Bitter ex-girlfriend files phony “Sexual Harassment” complaint, ruins dude’s life. Sometimes, you wonder why anyone chooses to be straight.
Tonight, apparently, His Imperial Majesty Barack Obama I — because the legislature has displeased him — will unilaterally impose his will on the country; and on the stupid American voters who don’t know what’s best for him.
The ironic part about this situation is that Democrats claim that Republicans want to impeach Obama because he’s black. But the truth of the matter is that the entire reason Republicans *won’t* impeach Obama is because he is black; no white male president could get away with the abuses of power Obama gets away with; not just on Amnesty, but on the abuse of the IRS to target political opponents, the unilateral exemptions granted under Obamacare, running guns to Mexican drug gangs. The Democrats would like nothing more than an impeachment trial that they and their media wing could turn into “Racist GOP Impeaches First Black President.” Obama’s approval ratings may be underwater with the citizenry, but his approval ratings in the media looks like North Korean election returns.
Michael Phelps’ self-proclaimed girlfriend Taylor Lianne Chandler has just made a shocking admission.
In a post on her Facebook, Chandler is revealing she was actually born a boy, and named David Roy Fitch at birth.
As a teenager however Chandler went on testosterone blockers and had her name changed and then, in her early twenties, underwent corrective surgery to get rid of her male genitalia.
Yeah, it’s like, whatever man.
This will get interesting if/when they break up and the Social Justice Warriors decide that Michael Phelps is a H8R-Bigot-Republican.
How is it that if Canadian oil is shipped to the southern USA via pipeline it causes Global Warming, but if the same oil is sent to the southern USA by train, or to China by ship… it doesn’t cause Global Warming? Because that is apparently what the radical environmental left and their idiotic Democrat Senators believe.
Tom Harkin on why he’s no on keystone: Says every dollar on fossil fuel is “dollar we spend digging the graves of our grandchildren”
One thoroughly deranged woman took to the Senate floor and declared, ““XL stands for Xtra Lethal and misery follows the tar sands!”
Isn’t there a frozen chicken funeral she should be attending?
I guess that’s one way of looking at it.
Some Palestinian Subhumans attacked a Synagogue in Jerusalem today (as opposed to, as CNN wishcasted, Israelis attacking a mosque). Five people were brutally killed. Subhuman Palestinians in Gaza erupted in celebration, just as they did on 9-11-2001
The POTUS took a break from denying he ever heard of the guy who wrote his signature piece of legislation and responded by grudgingly reading a perfunctory, formulaic statement that made moral equivalence between Palestinians committing terrorism and Israelis defending themselves from terrorism.
Libertarian Senator Rand Paul, on the other hand, put the blame squarely where it belongs.
“I am deeply saddened and alarmed by the attacks that took place early this morning in Israel. These men of faith were cruelly murdered as they were worshiping in their synagogue in Har Nof. I vow to Stand with Israel and I will continue to do all I can to protect Americans at home and abroad. This is a horrific act of violence that should be universally condemned. We must demand that Palestinian leaders stop the incitement, which they have committed in word and in deed. My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Israel,” Sen. Paul said.
Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi won re-election with 82% of the vote. This is mind-blowing to anyone with a mind that has enough functioning neural pathways to be blown. Who, any reasoning person wonders, would vote for this demented Botox Bolshevik?
This photo essay of Mrs. Pelosi’s constituents from a few years back provides an answer. Warning, NSFW (because… San Francisco) and also… if you’re easily put off your lunch, this is not a good site to visit before lunch unless you’re trying to lose a few pounds/
Nick Adds: 82%, huh? I guess it takes a really addlepated constituency to be that far gone, no? I mean really… what sort of collection of depraved and brain-dead buffoons would possibly vote for such a wretch at such a high rate?
Oh wait: House Democrats reelect Nancy Pelosi their leader… Oh, and this:
There were “no nays audible in room,” the aide said.
Leslie Feinberg, who identified as an anti-racist white, working-class, secular Jewish, transgender, lesbian, female, revolutionary communist, died on November 15. She succumbed to complications from multiple tick-borne co-infections, including Lyme disease, babeisiosis, and protomyxzoa rheumatica, after decades of illness.
She died at home in Syracuse, NY, with her partner and spouse of 22 years, Minnie Bruce Pratt, at her side. Her last words were: “Remember me as a revolutionary communist.”
