First

Jack is Back!

I hope the architect they choose has experience in using Kevlar in their window walls.

GMax

And two as well

henry

Will Mooch allow youths "of color" into the museum?

James D.

I don't know about anyone else here, but when I loaded this page, the left sidebar ad was for "Shadow of Mordor" (a Lord of the Rings computer game).

Somehow that seems appropriate for a thread about Obama, and Chicago...

Jack is Back!

henry,

The Guggenheim in NYC let in 80 predominently AA students from the Brooklyn Science HS yestereday and after 1/2 hour of them spitting and throwing pennies down from the spiral walkway threw their asses out the door and banned them for life.

We await Moochelle's response.

Threadkiller

Will they have the original Xerox Multitask Workstation on display at the library? Or will it be a composite?

Jack is Back!

JamesD,

You need to get AdBlock. Never had a problem and have no popups ever on my Mac.

henry

TK, Kenyan birth certificate viewings for a fee. ;)

peter

That lasting presence is going to be stuck to our shoes like a dog turd.

NKonChrome

The guggenheim banning of the Bklyn Science school is unfortunate mass punishment. But if that school's union teachers can't supervise the kids and have them act in a civilized manner, too bad. I'm sure the Guggenheim can waive the $14 fee for kids who want to come back on their own, and behave properly.

Obummer's Library-- can't wait for some punk community organizer on the South Side to file lawsuits and 'stick it to the man' (UC, Rahm and unauthentic Obummer) to prevent public parks to be used for private purposes.

Threadkiller

Henry, maybe they can display the "Obama was born here plaque" that the hospital in Hawaii refused to put up.

Threadkiller

There is a quote out of place.

Ben

Boss Hawg Daley wants to know his share of the take even if he couldn't take it with him. Socialism confounds the Chicago Bund. They're still confused about Rubin asking people to steal rather than buy his book.

henry

Bitterly clinging to the title on her office door. New sheriff Chief Justice in town.

Beasts of England

Have we heard Tom Brady's reaction to this decision?

Ben

Oh dang. That was Hoffman's book.

Beasts of England

Couldn't you just do your state a favor and run Abrahamson over with your snow plow, henry?

Miss Marple

Lurch is meeting with Vladimir Putin today.

No good will come of this, I warrant.

NKonChrome

BoE-- Brady's agent (who's looking at millions in lost billings from Brady's loss of future earnings having been found to be a cheat and cover up artist) says 'Brady will appeal' the suspension. The basis for the appeal is weasel words about the suspension being based on insufficient 'proof' of cheating and inconsistent with other NFL suspensions. Weasel agent talk.

here's a link to a Forbes story: http://www.forbes.com/sites/maurybrown/2015/05/11/with-tom-brady-suspended-patriots-losing-picks-and-fined-how-long-till-roger-goodell-is-fired/2/

Thanks Beasts, I was hoping the Brady topic would get moved over here.

I am just about finished with a lengthy cut and paste that will fascinate everyone.

NKonChrome

'fascinate everyone' no it won't is my guess.

NKonChrome

I thought henry's plow was immobile. no?

Threadkiller

Just kidding!

This is all I got:

Will Fuddy be in ths Subud wing?

http://www.birtherreport.com/2015/05/full-audio-cdr-kerchner-discusqses.html

Probably shouldn't say "wing."

The Infamous Ignatz

--to prevent public parks to be used for private purposes--

Why should his library be any different than the hundreds of billions of public monies coerced out of the taxpayers at the point of imprisonment and shoveled to his private and quasi-public cronies.

henry

NK, its as mobile as that new Russian tank.

Beasts of England

In my own defense, I meant to ask if we'd received Brady's opinion about locating the Obama Porkapalooza to Chicago.

Jane

Hit,

You are a very talented guy!

NKonChrome

Ignatz@9:39-- that's obviously true. But in this case the Southsiders bringing the legal challenge are the 'right sort' of plaintiffs. Not property owners or taxpayers, no no no, these are the Southside poor victims, the multi-generational AAs and illegal mexicans and central americans, who need 'programs' and 'compensation' for loss of their public park. What will fat cat Obummer pay THEM from the swag he collects to put up this library? Buy popcorn.

Rick Ballard

The entrance to the Obama Paste Repository should have the picture of Obama bowing to King Abdullah on one side and King Salman mooning him on the other.

Polling news: Labour Pollster Confirms Bleeding Obvious.

"Public" polling is currently an exercise in herding with 'experts' taking money to conform to the expected outcome by fiddling their models like a NOAA scientismist adjusting and restating temperatures in the past to achieve a warmer tomorrow.

Marlene

LOL,Rick B. How about Michelle's dulcet tones narrating the audio tour?

NKonChrome

"polling' is in fact very accurate. Let's define polling. polling is a business or politician paying a professional a fee to find out what their customers/constituents really believe and want. That stuff you see in the media is not 'polling'.

NKonChrome

Obummer's library. Oh I can't wait until the Library bans ChiTown HS kids after they go wilding around the Library. Trading Places had a very good scene about this after the street guy became the homeowner.

Threadkiller

What does that say for the exit polling data that was gathered for all the major media outlets by only one firm?

Jeff Dobbs

New TM thread! New TM thread!

Oh, and my 2008 depiction of Obama's library was added above in an update.

Rick Ballard

""polling' is in fact very accurate."

Sure it is, if "accurate" means that any outcome from 47 to 53 is correct when a pollster generates 50 as the predicted response. The utility of the predicted outcome would be found somewhat wanting by bridge builders and airline pilots.

Bobby Jindal

What happens when you are looking for 100 as the predicted response?

Soylent Red

Will they put all of his (failed) NCAA brackets on display? Maybe his Beer Summit mug or the Reset Button? What about his coloring books?

I also think they should co-locate a clown college there.

jimmyk

Rick, there's also this, via Tim Blair:

The polling company Survation got numbers on the eve of the election that were very close to the actual outcome.

We had flagged that we were conducting this poll to the Daily Mirror as something we might share as an interesting check on our online vs our telephone methodology, but the results seemed so “out of line” with all the polling conducted by ourselves and our peers – what poll commentators would term an “outlier” – that I “chickened out” of publishing the figures – something I’m sure I’ll always regret.

http://survation.com/snatching-defeat-from-the-jaws-of-victory/

I think they miss an important point, though: Polling that is only accurate on the eve of an election is not particularly useful. If they can't get something more predictive farther in advance of the election, there's not much point, is there? Unless they want to argue that the earlier polls were accurate, but the Tories made better use of the information. But that's contradicted by Rick's story @9:47.

Porchlight

hit, what happened to the "Guest post by hit and run" styling? ;)

Jeff Dobbs

Honestly? I got tired of it.

Porchlight

Okay.

rse

Oh, lovely. http://www.educationdive.com/news/pending-clinton-support-makes-debt-free-college-major-part-of-dems-2016-pl/396731/

Hit, what else would be on the shelf at the library after his "8 to 10 years"?

Prairie Fire
Das Kapital
Rules for Radicals
Everyone Poops


pagar

How about the display of his writings at the Harvard Review while he was the Prisedent of that.

Porchlight

Course syllabi from his Ultra Important Constitutional Law course at Chicago.

Porchlight

Student ID from Columbia.

Threadkiller

His original annotated drafts of his best-selling composite books.

Those are wrapped up in bundles on the shelf near the copy machine.

Inscribed in stone over the entrance:

STEPPING ON THE FIGS THAT THE APES EAT, THEY CRVNCH.
