The Americans With No Abilities Act (ANAA)



FreeRide


"The Free Ride Act"

The Senate is considering a sweeping Legislative Bill sponsored by the Democratic Party that will provide new benefits for many more Americans.   The Americans With No Abilities Act is being hailed as a major legislative goal by advocates of the millions of Americans who lack any real skills and ambition.

"Roughly 50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and drive necessary to carve out a meaningful role for themselves in society," said California Sen. Barbara Boxer.  "We can no longer stand by and allow People of Inability (POI) to be ridiculed and passed over.  With this legislation, employers will no longer be able to grant special favors to a small group of workers, simply because they have some idea of what they are doing."

In a Capitol Hill press conference Nancy Pelosi pointed to the success of the U.S. Postal Service, which has a long-standing policy of providing opportunity without regard to performance.  At the state government level, the Department of Motor Vehicles also has an excellent record of hiring Persons with No Ability (63%).


Under the Americans With No Abilities Act, more than 25 million mid-level positions will be created, with important-sounding titles but little real responsibility, thus providing an illusory sense of purpose and performance.

Mandatory non-performance-based raises and promotions will be given to guarantee upward mobility for even the most unremarkable employees. The legislation provides substantial tax breaks to corporations that promote a significant number of Persons of Inability (POI) into middle-management positions, and give a tax credit to small and medium-sized businesses that agree to hire one clueless worker for every two talented hires.

Finally, the Americans With No Abilities Act contains tough new measures to make it more difficult to discriminate against the non-abled, banning, for example, discriminatory hiring interview questions such as, "Do you have any skills or experience that relate to this job?"

"As a non-abled person, I can't be expected to keep up with people who have something going for them," said Mary Lou Gertz, who lost her position as a lug-nut twister at the GM plant in Flint, Mich., due to her inability to remember “righty tighty, lefty loosey”.  "This new law should be real good for people like me.  I'll finally have job security."  With the passage of this bill, Gertz and millions of other untalented citizens will finally see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Said Sen. Dick Durbin, Ill: "As a senator with no abilities, I believe the same privileges that elected officials enjoy ought to be extended to every American with no abilities.  It is our duty as lawmakers to provide each and every American citizen, regardless of his or her inadequacy, with some sort of space to take up in this great nation and a good salary for doing so."

This message was approved by Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Diane Feinstein, Barbara Boxer & Nancy Pelosi... and cuzzin ricky


A Pudgy Dictator's Illusions














Too bad Australia isn't a nuclear power.  Nor is Japan.  Nor is South Korea. That leaves it up to the US to nuke the NORKS.  We have to have a combined attack using one or two tactical nukes, plus a considerable amount of
firepower on non-nuclear military sites.

What will be the hard part won't be taking out the NORK nuclear and other military capability.  The hard part will be taking care of the starving masses who will want to head for China and S Korea.  That's what will need the greatest planning ahead of the strike.

Stu & Skoonj

As laughable as that NorK freak is, well WWI began when some nut cake assassinated an Archduke and 17 million died, and anther 20 million were casualties. When the machine gun was the most lethal weapon.

Heavy Seize Ahead





                                           





A New York Times report on Saturday claimed that FBI Director James Comey decided to reveal that he was re-opening the investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton because he suspected Attorney General Loretta Lynch was covering up for her — and because an email found by Russian hackers seemed to support those suspicions.

Now, according to the Times, another hacked document, purportedly stolen by Russians, may have revealed collusion between the former Attorney General and the Democrats to ensure Hillary Clinton’s victory in the general election.



Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton because he suspected Attorney General Loretta Lynch was covering up for her — and because an email found by Russian hackers seemed to support those suspicions.

The Times’ investigative report suggests that a U.S. intelligence agency managed to intercept some of what Russian hackers were stealing — and that one document, “described as both a memo and an email, was written by a Democratic operative who expressed confidence that Ms. Lynch would keep the Clinton investigation from going too far.”

