Is this how the DNC Ends?

Everybody spoke of the glass ceiling being broken...and in a fit of good will the flying monkeys squash the hopes and dreams of progs everywhere. (h/t Grunt)


It turns out that Debbie Wasserman Schultz was squashed like a bug on the alter of progressiveness for nothing...

We all thought that Hillary Rotten Clinton would take a victory lap on her broom, maybe demand that Dorothy surrender or something spectacular like that, but those thoughts were obviously premature.



Then there is the whole black gags matter crew who felt that the fix was in from the beginning. Welcome to the Democrat machine sunshine! Cash and power matter these days. I can't believe that the Oregon Delegation was shocked that the Democrat Party system was completely rigged from day-one. If Hillary can buy the FBI off (yes, YOU Director Comey), directing her flying monkeys to fix the nomination was no big thing.

The decision when it comes to an election could never be more clear, yet the mainstream media (a wholly owned subsidiary of the DNC) continues to shill for Hillary.

I get a kick out of the Russian hack of the DNC e-mail. So much for Hillary's reset with Russia.

In Search of the Red

    Because of the many posts at the Daily Timewaster, I decided to explore the world of redhead women with freckles and blue or green eyes. Only two percent of the population on Earth has that combination. The recessive gene that causes red hair, MC1R, is a genetic mutation, but I do not suggest that ginger hair'd people are "mutants".
    This blog post, is for you, CW.
    Scholars have debated the origins of red hair (and the gene that underpins it). According to some, the gene for red hair is inherent to the Celts, while others claim it to be a genetic trait specific to the Norsemen, being brought to the British Isles during the Viking Age.  A third category of historians and scientists agree on a common Celto-Germanic genetic trait, rather than a separate origin for the gene. This latter group would seem to be 'people pleasers' rather than 'nit pickers'.
    Red hair is the result of a recessive genetic trait which has been caused by a series of mutations in the melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R), a gene which is located on chromosome 16. Being a recessive genetic trait means that both parents must cary the gene in order for their children to be born red haired.  There are far many more carriers than people who are born with red hair.
    Did the Vikings bring the red hair gene to the British Isles?

    Professor Donna Heddle explained that the perception according to which the invading Viking raiders of the British Isles were blond is nothing more but a mere misconception. According to the same theory, the Norsemen were likely red headed. This may be true, at least in part. Not that many Viking warriors were naturally blond, indeed. In fact, blond hair was very much sought after in Viking Age Scandinavia and many Norsemen dyed their hair blond.
    On this note Professor Donna Heddle stated for The Scotsman: ‘The perception that the Norse were blond is nothing more than a prevalent myth. Genetically speaking, the chances of them having blond hair weren’t that likely. The chances are that they would have had red hair. Interestingly, if you look at where red hair occurs in the world you can almost map it to Viking trading routes.’ (map above)
    If we are to take a look at the areas in Ireland where the Norsemen settled, we can also see the highest concentration of red haired Irish people. The Viking warriors who settled coastal parts of both Scotland and Ireland were mainly of Norwegian descent (shortly followed by Danish Vikings as well).

    Norway may well be the actual place of origin for the red hair as the gene was successfully linked to the paternal Y-DNA haplogroup R1b-L21, which includes one of its subclades defined as R1b-M222 — one that is very common for both northwestern Ireland and Scotland.

    RED HAIR'D RAIDER

    A famous Norwegian Viking by the name Eiríkr Þorvaldsson (Erik Thorvaldsson),  born in the Jæren district of Rogaland, southern Norway in mid 10th century, subsequently became renowned as Erik the Red, because of the colour of his hair and beard. He is recounted in the Icelandic sagas as the first Norse settler in Greenland.
The consensus is that the Vikings own the red hair genetic mutation and distributed it far and wide in  their travels and raids, where those genes were spread in true berserker fashion.

Is Bernie Alienating his Base?

Sometimes when the progs are long winded, they end up alienating their potential voting base. In this case, the Bachelorette (reality TV show) was delayed, messing up the t-vo and other viewing of fans who now don't know who the Bachelorette will be dating next.

Those who feel that Sanders spoke too long fired back on Twitter. Some people claiming that Sanders engaged in micro-aggression, had to flee to their safe space.








Bernie Sanders ruined The Bachelorette just like he would have ruined America if he was the nominee


UGHHH F YOU BERNIE SANDERS. I can't watch the ending of the Bachelorette on my recording cause you were the first 30 min of it. 😡😡😡😡

THIRTY MINUTES OF THE BACHELORETTE WASNT RECORDED BECAUSE OF BERNIE SANDERS IM SO CONFLICTED AND UPSET

DNC (Drama Central)

This may be the new logo for the Hillary and Kaine Campaign!


