Family, Preference Cascade ← Previous post Next post → Comments JTC Feb 07 2020 at 12:36 am Right now the only color they have is green, so sick are they with envy. But hey, they’ll always have Russia. Roland Deschain Feb 07 2020 at 2:02 pm Not if Trump gives it to Russia! Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Feb 07 2020 at 12:44 am So much for post-color-blind. Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Feb 07 2020 at 12:45 am Orange is the new white? Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Feb 07 2020 at 12:49 am It will be interesting to see how much Bloomin’Idjit will spend, and how far it will get him in this year’s Presidential race. I hope he goes bankrupt. JTC Feb 07 2020 at 5:42 pm If he sticks to his pledge to blow a billion trying to buy the nom for himself or ABT (anybody but Trump) that will leave him with only another 59 of them. Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Feb 07 2020 at 12:52 am What is that Sam has in her hand? A wrench? A vape? A piccolo? Too Tall Feb 07 2020 at 12:56 am It has to be an automotive part of some kind. Henry Feb 07 2020 at 1:12 am I can’t figure it out, either. It looks vaguely like a cross between a jar opener and a coax cable compression tool. Fronk! Feb 07 2020 at 1:18 am It’s the wrench she was using to work on the car, in Wednesday’s strip. JSStryker Feb 07 2020 at 3:55 am Sonic Screwdriver? GWB Feb 07 2020 at 7:43 am My thought. Or a miniature light saber. Bill G Feb 07 2020 at 6:22 am Damfino; it almost looks like a sideways view of a double-ended crescent wrench. PaulS Feb 07 2020 at 8:45 am Who cares, nice grip! 😉 Browncoat Feb 07 2020 at 1:21 pm Kind of resembles at nickel-boron coated bolt carrier group for an AR-10. Still a bit long for that though… Too Tall Feb 07 2020 at 12:55 am The latest version of the Progtard DildoCrats’ That Was The Week That Was reminds of one of the best Christmas movies of all time: Die Hard. In particular, the line where NYPD Detective John McClane tells LAPD Deputy Chief Dwayne Robinson: “I’m not the one who just got (explicative for anal rape) on national TV. That line perfectly describes their week. Hotrod Lincoln Feb 07 2020 at 1:56 am What- – – – – -nobody’s ever seen a pair of Vise Grips???????? LOL! Bill G Feb 07 2020 at 6:23 am Not nice, shiny chrome ones. Snicker. Kafiroon Feb 07 2020 at 11:53 am Two CHROMED ones. On the trailer wall. Used them on a Hewland Transaxle for a Formula Ford and kept them “For Just In Case” for the McLarean that followed. Fun Times. Henry Feb 08 2020 at 10:13 pm And sure not symmetrical ones! W-NINETWO Feb 07 2020 at 6:57 am Agreed on the Vise Grips, but Chris I gotta give it to ya ….. that’d be one shape I’d never attempt to draw! WayneM Feb 07 2020 at 1:56 am It’s funny watching slurring SanFranNan blathering about how Trump is impeached forever and nothing Trump can do will ever remove that stain from his record. In case I haven’t said it before here (and I think I did) this impeachment is an example of tribalism… an ancient practice called “counting coup” in which warriors seek to get one up on their enemies, whether that was by stealing women/children/horses/whatever… or using stealth to kill an enemy in a way that put the warrior at great risk of discovery and/or capture. The stupid part is the Dems don’t even recognize they’ve devolved to this. Pathetic. eon Feb 07 2020 at 7:31 am Oh, they know it, but they think it’s a higher state of consciousness. They’ve resented actual democracy since they were born, Raised on a pseudo-intellectual diet of everything from Plato to homeopathy, they genuinely believe that “tribal wisdom” is superior to rational thought, because it’s “mystical”. And of course, in a tribal culture, they can rule as enlightened philosopher-kings. With death as the penalty for daring to disagree with them. They want to destroy Western civilization, and re-create the long-dead Persian Empire, with themselves as the rulers. And they wish they could kill anyone who tells them “you’re doing it wrong”. clear ether eon Old Codger Feb 07 2020 at 10:56 am It’s funny watching slurring SanFranNan blathering about how … nothing