Break It To 'Em Gently, Kid - a limericvk


I'm an animal husbandry overachiever
And I don't want to be a deceiver
The fact is it's inherent
I will have to tell my parents
That I fell in love with a Golden Retriever

27 It's funny that Trump allegedly mentioned Norway as where we should be getting out immigrants from. On a Dublin pub crawl a few years ago, I met a pretty cool Norwegian dude who worked for Google. He told me that his ultimate goal was to get a green card and come to America, but that it would be very hard to get. That made me realize just how broken our system is.

I'd better think this through.

Speaking of shoe less, one of the civil war accounts I read, the soldier telling the story said they took their boots off to march. Otherwise the boots would fall apart, and being a country boy, they were used to walking shoe less.

57 Even the Lefties who travel to these shitholes to try and help will admit that they are corrupt shitholes. The other than money aid we send to most of the places are confiscated by the corrupt authorities to be distributed as they see fit. That is why we should halt aid until we can get a better accounting of what is being done with it.

129 What an evocative painting. I like the Impressionist style background of grass and trees which sharpens the focus on the two figures. Riviere really captures the exhausted boy and, even more so, the affection of the dog. They are so sharp and realistic compared to the vague background.

Part of the power of this painting, for me, is the way it suggests possible story lines. I believe that's a mile marker stone to the right of the dog but it is almost obscurred by the grass. Is the boy an orphan treading a country lane on the way to a city? Or running away from abuse? Judging by his bare feet and ragged clothes, his situation is desperate and he has only one source of solace in his young life: the dog.

I find the work touching. It could be a scene out of Dickens.

JFK, Nixon, Clinton, they were nothing. LBJ was legendary throughout his life as having been one of the most vulgar, foulmouthed assholes that ever achieved political office in this country.

153 Ok, so let me get this straight:

-Some countries suck. This is obvious to everyone, including the people pretending to be outraged by Trump's comment.
-People from those countries often want to leave, as living in a sucky place sucks.
-But people are the main contributing factor to a place's suckitude, so by definition, some percentage of those people looking to leave themselves suck.
-We would prefer not to import the sucky people.

I really don't see the issue. The not sucky people are the ones that follow. the. rules. when they try to come here. And the ones that followed the rules are not in any way in the discussion when we're discussing DACA, by definition.

167 Here it is...


“Every hack in the business has used it in times of trouble, and it has even been elevated to the level of political mythology in a story about one of Lyndon Johnson’s early campaigns in Texas,” he continued.

“The race was close and Johnson was getting worried. Finally he told his campaign manager to start a massive rumor campaign about his opponent’s life-long habit of enjoying carnal knowledge of his barnyard sows.

“‘Christ, we can’t get away with calling him a pig-f****r,’ the campaign manager protested. ‘Nobody’s going to believe a thing like that,'” wrote Thompson.

“’I know,’ Johnson replied. ‘But let’s make the sonofab****h deny it.'”

The message is clear: For the smear campaign to work, a rumor doesn’t actually have to be true — it doesn’t even matter if it is.

In fact, sometimes it’s advantageous for dirty politicians to purposely spread an accusation so outlandish and filthy it can’t be believed — as long as it grabs people’s attention.

226 Many years ago I was listening to last night radio while driving and heard a Rabbi on the old Dr Drew show. His thesis was for all kids (especially Jewish) to understand they are unique to G-d and do not risk assimilating into the crowd. Then he talked about G-dly builders and evil builders. Evil builders used bricks, uniform, created by man, to create buildings usually used for evil purposes (Tower of Babylon, Slaves in Egypt building shrines to pharaoh, etc). G-dly builders used stones, created by G-d, requiring man to accept the shape, and work it into his overall design. Occasionally taking tools (and time and work) to chisel these stone into a new shape, but same stone. Does your society and government need bricks or stones?

