“Reality” is winning on points, but sooner or later reality will stage a comeback. Sorta like how it took a few decades before the reality that the Roman Empire had fallen was obvious to everybody.

First, I’m gonna disagree on this.

 

That’s not irony, that’s reality. Socialism always costs more than free enterprise. It’s just axiomatic.

The comment are funny too. Some people get very upset when you make fun of their religion.

 

Why didn’t we hear about this until now?

A federal grand jury provided FBI agents with subpoenas to inspect Hillary Clinton’s BlackBerry devices last year, court papers provided to Judicial Watch show.

And what happened to that issue?

The subpoenas “produced no responsive materials, as the requested data was outside the retention time utilized by those providers,”

Buried. Notice they were “outside the retention time”. In other words, the FBI worded the subpoenas so narrowly that anything not from a certain window (probably 2/1/15 3pm-2/1/15 3:05PM would be my guess) so that they could ignore what they found.

Lest we forget, the DO”J” is full of a bunch of lawless assholes and they made the FBI into Hillary’s Bitches.

 

Some people just refuse to accept reality.

Obamacare overhaul similarly fails, no honest analyst will be able to blame conservatives. Blame will belong wholly to centrist Republicans…

In every election campaign since 2010, every Republican has pledged to repeal Obamacare. Since Republicans rode that promise to a House majority that year, the House has voted more than 90 times for repeal (symbolic votes, all, under President Barack Obama). Now the Freedom Caucus has announced its support for an amended repeal bill, Republicans are closer than ever to finally delivering on their promise. It relies only on centrists to rejoin their party on this crucial issue for which the voters put them in office.

“Centrists” are just members in good standing of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party. They do not want to lose the power over us that Obamacare gives them. If they don’t control our lives, they cannot demand bribes and kickbacks on how they dole out our rights.

The GOP has lied to us. It’s much harder to keep Obamacare going than to get rid of it. So they’re busy making sure it does not go away.

Our best hope is the GOP fucks us again so Trump just undoes all the memoes, phone calls and executive orders Obama did to keep it from imploding.

 

I watched Shep for a few minutes the other day, he was talking about Venezuela and he acted as if the protestors were getting violent. He showed them in Gas Masks!!!!!!!!! but he called them, “Masks”, as in, “Protestors wearing masks!!!!!!” and then a few images of violent protestors building barricades.

Then he showed gov’t folks shooting tear gas into the crowds. Shep did not notice or mention that maybe, just fucking maybe Shep you leftist piece of shit, the protestors were wearing those “masks” because the murderous forces of the murderous dictator/nee secret policeman were murdering protestors!

Repression in Caracas on Wednesday was probably the worst in three weeks of protests. While usually satisfied with choking us but allowing us some margin of movement, this time they used enough tear gas to make us reconsider coming back, or prevent a gathering altogether.

Yesterday, Juan Pablo Pernalete Llovera, a 20-year old student, was murdered. A tear gas canister hit him in the chest as he protested in Altamira and, sadly, he arrived at Salud Chacao with no vital signs.

Nah. To the piece of shit leftists in Minitrue (hey Shep!), the forces of a socialist gov’t are ‘good’, protestors against them are ‘bad’.

When they don’t ignore it. Venezuela is exploding and it was blatantly obvious that it was going to happen to everyone except our Elites!, cuz they’re idiots.

 

Mister We Could Use A Man Like Phillip Of Macedon Again!

Protesters have stormed the parliament of the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia, and assaulted the leader of the Social Democrats in a bid to stop the formation of a new government.

See, they’re thinking.

I wonder how long until that happens here and how Minitrue will blame me when it’s masked leftists doing it. Most righties will just ignore them. There is no rule of law, why pretend we still have it and act as if Congress is important? Only our imperial judiciary and Trump matter right now. Congress has spent the last decades abdicating their responsibilities, ever since Clinton’s impeachment when they realized the media was more powerful.

 

Okay, I don’t know French attitudes, but this makes me laugh. Macron is the far leftist left in the race against the FAR RIGHT HATER!!!!! LePen.

 

“In the next three months after I am elected, there will be a decision on Poland,” Macron told reporters of several regional French newspapers including Ouest-France. “You cannot have a European Union which argues over every single decimal place on the issue of budgets with each country, and which, when you have an EU member which acts like Poland or Hungary on issues linked to universities and learning, or refugees, or fundamental values, decides to do nothing.”
Macron’s comment indicates the staunchly pro-EU candidate, who promises to reassert France’s leading position within the bloc and play an integral role in shaping its future, will actively enforce the bloc’s democratic liberal values at a time when EU leaders are faced with reshaping and shoring up solidarity within the union pre-Brexit.

That’s probably a winner, the EU was supposed to be a way for France to rule Europe, they can’t allow them lowlife Poles and Hungarians to think they control their countries!

Recall, the Hungarians are not allowing Muslim refugees in their country. They even respond to violence with violence! All right thinking people know that you don’t counter violence with violence! You figure out how you angered the poor-downtrodden people and appease them. Unless they’re not an approved lefty group, then you crush them.

 

Okay, I’d say this is a loser.

The National Front’s history of anti-Semitism intruded on the French election campaign again on Friday as polls suggested front-runner Emmanuel Macron’s 20-point lead may be narrowing a touch.

Marine Le Pen’s far-right party forced acting president Jean-Francois Jalkh to step aside after comments from 17 years ago questioning the Holocaust resurfaced in the French media,

If there’s one thing most French don’t care about it’s who hates the people from That Shitty Little Country. It is pretty funny that the lefties who hate Jews as much as most Arabs are acting all, “Oooh, look at the anti-Semitism!”

