Here lies Dharampal Singh
Irritation to the monkeys he did bring
Lots of bricks they threw down
And killed him on his way into town

Mr. Singh should have been armed.

“Mr Singh's family has lodged a formal complaint and named monkeys as the accused but police insisted they cannot prosecute monkeys and have declared Mr Singh’s death was an accident.”

Can’t prosecute, but presumably can shoot them. When I was in Costa Rica I was warned that if you annoy the monkeys they will pee on you. Brick throwing is upping the ante.


this is the future of the global warmists too:

Sloppy science bears substantial blame for Americans’ bad eating habits. “A spectacular case of sloppy science came crashing to a close last month. Cornell University’s Brian Wansink, a world-renowned scientist who seized headlines with his research on American eating habits, had many of his papers retracted and resigned from his professorship. Wansink’s fall is not just the tale of a single scientist gone astray. It is, instead, an indictment of an entire type of nutrition science that has led to mistaken dietary advice dispensed to Americans for decades.

My guess is it was an attempted robbery. At closing time with the days receipts in the registers. He probably knew the manager locked the door at a certain time and then unlocked it to let out the remaining customers.

"nutrition science" is to science what astrology is to astronomy. And the misinformation gets filtered down over and over for years--If you doubt me, read any womens magazine or , say, yahoo "nutritionist's" advice. It goes from bad scientists to thousands of minimally educated "nutritionists" to the world.

Peace be unto Claude Bernard.

Wansick makes one sick, but there are proliferating Piltdown Mann's. It's friggin' easy to snow with stats, even easier to be ignorant of their correct use.

Science is being victimized by its own success. It has such powerful enlightenment cachet, that it is susceptible to perversion by those entranced by fame, money, and/or power.

And we've got a few of such; they will always be with us, just as will the poor.

What the press doesn't say about the handouts they reprint without questioning the source.

Apologies for using the Cheesehead's name, wanly.

Heh, re nutrition and health, years ago I forecast that when the government finally was exhausted with paying for the drugs to treat hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and obesity, that it would compel people to 'Work For Food', 'cuz that is what prevented those chronicities back when we grubbed for every calorie. Salt often entailed a lot of work, sweets were difficult except for fruit and honey, well those were rare or difficult enough. Fats nearly impossible unless one worked hard enough to kill a wary animal.

So what do have at the punch of a button? Salt, sweet, and fat.

It reminds me of the cannibal who was asked what he'd had for lunch. 'Oh, Henry' was the reply.



"'nutrition science' is to science what astrology is to astronomy."

Everything in moderation remains the best advice, IMO.

Sundance at the Conservative Treehouse makes a good case for it being Mike Rogers, the former representative and intelligence committee member (not the Admiral who was the head of NSA).

He makes a circumstantial case here:



Thank you MissM, Sundance is calling him Decepticon Mike Rogers. The Plot Thickens!

matt - deplore me if you must

The headline letter the media are touting is apparently from a group of far left non-practicing Jews. Even on the Facebook account of our Diocese' Peace and Justice minister, the hatred for Trump is out of hand.

The WaPo has gone spastic in its diatribes.

The lack of self-awareness of an entire segment of our society is both disgraceful and very scary.

Captain Hate

I'm no fan of that Mike Rogers, as narc and I used to discuss, but Sundance needs to shut his gossipy hole about tossing out accusations to his clapping seals. He's better at accumulating data than he is at analyzing it.



Why would h wait so long to reveal the name?

Miss Marple

Well Captain Hate, I DO wonder why Rogers was let go from the transition team so abruptly.

We will see. There are now so many names, departments and issues involved in this that I cannot keep track anymore.

Real geniuses, aren't they? Just now it occurs to them that obstructing everything,saying they will impeach the President, personally attacking Justice Kavanaugh, and forming mobs in the streets is NOT a winning platform.

I was reading the MyFitnessPal blog one time, and there was one of those cheerful "informative" posts about diet and exercise. The second comment was brilliant: "Whoa! Dude! That's a lotta Bro Science in there!"

"Bro Science" is a term that needs to be spread widely, LOL!

Captain Hate

Well Captain Hate, I DO wonder why Rogers was let go from the transition team so abruptly.

