Hubs first post-retirement job was overseeing a section of gates at Charlotte Stadium. He said the Mexican soccer fans were wild and crazy - literally. Had no conception of assigned seats or paying for kids in tow. Many brought huge drums they'd set up on the outside concourse which they banged loudly throughout the game. All feigned ignorance of English of the "Don't stand against the rail" variety. Can't imagine how they'd be at a World Cup event.


Disney has gone full SJW. I'm sure Dumbo will be fighting racial discrimination and/or advocating for animal rights. The villain will probably be an evil white male circus owner or ringleader. Wish I were wrong.

Thanks for that Surber article. It's really good!

My fear is that it will be too dark. It's by Tim Robbins.

Do you mean Tim Burton, MM? He's a freak for sure. Just avoid. Disney is no longer the Disney we grew up with.


MM: With Disney's recent record I dread to think of what devilry they will come up with in Dumbo. Transexual elephants no less. Will this mean the end of the Republican elephant.


Pretty safe to assume the jive-talking black crows in the original won't be back.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Yes, Tim Burton.

I agree. I will be shocked if they don't corrupt the story.

Video at link. Quite amazing performance from an unexpected performer.


"Dumbo. Transexual elephants no less. Will this mean the end of the Republican elephant."

Dumbo, freed from the chains of the imperialist baby killers.

I've fallen way behind since last week. Have I missed anything important?


If things don't change. I'm leaving.

Imagine the drooling fool's delight when he read that.

Does anyone really think TM is cleaning up on clicks to his advertisers? How many of us even see the ads?



the "blue wave" team will be doing back flips over this. A Dem won the special election state Senate seat in WI. A couple thoughts: it does not change the Senate majority, it only lasts until November (4 months), the Senate is not expected to meet until after November.



I support Trump-Kim, but when Trump tweeted:

Before taking office people were assuming that we were going to War with North Korea. President Obama said that North Korea was our biggest and most dangerous problem. No longer - sleep well tonight!

What immediately came to mind was, “Peace in our time.”


AP FACT CHECK: Trump bobbles facts on NKorea history, nukes



"Trump bobbles facts"

as if Odumbo was perfect.


AP prefers presidents who respond to planted questions with scripted answers.

People overlooked this story at the time, but Corey Stewart accepted – and then publicly defended last year – an endorsement from a prominent neo-Confederate who protested a statue to a black tennis star and did a racist attack on Nikki Haley.

Apparently no one must point out that some people do have the mind of a muppet unsuited for certain professions.

Captain Hate

This is an old article from February of 2017 which reminds me how creepy Sanford is and why I am so glad he got defeated

Sanford and Jeff Flake both seem completely mental. Where does the GOP come up with such creeps.


I don't know though why the writer of that article is unaware that anyone go go to nap.edu and register in order to be able to download report itself for free. It's only the print copy that costs money.

Janet 🚬

Weak, virtue signaling Republicans are gonna be coming out of the woodwork to sabotage Corey Stewart.

"Expect a great deal of Republican soul-searching on this one."

Really? Not from me.


Corey Stewart came on the political scene here in Virginia, being VERY outspoken against illegal immigration.
He also turned DOWN fed money, which was unheard of then, because it would be a one time deal, but would commit his constituents to more debt in the long run.

Instead of buying into the phony SJW angst about Virginia's history....
how about making Democrats explain their association with a baby killing, baby scalp selling, multimillion dollar chain business in the here & now?

You're against statues of Robert E. Lee?...fine.
We're against slaughtering our current HERITAGE & FUTURE.


Brian Fraley @Dailytakes
Take that Supreme Court. Still waiting on you decision on the maps:

So, to follow the Holder/WisDems logic, Gerrymandering kept AD42 in GOP hands. But what, then of SD10 and SD1? Bottom line, the compact, contiguous districts in Wisconsin all make up a 'fair map.' Perhaps fewer seats than ever are 'locks' --especially this year.

re: the removal of "reminders of slavery"

i forgot who said this last year but it works for me:

"they have every right to hide from history; but, they do not have the right to hide it from me."

So funny to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN. They are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea. 500 days ago they would have “begged” for this deal-looked like war would break out. Our Country’s biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!

From Clarice’s Surber link:

President Trump physically and symbolically left the G7 behind to talk to Kim. President Trump's actions raised eyebrows -- and they fell off.

Europe has a fifth column in its ranks: Putin's cheerleaders who want to destroy Europe & liberal democracy from within: Le Pen, Wilders, Farage, Orbàn, Kaczynski, Salvini use Kremlin money & intel. Like Farage's friend Arron Banks, who colluded w/ Russians to deliver #Brexit


Looks like the Russian hoax is going international. Apparently they are behind all lost leftist causes in Europe as well.


Fun in Yemen: "The liberation of the port is the start of the fall of the Houthi militia and will secure marine shipping in the Bab al-Mandab strait and cut off the hands of Iran, which has long drowned Yemen in weapons that shed precious Yemeni blood," the Arab-backed government-in-exile said in a statement.

We can't do that! It's rude! The New York Times will write mean things about us! It's Not Who We Are!

Ditto that, Porch.

Until we pay rent to TM, we have no cause to complain.

Yes, and most of them are on the left accusing the right.

"planted questions with scripted answers."

For which the (non)answer can take 30 minutes counting all the umms and ahs.

Wow, I didn't expect the Disney "re-imagining" of 'Song of the South' so soon, hot on the heels of #Dumbo live-action remake. pic.twitter.com/gM6EjHWg1l

Pic at link. I guess some other folks aren't pleased with the Dumbo remake, either.


Eh? Trump is aware of the peril?

Shut mah mouf..

Isn't it time for Hollywood to, you know, come up with new stores?


Send Ivanka Ivanov..

Split CA into three states?

With six senators?

Might as well throw in DC to make it eight, right?

I'd rather just give them both away to the highest bidder.

In my wandering yesterday, I saw two stories (maybe Drudge).

One reported that IQs have been falling at the rate of about 7 points per generation...RSE?

The other, perhaps related, is that one half of millineals take it for granted that they will become millionaires. That is what happens when you tell them everybody is above average I guess.

Pimp, Brothel Owner Wins GOP Primary for Nevada Legislature Seat

Pimp and brothel owner Dennis Hof won a Republican primary for a Nevada Legislature seat on Tuesday, ousting a three-term incumbent hospital executive.

He celebrated his victory alongside famed Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss. Hof is most known for starring in the HBO reality series "Cathouse," which focuses on the lives of workers at Hof's Moonlite BunnyRanch.

After defeating incumbent James Oscarson, Hof is favored in his race against Democrat Lesia Romanov in November due to the Republican lean of the district.

A Donald Trump supporter, Hof pointed to the president as his guiding light.


Hof has been all over the map politically. He endorsed libertarian Republican Ron Paul for president in 2008 and 2012, but in 2016 he launched a campaign called "Hookers for Hillary" Clinton.

"California 3-way?Legislators* would lose their perch and perqs..."

Not really. At the state level there would be three governments where there was one, politicians and employees. What? You don't think government employees would be reduced to take into account the smaller size?

What I'd like to hear is reforms to military waste but at least a significant culling of bull-teat bureaucrats in civil service.

"I'd rather just give them both away to the highest bidder."

Makes no sense.
