While we’re waiting for a new song, let’s look back at 20th century man.

Although…

Ain’t got no ambition, I’m just disillusioned
I’m a twentieth century man but I don’t want to be here.
My mama said she can’t understand me
She can’t see my motivation
Just give me some security,
I’m a paranoid schizoid product of the twentieth century.

He’s not all that different from 21st century man.

Well, except for the fact that a johnson is no longer required for man-hood.

 

I just hope they spent enough infrastructure money on bike paths so people can escape!

Spillway repairs at the troubled Oroville Dam will get their first major test this weekend, as meteorologists have revised their forecast and are now predicting a much wetter and warmer storm outlook…

“It looks like it’s going to be a pretty good rainmaker,” said NWS meteorologist Mike Smith. “You’re looking at 10 inches from Sunday night to Monday night.”

Only in CA could they screw up hydraulic despotism.

 

Now, the media lies, but I hope this is true.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is cleaning house at the State Department, according to a report.

Staffers in the offices of deputy secretary of state for management and resources as well as counselor were shown the door Thursday, according to CBS News.

Many of those let go were on the building’s seventh floor — top-floor bigs — a symbolically important sign to the rest of the diplomatic corps that their new boss has different priorities than the last one.

If there’s one place that needs to be cleaned up it’s the State Dept.

 

Speaking of the lying liars in the media…

 

Will a judge’s ruling Against CNN Make It Easier to Sue the Media?

Since they show such malice in their ‘mistakes’, I’d say they deserve it. Reckless disregard is one thing, they’re malicious.

I love this bit

Before Trump was elected president, we suggested that his threats necessitated a federal anti-SLAPP law.

Before Trump you might have had a chance to convince people the media weren’t being malicious and abusing their Constitutional protections, now everybody’s pointing and laughing and if all you assholes get sued out of existence you have only yourselves to blame.

I’m not really fer it, but I’m also not really agin it. Karma being a bitch can be very darn funny.

 

Three looks at Trump’s presser yesterday.

Trump Cheers His Own Epic Press-Conference Rant Against The Media!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

President Trump took a victory lap Friday morning, boasting about the kudos he received following his meandering press conference the day before…

Many critics noted how bizarre the 75-minute-long presser was, but conservative talker Limbaugh cheered the Republican president.

“Many Critics” screech no matter what he does.

But other members of the media were not as flattering about the presser,…

Yeah, the butthurt was epic.

 

The other look. Sorry media, this press conference played very differently with Trump’s supporters. (Do tell)

The president proved once again that he is the greatest show on Earth. Lions and tigers and elephants are kid stuff next to his high wire act.

Next time, the White House ought to sell popcorn.

If Trump started selling popcorn the deficit would be gone by June.

Trump’s detractors immediately panned the show as madness, but they missed the method behind it and proved they still don’t understand his appeal. Facing his first crisis in the Oval Office, he was unbowed in demonstrating his bare-knuckle intention to fight back…

In front of cameras, and using the assembled press corps as props, he conducted a televised revival meeting to remind his supporters that he is still the man they elected. Ticking off a lengthy list of executive orders and other actions he has taken, he displayed serious fealty to his campaign promises.

And they just cannot fucking understand that last bit. He’s actually doing what he promised the rubes!?!?!?!?!?! Doesn’t he know that’s not how things are done?

 

Speaking of butthurt and bias, Shep!

Shep, of course, is fresh off calling Trump a liar because he talked about illegal aliens voting, as you’d know if you read this blog. I ain’t looking for it.

“It is crazy what we are watching every day, it is absolutely crazy,” Smith said. “He keeps repeating ridiculous throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia as if we are some kind of fools for asking the question.”

As Paco says,

When you rant about not being a fool, the froth flying from your lips pretty much renders your claim null and void.

But then it wouldn’t be Shep!

 

 

EUnuch says,

European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker, claims that Brexit negotiations with the EU will be complex and take longer than the allotted two years.

Speaking on the sidelines at the international Munich Security Conference Junker added that Britain does not have the right to forge bilateral trade deals while still a member of the EU.

See Trump? That’s how you do it. Fuck Teh Peepul!

majority_large

 

And if you don’t like your own voters?

Keeping a Brexit-like scenario in mind, commission wants the voting rights for migrants and refugees at par with German citizens in any future referendum.

I just don’t think they’re thinking that through. Sure their serfs are revolting, but do they really want to replace them with more splodey ones?

 

I don’t really believe this, I’m just linking for the first line.

Palestine is many things. A Roman name and a Cold War lie. Mostly it’s a justification for killing Jews.

Succinct and accurate. Perfect.

What we think of as “Palestinian” terrorism was a low-level conflict pursued by the Arab Socialist states in between their invasions of Israel. After several lost wars, the terrorism was all that remained. Egypt, Syria and the USSR threw in the towel on actually destroying Israel with tanks and jets, but funding terrorism was cheap and low-risk. And the rewards were disproportionate to the cost.

For less than the price of a single jet fighter, Islamic terrorists could strike deep inside Israel while isolating the Jewish State internationally with demands for “negotiations” and “statehood.”

 

I just wish we had a competent, less-hatey media so that would discussed instead of just blatantly obvious. Of course, in EUnuchstan, saying stuff far more milquetoast will get you a hate-crimes trial, so it’s hard to talk about.

 

I’m so old I remember when the Dalai Lama was universally loved on college campuses!

Students at the University of California, San Diego are protesting an upcoming visit by the Dalai Lama – claiming the Tibetan leader is “oppressive”.

Seriously? Who’s he oppressing?

Chinese students are leading objections to the event,

Oh right, totally tolerant and peaceful murderous commies feel oppressed when people talk about their murderousness and commieness.

Send them back to fucking China. I hate apparatchiks for murderous commies taking advantage of our freedoms to try to deny it for others.

 

And who can forget Obama letting the Dalai Lama know what Obama’s murderously commie friends think of him.

messed-up

 

To spit on that guy for murderous commies just makes me sick.

Look at the smile. He has all the class Obama doesn’t and more.

 

Al Gore Predicts End of World From Global Worming!!!!

Wait, that was an old one. HERE’S THE WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE LINK!!!!!!!

Wait, that’s another old one. HERE’S THE RIGHT ONE FROM TODAY!!!!!!

Shoot, wrong one. Here’s the right link. Geez, there sure are a lot of WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!! predictions from Gorequemada. Are we dead yet? Because I thought Hell would be less funny.

I love this line.

But it was science – not politics – that carried the day.

