I am so sick of all the Concerned and Alarmed idiocies about how firing Comey is the End of the Republic !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let’s see if I can ignore Comey for this post.

There’s something about this vid that I really like.

I’m not sure what it is, but I just like watching that.

 

Victor Davis Hanson wonders if Trump can successfully remodel the GOP.  Trump has some help in that, but as we’ve seen, the voters have very limited power to change the gov’t in our particular form of republic. We can change the names of our ‘leaders’, but we apparently have little more power to change the policies than residents of a People’s Republic or even a Democratic People’s Republic.

And this is why

Republicans concentrate on what they like in the Trump agenda — military spending increases, energy expansion, deterrence abroad, tax and regulatory reform, and the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act — and they ignore the inherent contradictions between Trumpism and their own political creed…

In this mainstream Republican view, the role of a superpower is to endure trade deficits to help its less powerful allies and keep the global order prosperous and stable. But Trump’s idea of “fair” trade trumps “free” trade.
Trump is not willing to accept a permanent Midwest Rust Belt as the price of globalization.

Yup. They think that people who want to revitalize American manufacturing are parochial and just not that bright. If we have to pay for their vision of how the world works, well, that’s what welfare is for!

At first he seemed to be defending our fine political betters, but then he noticed reality in a way that’s very intelligent (i.e. agrees with what I think)

More

Unlike doctrinaire Republicans, Trump believes that illegal immigration is a big — and bad — deal.
The Republican establishment’s employer argument is that illegal immigration ensures that the sort of work “Americans won’t do” is actually done. Or, some establishment Republicans believe that undocumented migrants who cross the southern border will one day become conservative, “family values” voters.
Not so Trumpism. It seeks to help the working class by stopping the importation of cheap labor. It believes that secure borders will restore the sanctity of law, and that the end of illegal immigration will lead to greater integration and assimilation of Latino minority groups.

Exactly. The way we integrated immigrants for 200 years is just so simplisme! The Melting Pot is racist and cannot be taught anymore! Diversity is our strength!

While having diverse opinions can be strengthening, we are balkanizing. Immigrants from previous generations are only different in the food they eat and the booze they drink in general. That includes many (most?) Mexicans, although that numbers was a higher percentage of the whole a few decades ago.

Trumpism has no illusions that there will ever be a world of liberal democracies. It seeks instead only to make sure enemies understand that any future aggression will not be worth the anticipated benefits.

Nuke The Moon! baby. We don’t need our enemies to like us, they won’t, we just need them to respect and fear us. Or just fear us. But respect makes it easier to intimidate.

As for dictators such as those in the Philippines or Egypt, Trumpism argues that it makes little sense to snub autocratic friends while cutting deals with autocratic enemies like those in Iran or Cuba.

That’s a great point, why should we be nice to the murderous dictators in China and Iran and mean to non- or less-murderous assholes elsewhere? The asshole in the Philippines isn’t killing his opposition (yet?) and the assholes in Egypt are killing their natural enemies (Christians and insufficiently similar Muslims) but leaving the rest of the world alone. Even Israel mostly.

Obama and Hillary got rid of Mubarak without a plan, Trump shouldn’t do the same. Especially as a sane plan would include us getting involved there after deposing the current dictators. We are done Nation-Building for the foreseeable future. We just don’t have the balls to do it the way we did with Japan and Germany, “Here’s your constitution and gov’t. Meet your new military governor. He’ll be leaving when we can trust you not to be murderous assholes and can trust your neighbors not to invade you and make you differently murderous assholes.”

Now we run away.

On matters of identity politics, Republicans have often sought to play down but not actively oppose racial, ethnic, and gender pressure groups. The strategy has been to not antagonize the ethnic and race industries in hopes of receiving a greater share of the minority vote.
Trump is politically incorrect.

And it’s been hilarious.

Trump just keeps making end runs around Minitrue’s Narrative and the entire We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party is just freaking out. Their weapons are useless!

So we see articles like this from Concerned Republicans Who Only Want What Is Best For The Nation!

