This will be good preparation for what they can expect from Canadian healthcare once they get there.
My apologies to our Canadian friends, but better you suffer these fools than we do. Did you really think there would be no revenge for Celine Dion?
And a fond farewell to Bryan Cranston, Amy Schumer, Cher and Barbra Streisand. Even Mike Holmes can’t make you right.
I guess I should also add that I find it completely unsurprising that all of these celebrities threaten to head to lily white Canada rather than Mexico. This was their chance to prove their commitment to diversity. Truly, they are deeply principled people. I guess it is OK for them to want to live in a culture they are familiar with, just so long as the rest of us peasants accept whatever culture is imposed on us.
And I found this quote particularly funny.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg joked in an interview with The New York Times in July that it’d be time to move to New Zealand if Trump were to win.“Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand,” she said quoting her husband who died in 2010. “I can’t imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president. For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.”
I love the complete lack of self-awareness that Ruthie has. She spent her whole life trying to turn us into Europe and when given the choice of where to go she picks New Zealand, which is a popular destination amongst libertarians who want to get the hell away from the tyrannies that she played so pivotal a role in afflicting us with here in the US. Besides, New Zealand doesn’t even come close to being as far south as she is going to end up.
To trigger your enemies,
See them driven from their safe spaces,
And hear the lamentations of their transwomen.
There will be a lot of good reading this week as the clueless elite try to craft a narrative that doesn’t make them look like idiots. I predict they will do this by insulting the common man.
More importantly though, if Trump hangs on and wins we will now get to see if the Republicans have any principles left. They will control all three branches of government and they had damned well better move us back to a more restrained, constitutionally compliant form of government or there will be absolute hell to pay.
I think no matter who the president is we are sitting on a time bomb with our debt and economy. We practice Keynesianism, but given the size of our national debt we can’t afford to raise interest rates to prepare for the next downcycle. You want to raise the interest rate around 5% when the economy is not in recession so you can goose it by lowering rates when things slow down again. That is the theory. But in practice you just throw good money after bad as it gets harder and harder to artificially inflate each successive bubble. A 5% interest rate increase would increase the federal budget by around another trillion dollars in debt service. That would sink the economy all by itself if you tried to pay for it. And if you don’t pay for it then hello Venezuela!
The window for turning this thing around is closing. We are not guaranteed any more opportunities. We need our ruling class to man up, and we need the GOPe to start acting like adults rather than just being concerned with keeping their seats while accomplishing nothing more than admiring the scenery as we go over the cliff.
As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out sensitive government e-mails and documents — including ones containing classified information — from her house in Washington, DC, e-mails and FBI memos show.
If this doesn’t sink her run for president then nothing will. I guess we will have to wait for verification, but this was supposedly taken from e-mails that Huma and Hillary sent.
Harvard recently cancelled the remaining games on the men’s soccer schedule due to the fact that members of the team were creating lewd “scouting reports” of players on the women’s soccer team. The reports are said to have assigned a number to each female player rating their looks and listed the position they played on the field as well as positions the male players would like to see them assume in the bedroom.
Cancelling the season denied the Harvard team, which was 10-3-2, a chance to go the league championship game and the NCAA tournament.
This is of course silly and sophomoric — on the part of the administration. The ratings were sophomoric too, but they were, after all, produced by sophomores. Supposedly there was an investigation and disciplinary action was taken because the university wants to stamp out
heterosexuality misogyny, but it is impossible to imagine that the male players have a better opinion of women now than they did before they were punished for perfectly normal and healthy male behavior. They sure as hell weren’t spending all of that time fantasizing about women because they hate the opposite sex. The entire point of the exercise was that they love women, and want to love them even more.
And of course we get the standard tripe about how men viewing women with desire reduces women to nothing more than sex objects — as if the male gaze can transmute an independent and powerful woman into a squishy, sobbing mass of unchecked emotion and running mascara. It never occurs to them that if a lewd joke is all it takes to unman (yeah, I said it) a particular woman then she never had a claim to being anything other than weak. I am pretty sure the dictionary does not define “strong” as weeping when someone imagines you naked.
And of course it is quite possible to think of women sexually and to simultaneously admire other qualities they have. But there is certainly no innate human drive to write poems, or songs, or limericks about someone’s intellect. And for women’s part I have yet to hear reports of one yelling, “do me with that big brain of yours” in bed. I know we aren’t supposed to admit that men can walk and chew gum at the same time, but we are quite capable of both desiring women and admiring women. The two are not mutually exclusive and the fact that some women pretend they are is not something that is in the interests of anyone to encourage. But if you punish the desire you sure as hell are going to get less of the admiration. You will only breed resentment, and I am sure the young men on the soccer team will not forget what was done to them. When Osama bin Laden attacked the Twin Towers he said it was to teach the west about Islam. And the west learned. Harvard has taught these young men about feminism and they have learned.
The statement issued by the women’s team to justify ruining the male soccer player’s season was the typical self-justifying claptrap about how they suffer so much — because men just don’t say exactly what they want them to say, when they want them to say it and it hurts their feelings. This really is precious.
