The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

She's an assistant professor with the University of Massachusetts Amherst School of Public Health and Health Sciences.

"It was not the same as it was in Colorado, circa 2013, when there were products labeled to look like candy wrappers," "Nonetheless, even despite opaque and tamper-proof and child-proof packaging requirements, we still saw little kids getting into the products and having some bad experiences." Jennifer Whitehill


Quote II

"I really believe that some of these politicians don’t actually believe in public schools." Democratic congressional candidate Dan McCready (N.C.)


Quote III

Donald Trump and the Republican Party hate America: It's time to say it
For all they blather on about patriotism, the unctuous Republicans are the ones who really despise their country David Masciotra


Quote IV

“In all honesty, I never even imagined myself becoming a mother. My teen years and early 20s were spent just trying to get my act together. I had an anxiety disorder, depression and was married and divorced from my first husband by the time I was 23 years old.”
“Before I met my husband, I dated a bunch of not-nice guys. I peppered in a few nice guys here and there, but I think I was so insecure and unhappy at that time that I either drove those good guys away or grew bored of their niceness.”Joanna Schroeder


Quote V

“Now before I go any further, I want to say this. Like anyone who’s been honest with themselves, I know that I have made mistakes. I am very sorry for harm I have caused,” Warren remarked during the event. “I have listened and I have learned a lot, and I am grateful for the many conversations that we’ve had together.” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)

It is a good thing China didn't call the Hong Kong protesters "Retarded" otherwise they would have been banned. Twitter is in the pocket of the China Commies.

Twitter has been allowing promoted tweets—essentially targeted ads— to be placed by China's state media, attacking pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong and blaming those campaigners for the escalating violence and civil unrest.

The use of social media to peddle political and electoral interference is not new—it is a major theme of the backlash against social media. Usually, though, it is more subtle and cleverly orchestrated than the blunt promoted tweets that China's state media has been paying Twitter to publish.


UPDATE

Twitter to change their evil ways on State Tweets

The latest from Paul Joseph Watson, NSFW-Language

Pass the popcorn please. Two despicable assholes are fighting.

It’s happening, and it’s glorious: the Left is turning on its own as Democrats continue to veer to the far-left amid an escalating civil war.

In the latest salvo, anti-Semitic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib called for a boycott of left-wing comedian Bill Maher’s HBO show because he criticized her anti-Israel rhetoric. (Maher was once Libertarian, but has since devolved.)

The brouhaha erupted after Maher said that Tlaib’s past comments like “Jews control the world, control the money” is why Israel was reluctant to allow Tlaib to visit.

An angry Tlaib reacted by saying “maybe folks should boycott his show.”

Our country is too populated for a one size fits all single payer health care. Of course the working man will suffer not Sen. Bernie Sanders, (Communist-Vermont)

Sanders: “I want to be frank I don’t want to…oh I guess the guy could tell me why I’m crazy. All right, there’s a Cubs fan…”

Audience member: “Wouldn’t the Medicare health care plan … wouldn’t that take away our right to bargain for our — our medical benefits?”

Sanders: “Yeah, absolutely it would. It’s not a bad thing.”

Just another reason to buy Greenland.

And always remember that in Greenland, English is a strong second language as in “For English press 2.”

Finally, if the globe heats up as we are always being warned it will (“Any day/week/month/year now”, then we’ve got some fine fine farmland and retirement condo space at very affordable prices. In addition, besides having a lot of rare earths and other precious metals ready for extraction, Greenland is also looking at developing a hydrothermal power system. That is so very, very alternative fuelish that one might look at buying Greenland as Trump’s much more sensible “New Green Deal.”

And never forget, the other candidate for 51st state is Puerto Rico.

The road to hell is paved with photovoltaic panels.

Three years later, even the most optimistic supporters have deemed the Wattway a failure.

The Wattway consists of 2,800 photovoltaic panels lining one kilometer (0.62 miles) on the way to the small northern town of Tourouvre-au-Perch in Normandy. At the time of its opening its builder, the construction group Colas, part of telecoms group Bouygues, said that the solar panels were covered with a resin containing silicon, strong enough to fend off traffic even from 18-wheelers.

"The engineers of this project surely did not think about the tractors that would roll over," Pascal and Eric, two local roofers leaning on the counter of the Café de Paris, Tourouvre-au-Perche, told the French newspaper Le Monde in 2019. While the resin coating might be strong enough to keep a big rig from crushing the solar panels, the two said that driving over it generates so much noise that locals required the road's speed limit to be lowered to 70 km/h, or a paltry 43 mph.

Leave it to the French.

Minneapolis puts the kibosh on drive-thrus. Vehicle emissions, noise and safety are the reasons why.

Bad news for lazy people who like their fast food on the go (and influencers looking for a clickbait title for their supercar video) as the days of drive-thrus are numbered.

At least in Minneapolis, anyway. The city has banned the building of drive-thru windows in order to reduce emissions, noise and pedestrian accidents. They specifically state vehicle emissions will be reduced, but no doubt human flatulence inside cars will also fall given this new ruling. Either way, this could be the first roll of the snowball that could see drive-thrus being a thing of the past.

Current businesses are safe, so they say.

Is John Brennan the mastermind of the Russian Hoax? And is he facing criminal charges?

All research indicates CIA Director John Brennan enlisted the help of U.S. and foreign intelligence assets to run operations against the Trump campaign early in 2016. The objective was to give the false and manufactured appearance of compromise. Once the CIA established the possibility of compromise, that activity created the EC which opened the door for an FBI investigation.

The operation run by Brennan targeting Papadopoulos is at the center of the two-page “EC” (electronic communication); given to FBI Director James Comey to start the counterintelligence operation (Crossfire Hurricane) against the Trump campaign.

Two of the intelligence assets Brennan organized were Joseph Mifsud and Stefan Halper.

"EVERYONE.

This man came into my yard a couple hours ago and offered to cut my grass for a certain price.

I didn't have enough money today to afford that on top of everything else, and I tod him to come back in a week.

A few minutes ago I hear a loud noise outside of my house.

I opened the door, and noticed that he was cutting my grass.

I went running out to him and yelled for him to stop... he shook his head no.

Not only is this woman, hot, hot, hot. She's a Genius Award Winner.

A New Jersey woman set fire to a man’s home after accepting a booty call invitation only to discover when she arrived that he had fallen asleep, police charge.

According to cops, Taija Russell, 29, torched the victim’s home around 4 AM on August 4. Russell was arrested this week on several felony charges, including attempted homicide, aggravated arson, and aggravated assault.