Headline

For the love of God, delete his account

That would be Trump’s Twitter account. The one that gives our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters such agita.

President Trump’s impulsive social media habit does little to advance his agenda, it pulls both his fans and critics into endless fights and it has created several major headaches for top White House staffers, including Sean Spicer and Kellyanne Conway.

That’s funny. Our fine betters in Minitrue, their entertainment arm, the rest of the Democratic party and most of the GOP are forced to change their actions because of Trump’s tweets. He got more action out of the country using social media than anyone since Sarah Palin put out her “Death Panel” deal.

It’s no small thing for a sitting president to appear to threaten a former FBI director. (shit, I thought I’d make it without Comeying V)

After 8 years of Obama threatening everybody from day 1, including police doing their jobs, private citizens, more private citizens,  more private citizens, more private citizens, more pr…(moving on) journalists (both real and suckophantic), our military, businesses… I know I’m leaving some people out, but Trump going after Hillary’s Head Bitch is not even in the same ballpark. Trump telling Comey not to lie about him is not just not wrong, but shows Trump has been paying attention to Comey.

It’s even worse when that same director formerly headed an investigation into the role hostile foreign agents played in the election that swept said president into power.

Still fucking that Russia Hacked The Election!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! chicken I see. Once you see that you can safely assume that the idiot who wrote it is not processing reality. And even if it was 100% Russian Hacking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what did they do? The Job Americans Won’t Do, i.e. report accurately on Democrat perfidy and felonyizing. Above we saw that the GOP is all about foreigners doing the Jobs Americans Won’t Do but now they’re against it. Why…. it’s almost as if they use situational ethics where who is on the receiving end decides the morality and ethics of a position!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Assholes.

A non-exhaustive recap of the past week’s crop of Comey Fake News!!!!! that was breathlessly and shriekingly reported and (occasionally) quietly corrected.

If you care. I skimmed it, I don’t really need a reminder of the lies, distortions, contortions and “anonymous” liars they have and are trotting out. The only use for it is that I think Americans are actually watching with dropped jaw as our betters freak out over something they had all, each and every fucking one, called for as little as a week ago.

Speaking of assholes from the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party, John, I hate Veeshir, McCain!

Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, offered high praise for Sen. John McCain on Friday, saying the Arizona Republican’s vocal criticism of President Trump marks his “finest hour.”

“I think frankly this is John McCain’s finest hour,” Schiff said on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

The senior Arizona senator has also been critical of Trump’s “America first” approach to foreign policy,

Exactly. We gave the GOP victories in the last few elections because we didn’t like what the Dems were doing to our nation so what do the big shit sheep…grand poo bahs of the GOP do? Stuff that gets praise from Democrats. Asshole Democrats like Schiff.

 

Speaking of the entertainment arm of the Democratic media/entertainment political complex, The Last (conservative) Man Standing isn’t.

The cancellation by ABC of Tim Allen’s hit comedy “Last Man Standing”…

Allen’s biting and genuinely funny witticisms poking fun at all things liberal. Its humor is balanced, with the show featuring a Canadian liberal son-in-law who gets his points across…

the blue-collar sitcom was ABC’s second most watched comedy this season with 8.1 million viewers in Live +7, only behind flagship Modern Family (8,7 million). It was the third most watched ABC scripted series overall behind Grey’s Anatomy and Modern Family….(emphasis me V)

 

So they canceled one of the shows that people actually want to watch for their religion. Someone should tell them that tithing only requires 10%, not bankruptcy. Via Commonsense and Wonder.

 

The NY Post plays Name That Party! about a DA stepping back as he’s being criminally investigated.

allegations he took part in a police coverup involving former Suffolk Police Chief James Burke, who pleaded guilty in February 2016 to federal charges that he beat a man who stole a stash of porn and a sex toy from Burke’s official vehicle.

I don’t get the problem, misuse of gov’t property is a right and Dems covering up their accomplices in graft is how NY works! He looks sorta old, maybe the ass’t DA wasn’t interested in waiting for him to retire.

