    Sam, that’s dessert you’re talking about….

      You’re thinking of the Other White Meat…;)

      • Polly Cy

        Red meat – the other white meat.

        I’m not sure what that means, exactly, but it sounded good.

        • JTC

          Contextually and virtually as to the former, expectantly and literally as to the latter, the contradiction makes perfect sense, Polly. πŸ˜‰

          • Pamela

            All I know is it has just the right amount of salt to sweet to enhance the flavor. πŸ˜‰

          • JTC

            Speaking of “salty”, good to have you back, bawdy girl. πŸ˜‰

      Actually, sub-species of Dinosaur Exhibit/

      • AlphaMike

        The original dinosaurs were done in by an act of God.

        With any luck, history will repeat itself, complete with similar lack of access to food, water and sunlight.

        • eon

          The dinosaurs died mainly due to the Chicxulub event, because most of them couldn’t evolve further to cope with the resulting changes in climate, unlike primitive mammals. The few types that could became the ancestors of birds, crocodilians, monitor lizards, and etc.

          The progressives believe they are a superior species which has evolved beyond the need for Western civilization- in fact, they hate us and wish we did not exist.

          The news media contingent at least has in reality been out-evolved, mainly by the internet. I expect academia to be the next victims of this, as online learning supplants four-year colleges. Meaning, SJWs will no longer be able to physically harass everyone else on campus, they’ll have to flame them online.

          The entertainment crowd is already feeling the pinch. TV viewing is down, movie box-office is way down, and fewer “stars” are getting the treatment they expect (and demand) from “fans”, especially the highly hyper-leftist ones. They are used to being worshiped, and it isn’t happening anymore.

          They’re all dinosaurs, and they don’t even realize it. Or else they do, and that’s the explanation for their anger and violence now. If they have to go, they will do their utmost to take others with them.

          How Islamist of them.

            It’s surprising how fast paleontologists and scientists in general jumped on the Chicxulub impact as the Dinosaur Killer. By the mid-1990’s it was dogma. Then, around 1997, the PEMEX drill cores were examined and it turned out there were several million years of Cretaceous sediments ABOVE the Chicxulub crater.
            The end of the Cretaceous may well have been caused an asteroid impact — I believe it was — but there are other candidates for the Big One. For example, the Reunion Volcano in the Indian Ocean seems to be linked with (1) a major impact, and (2) the separation of the Indian subcontinent from Africa. Now that’s a big one.
            The climate warmed up at the end of the Cretaceous, but the big killer was probably the enormous amounts of acid rain and the brief Fimbulwinter that were caused by the impact. With whole ecosystems wiped out, the big animals were more likely to starve than the small ones. Exit the dinosaurs and enter the mammals and birds.

          • Best analysis of dinos I’ve seen yet, eon. And I don’t mean the thunderlizards. I mean our contemporary lizards.

            Gee, I wonder if any of them will turn up some day in the La Brea tar pits.

          • Kafiroon

            I think that is a quite good analysis eon.
            There are those that threaten and try violence. There are those that a rich uncle trained to violence. The trained ones can break anything and are Very good at it.

          • Th3o

            Every civilization that develops solidly enough develops a similar “self appointed anointed” class. It’s a toss to figure out which of several disasters have done in prior civilizations. Lead was one small part of what killed Rome. Guess what I think the development of progressives do/have done to all past civilizations. You got it in one. Will progressives kill our civilization or will enough centurions remain to beat them down and allow a society of civilized people to continue to exist. I don’t want to kill them all but I do want to take their inherited wealth and force them to work. Work, physical work is the best way to keep sane in a crazy world. Don’t have to be forty hours of physical work per week to accomplish the change but physical work helps maintain sanity.

            (Slightly OT but funny)

            In a group of “brilliant” text messages were the following:
            Why do meteors always fall in craters?
            and
            If the world is millions of years old, why is it only 2016?

