11 It's sorta hard to overestimate how much of an impact Project Veritas will potentially have in 2020 after the media makes a bonfire of its scant remaining credibility.

Yep. But a very good reason James O'Keefe needs to keep his head on a swivel and not become the next Seth Rich.

19 I have been in small rooms with Van Jones.

He was a total commie. Flat-out.

Then he was anointed by the white lefty decision-makers as a good "face on the movement" because he was "handsome," and given training to tpne his message down so he could go on TV and get appointed by Obama to some post, etc.

But underneath that facade was the most extreme political opinions I've ever encountered.

Posted by: zombie at June 28, 2017 01:00 PM (DQ4Fv)

20 This is the second thing Van Jones has said that is critical of democrats/obama/clintons. Is he out of work and needs a job? Trying to rehabilitate himself? Fleeing a sinking ship?

37 And yet, there are millions of Democrats--far more than 9/11 Truthers--who will go to their grave believing the lie that Russia "hacked" the election.

A purposeful, willful, malicious lie--that they knew the more stupid among them would believe no matter what.

104 Wasn't their attempt to deflect that the producer in the first video doesn't cover Trump or Russia so what he was saying is all pointless? You know because a guy working at CNN has no contact or discussions with the other people working there so he couldn't possibly know what others were saying. I take it commie Van Jones has actually been in on the Trump Russia stuff so it will be interesting to see how they try to deflect this.

Yep, back when Glenn was sane.

I miss that Beck, had a lot of fun with his research in college.

I still say he (and/or his team) was one of the best researchers and presenters at the time.

So...the GOPe doesn't really want their media outlets to dig too deep. Imagine, for example, if their was a Watergate level scandal for Obama with his unmasking scandal. Do you think the GOPe wants to have 280+ House Seats, 60 Senate Seats and the Presidency? Why Trump would actually make them cut down on the pork and graft!

The Russia lie began at the DNC Convention last summer as a way for the Clinton campaign to quell the Bernie revolt. The leaks began the week before and blaming the Russians was a nice jab at Bernie since he was known as a sympathizer. Once Trump won the election then they pivoted to Trump's collusion with Russia to give the D rank-and-file something else to blame besides the DNC leadership - notice how all the same people are basically still in charge and trying to rehab Hillary for another run (after a loss that should have led to wholesale cleaning house)?

The icing is this investigation into Bernie and his wife. It's not a Republican-driven investigation, the R's would LOOOOVE for Bernie to be nominated in 2020. This is being done from the D side to eliminate the threat he poses to the Clinton machine's chances to nominate her again.

Trump: Friend of Israel

I didn't care all that much for Nikki Haley when she was governor of mumblemumble Carolina, but she's been tearing it up ever since Trump appointed her as our ambassador to the U.N.

In the tradition of our best U.N. ambassadors — Daniel Patrick Moynihan and Jeane Kirkpatrick — Haley has been a powerful voice against U.N. hypocrisy. Most notably, she has denounced U.N. hypocrisy regarding Israel.

Read the whole piece at Powerline.

I would hazard a guess that Israel is very much thankful for Trump after 8 years of Obama's bullshit.

That is the one thing that has really stood out for me: the appointments have so far worked and DJT is CEO enough to let his people (powerful and experienced in their own rights) do their thing. I really think it is working.

I am still worried about the swamp, but so far he has far, far exceeded my expectations.

34 The way Haley folded so quickly on the Confederate flag issue had me worried.

But she's done good. Trump picked a winner, and put aside her attacks on him during the campaign to hire her.

35 Yesterday I had a comment section colloquy (using fancy Senate terminology) with JJ about reviewing the collapse of the Anti-Defamation League as a force for anything good. Apparently they were hyping (per my lurker friend) two things they were trying to argue showed bad Trump juju with the joooos.

One, no WH Jewish liason appointed. Two, anti-semitism office at State being mothballed.

First, um, hmmm, gee, ya think Trump desperately needs a "Jewish liason" when his adviser/son in law is tied in to the top levels of the Jewish community, and the PM of Israel is an old personal friend. Absurd.

Second, State office is mandated by congressional fiat, my friend seems to recall. Let the august Congress of these here United States figure that out. Translation: letter from authorizers/appropriators to Tillerson or management under-secretary, question at annual authorization hearings.

Meanwhile, a great example of how the ADL has lost its mind and relevance.

Agreed. A lot of us were rough on PDT for promoting that Obama hire to head the VA. Sounded very risky for several reasons.

But that guy turned out to be the one guy at the VA who knew what he was doing, and he's now singing Trump's praises. Loves his management style and taking digs at Obama now.

To give you a sense of how gobsmacked I've been going on 9 years now, I couldn't believe McCain could ever become a candidate for higher office. Of course I regarded Obama's candidacy as a sad bizarre extreme of Dem lunacy and race-obssession, and expected him to be blown out in the election.

So seeing the nat. security establishment start to resemble that of Argentina has hit a button already broken from over-use.

96 The Confederate flag wasn't about the flag. It was about the insane talibanization of American civic culture, wherein insane hateful ignorant Khmer Rouge teenagers are being allowed to rampage across the land, destroying monuments, and destroying America's unique history of conflict and reconciliation.

Haley's decision actually involved something with its own specific, complicated history - it wasn't that decision per se that was the outrageous dereliction. It was the failure by her, and many others, to identify and denounce the degradation of our civic culture, and the idiocy of that particular rampage, based on some pics from a mentally ill murderer.

But hey if you can't see any hills, or mountains, there's never any terrain to defend.

128 OT, but really really worth a look.

Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review, short article perfectly encapsulating the idiocy of current GOP/"conservative" health insurance moves.

He clearly lays out many key points some of us here make, in vain, about the irrelevance of Medicaid to the larger problem, and the obvious steps to addressing that larger problem.

Many people here seem to need to consider the obvious points he makes. Even here, most discussions of this issue are other-worldly and disconnected from both political and policy reality.

179 96 The Confederate flag wasn't about the flag. It was about the insane talibanization of American civic culture, wherein insane hateful ignorant Khmer Rouge teenagers are being allowed to rampage across the land, destroying monuments, and destroying America's unique history of conflict and reconciliation.

Haley's decision actually involved something with its own specific, complicated history - it wasn't that decision per se that was the outrageous dereliction. It was the failure by her, and many others, to identify and denounce the degradation of our civic culture, and the idiocy of that particular rampage, based on some pics from a mentally ill murderer.

196 People liked to call Nikki Haley Jeb in a dress after she signed the bill that the SC legislature passed to remove the Confederate Flag (don't start) from the SC Statehouse grounds and display in the State museum.

