Teach Seals Not To Rape

Every time I think about our government I feel like a penguin

Things are heating up in the cold climes of the sub-Antarctic. On a remote, and mostly desolate island, seals have been caught engaging in an extreme form of sexual behaviour.

Specifically, they have been trying to have sex with penguins.

More than one fur seal has been caught in the act, on more than one occasion.
And it’s all been captured on film, with details being published in the journal Polar Biology.

The video, well, you have been warned…

Constitution? Separation Of Powers?

What a pathetic joke.

No, Sorry CNN

You didn’t get pasted in the mid-terms because of Freemasons sharing information on Twitter for god’s sake

Washington (CNN) — Republicans and outside groups used anonymous Twitter accounts to share internal polling data ahead of the midterm elections, CNN has learned, a practice that raises questions about whether they violated campaign finance laws that prohibit coordination.
The Twitter accounts were hidden in plain sight. The profiles were publicly available but meaningless without knowledge of how to find them and decode the information, according to a source with knowledge of the activities.
The practice is the latest effort in the quest by political operatives to exploit the murky world of campaign finance laws at a time when limits on spending in politics are eroding and regulators are being defanged.

I find it so pathetic that the Dems are so up in arms that the polls they commissioned and took ahead of the election were wrong…the polls, mind you, not, say, their awful policies.

But yes, of course, so now the rallying cry will be “Government control of da Interwebz is needed to keep us Free!”

Wabs Are Just The Bestest

I admit it, this (via Ace) brought back memories and I cried. But what a schweet fun loving boy!

The full-bore belly giggles from the child are priceless.

Had Some Wet Snow Last Night

Very very nice to see.

I lurves me some Winter.

Time to break out the wool boxers.

Armistice Day

That whole “War-To-End-All-Wars” stuff sadly never really seems to work out, does it?

I just lurve it when some Show-Boater gets their comeuppance.

It’s Only Taken Six Years

and trillions of dollars in debt and god only knows the damage done by the unconstitutional diktats and social/economic/racial polarizing but at last the Press is finally kinda sorta maybe getting the idea that this White House is full of shit

Thanks for doing your job, guys.

Insta Down?

Oh Noessss!

A Good Night

Now just don’t blow it.

Oh and The One’s presser this afternoon aught to be an exquisite example of petulance.

Update:

I really do have to put this up

Yummy yummy!

Updated Update:

Ah, sweet sweet deliciousness from the Guardian

Democrats have suffered a crushing political defeat in the US midterm elections, losing control of the Senate, with their Republican opponents on the verge of securing their largest majority in the House of Representatives since the 1940s.

President Barack Obama’s party awoke on Wednesday to the political equivalent of a pounding hangover; a wave of defeats more numerous and deeper than many Democrats had feared.

Republicans gained at least seven Senate seats from Democrats, cementing the GOP’s power base on Capitol Hill and boosting the party’s standing before the 2016 presidential elections.

On a night of few positives for Democrats, Republicans also outperformed them in most of the 36 governors’ races, clinching stunning victories in Democratic strongholds including Massachusetts, Maryland and Illinois.

“This is ugly,” one top Democrat involved in the party’s election strategy told the Guardian in the early hours of Wednesday morning. “It is so much worse than we expected.”

The defeat is a major blow to the president, whose low approval ratings contributed heavily to his party’s electoral drubbing. Obama, an already isolated and unpopular president, must now see out his remaining two years in the White House with his Republican opponents controlling both branches of Congress.

The extent of the rout will also be a cause for concern for Hillary Clinton, the heir-apparent for the Democratic presidential nomination, who, along with her husband, former president Bill Clinton, stumped for several of the party’s Senate candidates who lost badly.

Election Day

Get out and vote.

It matters, we need to get beyond the margin of fraud.

To Learn To Stand You Have To Fall A Few Times

Test Flights are risky.

Does this mean that the FAA should have been more involved in regulating this activity? No. This was a test flight. This is what test flights are for. The desert around Mojave has a decades-long history of smoking holes in the ground and test-pilot funerals, though most of them usually originate from Edwards AFB, a few mile to the south.

