Ya Gotta Love Winter

So, here I sit, in the middle of the Mohave Desert, with rain, ice and snow along with winds of about 40 mph.
Meanwhile, there are 13 winter weather warnings in West and Midwest.
Hopefully, we can say the drought is over in the West.
But the liberals won't say that because it would go against their agenda of climate change.

ACLU: Terrorist Organization

From the Chicago Sun Times:
Authorities last year suggested Chicago’s spike in gun violence in 2015 was due to the “Ferguson effect” — cops afraid to do their jobs because of the scrutiny following the shooting of a black teenager by a white officer in 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri.
But with Chicago now plagued with an even steeper rise in fatal shootings in January, compared with the same period of 2015, street cops are offering a new reason: the “ACLU effect.”
They say the Chicago Police Department’s pact with the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois to monitor police stops in greater detail is prompting officers to stop policing, leaving the streets to the criminals and leading to the spike in gun violence.
Starting in January, officers have been required to fill out two-page forms documenting every stop of a citizen for everything from traffic violations to investigative stops. They ask for much more information than the previous one-page “contact cards” officers filled out.
In interviews with officers and sergeants over the past month, a common theme has emerged: Cops say they have avoided making many of the stops they would have routinely done last year. They fear getting in trouble for stops later deemed to be illegal and say the new cards take too much time to complete. 
Meantime, January 2016 was the deadliest first month of the year since 2001, according to a Chicago Sun-Times review of homicide records. At least 50 murders were recorded through 6 a.m. Sunday — most the result of shootings on the West and South Sides.
The ACLU should be considered to be a terrorist organization.  Their liberal policies have caused more violent deaths in the United States than muslim terrorists, the KKK and other terror organizations in the United States.
They have put violent criminals on the street, their liberal policies have made America more violent and now, because they have gotten in bed with liberal politicians running liberal big cities, they have made cops afraid to their job, which causes more violence in these cities to continue.

Predictions For Iowa

Tomorrow, there will be a vote in Iowa for America's Next President.
My predictions:
On the Democrat side, Hillary wins with over 50% over the vote from the caucus.
Bernie Sanders will get about 40%
Martin O'Malley will get about 10%.
On the Republican side:
Donald Trump wins with about 25%.
Jeb Bush, because of his organization, comes in 2nd with about 15%.
Ted Cruz tanks with about 12%
No one else matters.
In about 3 weeks, none of these results will matter, just like Iowa.

Another Reason To Hate The Media

From the NY Daily News:
A Kentucky teen died in juvie hall after staffers used martial arts moves to restrain her — and it took jail workers 11 minutes to start CPR after they found her unresponsive, according to 911 audio.
Gynnya McMillen, 16, was found “cold” and not breathing in her cell at Elizabethtown’s Lincoln Village Juvenile Detention when a deputy arrived to take her to her Jan. 11 court date.
Jail staffers first called 911 nine minutes after the deputy arrived — and waited another two to start CPR, according to emergency dispatch recordings obtained by CBS.
The juvie staffers only started the resuscitation procedures after the emergency dispatcher asked.
“They want us to start CPR,” a jail nurse is heard saying to someone at the facility.
“Do y'all have a CPR protocol or do y'all need it?” the dispatcher asked about 10 seconds later.

“I'm new,” she said. “I can find out. I don't know.”
The detention center originally said that the teen had died in her sleep, but recently told the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting that a restraint had been applied to her during an incident the day before.
A spokeswoman for the state’s Department of Juvenile Justice said that McMillen refused to take off her sweatshirt for a booking photo, prompting the "Aikido restraint" by multiple guards.
Aikido is a form of Japanese martial art that allows a practitioner to defend him or herself without hurting their attacker. Since Aikido is a style of martial arts and not a specific move, it’s unclear exactly how the teen was restrained.
Michele Deitch, a juvenile justice expert at University of Texas at Austin, told CBS of the move’s motive, “As far as I'm concerned that is a completely inappropriate use of a restraint.
McMillen, who was brought in the morning of Jan. 10 for a misdemeanor assault in a domestic incident at her mother’s house, was discovered dead in a “sleeping position” the next day.
Juveniles at the center are supposed to be checked on by staff every 15 minutes, though McMillen was not given regular visual checks through the window in her cell, and could have gone unchecked for hours.
Guards also did not try to wake her up after she did not respond to verbal offers of food or a telephone call at 6:30 a.m., 8:17 a.m. and 8:53 a.m.
Staff only tried to get her out of bed when she was due for a court appearance about 10 a.m.
The detention center has placed one employee, Reginald Windham, on paid leave after he missed an unspecified number oof checks.
An preliminary autopsy gave no cause of death and said there were no signs of trauma or drug overdose.
Juveniles alone in cells are under constant surveillance at the Kentucky facility.
Coroner Dr. William Lee saw a recording of McMillen’s final night and told WDRB the last movement occurred about midnight.
The teen’s family has asked to see the video and also questioned the length of time it has taken for authorities to release information about the circumstances of their loved one’s death.
If you listen to the 911 call, the girl was already dead- she was stiff as rigor mortis had already sunk in, she was cold to the touch, had unresponsive eye pupils.. she was as dead as a dodo.
but, because the young girl was black, well, then, it must have been racial and because of that, the news had to be sensationalized. .

Does Iowa Really Matter?

