The biggest problem I have with today is exactly how ridiculous our Elites!!!! are and yet, they all pretend they’re not fucking ridiculous while others act as if everything is not absurd.

I’ve often thought the worst part about being a lefty must be keeping track of what you’re supposed to think. I mean, football players are bad, but for some reason the one who tortured, abused and fought dogs was A-OK.

Here we have a leftist audience not getting the memo that Comey should not be fired.

Notice the laugh when he tries to play it off as if there are a bunch of Trump fans in his audience.

Cuz everybody likes to go be entertained by a guy who calls you a fascist constantly!

Also notice at the end they figure out how they’re supposed to think and the hissing and the 2 minutes hate begin.

We’ve always been allied with Eastasia!

 

Charles Krauthammer, Never Trumper Extraordinaire! sez!

Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer slammed President Donald Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday, calling it “inexplicable” and saying the stated rationale behind the decision was “implausible.”

Charles, did you not watch Comey dance, shit, spit and piss on the rule of law last year? I know you were one of the ones who thought Hillary was guilty of high crimes and higher crimes.

In an appearance on Fox News’ “Special Report” Thursday night, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said the issues facing Hillary Clinton about her emails is “not over” and has “long legs.” Citing the the impending lawsuit against the State Department by the Associated Press and investigations by the House, Krauthammer says the problems facing the former secretary of state won’t be going away any time soon.

Well, they won’t go away until Comey whitewaters….whitewashes the deal for her.

But then, that was from 2015 when a Trump POTUSy was RIDICULOUS!!! according to the very Elitest and Smartest Among Us!!!

The fact that Comey covered up all the problems Charles had a problem with for his DO”J” masters means nothing to Krauthammer, cuz there’s a Trump to be got so no ridiculosity is a ridiculouserness too far!

 

In Akbar Britain news,

This morning, just after 4 a.m., the Bedfordshire Police went to Tommy Robinson’s house, banged on his door, woke up his entire family, arrested Tommy, and took him to jail.

So, what dastardly deed did dude do?

I’ll tell you what he did, because I was there with him. Two days ago, Tommy Robinson and I went to the Canterbury Crown Court, to report on the trial of an alleged Muslim rape gang.

That’s it. That’s all we did. That’s why Tommy was arrested.

See, Tommy and I both work full-time for TheRebel.Media. And unlike the mainstream media that prefers to cover up horrific crimes like that, we report them. These four Muslim men are on trial for allegedly gang-raping a 16-year-old girl who wandered into their kebab shop asking for directions.

It is illegal to notice stuff like that. It’s a hate crime, just ask the BBC. Oh wait, you can’t mention that on BBC. See? Ridiculous!…I mean Hatecrime!

Via Kagogi’s favorite thing.

 

This ain’t ridiculous! Trump is going with the Veeshir Syrian Plantm!

Kurdish elements of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) would be equipped to help drive IS from its stronghold, Raqqa, a spokeswoman said.

Just send AKs, RPGs, they’ll supply the jihadis.

For Peace!

 

It’s funny how many people think the TI-84 is a useful calculator.

If you took a math class at some point in the US, there is likely a bulky $100 calculator gathering dust somewhere in your closet.

Yup, but I still use my HP-48G.

That would be the Texas Instruments 84—or the TI 84-Plus, or the TI-89, or any of the other even more expensive variants—a shoe-sized graphing calculator…

Public- and private-school students alike are usually required to buy the calculator themselves

I still remember one math teacher who tried to make me get one of those things and stop using my HP, I didn’t point and laugh but it was implied.

Journalist displays ignorance! Film at….whenever you feel like watching I guess.

By maintaining a monopoly on the graphing calculator market,

Yeah..no.

The point is that someone else is selling a similar, toy-like calculator, to compete with the Fisher-Pri…TI-84.

 

Get an HP, they’re calculators for adults. Reverse Polish is the only way.

 

Man, some people just get to make the coolest denials.

Jim McElwain Says That’s Not Him Nude And Humping A Shark

I always have to make uncool admissions.

 

Since HeyZeus asked so nicely, let’s Caballero and other stuff below the fold.

(more…)

And throwing fish at me to get me.

Former acting Attorney General Sally Yates will testify in front of a Senate subcommittee Monday about what and when she told the Trump White House in regard to Michael Flynn’s ties to Russia.

Why?

Why isn’t Lerner testifying about what the Obama White House told her in regards to her ties to fascism?

Why aren’t they going after actual lawlessness instead of trying to keep this non-story in the new…..

Oh right. The We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party hates Trump almost as much as they hate me.

 

So I saw this headline

Lawsuit Threatens Congressional Tool…

And I thought, “Finally! McCain or Graham are going to get what they deserve!”

But the tool they were talking about was neither McCain nor Graham!?!?!?! It wasn’t even McConnell!

seeking to strike down the Congressional Review Act

Wrong tool!  There are some right over there (points at Congress) that would make America Great Again if we got rid of them.

