1 Good Morning Morons. Today is Tuesday, January 19, 2016. On this day in 1977 it snowed in Miami. This is the only time in the history of the city that snow has fallen. It also fell in The Bahamas.

2 There are still some Americans over in that third world muzzie shithole who are being held by terrorists. But of these people why in the hell would a couple with a pregnant wife be hiking around in this lawless hell? And the second question is should the US expend major assets and risk the lives of our military people to free them from their own stupidity?


I figure that we will do little or nothing in these affairs. After all, Perdicaris alive or Raisuli dead came about only because Teddy needed something to boost his polls for reelection. Obama is not up for reelection and he is absolutely nothing like Brian Keith and there are no muzzie terrorists who even remotely resemble Sean Connery. (sorry, one of my favorite films but the quote is real.)

4 The British Parliament is getting ready to vote on a proposal raised following a petition initiated by crackpot Suzanne Kelly following Trump's call for a temporary ban on muzzie migration to the US until proper vetting can be done (which has been and still is falsely reported by the MFM as a permanent ban). Trump has fired back and said if he is banned all that investment he was planning on making in Scotland will be cancelled.

6 Ohio will pay $5.3M to the family of a black man shot by a university cop who had stopped his car for not having a front license plate after an altercation ensued. The university agreed to pay the blood money extortion before the trial of the cop even begins. The university also agreed to free tuition for his 12 children.

7 Meanwhile protesters from a subchapter of the BLM terrorist group blocked the westbound lanes of the Bay Bridge between Oakland and San Francisco. They cited black health matters what ever the fvck that means. They will probably be let go with zero punishment and few charges if any, which is why this kind of shit will continue.

8 Black race baiters are upset that there are no black people nominated for an Oscar and want Chris Rock (host) to boycott the event. Everybody with half a brain knows that the nominating committee has long been driven by whatever PC crusade is popular at the time they choose. And blacks are no longer the cause celebre of the Whoreywood elite. The current PC push is muzzies and homosexuals.

like I said to Amish Dude...

I ran away from home at age 12 to work construction b/c of a drunk bi-polar mom who didn't give any positive shit about me or my baby brother.

Mom(GOP Congress) was metaphorically in the bedroom blowing the President.

This ain't a suicide note it is a "sober the fuck up and get on psychotropes for your Bi-Polar Disorder or I'm gone" note.

I was emancipated and living on my own in an apartment by 15.

I started volunteering for the GOP the next year.

I have spent more time with a Bi-Polar GOP than I did with my insane drunk mother God rest her soul...

really just an attack on Rubio, which is fine with me, but said nothing
about Jeb other than "Leadership!" Posted by: Bernhard Goetz at January 19, 2016 07:06 AM


I find it amusing -- and telling -- that the attack ads we're seeing (at least in the NE) are attacks on low-polling, ain'tgonnahappen candidates, paid for by supporters of other low-polling ain'tgonnahappen candidates.

I mean, does anyone care if Heb! doesn't like Rubio? Or that Rubio doesn't like Heb!? Or that neither likes Krispy Kreme?

Apparently Flint water personnel couldn't be bothered with running a simple test for ph. So that overly acidic water entered the system which corroded the pipes and leeched lead into homes.

But it's the fault of republicans, not the water authority personnel, who I bet are 100% democrats.

Trump is nothing more than a reincarnation of Republicans circa 2004, if you're old enough to remember '04 and you're still falling for the same lies then yeah, you're a brain dead rube.

So am I to presume that the other GOP candidates aren't blatantly lying through their teeth?

Rubio isn't going to do a damned thing about immigration;
!Jeb won't take a dump without CoC approval;
Cruz isn't getting rid of the IRS;
Christie won't decimate the ass-kissing, rainbow flag-waving timeserving officer corps infesting the armed forces;

- and so on, down through John "Did I mention dad was a mailman, just like you proles?" Kasich.