            Great narrative eon!!!

            OC,
            That’s right up there with empty talking head (CNN?) asking if near miss meteor could be result of global warming (face palm)

  • NotYetInACamp

    I love that line.

    I must be one of the people.

  • JTC

    The museum set: an early NYT managing editor’s office and a CBS anchor desk with an info plaque reading,

    “At one time in America the news media was a very important and trusted source of information and events, so unbiased and honest that people said if you saw it in the New York Times or heard it from the lips of Cronkite, you knew it was so.”

    And people would think it was just a joke.

    • Old Codger

      “And people would think it was just a joke.”

      It was a joke – just a really bad one. Actually “journalists” were just as biased back in the day as they are now – they were simply less blatant about it. Cronkite was a socialist from the get-go. I suspect that “All the news we see fit to print.” has always been the rule. I think that by the 70s they were coming out of the closet. Except for technical advances, I doubt Tricky Dick did anything previous and following presidents haven’t done. He just got caught.

      I suppose I’m just a cynic.

      • JTC

        You are, we all are, and for good reason.

        But most weren’t then, and of course instantaneous “information” exchange is largely why. It is well to remember a truth that is a little hard to comprehend, but truth nonetheless, that “perception is reality”…what is universally believed to be true is true; essentially reverse self-fulfilling prophecy.

        Our greatest generation…were they? To you and me, absolutely. And history will always hold them in the highest regard as the saviors of the world, in no small part because of belief in providence and the triumph of good over evil. In a contemporary context however, leading up to that war, society had a similar disdain for them as layabouts and ne’er do wells with a general concensus of them leading the country to hell in a handbasket. Luckily for us, fate intervened and their own fortitude combined with the aforementioned belief and perception -unfettered and not destroyed by the type of angry anti-American criticisms, protests, selfishness, and jealous rage that we see meet with any strong and focused initiative of today…like Trump and the deplorables- allowed the long, arduous process which was not without naysayers and dissent, absolutely saved the world from itself.

        Even Trump referenced this recently (and of course was roundly criticized for it, ironically by those who hate American most), when in speaking of past atrocities by Russia et al, he said “What, you think America is so innocent?” Take a look and a listen:

        https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-02-05/asked-about-putin-trump-says-us-isn-t-so-innocent

        And he is right. He too is a cynic when warranted. How refreshing is it to have a leader who is unafraid of the truth and unabashedly tells it?

        Point being, and this has turned into another major burn of Chris’ bandwidth for which he may admonish me again, the relative simplicity of the times (heh, get it?) allowed a relative purity of thought when consuming media that while not without its flaws and preferences even then, was nothing even remotely like the open hate, obstruction, and fake news we see today…imagine if Cronkite had said some of the things about America and its leaders as are being said of Trump now.

        So yeah, checking out that back-in-the-day newseum would certainly seem like a joke in comparison. And it might even be a powerful enough persuader of “perception” to bring about the “reality” that today’s leftists so desperately want, the failure of the Trump admin. to overcome it. It’s on us to continue the support that got us this far, and to spread our own perception of what is good -and critically necessary- for our country and our children to survive.

  • Tom_Ohio

    I can not post now on a lot of conservative sites, because i got so mad in election season about people who were stupid back then
    This is a comment from one such site that I can not even comment on, and it backs me up in my feeling and thinking from those months ago, yet I cannot comment there to this day. sigh
    Anyway, its a little enlightening
    Its from Ace’s open thread this evening, comment 13

    13 I’m so glad I didn’t get my way. Thankful, even.
    As a constitutional conservative, I supported Ted Cruz in the primaries. But I now realize that Donald Trump was correct about the largest issue in the primary: if Cruz had won–or anyone besides Trump–we’d all be saying “Madame President” right now. And listening to the liquid “swoosh” of the last bits of the Constitutional Republic being flushed down the toilet forever. Donald Trump was right, and I was wrong.