Investigators say that when Russell (seen above) arrived at the residence, the snoozing man did not hear her at the front door. He also did not respond to series of text messages sent by Russell.

They don't even try to temper their Projection.

1) Look in mirror
2) Describe what you see and claim that is your enemy.

It would be fascinating to see who could read through the the former US's manifesto, The Declaration of Independence, and stop only when one read's something that is personally disagreeable or offensive.

I believe that most Leftists would lose it at "We find these Truths to be Self Evident" because Truth is incompatible with Leftist Post Modernism.

Translation: she had no tenable answer to the child's question (because there is none), and therefore started screeching "white supremacy".

Although I'm not sure what white supremacy has to do with trannies? I mean, it seems to me that it would easily be possible to be a tranny AND a white supremacist, yes?

There's a Viking dairy farm in Greenland that has recently been discovered as it emerges from the ice.

Which tells me that part of Greenland was a whole lot warmer in the Viking era, 'cuz dairy cows can't graze on ice.

Which tells me that the claim that the Earth is now warmer than it's been in forty 'leben jillion zillion years is a pile of hot stinking bullshit.

I mean, we KNOW that the Vikings abandoned their bases in Greenland because it suddenly got a lot colder there. There are actual written records of this.

55 So, Never-Trumpers all sing from the same hymnal - they are like minnows in a pond, swimming in unison from some leader, usual some commentator from CNN or Axios or Buzzfeed. The hardest crack pipe for them to put down is Trump, and by association, 50% of the country, are all liars who can't help but lie!

Yet, when challenged about some supposed Trumpian lie, whoopsie! - a lot more nuance is there! The latest is Driscoll, who alternately plays Never-Trumper or maybe is a Trumper! That depends entirely on what party he has that weekend. Now this week he's in the Never-Trumper camp - it's all lies - lying liars who lie - with aclarity! Zut alars! But challenged on that - the usual dissemination occurs that is just intellectually cringe-worthy. God, I hate this breed. I have more respect for the full on Never-Trumper,

63 I've been a landlord for 32 years. The biggest lesson I've learned is that all tenants are pigs. They live in filth, and they either don't notice it, or they don't care.

The reason they are tenants, and not owners, isn't because they're poor; it's because they are stupid. They have no concept of wealth accumulation. They live day to day, surviving on delivery pizza, wasting their money on frivolities, plastic crap, intoxicants and gambling, caring nothing about saving or building a future for themselves.

They don't know where wealth comes from, only that they resent those who've scrounged and worked for it.

Just look at what Beato has done in the last 2 weeks alone - first he came out for national gun registration and gun confiscation, well that kills him in Texas forever; then when the Houston paper asked him to please get serious and run against Cornyn for Senator, he said no, because "The Senate wasn't good enough for him." So, all in for President - except then he said he wasn't going to campaign in Iowa, since Iowa wasn't good enough for him, either.

and now today he comes out and says we should all admit that America was founded on racism, has always been racist, and is still racist today. And we should all be ashamed of America because of that. Now that is one heck of a Presidential Campaign Message.

Well, I introduced Miley to boiled okra tonight. She was skeptical of it, but once she tasted it, she liked it.

I didn't want to boil any store-bought okra, 'cause it's not as good as home grown when boiled. She loved deep-fried okra, and store bought is fine for that. My okra is going to come in soon, but not yet, but a neighbor had some and gave us a mess.

Everyone knows that "Climate Change", like "Gun Control", "Peak Oil", "Student Load Crisis", "Comprehensive Immigration", "Vegetarianism" are all Mac Guffins.

They really don't care about any of that at all for themselves, its merely a way to start the conversation on how you should surrender your life, liberty and property to them.

For an exercise, whenever they pitch their new reason to control every aspect of your life, ask them what you get in exchange.

Clearly, everything they touch is destroyed. When they get all exercised about controlling Home Schoolers because of some lame "social interaction" charge or similar BS, ask them what you get in exchange. The best schools in Baltimore, Detroit and a myriad of other Leftist control government schools are worse than the worst Home School student.

It is never about education and being prepared for a competitive world, it is always about total control and domination.

So the DNC has basically convinced all candidates that the only way to win is to run on a platform of calling everyone racist. It's an amazing strategy.

I wonder if many of these candidates are being hamstrung by 'woke' campaign advisors who don't know how to win anything. Maybe they see the AoC campaign and think the way to the YA vote is to out-woke the next guy.

Either way, I think it turns off all conservatives and at least half the indies. Trump pulls a small percentage of black and Latino votes and it's a landslide.

If you yield to them, guess who has to scoop the poop, before mowing the lawn? (You can't let them mow, because they won't maintain the mower, and will run it dry of oil.) They'll chain a pitbull in the middle of the yard, and then promptly forget they own a pet, and never play with it, and after a few months, it will disappear, who knows where.

When considering the claims of "Rising Sea Levels!!!" it's enlightening to look at places like Pevensey Castle, on the southern coast of England. It was originally one of the Roman Saxon Forts, a series of late Roman coastal fortifications. It overlooked a harbor where a significant Roman fleet was based at the time, to protect shipping in the channel.

Those old remains are now two miles away from the sea, and the old harbor is now all farmland, comfortably above modern sea level. And it's far from the only old Roman era coastal construction that is now found far inland from modern coasts. Ephesus is similar.

I have a couple houses, and expect the tenants to maintain it, and they do. They buy their own mower, or they hire a service. If they don't mow it, then you have a clause in the lease saying that if they don't mow it, you can send the mexicans in to mow it and they have to pay that bill plus 10% to you. I haven't had to worry about it. (multifamily of course you just hire a service to do it)

I love my Nissan Frontier (2013). Needs new tires, but it's a great rig. The payload is rated at 1500 lbs, but I hauled a full pallet of wood flooring home in it. the forklift operator said it weighed in at just short of a ton.

It was also a lot cheaper than the Tacoma (which I've always had my eye on). But part of that might have been that mine is six-speed manual with hand-crank windows and no high-end electronics in the dash. It's a dinosaur truck made for a dinosaur like me. Salesman could not wait to unload it.

Got 47000 miles on it, just getting broke in.

I love that thing. Gonna keep it till I die.

Lyrics say that he's "searching for an overload" which would indicate electric.

But they also say he can hear (presumably) the woman "singing in the wires" which would indicate telephone.

I don't think cable was really a thing at the time he wrote the song. Certainly not in Wichita.

No lease. That gives me the legal right to kick them out in 30 days, no reason needed. I live in a sh!thole city, and I charge a sh!thole rent, so there's no money left to share with prop managers and landscapers.

