Again.

I did something I was loathe loath to do, I figured out what it was going to cost me to get a new body for that engine.

I was going to have to spend probably $8-10k more to own two cars, a running El Camino and an albatross around my neck in the guise of a Caballero with an engine in the bed. Or… I could spend yet another couple grand, I’d hope but probably more knowing that fucking thing, and have a running Caballero worth maybe 3 or 4 grand. So for the low cost of $10-$12k on top of the nearly $10k I’ve already spent I’d have a car and an albatross and a lot less money to buy a house next year. I also have to spend another $1,500 to get the seats reupholstered in my Mustang and fix the BBK throttle body that’s 8 or 9 years old and acting up, I was going to have to put off the seats on the Mustang.

So I decided to keep the albatro….Caballero and, try (wish me luck on this shit) to go the classic car plates route so I don’t have to get emissions. I start school next month and it’ll take a year so next year I’ll move somewhere with no emissions.

I went to the DMV, they said I need Collector Car insurance. My insurance company needs pictures so tomorrow my plan is to register the thing and start driving it. Caballero plans tend to not work, so we’ll see.

The guy who was trying to get it emissioned did a bunch of work on it and it’s finally right. He adjusted the carb and timing, which none of the other people seemed to know how to do correctly, which the first asshole made sure was necessary by taking them off a tuned engine for some inexplicable reason and the 4th or 5th guys screwed up the timing trying to make a top-end car (power band at 5,000+ rpm) into an off-the-line car.

They’re the ones who wanted me to change the carb, I have a brand new Holley 750 4bbl that Blueprint said was right, and distributor, I have new HEI distributor again that Blueprint said was right, to make it faster off the line, which every other mechanic said was not going to work. A bigger, differently geared, rear-end and a manual transmission would be the way to do that according to my buddy in VA.

I might still do that, but if I do then I’d have to relive my teen years and take up power-sliding again… I mean, take up drifting.

I will say that in 1982-84 I did far more exciting ‘drifting’ in my 72 Cutlass Supreme with an Olds 350 4bbl. It was my specialty. I used to give rides. Hell, when I was  16-18 and learning that shit in my 72 Dart with the 196 straight six I did 360s far better than that, on snow and ice cuz a 196 can’t make the tires spin on pavement, but still. I used an egg-timer to track my 0-60 on that Dart.

So my plan is to put the Mustang under a cover and drive the Caballero for the summer and then contrariwise when I can put the top down. I am not looking forward to dealing with the Caballero again, but I hope I found a mechanic HeyZeus has not gotten to. The bastid.

 

Let’s tube!

It’s funny how many outlets said that This Poll Showing GOP Voters Are More Motivated Should Scare Democrats!!!!!! and yet, if you read the comments on righty blogs, it’s the establishment pricks in the GOP who should be worried.

Given the GOP’s campaign against ObamaCare and their failure to repeal it, I would find this encouraging if I were a Democrat…

What is already energizing the Republican vote for 2018 is the prospect for ousting more establishment RINOs in the primaries than at any time in history…

This is what morons like Rags, the MFM and liberals in particular cannot fathom…that people are P1SSED at THIS lot of Republican Democrats!

Get these road blocks to progressed removed and people put in place who will carry out what they said they would!…

 

Primary season is going to be even more interesting than when Tea Partiers were trying to get rid of them. Tea Partiers were still polite and respectful. Today, those people are sick and tired of being called vicious names by all our fine betters in DC and minitrue, they’re not going to be so polite. Remember when they primaried Murkowski and the GOP closed ranks to get her elected anyway? I do not see that shit working next year. If they pull that shit expect the Dem to win and the GOP to blame their voters.

 

The difference between what is important to Americans and what the media is trying to get us to care about.

