Daddy,

I've tuned in 3 weeks in a row, and fallen asleep every time. I also tuned into
Kennedy tonite based on your non-recommendation , and it too was unwatchable. More Blue Bloods please.

narciso

Rhodes is the name, you were looking for,

Miss Marple

Gutfeld needs a panel for the whole hour and shouldn't switch them every 20 minutes. The Liberal Wall has to go and also the blonde who apparently is supposed to be a cricket or something. Show is disjointed and boring.

And not every single sentence out of Gutfelds mouth Ned's to be a joke.

I tried That Kelly show but I turned the channel after about 5 minutes. Unwatchable.

Jim Miller

Here's a thought that amuses me (though perhaps it shouldn't).

During the 2008 election someone dug up Obama's mother's family and and found a slave owner way back when.

And I am reasonably sure that a similar investigation would find slave catchers among Obama's father's ancestors in Kenya. (Typically, the Arab slave traders worked with black allies on the coast to raid tribes in the interior. Often those allies became Muslims.)

I suppose I should add, in keeping with the theme of the post, that I don't think either of those sins is in Obama's DNA.

narciso

Yes Kennedy Is usually insufferable, yes gut feld is insufferable on his own.

narciso

Lowery was the weasel who was detained in ferguson after the first wave of rioting.

narciso

Unfortunately he was released subsequemtly

Stephanie

If we're going to reference "what it [the battle flag] represented at the time" to call for removing the flag in SC, shouldn't we also ban the Democrat Party?

narciso

So the va is even more fracked up then before?

Miss Marple

I meant Kennedy not Kelly.

I actually turned to O'Reilly.

Jim Miller

My apologies if this has already been mentioned, but I think , if so, it's worth repeating.

I picked up a copy of the current (June) isue of Commentary at noon, and found it chock full of good stuff. Here are the top 3: Charles Murray on "The United States of Diversity", Arthur Herman on "The Smearing of Scooter Libby", and James Kirchick on "The Dangerous Unseriousness of Rand Paul".

GUS

Hope and Change. What a fucking mess Obama is.

DebinNC

Yep. Lowery set up his headquarters in the Ferguson McDonald's. When the rioting started and LE entered and told everyone to leave but Wesley didn't want to leave his prime spot, police forcibly removed him. Apparently, the concept that inaction also has consequences was new to him. Iirc Lowery's most serious claim was that an officer's actions caused him to bump into the drink machine on his way out.

Jack The Trans-Former

There is only one flag that represents the United States of America. It is Old Glory. We do not pledge allegience to the Confederate flag. It is an anachorism and if the people of the southern states think it is still some how relevant they are living in a past that has long passed by.

I have no idea what the acceptance of that flag means to people when we, in the 21st centiury, have accepted our destiny as one nation, indivisible, with liiberty and justice for all. Not just those despicable Yankess but also those folks in the south.

Janet

How bout a list of all the things in this world that should be banned! That's the ticket!
Actions don't matter.
If objects offend anyone, they should be banned!
Will Che merchandise be banned?
How bout abortion adverts?....they've killed a lot of people. Maybe the Planned Parenthood logo should be banned.

Can we ban organizations that offend too? I'm offended by the "racist in their DNA" group la Raza.

Ban, Ban, BAN!! Let the banning begin!

and if we're gonna start banning flags...how bout lets ban the rainbow flag?

Janet

THat idiotic transgender bathroom sign offended me too. Ban it!

DebinNC

Sears has had to deal with third-party peeps selling items with swastikas. Walmart made a reasonable business decision imo. Amazon still sells Confederate symbol items, and it doesn't matter to me if they stop or continue as it's a business decision, not a Constitutional rights decision.

Stephanie

Quick reminder: The flag involved in the controversy is NOT the 'Confederate' flag. It is the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia under General Lee.

Also of note - most KKK democrats carried and burned the US flag not the Confederate flag nor the VA Battle flag.

Eric in Boise

Mark O:

And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man.

And Lo and Behold, it came to pass that Obama was just not that smart©.

Janet

If you think this push is just about the VA battle flag you are crazy.
...street names, statues, school names,...

It's all gonna be attacked. If you say anything, you are a racist.

What I know is that the MFM doesn't care one bit if I'm offended by things.

Cispigmented Heteronormative Microagressive Ignatz

So, is the plan to print up new history books erasing Robert E Lee, slavery and any other unpleasantness that might offend ala Uncle Joe Stalin, or do we print new ones showing Confederates to all be heterosexual Republican rotary members who drove gas guzzlers?

Since I saw people on TV who told Jesse waters that dinosaurs became extinct 200 years ago, nothing would surprise me.

Our Anchorage Black Bear relocation experiment ended today. Fish & Game shot dead 4 of the relocated Black Bears, (for chicken coop thievery and breaking and entering), as the 5th bear raced off into the woods one step ahead of the assassins:

4 of 5 relocated black bears killed near Hope campground

The story does a decent recap of the whole episode, while the comments argue back and forth between the "Should have shot them the first time" crowd, and the "Should have done a better job relocating them" crowd.

