Stupid Jerk ONT

Not feeling it tonight guys, I had some stuff happen at work that I'm not real happy with. I'll try to pull some stuff together like this stupid jerk chicken.

Stupid Jerk Romney


Romney’s Entire Career Has Been About Punishing Republicans For Voting For Him

Romney is an “inveterate chameleon” whose political opinions are not founded upon any transcendent principles but based solely upon what he perceives as capable of granting him the most approval from DC sycophants.


He attempts to portray himself as a moral bulwark, but as the above shifts in opinion indicate, many of his political leanings seem to be more a product of self-interest than of genuine moral clarity. In the coming days, he will be paraded around by the media as the model Republican for all the reasons GOP voters increasingly dislike him. Contrary to the media’s deification of Romney as the only principled figure within the GOP, it’s ironically all politics to him. No principles.

Nailed it.

Was Mitt Romney’s vote the fulfillment of a Mormon prophecy?

While I'm sure Romney views himself as a staunch moral crusader (when in fact he's one of the least principled politicians in the country, see the quote from the first article above), the fact of the matter is that Constitutionally, his vote was meaningless. Vote convict, vote acquit, abstain...it doesn't matter. His vote wasn't the deciding vote in any way, shape or form. Save the Constitution, hanging by a thread? Please. Feed your ego, roaring through your head is more like it.


Stupid Jerk Media


The media love anti-Trump ‘Republican strategists' and 'experts' because the media love drama

Non-Binary Ben had this to say about the SOTU:

Now I don't dislike Ben as much as the boss does, and I give him credit for at least going to hotbeds of liberal brainwashing and engaging the SJWs, but come on, this is stupid. As much as I think that it would be a better world if the SOTU was still delivered by courier to the Speaker, that's not the world we live in, the SOTU is a once a year, media circus event that guarantees Trump a wide audience nationwide. If he were to announce that he was going to give an important speech March 3rd on opportunity scholarships, followed by a speech April 15th on tax cuts and one May 9th on banning late term abortions, how much press do you think he would get? Either none or carefully crafted negative press. Nobody would carry these great speeches, nobody except those in attendance would hear them. Trump's Twitter account is his way of living inside the media's OODA loop, and the only way he has of cracking the media wall that surrounds him. I'm sure that Ben would prefer a president who adopts W's “lie back and think of the dignity of the office” approach to being gang raped by the media, Ben's the high school debate club type, where everybody gets their turn to deliver measured responses. Unfortunately, we don't live in that world anymore, this is a back alley knife fight and “With respect to the honored gentleman, I disagree” gets you nothing but 6” of steel in the belly. The media created, if not Trump, then the demand for someone like Trump. Until the MSM is destroyed utterly and completely, no other type of Republican president will accomplish anything, no matter how “nice” a guy he is.

What an amazingly lucky coincidence for the gang!

Massive MS-13 bust: Officials charge 96 members in gang takedown

And they were smart enough to charge them with a crime that isn't subject to New York's tiptoe through the tulips bail process. Still, the gang is becoming active in the county where I live, including a presence at the high school down the street. I'm not thrilled about that.

Stupid Jerk Clickbait


U.S. States Ranked by Their Food

Can't really argue with Maryland at 15, that's respectable, our crabcakes alone earn us that. Also, the 1 and 2 of California and New York seems right if you don't mind stepping in a street full of shit or getting robbed by a newly bailed out criminal on your way to dinner. What do you think of where your state ranked?

Stupid Jerk Brutalist Architecture

Will the White House Order New Federal Architecture To Be Classical?

I think this is a fabulous idea, just about every government building built since 1960 looks like an abortion. Still, I'd go one further. I am a big supporter of all government buildings being built in the neoclassical style, complete with a labyrinth containing a Minotaur. All bureaucrats must enter through the labyrinth every day.

25 Ok, I watched My Main Man, My Dog, Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States, make his statement about his acquittal.

