Rob Quist, with naked neck and wrists

Oh dear. This is the most shocking horribad terriscandalous news ever! The Washington Free Beacon revealed Wednesday that Rob Quist, the awesome cowboy folk singer Democrat running in the special election for Montana’s sole House seat, has in the past performed for money in front of NAKED PEOPLE. Here’s the lede, if you can manage not to faint while reading it:

Montana Democrat Rob Quist, a locally famous musician, is a frequent performer at the Sun Meadow Resort, Idaho’s premier nudist resort for guests seeking a “family nudist experience.”

Quist, running to represent Montana in Congress, is featured front and center on the nudist resort’s website playing the guitar with his singer daughter. Both are clothed, though others on the website’s homepage are not.

Since the story ran, the Sun Meadow Resort — which is in Worley, Idaho — has removed the photo of Quist and his daughter Halladay, but the original version is archived on the Wayback Machine. Beware — if you squint, you can almost see a lady’s butt! Here’s the shocking, shocking photo of Quist and his daughter doing music; you’ll have to imagine the naked people listening:

It’s not exactly Russia Hacked The Election stuff, but as oppo research goes, it’ll have to do, we suppose. The Free Beacon did its best to document the full record of Quist’s proximity to other people’s dangly bits, noting that he’d performed at Sun Meadow in 2009, “during the second annual Skin to the Wind Festival of Fun,” when the resort attempted to set a record for “the largest skinny dip ever in North America.” Does the Free Beacon even tell us if they succeeded? It does not. What kind of journalism is that? Most of the story is about all the things people do nekkid at the resort, like cavorting and romping in the buff, plus “partaking in nude volleyball, nude kite-flying, and nude archery. Guests can go cross-country skiing in the nude during the winter months.”

And at concerts, just like the ones Quist played, “attendees sit naked in metal folding chairs during performances. It is unclear whether Quist ever performs in the nude.” But they’ll ask, because Srs investigative journamalism.

The Wingnuttosphere has dutifully tried awfully hard (HA! HA!) to turn the story into something scandalous. We’re almost charmed by the effort put into this headline by the “Conservative Tribune”: “Sick: Dem Candidate Headlines Nudist Show… With Own Daughter!

The text tries, it really does, to work up some righteous outrage:

Quist is featured prominently on the resort’s website, along with his daughter Halladay, who has also been a frequent performer for the nudists, according to the report. The duo are pictured wearing clothes on the website, and it was unclear whether they have previously performed clothed or otherwise.

That last sentence, we should point out, doesn’t make a goddamn bit of sense. It’s a clumsy borrowing from the Free Beacon story, but also hints maybe Quist and his daughter sang songs nekkid together, maybe, but no one knows! Then the next graf notes Quist and his daughter have indeed sung together since 2011. So we guess it’s pretty clear they HAVE “previously performed clothed.” Hell, we bet they’ve even worn clothes TODAY.

Do they belabor the point? Why, yes, yes they do!

Exploring and enjoying nudity with family members, particularly father and daughter, doesn’t exactly sit well with the vast majority of Americans, who largely view such things as perverse and intrinsically counter to the Judeo-Christian values most Americans still hold.

Shame on you, maybe-naked Rob Quist and your maybe-naked daughter, you pervert! How dare you claim to reflect Montana values, taking your daughter across state lines for purposes of engaging in public song in front of naked people.

Quist has so far not commented on the story, possibly because translating an eyeroll into the language of folk music takes time. His Republican opponent, Wisconsin billionaire Greg Gianforte, had no comment either, but we have every reason to believe he regularly takes off all his clothes and rolls around naked in a big pile of money. Don’t they all?

Now get to Open Threading, in whatever state of dress you’re comfortable with.

    • Claire

      (For those who are link-averse: British Columbia has just made a motion to ban American thermal coal exports, the kind that’s used in power plants, from their ports.)

      • calliecallie

        Shipping American coal through BC ports over to Asia is “not good for the environment” [BC government lady] explains, “but friends and trading partners cooperate.”

        Now, however, “the United States is taking a different approach.”

        A ban on exporting coal through Canada’s west coast ports would put a crimp in Trump’s promises to revive US coal mining employment (promises that are likely unrealistic anyway), further endear Trudeau’s government to Trump’s domestic political opponents, and likely do the environment some good. It’s also simply a reminder that Trump isn’t the only person in global politics who can play the game of threat and bluff, and that most of his opponents in said game probably have a much stronger grasp of the underlying issues.

      “[Trump’s] problem in winning this kind of dispute, however, is that identifying

      • Fancy Meau-Faux

        I’m sure it was also an exposure gig.

        • MizzMazz

      . . . and you can put down a heckler and not worry, overly much, that he might be carrying concealed.

    • I’ve been flashed while on stage exactly once, I fell over laughing and couldn’t finish the song. I imagine this may be worse.

      • Sister the Resister

        I think, to be honest, it wouldn’t be worse. Because the audience is just hanging out being an audience, which also happens to be nude. After five or ten minutes it would just be part of the background. It’s the guy specifically flashing you that takes you out of sync.

        • Well, girl in this case. I have yet to have a guy whip it out while I’m performing… Though, that would probably be even funnier. Dongs are weird lookin’!

    This just in from the nude political desk: Independent Vermont senator and former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has announced he is willing to travel to Montana to stump for Democratic candidate Rob Quist in his effort to fill the at-large seat left vacant when former representative Ryan Zinke (R) was tapped to become secretary of the Department of the Interior by President Donald Trump.

