What I can’t figure out is how people can worship Hillary Clinton with a religious fervor.

My opinion of her disciples.

Their opinion of  the matter.

Hillary Clinton’s pastoral adviser urged her to keep her head up following her unexpected Election Day loss in November and compared the election to Good Friday, the day Jesus was crucified.

“It is Friday, but Sunday is coming … This is not the devotional you wish to receive this day. While Good Friday may be the starkest representation of a Friday that we have, life is filled with a lot of Fridays,” wrote United Methodist City Society Executive Director the Rev. Bill Shillady in an email to Clinton obtained by CNN. “Friday is the day that it all falls apart and all hope is lost. We all have Fridays. But, as the saying goes, ‘Sunday’s coming!'”

I could understand following her because your face is in the trough, but that religious fervor is flabberastical.

 

Let’s flashback to News We Didn’t Need To Know Under Obama But That Is Now Noticing Years After It Would Have Been Useful!!!!!

Tuesday’s bombshell Washington Post story that the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has determined North Korea is capable of constructing miniaturized nuclear weapons that could be used as warheads for missiles – possibly ICBMs – left out a crucial fact: DIA actually concluded this in 2013.  The Post also failed to mention that the Obama administration tried to downplay and discredit this report at the time.

That’s my problem with Foxnews, they had to know about this back then, why didn’t Bill O’Reilly or their news folks report this? One O’Reilly opening rant on this could have accomplished something, but they all ignored it. You can’t say, “The Obama admin tried to blah blah  fucking blah blah.”

Why?

During an April 11, 2013, House Armed Services Committee hearing, Congressman Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., inadvertently revealed several unclassified sentences from a DIA report that said DIA had determined with “moderate confidence” that North Korea has the capability to make a nuclear weapon small enough to be launched with a ballistic missile.

Our fine media betters knew it. Our fine Congressional betters knew. None of them did shit about it. Of course, Obama did use federal agencies to enforce his will as to what he wanted to be reported, but still…

 

I’m sorta flabbergasted but mostly just laughing my ass off.  A Stephen Green at the Puppy Blender’s post in its entirety.

NOT GETTING IT DEP’TMattis claims North Korea diplomacy is working, but Trump intensifies threats.

Has CNN never heard of good cop/bad cop?

So James, Mad-Dog, Have-A-Plan-To-Kill-Everybody-You-Meet, Mattis is playing the good cop.

C’mon, that’s fucking hilarious. Our poofy-haired maniac is fucking with the Norks.

I know I’m often am the only one who laughs at my jokes but you have to admit that’s fucking funny. I cannot express how absolutely hilarious I find it.

Of course, I haven’t clicked the CNN article, but I would bet a whole lot the article doesn’t match the headline, CNN lies a lot you know. But that’s another Stephen Green post entirely.

 

The can has been kicked about as far as it can go before the fucking Norks rhetoric backs them into a corner and they start lobbing missiles at Guam, Japan or Hawaii. Or even open ocean. They’re going to have to up the provocation. As we all know, the sequel has to be more ‘splodey than the original. We’re at the part in the movie franchise where they get preachy and try to save the whales or get really, really ‘splody and nuke the whales. I’m betting on the nuke thing.

 

Of course, the WSJ also knows which poofy-haired maniac is the cause of all the problems.

China sees a war of words between the U.S. and North Korea as frustrating its efforts to reduce tensions on the Korean Peninsula, leaving it with few palatable options.

Notice the tone of that makes the murderous commie dictators in China the reasonable ones. Trump and the insanely-murderous Nork, commie dictator are the unruly ones.

What they refuse to see is that the murderous commie dictators in China like it when the world backs down from the maniac running the North Korean gulag so of course they’re going to act that way.

Here’s my favorite part.

A U.S. Navy destroyer sailed within 12 nautical miles of one of China’s artificial islands in the South China Sea on Thursday, the Reuters news agency reported, in the latest American challenge to Chinese territorial claims

The islands the murderous, expansionist, commie dictators in China built in order to lay claim to international waters. The WSJ here is taking the side of murderous , expansionist, commie dictators in China against the rest of the world.

Second favorite part

Mr. Zhao, the nuclear policy specialist, said a consensus among Chinese officials and experts is that more pressure should be exerted on the U.S. to persuade it to talk directly with North Korea. Beijing remains hopeful that Washington will relax its conditions for negotiations with Pyongyang, as it has appeared to do in recent months, he said.

Because negotiations with the Norks have worked so well in the past. Just ask the totally reasonable, murderous, expansionist, commie dictators in China!!!!!

Jackass.

Speaking of jackasses:

Not getting reality! Why The GOP Didn’t Repeal And Replace!!! It could have been 11 words, “Because they like the power it gives them over our lives.” but it’s long and full of idiocy.

This flirts with sanity, but it’s sort of a throw away paragraph, notice it starts with blaming Trump

Trump’s inexperience is a factor here. But the outsider president’s expectations were set in large part by seven years of Republican promises to repeal and replace the health care law. And throughout that time, Republicans were never really serious about developing a replacement plan that could pass.

Notice he writes “replacement plan.” Isn’t Reason a libertarian site? Shouldn’t he be writing, “were really serious about getting rid of it.”?

Back in 2013, when Obamacare’s exchanges went online, and immediately crashed, it was clear that many Republicans were simply not interested in productive health policy improvements. Instead, they viewed the struggles of the health care law strictly as a political cudgel to wield against political opponents.

Now, while I agree with that last statement, WTF is a fucking writer from Reason doing writing “Republicans were not interested in productive health policy improvements”? No, really. WTFF? Why is a Reason writer upset the GOP didn’t help the gov’t take over healthcare or have their own plan for  the gov’t to take over healthcare? WTFF?

These efforts take significant time and energy. Democrats and their allies on the left spent nearly two decades working through ideas and building broad consensus after the failure of President Bill Clinton’s health care plan in the early 1990s

WTFF? Is this guy really that stupid? Has Reason really sunk that low?

Broad fucking consensus? They purged their party of Blue Dogs, bribed and threatened most of the rest and rammed it through using a Congressional trick with only Dems voting for it. How the fuck is that a “Broad Consensus”? I mean, how the fuck can a writer at a supposedly libertarian site even think that much less write it?

This is where Trump’s experience comes into play. Trump, an outsider with no history with the Republican politics, was not in on the plot. He did not know that it was, essentially, a ruse.

Oh, I’d say he knew that, but he was trying to get them to do what they didn’t want to do but that he wanted done. I’d say he’s not as stupid as this writer. I mean, if I could figure it out from my crappy apt in AJ, I’m pretty sure Trump could figure it out from his much better view of our Ruling Elite!!!!.

But Trump, a neophyte who has demonstrated no in-depth understanding of health care policy or the political dynamics that surround, and who did not bother to educate himself on those issues, could not and did not play this role.

Another idiot who thinks he knows better than Trump how to negotiate and get shit done. He’s not a neophyte, he’s been bribing politicians for decades, I’m pretty sure he knows how to get shit done in DC far better than this lefty writer at Reason.

It didn’t help that Trump’s victory caught congressional Republicans by surprise

Hardee har har har. It did catch a lot of people by surprise, I won’t deny that, but what’s important is that here’s where a Reason writer defends pols who were totally sure they could not keep the promises they so solemnly made to get elected for at least 6 years.

I would expect a Reason writer to gleefully point that out, but in a “See! I told you they were lying assholes!!!!” way, not as a fucking defense. WTFF?

The failure, then, was party wide. Republicans in Congress weren’t prepared to repeal and replace Obamacare, and may never have intended to.

May never have? In the last week or two we have seen two previous, GOP House majority leaders admit they never meant to do it. May never have? WTFF?

And now Trump is merely continuing the cycle of dysfunction, using the failure of the GOP health care effort to stoke tensions within his own party that are politically convenient for him, but unlikely to advance any policy goals.

Trump is continuing the cycle of dysfunction? Trump is smashing the cycle of dysfunction. Trump Smash! That’s his job now that the GOP won’t do what they’re supposed to do.

