Passing the Hat
I don’t think they understand the scope and scale of the wildfire they are flirting with.
They are fucking around with a civil war that could last a decade and cause millions of deaths… and the sad truth is that 95% of the problems we have in this country could be solved tomorrow, by noon… simply by dragging 100 people out in the street and shooting them in the fucking head.” The Pig Trap « Taxicab Depressions
some conservatives continue to adhere to the myth that they can buy their way out of the race- and gender-card slurs. In this, the “year of the scary clown,” here we find the scariest clowns of all. The people who truly believe that leftists will cut them slack for abandoning Trump represent a rare combination of stupidity and reality detachment. They are indeed rats, and, may I add, rats that absolutely deserve to drown. - - Taki's Magazine
In collaboration with the U.S. Air Force Global Strike Command, NNSA conducted successful surveillance flight tests using joint test assemblies (JTA) of the B61-7 and B61-11 last month. Analysis and flight recorder data from the tests indicate that both were successful. JTAs are mock weapons containing sensors and instrumentation that allow scientists and engineers from national laboratories to assess their performance. The assemblies contain no nuclear materials and are not capable of nuclear yield. These assemblies also include a flight recorder that stores bomb performance data for each test.
Stewards. Showmen and functionaries. You only have value in the party to the extent you have value to its voters. They don’t serve at your pleasure, and they don’t require your approval of their choices. That choice was made clearly and unequivocally by tens of millions of people who do the actual work in this country that pays for your prostitutes and pomposity. Contempt in Stone | The Kakistocracy
The crew covered the decks with jungle foliage and painted the hull to resemble cliffs, giving the ship the appearance of a small island. Traveling only at night and anchoring near shore, the minesweeper gradually made her way to West Australia, becoming the last Allied vessel to escape Java and the only one of her class in the region to survive. - - Futility Closet
Too badly injured to climb out again, he died of dehydration or starvation. Over the ensuing centuries, water running down the cave walls gradually incorporated the man’s bones into concretions of calcium carbonate. Undisturbed by predators or weather, they lay in an immaculate state of preservation until cave researchers finally discovered them in 1993 -- Altamura Man - Futility Closet
SHINMEN'S OPEN LETTER TO DONALD TRUMP -- TAKE OUT YOUR TOMAHAWK AND GO TO TOWN
SO NOW WHAT?
My advice is that you ignore the cuckolds and pussies in the GOP establishment who have abandoned you at the first major bump in the road. They are worthless. They are slack-jawed droolers who buckle under the slightest pressure.
It literally is now: Donald Trump’s revolution against the world
The underdog aspect of this thought will assuredly draw more support and drive it home.
The American people know that the current GOP establishment are spineless and weak (see McCain, RINO-Ryan, McConnell and so forth).
They are more interested in maintaining their own grift, graft and power than propelling the interests of the USA.
You still have a massive base supporting you. Tell the American people you are definitely going to “upset the apple cart” –in fact toss the establishment apple cart into the dumpster. This is the only way you are going to counter this obvious sabotaging of your campaign.
Note: The operative term here is: POLITICAL SABOTAGE.
So how about no more Mr. Nice guy for a while—just be freakin’ smart about it.
Your timing is great (“because you’d be in jail” –delivered perfectly FYI)
You have every reason to be angry now.
Take out your tomahawk and feel free to go to town. I and millions of Americans will ride towards the sounds of the guns to support you.
I say "give rage a chance."
The reasons that sugar, fats, animal products, and lack of fiber cause disease are manifold and not completely understood, but the statistics don’t lie: simple eating leads to long, healthy lives; lives with radically reduced rates of cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and all the degenerative diseases. (Cf. epidemiological studies of Buddhist communities, Seventh Day Adventist communities, Chinese & Japanese of 2 generations ago, remote South American farming communities even today) “In my own clinic, childhood obesity was increasing 1% a year - 23% of our pediatric patients are obese - now that rate is increasing 2% a year.” “I’m in charge of the colon cancer program here and tomorrow I’m addressing my doctors. All they think about is detection and surgery. This in spite of the fact we know meat consumption is the largest correlation. It’s crazy, but I can’t get them thinking in terms of prevention.” – my doc to me, last week Four people have kindly written | HappyAcres
Enlightened male-identifying person that he is, Eric Schucht unveils the 400-year-old conspiracy
to deny women the privileges of men and make them rely on men (like Schucht) to carry their personal items: It’s quite amazing how many pockets guys have at their disposal. From shirt pockets, sweatpants pockets, to even kilt pockets, clothing is stacked in our favor. Not only do men have numerous pockets, but they’re also huge. I’ve been able to hang onto to three phones, two wallets, and a pair of keys in just my jeans pockets alone. Why shouldn’t women receive the same luxury? - The College Fix
Experts said Arctic sea ice would melt entirely by September 2016 - they were wrong
Scientists such as Prof Peter Wadhams, of Cambridge University, and Prof Wieslaw Maslowski, of the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, have regularly forecast the loss of ice by 2016, which has been widely reported by the BBC and other media outlets. Prof Wadhams, a leading expert on Arctic sea ice loss, has recently published a book entitled A Farewell To Ice in which he repeats the assertion that the polar region would free of ice in the middle of this decade. As late as this summer, he was still predicting an ice-free September. Yet, when figures were released for the yearly minimum on September 10, they showed that there was still 1.6 million square miles of sea ice (4.14 square kilometres), which was 21 per cent more than the lowest point in 2012.
