The Outrages Du jour

For some reason I’m having trouble trying to insert images with the IMG tag. They keep getting inserted amid the text. Methinks the trolls that inhabit my machine are just trying to piss me off. Just a couple things in the reply section. Of course, here’s a few chuckles as a palate cleanser:

Apparently the posting link has gone haywire. When I try to add media the whole folder pops up full size and won’t add. Hell with it. I should just quit.

    Shocker: No Punishment For 16 Social Justice Warriors West Point Cadets In Raised-Fist Photo….

    WELL,COLOR ME SURPRISED

    An internal inquiry “found that the cadets did not pre-plan or set out to make a political statement,” West Point’s superintendent, Lt. Gen. Robert Caslen Jr., said in a letter to the student body.

    But, he said, they showed “a lapse of awareness in how symbols and gestures can be misinterpreted and cause division” and they will get some instruction on that.

    Sidney Blumenthal Claims Inside Knowledge About FBI’s Clinton Email Investigation
    D.C. IS FULL OF SLIMY,BOTTOM-FEEDING VERMIN THAT CRAWL ON THEIR BELLIES.THIS FILTH IS ONE OF THE SMARMIEST
    Blumenthal, who is known as “Vicious Sid” because of his cutthroat political tactics, refused to call the FBI’s probe what it is — an investigation. He also dodged a question about whether he has been interviewed by the FBI.

    It is unclear how Blumenthal would have any inside knowledge about the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s server. Investigators are looking into whether classified information was mishandled. The server was found to have at least 22 “Top Secret” and dozens of “Secret” emails

    Obama tells grads: Successful people just got lucky

    President Obama addresses graduates at Howard University

    “Be confident in your heritage. Be confident in your blackness,” President Barack Obama told graduates and their families at Howard University’s 2016 commencement ceremony.

    Obama told the graduating class that success is based more on luck, not hard work, and those who achieve great things do so because the fates have shined brightly upon them.

    Successful people are “just lucky,” Obama said, Breitbart reported. “It wasn’t nothing you did.”
    QUOTH THE LUCKIEST MAN ON THE PLANET.GOT TO BE PRESIDENT WITHOUT DOING SQUAT.EVERYTHING WAS GIVEN TO HIM BECAUSE OF HIS TAN COLOR AND WHITE EDUCATION.

    “That’s a pet peeve of mine – people who have been successful and don’t realize they’ve been lucky,” he said. “That God may have blessed them; it wasn’t nothing you did. So don’t have an attitude.”

    The characterization was akin to his 2012 statement when he said those who achieved great success in business did so based on outside factors – that they “didn’t build that” business on their own, but rather on the back of government support.

    Clinton Son-In-Law’s Investment Fund Shut Down After 90% Loss

    Hillary Clinton’s son-in-law, the mediocre money manager Marc Mezvinsky, is shutting down a special Greece-focused investment fund that had lost nearly 90 percent of its value over the past two years.
    Mezvinsky’s financial trouble is unlikely to concern wife Chelsea, who has said she could never bring herself to care about money. That didn’t stop her from turning down a $600,000 annual salary at NBC News to do basically nothing except interview the Geico gecko from time to time. The couple lives in $10 million luxury condo in Manhattan’s trendy Flatiron District.

    Mezvinsky’s father, former congressman Edward Mezvinsky, served five years in prison for stealing money from his friends, family and associates through a series of crude scams.

    THIS TRUMP AD IS PRETTY POWERFUL

    Pro-Clinton Super-PAC Releases Ad Attacking Trump’s Comments on Women (VIDEO)

    This is the 2nd time an ad like this has been put out by pro-Hillary PACs.
    It doesn’t appear to be working on Trump

    IF THE ENABLING WHORE WANTS TO DO THE “WAR ON WOMEN” THING,I THINK TRUMP WOULD RELISH IT

    I find this hilarious! It seems even the despicable Harry Reid hates Grayson.

    Rep. Alan Grayson and Sen. Reid have words at Progressive Caucus meeting
    http://hotair.com/archives/2016/05/11/sen-reid-has-harsh-words-for-alan-grayson/

    “The Hill reports Grayson turned on Sen. Reid saying, “Shame on you. It’s not true.” Reid, never one to back down from a fight, replied, “It is true and I want you to lose.”

    Rep. Ellison, who was running the CPC meeting reportedly called out Grayson for the disruption. An unidentified source told the Hill all the Democrats were “appalled” at Grayson’s behavior adding, “It was embarrassing for him and embarrassing for us that he behaved that way.””

    Wendy’s Serves Up Big Kiosk Expansion As Wage Hikes Hit Fast Food
    http://www.investors.com/politics/policy/wendys-serves-up-kiosks-as-wages-rise-hits-fast-food-group/

    “Wendy’s (WEN) said that self-service ordering kiosks will be made available across its 6,000-plus restaurants in the second half of the year as minimum wage hikes and a tight labor market push up wages.”

    Take that all you “Fight for $15” idiots.

    • My first job out of high school was in fast food. I had a mean overbearing stingy boss, obnoxious (and frequently lecherous) customers, was on my feet almost constantly, and got paid peanuts. I learned more in eight months on that job than I’d learned in all my years in high school. I truly believe it’s the sort of experience every young person should have. But as the minimum wage keeps getting jacked up, those entry-level service jobs are going to disappear. How in the heck is an inexperienced young person with no marketable skill supposed to get work experience, when the government forces employers to pay them twice as much as they’re worth? Any employer who did that would be out of business in a week.

    • Wait . . . wut? It’s like they’ve never heard of Philia. . . Oh, wait, this is my generation, they probably haven’t.
      People need to learn that their particular fan-fic kinks aren’t canon. Criminy. I mean. . . I like a steamy fin-fic as much as the next sinful mortal gal, but I never confuse that with canon. (and, I realize it’s a weakness, and am working on it)
      And the canon philia/ bromance between Stevie and Bucky is perfection and these dumasses need to stop talking crap about my would-be-husband. (Either one of them. I hear Chris Evens wants to be a dad and likes ice cream, while I think Sebastian Stan is married, so I guess I pick Mr. Evans. And yes, imagine that with pink floaty hearts and rainbows).

    Target CEO Defends Pro-Transgender Policy, Stocks Crash Down Another $2 Billion
    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/05/12/target-ceo-says-reaction-bathroom-policy-just-like-first-used-blacks-ads-2/

    “Cornel made his early morning statements on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” business show as part of his effort to to reassure investors that the company can repair its self-inflicted wound. “The stance we took … is very similar to many of our retail peers,” he told watching Wall Streeters. “As a company … we listen to our guests, we listen to our team members.”

    But his pitch failed — the company’s stock crashed by roughly $3.50 per share after his appearance, down to the $75.70 level…”
