Progs will take a bad circumstance and make it worse. We'll go from guilty male creeps getting away with it to different female creeps being believed when they falsely accuse the innocent.

The War on (crazy prog) Women is over. The War by (crazy prog) Women has just begun.
Long live the war.

Franken will not resign. He will point fingers and say others are worse. (The Conyers gambut, but Franken isn't 86 and feeble). This oughta be good.

Besides, as Insty points out, if Franken resigns, both MN Senate seats will be up for grabs in 2018. Trump came close there.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Ignatz,

Just as the prog creeps went too far in their treatment of women, thinking they were immune, so too will this bunch of suddenly awakened dem women who suddenly see how they have been treated.

I have already seen inklings of this. Pretty soon it will reach a fever pitch and then an accuser will be found to have lodged false accusations in revenge for a poor review at work or not getting a part she was obviously not suited for, and the entire controversy will collapse.

At some point someone needs to make the case for simple civility and respect. Places of employment are not personal harems or hunting fields for a gravy train husband. Go to a bar on your own dime for that sort of thing.

Progs will take a bad circumstance and make it worse.

That's what they do. And every time things get worse, their only answer is to give them more money and more power to fix the problem they created.

That's crazy talk! There's no money or power to be gained by behaving with simple civility and respect.

Workplace romances are no brainers. When you're in a confined area for the majority of the day you will naturally gravitate to people you like. That's why companies have policies that frown on it or at least keep a lid on it.

"At some point someone needs to make the case for simple civility and respect"

And I wonder why those things might be taught?

At the dinner table with a fully formed nuclear family? In church? In Sunday School? In Public Schools taught by union teachers? In colleges taught by TA's who don't speak English and if they do, it is communism they teach? By watching role models on TV and Movies? By watching role models among our political leaders?

Two nights ago, when I was walking Teddy, it felt like, after a very warm autumn, that winter was settling in. Even though the skies have stayed clear for the super moon, the snow hammer seems poised to drop.

Hoping for civility and respect from the "we're fierce, we're feminists and we're in your face" crowd will probably lead to disappointment.

I'm so excited to see the libtards embracing a new morality. Just over a year ago, a serial rapist was given a standing ovation at their national convention when he gave an introduction for his serial rape-enabler wife - their nominee!! What a difference a year makes!! It's almost like they're pretending to be sincere about it...

From the wonderful HJTA.org (CA residents should sign up for their twice weekly free email newsletter!). A link to SacBee article.
"Report blasts CalPERS’ environmental and social ‘activism’"

Instead of investing taxpayer money to fund govt employee retirement, they use it to bully corporations on political issues and to boost certain favored companies which may or may not be profitable.

My sister-in-law secretly dated then married the plant manager of her company. They kept their relationship a secret for 2 years until the plant was bought out by a Canadian company and they were both fired (along with a large percentage of the workforce.) I could not believe that they were not discovered but they were very, very careful as they both had high paying jobs and could not risk it.

Deb:

Looks like the band of snow is hitting at least the West part of the ATL area. The local weather service hasn’t really put this out there yet. The advisories and warnings are kind of wimpy and hesitant and emphasize uncertainty. Glad I don’t live out towards Douglasville.

Jane

It's not like all those dem woman were unaware what was/is going on in DC. Seems to me they are to blame as well. They bitch about wanting to be "equal" but act like snowflakes unable to comprehend the world around them. Oh and I'm sure that also applies to some republican women too. I'm so sick of how men are treated these days. Conyers and Frankenstein got away with it, because the women allowed them to.

Kevlar Kid

Pa is jumpin for joy that he and his bride just sold their 15 acre place with the huge driveway and quarter mile access road-- given all that snow headed toward southern Virginny.

His bride's hovering and stupid daughter, on the other hand, just paid too much for a place in their locale so she could hawk her Mama's estate. Lot's of plowin' in store for her. Not the good kind neither. She's as fugly as a mud fence, inside and out.

Did I really say that out loud. So far from grace. (Too bad.)

A quick note before I am out also;
Was at a stop light yesterday and in front of me was a midsize Jeep SUV with a "resist" bumpersticker and a "nasty girl" pink pussy hat one, which in this part of California is about as common as a "cold dead fingers" one in SanFran.
So I'm sitting there wondering what a chick would look like with those on her car and sure enough as she pulled away I could see in her mirror [we were in the left turn lane] she was not only lily white and middle aged and square jawed and wearing those ubiquitous horned-rimmed-hag eye glass accessories, but she had those thin terse lips poised in their perpetual scowl that every one of these broads [and yes I mean to demean* her] seems to possess.

*Would that I or someone could actually de-mean these mean broads.

Speaking of JFK, last night we watched "Hidden Figures", a movie highly recommended to us by our 12 yo grandson, where vintage clips of JFK speaking of the space race with USSR appear. It's a wonderful film, but agonizing in its depiction of racism at the time.

A description: "As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as "human computers", we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes."

Old Lurker

So true, Jane. Ditto all those actresses who expected to parlay a little part into a bigger part.

This new-found Dem morality, of course, is setting the Democratic Party up to be "the new Women's Party". Bernie will be put out to pasture with another house for his fat fugly wife and the Women's Party will prepare to battle President Trump's incumbency.

But there is a nasty swarm of flies in their ointment as I see it.

What will the new "Women's Party" do if 2020 turns out to be like walking into a tree shredder because

1) Trump lances the boil that is the Deep State and all the cash intended for their brown paper bags dries up prior to the election; and,

2) the American economy (stupid!) is humming along on its best run since the late Reagan years making the Women's Party platform *ir-fucking-relevant.

