Overnight Open Thread (30 Jan 2016)

Ruling class blues.

I'll note that an integral part of Progressive mythology is the struggle. Despite being in charge for close to a century, Progressives still think of themselves as an insurgent minority at war with their oppressive overlords. Elizabeth Warren is worth millions, yet she spends her time in the Senate ranting about the one percent. Her neighbors in the one percent cheer her on. It's false consciousness.

Pay Gap

How about Hollywood and the White House lead by example on this pay gap BS. They won't. Just like they don't do things to lower their carbon footprint and have their bodyguards carry no guns. They just want you miserable while they live as they want.

Outrun a T-Rex?

Could you outrun a hungry Tyrannosaur? I don't know. If you believe Jurassic World, a woman in heels can outrun a T-Rex.

Bass Lines

Noisy Neighbors

God I hated living in an apartment complex, especially when they went and allowed section 8 folks in as they didn't give a shit about rules and such. Man gets revenge on noisy neighbors with an Arduino System that automatically blasts loud music back at them.

Refugee Ages

6' tall "unaccompanied minor" refugee in Sweden raises questions. Didn't we see the same thing last summer with the border crossers here?

In related news, this is what happens when your government fails to protect you and you continue to ignore the problem. 200 masked men in Stockholm station target and beat migrants after migrant youth gangs wreak havoc at station.

Snow News Bloopers

Bernie Sanders

If Bernie does not understand the issue with Hillary's emails, he's not fit for office. No Bernie, the State Department emails are not 'personal'; they are 'national'.


Journalists scared to criticize Trump. If only the GOPe had learned this a long time ago. Play tough with the media and they'll "watch their words" more carefully around you. Seriously though, whether it's Trump or someone other than the "D" candidate, the MSM will not be fearful and strike often with BS reports. They are more fearful of their own masters and what will happen if they do not do their bidding.

Spaceballs: The Schwartz Awakens

Oh yes. Mel Brooks' 'Spaceballs' sequel is a go.
