Taylor Swift is Number One, Rumer Danced Her Ass Off and Some Klown Musings


That’s right, Taylor Swift was selected as #1 on Maxim’s 2015 list of Totally Hot Hotties, and she did it without taking her clothes off in public. She stands astride the music industry like a colossus. She shows up on magazine covers a couple times a month, and that’s not just the tabloids – she has made the covers of magazines like Time and Glamour too.

Best of all, she’s really, really nice!


I don’t know much about Rumer Willis except that she has famous parents, a large shapely derriere and her father’s looks. Last night she took the Dancing With The Stars season #3471 championship, In the finals she defeated a one-armed, one-legged man and a skinny young blonde guy who wears a head band/scarf/bandana to conceal the fact that he is prematurely balding.


Here’s a piece by Thomas Sowell:

In a recent panel discussion on poverty at Georgetown University, President Barack Obama gave another demonstration of his mastery of rhetoric — and disregard of reality.

One of the ways of fighting poverty, he proposed, was to “ask from society’s lottery winners” that they make a “modest investment” in government programs to help the poor.


And please don’t call the government’s pouring trillions of tax dollars down a bottomless pit “investment.” Remember the soaring words from Barack Obama, in his early days in the White House, about “investing in the industries of the future”? After Solyndra and other companies in which he “invested” the taxpayers’ money went bankrupt, we haven’t heard those soaring words so much.

Then there are those who produced the wealth that politicians want to grab. In Obama’s rhetoric, these producers are called “society’s lottery winners.”

Was Bill Gates a lottery winner? Or did he produce and sell a computer operating system that allows billions of people around the world to use computers, without knowing anything about the inner workings of this complex technology?

Was Henry Ford a lottery winner? Or did he revolutionize the production of automobiles, bringing the price down to the point where cars were no longer luxuries of the rich but vehicles that millions of ordinary people could afford, greatly expanding the scope of their lives?

Most people who want to redistribute wealth don’t want to talk about how that wealth was produced in the first place. They just want “the rich” to pay their undefined “fair share” of taxes. This “fair share” must remain undefined because all it really means is “more.”

Once you have defined it — whether at 30 percent, 60 percent or 90 percent — you wouldn’t be able to come back for more.

Prior to 2008 I was a yellow-dog Democrat and a flaming liberal. I liked Big Government (and I cannot lie). 7 years later I am neither a Democrat nor a liberal. The Obamaphenomena is the primary reason I no longer consider myself a Democrat even though technically I am still registered that way. I don’t need to explain that part to you again.

My ideological journey is still ongoing. Breaking the emotional and sentimental bonds that connected me with the Democrats did not directly affect my beliefs, but once free I began to see things differently. The thing that probably had the most profound effect on my ideological beliefs was the Occupy Wall Street movement.

OWS was the Left dropping its mask along with its pants for the whole world to see.

A few old friends became immediately enamored with the movement. What I saw was a bunch of privileged children complaining about being privileged. They were rebels without a clue. They were intellectually and morally bankrupt. They didn’t even know what they were protesting about.


They protested corporatism and capitalism while using smart phones and wearing designer clothes and shoes. They squatted in an urban park and brought in catered food from gourmet restaurants. They held daily public meetings where nothing was ever accomplished. Meanwhile their shadowy leaders met in a nearby Union Bank conference room.

I’m no math whiz, but something didn’t add up.

According to the Left if you get stupid rich in sports, entertainment, social media, environmentalism, charity fundraising, or politically correct public speaking that is perfectly okay. But if you get rich by building and/or selling a better mousetrap and running a business that employs thousands of people you are a bad, bad member of the Evil One Percent Conspiracy.

Before 2008 I believed that we needed Big Government to protect us from Big Business. Since then I have learned to hate and fear Big Government. But I am still not a fan of Big Business either. The thing that I finally realized is that the two are symbiotes. Put Big Business together with Big Government and you have Crony Capitalism.

