Some random stuff after wasting the morning slithering around the interwebs...

is interwebs a word?

What makes us do this?  Why do we feel the need to "know" everything that is going on? It's a question for the techie world we inhabit now.  I have no answer.

Then again - I sort of do have an answer.

Every morning at the close of my morning pages I ask myself:
  1. What do I need to know?
  2. What do I need to try?
  3. What do I need to accept?
  4. What do I need to do?
This morning's insight into my wasted time cruising aimlessly around the news sites, Daily Mail (pictures are great), Facecrap, (but no kitteh videos since I have my very own kitteh roaming around my desk.)

The conclusion I came to is that when you feel the need to almost live vicariously through someone or something else it means you don't have a life.

Ouch!

So I'm headed outside to move a rock border, spread some bark, water my veggies, and, well - get a life.

How about you?

Minneapolis: Somali Muslim Police Officer Shoots White Woman in Cold Blood...

and the libtards are silent.

I don't have the will or the time for an extended rant, but I can't help noticing that my libtard bellwethers in Minnesota, who proudly proclaim their sadness over the Philando Castile shooting by a police officer, have not one damn thing to say about a Somali blasting away a white woman who called the police for help. They call the police shooting of Castile a travesty of justice after a jury of 12 of their neighbors acquitted the police officer of all charges, and yet are curiously silent about the murder of Justine Damond.

Over the past few days I have read hundreds of comments from Facebook to blogs and news sites.  The overwhelming number are are saying that the shooter, Mohamed Noor, being a muslim and a Somali has nothing whatsoever to do with the shooting.  Noor is not cooperating with the investigators and "offered his condolences" to the family of the victim while requesting that we "respect his privacy."  Is it possible to be any more tone deaf than that?  His offers his condolences after blasting this woman through the door of the police vehicle and across his "stunned" partner?  

Feckless mayor of Minneapolis, Betsy Hodges, appeared on Good Morning America declaring her distress in her little girl voice and appeared to be just short of pearl clutching.

The source of the problem starts at the top with Governor Mark Dayton encouraging the settling of Somali's in Minnesota, who also told the citizens of St. Cloud, MN that if they didn't like the Somalis being settled there they should move.  The outcome has been less than stellar as the Minneapolis Somali community produces an astonishing number of ISIS recruits.

The problems caused by this influx of people unwilling to become Americans has necessitated the local agencies, including the police department, to hire Somali's as a way to "bridge the gap" and bring the disparate communities together.  It's not the job of the citizens of this country to pander to the Somalis and make straight their path.  It's the job of the muslims.  Period!

Now I'm going to say something that may make people angry:

This Somali muslim should have never been allowed to become a police officer.  There is not a shred of doubt in my mind that strings were pulled and eyes averted to get him on the force so the SJW's of the Twin Cities could celebrate their diversity and pat themselves on the back for being so tolerant.

Shame on them!

Donald Trump: Made in America Week...

lovely and inspiring.

The White House revealed a three-week campaign starting with a “Made in America” themed week, which will promote U.S. jobs and products beginning Monday.

"But we must also fight the unfair trade practices that have gutted our industry, and that includes cracking down on the predatory online sales of foreign goods."

Ya think?

I used to have a fairly thriving business on eBay until I had to compete with sellers from China and Hong Kong who were selling the same product for $.01 with free shipping when I had to charge $4.99 + $2.60 shipping.

Yesterday at the White House, Trump showcased products made in each of the 50 states.  I couldn't help noticing one of the companies was manufacturing wooden bowls made in Alaska.

They're lovely bowls, but very pricey.  Did you know that one of our favorite blogger buddies makes the most beautiful bowls, wooden boxes, and pens I have ever seen?  Woodsterman is called Woodsterman for a reason.

Visit his website and witness some of the finest wood working made in America.  His lovely wife makes quilts and purses - hence the name Dust and Lint.

Another quality woodworker of a larger variety is Hardnox of Nox and Friends.  He and his brother design and produce handcrafted furniture and interior accessories using vintage reclaimed barn wood and live edge slab timber of walnut, oak, maple, hickory, cherry, and other select timber.  You can view his gorgeous creations at Westphalia Wood Works.