No really, they were talking about global warmmongering when they wrote that. I can’t even keep a straight face just cuttin’ n’ pastin’, I don’t think I’d be able to actually write that.

In the climate and health meeting held at The Carter Center, Gore steered clear of mentioning Trump. Instead, he stressed that climate changes could render parts of the Middle East – including some of the holiest cities on the planet – uninhabitable. It could also cause deadly health problems and reduce life expectancy. Those in poverty will be hardest hit, he said.

Fakenewswers refuse to ask him about his earlier, stupid, predictions and yet, we’re supposed to trust him and them because The Science!!!!!! Is Settled!!!!!!!!

 

Why didn’t Jets fans think of this?

 

I didn’t realize the Kazakhstan military had women helicopter pilots!

A lorry driver in Kazakhstan has captured the moment when a military helicopter landed on a highway, in order to ask for directions.

How progressive!

 

This is cool. A 3-D look at all the space junk flying around Earth. You can zoom in and out.

 

California got $34 billion of stimulizing money that apparently didn’t go to the dam they’ve known for more than a decade was in danger.

Despite more than a decade of warnings about Oroville, there is no public record of the country’s tallest dam receiving any of the more than $34 billion from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act sent to California for infrastructure projects.

I absolutely love this bit

The California Department of Water Resources denied that it had failed to heed concerns about the emergency spillway.

“We have a very rigorous schedule of inspections that is determined by state and federal regulators,” said spokesman Eric See. “We actually do those inspections annually.”

So what you’re saying is that even though you inspected this dam and checked all the right boxes, it’s falling apart?!?!?!!? That can’t be!

Bureaucrats checking boxes is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical bureaucratic ceremony!

So what did they spend that infrastructure money on?

Thompson lauded numerous stimulus projects, which included $2.2 million for “more attractive” sidewalks and $2.5 million for a 205-acre “zero net energy” community on the University of California Davis campus to put a greater “emphasis on walking” and bicycling.

“zero net energy” means, “No modern infrastructure”, which is very Californian. They took infrastructure stimulizing money to create a place with no infrastructure while ignoring the dam that’s GONNA KILL THEM ALL!.

That’s dam funny. And dam endy as well. Glad I don’t live downstream.

 

This next link should have been first, but then the headline wouldn’t have made any sense. This is  fucking outrageous.

By now many of you know that Mike Strickland, a pro-gun, free lance journalist was convicted of  21 counts of self defense on Friday, Feb.10.

Strickland had been attacked by a mob in Portland while covering a “Black Lives Matter” protest. The attack was planned and coordinated in advance.

They went after this guy because in peaceful, tolerant Oregon you cannot go against the tolerance and love of lefties or they’ll fucking beat you into a coma or throw you in jail in a fully justified twisting of laws.

I’d excerpt more of it but it needs to be read in full. The scope of the railroading of this guy is breathtaking.

And the worst part? You know the majority of voters in that bastion of peace, love, inclusion and tolerance would be just happy to see this nazi get putsched.

 

So a few months ago Yellen was talking about negative interest rates, but that’s when she needed to keep interest rates down so it wasn’t so obvious how screwed we are over debt. Now, she needs to get a president impeached so here we are, watching our fine betters trying so hard to make him unpopular.

The financial world has been put on notice by the US central bank to get ready for interest rate rises, but there is still no word on when…

Yellen did warn about delaying rate hikes: “Waiting too long to remove accommodation would be unwise.

I hate the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party.

 

failure-theater

Ann Coulter occasionally goes over the top, but she also is usually spot on.

What have congressional Republicans been doing? Scrapbooking?

More than 90 percent of congressional Republicans kept their jobs after the 2016 election, so you can cross “staffing an entire branch of government” off the list….

The House passed six Obamacare repeals when Obama was president and there was no chance of them being signed into law.

Yup.

To the delight of the media, these frightened little lambs are appalled by nearly everything Trump does…

Way, way back, 15 long months ago, congressional Republicans didn’t have a problem with a total ban on Syrian and Iraqi refugees. Not for a mere three months like Trump’s order — but permanently…

That bill passed the House with an overwhelming, veto-proof majority, including 47 Democrats. Then it went to the Senate to die.

The establishment pricks of the GOP are not taking their comeuppance well.

 

More Failure Theater

Massie’s measure consists of only one sentence: “The Department of Education Shall Terminate on December 31, 2018.” He introduced it at the very same time U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was confirmed by the Senate.

I hope, but you know it won’t happen.

Nother, 1-line, bill.

Republican-backed legislation to eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is definitely one of the shortest bills Congress has dealt with in a while.

“The Environmental Protection Agency shall terminate on December 31, 2018” is all the bill says regarding EPA’s elimination. The bill’s preamble has more words than its legislative language.

And like the previous, it ain’t going anywhere.

 

So what’s the endgame of Failure Theater?

The Democrat Party really, really is dwindling away before our eyes. But don’t misunderstand me. It’s precisely because of this that the unelected Democrat Party, which is embedded in our nation’s bureaucracy, has taken over the role of the opposition party. And by that I mean all of the Obama appointees in the intelligence community. All of the Obama and Clinton appointees at the departments of justice, departments of state and the defense department, they are all there, and they are working to sabotage the administration of Donald Trump from within. They are doing this with the aid and cooperation of the media. (Don’t forget the GOP pricks like McCain! V)

Putting Teh Peepul in their place (at the feet of our fine moral, social, intellectual and political betters).

 

Speaking of putting Teh Peepul in their place, Orange Coast Community College slays me.  We’ve all seen the story about the kid who recorded his unhinged prof unhingedly attacking Trump ‘forcing’ the school to suspend him. What cracks me up is what he has to do to be readmitted to this fine institution.

To be allowed back in school, the letter says, O’Neil’s essay is to be three pages and double-spaced and must discuss why he videotaped the professor. Also, the essay is to cover his “thoughts and analysis” on why he decided to share the videos, what he thought would happen to Cox and “the impact of the video going ‘viral’ and the ensuing damage to Orange Coast College students, faculty and staff.”

Gee, it’s not as if he’s going to be able to go to another community college! I mean, there are so few of them!

He should write three pages, quadruple-spaced, and discuss how the admin in that community college are bunch of fascist assholes and thank them for letting him know he needed to go to another community college. Preferably in a different state.

 

 

High-larious!

dipoles

 

 

Why?

A Facebook chatbot is offering hapless men the words to charm any feisty feminist without causing offence.

No really, why?

