Underemployed Angry Man of Retirement Age Shouts Insults at Passers-By





This Kurt Schlichter column wasn't meant to be a direct response to the Cruise Captain, but it turns out to be just that.

Some quotes:

You know all that insufferable babbling and crying about "principles" we had to endure from you Never Trump Konservative Ken Dolls? Your rending of your cheap suits, your 180s over classic GOP policies because The Donald actually tried to enact them, and your mortifying blubbering to suddenly sympathetic hosts on MSNBC and CNN about how awful our President is? With your sad, drawn faces and high-pitched voices, you True Conservatives of Conservatisn [TM], you Keepers of the Flame of Conservativeness resisted the coming of Donald Trump (and those who supported him) because... because...

Because that's not who we are...

Because we're better than that...

Because... our principles!

Our principles. Yeah, right. Well, it was all a crock, a con, a grift by a bunch of displaced Beltway strivers furious that the marks -- that's us Normals -- wised up to their scam, played the players, and sent them packing.

Principles? You laughed uproariously at Sean Hannity's confidential information being revealed for no good reason, just as you laughed at President Trump when federal agents marched into his lawyer's office to steal privileged documents as part of the shameful collusion farce you’ve been applauding. Your principles didn't stop you from supporting an effort to undo the results of an election that left you out in the cold.

What would the Founders say? Probably, "Stop trying to hang around with us."

Where are your principles in the face of the gross injustices of the last few days? A federal judge who was nearly appointed Bill Clinton's attorney general and who officiated at Soros's wedding ordered Hannity’s information disclosed, but that was cool with you. After all, Sean Hannity is so... oh well, I never!

Principles that depend on who is asserting them aren't principles. They are poses.

There's more, of course.

I only say this because I was trying to figure out the anger. But I had my own stages of grief way, way back during GWB, and one of them was disgust and anger. So now I get it.

Mitch McConnell Considering Keeping Senate Open Much Longer During Week to Force Democrats to Either Allow Votes on Trump Nominees, or Spend Most of Campaign Season Filibustering

People I know have been advocating this forever.

Pull the trigger, Mitch.

McConnell this month began threatening Senate Democrats with longer work weeks if they continue to slow-walk the confirmation of President Trump’s nominees. Marc Short, White House point man for legislative affairs, told a small gathering of Republican donors this week that the majority leader plans to use this tactic in the weeks ahead to squeeze Democrats running for re-election in red states.

“McConnell wants to increase the days the Senate is open for business to keep” Democratic Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Bill Nelson of Florida, and Claire McCaskill of Missouri “tied up from campaigning,” a Republican donor told the Washington Examiner, relaying what Short communicated.

Ten Democrats from Trump states cannot afford keeping filibusters going through weekends. They have to go home to defend seats in peril.

So: If you want to play your games, fine. But now the Senate's open 24 hours seven days a week. How much is it worth it to you to block these people?

207 On the other hand there was money for a new Diversity and Equity committee with well paid outside consultants to tell them how to be more inclusive.


I recently found out that government school are being ranked downward for low scores on diversity and "equity." So high schools, for example, that had high rankings for test scores are now being ranked lower because they're including "diversity and equity" scores. This brings down the home values in top ranked schools districts. The schools with low test scores and higher "diversity and equity" scores are being given higher scores. Equity "scores" compare how well "disadvantaged populations" do in comparison to the rest of the school, so if the whole school is a crapfest, the equity "score" goes up. Oh, and "disadvantaged populations" is partially shorthand for "illegal."

The real estate agents are in the know, so can limit the effect somewhat.

Posted by: National Association for the Advancement of La Raza Nutria at April 19, 2018 02:29 PM (0jtPF)


People operate on multiple levels, all the time. Our brains are remarkably capable of multi-tasking, so IF we're going to talk about the concept of evil, and come up with a definition for it, then let's say this. Evil is knowing what you are about to do is unjustifiable, morally, and doing it anyway.