One thing I pay special attention to on Amazon is that my purchases are from an American seller, and in most cases, are manufactured here.  I did purchase a case for my Kindle that came from China and if I had known that I would have paid a bit more to purchase from an American seller.

Unlike eBay, Amazon is not littered with crap being shipped from China and I've yet to see a foreign seller on Prime.  At least they have that part right - and we thank them.

Need better habits? Try this...

because we all need a break from politics.

If you search Amazon with the key word "habit" the first book that comes up is the best seller The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, by Charles Duhigg.  

Several years ago, based on the positive reviews, I bought the book, and hated it.  I thought it was a complete waste of time.  I linked to the book because my opinion is in the minority and you may profit from the information Duhigg gives.

Duhigg's has a bit of good information on how habits are formed, but didn't give very many real world actions to take other than substituting a good habit for a bad habit, such as replacing something like smoking with exercise.  If you hate to exercise that's not going to work, and frankly, I consider smoking as more of an addiction and not a habit.

There's another almost 10K results on Amazon based on that search if you have the time to peruse them. Obviously, people want to change a lot of habits. 

Before we continue, allow me to inform you that I am not an "expert" in the field of neuroscience, productivity, or behavioral science. Let me also add that most "experts" in these fields are usually not really "experts" either.

What I can offer you is years and years (about 50) of study in these fields and a simple way to help you form new habits that support the life you want to live.  Because it's all about simple. My entire life I've always looked for a better, faster, and more efficient way to do any task, whether at home or at a job.  One of my motto's has always been, "There must be an easier way."  It's a habit of mine.

What is a Habit


A habit is nothing more than something we do routinely - usually without giving it much thought.  Some habits are good in that they enrich our life, and others we call "bad" because they hinder our life fulfillment. 

Some habits are what I call neutral.  Having a cup of coffee first thing upon arising is neutral, neither good nor bad - unless you're allergic to coffee and drinking it may kill you, in which case it's a bad habit. 

The First Habit Tracker



In 1776, Benjamin Franklin, at the age of 20, created what I think of as the first habit tracker.  He listed thirteen virtues down the left side of a page and across the top of the page were the days of the week.  Every day that he did not succeed in performing one of the virtues he got a little dot in the square for each time he failed. He devoted one week at a time to each of the virtues.  After thirteen weeks he started over.







Tracking Positive vs Negative 

 

While Franklin's quest for moral goodness is indeed worthy, tracking a negative rather than a positive could be counter productive.  Who needs to be reminded on a daily basis all the ways they failed to live up to their expectations?  I'm not discounting the value of an examination of conscience on a daily basis, but that's not the best way to form new habits. 

Let's take a moment to examine a real world habit tracker and forming good habits.  It's not so much about changing habits as it is forming new ones.  It's simple and effective, because who has time for complicated?

First


Decide on a few good habits you'd like to form.  I suggest no more than five. Let's say you want to read the Bible every day, write in your journal first thing in the morning, take your vitamins, go for a walk every day, and pick up your clutter. 

If you scoot around the internet you'll find people wanting to list 30 or 40 habits on their tracker. DO NOT DO THAT!  Good grief - it's hard enough tracking 4 or 5.  After a potential habit on your tracker becomes a routine habit you can remove it and add more. 

Second 


Print out a habit tracker or make your own on Excel.  My husband uses this one (I love people who make free downloadable stuff for us to use.) Guys - listen up.  Hubby is like most men and hates change. Yet from day one he loved the concept of a habit tracker.  

I use my daily organizing journal and write in the habits next to each day with a little box that's blacked out if I succeed in performing the action.

Right now I haveMP for morning pages, V for vitamins, F for fiber (not doing well with that one), TH for listening to my subliminal tapes, and N for nap. I used to have E for giving my kitteh Erica fish oil, but removed it when I realized that forcing fish oil down the maw of an unwilling cat was not worth the trouble. It's okay to change your mind. 


Linking


Try to link your new habit to a time of day.  Obviously morning pages are done first thing in the morning.  My vitamins are linked to breakfast, and the subliminal tapes are linked to internet perusal and post writing.  I don't have picking up clutter on my tracker yet, but I'm going to add that today and probably link it to after dinner. 