It takes the entire rent to keep a 114-year-old building standing. I live in the same building, so I keep on top of them. If I knew what I was getting into in 1987, I would not have become a landlord.

The company will allow residents of six states to rent solar-power systems starting at $50 a month - or $65 a month in California - for a small set-up.

Musk says consumers can cancel anytime, although Tesla's website says there's a $1,500 charge to remove panels and restore the roof to its previous condition.

Besides California, rentals will be offered in Arizona, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New Mexico.

I highly recommend it be seen on the big screen. If you decide to see it, either at the theater or on DVD, try not to read much about it beforehand. It has a plot twist that's best left as a surprise.

It comes down to your talent at picking tenants; it's an art more than a science. One of the important parts is to never advertise anything, never tell anyone you have something open. Wait for the right person to ask you about it, and if they're the right person, you can tell them you might have something opening up. Once you develop a reputation, it gets easier than you think it should be.

With *good* tenants, it's the easiest job in the world. I've had a couple older women who were each with me for 15 years, and always kept their places perfect. I've also made some mistakes over the years, but I've learned from them and gotten better and better at it. I've got 13 tenants right now, and I like all of them. Well, one not so much, but he's on dialysis so I can't blame him for being hard to get along with. that's a hard thing to go through.

Spurred by the fatal police shooting of a young unarmed black man that roiled California's capital city, state lawmakers approved changes to the nation's oldest law governing when officers can use deadly force and it was signed by the governor Monday, though even supporters aren't sure it will save many lives.

The new law will allow police to use deadly force only when "necessary" to defend against an imminent threat of death or serious injury to officers or bystanders.

It passed with bipartisan support after major police organizations won concessions and ended their vehement opposition.

Lawmakers dropped an explicit definition of "necessary" that said officers could use maximum force only when there was "no reasonable alternative." They also removed an explicit requirement that officers try to de-escalate confrontations. Law enforcement officials said that would have opened officers to endless second-guessing of what often are split-second, life-and-death decisions.

I lived in CA for 20 years and had always heard it was illegal to pick the state flower, the California Poppy. That turns out to be not true if you pick them from private land, but ... California Penal Code 384a explains that it is in fact legal to pick anyflower -- including the California poppy -- or
any other type of shrub or tree or growing thingy if it's anywhere on
state-owned land.

Today I reamed out the landlord for the house next door. He doesn't live there, NEVER comes to inspect the property. His tenants let their trash pile up for a month. I've cleaned it up for them six times already. Today was the last straw.

Three years ago he had tenants who chucked dirty diapers out the second floor back window, into a big pile in the yard.

Like I mentioned above, all these renters live on delivery pizza. I wish I could afford delivery pizza once in a while.

Should the Dems be stooped enough to actually nominate Biden, you'll be able to deduce their long term plans by who they force upon him for V.P. (guarandamnteeya they won't let Biden make that all-important choice, not in the slightest)

Biden would not last the first two years in office, and I rather doubt he'd make a full first year.

The man's decaying mind, coupled with his utter lack of honesty, character and integrity, will combine to either a resignation or 25th Amendment ejection, tout-suite.

The tell will be that V.P. nomination.

That'll be who the DNC *really* wants to see at the Resolute Desk.

Our job, is help accelerate their non-electability so that these are but mere theories and not serious concerns.

Impossible, unless they're convicted of a felony and you wait until the day after they've started their 20 year prison term. Years ago I also managed properties for other people, learned a lot but got sick of that. (ran about 60 houses at the peak) Agreed to take some section 8 - I remember the Vietnamese family, seemed nice but after they moved out, all of the sheetrock had to be yanked out and replaced because it was all saturated with sesame oil or whatever they cooked with and the whole place stank too much for anyone else to stand it.

They also had this weird pit in the back yard, all burnt and stinky, and we finally figured out that was where they would drop their little pig and roast it anytime they had family over or something. Right in the middle of the city.

but I knew a guy in Florida once who'd rented to some people into Santeria, and the entire kitchen, including walls , had to be ripped out because every surface, even the ceiling, was soaked with chicken blood. At least he hoped it was chicken blood.

Posted by: Aetius451AD Work Laptop at August 19, 2019 10:26 PM (gmtFW)

Well, what it is, is dumb. As in weapons-grade stupid. Solar cells are expensive. And inefficient. If you decide to buy them, the smart thing to do with is place them in a frame so that the Sun's rays shine on them normal to the plane of the cells' surface. Every degree of inclination from normal, 90 degrees, reduces the output. Putting them in the plane of the road, at the latitude of Normandy, probably halves their output.

Then, armoring them up with clear plastic resin, to withstand the traffic, further reduces light transmittance, and dirt and scratches further reduce what's left.

Not to mention that passing cars and trucks throw shade on the cells, reducing their output to near-zero. It's just plain dumb; there's no upside at all.

381 We lived in a very nice, middle-class (for CA) neighborhood in Orange County for 10 years, right before the housing bubble burst.


Because everybody was trying to get rich by buying multiple homes, watching them appreciate $100k/year, and flipping them -- many homes in our neighborhood were rentals. As a result, we ended up with a bunch of scum who partied every and all night, including our next-door turd-world Filipino neighbors.

Calling the police was useless, as well as complaining to the HOA (all garages were to be used for parking your vehicles, but they turned theirs into a party den for their loser 18-year-old son and provided free alcohol to buy him some friends).

Calling the police was futile because, of course, WE WERE THE BAD GUYS for complaining that they woke us up multiple times in the middle of the night, urinated on and eventually kicked down our common fence, threw litter all over the neighborhood including dozens of pieces of gum at us because we complained, etc. [I literally fantasized about how to murder them and get away with it.]

Yes, except here they are called landlord-hating groups. Everything bad that happens to tenants is the landlord's fault, by default. Democrats call it "fairness." Landlords call it expensive legal risk. There was a sob-story in the Daily Mail a couple weeks ago about how Baltimore renters live in filth because their landlords are evil people.

Aside from the rent thing, they'd been more or less good tenants and kept the place in good shape.

Once he served them the papers, they bashed a bunch of holes in the walls, spraypainted everything, and locked the dogs in the house for a couple days to piss and shit everywhere.

The salesmen promise impossible rates of return, hire whores to entice the marks, and nobody reads the prospectuses. The dopes buy the sh!t, and the bosses of the dopes pat them on the head, and give them raises on top of their six-figure salaries.

When was the last time you saw the SEC mentioned in a news article? It's been years since I've heard anything about them. Their website is still up, so that's something I guess.

Anybody who buys stock at the top of a ten year rally needs their heads examined. Anybody who buys bonds from a govt indebted by $24 trillion dollars must be coocoo for cocoa puffs.