In all, we do not pity ourselves, nor do we ache most because of the personal nature of this attack.
There was of course no attack other than in their fevered, Shades of Grey imaginations. And they sure as hell do pity themselves as you see from:
More than anything, we are frustrated that this is a reality that all women have faced in the past and will continue to face throughout their lives.
Yes, how will they soldier on knowing that the male of the species wants to do what males of every species are born to do. How ghastly that they must be burdened with the knowledge that men desire them. If only there were some safe space to which they could retreat — like say, a nunnery, or a women’s studies program, or perhaps an insane asylum — but then I repeat myself.
We feel hopeless because men who are supposed to be our brothers degrade us like this.
And yet if the roles were reversed the men would love it because it shows that they are wanted. But hey, who the hell wants equality when there is power in being a victim. Tell us some more about how powerful you are.
We are appalled that female athletes who are told to feel empowered and proud of their abilities are so regularly reduced to a physical appearance.
My ass! The only thing that would appall them more is if they were never objectified, and justifiably so. What they really want is for the men they like to objectify the hell out of them, and for the ones they find icky to never have a sexual thought ever, much less share those thoughts. Because, just ick!
We are distraught that mothers having daughters almost a half century after getting equal rights have to worry about men’s entitlement to bodies that aren’t theirs.
No one knows what the hell this means. Does anyone out there know what this means? I bet they don’t even know what the hell it means. What entitlement? Who did anything to their bodies? Do they mean that people talk about how they look and women think they should get a veto over that? Do they think they get to decide what others fantasize about? Do they think that just tossing out the word “entitlement” as if it is some sort of religious cant makes a coherent argument? Because it doesn’t. It doesn’t have some magical argument winning property totally divorced from the circumstances in which it is applied. I am sorry, I don’t care what your professor told you. If I say, “Woah, Adelle has a helluva set of lungs on her,” do they think that I somehow entitled myself to her voice? WTF? I mean, would any sane person talk this way short of the food pellet and electroshock therapy that is forced on them by our institutions of higher indoctrination?
We are concerned for the future, because we know that the only way we can truly move past this culture is for the very men who perpetrate it to stop it in its tracks.
Only you can stop forest fires — in your pants! Seriously, how do people this dimwitted get into college? Are ALL of them incapable of thinking for themselves? Because this sounds like a template that is just spewed out on command without anyone ever having given it any thought at all.
The whole point is supposedly that women want to be treated as equals and to be thought of as being as strong as men. But at the same time they don’t want anyone to talk about them. And if someone does then they go crying that their feelings are hurt to an administration that we are told is part of the all pervasive patriarchy (which runs every damned thing in the country to the point that women can’t even get a breath, let alone catch a break) and they demand that others be punished for hurting their feelings! In the name of the Holy God of Equality I ask when have men EVER had this sort of privilege? When in the history of the world did men ever run around complaining to the authorities that women were being mean to them by talking about how they wanted to bang the shit out of them? Here is a pro tip. If you want to be treated like a man then you can’t cry when you are treated like a man.
No, this sort of privilege is left over from when women were treated as the fairer sex and were supposed to be protected even to the point of men losing their lives in an attack or natural disaster. Their virtue was considered sacred, and it was the most scandalous of behavior to cast aspersions at it. Women are clinging to this privilege, while at the same time wanting whatever they perceive to be the male advantages. If they really wanted equality they would have told the guys to toss off and not given it another moment’s thought instead of being mortified that sex exists and men think about it.
I’ve got news for you ladies. It is impossible to stop this behavior. It is a biological imperative, and one that would end the human race were you to ever stamp it out. If you really want men who are indifferent to your bodies, and that are incapable of fantasizing then you need to get a vibrator and a carton full of kittens and start trundling around in abandoned knitting mills because that is the endgame for you. This shit is never going to stop because it is what men enjoy doing and you have no right to deny them that pleasure. And that is all men. Even your little beta-male liars who follow you around wanting a crumb of attention are thinking about what they would really like to do to you in bed. And there is not a damned thing wrong with that. You can’t make natural human attraction and desire into some sort of dysfunction just because you get a kick out of it. It doesn’t work that way. And you should be fucking ashamed of yourself if you support what Harvard did here.
And notice how ungrateful these women are. Their sport would not even exist were it not for money being taken by force from the revenue generating male sports like football and basketball. Not only that, due to the tyranny of Title IX, many men’s sports programs had to be dropped entirely just so we could artificially match the number of men and women participating in sports when the demand and interest is not at all equal. My old school got a women’s rowing team, not because there was a demand for it, but because it helped balance out the number of men who were on the football team. Even so the hockey and wrestling teams still had to be disbanded. And members of the crew team will tell you they only took it up for the scholarship money, not because they love it. It is absolute madness. But that is why we for the most part keep our crazy people confined to college campuses (our current president excepted) . It is like the Zombie apocalypse. Once this stuff goes viral and gets beyond the ivy covered containment walls no society survives it.