Even mild nothing-burgers like Mitt Romney got the business from that fat woman on CNN. But, friends told me Trump was beating the old bag up, so I tuned in just in time to see him put the saddle on the fat cow and ride her around the debate stage. I did not watch a lot of it, but it was fun seeing the good guys win. Two Worlds | The Z Blog
The whole thing [2nd Debate] was (another) clown show reasonable people didn't waste time with as they were doing more responsible things. During that approximate time period I manufactured about 300 rds of .308 while Shannon chewed on a beef broth boiled big Kong in the waning days autumn. It's coming....

! Everything! Every thing!! Everything on teevee and the news and the radio and the 21Cen media is a lie. It's all lies! A relentless barrage of parasite attack vectors to enslave your mind. Decide on what you want to do, and do it. Ignore all distractions. Crush, evade, or overcome all obstacles. There is not a single person on God's green Earth who knows more than you about what you should do and think. Make allies, make friends, form teams. Teams get things done. By yourself you accomplish nothing. Posted by: John A. Fleming at October 11, 2016 9:58 PM
They bewail the acceptance of Trump by other, allegedly less principled conservatives. They have read themselves into oblivion. Because Norman Podhoretz and Irving Kristol came quickly and cogently from the soft left to the Reagan right, where they were graciously received, and blended well with the such traditional conservatives as Bill Buckley and even such paleoconservatives as Pat Buchanan, they earned some of the stardom of the great Reagan victories. Whichever party wins this election, the heirs of the Reagan intellectual Right who have noisily endorsed Hillary as the lesser of evils will be wearing sackcloth and ashes and speaking inaudibly in the wilderness for a long time. To the Democrats, they are useful idiots; to the Republicans, they are deserters in battle, turncoats. Donald Trump – Democratic Hypocrisy Challenged | National Review
Infogalactic does not share the highly centralized structure of Wikipedia or the ideological dogma of the Wikimedia Foundation.
The primary requirements are for the information contributed to be true, relevant, and verifiable, rather than cited from a so-called “published reliable source”, since experience has proven how reliance upon the latter can be easily gamed by editors and administators alike. There is no culture of notability, ideology, or deletionism at Infogalactic. The addition of perspective filters and two levels of Context and Opinion to every page means that the average editor's contribution is much less likely to be deleted for political reasons or fall victim to the edit wars over controversial pages. -- Infogalactic
Listen to the questions asked by the ones that were allowed to talk. I think they way they phrased things or the topics they chose to talk about reveal that they aren’t “undecided” at all. On top of that, CSPAN revealed how the whole process works: once these “undecided” people are chosen, they are given four cards to fill out, with one question per card. Then, Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz or people working for them went through the cards and selected which ones they wanted people to ask during the debate. 5 Takeaways from Second Presidential Debate
- There is no truth, only competing agendas.
- All Western (and especially American) claims to moral superiority over Communism/Fascism/Islam are vitiated by the West’s history of racism and colonialism.
- There are no objective standards by which we may judge one culture to be better than another. Anyone who claims that there are such standards is an evil oppressor.
- The prosperity of the West is built on ruthless exploitation of the Third World; therefore Westerners actually deserve to be impoverished and miserable.
- Crime is the fault of society, not the individual criminal.
- Poor criminals are entitled to what they take. Submitting to criminal predation is more virtuous than resisting it.
- The poor are victims. Criminals are victims. And only victims are virtuous.
- Therefore only the poor and criminals are virtuous. (Rich people can borrow some virtue by identifying with poor people and criminals.)
- For a virtuous person, violence and war are never justified. It is always better to be a victim than to fight, or even to defend oneself.
- But “oppressed” people are allowed to use violence anyway; they are merely reflecting the evil of their oppressors.
- When confronted with terror, the only moral course for a Westerner is to apologize for past sins, understand the terrorist’s point of view, and make concessions.
Second Wave Feminism
was proof that women, lacking a man around to say no, will begin to commit suicide by destroying the culture that allows them to prosper. That it quickly degenerated into Third Wave Feminism is all the proof you need. The Wikipedia entry for Third Wave Feminism is mostly just word salad because there’s no way to provide a concise description of what amounts to a grab bag of outburst by mentally ill women.Broken Women | The Z Blog
API: Bill Clinton in heroic second try convinces the president that he has not inhaled in yearsThe swing states' Democrat Party chairpersons have always been able to correctly predict a massive turnout of the embalmed.
Anticipating strong necrophobic resistance from Tea Party types and other conspiracy theory aficionados, Democrat leaders in the House and the Senate vowed to preempt the living by expanding civil and voting rights of the decomposed by eliminating the voter ID requirement. The dearly departed have risen for the Democrats in past elections in large numbers, and this year the Democrat strategists predict a record turnout. -- People's Cube
It is unclear if he will ever return to the broadcast. “He will never be on the show again,” an on-air source said Sunday night, reflecting what staffers are saying behind the scenes. A second source at the network confirmed Monday that his return is unlikely. : The Other McCain
Meanwhile, Election 2016 rolls on....
It is one of several scenes of an entire drama, almost an parallel universe which exists outside the 2016 spectacle which has captured the American public's imagination. Events epochal to those whom they directly concern and important by any objective standard are foreshortened by false perspective into tiny insignificant occurrences happening long ago and far away. The striking thing is how this administration is bequeathing a comprehensive catastrophe to the next president almost without anyone, least of all the semi-retired chief executive, paying more than cursory attention. - - | PJ Media
the skilled guitarist and vocalist spilled nearly his entire mugful of freshly pressed artisan coffee all over his prized pair of skinny jeans, forcing the man to borrow a pair of his wife’s pants, sources confirmed Thursday. A source within the household reported that Johnson was reaching for his tub of all-natural hair pomade when he inadvertently knocked over his favorite Teavana mug, scorching his skin and rendering his pair of AG skinny jeans unwearable. | The Babylon Bee