 

Nothing story about a Republican running for election has “irregularities” in his past, I’d say his mistake is he wasn’t high enough up in the hierarchy of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party to have the necessary degree of impunity.

Former South Carolina state senator Ralph Norman, who is running as the conservative candidate in the state’s fifth congressional district, sat on the board of a bank that accepted millions of dollars from the Obama administration’s 2008 bailout.

But I’m linking for the part I bolded. In 2008 Obama was not POTUS, that was Bush’ 2008 bailout.

Norman served on South Carolina Bank and Trust Financial Corporation’s board of directors in January 2009 when the bank sold $64.8 million in preferred stock and a 10-year warrant to the Treasury Department under its Capital Purchase Program, which was created as part of the federal government’s $700 billion bailout.

January, 2009 was when Obama ascended, that was Bush’s bailout.  The one he rammed down the financial world’s throat.

The chief executives of the country’s nine largest banks had no choice but to accept capital infusions from the Treasury Department in October, government documents released Wednesday have confirmed.

Obtained and released by Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan educational foundation, the documents reveal “talking points” used by then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson during the Oct. 13 meeting between federal officials and the executives that stressed the investments would be required “in any circumstance,” whether the banks found them appealing or not.

Notice that in 2009 to that member in good standing of our fine media betters Judicial watch was “non-partisan”. (I know I missed a couple commas in there but I’m not sure where so here are a few you can insert  ,,,)

But why is the Free Beacon obfuscating the issue of who started stimuluzing and bailouting while attacking this man as a Friend Of Obama? Is the “journalist” just an idiot or is there some sort of agenda in play?

Ralph Norman, who is running as the conservative candidate in the state’s fifth congressional district,

Are they joining the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party or is it just that opinionator or are they angry that he’s not a conservative or some other, undisclosed, reason?

Because I’ll tell you what, taking money you’re forced to take by the POTUS from your party is not necessarily a sign that you’re not conservative.

Just something that confused me.

 

This is very messed up. In a story about a Gorsuch dissent (he was against the arrest), we see this.

The New Mexico incident began in 2011 when the student, known only as F.M. in court papers, kept interrupting his physical education class with fake burps. The teacher sent him into the hallway, where he continued burping and laughing as he leaned into the classroom entrance. (emphasis me V)

The teacher called for assistance on her school radio, and soon Arthur Acosta, a police officer assigned to the school, arrived in the hallway, according to court documents.

Acosta took the boy to the school’s office, then placed him under arrest for violating a New Mexico law that prohibits anyone from disrupting the education process. Acosta handcuffed the student and took him to the juvenile detention center, where the boy stayed about an hour until he was picked up…

I think it’s ridiculous that the kid was arrested, expel him if he’s that disrespectfully disruptive, but notice a few things.

There were cops patrolling the school, that’s not often done in schools where it’s not necessary. Maybe the cop knew the kid from previous interactions. Judging from what happened, I’m gonna assume this choir boy/orphanage-volunteer had previously had such disrespectful and disruptive episodes.

Also think about what he was doing.

Acosta’s lawyer says the criminal act was the boy’s “interference with the educational process, not the act of burping.”

Sure, it was burping and laughing, but he was showing a complete lack of respect for the teacher, the other students and the whole concept of school. Further, his actions showed that he was utterly unafraid of any repercussions. From my experience, I’m gonna assume calling the parents would not be a useful exercise.

There are a lot of kids like that, I’m not just saying that just from my teaching experience but from relatives’ kids and their friends.

School cannot work unless there’s respect flowing both ways. Respect for others is sorely lacking in today’s culture.

 

Let’s Tolerance!

First up, we have this.

A Detroit-area high school is holding an all-girls prom

That’s not a prom. Jebus. How can you have a prom without prom-dates? Here’s the Tolerance part.

to create a comfortable and safe environment for girls who cannot attend the traditional co-ed prom for cultural reasons.

