I think some people in our little redneck town are just realizing their dreams are dashed.

Steve....did you make your own "Downfall" meme video?

fish 201pm - I think the only ones completely sanguine about the last eight years and this coming November are our neighbors who have totally absorbed the Socialism über Alles worldview and see it as America's inevitable fate.

The Great Dividet had lost all moral authority:

"Obama was saying that when small-town Pennsylvanians fall behind, they blame others and revert to their bibles, bigotries and guns.

Yet Obama has never explained what caused him to sit content for 20 years — and be married and have his daughters baptized — in the church of a ranting racist like Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who, at the time of 9/11, roared from his pulpit “God Damn America!”

What so attracted Barack Obama to Rev. Wright’s bigotry?

These latest emails confirm what we already knew.

Our elites, who are forever charging others with “racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia,” are steeped in their own bigotries — toward Southerners, conservatives, Middle Americans, Evangelical Christians, and traditionalist Catholics — the “irredeemables.”

Though the election is still a month off, the campaign of 2016 has already done irreparable damage to the American establishment.

Its roots in the nation it purports to lead have been attenuated if not severed. It has shown the world a portrait of American democracy at its apex that approaches the repellent.

Through the savagery of its attacks on those who have risen up against it, the establishment has stripped itself of all claim to be the moral leader of American society. Its moral authority is gone.

Even if Clinton wins, it can no longer credibly speak for America."



The WaPo has declared the election over, they agree with Paul E.

The USC/LA Times Daybreak poll has Trump breaking back out into the positive, about 1.1% over Clinton. Yes, they are outliers but they were an outlier four years ago when they were calling it for Obama over Romney... and got the margin right (or at least pretty damn close). Does that mean they're doing it right now? We won't know until the BBW sings.

538 is relying on polls that have Hillary up by 7%, a full 8% more than USC Daybreak gives her. Someone is wrong, and there is no way to tell for sure who it is before the polls close.

Gelernter is a true Renaissance Man... I once came close to joining a startup rewriting Un*x in Linda-C, a parallel processing paradigm proposed by Gelernter back in the 80's. Brilliant guy who fortunately survived the assassination attempt by the Unabomber but not without a maiming and as usual, I find much more to agree with than to dispute in his endorsement of Trump.



Now, even Democrats can see the ObamaCare death spiral



The LEFT is just as bad as the radical Muslims.

Hallucinations: hearing or seeing imaginary things
Delusions: wildly false beliefs
Paranoia: the fear that others are plotting against you

Quiz: Are these symptoms of schizophrenia or conservatism?

Self awareness isn't your strong suit is it JoKe?

fish 922am - what is most tragi-comic are the numerous liberal rebuttals to the critiques of Obamacare back in 2010 and 2011 in these pages. The progressives' bullshit flowed freely then; where is it now?

As near as I can tell George the flow hasn't abated at all. Looks like much of it has been redirected towards matters election related though!

George Boardman had a smackdown of the Republicans for opposing new taxes and fees on the ballot. Maybe we are tired of the wste and want some spending cuts? Anyway I wrote this on the Union site.

"Maybe people are tired of taxes? The first budget I dealt with in 1985 was 42 million dollars. The population was about 90,000. Today the busfget is over soo million and the population is about 99,000. So the population increased 10% and the budget 500%. Maybe it is time to reevalute?"

Back then I fought against all these fees and taxes but I was outnumbered. I had a few victories but the weight against stopping the government juggernaut is tough. One thing I always fought against was the building department and related departments charging a fee for the "service". I called it a fee for "regulation". Anyway, my position was if the government demands compliance and a permit the department should be funded by the general fund. It is a government monopoly yet the poor property owner has to pay the outrageous fees before a ditch is dug.

Re: addendum

We each have taken our own path, carried our own loads, yet have arrived at the same spot.



In the wake of The Great Divider......we are apparently going to be stuck with a post menopausal authoritarian with separation issues.....

And they say My Gal doesn't show warmth. She is so misunderstood.

It's not that she does not like commoners and underlings, it's that she is resentful that she has to even campaign in the first place. Why go through the motions when she is The Coronated One. It's her turn, duh. However, she will continue to show warmth to those at her appearances.... if the appearance are called fund raisers. 3-4 fund raisers to every controlled "public appearance" and those public appearances are too much for the poor thing. No money involved, no juices flowing. I understand completely. She needs her beauty sleep to rest up....unless there is a fund raiser on the schedule...she loves being loved. Showering her with money always brings out the best in her. What is wrong with that?? Don't we all want to be loved? You, Fish, just haven't seen her private side, yet.

Just be grateful you don't have to bring her ice packs for her head like Huma does and rub her neck and whisper softy sweet nothings in her ear. And more ice. Always a silver lining.

Wait til this hits tomorrow. Violation of WI election law at a minimum (releases two and three). Boy, Hillary has a dark heart. Release One ain't that bad..


Wait til you see the National Inquirer Wednesday. NI? Well, they did get the John Edwards story right. Wednesday is Debate Night I believe.

This is what happens when the big 3 newscasters fear reprecussions from the Justice Department. Can you say "banana republic"?

Ahhhh Bill.....rookie mistake...... I understand that you, a reasonable man, would misunderstand.....thinking that both philosophies, liberal and conservative would play by the same rules and be held to the same standards.

Remember, when the left engages in violence it's in the service of the lord and therefore a sanctified act.


Your Hillary related quote of the day....

"Clinton needs the help because she’s a terrible candidate, who in the primaries was able to beat an aging and unknown Vermont socialist only by cheating".


Remember though.....itz only teh evul corporayshuns that try and by favors from the guvermint.
