Beats - In a sane world, Ace's commenters would have their own comedy show. for example:

"Lets dump them all on an island. Promise the last one standing gets a pardon. And then shoot the survivor."

Exd, as long as we can treat red headed step children like.... (Oops, I'm a red of sorts). I remember my mom telling me the news of Brown vs Board of Education confused everyone in her class in high school at Punahou. Her class mates were a mix of native Hawaiian, various Asians, African Americans, and a few mainlanders. As it is my nieces can trace ancestors to the Scot highlands as well as Korea or Southern Cal Native tribes. This racialist crap truly sucks.

It seems like McCabe thought Rosenstein was providing cover to Trump in the Comey firing and then the Mueller investigation, narciso. These CYA memos aren't doing them any favors...

This has to be Fake News. How could this be true if Rosenstein is a member of the Deep State trying to destroy Trump? McCabe would know up front that he and Rosenstein were on the same team.

I really hate this trash software.

In response to JiB on the last thread, Iguodala being out will certainly help the Cavs since he's their primary LeBron stopper, although except for a couple games he's been in the beast mode consistently. The Warriors are still the overwhelming favorites but that's why they play the games. The Warriors were very fortunate to have an injured CP3 for the last two games, an odd series of attrition caused in part by the asshole commissioner not allowing for enough time for travel.

Except for people like KK, I absolutely despise all SF fanbases, particularly the Warriors. If the Cavs should somehow gut out a championship, I will have a championship tee shirt for every day of my Santa Cruz trip in August.

The latest from Sundance...

https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/05/30/trey-gowdys-recent-activity-highlights-deep-state-action-against-devin-nunes/#more-149943

In his congressional testimony John Brennan was smartly (and intentionally) positioning himself out of the picture from the perspective of the illegal acts within the entire process. ODNI James Clapper while rubbing his face and scratching his head had taken the same route earlier. That approach would leave James Comey, Andrew McCabe and the small group within the DOJ-NSD and FBI.

The CIA and DNI wanted all traceable fingerprints to be from DOJ and FBI. And that’s exactly what happened…. so far.

I imagine Comey and McCabe have come to the realization they are getting thrown under the bus by Brennan and Clapper. I wonder if that will make them more willing to make a deal with Huber/Mueller in exchange for testimony against some bigger fish?

Captain Hate,

I love that NYP front page so much I can't tell you.

1. It shows Trump knows how to command the news cycle.
2. As I said, it will enrage people like George Will.
3. Ben Shapiro ha already been triggered.
4. Karsashian has a HUGE following on Twitter and Facebook and they will be seeing this and thinking maybe Trump isn't a bad guy.
5. Not only George Will and Shapiro, but Kristol, Boot, Sykkes, etc. Tomorrow will be glorious!

Narcissi, I'm too distracted by the Asian babes in Jamaica to worry about Blofeld. Must have been his plan.

We have a 6-fppt s[[ace between our fence line and the fence line behind it. We didn't know until recently that even though it is the electric company's easment, WE are resonsible for cutting it. Of course, by the time we discovered it the area was pretty tall with weeds and seedling trees.

My neighbor, who has been in Arizona, came back to find that her kids had NOT maintained her back yard. So she hired a guy to clear her easement with a bushhog, and came over and asked us if we wanted to hire him, too!

ONLY 40 DOLLARS! Yay!

He did a great job and now we can keep it trimmed. And he also will spread mulch for me. This is a big deal as my hipa and knees can't do the heeavy yard work any more.

He told me he was grateful for the work, and I am grateful to have found him. Win-win!

Miss Marple the Deplorable

That should read "6-foot space"

Nice deal Miss M! Govt easements suck cesspools

Buckeye,

I been under the glide-path 4-5 years now. Never have heard anything that loud before. Went out on my balcony after the first one went over. Next one over, the same thing, just as loud, but smaller than most planes I see. It didn't look like any of the small jets I am used to seeing. Didn't look like a cargo jet either.

So from small size and noise way beyond usual I assume they were fighters.

Teterboro has noise and size limitations. This would have violated the noise standard as I understand it.

Really weird, usually the noisiest planes are the prop-pushers with that high pitched scream.

RattlerGator

RG, my friend (and, i mean that) - Wictor is calling for a national Racism Day where all of us are encouraged to hurl racist insults at each other.

And to 'put his money where his mouth is', he has invited the twitterverse to hurl racist insults at him.

see here:

https://twitter.com/ThomasWictor/status/1001974154722242561

no doubt he's as simplistic about this issue as i am but, fwiw, i really do feel strongly that there's a huge emperor's new clothes aspect to all of this guff: if instead we could just get back to seeing the basic stupidity of racial thinking (remember Flip Wilson's hilarious sketch about hating midgets?) maybe then we could get past it.