Rogers is a walking conflict of interest so it could have been a lot of things, just like Fat RINO Bastard was let go at the same time because his ego, unlike his boiler, still lacks a surgical reduction device. Maybe Sundance is right but it's still a guess on his part.

New Jersey Newspaper Endorses ‘Awful’ Menendez: ‘He’s No Gem’ but He’ll Check Trump

"The question is which candidate can best fight Trump's toxic policies, his grotesque appeals to racial and ethnic tribalism, and his corrosive attacks on the pillars of our democracy, starting with the rule of law," the board wrote. "That makes this an easy decision: Menendez is the better choice, by far. He has our endorsement."

It called the race a battle between "two awful candidates whose most convincing argument is that the other guy is unfit to serve."

The Star-Ledger ripped Hugin for being unclear on some of his views, his background in the pharmaceutical industry, and being a supporter of Trump's. It praised Menendez for his role in drafting the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, as well as his stances on climate change and immigration reform.

Nevertheless, the board was unforgiving in its assessment of Menendez's conduct with Melgen and called it an "act of profound narcissism" that he stayed in the race for re-election.

"Before he was caught in 2015, Sen. Robert Menendez broke Senate rules by routinely accepting expensive gifts, including private jets to luxury resorts abroad," the board wrote. "He kept those gifts secret, breaking another rule. He then used his office to promote the personal and business interests of the man who paid the bills. All that was the unanimous conclusion of the Senate ethics committee, including all its Democrats."

"It's a miracle that Menendez escaped criminal conviction, and an act of profound narcissism that he stayed in the race despite this baggage, putting a Democratic seat at risk while Donald Trump sits in the White House," it added.

That is correct. I thought I had made that clear.

I sure want this whole thing ended with a definitive report on who did what. I also want the media to at least pretend they are unbiased, rather than doing all-out propaganda.

I was listening to Anthony Scaramucci on Fox yesterday and he said that he went to over 27 rallies with the President during the campaign, and he said what people don't realize is that he really loves the people who attend, especially the blue collar workers, because of all of his work in construction.

How long I have waited for a President that understands and relates to the average American! And instead of being allowed to see him in favorable interviews and appearances like the Halloween event last night, the media gives almost non-stop vitriol.

CNN's ratings are tanking and they seem unconcerned. I wonder if someone like Steyer is paying them.

Thank God for the internet!

For any Cleveland fans...

Hue's been fired.


A Judicial Watch board member, as a guest on Lou Dobbs' show, suggests that George Soros is helping to fund the caravan.

This type of talk is apparently "an anti-Semitic trope". CNN quotes Fox programming guy condemning the rhetoric while announcing that the segment will be pulled from rotation.

So any criticism of Soros, a Jew but a self-hating one who hates Israel, is anti-Semitic. And Judicial Watch, a vigorous supporter of Jews and Israel, is the anti-Semite.

The world is crazy.


Why do they feel they need to stick up for Soros?



So any criticism of Soros, a Jew but a self-hating one who hates Israel, is anti-Semitic.

And criticism of Dershowitz for defending Trump, Sheldon Adelson, David Horowitz, et al, is not anti-Semitic.

Captain Hate

Good riddance to Hue. Now fire Goodell.

Bernardi Dr la paz

The significance of Mike Roger's was he was on the transition till he was sidelined about a month after the election.


Soros is not just your average self-hating Jew. His first fortune was the money that the Nazis gave him for turning over his relatives and Jewish neighbors at the tail end of WWII.

One Note Johnny here.

Had my head in the sand most of the weekend while JOM sorted itself out.

Was this noted?

So I saw a short clip of Obama in one of his speeches. (took me that long to find the remote) The line I saw as more or less: "NOT ONE member of my administration has been indicted. In less than two years, Trump could field a baseball team with his people who have been indicted"...

That right there is how you drive a truck through a hole in the fence created by the administration.

Exactly, MM.

The Left has spent DECADES spewing vile, hateful, bigoted, sexist, racist, elininationist rhetoric.

If you oppose any Leftist program or idea, for any reason, you're attacked as a genocidal monster.

