and a loving tribute to his dad
Sweet MOTHER of GOD, SAVE us from 20-something feminist SJWs! In the store this afternoon, after looking up at Olympics on telly [insert disgusted voice]:
“WHY do they have the WOMEN in BATHING SUITS to RIDE BIKES in a race?!” [steam steam steam]
THS lifts quizzical eyebrow a la Ebola.
“It’s the triathlon [unspoken: YOU EFFING TWIT]. They swim a third of it.”
Interest now engaged elsewhere that outrage unwarranted.
Remember when it wasn’t ENOUGH that President Bush cut a vacation short and flew over Katrina ravaged New Orleans on his way back to the White House? How he should have BEEN there?
Good times, good times.
And it seemed like nobody was cutting short jack in Martha’s Vineyard.
Not for cities under water, not for cities on fire…
UNTIL what amounts to a CRISIS forced his hand (from the club shaft):
OBAMA INTERRUPTING VACATION TO CAMPAIGN FOR CLINTON
EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) — Golf, afternoons at the beach and … political campaigning?
President Barack Obama is interrupting what so far has been a leisurely vacation to help raise money for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee. Obama has said there’s never been anyone more qualified than Clinton, who was his rival in the 2008 presidential contest and his first-term secretary of state, to be president.
Good to know SOMEBODY can count on him!
…until Trump firmly (re: to liberal/pundit/mob media satisfaction) “disavowed” Duke’s despicableness? REMEMBER?
Ah, good times, good times.
I’m waiting on the Democrats, media and ESPECIALLY LGBT howls of outrage about the picture of this smiling fellow, SITTING DIRECTLY BEHIND HILLARY CLINTON last night at her rally.
Seats behind the party nominee at rallies are reserved for special folks, you know?

Actually, if you took a picture of him right now he’d look exactly the same, the bastard.
Minus the onesie, I hope.
ths update: I’ll add a “GREATEST HITS” medley. WUBS you, little bruzzer.
Maybe THAT’S Obama’s secret plan to destroy the Mullahs right there!
U.S. Sent Cash to Iran as Americans Were Freed
Obama administration insists there was no quid pro quo, but critics charge payment amounted to ransom
The Obama administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million worth of cash to Iran that coincided with the January release of four Americans detained in Tehran, according to U.S. and European officials and congressional staff briefed on the operation afterward.
Wooden pallets stacked with euros, Swiss francs and other currencies were flown into Iran on an unmarked cargo plane, according to these officials. The U.S. procured the money from the central banks of the Netherlands and Switzerland, they said.
Everybody KNOWS Euros aren’t worth shit!
And by “good” I of course mean sad
Haunting this year’s presidential contest is the sense that the U.S. government no longer belongs to the people and no longer represents them. And this uneasy feeling is not misplaced. It reflects the real state of affairs.
We have lost the government we learned about in civics class, with its democratic election of representatives to do the voters’ will in framing laws, which the president vows to execute faithfully, unless the Supreme Court rules them unconstitutional. That small government of limited powers that the Founders designed, hedged with checks and balances, hasn’t operated for a century. All its parts still have their old names and appear to be carrying out their old functions. But in fact, a new kind of government has grown up inside the old structure, like those parasites hatched in another organism that grow by eating up their host from within, until the adult creature bursts out of the host’s carcass. This transformation is not an evolution but a usurpation.
What has now largely displaced the Founders’ government is what’s called the Administrative State—a transformation premeditated by its main architect, Woodrow Wilson. The thin-skinned, self-righteous college-professor president, who thought himself enlightened far beyond the citizenry, dismissed the Declaration of Independence’s inalienable rights as so much outmoded “nonsense,” and he rejected the Founders’ clunky constitutional machinery as obsolete. (See “It’s Not Your Founding Fathers’ Republic Any More,” Summer 2014.) What a modern country needed, he said, was a “living constitution” that would keep pace with the fast-changing times by continual, Darwinian adaptation, as he called it, effected by federal courts acting as a permanent constitutional convention.
read the whole thing and have a depressing weekend.

