It's the Weekend

An average of one school shooting every 60 hours. 

Students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School painted the picture of a weird and disturbed teen who sold knives out of a lunchbox, bragged about killing animals and was finally kicked out of school for fighting and carrying bullets in his backpack.  

An FBI official also said Thursday that they were warned - not once, but twice - about the shooter. One of the warnings came in September, from a bail bondsman in Mississippi who alerted the feds about an alarming online message Cruz wrote saying he was 'going to be a professional school shooter'. The FBI did not bother to even try to locate him.

Some think the response should be gun control! This guy should not have been walking around. 50 years ago, in response to abusive environments in some state hospitals, we begin releasing patients without any supervision. It's now all but impossible to have anyone involuntarily committed in most states. The responsibility for treatment for mental health is in the hands of jailers. 

Confinement is fraught with possibilities for abuse. But, we allow DA's to prosecute people with zero evidence, so what would be so different here?


We are now in the middle of a third great modern scandal. Members of the Obama administration’s Department of Justice sought court approval for the surveillance of Carter Page, allegedly for colluding with Russian interests, and extended the surveillance three times.

But none of these government officials told the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that the warrant requests were based on an unverified dossier that had originated as a hit piece funded in part by the Hillary Clinton campaign to smear Donald Trump during the current 2016 campaign.

Nor did these officials reveal that the author of the dossier, Christopher Steele, had already been dropped as a reliable source by the FBI for leaking to the press.

Nor did officials add that a Department of Justice official, Bruce Ohr, had met privately with Steele — or that Ohr’s wife, Nellie, had been hired to work on the dossier.

The new FBI director, Christopher Wray, has also reassigned the FBI’s top lawyer, James Baker, who purportedly leaked the Steele dossier to a sympathetic journalist.


Scandal, Corruption, Lawbreaking — And So What?

An article worth reading





Al-Qaeda’s chick-lit: how to please your holy warrior 

“GREET your husband with a smile when he comes and a smile when he goes.” So says a new magazine aimed at women in the Middle East. “Don’t dabble in his work,” it continues, and certainly don’t hector him. “Can you imagine all the bloodshed and bones he sees every day? Your fussing only increases the pressure.”

The magazine, launched in December, is called Beituki (“Your Home”). The publisher is al-Qaeda, which seems fed up with the way other jihadists empower their women. Al-Qaeda’s scribes tell female members to stay indoors and be good brides. “Make your house a paradise on earth,” it advises. “Prepare the food your husband loves, prepare his bed after that and do what he wants.”

Valentine Day



Many blogs will have a Valentine theme today. Passing here. 

I am wondering if we should put OBB to sleep after 10 years and 1400 posts? Even with the Blogger comment problems, there is precious little interaction. Stats show a steady readership, but a dearth of comments in 2018.

What's going on folks? I am not about to start posting nothing but pictures of butts. If that's your thing, there are a thousand Tumblr sites.

Any comments???

Spanking Goa

I tripped over a YouTube clip on spanking - a girl in the street interview in Goa India. I was surprised at how candid the women were about spanking. I was also a little surprised that it was a thing in India since most spanko's are "westerners'. 

I looked up Goa and share with you a bit about it.

Goa is a coastal state in India. It is India's smallest state by area and the fourth smallest by population. Goa has the highest GDP per capita among all Indian states, that is two and a half times that of the country. It was ranked the 'best-placed State' by the "Eleventh Finance Commission" for its infrastructure and ranked on top for the 'best quality of life' in India by the National Commission on Population. It has a tropical monsoon climate. The temps are mainly in the low 80's.

Pint-sized Goa is more than beaches and trance parties. A kaleidoscopic blend of Indian and Portuguese cultures, sweetened with sun, sea, sand, seafood and spirituality, there's nowhere in India quite like it. ... Beaches, sun and Vindaloo.


Sounds great to me.

Here's the clip.

And then I found this equally candid one from the UK. Spanking is definitely going more mainstream every day.

Tax Cut and #MeToo

Tax Cut
Someone did the numbers and found that the tax cut will reduce revenue and require more borrowing. Investors are concerned about all the additional borrowing and the likelihood of higher inflation, which is why the interest rates on U.S. government bonds hit the highest level since 2014. That, in turn, partly drove the worst sell-off in the stock market in years.

I am of the opinion that this tax cut, like its predecessors, will result in increased revenue. So I am, at this point, not concerned about the tax cut or the sell-off. I may wrong about this. 

Sexual Harassment
It seems there are a lot of male jerks.

Newton's first law states that every object will remain at rest unless compelled to change its state by the action of an external force. That has been where sexual harassment has been. Women have tolerated it. Something upset the state of rest and now we are moving ever faster to - well I don't know where we are headed.