RIP as-yet-unnamed pilot, and may your memory be properly honored by more work and further, successful test flights.

So For Halloween This Year…

I thought I’d go to the office dressed as a doofy white guy.

I’ve been working on this costume for 50+ years now…

This Is A Huge Scandal

It deserves a lot more attention than it’s getting

Massive, systemic academic fraud at UNC-Chapel Hill revolving around its athletics department (particularly the high-power basketball team) has been detailed in an explosive investigation that if anything does not go far enough. Forbes reports:

An eight-month investigation by former federal prosecutor Kenneth L. Wainstein has found that more than 3100 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill students – almost half of them athletes — were given credit for “irregular” (read: nonexistent) classes over an 18-year period from 1993-2011 as part of a organized scheme that allowed many to remain sports-eligible.

The Wainstein report — which the University of North Carolina (UNC) authorized and paid for — does not directly implicate any coach. [...] we didn’t receive a full-throated answer from Mr. Wainstein, perhaps because he was hired by the party that stands to lose the most from a comprehensive presentment.

College big money athletics have, in large part, turned into a cancer that is destroying our universities.

“Please Pray For His Finger!”

Um…no.

(CNN) — Former baseball slugger Jose Canseco accidentally shot himself in his left finger while cleaning a gun, police said.
He was in surgery Tuesday night, his fiancee tweeted.
“This is Leila . Thank you all for the kind words and prayers . Jose is in still surgery and will be ok. Please pray for his finger !!,” she said in a tweet posted to his account.

According to that font of veracity Wikipedia he has lost his middle left finger, which has probably reduced his working vocabulary by 50%.

He is an idiot.

Ya Know, A Lot Of Folks Might Agree With Her

Being forced to stay in NJ for 21 days is clearly a violation of her Human Rights… :)

Puh-LEEZ

Funny isn’t it how Christie is DAH EVUL NAZI whilst Cuomo, you know the guy who sat next to Christie at the news conference and announced the same quarantine program for NY as Christie did for NJ, ah old Cuomo he’s just peaches and cream according to the Press, now isn’t he?

Can’t for the life of me figure out why one’s treated differently.

Nope.

New York, New York: Axes And Ebola-ing Alleys

So yesterday we had a Presbyterian critically injure a cop with an axe

A hatchet-swinging psycho with Islamic militant leanings turned a busy Queens street corner into a scene of bloody chaos Thursday, chopping a rookie cop in the back of the head and slicing a second officer on the arm before two other officers shot him dead.
In opening fire on the madman, cops accidentally wounded a bystander, ­authorities said.
Officer Kenneth Healey, 25, had just four months on the job when Zale Thompson, 32, of Queens — a “scholarly” but “weird” ­recent convert to Islam — fractured the back of the cop’s skull with one swing of a blue-handled hatchet at about 2 p.m. in Jamaica.

…Thompson is being investigated for broader terrorist connections, a law-enforcement source said, adding, “There are suspected terror ties.”
Thompson’s Facebook page includes an passage from the Koran in Arabic script beseeching Allah’s guidance in finding “the straight path” and a black-and-white photograph of a black-scarved militant.
Thompson was a “very educated” proponent of “black power” and a graduate of the College of New Rochelle in Harlem, said a classmate who asked not to be identified by name.

and then we had yet another case of one of our Esteemed Really Smart Medical Professionals showing just how wise these Edjumatcated Folks really are

A Harlem doctor who recently treated patients in Africa tested positive for the deadly disease ­after he was rushed to Bellevue Hospital Thursday morning with fatigue, nausea and a 103-degree fever.
Dr. Craig Spencer, a 33-year-old Doctors Without Borders volunteer, and his live-in fiancée, Morgan Dixon, 30, were quarantined at Bellevue as investigators ­retraced the couple’s steps from the six days since the doctor returned from Guinea last Friday, the sources said. The Associated Press reported two of Spencer’s friends were also quarantined but had shown no symptoms of the virus.

