Tipping Point

Living the life of a pseudo victim is such a lazy way to live. Not only is it self defeating; I am a victim, ergo I am unable to prosper on my own so it is incumbent for me to declare my victim-hood,establishing my marker, assuming it is not self evident, and take whatever is offered to me by way of compensation that society owes me………….because I am a victim. Removing all responsibility (The Man has his boot on my neck) I have no potential to live up to, here’s is my opened hand, fill it with stuff.

Several times of late I have posted links to websites who’s basic function is to catalog phony made up hate crimes, here is one, here is another, here is one more, I could post half a dozen others. You would think that not one racist exists, anywhere, since each one of these incidents usually turns out to be bogus after a few days of investigating. And my standard complaint about these fictional made up to perpetuate a stereotype of dubious nature fairy tales is that nothing ever happens to the hoakser. I guess the collective sigh of relief that it didn’t really happen as depicted drowns out the culpability of the liar and retribution that society should enact in a more just world.

So here is the latest (probably not latest since in the time it takes to post this, I’m sure a new one has surfaced) cry for attention;

A black waitress who received thousands of dollars in donations after she claimed she received a racist note and no tip from a patron last month fabricated the incident, the customer claims.

Kelly Carter, a waitress at Anita’s New Mexico Cafe in Ashburn, Va., claimed that a white man stiffed her on his $30.52 restaurant bill and wrote “Great service, don’t tip black people” at the bottom of his receipt.

But the note was forged, says Daniel Hebda, a lawyer for the customer.

Hebda said in a statement Friday that his client did leave Carter a small tip — one penny — because her service was poor, not because she is black.

We’ll talk about the cheesy tip in a moment. A black waitress writes something racist on her receipt, how do we know she did it:

Though Carter’s story went viral, there were some early indications that her claim did not quite add up. For one, the receipt she posted online was printed several hours after Anita’s New Mexico Cafe closed. The receipt also bore markings showing that it was a reprint of an original receipt.

But when circumstances, even made up circumstances fit the narrative, it’s Katy bar the door;

“I was appalled, though it’s kind of in line with the political landscape,” Tellez said at the time.

Ha, another leftie talking out of his ass, is he referring to a Trump win as somehow turning our society into racists? Like I would ever eat in his dopey restaurant after that.

So now duped customers are giving her cash and an NAACP rep started a gofundme account for this poor woman.

Here are the questions; does this woman get fired? (or course not, victims are allowed to lie on occasion, the perks of the status) What happens to the online money in the account? She gets to keep that, since with progressives it’s all about feeling good, the donators would want her to have it, because she is a victim and all that.

Now let’s talk about the tip, what a douchewagon. If the service is genuinely bad (not the fault of the cook, or because they are super busy) then speak to the manager. Some people are not cut out to be service workers. I also factor in the time spent of her shift (you can tell by the bounce in her step, if there is one). Since waiters rely on their tips for income, I’m willing to overlook a lot. But the bad ones (you know who they are), do the restaurant and future customers a favor and let the manager know, and give them tip anyway, unless your food never ever comes (happened to me, more than once). Leaving a penny as a tip only makes you look bad.

Group Hug

How cool is this? An alternate universe where Hillary actually won the presidency;

A place for the unhinged triggered perpetually aggrieved, like a warm blanket wrapped in puppies.

The site is really pretty funny, all the fake news (of course the average drop in would not know it) you can wag a finger at, but drop the clutched pearls first.

Reading some of headlines got me thinking, what other nonsense would they believe?

1) The science is settled.
2) A first grader at Monmoth elementary school found a unicorn horn fragment in the school sandbox yesterday. “Peer reviewed” by the other first graders, the consensus being ,”I guess it could be part of a unicorn”, a study documenting the finding will be published in this month’s “Mythological Creature Review”.
3) A DNA test has revealed that Trump really is Hitler, a cloned Hitler.
4) The NY Times has just leaked a copy of Robert Byrd’s will identifying Steve Bannon as his illegitimate son.
5) Brian Pagliano, in a plea deal to avoid prison, provided heretofore unknown Clinton emails linking her to a paid hit squad that assassinated Ambassador Chris Stevens during the Benghazi attack. The emails revealed that Stevens had an affair with Chelsea back in 2011, whereby he refused to marry Chelsea after she became pregnant. A Stevens reply was attached to one of the emails where he stated he would rather nail his penis to a burning building than be part of the Clinton mob family.
6) A BLM activist found a new witness in the Ferguson area who gave an oral account of the event stating that Michael Brown really did have his hands up and said ,”Don’t shoot”. 2 other activists in the room, who heard the retelling, peer reviewed the account, settling the argument once and for all.