 

If you need some more links about Obama’s wiretapping of Trump, click here.

Not sure why you’d bother trying to convince anybody of reality if they don’t remember watching it happen (Here are leaked transcripts of wiretaps of Trump’s peeps!!!… No! Obama did not wiretap Trump’s peeps!), then showing them more proof surely won’t do any good. YMMV.

 

Birds of a feather tell Teh Peepul to fuck off together!

Mayor de Blasio is so intent on going to the mat defending Correction Commissioner Joseph Ponte’s blatant abuse of a city vehicle and frequent absences from work that he’s now trashing his own investigators for blowing the whistle…

As if professional investigators don’t know how to, you know, investigate.

As for the DOI probe that uncovered the abuse by Ponte and his subordinates: That’s just “their views,” said de Blasio.

How dare you go after one of his peeps? Have you no sense of exactly how corrupt NY is supposed to be? I mean, it’s not as if it’s a Republican trying to stop Democratic priorities!

 

Who teaches students that words are violence? While the plural of anecdote is not data, I’ve seen variations on this in most schools in the greater Phoenix area

It’s a hate-crime to say the bit about words never hurting you unless you let them.

 

I’m gonna have to disagree.

Another Drink Won’t Help

And then he talks about our fine media betters refusing to say the word, “socialism” or “murderous dictator” when discussing Venezuela.

The growing economic crisis (was) fueled by low prices for oil, the country’s main export; a drought that has crippled Venezuela’s ability to generate hydroelectric power; and a long decline in manufacturing and agricultural production.” – IBD

Another drink is about all you can do for those poor bastards.

 

FIFA is working on kicking Israel out! I could click to find out why, but seriously, why bother? I’m sure it has something to do with Palestinians and apartheid and premeditated jewishness. I was going to list members, but once I got past “Palestine” and Syria on my way to Afghanistan, Iran and….I got tired.

Why bother? Just because FIFA is perfectly okay with murderous dictatorships, places with actual, “bill-of-sale” slavery and that treat women like property, I got depressed.

And much of our country and most of the world have no idea why I have a problem with this. Except that I’m a racist hater.

 

I did my taxes late this year and I was broke in April so I didn’t do BAG day and didn’t even mention it. I’m a little embarrassed about that.

But you know what doesn’t suck?

Chiappa 1887 Mare’s Leg.

Gauge, 12 Gauge!

It’s all about useless but also all about teh fun.

What it’s causing:

Baby it’s hot outside. I’m rereading the Lost Fleet series but it’s not fun when it’s 104 even if I am shaded.

 that’s the screen in front of my porch. It lets some light through so I’m not in the shade so much as less light.

At night, with the moths, that screen looks like one of those WWII “enemy identification” charts that coast watchers and AA gunners would use so they’d know who to report on or shoot, respectively.

 I think that’s a German Henschel 123 dive bomber.

Let’s ‘tube!

The other reason I’m here is I was looking for something grammar-related when I read this

Traditional grammar defines the object in a sentence as the entity that is acted upon by the subject.[1] There is thus a primary distinction between subjects and objects that is understood in terms of the action expressed by the verb, e.g. Tom studies grammar – Tom is the subject and grammar is the object. Traditional theories of sentence structure divide the simple sentence into a subject and a predicate,[2] whereby the object is taken to be part of the predicate.[3] Many modern theories of grammar (e.g. dependency grammars), in contrast, take the object to be a verb argument like the subject, the difference between them being mainly just their prominence; the subject is ranked higher than the object and is thus more prominent.[4] (emphasis me V)

and it made me want to write a post about child abuse, it was also a good reason to get into the a/c.

Before I get into why I have a problem (and I’d bet many of you as well, especially if you have children), the point of the whole thing is that our fine intellectual betters make a game of saying the most anti-reasonable things and then the rest act as if it’s PROFOUND!!! and GROUND-BREAKING!!!! when really it’s just unlearning lessons we’ve spent millennia learning.

Let’s have FrnakJ explain it.

The Alpha liberals are the smaller faction of liberals who create the new and idiotic ideas for other liberals to follow. To put that in more practical terms, they pick the cliff that other lemmings jump off of.(1) The Alpha liberal or pinhead, to use the more common term come in the guise of politicians, activist judges, and the college professor. Often, these liberals are at the higher end of the intelligence bell curve. Why, you ask, would smart people come up with the moronic ideas that liberals are so fond of. Well, I’ll explain.

And he does.

That’s been a long-term trend. People have to say ridiculous things so others can nod and say, “How wise! How profound!” when it’s really just going against what we spent millennia learning.

 

I tried teaching math to a lot of different grades, from 6th to 12th, and they could not multiply even 6×4 without their calculators. A few decades ago it became the fashion that learning math is supposed to be fun and memorizing the multiplication wasn’t fun so… adios basics.

