Unexpectedly

Remember during Obungler’s reign how often the Fake News Media used the word “unexpected” or “unexpectedly”? Every time there was bad economic news it was always “unexpected”. “Unexpectedly the GDP came in lower than economists thought.” For eight years we had to put up with this crap as the Fake News Media tried to tell us that we were in a recovery. Unexpectedly the economy refused to conform to what they wanted. We had “recovery summers” that never happened. We had “green shoots” that were really just weeds. And of course we had the male bovine excrement that was the unemployment numbers. We’re still getting that. How can you not count people who have given up looking for work as unemployed? That’s what our gummint does.

The Fake News Media is still using the word “unexpected” but now it is to explain good economic news. Stock market up over 5000 points since Trump was elected? Unexpected. Remember Paul Krugman said on election night when asked when the market would recover he said that the best case estimate was never. 5000 points Paulie! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I read a column by him on Monday where he talked about Republicans never admitting they were wrong or that they never made mistakes. He could have written it about Obumbler and himself.

Every time there was a bad storm during the Oblunder reign the Fake News Media would use that as an excuse for low GDP numbers. During the third quarter we had two bad hurricanes hit the mainland and one hit Puerto Rico and GDP was up 3.0%. It was the second consecutive quarter of GDP growth of 3.0%. Unexpectedly.

Isn’t it amazing what can happen when you lift the chains of socialism (excessive gummint regulations) from an economy and let capitalism work? If the Republicans in Congress would repeal Obummercare the economy would really take off. Obummercare is a jobs killer. How do I know? Krugman wrote that it creates jobs. All I really need to know about Krugman was he was an economist for Enron when it tanked.

And now, unexpectedly, consumer confidence is the highest it’s been in 17 years.

U.S. consumer confidence rose more than expected in October to the highest in almost 17 years as Americans grew more confident about the economy and job market, according to figures Tuesday from the New York-based Conference Board.

There’s that word again.

Jumps in the Conference Board’s measures of the present situation and expectations signal Americans are becoming more upbeat about the economy and employment as the labor market improves and stock prices climb to records. Improvement in household confidence helps underpin their spending, the biggest part of the economy.

The results are consistent with other reports that showed economic activity and confidence are bouncing back, in part a sign that the hit from the recent hurricanes is dissipating. The University of Michigan’s consumer sentiment index climbed in October to the strongest since the start of 2004, while the Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index is near the highest level of the expansion.

The share of respondents who say jobs are plentiful rose to 36.3 percent, the most since June 2001, while people reporting good business conditions increased to 34.5 percent, matching the highest since 2001.

Look what Trump has done in less than a year. If it weren’t for the Fake News Media pounding on him 24 hours a day 7 days a week he would have great approval numbers. Of course, the polls the Fake News Media are citing about his low approval numbers are the same polls that said Thunder Rodent Thighs was gonna win the election. We sure dodged a bullet there.

Trump is making America great again.

Unexpectedly.

Odds And Ends

So much silly stuff going on but none of it worth a full bore rant.

NFL. Bob McNair, the owner of the Houston Texans really upset the kneegroes when he said, “We can’t have the inmates running the prison.” He was speaking metaphorically, but since most of the kneegroes are stupid they thought he was speaking for real and it hit close to home since half of them either have been in prison or belong in prison. All but six of the Houston players knelt for the anthem yesterday. Meanwhile, the NFL continues to lose viewership and advertisers. There is talk of Jerry Jones staging a coup and forcing Goodell out since he hasn’t a clue on how to handle the Kneegro Rebellion. He could have nipped this in the bud with Krapperdick last year but didn’t have the balls. Now it’s really getting bad as both Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are getting involved in this bullshit. They will demand shakedown money as they always do. This will not end well for the NFL.


Sent to me by many readers.

Dirty Old Man. Didja hear the latest about George H. W. Bush? Yeah, the old man. He’s 93 and in a wheelchair and some women are accusing him of sexual harassment. It seems he makes a joke and asks if they know his favorite magician. “It’s David Cop a Feel.” He then pats their asses or grabs them on the ass. What do you expect after hanging out with BJ Clinton after all of these years? The Clintons corrupt everything they touch. The old man even voted for Thunder Rodent Thighs.

