The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

This should surprise no one. Rob Ford proved beyond a doubt that there is a market for populism in Canada. Forget all the stories we like to tell ourselves about how much wiser and calmer than our American cousins we are. Canadians are every bit as capable of lashing out at their governing class. Marcus Gee


Quote II

"We need to consider the gendered impacts of climate change on women, girls and children. I am proud that Canada is training up women negotiators so that we have more female voices around the table" Catherine McKenna


Quote III

But objecting to Farrakhan as a bigot overlooks the more basic objection that he's a fruitcake. Mark Steyn

*****


Bill Burr explains mansplains women's privilege. (NSFW-Language)


*****

First Rotherham now Telford. Telford, this could be the worst child sex ring ever in the U.K.

A brutal sex gang raped as many as 1,000 young girls over 40 years in what may be Britain's 'worst ever' child abuse scandal.

Girls in the town of Telford, Shropshire, were drugged, beaten and raped at the hands of a grooming gang active since the 1980s.

Allegations are said to have been mishandled by authorities, with many perpetrators going unpunished, while it is claimed similar abuse continues in the area, reports the Sunday Mirror.


Nope, the Amish aren't involved in this.

What is the biggest political scandal of all time? An argument can be made for the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI)

Former CIA Officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp says the reason for all the crime and treason at the FBI and DOJ all boils down to one thing – the Clinton's so-called “charity.”

Shipp explains, “Hillary Clinton was running and is running a global financial criminal syndicate. She was using these secret servers to conduct Clinton financial money laundering business."

"The shocking thing about that is all the former directors of the CIA that have come out to support her, from Clapper to Brennan to Morell to Robert Gates supporting her being elected, knew about this criminal syndicate. Comey was protecting it. Lynch was protecting it. Weissmann was protecting it. And that is the big why. What’s she got on these people? Are they financial ties? They had to be aware of this, especially the counter-intelligence units. We know it was hacked into by foreign intelligence services because it was just hanging out there. Hillary Clinton was running a secret server outside the Department of State for the purposes of laundering money through the criminal Clinton Foundation.”

The ONT Musical Interlude



March 12, 2001, Judy Garland's 'Over The Rainbow' was voted the Song Of The Century in a poll published in America. Musicians, critics and fans compiled the list by the RIA. The highest placed UK act was The Rolling Stones (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction in 16th place. The Beatles had 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' at No. 28. via thisdayinmusic.com


***



March 12, 2013, Bob Dylan was voted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters, marking the first time a rock musician had been chosen for the elite honor society. Officials in the Academy which recognises music, literature and visual art were unable to decide if Dylan belonged for his words or his music and instead inducted him as an honorary member like previous honorees Meryl Streep, Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese. via thisdayinmusic.com

Well, if this doesn't make you shake your head and say "Doomed, doomed" Probably nothing will.

The fight for gender equality must never rest, but there’s one important thing women have that men will never experience: the joy (and excruciating pain!) of childbirth.

But there are thousands of men online who are hoping it will one day be possible. In the meantime, they’re simulating baby bumps, labor pains, and drawing lots of fan art.

Student loan debt.


The ONT wonders how much this student is in debt for? Student barred from class for stating there are only two genders.

A student at Indiana University of Pennsylvania has been barred from attending a religious studies class required for graduation after pointing out that there are only two genders.

“Later this week I will be defending myself and my FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS in front of the Academic Integrity Board (AIB) of the Indiana Univ. of Pennsylvania (IUP) against allegations of Classroom Conduct violations,” Lake Ingle stated in a Facebook post, which was deleted after Ingle retained legal representation.

We all know Juan Williams is dyed in the wool lib. Is he an anti-Semitic racist to boot?

I am willing to cut any opinion meister a lot of slack, but the last straw for me came on Friday March 9, when Williams appeared live in-studio with Shannon Bream on her nightly program Fox News@Night. On Bream’s program, Williams defended Democrats who have cozied up to Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam.

