Shot Fired At Trump Rally

Funny, when Obama was running for President, a number of liberal friends predicted/worried he would be assassinated/attempted assassinated because he was black. I guess they saw Mississippi Burning too many times as a youngster and can't differentiate between 1955 Mississippi and 2008-2016 America. But, whatever.

I wonder where they'll stand on this.

Obama's been a failure in terms of Middle East policy. 

He'll leave the place in considerably worse shape than he inherited it.

The Onion or the New York Times

They NYT tries to do a hit piece on Trump. My favorite bit:
He simultaneously nurtured women’s careers and mocked their physical appearance. “You like your candy,” he told an overweight female executive who oversaw the construction of his headquarters in Midtown Manhattan.
Are they trying to get me to vote for him?

Old Shit

An incredibly prescient letter written in 1969 about the effects of "affirmative action," ie quotas.
No one can be expected to accept an inferior status willingly. The black students, unable to compete on even terms in the study of law, inevitably will seek other means to achieve recognition and self-expression. This is likely to take two forms. First, agitation to change the environment from one in which they are unable to compete to one in which they can. Demands will be made for elimination of competition, reduction in standards of performance, adoption of courses of study which do not require intensive legal analysis, and recognition for academic credit of sociological activities which have only an indirect relationship to legal training. Second, it seems probable that this group will seek personal satisfaction and public recognition by aggressive conduct, which, although ostensibly directed at external injustices and problems, will in fact be primarily motivated by the psychological needs of the members of the group to overcome feelings of inferiority caused by lack of success in their studies. Since the common denominator of the group of students with lower qualifications is one of race this aggressive expression will undoubtedly take the form of racial demands–the employment of faculty on the basis of race, a marking system based on race, the establishment of a black curriculum and a black law journal, an increase in black financial aid, and a rule against expulsion of black students who fail to satisfy minimum academic standards.
See the campus protests this year. I'm always amazed at how smart the old timers were about things in general.

A story about Venezuela where they lack toilet paper and are putting a businessman in jail because of it. This story would be funny if it weren't true. Anyone with firm liberal redistributive beliefs ought to seriously examine the last 15 years of Venezuelan social history as a case study of what happens when these ideas are put into practice in the real world. But I very highly doubt many of them will. Instead, they will vote Bernie.

This Doesn't Smell Right

A 24-year old artist who painted a naked micro-penised Donald Trump claims she was assaulted off La Cienega Blvd in Los Angeles.

Here's what makes no sense:

-To know who this "artist" is would require being quite an infovore. I didn't know who she was. You'd have to be following the internet pretty close to be able to spot her.

-The type of person who would pull over and randomly punch a girl for political reasons would be pretty rare indeed.

-The type of person who would do both...that is, know an internet artist and be willing to randomly assault her on the street in Los Angeles...I don't buy it. Are there really that many passionate Trump supporters in LA in this age bracket?

I don't buy it.

Widespread Mental Illness

Taking over America one bathroom at a time. Yes.

I got a newsflash: if I need to go, the men's bathroom is full, and the women's is empty, I go in already...
Alcohol Consumption Habits Learned Young

My takeaway: we should all drink more wine with others.

Film: Get Hard

Better than Keanu at examining perceptions and misperceptions of black ghetto culture. Surprisingly witty film. I'd take this over Bulworth and Keanu combined.

And the scenes of Will Farrell doing capoeira cracked me up.
