      Feminist Camille Paglia ripped modern feminism, Lena Dunham, and “soulless” Hillary Clinton in a recent interview published by Spiked.

      “People don’t lay a glove on her,” she said. “The woman has never succeeded in any job, she’s created chaos after chaos, including now all of North Africa spilling its refugees into Europe, and it’s due to Hillary for taking out Gaddafi and not thinking about what would happen afterward.”

      “I think she’s absolutely soulless,” she said. “I think she’s incompetent.”

      Clinton isn’t the only woman whom Paglia thinks has co-opted feminism to use as a tool for her own personal gain.

      “Lena Dunham to me is the symbol of neuroticism which masquerades as feminism,” she said. “I mean, Lena Dunham has a lot of problems that have to do with body image that have nothing whatever to do with wider society but have to do with the cast of her own family life and her own family background.”

      Dunham uses feminism as a platform to project her own personal struggles, particularly her struggles with her own body image, onto the rest of society and find an external outlet to express them, Paglia said.

      “The way she presents herself physically, it’s like: ‘Look I’m just presenting myself exactly as I am,” she said. “The implied blame [is] that ‘If you find me ugly, you don’t understand. I am woman, as she is, and you are sexist!’”

      “I’m sorry, no,” Paglia said. “You’re just a big pile of pudding!”

      • Lulu says:

        “big pile of pudding!” is a polite euphemism for you know what. LOL.

      • Jadzia says:

        I don’t disagree with Paglia about Lena Dunham, but I’m also not a huge fan of her “Regina George’s mom” approach to feminism (“I’m not LIKE the other feminists…. I’m a cooool feminist.”)

    I have finished nine books since Wednesday.

    Wow! Just Wow!


  4. Dora says:

    Brian is doing the show this morning from the Massapequa Diner! It’s a few minutes from me. Hubby and I were planning to have breakfast there after we vote. I guess the cameras will be gone by then.

    • Lulu says:

      Cool. That looks like fun. All we got was a Weather Channel truck driving through yesterday. I saw them parked at IHOP. I think they were headed to Houston.

    2nd night in a row that I wake up 4- 2 -2 pattern ( 4 hrs then 2 hrs and another 2 hrs)
    Technically 8 hrs.
    I’m sleepy.

    Anyone surprised? NO!

    Obama plans to veto bill allowing 9/11 families to sue Saudi Arabia


    • Lulu says:

      The Saudi’s still won’t invite prezzy special snowflake to come hang out for some freebies post presidency. They don’t like him and think he is a dumbass. And his Iranian policy and the Saud’s own stupid sponsorship of terrorism is going to get them overthrown. And it wlll hurt Hillary. So of course he will. They have lost control of OPEC so f’em and they are going to be broke soon enough anyway. Just seize their shit until it is all resolved. It can wait until January.

      Did anyone read the WaPo that Bronco ain’t got no international friends? Because he is so smart and awesome. LOL. The honorarium and jet setting is going to be sparse for Bronco and the little lady. Even the UK and India are telling him “butt out dumbo”. The international pariah.

      • DeniseVB says:

        It doesn’t appear he has friends here either. Hangs out with his choom buddies on vacation and plays golf with his aides. Sneaking out to 5-star dinners always includes his WH inner circle too with ValJar in the lead.

  8. Dora says:

    They are so eager to vote. 🙂

  9. Dora says:

    One more NY post. I’m so excited today. 🙂

    Toby Keith a few years ago almost end

  11. elliesmom says:

    I expected the Bernie crowd in my FB timeline to be all about the primary in NY today, but they’re still hung up on the gender neutral bathroom thing. A solution was proposed to make men’s restrooms gender neutral. George Washington University changed the signage on its Law School men’s room doors and put locks on the outside door. If someone uses the bathroom, which has one stall and 3 urinals, and wants privacy, he or she can lock the outside door making it temporarily a single use bathroom. No changes in plumbing or any other major renovation required. Only cost to a business or to the taxpayer is a new sign and a lock for the door. Any person, male, female, or gender confused can choose to use the bathroom. The women’s room remains the women’s room satisfying those women who have concerns about sharing with possible predators. You’d think this would be a commonsense approach. Given how few transgendered people there are, the inconvenience to men is minimal. While tearing out all of the communal bathrooms and making every bathroom single use is OK with them, having a communal bathroom for biological women included in the mix is not. Which confirms for me this issue has nothing to do with safety for the transgendered. It’s once again about showing women where they stand in the political hierarchy.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Well, not to be indelicate, but where they sit……