Oh, and those white folks that criticized Obama are racists, unable to overcome their racial prejudices and view Obama objectively, they will all buy that whopper.

Historic day today, and some other things

Today Barack Obama vacates the WH, and to the chagrin of the intelligentsia and the left, is replaced by a guy that the left took for granted would lose and referred to as the orange haired clown. I wish I someone would tape the reactions of Hillary Clinton today. That would make for one heck of a documentary. My guess is she will be drunk as a skunk, throwing shit at people, and especially Bill, blaming everyone for not giving her, her dues, and in general acting like the spoiled entitled person she is. Today Trump becomes US president, and while the DNC operatives with bylines continue to fantasize on how Trump would not end in the WH, reality is gonna suck for these people. Anyway, did I mention trump becomes president today? I did, good.

Now I propose an exercise. No big workout of either the body or the mind, although people that are historically challenged might have a hard time wanting to remember things. Here it goes. Remember how horrible the right behaved when Obama won the WH from Boosh? Those anti-democracy douchebags, thinking obviously that the only time democracy works is when they are winning, not only had the temerity to oppose Black Jesus’ coming, but setup subversive training camps for their paid grievance mongering apes! Heck, these frightwingers were so distraught and butthurt that the snowflakes needed special treatment! What a bunch of pansies. Thankfully now that Obama is leaving the adults will be in charge of a smooth transition, honoring democracy and the office of the presidency, just like the left spent the months before the election telling everyone patriotic Americans should behave like. If only those evil rightwingers wouldn’t resort to censorship!

At least we all can breathe a sigh of relief at this all. After all, the most transparent and ethical administration evah has left behind a government of laws and balanced power which should limit the next president’s ability to abuse power. And nobody should worry, since the guy is a pariah anyway. Sure, he talks a lot of crazy shit, but then again, he ain’t gonna get away with anything, because despite the plebe’s ineffective pushback, the guardians of freedom are on the job! The American people can count on them.

OK, enough satire, but the truth hurts. BTW, I have found the first Trump cabinet member I think needs to absolutely go and be blocked. And I am being serious. Mnuchin just crossed a line for me when he said that he wanted to expand the IRS. That den of inequity and evil needs to be disbanded. And no, I am not being sarcastic here. The IRS needs to go. It’s by far the most dangerous entity out there. More dangerous than the NSA snooping on you or the DOJ coming after you. The IRS can destroy your ability to make an income. Nothing is more important to a person’s independence.

UPDATE: Done deal.

$9 Trillion in debt! WHO YOU GONNA BLAME?

Read the title of my post as a spoof on the whole Ghostbusters song – the good one from back then, not the idiotic PC reboot that Hollywood douched us with last year – because it is appropriate. The other day another old democrat crone was asked for an explanation of why the country accumulated $9 trillion plus dollars in debt with absolutely nothing to show for it (a lot of vote buying there and Hillary still lost), and Pelosi, in her grandeur, blamed Boosh. I am starting to think Boosh might be some kind of inhumane super fiend, because the guy can do everything impossible.

Let’s all sign it, baby: If the left is called out on something bad, who ya gonna blame? “George BOOSH”! Catchy…

Here we go:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blamed former President George W. Bush and the Republicans on Friday for the more than $9 trillion that has been added to the national debt under President Obama’s watch.

Pelosi argued that under Obama, the annual budget deficit, which contributes to the national debt, has been reduced dramatically, and said that without Obama’s work, the national debt would be even higher. She also mostly blamed Bush for not paying for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

That same old tired trope again. Obama was great for the economy! Boosh’s Wars! This crap has to be because Pelosi knows for a fact that it was Boosh that bombed the twin towers. She must also think (or want everyone to believe) that it was Boosh whom unilaterally decided to invade Iraq. Thusly, poor godsend Obama struggled to end those evil wars, by losing them, and only managed to start conflicts all over the place – because of Boosh’s mind control, according to Pelosi (or was that all because of the evil Noble Peace Prize whispering in his ear?) – destabilizing the ME and the world in the process, had to spend all that money. It could never be that congress, mostly when it was totally controlled by democrats, felt obligated – probably because of Boosh’s evil super powers, again – to spend trillions more than the broken economy the democrats left us with after their social justice home-loan lending schemes imploded, so they could engage in buying votes, enriching special interests, and fattening donkey campaign coffers.