So in other words, the girls’ owners (male relatives) would beat them, honor-kill them, cut off their noses or just throw acid in their faces if they act like American girls.

I hate people sometimes. You really should not cater to that shit.

Now, for a little palate-washer, let’s look at the State of American Heavy Metal! They’re bad ass, they won’t cave to intolerant religious assholes who are intolerant!

Megadeth agreed to cut songs that were potentially “offensive” to Muslims after the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) Youth group voiced its objection to them touring the country.

Oh.

I wish to offend no one here. We cut songs for China.”

Really? Megadeth was out manlied by Elton John?

Chinese authorities have hardened their line on foreign musicians, after Elton John infuriated them by dedicating a performance to outspoken artist and activist Ai Weiwei, according to industry sources. Police arrived to interview the singer shortly after he announced that the performance, which took place in Beijing last November, was dedicated “to the spirit and talent of Ai Weiwei”

So sad.

When people try to censor your art, you tell them to fuck off or you just do your deal.

However, he (Jeff Dunham V) was informed by the Ministry of Information, Communication and Culture that Achmed should not be mentioned or brought on to the show..

Dunham cleverly side-stepped the issue by introducing a new character; “Who knew that Achmed had a French cousin — Jacques, the dead French terrorist?” he says. “It was Achmed with a beret and mustache, and the audience loved it, thankfully. But I was a bit frightened there, too. I thought, ‘Will they drag me off the stage and make an example of me?’ I honestly thought that was a possibility, as you never know how strict and real these laws are.”

So in other words, a flamingly flamboyent homosexual musician, second only to Liberace in his flamboyence, flaming and homosexuality, and a guy who plays with dolls have more balls than Megadeth!

Still say 80s music has heart and soul?

This made me laugh when I saw it. I’d like to see the entire show, but even his specials only show bits and pieces.

That’s how you do it.

 

Relatedly, Trump appoints a Frenchman, Vladimierre Poutin, as head of the FBI!

Sometimes reality is less funny than fantasy.

 

And then there are times like this.

A judge set bail Friday for an Elkhorn man accused of hiring prostitutes to bare their breasts and strip on his neighbor’s porch

My neighbors just call the cops on me.

Not sure why the cops got involved this time though, it seems to me a ‘Thank You’ was in order.

 

I thought hockey players were exempt from this shit.

Islanders goalie Thomas Greiss has apologized after he reportedly caused an outrage in Germany when it was discovered that he “liked” an Instagram post comparing Hillary Clinton to Adolf Hitler.

Although the way they’ve been trying to Stop Hockey’s Ultra-Violent Ways!!!!!!!!!!!! I should have figured SJW’s were paying attention.

One thing, I wonder if Hillary shaves anything like a Hitler mustache.

*smack*

Sorry, but if I had warned you you wouldn’t have read that and cringed.

The funniest thing I’ve heard hockey announcers say was when Montreal made Pierre Turgeon captain cuz he’s French-Canadian and a NY Islanders announcer said, “That’s ridiculous. If that were the case, the Islanders would have to have a Jew as captain!

The next day I waited to see but nobody freaked out. I figured they were still exempt, but apparently the forces of Tolerance And Love have decided that every aspect of our lives needs to be Toleranced, Loved and Mostly-Peaced.

 

 

I found an inside look at one of the top journalists at the Wash Post!

 

They’re obviously very busy, that must be why their lies and Fake News are so pathetic.

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.

 

5-dollar-kill

That’s freaking awesome. Via this site, Odd Stuff Magazine, that apparently every blogger in the world knows about but me.

And probably Ace.

So is it illusion that it’s no war in Ukraine or is it delusion?

An area near the industrial zone came under fire. As a result of explosions of shells on Levanevskoho Str., Soborna Str., and Lermontova Str., eight houses were damaged by shrapnel. Rooftops, walls, and windows suffered considerable damage,” the press service of the National Police in Donetsk region reported.

 

Delusion, they’re surely not hiding it. I do not think the spring is going to be fun in much of the world.

