Shocking that under the JEF the census is asking a ton of garbage questions which the founding fathers would have rejected out of hand because they're no business of the federal government. Obviously neither party has any respect for the Constitution.

The preezy shall...
In addition, watch how quickly sampling replaces an actual enumeration.


Explain this: Every day this week is a palindrome: 4-13-14;4-14-14;4-15-14;4-16-14;4-17-14;4-18-14;4-19-14.

Factor in the blood red moon and we are deep in the Book of Revelation.


Sounds like if we used this new Census counting method to examine Global Warming we'd get a Pool Stick, not a Hockey Stick.


the glorious victory at the Malabar front, must be observed. even if it was a defeat.

You forgot that you need an ID to cross the border unless yoo are an illegal from Central America.

Captain Hate

In addition, watch how quickly sampling replaces an actual enumeration.

Ugh, I can see Cantor jumping on that bandwagon and towing another one of his amnesty bus tours behind it, since that's the type of scam that cranks the illegal undocumented count to eleventy.


On a previous thread JiB posted a link to this story:
Lawrence O'Donnel and brother, traveling abroad, injured in taxi accident

Commenter on the story posts this:

Hope the taxi is okay...

Happy, happy, joy, joy Ignatz

I emailed Sarah Kliff asking her to correct her dreck.
We'll see.


Sarah 'Gosnell is a local story' Kliff, shirley you gest.


I would think that if Lawrence O'Donnell was traveling in a Socialist country he would have stayed in that Socialist country for medical treatment, because O'Donnell as we all know is an admitted Socialist, and constantly sings the praises of Socialist Utopianism and why this country needs to become Socialist. Occam's razor therefore tells me that he was traveling in a non-Socialist country.*

*Except that O'Donnell, like all Socialists is a massive hypocrite, so Occam's Electric Shaver tells me that O'Donnell did indeed have an accident in a Socialist Country, but bailed out like crazy back to the US for immediate attention by what remains of the Health care system in this country that he is working so desperately to destroy.

I hope it was Cuba.

Just when you thought Uncle Joe was within redemption:

The bombing was worth it

Of course it was in order for you to make another fool of yourself. What a doofus.


there is apparently penalty for failure in some parts;

Joe Biden; our first Special Olympian Vice President.

Carol Herman

Just another survey people won't take seriously.

Can't hide the fact that lots of Americans are now angry. And, the democrats are feeling that anger.

To offset the "loss of faith" I expect voter fraud will become astronomical. While the "good news" is that the legacy media can't do the math.

For real news you'll still have to go to Drudge. (And, social media outlets.)


Gretta just did a segment where apparently the BLM guys dug a quick grave on the Bundy Cattle Grazing territory and there is at least 1 dead Bundy cattle buried there, and possible up to 40. The average cattle according to the FOX reporter on location goes for about $2,200 if I heard correctly and last night I heard that 110 head of his cattle are missing.

I didn't hear the entire segment so I may be a bit off, but I'm glad Gretta is covering this since no other network is.

"I imagine they will still be assessing the data on Election Day."

Alternatively, enumerated data could be acquired from NAIC based upon reports which, by statute, insurers must file. The data would not have the aura imparted by the use of sophisticated computer modeling but it might be of some use due to its reflection of reality.



Speaking of the data used on Election Day...


Don't they use the same data for jury duty and for the elections?


Dogs are very discerning judges of character, people are less so, on balance.


How much actual journalism was a part of this;

Of course the feckless EU, actually they are full of feck, are the last to understand this,

On the excellent discussion on our out of control Federal Agencies 2 threads back, and particularly EPA "off-limits" mandates, it's worth remembering that the EPA just pre-emptively issued a ruling against Alaska's Pebble Mine project before the Pebble Project had ever even submitted a proposal for study. The EPA simply ginned up their own ideas of what they thought a Pebble proposal might look like and on that basis decided to nix the project.

American Thinker: EPA Studies and Preordained Conclusions

The (EPA) agency stated that they would be proceeding to take action under the Clean Water Act to pre-emptively halt action on the Pebble Mine project before permitting begins on the proposed copper, gold, and molybdenum extraction project. Essentially, they studied three mine scenarios, none of which would be able to be permitted under either the state of federal systems and found them unacceptable. No surprise, that.

So what do we have? We have government employees who claim to be scientists working closely with environmental activists (also largely funded via EPA grants) to create a document with predetermined conclusions which they then call “science.”