The worst part is that something that could avoid causing offence to a feminist must be some powerful fucking software and they’re wasting it on talking to feminists.

That’s not funny!

First I’d like to ask a question, are Colts really three times better than S&W? I’ve never fired a Colt revolver but I really like S&W. I just don’t see how a used, stainless .44mag is $700 when it’s S&W but $1,500-$2500 when it’s Colt.

S&W is about $100+/- more than Ruger and I think that’s about right.

Is it just because they don’t make them anymore? Because I’ll tell you, unless the Colt comes with a happier ending than a S&W, I just can’t see it being worth that much more.

 

I wishfully hoped that they wouldn’t use all the terrorist-catching laws that were ONLY GOING TO BE USED TO CATCH TERRORISTS!!!!!!! on people who aren’t terrorists.

Law enforcement wants to charge a Perry County man with committing terrorist activity after he stole 911 communications equipment.

Frank Thomas Aldridge is in custody after breaking into a 911 communications building back on Dec. 9, 2016.

Aldridge found out he couldn’t resell the equipment he stole, so he threw it in a nearby creek.

I know, when I wishfully think I make an ass out of me and me. Especially when I wishfully think that gov’t folks won’t get all mission creepy.

 

France is trying to be my friend, I hope this isn’t just wishful thinking.

Leading French Presidential Candidate Emmanuel Macron has invited the entire US climate science community to relocate to France.

Thank you French socialist dude, I sincerely hope they take you up on your offer.

 

Romanians are wishing for a non-corrupt gov’t and thinking that they’re gonna have to stay serious to get it.  They’ve been protesting for about 2 weeks over

The decree, decriminalised the abuse of office in cases where the damages were less than 200,000 leu (about 43,200 euros) and was coupled with a mass pardon for non-violent convicts serving short jail terms.

What that means is that if a politician takes a bribe for less than about $50k, no harm no foul. And pols in jail would be let out.

Obviously, their gov’t is pretty similar to ours.

Despite the outrage over the proposed changes to the criminal code. the government is refusing to quit. It insists the public has misunderstood its reform bid

Yeah, we get that shit here too.

I wish them luck. Romanian pols might want to review history, Europeans do not get a Trump, they get a Hitler or a Ceausescu and light poles start to get decorated.

 

Via Cold Fury, we find this bit of hilarity.

A French street artist was severely beaten up in Paris after refusing to remove a work of art calling for coexistence between Islam, Judaism and Christianity.

When I mention the stupidity of those COEXIST signs, I’m called a hater, if you click you will see that the French media tried to obfuscate the issue, but it’s unobfuscatable. He should have stuck with the traditional form.

Fakenewser takes time off from fakenewsing to do a little affirmation/wishful thinking!

Headline

A new, liberal tea party is forming. Can it last without turning against Democrats?

I doubt it, why?

Grass-roots movements can be the life and death of political leaders.

Yeah, about that.

Political action committees that fundraised for President Barrack Obama during the 2012 presidential election, bused protesters to Republican town hall events nationwide earlier in February, according to a Sunday report from The Washington Post.

 

It makes it funnier that the Wash Post are the fakenewsers praising the TOTALLY GRASSROOTS!!!!!!  group while they also noticed that Obama was busing in those totally grassroots protestors.

Back to the original fakenews, so long as you think the Tea Party a top-down, paid for, astro-turfed group of rioters willing to travel around the country to get their violence and stupidity on then they’re spot on. Which is what they thought the tea party was.

 

What I can’t figure out is whether or not Canada gets any US TV channels.

U.S. border guards would get new powers to question, search and even detain Canadian citizens on Canadian soil under a bill proposed by the Liberal government.

As we’re trying to limit the power of the feds here the Canadians are giving our feds more power!?!?!?!

Don’t encourage them you idiots! It’s only going to make our job here more difficult! Idjits.

 

Speaking of Canadia, this bit of Tolerance Love and Peace is hilarious.

While the men prayed, she (Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne V) sat patiently in the back corner of the mosque waiting to say the words many in the room were so thankful to hear.

The words they were so thankful to hear? “We will adhere to the tenets of your religion.” Actually, she said something else, but you know what they heard.

She sat in a corner in the back of the mosque while the men fucking prayed and she didn’t fucking leave. She didn’t seem to even realize they were making sure she knew her place.

 

As we watch California flooding caused by corrupt, CA pols… global worming, let’s focus on what’s important.

I think I can help with this question.

Headline on a story about of the the ‘discoveries’ that global warmmongers lie.

How can we trust global warming scientists if they keep twisting the truth

 

You can’t. They lie.

 

You always become what you fight!

In an impassioned plea, Mr Cook, boss of the world’s largest company (CEO of Apple V), says that the epidemic of false reports “is a big problem in a lot of the world” and necessitates a crackdown by the authorities and technology firms.

 

Dammit, the dog must have taken my socks!

bad-dog

It just keeps staying stupid out there. Whodathunk we’d go from the Funniest End of Civilization Ever to the Stupidest End of Civilization Ever so quickly?

I’ve been trying to miss football, but the NFL has figured out a way to keep me from missing it.

A week after Houston celebrated hosting Super Bowl LI, the NFL says the state’s proposed transgender bathroom bill could affect whether Texas gets to do so again.

In its first statement since Senate Bill 6 was filed in January, the NFL has warned it will take into account the civil rights law of states before it chooses future event locations.

They  refuse to allow me just to enjoy their game.

 

This is just cruel

He asked HS kids ditching school why they were protesting. They weren’t really sure but really, did anybody expect anything different? They’re against going to school and for ditching school.

I’ve been wanting to ask this question, how is Jesse Watters different from Stuttering John? O’Reilly sends Watters out to ambush people with questions they don’t want to answer, that’s exactly how Howard used Stuttering John. Although….I don’t think Jesse Watters has ever asked Ted Williams if he farted in a catcher’s face.

 

I’m a little embarrassed I had to see this NY Post article at Innocent Bystanders,  I must have missed it yesterday.

Chadwick Moore, a 33-year-old journalist who lives in Williamsburg, had been a lifelong liberal. Then, last September, he penned a profile for Out magazine of Milo Yiannopoulos — a controversial alt-right extremist who is an outspoken critic of feminism, Muslims and gay rights (despite being openly gay himself). Although the Out story didn’t take a positive stance — or any stance — on Yiannopoulos, Moore found himself pilloried by fellow Democrats and ostracized by longtime friends.

Here, he tells Michael Kaplan his story — including why the backlash drove him to the right.