  • The Wanderer

    From Virginia Heffernan:

    (paragraph breaks by me)

    THIS is what makes my head spin: The president is not a moral figure in any idiom, any land, any culture, any subculture. I’m not talking about the liberal enlightenment that would make him want the country to take care of the poor and sick.
    I mean he has no Republican values either. He has no honor among thieves, no cosa nostra loyalty, no Southern code against cheating or lying, none of the openness of New York, rectitude of Boston, expressiveness and kindness of California, no evangelical family values, no Protestant work ethic. No Catholic moral seriousness, no sense of contrition or gratitude. No Jewish moral and intellectual precision, sense of history. He doesn’t care about the life of the mind OR the life of the senses. He is not mandarin, not committed to inquiry or justice, not hospitable. He is not proper. He is not a bon vivant who loves to eat, drink, laugh.
    There’s nothing he would die for — not American values, obviously, but not the land of Russia or his wife or young son. He has some hollow success creeds from Norman Vincent Peale, but Peale was obsessed with fair-dealing and a Presbyterian pastor; Trump has no fairness or piety. He’s not sentimental; no affection for dogs or babies. No love for mothers, “the common man,” veterans. He has no sense of military valor, and is openly a coward about war. He would have sorely lacked the pagan beauty and capacity to fight required in ancient Greece.
    He doesn’t care about his wife or wives; he is a philanderer but he’s not a romantic hero with great love for women and sex. He commands loyalty and labor from his children not because he loves them, even; he seems almost to hate them — and if one of them slipped it would be terrifying. He does no philanthropy. He doesn’t — in a more secular key — even seem to have a sense of his enlightened self-interest enough to shake Angela Merkel’s hand. Doesn’t even affect a love for the arts, like most rich New Yorkers. He doesn’t live and die by aesthetics and health practices like some fascists; he’s very ugly and barely mammalian. Am I missing an obscure moral system to which he so much as nods?
    Also are there other people, living or dead, like him?

    • Rick Hill

      He is…The Glom!!!

    • writersbloc

      Best thing I’ve read in a while.

    • Good_Gawd_Yall

      This is so well-said. It sums him up perfectly. He lacks any element we normally consider “human” other than “stands upright,” “speaks,” and “wears clothes.”

    • Claire

      That’s a really interesting point. Possibly related is the fact that he very, very rarely seems to be enjoying himself, except in the moment that a camera is trained on him at Mar-a-Lardo. Even playing golf seems to be a grim and not entirely satisfactory duty.

      In that sense, he’s the perfect Republican. I read an essay once that proposed that Trump voters hate liberals and love people like the Koch brothers because the Koch brothers are dour, dried-up old kirk-haunters whose lives seem to be endless gloom punctuated with the brief pleasure of a payout of some sort, whereas liberals are always having sex and enjoying themselves.

      • Edith Prickly

        Trump voters are miserable, paranoid fucks who are fueled by pure spite. They didn’t get the life they thought they were entitled to, so they’re going to make everyone else miserable too.

      • Good_Gawd_Yall

        I find it frightening when he smiles, and have never heard him laugh.

        • MizzMazz

          Reminds me of a supervisor I had who only ever laughed at other people’s expense. No real sense of humor is frightening to me.

          The most I’ve heard is a very short chuckle, or just a hrmph. He really doesn’t seem to like showing joy in anything, since it’s not masculine to project vulnerability.

        • Claire

          I’ve seen other people say that – that he smiles but he never laughs. It’s like the opposite of the “hideous throng” in The Haunted Palace.

    • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

      The closest thing I can imagine to him is an even more narcissistic and less competent Tony Soprano. There’s tacked on layers of human there, but they’re half-digested and acted out rather than understood. There’s the perception of masculinity as important, but not why or a whit of nuance on how it’s employed.

      Trump, at his core, isn’t a Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal because *there is no core*. He believes in nothing other than himself. Trump is an endless black hole of self, the most cavernously empty person I have ever seen. Anything that ever comes out of him is what someone else shouted into him, returned distorted and magnified. The only reason he gravitated towards the Republicans, ultimately, is because they worship narcissism.

        I was like that even back when I was young and sexy and did not know it.

    • BigBoppa ~ Résistent

      That reminded me of something funny. My wife’s aunt Edna was a real cutup. She had cataract surgery several years ago. My wife called her afterward to see how she was doing. She said the surgery went fine but the doctor must have done something wrong because she noticed when she looked in the mirror that her face was all wrinkly now.

  • IOnlyLikeCats

    It has come to my attention that Bella was written to not show any emotions, ever and this was in the book. Why is everyone hating on Kristen Stewart all the time, since that’s the case? She did her job (I dare say too well).

    • DoILookAmused2u? Résistance☨

      wut?

      • IOnlyLikeCats

        I don’t understand people’s hate for Kristen Stewart based on her performance in Twilight.

        • DoILookAmused2u? Résistance☨

          oh… I don’t watch.

          • Rick Hill

            That, is a good policy.

          • janecita

            Me neither.

          Some people hate her because Dumbshit took time to comment on her relationship.

          • IOnlyLikeCats

            I like how she was a youth and prone to bad decisions (especially with the spotlight on her) but Hollywood men cheat all the time and it’s fine after two weeks (and the double standard is not specific to her).

          • jesterpunk

            I am a guy and dont understand that logic, somehow a women cheating or sleeping with multiple people is bad but a guy doing the same is just guy things?

          • DoILookAmused2u? Résistance☨

            nope. berry bad

        • Yr. Gma

          Who is Kristen Stewart?

          • IOnlyLikeCats

            Actress.

          • vivian

            Exactly.

    • Rick Hill

      Idk. Twilight sucked all on it’s own. As for Kristen, she looks pretty odd when she has an actual emotion on her face.

    • Sheepshagger
    • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

      Now I have to go back and watch Rifftrax ” The Best of Twilight ” on YouTube. They are not kind to Bella, team Edward, or Team Jacob.

    • Carpe Vagenda

      Sorta? My parents gave copies to my kid, so I had to read them. Bella was miserable a lot of the time, and you could definitely make the case that she spent almost all of the books veering between base level adolescent angst and suicidal depression (a major theme is that she wants Edward to kill her right away because he’s been 17 for 150 years and she’s going to be an old hag of 19 before they get married and she’ll be too old for him).

      I am reasonably certain that the author did not intend any of that. Bella is incredibly emotional in the books.

      • IOnlyLikeCats

        Just because you have emotion, doesn’t mean you show emotion, and as I’ve been reading up on her, and her “mental shield” as well as lack of facial description of emotions (minus tears) seem to indicate she’s supposed to be stone-faced (unless she’s crying).