    I went from Trump hostile to Trump skeptic to Trump inevitable to Trump supporter to Trump enthusiast to where I am today: Crawl Across Broken Glass to Help This President Help Us.

    The shabby, venal, disgusting and even criminal opposition to this president is unmatched in American history. I don’t mean just the non-stop bald-faced professional liars in a Free Press enslaved by their own ideology. Or even the unheard-of outright rebellion by the allegedly Permanently-Entrenched Blob-ocracy. No new president, with the possible exception of Lincoln and the Confederates, has been so shabbily-treated and set upon from all quarters like rabid hyenas on a lion.

    By “criminal”, I mean the intimidation and violence of rioters, the lawless “courts” and especially the seditious national security crimes by Obama and his Muslim Brotherhood Deep State Spooks.

    I don’t mean I’ll like every policy or tweet; I don’t and I won’t. But the pure ass displayed by his opponents has been so deeply unfair and so fundamentally un-American, it has pushed me to support him come hell or high water–and we’ve already seen both in this first month.

    They have declared war on this man.

    Decent people should cross every street necessary to help him win that war.

    • Doc Epador

      One consequence is many of these moles are showing themselves early, so they should be fairly easy to identify and root out. Clearly a JV team.

      Well, maybe not, but was fun to throw that back on the folks that called this out on the Islamic radicals destroying the world. They are all part of that team and need to be rooted out, isolated and delegitimized as quickly as possible.

    • JTC

      @Tom, nice piece; it is their loss that those sites have banned you. You are quite right as has been said here that the aligned bloc have just one goal, to Dump Trump so as to allow their own self-perpetuation.

      But in your comparison of that ignorant and/or evil campaign against the Trump phenomenon (us!) you have your antagonist/protagonist characterizations exactly backward, as cold crass lies of the one president in our history to wage genocidal war against the people he purportedly sought to retain as citizens compares directly with the single-minded campaign against Trump without regard to the welfare of the people. Slavery was to the CW as tea was to the RW…a lightning rod and rallying cry, and its use as clearly admitted in his letters as a ruse to take and rape and pillage what some had built and sought to protect by separation was and is the most horrible, deceitful and treasonous act by any president ever.

      But yeah, other than that, dead on as to the campaign against Trump…he has so far convinced me that he is the most real, flawed, capable, dedicated and pure of heart and intent politician of any I have ever witnessed…and I’m a Reagan conservative, so that’s saying something. Pretty much the diametrical opposite of Lincoln in fact, while what we now call the deplorables could quite rightly be called the confederates of today.

        So are you saying “The Deplorables will rise again”?

      The louder, more obnoxious and more destructive they are, and the more they splash it across the internet, the more they turn people off. It started before the election and will continue until they have all faded to black holes in the ether. They giggle over their ‘net videos. We look at those same videos and wonder how soon they’ll spend some time in padded cells. It’s coming.

      Consider it something a clear demo of similar to thermodynamics: for every action, there is an EQUAL and OPPOSITE reaction.

    • NotYetInACamp

      I knew Trump had the support of the people after the first Republican debate.
      Trump differentiated himself from all other (pathway to citizenship) candidates when Trump said to apply the law. Courts now have ignored the law and create decisions from whole cloth delusion.
      I have found many people that have made the transition that you have made.

      I judge people by their actions. Trump is acting as an American intending to make America great again. So President Trump has begun moving our nation.
      The TTP and allowing clean coal power plants and regulations and trade and taxes and so much more also made him the candidate. his opinion expressed over the years also made me think that the establishment politicians and media would oppose him. He said many things that I have said. I just did not make my billion, though good plans would have worked, unfortunately people will stop legitimate efforts. I have created prosperity for many. trump is also creating prosperity for many more than i have done.
      I and many will defend Trump as his efforts are now shown to be good. If I could get paid I would do even more. I will continue to give opinions when I believe they could have a good effect.

