  1. Troubled pop singer Sinead O’Connor was reported missing and possibly suicidal after failing to return from a bicycle ride in Chicago. She’s since been found.

    So tear up that obituary.

    1. Passed up a duet with Lou Reed!

    2. She tore up that picture to protest sexual abuse within the Church. And everyone thought she was crazy.

      I mean, she is crazy. Just not because of that.

      1. I never understood the flack she and SNL got for that; it’s constantly referred to as some sort of big “blunder” or on lists of worst moments of blah blah blah. She made a strong statement “on the right side of history” as they say. And god forbid something unusual happen on SNL to wake the show out of its safely boring stupor.

        1. Different times

    3. “She’s since been found.”

      Pope: “God damn!”

      1. Those Templar Assasins just aren’t what they used to be

        1. Roger Moore?

          1. Was the best Bond.

            1. But as a Templar he was a Saint.

              1. Yes, I missed the reference. Wasn’t there a remake with Val Kilmer or something?

                1. Wasn’t there a remake with Val Kilmer or something?

                  Let us never speak of this again……

          2. He wasn’t the best Bond, and wasn’t the worst, because he wasn’t even Bond at all, just a wooden joke.

      2. +once was lost
        -now is found

    4. Hello.

      “Hillary Clinton says she’s going to put her husband, former President Bill Clinton, “in charge of revitalizing the economy.”

      The Underclintons. Or The Clintonwoods.

      1. To be fair, having him around again is probably the only halfway decent reason to vote for her.

        1. Um you do remember his triangulation had to do with Newt and losing Congress and not any sort of genuine rejection of statism? Remember HillaryCare and Assault Weapons Ban?

          1. Yes, and he was the last US politician smart enough to recognize when he had a losing hand and actually change course.

            Do you honestly think Hillary won’t have Republican super majorities controlling both houses by her second year in office?

            1. This is an important reason for Republicans to assure that they hold on the House and Senate. If Bill is advising her, she might move to compromise.

            2. First of all if the “Trump is Doom!” then no. Also what do mean by “supermajority”? Enough to avoid cloture or to override vetos and convict impeached officials? That will be a tall order.

              Also I think times have changed. POTUS has a lot more power to ignore Congress, “anti-austerianism” is big which wasn’t the case in the 1990s and the MSM is far more in the tank for Hillary than they were for Bill

          2. And he still managed to get the Brady Bill and the Crime Bill passed, no doubts 2 of the worst pieces of legislation ever signed into law.

      2. Or The Clintonwoods.

        Clinton and wood go together nicely.

      3. “Hillary Clinton says she’s going to put her husband, former President Bill Clinton, “in charge of revitalizing the economy.”

        …one intern at a time…

        1. If Clinton lifts the ban it will be two montecristo’s and one intern at a time.

          1. Two interns, one cigar?

      4. Here’s an idea: cut federal spending by 50 percent, so it’s back to (Bill) Clinton era levels, and watch the economy explode.

        1. Excellent idea. I’ll be sure to use this when talking to my liberal brother.

    5. I’m not surprised people on bike rides through Chicago would wind up missing and/or suicidal. And really, isn’t death preferable to riding a bike through Chicago? It’s not exactly a Saturday in the park, you know.

      1. It’s not exactly a Saturday in the park, you know.

        Booooooooooo

        1. I thought it was the fourth of July.

          1. Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “once in a lifetime”.

        2. Maybe she wanted to Stay the Night.

  2. Hillary Clinton says she’s going to put her husband, former President Bill Clinton, “in charge of revitalizing the economy.”

    Hookers, blow and Pedo Island for everyone!

    1. Even better than a free market!

    2. No, only for those that give the CGI a nice chunk of change. The rest of us get the same shit sandwich the central planners have been trying to jam in our mouths for god knows how long.

      1. OMG, I just realized the initials were the same as those for computer-generated image(ry). Hmmm….

        1. And Common Gateway Interface…

          1. Damn your nimble fingers!

        2. Common Gateway Interface.

        3. Right? And computer generated image basically means fake. It’s like they were trolling this whole time and we were all too stupid to get the joke.

          Too awesome

    3. So how long before our factory seizures begin?

      Hopefully Bill will be kept hip deep in loose women to keep from being tempted to doing any actual work.

      1. When they hear the voice of Mary Hart?

      2. Hillary knows Bill isn’t going to do any actual work. She’s using his name to reassure you she’s not a monster while she does monstrous things without his input.

        1. But I think they both are monsters.

    4. Pedo Island for everyone!

      For most of us, that means we’re working.

      *Starts investing in lube*

      1. Relax, that’s why we have child labor laws. You won’t be required to work after 7 pm.

  3. The Texas pastor who claimed a baker at Whole Foods put an anti-gay slur on his cake with icing, has dropped his suit and apologized after it was revealed as a hoax.

    Seems awful passive voicey.

    1. In a noble gesture of “no hard feelings”, the baker publicly gifted the pastor a cake iced with “Burn In Hell, Lying MF!”

      1. You forgot ‘fag’ since it started the whole ordeal.

        “Burn in Hell, Lying MF Fag!”

        1. +1.

  4. Who called it?

      1. I award you ten million internets.

      2. God damn. What stocks should I buy tomorrow?

        1. Promoted comments.

    1. Vin Scully?

  5. Ha, my prediction was correct. And technically I think I get a first since I referenced the posts.

    1. No formatting. Fail.

      1. But other than that, it was an amazing prediction.

  6. The Texas pastor who claimed a baker at Whole Foods put an anti-gay slur on his cake with icing, has dropped his suit and apologized after it was revealed as a hoax. He said the retailer did nothing wrong. Whole Foods has dropped its countersuit.

    That evil corporation headed by a greedy capitalist should have gone after the pastor’s rear end with vengeance.

    1. Cakes and ass sex, but where are the messicans?

      1. Making the cakes of course.

  7. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro put out an emergency decree ordering the seizure of closed factories and the arrest of their owners.

    Bernie Sanders nods, smiles grimly, and adds another plank to his platform.

  8. Hillary Clinton says she’s going to put her husband, former President Bill Clinton, “in charge of revitalizing the economy.”

    Give that woman a cigar!

    1. [Narrows gaze at Rich]

    2. Give that woman a cigar!

      Slow down, man.

      He’s going to revitalize Cuba’s economy instead.