Remember you as someone who supported a system that slaughtered over 100,000,000 human beings in the 20th Century and enslaved millions more. Your proposal is acceptable.
Speaking of hippies, some residents of Berzerkley invaded a Whole Foods store and held a funeral for a frozen chicken. I am not making this up.
The next time Matt Taylor lands a spaceship on a freaking comet, he should wear a shirt like this to avoid offending the Feminazis.
“I’m trained in economics. I went to Harvard. This is what I do. You know, I looked at the math of Obamacare and it didn’t make sense. You said you can’t add millions of people and have it not cost everyone. You can’t add people with pre-existing conditions and not charge more. And, maybe folks would still be in favor of it if they knew the facts. But they needed to know the facts. So, I would pursue that line of questioning and after the show one day I was called up to my manager’s office and was told that I needed to stop. And I said, “Why? This is math not politics?” They said that I was disrespecting the office of the president.“
I am not a Harvard trained economist, but it was always obvious to me that the mathematics of Obamacare were simply impossible, absent a miracle.
- Add millions of people to the health care system
- Require that everybody in the health care system receive more services.
- Reduce cost of health care.
Unless all the doctors and nurses in the country were replaced with magical elves riding on unicorns, the third bullet was always mathematically impossible given the first two. Giving more stuff to more people costs more, not less. How could it possibly be otherwise?
But under Grubercare, that was precisely the lie that the American public were sold, with generous help from the MFM who proclaimed that Obama was sporting clothing woven of the finest golden while he was parading around completely naked. (Sorry if you just threw up in your mouth on that metaphor.)
Maybe Gruber is right, and the voters really are stupid for believing that his health care scheme would work.
Yeah, you can read the rest of that, if you’re interested, but these stories — “Omigod, I Suddenly Discovered I’m Queer” — are beginning to bore me. Never thought I’d say that. However, after months of researching radical feminism, I’ve come to the conclusion that the only reason girls insist that their parents pay to send them to a “small liberal arts school lacking in a party atmosphere” (Emerson College annual tuition, $37,350) is so they can get a Salon column out of it.
And also marry a lesbian with too many piercings.
Give it a few years, and maybe she’ll write another Salon column — perhaps “Omigod, My Lesbian Wife Dumped Me Because I’m Not Queer Enough for Her” — but my point is that (a) the sapphic bildungsroman is swiftly becoming a journalistic cliché, and (b) it is therefore absurd forJaclyn Archer to say she is oppressed by “institutional heteronormativity” at Eastern Washington University.
For wealthy bankers and other well-connected cronies in the top 1% of the top 1%, the Obama years have been quite good indeed, and the billionares and nine-figure millionaires are eagerly snapping up the trophies of conspicuous consumption.
The wealth of the top 1 percent grew an average of 3.9 percent a year from 1986 to 2012, though the top one-hundredth of that 1 percent saw its wealth grow about twice as fast. The 16,000 families in that tiptop category — those with fortunes of at least $111 million — have seen their share of national wealth nearly double since 2002, to 11.2 percent.
Demand for billionaires’ most coveted jet, the $65 million G650 from Gulfstream, is so strong that some G650 owners are now flipping their planes for millions of dollars in profit just months after buying them. Bernie Ecclestone, the Formula One auto-racing promoter and billionaire, flipped his for about $72 million last fall — just weeks after he received it.
Sales of personal, V.I.P. jetliners are also strong. Boeing has received several orders from individuals for its 777-300ER (which normally carries 400 passengers) and its even bigger 747-800.
For decades, a rising tide lifted all yachts. Now, it is mainly lifting megayachts. Sales and orders of boats longer than 300 feet are at or near a record high.
With $85 Billion in borrowed and printed money a month blowing into the stock market, those who are in a position to catch some of that money are doing quite well. Meanwhile, at the other end of the income scale, news is not so good for people who make or build things for a living. the Middle Class is really taking a pounding in the chops under the leadership of ‘The Lightworker.’ and the “party of the working man.”
Since the Senate Democratic Class of 2008 took control, the average real income of the poorest one-fifth of American families has declined every year, falling to $15,534 in 2012 from $16,962 in 2008 (the 2013 data will be released Sept. 16). The average real income of the lowest quintile of Americans is now below the level it was in 1968, the year when the War on Poverty began its spending surge.