Dude’s in for a rough time. This is the de rigueur quote

I realized that, for the first time in my adult life, I was outside of the liberal bubble and looking in. What I saw was ugly, lock step, incurious and mean-spirited.

I’ve known a bunch of lefties, gay or not, who saw the same thing except they went back in. When we’re talking alone they’ll tell me that they’re afraid to go against their friends. They expect sympathy from me, they get confusion. How can you refuse to think for yourself?

Little bit of naivety

I hope to find out that it pays to keep an open mind.

And I hope that New Yorkers can be as open-minded and accepting of my new status as a conservative man as they’ve been about my sexual orientation.

Hope in one hand, jerk off in the other. See which hands gets sticky first.

 

I wonder if Dave Chappelle just destroyed his career (again)

Comedian Dave Chappelle has been prepping for his November 12 hosting slot on Saturday Night Live …

He was particularly agitated about what he believes was Clinton’s role in leaking a surreptitiously recorded conversation between Republican nominee Donald J. Trump and TV personality Billy Bush. “What I heard on that tape was gross,” Chappelle said. “But the way I got to hear it was even more gross. You know that came directly from Hillary.” He stated this had put him off a candidate he had already known was “not right.” He likened voting for her to a hypothetical situation of actress Halle Berry breaking wind in his face during sexual relations. “I’m still going to go for it,” he said. “But I wish she hadn’t done that thing.”

He notices one of the fake news things that all right (left) thinking people know to ignore.

Chappelle further shocked the New York crowd by defending Trump. He took issue with the media stating as fact that Trump had admitted committing sexual assault in the recorded conversation. “Sexual assault? It wasn’t. He said, ‘And when you’re a star, they let you do it.’ That phrase implies consent. I just don’t like the way the media twisted that whole thing. Nobody questioned it.”

Yeah see, maybe nobody you know questioned it, but that doesn’t mean nobody questioned it.

Good luck with the whole, losing all your friends, thing though.

 

Hungary does not want  those refugees. Headline and subhed

Bounty hunters chasing immigrants on horses, a 110-mile razor fence and bans on new mosques: ANDREW MALONE reports from the EU country whose brutal crackdown on Muslim migrants makes Trump look liberal
Laszlo Toroczkai, 47, and his bounty hunters have caught hundreds of migrants
He is mayor of Asotthalom, Hungary, a small town that borders Serbia
During the refugee crisis, thousands poured in across the unprotected border

Apparently, they have some experience with Muslim invasions

It is a debate in which Hungary is utterly uncompromising. To understand why, one must understand how Hungary’s bitter opposition to Muslims, stretching back centuries to the invasion and occupation by Ottoman Muslim rulers for 150 years until 1699.

 

But they’ll take those other refugees.

Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban has offered to open up his country to refugees – but only those seeking sanctuary from the liberal policies of western Europe….

“Of course we can give shelter to the real refugees: Germans, Dutch, French, Italians; scared politicians and journalists; Christians who had to flee their own country; those people who want to find here the Europe that they lost at their home,” he noted to applause.

Okay, that’s funny until you realize it’s not funny at all.

 

Tsar Putin I and Sultan Erdogan are playing Risk and it’s going swimmingly.

Intense fighting continues in and around al-Bab, a town of 100,000 people in northern Syria, with the Free Syrian Army forces supported by the Turks entering from the north, while Syrian regime forces enter from the south…

Syria is now split into areas controlled by one of four factions; ISIL, the Syrian government, the Free Syrian army, and the Kurds. Al-Bab is special because it is the only place in Syria where all four have significant forces in close proximity.

I’m sure that’s going to work out well. The Free Syrian Army forces are a hodgepodge of murderous terrorist groups that form, split and reform with explosive regularity, each splinter group hates everybody not of their splinter group. The Kurds are hated and hate all the rest, the Syrian gov’t forces hate the rest and ISIS, of course, hates everybody not a believer in their murderous interpretation of Islam. Some of the Free Syrian Army folks were formerly part of ISIS, and probably will be again. Getting into a war in Syria is even more stupider than being in a land war in Asia.

 

I’ve been wondering if this is going to get Russia and Turkey in a war, more hoping actually.

Turkish military tanks were spotted supporting the Sultan Murad Brigade in clashes with forces loyal to the Assad regime in the village of Um Al-Zindin, Syria, south of the Islamic State-held al-Bab

These are peoples who’ve hated each other for thousands of years, adding in differing, murderous ideologies has just given them another reason to kill each other so no matter what the end game is going to be murderously confused.

 

Catalonia has another referendum on independence from Spain this year and Spain is acting all upset.

I have to wonder if all these referendums are failure theater or if they’re actually trying to accomplish it.

If Catalonia gets independent, can Basque independence be far behind? Will we see a Basque/Catalonian nation formed between Spain and France? Maybe two, smaller countries? Will we see a three sided civil war? Should be funnier than their last civil war, fewer Nazis.

 

Remember that fashion designer from the other day? I found some even more ridiculous looking outfits for guys!

(more…)

In most of these articles, you can see chickens and roosting being involved. Like the first one.

Trump nixes some guy named Elliot for State.

This is a loss for the State Department and the country and, for that matter, for the President,” said one Republican source.
Another Republican source with knowledge of what happened said Abrams would not get the job because of “Donald Trump’s thin skin and nothing else.”

Love the “Republican sources”, I figure McCain, McConnell and some more of the Rino brigade.

So…Trump’s thin skin? What does Elliot have to say about Trump?

So here’s a first lesson: Do not allow the Republican convention to be a coronation wherein Trump and Trumpism are unchallenged. There’s no reason others who won many delegates, from Rubio to Cruz to Kasich, should not have their names put in nomination. The party needs to be reminded that there are deep divisions, and Trump needs to be reminded of how many in the party oppose and even fear his nomination…

First we need to make sure that Trump knows he’s a particularly crappy candidate.

I love this bit

There’s a second lesson: Watch out about the vice presidency and accepting other forms of favor from Trump

So….. would those “other forms of favor” be a job at the State Dept? Have the courage of your convictions establishment GOP dude.

Sorry, I know establishment GOP dudes have no convictions.

And a fourth lesson: Seize the party machinery back immediately after the Trump defeat.

 

Ahhh, so this guy wanted to make sure that Trump was jettisoned, he specifically told people not to work with Trump (don’t take VP or other slots).

I’d say that maybe, contra fakenewser/CNN, Trump decided he didn’t need another asshole who hates him working for him.