That means the brain that is capable of shutting off the part of it that regulates human behavior, to the point of choosing to do evil over good, that's a defective brain.


The problem people sometimes have, trying to wrap their minds around that as a concept, is that they think we're talking about legality here. We're not. The law is just another human construct, and it operates at a different frequency, separate from morality, and separate from the concepts of mental health/illness.


So there is virtually any act, including murder, that can happen where one is legally sane, morally blameless, and mentally ill, all at the same time. Or switch any of those on or off, interchangeably.

42 I seem to recall a flap about 30 years ago when a suburban parish's deputies were entertaining themselves, and cleaning up the neighborhood, by shooting the nutria running around the open drainage canals. (Yes, Virginia, Noo Awlins' suburbs have open drainage canals all over. There are occasional fences, but it's still possible on a dark rainy night to drive into the canal and drown.)

But of course, CA's officials won't do that.

133 There was an article somewhere about the problem with these critters in Louisiana. Apparently they were brought in decades ago as a source for furs, which would provide income to them there deplorable folks who live in the swamp. The fur industry has collapsed, thanks to progs, and the Nutria are a-swarmin'. They apparently taste OK, and there's some effort to make them part of N'Orleans cookin', according to this article - which I can't find now. But trust me....

What exactly does this mean? The way it reads to me is that they can have a litter of babies every 48 hours, but that can't possibly be true, can it?


I think they are referring to being able to get knocked up again in 48 hours. No mammal has a gestational period that short.

221 If they are like whistle pigs, watch out. Whistle Pigs drag off their dead like the VC, usually to consume them later.

OK - get this! Back in the day, people imported these gross bastards (on purpose!) to the US to be farmed for fur.
However, it turns out that fashionable ladies didn't want to wear swamp-rat fur, and the farms were not profitable. The farmers simply released them into the wild to prosper.

$5 a tail

Sexual maturity in about 3-4 months

285 247 231 If Carter had been killed by the attack rabbit who wins the presidency in 76?
Posted by: steevy at April 19, 2018 01:11 PM (LiyEm)

Walter Mondale?

The attack rabbit thing happened in '79 or '80, while Carter was president . . . so the question answers itself. Mondale would have become president and run -- disastrously, one would assume -- against Reagan in 1980. No real historical effect.

But it would have been FUNNY. Garfield and McKinley and Kennedy all brought down by lone assassins . . . and Carter gets it from a vicious bunny attack.

OK - get this! Back in the day, people imported these gross bastards (on purpose!) to the US to be farmed for fur.

However, it turns out that fashionable ladies didn't want to wear swamp-rat fur, and the farms were not profitable. The farmers simply released them into the wild to prosper.

I uninstalled every app that I don't use regularly.
I updated every app I'm keeping.
I went into Settings > Battery and put it on battery saver mode.
I went into Settings > Battery and dis-allowed all apps from running in the background.
I rebooted the phone.

So far, it's not really helping. It's losing 10% per hour on standby and a phone call costs me like 30% of the battery.

Any suggestions?

Disable location services entirely.

If it helps, reenable it and then selectively disable it per-app until you find the culprit. If I leave the gasbuddy app location service on, the battery usage goes nuts. I have no idea why that one causes the problem, but enabling location only when it's active (i.e. not all the time) fixed it. It = a mystery.

But if hypothetically they showed up in my pond I'd probably do what most want to do ... shoot em all, before they eat every fish and move on.

hypothetically it would only take a minute as they bobbed up to see what was happening and were greeted with a bang. But no hypothetical bodies have floated up ... haven't seen any in the last couple days since my friend reported that.

And it is very possible that the seemingly unbridgeable divide between the ignorant elites who are afraid of the very idea of guns and the normals who up until now looked at them with mild amusement, thinking, "What twits," will take a more significant turn. I cannot imagine how we can coexist.

Woman calls cops on man playing with his kids at park because she was afraid of his pro-gun shirt

Blue Lives Matter reported that Benbrook Police Department Cpl. J. Reese said the woman did indeed call police on Johnston, and described him as a “suspicious person” who had a “gun holstered to his chest” and wearing the offensive T-shirt.