Incredibly, on Fox News@Night, Williams also defended Farrakhan himself. The topic under discussion was the closeness of at least seven prominent Democratic politicians to Louis Farrakhan – in light of Farrakhan’s history of virulent anti-Jewish and anti-white rhetoric going back more than three decades. On March 5, the Daily Caller was the first to report the story, “Seven House Democrats Have Direct Ties to Notorious Anti-Semite,” the lead of which was

Leave it to a Canadian to use a piece of Mother Nature in an attempt to escape the RCMP. The Mounties always get their man.

Last Thursday, the CBC reported that a man seen floating down the Petitcodiac River on an ice floe had safely reached shore, despite having repeatedly refused to grab ropes thrown to him by rescue workers. The floe eventually got close enough to shore that he could jump off. He was greeted by paramedics who wanted to check on his condition, and by RCMP officers who wanted to know just what in de heck he was doing on dat ice floe dere:

OregonMuse claims he is innocent. The remainder of the AoSHQ staff highly doubts it.

An Oregon State University spokesman says the institution is trying to determine why a link on the school's old cheerleading and dance team website led people to a sex and swingers personals site.

On Friday, the school discovered that a message at the top of every page on the old team website, which was accessible through the university's site, informed readers to click a link to redirect to the team's new page. The team's current web address is www.beavercheer.com, but that wasn't the link on the old page.

The ONT isn't sure what Mr. D. Gillman did but hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Mrs. Gillman is our Genius Award Winner.

A Herriman woman now convicted of trying to arrange to have her ex-husband murdered — who was previously charged with seeking a second hit man while in jail — was charged yet again Friday with trying to hire a third hit man.

The stunning charges against Linda Tracy Gillman, 70, were filed on the same day a jury began deliberating her initial case. She was found guilty Friday afternoon of one count of criminal solicitation, a first-degree felony, but was acquitted of a second count.

10 Now this is fascinating: 1929 interviews with elderly folks. These are people who lived most of their lives in the 19th century. You generally only see interviews this old with movie stars or other famous people. These are regular folks from across the USA reminiscing in their regional accents. One guy was a member of the Whig Party!

From Jessica last evening:

"We had a fun double-date night with Joyce and Hubby. He fixed us a delicious dinner, and then we played a fun game of Skip Bo. For which I was the winner. Then Joyce and I played our traditional game of Backgammon. Although it was a close game, Joyce was the champ. WooHoo - Nice!!"

Thanks, Jess!

We talked with Joyce twice this weekend. Sounded good, but definitely sensing some slippage

Today was an Avastin/Carboplatin day, as well as a meeting with her primary onco, so Joyce and Hubby headed north.

[Horde: To my fellow Hordelings, thank you all in advance for your prayers and well-wishes for my sister and her family]

77 @70 Sad, but true. If Europe is to survive, it'll be the Magyar, Romanians, and - of course - the Slavic master race who do it. Won't be the first time, either.
--------------------

Unfortunately, those particular parts of Europe don't tend to do very well when the going gets tough. They tend to get torn apart (quite literally, as it turns out) by their neighbors on both sides.

Which, of course, is one of the reasons why those nations are trying to be nice to the US these days.

Wow. This shit never ceases to amaze me.

I have a real problem with Dr. Strangelove: it implies that the Russians are bumbling idiots and that to fear them you have to be a lunatic like General Ripper. But it did give us a very useful image - the paranoid obsessive nut who invents a fake cause (fluoridation) to be worried about and then feels he's a victim and uses that as a justification to lash out against the supposed enemy.

England has a class system, has had one since the Normans. The upper classes make out great. The middle class struggles. My grandfather basically beggared himself to get my dad into the school he'd gone to, and that I went to.

Because in England, if you fall out of the upper classes, you end up in the middle class; and if you fall out of the middle class, nobody cares about you. And "nobody cares about you" has some real-life consequences, like getting raped by a gang of Pakistanis.

Long story short - the girls who got gang raped were in that segment of society which has nothing to live for.