Let's be honest, Iowa really is only important every 4 years.
Iowa really doesn't produce much, other that Ethanol, which we don't need.  Their major export might just be bacon, which of course, is big.
Their universities pretty much suck. 
They don't have major professional teams, they are minor league when it comes to car racing.
And living in snowbird country, I don't think I have never even met 1 person from Iowa in the 9 years living out west.
So, after the caucuses on Monday, Iowa will be irrelevant again. 
So, who cares who wins, comes in 2nd or even 3rd.
And the same can be said of New Hampshire.  In fact, they probably are even worse than Iowa.  What does New Hampshire produce?  Maple syrup trees?
Do they breed the Hampshire pig?
Again, another irrelevant state. 
Now, on Monday, when Iowa goes to vote, there will be a major snowstorm and maybe 100,000 people will vote, if that.  Yet, they are treated like gold by the politicians.
So, Iowa will vote and I really don't care.  New Hampshire will vote and who really cares?
But for the next week we will hear Iowa, Iowa, New Hampshire , New Hampshire.

If Only They Had ESP

Stupid Journalism 101.
From the LVRJ:
The man fatally stabbed Wednesday night east of the Stratosphere has been identified by the office of the Clark County Coroner.
Vensant Laudis Diaz, 41, was stabbed Wednesday night before being transported to University Medical Center where he later died, according to police. His death was ruled a homicide by the office of the Clark County Coroner.
Now, if they transported him before he was stabbed, he would still be alive.

Why The Zika Virus Really Matters

There is a new virus that is probably one of the biggest threats to the well being of the America's and more.
From the Guardian: The Zika virus outbreak in Latin America could be a bigger threat to global health than the Ebola epidemic that killed more than 11,000 people in Africa.
That is the stark claim of several senior health experts ahead of an emergency meeting of the World Health Organisation on Monday which will decide whether the Zika threat – which is linked to an alarming rise in cases of foetal deformation called microcephaly – should be rated a global health crisis.
“In many ways the Zika outbreak is worse than the Ebola epidemic of 2014-15,” said Jeremy Farrar, head of the Wellcome Trust. “Most virus carriers are symptomless. It is a silent infection in a group of highly vulnerable individuals – pregnant women – that is associated with a horrible outcome for their babies.”
There is no prospect of a vaccine for Zika at present, in contrast to Ebola, for which several are now under trial. “The real problem is that trying to develop a vaccine that would have to be tested on pregnant women is a practical and ethical nightmare,” added Mike Turner, head of infection and immuno-biology at the Wellcome Trust.
 With at least 80% of those infected showing no symptoms, tracking the disease is extremely difficult. The mosquito species that spreads Zika, Aedes aegypti, has been expanding its range over the past few decades. “It loves urban life and has spread across the entire tropical belt of the planet, and of course that belt is expanding as global warming takes effect,” added Farrar.
This virus is worse than most diseases.  With Ebola, cancer, heart conditions and such, well, those absolutely suck but the person who gets these diseases usually still have their mind and can live a decent life.  With Ebola, you get and die fairly quickly.
But with the Zika Virus, you will have a child who will be severely, profoundly mentally challenged for their entire life.  Most will have a mental age of maybe 0-2 years old their entire life.  They will need around the clock care to feed, change diapers, educate etc..  Many these kids will have to be fed through a tube because they are unable to swallow.  Most will never talk and even if they know a few words, it won't be enough to carry on a conversation.  These kids will never go to college, get married and many will be in wheelchairs.
They will cost society millions of dollars for each child, from birth to death to care for and educate them.  In the U.S., it will severely tax the Social Security system.  It will also strain the health care system and the special education in the United States.  And when their parents die, then they will need someone, and in many cases it will up to government, to care for them.
how do I know this?  Because I work with the severely disabled, and among those kids I work with, I have worked with many people with microcephaly and severe brain damage.
Brazil already has 4000 cases and that will cost Brazil billions of dollars for the kid's lifetime of care.
So, what can the United States do?
For starters, start restricting people who come into the U.S., especially pregnant women from areas/countries that have the Zika Virus.  Then, at the border, they have decontaminate everyone all property that comes into the U.S. and of course, clamp down on illegals who may be coming into the U.S.
I really, really hope that President Obama and his administration really take this seriously but from what I have read, they don't and because of this, the U.S. will be severely harmed.

Well, Duh

If you had a choice between being in a union and paying hundreds or thousands of dollars a year to support union big wigs or not joining a union and save money?
From jsonline, Milwaukee, WI:  Union membership in Wisconsin collapsed in 2015, falling well below the national average for the first time and thinning the ranks of the labor movement by tens of thousands of workers in one of its former bastions.
The number of dues-paying workers within the state’s labor groups has fallen steadily since GOP Gov. Scott Walker signed his signature legislation, 2011’s Act 10, which repealed most collective bargaining for most public workers. But new federal statistics show that trend intensified in 2015 after Walker and GOP lawmakers followed up on Act 10 by approving so-called right-to-work legislation last spring.
That measure blocked unions and private employers from reaching contracts that required workers to pay labor fees.
In 2015, 8.3% of Wisconsin workers, or 223,000 in all, were members of unions. That was down sharply from the 306,000 people, or 11.7% of the state’s workforce, who belonged to unions in 2014.

Bernie Sanders A Cheat And A Phony

From the Las Vegas Sun: Staffers from Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ campaign posed as Culinary Union workers to gain access to employee-only areas at several Strip hotels, the campaign has confirmed.
The union said Thursday morning that it had received multiple reports of the staffers accessing the employee dining rooms of at least four properties by wearing yellow union buttons. Thursday evening, Sanders’ campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, confirmed that campaign organizers had entered the dining rooms and said the campaign reminded staffers Thursday that the behavior was “not appropriate and that they should not do it again.”
“In addition, I have spoken with the political director of the Culinary Union to express the campaign’s regret at this having occurred and our support of the union’s fight for workers’ rights,” he said in a statement. “The political director was extremely gracious and we are glad to have this resolved.”
Sanders poses as some kind of righteous old man.
Guess he's not.

Damn, He's Everywhere

I was watching Spin City on Laff TV and who shows up on the show, but Donald Trump.
It's a conspiracy, I tell you, a conspiracy.
Trump is now buying air time on small TV stations.
Hillary Clinton tried to do the same thing, Laff TV didn't want to run the Addams Family reruns.