Speaking of all of the sexual harassment revelations, the Fake News Media even dug up Anita Hill so she could repeat her accusations of Clarence Thomas. All he allegedly did was talk dirty. You notice no one is even mentioning BJ Clinton? All he did was rape and assault women. He was every bit as bad as Harvey Weinstein.

Russian collusion. Mueller finally got someone. Two people who had some dealings with Russia before Trump even starting running. This is as bad as the Valerie Plame witch hunt where the libs were trying to get Dick Cheney when all along it was Richard Armitage who worked for Colin Powell. All they got was a perjury charge against Scooter Libby. Meanwhile, the Clintons continue to skate along. They commit their crimes right out in the open and no one does a damn thing about it. Crooked Cankles is up to her neck with the Uranium One deal and the Fusion GPS deal as is Mueller who is running the Trump collusion investigation. What is wrong with the Republicans for not demanding a special prosecutor on that? The Goodell cartoon applies to those ballless wonders as well. BJ and the PIAP both belong in prison. They are both guilty of treason going back to BJ’s years in the White House when he allowed China to buy missile guidance technology in return for laundered campaign contributions.

George Washington. It seems George Washington is now persona non grata because he owned slaves. When are we gonna quit pandering to the 13% of the population of this country responsible for most of our social problems? When are these booger eatin’ moh-rons gonna get over sumpin’ that happened over 150 years ago? Two ex-slaves virtually ran the Roman Empire during the rein of the Emperor Claudius yet here we have people crying about Slavery® when they haven’t been slaves, their parents haven’t been slaves and their grandparents haven’t been slaves. It’s really getting old. Every ethnic group on this planet has been slaves at one time or another and has gotten over it except one group. And that is Africans in America. What a bunch of whiners.

Leaders at the church that George Washington attended decided that a plaque honoring the first president of the United States must be removed.

Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia will take down a memorial marking the pew where Washington sat with his family, saying it is not acceptable to all worshipers.

“The plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome,” leaders said, a reference to the fact that Washington was a slaveholder.

“Some visitors and guests who worship with us choose not to return because they receive an unintended message from the prominent presence of the plaques.”

Aw. Too fucking bad. If you look at the clergy running the church you can understand why they made this decision. Yep! Liberal women.

That’s all for tonight.

Here’s Spirit. The guy singing backup is Jay Ferguson who left the band along with the bass player Mark Andes to form Jo Jo Gunne. He then went on to a solo career. He now composes music for TV shows most notably NCIS: Los Angeles.

AOTW 10-27-2017

What can I say. Way too many assholes! Debbie Whatshername Slutz sez she knew nuttin’ about any Russian dossier on Trump. She I can believe since she doesn’t know much of anything anyway.

Thunder Rodent Thighs has fallen back on that old Clinton canard that it’s “old news”
.

Andre Mitchell said that she covered it and there was nothing there. I think she was talking about her brain.

Keith Ellison and Tom Perez, the current leaders of the DNC say they know nothing since they weren’t in charge back then. Tom Perez further displayed his ignorance by saying the Electoral College isn’t in the Constitution. Maybe he was referring to the Mexican constitution.

Donna Brazile is silent.

Slapsy Maxey Waters said that she was gonna “take out Trump”. Can you imagine the outrage if a Republican had said that about Obungler? But that’s OK. She’s a protected species being an African Dimocrat. Going after her would be rayciss! She’s still ranting and raving about impeachment.

The collusion case between Crooked Cankles and the Russians continues to grow and do you know who is at the heart of it besides her rottenness? Mueller and Comey. I’m not talking about the Trump dossier, I’m talking about Uranium One. Yeah the guy who is investigating Trump for imaginary collusion with the Russians and the man who let Felonia von Painsuit (thanks Kurt Schlichter for that name) off the hook for mishandling classified information are right at the heart of the real Russian collusion story. Mueller needs to recuse himself from this bogus investigation into Trump’s collusion with Russia and the investigation needs to be stopped immediately. Instead we need a special counsel to investigate the real collusion story, Uranium One. Heads should roll and people should go to jail, foremost among them the Clintons. Mueller and Comey are involved in this as well. They both prolly belong in orange jumpsuits. That’s why I’m giving them the AOTW Award.