Breaking the Chain


Here's what's going to happen:

Sad broken chain
 As the month progresses and you're making your little x's or coloring in your squares, you will be forming a chain.  Guess what?  You're not going to want to break that chain.  Human nature will intervene and making your little x's each day is going to bring you a dopamine hit that will make you feel super good.  Who doesn't want to feel good? It won't happen immediately, but as that chain dances merrily across your page you'll be more and more unwilling to break it.

It's okay to list a bad habit that you wish to break.  But it's going to be recorded as a positive.  Say you want to quit swearing.  For each day that you don't swear, you get to make an x.  Gradually, without you even noticing it, your bad habits will be replaced with good habits. 

Now isn't this simple?

Protest and Russia fatigue...

I haz it.

And I bet most of the country does, too.

Every week it's some over-hyped group or another protesting, marching, and just generally making pests of themselves.  The Ladies Who March™ will be out today disrupting the lives of working Americans by snarling traffic from Virginia to DC. 

And how about the latest outrage over the congressional dress code?  It seems Nancy Pelosi is all up in arms about having to cover the aforementioned arms.  And somehow it's all Paul Ryan's fault.

Did we elect these clowns to go to DC and argue about the clothes the women are wearing?  I approve of the dress code as it stands.  Just the thought of Nancy Pelosi in a sleeveless dress makes me quiver - and not with excitement.

The latest "Trump is in bed with Russia" crap is winding down.  Let's all have a wonderful weekend and rest up for whatever outrage the MSM gins up next week.

This weekend I plan to post on habits - both good and bad, and how to change the ones you don't like.

I have a fully loaded Kindle (currently reading a book about time perception), a library tote full of books, one used book I snatched up at the grocery store for cheap, a huge container of salad, and enough country style ribs whipped up in my Instant Pot (25 minutes to done) - all of which means I don't have to cook for at least two days.  Yay, me.

The Ladies Who March™ are getting ready to whip out their pink pussy hats and march against the NRA...

 this upcoming Friday, 'cause the good Lord knows it's the NRA's fault that people are killing each other with guns in Chicago.

What triggered all of this newest outrage? An NRA ad with Dana Loesche which I just watched for the first time moments ago and posted below.

Women's March Statement from their Facecrap page:
We know that we are not safe. But we will not be intimidated into silence. 
Recent actions of the NRA demonstrate not only a disregard for the lives of black and brown people in America, but appear to be a direct endorsement of violence against Women’s March leaders and all people exercising the constitutional right to protest. On July 14th, Women’s March and partners will mobilize a mass demonstration, again grounded in the principles of Kingian nonviolence, to denounce the false and intimidating rhetoric of hatred and send a clear message that our movement will proudly and bravely continue to strive for the respect of the civil and human rights of all people.

So somehow the NRA is responsible for 1,944 shootings in Chicago so far this year with 1,606 shot and wounded and 335 shot and killed.  If we look at the stats from 2015 we'll see that, when adjusted for population, some cities are even worse.

The top eight cities have a commonality in the number of black residents.  It's black people shooting other black people with guns that are, no doubt, not even legal.

A comment from an outraged feminazi on the Women's March Facecrap page:
The recent actions of the NRA demonstrate not only a disregard for the lives of black and brown people in America, but appear to be a direct endorsement of violence against all people exercising their right to protest (in particular this time Women's March leaders). I do not understand how some people do not see the point here. They would fight to their deaths to protect their right to carry a gun, but don't see the parity of defending their right to protest. We are all struggling to protect the same thing - our constitutional rights!

There ya have it folks - it's the NRA's fault, and by extension you, that black people are slaughtering other black people.  And somehow or anther the NRA is not defending their right to protest.

Listen up "ladies":  The NRA does not give a rip that you are going to gather in front of their headquarters tomorrow and then march seventeen miles to the Department of Justice in DC.  Protesters will have to hang out somewhere until the next morning for a rally at Justice.  Damn - that sounds like a great time in the heat and humidity of DC.

And further more, no one else cares either.  So knock yourselves out. Have a great time, go home and pat yourself on the back, have a soy latte in a cute little cafe, and commiserate about what a great job you're doing to stop violence.

You could make a bigger difference by staying home and doing something to serve your husband and your family - you know, sort of 1950's style.

Dopes.

