call him their BFF after they got what they asked for.

And I thought Vice President Joe Biden was going to be the most stupidest thing we’d see this century.

 

The EUnuchstanian EUrozone is in even more economic trouble than us and the IMF knows whose fault it is and what they need to do.

Europe’s richest nation – Germany – is being urged by the International Monetary Fund to spend more to boost its growth potential and that of the entire eurozone.

No really, Germany. The most stable, prosperous country in EUnuchstan and it’s their fault. That sentence basically should read, “Gimme, gimme, gimme.”

In a just released report the IMF revealed its wish list for Berlin which includes investing billions in new and upgraded infrastructure including improved internet access.

In addition it would like the government to spend more on childcare and refugee integration.

Income tax cuts are also suggested, along with employers raising wages to help lift eurozone inflation leading to the European Central Bank being able to wind down its stimulus efforts.

See? I would laugh at the idea that the EUnuchs want to force private employers to raise wages, but here we have people acting as if $15/hr minimum wage is not idiocy.

 

I hate the media. Here we have a story about how Venezuelans are wearing masks to hide their identities from the gov’t during protests and nowhere in that article is any intimation as to exactly why they’re trying to hide their identities.

You see, we’ve allowed idiots to pretend that socialism is a viable economic model instead of pointing and laughing whenever some fool claimed that.

 

As we’ve dealt with the dishonest idiocy of “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” and even pretended the people pushing it deserved anything but to be fired from turning burgers at White Castle, we are ignoring the whole, Don’t Snitch! bullshit.

CHICAGO — The mother of a girl who officials said was gang-raped on Facebook Live is trying to raise money to move her family out of the neighborhood.

The girl, 15, has been living with relatives since the attack in late March, the mother told WGN. Her family remains in North Lawndale, and they say they’ve been harassed and attacked while trying to get enough money to move away.

Earlier this week, the victim’s 12-year-old sister was attacked by a group of girls near their home, their mother said.

Instead of pointing and laughing or pointing out the inherent racism whenever some racist Democrat screeched about The White Man Keeping The Black Man Down we’ve treated them as if they are not racist, horrible, assholes. So here we are, with blacks preying on blacks at unbelievable numbers and yet all the coverage on any problems blames whitey and the cops.

 

People treat Clintons and their istas as if they are not vile, corrupt, dishonest, willfully ignorant assholes, and we deserve everything we get from that.

In Chicago, city officials were busy working on outlawing guns and selling illegal guns. While I applaud the synergy, lock them up.

Emanuel was tight-lipped when asked Monday to define the role he accused Murphy of playing in the email scandal. But he referred obliquely to the broader investigation of alleged gun sales….

  • Rahm claimed Chick-fil-A didn’t reflect Chicago values because their company owners ascribe to the Catholic view of marriage – not that they discriminated (they didn’t), but that they believe in it; Rahm then welcomed Louis Farrakhan, one of the bigger racists in our lifetimes, to the violence plagued streets of the south side;
  • Rahm got outraged when someone with pirated radio uses racial slurs over a police zone, but his people hire back a known drunk who dealt guns over the city’s e-mail system and spread racist e-mails to subordinates and supervisors;

Rahm is one of the most vile Clintonistas. You know, along with all of them.

 

And what’s the most ridiculous of today’s ridiculosities, (besides VP Joe Biden)? That’s right, global warmmongering!

Let’s look at the intersection of vile Clintonistas and global warmmongering, Virginia!

Gov. Terry McAuliffe today directed the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality to begin assembling regulations to reduce carbon emissions from Virginia…

So if you’re gonna go to Virginia, don’t breathe! (yeah, I cut “power plants” but I learned to change quotes to fit my agenda! That’s how professional journalists do it! V)

 

Not really related, just made me laugh.

U.S. warplanes struck Islamic State fighters in March who thought they had reached a safe passage deal with U.S.-backed fighters in Syria, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Approximately 70 ISIS fighters had struck a deal with the Syrian Democratic Forces, the main force relied on by the U.S. to defeat ISIS. The deal entailed dropping weapons and defusing improvised explosive devices in exchange for safe passage outside of the city.

Once they left the city, the U.S. systematically targeted the fighters within their rules of engagement. “I think SDF let them have safe passage out of Tabqa, but once they continued on the battlefield, I don’t know if that’s something we’re required to honor,” Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis told TheWSJ.

