Via Billy

Just amazing! :) 

If there’s anyone on earth who can heal Nancy Pelosi’s bitterness and “negative attitudes,” it might be the Dalai Lama.

During a Congressional visit to Dharamsala, North India, on Tuesday, the House Minority Leader admitted the Dalai Lama was praying for her to rid herself of her negativity.

Flying coffins – the planes that carried the Airborne

Via Cousin Joel

The invasion of Normandy involved a wide variety of planes from heavy bombers that softened up German defenses through fighter that harried enemy troops on the ground to transport planes. As part of our watch-along of Band of Brothers, today we'll look at the aircraft the Airborne and their British counterparts used for deployment.

Refighting the “Civil” War


SALTA, ARGENTINA – Public life is always a hoot…

People of sound mind and reasonable judgment in their personal lives take on characters full of unwarranted confidence and intolerant insistence in public.

The couple whose son has a “drug problem” wants the government to start a nationwide treatment program.

The guy who can’t get his town sanitation department to pick up the trash in front of his house wants to clean up a government on the other side of the world.

The woman who is not sure she will need an umbrella is convinced the planet is warming up.
It’s always easier to solve someone else’s problem than your own. That’s one of the great advantages of living overseas: Public life is full of other people’s problems.

Imagine if a group of Americans proposed to abolish the First Amendment, take away your favorite monuments, or introduce devil worship at your church.

You would be outraged.

Is Trey Gowdy about to become the new FBI director?

Via Billy

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, at a news conference with fellow committee members where they addressed the findings in their final report, on Capitol Hill in Washington, June 28, 2016. Ending one of the longest, costliest and most bitterly partisan congressional investigations in history, the committee issued its report Tuesday finding no new evidence of culpability or wrongdoing by Hillary Clinton in the 2012 attacks in Libya that left four Americans dead.

With James Comey ousted as FBI director, President Donald Trump will have an opportunity to select a replacement for a new 10-year term. The FBI in the interim will be led by Comey's top deputy, Andrew McCabe. But Trump is likely to reach outside the bureau to find someone to run the storied law enforcement agency.

"The FBI is one of our nation's most cherished and respected institutions, and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement," Trump said in a statement issued by the White House.

Here are some possible candidates:

Sexbots: Sally Cone Hits the Dating Scene: Kind of Weird, but Maybe….

 You could do worse.

Oh Lord, where is my Haldol? Recently I saw online a documentary on sex robots. The reporteress, a short-haired woman seething with quiet indignation,  Viewed  With Alarm the very idea. Progress is rapid on these love assistants, she said. They move. Some do, anyway. They talk, but not too much. Before long they will have skin-temperature silicone. Today we have all those deplorable men sitting home, lonely and isolated, choking their chickens and pondering suicide. Soon they will instead be rocking and rolling with Robo-Barbie.  This worried her. She said.

If this be true, the why, one wonders, do men want sexbots? Aren’t there already women all over the place at skin temperature?  Sez me, it’s because women have lived too long in a monopoly economy and so let down quality. It used to be that men had jobs and money, and women had that, so they married to let each get some of what the other  had. The woman had to be agreeable as a selling point. 

Now women have jobs and don’t need men, or to be pleasant. Some are nice anyway, but it’s no longer a design feature. Of course they often end up old and alone with a cat somewhere on upper Connecticut Avenue, but they don’t figure this out until too late. Anyway, they stopped being agreeable. They learned from feminists that everything wrong in their lives was the fault of men.

A North Carolina school district is canceling a Hamlet high school’s yearbook after administrators noticed several senior quotes, including a President Trump campaign slogan, that were deemed inappropriate.

“‘Build that Wall’ - Donald Trump,” one female student’s quote read, according to a photo of the yearbook published by The News & Observer.

School district spokeswoman Ashley-Michelle Thublin said it was that quote and several others that make it into the Richmond Early College High School yearbook that were considered too controversial, The Associated Press reported.

A photo of the “build that wall” quote circulated on social media, with some users accusing it of being racist and offensive to minority students.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Rips Dems Over Faux Comey Outrage: ‘The People Who Are in the Dark Today Are Democrats’

Via Billy

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is filling in for Press Secretary, Sean Spicer while he is away on Naval Reserve Duty. She brought the smack down to the liberal press pool today when she read quotes by prominent Democrats, who not too long ago were calling for Comey’s head on a platter.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders: “If we want to talk about contradicting statements, and people that were maybe in the dark, how about the Democrats? Let’s read a few of them…Here’s what Democrats said not too long ago about Comey…
Harry Reid said Comey should resign and be investigated by the Senate.
Senator Chuck Schumer said, “I don’t have confidence in him any longer.”
Senator Bernie Sanders said it would not be a bad thing for the American people if Comey resigned.
If you wanna talk about people in the dark, our story is consistent. The President is the only person that can fire the Director of the FBI…the people that are in the dark today, are the Democrats.”

If J.C. Hanna had his way, New Orleans' Confederate monuments would stay right where they are.
"I don't want to see them move, period," said Hanna, commander of the Louisiana division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. "I don't know of anywhere else in New Orleans they could be put where they'd have a place of respect. I really don't."