Here's the NRA ad that set their little hearts a beating:

Russia, Russia, Russia: Hannity interviews Donald Trump, Jr....

and I couldn't care less.

As I've said to others, this is just the latest MSM outrage du jour and next week it will be something else.  I suspect many other people feel the same way.  There's only so many times you can claim the sky is falling before people tune you out.  It's obvious the sky is still there and Donald Trump is still president.

We had 8 years of the MSM cheering Odumbo for everything he did or said.  We were told over and over that he was the greatest president of all time when clearly he was not.  And now I'm supposed to believe them when they will do anything to subvert Trump?  Not going to happen.

Mike at Cold Fury:
[...]And that’s what it all comes down to now, I think. The Left’s target isn’t Trump now; maybe it never was. The target is Trump’s supporters. They hope to demoralize us, to make us disengage, to inspire us to resignation and defeatism and acceptance of the eternal status quo. They want us to believe that the Swamp can never be drained, to believe that Trump is a fraud who never had any intention of draining it in the first place. They want us to throw up our hands and walk away. 
And knowing that, I now believe it is absolutely vital that Trump continues to get out there among the people and do the occasional huge rally—to ditch the Swamp dwellers, to spite and disdain them, and get out among We the People and inspire them anew. I think it’s vital for him, and it’s vital for us too. It’s all too easy to be dismayed when all you get is a steady diet of the sort of stinking swill fed us by the establishment media propagandists; hell, I myself talked to three friends of mine today who were completely convinced that with this latest nothingburger, they finally had Trump nailed at last. They were really worried about it; Old Media had gotten to them at last.  read the rest

Tucker Carlson to Brad Woodhouse, former DNC communications director: "What the hell are you talking about?"

my question exactly.

Listen to this ignorant elitist creep pontificating and understand this is what all the libtards think.  And it's also what they think about you.

Trump defends Western Civilization and the left goes nuts.  Why?  Are they really so propagandized and dumbed down that they actually believe living in a hut on top of flea infested sand pile is comparable to living in an air conditioned house?  Silly question.  Of course they do.

Is rap, filled with foul language and promoting violence against "hoes and bitches", equal to a classical symphony?

Is speaking proper English and not wearing your pants around your knees a dog whistle for white nationalism?

Is claiming our way of life is better than others a hate filled statement?  In their world it is.  And yet I witness the yuppie libtards living la dolce vita slurping their over-priced soy lattes in their trendy corner coffee cafes while bashing capitalism.

The Declination and Liberty's Torch do a great job of laying down the fundamentals of reaching the truth in any situation.  And the truth is not what the libtards are trying to ram down our throat by the force of their incessant nattering.

Just wash that tech right outta your hair...

because it's making you stupid.

Is there beginning to be a backlash against smart phones?

Possibly.

I popped over the Costco yesterday to grab some milk and a six pack of Moleskine notebooks and had an interesting discussion with one of my former Costco co-workers who is assistant manager of the store.

He was interested in the fact that I was buying those notebooks and wanted to know if I was one of those "pen and paper" kind of people.

"Well, yes.  I never met a scrap of paper, notebook, or pen I didn't feel an urgent need to add to my life."

 He then questioned me about different tech things in my life.  When he asked about my phone, I whipped out my little basic Tracfone and he thought that was hysterical.

" No iPhone", he asked?

"Why in heavens name would I need an iPhone?  I'm home most days and have a perfectly useful PC" (which I spend waaaaaaaaay too much time surfing.)

I did assure him that I wasn't a complete Luddite by informing him that I did own a Kindle Paperwhite.  That seemed to ease his mind a bit.

I've been struggling with the deleterious affects of too much computer use and reliance on "research."  It seems I can no longer do the most basic of activities without copious amounts of research.  I've been making chicken salad for over 50 years and yet yesterday I had to Google chicken salad recipes.  WTHell? And while I'm on the computer I'm constantly flitting about from one tab to another - sometimes while in the middle of an article.  My dog has a longer attention span.

After watching the fine video below (while continuing my flitting as it played on anther tab), I thought back to yesterday at Costco and guess what?  I don't recall seeing one person in that entire warehouse with their nose stuck in a phone.  I perused the peeps sitting in the food court and no phones were in sight there either.  Hmmmmmm.  Even a few months ago you would have witnessed many people ignoring friends and family in favor of their phone.