Actually this makes more sense than the reverse: women with this ability who envy men their lack of it. When it comes to the uterus, men are amputated, castrated, impotent. They have nothing remotely like it. I'd expect that they would be the envious ones, rather than women wishing they did not have this capacity.

121 Aaaaargh! Our Charter school just decided to show off ther OC street cred. As if the new diversity commit and all the endless blather about reaching out to minorities, immigrants, tolerance, bullying etc... wasn't enough (and is getting noticeably worse lately) I was sent a notice today about proper procedure for the National Student Walkout day, which the school is organizing and encouraging the students to participate

That was enough .I sent off a harsh letter to the principle about my kids being used as props for a political movement that the school is organizing for. I explicitly forbid my kids to participate or be pressured in anyway. Sent copies to both kids homeroom teachers. One, who I suspect of being a closet conservative , already responded slightly apologetically.

Might be time to give up on this charter school and go private. The learning environment is far better than the public schools we fled a couple years ago but I'm finding out is is just as PC. So f***ing discouraging. I'm thinking of contacting State Board of Education which has oversight but I suspect they are fully on board with this idiocy.

141 If there is anyone in England interested in stopping things like Telford, I for one think it's not the Muslim gangs who need to be directly targeted (unless an opportunity presents itself). It's the authorities. The judges, the politicians, the police supervisors--they are the ones who allowed this to happen. IF I were an angry Englishman planning a campaign of assassination, I would be shooting them or bombing their cars. Unless they feel their lives are in immediate danger, there is no reason to expect them to change these policies.

167 If there is anyone in England interested in stopping things like Telford, I for one think it's not the Muslim gangs who need to be directly targeted (unless an opportunity presents itself). It's the authorities. The judges, the politicians, the police supervisors--they are the ones who allowed this to happen



It's the Broward Cowards on a mass scale there. Decades. They are too far gone, I think. Good men have decided not to intervene. They have become cowards. Islam uses intolerance and violence, and it works. Examples are all over the EU and in history. London has an Islamic Mayor. It's the creeping crud. It has already begun in the U.S.

I'll say this. I have a good friend in grad school who is very far left, and an activist to boot. Well, I don't know about good friend, but we're on friendly terms. I've helped her on some of her research, she's given me tips on the job market, we stay in touch on Facebook...that sort of thing. She knows where I stand politically and I know where she stands, but we've never gone after each other on that stuff. I think there's an unspoken agreement that neither of us wants to have that kind of dispute, so we just don't.

I think it can be done, but it requires an active commitment on both sides to not let the political stuff spill over into your personal relations. Which isn't easy, obviously.

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

That's what the Socialist government does - it usurps and supplants the institutions that would have otherwise taken care of the individuals who needed help.

Actually, if you read the story, the local pastors were explicitly telling the cops "YOU NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS! Here is a list of girls who are being given drugs. Look into this!" And the cops did nothing.

The problem is that with this specific problem, your choices are either trust the authorities, or engage in vigilantism. And I'd be willing to be quite a lot of money that the gang involved in this had quite a lot of guns, while the local citizens had none.

If you look at the news coverage of women who try to hire hitmen, the problem is they aren't trying to hire hitmen, or even murderers. They talk to people who have a criminal background, but know the difference between being sentenced for burglary or even robbery, and being sentenced for first degree murder.
They're smart enough to not want to go to prison for the rest of their lives, so they rat out the person trying to hire them.

It happened over the years. Piece by piece. They kept capitulating to Islamic demands and allowed parallel societies. They bowed to threats and actions of violence. And eventually, we end up here. There is so much, much more going on over there that'd turn your stomach. There was the Trojan Horse paln to take over the schools, for one. But really, that is the tip of the iceberg.

Islam is the Religion of Pieces not only bcz they blow people and things up into pieces, but bcz piece by piece they take over communities, and schools, and housing and government, until they are the majority.

I saw the "playbook" once, by percentages, of how they gain control. No one should be surprised, it is the stated goal of their ideology. It is history. It is who they are.