Bloomberg released a poll Monday in which they gauged Americans’ mood six months into the new presidency. While Trump didn’t fare too well, Americans are quite optimistic about the economy in general and their personal financial health. As part of the study, Bloomberg asked respondents what they think is the top issue facing the country. Here are the results:

Not surprisingly, health care tops the list of concerns, followed by jobs and security issues. These findings are pretty typical, though the collapse of Obamacare and the GOP bills to fix it have caused health care to surge higher than usual. But look toward the center of the list. Russia, the issue that has dominated press coverage since the November election, scores a paltry 6 percent on Americans’ top concerns.

Notice where “taxes” is on that graph. They keep pushing that as if it was a big deal in the election but it was the lawlessness of the former admin, Obamacare and illegal immigration that Trump rode to victory. That stuff is not important to our fine media betters though so they ram their priorities down our throats.

 

Coup Coup

Mueller’s Fishing Expedition appears to be rolling right along.

The U.S. special counsel investigating possible ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia in last year’s election is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump’s businesses as well as those of his associates, according to a person familiar with the probe.

They really don’t want to know what happens if they lawlessly ‘fix’ the election we screwed up last year.

Notice that the people who put their money, instead of ours, where their mouths are are worried.

Major U.S. stock indices, which had been trading higher in the morning, fell as traders worried that the probe could derail Trump’s growth agenda.

Yup. Putting Pence and therefore the establishment pricks in the GOP in charge would fuck the whole thing up.

 

Speaking of which,

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum.  They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”  Here’s my answer:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity.  There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.  We tried statesmanship.  Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?  We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?  And the results were always the same.

We finally have someone ready to push back against the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party and the vicious liars in Minitrue and some people seem to think he’s too confrontational. When Mitt fucking Romney is the Next Hitler!!!!!! you know it’s time to start fighting back using their rules.

Something the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party and the vicious liars in Minitrue refuse to allow to even be said

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.  I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.  I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.  Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

Exactly. RTWT, it’s very smart. You can tell cuz it agrees with stuff I’ve written.

 

Lest we forget that lefties aren’t just vicious, they’re fascists who refuse to accept that alternate viewpoints are valid and should not be aired.

SOCIAL MEDIA GIANT FACEBOOK BLOCKED MORE THAN TWO DOZEN CONSERVATIVE CATHOLIC PAGES IN A 24-HOUR PERIOD, SOME WITH MILLIONS OF FOLLOWERS, SAYING ONLY THEY WERE “SUSPECTED OF SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES.”

Faceblock knows which side of the current war they’re on, and it’s the side of fascist censors.

 

Oh yay!

The head of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard warned the U.S. that it better move its forces away from his country if Washington imposes new sanctions on his paramilitary group.

Good luck with that. Somehow I don’t think Mattis uses the adjective “powerful” when discussing the Revolutionary Guard. He probably uses words like “target”, “killing field” and “pig-skin coffins”.

 

Do you think that Akbar Britain noticed that Benny Hill and Monty Python are the most popular things about their nation and they’re trying to out-ridiculous them?

Home Secretary Amber Rudd will today propose to make possessing them illegal everywhere, whether in public or at home.

A long list of dangerous weapons that glamorise violence will also be included in the total ban, putting them on the same legal footing as unlicensed firearms.

They include sword sticks, butterfly knives and blowpipes, as well as a range of martial arts weapons such as deathstars (deathstars? throwing stars you arseholes) and handclaws.

Only people having the weapons for bonified ceremonial or religious reasons will be exempt from the ban.

Ms Rudd is also looking at making it compulsory to buy all knives in person rather than ordering for delivery to keep them out of children’s hands.

A new offence could be created of delivering them to private property.

Or are their oligarchs really that stupid? Blowpipes? Are they going to then outlaw copper pipes when people use that?

Banning normal items is what you do When Something Must Be Done!!!!!!! but you’re out of ideas.

The scariest, most ridiculous thing I’ve read in a long time.

But the police are still powerless to confiscate or arrest suspects who keep the large blades with serrated edges at home.

No really. They’re upset it’s legal to have a bread knife in your house.

Have they outlawed the longbow yet? I know most of their flags are haram, but I’m just wondering how much of their history they’re going to erase.