 

Speaking of Nazis, I think I found the original maker of Billy Bier.

once was an actual Hitler of shithead relatives — and no, not that one, either. In a quirky twist of fate, the Universe saddled even that goose-stepping genocidal maniac with a slimy, opportunistic, clingy black sheep to ruin his Christmases: Adolf’s “loathsome nephew,” Willy Hitler…

On the strength of his last name alone, Willy gained access to all the parties, women, and cocktail shrimp Berlin had to offer. It was wild. Gaggles of Hitler groupies lined up for the chance to get their Aryan mitts on Willy’s little willy. On the family side, however, things weren’t going too great. Dissatisfied with his crappy job at the bank, Willy asked Uncle Adolf to help him get a better grip on those evil coattails of his. It was around this time that the fuhrer starting referring to Willy as “my loathsome nephew” and accusing him of trying to “climb on my back.”

Sounds like a cross between Billy Carter and Roger Clinton.

 

This is fucked up. I’m not sure who the players are, I do know the TWP are white nationalists but I don’t know anything else about them and I’m not sure if Anti-fa are involved or just mentioned later on. Since the organizers for the rally are all Dems, I’m gonna guess they’re not anti-fascist, just anti-other-people’s-fascists. Like in Iraq how Sunnis liked Sunni terrorists and Shiites liked Shiite terrorists.

Organizers began planning the Rally for Equality and American Values at the University of Pikeville back in February, almost as soon as the Traditionalist Worker Party announced its intention to converge on Pikeville for a rally.

In a statement posted to the group’s Facebook event page shortly before 4:30 today, organizer Ariana Velasquez said organizers unanimously decided to postpone the event, after consulting with law enforcement, public officials and university administration.

In the statement, she said “unforeseen credible threats” forced the decision to cancel in order to protect the safety of participants.

I do have high hopes for this though.

“The TWP has become expert in obeying the letter of the law while getting as close as possible to inciting violence. The ARA and ANTIFA will stand nose to nose with the TWP in an attempt to shout them down. Unfortunately, they may also be planning a more violent conflict.

Now if we could just get the Westoro Baptist FreakShow to get involved we could have some guilt-free violence to watch. Watching nazis beat fascists is hilarious.

 

Has anybody heard about this?

An American paramedic working with a security watchdog in eastern Ukraine has been killed after the vehicle he was in drove over a mine.

The US citizen, who has not been named, was part of a patrol involved in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s (OSCE) Special Monitoring mission in the country.

Two other monitors, a German and a Czech, were injured in the blast, near Luhansk. It has led US officials to call for a ‘full, transparent investigation’.

 

Why haven’t we heard of an American being killed by Tsar Putin I’s cossacks?

But since signing deal the sides appear stuck in a stalemate broken periodically by sharp resurgences of fighting that Kiev and the Kremlin accuse each other of instigating.

Tillerson told Poroshenko that although Washington wanted better ties with Moscow, ‘Russia´s actions in eastern Ukraine remain an obstacle’.

On Monday Russia’s deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, also called for an investigation to be conducted into the explosion.

Oh, the Russians are going to investigate!

We could lend them some of our crack FBI agents from the Hillary Task Force!!!!, they’re good at covering up crimes.

 

Canada is getting a look at the reality that is their place in the world.

Nobody’s going to invade Canada unless they’re already at war with us, but Canada cannot project power and Russia wants the oil under Arctic ice that Canada wants.

Guess who’s most likely going to get it?

Russia unveils its newest Arctic base

Russia has unveiled a new military base as part of its buildup in the Arctic region, and has provided a tour — albeit a virtual one on your computer.

The tsar willing to go to war to get it. Canada surely isn’t.

Funny, what with their problems with illegal immigration and now a warlike neighbor, they could use a Trump. But they have a Kelso.

 

The reality of the state of politics in America.

A two-bit political gadfly named Thomas Lopez-Pierre has been running for City Council on an outrageous platform that calls for stopping “greedy Jewish landlords” from committing “ethnic cleansing” against blacks.

Yawn. Typical Democrat so far.

as Jewish groups and leaders demanded he be booted out of the Democratic Party.

Wait, why? Isn’t that the official Democrat Party Platform? Black Lives Matter, not zionist lives.

Here’s where I wonder if he’s planning on joining the GOP.

In the midst of this firestorm a GoFundMe called “Stop Thomas Lopez-Pierre Hate Campaign” suddenly popped up and was so successful, it raised $5,781.

But anyone who donated hoping to actually stop Lopez-Pierre is going to be sorely disappointed — because the page was created by the candidate himself to scam money from his foes.

“I call it bait and switch,” Lopez-Pierre actually bragged to The Post.

“I intend to use the money to pay for my marketing expenses. The people who are doing this [donating] oppose me. I thank them for their support.”

How is that different from winning election after election and raking in $millions in donations precisely to repeal Obamacare and then not repealing Obamacare? How about how they boned us on illegal immigration?

So a Dem platform with GOP tactics. A Centrist!

 

I’m all for this.

And now the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has examined what happens to the data that’s collected from students using technology in the classroom. They released the results of an extensive survey covering students in grades K-12.

What they found was that little work has been done to protect the privacy of the student information that is collected from both the classroom and from using the online software the schools issue for use at home on the students’ own devices. They found that while many school districts have embraced technology and all of the benefits it can bring to the schools and students, often little thought has been given to one of the unintended consequences of this: the students’ privacy.

School is for learning. Let them learn what their betters think of them. Right now, they seem to think our fine betters give a shit about them. That’s a dangerous belief. Our betters only care about our voting for them, sending them money and shutting the fuck up.