They're all lying. I just happen to find Trump's lies more amusing than the others. And the fact that he throws MFM reporters out of his events and eschews "civility" for a punch in the face is the icing on the cake.

As Ace said, a lot of the Trump hate is virtue signaling. Were !Jeb proposing a temporary ban on Muslim immigration and a wall along the Mexican border paid for by Mexico, the NRO types would be stroking their chins and discoursing about his "tough, but necessary" policy statements, because the words came from Jeb - from the mouth of one of the gentry class. Trump is, in Spy's immortal phrase, a "short-fingered vulgarian," and no matter what he proposes, the GOPe and their allies will find a way to oppose it simply by virtue of Trump being "Trump."

In Texas any citizen is authorized to use deadly force to prevent the commission of a felony. Organized gang misdemeanors rise to said felony level - which is why you don't see that going on here. And by the way attempting to intimidate anyone over the age of 65 is a felony.

232 Good morning all.


From this date in 1944- Liri Valley Italy

Jan 19, 1944 - The EZ Dog Journals
Ground haze and cool. British pushed up then CA'd and forced to withdraw. 10 Corps well across Garigliano in south. Moving in behind Majo mass. 46 Div moving across river in front of Maggiore tonight.
II Corps shoves off across Rapido tomorrow. Brigade moves to new CP vic Lungo tomorrow. 2-77 moving to new positions north of Lungo tonight. Light day today, only 28 rds fired in entire Brigade. Col S----- came back from 5th Army with a Legion of Merit.



CA'd = counterattacked
46 Div = British 46th Division
2-77 = 2-77th Field Artillery Battalion


This Allied push across the Garigliano and Rapido rivers was timed to coincide with the Anzio invasion, in order to divide the Germans' attentions. In response to the British crossing of the Garigliano River Field Marshall Kesselring moved two divisions from south of Rome down to counter the British advance (having received flawed intelligence that no Allied amphibious attack was imminent).

The German counterattack prevented the British from taking high ground to the south of the site of the American advance across the Rapido tomorrow- which would leave the American 36th (Texas) Division exposed to withering German artillery, beginning tomorrow, with devastating results.

253 "Hey, guys, if we use dissimilar metals we can save a lot of weight!"

As a young Sailor, not yet wise in the ways of metals and seawater, I was assigned to painting and preservation on the main deck port aft enclosed passageway on our Knox Class Frigate.

That is when I discovered that the structure above the main deck in areas was an aluminum alloy, and the structure below was steel. And where the two metals touched? Oh boy.

Retractable Helo Hanger had steel gear racks fastened to an aluminum bed. All separated from physical contact by a polymer tape between the two. Galvanic corrosion would build and push out between the stationary bed, and the racks to the point that the racks would be displaced, and the hanger could not be retracted, or extended.

Interesting, if the helo was in the air, and you had to retreat the hanger to allow the helo to land.

So all ethnic groups must be represented for awards, whether deserved or not. Is that it? Yes, apparently so. And if the Oscars started to sub-divide categories, ie. Best Actor/White, Best Actor/Black, Best Actor/ Hispanic...would they scream and kick? Why, yes. Yes, they would. There is no making these people happy. Racial divide now, racial divide always. It's really a hopeless cause to ever think we're going to be a colorless society.

Cruz is "polarizing" with his NY values comment? I don't care. Not going to do what they want - make a big deal of the dust-up between the two of them and join the circular firing squad.


Also, when it comes to religion, is there anyone worse than Obama at misquoting the bible? He's based his whole legacy on his intentional misinterpretation of the "Brother's Keeper" remark in the bible. Cain was not endorsing socialism, dumba$$. And "sin is when I am out of alignment with my values" and "Jesus was a great teacher" --- whaaaaat the #$@! is he talking about? He's not God.

(and as a sidelight - Trump needs to lighten up. Because he's never held office, his VP pick is very important. Because that will best show who he is. He needs someone like Cruz in my estimation.)