LOL.

Manual labor is not the foundation of any advanced society. It's just labor that is replaceable by every Tom, Dick and Harry.

And Western slavery was really nothing compared to the Indian caste system. It's not even in the same league. Imagine that people were classified as "Untouchable", and there was absolutely no way around that. "Untouchable" ... forever ... even the concept boggles the mind.

No where in history had this been done.

It was fortunate that the Industrial age and the Steam Age following by the 4-cycle and Diesel engine was right on their heels.

Without all the labor saving implements, inventions and because of nationally distributed electric power we would probably still have some form of slavery.

Slavery served a purpose which is why it was universally practiced for thousands of years all over the world; Cheap labor/work.

It only continues to exist in Muslim countries because they're retarded mentally and emotionally. And also economically.

540 Our fiat money system (system? Hah) has to have new investors to keep it afloat. Luckily there are so many rich that they need to park their money somewhere or the entire financial edifice would come tumbling down.
Some keep claiming it will eventually fail but I disagree. Too many self interested actors. However an accident (like when the new algorithms screwed up Wall street) or some other mistake could unbalance the whole thing and that could mean trouble. Or more likely some foreigners get together to destabilize it and succeed but then find out they can't replace it fast enough and that too many people won't buy into their new system and it fails and we're all back to the iron age in an instant. (looking at you Russia and China!)

There are good and not so good aspects of section 8. They at least screen the tenants for felonies and past evictions. The money is consistent. You do have more paperwork, there are certain restrictions and requirements, and evictions have a very complicated due process system. You probably need an attorney to help with it.

It was of course many years ago, back when surgeons operated with honed pieces of flint and and phlebotomists still carried bags of leeches, but my mother came home from shopping to find my father (who'd had open-heart surgery nine years ago) slouched in a living-room chair barely breathing.

Ambulance, intensive care, then at 1AM the heart valve put in years before, failed. Fortunately he was wired to the wazoo and well attended.

The surgeon who'd worked on him the first time was dragged out of bed and they operated until daylight. He got a few more years out of that.

But if that's what's really going on then some changes need to be made to make the system a bit safer and fairer.

Also it requires "faith" that the value will remain stable.

Posted by: jakee308 - Hylozoist at August 20, 2019 01:18 AM (cxIsI)


Yep. Nothing wrong with fiat currency. In fact, it's the best type of currency (when done correctly). But the fault for screwing up the dollar doesn't really sit with the Fed. It was Congress that screwed everything up by taking the Fed off of its actual job - maintaining the integrity of the dollar (value stability). When Congress gave the Fed the dual mandate that included "full employment", which the Fed has no business even considering ... that was all she wrote. Nothing was going to save the dollar after that.

Sure, while we were on the gold standard we didn't have to worry about this sort of stuff because the Fed was so highly restricted by the requirement for physical gold in order to print money ... but even off the gold standard it would have been very possible to have the Fed do a decent job. But once Congress laid that dual mandate in the Fed's lap the die was cast. That was all Congress' fault. Period. And it was easily known to have been a totally retarded idea from the very start. The dollar is cut away from gold and right afterwards the Fed is given total carte blanche to do anything it wants. Anything. But, that's Congress for you.

Churchill knew as much, too. His 'Unity' government was not fighting the war to save France, or kill Nazis, or Save Democracy (TM), it was fighting the war to be free to implement the welfare state and the NHS. They were very open about this. Churchill may have derided this dude:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stafford_Cripps

as 'Sir Stifford Crapps' but in the end Cripps got away with his Russian-fluffing, right down to getting Attlee to sell Stalin the Nene turbojet that, translated into Cyrillic, would power the MiG-15.

Meanwhile FDR was all 'nyaah, nyaah, you thought we'd give this back?' about the Empire. The Brits, being even more exhausted and indebted than they were in 1919, couldn't do much.

Feckless Eden played his game at Suez but Eisenhower and especially Dulles thought (at that point) that Nasser's shit didn't stink. I guess the UAR had invented Febreze with a little Soviet help.

Now that all depends on where the prison is located from where you lived/tried and convicted. Case in point: Being sent to Sing Sing was being sent 'up the river' as it was on the Hudson River north of NYC, the locale from which many imprisoned criminals departed to serve time.

I always thought it was 'being sold down the river', a phrase related to slavery days.

Elizabeth Warren to Actual Indians: I'm Like Sorry or Whatever I Claimed to be an Indian Everytime I Was Applying for a Job or Running for Senate

Actually she didn't say that; she should have said that.

What she offered was a calculatedly vague non-apology:

"Like anyone who has been honest with themselves, I know I have made mistakes," the Massachusetts senator said at a forum on Native American issues in this pivotal early voting state. "I am sorry for the harm I have caused."

This outgassing of calculated haze and obscurity provides three benefits for her:

1, it permits her to claim she apologized, but

2, it offers no specific admissions of definite actions or intent which could be used against her in the upcoming months, and

3, it is the predicate for a Hillary Clinton Special -- claiming "these questions have all been raised and answered" when in fact exactly none of these questions were ever answered.

She has never asked her schools to open up her files and reveal whether she used her claimed Indian heritage for advancement, or whether such claimed heritage was ever a factor in her advancement.


Monday's remarks were an effort to move past the fallout from her past claims of tribal ancestry, which culminated in a widely criticized release of a DNA analysis last year...

Now that Warren is gaining in most polls, she's trying to prove to voters that the controversy won't doom her in a general election matchup against Trump. The detailed policy agenda to help Native Americans that she released last week helped her secure a warm reception from attendees at the tribal forum.

After drawing a standing ovation, Warren said "I have listened and I have learned a lot" from conversations with Native Americans in recent months, describing herself as "grateful" for the dialogue.

Oh -- like Hillary Clinton's "Listening Tour," after which she declared all questions you have about my corruption have been answered.

...

She did not receive any questions about her own background.

...

As of Monday, her campaign website’s page containing a video and other materials Warren had released on the DNA analysis was no longer active.


She isn't resigning the Senate seat she won partly on the basis of claiming to be partly Cherokee and partly Delaware:



And open thread.

I think she will end up being the candidate. My millennial Jewish half-brother has adored her from the beginning. I will at least give her the credit due to someone who was canny enough to rise from the lower middle class to the "elite" by using her brains and being savvy to the racket that claiming that Native heritage could give her a leg up. At least she didn't marry a scumbag and tag along for the ride like Hillary.

That being said, if she is the nominee, Trump will win. Many women do not like to vote for women. Men will lie and say they are voting for her and then in the privacy of the ballot box will think about how a woman's brain is 1/3 the size of a man's and vote Trump.

