Meanwhile, at Portland State University

I chose the later of the two options I considered as I listened to this:
1) Comment on every single flawed and multi-flawed sentence and risk bringing down the Internet, or
2) Post without comment.




Comrade Forney told me and Comrade Zhukov, long ago, that Oregon "is where America's youth go to retire."  This scene at Portland State University looks like an Assisted Living Facility for these retired youth.

Not to be too critical of the school.  An alumni is credited for designing the Nike logo.

The 2016 election year is going to be epic.

Thank you WRSA for linking, and for adding perspective, depth and this:
 The collision of all of these vectors will be spectacular.

Web Picks Du Jour

English Russia has a photo album of Soviet workplace posters.  This one says "Don't use your fingers to check voltage."  Such good advice, yet their system collapsed anyway. Hmm.


World News Bureau has some campaign poster suggestions for Hillary, Bernie and Trump.  Here is the Trump poster. Spot on, if you ask me.  But if you ask most of my fellow Ohioans, they'll tell this poster isn't "presidential."


Comrade Diogenes correctly suggests voter turnout in the primaries is not necessarily translated into a big win in November.  In other words, "Don't get cocky."  These stats, and explanation, at her site.


And in back-page news, assuming the MSM will say anything at all... Donald J. Trump has secured the necessary votes for the GOP nomination.  He did it by beating an obnoxious (in both numbers and personalities) FIFTEEN other candidates who should have diluted the votes and led to a contested convention.  If California dropped in the ocean before their June 7 primary, he'd still be the nominee.  The nominee, on FB today:


What a great year!

Intellectual Froglegs

Finally. 

A new episode of Intellectual Froglegs. 

Comrade Joe Dan calls out the #NeverTrumpers, the Bitter Cruzingers, and Speaker Paul Ryan.  And he directs fire on target #1: Hillary.  Oh, and Uncle Rico makes an appearance.  25 minutes:

Bedtime for the #NeverTrump Anger Babies from Intellectual Froglegs on Vimeo.



Why hasn't a major network - that wants to be relevant this year - thrown big $$'s at Joe Dan and offered to help him produce a daily Intellectual Froglegs?

It was the comments that inspired this post:

Ushanka Comrades on the Net

Comrade Matt Forney has an excellent article at Return of Kings today:  How Donald Trump Is Inspiring A Masculine Renaissance In America.


In addition to predicting a restoration of masculinity and a decline in political correctness from Trump's rise, he also calls out some "sackless losers" among our fellow so-called "conservatives." 

He concludes:
Donald Trump’s shamelessly masculine persona has been a massive boon to the American social fabric. He may not be able to make America great again, but he’s helping make men great again.
I've been thinking the same thing.  I know Trump has inspired my thinking in these areas.  He is showing you, me and Republicans how to fight back and how to inspire - two traits sorely missing in our recent past.  And two traits consistent with successful leaders. 

I'll keep saying it: This is one fun election year!

And it is with sadness in my heart that I share Comrade Clarey's [latest] desperate act, and his GoFundMe request
I'm raising money to compensate me for the pain and suffering I'd endure if I see the new Ghostbusters movie.
Can you help the poor guy out?

Quote of the Day

NRA Chief lobbyist, Chris Cox, at the NRA Convention today:
...on behalf of all of the thousands of people in this room and the five million NRA members across this country and the tens of millions who support us I am officially announcing the NRA’s endorsement of Donald J. Trump for president.
More at GP and CT.





UPDATED 10 minutes later....

The NRA posted Trump's speech.



Women for Trump



Diamond and Silk are the informal leaders of the Trump campaign.  They are funny, and they are engaged.


They represent two core demographics that the Democrat Party has invested heavily in destroyed.


And they are taking it to Hillary.  Here they are yesterday at a Women United 4 Trump event.




2:17 mark:
Just because you are black does not mean you have to vote Democrat baby.  You can get off that Democratic plantation and come on over here to the Republican side.  And make sure you vote for Donald J. Trump.
What an election year.

Women United 4 Trump website

Women you will not see stump'in for Trump:  Dana Loesch, Amanda Carpenter, Diann, Katie Pavlich, The Victory Girls, and other Bitter Cruzingers who hitched their buggy to the wrong horse.

Authentic North Korean Goods

IOTW's MJA found this UPI story.  Apparently authentic North Korean military uniforms and other items are finding their way onto eBay.

I found this Lieutenant Colonel uniform in my own search, for $325 plus shipping from China:


If authentic, one can assume the price has doubled at each step:
The current owner paid $150,
To the exporter who brought it across the Tumen River after paying $75,
From the LTC (or a thief) inside North Korea.
$75 is 4.2% of the North Korean income per capita ($1800), or $2,294 in US terms.