  9. “”Hillary Clinton says she’s going to put her husband, former President Bill Clinton, “in charge of revitalizing the economy.””

    This job is too hard so I’ll let my husband handle it, the feminist hero explained

    1. feminist hero AND economic moron.

      Her husband had absolutely nothing to do with creating a good economy when he was the President.

      The economic upturn began before he took office in his first term and it ended before he left it in his second.
      He had nothing to do with creating it or sustaining it.

      1. You know how all of those famous bands have failed comebacks? This is going to be the grand finale of failed comebacks. Slick Willy becomes known as Limp Willy.

        1. Willy & the Poor Boys?

          1. Willy and the Hand Jive.

            1. Or is that Hand Job?

            2. Mama done chase
              Willie down through the hall
              But laugh, Willie laugh, he don’t care at all

              ‘Cause little Willie, Willie won’t go home
              But you can’t push Willie round, Willie won’t go
              Try tellin’ everybody but, oh no
              Little Willie, Willie won’t (clap, clap, clap) go home

            3. Willy and the Imp Peach

        2. Willy in his impish way
          Pushed Hillary in the fire one day.
          The public said, “Now, Bill, that’s cruel.
          But truth be told, it does save fuel.”

          Little Willy, a plan he made,
          Tied Hillary to the railroad grade.
          The public said, “That makes us sore –
          The trains don’t run there any more.”

          Little Willy, for a goof,
          Pushed Hillary right off the roof.
          The public said, ” That wasn’t wise –
          You need more height for one that size.”

          1. +1 There was a lawyer from Arkansas . . .

      2. I remember reading a libertarian-oriented article that argued that Clinton should be given minor credit for the 1990s economy. The argument was that some of his advisors (Begala & Carlin) so pissed off most of the Democrat leadership that Congress wouldn’t talk to the White House for the first two year. Voila! Laissez-faire.

        1. George Carlin was a Clinton advisor? I may have misjudged WJC!

        2. History is a magical thing.

          People today look back on Clinton’s Presidency and think it was awesome. It wasn’t. It was splendid in its mediocrity. I even recall an episode on the McLaughlin Group (BYE-BYE) where every single person on the panel – including the left-wing dope – agreed he was average.

          1. Sorry, should have been clearer: I read this around 1998 (?).

    2. bill in charge of revitalizing economy:

      1. Clearly Obama’s economy – so, a too-obvious snide attack on former boss?

      2. Why economy and not women’s issues?

      3. Summary: not strong. Is this a sign of desperation?

    3. Excellent.

      1. Monty is that you?

        1. Hello Smithers, you’re very good at . . . turning me on . . .

  10. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro put out an emergency decree ordering the seizure of closed factories and the arrest of their owners. He has, of course, blamed the United States for the country’s economic collapse.

    All hail the glorious Chavez legacy, long may it continue.

    1. He has, of course, blamed the United States for the country’s economic collapse.

      Yep, we’ve done some government overthrowing in the past, and shouldn’t be proud of it. But in this case it’s hardly necessary. Why shovel fleas into a barnyard?

  11. One of the ladies in The New York Times story on Donald Trump’s treatment of women disputes the story’s characterization of how she was treated and says she didn’t feel demeaned.

    Hush, woman, we’re trying to save you.

    1. The dumb bitch doesn’t know what’s good for her. Typical.

      1. This is the standard reaction. How their heads don’t asplode is beyond me. A facebook friend of mine posted his primary ballot with Trump getting his vote. In the background was a really nice bar with Smith and Wesson barstools. No idea where it was. The text was “In case you were curious or deleting friends who don’t share your opinion”. Stunningly brave. I think that stunt would clear half my contacts.

    2. With all the criminal Clinton shit, the media are focussing on something that happened 25 years ago to her opponent?

      1. The Donald apparently, at a pool party asked her if she wanted to change into a bathing suit and swim. Which she says she didn’t take as offensive, but that the NYT apparently decided to just fill in the ‘offensive’ part.

        Let’s go after the Donald’s private affairs with ex girlfriends and forget all about Hillary’s 10 zillion public scandals. Derp.

        1. He then masturbated into the pool after she jumped in, coming close to violating the “No More Than 10 Swimmers At A Time” sign.

          1. TIL that sometimes I snort when I laugh.

      2. The Donald apparently, at a pool party asked her if she wanted to change into a bathing suit and swim. Which she says she didn’t take as offensive, but that the NYT apparently decided to just fill in the ‘offensive’ part.

        Let’s go after the Donald’s private affairs with ex girlfriends and forget all about Hillary’s 10 zillion public scandals. Derp.

      3. Or what about the fairly recent revelation that Bill Clinton has been racking up frequent flyer miles on Child Rape Airlines?

    3. It is empowering to embrace your victimhood.

      1. Not as empowering as embracing your victim.

  12. One of the ladies in The New York Times story on Donald Trump’s treatment of women disputes the story’s characterization of how she was treated and says she didn’t feel demeaned.

    It’s like left-leaning journalists are trying to get Trump elected.

    1. They’ve been running the same play for so long they don’t even realize that the script has been flipped.

  13. “My husband has some very interesting ideas for revitalizing the economy. Of course, most of those ideas involve dollar bills and hookers, but I’m sure he’ll think of other things, too.”

    1. oops strippers not hookers, apologies to the hookers’ lawyers.

      1. Boner pills might be a good investment right now, too.

        1. Naw, there are cheap generics flooding the market from Indian pharms. We have an oversupply of boner pills. It’s like oil.

          1. But have we reached peak boner?

      2. There is no bigger disdain shown in this world than that of strippers towards those of their coworkers that will fuck for money.

        1. legal immigrants for illegals?

    2. Clinton knows all about stimulation, economic or otherwise.

  14. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro put out an emergency decree ordering the seizure of closed factories and the arrest of their owners. He has, of course, blamed the United States for the country’s economic collapse.

    Yawn. America is everyone’s favorite scapegoat.

    1. +1 Great Satan

  15. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro put out an emergency decree ordering the seizure of closed factories and the arrest of their owners.

    Central planners will not be derailed by reality.

    1. Where’s he going to get the hops for the beer?

      1. The new citizens army are going to grow that on their patios.

      2. They’re just going to go out into the jungle, pick some random plants, and throw them in. Nobody will know the difference anyway.

