I wouldn't worry about it, it's baked into the cake.




Smells a little bit like 2001.....with just a hint of 2007/2008 added for seasoning!

“We’re starting to get a lot of résumés from [software engineers at] companies where the business model isn’t working and they can’t get funding, so they are closing down or cutting back,” said Mark Dinan, a software recruiter based in the Bay Area, who keeps track of companies’ hirings and firings.

Not a Lefty to be seen today. Get home from my visit with a needle from hell looking to take it out on one of "them",,, and nutt'n.. No opinion to shred.. At least someone is keeping the "jon's" memory alive. Sometimes it's a blast to whip that dead horse.

I hear the LIBS are getting ready for a town hall? I heard a GREAT definition of what that is today. " Recreational outrage". Just like that judge that ruled against the second travel ban.
It was "OK" when "O" did it. Trump dusted off the EO that "O" used and resubmitted the exact words. But since it was Trump, Nope,, no way.

Todd Juvinall

Oh it will be fun tomorrow.


Maybe our LIBS don't want to take the heat for the tolerance that was showed to Michael Savage on the streets of Frisco. And to assault his dog is an even bigger low.

Someone sent me a screen shot of Boardmans blog, that was remarkable because it proved that someone other than the dark lord of liberal laments land actually reads that blog. ;-)

Bill Tozer

Holy Smokes. I thought the Resist! Crowd was supposed to come over here every darn day and call Trump horrible names and by extension, call us names. But nooooo. They petered out after a few short months. They pledged, vowed, and solemnly sweared to fight the rope-a-dope every single day for the next 4 years. What a bunch of pussies.

Yo #NeverTrumpsters, a winner never quits and a quitter never wins. Losers you were and losers you be. Sucks to be you.

Todd Juvinall

Looks like the polls are not favoring Paul Emery and he has quieted down. And the new healthcare polls are looking good today too.

Kreeg Antwoord: [ coughing ] You see, it all started on August 20th, 1977, when NASA put up a recording of the sounds of Earth on Voyager I. A two-hour long tape included, uh, natural sounds of animals, a French poem by Gaugliere, a passage from the Koran in Arabic, messages from President Carter, United Nations Secretary Kurt Waldheim, music -- everything from classical to Chuck Berry.

Maxine Universe: Uh -- and you're saying that the, uh -- another civilization has found the tape?

Cocuwa: Yes. They've sent us a message that actually proves it. It may be just four simple words, but it is the FIRST positive proof that other intelligent beings inhabit the universe.

Maxine Universe: Uh -- what are the four words, Cocuwa?

Cocuwa: The four words that came to us from outer space -- the FOUR words that will appear on the cover of Time Magazine next week -- are: [ he holds up the magazine" "Send More Chuck Berry".


Of course not....there's no money in clean air!

Bill Tozer

You can't make this stuff up.


Bill Tozer

Norway is now the happiest country on earth. Denmark falls to second place.


In related news, Norway's crime rate falls!


Bill Tozer

Boy, Little Hampshire College (liberal arts) is making the news a lot lately. Whatever they are teaching the kids in Sociology classes nowadays must be the most unfun place on earth.


Oxford Reference defines cultural appropriation as the “taking over of creative or artistic forms, themes, or practices by one cultural group from another. It is in general used to describe Western appropriations of non‐Western or non‐white forms, and carries connotations of exploitation and dominance.”

As coaches broke up the fight, Figueroa attempted to punch at the Maine students and “was screaming swears and racial slurs,” according to court documents.

So, let's see if I got this right. The defendant demands that the visiting players from Maine remove their hair braids. When her demand is rebuffed, she screams "swears and racial slurs". Some people do not take 'no' for an answer gracefully. Control freaks are all that way.
So, help me out. Did the coed with the Hispanic name scream and hurl racial epithets because the visiting team was wearing black hairstyles? What kind of hair braids do Latina women wear? Can a Latina wear black hair braids, but others cannot? I am cornfused.
Guess I miss the days of saying "Hi bro, dig your fro." Maybe the Hampshire College student woke up wondering what to be offended by today.

Now the college has to come up with a way to defend their Latina student after she yelled racial slurs at others. Don't think more Sociology classes is the answer. :)

Paul Emery


Media outlets are reporting that there were 1500 in attendance at Saturdays forum. ARe you still sticking by your 600ish attendance?