When Reese arrived at the park, he spoke with the woman, who said that Johnston was “was making other parents on the playground very uncomfortable with his T-shirt.”

“The subject did not act threatening to anyone, nor did he threaten anyone,” Reese noted, and later described Johnston as “polite.”

“She was not scared of the gun,” Reese added. “[She] was concerned about his T-shirt.”

According to Johnston, who “voluntarily identified himself” to Reese, he offered to show his gun permit to police.

“They didn’t ask,” Johnston told Blue Lives Matter.

But having a sitting senator who is a proven liar is just peachy!

Fresno State says Barbara Bush-bashing professor can be fired despite tenure

76 I had something happen to me some years back that's apropos here. I was out for a Sunday morning walk in the town park where I then lived in western NY, on a nice, sunny morning, wearing jeans, t-shirt, hiking boots, my backpack and a random baseball cap I grabbed which happened to have the Winchester logo on it.

As I was walking in the park I heard someone shouting at me and turned to see a large, sweaty guy lumbering towards me, yelling his head off. This fatty fascist then started berating me, calling me "one of them survivalist tea party militia traitors" and waving his cell phone at me telling me he was going to call the sheriff because I was "scaring people" in the park.

I guess the hiking boots made me a survivalist militia member? Or the backpack? I guess it was just the Winchester logo because he was very upset about my hat and kept ordering me to take it off. At one point, the corpulent creep said I was "worse than ISIS and for all he knew I was a terrorist."

But I got really lucky. My mom happened to be a long-time employee of the town police dept. (since retired) which was almost within eyeshot of the park. I got out my own phone and told the Hefty Himmler: "Why call the sheriff when the town police are right over there? This isn't the sheriff's jurisdiction. Call the cops on me-my mother is the dispatcher, she'll take your call. No, really, use my phone, I have the direct number on speed-dial. I insist. Maybe you can talk to the judge while you're at it. He's my Godfather (also true.)"

I walked away whistling while the bloated bozo muttered impotent threats at me.

180 A now former FB friend of mine was a 20 year tort lawyer, assured me (and everyone in the Atlantic thread) that an NRA member could be liable for a murder (like the one in FL, this was over the Delta/NRA flap) committed by someone with a gun, because the NRA advocates such dangerous policy. (she meant in a tort I guess, not for the actual murder)

I refuted that and she went personal, accused me of "mansplaining", and worse. I looked up what she tried to use as grounds (in nasty condescending tone) and it had been refuted by the NRA back in 1991, and she even admitted no judge had ruled as she wished. But these SJWs flood every site, and I assume the FB dictators will toss out people that argue. I actually got some questionnaire thing from FB, (presumably) since I argued WrongThink, and someone(bot) probably complained.

Anyway, this is the NYTimes from 1991, on how the left tried to make gun makers liable, and it includes an NRA response.

It is also a violation 18 U.S. Code 241 "conspiring to threaten or intimidate".

No, I disagree: it's about demonizing gun owners. They want you to think it's about guns, because it is not against the law to oppress guns, which have no rights, but it is a federal felony to oppress the rights of gun owners. They don't want to be arrested for that felony so they shrewdly misdirect you as to what they are doing. You have simply fallen for their Jedi mind trick.

Dunno. IIRC, the operator wrapped the microwave oven in a blanket of fiberglass insulation, opened the door and placed the ore inside of the oven (the ore in a crucible, I think).

Meh ... I'd say Citizens.

I'm met plenty - in meatspace as well as online - more than happy to disarm me, but can't give enough firepower to the various agencies of Local, State, and Federal Government.

There's a notion out there ... quite common ... that a Police State would be a good thing. That notion is held by some Republicans I've met as well as many Democrats.

I still think it all comes down to this ... the source of the vast majority of political arguments ...

What is the proper roll of the State with respect to the Citizenry ?