      The opposition to Trump never expected the anointed candidate to lose. They are united in opposing everything good that America has stood for, and helped people with over time. There was never an anti-war movement. There was only an anti-war movement. All piled onto the bandwagon. Most now have no clue as to the reasoning and logic behind what they do in opposing trump and America. Those manipulating the opposition have the deposing of Trump in mind. Many enemies have united against America. (United Against America – good tag for these enemies.) They use any enemy as the person they attack. If a RINO had won, they would still attack. It is just that an American has won that they realize they could suffer total defeat that makes their controllers set them in motion so vigorously.
      We all just need to keep supporting President trump. Of course when we disagree, we must voice why we do so. We might be right. We might improve what we are doing in making America great again. This movement contains so many that have parts that can improve the mix. There is much to do.

      • John

        “Of course when we disagree, we must voice why we do so. We might be right. We might improve what we are doing in making America great again.”
        It is in the seeming utter chaos of the internet that this statement has become glaringly obvious. Mere assertion is simply not enough.
        Here’s to the return of rational discourse!

        • JTC

          “Here’s to the return of rational discourse!”

          See, discourse implies give and take. What have you seen from any of the various leftist opposition that was in any way rational?

          The absolutely correct response to the campaign of obstruction is one of disruption. That is Trump’s fabulously successful tack and forte. They don’t know what the fuck to say or do to obstruct what they can’t understand, and so their anti-message is disrupted to the point of nonsensical babble. Good.

          And on the world stage the disruption of same-old same-old bullshit and centralized control is in the process of awakening a whole ‘nother continent to the march toward self-annihilation and acquiescence to the complete takeover of radical islamicism. Good.

          Rational discourse? Maybe later, when it can be bilateral. For now, disrupt and destroy what would otherwise destroy us!

          • John

            I was thinking in developmental cultural terms and not present day politics. Our current crisis has its roots in the clash between leftist progressive indoctrination and the real world we have to live in.
            As I see it, the only way to marginalize the Progs is to develop a culture that demands _reasons_ for their assertions and _results_ (not fantasy) in exchange for the damage they cause in pursuit of their meme-of-the-moment.
            Rational Discourse, of course, is not the way of the Progressive, indeed it is the very antithesis of their being.

          Oh, SHOOT!

          There only was an anti-America Movement.

          I hope that clarifies. All the enemies of America could muster under that anti-American banner.

          Don’t interrupt my misstatements. Actually do. That is included in rational discourse.

      • MudMarine

        Yep, completely agree. I (we) went once to see the wall where I made shadings of a few lost friends, a moment of silence & prayer. Then we took our 5 yr old daughter to the Smithsonian. Daughter is now 43 & we haven’t been back, same reason as you – I’m afraid I’d catch the “never get overs” from near proximity to the corruption.

        For Trump I’d disarm and go. But I’d be on high alert the whole time. Really uncomfortable w/o my Glock – and especially THERE.

      • Deplorable B Woodman

        Too bad. The Smithsonian is one of this nation’s treasures, it’s “attic”. If there’s ever an opportunity to visit just that one (HA! more like several dozen) place, take it. Your time will be well rewarded. Just do it during the daytime.

  • Calvin

    Straying from the point of the cartoon slightly I was thinking WHY are they reacting so violently to the loss. We lost in 92 and 08 but didn’t have this reaction. Then it occurred to me…if you sold your soul to the devil (Hillary and the democrats) and the devil didn’t follow through, wouldn’t you be mad? Your sacrifice, the things you had to do and say, and what do you get? Bupkis. Granted this only describes some of the Hillary supporters. I do think there is something in that. A loss of innocence and you get NOTHING in return.

    • eon

      Their reaction is the result of;

      1. News and entertainment media that told them Hillary could not possibly lose.

      2. Fifty-plus years of being told how great, wonderful, and perfect they are by their parents, their teachers, the aforementioned media, and each other.