But she was never that. She was ALWAYS a strong conservative. Pro-life, anti-tax, pro 2A, etc. and so on. She was NEVER #nevertrump - people try to hang that label on her, but she just wasn't. She endorsed Rubio before Cruz before Trump. (raise your hand if you did not follow a similar path. You there with the hand up, liar! I was Walker then Cruz then Trump). She was a reluctant Trumper after the Billy Budd (or whatever his name was) tape came out, but was for Trump nonetheless.

Amb. Haley is an Indian American who grew up working in her parents' business. She is a Christian and her husband is in the Air National Guard (or was if he has not retired) and deployed to the ME. She took on the good old boy network in SC and beat it. She appointed Tim Scott (an African American) to the Senate and he is hugely popular in SC. And, moron shallow analysis - for a politician she is easy on the eyes.

I think Amb. Haley has a bright future. Right after Romney fizzled I was pushing Walker-Haley 16. We could do worse, and if history teaches us anything, we probably will.

Yeah, that's about right. I've always preferred to invest money into things like real dates, wining & dining, etc. You know... things that actually can lead to getting laid, instead of merely getting off.

No, it's not prudishness, just honest cheapness.

Same reason I don't haunt the tittie bars. Certainly, eyefuls of lovely young ladies don't offend. That said though, with vanishingly few exceptions, most "investments" thereto have a zero rate of return.

And if the rate of return is "assured", then they're not dancers, but rather, whores.

Back to the porn thing though. Really not much need to pay for it these days, anyway. Not with so very much of it given for free by amateurs on various You Toob channels and other sites.

But yeah, "That Cheap Bastard". I'll stick with that for a porn name. Beats the hell out of the algorithmic output of "Pixy Royal"....!

name is on one of the memorials (one of the Pennsylvania regiments). A

Well, we all kinda accidentally dropped our muskets at the same time and they all went off. Now, after seeing what happened, you'd think that we'd be extra careful to not load actual minie balls, but with all the excitement we just made a mistake. And then we all accidentally dropped them again. And again. Slippery suckers. Anyway, that's what happened. Sorry for the mess.

HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE UPDATE, LEGAL EDUCATION EDITION: Trump And Devos Deliver One-Two Punch On Law School Loans.

"For young lawyers hoping that public service loan forgiveness could be an answer to a lifetime of student debt burdens, President Trump has some bad news. Rather than remedy the problems with a program that can provide enormous help to many recent grads and the organizations for which they work, he wants to eliminate it altogether."

That's a good idea, actually. This is just a subsidy for the left, and one that encourages students to underestimate the damage done by student loan debt. Next, make student loans dischargable in bankruptcy, but with a portion charged back to the institutions that received the money.

Trump EPA to Dump 'WOTUS'; Frees 247 Million Acres of Farmland

WOTUS gave the federal government effective authority over water use on 247 million acres of American farmland.

I was Walker before Perry, but that changed pretty quickly when he couldn't do anything in the debates. Pretty much ended up the same as you, though.

22 Neville 1967 -- In the 60th plate of his poem, 'Jerusalem,' Blake speaks of the tower of Babel. I am sure you are all familiar with the story of how the tower contained multiple voices so that no one understood the other. Today, even though we and those in Romania, Bulgaria, and Czechoslovakia live in what is referred to as democratic countries, we do not mean the same kind of democracy. To us democracy is based upon the principle of compromise, but not the compromise of principle as they do. So the world is Babel and Blake makes this statement: 'Babel mocks saying, there is no God or Son of God. That thou O Human Imagination, O Divine Body, art all a delusion. But I know thee, O Lord.' (Here Blake calls his own human imagination, 'Lord') saying: 'when thou ariseth upon.' In the morning when Imagination ariseth and the eye awakens, you see the familiar objects about as life itself arises. The world is animated by your human imagination. If it did not return in the morning you would be called dead, for life is nothing more than an activity of imagining. So Blake continues, saying: 'when thou ariseth upon my eyes, even in this dungeon, this iron mill.' You see, Blake saw the physical garment as a dungeon, a mill of iron.

48 I always loved that painting as a kid. So clearly unfinished and confused.

Now, looking at it I see all the material staged out for use, and scaffolding in place - Bruegel must have hung around construction sites for his details.

The tradition of "high places" also tickled me when I was told about it, it was apparently once a thing for the various intercessors to climb tall pillars and shout requests into the sky - a form of Nearer, My God to Thee as it were.

119 I love Pieter Bruegel the Elder paintings. The details, the palette with the points of bright colors against earth tones, and often a sense of whimsy. They are instructive and illustrative of the peasant lives. I can see some of his works as father to "Night Watch" and other Rembrandt paintings. If Norman Rockwell did crowd scenes, I suspect they would be similar in nature to Bruegel. It's too bad he couldn't illustrate some Lewis Carroll works.

BTW, I prefer the first Tower painting with its greater detail and the way it shows some of the interior.

Thanks, as always, CBD. Bruegel's works are just plain fun and interesting.

128 Story Time !!!

During the big Stock Market Crash of '08 ... I bought shares of National City Bank. Why ? Because they were still mostly a Deposits Holding institution with very little mortgage holdings. So - immune to the housing bubble.

5/3 used TARP money to buy National City ... and my shares committed seppuku as a result.





I did mine the old fashioned way. I took my very first income tax refund and went to J G Edwards and bought 100 shares of Braniff - The Big Red Bird With The Brass Ass at $2/share.

Watched it slide to .25 cents a share.

At this time, art was used to teach. Dutch painting especially has heavy parable/moral lessons in them, even in the still-lifes. The idea of "art for art's sake" was not worthy of high art. Art had to have a lofty message, a purpose. Even in details like you describe--the open sewer near swimmers--Bruegel may be pointing out the continued folly of Man. The Tower symbolizes human hubris, the sewer our stupidity.

A Morning Devotional from Sainted Nanzi of the Nanny State.

And there were in those days many who were young and identified as male and whose chosen pronouns were he/his/him. (This was in the time just after the Golden Age of the reign of Barackenautus the Great; when all knew The Word was "palomino" and Goodness, Righteousness and Tsunamis of Free Stuff poured out of the Temples of DeeCee and filled all the land with Goodness, Righteousness and Tsunamis of Free Stuff. But I repeat myself.) Some were with penis and some were without, but all were male because Behold! This is the miraculous evolution that We of the State had caused to come to pass. (And Biology and Science had nothing to do with it, as had been revealed to us by the Blessed Lysenko. Really!)

