    According to a new poll out today from Quinnipiac University, Hillary Clinton "is not honest and trustworthy, Florida voters say 51—43 percent, Ohio voters say 53—40 percent and Pennsylvania voters say 54—40 percent."

  • At a campaign stop today in South Carolina, Hillary Clinton is expected to unveil a plan calling for tax credits for businesses that hire and train apprentices.
  • A New York appeals court heard arguments yesterday over whether to release the grand jury minutes from the Eric Garner case. Garner was the Staten Island man who died after NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo placed him in a chokehold. The grand jury declined to indict Pantaleo despite video evidence showing Garner's death.
  • Neil Young is not happy about the fact that his song "Rockin' in the Free World" was played at Donald Trump's press conference yesterday. 
  • The Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers last night to win the NBA championship.

  1. The OPM Hack Is the Clearest Symbol of the Obama Era
    …We are governed by progressives who have an infinite faith in the federal government’s ability to manage enormously complicated tasks and almost no interest in ensuring the government actually does those tasks well.

    1. Well said sir.

      When you point out to the luddites that follow the “big government” religious movement that their faith is misplaced and examples like this prove it, they tell you that nobody is perfect and we just have to deal with things like this when they happen. Asking them if that logic should be applied to the private sector and that their proposed solution of letting government do anything and everything then seems stupid, only serves to have them resort to name calling you for pointing out the flaw in their reasoning.

      Statists just hate a system which rewards/punishes people for their choices, and want one where equality of outcome, even if that outcome is misery, is enforced. That sort of thinking doesn’t come from anything positive.

      1. When you point out to the luddites that follow the “big government” religious movement that their faith is misplaced and examples like this prove it, they tell you that nobody is perfect and we just have to deal with things like this when they happen.

        In my exp this is the biggest difficulty to arguing libertarianism from a consequentialist perspective. If you point out some horrifying consequence of government incompetence, the progressive argues back that the right people just weren’t in charge. The empirical observation that increasing government intervention always produces the same sorts of outcomes, though it is there to be seen, doesn’t register for people who want to believe otherwise. So I usually just end up arguing the case for freedom on more a priori grounds.

        1. …and even then…

        2. The problem, as I have experienced it, really is that you are trying to argue through the use of logic and facts with someone that has an unshakable belief, based on an article of faith (and have no doubt that liberalism is the new religion). You are better off telling them that you have the answer because you talk to plants or something, and they told you they like water (like, from the toilet or something) more than they like Brawndo the thirst mutilator.

    2. No squirrels will ruin my Hello routine. /waves fist.

      “According to a new poll out today from Quinnipiac University, Hillary Clinton “is not honest and trustworthy,”

      And she laughs.

      40% think she’s honest? That’s rather, er, troubling.

      1. That is a bit troubling. Even if she wasn’t a liar, she is one of the biggest phonies among a groups of people who are pretty much all massive phonies.

        1. She is the Holden Caulfield of permed self-tanners?

          1. Catcher in the Rye is a piece of shit.

    3. You have to remember the people in the Obama administration are all career political operatives or academics or maybe work in some nonprofit thing. All they know how to do is talk. All they have ever done is talk and been rewarded for saying the right things. So they have convinced themselves that talk is all that matters. If they just say the right words, things will happen.

      The Obamacare website debacle was a great example of this. They said “build a website”. The President said “failure is not an option”. So they thought it would happen. Same thing here. They had a security program. They said the networks must be secure. No one was more shocked than they were when that didn’t happen. They said the words didn’t they?

      The Obama Administration has been among other things an eight year tutorial for the country on the difference between cleverness and competence.

        1. As Eric Hoffer succinctly put it:

          “Nothing so offends the doctrinaire intellectual as our ability to achieve the momentous in a matter-of-fact way, unblessed by words.”

          1. John, Thank you for that post. It is thoughtful, well-written, and spot on.
            Great read!

      1. Can we refer to the Obama administration as the “South Pacific Cargo Cult Presidency” or would that be racist?

        1. It would, at the very least, be othering to South Pacific Cargo Cults.

  2. Neil Young is not happy about the fact that his song “Rockin’ in the Free World” was played at Donald Trump’s press conference yesterday.

    He hit on probably the least objectionable thing.

    1. Rust never sleeps, and neither should FOE if he wants to maintain first commenter status…

  3. Pittsburgh Man Charged With Robbing Bank With a Sex Toy

    Stein was arrested after a PNC Bank in the Pittsburgh suburb of Crafton was robbed of an undisclosed amount of money Monday. Crafton Police Chief Mark Sumpter told NBC station WPXI of Pittsburgh that Stein “stated he had a bomb, showed the teller wires hanging out from his shirt and demanded cash.”

    The robber drove off in a white Toyota, which was pulled over on a ramp to northbound Interstate 79 by Robinson Township police, Sumpter said.

    Officers found money in a garbage bag, and beneath the front passenger seat, they found the device Stein is accused of having used in the bank robbery ? “a makeshift box he made out of a box, black tape, vibrator and cellphone,” Sumpter said.

    1. I thought maybe he threatened the teller with a high-capacity assault fucksaw.

    2. “I HAVE CUM”

    3. It doesn’t look like this criminal…

      [dons sunglasses]

      …is getting off.

      1. YEEAAHHH!!

    4. Black tape and a vibrator? Must look like the one Dolezal used.

    5. I imagine Warty would have gotten away with that.

      1. if it wasn’t for those meddling kids!

  4. Company Unveils World’s First Commercially Available Luxury Tank

    If you happen to be a motor enthusiast with a soft-spot for ‘extreme off road recreation’, we have great news for you. The world’s first luxury tank ? the Ripsaw EV2 Extreme Luxury Tank ? is now available for purchase!

    According maker Howe and Howe Tech, the platform ‘Ripsaw’ platform was originally designed and built as a high speed super tank for military use. It quickly proved to be the “fastest dual tracked vehicle ever developed” and ended up on the cover of Popular Science magazine. In 2013, Howe and Howe decided to introduce the cutting edge technology to the high end, luxury market. They spent “thousands of man hours” working on the project, and finally unveiled the ‘Ripsaw EV2’, a “handcrafted, limited run, high end luxury super tank, developed for the public.”

    1. +1 Environmentalist Sad Tear

    2. God, I love free markets.

    3. Is the girl a standard feature or an optional extra?

    4. As seen in GI Joe: Retaliation with THE ROCK behind the wheel…

      1. Also seen with a car chassis added in Mad Max:TR.

        As a pedantic retired armor officer, it’s technically not a tank. A tank involves HEAVY armor and a main gun. An APC is less armored and has a smaller gun system.

        This is an unarmored tracked vehicle, in military parlance, it would be referred to as a carrier, and could likely be used in either a logistics or recon role.

        1. More pedantics – an APC may have a smaller gun system.

          Tanks are primarily offensive weapons that are used to break things and kill people.

        2. An APC is less armored and has a smaller gun system.

          and designed to carry personnel (the P & C part) as its primary use.

  5. …Hillary Clinton is expected to unveil a plan calling for tax credits for businesses that hire and train apprentices.

    Extra credit if they refrain from banging them.

    1. She should start by applying this policy to people working on her own campaign…

  6. According to a new poll out today from Quinnipiac University, Hillary Clinton “is not honest and trustworthy, Florida voters say 51 – 43 percent, Ohio voters say 53 – 40 percent and Pennsylvania voters say 54 – 40 percent.”

    So what? She’s got the right reproductive organs for 2016!

    1. Are you sure?

    2. What could she have been thinking, speaking at events for small charities and pocketing a larger fee than the charity drew in the whole evening. Did she think nobody would ever call notice it?

      1. I think she doesn’t give a shit about getting nominated or winning, assumes that the public is sick of donks after eight years, and so is just treating this campaign as a last big score.

      2. Did she think nobody would ever call notice it?

        Actually, she didn’t, she assumed the media would keep carrying water for her without question.

        1. This. Duh.

        2. AFAIK, it’s the conservative media outlets that keep digging dirt on her. The stuff I’ve read on her has typically been on the Washington Examiner, Washington Free Beacon, Breitbart, etc.

  7. Obama Admin Making Billions In Obamacare Subsidy Payments Without Verifying Amounts
    …Obamacare’s premium subsidies are paid each month directly to insurance companies, to ease the burden of health coverage to eligible customers in the health law’s government exchanges. The payments add up: the federal government doled out almost $2.8 billion to insurers in just the first four months of 2014, when Obamacare launched.

    The agency tasked with making the payments hasn’t yet made sure the calculations behind the billions are accurate. An inspector general audit of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has found that the administration did not confirm the exact amount it owed each insurer before paying up, putting the billions in federal taxpayer funds at risk.

    The problem lies in HealthCare.gov’s unfinished back-end system. The portions of the website which allow insurers to communicate enrollee information with the federal government hasn’t yet been completed and was even less workable in 2014, when the outlays began….

    1. If this were a movie, no one would believe it. The plot holes are bigger than in Jurassic World. Have I mentioned how awful that movie is? But here we are, life imitating “art”.

      1. What is most amazing about it is that the people who rationally should be the most angry about it don’t care. Libertarians and conservatives should be angry but ultimately they get the pleasure of saying I told you so. Progs, however, depend upon people’s faith in government to succeed. Obama being such a monumental fuck up is going to make the public cynical of government for the next generation or more. And the Progs don’t care. They seem to have no interest whatsoever in their programs or government, that they believe so much in, actually working. They really have gone insane. Even the communists and the fascists tried to make the fucking trains run on time. Not these clowns.

