Open Thread...

I have nothing to add tonight that can possible make any rational sense as to what is going on in the world and the factured country we are becoming, so I am not even going to try.

But I will say this. I am so very tired of the President of the United States taking every tragedy and turning it into a political diatribe about how horrible we are. We have done nothing to deserve that kind of treatment. It is not our fault. Politicians, ALL OF THEM from all around the world are the problem, not the American people and not the regular people of the world just trying to get through the day.

49 people were slaughtered on Sunday morning by a crazed Islamic terrorist, yet somehow in President Obama's perverted and very sick mind, we must have done something to cause it because it couldn't be for any other reason.

Share your thoughts, but here is a puppy and kitten to help...


and here are some mini-pigs because...well, I like pigs. They put me in my happy place...

Bev, I agree completely with your thoughts. I'm sick of being smeared by the left and by our political class.

As an aside, I'm also really sick of the shameless, cynical way the left turns every tragedy into yet another push for their unwanted agenda. I am truly sick of it.

ArgentGale said...

I'm with you both as well. Too peoply indeed...

Bev.......Cute animals are definitely the reason Al Gore created the Internet. Instead of coffee in the morning to make you feel good, here's some puppies and kittens! Oh and the immature bacon bits too.....

Anthony said...

Now is a great time to be a gamer. Had a lot of fun with Uncharted 4 (think Indiana Jones the videogame) and now am enjoying Overwatch (a competitive multiplayer shooter with Pixarish graphics).

Hey, it probably was Al Gore's evil plan to lull us into complacency with cute pictures. And those are not "immature bacon bits"...oh, wait, yes they are. Okay, I still eat bacon even though I like pigs...call me what you will.

So, there was a 14 hour filibuster yesterday so the Dems in the Senate could prove that SOMETHING SHOULD BE DONE ABOUT GUNS!!!! And Sen. Joe Manchin (D/WV) stated on MSNBC this morning (I paraphrase, of course) "If it weren't for the stupid "Due Process" thing in the Constitution, NO ONE would ever get killed in a terrorist attack ever again. Stupid Constitution!" Why should the gov't have to actually try to gather evidence to prove someone might do something and take it to a judge to with evidence to prove probable cause, when it is just so much easier to put random people on a list and have the random people prove they are NOT up to anything when it comes up?"

BevfromNYC said...

Okay, what Manchin actually said was "Due process is what's killing us."

ArgentGale said...

Good point, Anthony. I've got all the Uncharted games except for 4 and I've heard nothing but good things about them. E3's been showing some interesting things, too. The new South Park game looks hilarious (Cartman setting up a boss fight with PC Principal? That's going to be fun) and Dishonored 2 is looking interesting, too. I've already got Persona 5 lined up as a birthday present, too. Things do look good on that front at least.

Bev,

I totally agree with Manchin and his leftist friends. Due process is killing us!! If we could only get rid of due process, then we wouldn't need to worry about trials anymore, so we could lock up West Virginians without having to wait for them to get caught... you know they're all criminals, right? We could take children away from poor West Virginians and raise them the right way. We could seize whatever property we needed from corrupt, rich politicians to pay off the debts they've incurred too. Yeah, due process sucks. Without due process, things would be fantastic in this here country!

BevfromNYC said...

Oh, AG Loretta Lynch has overruled the FBI Chief Comey and that the Justice Dept. wants to see Congress approve the “no-fly, no-buy” plan Democrats are pursuing/ Hey, we don't need no stinkin' due process.

Kit said...

If this Vanity Fair story is true then that means (1) even Trump knows he's not going to win this election and (2) he is going to spend every waking breath spreading a DolchstoƟlegende that will cripple the party for a decade or longer.

I say we call the Donald's bluff, let him and his sycophants "go it alone." With disapproval rates like he's been hitting, can't envision it getting worse.

BevfromNYC said...

EP, don't say that. It actually could get worse...šŸ˜«

ArgentGale said...

I can't say I disagree, Eric and Kit. I'm afraid of what's going to happen thanks to all the damage Trump is doing to the Republican brand, especially since he seems so determined to make Hispanics a 90% + Democrat voting block. Way to turn the best opportunity since 1978 into a disaster, guys...

ArgentGale said...

Should have been 1980, sorry.

I'm against booting Trump (fear long-term damage) but if he doesn't get a bump next week and continues behave like a moron

I'm starting to think Trump just doesn't care if he wins or loses (and he will lose). His ego is ok, he can blame it on the GOP leadership, which he will do to the day he dies.

On the other hand, Hannity and Coulter will continue to make lots of money complaining that the GOP minority in the Senate won't stand up to Hillary.

Kit said...

"It actually could get worse...šŸ˜«"

The election will be on my birthday. :(

EPorvaznik said...

From a candidate? Sorry, that's what I meant as I know Trump can sink lower, in the polls and a caricature.

BevfromNYC said...

Kit, if it's any consolation, I have a friend who was born the day Kennedy was shot. Easy to remember her birthday though. Always a silver lining, I guess.

Kit said...

Bev,

I already have the Berlin Wall coming down to remember my birthday. I don't need the most needless GOP shellacking to help people remember it as well.

Kit said...

Anyway, Philip Klein sums up Trump's campaign right now:

Rustbelt said...

Oh, geez...normally I come here for fun, enlightenment and good conversation. Now, between this week's events, this board, and Juan Nicasio's pitching, I'm just depressed. (And I was just at a parade yesterday! Talk about a letdown.)
Seriously, it feels like we just opened Commentarama Book Club and spent our first three meetings discussing 'Earth in the Balance,' 'Mein Kampf,' and 'Twilight.'

Well, I'm going to at least try and buck the trend by offering a slight distraction. It's not an answer to any problems, just a distraction. So, if you have a jones for holiday mash-ups, Egyptian Bigfoot sightings, Irishmen with potty mouths, monster truck sumo fighters, and a man of a thousand faces going undercover as a zebra, then this link's for you!

OK. I tried.

Oh, and I should probably add: definitely NSFW.

EPorvaznik said...

My mom's 17th birthday, and in lesser death-date news, 11/22 = Michael Hutchence's last day with us.

EPorvaznik said...

Michael, Michael, motorcycle -- parade news brings us to happier thoughts!!!

Kit said...

You know, all that time Trump spent attacking Judge Curiel in the polls? If he had spent that time attacking Hillary over her email scandals he might not be -6 against her in the RCP average.

AndrewPrice said...

I'm going to ComicCon tomorrow people. I expect each of you to be here, alive, when I come back. No suicide. No manic depression.

Have some cake. Live a little. Stop worrying about it...

Here's a little post I wrote,
you might want read it note by note,
Don't worry, be happy.

Hasta my friends!

Kit said...

Andrew,

I'll be ok. I've got Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro to keep me company.

Have fun at ComicCon.

Sounds like Sanders is preparing to leave the race.

http://www.mediaite.com/online/sanders-pledges-to-work-with-clinton-still-doesnt-quite-concede/

In a livestream broadcast Thursday night Bernie Sanders pledged to work with presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton to transform the Democratic party and to defeat Donald Trump, but did not concede the race.



“Election days come and go,” Sanders said beginning his 20+ minute address, which touched on several of his familiar campaign touchstones. “But political and social revolutions that attempt to transform our society never end. They continue every day, every week, and every month in the fight to create a nation and world of social an economic justice.”
