Quick Thought

I should have mentioned this before the weekend, but before you go nuts on Black Friday, check out the prices of things asap. Odds are that many of those prices will go up this week only to be "discounted" back to the normal price as a sale. This seems to be a new tactic that I'm running across everywhere. I've been watching some converse sneakers for our youngest. Their regular price is $49.99 at Zappos and "on sale" at everywhere else. Monday, most places made them $55. Wanna bet on Thursday they get offered as a Black Friday super sale at $49.99?

Ridiculous Media Trends

The media has become a joke. From click-bait headlines to opinion masquerading as truth to the taking of hyperbole and jokes as earnest statements to generate controversy, the media has become a ridiculous creator of news and deceiver of its readers. Even beyond that though, here are some recent media trends that I find truly despicable.

● The media has turned to voodoo. They've been hiring "face readers", "body language readers" and "handwriting experts" to analyze people they don't like and declare judgment on their sanity, their honesty, and their moods. This is utter crap. These people are pure bullsh*t. Trust me, I've dealt with them in court and I KNOW they are total frauds. Hiring these people is not journalism, it is story telling by pretend experts. What's next? Psychics?

● Speaking of fake experts, the latest trend involves the creation of "studies" to back up liberal opinion that isn't playing well in the press. The media has been flooding us with utterly incredible, total-nonsense studies of late. These are reported as fact, when they are at best fantasy or fiction. Want to prove that voting Republican is harmful to your soul? Are whites evil? Are robots better lovers? Do guns cause autism? Does football cause brain damage? Hire an expert to run a study. Don't worry, the media won't report that your methodology involved cashing the check and little else. This is not journalism. It's quack "science". (And I hesitate even to use the word.)

White woman calls cops on... This is not news. In fact, to the extent it is news, it is news that no one got shot. It is news that this mild annoyance is what the evil of racism has devolved to. This is not journalism, it's the creation of a narrative. It is no different than reporting every black rapist you can find, every Mexican immigrant who robs a white woman, or every Russian person who molests a child. It is an attempt to create a stereotype where none exists by making people mistake repetition with commonality. This is not journalism, it is immoral smear-making.

● The fake misunderstanding. The media suddenly seems incapable of understanding obvious hyperbolic statements. The perfect example this week comes from sports, but the examples abound everywhere. This weekend, Rams running back was asked about the over/under on this week's game. The running back (Todd Gurley) said, "I don't gamble. I don't know about those things." This brought a series of idiotic "shocked" articles from sports writers asking if he truly does not understand what an over/under was. Of course he does, you idiots. That was a hyperbolic way of saying, "it does not matter to me." This has become the go-to way for media people to create click-bait headlines, articles when there is no story, and getting to try to embarrass someone they don't like. "Could he really be that stupid???" No... you are.

● Twitter is not a news source. Twitter does not speak with a single voice. Citing people from Twitter is as journalistic as citing what your mother and her friends told you. Citing people on Twitter is not journalism, it is sifting through a cynical pile of sh*t to bolster your opinion.

● There is no journalistic value in gushing about what some assh*le celebrity said about a politician. "Like, OMG, Assh*le Smith just had the perfect put down of Trump!" You are not a journalist. You are a publicist... a fellating publicist.

Finally, some news...

(1) It looks like the Governorships of Florida and Georgia will remain in Republican hands, and the Republican wins the Senate in Florida. In the process, Broward County proved to be yet another Democratic disgrace. They admitted Saturday to recounting the results for the wrong race and losing around 2,000 ballots, among other issues.

(2) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the little socialist girl in New York (seen to the left, I believe) is already calling for challengers to incumbent Democrats in the next primaries. Bless you, Stupid Girl.

Random Thoughts

I shake my head...

● I 'love' the new LL Bean commercial. Apparently, the Crips and Bloods are meeting for a football game. (And yes, I know it's meant to be West Side Story, but it sure seems like Crips and Bloods).

● OMG do I despise this Geico ad with this a-hole who winnies about how great a day it was when he mowed his lawn and the last stripe fit his mower exactly and he... ug shoot me... posted it on social media and got 127 likes. Seriously, someone put this loser out of his misery.

● Scientists have now concluded (long after anyone with a brain should have) that we humans did NOT kill off the Neanderthals. Instead, we interbred with them and they ceased to exist. That's good sex. Anyways, this should have been obvious a long time ago as they can trace Neanderthal DNA through us and even linked Neanderthal DNA to things like autism. How did it get there if we didn't interbreed with them? Did our ancestors get it from sharing a toilet seat?

More interestingly, this now puts the lie to a liberal belief that underpins our evil nature: the idea of the killer ape. Liberals believe that humans evolved from a killer ape who wiped out all competitors. Hence, we are violent because we evolved from a violent ape. The idea that we wiped out the Neanderthals was part of this. But now that's not true. Suddenly, their understanding of human nature is faulty. Think they'll admit that? Doubt it.

● I have zero sympathy for the celebs whose palaces are being burned down. I'm sure they're all insured. And in the meantime, they can live happily in their vacation homes, as they lecture us about our carbon footprint.

● Trump apparently signed a law allowing families with terminal kids to try experimental treatments. Good for him.

● I've seen several investor reports recently that say that Victoria's Secret is dying. That doesn't surprise me. I think their vision of beauty is too elitist and doesn't really resonate with people.

● Isn't it funny how the voting irregularities and found ballots always happen in Democratic districts and help Democrats?

● Check this out. This is the advertising pitch for a watch company supposedly started by two normal dudes who found crowd-source funding and created this new company outside the system, man. When you read this, tell me if this doesn't sound like it was produced by a marketing robot:
In 2013, we started MVMT to disrupt the overpriced and outdated models of the fashion industry. Empowered by the people through crowdfunding, our original watch line set us apart by bringing you quality, minimalist designs at radically fair prices. Through social media we grew far beyond our Los Angeles home, becoming a global community of 1.5 million MVMT owners (and counting).

We’re inspired by the go-getters, the innovators, the dreamers; and our designs embody this very spirit. They’re built for adventuring, creating, and daring to disrupt the norm. Above all else, we create with the dream of enlivening our ultimate mission: to inspire you to live life on your own terms.
Ouch. That hurt my soul. So I'm supposed to be inspired to live my life by my own paradigm by buying a mass produced watch... because that will make me unique. Seriously, could you squeeze in any more marketing nomenclature?

● Finally, I'm pretty sure there is an ancient Indian burial ground under my driveway. Nothing else explains why it's the only driveway on the street where the snow won't melt. I need an exorcist... with a snow shovel.

Why We Know The Media Lies

The media lies to push its agenda. We know this. How do we know? Some thoughts.

Let's start with something basic. The media tells its stories very selectively shading the truth, hiding facts and distorting the picture. For example, Muslims shootup a bar screaming about Allah and the media goes out of their way to wonder what the motive could possibly be. They don't even mention that these guys are Muslims until the last possible second. Conversely, a white guy does it because he's crazy and the media zeroes in on their racism narrative. You can't trust people who distort the telling of facts like that.

Last night's football game had a great example. Eric Reid, one of the two big kneelers (and one of the only ones left in the league) took a cheap shot at Ben Roethlisberger. As QB Roethlisberger was sliding, Reid dove about as low as humanly possible and tried to place his elbow and shoulder into Roethlisberger's helmet. His aim was off, but he still connected, snapping the QB's head back. He was rightly ejected from the game. A leftist reporter, who normally screams about cheap shots and how the NFL doesn't protect QB's heads enough, wrote about this in a way which totally downplayed it. He wrote, "Reid tried to go over Roethlisberger but glanced his helmet with his shoulder." This is basically a lie. Reid aimed right for him, he didn't try to go over him. Reid also went late, long after Ben started sliding -- something not mentioned by the sports reporter. And it wasn't a glance, it was a solid hit that snapped Ben's head back, another fact omitted. Why distort like this? Because the reporter's made Reid into a hero for kneeling. Said differently, because he wants to protect Reid, he wrote a story that paints a completely false picture.

How can you trust a media that does this routinely?

Let's consider another example. Trump called the caravan an invasion. The media scoffed. This is just one little group of people they said condescendingly. Then a second and third and fourth caravan followed. They barely covered those and none of them admitted that this looks more and more like a mass migration than just "one little group of people." A week in, one of them even spilled the beans by writing, "these caravans happen all the time. This one is only a big deal because Trump chose to make it news." IN other words, while accusing Trump of scaremongering by saying this was mass migration, they failed to report that they knew this was mass migration. And while they claimed this was only one little caravan, they knew it was part of a never-ending train of caravans.

Today, we have more. Trump said that this group was not just mothers and kids from Honduras. He said it was full of people from all kinds of countries. "Paranoid!" screamed the media. "Why, I've seen(looked) for no evidence that those people exist!" Well, today, the AP has a glowing article about how it's not just Latins coming through Mexico anymore. Nope. It's Arabs, blacks from Africa and Asians too. Isn't that great?! It's easier to come in that way than the legal way. In other words, while calling Trump a liar, they knew he was right and they were lying.

Again, how can you trust these people after that?