        1. Well, the “I told you so” is a nice balance for the anger and frustration.

          Interesting observation about the Progs not caring. Some may have some grand vision of an Obamacare failure leading to single payer. But an awful lot do seem to believe that good intentions count, so despite being ineffective and overpriced, Obamacare is great.

          1. Welcome to universal health care defense.

            ‘”Yeah, the wait times are long, and yeah we lack beds and yeah the equipment is outdated and yeah, yeah, yeah….at least it’s free! Isn’t it great”?

          2. I think that in their mind it somehow magically stopped the evil private sector companies from making evil profits -despite the fact this isn’t true – so because of that even a failed system is better than what we had.

        2. The writing is on the wall.

          There is NO “reforming” government, making it more efficient or law-abiding.

          The only way out is to DOWNSIZE government. Shut entire departments down and slash their budgets.

        3. I don’t see why Liberals would be expected to care any more than the handful of other “Legacy” government programs they’ve wrought upon this country.

          From Medicare to SS to Welfare to the Department of Education, the maths are all so terrible. And yet, they get to wave their hands and say “Don’t talk about that inside baseball shit like ‘insolvency’! We are HELPING people!” And by and large, they get a free pass.

          The only program above that saw real reform was welfare, and that was not after the mathematical lunacy was revealed (we’d known about that for years), but because a bunch of high profile “Welfare Queen” stories made the consumers of welfare look bad in the public light.

          We are a country of citizens who rack up huge debt on new TVs and cars that we can’t afford. How can we be expected to compare fiscal realities of default when we get “what we want” regardless of whether we have to pay for it later?

          1. It used to be that liberals really believed in good government and wanted to make government work. People like Truman and FDR and even Johnson were wrong and lousy Presidents but you can’t say they didn’t try to make their programs work. Obama can’t even say that. He and his supporters seem to think that having the program is good enough. It doesn’t matter if it works. They are totally unbothered by the fact that it isn’t. They seem to live in a fantasy world where actual results don’t matter. Even the fucking communists were not that delusional. They may have shot anyone who pointed out what a failure things were but they at least understood that things failing in the real world was bad and something to be avoided. Not these people.

    1. 64) Somebody, I think John, made a point the other day I’ve been thinking about. He mentioned sort of off-handedly that African-Americans with light skin often used to pass as white, but now with Rachel Dolezal we have an example of somebody going the other way. Somebody said this was simply an extreme example of a wigger, a white dude or chick who adopts aspects of black culture to seem cool. But I think Dolezal goes to a level beyond this, and for a different reason as well. She didn’t (just) want to seem cool, she was passing as black to collect the privileges associated with the status blackness gives her in society. In the 1960s this would have sounded ridiculous, but I think in the future we will see this more often. It would be stupid to say racism doesn’t exist anymore, but I think we’re long past the point where structural racism is a serious impediment to the advancement of ambitious blacks. Increasingly, especially in spheres like academia or government service, it’s the other way around: being black is a benefit and whites who are able will try to take advantage of this.

      1. Maybe she’s just the victim of Progressive SJW education. Spending over a decade being told by school and college that white people and especially white males are the devil has got to have an effect on people. Perhaps she’s just an extreme example of it.

        We are going to see more of this in the future. Some white will react angrily and probably join up with various neo-nazi organizations. Some will be smart and see this racist bullshit the progressives preach for what it is and reject it, and others will embrace in wholeheartedly and end up like this Rachel woman.

        1. Saw Marc Lamont Hill(sp?) going on about how light skinned blacks used to try to pass as white to get advantage, yet Dolezal is white so why would she try to pass as black? This baffled him.

        2. This.

          Incentives matter. When you’re a white person in academia, particularly the liberal arts, you’re constantly told your opinions don’t matter or are invalid (CHECK YOUR PRIVILEGE!). So you “change” race. If you’re good enough to fool people you suddenly become relevant again.

          Any system that is based around the exclusion of some people based on arbitrary characteristics invites and fosters fraud.

      2. I wasn’t the one who said that but I wish I had been. And you are dead on correct. She pretended to be black because being so was a sure ticket to a free college education and a comfortable life as a race activist. There are real priviledges in this society that come with being black. Progs and the people who benefit from those privileges will never admit to it but the truth is what it is. And it is entirely unsurprising that white people have started pretending to be black.

        This isn’t the only example in the news recently. The Indian TV Actress who does The Mindy Project, has a brother who admits to pretending to be black in order to get into Med school. As an American of Indian descent he had no chance of getting into med school. As a black person he got right in.

        1. I sort of want to say that it is a good thing. People faking their race could really screw with affirmative action and other racist policies and preferences.

          But the enlightened, definitely not-racist progressives will probably just start making people officially register their race so that everyone will stay in their proper category.

          1. And it’s *totally* different from calling yourself another sex.

            1. I think so. One is an attempt to cope with what appears to be a legitimate and significant psychological problem, whatever the cause may be. The other is making use of somewhat arbitrary divisive categories and preferences to obtain some advantage or to be part of a culture you like.

              1. That is the point I made yesterday Zeb. Sex really is a scientific distinction based in reality. And you can’t be both sexes or mixed sex. Race in contrast is everything they claim sex is. It is a social construct and entirely arbitrary. But in response to this woman they are claiming race is some kind of real genetic difference. That of course is exactly the same thing racial supremacists say. So here we have people who claim to be committed to racial equality adopting the position that the various races are born with inborn traits that can’t be changed. Think about that for a minute and then scream in horror or laugh whichever your preference.

                1. I’d put it this way: Racial definitions have a large component of arbitrariness, and what we call race is a combination of culture and genetics. I mean, skin color doesn’t come from culture. I don’t know if there are other genetic differences, but the hair and skin sure seems genetic.

                  But with people of mixed heritage and so on, the lines are blurry, and a lot of it *is* self-identification.

                  1. GKC,

                    Skin color doesn’t come from culture but it doesn’t make you different from another person in any significant way. Sex in contrast does. Men really are bigger and stronger as a rule than women. Women do have different parts and can give birth and so forth. That makes race totally different than sex. The only way you can think race is like sex is if you think race really does make a difference to ones actual abilities and nature as a person. And that of course is the root of racial supremacy.

                    1. Again, a combination of genes and culture. But to be clear, the only genetic differences I’m sure of are skin and hair. Speculating on other differences is a great way to get called a racist.

                    2. Culture is not about race it is about place. I can be black and adopted by a white family and grow up culturally white. We have decided that skin color somehow defines who we are. That is as arbitrary as deciding that hair color does.

                    3. Sure, what we call racial *identity* is a big cultural thing. AFAIK, there is no gene for country music versus rap, etc., etc.

                2. So here we have people who claim to be committed to racial equality adopting the position that the various races are born with inborn traits that can’t be changed.

                  That was one of the first things that struck me too. I try to laugh.

                3. But in response to this woman they are claiming race is some kind of real genetic difference. That of course is exactly the same thing biologists, anthropologists, primatologists, etc, say.

                  FTFY

                  1. Maybe so Azathoth, but they don’t say it very loud or in public.

                  2. You are wrong. Biologists, at least, definitely don’t say that. The racial categories people use are not useful or significant biologically. Race is a category based on a few superficial characteristics. It is not a scientifically sound way to classify people.
                    Of course there are genetic differences between different groups of people. But using the racial categories people invented before there was any understanding of genetics is not the way to explore those differences.

                    1. Biologists, like all other serious scientists, are aware that “race is some kind of real genetic difference”

                      I am not speaking here about what laymen might say–hence the term ‘genetic’.

                      Just because some people use a term inappropriately does not mean that those who DO use the term appropriately are wrong.

                    2. Where on earth do you people get the idea that race is not real?! Is this Huffpo?

              2. Considering some of the other shit going on with Dolezal and her parents fighting over her black adopted brother, there may be some kind of psychological problem involved here as well.

          2. People faking their race combined with the rise in the number of interracial people will completely destroy the system. The reason why it was illegal for the races to marry in places like the Jim Crow South and Apartheid South Africa was not because the ruling whites thought it was icky. It was illegal because if the races started intermarrying, the entire system fell apart. You can only hand out privileges based on race if you can tell who is what race. Intermarriage makes that impossible. Sure you can treat the interracial like the inferior race but their existence in large numbers allows people of one race to pass for the other. As there are more interracial people in this country it will become impossible to tell if someone who claims to be black is really black or even interracial or just a white person with some Sicilian genes and a good tan. That will destroy the whole rotten system.

            1. Charlie Crist will continue to hate John Boehner for being fake orange.

    2. Mel Brooks?!

    1. I used to color myself with the green crayon because I liked to pretend I was the Hulk.

      1. And if you did this into your 20s and turned a warehouse into the Hall of Justice you’d be sent to see a shrink in Vienna.

        How this chick got this far is bizarre as it is nuts.

        1. The only yhing bizarre to me is how the people that outed her are not under attack by the PC crowd.

          1. There’s time. I watched her in an interview on NBC strategically angling herself as the victim. They even got the son to spill she’s not a ‘deceiver.’

            Eat poisoned nuts squirrels.

          2. There are already several commenter level people attacking her parents. Apparently they just can’t understand why parents would out their daughter when she is lying.