Up next? Neville Chamberlain’s brilliant foreign policy made it possible for the next Prime Minister, Winston someone or other, to fight WWII.

 

See, now this guy is doing something useful.

Sergei Paylian was only 14 years old when he was horrified by the death of his young, attractive neighbor in Tbilisi, Georgia. As was the local Soviet custom at the time, her open coffin was carried through the street to the sound of music as a shocked teenage Sergei looked on, confronted for the first time with the issue of his own mortality.

It sparked a lifelong obsession with aging – and how to reverse it.

Now, standing in his neat Florida laboratory that looks more like a dentist’s office, the 66-year-old scientist is explaining how a lifetime of research has culminated in a purified extract he calls bioquantines, ‘combinatorial biologics’ incorporating other species such as frogs and, in the future, sharks that he believes is the key to curing diseases – and even death.

When injected into humans, he claims, the bioquantines find their way to diseased or damaged cells and help restore them to a healthier state.

The name is far better than Umbrella Corp

The company Dr Paylian founded, Bioquark, is part of a broader project called ReAnima

A zombie-apocalypse, like an asteroid strike, would be a great sorting device.

When you have no practical skills a fall of civilization pretty much ensures you’re not going to do well. What happens when Domino’s stops delivering and even Amazon Prime can’t get you your quinoa from Whole Foods?

 

Sorta short on content so let’s Pic Post at the end.

Et #2 Brute?

 

 

I don’t really like this one but

 

The rest are keeping their mouths shut so we don’t know the percentages but there are obviously enough of those types to kill lots of people.

Although I’d say the caption should read, ” If you are not a Muslim or a sufficiently similar Muslim…”

 

I don’t look like this, my tits are hairy for instance, but it’s my philosophy.

That’s one thing that many people cannot understand, I treat you the way you treat me. I start nice and polite, but if you call me names I’m all outta fucks so I make sure you know I think you’re a little too dim and full of hate to be taken seriously. It doesn’t accomplish anything but give me a laugh and get fools to leave me alone.

But my favorite part is the end. I can not give a fuck very fucking hard. That was a hard lesson but a useful one.

 

Can I get a Heh?

 

 

Now, while computers and technology hate me (as well as mechanics and GMC’s apparently), that doesn’t mean I’m a luddite but…

Sometimes progress isn’t a good thing.

How awesome would it be if CA was still 3 1/2 months away?

Always a shame. Watching a nervous breakdown, they’re just insane!

 

Let’s start with et tu Ugglay?

On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” Andrea Mitchell, …” stated that former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s accusation that Americans directed and colluded with Russia to “weaponize information” against her is “basically pointing to the Trump campaign,” a charge where Clinton “doesn’t have the evidence,” and is “drawing a conspiracy theory.”

When Hillary’s lost that hag you know it’s time for the old cankles home.

 

7 jaw dropping revelations From Hearings on the Motion to Dismiss the DNC Fraud Lawsuit and you’re not going believe number 8!

It’s mostly a bunch of stupid lawyer tricks.

The Democrats insist that “impartial” cannot be defined, so the DNC’s impartiality clause is akin to a political promise in that it can not be guaranteed….

. The Democrats’ lawyers take the position that while the Democrats are not legally obligated to conduct the primary fairly, they did, in fact, conduct the 2016 primary fairly.

That’s the crap I dealt with at the Patent Office for 12 years. “You can’t define this easily defined word so it can mean anything!” or “We did this, but even if we didn’t we didn’t have to do it!” “Stop touching that in your office…”, check that last one.

Here’s number 8

On June 1, the three separate law firms representing Sen. Bernie Sanders supporters in the class action lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee and former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz for rigging the primaries filed a notice to the United States Federal Court that alleges “unsolicited direct contact by your client Debbie Wasserman Schultz.”…

After the call ended, a simple Google search of the phone number ‘305-936-5724′ shows that it is the phone number for Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ Aventura…

If we had a media instead of a minitrue we might have heard of that in between the screeches on the collapse of the Diet of Worms….Treaty Of Paris.

