    Rhetorical question to Conservative Trump supporters:

    Rhetorical question to Conservative Trump supporters:

    Are you going to angry at yourself or others for the Trump disaster?
    Are you going to blame yourself or others for the Trump disaster?

    You could have chosen the Conservative candidates.
    You could have become informed of Trump many and varied flaws and realized their liabilities in the upcoming general election.
    You could have thought long and hard on the issues.

    You could have done something OTHER than blithely dismiss all the new revelations and gaffes made by Trump over the past few weeks.
    You could have realized the extreme importance of this election with regard to the future of the nation.

    But you didn’t do that did you?

    Instead of becoming informed you dismissed Trump’s flaws.
    Instead of actually thinking instead of simply emoting over Trump’s incessant LIAR accusations.
    Instead of carefully considering the options on THE most important political decision you will ever make you ‘punted’ and gave into the bandwagon effect.
    And each day as new allegations and bizarre behaviour by Trump became apparent, you ignored the warning signs and stuck to your previous decision.

    Hopefully you can live with yourself for your lack of due diligence.

  • OMG! It’s a picture of an empty suit – of a head with no sign of intelligent life inside!

  • Obama trying to destroy the financial advisor career field:

    It goes well beyond the scope of this article. If these ridiculous rules go into effect (again, an end run around Congress, by the way) giving financial advice will be dangerous and could cost you everything.

  • Lib-tard moonbat spin on why more Americans aren’t working:

    And tells some whoppers in the process – those who COULD be working but aren’t, thanks to liberals and their job-destroying policies, is the number that is at record highs.

    Amazingly, the article admits this – but most liberals will only show us the first chart and will hide the second:

    Look back some more years, though, and the story is different. The recent gains are real, but by the standards of the past few decades, a 59.8 percent employment-to-population ratio isn’t impressive.

    But look at this convoluted logic:

    A 59.8 percent employment-to-population ratio means that 40.2 percent of American civilians 16 and over don’t have jobs. That percentage includes high-school students, 100-year-olds and lots of other people who don’t want or need jobs, so the true unemployment rate clearly isn’t 40 percent.

    No, sorry, they may not WANT or NEED jobs, but they’re still unemployed. So they DO count as part of the “true unemployed”.

    The answer that I keep gravitating to is that despite the 4.9 percent unemployment rate, the job market is still pretty weak, and probably malfunctioning in some way.

    Yeah, obamacare, other Obama actions, mostly unconstitutional, legislating with his phone and his pen, for instance.


    It is widely accepted that American public schools are controlled by liberals. It seems like every day, we see new examples of American schoolchildren being indoctrinated with left-wing ideas.

    This latest example was brought to our attention by a concerned parent.

    Kindergarten students from PS75, a public school in New York City, recently took part in a class project in which the children were made to create an American flag with the flags of other 22 other nations superimposed over the stripes. Below the flag read the words “We pledge allegiance to an International Flag.”

    Although the description claims that the flags are limited to “Spanish speaking countries”, the Russian flag is amongst those that are included.

    This is the type of globalist indoctrination we have come to expect from the public school system, but telling impressionably young American children that their loyalty should lie with some nebulous idea of a global community rather than their own nation is a new low.



    Americans tell Trudeau to mind his own business and perhaps get his head out of his ass while he’s at it.

    Then again, he does have one narrow point. If more liberals were aware of the unmitigated disaster Obama/Democrat policies have made of American interests all over the world, one hopes they would stop voting Democrat.

    But don’t bet on it.


    The plummeting price of oil on international markets has had many effects – one of which is that it may be cheaper for ships to travel right around Africa than go through the Suez Canal – hence my remark, above.

    Shipping firms pay what amounts to several billion dollars every year to the Suez Canal Authority, an Egyptian state-owned entity, for the privilege of travelling via the canal.

    To take an example, it cuts a modern journey from Singapore to Rotterdam in the Netherlands by nearly 3,500 nautical miles – saving vessel owners lots of time and lots of money.

    However, more and more some ships are deciding not to take the Suez route. Instead, they are travelling around the Cape of Good Hope, right at the southern tip of Africa. Over 100 ships did this between late October 2015 and the end of the year.

    “I’ve been covering shipping for the last eight years,” says Michelle Wiese Bockmann, from oil industry analysis firm OPIS Tanker Tracker. “It is very rare to see this volume going round the Cape.”

    There are steep fees for using the Suez Canal – Maersk says these can be approximately $350,000 (£249,000) per ship. There are other costs, too. Rose George, author of Deep Sea and Foreign Going, was on board a ship using the Canal a few years ago. She notes that vessels must agree to taking on a Suez crew for the transit.