Good. It was a broadside, and it was grateful to the right people. And I hope from listening to his words and tone, that he takes counsel from his Jewish daughter about the very first chapter of the Pirke Avot, where it says:

"Beware the ruling authorities, as they befriend a man only in their own interests; they appear friendly when it's to their advantage, and will not stand by him in distress."

59 Willard Romney is an example of what sometimes happens to handsome men.

He most likely was always treated very well by teachers, elders, schoolmates, colleagues. With some this creates an inflated sense of "being just a little bit better."

Everyone knows someone like this. the National Honor Society, class president type.

Not every handsome man succumbs to this. But Willard Romney clearly did.

He absolutely believes he is America's Savior.

Sad.

Being one of the most average-in-every-way men you could ever envision, I feel sorry for the fucking shitstain. Sort of. Well. Not really. He deserves all the scorn he is currently receiving.

Freshest seafood I have ever had prepared for me, was in Homer, Alaska.

A boat literally unloaded some of their catch to the chef, who took it down the two-lane road to his little restaurant, maybe a few hundred yards away, and then his wife/girlfriend sat down at his computer to create the Fresh Fish of the Day list. He took the fish into the kitchen.

It was on my plate in less than an hour.

Even when I catch my own, I can't get it to the plate that quick.

I was just thinking about gashtel soup today, how the private Christian high school that I attended has an annual auction on the Thanksgiving weekend to help square up the books, and how a pound of gashtel noodles from [local Mennonite] Church Women's Missionary Society might start bidding at $10 going to $15.

What's the big deal, exactly? He spent 85% of the time praising his team, and heaping praise at that. The rest wasn't exactly vicious. He was mean about the main coup plotters but that's it.

Oh, he said it was bullshit? Oh, he called them "Top Scum?"

Quelle Horror. It was a good speech. He was grateful and pleasant to his side and heaped some scorn on his enemies and made some threats that I hope come to fruition, but this wasn't exactly the congeniality crisis the press has been making it out to be.

The all dem legislature is talking about filling the holes in their dream budgets where they get to direct all the money in by taxing carbon dioxide by taxing fuel.

The nice thing is that such sales taxes are not subject to the state rebate law on income tax. This year the rebate will be 17 % of last year's income tax liability.

The law limits how much income tax can increase year to year so it grew lots last year.

I would be okay with this, but I have a counter-offer: there are no restrictions on architecture. One year after the building is opened, ten people from each state will be randomly selected from the jury pool - 3 urban, 3 suburban, 4 rural - and asked to judge the building. Binary judgement - I like it or I don't.

If 251 or more of those 500 people don't like it, the architect is delicensed and the people authorizing the design are all fired.

153 ..Freshest seafood I have ever had prepared for me, was in Homer, Alaska.

A boat literally unloaded some of their catch to the chef, who took it down the two-lane road to his little restaurant, maybe a few hundred yards away, and then his wife/girlfriend sat down at his computer to create the Fresh Fish of the Day list. He took the fish into the kitchen.

It was on my plate in less than an hour.

Even when I catch my own, I can't get it to the plate that quick.

Rainbow Trout, directly from the hook, to one of the South Vietnamese Boat People our church group took backpacking in the High Sequoias. Ferguson Lake, 1975.

That South Vietnamese had the fished scaled, gutted, breaded and into the oil in the cast iron skillet sitting over a small campfire. About two to three minutes per fish.

He was cookin' 'em as fast as we could pull 'em out of the lake. Lunch was a dozen and a half fish for the ten of us.

We continued to catch more fish, the whole three days we were camped out up there. Nothing like using what snowbanks had survived in the shade, even in late July, as the "Fridge" for the accumulated fish.

I've yet to find a restaurant as good, and damn sure not one that could serve a fish as fresh.

But... But... Thanks to Eromero and his lovely bride, with whom we enjoyed a delightful dinner at Katie's Seafood Restaurant here in Galveston.