Joke Of The Day

Due to declining viewership, the NFL is cutting back in Thursday Night Football games. The NFL thinks that’s why viewership is declining: there are too many games on television. They do not want to face the obvious that the fans have been totally turned off by the kneegroes politicizing football. The NFL could solve the problem but the main office, and too many of the owners have turned into SJWs and that includes the owner of the Falcons, Arthur Blank. Hey Art, how’s the team doing since you locked arms with the players? You barely won in Detoilet and you haven’t won since. Coach Quinn has lost control of the team and it’s your fault. The team has one job and that is to play football. Let them worry about mythical police brutality against Africans and “community issues” on their own time. It’s long past time to put down the kneegro rebellion.

Anyway, due to the NFL’s death spiral franchises are now having to combine to continue to make money. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Green Bay Packers have merged and have become the Tampacs. Alas, they are only good for one period and they have no second string.

Short But Sweet Ronsday

Ron speaks.

Career professional victims such as Wilson, Jackson-Lee, Waters, Sharpton, and even Soetoro himself thrive on racism. They actually WANT to be offended, they LIVE to be outraged, they NEED righteous indignation. Without the pity factor, Wilson or Waters or ANY of ‘em could no more be elected than DingleBarry could have been without being outwardly black.

Racism, white supremacy, oppression – those are the spigots of their communal electoral cornucopia. Never mind that Soetoro and (Susan) Rice and Holder and (Hillary) Clinton told FOUR Gold Star families that their sons had died because of a YouTube video. That’s O.K. . . . ‘cause they’re black, and even though Hillary isn’t, she’s still a Democrat.

DingleBarry told cops, ALL cops, that they knew what they were in for when they joined police organizations, that they might one day be killed in the line of duty. He said it was “part of the job you signed up for.” And that’s O.K., because he’s not only black, but a Democrat as well. Trump said the same thing, only less brutally, and is excoriated for it.

NOBODY in D.C. – neither the Dems nor the GOPs – can permit The Donald to get anything done. If he fixes things . . . if he streamlines the tax codes, if he reduces drug flow into the country, if he straightens out the VA, no matter what . . . if Trump solves problems and corrects mistakes that professional politicians have been promising to fix for the last 3 presidencies, it makes them look like losers.

Pelosi is obviously in advancing senility. Waters is hysterical and delusional, who knows from what. Wilson is brainwashed and heavily into BLM mythology. They hate Trump more than they love their country. Their entire anti-Trump motivation is based on the fact that Hillary isn’t in the Oval Office where they think she should be, and her only because of that pesky 22nd Amendment keeping DingleBarry from being PotUS for Life.

Of course the fact that Trump is male AND white just sharpens the cutting edge of their frustration and anger over not getting their way. Even IF DJT gets a balanced budget, IF he gets tax simplication, IF he gets immigration reform, IF he finds a way to decapitate NorK without nuking Pyongyang . .. . even if he manages to fix health care, they’ll still call him a racist, an impostor, a dilettante, a hypocrite, a usurper.

Irony is, tho, that they can’t see they’re just like donkeys calling burros jackasses since all those terms apply equally well to themselves.

Ron unspeaks.

He shoots, he scores! And Trump is making the professional politicians look like the losers they are. Flake is retiring because he was gonna lose in the upcoming primary. He made the mistake of sucking up to McRINO and becoming his Mini-me. It’s amazing that McRINO’s ass is big enough to accommodate both Flake and Lindsey Graham kissing it at the same time. McRINO has allowed his hatred of Trump make him oppose anything that is good for the country. Of course McRINO’s position on illegal immigration is mass amnesty and then competing with Dimocrats for the votes of the immigrants. The guy is as senile as ex-Speaker Blinky. I would blame it on his brain cancer, but he has been spouting this bullshit for years. But since McRINO is really a Dimocrat most of the time his position makes perfect sense. Can’t someone rid us of this meddlesome senator? At least Flake and Corker will be gone. Dimocrats have to defend ten Senate seats in states that Trump won. Let’s see how many of those races the Stupid Party can screw up.

West Virginia – It’s time to retire Manchin.

Missouri – It’s time to retire the odious Claire McCaskell. I don’t care if someone like Todd Akin gets the nomination. Anyone would be better than McCaskell. The Dimocrats support their candidates no matter how crazy they are. That’s why they win. The Stupid Party virtue signaled on Akin and gave the seat to McCaskell. Booger eatin’ moh-rons.