They've recently rename some building at UNC Chapel Hill that has been there forever. Named (IIRC) for a former governor who was either a founder or huge supporter of UNC because he was a slave owner.

Next---the Washington Monument?

Saying that racism is in our DNA is infinitely more palatable than saying there is a group of people who have been severely damaged by rejecting what they have labeled as "white values" and glorifying the ghetto/prison culture, no?

Just for the record: (August 2010)

In conversation Tuesday with a black female caller who was complaining about her white husband's racist friends and their use of the word, Dr Laura Schlessinger said:

Black guys use it all the time. Turn on HBO and listen to a black comic, and all you hear is n****, n*****, n*****. I don't get it. If anybody without enough melanin says it, it's a horrible thing. But when black people say it, it's affectionate. It's very confusing.

ABC: Dr. Laura to Quit Radio After N-Word Flap

LATimes: Dr. Laura to leave radio amid N-word controversy

Here's the full transcript and audio of what Dr Laura said

I hope she has a chance to come on some Media Outlet and giver her opinion on the President's use of the "N-word.

Extraneus

DublinDave is right. It's amazing that the racist meme is still powerful. And it's not libs who are to blame for agitating. It's the spineless fools who surrender to them.

jimmyk on iPhone

On that SC raisin ruling: if the government had simply levied a special 'raisin tax,' wouldn't that have been perfectly ok? Even if they used the revenues to buy the same amount of raisins that they took? That would suggest to me that any product-specific tax, like the gasoline tax, amounts to a 'taking.'

jimmyk on iPhone

In fact I might have thought Roberts could have called the raisin confiscation a tax. Hasn't he done something like that before?

Shocking that the lone dissenter stating that the state can just take the raisins with no compensation, was Sonia Sodomizer.

Sonia is the one speaking on so many college campuses where the students gush over the not-so-wise latina.

Sotomayor is a travesty. How incredibly insecure do you have to be to call yourself a wise Latina. What an idiot.

So Mr president, that word isn't enough, however why do so many of your supporters and associates, jazee Chris rock, to cite two so liberally use. Why is it so common in young people's lexicon, and who knows

Not sure who's the worst at inflating their own intelligence, the wise mofongo, 404, or the dumbest retard to crawl out of Scranton.

maryrose,

Victory for the people not the government. Raisins are now free to swamp the market.

Sotomayor probably thought the confiscated raisins would be used to compensate the Cesar Chavez grape pickers for their labor.

Captain Hate

In any of the commiecrats desires to restrict free speech on the internet, have they ever tried to sell it by claiming that they'll eliminate those annoying Adobe updates? I swear as soon as I acquiesce to one of them another starts bugging me.

Dem Party Tribalism and Propaganda: someone ought to do a anthropological study of it. All spring it was the transgender nonsense, this weekend the Obummer 'nigger' and DNA thing, this week when Kennedy discovers homo marriage in that really old constitution thing, it will be a gay old time. DD must have cashed a Troll Check, b/c he actual wrote an honest comment about how the this whole meme is media and Dem propaganda. They've got nothing else but the propaganda; let it go. And then, when things settle, keep thumping the Progs with the dreadful reality of what they actually do. I won't play the propaganda game by their rules.

According to the HIll article linked below, your 8:19 is all about keeping the millenial vote out of the GOP camp and secure in the Democrat camp.

I've been beyond depressed at the news and the apparent state of the world recently.

I really feel like it's the Devil hard at work everywhere. It's hard to think of any other explanation sometimes.

NKonChrome

JiB-- even the Hill has to admit reality. On any objective basis the Dem/Progs have ruined much opportunity for millennials. ObummerCare taxes, ruining the job market, THE DEBT. Hence the Dems have to use propaganda to play 'look squirrel' with millennials, to make conservatives 'too icky' to vote for. Won't work. The millennials who buy in won't vote for anyone, except maybe the Green Party, the ones with at least half a brain will go conservative-libertarian.

henry

More progs eating their own. Gays vs black churches in Madison.

NKonChrome

henry-- thanks for that. Another example of the Prog Tribalism being doomed. We rightly despair at the Legacy Media being teammates with the Dems and running their propaganda, but let's keep the faith and push back at the right time. The Millennials and christian and family and economic producers in the Dem tribal structure are ripe for the picking.

Lots of venom in a few comments on that one NK.

that Chris Rickert character seems like a real piece of work. Nice smirk in his photo. All of these Progs are just so hate filled. They are vile.

The friction between the gays and the black churchgoers may be one of the dims' touchiest conflicts. The churchgoers were significant Prop 8 opponents and expect lib candidates to pander to them during election season Sundays. The gays are the shiny new toy with a lot of media access and quite a few bucks. Something has to give. *Popcorn*

Yesterday’s ‘per se’ takings decision. http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/14pdf/14-275_c0n2.pdf

From the dissent: “The Order simply requires the Hornes to set aside a portion of their raisins—a requirement with which the Hornes refused to comply. “ if ordering the family farmer to not do anything with their own property is not a per se taking, what is?