        • Carpe Vagenda

          She could certainly be stone-faced, althought that wasn’t my impression, but she makes emotional scenes a lot.

    • janecita

      I don’t like Kristen Stewart, I think that she is a mediocre actor.

    • Thiazin Red

      I’ve seen her in other stuff, and I don’t see much difference in her performances. She kind of always looks vacant and unengaged.

      As a person she seems pretty cool, but I don’t rate her as an actress.

      • IOnlyLikeCats

        I haven’t actually seen her movies and either I chose particularly good trailers or I should not trust your reviews.

    http://edition.cnn.com/2017/04/27/politics/donald-trump-kids/

    “(CNN)Thursday, as you likely know by now, is “Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work” day.
    The White House, like CNN and virtually every other company, celebrates
    this day with a special program of activities. Except, at the White
    House, you actually get to meet the president of the United States.

    This photo captured by David Martosko, the U.S. political editor of the Daily
    Mail, captures the president greeting a group of kids on the White House
    grounds. And it is, well, amazing.

    Setting aside his comment about Trump’s
    tweets, the photo virtually demands further investigation and
    explanation. Which is, of course, what I am here for.

    Let’s start with the star of the picture — the kid standing to Trump’s left.

    He is not only a) thrilled to be there but b) smiling directly into what
    I can only imagine is roughly 1 billion cameras (NOTE: This is an
    estimate) being pointed at him as he stands feet from the most powerful
    person in the country. The young me — and, heck, the now me — envies
    that kid. I was NEVER looking at the camera when a photo was taken;
    every photo of me is either a) me blinking or b) me looking off camera.
    That kid is a damn American hero.”

    • jesterpunk

      God damn media do your fucking job, Trump managing to stand around with kids and not comment on who he wants to date loudly doesnt make him presidential. It also doesnt excuse everything he has done either.

    • Thiazin Red

      I’ll admit that I still think its kind of bullshit that they added sons to it. There has never been a cultural expectation or societal pressure for sons to not work outside the home.

  • Resistance Fighter Callyson

    OT: I linked to this article yesterday about how horrible Dan Savage is being to the Right(yawn)
    https://www.lifesitenews.com/blogs/dan-savage-launches-effort-to-impeach-trump-by-funding-baby-killers

    I left 3 comments and just discovered 2 of them have been deleted, one is in moderation…even though it has 3 up votes.
    Also too, they don’t seem to understand how public comments work. Yesterday, they had a couple guidelines to commenting which were pretty boilerplate, if partisan. Today it’s like an internet service provider TOU:


    Commenting Guidelines

    LifeSiteNews welcomes thoughtful, respectful comments that add useful information or insights. Demeaning,hostile or propagandistic comments, and streams not related to the storyline, will be removed.

    LSN commenting is not for frequent personal blogging, on-going debates or theological or other disputes
    between commenters.

    Multiple comments from one person under a story are discouraged (suggested maximum of three). Capitalized
    sentences or comments will be removed (Internet shouting).

    LifeSiteNews gives priority to pro-life, pro-family commenters and reserves the right to edit or remove comments.

    Comments under LifeSiteNews stories do not necessarily represent the views of LifeSiteNews.

    So no multiple comments or conversations, and if you’re not “pro-life” expect your comments to disappear.

    Especially, as in my case, a comment linking to Daily Mail rebutting “honeybadger’s” belief the Russian/Trump connection is “fake news”.

    *a billion eye rolls*

    • BearDeLaOursistance

      No propaganda. No propaganda. WE’RE the propaganda.

    • Anna Elizabeth

      It is simply not worth the time and effort to try and speak to these things as if they were rational human beings.

      • C4TWOMAN

        Oh but it’s sometimes entertaining. Especially when you suspect they ADDED new commenting rules just to have excuses to delete filthy factual liberal comments.

        Like, why do they care? They want to be hypocrites AND look good about it?

    • mancityRed6

      • C4TWOMAN

        Doesn’t take much, does it?

    • Vincent Ricola

      “His “progressive” resume of anti-conservative hate-incidents includes:
      intentionally trying to give Christian conservative and then-presidential candidate Gary Bauer the flu by posing as a campaign volunteer and licking Bauer’s Iowa campaign office doorknobs while Savage had a cold (2000);
      smearing pro-life and pro-family Sen. Rick Santorum by “defining” his surname online as a disgusting byproduct of homosexual sodomy (2003-present);
      publicly wishing “all Republicans were [f—k—g] dead” (2011); and
      calling traditional Christians “bat sh*t, a**h*le, dou**ebags” while speaking at Rhodes College?”

      Dan Savage is the greatest. LOL.

    This might have played differently before we got a President who has appeared on the cover of Playboy and a First Lady who has naked pictures all over the internet (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

    1) Explain in detail why Atlas Shrugged is an accurate vision of what will happen if I don’t become President.

    2) Explain in detail why The Handmaid’s Tale is total bullshit and probably doesn’t even qualify as dystopian because it’s perfectly sensible.

    • Kakariki

      Probably not coincidentally, this is the letter United emailed to customers today, with the subject line “Actions Speak Louder Than Words”:

      “Dear Mr. kakariki,

      Each flight you take with us represents an important promise we make to you, our customer. It’s not simply that we make sure you reach your destination safely and on time, but also that you will be treated with the highest level of service and the deepest sense of dignity and respect.

      Earlier this month, we broke that trust when a passenger was forcibly removed from one of our planes. We can never say we are sorry enough for what occurred, but we also know meaningful actions will speak louder than words.

      For the past several weeks, we have been urgently working to answer two questions: How did this happen, and how can we do our best to ensure this never happens again?

      It happened because our corporate policies were placed ahead of our shared values. Our procedures got in the way of our employees doing what they know is right.

      Fixing that problem starts now with changing how we fly, serve and respect our customers. This is a turning point for all of us here at United – and as CEO, it’s my responsibility to make sure that we learn from this experience and redouble our efforts to put our customers at the center of everything we do.

