Ya wanna know why Trump is doing so well? Just look at the forum.

Trump this. Trump that. Trump. Trump. Trump.

Dear Dog in Heaven it's Hillary supporters giving him 85% of the air time.

Here's a clue, Dem wits:

Trump is a protest vote. He is the culmination of a pissed off electorate pushed to the point of saying, "A pox upon ALL their houses. Burn it down!"

Why do you think Jeb! was so summarily dismissed? Then Rubio.

They were the Establishment choices. And they got their asses kicked. They were the first ones to go.

If you could stop racing from one fabricated outrage to another you could have slowed down long enough to do some trends analysis.

His supporters aren't voting for him because Obama is only half white and Hillary is rumored to be a woman. They're voting for him because they hate the Democratic party and the Republican party for decades of betrayal and vilification.


Vilifying them and telling them they are a threat to the established order isn't going to bully them away from Trump, it's going to validate their reasons for voting for him in the first place.

But you're too fucking arrogant to stop for 5 minutes to realize this simple fact.

Which is what got you into this mess in the first place.

Choke on your own vomit, you mutts. Theirs too.

If you had a lick of sense you'd be trying to woo them back with, "But look, this government program is lean and efficient and proves we can help our fellow Americans" or "You're right. Maybe that did go too far and we should show greater respect for people as individuals."

But you won't.

You'll prop up Hillary. The biggest, crony, flakiest, cowardly, deal-cutting, manipulative, aloof, criminal since Tammany Hall -

- while you incessantly cry about Trump being a threat to all that.

Oh well.

Over the years I have accused you of many things. Being smart was never one of them.

It seems hypocritical that those mewling the most about body shaming are

the same rabble who defend Islam imposing burqas on women.

You know, the burqa, because a woman's evil body inspires men to rape them en masse in public so it is the woman's responsibility to hide her sinful flesh.

But it's not body shaming...or something.

ObamaCare shortfalls growing faster than Alicia Machado's butt

With a business acumen like this why wouldn't we trust them to manage healthcare through single payer?

According to the agency, the program experienced a shortfall of more than $2.5 billion in 2014, an amount so large that all of the risk corridor payments from 2015 would not cover it. Because all of the 2015 benefit year collections will be used for the 2014 shortfall, the agency anticipates that no funds will be available for the 2015 risk corridor program shortfall.

“In the event of a shortfall for the 2016 benefit year, HHS will explore other sources of funding for risk corridors payments, subject to the availability of appropriations,” the memo said. “HHS will record risk corridor payments due as an obligation of the United States government for which full payment is required.”

House Republicans sent a letter late last week to Secretary Sylvia Burwell of the Department of Health and Human Services saying they would scrutinize any attempt for a possible bailout of these insurers.

“To ensure the program does not become an uncapped bailout fund for insurance companies, Section 225 of Public Law No: 114-113 explicitly prohibits any appropriated funds from being used to make risk corridors payments,” the lawmakers wrote.

Of course, the solution - like all solutions for socialists - is to take money from those who are performing effectively and giving it to those who cannot.

The only fun part will be watching the LWNJs suddenly scrambling to rationalize why having the government pay to keep a private, for profit corporation profitable is a good thing.

How chicks should dress

If I understand the religious mind (of some):

* God created all things

* ergo God created women

* women are beautiful

Yet, somehow, this leads some to demand women cover themselves to keep men from being tempted.

But if a man falls into sin over a woman's appearance either it is the man's sin and his alone or...

...the man is blaming God, who created the woman in the first place and made her beautiful by His design.

That's quite the slap at God, it seems.

"'T'was the woman that thou gavest me."

We're all deplorable now

Lester, I think implicit bias is a problem for everyone. Not just police. I think unfortunately too many of us in our great country, um, jump to conclusions about each other. And therefore I think we need all of us to be asking ourselves hard questions about, you know, why am I feeling this way.

The statistics are irrefutable. Police shootings are overwhelmingly targeting


Unless and until the police are killing an equal number of women I think it's obvious the execution of men is a war against men.


