Little Green Footballs’ Top Story of the Day was not Hurricane Harvey, The Houston Floods, the Berkeley Antifa Riots, or North Korea’s Missile Launch over Japan.

For some inexplicable reason, all the important news that happened since this past Friday evaded Charles Johnson’s radar, except for a screencap of Keith Olbermann detecting a pungent yeast infection emanating from somewhere in Culver City.

THAT’S the top story at Little Green Footballs.

Pheeew.

    The idea that anyone would pay $1200 to hear this unlikeable, corrupt and incompetent loser screech about her inept campaign is beyond comprehension. I predict this tour will tank, just like her last two runs for office. No matter how much the media tries to shove her down our throats, We The People just don’t like you, Shrillary. Please just go away.

      Hard to tell, the Hillary worshipers I know would consider it a bargain to be in her presence for a mere $1200.

      • rightymouse says:

        How many Hillary groupies actually have $1200 to blow like that?

        • windbag says:

          Unfortunately, I know several. I say unfortunately, because I grew up with these lefties and have no idea what happened to them that caused them to lose all reason. With them, it’s more than a philosophical difference of opinion about the role of government in our private lives. They are the soulless core of the worst of the Democrats. Full of hate and contempt for anything to their right. Pro-abortion every step of the way. They think Ashley Judd’s performance during the inauguration protests was breathtakingly truthful, poignant, and sane. How people so brain-damaged have amassed small fortunes is beyond me.

    Simple facts for simple minds:
    1. Harvey was the first major hurricane to make landfall in the US in 142 months, which is a record drought.
    2. We have always had hurricanes, and we will always have hurricanes, as long as the Earth keeps spinning on its axis.
    3. STFU

    • Arachne says:

      Dear NoFucksChuck — the top 10 deadliest hurricanes ever to hit the U.S. only include two “named” storms – Katrina and Audrey. The other 8 occurred BEFORE hurricanes were even named. So Betsy, Camille, Andrew, Diane – aren’t even in the top ten.

      So shut the fuck up.

      Oh, and by the way, FATSO, when I was a toddler growing up in North Carolina, before the age of 3 I survived three major hurricanes – Hazel, Carol and Diane. Occured in 1954 and 1955. So yeah, shut the fuck up.

        Not just Fatso. Daily Mail decided to hyperventilate about it too. Idiots.

        • Arachne says:

          BTW – unless Fatso was at Andrews and took the pictures himself. he isn’t tracking back to the SOURCE of the photo, but back to HIS website. So he’s essentially appropriating someone else’s work for the clicks.

            As usual…. posing as something he is not. Gee – such a surprise!

            The man child is jealous of everyone and everything around him. Melania wants to look her best and feel her best so wears the shoes that make her feel that way. And, she looks great whether in high heels or tennies.

            Charles, the bloated out of shape loudmouth wouldn’t know the first thing about any of this.

            So – onward with your misogynistic bullshit Charles.

    • Bunk X says:

      • Octopus says:

        The call went out yesterday to all libturd media outlets, to trash Melania for wearing heels as she got on the plane. Of course, she was wearing Keds when she got off the plane in Texas, but that’s outside the narrative, so bury that detail and destroy all the photos. The maroons! 😆

        • Arachne says:

          And since they weren’t able to snipe at her footwear, they went after her wearing a hat that said “FLOTUS” – which, had it been on Mooch’s ugly cabeze, would have been gushed over as “cute” and “clever.”

    Hey Chunk even some on the left are disgusted with this behavior and have said so. We note you have no problem with it yet continue to pretend Trump supporters are violent as they’re being beaten by the fascist ironically named Antifa.

    Wow. Kathy Griffin continues to double down and confirms she really is a psycho. She blames Trump supporters then laments Chelsea Clinton and Debra Messing tweeting against her then blames the Trump family. Evidently decapitating the POTUS in effigy is not to blame.

      Of course she’s not sorry. She never was. She figured it would blow over and she’d be reinstated. Anderson Cooper has refused to have her back. Now she claims she can’t tour in the U.S. for fear of her safety. Oh please. She can’t tour in the U.S. because no venue will BOOK her.

      • rightymouse says:

        People like Griffin have no center core of decency/personal responsibility & completely lack the ability to intuit other people’s reaction to their despicable behavior.