 

Speaking of schools and learning, is Duke actually going to stop going all in on social justice and SCIENCE!!!!!! and actually do some science?

We have another study from Duke University that shows groundwater isn’t being polluted by fracking, despite the cries from the environmentalists that the process, which is used to tap into natural gas resources. It’s been the crux of their narrative against this sector of the economy that’s rapidly growing throughout the country. The study was three years in the making, peer reviewed, and was recently published in the European journal Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta.

 

Heretics! Burn them! They do have to state the obvious to try to keep up their SCIENCE!!!!!!!!!!! cred.

They did say that surface water might be impacted due to spills:

So what you’re saying is that spilling oil on the ground means there will be oil on the ground and it could run into waterways that go through the ground? The deuce you say!

 

Macauley Culkins parents are the scum of the Earth and should be jailed, at least, for what they did to their kid.

If, like so many pop fans, you have always yearned to see a three-minute music video that brings together Bill Clinton, Garfield’s cartoon owner Jon Arbuckle and a Viagra-taking George Washington wearing a virtual reality headset, then your agonizing wait is finally over…

The video features the founding father apparently pleasuring himself to the vision of Kurt Cobain—played by Macaulay Culkin—being whipped, nailed to a cross and declared “King of the Cucks.”

 

Poor bastid. First his parents took all his money and then they sold him to Michael Jackson. So sad.

 

Road Trip?

Sheela-na-gigs are carvings of naked, old women exposing an exaggerated vulva.

More than 110 Sheela-na-gigs have been found in Ireland…

Heritage Ireland mapped the location of every sculpture in the country using National Monument data.

Michael Starrett, Heritage Council Chief Executive, said: ‘HeritageMaps.ie a fantastic tool for learning, discussion and interpretation, making cultural data available to everyone.

Vulvoyage!

 

At least, unlike the Mona Lisa, we know why she’s smiling.

 

Sometimes things that seem so brilliant are the opposite.

Police say an Ohio man called 911 to request a police dog to help track down heroin allegedly stolen from him.

That epitomizes the sentiment most people have had, “It seemed like a good idea at the time!”

 

I did this with a 72 Chevelle Malibu and a dumpster instead of a bicycle and a wall.

The girl bending over into her car turned around just as I hit the dumpster at about 5mph. I didn’t get her number.

So where are we?

Not in a good place.

The State Religion has taken over in California.

The Democrat Attorney General Xavier Becerra of California has invented a new crime: Performing Undercover Video Journalism While Not a Democrat.

Of course, he didn’t call it that. Nor did his predecessor, now U.S. Senator Kamala Harris,(emphasis me V) when she launched an investigation of the undercover video operation to expose alleged fetal body part sales by Planned Parenthood.

That investigation resulted in 15 felony charges that were just announced, as we covered the other day, California’s AG Charges Undercover Reporters Who Exposed Planned Parenthood Baby Part Selling.

For the most part, the mainstream media that uses similar undercover video tactics — which is how 60 Minutes made its name…

Some news outlets, like the LA Times and the Wall Street Journal are covering it, and Mother Jones, but nobody else seems to be very interested in this example of  using the state to go after social enemies (not political).

The NY Times ‘covers’ the story.

Like this defense of Planned Parenthood/explaining away any stupid implications that 15 felonies was a problem.

They claimed to have gathered evidence that abortion providers and others were selling tissue from aborted fetuses for profit, which is illegal, but subsequent investigations failed to find evidence of that.

You know, except they did. The de rigeur, “Deceptively Edited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Critics said Mr. Daleiden and Ms. Merritt, who were working for the Center for Medical Progress, an anti-abortion group that was previously obscure, had deceptively edited the videos and misrepresented what they showed.

You don’t need to see the vids, you see, they were deceptively edited! So when the PP person said, “We’re going to sell you body parts.” it obviously does not prove they were going to sell body parts. So there.

Are there first amendment concerns?

The defendants have said they were acting as journalists, but even if a court accepts that argument, it may not matter in this case.

They’re not journalists! Journalists can do things others can’t. It says so right there in the commerce cl…first amendment!

Eavesdropping laws apply to journalists, too. And while the activists may claim a right of free speech or free press to publish the videos, the charges are about collection, not publication.

When 60 Minutes is arrested for the same thing, I look forward to the same response.

Sorry, we all know 60 Minutes peeps will not fall afoul of the law because they only go after the left’s enemies and the NY Times would freak the fuck out if whoever’s on 60 Minutes these days were actually arrested.

This story has the same script, no sense quoting it.

Here we have the Secret Evidence the Hoi Polloi Cannot See!

A federal appeals court on Wednesday barred the release of videos made by an anti-abortion group whose leaders are facing felony charges in California accusing them of recording people without permission in violation of state law.

They don’t have a problem with that.

“There’s no denying that the smear campaign launched by the defendants has put abortion providers at risk, and we are grateful that the Ninth Circuit affirmed our preliminary injunction,” said Vicki Saporta, National Abortion Federation president and CEO.

We needed a quote from the National Abortion Federation president and CEO to explain that this was wrong!

Oh, and there’s a National Abortion Federation. With a president and CEO. That’s sorta horrific.

I didn’t know this, but it’s fucking funny.

Daleiden and Merritt had been indicted in Texas, but all of the charges were dropped as prosecutors said a grand jury had overstepped its authority. The grand jury had been convened to investigate Planned Parenthood, but after finding no wrongdoing it indicted Daleiden and Merritt instead.

Okay then.  These people selling pieces of dead babies are okay but the ones showing it are enemies of the state.