Yea, verily, and among these males was one who wore the footed jammies and wore them proudly. And his name was Yawn Officer. He was fair and comely to gaze upon and some even went so far as to compare him to the Venerable Trust In True Doe, the fair and beloved footed jammies wearer of the Wilds of Kan-A-Duh and yet another to whom The Word had been revealed.

Yawn Officer lived in the unclean, uncouth and uncivilized land called Georgia in a District called "The Sixth", or close enough thereunto, for the Lines that separated the unclean land of Georgia into Districts ran hither and yon without let, hinderance or reason and their true locations confused him mightily. But in his heart of hearts, Yawn Officer knew he was of "The Sixth" and said he this many times over, until the numbers of the times he said it rivaled the numbers of stars seated in the firmament above Gaia.

And Yawn Officer was keeping himself clean, chaste and apart for She Who Would Become Doctor. And he dwelt in her basement in a District in the unclean land of Georgia that may or may not have been called "The Sixth". Irrespective of any of that, Yawn Officer declared his heart and goodness ached for "The Sixth" and besides, he really, really had dwelt therein before and would come to do so again (count on it), as soon as She Who Would Become Doctor got her act together and would truly become Doctor (and thereby cause to come to pass the prophecy, "The footed One shall bestir Himself and come out of the Place called Basement and stride to and fro about the land, bestowing Goodness, Righteousness and Tsunamis of Free Stuff.")

And Lo! one day Yawn Officer felt the call, and (after he dealt with that) he spake and said these words, "Hear me, People of the District called 'The Sixth'! My calling is to fleece... er, I mean... to serve You, all of you, whether you refer to yourself as he, xe, she, xer or whatever strikes your fancy at this time! Feeling thus, I am duty bound to seek the office of your Congressnoun and thereby offer up for You, all I can do to bestow Goodness, Righteousness and Tsunamis of Free Stuff upon this fair District. And so, I run!" But the People paid Yawn Officer no mind and changed the channel with the device called "Remote".

Here endeth this Morning Devotional from Sainted Nanzi of the Nanny State.

148 Liberal theologians would classify this an an "etymological tale". A tale meant to explain some puzzling fact. Why is there a rainbow? The promise to Noah. Why are there different languages? The Tower of Babel. They also speculate there was a strange rock formation that looked like a woman that inspired the story of Lot's wife, and that the story of Samson killing the Philistines with a donkey's jawbone was inspired by a rocky area resembing a donkey's jawbone.

We were coming back from the Virgin Islands years ago, long before 9/11. We were leaving from St. Thomas on a typical smoking hot day, everybody loaded on the plane and then we were told their were mechanical problems.

Sat on the tarmac cooking in that tin can for over 3 hours with no a/c but at least they opened the cabin door which did squat. Nobody was allowed off under threat of being kicked off the flight.

226 United saga reminds me of my daughters school district. earlier this year when she was pretty sick with seizures and tics and what not, she missed school due to hospitalization, UCLA trips to the ped neurologist, etc. School was tolerant of the absences for a while but starting bugging us to send her back to school - she is special ed and they are trained to handles seizures (or so they say) - they could take legal action against parents who deny education to their kids, yadda yadda. So against my better judgement i sent her one day, only for the school to call me at about 10 am to pick her up coz she had an episode and they are not equipped to handle it. i was spitting mad; a sp ed lawyer then told me that it is all about attendance for them, if she is there when they school bell rings her attendance counts and they keep their percentages up and maintain funding. gotta love Cali public school system.

The first time I went to Jamaica was back in the late 80's. Coming home we got delayed and sat on the tarmac, because the horde of retards from Jamaica that boarded decided to sit wherever they felt like it, and a shit ton of other passengers were trying to get into their rightful seats. They flight attendants basically had to reseat most of the plane, and it was big plane with a bunch of seats across. Then the plane realized it didn't have enough meals, so we sat for another period of time on the tarmac...in the sun....in Jamaica...in the sun. yup, lots of sun.

She shut them up in it, went in the house and smoked a joint, and took a two hour nap.

When she went out and discovered them unresponsive in the hot car, she broke a window to make it look like they had locked themselves in.

They already had the example of Pinochet, who almost single-handedly dragged Chile into prosperity and for his efforts was excoriated as a bloodthirsty tyrant......except that he only whacked out less than 4000 people (the vast majority of which were killed in the first year of his rule).

If we're on the plan to get rid of RINOs or whoever, I don't think Ryan's the one to start with.

I'm not a Ryan famboy, but if the Republican party as a whole looked a lot more like the freedom caucus, Id on't think we'd have to worry too much about him selling us out.

Maybe I'm wrong though.

Haley's a rising star in national politics. The smart play is to go even where she's not wanted.

Democrats are a coalition of sometimes competing interests. They rely exclusively on voting blocs. The way to win is to chip away at those blocs and disrupt the coalition.

With a little cunning and guile, a capable politician can split off one of those blocs and make it their own--as Trump did with white working class voters.

(Yeah I know)

One day the instructor - who was the college tennis coach, matched me against a girl on the college tennis team. (She was taking it for an easy A).

I was not a good tennis player. I was taking it to learn how to play.

She would serve. I would return and charge the net. She was unable to pass me. (I used to be extremely agile.) She could only lob me. Her frustration mounted to the point where the instructor walked past me and mumbled, "please back off the net".

I was a college sophomore. Playing tennis for the first time.

Now, I couldn't serve and unforced service errors on my part evened things out considerably.

"I'm trying to think of a real sport (no snark) where women would have innate advantages over men."

Consider what several million years of evolution did on the hunter-gather tribal level to the physical and mental abilities of each of the sexes because women have 9 months of pregnancy and the child must be nursed and cared for for years afterward. These imperatives on the success of the tribe in continuing its existence continued and at times exaggerated the sex differences which exist in most animal species.

Hello all. Thanks so much JJ for the teacher psych evaluation link. Here is AZ a school district I worked at has full time Social Emotional Counselors. Even as teachers who sign a confidentiality agreement about student information, we were unable to find out what was discusses in the groups they ran, even if we had referred a kid for specific issues, usually behavioral.

We did however great plenty of feedback from the kids who attended, telling us he told them that if we spoke harshly to them, or pressured them in any way that it was 'bullying'.

I lost my shit on the liberal, ladyboy cocksucker SE Counselor and was told by admin. To lay off. I should have covfefe'd him right in his yap instead.

I'll be sending the links and other info. I searched to a local conservative radio station who is very conservative education friendly. This is bullshit.

496 define sport
Merriam-Webster
3. to deviate or vary abruptly from type : mutation

Golf is an abrupt variation of baseball or cricket where the player attempts to hit the ball. Then the play chases after the ball, either on foot at a walking pace, or by riding in an electric vehicle. The player then attempts to find the place where the ball has come to rest, and then attempts to hit the ball a second time.

