Are those really my sockpuppets? I don’t remember writing those posts, but then, the 80s pretty well destroyed my short, long and medium term memory.
Eh, let’s tube. (again?)
But Cuba has universal literacy!!!!!!!! Like most lefty-pushed, Everybody-Knows-That things, it’s not so much true as TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have often heard or read about the supposed Cuban “culture and education,” a fabulous academic record based on official Cuban statistics and, of course, the Cuban Revolution and its (literally) ashen leader…
I had occasion to show her several categorical examples of the very renown solid and expansive Cuban culture.
Beyond the filthy and cracked streets, the mounds of rubble and the containers of overflowing debris, which by themselves speak of the peculiar conception of the hygiene and health culture in the Cuban capital, posters everywhere overflowed, plagued by spelling mistakes: “we have striped coconut” [rayado means striped, rallado, grated] read a sign at a market on Sites street; “Mixed coffee” [misspelled mesclado, should be mezclado] offered another ad on a menu board in a private coffee shop; “forbidden to throw papers on the floor” [proibido instead of prohibido] on a sign a bit further on.
Is it a misspelling if our social, moral, political and intellectual betters say it’s not?
Current Dutch PM says
As the Netherlands prepares for general elections in March, Prime Minister Mark Rutte has written and published an open letter urging anyone who cannot respect Dutch customs to leave the country….
We feel a growing discomfort when people abuse our freedom here to spoil things, while they just come to our country for that freedom,” Rutte wrote. “I understand that people think if you so fundamentally reject our country, I prefer that you leave. Act normally, or leave.”
That’s the guy who’s running against Geert Wilders (Parliamentarian system so that’s sorta “fake but accurate”), who was convicted of a hate crime for saying they need fewer immigrants.
That’s a funny formulation. Now, most people think what he meant is that immigrants who don’t like Dutch customs should leave, but if our fine, political betters over here are any guide, he means that Dutch people should leave cuz they’re all hatey and stuff. That’s why we have Trump and they have Wilders.
The traditional way of reporting on a president is dead. And Trump’s press secretary killed it.
No, it’s entirely your fault, you lied, hide(d) and cried (wolf) and now, you’re paying the price.
They could start reporting nothing but the truth in a non-slanted way and it would probably take 2-4 years of all of the lying assholes doing that before anybody would trust them.
Day 1 is more than just a day. It’s the end of an era. It’s the end of Obama.
Berlin, November, 1989. Moscow, August, 1991. Washington D.C., January, 2017. That’s the closest you can come to describing it. It’s the fall of an evil empire. There are breaths of fresh air as the cleansing rain washes away eight years of oppression, lies and corruption into the sewers of the city.
Now that’s hope for change!
Now, normally I don’t link hate sites, but the SPLC has one of the funniest things you’ll see all….uhhhh…… well, it’s funny.
Julie Kirchner, the former executive director of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), has been named chief of staff at U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the largest federal law enforcement agency of the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
That it pisses off the SPLC is surely a sign that’s all about teh awesome. FAIR is an anti-illegal organization and the only lefty-approved stance is pro-illegal immigration.
I’m still waiting for Trump to appoint Ron Paul to the Fed.
Speaking of hating haters who hate, Chuck, I’m the smarmiest, smuggest, most ignorantly dishonest fuckhead in the Senate, Schumer!
Chuck Schumer is proving to be the New York version of Harry Reid. He’s slimy, despicable and a filthy liar. He also loves to thrown around insults to those in the other party and punk out on his deals. Schumer had a deal with Republicans to confirm Mike Pompeo on Friday, rather than tonight. An unnecessary 72 hour delay. Tom Cotton of Arkansas then confront slimy Schumer on the Senate floor and Schumer insulted Cotton. That proved to be a bad idea. Chuck Schumer, like his untalented fat neice Amy Schumer isn’t a very good actor. Tom Cotton took Schumer to school on the Senate floor after slimy Schumer insulted him.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer piece of shit. Hopefully, some Republicans can keep calling him a piece of shit, treating him like a piece of shit and listening to him as much as a piece of shit deserves.
Sticking with I NY, I’m not posting this because I care,
Hillary Clinton is seriously considering a run for New York mayor, according to a major city political insider, who claims she’s “50-50.”
I’m just posting it for the awesome, suitable for face-cocking, picture.
You’re welcome MP!
This needs a good, old, Trumpian, “You’re Fired!”
A senior U.S. Secret Service agent posted social-media condemnations of President Trump during the past seven months, including one in which she said she wouldn’t want to “take a bullet” for him.
She explained herself saying she viewed his presidential candidacy as a “disaster” for the country, and especially for women and minorities.
So you’d take one for President I Hate Amerikkka and not for President I Love America? Fuck off. No, really. Fuck off.
Two totally unrelated items!
Pacman Jones, of the Cincinnati
Felons….Bengals, who makes $millions to play a game, says
Police have released the Bengals’ Adam Jones expletive-filled statements to a police sergeant the night he was arrested after an incident at the Millennium Hotel.
In a 20-minute video that shows Jones in the back seat of a Cincinnati police vehicle, Jones repeatedly shouts expletives at Sgt. Jarrod Cotton, who is African-American.
At one point, Jones says: “You a b—- a– n—-r. I hope you die tomorrow.”
And totally unrelatedly,
NFL TV viewership fell last season for the first time in four years…
It was the steepest dropoff in viewers in the past 10 years — and only the third down year since 2007.
Fuck em all. Fire Goodell!
I’m gonna heartily disagree with this.
THE RISE OF ONLINE FITNESS SERVICES SHOULD WORRY EVERY GYM OWNER.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t work out, I have my standards, but… I know lots of people who do work out and they’re not particularly thin. My sister goes to the gym almost every day, she has to be 20 lbs or more overweight.
I heard from a girl I hadn’t seen in years and we were talking and she talked about all the working out she did. I told a friend about how I was going to meet her and I was worried she’d be all cut and I would be…well…me. He said, “She’s either really fit or overweight and she’s making excuses for it before you see her.”
Option B it was.
So it appears to me that for many people, going to the gym isn’t about going to the gym but being able to say you went to the gym, working out at home doesn’t have the same cachet.
You know, some people just have to ruin everything.
A man was spotted beside the street holding a popcorn maker box by officers on patrol. They stopped to wish the man a “Happy National Popcorn Day”, which was recognized this year on Thursday, January 19.
The man immediately took off. The officers, now suspecting the package may have been stolen, ran after the man and eventually caught up with him.
$2,700 worth of drugs, including marijuana, was discovered.
Geez, we need popcorn not drugs! The next 4 years are going to be funny enough.
As for “National Popcorn Day” being 1/19, I’m gonna disagree. It started 1/20 and will be continuing for at least 4 years.
