    I feel like I just crawled out of the grave too. If I gave you 50 guesses you would still never guess where I went last night. I gotta go back to bed. I’m not even hungover yet.

    Last night I went to a hafla. And that was before I got drunk.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      I was at a belly dance festival. There were old one and young ones, tall ones and short ones, fat ones and skinny ones, pretty ones and ugly ones. Some were pretty good dancers, some weren’t. Most of them were white, so there was probably some cultural appropriation going on.

      My DIL was one of the performers. Ben and Tommy were bored (they see her dance all the time) but Lily was fascinated by the music and the dancers. After she woke up, that is. She slept like a rock for the first hour.

    Mrs. Barronelle Stutzman, who owns and operates Arlene’s Flowers is being sued by the state of Washington for agreeing with Obama’s view on gay marriage that he held in 2008. Alas, the 70-year old grandmother may lose her business because she didn’t sufficiently evolve enough to suit the social justice terrorists:

    Barronelle Stutzman, a Christian florist, referred her friend and long-time customer to other florists because she could not in good conscience provide full wedding support for a same-sex wedding. Although the couple received flowers, the Washington State Attorney General, and later, the same-sex couple, sued Barronelle.

    The court found her liable for violating the Washington Law Against Discrimination and ruled that both the state and the couple may collect damages and attorneys’ fees from Barronelle’s business and personal assets.

    Now THAT’S depressing. How’d you like to be sued by one of your long-time friends? What happened was that after Mrs. Stutzman refused to do his wedding, the customer complained on social media, which resulted in it coming to the attention of the state attorney general, who then took it upon herself to initiate the lawsuit against her. Then the customer and his partner piled on with their own lawsuit, which targeted Mrs. Stutzman personally as well as her business. Because apparently there’s nothing more dangerous than a 70-year-old florist who refuses to do a homosexual wedding. She must be bullied into acquiescence, or bankruptcy.

    Mrs. Stutzman’s GoFundMe account, set up by Alliance Defending Freedom, the legal organization that is helping her mount a defense, is over $80,000 $85,000 now, so good job, all. Hopefully she’ll make the $100,000 goal.

    • DandyTIger says:

      I think Obama held that view until 2011, only conveniently switching before his re-election. This is not like refusing service at a counter. This is having to go perform a service in a way that may contradict your religion. I would say close to 0% of these same activists would be on the side of a similar lawsuit against a feminist florist for refusing to perform at a sadistic/enslavement of women type function.

    People be crazy.
    Today is the first really nice day long day in Pittsburgh since 1918. Had the bunny out. She is my little friend. Sits on me for hours because I am a lazy fuck with a netflix addiction. Anyhow we wewr out on the deck watching small creatures find eggs. Bunny got scared so she pooped. Good lord I thought my sister in law was going to pass out. She did throw up. A little rabbit turd on my arm big dea. Birds dump on me all the time. Seriously twice this year. M y SIL had one of her dogs that go to daycare pee on the bed. She bought a new 3000 dollar one that day. Could not sleep on it. I just find that kind of stuff funny. You should see her face when I take a bite of a doggy treat.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      You lost me with the doggy treat. That was just a bridge too far.

      • mothy67 says:

        As if Spam and pork n beans are sooo much better. I have never actually consumed a doggy treat but yeah I have taken a bite for shock value.
        My brothers are meticulous. Iron jeans. Me I sniff em. I can wear these a few more times. Think it has to do with growing up dirt poor they feel the need to always be presentable. Me don’t care. I have not brushed my hair since the 80’s when I would try to dry the curls out. Attempts to tame my head are futile. Let it be or walk away from netflix once a week. Yep once a week. It is a head full of curly cowlicks.

    Jonah Goldberg:

    So is it any wonder that today’s liberals have “Selma envy”? Is it a surprise they see Jim Crow laws everywhere? If your only frame of reference for moral heroism is the struggle for civil rights half a century ago, it’s no shock that you will do everything you can to bend the world today into your sepia-toned viewfinder of the past. Teach enough kids that they have to reenact Selma to be heroic, they’ll start seeing Selma in the weirdest places. Worse, the real issue won’t be the alleged injustice, the real issue will be their heroism — like kids who dig latrines in the third world so they can explain what heroes they are to the admissions counselor at Vassar.

