3 More nuts than a Pecan Pie!

Whose line is it?

Observations

This Monday will produce some SCOTUS rulings as will next. More to the news is rumors that another Judge may announce retirement.

Big cases, retirement rumors as Supreme Court nears finish

The Supreme Court enters its final week of work before a long summer hiatus with action expected on the Trump administration’s travel ban and a decision due in a separation of church and state case that arises from a Missouri church playground.

The biggest news of all, though, would be if Justice Anthony Kennedy were to use the court’s last public session on Monday to announce his retirement.

To be sure, Kennedy has given no public sign that he will retire this year and give President Donald Trump his second high court pick in the first months of his administration. Kennedy’s departure would allow conservatives to take firm control of the court. [snip]

Justice Kennedy will be 81 this summer, and there are rumors that he would like to retire. He’s been on the Supreme Court for 30 years.

Big Spenders

When the Progs have a chance to spend your money, there is nothing holding them back, NOTHING. The, in cahoots, Media tells the lies for them of how wonderful all is going and the FED merrily prints more money making the debt larger by the hour.

Happy Days Are Here Again. Not…from Rico

Both EBT and massive deficit spending (trillions of debt) have so far done almost as good a job of propping up a dead economy and ‘covering up’ what one could reasonably be called “Great Depression II” as the lying kept-whores of the MSM have.
– No breadlines to see here, so just move along.

Not being talked about, or even being considered by either the “media” (hah, I made myself laugh) or the Leftist’s favorite “economists” (oh noz, coffee came out of my nose with that one) is America’s GDP.
– The average GDP for the ten years from 1930 to 1939 during the “Great Depression” was 1.33%.
– The average GDP for the ten years from 2007 to 2016 during “Great Depression II” was 1.33%.

And even LESS talked about by the enemedia is the dual mandate of the FED to inflate financial assets while crushing working stiffs.
Of course, the FED is no more ‘federal’ than Federal Express being a privately-owned, for-profit, bank with an exclusive charter to counterfeit money [read: a servant and creature of the financial system, not main street]. (emphasis added)

So, given all this “news”, are you still keeping your money in dollars instead of hard capital, i.e. metal of some sort. Explain to me how something that cannot continue, will continue. At what point does our creditors cease buying our Treasuries and start redeeming the outstanding holdings? In order to sell new bonds, at what rate of interest will have to be offered to induce a sale?

At that point what is the USD worth? Will you be holding them? And where will the bankers, gnomes and trolls be living? And the politicians, do you think they will have stayed here with us?

Trump wants to cut the so called “entitlements” which the politicians for so long have used to buy votes. Either we cut them now or they’ll be totally gone in one huge bankrupt crash. There is always a choice á la Hobson. Not possible, look at Europe or  Venezuela. How about Greece as an example. Try China, they’re hiding it but not for long. They are trying to hide a Sunrise.

This what one gets with a one party system; there is no difference between the Donks and the GOPe.

Laissez le bon temps rouler

How long have you been waiting for this to occur? All the clangor from the Jackass Party an the Marxists (a redundancy) finally forced the issue.

Stick It In Your (Good) Ear

Yes, that’s an actual quote from Colbert.

We’d like to feign outrage at Stephen Colbert for his extended, gutter-language attack on President Trump on the CBS “Late Show,” but frankly we’ve come to expect this bottom-scraping level of discourse from the Left.

More than anything else, this incident has given us a moment of nostalgia for the days when obscenity wasn’t considered family entertainment. Specifically, we’re remembering when Jack Paar, the wildly popular host of “The Tonight Show” at the time, actually lost his job after he dared to utter the words “water closet” (a gentle euphemism for “bathroom,” as if one were needed) on his late night broadcast. How times have changed – and not for the better.

Mind you, when it comes to being garbage-mouthed, we can personally put Tourette’s patients to shame. But we’re not on a national stage, talking about the President of the United States. And in eight years of attacking Barack Obama, with cause, we never went quite as far as Colbert did. Except maybe that one Valentine’s Day when we mentioned that Barry and his “body man,” Reggie Love, could use Preperation-H to make their relationship even tighter.

Perhaps Colbert’s screed can be attributed to the well-documented ratings war between himself and his late night rival Jimmy Fallon. The race for first place is thought to boil down to (and “I kid you not,” as Paar used to say) which host can be the most vicious in his attacks on Trump. Or maybe the genuinely witty (but wildly liberal) Colbert has simply lost his mind after enduring 100 days of a President trying to make America great again.

We aren’t going to boycott Colbert, because we already don’t watch his show. But we hope he cleans up his act, and restricts his scatological outbursts to a more appropriate time and place.

We’re thinking the water closet.

We have no idea, however, if he also has asymmetrical nuts.

BONUS: AND SPEAKING OF WATER CLOSETS…

In keeping with our reflection on the once-genteel nature of popular entertainment, we thought it would be fun to share a bit of movie trivia we recently discovered.

Back in 1960, Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film”Psycho” was the first American movie (let alone TV show) to show a toilet being flushed. Audiences were shocked and horrified, even though the commode (oops, there goes our late night TV career) was only being used to dispose of torn scraps of paper.

Not even toilet paper. And definitely not used toilet paper. Which could probably get its own late night show these days.

The film that changed the whirl of motion pictures!