I was going to look at other news “agencies” but really, at this point what difference does it make? They’re not going to cover this. It’s a regional issue and not for national consumption.

Now let’s look at this video of a fireman in West Bumfuck saving a kitten!

 

Coupla puppy blender links.

Tillerson and Turkey disagree on strategery in Syria.

Washington and Ankara disagree sharply over how to wage war against Islamic State militants in Syria, with the U.S. backing Kurdish militias whom the Turks disdain as terrorists.

Tillerson, dealing in the world of international oil dealings, probably likes the Kurds more than anybody else he’s had to deal with so I doubt Turkey’s problems with someone they’d like to Armenian are going to affect him all that much.

Which means that Tillerson could get with Russia to handle Turkey to cut down on terrorists in the area, but our fine media betters attack on whatever they’re saying Russia did today will make that harder.

Yay Minitrue! From ‘reporting’ on Abu Ghraib every day for a year to accusing Russia of interfering with our election, Minitrue surely knows how to hurt America for the sin of not electing Democrats.

 

Speaking of the bullshit Russia deal and punishing America, the Senate is uninterested in getting the story.

A senior congressional official with direct knowledge said Flynn’s lawyer was told it was “wildly preliminary” and that immunity was “not on the table” at the moment. A second source said the committee communicated that it is “not receptive” to Flynn’s request “at this time.”

I usually try to ignore what’s “going to happen”, but this feels right.

CNN has been non-stop Flynn for months, this gives our fine media betters a chance to continue their attacks on Trump. The We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party is not going to give up that club easily.

 

More Russia.

Obama administration officials were so concerned about what would happen to key classified documents related to the Russia probe once President Trump took office that they created a list of document serial numbers to give to senior members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, a former Obama official told NBC News.

The official said that after the list of documents related to the probe into Russian interference in the U.S. election was created in early January, he hand-carried it to the committee members. The numbers themselves were not classified, said the official.

You see, it was so important that they didn’t start any investigations, they just planted bombs to keep Trump fighting this dishonest idiocy instead of presidentin’.

Obama and his media tools were screeching about Russia long before January, but they compiled this just in time for the change of admin.

There was a lot of that going around.

 

Not really linking this for anything except the horrifying aspect of the headline.

Could Donald Trump Seize
The U.S. Political Center?
Stranger Things Happened

 

The “Political Center” in America is the bastion of the We’re Better And Smarter Than Your Party that gives bi-partisan cover for leftist power grabs.

The people who are busily not repealing Obamacare or building a wall.

 

Okay, I can see why Ann Coulter would want to do this, but what the fuck is Berkeley thinking?

The planned visit by firebrand conservative commentator Ann Coulter to the University of California, Berkeley has officials and organizers worrying about a repeat of the rioting which greeted Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos.

So long as they get no federal funds to rebuild, I’m okay with it. It’s like an episode of The Purge except with the hilarity of lefties destroying their own property as the police watch. That’s darn funny.

 

This Is NYC!

Headline!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cops find insane stockpile of weapons while hunting for rape suspect

I had to click to see this “insane stockpile.”

Cops found a stockpile of weapons that included four pistols, three long-guns,

I call that, ‘My living room’. I usually bring more than that to the desert to shoot.

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

I’m a little disappointed in this guy.

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

Our betters are just sick of our shit.

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

It’s the Doc Ock dating device!!!

Them getting themmer.

Us.

The new right wing does more than just get petty when the going gets rough. We appropriate. When you attack us, we turn it into a slogan. Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” made us into The Deplorables. Her “fake news” now defines all the news that lies about us. We even got her freaking out about a green frog. Since then, we’ve convinced them that everything from an “OK” gesture to a bobbing purple dove to a glass of milk is a secret Nazi code. It’s so easy to turn them into a dizzy Chihuahua frantically chasing his own tail that it’s almost cruel—almost.

They’re tools and we’re a tool using species, it’s a perfect match!

 

Them acting Themmer

Huntington Beach Pro-Trump March Turns Into Attack on Anti-Trump Protesters

So… Some Trump supporters just started attacking peaceful people?

The anti-Trump protester, dressed in all black and wearing a mask, attacked an organizer of the event, Jennifer Sterling, and other members of the march with the irritant, causing a group of marchers to tackle the masked man, punching and kicking him.

 

Ahh, so the anti-Trump folks were “mostly peaceful” Anti-fa blackshirts who got their asses so deservedly kicked.

People aren’t going to let our fine, mostly-peaceful, fascist countrymen beat us anymore. People are fighting back. Generation Snowflake is going to find out that beating the people they hate is not cost-free.

 

There’s also been a spate of us getting themmer.

Let’s accept that Paul Ryan’s healthcare bill wasn’t optimal.

Since it was Obamacare with some lipstick, yeah, we’ll go with “wasn’t optimal”, sounds so much better than “Fuck you people who voted for us to get rid of Obamacare”.

If the Congressional Budget Office was anywhere close to correct in its original estimations,

Okay, that’s utterly stupid. The CBO is only useful for pushing lefty legislation or against conservative legislation.

But yes, it’s true, it wasn’t full repeal.

I’ll translate: “But yes it’s true, the GOP was saying Fuck You Base!”

Indeed, as long as insurance companies are required to cover pre-existing conditions, government healthcare is with us, and the bill would not have changed that.

At least you’re admitting, even as you try to deny it, that the GOP was not keeping their campaign promise of getting rid of Obamacare. This would have been worse than no bill.

This bit makes me laugh.

Let’s also forget about any four-dimensional chess conspiracy theories.

It looks to me as if he’s trying to play 9-dimensional chess by passing bills that eventually get the gov’t out of all aspects of my life.

