But what if they’d been fired for refusing to deliver beer to a gay wedding – what then?

My absolute favorite Monty Python skit, updated

The late, dead Bush campaign – or is it just resting?

Dead-Campaign-Sketch(A multi-millionaire donor enters Right to Rise headquarters.)

Donor: Hello, I wish to register a complaint … hello, miss?

Super PAC manager: What do you mean “miss?”

Donor: I’m sorry, I have a cold … I wish to make a complaint!

Super PAC manager: We’re closing for lunch.

Donor: Never mind that, my lad. I wish to complain about this campaign what I funded not three months ago from this very Super PAC.

Super PAC manager: Oh yes, the, uh, the Establishment Blue … What’s, uh … What’s wrong with it?

Donor: I’ll tell you what’s wrong with it, my lad. It’s dead, that’s what’s wrong with it!

Super PAC manager: No, no, he’s, uh … he’s resting.

Donor: Look, matey, I know a dead campaign when I see one, and I’m looking at one right now.

Super PAC manager: No, no, he’s not dead, he’s, he’s restin’! Remarkable candidate, the Establishment Blue, idn’it, ay? Beautiful pedigree!

Donor: The pedigree don’t enter into it. It’s stone dead.

Super PAC manager: Nononono, no, no! He’s restin’!

Donor: All right then, if he’s restin’, I’ll wake him up! (shouting at the debate lectern)Hello, Mister Florida Governor! I’ve got a lovely fresh check for you if you show…

(Super PAC manager kicks the lectern)

Super PAC manager: There, he moved!

Donor: No, he didn’t, that was you hitting the lectern!

Super PAC manager: I never!

Donor: Yes, you did!

Super PAC manager: I never, never did anything…

Donor: (yelling and hitting the cage repeatedly) Hello Jebby! Testing! Testing! Testing! Testing! This is your three a.m. phone call!

(Takes candidate and thumps head on the lectern. Pushes him toward Marco Rubio and watches him fall face-first on the floor.)

Donor: Now that’s what I call a dead campaign.

Super PAC manager: No, no … No, he’s stunned!

Donor: Stunned?!

Super PAC manager: Yeah! You stunned him, just as he was wakin’ up! Establishment Blues stun easily, major.

Donor: Um … now look, mate, I’ve definitely had enough of this. That campaign is definitely deceased, and when I funded it not three months ago, you assured me that his total lack of grassroots support was due to him being tired and shagged out following a prolonged policy conference.

Super PAC manager: Well, he’s … he’s, ah … probably pining for the Everglades.

Donor: Pinin’ for the Everglades?! What kind of talk is that? Look, why did he fall flat on his back the moment Frank Luntz mentioned him to his focus group?

Super PAC manager: The Establishment Blue prefers keepin’ on it’s back! Remarkable candidate, id’nit, squire? Lovely pedigree!

Donor: Look, I took the liberty of examining that candidate when I attended the CNBC debate, and I discovered the only reason that he had been standing on that stage in the first place was that he had been nailed there.

(pause)

Super PAC manager: Well, of course he was nailed there! If I hadn’t nailed that candidate down, he would have tackled those other candidates, tore ’em apart with his zingers, and voom! Feeweeweewee!

Donor: “Voom?!” Mate, this campaign wouldn’t “voom” if you put four million volts through it! It’s bleedin’ demised!

Super PAC manager: No, no! ‘E’s pining!

Donor: ‘E’s not pinin’! ‘E’s passed on! This campaign is no more! It has ceased to be! ‘E’s expired and gone to meet ‘is maker! ‘E’s a stiff! Bereft of life, ‘e rests in peace! If you hadn’t nailed ‘im to the debate stage ‘e’d be pushing up the daisies! ‘Is metabolic processes are now ‘istory! ‘E’s hopped the twig! ‘E’s kicked the bucket, ‘e’s shuffled off ‘is mortal coil, run down the curtain, and joined the bleedin’ choir invisible! This is an ex-candidate!

(pause)

Super PAC manager: Well, I’d better replace it, then. (takes a quick peek behind the counter) Sorry squire, I’ve had a look ’round the back of the office, and, uh, we’re right out of candidates.

Donor: I see. I see, I get the picture.

Super PAC manager: (pause) I got a Kasich.

(pause)

Donor: Pray, does it excite voters?

Super PAC manager: Nnnnot really.

Donor: Well it’s hardly a bloody replacement, is it?!

Super PAC manager: N-no, I guess not. (gets ashamed, looks at his feet)

Donor: Well?

(pause)

Super PAC manager: D’you … d’you want to fund my Senate candidate?

Donor: (grabs checkbook) Yeah, all right, sure.

Heh heh heh, or uh oh?

Mr. I will not put American boots on Syrian soil” is sending American boots, and their wearers, onto Syrian soil. What happens when Mr. “The 80s are Calling, they want their foreign policy back” experiences soldiers killed by Russian fire? Will that be another red line in the sand?

Maybe there IS one God, and maybe his name IS Allah

Former Christians welcome their usurpers

Former Christians welcome their usurpers

How else to explain Europe’s suicide, and capitulation to Islam? Protestant Church removes pews, cross and altar to make way for Muslim immigrants.

INFOWARS:

A Protestant church in Oberhausen, Germany is set to remove Christian crosses, altars and pulpits in order to accomodate 50 Muslim migrants who were invited to stay in the building.

“The parish had offered that to the city,” Oberhausen city spokesperson Rainer Suhr told media outlets.