      3. Everyone knows the evil bourgeoisie capitalists keep hops up their asses.

    2. this is going exactly as George Reisman describes.

  16. New, Wildly-Vague Transgender Mandates Likely to Result in Explosion of Lawsuits = “Just Trying to Help” Says Obama

    Obama, in an interview with BuzzFeed…said schools had been asking the Department of Education how they should handle questions they were facing with transgender youths.

    “We think it was important for schools who want to go ahead and, in a very practical way, try to deal with the school year – What are they going to be doing next year? How should we approach this? – that we give them our best judgment about how to approach it,” Obama said.

    Yes, all of these schools were JUST BEGGING FOR MORE LEADERSHIP from the Federal Government…. not asking, “How can we avoid your constant threats to cut off funding over shit we can’t control, like who calls who “he” or “she”?”

    1. Well, leadership in these cases usually do mean, “Tell us what to do so it is not our responsibility.”

  17. One of the ladies in The New York Times story on Donald Trump’s treatment of women disputes the story’s characterization of how she was treated and says she didn’t feel demeaned.

    Shush, woman, you don’t know how you felt.

  18. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro put out an emergency decree ordering the seizure of closed factories and the arrest of their owners.

    Decree – Anyone who fails in Venezuela’s highly-managed market goes to jail. I’m sure that will fix everything.

    1. Dance that mud into mortar, comrades, and no more straw rations, we ran out of straw!

  19. TSA Lines Causing Frowns? Send in the Clowns!

    Fern Street Circus will be offering performances, rehearsals and workshops in the airport over the next eight months. “They are creating content inspired by the traveler experience, so they will constantly be visible, trying out new ideas and interacting with passengers.”

    What could *possibly* go wrong?

    1. Instead of horses, maybe they should bring in pigs instead…

      1. I thought the pigs were manning the TSA lines.

    2. Everything?

      1. Pretty much.

        Starting with the “entertainment surcharge”.

    3. Adds a whole new meaning to “bread and circuses”.

      1. That will no longer satisfy. I want a cronut with my circus.

    4. Holy crap. I would punch a clown under ordinary circumstances but in an airport…?!

      1. Dude, never mess with a clown. The repressed anguish that motivates someone to become a clown can boil over into cannibalistic rage at any moment.

    5. “Fern Street Circus will be offering performances, rehearsals and workshops in the airport over the next eight months. ”

      Their show will bomb.

    6. This way, EVERYBODY will be creeped out by clowns!

      “Step into the inspection room with Pennywise the Agent”

      “They all float down here!”

  20. Close enough Tonio…

  21. One of these days Maduro will issue the decree that turns Venezuela into the paradise it was always meant to be.

    1. Well, the people of Venezuela are certainly heading towards complete income equality…

  22. “The Texas pastor who claimed a baker at Whole Foods put an anti-gay slur on his cake with icing, has dropped his suit and apologized after it was revealed as a hoax. He said the retailer did nothing wrong. Whole Foods has dropped its countersuit.”

    Protip: before you manufacture your homophobic slur hoax, make sure the target of your hoax is, you know, straight. Your narrative tends to fall apart when it turns out the cake decorator bats for the other team.

    1. In unrelated news, bakeries around the US are introducing cameras to photograph cakes as they leave the bakery.

  23. Brazil’s Widespread Corruption and Epic Mismanagement Less Important than Superficial Race/Gender Diversity, Says Everyone

    Leftists, minorities and many lower-income Brazilians fear that a deep economic recession, and the spending cuts that the new government says are essential to spur a recovery, could mean rolling back progressive policies.

    “The rallying cry right now is the economy and that can become an excuse to scrap anything related to matters of inclusion, equality or culture,” says Esther Solano, a sociologist at the Federal University of S?o Paulo.

    Bullshit Buzzwords Hardest Hit

    1. Soon the Olympics will be in town, and then the REAL failing will begin.

    2. Esther Solano, a sociologist at the Federal University of S?o Paulo

      IOW, let them eat cake.

  24. The Supreme Court has sent a case about the legality of the Obamacare contraception mandate back to a lower court in hopes of reaching some sort of compromise.

    Its dental dam firmly in place, SCOTUS is not swallowing any more Obamacare.

    1. Since every decision will be 4-4, why bother discussing it.

  25. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro put out an emergency decree ordering the seizure of closed factories and the arrest of their owners. He has, of course, blamed the United States for the country’s economic collapse.

    Glenn Greenwald, Justin Raimondo, Lew Rockwell, Eric Margolis, John Pilger and Jacob Hornberger have a sad.

    1. Margolis.

      Oof.

    2. I don’t get it. All of those people except Greenwald (and I’ve never heard of Pilger) are libertarians, aren’t they?

      1. The first five have defended Chavez. Raimondo even attacked Gillespie for what he said when Chavez died. And Hornberger’s articles on Venezuela are all about US hypocrisy and Pinochet…

  26. Hillary Clinton says she’s going to put her husband, former President Bill Clinton, “in charge of revitalizing the economy.”

    To give her more time for the truly important things, like destabilizing Middle Eastern countries, eating out Huma, and refilling her many prescriptions to keep her clinging to life.

    1. Why isn’t “husband” also in quotes?

      1. Because he still self-identifies as husband and gets occasional dibs on Huma.

  27. A Plan to Flood San Francisco With News on Homelessness

    One particularly vocal group of residents, San Francisco’s journalists, say they feel a sense of urgency in addressing the problem. They are banding together in an exasperated, but as yet vaguely defined, attempt to spur the city into action.

    Next month, media organizations in the Bay Area are planning to put aside their rivalries and competitive instincts for a day of coordinated coverage on the homeless crisis in the city. The Chronicle, which is leading the effort, is dispensing with traditional news article formats and will put forward possible solutions to the seemingly intractable plight of around 6,000 people without shelter.

    Representatives from Bay Area television and radio stations, The Chronicle, The San Francisco Examiner, Mother Jones and online publications, among others, met last month to figure out a plan to share resources and content. They agreed to publish their reports on homelessness on June 29.

    “We are all frustrated,” said Jon Steinberg, the editor in chief of San Francisco magazine, which is also taking part. “We are all fed up. We feel there is not enough movement and accountability on the issue.”

    “We want the full force of the Fourth Estate to bear down on this problem,” he added.

