You have to wonder just how early in the morning DNC Spokeshole Debbie Wasserman-Schultz starts drinking.
The Republicans are trying to out-right wing each other. Look, between the fifteen Republican candidates who are left — all of whom are trying to out-Trump Donald Trump — by saying, “Yeah let’s kick women. Let’s kick them and immigrants out of this country. Let’s take away health care from women.”
Obviously, drinking takes so much of her time she can’t even shower and comb her hair.
If you followed UCLA basketball during the 1970’s, part of the John Wooden years, you will remember Dave Meyers.
Dave Meyers, the star player on John Wooden’s 10th and final national championship basketball team at UCLA, died Friday at his home in Temecula after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was 62.
Meyers played on two Bruins national title teams, as a reserve in 1973 and as the star player in ’75.
After that ’75 season, the 6-foot-8 Meyers was named a consensus All-American and became the second pick in the NBA draft. He was taken by the Lakers. David Thompson from North Carolina State was the first pick.
Nineteen days after the NBA draft, Meyers was part of perhaps the biggest trade in league history. He was sent by the Lakers, along with Junior Bridgeman, Brian Winters and Elmore Smith, to the Milwaukee Bucks for Walt Wesley and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
Meyers, who was born in San Diego in 1953, was one of 11 children of Bob and Pat Meyers. Bob was a basketball star at Marquette University in Milwaukee in the mid-1940s, but eventually settled his family in Southern California. […]
Meyers was also known as a private person, who shocked the sports world in 1980 — five years into a productive and lucrative pro career with the Bucks — by announcing that he was leaving the NBA to spend more time with his family.
“Remember, David played for an unbelievable teacher at UCLA,” Meyers Drysdale said, referring to Wooden. “He was taught more about life than about basketball.”
Meyers returned to California, and after a stint in sales for Motorola received his teaching certificate and taught elementary school — mostly fourth and sixth grade — for more than 30 years. He began teaching in Yorba Linda and later taught in Temecula.
Dave Meyers was one year ahead of me at Sonora High School, La Habra, California. He led our basketball team to CIF championship in 1971. He was always a gentle soul and will be sorely missed.
The more things change …
Meanwhile, Time magazine celebrates the murdering coward Che and how he didn’t let asthma slow him down.
Latson led her article, titled “How Che Guevara Didn’t Let Asthma Affect His Ambitions,” with her “even greater threat to his revolutionary ambitions” line about the leftist’s asthma, and noted that “asthma was a constant threat from his earliest youth.” She continued with an account of the physical abuse that Guevara’s father inflicted on his “tiny and sickly” son when he was a child, which “instead of toughening him up…left him with a persistent cough and severe asthma.”
Because, let’s face it you fly-over country hicks with your grubby little thoughts of family and freedom.
You.Don’t.Count. And we are tired of pretending you do.
Committed Democrats and liberal-leaning interest groups are facing a reality in which any policy gains they achieve are going to come through the profligate use of executive authority, and Clinton is almost uniquely suited to deliver the goods. More than almost anyone else around, she knows where the levers of power lie, and she is comfortable pulling them, procedural niceties be damned.
Liberals need an iron fist in the White House to make progress.
Democrats have almost no chance of securing a majority in the US Senate and even worse odds of securing a majority in the House. So if there is a future for making progressive policy, that future is executive action. […]
But she truly is the perfect leader for America’s moment of permanent constitutional crisis: a person who cares more about results than process, who cares more about winning the battle than being well-liked, and a person who believes in asking what she can get away with rather than what would look best. In other words, as nervous as the rumblings of scandal around her emails make many Democrats, the exact same qualities that led to the server drama are the ones that, if she wins, will make her capable of delivering on the party’s priorities in a way few others could.
Hope the fat little fascist chokes on a free-range chicken wing.
Indulge your inner, twisted baker …
I was in a bad part of town, the room as gloomy as Max’s face. He hunkered over it, jewelers loupe glinting under the single light.
I felt anxious but not unsafe. It would take one of Patton’s Army tanks to breech this hidey-hole. A tattoo of grey-green numbers was visible on Max’s inner arm. One of Life’s hard lessons.
“Oh yes. Beautiful stone, 2 carats, antique cut.”
“Real. Don’t tell me how it got loose from the … owner.”
That worried me. Not the diamond but its setting; a canine tooth – 3 inches long …
… And human.
Can’t say I’m really worked up by seeing Leftists hoisted up on their own equality-before-individual-rights petard.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has begun contacting female directors to investigate gender discrimination in Hollywood.
In the EEOC letter sent out Thursday, a copy of which was obtained by The Times, the agency asks to schedule interviews with the women, “so that we may learn more about the gender-related issues which you are facing in both the film and television industries.”
In interviews with several of the women who have received letters from the government agency — which is following up on a request the American Civil Liberties Union made in May — the directors said they were grateful that longtime complaints about gender discrimination in Hollywood are being taken seriously.
“It feels historic,” said Lori Precious, a director of commercials and music videos who received a letter from the EEOC. “We were all hoping it would go this far. I’m so tired of hearing, ‘There aren’t qualified women.’ There are qualified women to do every directing job in Hollywood.”
(I know it’s a commercial, yet …)
