Marilyn's Diary

My Uncle Herman was really hip. I mean he was just groovy. He loved to do all the things that young college kids loved to do in the 1960's.

He played guitar. Smoked pot. Grew out his hair. Especially the hair in his ears. And most of all he loved to dance.

If you didn't know that he was a seven foot tall green skinned monster you would think he was a Negro. He could do the Twist. The Stroll. The Mashed Potato. The Watusi.

Every night I would set up my victrola and we would play records and dance and dance and dance.

But there was one dance that I loved to do with my Uncle Herman.

The Horizontal Mambo.

Wild, Wild Life!

Marlon Perkins had become obsessed. He was a full time zoophiliac. Of course he dabbled in many species but he kept coming back to the apes. He had a long time live in relationship with a young chimpanzee named Bubbles. He lived with Bubbles and his wife for many years.

Finally he decided he had to be true to himself. Marlin divorced his wife in Mexico and arranged to marry Bubbles. Unfortunately Bubbles was male and gay marriage was not yet legal. So he had to settle for common law status.

Marlin's actions lead to the cancellation of Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom. Marlin tried to market a series based on his life with Bubbles called "I Married  a Monkey" but it was too far ahead of it's time.

It was later produced as "Good Times" starring Esther Rolle.

"3 American friends tackle and hogtie gunman aboard European train"

"French President François Hollande plans to meet three Americans who foiled a suspected terrorist attack on a packed high-speed train running from Amsterdam to Paris."
Friday’s dramatic incident — in which a heavily armed man emerged from a train bathroom with an automatic rifle and started shooting — was being investigated by French counterterrorism authorities. Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel described the incident as a terrorist attack.
The three men were friends from middle school and two of them were members of the armed services, according to their family members.

Hillary Clinton can't keep up with Deez Nuts

8th Planned Parenthood sting video released.

The video is brief, just two minutes, it shows StemExpress CEO admitting Planned Parenthood sells fully intact aborted babies. It is a teaser video, a preview to a longer one intended for immediate release.

This site, Life News has a good recap of events, a good read this morning that includes names so I could take my time and have a window open and see who they are talking about, what they look like. Surely they are monsters, with horns and discoloration, warts, and serious psoriasis I expect, but no, they're all normal women, most we've seen, most actually attractive. They're intelligent too. They're doctors. The sort of women you'd like to talk to otherwise.

I'm fascinated with them looking so normal.

I linger with the photographs, project into them briefly and become part of the scene and feel what it's like.

I ask them sincerely as if they're my lab partner, looking right them "How can you do all this?" And I feel ill. Being that close.

I'm punking myself again.

Just thinking it, just imagining being so near as engagement with someone so far from grace makes me physically ill. As if speaking with evil refined. I'm this fainting couch pussy while they've become MDs in carnage leaving a wake of destruction complete as the Crystalline Entity, and politically fierce besides with their grubby mitts on tax funding as part of their circular support system that keeps everyone, baby-messing doctors, democrat politicians, media stair climbers all fat and happy with money and with mutual recognition for admirably good work rewarded with something so banal as applause and a plaque with both party's names on it, another trophy for participating in their circular profitable enterprise.

Why be ill about it though?

Well, ill because they're discussing their business as students in junior science class opening a live frog and doing that same thing as we did as students. Nearly did. Equating fetus to frog is ill-inducing.

There were girls doing that too back then, friends, so still, why?

I thought back following that thread of dread so real you can feel it about dissecting frogs in open livid vivisection splayed and pinned in a tray of wax with its organs still functioning, that was the point, the fascination of seeing things working. The new school I was at let us off easy, a student could abjure on grounds of being a pussy about cutting open frogs so I missed some important lessons. I guess.

Thinking further I'm half as young as that and placed in a field on another continent that is next to a cluster of small houses packed together, the only open area around, the opposite direction from the base. It's hot and dirty and nothing but weeds and a packed dirt bicycle path, a tower on the side near the houses with their individual walled yards and on the far side a copse of bamboo that had my intense interest. I'm with my older brother and somehow he discovered the joy of firecrackers. To his excitement, not mine, they're legal at this new place. Barry had a variety of fireworks to experiment. I have no idea how he got his hands on them, where he got them, on base or off base, how much they cost, what kind of money he used, who hooked him up, who translated, how he knew about them, how the transaction went, nothing. It's one of the things that made him completely mysterious to me and so full of surprises. He kept pulling that sort of thing. I could not have thought of such a thing as fireworks on my own. So instead of exploring the bamboo that afternoon is devoted to learning about fireworks. Apparently they'll play a big part in our new life in this new place.  I have no interest in them. There is only one kind that I like. Little colorful exploding spit wads that fired on impact. You threw them on something hard and they exploded. Tiny papier mâché squibs. That's all. 100 to a package. Later, they got me in trouble in connection with a slingshot so those were given up too.