After several hits, the ball might, by random chance, come to rest near a hole in the ground. Now the player attempts to 'stroke' the ball into the hole in the ground. If successful, this is called a 'score.'

Clearly, golf, is a sport.

…The new city was to be named Bablot after the architect and builder of the tower. This location later became known as Bablod and eventually as Babel. …

…After four and one-half years of work a great dispute arose about the object and motive for the erection of the tower. The contentions became so bitter that all work stopped. …

…they fell to fighting. The religionists, the noncombatants, fled to their homes in the south, while their fellows fought until well-nigh obliterated. …

About twelve thousand years ago a second attempt to erect the tower of Babel was made. … but there was not sufficient support for the enterprise; it fell of its own pretentious weight. This region was long known as the land of Babel.

The Morning Report 6/28/17

dick.jpg

Good morning, kids. Midweek and a mixed bag of things today. First up, and as I had suspected all along, the Democrat-inspired terrorist attack that left Rep. Steve Scalise and several others gravely wounded has been nothing-to-see-here-move-along'd way too quickly. The Daily Caller is reporting that there is evidently a chain of communications between the terrorist and the office of Dick Durbin and that office is refusing to let reporters from that outlet have access to them. Considering the fact that the Left has essentially blamed the President and the victims for the act of a lone wolf, it's kind of puzzling (read: alarming) that these communications exist in the first place, let alone the refusal to release them. Couple all this with the FBI's (don't laugh) bizarre press announcement that the attack was spontaneous, random and had no specific target, despite mountains of evidence to the contrary, and the complete politicization of its leadership that is in open revolt against the President and his political allies, and you know something is terribly wrong here. Either I'm insane or there is something being covered up is truly explosive. And let's leave it at that. For now.

In other news, the GOP healthcare bill has been delayed and there are indications that the conservatives are hopefully making headway in adding an actual repeal component to the bill that has been touted as a repeal and replace. We shall see.

Bernie Sanders, the maple syrup commie with the Canarsie accent claims the FBI investigation into his and his wife's real estate swindle is a political witch hunt. Lastly, there is a very disturbing report for my last link. I apologize for linking it and yet I feel compelled. No one is covering it and it's a story that must be told. Because this is the real enemy that we are facing. Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

UPDATE:

First link to Durbin fixed.

A taste: "So in one month Mueller has managed to put five times as many people on the DoJ payroll as Trump has since January.

As has been noticed, no matter how many lawyers Mueller hires, he only seems to know bigtime Hillary donors. If he wraps the investigation up in time, the Special Counsel can change his title to Special Bundler for the Clinton 2020 campaign. But, even if they weren't so ostentatiously partisan, the whole money-no-object profligacy sums up dysfunctional Washington at its most repulsive."

20 A former Navy SEAL and a former Army Ranger are claiming that they both suffered career-ending injuries while searching for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, according to a story by Task and Purpose. Prosecutors are hoping to use their testimonies to convince a jury that Bergdahl both deserted his post and, more importantly, committed misbehavior that endangered his comrades.

In July 2009, Army National Guard Sgt. 1st Class Mark Allen was shot in the head while searching for Bergdahl in the Paktika province. The next day, Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer Jimmy Hatch was shot in the leg on a different search mission. Both men claim they were forced to retire because of the injuries, reports Task and Purpose.

I'd be glad to 'expert witness' for Sarah Palin. The so-called 'target' on the Election map in question is what is referred to in the printing industry as a 'registration mark' - used in high speed printing operations to assure alignment of multiple colors. Some press operators may refer to it as a 'target' but that has nothing to do with weaponry. As the image flies by at hundreds of feet per second the operator picks up a strobe light/strobe 'gun' and directs it at the target.

Anyway, I'm glad she's gonna take some money from the failing New York Times.

64 That linked RCP article on Commie Bernie's crooked wife doesn't say, but didn't this investigation into her school's dubious loan start over a year ago? I seem to remember reading about it last fall, before the election.

So if Obama's FBI was the one who started the investigation, then it's clear she has done nothing wrong and is only being investigated because Trump is a big, bad meanie who is using the FBI to punish his political enemies? (And we all know that the FBI are a bunch of pro-Trump partisans, right?)

Bernie is an idiot, and if his crooked wife (who lied on the loan applications, and also lied to her investors) is the "most honest person" he knows, that tells you a lot about why Bernie is such a loser.

Your observation illustrates the fact that Rush and I think Victor Davis Hanson touched upon. The nation/culture, believe it or not, is at an inflection point, and the so-called cultural/intellectual elite are behind the curve.

The media has been exposed as corrupt and partisan, the Democrat party has the same old messaging/platform and a majority of people aren't buying it and are reacting negatively to it.

It's just that they are behind the curve and just living in their bubble of imagined superiority and former invincibility.

79 Kind of random but it's on my mind - during a long flight yesterday I watched a couple of movies.

One was John Wick: Chapter 2. I hadn't seen the original, but heard/read it was efficient, well-executed, engrossing entertainment. The thing I can't get over for this one was, We need someone killed. Security's going to be insanely tight. Who shall we hire? I know: An apparently world-famous assassin who is recognized on sight literally everywhere in he goes!

The other was Patriots Day. Which was really damned good. After Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon and this, my hat is increasingly off to Peter Berg, even if he was expecting us to be somber and reflective when (spoiler!) the good guys shot a bunch of terrorists in The Kingdom. Oh, and J.K. Simmons is memorably badass as Sergeant Jeff Pugliese of the Watertown Police Department.

This program was only supposed to allow a max of 10K a year. Why are we just hearing about this crime now? And on top of that why did nobody in the public know about this BS law?

Nothing points out the laziness, stupidity and mendacity of the MFM more than the Saint Traytable case.

Once the dumb fucks realized what the deal was they then described him as a white hispanic, a term which I hadn't seen employed ever before or since, exclusively like a herd of retards. And then they print baby Traytable pics like he was some cuddly little smurf instead of a drank swilling thug out to boost every fucking thing he could get from hammering the elderly.

the nicities of the UCMJ:

Article 88 Desertion
(c) Any person found guilty of desertion or attempt to desert shall be punished, if the offense is committed in time of war, by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct, but if the desertion or attempt to desert occurs at any other time, by such punishment, other than death, as a court-martial may direct.

We can't seem to execute him because it was not a declared war?

A summary Court Marital and execution is what Armed Forces have used in the past. However, in this kindler, gentler military, I would be satisfied with complete cooperation with the DIA, followed by a life sentence in Supermax PYITA federal prison.

