Happy Tuesday.

The pace of new voter registrations is off its 2008 high in Virginia, leading the Washington Times to conclude that low Democratic enthusiasm is sapping Obama's opportunities.

“Kiss my ass, this is a holy site for the Polish people,” said Romney aide Rick Gorka in response to shouted questions from the U.S. press as Romney was visiting the Polish Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. “Show some respect.”

In the land that lacks a First Amendment: UK police arrest teen over rude tweets at Olympic diver.

"Women and children first" is a shipwreck myth. Usually the captain and crew survive; the women and children don't.

WSJ has a nice page tracking which countries' athletes are winning medals at the Olympics.

1 Good Morning Morons, Today is Tuesday, July 31, 2012.  ON this day in 1790 the first U.S. patent was issued.  It was for a process of making fertilizer; fitting it was.  Not much news out there this morning.  It appears we have hit the Summer Doldrums.

5 CNN blames drought for high corn prices, also beef and hogs.  Show chart but no explanation of why prices started climbing BEFORE the drought or why current corn is affected beef already.  Hey assholes we have a triple feature here.  Drought, inflation, and ethanol for corn.

23 Mrs VIA and I had a wonderful lunch at CFA yesterday.
The place seemed to be full of cheerful people.
And the sandwiches were delicious.

That seemed to really piss off our one neighbor who claimed support for gay people.

So...we talked about Fast and Furious, the NBPP Philadelphia voter intimidation issue, GM upping their sales numbers by increasing the number of sub-prime loans,and a few other issues.

All topics that my neighbor seemed to know very few details about.

27 If "women and children first" was true of the Titanic and the Birkenhead, then it isn't exactly a "myth," is it? Also it's ironic that the filthy bourgeois males on the Titanic were the ones who showed the most class and the most willingness to put the weakest first, in the extant accounts of shipping disasters. "Myths," anyone??

30 Washington Examiner covers Judicial Watch victory over Obama/Holder "Social Justice" default by absence to dismissal of charges by guilt regarding Obama's "private army" aka (new) Black Panther Party voter intimidation 2008 Philly style.

Obama, Inc., specializing in pinstripe crime with thugs to boot, refused to acknowledge that attorneys working to uphold rule of law be recognized as "real" attorneys deserving legal fees. Only Pirates deserve the booty from wherever.

100 days before the next election, wheels of justice grind...

"In sum, the Court concludes that three of the four fee entitlement factors weigh in favor of awarding fees to Judicial Watch. Therefore, Judicial Watch is both eligible and entitled to fees and costs, and the Court must now consider the reasonableness of Judicial Watch’s requested award."

31 I call bs on this study. Not that women and men were more often saved (I think it's usually every person for himself) but that Swedish investigators found that Brits behaved worse than people of other countries They used a HUGE sample of 18 ships and it's reported by the "LA Times" during the Olympics. Little favoritism there?

Check out the "questions" those Democrat assholes were shouting at Romney.  "What about your gaffes?" asks the WaPo.  Hey, jackholes, why don't you pester your dog-eating boyfriend about the 57 states he visited or where he learned to speak Austrian?  The only bad thing about the story was that Romney's aide apologized after telling Politico to shove it.  He should have said "When a reporter asks the governor a question, he will answer it.  I haven't seen any reporters on this trip."

 

Meh.  As Vic says, it's the doldrums.  Not much for the last day of July.  However, in 1915, the slapstick director Mack Sennett created what would be the second-most readily identifiable silent "image" next to the Keystone Kops - the Bathing Beauties.  Designed to be eye candy, the Beauties - dressed in (for the times) sexy bathing costumes - were background attractions in many Sennett shorts as well as being used in PR shots and public appearances.

 

A number of women who began as Bathing Beauties graduated to their own film careers, including Juanita Hansen and Carole Lombard.  Sadly, at the end of the silent era, many of those same women lost their star appeal; the most famous, perhaps, being Marie Prevost.  Drug, alcohol and food addictions doomed her to poverty by the mid-Thirties, and she died of heart failure in 1937.  A popular legend (repeated in the disgusting Hollywood Babylon has it that Prevost - whose body wasn't discovered until two days after she died - was eaten by her dogs.*  In fact, only her legs showed bite marks, and these were from her pet dachshund, Maxie, who had been trying to wake his mistress up.

 

And that's it from me.  Hope you all have a wonderful day.

 

*Songwriter Nick Lowe (Cruel To Be Kind) hat-tipped the legend in his song "Marie Prevost" with the lines "She was a winner / Who became a doggie's dinner."

53 Took my kids and their friends to Chick Fil A yesterday and couldn't park on their lot it was so crowded. There were two workers taking orders outside, down the drive thru line, and one had a condiments station set up after the drive thru. Inside there was a man helping families with high chairs and placemats for toddlers who eat off the table and another constantly cleaning the dining area. Fresh flowers on every table, hordes of customers, and nice and orderly. Go, CFA!