I’ve had something on my mind for a long time that greatly bothers me: the multiplication table. This is because I think that education should be fun — full stop. Memorizing the multiplication table is not fun. But more than that, I believe they are the source of most people’s hatred of math. At the same time, I’ve long thought that one should probably know them. And that created a conflict in me because I thought that it was really only possible to know them by memorizing them. But the other day it occurred to be what hogwash that is.

 

Kids are taught the short-cuts you learn after you learn the basics in stead of the basics.

He mentions a bad way to teach the times table as the reason it’s bad

And he used to do this thing where he would go desk by desk asking each student one question, “Seven times eight?” He went sequentially through the table and the desks, so I always calculated which question I would get so I could figure it out and say it the moment he asked me. In that case, there was clearly some mathematics education going on for me, but it had nothing to do with the multiplication table.

Yeah, see. As you noted he wasn’t teaching the times table so much as teaching to pay attention to shortcut learning. If he had randomized it, you would have learned more. But you did learn a bunch as using the multiplication table gets you to remember it.

Strawman alert!

The rationale for knowing your multiplication table is that if you know them, then you can do things like multiply and divide arbitrarily large numbers. But if that’s true, why were we taught the table from 1 through 12?

Yeah, that’s a nitwitish way to put it and a nitwitish question.

It’s so kids can learn the basics so they can more easily learn the advanced. Like multiplying large numbers, or doing calculus. We could not use a calculator in any of my college calculus classes. It led to leaving the answer in terms of the square root of 2 or pi fairly often, but I was learning calculus, not how to use a calculator.

I have never memorized what 6×7 is. Instead, I know that 6×6 is 36, and so I know 6×7 must be 6 more than that, which is 36+6, which is 42.

So he memorized 6×6 then? No! He ‘knows’ it! Totally different.

The point is that they have to know that 6×6=36 before they can get to “36+6”. I do x9 by multiplying by 10 and subtracting the number, but I was trying to teach math to 11th graders who had to sit and think about the answer to 7×10.

Oh, and they also didn’t memorize the addition tables. So they need their phone to add 6 to 36. Cuz people like the guy above had a theory about making math “fun”.

You cannot make everything in life fun. That’s why discipline and respect are so important.

I think math is fun because I like it. YMMV. I liked looking at the relationships on the multiplication table, but I learned that table before I could use relationships like subtracting 8 from 8×10 to figure out 8×9.

 

My grammar, and punctuation, suck; I. know that. In my defense, I bought a lot of commas, a few years ago, and they have an expiration date.

I had nuns making sure I knew English so I was good but if you don’t use something you lose it. I worked in places where good grammar was considered snooty and rude so I lost it. Which: leads us to-

Dependency Grammar!

a class of modern syntactic theories that are all based on the dependency relation (as opposed to the constituency relation) and that can be traced back primarily to the work of Lucien Tesnière. Dependency is the notion that linguistic units, e.g. words, are connected to each other by directed links.

That’s okay so far, I mean, if you’re going to get philosophical, I’ll give you that. To get to the point, they use that idiocy to teach grammar to kids.

Check that.

They use that idiocy to not teach grammar to kids. Just the way they use their idiocies to not teach math to kids.

Different methods of teaching grammar to kids!

One of the older forms of teaching grammar, diagramming sentences, first appeared in the 19th century. This method involves visually mapping the structures of and relationships between different aspects of a sentence. Especially helpful for visual learners, this method disappeared from modern teaching at least 30 years ago

Yeah, the way that we found that works, let’s stop using that!

Students are encouraged to explore language through creative writing and reading, picking up correct grammar usage along the way.

And right there is the difference between riding a tricycle, a bicycle with training wheels, a bicycle, a Honda 125, a Honda 500 and then a Honda Goldwing and “Here’s the key to the Harley, pick up how to ride it along the way”.

The Teaching is hard! Learning is easy! method:

The inductive method of teaching grammar involves presenting several examples that illustrate a specific concept and expecting students to notice how the concept works from these examples.

This guy is doing it right, these people are doing it wrong. Ready? Now do it!

I was actually with this one until the second sentence

The deductive method of teaching grammar is an approach that focuses on instruction before practice. A teacher gives students an in-depth explanation of a grammatical concept before they encounter the same grammatical concept in their own writing.

But then I realized they weren’t teaching anything, merely saying, “Here’s some stuff. Now look at that and tell me what’s wrong. Figure it out yourself. Geez, what do I look like, a teacher?” The tell is the word “concept”, that’s not an example, that’s a description.

And then I read further

This type of teaching, though common, has many people—including teachers—rethinking such methods, as more post-secondary level students are revealing sub-par literacy skills in adulthood. (emphasis me V, cuz it’s anger-inducingly, anger-inducive)

Well that’s surprising! Both that our children isn’t learning and that it’s still common. Educrats have a theory and if you’re kids have to pay, well, that’s the price they’re willing to make us all pay.

Another method of teaching grammar is to incorporate interactivity into lessons. Using games to teach grammar not only engages students but also helps them to remember what they’ve learned.

Once again, it starts pretty well, I’m all into interactivity, but then veers off into idiocy.

