How Can They Be This Dumb?

So…I don’t follow politics much anymore but happened to read something that popped up on my phone while I was checking stocks that I follow. Yep, if you want to look at stock performance on your phone, you’re going to be solicited for indoctrination.

Here’s the deal, as our pudding brained fake president would say, the demotards are pushing a 9/11 style commission to have a huge, multi-year review of the protest at the Capitol on Jan 6th. As I read the article I was actually a bit confused…I thought it might have been from months ago because it contained obvious factual errors, but no, it was current. We all know how this goes. The demotards say, ‘hey man just searching for the truth, can I have limitless amounts of money so spend on my friends at fancy law firms that will tell me a 2 year story with the exact timing and plot lines that will help me with reelection as far out as 2024? Just looking for the truth.’

And guess what? Thirty five moronic republicans voted with the demotards to pass the bill. Not one or two (depends how you count Liz Cheney) but 35!

So, like, how can they possibly be this dumb? How would this help them? What is to be gained? Do we really need another fat, bloated NeverTrump sissy whinging on MSNBC?

McConnell says its dead in the Senate but you never know…he can be bought with an eight ball and a waddle massage.

BTW – the article maintains that 5 people were killed in the ‘riot’ and Trump’s whereabouts during the ‘insurrection’ were not known. Also, a building cop committed suicide a few days after the riot and his family wants answers. I have no idea how these things are related but I think we are to believe he killed himself because of the protest. It all makes sense, if you don’t think much.

Pure, undiluted propaganda for fat, dumb lefties so they can scream at Goldberg.

Eat a bag of donuts you clam strip.

UPDATE: Mittens is all for it! His hair says bring on the truth commissions so we can keep hundreds of Americans in solitary confinement for attending a political rally! They deserve it! Pass the clam strips!

  1. Jay got pre stomped. LOL

    Am I lazy? Yes. Is PJ lazy? I don’t know.

    Is Jay a FPOLS? Not really but I stand by my decision to STOMP.

  2. wakey wakey

    We live in a post-rational world.

  3. Greenland is a horrible, horrible movie. I don’t care how bored you are.

  4. The only reason we watched the entire thing was because it was like a car accident.

  5. Morning, cheese bags.

  6. Car in, since you’re the resident metal expert, what are your thoughts on Black Label Society? Just kinda half assed discovered them last night.

  7. I don’t know them. My tastes tend toward prog-metal- so most of the stuff I follow branches out from there. I listened to a few songs – reminds me of Black Sabbath stuff.

  8. I’d say there’s a connection.

  9. So, like, how can they possibly be this dumb? How would this help them? What is to be gained? Do we really need another fat, bloated NeverTrump sissy whinging on MSNBC?

    It’s a mixture of arrogance, stupidity, and party in-fighting. Mostly the latter. They want Trump gone from the party, and since 2020 didn’t do it (there was no “Blue Wave” to serve as a repudiation) then they’re hoping that a 1/6 commission will shape the narrative enough. Some might have voted for it simply because they don’t realize that it’s going to be a shitshow, or because they think that somehow they can turn it to their favor. Hell, they may be hoping for a shitshow thinking that it will turn Americans against the Dems.

  10. A real investigation would bring all the agent provocateurs to light, so there might be some naive dipshits in congress who think that could happen. It won’t, but this is congress we’re talking about.

  11. Should “waddle massage” be “wattle massage”?

  12. I’m so sad I didn’t get to post my memes today, with my totally original title. Now I have to think up another one.

    Well played, MJ.

  13. wow, killed it early today

  14. Thursday morning has a lot of meetings.

    And I’m taking advantage of that to look at job openings. I’m pretty sure I’ve been wedged in this current bullshit too long to have any marketable skills, though.

  15. Hello, dummies and Geoff.

  16. Same song, different venue

    Do you stop and listen?

  17. I feel ya, leon. I’ve been stuck in low level admin work so long any other skills and aptitudes have withered away.

    When I joke about a career change to warlordism post-Boog, I’m only half joking anymore.

  18. I used to be a pretty good developer. I could be again, but I’m out of practice and the rest of the world uses a very different toolset than what I’m permitted to utilize in the customer environment.

