It's one of those dirty jobs. Kudos to Trump for taking it on.

EDH said...

Fact check of Meade: Zero roosters crowing! Down to the tax cuts!

But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be YUGE, therefore, as your heavenly Father is YUGE.

- Matthew 5:43-48

Trump is interesting. He is always doing battle space preparation for the next negotiation.

I'm guessing that this is the hope-n-change Obama promised us.

Does OED say anything about the proper form of pee-er? Peer doesn't really work, nor peeer. Pee'er? Someone suggested the umlaut, thus Peër. Kind of like having to use the umlaut.

Consensus on this will be much needed in the new year.

Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you - all the women of the world will even let you grab them by the pussy,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’

Of course. Presbyterians are predestined. So since it all works together for good, why not love your defeated opponents. God made them too.and God likes us to show mercy to the living ones.

Bay Area Guy said...

@ARM,

Heh - laughed out loud at that one!

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs..

...but if thy love should wane or falter - thou must grab them by thy pussy!

1 Corinthians 13:5 (Amended)

I missed it where Trump or his supporters ever acted like or implied that Trump was god-like. We saw that from the One, but not Trump, even if we were treated to his huge ego.

I did not miss, however, the deluge of infantile references to the female crotch, no doubt replete with giggling by the people typing it here like a bunch of six year olds.

Reportedly, Jesus kissed Mary Magdalene often. He was a star. So she let him!

Not my understanding of Presbyterian theology in the least. Indeed, I would suggest that Roman Catholicism, and, esp. Islam, are more so (which is part of why Muslims are so horribly bad at innovation, except when it comes to violence against infidels). Part of the Reformation was a reaction against Roman Catholic predestination, which was arguably part of their theology in order to keep the masses happy with their state. Born a serf, die a serf. Nothing you can do about it, except live your life in faith as a serf. The Protestants, and esp. the Calvinists, believed that you actually could benefit in this world from your good works, and, therefore, getting rich was not, in itself, sinful. Which is, in itself, a big step away from predestination, and, arguably, a good part of why this country has been so great at innovation.

madAsHell said...

I'm also guessing that Trump's first signature achievement won't be "Cash for Clunkers".

Mark said...

And now, in addition to the infantile references to women's crotches and the highly offensive inclusion of Jesus in those references, we have once again complete ignorance of the Catholic Church and teachings on display.

Passive Fatalism is not In Calvin's Presbyterianism. The freedom to keep your own property from the Holy Roman Empire's approved Kings tax collectors is the Unalienable right that we are predestined for. That and victory.

You've never actually read any Catholic theologians, have you?

Actually, among the early Protestant Reformers (e.g. Luther & Calvin), they were much more into predestination than than the Catholics. Immediately post Luther, the Lutherans settle into a doctrine of Predestination fairly close to the Catholics. The Calvinists, on the other hand, go very heavily into a detailed theology of predestination. The Protestant reaction against the "invasive" predestination of the Calvinists is called Arminianism. Probably the most important reformers to espouse Arminianism are the Wesley brother, the founders of Methodism.

There is, in Catholic history or theology, no understanding that folks should stay where they were born in terms of "caste". None, absolutely none. Matter of fact, the clerical orders were often used as a stepping stone by the lowers classes who would place a bright boy or girl with a religious order in order that they could be educated & rise above their birth class. Europe at the time was run by a feudal aristocracy, & no one, including the Christian churches, woke up one fine morning & thought "Hey, wait! I've just thought up another way of organizing society!". And that very emphatically includes the Reformers, e.g. Martin Luther, who supported the German nobility as they massacred over 100,000 German peasants in the German Peasants Revolt of 1524.

Off topic, but I voted for Trump

What is going on with his HHS pick Tom Price and his trading of health care stocks while at the same time sponsoring legislation(Ways and Means health panel) affecting such stocks?

What the hell would prompt someone to engage in activity that might have the appearance of impropriety, poor judgement?

If he violated the STOCK Act he should withdraw from consideration. This is not on DT, but if he truly wishes to drain the swamp, this might be a fatal flaw for his HHS pick.

"Fuck you, Donald Trump.

Fuck you for being a hypersensitive, grossly plump caricature of a human being; a squirming mass of cockroaches lurking under a skinsuit veneer.

