Grace Lee Whitney, who played Captain Kirk's assistant [Yeoman Janice Rand] on the original "Star Trek" series, has died. She was 85.

James D.

Speaking of offending religious minorities, the (taxpayer supported) Kennedy Center is putting on "The Book of Mormon" again this summer, which openly mocks and ridicules the Mormon church.

I suppose, based on the logic of the libs blaming the victims down in Texas, that they'd be OK if Mitt Romney spent a few of his millions to hire a crew, outfit them with AK-47s, and shoot up the Kennedy Center. Right?

rse

That Janice Rand footage I believe got resurrected in the Star Trek episode about Commander Pike.

The mentions of Keith Ellison reminded me he was a listed speaker last week http://www.goodjobsforall.org/speakers/ at the forum that rolled out that report I talked about in my most recent post. I had already linked to it and also noted Elizabeth Warren's involvement Saturday here.

Is there a bigger pile of crap a**hole than Donald Trump. What a slime ball. But once the financial disclosure requirements are triggered he'll back out. His ego would not be able to take the criticism and negatives the otherw would throw at him deservedlly.

Happy Cinco de Quattro, everyone!

Hmm, wait. Is that May 4th, or May 5th? These holidays are so confusing.

I take it Trump is on Fox again bloviating.

his is why I quit watching Fox and Friends. On Mondays they inflict Trump on me, and on Fridays it's Geraldo.

Poor way to start a day.

Here's a wonderful fact filled post from Free Beacon - http://freebeacon.com/issues/baltimore-received-1-8-billion-from-obamas-stimulus-law/

a bit -

"According to Recovery.gov, one of Baltimore’s central ZIP codes, 21201, received the most stimulus funding in the city, a total of $837,955,866. The amount included funding for 276 awards, and the website reports that the spending had created 290 jobs in the fourth quarter in 2013.

Of this amount, $467.1 million went to education; $206.1 million to the environment; $24 million to “family”; $16.1 million to infrastructure; $15.2 million to transportation; $11.9 million to housing; and $3.1 million to job training."

And this is on top of all the old, ongoing programs & on top of state taxpayer programs.

James D.

290 jobs created for a cost of $837 million? That works out to $2.8 million per job created.

Considering that the jobs (all benefits included0 probably actually were worth $100,000/year (or less, probably), one wonders whose pockets the other $2.7 million per job went into?

Oh, who am I kidding? We all know the answer to that question.

PD

Janet, good to know our money's being spent wisely and prudently, and with all the care that we would exercise were we spending it ourselves.

Only $2.9M per job, not bad.

PD

I rounded up. James D. more graciously rounded down.

$206.1 million to the environment;

As in "evaporated."

James D.

I would really, really, really like to see a major GOP figure lay out the facts about Baltimore, and Maryland:

Maryland has had a Democrat governor for 48 of the past 54 years.

The legislature is totally dominated by Democats (91-50 in the Assembly, 33-14 in the Senate). Democrats have controlled both houses of the legislature without exception for the past 23 years.

The last Republican Senator from Maryland left office in 1977.

Democtats have controlled the Maryland congressional delegation for 52 of the past 64 years (with an even split in 10 of the other 12 years). Republicans have not controlled a majority of the congressional delegation since 1955.

A Democrat has been Mayor of Baltimore for 65 of the last 69 years, and the last Republican left office in 1967.

Democrats have had absolute, one-party control over both the city, and the state government, for virtually all of the past half-century. Maybe they bear some responsibility for the disaster that is Baltimore?

Jane

Mine has (wait for it ) more liberals per capita

Jack is Back!

JamesD,

According to the map I linked Maryland also has more Democrats + Millionaires per capita than any other state, so there!

Janet

about Trump...I will always appreciate how he pushed the Obama crew concerning the long form birth certificate.

For years the MFM didn't differentiate between a birth certification & a birth certificate. They kept saying Obama had already released his birth certificate.
Oops...I guess NOT because after Trump hounded him, Obama released the certificate in April 2011.
Why did Obama have to play that game? Why wait so long? What was the point?
Obama acted like there was nothing he could do to get the certificate, which Trump proved was a lie.
How could that not bother the MFM at all? In fact they laughed it up with Obama at the 2011 WHCD on April 30, 2011.
Hahahahaha...all the stupid Americans that asked questions....hahahahaahhaha...

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/30/white-house-correspondents-dinner-2011_n_855926.html

Anyway, I will always appreciate Trump for that. He was braver than any of the lousy MFM "reporters".
The sycophantic MFM joined in ridiculing the one guy that actually pushed to get info from President Obama.