“When President Obama stood on the steps on the Capitol eight years from next week, the [budget] deficit was $1.4 trillion — one year deficit,” she said. “It’s reduced by 70 percent in his administration. Much of the increase in the national debt that has occurred from this time still springs from two unpaid-for wars, cost that we owe our veterans following that, giveaways that they gave to the pharmaceutical industry, and the high-end tax cuts that have carried forward without any job production. Absent the work of President Obama, this national debt would be even higher.”

Pelosi has some gall. Let me point out that $1.4 trillion dollar deficit was done by the congress she ran after the 2006 election, which remind everyone overrode evil Boosh to spend that money. Those of us that understand who decides how tax payer money gets spent, and who can sign for it or veto it, that is, if they can avoid that congressional override. Based on her own words, we are left basically connecting her accusations of that money being given to fat cats, with her. But somehow it still is Boosh’s fault they did that. Then you got this:

Pelosi noted the work done by former President Bill Clinton to balance the budget or leave a surplus.

You mean the work done by Newt Gingrich, thrice before it stuck? Gingrich dragged the smarter Clinton kicking and screaming away from the leftward turn his people and that crime syndicate capo he married for political convenience had been driving us for the first 2 years of his administration, and dismantled a lot of the horribly costly and wasteful welfare state. I wonder how that expensive welfare state fared under Obama, and if that coupled with the depressing and miserable Obama economy might have more to do with?

And then we have the other shoe about to drop: Obamacare. A monster that is poised to bankrupt America, if it is not slain soon. I bet Pelosi would like us to believe that was also Boosh’s fault even though not a single republican voted for this monstrosity and Boosh was on his ranch in Texas clearing brush. This is the Obama legacy, but the tools want you to believe someone else is responsible for 8 years of amateur hour.

Lets all sing it now: If you are a democrat, and you get called out on being crooks, who ya gonna blame? “George BOOSH”! If someone points out, you fucked America over good, who ya gonna blame? “George BOOSH”!

Catchy indeed. That Boosh guy is the most powerful villain in human history I tell you..

The Russians are coming!

The hypocrites released a report that was supposed to prove to us rubes that Trump definitely is that Manchurian candidate the suddenly anti-red democrats have been telling us now own us, and America was played into not electing the second coming – after the second coming of Black Jeebus,of course – by Gawd’s first daughter, late in the PM on Friday. Here it is. A pile of garbage, replete with conjecture and unsubstantiated/corroborated “facts”, and including this most hilarious of reasons:

The agencies believe that Putin wanted to discredit Clinton because he blames her for anti-Putin protests from 2011 and 2012.

What about this tidbit? That makes her a great friend to them IMO. Here she is selling America’s wealth to the supposed enemy for her own profit. Of course, as the libs that first tried their best to dismiss this event and now embrace it to make the desperate argument about Trump being a a Russian plant postulate, maybe she then dicked Putin later on and didn’t hold up her side of the deal, so they went after her! Or maybe, if you are inclined to actually believe that the Russians were behind this stuff, felt compelled to act, after the candidate the left told us was the only one that would not start WW3 actually said she would set up a no-fly zone in Syria that would affect another nuclear power. Oh the dilemma! Why oh why did they do it?

Me, I am more interested in why this dubious report, full of nothing but crap and lacking any substance, and obviously intended to undermine Trumps credibility, was released on a late Friday afternoon, which basically made sure the news cycle couldn’t rebut the nonsense in prime time. Recall that this tactic was and seems to remain the way this administration and the DNC operatives with bylines utilize regarding any “news item” that either hurt the left or needed to be “managed” to make it favor the left. When they had anything of substance or really felt they could use to push the news cycle to deliver the narrative, they released the content on a Monday or Tuesday, so as to give their army of operatives time to double down on the messaging.

