    I doubt that Josh will be able to find ANY position in the Trump Administration. Pretzels and Knots aren’t “in” any more.

  • Southpaw

    The little-noticed rider stapled to the back of the petition for California to leave the union is Massachusetts is getting thrown out, too. Someone must warn the Red Sox.

        • JTC

          Be sure to click that box that says “show counties”, and watch all those sad blue states turn beautiful red.

        • Iconoclast

          Pack the San Andreas with HE, designate Beacon Hill, Manhattan, “the Magnificent Mile, the National Mall, Portland’s Steel Bridge and the intersection of Interstate 5 with I-90 West as ‘Ground Zero’ targets for ricin testing …. Shake well, then fire …. The result would be a twenty point jump in average intelligence and a minimum 50% decline in neurotic disorders, both measurements derived from a sample of the entire nation.

        • RegT

          Very true. Most of us who live(d) in Far-Northern California (Siskiyou County, the largest – and least populated) are (were in my case) conservative. The Sheriff went public with telling the Feds his department would not enforce any new gun laws. I’m hoping he told his state legislators, too, since they recently passed some really oppressive gun laws, but I haven’t followed up on that.

          • RegT

            Correction – sounds like I was saying I am no longer conservative πŸ˜‰ Meant I was no longer living there. Still conservative, but in Montana now, in the mountains, far from the madding crowd.

        • Hardball

          My Oregon is ruled by the multitude of libs in PDX and some in Eugene. The rest of us are pretty darn OK by me.

        • PaulS

          So while the extent of Hitlary’s popular vote margin is 1,326,481 , I can account for that margin in less than 2 Kalifornia Counties. Hell, one (Los Angeles) had 1,273,485 margin alone.
          Holy Crap! We could just drop that into the ocean and call it good. She won CA by 3.4M, so that 1.3M across the country doesn’t look like anything at all.

      • Delilah T.

        No, it is not the answer. Running away from it is never the answer. There are too many people who do not live in coastal areas where the population of libbies is densest, and that includes the state of New York. NYC is leftist. New York State is not, despite it idjit governor. Is your intent to abandon those who do NOT want to secede from the US, just because the spoiled snots in SanFran, NYC, etc., shout louder? I know people in Oregon and Washington who despise the whack jobs in Seattle and Portland.
        Why not instead, turn those cities into city states, with no connection to the rest of the state?
        Why not make Chicago/Cook County a city-state, and the rest of the state a separate entity? Down-staters seldom get their voices heard in Springfield because of the monster Madigan, who thinks he owns the whole state. Even the newspapers are turning against him! (gasp!)

        Running away from it is NEVER the solution.

        • Calvin

          It only took a third of the colonists to fight the revolution. A third of the people in either California or Massachusetts could put this little revolt away. There is very little support outside the cities and once you get in the field it is very difficult to find vegan and tofu.

        • RegT

          Good luck on ever changing things in California as long as the cities are allowed to dominate politics. Same thing happened in Oregon when I moved there from Northern Californica. Ended up in Montana, where the liberals who moved here from LA, SF, Portland and Seattle have packed our larger towns (can’t really qualify as cities) and have been responsible for Democratic slime like Tester and (formerly) Baucus. BUT, we’ve got good people like Gary Marbut, head of the Montana Shooting Sports Association who is skilled at getting good gun laws through the legislature, and he has gotten a large number of them past our progressive dirt-bag of a governor (Bullock). We don’t yet have Constitutional Carry (legislature passed it, Bullock vetoed it), but it is legal to carry without a permit everywhere except in the towns and “cities”.

        • Kafiroon

          If the electricity was “shut off” to the large Demdumb cities, then everyone around them would have to deal with the fleeing rats. Too bad people have to support the rats that hate and rule over them.
          Progs are the disease that show we have things too easy.

        • markm

          I agree about splitting Chicago from Illinois, and the same for many other large cities. If a metropolitan area is more than 5 million population, more than 40% of the state population (voters), and less than 10% of the state by area, it should be split off as a city-state, assuming the voters of at least one of the proposed new states approve.

          And states should regain the right to secede or to join a neighboring nation, by a 2/3 popular vote. E.g., as a small-town Michigander, I’d be happy with the Detroit-Flint area either being a separate state or becoming Canadian.