        2. Hey if he self-identifies as the Hulk who are we to judge?

        3. Um, Hall of Justice was Superfriends. You freaking Canucks.

          But if he had built a Hallf of Justice I would definitely want to hang out there.

          1. I know! That’s the point, get it?

            Hulk. Hall of Justice. Green paint. It’s all a mess.

        4. Actually there are people that do exactly that. I saw a documentary about it called Superheroes on Netflix. One of the funniest things I ever witnessed.

        5. That sound really freaking awesome actually. Now I just have to get the money to buy a warehouse.

    1. she is like a gift to comedy writers everywhere.

    2. I’m debating whether or not I should read this link. What would you rate the derp level of this?

        1. It won’t let you down.

    3. Do you keep this link in your favorites?

  8. Did everyone get their Rush-hate out of their system yesterday? Feeling better?

    1. I prefer Rush to Hannity.

      1. Rush is without a doubt the smarter of the two. The thing people have to understand about Rush is that he mostly loves fucking with liberals. He understands them and knows exactly what to say to piss them off.

        His show is ok, he makes a lot of good points, I just wish he would stop his copsucking.

        1. Exactly. It’s that shtick that works so well. And then when they misrepresent him – which is often – it’s a chance for him to mock them even more.

          He has the sanctimonious and self-righteous left by the balls.

          Plus he just reads articles and gives opinions on it. Horrors!

        2. In opposition, Rush can be brilliant. Supporting Republicans in power, he’s a massive war boner.

        3. Hanity is from the little I have seen of him a boring asshole whose act consists of being obnoxious. He is at best a carnival barker. Limbaugh in contrast is a first class entertainer. He can be funny as hell and uses humor to fuck with humorless and dense liberals. In addition, he makes some fairly good points thrown in with all of that once in a while.

          I think I and a good number of other people could do what Hanity does and probably do it a lot better. Very few people could do what Limbaugh does.

          1. The station out of Vt I listen to replaced Miller (who I like) with Beck. Beck is pretty entertaining as well.

            1. Apparently Miller chose to not renew his contract.

    2. I thought you meant Rush as in the Peart quote. What did Limbaugh do now?

      1. I’m pretty sure it was supposed to be about the band.

        Rush rules and I don’t want to know the politics of my favorite musicians because it is always disappointing.

        I don’t think Rush has ever been hard-core anything politically, Rand references or not. They just thought that the individualist message was cool, which a lot of people do without fully fleshing out the implications and becoming libertarians or anarchists.

        1. Just to be a Rush dork for one more second, while a lot of Peart’s lyrics are pretty silly, there are two songs in particular that I think are really great lyrics. Afterimage and Red Sector A, both from Grace Under Pressure (which, while a bit synth heavy is one of my favorite albums). The former is a very touching reflection on the death of a friend and the latter is about life in a concentration camp, based on Geddy Lee’s mother’s experience in the Holocaust.

          1. Zeb, yes I agree on those tunes but also on more of the album as well. Also – although synth heavy when played live tunes from Grace Under Pressure rock.

        2. I did mean the thread from yesterday about the band. I am always amazed at the amount of hate that three musicians with nothing more than a hard-core following and a very outside the mainstream approach to writing music can generate. You’d think they were the New York Yankees of music.

    3. The band or the radio dude? Doesn’t matter that much, as I’m perfectly willing to hate both.

  9. At a campaign stop today in South Carolina, Hillary Clinton is expected to unveil a plan calling for tax credits for businesses that hire and train apprentices.

    So she’s going to encourage the development of medieval-style guilds in the long run? Great!

    1. Indentured servitude is next. Wait, don’t we already have that except it’s called College Loans?

      1. I knew she was secretly stealing her new policy ideas from me! That explains the secret servers, dedicated to capturing cunning plans.

        Of course, she isn’t announcing the full plan, which, of course, is to offer a path to citizenship through indentured servitude. This must just be phase one.

        1. offer a path to citizenship through indentured servitude.

          This isn’t just for immigrants, is it?

          Because no one should be able to vote until they have cleaned a monocle!

          1. There are other possible applications.

      1. Shouldn’t you be out partying?

        What a team they are those Blackhawks.

        1. Stupid hockey. We hatesss it. We hatesss it forever.

        2. Doing kidney donation preparation and tests, etc. Last two games – no alcohol….oy. The Cup Final was more like being in England in November 1918…yea, we won…for about 30 seconds, followed by massive feeling of relief and weariness.

          Naturally, I said they would be out in Round 1. This is why I do not bet on sports.

          Parade is tomorrow – I shan’t be going.

          1. You’re donating a kidney?

      2. How many people are interested in being an apprentice watch-maker or chocolatier?

    2. Here in NYC, all of the training and apprentice programs I see advertized are run by the trades unions (masons, carpenters, plumbers, etc.); is this a backdoor way of rewarding union support of her campaign?

      1. Don’t forget how this government sponsored apprenticeship program can be used as a nifty gating system to reward those that pay homage and punish those that don’t. This sort of dynamic seems paramount to liberal policy making.

      2. The unions already control all building in NYC – what the hell more do they want.

    3. I saw on Derpbook that a super conservative friend of mine from college is pleased about this. She is a small business owner in DC and describes herself as undecided for 2016 in the post including being undecided about Hillary.

      Just goes to show that DC can melt any brain.

    4. I don’t know about tax credits, but working with a drywall installer and learning a trade will generally be a better use of one’s time than sitting in a high school class or taking oppression studies in college.

      1. Disclaimer: By saying “I don’t know about tax credits,” I was specifically *not* endorsing Hillary’s idea. Also, by saying a good word for apprenticeships, I was not endorsing indentured servitude or selling apprentices to Sudanese slavers.

        I’ve found I need these disclaimers nowadays.

        1. I’ve found I need these disclaimers nowadays.

          What are you talking about? There’s no way that government intimidation of anonymous commenters for writing non-threats muzzles speech.

      2. Yeah, but why on Earth do I need the government involved in that process at all? And if they keep the pressure up on eliminating internships and raising the minimum wage to being substantially over market for unskilled (which an entry-level apprentice mostly is) labor, where’s the market incentive to hire apprentices?

        1. I suspect that whatever Hillary does will make apprenticeships worse, not better. She just wants to get votes by saying nice things about it.

          1. I am, of course, kidding.

  10. …Hillary Clinton “is not honest and trustworthy, Florida voters say 51 – 43 percent, Ohio voters say 53 – 40 percent and Pennsylvania voters say 54 – 40 percent.”

    Except when she’s up against a Republican on Election Day.

    1. Well, then they will have to vote for her, because any Republican candidate will be a dangerous extremist, like Mitt Romney.

    2. For plenty of Democrats, that may be true, but how many are going to go out with any excitement to vote for her? Romney, for instance, may well have won if more GOP voters and run to the polls. Lack of excitement/fear/any other serious reservation = fewer voters.

  11. 100-Year-Old Woman Credits ‘Booze’ for Long Life

    A woman from Luzerne County had good reason to celebrate Tuesday.

    Pauline Spagnola of Plains Township celebrated with friends at her 100th birthday party at the Golden Living East Mountain Center near Wilkes-Barre.

    She says the secret to her longevity is “a lot of booze.”

    1. I’m convinced. I’m going to put some serious work into extending my lifespan starting tonight.

    2. Anything? Four Loko will do? Red Bull and Vodka? Or some specific concoction? Inquiring minds want to know.

      1. Vodka is Russian so it’s pure distilled evil. I think I’ll be buying some Jameson’s.

        1. I had the same exact thought this morning.

  12. Michelle Obama: Men Are ‘Useful’

    “I have one in my life,” she added, referring to President Obama. “I like him but you know we have to change the definition of what it means to invest in our young girls.”

    “I like blueberry pancakes, but you know we have to change the definition of what it means to twerk.”

    1. Who’s nuttier? Her or Dolezal?

  13. A New York appeals court heard arguments yesterday over whether to release the grand jury minutes from the Eric Garner case. Garner was the Staten Island man who died after NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo placed him in a chokehold. The grand jury declined to indict Pantaleo despite video evidence showing Garner’s death.

    This, after 8 years of Hope-and-Change!

    1. I believe Staten Island is where many NYPD call home, so the minutes could be interesting just because of that.

  14. NHS chief warns women not to wait until 30 to have baby as country faces a fertility timebomb
    One of Britain’s top NHS fertility specialists last night issued a stark warning to women: Start trying for a baby before you’re 30 ? or risk never having children.

    In a strongly worded letter to Education Secretary Nicky Morgan, consultant gynaecologist Professor Geeta Nargund has also demanded that teenagers are taught about the dangers of delaying parenthood, because of the spiralling cost to the taxpayer of IVF for women in their late 30s and 40s….

    1. Birth rate declines are happening across Europe. Muslim immigrants seem to be the only ones having more children than the replacement rate. It is not a stretch to imagine that Europe will be an Islamic continent before the end of this century.

      1. For ethnic Europeans it might be too late to reverse the trend.

    2. Yeah, I’ve had to have this conversation with several hardcore feminists in my life when I mention I’m having kids before thirty. They are in full on denial that there is any difference in my ability to have kids in my twenties vs thirties vs god forbid forties.