      That’s why we announced that we will no longer ask law enforcement to remove customers from a flight and customers will not be required to give up their seat once on board – except in matters of safety or security.

      We also know that despite our best efforts, when things don’t go the way they should, we need to be there for you to make things right. There are several new ways we’re going to do just that.

      We will increase incentives for voluntary rebooking up to $10,000 and will be eliminating the red tape on permanently lost bags with a new “no-questions-asked” $1,500 reimbursement policy. We will also be rolling out a new app for our employees that will enable them to provide on-the-spot goodwill gestures in the form of miles, travel credit and other amenities when your experience with us misses the mark. You can learn more about these commitments and many other changes at hub.united.com.

      While these actions are important, I have found myself reflecting more broadly on the role we play and the responsibilities we have to you and the communities we serve.

      I believe we must go further in redefining what United’s corporate citizenship looks like in our society. You can and ought to expect more from us, and we intend to live up to those higher expectations in the way we embody social responsibility and civic leadership everywhere we operate. I hope you will see that pledge express itself in our actions going forward, of which these initial, though important, changes are merely a first step.

      Our goal should be nothing less than to make you truly proud to say, “I fly United.”

      Ultimately, the measure of our success is your satisfaction and the past several weeks have moved us to go further than ever before in elevating your experience with us. I know our 87,000 employees have taken this message to heart, and they are as energized as ever to fulfill our promise to serve you better with each flight and earn the trust you’ve given us.

      We are working harder than ever for the privilege to serve you and I know we will be stronger, better and the customer-focused airline you expect and deserve.

      With Great Gratitude,

      Oscar Munoz
      CEO
      United Airlines”

      If you have bread crumbs then mix it 50-50 with the hot fries and add a little cornstarch to it.

    • idiotboy

      NONONONO!!! get some panko breadcrumbs, capers, a lemon, butter or olive oil and read the instructions, you will need some flour and an egg. Also too do not buy Tilapia. Nasty stuff. The frozen Alaskan Cod sold in many stores (I buy it at TJ’s) is a good product and sustainable at this time. Sand Dabs will be showing up soon, yum.

            Fresh fish is a scam, most of it is frozen at sea anyway. Some has to be, like tuna, if you want to make sashimi.

            Swordfish are full of mercury too.

            That pacific cod was so wormy we used it as ling cod bait.

    • HazooToo

      Tilapia is a very mild fish, so do a 50/50 mix of that stuff and panko. First dip them in flour, then egg wash, then crumbs/panko. Good luck!

    Dear Abby:

    We have two (formerly) male cats and one (formerly) female. The two “boys” are much more passionately devoted to their mum than to me, a state of affairs my wife considers normal.

    The “girl,” on the other hand, makes a way bigger show of affection to me than to my wife, which occasions much eye-rolling about how she is a “little slut.” She talks to me in purrs, nuzzles my face, and climbs up to be held at my chest or even further to stand on my shoulders at every opportunity.

    Her name is Frick. This evening I walked into my wife’s sewing room with Frick on my shoulders, trying on the spot to make up a song to the tune of “Blowin’ in the Wind.” It was hardly a finished lyric, but a work in progress. I was trying to work with “How sweet can you be and still be a cat? The answer, my friends, is Fri-ick the cat,” etc. My wife just grumbled something like “Nobody wants to hear that.”

    Abby, is my situation normal? Can this marriage be saved?

      Yes, our two cats have definite preferences. The male cat is my cat and his sister is my boyfriend’s cat. I don’t have a bad relationship with her, she just prefers him.

      We’re a weird bunch

    • CatCafe #ShePurrsisted

      We had a beautiful, enormous, strongwilled tomcat named Buster who was absolutely devoted to me. He slept next to me, sat on the table while I had coffee, sprawled on my desk while I was writing, flopped upside down in my lap while we watched TV in the evening. He also leapt out at me from under tables, his eyes gleaming as I shrieked. He was MY boy, and he was perfectly nice to Mr. Cat Cafe, but it was clear where his real affections lay.

      Our next cat, Pokey, was so shy and so skittish that he hid in a closet for weeks. Mr. Cat Cafe sat in the room reading and talking quietly to him until finally he ventured out. He was besotted with Mr. Cat Cafe. He ran to the door when he heard my husband’s car come up the street. He leapt onto his shoulder and rode around proudly. He spent the evening cuddling with him on the couch, then slept, stretched out in peace and contentment, under the covers, with him. It took him months of gentle, quiet coaxing for him to even let me pet him.

      Now we have these two miscreant brothers (in my avatar). They’re basically a bunco squad running a long con and one day we’ll come home and find they’ve changed the locks and made off with our bank accounts and cat toys.

      Cats is cats. That’s what makes them so delightful. Frick just adores you and that’s the way it is. Your wife can be jealous (I was quite jealous of Mr. Cat Cafe with Pokey) but she can woo Frick herself, and she has the boys, and also how lovely to have sweet cat-loving and cat-beloved husbands. However, Frick does sound like a slut :)

    • i’mjustaskingthequestion

      My cat is an evil demon who is waiting for me to die so she can eat me.

      • Sister the Resister

        well, at least she’s planning for her future….

    • Back when I lived in Colorado, my partner had a couple of cats, and one of them was named “Itty,” or as she called her, “Itty the psychotic kitty.” She explained that Itty didn’t like people at all, even though she had been a house cat all her life. About a month after I moved in, I was sitting on the couch watching television with Itty on my lap purring a mile a minute while I petted her. Her “owner” took one look at the scene and said “Oh, you’ve got to be kidding me!” Yes, Itty for some reason liked me.

    • Our cat Teo likes to knead imaginary biscuits out of my chesticles. My partner is pleased that he doesn’t do that to her.

  • jowgajen

    OK, speaking fees. Former President Barack Obama will receive $400,000 to speak at a health care conference organized by the Wall Street firm Cantor Fitzgerald.