Las Vegas Raiders??

If there was a NFL team moving to Las Vegas, the Raiders probably would be the best team to do so.
From the LVRJ:
Casino giant Las Vegas Sands Corp. will lead a consortium of investors planning to build a $1 billion domed stadium on 42 acres near the University of Nevada, Las Vegas that would house the school's football team — and possibly a National Football League franchise.
Andy Abboud, Las Vegas Sands' senior vice president of government relations and community development, said Thursday that Las Vegas needs a modern stadium with at least 65,000 seats to drive additional tourism to Southern Nevada.
Mark Davis, owner of the Oakland Raiders, is scheduled to meet with Las Vegas Sands Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson, and team representatives are expected to tour the site Friday.
The NFL earlier this month rejected a Raiders move to Los Angeles. Abboud said Las Vegas Sands also has had conversations with officials from other NFL teams.
"We are moving forward with the stadium concept with or without an NFL team," Abboud said Thursday. "We see a lot more opportunities — conference championships, bowl games, NFL exhibition football, boxing, soccer, neutral site games, and music festivals. There is an entire segment out there."

Strange Police Going On's On I-40, In Mohave County

For the last 2 days, driving home from Lake Havasu to Yucca, about 5-15 miles inside of Arizona from California, the last 2 days, about 10 Arizona Highway Patrol officers have been pulling over trucks heading to California, left and right just before they go over the state line into Cali.
It makes me wonder why the Arizona cops are pulling trucks over just before they enter California and not stopping them while they are driving in the middle of Arizona?
Are the cops behind of their quotas and trucks are easy pickings?
Are they just harassing the truckers?
Just kind of strange.

Sounds Racist To Me

When will the racist brothers and sister of Barack, Loretta, Al and Jesse come to denounce this headline:
Delafield Legion preps for annual Coon Feed
Just FYI, my high school nickname was/is named the Coons.
And our gym bags were tagged with "Home of the Coons"
(of course, it means raccoons, not the racist version of the word "coon")

Bundy Arrested In Oregon

From KATU: KATU News has learned the leader of the armed occupation at Malheur Wildlife Refuge - Ammon Bundy - has been detained, along with at least eight other individuals Tuesday evening.
Officials said it all began with a traffic stop while Bundy and some of his followers were en route to a community meeting in John Day, about 70 miles away.
Shots were fired after FBI agents, Oregon State troopers and other law enforcement agencies made the stop. CNN reports its unclear who fired first.
Details of the arrest and confrontation remain unknown, but charges are pending related to the group's 25-day takeover of the wildlife refuge.
Bundy and about three dozen of other individuals occupied the wildlife refuge earlier this month after two local ranchers were sent to prison for setting fires on federal land.
Apparently, 2 people were shot and an air ambulance was on it's way to the scene, according to the Oregonian:
Be interested to see if this ends the occupation of a building on Federal land or will it make matters worse.
Of course, Bundy decided to leave the area and so he took the chance on leaving the compound and he lost.
Update from the Oregonian: One militant is dead and the top leaders of the refuge occupation are in police custody after law enforcement officials stopped vehicles Tuesday afternoon about 15 miles north of Burns.Ryan Bundy, 43, of Bunkerville, Nev., suffered a minor gunshot wound and was taken into custody in a highway stop conducted by the FBI and the Oregon State Police.
Also arrested were his brother, Ammon Bundy, 40, of Emmett, Idaho, and Ryan W. Payne, 32, of Anaconda, Mont., Brian Cavalier, 44, of Bunkerville, Nevada, and Shawna J. Cox, 59, of Kanab, Utah. They were charged with conspiracy to impede federal officers, a felony.
The identity of the person killed in the shootout was not released.
No details were immediately available about the dramatic finish to the free-roaming ways  of the militant leaders. The FBI has been in charge of the refuge occupation, but it wasn't immediately known which police agencies were involved in the arrest.

Trump To Fox: Buh Bye

I'm pretty sure Fox is on the phone with Trump right now begging, pleading and kissing his ass....errr ring to get the Donald to reconsider not going on the GOP on Fox tomorrow.
From the Washington Post: Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump says he will not attend a debate scheduled for Thursday night in Des Moines, an unexpected twist just days before voters here launch the election process.
"I probably won't be doing the debate. I'm going to have something else in Iowa," he said during a press conference on Tuesday afternoon.
After the press conference, Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski confirmed to The Washington Post that Trump would "definitely not" participate in Thursday's Fox News debate.
“He’s definitely not participating in the Fox News debate," Lewandowski said. "His word is his bond."
Fox challenged Trump and Trump fought back.
While I watch Fox News for the news and a couple of shows on the weekends, I don't watch any of their opinion shows, especially Megan Kelly.  She's just a blonde bimbo to me, along with all the other blonde or long haired anorexic women they have on Fox.  All they are, are entertainers, nothing more and nothing less.
Now, Ted Cruz did challenge Trump to a debate on Mark Levin Show.  It will be interesting to see what happens with that.