- or Rubio or Jeb! landing a knockout soundbite punch during the remaining debate-

that's it.

Jeb has two fatal problems, and they are closely intertwined. The first is, on key issues like Amnesty and Common Core, he is way to the left of the mainstream.

The second is his inauthenticity. Nobody believes Jeb is a conservative; he's a Big Gov moderate like his dad and his brother.

If he ran as a Big Government moderate, he would at least consolidate the Establishment vote behind him. But by trying to pass as conservative, he only succeeds in alienating both wings.

If a Trump admin secures the border, takes care of our military, gives some tax/regulatory reform, and basically lets Jeff Sessions advise and pick the judges, and just held the line on virtually everything else..it would be the greatest conservative advance in 25 years!

If Trump happens to be the tool our side uses to achieve those things that we've wanted for 25 years, why not use it?

Jeff Sessions would be President Trump's most trusted ally in the Senate. Think about that. JEFF FUCKING SESSIONS. That means we would have a solid conservative in the Senate in Trump's ear at all times and on every major big issue. This is good, people!

If, IF he continues to run the way he has, as a conservative firebrand whipping the effete failed GOP leadership at every turn, why should this be a negative? We need some public conversion stories, an unavoidable narrative of "I thought these things I've accepted as normal were ok too, but I realized they're not."

We need our countrymen to break up with socialism. His entire appeal is that he's not a republican. And that's good, because we only need a few people to break our way to start turning things around.

I watched some of his speech at Liberty U yesterday and was once again reminded of how good he is in before a crowd. He talked about undoing a lot of the damage the leftards have done, about restoring our manufacturing sector, Christianity and a bunch of other topics that I never hear the other imbecile milquetoast RINO candidates mention.

Will he follow through on his campaign rhetoric? I have no way of knowing, but he at least talks about life out here in the real world. I'll have to settle for that at this point, especially after all the years of not hearing about it.

I wonder if Cruz has out-played Trump on this issue. At first, I thought it a mistake by Cruz and allowed Trump to play the 9/11 card.

I disagree with this statement. He knows exactly what sort of judges he will pick, I believe, based upon his effusive belief that his sister is the best federal judge in New York. I think it's pretty obvious Trump will appoint judges in the arc from Anthony Kennedy to Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Right, but when Ted Cruz or Rand Paul do that, or Allan West, they get pigeonholed as angry racist republicans. Trump hasn't, because that's not his identity. That's what makes him different.

And your prediction isn't any more or less valid than mine. The only thing we can do is listen to what he says.

Trump is a known entity alright. He's known to have held generally liberal positions for much of his career. He's known to have praised Obama and given money to Emanuel and Reid.

Cruz has made some wrong choices , but there are no perfect candidates. However, once again we see that any departure from doctrinal purity on the part of "the Canadian" (I believe that's what they call Cruz at Daily Kos and HuffPo, as well, nice of you to follow suit) is damning, while anything - anything - Trump has done or said in the past gets a "meh. big deal" response.

Pretty sad to me that Trump, the NY moderate who just became a conservative as been more consistent in his defense of Sarah Palin over the last several years than the Republican party and even the so called conservative movement who has treated her like shit. She doesn't owe them anything, and she might think that at this point in history, Trump is the tool we need to bring in new voters in the general, peel off 10% of dems usual support, and do things like secure the border finally.

617 Pretty sad to me that Trump, the NY moderate who just became a conservative as been more consistent in his defense of Sarah Palin over the last several years than the Republican party and even the so called conservative movement who has treated her like shit.

I don't recall Cruz ever saying something bad about her. I hope she doesn't endorse Trump - because I think her endorsement is yuge - and I know she is a fan of Cruz.

Trump donates mostly to who's in power, as he's said and the fact bare that out, it's also not like he didn't donate to Republicans over the same periods, particularly those where he owned property. The D donations get the press, the R's not so much.