  15. Way to suck, Cleveland. You really let me down, again. Snd you cost me a lot of money.

    1. I’m impressed they even got this far with all that’s gone down with them.

      1. The East is weak and LeBron is just better than everyone. I am constantly amazed at how good he is.

        1. MJ, Magic, LeBron?

          1. It is so hard to compare because the rules are different (no hand-checking, no hard fouls) but the fact that LeBron can pass that well and still be able to put up 40 when he wants is absurd. It is cliche at this point but he is a combination of MJ and Magic.

            1. I agree with Crusty. He can literally play all positions.

  16. According to a new poll out today from Quinnipiac University, Hillary Clinton “is not honest and trustworthy, Florida voters say 51 – 43 percent, Ohio voters say 53 – 40 percent and Pennsylvania voters say 54 – 40 percent.”

    The fact that this isn’t 99-1 is a demonstration of the profound stupidity of the voters. Or the ability to live in a profound state of denial.

    1. I laughed hard at your new display name.

    2. It is absurd, and it says something really horrible about our culture. It’s not like there’s much serious debate about whether she’s acted lawlessly or unethically. That should be enough in a more virtuous society to drive her totally out of the public view for good, if not to get her locked up. Isn’t this level of corruption and dishonesty far more dangerous than stuff we throw people in prison for years for? I mean, was Martha Stewart’s lack of cooperation with the investigation into her (which never uncovered insider trading) worse than what Clinton has admitted to doing?

      We’re in a bad place, losing any willingness to judge people for their ethical failings in any real way or to hold people in power accountable for anything. She should be facing charges, not being viewed as even a potential nominee.

      Be ashamed, America. Be very ashamed.

      1. We’re in a bad place, losing any willingness to judge people for their ethical failings in any real way or to hold people in power accountable for anything.

        In other words, we’re becoming like Greece….

        1. In a way, yes. People tend to sneer at virtues like hard work, honesty, self-reliance, etc. That’s not a sign of a healthy culture. That’s not universal, of course, but it’s not shrinking, either.

    3. Yeah, that 40% of people DO find her trustworthy is terrifying

      1. Define ‘trustworthy’?

        I can trust Hillary to be a power-grabbing, vindictive, ego-maniacal sociopath who will do or say anything to destroy any and all people or obstacles to get what she is after.

        I do know what to expect. Trustworthy.

  17. Greek central bank issues ‘Grexit’ warning if aid talks fail

    The Greek central bank warned on Wednesday that the country would be put on a “painful course” towards default and exiting the euro zone if the government and its international creditors failed to reach an agreement on an aid-for-reforms deal.

    It also said Greece risked a renewed bout of recession and predicted that the current economic slowdown would accelerate in the second quarter of this year. The Greek economy had started growing again last year after being pounded by years of austerity, but fell back into negative growth in the first quarter of 2015, contracting by 0.2 percent year-on-year.

    The ongoing crisis has prompted an outflow of deposits of about 30 billion euros ($33.84 billion) from Greek lenders between October and April, the central bank said.

    1. Which have there been more of in the world, Grexit warnings or Al Qaeda number twos?

      1. any day now… any day… *snore*

      2. Greece should threaten to join ISIS.

      3. Grexit is silly sounding and awkward. I suggest Hellexodos as an alternative.

    2. “The Greek economy had started growing again last year after being pounded by years of austerity,….”

      Uh huh. I just can’t understand why they can’t pull out of it.

    3. Fuck Greece. Just fucking Grexit already. Piss off, take your fiat currency with you. “If you like the euro, you can keep the euro.”

    4. Here’s the thing: If the Greeks can leave, the Brits can leave. And if the Brits leave it all goes to shit. So the Greeks won’t be allowed to leave.

      1. Yet if they do, for a while, I can buy the Parthenon for $10,000, if I act quickly.

        1. but wait, there’s more!! Buy one Parthenon, get the second for half off!

          1. Ooh, how much for the whole Acropolis?

            1. Buy the Parthenon at full price, and we’ll throw in the temple of Athena Nike for free! But hurry – this offer won’t last long!

    1. And….

      I SF’d the link in my first ever comment.

      1. Don’t worry, it’s a rite of passage.

        1. I thought it was more of a defining characteristic?

  18. “Neil Young is not happy about the fact that his song “Rockin’ in the Free World” was played at Donald Trump’s press conference yesterday. ”

    Did Neil Young release this song on an album that a record company distributed nationally? Does he enjoy royalties from it every time it’s played on a radio station? If so, he should shut the hell up. If he didn’t want people playing his song, he should have only ever played it for family and friends.

    1. From the TMZ story: “……Neil, a Libertarian and Canadian citizen, is NOT down with Trump’s campaign. We’re told he’s actually backing Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.”

      What is with these guys claiming to be Libertarians in one breath and then exposing themselves as nothing more than Marxist progs in the next? Peart yesterday, Young today, WTF?

      1. In answer to your question I think people like Maher and Young do that to muddy the water about what libertarians are, to help build straw men that their pinko buddies can later kick around.

        So, Neil Young is supporting Bernie Sanders. Who could have seen that coming?

        1. You beat me to it. Just like with all their other buzzwords, they redefine shit so they can construct straw men. Every Salon article… every Jizzabel rant (credit to whoever said it first)… every “enlightened” Derpbook post… They all miss the main themes and core of libertarianism.

          In addition, the GOP going on about liberty and freedom while endorsing policies that are anything but… doesn’t help either.

      2. If he’s Canadian, why does this matter?

      3. Goddamned Canadians don’t even know the definitions of words.

    2. Maybe I misunderstand the song, but I always understood Neil to be using the expression ironically. Wouldn’t playing it at a campaign rally be on par with politicians blasting “Born in the U.S.A.” or “Fortunate Son”?

      1. Even worse. Those two songs at least express pride in the country itself. They just claim the country is being sold out by politicians. Rockin in the Free World is a put down really of the entire US and everything in it. It is a really dumb song to use and it is a shitty song on top of that.

  19. Neil Young is not happy about the fact that his song “Rockin’ in the Free World” was played at Donald Trump’s press conference yesterday.

    I would be offended if anyone played that song given the state of freedom in the “Free World”.

    1. Is that song sarcastic though? Shouldn’t Neil be laughing about all these idiots playing his song and not getting the joke?

      1. Yeah, that’s what I always thought, too

      2. I don’t think Neil Young has much of a sense of humor.

    2. “…given the state of freedom in the “Free World”.

      Due to policies espoused by people like…. Neil Young.

      1. Well, I hope Neil Young will remember
        A Southern man don’t need him around anyhow

    3. I think people should shut the fuck up about how their song is used. After you record it, it isn’t yours. If the National Pedophile Society wants to play “My Sharona” at their events, well, that isn’t the reason an angry mob should descrnd on the gathering.

      1. My presidential campaign, if it ever happens, will use the entire 17+ minutes of “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” as an intro.

        What’s the most libertarian/liberty-promoting rock song that is popular enough to be generally known? “Theme from Shaft?”

        1. Taxman by The Beatles?

          Here’s one for you, nineteen for me…

      2. Why hate you Old Man with Candy Woodchipper?

  20. Should we expect full participation in benefit programs?

    SNAP and the EITC are important work support programs that reduce poverty, especially for children. The Census Bureau’s supplemental poverty measure (versus the official poverty measure) shows that in 2013, refundable tax credits (mostly the EITC) reduced poverty among children by 6.4 points and SNAP reduced child poverty by 2.9 points. From a poverty perspective, it is important that eligible people be able to access benefits without unnecessary burdens. But is full participation realistic?or even desirable?

    Reasons for non-participation suggest that it may not be. A commonly-held belief is that barriers prevent eligible participants from receiving benefits.

    …snip…

    But research shows that a sizeable number of eligible people do not participate in SNAP because they do not want government assistance. According to a 2003 USDA report on the subject, 27% of eligible non-participants indicated that they would not enroll in the program even if they were assured they were eligible. The report cited the desire to feel independent as the primary driver in not wanting benefits.

    1. The report cited the desire to feel independent as the primary driver in not wanting benefits.

      Why, those fuckers. How dare they insist on “independence”. /state bureaucrat

  21. So I’m playing on our company co-ed softball team. My coworker Julie broke her leg while playing second base, then the opposing pitcher had to leave the game after she took a line drive off of her leg right under the kneecap. I sprained my thumb a few weeks ago, another person strained their calf muscle and our former pitcher had to get back surgery for a bulging disc. We need the damn Red Cross on standby at our games.

    1. Sometimes you just need to admit you are old geezers and stick to bingo?

  22. A judge just ruled Monster Energy must pay the Beastie Boys $668,000 in legal fees in addition to $1.7m verdict

    “Presiding over trial and hearing the surviving Beastie Boys’ testimony, it was apparent to the court that this case had great personal significance to them,” he said. “Monster’s commercial exploitation of the band’s music and songs, and what the Beastie Boys perceived as Monster’s crass misappropriation of the name of the recently deceased Yauch in its video promoting its energy drinks, appeared to have deeply offended plaintiffs.”

    Yauch died of cancer in May 2012 at age 47.

    The judge said Beastie Boys’ band members Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz and Michael “Mike D” Diamond approached the case “with special zeal,” testifying that as a matter of principle they have not licensed their music for product advertisements and would have turned down Monster if it had asked for permission.

    1. “I’m Mike D and I get respect, your cash and jewelry is what I expect.”