If you are not teaching the basics they cannot learn the advanced material.

How can you know to have agreement between object and predicate if you don’t know what an object is? Or a predicate. Or what I mean by “agreement”.

 

A repost

She knows her son is a lesbian trapped in a boy’s body, because that would be Awesome! Baroness Munchausen by proxy!

Shit like that is rewarded instead of having her lose her kids, all visitation rights and any contact with children.

 

This is even more horrific than the above. It’s one of the most horrible things I could imagine.

Janet Reimer was granted her dearest wish: she gave birth to twins…(perfect control group! V)

Then things went horrible.

were sent to the local hospital for a routine circumcision. Unfortunately the doctor in charge of the procedure was using electrical equipment, which malfunctioned several times. On the last trial, Bruce’s entire penis was burnt off. Brian was not operated on. The family were distraught. In the Sixties plastic surgery was not an option: even today it is not recommended that new-borns undergo penis reconstruction operations…

Then, they went more horrible as a horrible person preyed on their tragedy.

saw a television programme that gave them some hope. Dr John Money, a highly renowned sexologist, featured in a debate about sex change operations on transsexuals. He had brought a transsexual with him who was convincingly feminine looking…

Then other lefties prayed on their tragedy.

Nurture not nature determines whether we feel feminine or masculine. Widely cited in many text books, the case was a landmark study – hailed as proof of the overwhelming force of nurture..

Of course, the “Dr” was still preying

He insisted that to fully understand that she was a girl (the poor kid who had his johnson cut off V)…

A reprieve

Finally when she (he you assholes V) was 13, the family told her (him you assholes V) and Brian the truth. Brenda was intensely relieved as she (he you assholes V) had felt she (he you assholes V) was going insane. Almost immediately she (he you assholes V) turned herself (himself, you assholes V) back into a boy and called herself (himself, you assholes V)  David. David received compensation money for the circumcision…(huh V) (no, I should have said, “duh” V)

Before the end of the tragedy

before driving to a supermarket car park on 4 May 2004 and shooting himself in the head. He was 38 years old.

Did our hero learn anything from his experiment?

Dr Money argues that he cannot be held to blame because David did not accept a female gender identity.

And then blames the parents… but not for trusting him, for not trusting him!

He says that the family delayed making a decision until their son was almost two, just before the gender gate was about to shut.

Way to twist the knife dude.

What that BBC article leaves out is pretty horrific.

This allowed Money to experiment on Bruce while using Brian as a control.

I noticed that above, but the BBC did not see fit to mention it.

It’s also hard to find this because most “journalists” do not think it’s relevant apparently.

However, aged 38 he committed suicide, 2 years after his twin also killed himself.

So sad.

It is believed that they both committed suicide because of the methodology used by Money and his impact on their life

Ya think?

So what happened to this savage, barbaric, modern-day Dr. Mengele?

Money was a professor of pediatrics and medical psychology at Johns Hopkins University from 1951 until his death.

This is that extra twist we expect.

He also established the Johns Hopkins Gender Identity Clinic

The twist they use when they’re pulling their bayonet out of your guts. Don’t hold it against him that his theories are idiotic rubbish, he cared! Just because a family (one that we know of V) was destroyed over this, it’s not his fault! If only they had trusted him more!

So no matter the horror, death and despair he left behind him, he was a professor of pediatrics and medical psychology at Johns Hopkins University until he died in 2006. In other words, when the twins whose lives he ruined killed themselves he was a respected professor at John Fucking Hopkins instead of what he deserved.

 

Now we’ve had a couple generations of kids taught by people with theories who used them as lab rats, some places are far worse than others.

Many had parents who cared enough to do something something and some were those who avoided the obstacles to learning and learned by themselves so they did learn, but many did and are not.

The conclusion, let’s let FrnakJ explain again

Now let’s talk about present day.(11) Inevitably, as time as past, the number of finite good ideas out there have been discovered, and thus there is less and less chance that any liberal will have anything worth saying. Ergo, the ideas they do propose now are increasingly idiotic. And, now only using the weapons of derision to stop them, they strive by sealing themselves off from outside input, huddling together in small enclaves protected form the light of reason. They’re like cockroaches, hiding in the walls, and occasionally emerging from the shadows to wreak havoc.

Or they become judges.

Anyway, liberals are out there, and their ideas are more and more chaotic. And, though everyone calls them idiots, instead of taking the logical conclusion and realizing they are idiots, they think only they are right and all others are wrong and must be crushed.

They cannot admit, even..especially to themselves that they are wrong, so that’s why a discredited method of teaching grammar is still “common”, that’s why people are still arguing against memorizing addition and multiplication tables.

Unfortunately, he wrote this before Obama became God-President, before the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party was in full swing and before FrnakJ had kids.

Oh, the horrors they would subject us to if only they had the power.

Lucky for us, though, their main weapon is the whine.

It was so much better when their only power was the whine.

Oh well. At least now they’re sending their smelly foot-soldiers to attack us so we can kick their asses under the perfectly legal right of self-defense.