622 want to shoot a duck or goose?

in addition to a federal stamp, you need a state hunting license, a waterfowl stamp privilege, and a free Harvest Information Program (HIP) number



Also, ducks and geese are completely familiar with the regulations.

I'd take my kayak way up in the tributaries of the salt marsh, or up in the headwaters of the river that fed them, and the critters were super-spooky. Come around a bend as silently as you can and they still take off in panic.

It's actually quite tricky to sneak up on a huntable duck.

Then I'd go down to my marina, too close to civilization to shoot things, and all of that tasty potential dinner would just paddle around and laugh at me.

Janet Hubert (Aunt Viv) from Fresh Prince of Bel Air had something to say about it on YouTube. I'm thinking some alcohol was involved, but no matter. She wonders why Will Smith isn't saying anything but Jada Smith is instead speaking for him. Also points out that during contract negotiations for Fresh Prince, Will Smith was content to leave everyone else in the ensemble out in the cold while he negotiated his big paydays.

Any video where someone calls Jada Smith "Miss Thang" is OK with me.

631 Donna and V.... Trump violates all the old rules. Come on... you said you don't support him and would not vote for him without being forced to. We get it. This election isn't about who's lying or changed their positions or donated to who... when the #1 guy... out front since July is a NON-POLITICIAN who has enormous previous name recognition and who isn't beholden to the media to help get his message out.

I don't want to come across as rude, but continuing to point out Trump weaknesses misses the point. His support is multi-layered and diverse. And I don't think any Trump supporters would tell you they think he'll do everything he says he will.

He's the only one speaking out. He's the guy saying what was impossible to consider talking about prior to June of 2015. Maybe he'll implode... maybe he'll be horrid in office.... but he's going to win it all ... in a landslide... with a Yuge mandate to cajole a bitter Congress into doing a bunch of stuff they otherwise would never have addressed. That's my prediction. Might as well get on the bus with us and enjoy the ride!

As we've seen in the past 7 years, who occupies the WH is important in steering our society. We have been divided more during TFP's regime that at any time that I can remember and he's the main reason for it as best I can tell.

Trump's popularity would go much further in uniting us, further than TFP was able to divide us. But I still hope there's a place for Cruz in a Trump administration as AG, VP or SCOTUS pick.

I've had the thought that he might be going for the one thing all of his money can't buy - a legacy.

Looking back, when she has endorsed in contentious primaries, she has not gone over the top or even attack the opponent at all. She just focuses on what is good about the endorsee.

Totally, but that hasn't stopped him from garnering support, most importantly crossover support. It's the difference between being shot at and being hit. He isn't a republican, and that means that the poisonous slander, the wholly psychological word-association of "republican" that's stuck to everybody from Palin and Santorum to Scott Walker and Ted Cruz doesn't take with Trump.

and to you, V the K, I'm sorry that this is the world we live in, that style is more important than substance, and that the electorate is on the cusp of accepting the idea that it should be ruled. It wasn't my idea and I don't like it either. But Trump can actually win, convincingly, and he's doing it by repudiating white-tower socialist progressivism and our preening aristocracy.

Not quite.

There are issues, and there are shibboleths. There was someone here posting the other day that the Kelo Supreme Court decision was his single issue Hill to Die on. Don't feel the same way about that issue myself, but chacun a son gout.

Think we all get that a pol will have a series of public utterances and actions over a career, and for the most part, you total up the bill and make a yes/no/maybe decision.

But there are single issue trip wires and deal killers that will vary from person to person.

Yes we are. And the only thing I have to evaluate a candidate by is his or her record. Failing that, their words and their stances on the issues.

I'm looking for things to be positive about, since we're still in the evaluation phase. I haven't decided between Trump or Cruz (the rest are a waste IMO), but I find the constant negativity towards either one off-putting.