Your shoelaces are untied!

Well, semi-related. Trump might actually be noticing reality in Syria. Between this and sending weapons instead of more people he might actually have a grasp on how to handle Syria and, indeed, the whole Middle East.

 

So how ridiculous is today? He thinks this is ‘profound’ and many people do not think this is ridiculous.

Fight the power!

IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOVE THE IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOVE THE BLOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I saw this and thought it was a joke.

But it isn’t.  The Trump 2020 Re-election team is going all out!

That means this joke is no longer nearly as ridiculous as it used to be.

 

 

Now back to our post, already in UPDATE! status.

 

These are updates to other posts, but since nobody reads the posts, why not do it here?

In an IMPORTANT UPDATE TO TRUMP TROLLING THE ENTIRE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, THEIR MEDIA/ENTERTAINMENT ARM AND EVEN THE SOCIALISTS!, we see this from SondraKistan. It’s like Alextopia except with fewer stompy boots.

 

That right there is high-fucking-larious.

Hoist by their own retards.

 

Nother, We Don’t Know What To Think Yet!!!!!!, Update!

The ladies on “The View” clearly didn’t expect their audience to cheer as they announced Wednesday on their show that President Donald Trump had fired FBI Director James Comey.

“I’m sure you all have heard, but FBI Director James Comey’s been fired,” Whoopi Goldberg announced to the audience who could be heard cheering.

I blame the ladies women on the View. They really need to let their audience know the new Reality! before they change the narrative. I mean, it’s just rude to expect them to know it was a Bad Thing Trump Did! after 6 months of Comey being front and center at each and every 2-Minutes-Hate.

Although..in the View’s and Colbert’s defense, their audiences are supposed to know that everything Trump does is bad.

If Trump were to pardon Hillary, give Obama the Presidential Medal of Even More Freedom and ‘xecutively order that Planned Parenthood be a cabinet-level gov’t agency, they should still know to boo him.

It’s just axiomatic.

 

 

Not an update, just common sense.

Researchers at Cornell University have found that erythritol (sugar substitute V) is a biomarker for increasing fat mass and can be metabolized by and produced in the body.

Reminds me of my Dunkin’ Donuts days hearing, “I’ll take a Boston Creme doughnut, a French Crueller, coffee with extra cream and a Sweet and Low.”

Sure they’re eating and drinking like 1500 calories and a 5 day supply of saturated-, unsaturated- and super-saturated-fat but they saved like 15 calories! It’s healthy!

Cornell should probably look at eating habits before they blame the non-fattening sweetener.

 

Nother Not An Update! But Pretty Darn Funny!

Macron: Stop saying my much-older wife is my beard

Can we get a fake-news going about him dating Justin Trudeau?

I know, we’d need the expert fakenewswers at the NY Times and CNN to really do it, but maybe if we got Ace, the Puppy Blender, Blazing Cat Fur and Breitbart we could get it rolling along!

 

When I was young, the NY Post and the Daily News came out twice a day, it’s interesting seeing the Post go back to that sort of deal where the morning paper wasn’t the last word.

Crazious!

Residents at three public housing areas now have a mini-fleet of free Zipcars to make their way around Sacramento.

On Friday, Sacramento launched a pilot program that put eight shared electric Kia Souls at public housing sites. Up to 300 residents can apply for on-demand access to the vehicles, with no charge for maintenance, insurance or juicing up the battery.

I look forward to the surprise and chagrin from the Elite! folks who thought this up when these are destroyed or stolen or stolen and destroyed or stolen and sold.

Because everybody knows that when you get something valuable for free you treat it oh so much better than your own stuff!

 

Craziouser!

North Korea on Friday accused the U.S. and South Korean spy agencies of an unsuccessful assassination attempt on leader Kim Jong Un involving bio-chemical weapons.

I saw everybody ‘reporting’ on this yesterday and the day before.

Why?

No, really. Why give his craziouserness a megaphone? Why not point and laugh instead of treating it as if it’s news?

North Korea frequently lambasts the United States and South Korea, but its accusation Friday was unusual in its detail.

Don’t you mean unusual in its craziouserness?