  19. The Santa Barbara job was great, but it was a small company that required me to live in SoCal where there is no future.
    The Columbus job wasn’t horrible, but there was no advancement that I could see, low pay, and the office culture wasn’t a good fit.
    This job is better pay, and work from home, but there’s almost no analytical component. It’s regulatory analysis for small rule changes.

    I’m beginning to regret my life choices. I should have become a farrier.

  20. And I’m taking advantage of that to look at job openings.

    Don’t envy you. I’m thinking of retiring early in a couple of years. I won’t be where I wanted to be, IRA-wise, but caregiving for my wife and being demotivated by the changes in our country are combining to make me bail out well before age 67.

  21. If I could/can maintain my salary for another 10 years or so, I can probably retire to hobby farming. I’m just not getting anything out of the work I do for my current employer and I keep getting pushed further into this SME role that I never wanted. The temptation is to just stick it out until the gig/contract ends, but that won’t necessarily get me to 2031, and every month that goes by my transferable skills atrophy that much more.

  22. Always hard to figure out which horse to ride and for how long when you get past the midpoint in your career. Being a thermal R&D guy, which is a hard living if you’re not in academia, I was working for 3 companies just to keep the spice flowing and to hedge my bets. But now I’m down to 1.

    So I spent the last 5 months writing proposals to make sure my last few years are funded – hence my absence from IB.

  23. Christ, don’t any of you like what you do?

    This is sad.

  24. Christ, don’t any of you like what you do?

    ——————————–

    No, it’s been a while since I was happy at work.

  25. I like what I do and have done in my career.

  26. I have been blessed way beyond what I deserve

  27. No, it’s been a while since I was happy at work.

    That’s a shame. Last time you came through Denver it seemed like you were having fun with it.

  28. Christ, don’t any of you like what you do?

    Work is toil and soul-crushing for the vast majority anymore, especially in anything to do with IT or development (when Americans are allowed to do it at all). The only devs having any fun are the hackers building ransomware and other black ice. Even most game devs are either broke (because they live on patreon/kickstarter pennies) or burnt because they work 80-hour weeks.

  29. Christ, don’t any of you like what you do?
    ————————

    Have you talked to your mom lately?

  30. Honestly, I’d probably be happier with my job if my personal life was actually going somewhere. Even prior to the lockdown I wasn’t happy, because the dancing community in Columbus was so small. Now that I don’t have the option in DC due to vaccine requirements (I’m not getting the shot!) it’s depressing me.

  31. Burnout plus a total lack of confidence in leadership is what got me to this point.

  32. My advice to you is to masturbate furiously.

  33. Geoff, I really was having fun, I did some really cool things, but I’ve just seen too much gore and suffering too keep going.

  34. Shitty leadership can make a big difference. Makes the good hands look elsewhere, the average hands tread water hoping it will get better, and the poor hands are happy as pigs in shit since they can hide down in the cracks and never be noticed.

  35. Cause yer wookin po nub in awl de wong pwaces.

  36. My job is great.

    It’s interesting and fun but it’s mostly because of the people.

  37. I think it’s wattle. At least that’s what I meant.

    The image of cocaine Mitch getting a wattle
    massage absolutely kills me.

    How are you guys not dying laughing?

  38. For MJ:

  39. First time I read through it that was also my main concern. I even listened to Jackie Gleason thinking he would cover the topic. Funny as hell but no elucidation of what a waddle massage might be. Wattle massage makes sense and is funny but I feel like we’re missing a joke about a waddle massage somewhere

  40. Now you’re thinking.

  41. Jerry Nadler could waddle to his wattle massage.

  42. Boat launch is tomorrow. Anyone want to come help swab the decks and polish the hull above the water line? Free beer and cigars.

  43. Anyone want to come help swab the decks and polish the hull above the water line?

    It’s a trap. Those are all euphemisms.

  44. I just entered a Letterkenny wormhole. Thanks, Sobek. I ❤️ Shoresy.

  45. MJ, you say you enjoy the people. Laughing at them or are they clever enough to make you laugh at their wit?

  46. My strong suit used to be my people skills, now I don’t have the energy or patience to fake liking people.

    Just going to the grocery store is a lesson in self control. I hate masks, however they hid my mouthing “dumbass” “prick” and self-centered asshole.”

