The Hanger

There are a lot of ways to cheat at cards and some of the tactics are very subtle but one dead give away that someone is dealing from the bottom of the deck is a hanger.
The hanger: Made popular by the poker-playing police in Rounders, the hanger is virtually impossible to catch. It is however a dead giveaway that a player is dealing from the bottom of the deck. When an individual card is being dealt from a deck, it is uninhibited by any card above it. When a card is dealt from the bottom however, it can push out the card above it if pushed out with too much force. This results in the bottom card of the deck sticking out from the rest of the deck. The bottom card of a deck should never pop out as a hanger.
 When politicians start accusing their competitors of being sympathetic to the KKK you're looking at a hanger. Especially if that competitor is a Yankee real estate developer, thrice married (twice to immigrants) and with a Jewish daughter (converted). For anyone with even a rudimentary understanding of the Klan knows that this bio is NOT KKK material - in fact, it's damn near anti-Klan. I suppose I should be glad that a relatively new American like Marco Rubio has no idea what the Ku Klux Klan was or is today but before he starts leveling charges of Klan sympathy he should probably brush up on US History - Maybe he can download Birth of a Nation on his iPad and watch it during downtime between campaign appearances.


And while I don't expect a Cuban-American from Miami to have much first hand knowledge of the Klan, I do expect a Mormon prelate to know some Klan history - so I was pretty surprised to hear Mitt Romney deal from the bottom of the deck in todays speech.
"Let me say that again. There’s plenty of evidence that Mr. Trump is a con man, a fake. Mr. Trump has changed his positions not just over the years, but over the course of the campaign. And on the Ku Klux Klan, daily for three days in a row."
Oh yes, lets talk about the Klan day after day after day. Romney keeps this line of attack, thoroughly despicable though it is, fresh, vibrant and, based on his comments, legitimate (which it is not). Forget about Trump, this line of attack is absolute bullshit in light of todays reality and should't be used on anyone, including Democrats who are the direct decedents of the Klan.


Let's talk about TODAY. Let's talk about Barrio Azteca, MS-13 or The Wheels of Soul who terrorize communities in a way that would make the Klan blush. These are the new Klans and someone's got to have the guts and honesty to go after them. Who do you think that someone might be?

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

The branches of government In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace : "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his