This afternoon was devoted to regular exploding fireworks. It was Barry's idea to stuff one inside the mouth of a frog and light it. He lit the firecracker. It exploded. Killed the frog to bits. Both of us felt like shit. Immediately. Like a bucket challenge of ice cold guilt drenched both of us immediately. Both of us knew immediately NEVER do that again. Most profoundly. Most immediately. Neither of us spoke of the incident. I suppose, before that moment we didn't care about frogs or think of them any differently from anything else that grows automatically like weeds, but after we killed that frog that way for no reason except curiosity the feeling of remorse was too crushing to bear we hadn't words even to talk about it. Not ever. And he's an upright eagle scout type guy, I'm not. Since I feel this way I can imagine how he feels. He's supposed to be my role model. And we're turning out to be little shits blowing up creatures in other peoples' country.

Who would have thought that absurd boyhood lesson would become cellularly encoded?

I understand now. The female doctors on these Center for Medical Progress sting videos never had much of a boyish interest in firecrackers nor any nefarious boyish interest in blowing up frogs. Missed that whole thing. Boys are so terrible, always blowing things up and killing harmless innocent creatures. Good thing these doctors weren't boys.

All that from staring at photos of abortion doctors that look like regular people.

The article at Life News lists the states that have taken action already up to this point. It lists states that cut off funding, states that initiated investigations, and conversely, states that legislated immediate support for Planned Parenthood. All those states listed and Colorado is not among them.

They saved it for last. Doug Lamborn a Colorado representative introduced legislation to  halt funding for abortions. Guess his party.

The exchange is interesting. Lamborn wants direct state funding to stop immediately but also wants state money for state research to stop. He wants the State universities to formulate policy stating they will not use any human fetal material in research.

The president of the university replied they will do their best and they will try to limit using human fetal cells as much as possible.

Readers see two obvious wiggle-room outs. Total wishy-washy meaningless jibberjabber filler-words. Bluster. Readers see in the response no intention of doing anything at all.

Lamborn replied that isn't good enough.

CSU responded and said that they can limit the university’s use of fetal tissue. Additionally, Franks said that they will “seek alternatives to aborted fetal tissue sources” and ask vendors for “all available information regarding the source of fetal tissue.” He said, “With this information, our institution and researchers can continue to assure that when research is conducted, we do so meeting our ethical standards.” 
However, Rep. Lamborn argues that CSU’s response isn’t sufficient.

"Romanian city offers free rides to people reading on the bus"

"The initiative, which ran for a week in June, was proposed by Victor Miron, a book-lover and resident of Cluj-Napoca in north-western Romania."
Miron said that he wanted to “encourage more people to read on public transportation”.
He proposed his idea to the city’s mayor, Emil Boc, who then posted it to his followers on Facebook.
The idea received such an overwhelmingly warm response that a year later it was put into action.
“I believe that it’s better to promote reading by rewarding those who read, instead of criticising the ones who don’t,” said Miron on arts website Bored Panda this week.

A Piece of Cake

Pop-up book by David Pelham.

Let's look at this book so you'll know how to appreciate it when you're reading it to your grandkids and they're sticking their little fingers into it exploring its details. Your impulse will be to say, "Don't touch," but they must.

The cover of the book is annoyingly and expensively in the shape of a slice of cake. This was important to the author, Pelham knows the novelty of the book's shape is important to children, but it is disliked by everyone else. It added ridiculously to cost of production. I'm assuming. It's a mess on the bookshelf and must be set aside by itself. I removed the offending cardboard panel that forms the puffed up shape and by doing destroyed the cover of my copy but at least it behaves like a book and it fits on a shelf properly with no further special attention. Had I known back then that the price for used copies would be so high now I would have rethought that decision. Presently lowest is $21.00 + shipping and I doubt I paid nearly that much. Abebooks has one lower presently. I should buy it just to pass to these two little kids who live here. 

Bought it. Now I'll have two copies. One in the shape of a cake to give away. They'll love it. I don't even know them, hardly see them around, very quiet, but I know that they're going to love this little book. Now I can't wait. I already have planned how through 3rd party the little book can be given without causing any alarm.

Other than its unfortunate cover it is a tight little book. Most mechanisms are simple and one per page but a lot of action is packed into each one. Each little thing is loaded with mouse-art. Individual mouse characters in costume within the pod of little mice are established early and maintain throughout. The story is simple A to B and told in simple clips one to the next. Children will realize early what is happening to the group of mice and see for themselves what the mice do not see; the cake diminishing on its way to the party. Gripping drama right there for kids. Children paying attention will know that no cake will be left. 

The opening page we see right off the subject will be a dessert plate of cake of interest to mice in their bedclothes. 

The first page of story action a postman-mouse delivers a letter. The text is ballad in iambic lines that rhyme telling a story about a mice adventure of carrying a slice of cake across a harrowing landscape fraught with dangers to attend an important family birthday party at a nearby farm, a great distance for mice. Not much is going on the page, when you open the door yourself the whole group of mice pour out. The postal letter is a big deal for mice.

They're mice. Too young. Can't read. The postman-mouse reads the letter to them.

"Why certainly," the Postmouse smiled;
"Now let me see… ah yes…
From four till eight, and don't be late.
Please come in fancy dress."