NBC withheld evidence that one of Kavanaugh's accusers had recanted her tale and accused Michael Avenatti of lying. They routinely withhold claims of scandal against liberals until after elections. They "fact check" away bad facts against liberals as they report them, but keep reporting known false "facts" against conservatives. Yahoo will run with debunked anti-conservative stories up to three days later.

Again, how can you trust these people?

Don't forget the absolutely uncritical manner in which they report false claims like this supposed vast number of black men killed by cops. Name them. They repeat this lie that women make less than men, which isn't true for most women and is reversed for young women. Why? Because they want these groups upset. Now they are posting videos of idiots saying racist things. How is that news It isn't unless you want to create a narrative... and with bodycams on cops killing the "I am victim" argument, they need a new narrative.

And let's not forget that surveys show that media types tend to be liberal in the 90% range. They donate to Democrats in the 95% range. And many of them are from the revolving door between Democratic campaigns and the media. That kind of profile would be considered hopelessly biased in any other field, yet we're supposed to believe they can be fair? Hardly.

The media cannot be trusted. This is why.

Save Justice Ginsburg

For those who don't know, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell yesterday and broke some ribs. She's apparently been hospitalized and is being well-cared for, but there are concerns about her failing health overall leading to her retirement. What's more a great many liberals have apparently offered to give her their own ribs and organs to keep her alive. A couple thoughts.

First, I'm happy to see liberals finally getting into charity. It must feel so strange to finally offer something of your own rather than just demanding that the Government take it from some rich guy. Congrats on becoming somewhat human!

Secondly, as you note, it is vital that Ginsburg received those organs and ribs. So don't wait to send them. Go to your kitchens, take the safety coating off your little round knives, and rip open your chests. You'll have to fish around, but go ahead and rip those organs out. You'll be fine. Trust me. Make sure you put your organs on ice in the freezer. Then call 555-0911 and someone will come pick them up. Bless you, you brave liberals.

Third, obviously, I'm kidding... no liberal is ever going to donate anything of their own. That's not how they work.

Fourth, still, this has me thinking. What if Ginsburg did die or needed to retire and Trump got to pick her replacement? Do you know what for a spectacle that would be. Leftists would hold mass rallies led by Hollywood types demanding that the decision be taken away from Trump... and made by Oprah. The Dems in the House would try to rush an impeachment. And ordinary liberals would lose their minds.

That could be a lot of fun.

Fifth, I actually kind of like Justice Ginsburg. Although I disagree with her politics (and she reminds me of Count Dracula), she's not some modern leftist fool. So I wish her well. (Don't stop cutting out those organs though, liberals!)

Sixth, I think Trump may get 1-2 more justices in this term, with one being a liberal. I'm hoping he picks women both times. An Asian woman would be fantastic, as would an Hispanic woman. But I'll take honkey chicks too. In fact, I'd love to see him start appointing lots of women. That would blow the minds of feminists. They would be SOOOOO angry. Talk about flipping the script!

Post-Elective Thoughts

Here are my thoughts on last night's little soiree.

● If I were a Democrat, I would be really, really, really upset about last night. They have never had a better chance to win the House and Senate than last night:
(1) History was on their side,
(2) Trump is hated,
(3) Women were energized by rapey Supreme Court nominees,
(4) Black people were energized by imagined racism,
(5) Hispanics were "more energized than ever",
(6) young people were energized by gun violence in Florida,
(7) the MSM blamed the GOP for sparking terrorism,
(8) the MSM linked the GOP to white supremacists, etc.
You couldn't ask for better conditions for the left. And yet, there was no blue wave. They lost seats in the Senate. They barely took the House with 26 seats after talking about a hundred. They won some governorships but not in purple states like new Georgia, Ohio, New Hampshire, and not in blue states like Maryland, Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut. Pathetic. This must sting... if they're capable of being honest.

Add this to the failure of 2016 and they have to wonder if they don't have a bigger problem. Maybe the public just doesn't like them? Maybe they miscalculated the demographics? Maybe their collection of losers just aren't reliable voters? Shouldn't have satisfied the gays... shouldn't have dumped the white union guys.

● I wonder if this result won't make the Democrats even crazier in the House? It wouldn't surprise me if they conclude that they can't win with the current demographics and they take up an even more hostile posture, especially being weighed down with a fresh generation of socialists, in the hopes of upsetting the game and creating new conditions.

● The media painted this as a referendum on Trump. IF that's the case, then he passed with flying colors. Why? There was no blue wave. A wave would have been apparent in the Senate races, which are statewide. The GOP did really well in those. Where the GOP lost was Congressmen who failed to keep their districts happy, ie. local issues.

Ironically, I already see articles that read: "Democrats capture House in rebuke to Trump." Does that make any sense to you logically? Why didn't they win the Senate then? Why was it only races with scandals or purple districts where this happened? These are the lies liberals tell themselves to soothe the hurt.

As an aside, playing Devil's Advocate, you could argue that the GOP could have survived these problems and kept the House if Trump had been more popular, particularly with suburban women. There might be something to that. It would have helped if (1) Trump had appointed more women and (2) he sent his female appointees out to campaign earlier. But at the same time...

● The GOP needs to connect to city dwellers, i.e. female suburban women. Run women. Run teachers. Develop an agenda that protects families from economic and social harm and helps middle class people help their kids succeed. Lindsey Graham said this too. Man, my respect for him keeps skyrocketing suddenly. Weird.

● Every race in which celebrities turned out to help the Democrat went to the Republican. The public hates celebrities. Sorry Lebron... Oprah... Taylor and all the rest of you dipsticks. Thanks for helping!

● I'm not seeing the year of the woman... again. Hard to tell though. All those articles proclaiming this the Year of the Woman kind of vanished suddenly. That said, there are now 85 women in the House. This beats the current tally of 84. Oddly, NBC had predicted that between 35 and 40 new women would be seated in the House on the strength of the #metoo movement, but that seems a tad optimistic now. Still, +1 is an improvement, right? Of course, Claire McCaskill lost in the Senate as did Heidi Heitcamp (who voted against Kavanaugh), so maybe we just broke even. Next time!

● The GOP is probably stronger in the Senate than before with the retirement of Jeff Flake.

● The left was trying a "Medicare for all" platform. It failed. Identity politics did not extend to being a tranny in Vermont, where the GOP candidate won the governorship. "Vote black to show you're not racist" failed in Georgia and Florida.

● Ted Cruz looked super beatable. Running a far-left progressive was apparently a mistake.

● This will add a lot of fuel to the Democratic civil war. The progressives who survived the primaries tended to win, all be it because they were in safe districts. At the same time, the progressives pretending to be moderates came very close to winning, but ultimately lost. That will give each side unshakeable confidence that they are right. That's a recipe for a split. Look for the post mortem on Beto O'Rourke to become a flashpoint in this debate/war.

● Here's your Democratic lineup for 2020: Media Darling Beto O'Rourke... Californian Kamala Harris... Californian Gavin Newsome... Grandpa Joe Biden... Fake Injun Elizabeth Warren... too-moderate Coloradan John Hickenlooper... sleazeball Michael Avantti... 16 oz. Michael Bloomberg... Ron Paul Bernie Sanders... with possible guest appearances by Hillary and Chelsea Clinton and the Draft Oprah choir.

Don't Panic!

And grab a towel. (For Hitchhiker's fans.) Seriously though, as we head into an election day tomorrow that looks to be bad to pretty bad, keep in mind that none of you need to stress over this.

(1) You have people who love you, and that is truly all that matters in life.

(2) The human race has been through worse. Plagues, floods, the Holocaust. This is nothing compared to those things and we always pulled through and made the world better afterwards. Indeed, despite millions of wrong turns, the human race seems to be on a slow, steady journey of improvement. We'll get past this, no matter what happens.

(3) In fact, we've lived through worse. You want bad? Think back to Obama 2008. At that point, the Democrats held the White House, the House, a super-majority in the Senate, and effectively the Supreme Court. That was perhaps the closest the US ever came to being destroyed. And yet, we survived. This time, the Democrats will only get the House. We control all the rest. That means gridlock... which isn't a bad thing if you're a conservative. That will just make us even less dependent on those dipsticks in Washington.

(4) Keep in mind that Washington really barely matters to us anymore. Washington has become a place that matters only to corporate titans looking to make a crooked buck. It no longer controls the economy as it did in the 1940's. It is no longer the leader of science as it was when NASA was King and the military needed to win the cold war. It never had power over culture except to ratify things the public was already doing. The government matters less to us today than it has at any point in my life.

(5) And anything they try, Trump will veto.

(6) Most importantly though, keep in mind that most people are fundamentally good, fundamentally rational, and fundamentally grounded in common sense. The news isn't. The news is full of crazy a-holes. Our political system and Hollywood and the media mimic that. But the public isn't like that. You are surrounded by good people. You live on a fantastic, amazing planet. God, or whatever you want to call Him/it, is good. So what if Nancy Pelosi whines away in a former swamp. You live for something greater and among people who are greater.

(7) Dogs. 'nuff said. What amazing creatures.