FWIW during my brief time in Uganda I got the impression that their definition of marriage is not the same as in the west.
It doesn't necessarily mean a ceremony with a the signing of a certificate. Polygamy is still a reality in parts of Africa. People who have just started living together appear to call themselves married.
The definition of marriage is not radically different, but it does appear to be different.

File that under answers to questions nobody is asking.

2. I have family investments and trust with long term investments taxed at less than 20% and not subject to SS deductions. You must take 16% right off the top of your salary and then throw in another 25% of your salary so that we can spend your money wisely.
3. We protect our families and marriages. You are penalized for being married and working, our liberal judges in divorce courts will turn your children against, and we will become the defacto head of the family.

Point of order: "smelting" is the process of winning metal from its ores. Foundries cast metal into useful products. Smelters may pour ingots of the metals they produce, but that is not considered foundry work. Ingots are the raw material that a foundry starts with (although many use scrap, too).

He also advises to always carry. Always. The businesses that say "no guns" on a little sign on the door? Forget about it. Carry.

Abide by the law when it comes to no-carry-by-statute, but everywhere else? Carry it and no one should know.

410 Several African countries like Uganda, Kenya and Nigeria have a strong Anglican presence and take their faith seriously and their socially conservative laws reflect that. Of course the Obama administration tried to undermine that in various ways. I'm guessing the lefties think that we will be as obsessed with social engineering of other nations as much as they were. They can't conceive of a government that just minds its own business on social mores in other places.

Africa is also the one place in the world where the Catholic Church is growing by leaps and bounds. Not sure if it's Angola or Uganda, but one of those countries pushed pre-marital abstinence very hard, and managed to quell the spread of AIDS. Without condoms and a lot of nonsense about sex with virgins, etc.

Funny how moral living is better and somewhat disease free.

I thought this was the funniest part:

"It's a real estate meeting. We've been working on this for months," Robinson said. "We're days away from changing our whole entire situation, our lives, and you about to sit here telling me I can't do that? You're not doing that."

Besides the fact that this is hysterical, they think that the argument that they have A RIGHT to use someone's store for meetings is the way to go. LOL. They worked so hard on this "real estate deal" which is so important that they are doing it in a cafe - and in a cafe where they can't be bothered to order a small (Super-Mega-Grande, I guess is the Starbucks term) coffee.

These idiots should be arrested for being intellectually offensive.

425 The guy that led our concealed carry class is a county deputy, heads up the police department range, and is on two swat teams in local jurisdictions. He advises, like all the good instructors do, to work on carrying really concealed. Loose clothing, no printing.


I am against open carry for numerous reasons more to do with losing the element of surprise.

The nice thing about open carry is, when carrying concealed and your gun is inadvertently exposed, it's ok.

And yes, Texas had a prohibition against "printing" and it inadvertently showing. Even on accident.

428 I'm sure others have mentioned it by now but it is an avowed tactic by the anti-gunners to call the cops on anyone open carrying to report a person with a gun. Now, do I know that this woman is part of that group? No, no, I do not. But I do know that the actions she took, namely, calling the police to say there was a man with a gun and a t-shirt and it was threatening, falls exactly within the openly discussed tactics of some anti-gun groups.

In other words, she wasn't threatened at all. She was specifically attempting to create an incident with the cops in order to get that man arrested or worse.

Posted by: ThePrimordialOrderedPair

idk, but Chelsea's name is all over those illegal "charities", as I hear it. The Clintons did a classic move of operating different charities with almost the same name ... Bill even studied how to do this (well, studied how it is not supposed to be done) ... so there were different "charities" with very close to the same names. Then accounts get opened and money gets laundered through the not really a charity accounts.

Apparently that should be easily discovered by a variety of audits, so the Clinton magic is to make sure they somehow escape all those audits, for decades. And still ... they persist ... they are still collecting money, while our FBI tries diligently to remove Trump.

this is Charles Ortel ... who did a lot of work on this before John Solomon ...

