For some values of “American”…. and “values”.


Apartheid Tourism! Instead of going to South Africa where the ruling tribe was white, they go to Cuba where the ruling tribe is a murderous, commie dictatorship.

It’s not just the flood of Americans itching to see Cuba “before it changes” that is causing a spike in tourist numbers.

Canadians and Europeans are flocking to the island slave plantation in greater numbers due to the absence of Islamist terrorists in the Castro Kingdom.

In other words, fear of Islamic terrorism in other tourist destinations is enriching King Raul and his cronies.

That’s sorta funny, murderous Islamic terrorists, who cannot be named, are causing tourism to stop going to France and Egypt and head to a murderous, commie, hellhole.

Helpfully illustrated.


Look how happy them darkies are, smiling and singing in the fields in the hotel.


Let’s look at another example of making sure Americans stop being so racist and intolerant!

I wonder if that woman would be so ‘tolerant’ if someone took a broken piece of glass to her hoo-ha.


Let’s interrupt our post for this surprising stating of the blatantly obvious!

Bill Clinton admitted Monday that some Clinton Foundation donors might have given money to the charity in the hopes of getting official favors.

Where he says, “some”, read ‘all’.

Bill Clinton is actually cracking me up. As First Dude he would be very damn entertaining as he really doesn’t give a shit anymore.

Okay, this one is awesome. It’s about GOP establishment pricks, as exemplified by Bushes, voting for Hillary! but that’t not what’s awesome.

What’s awesome is that it’s about a Bush telling a Kennedy he was voting for a Clinton.

Three political dynasties coming together is exactly what America is all about!


The NY Post, along with the best headline writers in the country, are doing the journalism Minitrue, and much of Foxnews (Hey Shep!), is refusing to do.

Here they are noticing the utter dishonesty of our…Obama’s gov’t.

The Federal Reserve had better be careful if it uses the large jump in household income reported last week by the Census Bureau as the deciding factor in whether or not to raise interest rates.

Those Census figures — like a lot of other numbers that come from that government agency — are BS. A joke, at best. Fraud, at worst.

So why are they saying that?

Income increased as much as it did only because Census two years ago altered the way the figure is calculated, including a massive change in how much “income” households derived from making withdrawals from their own retirement accounts. The change boosted estimates.

Eating your seed corn is now classified as “income”.


Not really related, but let’s watch a bucket of scorpions play together!

Over the last several weeks, a number of reports have come out of Syria predicting an imminent merger between Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, the rebranded former Al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra, and other powerful rebel groups….

Rebel groups have been trying for years to overcome their differences and form a united front against the regime of Bashar al-Assad. Most of these attempts adopted a graduate integration strategy, as was the case with the Islamic Front and the Levant Front. Other smaller rebel bands have opted to be absorbed into more powerful groups, such as when Suqour al-Sham members joined Ahrar al-Sham. Jabhat al-Nusra had pursued a similar strategy, hoping to entice Ahrar al-Sham and other groups within Jaysh al-Fatah, an alliance of Islamist militant groups, into a merger. However, Nusra’s constant refusal to split with Al-Qaeda hindered such attempts


So what makes a rebel “moderate”?

The rebranded Jabhat Fatah al-Sham’s decision to publicly sever ties with Al-Qaeda in August and better integrate within Syrian rebel groups gave new impetus to such merger efforts

That’s the coalition of ‘moderate rebels’.


“Autocorrect” for the win!


We should totally replace the Richter Scale.

Helpfully illustrated


I just can’t figure out a title, just like yesterday. I might be the only person who gets a laugh out of my headlines, but I usually do get that laugh.

Oh well, let’s tube.

Will Syria become a battleground between Turkey and the Kurds?

Turkish troops and special forces, backed by allied Syrian rebel groups,launched on August 24 the Euphrates Shield operation to liberate the strategic Syrian city of Jarablus on the border with Turkey from ISIS. Turkey’s president later vowed to press ahead with the military offensive until ISIS and Syrian Kurdish militias no longer posed a security threat to Turkey.

The Kurds tried to make nicey with the Turks, but as the Armenians discovered, the Turks aren’t all that into diversity.

Stories coming out of Syria are all confused as to who’s who. I’ll provide a helpful guide. It stopped being about anybody but jihadis long ago. Except for the murderous Syrian dictator’s forces, they align with whoever they think can help them today.

