  • Happy Labor Day, 2018

    by coldwarrior ( 85 Comments › )
    Filed under Open thread at September 3rd, 2018 - 6:57 am

    And Labor is Happy! Lowest unemployment rate since 1969 and 2000.

    And then our elitist globalist/socialists allowed China into GATT and ratified NAFTA.

    ‘Those jobs aren’t coming back’- Obama

    ‘Trump will wreck the economy’ – nevertrumper elitists

    ‘DIE!!!! Middle America!!!’ – Editors of National Review

    Looks like our ‘betters’ in the GOP were on Obama’s side, huh?

    *I am 3 for 2 on college ball this week with one game to go, Miami burned me and revealed just how overrated they are, again. And Barbarian’s Berkley Bears stomped a mud-hole in the Tar-heels. Tonight’s game makes me look like a genius or a punter, but either way, not bad picks for week 1 with precious little info and lots of going against the spread. I bet a pretend $100 on each game and will keep a running tally to see if my betting outpaces my investments. That puts me up against Trump and his economics team. Starting fund value is $600. Please see prospectus for fees and disclaimers and full investing info 😉 *

    Walk your street
    And I’ll walk mine
    And should we meet
    Would you spare me some time?

    ‘Cause you should see my world, meet my kind
    Before you judge our minds

    Blue collar

    Sleep your sleep
    I’m awake and alive
    I keep late hours
    You’re nine to five

    So I would like you know I need the quiet hours
    To create in this world of mine

    Blue collar

    I’d like you to know at four in the morning
    Things are coming mine
    All I’ve seen, all I’ve done
    And those I hope to find

    I’d like to remind you at four in the morning, my world is very still
    The air is fresh under diamond skies
    Makes me glad to be alive

    You keep that beat
    And I keep time
    Your restless face
    Is no longer mine

    I rest my feet while the world’s in heat
    And I wish that you could do the same

    Blue collar
    Ah, blue collar

      From The Daily Caller:

      For union officials, political activism takes precedence over the priorities of the rank-and-file far too often. Its multi-billion dollar political machine – fed by union dues – enables Big Labor to wield immense clout in Washington, D.C., and state capitals, even though much of that money is spent on candidates and causes opposed by many of the workers union officials claim to represent.

      For union officials, their privileges pay off. After all, why bother with the hard work of representing employees as long as they are sitting on a forced-dues revenue stream guaranteed by a government-granted special power?

      If union membership, representation, and dues payment were strictly voluntary, union officials would have to earn workers’ support, and officials would need to be accountable and responsive to the rank-and-file or else face a loss of revenue. Instead, workers pay billions each year to union bosses simply because they would lose their jobs if they did not.

      Perhaps this Labor Day, union officials should take a step back and reexamine how reliant they are on government-granted compulsory powers…and how this causes millions of American workers to view them as out of touch with those they seek to “represent.”

      Watched Janine Pirro scorch Jeff Sessions last night. I think of her as Trumps leading punch in all thinks media. As in sometimes she is accurately reflecting a phone call she had with him. I can’t tell about Sessions. I think he is brittle and reactionary and not very creative or wise. The law is his blood and not much else. He’s a bureaucrat who dislikes the slimey side of politics. But I also read all this is an act. And he’s lining up democrats like bowling pins. He’s just not ready to bowl yet.

      I thought McCain was a great guy and voted for him. But think of him as mean and little now. No common touch. I still think GWB is great but too GOPe now. Lost his gravitas? I thought Pence was a bad choice for VP but think I am proven wrong there also. In all of this I think I trust Trump to hold the reins of the country. I would certainly support him in difficult decisions that I might disagree with.

      Well I have always thought we need a rock and roll law that excludes rockstars, televangelists, and DJs from the norms of drug and alcohol use. Give them all a get out of jail free card. Maybe require them to have a certain audience size before exempting them.

      The Canadian Postal Workers Union SPIT took time off their busy day to scream filthy Zionists last week. This was on a quiet residential street across the offices of B’nai Brith Canada. Not only was there no permit for this kind of activity, but they were trespassing on the front laws of Jewish houses. Given that this neighborhood still has Holocaust survivors, it must have been frightening to face another Hitler. There were Paeostinians with them, but they let their useful idiots hold up Palestinian flags & scream solidarity with the Paleostinian postal workers!!

      CUPE, a union with thousands of ‘public service’ workers all across Canada sponsored the Mavi Mamara ship that rammed through the Israeli blockade a while back. VIOLENCE ensued as planned and provoked. These and countless other actions through the years is due to THE LEADERSHIP
      and overpaid goons who have these jobs for life. They are corrupt & never accountable. I’m sure the people who actually work for a living
      have to pay dues and shut up around these commies or they could lose their jobs. Union leadership loves the Deep State. Is the Deep State.

      I don’t know if a cover song IS a cover most of the time. But one I do know – and you guys will think it’s schmaltzy, I don’t care.

