SHOE: would that I could.
AMMO GRRRLL: The NFL can go to Hell. My thoughts exactly.

Others seem to agree.
THE FINAL COLLAPSE of a liberal Democrat.
The political class is not superior to the rest of us, morally or intellectually. Their pretensions are bogus. Therefore, we should give them less money and less power over our lives.
The time has come for progressives and political correctness to be relegated to the dustbin of history.
HEH. Make of it what you will.
NO, AMERICA, ObamaCare is not cheaper than employer-based insurance plans. And in fact, employer-based insurance plan premiums are rising to keep up with ObamaCare plan requirements.

Every free lunch is paid for by someone -- usually the taxpayer.
'HIS MAJESTY': Student single-handedly defeats an army of gender neutral activists.

Mock them. Early and often. Make them live up to the standards they demand of others.
TRUMP: Clinton bodyguards should lose their guns 'and let's see what happens to her'.

Donald Trump has been roundly criticized for his comment by the Hillary syncophants, but his essential point remains: progressives would have their elite protected by armed guards while the 'hoi polloi' are disarmed and unable to protect themselves.
WELL DESERVED: Man gets shocked trying to steal electrified Trump yard sign.

Also gets arrested for trespassing....

RICOCHET: California's Condom Conundrum. Read the comments -- they are absolutely hilarious.
PIN APPROPRIATE? Democrat lawmaker wears Hillary pin during House hearing on Clinton email probe. It's Shelia Jackson Lee, who is already well-known, but in general if a lawmaker wants to advertise himself/herself as a fool, it's fine with me.
THE ANSWER IS DEMOCRATS. What's killing the American Dream?
TURNABOUT IS FAIR PLAY: Virginia Beach restaurant uses Kaepernick jersey as doormat. Progressives have a hard time understanding that freedom of speech is for both sides.

I wouldn't waste good money buying a Kaepernick jersey, but it someone wants to give me one (or more), I'll happily use it (them) to line my cats' litter box(es).

TRIUMPH OF THE WITLESS: Hollywood shills for Hillary.

Supposedly these are Hollywood's, er, 'the world's biggest,' celebrities; I didn't recognize a single one. Don't know if that says something about me - or them.
ANOTHER DAY, another night of rioting.

I haven't checked tonight's news yet, but one interesting item from the link above - of the top 20 cities for police killings in 2016, a simple Google search shows 17 have Democrat administrations. The exceptions: Albuquerque, NM; Tulsa, OK; and Stockton, CA.

JEEZ: Facebook cracks down on Trump supporters using 'deplorable' in their profile names.

PROGRESSIVES, TAKE NOTE: On Election Day, it's okay not to vote. Really.

Personally, I hope to live long enough to see a return to paper ballots, in-person registration prior to Election Day, in-person voting (with photo ID), and restricted absentee voting.

If you don't care enough to make some small personal sacrifice, you shouldn't be in a voting booth.

HILLARY CALLS AMMO GRRRLL a 'basket of deplorables'. She responds:
Hillary, you basket case of incompetence, lies, and incompetent lying; you burping Tupperware container of influence peddling, fee gouging and charity fraud; you rasping, coughing, plus-size pantssuit of prevarication; you muffin-top of mendacity; you boring bin of dingbatterry who sold a quarter of our uranium to Putin; you cringing, caving, can of cowardice who can’t even assert that “All Lives Matter”; you pathetic, insecure woman whose major claim to historic import is being born with female genitalia: Shut up.

If you’re deployable, you’re definitely deplorable.

IT'S ALL ABOUT ME: The moment of silence remembering the September 11 victims at a Pentagon memorial service began early in order to accommodate a restless President Obama.

HILLARY: half of all Trump supporters are 'deplorable'. To which I respond:

Mock her. Mock her relentlessly.
THE PROGRESSIVE PROFESSORATE OF TOLERANCE commands students who question 'climate change' to shut up or get out.

Methinks the administration that harbors these, er, 'professors' should tell them that their services are no longer required. And escort them out of the ivied halls of academia.
LIVE FROM OMAHA, it’s Jill Stein. Gist: "A major faction of the Democrat Party is part of the lunatic fringe."