The only constants are that Iranian-allied terror groups are always for the murderous Syrian dictator and the Saudi-allied terror groups are always against the murderous Syrian dictator. Below that level, it gets murky. If Turkey gets too rambunctious, expect Saudi terror groups to ally with Iranian terror groups (both without involving the murderous dictator) to ally with the Kurds to kick them out. If/when they succeed, they’ll go back to killing each other. It’s a witch’s dog’s breakfast brew of murderous fanatics.


The murderous Syrian dictator does have a plan now that his financiers have a new ally.

The Syrian government has ramped up its efforts to teach the Russian language to secondary school students, nearly a year after Moscow started airstrikes on behalf of the Bashar al-Assad regime.

More of that Obama/Clinton smirt duhplomacy.


So having a black Little Orphan Annie and wymyn Ghostbusters is Awesome!!! but you’d better cast previous non-white roles as their ethnicity!!!!!!

Disney is supposedly making a live-action Mulan (before a live-action Futurama, TANJ)

“to tell Disney that we demand to see them cast an Asian Mulan.” The lead instigator, Michigan children’s librarian Natalie Molnar, vented against the practice of “whitewashing” — that is, employing “white Caucasian actors and actresses in roles originally meant to be characters of color.”

This is pretty funny.

…Korean-American Daniel Dae Kim to play the villainous role of Shan Yu … Japanese-American George Takei to play the Chinese Emperor and another Korean American, Margaret Cho, to play the Chinese matchmaker.

That’s like casting an Italian to play Erik the Red cuz they’re both Europeans. Although I’m pretty sure casting Margaret Cho as anything is a movie-killer.

Let’s go to the Dem Perfidy section of the post. The only hard part about doing that is deciding how many stories to actually post. It’s like a hydra-headed thing, as soon as you post one, two more spring up.

Remember when the GOP was going to PUNISH THE DEMS FOR THEIR TOTALLY ILLEGAL SIT-IN OVER GUNS!!!!!!!!!!!?

So how’s that going?

A memo from minority leader Nancy Pelosi’s office calling for a “gun violence prevention day of action” today includes a long itinerary of scripted actions to be taken by Democrat representatives under orders from the 76-year-old gun control zealot. The actions called for are tightly controlled, right down the the tweets the powerful California Democrat wants the staff of representatives to use on social media on her orders


And since it’s Dems going after guns, you know there’s jaw-dropping dishonesty involved.

272 mass shootings this year. When will @SpeakerRyan give us a vote? #NoFlyNoBuy  #CloseTheLoophole #GunVote
You would think you might have noticed there being more than one Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook or Pulse Night Club every single day this year

You would think that only if you didn’t just accept that Dem gun-grabbers gonna lie like a Clinton caught with his dick in the cookie jar.

Obama campaigning for Hillary! in his own inimitable way.  I love the URL, barack-obama-reagan-fan/

It’s not that long and it’s an interesting look into how the Dems just crap on their constituents even in something as simple as a campaign event and yet, they still don’t complain.

I have to quote this bit

 be told that they could not bring water with them to witness the president speak on behalf of the indisposed Democratic presidential nominee.

Okay, that’s funny. Don’t they know what happens when you dehydrate?


And that, folks, is why we will never see peak irony.


Dem Congresscritter Uses Gov’t To Shut Up Enemies!

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D., R.I.) urged the Department of Justice to prosecute conservative groups that were targeted by the IRS, according to documents obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.

You can file that under News We All Knew.

The reason it may have taken the IRS fourteen months to turn my IRS files over to Judicial Watch is that they state a United States senator from Oregon was involved. At the time both senators from Oregon were Democrats. But only one, Ron Wyden,

It’s what they do, act like fascists as they’re screeching about the latest Emmanuel Goldstein Being Hitler!!!!! Or Worse!!!!!!

Speaking of which, yesterday I made fun of the GOP’s Failure Theater in IMPEACHING KOSKINEN!!!!!!!, little did I know the fish wasn’t just stinky, it wasn’t even fish! It was just a handful of shit covered in nuoc mam.

But GOP leaders are cool to the impeachment push, which stands little chance of succeeding. Some Republicans argue that an impeachment vote two months before elections risked irritating voters,

How out of touch do you have to be to think that attacking the IRS will irritate voters?  No really, that’s like a prosecutor saying he can’t go after organized crime before an election or he’ll irritate voters.


So who else has noticed that all those hearings are OUTRAGE!!!! Theater and that even if they actually try to accomplish something, there’s nobody to enforce their will?

