Diversity Bridge Is Breaking, My Fair Lady
FTA: "Prior to pancaking, Diversity Bridge had been championed as “an engineering feat come to life.” One of the geniuses who accomplished this “feat” is an engineer who was hailed by President Obama in 2015 as a “champion of change”: Atorod Azizinamini, director of FIU’s Accelerated Bridge Construction Center (now renamed the Accelerated Bridge Destruction Center). The firm that built the bridge, Munilla Construction Management (MCM), is run by the Munilla brothers—Raul, Juan, Jorge, Lou, Fernando, and Pedro (is that a construction firm or the latest incarnation of Menudo?). And then we have Leonor Flores, MCM’s senior manager.
“Diversity” should never trump competence.

What? Oh, sorry. You know him as St. Patrick. He was little Maewyn Succat at home in Scotland with his parents, Calpornius and Conchessa. Dad was a Roman diplomat, and Mom was a niece of St. Martin of Tours, a Hungarian who grew up in Italy but mostly lived in France. Then Maewyn got grabbed by pirates and sold to the Irish. It’s a familiar story, not unlike many of our own family histories.

NATION OF ISLAM AND THE DEMOCRATS: A PERFECT MATCH

It's not enough that the former editor of The New York Times, Jill Abramson, admitted to carrying around an Obama doll in her purse, but now there's a deal in the works for an Obama show on Netflix.
Howie Carr has some very humorous show ideas:
Carr: Barack TV Sounds Like A Sit-con To Me
Carr reminds us that there are many that are doubling down on stupid when it comes to Barack "Leading From Behind" Obama.

I don't watch the Oscars and haven't seen any of the recent crop of Oscar-worthy films, but this story is so rich in irony that I felt I had to share it. Bear with me.
Frances McDormand’s Alleged Oscar Thief Arrested
Oscar winner Frances McDormand's acceptance speech included a phrase "inclusion rider" that is going to become a household term. She put out a call for fellow actors to insist that an inclusion rider be put in their contracts that would reflect real demographics, i.e., women, minorities, LGBTQ, disabled, etc..
Wouldn't you know that mere hours later, her Oscar would be "allegedly" stolen by an entitled minority who felt it was his.
Oh, the irony.
Frances, welcome to my world. I live awash in diversity 24/7/365. I don't live in a gated community and I don't have armed security on my payroll.
And you and your ilk want to take my guns away?
Dream on, Frances.

It may not mean too much to many of you today, but I happened to run across this on Powerline Try To Remember and I thought it was worth remembering.
Composer Harvey Schmidt died last week in Houston at the age of 88. Most notably, Schmidt wrote the music for "The Fantasticks" (don't forget the 'k') and it opened at the Sullivan Street Playhouse in Greenwich Village in 1960 and continued its run for a mere 42 years.
Did you know that Jerry Orbach, well known as Det. Lenny Briscoe on Law & Order, played the character of El Gallo who launched the show when it opened in 1960.
What an interesting life Mr. Orbach lived.
Twitter Is Censoring Donald Trump Jr.’s Twitter Feed — On A Drudge Report Tweet On Maxine Waters
Now let's see Twitter censor Maxine "low IQ and outta her fraking gourd" Waters' twitter feed for her racist, bigoted statements about conservatives. The phrase "potentially sensitive content" cuts both ways, right?

The Silicon Valley Elite’s Latest Status Symbol: Chickens
FTA: "Their pampered birds wear diapers and have personal chefs — but lay the finest eggs tech money can buy."
How is it that such "supposedly" smart people make such bird-brained choices?
For this belated Cat Blog Friday...
... a cat unfairly accused of hiding in a tree armed with an assault rifle.
Newport Police 'issue warning' To Cat That Looks Like It's Holding An Assault Rifle
Officials said, "It was determined that the cat wasn’t in possession of a high powered weapon, but rather holding onto a “non-lethal branch.”
The cat was issued a warning and sent home, but where does it go to get it's sterling reputation back?
Try to have a good weekend despite this episode of feline inequity.

I thought this story was something out of The Onion, but it's real...
College Dropout Refuses To Leave Her Dorm Room
This 32-year-old woman has racked up $94,000 in unpaid residence hall charges since 2016 when she dropped out of Hunter College, but refused to leave the dorm room.
The unmitigated gall of this woman is appalling, but the gutless wonders in the residence life department disgust me even more.

Will CNN ever learn?
Shooting Survivor: CNN Gave Me "Scripted Question" After Denying Question About Armed Guards
Colton Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC who shielded classmates during the shooting, said, "CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted."
CNN wouldn't even entertain the idea of hiring veterans as armed school security guards during the scripted gun control agenda driven "town hall."
Every weekday I watch HLN's morning news show. HLN is CNN's sister network. Yes, my husband teases me about getting brainwashed and defecting to the other side, but I watch it anyway. This morning the lead story was the "town hall" and the clips aired were gotcha moments by the useful tool children and some parents demanding gun control.
There was no mention of Colton Haab and the allegations of CNN's "manipulation" of the program.
I'm curious to see how this newest CNN fake news bust will play out with the other arbiters of "news."
