The New Ladies of the Lake


Somewhere in NYC a pretty young, white, disabled lawyer who rolls around in her automated wheel chair sitting Indian-style is hurting. It’s not Ariella Barker’s chronic pain from a rare facial nerve condition that is the source of her pain. No, it’s Bernie Sanders’ impatient, petulant treatment of the disabled, for which she tried, and tried, and tried to be a voice within the campaign.

Caught up in the reverie of Sanders rhetorical sway sometime last year, and feeling the intensity that can only come when one falls deeply in love with a candidate, her fall to the ranks of the imperfect Hillary Clinton has been hard. She’s cataloged her journey on a blog that she started some 6 years ago in order to frontpage her deep disappointment in her father in the wake of his death. It’s hard to tell if her propensity for falling for flawed people is a result of or in spite of her rocky relationship with her father.

Nevertheless, her post, titled Berned by Bernie, approximately her 33rd since starting the blog six years ago, has gone viral and ended up at the top of Memeorandum Friday. It has Bernouts berning with outrage, and Hillbots grasping the hilt of her sword to use it to fight the ruthlessness of Team Bernie. One thing you should know: TeamHillary has hired Ms. Barker to write about her story. No word yet on if the pay is enough to count against her disability income.

This, after a week of Roberta Lange making the rounds of all the major 24 hour news networks and playing the violent voicemails she’s received in the wake of  her shit show at the Nevada State Convention. After attempting to wait out the Bernouts for some 13 hours—and failing–she’s since been the victim of aggressive Bernie Bros. In painstaking detail on show after show, she’s told the story of how her phone now rings every single minute. The single mothers at the restaurant where she is Operations Manager can no longer buy diapers for their babies due to the fallout from her harassment, the poor dears.

The Bernouts are also quickly discovering the power of female pain-sharing. Exhibit A is author/ teacher/ activist Gayle Brandeis, who is so dedicated to Bernie that she went to the NV convention even though she was just a cloud after her father died. She went with her 6 year old son in tow. Awwwwww. Now, not only is she disillusioned by the machinations of intra-party politics at a caucusing convention, her 6 year old son now carries the pain of all her losses. Read it and weep, Hillbots. She was on your side until you jerked her dreams out from under her.

Do I seem sarcastic? I am. I can see from here that this will be the summer show. The style of these poor little victims, who write about their personal stories in waves of emotion and euphoria, will be de rigueur by the end of June. These well-educated women with their matrices of physical, emotional, and/or social problems, will flood the Internets in the same way their buddies have been flooding college campuses with protests for the last 18 months.  They will be squalling about safe spaces, or opportunity, or being bullied, and all manner of expensive solutions for what ails them.

These women cast themselves in the same frustrating mold that intellectual women have always cast themselves in: accomplished, but crazy, and deeply, deeply flawed. They are never normal, yet empowered, women. Think of it as the Virginia Woolf prototype of feminist. The craziness is what allows them to feel so deeply; the intellect helps to capture it all so searingly on the page. Their identities are caught up in what is now the traditional iconography of young, white feminism. They are privileged, well-read, and suicidal, like Woolf and Sylvia Plath, or sexually liberated like Anne Sexton (the irony!). They are comfortable being sacrificial, like the Lady of Shalott, handing off the sword to the truly powerful, to the one who was promised.

Virginia’s daughters all have rooms of their own, and they will spend the summer producing page after page of this claptrap in service to the Democrats. Most of it will be fiction, of course.

This is the new-old campaign model, folks. The narrative is ascendant once again. It’s time for some warm fuzzies and shoving personal pain down your gullet and calling yourselves satisfied. The sad, sad ladies of the left are ready to pour out their pain. They are triggered and drowning, an army of virtual Ophelias who believe that their beautiful visages alone will move their male cohorts to the malleable melancholy of Hamlet. Will it work? Time will tell. I have my doubts. One thing I know is this: history has shown that Americans are not sympathetic to the emotional displays  of women, especially white women.

    • This is cracking me UP. 46% has been trending for over 2 hours. It’s all Trumpsters & Bernouts tweets.