And he is accomplishing something else I didn’t realize I’d see, masks are off, battle lines are drawn. All manner of things are becoming clear to even the most obtuse and non-paying-attention. I mean, not Shepard Smith, but you know, intelligent people.

In conclusion, WTF happened to Reason? That has all the in-depth, impartial analysis you’d expect from an Atlantic, Newsweek or Media Matters article, not Reason.

 

Coup Coup

Kristolnacht keeps getting delayed.

Kristol followed up the NYT article with a gem of an idea that conservatives should rebrand themselves as liberals: “Seriously. We’re for liberal democracy, liberal world order, liberal economy, liberal education.”

Okay, that’s funny. That’s what lefties do, keep rebranding things to try to make them more palatable instead of actually working to fix what makes them unpalatable in the first place.

I do applaud the effort, he can call his new party the “We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party”, that’s its raison d’etre.

But in perhaps Kristol’s shadiest move, he is trying to pin the NYT article on Pence although it is highly likely the story idea came from Kristol himself. The two reporters, Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns, wrote a very similar piece in March 2016 about efforts to derail Trump; Kristol was cited then as having “circulated a memo to a small number of conservative allies detailing the process by which an independent candidate could get on general-election ballots across the country.” The week before the article was published, Burns sub-tweeted Kristol and said “Today is the Super Bowl of Bill Kristol Twitter.” Kristol also helped promote Burns’ book last year about a dysfunctional Trump campaign.

Here’s the punchline

I wonder why he doesn’t run for office? Sure, he’d start slow but at the end, after the voting, I figure he could make a serious putsch!

 

Troops Sent To American Border!!!!!!!!!!! Trump is sending killer myrmidons to kill undocu….ummmmmmm what?

SAINT-BERNARD-DE-LACOLLE, QUEBEC The Latest on the increasing flow of migrants over the U.S.-Canadian border at a remote spot in northern New York and southern Quebec (all times local):

1:40 p.m.

Canada has sent about 100 soldiers to a remote spot on the Quebec-New York border where asylum seekers are crossing illegally.

It’s the utter hypocrisy of our fine media betters that pisses me off the most.

If 23 Canadians got together in Ottawa to protest Trump, CNN would be there, but we read about this in the Miami Herald.

 

The Wash Post, purveyors of fake news via anonymous sources, innuendo, selective reportage and outright lies, let’s some reality in.

But lately, as Democratic leadership has increasingly embraced the far-left impulses of its base, I’ve become convinced that the left needs to think harder about the unintended consequences of such benevolent-seeming proposals.

In isolation, each of these policies has the potential to make workers more costly to hire. Cumulatively, they almost certainly do…

Take the proposal to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour, a policy endorsed in the Democratic Party’s new “Better Deal” platform.

An increase in the federal minimum wage, stuck at $7.25 for eight years, is long overdue. But more than doubling it would likely result in massive job losses and cuts in work hours….

It burnssssssss!

You can hear the grinding teeth in the background of this part

As strange as it feels to say something nice about policies being pursued by the Trump administration, this might be a better approach.

So what happens when reality invades the Wash Post? Comments!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right out of the blocks we have what could be a winner in the utterly non-introspective comment category or could be someone noticing reality

3rd comment

She gets paid to write. Her paycheck is based on the value she creates, in writing columns that people read and appreciate, contributing to subscription and advertising revenues. Her pay is market based, which is the only legitimate way to determine wages.

On many websites I’d think it was someone noticing reality, but I’ve seen too much absolute idiocy in the comments at the Wash Post to be more than 25% sure it’s an intelligent comment. I would bet that comment is meant to defend how much she’s paid while not realizing it could mean minimum wage earners. Which, as we all know, the real minimum wage is 0, which a lot of them are about to make.

There were 1200 comments when I clicked, I only read the first 30 or so, not much hate just a lot of Erudite People discussing this Dispassionately, like the guy with Phd in his name who claimed that there was no economic data to prove that $15/hour minimum wage hurt the economy, I’m sure they get much angrier by about 50 and downright scary long before 500.

 

via Babalu, we see that, apparently, they aren’t doing communism right in Venezuela.

Airlines are continuing to pull out of Venezuela, and this time it’s not just about trapped cash but a whole series of grievances including staff held up at gunpoint, luggage theft, poor runway maintenance and low quality jet fuel.

I blame Trump. And the alt-right!

I just wish all these right wingers would stop sabotaging every commie paradise!

 

More substance added to Trump’s Usubstantiated!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Claims about illegal voting.

A James Madison University student was sentenced to prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to registering dead voters for the Democratic Party during the 2016 election.

You have to admit that having a student at James Madison gives it that extra kick we expect.

Right in the balls.

 

Eddie Murphy did it first.

He didn’t do it funnier though.

Looking at the news we see a lot that we all saw and knew that is becoming too obvious to ignore and other stuff we saw and thought we knew but were wrong.

Of course, the ‘wrong’ category was usually that we weren’t paranoid enough.

 

This one really makes me feel stupid, maybe federalism really is all about slavery?!?!?!?!

California’s top labor law enforcer wants federal immigration agents to stay away from offices where state investigators weigh claims about underpaid employees and workplace retaliation.

Not technically slavery, but importing low-wage workers from areas with a fairly uniform population is about the same, this time it’s Hispanics instead of blacks, and they make them pay for their own crappy houses and cheap food, but the result is the same. A class of similar looking workers who do what they’re told.

Her directive followed three instances over the past 10 months in which immigration agents sought information about California workers who had filed claims against employers. In two cases, immigration agents attempted to attend hearings where investigators discuss claims with workers and their employers, Su said. In all three cases, the agents left when they were asked, she said.

They screw them cuz they’re illegal and can’t resort to the law against a politically powerful boss (one that gives donations to CA pols). They can’t whip them but this ridiculous century is young and the forces of Tolerance and Mostly Peace can justify a lot of evil in the name of Tolerance and Fairness.

 

I don’t know if this counts as being wrong, it is very cool though. I’ve been harping on the “Low Unemployment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! with 100,000,000 who’ve given even looking for work that aren’t counted But now we see this.

 few hours later, the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics said the economy added 209,000 jobs in July; the number of employed people jumped by 345,000 to 153,513,000 in July, setting a third straight monthly record; the number of Americans counted as not in the labor force, meaning they don’t have a job and are not looking for one, dropped for a third straight month to 94,657,000; and the nation’s unemployment rate also dropped a tenth of a point, to 4.3 percent.

That’s Winning!, are sick of it yet? I know someone who is.

Drop in Unemployment Rate: All About the Rounding

“The unemployment rate to three decimals was virtually unchanged at 4.350% versus 4.357% last month, but after rounding fell by one-tenth to 4.3%”

We’ll file that under Stuff That Is Only Written When A Republican (Or Trump) Is POTUS. But then, we all know that shit is just business as usual for our fine media betters.

 

China likes what the Norks are doing, they are even directing it IMO. How else can the Norks get such impressive hackers? They also seem to keep on keeping on even though there are SANCTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!

A North Korea defector has revealed how the dictatorship manages to bypass international sanctions and fund it’s nuclear weapons programme.

Ri Jong Ho, 59, had been raising money for the regime for decades, but defected in 2014 and now lives in Virginia, U.S.

He says UN sanctions against North Korea is futile as Pyongyang has long been able to work their way around attempts to cut off trade…

A major part of his job was helping to ferry ‘between $50 million and $100 million’ from China to North Korea, he told CNN…

Another thing it shows, that we all knew when we were trying it on Saddam’s Iraq,  sanctions don’t hurt murderous dictators, they screw Teh Peepul*

However, he added, the general population never benefit from these money transfers, as the money is used to fund the lavish lives of Kim, his family and the Pyongyang elite.

The other thing that shows that I say I know but others dispute is that there is no such thing as International Law. Chinese companies are owned by the State, pretending they’re like companies in free nations is ridiculous, they do what the gov’t wants.

He said that when a North Korean company is banned from trading with China, the government simply changes the name of the company and the relationship is resumed – and the Chinese companies are only interested in profits.

