    People need to go to prison.

  2. We are already on Flag Burning, Day 2

    Trump trolls the media with a tweet about flag burning and they freak out like a pack of over-caffeinated chihuahuas.

    Gab says Assange is missing.

    • lateblum says:

      I thought I read it yesterday (on Gab). He reportedly hasn’t been seen since October 10th.
      Is that possible.?

      Oh hell no we’re not bailing out the snowflakes. My daughter took out a loan for part of grad school, she lives in a dump and has scrimped to pay extra and pay off her loan in a couple of years……you know like a responsible adult.

      I don’t think we should be footing the bill for poor life decisions. My kids didn’t borrow money to get a BA in gender studies or a master’s in puppetry arts. The people that made such bad life choices should have to live with those choices NOT the US taxpayers

      • When they die and leave no estate the loans will be forgiven.

      • Constance says:

        That sucks. Some of those snowflake credentialing factories have huge endowments and the government should be pressurizing the colleges to help out their students that they encouraged to go in to debt. Tax payers should not be bailing out these people or the banks.

      • Jadzia says:

        TL/DR RED ALERT:

        I would have no problem at all dumping some of the responsibility on the colleges and universities themselves. We didn’t have this student-loan problem a few generations ago before “free” student loan money essentially encouraged piggy schools to spend more and more and more and jack tuition higher and higher. Most of the universities of the 1970s didn’t have huge public-relations operations, huge physical plants, huge sports programs (with what connection to the academic mission?–none that I can see), senior administrators making hundreds of thousands of dollars, and all the other nonsense that students are basically paying for. Even community colleges have bloated up their administrations. Who can resist “free” money that your students will have to pay back, especially when those students have been told all their lives that education is a necessity if they want to do something other than work at McDonald’s? (I’m not saying this is necessarily true, but it’s definitely the message that is given. My own 17-year-old son, who is not academically oriented and would be SO MUCH BETTER OFF if he were to learn a trade or do anything other than go to a standard four-year university right now, believes this. Because that’s what he is being told by all of his teachers and every member of his family except for my husband and me. I think sometimes we overestimate the ability of an 18-year old to comprehend the long-term financial consequences of student loans, even if we do allow that same 18-year-old to enlist in the military.)

        Tell the colleges and universities hey, keep charging what you want. But if your students default (and can show a true inability to pay, true inability to find a job, there are plenty of ways to limit abuse), THE SCHOOL can pay back those loans. (And rescind the defaulters’ degrees/certifications/credentials as a punishment for defaulting, if that’s how they want to roll.)

        I think this solution would encourage schools to “encourage” their students to study practical subjects while still allowing them to take minors in interesting but impractical subjects like philosophy, _________ studies, the arts, and what have you. But limit the seats in those courses so that’s not the ONLY subjects that end up being studied, and maybe reinstate real math/science/Western Civ/language/writing requirements while you’re at it. This solution also might encourage the schools to eliminate administrative bloat so that students are not being charged obscene amounts of money in the first place. Yes, students might enjoy the student center or whatever, but I’ll bet that a lot of them (average students, not the special snowflakes who make the most noise) would agree to shut down the “frills” in a hot minute if you told them that their tuition and fees would go down by 25%.

        Also, shut down half the law schools in America.

        • 1539days says:

          This is where the free market would fix some problems. College tuition went up because demand for college degrees went up.But the demand was based on the idea that anyone should have access to a college degree regardless of tuition price. If enrollment was limited to people who could afford to take on loans, the schools would have to provide some incentive, like proving that a degree from them could get you a job that paid enough to pay off those loans.

          I ended up going to a medium priced college for a while, mostly on loans and it took decades to pay them off. Had I gone to community colleges or state schools earlier, I’d have the same education and more money in my pocket. Parents with college degrees should be imparting this knowledge to their kids.

  8. Pretty sure I’ve been ghost-banned on Twitter for some time now. Nowhere near the likes and retweets I used to get, with over 400 followers, my all time high. Oh well.