    “[The Suez crew] seem to do nothing but listen to tinny radio and try to sell souvenirs,” says George, adding the ships often have to pay a cigarette ‘tax’.

    “On each voyage, Suez costs a ship about £400 ($560) of cigarettes, as well as dozens of chocolate bars from the bond locker.”

    I voted for Reagan. I voted for Bush sr. both times. I voted for George Bush both times. I voted for McCain. I voted for Romney. If Trump wins nomination should I not vote? I cannot control who the Republican party nominates.

  • Well I guess hell froze over!

    Sean Penn is nostalgic for George W. Bush

    Only the real reason is the unmitigated disaster that is the Obama administration.

    And it’s interesting how he weaves his own lies and misconceptions in with the truth. Truth is in bold, lies are in italics:

    Penn grimaced, then said maybe he’s simply not being democratic enough in how he thinks about the election because he’s clearly not taking into account “the true interests of my fellow Americans.”“So many of them truly want to hate each other, want to bottom out their community so they can rise up in it, want to really devastate the rest of the world and maybe get into a civil war,” he said.

    Well, if he’s talking about Democrats and their strategy of sinking all boats equally, of turning us against each other, of playing up differences to drive us apart, then yeah, maybe that part was also true.

  • More Obama administration abuses:

    I’m having trouble getting that one to load – let me know if it works for you. The gist of it is Obama is using OUR MONEY to feed and shelter illegal Cuban immigrants in Costa Rica (Ever dreamed of vacationing there? Pretend your an illegal Cuban immigrant and Obama will pay for it!) while he figures out how to use OUR MONEY to illegally bring them here.

  • I just might be under cyber attack – every time I post in certain liberal echo chambers I start having serious internet issues…

    Here’s another link that I seem to be unable to resolve:

    The gist is that, thanks to the Obama administration, we can expect annual surges of huge quantities of illegal immigrants from all over. It’s part of something you’ve no doubt heard of – the Cloward-Piven strategy.

    Under direct orders from Obama, instead of hiding from border patrol agents, illegal aliens are now being told that the border patrol will HELP THEM TO ENTER THE U.S. ILLEGALLY. In other words Obama has ordered them to do THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF THE LAW.

    If this is not an impeachable offense, I don’t know what is.

  • Other than this site, since I’m already in it, I suddenly cannot access any NEW sites. This happens whenever I post in certain liberal echo chambers.

  • Thought for the day: Machiavellianism, narcissism and psychopathy are traits that combine to create liberal moonbats and Democratic politicians. Their downsides include aggressiveness and risk-taking behaviors that put this nation and it’s peoples at risk.

  • Party safe this weekend: New evidence shows that MDMA can seriously mess up your brain.

    A new study on liberal moonbats who had used the drug more than 11 times and conservatives who had never tried it, researchers found that the first group had significantly poorer cognitive functioning. Of course there’s no proof of which is the cause and which is the effect, because other studies show liberal moonbats generally have significantly poorer cognitive functioning.

  • In the hoax of the year, a retired LAPD officer reveals he was given a knife found buried on the edge of OJ SImpson’s former property in L.A., which he says he was given some years ago by some unnamed construction worker doing some work there.

    The LAPD is allegedly engaged in a double secret investigation of the knife and related circumstances.

    But there’s good news for OJ. Until liberals pass an ex post facto Bill of attainder against him, or suspend double jeopardy (5th Amendment) in his case, double jeopardy laws protect him from any legal ramifications even if Nicole’s DNA is found on this suspect knife.

  • Donna M

    Hey Bod,
    Now that’s hilarious! Considering all the drugs that our dear, progladite, prez Wormwood, exposes his brain to.
    He should have his ghost writer, write him, yet again, another successful book, entitled, “The Wormwood Loser Legacy, the Brain Dead Years in Office”!
    Bettin’ it’ll be a great #1 best seller!

  • Miss ya!

  • And you thought OUR moonbats were bad… in Malawi moonbats hunt you for sport if you commit the crime of being white… well, albino, anyway:

    Criminal gangs nicknamed “albino hunters” and armed with machetes, knives and axes are striking fear into people living with albinism in Malawi, abducting and often killing their victims in broad daylight and in the dead of night, prompting police to announce a shoot-to-kill policy.

    The latest victim of the brutal attacks is a nine-year old boy with albinism from Malawi’s eastern district of Machinga. His mother Edna Cedrick tried to rescue her son when two attackers abducted him last Friday.