Posted by: exdemocrat | May 30, 2018 at 08:32 PM

Of course we're friends, exdemocrat, and more than that -- brothers who have traveled a somewhat similar path. I hope my usage of "simplistic" didn't wound you, it certainly wasn't intended to do so. I speak my mind. Sharply, and with some rough elbows. And I expect sharp responses in return, because most everything here -- including the battles -- are in good fun.

On the National Racism Day idea: Wictor's idea is . . . wait for it . . . far, far too simplistic. Ha !!!

But I understand where he's coming from. I've long played with an idea in my mind revolving around certain folks (White people) adopting the word "nigger" and the phrase "my Nig" as an experiment. How long do you think it would take for the race hustlers to object?

I mentioned the minefield of racial identity earlier today; do y'all remember how much I love this routine from Dave Chappelle ???

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLOw_SzkRQ8

We have to maintain the ability to laugh at ourselves, people, we absolutely have to maintain our ability to laugh at ourselves . . . and, at times, our history too.

Y'all may remember I played this one time for my Georgia Peach. Mama was not happy with my black azz. But the shiznit was, and remains, funny as hell to me.

You do realize that Trump just secured the Kardashian fan club vote, dontcha? Maxine must be going white with rage about now.

between Calypso Louie and the lowest unemployment rate in the African American community ever, as well as the push for more carter schools in inner cities the Republicans, if they were smart, would push their achievements and really gum up the Left's works. Imagine Nancy Narcolepsy having to spend millions she doesn't have on trying to keep one of her special interest groups in the fold.

Conservatives need to go on the offensive and simply point out th sheer corruption and evil of the Democratic Party. 60 years of rule in the cities and 60 years of failure.

I would like to thank President Trump for his time this afternoon. It is our hope that the President will grant clemency to Ms. Alice Marie Johnson who is serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offense.

Look at that. Kim Kardashian writes a dignified thank you.

I agree with matt. Kim's fan club will follow her lead.

The Federal Commission on School Safety will have its first "field" hearing—and second meeting—at a school that has embraced Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. Advocates are already questioning whether Education Secretary Betsy DeVos will come away with something new to share with the K-12 field.

That was in an ed week blurb late today. Making pbis the solution to school shootings is nitro. Accurately understood PBIS and the PROMISE Program in parkland are functionally the same. We are so caught up in the behavioral science manipulation that every tragedy becomes an excuse for it. Forget that littleton, co was one of the original pilots.

RG: Chappelle and Eddie Murphy are two big name comedians who weren't afraid to "go there" when it came to pointing out the absurdities in racial perceptions. Bill Burr is the only currently active comedian that i am aware of who is close to being as transgressive as those two were, but i don't pay as close attention to comedy now as i once did.

RattlerGator

RG-I made a comment at the end of the last thread that you might want to look at about my experience that prosperous expanding areas of the south had come to grips and moved on in ways other parts of the country had not.

I think that was one of the reasons I was so shocked when I was at the rollout of the Metro Atlanta Equity Atlas and there were distinguished professionals discussing all the prejudice they had encountered and what must be done and assuming every existing white audience member had to have had slave owners in their past. Made me heartsick.

Posted by: rse | May 30, 2018 at 05:09 PM

I went back and checked it out, rse. Agree with you and Stephanie. There's a conclusory lie that builds off of a good white people / bad white people narrative that allows for so much of this, IMHO. I tried to address this, in part, in this column at American Greatness:

https://amgreatness.com/2017/11/02/trump-has-broken-the-apology-hypnosis-on-race/

Just did a quick brief of the column for the first time since it was written; that's some damn good writing, man! With the apology hypnosis broken, this current freakout simply has to be endured. Along those lines, I hope y'all read Julie Kelly's brilliant piece posted today:

https://amgreatness.com/2018/05/30/dear-ex-friends-in-the-resistance/

I can't begin to tell y'all how much I love that column. She just *eviscerated* them!

What a crazy day; I wrote so many responses to comments here and most of them weren't posted. Exdemocrat, your comment about the response of your former friends in the U.K. won't leave me alone. I don't think they are lost, though. Someone has to break their apology hypnosis.

There's a conservative talk show host in Nashville named Phil Valentine. (He's also syndicated, you might be able to get him in AL, IN, MI and OR).

Today he was talking about Trump's rally. First off Jim Acosta and some bimbo eruption from CNN were talking about being heckled. The disinfo babe had some teenager calling her "Fake News" and pussy Jim Acosta had someone calling him a scumbag for 20 solid minutes. Hilarious.

I think it was CNN who said there were only a thousand people in attendance. The venue holds about ten thousand and they were about half full. But they are fair arbiters. Yes sir. I wish people would start throwing tomatoes at White House Correspondents.