Newton's third law is: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. There is a backlash, unintended consequences, to #MeToo.  Consider this headline:

Female professionals set back 20 years

Consider what’s happening in the capital of Florida. Female staffers and lobbyists have found “many male legislators will no longer meet with them privately,” reported The Miami Herald. “I had a senator say, ‘I need my aide here in the room because I need a chaperone,’ ” lobbyist Jennifer Green told the paper. “I said, ‘Senator, why do you need a chaperone? . . . Do you feel uncomfortable around me?’ ‘Well,’ he said, ‘anyone can say anything with the door shut.’ ”

This makes it classic Catch 22. Suffer in silence or be locked out.

This is so helpful for #MeToo

California Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia — whose high-profile advocacy of the #MeToo movement earned her national media notice — is herself the subject of a state legislative investigation in the wake of a report that she sexually harassed and groped a former legislative staffer.

The lobbyist, who represents a major industry association, said that Garcia appeared to have been drinking heavily at a fundraiser hosted by Governor Jerry Brown for state Senator Josh Newman at the de Veres bar in Sacramento. He said he was heading out the door in part to avoid the assemblywoman — who had been increasingly “flirtatious” and had called him on a few occasions before for late night drinks which he repeatedly declined.

She spotted him and said,“Where are you going?” the lobbyist said.

“She came back and was whispering real close and I could smell the booze and see she was pretty far gone,’’ he said. “She looked at me for a second and said, “I’ve set a goal for myself to fuck you.”


At that point, Garcia “stepped in front of me and reaches out and is grabbing for my crotch,’’ he said. That was “the line in the sand,” according to the lobbyist, and he stopped her. “I was four inches from her, eyeball to eyeball -- and I said, ‘That ain’t gonna happen.’”

Bond, James Bond


Bacall writes:
I was reading an article about millennials watching old James Bond movies.  There was a picture of Sean Connery, who was the best James Bond by far, and these stupid people think Sean Connery's along with Roger Moore’s character were rapists.  Just looking at Sean Connery’s picture with his shirt off makes me hot.  

Actually, I had my first spontaneous orgasm when he appeared on the screen in his tux and said his name was “Bond, James Bond”.  Wow, that really hit me and I was sitting in a theatre fully clothed!  



Do the millennials not know what rape is??  Later I read that he was a spanker.  I would gladly go over his knee for a spanking.  He is still sexy to me.  Also as the saying goes, I would trip him and beat him to the floor. [Bogey, this is why celebrities have security]

Now back to our everyday life. Saturday I decided that there just wasn’t enough spankings going on in our house. Bogey says it’s too cold.  So I went into the den and told him that I would just spank myself and use the vibrator. I started spanking, but he was watching and told me I wasn’t doing it correctly.  I said that my wrist hurt from all of the scrubbing I had been doing.  He decided that maybe it wasn’t so cold and he would help me.  What a great guy!

One Of The Damn Few

There are damn few spanking sites of interest to us anymore. Guess everyone has thrown in the towel. New Tumblr sites pop up showing the same bottoms as you will find on the other 2,214 sites.

There are even fewer F/M sites that I find appealing. This is one that has decent high-quality photographs. I would love to bend over for her.


 Both are suitably attired, no fetish wear, no tats

 Nice paddle. Pink, not blood red cheeks. I like the bent over position myself.


They are selling clips if you are interested.

My President

Brilliant Idea of the Week - Since Progressives refuse to accept and oppose anything Trump supports, let's get Trump to start professing an interest in all sorts of bad socialist ideas. Perhaps this will steer Progressives away from some of their own worst proposals.



Trump's speech was conciliatory. Yet the Dem's were instructed by the leadership to sit on their hands. Some have no social graces or a modicum of goodwill. There is no chance of negotiating with such folks. It looks like the country will continue to be run by the majority party. 

“So tonight I am extending an open hand to work with members of both parties, Democrats and Republicans, to protect our citizens, of every background, color, and creed,” Mr. Trump declared in one of several pitches for cooperation across the aisle. Pictures below show how those remarks were received.

Some of the negative highlights from the speech:


Luis Gutierrez, the illegal alien-loving congressman from Illinois triggered by chants of "USA" fled the House chamber retreated to a safe space
.




When Trump said African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded, and Hispanic American unemployment has also reached the lowest levels in history. Black Congressmen looked glum in their Kwanzaa scarfs.

ABC lost its mind slinging mud at the President for delivering a “divisive,” “gloomy,” and “sad speech” that did nothing to “unify” the country.

Contrast with BHO, President Trump used the word “I” 29 times in his speech, while using “we” 129 times. Another communal word used often by the president: “our,” which he used 104 times.



Pelosi maintained a frown the whole time.  Some say she was chewing a Tide pod.