Paul Emery

Tor your reading pleasure, today's poll updates:

The Trump crash in public approval continues. He is now negative in all major polls according to polling report and rcp polling. Down an astonishing 21 in Gallup.


Don Bessee

Don't know where you got 600ish. There were over 500 chairs and the rest was standing room only. The fire permit allowed 1000 people in that building configuration. Remember po' ol' PE, its just the Union after all. ;-)

Paul Emery

Don writes:

"Blah, blah, blah Cross. Anyone who listened live knows what happened. Ya right tilting, a couple of dozen people in a room configured for over a thousand, that's sure stacking the deck. There were over 500 chairs and the standing room was not even fully utilized. So democracy in action now = rude and insulting mixed with group think on the left. ;-)

Posted by: Don Bessee | 18 March 2017 at 05:16 PM"

Are you having memory problems Don?

Todd Juvinall

My guess was 1200. And as I said, the liberals were there as a organized effort as they are across the land. Good for them. But will it hold? We will see. And the left is not satisfied until they have every seat in California. That is fine but look at Venezuela for the results.

Regarding polls. Trump is President and like the polls prior to the election, he could care less about their results. As I don't.

Don Bessee

And where in that do you find '600ish'? Those two statements are almost exactly the same ya po' ol' pollhead PE. You were sitting in the front corner and couldn't even see the back of the room. The fire marshals never closed the doors so we never hit the permit limit. DUH! Reading and not comprehending again there po' ol' PE. ;-)

Todd Juvinall

That is funny that Paul Emery never talked to the Fire Marshall. Usually the lefty reporters are always saying how many Indivisible women were on the Mall in DC and how goofy Trump is for putting out his concerns about the numbers. So my guess is Paul emery is not happy with the turnout numbers.

Paul Emery

So we'll go with 1200 Todd as a reasonable estimate. You ok with that Don?

Don Bessee

You can go with whatever you want ya po' ol' pollhead. The fire permit is what it is and they never closed the doors. But you are an aficionado of fakenews so be my guest and perpetuate fakenews mr fakenewsman. ;-)


Posted by: Paul Emery | 20 March 2017 at 11:01 AM

Are you having memory problems Don?

It's possible.....I mean you yourself seem to suffer numerous "lapses"......like the specifics of the Muslim immigrant/refugee issue about which you spoke so sympathetically and powerfully over the weekend.

I could be wrong though......you may be working the problem diligently as this is typed instead of merely using these poor unfortunates as props in another progressive virtue signaling exercise!

Paul Emery

More on Polls

These numbers are before today's hearings into Russian involvement become news. There is no limit to Trumps slide in sight.

George Rebane

PaulE 1130am - The limit to "Trump's slide" is zero. And you have been telling one and all that Trump's rush to the bottom has been going on now from when? the election, swearing in, nomination, ...?? With what you report, what has kept him from hitting bottom a long time ago?

Todd Juvinall

No proof stated today either way Paul Emery. But you conspiracy lovers don't care. You will make it up. What a hoot!

George Rebane

BillT 535am - Good catch on the Norway crime rate story Mr Tozer. What simply passes my understanding is the social IQ of people like the quoted Norwegian professor who blames Norwegian women for inciting their own rapes because they have not conformed to the mores and values of the arriving Muslims and changed how they dress in their "new multi-cultural" environment. Can anyone suggest a better description than 'butt stupid' which definitely no longer serves in the present case?

Paul Emery


I post my polling data on his numbers when he took office in January. The polls refer to "job performance". The Gallup and all other polls can be easily tracked. Here's Gallup:


George Rebane

PaulE 1156am - So all this hyperventilating multiple times daily comes to Trump's approval having gone down from 55% to 45% during his time in office, with no mention from you that concurrently his approval has gone up from 39% to 45%. And that is it??! that is the horrendous plunge that you have been ballyhooing in these pages all these weeks??!! (months actually, since you started way before the inauguration).

Do you have any advice for how a reader of your gleeful denigrations would properly estimate Trump's current standing in the dis/approval poll? With no numbers, until now, I submit that a reasonable interpretation of your non-numerical reports would have one conclude that Trump's approval rating would now be around the 3% level. I don't know, maybe you journalists have a different take on how people interpret what you report.

Paul Emery

George you write "his approval has gone up from 39% to 45%." Where did you get this number? Not from Gallup which I linked, It never started at 55% George. It started at 45% the difference between approval and disapproval went from dead even to -16. Please explain where you got your numbers.