Now that Obama is gone, there’s a Bash The Forces Of Freedom vacuum in our fine media betters’ lives and they’re Ready! Willing! and differently– Able! to pick up the slack!

Oh, and notice this was supposed to have taken place in 2014. Did anybody ask Obama about this?

In between tongue baths and expensive vacations I mean.

 

Now for Craziouserest!

The proposal says that California-based companies that launch spacecraft will have to pay a tax…  traveled by that spacecraft from California.

This actually would have been “Craziouser” if not for the ellipsized part.

based upon “mileage”

Okay…7 orbits, plus take-off and landing….That’ll be $250-million please.

But I only made 6 orbits!

See? Craziouserest!

What it’s causing:

Baby it’s hot outside. I’m rereading the Lost Fleet series but it’s not fun when it’s 104 even if I am shaded.

 that’s the screen in front of my porch. It lets some light through so I’m not in the shade so much as less light.

At night, with the moths, that screen looks like one of those WWII “enemy identification” charts that coast watchers and AA gunners would use so they’d know who to report on or shoot, respectively.

 I think that’s a German Henschel 123 dive bomber.

Let’s ‘tube!

The other reason I’m here is I was looking for something grammar-related when I read this

Traditional grammar defines the object in a sentence as the entity that is acted upon by the subject.[1] There is thus a primary distinction between subjects and objects that is understood in terms of the action expressed by the verb, e.g. Tom studies grammar – Tom is the subject and grammar is the object. Traditional theories of sentence structure divide the simple sentence into a subject and a predicate,[2] whereby the object is taken to be part of the predicate.[3] Many modern theories of grammar (e.g. dependency grammars), in contrast, take the object to be a verb argument like the subject, the difference between them being mainly just their prominence; the subject is ranked higher than the object and is thus more prominent.[4] (emphasis me V)

and it made me want to write a post about child abuse, it was also a good reason to get into the a/c.

Before I get into why I have a problem (and I’d bet many of you as well, especially if you have children), the point of the whole thing is that our fine intellectual betters make a game of saying the most anti-reasonable things and then the rest act as if it’s PROFOUND!!! and GROUND-BREAKING!!!! when really it’s just unlearning lessons we’ve spent millennia learning.

Let’s have FrnakJ explain it.

The Alpha liberals are the smaller faction of liberals who create the new and idiotic ideas for other liberals to follow. To put that in more practical terms, they pick the cliff that other lemmings jump off of.(1) The Alpha liberal or pinhead, to use the more common term come in the guise of politicians, activist judges, and the college professor. Often, these liberals are at the higher end of the intelligence bell curve. Why, you ask, would smart people come up with the moronic ideas that liberals are so fond of. Well, I’ll explain.

And he does.

That’s been a long-term trend. People have to say ridiculous things so others can nod and say, “How wise! How profound!” when it’s really just going against what we spent millennia learning.

 

I tried teaching math to a lot of different grades, from 6th to 12th, and they could not multiply even 6×4 without their calculators. A few decades ago it became the fashion that learning math is supposed to be fun and memorizing the multiplication wasn’t fun so… adios basics.

I’ve had something on my mind for a long time that greatly bothers me: the multiplication table. This is because I think that education should be fun — full stop. Memorizing the multiplication table is not fun. But more than that, I believe they are the source of most people’s hatred of math. At the same time, I’ve long thought that one should probably know them. And that created a conflict in me because I thought that it was really only possible to know them by memorizing them. But the other day it occurred to be what hogwash that is.

 

Kids are taught the short-cuts you learn after you learn the basics in stead of the basics.

He mentions a bad way to teach the times table as the reason it’s bad

And he used to do this thing where he would go desk by desk asking each student one question, “Seven times eight?” He went sequentially through the table and the desks, so I always calculated which question I would get so I could figure it out and say it the moment he asked me. In that case, there was clearly some mathematics education going on for me, but it had nothing to do with the multiplication table.

Yeah, see. As you noted he wasn’t teaching the times table so much as teaching to pay attention to shortcut learning. If he had randomized it, you would have learned more. But you did learn a bunch as using the multiplication table gets you to remember it.

Strawman alert!

The rationale for knowing your multiplication table is that if you know them, then you can do things like multiply and divide arbitrarily large numbers. But if that’s true, why were we taught the table from 1 through 12?