      3. Never hearing anything to the contrary.

      4. Being taught that they are the Wave of the Future, and that anyone who doesn’t agree is a (insert appropriate epithet here).

      5. Being taught that violence in the name of the Cause (whichever one it is) is not merely allowed and justifiable, but the mark of a truly enlightened member of the elite’.

      6. Being conditioned to simply like violence for its own sake (engendering feelings not unlike sexual climax).

      7. A nihilistic lust for destruction which is as all-encompassing as it is irrational.

      8. Sustained use of more “recreational” drugs than most non #woke and #withit people are even aware exist.

      There are other reasons, but those are the key ones.

        Good stuff there!
        #2 seems critical to me. Is there anyone else who thought they were suffering at the hands of parents, teachers, etc… where anything less than perfection just gave you “room for improvement” (very frustrating); but eventually realized that they were preparing us to deal with the real world?

        Having a great self image is good, unless it’s completely wrong.

        • eon

          As someone who was bullied unmercifully in K-12, I learned early on that the old guidance counselor’s thing about “bullies have low self-esteem” is utter bull.

          The majority of bullies have egos the size of Everest, and think everyone should kowtow to them accordingly.

          Guidance counselors who tried to “raise their self-esteem” were mainly confirming the bullies’ own exaggerated opinion of themselves. Which they saw as the guidance counselors (a) giving them the tribute they were de and (b) sanctifying their behavior. Which encouraged them to do more of it.

          The same dynamic is at work here, and I often wonder how many SJWs were schoolyard bullies in their younger days.

      They lost much more, and at a time when they were convinced they had it all.
      Hildamort was to continue Obola’s policies on open-door immigration which was to lead to a permanent liberal majority.
      She was to continue to appoint liberal judges to wipe out the Constitution, including the shutting down of the new media and eliminating private ownership of firearms.
      Our Democratic Republic was to be swept away except in name, replaced by a Big Government of liberals that occasionally switched people on top but never changed in principle.
      They were at the altar of their High Church of Gaia, with the High Priest prepared to wed the Liberal Elites to Total Control when the High Priest, just before solemnizing the marriage, asked if anyone could speak against it, or forever hold their silence.

        Bill G, so many people missed how many federal judges Obama appointed. Maybe the behavior of the Ninth (and the lower court which set it up) will wake a few of them up. Those appointments were one of the most damaging things Obama did.

        How many people can afford to appeal a ruling from federal court on up to the SCOTUS? Damned few, and damned few will ever be chosen by SCOTUS to be addressed. Simply by deciding which ones to hear, SCOTUS exerts an extraordinary effect upon how our laws function and get enforced. Often not to our benefit, either.

  • My theory, or one of them, is that they actually lost by SO much that they were actually scared of an uprising or revolution. But, in order to seem as though they may still be relevant, they continue to spout that they were “that close” in order to try to set up for their next attempt at power. They don’t think we see this, so they keep making noise to look as though they still have relevance.

    There must be literally thousands of people who had

    she was supposed to”….it puts things into perspective.

      Mort, think of how many were _promised_ positions in exchange for the things – many illegal (and definitely immoral), I’m sure – they did for Clinton’s campaign. What a lovely thought, the incredible disappointment they experienced. It would be a treat to discover how many might have committed suicide over it (I can dream, can’t I?).

    Also, remember “Bush Derangement Syndrome?”. I think this BDS 2.0 but in a much more virulent form. Read about it below:

      No, I made it up.But I can sure see him saying it!

    • MudMarine

      So did BDS cause the increase of Brazilians during his administration? ‘Cause the word Bush was so offensive?

      Just asking (tongue in cheek) πŸ˜‰

        Just how do the Aussies feel about us using that word Bush? And what about the worldwide term of Bush meat? How do we feel about me bringing either of these up.