On further reflection, mif'al is not common in Arabic and when it does appear, it is generally a loanword. "minbar" is supposed to be Ethiopic and "mihrab", Yemeni. I'd assumed it was more common than it was because, hey, mostly I read the Quran and not actual classical Arabic.

they are black, Indian, Asian. It's like an epidemic of bullshittery.


And then they really and truly expect the rest of us to not notice that they're lying and then even expect us to respect them as leaders.

Our Founders were so right to keep government small and relatively weak, precisely to prevent what we see going on now. They never meant for politics to become a profession because it attracts the lowest of the low: those who seek power over others.

Energy Star, the federal program from the DOE and the Environmental Protection Agency, said the coolest you should keep your home is 78 degrees when you're home.

When you're at work or away, the program recommends setting it at 85 degrees. When you're sleeping, Energy Star said to set the thermostat at 82 degrees.

Epstein and Maxwell were guests of Andy at Balmoral - for his 40th. Also, at a b-day party for the queen, the queen's sister and a few other royals. Epstein was burrowed in like a tick with that family, no doubt at Andy's invitation.

142 An apology is MEANINGLESS if it doesn't state WHAT EXACTLY you did wrong.

"Apology" is a speech in defense of an accusation. Many people gratuitously assume that it also involves repentance.

Lets say that someone decided to smash her in the face with a baseball bat. They could make an apology by saying "you deserved it, and I would do it again.. hold still". That is an apology because it is in defense of an accusation of battery.

Repentance is something totally different, and is a characteristic completely unknown to any of the Left.

Yesterday I decided to go for a swim at the club pool. Laid out my gear for lap swimming and was just entering the water when a H1B anchor baby jumped in just seconds ahead of me. The father came up and said "I'm sorry, but my kid wanted to go swim". That was it. No action to remove his son from the lane. I asked "when you said I'm sorry did you really mean Fuck You? because if you were indeed sorry, your undisciplined and rude child would not be continuing on, and you wouldn't be making lame excuses for why I should just accept this antisocial behavior".

Their culture, a passive-aggressive one is where they will due rude and obnoxious things, lie to you about being sorry, but continue on as if those words were magical. Sort of like putting a smiley emoticon after an insult.

The Left is very much like that.

143 Arabic and Hebrew are not mutually intelligible but if you know one then it is easy to learn the other.

In European terms, it might be like a Frog trying to learn Italian.

French and Italian separated more recently, but Hebrew and classical Arabic are mostly fossilised from an earlier date. Modern Arabic dialects on the other hand are nuts, especially out in Morocco and Algeria where they are stuffed with Berberisms and French.

Go to the Daily Mail homepage and scroll down and read the Epstein/Prince Andrew stuff. Too many stories to link one by one.

Anyway, flight logs prove Andrew and the then 17-year old girl Virginia Roberts were in the same place at the same time every time she claimed he sexed her.

Also, Andy was warned to stay away from Epstein 'cause of his taste for underaged girls, and Andy replied, "Don't be a Puritan!". So....

And, I think someone above mentioned it -- Ghislaine staged that whole In-Out Burger photo. The dog wasn't even hers, but her lawyer's dog.

So I tell him about my American accent. And he replies in Russian. Then I see his nametag is Dmitriy. So we're talking in Russian, and then he says in English, "You do have a bad American accent."

If he and Maxwell ran girls by the thousand through there they are probably married or have established lives on their on.

In that Vanity Fair article that was linked the other day he said, and he was answering a question about Maxwell, that his girlfriends, at the end of a relationship, are better off than before.

They should have kept him alive and took him to court.

Yes, on the rare occasion I apologize it's mostly for me, to clear my conscience. I like to be forgiven, but I need to do what I can to come clean, and if not, well then, I did what I could. And it will be an unqualified "I was wrong."

But if I don't think I've done something wrong, you won't drag an apology out of me with a blowtorch. All that does is hand someone a cudgel, who already attacked you and demanded an apology for nothing.

The Fox and other talking heads apparently don't believe them to be worth a shit, either, based on how little they reference these polls.

Well, Trump is a polarizing guy. If you voted for him last time, during the onslaught of opprobrium for Trump, and the constant drumbeat of Hillary's inevitability and the final destruction of deplorable America, you're not changing your mind.

Conversely, if you're dedicated enough to drag yourself to a voting booth for Empress Thundershart in order to stop him, neither are you.

If your people aren't close to the middle, they're unlikely to come along.

Trump's win alone is enough to legitimize him in the eyes of many formerly skeptical/reluctant voters. Moreover, his performance has been solid, and he's avoided enraging the Right or the center so far. And I believe the media's perpetual four alarm, level eleven freakout is perversely further legitimizing him, by virtue of their shrieking madness turning people off.

360 Trump routinely draws over 10 thousand people to his rallies. Thousand of people who can't get in stand outside the event and watch it on big screens.

--------

And we're into campaign season, so that's helpful.

But, here's what I found fascinating: when, early last year, dead bang in the middle of "retail politics don't matter because no one cares right now" season, this dude was packing arenas.

With electric crowds, and a weird, energetic feedback loop that jacks up both the audience and the candidate.

That's when I knew something was really up, and began watching every rally. It really is fascinating to see a candidate roll like this.

I can't remember Reagan well, but maybe he did.

There is almost no escaping it. Depending on where you go it's illegals, or crazies and bums, or obnoxious H1B's, or antifa goons. Or some combination of any of those.

It's going to get really interesting during the Face Colander times; farther from CA's orbit than OR, and a smaller population than most think. And with a smaller percentage of turf under the writ of the state capitol, with significant geographical barriers already in place between regular America and batshit-land.

374 Even before Kerry was nominated, the polls showed him all through the late summer, autumn and early winter of 2003/2004 beating Bush. It's the same bullshit every time. The only way Trump loses is if the economy tanks, and that effort is well underway. There will be massive voter fraud but Trump probably will get the monster turn out to offset it.

One difference is Fox is Never Trump overall but like all news outlets its power and influence has waned and collapsed.


All that written, is some ways Warren or another Marxist-lite probably is the greatest threat to Trump, particularly if the economy gets shaky. Fox and the rest of the cucks want Biden but that ain't happening. The Democrats aren't even about to hide their preference for socialism this time out and will vote accordingly.

I'm hoping that was the strategy, and it seems to be, so far.

But I think it's easy for Trump. He can offer things like he did with DACA, knowing it would kill him with the base, but also knowing the Dems will NOT give him an inch.

End result: nothing important changes, the Left looks insane, and he looks "reasonable."