There can be no law without a credible enforcement mechanism. The ICC in the Hague is about useless. They found against China in the South China Sea a year ago and it changed…not a fucking thing except for people who pretend Internation Law is a thing to say, “See! The system works!!!!”, except it didn’t. If you can’t force murderous dictators to follow International Law, it’s not real law.

 

*I would not class Cuba’s sanctions in that as other countries can sell to Cuba, that’s an American only sanction.

 

 

Ace writes about Sessions going after leakers and sez

The problem is: So many executive employees are leaking that any investigation will undoubtedly turn up friends of the investigators. And the investigators themselves may be leakers.

(Does anyone think the leaker James Comey was obeying the president’s order to find the leakers?)

So, I don’t know if you trust anyone currently in the government to aggressively investigate their John McCain-style Good Friends.

What I know is that if there are people, there are factions that don’t like each other.

What Sessions needs to do is get some bureaucratic cliques to go after each other. Get one guy to tell you which assholes he hates are leaking, then they’ll tell you the first asshole was leaking.

Divide and conquer, they’ll supply the division, you supply the conquering. Pretty soon you put all the Obama leftovers in jail where they belong to clear out room for the next set of assholes. Hopefully they’ll hate Americans less.

 

Okay, I knew this was obstruction of justice, I also knew Debbie Wasserman Schultz was an idiot, I didn’t realize she’d loudly proclaim both things in one sentence.

She threatened “consequences” on May 18  for the chief of the Capitol Police unless the laptop was returned — despite police contending it was needed to help determine whether a staffer may have violated the House’s cybersecurity.

“This was not my laptop. I have never seen that laptop. I don’t know what’s on the laptop,” she said Thursday. She said it was Imran’s laptop but purchased using taxpayer funds from her office.

So it wasn’t hers? That means she inserted herself into a criminal investigation for a third party.

Don’t get me wrong, like you I know we don’t have a rule of law for prominent Dems so she won’t pay for it except possibly electorally, but admitting felony obstruction of justice is still even more stupid than I figured she would be.

 

I already knew this was my favorite Light For Darkness, we see this, which I already knew

Border security agents estimate upwards of 500 migrants a day are now breaching Canada’s border by walking along a dirt crossing into the Quebec town of Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle.

Once there, they get what they want.

They get arrested, thereby opening the door to claiming refugee status, safe haven, and welfare benefits that will be paid through the property taxes of whatever municipality becomes their home.

Gaming Canada’s system is very easy, if you don’t have identification so they can’t figure out where you’re from, they can’t deport you for instance.

I also knew Trudeau was a lefty fool. But what I didn’t know was exactly how lefty and how foolish. This is the graphic used by Our Light.

Seriously? Canada has a core identity, they’re Not America. Just ask any Canadian in Europe.

 

Coup Coup

We all knew this, but more are starting to notice it.

Since the election there has been an unprecedented attempt to unwind the election result. Events have accelerated on several fronts lately with attempts from outside and within to paralyze the Trump administration…

All the while, the permanent bureaucracy, particularly in the intelligence community, started an unending and almost daily series of leaks meant to paralyze the administration…

That concept of a silent of slow-motion coup would be picked up as the effort against Trump accelerated, as I wrote on May 18, 2017, Some dare call the anti-Trump feeding frenzy a “coup” attempt.

It’s getting too blatant. Our fine betters really seem to think that if they Get Rid Of Trump we’ll all give up and go back to sleep.

Too late, the part of America that makes it work are Woke too.

 

What we all knew but that Shep Smith and other ignorant and foolish lefties claimed was A Lie By Trump!!!!!!!

Four state Registry of Motor Vehicle clerks along with two other people were arrested Wednesday after authorities say they were making false identifications through the registry and selling them to people living in the country illegally, some of whom had been deported in the past.

Some of those phony licenses and identifications were used to fraudulently register to vote in Boston, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

By ‘some’, I’d bet this “journolist” means, “Most”. The Dems and their media arm were busy encouraging it after all.

But Trump Was Racist And A Liar When He Pointed Out What We All Knew!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

The FBI are Hillary’s Bitches! and the media did everything they could to hide Hillary’s feloniosities!

A new email dump from the FBI via a FOIA request by the ACLJ reveals what appears to be collusion between the media and the DOJ to squash the story about the 2016 meeting between Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton on the tarmac in Phoenix, AZ.

Also Comey reportedly said the FBI had no documents related to this meeting to fill a prior FOIA request. That apparently isn’t true, given this new email dump.

Well, duh. We watched that shit Live! On TV!.

It’s pretty endy and funny that the Dept. of “Justice” was doing everything they could to forestall justice and the media, supposed disseminater of news, was hiding the news. The collusion angle is what gives it that extra ooomph.

 

Okay, this one we all knew and Krauthammer knows it as well since he’s one of the ones he’s talking about.

Fox News commentator Charles Krauthammer warned Thursday night that members of the political establishment, including some Republicans, are angling to remove President Trump from office.

That’s very Clintonian. Admit as little as is proven but deny what can be implausibly denied.

‘Sure, some Republicans want Trump, but not all or even most!’ when it’s all of the DC set, whether GOP pols or conservative “Thinkers”. Krauthammer is a Never-Trumper in good standing after all.

 

Okay, this one just makes me laugh. After so long trying to conflate legal and illegal immigration, our fine betters have managed to make Americans accept that they are the same!

Roughly sixty percent of surveyed respondents want to stop all legal and illegal immigration, says a pair of sophisticated polls which allowed people to speak their mind without fear of progressives’ hate.

Mission Accomplished!

It’s funny that these polls implicitly accept that we are no longer allowed free speech by our fine Tolerant and Mostly-Peaceful countryxhim.

 

This one you would think we didn’t know,

A LOCAL council has banned the construction of a synagogue in Bondi because it could be a terrorist target,

But we did know that! As everyone knows, and Australia is entirely peopled with criminals, therefore they would surely be all in on the Felon’s Veto!

I don’t know enough about Australia to know if there will be heavy blowback on this but I hope so. In a free nation you really should give The Bitch the right to Ask Fer It!!!!, don’t you think?

 

Nother endy and funny deal.

The Honolulu Civil Beat coined a new term with this headline: NY Congressman Wants To Take Away Hawaii’s Gun-Control Rights.

Gun Control Rights, it’s right there in the Constitution! It’s in the Pursuit of Happiness clause.

Today’s Puritans have to pursue our happiness.

 

I knew that everything we thought was normal as little as a few months ago is now a hate-crime, but I didn’t realize it would get this ridiculous this soon.

…Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) have assigned films a rating (i.e. G, PG, PG-13, etc.) based on their age appropriateness level.

But one group is seeking to add a new criteria to those age-inappropriate themes: gender roles.

 

As little as 10 years ago it was exactly the opposite. Hell, 50 years ago you could barely talk about that stuff in a non-X-Rated movie.

In theory, the system is quite simple: a film will be awarded the organisation’s seal of approval if it presents characters that defy gender stereotypes. Films designed for early childhood (between the ages of two and six) should depict boys and girls as friends and equals. By the time of early adolescence (between 11 and 13), films must demonstrate that worth is based on more than just physical beauty…

…CSM system increases accountability: “people making these products are sure they’re gender-balanced when they’re profoundly not.”

The problem with this bit of indoctrination is that they’re trying to change human nature by browbeating us.

We need something like Moore’s law that processor speeds for computers will double every two years, except for lefties.

Veeshir’s Nother Law: Lefty ridiculousness will double every time you pay attention to what they’re saying.

 

I didn’t realize football started last night, it did show me something that we all know but that our fine betters are refusing to know, We Want To Watch Football, We Don’t Want To Be Proselytized At.

I flipped past the game, it was in the middle of the 4th quarter with future truck drives playing against future supermarket workers and the announcers on NBC, Chris Collingsworth and whoever, were talking about how someone really needed to sign Colin Kaepernik because he’s what they need! Whenever a QB is injured, they said, Kaepernik Should Be In The Conversation.

They should be asking exactly the opposite question but they’re still denying that football fans don’t want to listen to your politics, we want to watch fucking football.

 

Okay, this one just bothers me cuz, while I have a low opinion of NYC people in general, this is just ignorant.