He shot a mugger dead on the street in Seattle in the 1960's, and no charges were ever filed.

There was a time when guns were considered tools, which is what they are. Now, we call men women and women men, and guns jump up and shoot kids all of the time.

The root of this trend amongst the "woke" is a toxic combination of Marxism and Postmodernism, which results in Progressivism. Notice that the default position in all those ideologies is the very worst of human nature.

The whole Clinton Foundation had to be a known scam since its (illegal) conception ... but Comey/Rosie/Mueller were the dirty cops (imo) that let it operate under color of law.

The current coup is a continuation of the whole scam ... raiding and collecting every detail from Trump's attorney ... no problem. organized crime bosses? Nope, wouldn't want to do that to their lawyers .. (actually those type lawyers are probably the ones Mueller selected, as I see it)

548 541 The Awans were doing something bad, and they kept doing it with DWS giving cover. Half of congress had their messages exposed, shopped around the world (I presume) ... yet they persist.

It seems only when the scandal gets enough internet attention does the FBI concede to "look into it" and even that seems mostly a coverup. The whole Clinton Foundation had to be a known scam since its (illegal) conception ... but Comey/Rosie/Mueller were the dirty cops (imo) that let it operate under color of law.

The current coup is a continuation of the whole scam ... raiding and collecting every detail from Trump's attorney ... no problem. organized crime bosses? Nope, wouldn't want to do that to their lawyers .. (actually those type lawyers are probably the ones Mueller selected, as I see it)

We are at a crossroads ... will the OIG report "take them out", or will the RINOs and bureaucrats and shadow people take out Trump (or severely compromise him)?
Posted by: illiniwek

IIRC Rep Beccera (now AG California) who Awans also worked for provided false documents to investigators in this case, and so should be arrested and charged.

I'm glad that this case hasn't been forgotten. It should be dealt with fully. Although, where are all the investigators, prosecutors and jurors going to come from.

38 OK, here's where I call bullshit. The waterfalls are spectacular, but where do they come from? If they're going to keep falling from roughly lake level, or whatever we call how full the cup is, then they must be replenished.

There's obviously no room for a natural spring above them, so it has to be pumped up through the stem of the glass. And then you'd need some awfully sophisticated valve technology for Titan to pick it up and take a drink and pick the sailing ships out of his teeth and put it back down again and have the waterfalls still work.

I do not believe that that sort of valve technology existed back then.

Well, Jack has posited that the boats get scooped up when Titan scoops up a gobletfull from the lake. I'll accept that.

Then the question is whether the waterfalls are permanent. If they're constant then you need a source of water from below, which means massive pumps and some sort of advanced valve technology that allows the goblet to reconnect with the source the minute that Titan sets it down.

It is perhaps a simpler explanation that this polaroid was taken the minute that Titan set the glass down and the waterfalls are ephemeral.

Book deals are one of the left's forms of covert payoff. Fat advance that doesn't have to be returned if sales don't recoup it is a way give money to those favored few.

This is a type of Romanticism that focused on fantasy themes and imagery. There might be a social commentary here about how humans, who think there are the apex of Creation and superior to all things, are actually puny and powerless compared to the unknown. That's up to you, though. Cole is more known for his romantic American landscapes, so this type of theme is unusual for him.This kinda reminds me of Goya's "Colossus", but Cole's painting has a more ambiguous mood: https://tinyurl.com/zsn6lpa Goya's may be an allegory of the French under Napoleon.

150 Well, Jack has posited that the boats get scooped up when Titan scoops up a gobletfull from the lake. I'll accept that.

Then the question is whether the waterfalls are permanent. If they're constant then you need a source of water from below, which means massive pumps and some sort of advanced valve technology that allows the goblet to reconnect with the source the minute that Titan sets it down.

It is perhaps a simpler explanation that this polaroid was taken the minute that Titan set the glass down and the waterfalls are ephemeral.

