More funny stuff…
Welcome to the Friday Night Movie and what I hope will be a spectacular weekend for everyone. It has been an exciting week and the time has come for some relaxation. This is how it is done here. A cinematic diversion begins that process. Tonight I have decided that Comedy will be the medicine of choice.
I have never really been much of a Rob Schneider fan. In his early years he reminded me of an Elf with a Mullet. In this movie we have an older Rob Schneider and he works his character much better. I totally found this movie by drifting the Tube. I subjected it to the Ten Minute Test. I was sold when Dan Haggarty told Rob Schneider that he was going to get butt raped and if they were in Prison that he would butt rape him personally. Apparently fear of getting butt raped in Prison is the central theme that drives the plot of this movie. I must say that as I was headed to Prison I was concerned about the whole butt rape scenario myself. Therefore within the Ten Minute Test the main character of this movie developed the empathy within me that is required in order for me to want to watch the rest of this movie. I can’t believe I’m going to watch a Rob Schneider movie. I think it is the anticipation of seeing him deal with the butt rape scenario that is responsible for our featured presentation this evening. It is worth noting that this publication uses the term “Butt Rape” more than any other publication in the entire history of this website.
So here we go with a funny Prison Movie…
In honor of the Anniversary of the transition Prince made from this life into the next one year ago today, I give to you a very rare bit of history. It was July 1st, 1986. Because of his deep spiritual ties with the rural American Frontier, Prince chose the Holiday Inn in Sheridan, Wyoming to be the location for the global premier party for his box office busting cinematic masterpiece, Under the Cherry Moon which was shown at the nearby Centennial Twin Theater. MTV was on hand to host the event. The American Heartland was on fire as Prince and The Revolution descended on the Holiday Inn. It was an incredible night worth remembering.
The brief little interview with “The Original Prince” is both informative and entertaining. Music opens with a love ballad Prince wrote to acknowledge RD and myself. The 80s were pure magic and Prince helped make it that way.
Seriously. Someone explain the point of this tweet.
How many yachts do billionaires need? How many cars do they need? Give us a break. You can't have it all.
— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) April 21, 2017
Does he believe that the production of yachts somehow mean his followers get less meat and potatoes? Is he just angry that some people are wealthy? Does he think that undermining the yachting industry would improve the economy? Is he just a senile crank?
Apparently the guy who clocked a free speech and Trump supporter in the head with a bike lock at Berkley is……a college professor!
Eric Clanton teaches philosophy at Diablo Valley College. The college’s facebook page is hysterical. The most recent post:
I was inquiring about the teaching position in your Philosophy department you’ll ~hopefully~ have come open very soon, and I would like to declare my interest in filling that position. I don’t have any teaching experience pre se, but seeing that your philosophy professors don’t actually practice ‘deep thought’ and ‘open mindedness’, I don’t see how that’s a problem. Also, I’ve been working for United Airlines for the past 8 years… So I believe I’d be a perfect fit for your institution.
I wonder what, if any, action the college will take.
Federal prosecutors are weighing whether to bring criminal charges against members of the WikiLeaks organization, taking a second look at a 2010 leak of diplomatic cables and military documents and investigating whether the group bears criminal responsibility for the more recent revelation of sensitive CIA cyber-tools, according to people familiar with the case.
The Justice Department under President Barack Obama decided not to charge WikiLeaks for revealing some of the government’s most sensitive secrets — concluding that doing so would be akin to prosecuting a news organization for publishing classified information. Justice Department leadership under President Trump, though, has indicated to prosecutors that it is open to taking another look at the case, which the Obama administration did not formally close.
Down the memory hole to October 10, 2016…

A controversial coffee shop is taking Washington by storm, not for the quality of their beverages, but for the staff’s dress code. Bikini Beans Espresso, which also operates in Arizona, has baristas dressed in bikinis, underwear, or even just a conveniently placed sticker while they make your drink and it has been a huge success.
All of the usual ugly, feminist hypocrites are crying about the exploitation of beautiful women who are taking advantage of their natural endowments to make more than any other baristas out there.
These same ragged out hags who believe the burka is a celebration of cultural diversity, and the vagina hat & abortion are valid expressions of the sacred femyn, are bitching about hot girls selling coffee.
“It became too difficult financially to be in school and not working,” says Kaylor, who dropped out of Lincoln Christian University, in Illinois, after one semester because of a money crunch. “And without schooling, you can’t get a job that you can survive on, so I had to move back home,” he said.