Though of course bread and butter are eaten all over, the buttered roll (or roll with butter, as it is known in parts of New Jersey) is a distinctly local phenomenon. Mention its name outside the New York metropolitan area and you would very likely be met with blank incomprehension.

He says, ‘NY metro area’ cuz he’s parochial and doesn’t get to upstate NY much. James Lileks, who I like, ignorantly responds

A Buttered. Roll.

I’ll grant you this: we didn’t have Buttered Rolls as such in Fargo. We had Rolls, with Butter. Perhaps that’s the difference. But when you went down to coffee in the basement after church, you got some rolls – often the type that split apart into three segments – and you put butter on them. Any holiday dinner, any family meal large enough to require a Relish Tray – rolls, with butter.

Yeah,  they do that in NY too, but nowhere outside NYS and the states around NYC are they laid out in the morning at every place that sells coffee.

Heaps of buttered hard rolls ready to pick up with your coffee att every place that sells coffee, except Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme, they’re right next to the self-service coffee station.

I don’t see that anywhere else in the country. Most places that sell coffee don’t even have hard rolls unless they also sell sandwiches and it often takes far too long to explain that I just want a buttered fucking roll for my fucking coffee.

When I first starting traveling outside NY I used to ask all the time and people would look at me as if I was crazy, now I don’t even bother. Especially since it’s usually in the morning before I’ve had my fucking coffee. I have a low tolerance for people before I’ve had my coffee. Okay, lower tolerance.

I buy lots of french and italian bread and rolls so I make them at home but when I’m driving across the country all I want is a fucking buttered fucking roll and it’s fucking too much to fucking ask.

Sorry, pet peeve.

David, can I call you David?, Don’t look back in anger. It reduces the quality of the now, look back and laugh. It doesn’t make now any better but at least you’re laughing!

 

Look back and recall the laughs we had when Usubstantiated!!!!, Incidental!!!!!!!!! and Inadvertent!!!!!!!!!!! were the Journolist Words Of The Day

Nunes disclosed in his letter that the former Obama administration had “easy access” to sensitive classified information and that they may have used it to “achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information.”

Congressional investigators uncovered that “one official [whose] position has no apparent intelligence-related function”—now believed to be Power—”made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama administration.”

Hmmmm, so there was spying on Trump, it was purposely leaked so that makes claims that Trump’s peeps were not targeted look like lies.

Why…. that looks astonishingly like Chicago-Machine-Politics?!?!?!?!?!?(!?!?!?!?!?!????????)

It doesn’t make a difference if it was Powers, Hillary’s Bitches in the FBI, whichever anti-American asshole collected a check for ‘being’ NSA or Joe fucking Biden, there was no legitimate reason to do that. The only reason was political.

It’s surprisingly easy to figure out what’s a real scandal for the Democratic party. If it looks like a conspiracy theory and they don’t report it, it’s true, if they harp on it, like Obama’s birth certificate deal, it’s not true.

 

We have to look back to Agree With Headlines But Disagree With The Body! (first in a series!)

McConnell Criticized For Pelosi-Like Tactics On Health Bill

I agree!

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is facing questions about his leadership after the Obamacare repeal debacle. Many Republican senators are criticizing McConnell’s strategy of crafting the bill in secret without input from members of the GOP caucus.

They did that shit for opposite reasons in relation to the legislation, Nancy wanted to pass the bill, McConnell wanted to not pass the bill. If you’re focused on fucking McCain and Collins, don’t. If Pass had more votes, more GOP senators would have happily voted no.

So the body of the article should read

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.DC) is facing questions about his leadership being a lying fuckhead after the Obamacare repeal debacle gambit. Many A Bunch of fish-throwing Republican senators are criticizing McConnell’s strategy of crafting the bill in secret without input from members of the GOP caucus to make sure Obamacare is the Law(less) of the Land. 

Same tactics, same endgame. Fuck Us!

 

You’d think we would be able to look back in anger what with all  the cameras following us around wherever we go. You’d be wrong to think that.

Regarding that abysmal clearance rate on CTA property, a reader had a good question:
Millions of dollars on cameras covering almost every inch of trains, buses, platforms and stations – and 90% of crime goes unsolved? Were taxpayers sold a bill of goods?

That’s a good point. I’d bet that thugs and criminals have known that for a while now. When one keeps not getting arrested even though he committed his crime Live! On TV! he’ll notice something so he’ll tell two accomplices and they’ll tell two accomplices and they’ll tell….

 

We’ll take time out from not looking back in anger to Look Back In Fucking Anger at one of Obama’s self-described Success Stories

More than one million malnourished young children in war-torn Yemen are at risk of cholera, the charity Save the Children warned on Wednesday as it began sending more health experts to the worst-hit areas.

Sonomabatch. Recall when Obama declared Yemen a success story.

He boned us, but he boned the rest of the world even more. Which is sorta scary, most places do not get even more ridiculous when their leaders are too ridiculous to be believed, they go the other route. They go all too real, like commies, nazis and garden-variety warlords. And middle ages diseases. Jebus.

 

We’re still not looking back in anger, let’s Look At Now In Anger! Get out your squeezy bulbs!

GOP voters device

Ben Rhodes Is A Person Of Interested In A House Hearing!!!!!!!! (who cares what it was about?)

House Freedom (FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Caucus Member (singular) Calls For Mueller’s Resignation!!!!!!!!

House Judiciary Committee Wants To Investigate Hillary!!!!

I could go on all day, but until it’s the Dept of Justice, not the Dept of “Justice”, it don’t mean shit. It means worse than shit.

Cuz it’s being thrown in our faces.

 

 

ABCNews looks back and I’m confused.

Foreign automakers have received billions of dollars in subsidies and tax incentives to build factories in the U.S. and create American jobs.

A new CBS News primetime series, “CBSN: On Assignment,” uncovers the hidden foreign workforce being used to build sections of U.S. auto plants. The show premieres on CBS on Monday, July 31 at 10 p.m. EST & PST, streaming simultaneously on CBSN, the network’s streaming news service.

For three years, Gerald Greiner managed safety on American construction projects for a German contractor called Eisenmann. His first job was at Mercedes in Vance, Alabama in 2013.

They did that investigation when Obama was POTUS. Why? At first I figured they were trying to make Trump look bad by reporting it, but it makes Trump look good.

Has anybody seen this on any TV news? I’m pretty surprised they even did that investigation, it seems like the kind of thing that got Cheryl Atkinsson  and some others fired.

Weird, good, but weird.

 

Brett Bozell of Media Research Center sez:

The media need to know, when reporting on Senator Flake and his “book,” that the author is a deceiver out for personal and financial gain.  I also call on my conservative brethren to denounce this impostor, who dishonorably claims to speak for conservatism, in the strongest possible terms.

 

Bozell’s in California, right? They have legal weed right? He’s been paying far too much attention to Minitrue and Congress for more than a decade to expect anything of the sort. I’m not against it, but it’s tilting at particularly annoying and willfully ignorant windmills.

While I’m For tilting at windmills, sooner or later Don Quixote is going to win, usually you just get ground down for grain… or something I don’t know I lost the metaphor a little while ago.

 

Here’s something can look back in laughter in a few months.

A Virginia Republican challenging Rep. Barbara Comstock in the party’s primary has spent the past couple of months posting about penis enlargement techniques on his personal website.

If this hits the Va news he should go with it, At least you know I’m not A Big Dick, unlike the rest of the GOP.

Of course his opponent could go with it as well, “My opponent wants to go to DC so he can be a big dick like Paul Ryan!”

 

Historically White, Upper-Class, Ivy League, University Has Panel On White Privilege. Following link to link to link we find this

The event, in its second year, drew 300 participants that mostly consisted of K-12 teachers and principals, the institute’s director Amy Wells said in a phone interview with The College Fix. The four-day conference included plenary sessions, dozens of workshops and dialogue sessions.

One presentation, called “Whiteness in schools,” provided “a history of Whiteness…

I don’t really care, I just hope at least one Powerpoint presentation had this picture.

 

Not cuz I care, just cuz  you know the participants in this idiocy would look back in Furious Anger while I want to look back in laughter.