Oh, and 3) the Party of Stupid Elites (GOPe for the slow) disintegrates in the face of a Trump onslaught 2.0 which brings more true-to-life WOMEN (ass-kicking-conservative elected officials) to the national political scene who will make Kabama Harris and "y'all" look like Maxine Waters 2.0.

What will the Women's Party do then? Simmer and stamp about "Just Wait til Our Turn in 2024"?

By the way, is this new Women's Party ready to cut a deal with Fauxcahontas Warren who seems to be suffering from a bad case of "It's MY TURN-itis" just like her predecessor, Hildo the Rodhammer.

Senator Warren is a giant greasy fly in the ointment.

If WARREN ends up being the best the Women's Party can do in 2020, I'm here to say that Trump 2.0 will flatten her like a melon under tank treads.

OL on the last thread:
most of it is not "tax money" so much as "directed settlement" protection money exacted by government thugs with baseball bats in return for backing off "that nice business you got there...".

As I'm sure OL knows, it's effectively tax money--it's coerced from corporations, and more important, even if it were legit it could otherwise go to general revenues and deficit reduction.

It will be great to see these organizations fold for lack of funds, or have to go begging to their supporters.

Rapey Frankenstien and Iconyerz and Progressives

We stand with our fellow progressive duda and agree with him that any Congressman or Senator who committed assault while in their current office after being elected, and not known by voters, should step down if the evidence proves the case against them. Like actual photo evidence and not forged signature evidence or vague memories from decades ago of legal consensual, unforced activities. Fight on, duda, our brother!!!

Ext:

Conyers came out because an NDA was leaked to Buzzfeed. So there, at least one woman did complain.

Franken -- All of his goes into the category of why bother taking any risk to complain? The first one to claim was literally in a position of "neither you or your friends can hurt me, and I have a picture".

Sounds like the quality of yer dreams has improved.

I interrupted 3 friends of the family in my dream from making a one-time oxy purchase in order to make some big munny. It was a sleep stopper. Woke up at 3am and stayed awake.

Too much newsreading on the subject lately. "back channel purge" as ManTran so aptly put it the other day in his comment about how he viewed his dreaming function of the past.

I'm holding out for one of my favorite type dreams where planets appear close on the horizon line like the super moon does from time to time...only it's Neptune or Jupiter deciding to change their routes and I am shouting to people to look up and "see what's happening."

I get those about every 6 weeks. I'm due, baby!

Lol, Jim and Kev

Old Lurker

Indeed, Jimmy. I have long advocated that ALL monetary damages derived from the use of Government force should go to, and only to, the General Fund of said government. Never to an outside group, and never to the agency that won it. If individuals want to be paid, they should pursue their own suits alone or as class actions, and if they want to "drift" behind the government case, fine, let them wait until the government winds or loses.

Protestants almost came to blows when the Progs changed the Prayer Book a couple of decades ago. A slippery slope was foreseen.

For the longest time, our summer chapel refused to use the new book. Alas they caved.

Fast forward to today, and the new "thing" in several Episcopal Churches I attend is for the Program, formerly a one pager announcing which service applied that day and where in the Prayer Book it starts, now has become a typed out 6-8 page booklet for each Sunday which is used in place of the Prayer Book and Readings.

Now why would they do that? Hmmm?

JimNorCal

btw, this is an excellent post by our genial host, Tom Maguire.

"Wow. No righty making that argument could have convinced her of the obvious"
Great, great description of what we're calling Trump Magic though of course it's a more generalized societal shift and heightening of contradictions.

Kevlar Kid

Mrs. Kid hails from the "jewel in the belly of Long Island", aka Great Neck (moved there at 3 years of age after being born in Brooklyn).

She's a dyed in the wool city chica.

Lately, the East Bay Regional Park system has been leasing lands near the roads to cattle ranchers.

That puts their herds up close and personal to the bike riders who train up in those hills each morning.

Mrs Kid's quote of the decade comes from her recent education on the bovine persuasion--- "Fuckin A bitch! Cows can really shit!"

Can't wait til the ranchers rotate some bulls into closer view of that all-female ridin' crew.

So impressionable so late in life. ;)

If Franken steps down it would mainly be to influence the Alabama senate vote on Tuesday. It would take a few days for the news to be disseminated and absorbed, so if it doesn't happen today or tomorrow, it won't happen.

Narciso---> thanks for asking about my business partner.

He came out to Califas for Thanksgiving to visit his longtime gal pal. That was a good sign. The ALZ is slowing down some given what it was doing to him at the beginning of 2016.

He's gone under the care of my doctor who helped me climb out of the Type II diabetic syndrome. Same diet (no sugar, no carb, with supplementation) as me. He's responding well.

But he still signed everything over to me. My turn to run with the ball. Having fun with it. First order of business: increase the number of shares and raise some capital in order to move forward. He signed it over during his Thanksgiving visit.

Very tearful thing for him. We're just glad the progression is slowing down. Not taking any chances though.

A touching comment I saw at another blog, hope I'm not infringing on privacy in posting it here.

"One of my dearest memories is when we took my wife’s Dad back to Pearl Harbor, a place he had not been since a couple days after the attack. He was on duty as the radioman in the USS Maryland radio room when the attack occurred, and stayed at his post for hours relaying messages until they were ordered to abandon ship. At that point, he related, the water in the radio room was over his knees.

When the family took him to Pearl Harbor he broke down in front of the plaque at the visitor’s center that has the Oklahoma and the Maryland on it. They had been moored together and the Oklahoma took nearly all the damage…and loss of life. As he looked at the plaque he started crying, and when one of the grandkids asked: “What’s wrong, Grandpa”, he replied: “The Oklahoma saved us…I’m alive because the Oklahoma, and all those men, died”."