“Before the refugees can move in, the seats have to be taken away. Also the altar, the pulpit and font are movable,” said the superintendent of the Oberhausen church district Oberhausen, Pastor Joachim Deterding.

As we reported earlier this month, the world’s first lesbian Bishop Eva Brunne suggested removing Christian crosses and symbols from a church in Stockholm in order to make the building “more inviting” for Muslims.

Brunne, who also said that the direction of Mecca should be marked, argued that the church should be treated more like an airport, where Muslim prayer rooms are provided.

The days are gone when Europe was a Christian culture, but Muslims see Christians, infedels and western civilization as one whole to be destroyed. Having given up Christianity, our sophisticated European cousins are now surrendering western civilization. Alluh akbar, baby.

And a perennial back country favorite cuts its price again

212 Taconic Road

212 Taconic Road

212 Taconic Road has cut its price again, to $3.595 million – it started at $5.495 million in 2010. Owner paid $4.9 for it in 2008 (after that owner had started two years before at $6.4), and has been trying to repent of his purchase since 2010.

Maybe some day.

Mid Country price cut

49 Grahampton

49 Grahampton

49 Grahampton is down to $5.750 million. Will that be enough? Owner paid $3.475 for it in 20000, performed
“an extensive, complete and meticulous renovation in 2009” and placed it up for sale in 2014 for $7.395. So far, the market has yawned.

Bank auction

12 Byfield Lane

12 Byfield Lane

12 Byfield Lane, once listed as high as $12 million, has sold at auction for $4.475 million. No way was this house ever my cup of tea, nor was Byfield a street on which to look for $12 million (as we’ve discussed here over the years), but $4.475 seems like a heck of a deal or, at worse, a very fair price.

Uh oh, another Round Hill Road couple?

Greenwich couple ran $15 million Oxycodone ring out of Brooklyn storefront

This mom-and-pop pharmacy was selling more than just greeting cards and junk food — it was the home base for one of the biggest illegal prescription pill rings in New York history, authorities said Thursday.

Marcin Jakacki, 35, and his wife Lilian, 49, owners of Chopin Chemist in Brooklyn, doled out pills to “customers” who often used prescriptions from stolen pads written to obviously fake names like “Chanel” and “Coach.”

The duo also sold to people without prescriptions and pocketed up to $15 million in illegal profits, enough to easily afford a swanky $3 million Connecticut home, according to the Manhattan US Attorney.

I’m running out and have no time right now to see which house they bought in 2012 for $2-$3 million (press reports differ), but Google does show them as donors to Sacred Heart and Greenwich Library, so at least they have their generosity going for them.

UPDATE: AHA! Super sleuth Mickster has found them at 106 Porchuck Road, which they paid $2 million for, and probably overpaid at that. Then again, why would they care? And, while it isn’t quite Rogues Hill Road, Porchuck leads off that once prestigious street. Close enough.

Can’t you wait JUST ONE GODDAMNED MINUTE?

The wait time for one of our booking agents is now .... 6 minutes

The wait time for one of our booking agents is now …. 6 minutes

Man who tries to turn himself in after brutally stabbing his finance to death told to go away, find someone else to tell it to.

The deputy responsible has since been reassigned pending an investigation into the incident.

“If the initial findings are true, then the Custody Deputy failed to meet the expectations of the department and we’ll take appropriate action to deal with the deputy,” said the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Department in a statement to ABC7 News.

The incident is the latest in a string of problems involving the main jail which is operated by the sheriff’s department.

I imagine it is

It’s either a part of his plan to wreck America or another example of “damn the results, our intentions are good”.

No right to a safe classroom, every right in Obamaland to disrupt others and stop them from learning.

No right to a safe classroom, every right in Obamaland to disrupt others and stop them from learning.

As school districts adopt Obama discipline “rules”, chaos reigns.

Milwaukee, St. Paul and other pro-Obama cities admit they’ve gone too soft on misbehaving students and have lost control of classrooms. Now they’re rethinking the president’s national anti-discipline strategy.

St. Paul, Minn., public schools are dealing with escalating classroom chaos after adopting minority-friendly discipline policies that the Obama Education Department pushed to close so-called “racial disparities” in suspensions and expulsions.

High-school kids are bringing loaded guns to class now to protect themselves from gang fights breaking out on a daily basis because teachers can no longer kick bad kids out of school.

Since the Obama regime threatened to withhold federal funding for districts that fail to reduce racial gaps in discipline, St. Paul has tried to keep students in schools rather than send them home for disciplinary issues. Suspensions are down, but infractions are exploding.

“There’s no consequences,” complained a veteran St. Paul high school teacher. “We are teaching our kids it’s OK to disrupt the learning environment, and all they’ll get is a slap on the hand.”

A district spokesman says that officials are re-examining disciplinary and security procedures after last week’s mayhem. The local teachers union is backing a slate of new board members to protest the district’s disciplinary policies.

Meanwhile, Milwaukee and Madison, Wis., public schools are standing by helplessly as violent kids assault teachers because it’s now a no-no to suspend them there too. “Teachers have been repeatedly hit, bitten and kicked by students,” the local newspaper reported.

Madison school officials put in place a touchy-feely alternative to suspensions recommended by the Obama regime, but clearly it’s not working.

“The theory does not match the reality,” a middle school teacher said.

In the entire history of the “progressive” movement, stretching back over 100 years, theory has never matched reality. Interesting that its proponents keep pushing their agenda anyway. Deliberate blindness, stupidity or worse? We report, you decide.