How many genders are there Lake?

Two

And if the party says that it is not two but three...or more -- then how many?'

Two

The word ended in a gasp of pain. The needle of the dial had shot up to fifty-five. The sweat had sprung out all over Lake's body. The air tore into her lungs and issued again in deep groans which even by clenching her teeth she could not stop. Indiana University watched him. IP drew back the lever. This time the pain was only slightly eased.

How many genders, Lake?

Two

The needle went up to sixty.

How many genders, Lake?

Two! Two! What else can I say? Two!

The needle must have risen again, but she did not look at it. The heavy, stern faces of the academic review board filled her vision. The angry academics stood up before her eyes like pillars, enormous, blurry, and seeming to vibrate, but unmistakably of two genders.

How many genders, Lake?

Two! Stop it, stop it! How can you go on? Two! Two!

How many genders, Lake?

Three, Three, Three!

No, Lake, that is no use. You are lying. You still think there are two. How many genders, please?

Two! Three! Four! Anything you like. Only stop it, stop the pain!

Abruptly she was sitting up with an academic's arm round her shoulders

They're not even ruby color. I saw a show where they brought out the originals. When they made a pair that were actually ruby red the color just exploded on film, so they had to tame it down a bit with subdued shade of red that "looked" red on film. Was pretty interesting. They even showed the circular scratches on the soles from where she clicked her heals together.

By policy and planning. The UK got infested with communists and assorted social arsonists a while back and their numbers were not small. They got into ministerial and policy making positions. Their goal was to destroy England, eradicate it's "whiteness", blah blah blah. It was all done rather quickly and the UK woke up one morning and... bam. There had been a slowish progression of socialist monkeywrenching for decades, but that period of govt went into overdrive.

---
one may destroy a man who makes war upon him, or has discovered an enmity to his being, for the same reason that he may kill a wolf or a lion; because such men are not under the ties of the common law of reason, have no other rule, but that of force and violence, and so may be treated as beasts of prey, those dangerous and noxious creatures, that will be sure to destroy him whenever he falls into their power.

314 Every conservative I have met has been a bully. Who are some nice conservatives you have met?

Matt Salter, Freelance writer, dogooder, dork of many colors
Answered 5h ago

I'm a hardcore lefty. I also live in Texas and have spent most of my career working for nonprofits. That means a lot of red-state right winging. Not the nice, necktie, Laffer-curve, "fiscal conservative, social liberal" guys either. Nice conservatives don't run charities. They're comfy where they are. You want to do good in Texas, you need full-on deplorables. You need the churches, the phone trees, the mailing lists. They're the boots, or at least the sensible shoes, on the ground, knocking on doors and passing out leaflets and stacking donations til 4 in the morning.

Let's be clear. Philosophically, these people were opposed to my... everything. Hellbound from the haircut down. Tabletop gaming! I had friends at one workplace who loved and collected board games. Me too! Chat went swimmingly until I showed them the dice my beloved sister gave me for Christmas and they told me D&D is a tool of Devil worship. Chilled the conversation somewhat.

But I'm a dope-ass grantwriter, so they put up with me. That by itself is a shot in the gut to "conservatives are bullies." I spent years in evangelical conservative settings and was never treated poorly, beyond the usual office nonsense. It's tempting to say "well, you were making them money," but I wasn't. They didn't get to keep the money I made. The money I made went to strangers in desperate straits, people of different faiths, backgrounds, colors than the evangelicals I worked with. Those evangelicals a) put in 80 hour weeks to help them; b) put up with a walking billboard for every value they didn't have because he could contribute.

Then I lost my job unexpectedly. That comes up in nonprofit work, alas. Budget's always a shoestring. Still, it sucked. Last day, I was packing up and the woman next to me asked if I was leaving. I said yes. She asked if she could pray for me. I said sure. Do what you like on your own time, right?

Then she took hold of my hands.