  47. Man, I’m turning into a more crotchety version of Hotspur.

    And get off my fricking lawn you mannerless son of a whore!

    But I mean that in a nice way.

  48. Jim bro knows Jackie Gleason???

    I loved his show. God, I’m old.

  49. Knows who Jackie Gleason was.

  50. “Florida State seminal vesicles “ is pretty funny.

  51. Watched Season 7 of Letterkenny in 2 days. Jonesing for Season 8.

  52. Mare, have you watched Letterkenny?

  53. I saw someone render Florida as a Dragon Shout the other day and now I can’t read it without thinking of it that way.

    Florida Man holds a gator under one arm and a taco in the other. He is assaulted by Haitians.

    “Flo… Ri… DAH!” shouts Florida Man.

    Haitians are scattered by unseen blast of energy. Gator giggles.

  54. It was linked here, before it was available for streaming. You paste eating window lickers keep me updated on memes and 💩. CoWs are constantly freaked by the old lady that knows 💩

  55. MJ, you say you enjoy the people. Laughing at them or are they clever enough to make you laugh at their wit?
    ———————————
    The people who work for me are pretty good. They’re capable and get the job done. In that group are a few stand outs that I really like to work with. Developing people and watching them grow is the best part of any job.

    And the woman I work for is great. She’s funny, smart, and very serious about her job. But she’s a ton of fun. Always willing to help and truly invested in the success of people around her.

    There are a few people above me that are really interesting but I enjoy that too. One guy has the biggest ego I’ve ever encountered. He refers to himself in the third person…in email. I’ve never even heard of that before. He’s a good guy but just a completely hilarious character.

    I’ve only worked there for about 3 months but I get why people stay forever.

  56. Can I send you a resume? I’ll throw in a free 3-month sub to Mare’s OnlyFans.

  57. No, Oso, but I could be turned.

  58. MJ, do not leave this job.

  59. Mare, Letterkenny on Hulu. Super serial. Mythic Quest on Apple+. Ted Lasso on Apple +

  60. Dan is cheap. We binge and cancel. Getting ready to update Amazon Prime for last season of Bosch

  61. My problem isn’t that I don’t like my job. It’s the paycheck, and the fact that since it’s a small operation and I don’t have the proper skill and mindset, I have no prospects for promotion. And now of course we have the economy-wrecking usurper making the quest for more gainful employment that much harder.

    I’m not going to go all “woe is me”. I’m neither solely blaming myself nor laying it all on external factors, sorting it all out is madness. Just describing where I am on the map. Also, that some fucker spilled coffee on it, and why can’t you slobs keep from tearing up the map when you re-fold it? Sheesh.

  62. On the plus side, I got to explain that the name on 60 year old paperwork “isn’t THAT Dick Cheney”, so there is that.

  63. I thought Mare was on GrannyFans.

  64. Yes, my OnlyFans would tune in regularly and pay the big bucks to watch me needlepoint problem solve while wearing workout pants and a workout shirt with an inevitable stain on it. But I will wear makeup and look into the camera and run my tongue over my lips.

    Welp, I just grossed myself out.

  65. *renews sub for 6 months*

  66. BITD we were told not to put savings on our mortgage application. Agent told us to put “Parental Gift”. I hated the lie at the time. Hate it more today. This is BS. No one can speak about it without committing perjury. You know. The thing that D rats get absolved over and the rest of us go to prison.

  67. Yes, my OnlyFans would tune in regularly and pay the big bucks to watch me needlepoint problem solve while wearing workout pants and a workout shirt with an inevitable stain on it. But I will wear makeup and look into the camera and run my tongue over my lips.

    Welp, I just grossed myself out.

    Add videos raising chickens and that’s half the homesteading content on YouTube.

  68. You’re watching the wrong homestead channels, Alex. Stick to wholesome stuff where the wife doesn’t show skin for thumbnails.

  69. Why would I do something crazy like that? It defeats the whole purpose.

  70. Well you’re not going to learn much about chicken tractors or hugelkultur that way.

  71. *Googles “bikini chicken tractor” and “naughty hugelkutur”*

  72. Is there a spreadsheet somewhere that charts tip ratio versus bartender skirt length?

    I’m about to lose the mortgage payment.