This clever page of the human party in action is for adult enjoyment. It shows a woman slumped into a chair with her legs crossed carelessly, it's been a hard party, she can't take the sugar and she slides the plate under the chair while her other arm lifts a drink to her mouth, her face flips with the cup now in front of her face as if hiding her face conceals the act of ditching the cake.  This is how the mice get the cake. It was put there on the floor by a woman who just doesn't care about proper uneaten cake plate placement.

The mice take the cake off the plate, have a few bites, and slip past the cat and through the cat flap. 

In the dark woods the housemouse kids encounter woodsmouse who offers personal guidance through the woods and the night. At dawn  on the next page the woodsmouse hacks off a piece of cake as payment for his services.

The housemouse children notice an advertisement and take up at a bed and breakfast. The B&B served them their own cake for breakfast. Refreshed, they hit the road and notice their load is lighter. The group encounters a fieldmouse that offers to show them the way. She guides them through her field and then sits down and asks them, now, "what's for tea?"  She has bug juice for their picnic and suggests the mice contribute cake. The video does not show the wooden gate open. Too bad. Little fingers would reach in to flip the gate, to see, but this book reviewer is not interested, he flips right past, had he shown then we'd  see the front detail of all the mice characters and there is a lot of detail in their "fancy clothes," it shows another mouse turning with the gate as a hinge itself, and it shows the deep focus of the picnic bug juice tea party in the background, an before/after, climb the gate, then the party, both shown at once. double page, but the reviewer does not show this eloquent touch of non-pop-uppery. 

The housemice meet the Churchmouse vicar.

This tiny book is British as hell without even trying; different specific types of mice identified by location, house, field, church, cat flap, bug juice for tea, vicar. Where you expect the churchmouse to take his tithe of the cake instead the vicar absolves the housemice of guilt and comforts them in their slow realization their cake is already gone. He is sure the Lord will provide for He works in mysterious ways. 

The last pop-up page is largest double page denouement with cast collected and with new characters and  deus ex machina grandmum mouse upon the scene with heavenly solution of a fully prepared cheesecake that takes center stage. Whoever would have thought of that, a cake made of cheese? 

The economy in the pop-ups with its loaded art content is impressive. I would like to tell a tight story like this to my nephews in this form. For such a tiny small-person's book it sure packs a lot into it. This last page has an element I've not seen anywhere else, a bit of origami, a small V pillar mechanism folded in half and doubled to form the body of a mouse in a clown suit bent at the waist that looks for all the world like it is sitting on the edge in the crack between pages and hangs its legs over the edge toward the viewer. That little mouse origami could be inserted similarly into nearly any correspondence to very good effect. 

Reuters fact checks Hillary email claims

"This sort of information, which the department says Clinton both sent and received in her emails, is the only kind that must be "presumed" classified, in part to protect national security and the integrity of diplomatic interactions, according to U.S. regulations examined by Reuters."
"It's born classified," said J. William Leonard, a former director of the U.S. government's Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO). Leonard was director of ISOO, part of the White House's National Archives and Records Administration, from 2002 until 2008, and worked for both the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations.
"If a foreign minister just told the secretary of state something in confidence, by U.S. rules that is classified at the moment it's in U.S. channels and U.S. possession," he said in a telephone interview, adding that for the State Department to say otherwise was "blowing smoke."...
Clinton and her senior staff routinely sent foreign government information among themselves on unsecured networks several times a month, if the State Department's markings are correct. Within the 30 email threads reviewed by Reuters, Clinton herself sent at least 17 emails that contained this sort of information. In at least one case it was to a friend, Sidney Blumenthal, not in government...
In an email from November 2009, the principal private secretary to David Miliband, then the British foreign secretary, indicates that he is passing on information about Afghanistan from his boss in confidence. He writes to Huma Abedin, Clinton's most senior aide, that Miliband "very much wants the Secretary (only) to see this note."
Nearly five pages of entirely redacted information follow. Abedin forwarded it on to Clinton's private email account. (read the whole article)

Jindal's Planned Parenthood Jujitsu

That is using the strength of an opponent against them. Jon Gabriel at ricochet explains the power that media has is controlling the framework, the narrative, their ability to drive the discussion, Jindal uses their power against them and he isn't even there. He's out of town at the time.

Instead of shutting up and crawling under a rock to hide from the burning rays of daylight, with their steady reliable conveyor of human fetus parts threatened Planned Parenthood instead goes on the offensive. They have a protest planned around the Louisiana governor's mansion in Baton Rough, their legal right of course, and what an idea; they'll have footage of mean ol' Republican denying women's access to healthcare, mammograms, cancer screenings and the few odd lady health exam type things they claim to still do as if revoking their tax status would change the overall picture. It won't. It will for them, and it will for Democrat kickback receivers, but not for anybody else. It is this company's kickback scheme for Democrat support and as we see in state houses like Sacramento just yesterday and as we see with awards Planned Parenthood hands out last night to eager media as well. Kickbacks in support in cash for campaigns and with prestigious Maggie plaques named after America's premier eugenist.