New place, directly next door to Katie's Seafood. That's where the fleet of fishing boats unloads their catch, which promptly gets iced down.

And some of which goes to their restaurant, next door.

Y'all gotta try 'em, if you're ever in Galveston.

And Eromero? I owes ya one, BIGLY. I'll trust there's a good steakhouse in your area?

>Oregon is so much more than bitter IPAs and granola. Like Washington to the north and California to the south, the Beaver State maintains a year-round farming industry and locals love to eat local.

OK, that's kind of reasonable.

>It shares many culinary traditions with Washington, and game meats like moose and elk are big here.

Moose? WRONG! Moose are extremely rare in Oregon. From a family that eats all kind of game meat, and we've never had moose. Plenty of deer and elk (yum) though. Nice fact finding.

176 So over 100

I was listening to Larry O'Connor today and got rather depressed at the comments from the much vaunted Andrew McCarthy. In my opinion, good old Andy McCarthy is still a true Blue Deep State operative at heart. I offer the following as a rather scary insight into straight shooter McCarthy's true thoughts on the rights of mere citizens!

My takeaway (not a verbatim transcript) was that Larry asked rather obvious questions about blatant violations of law in filing evidence against citizens (e.g. Carter Page) and the belief that the offending DoJ officials should be punished severely. McCarthy said well, this sort of thing happens all the time in trials when the prosecution team can be shown to have made an error in the accuracy/truth of the facts that the charges are based on. Then he said BUT neither the prosecuting attorney nor the investigators are EVER brought up on charges themselves for malfeasance. He then said that if prosecutors/investigators knew they were subject to prosecution for a bad investigation, they would always take the safe course and do nothing rather than risk their careers by taking a chance.

After I stopped screaming at the radio, I was so infuriated that I shot the radio and then had a Russian Imperial Stout and cigar on the back porch.

Maybe I am a just misguided irritable kulak, but I am not a fan of unfettered sovereign immunity, and I found McCarthy's comments rather disturbing as it sure seemed to me that he had no problem if the police investigators or the prosecuting attorney did not care enough to have "their own skin in the game" even though they had the ability to use the massive power and resources of the State against an "innocent until proven guilty" peasant!

I still think he serves a purpose for people curious to hear a difference in opinion. The key is, to make sure people don't stop with him.

A good buddy of mine was slowly brought to our side by our conversations and ultimately? Shapiro. He's starting to understand why I can't stand the fucker but I appreciate what's he did.

Andy is a prosecutor and, to borrow a phrase, prosecutors pick a target, freeze it and work to destroy it.


Anything done to further that destruction is justified, you see, because their targets are "criminals."


Very early in the Russia hoax investigation, you heard Donald Trump likened to a mafia boss.

In fact Comey, et al, used that very same language to describe him.


And that's how the investigation was conducted, they worked it like they were taking down a mafia boss.


Adam Schiff, when he parodied the Ukrainian call, essentially recast Trump as a mafia boss in his rendition.


To these bastards thinking, anything done to take down the mafia boss was justified.


And that's how these savages are justifying what they did.


There really needs to be an epic retribution visited upon these people.


Pray justice rolls down like a cleansing rain because if it doesn't, if they get away with what they have done, then no Republican President or politician is safe.

So, I love that expression.

I was at a hardware store once and there was some problem ringing up my order and the girl had to call her manager up to help. During the delay, we got to talking and it came up that I had graduated recently. She asked what I studied and so I told her "TV and radio broadcasting."

She said, "I could totally see that! You have a great radio voice!"

I didn't miss a beat and said, "Thank you! I have a face for it, too!"

She turned beet red and immediately said, "I didn't mean it that way!"

I was only able to hold about 5 seconds before bursting out laughing.

Also, the Oregon Legislature used to meet once every two years. The Democrats argued that there had to be a short legislative session in off years, to handle minor housekeeping and administrative items.