Re the shipwreck myth, the article was pretty sketchy on the methodology.  As far as I can tell all they do is compare the numbers for survival rates.  To assume that this is really telling is stretching it.  Shipwreck victims don't all just casually portion out space on the life boats as the ship gentle settles, ever so slowly, into the water.  I think it's fair to say that most folks are stuck trying to survive actually IN the ocean for a while.  The weaker you are, the greater the odds that you'll croak, even if given preferential treatment.  Thus, children die first, and hardened sea farers die last.

Aside, how long will the staff "enjoy" such popularity, more work at current pay? High school kids aren't the smartest or most experienced when it comes to quitting for greener (slower paced) minimum wage pastures. Hopefully, the employees appreciate working in a well organized and highly functional environment that doesn't hesitate or frustrate paychecks on schedule.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Missy Stevens is refusing all promotions and endorsements, in order to keep her amateur status. So, no Wheaties box cover for Ms Stevens, at least in the near future.

You do know what this means, of course? She is refusing income. And that, of course, affects interstate commerce - think of all those boxes of Wheaties going unsold because her picture isn't on them.

And that means that Missy Stevens is deny the government the tax income it would otherwise get from her endorsement income. Money that the government would use to feed and educate impoverished minority children.

So, do you know what this *really* means? It means that Missy Stevens, because she refuses to appear on the Wheaties box, is a *racist*!!!11!!1!

I'm still flogging this philly.com article about how statewide achievement test scores in PA fell after new anti-cheating rules were put in place:
 
After authorities imposed unprecedented security measures on the 2012 statewide exams, test scores tumbled across Pennsylvania, The Inquirer has learned.

At some schools, Pennsylvania Secretary of Education Ronald Tomalis said, the drops are "noticeable" - 25 percent or more.

Yeah, that is sorta noticeable. Note that this is the teachers/admin doing the cheating, not the kids.
 
Zombie did some tracking down of the worst offenders named in the report, and found them to be inner city schools.

Infernal Devices - All Steamed Up

The Two Aces. Victorian London’s most salacious secret, the club is a place where erotic fantasies are played out among clockwork automatons and aether powered machines. Where nothing is off limits and the pleasures are as wicked as the imagination will allow... Permilia Deering goes to The Two Aces looking for the sexual excitement that she knows she will not find with the man to whom she is affianced, notorious cold-fish Wallace Sterling. On her first visit to the club, she meets the Ace of Spades, a masked stranger who drives her to heights of passion she’s never dreamed possible—and makes her seriously reconsider becoming a mannerly society wife. When Wallace Sterling first glimpses his fiancée standing outside The Two Aces, he assumes she’s uncovered his secret identity—the Ace of Spades. But Permilia has no idea that her intended is living a double life, and Wallace worries that he’ll be out of the picture once she gets a taste of what the Ace of Spades can offer her...

Yep - no surprise there.  Libtard ethics at work, as usual.  They will do anything to cover their gross failure.  Especially if it enables them to do so without voicing the real truth - that inner city culture is the biggest reason for their ongoing failure.  When education is seen as a form of collaboration with the "racial enemy" it tends to depress those test scores a bit.

91 Nice job by PA education system. Leftists will no doubt blame it on standardized tests and NCLB legislation. Those hateful repubs! Don't let them get away with it. Maybe they should actually teach the kids some learnings so they can pass the test. Tracking and incentivizing results - its called TE real world, teacher's union. Look into it.

93 Drought, inflation, and ethanol for corn

Last year's drought in Texas is part of what is driving cattle prices.  Ranchers had to slaughter a lot of cattle last year, because they couldn't afford to keep them.  That means less cows to slaughter this year.  Additionally, the nice rains we got earlier in the year mean that Ranchers are taking this year to rebuild their herds, so prices are going up even more.

But also inflation and ethanol.

Reid, in an interview with The Huffington Post, also calls Magwood a “tool of the nuclear industry” and says he’s “unethical” and “incompetent.”

Cumulus Radio just bought WBAP here in DFW, and one of the first things they did was re-format the morning show.  It's still good, but not as good as it used to be.  One of the next things they did was s-can Mark Davis (who, aside from Rush, was their main draw).  I have little doubt that when it comes time to renew the syndication agreements with Rush, Hannity, and Levin, those will suddenly be "too expensive."

I doesn't me.  Those CfA's are profitable, so the business isn't going away, just changing locations.  If it were me, I'd move directly across the street from campus, and watch all those college kids come buy my food anyway.

The reason lefties are so bad at boycotts, is they can't bear to be without their comforts.  Conservatives are much better (once we actually decide to boycott something- like Dixie Chix CDs) because we're already acclimated to sacrifice.

That happened in the Philly market. WPHT rearranged its schedule to accomodate squishes and libtards in the midday and drivetime slots. Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity: GONE.