 

Eric at Classical Values found a PJ O’Rourke link. PJ, fresh from endorsing Hillary, says

The election of 2016 was terrible because it wasn’t an election, it was a rebellion. America is having a civil war, or, to be more accurate, a War of Incivility. The war is not between Republicans and Democrats or between conservatives and progressives. The war is between the frightened and what they fear.

As I wrote at Eric’s, no, it’s between the pissed-off and who pissed us off. But by all means PJ, keep explaining how I’m a hating hater who is afraid and if I was just smarter I could be smart enough to have voted for Hillary fucking Clinton.

I’ll give you a hint PJ, unless Hitler shows up, Clintons are always the greater of two evils.

 

CNN is all excited, Anger Erupts At Republican Town Halls!!!!!!

Mike Carlson, a 32-year-old student from Antioch, Tennessee, said that as an overweight man, he depended on Obamacare to stay alive.
“I have to have coverage to make sure I don’t die. There are people now who have cancer that have that coverage, that have to have that coverage to make sure they don’t die,” Carlson said. “And you want to take away this coverage — and have nothing to replace it with! How can I trust you to do anything that’s in our interest at all?”

Oh, so they’re against getting rid of Obamacare, I’m gonna have to go out on a limb and say that they’re the same assholes rioting and feloniously destroying property around the country.

How can I say that? Would you say a “32-year old student” whining about someone else paying for his health-care is the demographic of felonious rioting? I thought that you would.

 

Connecticut is interesting, it has some parts that are the homes of rich folks, Greenwich for instance, and other’s that are homes of poor folks, Bridgeport for instance. So how do they balance rights for rich and poor?

To address Connecticut’s $3.6 billion shortfall, Malloy has suggested increasing permits from $70 to $300, a more than 420 percent increase. He also suggested raising the initial 5-year pistol permit fee from $140 to $370, a more than 250 percent increase. In addition, Malloy wants to increase the background fee from $50 to $75.

Of course, the revenues they claim they’ll get from this won’t be what they get since many of the people who would have bought a permit won’t as it’s too expensive for poor Connecticuticans. Which is probably the goal, keep guns out of poor folks hands. Since they’re Democrats, they can shit on the poor guilt-free because Democrats care.

 

Chickens, roost, no assembly required.

Criminals trying to recruit students. Brawls between different ethnic groups. Drug dealing. Welcome to the prestigious Värnhem School in central Mälmo, which won the 2015 ‘Peace Prize’ for taking in the most “newly arrived pupils” (immigrants).

Whodathunkthat? I mean, besides anybody not willfully ignorant.

 

When I first saw this

A professor at Georgetown University is teaching his students that men do not need consent to have sex with women, and that slavery is justifiable under Islamic teachings.

I thought, “Wow! How did this right-winger actually manage to work at Georgetown and then speak the truth about Islam?”

But then I read this

but the lecturer moved its focus to criticize the United States, United Kingdom and China. Brown described slavery in these non-Muslim societies as brutal, which they were, but lauded the historically inhumane practice in Arab lands and Turkey…

Brown stated that slaves were “protected by Sharia,” omitting the various atrocities committed by slave-owners. Girls and women were forced into the sex trade and their male counterparts were often castrated.

and I realized, he’s not a right winger bashing Islam, he’s an Islamist praising it. That’s fucking funny.

I wonder how good Georgetown’s doublethink is, they might have to actually pay attention to this guy saying all the stuff that’s hate-speech when I point it out.

 

Speaking of slavery, lefty doublethink and murderous ideologies, New 5-star hotel to open in Havana!

Imagine, if you’re not Cuban and you have plenty of disposable income, you could stay in this new luxury hotel.

But you’d better hurry and get there before Castrogonia “loses its purity.”

Never mind the fact that this building was stolen from its rightful owners, the Gómez-Mena family.  It was built by “wealthy businessman” José Gómez-Mena Vila between 1890 and 1918.

I hope for the same thing I hope for in relation to people doing business in China,

In Castrogonia, there can only be one owner: Castro, Inc., and the Swiss cretins who will manage this hotel could be in for a surprise down the line.

Their investment in this totally revolting venture is as subject to confiscation as anything else in Castrogonia.

Yup. Those are some chickens I want to peck the shit out of those assholes when they roost.

I want all the assholes who use commie-slave labor, like Apple, to get fucked. Good, deep and hard, go bankrupt and then get sodomized by Berkeley protestors.

 

Adult Swim is streaming every Samurai Jack episode! I like Samurai Jack.

 

I’ll leave you with, The 21st Century occasionally lives up to expectations!

 

In Veeshir’s post, there are links to his stories on the blog, to get to Veeshir’s post, you gotta walk, the darkness, of Veeshir’s mind

 

First an aside. I’ve been reading a lot of Kindle books by lesser known authors, either using Kindle unlimited to read it for free or buying books for $2 or $3. I get history and a lot of sci-fi, including military sci-fi and there are a lot of guys writing military sci-fi who know absolutely nothing about the military, weapons or science. Not a blessed thing.

One guy I tried to like wrote about ships going .1c and yet, 1000 km was far away. I mean, he wrote that the enemy was minutes away and they were 1000 km away. Other guys have nukes go off 100 miles from the space ship, in space, and the ship is destroyed. The guy I was reading last night has absolutely no idea what a ‘sabot’ is and yet, he used the word approximately 4000 times. Another guy had an LT order his patrol to, “Put a round in the chamber and keep your fingers on your triggers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” If it had been a book instead of a tablet, I would have thrown it across the room and burned it. If any LT in the history of ever gave that order his 1st sgt would have shot him in the face immediately I figure.

I know that people do stupid things so I should accept that, but when they have an entire Space Marine Corps acting like idjits, I’m done.

Oh well, at least I occasionally find a good book, like We are legion. We are Bob and BV Larson. His Star Force series, starts with Swarm, is very darn good.

 

Let’s Tube!

Puppy blender has a link that says

FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMED: Americans don’t trust anymore, and that’s a big problem.

huh, I wonder why that is. I mean, it’s not as if everybody has found out that lying works. Aided and abetted by our fine media betters.

 

Minitrue sez “Nearly Half Of All Americans Think Trump Is Moving Too Fast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(inhale)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So…… does that mean that over half think he’s doing okay?

finds that 47 percent of Americans think the speed of the president’s actions is too fast and 35 percent are satisfied by the pace. Another 10 percent believe it isn’t fast enough, and 7 percent report having no opinion.