Now, all the worst bills (like the carbon tax) are now proposed during the short session, since debate can be limited during the short session.

When you point out that substantive bills were not supposed to be proposed in the short session, the D's response is: "You f***ed up - you trusted us."

386 354 So do the voters in Oregon get to vote on increased gas taxes or a carbon tax, or is this crap just shoved down their throats?

That's why it will be passed as an "emergency" bill in the Oregon legislature - a regular bill could be referred to the voters, where it will be voted down (as Washington has done - twice).

All important bills in Oregon are now "emergency bills", specifically so the voters can't vote on them.

Posted by: hogmartin at February 06, 2020 11:01 PM (t+qrx)


Okay, kids, here's the deal. Alaska is big, like really big, and covers lots of territory, time zones (except we picked just one, for convenience), and options abound.

Southeast is Seattle-north, without the lousy politics and needles in the street. Ketchikan is relatively big, Juneau is a political rathole.

Southcentral is, well, central, so it has lots of people (about 285,000 in Anchorage), is easy to get to, but also has lots of mountains, wilderness, ocean, etc. Mild climate, between about -10 at the worst to about 80 at the highest.

Western Alaska is barren and rugged, with plenty of wildlife, fishing, swampy tundra, and the like.

The Aleutians? Go read The 1,000 Mile War. No trees, lots of active volcanoes, windy, but lots of good fishing and crabbing. If you don't like the weather, wait 15 minutes.

Central Alaska is both cold and hot, rather dry, lots of moose and bears, plenty of big rivers and pothole lakes. Lots of dog mushing, plenty of wide open spaces.

North Slope is majestic but cold as hell, no trees, all tundra, polar bears, musk ox, and in the summer the sun does not set. Not once.

Black flies are an issue in Central and North Slope, not so much in Southcentral. We mostly have mosquitoes, and those have declined over the years.

No snakes, anywhere. No big spiders, just nice polite little ones. No raccoons, no obnoxious loudmouth asshats, and only the occasional California lawyer. Anchorage is about 15 minutes from paradise in any direction.

(which last November, earned the dubious distinction of electing Julie Briskman to our Board of Supervisors with a crapton of outside money, along with a Soros Commonwealth's Attorney. Briskman is the woman notable for flipping off the President while riding her bicycle. Am contemplating attending public comment to ask Flipper if she was chewing gum at the time, too).

All the boys involved here, victim, shooters, accessories after the fact, were "unaccompanied minors".

The boy was apparently killed for not responding properly to gang recruitment.

Posted by: tcn in AK at February 06, 2020 11:18 PM (vVOK2)

Well they must be pretty good I would think. People were talking pretty low as if they sensed it could get loud in there, and there was no problem hearing low volume conversations. I would think it would be brutal to play music in there because it would reflect off of everything.

461 Good evening.

Don't ask me why, because I can't understand it myself, but I've been listening to Stryper nearly all day. I listened to their newest album, God Damn Evil, three times today.

THREE! FUCKING! TIMES!

It's ridiculously fun to listen to. They play with a few different styles, the album has good hooks and really excellent drumming and Michael Sweet can fuckin' *sing*. At 56 he sounds better than he did in his early 20s.

Highly recommended.

Even if it was a scam at the time due to inaccessability if it was a real sale, I'd be sitting on my own property instead of renting.

Most of the summer Alaska cruises start out of Seattle.

If you do this, plan to get here a day early, and the deplorable Morons of the Horde can certainly wash up, change clothes, and look moderately respectable to welcome you and hubby to some hospitality.

We would be honored.


There is also a cruise up the Columbia River in the summers, too. It starts out of Portland. Definitely warmer than the Alaska cruises.

meh.

Points for giving the characters a character arc each. And for not going LGBQwrty. And for doing well with Gotham.

And Huntress's butt gets ***** stars out of five.

I didn't mind that the Birds kick @SS because, you know, Gotham.

