Thank you for the heart....

The Rubiot of Marco Khyam

The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all your Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all your Tears wash out a Word of it.

Sorry Omar.....

A Bosnian Sniper,Tentatively identified as Tenzing Norgay...

...has admitted firing on Hillary Clinton as she stood in line at a Marine recruiting center....

There-if they wish to post lies I can't refute I'll laugh at near truths they can't respond to.

They write themselves...

Hillary Clinton Verified account ‏@HillaryClinton 18m18 minutes ago

“Do not grow weary doing good. Do not get discouraged. Do not give up.” —Hillary in Flint

James Michener-Hawaii "The missionaries came to Hawaii to do good and it appears they did very well..."

Jesus Christ!

If I hadn't seen this myself I wouldn't believe it. I won't even say what it is until I have a witness...


Is the MSNBC post debate coverage streaming anywhere?


At one point

Hillary was pissed and they agreed to give her 30 seconds...after her response seemed to go on too long I checked my clock and her 30 seconds went on another 95 seconds. So Chuck and Rachel either had no clock, or fucked up, or were biased. Which do you think?

Edit for spelling....

The Republican accused of the same crime

says it's nonsense too!

Stop calling it "Free College"

There is no such thing and the only people who push the term are republicans and people trying to smear Bernie. They talk about opposing "free college", but what they mean is they oppose free tuition for you. See, the colleges give free tuition to some elites-for instance high SAT scorers and top academic students and there is an easy argument that they most deserve a free education. But another group-elite athletes also get a free ride. Now you can argue that in fact it is they being used but ain't nobody will claim an all-american running back was spotted dropping off tuition checks...The rich and political elite-their offspring may actually be paid for but they are often slipped into legacy slots ahead of better students of lesser means...

So far this can all be dismissed as socialist whining, right? The college decides who gets scholarships and accepts cash from others to balance the books and life goes on, one more day in our great democracy...

Until you consider this-it ain't just tuition that balances the books-each and every year those schools get a minimum of 150 billion in socialistic, non-free market dollars poured in from federal and state governments. What has really been built is a large public school system that routinely charges only average middle class students tuition!!

And that is where the spin comes in. There is not a campus in this country that is a thing more than K-12 writ large. In a country that admits that an associates degree is an absolute bare minimum requirement to demonstrate entry level competence to jobs, anything LESS than a "Free" college education becomes one more subsidy to employers. Or failing that stop the 150 billion to colleges and distribute it to those previously priced out of the market and doomed to lower value lives by oligarchs more than willing to leave some behind. And the elite can go to the "colleges" that will exist without that funding.

There's my argument-public colleges and universities are just one more part of public education, both payed for and owed to all. Will it cost more when all are given the same benefits we bestow on the elites-yes. But either we are a democracy or not. Bernie isn't offering free college-he is endorsing full public education.

Sarah Palin is full of shit

About Track

"I guess it’s kind of the elephant in the room because my own family going through what we’re going through today with my son, a combat vet ... like so many others, they come back a bit different, they come back hardened," Palin said. "They come back wondering if there is that respect for what their fellow soldiers and airmen and every other member of the military so sacrificially have given to the country."

Without specifically mentioning the arrest, Palin said she was speaking “personally” when she described soldiers “who come home from the battlefield bringing new battles with them (and) coming back different than when they left for the war zone.”

Problem-and you can ask the real combat vets here-his DD-214 shows he was Infantry but never received a combat infantry badge (CIB). That badge is what you get for being shot at and he wasn't. But being a Palin I could think of a few other things that might "harden" him...