He literally tweeted that about a man who built a media empire and left a loving family. And remember AB tried to help Chunk0 who now has a reputation as a traitor and a turncoat. IOW a piece of shit.

  11. Trump is Teh HORROR!- Chunky McDumbth, #1Olberdouche Fan Boy. says:

    Ha! The comical knuckle dragging mouth breathers on anti-Trump CNN of course blame the storm Harvey on climate change. Because uh…science!

    http://legalinsurrection.com/2017/08/hurricane-harvey-cnn-fingers-climate-change/

    Funny that when citing NOAA, the CNN folks failed to mention NOAA’s observation that in June of this year, a record was set of 140 straight months without a major hurricane hitting the continental United States.

    Now that’s what we’d call . . . an inconvenient truth.

    Note: Cuomo’s observation that it seems we now have 100-year storms every year of so was singularly nonsensical. There are countless thousands of geographical locations in the United States. It is utterly normal and predictable that, each year, some of them will experience 100-year events.

    • Arachne says:

      The HUNDRED YEAR STORM!?? Does that mean that Bodie is at Bell’s Beach, Australia, “waitin’ for [his] set”?

    • Octopus says:

      They are shamelessly stupid and corrupt. True Believers are like that, completely unable to see the evidence that totally debunks their precious dogma, in this case Anthropogenic Global Warming. They changed the name to Climate Change because they can’t explain why we still have winter and snow and all that jazz, and now every weather event can be jammed into their “body of evidence” for the catastrophic Warmening Shitnado.

    He is ignorant on most subjects.

    And yet – – he is an expert and authority on so many topics.

    Paying the price for breakdown of the country’s bourgeois culture
    Updated: AUGUST 9, 2017 — 4:56 PM EDT

    Films in the 1950s and ’60s, such as John Ford’s “The Searchers,” starring John Wayne, reinforced the prevailing bourgeois culture.

    by Amy Wax & Larry Alexander

    Too few Americans are qualified for the jobs available. Male working-age labor-force participation is at Depression-era lows. Opioid abuse is widespread. Homicidal violence plagues inner cities. Almost half of all children are born out of wedlock, and even more are raised by single mothers. Many college students lack basic skills, and high school students rank below those from two dozen other countries.

    The causes of these phenomena are multiple and complex, but implicated in these and other maladies is the breakdown of the country’s bourgeois culture.

    That culture laid out the script we all were supposed to follow: Get married before you have children and strive to stay married for their sake. Get the education you need for gainful employment, work hard, and avoid idleness. Go the extra mile for your employer or client. Be a patriot, ready to serve the country. Be neighborly, civic-minded, and charitable. Avoid coarse language in public. Be respectful of authority. Eschew substance abuse and crime.

    These basic cultural precepts reigned from the late 1940s to the mid-1960s. They could be followed by people of all backgrounds and abilities, especially when backed up by almost universal endorsement. Adherence was a major contributor to the productivity, educational gains, and social coherence of that period.

    Did everyone abide by those precepts? Of course not. There are always rebels — and hypocrites, those who publicly endorse the norms but transgress them. But as the saying goes, hypocrisy is the homage vice pays to virtue. Even the deviants rarely disavowed or openly disparaged the prevailing expectations.

    Was everything perfect during the period of bourgeois cultural hegemony? Of course not. There was racial discrimination, limited sex roles, and pockets of anti-Semitism. However, steady improvements for women and minorities were underway even when bourgeois norms reigned. Banishing discrimination and expanding opportunity does not require the demise of bourgeois culture. Quite the opposite: The loss of bourgeois habits seriously impeded the progress of disadvantaged groups. That trend also accelerated the destructive consequences of the growing welfare state, which, by taking over financial support of families, reduced the need for two parents. A strong pro-marriage norm might have blunted this effect. Instead, the number of single parents grew astronomically, producing children more prone to academic failure, addiction, idleness, crime, and poverty.

    This cultural script began to break down in the late 1960s. A combination of factors — prosperity, the Pill, the expansion of higher education, and the doubts surrounding the Vietnam War — encouraged an antiauthoritarian, adolescent, wish-fulfillment ideal — sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll — that was unworthy of, and unworkable for, a mature, prosperous adult society. This era saw the beginnings of an identity politics that inverted the color-blind aspirations of civil rights leaders like the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. into an obsession with race, ethnicity, gender, and now sexual preference.