    • Jadzia says:

      That last part is actually the source of my growing disenchantment with the gay movement. Feminists are expected to devote tons of time and energy to LGBT rights because intersectionality! While not asking any questions because white women tears!

      But where is the LGBT movement when it comes time to fight for women’s rights? There might be a press release here and there, but other than lip service I see none of the kind of pressure brought to bear that is always put on women. Because apparently we’re supposed to put everybody else’s interests ahead of our own, unlike every other interest group in the country.

  12. taw46 says:

    Just filed the suit yesterday.

    • Anthony says:

      Jacobus and other bottom feeding “campaign strategists” (like Rick Wilson) are flipping out because THEIR gravy train is also coming to an end.

      The first people any prospective competitor hears from after they throw their hat into the ring are a throng of strategists hoping to make big bucks off of the campaign and the donors/lobbyists who are funding it. It is akin to being a pimp – your professional whores do all the work, and you just rake in the bucks for doing nothing but pimping them out.

      Problem for people like Jacobus and Wilson is that a candidate like Trump does his own pimping, and to date, has not lain down with one single john.

    • lyn says:

      Trump exposes the ugly in American politics.

      • foxyladi14 says:

        We peons knew this, but it takes someone like Trump, to really put it all out there. 🙂

  13. NBD says:

    Maybe Donald should start speaking from prepared remarks:

    “”It’s very close to my heart because I was down there, and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down, and I saw the greatest people I’ve ever seen in action,” Trump told the crowd.”

    Funny, somewhat embarrassing, but I doubt it will hurt him.

    • lyn says:

      That will sink Trump’s ship. LOL. Obama’s gaffes didn’t hurt him, but then the global traitor class used the race card to ensure that the first black president ran roughshod over the country without a peep.

      • Anthony says:

        “Down at 711” isn’t the same as “On 9/11”. I know someone who had a copy center across the street or catty corner (forget which) who said that firemen, police and other volunteers used several small businesses as impromptu headquarters throughout the recovery mission. That remark could just as easily be accurate as inaccurate. I will say, though, that its wonderful fodder for concern trolls across the nation.

        • lyn says:

          Chomp, chomp.

        • lyn says:

          Good catch, Anthony.

        • Somebody says:

          Didn’t the world trade center buildings have numbers? I know 7 world trade center was one of the buildings was there an 11?

          You could be right about it too Anthony, maybe they were gathering at a 7/11. Typically first responders set up a staging area near a big disaster.

          • Anthony says:

            There was no 11 as far as I know. What I do know is that a number of delis and small businesses (like my friends place) were used as command posts. I participated in the rescue/recovery for 26 days before I burned out. We would meet in a coffee shop and get our location etc from coordinators there. Anyone without a badge couldn’t get below 14th St (at first) and later Canal.

            For all I know it may have been a gaffe on Trump’s part, but what I do know for sure is that politicians,, news personnel, big wigs, etc. were escorted into many of the locations I mentioned above to make their speeches, public statements, etc.

            Either way, its much ado about nothing

          • Jadzia says:

            That was a gaffe? I guess I haven’t been paying enough attention to the news. As somebody who is unspoiled, I assumed that he was talking about a 7/11 that was being used as a staging area.

            Do I get a valuable prize?

          • Jadzia says:

            What’s second prize?

            Two memberships.

            I need a kick in the ass to finish this dissertation. I am sitting here pretty much in tears because I have 9 pages to go and I literally cannot force myself to open the file.

            Perhaps I should be describing this fear of success to a psychiatrist, except I can’t because my French sucks and I an avoiding enrolling in a French class because I NEED TO FINISH THIS FUCKING THESIS first.