OK, I was just going to write a sentence or two and give out the link, but as usual I couldn’t shut up because really, how can you not get worked up about these guys having what they worked so hard for taken from them over absolutely nothing? It is now officially Harvard’s position that anyone who has sexy thoughts about their women’s soccer players and dares to express them needs to be punished. That sounds more like a fatwa from an Ayatollah than it does a policy by a college in the western world.
Kim Dotcom is a young hacker and criminal who ran one of the more successful torrent sites before it was shut down. He is now claiming that the FBI has Hillary’s deleted e-mails and that Obama has been informed.
FBI now has deleted Clinton emails.
FBI has just informed Obama.
To the media:
Ask the White House for comment.

I find it extremely likely that someone has Hillary’s e-mails given the fact that she considered cyber-security to consist of little more than putting a better lock on the bathroom door. It has been confirmed that there were several attacks on her server, and given the level of security involved anyone who wanted her e-mails could have gotten them. Heck, many of them ended up splashed all over a known sex perverts hard drive just by happenstance. What are the chances that a skilled and determined hacker could not have gotten them?
If this report is true then it will be interesting to see how the FBI got them and from which of many possible sources. There are some other interesting things on Kim’s Twitter feed including allegations that the New Zealand Prime Minister gave money to the Clinton Crime Syndicate so check it out for yourself.
It is hard for me to comprehend the level of arrogance it would take for someone to run for president when they have as much to hide as Hillary does. Tribute must be a helluva drug.
Hillary Clinton, a notorious, high priced Washington call girl who sells government access for cash, had a medical episode today where she had to leave a 9/11 memorial event due to overheating.
Here is a video of her being helped into a van. She appears to be near collapse.

There is some speculation on Twitter as to whether she will drop out of the race but I think there is little chance of that happening short of her being interred and embalmed.
I don’t see her giving up the pursuit of power. It is what she has yearned for her entire life — the ability to compel others to take seriously a woman who is bereft of any intellectual gifts, and who cannot compete on any basis other than selling favors. She gave up her dignity in supporting Bill, she gave up her conscience and ethics for money. She gave up having any sort of love in her life which does not revolve around the pursuit of power. What would she have left if she dropped out of the race?
It is an interesting election though when both parties would increase their chances of winning if their nominee were to drop out. It may not be entirely pleasant living through the collapse of a country, but it is certainly interesting.
And given that temperature yesterday morning in New York were in the low 80’s I think it is fair to say that if Hillary overheated she is either exhausted or is in poor health due to some other medical condition.
Well, at least according to Fox News.
Recovered near Northern Israel, it is thought that the clay device would be filled with a flammable liquid such as alcohol and once a burning fuse was inserted would then be thrown at enemy ships. These were used fairly commonly around the 11th century or so in Syria and elsewhere.
It sounds more like a Molotov Cocktail than an actual hand grenade.
Almost 50 years ago to the day on August 23rd, 1966 NASA used five lunar orbiters to takes pictures of the moon in order to find proper landing sites for the upcoming manned missions. In the background of some of those pictures we can see our own world in what were the first pictures of the earth taken from another celestial body.
Given the technology of the time the quality of the printouts were not very good.
But the pictures themselves were actually of much higher resolution as can be seen below the fold.
Matt Roberts passed away yesterday at the age of 38. As you can likely guess the cause was reported as an overdose.
According to his father, Roberts had suffered from anxiety most of his life which lead him to seek medication.
I know he had prescription drug addiction. He suffered greatly from anxiety. It’s crazy as a performer; he never liked crowds or liked places he didn’t know about as a baby, as a child, and this was his way of dealing with it and me and him talked about it often,” Roberts said.
3 Doors Down came along about the time I was building my small business and was disconnected from the music scene a bit. I really liked the fact that they were a Southern band whose singer didn’t try to hide his accent and had an authentic sound.
I have suffered from some of the same anxieties as Roberts did so I know how powerful they can be. It played a large role in which career I picked. In this and other ways, panic attacks and anxiety can determine the entire structure of a person’s life, and if you are prone to them they can make your life a living hell. You will think this is an odd thing to say, but Matt Roberts had to be a very brave man to face his demons down to the point where he could travel and perform as much as he did. He ultimately lost his battle, but left us with a legacy we can all enjoy. I hope he has found the peace that eluded him in life.
This is one thing I hate about how it is no longer possible to make a living selling music because it is all pirated, or free in one form or another. The rates artists get from streaming are so low as to be nonexistent, so you are left with only the lowest common denominator acts, or those which can tour non-stop being the successful ones. It has always been that way to some extent, but it is worse now. There are a lot of great musicians, artists and songwriters out there who just aren’t cut out to be live performers. I have known some of them, and the world has really missed out on hearing what they have to offer. If you find music you like then buy the CD or pay to download the album — especially if it is by a small act or one which doesn’t tour. Think of yourself as a patron of the arts on a very small scale. You get more of what you pay for so you sculpt the musical landscape and the culture with your purchase.
Like I say, I don’t know much about Roberts, but he died while on a trip to give a benefit concert for Stars and Stripes Honor Flight which provides transport for veterans to visit the monuments that have been erected in their honor. You can make a donation here.
“He just never did do crowds and always was nervous around public settings, but I’ll tell you he loved our military,” the father says.
