30 Years ago a woman was helping to plan her daughter's wedding. She met with the owner of a flower shop and selected beautiful ornate centerpieces for each of the tables at the reception. In order to cut costs and maximize his profit the flower shop owner subcontracted with a shady supplier for metal trays on which to set the centerpieces.

Of course, when the big day came, the low-bid trays were not strong enough and crumpled as they were being carried into the banquet hall. This caused all of the floral arrangements to fall to the ground and the big day was ruined.

Seeking compensation, the lady consulted with her lawyer who counseled her...

..."You can't sue the florist for the trays."

Hypocrites! I won't listen to a celebrity complain about guns until they eliminate all the bad guns from their movies and tv shows.

Please, demonstrate for us what a post-2nd Amendment America would look like. One good example is the Brit cop show "Luther" where the detectives are unarmed, and surprisingly, end up getting in fist-fights w/their suspects when they confront them.

55 What a flippin' week.

So that asshole kidney stone that migrated south for the winter last week seems to have done damage on the exit, causing...well, its point of egress to contract to the point I couldn't #1 early Friday morning.

Trip to the ER opened the way, but yesterday I had a cystoscopic dilation to make sure it took. I'll save you the web search with the description "you want to stick what in my what and do what?!?" Blessedly they knocked me out for that. But now I have a Foley catheter for a week.

Truly, a pain in the dick.

Nice art, though.

The ugly art - modernist and post modernest periods were supposed to be initiated in reaction to the horrors of WW1.
Unless Smets was reacting to the horrors of the Russo-Japanese war, I call bosh on that concept.

Um some of his stuff is kind of pretty, I like some of the paintings, when he felt like it he did stuff that was reminiscent of the Goya court paintings.

Others are just blocky and stiff looking. Oh, well.

---------------------

All the Brit cop shows are the same. Many end climactically with the cop having to talk to the armed suspect who usually has their kidnap victim at gunpoint, or about to throw them off a bridge, or burn them alive. The cops always get there just in time, no matter how far across town, or how well hidden they are. And the talking is always successful. True fantasy.

You believe that because the history has been written by leftists who view the world as an unimpeded ratchet to the left.

However, the 1920s was a "return to normalcy" that saw prosperity and progress with unemployment rates of 3% to 5% while America transitioned from horses to motor vehicles, most of the country installed electricity for lighting, for new appliances that were available and for the radios that were now widely available. At the same time enormous strides were made in aviation.

All the left wants to talk about is Prohibition and the Stock Market Crash.

A hundred years from now, leftist politicians will ignore Ronald Reagan the way they now ignore Calvin Coolidge.

89 That painting isn't at all realistic. When I look out my window, deep in the heart of the northern forests, I see snow. And Wind. Blowing snow makes for bad roads. And Cold. Temp ten degrees and falling. Too cold for salt, yet The State keeps pouring salt on the road in the hope that one day the temperatures will rise enough the salt will melt the ice made by the snow plow as it tries to scrape up the teeny tiny snowflakes.

So I look at these orange trees and wonder what it is that would make those trees orange? A distant nuclear explosion over the horizon? A house fire, perhaps started by a chimney fire, or candle? Maybe an oil well, or gas well fire. Or a false color image from a light amplification device?

It is a mystery to me because when I look outside I see white, grey gloomy sky, dark trees. Even the evergreen are so dark they are almost black.

The guy who painted that picture isn't from around here, that's for certain.

100 >>Many end climactically with the cop having to talk to the armed suspect
who usually has their kidnap victim at gunpoint, or about to throw them
off a bridge, or burn them alive.


Yup. The recent Luther special episode had this truly psycho killer who was just randomly, gruesomely offing people in all sorts of imaginative, non-gun related ways. Ended with confrontation and the talking. Why would you expect to talk a psychopath out of a killing spree - logic and reason have already left the building, mate!

But this is what Hollywood wants so bad - a world in which the killers and criminals have the advantage because they are better-armed (with whatever weapon they use) and have the will to use them. Meanwhile, the good guys act tough and....talk.

