The United Nations is useless...and also harmful. It is a land that flowers demagoguery with a bunch of newborn countries, devoid of any tradition. - Antonio de Oliveira Salazar



  • The United Nations is useless – true then, true now.

    EXAMPLE: Both Russia and China signed on to much stricter sanctions against North Korea.

    Immediately following that event, both Russia and China have ships that were caught providing oil to North Korea in violation of the sanctions resolution they voted for in the U.N.

  • They are correct when they say the teacher should have reviewed the material before recommending it to the students – but what is the Elementary School library doing with materials that include photos featuring nudity that might be objectionable in the first place?

    Still, given todays moonbat moral standards, it could have been much, much worse.

  • You want to know why many of us voted for Trump?

    Because he’s not going to give something unless he gets something in return:

    Trump says Dreamers won’t be protected without a border wall

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-says-dreamers-wont-be-protected-without-a-wall-first/

    President Trump says there won’t be protection for young immigrants brought into the country illegally unless he gets funding for a border wall and other items.

    Mr. Trump said on Twitter Friday: “The Democrats have been told, and fully understand, that there can be no DACA without the desperately needed WALL at the Southern Border and an END to the horrible Chain Migration & ridiculous Lottery System of Immigration etc.”

    He added: “We must protect our Country at all cost!”

    Chicago’s new flagship Apple store struggling with falling ice, cracking windows

    Chicago’s winter doesn’t seem to agree with the Norman Foster-designed structure

    The store’s fancy see-through walls also cost Apple some headaches—and a fair dose of negative PR—this fall when it was reported that a higher than expected number of migrating birds were fatally colliding with the store. The company ultimately dimmed its interior lighting to cut down on nighttime strikes during the peak of the migratory season.

    Even before glass was installed, the low-slung structure at 401 N. Michigan proved to be a bird-magnet. Gulls congregating on the roof during construction left behind an unsightly layer of guano and prompted Apple to install a series of pyramid-shaped bird deterrence devices.

  • Get your flu shot this year?

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2017/12/29/flu-season-early/990271001/

    Flu widespread in 36 states, CDC reports – deaths already have occurred in some states this flu season.

    I’ve been exposed to the flu several times and 4 of those times I got symptoms suggesting my immune system was activated – and fought it off by the next morning.

    All because I got my flu shot.

  • Screw the flu shot. I get the flu within a week or two after getting the shot. Every time. Many others have told me the same.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    “what is the Elementary School library doing with materials that include photos featuring nudity that might be objectionable in the first place?”

    Some people react that way. I get the shot and never get the flu. I guess it depends on the person.

    And this note of sadness:
    “A leftist college professor who infamously declared last December that the only thing he wanted for Christmas was “white genocide” and blamed “white people and men” for the Las Vegas massacre is resigning.

    George Ciccariello-Maher, who teaches political science at Drexel University, announced his resignation Thursday. He said he’ll no longer work at the Philadelphia school after Sunday.”

    He stated:
    ““In the face of aggression from the racist Right and impending global catastrophe, we must defend our universities, our students, and ourselves by defending the most vulnerable among us and by making our campuses unsafe spaces for white supremacists.”

    He was also a member of “Bring the Ruckus” http://www.bringtheruckus.org/
    Truly academia has lost a giant.

    No word on how Ciccariello-Maher got rid of his own whiteness.

    “The Trump administration has issued notice that it intends to repeal the 2015 Obama administration rule governing hydraulic fracturing on federal lands. The rule was issued by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).”

    http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/12/state_department_releases_huma_abedin_emails_found_on_weiner_laptop.html

    The State Department released hundreds of emails from top Clinton aide Huma Abedin found on the laptop of her ex-husband, Anthony Weiner. The release was the result of a FOIA suit brought by Judicial Watch.

    At least four of the emails were marked “classified.”

    Were it not for the fact that Huma Abedin is Hillary’s gal pal, sending four classified emails would have resulted in prison time.

    FRACK liberals!

    Sorry Bod, gotta disagree with you on this one.
    From what I have been able to find on interweb, there were not photos of nudity. Instead there were pictures of classical art paintings which showed a few glimpses of partial nudity which is common of art from that era.

    Furthermore we are talking about 12 year old kids. Kids at that age will get a rise from a bikini picture.

    After reading some of the readers’ comments it looks like there was more of a parent problem than a teacher problem. Much like when someone gets snotty over Mark Twain’s use of the word n***er.