    Here we have HuffPo, which best articulates why folks are upset, or in the case of Ms. Warren, “troubled”, by Barry taking cashola for speaking words to rich people. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/obama-wall-street-speech-400k_us_5900bf16e4b0af6d718ab7b9?72&ncid=inblnkushpmg00000009&ncid=inblnkushpmg00000009 Their argument is that Barry was not hard enough on Wall Street during his administration, that Americans have not forgotten the pain of the Great Recession and that individual bankers should have gone to jail for it.

    I hear what you’re saying HuffPo, and I’ma let you finish but ….

    For FUCK’S sake! If Barack (or Hillary, or Bill, or Bernie, or …) had spent their entire goddamn lives as lawyers and built massive law firms and made a private plane load of money then we would be celebrating their success and admiring their huge yachts. But because these BRILLIANT people who could have stayed in the private sector and cashed out instead spent their ENTIRE LIVES in service to America we gotta give them shit for being successful. Fuck off about this already.

    Yes we need to fix our banking and investment system. No, it’s not cool that BOTH PARTIES have to fund their operations by begging from the people who have money. No, it’s not cool that bankers basically bought get out of jail free cards. No, it’s not cool that your investment banker can make money while he loses your money. Let’s fix that. Please, we need to. But keep the names of the people who actually tried to help you out of your goddamn mouths.

    Right. You can have this mic back now Huffpo.

      They also really tried to prosecute people, but sadly while their practices were shady, they were not illegal. You can’t actually arrest people for doing things that are not crimes, even if you don’t like those things.

      • Tsk, bringing legal reality into it! Next you’ll be telling us the Constitution forbids finding someone guilty of a law that was passed afterward!

        • Thiazin Red

          My boyfriend is in corporate law, so I get to hear about cases a lot.

          Should we reform to the laws to regulate more? Absolutely

          • No question about needing better laws. The thing that all the complainers never seem to grasp is that a) financial crimes take forever to get to court; and b) just because it’s unethical, it doesn’t mean it’s illegal.

          • Regulation is protection.

    • My personal feeling is that if they’re willing to pay that kind of money, I’m not going to argue about him taking it. He’s an ex-president now, and given the crap he put up with for his 8 years in office, if someone wants to shower him with money to give a speech, more power to him.

      I also think most of the people with the vapors about it would gladly do the same thing in a heartbeat, if anyone wanted to hear what they had to say. Which they don’t.

      • C4TWOMAN

        Also too, I’d rather him have the money, which I am sure will not just be well spent, but will go to charities and back into the economy, not some Cayman Island tax haven.

Where did that money come from, and what cost to the rest of us?

    Oh GOP, I got news for you all. Melania posed nude to arouse people. She wasn’t making music or standing in a room full of people who were completely relaxed and at home in their skins. She posed naked so 14 year old boys and skeevy old men could beat off to her picture.

      So, he’s not actually making decisions? Whoever wants him to do something presents the preferred option and he just signs off or rejects it?
      Much as it pains me, the fact that other people who were not elected are making the decisions is terrible.

      • Claire

        There was a Vox article about that too. It’s insane. They can’t even present him with more than one option because he’s not intellectually capable of choosing among them, so some rando that literally no one elected is determining policy for the President of the United States.

      • SayItWithWookies

        Hell, I don’t even care that they’re not elected — it bothers me most that Assmouth has the final say on whether to go with one policy or another, and the way to win him over is to give him a sales pitch featuring imaginary headlines about how awesome an idea it is. Like, “President Assmouth, imagine a CNN chyron scrolling by saying ‘Trump passes signature healthcare reform, ending abortion forever, reducing the deficit and causing ISIS to surrender!’ America’s gonna love you!”

        And the dumbass motherfucker has no fucking way of determining whether that’s bullshit or not. He just goes with whoever creates the imaginary scenario where Assmouth gets the most praise.

      “Yes, the U.S. economy rebounded quickly from the slump of 1979-82. But was that the result of the Reagan tax cuts, or was it, as most economists think, the result of interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve? Bill Clinton provided a clear test, by raising taxes on the rich. Republicans predicted disaster, but instead the economy boomed, creating more jobs than under Reagan.

      Then George W. Bush cut taxes again, with the usual suspects predicting a “Bush boom”; what we actually got was lackluster growth followed by a severe financial crisis. Barack Obama reversed many of the Bush tax cuts and added new taxes to pay for Obamacare — and oversaw a far better jobs record, at least in the private sector, than his predecessor.

      So history offers not a shred of support for faith in the pro-growth effects of tax cuts.”

      • CatCafe #ShePurrsisted

        Gravity has taken enough of a toll at this point that I’m “whatever, folks, this is what it is.” Sister and I went to a spa hotel (it was her b’day present to me), we were in the locker room and discovered a jacuzzi–had no bathing suits, it was clothing optional and I was OKAY I DON’T CARE WHEEEE! I did feel bad for everyone else’s emotional scarring.

        • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

          In a locker room I don’t care. It’s kind of “If you want to look, it’s up to you”. I just feel funny with the idea of hippie frolicking out in nature. Not sure why. Maybe All of us former flower children (was actually more of a Disco Girl) will run around in the nude in the old people’s home.

            The kicking around may simply be their nitpicking perfectionist tendencies rather than them singling you out for picking on. I think if you weather it, you’ll be just fine. My advice would be to smile sunnily and be pleasant and do their little nits, think of it as their anxieties that you’re calming down and the more you do, the less anxious they’ll be.

            lol, I appreciate that.
            What’s funny is I think I finally understand “gaslighting.” It’s one of those concepts hard to grasp, like when I had to look up paradigm back in undergrad.

            My boss is actually a named partner, so I realized the other day, all the intelligence I’ve been getting about his opinion of me came through other people. There was a sit down with HR, but the lawyer wasn’t there. He is notoriously picky and famous for spotting even the most minor of mistakes.

            But I’ve kinda turned into a game…that sounds wrong. What I mean is, I’ve just started today going through my stuff with the idea, “I’m not gonna give anybody an excuse to bitch.”

            It’s funny how one’s attitude changes everything.

          • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

            I was thinking about this issue. We gotta zealously represent (our clients). In our system, right and wrong is mostly for philosophers. I see some sad sad shit. People often have genuine injuries. The question becomes “are we responsible, as defined by law, for them?” Life ain’t fair – so I imagine, cause I’m still new, there are cases where we’re not liable under law but maybe we should be.

            On the other hand, I see LOTS and LOTS of bullshit guys. Really I do, they’re a 10 mph fender bender becomes a $100k claim for back and shoulder injuries (that they’ve had for years) 6 months later. Yes, we are hired by giant insurance companies and I got no love for giant multibillion dollar corps, but we are hired to defend against lawsuits based on the insured – that could mean any single one of you or your business.

            In the end, you fight for your client – that’s the job, right or wrong.

        In my experience, these things are always blown sky-high by the media. I am seriously an old and was actually there IN the sixties, and even then, when it was serious intense hugely attended demonstrations that ended up shutting the University down (YEAH), it was limited to actions around Sproul Hall and Sather Gate, which is what it seems to be now (with the intention of blackening the name of the University). The rest of the city, and even the rest of the campus (it’s an enormous campus, with 30K students), is completely unaffected.

        Yeah, but it’s getting worse. These people are now organizing and arming themselves and going for the one and only purpose of hurting people. They’ve seriously become a terrorist organization.

        I hear what you’re saying, and pre-Trump I would have believed you. But they very much have armed and armored themselves and talked in graphic detail about how to hurt people more effectively. There are also a few of them already being prosecuted for actual violence, and they have become ‘Heroes’ to this bunch of jerkbags.

      Okay, checked out my nephew’s FB page–he posted a picture with a small crowd of about 25 people standing around, saying “Just happen to be walking past today’s “epic battle” in Berkeley. It is important for everyone to understand how the camera lens captures crowds.” I went to check on Twitter and the Berkeley stuff is chock full of total alt-right assholes/antifa trying to make something out of absolutely nothing and attacking the Berkeley police. I despise them.

      That actually happened to a classmate of my daughter. Sent booby pics to her boyfriend who then, duh, showed them to his friends, and got convicted. Fortunately for her it was one of those “be good and we’ll expunge it” things but it was still about the dumbest thing I ever heard of.

    I’ve got to say, I’m really disappointed in some folks in Portland, OR right now. We have a month long celebration called the “Rose Festival” that’s a mix of performance art, parades, concerts, air shows, carnivals, and the whole lot. There is at least one event going on every single day, and sometimes multiple events all at once.

    So our east side was going to have the 82nd Ave Rose Festival parade, which the Multnomah County Republicans got a permit to march in, and some dooshy anarchist fuckpukes made violent threats of disrupting the parade if the GOP was allowed to participate…

    Yes, I see their point, and at the same time, the parade got canceled because of their threats, fucking up everyone’s good time

    I know, it’s only a few bad apples, but fuck them and their selfish fuckbaggery

        • ifyalikeityashuldaputasw19onit

          Indeed, there are moderate republicans out there. Unfortunately, they have to take the three-line whip once they get to national level.

        • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

          They’ve been marginalized in California. It’s either get with the times or become completely irrelevant.

          • ifyalikeityashuldaputasw19onit

            From my limited experience/knowledge of local San Francisco politics, a lot of people serving as Democrats have some rather republican-lite policies.
            Which in and of itself is not a bad thing, but just saying.

    • CatCafe #ShePurrsisted

      I actually think the douchey anarchist fuckpukes are mostly alt-right trolls. They might as well be. Back in the 1960s the most radical groups were deeply infiltrated and often deliberately made to look worse than they were.

      • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

        It seems like the Black bloc and AntiFa groups can screw things up all by themselves.

        Acres and acres of dense, dead grass (following an unusually wet monsoon), high temperatures, and high winds. Guess if he was a trained professional he would have found a better place to shoot.

        Interestingly, I heard a news report the other day that said the most common cause of grassfires in the SW is sparks created by safety chains on trailers that are not secured. I would have though careless smoking, but I guess not.

      • Blueb4sunrise

    Voting for people who don’t view nudity as shameful, inherently sexual or harmful, ugly, sinful or perverse sounds like a good plan to me. He and his daughter seem down-to-Earth, but then again, I’m fresh out of the Judeo-Christian value of making people hate and fear their bodies. Sometimes people are naked on the beaches here. I have somehow managed to survive it by minding my own Goddamn business.

    “A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.” – Steve Maraboli

    After being interviewed by the News-Leader about the death of her father and the impending execution in Arkansas of the man who caused it, a Willard woman reached out to the inmate’s daughter in Washington on Tuesday.

    Kenneth Williams is scheduled to be executed on Thursday at Varner Supermax in Grady, Arkansas. He caused the death of a Springfield man, Michael Greenwood, in 1999. Greenwood’s daughter Kayla was 5 at the time and his wife Stacey was pregnant with identical twin boys.

    Kayla Greenwood learned a few days ago that Williams has a 21-year-old daughter named Jasmine that he hasn’t seen in 17 years and a 3-year-old granddaughter that he’s never met[…]

    Stacey, who remarried about four years after Michael Greenwood was killed and now lives in Ozark, purchased plane tickets for Jasmine and the toddler to fly from Washington to Little Rock on Wednesday so she can visit her father.

    Kayla, along with her brothers, her mom and stepfather are driving to Little Rock on Wednesday morning to pick up Jasmine and drive her to the prison.

    “We both cried. We had a lot to talk about and a lot to relate to,” Kayla Greenwood said. “We are just excited for today and being able to be there for each other.”

    I’m honestly not sure if I’d be able to show as much compassion for Kenneth Williams daughter and granddaughter as the Greenwood family has because I’ve never been in their position. I only know that I’m glad there are people like the Greenwood’s out there to show the way.

    Is this open thread? Cuz it’s time to rant a little.

    Made it to my doctor’s appointment. Turned out my regular doc is gone and replaced by someone else. Fine, I’ll see her.

