A match made in h… Well, somewhere

But definitely a perfect match.

‘Pharma Bro’ Martin Shkreli Endorses Donald Trump for President
Controversial former pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli will support Donald Trump for president in a matchup against likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, according to a tweet sent out Thursday night.

Although, with a little luck, Shkreli would have more in common with Clinton.

Looks like Amazon has some good prices on bulk popcorn for the season.

What rising rates?

Perhaps Comey should read his own agency’s reports.

FBI Director James Comey Deplores ‘Peculiar Indifference’ to Rising Murders Across Country
“Something is happening in America,” with “cities that have nothing in common with each other experiencing [an] uptick” in violence, Comey said at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, an icon of the civil rights movement.

Nationally, the murder rate is dropping to record lows.

True, there have been recent spikes in certain cities. But they absolutely do have something in common: decades of Democrap control and victim disarmament.

I don’t blame her

Woman caught on video taking bat to truck: “I told you to move”
In the clip, the woman is seen standing behind the truck and counting before taking the bat to the truck’s back tail light. She’s heard telling him, “I told you to move.”
[…]
Ray said he suspects the incident unfolded because he was sitting in his truck making calls after he filled his tank.

He admits he lost track of time, possibly staying there for about an hour.

An hour. Heck, if she crowdfunds her legal expenses, I’d consider kicking in.

I recall trying to get gas at a crowded truck stop; lines at every pump. I was up next. The idiot finished pumping and went inside, to pay I assumed.

Didn’t come back. Turns out he’d gone inside to the restaurant for lunch. A sitdown lunch. The gas pump just made a convenient parking space.

(Yeah, I managed to get into another line and fuel up eventually.)

Down With Agriculture!

The sinister, secret history of a food that everybody loves
The argument depends on the differences between how grains and tubers are grown. Crops like wheat are harvested once or twice a year, yielding piles of small, dry grains. These can be stored for long periods of time and are easily transported — or stolen.

Root crops, on the other hand, don’t store well at all. They’re heavy, full of water, and rot quickly once taken out of the ground. Yuca, for instance, grows year-round and in ancient times, people only dug it up right before it was eaten. This provided some protection against theft in ancient times. It’s hard for bandits to make off with your harvest when most of it is in the ground, instead of stockpiled in a granary somewhere.

But the fact that grains posed a security risk may have been a blessing in disguise. The economists believe that societies cultivating crops like wheat and barley may have experienced extra pressure to protect their harvests, galvanizing the creation of warrior classes and the development of complex hierarchies and taxation schemes. (emphasis added-cb)

They say that like it’s a good thing. Warrior classes, war, overlords imposing taxes and servitude…

Democrats and Republicans…

Politics.

Works for me

How To Beat the DOJ Lawsuit
Rush Limbaugh has the legal argument in hand that should allow North Carolina to defeat the Department of Justice lawsuit overturning that state’s law banning transgendered use of ladies’ public bathrooms.

The solution here might be that the North Carolina governor could say that we don’t identify as North Carolina anymore, and therefore your lawsuit against us is irrelevant. We’re not North Carolina. We don’t identify that way, as long as your lawsuit — I mean, it’s absurd here! What do you mean, the way I want to present one day? So North Carolina, I say just turn it right around, “You know what, we do not identify as North Carolina for the length of your suit.”

Once we consider the advantages of the Feddies’ position that delusions induced by mental illness trump physical reality, lots of options open up.

Delinquent on fed taxes? “I’m not John Smith. I identify as Lolita McMuff now, and that tax bill isn’t mine.”

Got a criminal conviction that bars you from some office? “Barry Charles Laughton, Jr.?” Nah, I’m Stacie Laughton now.”

Or maybe you just always wanted to be a 6’5″ Chinese woman.

Personally, I think this would an excellent time for North Carolina to realize that they identify as an independent nation. The United States has bought that argument before. Even encouraged it in advance. They could fund it by identifying as George Soros and writing checks.

It ain’t identity theft if you identify as what/whoever. Apparently.