This might be funny if it was not so serious.

I think Mr. Jindal makes some good points

A Look Ahead at the Post-Trump GOP
By Bobby Jindal

Barack Obama famously aspired to be transformative like Ronald Reagan rather than incremental like Bill Clinton. What about Donald Trump? His friends and foes alike seem to share only the conviction that he changes everything. But it’s worth considering how lasting his legacy will prove to be. What will happen to the conservative populist movement that he masterfully discerned and harnessed—but did not create—after he is done?

Contrary to conventional wisdom, the real danger with Mr. Trump is that he may end up
changing little. This is not to detract from his real accomplishments in undoing much of the Obama regulatory regime, enacting pro-growth corporate tax reform, and appointing judges who recognize they are not legislators. But Mr. Trump is clearly a one-man show, sticking his finger in the dike to hold back liberalism’s flood, while both parties seemingly learn nothing and try to wait him out.

It is easy to lose sight of the substance and be distracted by the disruptive style, the aura of celebrity, the in-your-face tweets, and the unapologetic combative demeanor. While the new judges represent permanent change, and the lower tax rates may last a while, most of the executive orders and regulatory actions can be easily reversed. Mr. Trump is a man, not a movement; he embodies executive strength, not a philosophy. When his time in office is up, he may leave behind millions of frustrated, voiceless people facing a status quo government and two limp, self-serving political parties eager to return to what they were, which wasn’t much.

Trump voters elected a president, causing them to think they had won the revolution. They hadn’t. Their power is one man, and he has an expiration date. It’s not clear that the GOP, as a party, has learned anything. The Republican elite’s desire for self-preservation, along with its recognition of the obvious populist conservative wave, has resulted in a temporary truce within the party. But the GOP will not be a populist conservative party as long as the current congressional leadership remains in place. These leaders would rather lead a shrinking GOP to contain and crush the populist uprising.

The Democratic Party is in no better shape. Consider what Mario Cuomo said about it in 1984: “And in between is the heart of our constituency—the middle class, the people not rich enough to be worry-free, but not poor enough to be on welfare. The middle class—those people who work for a living because they have to, not because some psychiatrist told them it was a convenient way to fill the interval between birth and eternity.”

Cuomo’s Democratic “heart” is today a description of the people who elected Mr. Trump. It a far cry from Bernie Sanders and his call for “Medicare for all,” or the progressive notion of a guaranteed universal income, or the obsession with identity politics over pocketbook issues. If the Republicans have become the party of big business, the Democrats have become the party of big government, and their idea of bipartisan compromise is to marry these behemoths.

The Trump movement should and can be bigger than him. Now that elite Democrats have
renounced the blue-collar working-class voters who supported them as recently as 2012,
Republicans must learn to consolidate and build on that base. The next Republican presidential nominee after Mr. Trump will have a fighting shot at bringing home the people who like lower taxes and dead terrorists but bristle at his crude behavior.

Mr. Trump has both a high floor and a low ceiling, and it is up to the Republican Party to figure out how to maintain the former while shattering the latter. One clue is to remember Bob Dole’s admonition in 1996 that anyone who believes “that we are not open to citizens of every race and religion” could find the exits, “which are clearly marked.” We used to be the party of limitless possibility. The moment immediately after Trump is the one that counts. It is possible that it took him to broaden us and that our subsequent existence will depend on his disappearance.

Where does all this leave us? We need to take over and reinvent the GOP. Mr. Trump won’t be the man to do it. We should create a more populist—Trumpian—bottom-up GOP that loves freedom and flies the biggest American flag in history, shouting that American values and institutions are better than everybody else’s and essential to the future.

Democrats are the past. They worship at the altar of identity politics, which means they believe in everything and nothing. We believe in one shared exceptional American identity, open to all who embrace it. I’ll bet millions of Americans would sign up for that, but not for anything less.


Mr. Jindal served as governor of Louisiana, 2008-16, and was a candidate for Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

In a Lighter Vein - News from the UK




A group of feminists is so angry about . . . something or other that they’re beating each other up. Literally. They call themselves Femme Feral, a “queer, femme fighting force” (whatever that means), and they want to “destroy the conservative government” and “bring down the patriarchy” by beating the living daylights out of one another. Because, apparently, the best way to protest things you disagree with is to put on really ugly underwear, paint your face to look like a three-year-old did your makeup, and throw your friends on the floor.

Femme Feral was founded by British artist and Ph.D. researcher Phoebe Patey-Ferguson as a way to channel her rage over Britain voting to leave the European Union

To partisans, Hillary Clinton and Mr. Trump are a lying, cheating murderer and a crazy, impulsive, lying, racist, homophobic, sexist narcissist. That’s a big gap. Can it be bridged?