    Trump’s playing chess while dimms play Chinese checkers. He’s 3 steps ahead of the bastards on every issue. I hope he maneuvers them into a position from which they feel compelled to “close the government”, then advertises which party did it. I hope he and those who support him on Crapital Hill take advantage of the fact that dimms and only dimms voted for o-bummer-care (behind locked doors, in the dead of night) and only republicans voted to let Americans keep more of our hard earned money!

    What a waste.

  • Moonbats still clearly don’t understand why so many sexual assaults and sexual inappropriate acts are occurring – as they continue to encourage their increased frequency:

    “Climate scientists” who warn of runaway global warming do so based on proven flawed computer models they wrote specifically to predict runaway global warming.

    They warn against listening to other scientists – because using actual observations of what’s happening, not simulations, those scientists warn of a coming extreme cold time that could even be a little ice age – the same thing predicted, though those predictions were denied by alarmists, in the 1970s.

    New York Subway Track Deemed ‘Most Expensive Mile…On Earth’

    http://dailycaller.com/2017/12/29/new-york-subway-track-deemed-most-expensive-mile-on-earth/

    President Donald Trump’s plans for an infrastructure bill may hit a snag with the Long Island Rail Road extension project that’s estimated to cost $12 billion in total — or nearly $3.5 billion for each new mile of track.

    That staggering $3.5 billion price tag is seven times higher than the average cost in the rest of the world.

    Many of those costs come from the city’s contractors and vendors, who typically profit margins that are 50 to 100 percent higher than in other countries.

    Of course, the mind-numbingly high cost of rail transport is nothing strange to New Yorkers. In early 2017, Manhattan residents saw the completion of phase one of the infamous Second Avenue Subway on the Upper East Side. The price tag was $4.4 billion, or $2.5 billion per mile.

    The astronomical costs of the “East Side Access” can be partially attributed to sheer negligence of those entrusted to oversee the project, which will connect Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan to Long Island, according to an investigation by The New York Times.

    An accountant discovered in 2010 that 200 individuals working on the 3.5-mile-long tunnel connecting the two railroads had essentially no reason to be on the job.

    “Nobody knew what those people were doing, if they were doing anything,” Michael Horodniceanu, who ran head of construction at New York’s Metropolitan Transportation, told TheNYT. The workers were eventually fired, but no one knows how long they were on the dole. “All we knew is they were each being paid about $1,000 every day,” Horodniceanu said.

    An internal report by the consulting firm Arup concluded that underground construction in New York “employs approximately four times the number of personnel as in similar jobs in Asia, Australia, or Europe.”

    Boss Tweed is smiling in Hell. His legacy lives on!

  • I am in agreement that this was a total overreaction. My point remains – you don’t send students off to something you haven’t checked first, if only to make sure it is something that will fulfill the desired lesson objectives.

    And “partial nudity” often includes exposed breasts and sometimes a penis or two… which shouldn’t be a problem, but it is.

  • Guadagnino majored in political science. Which isn’t a science, actually.

    “I think climate change is more complex than [the idea that] global warming will make it hotter,” 30-year-old Guadagnino replied to Trump on Thursday. “It has to do with disruptions of atmospheric conditions,ocean patterns, jet streams and s–t like that.”

    Actually the main theme of “global warming” is the now proven false claims it will cause catastrophic warming.

    He didn’t school anyone. Only revealed what an idiot he is.

    Trump was joking – I often have said pretty much the same thing – that once the predicted cooling starts (and it may be starting now) we will WISH for a little global warming.

  • I hear that a lot. Personal choice. I got no problem with those who’d rather take their chances without the shot.

  • I think they’re playing tiddlywinks while Trump plays chess. I know Hillary was, along with her election team.

  • Did he turn out to be a gay guy who liked hairy chests? My friend Jeff tells me in that the trend in the transvestite capital of the town is to have really hairy chests while walking around looking in most other respects like the woman they apparently believe they are.

    I don’t know that this is all the images in the box, probably not, but I can see why some prudes may not like the one that is farthest to the right… but I’m betting that there was some other reason they went after this guy. I wonder if we will ever find out what that reason is. This smells of an excuse to get rid of a guy they didn’t like.

    Amazon reviews indicate there are 100 cards in the box. One person said,

    ART BOX POSTCARDS” contain many Christian and nude themes.

    Could it be they were upset he directed them to a source of Christian themes but they knew that complaint wouldn’t fly, so they replaced “Christian” with “nude”?

  • Yeah I got a “childhood friend” who finally seems to be getting the message I don’t want him coming around or calling as long as meth and alcohol are his priorities in life. Took a while – he moved back in with his dad not too far from my place in La Jolla and he’s been a pain ever since.