 

Speaking of whiteness, arrogance and taints, let’s Look Now In Laughter

UNC’s arrogance over academic scandal has tainted the school’s once-great image

From 1993 through 2011, about 3,100 UNC students – nearly half of whom were athletes – took African studies classes that proved to be bogus. Classes generally did not meet; homework was not assigned.

Most required little work – a simple term paper at the end of the semester often sufficed.

UNC hired attorney Kenneth Wainstein to investigate, and he found that about 40 percent of those term papers were at least in part plagiarized, yet were accorded an average grade of A-minus.

Can we discuss the racism inherent in the system?

If I had substituted “wymyn” for “athlete” and “Wymyn’s Studies” or “Gender Studies” for “African studies” would that paragraph have been any different?

Of course it would have! That’s not “Arrogant”, that’s “Empowerment!” and it wouldn’t be a scandal.

It would still be full of taints.

 

I will honk and even arf for this fish that Trump is throwing.

Officials with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) signed a waiver of environmental regulations on Tuesday to allow construction of upgrades to the border wall and new wall prototype projects to break ground.

Hell, forget arfin and honkin’, I had to cut-n-paste that one-handed.

 

I hate to look back in anger, but that Yemen shit pissed me off. Updated cuz I checkedThis is the first “Obama’s Fault” I’ve posted since January (I think, I meant not to do that). Not even close. 

Fuckhead pissed me off today.

 

I’ve been driving the Caballero and it’s been nice. The A/C ain’t working, but I’ve mostly driven it at night. Today is not bad, it’s overcast and rainy so it was only about 95 when I had to run to AJ.

On the highway back from I heard a bad noise, for a second I thought it was engine related but then realized it sounded like something was dragging. I pulled over and when I stopped, it stopped. I was happy. I left the engine running when I got out.

When I opened the door the noise started again, for just a second I thought, “Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck!!!!!!!!!!!!! ME!” but it was just the side molding from the door that was dragging.

I can look back in laughter, it wasn’t so funny for a split second.

 

 

 

Does the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party want a revolution so they can get their emergency powers on?

I thought it was ridiculous at first, but the evidence just keeps mounting.

update below: I moved the gif, I had it in the wrong place. Now, back to our post!

Nother important, The Book We All Want To See!!!!!!!, Update!!!!!!!!! graphic stolen from DougM and his superior P-shop skills!

 

Now Really  Back To Our Post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For years we’ve been discussing Failure Theater  and throwing fish at us to get us riled up to FIGHT OBAMA!!!!!!, but were called unhelpful, Nazi and Tea Partier. Turns out, we were actually two of the three.

“There’s no denying that he misses all of it,” says Cantor’s former deputy chief of staff, John Murray—a sentiment the ex-congressman himself confirms. When he talks to Boehner, Cantor tells me, Boehner will say something to the effect of “I am so glad I’m not there dealing with those mm-mm-mms”—those pesky Freedom Caucus members whom many in the GOP hold responsible for sparking the party’s new populist flavor and egging on the anger that led to Trump’s election.

Unhelpful in that we noticed GOP sliminess and Tea Partier because we wanted smaller gov’t. The Nazis, of course, were mostly killed off decades ago but their ideological descendants are the ones who want the gov’t to tell private enterprise how to do business.

But Cantor goes that extra slimy step.

 Not Cantor. “I never felt like that,” he says.,,

After seven years of pledging they could dismantle Obamacare, if only they had control of Congress and the White House, Republicans…

Asked if he feels partly responsible for their current predicament, Cantor is unequivocal. “Oh,” he says, “100 percent.”

He goes further: “To give the impression that if Republicans were in control of the House and Senate, that we could do that when Obama was still in office . . . .” His voice trails off and he shakes his head. “I never believed it.”

Ride the wave! The voters are too stupid to understand!!!!!!

He says he wasn’t the only one aware of the charade: “We sort of all got what was going on, that there was this disconnect in terms of communication, because no one wanted to take the time out in the general public to even think about ‘Wait a minute—that can’t happen.’ ” But, he adds, “if you’ve got that anger working for you, you’re gonna let it be.

Everybody should be embarrassed over every arf they ever gave.

A graphic representation

 

So… should we call the new party the Constitution Party or the Fuck DC Party? I keep going back and forth. I could be convinced to call it Trump’s Party just to freak people out, so long as he has no power in the party, he is a northeast liberal after all.

 

So…. as they were lying to us and not fighting Obama, what was Obama doing?

The National Security Agency and FBI violated specific civil liberty protections during the Obama administration by improperly searching and disseminating raw intelligence on Americans or failing to promptly delete unauthorized intercepts, according to newly declassified memos that provide some of the richest detail to date on the spy agencies’ ability to obey their own rules.
The memos reviewed by The Hill were publicly released on July 11 through Freedom of Information Act litigation by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Expanding the police state tactics the GOP and the Dems want. Yeah, we saw that shit.

With the Dept of “Justice” so focused on getting Trump and fixing the last election it’s funny that with all the spying and Big Brothering they couldn’t get any serious dirt on Trump.

That should tell you a lot about both Trump and the fuckheads who are busy trying to destroy the last vestige of the rule of law in America.

 

So…. what other slimy crap was the GOP ignoring while not watching what Obama was doing and not doing what they’ve repeatedly vowed to do?

Testimony of Thor Halvorssen to the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary

In 2012 I began researching a Venezuelan corruption scandal that also involved U.S. banks, companies, and even U.S. courts. This story should have received extensive exposure on the front pages of America’s national newspapers. Fusion GPS, however, was hired to spike these stories… Even though it was clearly acting as a public relations counsel on behalf of a foreign principal, Fusion GPS never registered under FARA and was able to engage in nefarious activities without public scrutiny…

Although shielding their clients from investigative reporting was an important part of Fusion GPS’s campaign, it was by no means the only thing they did for Chávez’s cronies. Alek Boyd, a prolific investigative journalist based in London who had published extensively about Derwick’s corruption, was targeted with false accusations of being a notorious pedophile, a convicted drug trafficker, a car thief, and an extortionist. Rather than backing down after these items appeared about him online, Mr. Boyd increased his scrutiny of Derwick. Weeks later, in an unsolved crime, three men broke into Mr. Boyd’s home, stole his computer equipment, and placed photographs of his daughters, taken with a telephoto lens, into the pockets of his raincoat. Mr. Boyd subsequently received a hand-written anonymous letter threatening his daughters with rape.

Since they also are important in Get Trump, they have unqualified immunity for all criminal acts.

 

Speaking of unqualified immunity for criminal acts, anybody related to the Democrats and/or Getting Trump.

Democrat IT Spy Tries To Run To Pakistan: We Connect Some Dots For You

Since our fine media betters are far too busy creating fake news from lying anonymous sources, read that. You can tell it’s not real journalism as they use named sources and publicly available information.

Amateurs.

Now this surprises the hell out of me!

GO FIGURE: Busted Pakistani IT Staffer for the DNC Lawyers Up With… Clinton Cronies

Huh, I thought they were all working for Mueller.

 

They banned guns at George Washington’s estate. A right the man fought for and they’re pissing on it. In Virginia. The home of Thomas Jefferson, George Mason, James Madison and the aforementioned George Washington.

I got out just in time.

Meanwhile, in Florida,

Imagine you’re a fully-armed Adam Putnam, Florida’s current Agriculture Commissioner and a strong contender for governor, where do you go out to eat? Well, for starters you tell your staff to take you to a place where you can pack heat and simultaneously eat meat.

Awesome. He’s like Jeb, GOP Voters Are Racists, Bush or Charlie Crist only opposite.

 

I linked Blazing Cat Fur yesterday but didn’t link the source of the article, when I saw the article later and read it I realized I’d missed the most ridiculous part of the thing.

Along with their bold image, Clemmer wrote a poem about their first period.

By “their” they mean, “This guy who’s pretending to be a woman.” So…. did he stab himself to get his period?

Here’s what I missed.

Clemmer describes themself as an activist in the menstrual health space and has created a character called Toni the Tampon which aims to help break down the stigma around periods.