Also found in Ext's link:


Meanwhile, an Indiana school district is warning that apple slices “packaged in accordance with federal, school food service guidelines” may make children violently ill — or may even kill them.

Listeria?

I wonder how many of the packagers will claim they are doing a job Americans wouldn't do.

Good thing New York State has more lawyers per capita because Dean Skelos, the State Senate majority leader and his son is going to need a bunch of them. Both arrested on corruption charges.

Can you guess the party?

Correction: Skelos is a Republican. And I shoiuld have known that. My bad.

Rick Ballard

This is an interesting piece identifying the problems on the Baltimore Plantation as being endemic across almost all Fascist Plantations. The author also notes the success of Fascist ethnic cleansing in San Francisco,Portland and Seattle.

The piece notes the rate of successful Flight From Blue Hell of those intelligent enough to remove their children from danger but it doesn't address the flight of the intelligent as the primary causative factor in very poor outcomes for those dumb enough to remain in the cesspools.

Understandable, the average thingy does require some arithmetic.

Local news is about to discuss the Baltimore Thug Six. The teaser to keep my attention was "up next we talk about the six cops, most of whom were charged with 2nd murder..."

That I know of only one of Obama's imaginary sons was charged with murder.

And in really important news,

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are no longer a power couple in American sports.

Golf's biggest star and the Olympic ski champion said Sunday they were breaking up after more than two years. But in ending their relationship, both were in complete harmony in their separate announcements on social media, citing busy lives and times they will always "cherish."

rse, another Charlotte was George IV's daughter,who died in childbirth. She was the legitimate heir and the turmoil that followed led to Victoria's eventual succession. Imagine Europe without the heirs of Victoria! All those cousins. Imagine Christmas dinner with George V, Kaiser Wilhelm and the Tsar and Tsarina. They would put the "fun" in family dysfunction. Ha!

Star Wars Cover: J.J. Abrams Reveals His Idea to Kill Jar Jar Binks

For some Star Wars fans, there's no May the Fourth news finer than this: director J. J. Abrams revealed that he's thought about killing off the very controversial Jar Jar Binks. Sitting in an edit bay at his Bad Robot production office and pointing to a frame of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Abrams told Vanity Fair contributing editor Bruce Handy, "I have a thought about putting Jar Jar Binks's bones in the desert there. I'm serious! Only three people will notice, but they'll love it."

I liked the video, but I don't think Camerota made a "complete fool" of herself. She took the MSM position, but she let Geller talk. No "on the other hand" CAIR guests, no shouting. Geller had the time to explain, and was able to demonstrate the virtue of her position vs. that of the elites.

Excellent job by Pam Geller.

...Clement and Katyal argue that "natural born Citizen" means all those who were: "U.S. citizen at birth with no need to go through a naturalization proceeding at some later time."

This legally-indefensible argument deserves refutation given that it comes ex cathedra from the prestigious Harvard Law Review. Grotesquely, six of the nine sitting Supreme Court Justices graduated from Harvard Law School: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Antonin Scalia, Anthony M. Kennedy, Stephen G. Breyer, John G. Roberts, Jr., Chief Justice, and Elena Kagan.

Hence, the distinctive intellectual bias of graduates of that law school has a disproportionate impact on the direction of law in the United States...

...In sum, in my Response, I refute the arguments of Messrs. Clement and Katyal, and conclude as follows:

Thus, I must maintain that the manipulation of the framingera sources and law by Messrs. Clement and Katyal to conclude that Senator Ted Cruz is eligible to be President cannot stand. They conclude: “Thus, an individual born to a U.S. citizen parent -- whether in California or Canada or the Canal Zone -- is a U.S. citizen from birth and is fully eligible to serve as President if the people so choose.” The British statutes, Blackstone, de Vattel, The Naturalization Act of 1790 and the holding in Minor v. Happersett are all consistent: “natural born Citizen” is a privilege bestowed upon a special class of U.S. Citizen, to wit, a child born of two U.S. Citizen parents.

Thus, insomuch as Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal were born in the United States to parents none of whom were United States citizens at the time of these gentlemen's respective births and Ted Cruz was born in Canada to parents only one of whom (his mother) was a United States citizen, none of these fine gentleman are eligible to be President of the United States.

TK,

Jihad in Garland isn't going to be an episode of the Obamasons. It may become an episode in Responsible Free Speech, focusing on the necessity of muzzling unpleasant truth but it lacks the requisite 'thug winning his Darwin' element which characterizes the Obamason Show.

The Mahometan "hold my hookah, I wanna try somethin'" element coupled with ISIS lighting up the idiots via twitter means this one is going to go in the memory hole fairly quickly.