171 (Today is the 388th anniversary of the birth in Paris of French author Charles Perrault (1628-1703), who created the literary foundations of the fairy tale in his 1697 collection Tales and Stories of the Past with Morals, sub-titled Tales of Mother Goose (Les Contes de ma Mère L'Oye) - which included Le Petit Chaperon rouge (Little Red Riding Hood), Cendrillon (Cinderella), Le Chat Botté (Puss in Boots), Le Barbe bleu (Bluebeard), and La Belle au Bois Dormand (The Sleeping Beauty).* Born to a wealthy family, Perrault was given a good education and embarked on a career of government service, eventually under Jacques Colbert, finance minister to Louis XIV. Subsequently, after losing his government posts, he turned to writing, at first on architecture, painting, and stage works, but later epic poetry. He wrote his Mother Goose collection for his own children, likely basing many of his tales on existing folk stories. His collation was translated into English by Robert Sambert in 1727 and is now familiar all over the world.

For the record, the only dietary limitations I have are "drink lots of fluids" and "no alcohol for 24 hours after the procedure", which is up this afternoon and has more to do with the sedative working its way out of my system.

I may even wander in to work later this week, though even if I don't I'm covered rather well, between stockpiling sick days almost nonstop since I started this job, working with folks who understand, and at least one co-worker as witness when I was picking up my prescriptions.

212 I would never buy baseballs to use, and it does seem a little wasteful, but I've kept a bunch of balls from games I've seen, for no particular reason, now I have something to do with them rather than watch them gather dust. Come February, I will have a nearly bottomless pit of free baseballs from Wake Forest games. We watch from outside the stadium, right field side, get a half dozen balls hit to us every game, counting fouls and homers. One guy keeps a 5-gallon bucket to put them in, and then at the end of the season gives away a prize to whoever guesses the total. Aluminum bats and mediocre pitching = a lot of long flies.

Since the states end up voting after the fact on all amendments, and three quarters of the states have to approve of each amendment, I think we are safe from libtard mischief. So I don't worry at all about your point (A).

As far as (B) goes I don't get the concern. Recently Jim Geraghty tried to make a similar argument, saying citizens are ignorant of the constitution so why change it, and that's nonsense. Geraghty argues more (or all?) citizens be required to be constitutionally literate before we try to fix abuses and, of course, that is ridiculous. As far as your own point goes, I think amending the constitution in order to give citizens more ability to fight back against abusive government obviously is a good thing.

So what if the bad guys will keep trying to abuse us? We just keep fighting them, and strengthening our hand constitutionally can only be a good thing.

Our s.o.p. was to wrap them up in black friction tape. They sucked but it was better than not playing. We also solved bat cracks at the handle of the bat by using thin nails to fortify them. This also sucked because sometimes the nails bent, and once cracked, the bats were never really the same.

Once my mom drove me to the large discount store (Almart) where I bought three baseballs for $1.00. I thought I had hit the lottery, only to learn that they split apart after being hit around for about 15 minutes. They had some sort of compressed cellophane filling. Probably my first real lesson in "You get what you pay for."

Well the state can't go "bankrupt" apparently, they seem to think they own us all. The way to beat the unions claim on their golden (illegally unfunded) pensions, is to show the quid pro quo between the pensioners/union bosses/Democrat politicians. Vast sums are paid to the Democrats with the agreement that public union workers would get special treatment. Can't fire them for incompetence, must pay them for spurious/worthless extended degree credits, they get to retire early on pensions sometimes higher than their salary, etc.

This came up a decade or more ago, the illegal non-funding, and the Democrat response was to continue not funding enough (that would have bust the budget and killed their reelection chances) ... so they reinforced that even unfunded liabilities would be paid by future taxpayers. ie., We will screw you now AND we will screw the children later. These people should be in prison with Blago.