          If I was the temporary dictator of North America, I’d create somewhere between 15 and 40 city-states like that, and in some areas I’d go considerably further. Detroit, Flint, and Ann Arbor would join southern Ontario. Northern Ontario would be joined to Michigan, maybe with a strip to also give Minnesota access to Hudson’s bay. Western Canada would vote on whether they wanted to be a separate nation (Greater Columbia?), join the USA, or remain in Canada (with transit rights across the new American territory in a corridor including the major highways and railroads north of Lake Superior). California would be reduced to west of the coastal range and from the Mexican border to 50 miles north of San Francisco – with the possibility of part of this becoming Mexican later. Sacramento and the rural counties would have the option of forming a new state or joining the bordering states.

        • Old Codger

          How a county-by-county plebiscite and the secessionist counties secede while the others counties form a new state and apply for admission to the new union?

      • Bill

        As former Governor Rick Perry put it, audios, mofos.

        • Old Codger

          Ah, Bill? It’s “adios”. No “u” in it.

      • No thank you.

        It’s going to be tough enough to unseat the Liberals here. Don’t need your trash too.

        This gov’t just approved expanded pipe lines from Alberta to the west coast and are now facing the whiners who voted them in figuring they would halt all the oil stuff. Seems someone in that group understands something of economics and reality. Not much, but something.

        • WayneM

          Yup, Canada is already at it’s load-limit of left-wing barking moonbats, regressive SJWs and raving feminazis. You guys are stuck with Cali and Mass.

        • Delilah T.

          Awww, Grumps, are you saying that the lefterd moonbats misunderstood the REAL intentions of politicians? And that cash in the cash drawer counts higher in your government than pleasing the proggies?

          Yeah, that’s why Trump got voted in and shrillary didn’t. Oh! On the afternoon news: the Michigan recount is being halted by the Michigan court system on the grounds that Stein does not have a leg to stand on: meaning not enough votes, and will not get enough in a recount to give her a lead.

          So, you see, reality is raising its head and grinning widely.

    • Don’t worry, California will never secede from the union. Democrats won’t allow it, they need the votes.

  • Kafiroon

    The stock market is up again for how many days in a row? How high?
    What country is the worlds biggest market for China? Anybody? Bueller?

    • Delilah T.

      Yes, went over 19,000 today. There’s a new process for extracting US oil that may replace frakking, safer, too. OPECkers are having trouble because prices won’t bump back up. Poor things. Anyone besides me remember gas at $.75/gallon?

      • Iconoclast

        I’ll call your $0.75 and note the $0.11 / gal I paid in Petersburg, VA circa 1970 during a ‘gas war’ of the old style! πŸ˜‰
        ———-
        PUCK OFEC !!!

        • Delilah T.

          Ah! Gas wars! I remember it well! $5.00 would fill my dad’s 1961 Impala’s 20 gallon tank.

      • RegT

        Gas fwas selling everywhere for 21 cents a gallon when I started driving. When it went up to 75 cents, we thought the collapse of western civilization and the end of the world had come.

      • Old Codger

        I never paid $.11/gal but I remember gas wars where a buk got me 5 gallons of gas. Hell! I remember my dad driving up to a “filling station” (that was what I heard it called then) and telling the attendant “give me a dollar’s worth of regular.”

        I also remember in ’73 when gas “shot up” to $.75/gal and everyone was buying locking gas caps because people were siphoning gas out of unsecured tanks. Unless I am much mistaken, now days when gas gets below $2/gal, most of what we’re paying is federal tax originally instituted “to encourage us to use less gas”. Consumption taxes and the 55mph speed limit. Ah! Social engineering at its finest.

        • Delilah T.

          Locking gas caps – the Arab Oil Embargo – Nixon’s idiot attempt to ration gas! Oh, man, I remember that, too!

          There was gossip that gas might actually rise to – wait for it! – $1.00/gallon for regular. Can you imagine?!?!?

      • Christopher Cole

        I am old enough to remember gas at $0.25 a gallon.

      • PaulS

        I recall the first time gas went over a dollar, and the pumps were set up at half the price, and thinking the displayed price was in recent memory. RIH Carter!

        That said, I have put gas in my 2000 Tundra for under $1 and over $4. Go figure.