The IT specialist who ran Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server ignored a subpoena to testify before Congress Tuesday, leaving GOP lawmakers fuming and threatening retribution. (hahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahha snort….no, I’m fi….hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahaa thud


What happened? Oh…. Where was I?

Two other witnesses linked to Clinton’s e-mail server invoked their Fifth Amendment rights and repeatedly refused to answer questions.

There will be no repercussions. Oh, the GOP will shout about it, but they won’t actually do anything and if they do try to do anything, the Dept. of “Justice” certainly won’t be any help, the Justice League of America would be more help. They’re at least entertaining.


Yesterday I linked the post comparing this election to Flight 93. Since it was pretty down on both candidates, the push-back was pretty strong and from all over the place.

Some also complained about the aptness of the analogy:

That’s funny, I praised the aptness of the analogy, and I love analogy. I like analogy the way a Clinton loves lying.

This shows the author is really paying attention.

First is the objection to anonymity and specifically to the pseudonym. Anonymity supposedly proves that I am a coward, while the use of “Decius” shows that I am a hypocrite. What am I risking?  I freely admit that, unlike the real Decius, I don’t expect to die. But I do have something to lose, and may well yet lose it.

If you come to the attention of the intertuby left, they’ll do everything they can to destroy your life. Hell, that article is way worse than a stupid shirt.

Read the whole thing, it’s a good read.

Yesterday a guy tried run over 3 Phoenix cops

Similar things are going on in Chicago where Clintonista extraordinaire, Rahm, is busy turning it into what Hillary! wants to do with America.

In other news, an SUV was observed on the southside (006?) driving through the alley behind the station with a M/1 passenger taking video of personal cars parked in the police lot. The SUV’s plate comes back to a rental at one of the airports, so it appears to be another escalation in the directed harassment, intimidation and targeting of officers.

So yesterday they posted this,

An officer’s personal vehicle was torched the other night near 67th and Kostner. Written on the back of the car in marker was “Fuck the Police.”

People are now targeting off-duty cops. The Dems and their BLM front group are doing their best to turn America into some third-world, banana-republic shithole where only the rich and connected are safe in their persons.

Sure, let’s elect Hillary! to save the country!!!!!!!  For criminals!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nough of that. Let’s watch a Science! fight that I didn’t realize was happening.

I was looking for a link about how there’s no brontosaurus anymore when I found a bunch of links with this.

Paleontologists have spent the last century insisting that the species and its name (Latin for “thunder lizard”) are invalid… Nevertheless, from comic books to high literature to the Flintstones, the name brontosaurus has invaded popular culture and refuses to die.
…A team of paleontologists l…., they say they found that Brontosaurus really is in its own group. Its fossils share distinct, incomparable bone features—enough for it to reclaim its iconic genus name.

So the science isn’t settled.

Now we just need to get Pluto back into planethood and at least something would be right with the world.


I hate the Eagles only slightly less than the I hate the Cowboys, but I never realized exactly how correct I was to do so.

I saw a link to a story about how (Screw The)NFL teams got their nicknames, it was all over place so I finally clicked it. They’re mostly uninteresting except for this.

In 1933, Bert Bell and Lud Wray purchased the bankrupt Frankford Yellowjackets. The new owners renamed the team the Eagles in honor of the symbol of the National Recovery Act, which was part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal.

Sonomobatch, so they’re named after one of the most destructive forces not named “Carter” or “Obama” ever inflicted on this nation.


Last and totally, hilariously, not least: It begins!

Now, it is my understanding that is(sic, and not my sic! V) she were to be incapacitated, or if she were too ill to continue, or if, God forbid, she should pass away, then the Democratic National Committee would hold a meeting to fill that vacancy. And I don’t think it would be Joe Biden. I don’t think it would be Tim Kaine. I’m fairly confident she would be replaced by Michelle Obama.

Is that a “Heh” or an “Oh shit?!?!??!”?

It’s both! You don’t get the funny without the endy.

Every once in a while some talking head says that ISIS wants a fight with the West and we shouldn’t give it to them.

As if we had a real choice in the matter.

ISIS’s raison d’être is an apocalyptic confrontation with the non-muslim world. They’re not going to stop terrorizing, beheading, raping, enslaving, and committing genocide until they get their all-out final battle.

No, political talk of trying to see whether sand will glow in the dark probably isn’t a good general election message.  But neither is, “eh, we can handle a few terrorist attacks a year and tolerate an islamo-nazi death cult state in the Middle East.”