    A police officer from Machinga district, Isaac Ndala, confirmed the abduction, adding that the kidnappers injured the boy’s mother.

  • Conservation group Greenpeace is making wild claims about the environmental impact of the Fukushima nuclear crisis but, to date, has not provided a single shred of evidence to back up any of their mere claims.

    They make vague noises about peer-reviewed, published works, but fail to actually present any of those, either.

  • Another amazing example of the Obama administrations inept handling of things.

    Who would have thought they would pick THIS GUY for THIS JOB?

    New VA hotline chief has a history of dropped calls from veterans

    A former Air Force officer chosen to fix the VA’s problem-plagued suicide hotline has been running other agency phone banks that have a poor record of service, dropping as many as one in five calls from veterans, according to internal data provided to USA TODAY.

  • And I posted earlier about the knife found at OJ Simpson’s former residence and said it was most likely a hoax, then I found this story, allegedly from the guy who is claimed to have found it and given it to the other guy who kept it hidden for all these years, allegedly:

    Knife find ‘a joke’ says man who demolished O.J. Simpson’s former home

    “He evoked a lot of emotion in a lot of people. He’s definitely a figure in history – not a good one,” said Weber, owner of Weber-Madgwick Inc., the construction company that razed Simpson’s old home in 1998.

    On Friday, police breathed new life into the 1994 case of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman when the LAPD announced that a retired officer recently gave them a knife that he said was buried on the Simpson property.

    The knife was reportedly found by a demolition crew worker who helped raze Simpson’s Brentwood mansion, authorities said.

    On Friday, Weber said he was having none of this knife talk.

    “I think it’s a joke. I think it’s just filler … no one on my crew found anything” said Weber, 70. “I had instructed my people, ‘If you find anything, don’t keep it. Tell me, we’ll take the appropriate action.’”

    Ever since the knife news broke Friday morning, Weber said he’s been getting emails from friends with links to online stories, some with one-liners recalling how he told the media back in 1998 he would look for the weapon.

    “Jokingly, I said I was looking for the knife. And that’s not just being flippant. We never found it.”

  • Donna M

    Oh my! This is way too funny!
    Ya’ know that N. Korea has threatened the West with release of nuclear weapons…again!
    …and whaddy-ya-know!
    I turn on the TV and guess what’s playin’…?

    What a great movie! Fantasy is certainly ” better”, than reality…
    N. Korea outsmarts the prez…say it isn’t sooooo…!
    Especially, when ya’ gots a “ghetto”, in the white-washed- house!

  • Plus a preliminary assessment shows the knife is a plant, not related to the crime:

  • Pandering to prisoners:–abc-news-topstories.html

    Yeah, I get it, but still… how is it wrong that he winds up suffering a little?

    After what he did?

    Holmes, 28, was not supposed to cross paths with anyone but prison staff while housed in the Colorado State Penitentiary in Canon City. But documents obtained by ABC News show that, as Holmes exited the office of his case manager on Oct. 8, a prison staffer opened a sliding gate without realizing he was putting Holmes in close proximity with another inmate, convicted car thief Mark “Slim” Daniels. The officer escorting Holmes was unable to radio the officer controlling the gate “as his battery had gone dead,” according to a so-called “intelligence assessment” drafted after the incident occurred.

    With the sliding gate opened and Holmes within striking distance, Daniels, according to the reports, “ran through the slider, squeezing through as it was closing toward offender Holmes … Offender Daniels began hitting offender Holmes, in and around his head, with his fist.”

    The documents paint a picture of a brief but frenzied incident with officers shouting “No. Don’t do it,” while “Daniels kept swinging over the top of [one officer’s] head, still hitting offender Holmes.” The officer escorting Holmes wrote that Daniels “landed at least two blows to offender Holmes before I was able to get behind” him.

    So now he’s going to have a lawsuit, get a settlement, and perhaps have reason to request some sort of leniency or clemency or maybe even some sort of release.

  • As I’ve said, there are three Democrats running, Trump, Clinton and Sanders.

    While I would be loath to vote for any of them, of the three Trump is the least of the evils, as bad as he is, IMHO.

  • A reboot allowed me to load it later:

    The yearend spike in Central American children and families illegally crossing the southwest border – a thorny problem with big implications for Georgia and other states – may be part of a “new normal,” the nation’s border chief said during a stop in Atlanta Friday.

    “We are watching it pretty carefully — we are concerned,” said U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske, who was visiting with police in Buckhead about human trafficking. “Perhaps we are seeing a new normal with a lot of people wanting to come across that southern border into the United States.”