I'm looking for the best candidate to undo as much of the left's agenda as possible. If that's Trump, then so be it. Same for Cruz. At this point, I see Trump as better capable of doing this than Cruz. Add in the societal aspects of Trump's celebrity status and his potential to steer society back towards some type of sanity (and away from the freakishness of late) and I'm almost ready to jump the Cruz ship.

Wife went with a friend and enjoyed it.
I told her I wasn't all that interested because I had read a lot about Hugh Glass and dislike movies that distort actual history, which is too easy to do to "mountain men" movies. "Jeremiah Johnson" does not even come close to the real John Johnson history.

She said "well, he lived through it".
I said "That time. Yes. He ended up getting killed by Indians a few years later".
She got a sad on with that "news."

But that's still compensated eminent domain. The "public use" in this case being rather flimsy, hence the lawsuit.

But, if the government grabbing stuff is the issue, it would seem uncompensated situations like bond cram downs and outright property gnofing without reasonable judicial restraint in property forfeiture cases would be the place to draw the line in the sand.

Many years ago I prosecuted charges of theft and burglary against a couple of criminal geniuses who apparently thought there was a big hot snake market out there and burglarized a woman's house stealing her two pet snakes. This was just before Christmas but they still couldn't unload the snakes and eventually abandon them in a grocery store parking lot. When I got the victim impact statement, she described how hurt she was that her pets had to endure Colorado winter temperatures in a parking lot before they were rescued. She loved her some snake.

Pretty much all you can do, aside from also voting for sanity and hope it'll take hold this time (I doubt it will, since it hasn't the last few times we've tried, despite strenuous efforts.)

If sanity doesn't win, we're headed to pure chaos. The idiot Lefties thought they could harness it to do their heavy lifting, and Chaos, being the oldest thing in all of existence, was happy to oblige their naivete until they could release it from its bindings. As the old saying goes, old age and treachery beats youth and optimism every time...

If you look at some of the takings they have done on Long Island you would not call it "compensated". In one case I saw they paid a guy $20,000 for a one acre lot with 150 foot of water frontage. Of course he sued.


In Kelo they took the property to give it to someone else who was a crony. And then it was never used. It was outright theft and blatantly unconstitutional,

777 Re: the Flint water situation.

I'll be the first to admit I am not fully informed of the timeline, etc. but I can tell you this.
Flint has been run by Democrats, in the same vein and with the same attitude, as the Democrats in Detroit for decades. It was finally run almost into bankruptcy when the auto companies shuttered many plants and did a mini version of what happened to Detroit.

Gov.Snyder appt. an emergency manager for the city of Flint in 2011. One of the issues was the cost of water , water that was provided by the Detroit System, which was teetering on the edge of bankrupcty and when the city went, the water system went with it.

Flint's Emergency Manager and others decided that to save money, they would disconnect the city water system from Detroit, who continued to raise rates(that is a totally separate story, remember the protests over people getting their water shut off in Detroit because they hadn't paid a bill in three years?) to become solvent. They decided to join a new regional system that wasn't ready to function yet. So instead, they began to draw water out of the Flint River.

The Flint River drains the "crotch" of the thumb area in Michigan, before it finally empties into Lake Huron. Lake Huron is where Detroit gets it's water from....So try to balance that out, that the Detroit water downstream is better than the water upstream....

Apparently no one noticed, or cared how corrosive the water was. It was so corrosive that it dissolved the old lead solder joints used in the ancient system, putting lead in the water.

So this is a failure of the EPA, the water Dept. of Flint, the Emergency manager, etc.
Not sure at what point the Gov is so guilty that he needs to resign. (which is utter partisian bullshit, the Gov. is Rep.)

Posted by: AE at January 19, 2016 07:51 AM (+ft6G)


If I were one of the affected landowners, I'd just get a drone, rig it with a pocket flare launcher, and fly it into the gas plume and flare it, which is what should have been done from the outset. Making sure, of course, that no dumb workers were close enough to the leak site to get toasted. Flaring is SOP if you have a well blowout, and the escaping gas is threatening the health of nearby residents.