RIP Abe Vigoda

I bet you thought he was already dead.
From the Miami Herald:
Character actor Abe Vigoda, whose leathery, sunken-eyed face made him ideal for playing the over-the-hill detective Phil Fish in the 1970s TV series "Barney Miller" and the doomed Mafia soldier in "The Godfather," died Tuesday at age 94.
Vigoda's daughter, Carol Vigoda Fuchs, told The Associated Press that Vigoda died Tuesday morning in his sleep at Fuchs' home in Woodland Park, New Jersey. The cause of death was old age. "This man was never sick," Fuchs said.
Vigoda worked in relative obscurity as a supporting actor in the New York theater and in television until Francis Ford Coppola cast him in the 1972 Oscar-winning "The Godfather." Vigoda played Sal Tessio, an old friend of Vito Corleone's (Marlon Brando) who hopes to take over the family after Vito's death by killing his son Michael Corleone (Al Pacino). But Michael anticipates that Sal's suggestion for a "peace summit" among crime families is a setup and the escorts Sal thought were taking him to the meeting turn out to be his executioners.
"Tell Mike it was only business," Sal mutters to consigliere Tom Hagen (Robert Duvall) as he's led away.
The great success of the film and "The Godfather Part II" made his face and voice, if not his name, recognizable to the general public and led to numerous roles, often as hoodlums.
But it was his comic turn in "Barney Miller," which starred Hal Linden and ran from 1975 to 1982, that brought Vigoda's greatest recognition.
He liked to tell the story of how he won the role of Detective Fish. An exercise enthusiast, Vigoda had just returned from a five-mile jog when his agent called and told him to report immediately to the office of Danny Arnold, who was producing a pilot for a police station comedy.
Arnold remarked that Vigoda looked tired, and the actor explained about his jog. "You know, you look like you might have hemorrhoids," Arnold said. "What are you — a doctor or a producer?" Vigoda asked. He was cast on the spot. really enjoyed his acting Barney Miller, one of the best comedy police shows of all time.
Update: changed their web site from "no" to "yes" today.

Umm, That's Not How It Works, Tom

Damn, I feel like I am a Hillary shill tonight, but I call them as I see them.
From NewsMax, via Drudge: The FBI is ready to indict Hillary Clinton and if its recommendation isn't followed by the U.S. attorney general, the agency's investigators plan to blow the whistle and go public with their findings, former U.S. House Majority leader Tom DeLay tells Newsmax TV.
"I have friends that are in the FBI and they tell me they're ready to indict," DeLay said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"They're ready to recommend an indictment and they also say that if the attorney general does not indict, they're going public."
Clinton is under FBI investigation for her use of a private server to conduct confidential government business while she was secretary of state. But some Republicans fear any FBI recommendation that hurts Clinton will be squashed by the Obama administration.

Read Latest Breaking News from
The FBI does not indict anybody.  They can make recommendations to  prosecutors or testify before a grand jury but that's it.
While I hope an indictment happens as Clinton has almost certainly has broken the law, you also have to be honest in the reporting.

Breaking News: Hillary Chokes And Takes Drugs

Hillary chokes, probably from a dry throat and then takes a throat lozenge.
I love the silly season of presidential politics.
I don't like Hillary but to make fun of her choking is way too funny.
Hell, I've choked like this more than a few times, so why is this news, especially from ABC?

Predictions For 2016

I have been doing predictions for the past several years, with the exception of last year.  I usually do better than the talking heads or writers who are paid to follow the news and make predictions.  In 2014, I had about a 64% accuracy rate:

Bronocos VS Panthers in Superbowl 50

So, the new will lay the old in Super Bowl 50.
Cam Newton vs Payton Manning will be the quarterbacks- Newton, young and Manning old.
Unless the point spread is 20 or more points for Carolina, I would bet my next paycheck on the Carolina Panthers.  I bet  boxer Floyd Maryweather, who is known to put up a large amount of money on Super Bowls, will put up about $1,000,000 on the Panthers, if a casino will take the bet.
I would also bet the over unless the line is about 65 points.
I've watched the Panthers several times this year and they look to be very tough and truly the best team in the league right now.  In addition, the game is in San Francisco and the weather is similar to Carolina as opposed to Denver.
So, Carolina has the youth and the only thing that will trip up the Panthers is the Super Bowl hype.

New York City Wimps: Part 2

A man walks in heavy snow through Central Park.A man walks in heavy snow through Central Park.
Heavy snow?  Hell you can see at least a mile and see the tops of the buildings.
Hell, my farts and poops create more fog than this.
And the story tells about a nurse who walked a mile in the snow to go to work while about 60 other employees called in sick for the day.
Not much a work ethic for those calling in, unless they live in another borough of NYC.
NYC ought to be ashamed that they are such wimps, from the governor and mayor on down.
And yes, I have been several snowstorms than this and didn't wimp out.

New York City: Home Of The Wimps

In New York City (NYC) you have the Home of the Finest (NYPD-police officers) Home of the Bravest (FDNY-firefighters) Home of the Boldest (corrections workers) and Home of the Strongest (Sanitation-garbage men/women).  Now you can the next title to NYC: Home of the Wimps.
Today, NYC is being hit with a big snow storm and blizzard they have gotten close to 30 inches of snow but from I can see there are no huge 10 foot drifts because of the winds.
And the Mayor and governor of New York have decided that they know better and banned drivers on the city's streets.  And if you are caught driving the cops said they will arrest you and throw you in jail.
Now, it's best if you didn't drive, but if you look at the TV coverage, not all of the streets are impassable but the busier streets are passable.
And there is a difference  between a Prius and a Ford 250, a Chevy Silverado or a Toyota Tundra, trucks that can go through just about everything.
So, the nanny politicians have decided that they know better than owners of 4 wheel drive trucks and cars that can travel down the main streets. 
But if an idiot driver does get stuck, tow the car or truck and fine the driver and that alone will keep many people off the streets.
So, thanks to the Mayor and Governor of NYC and New York state, NYC is now Home of the Wimps.