Annnnd... I just had another frigging call from some putz in NY insisting that I was 70 years old and didn't I want to take advantage of all the good stuff the government can do for me.

Maybe I should file a tax return for this Matrix me and see what goodies I can collect. If they can send 2,000 tax refunds to one address for years, I might be able to get away with it.

All I have to say is damn, I look good for a 70 year old!!

Posting here so that it might get read.

My Mongolian Princess has a grandson who might be working with the Goldens in a few more years. Haven't seen the family in awhile. The #2 daughter is now in the L.A. basin finishing college. I expect she might snag a prosperous round-eye before she's done. She has the brains and looks to pull it off, if she chooses.

Gorgeous pix, BTW.


RORY REID: We believe in a country in which we are subject to laws and you can’t just ignore the laws we don’t like. I think clearly if state and local prosecutors look at this more closely, they’re going to find that he broke the law and he should be prosecuted….
Senator Harry Reid - "Well, it's not over. We can't have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it's not over," Reid said.

Boy the Reid family are real sticklers for obeying the law...except our immigration laws. And the EPA or IRS releasing private citizen info to leftist advocacy groups...that doesn't seem to bother them.
And the Dems don't seem to care if their Dem. state Attorney Generals "ignore the law". That is all great. The DOJ can "ignore the law" too.


Reid wants to choose which members of "an American people" can violate the law without repercussion.

Truly, this invites insurrection.


Well we saw then Asst. Att Gen, Eric Holder, one week, 14 years ago, decided immigration law was preeminent, but just in one instance,


Jay Carney explains why the Boston Bombing Memorial Service at the White House today was off limits to the Press:

Reporter: Clearly a newsworthy anniversary, and do you think it was appropriate to have independent media coverage of the President marking that Anniversary?

Carney: We certainly think that the moment was important, but it is mostly important in Boston.

OK, I'll bite. Then why the hell does NBC have to go so far as to lie to maimed Boston Bombing victims to get them to appear on "Meet The Press"? Because they only car about it in Boston?

Then why did you guys give a damn about going to Gabby Gifford's Memorial services in Arizona?

Jane on Ipad

Between that Daddy, and Biden declaring the bombing was "worth it", it's been quite a day for this administration.

Frau Turnvater Jahn

daddy, the memorial in AZ should be for the six who died and not for Gabby who is (partially) still here with us.
Not that the press would ever write it that way.

Frau Turnvater Jahn

Janet sez "Boy the Reid family are real sticklers for obeying the law...except our immigration laws."

AND election laws.


And Cronyism laws.
And bribery laws.
And pedophile laws.


Frau Turnvater Jahn

Stephanie, the yutes are afraid to talk.


Someone told me Harry Reid was a pedophile. He hasn't denied it so it much be true.


Yep, Sue.

Sure is quiet in here tonight. Must be a POI night.

Happy, happy, joy, joy Ignatz

POI, yes, but no Justified.


Yes, they have the Fargo knockoff;

Well at least they are not American rightwingers.


Captain Hate

Well at least they are not American rightwingers.

After the bigmouths in the administration have blabbed about double agents, is it any surprise that they've all been purged or don't feel like the risk is worth it?


Alright they really let things get out of control, on tonight's PoI, the equivalent of letting the helicarriers fly to 3000 feet,

Captain Hate

Well they'd been moving in that direction for the last few episodes. I thought it was a reasonably coherent explication of the moral dilemmas of the machine unchained dealing with the implications of another machine that is obviously dangerous to it. I have no idea what the purpose of Root is these days because I'd have thought she'd have been the implementer if the machine wanted somebody snuffed.


My Lord. Lewis B. Carroll, George Orwell, and Saul Alinsky all slip down the same rabbit hole and end up in the White House, 'splaining stuff.'

They've won. The issue of how many people have signed up, their ages, and whether they were previously uninshured has now been so successfully obfuscated that the electorate will conclude that it's impossible to determine whether this thing is a success or a failure.

American healthcare for generations to come will be some variant of Obamacare. Access to care, and its quality, will slowly but steadily degrade, even as do real wages and the standard of living. The connection of these phenomena to the Democratic agenda will be tenuous enough that there will be no widespread rage and rebellion.

The nation will get precisely what it deserves to get.


I don't think this list is comprehensive either.
