Any combination of Cruz/Trump/Carson would be unbeatable. At least a mandate if not a landslide, if the latter is even possible any more.

3 Black Live Matter!

Baltimore is close to 300 dead, celebrations are planned for this occasion?


It is the 288th homicide this year, putting the city well on pace to reach 300 homicides for the first time since the 1990s.
Two other people were shot in Northwest Baltimore later Wednesday night, police said.

26 I was thinking about Bevin and KYnect the obamacare of Kentucky last night and his promise to dismantle it if he won. At first I was thinking that nothing was going to happen because he had to go through the House and that is heavily Dem and will never go for anything he proposes, but then I remembered that in setting up obamacare here the previous Governor did it without a law being written by the House, he just set aside some unused money and instituted a "fee" on insurance companies, took the Federal money and presto! he had Obamacare for Kentucky.

There is no law to overturn or de-funding bill to get through a hostile State House, if the old Governor could wave his magic wand and create ocare, then the new Governor can unwave that same wand and poof!

Now I know why this mornings Lexington paper has "Bevin is going to kill people by taking away their health care" stories all over the front page.

.That's because the pollsters are lazy and incompetent, they had the same errors with Grimes and McConnell, they were off 14 points then.

They continually only sample people in Louisville and Lexington which are heavily Democrat and they very rarely go out into the rural parts of Kentucky which is overwhelmingly Republican and has enough votes to counter both of those Cities.

38 Mayor Parker's rage at having her Houston Equal Rights Ordinance bitch slapped by the voters is truly a joy to see. She claims that the opposition waged a dirty campaign full of lies. No, all the lies - as they almost always are - were on the progressive side. It wasn't the opposition ads that caused 61% of Houstonians to vote against you - it was the fact that this is Texas, and most people here are just not bat shit crazy.

The only downside of the election is that the terms of office got expanded by a diabolically worded proposition that tricked enough people into voting for it by pretending to institute term limits (which already existed). They got the terms expanded from 2 each three year terms to 2 each 4 year terms. So 8 years for each horrible mayor to do damage instead of 6.

Sullivan was never a conservative. Just temporarily butt-struck by Bush's response to 9/11.

Milo's a different cat entirely.

Could he spin on a dime and be just another jack-booted, left turn twerker? Sure. But why? It's no growth industry to Vox haul it along.


That isn't how I recall it - Sullivan was a kind of Charles Cooke type, a Brit conservative. He was conservative before 9/11. Again, as I recall it, he went total fascist over the Bush campaign in 2004 taking up same sex marriage - as in against it.

IMO, the way Congress handled the Nukes For Iran debacle is, all by itself, reason to banish everyone involved from holding public office. Forever.

I'm not asking for perfection, or Total Ideological Purity. I'm not holding Cruzer to a higher standard than I would anyone who wants my electoral support. I'm simply expecting whoever I vote for -- and, maybe, give time/money to -- to advocate unceasingly for America.

1. Length of time current party in power has held office. Advantage, Republicans.
2. Economic growth in quarters prior to election. Unless 0bama can get the economy cooking along at better than 3% in the coming year, advantage Republicans.

Considering 0bama never hit 3% in seven years- that I can recall -- things look exceptionally encouraging.

87 []I cannot dispute the facts on those troubling votes and missed votes. That said, I don't necessarily think they disqualify him, for me anyway. No one is going to be absolutely perfect on every issue for every person. But I think he has the least warts and most qualifications of the pack.


This, plus the fact that there are some of us who consider illegal and legal immigration to be two separate issues, and aren't all that concerned about legal immigrants. So Cruz's position on the matter doesn't bother me a whit.

The Corker Amendment; I know this goes against the orthodoxy of the blog, but I am not convinced that it was the betrayal that so many here . The Iran deal was going to happen regardless of what the Senate did, if for no other reason than it involved a bunch of European countries as well as the US, plus the legal background to the original sanctions was murky enough that Obama and company would have been able to wiggle around any vote against ratification of the not-technically-a-treaty and might even be within the law to do so. So, while I don't necessarily agree that it was the best approach to the situation I do think that at the very least there was a pretty good argument in its favor. In fact, it could be considered a protest vote of the kind that people are criticizing Cruz for not bother with in other situations...