At least, I think that's the play he runs. It's hard to tell with him.

PAUL REVERE AND THE RAIDERS

"Indian Reservation"





(John D. Loudermill)








They took the whole Cherokee nation
Put us on this reservation
Took away our ways of life
The tomahawk and the bow and knife
Took away our native tongue
And taught their English to our young
And all the beads we made by hand
Are nowadays made in Japan

Cherokee people, Cherokee tribe
So proud to live, so proud to die

They took the whole Indian nation
Locked us on this reservation
Though I wear a shirt and tie
I'm still part redman deep inside

Cherokee people, Cherokee tribe
So proud to live, so proud to die
But maybe someday when they learn
Cherokee nation will return, will return,
will return, will return, will return

Posted by: Yudhishthira's Dice at August 19, 2019 09:22 PM (5aX2M)

I was lucky enough to see Reagan give a speech live, once, and of courses a lot on TV. Reagan was the most dynamic, compelling speaker that I have ever seen in politics, he was up there with the best professional motivational speakers I have ever seen. Democrats derided the fact that he had been an actor, without understanding that he had spent his entire life learning how to reach out and not just communicate, but to reach people and make people believe he was on their side.

Trump is good - Trump is by far better than any current politician, but he's really just a good old fashioned populist, with a pugnacious streak. He's been handed a huge opportunity because the MSM pitches lies so outrageously that one man who stands up and says 'THEY ARE LYING!" looks like a genius.

Trump is the man for his time - but Reagan was a once in a century orator, almost on the level of a Lincoln or a Jefferson. It was a joy and a privilege just to be able to listen to him.

Is there one sane Democrat? The ones I see have all of these utterly bizarre behaviors and weird ideas.

Beato: no idea what he's doing...he looks odd and is all jumpy like he's shaking his dick at a urinal, all the while saying everyone in the US is a huge racist. How Presidential is that? Good grief.

Buttyjugg: guy gets all pissy when he talks about Christians, and then slams them, all the while having this insane insincere aw-shucks bullshit facade. Plus, he is married to a dude...not Presidential.

Kamala the Ugandan Giant: where is she...who is she.

Biden: lost his marbles, can't keep his lies straight...not Presidential.

Apache Joan: that fucking voice of hers, worse than fingernals on a chalkboard, like a billion fingernails on a billion chalkboards. That fake pleading, searching for truth and all that. So fake and preposterous.

I was in 6th grade, and another student, a girl who fashioned herself an actress, gave a presentation on Helen Keller...she had the same fake and over-earnest bullshit...as soon as the girl started in with the first word "Water..." I completely lost it, there was something so ridiculous about the whole thing, so over-acting and performancy. I couldn't take it, and was doubling up in laughter, I got in real trouble with the nun, although she was a progressive nun, she was laughing at my laughing.

Perhaps what made it funny to me was the absolute cluelessness of that girl, she had no idea how goddamned stupid she looking being all actressy and fake. I saw right through it.

Injun Joan is the same, completely fake but she doesnt know how stupid she sounds.

Chondritis
can feel like that, often gets mistaken for a heart attack. Its an
inflammation of cartilage. You might get a small pain spike in the
center of your chest if you try to stretch out your arms out, and
sometimes breathing. Usually it can hurt to the touch. I would get it
occasionally from working with tools and pulling big torque with a
torque wrench or breaker bar. BUT....but, I never felt tired. Thats a tad scary sounding, and I wouldn't screw around with this. You don't get second chances.

That's probably not a bad description - I've seen some old film of him, Huey could be spellbinding in front of a crowd. There's a reason FDR in the beginning thought Huey Long was his most dangerous rival. Also, people forget that Huey Long was one of the first Southern Democrats to actively court and appeal to the Black Vote, and he did it very well. Democrats eventually absorbed almost all of Huey Long's platform except for the wealth confiscation, and even that they still long for.

Beato is really entering totally unexplored territory - I don't think *any* candidate for a major office has ever gone out, with a big budget, and *deliberately* destroy their chances to ever win any public office, ever!

Just look at what Beato has done in the last 2 weeks alone - first he came out for national gun registration and gun confiscation, well that kills him in Texas forever; then when the Houston paper asked him to please get serious and run against Cornyn for Senator, he said no, because "The Senate wasn't good enough for him." So, all in for President - except then he said he wasn't going to campaign in Iowa, since Iowa wasn't good enough for him, either.

and now today he comes out and says we should all admit that America was founded on racism, has always been racist, and is still racist today. And we should all be ashamed of America because of that. Now that is one heck of a Presidential Campaign Message.

Former "Republican" Turned MSNBC Propagandist Nicolle Wallace: Trump Might Be Removed Via the 25th Amendment for the Alzheimer's We're Going to Conspiracy-Theorize Into Reality

Your weekly reminder that this cadre of determined Wine Mom liberals used to completely dominate the Republican Party and the "conservative" media, and still 75% dominates it.

Remember, this is the woman whose job it was to guide Sarah Palin through the 2008 election, but set her up without preparation for an interview with her pal Katie Couric.

Also, for some reason, there were lots and lots of leaks coming out of the few people who worked with Sarah Palin, and for some reason, the tell-all book Game Change depicted Niccole Wallace as a hero.

I wonder why.

A few weeks ago, Niccolle Wallace -- one of the smart, respectable people in the GOP until The GOP Left Her -- stated that Donald Trump had called for the "extermination" of Latinos.

"President Obama used the power of the presidency to try to pass comprehensive immigration reform, with the Latino community, Latino leaders, at the table. You now have a president, as you said, talking about exterminating Latinos," she continued.

She retracted this claim, but not on tv, just on Twitter.

She learned that from Jake Tapper.

Now this dim-bulb backstabbing social-climbing conspiracy theorist uncorks a fetid new conspiracy theory: Trump may have already been given a neurological exam to determine the extent of his Alzheimer's.

JOYCE VANCE: You know there's pervasive reporting in this regard and if it was grandpa you would probably take him to see a neurologist or someone who specialized in geriatric medicine. That hasn't hasn't happened here...

WALLACE: That we know of...

Rich Lowry won't be demanding the deplatforming of his liberal friends, though.

They don't have to give true evidence of racism, their (fake) science is settled. They don't give examples of dementia, they just assume it.


Trump speaks extemporaneously on multiple subjects and as someone that dealt with someone developing true dementia, Trump's abilities are proof he is extremely capable, while many on the left shows signs of dementia which I would diagnose as cult derangement syndrome, exacerbate by the Trump election (from ultra sane Trump voters).

They think of Trump as The Pied Piper who took the base away from them and they resent the hell out of him for doing so.