Jindal will have the Center for Medical Progress sting videos playing large screen in the background for the protestors to take in by osmosis. Between chanting, I suppose. Everybody knows protestors don't listen. They are clever though, they should be able to find an angle here and there to shoot their own Mean Republican footage without being messed up by the Center's sting video showing the horrors straight up of the things that they are there chanting in protest for. Good one, Jindal. Planned Parenthood dismissed Jindal's counterpunch as a stunt. It is. And a good one too. Much better than Planned Parenthood's march with signs carrying their absurd lie about women's access to healthcare. They must associate themselves visibly with ghouls. I'll venture a very few of them will have some kind of problem facing up.

The sting video display set up will have to be large and encompassing and it will have to be loud or it will be ignored just as the many city trucks are ignored, the ones that always show up at all political protests with large billboard graphic on their sides depicting this same activity. They're seen as annoyance because, frankly, nobody wants to see anything like that in public. The protestors are used to ignoring them. But not in video form. And not this bad. And now it is the center of focus. And that was then as yet, and this is now.

Governor Jindal’s office will ensure that anyone who shows up will have to witness first-hand the offensive actions of the organization they are supporting.  
We hope the protesters will take a minute to watch them so they’ll have an opportunity to see first-hand our concerns with Planned Parenthood’s practices.


"Court: Leaving Baby in Car for 10 Minutes May Not Be Abuse"

"Reversing a lower court, New Jersey Supreme Court ruled that the state couldn’t add her name to a child-abuse registry without evaluating the “totality of the circumstances” at an evidentiary hearing. The 7-0 opinion also said a charge of neglect had to be backed up with a finding that the parent’s conduct put her child in “imminent risk of harm.”"

Reports the Associated Press:
According to court documents, the woman, identified by the initials E.D.O., left her sleeping daughter in a locked car with the engine running and the windows slightly opened while she shopped in a South Plainfield store for about five or 10 minutes in May 2009. 
The temperature at the time was about 55 degrees, according to court documents. A security guard noticed the child in the car and called police.
The Division of Child Protection and Permanency filed a complaint against the woman and her husband seeking care and supervision of their four children.
The woman appealed, but her request for a hearing in front of an administrative law judge ultimately was denied and the appeals court upheld that determination.
"The court also said it was troubled by how much time it’s taken to resolve the case."

"Mexico denounces Trump immigration plan as racist"

We continue to stand by our position that these comments reflect prejudice, racism or plain ignorance,” Mexico’s foreign ministry said in a statement... “Anyone who understands the depth of the U.S.-Mexico relationship realizes that those proposals are not only prejudiced and absurd, but would be detrimental to the well-being of both societies."
Trump released a policy outline detailing his “three core principles” for immigration reform last weekend.
It emphasized securing America’s borders, increasing enforcement of immigration laws and putting the needs of current U.S. citizens first.
“We are the only country in the world whose immigration system puts the needs of other nations ahead of our own,” Trump said in a statement on his website.
“Real immigration reform puts the needs of the working people first – not wealthy globetrotting donors,” he added. “That must change."
By the way, Mexico's own immigration policy is not as generous as the United States. Cries of "racism" and favoritism to the American working and unemployed middle class could backfire. Every time Trump is criticized his numbers mysteriously go up.

"Federal tax lien against illegal alien..."

"...Jose Antonio Vargas challenges his argument for immigration reform."
Journalist Jose Antonio Vargas rose to prominence after he outed himself as an undocumented alien in a New York Times essay in 2011.
Since that time Vargas has become the most well known illegal immigrant in the country and an outspoken advocate for immigration reform, relying heavily on claims that undocumented aliens will be model citizens and could add substantially to the federal tax base. He repeatedly asserts that many undocumented aliens, like him, already pay into a system they cannot use.
But Vargas himself hasn’t always lived up to that claim.
According to court documents obtained by Red Alert Politics, Vargas was hit with a $41,945.44 tax lien in a court notice on Jan. 7, 2015 for failing to pay taxes in 2010. According to the notice, the date of the assessment was Sept. 23, 2013. (read more)

On Language

"Presidential candidate ‘Deez Nuts’ actually a 15-year-old Iowan"

"The candidate called Deez Nuts — who has filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to run for president — is actually a 15-year-old from Iowa named Brady Olson, according to theDaily Beast."
Deez Nuts became a social media phenomenon after a Public Policy Polling poll of North Carolina released Wednesday showed that in a race with Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton and Republican leader Donald Trump, Deez Nuts would garner nine percent support.
The poll also found that six percent of North Carolina voters had a favorable opinion of Deez Nuts, with 13 percent unfavorable and 81 percent not sure.
Can't say they dont have a sense of humor in North Carolina.

Trump to Lex Luthor

A simple shave would do it. An eyebrow trim and darkening would complete the transformation. An additional tightly maintained goatee severely trimmed to shadow surpasses the stylish control of Superman's arch villain. Imagine; a whole world of fresh direct straightforwardness opened once risible pretense is abandoned.

Seventh Planned Parenthood sting video released

Sons of Liberty Media describes the video content in livid detail. The YouTube video is embedded at the link.