  • A reboot allowed me to load it:

    The United States government has been paying to feed and shelter thousands of Cubans trying to migrate to the United States, in what critics consider another sign of the lopsided treatment provided to Cubans under American law.

    wicked, a fierce-looking king, a master of intrigue, will arise. 24 He
    will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause
    astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will
    destroy those who are mighty, the holy people. 25 He will cause deceit

    I’ve been reading Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism. It isn’t what I expected it to be. So far, I’ve learned that political scientists still don’t understand exactly what fascism is. From what I’ve read, it appears to be one of several versions of progressivism which all share government control over society as their goal. Fascism differs from communism only in that it is pragmatic. If allowing private ownership gets you to your goals, you do it. The end is more important than the means.

  • Torcer

    Vote Trump if that is the only choice, but there still is time to reverse course from the disaster.

  • Torcer

    Exactly and succinctly stated.
    As Ben Sasse stated the other day, it makes no sense to run a New York ‘Liberal’ with a penchant for lying against another New York ‘Liberal’ with a penchant for lying…

  • Agreed! Which is EXACTLY why Bill Clinton urged him to run in the first place!

  • Henry

    “Damn it, Mooch left the toilet seat up again!”

  • Henry

    What do you mean “finally come to an end”? There was never a beginning.

  • Alphamail

    No wondering here. The main problem with people who dis or hate Christians is they call the Bible a myth and characterize Christians as naïve. What they wholly fail to see is that the Bible is as much a history book as a religious text.
    Whether or not one believes Jesus was of immaculate conception, whether Elijah rose into heaven in a “whirlwind,” or whether Jesus was resurrected, is simply a religious matter of FAITH (belief in Holy miracles), but should never be confused with provable history of those times. Major Biblical battles can be shown to have occurred by even atheist archaeologists by examining the areas where the battles took place. They also unearth tombs of Biblical figures just as they do King Tut, as well as undeniable Biblical script and artifacts of those time periods. And history shows that many of the Biblical “prophets” made predictions that unquestionably and eerily came true.
    Regarding Jodie’s quote: Daniel was called a prophet of his day – whether you believe his prognostications or not. The point is, he was a living breathing person about 500 or so B.C.. During this time period the Roman Empire was in it’s early stages, Syria (“Assyrians”) had invaded and conquered Judah (one of two Jewish kingdoms – Israel and Judah), and the Assyrians had captured Jerusalem. Just like a Nero or Nebuchadnezzar or Cicero, there was a Jeremiah, a Jezebel, and a Daniel.
    It’s no doubt Daniel lived, and it’s no doubt that the quote Jodie posted is a historical quote from Daniel which has simply been “archived” in the Bible. It’s whether or not people give it any significance as it might apply to today. Anyone anywhere has the distinct right to not believe it applies to much of anything, but they should not ignore it was an historical event.
    Having said that, if you have read the Bible and studied it much at all, there are far too many circumstances, way too many coincidences, and so many unexplainable foretold outcomes, that it borders on the supernatural – hence our faith.

  • “Damn it, Mooch used the last of the toilet paper, didn’t replace the roll, and also clogged the damn toilet in the process, again!”

    There, fixed it for you both.

  • Worse THAN Carter – who formerly held the title of WORST EVER!

    There, fixed it for you.

  • I tend to support the literary, historical and moral interpretations of the Bible but always try to keep the predictive claims at arms length.

    The circumstances described in the quoted passages have no doubt repeated themselves over and over since the passage was written. That they are repeating themselves today, again, is really not that remarkable.

  • I will DEFINITELY be up to see you sometime soon. Keep my #. I’m doing a lot of gigging, some limited touring, so it won’t be until I get a break from that.

    Yes, the cold snaps did damage the leaves, but I have been taking good care to keep the tree alive.

  • True.

    Which is why I hope they see the light and choose the lesser of two evils, Cruz.

