    myiq’s last update from downstairs:

    UPDATE: They are taking mom to Emmanuel Hospital in Turlock for tests and observation. She’s feeling better but they still haven’t figured out what is wrong. I live a few blocks from Mercy Hospital in Merced. EH is 30 minutes away. MH has 24/7 visiting. EH only has visiting 9 to 9.

    Buffoon Juice:

    FL senator and presidential aspirant Marco Rubio routinely evades questions about why his home city of Miami is drowning by citing the fact that he is not a scientist. So I was mildly surprised during the recent GOP presidential debate when he justified his anti-abortion extremism by announcing with a flourish that his position is based on SCIENCE.

    During the debate, he mumbled some argle-bargle about “DNA mapping.” At the time, I remember thinking surely he’s not saying that since human zygotes have human DNA, ipso facto, zygotes are people? I mean, he’s dumb, but he’s not a true Palin-class moron, is he?

    Yes, he is. Rubio elaborated on his DNA discovery in follow-up media appearances (CNN clip here), observing that since a zygote contains human DNA and cannot therefore eventually develop into a cat, donkey or other type of animal, it’s a full-fledged human babby from the moment sperm meets egg. He was so proud of this insight that he tweeted about it:

    The only question remaining is when will he sponsor a bill to ban cremation, burial and other forms of disposing of human remains? Or outlawing the disposal of toenail clippings, shorn hair, expelled saliva, poop, etc.? Like Rubio, I’m not a scientist, but don’t all of these items contain human DNA, and if so, aren’t they entitled to the same rights you and I have because SCIENCE?

    So having an abortion is just like the disposal of toenail clippings, shorn hair, expelled saliva, poop, etc.?

    Wow. Just . . . wow.

    • Underwhelmed says:

      Yes it is, to these depraved descendants of Mengele. God have mercy on them. I should pray that they receive enlightenment, but my incandescent rage is getting in the way.

    • swanspirit says:

      These are the “rescue kittens and puppies” folks, because they are so compassionate. Ask them if they would mind crushing a puppy fetus near term. Cries and shouts of horror.

      • DeniseVB says:

        They do just that in barbaric animal labs. Probably where abortion doctors go to learn their skill. Sometimes animal rights people get it right if they could only connect the dots.

        In my perfect world we’d just go back to calling abortion a D&C the first trimester and perform them in a hospital. Obamacare should cover it 😉

        • swanspirit says:

          That is what choice was meant to be, although for later pregnancies, I do think the life of the mother takes precedence if there is a life threatening situation, which also should be monitored by an MD.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Some states are now requiring abortion doctors have access to hospitals in case of a problem. #WarOnWomen ! Huh?

          • votermom says:

            Who in their right mind would go to PP for a life-threatening pregnancy emergency? You would go to the hospital that your obgyn has privileges at.

          • Lulu says:

            Denise that is exactly what Texas did and were sued by PP. The abortion provider doctors come into town and leave. The local ER or doctors has to deal with any side effects or complications. Or the providers are residents and don’t have admitting privileges yet. PP doesn’t want that known as common knowledge. The local doctors don’t like it.

    • votermom says:

      I make that argument too. Of course it’s a human life. Do you think it might turn into puppy?
      I’ll gove Rubio props fpr being consistently pto-life. He seems genuinely horrified by PP.

    • piper says:

      So tired of the Palin meme that she is a ‘moron’ when she is a fighter and can speak the real truth not truthiness as spoken by the progressives/liberals or comedians. Amazing that almost 7 years later, she still lives rent free in all these widdle minds.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Do our “friends” from these “former friends” sites ever read here ? My GAWD, they are stupid. Sigh, if you’re lurking “former friends” have you no common decency, personal responsibility or a CLUE ?

      @Myiq2xu: So you, like Rubio, are arguing that this is a human being:

      (zygote picture)

      You’re just as stupid as he is. But we knew that.

