Headline at Not-Very-Breitbart today.....

"TIMELINE: GOWDY COMMITTEE VERIFIES HILLARY CLINTON’S BENGHAZI COVER UP"

I got nothing ... nothing. I'm just sitting here stunned.

Anybody listened to AM hate radio recently..?

Got a new truck and was fiddling with the radio. Clicked onto AM mode and got about a minute of Medved. I lasted a minute because I was so gobsmacked by the shit he was saying. And he's relatively sane, compared to the stuff I read than Han-nutty and Limbaugh say.

Apparently Medved missed the Republican-dominated committee report that exonerated the State Dept and Hillary on Benghazi.

And Bill Clinton is at fault for the 9-11 attacks.

Jesus H Christ on a rubber crutch...

There are areas of this country where you can only get RW radio on the AM dial. No wonder people are fucked up.

When the Dems win the WH again....

... and make big gains in the Congress...

I say when.. not if...

What are people like this going to do?

(From the comments on a Kitsap Sun (WA) article about a guy open carrying on a city street. ALL the comments are RW, and supportive of Rambo Jr. pictured below)

"We will take our country back from extremists, as soon as the next Presidential elections and the current occupant of the White House vacates the premises. The Nation has had it up to their eyebrows with the "extremists" who have hi-jacked society for the past 7 years. Thank the Lord, only one more year remains before the Country is re-claimed and the healing can begin."

Rachel Maddow tonight....

Rachel was quoting some amazing state about what the Repubs believe... Obama born in another country... Cruz born in this country... wild and crazy shit.

I was installing my dishwasher and missed the source of those stats.

Anybody hear where she got that stuff?

Interesting fact...

Only about a third of American households have a gun - or guns - in the house.

Shows you the power of lobbying. And money.

Interesting stuff here:

Post on Facebook seems bullshit...

... mostly because the guy is a Teabagger. He says Home Depot doesn't give veteran's discounts.

Anybody got any scoop on this one? Both Lowe's and Home Depot say:“We offer a 10 percent discount, up to a $500 maximum, to all active, reserve, retired or disabled veterans and their family members with a valid military ID.
All other military veterans qualify for a 10 percent discount during Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Independence Day.”

Lowe's policy is about the same.

Both apparently want DD214 or equivalent, or military ID for current and retired military, or disabled vet ID's.

The FB post...."David Carleton
So I am at Home Depot today and the older gentleman in front of me shows his ID for a veterans discount. The clerk tells him he does not qualify for a discount so the gentleman asked to see a manager. They ask me to go to another line because this may take a few minutes. I tell them no thanks I want to hear this.
So a young cocky full of himself moron comes to talk to the gentleman and says no you do not qualify. The gentleman tells him he has always gotten a discount there. So the moron says well we have told our people to tighten the rules and we only give what corporate requires we give and you do not qualify. The gentleman says he will then take his business elsewhere. The young moron replies that is your choice. The gentleman starts to leave and I step in.
I tell the moron if one of your idiot friends walked through the door right now you would have the option of giving him a discount and with your attitude you would do it. So step over to the register and give this guy his discount. He says he does not qualify for it.
So I tell him look here is how this is going to work. Either you give this guy a discount and I call Home Depot corp and tell them how good of a manager you are in spite of the stupid policy.
Or I go home call Home Depot corp tell them I stupid the policy is and their manager is a moron, then I blast face book and it goes viral and you get to be the moron you are.
I think you know which one he chose!
So people please blast Facebook with this story.

Anybody know if Marine recruiters have weapons in their duty station? ...

Does anybody have the "duty".. you know, pistol and belt?

I realize that the recruiters in Chattanooga Freakin' Tennessee aren't exactly in combat, but I remember having the "duty"... belt and pistol and all... in some fairly secure places.

Anybody have any info?

From the Duffleblog... military version of the Onion...

I love the Duffleblog, but I confess I was a little confused by the title of this one for a minute.

Then I remembered that there are 10 US military bases named after Confederate generals.

"A Department of Defense spokesman announced this week that the Army will be reactivating the 23rd Americal Division, most famous for its role in the Vietnam War. The division will be stationed at Fort Ho Chi Minh, currently under construction near Jackson, Miss.

The name of the post has sparked some controversy with Vietnam veterans and those who lost loved ones during that conflict, however Pentagon officials pointed out that the name follows the time-honored Army tradition of naming its military installations after enemies of the nation."

Why not a US base named after Uncle Ho...? he was a brave and resourceful foe. Or maybe a Naval Base in Hawaii named after Japanese Admiral Yamamoto...? Again, brave, brilliant tactician... he sure caught us with our pants down at Pearl.

Kinda like Lee or Benning....

Civil War and slavery...

I know Fox is pumping their listeners full of shit about the Civil War....."It wasn't about slavery!"

Bullshit!

From the Confederates themselves....
"There is not a respectable system of civilization known to history whose foundations were not laid in the institution of domestic slavery."
"Democratic liberty exists solely because we have slaves . . . freedom is not possible without slavery." (ed. note.... you gotta be shitting me!)
"We regard every man in our midst an enemy to the institutions of the South, who does not boldly declare that he believes African slavery to be a social, moral, and political blessing."
"African slavery is the corner-stone of the industrial, social, and political fabric of the South; and whatever wars against it, wars against her very existence. Strike down the institution of African slavery and you reduce the South to depopulation and barbarism."
"The extension of slavery is the vital point of the whole controversy between the North and the South...Amendments to the federal constitution are urged by some as a panacea for all the ills that beset us. That instrument is amply sufficient as it now stands, for the protection of Southern rights, if it was only enforced. The South wants practical evidence of good faith from the North, not mere paper agreements and compromises. They believe slavery a sin, we do not, and there lies the trouble."

...and on and on...

Any good Irish jokes about the gay marriage vote...?

You know.... "Two gay guys walk into an Irish pub and...."

I have Irish Catholic friends, and I'd like to share with them.