Two days ago I was at our local grocery store and also do not recall seeing one phone.  I don't even remember seeing anyone with a phone in their hand as they surveyed the cucumbers and thumped the watermelons. Are people starting to wake up?

I have nothing against tech.  It has opened up amazing vistas of knowledge and convenience.  I do object to tech running us instead of us running tech.

So I'm going to re-watch the video (highly recommended) and then go out and do some low tech weed pulling.  





Speaking of tech - Prime Day at Amazon starts at 9:00 pm ET.  I have my eye on a lithium battery operated EGO weed wacker that I'm hoping will be discounted.

And for those who are still in need of an Instant Pot electric pressure cooker it's usually heavily discounted.  I will do my best to keep you informed.  Word is that it will be in the $60.00 to $70.00 range.  That's huge from a top price of $119.00.

If you're not a Prime Member, now is a good time to take advantage of the benefits.

What is all this G20 crazy crap going on and why should we care?...

because I sure don't.

Holy Carp - I just got home and realized I never hit the "publish" button.  Well - duh!  

(strong language alert)

A whole bunch of world "leaders" spend untold amount of money to gather together and glad hand each other.  I guess they're going to talk about global warming - or some other pointless crapola.

While they're having a party the deranged scurvy looking violent anti-capitalist protesters are sucking up public money in the form of extra police to quell the disturbances. And they hope to accomplish what exactly?

Typical G20 protesters 

And wow - just look at the hysteria surrounding the Putin and Trump meeting.  Trust me on this:  They're both laughing their asses off.


Quick!  Look!  Trump and Putin shaking hands.  Is this supposed to be some sort of private tete a tete in front of a gazillion cameras and hundreds of photos being snapped?  Notice also who's in control of that hand shake.  Hint:  it's not Putin.



You want to know how stupid people are?  One of the comments on the Youtube video of Trump's Warsaw speech (magnificent) said, "Did he just call the president of Poland "dude"?  That proves how stupid Trump is."  I. kid. you. not!


The Lovely State of Oregon Turns Even Uglier


How ugly?


Need an abortion?  Oregon will see to it that it's free - for everyone. 


My comments in red:
Oregon Gov. Kate Brown said Thursday that she plans to sign a sweeping, unprecedented bill requiring insurers to provide free (no such thing as free) abortions for their customers, including illegal immigrants.
“The ability to control our bodies (the time to control your body ladies  is before you spread your legs) and make informed decisions about health (what's abortion got to do with health?) are critical to providing all Oregonians the opportunity to achieve our full potential and live productive, thriving lives,” (unless you're the dead baby) the Democratic chief executive said in an email. “Attempts to deny access to contraceptives (no one has denied anyone contraception) and family planning (euphemism for killing babies) are an attack on all Oregonians, particularly women of color, low-income and young women.” (it's called eugenics, you fool - let's kill as many black babies as we possibly can)
The $10.2 million bill, which cleared the state House and Senate with no Republican votes, also comes as a badly needed boost for Planned Parenthood’s Oregon affiliate, (because God knows they need to make more money so they can pay PP president Cecile Richards 1 million per year) which helped write the measure (who elected PP to be representatives for the people of Oregon?) and pushed for its passage as it struggles to keep its doors open.
My disgust know no bounds.

I'm off to get a hair cut, visit Costco (yay!) and otherwise decompress from the wretched news - both fake and real, while our predicted high today is 100°.  Remember when cars didn't have a/c?  I do.

While CNN Obsesses About a Tweet Rep. Steve Scalise is Readmitted to Intensive Care Unit and Poland Cheers Trump...

CNN is so inept they can't even blackmail the right person.

It's obvious they've never heard of the Streisand Effect. 


Meantime, Steve Scalise, who suffered devastating wounds at the hand of an insane libtard, struggles with his recovery. 


House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was readmitted to ­MedStar Washington’s Intensive Care Unit today. He is listed in serious condition (downgraded from fair) due to new concerns about infection. The hospital did not elaborate on these concerns. 
Scalise’s condition had steadily improved since mid-June when he was shot by a left-wing gunman who trying to carry out the mass assassination of GOP members of Congress. The Louisiana congressman was released from intensive care nine days after the shooting. 
Now, however, he is back in intensive care. The hospital promised to provide an update on Scalise’s condition tomorrow (Thursday). 