258 The thing about the "shithole countries" statement is that also describes Ireland in 1848 and Southern Italy. I thought of the town in "Fiddler on the Roof" - it was a shithole! Hell, Norway wasn't wealthy in the 19th century - it was cold and isolated and had poor farmland so fishing - a dangerous occupation - was one of the only ways to make a living.

And a country doesn't have to look like Haiti to be a shithole. Prague is a gorgeous city, but under Commie rule it was a shithole because there was no freedom.

The thing is when our Euro ancestors left their shitholes and came here the country was expanding and needed a lot of unskilled labor - and there was no welfare system. They were not allowed to come here just because "that's who we are."

When masses of people from Europe were no longer needed the gates closed - until 1965.

We don't need a zillion unskilled people now.

323 Well, if we're talking shitholes.

Back in the day when the EPA was new, there was a small village near where we had a beach house on a chain of lakes. Turns out, this small village was using an isolated section of the chain of lakes as a septic system; dumping raw sewage into that isolated, undeveloped end of the lake where nature did what nature does. One species waste is another species food supply. The algae bloomed, the water plants grew, the carp grew, the bugs grew, everything grew until the EPA said the village had to stop dumping raw sewage and build a treatment plant and then dump the treated sewage somewhere other than into the lake.

I left the area long ago and have no idea what that end of the lake looks like now. Probably high end condominiums overlooking a picturesque water scene of wading birds, ducks and wild geese, and other wildlife.

How is anything ever going to change if it's racist to accurately describe something?

Is there anyone who would argue with a straight face that Haiti isn't a shithole?

Maybe, if everyone got together and agreed to the premise that Haiti is a corrupt, crime and violence ridden shithole then some progress might be made.

Trump should simply say that he stands on the side of truth.

467 re: $1000 bonus

There is a danger is pumping this up too much, in that it leads people to believe that it is indeed "only" $1000. But in reality it's $1000 plus the $2000 on average every family will save every year. Focusing on just that $1000 one time bonus minimizes the tax bill implications. Plus the biggest impact of all, the tremendous growth to the economy which will be worth several thousand dollars a year to everyone.

The same thing happened with the Bush tax cuts. I remember talking to someone who makes $200k+ and he said, WTF did Bush ever do for me he sent me a $600 check once. Of course over the course of 10 years post tax cuts, he probably saved $50K in taxes, but in his mind he just got that $600.

That was the check that everyone got when the tax cut bill passed. And Bush made a huge deal about it. And I think these $1000 checks will be like that $600 check.

It's like these dufuses dont remember what they wwere saying yesterday.

http://tinyurl.com/yd8jektx

Link is to obamawhitehouse.com archives

A sample:

Lawmakers extended the payroll tax cut for 160 million American workers through the rest of 2012, in addition to extending unemployment benefits that provide lifelines to millions of Americans looking for work, and President Obama signed it into law.

The thing is, $40 is real money for working families, as people all over the country told us. That money buys things like school lunches, the gas needed to get to work or visit ailing relatives, and co-pays for doctor visits and essential prescription medicines.

Fairbanks, Alaska: Pamela

$40 is 10 gallons of heating oil when the temperatures in winter hover in the negative numbers for months.

Phoenix, Arizona: Joseph

The $40 dollar paycheck for my family helps pay for gasoline to put into the cars.We live from paycheck to paycheck. And with the price of gas being so high it helps a lot. I feel that the politicans that don't want to continue with the extra $40 dollars need to put themselves in our shoes. Sure, if I was a millonaire I wouldn't worry about gas prices or $40 dollars, but I'm not. And with the gas prices so high, so are other items. Every dollar helps. So please consider allowing the $40 dollars to remain.To you it might not add up to much but to my family it helps a lot.

Beebe, Arkansas: Paul

$40 a paycheck is the gas it costs me to travel back and forth from seminary each week, as there are none in my local area. While there (in Memphis) I also lead a community chess program for 4th and 5th grade students in an under-privileged community. I am a retired USAF veteran on a minimal enlisted retirement wage, struggling to get by while I finish my education. Please don't take away my opportunity for education, service and future development.

