Well, they will. Because California does want to ban some types of ammunition.

The FBI has confiscated the emails of the State Dept aide who setup Secretary Clinton's private server.

Ah, the Senate Committee subpoenaed that server. And the guy took the 5th (not the 5th that bad Santa drank), so the are looking into giving him immunity and compelling him to testify.

But - this time it's different.

I hadn't seen the Robert Louis Stevenson quote before.

Ignatz,

I often wonder about how obscure things suddenly show up everywhere. It's not just the internet, either.

Back in the 80's no one had ever heard of Gilbert and Sullivan. Suddenly, their music was in movies (Chariots of Fire), on TV (some British series I can't remember the name of) and Linda Ronstadt made an album.

I never forgot that, because it seemed so odd to me.

As improbable as I thought it a few months ago, the MFM may hair-on-fire Trump right into the WH.

Rick Ballard

JiB,

No, I don't have a date picked. The 'graceful failure' has begun but there is no widespread acknowledgement of the certainty of governmental defaults in Venezuela, Brazil and Mexico as well all the shadow banking defaults which have already begun in China.

There is still, after seven years of ZIRP, a refusal to recognize the current situation as being unsustainable.

narciso,

I figure that Tweet is worth about 5 points in the polls.

If nothing else, Trump's campaign is supreme entertainment!

Social mania, like bubbles, pop.  Or is it 'manias'?

Well, hey! Barney.

I like the middle quote by Aldous Huxley and had never heard it before. Failing history, we endure another extraordinarily alarmist popular delusion and madness of the catastrophic crowd.

Shhh, gossip.

Ding dong the merry bells knell, but don't tell, in the dell.

Don't wanna win that way.

Sadly, now that Obama has manifested his madness in the climate change/Islamic terrorism schism, the more terrorism, the more mad he will seem.

Cecil Turner

Get these babies while they're still available:

Oh, yeah, and sick, sick, sick money.

One thing people miss about Trump is that he is not a stand-up comic, and endeavors to not be too clownish to be taken seriously, but humour is a huge part of his campaign. He invokes grins and merriment, and it is because he is willing to show us what fools our political elite has become, thanks largely to an enslaved press.

Hmmm.  Both fit.

Time out. 'evokes'. I know the difference.

clarice,

Another thing (which henry's post reminded me of) is how the Obamas deliberately act classless.

Examples:

Michelle's rap video
Michelle's clothing
Obama's vulgar trash talk
Obama doing the middle finger thing
Not paying attention to protocol
Opulent travel and spending
Inviting low-class music and Hollywood people to White House

We could do worse.

You watch, those two will fight through the primaries, then join.

Clarice, you could write about the similarity of the campus movements to the phenomena of the Ugly American. Both leave home and demand the place they go to conform to their dictates. Both are definitely not fans of the adage 'When in Rome.'

I've been tossing a posting about this around since my last solo car drive to Biloxi. Lot of time to highlight and cure the ills of the world when you are talking to yourself for six hours. :)

Clarice, Cecil had a good comparison between Obama;s "must act now" when he was sure a bitter clinger was the shooter and "beware of backlash" when it turned out to be Islamic.

Seems like there have been several appearances of the man behind the curtain no one is supposed to notice and emperor sans apparel this week.

Some of the construction people he used were tiedto the mob. Of course, everyone else used them too, because they controlled the industry.

My favorite comment:

"To the Opinion Writer: Is this part of that plan by the old elite republicans to destroy Trump? Dream this up in a cigar smoke filled room while sipping brandy at the Harvard Club, did you? I can hear them; "That's it Eureka! We can link him to the mob." That should do it even though everything else has failed so far.


Mr. Opinion Man: this is so pathetic. You want someone like "John Boy" Rubio. Great! His father was a bartender. And he's been on a some Senate committee and learned a whole bunch in 2 or 3 years. Yep. That should trump Donald's a long successful business career of actually building something, or rather many things. Always getting the job done. Managing billions of dollars and thousands of employees and really building America.


Shameful to try to tar him with the Mafia brush. Like all the other attempts this should fail because we (the people) see right through it."

of course there was Steyn's Van Helsing impression,

There's an interesting story in today's NYT about how outside of Beijing they've built a city called "Jackson Hole" where they've reproduced large wooden houses that look like those in Wyoming which quotes Chinese residents saying they want to live like Americans in big houses with yards (and presumably in suburbs). This comes as we learn of a $50 million slush funds to communities around the country to establish dense housing and reduce private transportation.

Ironic enough for you guys?

Miss Marple 2

Pretty weird, Clarice.

A few months ago I read an article where the Chinese rural villages were dying - only populated by old people.

One had been revitalized by becoming a computer hub for shipping for on-line purchases.

Very surreal.

narciso

I missed that story, but seeing as they have modeled their experience on elements of our own history, the robber baron, both in Russia and China, was the only model of capitalism they knew,

Seems to me the idea of urban clusters is an old fashioned idea based on life before the IT, not unusual for the left.

narciso

well it was the vision in Netropolis, the George Pal adaptation of Wells's far future tale, up until the original star wars,

Room with a View.

I called 'em cliffdwellers twenty-five years ago, c; but not to overwhelming approval.

narciso

Wells was awfully optimistic in some parts of his prophecy 'the Shape of Things to Come'


The abolition of Islam is carried out by the Air Police, who "descend upon Mecca and close down the main holy places", apparently without major incident. Eventually, Islam disappears, its demise accelerated by the decay of Arabic and its replacement by "an expanded English". Some twenty mosques survive, deemed to be worthy of preservation on architectural grounds. The Lebanese-American scholar George Nasser remarked on this aspect of Wells' book: "In the 1979 imagined by HG Wells, a self-appointed ruling elite composed mainly of Westerners, with one Chinese and one Black African and not a single Arab member, would establish itself in the Arab and Muslim city of Basra and calmly take the decision to completely extinguish and extirpate the Muslim religion... In the 1979 of real history, Khomeini's Islamic Republic of Iran came into being".[2][page needed]

daddy

Clarice,

I thought the points Mark Levin made at the beginning of Hour 2 of his Radio program today were excellent. He started by mentioning the story today about the un-Constitutionality of Obama's decision to have his staff whip up some new Gun-Control program so he could sign it and implement and damn the Constitution, yet there will be no mention by the MSM whatever of this being un-Constitutional. [(AP) Obama's Advisors are finalizing a proposal that would expand background checks on gun sales without Congressional Approval]

Levin contrasted the acquiescence to Obama's Un-Constitutionality with the continual 24/7 onslaught by the same MSM (and most of the Republicans) in damning Trump for his un-Constitutional comments re: Islamic Immigration.

My guess is you probably don't listen often to Levin, but if you are searching for ideas, simply click here on his program today, and when the show pops up in a small side window, expand that window and click on over to about the 37 minute, 30 second mark, and give his hour 2 opening rant about a 10 minute listen. 12/11/15 - Mark Levin Audio Rewind

I find Levin insightful and depressingly accurate, and I'm thinking more and more Americans find him that way every day as well.

clarice

Thanks, narciso..Some good ideas there.
Is it my imagination? I think most long standing urban centers arose organically--that is the routes for traffic and centers for work and living were developed over time by people using rational convenience as their guide. No one sat down with pen and paper and decided the layout of London or Paris.

Jojo

to Oh, yeah, and sick, sick, sick money ... your post about his humor, that was a really good observation.

clarice

I expect, the gun control program will not survive the first court challenge, daddy. In the meantime, he just signed into law (see my post above) three new provisions that expand gun use--i.e., forbidding EPA to ban lead bullets.