 

More stuff we might have heard more about if he didn’t have a totally dishonest media.

Judicial Watch today released 2,078 pages of documents revealing more instances of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sending and receiving classified information via an unsecured email server. They also show Clinton’s daughter Chelsea and others involved with the Clinton Foundation receiving special favors from Huma Abedin, the former secretary’s deputy chief of staff.

This next bit is messed up.

The email instructs her aide Oscar Flores to “print for Bill” (presumably Bill Clinton). The email exchange, which involved allegations of the theft of foreign aid by Bangladeshi banker and major Clinton Foundation donor Muhammad Yunus, started with an email from an unidentified person to State Department official Melanne Verveer, who forwarded her exchange on to Hillary Clinton, who then sent it on to Flores, Cooper and Band.

Jebus, she forwarded classified emails more than my step-mother forwards a Maxine comic.

The golden cow cares not for laws, rules or regulations intended for the little people.

 

A digression From the Barrel of a Gun, while Bruce Campbell is still the man, it’s an “N” word not a “C” word.

No Bill, not that “N” word you ignorant fool.

Many didn’t take it that way. “He said ‘n—er’ with a HARD ASS Rrrrrrrrrruh, so that makes this extra offensive,” said The Root writer Monique Judge, who added: “His show needs to be canceled.”

Fire him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Social Justice Demands It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let’s get left eating left! For Social Justice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

More Elites Who Elite From The Elitiest Of Elite Elites! (it don’t get more elite than that!)

Let’s see, idiotic history, stupidly false equivalence, any other logical and factual fallacies in that short tweet from the History Chair of the Elitest Of The Elite Universities!? Surely we need to let these people tell us what to do! They’re all elite and educated and shit. (but mostly shit)

 

If you have to subsidize something for decades, maybe that’s a sign it’s not economically viable?

scrutiny of the billions of dollars in tax subsidies Tesla, SolarCity, and other Musk companies have received over the last decade.

The Heritage Foundation’s Stephen Moore called the “green-energy” tax credits Musk and his companies have benefited from “low-hanging” fruit that could help Republicans offset plans to lower the corporate rate, estimating there could be $150 billion in savings over 10 years by ending them.

All those burning and polluting Tesla batteries are bad for Gaia and living things! Won’t someone please think of the children and ban them? He’s hurting America with every poisoned landfill!

But think about that, $150 billion is $150 million each from 1,000 people. Or…almost $500 from each and every American, from new-borns to almost dead.

No wonder Musk is a billionaire, it’s easy when you get the gov’t the give it to you.

And you people should be embarrassed, we could have started our windmill-powered airplanes and siphoned a few $billion out of Obama and we would have it instead of that anti-American asshole, Musk, but no. You made fun of me. He’s a billionaire doing stuff that’s even more ridiculous, 50 years of subsidies is proof it’s not economically viable, and yet, he’s a billionaire and I’m going to live in a trailer. TANJ.

 

Speaking of hating haters who hate Gaia, California!

When neighbors in the southern San Luis Obispo County town of 17,000 saw bunks being moved into one of the newly constructed houses, anger erupted. Meetings were held, fingers were pointed and death threats were hurled at the Frances.

On April 6, 2016, flames devoured one of the unfinished homes, not yet wired for electricity. Investigators almost immediately concluded it was arson…

Increasingly fond of locally grown produce, Californians are far less enthusiastic about locally housed farmworkers. They have deployed lawsuits, hastily written regulations — and, apparently, the torch — to segregate thousands of seasonal workers to seedy roadside hotels and crowded housing in cities where affordable shelter is already limited.

They want you to grow stuff in their backyard but they don’t actually want to see the people who grow it.

 

Stop Leaking You Assholes.

“The shit is about to go down in Raqqa,” one official said, speaking under condition of anonymity. “I would expect to see the assault begin in the coming days.”

While the Pentagon is not saying publicly when the offensive will kick off…

I get it, for 8 years Obama had you tell our enemies every move we made, but our current POTUS is rooting for America. Stop that shit.