      Myiq2xu says:
      August 11, 2015 at 6:20 pm

      @Betty Cracker: Yes. That’s science, and religion. Anything else is an arbitrary and artificial distinction.

      I am not a religious person. I support legal 1st trimester abortion, as well as medically necessary 2nd and 3rd trimester abortions. That is a political compromise recognizing both the rights of the mother and the rights of the unborn child.

      I’m not gonna pretend that it’s “just a clump of tissue.” If that were true than abortion wouldn’t be a serious issue. But just because we allow some abortions (safe, legal and rare) that doesn’t mean we should dehumanize the babies being aborted to make it easier on anyone’s conscience.

      You can hate, mock, insult and dismiss people who disagree with you, but that doesn’t make you right or morally/intellectually superior to them.

    When you teach school, every year there are a couple of kids you just can’t fathom. Why are they the way they are? You struggle to find some insight into what makes them tick. Then parents’ night rolls around, and you meet their folks, and it all falls into place. You can take this as a comment on the little boy out in the middle of a protest or a get well wish for MomKlown. Works for me either way. 😉

    • Myiq2xu says:

      If you spend your whole career at one school you can watch kids grow up and have kids that grow up and have kids. By the third generation you know what to expect.

      • elliesmom says:

        I entered teaching as a second career so I wasn’t there long enough to catch a second generation, but I do live in the town where I taught middle school. My first students have kids now, and I meet them places and get their photos and stories on FB. There’s one little boy who is following in his dad’s footsteps. He’s a handful, but the kind of kid who steals a teacher’s heart. When he hits middle school, I might just sub a couple of days so I can embarrass him in front of his friends with stories about his dad.

    • swanspirit says:

      Nor should she apologize,
      I just listened to DT on the phone with Chris Cuomo on CNN, and all he did was bluster past question after question, refusing to give specifics. As an answer to a question about women, he said ” I cherish women, I will take care of women better than Hillary Clinton”
      When a female commentator on CNN compared him to Barack Obama, in that Obama had made campaign promises based on his ability to get things done; all the rest of the morning show people looked shocked, especially Chris Cuomo . How stupid can they be, that they never noticed that about Obama?
      PS. I don’t want to be “taken care of” by Donald Trump , or any other man that knows what is best for me.

    • votermom says:

      I don’t think that was good journalism. For example, in the question, she included “you said it would be a pretty picture to see a woman on her knees” and someone reminded me of the season of Apprentice that was from. Here’s the clip:

      I don’t remember any outrage at the time that aired, because it was a throwaway line for laughs that the PM set up.

      Similarly, what’s with asking Ted Cruz what God is telling him to do?

      It was more hostile witness cross exam to provoke a reaction unfathe jury won’t like than journalism imo.

      • NewOrleans says:

        It was good TABLOID journalism. I thought Megyn was better than that, but when she spent 3 days the week before talking about Trump being a rapist, it was obvious (to me, at least) that she was going to pull something during the debate.

        She wanted to provoke a reaction – and she got one. Too bad it was so vehemently against her!

      • Myiq2xu says:

        This country would be better off if the media raked every candidate over the coals. The Donald seems to have survived his grilling. Imagine if Obama had been given the same treatment 8 years ago.

        How a candidate deals with stupid and/or unfair questions reveals a lot about him/her. In England they treat political journalism like a contact sport. I remember Prince Charles getting asked a nosy question and him responding “If I knew the answer I certainly wouldn’t tell YOU.”

        New Gingrich, bless his little black heart, is really good at turning questions back on the interviewer. Bill Clinton is pretty good at it too, but his style is different.

    • Lulu says:

      This is her right. And it is her employer’s right to fire her if her ratings tank. Risk must be thought out and evaluated carefully. We will see if she and her handlers did that. I have no clue how it will turn out. Nor care.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        Fox started out as a 4th network. They got into cable news later. Right now they are the only one of the big four networks that doesn’t have a national nightly news. During the last couple election cycles Fox news dominated the cable news networks and even beat the big three.

        Megyn Kelly is their star pony.