But they still go on strike to harm the children they claim to love (Chicago 2012, bad system highest paid in country, had ObamaRahma over the barrel), while they hold a monopoly on "education". These are obvious Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations, that buy off our political process. So yes, all public teachers and their union thugs and the politicians they bought must go to jail, go directly to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $200,000. /sarconthatlastpart

1) He's channeling Marlon Brando
2) Native Americans really have gotten screwed, and in ways which illustrate the hypocrisy of leftist dogma.
3) There has been a concerted effort over the past 300 years to erase the evidence of Native Americans' written language, metal working and textiles technologies, and the very existence of the mound-cities in the Ohio river valley, and all of it was done by racist progressive democrats from the comfort of their academic sinecures, in defense of provably wrong theories about native culture and origins, which we see echoed in "climate science" today.

I always find it amazing that people, adults no less, swallow that BS. My lib sister a year or so ago made some random statement about how badly "we" screwed the Indians. Couldn't help myself and went onto the list some the brain dead assumptions with that statement and how "I" didn't screw any Indians in any case. She actual took it kind of hard but it really seems like she never heard any of the counter-arguments or facts, like Indians were robbing and killing each other long before Europeans came to these shores.

That's what is so maddening. Those actually killed aren't important to the narrative and hit the memory hole.

Same thing happened with the "planned parenthood shooting". Once it was tweeted that no one at PP had been even injured the MFM lost interest in any of those who were actually injured or killed. But it's still "the PP shooting" for purposes of propaganda.

421 Years ago a blogger was planning a chain of coffee shops. A design feature was a special area to contain customers who committed certain offenses to established decorum. This area required flooring that could withstand significant abuse, and he met one afternoon with the vendor to select flooring that was physically and chemically robust, and that incorporated appropriate elements of branding.

In order to cut
costs and maximize profit, the flooring vendor subcontracted with a
shady supplier.

Of course, when the big day came, the branding elements incorporated in The Barrel's flooring were incorrect, specifically a low-ranking playing card, rather than the high-ranking one specified.

This caused significant consternation amongst the patrons, even more so than the triple thread comment confusion observed on night of Alabama's 2015 football season triumph.



Seeking compensation, the blogger consulted with his lawyer who counseled him...

The most laughable part historically is when the Lakota village evacuates because a Pawnee raiding party is coming. There's a good reason that the Lakota were the dominant tribe of the Northern Plains.

We have an annual bicycle run here in Western CO and they are quite the obnoxious pieces of shit. The roads are cordoned off for the race and traffic diverted, but it is prior to the race that they try and take over the road to practice. There is nothing like seeing a pack of spandex wearing cyclists sweating and swearing because there is a Ford F-150 on their ass full of cowboys blowing the horn.

431 "To scalp an enemy was not especially creditable, for anyone could scalp a dead man; hence scalping was only of secondary importance. But if the scalping was done under danger, it was considered worthy. The scalp was a trophy, proof of success to be used in the Victory Dance (after touchdown celebration), and was also desirable as a decorative fringe for shirts, shields and tomahawks."

The Cherokee syllabary (written language) was developed in the 1810s and 20s by Sequoya. Before that, they had no written language. The Maya of Mesoamerica had a written pictographic language but no other Indian group in the Americas had a written language before first contact with Europeans.

Yes, and I like Trump because I think he will stay bought.

Trump is a smart guy and knows how to hire smart people. He has definitely shown wisdom by listening to the right people on his campaign, so far. I am just curious about who is the brains behind the operation.

I recall when Marlon Brando held a big spiffy press conference announcing that he was 'returning' a large parcel of land that he owned to an Indian tribe.

SJW's everywhere were fainting with joy.

What wasn't pointed out was that the land wasn't worth much as real estate, but as a tax write-off was surprisingly valuable.

538 >>Watch and listen!All of my friends support gun control, because the authority of our words is the greatest weapon of all..

Yeah, the Brit police shows are likely inflating the effectiveness of talking a criminal out of his crime in progress.

However, watching Luther was very instructive in how poorly prepared a disarmed police officer/detective is against a criminal.