 

Delusional thinking knows no limits!

European leaders get together in Munich to discuss the invasion of a part of Europe!

The Munich Agreement was a settlement permitting Nazi Germany’s annexation of portions of Czechoslovakia along the country’s borders mainly inhabited by German speakers, for which a new territorial designation “Sudetenland” was coined…

Because the state of Czechoslovakia was not invited to the conference,…

Oh wait, wrong Munich Conference.

Foreign ministers of the Normandy Four have started negotiations in Munich on settlement of the situation in Donbas, according to an UNIAN correspondent…

The talks are being held on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference with the participation of Foreign Ministers of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin, Russia Sergey Lavrov, Germany Sigmar Gabriel, and France Jean-Marc Ayrault,

 

Eh, at least this time they invited Czechoslovakia…Ukraine. They’re still gonna be betrayed, but they’ll be able to watch it in real time.

 

Delusion or illusion?

CBS News has learned that on Thursday, an angry President Trump called CIA Director Mike Pompeo and yelled at him for not pushing back hard enough against reports that the intelligence community was withholding information from the commander-in-chief.

Every report about Trump from any minitrue outlet should be considered a lie until proven stupid, how could they know he “yelled”? I wouldn’t dispute that Trump called him and took him to task for that bit of assholery,  but I sincerely doubt he “yelled at him”. So… is that story delusion or illusional?

Scott Adams says, Delusional!

When reality violates your ego that rudely, you either have to rewrite the movie in your head to recast yourself as an idiot, or you rewrite the movie to make yourself the hero who could see what others missed. Apparently the Huffington Post chose to rewrite their movie so Trump is a deranged monster, just like they warned us. That’s what they see. This isn’t an example of so-called “fake” news as we generally understand it. This is literally imaginary news. I believe the Huffington Post’s description of the press conference is literally what they saw.

Yup. They cannot admit, especially to themselves, that they’re idiots.

 

I’m going with both illusional and delusional on this, and more!

The Northern Arizona University Political Science department recently hosted a “Specter of Fascism” event at which professors repeatedly compared Donald Trump to Hitler and the Nazis.

“The Specter of Fascism” was a panel discussion featuring six NAU professors with specialties covering politics and international affairs, women and gender studies, and criminology.

It’s attempted indoctrination by delusional fools pushing an illusion.

I agree with this bit though

“The material and psychological conditions that made it possible for the Nazis to mobilize masses around an ideologically constructed enemy are the very same conditions in which our politics is unfolding today

Except I’d say the people who are busily rioting around the country are the incipient fascists.

Now, Trump the Fascist is an illusion they’re trying to create, but their idiocy hampers that. Let’s continue the quote about how the conditions are the same as for the Nazis.

explaining that “these material conditions are a capitalist, economic, and bourgeois social world in which private gain…you know, ruthlessly competitive world is celebrated and where economic suffering combine with deep social isolation is the condition we live in.”

Ummmmm, that’s the commie revolution idiot lefties have been masturbating to since Marx first thought it up, the rise of fascism was an entirely different deal.

 

Okay, I’ve heard some stupid things from Bill Gates, but this is the most disingenuous and delusional thing I’ve ever heard.

Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft and world’s richest man, said in an interview Friday that robots that steal human jobs should pay their fair share of taxes.

“Right now, the human worker who does, say, $50,000 worth of work in a factory, that income is taxed and you get income tax, Social Security tax, all those things,” he said. “If a robot comes in to do the same thing, you’d think that we’d tax the robot at a similar level.”

Disingenuous because he knows the people who run the robots will be taxed so the people buying the products will pay the taxes, delusional because… that’s about the stupidest fucking thing I’ve ever heard.

The worst part? Nancy Pelosi, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and Chuck fucking Schumer just got huge boners and they’re not sure why.

 

I didn’t realize Pat Buchanan was running!

The Church’s legislative body voted last night against a report that calls for continued opposition to same-sex marriage…

Now some clergy have come forward saying they made a mistake when using their voting machines, and that they actually supported their colleagues’ report.