Fuck your wanton plundering of our social fabric, your willingness to tear down the structure that allows you to exist, your glorification of the worst parts of humanity, all in the name of your own insatiable greed and depravity.

Fuck your racebaiting, fearmongering, Nazi-enabling rhetoric that allows the darkest and most destructive corners of our collective zeitgeist free reign to terrorize the rest.
Fuck your ignorant paucity of intellect, your narcissistic belief in your own ego, your inability to recognize your own descent into fascism.

Fuck your promotions of white supremacists to positions of power, of science denying crackpots to oversee our future, of bootlicking toadies to oversee your transition.
Fuck your misogynistic views on women’s rights, fuck your archaic beliefs on the freedom of press and religion, and fuck your idiotic venality when it comes to the destruction of a country that, while not always achieving freedom for all of its citizens, has done the best to get there in the entirety of recorded human history.
Fuck you, Melania Trump.

Fuck you for being willing to support this disgusting slime mold because it means you can live a life of privilege and luxury, never mind the hardships that will befall women across this nation due to your husband’s philistinic views..."

@Sunsong,

fuck your archaic beliefs on the freedom of press and religion,

Oooops! Your boy snuck that in the verbiage where he thought we weren't looking. Those "archaic beliefs" are referred to by the rest of us as 'Our First Amendment Rights".

Bullshit like this is why your side lost, Sunsong. And some clown saying "Fuck" a million-bazillion times isn't going to change anything, now or in the future. A good place to start might be purging the Stalinists like this guy out of your ranks.

Quote from yesterday from a blog owner who was an early supporter of Trump: "I think it is giving California's lunatic left entirely too much credit to assume they are sincere in any beliefs. So, here is a three-step plan for the God-Emperor to Make America Great Again." OF course, he often speaks tongue-in-cheek to lambaste the left, so I assume referring to Trump in this manner is sarcasm directed at anti-Trumpers

It is amusing to watch the lefties quadruple down on the silly and self-defeating tactics that got them into this position in the first place.

They simply have no mechanism to allow for a feedback loop with which they can adapt and course correct.

Under that constraint it is inevitable the rhetoric of the left will only be amplified as evidenced by our resident Lefty know-nothings here.

It's like watching a controlled experiment in real time with unaware subjects.

@Big Mike said...
He does know how to use the needle, doesn't he?

No doubt. But I haven't heard which illicit drug he uses to get high. We can also speculate that he is on a dangerous SSRI anti-depressant often used to treat obsessive-compulsive disorders - maybe Citalopram, the only drug SSRI that can be taken intravenously.

Trump's pacing back and forth onstage at the second debate with Hillary certainly was not a natural habit. He likely had taken something to bring on such a state.

Jon Ericson said...

@AprilApple,

"Dear CA - Please break off and float over to North Korea now.

You know, that was Lex Luthor's plot in the first Superman Movie with Christopher Reeve (1978). He bought up all the cheap land in Fresno, Stockton and Bakersfield, then shot a missile to hit the San Andreas Fault to break off the California coast into the sea, while all his property skyrocketed in value.

Please give me a heads up before this happens - unlike my Leftist neighbors, I voted for Trump!

harrogate said...

Drago's right: the fact that people who didn't vote for Trump remain opposed to him is evidence of why Trump won.

I hope the republicans learn from Trump. While I doubt most of them can get away with his particular style that have to learn to be unafraid to go on offense. Trey Gowdy is good at it, and others can be too. Don't be afraid to be mean to democrats, almost all of them wouldn't hesitate to be mean to the republicans. I think democrat Senator Ron Wyden from Oregon is a notable exception. He seems like a genuinely decent person. So be nice to Ron Wyden.

Comanche Voter said...

Well Obama ran--and one on "hope and change". And after eight years of no hope, Obama finally delivered on change. And the delivery mechanism was prepping the battle space for the advent of the Orange Haired Bronx Buffoon.

I was never an anti Trump guy. I noted the vulgaritu--which repelled many of my liberal friends; I noted the braggadocio (although Trump never claimed he could stop the oceans from rising) and the shoot from the lip style. The deciding issue for me was the perennial prevarication from the Pantsuit Princess. If you can't stop lying, you can't get my vote.

Well for better (or maybe worse--we'll see) Obama has finally delivered Change. And Change's name is Donald Trump.

