So bad that another MSM journalist, from Associated Press (!), says WP story is a lie. http://hotair.com/archives/2017/03/31/avert-your-eyes-ap-reporter-says-sensational-wapo-claim-on-tillerson-not-true/

Drunk, stupid, or funny
Which is it regarding John Claude Juncker’s threat to break up the United States, specifically mentioning Austin, TX, and Ohio? Whaaaat? Silly threat and uncognizant of USA realities. I think he was drunk. Stupid is in 2nd place. Making a bad joke very distant third. Referencing a city and a state suggests loosened inhibitions, which is why I vote drunkenness.
Spoiling for a fight; did not get one
I received a fundraising telephone call from the university attended by my oldest. Ostensibly it was about making sure contact information was correct. It was. The caller very much sounded like an undergraduate. Then the caller, LIKE I KNEW HE WOULD, asked for a donation. I said no, ready to explain that his college has a red light free speech rating from https://www.thefire.org/. I was also ready to offer a donation of $1000 when the university gets a green light rating. Sadly, the caller acquiesced to my refusal, so no fight.
Back in February we learned that President Obama is ready to roll. 28 days and still not rolling. I will be counting up.
Flailing with bonus points
When I first heard about Chris Matthews comparing Jarek Kushner and Ivanka Trump to Saddam Husseins’ sons (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/mar/28/chris-matthews-compares-jared-kushner-ivanka-trump/) I thought “Wake me up when Mr. Matthews finally gets around to comparing Trump to Stalin”. But he already beat me re Russian reference: “Do you think this bothers the country to have sort of a Romanov royal family running the place?” So bonus points to Mr. Matthews.
I miss the news
I used to listen to news radio to and from work. Now I find the stations all anti-Trump, staying inside the anti-Trump narrative, not interested in the other side of the story. I listen to music or nothing. It seems to me the MSM rationalizes its coverage as “Trump is objectively the worst President ever, so we must display every fault or glitch”. Thus rationalized as objective, but completely partisan. So I tune out.
I very much enjoy this
But only lately figured out the religious direction. “You Got to Change”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flEuf7twzzs. Very well done.
We have to destroy diversity to save it
Why not come right out and say it? ““The major hot button topic at Cornell is the Cornell diversity of thought. I really feel like Cornell diversity of thought is a distractory tactic from achieving actual diversity on campus,” Fears said.” Found in the Cornellsun.com.
The new gleichshaltung is here
And Slate is leading the way. http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/cover_story/2017/03/there_s_nothing_outrageous_about_stamping_out_bigoted_speech.html.
A wish not a warning
I am referring to the Washington Post’s apparent motto “Democracy dies in darkness”. Given their support of the Democratic Party, and opposition to all things GOP, and Trump, their line sounds more like a plan or wish.
