The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

Smug. Out of touch. Elitist. Condescending.

And vile...we mustn't forget vile. Because the hatred that oozes out of her every botoxed and surgically tightened pore makes me wish for the simpler days of Hillary's "deplorables." What a disgusting and dismissive comment this detritus from both coasts has made, apparently without any self awareness that maybe, just maybe, slipping the mask (two masks nowadays) off and letting the twitterverse see her hatred of all things American wasn't a good idea!

Setting aside the fact that she is dumber than a bag of gravel...does she not understand that we have 50 states, each represented by two senators, and some of those states are small? Like for instance Vermont (smaller than WV!), represented by her landsman Bernie Sanders. Should he not be allowed to vomit out his socialist blather and try to move America forward to the gulags that he and she seem to desire?

MiddlerBitch.jpg

Too bad for West Virginia that they aren't homosexuals in the bath houses having multiple sex partners and spreading lots of diseases, ending up of course with AIDS. What? Oh dear Bette supported that behavior...she is proud of the role she played!

Despite the way things turned out [with the AIDS crisis], I'm still proud of those days. I feel like I was at the forefront of the gay liberation movement, and I hope I did my part to help it move forward. So, I kind of wear the label of 'Bathhouse Betty' with pride.
Imagine being proud of something that led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people, and infected thousands of innocents like hemophiliacs, whose lifesaving blood products were contaminated because of people like Bette Midler who insisted that homosexuals be allowed to do absolutely everything uninfected people do, in spite of the catastrophic AIDS rate among them.

So screw off, you disgusting, murdering harridan. And keep your mealy-mouthed apology. Shut your flabby trap and keep your comments about America within your echo chamber of America-hating celebrities and their supporters in the blue enclaves on the coasts.

Think Schumer didn't know that?

Best reading of this is that Schumer is an idiot who thought he could browbeat Manchin, who represents a state that went 40% for Trump just last year, into voting for a bill that would materially harm WV in very big ways.

That's a best case reading of what Schumer did.

Schumer was never that close to 50 votes. Sinema probably didn't want to do it but could have been forced. But then there's Kelly, Warnock, and Masto, all up for tough re-election fights next year who didn't really want to vote for BBB if their victories next year couldn't be assured.

Manchin was the scapegoat in such a way that WV will definitely re-elect him next time.

that pretty much says everything you need to know. if it was HALF way decent and a minor fig leaf, they'd have at least half a dozed cucks voting for it.

That's only because they were foolish enough to try this on a split Senate. If the Dems had 51, they'd have gotten a couple of Republicans to join in for "bipartisanship" since it is already inevitable. This is so wildly unpopular, though, that the Republicans (sadly to them, I'm sure) have no choice but to vote against.

"I tested positive for the Omicron variant so contact tracing ordered me to go home.

They are sending a cleaning crew to hose down my office."

I am surrounded by morons w/ Ph.D.s! This co-worker jumped to get his clot shot months ago, went for the booster a couple weeks back, and now his "test" comes back positive. Rather than demanding a new test (how can this thing accurately detect a brand-new variant?), he meekly trots on home as ordered.

(In fairness, it is the last day of work before the Christmas break, so being sent home is not a bad idea -- in theory.)

Maybe. Or being constantly coddled, waited on, bowed to and assured that you're right causes whatever perspicacity with which you might been born to wither and vanish. Like royalty. There was some French nobleman who was convinced he was made of glass and had iron rods sewn into all of his clothing to protect him. Without that level of coddling, he'd have been fine if a little weird. Money alone doesn't get it, you have to be coddled into mental diminution.

"Do not come into contact with others during your isolation period. If you live with others, wear a mask, stay at minimum 6-feet away from them, and clean and disinfect any shared spaces after you use the space.

"For 12-weeks after your initial positive test you DO NOT need to get a COVID test unless you develop symptoms. You may still get emails about the weekly testing, but you do not need to get a test. You WILL NOT get in trouble."

It could explain why he's pushing so hard to the left. It's pure self-interest. He's a weak leader who is unsure of his own position, trying to head off a fight from his left flank.