George Rebane

PaulE 1249pm - You're right Paul, I misread the order of the approval numbers. Both started at 45 with the approval dropping to 39 and the disapproval going up to 55. But my point still stands about the actual changes compared to your breathless reports of apparent catastrophic changes.

Bill Tozer

You just knew it would not be this easy.. I almost forgot we are dealing with the Alt-Left and their water boys.

This is all over the news especially in Europe. Way to go guys in reassuring our European allies.

"U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson plans to skip an April 5-6 meeting of NATO foreign ministers for a U.S. visit by the Chinese president and will travel to Russia later in the month, U.S. officials said on Monday, a step allies may see as putting Moscow's concerns ahead of theirs."


Paul Emery

We made the national news tonight with Rachael Maddow showing photos of the 1300 attending the LaMalfa town hall Saturday.

Don Bessee

Oh well if tax return maddow says so!

Our resident fakenewsman po' ol' PE either does not know or can't remember Tillersons travels since confirmation. Pathetic, really pathetic you po' ol' party line parrot PE. ;-)

Paul Emery

Just reporting what's in the News Don.

Don Bessee

Says the fakenewsman @ 1006. Committed to perpetuating fakenews so as to support the party parrot line is po' ol' PE. No thought or comprehension just party parrot squawking! ;-)

Paul Emery

So Don you're not a loyal Repub right?

Paul Emery

I didn't vote for Hillary Don. who did you vote for?

Paul Emery

Even Fox is bailing on Trumps supporters. This was the guy Trump threw under the train after using his quote. This guy (Trump) has no friends.

"Fox News pulled senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano off the air indefinitely following growing controversy over his dubious claim that Barack Obama used the British intelligence services to wiretap Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election, the LA Times reports.

Napolitano made the claim last Tuesday, in an interview with “Fox and Friends.”

Don Bessee

Since po' ol' party parrot PE is having a TRUDS eruption that clouds his recollection it was well over a month ago that SecState Tillerson visited NATO/Germany as his first official trip and then there was SecDef Mattis's trip. Oh well, facts never stop the party parrots bovine scatology. ;-)

Don Bessee

Oh that's sad, po' ol' pollhead PE is not up to his usual why, why, why standard. Just a why, why? 1044,50. ;-)

Paul Emery

Sorry Don. He didn't go to Europe for a NATO meeting last month. Here is the detais


Don Bessee

So the fakenewsman claims there were no discussions, side meetings, questions or statements related to NATO at the G20. Forget Mattis too? Sad. ;-)

Bill Tozer

Morning laughs. This day is starting out great.


Bill Tozer

No wonder Paul refused to vote for Hillary in 2016 or Obama in 2012. No one wants to continue those failed policies. I love this guy's quips:

My Visit to Trump’s Washington

MONDAY, MARCH 20, 2017

I spent much of this past week in Washington – talking with friends still in government, former colleagues, high-ranking Democrats, a few Republican pundits, and some members of Congress from both sides of the aisle. It was my first visit to our nation’s capital since Trump became president.

My verdict:

1. Washington is more divided, angry, bewildered, and fearful – than I’ve ever seen it.

Wonderful....good things already happening in the DC cesspool then.

2. The angry divisions aren’t just Democrats versus Republicans. Rancor is also exploding inside the Republican Party.

Omelettes and eggs little man......Omelettes and eggs!

3. Republicans (and their patrons in big business) no longer believe Trump will give them cover to do what they want to do. They’re becoming afraid Trump is genuinely nuts, and he’ll pull the party down with him.

Was going to happen anyway....might as well have fun with it!

4. Many Republicans are also angry at Paul Ryan, whose replacement bill for Obamacare is considered by almost everyone on Capitol Hill to be incredibly dumb.

Not going to pass it seems.....the dems will get to wear Odummy care for another couple of election cycles.

5. I didn’t talk with anyone inside the White House, but several who have had dealings with it called it a cesspool of intrigue and fear. Apparently everyone working there hates and distrusts everyone else.

This is funny from a guy who served in the Clinton administration

6. The Washington foreign policy establishment – both Republican and Democrat – is deeply worried about what’s happening to American foreign policy, and the worldwide perception of America being loony and rudderless. They think Trump is legitimizing far-right movements around the world.

Sad....seems like Paul Emery isn't the only frightened old man out there.