I hoped someone else would post about this because I cannot even talk about it. The video shows horror that is real and unspeakable. Literally unspeakable. I don't want to say the words, my body resists typing it. My mouth won't cooperate to verbalize it. I know reporting should not be personal but blogs are personal and this video fits with something else similar that happened a long time ago when we were still teens.

It was the weirdest thing, small incident, but weird.

I and my brother had our own bedrooms so his stuff was none of my business. He had a lot of neat things in there. I liked his books. His headboard was a bookcase. There was a paperback copy of Helter Skelter, I had already read it and seeing the book there in our house gave me the shivers. His book, his room, none of my business but that evil was in our house. I felt like Cotton Mather but I had to have that book out. I never told anyone this. We had a respect for books inculcated, to throw away a book was bad enough for me and to stealthily nick my brother's possession doubled the weirdness, put the book in the trash, wrap up the trash and take it to the bin, take the bin to the curb, supervise the bin removal, make sure the book is gone, but I felt strongly the book had to go.

Does that make me a religious freak? The vibes were all wrong. All. Wrong.

And now the same thing is happening. I cannot touch this with a hundred foot pole. It would change me too much. I know what is on this video. I've gone with the descriptions as far as I could imagining it all X a million,  I've already seen it in my mind and if I see it for real it will change me permanently and I'm not so sure that I am ready for that. I'm rotten enough as it is. Watching that video would be the spider sting that imparts  superpower of cynicism and rottenness. I don't want that.

Planned Parenthood believes it can stem the tide by passing out awards in the name of Margaret Sanger to compliant media that helps them suppress the importance of these videos and abets them, payback of a sort, recognition for keeping quiet about PP's scheme involving taxpayer funding and illegal sales. Never mentioning murder, nor, as the videos show, real torture and with real criminal intent. The enormity in method, intent, and numbers makes Helter Skelter look like beer and Skittles.

"UN to let Iran inspect alleged nuke work site"

"Iran will be allowed to use its own inspectors to investigate a site it has been accused of using to develop nuclear arms, operating under a secret agreement with the U.N. agency that normally carries out such work, according to a document seen by The Associated Press."
The newly disclosed side agreement, for an investigation of the Parchin nuclear site by the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency, is linked to persistent allegations that Iran has worked on atomic weapons. That investigation is part of the overarching nuclear-limits deal.
Evidence of the inspections concession is sure to increase pressure from U.S. congressional opponents before a Senate vote of disapproval on the overall agreement in early September. If the resolution passes and President Barack Obama vetoes it, opponents would need a two-thirds majority to override it. Even Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, has suggested opponents will likely lose a veto fight, though that was before Wednesday's disclosure.
McConnell was ready cave before he had all the information. And people wonder how is Trump doing so well.

Shaun King

Accusations of race-fakery of the highest order. Again.

Black Lives Matter organizer, Shaun King, is accused of pretending to be bi-racial. That explains earlier tweets, "Half of Shaun King is white and the other half is also white."

An investigative blogger, Vicki Pate, turned up documents and made the accusation about King who writes for the Daily Kos and is a high profile campaigner against police brutality having appeared on Oprah Winfrey disguised incogcasian as biracial in order to qualify for Oprah scholarship to Morehouse College.
His biography attracted the attention of bloggers due to inconsistencies in his public claims about basic things such as how many children he has. Inconsistencies range from insignificant number of back surgeries he reports here and there to more serious discrepancies about racially motivated beatings that do not agree with police reports. King told stories of hate crimes on his blog and in his book that his critics say King wrote to bolster his credibility. King tells his listeners and his readers that he was attacked by up to a dozen red-neck racists students while police record show an altercation with one other person. (It was a dozen attackers in his mind.)

The Daily Kos ran its own piece about its own writer, "Is there something fishy about Shaun King?" The article refers back to the Daily Caller, a right side publication, then delves further into details too uncomfortable to overlook even for Kos, too many different publications for a regular smear campaign, too many white people in Shaun King's tree, his documents are lousy with caucasians and with no negroes to be seen among them and Shaun won't come clean without prodding.

The article on Breitbart has a lot more and several good photos.

Well. Could have fooled me. It doesn't matter to me except for the injustice of a white person taking advantage of carveouts intended for blacks. But those carveouts are not part of my world, not part of my concerns anyway. I don't like it, but there they are. To me, they are unreal. Although they mean everything to a young person struggling to find a way to finance their education, no matter their race, that whole university chase becomes more bogus each week. This reward system begins tinged of racial distortion; blacks require a special hand up and that invites even more racial distortion. To address a situation already distorted; the unreasonable cost of education. But none of that has aught to do directly with me. Yet it does. Because it is an important distortion beyond mere interest to observe and like Hillary's distortions the edges of the construct are eroding from without, seen as attacks, as faith in the construct holding it together erodes within and that is true for all the false constructs involved in the mess including the grossly inflated cost of education, the means to pay it by government loans and the racial breakdown for scholarships addressing out-of-synch enrollment numbers. As continuously pointed out we always get more of what we dump money into, so we have what we paid for. Money is dumped into racial distortion. It's not a surprise this race-fakery happens, this is what is paid for, and it would be nothing were Shawn King not so publicly successful. 