        • leslie says:

          Aren’t they a “kind of news” station throughout the day? I don’t watch daytime tv much, but when I’m looking for news, I generally turn to CNN or to FOX. (I get most of my news from the radio). I wish the old CNN were still on the air. Just like I wish the old weather channel were still on. ;(

    Meanwhile, over in Indy…… :facepalm: I may just troll all these SJW hashtags today spamming the Chris Rock video on how not to get your ass kicked by the police 😀

    • leslie says:

      These idjits have no sense. At. All. They are as selfish as a two year old who has learned to say “No!’ and ” Mine!”
      I hope they have to wait an hour – more – when they need the help of the same LEOs they now attack. .

  9. Ann says:

    I laughed ‘I’ve had enough of the Kardashians!’ The moment a US news anchor walked off set during live broadcast in protest in at Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday coverage

      • DeniseVB says:

        They made him cover one of the Jenner girls naming her new pet bunny “Bruce”. I’m surprised he didn’t trash the studio. 😉 (Your DM link worked just fine!)

        • lildoggy4u says:

          I understand that anchor guy’s actions completely. I was listening to the news on NPR that morning and the lead was That girls 18th birthday. Are you kidding me? Our pathetic media just keeps getting worse and worse. Its called lazy journalism and I’d like to see more push back from media types on stories like this.

          • leslie says:

            I know I, too, nearly fainted when I heard that on NPR, ffs. Sometimes NPR covers some good stories. But their coverage of anything that might have an ideological flavor these days has me screaming at the radio. When I’m out walking for exercise, I have my radio plugged in and people can often hear me talking back to it – although I’m certain they think I’m talking to myself. I try not to scream while out and about. lol

          • 49erDweet says:

            Those aren’t stories. They’re promo-fluff pieces carefully timed into chunks to play between commercials. Most of them “fed” to the stations by promoters. Who also pay the stations in a quid pro quo arrangement for airing ’em.

          • DeniseVB says:

            I think the Kardashians are the National Media Squirrels 🙂

          • Lulu says:

            Kardashian’s are content filler. The Kardashians provide it free with video, still photos. butt shots, baby pictures, product placement, marketing, etc. The day is coming that everyone is so sick of them that they get chased back into their ugly houses.

    Rick Perry stops paying 2016 campaign staff in South Carolina

    Rick Perry is no longer paying his presidential-campaign team in South Carolina, and reportedly is not doing so anywhere else in the country either.


    • DeniseVB says:

      That gives me the sads, I like Rick who’s probably one of the more qualified in the field.
      I think Rand Paul’s in trouble too since he started attacking Trump again to get some media attention.

      • Lulu says:

        To me Rick’s highlight was during Katrina and Rita. Katrina because he helped our beloved neighbor state Louisiana. And Rita because it was an enormous and dangerous mess. This is a weak governor state. So being governor (and that includes Ann Richards and Shrub) don’t have much power. There is simply not enough room for Cruz, !Yeb (his old man and brother’s Texas money connections) AND Perry. And since Shrub Texas is not popular and I understand sometimes why. Too many open hands asking for money and he is the first told no.

      • NewOrleans says:

        You’re right about Rand Paul, Denise. According to PPP, Paul is ‘tanking’ in Iowa:


        The biggest loser in the poll is Rand Paul. He now has a negative favorability rating at 31/45. That gives him the worst numbers of anyone in the field, outdistancing even Chris Christie on the unpopularity front. Paul’s 3% standing represents a drop all the way down from 10% in April.

        • Lulu says:

          His “aggressiveness” plus the moderator’s aggressiveness was a negative for him. He took their bait which was dumb. Plus there is something “odd” about him. Perry and he will be out soon with no money and no polling.

        • leslie says:

          I agree with you all on his presentation, body language, facial expression and barely contained anger. Yes. He was having a bad night.