Yeah, that’s a nitwitish way to put it and a nitwitish question.

It’s so kids can learn the basics so they can more easily learn the advanced. Like multiplying large numbers, or doing calculus. We could not use a calculator in any of my college calculus classes. It led to leaving the answer in terms of the square root of 2 or pi fairly often, but I was learning calculus, not how to use a calculator.

I have never memorized what 6×7 is. Instead, I know that 6×6 is 36, and so I know 6×7 must be 6 more than that, which is 36+6, which is 42.

So he memorized 6×6 then? No! He ‘knows’ it! Totally different.

The point is that they have to know that 6×6=36 before they can get to “36+6”. I do x9 by multiplying by 10 and subtracting the number, but I was trying to teach math to 11th graders who had to sit and think about the answer to 7×10.

Oh, and they also didn’t memorize the addition tables. So they need their phone to add 6 to 36. Cuz people like the guy above had a theory about making math “fun”.

You cannot make everything in life fun. That’s why discipline and respect are so important.

I think math is fun because I like it. YMMV. I liked looking at the relationships on the multiplication table, but I learned that table before I could use relationships like subtracting 8 from 8×10 to figure out 8×9.

 

My grammar, and punctuation, suck; I. know that. In my defense, I bought a lot of commas, a few years ago, and they have an expiration date.

I had nuns making sure I knew English so I was good but if you don’t use something you lose it. I worked in places where good grammar was considered snooty and rude so I lost it. Which: leads us to-

Dependency Grammar!

a class of modern syntactic theories that are all based on the dependency relation (as opposed to the constituency relation) and that can be traced back primarily to the work of Lucien Tesnière. Dependency is the notion that linguistic units, e.g. words, are connected to each other by directed links.

That’s okay so far, I mean, if you’re going to get philosophical, I’ll give you that. To get to the point, they use that idiocy to teach grammar to kids.

Check that.

They use that idiocy to not teach grammar to kids. Just the way they use their idiocies to not teach math to kids.

Different methods of teaching grammar to kids!

One of the older forms of teaching grammar, diagramming sentences, first appeared in the 19th century. This method involves visually mapping the structures of and relationships between different aspects of a sentence. Especially helpful for visual learners, this method disappeared from modern teaching at least 30 years ago

Yeah, the way that we found that works, let’s stop using that!

Students are encouraged to explore language through creative writing and reading, picking up correct grammar usage along the way.

And right there is the difference between riding a tricycle, a bicycle with training wheels, a bicycle, a Honda 125, a Honda 500 and then a Honda Goldwing and “Here’s the key to the Harley, pick up how to ride it along the way”.

The Teaching is hard! Learning is easy! method:

The inductive method of teaching grammar involves presenting several examples that illustrate a specific concept and expecting students to notice how the concept works from these examples.

This guy is doing it right, these people are doing it wrong. Ready? Now do it!

I was actually with this one until the second sentence

The deductive method of teaching grammar is an approach that focuses on instruction before practice. A teacher gives students an in-depth explanation of a grammatical concept before they encounter the same grammatical concept in their own writing.

But then I realized they weren’t teaching anything, merely saying, “Here’s some stuff. Now look at that and tell me what’s wrong. Figure it out yourself. Geez, what do I look like, a teacher?” The tell is the word “concept”, that’s not an example, that’s a description.

And then I read further

This type of teaching, though common, has many people—including teachers—rethinking such methods, as more post-secondary level students are revealing sub-par literacy skills in adulthood. (emphasis me V, cuz it’s anger-inducingly, anger-inducive)

Well that’s surprising! Both that our children isn’t learning and that it’s still common. Educrats have a theory and if you’re kids have to pay, well, that’s the price they’re willing to make us all pay.

Another method of teaching grammar is to incorporate interactivity into lessons. Using games to teach grammar not only engages students but also helps them to remember what they’ve learned.

Once again, it starts pretty well, I’m all into interactivity, but then veers off into idiocy.

If you are not teaching the basics they cannot learn the advanced material.

How can you know to have agreement between object and predicate if you don’t know what an object is? Or a predicate. Or what I mean by “agreement”.

 

A repost

She knows her son is a lesbian trapped in a boy’s body, because that would be Awesome! Baroness Munchausen by proxy!