    1. Got weighed. I lost 15 lbs in the past six weeks, solely by eating so little. No exercise.
    2. She peered into my ears and goes “Oh, it’s impacted, I’ll prescribe ear drops.” So I’ve been dripping drops into my ear over the past 2 days. Voila – instant hearing loss. No matter how much I keep squirting water or dropping or anything, ear stays clogged. Is it just me, or are doctors just useless?
    3. Found out afterwards she’s no doctor, but a “nurse practitioner”. Nobody told me.

    • Rick Hill

        Ugh. Something like that actually happened to me when I was in my late 20’s. Went swimming, dove too deep, got ringing in ears. Finally went to doc, who flushed out a wax plug half an inch long. Yech.

        Trust me, the current situation is nothing like that.

        • tehbaddr

          Hmm, so you are presenting with a history of this problem.

      • HazooToo

        Jesus. brb. Q-tips.

      • Pinkham’s Law
    • Pinkham’s Law

      You have excessive earwax. The drops are to melt the wax. If you don’t position yourself to allow the now-melted wax to drain out, it drains to the lowest point and then re-congeals, leaving your ear totally blocked – hence, virtually deaf. Do your left ear, then lay on your left side for 1/2 an hour, then your right. It will work.

      • HazooToo

        I can’t believe this person wasn’t at least competent enough to tell him that.

        • Pinkham’s Law

          Yeah, THAT is an issue.

      • Doug Langley

        Here’s what’s weird. Before this, had absolutely no hearing problem at all. Then the drops seemed to clog stuff up. The stuff foams when melting wax, but the last session heard almost no foaming at all. When flushing out, no wax. It’s as if all the wax is gone. I’m baffled.

        • HazooToo

          Is it the same stuff? Are you sure she didn’t fuck up and prescribe you gorilla glue?

        • tehbaddr

          Use Q-tips like they tell you not to do. Just don’t cram the thing through yur eardrum!

            I did, just gently enough to wipe up the moisture.

            Did it feel like you were tickling your brain? If not go deeper. BTW I’m not in the service and of the business and really shouldn’t be giving medical advice.

        • Pinkham’s Law

          ok. That’s weird. Need to discuss with her.

    • Alan

      I would rather see a NP than most doctors I’ve met.

      • jowgajen

        Generally you are allowed a lot more time with an NP than an MD, which means they have time to help you with more things and/or catch conditions you are not reporting.

        • Alan

          They seem more hands on too.

          • Lord Jim

            Go on… XD

          • Alan

            Always ask for the attractive female NP.

    • tehbaddr

      The condition seems to be terminal by your description. They must come off!

      • Doug Langley

        I’m told ears are overrated, anyway.

    • Serai 1

      I believe the drops only soften the ear wax so it can work its way out. They don’t dissolve it. If it’s still impacted in a couple of days, go back and she can siphon the softened wax out.

      Oh, and nurse practitioners are perfectly capable of handling things like this.

    • Everrett Fanuelli

      Hey, I’ve been seeing a nurse practitioner for 5 years. She’s the first doctor I’ve had in a long time that will spend more than 10 minutes in the exam room.

      • John Resistant Tovarich Smith

        I have a physician assistant, and she is the best Dr. I’ve ever had.

    • jesterpunk

      Most of the drops they give you are just watered down peroxide. I used a cap full of regular peroxide you buy at the dollar store and left it in until it stopped bubbling then turned my head to the side and the bubbly wax came right out. Might want to try that, a slight warning though the bubbles may make you a little dizzy so lean on something or lay down when you put it in.

    • Most of the time I find the nurse practitioners ten million times more knowledgeable and caring than any doctor I have ever seen in my life.
      Could be the drops loosened the wax and now the plug has dropped into the canal- may need to have them flush it out. Simple procedure they can do right there.

    • BigBoppa ~ Résistent

      Since my prostate came out I’ve seen my doctor only twice. The PAs and nurses do all the heavy lifting. And I was grateful for them. They were the best.

      When my biopsy results came back the PA was the one who told me that everything was clean because the doc had left for vacation. My wife started crying and then I started and pretty soon the PA was crying. She told us this was the first time she got to do that and apologized for getting emotional. We said no worries. It was a nice moment.

      The wheel will turn and nothing will happen.

      • jesterpunk

        Well both sides have batshit insane leaders who want to look tough. That could be a huge problem.

        • Yeah but what is the gain? If it goes to full head, what is the gain for either?
          There is no gain. For either. Both will likely claim they cowed the other, however.

          • jesterpunk

            Trump will get to look presidential. Remember the medias reaction to him launching missiles into Syria? Now imagine that non stop during a full on war.

          • Good press is not that important to him. If it were, he’d be singing different tunes that he does.
            Is there oil in NK? Gold mines? Something of value that his stakeholders want, enough to risk setting off some nukes?
            Trump is a bully first and foremost. Like all bullies, when someone stands up to him, he sulks and whines and slithers to the next target. Kim is also a bully.
            The two bullies will yell lots of words at each other but unless one of them has something tangible to gain from the other, directly, I bet nothing will come of it.
            My money is on a full scale war of some pick a middle eastern country.

            I hope your right about Trump and Korea.

          • oh idk, my track record is not that grand XD It is just what seems to me at this point in time.
            Everything he is doing seems chaotic and terrible to us libtards but is ultimately profitable to his many, many puppet masters.
            Flat out war with NK would not be profitable I do not think. They’d scurry to their caves, it would be a slug out fest on live TV and his core base -the isolationists- would be diving from him in droves.

          • jesterpunk

            A war would be profitable to the defense companies like lockhead or boeing or blackwater.

          • Not that kind of war, I do not think. Maybe for the bomb makers but we’re not talkin the whole machinery.
            Why do you think we haven’t been dropping those big ass bombs on Afganistan if they so nicely get into those caves? Because they do not. Pretty sure they cost almost as much to develop and produce as you get from the DOD- it’s the side contracts you make the big money on.
            The kind of war they want, that they can really profit on, is a drawn out war where there is some oil or some gold mines or something else they can exploit. See also: Iraq
            I don’t mean to be cynical, but unless there is some commodity they can exploit readily, it really isn’t all that profitable.

          • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

            The Neocons are all jonesing for Iran. That would make Iraq look like a picnic.

            Isn’t everyone in NK outside of KIm’s circle poor?
            Honest question, no snark.

          • I think for the most part. They have a serious caste system in place, and you can move castes, by jumping through a bajillion hoops (mostly involved in proving your loyalty or something, people have turned in their own family members for example) and of course military bravery.
            But everyone else is poor as fuck. It is a true Feudalistic state- Top guys get the gold, soldiers get the silver and copper, the serfs get whatever they can grub out of the mud.

      • Yes, Trump, it is totally hard to inherit positions from your father.

      Considering that Camp Humphries opened a new center for school age kids yesterday instead of starting to quietly relocate military dependants from the peninsula, I’d say it’s posturing. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think for one moment that trump or his minions care who they get killed, but the Pentagon does.
      My money is on either sabre rattling or an attempt to stir up hyperpatriotism. Or, as the kids say: ¿Por qué no las dos?

      • Stir up more enemies to justify the jump in DOD contract spending is my guess.

        • Granny Sprinkles

          Also a possibility, but I have a hard time giving trump credit for that much forethought. He strikes me as a more primitive brained dick shaker type (who, now that he’s got an army, finally has a dick to wag at people who scare him).

          • Ain’t him, it is his handlers and puppet masters.
            I keep sayin this thing seems like utter chaos to us- but there are people making serious bank while we’re all freaking out.

    I have a question for Wonkette readers. It is a mystery from the past. When I lived in St. Louis 20 years ago, there was a Chinese restaurant 3 blocks from my house. It had about 20 tables for seating. But in the 15 years I lived there, I never once saw anyone
    sitting at any of the tables, and I passed by several times a week because the Post Office was 2 doors down from there. However, there was a steady stream of well-dressed people driving expensive cars who would walk in and pick up their take-away order in a brown paper bag, asking for it by number. I went in ONCE to order Hot and Sour Soup take-away, and I watched about 15 people do this, because I had to wait 30 minutes for the soup. When I got home it was the worst H&S Soup I ever ate, I think it came out of a can, and the can had expired. The people working there were dark-skinned Asians, definitely not Chinese. I think it was a drug house masquerading as a Chinese restaurant. The funny thing is that the Police station was right across the street, and when I mentioned this to a neighborhood cop, he was totally uninterested. As they did not seem to be causing any trouble, and their customers were well behaved, I just dropped it.

    I would rather live 2 blocks from a nudist colony than a drug house. So what do you think, Wonkette readers? It is a mystery I have always wondered about. This must have been a pretty good cover, because they are still there, 25 years later.

        My guess is lisps. Many Chinese restaurants make a lot of money on the side by selling lisps. A really good bag of lisps can cost upward of $427, and of course, once you’re out you have to get more. Just my guess.

        • Crank Tango

          That’s a lot of money for a speech impediment.

            Easy for you to say!

      I think you are correct.

      • Angela Ruzzo

        Me too. I can only assume that the police across the street knew about it and didn’t care, or else they were customers, because even though the police are morons, this was pretty obvious.

          Or third option, paid to look away.

          They may have looked the other way because as long as people are going to the asian market and quietly buying drugs they are not buying on the street. Less additional crime that way.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            Good point. I hadn’t thought of that.

        • Wild Cat

          On the take. My hood is full of Irish illegals (turnabout is fair play) who get jobs in the local Irish-owned bars. Money is exchanged in the form of a) Cop eats. b) Cop gives cashier a $20. c) Cashier gives cop $100 in change. d) Irish illegal stays another week.
          White people keep jumping into my hood! Can’t they stay in Europe where they savagely slaughtered 120,000,000 of themselves in the 20th c.? Savages!

          • Angela Ruzzo

            At least they are Irish, who make good music. I can stand any kind of immigrants if they make good music.

            But truthfully, white Europeans seem to have “happy feet” and can’t stay in one place very long. There is always a new country to “civilize” (i.e. colonize after killing or enslaving the natives, or raping the land, or both). My own ancestors came to the US because they were fed up with kings and generals and aristocrats telling them what to do, particularly telling them to fight in their land wars, after which the kings and generals and aristocrats got richer, and my ancestors got a 1-way ticket to the Poorhouse.

            But you’re right, the police must have been on the take. They were smart enough not to eat there, so I might be maligning their intelligence.

      Lots of people like bad Chinese food. The restaurant business is a notorious haven for money laundering though. It wouldn’t need to be drug sales.

      • Angela Ruzzo

        Good point. The brown paper bags could have contained anything. But this was not bad Chinese food, this was inedible Chinese food. If they were really a restaurant, they wouldn’t have lasted 25 years.

        • Wild Cat

          May be a front. May be a way to get immigrants a visa from China—you can gain US entry if a job is guaranteed. Fake businesses serve that purpose.

    • tehbaddr

      Strange occurrences at the local Asian take-away, No!

    • IOnlyLikeCats

      Best case scenario: money laundering operation. Worst case: they are selling cocaine.

    It’s bad enough, what with all the nakedness and the singing, dancing and playing of the Devil’s music, but I really must draw the line at intersex dining. I hope Rob Quist was not in proximity to any sandwiches, soups or even ice cream with a woman (naked or otherwise) was not his wife because that right there is offensive unto the Lord.

        That’s not appetizing.

        • BigBoppa ~ Résistent

          I agree. But it is a thing nevertheless.

        • oh idk, I kinda want that outfit, with one of them fruit hats and maybe a long train of herbs and flowers in the back.

          She’s quite a dish.

      • Wild Cat

        Ugh – smells like fish!

      • LarryHoudini

        I ate there. I can’t recommend the pupu platter.

        • BigBoppa ~ Résistent

          I regret that I can only upfist once. You made me lol.

      The White House insists that its new strategy will prevent Navy vessels from falling over the rim of the world. But many scientists disagree . . .

    • DainBramage

      At this point, there’s just too much real world data showing that tax cuts for the rich only cause deficits and have zero positive impact on the economy. I’m sick of this shit.