    1. Shootings From Asbury Park, NJ.

      Includes classics like ‘Does this bullet stop at 82nd street?’ ‘Lost in a hail of bullets’ and ‘It’s hard to be a cop in the city.’

      1. “blinded by the night-stick” has got to be on there.

        1. Or “Tender is the Night Stick.”

    2. This is why only cops should carry guns.

    3. Officers who were on the scene then talked Seidle into allowing them to remove the girl from his car, but once they did so, Seidle ? who had been holding a gun to his own head ? then walked to the front of his wife’s car and shot her again, the prosecutor said.

      It’s a fine time for police to find restraint.

      1. I’ve heard of professional courtesy, but this is ridiculous.

        1. Good thing he didn’t reach for his waistband.

    4. How was this shooting “apparent?”

    1. Will he have to register has a sex offender for twenty-five years?

    2. “She called the other girls and they used their cell phones to take video of part of the footage, which was turned over to police. The girls then deleted all 30 minutes from the iPod.”

      Smart girls.

      1. ‘Thanks girls. We’ll, erm, take…care of it. Run along now.’

  23. Squirrel test

    1. squirrels seem random today

      1. Yep. It’s even more annoying than usual. Out.

      2. It may not be the squirrels. It may be our benevolent rulers looking for our true identities.

        Perhaps we should do a roll call to be sure no one was disappeared.

        1. Robot Roll Call!

          Cambot!

          Gypsy!

          Tom Servo!

          Crow!

          1. If you’re wondering how he eats and breathes, and other science facts,
            then repeat to yourself “it’s just a show, I should really just relax.”

  24. Alabama man had sex with wife’s dog, feeling she paid too much attention to it

    His wife made the disgusting discovery while spying on Medley for fear he was sleeping with another woman, police said.

    “She actually thought he was having an affair with another woman and hid a recording device,” Geneva Police Capt. Ricky Morgan told the Eagle.

    “She learned he was in fact molesting the dog.”

    Morgan told WTVY Medley was “upset because (his wife) paid more attention to the dog than him.”

    1. Buster suffered injuries from the alleged sex that police initially thought might led to his euthanization, but a veterinarian later said Buster is recovering, according to WTVY.

      Buster is a shih tzu.

    2. The bitch was leading him on.

  25. According to a new poll out today from Quinnipiac University, Hillary Clinton “is not honest and trustworthy, Florida voters say 51 – 43 percent, Ohio voters say 53 – 40 percent and Pennsylvania voters say 54 – 40 percent.”

    But do they know that she is the only candidate that likes women and brown people?

    /Neil Peart

    1. That was a gloriously stupid thing to say by Neil.

      What’s with Canadians named Neil and they’re left-wing derpiness?

      I thought only Canadians named Tommy and Gordie were commies.

      1. their.

      2. Canadian leftists tend to be as much (or even more) hyperbolic than their American counterparts. Remember all the people constantly repeating that Harper has carved out a ‘soft dictatorship’ over the past couple years while praising the guy who declared martial law over a kidnapping as the bestest Prime Minister ever? Combine that with the inferiority/superiority complex that many Canadians have in regards to the United States (and its institutions, government, healthcare, etc.) and you get insanely vapid comments like that. Being a Canadian leftist political junkie basically requires you to plug your ears and ignore absolutely everything wrong with the Canadian system while pretending America is some barely developed country with a racial caste system.

        1. Quote for truth, Titor.

          And….WAR OF 1812!

          1. Admittedly the Tories haven’t helped with the War of 1812 stuff since they constantly promoted it with their bicentennial stuff. But at least that’s a better nationalism than the image the Liberals try to promote where 1968 saw the birth of true Canada when Emperor Trudeau was crowned.

        2. That’s been pretty much my observation. I’ve got some Canadian friends but they tend to be the select few canooks who don’t seize every moment of them being around an American to tell me how awful the US is in every way imaginable, from the cheese to the “rampant gun violence” (which they think is perpetrated mainly by rural white men for some reason). Meanwhile I limit my Canada criticism to the rampant socialist weaselism and the obvious inferiority complex towards Americans that is even more rampant.

          1. My favourite are the people who hold up racial issues in America as proof of some kind of national degeneracy, while pretending that Canadian native issues are fine as long as they keep throwing money at reservations run like satraps by corrupt or incompetent leaders.

            That’s not to say all reservations are run poorly, just that Canada’s damn lucky to have a native population low enough that you can placate them. Anyone up for another Oka?

            1. Canada has a long. lingering, tradition of racism. It’s just that we’re busy staring at American racial hyperbole on the news and conveniently overlook ours.

              Cheese? You can’t go five minutes without having some hipster talk about how ‘bad’ American beer is.

              We can be so insufferable and parochial in our own way.

                1. +1 Livin’ on stew and drinkin’ bad whiskey.

                  https://youtu.be/NjoU1Qkeizs

              1. Cheese? You can’t go five minutes without having some hipster talk about how ‘bad’ American beer is.

                And whether it’s cheese or beer, I venture to say that American supermarkets have a shit ton of variety available in both of those categories. Not to mention the microbrews which are diverse and wonderful to such an extent that one just cannot simply say “American beer=bad” because there’s just so much of it. Granted I’ve really only entered Canadian grocery stores in Windsor and Halifax, I just didn’t see that kind of variety available to consumers.

                1. That’s because everyone knows that choice is the reason we have starving children.

                  /Bernie Sanders

          2. Most Canadians I know are close enough to American in general outlook that you have to squint to tell the difference. They’re lean left, but so do many Americans. And they don’t all lean left.

            1. If you want to fully experience the hardcore Canadian leftist, go to a United Church.

            2. Yeah it is actually hard to tell the difference between an American and a Canadian, especially to foreigners who don’t have an ear for the slight accent difference.

              Sometimes when I traveled Europe in the Bush days, I would tell people I was a Canadian when asked just so I wouldn’t get an earful about what America is like from European experts who’ve never been there. That and they’d ask if I was going to vote for Obama (note: not one single European was ever able to tell me who Obama was running against).

  26. After trans fat ban, what else should be removed from food?

    Erik Olson of the National Resources Defense Council says it’s not just trans fats that may pose health risks.

    “There are a lot of chemicals in our food supply that people have no idea are in there,” Olson said. “There are some of these artificial flavorings chemicals and artificial coloring chemicals. Some of them pose a cancer risk, others pose risk to developing children.”

    1. He thinks they “may pose health risks” but he doesn’t know for sure or what those risks even are. That is one hell of a compelling case for action isn’t it?

    2. The entire GRAS system is at-risk – which has been the goal of the anti-capitalist, organic crowd for some time. It’s easy to decimate an industry or economy if via regulation, just ask the EPA…

  27. German traffic light has been red for 28 years

    “The administrative regulation as set out in section 37 paragraph 2 of the of the transportation regulations alludes to the need for an exact plan for traffic light signals,” a city representative told The Local.

    “Because the green light means ‘transport is free to go’ all the other lights in conflict to this one must show red. That also includes the light on Ziegelstrasse.

    The red light instructs: stop at the intersection. After stopping one is also allowed to turn right if there is a sign to the right of the traffic light that shows a green arrow on a black background.

    Because on Ziegelstrasse one is only allowed to turn right, in accordance with regulation 27 section 37 of the transport regulations, we can do without using the traffic signal’s green light.”

    1. Because on Ziegelstrasse one is only allowed to turn right,

      Did Zoolander design Ziegelstrasse?

    2. I’ve seen Germans wait to cross an empty street after midnight because the Don’t Walk signal was lighted. I imagine there are German motorists who have stuck waiting to turn left at this intersection for years.

      1. I’ve seen that too.

        One thing I like about Austria is that Austrians know when to break the rules. I’ve seen Austrians cross the street late at night despite having a “Don’t Walk” sign.

        1. You know who else was Austrian and broke the “Thou shalt not kill” rule?

          No Godwinning allowed in your answer.

          1. Willy P Hitler. Technically, not a godwin.

          2. Emperor Franz Joseph I?

          3. The Terminator?

          4. Prince Eugen?

      2. I once got jeered by a crowd of Germans for crossing the street without the appropriate signal light, even though there was no traffic as far as the eye could see. They chanted at me “New Yorker! New Yorker!” and I responded “Aaaayyyyy, I’m walkn’ heeere. Fo’ getta bout ehh”

        1. You should have goose-stepped across while giving the Hitler salute once they started jeering.

          1. Ha ha! There will be a next time. I go to Germany about once a year and until the day I day I will never conform to the cattle-like pedestrian culture. This will happen…

            1. day I die*

          2. And he would no doubt have landed his ass in the clink for that WTF. They especially don’t like furriners doing that stuff in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland.

          3. I hear they like to arrest people for doing the Hitler stuff.

            1. I mean, that’s what they do *now,* it wasn’t always their policy.

      3. They’re just following orders…

        1. You know who else…. nevermind….

      4. Late night, middle of nowhere and a stop sign….

        Comes to complete stop, looks both ways, waits, then slowly proceeds – German.

        Checks to see no one is coming, rolls through/California stops – American.

        Blows through at full speed – Brazilian.

        1. Drives full speed on moped with eyes closed and flipping the bird —- Italian

        2. Blows through, speeds up if there is a pedestrian nearby, is possibly drunk – Russian.

          1. This could also be NYC.

  28. California has cut off the water to the upscale town of Mountain House.

    In the long run, this drought will cause Californians to migrate to freer states and f*** them up like California.

