My Brush with Celebrity

Shortly after I started on Facebook I became friends with a brilliant writer who is a columnist for a major political blog. I don’t want to mention the name; it could cause irreparable harm to his reputation having friends like me. Anyway, we were discussing the wretched, slimy reptile known as the governor of Virginia. As we were waxing poetic about what a steaming pile of toad excrement he was, Kathleen Willey — yes,THAT Kathleen Willey — joined the conversation. We echanged a few thoughts and when I lamented how frustrating it was that these two felons have never and WILL never pay a price for their crimes, she told me not to be too sure. Maybe there’s something she knows that we don’t.
It was clear the assault she suffered at the hands of former president Ben T. Penis may never fully heal. At least there is some solace that she, Paula Jones, Juanita Broadrick, and all the other victims of this soulless sociopath got to see Hillary Rotten Clinton get humiliated last November. As they say, revenge is a dish best served cold.

How The Left Gets Away With Unlawful Discrimination

In the United States of today, only liberals and the far-left are allowed to discriminate without fear of penalty and do so with a vengeance.
For the last 40 years-plus, liberals and the far-left have not only come to dominate the media, academia, and entertainment, but have systematically engaged in an effort to limit or outright eradicate Republican, conservative, libertarian, independent, and even Christian thought.

Judge Rejects Palin’s Lawsuit Against New York Times

YOU CAN SLANDER PUBLIC FIGURES AT WILL AS LONG AS THEY’RE CONSERVATIVES. JUST SAY YOU DIDN’T MEAN TO IF YOU GET CAUGHT. COURTS ARE A FORGIVING LOT.
Judge Jed Rakoff said Tuesday that while the offending editorial contained a few factual inaccuracies, they did not rise to the level of defamation of a public figure, the Associated Press reported. He also noted the Times subsequently issued a correction.

Hurricane survivor rips CNN for exploitation
IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THIS, IT’S WORTH WATCHING. THE MEDIA ARE PRESSING EVERYBODY TO TRY TO GET A NEGATIVE OPINION OF THE PRESIDENT THAT THEY CAN FEED OFF OF.
Did CNN wander through the shelter and corner her when she was clearly still reeling from what she went through or were they stationed somewhere inside the shelter where people who wanted to talk could approach? There’s a fine line, as Harry Enten said, between humanizing the disaster and exploiting it. It’s not obvious from this snippet which side of the line CNN was on.

MONDAY:
Coalition of Leftists Begin 10-day “March To Confront White Supremacy”

Activists are set to start a 10-day march from Charlottesville, Va., to Washington, D.C., on Monday to confront white supremacy and demand President Trump’s removal from office.
“The March to Confront White Supremacy,” is set to start in Charlottesville Monday, Aug. 28 and end in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, Sept. 6. Organizers say the march will be followed by an occupation of Washington with daily nonviolent demonstrations.

YESTERDAY:
It Only Took A Day For The March To DC To Lose Nearly All Of The Marchers
The March to DC from Charlottesville, Va., started with nearly 200 marchers Monday, but by Tuesday morning there were only 35 marchers.
The overnight rains were enough to keep all but “about 35” from marching Monday morning, the day after the pep talk when police escorted the group from Emancipation Park downtown Sunday

Box Office Bust: Revenue Down 70% Compared to August 2016

THEY BLAME IT ON THE HURRICANE, ON THE ECONOMY. THERE’S AN OBVIOUS ANSWER THEY WON’T ADMIT: THEY CALL TRUMP HITLER, CALL US NAZIS, FASCISTS, RACISTS, BIGOTS, WE’RE STUPID, WE’RE EVIL, BLAH BLAH BLAH. THEN THEY EXPECT US TO SHELL OUT $30 TO GO TO ONE OF THEIR STUPID MOVIES AND SPEND ANOTHER $20 ON POPCORN AND A SODA. FAT CHANCE.

GOP Rep’s Proposal Would Defund Mueller Probe After 6 Months

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) has proposed an amendment to the upcoming federal spending bill that would “severely curtail” Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of President Trump after six months.

The congressman’s amendment stipulates that no funds from the spending package “may be used to fund activities pursuant to [the special counsel probe] later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act.”