What they don't grasp is that a critical number on the right are never going back to the reservation.

If they ever succeed they will put themselves into permanent minority status which they are probably fine with as long as they keep their token conservative status and the party invitations keep arriving.

Total bullshit.

Obama had the first two years of his presidency when he could have passed any damn thing he wanted because the Dims controlled both houses of congress. He never even tried to get "comprehensive immigration reform "(i.e. massive amnesty/open borders) passed. Instead, he shot his wad on his socialist health care wet dream, because he didn't really give a damn about "immigration reform." He like the situation exactly as it was.

Obama did nothing on immigration until he ordered DACA, which was unconstitutional, by his own admission. And he only did that to lock up the hispanic vote so he could get re-elected.

119 Obama did nothing on immigration until he ordered DACA, which was unconstitutional, by his own admission. And he only did that to lock up the hispanic vote so he could get re-elected.
Posted by: TrivialPursuer at August 19, 2019 07:21 PM (k4dH2)


The beautiful thing about Obama's "I have a pen and a phone" legacy is the way Trump could just erase it the same way Obama enacted it. If you want your programs to last, you probably should think about trying to get them through Congress.

The exception, of course, was DACA, which Obama apparently inserted into the constitution with an executive order.

takeaway: FBI and govt are a bunch of liquor-swilling careerist drunks
whose number one job is kissing ass, and number two job is pretending to
like it. The ones who aren't drunk are perverts who see themselves in
the monsters they chase.

I loved the part where even though the BSU was the FBI Director's darling, they still had to deal with incredible bureaucracy. Want a couple of crosses knocked together? We have to fill all this paperwork out and there are two competing groups that are fighting over who should do the work. Want these flyers printed up? You have to have a work order and print number and oh, sorry, you want the flyers posted in six different jurisdictions, that's gonna take a month to get all the paperwork figured out.

Trump's constant assault on people of color and his use of the word "invasion" to describe the flow of immigrants is intentional and constant.

4. H1B's for everything. Under Obama, sure give us everyone. especially the fecund ones.
5. Sell American citizenship to Chinese businessmen...and their entire extended families. That money is now part of Obama's stash.

If Trump could pull that off it would be the greatest US purchase since Alaska. It would be awesome.

I just can't believe the Danes would sell Greenland. It would be cheaper to just invade it and take it over ... which is how national land should be gotten, because if a government can't protect territory then it doesn't govern it.

251 These people have a terrible understanding of the 25th Amendment. First off, the Vice President must be on board for any attempt to declare the President unable to perform his duties. Does anybody here really think Mike Pence would be up for that? Also, the President resumes duties immediately upon informing the Speaker and President Pro temps that he can perform them. If there is still a dispute after that, a two thirds majority of both houses have to declare the President unfit for him to be relieved of his duties.

This isn't going to happen. What Republican with hopes of reelection would vote to remove? Especially considering that, even if Trump does have Alzheimer's, he is still a much better choice than any of the Democrat candidates.

(I know, if Trump is removed we get Pence, not one of the Democrats, but a removal from office would have the same effect as conceding the next election to the Democrat nominee.)

He's just going to have to run to beat the margin of fraud. The FEC is Leftist Deep State. At the state level, even (R) SecStates will certify dirty votes. Any plan he makes will be stalled by the Courts, and any that pass that hurdle will be openly defied by all agencies responsible for enforcement.

If America had any money to purchase it with, it might be worth it, but it looks like a luxury item purchase, when we're already $24 trillion in (publicly acknowledged) debt.

Besides, we might need the money to defend Hong Kong, since we seem to be encouraging the HKongs to resist China. I'm sure we'll have their backs when the tanks roll in.

320 Fiscal conservatism was never alive. The "free market" part was a thing, and a decent thing in theory. But there was no attempt at controlling immigration, which is a necessary adjunct. There was no attempt to cut down spending, or borrowing, or to rein in entitlements - also necessary. No attempt to enforce trade deals that require trading partners to behave in good faith.

Fiscal conservatism was just a fig leaf used by GOP politicians who governed as liberals, while selling us out to foreigners for personal gain.

If a fiscal conservative comes along who isn't a treasonous, pocket lining secret Democrat, then I'm on board.

Palin's career was wrecked the second McRINO asked her to join the team. If she'd have said "no" the same GOPe character assassins would've started leaking like sieves about what a non team player she was and my guess is that would have set her back forever. So yes, she was naive to think the old goat and his team of losers really wanted to win by exploiting Gaylord's obvious weaknesses. And as it was, her acceptance gave the only excitement that team McRINO generated.

But she realistically was torpedoed when offered a spot on the ticket. What she really was naive about was helping the old backstabber in his subsequent Senate run, which didn't stop him from trashing her to "his friends" in the unfree press.

McCain was the worst. I'm sorry I voted for him and Romney. Never again, GOP.

Conservatives don't have to love God publicly. It's pretty much a "thing" in the New Testament that you're supposed to indicate that you believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and desire to be his disciple. It doesn't mean that you have to say that all the time, but your faith is probably meaningless if you never do. And no it doesn' t means that you can' t be a nice person who does nice things if you don't do that. It doesn't mean you're a great person if you browbeat people over the head with this either

If never told anyone I loved my husband or thought he was a terrific fellow except him in private it wouldn't ne a good thing either. By not be endorsing him publicly ever he might wonder if I love him and desire to be in a relationship with him

And since I was the only who said anything about this, Bander, I expect you don't need to worry about making friends..

In Wake of ICE Raid and Reduction of Illegal Workforce, Over 200 Americans Apply for Jobs at Koch Foods Chicken Plant

Jobs that Americans will do, if you stop letting illegals do them.

By the way, this is not the same Koch as the famous left-libertarian Koch brothers' company.

But do feel free to make that connection in your head.

A state official said Wednesday that more than 200 people applied for jobs at a chicken processing plant in Morton during a job fair held Monday.

Koch Foods, one of four companies with plants in six small Mississippi towns, was targeted in a massive federal immigration raid on Aug. 7. It contacted the state employment agency the same day to request its help in hiring workers.

...

Dianne Bell, communications director at MDES, said the [jobs] fair, originally scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., was extended to 5 p.m. because of the number of applicants. She also said the number would likely be updated beyond the 216.

As a kid, landscaping used to be done by high school and college kids during the summer break.

Only caveat... from a service quality standpoint not much difference at fast food with an illegal that might have a poor command of English and a millennial that might have a poor command of work ethic.

Had a millennial knowingly give me a cop of carbonated water because they were out of coke syrup without mentioning it... just because, I assume. Made sense to him.

