    i was at the cashier at a local hardware store today. the cashier was female and late 50s to mid 60s. i was buying some tools and some junk food including twinkies. to make a joke, i said i was dan white and i need the twinkies to provide my excuse. after a few moments the cashier recognized "dan white" and presumably the connection to twinkies and laughed. she said dan white, he is really scary. i would have left it at that but she went on to say "just like trump." i took the bait. i said why. she...

    June 9, 1870. Charles Dickens sat writing at his desk. He had been laboring more than was his custom on his latest book. Though the story was progressing well, Mr. Dickens was not feeling well. His left hand clawed at the air. His left foot dragged on the ground. And though he had recently retired from public performances with a final reading from Pickwick, his pen scarcely ceased its scratching. A profound and perplexing mystery was unfolding beneath that pen and Mr. Dickens’ knew it well. If only his readers might know it as well.It had been five years...

    Fuel Fix ^ | June 28, 2016 | Collin Eaton
    HOUSTON – Rising crude prices could spur hiring across the Texas oil patch by August, a regional economist says, beginning a slow but steady reversal in the state’s energy employment after struggling drillers shed 1 in 3 jobs. Over the past two months, a dozen U.S. oil companies — including Devon Energy and Pioneer Natural Resources — have announced plans to plow an extra $600 million into their shale fields in Texas and elsewhere as crude prices hover near $50 a barrel. Several have dispatched new rigs and received drilling permits. Next, they’ll start hiring new people – unless, of...

Long Beach police officers were in the 2800 block of East 15th Street about 9 a.m. investigating a man wanted in connection with an assault with a deadly weapon case. Police surrounded an apartment complex in the area and a shooting occurred, police spokeswoman Sgt. Cynthia Arrona said.

    FOUR AMERICANS DIED, AND HILLARY CLINTON IS RESPONSIBLE! Hell has space for this woman right now, please Lord Jesus! There was no way that Hillary Clinton should be the nominee for the Democratic Party with Benghazi over her head. She was told of the extreme atmosphere happening in that region and she turned her back. Ambassador Chris Stevens asked for more security, and she turned her back. When those Americans were attacked in that consulate, she was nowhere to be found. When the bodies came back to the United States, with her back turn, she told the American public that...

    Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, called on Tuesday for Washington, in parallel with its negotiations with Europe, to pursue a separate free trade agreement with Britain, once it has formally separated from the European Union. Ryan, the highest-ranking elected Republican in the United States, echoed a call from many members of his party, who have dismissed President Barack Obama's contention that Britain will be at the "back of the queue" for trade talks. Obama issued that warning in April when he intervened to try to persuade Britons to vote to remain in the June 23...

    I have always been a pistol shooter. Even the first time I was out on the range, I loved everything about shooting, from the smell of the gunpowder to the sound the steel makes when it is hit by a bullet. I think that’s what got me hooked on competitive shooting. I was 9 years old when I attended and watched my first Glock Sport Shooting Foundation (GSSF) match in Columbia, S.C., and my whole family attended to see what it was all about. MY FIRST USPSA MATCH was the North Carolina Sectional in 2012. I had never even been...

    A Detroit Public Schools teacher who lives in Novi was the basis of an article in a suburban newspaper that inaccurately portrayed Detroit Public Schools as being neglected by policymakers and taxpayers when compared to suburban schools. The article appeared in the same week the Legislature approved a $617 million bailout of DPS, which included $150 million extra for unspecified spending. The article originally appeared in the Novi Hometownlife newspaper, with the title “Separate, unequal: Inside a Detroit classroom,” and then was picked up and run online by the Detroit Free Press. It made several claims that are not supported...

    The Democratic Party used to embrace homosexuals. Now, its Florida leaders are inviting enemies of the gay community to speak at their functions, and only one week following one of the worst episodes of violence against gays in American history. That was the case earlier this month, when anti-gay imam Maulana Shafayat Mohamed was allowed to speak at the Leadership Blue Gala, the annual banquet of the Florida Democratic Party. On June 19th, the Florida Democratic Party held its annual Leadership Blue Gala event. US Senator from New Jersey, Cory Booker, was the keynote speaker. However, one of the other...