After the Republic

After the Republic

Over the past half century, the Reagan years notwithstanding, our ruling class’s changing preferences and habits have transformed public and private life in America. As John Marini shows in his essay, “Donald Trump and the American Crisis,” this has resulted in citizens morphing into either this class’s “stakeholders” or its subjects. And, as Publius Decius Mus argues, “America and the West” now are so firmly “on a trajectory toward something very bad” that it is no longer reasonable to hope that “all human outcomes are still possible,” by which he means restoration of the public and private practices that made the American republic. In fact, the 2016 election is sealing the United States’s transition from that republic to some kind of empire.

Electing either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump cannot change that trajectory. Because each candidate represents constituencies hostile to republicanism, each in its own way, these individuals are not what this election is about. This election is about whether the Democratic Party, the ruling class’s enforcer, will impose its tastes more strongly and arbitrarily than ever, or whether constituencies opposed to that rule will get some ill-defined chance to strike back. Regardless of the election’s outcome, the republic established by America’s Founders is probably gone. But since the Democratic Party’s constituencies differ radically from their opponents’, and since the character of imperial governance depends inherently on the emperor, the election’s result will make a big difference in our lives.

Many Enemies, Few Friends

The overriding question of 2016 has been how eager the American people are to reject the bipartisan class that has ruled this country contrary to its majority’s convictions. Turned out, eager enough to throw out the baby with the dirty bathwater. The ruling class’s united front in response to the 2008 financial crisis had ignited the Tea Party’s call for adherence to the Constitution, and led to elections that gave control of both houses of Congress to the Republican Party. But as Republicans became full partners in the ruling class’s headlong rush in what most considered disastrous directions, Americans lost faith in the Constitution’s power to restrain the wrecking of their way of life.

From the primary season’s outset, the Democratic Party’s candidates promised even more radical “transformations.” When, rarely, they have been asked what gives them the right to do such things they have acted as if the only answer were Nancy Pelosi’s reply to whether the Constitution allows the government to force us into Obamacare: “Are you kidding? Are you kidding?”

It's a long read. I wish I could bring the entire piece over but it is worth reading.

U.S. owes black people reparations for a history of ‘racial terrorism,’ says U.N. panel

U.S. owes black people reparations for a history of ‘racial terrorism,’ says U.N. panel

The history of slavery in the United States justifies reparations for African Americans, argues a recent report by a U.N.-affiliated group based in Geneva.

This conclusion was part of a study by the United Nations' Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, a body that reports to the international organization's High Commissioner on Human Rights. The group of experts, which includes leading human rights lawyers from around the world, presented its findings to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday, pointing to the continuing link between present injustices and the dark chapters of American history.

"In particular, the legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the United States remains a serious challenge, as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent," the report stated. "Contemporary police killings and the trauma that they create are reminiscent of the past racial terror of lynching."

The panel drew its recommendations, which are nonbinding and unlikely to influence Washington, after a fact-finding mission in the United States in January. At the time, it hailed the strides taken to make the American criminal justice system more equitable but pointed to the corrosive legacy of the past.

This post-debate "MY GUY WON!" poll posting seems dumb

Regardless of who your candidate is polls suck as a general rule. Post-debate polls all the more so.

I hope everything the LWNJs say about Trump is true.

I hope, just the LWNJs say, Trump is going to be installed by Russian malfeasance.

I hope, just the LWNJs say, Trump is going to run roughshod over the Constitution.

I hope, just the LWNJs say, Trump is going to use the power of the presidency to destroy his personal enemies.

I hope, just the LWNJs say, Trump is going to persecute entire groups he hates.

I hope, just the LWNJs say, Trump is going to take their student loans, public education, food stamps, welfare, housing subsidies, healthcare and birth control and hold those benefits hostage to bend people to his demands.

Maybe then the fools will realize we were right about limiting government power being wary of dependency.

Oh, who am I kidding, you can't teach LWNJs anything.