    1. I bear down when issuing shit as well.

      1. BLOOP!

      2. + #2

      3. You should stop doing that, it leads to hemorrhoids.

    2. I saw this this picture and thought of you,Crusty.

      It is SFW, but I don’t recommend anyone else click that link.

      1. Must….resist…urge…..

        1. Did it solve the uh… premature…. you know….

      2. There is no way she looks that good.

        1. ^THIS^

        2. My brain is stuck in some kind of infinite regression loop. Must…reset….[punches self into unconsciousness]

      3. What kind of work is that safe for?

        1. Only when you’re self-employed /take it from one who knows.

      4. Crusty already had that one as a screen-saver.

      1. He may spontaneously combust on June 29th.

      2. Yeah.
        Reward what you want, penalize what you don’t.
        If anyone in city government ever figures that out, things will improve drastically. If they don’t Mother Jones can ‘view with alarm’ until the cows get milked and nothing will happen.

    3. Southpark already did it.

    4. And of course they are so interested in the homelessness problem because journalism as a career doesn’t have any job security or pay them enough to actually live in a place like San Francisco

    5. “We want the full force of the Fourth Estate to bear down on this problem,” he added.

      And when you find out that it’s things like high costs to hire workers and high costs to provide rental housing and high costs to provide any kind of housing and a generous welfare system and treating miscreants with kid gloves are the problems causing the homelessness and the crime that goes with it what are you going to do then, leftard?

      1. Maybe some sort of……decree is in order here?

      2. The Fourth Estate doesn’t have force, right? Or is this guy one of those assholes who pushes for journolist licenses.

    6. What is the solution? Round up all 6,000 homeless and drag them kicking and screaming to shelters where guards will keep them there against their will? If so, maybe the Fourth Estaters could offer to do this as a pilot program for the coming Trump Illegals Relocation Program.

      1. There are some great ideas out there, but I don’t think they’d like them.

      2. This. No matter what the delusional press and the commies in SF want you to believe, those 6,000 homeless would have to be dragged kicking and screaming, even into a nice pre-paid apartment. I’ve been seeing this population for years in Bay Area ERs. The great majority of the homeless are seriously mentally ill and don’t want to take their meds or would prefer to drink or shoot up, and they can’t stay anywhere where there are rules, or they get kicked out. Others like being able to drink all night, smoke cigarettes (they’re about the only people in SF permitted to do so), use drugs, spend their check on dope and hookers, and panhandle when they want a new bottle of cheap vodka.

        SF spends about $150 million per year on the ‘homeless problem’ despite these newspaper twits claiming the problem is ignored. That’s about $25K per homeless person. Most of that money is spent on social workers and other ‘professionals’ who are out there ‘trying to connect the homeless to services’ — services that the homeless have no interest in.

        Want to really end homelessness? Give them a part of Golden Gate Park and some tents, fence it off, and leave them alone. Send in the social workers and some clean-up crews every once in awhile, and let them have the ability to get in line to get hot meals twice a day. And don’t try to prevent them from buying booze and cigarettes.

        Not only will the 6,000 be off the streets, people will come from out of town just to stay in that park.

    7. Why can’t they just flood the city with water?

      Oh wait, those hills.

      1. Too late for Lex Luthor to nuke the San Andreas fault?

  28. former President Bill Clinton, “in charge of revitalizing the economy.”

    That’s one End Run around the 22nd Amendment…

  29. “”I want to apologize to Whole Foods and its team members for questioning the company’s commitment to its values, and especially the baker associate who I understand was put in a terrible position because of my actions,” Brown said in his statement Monday.

    “Brown continued, “I apologize to the LGBT community for diverting attention from real issues. I also want to apologize to my partner, my family, my church family, and my attorney.””

    Give him anti-lying training and reassign him to a new parish.

    Too soon?

  30. I can’t believe we’re still talking about Bill Clinton after all these years.

    He’s so…1990s.

    1. Why can’t everyone just “move on”?

      1. “Don’t, stop, thinkin’ about yesterday!”

        1. “Smell my finger!”

          1. “Pull my finger!”

  31. An interesting graph from the latest issue of Lapham’s Quarterly,, the theme of which is disaster, titled Survival of the Fittest: Six mass extinctions.

    1. Permian is most interesting, IMHO.

      There are many theories about what the eruptions that created the Siberian Traps would do to the planet. Nobody really knows yet.

      1. I do find the whole subject interesting. How life has survived on this planet at all is surprising.

    2. Massive eruptions, asteroid/comet impacts, global glaciation. We get lousy logging and SUVs for our ‘6th extinction’. Worst. Extinction. Ever.

    3. Are there more craters in the Northern Hemisphere due to the areas being more well explored, just more land, or some other reason?

      1. Something like 2/3 of earth’s landmass is north of the equator. So more land, better explored, less weathering over time.

        Alternative explanations include: target practice using n. pole as a bullseye, and Zod is an angry SJW who hates the Imperial North.

    1. ……the comments are full of the derp.

    2. Was the guard yelling “STOP RESISTING!”?

    3. Hey dumb ass wholesfood takes ebt…

    4. Whole Foods has permanently banned one security firm and replaced it with another after a guard in Oakland allegedly beat a man bloody and unconscious.

      Don’t you wish it could work like this for cops?

  32. So usually I try to keep a sarcastic but playful tone when it comes to CBC articles. But today’s piece, The hacking of tall poppy Sophie Gr?goire Trudeau contains this vile sentence:

    But here’s the thing: She does it for free. She could just as easily say, “Yeah, OK, listen, no. I’m off to teach a yoga class and play with my kids.”

    She could, as Aline Chr?tien did and Olive Diefenbaker before that, remain quietly in the background. It’d sure be a lot less work.

    But she doesn’t, and all she’s asking is for an extra staffer or two to cope with the sheer volume of supplicants ? who, let’s not forget, are Canadian taxpayers with expectations.

    Fuck you. She’s not a god. She’s not a queen. She’s a woman perfectly matched with PM Zoolander, a woman whose entitlement knows no bounds, and who thinks her hobbies (and they are hobbies) are a matter of state and should thus be subsidised by it. Get fucked, Neil MacDonald, and get fucked you piece of garbage ideologically-driven collection of Right-Thinking pricks.