  • Alphamail

    Of course – keep it at arm’s length – no one asked you to do any different…! Where did you get that?
    Usually when someone puts up a Biblical quote here they are shown disdain by others who call it mythology and condemn the commenter as nuts. I finally decided to follow up a quote with an explanation that the Biblical quote is actually from an historical person – it was not just some inanimate ruthless quote from that nasty ole’ Bible. I suggested they take into regard that it is not fable, but is history, and they could even disregard any other significance.
    Having said that, I “personally” believe Daniel 8 is FAR more apropos than any time in history. Up until a few decades ago no battle could mean the end of the world – now, especially with concentrated viruses, toxins, gases, and nuclear weapons, and the ability to deliver them halfway across the planet on a moment’s notice, then any warning should be taken under advisement – even Biblical ones.
    If we are talking about people, namely Christians, then it is exponentially FAR more apropos in this day and age. Of the seven or more nations who have nuclear weapons only the U.S. is purportedly Christian and that is diminishing by the hour. Pakistan loves Christians correct? North Korea tolerates Christianity right? China loves the Bible, huh? Russia? And the country on the verge of getting a nuclear weapon (Iran) has promised to wipe out Israel (Daniel’s warning), as well as Christians and the United States, and is crucifying and head-chopping Christians by the thousands (ISIS) as we speak, just to prove to everyone that they mean what they say.
    As far as Christianity diminishing by the hour in America, just listen to some people on conservative websites bash Christians, look what the Supreme Court and the LGBT have done to punish Christianity, look what the Commander of this supposed Christian nation does: He says he will stand with Muslims should the s**t hit the fan; he has fired hundreds of Christian military high-level brass and replaced them with anti-Christian officers, a great many of whom are in the Pentagon; and the Pentagon, with Obama’s full support, forms opinions and issues orders often on the advice of the MRFF (Military Religious Freedom Foundation) headed by Mikey Weinstein, who calls Christians treasonous, extremist, militants, and monsters, and he succeeded in getting military chaplains threatened with arrest and court martial if they share the Gospel with soldiers who ask them to. I could go on and on.
    Needless to say, the threat to defeat or capture a tribe or nation was one thing, but today that threat is infinitely greater when it could annihilate all of humanity. Listening to all the warnings – both old and new – might be wise.

  • While I am not disparaging the possibility of the predictive aspect of the Bible, I simply do not personally go there.

    I didn’t mean/”get” anything, just sayin’.

    Yes, Daniel 8 is very appropriate today. Agreed!

    Thanks to Obama the threat of apocalyptic near-future events has grown astronomically – exponentially – is a near certainty, unfortunately.

  • Alphamail

    I don’t “go there” either, in the sense you’re referring to. And at least you see what my point was. Saying that, I’ve read it all and much of it has happened, and much more will happen – we just never know what or when – I understand it and appreciate it but neither do I “dwell” on it.
    Yup…..Obama’s Gamaliel agenda and Alinsky tactics combined with the Communist Manifesto/Frankfurt School goals = near-future apocalyptic events.

    Yes, history repeats itself, but this particular prophesy is specifically about the “end times” aka “the latter days”, as you can see in verse 19 of Daniel 8:

    “19 He said: ‘I am going to tell you what will happen later in the time of wrath, because the vision concerns the appointed time of the end.”

  • George Lortz

    That looks so natural on him.


    To some, the idea of the ‘end of days’ is more of a personal thing. The point is made that we won’t see it coming. These days, on a personal level, some of us do, actually. The father of a good friend of mine got an infection and didn’t deal with it until it was too late – it had spread through his body and the doctors couldn’t stop it – they could only keep him alive while his kids flew in and said goodbye to him. I’ve known too many people who died alone so as everyone slowly left the room, unable to watch him slip away, I wound up the only one with him when he finally passed.

    Some say parts of the Bible about the end of days referred to a time very soon after they were written, but history is cyclic, probably because there’s always someone who doesn’t bother to learn, or doesn’t choose to follow the lessons it teaches us. It may be said that the occasional advances of civilization come when someone does – only to be undone by the giant leap backwards due to someone that doesn’t. I have been pessimistic a few times in my life – and am becoming so now. Will it be the final end this time around? Perhaps, but I hope not.

  • Alphamail

    “Still, it’s odd that OTHERS keep telling me what an expert THEY think I am, when, clearly (at least from my point of view) I’m not.”
    IMHO you got to be an expert – and I believe you are – because of your obvious humility. My daughter and friends cannot believe my history and experiences, and often say the same thing or call me a genius. In my opinion that is ridiculous, I only did things I wanted to do – and besides (at least from my point of view), too many other people are real geniuses and I’m normal. When I say that they say I am too humble. Like you I have to shake my head and wonder what the heck they could be thinking.

    First, many of the young egocentric know-it-alls don’t appreciate experience and the knowledge it brings to the table – that doesn’t mean the older wizened soul knows it all or can’t be wrong, but a respectful ear invites knowledge.
    Last, my daughter affectionately calls me Forrest Gump doubled, and infers that I am a genius (both of which I simply attribute to a daughter’s love). By now she knows my standard answer which is: “In life it is extremely important to learn from your mistakes and I have tried to do that. So if I am as smart as you think I am, then just think about all the foolish missteps and the incredible number of mistakes I had to make to get here.”
    Humility is life’s best learning tool.