CHEAPER AND CLEANER NUCLEAR PLANTS could finally become reality — but not in the United States.

FROM MY EMAIL: Little Johnny strikes again.
A teacher asked her 6th grade class how many of them were Hillary Clinton fans. Not really knowing what a Hillary Clinton fan is, but wanting to be liked by the teacher, all the kids raised their hands except for little Johnny. The teacher asked little Johnny why he has decided to be different...again.

Little Johnny said, "Because I'm not a Hillary Clinton fan."

The teacher asked, "Why aren't you a fan of Hillary Clinton?"

Johnny said, "Because I'm a Republican." The teacher asked him why he's a Republican. Little Johnny answered, "Well, my Mom's a Republican and my Dad's a Republican, so I'm a Republican."

Annoyed by this answer, the teacher said, "If your Mom was a moron and your Dad was an idiot, what would that make you?"

Little Johnny replied, "That would make me a Hillary Clinton fan."
Little Johnny is smart.

OH, BY THE WAY, PROGRESSIVES, Donald Trump has tied Hillary in a new Investor's Business Daily national poll.

Maybe your days of smug, smarmy, sleazy virtue signalling are about over....
THANKS, MR. PRESIDENT: Minnesota ObamaCare rates to skyrocket by 36% to 67%.
Even for those who do get coverage, deductibles are so high that insurance only ends up covering catastrophic events and routine checkups that would cost just a few hundred dollars at most in a retail market.
Note that we're quickly moving back to what was quaintly called catastrophic health insurance, not health care. And (back then) you didn't have to pay an outrageous premium to get it.

HERE'S A THOUGHT: "Low taxes and laissez-faire capitalism don’t provide enough opportunities for graft."
CONSUMERS FOR PAPER OPTIONS: A federal mandate for waste.

A few years ago, my credit union decided to charge me for mailing my monthly statements. Since those monthly statements are tax records, and I keep tax records on paper for many years, I told the credit union that if they chose to charge me, they'd lose a customer forever. They folded.

A year or so later, I began receiving monthly mortgage statements informing me that my next mortgage bill was due in 'X' days. Since the mortgage is automatically paid from my checking account (as was my auto payment at that time), I called to have the paper statements discontinued, since all were automatically paid and showed in the monthly credit union statements I keep for tax purposes.

"Can't do that," I was told. "The federal government now requires us to send out the statements whether or not you need or want them." I also receive a 7-10 page monthly pile of crap from my prescription drug plan - either email or paper, with no option to stop it. Since I refuse to disclose my email address to avoid getting on another thousand email distribution lists, I'm now left having to shred 7-10 pages of garbage that I don't want every month.

This is typical progressivism - punish the innocent to protect the guilty; punish the smart to protect the stupid.

Obviously there are some documents I want; others I do not. Why shouldn't it be my choice?
A GREAT ELECTION: Not between the lesser of two evils, but between good and evil.
YES, THERE'S SMOKE, but I didn't inhale.
When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over an attempt to reform health care. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn't get a vote in a Democrat controlled US Congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million for studies, promotion, and other efforts.

Then, President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood - both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration.

Next, she chose Janet Reno - husband Bill described her selection as "my worst mistake."

Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.

Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection. When a little probing led to the discovery of Ms. Guanier's radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.

Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department.

Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.

Many younger voters will have no knowledge of "Travelgate." Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson - and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.

Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the President denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House.

Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.

Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the "bimbo eruption" and scandal defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle were:

She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.

She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor.

After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr's investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs. Hillary's devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for 'lying under oath' to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.

Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, "I do not recall," "I have no recollection," and "I don't know" a total of 56 times while under oath.

After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.

What a swell person - ready for another four or eight years of this low-life fool?

Now we are exposed to the unsecure keeping and attempted destruction of beyond Top Secret emails while Hillary was US Secretary of State and the "pay to play" schemes of the Clinton Foundation. What "shoe will fall" next?

But to her loyal fans: "What difference does it make?"

Electing Hillary Clinton president would be like granting Satan absolution and giving him the keys to heaven!