    1. I’m waiting for signs that the Progressive infestation has dropped below critical mass and then moving there. Because it really is the most beautiful place in the US.

      1. By the time that happens they will have turned California into a scorched wasteland. And I’m not even being hyperbolic on that point.

      2. I would move (back) to SF in a heartbeat if it wasn’t for the people already living there.

  29. Kerry says ‘patience wearing thin’ on Syria’s Assad

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday he had discussed Syria’s use of chemical weapons with Russia and the international community’s patience with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s behavior was wearing thin.

    Speaking to reporters via video conference from Boston, Kerry said he was confident Assad’s government was responsible for a “preponderance” of chemical attacks against his own people and that “everyone’s patience is wearing thin.”

    Kerry said it was one of the issues he discussed with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov by phone on Monday and was confident Lavrov would raise it with Assad, who agreed in 2013 under a U.S.-Russia brokered deal to dismantle the country’s chemical weapons arsenal.

  30. California has cut off the water to the upscale town of Mountain House.

    That town is like a person spouting things that Bill O’Reilly doesn’t want to hear.

  31. I am black, and Rachel Dolezal is not
    Her brother calls her racial passing an act of “self-hatred.” To me, it’s apocalyptic, white privilege on steroids

    While most White parents who adopt Black children or children of color from other countries are embarking on an authentic desire to create a family, I have known of other White families whose desire to adopt a child of color is undermined by their White-savior complex, whereupon they not only save the life of a poor Black child, but also in their minds, they give the child a life. Obviously, this a tricky argument to make?as the Black community has always taken care of our own with grandparents, aunts and uncles, and family friends helping to raise kids who need a home, most Black kids who are up for adoption are likely facing some difficult hurdles (still, a life already being lived).

    We do not know the details of how Dolezal’s parents came to adopt their Black children, but as the only White and biological child of her parents, perhaps Rachel felt outnumbered?and what do White people do when they feel outnumbered? They tend to dismiss, disregard, or kill the people blocking the way to their entitled experience and assume the land, culture and identity as their own experience and invention (see: America).

    1. That escalated quickly.

    2. “perhaps Rachel felt outnumbered?and what do White people do when they feel outnumbered? They tend to dismiss, disregard, or kill the people blocking the way”

      But, but…doesn’t that mean Rachel would have killed, dismissed, or disregarded her family members? Didn’t she do the opposite of that?

    3. So, the whole family is fucking insane.

    4. Everyone’s lost their god damned fucken minds.

    5. People who think like this are monsters.

    6. Is it the shame of Rutgers?

      OH! It’s not! Dammit!

    7. Also, there are certain black activists who seriously have a genocidal hatred of white people that is so irrational I don’t know how they function in daily society. This shit:

      “We do not know the details of how Dolezal’s parents came to adopt their Black children, but as the only White and biological child of her parents, perhaps Rachel felt outnumbered?and what do White people do when they feel outnumbered? They tend to dismiss, disregard, or kill the people blocking the way to their entitled experience and assume the land, culture and identity as their own experience and invention (see: America).”

      What does that even mean? When black people have the opportunity, they have also frequently dismissed, disregarded, or killed the people blocking their way (see: Rwanda, Darfur, Boko Haram’s controlled areas of Nigeria), but I’m not a racist lunatic so I don’t claim that this is an intrinsic aspect of being black.

      1. Well only white people are capable of racism. Because in order to be racist, you must have power to back up your bigotry and blacks have had historical disadvantage blah blah blah white supremacy blah blah blah place of privilege.

        1. There is human, and there is not human. Race divisions are real enough, as are cultural divisions, but as far as attitudes, behaviors, thinking, emotional reactions, etc. go, there’s just human. Humans have prejudices and biases. To pretend otherwise or to take a snapshot in time and say THIS IS ALL OF REALITY is foolish and delusional. Want to alter human behavior, don’t treat superficial differences in culture as profound divisions. After all, there are blacks who act white, whites who act black–heck, there are men who act like women and women who act like men.

      2. Wait, is this guy alleging that Dolezal killed all of her siblings? I’m so confused…

      3. Hah, I just noticed the capitalization. “What do White people do…”

        Yes, white people are their own homogenous species, with ingrained traits that are distinct from the other races.

        Fucking racists.

        1. Maybe he’s talking about people who are members of the White family?

    8. Yay, the reactions just get dumber and dumber. Now passing as black is also white privilege. And apparently she killed her adopted siblings?

    9. So what about her older brother, Joshua?

  32. Have we posted this before?

    Becoming disabled by choice, not chance: ‘Transabled’ people feel like impostors in their fully working bodies

    His goal was to become disabled.

    People like Jason have been classified as ”transabled” ? feeling like imposters in their bodies, their arms and legs in full working order.

    “We define transability as the desire or the need for a person identified as able-bodied by other people to transform his or her body to obtain a physical impairment,” says Alexandre Baril, a Quebec born academic who will present on “transability” at this week’s Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities at the University of Ottawa.

    “The person could want to become deaf, blind, amputee, paraplegic. It’s a really, really strong desire.”

    1. Yes a couple of weeks ago in the PM links. That is without a doubt the most fucked up thing I have ever heard. At least changing sex has an element of sexual perversion to it. This is straight up self mutilation. Something is seriously wrong with a lot of people’s psyche in this country. This is the most extreme example of it. But I think the tattoo and piercing culture, when taken to the extreme, is another example. People seem to have a real and deep sense of self loathing.

      And just to throw a bomb, the ones doing it seem to be middle class white people. You see black people. men mostly, with a fair number of tattoos but you never see black people with the kind of extreme piercing and body transformation I am talking about. And I bet every person in that article of yours is white too.

      1. It’s a clear mental illness that needs treatment, but they’re not going to get treatment because we’re not allowed to criticize people who feel things that are insane.

        1. Which is deeply cruel and uncaring when you think about it. Is there anything more subtly evil than actively and encouraging self destructive and insane behavior?

          1. A gunshot on the steps of a court house or a woodchipper out back, would be a mercy to these people.

        2. In the late 1990s, Scottish surgeon Dr. Robert Smith amputated the legs of two patients at their request. While the surgery involved National Health Service staff, each patient paid nearly $6,000 for their procedures.

          That is evil. I thought “do no harm” was part of the Hippocratic Oath?

      2. I am just curious where is the line drawn between acceptance and mental health for the person.

      3. Also, speaking of tattoos…

        In that Jezebel article from last night’s PM links. One of the Jezzie’s asked the author if she would be ok tattooing the author’s daughter’s name on her neck as a sign of support.

        WHAT!?

        1. When the tattoo guy comes across and the sane, reasonable adult, you know you are fucking insane. The guy was absolutely right. No honey I am not giving you a neck tattoo. Grow up and think about it and get a couple of other tattoos in less obvious places and see how you like it and then we can talk. The guy tried to save her from her ignorance and immaturity and of course she hated him for it.

      4. Are we just dispensing altogether with the concept that some people are mentally ill and need treatment?

        1. Honestly. Even in the case of transsexuals, I’d say it is a problem and not an alternative lifestyle like being gay. It’s just that there aren’t a lot of treatment options and living as the other sex seems like the best option to a lot of people.
          I’m all for being accepting and accommodating of transsexual people, but I’m not going to pretend that it is all OK and good that some people want to cut up their genitals and mess with their hormones to feel more normal. If there was some treatment to help people feel OK about the body they are born with, that seems like the much better option.

    2. I wonder how deep the rabbit hole of demoralization can go. Every time a new batch of insanity appears it takes me by surprise.

  33. Climate denialism is the real “hoax”: Why “politically motivated” science is good science

    And not just at home. As climate change unfolds around the globe, climate disasters will give undemocratic forces the justification they seek to commandeer resources, declare martial law, interfere with the market economy, and suspend democratic processes. This means that Americans who care about political freedom shouldn’t hold back when it comes to supporting climate scientists and acting to prevent the threats they have so clearly and fulsomely documented.

    To do otherwise can only increase the chances that authoritarian forms of governance will come out ahead in a future in which our children and grandchildren, including those of the climate deniers, will all be the losers, as will our planet and so many of the other species on it. Recognizing and emphasizing this aspect of the climate equation may offer some hope of enabling more moderate Republicans to step back from the brinkmanship of denial.

    1. So, fight the Authoritarianism by embracing the Authoritarianism. Sure thing, sport.

    2. That is one fine example of everything wrong with the AGW crowd. I have work to do today….dammit….I will come back to that.

    3. Their attachment to “democracy” makes sense. It’s a bullshit pseudo-moralistic ideology lending support to a pseudo-scientific methodology.

    4. This means that Americans who care about political freedom shouldn’t hold back when it comes to supporting climate scientists[.]

      I do. Just not the ones they approve of like Anthony Watts and Judith Curry.

  34. Obama Administration Seeks To Diversify Wealthier Communities Through HUD Provision
    …Some believe though that through the threat of withholding important funds, local communities will be stripped of their zoning powers….

    …In the past, monies for affordable housing have been concentrated in poorer areas, though this rule seeks to shift affordable housing into, “communities that have lots of other good attributes; good schools, good jobs, good transportation, but don’t have any affordable housing or very limited affordable housing,” Goldberg said.

    Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow with the Heritage Foundation, sees this less as a political problem and more of an abuse of federal power, in which Obama’s ideological views on what communities should look like are forced on local jurisdictions….