    For Americans, there is a lovely caption that sums the whole lot:

    Michelle Obama called Sophie Gr?goire Trudeau a ‘soulmate.’ (AP Photo/Cliff Owen)

    1. So when the PM’s wife (sexist! ciscist!) become a political office? Also is that a very…American attitude?

    2. What the hell is a tall poppy? Is that some kind of Canadian expression?

      1. Yes. I guess, “crabs in a bucket” is another way to say it?

        [Periander] had sent a herald to Thrasybulus and inquired in what way he would best and most safely govern his city. Thrasybulus led the man who had come from Periander outside the town, and entered into a sown field. As he walked through the wheat, continually asking why the messenger had come to him from Cypselus, he kept cutting off all the tallest ears of wheat which he could see, and throwing them away, until he had destroyed the best and richest part of the crop. Then, after passing through the place and speaking no word of counsel, he sent the herald away. When the herald returned to Cypselus, Periander desired to hear what counsel he brought, but the man said that Thrasybulus had given him none. The herald added that it was a strange man to whom he had been sent, a madman and a destroyer of his own possessions, telling Periander what he had seen Thrasybulus do. Periander, however, understood what had been done, and perceived that Thrasybulus had counselled him to slay those of his townsmen who were outstanding in influence or ability; with that he began to deal with his citizens in an evil manner.

        1. I’ve heard one theory is that since the Non-American Anglosphere don’t put as much emphasis on personal success as American do (or did?) and they regard having succeeded as an “American” (or even American imperialist) thing then this attitude is quite prevalent in those countries

      2. What the hell is a tall poppy? Is that some kind of Canadian expression?

        More like a Commonwealth expression.

        1. Yep. Very much part of life growing up in Oz.

    3. If it means more of this then I say HELL NO!

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

    4. They, uh, they actually came out and said “supplicants,” huh? Damn. Usually they’re better about keeping the mask on.

      Michelle Obama called Sophie Gr?goire Trudeau a ‘soulmate.’

      *quakes with inchoate rage*

      1. Just read the whole thing. Then remember, this is what Bernie bros want to be the dominant form of media in the US.

    5. She has power by proximity and she can’t help that. I’m sympathetic to the idea she’s going to get criticized no matter what she does, but the “tall poppy” thing is baffling. Canadians love it when one of them is big and especially when known in the US (excepting one very prominent figure, shh). And it’s great she’s doing things for free, I guess. She can command her own time. She just can’t command anyone else’s. it’s not that hard to understand. And if it’s hard, get more volunteers. But stuff like that just never crosses a politician’s mind. Unless it’s mandatory volunteering.

  33. You cannot refuse when the President asks you to be Economy Czar.

    1. “I serve at the pleasure of the President. Actually, come to think of it — I don’t!”

    2. Galt did, but he wasnt real.

  34. Venezuela has a 2 day work week for government employees

    1. And those 2 days are spent doing what?

      Drinking tea and chatting if you’re an Indian bureaucrat.

      Wonder what the Venezuelans do.

      1. Complain about the evils of capitalism.

    2. So do we, but for some reason, our government employees take 3 of their days off in the office.

      1. for some reason

        For the economic stimulus…

  35. The Fight Over Privacy and Secrecy in Government Investigations

    The legislation has drawn significant criticism from the three commissioners of the Securities and Exchange Commission, who sent a letter to Senator Grassley explaining the potential impact on its investigations. Unlike federal prosecutors, the S.E.C. does not have the authority to obtain a search warrant, so it would be unable to compel the production of any electronic records held by an Internet service provider if the law passes unchanged.

    1. Corporations have constitutional rights, but it may be difficult for Microsoft to show that it has an unfettered right to inform customers about a government inquiry that involves their information when that could present a danger to public safety or jeopardize an investigation. The lawsuit appears to be intended more to highlight how the growth of secrecy orders presents a threat to customer privacy, especially if they become almost a matter of routine.

      That issue arose last week when Magistrate Judge James Orenstein of the United States District Court in Brooklyn issued an opinion denying Justice Department requests in 15 cases, two involving Facebook, for orders prohibiting disclosure of subpoenas for customer electronic records.

      The judge found that prosecutors asserted that disclosure would jeopardize the investigation without any evidence showing why, especially when at least one subpoena was directed to a potential victim and not a target of the case. “The boilerplate assertions set forth in the government’s applications do not make such a showing,” he wrote, while affording prosecutors a right to renew the requests if there were additional facts supplied to support imposing a secrecy order.

  36. “STOP (*&@#$^ TRYING TO ‘HELP’ YOU BLOODY RETARDS“”: Yellowstone Park To Tourists Who Don’t Understand Nature

    Reminiscent of this recent Tweet by King of the Retards

    1. Piers Morgan has been dethroned?

    2. “touching off a string of events that led to the animal’s death.”

      That’s an odd way of saying that the Park Rangers killed it.

      1. Park Rangers are sort of like cops, i guess. “Cars and people were approached, so euthanasia occurred to the animal.”

    3. Last time I was there, a bison rushed some idiot’s car. The bison were crossing the road and this dumbfuck was trying to get up on one for a pic or something.

      The dents were impressive.

      1. They weigh… what, about as much as a Miata? 1500lbs, and all muscle.

        1. to paraphrase Ed Tom Bell, that’s 1500 pounds of very pissed off livestock.

        2. Yeah, they can go over a ton. Pretty chill…until they aren’t.

          I take way too much pleasure in the stories of tourists getting fucked up by wild animals. It’s like their whole world is a petting zoo.

        3. And can be mean as hell.

          Supposedly, 5X as many people are killed by bison as bears at Yellowstone.

        4. They weigh… what, about as much as a Miata? 1500lbs, and all muscle.

          Well, except that a Miata has no muscle… (I can say that, I’ve an owner and love it. But let’s face it, I could call it underpowered but it would need a more powerful engine just to get up to that.)

      2. And the lesson is that if you’re going to mess with a bison, make sure your vehicle is a Sherman tank.

    4. That tweet is one of the dumbest things I’ve seen in the last hour.

  37. Nothing is more laughable than the attempts to gin up outrage about Donald Trump’s treatment of women when his opponent will be Hillary Clinton. There are a million excellent things to kick Trump around for, but they choose THAT? I’m sure the coverage of Bill’s alleged sexual assaults, and Hillary’s decades of enabling and covering up those assaults, is right on the heels of this story. Any day now.