      • Pamela

        I remember filling up my 1965 T-Bird for $5.00 a tank.
        I also remember replacing the radiator and fan, water pump, brakes, power steering pump and the electric window riders.

  • KenH

    I don’t see YOU getting any job offers either, BITCH
    And sucking your own dick, AINT a job

    • Th3o

      Still wish we had up keys.

      • Yeah! Obumbles can pull thirty inches of mercury on an onion sack.

    • But sucking Michelle’s is a job.
      And we all know that Obama sucks.

    • Bill G

      Yeah, the U.N. didn’t hold the Secretary-General’s office open for him.
      Poor little cupcake, how will he be able to handle their rejection?

      • JTC

        I really wish they had…that would have made Amerexit from it more immediate and the total collapse of it more imminent.

  • Chris Muir

    Ken’s kinda rude, but there’s always a rude truth in what he says.;)

  • Delilah T.

    It’s a long time coming, and I’ve said it before, the far left side of the fence is losing its hold on the political pendulum. Europe – Italy, France, Austria, UK, etc. – all saying essentially: Das ist genauf!!!!

    http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2016/12/the_center_is_not_holding.html

    We more moderate people who have seen through the lies, the displaced anger, the disinformation, etc., will find the fog to be clearing, whether the Leftwumps like it or not. They’ve had more than 8 years of trying to boil Reality out of existence and have only succeeded in getting themselves burnt. Read this article: Europe is slowly moving toward the right. I hope it does not go too far to the right and become the very thing THEY accuse US of being, when we are not that.

    http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2016/12/the_center_is_not_holding.html

    The ‘center’ hasn’t been holding for a while. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. We are going to face more shocks for a while, so be prepared to ride it out. Stay alert!

    I”m not sure about this, so it’s just my opinion, but socialism seems to have hit its last stride, has stumbled, fell and can’t get up. Socialism and caring about other people are not the same thing. Socialism does NOT care about others. It cares only about itself.

    Sorry if I got too preachy, it’s just me rattling on.

    • Delilah T.

      Oh, nuts, dropped in the same link twice. My bad. Sorry, CM!

  • LifeofTheMind

    It is kinda cute when they get bitchy at each other. Trump will have to scrub the White House down with bleach and replace ALL the bedding.

    • MasterDiver

      No, they’re going to have to use ethylene oxide. This is a MAJOR decontamination project!

      Zar Belk!

    • Nom dePlume

      re. The White House,, how many bugs are in that place? V. Sheymov’s Tower of Secrets” showed what the Chinese did to the E. Germans don’t you know. BTW with some of the silly fussing by the press because they are losing their power to “contextualize” (i.e. “spin”, i.e. lie) maybe it is the WH press corpse.

      • LifeofTheMind

        This is a very valid point. In one of his Smiley novels John le CarrΓ© had the walls being torn out of Circus HQ as they searched for microphones planted by the traitor Bill Haydon. One character surveys the damage and says, “Had the Irish over for tea?” Bugs will be much harder to detect now.

      • NotYetInACamp

        Expect prrogressves and Democrats to have the place bugged to hear future conversations.
        At least two debuggings are needed.

    Chris there was a Planned Parenthood ad on your left side for a few minutes when I opened the site. Now replaced with B+H photo ad. IS Google controlling your site ads?

    One thing I do know is that all the school kids will finally get some food in their stomachs that isn’t under/over cooked, moldy or out of date.

    • RegT

      AND be allowed to eat what they brought from home.

  • JTC

    It’s only 11:20 P.M. here in the fla right now, but this is Wednesday’s ‘toon dated 12/7 and I’m going to bed, so…

    Remember Pearl y’all, and thank a WWII vet before they’re all gone.

    Along about 1963 or ’64 I’d have been nine or ten, attending a tiny elementary school by Lake Okeechobee, with a tiny library where I guess I read most of the books they had. The two I will always remember were about boys like me; “A Boy And His Gun” by Janes, and “We Were There At Pearl Harbor”. ABAHG shaped my attitude, my politics, and my career. WWTAPH informed my understanding of life and history and appreciation for being an American. And both of them did it in such a way as to enthrall and interest my young mind and make me remember the them and their deeply intertwined lessons to this day…yes indeed through those books I was there at Pearl.