    • DandyTIger says:

      And I dare say if the state of Michigan can’t certify votes before Dec 13, or whenever needed, Trump would no longer be under any obligation to bring jobs to MI. Just something they may want to think about in the state.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Blank votes? A lot of people just vote down ticket and leave the president pick blank because they don’t like the choices.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        Is this not just what GW and Laura said they did on their ballots? So Jill has a crystal ball to say who these voters would have picked if forced to make a choice? No wonder Jill the Pill loved Castro.

    • Lulu says:

      They are literally driving themselves mad with the paranoia. They can’t watch a television show because “every couple featured voted for Trump”? People who buy houses voted for Trump? People who are couples voted for Trump? People on television shows voted for Trump? This is loony tunes mania stuff here. And most “writers” this crazy have enough sense to keep this hidden because it would affect their employment. But it appears to be the norm for the lefties so they just blab it everywhere like f’ing Twitter so everyone can see they are nuts. They are a danger to themselves and the public.

      • lateblum says:

        Maybe they’ll just sit around the flag bonfires they set and eat Cheetos and Kellogg’s cereals and all the other processed foods that they now have to buy – despite their healthy lifestyles and get fat and lazier than they already are and rejoice that they have no people of actual worth in their miserable lives. They are truly nuts.

    • Lulu says:

      Proggy Willis doesn’t believe in human equality in opportunity or in the law but “equality” in outcomes which never works. Willis needs a job that takes up more of his time, energy and brain-power so he isn’t so resentful of others more successful based on merit and hard work. Sitting all day, “writing” butthurt or virtue signaling tweets requiring nothing but his finger tips is no way for a younger man like him to spend his life.

  11. Venus says:

    Beautiful, amazing 13 minutes of MSNBC fail on election starting with Trump’s announcement that he was running in June 2015 to his win:

  12. CiscoKid says:

    The outlandish lies is still amazing.
    “Deportation force”
    “Going door to door, business to business and deport 10 million”
    “Banning all muslims”
    It was great to watch again.

    • Lulu says:

      It is looking like appointing Mitch McConnell’s wife Sec of Transportation (Old Turtle was so happy she has a job that he was giggling) is going to get Sessions fast tracked through the Senate confirmation, then he will hit the employers of illegals fast and hard, and start cutting off the money to states who prefer illegals to citizens and let states who don’t want to pay for them with their own tax money cut’em off. All of that lovely progressive cost shifting is coming to a screeching halt. The illegals will not be physically touched at first but rather Sessions’ plan to CUT OFF THE MONEY will be employed to encourage self-deportation. The whining is going to be epic. The battle plan is shaping up to be ENFORCEMENT, ENFORCEMENT, ENFORCEMENT. Of existing laws. Criminals will be repatriated to Mexico if they don’t head south first.

  15. Lulu says:

    I have backed off of “media” with the holidays and it was rather pleasant. The little I have seen in the past couple of days has been shall I say shocking. The Dems and proggies and lefites seem very insulted that Carrier is not going to be building cheap-ass shit in Mexico with slave labor, and that other companies may not be importing as much cheap ass shit into the country and that THEY may have to pay for “expensive” stuff made in the US. The fact that large swaths of the US are un or under-employed makes not one whit of difference to them if they can’t get their cheap ass shit and can get more cheap ass shit for their crummy little salaries. These are supposedly Dems or LIberals or Progs or whatever the fuck they are calling themselves. So far I haven’t seen them going ape-shit over cheap services (H1B or illegal labor) but that is because they are too stupid to connect that dot yet. The selfishness, stupidity, grubby grabbing of cut rate and inferior mess that they want for cheap so they can live their indulged, lazy, useless superior, virtue signaling lying, globalist apparatchik existence is disgusting. This is now the easy, fast buck, gimme’s of the Dem Party. How disgusting. And they wonder why they lose elections.