We need to drain the swamp. In order to do that (assuming we are able) we need to curb the power of the federal government. We must restore constitutional limits and return power to the states and the people.

It won’t be easy. It may not be possible. Either way it could will get really ugly before it is over.

Shake it off.


BTW – The SF Giants defeated the Loathsome Dodgers 2-0 last night. They play again tonight and tomorrow afternoon.

OMG!  Is that WATER in Bear Creek?

    If you want me I’ll be out back working in the yard.

  2. Myiq2xu says:

    President Obama (@POTUS) has 2.21 million followers

    Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) has 57.7 million followers

    Sounds about right.

    • leslie says:

      Maybe you can add me to the @taylorswift13 and not to @POTUS. I bet that’ll hurt his feelings.

    • leslie says:

      Just a funny story about my grand girl (4y/o Josie) and your girl Taylor…
      I guess my grand girl had got into some mischief at home and her father (my son 😉 ) sent her to her room for a time out. She wasn’t happy about the time out and said something or groaned or made a face or something to which he replied, “Oh my gosh, Look at that face… Be that girl for a month, Wait the worst is yet to come.” (from Blank Space)
      To which Josie replied “well, you’re no Taylor Swift”.

      Made me laugh out loud when I heard about it. My son did too when he was telling it. We all ❤ Taylor in our family!

    THAT’s nice booty! Just sayin’.

  4. 49erDweet says:

    Interesting that you chose something from Sowell. He, too, started off as a librul (Marxist) but switched when he saw the error of his ways. Been following him since the early 80’s. Brilliant.

  5. DandyTIger says:

    Wait until the stock market crashes hard later this year if you want to see ugly. The Dems are bankrupt. The Repubs are stuck in reaganomics. Both want to grow government and centralize power. Both want the position of POTUS to effectively be a dictator. Both will destroy the country. The only question is, are they really that stupid, or are they so cynical and corrupt that they know it will, and they’ll just move on to another location once they’ve consumed this forest?

    • 49erDweet says:

      I’m counting on an augmented TP to smother the gopE into submission.

      I know. Probably won’t happen, but I see no other way for things to improve…..sadly.

  6. 49erDweet says:

    OT and from down below, today Forbes has a favorable economic story that probably surprises most folks.
    ” California may be struggling with a terrible drought, but its agricultural economy still thrives in the domestic and international markets. Six of our top 10 U.S. agricultural economies are in California, including No. 1 Madera, No. 3 Merced and No. 6 Bakersfield. These California regions have a similar profile: an outsized concentration in agribusiness, roughly 10 times the national average, reasonable growth, and low but rising wages.”

    I’m betting Tulare and Fresno counties are on the list, too.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Remember, it doesn’t matter that they lied. That there was no assault. It only matters that they felt bad, and that they didn’t like the person they targeted as the source of their feeling bad.

      • leslie says:

        They had to lie. They were triggered into it. /s

        • Lulu says:

          The university prez wouldn’t shake her hand when she galumphed by with her giggling pals and the mattress on the stage. She just cost the university a couple more mil more out of the endowment for a settlement. Narcissist attention hog girl. She personally gets sued next.

          • leslie says:

            really… I did not know that happened. Well, I hope she does get sued. But then the hue and cry to go up would give ISIS a run for is money.

    ” I am neither a Democrat nor a liberal…”
    I think there is a big difference between Liberalism and Prog-ism. Liberals don’t believe in speech codes, statism, “settled science, etc., etc. Today the great Vile-Prog causes are “Social Justice” and Climate Change. During the late 19th to mid 20th century the great Progressive cause and settled science was Eugenics. Maybe the last Liberal in politics died when Paul Wellstone’s plane crashed.

    • leslie says:

      I’m not certain about that. Although I agree Paul Wellstone was definitely a Liberal. But there is also Russ Feingold who, I read, is thinking of running for the Senate again in Wisconsin.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        What I remember about Feingold was that he liked to give big speeches in losing causes. He would stand up in the Senate, wave his arms and intone piously in support or opposition to a bill that was going to pass or fail by a large margin.

