In 30 years, when this country is a wasteland...

A radioactive, sun-scorched desert...

There will be people crawling on scabbed hands and knees through the shattered concrete and twisted, rusted steel of the ruins. They will be searching feebly for the last few remaining cans of tomato soup, Spam, and the last few gallons of gasoline in what used to be the continental United States.

And through cracked, bleeding lips, these people will be muttering repeatedly... very softly...

"lock her up... lock her up..."

Wow, the jokes are writing themselves today.

I've never literally laughed out loud at more posts by more DUers than I have today.

It feels good. Keep up the good work, folks.

Remember that there is nothing, NOTHING that pisses the Fanta Menace off more than being laughed at. It's the main reason for his eternal blood hatred for all things Barack Obama--because Obama gently ribbed him at the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

Hundreds of people who dined at an Ohio Chipotle restaurant say they’ve become sick after eating food there, according to the Delaware General Health District.

At least 683 patrons at Chipotle’s Powell location reported feeling ill, however the culprit of the illness remains unknown.

Stool-sample tests for Salmonella, E.Coli, Shigella and norovirus came back negative, according to the Ohio Department of Health.

The possible food-borne illness caused customers to experience symptoms including vomiting, nausea, headaches and abdominal pain that lasted for a few days. It appears to have affected patrons who visited the Mexican eatery between July 26 and July 29.

Let us remember Saman Gunan.

The Thai rescue diver who sacrificed his life laying out the initial oxygen tanks for that incredible rescue operation. The Heroes in Valhalla raise their cups to you, sir.

Has anyone watched "Turn: Washington's Spies" on AMC?

My wife and I are looking for a new series to binge watch on Netflix, and Malcolm Nance recommends this in his latest book. The reviews about it seem to be good overall, but I wanted to hear about it firsthand from DUers who've seen it.

"THESE are the times that try men's souls."

"The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated." 

Thomas Paine 
December 23, 1776


It's never been easy. It's not SUPPOSED to be easy. I won't be leaving this country, and I will stay and fight these bastards in any way that I can. This fight has been going on for centuries, and we are all called to it. It's up to you how you wish to respond.

Reality Winner, Accused National Security Agency Leaker, To Change Her Not Guilty Plea

Source: Huffington Post

Reality Winner, the former government contractor who allegedly leaked a classified document that proved Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, has reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors that will resolve her pending Espionage Act charge, though the details of the plea deal are unclear.

Federal court records show that Winner, who previously pleaded not guilty and has remained locked up ahead of her trial, is scheduled to appear at a change of plea hearing on Tuesday, a clear sign she’s reached a plea deal with Justice Department prosecutors.

Winner, 26, was a federal contractor with Pluribus International Corp. in Augusta, Georgia, when she was arrested last June on charges of violating the Espionage Act by “removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet,” a criminal complaint said at the time.

She is charged with one federal count of willful retention and transmission of national defense information and faces up to 10 years in prison. Her attorneys were not immediately available for comment.

The children are his hostages.

For his crazy freaking Wall.

And the children's treatment will get worse and worse, and the outrages will pile up higher and higher, until the Democrats relent and they finally give him the damn thing to make him stop.

And THEN what do you think he's going to do next?

In remembrance of D-Day...

The attack on the casino at Ouistreham from the movie The Longest Day (1962). An incredible battle scene.

Then may I suggest Harvest Gold or Avocado.

Has a retro '70s look that everyone is into these days.