201 I hate to be the voice of reason, but I think the Hodgkinson/Durbin connection will turn out to be fairly tame.

No, I don't think Durbin's office encourage Hodgkinson to go on a rampage. But I wouldn't doubt that after he sent a few letters to Durbin's office, Durbin's office sent him a form letter in return that called Republicans a host of nasty terms. There were probably several incendiary phrases ("this is the time for action", "we cannot let people die at their hands", "they must be stopped") that in retrospect would make Durbin's office look wildly irresponsible.

Durbin's office & lawyers probably calculate that not giving the press the correspondence will keep the shooting out of the headlines. Releasing those letters won't help them politically, regardless of actual content.

202 Nothing points out the laziness, stupidity and mendacity of the MFM more than the Saint Traytable case. First, when the lazy cocksuckers see Zimmerman they immediately default to joooooo in their desire to pin it on somebody white. Once the dumb fucks realized what the deal was they then described him as a white hispanic, a term which I hadn't seen employed ever before or since, exclusively like a herd of retards. And then they print baby Traytable pics like he was some cuddly little smurf instead of a drank swilling thug out to boost every fucking thing he could get from hammering the elderly.

Fuck those assholes. They're lucky they haven't been locked in their dogshit Newseum and had it burned to the ground.

Posted by: Captain Hate


All the articles I'd read would say, "George Zimmerman, whose father was white, ..."

I've never seen any articles about Obama that said, "Barack Obama, whose mother was white, ..."

It inspired a-holes on twitter to write things like "Gonna kill me a cracka". I think the media really does want to inspire some sort of brainwashed army of killers, otherwise they would have dialed it down by now.

If policemen kill a perp who happens to be black, the media would say, "The police are the keepers of peace", to *prevent* riots, like Bush saying that Islam was peaceful.

204 IIRC, Obama had people in his office, including Kal Penn, whose job it was to partner with the arts to spread his propoganda via the NEA as well as just working directly Hollywood (i.e. no NEA cash needed). I have no doubt that there are still Obama people heading up the NEA who are fully engaged in now using those same partnerships to fund/coordinate the arts/"Resistance" propaganda. Fully weaponized federal government. That is Obama's legacy.

And they typically wait around for another equally mystical Deux Ex Machina to save their sorry asses.

I guess looking in the mirror at both the cause and the cure is just too damn hard for 'em.

218 My first job was at a McDonald's. I was 16. And it was one of the most instructive things I've done. But it does go back to the themes being mentioned here.

Thing is, we all did give a shit. The majority of the crew were like me - teenagers needing gas money. And we did have the attitude that if we screwed up, we'd get fewer hours or even fired, and that would mess up our gas money. So we worked hard. It helped that the owners and managers were customer-service-at-all-times people, but our upbringing was key as well. Simply put, if we were lazy or had any kind of apathetic attitude, we were out the door. Period. And then our parents would kick our asses.

I see McDonald's these days and it sucks. I don't go there any more for various reasons, but it's easy for me to stay away because as a customer I don't like feeling like I'm interrupting the day of the person behind the counter.

It's funny you mention that. The Boston drive-time talk host Howie Carr was talking about Fultz yesterday and noting that he'd been told that, during an interview with the Celtics - who, up until that time, had been hot and horny to sign him - Fultz asked where the nearest CFA was to Boston.

And that once he'd asked that particular non-PC question, the Celtics dropped him like a hot stove.

262 Remember when Dick Durbin said Omar Mateen was just a mixed-up kid and not really a terrorist cos he praised both Sunni and Shia groups? And Everybody Knows Sunni and Shia Don't Collaborate(tm).

Except for, you know, for the Ayatollah letting al Qaeda work out of Iran. But other than that, not much.

Durbin: "That Orlando shooter was babbling. He at one point said he was part of ISIS and at another point said he was part of Hezbollah, without realizing they are two warring factions, I don,t know why [the FBI] opened [an investigation] or why they closed it, but to argue they were somewhat afraid to identify someone who was a threat, I've never heard that bunch of baloney."

By the way, that's when Durbin claimed he was the prime mover in getting the FBI to purge their manuals of any "unhelpful" (i.e. 'helpful') references to Radical Islam. But Durbin is just one of a hundred senators--and none of them get to set policy for the Executive Branch.

Durbin was merely taking the heat by acting as a beard for the Unknown Wolves in the Muslim Brotherhood Executive Branch who wished to remain unknown, unnoticed and unnamed *(Jeh Johnson Valerie Jarrett Barack Obama)*.

Durbin is a self-proclaimed expert on the motivations of terrorist killers with a long history of providing political cover for terrorists--yet he won't share his own personal evidence with us.

Was the assault known of in advance or was the shooter given information on where the victims would be?

Does Durbin play on the dems' baseball team?

There comes to mind two possibilities:

1) Durbin agrees with his rants and says so in the emails.

2) The terrorist said something like "I wouldn't go to the baseball practice if I were you." And Durbin did not report it.

Can you think of another reason why he would hide them if there wasn't something damaging in them?

I have little hope she or anyone else will actually get indicted but the fact that this is no longer an investigation solely focused on the non-existent Trump/Russia connection means that the left will be much less interested in the whole thing lest more of the Obama team get dragged into this mess.

I was being a jazz snob, like a fucking idiot, back when his earliest releases happened so I missed the chance to catch him on the way up. Then I was in some used cd place in the early 90s and saw, amidst a bunch of boring shit, a copy of "Life's Too Short" for a buck fifty and thought "why not". From the first note of "Better Back Off" I was hooked. The whole disc is great; I still bang that fucker on road trips. Needless to say I obsessively snagged everything he did and has done.

Unfortunately for him, the robber barons in the biz never got behind him which works for me because I can still catch him in clubs. He's figured out a way to make a living of sorts doing it without really earning a big payday. I've seen him solo before but playing with the Bottle Rockets and Gin Blossoms didn't crack my gotta see threshold. But Los Straitjackets with their retro surf stuff has me jacked at the possibilities. I know at the DC date they did a killer cover of "Cruel to be Kind" and a really early Dylan dada piece of Captain Ahab. He knows a kajillion songs so the possibilities are huge.

Then you feel a cool breeze waft through the room for a moment, and the curtains flap, and it feels very, very good. Is it the long hoped for break in the nasty weather? Or is it just a tiny undercurrent that will retreat back into the soup of mugginess?

Always a skeptic, but I'm enjoying a few cool breezes right now.

There's nothing specifically 'ethnic' about the hood. But these people give themselves these names out of narcissism of having African ancestry. And being african is a distnct ethnicity, unless you deny the existence of africans.