 

This might be a ray of hope in an otherwise gloomy post.

Just over 30 years after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, which saw Belarus lose a quarter of its territory due to nuclear contamination, the former Soviet republic is set to see its first nuclear power station enter operation in one and a half year’s time from now…

In August last year, news emerged that a crane had dropped the 330 tonne heavy reactor from a height of 4 metres during a test lift. If dropping a nuclear reactor was not bad enough in itself, the Belarusian authorities’ attempts to deny or otherwise keep silent on the matter for weeks…

Russian state-owned company Rosatom, the nuclear plant’s main contractor, is complicit in playing the “silent game” by first denying that the accident caused any damage to the reactor shell, only to change its story afterwards by offering to replace the shell. Adding to the concerns was another incident in February 2017, whereby the second reactor hit a power pillar during transport…

A major problem thus far is that the Belarusian authorities limited the scope of the IAEA’s mission only to an assessment of the plant design’s safety.

Lithuania is right across the border, they’re probably not happy about that.

More 80s redux.

Mao Zedong could follow what the “tank man” did. A small, unexceptional figure in slacks and white shirt, carrying what looks to be his shopping, posts himself before an approaching tank, with a line of 17 more tanks behind it. The tank swerves right; he, to block it, moves left. The tank swerves left; he moves right. Then this anonymous bystander clambers up onto the vehicle of war and says something to its driver, which comes down to us as: “Why are you here? My city is in chaos because of you.” One lone Everyman standing up to machinery, to force, to all the massed weight of the People’s Republic–

Sure, celebrate him, but remember that he was killed by murderous commie dictators.

Nobody knows what happened to him even one hour after his moment in the world’s living rooms.

Sure, all the Right People are claiming we don’t know what happened to him but anybody with a brain knows he died a horrible death, tortured to death by angry, murderous, commie dictators.

Well, anybody with a brain who isn’t a sucker of murderous, commie, dictator cock.

 

One thing, you realize what that means? There’s a good chance we’re in the 80s now and not the worst of the 90s!

Oh shit, does that mean Flock of Seagulls is going to have a reunion tour? Eh, you take the good with the Eujizmics.

 

Little bit of historical current events.

Surprise, surprise, another inmate released from the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba has been arrested for reengaging in terrorism…

Lahmar was on Saudi Arabia’s payroll as an employee of the Saudi High Commission for Relief (SHCR), a non-governmental organization (NGO)…

The Dutch prosecution service is investigating statements on Islam by far-right politician Geert Wilders following an official request from Austria,

It took a few centuries by I guess the Moslems finally won the Siege of Vienna.

I can’t wait to hear about how Amsterdam doesn’t have a red-light district anymore because of hating haters on the Far Right!!!!!!!!!

 

Trum-Trum-Trumpius!

The Roman Emperor Claudius, who reigned from 41 to 54 AD, was never supposed to be emperor. He came to office at age 50, an old man in Roman times. Claudius succeeded the charismatic, youthful heartthrob Caligula..

Trump followed Little Liar not Little Boots, but still.

… new Caesars—who claimed direct lineage from the “divine” Augustus—were usually rubber-stamped by the toadyish Senate. However, the outsider Claudius (who had no political training and was prevented by his uncle Tiberius from entering the cursus honorum), was brought into power by the Roman Praetorian Guard, who wanted a change from the status quo apparat of the Augustan dynasty.

I’ve never been called a Praetorian before, but I like it.

The court biographer Suetonius wrote that Claudius “was now careful and shrewd, sometimes hasty and inconsiderate, occasionally silly and like a crazy man.”…

Roman intellectuals hated Claudius, who hit back blow-for-blow at them for their slights and snark, and showed no mercy to plotters and conspiracists.

He’s just not of the right sort. New money don’t you know.

RTWT, he really lays it out well.

If Melania or Ivanka go all Messalina, I want vids.