    • WMCB says:

      The details on that poll are interesting. Clinton is still winning women primarily because she gets college-educated women. Non-college women don’t like her very much. NONE of the men, in any education group, like her one bit.

      Basically, she’s banking her whole campaign on the black vote and the white female gender studies cohort and any men they can guilt into compliance. That’s it.

      • I think she’s working a plan to increase the gender gap to a level never seen before. She thinks she can be the LBJ of women. I think that’s a pipe dream and she underestimates how much she’s disliked among the younger cohorts of women.

    I have known women similar to the ones you describe. They use their crutches as weapons. They will beat you to a pulp with their crutches, and not think twice about it. And then berate you for complaining.

  2. Lulu says:

    Emotional vampires. Everything BAD always be happenin’ to them. Weird neurological disorders or gastrointestinal issues, etc that can’t be documented. Hysteria over nothing. Family clashes because they sucked up all the attention, money, time, and all of their parents and siblings were horrible to them. Then men (or women if they swing that way) problems. Then kid problems. Work and neighbor and money problems. Always problems. Never their fault because…..they are good and everything bad always be happenin’ to them. If you are unfortunate enough to be related to one of them or get sucked into their circle for some reason, you eventually realize that they are lazy, manipulative, grifters for everything from resources to time to affection and that nothing, NOTHING will be reciprocated. Sucking black holes of needy. This is just their usual pattern and it is being projected onto a old, seemingly paternal figure (free resources and free anger and bad behavior) of Bernie who is just another in an endless line of their disappointments because everything BAD always be happenin’ to them. Life is just one big disappointment because they are good and everyone else is bad.

    • Somebody says:

      Lulu, I didn’t know you had ever met my granddaughter’s baby mama, you just described her to a tee. Emotional vampire, a complete and total emotional black hole, why yes, yes she is. Always woe is me, actually thinks she’s so special she should have a reality show. Absolutely nothing but complete and total laziness and sorriness. Manipulative grifter you betcha!

      Speaking of the worthless one, she recently called to whine and complain to my son about how bad she has it in her new life. Apparently her boyfriend’s mom is now also on social security disability, the boyfriend has been on disability for years. So, so sad now that mom isn’t working, mom and boyfriend expect the worthless one to work and pay into the dope kitty and they’ve started charging her rent. She’s working two part time jobs.

      She had the nerve to call my son whining, crying and complaining. Telling him it just isn’t fair, this isn’t how it was supposed to be, she wasn’t supposed to have to work. She told my son she needed to rethink and refocus her life, she told him she was coming back. She told my son she was going to move into his bonus room so she didn’t have to work and that way she could be close so she could see the girls on her once a month supervised visitation days if she felt like it.

      Seriously it was all about her, not gosh I miss my children or I miss you. Nope, you have a bonus room over your garage I’m coming there to be a leech again and I might grace the children with my presence once a month if I feel like it even though I plan to be in the same house with them.

      As you might imagine my son declined, he wished her luck and said goodbye. Now she says she’s coming for a visit. She’s entitled to once a month supervised visitation, so my son told her to pick the date and the public place……..funny she hasn’t gotten back to him.

      • Lulu says:

        I described a composite of women (and a few men) I have known (and run from) over the past 40 years. Refuse to be manipulated by them and/or avoid them is all you can do. Always tell them to cut to the chase, you don’t have time for “stories” and what do they want and then say no.

      • foxyladi14 says:

        Somebody, Good for him, Stay strong. 🙂

      • leslie says:

        O. M. G. Lulu. You just described half my caseload over the past 25 years. I’m so impressed.
        It truly is all about them and how they’ve been abused, neglected, lied to, cheated, swindled, manipulated……. And how evil their own families and children have been/are to them. I’m saving your description and sending it to my former colleagues and asking them to “name that client”.

        • Jadzia says:

          Lawyers tend to see a lot of these folks, too. They come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and genders.

    • swanspirit says:

      They are always weak frail victims of life, until you “cross them” in some imagined way, or Goddess forbid , present reality, and suggest they do something themselves. Then Goddess help you, because they will mail you emotionally. Best to just stay away, I have learned.