All this said, I simply feel that letting the bill die was such a huge mistake politically that it would have been worth eating the bill’s flaws — trying to fix them in the Senate — and living to fight another day.

See?

But I do care very much about the country and about what policies Trump institutes and leaves behind: the tax reform, regulation cutbacks, solid judge picks, and stronger foreign policy that seem to be a real and legitimate part of his agenda.

I’m a Conservative Dammmit!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m a PATRIOT!!!!!! And I’m for REGULATION CUTBACKS!!!!!! DAMMMITTT!!!!! But let’s leave some of that gov’t regulation in one of the most important aspects of our lives! Healthcare Needs The Gov’t To Be In Charge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CUZ IT’S CONSERVATIVE!!!!!!!

So that said, if the president now finds himself humiliated by the conservative leadership… if the president now finds himself unable to work with Republicans on the Hill…

What do the two have to do with each other? Republicans on the Hill are not led by any conservative leadership, they shit on the conservative leadership.

I fear this may be the end result of the failure of the healthcare bill: a Washington in which Donald Trump can find more love on the left than on the right, more chance of winning through leftism than through conservatism.

The Moderate Wing of the GOP (the GOP wing of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party) is always pushing the same thing, surrender. The GOP is far more On The Left than On The Right. Saying anything else is just not paying attention.

If only conservatives would get over that whole, “Limited gov’t thing” we could just get stuff done!

 

Let’s look at what Minitrue’s doing.

This has to kill this minitrue outlet in good standing.

Trump was right after all about the Obama administration wiretaps

Even as most of the media is still pushing “Unsubstantiated claims!!!!!!” bullshit.

It’s still minitrue, so they have to write this

Of course, the original tweets were poorly worded and inappropriate as a way for a president to raise this issue. Moreover, the inadvertent surveillance is rightfully distinguished from the original suggestion of a targeting of Trump.

It’s funny, the guy spent a paragraph or two explaining that “wiretapping” was a broader statement than just “taps on a wire” yet then he writes “poorly worded”. They’re still on “inapropriate” and yet, if Trump had not tweeted that, we would not be discussing Obama’s felonious/near treasonous listening in a political opponent.

In the 70s, a POTUS wiretapped his political opponents and the media got him to resign over the cover-up.

In the 10s, a POTUS wiretapped his political opponents and the media is trying to get the wiretappee to resign by covering up the crime.

It’s a funny old world.

 

More reports of Obama wiretapping Trump.

A House intelligence committee investigation took a dramatic shift this week after newly disclosed intelligence reports suggested the Obama administration improperly gathered and disseminated secret electronic communications from President Trump and his transition team prior to inauguration.

But Trump hates him some (insert current fakenewsers’ lie here)

 

Too bad the CDC and the NIH are too busy worrying about global worming and my guns to do anything about this work on sepsis.

He wants there to be a comprehensive study, and he said that Stanford University has expressed some interest. But he said it will be difficult to fund because it uses drugs that have been on the market for decades: “We are curing it for $60. No one will make any money off it.”

If the gov’t is gonna get into science, that’s what they should be doing but no, they’re too busy asking about my guns and worrying about the (made-up) plagues their god is wreaking on our world.

 

 

Other people are noticing 

I wonder if he was one of those how was slapping his fins and honking his horn for all the stinky fish they threw at our faces.

 

Eh, since I’m twitting, I’m might as well keep being a twit.

Holy Moly! Foghorn Leghorn must be on freaking steroids! The chicken hawk’s gonna need a bigger dog!

 

Now I don’t like Cat Videos very much, but this one just made me laugh.

 

 

I could see a new sport, you’d just have to used a well-waxed floor instead of ice. Cats don’t like cold.

 

And everything new is still getting pretty fucking old.

I’m ignoring The Election Was Hacked By Russia For Trump!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! shit, that’s getting very old.

I’m also ignoring, “Trump Lied About Wiretapping!!!!!!!!! Well, sure, his peeps were listened in on, but it was INADVERTENT!!!!! and not a Wiretap!”

Because the blatant and open dishonesty is just too much to take in. I’m mostly wondering how much of America is looking at all the media’s contortions (I’m looking at you Foxnews) to try to make Trump look like the liar by lying about him.

The only question I have is what they’re calling Journolist these days. I do know the Journolist Words Of The Day were “inadvertent” and “incidental”.

 

I hit “Post” and then pulled it back because I forgot this.

This is getting old. My bougainvillea is still watching me.

 

I’m just trying to read my dam book and this sucker keeps staring at me!

 

Now this shit is getting pretty old.

Terrorist Worked Alone!!!!!!!

British Prime Minister,Theresa May, speaking in the House of Commons, said that the man who carried out Wednesday’s terrorist attack in Westminster “acted alone.”...

Police investigating the crime have now made eight arrests in raids in Birmingham and London:“The inquiries in Birmingham, London and other parts of the country are continuing. It is still our belief, which continues to be borne out by our investigation, that this attacker acted alone and was inspired by international terrorism.

So he worked alone with these people spread across Akbar Britain and the rest of the world.

That word “alone” apparently has changed its meaning in the 21st century, when applied to Islamic terrorists.

 

Hypocritical, Intolerant Canucks are getting very fucking old.

Officials in the Manitoba border town of Emerson say some residents are starting to get a little annoyed with how asylum-seekers are behaving when they arrive in the community.

Reeve Greg Janzen says nine or more people who illegally crossed the border walked into town early Tuesday morning.

He tells CTV Winnipeg that one group of three people started ringing doorbells at 4 a.m. at a house in town, looking for help.

