Sorry for the repeat post (I left this near the end of the ONT), but it's a nice shot of happiness on what looks to be yet another lousy day, so I thought we could all use it: Robbie Williams and Olly Murs singing "I Wanna Be Like You" from The Jungle Book

I find it depressing, as I find so many things these days, that the progressives are capable of acting in the most reprehensible manner, from verbal "assaults" to downright physical violence, and there really is no significant public outcry or demand for enforcement of laws aimed at maintaining a civil society.

But, I predict, when the first bona fide "white/Christian" conservative goes on a rampage to protect his, or his families, personal safety. The entire might of the uber state, aided by the fifth column press, will come down on all of us with unbelievable quickness and ruthlessness!

38 "So we have to recall the dressers because of 36 injuries/deaths over a 27 year period? Everyone knows why the young kids are tipping them. They are pulling out the drawers to use them as steps."

We have one of these in our basement.

And truth be told, they do tip pretty easily if serious attention is not paid to weight distribution in the upper and lower shelves.

My guess is that IKEA sells more dressers worldwide than any other furniture manufacturer.

Plus the fact that IKEA furniture of this type tends to fall into the "Affordable Starter Furniture"price range.

Which attracts those who have little experience with living independently.
And now have children.

59 45 Do we have word from the Obama Administration on what was the motive behind the Istanbul Airport attack?

My guess on this one: the massive worldwide wave of xenophobia and racism as recently manifested in the Brexit vote caused these poor young men of some (redacted) religion or other to lash out due to the fear and backlash they feel in their peaceful communities. And Trump. That goes without saying.

Cynically, I just assumed that they were being settled in areas that some large corporations wanted them settled so as to avoid having to fill jobs with H2Bs. This would leave the H2B program available for those communities and employers that don't want them settled in their backyard.

Anymore I always look for the ways that the Feds are out to screw people over. I guess I feel comfortable wearing tinfoil hats. Cie le vie

Inter arab feuds and general hate of the infidel are the main reason for almost all terror, not Israel. And the Turkey-Israel "truce" has not even been signed yet and was just announce a few days ago. I am 100% sure it had nothing to do with this.

I was thinking about that; you run a couple of wood screws into the drywall, and then sue the drywall company AND Ikea when the furniture tips over.

Or you run a couple of wood screws into the studs in the wall, which works until the kid climbing on the furniture gets to be eight or ten years old and weights fifty pounds....

Or you could use a couple of lag bolts which works until the kid climbing on the furniture causes the back panel of the dresser to pull free from the frame . . . breaks down the drawer, and falls. ..

or the two hundred pound adult standing on top of the dresser to change a lightbulb. . .

Filing cabinets are a worse problem than dressers because they are typically high and deep so a loaded and fully open top drawer really changes the center of gravity. I notice my antique dresser actually has much smaller drawers on the top so unless I put lead bars in there and extended them I would have trouble changing the CG by very much.

I dont use their little strap; I use wood screws to attach a small (6") strip of 1x2 to the top piece. Then use the expanding bolt things with a soft washer to fix it to the wall. I pre-drill holes in the 1x2 and the fiberboard backing of the furniture. You need the 1x2 to clear your baseboards. I also run a little battery powered string of xmas LED lights (the tiny kind for decorating displays, maybe 12 lights), down the back. So I can see in the drawers in the morning without waking wife. Batteries last about a year.

117 Good morning Horde!

I kind of wish that Ace would look at the morning threads, it might help his depression and blood pressure.

Suffice it to say that I think he is buying into the media narrative regarding Trump's chances and spiraling into a mind set that isn't borne out by the facts.

Anyway, in polling news we have a new poll that has entered the mix. I'm curious if Allah will bother to post about it, since it isn't a "sky is falling" scenario.

Quinnapiac released the latest in their polling series and finds Clinton leading Trump 42% to 40%. This is a very significant result, since the last time this poll was run, Clinton was leading 45% to 41%.

As I keep pointing out, Trump can't get above 40%, but then Clinton isn't sealing the deal with the voters either. She is shedding support at time goes on, despite that giant outlier ABC poll.

Let me point out one possible scenario for November. The people on the edges that recoil from both candidates could end up voting for Johnson or Stienberg in decent numbers as protest votes, allowing one of them to win with around 40% of the vote. I can guarantee that Trump will pull at least 40%, so there is a realistic scenario where that is enough to win.