I would bet fifty cents that was supposed to be failure theater. They wanted the vote to be close but they miscounted and screwed it up.

 

Sticking with gay stuff,

A police veteran with 22 years on the force was told to “tone down” his sexuality if he ever wanted a promotion to lieutenant, according to a discrimination lawsuit.

At first I thought, “I can understand that, women who are cops do not emphasize their femininity so they can intimidate..well…me. Men should not either.”, but then I thought about the fact that he was already a 22 year veteran, that would seem to point out they just don’t like gay cooties.

Everyone knows girls are where cooties come from. I just wish more people would accept that.

 

The way that book should have ended!

franks-ending

 

Now, some of you made fun of me for my boycott of Lemur King but, as usual, I was just ahead of my time!

F]eminists are pushing a boycott of Trump wines and Wegmans for selling it. … Since the boycott began the sale of Trump Wines has skyrocketed. [story]

Ivanka Trump’s perfume line shot to the top of Amazon’s bestseller’s list, as the first daughter faces boycott efforts by liberals and supporters counter with a #buyivanka campaign. [story]

A viral video shows a group of women storming into a Nordstrom to cancel their accounts in response to the retailer’s decision to stop selling Ivanka Trump’s fashion brand, promising to shop at Dillard’s instead. [story]

Hah!

The problem is that Veeshir-style boycotts take so much time and effort they’re just not worth it.

When is it all going to come crashing down?

I just want to get a post in before game 6 tonight. If Cleveland wins, we’re doomed. If Chicago wins, the doom is delayed but I can’t count on that.

Let’s set some mood music.

 

Now to go back in time in a non-musical way.

I was looking for something else and found this post, from 4/2011 by some dude who doesn’t have anything to do with this blog anymore, titled:

Trump stands as warning GOPers need to grow a fucking pair

They didn’t grow a pair and here we are.

Matt Lewis has this exactly right, the biggest reason Trump can talk about making a serious run without being laughed out of the room is because he’s the only one getting really aggro against Obama

Now he’s the only one aggro against the whole We’re Better And Smarter Than You party.

At least, I assume he is. I’m not really sure what “aggro” means. Probably some 80s music slang.

With this disclaimer that so many of us understand.

…I’m just noting this is what fucking happens when the GOP leadership becomes what it has become.

Yup. And they spent 4 years getting worse and worse so here we are.

Voting for Trump.

 

I’ll take that dare.

For fans of candy corn…  that puts the potentially lethal dose at 1,627 pieces,

If you don’t hear from me, they were right.

 

Via xbradtc we see this bit of hilarity.

What do we have here?” said Gerald Brooks, greeting another group of costumed trick-or-treaters. “A princess, a werewolf, and — oh. Out-fucking-standing. More imitation soldiers.”…

No Snickers for you, Jarhead. Now get the hell off my porch.”…

“This is a travesty,” Brooks fumed after the children left. “I haven’t seen a single costume that’s AR 670-1 compliant…

 

RTWT, it’s a hoot. It stays funny throughout and ends on some darn good funny. Especially read the quotes comments, the first one out of the blocks gets the Dan Rather Award For Clueless Credulity.

 

So you have a pet alligator. You’d think you could work out some costume that incorporated your pet alligator. But not if you’re this type of crazy.

By “treats”, I assume he means, “Trick or treaters”.

 

Let’s end on another bit of Twitter Win!

I might have to start playing.

Our fine media betters rarely fail to make to me laugh, it’s just that usually it’s tempered by fury at their dishonesty, but this story about LGBT types who are figuring out that they need to take charge of their own protection is just funny.

First, let’s hear from someone who is more trusting of their honesty.

Jonathan Fischer is never sure who’s going to be more surprised when he, as he likes to put it, comes out of the gun closet — the gun aficionados who find out he’s gay or the gay friends who find out he likes shooting guns.

 

Yeah, I bet he was pretty surprised when most gun owners couldn’t care any less where he puts his dick. I also bet many of his, lefty, gay friends were less than tolerant of his deviation from their norm.