"This makes me throw up a little in my mouth."

On November 9, I congratulated my boss for having a "bad feeling" the day before about the election. I was sure it would be Hillary. He wasn't so sure. He said when the first returns from Michigan came in, he went to the kitchen and threw up his dinner.

I was very disappointed when Obama one in 08 and even more so in 2012. I thought it was a disaster when the ACA passed in 2010, because once done, a behemoth like that is nearly impossible to undo. Still, I managed easily to keep my food down those three times. When the Republicans won Congress in 2010, I was confident they could keep Obama contained for the duration. They did a pretty good, if inelegant, job of that.

Some of you folks on the left side of the fence take things much harder than you need to. The country has survived a civil war and many presidents. We will survive Trump, the ACA, and Colin Kaepernick.

@Gadfly,

You do not know what you are talking about.

Citalopram is not indicated as a treatment for OCD. Luvox has been traditionally prescribed, although its effectiveness is questionable. Both are SSRI antidepressants.

OCD is an anxiety disorder that responds poorly to SSRIs. Sometimes anxiolytics provide temporary help, but they are likely to make someone sluggish, not hyper. In my experience as a clinical psychologist, systematic desensitization is the most effective treatment for OCD.

BTW, being a bit OCD is not necessarily bad. It depends on your job and whether it has a negative or positive impact on your life. I want engineers and surgeons to be a little OCD. Lives are often at stake.

Which is why it's great that Trump ran on such conservative principles, like: Trade wars, tariffs, infrastructure spending, the working class/working poor, keeping key provisions of the ACA, non-intervention, etc.

The best thing Trump did was to put the conservative Republicans into an identity crisis, where endorsing him now means going along with key progressive items.

Chuck said...

Drago;
Before we get into 2017, I just want to say how much I am looking forward to the day when Trump and his campaign promises run right smack into conservative Republicans, in the person(s) of conservatives in Congress, in the cabinet, and at the conservative think tanks like Heritage, Heartland, Manhattan and AEI.
And Trump's natural allies may become, on discrete deaaking topics, the Democrats.
I'll assuredly be on the side of the conservatives/Republicans. And opposed to Trump and the Democrats.
If that day never comes, it will only be because Trump has abandoned some of his most significant promises. In which case I will again express my great satisfaction.

(between drinks here) and this i guess is the point where you start pointing fingers instead of commenting... happy new year anyway and i hope trump and his gang are the answer to your prayers... we are all in this together and your triumph will be mine also... so go get 'em ... as davey crockett used to say 'make sure you're right, then go ahead'

MadAsHell@10:20 has the salient point about Trump. He is in constant battle space prep for the next negotiation.
The left, and media,(I repeat myself) know this simple concept, but speaking of it, validates Trump and that will never happen for the next 8 years.

exiledonmainstreet said...

GWash, Trump was not my first, second or third choice in the primaries, but I very happily voted for him when the choice was between the Queens loudmouth and the Hag of Chappaqua. So I fully expect him to disappoint me at times. Hillary would have done things I hated 100% of the time, so I don't think I will regret my vote - in fact the ongoing hysteria and complete lack of self-awareness exhibited by Trump haters have assured me that the vote I cast in November was the correct one.

Happy New Years to all.

Hell, there have been times when I have bitterly regretted my votes for Duyba. The only good thing produced by the pathetic speech of the Secretariat of State this past week was to confirm that no, actually, I did not make a mistake when I voted against that detestable horse-faced mediocrity in 2004.

The DNC sacrificed the party on the altar of Hillary's personal sense of entitlement,
so maybe somebody should save a Fuck You for them. Hillary, had she won, would have been the best gosh-darned president money could buy.

Freder Frederson said...

he called a trump landslide back in july.. well, you can't be right all the time... but he did call the winner...

He claimed Trump was going to get 85% of the vote. He was spectacularly wrong, but I guess not as wrong as Althouse, who was banking on a Scott Walker win.

How can so many people still be so willfully ignorant that"grab by the pussy" is a metaphor. I've tried that literal action and it doesn't really work. I thought lefties understood nuancey things like metaphor.

Trump's new year tweet reminds me of those New Yorker cartoons showing what people are thinking and what certain animals with one-track minds are thinking. But he has two tracks: winner/loser, winner/loser, winner/loser, love (euphemism).

