Dumb All Over – Or Perhaps Cosmik Debris

No more ‘Crack.’

Nope, not a chance.  At least not at Hopcat.  The utterance of such a racist word is enough to send even the strongest of today’s hyper-sensitized booze hounds panicking to a safe room of crayons, puppies, and Mi-Two-Daddie’s Frank Zappa album collection.

Just well seasoned politically correct root cuts are being served now.  The fail of the millennial condition plods forward with no ketchup and less spice than one might expect from an over-hyped bar with a deep fryer in the back.  The new name for what used to be called ‘Crack fries’ is literally cosmic ..man.  From the Detroit News

“The inspiration for the name comes from Mark Sellers’ (our founder), love of Frank Zappa. One of Zappa’s classic songs, ‘Cosmik Debris,’ mentions ‘the oil of Aphrodite’ and ‘the dust of the great wazoo.’ We’ve yet to incorporate these ingredients into our seasoning, but you never know what the future holds.”

No Valley Girls welcome in these establishments.

Too 80s.

That’s some pretty interesting math you’re using there!

With the much under-reported partial federal government “shut-down” being eclipsed by the battle over The Wall by President Trump, who is aggravating the republican swamp-dwellers by actually keeping his campaign promise, compared to recalcitrant democrats claiming that the entire concept is “immoral”, what passes for an unbiased press is hoping that you’ll pay more attention to the shinny object (aka The Wall debate) rather than what is really happening in America.

Want to know what that is?

Whistling past the graveyard

There are a couple of stories making the rounds, that taken individually, might not pique everyone’s interest for very long, but taken collectively should be sounding alarm bells at the highest levels of what passes for leadership in the Michigan Republican Party.

Especially considering who was the actual cause behind it.

Michigan’s 1st district representative Jack Bergman is not afraid to hold fast on the principles of security for our borders.  But he recognizes the hypocrisy of collecting a paycheck when even a small minority of a few federal workers may be without (temporarily).

Today, Congressman Bergman announced that he will give all pay accrued during the government shutdown to local charities in the First Congressional District. This follows his co-sponsorship of legislation to prohibit Members of Congress from receiving compensation during a government shutdown.

“One of the main priorities of Congress is to fund the federal government and prioritize our national security, yet Democrats are refusing to come to the negotiating table to do just that. I support President Trump in this fight for border security because there is no greater responsibility than protecting the American people,” said Congressman Bergman.

“As negotiations continue, I’ll be donating my salary to local charity organizations in Michigan’s First District. If Congress fails to do its job resulting in a shutdown, then we should forfeit our pay as well. American citizens sent us to Washington to solve problems, not cause them. If we can’t do that, we don’t deserve to get paid.”

To which I say “thank you, sir.”

Are they for real?!?

I’ve got to admit, I was more than a little underwhelmed at last night’s speech.

A quick check of what is available on the speech easily corroborates the MSM spin-machine rushing into action to provide cover for their own side.

Obviously video from C-Span nor The White House itself was readily available.

Nothing really new was actually said, and that’s the problem (more on that in a bit).

Pres. Trump reiterated his position, albeit in an un-Trump-like fashion (very measured and scripted).

Team d, who looked more like two p.o.’d parents ready to scold their teenager for coming home after curfew, were just dripping with emotion of how NOT having the American Government performing non-essential functions (which just begs the question of why we are even paying for them in the first place), can be quickly and easily remedied if only Pres. Trump would acquiesce.

Sorry, scooter! Pres. Trump already did that multiple times already via Beavis & Butt-Head (aka Lyin’ Ryan & Squish McConnell).

IMHO, Pres. Trump went about it the wrong way. He used words, when imagery would’ve been far more effective.

Below is a very small sampling of what I mean (just wait for Chuck’s comment in the clip below):

Actions from the “friendly & peaceful migrants” from just last week.

Willard, Willard, Willard…

So, it’s a new year.

People make resolutions (which they‘ll most likely break before February 1st).

Another session of Congress prepares to ramp up in the midst of a government “shutdown”.

The democrats give President Trump more posturing and obstructionism because…well, illegal aliens (and Americans on the public dole) matter significantly more to them than the safety of the people who actually put them in office in the first place.

And then the Indrid Cold-grinning idiot from the Michigan’s 13th Congressional District lets the worst kept secret out of the bag pertaining to the democrats end game for the 116th Session of Congress.

Not to worry girlfriend, the economic wunderkind from the Bronx has got your back.

Oh, snap!

Is that the media asking more questions that she’s unable to answer?

Sorry, but you’re on your own girlfriend!

Making matters even worse (only if you are unaware of his family’s penchant for screwing things up), a “republican” completely and unnecessarily enters the fray.

Silence will be all we hear from those afflicted with TDS (Trum Derangement Syndrome) on this.

Michigan seriously went to the dogs in November. Those who speak harshly of Trump’s demeanor should probably now just shut up. Unless of course, they are finally willing to engage the ever increasing insanity of the left. From the Daily wire is a reminder of why certain people have no business representing anyone:

On Thursday night, her first night as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, new Michigan Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib spoke to a crowd of supporters and decided to personify the famous statement of Michelle Obama that Democrats go high when the GOP goes low, saying of President Trump, “We’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the mother***er.”

This speaks well of those who elected her, yes?

“Boring” is not the adjective we should be using to describe the next several years I suspect.  “Respectful” may be too much to hope for as well.

Elections have consequences to be sure.

Governor Snyder Dismisses Bipartisanship

After four long years of legislative hearings, public education, and good-old-fashioned compromise, the Michigan Senate and House last week passed a series of bills to regulate internet gaming in the state.  Earning overwhelming, bipartisan supermajorities in both houses, the bills landed on Governor Rick Snyder’s desk with a clear mandate from the legislature.

What did Snyder do?  The Governor ‘dropped the ball in the endzone’, vetoed the bills at the 11th-hour, and then he was less than honest with Michiganders about his reasons for doing so.  Par for the course for someone who started with such promise but leaves the office with approval ratings in the 30’s – covered in the stench of the Flint water crisis and sexual abuse scandal at Michigan State.

According to his veto message, Governor Snyder killed regulated internet gaming because the data doesn’t exist to justify it, and he fears that internet gaming will cannibalize the state lottery and existing casinos.

The Governor knows this is nonsense.

2920 More Days

Truthfully, I wonder if Rick Snyder couldn’t have replaced Senator Whitmer on the Capitol steps that day 6 plus years ago.

Yeah that was a boot to the backside of the guy who really needed to go, but it’s not getting any better.  For those of you with a strong constitution, rewind and play all of the video linked above. It’s obviously family friendly because it has kids in it holding signs, right?

Gretchen Whitmer is hardly friendly to the patriarchal designs of safety for the family however. While promoting theV-J-J day nonsense in that video, she at the same time has been speaking to weakening the protections afforded to us by the authorities protecting our borders and removing gang elements.

Ice Ice baby.

Probably not well thought out, her parting comment in this video speaks volumes if she intends to act upon it given that the job is now hers.  Accountability to one’s words are the hallmark of the up and coming XX Democrat activist, yes?

Somehow, there is a disconnect with the XX movement and the very ‘patriarchal’ nature of SE Michigan immigration however.  The V-J-J day exercise seems to run in conflict with the practices of such favored ‘immigrant’ communities that practice FGM.

Arguably, the forced mutilation of XX children is tantamount to kidnapping and torture, and should be considered under federal statute period.  However liberal judges are now a dime a dozen, and while supported by wing nut lefty XX’ers cannot support the V-J-J position that “my V-J-J is my own.”

Arguably, the left is insane.