          • Dora says:

            A few days after the debate, Huckabee admitted on a television interview, that Rand Paul was feeling very sick that day. He almost had to miss the debate, but after getting some sleep he forced himself to go on. Throughout the entire night he was afraid he was going to have a ‘Bush in Japan’ moment. Some of you might remember that incident.

          • leslie says:

            well, that’s too bad for Paul. And it explains a lot of what happened. Thanks, Dora.

          • jeffhas says:

            It coudln’t have helped that Trump told him, “you’re not doing so well tonight”… oh well…

    • swanspirit says:

      That was a great read, VM thanks so much.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Thanks so much VM !! I especially loved the part in the War Room when the Trump mess was going down. I knew Erick had tried to get the Trump people to assure him if a woman asked him a tough question he wouldn’t go, well, Trumpy on her. EE’s concern was there were a lot of families there (many brought their teenage children) and didn’t want to expose them to anything like the Megyn smackdown. Trump’s people basically told EE to F-off The Donald will not be told what to do. Something like that, but it got lost in the media filters.

      I forgot to tell you all that I first found out about the “disinvite” was myiq’s late tweet I saw the next morning when I turned on the ‘puter to read with my first cuppa. Thought I had plenty of time, but could not get downstairs fast enough!

    • lyn says:

      Trump’s favorite movie is “Ragtime.” ROFL.

  12. driguana says:

    Hopefully, as the odd political process for the next president unfolds in its bizarre fashion, there really could be some very interesting debates. And it’s time for some real, deep discussion if someone, some entity could really make that happen instead of some right or left controlled media. Why can’t a real dialogue occur right now that would be meaningful? As a Fierce Independent, or Fiercely Unattached (FU) person, I have no favorites at the moment but here are some debates I’d like to hear: On the Future Economy – Trump vs. Sanders; On Racism – Carson vs Sanders; On Immigration Clinton vs Rubio; On Women’s Issues Fiorina vs. Clinton; On Foreign Policy Bush vs Sanders…..just thinking…Any other good ones come to mind?

    • Lulu says:

      Trump v Clinton on trade specifically. Graham (I know, I know) v Clinton on the military (spending, rules, size, etc). Cruz v Clinton on our legal system, courts, impact of not enforcing laws, regulatory growth and micromanagement. All Hillary. LOL. She needs to step it up and talk about stuff and a mini-topic specific debate is a great idea.

  13. swanspirit says:

    Someone should call CPS about that child. He is far too young to be in that situation. I am sure someone would yell racist, but at least the child would be out of harms way.

    • Lulu says:

      Yep. Child neglect, endangerment, something. If the kid and parents were trying to escape the area is one thing but posing for agit-prop. Nope.

    • leslie says:

      Those were my thoughts as well, Swannie. I couldn’t tell what he was doing, but he was definitely in harm’s way. It smacked of Hamas using children and women as shields, and private homes and school and hospitals to house their weaponry.

    • piper says:

      If he was white, CPS would arrest the parents and place the children in foster care – remember the free range roaming case (2 girls walking to and playing in the park near their home) in Maryland.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Judge Napolitano was amazed they didn’t have a curfew in place, then nobody would have been out there. Have a feeling the gov and mayor have their marching orders from DOJ and Obama’s summer palace.

      Also loved that Sheriff Clarke (a Dem) called this was it was……keeping the black voters angry through 2016 to shore up their votes……and it’s backfiring on Obama.

      • leslie says:

        I’m surprised that Sheriff Clarke has remained unscathed from retribution from the crazies.

      • lizzy says:

        It’s a con from Obama, Sharpton, Lynch all problems are racism. No jobs, no money, murdering thugs running the neighborhoods. Get rid of those racist police, end mass incarceration. So what if thousands of blacks kill other blacks-BLM.

    I’m not sure if it’s a revolution, but when Bernie draws the largest crowd we know that something is going on.