Trump can do will ever remove that stain from his record. Read a piece just yesterday about how a Repub majority House (a not-unlikely scenario come November) could pass a resolution to expunge the record and, at least to some extent, “remove the stain“. I think that would be a real hoot, don’t you? Henry Feb 08 2020 at 10:16 pm Who cares? It’s like being arrested by a pissy cop, then the department drops the charges because it’s obvious they’re garbage. It’s the cop who ought to be ashamed of that, not me. Norm Feb 07 2020 at 11:02 am Here’s my ideal comment from Trump at the national prayer breakfast as he held up the newspaper headlines. Note: this is what I wish he said, not what he did say. “Know what this is? It’s an eraser. Know what it erases? Asterisks.” John Block Feb 07 2020 at 2:02 am I advise all and sundry to check out today’s Dan Bongino podcast, #1175. Speaking of Dems & never Trumpers,. “They all know each other, and they all have something to hide.” It’ll blow yer hair back…. Bill G Feb 07 2020 at 6:26 am Commentary I saw yesterday said one single point of a Gallup poll guaranteed Trump’s reelection … 74% of those polled said they expected to be better off next year than they do today. Bill G Feb 07 2020 at 6:28 am “than they are today”. Drat my non-caffeinated mind. Paladin Feb 07 2020 at 7:38 am What I am wondering is if Bernie is willing to be bought off again? He took the “shut-up houses”, and looks to set up financially. Is he a “True Believer” and now wants to win, and implement true socialism before he kicks. With the heart attack he should be feeling his own mortality. My thought is if they steal New Hampshire, like Iowa. Will he say piss on it, and switch his campaign to a full on Independent run. No delegates to worry about, just start running for President. Go from sea to shining sea preaching the socialist gospel and fund raising, as an Independent … California here I come with a banjo on my knee …. Go where the primaries aren’t and tap the coffers first. Bill G Feb 07 2020 at 8:44 am That would be glorious. But I wonder how soon after the announcement he’d have his final heart attack. Old Codger Feb 07 2020 at 10:59 am Can you spell “Arkancide”, boys and girls? interventor Feb 07 2020 at 12:49 pm If, one enters a room where Bernie is on the floor and you detect a whiff of bitter almonds, depart quickly. WayneM Feb 07 2020 at 8:55 am If Bernie was a true believer, he would not have endorsed Hillary after she & the DNC cheated him in 2016. John Feb 07 2020 at 10:42 am Oh, I think what he had in mind was picking up the Vice Presidential slot. And then Hillary screwed him. Some are predicting that what this all leads up to is the dissolution of the Democratic Party. We should be so lucky. The only way established Parties are dissolved in this country is for some new party to come along to vacuum up the pieces before the old one re-coalesces T-1000 like. Old Codger Feb 07 2020 at 11:22 am The problem is it is EXCEEDINGLY difficult for a 3rd party candidate to get a place on any state’s ballot. The two major parties (wings of the same rapacious bird, in all reality) have gotten the rules for getting onto the ballot written such that anyone not in one of those two parties has an almost impossible task. I don’t recall the actual numbers but I do know that no 3rd party candidate in modern times has ever appeared on the ballot in all the states. I also know that all any 3rd party candidate has done – EVER – is perform as a spoiler; splitting the vote for one or the other candidates. I do not believe that Willie Jeff would have gotten his first term if Ross Perot had not run. I also believe that AlGore would have run had Nader not siphoned off significant numbers of votes. Nader got over 97,000 in Florida alone, which was over 180 times Bush’s razor thin margin. I believe that an independent run by Bernie would pretty much guarantee Trump a second term assuming the continuing Dem shenanigans hasn’t already done so. Old Codger Feb 07 2020 at 11:24 am Erm, I believe that AlGore would have WON had Nader not siphoned off significant numbers of votes. Brent Dotson Feb 07 2020 at 3:21 