      “I Will Always Love You”

      written by Dolly Parton

      Covered by Whitney Houston

      Before she started destroying herself, I could hear one note from her throat and everything would just stop

      ok, there’s this

      Dear Mrs. Harris:
      Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store.

      Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Harris, are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras:

      1. June 15: He took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people’s carts when they weren’t looking.

      2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

      3. July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women’s restroom.

      4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, ‘Code 3 in House wares. Get on it right away’. This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor, that in turn resulted in a union grievance which caused management to lose time and cost the company money. We don’t have a Code 3.

      5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M & M’s on layaway.

      6. August 14: Moved a ‘CAUTION – WET FLOOR’ sign to a carpeted area.

      7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers he’d invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department to which twenty children obliged.

      8. August 23: When a clerk asked if she could help him, he began crying and screamed, ‘Why can’t you people just leave me alone?’ Emergency Medical Services were called.

      9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

      10. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

      11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while, loudly humming the, ‘Mission Impossible’ theme.

      12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his ‘Madonna Look’ using different sizes of funnels.

      13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and, when people browsed through, yelled, ‘PICK ME! PICK ME!’

      14. October 22: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed, ’OH NO! IT’S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!’

      15. Took a box of condoms to the checkout clerk and asked, “where is the fitting room?”

      And, last, but not least:

      16. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile; then yelled very loudly, ‘Hey! 7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers he’d invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department to which twenty children obliged.

      One of the clerks passed out.

      Armstrong’s careful analysis of Mueller’s tactics.

      Mueller has conspired with others in the Deep State to take down Donald Trump as President. The way they do that is, in fact, to prosecute absolutely everyone around him to compel them to give false evidence against an individual. That is the standard operating procedure in how criminal cases are brought.

      The talk behind the curtain is that Mueller will not only target all of Trump’s companies to try to destroy his empire and pass info to the Southern District of New York to bring charges as he did with Michael Cohen, but he will most likely indict Trump’s eldest son for even meeting with the Russians at Trump Tower. That meeting was to brief Trump’s son on the Magnitsky Act and that it was a cover-up for the US attempt to take over Russia and control the 2000 elections. This was the Bank of New York case, blackmailing Yeltsin, who then turned to Putin for help in return for making him the head of Russia. This is what Putin requested to interrogate in the USA in return for Mueller to interrogate Russians. The USA has rejected to allow Putin to question any American official.

      Another of Trump’s friends, Roger Stone, has also gone public stating he expects Mueller to try to indict him in order to testify against Trump.

      Oops. Missed how to STOP Mueller.

      Another of Trump’s friends, Roger Stone, has also gone public stating he expects Mueller to try to indict him in order to testify against Trump. The only way to stop him is to go to the Supreme Court to seek a mandamus to confine his jurisdiction to the purpose of investigating ties to Russia and stop prosecuting everyone who knows Trump for anything he can possibly charge them with. Mueller is acting way beyond the authority of his appointment yet if Trump fires him, the Democrats will call it obstruction of justice. It is time to go to the Supreme Court!!!!!

      So….at least I didn’t have to cry in my Coors Light over the Golden Bears….but seriously, they still look like crap. *Sigh* So many cupcake games this weekend.

      Did the McCain Democrat lovefest get the kind of ratings that the McCains thought it would get. Because I had absolutely NO interest in watching it.

      Best line: Dragging around the dead body of a RINO for a week is the only way Dems can get people to attend their rallies

      Rahm Emmanuel should be running for this LIFE at this point.

      From ‘American Betrayal’ by Diana West

      ‘Orders issued 1 January 1943

      The President has dictated that ‘airplanes be delivered in accordance with protocol schedules be the most expeditious means’. To implement these directives, the modification, equipment and movement of Russian planes have been given first priority, even over planes for US Army Air Forces.

      Interesting to think that perhaps the CIA bugged the 2013 Papal Conclave as well as keeping tabs on all of the illegal plotting of the Sant Gallan Group of socialist swamp dwellers from Germany and the Low countries. Pope Francis thought he was a big time Peronist political kingpin but he’s still wearing his little boy shorts when it comes to world bloodsport politics.

      Cardinal Pell from Australia began to uncover all of the dirty money shenanigans when he was appointed to audit the Vatican Bank. Couldn’t have that, so Pell was framed by his political enemies within the Australian Victorian socialist (Masonic)state government. The swamp extends even to Oz folks! It appears that millions from Peter’s Pence, used as charitable finance for the poor, ended up in Hillary Clinton’s 2016 financial war chest. Watch out for Cardinal Parolin. A true viper if there ever was one, and a major player in the Vatical branch of the swamp.

      Hey! I’m a traditional Catholic and even I can smell the stink from here! Give us back our Church!

      What’s John Kyle’s pedigree? RINO? Covert RINO wearing a happy face untill he gets elected? Or is he actually a traditional conservative? One needs to be careful as there are a lot of folks hiding their real intentions under a bodyguard of lies.

      Well…..

