Kvetch a bit! Share--right here!
157 on the nose today, sorta stuck, but still doing well. They opened the bridge near my house yesterday, so the Kitten and I drove (expeditiously) into town and had a celebratory dinner last night. Had a little too much to eat.
I love Chicago. I lived there -- which is actually "here" as I write this, having been here for the last three days -- more than 20 years ago, and cherish any opportunity to come back. And Chicago is especially nice in the summer. A friend of mine said years ago that no city in America gets more out of summer than Chicago, and that is surely true.
Until today, however, I had never ridden in a boat on the river, gazing up at the great buildings of the Chicago Loop. I recommend it. Herewith, some pictures from the afternoon's doggle of boon.

Can you believe this? Obama's White House coordinated with the media, and specifically with Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz's (aka Jon Stewart) The Daily Show. Truly unbelievable! Unbelievable if you're like nine and have the IQ of a cicada.
Tell me, what is the chief asset of the left? What characterizes them best and what do they themselves value the most? It's organization. The left has always known their views are not widely shared by the middle-class, the masses, the bourgeoisie, the proletariat (whatever term one may apply). Therefore their focus has always been on organizing, to multiply their power by controlling KEY positions in business, arts and entertainment, news outlets, academia etc.
Now you may call this a conspiracy theory, but the idea that the liberal media WOULD NOT coordinate with the White House and other political entities that share their world view is to me ludicrous. It would go against their very nature. I am POSITIVE there is highly organized coordination between all the aforementioned groups and probably your damn dog-groomer (if she or he is a tapped in leftist). Technology over the past couple of decades has made their message even more monolithic (and a helluva lot easier to disseminate).
Adam Smith said that competitors rarely talk, but if they do it'll take them less than 10 minutes before they hatch a conspiracy against the markets. Likewise leftists have been conspiring against our Constitution and our freedom since the days of Emma Goldman and John Reed (and probably since Moses, but I can't prove that). So Politico's grand revelation is not so grand, in fact I'm quite sure they've known about all this for years because they're part of the conspiracy. Jon Stewart manipulates young idiots and Politico manipulates older idiots...and so it goes.

|Rick Perry--Trump Foil?|
1. Someone in the field, and it looks like Rick Perry, will almost certainly figure out that their chances at the nomination require some kind of "long ball", and that long ball will be taking on Trump. Trump has a long record of lefty statements, and that record will have been mined for nuggets he will have to defend. A Trump foil breaking out of the pack would be a good thing.
2. The field should relentlessly point to four corporate bankruptcy proceedings in The Donald's past. Four. Count 'em. Four times where creditors were screwed in order to ensure The Donald's empire thrived. Crony Capitalism at its best.
3. The field should take Donald's actual policy statements on immigration--to the extent that they exist-- and identify the stunning fact that there is little or nothing unique in them. The only thing unique in Trump's immigration stance is the venom and vitriol he brings to the discussion--which while potentially initially satisfying the the nativist crowd, is ultimately self-destructive.
4. The field must remind Republican voters that Trump's candidacy is relentlessly flogged by a mainstream media who uses it to deflect from Hillary's potentially criminal behavior and her cratering numbers.
5. Further to #2...relentlessly reinforce the degree to which Trump is a classic crony capitalist--from his promiscuous political donations tied directly to corporate desires, to his support of the reckless Supreme Court's Kelo decision, the man stands for things his supporters simply either don't know or don't want to hear.
That's a start. Any more suggestions.