One other possibility that is likely to come into play. People have a way of "getting used to" odd politicians (Boris Johnson is a pretty good example). The GOP voters are getting used to the idea of Trump. With 4 months to go, it is possible that the Independents will do the same, especially when all the "Dump Trump" nonsense is finally put to bed.

In any case, the polling numbers do not support abject despair at this point. Clinton is in a very poor position and is a horribly flawed candidate. The media narrative isn't reality.

139 The media and pundits will do everything possible to trumpshame voters exactly as they shamed the Brexit supporters. With quite possibly similar results.

One preelection Brexit poll was off by 14 points from final tally. Add 14 points to Trumps 40 and Hillary gets trounced resoundingly.

As far as what Trump will do in office, my crystal ball is in the shop for repairs. I do know the supreme court and the second amendment will be safe, for a while.

It is just that Clinton is so flawed that it might be that she can't win no matter who we run.

Dropping 3 points in the Q poll during what was supposed to be a "terrible" period for Trump? You have to be a terrible candidate to do that.

To them, the fact the Department labeled the facility 'temporary' excused shortcomings in the compound's physical security. A 'temporary' designation enabled the facility to skirt a host of written internal security requirements that applied to more permanent locations. We also learned it was an improvised designation not used at any of the State Department's other 275 facilities around the world."

(and yes, I have heard Beck's views, and the weapons running schemes)

I also read that the very people the State Dept considered our "allies" were the ones who refused to help when the attack happened.

186 Brown has to decide whether to allow the manson killer out of prison. They use to be very tough on parole of murderers. After years of appeals, they got the courts to agree that they had to be paroled if qualified. The argument was that they were not sentenced to life without the possibility of parole. But in this Va Houton chick, she was sentenced to death and only became eligible for parole bc the courts had determined that the death penalty as written at the time was unconstitutional. So, I hope they do argue that she is ineligible for parole.

I'd rather Trump spend money putting out ads that sell the themes he was using in his speech the other day. I think they would help a lot.

But Clinton isn't getting benefit from all the money she is spending.
Posted by: Dave in Fla at June 29, 2016 08:40 AM (VnCtJ)


One of the big reasons Clinton is not getting as high as a ROI is that she is in the news for Benghazi and the email scandal - that's obvious. She's been washed of all sins by the media of Benghazi at this point.

But with her endless pile of money and the media on her side, she can still win. She should be toast by now with all that is going on. The money is still helping her tremendously.

Money talks.

Hopefully Trump is waiting to hit the airwaves in battle ground states after the convention. I assume that is what is happening. The GOP is not behind him, so there is not much money to spend right now.

And ground troops. It's nice to read even some of the Cruz campaign is helping out with this. He needs to step up his game.

_______________________

You can love people while disagreeing with them. You can love people while abhorring their destructive behavior. You can love people while telling them "no."

If you were a parent and had a child who was screaming "I hate you!" while trying to slap your face and spitting at you, would you say "that's okay, Junior, because I love you, so you just keep doing what you're doing because it would be un-Christian of me to try to stop you"? Of course you wouldn't. You would tell Junior to go to his room and stay there until he composed himself and was willing to behave in a civilized manner. You wouldn't apologize to Junior and tell him that YOU were the reason he was so hostile and aggressive, and that you clearly needed to say more nice things about him, so that he would have higher self-esteem, and give him a more generous allowance and more expensive toys, so that he didn't have reason to feel so hateful towards you.

If you had a neighbor who screaming all over the neighborhood that you are an a-hole, and was throwing rocks into your windows, and bringing his dog over to crap on your front porch every morning, would you say "Gee, Neighbor, because I'm a good Christian and it's my duty to love everybody, I'm going to invite you to move into my house and live with me, and I'm going to give you my ATM card and password, because I obviously need to show you that we're all part of the same human family"?

Love doesn't mean becoming someone else's doormat or punching bag. It also doesn't mean becoming their slave, or their sugar-daddy. In fact, doing those things is most un-loving, because it shows that you don't respect the other person, and that you don't believe in their integrity.

If you really love someone, then you should be willing to deal honestly with them. And that means telling them when their behavior is unacceptable to you.

Islam is a misogynistic, homophobic, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, violent, supremacist ideology. That is a fact, and it is not un-Christian to recognize and acknowledge that fact. It doesn't mean we hate Muslims, but it does mean that we strongly disagree with their belief system.