    And those adults with influence over the culture, for a variety of reasons, abandoned their role as advocates for respectability, civility, and adult values. As a consequence, the counterculture made great headway, particularly among the chattering classes — academics, writers, artists, actors, and journalists — who relished liberation from conventional constraints and turned condemning America and reviewing its crimes into a class marker of virtue and sophistication.

    All cultures are not equal. Or at least they are not equal in preparing people to be productive in an advanced economy. The culture of the Plains Indians was designed for nomadic hunters, but is not suited to a First World, 21st-century environment. Nor are the single-parent, antisocial habits, prevalent among some working-class whites; the anti-“acting white” rap culture of inner-city blacks; the anti-assimilation ideas gaining ground among some Hispanic immigrants. These cultural orientations are not only incompatible with what an advanced free-market economy and a viable democracy require, they are also destructive of a sense of solidarity and reciprocity among Americans. If the bourgeois cultural script — which the upper-middle class still largely observes but now hesitates to preach — cannot be widely reinstated, things are likely to get worse for us all.

    Would the re-embrace of bourgeois norms by the ordinary Americans who have abandoned them significantly reduce society’s pathologies? There is every reason to believe so. Among those who currently follow the old precepts, regardless of their level of education or affluence, the homicide rate is tiny, opioid addiction is rare, and poverty rates are low. Those who live by the simple rules that most people used to accept may not end up rich or hold elite jobs, but their lives will go far better than they do now. All schools and neighborhoods would be much safer and more pleasant. More students from all walks of life would be educated for constructive employment and democratic participation.

    But restoring the hegemony of the bourgeois culture will require the arbiters of culture — the academics, media, and Hollywood — to relinquish multicultural grievance polemics and the preening pretense of defending the downtrodden. Instead of bashing the bourgeois culture, they should return to the 1950s posture of celebrating it.

      Am an avid reader of published town histories from mostly New England – Maine, Massachusetts, etc. I love reading them because they give such fabulous insight into the places and people of the 1600’s, 1700’s and 1800’s – the struggles and the advancements of each generation, including insights into what worked and what didn’t.

      • Octopus says:

        That sounds fascinating. I’ve read a lot of historical accounts from the western frontier, going back to the first trappers and explorers. Well, the Indians, too. What strikes me about these people of a few hundred years back, is that they are the exact same as us, as far as intelligence and emotions, along with basic human physical abilities, but they had to deal with a very different world. Survival was an iffy thing. No safety nets to speak of. Deadly threats around every corner, from killing diseases we had no medicine for, to bears and savage natives. Yes, I called them savages. Noble savages. 😉

        • rightymouse says:

          One of the big differences between the settlers that came here and the Indians is that, with their freedom, the immigrant families were able to meet and then exceed the life-styles of the average guy in Europe in about a few generations. The Indians basically lived in squalor & had not progressed much generation after generation. Hubby says that had to do with our private property order that the Indians obviously didn’t have & that’s why they didn’t dig wells or have pillows & curtains in their tepees.

          • Octopus says:

            They did get lots of fresh air and exercise, though. 😉

            Not to downplay the tragedy of their demise, of course. They were rudely displaced. It was inevitable, but still incredibly sad.

          • rightymouse says:

            Agreed. But life on the reservations hasn’t been exactly stellar either. Assimilation may have been a better goal?

    Unbelievable that the thoroughly butthurt, snivelling Left in this country (including the liars of the MSM) are making such a big deal of the semantics used by President Trump. His use of the words “first hand” IS ACCURATE. He fucking flew down there and met with everyone who is leading the rescue effort. Did he, like a total attention whore, bluster into Houston and create havoc with his security entourage? No. He stayed the EFF out of the way for the sake of the people who are suffering in this disaster.

    Yet the immature little bitches of the MSM and elsewhere (oh hey Charles) are beside themselves because of his choice of words.

    These people are the most petty, most stupid liars in this country and everyone knows it. This is truly unbelievable.

    This response to what the President is doing is shameful and disgusting.