Friends, I was not expecting that. I came up Catholic. I am now a Christian pantheist. Laying on of hands? Not a thing in any of that. At all.

And she prayed. No smug. No pity. Not a word of condemnation. Tears in her eyes, because she was worried about me. Praying, because that's what she could do in that situation. She believed, so she stood with me and tried her best to help.

I've never forgotten that. Don't think I ever will. My beliefs weren't hers. My faith certainly isn't hers. There is every reason to suspect I will live out my span and die without ever experiencing another laying on of hands. But this person used the most powerful tool available to her to be profoundly kind to me, at a time when I really, really needed it.

That's not the act of a bully.

So there's that.

Eygpt, Arab Spring, was when I first became aware of it.

Syrian refugees were from a much more modern, cosmopolitan society, so I'm not sure that it was widespread there...or even accepted as a norm.

But look, you have the recent case in Britian of the teenage girl raped by 5 different men in one hour. They know bcz of CCTV. From the pics I saw, I don't think the guys were even together as a group.

Then there was the girl raped by a man, waved down a taxicab, and then he raped her. And these are only the stories that got my attention, and made the news.

There is so much more. So very much more. I just don't go

========

With transplants you have to give the patients special drugs to prevent the immune system rejecting the organ, no? Imagine the risks that would create for a child growing in that uterus. The danger that the uterus would be rejected, the fact that the pregnant man's immune system is being hobbled and can't protect the baby from infection and would attack the baby otherwise. I suppose science could find a way around this... but you wonder if it's worth it.

Posted by: T


This is how it works with my sister in law and myself. She made liberal comments to me twice. Once had to do with illegal aliens, the other was Pence being "overly religious". Anyway, both times I rebutted her. She doesn't bring this stuff up to me anymore. It's like a truce.

It's a good thing also. She's one of those liberals who's all tolerant and pro diversity and all, but wouldn't get caught dead living in a neighborhood with low income minorities. She also made sure her child attended a school that had almost no welfare people, and the same will be true for her grandchild. I know too many liberals who are like this and I'm not above pointing it out to them.

When it comes to where they live and where they send their children to school, they are no different from republicans.

Uh, how has this particular quirk of human physiology eluded science? You have a bunch of warm liquid in your body. You suddenly expel it, and your body registers a slight drop in temperature. Brrr. You shiver, because your body thinks it's getting colder.

I've never put out a hit on anyone, but I sometimes watch true crime tv.
Also, summers, when I was in college, I worked in a factory where they had convicts working alongside us on the assembly line. Most of the guys who worked there were in for burglary, drugs, or maybe robbery. There is a huge difference between the really violent criminals, like murderers and rapists, and the burglars.

If you read the news items about women hiring hitmen, they know of some guy who served some time. So they approach him to kill hubby. The guy doesn't want to touch that with a ten foot pole, so he runs to the police and reports it. Burglary is 2 to 10, first degree murder is life without parole. They're stupid, but not that stupid.

463 So sad about Britain. For almost an entire year she stood alone against Hitler until he invaded Russia. At least then she had an ally shooting back, not well, but shooting back. Then six months later Japan declared war on her and the US. It wasn't until August of 1944 that the US finally had more troops engaged with the Axis powers than Britain and the Commonwealth had. Her decline into socialism happened rapidly after the war, and with it came political correctness. For a country that literally ruled the waves, I'm not even sure that she can sail a single aircraft carrier now. To me it's pretty tragic.

I've also watched him mess around with the doors at my new place, pushing them closed and trying to figure out how to open them again. Well, good luck with that, pal! The doors here have round knobs, rather than the lever-shaped handles at the old place.

The problem is that with this specific problem, your choices are either trust the authorities, or engage in vigilantism. And I'd be willing to be quite a lot of money that the gang involved in this had quite a lot of guns, while the local citizens had none.

489 A very yachty ONT greeting, Horde!

Nothing like seeing a one hundred and fifty foot class motoryacht on powering along, burning money at the rate of about 0.5 miles per gallon of Diesel.