          • Myiq2xu™ says:

            Do what I always do at times like that – run naked thru the neighborhood.

          • Jadzia says:

            And get a free 72-hour hotel room with no distractions! : )

        • DeniseVB says:

          7th Ave and 11 St cross near the Village. North of Canal which makes sense since below Canal was shut down to traffic. Who knows what could have been temporarily set up there? Fodder, indeed 🙂

      • CiscoKid says:

        X 2 !

    • DeniseVB says:

      I bet he knows how many states are in the U.S. 😉 7-11 is a common gaffe, I catch myself goofing it up now and then. Glad Fox News is on it instead of Michelle Obama sneaking over to the UK to have dinner with William and Kate Friday night. The WH didn’t disclose that on the Presidential travel schedule for this week. Kensington Palace did. Oops 😀

    • lyn says:

      This is trending on Facebook and bringing out the haters.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I read (heard it in my head) it in a similar vein to what Anthony mentioned. As “down at” not “on”. Possibly referencing the spots where responders were working out of to coordinate efforts. Small businesses often lend a hand in emergencies. We have a 7/11 downstairs in our building. The center sits right along Arlington Boulevard in Virginia just a couple miles west of the Pentagon. It is always used as a staging area for snow removal, utility crews, road work, whatever. On 9/11, responders were indeed down at 7/11, at McDonalds, the Mail Box Center and in tents set up in the parking lot handling logistics on road closures and controlling access in the area. You could hear them giving the location and the generally referenced the closest intersection and/or the business if they were inside.

      Trump has never bothered to homogenize his speech patterns. Trump would reference as a New Yorker. Not as an MSM bobble head.

      Or maybe DJT just prefers 7/11 coffee to Starbucks. Wanted to give them a shout out and decided to make silly peoples heads explode at the same time just for fun.

    • smangala says:

      I have heard that the reference might be to http://fdgreenville.com/ one of the first responders on 9/11

    • Ann says:

      Hubby and I went out tonight and the local 7-11 had a sign in front:

      “Vote for Trump
      Free Slurpee”


  14. DeniseVB says:

    From the NY primary “war zone”. Reading this article and the comments made my head spin. Very confusing. Hey, but NY doesn’t require voter i.d. because that suppresses the votes or something!

    Still loving my new camera! Olympus PEN E-PL6 totally rocks!

      This is my Montana.

    • foxyladi14 says:

      Awesome Anthony. 😀

    • CiscoKid says:

      The picture of that purposes flower is National Geographic quality.
      I have an old Ashia Pentex 35 mil camera sitting in a box somewhere
      Haven’t shot anything in years, hell, I don’t even know if film is still being made.

      • CiscoKid says:

        …PURPLE flower…

        • Anthony says:

          The other pic doesn’t look so special, but what impressed me was that those little blue wildflowers were insisting on showing themselves to the point of pushing through the debris left from winter. They are surrounded by dead leaves, dry twigs and other signs of nature’s death.

          It was if they were insisting on bringing signs of Spring to us, and defiantly broke through the mantle of dead organic material to make their point. A modest and humble photo subject with a powerful message about how unstoppable the life force can be

          • Myiq2xu™ says:

            I was just thinking that that they were pretty flowers.

          • Anthony says:

            Me too. Then my mind started wandering and waxing all poetic and shit…

          • CiscoKid says:

            I was looking at your photographs with the eye of a never won a contest or had a photo published amateur photographer.
            You might want to invest in a good light meter and maybe a tripod.
            Don’t mean to come across as a know it all a-hole.
            Shot my first roll of film in ’67 and kept on till sometime around ’96/’97.
            Photography is a great hobby, maybe I’ll dig out that old Pentex.
            Good luck!

          • Anthony says:

            Thanks, Cisco! At this point, I’m only playing with it. Just learning settings etc. Its not a ‘point and shoot’ camera so its a little more hands-on than I’m used to but I’m looking forward to learning something new 🙂

    • blowme0bama says:

      Very nice Tony. I bought a used Canon 7D a couple years back and got caught up in lenses, attachments, blah blah. Quite a bit of fun. Ended up spending a lot of time driving along back roads looking for flowers to photo. Glad you’re getting a lot of enjoyment out of it as well.