Shit like that is rewarded instead of having her lose her kids, all visitation rights and any contact with children.

 

This is even more horrific than the above. It’s one of the most horrible things I could imagine.

Janet Reimer was granted her dearest wish: she gave birth to twins…(perfect control group! V)

Then things went horrible.

were sent to the local hospital for a routine circumcision. Unfortunately the doctor in charge of the procedure was using electrical equipment, which malfunctioned several times. On the last trial, Bruce’s entire penis was burnt off. Brian was not operated on. The family were distraught. In the Sixties plastic surgery was not an option: even today it is not recommended that new-borns undergo penis reconstruction operations…

Then, they went more horrible as a horrible person preyed on their tragedy.

saw a television programme that gave them some hope. Dr John Money, a highly renowned sexologist, featured in a debate about sex change operations on transsexuals. He had brought a transsexual with him who was convincingly feminine looking…

Then other lefties prayed on their tragedy.

Nurture not nature determines whether we feel feminine or masculine. Widely cited in many text books, the case was a landmark study – hailed as proof of the overwhelming force of nurture..

Of course, the “Dr” was still preying

He insisted that to fully understand that she was a girl (the poor kid who had his johnson cut off V)…

A reprieve

Finally when she (he you assholes V) was 13, the family told her (him you assholes V) and Brian the truth. Brenda was intensely relieved as she (he you assholes V) had felt she (he you assholes V) was going insane. Almost immediately she (he you assholes V) turned herself (himself, you assholes V) back into a boy and called herself (himself, you assholes V)  David. David received compensation money for the circumcision…(huh V) (no, I should have said, “duh” V)

Before the end of the tragedy

before driving to a supermarket car park on 4 May 2004 and shooting himself in the head. He was 38 years old.

Did our hero learn anything from his experiment?

Dr Money argues that he cannot be held to blame because David did not accept a female gender identity.

And then blames the parents… but not for trusting him, for not trusting him!

He says that the family delayed making a decision until their son was almost two, just before the gender gate was about to shut.

Way to twist the knife dude.

What that BBC article leaves out is pretty horrific.

This allowed Money to experiment on Bruce while using Brian as a control.

I noticed that above, but the BBC did not see fit to mention it.

It’s also hard to find this because most “journalists” do not think it’s relevant apparently.

However, aged 38 he committed suicide, 2 years after his twin also killed himself.

So sad.

It is believed that they both committed suicide because of the methodology used by Money and his impact on their life

Ya think?

So what happened to this savage, barbaric, modern-day Dr. Mengele?

Money was a professor of pediatrics and medical psychology at Johns Hopkins University from 1951 until his death.

This is that extra twist we expect.

He also established the Johns Hopkins Gender Identity Clinic

The twist they use when they’re pulling their bayonet out of your guts. Don’t hold it against him that his theories are idiotic rubbish, he cared! Just because a family (one that we know of V) was destroyed over this, it’s not his fault! If only they had trusted him more!

So no matter the horror, death and despair he left behind him, he was a professor of pediatrics and medical psychology at Johns Hopkins University until he died in 2006. In other words, when the twins whose lives he ruined killed themselves he was a respected professor at John Fucking Hopkins instead of what he deserved.

 

Now we’ve had a couple generations of kids taught by people with theories who used them as lab rats, some places are far worse than others.

Many had parents who cared enough to do something something and some were those who avoided the obstacles to learning and learned by themselves so they did learn, but many did and are not.

The conclusion, let’s let FrnakJ explain again

Now let’s talk about present day.(11) Inevitably, as time as past, the number of finite good ideas out there have been discovered, and thus there is less and less chance that any liberal will have anything worth saying. Ergo, the ideas they do propose now are increasingly idiotic. And, now only using the weapons of derision to stop them, they strive by sealing themselves off from outside input, huddling together in small enclaves protected form the light of reason. They’re like cockroaches, hiding in the walls, and occasionally emerging from the shadows to wreak havoc.

Or they become judges.

Anyway, liberals are out there, and their ideas are more and more chaotic. And, though everyone calls them idiots, instead of taking the logical conclusion and realizing they are idiots, they think only they are right and all others are wrong and must be crushed.

They cannot admit, even..especially to themselves that they are wrong, so that’s why a discredited method of teaching grammar is still “common”, that’s why people are still arguing against memorizing addition and multiplication tables.