 

Related to the Stupid Lawyer Tricks above,

There is no constitutional right to marry a laptop, the Utah Attorney General’s Office said in a new court filing…

Chris Sevier sued the state of Utah, arguing that if same-sex marriage is legal he should be allowed to marry his computer. He recently amended his lawsuit to include John Gunter, Jr., and Whitney Kohl, who are arguing for the right to enter into a polygamous marriage.

I’m in favor of that, I’m sick of living in sin with my computer.

“These claims are untenable as a matter of law because Plaintiffs lack standing to bring these claims and the right to marry has not been indefinitely expanded, nor should it be. Simply put, marrying a laptop computer or multiple partners are not rights protected by the Constitution.”

Yeah about that. Why is it marrying multiple partners against the Constitution? I’m pretty sure it’s allowed in the Commerce clause and I’m absolutely sure it’s in the pursuit of happiness clause.

 

Life imitates Futurama (again!)

As part of an exhibition to mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, a church in Wittenberg, Germany, has unveiled what it calls a “robot priest,” a machine that emits lights from its outstretched hands and dispenses blessings in five languages. The robot, called BlessU-2…

Important Super-Villain Update!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The incident started at about 11 a.m., when thousands of honeybees suddenly descended upon a yellow ServiceMaster work van that was parked between Fifth and Madison avenues, witnesses said…

I think I can say without hyperbole that WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Important Graphic Update!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Old and busted

New Hotness!

 

 

Important, Above The Post, Finally!, Update With Newly Changed Link!

Trump fires FBI Director Comey.

Liberal press interprets this as an attempt to derail Comey’s investigation of Trump’s alleged Russia connections in 3…2…1…

Bingo!

President Donald Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey Tuesday, ousting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the midst of an investigation by the agency into whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia’s election meddling [emphasis mine – Paco].

At least 4 months late.

Now back to our post in its entirety!

 

Nick Kristof, who if he didn’t exist I’m not sure even FrnakJ could invent, mansplains abortion to backward Xtian women

If that seems incongruous, let’s remember that conservative Christianity’s ferocious opposition to abortion is relatively new in historical terms.

The Bible does not explicitly discuss abortion, and there’s no evidence that Christians traditionally believed that life begins at conception. St. Thomas Aquinas, the father of much of Catholic theology, believed that abortion was murder only after God imbued fetuses with a soul, at 40 days or more after conception.

So…. historically recent? In about 30 seconds of searching, we find this scholarly dude writing about how there was significant discussion in early Christianity about its sinfullness.

Huh. Why it’s as if Nick Kristof is an idiot?!?! Possibly. But he’s more of a fakenewser who spreads disinformation and misinformation to provide affirmation to NY Times readers because they’re good enough, they’re smart enough, and doggone it, people like them!

 

I didn’t realize this was an option.

The deranged drifter charged with gunning down a shelter worker after she fought off his rape attempt refused to show up to court Monday for the first day of his ​murder ​trial.

West Spruill has been a no-show to Bronx Supreme Court before –

Huh. You learn something new every day.

 

Veeshir Vact Check: True!

Dr. Herbert Lin, one of the nation’s pre-eminent thinkers on cybersecurity policy, shuns the internet-connected devices that fill some American homes.

He’ll have nothing to do with “smart” refrigerators, hands-free home speakers he can call by name, intelligent thermostats and the like.

“People say to me, ‘How can you have a doctorate in physics from MIT and not trust in technology?’ And I look at them and say, ‘How can I have a doctorate in physics from MIT and trust technology?’ ” Lin said.

The more you know the more paranoid you are.

Also, I wonder how many viruses (virii?) I picked up at that site.

 

More totally impartial judiciating!

In Fourth Circuit Hearing on Obama’s Travel Restrictions, ACLU Lawyer Admits, Sure, This Executive Order Might Be Legal if Hillary Clinton Signed It
Well, this was all pretty much implied from the lower courts’ reasoning — which always centered not on the law itself, but on statements Trump made (or was alleged by Rudy Giulliani to have made).

Minus those statements, then the EO passes muster. It’s facially constitutional. But they’re saying a bad man wants to pass it, which makes it unconstitutional by prior statements.