Hillary says "I didn't wipe it."

"In fact I don't even sit down. Not like Jeb Bush!"

Marilyn's Diary

I miss my Uncle Herman. We used to hang out all the time. It was the early sixties so the family would all sit around together around the big TV with the wooden console. We would all argue about what to watch. We had to agree because it is not like today where everyone has a TV in their room. There was just one so we all had to watch it together.

Now Grandpa always wanted to watch Lawrence Welk because he said he was the closest thing you could find to a vampire on TV. Aunt Lily loved variety shows. She was a succubus and most of those shows sucked big time. My pervert Cousin Eddie always wanted to watch Petticoat Junction and Hee Haw and any show with girls with big jugs and hay. 

But Uncle Herman and I almost always carried the day. Because we both loved Westerns. So there was always one that somebody else would vote for and we could get to see. Aunt Lily loved Steve McQueen and Clint Eastwood so we always got to see "Wanted Dead of Alive" and "Rawhide." Grandpa loved "The Rifleman" because he was a big Chuck Conner's fan. He had a couple of private movies that Chuck starred in before he got famous. Cousin Eddie loved "Gunsmoke" because he sort of looked like Doc. But Uncle Herman loved them all.

He even dressed up in his cowboy outfit. He had the boots and the hat and kerchief. He would dress up in them while we watched the show. Then late at night he would sneak into my room.

He would ride me all night.

Joan or Betty?

"What am I doing here Joan?"
"We are part of a contest Betty. Sort of a poll. Who do the perverts who post here like best. The icy blond or the luscious red head."
"What kind of contest is that?"
"I don't know but it is better than this election bullshit. Plus it is no contest. Who would pick you?"
"Shut up bitch or I will snatch that fake hair off of your fat head."
"Yeah right. I would love to see that!"

Something for everybody!

Famous white Hispanic George Zimmerman has scored the elusive triple play.

He is auctioning off a painting of the Confederate Flag he made to benefit a gun store that refuses to sell guns to Muslims.

As reported in the New York Post the proceeds will be split between Zimmerman and the gun store owner with a small percentage going to the Boys and Girls Club.

Sign commemorating one year anniversary of Michael Brown's death

That's different.

People were already going nuts about Michael Brown and that got on the nerves of welding shop owner in Farmer City who put up this sign, and that speaking out enraged people further.
... all these people in Ferguson going crazy over a guy that broke the law three times that day, tried to kill a cop, tried to get his gun, it’s crazy, 
What they’re doing to cops makes me sick.” 
The mayor of Farmer City thinks the sign reflected poorly on the whole town.

Infuriating because it seems a glib reaction to something a lot of people take existentially seriously, but it is not glib. It is a serious response, a peep from a person with a lot to say on the matter and who knows that rioters and slogan chanters and race-baiters don't listen. Have a sign then instead of discourse, in your face as you do, and know other people think differently and do not accept the premises less so the conclusions of this movement, so have yet another thing to carry on rioting about while knowing others think differently. He took the sign down on his own accord when it garnered the attention that satisfied him, when he felt the sign achieved its intended psychologic affect, two days. That's all. Two days of this sign against a year of aggressive cross country rioting. 

The comments there at Biz Pac Review are interesting too. Interesting for its conservative to conservative to Christian crossed discussion. Interesting how they manage civility.

"Weird things start to happen when you stare into someone's eyes for 10 minutes"

"A psychologist based in Italy says he has found a simple way to induce in healthy people an altered state of consciousness – simply get two individuals to look into each other's eyes for 10 minutes while they are sitting in a dimly lit room. The sensations that ensue resemble mild "dissociation" – a rather vague psychological term for when people lose their normal connection with reality. It can include feeling like the world is unreal, memory loss and odd perceptual experiences, such as seeing the world in black and white."

"Giovanni Caputo recruited 20 young adults (15 women) to form pairs. Each pair sat in chairs opposite each other, one metre apart, in a large, dimly lit room. Specifically, the lighting level was 0.8 lx, which Caputo says "allowed detailed perception of the fine face traits but attenuated colour perception." The participants' task was simply to stare into each other's eyes for 10 minutes, all the while maintaining a neutral facial expression. A control group of a further 20 participants also sat in a dimly lit room in pairs, but their chairs faced the wall and they stared at the wall. Beforehand both groups were told that the study was going to involve a "meditative experience with eyes open."" (read the whole thing)

"Hillary's email firm was run from a loft apartment"

"...with its servers in the BATHROOM, raising new questions over security of sensitive messages she held."
Daily Mail Online tracked down ex-employees of Platte River Networks in Denver, Colorado, who revealed the outfit's strong links to the Democratic Party but expressed shock that the 2016 presidential candidate chose the small private company for such a sensitive job.
One, Tera Dadiotis, called it 'a mom and pop shop' which was an excellent place to work, but hardly seemed likely to be used to secure state secrets. And Tom Welch, who helped found the company, confirmed the servers were in a bathroom closet.
Speaking to Daily Mail Online at her home in Castle Rock, Colorado, Tera said: 'I think it's really bizarre, I don't know how that relationship evolved.
'At the time I worked for them they wouldn't have been equipped to work for Hilary Clinton because I don't think they had the resources, they were based out of a loft, so [it was] not very high security, we didn't even have an alarm.