It’s a scenario that has become far too common, according to a new census report out Wednesday that reveals staggering statistics on millennials and their journey to independence.
For one, the report shows young men like Kaylor, who makes less than $22,000, have fallen by the wayside when it comes to income.
“In 1975, only 25 percent of men aged 25 to 34 had incomes of less than $30,000 per year. By 2016, that share rose to 41 percent of young men,” according to the report.
It used to be so much easier, right?
April 20th, 1999. I remember this so vividly. Mainly because my oldest daughter had just been born a few months prior and I remember thinking, “I wonder how her high school experience will differ because of this.”
I sit here today — as she is finishing out her senior year in high school– thinking, “God, please don’t some sick or damaged kid think the ‘anniversary’ of Columbine would a good day to do something horrific.”
Fortunately, the Resource Officer (cop) assigned to my daughter’s High School on-campus is also on the department’s SWAT team (although not called that) and is the #1 sniper in the state.
I know that most people will see this as some sort of act of deterrence directed toward the United States but I don’t think so.
Fat Kim is going down.
President Donald Trump is ramping up his tougher “America First” trade policy with plans to revive a decades-old, rarely used law to explore imposing new barriers on steel imports, the White House said on Wednesday night.
Mr. Trump plans a signing event at noon Thursday to mark a special investigation under the 1962 Trade Expansion Act, which allows emergency trade sanctions on “national security” grounds, according to an administration statement.
The statement didn’t elaborate on the specific nature of the investigation, but people familiar with the matter said it would focus on steel imports, and that representatives of the steel industry would attend the ceremony. Another person familiar with the planned announcement said it could include other products deemed “important to defense.”
The U.S. government hasn’t used the law to impose penalties since the creation of the World Trade Organization in 1995, which discourages such unilateral sanctions. The law was most famously used by President Richard Nixon in 1971 to impose an across-the-board 10% import surcharge to contain the U.S. trade deficit at the time.
This will result in net fewer jobs in America and a direct transfer of wealth from the majority of the American people to the government and favored industry.
How does Trump make the call? Economist Daniel Griswold explains.
A bad trade deal allows U.S. manufacturing companies to lower their production costs by importing capital machinery, raw materials and intermediate inputs such as steel at global prices. A good trade deal protects the domestic U.S. steel industry and its 150,000 workers by raising the costs of production for steel-using manufacturing companies that employ 6.5 million U.S. workers.
A bad trade deal lowers or eliminates tariffs on the imported food, clothing and shoes that make up a disproportionately larger share of the family budgets of working class Americans and the 45 million Americans living below the poverty line, thus allowing their real wages and standard of living to rise.
A good deal protects the few hundred thousand remaining manufacturing jobs in the U.S. textile, apparel and footwear industries by maintaining a regressive tax of duties on food, clothing and footwear that imposes an effective tariff on the poorest 10% of Americans that is 5 times higher than the effective tariff on goods purchased by the richest 10%.
Tyranny 101: Disarm the citizenry while arming thugs.
The socialist leader of Venezuela announced in a speech to regime loyalists his plan to arm hundreds of thousands of supporters after a years-long campaign to confiscate civilian-owned guns.
“A gun for every militiaman!” Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro said to uniformed militia members outside the presidential palace, Fox News reported on Tuesday. The Bolivarian militias, created by Maduro’s predecessor Hugo Chavez, already number in the hundreds of thousands and are being used to supplement the regime’s armed forces. Maduro is boosting the number of armed supporters in hopes of keeping control over the country from what he labels “imperialist aggression.”
The arming of Maduro’s supporters comes five years after Venezuela’s socialist regime outlawed the commercial sale and civilian ownership of firearms. Only the military, police, and groups like security companies can buy guns and only directly from one state-run arms company under the law passed in 2012, according to the BBC. The country recently doubled down on its gun ban through a combination of gun buybacks and confiscations in the summer of 2016.
“We are going to bring disarmament and peace,” Interior Minister Nestor Reverol told Reuters during one confiscation event.
I have an old friend who served in the Marine Corps, then went on to become a Sr. Agent with ICE. He posted this video, celebrating his pride in & support of the new DHS Secretary.
He & I spoke in February, 2010 about how his job was going. He said they hadn’t done anything because his team (raids businesses than employ illegals in San Diego) was given a stand down order, straight from the top. He’s glad to be back working, protecting our country, again.