He says on Sunday morning, another group of six was knocking on doors and looking into a window, characterizing the behaviour as “a little rude.”

You should be more tolerant and welcoming! They’re just trying to make a better life for themselves and their country they’re entering illegally!

I do love the title, “Reeve”, it always reminds me of Dan Aykroyd

Dickface!

 

Tsarism! It’s not old, it’s new!

Nikolai Gorokhov, a lawyer representing the family of a Russian whistleblower, was reportedly thrown out of the fourth floor of his Moscow apartment building on Tuesday — a day before the 53-year-old was due to appear in court regarding a contentious corruption case.

Obama has to be jealous, he had all that picky Rule of Law shit to get around, murdering whistleblowers is tougher here. Even Clintons have to be careful about that.

 

The battle for Mosul is going as expected. The terrorists are hiding among civilians courting civilian casualties is very old, so why are we bombing from on high? What could go wrong!

The US-led coalition fighting the Islamic State group says it is investigating reports of an airstrike in a western Mosul neighborhood that allegedly left more than 100 civilians dead.

Residents of the Iraqi city’s neighborhood known as Mosul Jidideh told an Associated Press team at the scene that scores of residents are believed to have been killed by a pair of airstrikes that hit a cluster of homes in the area earlier this month.

Oh.

 

Let’s do some slimy American politician news.

Where are we in our revolt?

Our betters surely think it’s getting old.

I don’t think the GOP is going to manage that. It’s been far too obvious that our fine GOP betters are not interested in getting rid of Obamacare so blaming the people who are trying to save us from the gov’t controlling our entire lives is a tough sell.

 

But Trump doesn’t need Congress to even act.

Small businesses are pleading the Trump administration to delay an onerous Obama-era regulation requiring calorie labeling on menus, violations of which can carry jail time for mislabeling food.

Jail Time for mislabeling food? Jebus.

But that’s not the point.

All Trump has to do is just Executively Order Obamacare away.

Obama had to keep writing memos, orders and calling bureaucrats to get it to work. If Trump just undoes all that illegal changing of a law, it would go away.

Look at how much they illegally delayed to help Dems get elected, or at least, get Obama re-elected

He could also just give waivers to all of America.

That fucking law was all about stupidity and unConstitutionality, getting rid of it should be easy. Hell, I’d love to see the Supreme Court explain how Obama giving waivers to the politically connected is fine but Trump giving waivers to the non-politically connected is verboten!

 

Now, there are places with more corrupt pols, but there are none with pols any slimier and more open about their corruption and sliminess than NY pols. What’s funny is that the NY Post seems to be trying to pretend this very old corruption is all new and shit.

Will Any Scandal  put an end to NY pols’ shadowy-spending ways? asks the NY Post.

Kudos to Citizens Union for pointing out that Gov. Cuomo’s budget plan includes $13.8 billion in shadowy spending — nearly a tenth of the total $152.3 billion plan.

The watchdog group’s “Spending in the Shadows” report flags outlays that face little or no public scrutiny — including for some programs that resemble the Buffalo Billion projects that now have several Cuomo ex-associates facing federal corruption charges, and/or the funds key to the corruption that earned ex-Assembly Speaker Shelly Silver his long federal prison sentence.

The hallmark of all NY budgets

The budget includes $9.5 billion in “economic development” funds, which face minimal oversight and are notorious for abuse.

 

Slush funds for paying off connected contributors are required. Notorious for abuse is NY Speak for “Business as Usual”.

With this Evergreen Quote!!!!!!

Yes, both chambers of the Legislature have ideas for greater transparency in (Cuomo-controlled) economic-development spending. The gov, meanwhile, has proposals for more sunlight on the lawmakers’ pork.

Arf Arf Arf!!!! Slap! Slap! Slap! Honk! Honk! Honk!

They’re GOING TO DO SOMETHING!!!!!! THEY’RE GETTING HARUMPHS FROM ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To answer the original question, No, it won’t. We’ve been watching their corrupt negotiations going on in the pages of the NY Times and the Albany Times Useless for decades and the only thing that’s changed is the names.

 

Chicago might be more corrupt, but since a Clintonista took power, they’re chasing NY’s sliminess.

This article is hilarious in its obtusity. As if everything old is suddenly new.

A rock has been turned over in Chicago, and all kinds of revelations are scattering out.

Bill Ruthhart and Hal Dardick report in the Chicago Tribune:

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s personal email accounts

What is it with Clintonistas and email?

have served as a private avenue of influence where executives and investors sought favorable action from City Hall,

The deuce you say! You mean a Chicago pol sells infuence?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

raising questions about whether some of the messages crossed the line into lobbying and violated the city’s ethics law, the Chicago Tribune has found.

Wait, Chicago has ethics laws?

Now that’s something new!

Wait, no it isn’t. That’s the price vice pays to fool the idiots who believe what people say instead of what they do.

 

Speaking of Clintonistas, let’s see what’s going on in Corruptocrat Land.

 

I bet a dollar it’s titled, “All About Sex! How The GOP Held A Nation Hostage!”

The scripted anthology series will focus on US Presidents, according to an announcement by the channel. One of the first projects in development? The 1998 to 1999 impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton, covering his affair with Monica Lewinsky, how the Clinton family dealt with the fallout, and the secret back-channel negotiations between the White House and Congress.

We all know the bad guy, Newt.

 

This should be titled “Wishful Thinking“.

The studious interest in Chelsea’s next move is understandable coming from the right, which has always hated the Clintons and no doubt welcomes the distraction Chelsea offers from the president’s dismal approval ratings and damning intelligence hearings. Bill, Hillary and Chelsea have long been enthusiasm-boosters for the Republicans, and they’re reluctant to give them up.