The rest of you red states – Don’t elect a Dimocrat senator. Why would you vote for Trump and then elect someone who opposes him? WTF is wrong with you?

And, sadly, Kid Rock is not running for senator.

St. Crispin’s Day

I post this every year on my birthday. I started this back in 2004 when Flipper was running for prez which is why there are references to him in this post. Today I am 71 years old. Holy crap! I’m a frickin’ geezer! But I’m not as old as Jimbo. His boitday was nine days ago. I knew that Jon Anderson of Yes was born on this date (He’s two years older than I am) but I also found out that Glenn Tipton of Judas Priest was born on this date as well. So, I share a birthday with two rock stars that I admire. October 25 is my birthday. It is also St. Crispin’s Day which is a very important date in English history.

You’ve heard John Fonda Kerry drone on about his “band of brothers”. Do you know where that phrase came from? No, it wasn’t an HBO special. It came from Shakespeare’s Henry V. It was the speech that King Henry gave before the battle of Agincourt, on St. Crispin’s Day, October 25, 1415, where an outnumbered English army (It was 30,000 French against 6,000 Englishmen) kicked the crap out of the French. They were French after all. Some things never change. Anyway in the spirit of my Hamlet and Marc Antony updates here is the St. Crispin’s Day speech.

WESTMORELAND. O that we now had here But one ten thousand of those men in England That do no work to-day!

Holy shit! We are outnumbered! If we only had some of those bloody bastards who are sitting on their asses back in England!

KING. What’s he that wishes so?
My cousin Westmoreland?

Why do you want that cuz?

No, my fair cousin;
If we are mark’d to die, we are enow
To do our country loss;

Nope, cousin dude. If we’re destined to get our butts kicked there are enough of us.

and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.

But if we’re gonna win, think of what an upset it would be. They would talk about us for years. It would be like the Jets beating Baltimore in Super Bowl III.


God’s will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.

I don’t want any more men. We’re fighting the French after all.

By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,

Holy crap! I’m not doing this for money.


Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;

And I don’t care if the dudes with me are doing it for money.


It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires.

I don’t even care if my men wear my uniforms.


But if it be a sin to covet honour,
I am the most offending soul alive.

But if it’s a sin to want honor and glory than I am the biggest sinner on the planet.


No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England.

Nope! I don’t want any more men.


God’s peace! I would not lose so great an honour
As one man more methinks would share from me
For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!

Nope. If I had just one more man he would take honor away from me. I am the quarterback. Just like Namath I want to shine.


Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,

Tell the rest of the army,


That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart;

that if there is anyone who is a pussy, get the fuck out of here.

his passport shall be made,
And crowns for convoy put into his purse;

Give him three purple hearts. It will be his ticket home.


We would not die in that man’s company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.

We would not die in the company of a phony bastard such as he that would use scratches to get purple hearts and cut short his tour of duty by 8 months. Get the fuck out of my sight! You are not worthy to die with us.


This day is call’d the feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam’d,

When St. Crispin’s Day comes around every one who returns home will look at this day proudly.

And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say ‘To-morrow is Saint Crispian.’
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say ‘These wounds I had on Crispian’s day.’

The night before St. Crispin’s day he’ll roll up his sleeves and show the scars and tell him he got them on St. Crispin’s Day at Agincourt.

Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he’ll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day.

He may forget other stuff in old age, but not the Battle of Agincourt!

Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words-
Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester-

All of our names will be remembered.


Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb’red.

While knocking down some brewskis,

This story shall the good man teach his son;

The old veteran will teach his son.

And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,

And on this day from now until the end of the world,


But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;

our small but happy force, this band of brothers


For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,

Anyone who fights with me will be my brother. He won’t return to England and stab us all in the back by falsely accusing us of war crimes. (OK. I added that last part to make this more relevant to today.)


This day shall gentle his condition;

This day will make him a better person.


Make him a member of the gentry, even if he is a commoner.

If he’s lower class this will make him upper class. (And he won’t even have to marry for it.)


And gentlemen in England now-a-bed

And all those pussies back home in bed,


Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

will know that they were wusses because they didn’t have the balls to be with us.
Now lets go kill us some Frogs!
Before the Battle of Agincourt,
25 October 1415

And GOC