The show I mentioned, "Luther", has a main character whose flaws include a temper/going overboard in beating down suspects. Luther would not be in that position in a lot of cases if he just had a gun - pointing it and telling a criminal to stand still while he arrests/handcuffs them would eliminate the suspects attitude of, "Hey, he's unarmed and I have this knife/pipe/baseball bat, so yeah, I'm not going to cooperate with your arresting me, buddy."

555 Trump advises Trump ... but he must have helpers.

O'Reilly is a long time friend, and their FOX chats have helped convince me Trump would be OK. Trump's kids are another positive indicator.

Trump got the advance copy of Coulter's book and used it fully to his advantage. So she was his best "adviser" so far I suppose.

Yeah, he has a company or three go through bankruptcy, but I don't know details. It is really not like an individual just skipping out on debt. Bonds or loans to companies are made with full knowledge of risk, and interest rates are set accordingly. Some businesses fail and then they get bankruptcy protection to work either a way out, or a fair way to divide the remainder, considering which debt is senior and so on.

Anyway ... to say Trump is just a moron that got given all his money is foolish, but is the attack many so called conservatives like to employ. Trump is not up to speed on every aspect of politics, but the other candidates have less experience in how things really work. The real nitty gritty of policy comes from the wonks, and Trump knows how to use "his people".

What Trump excels at is rallying America against the DC Cartel, and hopefully against the globalists. "America First" is not some sort of xenophobia ... it is only logical. The white guilt crap has to end. I'd like to hear Trump preach a little from the founders ideals ... we shall see.

She would get the same loving visit that Grandma Dunham got and then 30-40 minutes later she's having her personal evaluation with Satan. A dead Hillary is the best possible outcome for her family and her party--they get the 800 lb gorilla out of the room for good and sympathy into the bargain. Even though he looks cadaverous, I suspect that Bill is taking much better care of himself than she is. A POTUS campaign, even the low impact one she is running is exhausting and draining and she does not appear to have any reserves.

Maybe not so much.

If you keep up on real news, and have a problem-solving brain, you can create a lot of your policy positions, which is what Trump seems to do, which is why on some issues that come up he can be "thin" exactly because he doesn't have a team of consultants creating silly focus-grouped policy papers that will never be implemented.

On occasion Trump has "borrowed" as he did from Senator Sessions on Illegal Immigration.

622 "I would not expect him to have cared about cheap labor sources as long as he got plenty of it." mortimer

this is part of the problem with long term non enforcement ... to compete one has to accept the standard of using illegals, or become non-competitive.

Building trades and hotels, some horticultural things ... illegal labor is the norm and the only way to compete. In a sense the same problem with so called "free trade" where we buy from markets where workers are treated like slaves. So a big move to establish/grow the wine industry in Illinois mostly fails since two buck chuck made by illegals, and wine from Chile ... is impossible to compete with.

We can have "full employment" here, but not if we have to employ the whole world first, in hopes that they will one day buy from US.

She included on that list Laquan Mcdonald.

Um, Laquan's mother didn't "lose" her son. She had no interest in him and abandoned little Laquan at an early age. Laquan grew up a ward of the state. Then no-longer-little Laquan got shot. Then Mom suddenly took a VERY KEEN interest in Laquan. Mah baybee! Mah baybee! And Mom cashed a fat lawsuit-lottery check thanks to the kid she didn't want and had surrendered custody of.

Having no experience in that area I would expect that getting a solid supply of cheap labor involves battles with unions and other such obstacles that makes willing,legal inexpensive workers very appealing .

I agree. In this political climate, after 7+ years of watching things slide off the cliff, it's not hard to figure out what has the electorate so dayum pissed off at DC. Especially after we got back the Senate only to watch them give Bobo everything he wants with a cherry on top.

First and foremost, illegal immigrants are felons that make this country unsafe and unstable, plus they do the most damage at the local level by sucking up services to which they are not entitled. They are freeloading invaders--yeah, even, if they work 60 hours a week, they are freeloaders, because their money flies out of America to family in Mexico and we pay for their education, foodstamps, and health care. Such a deal for us.... Now, add in their crime rate and we are really talking a big problem--rape, drunk driving, murder, vehicular homicide, fraud, etc., etc.