        But when it was too close to call he would toe the party line.

        • leslie says:

          I guess you’re right. I think that was back when the party was liberal. It could be worse now. Who knows.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      I used to say I was a liberal and not a progressive, the difference being that liberals have principles and progressives don’t.

      Nowadays I refuse to apply an ideological label to myself, because labels allow people to pigeonhole you. Even worse, what I mean by the label probably won’t be the same thing that other people interpret it to mean.

      • 1539days says:

        You can call a libertarian a liberal. The problem is that most self-identified liberals are also externally identified Obama butt-sniffers.

  11. Dora says:

    OT but this is terrible news. Palmyra is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible and in the annals of the Assyrian kings. Its monuments have been standing for 2,000 years. 😦

    Breaking: Historic Palmyra, Syria FALLS to ISIS


    • votermom says:

      Crap. They’ll probably deface / destroy the monuments.

      • leslie says:

        I’d love to see Israel train their guns on ISIS. And blow them to smithereens. FoxNews report both Hama’s and Israel are targets of ISIS. wouldn’t it be something if ISIS united those two enemies with their threats of destruction?

  12. Myiq2xu says:

    Letterman was never funny. It’s apt that he is being replaced by Stephen Colbert, who was never funny either.

  13. leslie says:

    So, I was in the car driving home from the train and listening to newsradio and heard this:

    FERGUSON • The memorial to Michael Brown on Canfield Drive has been removed and will be replaced by a plaque, Mayor James Knowles III and Michael Brown Sr. announced Wednesday.

    Knowles said the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis will store the stuffed animals and other items that have formed the temporary memorial down the center of Canfield Drive since Aug. 9, when Brown, 18, was shot and killed there by a Ferguson police officer.

    Flanked by newly elected Ferguson City Council members Wesley Bell and Ella Jones, Knowles and Brown said the plaque will be part of a new permanent memorial in the area.

    In an interview after the news conference, Bell said the new memorial along Canfield will include the figure of a dove, and that Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, had been involved with the planning. The metallic dove and the plaque will be embedded in the sidewalk along Canfield. . . .

    It’s a good thing I was mindful about where I was driving. I could’ve run people over after hearing this claptrap.

  14. leslie says:

    It’s too sad.

  15. Propertius says:

    Best of all, she’s really, really nice!

    Except when she’s writing songs about men she’s dumped ;-).

  16. Myiq2xu says:
  17. Myiq2xu says:

    He must be single. No wife would believe this story:

    On the evening of the assault, the victim told police, he attended a birthday party for the neighbor whom Gilman knew. “Once arriving home he fell asleep on his bed,” Detective Roger Ishimitsu reported. “Victim slept very hard due to a long day.”

    Around 2 AM, “M.O.” awoke to find the 240-pound Gilman on top of him. The victim told cops that his erect penis was inside Gilman, who had pinned his hands over his head. “M.O.” said that after Gilman ignored demands to get off him, he was “able to work his way out from underneath” her.

    “You fell asleep and woke up with your dick inside her. Suuuuure you did.”

    • 1539days says:

      Sexual assault isn’t funny. If she plead guilty, she was probably doing something wrong.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        I am so old I remember when humor didn’t have to be politically correct. When I was a kid we told “dead baby” jokes.

        How do you make a dead baby float?

        12 oz of root beer and 2 scoops of dead baby.

        We used to tell pedophilia jokes.

        What do Sears and the Catholic Church have in common?

        They both have boys jeans half off.

        We even told jokes about the Challenger explosion.

        What color were Christa McAuliffe’s eyes?

        Blue – one blew east and the other blew west.

        Humor was how we dealt with pain, anger, depression and sadness. That whole “laughter is the best medicine” thingie. Nowadays there are too many people who spend their days looking for something to be offended about. Every identity group has a butthurt committee.

        Some people need to get those sticks surgically removed from their asses.

