Seems Joy Reid and Alex Wagner brought a whole deck of race-cards. From the Daily Caller. Seems the race-baiters have few limits on their claims. Allowing people in from countries where a deadly and contagious pathogen is running rampant and uncontrolled is somehow wise policy. Otherwise, you be racisssssss!
As the ebola outbreak continues to spin out of control in western Africa and ramps up here in the United States, remember these comments from these people. They, along with the race-baiting Attorney General, the sycophantic and incompetent Director of the CDC, and the arrogant and feckless President, are fanning the flames.
Had this disease emanated from Finland, there would have been a travel ban months ago. But then, the Finns don’t have nincompoops like these two nitwits screaming into microphones how not allowing carriers of disease into the United States is racist. Most Finns are the wrong color to have microphones for that purpose.
A pox on both your houses. Perhaps sooner than you thought.
Our dear friend Boston Maggie damn near made me spit coffee this morning with her outrage at the ignorance of the contestants. She is all about the Revolutionary War, having lived most of her life amidst the historical geography of Boston. So when she gets the category of “American Revolutionaries” she is guaranteed to be all but crawling through the television screen. Of course, she calls it “Jeppidy”, but she excels at it. No surprise, with her quick wit and impressive intellect. Mixed with the educational boot camp of Catholic school.
And she is, of course, correct. Jeppidy contestants are sposta be smaaaahht. Smart enough to know George Washington wasn’t in the Navy, for cryin’ out loud.
But what happens when the category is “Civil War”? Or “Mayberry”? “Who is…. Mayor Pike”?
This is Johnny Gilbert speaking….
Oh good Lordy. From our laugh-till-you-cry funny friends at The Duffel Blog.
BEIJING, China — According to Chinese news agencies, the head of a People’s Liberation Army unit of military hackers is planning to file a formal complaint today with the United States Department of Defense after a number of what were called “disturbing” conversations with “American military perverts.”
Senior Colonel Bo Wang of the People’s Glorious Facebook Battalion is one of thousands of Chinese military personnel who spend all-day attempting to infiltrate the social media profiles of US military and intelligence personnel with fake accounts.
Once a target is identified, the hacker will create a false profile, usually of an attractive member of the opposite sex, and ‘friend’ the target. Over time, a successful hacker can friend almost an entire unit and learn valuable information about military or intelligence plans.
The problem, as Colonel Wang soon found out, is that the majority of his targets are young American servicemen, most of whom only agree to friend requests because they expect sexual favors at some point.
The rest is definitely not safe for work. Or most anything else. But jee-ZUS is it funny!
Huh. I could see this being protocol for an op-check AFTER the transplant…. The Smoking Gun gives us the details.
A female nurse “initiated unsolicited sexual relations, including intercourse” with a hospitalized Illinois man who was awaiting a heart transplant, according to a lawsuit filed Monday
Cantone, whose wife Laura is co-plaintiff in the lawsuit, charges that Shaper “had a propensity to initiate unauthorized physical contact with patients.” The nurse, he added, “had attempted and/or succeeded” in initiating similar contact with other patients in her care.
One has to wonder if this is covered by Obamacare. And where the hell was she when I had to go in for my kidney stone?
I cannot say it surprises me that wife Laura is a co-plaintiff. Sorta gives a new meaning to “bedside manner”, though. I wonder if the VA is hiring?
I consider Laura Linney to be one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. And she is incredibly talented as an actress, giving magnificent performances in Mystic River, Breach, and The Truman Show, and a great many other films. She had also been the star of HBO’s The Big C, but I consider her most impressive performance to be as Erin Bruner, an agnostic lawyer who takes on the wrongful death case of a Catholic Priest, in the The Exorcism of Emily Rose, a haunting 2005 film based on a true story.
Laura Linney also became a new mother at 49 this past January, and managed to do so in private, which is a refreshing change from the usual publicly-examined private lives of publicity-seeking celebrities. She also is a great example in an industry that positively worships youth above almost all else, that a woman in her late-40s and early-50s (she is a few months older than I) can be as stunningly beautiful and attractive as any ingenue 20-year-old.
Apparently, Nancy Pelosi forgot that the Dems controlled both houses of Congress for four years, and the White House along with it for two of them. And when Pennsylvania Republican Tom Marino pointed that out in regards to the border crisis, Pelosi actually walked across the aisle to scold him.
A Pelosi staffer told us Nancy accepted Marino’s apology. But Marino’s people said no such apology was given, and Marino had this to say via “twiddah”:
“Rep. Pelosi called me an ‘insignificant person’ on the Floor of the House. I’ll ponder that for a while driving to Williamsport tonight. Of course I’ll be driving myself, with no staff or security. And I’m just a country lawyer who worked in a bakery until he was 30,” he said in three separate tweets.
Of course, Minority Leader Pelosi seems to be mostly polystyrene these days. So maybe going all “1856” on her wouldn’t do much. Also, Brooks was a Democrat like Pelosi, the party of slavery and segregation, Dixiecrats and discrimination. So maybe Pelosi would be Brooks and Marino would be Sumner.