Do you remember what happened today many…MOONS ago?
The EAGLE FRICKIN’ LANDED
And the crowds went WILD!
How about a little song to savor the moment.
Let’s pause just for a second and revel in pure, unadulterated CONQUEST like it USED to be, when we could be PROUD of being the BEST at GOD DAMNED EVERYTHING…before the day goes to shit again, shall we?
Honestly if I had written that and someone stole it I would never call them out; I’d be too embarrassed to be associated with such banal pablum.
Happy Fourth of July, my fellow Americans!
…what everyone’s cooking for the Fourth.
I’ve got Chilton County peaches with blueberries crumble top pie in the oven right now and major dad is smoking ribs. Pictures shortly.
Hot dogs tomorrow.
What’re YOU guys doing? If you’ve got pictures, email me. I’ll put ’em up.
What we seeing play out now in the Brexit post-mortem is the exact kind of over-educated, arrogant dismissal of the will of the proletariat that got them where they are. When it was all heading in REMAIN’s direction, no one really heard anything about education, income class, AGE… But now that things have gone so horribly awry for the so horribly better situated in their plans for controlling lives not their own, in an effort to delegitimize the entire process, all these patronizing denigrations of the electorate who chose LEAVE have started. When you drill down into the post-polling data, they sniff and look disgustedly Heavenward, you see UNEDUCATED (by which they mean: no sheepskin), UNWASHED, MENIAL JOBS, LOWER MIDDLE CLASS, LOVELY FILTH OVER HERE, DENNIS! Ergo, this entire process is tainted, denying the flower of UK 20 somethings the future of THEIR choice (“I’m NOT British, I’m EUROPEAN” read one sweet young thing’s sign), as these selfish, “patriotic” OLD FUCKERS who are going to DIE SOON ANYWAY indulged themselves in one last fantasy round of Rule Britannia.
As David Brooks said last night, he understood LEAVE’s anger, he just wished they’d embraced a “more cosmopolitan form of patriotism.” WTF does that even MEAN?
It’s an ageist AND uneducated themed run at…your everyday, regular Brit.
The enraged, ever-so-clevers are manipulating this momentous ROAR of a formerly mewling British lion into:
“Toothless, rag-selling, dung covered Alzheimer patients ruin youths’ bright future.“
Don’t let them.
…the second he realized what a GREAT distraction from THIS they might just turn out to be.
US durable goods orders fell 2.2% in May vs. 0.5% drop expected
10:25 p.m. CST and LEAVE is 600K+ ahead. Let’s hope this holds and they get their country back.
Twenty minutes later, LEAVE is up over 800K and **sadfaces**

…plus Labour calling for Cameron’s head already.
…of the Democratic
temper tantrum sit-in fundraiser on the floor of Congress last night.
“Standing up” for your principles sure doesn’t look like it used to.
Happy Father’s Day to ALL you wonderful, incredible, ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL guys like major dad, my Daddy, my miss-him-every-day-bestest-Father-in-Law-Ever, my amazing, capable brothers like Bingley and schweetest brothers-in-law.
WHERE would the world be without fathers? We’re getting a peek right now.
It was quite lurvly last night.
…that make me want to warm up the Enola Gay
Taliban use ‘honey trap’ boys to kill Afghan police
•June 16, 2016
The Taliban are using child sex slaves to mount crippling insider attacks on police in southern Afghanistan, exploiting the pervasive practice of “bacha bazi” — paedophilic boy play — to infiltrate security ranks, multiple officials and survivors of such assaults told AFP.
The ancient custom is prevalent across Afghanistan, but nowhere does it seem as entrenched as in the province of Uruzgan, where “bacha bereesh” — or boys without beards — widely become objects of lustful attraction for powerful police commanders.
The Taliban over nearly two years have used them to mount a wave of Trojan Horse attacks — at least six between January and April alone — that have killed hundreds of policemen, according to security and judicial officials in the province.
“The Taliban are sending boys — beautiful boys, handsome boys — to penetrate checkpoints and kill, drug and poison policemen,” said Ghulam Sakhi Rogh Lewanai, who was Uruzgan’s police chief until he was removed in a security reshuffle in April amid worsening violence.
“They have figured out the biggest weakness of police forces — bacha bazi,” he told AFP.
Excuse me while I go vomit.
