Just so you know:

Today, in 1960, was the day TheFlintstones was first broadcast.

This was the first animated show ever to be broadcast in prime time.

And generation of kids watched it in reruns for DECADES.

Lack of communication

Didja ever notice that some folks (CoughLeftistsCough) hear what they *think* you said rather than what you actually said? And no matter how carefully you phrase something, they hear it through the filter of their preconceptions.

Even after you carefully repeat your statement, then carefully rephrase it?

How do you communicate with folks like that? When they cannot overcome their biases to actually hear what you said (or wrote).

(Yes, I am referring to CP and others)

And can’t we all say that about our jobs?

 “I’m really good at it, and I really like it. And it’s heartbreaking to me it doesn’t pay what I feel it should.” Read that again: It isn’t fair that I can’t get paid what I want for what I want to do…

My heart bleeds for her. We’d all like to make more money at what we do.

We all gotta make choices. Sometimes it means doing what we gotta rather than what we want to do as a career. If what we want to do doesn’t pay enough, the we gotta find something that does. One does not have to be an academic.

Like I said:

Puerto Rico’s issues are cause by Puerto Rico’s government.

Much like Hurricanes Katrina, the planning, response post hurricane and recovery was, to a large extent, helped or hindered  by the local and state government’s competence (or lack, in some cases) (compare the recovery of Louisiana to Mississippi ferinstance).

Puerto Rico’s government has, apparently no competetence.

The aid is there, the containers are piling up by the thousands, but there are no cleared roads to take it anywhere….and there is no plan as to where to take it. No one knows what is needed, or where, and no one has planned clearing of any routes to those locations that they haven’t planned, nor have they arranged any method of transportation to get it there.

The failures here are not those of George Bush Trump, but of (again) the liberal government officials. It ain’t like this is the first time a hurricane has hit the island. What damage will happen, and where, and how much aid and where (and how) to distribute it should be an easy plan to make, really.   


Especially ones with Trump Derangement Syndrome.

I find it sad.

And while the double standard is terrible, the worse part is that the books would have been an asset to the library, but were rejected for political reasons….and just plain spite. 

‘Cause (quite bluntly) they usually stay in the South Side of Chicago…..

“We don’t typically see incidents like this,” Smith said. “This would be very unusual for Six Flags.”

9 young outstanding citizens beat 12 year old boy and his parents at amusement park.

Wanna guess the melanin content of the parties involved?

 A gang of animals, really. Don’t know civilized behavior. Likely raised by Grandma. Prolly no Dad at all.

Yeah, again, I know, I’m a racist for pointing this out. Stopped caring what y’all call me a while back.

This sort of shit doesn’t happen in county fairs in rural Kansas or Indiana or Oklahoma or other Red cities though. Only at or near bigger cities. 

Still pushing it

The “Russian interference” Meme….Now with FaceBook.

And yet, Facebook itself has done much to influence elections….Unfairly, in my opinion. And we haven’t seen any disclosure as to who else bought ads for or against candidates in any of the races in 2016…

Does George Soros get to do ads for or against a candidate? If so, why are his ads different than the “Russian” ads? How about the socialist Michael Bloomberg? How abut all the ‘Pacs(s) that have poorly defined (if at all) funding sources?

Yes, free speech applies. They are American Citizens. I got that. But still, why are they OK and some vaguely “Russian” ads not? 


Border wall sections going up.

I think this is a Good Thing.

No more platitudes about “Border Security”. No more lies about “Committed to our nations security” or “Stop illegal immigration”. No more wasted money on high-Tech solutions that don’t really stop anyone.

I have, for years, said we either needed to get serious about our border or need to stop wasting money on border control and our Border Patrol
Look like Donnie is finally getting serious.

‘Bout time.


Socialist are growing in power:

What’s been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property. I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be. I think there’s a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in every kind of community, that they would like things to be planned in accordance to their needs. Unfortunately, what stands in the way of that is hundreds of years of history that have elevated property rights and wealth to the point that that’s the reality that calls the tune on a lot of development.

These are the words of the Mayor of New York City.

If he gets his way, the city will be broke again in 5 years, and people will be fleeing.

In 10 years, it will be like Caracas.