THIS COULD BE DONE UNLESS RYAN TELLS HIS PACK OF RINOS THEY NEED TO KEEP THE INVESTIGATION GOING

Houston Police Nab 14 Armed Robbers and Looters as City Struggles with Harvey Aftermath
If convicted, those arrested could face heavier than average sentences due to laws that provide stiffer penalties for such crimes committed during a crisis. The average penalty for home invasions or robberies is two to 20 years, but under crisis conditions, the penalties jump to five years to life.
Chief Acevedo warned lawbreakers that the city would not “tolerate people victimizing others.”

The Wages of Sin

After graduation in 1968, I went on a senior class trip to the East Coast, mainly D.C. (we stayed in Arlington) and New York City. My first (and last) trip to the Big Apple. We stayed at the Taft Hotel in Times Square. This was before Giuliani cleaned it up. There was this one prost…. but I digress. I had been smoking at that time about a year, a victim of peer pressure by some sleazy criminal types I worked with at the hamburger stand. When I went on the trip, smokes were about $.40 per pack here. In New York, this is 50 years ago, they were already $2.50. Minimum wage was $1.25/hour. Figure it out.
I smoked 2 packs a day for almost 40 years. It didn’t matter how much it cost or how broke I was, I always found the money for cigarettes. If it was -20 outside and I had 2 cigs left to last until tomorrow I’d get dressed and drive to the gas station to make sure I didn’t run out. Take it from one who knows….nicotine is as addictive as heroin. I used to get so aggravated when they raised the price of smokes because it was never a dime or a quarter. It was always a dollar at a time. “It’s to get people to quit smoking,” they said.
Bullshit.
Smokers are the most overtaxed and underrepresented people in the country. All this is is an easy way to raise more money for your friendly neighborhood politicians to piss away, because only 1/4 of the population smokes and non-smokers couldn’t care less.
NYC hikes price of pack of cigarettes to $13, highest in US

“We are sending a loud and clear message that we will not let their greed kill any more New Yorkers without a fight,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a bill signing ceremony at a Brooklyn hospital. “These new laws will not only help reduce the number of smokers in our city, but also save lives.”
WHAT A CROCK. THIS IS ANOTHER MONEY GRAB BY THIS STINKING COMMIE AND HIS DEMOCRAT FRIENDS.

THEY ESTIMATE AT LEAST 70% OF CIGARETTES SOLD IN GOTHAM ARE BROUGHT FROM PLACES LIKE NORTH CAROLINA WHERE CIGARETTES ARE HALF WHAT THEY ARE IN THIS LIBERAL SEWER.

I neglected my health for years because I didn’t have insurance. I couldn’t sleep, I had trouble breathing, and I began passing out for no reason. That happens when your heart stops completely for a few seconds. On March 8, 2013, I was in the shower. My wife heard a thump and came in the bathroom. She pulled back the curtain and I was lying in the bottom of the tub and didn’t remember anything. She told me to get dressed and she took me to the ER. Nine days later I was released. I had a pacemaker for my irregular heartbeat, pills for the Type II diabetes they told me I had, an oxygen machine for my severe emphysema, and a V-Pap machine for my severe sleep apnea.
My first day there the cardiologist, who assisted when I had my quadruple bypass in 2004, came into my room and we talked.
“How many grandchildren do you have?”
“Seven.”
“Here are your choices. Quit smoking and play with the kids outside, or continue smoking and they can visit you while you sit in a chair with an oxygen tube in your nose.”
When my wife came to see me that day I told her I had a full pack of cigarettes and a lighter in my coat pocket. I told her to take them home and give them to our son-in-law who smokes.
I quit smoking that day, cold turkey. Since then I’ve never had a craving, never wanted one. If you don’t really want to quit there’s no pill, patch, or gum that will make you do it. When you really want to, you will. I can enjoy watching the kids’ baseball, football, and volleyball games. Fishing with my grandson is the happiest time of my life. I still have emphysema and it will never go away. At the time I didn’t really think about the fact I was killing myself or just didn’t care. All I’m trying to do now is squeeze a little extra time before it runs out for me.
