Vas ist los?

After posting "What is meant by the modern term referred to as ‘POLITICAL CORRECTNESSS’..", I sent an e-mail to she who sent it to me. MoSup.  To tell her it was bogus. This is what I got (using G-Mail)

And, for those offering advice on "I'm  MAD AS HELL!," re: Windows 10 refusing to recognize Irfan View's search program (Did I mention that?  Whoops.  No, I did not). But ...

  • "Sideload Apps" and "Developer" had nothing!
  • And,  Win MS have stripped away the "Open with..." option;
  • And will not let me select a Irfan Vu option.
And, I had previously reloaded the latest Irfan Vu package, and it worked ... for a short while.  And then it didn't.  Another reinstall wouldn't let me "search" at all.  And...I'm way past caring enought to grapple with using UNIX, or any other alternative.  MFCS!

Bless me Father ...

The Pope What?

Just saw this Drudge item.
Pope grants all priests power to forgive abortion...

Here's the deal.  R.C.  priests have, from day one, the power to forgive a penitent sinner of any and all confessed sin.  More to the point, in this case, if you're  not Catholic, who cares?  I have no interest in keeping up with pronouncements by, say, the Methodist Council of Bishops, because I'm not Methodist.  Nor would they be particularly interested in what Pope Francis has to say.  Oui?   So why do  the leftist secular press pay so much attention to this Pope's utterances?*


If I'm a rat bastard abortion (the Left's holy sacrament) activist, I'm terrified that President Trump will make good his promise to defund Planned Parenthood.   So, using their peculiar calculus, Pope Francis can be made to look like he's saying, hey, this is okay.

Oh. This is a CNN story.  Case closed.

*Aside I have in the past reacted negatively to several of PF's  pronouncements.  I  later discovered that the English translation had, either by design, or  by purpose,  been  mischaracterized.. 

See: Podesta discussed infiltrating the Catholic Church with progressive ideology to foment revolution; destroy the Catholic church from within.



What is meant by the modern term referred to as ‘POLITICAL CORRECTNESSS’..

The definition is found in 4 telegrams at the Truman Library and Museum in Independence, Missouri. The following are copies of four telegrams between President Harry Truman and Gen Douglas MacArthur on the day before the actual
signing of the WWII Surrender Agreement in September 1945..  The contents of those four telegrams below are exactly as received at the end of the war - not a word has been added or deleted!

(1) Tokyo, Japan
0800-September 1,1945
To: President Harry S Truman 
From: General D A MacArthur

Tomorrow we meet with those yellow-bellied bastards and sign the Surrender Documents, any last minute instructions?
(2) Washington, D C
1300-September 1, 1945
To: D A MacArthur
From: H S Truman 

     Congratulations, job well done, but you must tone down your obvious dislike of the Japanese when discussing the terms of the surrender with the press, becausesome of your remarks are fundamentally not politically correct!
(3) Tokyo, Japan 
1630-September 1, 1945
To: H S Truman
From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz

     Wilco Sir, but both Chester and I are somewhat confused, exactly what does the term politically correct mean?
(4) Washington, D C
2120-September 1, 1945
To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz
From: H S Truman
 Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!
Now, with special thanks to the Truman Museum and Harry himself, you and I finally have a full understanding of what ‘POLITICAL CORRECTNESS’ really means.....

I love it.  However, a search of the TrumanLiberry provides no such dialog.  Too bad, because it's essentially the troot.

Dan has some Balz ...


Oh, the hubris

This WaPost Analysis "Donald Trump, America’s first independent president" begins smartly enough:

Viewed through any conventional lens, President-elect Donald Trump’s candidacy was improbable from start to finish. Today, two things about his victory seem to be in sharper focus: one, that Trump’s victory might best be understood as the success of the country’s first independent president, and second, that the Trump coalition may be even more uniquely his than President Obama’s has turned out to be. "

But  Dan Balz quickly reverts, like the paranoid schizophrenic gone off his Lithium Kool-Aid, to the "fantasy."

" Think again about how he prevailed. There are a handful of major events during a general election that give the nominees a chance to showcase themselves, their judgment and their vision. One is the selection of a running mate. Another is the staging of the conventions. A third is performance in the debates. Hillary Clinton did better than Trump on all three tests, though Trump’s team believes the debates did not fall so decisively in her favor.

Clinton raised more money than Trump. She had a larger number of paid staffers on the ground in the battleground states. She ran more television ads by far. He created needless controversies throughout the general election, while her problems were far fewer. Only in the final days did he seem surer of himself.

In other words, Trump came out the loser on virtually every aspect of how campaigns are usually evaluated."

 "Her problems were far fewer..." GAK!  Rabid dog ...
