Republican opponent of Elizabeth Warren punched in the face by Elizabeth Warren supporter
Inter alia The Constitution is like a noxious fart to some liberals. Liberals see the Court as a political institution; conservatives, more as an arbitrator of laws and guardians of the perceived original intent of the Constitution. As in the case of the military (that can by fiat include women in combat units, green-light gays in the military, or enhance transgendered recruitment), liberals appreciate an institution that can bypass the messy process of legislation in a constitutional republic and short-circuit the clingers, deplorables, and irredeemables and their often-Neanderthal, obstructionist representatives. Too often, the red-staters vote supposedly against their own interests and are not capable of seeing, much less voting for, what is good for them. Instead, a majority of highly educated “apolitical” elite minds can perform the role of Platonic Guardians. Ruth Bader Ginsburg has claimed that abortion was a valuable institution because it ostensibly targeted inordinately the poor and non-white: Frankly, I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion. I doubt many if any, baseball umpires are progressive. Their career is enforcing the rules of the game. Like judges should do. We are in dangerous times. Amid the hysteria over the Russian summit, the Mueller collusion probe, nonstop unsupported allegations and rumors, the Strzok and Page testimonies, the ongoing congressional investigations into improper CIA and FBI behavior, and a completely unhinged media, there is a growing crisis of rising tensions between two superpowers that together possess a combined arsenal of 3,000 instantly deployable nuclear weapons and another 10,000 in storage. That latter existential fact apparently has been forgotten in all the recriminations. Good on Trump for taking a step in that direction.
The sky is falling! Democracy is over! No matter the issue, liberals love to preen about “values” when it comes to Trump because it masks the sad facts about their own degenerate lives. I mean, when your “value” is “social justice,” what other value do you need? It’s all manufactured hysteria, of course, and most normal Americans see right through the hand-wringing and pearl-clutching.
Did you notice the SCOTUS protest signs? Some were pre-printed with the name blank. Being Black, giving your kids phonetic names, dressing like a thug, joining black only groups isolates you from the wider culture. Factoid There are only 22 countries that England has never invaded. (In the WORLD!)
It's hot here and everywhere Not something we do anymore, but it was fun when we were fit and slim. We especially enjoyed the many hot springs in the Cascade Mountains. Occasionally we had them to ourselves, usually there several others enjoying a soak. I will never forget the day when a group of girls from a local college came to one of the larger pools.
I had no intention of making a pervertable. It just happened. I bound several quick ties together (with a quick tie) this morning to store in the Jeep. I have done this many times but never realized that it could be used as a bundle of switches. There is no need to wait until growing season to get supple switches. And they will last all year. I am not going to use them. I am not even going to suggest you try it. But if you are pain slut, this one is for you. Imagine how they would feel on the thighs.
The thing about an angry mob with their emotions “turned up to 11” is they can’t live there indefinitely. The likelihood of more left-wing violence is real and growing daily now because Democrats are trying to keep everyone emotional over a dozen things at once. The last 2 weeks’ worth of Supreme Court decisions, the Kennedy retirement, the border, ICE, health care, taxes, Trump’s existence, etc., etc., are all “WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!” moments to the mob. Rage is hard enough to direct, rage against everything is impossible to control.

To understand the madness gripping American leftists, try to see the world through their eyes.
Like the Palestinians who mark Israel’s birth as their nakba, or tragedy, you regard Donald Trump’s 2016 victory as a catastrophe. It’s the last thing you think of most nights, and the first thing most mornings.
You can’t shake it or escape it. Whatever you watch, listen to or read, there are reminders — Donald Trump really is president.
You spend your tax cut even as you rail against the man who made it happen. And you are pleased that cousin Jimmy finally got a job, though you repeat the daily devotional that Barack Obama deserves credit for the roaring economy.
And now this — Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring, and Trump gets another Supreme Court pick. The court might tilt right for the rest of your life. He’s winning. NOOOOOOOOO!!! In a nutshell, our visit to the tortured mind of a Trump hater explains everything from Saturday’s mass marches to why a Virginia restaurant owner declared No Soup for Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Their loathing for Trump is bone-deep and all-consuming. This is war and they take no prisoners. For most marchers, border policies offer a chance to vent. They didn’t make a peep when Obama did the same thing. If children are their main concern, they could help the 23,000 New York City kids living in shelters. Or they could have attended the funeral of Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, the innocent Bronx teen hacked to death by a Dominican gang. Instead, they give in to Trump Derangement Syndrome, which causes them to immediately and absolutely adopt the opposite position of the president’s — facts and common sense be damned. He is reaching a high-water mark in his presidency, with his support growing and expanding. Events, including big Supreme Court rulings and Kennedy’s retirement, give him chances to pad his advantage. Cue the wailing.
Bogey saw a girdle online and asked me about it. I looked and it's supposed to lift up the fanny. The support ends under the cheeks and the cheeks were bare. That could give quite a bit of sting. I say “okay”. It was ordered and took forever to get here from China (something about a slow boat LOL). It arrived yesterday. The front is quite nice and not too firm for my taste. But the back was another story. I started laughing out loud, Bogey didn’t. The backside is padded, not open! We decided that we would try it out the next day.
Today was experiment day - I brought in two paddles that he doesn’t normally use on me. That test went great - very very little feeling at all. This is a good girdle :) Bogey tried out another paddle and gives a hard swing! Okay, I felt that and the new girdle is not pain proof! A week later Bacall suggested we do some girdle play and told me to stay in the den while she got ready. When she called me, it was to show that she had found that the pads in the girdle could be removed. She thought the girdle made her look better. I agreed. I liked the look, the stitching for the pad pocket framed her bottom just right. The short legs ended in lace. I liked that.
She took a long paddling. She said either the girdle provided protection or she was feeling bulletproof. I say it was the latter. Her cheeks were bright red. Total cost of fun $7