All in all, I know that you are interested in politics... and it's about to turn to sh*t. I know that you resent being mistreated by celebrities... and they are about to act mighty smug (though they shouldn't, not with a minor win). I know you love this country and it hurts when jerks get to try to harm her, as Democrats do. But America will survive and will regain her balance and will move forward greater than ever. Those same celebrities will feel smug Wednesday but will go back to selling their souls, falsely accusing each other of rape, suing each other over nothing, and dying of drug overdoses the day after. Why care what they think? The next few years will be even more shrill, sure, but we'll still be here to talk rationally. And finally, none of this ultimately matter to your life. Remember that. Your life is much more important than what happens in Washington. You are much more important than all of them combined.

So hang in there, my friends.

Election Day Tuesday

So the big election is Tuesday. This one could be a mess. I'm still not at all sure how it will turn out except that the GOP will keep the Senate. The House... I have no idea. I've told you why I think the GOP could keep the House. Gerrymandering. Polls being national. Great economy. Democratic idiocy. The army of caravans. No Democrats looking to get ahead of the victory. Trump's high popularity.

But something bothered me this weekend. Mike Pence declared that we would keep the House. That felt like a death blow to me. That felt like a last ditch effort to encourage people to get out to vote in a desperate cause. Arg. Now I'm not so sure... not that I was sure before either, but it seems like the GOP is resigned to losing. That's a bad sign.

So here are some thoughts.

Whether they lose or not, the GOP made several mistakes. (1) Not advertising their achievements all along. I doubt many can identify what they've done other than fight with Trump. (2) They keep running loonys that hurt the image -- the Nazi in Illinois, for example. The Democrats do this too and it hurts them too, but the GOP ones get the news coverage because the media is biased. (3) Not learning to denounce the racists who try to "help" them in races like Florida. (4) Not having an agenda to sell.

While letting the Democrats have the House won't be pleasant, but what is these days -- I can barely turn on the internet with my rage coming on -- it might actually be good for 2020. The Democrats will go apeshit because that it what they are and they will pass some insane demonstration bills... "shut down ICE!" They will hold angry hearings 24/7. They will shutdown the government. They might even try to impeach Trump. All of that should bring about a pretty strong red wave in 2020, when we need it even more. I suggest Valium for the next two years. Then we'll see.

Thoughts

Some thoughts...

● The first caravan helped the GOP by exciting GOP voters. I think the second will help the GOP even more with moderates. Why? Because the first could be excused as a small group of desperate poor trying to escape a bad situation. The second suggests an endless flow of people coming here for money.

● The media is excited about a MSNBC poll showing Cruz only 5% ahead. The problems are, (1) this is an MSNBC poll and very unreliable, better polls suggest 7%, (2) even the MSNBC poll only shows 3% undecided, so if they all went for famous boy Beto, Cruz would still win, and (3) the celebrities have started to jump on the bandwagon, which should be worth 3-4% for Cruz.

● The shooting stuff is hypocritical. You have a nasty violence-encouraging media that has done things like post assassination fantasies about Trump, screams racism every change they get, and sells the GOP as a bunch of white who want to rape women and restart slavery... and they're whining that Trump's rhetoric encouraged this? Hardly. If rhetoric is a problem, and I think it actually is, then the MSM bears the lion's share of the blame.

● I am sick of this media crap of running every video they can find of some cranky ass white trash woman cussing out a black person. First of all, that's not news. Secondly, the fact they can only find a dozen of these out of hundreds of millions of people should be encouraging, not discouraging. Third, this is a total distortion akin to showing every crime committed by black males. If you just showed the crimes in Chicago, you would outnumber these videos hundreds to one, but that's not representative of black males or America. That makes this a narrative... propaganda.

● So much of the "news" is not news. Some liberal actor insulting Trump is not news. Nothing said on Twitter is news. Some asshole actor/actress responding to a troll is not news. Some actor out shopping is not news. People leaving anonymous comments at some website is not news. Someone criticizing a royal for what she wears is not news. An actress stretching is not news. Does no one in the MSM know this anymore?

● Hillary Clinton is musing about running again. I'm all for it.

● Our Democratic candidate for Governor (Jared Polis) once attacked a woman (a female employee), who called 9-1-1 on him and then got a restraining order. Not a peep from feminists on this. Surprise!

● Today was 76 degrees. Tomorrow... it snows. Welcome to Colorado.

The Meaning of 'Diversity'

Had an interesting experience last night. We went to a college fair with our oldest and got the "diversity" treatment. Interesting implications.

For those who don't remember, my oldest is half black. The black half of her family is what you would consider ghetto black -- criminals, father-less children and "black culture." Indeed, these people are obsessed with their blackness and they are worried that she is not. She has an aunt, for example, who keeps reminding her to stay in touch with her "blackness" and warns her that whites will never accept her. She has another aunt who castigated her for using big words that make "people" uncomfortable, i.e. black people. The word that upset her was "imbecile." What's more, one of her aunts actually has been trying to discourage her from going to an engineering school because "that's no place for black folk. They ain't gonna let you succeed." (Reminds me of the family in Hoop Dreams.) She then recommended that my daughter go to some shitty local black college where "people like us belong." Lovely.

Fortunately, my daughter sees through this and is rather angry at what they are trying to deprive her of with their racial self-pity. She's even come to enjoy antagonizing them, suggesting to her ultra(fake)-religious aunt that she's an atheist lesbian who wants to date white girls, and now wanting to pose in polo gear... the whitest sport known to man.

So anyways, last night we went to a college fair with about three dozen colleges sending representatives who (wo)manned tables as you came by to ask questions (every representative but one was a liberal woman). Each visit to a table began with the rep asking if we had questions. My daughter then jumped right in like a pit bull. Her first question was, "What are you most proud of about your school?" The school she was most interested in (the best of the lot by far) blew her away with their answer. They talked about being a tier one research school, with astronauts on staff, NASA money, research grants ("we do research that changes the world"), tech parks, named-dropped all the big tech companies, 600 clubs on campus, etc. My daughter was very impressed.

The others... well, they defaulted to "diversity."

See, apparently, when you are a black girl, all you want to hear about is how diverse the school is because you won't possibly care about education and activities, all you care about is the race of those around you. One of these women never even got to the point of talking about education... all she talked about was diversity. Even after my daughter started pushing for details on their programs all this woman kept talking about was diversity. Amazing.

What's more, after talking about "diversity" in the big picture and using the phrase "women of color" enough to make me want to slap her, she suddenly got really excited and told my black daughter how the school's goal (about which she is SOOO excited) is to make sure that next year's entering class is at least 25% Hispanic.

Huh.

So apparently, the world breaks down into honkeys and diversities and if you are diversity then it doesn't matter what race/color the other diversities around you are so long as you are surrounded by them. Said differently, this woman seemed to think that because my daughter is black, she needs to be sold on a place as being not-white and it doesn't matter what kind of browns they have.

This is really telling. For starters, the illogic of it is astounding. If my daughter really was obsessed with her blackness then why in the world would she be excited about being surrounded by Mexicans (that's what "Hispanic" means out here, as compared to DC where it means Latin Americans and New York where it means Puerto Ricans)? Wouldn't she want to be surrounded by blacks? Not Mexicans? Telling her she would be surrounded by Mexicans should be a turn off, shouldn't it? Hence, her sales pitch makes no sense... unless you see all diversities as a monolith, which is exactly what she's doing. She's divided the world into white and brown and she's decided that browns are all one big happy family who all want alike (sounds like: they all look alike to me, doesn't it?).

Even worse, she's decided that being brown is so all-consuming that this is the only sales pitch that matters: "we have lots of browns." There is no room in this woman's tiny mind for the idea that my daughter was there for education rather than pigmentation solidarity. Screw her.

Wanna bet she doesn't give the same pitch to a white boy?

Fortunately, my daughter told me that the woman turned her off with her opening sentence and kept digging from there. It is insulting though. And, for the record, it's racist... as so many liberals are.

Election Suspicion: GOP Victory

I don't have any analysis to back this up yet... but I think the GOP is gong to hold the House. Here's what's making me think this:

(1) Gerrymandering is a powerful thing and it takes more than a couple poll points to overcome that.

(2) Liberal polling (NBC) says the Democrats have a 9% advantage in the generic poll. But that number falls to 7% for registered voters. NBC didn't report likely voters, who will decide the election, but they usually lean a couple more points to the right. Take out the liberal bias of say 3-4% and you're looking at an advantage of less than 4%, possibly as little as 2%. That's not enough for the Democrats to win because that is a national number, which means millions of Democratic votes get squandered in California, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and places that don't count like D.C., Guam and Puerto Rico.

(3) GOP numbers always improve the closer you get to the election. Right now, GOP intensity is 68% compared to 71% for Democrats. That is a high number for the GOP given the anti-Trump hate and it may yet improve. GOP voters are also more likely to convert intensity into turnout.

(4) Trump's approval rating is as high as it's been. NBC has him at 47%, Rasmussen has him at 51%. Either way, it's never been higher. That's inconsistent with the idea that the public wants to punish the GOP. Something is off here.