    1. The 2016 election, summarized:

      Hillary: “You’re a sexist pig. It’s time for a woman to be in the Oval Office.”

      Trump: “You enabled a sexist pig. And there’s already been a woman in the Oval Office. There’s a blue dress with stains to prove that.”

      1. The debates will be awesome. Especially the one where H gets perp-walked off the stage.

      2. Monica for keynote speaker in the Cleve.

        1. She’s already doing some anti-Clinton ads.

    2. Hillary did not only enable Bill and cover up his affairs. She actively participated in destroying the lives of his victims.

      The very fact that Hillary and staff coined the term “bimbo eruption” demonstrates the routine and scandalous nature of Bill’s dalliances. And some of them would, no doubt, be properly classified as sexual assaults.

      Before Trump’s run for the GOP nomination, he met with Bill. I wonder whether the two worked out an agreement that their frequent trips to Epstein’s pedophilia island would be off limits during the campaign. Neither side has cast a stone at the other for their opponent’s connections with Epstein and visits to his pedophile pleasure palace.

  38. “Hillary Clinton says she’s going to put her husband, former President Bill Clinton, “in charge of revitalizing the economy.””

    So all the good-looking women will do fine and he’ll fire that hag, right?

    1. “Look what Trump made me do!”

    2. Niiice. And we’re going to be seeing much more of that in the coming weeks.

    3. Most surprising:
      There are actually Hillary supporters.

    4. There’s probably some downside for the rest of us if there were to be a massive outbreak of vicious and bloody prog-on-prog violence but dammed if I can think of it.

    1. I did. Last night. I got in trouble.

      1. …I presume that’s a euphemism. or is that what you call your more-eccentric shaving habits?

        I have bearded for long time. I have never stached.

        1. I had a 2 week beard. I was giving the kids a bath in the big tub and letting them play around. I shaved while trying to keep an eye on them (no mirror), and finished about 90% of the job. Then my wife came home and saw me.

          Yep, it was totally a Hitler mustache. That stuff doesn’t go over well with her side of the family.

          1. har har.

            That’s not that bad. I used to shave my head with clippers, and i’d do the whole gourd on one setting.

            One morning i was more bleary and rushed than usual while giving it the weekly trim. About halfway through the day someone rubbed my head and giggled. Apparently i’d missed a long, narrow stripe of hair along the back/top of my head, and so i was walking around looking like I’d lost a bet all day without knowing it.

          2. They are more of a von Papen crowd?

  39. The Rangers and Blue Jays are a good reason to watch baseball.

    Love that shit.

    1. Joey Bats getting decked is the most richly satisfying thing to happen in baseball in some time.

      1. I’m so old, I remember when our media used to claim that exuberant celebrations and bat flips were an integral part of Latino baseball culture.

        Yeah, maybe not really quite so much, given that even his fellow Latinos think he’s a total prick.

        1. Odur is clown. He punched and ran away.

          Let’s not put this all on Bautista. Jesus, people are ridiculous about the bat flip. Big shit.

          Everyone did their jobs.

          1. Watch it again. He punched Bautista and Beltre drug Bautista away from him before he could get a second swing in. Odor was about to go all MMA on his ass.

      2. I would not fight Adrian Beltre.

    2. That was my favorite baseball fight since Nolan Ryan vs Robin Ventura.

      1. Pedro Martinez vs Don Zimmer

        1. The best is still Padres-Braves 1984

  40. OT/halp me
    Thinking of a total change in career. I want to start programming, not sure if front end or back end would be my thing. I also live with a programmer.
    Where should I start? Any help in ideas or any direction would be great.

    1. Is she hot?

      Sorry, I’m having trouble focusing.

      1. You gotta stop hanging around crusty, your taste has… changed.

        1. What are your strengths?

          If you’re “bilingual”, i.e. speak nerd and non-nerd, front end can be more lucrative.

          1. I do pretty well with non nerds. I’m slightly more introverted than I might like.

            1. I have people skills, dammit!

      2. It sounds like both front end and back end are good, so she must be decent.

        1. You’ll be here all week?

    2. Have you asked the programmer you live with?

        1. She’s not hot.

          Then you obviously need another drink.

      1. Hes got me starting on javascript tonight. Asked me a bunch of questions that seemed nonsensical but really was his test if I would like functional or objective more. He uses clojure at work.

        1. Odd choice to start with a web-based language. Odder to learn JavaScript before HTML.

          1. Personally, I’d start with FORTRAN.

            /runs back to the ’80s

          2. Apparently with node, it’s now back end?
            I don’t know what I’m talking about. Yet.

        2. his test if I would like functional or objective more

          Irrelevant. Learning a programming language is the wrong way to do it, and it’s why there are so many shit programmers out there. It should be your goal to learn the logic behind programming and what the computer is doing behind the scenes. That’s what makes a good programmer.

          I learned on procedural languages, and it took me a month to pick up functional languages and a couple weeks to pick up object-oriented. That’s because I was taught the concepts before learning the languages.

          If I were you, I’d start with something like this. When I felt comfortable with the memory management and logic behind the basics of C, then I’d do something like this. Once you get proficient at a modern language like Python (which is a natural progression from C), then you can start branching out into Javascript (which is easy to learn once you’ve mastered C and Python). From there, you can quickly pick up HTML, CSS, and start going into advanced web development.

          Trust me when I say this. You will do yourself a massive disservice by becoming a “web developer.” Teach yourself to be a computer programmer, and then apply your knowledge to web development. You’ll be indispensable.

          1. Thank you trash lord

    3. I’d try TV. Movies and live theater are all about connections.

      1. I live near a major movie studio and do occasional work for some of the tenants there. The place is loaded with assholes. On the plus side, they have no idea what anything costs in the real world.

    4. Start with the basics. Install Eclipse or some other free IDE that supports it and teach yourself C++. There’s a significant part of the population that can’t cope with pointers, so if you’re one of them, then it benefits you to find out quickly and find another career to change to.

      1. Good to know. Thanks.

        1. The Khan Academy, not surprisingly, has good resources. And Udacity has a lot of great shit, and MIT and Harvard and a bunch of other universities have free online CS courses. If you get a good handle on coding fundamentals and have a basic understanding of algorithmic basics and computational theory, you’ll be valuable.

      2. Get a load of this old fart.

        1. THE FUNDAMENTALS ARE IMPORTANT

          Oh fuck, I am old.