    State Department officials on an emergency conference call during the Benghazi attack brought up concerns about whether Marines that might have been deployed should wear uniforms — something officials previously said could hurt diplomacy in the region, according to House Benghazi investigators. The final GOP-authored House Benghazi report released Tuesday included new details of a two-hour video teleconference call the night of the attack, a session led by White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough. Clinton and top Defense officials were also on the call, which was supposed to center on how to get Americans out of harm's way. But...

    Michigan will collect more taxes next year, but not as much as predicted a few months ago, leaving members of the Legislature looking at a sizable gap between what they want to spend and the money available to pay for it. The most constructive and efficient way to balance the budget is to eliminate the state’s corporate welfare programs and supporting bureaucracy. The budget the Legislature enacted for fiscal year 2016 included almost $178 million in six major items over which the Michigan Economic Development Corporation controls. Cutting this would not only help balance the budget, but could improve Michigan’s...

    Even basic sanitary requirements are too much for the pro-aborts to accept With Anthony Kennedy joining the four Justices who are always liberal (as opposed to Kennedy’s liberal-when-he-feels-like-it approach to interpreting the law), the Supreme Court tossed out the very modest Texas abortion restrictions that simply required abortion clinics to meet the same safety requirements as every other medical clinic, including doctors who are sufficiently credentialed to be able to admit patients at local hospitals. These restrictions were put in place to prevent more Kermit Gosnell-style butcher shops from springing to life. But you can forget that. Any restriction on...

    Just 13 percent of the local governments whose retirement systems are administered by a statewide entity have set aside enough money to pay the pensions promised to their workers. The Municipal Employees’ Retirement System (MERS) administers pension systems for 728 local cities, villages, townships, agencies and more. But only 97 of those systems have adequately funded their pension obligations, according to the operation’s most recent report that covers up to Dec. 31, 2014. Local government employees covered by MERS are owed some $12 billion worth of retirement benefits — but their employers have not set aside enough to cover the...

Thank you to Congressional investigators for their report. The Administration’s deception is beyond shameful. They sat back and allowed our peacekeepers to die during what they witnessed becoming a suicide mission. In command of the greatest military in the world, yet officials sat back in Washington’s comfort, not allowing our troops to do their job to protect fellow Americans.

When NBC News had to report that Quinnipiac found Trump and Clinton tied in Ohio and Pennsylvania they were stunned to almost speechlessness. Then things got worse when their resident political “expert” said, “If Trump flips Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida he is going to the White House.” The afternoon brought worse news for Clinton.

    Right now, if a Michigan citizen goes to get a car repaired, it is fairly simple for the owner of the vehicle and a mechanic to decide what kind of parts to use to provide the fix. Unless a bill that has passed the Michigan Legislature is vetoed by Gov. Snyder, that process is about to get a lot more complicated. There are two main types of auto parts: Those made by original equipment manufacturers (OEM) or those made by other companies (aftermarket). By and large, insurance companies, crash tests and research findings do not find a safety difference between...

    American Rattlesnake ^ | June 27, 2016 | Gerard Perry
    A few additional notes regarding George Hawley’s fascinating look at dissent within the right: Notwithstanding the Trump Ascendancy, his belief that moderate libertarianism-or conservatarianism, as some have dubbed it-will exert the greatest influence over mainstream conservatism in the years ahead holds some merit. The disdain the modern conservative movement has for genuinely libertarian ideas is reflected in the figure of Jonah Goldberg, someone whom every group described in Professor Hawley’s book would view with contempt, at best. The fact that his publication has gone out of its way to publish writers who present a watered-down, libertarian lite perspective merely demonstrates...