Cole used some mythological allusions in a few of his works but this 'goblet' seems like modern whimsy. It would make a great fantasy book cover. It would be interesting to see this painting in person.

Thanks to CBD for this lovely work of art.

On an overseas flight to Japan, once they got settled in, and in First Class of course, the stewardess came down the aisle and said to the USG type "Oh hi there Ms Smith, would you like your usual cocktail today?"

yeah, that is absurd. But imo a good approach to counter them may be to agree the young Hogg is brave and idealistic, (as most of us were till we spent time in the real world) ... but that youthful exuberance is easily misguided, and that the far left has used and abused these children.

Ingraham survived the attacks on her, but if she had attacked the leftists that push socialism/communism, but praised the 'activist' side of Hogg, she may have gotten better mileage. To call him whiny is "punching down", and down to a stupid kid no less.

Same with many of the useful idiots, just always scorn them as tools of the evil manipulators and anti-American globalists. To argue directly with the insane is to fight the smokescreen.

The target needs to be the ones refusing to yield to popular opinion ... close the border, tough on trade cheats (which is all of the other countries), push gun rights for protection, etc. We need to be the parent, those like Whoopi or Behar are the ignorant tools, it is "beneath us adults" to argue with their raw hate.

There's obviously no room for a natural spring above them, so it has to be pumped up through the stem of the glass. And then you'd need some awfully sophisticated valve technology for Titan to pick it up and take a drink and pick the sailing ships out of his teeth and put it back down again and have the waterfalls still work.

I do not believe that that sort of valve technology existed back then.

You don't want the tooth, because deep down in places you don't talk about on the ONT, you want me cleaning those teeth. You need me cleaning those teeth.

383 interesting interview with Michael Savage talking to his lawyer, who also happened to represent a former president of Ukraine, and had some interesting thoughts. One being on Sessions letting this attack on Trump's lawyer happen ... that Trump may need to purge these guys, that Obama changed who would fill the position if senate refused to approve someone new (Obama had changed it to a DC person, Trump back in 2017 changed it back to the Virginia ??? ... someone he appointed.

Sessions may be letting the Grassley work continue, and we have Huber at work ... but the RINOs (and it seems Sessions as well) want to replace Trump with Pence (a good globalist party man at heart). Public opinion is the last thing stopping them (DeepState/Establishment) from overruling the election.

448 Just reading the political news of the day and I see a consistent theme.

Trump won an election everyone thought he should lose, while GOPe politicos are losing elections everywhere that everyone think they should easily win.

And what is the political lesson the GOPe draws from these losses? "If only", McTurtle says, "more quasi-Democrats would run as Republicans, we might win!"

We are led by deeply stupid people. Corrupt, yes, but really dumb too.

Yes. On Tuesday. Big reveal was yesterday. Eye seems to be fine. I can see to drive, and also can read the PC screen with it, not using glasses. Have my reading glasses on for the other eye, and they actually make the vision from my right eye (the one done) blurry. I am going to buy a couple of pairs of dollar store readers, and make a pair with a strong lens on the left side, and a weak one on the right.
With my regular contact lens in the left side, I can see fine to drive. Go in for the left side surgery in June. Procedure took about 15 minutes, done under local anaesthetic. Not painful.

522 I heard that the actor who played Ralphie in A Christmas Story bent over too quickly while drinking a cup of coffee with the plastic stirrer still in it.

Have you noticed Far East tourists, in either North America or in Europe? I can see matching but certainly not surpassing their obnoxiousness.

524 Looks like a cover illustration for a fantasy novel. Verdict: not art. It's not even the subject matter, it's just executed too cartoonishly. Dali could have done it in a way such that it would be art.

The Morning Report 4/19/18

warsaw2nd.jpg

Good morning kids. As we roll into a Thursday, it's Comey, Comey, Comey! The release of "Mein Come-pft!" went over pretty much as expected; the press slobbering all over it while the public at large yawned. In fact, about the only people who showed up for his book signing in DC a couple of days ago were reporters, and I assume that was about the same at the Barnes and (ig)Noble in Union Square in NYC yesterday. Actually, I see that that's precisely what happened, except he got heckled by "far right" reporter Laura Loomer who shouted "you're going to get locked up!" Not so nutty-sounding; a recent poll shows a sizable chunk of Americans would like to see that happen.

