    Gotta say loving the “protests” in all these leftist collective cities, I myself live in the suburbs, so am enjoying the spectacle. I enjoy the officers getting all that overtime for their Christmas!

    These mindless protests are good in a way. In the 60s the dumb hippies did the same thing; sit-ins, banal chants, fists in the air, blocking traffic, public profanity, defying police, etc. People got sick & tired of it and the next election went overwhelmingly Republican.

    Keep it up, boneheads!

    Putting a bag over Ryan Reynolds’ head is not the worst choice a director could make…

    Rolling Stone has apologized for the UVa fraternity gang rape story:

    My take from CNN’s story is that it’s more likely than not that the entire incident is a fabrication. The reaction’s from other campus groups is bizarre to say the least.

    ACE has this

    WaPo has this

    Somebody drag McCain out of whatever dyke bar he’s doing ‘research’ in – Mandy Marcotte had a complete meltdown when the UVA rape tale collapsed, apparently she was even on a streaming ‘HuffPo LIve’ show making a huge fool of herself when the retractions and corrections started coming down.

    It’s not the sort of thing a Great White Hunter wants to miss, real trophy material.

    The protests that shut down shopping are a nefarious plan by Amazon to corner the holiday shopping market and kill local jobs.

    Well, they hired Jeff Quinton for a seasonal gig, so they can’t be completely nefarious.