No, really. There is “activist in menstrual health space” and “Toni the Tampon” in the same sentence.

Also, there is “activist in menstrual health space” in a sentence and “Toni the Tampon” in a sentence.

 

Daily Mail fact-checks Snopes

Fact-checking website Snopes is on the verge of financial collapse…

But DailyMail.com can disclose significant facts which are entirely missing from the fact-checking website’s version of events – including the fraud allegations against Mikkeslon.

So…”Mostly False”.

Yeah, we’ve been noticing that since at least when they lied about Swift Boat Vets to try to get J Effin Kerry elected.

 

Was this even a question?

European Union (EU) countries which constructed border fences in response to the migrant crisis have seen a collapse in illegal migration, while unprotected states have seen it increase.

You still need people with balls on the other side (Hey China! Say hi to the Mongols for me!), but I’m pretty sure Hadrian showed us that walls work if you do have balls.

 

Why is Chicago called Second City?

The link’s dead, but in 2013 I wrote about

I love this one too. So NYC has a rat problem, just like any other hundreds of year old city with moldering, decaying sections, docks and underground areas, so they’re looking to fix it. A laudable goal, too bad it’s NYC pols who are in charge.

They’re going to sterilize female rats, which will mean they’re going to spread sterilizing stuff around the city.

I don’t know exactly how that’s going to fuck things up, but I do know that it will fuck things up and it won’t sterilize all the rats so all it will do is fuck things up without actually solving the problem. It will require a fix for whatever that fix fucks up.

I couldn’t find any results except in restricted areas, so I have no idea what it screwed up.

But that’s not the point, in 2017 we see

Chicago has tried just about everything to control a burgeoning rat population fueled by a construction boom and a mild winter. None of it has worked in a city seemingly overrun by the rodents.

Now, City Hall is trying something old and something new: A poison designed to make rats infertile, and dry-ice that produced promising results in parks and medians before the city was forced to stop the rat-suffocation experiment after learning the dry ice had not been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Second City indeed.

Good luck with that. I seriously wonder what horrible thing it’s going to accomplish since they cannot possibly do anything useful with moldering underground areas that have been breeding rats since before that cow burned the city down.

No, not the Golden Cow who left to try to burn the nation down, Mrs. O’Leary’s cow (who got a bum rap!).

 

Via  Zilla of the Resistance* we see something I didn’t know and it’s fucking awesome.

Almost immediately after arriving in New York, he (Wrong Way Corrigan V) filed plans for a transatlantic flight, but aviation authorities deemed it a suicide flight, and he was promptly denied. Instead, they would allow Corrigan to fly back to the West Coast, and on July 17 he took off from Floyd Bennett field, ostentatiously pointed west. However, a few minutes later, he made a 180-degree turn and vanished into a cloudbank to the puzzlement of a few onlookers.

Twenty-eight hours later, Corrigan landed his plane in Dublin, Ireland, stepped out of his plane, and exclaimed, “Just got in from New York. Where am I?”

Awe-fucking-some! It’s all Americans’ God-Given Right to risk our own lives. With the Battle Cry: Hold My Beer!

*She’s not part of the nazi/leftists ‘resistance’, she’s been resisting the nazi/leftists for a long time. 

 

The Sun, driver of our climate, is just refusing to play the old Warmening Game.

Unlike the dude above pretending to be a woman, the Sun ain’t spotting.

One sun spot.

So not only does Gaia hate Al Gore, the Sun does as well.

Problem: Powerful Politicians needs graft!

Solution:

I’ve been digging a bit more into the I-65 Bridge between Jeffersonville, IN and Louisville, KY.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_most_expensive_U.S._public_works_projects

Fourth most expensive public works project in US history. More expensive than Verazzano Narrows, the Golden Gate, or an entire freeway from Evansville to Indianapolis, and it crosses a few hundred yards of muddy Ohio river. There are bridges out there 5 miles, 10 miles, 100 miles long that didn’t cost as much.

More expensive than the Verazzano Narrows bridge in NY? Think about that, this bridge is more expensive than a project that included bribes to some of the most expensive politicians in the nation?!?!?!

 

Problem: Trump bans transgender from the US military.

Solution: LGBT Army formed to take on ISIS.

 

Problem: Sessions is all about taking our stuff.

Solution

I’m a little surprised that Matthew Yglesias said something intelligent but there it is.

 

Problem: DNC staffers are arrested for various felonies and possible espionage.

 

Solution: Media ignores it.

Again, I’m surprised minitrue outlet in good lying noticed this and still reported on it.

 

Problem: GOP voters are pissed off at the GOP.

 

Solution:

According to Breitbart, House Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Andy Biggs of Arizona and Matt Gaetz of Florida are launching a probe into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s relationship with the FBI during its investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.

Get out your squeezy bulbs!

GOP voters device

I ain’t arfing.

 

Problem:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., argued Tuesday that President Trump is trying to “bully” Attorney General Jeff Sessions in an attempt to push him out of office,

Solution: Explain that Sessions works for Trump and serves at his convenience.

Nother problem: Schumer is a lying sack of corruption so he already knows that so explaining shit to him is as useless as expecting the GOP to do what they’ve run on in the last few elections.

Ubersolution: Vote out every incumbent in America. Get rid of the county recorder in Yukon-Koyukuk Census Area, Alaska.

 

Problem: Much of Canada is too cold to be useful or even very livable.

Solution via a light in the darkness:

Because of Premier Kathleen Wynne, Ontarians are now paying almost $2 billion more a year, ostensibly to fight climate change, through her cap-and-trade carbon pricing scheme.

Wait….that’s not a solution! That’s a scam to take money from the productive to give to parasites!

Convincing Canadians they want to spend $billions to fight a made-up problem and thus, ostesibly, keep their country an ice-box is one of the most impressive cons in the history of conning.

So the real problem: What would illustrate this Henry Gondorff approved long-con?

Solution:

 

 

Problem: Kago can’t demand food or explain how it wasn’t him who shit on the bathroom floor.

Solution:

An Amazon-commissioned ‘Shop the Future’ report claims the technology could hit the shops within 10 years and experts in the US are beginning to work on the machine to allow pooches to finally be able to answer the question ‘who’s a good boy?’.

So now Kago will be able to lie with body language and a computer device.

 

Problem: alexthechick’s birthday is coming up!

Solution:

Iconic Clown Motel for sale in Tonopah

How do you start a gofundme campaign?

 

Problem: Australia has too many cows.

Solution:

 

Problem: What to do with the Caballero?

Solution:

It’ll still need emissions controls. Now I have to shop for a crapalytic converter.

 

 

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?

I only have a digital antenna for TV and I do not miss Foxnews or CNN very much, if at all. For the last few weeks I had cable I couldn’t watch any of them for more than a minute, usually less, as all they were talking about was Getting Trump!!!!! while ignoring anything that makes the Dems look like the fascist, dishonest assholes they are. If I never hear or write the words, “comey” and “russia” I’ll be happy.

I get most of my news from the tubes anyway, I’d only occasionally see something on Foxnews I didn’t know and look for it. Not watching cable news makes you more knowledgeable with every day.

 

Let’s start with a little Never Trumpers Just Trying To Help Trump!.

The Trumps and the Truth
The best defense against future revelations is radical transparency.

Even Donald Trump might agree that a major reason he won the 2016 election is because voters couldn’t abide Hillary Clinton’s legacy of scandal, deception and stonewalling. Yet on the story of Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election, Mr. Trump and his family are repeating the mistakes that doomed Mrs. Clinton.

So he’s supposed to be transparent when minitrue keeps using anonymous sources to lie about him and his peeps? He’s supposed to be transparent when minitrue screeches Treason! and attacks his peeps for meeting with people who claimed to have dirt on Hillary? I can see their problem, everybody knew the dirt on Hillary, but minitrue and Never Trumpers tried to do their best to keep that shit under wraps.

Don’t you get it, guys? Special counsel Robert Mueller and the House and Senate intelligence committees are investigating the Russia story. Everything that is potentially damaging to the Trumps will come out, one way or another. Everything. Denouncing leaks as “fake news” won’t wash as a counter-strategy beyond the President’s base, as Mr. Trump’s latest 36% approval rating shows.