What took me out of the movie was Ewan MacGregor's villain character. An insecure male who doesn't deserve to be the alpha. This worked with Dorian in "The Mask" - because Dorian (the low-level lowlife) got the mask and became a supervillain, just when it looked like he was going to lose everything. Doesn't work with Ewan; Ewan is supposed to be a crime boss.

See it on redbox. Oh, and with closed-captions if, like me, you can't follow people with squirrel voices talking too fast.

=======

So, piecing things together here...

Her campaign staff has its own staff, which includes "minorities." The campaign staff created a toxic work environment for these minority staffers -- due to America's legacy of racism and oppression.

But what it comes down to is that Elizabeth Warren's campaign staff beat up on minority staffers.

541 Skyline Chili is just gross......

*shrug*

I have no doubt it's an acquired taste. I grew up with it, with Empress and Gold Star and Skyline all competing. The "spicy sauce" is usually Tobasco, it really should be Frank's (because Frank's started in Cincinnati) -- but I've put Sriracha on it and that was good, too.

eh, in 1912 Oswald Spengler, in "Decline of the West", predicted all of it in quite exacting detail. His predictions of the course of 20th/21st century culture get more and more accurate as time goes by. We're about at the point where he predicts the Democracies to finally collapse, but then we'll experience a period of relative calm as we move into the Imperial stage. Empire always presides over the collapse of the civilization. And then, after 500 or 600 years, some new culture will arise and start putting the pieces back together again.

Luckily we won't be around to see all that - and we're very lucky that we're at a relative peak in civilization that doesn't come around very often, historically.

Idiots on the commentary. Using the logic of the scene, you don't survive in prison admitting you're "scared" of something. So he answers the guys false dichotomy by sitting down and showing him he's not afraid--and further more he's not afraid to say the other to his face.

602 Problem with the 1st generation NSX tires, were quite literally, you had to buy a "Left-Front" tire for the left-front of the car, and etc., all the way around.

Same with any high-performance car set up with different size front and rear wheel/tire combos, *when* rolling on Uni-Directional tires.

Ya can't take 'em to the shop and have your tires "rotated" to even out wear, either.

The left-side tires can't be mounted on the right side of the car, and vice versa.

The body of the tire under the tread, was wound around the mold in a very specific pattern and matrix, so that tire would bend and flex in compliment to the car's suspension, down to the specific corner and rotation when moving forward.

Fast forward nearly 30 years.

Tire change on your Bugatti F-1? Yeah, the car has to be shipped back to Italy, where they do the tire change on specialized equipment. Last I heard, that price tag was approaching $30k, for the shipping and re-shoeing and return.

But ya want the REALLY expensive tires?

Try those thirteen ft. high donuts on the Open Pit Mine dump trucks.

Couple of those tires will buy a very, very nice house.

Take into consideration the D candidates are coping with and much more, shall we say sensitive, staff.

I mentioned this recently: I believe the staff members of these candidates are a huge Chink
in the armor, and that's very good for us.

Imagine the white staffer telling the non-white subordinate staffer what to do. Oh the triggering!
And the non-homo staffer using the wrong pronouns!

633 > Is Alaska considered flyover country when you have to go way out of your way to fly over it?

Well, you're gonna be flying near it if you go to Asia from the west coast, anyway.

Passenger planes don't always stop here for refueling any more, as they used to, but every bit of air cargo from Asia to the United States passes through ANC. It's the fourth-busiest cargo airport in the world, after Hong Kong, Memphis, and Shanghai-Pudong.

Presidents, popes, and such people often visit 'cause it's on the way, as it were.

Washington would be slightly better politically, and Idaho is cold in winter, hot in summer, and far away.

My dream is that the D's nominate Bernie, and Trump takes Oregon (Trump lost Oregon by just ten points the last time). If Bernie is the nominee, I'm going to devote a lot of effort to electing Trump, just to see the heads of the Portland leftists explode, if Trump wins Oregon.