        We all can imagine Trump saying so many great and yuge things. Its our movement that does it. It has somebody great and yuge legitimately in the White House who is actually working for us and the good.

          NYIAC,
          Not sure where you’re going, but I’ll assume that it’s not really caring what others make of a word we may use. I try to be polite and don’t intentionally offend people, but you can’t fix stupid.

          In college my Public Speaking prof asked all of us to write our definition of “bush hog”. We got baby wild pigs, the expected sexual comments and me + 1 other who answered a cutting deck operated off the PTO of a tractor. I was alone in having the correct definitions of tine and roil.

          My point is I don’t care was Australians think of the words I use. They voted themselves out of possessing guns!

          I do care about this forum and if I did offend anyone, please accept my sincere apology. I was just trying to inject some humor, something my wife says I do way too often. I am not PC, most would say I’m anti-PC. I don’t apologize for that and never will.

            RegT,
            Never heard that one but I’ll file it away as new knowledge. I’m originally from central FL, cattle country, now VA, horse country. Of course we had our obligatory swamps and sink holes. It is FL after all πŸ˜‰

            At the world renown International Airport, Sarasota version, we used Brush Hogs. But the name for those grass/weed cutters is same/same.
            When some welding was needed on them, many people tended to gather to “watch”. Downwind.

            In rural Flarduh at least, I think it’s a case of “genericism”.

            Like a “coke” or “clorox” or “band-aid” the common brand becomes the thing itself. In the case of the bush hog, it came to denote quality too as low-grade farm and machine tools came along to make inroads on price. I recall noticing the 1/16″ steel top plate of a cheap rotary cutter to the I think 1/4″ of the Bush Hogs we were used to, as I found myself constantly changing the shear pins on the crappy ones.

            Yeah, they’re bush hogs.

            No offense. none taken. I liked your comments. And all the comments generated. Someday our comments will be half as entertaining as the artists presentations. πŸ™‚
            Humor is a gift. A present in the present.

            MM. A cousin and a former brother in law were Marines. They were in the mud. One was in the Delta as a Platoon Sergeant for two tours. In the bush, or rather much of the Bush was marsh. wet. Mud. The other ran some bridge construction detachment and retired out as a Lt. Colonel. Dirt and Mud there also.
            I like the ideas engendered here. I just gotta know my limitations. (paraphrase of Clint)
            From Miami’s Bitch. Have major connection to a ranch outside of Clewiston. Now live on what was historically known in the 1820’s as Kissimmee Island (Not Brahma Island). I had cousins here. i had a cousin with Major Dade when he had that little dust up around Christmas 1835 with the Indians that had moved to Florida from Georgia and South Carolina. The sinkholes are mainly from Lakeland West according to USGS maps. I am East of that.

    Note people we are still seeing the “Russians did it” and “The administration is in chaos” themes and memes spouted by the media mediots (spit). This is the ground game of push the narrative to the LIV. Condition response, make it seem worse/terrible (weekly body counts coming back) that it is, doom and gloom all the time (the economy is gonna fail) then offer a bright shiny utopia to those same LIV’s.

    We must call them on this game. Challenge all narratives from the mediots. The Journallist still runs the programming for this weeks message. Shine the light of truth. It’s the best disinfectant short of two behind the ear.

      After Great and Yuge research I must report that George Washington, A great President, was a Russian. Snopes cat backs me up on it. Would a cat lie on the internet? Would I ask you to check with the cat if it was not all factual? You can’t doubt the kitty.

      My cognitive dissonance almost kicked in when they started blaming Russia. After all, for eight years they swooned over the Rodina as the God-Wannabee canceled missile defense systems for Poland, told Vlad he’d be “more flexible” after the 2012 election, and etc.

      They loved Russia then. What’s changed?

      I am forced to conclude that the progressives have decided that Russia really is “post-Communist”, and has rejected Marxism completely. That would put it on their Enemies List for sure.

      So in reality, their abreaction is actually good news in a way.