I was just wondering if these names derived from actual African names.

348 Here's the scam:

Sander's liberal friends, students and professors made fake "pledges" to Burlington College, which the college never seeks to collect.

However, Burlington College documents those pledges as receivables/accruals that can serve as collateral.

The bank relies on the collateral statement and grants the loans.

The loans are then churned back to the liberal professors, employees and student organizations who made the phony pledges.

Mrs. Sanders distributes those monies with the understanding that a certain amount of that money will be kicked back to support Bernie Sanders' campaign.

Easy peasy.

Everyone is none the wiser.

Until someone drops a dime.

Funny how Bernie had to attack the complainant rather than dispute the complaint?

I think I've owned all the models of iPods so far. And these days between my iPod, iPhone and my personal laptop computer, I'm someone who is very, very grateful for all the ways to listen to music and completely switch off from people around me and listen to the music in detail, which is very hard to do if you're in a room with other people.

Black Rappers calling other Black men N***** is ok. Calling women Whores or Sluts is fine. Sing about the wanton destruction of human life and private property those are acceptable behaviors. But as an artist, don't you dare call for orderly and legal immigration.

In a Facebook statement yesterday, Castle Face Records criticized comments that musician couple Doris and Matthew Melton made during an interview with the French publication Still in Rock. While the California-based record label can’t pull the album it released in May, it vowed to donate profits from sales to charity.

“We’re horrified and ashamed by this, and we appreciate people being upset but respectful in letting us know how they felt about it,” the record label posted on Facebook.

Here's hoping this band goes on to making bigger and better albums and laughing all the way to the bank.

The ONT chuckles, We told you so!!

According to a new paper from the National Bureau of Economic Research:

Using a variety of methods to analyze employment in all sectors paying below a specified real hourly rate, we conclude that the second wage increase to $13 reduced hours worked in low-wage jobs by around 9 percent, while hourly wages in such jobs increased by around 3 percent. Consequently, total payroll fell for such jobs, implying that the minimum wage ordinance lowered low-wage employees’ earnings by an average of $125 per month in 2016. Evidence attributes more modest effects to the first wage increase. We estimate an effect of zero when analyzing employment in the restaurant industry at all wage levels, comparable to many prior studies.

It was in Missouri -- if she wasn't a teacher, it would be fine. Age of consent is 17. The crime is the teacher-student relationship.

These ages of consent vary, with special "Romeo and Juliet" exceptions. I think in Missouri, it's 14, provided the other party is under 21. That's not criminal. But if the other party is 21+, the minimum is 17.

In some cases, you get ridiculous things where the sex is legal, but taking pictures of it is not.

On Tuesday, 8,500 African migrants are reaching Italian shores aboard 14 different ships, adding to the 5,000 who arrived on Monday. The massive arrivals have led local media as well as politicians to speak of an authentic immigrant “invasion” exceeding the country’s capacity of assimilation.

Officials reported on June 15 that more than 65,000 migrants had arrived since the beginning of the year, but that was prior to the latest influx. Figures for the year now stand at 73,380 migrants into Italy, or a rise of 14.42 percent over the same period in 2016, when then-record arrivals had reached 64,133.

166 Addition is a "sorta" disease. It's a disease in that BEING an addict isn't something you should be ashamed of. It's not a disease in that you are responsible for your actions. It's a disease in that you must have help and others should help you. It isn't a disease in that others can't fix things by acting on you: you have to act on yourself. The problem is that our notion of "disease" is basically something that can primarily be fixed by someone else acting on your body, and this is not true of addiction, but our notion of moral responsibility imagines an essentially unlimited scope of free will over purely cognitive (as opposed to emotive) events, and this is not true under compulsion.

The notion of "compulsive behavior" is one that many systems of ethics break down on. Best not to adopt simple psychologies. Biology is complicated. Minds are even more complicated.

Oh, another one I almost forgot. Senior year of high school. Another smoking hottie teacher joined the faculty. I remember her name, but won't say it. She would walk by the gym, during lunch, and all the boys would hoop and holler.

She made out like she was appalled and the principal told us, uh them to stop it now, boys, or I'm gonna get mad, but damn, if she didn't keep walking by.

And a couple of coaches (and boy, I hated those guys -- parodies of "dumb jock", they were) would try to put moves on her. The head football would visibly suck in his gut, and tense his muscles and strut. Peacocking.

Another one of those coaches taught a "science" class, hell, 9th grade something I think. That was when I began to realize things about teachers. They weren't necessarily so smart.

He did some demonstration of H2 and O2, making a little "pop" -- he was just reading from a book, basically.

In most disease, we don't hold people responsible for the progression of the disease itself (ie if someone gets cancer, we on't say "You did something wrong, so it went to your liver".) But in addiction, people are held responsible for the progression of the disease (ie worsening behavior). So in that way, we don't see it so much as a disease. But everybody who looks at an addict sees a person who needs help, and feels we should help them, which is how we DO look at disease.

It just doesn't fit neatly into intuitions about "disease". In a philosophical way, addicts were far better served by ideas of demonic possession, frankly: the psychology was better, even if the science (and therapy) sucked.

217 But everybody who looks at an addict sees a person who needs help, and feels we should help them, which is how we DO look at disease.

I don't generally feel that way. Addicts made their choice long before (excepting, of course, those who got addicted out of no fault of their own) and that is where the responsibility ultimately lies. That their addiction gets worse is no excuse. THey still hold full responsibility.

It just doesn't fit neatly into intuitions about "disease". In a philosophical way, addicts were far better served by ideas of demonic possession, frankly: the psychology was better, even if the science (and therapy) sucked.

Most of the bullshit, these days, in trying to to label all personality problems and mental issues "diseases" (which is mostly done just to release a vast array of criminals from any criminal liability) is a seriously twisted pursuit. People who are evil and fucked up are not merely "suffering" from some mental "disease". THey are fucked up people who, ordinarily, would have been taken out of the evolutionary competition.

The courts have made a mockery of the concept of human consciousness and free will. Basically, the courts don't even believe that either of those two things exist, and it has been the clear goal of all associated with the courts (on the left) to eventually declare that no one is responsible for anything ... because there is no such thing as free will. This is going badly now and will end very, very badly - as well it should.

Addicts and all the other sorts of fucked up head cases and evil shits have to be held responsible for ALL their actions. This doesn't mean that one has to make any moral judgments about them but they need to be held legally responsible for everything they do, whether they felt "compelled" to do it, whether they were blacked-out in one fo their usual fucked up states while they did it, whether they had any "knowledge" that what they were doing was bad or wrong. None of those particulars really matter when it comes down to one person's actions causing consequences for others. But the lefties currently trying to make a disaster of the law are trying to assign moral judgments, surreptitiously, in place of legal judgments and then trying to have them all rendered moot because they don't believe in free will, to start with.