    • Venus says:

      Great description Lulu. I know several of these emotional vampires. I used to get sacked into their drama and try to help, until I realized they didn’t want to actually do anything to change their situation, just bitch and moan that some genie in a lamp doesn’t come along to make them queen of the world as repayment for “all they have suffered.”

      I’ve cut every last one of them out of my life.

  3. Myiq2xu™ says:

    Female pain sharing?

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      Target got sued for something that happened in their store. The incident started outside the store when a homeless crazy man stabbed somebody and several bystanders chased him into Target where he attacked the girl. He was subdued, tried, and found “guilty but insane”. He’s doing about 20 years.

      The girl’s family sued Target. Target then filed against the heroes alleging that they endangered people by chasing the guy into the store. It’s called a “cross-claim” and the guys are third-party defendants.

      I don’t see why Target should be held liable just because a crazy man runs in their store and starts stabbing people. But if they can be blamed then the guys who chased the crazy man into the store can be blamed too. Depending on the jurisdiction Target might be able to escape liability by claiming that the proximate cause of the girl’s injuries was an intervening act. Or they could have their liability reduced.

      It’s bad PR for Target, and most people won’t understand why they did it.

      • votermom says:

        Ok that makes sense. Thanks klown.

      • blowme0bama says:

        This is really, really dumb. The most they’d get out of it is a most likely worthless judgment against the people who chased the bum in the store. Their liability may be reduced (MAY BE – depends on whether Joint & Several liability is in play and to what extent it has been modified by “tort reform” legislation) but it’s pretty damned likely they could argue against the “empty chair defendants”. The PR hit is huge for such a realistically worthless trial tactic.

  4. Dora says:

    Watch the picture for just a few seconds and be afraid.


  5. votermom says:

    Lola great post and really cool painting btw!

  6. helenk3 says:

    hope this works

  7. Somebody says:

    OMG, this is hopeless I’ll never find anyone to watch the g-babies so I can go with hubby on his business trip…….but if I don’t go then I’m choosing the g-kids over him, FML!

    Here is an applicant

    28 year old AA male, 0 years experience, no prior jobs, loves to cook and watch cooking shows, enjoys reading. He doesn’t have any experience with children, but he knows he’d be good with children and he needs a good paying job. What he’s been doing since he finished high school I have no idea, but he didn’t attend college. He only wants $50 an hour, that’s all. I wouldn’t hire him if he was asking $5 an hour, but the balls to ask $50.

    Then there is the creepster lady that has emailed me 8 fucking times in less than 24 hours, pleading insisting that she’d be great, that she’s perfect. She’s been working for another family for the past month and they have decided to put their child in daycare……hmmmmm. She’s far less expensive coming in at only $20 to $25 an hour.

    There is also a very nice young woman, a teacher with an excellent resume, but for what she wants I could hire a certified, bonded British trained nanny. The nanny route may be what we have to do, this is an affluent area so there is actually a company with trained nannies. My son can’t afford that though, we’ll have to help him out. He can take leave, but if he does that will most likely mean I won’t get any other vacation time until Christmas…….I’m selfish I want him to save his leave.

    I’m beginning to rue the day I signed up on these sites. I thought teenage unemployment was high? What about college students home for the summer?? The couple of girls I’ve talked to were kind of interested right up until the point they found out they had to get up early then forget about it.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Any good friends available to hold the fort down? I much rather throw money at a friend than an unknown list member🙂 Yes, and I insist on paying them.

      • Somebody says:

        No, everyone I know is working. I do know a couple of people that don’t work but the reason they aren’t working is because they have issues. You don’t hire someone you know is an alcoholic or drug addict to babysit.

        The one person that I know probably would do it isn’t home right now. Her husband just retired and they are out on the road. Another person that I know would do it met a guy on a cruise and is in the process of moving across country……hope that works out. All the moms on my street work full time, well except one and she’s unsuccessfully attempted suicide a couple of times ( outside on full display)……see Lulu’s emotional vampire comment. I’ll pass on that possible babysitter.