Who Cares?

We’re going a $trillion more in debt each year and they’re arguing over whether it’s a little over a trillion or a little under a trillion dollars.

So the question:

Am I the only one who, except for barrycades, is utterly uninterested in what the politicians are doing in relation to the shutdown?


Update, speaking of barrycades.


A Kentucky teen with a deadly illness came to the city to fulfill a lifelong dream: to climb the steps of the Statue of Liberty


You know what happened next. At least they didn’t arrest her.



Only stupid.

Remember when the huddled masses, yearning to be free looked to America? That was the Before, we’re in the Now.

To try to rescue the meeting (with Kerry about Syria V), Robert S. Ford, the American ambassador to Syria and chief envoy to the opposition, was sent to Cairo on Sunday to implore opposition leaders to attend the session in Rome.


We’re reduced to begging jihadis to talk to us.


Next, a little Ukrainian humor.

Eh, I wouldn’t click, they’re speaking whatever it is they speak in Ukraine. Here’s the story , apparently some geeks feel the need to have the gov’t want to kill them so they’re demanding their Internet Party (a political party)

“As a symbol of invincibility and power of Internet Party of Ukraine I decided to intervene personally into a destiny of this institution,” the man said. “I will not let any Rabinovich to make raider attacks on oppositional political parties. I will make every official directly or indirectly involved in this crime to regret about it.


It’s all fun and games until you end up in a dank dungeon, like the former PM.


In more “When a nitwit meets a nitwit going through the rye (whiskey)” news: Hannity V Ellison! No brains enter, one mouth leave!


In related news (no whiskey this time) we see that Obama and Congressional ‘Leaders’ are going to meet to avert the catastrophe that is sequester the day after it goes into effect.

My prediction of no budget, just another continuing spending resolution is looking better and better.


In ignorant fool v ignorant fool news, I’m linking the Grauniad to praise them not point and spit!

They’re making fun of the BBC for some global warmmongering idiocy they put out. Quoth the gruaniad making fun of BBC

Africa’s climate is certainly changing. Some parts of the continent have become 3.5C hotter in the past 20 years.


They call bullshit on that, I’m surprised about this, the Grauniad  makes stuff up all the time, but good for them anyway.


This one should be hilarious, except it’s not. Some guy wrote a poem praising the Tunisians’ revolution, gets a sentence of life in prison the Thug of Qatar . Civil libertarians are OUTRAGED!!!!!! that a place that has no free speech doesn’t have free speech, so they reduced the sentence to 15 years. The head thugs actually thought that would make it all better. See? Funny but not.

Once again, I’m on the Nazi’s side. A retired soldier tried to fly a flag, HOA says no.

Listen, if you want to be free on your own property, do not cede control to an HOA.


Another attempt at a drudgetaposition

Libyan arms seized on way to Gaza.

Libya wants arms embargo lifted so they can import weapons.


Okay, this is fucked up. In the 80s I had a lot of money with Shearson/Lehman brothers. Shortly thereafter, like many others, I didn’t have any money with Shearson/Lehman bro’s. Fuck. So last year I checked on NY State’s “recovered funds page” and found that my 401(k) was still opened. My $2k had skyrocketed over 20 years to $3k! Eh,  I got it when I needed it.

So what’s fucked up about that? This from Australia.

Under recent changes to the law designed to raise $109 million this financial year, deposits can be deemed unclaimed if a transaction has not been made on an account for three years or more, down from seven years previously.

Accountant Bryan Lukav oversaw an account for a client that contained the bond for a commercial property. He was advised to withdraw or deposit at least $1. If he didn’t, he was told the government could seize the account.


Fuck, they just have no rights.

3 chucklers today! I’m all excited.

First, I don’t get this. Russia is upset their hotdogs have horse meat in them. What? You’re afraid there won’t be enough insect and rat parts? Hotdogs, like food only not.


Don’t get me wrong, I like going to Vegas, but when people complain about losing I always say, “That’s why bookies drive Caddies.”

The only way a bookie goes broke is if he gets hit with a huge winner(s) or his protection money is too high. NY OTB went bankrupt for the second reason.

Now, let’s look at lottery, it’s gambling for people who can’t do math. The house takes a ridiculous percentage.

Illinois is bouncing checks to the winners.

Wrap your head around that, you have a 1 in 93 trillion chance of winning and that’s not enough for them to stay solvent.  “Hey, you can’t win if you play” isn’t a good selling model for lottery.

