Stupid machine is acting like a Malaysian Airlines jet…it keeps crashing. This probably won’t work, but I’ll give it a try.

Ever been to a grade school talent show? We went to our granddaughters’ show on Tuesday. It was actually better than I expected. It’s a pre-K through 8th grade Catholic school, so each class had a distinct uniform. The pre-k-kindergarten group sang along with a recording of the old Sunday School song,wise man/foolish man (built his house upon the sand). I’m sure they practiced doing all the gestures in unison, but one just stared off looking for his mom, and another girl who will be the class clown grinned and danced to the tune in her head. There were skits, a first-grader read jokes off her note cards, one kid did a hula hoop, one had several duck calls he demonstrated, and the biggest surprise was a boy from Miss Isabel’s fifth grade class who pulled a violin out and announced he was going to play Orange Blossom Special. I was ready to cringe, since there’s nothing as ear-splitting as someone on the violin when they don’t know how to play. Apparently he started years ago because he was really good.

Three 8thgraders were hosting the show and they gave away ‘Mary’ awards, named after the school, St. Mary’s, to teachers in appreciation. There were certificates for best musician, most helpful, athletic, most compassionate,etc. There was an award for best principal (the head honcho lady) and one for knowing the most about the Saints. The priest won that one. They even had an award for the best janitor (they only have one). One of the kids ran to get him and when he came into the auditorium the room erupted. They really love this little man.

I know this is boring, but there’s a point. The children were all quiet, patient and respectful. My stepdaughter, who I consider one of my own kids, teaches at a public school in another city but sends her kids to Catholic school, like many other teachers do. There’s a reason for that.

This video is a tragic example of what public school teachers are subjected to when faced with trying to teach violent, ignorant savages anything useful. The 62 year old teaher took away the 16 year old ninth grader’s phone and was pummeled. In my day, this would have been unthinkable. Sadly, if the man had tried to defend himself or fight back, the little darlins’ mama and her baby daddy would appear out of nowhere to sue the poor man and the school to get a chunk of money. Our educational system has been destroyed by the teachers’ unions and the democrats the unions and welfare leeches vote for perennially.

Apparently the video has been removed…use your imagination.

“It’s troubling that in our society today students think that inside a school they can put their hands on each other and teachers as well,” said Jonathan Hodges, a veteran school board member. “I went online trying to find this video and I found numerous videos of teachers being attacked by their students.”

    Attorney General nominee defends Obama immigration changes

    If confirmed as attorney general, I would be myself. I would be Loretta Lynch,” the nominee told her Senate confirmation hearing as Republicans showered criticism on the current occupant of the job, Eric Holder. They said Holder was contemptuous of Congress and too politically close to Obama, and repeatedly demanded assurances that Lynch would do things differently.

    “You’re not Eric Holder, are you?” Texas Republican John Cornyn, one of the current attorney general’s most persistent critics, asked at one point.

    “No, I’m not, sir,” Lynch responded with a smile

    If she were not as virulently racist as Barry is,she wouldn’t be there.
    this is all a pile of horseshit.

    Obama Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch Started Sorority With Holder’s Wife
    There are no coincidences in politics

    But can Lynch as an investigator really be objective when it comes to her predecessor, who is currently in contempt of Congress over Fast and Furious scandal document obstruction and would probably warrant investigation from an unbiased successor? After all, Lynch goes way back with Holder’s wife.

    Surprise! RIOT BREAKS OUT at St. Louis Civilian Review Board Meeting #Ferguson

    Witnesses told News 4 the fight began when a woman who was getting ready to leave was pushed aside by the Business Manager of the St. Louis Police Officers Association, Jeff Roorda. Roorda was addressing 18th Ward Alderman Terry Kennedy.

    “I was literally just trying to leave the meeting and I got caught in whatever Roorda and Kennedy had going on in their exchange,” said Cachet Currie, the woman who was pushed. “Roorda just jumped out into the aisle, pushed me over, and tried to get to Kennedy. I’m like ‘wait a minute, don’t push me.’ Then he started going off on me, pushing me.”

    its frightening to think he actually believes what he’s saying.
    Boehner said, “I do, I do. Listen, I was the tea party before there was a tea party.”

    The speaker elaborated, “I understand their concerns, I understand their frustrations. But we have a constitution that we abide by and we’re gonna live by.” He said they’re going to both hold Obama accountable and try to find common ground with him in the next two years.

    Obama speech in India: On him being Muslim, “as if that were somehow a bad thing”

    Obama] noted the persistent false rumors that he is a Muslim, not a Christian. “There have been times where my faith has at times been questioned by people who don’t know me, or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” Obama said. What is a “bad thing” is that Obama is a pathological liar, and he has hidden so much from the American people, it’s hard to know what is and isn’t true.