    The problem is that to compare any other group’s experience to the black experience in America must of necessity be a poetic or metaphorical enterprise. The facts don’t line up for women and gays. The transgendered weren’t carted over here in the galleys of ships. (You could look it up.) This isn’t to say blacks are the only people to have suffered from historic injustices (or to say that constant dwelling on those injustices is necessarily constructive). It is to say that the constant unending desire to leach moral standing from their experience to give your own claims underserved grandeur is pathetic and shameful. And the know-nothing, often fundamentally anti-American, desire to constantly cast this country as an oppressive, evil-intentioned society, is an indication of how the Left’s intellectual gas tank is empty, and is now running simply on the fumes of megalothymic passion.

    I take real offense when people insist I am a bigot just to make themselves feel good. It’s literally quixotic. Don Quixote was sure windmills were dragons because he was sure he was a chivalric knight. But Quixote’s certainty didn’t transmogrify the windmills into dragons — his certainty proved he was crazy. I watch the preening jack wagons of MSNBC picking heroic fights with straw-men and I see the same lunatic alchemy at work. Scream loud enough at imaginary demons in America today, and someone will salute your courage as a demon slayer. But it won’t be me.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Goldberg’s points tie in closely with: “This Culture War We’re In”, the essay by Daniel Greenfield.

    • Constance says:

      “The problem is that to compare any other group’s experience to the black experience in America must of necessity be a poetic or metaphorical enterprise”

      This just isn’t true. My 100% white Scots relatives were brought here against their will and I’m guessing not in luxury accommodations and sold into indentured service for longer than their life expectancy. The upper crust English who first settled here also enslaved Native Americans.

    Bringing up the California drought situation from below, it’s quite telling that Arizona faces the same weather cycles and patterns as CA, but handles it more wisely. Without an increase in annual precipitation totals they still won’t face drought conditions until 2017. https://www.azpm.org/p/crawler-stories/2015/3/18/59276-could-new-california-water-restrictions-become-arizonas-future/
    But…they don’t have high speed rail, either, so THERE!

    • Myiq2xu says:

      That high speed rail is a Browndoggle. We don’t need it. The people who will be most affected by it don’t want it. The people who do want it will rarely use it.

      • HELENK3 says:

        wrong place, wrong time for high speed rail. the train to nowhere

      • 49erDweet says:

        Worthless and unneeded. Typical Brown project. Somebody’s (not our Somebody) palms are being greased.

      • 49erDweet says:

        Yeah. Where high speed rail would be useful would be between LA and SF. But way too expensive with multiple engineering challenges, so let’s connect Bakersfield with Modesto instead. Makes more sense. Unless the drought kills both cities. But that’s someone else’s problem.

        • Myiq2xu says:

          HSR between LA and SD would make more sense. Or LA to Vegas.

          Business travelers use commuter flights. There are lots of LA-Bay Area flights daily, to and from multiple locations north and south. And Sacto too.

          • Myiq2xu says:

            They should connect the whole Bay Area together with trains first.

          • 49erDweet says:

            You mean like BART only a real system? One that works and all? And goes real places. Faster then an oxcart?

          • 49erDweet says:

            I agree with you in part, but airport screening processes take up way too much business time. I know of business trips NOT MADE because of flight restrictions. Interconnecting SD, LA, SB, SLO and Silicon Valley with HSR could improve the west coast business climate in ways unknownable. IMO if CA had that kind of HSR it would probably outdo China’ s GNP………if it had a business friendly government. And water.

          • Propertius says:

            I flew 104,768 miles last year. Trust me, if there were something like the TGV running between LA and SF (with a stop in San Jose, my most common Bay Area destination) I’d be on it.

          • 49erDweet says:

            I know it! YD has to fly up and down the state for her school district, and hates it. And she needs to take others with her, sometimes, but can’t. HSR would be a godsend.

  24. Myiq2xu says:

    If you have never been to California you might think we only have freeways in Los Angeles. If you drive from LA to Vegas it’s freeway the whole damn way. So is LA to SF, SD, and Sacto, and to SJ it’s 98% freeway. Even lowly Merced has a freeway thru it.

  25. SHV says:

    “If you drive from LA to Vegas it’s freeway the whole damn way. So is LA to SF, SD, and Sacto, and to SJ it’s 98% freeway. ”
    And everyone is driving 25+ MPH over the limit. I could never figure how the CHIP decides which cars to pull over.