The problem for Never Trumpers is that Trump’s voters do not trust them, rather, we do trust them to lie, obfuscate and do their best to sabotage the man they hate who is doing what the people they hate elected him to do. The people who hate Trump, like the Elite!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ignoramuses at the WJS, will never be swayed because he’s threatening their cozy oligarchy, the people who like Trump will not be swayed by anything minitrue does.

 

This is the type of shit that might make Trump’s supporters very fucking angry with Trump.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the Justice Department will issue new directives to increase the federal govenment’s use of civil asset forfeiture, a controversial practice that allows law enforcement to seize property from suspected criminals without charging them with a crime.

That’s Rope, Tree, Politician, some assembly required, shit.

With the No-Knock Raid, asset forfeiture when no crime has been proven, is the biggest unConstitutional shit our gov’t does.

 

Speaking of ignorant Never Trumpers, Kurt Schlichter is spot on. Again.

As the Grand Marshal of the Supreme Court assembles the posse of Bailiffs, Trumpeters and Attendants, the Learned Scribes are generating the Official Law Warrant of Justice to arrest Donald Trump Jr. for High Treason, which they will do after marching to the White House on a carpet of rose petals strewn by Fair Maidens.

Or something. Whatever. The Menscian media is in a spazz yet again.

Boy oh boy, maybe this time we can overturn the results of the election…

That asset forfeiture shit really pisses me off, but Trump’s enemies are still Constitutional America’s enemies.

This shows he wasn’t paying too much attention.

And I admit I almost didn’t think it could happen, but things have gotten stupider

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the last 10 years it’s that we’ve not even come close to plumbing the depths of the stupidity of our Elite!!!! ignoramuses. As he writes, they freak out over the most common-place things, like meeting with someone, still alive, with dirt on Hillary.

It would be political malpractice not to meet with someone who has dirt on Hillary.

And you want to meet them as soon as possible. People with dirt on Clintons tend to commit suicide or be killed in a ‘botched robbery’ where nothing is stolen except life.

Heads up to Charles Ortel, Mike Cernovich and other brave souls who keep digging for the truth about the Clinton Foundation: Make public your own suicide note before your never-to-be-proven killers get to register “SUICIDE” as the cause of your untimely death.

Send out your own ‘Suicide’ note first along the lines of: I (fill-in-the-blank) am researching the mysterious deaths of Seth Rich, John Ashe, Peter E. Smith, Klaus Eberwein and others.  I would never choose suicide as the way out of life on earth.”  It wouldn’t hurt to add, “nor am I the type to ever drop a barbell on my own neck.”  “Ditto for wandering along alone on the streets of Washington, D.C., which should be one of the safest places to be out wandering, rather than the political quagmire it really is.”

Now I have to wonder if Hillary had Arkansas state troopers kill Bill’s hookers.

Some data points.

“Former Haitian government Klaus Eberwein was found dead in a motel room earlier this week from a gunshot wound to the head. The Miami-Dade medical examiner is ruling it a suicide. (Cristina Laila, Gateway Pundit, July 15, 2017)…

“On July 3, 2016, Shawn Lucas and filmmaker Ricardo Villaba served the DNC Services Corp. and Chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz at DNC’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., in the fraud class action suit against the Democrat Party on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters.

“Shawn Lucas was found dead that week…

”And on June 22, 2016, former UN official John Ashe “accidentally” crushed his own throat and died a week before he was scheduled to testify against the Clintons and Democrat Party…

“The Chicago Tribune reported Thursday that the Minnesota death record states Smith committed suicide in a hotel room May 14.

“The investigator’s death came only 10 days after a Wall Street Journal interview by investigative reporter Shane Harris, who focused on Smith’s attempts to locate 33,000 emails deleted by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton before she surrendered her email server to federal authorities…

 

How convenient. If only our anti-American media could be assed to actually report on news instead of trying to get Democrats elected.

 

Speaking of the lying liars who fakenews, 8 years of media tongue-bathing of Obama have some salutary aspects.

And all along, over eight terrible years, our media did a whole lot more than just let Obama get away with it. They wholeheartedly colluded. They allowed Obama to persecute them through the Department of Justice and to lie to our face (remember: I just now read about it in the newspaper, the IRS did nothing wrong, you can keep your insurance). And when that wasn’t enough, the media mercilessly attacked as racist anyone who criticized the Precious and ginned up nothingburgers like Todd Akin to distract from those four dead Americans. And when even that wasn’t enough, they themselves lied and obfuscated, covered up and dissembled, and most of all they set all kinds of precedents that, in a delicious form of irony, are now driving this utterly failed institution to the edge of insanity…

And now — now! — this very same media (with the help of #NeverTrump’s forever-preening moral narcissists) is using the spear of Muh Principles to demand that those of us on the political right agree to destroy ourselves in their corrupt crusade, that we acquiesce like second-class citizens to their separate sets of rules?

Like hell.

You can tell it’s not DPUD, here that “Like hell” would be “Fuck that.”, but that’s just a semantic quibble.

Journolisters do not want to follow those precedents, but Americans are suddenly remembering what happened a few years ago. That does not bode well for either minitrue, the rest of the Dem party or the establishment pricks in the GOP.

 

GOP voters device

Get out your squeezy bulb!!!!!!

Not long after the defections of two more Senate Republicans made the GOP Obamacare replacement bill dead in the water, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell  (R-KY) announced Monday night he would let members vote for a “repeal only” amendment, if they are able to get the base health care legislation that was passed in the House onto the floor…

I can tell that’s a lie. The GOP only does machiavellian tactics against their voters.

A conundrum.

Under the plan laid out by McConnell’s statement Monday, if the Senate Republicans are willing to advance the repeal-and-replace bill passed in the House in a procedural vote, they will get a chance to vote on an amendment to replace it with a “repeal only” approach, similar to a 2015 bill Congress passed that was vetoed by President Obama. It’s unclear what the next steps would be if the vote on the amendment failed.

I can clear that up. We’ll get 

 

Speaking of which, only one of these people is being honest.

 President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called for the full, clean repeal of Obamacare in late-night statements Monday.

I’m sick of fish, my fins hurt and my squeezy bulb needs to be replaced so get back to me when it happens.

Another thing I’ve learned is that when the GOP says something is going to happen, it won’t. They like the power and opportunity for graft Obamacare gives them.

A data point on whether the GOP Congress will do what they’ve been claiming they want to do and what they were specifically elected to do.

Just six months ago, it looked like the Republican Party was about to go on a legislative blitzkrieg, shredding law after law passed by the Obama administration…

But a funny thing happened on the way to libertarian utopia. Indeed, it turns out that the GOP-controlled Congress can’t seem to pass any meaningful laws at all. Either they have forgotten how, or the divisions in their own increasingly radicalized caucus are proving too difficult to surmount. Whatever the explanation, thus far these GOP legislators are on track to be the least productive group since at least the Civil War.

They have all three branches of our gov’t and yet they cannot do what they’ve been running on for years. d

Of course, that’s obviously a minitrue/Never Trumper publication in good standing

ObamaCare would be vaporized and replaced with a nickel rattling inside an empty Mountain Dew can. Dodd-Frank was sure to be tossed aside for a transparent giveaway to Wall Street. And Republicans would pass their regressive tax reform, their perplexing border-adjustment tax, and so much more…

if you measure by the 43 laws that President Trump has adorned with his garish signature

the new Congress would work with a sub-literate tabula rasa named Donald Trump…

 

But they’re not wrong about the Do-Nothing Congress. Now, normally I’d be for Congress not doing shit, but they need to undo shit and they aren’t.

No minitrue article is complete without a blatant lie.

The most important finding they’ve uncovered is that over the past 30 years, congressional Republicans have become substantially more ideologically extreme, while congressional Democrats have moved marginally to the left but are not much different as a group than they were in 1980

Lying liars who lie. In 1980, the Dems were against gay marriage, illegal immigration, had no comment on all the various new sexual orientations and their right to use the bathroom they feel like using that day and, of course, they were for America. While the GOP has become CENTRIST!!!! (read, moved to the left).