7. Long-time civil servants are getting ready to bail. If they’re close to retirement they’re already halfway out the door. Many in their 30s and 40s are in panic mode.

Really....you say this like it's a bad thing!

8. Republican pundits think Bannon is even more unhinged than Trump, seeking to destroy democracy as we’ve known it.

See item 6.

9. Despite all this, no one I talked with thought a Trump impeachment likely, at least not any time soon – unless there’s a smoking gun showing Trump’s involvement in Russia’s intrusion into the election.

Sorry Paul......still president!

10. Many people asked, bewilderedly, “how did this [Trump] happen?” When I suggest it had a lot to do with the 35-year-long decline of incomes of the bottom 60 percent; the growing sense, ever since the Wall Street bailout, that the game is rigged; and the utter failure of both Republicans and Democrats to reverse these trends – they gave me blank stares.

Funny that you expected anything else inside the imperial bubble.

....and as always.....stay tuned for more of the comedy stylings of little Bobby Reich!



Although the website is quite partisan, this was an interesting article about something I haven't followed that closely:


The fact that the Green Libertarians are carrying water for the people who build the Lubyankas and Abu Ghraibs of the world is an irony which is not lost on me.


So much for draining the swamp Lyin' Donny...

Civil Rights Division is a toilet within the greater toilet that is the Justice Department....maybe he's going to plunge it for the President.

Bill Tozer

Scenes @ 7:26 am

Great minds think alike.

I would have asked the Department heads since the NYT reported nine former and current White House "sources" as the ones who leaked information (Jan 13 and Jan 20, both dates which Obama/Lynch were still in office)....which former and current White House operatives have been submitted to lie detector tests?

Which members of the NIA, CIA, White House, and Justice Department of the 10-20 personnel mentioned that had access to the leaked Intel concerning the Flynn leaks and Presidential phone calls have been questioned? Which have been given lie detector tests, a routine and standard practice given to employees at the CIA and NSA? Which of the 10-20 humans that had access to the classified Intel have been interrogated?

Finally, I would have asked, "Are you, Mr. Comey and Admiral Rogers, the source of the leaks?"

So far we know of as today, only one CRIMINAL activity that has occured in this Russian-Trump Campaign investigation: leaked information, a serious felony. What Intel gathering methods were used since July, 2016 to used to investigate the Trump campaign's any and all contacts with the dirty Rooskies? Was wiretapping used? What exactly were the methods used to investigate Trump's campaign communications with Russian agents since July, 2016. Did this investigation start before or after the day HRC received her party's nomination? Before or after the day Obama endorsed Hillary for President?, lol.

I could go on and on. Tell you what. Gather all the 10-20 people who could be the leakers together in a room and give me 30 minutes and I will tell ya who the leaker(s) are. Easy. Now, I will end with a pic rather than go on and on.


Comey has saving the careers and reputations of more than one person yesterday.


re: Fish@8:12AM

While I'm generally against nepotism, and this certainly qualifies, I can see the point in this case.

When fighting the Deep State and not possessing a particularly integrated power base, who do you choose for close associates? Family and a few trusted staff members. Bobby Kennedy didn't become Attorney General because of his good looks. I doubt that the Conway appointment is a reward so much as inserting loyalty (and an ear) into the national security state.

In a world where the chief of the FBI is quite rich (and didn't receive unearned wealth the way that it typically comes, inheritance) and FBI officials' wives get really large sums of money for political campaigns, the fix is in in a thousand ways. Breaking the iron rice bowl results in a lot of enemies.

Bill Tozer

If anyone want to see how our elected politicians are devoid and ignorant of The Constitution, simply watch Di-Fi and the Dems grandstanding speeches/ statements at the SCOTUS hearings yesterday. All the things Wi-Fi mentioned (living document) were done by activist judges, not the Constitution. No, Diane, the Constitution did not bar women from voting or equal rights. The 14th and 5th and even the 4th Amendments works just fine and does not need a word to be changed.

Many cases that have been precedent and considered carved in stone (like Roe vs Wade) have been reviewed and some even overturned. Dread Scott comes to mind. Segregation was not the result of the Constitution, Ms. Di-Fi. It was the result of activist judges. Noticed she failed to mention FDR's interment camps and activist judges' decisions under Wilson. What an idiot. Talk about ignorance....


As a complete aside, I was just musing about how you'll see an organized character and intellectual assassination of David Gelernter if he gets the science advisor gig. The Green Libertarians don't take prisoners.