It's intensely infuriating to watch all this stuff go on ... and the idea that the poor, widdle addicts are victims of their own minds the same way that others become victims of their later actions is an insidious concept that needs to killed sometime soon.

From my observations, addiction and mental illness are often intermingled. My late wife was not only addictive, but also suffered from mental illness for the last 30 years of her life. She would sometimes end up in mental wards for a few weeks or as much as a couple of months, and one of the common denominators among the patients was that the were virtually ALL addicted to cigarettes. Hospitals with no smoking rules had to provide a smoking place, at least up until a dozen or so years ago. It's part of the package that the mentally ill have substance addictions. It is explained as attempted self-medication, but I don't know. Anyway, it is like a syndrome.

227 I wish I never had to learn as much about mental illness as I have in the past 4 years, but I've come to the conclusion that all addiction is a symptom of untreated mental illness. And most mental illness can be avoided through intact, loving families.

People who had healthy childhoods rarely become addicts. It won't inoculate 100% percent of the cases, but damn close.

It's what some of our post-WWII special forces were really specifically created for (Green Berets).

Anyway, we've had special forces in hot situations, or warm situations, battling whatever the local flavor of AQ is, since 9/11, mostly in Africa and Indian Ocean littoral countries. To great effect. Not that seems to matter to people, much.

270 256 It has taken me a long time to realize that many many people have some level of chronic anxiety, and those who do generally have some form of OCD and/or addiction.
Posted by: Ladylibertarian at June 27, 2017 11:39 PM (TdMsT)

I heard someone once explain OCD as "You have to do these things in order for things to be all right." You know it on a visceral level that is not really coming from the reason side of the spectrum.

This does not combine well with any habit that affects mood or your chemical balance in general. You not only have the chemical dependence, but also the OCD telling you that "This is the way things have to be or you are not right."

I learned very quickly not to start drinking even lightly on a regular basis after getting myself hooked on nicotine. If I made it a habit, it started tasting too good. So when I drink it is only occasionally (for me, it does not matter how much I drink, but rather how regularly.)

I can handle constantly wondering if I locked the front door (even after checking it after locking it while standing there.) I can even handle nicotine (thank God for vaping.) However, alcohol is about the hardest drug I ever wanted to get involved with.

274 So actually I would fully expect a Dutch tourist in Spain to be fluent in English. Problem appears to be with the guide's English, and with the Dutch victim/jumper's state of mind and focus, probably.

Well the point being, the person responsible for securing the cord - and issuing verbal commands - didn't speak English, at least not well. He should have been speaking Spanish, or Dutch. Oops. And not securing the bungee cord first, before attachment to the jumper, seems dumb as hell.

281 Gorsuch may well be as hoped for/advertized, but the fact that this is so important, and the reaction of many authoritarians ("liberals"), confirms the war is lost, for now.

That is, the war to regain/retain a constitutional system based on law, where the constitution and actual law are the guide. Instead, as now, those things aren't so important - it's just about personnel.

So yeah, I'm stoked with the possibility that some actual judges who understand their role and have some integrity and intelligence might make up a majority of SCOTUS within 3 years (and will be placed in the many open spots lower down). Might even concretely improve life during my lifetime.

But, with rule of law out the window (and it is, wherever one side deems it convenient), we're at the mercy of elections, and the (sub-pathetic) political class, esp. the GOP variety.

Another one of those coaches taught a "science" class, hell, 9th grade something I think. That was when I began to realize things about teachers. They weren't necessarily so smart.

He did some demonstration of H2 and O2, making a little "pop" -- he was just reading from a book, basically.

Then he commented that was the principle on which the "hydrogen bomb" was based. That's when I realized, "Gosh, that man's supposed to be a teacher, and he's dumb as a box of rocks!" Gee, Wally.

I came to the realization that there is a good number of public school teachers that never should have been allowed to teach when I first got to high school. My Spanish teacher was the biggest fucking flake ever. She would have meltdowns in the classroom when she wasn't having the whole class run errands for student government (she was the advisor) the whole class period. We learned absolutely nothing for an entire year. Then when we took Spanish II the next year, the teacher retired at the end of the first day of school. She got her "years" in, so she retired immediately by using all of her unused vacation. It took the school district 6 weeks to find a replacement.

And what a replacement. 23 years old, about 5' tall, and had a body that was quite bangable. We all thought long and hard about making that move, but her husband was a cop in town and we didn't want to risk that shit. So no one did anything. Or so we thought.

25th class reunion, we found out that a guy in our class, the most unlikely to hit it, hit it. She served as a chaperone for some of the girls in the class for the post graduation beach week. A couple of the girls walked into the condo they rented one night and the guy was just plowing her. Turns out he had been banging her the whole year, and he didn't have anything to worry about because she and her husband had "an arrangement".

Lucky mother fucker.

I have a fairly robust resume' subset, encompassing public speaking up to about the 8,000 audience level.

Corporate stuff, with some topics bordering onto the management guru acreage. All, with very high marks, reviews, and yes, fees.

Point is, the "groupie" effect is true, even in the suit n' tie, Fortune 1000 world of corporate attendees.

I avoided entanglements therefrom, as I was still an honorably wed man back then in the mid '90s.

Illegal voters. Most are legal residents - green card holders. They should immediately have their green cards revoked and be shipped out, post haste. But we don't so that sort of reasonable stuff.

Shit, Roger Calero was a green card holder who actually got himself on the Presidential ballots in a handful of states in 2004 and 2008 .. and not only didn't he get deported but some treasonous POS gave the guy citizenship (which should still be revoked and he and his family shipped the fuck out).

327 And the ball-spiking by so many people about the ludicrous SCOTUS action on the EO sort of confirms the war is lost, as even the "good guys" are fine with a court wildly, insanely outside its bounds, usurping executive and legislative power.

An EO that was obviously, unquestionably fully within the lawful authority of the executive - a pause meant to last 90 days for a review to be made of extraordinary security challenges in vetting applicants from select failed states with large jihadist sectors - is delayed for 120 days.

Based on campaign statements. And absurd, slanderous ravings of a few district judges. Giving people and entities with no possible standing, standing.

Then, in its majesty, SCOTUS assumes both legislative and executive power, and tweaks the EO to its own liking - all without any basis, apart from solicitude towards all the parties without standing. And agrees to review the whole lawless mess in 4 months' time.