If there are some Muslims who want to come to the U.S. and they are willing to respect our culture and our laws and behave accordingly, then most of us have no problem with that. But inviting in millions of Muslims who openly loathe us and despise our culture, and who are actively working to undermine us -- or even kill us -- is simply insanity. And it is not "un-Christian" to point that out, and to oppose it.

246 231 The truth is the Republican party needs to reach out to new voters. They need to win more Blaxk, Hispanic, Asian and Younger voters. The white resentment strategy has failed. There were some Republicansnaa like Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and John Kasixh who were trying to move the party in this direction. But no, you decided that racial revenge is the answer.


"Blaxk"? "Kasixh"? They got this new thing on keyboards now - it's called a "C" button.

This is hardly "killing Trump" in the swing states. Those are pretty weak numbers for her. Yeah, she is winning, but not by a lot. And those are head to head numbers and don't account for the Libertarian and Green candidates drawing voters off.

If the election were today, she would likely win narrowly.

Now, anyone whos ever filed an unemployment claim knows full well that being fired for misconduct nullifies ones eligibility to collect benefits. Not in Clicks self-entitled mind, however. After being publicly disgraced, Click still had the hubris to hire attorneys and fight the universitys decision to refuse her unemployment benefits.

Maybe he plans on sticking the convention, the debates, and election week - treat them like sweeps week of whatever. The other weeks are reruns or filler or hiatus time.

He may have twigged to something they haven't: When you treat politics like a reality TV show and put the media in the driver's seat, you treat it as such and you win.

372 In my case it is not Islamophobia - which implies an irrational fear of Islam - but rather simple disgust bordering on white hot hatred. I don't fear Islam - they are the worst fighters in the world. Every time Islam encounters the Armies of the non Islamic world - they lose. In WWII the Italians kicked Islamic ass. The Hindus regularly pound the Pakistanis into the mud. The Israelis - horribly outnumbered and surrounded - beat the Islamic countries like rented mules.

Islam is reduced to terror attacks because they literally have nothing else. They can't win any kind of armed conflict against anyone - because a culture in which everyone is lying to everyone else is hardly and effective fighting force.

Posted by: J.J. Sefton at June 29, 2016 08:44 AM (p4UlV)

No they aren't an economy killer. Up until about 50 years ago we've always had tariffs of some sort. Free trade among diverse countries is a utopian dream. It might work as a mental exercise, but in reality it fails. Let's say, the US made one item (the super widget) each year, that was made by one person, that we traded overseas and represented our entire economy. Then we had to import everything else. Would we have a healthy economy? An economist will look at the GDP number and tell you yes.

Smoot Hawley wasn't the reason for the depression. We had far less trade then and the change in trade was only a couple of points.

You can't cut the life out of those agencies. It would require congressional action. You could encourage China to institute those same agencies because some of them actually have value. But they're never going to do that.

China has a de factor tariff of around 50% since its currency is artificially kept 50% lower than where it should be. So slapping a 50% tarriff on Chinese goods would simply level the playing field.

Completely disagree. Before Smoot Hawley there were a number of tariffs that destroyed agriculture and then our automobile exports.

Remove the friggin' tariffs, open up markets and let producers compete. Tariffs are in effect taxes on consumers. They invite retaliation from abroad. You're not in command of your facts.

In fact, coincidentally, listen to Levin's opening monologue from last night. The history is there.

Once upon a time long ago, when I lived in NYC, I rented a car. I knew gas was like $1 cheaper in NJ, so before I returned the car I drove across the river to fill up. I just pulled up, started pumping, no big deal. And 30 seconds later this guy comes running out of the little office screaming no, no, no, stop, stop. And I'm like huh, what? No thanks man, I don't need you to pump for me, I'm goof. He was acting as if I'd just killed someone, in committing this horrible crime of pumping my own gas. It was kind of funny since I had no idea what the fuck he was saying (accent) and he was getting really upset that I wasn't listening to him.

483 And, if I'm reading the tea leaves correctly, the big money is betting the Pound will revert to normal and the Euro is going down, hard."

Agreed. EU equities are dragging a** behind GB.

It's almost as if a giant weight has been lifted from the GB economy...

484 My dog was old and didn't have any teeth left. I decided to SWAT him and put him out of his memory.

The funeral of a heroic police officer was today.
The force is most proud of his 33 confiscations of property from people never charged with a crime.
He also was a member of the SWAT team and specialized in killing peoples beloved pets.
His widow will collect on his pension that will pay her 103% of his active duty salary.