pm It is an almost impossible task, but the Libertarian Party did it 4 times (or 5 depending on who you count) “Historically, Libertarians have achieved 50-state ballot access for their presidential candidate four times: in 1980, 1992, 1996 (in 2000, L. Neil Smith was on the Arizona ballot instead of the nominee, Harry Browne)and most recently in 2016” I remember the celebration of the Libertarian party in 1980 the first time it was achieved. Pamela Feb 07 2020 at 10:30 am Nah, I think it’s something Javier created to ferret out the hidden weasels and traitors in the Swamp. JTC Feb 07 2020 at 11:26 am Shiny new Johnson rod. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bu-A8YfC4w0 Buck Feb 07 2020 at 11:49 am A quarter inch drive torque wrench… Halley Feb 07 2020 at 11:56 am Don’t know if it was the first time, but PDT used the E-word twice yesterday describing the (D)s staging the illegal Coup against him (and us). Bold, refreshing and accurate. Evil is as evil does, and their masks are off. Hoodude Feb 07 2020 at 1:23 pm The only successful third party is,currently known,as the Republican Party. It was Lincoln’s,who wanted union and abolition..maybe not in that order,but that’s not this discussion. Before that it was the landowners,capitalists,and business owners,capitalists,and anybody else who got to vote,sorta kinda…two parties for those who fell into two pretty broad groups..Dems were Jeffersonian,not so tied down to a strong central gummit,and the Feds,Hamiltonian who liked the idea of a central bank which not just tied but bolted down the gummit. Lincoln was a Fed,who won. Beat the Jeff’s like a drum…pretty much control the life and death and flow of everyday life. No? Ok,imho,then…what’s yours? And consider:issues before “us”..health care,infrastructure,schools,debt,immigration/foreign-policy…any of these not at the door of gummit? Any not life and death? Lay on,McDuff… JTC Feb 07 2020 at 2:37 pm Hoodat? Hoodude! Smart dude too. Dead on about Rino One, except what he wanted was union *through* abolition. True too about DT, what we said in ‘16 and ‘17 is he ran as a pragmatist to hijack the R infrastructure and bring the party and rinos and nevertrumpers within it to heel with RESULTS won with hardass street fighter methods while misdirecting and toying with the leftists like the BOSS he is. He’s an R now though, because he and we now ARE the R’s! Buck Feb 07 2020 at 2:29 pm Hondude: agree with you up to a point. From observation the Fed doesn’t bolt down the gov’t. to much of a degree. The earning public has been bolted down with the debt the gov’t. has spent the country into – we are ‘the lenders of last resort’ to the tune of 27 trillion, not the gov’t. The IRS as the enforcement arm isn’t going after the spenders but those who have to pay it back; when you earn it, spend it, save it, pass it on to your children, That money only covers the interest on those gov’t. bonds. When The Fed calls for payment on that chit we’ll in a similar position as the German gov’t. in the 1920’s. We’re in a better position politically than they were, their country was split between communists and the Republic. As an aside, the leaders of the Frankfurt School of communism all came to the United states and found jobs in the government. Other than that little tweak the rest of what you say is spot on. Hoodude Feb 07 2020 at 5:57 pm Hey guys…see and agree w youse sez…and there was this,Abe’s Chase,the SoT issued paper money,notes bonds a debt,redeemable at a bank,I guess, but backed by the govt,maybe,and this was a first,and these notes had shaky backings..so the nose was under the tent..and so it goes,goes etc etc etc. The debt,imho&,scariest thing on that life/death list..and I’m outta ideas. Except prison..and that’s a moral choice. And it’s a bad one. Jefferson A Selvy Feb 25 2020 at 8:15 pm Lincoln’s greenback was the first paper currency in the republic since the original continental folded. Backed by nothing but hopeful thoughts. All fiat currency is doomed to hyperinflation and failure. The inflation is harder to see these days due to a fair portion not actually being more than digits in a computer.