    Socialist Revolution? Bernie Sanders Draws Biggest Crowd Of 2016 Elections…

    • DeniseVB says:

      If Bernie visited my area and it was convenient to get to, I would definitely go. So I’m sure half those people are there out of curiosity and the joy of being at a rally in person. I’m sure the BLMers have guaranteed him big turnouts in the future 🙂

      Why doesn’t he have security to keep BLM off his stage ? Is it staged? If so, I look forward to Hillary having such an event in the future, where she can calmly reassure them that yes, ONLY black lives matter and she’ll have all white LEO’s shot.

      When Cruz jumped off the RS stage into the crowd, you should have seen security jump after him from the wings 🙂

    • Lulu says:

      The GOP makes The Donald look pretty good! The Republican elite (McConnell, George Will, etc) are reptilian. Both (and numerous other Republican office holders and media types) look like old turtles.

      • DeniseVB says:

    Doesn’t this remind you of when the tobacco companies and cigarette manufacturers hired scientists to show that smoking is not bad for your health? I guess scientists can be persuaded to find whatever results are desired at the time. 😦

  16. Myiq2xu says:
  17. Yesterday the NYT ran a story with a headline quoting a 9 year old saying he hoped racism would stop. It hit me then the psychological conditioning / damage so many of these young black kids are going through with this race-mongering bullshit. Once upon a time I thought maybe Obama would be worth it if only because some black youths might get a role model out of it, but I no longer think that. What a terrible thing to do to a child, to teach him or her that people they encounter routinely are out to kill him or her, when that isn’t true. It’s sad.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Agree. A lot of damage is being done for short term political tactics. Because #caring.

      “Remembering one’s blackness” is a billion $$$$$ industry. Has been for at least 6 decades. Why destroy an industrial base while it generates so much income?

      • leslie says:

        But so little – if any – of it trickles down to the people. They stay angry and disappointed, and hurt, and well —-> vicitms. 😦

        • 49erDweet says:

          It was never designed to trickle down, per se. Just like GM. The stake (yes) holders rake it in, dribble it out in the form of payment for services. Reference “The Rev-ah-runds”. Et al.

        • 49erDweet says:

          The more victims, the healthier the industry, btw.

          • leslie says:

            I know. but it shouldn’t be that way.. still 😦 after all these years.

          • 49erDweet says:

            Yep!!!!!! But we need to call ’em as we see ’em. In 1951 (yes) we had at least one fully integrated armed service with zippo race problems. Talk then among some black service members was that certain well known outside blacks were unhappy with that, trying to stir things up. SMH.

          • leslie says:

            well those “well known outside blacks” gave birth to the creeps, thugs and hoodlums that are currently stirring up the masses. And frankly speaking, there is much suffering. But there is also a population that is content that they currently “have it better” than they once did. I am speaking from 25 years of working with and among those very people. It feels as though the victimhood industry is now being led by many people who want something for nothing. And they are ready to punish anyone who has whatever those “leaders” want for themselves. It would make more sense for them to protest at huge businesses for jobs. But I don’t see that much.
            Amazon.com is opening a warehouse in the Joliet, IL area this fall/winter. They are hiring 1000 people for full time positions, offering $13 – $15 per hour, health insurance, college opportunities and other bennies that I’ve forgotten. I wonder just how many of the #BLM people will be pounding down the doors for jobs. Not that many because they won’t be able to riot in Baltimore, Ferguson, Milwaukee or wherever. They aren’t rioting in Chicago, heck, they aren’t attending the summits about how to stop gun violence in the ‘hoods, either.

          • 49erDweet says:

            Spot on. They seem to be stuck on unfulfilled expectations and looking for someone else to help. Sorta like the pioneers who sat around Dodge City waitin’ for the railroads to be built so they could discover the west.

          • 49erDweet says:

            And it goes w/o sayin’ we’re talkin’ about a minority within a minority.

      I ike the edited for length at the end. Of course Stewart has been carrying water for Obama the entire time. Duh. Really sad and pathetic that he seems unaware of that.

      • swanspirit says:

        I think he is aware of it, how could he not know he is a shill for Obama? He is just protesting for the sake of keeping the BS going. I think he knows exactly what he is doing, and he is as full of BS as Obama. OK no one could be that full of BS, but he tries.