You are right, but all 3 men I am sure are aware of this and will go to war against GOPe if they need to. If he feels he has been screwed by GOPe Trump almost certainly will go 3d party just to pay back. That prospect may just prevent the dirty trickery which you correctly anticipate.

All this Marxist "critical theory" attack on free society depends on first tearing down everything we are, via so called sexual "freedom" (to force young girls to have naked boys in their showers), or racial hate, or hate for the cops.

http://tinyurl.com/q36uwg8

The second and third video at that link, "The Radical Catholic", explains the left and how "critical theory" began succinctly ... tear down and destroy our strong society with their insane new social norms. Demand tolerance from traditional people, but be completely intolerant of their standards. Make them accept the leftist standard, by coercion and by law if possible. Or for Obama and Hillary, just break our laws.

They say Russia has spent most of their KGB type money on subversion, not just spying. Of course we know Valerie's dad and Obama's mentor were card carrying commies, whose students now run the free world. They successfully infiltrated our institutions, which is why we are where we are with all this craziness.

My first crush / wet dream was Marilyn Monroe, though, at this distance, I can't remember what first put her in my young pubescent mind. But since then, she's been the template for what I find attractive in a woman, though, oddly enough, I much prefer redheads to blondes (in which case Jessica Rabbit would be my ideal woman). Of course, I also get weak-kneed for the sort of glossy screen queen look of a Norma Shearer or Pola Negri.

Which is why I suppose I prefer Ginger to Mary Ann. I can appreciate the fresh-scrubbed hometown girl look, but I'm a very shallow man and Ginger's Hollywood artifice is more my style.

In a way, he's the Republican Dindu Nuffin, at least politically. His training and expertise lie well outside politics, and what he says is, by and large, innocuous. He comes across as friendly and nonthreatening. Kinda like the family doctor.

That would hardly be a knock on him if he was running for, say, a state or Congressional gig where he could use the time after being elected to learn about the job. But we've already seen what a guy who comes out of nowhere -- from Left Field, you might say -- does when dropped into a position where he's in way over his head.

165 The economics of Obamacare were insane from the beginning. Obamacare promised to:

1. Add millions more people to the healthcare system without adding any doctors, nurses, or hospitals.

2. Force the system to provide all kinds of "free" and expanded services to those people.

3. Make health care cost less.

Anyone with even the most basic understanding of economics could see that these goals were mutually impossible.

167 "stealing money from your savings accounts"
That is done by inflation. Before the Fed a quarter would buy $20 to $50 dollars of goods and services. The Fed is totally captured by their own dogma. Negative interest rates are deflationary but the Fed thinks negative rates are inflationary. They use to bleed people who were sick. Same thing. Money velocity will become negative as people buy real goods. This effect is what made Kennedy lower income taxes. eg 100% of nothing is still nothing. Hard to tax canned goods and clothes on people's backs. Obamacare?

I will post this on the art thread-hopefully-If I'm around but here's a phone number for a prayer and encouragement line . Today's word of encouragement is from 2nd Thessalonians.

You can lave a prayer request at the end: of the message 1-800-939-5825. I called it to make sure I hadn't transposed the numbers and wasn't getting a sex phone line by mistake. Some people might prefer that, but you can't leave a prayer request with them. :^)

I would highly recommend, "In Confidence: Moscow's Ambassador to Six Cold War Presidents" by Anatoly Dobrynin.

He mentions bumping into LBJ right before his televised decision not to run. He says, LBJ was a bit distraught, but mentions that he mumbled "he wanted to do at least something to help the American people and not the party."


Democrats are about power and the party is the means. They do not care anything about people let alone the Republic (whats left of it).

Not as wide as you would like to think, in this instance. We use some of the same products in my business so I have a little experience in the area.

243 I think this will backfire. Are illegal aliens going to control our culture and media? Are baby foul mouthed gangbangers going to terrorize us into silence? SNL needs the ratings and NBC needs increased ad revenues. They already lost their honey pot for a next debate. Money or gangbangers? They will have to give the ad money back if they cancel Trump.