No Steven, we will stay put and make "Huge" changes that the alt-right will hate (I hope)

Oh. So your comparison was pointless.

Sounds about right.

Are there any other comparisons that don't work that you'd care to mention?

Steven Davis said...

Vicki, I hate to be the one to break it to you, but the "alt-right" is a figment of your imagination. I'm sure that they exist, as much as I'm sure that the KKK still does, but as a percentage of voters, they may as well not. You need to separate your rhetoric from your reality. Trump was not elected by the alt-right, or the kkk, or for that matter, by what is left of the tea party. Trump was elected by folks that you hoped would vote for Hillary. HNY Vicki, I hear Canada is lovely this time of year.

Jon Ericson said...

Perhaps Trump when he tweeted was thinking of his run in on Friday with biographer Harry Hurt III at his golf course in Florida. Trump required Hurt to leave with the rest of his golfing foursome. Which just created a headline and gave them all a story to dine out on for months. And gave the rest of us a reason to look up the long out of print bio in which Hurt wrote things like the fact that first wife Ivana "confided to female friends that Donald had difficulty achieving and maintaining an erection." Why does winner Trump want to do stuff like that?

Since you have never had a wife, let alone an ex-wife, you have no ida how stories about ex-husbands get spread around.

Bruce Hayden :

Not my understanding of Presbyterian theology in the least. Indeed, I would suggest that Roman Catholicism, and, esp. Islam, are more so (which is part of why Muslims are so horribly bad at innovation, except when it comes to violence against infidels). Part of the Reformation was a reaction against Roman Catholic predestination, which was arguably part of their theology in order to keep the masses happy with their state. Born a serf, die a serf. Nothing you can do about it, except live your life in faith as a serf. The Protestants, and esp. the Calvinists, believed that you actually could benefit in this world from your good works, and, therefore, getting rich was not, in itself, sinful. Which is, in itself, a big step away from predestination, and, arguably, a good part of why this country has been so great at innovation.

Lolwut?

You've never actually read any Catholic theologians, have you?

Actually, among the early Protestant Reformers (e.g. Luther & Calvin), they were much more into predestination than than the Catholics. Immediately post Luther, the Lutherans settle into a doctrine of Predestination fairly close to the Catholics. The Calvinists, on the other hand, go very heavily into a detailed theology of predestination. The Protestant reaction against the "invasive" predestination of the Calvinists is called Arminianism. Probably the most important reformers to espouse Arminianism are the Wesley brother, the founders of Methodism.

There is, in Catholic history or theology, no understanding that folks should stay where they were born in terms of "caste". None, absolutely none. Matter of fact, the clerical orders were often used as a stepping stone by the lowers classes who would place a bright boy or girl with a religious order in order that they could be educated & rise above their birth class. Europe at the time was run by a feudal aristocracy, & no one, including the Christian churches, woke up one fine morning & thought "Hey, wait! I've just thought up another way of organizing society!". And that very emphatically includes the Reformers, e.g. Martin Luther, who supported the German nobility as they massacred over 100,000 German peasants in the German Peasants Revolt of 1524.

Margaret and George said...

The BBC News (UK) showed a screen shot of the tweet and the newsreader read the words but omitted "including to" thereby putting a rather snidey slant on Mr Trump's greetings. If it were anyone else but the BBC I would accept that it was an innocent mistake.

aritai said...

So what's the endgame for Mr. P. and T? Neither particularly like borders and regulation that add costs and interfere with the free enterprise by a free people, and add totally unnecessary costs for feeding the elite pigsty, in the era of hashtag conversance. George Soros could only dream so big. The U.S. grew out of some notion of federalism with some simple rules for their interaction what was permissible and not in terms of dictating to their people. Perhaps the United Countries of the World the UCW. Soon to include the moon and mars. The current situation is just too enabling of the elites and preventing people from reaching their full potential and advancing the betterment of all mankind. Take that you communist, Mr. Soros. Why not dream big, once you’ve set the model for fixing a country that was only going down the toilet, but those already in the sewage processing plant. It’s only software and at the end of the day, easy to replicate. And if it’s just replicated, all the parts fit together and are easy to fix when the gears don’t mesh.