        • elliesmom says:

          Call the guidance counselor at the high school and ask if they know of a highly responsible junior or senior who would like a short term job. Tell him or her what you’re willing to pay. Some of them will refuse to get involved, but often they know of good kids who could use some cash and are qualified for what you’re looking for. Their reputation is at stake so if they decide to recommend someone, it will be a good kid. If you have a college nearby, you could post an ad on the bulletin board in the student center, but most colleges have pretty much shut down by this time and haven’t started summer classes yet.

        • votermom says:

          This is one of the things FB is useful for – my neighborhood has a closed fb group and a lot of baby sitting references and jobs get posted on it.

        • Myiq2xu™ says:

          You don’t hire someone you know is an alcoholic or drug addict to babysit.

          Picky picky. I was gonna offer to do it for pizza and beer.

        • mothy67 says:

          What about looking through a local church?

    • DeniseVB says:

      Aren’t you in the JaxFl area? Lots of day care centers that may be able to work with you? I just guessed and got these results ….

    • leslie says:

      What about daycare at your son’s school? He may not be able to afford it for a full year, but possibly a couple of weeks might not be too bad.

      • Somebody says:

        Daycare is out, none of them will take the kids for only two weeks, the minimum is 6 weeks. Which is one month, plus two weeks notice to pull them out.

        EM, I’ll try the high school but the last day of school is Thursday. As for college, my son works at a freaking college and I have asked and asked him to put something up on the student bulletin boards. Part of the issue is my son is FREAKED about the possibility of a stranger watching his children. That is why I was using the services since we can use them for background checks, but I’ve been less than thrilled with the responses.

        At this point it would be nice just to find someone for a couple of days during my trip to spare him some leave, but I doubt that will happen either. My son has some accrued leave and I think I’m going to stop fighting it and just tell him to take leave. I was hoping he’d take off a week in July and maybe another in October, but oh well. Taking the time off for our trip will still leave him with a week and a half. Plus he will continue to accrue leave every pay period so a week in the fall isn’t out of the question provided something unexpected doesn’t come up. He also has sick leave should he need it so it will be fine.

        I was just being selfish…….I was thinking hmmmmm let’s hire someone, I’ll help. They’ll need a week to get to know the kids before I leave town, so I’ll work half days. Then leave for two weeks and hey you know I’ll spring for another week after I return so I’ll have time to unpack and what not……..oh and then son why don’t you take the week of the 4th of July off??? Well look at that a month off for mom, LMAO!

    • mcnorman says:

      A friend asked me a few years ago if I had any good resumes. He is an attorney and quite tired of the millenial requirements for job advancement. I asked him what he meant. He said he usually hired out of high school to train to do the most basic tasks in a law office such as filing. The latest receptionist had worked for 8 weeks when she asked him how soon it would be before she was making $75,000.00 per/year? No college, just high school. Not able to use common computer programs either. About all she did was answer the phone. He paid her $15.00 p/hr in a town that pays minimum wage for almost everything.

      • 1539days says:

        I have the opposite problem. I am an experienced Engineer at a company that is now falling apart and overloading everyone. The people being hired for jobs I’d move to are the kids just out of college. My current theory is that employers in those cases want someone who is young and eager and willing to be exploited until they decide to move on. Then they just hire another kid out of college.

        • DandyTIger says:

          That’s a recipe for a failed company. Sadly that’s all too common. If you can manage it, be your own boss and do consulting. It is definitely rough out there.

      • Lulu says:

        And why does any one care what an old Socialist/Independent thinks? He isn’t even part of the party and never should have been allowed to run as one. This is another huge miscalculation by Hillary who “thought” letting the old fart “give her a little competition” would make it look more realistic that she hadn’t cut a deal in 2008 for 2016. She is so stupid it makes my head hurt. She “outsmarted” herself again.

  10. DandyTIger says:

    Brilliant post Lola!

    This reminds me of all the conversion stories from Hillary to Obama during the ’08 primaries.