Reid wouldn't tolerate this sort of shit, using his apparatus in Nevada to destroy any competition for his seat from either left or right within the party. Schumer's terrified of a girl who gets about 17,000 votes in her elections.

Reports out of WV seem to indicate the people are very aware of the potential harm BBB would have done to their state. Whatever Manchin was told privately either by WV state leadership, or congressional leadership I think he realized voting for BBB would have tanked his state and he'd never see political office again.

It depends entirely on if the dems are dumb enough to primary him (i.e., put up a known name and pour money into that opponent's campaign). If the dems do that, Manchkin may lose the primary. And, that would be great because I don't believe any other dem can win state-wide office in WV.

But, if the dems aren't that stupid and don't primary him - I think this helps Manchkin b/c it proves to WV voters that he'll buck the dem party on this kind of thing. Now, depending on political winds it might not matter b/c WV is such a conservative state - he may not win despite this issue. but I don't think him killing BBB will hurt him and it may help him. I think if he did vote for BBB it would kill his career in WV.

197 "Smug. Out of touch. Elitist. Condescending. "

Most people don't understand these people, both inside and outside the administration, are largely Marxist ideologues. They permeate the bureaucracy, media, entertainment and yes, the military. They often hide behind the thinnest of veneers, but that "credibility" is simply part of the attempt to disguise themselves. Their goals are certainly not yours, no matter how had they try to con you. They will use their position and ever waking moment to subvert you and anyone else who oppose their goals. They want to undermine our society, our system of government and ultimately our liberty, which provide us license to oppose and discard them. It's all very deliberate and diabolical.

The main problem today is there isn't any opposition party to speak of. Elected Republicans are mostly composed of collaborators, malcontents and circus clowns there to distract and deter us. We need to find leadership with courage and temerity- and right now that's a rare commodity.

233 Personally I think that actors (and most politicians) are extreme Extroverts who derive all of their personal sense of well being from the approval and adulation from others. As such, they have very little in the way of feeling of self-worth and almost no internally generated values.

In practical terms, they do whatever feels good and whatever someone else tells them is okay to do. And they don't have the ability to think beyond that.

Posted by: The WEF, probably at December 21, 2021 11:38 AM (DU+/6)

249 I agree that he doesn't want to flip - but if Schumer strips him of all of his committee assignments, and continues to vilify him in public; Manchin has a lot of pride, and won't sit still and take it. This is going to be one of those situations where personal emotions and personal actions count for me than any deep policy motives.

Posted by: Tom Servo


I don't really understand the logic of him not wanting to flip. He'd be safer politically as a republican in WV. he could probably get a good committee chairmanship in exchange for flipping. And he doesn't appear to have much in common with the Dems in congress.

His treatment at the hands of Schumer/Biden, etc. is likely to only get worse from here. The crazy dem base is likely to keep harassing him. What is the upside for him in staying with the Dem caucus at this point?

I don't see a downside for him in switching to GOP, and don't see an upside for him in staying Dem.

In my mind the only thing keeping him from switching at this point is tribal loyalty. He's been a dem his entire career and it feels wrong to switch. I get that. But the math suggests to me that he should switch.

============

The downside is that he loses his seniority within the caucus going from a relatively senior Democrat to the newest Republican. That affects things like committee assignments and, definitely, chairs.

McConnell would have to step on a lot of Republican toes to get Manchin to the same level out of the gate, something he probably couldn't manage. Don't fuck with a Senator's prestige.

286 CBD, Buffalo allowed a Dem Socialist to unseat a Democrat stalwart in a Dem city. It may be unlikely, but I think it's entirely conceivable they vote AOC's way in a primary. Rochester is putting a "Guaranteed Basic Income" in place, following Ithaca's dubious lead, so apparently there are Dem-Socialist votes there.

I'm not saying upstate is going to vote to unseat Schumer, but I also don't think it is a slam dunk for him either.

Westchester and Nassau counties, and maybe even even parts of Queens are where Schumer kicks her ass (thanks to losing Amazon from LIC), if she runs at all.

297 The downside is that he loses his seniority within the caucus going from a relatively senior Democrat to the newest Republican. That affects things like committee assignments and, definitely, chairs.

