(2013) Nancy Pelosi Told House Democrats to "Embrace the Suck." Where Did That Phrase Come From?


Maybe embracing reality is synonymous with embracing the suck?

I don't know unicorns.  Either way, it's bad.





JibJab: This land

Remember this?

They are still around, but they don't seem to make these videos now.




Embracing Reality - by Robert Ringer

Embracing Reality - by Robert Ringer: As the lying, corruption, and craziness continue unabated in Washington, it’s a reminder of just how important it is to one’s sanity to embrace reality.  Reality is synonymous with truth, but, as Baltasar Gracian, the insightful and pragmatic 17th century Jesuit priest, cautioned, “Truth is abhorred by the masses.” Instead of loving truth, most people …

Lying, corruption and craziness...  Boy does that sum things up succinctly.



Perhaps Ringer is simply restating one of Napoleon Hill's success principles of "accurate thinking".



Believing in unicorns might be more pleasant than the reality, though.  So accurate thinking may be the exception, and not the rule. 



Actually, I believe in unicorns with an attitude.  They take their horns and shove it when it needs to go.  If only...

Senator Grassley: "We cannot delay. But we will do it anyway."


Comment:

Update:
9.23.18:

4:00 am:

Looks like a "tentative" agreement for her to testify on Thursday.  Maybe by phone?  She is supposedly afraid to travel.  It may be another stalling tactic.  Anyway, there are probably two Senators that Grassley may want to keep on board.  Maybe all this drama is for them and their
constituents.  Supposedly.

Speculation:

Murkowski of Alaska was primaried out of her nomination, and ran as an independent.  This was several years ago.  Maybe she can be swayed out of her vote for Kavanaugh.  Collins of Maine is in the liberal northeast.  Those two female Senators are probably holding out for the testimony.

Otherwise, why bother?

7:42 pm:

Been off the web for most of the day.  It's a data issue again.  I want to stay on track for 10 gig this month, and I used it up really quick this morning.  Anyway, I am somewhat in the dark on the news regarding this.

It appears to me, after reading through a few headlines on Free Republic, that this may get extended into next week.  As of now, I am not sure when the "deadline" is.

I have a hunch that the "three amigos" may be holding up the show.  If the GOP doesn't have them, they can't guarantee a confirmation.  Grassley may be accommodating these three.

But, to keep it in perspective, there's a lot of red state Dems up for reelection.  It may be possible to lose all three and still confirm.

But at any rate, they cannot allow themselves to be played like this.  Vote him up or down, but get it over with.

9:30 am:

I have been saying all along that this is failure theater.  They want to keep caving in to the Dems in order to throw the election to them.

Nobody is going to want to vote for these doormats, but that is the only option.  At least for the time being.

I have also said for the longest time that we need a new party.  This kind of thing has to stop.

Civil War?

 🐂💩.

There won't be any civil war.  If there was going to be a civil war, it would have happened already.

These people don't have a clue.

"VDH" has jumped the shark.


Don Surber: Why are Democrats so crazy?

comment:

Why, I was just thinking the same thing as I looked at the pictures of these people.  This is one strange group of people.

Maybe they're the hobbits that the late John McCain used to talk about.  Or maybe not, they could be like this guy...

Tricksy hobbiteses.  They got the "precious" from him, you see.

Gotta give her credit

Barnhardt is bragging about her traffic.  For a moment, I wondered--- why?  What is so new about priests molesting young boys?  Heck, it was on a TV show that I don't watch, but received as a gift--- Ray Donovan

All of Ray's brothers were Catholic and he was raised Catholic.  And they were all abused.  Even Ray, the consummate bad ass.  It's a TV show, I know.

If it is on TV, it MUST be true, right?

So, why is this news???

But you have to give her credit for breaking this story.  Nobody really gives a damn about the truth, but they love a story like this.  If they gave a damn about the truth, the guy wouldn't be Pope, now would he?  Remember, none of this is news.

Remember that priest in Ireland that "came out"?  He was applauded for that.  News, schmews.  It's not news.

This may seem like jealousy, and maybe it is.  But what is happening in the USA right now is bigger than this story, and the priest sexual abuse story is an old story.  Yet, everybody flocks to Barnhardt like she's telling them something they didn't know already.

Go figure.


Sharyl Attkisson: ""Collusion against Trump" timeline"

Again, collusion is a soft word for "conspiracy".  The Mueller investigation is about an alleged conspiracy which supposedly involved POTUS.  The Democrats want to use this in order to win the midterms and to impeach Trump.

Now this Collusion against Trump is a conspiracy, is it not?  Why use a soft word for that???

If justice is to be served, a much harder line must be taken.  Stop soft-peddling this conspiracy.  It is a major crime against the country.
