    Public Shaming

    Yeah, it's not like I'm losing my sense of humor; just yesterday, RHR's link to Louder With Crowder Intersectionality Power Rankings had me rolling hard. It's that the jokes aren't funny. The only thing funny was John Oliver's comment that Jay Leno jokes don't age well. Really? If I got to chose between seeing the most highly acclaimed John Oliver episode of all time or Jay Leno work a hospital ward of terminally ill children, I'd chose Jay. Not only would I get more class, I'd still likely get more laughs out of Jay Leno. I seriously doubt John Oliver even at his best holds a candle to Jay Leno at his worst. edi: well now that I think on it, an election night John Oliver meltdown... might be worth seeing.

    AOC is an actress...Brains behind her inside....

    If God is kind, I will never have to learn to pronounce or spell that name. Even better is if I never recognize it or have to differentiate it from gibberish. Not to slam Indians with difficult names mind you, just this particular radical leftist cancerous one.
  3. They still can but the chances seem high that they are anxious to nominate somebody that triples down on freak show wedge issue identity politics. If they're lucky they cough up somebody who isn't creepy... like Creepy Joe for example. And I don't know that he'd win either.

    What do you make of this??

    https://www.mlive.com/news/flint/2014/04/michigan_football_star_espn_an.html Desmond Howard had to buy the rights of his iconic Heisman Trophy pose from the photographer who took it. (He'd just burned Ohio State on a punt return for a TD and did, in fact, go on to win the 1991 Heisman) What I'm saying is that in his case, the law states that image belongs to the photographer, not the subject.

    I use to be good at this stuff, I won a large pile of money in the Army then again in college. Now I'm a blindfolded monkey throwing at a dartboard. One of the years I won, I'd taken 13 Detroit-Mercy over 4 UCLA.
  6. No. The way to read that is the same as today, some a$$holes thought non-citizens in the country who can't vote should still be included in the census for congressional representation because it served their own best interest.

    Oh, no! Tucker went on a shockjock radio show ten years ago and said something funny. Horrors.

    In... but totally clueless. Teams are just names and ranking numbers to me, sadly. I can name maybe 3-4 Spartans and 3-4 Wolverines and not anybody from any other team. I just took a bunch of midwestern teams in upsets until it got too stupid that I couldn't justify their advancing anymore and mostly followed the numbers elsewhere.
  10. Ah ... the road not taken. The greatest tragedy of 2001 was that sh*tball GWB getting sworn into office, 9/11 doesn't come close. Punch in nose > Cancer
  11. They move in the neighborhood and you can't afford a new house. My grandfather got lucky although he sure as hell didn't think so at the time. The government needed his house to put in an on-ramp on the new expressway they were building, so he moved out of the Italian ghetto into the Detroit suburbs a few years before the riots crashed the housing prices.
  12. I came so... so close to missing it ... The "WOMAN [WHITE]" represenational photo is Rachel Dolezol version 1.0.

    Good idea, I bet she's even sexier on 'mute.'

    Good Primer/Summary of Brexit

    It's what happens when you put a 'remain' supporter in charge of Brexit that secretly wants to undermine/poison pill/sabotage it. What you do is, instead of re-inventing the wheel, get a copy of every trade, immigration, etc negotiation that Norway (or Switzerland) ever negotiated with the EU, edit out "Norway" and replace it with "Great Britain", and you're 95% of the way there. Next, tweak this, tweak this, tweak this, change that, and you're all set. Now it seems they're entering endlessly kicking the can down the road mode for ten years then eventually saying it's been ten years, let's re-vote'.
  15. Maybe if Hillary had spent a day or two in Wisconsin and Michigan, the Democrts wouldn't have these problems. If Trump and his unwashed supporters are the dumb ones, how come they're the only ones that know how to read a map?
