Guess who is noticing the first President to help them in fifty years.

HISTORIC! Donald Trump Approval Ratings with Blacks Hits 31% — Up 13 Points in One Year

 

From the comments…

Why do you think they are trying to manufacture a tape with Trump saying the N word. They know that is the only way to keep blacks on the reservation.

It’s 31% per Rassmussen. Even the obviously biased NAACP admits that President Trump has 21% support.

That’s a nightmare for Democrats. Hillary lost while getting 88% of the Black vote. If their candidate gets only 70% in 2020 they’re sunk.

The problem for the Left is how much President Trump has improved the lot of the average African-American. DJT has done more for them in 18 months than the Second Black President did in 8 years.

Now they have to manufacture an emotion-based hate fest to try and overcome rational self-interest

  • Yes, Omarosa appears to be the latest squirrel the media is trying to use in their “Trump is a racist” Big Lie campaign.

QOTD: Thomas Sowell

The Lament of The Farmer (Go Fornicate Yourself)

Your “industry” built an open, outrageous and notorious FRAUD with Ethanol for fuel. You also managed to get the EPA to shut up about the damage too; they failed to file REQUIRED reports on the ecological impact of same that was written into the RFG law and regs. Well, now it’s out, it’s FOUR YEARS late, and not only does Ethanol production lead to ridiculous amounts of fertilizer run-off and environmental destruction (which would happen with any crop grown that intensively, so perhaps you could be excused there) in addition it increases NOx when burnt in modern engines.

The latter means it creates more smog-forming ozone, not less. Ethanol was a decent idea back when MTBE was discovered to be a massive groundwater problem and engines in cars had carburetors and first-generation, non-closed-loop TBI injection. You can count those engines on the road today in the low single digits; outside of antiques they’re all gone.

Finally, if that’s not enough, it has far fewer BTUs that gasoline so it also damages fuel economy. While the percentage of damage is small (about 2%) extrapolated across all the fuel consumed that’s billions of dollars and millions of tons of additional CO2 emitted into the atmosphere. I happen to not think much of so-called “global warming science” (having more than a bit of knowledge in physics and chemistry) but the economic impact of intentionally damaging fuel economy, never mind the NOx problem which is very real, is another matter entirely.

No Danger here, move along.

Two Muslim men and three women are charged with 11 counts of child abuse each after police raided their compound in New Mexico and discovered 11 malnourished children living in squalor.

Prosecutors also said they obtained a letter from one of the suspects telling his brother to come to the compound and die like a martyr.

Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe testified that they found children holding boxes of ammunition, and that one child was found with a gun.

Despite law enforcement authorities saying that they believe that the children were being trained to attack innocents, and that the adults were radicalized, Judge Sarah Backus released the suspects.

Sunday musings

Must remember to check on my voting status, for an odd reason I keep getting dropped from the voting rolls.

Bringing plastic straws with me when I visit my mother today, she needs them to imbide her Frappe more easily. 

Almost fourteen years since I last had a roll of film developed.

I resemble that remark!

Mohammed Vs.  Jesus…

…and the icing on the cake!

Words old enough to put out to pasture.

Do you remember that word? Would you believe the email spell checker did not recognize the word Murgatroyd?

Heavens to Mergatroyd! –  Suffering Succotash !!

Jeepers Creepers .. where’d you get those peepers

Jeepers Creepers .. where’d you get those eyes ????

Lost Words from our childhood: Words gone as fast as the buggy whip!

The other day a not so elderly (I say 75) lady said something to her son about driving a Jalopy and he looked at her quizzically and said “What the heck is a Jalopy?” He never heard of the word jalopy!! She knew she was old…. but not that old.

Well, I hope you are Hunky Dory after you read this.

About a month ago, I wrote down some old expressions that have become obsolete because of the inexorable march of technology. These phrases included “Don’t touch that dial,” “Carbon copy,” “You sound like a broken record” and “Hung out to dry.”

Back in the olden days we had a lot of moxie. We’d put on our best bib and tucker to straighten up and fly right.

Heavens to Betsy! Gee whilikers! Jumping Jehoshaphat! Holy moley!

We were in like Flynn and living the life of Riley, and even a regular guy couldn’t accuse us of being a knucklehead, a nincompoop or a pill. Not for all the tea in China!

Back in the olden days, life used to be swell, but when’s the last time anything was swell?