"History shows a strong El Niño may mean huge snow for D.C. this winter or almost none"

All or Nothing at all.
We keep getting the question, what does the strong El Niño mean for Washington, D.C. this winter?
During the five strongest El Niños since 1950, winters either featured among the most paralyzing snowstorms in Washington, D.C.’s history or hardly any snow at all.
Why such variation? El Niños tend to have two primary effects on U.S. weather which play out in complicated ways over the Mid-Atlantic: 1) They push the average position of polar jet stream north, which favors warmer than normal air over the region 2) They intensify the moisture supply along the southern jet stream, increasing the potential storminess.

Point of View Gun, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

This is a clip from the movie. 

The writing is annoying glib. That must be accepted to get at the gems throughout. The glibness strings together the gems. (glib: two men shot out of vacuum hatch into the void of space, chances of survival calculated to be grim, rescued by passing ship, annoying. It wretches glibly from one vignette to another)  This scene that describes the Point of View Gun is such a gem. It seems to me British style liberal fantasy of a gun that aggresses the shooter's POV, to violently penetrate a victim with one's own perspective, to force one's feelings combatively. An empathy gun. It's easy to miss at first they're speaking Britainlandia-talk and it goes quickly, but the narrator explains what happens. Like all British handling firearms the character accidentally shoots it, they must, they're British, the moment they touch a gun, the fist moment, it fires and hits somebody, and that's not even part of the glibness. That's innate to British psyche. When the woman gets hold of the gun then things get really dangerous. Another trope there.  Here, the writer describes women as walking emotional basket cases. She shoots the guy right off who she want's to have know (about herself). She keeps shooting to get deeper insights into herself through his expressions of her emotions as if experiencing therapy, not just pleased to have the guy know but to also learn for herself (about herself). Pow - pow for double-depth insight at the end cracks me up for its indifference to the pain of being shot.  

"Scurvy: Horrific as It Was Deadly for Sailors"

Via Instapundit...
A ship's chaplain in the 1740s wrote of sailors' gums that would grow out of control until they protruded from the mouth and rotted away, leaving a horrific case of bad breath, the BBC reports. So it turns out that not only was scurvy once incredibly dangerous, it was also super gross. Real Clear Science reports that approximately 2 million sailors died from scurvy, which is caused by a lack of vitamin C, between 1500 and 1800. During his voyage across the Pacific, Magellan lost 80% of his crew to the disease called "the plague of the sea," according to the BBC. One historian says scurvy killed more sailors than battle, storms, shipwrecks, and other diseases combined. And, it wasn't a pleasant way to go, either.
Scurvy starts with lethargy before causing achy joints, swollen limbs, and loose teeth, according to Real Clear Science. From there, sufferers get swollen gums, bad breath, and bruising. The skin turns yellow, then black, just before sufferers die from internal hemorrhaging. The tragic part is scurvy is ridiculously easy to cure. Real Clear Science reports someone on the brink of death from the disease could be saved by eating one-fifth of an orange every day for a week. Alas, doctors of the time didn't know what vitamins were, and ships weren't exactly built to store fresh fruit. The disease is mostly gone now, but a post at notes that NASA scientists are using the lessons learned to ensure astronauts get the vitamins they need to stay healthy in space. (Is it possible kids are getting too many vitamins?)

My late father, a WWII vet, told me they got no fruits and vegetables for several months after landing at Casablanca and moving inland into North Africa. Scurvy took hold. The Army finally secured cabbage from a source in central Africa. It did the trick, but they ate so much cabbage he never again would eat it the rest of his life.

"What drives left-wing immigration policy?"

From the Washington Examiner's Dan Hannan...
Join me in a little thought experiment.
Suppose some conservative think tank were to propose a Darwinian immigration policy. No longer would people be admitted because they had applied properly and played by the rules; nor yet because they were judged to be in need of political asylum. Instead, as in some dystopian science fiction film, applicants would have to go through an obstacle course designed to weed out the weaklings. Some would die in the attempt. Many more would turn back, defeated. Only the most crafty and determined would win through, bringing their cunning to their new homeland and adding their ruthless DNA to its gene pool.
I think we can imagine how the Left would react to such an idea. The people proposing would be howled down as Nazis, hounded out of public life. And yet the process I have just described is becoming an increasingly common route into Britain, America and Europe.
When illegal immigrants elbow aside those who have queued patiently and those judged to be victims of repression, Leftists demand that they be allowed to stay. (read the whole thing)
Probably the most frustrating thing about illegal immigration is little discussed. It's the government number one job to protect the country against invasion. That is literally their number one job. Things have been slowly allowed to progress in such a way that it is conceivable illegal immigration will soon be the next pot legalization.

Hillary Clinton's SnapChat joke

Video at USA Today. For reference. You've seen it. Hillary jokes about liking Snapchat because the messages disappear. She's received a good deal of criticism for making light of a subject so serious.