    • Lulu says:

      And speaking of H1B. My son was talking about an IT start up that goes in and fixes what H1B’s fuck up. Hoo boy. Talk about expensive! One cable network in NYC laid off all their tech people last year and replaced with H1B’s. to save less than a million a year. And this was in the middle of going digital too. It is so fucked up they had to go outside the company to fix it. Cost: 17 million for some goobers from North Carolina to redo it all. And they wouldn’t even come to NYC to do it but would only do it working remote. Fixing f’ed up shit costs a lot more than doing it right to begin with.

        Lulu rants go great with coffee in the am😁😁😁😁

        • Lulu says:

          I have been on a “cheap ass shit” fury lately. People are addicted to buying a lot of cheap ass shit instead of quality stuff that lasts and not so much of it. I want less stuff but better stuff. And I want my fellow citizens to have a decent, well paid, productive life because I am an old timey Liberal. Glad it goes with your coffee!

          • taw46 says:

            Since my mother and her five brothers grew up during the Depression, we learned not to waste and to make things last. I must admit, I have stayed that way most of my life. So it really irks me to have to throw away coffee makers, vacuum cleaners, etc., because no one repairs anything anymore. And even if you can find a repair shop, it is always cheaper to buy new. And computers and smartphones? They keep updating operating systems until yours is outdated and unsupported, so you are forced to upgrade.

        I love, love to wake up to Lulu rants! The best anywhere!

      • Somebody says:

        My son has had to fix stuff f’ed up by H1B’s too. Believe it or not the college where he works cut a bunch of IT positions a couple of years ago and outsourced a LOT of stuff to a contractor that employs H1B’s. My son is part of what is left of a skeleton IT crew. In his previous job he dealt with a LOT of H1B’s not only within his company, but also the other companies he himself was contracted out to.

        My son insists that A) most of the H1B’s have made credentials from diploma mills in India and other locations and B) They lack critical thinking skills, even the ones with legitimate credentials.

        I really, really hope Trump is serious about stopping the abuse of H1B’s. I guess at a minimum AG Sessions sure as hell is and there are laws about displacing Americans that until now haven’t been enforced. So many of the millenial generation have some kind of STEM degree despite the lies constantly put forth by the COC. There are millions of people with STEM degrees not working in that field because they can make more money elsewhere. Through outsourcing, H1B and other types of foreign worker programs the salaries in most STEM fields has plummeted.

        • Lulu says:

          There is no need for ANY H1B visas in the US. None. We have the most trained and educated workforce in the world. What are all of these zillion dollar “retraining programs” Republicans and Democrats love so much? If we do not for some reason why do we pay a zillion dollars in tax money for all of these universities, community colleges, student loan programs etc which must be failing somehow and thus the money to them needs to be cut off as it is producing nothing. Also employers used to spend money investing in training for employees and now they don’t because they can just fire them and get someone new. That is how they “save” money but keep on charging high prices for shit services or goods. Which is it? It can’t be both. One or the other and business and import companies of slave labor need to make up their minds. Audit the hell out of them as it will be easy to figure out what they are up to and it is not good.

    What a shame. Too bad the city couldn’t have postponed it for a few days. My local Christmas Tree lighting is going to take place on Saturday. The rain should be gone by then. At least I hope so.

    Rain, extra security ruin Rockefeller Christmas Tree Lighting

    • lateblum says:

      From the article,

      “I didn’t expect the rain, the cold, unorganized security and people stumbling over me,” explained Tim Hopper, a 33-year-old health care worker from Brooklyn. “My umbrella was stolen — thanks, NYPD. I understand the extra security measures because terrorism, but I’m blaming Trump to feel better. At least I saw Al Roker in person speaking about the rain.”

      And there you have it folks. “I’m blaming Trump” (for the rain and extra security and the attack in Ohio by some man who came in during Obama’s presidency) just so I can “feel better” (about my “rotten” situation of getting wet in the rain instead of using the brain God gave me and stay home out of the rain and wind and cold). They are JPN (just plain nuts) and are absolutely ruled by what feels good to them – regardless of how stupid, or unhealthy or costly it may be.