Oh okay, so 47 think too fast and 45 think it’s right or too slow.  So basically, the headline could be that nearly half are pretty happy about what he’s doing but this is Minitrue!

 

Don’t forget, Trump has a lot of cleaning to do in the bureaucracy, I wonder if this is sabotage or just ignorance.

How many arrests have there been of foreign nationals for those seven countries since 9/11?” Robart asked a Justice Department lawyer in court on Feb. 3. When the lawyer said she didn’t know, Robart said, “Let me tell you. The answer to that is none, as best I can tell.”

It turns out the judge, and Nadler, and everybody else repeating the talking point had it wrong. Last year the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest released information showing that at least 60 people born in the seven countries had been convicted — not just arrested, but convicted — of terror-related offenses in the United States since Sept. 11, 2001. And that number did not include more recent cases like Abdul Artan, a Somali refugee who wounded 11 people during a machete attack on the campus of Ohio State University last November.

Never ascribe to malice along that which could be adequately explained by malice, stupidity and ignorance! But I’m going with just malice on that one. Situational ignorance is what lawyers do.

 

The ACLU morphed from a civil rights group to a “civil rights” group so slowly I didn’t even realize it. From SCCop Blog.

  • According to a comprehensive new study by the University of Chicago Crime Lab, the city’s exclusive contract with the American Civil Liberties Union could be having a significant impact on Chicago’s crime.
Gee, no shit?
  • “This is one of the few dramatic changes where the timing does fit the increase in homicides and so it seems it would be rash to reflectively rule this out as a possibility,” said Dr. Jens Ludwig, the director of the University of Chicago’s Crime Lab.
Golly, exactly as we pointed out when we dissected the 70+ page report that killed the street stop. But what do we know? We’ve only been doing this for decades now.

So what you’re saying is that lefty grandstanding and willful ignorance kills those they claim to be ‘protecting’?

Whodathunkit? You know, besides anybody not a sucker of lefty talking points.

 

Speaking of lefties killing people, Berkeley!

The major student-run paper of UC Berkeley ran five op-eds Tuesday defending the riots on campus, and arguing that violence was an acceptable response to a speech from Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos.

Jebus. On the one hand, they’re advocating stifling free speech using violence, on the other hand, they’re destroying their own homes to do it, on the gripping hand, try that shit someplace where leftists aren’t in charge and find out that felony rioting and cold-cocking people is not consequence-free.

I wonder why they never come to Apache Junction to protest. I know I’d welcome them, there are a shitload of coyotes around here (my dog is outside barking at some as I’ve been typing) and they gotta eat too.

 

Okay, now I do not trust any of these ‘leaks’ but I hope this one is accurate.

In his first call as president with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump denounced a treaty that caps U.S. and Russian deployment of nuclear warheads as a bad deal for the United States, according to two U.S. officials and one former U.S. official with knowledge of the call.

Like just about everything Obama did, that was a bad deal for America.

 

 

I really have to wonder how lefties can doublethink their way to spending so much time and effort defending people like this.

diversity

 

How the fuck did Obama so screw up the world that now Russia is helping the Taliban to fight us?

Gen. John Nicholson, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, testified today that Russia is helping the Taliban

WTF? No, really. WTFF?

I’m actually surprised the remake of Red Dawn didn’t have us invading Cuba, shooting school children and making adult males stay in camps watching speeches by Ronnie Raygun.

 

Yesterday I was wondering if Tsar Putin I and Sultan Erdogan would have a remake of the Russo-Turkish war of the 19th century, why?

Under “Alliance of convenience” you’ll see the Putin/Erdogan alliance in Syria.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent condolences after a Russian airstrike accidentally killed three Turkish soldiers in northern Syria, according to BBC

The soldiers were supporting Syrian rebels in efforts to capture the city of al-Bab from so-called Islamic State, BBC News reports.

It is part of a broader offensive by Turkey to push IS and Kurdish fighters away from Turkey’s southern border.

Russia and Turkey, who back opposing sides in the war, have been jointly targeting IS in airstrikes recently.

 

It seems to me that there are a lot more ways for that to go wrong than right. Maybe Tsar Putin I wasn’t playing chess, he was actually playing checkers. Unfortunately, Obama was playing tiddly-winks.

 

Well this is a year or more late.

19-year-old Willem Pennings built an Arduino-powered machine that quickly sorts M&Ms and Skittles by color

We’re fresh out of Skittle-shitting unicorns.

 

The finish is gonna be Dave Barry heavy, but let’s start with something that’s making me contemplate the uncontemplatable.

A top lawyer for internet retailer Amazon is taking a victory lap for the company’s role in the Ninth Circuit Court’s decision to retain the temporary restraining order halting President Trump’s travel ban.

Yes, not shopping at Amazon.

I’ve been shopping at Amazon since 1997 or so, I just got “Kindle unlimited” and I’ve been enjoying it, but now I have to think that maybe Amazon can suck my dick. I’m at least getting rid of Unlimited and telling them why. If they want to join the culture wars, that’s their deal.

I just sent an email explaining that I cancelled my Kindle Unlimited subscription because I do not want to subsidize their politics and that it will take very little to get me to buy my books elsewhere. Man, I am very pissed off right now. Can nobody in the fucking world just do their business and keep politics out of it?

 

Eh, let’s Dave Barry.

Only in post-2016 America would this headline need to be written.

Headline: TO CLARIFY: IT WAS NOT HIS PAIN

Article: Vaginal pain helps exonerate man accused of murder

 

At any other time in the history of ever that headline would have been only funny, now it’s necessary. I’m not sure if that makes it funnier.

 

We all saw the link where some guy tried an illegal wire transfer and blamed it on Jesus, but I didn’t see anybody pointing this out.

A unemployed Lakeland man faces a five-year prison sentence and a fine of up to $250,000 after making a $7 billion fraudulent wire transfer (emphasis me V)

7. Billion. Dollars. I have to respect crazy that strong. He could have gone for a few $mil but if you’re going for the gusto, go for the fucking gusto!

 

An orange alligator was spotted in Florida and this journalist did not work “Trump” into it at all! Impressive. The editor noted in the caption that the neighbors called it “trumpagator”,  but the journalist did not take a shot. That must have taken a lot of willpower.

trumpagator

 

Okay, I saw this link with pictures of guys dressed like this and I figured it was a joke.

gurk

Okay, so now I still think it’s a joke, just not on purpose. The one on the left is not the lamest, most ridiculous costume this guy makes. No, really.

gurkle

 

Since everything I know about high society I learned from reading High Times I have to ask, do people actually wear that stuff?

