Illinois Steel Town: Trump’s Tariffs Secure 800 New Jobs for Previously Laid-Off American Workers

How Pie-Throwing Became a Comedy Standard  One Sarah Brener owned a variety store there, but she also supplied the studio with its pies. Sometimes, they were delicious. Charlie Chaplin said that Brener’s pies were the best in town (he once gave her one of his trademark canes as a memento, too.) But often, they had to be specially formulated for films. The ones Keystone used were “a special ballistic version of the pie, with heavy-duty pastry and especially slurpy ‘custard.’” As pie fights in film grew more elaborate, Brener’s bakery was soon making nothing else.

Without much exertion one will find an increasing migration on the left to the newer Hitlerian Calendar. The fundamental premise of this model is that the only events in history occurred in Germany between 1923 and 1945. Thus every year is one of these years, with time moving not linearly but circuitously. Under this temporal scheme events like the Haitian massacre, Barbary slavers, Red Terror, Mao’s 20 million rotting corpses, and Pol Pot’s soccer field of skulls never happened, as they would violate the similar laws of Hitlerian Physics. These hold that only Hitler may occupy any given space in time. The Land That Time Forgot

This bee species make stunning nests that look like high art.

When people outside the hive wonder how people in the hive can believe the nonsense about diversity and the blank slate, it is important to keep in mind the power of magical thinking. They want this stuff to be true, so they tend to gravitate toward others who have the same fantasies. It is exactly how cults work. The doubt or concern of one member becomes a reason for the rest to double up on their belief. Progressives are people in search of purpose and identity, so they tend to clump together for support.

It’s Stephen King’s Turn to Get Eaten by the Left

The now aging former hippies, Weather Underground terrorists, and radicals became professors, lawyers, and elected officials. Their hostility to the establishment was muted or aimed at phantom enemies, like the WASP country-club elite which has long since been upended; after all, they had all become a part of the establishment or prospered under it, having undertaken a gradual “march through the institutions.” Activists were somewhat uneasy, however, because they saw an emerging big business and big government alliance. So much for “power to the people.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is less hideously unattractive than the usual Democrat potentate or potentatette and has therefore been anointed the new face of her pathetic party. This dumb woman, who looks like Huma Abedin without the pedohubby and the weird relationship with Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit, took advantage of her even dumber New York district in order to get elected to Congress by calling herself a “socialist.” Yeah, the subject of a thousand Trader Joe’s house brand chardonnay toasts is a proud adherent of the ideology that butchered 100 million people in the last century.

Plastic bag ban criticised as 90 per cent of plastic waste comes from rivers in Asia and Africa

If you were a Paleface unfortunate enough to be captured in the American-Indian Wars, you could look forward to the following displays of forgiveness and high culture: Common torture techniques included burning the captive, which was done one hot coal at a time, rather than on firewood pyres; cutting with knives, beatings with switches or sticks, and jabs from sharp sticks. Prisoners’ fingernails were ripped out. Their fingers were broken, then twisted and yanked by children. Captives were made to eat pieces of their own flesh, and were scalped alive…the execution of a captive, especially an adult male, could take several days and nights.

President Trump Grants Full Pardon for Dwight Hammond (76) and Steven Hammond (49) – Oregon Ranchers…

Why the NYT Is Obsessed with Alan Dershowitz | Whether they realize it or not, Dershowitz scares The New York Times. What if he’s right? Does he, of all people, have to be saying in public what so many of us believe — that the Mueller investigation is little more than a partisan hack job and impeachment talk is absurd. Okay, he doesn’t want Hillary prosecuted either, but still… Et tu, @AlanDersh?

Nicaragua’s Ortega rules out elections as violence continues

Boredom, at least in our time, is the most overlooked source of evil. In the past, before people went to college and abandoned religion—the two greatest reasons there is so much moral idiocy in our time—people knew how dangerous boredom was. “Idle hands are the devil’s workshop” was a commonly used aphorism that wouldn’t even make sense to most young people today. By bored I am not referring to a lack of things to do. There is more opportunity to do and experience things today than ever before. By bored I mean a deep boredom of the soul, what the French call “ennui.” This is the boredom that emanates from lack of purpose and a yearning for excitement.

Survival Of The Richest? Not So Much… Billionaire bozos think they’re going to “control” guys like this when things get frisky? Stop, you’re killing me. They’ll eat their boss for brunch, after they toy with his intestines. In front of him, while he watches.

    The pardons of GWB were limited and boring. The pardons of the Clinton Crime Family were for cash. The pardons of Obie were one last poke at the quivering body of America, releasing drug dealers and terrorists and if Godzilla had been in Federal Pokey he would have been freed to.

    President Donald Trump isn’t waiting until he can get out of town before the screaming starts. He isn’t doing it for the money. He’s going for the greatest benefit to the country and in the interests of Truth, Justice and the American Way.

    Read with joy. The inexorable forward march of Americans, over the corpse of Democraticism.