So don’t forget, let them take the first swing!

Cause

Effect

This is a sight to behold. Watch as unarmed protestors in Venezuela lose all fear and rush a line of armed oppressors.

Well, it would be a site to behold if only our fine minitrue betters weren’t ignoring the murderous dictator in Venezuela cuz he’s trying Socialism, they’re hoping he gets it right this time (you can tell if they’re doing it right by the height of the piles of bodies).

 

The Norks Are Yelling At China!!!!!!!!!!

North Korea condemned China in strong language, in the latest sign of a growing rift between Beijing and the Kim Jong Un regime over North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.

Cuz China is reasonable and looking for peace in the region but Trump and the Norks are being unreasonable!

Chinese Finance Minister Xiao Jie skipped a trilateral meeting with his Japanese and South Korean counterparts in Yokohama on Friday..

ADB President Takehiko Nakao, a former top Japanese currency diplomat, has sought to dispel the view that Japan and China are competing for influence, saying on Thursday his institution seeks to cooperate – not compete – in the region.

The talks came amid escalating tensions in North Korea, which moderated some of the optimism policymakers held over Asian’s economic outlook.

 

Oh, China has a plan for economic cooperation in the region. They’re building up their military and those islands they built in the South China are a good cause celebre’ for creating closer cooperation. Maybe they could call it the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere.

I know I’m the minority in this, but I really just do not see how people can say that the Norks are not the plausible-deniability province of China. Everything they do must be looked at in the view that they’re doing what China wants them to do.

 

The Islamic Veil (and all its permutations) is a sign of modesty! The women want to wear it and it’s western cultural imperialism to force women to take off their veils!

Dozens of black veils dotted a freshly laid sand berm in northern Syria, ditched by women fleeing the Islamic State group’s bastion of Raqa as US-backed fighters close in…

“Most of the women tear off their robes and burqas as soon as they arrive at our positions,” an SDF fighter said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

“Some of the women stomp on the robes because they finally feel safe and are finished with Daesh,” he added, using the Arabic acronym for IS.

So what you’re saying is that women do not like to be treated as property? Really? Even brown women? Surely the wogs don’t feel that way?!?!?!??!

It’s funny how reality always does the opposite of what our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters claim it will.

 

Let’s illustrate why Veeshir hates to fly.

Delta Air Lines has apologised after a couple were threatened with having their children put in foster care during a row with flight staff.

The operator said it was “sorry for the unfortunate experience”

Oh, so they apologized? What might have caused that?

after Brian and Brittany Schear posted a video online showing them being told to leave their flight or be arrested during a dispute over a spare seat they had bought.

At one point, a member of Delta staff can be heard telling the family: “This is a federal offence and then you and your wife will be in jail and your kids will be in foster care.”

Cuz it was advertised. How many times do you think something similar happens every, single day?

Airline folks know they have the power of the police state behind them so they can wipe their asses on you with impunity. No, not with impunity, with punity as they ensure all your orifices get probed if you do not Respect Their Authoritah!

 

All The News That’s Fit To Slant!

Headline

Why People Continue to Believe Objectively False Things

Hmmm, I wonder why that could be

“Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts,” goes the saying — one that now seems like a relic of simpler times.

Wait for it….wait for it….

Today, President Trump is sticking with his own facts — his claim that the Obama administration wiretapped him during the election

It’s not often the NY Times so accurately reports on the news, they show in the second paragraph why so much of their readership believes idiotically false things.

The Justice Department obtained a secret court-approved wiretap last summer on Carter Page, a foreign policy adviser to Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign,

More lies from the NY Times.

A New York Times correspondent falsely reported Thursday on Twitter that members of the House of Representatives unanimously voted to exempt themselves from the Republican health care bill.

Hey, those readers aren’t going to believe objectively false things unless the NY Times keeps pushing them!

 

So the GOP hasn’t capitulated, that would imply there were actually thinking about resisting the Dems.

I clicked a “related link” on one of the recent posts about a previous Big Budget Blowout!

Let’s look at a comment from a few years ago by Storm Saxon’s Gall Bladder (who I haven’t seen in a while) during the Reign of Obama!

So i will fall back on the basic philosophies which have guided me soundly through life:
There is no problem which cannot be solved by a suitable application of high explosives.

A President (not this one, obviously) must direct military demolitions teams to blow up all the computers which process the SS, M and M systems and all their hundreds of terabytes of redundant backed up data. They can strike on a four day holiday weekend, pick up their Presidential pardons and be home grilling spotted owls in a welfare-free world by Monday afternoon. The President will make a brief speech to the effect of “y’all best find a way on your own,” and then tell the EPA and Education Department that they are scheduled for Wednesday.

Boom, baby. Problems mostly solved, except for the whining.

Trump has the balls, it would be awesome.

He has to see the GOP is not going to help him, if he sticks with them he’ll be a one-term POTUS. Hell, they’re probably going to lose a lot of seats in Congress in the next election, they were elected for a purpose and they’re not doing it.

