The Warthog will live on

I love the rugged A-10. 

And there's this, to point out to all those entitlement-loving Americans who think the US is the problem, not the solution, in world security: 
The fiscal 2017 budget more than quadruples funding for the European Reassurance Initiative, to $3.4 billion. “By the end of 2017, we will be able to rapidly field a highly capable combined-arms ground force” in Europe, Carter said.

FILM THIN: Hollywood's Top Power Women Aren't Yet Excited about Hillary Clinton

MIA: Hollywood's Power Women for Hillary - Hollywood Reporter

Says one female executive (anonymous):
"Every woman I know who hasn't given to her feels guilty about it," says the industry dealmaker. "We all want a woman to be president — some of us just wish it were someone else."

Lara Bergthold, a campaign strategist at a group called RALLY, says:
The "fear factor" of the Republican field will drive donations from the notoriously liberal-leaning Hollywood. She says it is hard to imagine a Republican presidential candidate more likely to ignite anxiety in Hollywood than Donald Trump or Ted Cruz. 
"The stakes are so high given the candidates on the other side," she says. "They're scary."
Not asked in the article: ARE YOU WAITING TILL THE OUTCOME OF FBI INVESTIGATION INTO HER MISUSE OF SECRET COMMUNICATIONS? Err, not even likely many of them are aware of the facts behind the email investigation, nor do they want to accept it. They're elitists just like Hillary. They probably still suspect Benghazi was actually due to a crappy video from a whack-job pastor. Or, they just don't care about such distractions since they have no direct or apparent impact on their lives.

Flint Water Crisis -- Snyder a scapegoat for mass failures

Via Reason, on Flint MI water crisis:

This Flint Lead Poisoning: The Anatomy of Government Failure - Hit 
"A dissection of the events... suggests that it isn’t government austerity that  is responsible for the debacle but the government itself. And at every level: local, state, federal, elected officials, administrative agencies, you name it..."

Dude, it's like genocide or something! Flint water crisis brings out the worst and best in celebrity dullards

Thank you, music industry, for allowing such an idiot to prosper. It proves what focusing on specialized skills can do for a person. Too bad this idiot – P Diddy Combs or whatever he's calling himself this year – thinks his entertainment skills make him worthy to stand at the podium of social commentary. And fling turds from it.

Flint Michigan – run by Democrats since 1973 or something – only switched their water source from a Detroit water system to a local river in 2014. Problems ensued. The CITY water system and everyone else involved were slow in reacting to BLATANTLY obvious water issues. Like, the water was coming out of the tap brown. Not even beige – BROWN!

But it is not local elected officials' stupidity to blame, it is not horrible local managers, or even a failed environmental bureaucracies. It's RACISM.

More than that – it is not the fault of anyone... EXCEPT for the Republican governor. Who should be arrested.

I don't want to make bold assumptions, but I suspect this tragedy is being  used as a political tool. By idiots. For idiots.


P Diddums isn't the first to make the disgusting water problem about fostering feckless, heartless, brainless political divisiveness against a governor who had nothing to do with the decision to change sources of Flint's water. Piddle Dee Dumdum also won't be the last. 

Thankfully, the rapper-actor-producer-jerk is using his $$$ for good in the Flint situation, even if he cannot use his brains for it.

Norman Mailer is Archie Bunker. He supports Hillary Clinton, about as establishment as it can get. Calls Donald Trump America's "Middle Finger"

Norman Mailer is Archie Bunker. He defines the classic TV show character in a short piece in Hollywood Reporter. It is he, too, that's he's described. The once bold, crass and individualistic Mailer today supports Hillary Clinton, who is about as establishment as it can get. He calls Donald Trump America's "Middle Finger" -- which is an apt description. Trump is one personification of an anger over a crappy, growing, less liberty favoring government. 

But Mailer also declares that deep establishment cronies -- the Clintons -- are the right people for the job of moving forward after the Obama Administration. Someone who is tied firmly to the policies and platitudes of Obama. 

"I have enough confidence in the American people to believe that [Donald] Trump is the middle finger of their right hand. He is [the right's] f— you to all the clowns and the establishment generally because [they believe] the leadership of the country is at an all-time low. It's their way of saying, 'If you give us that kind of leadership, take this.' But I don't think it's going to take him all the way, and I think they'll retract that finger. They have to."

Note to the self-important talent: you're afraid of change. You are Archie Bunker. Clinton is the dead weight America should shed in 2016. She's a millionaire, but never did a thing outside of government besides a brief stint as a crooked lawyer and creating a family foundation. She's good for the job? Pathetic. We need to shed her and the sad, lingering adoration of talents who've lacked anything but nostalgia for decades. Like you.