Note the three jet-skis nestled into the forepeak. Yet, I don't see the launching crane to plonk 'em into the water, or retrieve them, after.

Some of you wondered who's driving the damn thing.

Obviously, the Captain is. From the Main Bridge, the glass-windowed enclosure b'neath the Flying Bridge, which is of course, un-occupied.

Smart Captain, manning the helm in Air Conditioned Comfort, and with ALL of the available tools of navigation at hand, and not just the abbreviated compliment of such which is available on the flying bridge.

Give you an idea about the size of that yacht. The first "big step" up the USCG Captain's Licensing scheme, is the "100 Ton Master" ticket.

That's not a big enough tonnage license for this particular yacht.

Another fun fact. Yachts like that are EASY to dock. You do it with a boat-shaped control on a joystick, and simply push or twist the "boat" in the desired direction(s), and the computer commands the bow and stern thrusters, as well as the main propellors...to gently nestle the boat up to the dock.

Makes it look like you really know what'cher doing there, too.

And it's the same system used by every major cruise ship afloat, now.

Which has really kicked the harbor tugboat industry right in the ol' tugs. Good thing that all kinds of tankers and freighters still depend on them, mostly being single screw hulls and all that.

All that said, just gimme a 52 ft. Irwin Ketch, and I'll be a happy sailor, indeed.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan made a moving plea for tech companies to take on hate speech at the annual SXSW conference in Austin, Texas, on Monday. During his talk, the mayor read racist tweets about himself.

Kahn warned that tweets like the ones addressed to him send a message to minority children that if they don't look a certain way or subscribe to the same establishment beliefs, they will grow up thinking there's no path for them in high-profile careers.

The London mayor offered a few recommendations. He suggested that Facebook and Twitter remove offensive content and misinformation faster. If they don't, he said, they should face fines.

Right outta their playbook.

Too bad he didn't explain the otherside...why he is getting these tweets. Ya know, the rapes, violence, intimidation.
For all we know, these are manufactured tweets by CAIR or one of those type groups. Or Kahn himself. But word violence and free speech are now worse violence than actual violence in 2018, and especially with Islam.

Britian is fast losing the little free speech they had left.

Here's the giveaway line:
"or subscribe to the same establishment beliefs"

In other words, Western Civilization's ideas of tolerance and integration are not something they should have to abide by.

I was actually looking at that. Some of them start at $69 per day. Thing is, once I am up there, I can be done in 5 minutes or less. Drive about a dozen screws, all done.
Another complication: driveway is dirt (bears well), but there is a semi-circular concrete sidewalk, right where I'd need to plant the lift.

My folding ladder goes to 17 ft.

By time you pay the UPS ground shipping for me to send it to you from Galveston, TX, you'll wish you'd just gone to WalMart, and bought one outright.

'Bout $99 to $107, last I saw.

Getcha one.

Barring that, scan your Tuscon or Phoenix Craigslist ads for "ladders". Betcha find one there that's the right blend of "good" and "cheap".

"Fast" though, is purely a matter of luck, clicking through the ads at exactly the right time, and finding "yours" before some other bass turd clicks on the damn thing, too.

Good luck!

By late 1940, the Home Guard had amassed 847,000 rifles, 47,000 shotguns and 49,000 machine guns of various kinds. With more than 1,682,000 volunteers, this meant that 739,000 men were unarmed. There was little improvement in June 1941 when Churchill wrote to the War Office saying that "every man must have a weapon of some sort, be it only a mace or a pike".

The nice thing about the feet on the Werners is you can tilt them out so they are straight up and down and then spike them in the dirt. Of course, that won't work if you have only concrete to work with, but many times with houses you have a choice of setting them on the sidewalk or on the lawn.

No rearward procedures for 10 years so yea. Versid was the drug the gave me for sedation. 20 second after it was in my IV the walls started to move. Like if you stood in front of a backdrop in movie and ran in place. Couldn't talk to well until it wore off. My throat has a lump in now. I was gagging even though I was sedated. I'm glad its over.