News from years ago!

INTELLIGENCE REPORTS RAISE QUESTIONS ABOUT OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SURVEILLANCE

Raise questions, get some information out despite the minitrue ban on making Obama look bad.

333 of one, half a devil of the other.

 

This one is like an onion or an ogre, it has layers and stinks. It also makes me laugh.

From the woman who had a Dem operative ‘meet’ her in the woods so her minitrue toadies could write articles about her ‘coming out of the woods’, we see the next totally spontaneous Hillary attempt at getting her ! back.

First layer, now that the Dems are not in power, they have a budget!

The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) on Tuesday unveiled its “People’s Budget,” offering a vision of economic equality and fairness that comes in sharp contrast to the Trump administration’s “slash-and-burn approach to governing based on ideological extremism.”

The People’s Budget: A Roadmap for the Resistance

Second layer, The People’s Budget! We can drive our brand new People’s truck across the bridge, and plaster the words of the Chairman on every tree, rock, and animal for miles until we run out of the People’s gas!

Third layer, they’re going to be The Resistance! You know who else is going to join the resistance? In a Christiane Amanpour tongue bath, Hillary blames all and sundry for her loss but here’s where we get our synergy.

“I’m now back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance,

The Resistance!

 

News From Last Year!

Hillary to build political group aimed at taking down Trump

Hillary-Trump II, this time there’s no voting but it’s hilariouser!

 

They’re not illegal, they’re Above The Law!

Prosecutors have dropped rape charges against two immigrant teens — one in the country illegally — because their alleged victim’s story fell apart…

“At no point did the girl express any reluctance with any sex acts,” said Sanchez Milian’s attorney Andew Jezic. “From the night before, she actively planned a sexual encounter.”

The bitch was askin fer it!

Ninth-graders Jose Montano, 17, and Henry Sanchez Milian, 18

17 and 18 year old “9th graders”, the girl, which the Post helpfully does not tell us, is 14.

Aren’t the ages listed statutory rape? So even if the bitch was askin fer it, it’s illegal. Right? But since they’re undocumented felons, they can get away with..anything.

 

My rent is going up from $430 to $550 so I’m moving closer to Phoenix. Plus I think my neighbors don’t like me.

It was nice living out here when it was so cheap but I can pay close to the new rent and not live 45 minutes from everywhere.

So as I’m scouring Craigslist for apartments,

Another suggested lure is advertising a studio apartment for rent, small enough to not “attract large families,” and capture and kill the interested tenants. “It might even help to include in the ad that the apartment is ‘ideal for students,'” ISIS adds.

 

Eh, at least it’s Constitutional carry in AZ so I’ll be able to return fire. I’m not going to take a studio, but I am looking at 1 and 2 bedroom cheapies.

 

Chop his head off and you’ll really see something!

“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.

Nice handbasket though.

Imagine trying to explain this to say, Ben Franklin or Tom Paine. That’s a site called, “Law Officer”, I assume it’s for cops.

So Providence pols passed a law and the cops are upset. I’ll be in italics.

Here are some of the items that the future victims of Providence Crime need to be aware of:

  1. Traffic stops can no longer be used as probable cause to investigate further criminal activity. (Good. I don’t see how me having a broken tail light means you can give me a tonsillectomy by going in through my ass.)

  2. Police may not ask for identification more than once including “police may not consider an individual’s lack of proof of identification or failure to respond to a request for identifying information as probable cause or reasonable suspicion of criminal activity.” (Good. Your Papers Please! annoys me. Show me the law that says I need to carry ID to make a cop happy)

  3. Police may not photograph anyone below the age of 18 and if a photo (under certain guidelines) is allowed, it must be destroyed in 90 days. (Why are cops photographing anybody? if you have a mugshot, that’s one thing)

  4. “Police may not inquire about an individual’s immigration status.” (Good, if that’s before being arrested, See #2, not good if it’s after)

  5. There is an entire appeal process for anyone listed as a gang member to not be listed as a gang member.  (Oh no! You mean if you cops make a mistake someone can get off your list? This makes me wonder what official status this “gang list” has. I can see having it listed on his mugsheet that he’s been connected with gang activity but what’s the ‘gang list’? Unless you’re going after a specific gang and need a list of its members.)

  6. “If an individual has no convictions within a two-year period after their name has been placed on the “gang list,” and no new evidence meeting the criteria for inclusion on the “gang list” has been found, the name shall be removed and all related records destroyed.” (I’m not sure what this ‘gang list’ is, but if it has official status, I’d like to see the statute that gives it that status. If it’s like the No-Fly list, well, I don’t like “Lists” that restrict freedom that do not involve convictions)

 

I really don’t like 1 and 2 and that “gang list” sort of scares me.

This is fucked up. I try to stay informed but I had no idea this was going on.