    Michelle Obama Is Not Amused While Meeting New King of Saudi Arabia:

    The First Lady, 51, was snapped alongside her husband Barack Obama in Riyadh, paying respects to King Salman bin Abdulaziz, the successor of the late King Abdullah, during what was a quick stop in the country for the funeral. As King Salman shook hands with the President, the First Lady was photographed frowning at the royal.

    Abortion Protesters Don’t Count?
    It was a breathtaking sight.

    Except virtually no one watching the networks ever saw it. CBS gave the story a paltry 15 seconds. NBC “News” blacked it out entirely. So too did ABC “News.”

    Liberal journalists have made it perfectly clear over the years that only radical leftist protesters count. In fact, two or three of them together matter more than hundreds of thousands of social conservatives. The “problem”? You could argue that social conservatives march peacefully, prayerfully, with no violent clashes with the police and no destruction of property, and since it doesn’t bleed, it doesn’t lead.

    Banned By The Hiltons

    First, the Free Republic, then Reddit, and now the Hiltons!

    On a recent trip to St. Louis, my friend and regular commenter, Grunt of Monte Cristo, decided he check in and get the latest here at DMF. Much to his surprise…..Access Denied! He writes:

    “The attached file Diog2orig.jpg is an actual cell phone photo I took last night of a walk-up computer screen at a hotel in St. Louis denying access to Diogenes Middle Finger. Can you believe it? Your site is too smutty for the Hilton Hotels.”
    I guess we here at DMF haven’t reached the high level of party girl skankiness of some members of the Hilton family, and don’t yet meet their criteria for high standards to display for their hotel guest. Our new Badge of Honor!


    • Thanks, Pete. Just before taking that picture, I took this one:

      Me and youngest son took a little drive through Ferguson Sunday night while he was still wearing tactical law enforcement gear from an earlier event. For some reason, that made him nervous. But all was calm and we didn’t have any trouble. It was a good opportunity for life lessons, too. When I got back into the car after stopping to take a leak in a local convenience store (that hadn’t been looted yet), I pointed out to my son that the majority of people in Ferguson were really good folks. It’s not like it’s Chicago, for Pete’s sake. 😉 When I held the door open for a young black woman as I was leaving the store, she said: “Thank you, Sir!” I told him: “You see? Not everybody’s a ghetto rat around here.” Son of MonteCristo just retorted: “She just said that because you’re an old man!” Good times.

    Stevie Wonder Uses Funeral For Gospel Legend To Rail Against Racists Thwarting Obama’s Agenda Because He’s Black…

    Stevie Wonder was one of many high profile performers at gospel legend Andraé Crouch’s funeral in Los Angeles on Jan 21. But some funeral attendees were surprised when Wonder made political statements at the event instead of focusing on the Grammy-winning singer’s life and accomplishments.

    The roots of racial hatred run deep
    Video at link
    Wonder’s remarks from the event can be heard in the video below around the 1:20 mark. There, Wonder, 64, says: “We live in a time where I believe we have a president that truly wanted to see the world come together, to see this nation come together, but yet too much, too many people are judging their dislike of him based on the color of his skin. And I know there are some who say, ‘No that’s not true,’ but I’m telling you what I see.”

    Is it just me……

    ….or is the First lady’s Butt growing exponentially with the her
    husband’s ballooning national debt?


  20. I knew you all would want to know about the follow-up on this local story that has gained national press attention. The question always was, harmless prank or big jerks? Alas, it was the latter.

    They’re just lucky dino rustlin’ doesn’t carry the same penalties as for livestock, ’round these parts.


    • I like the part where the owner wouldn’t press charges if they told her why they stole it. “Um,… because we was drunk?”


      • Grunt: “Um,… because we was drunk?”

        If I was at the desktop, I’d search my bookmarks for the story I read recently, from the home town when I was a yout’. Some local teens drove down to Texas and stole … I’m trying to remember what. Something like Sam Houston’s tombstone, but not that. I could guess which ones of my older brothers’ friends they were, but I don’t know who did that particular bit of thievery. I know a guy who would know – heck, I suspect he was in on it, based on the M.O. Anyway, somehow, they tracked whatever it was down to the home town and it was returned. Intact and unharmed. On condition nobody was named or charged. (Which narrows the perps to a few of the upper-crust families.) That’s how you pull a prank. A good one.

        Busting up the dinosaur statue and dumping him – a scumbag move. They’re scumbags, regardless of whether alcohol was involved.

        I’d hoped for one of those deals where they move him around and photograph him and put it on the web. “Today, Dino is visiting Kansas….”

    It’s amazing — but not surprising — at how many people are making fun of my mom about a comment in her speech in Iowa recently:

    “‘The Man,’ can only ride ya when your back is bent.”

    People went nuts over this, saying it didn’t make sense.

    I wonder how many of them know that analogy came from Martin Luther King Jr?