    Also reminds me of the too amazing to be true stores in the heyday of GamerGate. A group of game journalists caught red handed doing unethical and illegal things with some game publishing companies tried to turn the tables on the gamers that caught them. So many convenient, dramatic victims, almost all hoaxes in the end. Of course there are nuts in every group, and some will say horrible things and even threats. Ah the convenience of all the noise diverting attention just when one group is caught doing something really bad.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Best part, I’m seeing some Hillary supporters saying the Bernie supporters are “gamer gating” women. Couldn’t be more perfect. They’re using the term to mean threatening rape. But the discredited hoax campaign of fake rape threats towards criminal game journalists and their allies to avoid talking about the crime itself is more apt than they know.

    • I’ve been thinking for a while that the ethos of the sides lining up in this election is the Gamer Gates Vixons Victims vs 4Chan GiveNoFuckers. We are in for quite a show if my suspicions on this are correct.

      I doubt these white whining whimperers will have much effect, but I’m curious to see what happened when the Mothers with Attitude make their showing at the convention in Philly.

      • DandyTIger says:

        I’m thinking they new GG/Bernie “victims” won’t have much effect. But then again, the Dems are all (and only) about victimhood. Would be funny to see the crooked Hillary branding be used by the Bernie group.

    • WMCB says:

      In truth, if you watch them awhile, many of the “white is so great” shitposters on Twitter are not actually weirdo white supremacist purists (though some are.) I’ve been covertly observing.

      What many (not all) of them are doing is kind of a “reductio ad absurdum”. I.e. “Oh, you want to play racial identity politics? Is that really what you want to do? Then if you want to play that game, we’re ALL going to play that game. How do you like them apples? Still want to play racial identity politics? You sure? Because we’ll stop when YOU stop.”

      Same with some of the male/female stuff. It’s pushing the flip side of the argument to the absolute extreme, in order to shake people out of dumb one-sided assumptions.

      • blowme0bama says:

        I’m sure that’s correct. Can’t remember the account, but the meme was:

        SJW: What? Wait a minute now!

        • WMCB says:

          Exactly. If they were *really* afraid of looming KKK on every corner, they would be behaving differently, not running around trashing the poor redneck whites every second. There is no actual fear of actual fascim – there’s only the use of that fear as a handy bludgeon.

          Much of the “shitposting” stuff is just a) calling their bluff and b) making the stuffed prog shirts squirm. I dislike some of it (and have no time for actual Nazis, etc), but I get why it’s going on.

      • WMCB says:

        Ha! There is much handwringing in press recently because “IN SPITE OF pro-family policies, workplace gender inequality is increasing in Nordic countries.”

        No, it’s not “in spite of”, dummies, it’s BECAUSE OF. Vast majority of women with children, if given the support and the choice, would rather be home more, working less. You can pontificate the livelong day about social constructs, but in the end WE bear children, and WE prefer to care for them and raise them.

        So if you have govt policies that support that, most women (while many still working) will avail themselves of the opportunity to be home with small kids. They just will. THIS IS NOT A FLAW in women that they need to be educated out of. Nor does it mean men are horrible and don’t love their kids. We’re just different, by and large (with all the usual allowances for ample exceptions, yada yada yada.)

        EQUALITY is both men and women being free to make any choices they want. It is not tinkering and manuveuring and browbeating until we all make the same choices and are properly androgynous.

    I do not have much sympathy for today’s “feminists”. I think most of them are really twits that do not have a clue. When you work in mostly male industries before “feminism” became a false rallying cry, you learned real fast that Respect must be earned. You learned how to get it.
    you did not scream YOU OWE ME. or I am just so special, You did the job to the best of your ability and do not expect special favors. You did it better than a lot of males and other females. You took the time to learn the job, understand the job, and just how it interconnected with other parts of the company. You learned communication with other parts of the company and how you could make things work better together. And guess what you earned and received Respect and promotions and better salaries.

    I will give you a couple of examples of women who used to drive me nuts.
    we had a single mother, who EVERY NIGHT, would come in late and would blame her kid for her lateness. The person she was relieving had to catch a train or wait 3 hours for the next one. One night she was my relief and as usual came in late. Now I had worked for years with 4 kids.
    I explained to her that I did not screw her, I did not get her pregnant, and it was not my problem that she could not get her act together and come to work on time. Now only another woman and mother could say that to her. It shocked her and woke her up. She was never late again when she was my relief. Now every mother has times when things come up with her kids and she has to miss work or be late. that is a fact of life. But not every night and they do not have the right to expect the people she works with to suffer for her home life.

