    The tower was 32 feet high. Ben made it to the top. So did his dad. Thomas only made it part way and gave up.

    “One of the reasons Republicans keep getting clobbered is that we have leaders like Mitt Romney or like Jeb Bush who are afraid.”

      Oh, noes, Romney is a 47-percenter!

      This was covered and condemned on MSNBC this morning. Cruz was seen as being “calculating” and “manipulative” and waiting to pick up the supporters of Trump and Huckabee at the end of the day. (And maybe he is, but is that a bad thing?)

      I think Cruz is also trying to show his own supporters that he has not become part of the DC establishment. He still needs them after all is said and done.

    Omce upon a time i worked in a land called make believe. I was a bartender that dealt with private. Parties when no one else was around. I went in one Sunday to file things. By chance I stepped outside to catch a smoke. Hundreds of people at the door. Rainig I said wedo not open for three hours. I made a decision to let him in. I said you are three hours early I can only do so much. He had everyone opening wine. Ivanka was there and she had people pass down plates. I thought I was going to be fired but the guy called in and said it was great. Ivanka had no issue with serving champagne to her friends.

    So cute!!!!! He has the same birthday as my oldest son. (16 today; I have a case of The Olds.)

    I am ridiculously excited to be going to Paris tomorrow on a house exchange with a friend who has a hyoooooge apartment right on Canal St. Martin. The train turned out to be practically free and the apartment is 100% free, so I am jazzed. And will probably end up taking Miss Amelia back to Disneyland so, you know, no money will actually be saved.

    Is anybody else watching Grace & Frankie? I am hoping for a Dolly Parton cameo so we can get a full “9 to 5” reunion. Lily Tomlin is SO GOOD!

    A very Happy Birthday to Thomas. Lady Lily gets cuter by the day. It looks like they had a lot of fun. Watching kids enjoy life and learn something new every day keeps us young.

    Think Progger:

    On Tuesday night, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and his guests mocked transgender people and steps being taken to respect their identities. Responding to the suggestion from NBC contributor Danielle Moodie-Mills that commentators in the media should be held accountable for misgendering people, O’Reilly scoffed that he doesn’t know what that even means.

    Guest Bernard McGuirk, executive producer of Imus In The Morning, explained, “If you call Caitlyn Jenner ‘he.’” O’Reilly, claiming he was trying to be “accurate here on the Factor,” offered, “But from the waist down, he is a ‘he,’ according to she, according to him.” McGuirk agreed with that description, adding, “I cringe at the idea” of Caitlyn Jenner having gender-affirmation surgery.

    McGuirk then bemoaned that “their goal is to have gender-neutral locker rooms, gender-neutral bathrooms” and that “they want to get rid of urinals.” O’Reilly then suggested that “Satan might be behind” the inclusive categories the University of California system is now offering for students’ gender identities.


    The night after Fox aired its urinal concerns, The Daily Show included a segment in which correspondent Jordan Klepper traveled to Eureka Springs, Arkansas, one of the only cities in the state to pass and maintain nondiscrimination protections for its LGBT citizens. Klepper interviewed those protections’ top opponent, a local pastor by the name of Randall Christy, who insisted that he has serious concerns about transgender people using the restroom:

    CHRISTY: These laws that protect gender expression allow biological males to go wherever they want, biological females to go wherever they want, depending on how they’re expressing their gender that day. It is happening, you know.
    KLEPPER: What’s happening?
    CHRISTY: There are people that walk into restrooms and someone of the opposite sex is in that restroom.
    KLEPPER: Doing what?
    CHRISTY: Uh… evidently, using the restroom.
    KLEPPER: And then what?
    CHRISTY: I don’t know, but that’s a problem for some people.
    Klepper was unfazed, and invited City Council member Joyce Zeller to respond. She countered, “I’m not quite sure what bathrooms have to do with this, but for some reason, conservative religious people are terribly hung up on bathrooms.”


    The juxtaposition of these two clips is apt. Both Klepper and O’Reilly claim ignorance (feigned or not) about transgender people, but proceed to have opposite reactions. Klepper responds without concern (“and then what?”) while O’Reilly responds with fear (“Satan might be behind this”). (O’Reilly has previously said that transgender protections in schools are “truly madness.”) McGuirk’s odd worries about how bathrooms might change suggests that the “bathroom” scare tactics have been so overused that some conservatives are forgetting how the myth is even supposed to help their case against trans protections.

    This inclination toward the disregard of transgender people is prevalent throughout other coverage of trans issues. For example, Media Matters tracked the way local news networks have covered Houston’s Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO), an LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination ordinance that now faces a referendum at the ballot. Opponents of HERO repeatedly claimed that the transgender protections would somehow invite sexual predators into restrooms, and local media has frequently broadcast those claims without any context about their accuracy.

    Organizations like GLAAD have been working with media professionals to correct these myths and educate reporters about how to accurately and respectfully discuss transgender people. Media Matters’s tracking of national coverage of transgender issues suggests that simply getting news outlets to discuss them at all is a hurdle, let alone discuss them in an adequate fashion. As Houston’s coverage and the gulf between The Daily Show and The O’Reilly Factor all demonstrate, there is a long way to go.


    Now tell me who is crazy.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      BTW: TP only showed the second half of the BO clip, which makes the Satan reference seem out of left field.

    • elliesmom says:

      I didn’t see any sign of fear in that interview. Especially not of Satan. Gender classification is becoming like recycling. How many different containers can people be asked to separate their trash into before they decide the whole idea is crazy and just throw everything into the trash bag? In my town they had to settle on three. Trash, paper, and bottles and cans. More than that and people didn’t recycle. Male, female, and mentally ill. See, it works.