Gee, Another False Claim Of Police Harassment

If a white thug did this to a Black police officer, the white thug would have been fired and probably charged with perjury with a hate crime enhancer.
From Fire Rescue 1: A fire captain and firefighter are under fire after a false report that claimed a police officer created a sense of fear and cussed them out during a traffic stop.
Fox5Atlanta reported that Stone Mountain (Ga.) Police Sergeant Stephen Floyd was patrolling a street when he spotted a car with an expired license plate. He ordered the driver, DeKalb County Fire and Rescue Capt. Terrell Davis, to pull over.
"Do I need to call my chief or supervisor, your chief or Dr. Alexander?" Capt. Davis said.
Dr. Cedric Alexander is DeKalb County's public safety director. Floyd ignores him and heads back to his squad to write a ticket, where he meets Krystal Cathcart, another DeKalb Fire and Rescue employee.
"Do we need to call Dr. Alexander?" Cathcart asks.
"Call Dr. Alexander for what?" Sgt. Floyd responds.
Cathcart later filed an official complaint that Sgt. Floyd created "a sense of fear" at the scene, cussed her out by telling her to "back the f*** up" or he will throw her in the "back of my squad car," according to the report.
Capt. Davis backed up her written complaint saying Sgt. Floyd was "unprofessional, belligerent and disrespectful."
When Cathcart filed her complaint, she didn’t know Sgt. Davis had a dashboard camera on his car and a body camera on his chest. The complaint and video tell different stories.
Cathcart: "Hi officer, is there a problem?"
Sgt. Floyd: "How you doing?"
Sgt. Floyd: "You can wait over there."
Cathcart: "Why?"
Sgt. Floyd: "Because I asked you to. This traffic stop had nothing to do."
Cathcart: "I can stand right here."
Sgt. Floyd: "No you cannot stand right there, and it's the last time I'm going to ask you or I'm going to put you in the back of my car."
Cathcart: "We'll call Dr. Alexander."
Sgt. Floyd: "That's right, call Dr. Alexander, thank you very much."

The police department showed the video to Cathcart, who later changed her story and recanted the error of Sgt. Floyd using profanity. Officials later found Cathcart and Capt. Davis "less than truthful in their written and recorded statements," according to the report.
These 2 racist black firefighters gambled that that the police officer did not have a camera on him.  They gambled and lost.
If this were a white thug going after a Black police officer, they would have charged with perjury and possibly a hate crime just to get out of a "fix it" ticket.

Don't Let The Door Hit Your Big Fat Butt On Your Out

From the Washington Times:
“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg on Wednesday said a possible Donald Trump presidency signals that “maybe it’s time” for her to move out of the country.
Ms. Goldberg was responding to a claim by fellow co-host Joy Behar that the Republican presidential front-runner “has a lot of Democratic tendencies, if you look at his record.”
“Listen, he can be whatever party he wants to be,” Ms. Goldberg interjected, according to a clip obtained by Breitbart News. “What he can’t be is he can’t be the guy that says it’s your fault stuff isn’t working. That’s not the president I want. Find a way to make stuff work.”
“But you can’t say, ‘Oh, you’re Lebanese or you’re black or you’re Mexican or you’re a woman.’ Stop blaming everybody. Let’s fix the crap. Let’s just fix it,” she continued. “And if you can fix it, I will listen to what you have to say. The minute you start pointing and saying that person is a rapist and a murderer, it pisses me off because I’ve been part of that when they just use a blanket statement to talk about black people or when they use a blanket statement to talk about white people or women or any other group.
“I don’t think that’s America. I don’t want it to be America. Maybe it’s time for me to move, you know,” she added.
The United States would be a much better place without Whoopie not in here. 
May I suggest that perhaps a fitting place for Whoopie to go to is South Africa?

Cue The Tin Foil Hats

From the Sheboygan Press:
People reports today that convicted killer Steven Avery's mom told Boston radio station WAAF this week that Halbach's bone fragments were planted on the Avery property in northwestern Manitowoc County. She also dropped this gem:
"I don't think she's even dead. I don't think so."
Netflix has done a disservice in sponsoring and airing this one sided story.
Steven Avery is a thug murderer and I hope he dies a slow and painful death while in prison.
Netflix has been irresponsible for their fantasy show that now has the victim, Theresa Halbach, being portrayed as still being alive or that she was responsible for her own death, according to some crazies who watched the Netflix non-story.

Free Parking On The Las Vegas Strip Coming To An End?

From the LVRJ:
MGM Resorts International will break from a long-standing Las Vegas tradition and begin charging customers to park at the company's Strip resorts as part of a $90 million strategy to "expand and enhance" the company's parking infrastructure.
The parking fees will go into effect sometime between April and June the company said in a Friday statement, which also announced plans for a $54-million, 3,000-space parking structure MGM will construct near the northwest corner of the Excalibur.
The parking structure will help serve visitor growth and attendance at the company's nearby resorts and entertainment venues, including the 20,000-seat T-Mobile Arena, The Park retail and restaurant complex, and the new 5,000-seat Theater at Monte Carlo.
Construction of the new parking facility is scheduled to begin later this spring with completion scheduled in the second quarter of 2017. An MGM spokesman said customers using the new garage will be able to access the T-Mobile Arena and other nearby locations via a short walk along Frank Sinatra Drive, which runs underneath Tropicana Boulevard.
In some ways, I don't blame MGM. 
There is a little known secret among locals.  If you fly out of the Las Vegas airport, you can park your car at the MGM and then take a taxi or hotel shuttle to the airport for a few dollars.  You don't have to pay for parking and pay only a few dollars for the taxi or shuttle.  It's a great deal and MGM just to get their share of the parking dollars.