  18. 1539days says:

    Letterman’s Top Ten is full of Obama butt sniffers: Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Jim Carrey, Chris Rock

  19. Dora says:

    I think the parties are harder to define these days. There is no straight line between democrats and republicans. The definitions of liberals and progressives seem to change every few years. On the issue of surveillance, which Rand Paul spoke out against in the senate last night, it was mostly democrats who were there to lend him support.

    Domestic surveillance fate unclear after lengthy Senate talk

    Another THAT DID IT moment from Hillary’s campaign!

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign hires illegal immigrant ‘Dreamer’


    • Dora says:

      I’m still fuming at Hillary’s audacity. I remember when Linda Chavez had to step down from her nomination to a cabinet position because it was discovered that she had hired illegal immigrants to work in her home. Wow! This is maddening!

      • Lulu says:

        Don’t you know the Dreamers are the best and our future? They have aspirations. Our native born children and grandchildren are just shit. Worthless. Not worth pandering to. Bums. I think she is pandering to every group that is trotted out in front of her to cobble a mess of a coalition to drag her ass over the line for the nomination. Like Bronco did in 2008. It might work. But good luck in the general election and winning that good luck governing.

        • 49erDweet says:

          Yeah. You nailed it. Who cares how ya get there, or if you have a shred of a chance at doing a passable job once you’re there? Just GET THERE, baby! The job is simple to do. Just ask Barry.

    Way to disrespect our young military officers by blowing smoke up their asses.

    Does anybody else see something problematic here?

    Bill Cosby sued for defamation by Janice Dickinson

    In November, supermodel Janice Dickinson said in an interview that Bill Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1982 after the two had dinner in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

    Cosby attorney Martin Singer immediately called Dickinson’s story “a lie” and said it contradicted her own autobiography and a 2002 interview she did with the New York Observer.

    Now Dickinson is suing Cosby for defamation, saying the comedian hurt her professionally and personally in denying her rape accusation and calling her a liar.

    “I want justice done. I want Lisa Bloom (her lawyer) to depose Bill Cosby, get him on the stand and in front of a jury and let the law decide.”

    Bloom also weighed in.

    “Calling Dickinson a liar is a defamatory statement under the law … and that’s the mistake Bill Cosby made,” Bloom said.

    “It was too late to for her to sue for rape or for drugging, but once he through his representatives called her a liar she had a fresh claim for defamation and that’s the lawsuit that we filed today.”

    • 49erDweet says:

      The truth is no longer a defense? Defamation by third party? Someone’s run out of meds? A misguided PR firm is scrambling to keep a client? Someone turned 60, looked in the mirror, and discovered another wrinkle?

  23. Myiq2xu says:

    I just barfed up my breakfast, not sure why. Other than the sour taste in my mouth I feel fine.

    The barf included my morning meds. Should I take them again or just wait until the next regularly scheduled pill popping?

    • Myiq2xu says:

      I knew that possum on my front porch last night was a harbinger of bad luck.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Run a test: Separate out the meds then encourage Teh Kittens to rummage through the glob. If they turn up their noses, no way. If they go for it, why shouldn’t you? /just joking/

  24. Myiq2xu says:

    Imagonna go back to bed and start over in a few hours.

    ROFL over the irony of the former 49er (no relation) coach, the mighty Jim Harbaugh being taken to the woodshed by a few, paltry muslim students at the U of Michigan.
    And he thought “academia” would be a bed of roses compared to the NFL! LOL

    • 49erDweet says:

      So “the beautiful people” (progs) think Bush is the best R candidate. Well, that settles it! The GOP has to nominate Bush. They said SO!

      Clueless numbwads!

    • Lulu says:

      Jeb is a big fat wienie. A boring dud. Even his own mother thinks so. He rebelled as a teenager against his Connecticut Yankee parents by turning into a Hispanic. Yeah. No. AND no one is EXCITED about Hillary either. It is deja vu all over again. Time for both of them to shuffle off into the sunset with their money bags.