485 Insanity is built into Islam.

They keep screaming their god is the greatest. But their 'chosen' son - Ishmael - lost his birthright to a younger half-brother. Then there is Esau's lost birthright. They deny a human can ever 'know' any bit of their god, he is beyond this world yada yada yada... then when a righteous person of Islam dies and ascends that thread to face judgement, their god can still say 'nah, to Hell with you.'

Is it any wonder they have plenty of issues? They are Zathras with bomb vests.

487 The Italians used chemical weapons in Ethiopia, the Spanish used them in Morocco - the Spanish dropped mustard gas "candles" from airplanes onto hamlets and farmsteads.
I am not sure if the French used them at all, but they might not have wanted to.

Italians and the Spanish got mustard from the Germans who supposedly weren't making it any more.

Most of the small colonial bushfire wars in the 20's seemed to have used chem in some way. Except, I believe the Gran Chaco war between Paraguay and Bolivia.

488 >>So we do nothing and let China fuck us in perpetuity? That's a good plan.

We do some of you insist we either implement tariffs, which never work, or do nothing? Is this how you do business, either you let me do something stupid or I do nothing!

Businesses do deals every day around the world. They are forced to negotiate deals that are mutually beneficial or they don't do a deal. They don't just say, sure, bone me in the ass or I'll do something stupid.

We have an excellent example of tariffs implemented during Obama's term. Obama accused the Chinese of dumping tires in the US so he implemented a tariff on Chinese tires. The most comprehensive study I've seen said it worked! If you consider that at most the tariffs "saved or created" 1200 jobs (a dubious claim) and only cost US taxpayers about $1.1 billion dollars. Super.

Tariffs represent a fundamental manipulation of capital and resources. They don't happen in a vacuum and they don't come without consequences.

The reason we have so many bad trade deals is moron lawyers like Obama and his team have been negotiating them for decades. The choice isn't status quo or tariffs, the choice is status quo or putting someone in the job who understands how business actually works and letting them negotiate better deals.

This was one of Romney's biggest selling points. It should be The Donald's but he's off to a bad start. I'm hoping his rhetoric on this has a shelf life no longer than his muslim ban or some of his other dumb ideas.

489 Headline in a The Telegrpahs that will never see the light of day in any American publication:

"Trump has corralled the support of 33 per cent of Hispanic voters, a number that outperforms Mitt Romney in 2012 and John McCain in 2008"

So the "Build a Wall" guy is doing better with Hispanics than the "Amnesty for All" guy? It's almost as if Hispanics don't just vote blindly based on racial issues.

So weird.

Guess what? They have (or should have) a right to do what they want with their business. I believe it's called "freedom." You have a right to purchase from that company or another.

And maybe if we reduced all the regulations and labor costs that drive the cost to do business up, they wouldn't leave in the first place.

A lot of the working and voting hispanic immigrants hate watching illegals come, pay no price, pay no taxes, get tons of benefits, jump lines in front of relatives, avoid laws, avoid compliance of laws, and basically get to live free while certain members that a lot of the legal immigrants came to the US to escape, have not come here to terrorize these neighborhoods as well.

Trust me on this one, if they find a reason to vote for someone who might stop it they will.
Univision will have a collective freakout

Corruption. Payoffs. Obama is the Ronald Reagan of the NWO and the Democratic party. Obama would fit right in with EU and is most probably signed up for the same payola they are.

One thing they can't spin is that godawful, ear- splitting voice and horrible laugh.

That alone probably accounts for why Cankles McPantsuit's poll numbers aren't better. Who the F besides fat, blue-haired feminists, degenerates, and twinks wants to listen to that dreadful, scolding voice for the next 4 years?

500 Didn't the Italians use chemical weapons in Ethiopia?
Posted by: Anna Puma at June 29, 2016 09:55 AM (C6duO)

Yes they did. And they had their butts handed to them earlier in the either the late 1800's or early 1900's by the Ethiopians. Ethiopia isn't Muslim anyways or it at least has a large Christian population.

501 Hard to pull the wool over President Obvious' eyes

So the Iranians are propping up Assad rather than fighting ISIS on our side? And Russia too? What in the name of Tom Landry is going on here? Obligatory faux shocked face: O_O

Then I guess it's too bad Kerry already shot his mouth off and warned Assad he had to start transitioning out of power by August 1st or else ... or else ... hmmm, or else something would happen, but I've now forgotten what Kerry said. I'm sure Assad has too.