Then we get to our invited freeloaders--Syrian refugees. Yeah, that's a good idea, invite a bunch of young healthy men who despise us and our culture here to live. WTF could possibly go wrong? Are you kidding me? Everything can and will go wrong with this, but, shut up, hater, diversity.

681 Having no experience in that area I would expect that getting a solid supply of cheap labor involves battles with unions and other such obstacles that makes willing,legal inexpensive workers very appealing.

The whole point of critical theory is to attack the weak point, or paradox, of a competing system (western capitalism) until that attack is subconscious, memetic, and can be applied independently by others, even to totally different situation.

As some moron was saying in a thread yesterday, we got bufu'd as a country by our deep-seated need to buy cheap. They exploited that instinct to open up pandora's communist box. Labor was the way they did it. It was always going to be the way they did it. It's not communist to be concerned with a rebalancing of the labor pool and the costs of different labor demographics here in this country.

However, Mort, if the paradox of Trump using illegal labor in his hotels and building projects makes him, the progenitor of border security as a campaign issue, untouchable, then I don't want to hear anything about the founding fathers. Because George Washington owned slaves.

Figure out a way to live, thrive, and survive in the dissonance.

683 527 In more good news for Hillary, Chelsea Clinton is still supporting her and hasn't withdrawn her endorsement. She is key to attracting millennials.
______________________

Millennials who live in $10,000,000 apartments with sweeping views of Central Park, and who have no discernable job skills (yet still get offered six-figure, make-work jobs, for which they rarely bother to show up).

So basically Chelsea gives them a lock on the Kardashian and Hilton sisters' votes.

684 "I believe Sybrina Fulton while doing the Trayvon death tour raked in a
lot of cash. I know that there was at least one physical family fight
over money between the mother and another relative that the police had
to break up. But other than that, it is all about peace, love, and
non-violence."

Sybrina copyrighted her dead son's likeness to "prevent him from being exploited", and suggested unsubtly that all profits from merchandising would be directed to good works. Those good works turned out to be lining her pockets.

I think that the fight between various family members was not Trayvon Martin's family, but Mike Brown's family. It was Mike Brown's stepfather who wore a shirt with the likeness of the deceased and the words "GONE TO SOON".

Not sure where Soon is, but I'm happy that the huge thug is there and not here.

691 @637 To add to it.

Illegals will never make a net financial positive contribution to the US Welfare State. In fact, they are a current net drain, and will always be. Nearly all of their children will be too, the occasional valedictorian excepted.

What they do is create an increasing need for the Welfare State, which means more teachers, social workers, health care workers, and prison guards.

If you make less than $xxx per year that's the way the math works, especially if you have children.

Now it's one thing to offer this to our current citizens, quite another to import the demand, especially when the math doesn't pencil out long-term for the citizens we're already trying to help.

Once again, minorities and women will be hardest hit.

Richard Harris was Irish, not a Brit, and fiercely proud of it.

There are a lot of great RH stories. Here's one:

Walking out from his London flat to get a pack of cigs, upon perusing the newspaper, he saw that Limerick Rugby, his local team from back home had a home match later that day at the infamous Thomond Park rugby pitch. In a day before cell phones, he said nothing to the wife, but flew over immediately which led to a three-day bender.

Upon returning to his London flat, he said to the wife: "Didn't you pay the ransom?"

Looked into it. The butt pirate has stepped down as acting Secretary, not withdrawn his nomination. Of all people, John McCain (R-Arizona) was holding the nomination up as long as he continued to serve as acting Secretary. But Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) now has a hold on the nomination, supposedly because of Administration policy on Club Gitmo. If the D's were in charge of the Senate, it would be mighty fabulous there in the Army. I have to believe there are other rearguard actions going on by the R's that we don't hear much about because they don't get through the media filter.