    • 49erDweet says:

      CHP has a special ability to check for attitudes. They only ticket people with bad attitudes. It’s a scientific fact.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      It depends on whether they are using radar. They usually uses multiple units with one using the radar and 2-5 chase cars. When they start they just grab the first speeders who come along. Then when all the chase units are tied up they just let everyone thru. As soon as a chase unit clears and gets back in position the radar cop starts looking for another victim. It usually doesn’t take long.

      I zoomed by a radar trap doing 85 and didn’t get pulled over because all the chase units were busy writing tickets.

      Regular patrol units just drive around looking for violations, unless they are on break or get sent to an accident. They like to bust out-of-state truckers because those guys never fight their tickets and always pay them off.

      • 1539days says:

        I am now in my 6th month of fighting a ticket. Mostly because I was in the tiny village near my house and they only have court once a month.

      • 49erDweet says:

        Too be fair, “gypsy” out-of-state truckers historically have a higher accident rate in CA than locals, usually because CA is a huge state and they miscalculated and are driving far beyond their allowed hours. So on known routes that bypass commercial truck scales, where all that would get checked, area beat cops watch ’em more closely for weaving, etc.
        If you’d ever worked a big rig accident where a car and driver was spattered beyond recognition by a tired trucker, you’d be a little careful about that, too.

      • SHV says:

        The craziest CA driving that I remember was I-8 heading toward San Diego. I was staying with the traffic flow in the middle lane, doing 100 mph, trying to be inconspicuous in a red V-12 and was being passed on each side by Hummers, pickups, cars, etc. That was some crazy sh*t!!

    I’m gonna go over Klown Jr’s place for Easter enchiladas.

      • Underwhelmed says:

        Indeed. But the progs can’t/won’t see it. Trying to explain the culture they’re steeped in, how it’s exclusionary and bigoted and heading fast towards fascism, is like trying to explain water to fish.

      • Underwhelmed says:

        PS — and yet, and yet, they then turn around and tell us that we are steeped in white privilege/male patriarchy, that we have all subconsciously defaulted to racism/sexism — but that’s different.

    • SHV says:

      The bottom line is “What goes around, comes around”. Republicans who thought anyone who opposed the Bush/Cheney FISA, Patriot Act proto-police state were un-American and traitors, now complain when a sociopathic President goes even further. I suspect that the next turn of the wheel after 2016 will be worse. I also object to calling the current “progressive” autocrats Liberal. Liberals don’t believe in, for example, campus speech codes, student “star chambers” where accusation=quilt, etc., etc. Our current crop of progressive special snowflakes would have been right at home waving their “little red books” during the cultural revolution.

        California may soon be known as the stinky state. Lots of BO, dirty clothes, and bad perfume. How are they going to wash their organic fruit and veg? Maybe they can open public baths and recycle the water.

    • elliesmom says:

      How are they going to monitor this? Does one of his friends own a company that makes shower heads with water meters in them? And who is going to get the contract for going around and checking the meters? Or are they going to ration the water? If a home goes over its limit, it gets fined? Do you get so much water per family member or per square foot of your house? If I send my clothes out to be laundered, do I have to give some of my water rations to the cleaners?

      • 1539days says:

        The government figured out rations were unpopular. Now they just tax the laundromats. Then they go after the laundromats for gouging poor people.

        Next they’ll make home washing machines illegal.

    Rolling Stone has made their mess bigger. They blame the crazy girl rather than the adults writing a rape porn to draw clicks. This writer almost exclusively writes salacious and very questionable pieces which RS prints. They blame being in a hurry, busy, understaffed, etc. “The attorneys, whose job is to limit the magazine’s legal exposure by ensuring that stories are solidly reported and factually supported, refused to talk to Coll et al., arguing attorney-client privilege. Editorial staffers likewise refused to discuss the legal advice they were given. The magazine now possibly faces a defamation lawsuit from Phi Kappa Psi, which has announced that it’s exploring its legal options.” My guess is that they got little to no legal review because in the body of the article the whiners say they have laid off fact checking staff which is cheap and lawyers are expensive. No one is fired because they wrote a piece that the publisher wanted. How can he fire them for doing for what he wanted. Salacious, politically correct, agenda driven, and defamatory is what he ordered up. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/04/06/rolling-stone-just-doesn-t-get-it.html