Trump and Melania in Poland:

President Donald Trump spoke to thousands of cheering Poles in Warsaw on Thursday, calling their nation "the geographic heart of Europe" and praising their countrymen for shaking off both Nazi oppressors and Russian occupiers in the last century. 
"That's trouble. That's tough," he exclaimed.
"In those dark days, you have lost your land but you never lost your pride." 
Trump delivered his address in Krasinski Square, at the foot of a statue commemorating the 1994 Polish uprising against German occupiers. 
He and first lady Melania Trump laid a wreath at its base. 
Speaking behind bulletproof glass, he said Poles are "a people who truly know the value of what you defend."
After studying the history of Poland many years ago, I was always disturbed about the way Poland has been treated.  It made Polish jokes sound not very funny.

I suggest that we all quit paying attention to CNN tweets and instead listen to the original source of all their angst. 

“Just as Poland cannot be broken, I declare today for the world to hear that the West will never, ever be broken. Our values will prevail, our people will thrive, and our civilization will triumph.” 

Isn't it lovely to have a president that doesn't go all over the world trashing the U.S.A. and stands proudly for Western values? 

This is a very powerful speech.

Independence Day 2017...

eat, drink, and be merry (but don't blow off any fingers, please)

Take time to say a prayer for our country, our founding fathers, and our president.

While our past president (name withheld on purpose) tells us being patriotic is wrong, our current president, Donald J. Trump, is proud of our country and is not ashamed to declare it to the world.

I'm sipping coffee from my Trump cup, planning on pulling some democratic weeds, trimming some Republican trees, eating bacon, and hunkering down when temp heads up into the 90's.

Have a wonderful day!

Trump and Twitter...

a match made in heaven - or something.

Disclaimer:  I'm not a fan of Twitter.  I simply don't "get it." However, it's pretty clear that millions upon million (billions, actually) do get it.  In addition to tweeting these people also text, use Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and the myriad of other social media sites.

As much as I don't like seeing people walking around with their noses stuck in their phones, I am cognizant of the fact that not only is that horse out of barn, but has also galloped out of the paddock, and social interaction, barring some unforeseen event, is not going back to the way it used to be.

Trump is fighting a corrupt and dishonest media.  Using my libtard bellwethers on Facecrap, I'm here to tell you that they believe anything the New York Times, Washington Post, Daily Kos, and Huff and Puff have to say.  There is not one shred of discernment used by these people. For them, if it's anti-Trump, it's true.

While the libtards call for civility, a concept of which they know nothing, Trump has managed to thumb his nose at them and the MSM and goes directly to his supporters.  The list of violence and vulgarity from the left directed at conservatives would fill a book, starting with their calling Tea Party members "teabaggers" - a term the majority of us had never even heard.

Just who wants Trump to quit tweeting?  Why, the left, of course, and some elitist fake conservatives.  The left demands it because they know it's working, and the elitist fake conservatives are just virtue signalling.

After decades of being insulted and demonized by the left - which reached a crescendo during the past election (can you say homophobe, xenophobe, misogynist, racist, deplorable?), we've finally had enough and we have a president who understands that.  Every tweet he makes he's making for us.  Trump is not afraid to say what we're thinking and while our audience is limited, his audience is the world. 

So keep tweeting President Trump - and we thank you.  


Watch our President being presidential on July 1st at the Celebrate Freedom Rally at the Kennedy Center honoring veterans to start out your holiday weekend. I guarantee it will make you feel all warm and fuzzy. (if you want to skip the intro, Trump starts at 5:49)

No, really - watch it!
"Since the signing of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago, America always affirmed that liberty comes from our Creator. Our rights are given to us by God, and no earthly force can ever take those rights away." Donald Trump
"And above all else we know this - in America we don't worship government, we worship God." Donald Trump 
God bless and protect Donald J. Trump

Post Falls, Idaho Police - You Rock!...

I love our police department and also the Kootenai County Sheriffs.  They are exceptional.

This area is home to quite a few yellow bellied marmots.  They used to dart in and out of the rocks surrounding the parking lot of the original Costco in Spokane where I worked.  People here love them because they're so friendly.  Just imagine a large (20 lb) friendly squirrel begging for food and you've met a marmot.