      • Anthony says:

        Thanks for the encouragement! Just ordered a remote clip mic, macro and zoom lenses yesterday. This is getting a little pricy, but I’m totally down with it. Taking it to the Metropolitan Museum later – have an opportunity to go into those dusty basement archives with a collections coordinator and shooting ancient Etruscan artifacts for a project I’m working on

        • blowme0bama says:

          If I can make a suggestion, take a look at used lenses. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/ has a grading scale for the quality of their used equipment and there’s a lot of inventory turnover so there’s frequently new items available every week.

          • Anthony says:

            Thanks for that! Thats where I’ve been shopping. They’ve been amazingly helpful in helping me choose and staying on/under budget. I first saw the used/refurbished link on their site yesterday (after ordering of course), and will be going there later this afternoon. Dangerous for me that they’re so close lol

    Got my tickets to see Donald Trump, they were free, just had to print them. This event is 6 miles from my home. I don’t know why he chose this venue, it isn’t that large, but I don’t care. Some locals are planning a protest, and I know some of them. One of their ideas is to get stoned ( It’s 4/20 after all) and then go protest. I doubt they will make it off the couch 🗽🗽🗽🗽

    • DeniseVB says:

      If you have the time, go super early to get the best seats. I know they overbook these events to prevent empty seat protests. You might not have to worry since you’re not in a heavily populated area? I love that Trump is reaching out to Americana USA 🙂

  21. CiscoKid says:

    Get stoned, then order a pizza… yea, they ain’t going anywhere.
    Meanwhile, another addition to the Obama legacy.


  22. Dora says:

    Two more votes for the Donald.

    Hubby and I voted earlier at the local school. The room was practically empty, but it was still early – about 7:15 AM. The side of the room for democrats was totally empty. No line at all in front of the voting machine. There were a few people at the republican machine, so Tom and I got on line and cast our votes. He was number 40 and I was number 41. We went to the diner for breakfast and relaxed for a while, but we’re back now.

    The polls are open until 9:00 PM. I have a feeling this is going to be a long day.

    • Ann says:

      My son makes me laugh. In 2008 he cast his first ever vote for Obama. In 2012 when I asked him if he was voting for President, he told me, “No. I screwed that up so badly I may never vote again.”

      So I just got a text from him asking me to confirm our polling place. There was some judicial order this morning for provisional ballots for registered Independents (which he is) to cast a ballot.

      I told him, “Another vote for Trump, huh?”

      He responded, “You know it!”

      I am sure he’s going to slap one in for Bernie just to say he did. I think he figures he can make both my head, and his girlfriend’s head, explode. A twofer!!

    True story 😉

    • Lulu says:

      It is not quite that simple in Texas but whatever.

      • DeniseVB says:

        It’s that simple in Virginia. Open primary don’t have to register by a party, everyone gets to vote, just ask for the R or D ballot after you show photo i.d.

        • leslie says:

          Here in IL we basically check in sans ID, ask for a specific party ballot and vote. And as long as Chicago is in Illinois, it won’t likely change. This is both in early voting as well as Election Day voting.

          • lyn says:

            With Oregon’s mail-in ballots, the clerk checks the signature on the envelope. If it doesn’t look right, the voter is called. I also can check online to make sure my ballot was accepted.

    • AFVet says:

      I think that a couple of Trump’s kids didn’t get registered in time.

    • mothy67 says:

      I will re-register as I after convention. Sick that the RNC and DNC pay no taxes. Nor does NFL, NHL, MLB, Emmy’s, Oscars, Tony’s, Grammy’s.

      When I first saw that news I thought Shaun King’s next column’s going to be a doozy, then I saw he was trending on twitter over some palagarism problem? One of his editors got fired? Crazy story, just gave the thread a quick scan, something, something, blaming Chelsea Clinton something.

    CNN calling it for Trump with only 1% of the votes in? Switched from Fox when I saw some NeverTrumps on Megyn’s panel.
