Wow, if Trump can actually make a dent in our lopsided trade with China on top of bringing Korea closer to unification, he may well be remembered as our most effective president ever.

I'm disappointed at the lack of integrity this porn star is showing. Reflects badly on the profession.

I went running about 8am one summer morning in Huddart Park here on the peninsula in 2014.

About halfway up the hill toward Skyline drive, I thought "damn, that is a big yellow dog with a very long tail above me up the hill" and then "people aren't supposed to have dogs in the park, where is its owner?" and then "oh shit, that's not a dog".

It was only about 20 feet above me on the switchback, but I guess it could not smell or hear me because of the vertical distance and trees. Then the mountain lion saw me, and took off unnaturally fast. Like no dog can run. Like the creature from Alien fast.

Then I had the dilemma of continuing to run up the deserted path or back down the deserted path. I turned off the music, picked up a stick and kept running upward, figuring that since it was afraid enough of me to run, it probably was not going to attack.

End of story, but could have been the end of patrick.net. I don't run alone in the park in the early morning anymore, and I have zero interest in conserving things that can easily rip me apart, even if they are warm and fuzzy.

Marker shows where it was in the park:

Before TRUMPLIGULA! rose to power, AMERICA! was a scorched wasteland where no one had a job, people lived in caves and the only standing edifices were mosques built in tribute to the Ayatollah Obama and his Minister of Death to Christians Michelle of the Huge Dick.

Liberal mentality = pets better than children.


Got that from the OP and the comments did you now ?

Conservative Mentality = wars better than peace.

Conservative Mentality = corporate welfare good - helping the poor, bad

Conservative Mentality = ProLife - Until it comes to care for them, then its no life

Conservative Mentality = Religion is good - only if it's the one with White Jesus and supports Potus.

Guess NFL owners finally realized that millionaire black guys complaining about oppression wasn't the marketing victory the Democrats claimed it would be.

If my buddy was attacked by a cougar, I’d toss him a few condoms and laugh at him the next day.

We cannot be certain of the politically correct reaction until we know the value of each of the parties according to the identity-politics virtue scale!

Are Muslims higher or lower in inherent identity-politics virtue than transgenders?

Feminism holds that women are equal to or better then men in all ways; but, when they do something stupid or wrong, they have no agency.

..."The loss of a dog can also seriously disrupt an owner’s daily routine more profoundly than the loss of most friends and relatives. For owners, their daily schedules – even their vacation plans – can revolve around the needs of their pets.

According to a recent survey, many bereaved pet owners will even mistakenly interpret ambiguous sights and sounds as the movements, pants and whimpers of the deceased pet. This is most likely to happen shortly after the death of the pet, especially among owners who had very high levels of attachment to their pets."


This is what I experienced when I had to put my pup down. I didn't realize how much she was intertwined in my daily routine until she wasn't there. For months afterwards, when ever I was doing a project, going outside, etc. I was instinctively looking over my shoulder, waiting for her to follow...... but she wasn't there....

Then, I would hear a strange sound at night and think it was her collar or nails clicking as she as walking around on the floor... very eerie....

Toughest loss I've every had to deal with....

I don’t let my kids do social media. There’s nothing good ever going to happen to them from using that. And the downside is astronomical.
It’s much better they ride their bike to a friend’s house or play outside doing something active.

This is true! The Feds can start by ending any movement of money into programs that feed and house the homeless. Wanna cut this off at the root? Stop any funding of welfare programs, esp those that support single motherhood.

upfront financing and dealer fees


Car dealers are loan brokers. The cars have been beside the point forever.

Anyone with an interest in cars is at the Police auction.

create American jobs, and cause American wages to rise.


You mean like the Longshoreman's Union does when they refuse to negotiate in good faith about automation upgrades, stage work slowdowns, go out on strike, anything and everything legal and barely so to get more money, more benefits, more everything for themselves and fuck everyone else and the country's economy if they don't get their way or until they get their way.

Lame post, even science is based on testing a belief. Even the word is being demonized. Beliefs are the basis of every thought. You would never take an elevator if you did not believe it would move you safely. You would be a robot if you didn't have beliefs. Insert the word, truths. What we accept to be true to us, but not necessarily true.

So yes, even if your belief is ignorant, or bigoted or sexist, one has an absolute right to their beliefs. America is based on restricting inappropriate actions, driven by those beliefs, but only to the minimum of preserving public safety, and those actions or expressions of beliefs not infringing on others' inalienable right to have their own beliefs.

Climate change is a perfect way to demonstrate this. 97% of scientists agree that man driven climate change is real. By their consensus they attempt to define the theory as law or "true." Some people then say, we don't "believe" you because we are either ignorant or we see flaws in the methodology, or we don't make the same observations or predictions fail. So the temperature drops and what was true one day then becomes a belief as now the 97% try to explain how their truths are still somehow "true."

Do we have the right to believe whatever we want to believe?


Yes, it's called Freedom of Conscience.

Beliefs can be false, unwarranted by evidence or reasoned consideration.


Like 32 Genders, Organic Veggies are better for you, the Police are Racist, the problem with the Peace Process is Israel, Hijabs are a symbol of Freedom, and Sawed Off Shotguns become Assault Rifles.

I’m confused, who is higher on the oppression totem pole; trans, fat, Muslim, or black?


I believe the primary rubric used to scale these “victims” is by how disruptive and alien they are to American society. Fat? Hah, half of us are fat, so that’s barely anything. Black? You get some consideration, but don’t push it by voting Republican, or you’re off the reservation! Trans? Yah that’s weird, you’re definitely disruptive and hard to place, so huge consideration. Again, just don’t vote anything but Democrat or piss off the Feminazis too much. Muslim? Well you’re never going to assimilate, you don’t really like other Americans, and feel that they should convert to your religion or die. You demand special rules for work and recreation. You encourage suicide bombers and gunmen to attack soft civilian targets, and you frequently shout “Death to america!” You’re the worst possible fit of them all, which means Democrats love the SHIT outta you!

The complainant is seeking $50,000 for "immense harm to my dignity."


How much dignity could a guy who dresses in drag and goes out in public pretending to be a chick actually have? I’m thinking about $3.50 worth of that. Tho I might be a tad high on that estimate.

Ahem, the GOP had a solution: arm some teachers and put a guard in every school




Another GOP response



Then of course you have this - Texas Lt. Governor Blames Doors for the Santa Fe Shooting

We may have to look at the design of our schools," he said. "And retrofitting schools that are already built. What I mean by that is that there are too many entrances and too many exits to our over 8,000 campuses in Texas. ... There aren't enough people to put a guard at every entrance and exit."
