Super Bowl 50 ads…

If you aren’t going to watch the Super Bowl,  or if you simply want to see all the ads at once,  go here.

For the politically correct,  be assured that the ads display the proper diversity.

Appropriate away!

leave a comment »

I haven’t been on any college campuses lately,  and most of the youngsters I know haven’t completely fallen down the  cultural appropriation  rabbit hole,  but a couple have stuck their toes in the water.   I wondered if this could explain why the most strident feminists never have a word to say about how Islam treats women,  but then I realized they’re just too afraid of the potential consequences of exercising free speech if there’s a jihadist or two around.

I have ultimately decided it is just another way of finding something stupid to complain about and to scold others for,  another point for use in controlling the behavior of others,  which is the true ultimate goal of leftists.   I am happy i have the opportunity to appropriate whatever parts of others’ cultures which suit me,  or taste good,  or look beautiful or  are interesting.

World-class jerk…

leave a comment »

Remember Martin Shkreli,  the pharmaceutical CEO who jacked up the price of a drug used to treat infections in HIV patients?  He was called to testify before Congress,  and did an excellent job  of cementing  his well-earned reputation as a world-class jerk.   I can’t imagine his performance will help him in his trial for fraud charges relating to the hedge fund he managed.

God bless America, indeed…

with 3 comments

This is a brilliant response to the jackasses of the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF),  which made Pittsburg,  Kansas,  its latest target after an “unnamed resident” complained about a “God Bless America” sign hanging at the local post office.   Yes, the sign was removed,  but more than 1,500 of them are  now displayed  on private property in the town.

Hillary win?

with 2 comments

Hillary won six of  six coin tosses  to be declared the Iowa caucus winner by  a whopping  .02%.   Has she been  this lucky  since making a killing in the cattle futures market?   Will we see the rise of  truth flippers?   The odds of this good luck are 1 in 64,  which unsurprisingly has led  to claims  of fraud and the  alienation  of Bernie’s supporters.   Even the Des Moines Register is  calling for  an audit.,  and Mark Steyn agrees that the stench  isn’t from  ethanol.

The Clinton camp was so afraid she  wouldn’t win  that she came out and gave a sort of  victory speech,  and hurriedly  moved on  to New Hampshire.   Jonah Goldberg describes that the way of counting determines who  is declared  a winner.   Is it a coincidence that the Iowa Democratic leader who refuses to release the raw vote totals has a license plate reading  “HRC 2016”?   Is it also a coincidence that in one precinct a delegate  was shifted  from Bernie to Hillary?

UPDATE:  More  strange things  in Iowa…

UPDATE:  And  still more

Ghost fares…

leave a comment »

As Japan nears the fifth anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami that struck coastal towns in the northeast,  taxi drivers in the area are reporting  ghost passengers,  fares who appear to be real,  and even speak,  then vanish.   Others are also reporting some rather ghastly spectral sights,  which isn’t surprising with a death toll of more than 15,000 and over 2,000 still reported as missing.

Iowa caucus…

with one comment

National review has a  two-minute  analysis of the Iowa caucus results.  For a more in-depth look,  read this.

To me,  the most interesting thing is that 60% of white Republicans in Iowa  voted for  a black man and two Hispanics.   How can that be when Republicans are racists?