One reason Why There Are No Blacks Nominated For An Oscar

I am not a movie person, I just wait for the movie to come out either on TV or if I really like the movie, maybe I will buy a CD of it.
Well, now, a few Black actors are raising a stink that no Black actors were nominated for an Oscar, so to further show that they are serious they have decided that they will not attend the Oscar ceremony on Sunday.
And the world was unmoved.
They say that "Straight Outta Of Compton" is a classic and should have been nominated for an Oscar somewhere.
Apparently, they forget that thug Suge Knight committed a murder that was either directly or indirectly related to the movie.
From the LA Times:   On a film set in Leimert Park, an actor playing rap mogul Suge Knight angrily peeled out of a parking lot in a Jeep. The film, "Straight Outta Compton," tells the origin story of N.W.A and its famed members, including Ice Cube and Dr. Dre.
The fictional reenactment on the set late last fall took on eerie overtones this week after Suge Knight's arrest on suspicion of homicide. Police allege he ran over two men with his truck, killing one, Thursday following an altercation in connection with the film.
So, do you honestly think that the voters for the Oscars are going to nominate a film that was indirectly, at best, involved in a murder involving a thug named Suge Knight?
So, the Black entertainers who don't want to show up for the Oscars, it's not a big deal and they won't be missed.
And the Oscar voters did the right thing by not nominating "Straight Outta Compton", a thug movie that involved a big thug, Suge Knight who ran another person down in cold blood.

Remember When?

Image result for image+home alone
One of very excuses for liberals to support President Obama was that the stock market was doing really well and that translated into a robust economy. (Yes, Jamie, I'm looking at you)
Well, now, the stock market is tanking big time, and it sits at 15,988 which is down from 18,312 in May of 2015.  That's a drop of  $2324 from the Dow Jones Industrial average and several trillions of dollars left the stock market and a drop of 13%.
So, now, what are some the reasons why we should support President Obama?
And please, don't use the fake unemployment rates.

Wal-Mart Closing Hundreds Of stores

From the LVRJ:
Wal-Mart Stores Inc said on Friday that it would pull the plug on its smallest store format, Wal-Mart Express, and close 269 locations as it contends with higher costs in its home market of the United States and disappointing results overseas.
The move includes Wal-Mart's largest-ever single culling in the United States, where the company is closing 154 stores. The other 115 stores are in Latin America, including 60 in Brazil.
The list of planned closings from Wal-Mart Stores Inc. includes a Supercenter at 4350 N. Nellis Blvd. in Las Vegas. According to the statement from Wal-Mart, the store will close Sunday.
A co-manager at the store, who identified himself only as Sean, referred questions from the Review-Journal to Wal-Mart media relations.
The world's largest retailer said it hoped to transfer many of the 10,000 U.S. and 6,000 Latin American workers in the closed stores to other locations.
Wal-Mart's earnings have been under pressure due to last year's decision to raise entry-level wages as well as higher investments aimed at closing the gap online with Inc. At the same time, Wal-Mart is struggling overseas, where a strong U.S. dollar reduces the value of local sales.
The closings come three months after Chief Executive Officer Doug McMillon disclosed plans to review global operations and shut underperforming stores. Friday's announcement marks the first step in that restructuring effort.
Wal-Mart said the closures represented less than 1 percent of its global revenue. The biggest cuts are in the United States, including all 102 Wal-Mart Express stores.
At 12,000 to 15,000 square feet, Express stores are less than one-tenth the size of a typicalWalmart Supercenter. The format had been in pilot since 2011 but did not deliver the desired results.
Moody's retail analyst Charlie O'Shea described the closures as a long-overdue "pruning."
"I've always wondered why it's taken so long to cull the U.S. store base because they really haven't done much of it over the past several years," O'Shea said.
Wal-Mart said the move would reduce earnings by 20 cents to 22 cents a diluted share, with nearly all of that to be booked in the fourth quarter ending this month. In November, it forecast a full-year profit of $4.50 to $4.65.
The company's shares fell 2.6 percent to $61.39.
The store Wal-Mart is closing (on Sunday, not much notice given) is a ghetto store, though it is right across the street from Nellis Air Force Base.  They have had a murder there along with other violent crimes over the years.  The people who live in that area will be hurt as there is no other big box store several miles.  As for the employees, there will be no problem getting them into other Wal-Mart stores in the Las Vegas area.

Those New York City Media Values

Sen. Ted Cruz, a Republican who is running for president and is probably the most consistent conservative person in the GOP field has been under fire since Thursday when said that Donald Trump had those NYC liberal abortion, gay marriage etc.
And the NYC media has had a field day with the quote.
So, let's see what a moral value the New York City media has.
From the NY Daily News: A Manhattan teenager died Friday as she tried to cross between rooftops in Hell’s Kitchen, slipping and falling six stories into a narrow sleeve between the buildings, authorities said.
Natalia Jimenez, 15, plummeted down an airshaft that separates two apartment buildings on 10th Ave. near W. 48th St. at around 4:30 p.m., police said.
The teen had been scampering over rooftops with two female friends, both 14, cops said. But she lost her footing when she tried to climb a slight incline onto the ledge at 699 10th Ave., police sources said. Witnesses heard a loud smash — before seeing Jimenez’s body at the bottom of the gritty shaft.
“It was a big thump,” said Leslie Rodriguez, who lives in the back of the building where the teen fell. “I thought someone had slammed the door. I ran down and saw someone lying there. She was in a crouch. It was horrible".
And the following picture was posted:
Agatha Mangano, mother of Natalya Jimenez, speaks to the media outside her home on Friday after tragically losing her daughter.
So, this poor young girl is killed in an accident at 4:30 EST and the story with the victim's name and a picture of slime reporters was posted before 11:00 EST and quite possibly much earlier.
The body wasn't even cold when the scum media goes after the victim's mom and family.
And no, in most media markets, other than an initial story, most media don't publish the victim's name or ask the family for interviews for at least a day after the accident.
In Chicago, where murders are a daily occurrence, they don't shove their microphones and cameras into the victims faces within an hour or 2 after the murder.
So, Ted Cruz is right, the NYC media and it's liberal politicians are worse than pond scum with mosquitoes and the media and politicians have a different set standards than the rest of the country.
That doesn't mean most of the residents of NYC are bad but their political and media leaders are and that is what Ted Cruz was talking about.