    Gettin’ weepy here. Anyway, thank you men.

    • NotYetInACamp

      All of the survivors of Pearl Harbor that I knew are now dead.
      I have thanked a few WW2 veterans and talked with them in the last month. they are not around like they used to be. I spoke with a Korean War vet yesterday.

      I went to a different school for high school as I had read both the grade school and high school library by 7th grade.
      Reading is fundamental to much development.
      Progressives brainwash and train. That is not the same as education.

      So those books added to your good education.

  • Shonkin

    I think you mean “flack,” i.e., presstitute. Flak is what AA fragmentation shells deliver. (Derned spell-checkers…)

    • Norm

      Flak is a German abbreviation for “Flieger abwher Kanonen”. Flyer against cannons or anti-aircraft guns.

    • JTC

      If you note the ‘toon title as well as the usage in the ‘toon itself, you will see that Chris knew exactly what he was doing with the homophones. Always appreciated by a werd nerd like me. πŸ™‚

    • Wow. That was fun to watch!

      • Bill G

        Oh, yeah! But none of those would be quick to get into action.

        • PaulS

          If you are in a “quick draw” situation, you weren’t paying attention. And although we practice for such a contingency, it has to be subordinate to the reaction of “get out of the way”. Not to mention the attacker might well be stunned to inaction when she pulls up on her skirt or shirt.
          We sure that’s not a man? πŸ˜‰

    Pearl Harbor 75 years ago.

    Young entitled Brats, don`t know or care that their whole way of
    life is because of “The Greatest Generation”.

  • Nom dePlume

    Trump = the Bobby Fischer of politics?
    Whether or not, Fischer is what’s in the nightmares of nightmares such as Putin because, you know, it did happen once, it could happen again, someone or something completely outside their careful machinations. This goes for the Chinese (who pride themselves on this bullshit too) as well as the Russkies. “Charlie Wilson’s War” is in the genre although it leaves out the regular Reagan/Tip O’Neill meetings, but that was two Irish getting together.

  • PaulS

    JTC, I purposely didn’t follow your link yesterday (on your warning), but then you quoted huffpo and that made me puke a little, dang it!

    Side note: Why did they mention “pussy bow” for Melania, but not Moochelle? (anatomical differences?)

    • NotYetInACamp

      Not having read that article, but, commenting anyway. πŸ™‚ balls

      Melania Trump wore a dress to the debate right after the TV “celebrity” baby Bush nephew Bushy Bush and his edited tape of trump discussing pussy was aired. The bow on that dress is commonly called a pussy bow in the fashion industry. I call that as an intention insult to those who were attacking her man. The dress looked great on her. She was a fashion model, as both a sister of mine was and niece is.

      • PaulS

        Thanks for that, but apologies, if I have to es’plain my attempt at humor there, it must not have been as good as I thought.

  • Jess Sain

    Bitterness, it’s all the left ever had. Watching them lose their minds and their world is turning out to be the best Christmas present ever. I fully expect Emperor Puppethead to become more childish and lash out as Trump’s 100 days Trumps Barry’s house of cards.

    • John

      I hope this is the beginning of a trend.
      The MSM now recognizes (at least the intelligent ones) that the price to be paid for their half-truths (and whole lies) was the trust of the public.
      And they’ve got a whole lot of hard work ahead of them if they ever hope to earn that trust back.
      I’d love to see the return of investigative reporting and honest opinion presentation, but we’ll have to wait and see.

  • Old Codger

    CNN = Clearly Not News

  • NotYetInACamp

    One is over the target when the flak is heaviest.

  • Delilah T.

    This is pure irony. WaPo now has an article reporting that the Pentagon has hidden $125 million in wasteful spending during the Obadman admin, which was money that could have gone into paychecks and benefits for military personnel.
    I know: it sounds like a Twilight Zone episode, but sometimes the Light of Reality dawns again. And it’s YOUR tax money, boys and girls. Maybe – just maybe – things will get better.

    • Pamela

      Pisses me off no end. I was required to stay within budget on all of my projects and had to validate any overages which 95% of the time I had changes from the client and an increased commitment. The other 5%, I was able to show someone in the field had Fd-UP.