    Hey Charles, you are our representative turd in this case.

    Go fuck yourself loser.

    I watched this movie on Netflix last night. I recommend it. The acting was really good. Except for Keanu who is stiff and wooden as usual but it was OK. His role didn’t require a lot of depth. People forget he’s only an actor because he was one of the super cute kids in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. The really dumb one.

    I also watched the first two episodes of this.

    I noticed it had Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara, two of my favorite Canadian comedians from Second City. I immediately thought the casting is great because the son literally resembled Eugene (the father character). Then I realized it actually IS HIS SON. Daniel Levy who’s also a co-producer with his dad. It also has Chris Elliot who is his usual creepy weirdo self. I’m going to watch the rest of these.

      The entire world population would fit in Texas with a density of 27,362 people per square mile. Manila’s population density is four times that (107,562/sq. mi.). Why am I not worried? Since the time when the lefties were screaming about over-population in the 1970s, human population has thrived as it has doubled. I don’t think any of the lefties’ predictive models work.

    Update from Houston. I have a kind of “Survivor’s Guilt” thing going at the moment. The place where I live stayed dry (second floor apartment) however the parking lot was flooded to a depth of about nine inches on three separate occasions. So all car mats soaked but the extremely vital electronic Engine Control Unit was not damaged. Oh, why is the fucking thing on the floor under the front seat not high up under the hood snuggled next to the engine?

    Car is worth $600 I would not have lost much..

    Food…. Well I had stocked up on granola bars, fresh fruit, beer, wine, a little bottle of water, canned tuna, avocados, flour tortillas and those Hormel Compleats dinners that do not need refrigeration.

    Had the usual stuff in the freezer, a pizza, Chinese meals and some zip lock bags of “Mystery Meals” (leftovers of what I do not know) If the power went out everything in the freezer would be useless. No way to cook it.

    Fortunately I never lost power or internet once during the last week so for me life went on as usual. No need to eat fresh fruit and granola bars. Going to donate all that girly shit to a girl tomorrow 🙂

    So, I feel very lucky.

    My local Walmart has been opening at about 3pm and closing at 6pm for the last two days so life is good. However……….

    Today on the way home from work I did not go there. It will be hell, long lines at the checkouts. People stocking up. After surviving Harvey there is no way I am going to fear for my life in Walmart tonight. It is not worth the risk.

    Why is that you may ask?

    First of the month. EBT cards get re-filled. No sane person goes to my local neighborhood Walmart on the first of the month!!!

    (Don’t worry, I got a nice bottle of gas station Merlot on the way home. Will go great with a can of tuna and a granola bar.. ) LOL

    Heh. The missus has a party coming up with all her high-school buddies and their spouses. They’re a diverse group in every sense of the word, and I get along with most of them ( I tolerate the others). She axed me to track down a MAGA hat for her to wear just to irritate a couple of them.

    Turns out the manufacturer of the official Trump campaign hats is located in Carson California, and employs mostly hispanics citizens. He was creating jobs even while he was campaigning.

    http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-ca-trump-hats-cali-fame-carson-20151124-story.html

    The story is good, if you can stomach some stuff like this:
    “Donald Trump’s hats have quickly become a signature totem of the 2016 campaign, a kitsch magnet that serves ironic hipsters and sincere supporters alike. The red-and-white caps are emblazoned with the real estate mogul’s oft-repeated slogan, “Make America Great Again.”

    But look around the factory floor where these hats are being made by the thousands, and you’ll find faces that don’t seem to fit into Trump’s America.”

    And that was written a year BEFORE the election.

    My daughters are trying to make their way back home tonight for the holiday weekend. One had the kid car (a Kia Soul) in Danville and made her way to Bowling Green to pick up sister. Fingers crossed with all this rain and flooding. That car is so damn light we’ve been warning them about hydroplaning and to back out rather than cross a spontaneous body of water. Also my wife looked up the cops in the counties they’re crossing so they can call them if they get in trouble. Are we overprotective or what?? :). LOL! They’re 18 (twins). When I was that age I drove home in blizzards in a beater and no one gave a shit. Ha! They were like hey glad you made it.

    down in Texas in epic battle of underboob!

            Florida, on the other hand, has about ten players suspended. WTF?