RIP Alan Rickman

Professor Severus Snape by VaLeNtInE-DeViAnT
Yes, quite a few celebrities have passed away- Pat Harrington, Natalie Cole, Celine Dion's husband and others and now, Alan Rickman, Professor Snape on the Harry Potter movies has died.
From the LVRJ: 
Alan Rickman, the British actor with the unforgettable voice who played the brooding Professor Severus Snape in the "Harry Potter" films as well as "Die Hard" villain Hans Gruber, died Thursday after a short battle with cancer, according to his representatives at Independent Talent Group.
He was 69.
"There are no words to express how shocked and devastated I am to hear of Alan Rickman's death," "Potter" author J.K. Rowling tweeted Thursday.
Fans had lost "a great talent," she said, and his family "have lost a part of their hearts."
Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry Potter in the films, posted a statement on Google+ calling Rickman "one of the greatest actors I will ever work with" and one of the nicest, as well.
"Alan was extremely kind, generous, self-deprecating and funny," Radcliffe wrote. "And certain things obviously became even funnier when delivered in his unmistakable double-bass."
A smooth-voiced London native, Rickman worked on stage with the Royal Shakespeare Company and in UK television projects before earning his first film role as German terrorist Gruber, opposite Bruce Willis' John McClane, in 1988's "Die Hard."
He had been in Hollywood only two days, but he almost didn't take the role.
"I read it, and I said, 'What the hell is this? I'm not doing an action movie,' " he recounted in a 2015 interview with the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
It ended up being one of the most memorably villainous roles in film history.
In the 2015 interview, Rickman recounted that he helped shape the role, despite being a novice film actor hired because he would work cheap.
After being fitted to wear a militaristic outfit as leader of a band of terrorists, Rickman suggested that perhaps Gruber could wear a suit, affect an American accent and pretend to be a civilian trapped in the building for a scene with Willis' cop character.
He said he was told, "You'll wear what you're told."

That's Not Funny

From the NY Daily News: A celebration broke out at a California nursing home after a worker was told she was one of the Powerball winners — but it turned out to be a prank, relatives said Thursday.
The heartwarming story unraveled hours after a manager at the Park Avenue Health & Wellness Center in Pomona told reporters the staffer was a newly-minted millionaire.
David Levy, the nursing home’s administrator, said the facility was abuzz Wednesday night after the woman received a call from her son saying she was the winner.
The nurse’s son went so far as to send her a picture of what he said was the winning ticket, Levy said.
"It's a joke. It's a my brother," the 56-year-old nurse's daughter Jennifer told the Daily News from her house in Pomona on Thursday evening.
"It's embarrassing. This is too much for us," she said, visibly upset by all the fuss.
I'm sorry, this was not even close to a prank.  And the fact the mom fell for it, and was not told is even more cruel.
My guess is that the son won't be welcomed to any family dinners and/or holidays.
Reminds me of this from Family Guy:

Enough Already

So, Donald Trump and some democrats are caught up whether Ted Cruz is eligible to be president because he was born in Canada.
Simply put, there is more evidence that President Obama is not eligible to be president than there is with Cruz.
Cruz's mom is a citizen of the United states and she was when Ted was born, in Alberta.
There is nothing to debate. except I the small minds of Donald Trump, the media, Geraldo Rivera and other cuckoo's.
And, unfortunately, because Cruz is a lot closer to winning the nomination than almost everyone in the GOP, except for Trump, the liberals will go after Cruz on anything that even remotely appears to be scandal because the liberals are very scared of Cruz.
Look for more BS issues to come against Cruz.

Typical Democrat At Stae Of The Union

Iranians Kidnap U.S. Sailors

I think it is safe to say that the Iranians have kidnapped 10 U.S. Navy sailors.
From Fox News:
Ten U.S. Navy sailors were detained on Tuesday by Iranian Revolutionary Guard forces when one of their boats apparently became disabled in the Persian Gulf.
A senior defense official tells Fox News that there is no timeline for the sailors' release but that it would not be before daybreak.
Pentagon officials said the incident occurred near Farsi Island in the Gulf. They said one of their two small boats had mechanical trouble, causing one or both to run aground. The sailors were then picked up by Iran and taken to the island. But it is unclear where they are now.
The boats were moving between Kuwait and Bahrain at the time, and the Pentagon briefly lost contact with the crews.
A senior Obama administration official told Fox News that Iranian authorities have assured the United States of the sailors' “safety and well-being” and said they “will promptly be allowed to continue their journey.”
Well, it's been more than a few hours and we don't when exactly when the sailors are getting out.
Plus, both boats broke down at the same time?  Highly doubtful, so what really happened?
And do you really think this would have happened under Reagan or Bush 41?  Highly doubtful, but under Obama, the Iranians just laugh at him and through him, they laugh at the United States.
Just another disgraceful event in a long line of disgraceful events in Obama's presidency.

Worlds Shortest Speech

Tonight is the State of the union speech given by President Obama.
They say it will list Obama's accomplishments.
The speech should be this:
"I sucked as President".
Instead, those who have the balls to listen will probably be treated to Obama giving himself praise for everything under the sun and mentioning himself no les than 1,564 times in a 3 hour speech.

Booo To Ringling Brothers Circus

I'd say boycott these fools.
From Fox News:
The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is ending its elephant acts a year and a half early, and will retire all of its touring elephants in May.
The circus's parent company, Feld Entertainment, told The Associated Press exclusively that all of the iconic elephants will be permanently retired to the company's 200-acre Center for Elephant Conservation in central Florida. There are 11 elephants on tour with the circus.
"They'll be joining the rest of the herd," said Alana Feld, Ringling's executive vice president and show producer, who is also part of the family that owns Feld Entertainment. Feld owns the largest herd of Asian elephants in North America. In addition to those still touring, there are 29 elephants on the property now, and two additional animals are on breeding loans to zoos, Feld said.
So, Ringling Brothers gave into political correctness from a bunch of liberal PETA type thugs who have decided that their way is the only way.
Many years ago, I took some severely disabled adults to the circus and they got to ride an elephant- something they never have never will again.  And Ringling Brothers now makes sure those with disabilities may never see an elephant up close and personal.
Boycott Ringling Brothers after all, there is not much else to see.