338 Seems likely Trump will stick to his list, as he said he would. Don't see why he wouldn't. (I forget who is next on the list)

Again - I'm just thrilled to death that, in a post-constitutional system where the courts are just unaccountable unelected super-legislatures with some attributes of Third World revolutionary juntas, there's a good chance the appointments to this uber-Leviathan may be like Gorsuch.

But it's not academic to point out that the importance of these appointments only underlines how rule of law is kaputgemacht, gone, finito, and we are at the mercy of the electorate (barf) and a political class of such minute stature that that Brezhnev would have been embarrassed to have them as his lackeys in the Supreme Soviet of his day.

You can look up her up, Mia Khalifa. Wiki has an article on her. She's Lebanese-American, and actually a Lebanese Christian. They moved to America, Texas, when she was a little girl.

She was working at a "Whataburger", when someone spotted her and said "you outta be in porn".
She had the look, so the schtick was to have her "perform" in a hijab.

That set Lebanon and the Muzzies into a rage.

Thanks, but as I said before, this is not really a "problem===> solution" situation.

That gets into the "check pockets for both sets of keys, e-cig, wallet. Check the wallet for debit card. Check again because it might have fallen out when you last checked it. (Literally, I just checked my wallet- I had a checkbook stolen in '93 which started that whole deal.) Did I leave the stove on? I know I checked the light on the stove before I left. Was it on? I think it was off. I am pretty sure I turned it off after I finished cooking last night. Or did I just turn it down to low? Low could start a fire. I think..."

It comes and goes for me. It is not like that all the time, just every now and then. Worse when I am under stress. For some people it is one whole hell of a lot worse.

346 I would call addiction a disorder rather than a disease.
Diseases may be fully cured but addiction is a permanent condition you have to cope with.
Diseases may also kill or disable you, regardless of what you do. Addiction won't do that--- if you lay off the stuff. So you do have control, even though the disorder makes it hard to exercise.

If only I had the time and the practice budget.

Here's the thing. There are more shooting disciplines than there are the time and sufficient practice rounds to master them all.

By time I got to where I could dominate the PPC course of fire, it was obsolete.

I can shoot the hell out of an Appleseed course of fire. But would not even rate entry to a Camp Perry rifle match.

Now then, I am too old, too heavy, too injured and too slow to "master" IDPA, Bianchi or "ISPIC" (sic?) courses of fire.

But I can still, with the S&W Highway Patrolman, put six into the 10 ring, at 7 yards, from the low-ready, in about 1.2~1.3 seconds.

Or shoot 100 yd. cloverleafs, with an Accuracy International in.308, five shot groups, with a good Vortex PST 4x16x40 MOA scope.

I can SHOOT.

But others, can *shoot*, so very, very much BETTER than me.

I can defend my "rifleman's quarter mile" from wherever I choose to post-up.

But the State of the Art, has far exceeded my training and skillset.

I'm not angry about that.

But I do take it into account, and duck below the sandbags, accordingly.

Well, the CIA refuses to release OBL's porn stash. It's a national security operational secret, they say. And further, even if it's not, they are barred by law, they say, from distributing obscene material, so they couldn't even if they wanted to. They say.

Posted by: publius, the Persistent Poperin Pear at June 28, 2017 12:53 AM (8O3HH)

364 Often people fail to make the distinction between physical addiction and psychological addiction. While physical addiction has worse symptoms, psychological addiction is much, much harder to break.

My wife had an experience which highlighted the difference between physical and psychological addiction. Some years back, she had major back surgery (rebuilt her spine and inserted a rod) After the surgery, she was given percodan (iirc) 3 or 4 times a day for at least 30 days. (her spine had just been taken apart and put back together like some erector set, it was justified)

When it came time to wean her off the percodan, it had been long enough that she had to go through the whole physical withdrawal thing - bad sweats, feeling strange things, all the classic symptoms - but it wasn't really that big a deal, since there had never been any psychological addiction; it was more like having a really strange case of the flu for 3 days. And since she hadn't been addicted before the surgery, once she got through the withdrawal symptoms there was never any urge to go back and start eating those pills again.

Psychological addictions often lead to physical addictions, but physical addictions that come about due to medical circumstances rarely lead to psychological addictions; WITH THE GREAT EXCEPTION of people who suffer long term chronic pain from cumulative injuries, ex-sports players being the best example.

%$&#@%$!!!

You do realize, I assume, that the group the received the grant, the San Francisco Mime Troupe, is a Maoist cult, right? And that they've been dedicated to overthrowing the United Stated for 40 years, right?

The worst part is learning that Trump STILL hasn't booted out the communists that Obama appointed to run this nation. From the original link:

"The San Francisco Mime Troupe, a self-described socialist theater group, received the funding in the first round of grants awarded under the Trump administration. Jane Chu is the current chairman of the NEA, who was appointed by former president Barack Obama in 2014."

TRUMP YOU LAZY MOTHERF*CKER! Fire all the goddamn communist revolutionary traitors that Obama installed! WHAT IS THE FREAKIN' HOLD-UP??!?!?

I guess drinking covfefe and smoking a bowl at the same time kind of cancels each other out, but I'm gonna do it anyway.

We actually had this happen around here, with a smallish 'chain' (five branches, I think) of seafood restaurants.

402 redc1c4, I still remember when I first discovered carne asada tacos. It was at a hole-in-the-wall place in Downey, right across the street from my first full-time job at GTE (now Verizon).

They were spicy and delicious, and I never regretted going there... even years later, after I found out the place was closed down and taken out of business by the Health Department for being infested with vermin. :-P

As for drivers' ed, we had these little Opel Kadetts on which we learned to drive. The best thing was they were stick, forcing all the kids in school to learn to drive a stick. I still enjoy driving a stick. I remember reading a while back, when Jersey City was having a car-jacking crime wave, having a stick was auto theft prevention as the little thieves couldn't drive a stick.

They served tacos until the rising water lapped at their front door. God wept when they closed down the grill for the last time, and the waves claimed the ultimate tacos forever.

I just got one of those mailings with the enclosed membership card offering all sorts of bennies/discounts on stuff, for the low low price of $16 a year.

However they are also a rather aggressive lobbying group and I dunno that I want to endorse or support all their causes. What say you?

Speaking for myself, I have never joined AARP. After the bullshit they pulled back in 2009 with the healthcare 'debate', I refuse to give them a dime.

That said, most of my family like AARP. They enjoy the discounts and the like.

But I will never join them. Ever. They are another lefty organization claiming to 'look out for the little people'. Yet when the little people pushed back against their bullshit (look up AARP 'having public meetings with their customers' videos on YouBoob), they lied like a prayer rug.