Remember that these people couldn’t be bothered with security issues of any kind and never cared about either hacking everyone (especially American citizens and American allies) or being hacked. Clinton had an unsecured server so she could hide the Clinton foundation pay-to-play criminal activity – selling US assets, favors that hurt America and Americans, or both, for personal gain – that was hacked by everyone? Right-wing conspiracy! She only sent personal emails and stuff about her Yoga classes (as if cankles can do Yoga)! The Obama admin., didn’t just declassify that stuff because we now found out that she did have classified information that was basically stolen by intelligence agencies that opposed the US! Well, sure Obama lied about not knowing about this now that we have emails that prove they knew, but that is unimportant, because at this time “what difference does it make?” Nothing to see here, move on, said the FBI, of course, after the DOJ’s boss met with Bill and they told her that Obama would go down with cankles if they didn’t stop this investigation. Yawn! Security shmecurity! In the mean time others are languishing in jail, in court fighting charges and looking at hard time, the loss of their security clearance, and much pain, for much, much less. But the democrats could just not be bothered with the fact Hillary broke the law and compromised security!

And then we have someone doing the American people a favor and exposing the corruption of the DNC and the collusion with the DNC operatives with bylines masquerading as objective journalists to rig the electoral process, and suddenly these douchebags are all about security and the need to come down hard on the enemy! Red scare, baby! Trump is Putin’s bitch! Throw out the election results! He’s not my president! Hitler!!!!1!

What we need is more people reminding everyone that what the left really is pissed about, well other than the person the lefty intelligentsia thought was entitled to the presidency not winning and the organization as a whole being exposed as willing to cheat, steal, lie, and kill to make it so, is that someone actually revealed this to the American people. The democrats are pissed, and probably desperate to bury the fact that they are fucking lying crooks. That’s what this is all about.

Real Housewives of Political Correctness

So, a bunch of people have their boxers in a bunch about this sketch from the BBC comedy show Revolting:

A lot of people are jumping up and down claiming this is either offensive to Muslims or trivializes the rape and oppression that the real “wives” of ISIS are enduring. Now, I have a high offense threshold and have a taste for provocative humor, so take that into account. But I actually don’t see what the big deal is. The skit is kind of funny and, to me, seems to me a much more vicious satire of reality TV than of ISIS. And, to judge by the online commentary, a lot of Muslims are fine with it since they hate ISIS as much as anyone.

As for trivializing the rape of ISIS wives … look, one of the best things to do to evil men is mock them. It drives them absolutely crazy when you makes jokes about what they consider to me the most important thing in the world. That’s why they were so furious at Charlie Hebdo because the one thing a fanatic can’t stand is not being taken seriously. Mel Brooks, a Jewish veteran of WW2, has devoted decades to mocking Hitler at every turn.

So, please … more of this. More mockery, more jokes, more caricatures.

Year in Review

They year hasn’t ended until Dave Barry posts his Year in Review. And you know this one’s going to be a humdinger:

Let’s begin with the gruesome train wreck that was the presidential election. The campaign began with roughly 14,000 candidates running. Obviously not all of them were qualified to be president; some of them — here we are thinking of “Lincoln Chafee” — were probably imaginary. But a reasonable number of the candidates seemed to meet at least the minimum standard that Americans have come to expect of their president in recent decades, namely: Not Completely Horrible.

So this mass of candidates began the grim death march that is the modern American presidential campaign — trudging around Iowa pretending to care about agriculture, performing in an endless series of televised debates like suit-wearing seals trained to bark out talking points, going to barbecue after barbecue and smiling relentlessly through mouthfuls of dripping meat, giving the same speech over and over and over, shaking millions of hands, posing for billions of selfies and just generally humiliating themselves in the marathon group grovel that America insists on putting its presidential candidates through.

After all that, the American people, looking for a leader, ended up with a choice between ointment and suppository. The fall campaign was an unending national nightmare, broadcast relentlessly on cable TV. CNN told us over and over that Donald Trump was a colossally ignorant, narcissistic, out-of-control sex-predator buffoon; Fox News countered that Hillary Clinton was a greedy, corrupt, coldly calculating liar of massive ambition and minimal accomplishment. And in our hearts we knew the awful truth: They were both right.

It wasn’t just bad. It was the Worst. Election. Ever.

This is the one thing right before New Year’s I always look forward to. And Barry doesn’t disappoint.