 

I’m a Clinton-Hater from way back but the most I can work up for that sad, colorless, drab scion is amused contempt. Note to the LA Times, it’s Democrats who are pushing her. It’s conservatives who are pointing and laughing. It’s GOP establishment pricks who are looking forward to another Clinton to fundraise on, it’s their comfort zone.

But the laser-focused Chelsea vitriol is perplexing when it comes from the left. Shouldn’t such first-daughter hatred be reserved for Ivanka? Wouldn’t their attention be better spent on potential 2018 and 2020 candidates who have already declared their interest? Aren’t there bigger battles to fight — and aren’t they glad that such a prominent Democratic figure is registering her dissent with the current administration?

Nobody who hasn’t been forced to work with her cares enough about her to hate her.

 

Let’s end on one of my pet peeves, where everything old is new, then old, then new, then old, then new, then…..

Butter, eggs, salt, bacon, coffee, olive oil and more have been good for you, bad for you, good for you, bad for you, good for you, bad for you…

Like eggs, which many people had virtually banished from their diets, cheese is well on its way to being rehabilitated as a “good” nutrient rich food. Along with a slew of other nutrition nonsense we’ve been fed constantly over the years by “experts” and government agencies doing their bidding this too will end up being completely debunked. Butter? Coconut oil? Red meat? None of them are actually “bad” for you at all.

 

That’s old and yet people keep ‘noticing’ it as if it’s all new.

Eat stinky cheeses, butter, olive oil, salt and eggs, they’re better for you than the processed crap they make instead.

And don’t forget the bacon!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, why do “nutritionists” keep telling us all the food for breakfast is bad for us?

 

I think they just hate America.

 

I just cannot keep watching the news. We had months of reports of ‘leaked transcripts of wiretapping” that attempted to harm Trump, which immediately switched to “no proof of wiretapping!” as soon as that could harm Trump.

I’m not interested. At this point, I’m only wondering how the GOP is going to try to explain being feckless assholes who refuse to do anything they’ve been specifically elected to do. Like get the gov’t out of healthcare, secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws.

But since the ‘news’ is out, let’s get some NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Heavy on vids and pics.

First, some real news.

Geez, Trump is so fascist and hatist, mere proximity has turned Canada into a bunch of fascist haters!

Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday.

I do wonder how they reconcile that stance and their, Trump is a racist hater for wanting the same thing, stance. You know they’re probably mad at America over it, They’re America’s Illegal Aliens!

 

If you’re going to make fun of Trump, this is how to do it. Zapp Brannigan doing Trump quotes.

Perfect and hilarious. While we’ve never seen them in the same room together, I’ve never seen Trump wear velour. But then, the 70s were sort of a blur and that’s when he would have worn one.

We all have clothes from the 70s we’d like to forget.

 

Via this dude, we see that erstwhile QB Colin Kapernick had some luck on the free agent market!

We know he can scramble and throw a bomb. I’m not sure how he’d do against America’s defensive line, but I’d like to see!

 

Relatedly, via the Jawas, we see this bit of hilarity.

 

Boycott us? No! Boycott You!

Oh, and go fuck yourself. Especially considering the use of “repressive”, just cuz you’re trying to delegitimize their nation doesn’t mean they should be rude!

 

This Amtrack train came into the station through a snow bank, it’s sorta cool, but notice all the people filming this with their phones. Not a one of them realizes that what they’re filming could affect them in any way until it’s far too late. They’re just swept aside. I wonder how badly they, including our intrepid reporter, were injured.

Situational awareness, it’s not just for buying drugs in shitty neighborhoods you know.

 

Now, I could understand padded knees, but would someone explain these mom-jeans to me?

No wait, don’t. I’m sure it’s stupid and I’ve learned enough stupid things for the day.

 

 

US Women’s Hockey Boycotting Championships Over Equal Pay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven’t actually watched women’s hockey but if it’s as riveting as women’s basketball, I’m gonna assume there’s a reason for the disparity in pay.

 

Now this story is a perfect example of the problem with journalism today.

Some guy rammed his car into a tree, repeatedly. Here’s the problem.

Headline

Police: Man charged after crashing car into tree repeatedly ‘to prove a point’

Story

A local man is facing charges after police said he repeatedly drove a car into a tree on his property in order to “prove a point” to another resident at the address…

Bailey told officers that he had done so “to try and prove a point”…

he was ramming the car into a tree to prove a point…

 

Who: Local Man, What: Ram car into tree, Where: Pawcuatuck, When, 3pm for half an hour, How: By driving his car

They got the sensational stuff out of the way, tried to make him look like a dumb redneck, but nowhere do they tell us the important “Why”.

Not once do they mention the point he was trying to prove.

They make a point of telling us 4 times that he was attempting to prove a point, but they don’t mention the point or if he proved it!

Just shoddy journalism. How can we know if the point was worth it?

I also don’t see why the police were involved, he was on his own property destroying his own stuff, that’s none of their business.

But then, everything is now the govt’s business anymore it seems.

Two pretty funny and very stupid articles from Conservative Thinkers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! extraordinaire.

Let’s start with Peggy Noonan, cuz her writing has become so shallow it doesn’t take long to ridicule.

Reach Across the Aisle, Mr. President

When Democrats win elections, Republicans need to reach across the aisle. When Republicans win elections, Republicans need to reach across the aisle. When Trump wins an election in spite of everything people like Peggy Noonan could do, Republicans need to reach across the aisle.

With this Deep Thought!!!!!!!!!!

The priorities should be jobs, growth, social cohesion and an atmosphere, in Washington, of constructiveness.