PHILADELPHIA – Democrats tried to turn their attention Monday night from an email scandal that claimed their party chairwoman. It's now Hillary's pivot toward Trump as party elites try and refocus the hatred from Hillary Clinton (the unindicted), rampant corruption within the Democrat infrastructure and outright fraud from Debbie Wasserman.

The Democrat elites hope that the Sanders supporters will learn to love the Wall Street bankers who have unflinchingly backed Clinton and her foundation in an attempt to pay to play.

And the drama continues.

The only question any of us have is how gullible and stupid the Democrat's Party members really are.

And while all this is going on, the only sensible one among us is LSP who had embarked on an epic hunt for feral razorbacks.

Living off the Land

When I was in the US Navy we used to qualify with "Third World Weapons" every six months. I always looked forward to it. Usually we'd shoot at Camp Billy Machen in the Chocolate Mountains, near the Salton Sea in California.

AK-47
RPG-7
Dragunov

We shot AK-47's, RPG-7's, B-40's, Dragunov's, and a host of other Soviet Block/Chicom weapons, very common in the third world. We also shot the Swedish K (Karl Gustov SMG), M-1 Thompsons, M-3 Grease Guns, and so forth. We tossed foreign grenades and tinkered with mortar rounds and landmines. If you're saying that it sounds like fun, it was. The idea was to familiarize ourselves with firearms that we might pick up and need to use when we were in the field, outside of the USA.

While we could only carry a limited supply of ammunition, the 'enemy' wherever we were, had plenty of arms and ammo. One need only kill a few to liberate both arms and a nearly inexhaustible supply of ammunition.

Thus when Barack, Hillary and their friends discuss limiting offensive firearms to cadres that they trust rather than the public...it doesn't work like that in practice. Anyone with any training at all will by default find weapons being used by their well supplied adversaries and will use THOSE. While it's true that I'd prefer a Barrett .50 to a Dragunov, the Dragunov will do, as will the AK-47. If you take my point. 

Most guerrillas historically are armed with the weapons of their opponents, which are not all that difficult to come by...particularly if you're arming "inner city people" to disarm the public. I don't know where else the gene pool would come from to go carry out that task.

Disturbia

It's Sunday and I'm not saying that the end is near. I'm not a doom-sayer, but I'm concerned. I live in a rich part of a rich state in a rich country, but all around me there are cracks and signs of entropy. It's as if the party is over and we're once again sliding (2009 once again). It's dystopian and it's disturbing.

The owners of the small business in the strip malls have tigers by the tail. They're afraid to hold on and they're afraid to let go, so they eek by on depressingly small margins. Even the successful small businessmen are squeezed. What success we have was balanced on the back of TWENTY TRILLION DOLLARS in debt. That's what it took to keep the applecart upright. In California where I have a moderately successful consulting practice, the State, the Feds and hefty excise taxes take just about half of what I make. For every $1 earned, $.50 goes into the cookie jar to feed the beast. And they plan to raise taxes because they can't pay their bills on 1/2 of what I make. If they had all of what we collectively earn, my friends, they still couldn't balance the budget because that's how government works... or doesn't work.

The nation tossed $20 trillion down a rat hole 
and I didn't even get a t-shirt to show for it.

The only one in American politics who saw this was Donald Trump. (He wasn't in politics at the time - the politicians were doing just fine and clearly, they saw no problem, which is why Trump won the nomination.) It disturbed him then and a year later he is still disturbed.  Hillary Clinton and her mentor, Barack, are not disturbed at all because they live behind walls guarded by men with guns and only hang out in the finest places (much like Capitol City in the dystopian series, "The Hunger Games").  They peddle influence and they sell us all out. That's why the Clinton Foundation exists.

Are YOU ready for Hillary
It's true, inside the Washington DC Beltway, things are going along very well. The place is awash with money and government jobs are created as a sort of welfare for middle class minorities.

Meanwhile in the rust belt it's prozac for the middle class, Jack Daniels for the working poor and moonshine for the impoverished, who get by with "earned income credit" and the American black market of untaxed goods and services. It's the best that twenty trillion in borrowed money could do to keep the economy going. 

If the progs get their heart's desire, Hillary Clinton, the most corrupt politician in the history of the nation, will ascend to the White House, will stack the Supreme Court and it will eventually lead to some sort of serious revolutionary movement in America. Maybe not during her term, but it will come because it is inevitable. I don't know who will win or lose, but that's not even the point. By then we'll be forty trillion dollars in the hole with nothing to show for it.