The next-highest income quintile, often referred to as the working class, has also experienced a continuous decline in real income since January 2009. The average income of these Americans has fallen 6.5% and is now $1,182 lower than it was when President Reagan left office.
The third quintile—America’s middle class—has seen its average income decline to $62,464 from $65,672. More than half of this decline has occurred since the recovery officially began in the second quarter of 2009
A cynic might wonder if Democrat policies are specifically designed to worsen income inequalities, while Democrat rhetoric is designed to reap political benefit from the growing inequality.
Normal people to SJW’s: Every last one of you is a fracking nutjob, get the hell out of our culture. (Move to France or something).
According to the New Feminism, women are delicate and fragile creatures, so ruled by their emotions that the slightest offense will cause them to crumple and wither like a cut flower, if we are to believe such feminists as Rose Eveleth and Janet Stemwedel.
In support of this hypothesis, let us consider recent occasions in which feminists have made the case that the delicate sensibilities of women must be protected from anything that might give them the vapors.
- Women who might have considered a career in science will instead relegate themselves to jobs as schoolmarms and telephone operators because the sight of a man in an aloha with cartoon women on it will send them to the fainting couches.
- Suggesting that the word ‘Feminist’ be stricken from the language gives women a sad and those who suggested it must be made to grovel and apologize for shocking the delicate sensibilities of the womenfolk.
- Women’s emotions can be so upset by innocuous messages on Twitter that they will demand that constables descend and apprehend the miscreant and that the Twitter service appoint the Feminist equivalent of the Saudi Arabian Morality Police to monitor the content of tweets so that women don’t risk being upset by rancorous argument.
- If video games designed by women are criticized in any way, women will quit participating in the video game industry and probably become nuns.
- Women can also apparently be frightened by cartoon logos depicting aggressive dogs, which make them feel unsafe.
One must conclude that if the feminists are correct, then women are simply too emotionally fragile to participate in most aspects of modern life, and perhaps should stay home with the doors locked and the curtains drawn and let the menfolk handle the heavy stuff.
Obama’s “Deferred Action” for illegal immigrants who supposedly were brought here as children was rationalized on the basis that “Children shouldn’t be punished for the actions of their parents.” But his new Executive Amnesty is going to legalize their lawbreaking parents, too.
I think the lesson here is that leftists lie about everything all the time. The first lie was just the tip for the other lies to follow.
Consider that, when needed, the purpose of hiring an excellent trial lawyer isn’t so much to ensure that justice is done as much as it is to ensure that a judge or jury sees things your way and grants you remedy. After all, what you want at the end of the effort is your legal hired gun to know the ins-and-outs of the litigatory milieu and have the moxy and chops to use that knowledge to bring about the desired end (which is to say, your legal victory, not necessarily a smile from Iustitia). You want justice done … as you see it. That’s why you hire a guy who knows how to work the system (the definition of a competent trial lawyer).
Brings us to electing a Constitutional professor and lawyer as president of the United States. What we’re seeing, all these years hence is that a Constitutional scholar and educator isn’t so much the lover of the Constitution itself as he is the smooth operator who knows just how to manipulate it to his (and his constituents’) ends.
Just like a trial lawyer who knows the law enough to make it work for his purposes, but not because he’s a law-ophile, this Constitutional expert knows plenty about his subject… the better to bend it to his wants.

Howard Dean… the former Chairman and Presidential candidate of a party that seeks to …
- Control at the national level what children eat in school and what adults can eat out of school
- Control what kind of cars people are allowed to drive
- Force neighborhoods to meet bureaucratic standards for racial diversity
- Force people who don’t support gay marriage to participate in gay weddings
- Gut the First Amendment and give Congress control over political speech
- Strip men accused of rape of Constitutional protections
- Use “Hate Speech” as a pretext for censoring political debate on the internet
- Deny people any right to object to or defend against environmental regulations that strip them of property rights
- Supports a President who rules by executive fiat, bypassing Congress and breaking the law at will
HOWARD DEAN: It’s very, very disconcerting. We’re basically rolling ourselves back to the 1920s. This is an authoritarian group of people who fundamentally I don’t think believe in democracy given their views on voting rights, and it’s a very, very frightening time.
And the internet gifts us with a metaphor for pretty much everything that has happened in America since about January of 2009.