Now, according to the Times, another hacked document, purportedly stolen by Russians, may have revealed collusion between the former Attorney General and the Democrats to ensure Hillary Clinton’s victory in the general election.
According to the Times, Comey feared that Lynch — who had insisted the Clinton probe be referred to as a “matter” and not as an “investigation,” and who suggested it the investigation was not criminal when, in fact, it was — would declare the case closed, and then Russian hackers would leak the document to undermine the FBI’s image of independence.

The Times notes: “Mr. Comey’s defenders regard this as one of the untold stories of the Clinton investigation, one they say helps explain his decision-making.” And if a local news reporter in Phoenix had not caught Lynch meeting with former President Bill Clinton, she might have succeeded in sheltering the Clintons even more effectively than she had.

When Comey’s letter to Congress about the re-opening of the investigation was revealed on October 28, it changed the contours of the presidential race — arguably by uniting reluctant conservatives around Donald Trump’s candidacy. [FULL]

93-Year Old Man Wins a Storytelling Contest With a Hilarious Story About His Valentines in 1933



Amongst the bunch of valentines I received in the second grade was one from my secret crush, Pat Szatkowski.  On the back of the envelope she inscribed "SWAK."  I asked my mom what that meant and she said "Sealed With a Kiss." I was mortified, and ecstatic all at once.  I was in love with Patricia all the way through the 4th grade when she dumped me for a 5th grader. Bitch.

In Memory of


Elizabeth "Beth" Cleaver

The early 2000s were the heyday years of conservative bloggers, and if you followed along, you visited "My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" and Beth, the Bamapacyderm.


Beth was an outspoken, principled conservative. Believing that "everyone is entitled to her opinion," Beth freely shared her ideas, thoughts, hopes, dreams and her angst with us all, never failing to amuse and provoke, and she challenged others to do the same.

Beth gathered many female conservative bloggers together, creating "The Cotillion," encouraging the exchange of thoughts, ideas, and conservative values. Being a Cotillion Blogger was a highlight of my time as a blogger.  As one of the many Tiara-wearing members, I spent many. many hours, chatting, brainstorming and laughing with the other Tiara-wearing Cotillion members. We were a force to be reckoned with.

Beth was fierce in her determination to make a difference in this world, and in that, she succeeded like no other.

Beth was an Air Force Vet, and she was passionate about all things military, and especially supportive of our Troops during the early days of the Middle East Conflicts.

Near or around the early Obama days, Beth closed her blog, and moved to Facebook, playing games and enjoying life, but still giving her opinions. Thousands of people flocked to her "wall" and the discussions there were heated, varied and always interesting.


Beth battled cancer for a large part of her adult life and, beating cancer once, she remained cancer-free for many years. Sadly, in January of this year, cancer once again reared up and Beth underwent surgery for a brain tumor, but this new cancer was especially aggressive and spread quickly.

Throughout treatment, Beth remained cheerful and positive, every time we spoke, her outlook was sunny, and determined.

At 9:18 am on Saturday, April 22, 2017, after a brave and valiant fight, surrounded by loved ones and at peace, Beth succumbed to the disease.

It is impossible to number the people whose lives were touched by Beth. It seems impossible to imagine life going on without da Beth. There is a hole in the world that can never be filled.

Beth was my hero, my mentor, and my friend. I will miss her, through all of the days of my life.

--LindaSoG

Charitable donations in memory of Beth can be made to The Cancer Research Institute (www.cancerresearch.org) or St. John's Episcopal Church of Laurel, MS, where Beth will be interred in the columbarium.




Bruce Wee





Conservative street artist Sabo created the phony posters timed for Jenner's appearance during Tucker Carlson's Fox News show in Bill O'Reilly's previous time slot.



Appropriate Free Republic Comment

Bruce has his problems. I think that's putting it gently.
I don't wish bad things for him, as he's already chosen what seems to be the worst path for him.

All this hyper activity that seems to include him being some kid of new-age poster boy girl whatever for the new blossoming spectrum of genders, was going to be destructive to him in the long term.

You don't have to hate the guy to think this is the wrong path. Every time I see him I am motivated to wince.