(5) I'm on Democratic mailing lists and they are remarkably lackluster and timid at the moment. There has been no rousing call to victory. They are also equally focused on 2020 as 2018, which suggest they are not invested in the present.

(6) The Democrats seem to have lost touch with reality. In several races where the Democrats could win (like Arizona), they seem to be running people who have endorsed terrorism or socialism or other crazy crap, and they don't seem to see the problem with this. That suggests a lot of their people are not in touch with the public.

(7) The Democrats are relying on (single) women, young people and Hispanics to turn out. If they don't, then they lose. I have seen no evidence that these groups ever turn out, no matter how upset they are. Moreover, the Hispanic stuff seems to have fizzled as they have not been deported. Democrats also haven't wooed them until the last few weeks and that apparently generates a cynical response. Young people have disappeared from the news cycle. There is no mention of college cost, the job market is super strong, and there are no young people issues. Even corollary issues like gays and pot are all going their way, so there is no reason for them to turn out.

Single women are the one agitated group, but they have blown a ton of energy on worthless causes the past two years. The pussyhead rally busted on the inertia of "somebody else save me!" MeToo has turned into a gaggle of scandal ridden, in-fighting losers who are losing every little bit they gained, which was never much -- even Harvey Weinstein is going to beat the rap. The Kavanaugh protest was always elitist and hypersensitive... and it again brought a devastating loss. Three movements, each getting smaller and more shrill, combined with each loss getting larger suggests a pattern: narrowing support leading to a spiral of demoralization and cause-abandonment.

(8) The Democrats who would normally be racing to claim credit for the coming victory are all shifting their focus to the future. No one seems to want to claim this baby yet, which suggests there might not be a baby.

None of this is set in stone and I don't have a lot of data to back it up, but these are the hints I'm seeing right now. They suggest lower than expected Democratic turnout and a small GOP victory.

Pelosi's Agenda

I've seen several headlines now claiming that Nancy Pelosi has laid out her agenda, should she retake the house. Most of these articles then turn into diatribes about this being the "Year of the Woman"... like every other year. They never seem to get to her agenda. That said, I finally found it. Prepare to be amazed!
(1) Pelosi plans to introduce a campaign finance reform bill. No details available. Yawn. If prior history is any indication, this will be an attempt to stop GOP donors from donating. Basically, they want to stop rich people (excluding Democrats) from being able to spend money politically unless it's on Democratic causes.

(2) Pelosi wants to lower drug prices... by magic.

(3) She wants to work with Republicans to create a gun background check bill. "Work with Republicans" is code for "want to look like we're doing something, but not actually do anything because doing would be political suicide."

(4) She wants to protect "Dreamers," who don't seem to be in any danger.
And that's it.

Do we believe this or is she just hiding the crazy? Actually, I believe this is probably all they've got planned. The reason is they don't really have much of an agenda anymore except being anti-Trumps and making sure black people and single women are paranoid. Sometimes there's talk of a $15 minimum wage, but "surprisingly," that never seems to arrive even in places controlled by Democrats.

I think the Democrats will more likely spend their time holding hearings, trying to prove every rumor about Trump. There may be some idiots who introduce bills with names like "The All Women Get Raped, Believe It! Act" and "The Every White Person Is Racist Act", but those won't pass... they're just for show. Of course, the Dems have drifted so far to the whacko fringe that you never know, but their leadership at least still believes that their "beliefs" are just for show.

Irony? No, Liberals

I've been super busy -- sorry for no articles -- but not busy enough to notice some odd ironies. Or is it just liberals?

● Yahoo sports ran an article in which they called a cheating allegation against a Redsocks pitcher conspiracy thinking. The a-hole liberal writer did it by saying, "This is the kind of thing social media like Breitbart picks up." How's that for ironic? After all, Yahoo is the one running with the story, not Breitbart. So who is promoting conspiracy theories?

● I'm trying to understand the new rules. A white trash woman in a convenience store is standing at the counter. A black kid walks past and accidentally touches her butt with his backpack (wash the bag, kid). She turns around and sees him walk past and assumes he touched her skanky ass. She screams harassment and calls the cop. Everyone makes fun of her because it's the bag and because she's obviously racist. Got it?

But then we are told that any woman who makes a complaint against a white male, even if the supposed harassment happened in a prior life and with no evidence and if she's not even sure it was him but she wants it to be true... that needs to be taken seriously, be believed, and the white man loses his career. And if he produces evidence that it couldn't have been him, (1) we attack him for victimizing her twice by defending himself, (2) we are told it doesn't matter if it really happened or not, only her pain matters, and (3) we ridicule the evidence.

So why don't the same feminist rules apply to the skank?

● The media is outraged over crimes against the media, such as the killing of some Saudi journalist and they would happily send us to war to punish those who committed this unholiest of crimes. But other people get killed every day and the media doesn't care. Soldiers. Joggers. Screw you unless you're a journalist or you can be spun politically.

● OMG! That WOMAN in Arizona called her Democratic opponent a "traitor" for protesting against American troops while... well, it doesn't matter. The point is she called that woman a traitor and that's unacceptable in American politics! Which is interesting, since we went through a month of every liberal Democrat and lots of MSM types calling Trump a "traitor". They didn't seem to have a problem with that.

● Bill Clinton's rapes are different. Those women were technically adults. So sayeth Hillary and none of the women's groups said a word of dissent. Wanna bet they don't buy that if a Republican says the same thing?

● Melania has called herself the most bullied woman in the world, and the left whined and screamed and bullied her over it. So the anti-Bully types are super-bullies. Now some rapper has made a nasty little video in which a Melania look-alike strips for him. Not a peep from the anti-bully types or the army of women's groups who so very recently told us that anything even kind of sexually suggestive against a woman is the equivalent of rape. At the same time, they're horrified that someone said Michelle Obama looks like Bobo the Chimp standing up straight. Apparently, it matters who the insult is against, not what the insult is.

● Elizabeth Warren took a DNA test and now has, according to liberal media experts, "strong evidence" she's part Cherokee. Leaving aside the fact they seem to worship the apartheid system, there's a problem with this. First, it's only 3%. So her story about an Indian grandmother pretty much can't be true because it's far too distant. Secondly, as the Cherokee themselves pointed out angrily the other day, DNA testing is not a valid way to determine if someone belongs in the tribe. This time, the MSM doesn't really give a crap what they say. On any other issue, they do. I wonder what the difference is.

Ridiculous Leftism Vol. 2.3 Million

The left continues to be ridiculous... hateful... stupid... intolerant. Here are some of the latest example.

● Attention black people. Obey your masters or liberal celebrities will mock you in racist ways. Even CNN will call you a "token negro." You have no right to independent thought. Get in line... or else.

● Black Vermont legislator Kiah Morris is quitting the Vermont legislature because of supposed racist threats. I doubt it. But hey, let's run with it. Ever notice how it's the liberal states where these things happen? Did you know the states with the worst income inequality are ALL the big liberal states? The states where all the racist stuff happens are liberal states. That's where the hate crimes happen. That's where people don't have healthcare. Etc. Etc. Anyways, Morris says she is quitting because "I cannot speak my truth." Huh. Well, for one thing, K-Mo, it's not your truth. Truth is truth and belongs to no one. And if you think it is indeed your truth, then either you're a fool or "your truth" is probably utter bullshit... or both.

● The latest line from celebrities is to claim that they no longer feel comfortable in America. Good, leave.

● The left is very upset that Melania claims she's the most bullied woman in the world. It's true. Leftists LOVE to bully her, almost as much as they love smearing Trump's children. But they don't like being called on it. And they really don't like being accused of bullying someone they think deserves it because she's married to someone they hate.

● Continuing along Melania hypocrisy, they've been smearing her all week for everything she wore on her recent African trip, while simultaneously whining that it's wrong to judge liberal sluts on their clothes. Emily Ratsomething is upset that people are commenting on the slutty bra-less wifebeater she wore to protest Kavanaugh and other celebrities are jumping in claiming it's wrong to point out women's clothes... while mocking Melania for what she wore.

● The headlines have been something else this week. It's no wonder the drones are so messed up. "McConnell plans to destroy Senate!" "Republicans intend to destroy constitution." "Senate Republicans work to undermine women." A racist person in city X said Y. A sexist school administrator said Z. Global warming is so much worse than anyone knew... we're all going to die. Etc. Etc. What a bunch of lies and hate meant for the consumption of people too stupid to know better. You know... liberals.

● I've seen a new trend. Whenever liberals get in trouble, some dipstick runs out and creates a "study" which reveals that everyone was wrong about the liberal. Imagine that!! The latest involves the NFL and the Kaepernick thing. We are now told by a study that the kneeling had nothing to do with the NFL's ratings decline -- ignore the fact that the kneeling coincided perfectly with the ratings decline and even reversed itself now that no one is covering the three guys kneeling anymore.

This study is bullship, as most of them are. It claims that the real cause was the "quality of the games." Except, that's a subjective measure and, therefore, cannot be measured. It could be excluded, but not measured. Moreover, there are simply too many factors to determine what caused a particular rise or fall. Also, they in no way explain how the coincidence of the kneeling and the decline and then re-rise aren't connected except that they asked some people who said it didn't really bother them. This is no study, it's an opinion pretending to be a study, as so many of them seem to be suddenly.