If so, where? When?

If women were wearing that I’d ask, “How much for half-and-half?”, is that just male-hooker wear?

I don’t really want to know all that much, I just get a little curious about ridiculous things sometimes.

It’s just no good anymore since they went away
Now I spend my time just making posts from yesterday

 

Topical!

There is no logic. There are no facts. You can say blue, and they will hear white. One plus one equals cat. Calling the left mentally ill is truly a disservice to those who are mentally ill. At least with mental illness there’s a reason for the madness and a hope for a cure. There is no hope for the left. They are suffering from a deep-rooted spiritual sickness, one for which, I’m afraid, there is no cure.

When you compare a United States President to a creature who killed 6 million Jews and 5 million others, what exactly is the starting point for a logical conversation?…

How do you talk to people who use the Holocaust as a prop? The Jews, the disabled, the gays, and those who were different were all exterminated. They have now become a straw man for the spiritually depraved, demonic left. What do you say to people who chant “We are all Muslim” when the Muslim is looking at them, going: “Yes, that is the goal isn’t it, dead or alive?”

Exactly. Trying to intelligently debate someone who compares anybody but Hitler, or maybe Stalin, to Hitler is about useless. Willful ignorance is functionally the same as stupidity and you wouldn’t argue with an idiot as to whether blue tastes better than Cheerios, would you?

 

H/T Added 20 minutes later!!!!!!

Relatedly,  selectively stupid hate!

He didn’t rape anyone or have an affair with his intern (Bill Clinton), he didn’t kill anyone, (Ted Kennedy), he didn’t smoke crack with some hooker in a seedy motel (Marion Barry), he didn’t text photos of his junk to underage girls (Anthony Weiner), he didn’t sell favors to our enemies (hiLIARy Clinton), he didn’t disrespect our military and throw his medals away (John Kerry), he didn’t have bribe money hidden in his freezer (William Jefferson), he didn’t make fun of Indian (dot head, not woo woo) convenience store clerks (Joe Biden), he didn’t belong to the KKK (Robert Byrd), he didn’t father a child with a 15 year old black woman (Strom Thurmond), he wasn’t caught texting sex message to teenage boys (Mark Foley), or run a gay house of prostitution with his boyfriend (Barney Frank), or try to pick up men in public restrooms (Larry Craig), and those are just from memory, I haven’t even Googled anything yet.

Donald Trump did nothing like any of those other politicians, yet those people are beloved and he is hated.

Yeah but…..compassion!….tolerance!……

This is the money shot

And are we really going to kill each other over politicians? Seriously? Think about that for a moment. Brother against brother, husband versus wife, over people like Mitch McConnell or Elizabeth Warren. OMG…what has happened to us

Yup. If there are people less worth getting rioting-angry about than any of our fine political betters, well, I can’t think of them.

 

The failure theater I expected is in full gear, fuck the GOP.

 

Should I get worked up in defense of these assholes?

A group of prominent Republicans and business leaders pitched a tax on carbon dioxide to top White House aides Wednesday, selling the plan as an economic win that could drive job growth and yield environmental dividends too.

Former Secretary of State James Baker and other members of the new “Climate Leadership Council” pressed the case in a 45-minute meeting in the Roosevelt Room that included President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser Gary Cohn, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and senior aide Kellyanne Conway.

Sigh. I can only hope Trump was playing Angry Birds during the presentation and only allowed them in for some sort of pat on the head for the GOP assholes.

Speaking of Failure Theater!

house-of-shut-up

Fuckheads are slow-rolling.

Primary season is just around the corner!

Speaking of fuckhead Republicans and their disdain for their ‘base’, Kristollnacht!

Weekly Standard editor-at-large Bill Kristol said Tuesday afternoon that the white working class should be replaced by immigrants as they have become “decadent, lazy” and “spoiled.”

“Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in?”

I really do not like the NRO/Weekly Standard assholes. I used to subscribe to NRO, but now I can’t even read Jay Nordlinger.

The best part, for me, is that they went all in on Palin-hate and thought they won but now we have Trump. That has to really piss them off.

 

Just don’t forget, they’re smarter and better than you!

The demographic most opposed to President Trump is not a racial minority, but a cultural elite.

This isn’t a revolution. The revolutions happened in June and November. Brexit and Trump were revolutions. The protests against them are a reaction by the overthrown establishment.

 

Yeah see, you were in charge and that’s why we’re so fucked so sit down, shut up and drink your damn appletini.

 

I read this story at AZ Central (supported Hillary!) about a totally blameless immigrant who’s just trying to make a better life.

For  four years, federal immigration authorities have given Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos a pass to remain in the U.S. rather than deport her back to Mexico.

That changed Wednesday, when Garcia de Rayos went to check in as usual at the central Phoenix offices of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Instead of being released, she was taken into custody, while her husband, two children — both U.S.-born citizens — and a group of supporters watched in tears….

In a statement, ICE officials said only that Garcia de Rayos was detained because of her prior conviction, which stems from a work-site raid almost a decade ago.(that’s a lie as we’ll see shortly V)

And thought, “There’s something they’re not telling me. Why is this totally innocent woman being targeted? Maybe she’s not so innoccent!”, imagine my unsurprise when I saw this.

She was arrested in 2008 during a workplace raid ordered by then-Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio at Golfland Sunsplash amusement park in Mesa, Ariz., and convicted of felony identity theft for possessing false papers.

Oh, convicted of a felony. That’s different. And the AZ Central article also managed to avoid mentioning this

ICE officials confirmed the detention on Wednesday. “Ms. Garcia de Rayos is currently being detained by ICE based on a removal order issued by the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review which became final in May 2013,” the agency said in a news release.

So Trump was POTUS in 2013? Huh. And isn’t that a little different from what AZ Central told us ICE said?

Which leads us to the question Which should be their catchphrase?

Minitrue: Lying Liars Who Lie!

or

Minitrue: Purveyors Of Fake News Since 1895!

 

They so miss Obama they’re forced to doing Tiger Teen! articles full of stupidities and lies.

“Obama makes rest of us look bad with his effortless kitesurfing”

– The Washington Post, Early Lead, February 7, 6:32 PM

 

Hahahahahahahahaha. I bet they had to type that one-handed.

These claims are false. As the video reveals Obama fell multiple times off the kiteboard despite “perfect conditions” and practicing for “two days solid” before the challenge.

Hahahahhahahahah. I love this part.