      3. If I can make a suggestion: look into Qt. It’s an application framework built on top of C++ that rounds off some of the rough edges and makes things that are a real pain in pure C++ (like GUIs) much easier.

        Plus they have nice download bundles that include the compiler, tool chain, debugger, IDE, etc. all in one simple package.

        1. That’s great, thank you stormy

    5. Another aspect that you may not have considered is physical computing stuff. Grab an Arduino and check out some of the fun you can have when programming meets the real world.

      1. I’ve thought a lot about that. We used one at our last apartment to make a doorbell that pinged our phones.

    6. “not sure if front end or back end would be my thing”

      Don’t focus on either, remain broad in skills, more job opportunities that way.

      And you’ll likely have to work on both anyway.

      1. Very true. It’s too early to tell, my roommate just wanted to know a direction to start in. It’s a big thing to get into

    7. If you’re really keen, you could go through The C programming language in a couple of months.

      1. I should’ve kept reading down to here. Learning C is important. It’s a lot like learning proper form before loading up the barbell and doing a ton of squats. You need to develop an intuitive and intellectual sense for what the computer is supposed to be doing. Otherwise, you end up writing shit code that is fragile and a pain in the ass to debug.

  41. Hillary Clinton says she’s going to put her husband, former President Bill Clinton, “in charge of revitalizing the economy.”

    Why stop at appointing your friends to unelected offices? Why not just go full on incest here? Hillary days are going to be so good again, endless scandals, never a dull moment.

    1. I want her to make me the Duke of Pennsylvania.

      1. For enough money, I’m sure it can be done. Well, you might have to service her also if Huma loses her strap on.

  42. Expression, “I wouldn’t fuck you with a dead-man’s dickTakes on New Life

    1. With surgical advancement, that expression is going to go limp.

    2. He got his dick blown off????

      The army definitely doesn’t tell you about that when you sign up.

      1. +1 Sun Also Rises

      2. would you like to know more?

    3. Well, I was wondering how you go about getting a donor for this procedure.

      I’m not sure if it would be cool or not to have a cadaver’s dick. Probably most women would be completely grossed out. The ones who aren’t, though, are probably pretty freaky.

    4. I can’t be the only one wondering if the donor was the same race…

    5. Dr. Dicken Ko, director of Massachusetts General Hospital’s urology program, shakes hands with

      Of course the director of urology is Dr. Dicken.

      1. I think he’s married to an OB-Gyn physician, maiden name Dr. Renee Sider, who took his name in marriage and is now known as Dr. Dicken-Sider.

  43. A bit of a stretch, but who knows what’s going to happen:

    The FBI may be looking at a violation of the Constitution in their Hillary investigation

    Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution forbids office holders from accepting anything of value from a foreign state, yet husband Bill Clinton collected $1 million from the Abu Dhabi government while Hillary was secretary of state.

    Bill Clinton spoke at the Abu Dhabi Global Environmental Data Initiative (AGEDI) on December 13, 2011 and received a speaking fee of $500,000. The AGEDI is a program funded by the Abu Dhabi government, so the source of the funds was the government itself. Although the fee was paid to Bill, Hillary equally benefited from the payment. In effect, she accepted money from a foreign state.

    1. I don’t see how that’s a stretch. If it’s okay for your spouse to take money from a foreign government, then you can get around that section by just having them cut the check to your wife.

      1. Although the fee was paid to Bill, Hillary equally benefited from the payment.

        This is the line which makes me wonder. I don’t know how anything about non-profit structuring, but she “owns” a stake in the Clinton Foundation, that would mean money coming to her.

        But if a check was cut to Bill alone, and let’s say they file taxes separately, would that let her off the hook? (There is a serious conflict of interest.)

        The CPAs and tax lawyers here would know better.

        1. If they file jointly, or, if they have a joint account, there’s no legal difference. A check to him is a check to her.

      2. “I don’t see how that’s a stretch.”

        It’s not a stretch to see she’s dirty as the NJ mafia, it’s just a stretch to think anyone in the fed gov’t will touch her.

    2. *Something* is bound to stick, right? RIGHT?!

    3. Phaque Skhanduhl!

    4. It strikes me as something they might go for if they’re trying to scuttle the “real” investigation re: the Server.

      They’d go for some lesser accusation which Clinton could fob off as ‘a mistake’, but not willful evasion of Federal Rules.

    5. The country operates under marital property. IE if Bill received the money, Hillary did to.

  44. Hillary Clinton assures voters she’ll be a mere proxy for Handy Bill.

    This may yet be the one strategy that will work in her favor!

    1. This may yet be the one strategy that will work in her favor!

      Maybe. I think its better than trying to ‘sell herself’. But it seems a pretty pathetic move so early in the race.

  45. My cat died this morning. He had heart failure and had been sick for the past few weeks and stopped eating last week and syringing food wasn’t really helping. This morning when I woke up I realized he was close to the end. I spent 10 minutes petting him and telling him he could go and he let out a few soft meows, a long yelp and then he was gone.

    One second he’s just a small kitten licking your face while you try to sleep, you blink, and 13 years later he’s gone. :[

    I kept hoping that cat cloning would become cheap and affordable before this happened. His cat model would have sold well. Was never afraid of anything or anyone, not even the vacuum.

    1. I’m sorry to hear, and glad you spent the last bit of time making him calm and happy.

    2. Ah, shit. Really sorry, K. Losing a pet is absurdly painful, especially a great one.

    3. My dog of similar age died recently too. She was a sweetheart.

      So I’m right here with you. I’m sorry. 🙁

    4. Sorry to hear that.

      Fun fact – a cloned cat would not necessarily have the same markings as the original organism – apparently they learned that by accident in early cat-cloning experiments. Gestational hormones, I believe.

      1. Yeah I’ve read the same thing. I’d accept a clone even without the raccoon colored markings (he had a dark pointed face and a white striped tail) if he had the same easy-going personality.

    5. Was never afraid of anything or anyone, not even the vacuum.

      Sorry to hear that. 13 is still more or less a full-life for a cat. 17 is “old”. 20 is “ancient”.

      the vacuum line still made me laugh. I imagined a cosseted priest giving the eulogy.

      1. He was always healthy his entire life right up until the CHF and I think I had just assumed he was going to be one of those ones who made it to ancient status. Instead, it’ll probably be my other cat, sir-pukes-alot, who lives forever.