Thoughts?

P.S. There will be a new Monsterpiece Theater tonight.

Kavanaugh Fallout!

Let's follow up on the Kavanaugh fallout.

● Here's a quote to remember:
“This is a historical moment for women and ... will go down in history as the moment it was revealed how rampant sexual assault is and how it is no longer going to be tolerated,” said Jen Palmieri, the communications director for Clinton’s presidential campaign.
The left excels at wrongly predicting history. Remember the picture of the black chick that was supposed to be iconic but was old news within a week? Anyways, this quote is virtually identical to quotes I've heard after Bob Packwood, Anita Hill, during the passage of the Violence Against Women Act, when #metoo was created last year, and now. Yet, the numbers never show rampant sexual assault so feminists retreat to the tired claim that there are 10 rapes for every one reported, and they always claim women are too scared to report. This is a game and you will see it repeated the next time they get some liar to accuse a Republican of sexual assault... and the time after that. It's like the year of the woman, a fantasy that will never come but comes every election cycle.

● Leftist strategists are worried that the Democrats need to stop whining about Kavanaugh or they will damage their chances in the mid-terms. Already, their misbehavior has raised Republican enthusiasm to a par with Democrats, erasing many Democratic leads. The problem is the left just can't help themselves. They are on a tantrum bender and these emotional little creatures just can't stop.

● Speaking of which, it would seem that Kavanaugh has killed off Senate Democrats in South Dakota, Missouri, Indiana and Montana. Even New Jersey may be in play now. It's also destroyed potential victories in Texas and Tennessee. The Senate appears safe. I suspect the House is safe too, but we'll see. It is now common wisdom on the left that the Republicans will lose the House because Kavanaugh will cost them suburban women voters. Except, those seem to be the women who were worried that their husbands, sons and brothers could be the next Kavanaugh. Not to mention, the liberal women among them have proven they don't vote. So I think their certainty of victory is far less than certain.

● The #metoo movement keeps imploding further into farce. Now movement founder Rose McGown has called the movement "bullshit" and say it exists only to make Hollywood-types look good. Well, duh!

● For those who don't know, leftists kidnapped Doctor Who and decided to turn him into a woman. Indeed, their comments are sickly vindictive in this regard. Anyways, they've been touting this as some major rise for women, a moment of triumph. I, conversely, predict this will simply kill Doctor Who. First indications are that I'm right -- of course, because I don't engage in wishful thinking and I don't ignore reality in my analysis. What tells me they are seeing the writing on the wall? Well, reviews of the first episode are already assigning blame, suggesting a pending failure. They are blaming the writing, not the fact that Doctor is a woman. See, it's not the bizarre politically correct and unworkable choice of making him a woman which flies in the face of the formula which drives the show which is killing the show... it's the leftist who decided to make him a woman who has refused to write her properly. Uh huh.

● It's going to snow tonight. Ug. I blame Kavanaugh.

● I've been debating if Kavanaugh's victory will increase leftist turnout or depress it. It's hard to tell. Will this demoralize them or make them angry? We have two clues. The mobs sent to protest Cavanaugh were laughably small. That suggests demoralization. Similarly, all the posts from idiot celebrities are depressed rather than angry. Again, that suggests depressed leftist turnout.

Robin Hood Is Tiresome

You know, I'm over Robin Hood. I have been for a long time now, actually.

When I was kid and I first heard of Robin Hood, I have to say that I was enthralled. Here was a guy who stood up to a tyrant to bring freedom to the people. He fought unfair taxation. He opened up the King's wrongly-private lands. He freed the oppressed from a pretend King and his lackey Sheriff who knew no bounds and followed no laws, for whom the law was a weapon rather than a set of rules. This guy was like the classic conservative ideal. Add in Errol Flynn or a Disney fox and he even had class.

But then remakes kept coming. The villains became ridiculous. Robin's soul became blurred. Did he do it for principle? Was he just another noble in a power struggle? Did he do it for the girl? Oh look, a version where he's a feminist. A version where he doesn't really exist. A version where... you know what? I don't care. I don't care anymore. You can't take a very clear character like this and turn him into whatever pet peeve you have. You can't take a character like this and remake his story to the point that we've seen it a million times in a million different way, none of which understand who he is. Live action films. Television version. Version from different perspectives. Cartoons. Doctor Who episodes. Modernized versions. Hell, there's probably a naked version on roller skates. I'm done.

Seriously, I'm done with Robin Hood. Robin Hood is an archetype. He is the reluctant libertarian hero who had his moment... and I'm tired of seeing him used over and over and over and over and over again without any understanding of what made him capture our imaginations. He was cool because he stood for freeing the people from tyranny. Nothing more. Now, he's become the rock anthem sold into commercial slavery to pimp toilet paper and snack foods.

At this point, I seriously can't choke down another reincarnation of him.

You?

Some Thoughts/Reactions

Some thoughts in a busy week.

● The media is saying that angry Republican men will now play a role in the election just like outraged women will. If that's true, then the left is in trouble. Angry men vote. On the other hand, the past few years have shown us that outraged women don't. #metoo never left Hollywood and media women before it did a desperate retreat into scandal and wishful thinking. The pussyhat rally died the minute they littered their signs and went home and bravely called for somebody (else) to do something! Women for Hillary apparently never turned up for the election (BTW, Hillary is now at an all time low in popularity according to Gallup despite appearing on a sitcom). So if an army of angry men intends to show up, then the left has lost.

● Why does the word "white" always get used by leftists and the media when this issue is men v. women? And do you think the left would let it slide if I kept sneaking "black" into my angry sentences?

● If this is men v. women, why do so many women support Kavanaugh?

● The media has this wrong anyways, when they say white men are angry. White men aren't angry because white privilege or male privilege is being taken away... as if there was such a thing. No, white men are angry because we've spent the past 2,000 years learning about the protections we need from the government and from each other for society to function. This group of shrill victim-wannabes, like every other racist or hate group, wants to strip those away in the name of their pet peeve and leave us in an era of star chambers that would shame the Nazis, the Communists and the witch burners. When that happens, people get killed and society collapses. See, it turns out that the zombie apocalypse is not a wave of animal-like creatures biting each other, it's packs of liberal targeting people they envy.

● I've had a vision of my death. I'm going to fall and break my neck or something... in the kitchen. For the next three days, my kids are going to walk over the body pretending not to see anything. I intend to haunt the little sh*ts.

● Monsterpiece Theater is starting again at the film site Friday. Make sure you check it out!

I Am Perplexed

So Donald Trump insulted a female reporter and I'm not sure I understand what lesson I'm supposed to draw from this. The reporterette in question is Cecelia Vega. Trump told her, "I know you're not thinking. You never do." And the response from feminists has been outrage. But not just outrage, outrage that implies there is something sexist or anti-woman about what he did.

Hmm.

Here's what bothers me. There is nothing sex-based about what he said. He just called her a moron. The identical could have been said to anyone of any race or gender or religion without having any racial, gender or religious connotations. In fact, I'm pretty sure I've said it to lots of people and I've heard other people say it to lots of other people. So what makes this somehow sexist?

Do you see the problem here? If they had said, "He needs to stop insulting reporters boo hoo, we're so weak we can't take it!" Then I can understand where they are coming from. I can't respect it, but I get it.

But by implying that the problem is that he said it to a female reporter, they've change the whole meaning of their whining. Now they are suggesting that female reporters are delicate and can't stand the same insults lobbed at male reporters.

Are they? Are they delicate flowers we must protect from the mean old world? Or are they, as we're told, actual reporters?

You know, I was always told that female reporters should be treated like men, but apparently not. Apparently, they need to be coddled and protected... like children. Maybe they shouldn't be in the field if they can't handle a little insult like this?

Has it dawned on anyone that the feminist view of women is super condescending and oddly Victorian? "We are equals, just don't say anything mean... or do anything that might raise the specter of sex... or cause me to be upset 40 years from now... or that goes beyond the way the Victorian stereotype of how little girls behave." Get me to a convent to protect my delicate virtues! Why is this how feminists see women? The non-feminist women I know are a good deal tougher than that. Is feminism just about protecting pathetic, weak women?

Thoughts?

By the way, if you're a liberal, a feminist or a reporter and you need me to define any of these words, just email me and I'll be happy to dumb things way down for you.

Kavanaugh Wrap-Up

So here's what I'm seeing.

1. The AP says that Ford won the morning, and the GOP was ready to give up, but then Kavanaugh was so strong that the GOP reversed course and supports him. A surprising admission for leftists. So Kavanaugh must have won.

2. Expect the polls to show Ford won, but that will be because of a +15% Democrat advantage.

3. I see no articles on the left declaring victory. I see articles talking about the electoral advantage of this becoming "the year of the woman" and articles where they whine that it was all men on the committee. Talk of how to take down the woman Trump would appoint next seems to have ended. That suggests the left has given up.

