I was waiting for this:
Black Transgender Lives Matter activists disrupted a Hillary Clinton campaign stop in Ohio Thursday...Up next: Black Transgender Real Estate Professionals Lives Matter, and Hispanic Gluten-Intolerant Left Handed Lives Matter.
Seems like eventually we'll get around to All Lives Matter, we're just doing it piecemeal in order to make the point that Scandinavian forklift mechanics are dead last.

Animal Rights activist beducked:
Madrid (AFP) - An animal rights activist was beaten with a duck by a Spanish woman defending one of the country's most bizarre and controversial festival traditions.
The man was whacked with the bird while he filmed the annual "duck chase" in the Catalonian seaside town of Roses, where every August ducks are thrown into the Mediterranean and then caught and brought back to the shore by swimmers.
"Continue, continue. Continue to abuse, I am filming you. A little bit of empathy for the animals. They also have a life, like your children or your family," the man who was filming can be heard saying in a video of the incident released by animal rights group Animal Rescue Espana.
The footage shows a young woman wearing a white bathing suit attack the man with a duck -- holding it by the legs as she repeatedly lashes him with it.
As the attack goes on, animal rights activists gathered on the shore can be heard chanting, "You would not do that to your dog," before they were removed by police.
Every year since 1918 about 50 ducks are thrown into the sea in the town north of Barcelona, with swimmers then racing in to catch them and bringing them ashore however they can.

The White House sends me their "dear idiot" letters because they think I'm a big supporter of Barack Husain Obama. This latest one starts out: (emphasis mine)
Our biggest step yet in fighting climate change:President Obama just announced America's Clean Power Plan -- the biggest and most important step our country has taken in the fight against climate change.
Our power plants are responsible for about a third of America's carbon pollution -- more than our cars, airplanes, and homes combined -- and that pollution is fueling climate change. But until now, there have never been federal limits on how much carbon pollution existing power plants can generate...What he's talking about is his move to shut down all coal fired power generation. And he claims that our power plants put out more CO2 than cars, airplanes, and homes combined. Just how does he think our homes get their electricity? I get mine from those power plants. Idiot
Destroying the coal industry and raising energy prices is all well and good, I mean, we have to destroy America somehow, and collapsing the economy is as good a way as any. But it's a pipe dream to think this will have any effect on the climate at all.
China puts out nearly twice the CO2 we do and their trend is upward. Our trend is downward, thanks to a president who knows how to throttle growth.
And anyway, the world's 34.6 million kt won't be much changed even if we cut our emissions by half. (2.6 million kt) Also, cutting CO2, a proxy for energy use, by half will make us all envious of the Kenyan economy. Maybe that was the point all along.
Meanwhile, there will be almost no American manufacturing and all of our Dollar Stores will have changed to Eight Dollar Stores. Way to go B.O.

I can't help but remember a few years back...
And then there's the failure to love Michelle Malkin, which I believe is a crime in my state:
Here's something about @realDonaldTrump: He supports Kelo, cheered socialized medicine, smeared "my past" & called me a dummy. #phony— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) March 21, 2013
So now he's a conservative? I dunno. I'd feel more confident of his conservatism if his fall on the road to Damascus had happened years before his decision to run for the presidency. The timing bothers me. Watch this guy, I fear he is Ross Perot with a comb-over.
Has anyone ever seen Perot and Trump in the same room at the same time?