Nevada/Arizona Lottery Fever

This picture was taken outside the Chevron gas station about 25 miles inside the Arizona border, down Hwy 93 from Boulder City, Henderson and Las Vegas.
There were about 100 people in this line, about 150 at the Last Stop restaurant/gas station, across the Highway from Chevron and about 75 people at Rosie's Diner next to Chevron.
About 2 miles down the road is a Texaco gas station, also selling Powerball tickets and there were about 8 people in line.
When I mentioned this to the people at Chevron, that there was no waiting at Texaco, all of 0 people moved to go to Texaco, even though the wait time was at least 30-45 minutes.
These people are too stupid to win the lottery.
But thank you to all the Nevadans who are helping Arizona by buying tickets here and helping keep out taxes down just a little.
Meanwhile, when buying my nightly beer at a Maverick gas station, 1 gentleman just got done buying about 150 tickets, or $300 worth of tickets.
I look at it this way, if it is meant to be, it doesn't matter if you buy 5 tickets or 200 tickets, so while it lessens the odds a little, it's a waste of time and money.
And to top it off, the cashier wasn't paying attention to the lottery ticket paper roll and the tickets got all jammed and crinkled up.  It's not like you can void the tickets and rerun them.  From what I understand, either the customer has to accept them or the store has to eat the tickets.  I might be wrong, but that's what I understand

Sunday, January 10, 2016


From the Chicago Tribune: Two would-be robbers who were fatally shot at a liquor store in the Gresham neighborhood Saturday night have been identified as a 15-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy, authorities said.
Keshawn Marzette, 15, of the 8300 block of South Throop Street, and William Larson, 17, of the same address, were pronounced dead on the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Autopsies Sunday determined both died of multiple gunshot wounds and their deaths were classified as homicides, the office said.
The two were shot to death by a store employee about 8:30 p.m. when they tried to rob Z&S Food & Liquor in the 1300 block of West 87th Street, sources said.
Citing preliminary information, authorities said two people walked into the store, and one of them hopped over the counter.
That person hit the clerk standing behind the counter, while the other remained in front of the counter, authorities said.
Meanwhile, a relative of the store owner heard a commotion upstairs and saw the robbery suspects from a stairwell, authorities said.
He pulled out a gun and opened fire on the two, killing them, authorities said. At least one of them was armed with a gun.
Family members at the scene identified one of the suspects as Larson, 17.
Investigators were trying to determine if the teens had robbed at least two other stores in the area not long before trying to rob the liquor store.
Sadly, if these thugs are committing possibly numerous armed robberies at such a young age, society is probably better off with the thugs dead as opposed to being in and out of prison for their entire life along with them spreading their sperm to 1 or more women and society paying for those kids.
So, good shooting to the store employee and just remember, if Obama and other gun nuts had their way, this store employee would not be allowed to legally to have their gun to protect themselves.
On another note from the Tribune: Someone at the liquor store in the immediate aftermath of the shooting had taken a photo of the two bodies: one whose face is visible, eyes and mouth open; another in blood-spattered jeans next to a thick pool of blood. A gun lies on a mat next to racks of pork rinds and bottled water.
The cops should show these pictures to every thug in Chicago and other cities to show the possibility what can happen if the thugs decide to rob or act like thugs in other ways.

Conspiracy #2: Powerball

So, no one won the Powerball lottery when the Powerball went from $500,000,000 to $975,000,000 from drawing to drawing.
That means approximately 237,500,000 tickets were sold.
The odds of wining is 262,000,000 to 1.
That means there were about 24,500,000 unused combinations + duplicates and about 237,000,000 combinations-duplicates, about a 10-90 ratio.
So, was the game rigged so they can get the worlds largest lottery jackpot in the world?
Probably not but...
From the Washington Post:
Those sales have soared despite a scandal that rocked the organization that runs the game — a five-year-old investigation into jackpot fixing in one state that grew to include at least four others....
In the end, a Multi-State Lottery Association security expert was convicted of fraud and sentenced to a decade in prison and the man who ran Powerball since it began was quietly put on leave.
Here’s a rundown of the scandal that has been all but forgotten in the wake of Powerball fever.
In December 2010, a man walked into a Quik Trip convenience store on Des Moines’ north side and bought what would become the winning ticket in a Hot Lotto draw with a $16.5 million jackpot, according to court documents.
The prize was unclaimed for nearly a year. In November 2011, a Canadian man contacted the Iowa Lottery claiming to be the winner. A month later, he said he was not the winner himself, but represented the anonymous winner. Later that month, a New York lawyer came forward to claim the prize for a Belize-based trust. No one involved could provide the basic details of the winner, information required by Iowa law. Eventually, the attorney withdrew the claim to the jackpot and the money went back to the states where the tickets were sold.
Investigators never gave up on the curious case and, three years later, released surveillance footage of a hooded man buying the winning ticket in the hopes that someone would recognize him. Several people identified him as Edward Tipton, Multi-State Lottery Association’s former security director.
Tipton was charged with fraud almost exactly one year ago, on Jan. 15, 2015. Investigators argued that Tipton was able to secure the winning ticket for himself through self-destructing software he installed on lottery computers, according to the Des Moines Register. Tipton then allegedly filtered the ticket through a friend in Texas.
Ultimately, he was found guilty of two counts of fraud last July and sentenced to 10 years in prison last September.
Was Powerball rigged, I doubt it, but the odds of Powerball being 100% honest, well, it's probably the same odds as winning the jackpot for Powerball.