      Yes, I know it is perfectly legal for an employer to monitor an employee’s work email account.

      I discovered by accident that EVERY email I send was also being sent to a secret email address. The owner of the company.

      So…. Going to give him some VERY interesting reading in the next few weeks.

      Going to set up a Gmail account and talk to myself all day.

      @ lobo91:

      you’d be surprised how common that is. I just assume ALL of them are.

      Before the internet, when you had to physically attend hearings to know what was going on instead of depending on 60 second news briefs, you could hire people to stand in line for you and hold a place. There were organizations you could hire who had people, usually students, who would stay there overnite. For hearings that you knew would be crowded/over-filled, they were lifesavers. We used to hire them all the time. Early morning hearings were a drag, I’d get there at 8 am or something and these poor kids in sleeping bags and backpacks filled with Doritos…

      Then 9/11 stopped it completely. Nobody gets to camp out in the Russell Senate office hallways overnight anymore.

      So, yeah, hired protesters are par for the course. It’s all theater. If the news orgs had half a brain, they’d figure out they keep seeing the same people over and over and start interviewing.

      He served 3 terms as senator from Arizona. IIRC, he left the senate because he chose to retire, not because he was defeated. AZ Federalist can probably tell you more.My impression of him is ‘moderate’, I don’t remember any controversy around him.

      As someone who has taken every opportunity to point out that Bob Woodward is a liar, I’m loving the release of his new book on the Trump White House.

      Every – EVERY – source is anonymous.

      Somebody, “Mr. A”, told Woodward, that somebody, “Mr B”, said he heard John Kelly call Trump an ‘idiot’.

      Follow this.

      Woodward to Mr. A: Tell me what you know about the Trump White House.

      Mr A. to Woodward: Well, Mr. B. said he heard John Kelly call him an idiot.

      Woodward writes: John Kelly called Trump an idiot.

      Ben Bradlee would have thrown Woodward’s ass onto the Metro tracks

      John Kelly has, of course, called Woodward’s story a lie.

      Woodward did the exact same thing with Mattis.

      Woodward thinks he’s bullet proof. They say you never hear the one that gets you.

      Dianne Feinstein: More People Will Die in Mass Shootings if Brett Kavanaugh Gets Confirmed

      During day one of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) accused him of being beyond “pro-gun” and suggested more people will die in mass shootings if he is confirmed.

      ABC News tweeted video of Feinstein addressing Kavanaugh, saying, “The president that nominated you has said, ‘I will nominate someone… pro-gun.’ We believe what he said.”

      Feinstein added, “It’s pretty clear that your views go way beyond simply being ‘pro-gun.’” Huff Post then noted that Feinstein suggested a confirmation of Kavanaugh will mark an end to “assault weapons” bans, as she claimed he would hold AR-15 and similar rifles as constitutionally protected.

      Did yinz know that one of Kavanaugh’s former clerks was sitting behind him giving white power signals? Yeppers. I don’t know what the signals meant, but you can watch for yourself

      Kavanaugh’s former law clerk Zina Bash is flashing a white power sign behind him during his Senate confirmation hearing. They literally want to bring white supremacy to the Supreme Court. What a national outrage and a disgrace to the rule of law.

      https://hotair.com/archives/2018/09/04/new-resistance-theory-trump-staffer-giving-white-supremacist-hand-signals-behind-kavanaugh-today/

      Actually, no, her name is Zana Bash, she’s well known around court circles, her heritage is Mexican/Jew.

      NEXT!

      @ eaglesoars:
      Just sitting my verandah watching about 300 seabirds hunting a massive ball of bait fish. Birds begin their dive from 50 ‘ and at about 10 ‘ they go spearlike and hit the water at an amazing rate. Around 10 birds are hitting the water every second. You can follow where the bait fish ball is. by watching the birds circling pattern moving slowly North.

      Now the bait ball has split into two. One moving North and the other moving South. The North bird flock is now only 100 feet offshore and directly in front of me. I guarantee that there are some BIG snapper feeding on the baitfish ball from beneath and sharks beneath those fish.

      Wonderful

      🙂

      I snorkeled thru one of those once. I didn’t know what it was except a whole lot of beautiful fish. But our guide insisted we get out of the water ASAP. Back on the boat, she said ‘bait fish’. Girl genius here said “So?”.

      “You wanna be bait?”

      He retired when Mrs. Federalist was active in the AZ Republican Party. She has a favorable impression of him. He is not Tea Party, but he is also not Maverick RINO either. All in all, this was a wise choice by Ducy. More than likely Kyle won’t run for re-election and he is a middle of the road selection, won’t offend Constitutionalists nor establishment. Let the voters decide in the next primaries in 2020 who should fill the seat.

      Gee, she says that like it’s a bad thing. Imagine that, a Supreme Court Justice who actually follows what the Constitution clearly says. Yep, that’s radical alright.

      If they can also get rid of the unarmed victim/criminal free-fire “gun-free” zones, I predict that mass shootings will decrease.