    My kids were taught not to call me at work for silly things. Call only for important things. Too many times I saw women spend more time on the phone with their kids than actually doing the work they were being paid to do.

    Please understand where I am coming from. When I first started working employers did not want to hire married women with kids, or sometimes young single women because they would marry and have kids. A lot of that has changed Thank God. But when I see women do the things that the employers gave as reasons not to hire them, I cringe

I told her she could call in sick, but she couldn’t call in dirty; and to put a pot of water on the stove, heat it up, wash up and come in to work. She came in.
      Hillary will lose this election so badly if she plays the whining woman card.

      What happened to strong women, who run businesses, institutions, and governments?
      Oh right, they need husbands to do the math for them. I swear, I about had a cow when Hillary said she would let Bill do the “economics” What a completely anti-feminist thing to say!! What else is she going to let Bill do?

        I know, right? She’s running on Obama’s legacy record, proves she’s “stupid”. Hillary even spoke at some Trayvon Martin Foundation event. WTF?

        • Prediction: Mothers with Attitude (aka Dead Sons Club) is going to be featured at convention. Take it to the bank. Hillary speeches at their events are the cost of admission.

    this was on facebook

    Attention VETERANS….I was not aware of the fact that when a Vet applies for Social Security, he should take his DD214 with him, The amount you get from Social Security is increased if you served between 1957 and 2001. If you do not take your DD214 and ask for the benefit, the Social Security office WILL NOT ADVISE YOU about the benefit. I was unaware this benefit exsisted until last Friday. Another Vet handed me the correspondance you see printed. I wouldn’t have asked for this benefit, and our government has choosen to keep it a secret. That’s BS. Please pass this VETERAN info along. Or some Vet might miss out.

    I like stirring the pot. 😀 So damn tired of these whiny-ass women. They make us all look bad. Even if the men are wrong on something, ARGUE IT. Don’t go crying that the mean penis people aren’t allowed to contradict you, because penis.

    I just saw an odd commercial telling people to wear orange for Gun Awareness Day? The people in the commercial all look like prison work details. Color me confused.

    Are we going to have knife awareness and baseball bat awareness because last time I looked they were far more popular weapons.

    It is Memorial Day week (I am surprised BO has not renamed that holiday).

    I know it is late and this thread is almost closed. But I hope you guys get to see this video of Larry King’s interview of Melania and Donald Trump from 2005. It is sweet. Enjoy!

    Acapulco was a glamorous destination for many years. This is what Mexican drug gangs and corrupt officials have done to this city.

    “On the spreading discontent with the centralisation of political authority in Brussels, Mr. Wilders said yesterday the Eastern European states were most sensitive to totalitarianism, having only recently liberated themselves. He remarked:

    “The eastern Europeans have already experienced what it is like to live under totalitarianism, they know what Moscow rule meant. Nobody knows that better than the Poles, the Czechs the Slovaks and the Hungarians.

    “So they know, when they see another totalitarian monster – this time it’s dressed up a little differently; this time it’s called Brussels instead of Moscow – but it still wants to take their national sovereignty and identity and change their country. And people are saying: ‘enough is enough’.”

  49. taw46 says:

    Again, who is paying for this?

    “She said the journey so far had cost nearly 22,000 euros (17,163 pounds) for her and her three children, in payments to smugglers. For the next leg she will have to pay again, with smugglers charging up to 1,500 euros to travel through Serbia into Hungary.

    Saman Ali Vjestica of the Asylum Information Centre said smugglers demanded 7,000 euros to get people from Greece to western Europe, or 15,000 from their country of origin. The route into Serbia via Bulgaria is cheaper but migrants say they suffer more there at the hands of smugglers and security forces.

    Routes through Serbia are often controlled by smugglers from Pakistan or Afghanistan, with locals providing transport and accommodation, Asylum Centre officials said.

    Serbia’s people-smugglers are looking for a share of a business worth more than $5 billion in southern Europe last year, according to international police agencies.”
