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:

Of course, Mueller has a grasp of the obvious.

1. A sitting president cannot be indicted.

2. Nothing the president is being accused of is a crime. Even if he had constant contact with evil Russians, Hungarians, Iranians, or Martians about how to win an election, he broke no law.

What is disturbing is that it has been revealed that the Obama FBI was spying on a candidate for president months before the election. This reminds me of something that happens in places where they grow and export bananas.

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.

Scratch a liberal and a fascist bleeds.

The cock-sure moral authority the smugly Progs' think they have is frightening. We need to keep these types of people as far away from power as possible.

It's un-American to believe that people should not be able to shoot heroin in a nice apartment provided by the city.

I read quite a bit about religion a few years ago and concluded that they are not even all the same kind of thing. To put them all into one category is misleading.

* Christianity stresses faith and claims to be the only true path to heaven.

* Judaism is more like a nationality than a faith. You don't have to believe anything to be a good Jew, you just have to follow the rules. Heaven and hell are not that significant and were not even part of the religion originally.

* Buddhism is just a philosophy for how to deal with life. In its original form, it does not deal with the supernatural but is just a recipe for ending suffering and finding peace.

* Hinduism is so far out there with blue gods, elephant headed gods, etc that I think their holy men must be stoned all the time. Which may in fact be the case.

A lot of people in the Western world think that all religions are analogous to Christianity. But that would be incorrect.

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.

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.

Feux Follets says
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."

Just shows that we need to roll back and break up the media corporations back to where they were 40 years ago and soon, they are probably one of the greatest threats to the US. This is from 2011 I think its down to 4 now.

It would be a mistake for those of you still supporting trump to ignore the levels of anger the rest of us- the 60% of the country-


How could we ignore it? The "resistance" has been having a temper tantrum for the last 1.5 years constantly screeching about traitors, racists, Russians and porn stars. We are not ignoring, we are mocking you at this point.

And based on the recent polls showing Trump's popularity increasing and the Democrat lead in the generic ballot shrinking to within the margin of error - I think it is about time that the Democrats and their media enablers do some soul searching and try and find out why their brand is not selling despite having near monopolistic control over our news and information.

Moving 2 thousand miles will cost you 10 to 20 thousand if you do it all yourself U-Haul and with some pick up laborers, but they will damage your shit too.


I moved from NYC to Texas last year. Sold all my furniture, packed the wife and all of our remaining stuff in my sedan, and drove down over 2-3 days. The whole thing cost us $400 (including gas, hotels, food, tolls).