An example of an intolerant, reich-wing hater

When the firearms instructor at the range near Piru asked each person in the class why he or she was there, Fischer ticked off several reasons and mentioned the Pink Pistols.

“What is the Pink Pistols group?” a man asked.

There was a pause.

“We’re — a gay gun group,”…

“No, that’s awesome,” the man said, nodding reassuringly….

There was such an outpouring of support from firearms trainers, many of them straight,

Hating haters gonna hate.

Tolerant people gonna tolerate.

The Pink Pistols has received a mostly negative response from the broader LGBT community, she said. Some LGBT centers, she said, have even specifically banned the Pink Pistols from using their facilities.

You’d think the “journalist” would have noticed something there.

That’s your problem. Stop thinking when reading Minitrue “journalists”, just point and laugh.

 

These consecutive paragraphs really made me laugh.

It’s a stark contrast to how the overwhelming majority of LGBT activists and organizations responded to the Orlando massacre, which has sparked calls within the community for gun control.

In the wake of the shooting, some gay bars like the Abbey in West Hollywood beefed up security

They want more gun control so they got people with guns to protect them and this “journalist” did not notice any conflict or humor in that at all.

Further,the “journalist” didn’t note that the Orlando shooter was a security guard.

 

And that’s the funniest part.  The fool who wrote that would have no idea why I find it funny. None whatsoever.

Me tubin’ Too.

First, something I can’t decide if it’s funny or endy or just pathetically terrifying.

When I played that, it had a Trump ad across the middle. I’ll call that a win.

Which leads to a comment I posted at Paco’s that made me laugh. I’m posting it here to make me laugh again.

RebeccaH, good point.

Starting with the ’96 election, the candidates have become progressively (pun intended) worse and worse.

If you plot the trajectory on a graph, you find that by 2024 the candidates will be a Papa John’s pizza running against Wednesday.

 

Next, some gunny stuff.

I must have been about 5 years too young for this awesomeness.

I still want one.

 

So, anybody up for a game of pool?

I’d need to borrow a 9mm, my stuff just blows the shit out of the table.

I had an Ebiscu Muscats vid ready, but as I watched it, I realized it just wasn’t as hot as Banana Mango High School.

But this one was queued on the side, so I figured I would post it as a public service to the Chinese who seem hell-bent on getting into a war with the Chinese.

We are not nearly afraid enough of the Japanese.

What the hell is going on in that vid eo? There’s something about it that almost makes sense but it’s just out of reach.

I mean, you can almost see it, and then a bunch of bones floats by and a huge black guy in knickers starts dancing.

I just find it hard to believe that even two atomic bombs can erase centuries of being badasses so they’re a powderkeg waiting to get off…go off.

Important Update Below!!!!!!

First, I have to admit I’m all in favor of this.

The taxpayer funded University of Arizona will become the first university in America to offer a transgender studies program.

The program is set to launch by fall of 2017, and will grant master’s degrees.

The school’s program will focus on sex, gender, cultural issues, political issues, and the life experiences of transgender people.

Who doesn’t want the angry fools who would want a master’s in transgender studies to be out $tens of thousands for a degree that’s the opposite of useful? The only jobs with that in the requirements are to teach it and if that’s not in the requirements, you would be an idiot to hire any angry fools who thought it was a good idea.

I am going back and forth on my opinion of University of Arizona over this.

Which sort of dickhead institution offers that as a master’s?

The type that thinks they’re performing a public service or the type that figures a fool and his/her/xer/cher/cis/its money is soon parted so they might as well get some?

Either way, I’m just not sure if I’m fer it or again it. I mean, if it was Harvard, I’d be all for it, but I respected the University of AZ.

 

We all know my ticket is

Clinton-Bush

 

but I could be persuaded to support Trump.

So long as he chooses a good running mate.

Trump Cthulhu

 

Important Update!!!!!!

Really, there’s only one choice that could bring the GOP together.
