Failed liberal prediction #31,599: The demise of Rush Limbaugh

Once again liberals conflate fantasy projection with reality. I guess it's time for the annual predictions for the demise of Rush Limbaugh. Of course, these are the same people who think Air America Commie Radio was a success.
The End of Rush Limbaugh? His Radio Syndicator is on the Brink of Bankruptcy
With Trump still driving the public angst, the carnage is far from over. The talk radio empire of Rush Limbaugh is now said to teetering on collapse.

The global warming hoax in pictures

The global warming hoax is nothing more than commies pushing their political ideology. Doomers suck.

Just when you think doomers can't get any more stupid...
I've Had Lingering Cough & Cold Symptoms All Winter And Now ....

into Spring. Seems like I almost shake it and then it rears its ugly head again and the eye tearing, congestion, nasal drip and coughing begin again. Just can't eliminate it all together.

I'm posting this here because I want to find out if others are experiencing the same thing?

I'm wondering if this is something as a result of climate change?

I never had the same type of cold and symptoms before.

It takes this level of stupid to believe the global warming hoax.

Obama was like a monkey banging with a stick.

Trump is such a refreshing change. Ooops I got it wrong, MSNBC was talking about Trump. My bad. No way Obama could be characterized as "simiam" by the liberal press.
Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews said President Donald Trump’s “boasts and bragging” was “simian,” adding it was like a “monkey banging with a stick.”

Matthews said, “The ego here is — well it’s something. By the way, his teeth come out like it’s simian almost. It’s simian, like a monkey banging with a stick, You know, ‘I’m the biggest. I’m the biggest.’ Pounding his chest. It does have a simian quality to it, I mean primordial, I should say.”

What difference will a $15 minimum wage make?

I see Democrats introduced a bill to increase the Federal minimum wage to $15 per hour.

Why does anyone think this will make a difference in the long run? Are people making minimum wage today ($8.25/hour) any better off than those making minimum wage in 1938 ($0.33/hour). In the short term there will be disruption and people losing jobs. In the long term, it makes no difference.

People at the bottom rung of the wage ladder will continue to have the same relative buying power. You could set the minimum wage to $1000/hour and people's lifestyles will not change. People making double minimum wage will make $2000/hour. Inflation will adjust prices on everything and pizzas will cost $1200 and a car wash will cost $1000. An apartment that might cost $700/month now will cost $100,000 per month.

Libs keep trying to create equal outcomes. It is a stupid and futile effort. But I guess it makes some short term political points for the permanent political class so they can further increase their own power and wealth. Bernie needs another house. Maybe he can buy Al Gore's ol 20,000 SF house, or Nancy Pelosi's vineyard.

The March for Junk Science and Socialism
The March for Science is tomorrow and no one in their right mind would say they are against it because of its name. First of all, you are standing against the right of people to march for whatever cause they wish. Second, you would be portrayed as someone who is against science.

Just who does not believe in science? It’s a straw man the marchers are marching against.

This shows no apparent linkage between CO2 and temperature in a time scale that goes back millions of years. So as someone who is acquainted with the scientific method, I am instantly skeptical of the idea that after all this time, there is now a linkage. That does not mean there can’t be, and I am open to that argument and understand it. But as I asked in my last blog, how much linkage is there?

What I am trying to figure out is why there is a march when many of the people in that march have no tolerance for the questioning of their position. While I think it’s noble to be inclusive and diverse, are any “skeptics” included as speakers? Is there diversity of thought? Of course not. Because in spite of what you see in the graphs above and below, they ignore the obvious. The planet has always had temperature swings — larger than this and independent of CO2 — that should make any person searching for the truth skeptical as to how much CO2 contributes.

Questioning of dogma need not apply. That sounds more like religion than science.

I have to question motivation. For instance, if man-made global warming is such a done deal, why are we researching it anymore? Actual settled science (freezing and boiling points of water, gravity, the sun is darn hot) is not being researched. So apparently AGW is not settled science. And for a good reason — if it is true this is all man-made, it’s the first time, established by science, in recorded history. Another reason for being skeptical.

Maybe the march would have been more aptly named "The March of Useful Idiots"?

A Conflict of Visions

Black Lives DON'T Matter

An innocent black man out for a stroll is murdered. Not peep from BLM or the left. I wonder why? Not. Liberals only care about black lives when it helps their political agenda. The Democratic Party really hasn't changed from the 1800s.

Foreigners Now Account for 61% of Federal Arrests

Here is your diversity for you.
The Pew Research Center released an analysis of Justice Department numbers Monday showing a massive increase in the prominence of immigration-related offenses in federal law enforcement.
Pew cited a report released last month by the Bureau of Justice Statistics to show that immigration offenses accounted for fully half of federal arrests in 2014, up from only 28% a decade earlier. Consequently, the Department of Homeland Security, which includes Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), now makes more arrests than the FBI, DEA, BATFE, U.S. Marshal’s Service, and all other branches of the Justice Department combined.

According to Pew: The geographic distribution of federal arrests also shows the growing emphasis on immigration offenses. In 2014, 61% of all federal arrests – or more than 100,000 – occurred in just five federal judicial districts along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Driven by this massive increase in immigration arrests, a staggering 61% of federal arrests are now of non-U.S. citizens. These arrests, mostly for immigration offenses, but including thousands for other crimes, do not include the hundreds of thousands of non-criminal apprehensions of illegal aliens each year.

So how many Supreme Court Justices will President Trump nominate over 8 year period?