    1. …Some believe though that through the threat of withholding important funds, local communities will be stripped of their zoning powers….

      This won’t work. Wealthy counties will just do without the funds. They’ll forego whatever funds available if it means building “affordable” housing.

      1. Not true. Wealthier communities tend to be run by politicians who are markedly less successful or sensible than their wealthy neighbors who actually made something of their lives. My own town is very wealthy, one of the wealthiest small towns in Ohio. The state came in and offered a slush fund years ago to build housing projects on the edge of town. Soon the $100 per month rental units started attracting welfare dependents, cripples and lowlifes to flood into our town. The size of our counties welfare budget has exploded along with the number of burglaries and heroin dealers since their arrival and now our town is going to spend our own local tax dollars just to maintain the cancerous tumor the state paid to build here. Fuck ’em.

    2. Then people will flee to places more accommodating to what they want. Or, perhaps, flee to locations where they have more land and fewer neighbors. Leading to decentralization. Which these people don’t want.

  35. At a campaign stop today in South Carolina, Hillary Clinton is expected to unveil a plan calling for tax credits for businesses that hire and train apprentices.

    A plan Newt Gingrich would love.

  36. Rachel Dolezal: “There’s no biological proof Larry and Ruthanne are my parents”

    “There’s no biological proof that Larry and Ruthanne are my biological parents,” she added. A shocked Guthrie replied, “there’s a birth certificate with your name on it and their names on it.”

    “I’m not necessarily saying that I can prove they’re not,” Dolezal said. “But I don’t know that I can actually prove they are. I mean, the birth certificate is issued a month and a half after I’m born ? and certainly there were no medical witnesses to my birth.”

    When contacted by the New York Daily News about this claim, Larry Dolezal could only write “WOW. She was born in our bedroom 11/12/1977 in our house we built here and moved into in June 1977. All the people in Troy and Libby she grew up with KNOW she is our daughter! WOW again!”

    1. Know how crazy she is? Salon commenters are calling her nuts.

      1. That is strong evidence that could be used for involuntary commitment.

    2. This is becoming less and less funny. It’s pretty clear that there’s serious, untreated mental illness here.

    3. I bet they only released the short form birth certificate.

    4. Perhaps she was cloned from the perfect form of a black woman and there was an error in the cloning process.

    5. There’s no biological proof that Larry and Ruthanne are my biological parents

      Gosh, if there was only some kind of scientific test that could confirm parentage . . . .

  37. My comments are being put through the chipper…

    1. Ok, there is part of it…

      His goal was to become disabled.

      People like Jason have been classified as ”transabled” ? feeling like imposters in their bodies, their arms and legs in full working order.

      “We define transability as the desire or the need for a person identified as able-bodied by other people to transform his or her body to obtain a physical impairment,” says Alexandre Baril, a Quebec born academic who will present on “transability” at this week’s Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities at the University of Ottawa.

      “The person could want to become deaf, blind, amputee, paraplegic. It’s a really, really strong desire.”

      1. Yeah, this is going to cause a huge explosion in the progosphere. Trans rights as progs envision them can’t survive the dozens of mental illnesses that will come in their wake demanding the same accommodations.

        1. “I identify as disabled. Who are you to deny that I am? Who are you to not bend over backwards to accommodate my fabricated disabilities?”

      2. The Federalist had a decent piece on this a couple weeks ago. I did a double-take – it’s like a Lon Chaney film…

        http://thefederalist.com/2015/…..nsableism/

  38. Can anyone explain to me the purpose and utility of Reasonable’s History function?

    1. NSA/DOJ/FBI/CIA/ATF/NEA tracking?

      1. That’s why it’s your posts that always seen to end up in my History. I suggest changing your handle to protect your identity. ‘Lord Humungus Woodchipper’ should do the trick.

    2. It makes the arguments last longer, because it’s easier to find them! 🙂

      1. How does one place a comment in the history. They seem to be put there randomly for me.

        1. It’s a setting of Reasonable…

          Click on the top hat Icon on the right side of the address bar. On the right side you will see a list of options. The bottom most item is where you put your name.

          You need to enter it there, particularly now that you changed your handle.

    3. It’s for quickly seeing if anyone replied to you.

  39. According to a new poll out today from Quinnipiac University, Hillary Clinton “is not honest and trustworthy, Florida voters say 51 – 43 percent, Ohio voters say 53 – 40 percent and Pennsylvania voters say 54 – 40 percent.”

    The amount of people who think she is trustworthy is astoundingly high. I know that number reflects a lot of Team Blue social signalling, but how can anyone of any particular set of beliefs actually think she’s trustworthy? I guess the litany of scandals she and her husband have been embroiled in were all fake scandals.

    1. My fiance is a Hillary fan. She doesn’t really pay attention to politics, and assumes that all the complaints about her are merely sour grapes and fake scandals.

      She assumes that Hillary’s involvement in the Federal government for over 20 years makes her an experienced politician well qualified to execute the duties of President.

      Nobody has ever told her otherwise…. except me. 🙂

      1. You should ask her two questions; if you will vote for Hillary, what Democrat wouldn’t you vote for? What would a Democrat have to do to not get your vote?

        And when she can’t come up with an answer, ask her if she thinks the Democrats knowing they will get hers and people like hers’ vote no matter how corrupt and awful they are or what they do is very good for her cause.

        1. Tarran states his squeeze doesn’t pay attention to polotics. When her only cause is social signaling and the feelz, your appeal to principle is ineffective. Only when she has a principle will this argument be effective.

        2. I’m not going to do either John because I don’t care enough to cure her of her affliction.

          She loves me despite my ‘horrible’ political views. She inherited her views from her mom, a progressive of swedish stock from the northern great plains. Voting Democrat is like an article of faith with them.

          It’s like religion; if I were marrying a mormon I wouldn’t try to convince her that Joseph Smith was a con artist.

          She’s a sweet, wonderful woman who is financially very prudent, good to my kids, has integrity up the wazoo, who thinks I am a desirable hunk. I’m not going to have a pointless argument, so that Hillary’s landslide is in the MA general election is slightly less landslidy. 🙂

          Given the rant about federal income taxes I listened to over the weekend, I suspect my main squeeze will ditch the bitch on her own good time anyway. 🙂

          1. tarran has done the math.

          2. It really is a religion. And I can’t blame you for risking your sex life trying to save her. At some point people do wake up. Not everyone wakes up but they wake up in sufficient numbers to put a stop to things. People like your girlfriend are really doing us a favor. They are destroying the Progressive cause. Its destruction will of course do a lot of collateral damage. But they are destroying it. Not every bad trend goes on forever. People do learn, if often only the hard way. Fortunately for us, the Progs haven’t been able to completely take over like they did in Cuba or Venezuela making it impossible for people to do anything after they wake up.

            1. The thing is my girlfriend isn’t a prog at heart.

              Inside her soft exterior beats the cold, mechanical heart of a conservative. She says she is “socially liberal and fiscally conservative,” and then throws pillows at me when I point out that those are called libertarians.

              1. Very few people are. Most people who claim to be are doing so as a way to fit in and get along. These are the wages of the Progs owning the mass culture. No matter how crazy the Progs are and how right conservatives and libertarians are, in many places it takes real balls to be anything but a Prog. And of course the believing Progs are fucking evil and this gives them the advantage. They think nothing of attacking and destroying anyone who disagrees with them. We have morals and principles which they of course use against us.

                1. They think nothing of attacking and destroying anyone who disagrees with them. We have morals and principles which they of course use against us.

                  It is my hope that this will prove their undoing. Most people have a basic sort of ethics that the progs violate routinely. And they are making enemies faster with the unethical behavior than they are making friends (at least in my personal experience).

                  1. They are in a ever closing loop. The problem with running out anyone who disagrees with you is that eventually you start defining who you are by that and run off all your enemies, you have to create new ones. So, eventually everyone becomes an enemy. You can see this on college campuses. They ran off everyone but the hard core liberals and now guess what, formerly right thinking liberal professors have become enemies. The whining by that woman at Northwestern who got investigated or the professor who says he is terrified of his prog students is priceless. It is right out of Darkness at Noon. “I am a good member of the movement. You can’t treat me like some common conservative.” Sorry dude but you are not in the movement anymore. You are no better than a conservative.

                    1. The progressive movement is cannibalizing itself. It’s obsession with building a coalition of afflicted grievance pursuers is going to rip their movement to pieces. Let’s assume the culture war continues, in 30 or 40 years, when being white or heterosexual without contrition is a moral crime in and of itself, how many white heterosexuals will be voting Democrat? Granted their usefulness to coalition will be diminished by then, but still.

          3. So she focuses on her own life and doesn’t give a lot of attention to politics? Sounds healthy except the Democrat part.

            1. The Democrats were the party of Rum, Romanism, & Rebellion, Eddie. I think you of all people would understand those who remained loyal to a party that earned their grandparents’ allegiance during that era.

              1. Wow, that escalated fast.

                Look, my grandpappy was a Republican in part because he thought the Papists were plotting to take over the country.

                1. Oh, and:

                  *

                2. Sorry, I got distracted and forgot to append the “;)”.

                  1. OK, OK.

                    🙂

                    1. No worries. I was going to try to make a joke about the Bourbon Democrats but flamed out.

                    2. Seriously, though, U.S. Catholics have traditionally been Democratic. The surprise isn’t that many remain Democrats to this day, but that the Democrats managed to alienate so many of them.