McConnell would have to step on a lot of Republican toes to get Manchin to the same level out of the gate, something he probably couldn't manage. Don't fuck with a Senator's prestige.

someone yesterday argued against this by pointing out that Manchin right now is creating a perception that he really is representing his constituents in WV by standing alone against the party for whom most in his state see as grubbing politicians. He would lose all that notoriety if he were to switch. He is considered a traditional democrat by his constituents which is what they want.

331 Ironic. We can't let Joe Manchin dictate things to us because he represents a state with just 1.73 million people.

But we MUST be subjected to the constant shrieking from every partisan progressive asshole member of the House that represents far less than that, just 0.2% of the overall population. When all these dipshits shut the fuck up, maybe we can consider giving a shit about how many people are in a given state, relative to their Senate representation.

Then again, that's how it is in the Constitution (for a reason) and if you don't like it, get started on your amendment and let us know which 38 states you think you can get to agree.

That's the celebrity Left, and even the non-celebrity left to a certain degree, in a nutshell - nothing they do ever has consequences, so it never occurs to them that for there might be consequences for others. These are the same people that think you can have the government take over the entire economy, but believe that someone will still be making them a new iPhone and serving them a Starbucks. They don't get that Manchin will get voted out if he were to go for BBB. He's a senator and always will be, and that's how it is, just like Bette is a....whatever she is. Total ignorance of the concept of consequences.

Posted by: Anna Puma at December 21, 2021 11:58 AM (hl48L)

372 You have to understand precisely what Manchin did, because a big part of is he does not want to destroy the process. Democrats are trying to drastically change the country with the slimmest of majorities using an irregular process. They are doing that to hide the content and impact of this bill. Manchin wants them to take the bills through committees and bring it up using regular order. He truly believes they should not use the simple majority reconciliation process, which would be unprecedented for this type of bill. He believes, ultimately, this would expose and hopefully weed out most of the destructive parts of the bill though the committee and amendment process. That's how it works with regular order and he's more of an institutionalist in that regard.

378 I'll believe Schumer is actually mad at Manchin when he does pull him from a single committee. Until then, this is just Schumer following through on a plan to try and make the White House happy that ended up just making everyone but Manchin look like idiots.

Posted by: TheJamesMadison,


Fair enough, I guess. but, Schumer usually isn't this stupid politically. My take is that Schumer really thought he could pass this "transformative" nonsense and is truly angry and reacting out of anger instead of strategy or tactics. And he's angry b/c this exposes his left flank and shows how weak he is as a leader.

Otherwise, Schumer knew this wasn't going anywhere all along but let it get built up to this point - which would have been a terribly stupid political move. And again, as much as I dislike Schumer - he's not that dumb politically.

Maybe Schumer's facilities are slipping quite a bit due to his age and that's what is happening here. You have Biden not mentally present - so his young, very arrogant and very progressive aides running the show and Schumer's not all there anymore and you have his young, arrogant aides interacting with Biden's young, arrogant aides.

383 Oxford Study reports that one in 100 of those vaccinated suffered or died from heart arrhythmia during study. Scaled up to 200 million people vaxed, that is 2 million, 1% of all people vaxed. If this is true, then vaccination is statistically more dangerous than Covid.
=====

For the most part, I would ignore those studies, but I am getting ads with a doctor standing in front of an empty emergency room waiting area. One of the ads is for heart problems and the other for deep vein thrombosis. Encourages people to go in right away, even though they don't want to 'bother' medical staff who are busy with 'emergencies.'

______________

I didn't watch the trial, but have read some of the write-ups at LI. Sounds like bullshit to me. Potter was a good cop with a solid record over decades. She made a mistake, which was partially a result of the stress of the confrontation, and partially a result of inadequate training with the tazer. But the mistake should have been inconsequential from a legal standpoint, since she had the legal right to use lethal force on Wright, as a fleeing felon endangering the lives of her fellow officers. She chose to use the tazer instead, and mistook it for her gun. It was an accident, and as much as she may have regretted it, it shouldn't have given rise to criminal liability. Maybe a disciplinary action from the police force (and some additional training), but not a manslaughter charge.