 

It seems the Supreme Court has the same opinion I do of the assholes in Hawaii who have decided they are legislators while also having the power of the POTUSy.

The U.S. Supreme Court has given Hawaii et al until noon Tuesday to respond to the government’s motion on the reinstated travel ban. The Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a Motion to Clarify and Application for Stay after Hawaii Attorney General Douglas S. Chin judge-shopped seeking a broader definition pertaining to those permitted to enter the U.S.

That’s legalese for, “Don’t fuck with us you booger-eating moh-rons.”

 

Let’s look at more of lefties being all centrist and shit.

The evidence is clear—the American Left succeeded in lobbying the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to eliminate some of the sexual identity disorders from their Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).

It’s none of my business what you want to do with your genitalia or if you want to deny you have them or want to claim your gender is not decided by your genitalia, but don’t expect me to be involved in supporting your problems.

Let’s look at how little lefties have moved left since the 80s.

First published in 1968, DSM-II, Section 3, Part V, listed Personality Disorders and Certain other Non-psychotic Mental Disorders.  In this section, homosexuality was listed as a mental disorder.  Under pressure from the Left and gay-rights groups, the APA compromised, removing homosexuality from the DSM but replacing it with the kinder and gentler descriptor: “sexual orientation disturbance” for people “in conflict with” their sexual orientation.

In 1987 homosexuality was struck from the DSM by a majority vote of the APA members.  In 2012, transvestitism, was also eliminated from the DSM-5 (fifth edition), replaced gender identity disorder and further redefined and softened the previous personality disorder into gender dysphoria.  The change in terminology removed all implication and designation that transvestitism was a mental illness.  Dysphoria is defined as the distress a person experiences as a result of the sex and gender they were assigned at birth.

 

I’m not making a judgement call on that, I’m just noting that things have changed drastically since the 80s and for the assholes above to claim the Dems have not moved far left is not just a lie, but one that demands I not remember anything our fine media betters don’t want me to know.

Which makes this make much more sense.

“Generally, more highly educated people, who have higher incomes, consume more resources than poorly educated people, who tend to have lower incomes,” explains a UN “toolkit” for global “sustainable” education,which is still posted online at UNESCO’s website. “In this case, more education increases the threat to sustainability.”

The less you know the easier you are to control. Every slave-owner ever knew that. And if you miseducate, well, Orwell knew all about that. “He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”

 

As our universities become crazed, fascist, racist, violent places, we know why at least.

Top public universities pay administrators with jobs related to diversity initiatives an average of  $175,088 per year, substantially more than other professors and faculty members, according to a Campus Reform investigation Wednesday.

Paying 6 figures to socialist agitators is all about teh stupidity. Ever level of our educational system would be best served by firing everybody whose job title includes “diversity” or “inclusion”. That would reduce the cost of schooling by a non-insignificant amount.

That’s via David Thompson, who you should be reading. I’ve lost his blog and found it again a bunch of times over the years and have always enjoyed it.

 

That shooting in Minnesota looks very fucking bad.

The police officer who shot and killed an unarmed Australian woman in mysterious circumstances after she called 911 to report a disturbance behind her upscale Minneapolis home has been identified.

Mohamed Noor, who joined the department in March 2015, reached over and shot Justine Damond, 40, multiple times from the passenger seat of his squad car while she spoke to his colleague on the drivers side in a back alley.

I’m sure this makes me a hater, but people from places without central authority cannot understand how an America police force is supposed to act. Life isn’t cheap here the way it is in places like Somalia. You can train him for a few months but is that good enough to overcome a lifetime of experience? Too bad finding out what happened will be so hard. You cannot upset the Narrative that immigrants from shithole countries are just friends we haven’t met.

 

Nothing major, just someone else who agrees with my take on Pinochet vs commie dictators.

Hear me loud and clear!” Salvador Allende himself boasted the following month. “We will employ revolutionary violence!” (Is that so, Mr Allende? Well two can play at that game, answered Pinochet.)…

(Pinochet’s forces give communists a taste of their own medicine on 9-11-73.  Anti-communist Chileans react by burning pictures of Allende, Castro and Che Guevara…In very short order Chile became prosperous and free.)

Exactly, he saw commies about to take over his country so he did it first, killed as many commies as he could find and then left a functioning democratic republic. He also killed commies trying to recreate Cuba all over South America, stalling their plans. For that, he can never be forgiven.

That’s why Ronnie Raygun is the worst person in the history of ever for selling arms to Iran to fight Iraq and using the money to pay anti-commie fighters. He should have sold arms to Cuba and used the money to bankroll anti-Pinochet fighters.

 

I was leaning toward a sane person, or FrnakJ, writing the President Hillary Clinton blog, but now I have to rethink it. This is about John McCain, who I thought had a blood-clot, not a tumor (It is not a two-more!)

Dearest brain turmor,

I’ve never written a brain tumor before. But I think you’re great, brain tumor. I heard about you on the news. Please accept this box of chocolates as a token of my sincere admiration. Romantically, I don’t want anything from you, except to tell you: I love you, brain tumor. You’ve reduced Americans like me to tears of relief and gratitude. Rock on, my dear brain tumor. At a time when Republicans are trying to kill us all, no one is doing more important work for the cause of universal health care in America than the work that you are doing today, except maybe President Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Love, your fan,

Mary Barnes Fashan,

That’s lefty-grade hate and vitriol right there. Unless the blogger is working OT to act like our fine, tolerant, mostly-peaceful left.

 

From the Barrel of a Gun!, we learn if you’re planning on going to the Maldives you had better go soon.

 

You have until September. Make your plans accordingly. Don’t forget the bottle water.

 

Road and Track must have lost their way.

Headline

How the Hell Is the Aston Martin Valkyrie a Road-Legal Car?

That should read, “How Awesome is it that the Aston Martin Valkyrie is a Road-Legal Car?

The specs

the car would produce 1130 hp from its naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 and will weigh around 2,270 lbs. Aston Martin hasn’t released any drivetrain specs today, but the company has confirmed a lot of the coolest details of the car.

Holey moley. That’s more than 3 times the HP of my Mustang while it’s half the weight. All I can say is to make sure your toupee is glued tight before hitting that gas pedal.

My only problem with cars like that is that they cannot keep up with my Mustang on real roads. Sure on a track or a perfectly smooth, curvy road I wouldn’t even see his taillights after about 4 seconds, but in the real world all that power without any weight to hold it down makes it unstable.

There are some awesome exit/entrance ramps in the Greater Albany Metropolitan region.  I could take those ramps at 90+ even in my old Integra, my Mustang takes them even faster. My buddy brought his ZR1 Corvette up a few years ago and I took him to my favorite but he couldn’t get it above about 70 because the cracks in the road made it bounce and would have bounced right off the outside of the turn and off the road.

There’s nothing like 2 tons of Detroit steel barreling down the road. Nothing.

 

Obama lost wars we’d already won, Trump is trying to win peace we’d already lost!

Continuing his trend of pulling the United States out of longstanding agreements, President Donald Trump today signed an executive order officially pulling the US out of the Treaty of Versailles “just in case,” Duffel Blog has learned.

“As of today,” Trump said in a statement, “America will no longer participate in the draconian and economically harmful stipulations of the Treaty of Versailles — which is really close to Paris, by the way, it’s like a suburb — and will instead focus on what really won the first world war: coal.”

 

It’s nearly 100 years late, but still welcome! That’s also a dig on the Democrats War on Coal!, Trump knows who our allies are!

 

I have to wonder if Texas cats are working on taking over the world.

Armored fucking cats. Jebus.

 

Let’s end on Why I Don’t Miss DC, especially The Mixing Bowl!

At any time in the day or night you can be stuck in non-moving traffic. The ones that annoyed me most were when the accident was on the other side of the highway. If I’m behind an accident I cannot get angry (except at whatever asshole did something stupid to cause it), but when I’m down to 5 MPH because none of the assholes ahead of me had ever seen an accident or a cop car on the other side of the highway that really steams me.