          4. Very sensible, tarran.

            One thing that would benefit this society enormously is if more people would compartmentalize politics.

      2. I like you tarran so I am going to give you some real, heartfelt advice. It is sound also, born of experience.

        Find another fianc

        1. No… you’re just trying to trick me so you can get her for yourself!

        2. No, just because she’s a Democrat is no reason to dump her.

          If she was a political obsessive it might be a problem, but if she’s just adopting political beliefs as a cognitive shortcut because her energy is focused on other things, then it doesn’t seem like a problem at all.

    2. I know that number reflects a lot of Team Blue social signalling

      Team Blue’s choices are:

      Hillary: Dishonest and untrustworthy
      Sanders: Stupid and ill-informed

      Isn’t that awesome? They get to choose between someone who deludes and someone who is deluded?

  40. I am sick to death of all these motherfucking squirrels on this motherfucking website!!!

  41. Officer fired and arraigned for stealing evidence.


    The former State College police officer accused of taking cocaine and prescription drugs from the department’s evidence room was arraigned in Philipsburg on Tuesday.

    Thomas Dann, 59, of Bellefonte, was released on $50,000 unsecured bail after arraignment before District Judge Allen Sinclair. Court documents indicate that Dann waived a preliminary hearing at the proceedings.

    State police filed charges against Dann on Monday. He faces 23 counts each of two drug charges, 14 counts of evidence tampering and a theft charge. Dann’s employment with the borough ended Friday after almost 27 years on the force.

    Drugs made him do it:

    Stephanie Cooper Robinson, Dann’s attorney, said Dann’s “long and well-respected” career in law enforcement is a reminder that drug addiction can affect people from all walks of life. The alleged evidence tampering and thefts grew out of an addiction Dann developed when he was prescribed painkillers while recovering from a series of surgeries, Cooper Robinson said.

    “He accepts responsibility for that and he is doing his best to make amends and do what he has to do,” she said. “This is an example of how nondiscriminatory addiction can be and how it can strike anyone.”

    I love how his attorney contradicts herself.

    1. Maybe he was trying to do the kids a favor by destroying the evidence against them? If the drugs go missing, they can’t be produced in court and the person charged with having them can’t be convicted.

      Of course he wasn’t doing that and he is just a fucking degenerate. Still, though, that would be a novel way to try and undercut the drug war from the inside.

      1. Of course he wasn’t doing that and he is just a fucking degenerate. Still, though, that would be a novel way to try and undercut the drug war from the inside.

        I agree.

    2. He stole from the State, and more specifically, from the cops.

      Of course they went after him.

      If he had just stolen from the untermenschen, like that kid who had $11K stolen, he’d be a fucking hero.

  42. I’ve been out of the country for a while. Anything interesting I miss?

    Despite almost certainly being on a list due to posting here, Customs didn’t harass me when I came back into the country.

    Due to having a shorter connection than I would like at Atlanta and being very, very hungry, I decided to cave and use the new style porno scanner instead of getting the taxpayer funded grope. The decision had its benefits. I got through security fast enough to get some biscuits and gravy for breakfast and I said exactly zero words to the TSA goons. The TSA goons that I count only said two words to me. I don’t count the TSA goon that was braying and yelling at people about how to get their stuff ready for the X-Ray machine, I would have had to listen to her nonsense whether or not I caved on the porno scanner.

    Foreign airport security is so much more civilized.

    1. You didn’t visit any woodchipper manufacturing facilities while overseas, did you?

      1. No, unfortunately not.

    2. Foreign airport security is so much more civilized.

      Indeed. IIRC, at Schiphol the primary concern seemed to be preventing tourists from taking weed out of Amsterdam. A cursory pass through metal detectors and an interview consisting of a dozen or so rapid-fire questions from a very dapper Dutch security apparatchik and we are on our way.

      1. US-bound flights from Schiphol have their own security which involves a new style-porno scanner, but you get to keep your shoes on (only to have to take them off in the US if you have a connection) and the Dutch are much more polite and efficient than the TSA goons.

        1. At Schiphol I asked them politely not to search my bag because it had sensitive and delicate computer equipment in it and he obliged. Low and behold I didn’t blow up the airplane.

      2. The last time I went through Schiphol, the security apparatchik was a smashing blonde who was apparently the product of some kind of genetic engineering experiment to distill all the best Dutch features into a single, irresistible female.

        I was too distracted to demand a thorough pat-down, unfortunately.

      3. Schipol security was only concerned with my electronic cigarette.

        I had a “box mod” (which are not very common outside of enthusiast circles in Europe) and was asked by the security dude to demonstrate that it was what I said it was. I did so, by fogging out my direct area. Then he called in his supervisor so they could watch me do it again.

  43. Paging SugarFree… or Crusty Juggler:

    EXCLUSIVE: Rachel Dolezal was in a SEX TAPE

    1. That picture of her in a gown hints at some nice tits.

    2. If this isn’t the sound track, it should be.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fmfi3UbDPnQ

    3. Comment:

      “Talk about a poster child for the Democrat Party. If they haven’t already, I’m certain the Democrats will be on her like “white on rice” (sorry – I just couldn’t help myself) to run for the U.S. Senate and before her 1st term is over to run for the Presidency!”

      Man, she must be some kind of crazy in bed.

      1. Not even with Warty’s “penis”.

      2. First mattress girl and now this woman. I guess every Prog cause celbre is going to make a sex tape from now on.

    4. So it appears to me that The Daily Mail has not actually confirmed that this tape exists — they’re just reporting that Ms. Dolezal, who they themselves refer to as a “frizzy-haired faker”, claimed it existed in divorce papers.

      1. So, there’s either a sex tape, or she committed perjury.

        Yeah, no.

        1. “Yeah, no”, what? I’m not sure that perjury would be surprising from her.

    5. No goddammit. Just no.

  44. ‘According to [most anyone who has the least familiarity with that hag] Hillary Clinton “is not honest and trustworthy,’

    I think we’re getting somewhere.

    1. I think we’re getting somewhere.

      I hope we’re not getting to a place with a Team Red president who starts a new war with Iran and jacks up the national debt from $18 Trillion to $28 Trillion.

  45. So, is Hillary even more awful than ever now, or have I just forgotten after not having heard much from her for a while?

    1. I think it’s the latter.

    2. Definitely the latter. She’s most popular when she doesn’t make any public appearances or statements.

    3. She’s been an amoral crook her whole life (cattle futures, anyone?). Its just that now she has much more scope for her innate criminality.

  46. Responding briefly to this morning’s post…

    Together with other encrypted and also-free communications offerings, like TextSecure, Signal, and RedPhone, ProtonMail makes relatively (let’s emphasize that) secure communications accessible to pretty much everybody.

    From the scant details they give ProtonMail seems like it may be better than nothing.

    But TextSecure/Signal/RedPhone and ProtonMail shouldn’t really be mentioned together at this point. The former come from a well-known, accomplished security research (Moxie Marlinspike); the latter comes from, err, idk, some random nerds? I’m sure they’re very smart, but none of them mention any security background.

    And TextSecure in particular (and to an extent Signal, by extension, since it’s based on the same protocol) is not just open source but has been professionally audited; ProtonMail, err, uses some open source libraries and uh, has a bug bounty?

    Oh, and did I mention the “scant details” thing? Maybe they’re hidden somewhere hard-to-find, but ProtonMail’s website does a piss-poor job describing their architecture for users with technical/security knowledge… we’re just left to read between the lines and guess what they probably would do based on the mostly-non-technical descriptions they give.

  47. “According to a new poll out today from Quinnipiac University, Hillary Clinton ‘is not honest and trustworthy, Florida voters say 51 – 43 percent, Ohio voters say 53 – 40 percent and Pennsylvania voters say 54 – 40 percent.'”

    Something tells me that Hillary’s public-speaking skills aren’t going to bolster these numbers in her favor.

    There has to be someone at the DNC hoping that she’ll stroke out between now and Election Day to give the candidacy to someone who can capture most of BHO’s Daily Show vote.

    1. That would be Biden. He’s been laying low so people forget how much of a retard he is

  48. Neil Young is not happy about the fact that his song “Rockin’ in the Free World” was played at Donald Trump’s press conference yesterday.

    Well a southern New York man don’t need him around anyhow.

  49. “California has cut off the water to the upscale town of Mountain House.”

    Something something California government will run out of sand by 2020.

  50. “California has cut off the water to the upscale town of Mountain House.”

    Up there just east of San Francisco?

    Well, I’m not sure what the solution is, exactly, but I know it involves voting for Democrats–because the Republicans are homophobic.

  51. Neil Young is not happy about the fact that his song “Rockin’ in the Free World” was played at Donald Trump’s press conference yesterday.

    However, Neil is ESCATATIC about the increased sales of the song based on the fact that it was used in Donald Trump’s press conference yesterday.

    I’m sure Neil will refute all the sales proceeds of the track from June 16-17, 2015.

  52. I bid reason adieu. Learned a lot here and good luck.

  53. “My wife thinks I’m nuts. I have like 500 gallons of drinking water stored in my home,” he said.

    Dude. The first rule of water wars is you don’t talk about how much water you have hoarded. Can you paint a brighter target on your house, please?

  54. Hillary Clinton is not honest and trustworthy .now more and more voters would’t
    like to support her.