 

Then a beautiful thing happened. A new station on the FM band picked up the Big Three, added Mark Levin for good measure. They have a couple local guys in the morning, haven't listened enough to determine their political leaning. So now we truly have choice. (WPHT still has some reliable local conservative guys on its schedule, mainly in the morning and buried in the 10pm slot.)

124 Nope, there's no voting fraud going on AT ALL. It's a myth, you see:
 
While NAACP President Benjamin Jealous lashed out at new state laws requiring photo ID for voting, an NAACP executive sits in prison, sentenced for carrying out a massive voter fraud scheme.

In a story ignored by the national media, in April a Tunica County, Miss., jury convicted NAACP official Lessadolla Sowers on 10 counts of fraudulently casting absentee ballots. Sowers is identified on an NAACP website as a member of the Tunica County NAACP Executive Committee.

There's - almost seems to be a phenomenon that you could maybe call a pre-traumatic stress disorder. There have been a lot suicides in the Army, many more as a result of these wars than in previous years. Interestingly enough, as many soldiers have killed themselves before they were due to be deployed as after. Thirty-five percent of the suicides are pre-deployment, 35 percent are post-deployment. So there seems to be an issue here of expectation of what you are getting into. And the fact that Major Hasan would've known better than others, even, about how traumatic combat experience would be, you know, raises the question of, you know, was he an example of these soldiers who are literally freaked out by what they are likely to face when they are deployed?

Also I notice that one of the lead stories on msn.com is David Cameron saying that we can do better about the Olympics ticket snafus and suchlike.  Sooooooo, the MFM will apologize to Romney about saying he was wrong about London not being ready when?

167 Mama AJ, I see your piece of NPR crap and raise you another NPR piece of crap:


LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST: So today is Poland. Why is he stopping in Poland. What does he hope to accomplish with that?

Cokie Roberts: Well, I think part of it was a desire to portray President Obama as something of a wimp, and say he's abandoned Eastern Europe. But look, you remember well the Reagan Democrats. Those ethnic white voters who had been Democrats for many years; turned out for Ronald Reagan, and have been fairly predictable Republicans since then. Now it's a smaller percentage of the population -- of the voting population -- than it used to be, but white voters are still much more Republican than any other group in the electorate. They went for McCain in 2008 by 55%. And I think that getting those ethnic voters excited is really what Romney has in mind here. It's more for the folks at home -- the descendents of the people that he will be speaking to -- in Poland.

Check out Feast restaurant on Westheimer- their logo is a hog. You can get pig's ear cake, intestinal pretzels, roasted pork belly, roasted bone marrow, pickled lamb's tongue etc. Also, Goode & co BBQ over on Kirby has bbq sweetwater duck. Plus the cajun food is real good, due to proximity to LA as well as Katrina.

And so on.

176 A man and a teen have been charged with hitting and robbing an 87-year-old man Monday afternoon in the Southwest Side Chicago Lawn neighborhood.

Rashon E. Williams, 20, was charged with one count of felony robbery of a victim 60 years or older, according to Police News Affairs.

The robbery happened about 3 p.m. Monday in the 7100 block of South Claremont Avenue when Williams and a 15-year-old boy allegedly struck an 87-year-old man from behind and took the man’s wallet before running away, police said.

According to his daughter, the victim is a World War II veteran who will turn 88 years old Thursday.

I can respect your POV, BurtTC, but there is a time and place for reporters to be shouting questions and a time and place for showing some courtesy.  They were visitors in a foreign country, visiting a sacred place.  That's two checkmarks against them for their rudeness.    I mean, just read the transcript:

 

CNN: "Governor Romney are you concerned about some of the mishaps of your trip?

 

NYT: "Governor Romney do you have a statement for the Palestinians?

 

Washington Post: "What about your gaffes?

 

NYT: "Governor Romney do you feel that your gaffes have overshadowed your foreign trip?"

 

CNN: "Governor Romney just a few questions sir, you haven't taken but three questions on this trip from the press!

 

Gorka: "Show some respect"

 

NYT: "We haven't had another chance to ask a question..."

 

Gorka: "Kiss my ass. This is a Holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect."

 

I see absolutely nothing wrong with that response in that context.   The reporters were acting like spoiled children, and Gorka treated them as such.

I absolutely agree with what you're saying but.....what's going to be reported?  That the press was being rude OR Gorka's response to them?

Worried about Ohio going blue?

Well, let's punish our enemies, shall we?

A very good start for the Romney Administration would be a national Right to Work law targeting the auto unions, laced with provisions making mandatory dues illegal for any union, public or private.

Break the unions into little, itty bitty bits.

No more worries.

Don't you find the response to their disrespect though, to have been disrespectful?  Not  necessarily  to the reporters, I'm talking about that sacred place. 

 

What I suspect is that the transcript  may have been "edited,"  and that it's possible the "kiss my *ss" line didn't occur in that same sacred place, but unless and until we get a report from somebody other than THOSE reporters, we'll never really know how it transpired.