The "Raisin Administration Committee" boy the New Dealers were fascists; today's Progs use the same playbook; 75 years ago it was Sulzburger-Ochs families and Jack Warner doing FDR's propaganda, now it's Facebook, Google, Comcast, AP and still the Sulberger-Ochs families doing the Progs propaganda. Same playbook, different technology.

Old Lurker

Truly the scary thing about Sotomayor's dissent was her statement that, since the government didn't take it all (she said left the farmer with some of his property rights), then it was not really a taking worthy of compensation.

How anyone with such a thought could be entrusted to protect the Constitution is beyond me.

"“The legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination in almost every institution of our lives, you know, that casts a long shadow, and that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on.”

Every institution?

The 7-11 on the block? The DMV? The White House?

How exactly does an institution that only existed in a handful of states define the whole nation for all time? How does Jim Crow define the educational system in Hawaii? How has slavery influenced Seattle?

But we’re not supposed to ask questions like that. This is about collective guilt for personal power."

OL,

The real scary thing about Sotomayor is that the US Senate executed their "advice and consent" responsibility 68-31. At least 31 republicans had the good sense to say no.

If you go to that Marc Maron website for the famous "garage" podcast with the JEF please check out the comments. We are truly divided especially on how we see Obama and his destruction of the country. I have a hard time believing these people live in the same country I do.

Miss Marple

Jack,

Agree on the division. The sad thing is, when bad times happen, they cannot see the reason, and instead blame evil GOP, whites, Christians.

That is what happened after 9/11. After the shock wore off, they started the "Bush did it" lie. When the economy collapsed, it was the fault of the Republicans. When Obamacare collapses, it will be the fault of the GOP for not supporting it (and of greedy doctors, whom we all know are all Republicans).

It's a sophomoric view of the world which ascribes no blame to members of their party or group, and assigns all blame to those who are outside those spheres. This way they can continue to justify their beliefs and actions.

I fear really bad times are on the horizon for our nation.

James D

I have a hard time believing these people live in the same country I do.

I have a hard time beliving they live in the same universe I do, or are the same species I am.

A seriously disturbed kid with South African and Rhodesian patches on his coat walks into a church and shoots nine people because they're black and the response is ban the Confederate battle flag?

I don't have a problem with the state no longer flying it, but if the objective is to dissuade this kind of crime in the future isn't banning that flag precisely the thing to make a similar idiot conclude we need a race war more than ever?

The story does a decent recap of the whole episode, while the comments argue back and forth between the "Should have shot them the first time" crowd, and the "Should have done a better job relocating them" crowd.

Yeah, but the real question is: would they have shot them if they'd been white bears? And I think we all know the answer to that.

Beasts of England

Well, Ig, we fall into the structure of reason during every prog false narrative and simply have to remember that they're not hampered by linear thought.

I'll go back to DublinDave's comment this morning about on to Mississippi. None of this had anything to do with the flag or Mississippi, but that doesn't preclude them taking off - with the media in tow - to their next mission.

I have a solution for this - as do many here - but when the party that best represents many of our views continues to act as an enabling, battered spouse, we are good and truly f*cked.

San Fran high school to offer LBGTQWERTYUIOP classes this fall.

What I find odd is 28% of the punks "identify" as the alphabet acronym. The vast, vast majority of homosexuals don't have biological kids.
So even if we assume half of the parents of these twerps are homosexual how do 28% turn out queer?
Could it be the Heinz ketchup of gender varieties is a leftist "construct" that these misled yutes are "choosing" rather than genetic predetermination?

Moreover doesn't the adamant, angry insistence by homosexuals that they didn't choose their state kind of demonstrate, even more so than the pitiful "pride" parades, that if they did have a choice it wouldn't have been the one they have?

Cloture vote on the TPA comes up today . . . and this one's going to be close:

On its first go-around, TPA barely made it past this procedural hurdle, with only 13 Democrats coming along for the ride — and that package included Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), a key Democratic priority to buffer the effects of globalization for American workers. Without it, even those few Democrats may take a pass on TPA, which would once again put fast-track into park.
Cruz changed his vote to "no" and most of the Dems who voted for it the first time (when TAA was attached) are reportedly resisting, so my best guess remains: likely to fail.

On the merits, Cruz claims there's a backdoor deal on ExIm bank (and possibly other sweeteners) . . . and more to come.

If he's right, well, the trade deal is not such an imperative that I'd be willing to give away a bunch of Dem wish list items to get it. (Especially since the Obama crew can be expected to negotiate poorly on the actual trade bills.)

A clean bill without TAA? Good. With TAA? Still net positive. With TAA, ExIm, and visa deal? Probably better off letting the Dems kill it. (Which is politically better, anyway.)