Swell has gone the way of beehives, pageboys and the D.A.; of spats, knickers, fedoras, poodle skirts, saddle shoes and pedal pushers and Saddle Stitched Pants

Oh, my aching back! Kilroy was here, but he isn’t anymore.

We wake up from what surely has been just a short nap, and before we can say, ‘Well, I’ll be ‘A monkey’s uncle!’

Or, This is a ‘fine kettle of fish’! We discover that the words we grew up with, the words that seemed omnipresent have vanished with scarcely a notice from our tongues and our pens and our keyboards.

Long gone: Pshaw, The milkman did it. Hey! It’s your nickel. Don’t forget to pull the chain. Knee high to a grasshopper. Well, Fiddlesticks! Going like sixty. I’ll see you in the funny papers. Don’t take any wooden nickels.

Wake up and smell the roses.

It turns out there are more of these lost words and expressions than Carter has liver pills.

We of a certain age have been blessed to live in changeable times. For a child each new word is like a shiny toy, a toy that has no age. We at the other end of the chronological arc have the advantage of remembering there are words that once did not exist and there were words that once strutted their hour upon the earthly stage and now are heard no more, except in our collective memory.

It’s one of the greatest advantages of aging.

Leaves us to wonder where Superman will find a phone booth..

See ya later, alligator!   When your legs are straighter!  In a while Crocodile!

Gone to the dogs!

Okeydokey – SMOKEY!!

WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE FABULOUS 50’S..

NO ONE WILL EVER HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY AGAIN…

WE WERE GIVEN ONE OF OUR MOST PRECIOUS GIFTS:

………..OUR MEMORIES……..

If you think of more add them on and share again … Have a good one!!!!

John: Well, put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Death of a Nation.

Death of a Nation, (2018)  A new documentary by Dinesh D’Souza.

I started to worry right at the beginning when the movie opened with a lengthy segment of black and white archive footage of a WWII bombing mission over Europe.  Never drop a bomb in your opening scene unless the subject of the documentary is in fact about bombing.

Death of reputation, D’Souzas reputation as a filmmaker I’m afraid.   I’ve seen his earlier work and admired it, this was painful to sit through.  Perhaps pulling it back and re-editing would help because there was no focus.  And a half hour could have been easily cut by getting rid of the amateur, stock theatrics and the two pointless ‘musical’ interludes.

He doesn’t  name current players and their actions for the most part, of George Soros (whom he did spend some time and those ‘amateur theatrics’ on) is it really significant that at 14 years old Soros helped inventory the property seized from Jewish victims of the Nazis?

D’Souza wastes what I would guess was fifteen minutes on White Supremacist  Richard Spencer.  Proving, I guess, that Spencer is a loon and that he is also not affiliated with Donald Trump.  But why mention him at all let alone have a lengthy sit down interview and giving Spencer more screen time than he did to President Donald Trump or Barack Obama?

Too much time was spent on Germany and Italy during the rise of Mussolini and Hitler, all to hammer in D’Souzas point that the Democratic Party is more similar to the Nazis in methods and beliefs than the Republicans are.

And really, the worst Lincoln beard on an actor I’ve ever seen.

Five people in the theater including us.  No publicity whatsoever might account for that.  But if D’Souza is hoping for good word of mouth advertising,  he can stop waiting.

One star and that is out of pity.  Hillary Clinton could put together a better film to frame an innocent man than this effort.

Facebook follies.

Facebook Brazenly Asks Banks for Customer Bank Balances, Credit Card Numbers

Facebook has requested customer financial information from a number of U.S. banks without obtaining permission from users, according to a recent report. Included in the requests are credit card transactions and checking account balances for the customers.

Facebook has spoken with JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citigroup Inc. and U.S. Bancorp. Their requests are ostensibly to “help” their users by showing their checking account balances on their Facebook feed, making it easier to sell products and services.

I had a Facebook account for all of twelve minutes.  An old friend was dying and I was trying to get in contact with him.  He responded to my friend request, I got his number and we talked, one last time.  His girlfriend called me a month later to let me know he had passed.   I suspended the Facebook account at that time (which was all I could figure out how to do at the time).   Last month I re-entered the Facebook universe only to completely delete my presence there.

So I don’t know if I have a dog in this fight or just a wager on the outcome.  But my bet is that in the end Facebook is going the way of Compuserve or AOL.

And in my opinion, they richly deserve their ignominious end.
