2019_01 22 roe v wade

HELL NO: The New York State legislature is voting to keep the killing legal — Just in case SCOTUS overturns Roe and Doe, the pro-aborts in the abortion capital of the country want ensure that abortion remains legal throughout pregnancy for any reason whatsoever. They call this “Reproductive Health Act.” Yeah, right. Abortion ain’t about health and it definitely ain’t about reproduction! But I can see why they wouldn’t want to call it “Keep It Legal to Dismember Pain-Capable Babies”, even if that would be more honest. Oh wait. They’re Democrats. Honest isn’t in their vocabulary. My bad.

Anyway, I sent my state senator and rep the following: “Slaughtering living, DNA-unique, human beings has nothing to do with HEALTH. Condoning the poisoning, stabbing, and/or dismemberment of them AFTER THEY ARE CAPABLE OF FEELING PAIN is nothing short of a HUMAN RIGHTS ATROCITY. Vote NO.”

I’m not expecting much resistance to this bill. New York is dominated by Pro-Abortion Lefties. I mean, seriously … we keep electing SCHUMER, for crying out loud. Our governor has even notified pro-lifers that there is no room in New York for us. His ilk in NYC are busy working on how to use eminent domain to strip property from people they don’t like. I’m hoping we can hang on to our house at least until we’re done using it. Getting raptured would be good.

OUTSTANDING SNARK: I posted this before, but it’s so good, here it is again in case you missed it — Watch it all the way to the end. She has a great closing visual. LOL Ignore the chyron. This was recorded before the truth about Covington came out.

REDUCTION IN FORCE: The shut down began December 20, 2018 — “When agencies furlough employees for more than 30 calendar days or 22 discontinuous work days, they must use RIF procedures. An employee can be terminated or moved into an available position.” Can Trump use the shut down to eliminate wasteful workers? Will he? This would certainly be the best time to lay off lots of fat, given that the private sector is booming and employees are looking for people.

2019_01 22 good time to lay off

BY A SENIOR OFFICIAL IN THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION: The Daily Caller is taking the rare step of publishing this anonymous op-ed at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose career would be jeopardized by its disclosure. We believe publishing this essay anonymously is the only way to deliver an important perspective to our readers.

“As one of the senior officials working without a paycheck, a few words of advice for the president’s next move at shuttered government agencies: lock the doors, sell the furniture, and cut them down.

“Federal employees are starting to feel the strain of the shutdown. I am one of them. But for the sake of our nation, I hope it lasts a very long time, till the government is changed and can never return to its previous form.

“The lapse in appropriations is more than a battle over a wall. It is an opportunity to strip wasteful government agencies for good.”

READ THE REST!

2019_01 16 jw la voter rolls

THANK GOD FOR JUDICIAL WATCH: Judicial Watch is forcing LA County to clear out as many as 1.5 million inactive registered names from their voter rolls. These removals are required by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), a federal law requiring the removal of inactive registrations from the voter rolls after two general federal elections (encompassing from 2 to 4 years). Inactive voter registrations belong, for the most part, to voters who have moved to another county or state or have passed away. Los Angeles County has about 10 million residents. Removing these names will make it that much harder for Democrats to cheat in the 2020 election.

TWO YEARS IN OFFICE: Dr. Carol M. Swain summarizes Trump’s accomplishments “Although the news is currently dominated by the federal government shutdown and the conflict between Trump and Democratic leaders over the funding of a wall on the Mexican border, it’s worthwhile to look beyond the headlines. What you will find will be shocking for any person unfortunate enough to get their news exclusively from America’s mainstream media.”

BLEXIT RALLY: Hundreds of people from across the country came out wearing MAGA hats and waving homemade “build the wall” signs to the inaugural Blexit rally at the Globe Theatre in downtown Los Angeles, California, on Sunday. BLEXIT is about blacks exiting the Democrat plantation.

MEDIA BIAS: Newsbusters analysis — Despite what was a much delayed but important avalanche of headlines about the group’s anti-Semitism, the 2019 Women’s March took place Saturday and it still received nearly 15 times the broadcast network newscast coverage of the 47th annual March for Life that was held Friday.

PATRIOT PASS: Going after small-donor dollars — Republicans have agreed to create a new platform dubbed Patriot Pass, which will be used to cultivate and process online donations. The idea is to cultivate small dollar donors and hopefully emulate the success of the Democrats’ ActBlue fundraiser that plowed over $700 million in small-dollar donations into Democratic coffers in the 2018 campaign. As part of the agreement, Victory Passport, a small-dollar platform used widely by Republican congressional candidates, is expected to eventually shutter and encourage its clients to use the new platform.

2019_01 22 cumulus clouds

WORD NERD: Cumulate and its far more common relative accumulate both come from the Latin word cumulare, meaning “to heap up.” Cumulate and accumulate overlap in meaning, but you’re likely to find cumulate mostly in technical contexts. The word’s related adjective, cumulative, however, is used more widely. Cumulus can mean “heap” or “accumulation”, but most people use it only for dense puffy clouds with rounded outlines and flat bottoms.

  1. I’ve seen four-handed piano, but I’ve never heard of a four-handed guitar, much less four-handed guitar duet. Nice.

    I notice the blond girl was doing her fretwork, not by reaching under the neck as usual, but coming at it from above, basically reversing the fingering. Impressive.

      I loved it … except for the distracting places where the girls’ long pony tails got into the seated players’ faces.

      Hair in faces really bugs me for some reason, most especially when it’s a profession whose job demands a tight, safe ‘do. Directors can’t seem to resist the allure of long hair flying loose, but dang it all, it does NOT belong on waitresses, cops, soldiers, or super heroes! Sheesh.

      I thought my girls would give up their long hair when they went to the big sand box where it got hot enough to “feel like the hand dryers in public bathrooms.” Nopes. They said it was actually easier and cooler to keep it long and tied into a tight bun than maintain the “doesn’t touch the top of the collar” required otherwise.

      Another pet peeve is bangs that hang into a person’s eyes. Makes me nuts. Cut it! Get a barrette! Something!

        Yeah, I noticed that, too. Distracting, but after enough of it, I figured, this is a known thing to them and allowing the annoying hairplay is part of the act. There’s even one point where the blond looks down at her seated companion and they smile at each other while the hair gets in her face.

        Like you said, directors like the long, sweeping hair. Because so do certain viewers.

        Some even have mysterious and alluring hair in the face to be a kind of trademark!