And for decades, the right has sat back and accepted it. But, God forbid, we finally have someone who won't accept it, who will not accept the bogus and baseless guilt that the Left tries to foist on everyone, and they COMPLETELY lose their minds.


Papadopoulos claims to know who the spy in the Trump campaign is. Any guesses?

My uneducated guess is that there was more than 1 spy in the Trump Campaign because I don't think the Left does it's deviousness half-arsed. My guess is that one of Reince Priebus's cohorts was also spying and leaking like a sieve, since so much of the leaking ceased once he exited the White House.


JamesD, you hit it on the head. If YOU oppose any of the SECULAR PROGRESSIVE FULL COMMIE SHIT STEW, you are going to be attacked physically and verbally by the cabal.
There is no rhyme nor reason to their HATE, it's all COMMIE all the TIME. The attempts to portray themselves as MORAL are laughable. Seriously for over a decade the PHELAN SHITSTAIN has persisted i hating everything that doesn't allow FULL CONTROL to the FULL COMMIE. Baby vivisection is okay, if it's for one more cog in the FULL COMMIE oeration. There is NOTHING MORAL about the FULL COMMIE. $15 MILLION DOLLAR RUSSIAN INFUSED MADE UP DOSSIERS which have the PRESIDENT GETTING PISSED ON by RUSSIAN PROSTITUTES is a-ok, with the ENTIRE LEFT/FULL COMMIE. Antifa, a gang of stench ridden misfits smashing, burning, pillaging and violently attack those who won't go the FULL COMMIE is a-ok. Accusing a very very good man of GANG RAPES is a-ok. Leaking documents, lying to Grand Juries, deleting e-mails, smashing devices that had info showing the lawlessness. Even the FUCKING FBI is involved.



good grief ...

Tom Steyer has spent $4 million alone in supporting Rouda against Rohrabacher and even more in some of the other vulnerable OC districts. I would assume Janz is another beneficiary as are many Dems around the country.

Steyer made his $ in Indonesian brown coal sales to China, which contributes mightily to our smog problems here in California.

He is trying to make offshore drilling off the So Cal coast the big issue when it is really a non-issue. The Left are duplicitous scumbags. The hypocrisy is positively National Socialist.

Southport's Fieldhouse is the 12th largest in the United States, and suits 7,100, excluding seats available on the gym floor.

My dad was working for the township school system when it was constructed. At that time there was only one high school in the township and we were a state basketball power. It is where I had my graduation ceremony as well as my grandkids.


We mailed in our Absentee Ballots today.

We always order them since I never know where I'll be a month in advance, but usually I can make it to an early Polling location like the Library to vote in person, but with my car dead and at the shop and the Blizzard ongoing and a trip coming up on Wednesday Momma dropped them in the mail box on her morning drive to start the Dog Walk.

Last week the local paper reported that already 3,500 Absentee Ballots had been received before our current Governor Walker dropped out of the race, but there would not be do-overs for anyone who voted for him since the Law said he was legally still on the Ballot so anyone who voted for him was SOL.

It'll be interesting to me to see that if Begich loses by a small amount like 1,000 votes, if some legal challenge will be pushed by the Dem's to try to allow those Absentee Walker Voters to re-Vote. Folks are pretty good at bending Election Law up here, since I recall how Lisa Murkowski was allowed to get the Law changed during her 2010 run as a Write-In Candidate. The law she had previously voted for as a State Politician mandated that the name on any Write-In Ballot had to spelled exactly correct or the Ballot would not count, and also that no person running as a Write In candidate could have their name posted in an Election location to aide the voter in spelling the name correctly. Both of those Laws were pencil whipped as invalid in the week prior to the 2010 Election by a Judge that Lisa's Dad, Frank Murkowski, had previously hand picked as Election Commissioner

Where's the Price or Pearce thread starter, TM? With a link to Eduardo Rodriguez playing New York, New York on his bluetooth boombox?

For the record, it clearly should have been Price. It's far more likely that Bosox would have won the series without Pearce than without Price.

I am that perhaps unusual breed who is a Bosox fan without being a Yankee hater (I know some say that's impossible), but Eduardo's takedown of Aaron Judge is classic.