 

Hmmmm, what’s the current state of American Jurisprudence?

Chief Justice John Roberts first says the mandate in the law requiring individuals to buy health insurance is not a tax.

Then he says it is a tax.

He upholds the individual mandate—as a tax, not a penalty—as the law of the land. But then says it would not be “unlawful” for Americans to violate the law’s mandate that they “shall” buy health insurance–as long as they are willing to pay the “penalty” for not obeying the law.

 

So what you’re saying is that if you pass a law saying it’s not a tax it is a tax, except when it’s not, and Trump’s a doody-head?

I really need to read the commerce clause more closely cuz I just don’t see that. Or is it the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness clause?

 

Is this true? Cuz if it is, I don’t like it.

A judge on Tuesday erased a 2013 murder conviction against former NFL star Aaron Hernandez, ruling that case law in Massachusetts has long established that defendants who die before their appeals are heard should have their convictions vacated. (emphasis me, V)

I do not like that at all.

 

 

So…you remember when we are, right?

Yeah…. about that.…..

So..what size 12 gauge shot should I use for deer?

A more scholarly look at it.

Ungulate gnawing on bone has been reported in the taphonomic and zooarchaeological literature, but there are no known reports of ungulates altering human remains. Herein, we report on the first known photographic evidence of deer gnawing human remains. (emphasis none of your business, V)

Doesn’t make it any better.

 

‘Reality!!!!’ is winning on points, the only way reality can win is with a TKO, or the asteroid I guess.

Roger L. Simon writes

If the 2016 presidential election were actually about genuine political policies, Donald Trump would defeat Hillary Clinton in one of the biggest landslides of all time.

Well yeah, but they’ve been making sure it’s about anything but what’s going on in the world or what Hillary! and Trump have been saying they’ll do.

Our fine media betters have to create a ‘Reality!!!!” more conducive to a Hillary! win or the stupid voters might not figure out for themselves that they’re supposed to vote for her.

 

I saw the headline for this story, “Inflation about to explode higher” and I had half a post written about how it’s already exploded higher, but our fine governmental betters, aided and abetted by our fine media betters, have been hiding it. But then I started reading the article (I know. But sometimes I feel I should click the links I post and read what’s linked.)

We all know the BLS artificially suppresses the CPI through bullshit… adjustments made by government apparatchiks at the behest of their politician bosses. Some obscure theoretical academic  calculation called owners equivalent rent accounts for almost a quarter of the CPI weighting.

It has no relation to reality as it has increased by only 12% since 2012, while the Case Shiller Housing Price Index is up 52% over the same time frame.

Exactly. Everything I buy is more expensive, ridiculously in some cases. Coffee has increased in price, by a bunch, as the package it comes in has become smaller. I save Folger’s coffee plastics for storing stuff like rice or I might not have noticed how much smaller they’ve become.

‘Reality!!!!’ has to trump (heh) reality or the wrong people might be elected.

 

Chemical warfare in Mosul, but that’s one reality that goes against the ‘Reality!!!!’ that Obama is not a feckless incompetent on the international stage.

Up to 1,000 people have been treated for breathing problems linked to fumes from a sulfur plant set ablaze during fighting with Islamic State in northern Iraq and U.S. officials say U.S. forces at a nearby airfield are wearing protective masks

Hmmm, now why haven’t our fine media betters been noticing this? The Wash Post has an article where they mention this, but every other article is in a furrin newspaper, like the Grauniad (which I only link to point and laugh).

 

Another result of Obama-helping ‘Reality!!!!’, the Turks are helping the Russians help the murderous Syrian dictator fight the “moderate rebels”, called “Syrian Democratic Forces”(SDF), J Effin Kerry is all excited about being on our side. The problem is that there are Kurdish forces in the SDF, and Turkey feels the same way about the Kurds they do about Armenians.

Turkish-backed rebels have launched an offensive to seize a north Aleppo town held by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) coalition led by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).

So Russian allies in the region are fighting our allies in the region.