Once in industry I applied for a job at a neighboring company for which I was the perfect candidate; the job description could have been written from my resume, I had extensive experience in exactly what they were looking for, a friend and mentor of mine was on the board of directors, and the company was about 200 yards away from where I was working at the time.

Never heard a peep from them. Not a word. Not even enough curiosity to ask me to shuffle down the street for a look-see.

Inference: they had an internal H1B candidate, and were merely advertising to say they couldn't any American qualified.

How so? Paolo (It) is Paulo (Brz) is Pablo (Mex) is Paulus (Lat) is Paul, that wretched little gnome who used to be Saul and then got all SJW scoldy.

There had to be a name for Paul in Italian before Dante.

197 To the consumer, there is little difference in the job bid from contractor #1 who employs illegal aliens and contractor #2 who employs American citizens. Both groups work equally hard and do a similar quality job. The difference is the contractor pays the illegals less and doesn't pay payroll and other taxes; effectively pocketing that money as extra profit.

I'm not against making money, but there's such a thing as "pricing yourself out of the market." With CEO's asking and getting astronomical compensation packages, there's a lot of incentive to keep the costs of the rank-and-file employees way down so they'll keep getting their handsome salaries. Hence the attraction of illegals who'll work for peanuts. Inventive accountants can disguise those costs a Brazillion different ways, furthering the attraction of underhanded business practices.

Not wanting to pay your employees well is just plain old greed. None of those greedy assholes ever stop to think how they'd like it if that was done to them.

Well, some gov't workers don't get raises that put them ahead of inflation. In that sense they can experience downward wage pressure.

315 And THEN they carp about not enough American youth studying STEM.

STEM is a tough row to hoe; I advised my sons against going into it myself.

The coursework is demanding - much more so than any other subject, I suspect - and the job prospects are limited. Academic positions are difficult to come by, and industrial positions hit an armor-plated ceiling after a while.*

One problem I saw in industry was that business guys know eff-all about STEM, and default to credentialism. As a consequence of that, and being generally pretty dull, they consider all Ph.D.s for example to be equivalent, and a brand-new Ph.D., who comes a lot cheaper, looks to them like a better bet than those with more experience. Would they prefer having a surgery performed by a brand-new MD, or by someone who's done surgery for many years? The answer is obvious, but they're generally not bright enough to think of that.

I used to have to fight pressure from the business guys to replace older scientists (and by older, I mean 40ish) with 20ish ones. Madness.

* Here's your calibration: business guys in a big corporation used to disdain scientists for top management because "they're too narrow." At the same time they used to worship Jack Welch as their model. He was God, as far as they were concerned.

"Oh, you mean DR. Jack Welch? That one?"

They looked puzzled. Jack Welch has a Ph.D. in chemical engineering, but everyone has something to hide, and he certainly hid that effectively.

Ive qorked aide by side with a lot of legal immigrants, from many different countries. They were just as hard working as illegals.

All the companies are easy to spot. Dalton, Georgia is overrun with Hispanics. That's because Dalton carpets fired all the blacks and hired Hispanics, mostly illegals.

Hanover, Pennsylvania is also overrun with Hispanics. I believe that can be attributed to Mohawk industries.

In both cases the towns were not historically Hispanic and had massive changes in demographics over the last 20 years. Easy to spot

Fredo's Older Brother, Governor Fredo Due Cuomo: How Dare You Call My Brother Fredo "Fredo" and Slur All Italians With Your Racisty Racist Claim That All Italians are in the Mafia

So the Other Fredo is claiming like OG Fredo claimed, that calling an Italian "Fredo" is a slur on par with the n-word because... because obviously if you call someone "Fredo," you're saying he's the second eldest natural child of the fictitious Corleone crime family.


What a goombah.

From the New York Daily News:

"Italian Americans are not Mafia," [Governor Fredo] Cuomo told WAMC radio. "Don't you dare liken my family to the family you saw in The Godfather or the The Sopranos."

"Don't you dare?"

What, you gonna make us an offer we can't refuse, paesano?

You gonna send us a, como se dic' ?, Sicilian telegram of a fish on ice?

[Older Fredo] Cuomo said bigotry and slurs aimed at Italians [are] as dangerous as xenophobia and anti-Semitism, citing the mass shootings in El Paso and at a Pittsburgh synagogue last year.

Now the word "Fredo" might trigger an anti-Italian mass shooting?

Are you serious, Other Fredo?

"It's all ugliness," he said.

Along with "Fredo," which refers to a thick-headed character in the famed mafia flick, [Other Fredo] Cuomo railed against the use of other anti-Italian insults, like "wop" and "dago."

Calling your stupid runt brother a stupid runt is now the same as actual ethnic slurs?

Go get your ****ing shinebox.

Update: An actor from the Godfather, who played Connie's abusive, treacherous husband, says that Fredo Cuomo is an uomo d'mierde.

"I couldn’t understand, because he's such an intelligent kid, educated and everything else. I heard he's hurt his career," the 75-year-old actor told TMZ, adding that Cuomo’s father, the late ex-Gov. Mario Cuomo, "would smack him" if he heard the rant.

"All these news guys, they're so opinionated," Russo said. "It's not about what you think. And you’'e taking Fredo, a character from a classic? It’s like spitting on the Mona Lisa."

Fredo is intelligent?

You lost me from the beginning there, paesan.

Also -- CNN staffers "embarrassed" by the Fredo rant.

Thanks to Jane D'Oh.

It's an Elizabethan short form of "Diego." Both Spanish and Italian diplomatic types were unpopular among English nationalists in that period, mostly because they were always bringing new candidates for King of England. And so (Spanish first) they got a rude nickname.

I'd be willing to bet there were plenty of English cruise directors, talk-show hosts and hookers who liked them just fine.

171 Sicilian or Italian?

Because Fredo is claiming we're slurring all Italians.



I know. I'm stirring up trouble on purpose. Most Italian Americans are of southern descent, Sicilian, Calabrese, Napolitano. So when they say Italian they mean "us".

But many northern Italians don't really recognize them as Italian. Like my blue eyed blonde girlfriend from Milano, as Dennis Hopper said, a wop from the north of Italy.

She denied that wop could come from guapo because that's not a word in Italian. But it is a word in a Mediterranean dialect that shares a lot with Spanish.

Let me put it this way, Diana won't eat pasta with a tomato sauce because it offends her sensibilities.

Here, I'll just finish with maximum damage. Garibaldi did not unite Italy, he divided Africa.

212 This seems to be an unforced error on the elder brothers part.

Given the short attention span in the 24 hour news cycle even a meme as good as Fredo will die down if you ignore it.