This happened at my Walmart in Post Falls. 

A standoff, tense negotiations and a forced extraction of a stubborn suspect. It's just another night on the graveyard shift for officers with the Post Falls Police Department. 

June 30th Police Report:

"Officers responded to Walmart when a customer was unable to get her car to start. She opened her hood and found a rather large Marmot trapped in the engine compartment. With the assistance of a kind citizen and a handy tow truck operator from Recovery Masters the Officers worked tirelessly to remove the animal’s fur from the fan belt. 
Once Unstuck Chuck was free Officers began the tedious task of negotiation with the furry stowaway. Chuck was very reluctant to leave his new found feast of electrical wires. When attempts to talk him down failed the Officers and helpers turned to their tools and used multiple methods of extraction. 
Finally, Chuck gave up and fled the Dodge Neon. While congratulatory back patting was taking place Chuck returned to his life of crime and found another vehicle to unlawfully enter. Once again, Officers tried to reason with the rodent who now seemed tired and perhaps a little stressed out. 
Begrudgingly, he quickly gave up and was captured. Officers quickly took him into custody and left the area before Chuck could re-offend. 
We are happy to announce that Chuck was granted a full pardon and was released back into his natural habitat. He has been trespassed from Walmart."

Good job, guys!

Libtards demand civility in the wake of Trump's latest tweets...



Sen. Susan Collins MoreThis has to stop – we all have a job – 3 branches of gov’t and media. We don’t have to get along, but we must show respect and civility.







Civility?  After the left has demonized, insulted, harassed, and otherwise acted like jackasses?  Not going to happen because we're fed up.


T.L. Davis says it best:
[...] The call for civility is a call for surrender, because it is only the right that understands it. The collectivists work against every sense of civility. It is their tactic to assault civility, to thrust their hedonism in the faces of Christians, to attack the traditional marriage by expanding the definition into meaninglessness.
 I see no reason to be civil to those who profit on the deaths of hundreds of thousands of unborn; who clamor for the assassination of the President; who actively promote the annihilation of white people and couch their racism in some sense of reparations for the acts of white ancestors. As sick and evil as I viewed the Obama Administration for its actions in targeting conservative groups with the power of the IRS or the deaths of thousands of Mexicans during Fast and Furious, a planned, designed policy to let them die at the hands of drug dealers directly armed by the feds, I never even considered the answer to these acts would be assassination. Those are the thoughts of thugs and criminals, especially because they have used it. 
This is the error of civility. While the right has continued to pursue a civil discourse with what can only be considered a death cult of the left, civil rights have disappeared, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of association have all but been eradicated. It is a stupid, one-sided game encouraged by those on the right, who have actually aligned themselves with the left and use the concept of civility as bludgeon against their own side. It is an act of fratricide.  read the rest 

More from American Spectator:

Perhaps there is no better window on the awfulness of the self-appointed New York-to-DC ruling class than MSNBC’s Morning Joe. The show revolves around a collection of chattering-class bores who devote the start of their day to seconding each other’s shallow and smug criticisms of Trump. The women make faces; the men roll their eyes. 
Co-host Mika Brzezinski is a feminist who lectures other women on the need to show firmness in a man’s world. Yet she spends most of the show acting like a prim, entitled Victorian-era dingbat on a fainting couch. She grips her chair for balance while she makes faux-terrified faces, then turns to “Joe” for guidance on how to address this or that Trump “outrage.” “Joe” is the vainglorious former Congressman Joe Scarborough. The two are engaged, but one suspects the relationship won’t last Trump’s two terms. 
Scarborough resembles a beady-eyed frat boy whom one can more easily imagine bellowing over a keg than cracking open a serious book. Yet he casts himself as Trump’s moral and intellectual better. Trump, you see, lacks Joe’s “substance.” Read the rest

Feisty Italian Lady, Maria Bartiromo, Drives John Podesta's Blood Pressure to Stroke Level...

do not mess with Italian women.  Just don't.

Like a typical libtard he deflects, denies, and boils over with outrage.  He tries numerous times to turn the questions back to Maria.  She's not buying it.

That fool actually thought he was going to be interviewed by a powder puff.  He was wrong.