4. Rob Portman, a liberal GOP Senator, strongly supports Kavanaugh. Left-lover Lindsey Graham expressed intense outrage at the left (he won my respect on that). Jeff Flake, a crazy anti-Trumper, has said that we must admit we don't really know what happened -- the comment had the ring of leaning pro-Kavanaugh.

That leaves Susan Collins and Crazy Murkowski from Alaska as weak links. They met with conservative Democrat Manchin of West Virginia today for reasons unknown. If any Democrat will support Kavanaugh, it would be Manchin. They may be looking for cover... some semblance of a bipartisan vote.

I'm thinking... thinking that Kavanaugh gets voted through by 50-50 with Mike Pence casting the final vote. Murkowski votes No, Collins votes yes, Flake votes yes, Manchin backs out and votes No.

5. No matter what happens, the left will play this up as the next War on Woman. I don't see that working though for a number of reasons. (1) Married women support Kavanaugh, (2) the #metoo movement has lost any semblance of legitimacy, (3) all the women's marches, etc. have proven that women as a political group just don't work: (i) they seem to expect others to do it for them, (ii) they think their goal is to be handed power rather than take it, (iii) their goals are unclear and at odds with how real women live, and (iv) they aren't really a party of women, they are a leftist movement that uses women and will even support "better" male candidates and ignore the sex crimes of male supporters.

6. I think the media will lose interest. In fact, they seem to be losing interest already and are switching to other, sexier scandals. So the story dies no matter how the vote goes.

7. If the GOP votes no, look for a massacre in November.

8. If the GOP votes yes, nothing changes in November.

Disgusted

Hi everybody! Sorry for the lack of articles, but frankly, the news is disgusting right now. The MSM is on a genuine McCarthy-esque pogrom to destroy Kavanaugh and everyone related to him or who might support him, and is bending over so far backwards to sell his accuser's claims that their spines would snap, if they had any. It's so obnoxiously retarded that I'm sick of even turning on the internet.

Anyways, Thursday is the big day, I guess. They'll both testify and we'll see if this female prosecutor is any good. Hopefully she is and she provides enough that the weak-link Republicans vote for Kavanaugh. Then the whole thing is over. If not, then this ugly affair will drag on. We'll see. They're considered weak for a reason.

In the meantime, I'll leave you with this. The drones on the left have lost their minds... tiny and useless though they always were. The perfect example of this comes from a new scandal involving Harry Potter. In the latest Harry Potter incarnation, Rowlings has hired a Korean woman to play a character from the 1920s who is cursed to turn into a snake. That snake will become Voldemort's pet and he hides part of his soul in it before the snake gets beheaded by Neville Longbottom.

Why has this hit my radar? Because the drones on the left have been programmed to see racism under every rock, and they see it here. Why? Because they hired a Korean woman to play this part!!! Isn't it obvious?!!! She's Korean!! I'm not kidding. They are doing some serious mental gymnastics to see this as racist. To get there, you first have to say, "Gee, white people were racist to Asians, so a white person hiring an Asian is racist" (note that liberals used to push for diversity). Then we add the "dragon lady" stereotype, which doesn't apply in any way shape or form here except that the drones are sure it does because white person hires Korean... duh! Then they add she is simultaneously the submissive Asian woman stereotype (good luck with that contradiction). How do we know she's submissive since she doesn't do anything in the trailer? Because she's Korean, duh! Plus, why else would a white person hire a Korean woman? (Mental note: whites may not hire Korea women). Even worse, she will become Voldemort's slave, thereby fulfilling the submissive woman fantasy. See?! See?! Add the fact that he injects part of his soul into her is somethingsomething even worse racism!! Finally, she gets killed by a white boy fulfilling the somethingsomething racism. Oh the horror!

This is what is wrong with the drones. They have been taught that the mixing of two races in some endeavor must be racists, so they keep spewing until they say enough tropes to form a racist theory. Then they act all smug about it on twitter (where idiots go to prove their idiocy, triggering other drones). Soon it's a festival of moron-induced hate and smugness. It's the same time with Kavanaugh. When men and women engage in some endeavor, the drones know that it's about sexism and they decry the racist, sexist male involved. Rape! Rape!

It's like an idiot computer stuck in a loop screaming 404 Error at the top of their lungs and mistaking this for wisdom. Honestly, we've hit a point where these people are just a menace.

As a final aside, the owner of the LA Times said something interesting about social media today. While calling it the cancer of our time, he noted that it wrongly teaches "people" (the drones) that popularity equals truth. Yeah, that just about sums up the modern left.

What You Need To Know About Kavanaugh

Here's what you need to know about Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser, "Dr." Christine Blasey Ford.

Dr. Christine accused Brett Kavanaugh of trying to rape her in 1982 at a party she attended when they were in high school. She first raised the allegation in 2012 while in couples therapy trying to save her failing marriage. At the time, she accused four men of participating and apparently named someone other than Kavanaugh. After thirty years of silence and then this story, she now knows it was Kavanaugh and one friend. The other two must have been a false memory... just like the name she originally accused.

Of course, memory is very unreliable and therapy often raises false memories of things that never happened. Hence, an allegation that didn't exist for 30 years should be basically dismissed... unless the allegation can be used to destroy a Republican.

Her attorney claims she has no obligation to support her allegations, which is utter bullsh*t. Guilt by allegation is Kafkaesque and there is no legal system in the world that doesn't require the accused to pass some initial burden of persuasion. Even the Nazis required that.

In any event, she has pointed to four witnesses. However, all four have denied any knowledge of said party and none witnessed the supposed event. The Kavanaugh friend she accuses of helping rape her denied that it ever happened. One friend who wasn't named tried to claim that "everybody knew" about the party, but then backed off and said she knew nothing.

Despite the entire MSM and Democratic agents desperately investigating their little hearts out to find support for her, none have been able to add any bit of support. Nada.

On the other hand, Kavanaugh apparently kept calendars at the time of things he did and places he went. There is no mention of this party. He also has 46 years of documented behavior that entirely conflicts with these claims.

The obvious answer: this is a false memory... or a lie.

Nevertheless, the MSM and the Democrats have been in character assassination mode. They have run articles telling us that Kavanaugh's prep school was full of evil drunk males... you know, rapists. Kavanaugh once told a joke, 'What happens in prep school stays in prep school'... clearly admitting he's hiding rapes. DO YOU REMEMBER HOW BAD REPUBLICANS WERE TO ANITA HILL?!! 54 women came out in support of Kavanaugh, but they're all attractive so they're lying sluts. In fact, did you know that Kavanaugh only hires attractive women? A professor at Yale advised women who applied to clerk for him to dress "in a certain way" (//wink wink) and her husband once told one them, "You know he only hires women with a certain look." (//wink wink wink) Both the professor and her husband flatly deny this, but they're liars. Rumor has it Yale is now even investigating the husband for "grooming" young women for Kavanaugh. In other words, he's sexually used those 54 women. (//wink wink)

Despicable.

Then there's article after article trying to bolster the usual sexual assault crap:
1. Women don't lie. False. Apparently, the women who accused Bill Clinton lied, as did the woman accusing Democrat Keith Ellison right now... among armies of others.

2. Women don't report because of fear. Fear of what? A high schooler from a different school? Isn't it funny that women who accuse famous Republicans never seem to report like real victims do?

3. There's nothing unusual about women making false allegations first so long as they eventually remember the truth. Women might even tell wild ass false stories before they zero in on the right ones. False. Memory is inherently faulty to begin with. Evidence that the memory keeps changing should be discrediting.

4. To question her story makes her a victim a second time. False. To let her make an allegation without being subject to cross-examination is star chamber justice. By the way, Hillary Clinton once gave me a handjob against my will in an opium den... or maybe it was the White House? It was horrible. Four people saw it, including Bernie Sanders, but they won't remember it. To question me on this will only victimize me again. So, somebody go tell her that she needs to withdraw from public life. It's only fair to me.

5. She has nothing to gain. False. She's stated that she wants to stop him. To be the person to destroy a political opponent is a powerful motive. There is also fame, glorious victimhood with its lifetime speaking engagements, and the same thing rapists get out of committing rape -- the feeling of power they get from destroying someone else.

6. She didn't even want to come forward. Yeah, bullsh*t. She called a Democrat with the intent of this destroying Kavanaugh, which only a retard would think would not require her testifying. When she didn't get the traction she wanted, she hired a famous feminist attorney to get this out. Then she did an interview with a national newspaper. You can't get more "I want this public" than that! Her claim of "reluctantly" agreeing to come forward on a national stage is for PR purposes only.

7. She's getting death threats! So? So is Kavanaugh. That's part of modern political life. That doesn't make her allegations true.

8. All her friends say she can't be lying. Ironically, this comes from the same people who acted confused why it mattered that 54 women would support Kavanaugh. His supporters meant nothing, they told us. But her friends and family saying they support her is apparently proof that she couldn't be lying.
Finally, almost all of the Democrats have publicly said they believe her, even though she supposedly hasn't spoken to any of them or told her story. So what are they basing this on other than wishful thinking and bias?

This is a smear of the most despicable kind.

A Drone Without Guidance

From the corner of my darkened room... hugging my knees...