The Maduro regime is killing young Venezuelans in order to provoke a violent response for the opposition… Rather than falling into the trap, nonviolent opposition is organizing a nonviolent silent march later today to remember those killed and demand justice…

Shooting young Venezuelans in the head to terrorize demonstrators and provoke a response has been a Maduro regime tactic since at least February 2014.

Beginning on February 12, 2014 regime agents shot Bassil Alejandro Dacosta, age 24 in the head. One of the young students who carried Bassil off after he was shot was Robert Redman, age 28, who reported later that day over twitter: “Today I was hit with a rock in the back, a helmet in my nose. I swallowed tear-gas, Carried the kid who died, and what did you do?” That same day he was also gunned down by Maduro’s colectivos, working in concert with his security forces, and murdered. The killings continued.

A few of the victims.

I hate murderous dictators. I really do.

I also hate our fine media betters who are busy either whitewashing their progressive hero or ignoring his bodycount.

 

It’s funny, when others say this they’re called haters.

Doctor accused of mutilating genitals of young girls defends procedure as religious practice.

Although from what I know, it’s not religious, it’s used by the cultures who did it before Islam.

 

Remember when the Berkeley cops let their fascists attack people for speech they don’t like?

No, not that time, the other time. No, not that time.  I’m talking about Milo. Geez.

Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin is a member of the anti-fascist (sic) Facebook group, By Any Means Necessary, which orchestrated the riots that occurred ahead of a scheduled lecture by Milo Yiannopoulos.

Does that show collusion? I mean, it’s California and they were stopping speech CA doesn’t like, but I sometimes like to think about what a country with a rule of law and a Constitution would do.

 

It’s funny how our worldly lefties just do not understand the rest of the world.  Fake black person goes to Africa, Africans do not think it’s funny that whitey claims to be black.

Police flanked Ms Dolezal’s first key note event after a hostile meeting with mostly black students who objected to her insistence that she had ‘an authentic black identity’ despite admitting to being ‘biologically white’.

In South Africa. That’s funny.

I will say I agree with her here.

The shamed black activist, who now calls herself Nkechi Amare Diallo, outraged her young black audience in Johannesburg after equating her claim to being ‘trans-black’ with the trans-gender experience of Caitlyn Jenner.

Both are ridiculous people with mental health issues who are using their “condition” to make money and get on TV and should not be “praised”.

I disagree with this guy.

One member of the audience in Johannesburg mocked Ms Dolezal by saying ‘only a white person could claim blackness and tour the world talking to blacks about blackness’

 

Don’t blame that shit on whitey, I’d say it takes a lefty to condescend that much.

 

Little known Bible fact. Moses loved surfing.

Have I cursed at this shit so much I’m just recursiving?

Eh, fuck it. Let’s see what the hell is going on. (spoiler alert: It’s lies and bullshit)

 

Yawn, once again we prove Trump’s “Unsubstantiated!!!!! Claims!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” but that’s not really the point.

The dossier has also been cited by FBI Director James Comey in some of his briefings to members of Congress in recent weeks, as one of the sources of information the bureau has used to bolster its investigation, according to US officials briefed on the probe.

Wait, isn’t Comey the one who wanted someone else to tell America there was no wiretapping of Trump’s peeps?

Just to show exactly how unfuckingsubstantiated Trump’s claims are, another link!

The FBI last year used the controversial “Trump/Russia dossier” as part of its justification to obtain a FISA warrant on Carter Page, CNN reported on Tuesday.

They’re trusting CNN, which is usually shoddy journalism, but it feels right. And by that I mean it tells us what we already knew.

 

High Praise to Harvey for finding this next link.

Color me utterly unfuckingcaring with a soupçon of Fuck Em and a heaping helping of Ha-Ha

Due to this situation, the Soros-funded think tank said that increased deportations (us kicking out illegal aliens V) will likely increase violence in an already crime-ridden region.

In recommendations to the U.S. government, the group wrote that the Trump administration should “refrain from instigating mass deportations or harsher anti-migration measures” against immigrants from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.

 

Exporting your vicious, murderous criminals to America: It’s not just for Islamic Shithole countries anymore!

 

Wait, murderous, commie dictators steal stuff from capitalists?

General Motors has stopped doing business in Venezuela after authorities took control of a factory in what GM called an illegal judicial seizure of its assets.

Once again, color me utterly unfckingsurprised. One point, it’s their country, their courts and their judiciary, that makes it perfectly legal.

I can’t wait until the murderous, commie dictators in China start taking Apple’s shit. That’s gonna be fucking high-larious.

 

So the murderous Syrian dictator had a little ceasefire/reconciliation deal. Since it’s the Middle East, you know what that means!

The L.A. Times is reporting that the Syrian government used weapons of mass destruction in a zone created by “reconciliation deals.” Rebels in other contested regions were given safe passage to the zone if they would leave. After the rebels moved they were attacked.

Your Shoelaces Are Untied!

 

I was going to scale these up in levels of “horrific” but I’m not sure if there’s a real ladder, they’re all pretty fucking horrific. Some are just directly so while others are more subtly horrific in that they illustrate where we are as a society and civilization.