Now do an article on 'pizza' or 'pie'. You get a pie, or you get a slice, but you never get pizza.

And that clam pie thing is real. I've had it at two of the oldest pizzerias (notice that 'e') in the City, Lombardi's and Arturo's. Prefer Arturo's. Lombardi's got prissy when we asked for lemons; Arturo's was like, sure, and gave us a big side of wedges. Customer satisfaction is always important with a good restaurant.

If, as was claimed, he indeed was offered the position of Defense Minister for Ukraine, he should be court martialed out of the Army, stripped of U.S. citizenship, and dumped unceremoniously in Kiev. A person with questionable loyalty to the U.S. deserves no position in our security apparatus.

That he was John Bolton's hireling suggests questionable loyalty on his part, too.

You can take it one of two ways:

1) Brutalism was about destroying the beauty of western classical architecture (and art deco, please God give me back art deco) to replace it with things of ugliness in order to destroy the western spirit. Commie bastards.

2) The architecture itself is a commie plot to grind you under the heel. To cower you with it's blunt and ugly skylines. To force your soul to submit to the will of the government. Commie bastards.

On those rare days when we have snow the management would issue a 'don't come in' call to non-essential workers. On one occasion when I came in before they issued that call they had me go a pick up essential workers (control room staff). The problem we have here is the county has no snow removal equipment. So they send out road grading equipment to plow the roads. All that does is turn a light snow into pack ice.

854 "Illinois at number 5. Why? Hot dogs and deep dish pizza. "

When Little VIA graduated Boot Camp we went to Great Lakes for the Pass in Review.

Did the Chicago style hot dog at a rather well known local Hot Dog eatery.

And we did the famous Chicago deep dish pizza at another well known restaurant.

I have no reason to believe that these were not excellent examples how these two famous foods are supposed to be.

Both left us with a sort of 'OK, that's what the fuss is about?' kinda feeling.

I could eat them agin.

I doubt if I would travel more than a mile in order to have either.

And could go through the rest of my life without having either one again, and not feel as if I am missing anything.

915 OK, I was reading just a few years ago that the Great Lakes were in danger of "drying out" because of global warming and that would endanger the fresh water supply of 10s of millions of people.

This morning on yahoo news there is an article about people worried about the record high levels of water in the lakes destroying their property and it is due to global warming.

918 Has anybody asked the Democratic candidates if they will respect the outcome of the upcoming general election?

Or will they continue the long Democratic temper tantrum of the last three plus years?

922 Global warmening was going to melt the glaciers which leads to rising water levels.

Or it would evaporate everything, leading to falling water levels.

Probably both. Leading to a dangerous pattern of stasis.

I remember back in the 80's there were record high levels causing massive erosion and loss of lakeside homes. I don't recall if that was due to global warming or global cooling.

926 Isn't it delightful that Pelosi will hold up the peoples' business so that she can pursue a personal vendetta against Trump whom she says she hasn't spoken to since October.

Spray laminate. Two cans should do it.

932 855 Max DeNike is a longtime newspaper journalist and California native who loves the outdoors and homemade food.

Max is wearing a fucking douche hat and is pushing about 250. When it says he likes the outdoors it means getting out of his parents basement.

Didn't even need to look him up to know that - I knew by simply reading the article and looking at his name. The article screams "Coastal Leftist Retard" - i did guess at the fat f*ck part. But it wasn't much of a guess, really.

937 > Now I don't dislike Ben as much as the boss does...

You should. He's an unlikable, irritating little putz who thinks quick thinking on your feet in a debate (which he is, granted) is the same thing as wisdom.

And your point about high school debate teams is right. Conservatives like Ben we have had in abundance since National Review was founded in 1955. Liberals want to win power; conservatives want to win the debate.

Let's win them both, but if we have to lose one, let's lose the debate.