We’re back in the Cold War, Hillary!’s “reset” button reset us to 1968. Another reality we have to ignore.

If anybody wants to know what “feckless disregard of reality” means……

A senior U.S. defence official said the groups struck by Turkish jets were not themselves U.S.-backed but were “close to and friendly with” the fighters Washington is working with.

Yeah, “close and friendly” in this case means, “They’re our allies when they’re over there (points to the left) but not when they’re over there (points toward Allepo)!” In other words, nobody in the world not an American citizen is afraid of Obama.

Remember, “Reality!!!!” is much easier to control than reality but reality always wins out.
Now, while I deplore my racism, does this look like “mostly peaceful” protesters are getting ready to make the ‘mostly peaceful’ protest even more mostly-peaceful? Or could it be totally not-jihadis getting ready to totally not perform terror acts in NC?

Police are investigating yet another gun store robbery in North Carolina….

The incident is the latest in a series of pawn and gun shop robberies in the area—many of which use similar techniques….

According to WSOC TV, more than 420 guns have been stolen in the Charlotte area this year.

Either way, I’m sure lawful gun owners will be blamed for whatever the deal is. That’s officially approved ‘Reality!!!!’, reality cannot be allowed to intrude on the current election.

 

In “Reality!!!!!” xtians are the violent extremists who react violently when their religion is subject to free-speech!.

In reality, not so much.

A new head on a baby Jesus statue is causing some to look twice in a Sudbury, Ont., churchyard.

The head — which went missing from the pearly white statue a year ago — has been replaced by a handmade terracotta sculpture created by a local artist.

Get that? Those violent Xtians are “looking twice”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So what’s the problem with the new head?

not-fatwa-worthy

 

Imagine if that were Mohamed? Who would be more outraged, the NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc. or ‘moderate Muslims’?

Instead, most Christians have not even heard about it. I saw this a few days ago and I figured someone would mention it, but that story is it.

The priest’s comment is priceless.

“It really is shocking to the eyes because of the big contrast in colour,” the church’s priest Gérard Lajeunesse told CBC News.

Really? The color is why it’s shocking to the eyes? Not because you’ve replaced Jesus with Baal?

With the most blatantly unnecessary yet surprising comment ever in the history of ever.

“I wasn’t trained for this in seminary.”

You’d think they might have taught him the difference between Baal and Jesus in seminary. You’d be wrong apparently.

 

Let’s take a break from ‘Reality!!!!’and reality to look at some “REALITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

 

So queertext focuses on the “material, erotice realities of our bodies”?

It’s funny, when I was in HS we were told that letting the little head do the thinking for the big head was bad. In the glorious Now!, it’s required.

 

What did we learn today?

Not a damned thing except priests in northern Ontario do some good drugs.

 

 

What The Fuck?

WTF is wrong with this world?

The asshole who is currently wearing a pope-hat had a nice photo-op where he was all into helping the Christians being murdulated by our fine, Religion of Peace brothers in the Levant.

 

A Christian brother and sister from Syria felt blessed to have been among the dozen refugees selected to start a new life in Italy — but now say their savior, Pope Francis, abandoned them on a Greek island, …

Their dreams were shattered, though, when they were informed the following day that they would not be traveling to Rome. Instead, three Muslim families were taken.

Asked why they were all Muslim, Francis said there was something wrong with the papers of a Christian family on the list.

 

Yeah, the problem with their papers is that they’re Christian.

Now, I can accept (if not understand) most lefties hating Christians, but the fucking pope?

So in a clash of religions, the Pope is not on Jesus’ side.

Sorta funny, in an armageddon way.

I wish this wasn’t satire.

Just hours after the Justice Department contested the Supreme Court delay of a federal mandate for contraceptive insurance, a plaintiff’s attorney announced that the Little Sisters of the Poor would form a collective bargaining unit and seek an exemption from ObamaCare.

When I saw the puppy blender link I didn’t realize it was satire and I was never so proud of the Catholic Church.

Hopefully they see the link and realize that a good idea is a good idea.