 

This is horrifically hilarious. Our fine social, moral, intellectual and political betters seem bound and determined to make Chelsea Clinton The Great Blight Hope!.

Hyping the entertainment magazine’s latest cover, Co-Editor-in-Chief Claudia Eller gushed this week, “How cool does Chelsea Clinton look on our Power of Women, NY, cover?”

Welcome to the liberal media’s manufacturing of “cool.” Leather jacket? Check. Overzealous airbrushing? Check. Humanizing grin? Check. Democratic establishment pedigree? Checkity-check-check.

This is just the latest attempt by The Media Resistance to make Chelsea Clinton a thing. The same liberal lunatics in the press who rage about the Trump children’s nepotistic privileges champion the “refreshingly outspoken” daughter of the Clinton dynasty — who, at 37 years old, will receive a “Lifetime Impact” award from Variety on Friday for her “humanitarian work.”

That sad, drab, personalityless scion is just pathetic, I can’t even work up a dislike, which says a lot since I’ve been a member of the VRWC since before Hillary identified it.

 

This one seems less horrible, but this is an “Elite!!” college where our Elite Meet To Compete!. As a teacher in a few high schools, I’ve met more Drs of Lefty  Studies who cannot even speak English, much less write it. “This is where your classroom is at.” Sigh.

This is the intro, They call it “Hudson U” but for the record, I’d bet it was NYU, YMMV.

The author of the following essay is a Professor at a top-ranking, metropolitan U.S. university. The names of both university and professor have been fictionalized to protect the professor from retaliation.

So he cannot talk about what they’re doing for fear of retaliation. They are fundamentally incapable of change.

Just to be clear, most of my faculty colleagues are well-educated, bright, and dedicated teachers

The rest of the article belies that statement. Like this

Some of the faculty members with less than impressive credentials hold positions of significant authority in terms of curriculum development. They serve as chairs of various sub-programs within academic units, and have influence over curricula, both within and beyond the program.

Those are the people in charge. They’ll hire people even more stupider to make themselves look better in a positive-reinforcement that will (is?) oscillate (ing?) out of control.

In a more recent election for writing curricular chair, my competitor accused me in his mission statement of writing books and publishing essays. He treated these as blemishes or sins that somehow disqualified me for the position. “I haven’t written any textbooks. I don’t like textbooks. I don’t have a Ph.D. or scores of academic, scholarly publications to my name,” he wrote

So having the necessary skills for the job is bad. Elite!

Let’s end on this, I could do a full post on this article but it’s just not worth it.

I mentioned that I had received an email from one of the candidates and shared it with the committee members. …

The candidate could not write. I also pointed back to her application letter, which was similarly awkward and error-laden. My committee colleagues argued that “we do not teach grammar” in our writing classes.

There’s your problem right there.

 

Now, I knew why Ann Coulter wanted to go to Berkeley (for all the publicity and hilarity of violent, immature, fascists), but I couldn’t figure out why Berkeley wanted her to come. I mean, they’re not in the free speech and listening to other points of view business.

This link is really only horrific for this line.

Bestselling author and conservative firebrand Ann Coulter scheduled for an April 27 speaking engagement at the University of California, Berkeley, home of the Free Speech Movement decades ago and now the home of the Totalitarian Anti-Speech Movement, but the event has been canceled due to security concerns. That’s not stopping Coulter, however, who intends to proceed with the event anyway, according to The Washington Examiner. (emphasis me V)

That was then, this is the Glorious Now!, free speech is only for the right (left) people!

 

The most horrific story you’ll read all day (so long as you stop reading after this post I guess, it’s ugly out there)

A Georgia teen accused in the brutal slaying of her grandparents earlier this month partied with her boyfriend in their house while the bodies began to rot, according to officials.

Police said that Cassandra Bjorge, 17, and her boyfriend Johnny Rider, 19, sealed the doors and windows to contain the stench of the decomposing bodies so they could throw a party at the home in Lawrenceville, Georgia.

How do you get evil like that?

 

A little horrific chuckler.

It’s 21st century horrific, I call it, “Don’t worry, I saw this in a Three Stooges Movie!

A man fell to his death on Tuesday while trying to evade arrest by rappelling 11 stories down a Brooklyn apartment building using a rope of tied-together bed sheets.

Dude.

 

Nother one that could be titled, “I saw this in a Three Stooges Movie” where someone pretends to be dead to get out of paying a bill.

An elderly man has died while receiving a lap dance at a strip club in Texas…

The club’s manager said White was ‘unresponsive’ when his dance finished, and after the dancer initially thought the sexagenarian could have been trying to get out of paying his bill,

 

Or was that a Marx Brothers movie? Eh either way, if he had just stuffed his last $20 into a strippers g-string he might have met his life goal. You can’t take it with you after all.

 

How can you tell Britain’s economy is in the shitter?

Willy Wonka got towed.

 

Below the fold, some hottasery. It’s been a while.