I ended my decades long boycott of Nike over their labor practices in foreign countries. Something about child labor... I'm not sure. I bought the Nikes because they hired Colvin Kaepernack as their CEO, something which upset the hateful conservatives I know. He hates America and that's patriotic, so I needed to support him. I felt so proud.

Today, I learn that Nike gives three times as much to Republicans as they give to Democrats. I'm boycotting In and Out Burger because they give to racist Republicans. I feel I should boycott Nike now too, but I need to support Colvin Kaepernack in his quest to prove how racist America is.

What should I do? Should I burn something? Tell me who to hate! Why doesn't someone tell me what I deeply believe?!! Why doesn't somebody do something?!!

The End Is Nigh

There are still no big stories worth writing about, so more thoughts!

● The left loves to claim that they are on the right side of history. Yet, the Kavanaugh smear and other instances like it will be remembered historically as the second age of the witch hunt... or perhaps The Age of McCarthy Redux.

● The Carolina floods have claimed the lives of 1.7 million chickens. Without those votes, the Democrats are sure to lose. In all seriousness though, doesn't that seem Biblical. And the Lord did say, "I hate chicken" and he wiped out 1.7 million chickens. So we ate beef, and it was GOOD!

● Speaking of Biblical things, Burt and Ernie from Sesame Street are not gay. So says their creator, Frank Oz. In fact, he said, they are just puppets and puppets don't have orientations. I'm glad to hear this from him. To claim otherwise, as a former Sesame Street writer has (he tried to claim they are gay), sexualizes something that should not be sexual. It also puts an intolerable suspicion on same-sex friendships, which of course is what the left has done -- take a history course and you'll hear how every single person or person who had a same-sex friend just had to be gay. Idiots. Maybe some people just don't think with their genitalia? Ever consider that lefties?

● I'm still high on the Dorco razor stuff (no, they have never paid me a penny or offered anything). I finally got through the whole sample pack I bought and I'm super happy. $40 for a year and a half worth of razors is amazing. In the end, I like the 3 blade ones. Anything higher than that clogs too quickly and wears out to fast. So if you're thinking about razors, that's my recommendation.

● It is not news when some celebrity "claps back" against some troll. That just publicity.

● Anderson Cooper looks sooooo pissy responding to Don Trump Jr. calling his water stunt fake. Trump definitely got under Cooper's skin. Ha ha.

● Cruz is up by 9% in Texas now. No surprise. Despite all the media shock, Cruz was always going to win.

More Random Observations

The sound of one brain cell shaking...

● The Kavanaugh attack is pretty despicable and it really reflects poorly on what's left of the #metoo movement. This is so obviously a smear, and to have the #metooers whining that it's unfair that she had to reveal her name, her lawyer saying it's not the accuser's job to back up her claim, and progressives whining that the allegation alone is enough to force him to withdraw really eviscerates any credibility they had left. I guess they never read Kafka. Or at least, they took the wrong lesson from it.

I love too how they all acted confused and outraged that 54 women who knew Kavanaugh throughout his life all wrote a letter saying he would never do such a thing, or how they tried to dismiss as irrelevant the woman's only witness saying this never happened. There's no credibility there.

● Monday Night Football has a "commercial free" halftime show. It starts with a commercial. Then halfway through it does a sort of music break which is really just a slick commercial/video for their product. On several occasions, the hosts talked about the sponsor. And finally, it ended halfway through the halftime, so the other half was almost entirely commercials. Sadly, I'm not surprised.

● The rabbits in our neighborhood have gotten uppity. We have one who suns his rather husky self in the backyard with impunity. The little bastard lies on his back sleeping!! Talk about living the good life. The only predator they have at the moment is cars and those try to miss them.

● Spent Sunday up in the mountains looking at the Aspens as they changed from green to yellow to gold to red. It was beautiful. I love going into the mountains, it reminds you how amazing this planet is.

● According to some study, machines will do more "tasks" than humans by 2025. Of course, that's bullship. That's one of those things that is simply impossible to measure. In fact, when you consider what cars and computers do today, I'd bet that machines already do billions more "tasks" than humans.

● Our youngest is upset. The school has told the eighth graders they need to stop "butt slap Friday." Yeah, you read that right. Apparently, they were sneaking up on each other and slapping each other hard on the butts... on Fridays. They saw nothing wrong with this. LOL! I love kids. Anyways, the school disagreed. The students claim they won't stop. I guess we'll see Friday who wins. Might need the national guard.

● It sounds like the Emmy's were a nasty little affair... stress the word little. The more political these dipsticks get, the less relevant they become. MTV apparently can't even attract a million kids anymore. 11.5 million viewers watched the Emmy's last year, the lowest ever. I'll bet they fall even farther this year. The Oscars and Grammys are at an all-time low as well. Keep going jerks, you're doing fine.

The Nike Ad

I told you the other day that Nike is in trouble and that I know this from them running an ad, right? Well, I found it again. In fact, I don't seem to be able to avoid it. So let's discuss...

As I pointed out, when companies make stupid decisions, they publicly deny that their decision was stupid or that it cost them anything. This is part of a herd policing strategy -- if you tell everyone that everything is ok, most people will accept that as true. Then their supporters (paid or otherwise) will back this up by spinning whatever news they can.

So how do you know they're in trouble? They start running ads you've never seen before that try to whitewash what they've done. You see this all the time in DC, whenever Lockheed or Boeing gets busted for some accounting issues or whatever, their ads mysteriously appear overnight on television in the DC area touting how trustworthy and indispensable they are. There's never an announcement that they started this advertising, nor do the ads directly mention the controversy nor have you usually seen ads from them before, but they suddenly appear all over the place in an attempt to bolster the company image, and they usually say the direct opposite of the trouble they are in.

When they get in deep trouble, like Wells Fargo, the ads can even get rather pointed and might make a heavily-spun reference to the scandal. Recent Wells Fargo ads, for example, talk about how they are a company built on trust starting in the 1880s and continuing until today until something nebulous somehow kinda sorta happened to the company... but it will never happen again... we're winning back your trust from that thing that may or may not have happened! Usually though, these ads aren't that clearly connected to the scandal, they just say the opposite of whatever has happened.

You see this with actors too. A great example is when actors are exposed as utter morons. You will suddenly see all kinds of publicity stories which tout how smart the actor supposedly is. Alicia Silverstone and Hilary Swank are examples of this. Ann Hathaway is forced to deny that she's a total b*tch. Etc.

Anyways, the Colin Kaepernick thing is the perfect example of this. Nike hired Kaepernick for a particular reason, which I'll discuss in a moment. The media, which supports Kaepernick's ideology, tells us that everybody loves him and produces oddly skewed, limited polls that suggest that the public either supports him or isn't bothered by him. They interview only people who support him and describe those who are offended by him in racist terms. They ignored Nike's initial stock price fall of 3% the day the Kaepernick ad campaign was announced, but now are touting that Nike is "at an all time high" as if the two are related (Nike was at an all time high the day it made the announcement, so really the needle hasn't moved). They even did stories on how brilliant the campaign is because Kaepernick brought them millions in free publicity.

So all is good right? Well, no.

See, Kaepernick makes people angry. Kaeprnick is a failed quarterback who got benched after going 3-16 in his last two years. When he got benched, he suddenly started kneeling through the national anthem in protest of whatever. He later claimed it was American racism, police violence and a dozen other things. He then wore socks that called the police pigs, praised Castro in Cuba and became a supporter of angry, radical black racism. This angered vast swaths of white America. The MSM, however, loves him and has done their best to promote him. And what's resulted is that Kaepernick has become a symbol of black anger, like Black Lives Matters -- whom he supports, with blacks supporting him at about 70% and whites opposing him at about 70%.

Enter Nike. Nike signed him to a ridiculous new campaign in which this multimillionaire celebrity claims that he gave up everything to fight for what he believes. He must be a fan of Florida bankruptcy laws, because nowhere else does keeping millions of dollars and staying in all the right social clubs constitute giving up everything. But hey, more power to this fraud.

Why hire him? Nike made this decision because they tap into the black thug market for customers. Just check out their ads and you can see this. Their ads are aimed at ghetto blacks complete with bad sportsmanship, hyper-machoism, the flashing of gang signs, and suggestions of race hate. So signing Kaepernick was a no-brainer. He fits their target market perfectly! Here's the Kaepernick ad:


Unfortunately for Nike, the other part of Nike's market is Starbucks moms who like to wear the gear because it's comfortable and it makes them look like they've been working out. Nike, I suspect, assumed that Starbucks moms wouldn't be offended by their hiring Kaepernick because they probably wouldn't know about it. And even if they did, Starbucks moms like to think of themselves as good liberals who support those cute little black people who need our help so much. Noble savages + white woman's burden.

Something has gone wrong, however, apparently. How do I know? The advertising. Nike didn't advertise on pinterest before this. Now they suddenly are. I'm betting that Kaepernick scared these women. They love supporting neutered black people, but don't like threatening ones and Kaepernick is threatening. He does not give off the warm fuzzies, he gives off the angry gonna-get-yous, and I'll bet they stopped buying Nike yoga pants and leggings. So lo and behold, Nike has suddenly released an ad on pinterest, where Starbucks moms spend their days, and that ad involves a gosh darn cute little black boy. See below:


Isn't he so cute? Look at those fat cheeks and that hair and the oversized clothes! He's so cuddly... he's like a teddy bear... he's so... so harmless. And aw, he's all by himself. He's so adoptable.