I've seen bits of the clip repeatedly and each time I'm compelled to imitate her and by imitating her, by studying the snippet and copying her, I realized she's not real. To imitate her one must first become unreal. A marionette in Team America compares nicely, the head motions are not quite steady, the focus uncertain and unnatural, the speech synthesizer's dodgy programming is evident by her halted presentation and with no sense of comic timing, actually, no sense whatever of humanity. By imitating her and trying to nail the imitation given the few seconds but repeated one takes up her point of view and by taking it up one becomes a bit stoned. It feels like that. I think she's drugged, and I think that because I nailed an imitation of her and that's what it feels like to do it. It feels like her whole world dissolving and she's been given drugs to calm her nerves that allowed the speech to be delivered, allowed a public presentation, and this is what happened. I think we are watching her campaign fall apart. The pressure is getting to her.

NFL player returns his sons' trophies

"I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies! While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy. I'm sorry I'm not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned and I'm not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best...cause sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better...not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut u up and keep you happy. #harrisonfamilyvalues"

"Fast moving bad news builds prosperity"

Glenn Reynolds:
Nassim Nicholas Taleb recently tweeted: "The free-market system lets you notice the flaws and hides its benefits. All other systems hide the flaws and show the benefits.”
This drew a response: "The most valuable property of the price mechanism is as a reliable mechanism for delivering bad news." These two statements explain a lot about why socialist systems fail pretty much everywhere but get pretty good press, while capitalism has delivered a truly astounding results but is constantly besieged by detractors...
Last paragraph.
Markets make people better off, but they don’t provide sufficient opportunities for politicians to extract bribes and intellectuals to feel better about themselves. This explains why they’re unpopular with politicians and intellectuals. The real question is why anyone else listens to the self-interested claims of politicians and intellectuals. Maybe because the subject of what works and what doesn't in economics is mostly written by journalists?

"Guardian Angels return to New York's Central Park"

"[T]hey made a pointed return to New York's Central Park for the first time in more than two decades, citing a 26 per cent rise in crime there so far this year."
"We realise things are much better than they were" in the crime peak of the 1980s and early 90s, said Curtis Sliwa, the group's founder, but "we want it to stay that way."...
Onlookers' reactions ranged from thumbs up to raised eyebrows. "Time warp!" one passing jogger exclaimed.
"I didn't even know they were still in business," said Christine Adebiyi, a resident of Harlem, before adding: "It's great to see them here."

"Morgan Freeman’s step-granddaughter stabbed to death in ‘exorcism’"

"The granddaughter of acclaimed actor Morgan Freeman was stabbed to death on a Manhattan sidewalk early Sunday during what law-enforcement sources and witnesses described as an “exorcism” at the hands of her ranting boyfriend."
“Get out, devils! I cast you out, devils! In the name of Jesus Christ, I cast you out!” the killer yelled as he plunged a hunting knife into 33-year-old E’Dena Hines’ chest, according to George Hudacko, who witnessed the 3 a.m. attack from his apartment window in Washington Heights.
Her live-in boyfriend, Lamar Davenport, 30, was in the throes of a drug-induced psychosis when he came after her, police sources said.
“Jesus Christ is born!” he shouted maniacly over her body.

Ray Roasrio, who claims to be Davenport's best friend, says he went out for dinner with the couple and some friends late on Saturday night, and it was the happiest he had seen Hines for a long time.
He told The Daily Beast: 'I’m still trying to come to grips with what happened. I’m caught between the hate I have for him, my love for him being my brother, and my heart breaking for her.'

I assumed it's American. It looks and sounds like a Texas thing. And that makes the little tee trimmed as a topiary in its stark protective square even more funny. But it's Dutch. Apparently a New Year celebration tradition, and there goes the funniness of the silly tree while making the song even more funny.

The Great Unlearning

Number of Hillary Clinton's emails flagged for classified data grows to sixty.

And the review continues. The figure will grow as they read through the 30,000 work-related emails that passed through her personal server. Federal officials have known since May her emails contained secret government information, the process of sorting through them will take a few month.

The Washington pieces describes how these emails came to surface, what the parcel is part of, the level of security the messages are held, and what they are not to be confused with, other emails marked top secret. Looking into those other emails is another process by another group to resolve, a process that will go on at least until January.

The legal case against Hillary Clinton

"Excerpt of a Friday Aug. 14, Wall Street Journal Op-ed by former US Attorney General and former U.S. District Judge Michael B. Mukasey. (google headline to read article)
The highest step in this ascending scale of criminal penalties—20 years maximum—is reached by anyone who destroys “any record, document or tangible object with intent to impede, obstruct or influence the proper administration of any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or agency of the United States . . . or in relation to or contemplation of any such matter.”
So, for example, if Mrs. Clinton caused to be wiped out emails that might have been anticipated to be of interest to a congressional committee, such conduct would come within the sweep of the statute. That, by the way, is the obstruction-of-justice statute, as revised by the Sarbanes-Oxley law, passed by Congress in 2002 while Mrs. Clinton served as a senator, and for which she voted.
All of this is not to suggest that Mrs. Clinton is in real danger of going to jail any time soon.