I doubt she would have been charged if the criminal she shot had been white. That's how sick this society has become.

You have Biden not mentally present - so his young, very arrogant and very progressive aides running the show and Schumer's not all there anymore and you have his young, arrogant aides interacting with Biden's young, arrogant aides.

Here's the thing: I've never though Schumer was smart. Like, at all.

His "tactics" during the Gorsuch hearings were idiotic at absolute best.

I fully believe he had a plan that he botched here.

Based on what I've seen with my coworkers, about 1/4 are sick for a day or two, 1/8 are sick for several days, and a couple needed medical attention.

So, most people don't have a reaction, or a minor one.

But then again, there also hasn't been a single one seriously sick from COVID either, from before or after the clot shots were available.

The article is riddled with factual inaccuracies and leaves out any context that would accurately portray what happened such as the fact Trump said to march "peacefully" to the capital. They completely chopped his statement to make a political point. He also states that Trump's claims about the election are "unfounded".

The FNM here is making that bastid a cause. I guess there are mandatory sentences for willful vehicular homicide and causing gross bodily harm, some survivors had deep burns over a huge percent of their bodies. and the judge applied them consecutively rather than concurrently or perhaps that was also mandatory.

Rest assured the FNM would have been howling for blood if the driver was not a poor little POC immigrant what barely spoke english. Personally I hope some victims are also going after the fucking truck driving company and driving school that sent an idiot, probably one who multiplied his stupidity with macho attitude out on mountain roads in a semi-tractor with full load not knowing how to drive safely. ALL fucking trucks and even pickups have an ability to use a lower gear to keep speeds safe. I've seen trucks that used the runaway ramps. THEY are NOT a death sentence, unlike letting your fucking truck crash into traffic on the interstate while you at that point just close your eyes.

523 I like the framing. Midler encouraging gay promiscuity is bad because a lot of gays got AIDS and died. Not because it was immoral and degenerate.

525 Brandon, when he was a Senator, represented a smaller constituency than Joe Manchin. Not that it matters for how the Senate operates, but Manchin's WV constituency is larger than that of Mazie Hirono, or Sheldon Whitehouse, or Chris Coons, or Bernie Sanders. In Betty's world, Bernie is less relevant than Joe Manchin (which is arguably true - sometimes idiots like Bette stumble into the truth).

i tell people that Bill Clinton killed my brother, because he was governor when Arkansas sold infected prisoners blood into the blood products industry.

528 45 I had my very first covid test ever a couple of weeks ago. I had to have a negative test to get on the cruise ship.

I was also coughing up a storm every thirty seconds, fighting off something that I was 99% sure wasn't covid because of testing that had happened to other members of the family.

If you hear someone coughing nearby tell them to far cough.

532 You know how we throw drunk drivers in jail, even if they aren't even involved in a collision? Bette Midler has Ryan White's blood on her hands.

533 Being a part of the entertainment industry, it's difficult for Bette to relate to people with drug abuse problems or limited education.

On a non-sarcastic note, at this stage of her career, it probably really is difficult for her to relate to the vast majority of entertainers who aren't primarily making their living by entertaining (i.e. they are "poor", in her parlance).

534 148 it's a good question. I'm going with more likely that he does get reelected. i'm thinking that might not be as bad as we thought 2 years ago. While i would have expected him to vote with the Dems on the "important" issues, this NO is showing he's not 100% behind the commie agenda.

Manchin may not relish going through that mangle again vis-a-vis the other Dem senators.

538 207 Bette Midler's view of the West Virginia yokels is the same as Alec Baldwin's view of the New Mexico yokels before his pending indictment.

Everybody knows the firearm just went off by itself.

539 214 "There is no way AOC could unseat Schumer."

Disagree. She can win the same way DiBlasio got to be mayor. It's all about the D primary, she now has star power, and could even outraise him with out-of-state money.

AOC appeals to young idiots and minorities, and NYS has more of those than old Jews.

And she has a nicer rack
-----
I read somewhere that over 60% of NYC consists of people born outside the USA. Many of those could be persuaded to vote for an obvious minority candidate.

540 225 And I want to look her straight in the eye and I want to tell her what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless,
heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey sh*t she is.