Unfortunately, he wrote this before Obama became God-President, before the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party was in full swing and before FrnakJ had kids.

Oh, the horrors they would subject us to if only they had the power.

Lucky for us, though, their main weapon is the whine.

It was so much better when their only power was the whine.

Oh well. At least now they’re sending their smelly foot-soldiers to attack us so we can kick their asses under the perfectly legal right of self-defense.

So don’t forget, let them take the first swing!

And you don’t know where to go to
Why don’t you go where fashion sits


Putin on the titz

 

This post is about Reality!!!!!!!!!!!!, alternatively speaking, but I just love the things that Tsar Putin I does.

He’s left Bond-villain status behind and now he’s like a cross between a tsar and an Austin Powers villain.

 

Via Doug at my favorite ‘Stan (who has the best response I wish I could steal), we see that no troll is too far.

Two conservative journalists have sparked outcry on social media by making what some have interpreted as a white supremacist hand symbol at a recent visit to the White House.

 

Yeah about that.

/pol/ convinces News media – Okay Hand Sign Stands for White Power 👌 (i.redd.it)
submitted 1 day ago by Simi510/pol/ack

I look forward to seeing this become TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!! and OK will be an unword as soon as the 78th edition of the Newspeak dictionary comes out.

I do wonder if I could get a deal started where using both hands and putting the open parts together is Nazi-symbology.

 

 

You really cannot be too ridiculous anymore, somewhere there is someone who will believe it no matter how stupid and nonsensical. It’s how our ELITE!!!! universities are training people, but we’ll have to wait until, or if, Merkel starts going after’refugees’.

 

I also like the “REALITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” of a Symbolic Hunger Strike going on over at Harvard. The food court for the Symbolic Hunger Strike is probably run by the Dumbledore Army and I bet it has vegan ‘ribs’, unlike those GOP meanies who are having a BBQ right next to where they’re Symbolically Hunger Striking (in between meals)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Let’s have a quiz. It’ll be multiple guess.

Who’s more smug?

1) Whole Foods customers

“People say Whole Foods is for pretentious people, and I can see why. It’s too expensive…

It’s like that Jim Gaffigan joke – Whole Foods on Sunday is just a refugee camp for people with too much money.”

B) Samantha Bee and the rest of the Democratic, political/media/entertainment complex.

SAMANTHA BEE ON CNN: THERE IS NO ‘SMUG LIBERAL PROBLEM:’

The puppy blender has this graphic (although I agree with that. Rich, white, lefties are ruining America)

III) Or Phteven The Starbucks Barista

 I bet he practices that look in the mirror.

It’s quartus) All of the above.

But in order I’d say B-III-1, although I could see it being III-B-1.

 

This just shows a fundamental misunderstanding of the purpose of a bureaucracy.

An Internal Revenue Service program designed to prevent fraud costs taxpayers roughly $18.2 million per year, but doesn’t work, according to the taxpayer watchdog group Citizens Against Government Waste.

No, it worked just fine. It created a new level of bureaucracy funded to the tune of $18.2 million and next year, what with the sequester and all, that will be raised to only $36.4 million. Without the sequester is was going to be raised to $54.6 million but the sequester is starving the gov’t.

 

An Open letter to President Trump:

Dear President Trump,

Get. Out. Of. Syria.

Thanks,

Veeshir

The US has reportedly sent troops to the border between Turkey and the autonomous Kurdish region of northern Syria, in an apparent response to a spate of Turkish assaults on Kurdish targets.

P.S. Just send jihadis, AKs and RPGs.

 

If we’re going to get into a war with Russia, I’d rather do it in eastern Europe than the Middle East.

 

I’m not sure what reality this guy infests, but I do wonder what color oranges are there.

Headline

‘THE US HAS LONG SUPPORTED INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE, NOW IT SHOULD BE SUBJECTED TO IT’

Yeah, no. We’ve been telling the International Tribunals so go screw since the 50s. The last time we got involved was to hang some Nazis.

They call him the “dictator hunter”. Reed Brody has been following the bloody trail of infamous political leaders for over 30 years, his latest trophy is Chad’s former president, Hissène Habré. And his next? George W Bush and Henry Kissinger are on his list.