        1. my family had an ancient cat who lived to ~20. (no one is sure how old it was; it was an outdoor animal that just ‘showed up’ and never left our sphere of influence).

          It also breathed its last breath in the presence of the family. Everyone considers it one of the more dramatic events of our collective lives.

          The cat announced its impending demise with a short wail that was probably a cat-version of a Shakespearean soliloquy … and then rolled over and stuck its legs in the air like they do in the cartoons.

          Finis.

          1. The cat announced its impending demise with a short wail that was probably a cat-version of a Shakespearean soliloquy … and then rolled over and stuck its legs in the air like they do in the cartoons.

            I laughed — thank you for that.

    6. Much condolences, that is always brutal. You just love them as long and as hard as you can. In his memory, maybe consider adopting one that needs a home.

      1. It might be a while before I’m ready for another cat. I still have another geriatric cat at home (he is 14) who is very intelligent, and both evil and the sweetest cat. He chews through all my charging cables, is always hungry (eats any leaf he can find and immediately throws it up), walks all over me every morning demanding to be fed (purring, head buts, sits on my back), has the loudest and most annoying meow, but he also always wants to be in your lap and will spoon with you like no other cat does. I love him a lot… but I would not choose him for cloning.

    7. My condolences.

    8. Sorry to hear that.

    9. Condolences, Krabapple.

    10. Condolences, K. We’ve got two that are 16 and 17 and won’t last much longer.

      Knowing you’ll have to let them go isn’t the same as facing it when the time comes.

    11. this is terrible and you have my condolences.

  46. A great Sinead O’Connor song is her performance of The Foggy dew she did with The Cheiftan’s, which is both wonderful song about the Easter Rising, and stupid Conor McGregor’s entrance music.

    1. It’s the only song I know that involves O’Connor. Love it.

    1. EU: walls for me, but not for thee.

  47. Twitter to stop counting photos and links in 140-character limit

    Twitter Inc. will soon stop counting photos and links in their 140-character limit for tweets, according to a person familiar with the matter.
    The change could happen in the next two weeks, said the person who asked not to be named because the decision isn’t yet public. Links currently take up 23 characters, even after Twitter automatically shortens them. The company declined to comment.

    It’s about time.

    1. LOUSY BUSINESS MODEL SAVED!!!

  48. Social signaling and TEAM could make sports team unable to attend Nationals in North Carolina

    A little more than a week ago, the Hudson Valley Community College men’s baseball team got some tough news.

    Players and coaches were told by school officials that should they qualify for the nationals in North Carolina, they won’t be permitted to go, as the college is restricting non-essential travel to the state under Gov. Cuomo’s executive order.

    According to a spokesperson from Cuomo’s office, the ban does not pertain to community colleges as they are not considered state entities.

    But the college is choosing to abide regardless, saying quote: :We’re standing with Governor Cuomo and with New York’s many state agencies, departments and commissions that are doing the same.”

    1. Idiots. I hope they lose all their games.

    2. That’ll show those yokels in NC!!

    3. something something Commerce Clause something something

    4. Community college baseball players missing out on a large showcase for college and professional scouts is small price to pay for Andrew Cuomo’s signaling. Bravo, Andrew!

  49. I’m sure it’s already been mentioned, but Bernie Sanders wants to do for America what his wife did for Burlington College – bury it under massive, crippling debt.

    1. What is this “HeatStreet” thing?

      DowJones Co.’s righter-wing version of Buzzfeed?

      1. WCAX is the local news, they have a story up without the Sanders connection.

        1. I think you misunderstood my question.

          Dont worry, i found the answer =
          Heat Street, launched on Monday, aims to “break news, move the media and mock the mainstream

          Fresh off his honeymoon with his blushing bride, Rupert Murdoch has a new baby: the right-of-center libertarian news site Heat Street, which launched Monday.

          “Heat Street is not a safe space. For us, orthodoxy will be unorthodox. The pomposity of self-regarding, self-conscious, self-abusing journalists will be absent from our pages. We plan to break news, move the media and mock the mainstream,” Louise Mensch and Noah Kotch, the site’s leaders, wrote in a statement. “It takes friction to generate heat. We will rub against the grain of convention.”

          Earlier this year, News Corp.’s recently formed Dow Jones Media Group confirmed that Heat Street was staffing up, and would be led by Kotch, a veteran television producer, and Mensch, a former Conservative Party M.P. in the U.K.

          I presume the site is too “culturally libertarian” to have been worth mentioning in the pages of Reason?

          As i noted above = my impression is that its more of a right-wing Buzzfeed. So, maybe its too-shallow for Reason-editors to consider… or maybe they see it as nascent competition? who knows. Be curious to see what the consensus view is.

          1. I’ll look into it better than TLR?

  53. Shane Black On ‘The Nice Guys,’ Mel Gibson, And Why A Female ‘Iron Man 3’ Villain’s Gender Changed

    1. Really looking forward to The Nice Guys. Part of me fears it will lose steam halfway through.

    2. Geez he’s got a big pussy

  54. Oh, I got distracted by all the comments and forgot why I even got in here. THE ALT TEXT. Boy, would that be nice. the fact it’s so funny means it’ll never happen, so Clintons in the WH would be yet another step backwards for women!

    I’m a libertarian in part because I was a very feminist little teenager in the late 90’s and couldn’t ever support either one of the major parties after how they used already victimized women as political fodder.

  55. Surrendering to Death

    Interesting interview with Jesse Hughes about Bataclan.

    Jesse Hughes: I saw fear fall like a blanket on the whole crowd and they fell like wheat in the wind?the way you would before a god. I was totally alert from the very beginning. The first thing I needed to do was find my girl. Fear took a backseat and “where’s my girl?” took over. I could smell gunpowder in the backstage area and I knew someone fired a round back there. I saw a guy with an FAL and when he turned to face me his eyes looked like marbles. He was stoned out of his mind, and we now know they were on Xanax and cocaine. I recognized him. I’d seen him earlier in the day and noticed him staring at us.

    Good stuff.

    1. I had pieces of teeth and human bone pulled out of my face. A girl got shot right next to me by the shooter at the top of the stairs who I had met earlier. She stepped one step in front of me and her head just exploded. It blew pieces of her teeth and skull into my face.

      Fuck.