The NY Post gets “cannibal’ , ‘BBQ’ and ‘Beauty’ in the headline! Bravo!

First, a little middle east boom! Israel’s talking about hitting Syria again (as per the AP, I figure their opposition research found out about this). Here’s hoping.

As we’ve seen with the gun control ‘debate’. the American people have spoken while our pols are trying to figure out how much they can get away with. Case in point.

A bipartisan coalition of senators is working on a proposal to strengthen and expand background checks for potential gun purchasers

That’s the famous “Gun Show Loophole” where private individuals can sell their private, legally owned property, to another private individual without the gov’t being involved. And we can’t have that so naturally GOP Senators need to preen for the cameras and if it makes America a little less free? Well, that’s the price they’re willing to make us pay.

A letter from the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Benevolent Association to the feckless assholes running NYS.  ((PDF alert, this link is to Bob Owens and isn’t a PDF). It’s worth a read. They talk about the hurried nature of the passage and how it will make the police less safe as they will now have to confiscate millions of goods that were legally owned last week.

I absolutely love when they note tha semi-auto pistols with one (1) scary feature will require yearly registration.

“While it may come as a surprise to the authors of this legislation, most semi-automatic pistols do in fact come with a pistol grip…”

I’m pretty sure that’s Sheriffese for “You fucking booger-eating moh-ron”

And here’s the part that I was waiting for.

In conclusion, we would be remiss were we not to mention our outrage at the conduct of the Senate Republican Coalition…We have, in the past, always looked to the Republican party to protect the rights of law-abiding citizens…

See, there’s your problem right there. You haven’t been paying attention to the politicians you idiots and assholes have been electing.

In East Coast boom news, Jerry Rivers….Geraldo Rivera is thinking of running for Senate in NJ. Oh man do I hope that happens. No more of this pussy-footing around, let’s get down to the real end of civilization. The suspense isn’t good anymore, it’s just getting tedious. Besides, my stock of fresh water is getting stale.

Bwahahahahahahhahahahahahhahaha. This is hilarious. People get the gov’t they want.

Case in point, DC folks are afraid of freedom. If someone uses something in a scary manner, that thing must be banned!!!

So since some criminals use ski masks for their criminalizing, DC is thinking of banning….ski masks! That’s fucking hilarious.

I’m glad I read this article, I did not know this.

D.C. law already ban individuals — ages 16 and up — from wearing masks in public under certain circumstances, such as while committing a crime or with “the intent to intimidate, threaten, abuse or harass any other person.”

It’s against the law to wear a ski mask while you’re breaking the law. Bwahahahahahhahahahhahahahahahahhahahahahahhahahahahahhahahahahhaha.
How funny, and scarily endy, is it when our ‘leaders’ think making something even more illegaller will stop it.
A truckload of fireworks intended for Lunar New Year celebrations went off Friday in a massive, deadly explosion that destroyed part of an elevated highway in central China,
Why is that good news? Because the fireworks usually blow up in the school where they’re made and kill a bunch of children.


Last, we have someone elucidating the obvious.

And it’s not me!

Nothing special, just an article where someone notices that maybe them wingnuts aren’t crazy talking about librul media.

I wasn’t going to link it, it’s really just rehashing shit I say with less cussing, but he ends with this.


It will be interesting to see how much worse things will get, and what will finally emerge from the wreckage.


Story of our times friend, story of our times.

I’ve been wondering that about a bunch of states and the country as a whole.

I keep hearing that Republicans have more leverage on the debt ceiling debate, so we shouldn’t feel so bad that nothing got accomplished on the initial “fiscal cliff” deal.

How’s that again?

The basic structure of the game is the same, but the Republicans are sitting on a nuclear bomb rather than just a daisy-cutter.  The same media memes will play out… Obama will accuse the Republicans of holding the nation hostage and call for a “balanced” approach that is anything but.

Perhaps Republicans will grow a pair between now and then.  Perhaps the media can be sufficiently prepped by weeks of campaigning to Jedi-mind-trick folks into thinking this is a different game.

But it isn’t a very different game.  It’s almost exactly the same.  You could even argue that it’s worse for Republicans because the consequences of failure are worse.  In the nightmare scenario we have a “hard” sovereign default.  To avoid this, Obama will probably make a power grab, such as invoking the 14th Amendment, or minting new large-denomination platinum coins.

And where are we then?