 

Good luck with that.

Athough the way Bush has joined the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party, he might be open to a little international justice.

For Trump’s racism and fascism though.

This is the tell.

“More than putting the criminal in prison, what interests me is to support the victims who fight for justice, to help them regain their dignity,” the American lawyer told Euronews in Geneva, where he participated in a debate entitled “The International Criminal Court under fire”.

They’re running out of money. “Under fire” always, always, always means that their funding is threatened.

This is the funniest part of the bit. They’re talking about The Dictator Hunter remember.

Brody worked with the non-governmental organisation Human Rights Watch (HRW) between 1998 and 2016.

Human Rights Watch. The ones who spend much of their time taking the side of Palestinian terrorists and occasionally issue a pro forma, “China, Cuba and the Norks can be bad” report.

Now that I think about it, they should be up there in the smug quiz. So it’s ‘all of the above and one of the below’ if you’re keeping score at home.

 

 

If this was my class I’d be so proud.

I bet the bureaucrats in the school did not see the humor or inventiveness though. They were probably charged with a felony for blocking a fire exit.

 

Now I can’t wait until I buy a place to live and put a carpet down so I can put this on the floor under the carpet for the next owners to find.

That’s hilarious. (2nd item)

Really, this is ridiculous.

A federal judge on Tuesday blocked any attempt by the Trump administration to withhold funding from “sanctuary cities” that do not cooperate with U.S. immigration authorities, saying the president has no authority to attach new conditions to federal spending…

. And even if he could, the conditions would have to be clearly related to the funds at issue and not coercive…

So that’s the state of American jurisprudence?

The precedent for the federal government holding its highway funding hostage goes back to a 1987 Supreme Court case. The case, South Dakota v. Dole, dealt with the national drinking age,…

Huh. Why they’re not related at all! Why, it looks as if this judge just doesn’t like what the law says so he’s saying it’s something else entirely!

Assholes.

 

Which leads me to an idea. DC wants to be a state, I’m agin that, but states don’t have to be contiguous (I haven’t checked the Constitution, but at this point, what difference does it make?), so we make 3 new states.

DC into MD, NYC, with NY state up to, and including, Dutchess County, and Lawn Guyland and Philly are one state.

Chicago, St. Louis and..I don’t know, maybe Indianapolis are another.

L.A., Sacramento and San Fran are the third.

Sure, lefties would get 6 more senators, but NY, Ill and CA would have seriously good chances of not voting Dem. In NY it wouldn’t make much difference, but eventually some conservatives might break the slimy, corrup, GOP’s stranglehold on state politics. So the Dems would lose 6 senators. That’s a wash.

The House would stay the same just with different names, but Winner Take All primaries would mean the Dems would not get upstate NY and the rest of CA and probably Illinois. MD outside the Chevy Chase area is fairly conservative, not sure how much that would change MD, but it couldn’t hurt.

Seems like a good idea to me.

 

There’s a reason I am pretty much always on Israel’s side.

The 18-year-old assailant from the Nablus area entered Israel with a single-day permit as part of a coexistence group called “Natural Peace Tours,”…

The attack began in a store at the Herods Tel Aviv Hotel where the teenager stabbed a man and a woman, the latter being an employee at the store. The woman’s husband chased the attacker out of the hotel.

The terrorist then stabbed two more pedestrians on his way to the Leonardo Hotel across the road. Among the victims were a man in his 70s and a woman in her 50s.

Israel couldn’t be as bad as their enemies if they tried. And they spend all their time trying to keep from killing the civilians the Palestinians put into the line of fire.

 

Ace links this supposed letter Chelsea Clinton supposedly sent to supposedly Ronnie Raygun and the callous brute never responded.

If she didn’t get a reply, how does she still have the letter? I wrote to Nixon when I was young, I forget why and I don’t feel like looking for it right now, maybe I’ll do it in sometime, but he responded. Rather, someone responded and robo-signed for him.

Clintons gonna lie. It’s what they do.

 

I quoted an article that had a bit about this the other day. They said after a flash-bang went off, the forces of evil chased the forces of good.

Well, this page links the video.

 

 

Wait, not that. That’s a ridiculous charge after a real enemy.

Here the charge against a ridiculous ‘enemy’.

 

Somebody must have sneezed.