    The Atlantic ^ | June 27, 2016 | Derek Thompson
    Millions of men in the prime of their lives are missing from the labor force. Could a big U.S. housing construction project bring them back? Something is rotten in the U.S. economy. Poor men without a college degree are disappearing from the labor force. The share of prime-age men (ages 25-54) who are neither working nor looking for work has doubled since the 1970s. The U.S.’s labor participation rate for this group of men is lower than every country in the OECD except for Israel (an outlier, because of the high number of non-working Orthodox Jewish men) and Italy (an...

    Oil Price ^ | June 23, 2016 | Dave Forest
    Fracking is once again becoming a hot topic in the oil and gas world., with Germany moving Tuesday to impose an indefinite ban on the unconventional drilling technique. But in the U.S. this week the story was the opposite. Oil and gas drillers won a critical legal victory over the future of fracking in America’s shale plays. That came in Wyoming, where a District Judge struck down a set of tougher rules on fracking that had been implemented by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) early last year. Last March, the BLM came down hard on the U.S. shale...

    1. In WWII a number of soldiers died of well, farts. When ascending in an unpressurized plane to 20,000 feet, it causes intestinal gas to expand 300%. I guess some guys couldn't fart quickly enough. They should have brought pigs along with them. Then when Porkie was ready to blow, fly over the enemy's plane and drop him. When Porkie goes Blammo you blow the enemy to hell!! Even if you miss, it's okay. The explosion and fire fries up Porko Boy nice and crispy and countryside below rains down bacon, so the starving countryside gets fed. Yay! 2. Speaking...

    Carlos Beruff ^ | June 27, 2016 | Pinkbell
    I have already posted on here about Paul Nehlen who is a terrific candidate attempting to Cantor Paul Ryan. Nehlen is gaining some traction, but someone who people have been less focused on primarying (probably because he just announced he is running) is Marco Rubio. As we know, Marco Rubio has "endorsed" Trump while continuing to waver and make negative comments about him to the media. This is no way to get the party behind your nominee. Here is some info about Carlos Berulo: A father, husband and Florida businessman, Carlos Beruff is a proud representation of the American Dream....

    Attention-seeker 'Christian" conservative radio host Steve Duece wants to take on Donald Trump, and he's serious. NOTE: By the way, I purposely mean to misspell this creep's name throughout this piece. This "Christian conservative," that's what he calls himself, yelled names, berated and lied on the presumptive GOP nominee and then called out Trump for doing what he had just done. Duece has been trying bait Trump into a back and forth but he's a nobody. Deace has been trying to gain the limelight on liberal stations, and as you can see, he's atrocious at what he does. Deuce is a bully...
  • This out of control judge is exactly why I'm re-creating the Constitutional Convention

    06/27/2016 1:42:13 PM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 12 replies
    Many of you have no doubt seen the horrible tragedy of Judge Richard Posner writing that "I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, day, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution, the history of its enactment, its amendments, and its implementation" and have had the same response that I have. That's why I have been doing something about it. Blogging or making comments is too easy and probably doesn't have any impact anyways. We have a big problem in this country with elites believing that they have the right to totally control the...

    <p>I was verbally assaulted - and “assaulted” is, I think, the proper word here - by a middle-aged female Hillary supporter yesterday. It was quite a remarkable experience, like witnessing someone having a psychotic break, complete with rolling eyes, waving hands, rapid wall-talking, fantastical discussion positions and plenty of snarling personal insults - all while I barely said a word except to indicate, initially, that I was a Trump supporter.</p>
  • Liberal Gun Control Supporters Completely Destroyed By Sigmund Freud

    Matt Palumbo reports suppose you had a neighbor who favored gun control. If he really didn’t believe that guns made us safer, he certainly wouldn’t mind if you put a sign on your lawn stating “my next door neighbor wants to ban guns. Their house is not armed. Out of respect for their opinions I promise not to use my guns to protect them.” Part of the thinks they might mind just a bit. After Frank Schwagel, the owner of a Shell gas station in Minnesota was robbed twice in three months, he did just the opposite. Western Journalism reports:...