Well, he appears to be doing okay on jobs and growth in his first two months.

Social cohesion is not a priority for gov’t. Destroying it has been the method our fine political betters have used to gain political power though.

As for ‘constructiveness’ in DC, how about the fucking Democrats try working with someone else? How about that Peggy?

Nope, conservatives need to bend their principles because we’re all disappointing Peggy.

 

Next up, Rich Lowry, you can tell he’s super conservative cuz he writes at Politico. How The GOP Crack-Up Happens!!!!!

That relationship is awkward and tenuous. It is an uneasy accommodation between a GOP Congress that would find a more natural partner in a President Rubio, Cruz or Bush, and a President Trump who would, presumably, be happier to work with Speaker Dave Brat — the populist congressman from Virginia — than with Speaker Paul Ryan.

Exactly. He’s forced to work with Establishment Pricks who are refusing to reduce any of their power.

This is a product of how the Republican sweep of 2016 was won on separate tracks. Trump tore up many Republican orthodoxies and went out and found a different way to unlock the electoral map, winning in the industrial Midwest. Congressional Republicans more or less stuck with the usual script, kept Trump at arm’s length, and held their majorities in the House and the Senate.

Yeah. They were elected to reverse what the Dems have been doing, most especially in terms of illegal immigration and Obamacare. But Thoughtful Conservatives Everywhere are telling us whoa, it’s not that simple! You can’t just do what the stupid voters want, that way lies madness!

And there was no off-the-shelf Trump legislation that Congress could begin on immediately.

You know, except reintroducing one of the previous 10 Obamacare repeal bills, building a wall, making Hillary Clinton ambassador to Libya…

The congressional priorities are Obamacare repeal and tax reform, both of which could easily have been the first-year agenda items of the aforementioned hypothetical Presidents Bush, Rubio, or Cruz.

Okay, that’s funny. Sure Republicans have been talking about that, but they’ve been studiously avoiding it.

And what huge issue is good old Rich avoiding? Do a ctrl-F and try to find “illegal” or even “immigration” and you’ll find that Rich did not discuss this issue that was front and center in Trump’s campaign. You might also call it his signature issue.

But that is an issue only for racists, like me, Rich likes him some cheap labor. Hey, his garden ain’t gonna garden itself.

 

Let’s have a little high-larious interlude: Dynasty Fight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Meghan McCain on Possible Chelsea Clinton Run: ‘What Fresh Hell Am I Living In?’

You’re in the one where Meghan McCain is considered a pundit and is paid to tell people what she ‘thinks’.

 

Bureaucrats Gone Wild!!!!!!!!!

The Chicago Police Department is investigating one of its officers after he helped three young girls found living in an abandoned home. The officer set up a GoFundMe page for the girls who were known as the Englewood Angels. The police department said the officer violated its policy by helping the girls…

Artz launched the effort (Gofundme) to raise money and supplies for the kids and the grandmother who agreed to take care of them. Dolores Anderson has a roof over her head and, for now, enough food and clothes to help raise her granddaughters who were found living in squalor just a few months ago…

Artz is accused of violating rule 52 which prohibits officers of seeking or soliciting contributions of any kind from anyone. The complaint against him was lodged by CPD Internal Affairs Commander Robert Klimas.

 

He had a box to check and check it he did!!!!!!

 

Saving New York From deBlasio!!

That’s the wrong formulation. You need to save NY from New Yorkers. They’re the ones who reelected the fool who spends all his time SJWing and not Mayoring. The guy who took their Big Gulps with extra salt. NYCers are the ones who voted in term limits and then reelected Bloomberg after he decided that there wouldn’t be term limits on him then elected de Commio.

 

New Zealand is focused, laser-like, on what’s important!

The local Māori tribe of Whanganui in the North Island has fought for the recognition of their river – the third-largest in New Zealand – as an ancestor for 140 years.

On Wednesday, hundreds of tribal representatives wept with joy when their bid to have their kin awarded legal status as a living entity was passed into law.

“The reason we have taken this approach is because we consider the river an ancestor and always have,” said Gerrard Albert, the lead negotiator for the Whanganui iwi [tribe].

Hey, at least they’re not still eating people.

So far as you know.

I would like the answer the most important question about this: Is the river a he or a she?

It’s a river. It’s gender is fluid!

*smack*

Sorry.

 

 

First gay cakes and now this!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? What the fuck?

A new business, run by a cake decorator…(was awarded) a Westland District Council project to build a $7 million sewage plant…

Sonomabatch. Can’t you just let them make cakes?

 

It’s like the Rose Bowl Parade except pornier.

Huge crowds flocked to the western Japanese city of Nagaoka Sunday to take part in a bizarre annual festival that sees women ride through the city streets on a giant wooden penis.

Dozens of newlywed women, some in traditional Japanese dress, sat atop the giant phallus which, according to tradition, brings marital bliss, fertility and good luck during the Hodare Festival held each year.

With an awesome gif that I can’t download or embed. Oh well.

 

Let’s end on a Decision.

On the one hand, may the force live long and prosper.

On the other hand, that’s an actual girl. No, really. It is.

 

When I went to NY last year I picked up my friend in Illinois, the ardent Dem. He told me he and his wife were coming to AZ in Feb or March. He showed up yesterday, out of the blue, and we hung out, that’s why I didn’t post. I had a bunch of links too.

He came down from Flagstaff to spend the afternoon in Mesa. We ate at a place called Blue Adobe in Mesa. It was okay, but not ‘authentic Mexican”. I’d call it California-Mexican. I’d rather eat at Filiberto’s. It tastes better and costs about 1/5 as much.