This cannot be said enough. A minute and a half you should watch. Cato Institute Senior Fellow Johan Norberg explains how trade protectionism has already failed time and time again.
This is going to get complicated really fast so try to keep up.
Here is a story about a woman who has a 7 year old daughter. The daughter is genetically a girl. She has all the girl parts down there. She is a girl in every way and she feels like a girl. She knows she is a girl and wants to be referred to as a girl.
The thing is she likes boy-stuff. Her tastes lean toward snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails rather than sugar and spice and everything nice. She is a tomboy.
We all knew tomboys when we grew up. They were common. Remember Scout Finch (above) from To Kill a Mockingbird? Yep, Scout was a standard, garden variety tomboy and we never gave it a second thought.
Of course this is 2017 so this cannot stand. This little girl gets a lot of questions as to whether or not she is a transgendered boy. “Do you want to be referred to as a boy?”
Her mother dutifully responds to these queries with, “no, she is a girl she is just a tomboy”.
Many people don’t seem to want to accept that, however. School administrators get involved. “Clearly this little boy is gender confused. He was born a genetic girl but is really a boy.”
“No”, mom says, “she is a girl”. People can’t accept that. “Is it healthy for this transgendered boy to believe he is a girl?” “Are his parents doing him a disservice?” “Is he mentally ill to believe he is a girl?”
Evidently, in some circles in modern America, gender acceptance doesn’t extend to simple, everyday tomboys.

The Reagan and the Vinson were mentioned as leading the armada. This causes some confusion.
The US Navy has told Business Insider that the forward-based Reagan will be tied up for months with refittings and training exercises. In a perplexing mix-up, the USS Carl Vinson, which the US Navy said on April 8 would head to North Korea, was photographed 3,500 miles away in Indonesia on April 15.
South Korea’s conservative candidate for its May presidential election, Hong Joon-pyo, told The Wall Street Journal of the carrier mix-up: “What Mr. Trump said was very important for the national security of South Korea. If that was a lie, then during Trump’s term, South Korea will not trust whatever Trump says.”
On both the North Korean and US sides of the conflict, all talk of military action can likely be dismissed as bluster.
UPDATE: One down, one to go: NBC declares “not terrorism”
Forget the “Allah Akbar” comment. Do you want to know what is MORE relevant to the story? This:
The shooting happened Tuesday morning near a Catholic Charities building. Ashlee Wolf of Catholic Charities told the Fresno Bee newspaper that the charity doesn’t believe the shooter was tied to Catholic Charities.
The guys shoots someone at a bus stop near a Catholic Charity, so, of course it has something to do with those damn Catholics.
Dyer said at a news conference Muhammad has made posts against white people and the government on his Facebook page, and that all the people he shot were white men.
He also shouted “Allahu Akbar” as police tackled him to the ground, according to Dyer.
But then again, he went by “Black Jesus” so probably some form of Christian Hate.
He had a fatal attraction to Chicken McNuggets.
There is an astounding number of Chicken McNugget related 911 calls but this may be go down as most infamous.
Federal agents ignored President Trump’s pledge to protect from deportation undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children by sending a young man back to his native Mexico, the first such documented case, a USA TODAY examination of the new administration’s immigration policies shows.
After spending an evening with his girlfriend in Calexico, Calif., on Feb. 17, Juan Manuel Montes, 23, who has lived in the U.S. since age 9, grabbed a bite and was waiting for a ride when a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer approached and started asking questions.
Montes was twice granted deportation protections under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program created by President Barack Obama and left intact by President Trump.
Montes had left his wallet in a friend’s car, so he couldn’t produce his ID or proof of his DACA status and was told by agents he couldn’t retrieve them. Within three hours, he was back in Mexico, becoming the first undocumented immigrant with active DACA status deported by the Trump administration’s stepped-up deportation policy.
Good? Bad? Just the way it has to be?
UPDATE: Evidently fake news. See comments.
There are some news stories today that nobody cold have imagined Six Months ago…
I feel a case of whiplash coming on.
Fox News is preparing to cut ties with its biggest star, Bill O’Reilly, according to people close to the situation.
A final decision on Mr. O’Reilly’s fate could come as early as the next several days, the people said. Mr. O’Reilly, host of “The O’Reilly Factor,” has been ensnared in a sexual-harassment scandal related to previously undisclosed settlements he and Fox News paid to women who worked on or appeared on his program.
