Grampy responds to the troll!! How's the new grandson? Have you heard about the cicadas coming your way?
From NC to CT! Should be good for business in Florida, they're sticking around for 6 weeks! What a nightmare.
(Right, Grampy is responding to trolls today)

New grandson is doing great. He's coming over in about an hour with his mom.

I remember watching the cicadas swarm at the PGA Memorial a few years back in Dublin Ohio. Here in CT we get some cicadas hatching every year. They are not all on the same 17 year cycle. This year's cicada din won't be as bad as it was 17 years ago, only because my hearing is worse than it was then...

What The Handling Of Jason Richwine Says About Conservatism
Richwine's resignation allows him to become a scapegoat for an ideology that is still perfectly acceptable inside the conservative movement and the right-wing media. If Richwine's focus on the IQs of Hispanic populations is unacceptable, then so is Charles Murray's focus on the African American community. So are those of the godfather of the entire anti-immigrant movement John Tanton, who "wrote a paper titled The Case for Passive Eugenics."
Rush Limbaugh defended Richwine's racial tests on his program, proclaiming: "So, now it's trash the messenger time." He went on to say "You're not suppose to bring that kind of stuff up. You're not suppose to talk about it. It's not politically correct, even if it's true. You're not suppose to bring it up."
Michelle Malkin attacked those who dare point to the fundamentally racist nature of Richwine's dissertation. writing at Townhall.com : "The smug dismissal of Richwine's credentials and scholarship is to be expected by liberal hacks and clown operatives."
Richwine resigned after doing the job he was hired to do and for views his employer must have known him to hold. He was the most junior member of the group of conservative researchers who have spent their careers producing questionable studies about race. And because he was the lowest in the hierarchy he was the easiest to cast aside.
Charles Murray is right. This move lacked integrity, for that would require a widespread condemnation of the flawed racial theories peddled in the conservative movement and the "respected" think tanks such as the American Enterprise Institute that allow them to flourish. I doubt that is forthcoming, making Heritage's decision to accept Jason Richwine's resignation an act of craven political cowardice.

Richwine received a Ph.D. from Harvard for his research.

As long as the minority community condemns the facts about their deficiencies, no amount of taxpayer spending will rescue them from poverty.

and here it comes.....
Commissioner Douglas H. Shulman, who was appointed by President Bush in 2008 and held by President Obama, left the agency in Nov. 9, 2012. Any pre-election misconduct would have had to occur on his watch.

Think again. The Benghazi lies and coverup and the targeting of conservatives by the IRS isn't going away. Sorry to burst your Fox-fixated bubble.
This from NBC today.
http://firstread.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/05/13...
Okay, since I know most liberals won't even bother clicking on the link, here's a recap of this article by NBC today:

"The White House’s terrible, horrible Friday spills over: Everything that happened last Friday -- the reporting on the revisions to the Benghazi talking points, the news that the IRS had targeted conservative groups, reporters pummeling White House Press Secretary Jay Carney at his briefing -- represented the White House’s worst day since the first presidential debate. And it all spilled over to the Sunday shows and today’s news.

"Sen. Dianne Feinstein alluded to on 'Meet the Press' yesterday when NBC’s David Gregory asked her what she would have liked to see Obama or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton do different after Benghazi.'Oh, to move faster. To say,‘Yes, this was in fact a terrorist act.’ I mean, it was so evident.'”

By your logic; the government should institute forced marriage and stone people to death for having sex before marriage!
Oh yes, the rightwing authoritarian at his finest.
Then you can hire sex police to make sure no one is doing it; they can knock on doors; "papers please?"
"Book 'em Danno, these two aren't married"
Galt does not want the government to do anything on this subject, or any other. In black teenagers want to ruin their lives for momentary pleasure, that's their choice.

An interview of Susan Rice asking penetrating questions would have been much more informative.

Neither will denying reality, by trying to view things behind rose colored glasses!

1.Immigration and the application of national security (lack of) policies, now SUCK.
2.That nightmare for working class people known as Obammercare-SUCKS.
3. The wasted BILLIONs of bail outs of FAILOUTS via BAD choices of past proven NON efficient means of energy production-SUCKS.
4. And the continual around every new turn displays of incompetence in action-SUCKS.

Shooting down a domestic airliner is far different than blowing up a bunch of Muslims in Benghazi. There was zero warning on the first three planes. But we were apparently prepared to shoot down the fourth plane.
There was no downside in blowing the crap out of Benghazi, even after we knew that the Americans were dead. Send a message, the only message that those people understand.
Most liberals just don't seem to get radical Islamists aren't afraid to die and are more than ready to die if it means killing more innocents. Neither do they get there are some things worth dying for; namely, getting rid of radical Islamists who aren't afraid to die.