    VDH punches at and above his weight. In the encyclopedia, under the phrase “clear-eyed,” there is a picture of him.

    The Indian Wars were illustrated without prejudice by John Ford in his movies, yet are to this day denigrated by all parties in America. I’m having none of that horseshit. War is war, and that particularly long set of wars cleared the frontiers of savagery. Am I making you uncomfortable? Consider what things would really be like if we hadn’t fought the Indians. Tribes would have killed one another savagely, and you’d go into your arbor woods with an M-60 machine gun for protection. Your cross-country drives through the desert SW would be like a scene from Mad Max. You cool with that?

    I’m watching a Brit reality show where the contestants are training to be SOE agents, complete with 1940s clothing and props. None of them have fired a weapon before, and most are aggro about touching them. It’s funny to watch, and my teen son is telling me daily that his meme-driven friends online call GB the “Ultimate State of Britain.” The UK has become every dystopian movie and TV show we grew up on, and they put citizens in jail for fucking memes. “How sharp’s your kitchen knife, mate?”

    The way to clean the plastic river dumps is to stop recycling plastic. There is no market for it so it is sold to the highest bidder who then dumps it anywhere lax laws exist. Usually Africa or Asia. Landfills are much more efficient, but a whole group of union voters have been established on the recycling myth. Dixie Ray Lee wrote about this in the ’80s. Book called “Trashing the Planet”. I beleive the last Republican governor of WA.

    I agree that the British have become sheep but it’s only bad in the big cities. London is a shithole as is NYC but most of the rest of the U.K. is still bucolic, peaceful and the people nice. There are a few Muslims here and there but they don’t have the critical mass like they do in London and other European cities. It’s just like when the progs talk about the terrible murder rate in America what they really mean is the terrible murder rate in the cities they run.

    Hunter gatherers lose, farmers win. Always. Everywhere. It’s a fact of nature. The plains indians were doomed. If the Europeans hadn’t come then eventually the eastern indian confederations would have eliminated them and planted corn. Totally inevitable. Happened everywhere else in the world (except for some reason I can’t fathom in Africa). Sometimes it was the evil colonials. Many times it was just the locals deciding that farming is better and the wild people have to go. Just always remember, Farmers Win, Hunter Gatherers Lose. It’s the law…

  • Suburbanbanshee July 12, 2018, 8:04 AM

    Actually, the vast majority of Native American tribes in the East were farmers. Not so much in the West, except where corn grew well; but the Southwest had tons of farmers too. Obviously most tribes also did hunting and gathering, but a lot of the tribal wars were over bottomland for cornfields. The more agriculture, the more wars. (The only exceptions were the trade wars over hunting land for furs, which mostly consisted of the Iroquois killing or driving out every tribe in Ohio, Kentucky, and the area around it. The Iroquois Confederation wanted a monopoly on the fur trade with Europe, and they pretty much got it.)

  • Suburbanbanshee July 12, 2018, 8:11 AM

    Anyhoo… most of the Plains Indians were also farmers. That’s why they had Green Corn dances, and stories about the Corn Maiden. The Sioux were more nomadic, but that’s only because they were farmers who got kicked out of Iowa and were still fighting for their own lands… plus horses were cool “new tech”, only a hundred years old or so. If you got stuck in a dry area, you were nomadic. If you found a good farming area, you settled down again and started planting corn and squash and beans.

    People tend to think every US tribe had lived in the same place, in the same way, for thousands of years before white people came. This is almost always wrong to a huge degree of wrongness.

  • Vanderleun July 12, 2018, 8:37 AM

    “… a lot of the tribal wars were over bottomland for cornfields.”

    That’s a very interesting fact that I am pleased to learn.

  • pbird July 12, 2018, 9:10 AM

    Ah, but, Hunter/Gatherers are healthier and better looking than people who live on corn/pigfood. No diabetics living on deer!

    ” There is no market for it so it is sold to the highest bidder who then dumps it anywhere lax laws exist.”

    Why would someone bid on something that has no market/value?

  • Ulysses Toole July 12, 2018, 2:11 PM

    Sorry ghostsniper. Re: Why would someone bid on something that has no market/value?

    They are paid to take it so I guess that would be who bid least amount to dispose. My bad.

  • Casey Klahn July 12, 2018, 10:06 PM

    The disposal of garbage is one of the few things a municipality or county ought to pay for. It is the only model that works, yet I cannot think of any such arrangement in the USA.

  • Casey Klahn July 12, 2018, 10:13 PM

    You get what I meant. The only model where garbage is disposed of properly would be where the city pays the freight, and the citizen gets free disposal; the common man hates to pay for the disposal of his garbage and will look for any way around that. His only reason to pay is his sense of the common good.

    Behavior mod by government is egregious, and deserving of the rope or the tar. However, what manner of fools ignore human behavior to this degree? I wouldn’t serve on a city council if I were paid to do so. It is beneath me.