  73. Worth it.

  74. In other news, my life is awesome and I’m the luckiest dog alive.

  75. I have to go shovel composted horseshit for a couple of hours so I can plant pumpkins. I’ll leave you with Tim Allen giving the commencement address at Hillsdale:

  76. HA! Enjoy, Pups (the drink). You deserve it for your meme work.

  77. Ask if you can sniff her butt.

  78. Not at all the reason the bar is full of guys that look like me.

    Total coincidence.

  79. I’d give her more than just a tip…

  80. One dude keeps ordering bottled beer from the bottom shelf.

    WE KNOW MAN WE KNOW.

  81. I bet you could talk her in to a Friday gig.

    “Baby, what do you think about becoming Internet Famous?

  82. I bet she’d like to touch your seminal vesicles.

  83. I like that glass.

    Was I suppose to notice something else?

  84. I’m currently in a nerd fight on FB. MY JCL cred is on the line

  85. One dude keeps ordering bottled beer from the bottom shelf.

    Not all heroes wear capes.

  86. oso knows job control language for mainframes?

  87. I like that glass.

    Shot of Cabo Wabo silver. It’s a tequila bar.

    I’m home safe now, let’s not speak of it again until next thursday.

  88. lol

  89. Ethan just got Erin to give him a mullet. He’s been growing it out for a year, since he started this military thing.

    Now that he’s got 6 weeks or so until he ships out … I guess he’s having fun with the crazy hair.

  90. I enjoy my job most of the time, but then I get paid to break things. The CRT training is coming, and that’s going to suck, but I outlasted Clinton and Obama, I can outlast this poser.

  91. I see Rodney Dangerfield and don’t see Jackie Gleason, am I missing something?

  92. I don’t “like” my job, but I’m really good at it and I don’t hate going in to work every day.

  93. Brain fart Roamy

    Rodney it is

  94. 2 batches of ice cream, mint chocolate chip and chocolate. vanilla is made and mine!

  95. Just when I think I hate my job something really good will happen that redeems it until the next time I think I hate it.

  96. I have no boss and I do whatever the fuck I want.

    Work rocks.

  97. Usually.

  98. Not at all the reason the bar is full of guys that look like me.

    I get it. His feet are HUGE

    I have no boss and I do whatever the fuck I want.

    Work rocks.

    Back to male stripping?

  100. Packing. Mostly fudge.

  101. Guys, I went back to school in my mid-forties to change entire career. I’m just past fifty and I could do it all again. Trust your brain for its inherent plasticity. It is capable.

    My boss has kids and aging parents and her job is like 60 hrs per week but she just got her Masters degree during all that chaos.

    Toughen up and figure your shit out. You CAN do it. Nobody else is pigeonholing or limiting you. That’s you doing it to yourself.

  102. Pull your skirt up and get to work, Nancy.

  103. Dammit, I’m going back to mime school.

  104. IBEW apprenticeships are 6 years and I’d have to pay union dues the whole time. I can’t deprive my family of my providence for 6 years. I can tough it out and look for something else that sucks less and is closer to the skillset I’ve already fought so hard to acquire.

  105. Honestly, I bitch and moan but I am working behind the scenes to make a change. First step is paying off my debts (will likely be done this year), and then getting out of VA.

  106. One of the women I went to school with was 62 years old at the time. In the intervening few years she became an ED nurse, switched hospitals three times, and makes six figures at a state job.

    You need to jump out and take risks. Change. Change back. Figure it out.

  107. Risks have consequences, and not just for me. I have to be cautious for their sake. I’ve got until October to find my way out before I have to go to the District again. Hopefully I’ll find something and won’t need to go.

  108. Leon, if you are out here in October, I’ll buy you dinner.

  109. I’m a cautious risk-taker. I will take them, but I try to do my homework first, and like to have options for when things change. Hence why I want to clear my debts first so that I have a bit more freedom to maneuver, so-to-speak.

  110. There’s always the lucrative field of shitposting/meme-making.

  111. I’m going to re-open my LinkedIn account and post that I’m looking for a position as a professional shitposter.

    Worst thing that could happen is getting kicked off of LinkedIn.

    And Alex, I appreciate it, but I’ll be on per diem. Dinner’s on me.

  112. Darren established reasonable parameters.
