Hope and Change and Trump: Eight years of hope and change is not enough for some people. Some people want even more of the Obama policies than they have now. The American Mirror says this lady from Atlanta has threatened to divorce her husband if he won’t vote for Trump! We could ask Sarah Palin how that “hopey-changy thing” works out, but word is she is out on the campaign trail.
“Trump gives me real hope and change, not fake hope and change.”
Cartoons and signage to thwart assaults in Germany: German officials have a new “weapon” they’re unleashing to curb assaults by migrants that have taken up residence in that country. Cartoon leaflets are being handed out at public pools and other public places. Fox News says one :
“…depicts a hand reaching for a shapely, bikini-clad woman’s backside, and bears a universal-language slash demonstrating such behavior is forbidden. “No verbal and bodily sexual harassment toward women in any kind of clothing,” reads the caption below.”
The jury is still out as to whether leaflets are going to stop the migrant’s behavior. A muslim imam, Sami Abu-Yusuf, said it was not the migrants but the women who were to blame for the assault, because they “dress half naked and wear perfume.”
Democrat Interlopers? George Pataki, who recently ended his Republican run for the presidency, said you may think the GOP has problems but the Democrats have major issues of their own. The Hill said Pataki feels the legal issues plaguing Hillary Clinton could “force” others to get in the race.
“Hillary Clinton is cratering, the scandals just keep coming. She has grave legal issues that could totally prevent her from continuing her campaign, and the alternative is a self-avowed socialist who has never run anything.”
“Pataki added that it would not surprise him to see an “outsider jump into the race” like Vice President Joe Biden, California Gov. Jerry Brown or Secretary of State John Kerry.
Trolling for polls:RCP has up the numbers. In Iowa, a CBS/YouGov poll has Trump leading the pack with 39 percent, Cruz in second with 34 and Rubio in third with 13 percent. Fox has a new one. Trump is at 34 percent, Cruz 23 and Rubio has 12. For New Hampshire, Trump has 31, more than doubling Cruz’s number 2 spot with 14 percent. Rubio has 13. In all three polls only Trump, Cruz and Rubio scored in double digits. And in another poll: from the Weekly Standard comes head to head polling against Hillary Clinton. In short, Rubio and Cruz both beat out Clinton, while Trump loses to Clinton.
For those who want Congress to work less: Your wish is being granted. The House will be out of session the whole week. The reason given is due to the snow, but in reality it was going to be a short week anyway as Democratic lawmakers were going on retreat starting Wednesday. The snow just cancelled what few days they were going to work.
What an odd day: Today is Beer Can Appreciation day. Homage is given to this day in 1935 when beer was first sold in cans. And, no, I’m not making this stuff up.
Watercooler’s dry for the time being. But check back down in the comments section throughout the day and see what others leave behind. Drop something in yourself while you’re at it. Great thing about the Watercooler. It’s always an Open Thread.
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES I’m being 100% serious about this. I don’t understand what the outrage here is. If you did not catch the story, zookeepers shot and killed a gorilla that was dragging around a four-year-old boy who had managed to get into his cage. The argument seems to be divided into three camps. Those Who Apparently Think The Kid Should Have | Read More »

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The New York Times had an astounding article yesterday about the lengths to which the Obama administration went to bully everyone to accept the dubious legality of their massive insurer bailouts; bailouts for which there was absolutely no Congressional appropriation. A Federal judge has already ruled that these payments were illegal, and the administration has appealed – principally on the | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES My favorite joke about government and its inanity goes something like this: A guy is running late for a meeting. He’s in his car – stuck on a single lane blacktop behind a county government truck. He can’t pass – it’s a double yellow line. Every fifty yards the county truck stops and two guys jump out of the | Read More »