Meanwhile, Bob Goodlatte is pushing to have the Comey memos released, which of course would prove that this entire investigation is as we have known all along a concocted witch hunt to overthrow the President. And that's why the shambling walking colostomy bag called Jerrold Nadler is squealing like a pig because he knows this all too well, and that if they are released Mueller will be shut down.

Meanwhile, the real high crimes, treason, gonniffing and miscellaneous meshugas of Hillary Clinton barely registers on the radar, as the ex-business partner of the Awans' dad claims that all the stolen data (wiped, like, with a cloth) is now in the hands of the Pakistani government.

On the foreign policy front, as the Korean situation evolves in ways that no one could have imagined (the NorKs past disingenuousness notwithstanding), on the heels of Secretary of State Pompeo's visit with Whoa, Fat!, PDT is stating that he will not be playing games and will walk away from a summit if he senses his counterpart is doing so. In any case both Rush and Daniel Greenfield are marveling at his successes which, along with the aforementioned old lady's crimes, goes either unnoticed or distorted by the Democrat-Media Complex to look like disasters. But you knew that already, and that's why you come here, gentle reader.

In related news, as our southern border is now the entry point for growing numbers of illegal aliens being smuggled in from Bangladesh, Paul Ryno and the GOP-e CoC-servatives are planning on doing something - attempting to ram home an Amnesty bill right before the midterms. Amazing how they are motivate to act when it's to sell out the American people.

Speaking of politics, bearing the above in mind, the so-called Democrat "blue wave" at least at this stage is looking more and more like wish-casting. As PDT's achievements take hold, specifically deregulation and the tax cuts, the Democrats are becoming more and more shrill in their attacks against him, the second amendment, the first amendment and American values in general. It's a complete turnoff to most normal people, and yet the propagandists continue to pluck that chicken. Saner (if you could call it that) heads on the Left are getting nervous that the calls to impeach PDT could backfire bigly come November. But still, they'll persist. In fact there's a link that the Democrats are hot and horny to make, get this, reparations a major part of the party platform in the next few years. And then there's that pornographic parade float of hatred and obscenity what calls itself a professor from Fresno State. QED. All that said, the GOP, if it in fact actually did represent our interests, are positioned to utterly destroy the Democrat-Left for at least a generation. But as we all know, that's not their job. It's too preserve, protect and defend the New Deal, Great Society and Hope & Change until they can throw an election and reinstall a Democrat majority. No wonder you get the attitude of the guy who'll vote for convicted felon Michael Grimm rather than allow the Dems to take over. What a revolting choice we seem to always face. Something's gotta give. Feh.

From hither and yon, evidently H.R. McMaster's father was found dead and the incident has now been ruled suspicious. Meanwhile the ATF is investigating 704 pounds of TNT gone missing from a Pennsylvania construction site. Stop me if you've heard this one: people keep telling you that it's no longer safe for Jews to walk the streets of major European cities wearing Stars of David or yarmulkes. You tell them they're crazy and just to prove it's a myth, you put a yarmulke on your head. See? No problemo! And then, some random Muzzy sees you, takes off his belt and starts whipping on you. Man, what a buzz-kill.

Lastly, today marks the 75th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Alone, half-starved and after watching thousands of their relatives die from disease, starvation and then later, mass deportation to the Treblinka extermination camp, a few hundred or so managed to hold off the German police and even Waffen SS units for a few weeks armed only with a couple pistols and molotov cocktails. Rather than be slaughtered, they chose to fight and die for their honor. And five years later, the fighting spirit of those martyrs laid the foundation for the modern state of Israel, which was born five years later and today celebrates its 70th Anniversary.

And still, they persist...

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.