Denver, Colorado: Phillip

Currently I am working two jobs in addition to being a full time student. I work as a server at the Cheesecake Factory and as a peer mentor for the federal program known as TRiO Student Support Services. Forty dollars means quite a few different things for me; food, rent, various bills, and my ability to be able to support non-profit organizations that rely on donations. This last year even making less than 25,000.00 a year I donated monthly to Greenpeace, and made one time donations to PAWS, Casa, and the African Community Center. There is no way that I could have made these donations without an extra forty dollars a month.

True, but Trump's real genius is this...

He says things that the average person agrees with. So what happens is, the average person thinks "I'm not a racist, but I agree that Haiti is a shithole and we don't need tens of thousands of Haitians and Nigerians and others pouring into the country."

From that, a person who previously identified with the democrats now finds themselves agreeing with Trump.

Not only agree with Trump, but knowing that if they voiced their true feelings, they would be labeled a racist too.

They don't like that.

536 Now we want Trump to feel totally handcuffed in what he says to others when he is in a private meeting. Yeah, right. "

Good point. Previous GOP (Bush, I'm looking at you) types would've, at the first hint of comment, gone on a redemption tour, begging forgiveness at every turn, whilst Dim leadership would've been whipping mercilessly.

President Trump fights.

644 This whole $hithole thing is frustrating. Granted if PDT said it, then it was an in-artful turn of the phrase. But it is clear that there are kleptocracies all around the world that can be described as such and that using the US as a pressure release valve for their starving, uneducated population is part of their $hithole policies.


But no Dem will ever allow that using the US as a dumping ground is part of the $hithole country's problem.

Dems always tell you how smaht they are, but they cannot even see that the problem that PDT was expressing in a uniquely PDT way is a real concern to your average American who has to actually live with the ramifications, who also see that allowing the S.H countries to export their problem is a problem for both countries.


If you want to see the effect of SH policies watch Andrew Zimmern from that food show eat his way from Haiti to D.R. people boiling garbage in pots and eating it "family style" off a hub cap with their fingers.

Yes, after the island suffered a bad earthquake. Remember the relief efforts from all the Hollywood types, the tv evangelists, etc.? This was during , I believe, Bush 42 reign, who proceeded to put HW Bush and Bill Clinton together in charge of world relief efforts. The two flew around to world asking for money, which the Clinton Foundation conveniently "escrowed" on behalf of donors.

During Trump's campaign, the Haitian gov came out and said that very little of that money was ever seen by the Haitians.

680 "This whole $hithole thing is frustrating"

Actually it's clarifying, and necessary. A big part of the dominant culture now believes in Political Correctness in thoughts, words, and deeds, and therefore no one is EVER allowed to say anything which would hurt anybody's feels, even if it is a truth that the vast majority of Americans believe in.

It is a corrosive, destructive element of the current culture, aimed at control, that is present in the background of every public conversation ever had by anyone in this country today.

Trump delights in aggravating the PC crowd, and in showing them that he can say anything he wants. It shows us who is actually on our side, and who is just a PC Apparatchik who wants to pretend to be "conservative", while he wants us to be controlled by our betters. (pathetic crypto-libs like Jim Geraghty)

This fight against PC control is the most fundamental fight in our culture. It's going to come up every time, in every issue, over and over, because it is always there, and because Trump will always fight it. It may be a frustrating fight, but its a necessary one.

He sure put the Dems in a bind. Their whole program is devoted to importing "refugees" from Third World hellholes by the millions without security investigations and inspections for diseases.

The people are very nice generally - but the government corruption defies description and it is the SOLE cause of the impoverishment there - and nothing else. Don't believe me? Look at it from the air ( I have flow over it many times now) the border between Haiti and the DR is extremely visible due to the arid, deforested and general destroyed nature of the countryside in Haiti. It is impoverishment on a huge scale . And the DR is not an example of an incredibly well run , non corrupt country either!