And now presenting another-

Obama tries to destroy Red State America and threaten American lives moment:


His EPA are trying to make your Air Conditioning Illegal:


http://hotair.com/archives/2015/11/04/gina-mccarthy-

is-coming-for-your-air-conditioners/

(remove extra spaces)


Notice that, like guns, they are trying to accomplish this -

1) Through UN treaties, to bind the US by sidestepping Congress and legislation

2) Like going after bullets, they are trying to make your AC's coolant illegal-

you know, the same ECOSAFE coolant which replaced freon because it was ECOSAFE.


And yes, this does threaten lives - see how well grannie and infants survive the typical Houston, New Orleans, etc - summer without AC.




President Cruz needs to immediately locate half of the Washington DC bureaucracy to the Arctic Circle

and half to Death Valley.

Then require changing of residence from one to the other every two years.

Let's see how much the bureautrash hates Mod Cons after that.

FS, thank you so much for the kind words, the prayers and the prayer line.

And Anna was kind enough to give you a link to my book, which is available as both Kindle and paperback.

Thanks again to all of you who offered prayers or encouragement yesterday. It's an odd feeling to "know" people on line better than in person, but that's the nature of the web these days.

As far as my own situation, I know what I need to do; it's having the wisdom to find the right road and strength to take it. I appreciate you keeping me in your thoughts, as I keep you in mine.

And now, a story. This is the famous operatic contralto Ernestine Schumann-Heink:

https://goo.gl/8MDeyU


It seems that she was performing at a Met gala sometime in the 1920s. Being of a rather pronounced avoirdupois, she got stuck between a couple of flats backstage as she was making her way along. A helpful stagehand pulled her out and suggested, "Madame, you should have gone through sideways."

"Young man,"
the singer smiled, "I have no sideways!"

Posted by: Hayfield Volkovski at November 05, 2015 08:44 AM (JuTpo)


Yes!!!

And like a lot of things Japanese, it is-

simultaneously hilarious and totally awesome.


This year they had a huge Star Wars themed Costume Ball and Halloween parade in Shibuya(the young people's section of Tokyo).

You can find it online.

And it wasn't half-assed at all.

They. Went. All. The. Way.


By the way, they also do Christmas (not the same way, of course)-

and depending on where you are-

it can look like the most nostalgic American Christmas decorations evah.

Enough to get dust in our eyes.

264 Russian nuclear forces conducted a large-scale exercise last week that included test firings of several long-range missiles along with dual-capable shorter range ballistic and cruise missiles, according to U.S. officials.
The U.S. Strategic Command, meanwhile, is conducting a similar nuclear command and control exercise, but without firing any nuclear missiles.


Well to be honest the russians have to really fire theirs since their's tend to go boom more often when light up....Just saying

273 SNL needs all in the audience to sign an agreement that if they interrupt the performance with Trump hate, they agree to pay $20K in damages. I'd guess there is legal recourse against someone damaging their SNL product deliberately, for money. Maybe not.

It really does seem possible Trump will win a lot of the Hispanic vote and the black vote, even some union vote with his "America First" slogans.

280 Well, they may not have a 4th of July, however-


they do have a long tradition of summer hanabi (fireworks).

And you can pretty much buy them anywhere to set off your own self-

unlike most places here in the US.

And the YUUUUGE fireworks displays by the major cities like Tokyo or even, Hiroshima-

absolutely put to shame any 4th of July fireworks displays that I've seen here in the US.

Plus, beer, good food, and polite, clean crowds-

what's not to like?

I think part of it is something akin to survivor guilt. Liberals feel guilty about developing the most civil, advanced, humane civilization, and they feel guilty for that.

But not all societies are like that. Israel still has a survival instinct. That's why so many suicidal liberal elites hate it.

Personally, I think survivor guilt is irrational and pathological. It is false guilt.

Of course.other liberals are driven by spite and envy (Alinsky). They groom this guilt in order to get societies to accede to their own destruction.