      • Lulu says:

        We have glass, paper, plastic and metal cans. And the administrators of the dump beg for grass clippings because that which goes into the dump is so concentrated with volatile rotten stuff that they need natural stuff like grass clippings so it don’t blow! The paper was needed to help it decompose properly. My favorite eco-nutburger side effect is the low flow toilets using so little water that all the pipes in San Francisco are a giant turd just sitting underground beneath their streets and houses. Whoa! A earthquake!

      Anyone who doesn’t have a problem with young girls using the same restroom as a *person* with a penis is the one who is fucked in the head.

        You are exactly right. there was “Hope and Change” and “Yes We Can”. Slogans and the support of people blinded to the nothingness of “just words” got his elected and now we are paying a huge price.

    Wow social security going broke by 2033
    What a scam RINOs let obamacare happen and exist because now they can force people to participate in private retirements. Imagine the trillion to be made. Keepin it simple lets say every worker spends 1 dollar a month in maintenance/fees that is over a billion a year. How do we then fund disability. I have a 529 account and I have to pay a yearly fee. I think someone makes bank on that.

    Off topic on an open thread Amazon now offers kindle i. I n 5 payments. No credit check. What a smart fucker that Bezos is. I order all the time from amazon because of the two day free shipping. I have the large kindle that I bought for 139 as a trade in thing sells for 479. I love my tablet almost never use desktop or laptop. I was thinking about an ipad but why if all I do is surf why spend 900 on a large phone? Only problem I have is Breitbart and twitchy. Shuts down everytime I open them.

    Tragedy as young man who cares for his paraplegic brother, 25, after motorcycle crash is paralyzed himself in swimming accident


  36. mothy67 says:

    I am going through obama 2.0. Years ago I expressed dislike for him and I had college friends just drop me they would not engage in dialogue.
    I screwd up big time i wanted the bacon seeds DandhyTiger had posted to go to one person. Went everywhere. I am gay but I have always been pro life. I have never judged any friend for making a decision. Not my place. I have friends that went to bath houses and had dozens of partners in one night. I did not judge. Suddenly because I think planned parenthood is a scam I am attacked.
    This woman wrote to me about how I was a sad fag in college and she stood by me when everyone else hated me.
    I had a walk in closet during college. Never not one time was my gayness ever an issue. I had great roommates that I have met over the years. I do wish “i” could have been more honest. They all knew I was gay the only person hiding was me. Rich ran into me the night he won a local emmy outside having a puff. He nearly killed me hugging me. We were roommates for two years. He knew I was gay better than I did. Was never an issue. I had female roommates for years. I livedvin Center City. I had really good diverse friends one roommate was or is now related by marriage to the clintons. I want to say in 30 years I have never been attacked like I have over that pig seed picture. I am astonished by the lies. I was there in the 80s 90s . Woman tells me i owe her support.

  37. Dora says:

    Wow! Not just Hillary, but Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, too. This could get interesting. The judge used the “p” word.

    Top Clinton aide accused of receiving overpayments at State Department


    • leslie says:

      Everything that is being hurled at Hillary may indeed be true. But Frankly, if obama and Jarrett didn’t want these charges to exist, they wouldn’t.
      AFAIC, This entire attack on Hillary and on her husband have been orchestrated by ValJar and bronco (and probably even more by MOTUS).
      Never forget the animus that MOTUS displayed toward and about Hillary from the beginning. Not only that, I’d bet my life that MOTUS and Jarrett plotted the “racist ” charges against the Clintons in 2008. I they are/were willing to go even deeper in the slime that Axelrod.

    Good god this jackass from Lincoln Universitywas justifying leaving a kid inthe car because some times people forget. Unfucking real. I wish there was a website where I could donate to that bad ass woman who shattered the car window to save a kid. I feel so sick and powerless.

  41. mothy67 says:

    What the fuck has happened to the world. I binged woman smash window kid car. There are hundreds of stories. My favorite was a woman who took a tire iron to a windshield and crawled threw cutting herself. The one year old had been alone for 40 minutes proven by video. She said arrest me I am getting this kid out. How is it possible? I am such a freak I hide behind curtains and watch the brat if she plays in the front yard. I cannot fathom how an adult can leave a child alone in a car. My teeny brain will not process that.

  42. mothy67 says:

    I was watching the local news and there was yet another story about a child death . I don’t get it. Four years ago brat’s mom accused me of molestation. She had ignored her child for years but woke up one day and said I am ready to be a mother. I will accuse the person who has cared for her of child rape. I had nothing to hide and gave free reign to the people that came into my home and flipped over my mattress dumped all of the drawers on the floor. Treated me like I was a monster. I lived in a cabin and hotels for two months. I was cleared and I thought about going after her mom. Friend said that will only hurt her. I talk to her mother all the time now. She is carrying het third child. Lives in a trailer not married. I do not understand how I was put through hell for two months and these people kill their own kids. I was subjected to so much scrutiny. I agree if some one makes an accusation follow through. I know why her mom made false allegations i care enough about the sponge to say okay. Her dad committed suicide and she got pregnant. She was 18 I think she was clinging to life. Got knocked up then the real baby was too real. A few years go by and she wants to play mommy so she accuses the only constant in her child’s life of the worst crime. No way I can express how people talked to me. I was abused. I see this stuff on the news and I cannot understand how it happens. I am not angry about what i went through. Okay I am lying. It washell.