In the first Jurassic Park Jeff Goldblum asks the Zoo Dude what precautions they've taken to prevent these 47 ton critters from escaping resulting in some Triceratops marching down Rodeo Drive scaring hell out of Paris Hilton (although I'd say she's well familiar with the three horns at once concept). Zoo Dude says that hey man, it's all good, we made them all females, they ain't going nowhere. Goldblum's response is that you guys are all idiots, you have no idea what you're fuqing with and that NATURE WILLS OUT! No matter what you do nature will find a way to win and all this biological manipulation BS will end up costing you big time and biting you in the ass..literally. That piece of logic is not only true with dinosaur movies but true with people as well.
There are rumblings in Europe. Those leftist dweebs currently led by the halfwitted, half-baked, half-assed little Marxist prick Martin Schultz are about to suffer the wrath of the people. Unless I miss my guess Greece will explode very soon, and this could well touch off a simmering powder keg of violence that will wreck the leftist pipe dream of a united Europe. Hell it's a joke anyway. The Germans run the show. You didn't see the Italians or Spanish negotiating debt relief with Athens did you? This could get ugly fast, stay tuned.
Well nobody can say we didn't try. It's well known that Obama and most especially his main political squeeze Valerie Jarrett (is something else going on there?) can't stand the Clintons, and now they're putting the squeeze on. I think they're just having a little fun. They got her ass anytime they want it. She's so stupid. Why would she expose herself time after time? Private server, Benghazi, YouTube videos, Clinton Foundation; lies, lies and more lies. Lies that Obama had to know about and could use at anytime. Did she think she had friends in the White House? Is she nuts?
This stuff wouldn't have happened 10 years ago. Bill is as sharp as they come but he's old now. I think he's more concerned with the good life and is really not able for the brutal knockdown, drag-out of a political campaign. I think Hillary's cadre of leftist lesbians and man-haters have filled her head full of pipe dreams. I think Bill loves those $750k speaking fees because he'd probably do it for expenses, he loves the attention. I think Hillary has used his old network and they've all gotten together in the Clinton echo chamber and convinced themselves that she's a good candidate and that she can win. But the fact is she's teeing off on the Seniors Tour with a dodgy knee and a tore rotator cuff. She ain't winning The Masters because in the best of circumstance she never could, and certainly not with her present baggage. The only question now is who's gonna step up because Hillary is toast.
Politicians are just like the rest of us, they have their way of thinking and sometimes it's hard to process something that doesn't fit. Trump doesn't fit. I keep saying he's not a politician and the voters are not holding him to the same rules and standards as politicians. He can say damn near anything he likes, and does, and what would ruin a Jeb Bush only endears him to the folks. They don't have to agree with him, that's not it. It's that he's genuine, or at least is perceived as such. Voters are tired of politicians, tired of their manipulations and lying. Trump is the guy telling the truth and he can say insulting stuff to a war hero and the professionals can play their games and try to say he insulted ALL veterans and guess what? The folks blame the politicians because they're just manipulating the issue AS THEY ALWAYS DO. It ends up hurting them for being the assholes that they are! Trump comes out smelling like a rose. No matter how many times Trump "misspeaks", no matter how many times he screws up, it don't mean nothing. He's saying what the people want to hear, and they believe him when he says it.
Now the establishment (CW types) want to boycott the first debate if Trump is allowed to participate. Can you imagine a more infantile response to a candidate? Can you imagine a bigger insult to a large part of the Republican base that this? I though we had serious people running the show. I guess not. Jesus H. Christ, talk about crybabies!
That's all I got, now hit the road, your presence here is no longer appropriate.
"But the reluctance to look closely doesn’t change the truth of what there is to see. Those were dead human beings on Richard Selzer’s street 40 years ago, and these are dead human beings being discussed on video today: Human beings that the nice, idealistic medical personnel at Planned Parenthood have spent their careers crushing, evacuating, and carving up for parts."

Share your angst with the sympathetic minds of the Conservative Wahoo.
My recent travels issued a slight setback to my dieting...weighed in at 157 today, which means nine pounds to go.

But somebody likes it, including me. Check out these numbers, the Carlos Slim owned NY Times must be beside themselves. Do you have any clue why Trump is doing well? Well Here's the Hammeratic theory on the subject. He's got balls. He doesn't back down at the first sign of trouble. He ain't no media bitch. Plus he's putting front and center the most important issue for MIDDLE CLASS AMERICA of our lifetime...IMMIGRATION!
People are just sick of the bullshit. They're sick to death of weakness. They're sick of politicians that run as this and govern as that. No way Trump will win, but if any politician on either side tries to discredit him I predict they will pay a heavy price. Rick Perry is about to find that out.
They're so stupid. Treat Trump as Clinton treated Perot...adopt his policies. Come out right now and declare that the days of open borders are over. No more 1100 peons a day walking across our border. No more drug cartels setting up pot fields in our national forests. No more anchor babies and maternity tourism. NO MORE! We're tired of it. WE'VE HAD ENOUGH!
We will militarize the border if that's what it takes. We will will build a fence and the Mexicans will help pay for it, or wish they had. Furthermore LEGAL immigration is now on hold, no more until we can sort out those already here. No more hiring of illegals punishable by jail time. Tourists, students etc. will be required to check in often with immigration otherwise jail time and deportation.
We have one last chance, get a handle on this shit or look for another country because this one won't be worth living in. Trump is speaking to this frustration, he's being strong and proactive, and we "CRAZIES" love it!