…Bassett said Spencer left Guinea on Oct. 14, and returned to the U.S. three days later. He went through mandatory Ebola screening processes upon arriving at John F. Kennedy International Airport, officials said.
Spencer was well and asymptomatic until Thursday, but started feeling “tired” on Tuesday, Bassett said.
Still, Bassett went on a three-mile jog on Wednesday. He also went to the High Line and may have stopped at a restaurant on Wednesday before his bowling excursion, Bassett said.
As WCBS 880’s Peter Haskel reported, Bassett said Spencer has also used the subway system. He has ridden on the A Train, the No. 1 Train and the L Train.

See, he’s the Professional. He spent a month in Guinea treating Ebola patients. And he came back here and chilled in the Big City.

Until he got the chills.

Shockingly, He Was A Presbyterian

Certainly that thought was never on anyone’s mind

A Muslim convert shot dead a Canadian soldier at the National War Memorial in Ottawa today before exchanging dozens of shots with guards inside Parliament in a terrifying attack that left the nation’s capital on lockdown.
Michael Zehaf-Bibeau fatally shot Corporal Nathan Cirillo, a 24-year-old father, as he stood guard at the War Memorial on Wednesday morning.
Zehaf-Bibeau then ran inside the Parliament, where he opened fire before he was shot dead by the House of Commons Sergeant-at-Arms.
Zehaf-Bibeau, who had a criminal history for drug trafficking in Montreal and robbery in Vancouver, was born in Quebec as Michael Joseph Hall but recently converted to Islam, CBS reported.
Sources told the Globe and Mail that he had been designated ‘high-risk traveler’ and government had seized his passport

Mind you, in the continuing annals of Self-Delusion, the Canadian Globe and Mail provides more background information on this fellow without ever in the entire article being able to bring themselves around to actually saying it

Federal sources have identified the suspected shooter as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a man in his early 30s who was known to Canadian authorities.

Sources told The Globe and Mail that he was recently designated a “high-risk traveller” by the Canadian government and was unable to secure the appropriate travel documentation, thus blocking his attempt to travel abroad. The circumstances are similar to that surrounding the case of Martin Rouleau-Couture, the Quebecker who was shot Monday after running down two Canadian Forces soldiers with his car.

Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau was born in 1982 and was the son of Bulgasem Zehaf, a Quebec businessman who appears to have fought in 2011 in Libya, and Susan Bibeau, the deputy chairperson of a division of Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board.

Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau has a record in Quebec in the early 2000s for petty crimes such as possession of drugs, credit-card forgery and robbery. He was also charged with robbery in 2011 in Vancouver.

The “similar circumstances” being conversion to that Peaceful Lifestyle.

So nothing at all to see here, really.

Obama’s Ebola Czar At Work

It’s been quiet…too quiet

Gulf of Mexico:

1. Satellite images and surface observations indicate that the area of
low pressure in the southern Bay of Campeche has become better
defined. Although the associated showers and thunderstorms are
currently not well organized, this system has the potential to
become a tropical cyclone during the next day or so while it moves
slowly eastward toward the western Yucatan Peninsula. Later in the
week, the low is forecast to interact and possibly merge with a
frontal system over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico or northwestern
Caribbean Sea. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is
scheduled to investigate the disturbance this afternoon. Interests
in the Yucatan Peninsula should monitor the progress of this system.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…40 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…50 percent.

Y’all know the drill.

…Poems attributed to Queen Elizabeth I

On Monsieur’s Departure
BY QUEEN ELIZABETH I
I grieve and dare not show my discontent,
I love and yet am forced to seem to hate,
I do, yet dare not say I ever meant,
I seem stark mute but inwardly do prate.
I am and not, I freeze and yet am burned,
Since from myself another self I turned.

My care is like my shadow in the sun,
Follows me flying, flies when I pursue it,
Stands and lies by me, doth what I have done.
His too familiar care doth make me rue it.
No means I find to rid him from my breast,
Till by the end of things it be supprest.

Some gentler passion slide into my mind,
For I am soft and made of melting snow;
Or be more cruel, love, and so be kind.
Let me or float or sink, be high or low.
Or let me live with some more sweet content,
Or die and so forget what love ere meant.