602 Tallest extension ladder I've climbed for work.

Back in the '80s.

Forty foot extension ladder. Tilt wall construction, caulking between the erected panels.

Did a day's work on that, and told the company owner. "Manlift, scaffold or find someone else, I'm not doing that again."

He paid for the rental on the manlift, thereafter.

Pro-Tip.

Forty foot extension ladder is beyond the stuff of nightmares.

I think you give 'em too much credit. I think they're no different than here.

I think there's a certain brand of person - most really - that consider themselves "real smart". They like to believe, if they just make the smart decisions, the odds of this Rape Ring shit happening to them is real small. Smaller than the chances of getting caught doing anything about it. So - they keep quiet. And if they run out of luck ... oh well. Life goes on. Think of the legal ramifications of going to jail, after all. Best let the police sort it out. Or not sort it out.

Me ? I got alot of nice shit. But I just don't care. Something like Rotherham happens to one of mine ... I couldn't live with the guilt of letting it go by.

So why not get even ? And at that point, why would one ever stop ?

An individual, a Cell of One, coordinating and communicating with no others, here is an unstoppable force.

Stealth, discretion, dedication to the gathering of intelligence, and the wisely considered and well planned action based thereon.

And then wait till "again". Months, if need be.

Do it again, to an entirely different pattern, timing, target and purpose.

Now, imagine a million motivated INDIVIDUALS, doing much the same.

Mayhem, multiplied by Un Predictiblity.

Damn, okay, so I got it wrong.

I've seen so many of similar Astroturf ads on CL, especially back when BLM and Antifa, were the Hot New Thing.

Which is why I went to CL to look at the ads.

Y'all would be amazed at how often the Left posts there, to find "activists" to earn $$$ per hour, to "protest" (be photo fodder) at a given event.

Score that one against me, of course.

In the bigger picture though, I'll always win on that bet.

Drudge has a link to the Hillary video; left column, top.

I watched it carefully a few times. Each time she slips she seems to have placed her left foot on a part of the stair that is heavily worn and sloping at perhaps 20 degrees.

However, the fact that she is initially escorted by a reasonably large &##8; strong man, is clearly walking with deliberation and watching where she steps, tells me that she's not sound. How could she not see the wear on the step?

After the first slip, another man assists her, and she takes the next step or 3 with careful deliberation and both feet on each. She clearly kicks off her sandals on her own.

Her inability to see the danger on the steps, coupled with her clear hesitancy to descend, tells me that she is not fit.

Perhaps she has minimal balance, depth perception issues, bad vision ... yeah, WE dodged a bullet.

640 Still taking prayer requests into the small hours. Email is in my nic and it is not a link. It is merely something that you can hover-over to find the email in the bottom-left corner of your screen.

I'll be taking your requests for about another hour, as I am getting sleepy. Please let others know that I need to be updated by email.

If you copy and paste others' prayer requests and send them, I'll gladly oblige.

I've been told that the phrase, "I'm just another guy with an email." is an insult and not a simple statement of humility.

I will henceforth stop using that to describe myself.

Perhaps "I'm a simple man with a calling." would be better.

Curse not the deity. It its stead, find praise. Raise others to be amongst you and stand tall amongst the masses.

When I was a kid, I was an early riser, much to the dismay of my parents. I'd watch those totally non-PC old black and white 'B' and 'C' westerns. I also watched the farm report.

I miss those old black and white westerns. Good guys vs. bad guys with the bad guys always losing. Now kids have the lesson of bad people winning, or at least not going to the hoosegow for their crimes. Sad. Any wonder why kids think the way they do? Today, as long as you're rich enough, or connected, or have the support of the fake news media, crime pays unlike that old chestnut I learned, 'crime never pays'.

It's the main reason why I know examples must be made of the political lawless in our present world: For the children. Rule of Law and equality under that Rule of Law is a necessity in a civil society. It sucks being a dinosaur and still believing that as too many current examples abound proving otherwise.