      • Mary says:

        Oh, he’s aware of it. It’s part of his schtick to play like he’s not aware—-it’s part of his act.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I read a good article recently why the late night comedians are failing. It’s their job to poke fun at the current administration. Obama seems to be “hands-off” so the “jokes” are insufferable when Obama jokes just write themselves.

          I know I used to be a huge fan of Letterman, Maher and Stewart, but Obama just made them creepy.

          • DandyTIger says:

            When Obama was in and the Dems had a supermajority, they were all still making jokes about the mean old Republicans. As Molly Ivans always said, “Satire is traditionally the weapon of the powerless against the powerful. I only aim at the powerful. When satire is aimed at the powerless, it is not only cruel — it’s vulgar.” Not that Repubs were truly powerless even then, but they certainly weren’t the center of power.

    Ben Carson responds to Hillary Clinton on abortion

    “I spent my entire career as a pediatric neurosurgeon, frequently staying up all night, fighting, struggling to save the life of little babies, even operating on babies inside the womb. So I don’t think it should be hard for anyone to understand that I am totally opposed to killing babies,” Carson said on “CBS This Morning.”

    Those aren’t stories. They’re promo-fluff pieces carefully timed into chunks to play between commercials. Most of them “fed” to the stations by promoters. Who also pay the stations in a quid pro quo arrangement for airing ’em.

    If you watch your local news you will probably see some well produced stories that aren’t actually local. Often they will be talking about some new drug or invention. The local talking heads may introduce and close the segment but the voice over is done by someone else.

    These are filler content stories that the local station can run when there isn’t enough local news. But some of them are advertisements or PR pieces disguised as news.

    Mom is getting a catheterization this afternoon.

    • Somebody says:

      Thanks for the update, in fact I just popped on to see if there by chance was an update on your mom’s condition.

      I hope all goes well with the procedure; the doctors are able view everything and make an accurate diagnosis. Hopefully if there was any damage it was only minor. I’m sure you will be pacing the floors this afternoon! You and your mom remain in my thoughts and prayers.

      No biggie, they’ll probably insert a “balloon” thingy to fix a narrowed artery. I’ve been going through these things since my Special Greg was born with an aortic stenosis…43 years ago! ❤

      Not surprised. Pretty common way to deal with a little blockage. Sending good thoughts your way.

    • votermom says:

      Thanks for keeping us updated! Hope she is up and dragging you to Wally world again soon.

      Sending lots of healing for your mom, and some steadiness for your nerves. HUGS

    Sounds Racist: Hillary Locks #BlackLivesMatter Protesters Out of the Room at Campaign Stop
    Queen Hillary will not be disrupted. Period.

    The Hillary Clinton campaign locked out the #BlackLivesMatter protesters today at their campaign stop.
    They said the room was too crowded.

      Good for her. I’m tired of BLM — as I don’t think you should rank lives – who has it worst, etc, etc. For me – human kindness for all lives – dogs, cats, people ….. excluding cockroaches — those things creep me out

    Wow! Bernie is doing alright!

    Why a huge Los Angeles crowd turned out for Bernie Sanders

    They stood in a line that stretched for blocks around the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, eager for a glimpse of the star attraction: a sometimes cantankerous 73-year-old with unruly white hair and a populist message.

    “Feel the Bern!” they chanted. “Bernie! Bernie!”

    Q for my PA friends. Daughter wants to sell her shop and move to Easton. Far enough from NYC, but close enough she can get to town to teach basic ice skating skills at the “underserved” programs for the inner city kids. DiBlasio’s taxes are killing her 8 year old business, the more she makes the higher taxes she has to pay, she clears 7k a year after paying her taxes, bills and employees. She doesn’t qualify for assistance because she OWNs a business! So sad she says, Mom, I’d make more on assistance than working hard. So sad for her.

    Waiting for word from the hospital so I can go back down there.