Here this artist has pretty much expressed what many people think. What Jenner is doing can't be good for him. He's doing his best to make his way in the world. If he wants to do that in his private life, hey, different strokes...

It's when he tries to be public and act as if everything is okay, that I being to see cracks in the image.

I'm afraid Jenner is doomed at some point to be involved in a tragic end.

Those who lofted him to take a very public stance on these matters, really had no care for Jenner. He was a means to and end, publicly making the case transgender was the best fit for many people.

I'm not sold on that. I'm not sold on it even for Jenner.

I don't wish him pain in life, but sometimes our choices guarantee us that. I hope I'm wrong about that being the case with Jenner.

I don't like what I see ahead for him.

I've always viewed BO as a useful idiot, but one hated by the despicables.  So good on him.

RE: FOX NEWS;   Remember that family restaurant you really loved?  Great food.  Reasonable prices.  Then the owner died and the kids promptly ran it into the ground?

LIFE INSURANCE FOR ... WHO?

Res Ipsa Loquitur        


She burst on the scene last August when she upset a 44-year incumbent Democrat in the Minnesota state primary elections to become the nation’s first female Muslim state legislator.

She was one of only two members of the Minnesota State House to vote against a bill that would allow life insurance companies to deny payouts to the beneficiaries of terrorists who die in violent attacks on Americans.

"Omar’s vote sticks out because at least 42 Somali refugees have been confirmed by the FBI to have left the U.S. to join overseas terrorist organizations, including al-Shabab, the al-Qaida affiliate in Somalia, and ISIS in Syria and Iraq
I think we have her motive, Boss.

cinema à la carte                                 


I highly recommend that you watch "Brockmire" on the IFC channel.  You'll find that it pushes the bounds of everything that is decent and perverted.

1.  watch the "uncut" versions of the first two episodes if they are available to you

2.  make sure you watch it "solo"

Just sayin'

You can thank me later

cuzzin ricky

Whoa!  Is this another "9 Songs?"

After everyone was in bed last night, I subscribed to IFS on the iPad, put on headphones and let her rip. It begins with a baseball announcer (Hank Azaria, who I did not recognize because he usually looks like this.
—>)  taking a very big swig of red whiskey, and telling the audience how he went home last night, opened the front door where a lot of naked people, with his wife right in the middle, wearing a strap-on, was pounding the crap out of his neighbors backside ...

Now, that's an opening.  Segue to 10 years later. Amanda Peet, who I recognized, is the new owner of a failed minor league team.  She has lured him back from the far east where he was broadcasting cock fights from the Philippines, and such.  He has never heard of the internet, and has no idea his rant had gone viral on YouTube, and he's now an icon. 

I am laughing my ass off, and cannot wait for the next installments.  Oh, so far there have been no actual "9 Song" moments, but since Amanda Peet has in the past had no compunction about bearing all her lady parts, I wouldn't be surprised.

You're welcome

Progressive Science *SPIT*


            Global Warming Fade-Out

 

"The scientific method is not a partisan issue, it's not something that should be divisive," said Harrison Hayward, a fourth-year UConn medical student organizing a Hartford rally, which will begin at noon at Mortensen Riverfront Plaza.

Scientists and academics in Connecticut and across the country will head out of the labs and into the streets on Saturday — Earth Day — to confront what one organizer described as a lack of respect for science among some members of Congress and President Donald Trump.


SPELL SCIENTIFIC METHOD
Harrison Hayward is today's poster boy for "Millennial With High IQ Who Flunks Critical Thinking 101" Because, well, he's suffered an average Millennial's education.  And become just another insufferable twat.

ASIDE:  When my old Blog blew up, I lost my list of  "Critical Thinkers," as Linda calls them.  So, when I wanted to go to the number one, most visited Scientific Method Climate Change site, I had a brain fart. Couldn't remember the name.  So I Googled Climate Science.  Nope.  So I tried "best climate change blogs."  And got this:



AHEM. "THINK PROGRESS" says it all.

Then, of a sudden, I remembered WATTS.  JAMES WATTS! So, if you're watching, Mr. Harrison Hayward, Start here.