However, Love also admitted Obama is “not the most explosive guy, not the fastest guy,” and he “lacks in physical capabilities.”

Video evidence reveals Obama does not “knock down open shots.” ABC News reported in 2013 that, when playing against children, Obama was “ice cold” after going just 2 for 22 from the floor. The former president had to be shown how to make a layup by a 10 year old.

Hahahahahahahahahaha

Why…it’s almost as if they lie about Obama more than they do about Trump!?!?!?!?

 

They’re better than you!

Scores of NYPD cops have installed illegal flash-reflecting plastic covers on their personal-vehicle license plates that can thwart toll and traffic cameras

I’m pretty sick of this culture of impunity for our betters.

 

The Hill has high hopes.

Is Gorsuch a secret liberal? Trump, GOP have reason to wonder.

They lay it out, he lives in and near lefties!!!!!! And look at this!

sided with an Albuquerque middle schooler who was strip-searched by his school, dissenting while his colleagues ruled that the school, police officer and other employees were immune from lawsuits.

Okay, that’s just stupid. That’s not “liberal”, that’s “libertarian”. I understand liberaltarians try to obfuscate the issue, but they are different.

I’d say most lefties were not in favor of being able to sue the gov’t, unless you’re a leftist suing for Social Justice!!!! of course.
Back in 2014, I wrote about an article noting that Sweden was importing many tens of thousands of Syrian “refugees”.

This should end well.

…Sweden. Because the government decided to offer residence permits to every Syrian who requests one, it’s estimated that by the end of 2014 another 80,000 will have come.

Well, not so much end well as make Denmark and Finland laugh their asses off.

So how is it going?

More than 110 blazes ripped through accommodation centres across the Scandinavian nation, according to national police statistics. Of those fires, around 20 are believed to have been caused by carelessness or accident.

However Swedish officials have now said 92 of the infernos were started deliberately, with 37 of them being started by a resident at the home.

In the remaining cases, two culprits have been identified, but 53 of the fires remain unsolved as police have no leads as to who the suspects may be.

Hey! Let’s import a few tens of thousands here! Paul Krugman told us destroying shit is good for the economy!

 

I wonder if the previous story had anything to do with this.

Drawing on a unique, new Chatham House survey of more than 10,000 people from 10 European states, we can throw new light on what people think about migration from mainly Muslim countries. Our results are striking and sobering. They suggest that public opposition to any further migration from predominantly Muslim states is by no means confined to Trump’s electorate in the US but is fairly widespread.

Wait, you mean that people do not like importing other people who hate them and their whole, westernly-civilized nations? The deuce you say!

It takes an ‘elite’ to be surprised by that.

 

Speaking of Syrian ‘refugees’, let’s see how that bucket of scorpions is taking being shook up.

The complication is that the advancing forces — the Syrian Army and pro-government militias backed by Russia, and Syrian rebels backed by Turkey — are sworn enemies.

Their simultaneous race to seize the city, Al Bab, has turned into a test of how a global realignment of powers supporting Syria’s antagonists could help reshape or end the nearly six-year-old conflict…

The coming days will show if the Syrian foes, who do not always obey their patrons, will work together for the first time against the Islamic State, or drive out the extremists and then try to kill one another.

Yeah, that’ll work out great. The first question I have is if the “rebels’ will side with ISIS against the gov’t or if they’ll wait until ISIS is driven out before attacking the gov’t forces.

Which leads to the next questions, what’s Tsar Putin I going to do about it? How about Sultan Erdogan? Will Russia and Turkey get into a war?

 

The feel-good story of the week! Some idiots went to Cuba for their “Dream Wedding!” and found out when they got there that they were having a “Dream Wedding!” in a commie shithole.

A couple of apartheid-loving Brits who planned a lavish wedding in Cuba suffered a gigantic disappointment when the roof of their wedding venue collapsed.

Many were injured, including the bride and groom and their two children.

Needless to say, the Castro regime collected a lot of money from these newlyweds and their 24 guests, but won’t have to pay a shilling in compensation for injuries, trauma, and distress….

They chose to spend $31,287 for a wedding in one of the most repressive and impoverished countries on earth.

(Quick calculation: for a Cuban worker to afford such a wedding he/she would have to work for 105 years and save every penny for that event).

Even worse, they hoped it would be “the wedding of their dreams.”

 

It was the wedding of my dreams. I wonder if they’ll reevaluate their love of communism. Probably not, it takes real stupidity and willful ignorance to go to fucking Cuba to have a dream wedding.

Carlos asks a question

So… is it wrong to feel good about this couple’s bad luck?

No, it’s one of the things that’s right in the world. Feeling sorry for them would be wrong. They went to a gigantic slave-island. They deserved all the shit they got.

 

It doesn’t rain but it pours.

Samsung SDI made the news again on Wednesday when one of its plants in China caught fire.

Talk about bad optics. I will say I love my Samsung J-3.  The battery lasts a long time and it works very well.

 

Just some inside-basketball stuff. Before the basketball season started I watched the Knicks try to build a winner, with good players and I wrote

The schadenfreudey part is that the Knicks spent a lot of money on assholes like Noah but they kept Carmelo Anthony. CarMElo Anthony has Obama level narcissism.

He’s going to be such a whiney “Give me the ball” bitch the Knicks will suck anyway. They had a guy, Jeremy Lin, who came out of nowhere when ‘MElo’ was injured and the fans loved him. So once MElo was back, he forced Lin out.  I’m gonna laugh my ass off as they are screwed this year either by listening to MElo or by the ruckus he’ll cause if they don’t.

So what’s happening? The Knicks suck and are trying to trade ‘Melo but there are no takers and now he’s fighting with the GM.

Hahahahahhahaa. And that’s why I stopped watching basketball long ago. I liked Jordan, I didn’t like Kobe, and now all the ‘stars’ act like Kobe. When he was in trouble for rape one of his teammates said, anonymously, “I don’t believe the accusations, Kobe doesn’t make a pass to anyone!”

 

Now, if I was a little more superstitious, I’d be celebrating this,

Astronomers and stargazers will be treated to three celestial events on Friday night through Saturday morning.

The trifecta includes a “penumbra” lunar eclipse during the full “snow” moon and a comet flyby!

but all the apocalypse scenarios have been teases I hate to get my hopes up.

Although… the fact that it’s a “penumbra” eclipse, gives me hope.

Penumbras are always used to screw us.

Jurists have used the term “penumbra” as a metaphor for rights implied in the constitution (Commerce Clause! V)

So we have that going for us.