What this ad is designed to do is to dissipate Colin Kaepernick fear by reminding these liberalish white women of the types of blacks they like and have been adopting for years. It is designed to convert Kaepernick into a harmless teddy bear and to remind these women that they see blacks as noble savages. Best of all, since the thug community don't go on pinterest, the thug market will never know about it. This way, Nike can sell them black power revolution at the same time it's selling white women tame black people. Interestingly, it seems the only thing Nike doesn't sell in this debate is independent, competent blacks.

I will be curious to see what Nike's next move is.

More Stuff

Some things to consider. Deregulation plus tax cuts on the people who do the hiring and produce the nation's wealth. Shortly thereafter...

Lowest unemployment in forever.
Lowest jobless claims in forever.
Lowest black unemployment in forever.
Lowest female unemployment in forever.
Highest middle income worth ever.
Highest middle income assets ever.
Highest stock market ever.
Highest growth in decades.
Highest Democratic anger in years.

It's like Reagan all over again. Gee, I wonder what the common threat could have been?

The Democrats are hilariously whining that income inequality hasn't gone down since 2001 and this is Trump's fault. Notice whose entire administration rests in the middle of that period. Notice also that if income inequality didn't change, but growth is up, then everyone benefited from Trump's economy.

As an aside, I've been thinking. Do you know who Trump is? Trump is Andrew Jackson. He's the nutjob outsider who got elected despite a system rigged toward insiders, and once he got there, the insiders sh*t upon him so much that he retaliated in shocking ways like wiping out their Second Bank of the United States.

At the same time, Bush/Obama (who could easily be the same man) are basically the modern version of Ulysses Grant, generally likeable and useless, they presided over an age of massive corruption and insider dealing when the US government was for sale to the connected.

Continuing on a thread, Lebron James wants to be Oprah. He's at the end of his career and is now trying to follow in her footsteps by venturing into television production and advice giving. He opened a school, and he's even stating not-at-all controversial "controversial" opinions to sound edgy without offending anyone, just like Oprah.

Ug

I'm having one of those depressed days looking at the news. It's hard to remember that the news is essentially controversy junkies cherry-picking the worst of humanity and that the rest of the human race isn't like that. Sigh. Anyways, here are some random thoughts.

● "OMG! There's a hurricane! WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE!!!" I hate the media. They do this every time anything happens, especially hurricanes. They pull a freak out and talk about imagined worst case scenarios so far beyond the point of reality that they rival apocalypse fiction. It's ridiculous.

● I'm sick of clickbait. If your headline reads like clickbait, I don't click anymore. I don't care who you are.

● The NFL season "is over" for about 20 teams now... according to sportwriters. The same sportswriters who, by the way, have gone right back to glorifying big hits after whining about concussions all off season. Some even said they couldn't morally cover the league anymore and yet here they are. Hypocrites. Anyways, after one game, they have pronounces most of the league finished. Hot takes are for morons.

● I think Nike is in trouble on the Colin Kapernick thing. When Nike signed America hater Colin Kapernick, the calculation they made was typical, but ridiculous. Nike made the assumption that their market is basically angry blacks and young whites who don't care or who might not like it, but won't do anything about it. Basically, this was virtue signalling for their target audience. Based on that, some analysts have claimed that Nike scored over $145 million in free publicity. Victory, right?

Ok, but whenever corporations get in trouble, they deny they are in trouble and then you see them suddenly open new avenues of advertising in which they try to paint a picture of how great they are without ever mentioning the scandal. Wells Fargo did this most recently, but I've seen it regularly from groups as diverse as Monsanto, Boeing and Kraft. It's what companies do. (Watch for Serena Williams ads to appear touting her niceness and shyness.) So in the middle of all this talk about how Nike scored and how twitter likes the Kapernick ad (Twitter is a worthless measure of anything), and how their stock price has regained all it lost... I'm suddenly seeing Nike ads on Pinterst, where they've never been before. Why pinterest? Because Nike's biggest market is Starbucks moms, the group Nike thought would be sympathetic to Kapernick or would remain passive. That tells me Nike has a problem.

● I'm amazed at how often a "fact" gets repeated by newspapers even after it's been debunked.

● Did you know that Subway got rid of ham because of complaints by them Muuuslims? So said this GOP bulletin I get every few days. Funny, mine still sells ham.

● It looks like the cryptocurrencies, like bitcoin, have been exposed as, well, worthless. Duh.

● I actually don't care that Alex Jones is getting banned. I'm a big believer in freedom of speech even being extended to cover big companies that make themselves akin to utilities, but I think the crap Jones sells is beyond free speech. It's in the realm of fraud and lies and slander, which has never been protected. I am troubled that conservatives are latching themselves onto him. Pick your figurehead victim better folks.

● Some numbers that might interest you. Sports talk is as poisonous as political talk radio, maybe even moreso. It's pure hate. And the television now seems to be full of these sports talk shows. So what are their ratings? The biggest is around 150,000 people with most in the 100,000 range. So we're talking less than a million if they all have totally unique audiences, which they don't. So just like with talk radio, which is about 5,000,000 people TOPS, sports talk isn't even a statistical blip. Hence, all this hate you see floating around the internet and the newspapers is being driven by about 1% of the population. Similarly, did you know that the American socialist parties have about 50,000 members? They can't even fill a stadium.

● I hate mommy bloggers. Just hate them. "Like, OMG, like 10 things you'll just hate about Disney! //giggle giggle Like, it's so great that OMG you'll hate to leave. //giggle giggle unicorn fart" If I ever meet a real person who acts this plastic, I will savagely beat them to death. Hopefully you can come watch the trial.

Race and Gender Stuff

Quite a bit of race and gender stuff in the news.

● The big thing in the news right now is Serena William's outburst. What a spoiled brat. Her coach tried to cheat by offering her advice while she was on the court through a hand signal. The referee caught this and gave her a penalty. She promptly lost her mind and spent the next ten minutes railing against this umpire. She accused him of sexism for making the call and for adding more penalties after she called him a thief and accused him of bias (a huge no-no in sports). She then lost the match and, even though she was outclassed, she has been suggesting that this referee's sexism is what cost her. Poor sportsmanship. What's more, she's stripped her opponent of her tremendous victory and made it all about her.

Naturally, some of the #metoo'ers jumped up and said that this had to be sexism because a woman said it, but it wasn't. It's a rule. She knew it. She broke it. She got punished. How is that sexism? Moreover, her opponent was also female, so how can it be sexism? What's more, she lied. She made a huge point that she doesn't cheat and then her coach admitted that he was trying to cheat. And none of her supporters seem to care that a nice, impressive your lady got screwed out of her moment in the sun. Nice.

● Speaking of racism, Adrian Peterson, an aging NFL Player, attacked one of his critics in the most interesting of ways. Cris Carter said that Peterson is washed up (his last two lousy season justified that comment) and shouldn't play. Peterson naturally objected, which is fine. Except Peterson added that he was outraged that Carter and others had said this because "they [are] black men... how dare you." So according to Peterson, it was wrong for a black man to criticize him because, apparently, blacks should not criticize blacks. If a white person had said that, it would definitely be shocking and considered racist. Yet, all the sports writers who keep looking for racism and outrage everywhere seemed to miss this point.

● For some reason I cannot imagine, they have rebooted Magnum PI. Why? Anyways, the guy playing Magnum (Jay Hernandez) is Hispanic and Magnum is supposed to be Mexican American. Ok, whatever. But an interview in which he describes getting the role, this dude spread a very standard minority victimology myth. He said he was proud to put an heroic Mexican American up on screen because when he was growing up, the only brown faces you ever saw on screen were the villains. Huh, ok. Name them. Seriously, you can't because they didn't exist.

This is something that is taken as a matter of faith on the left. The only brown faces on screen were either maids (Gone With The Wind) or villains until the modern era, with the idea being that this is how what America viewed them. But this is crap. Hollywood never used minorities in as villains. Maybe in the 1940s they were rare and took bit parts, but so did all but a handful of famous whites. By the 1950s, the blacks appearing on screen were people like Sidney Poitier and action heroes like James Brown, or women like Ertha Kitt. Each decade thereafter saw more and more of them too. This idea that evil racist Hollywood created a stereotype of brown people as villains is bull. Even inn Westerns, where there was a Mexican villain whenever they went to Mexico simultaneously found most of the Mexicans on screen treated very sympathetically. This claim is racist myth-making.

● Finally, I had to chuckle. Marvel DC has created a lesbian superhero: Batwoman. They even picked a lesbian actress to play her, as you must. Hurray, finally! Right? LOL! Wrong. Apparently, she's not lesbian enough as she once claimed to be bi, and the lesbian community is angry about it. Snicker snicker. Idiots.

The left really is packed with idiots.
