Friday Morning Wake Up

Nothing like some bad music to get the blood boiling flowing. Semblant, a Brazilian band, proves that it has no borders. But it helps to have a hot lead singer:

Don't Bring the Garbage to the New Home

This also applies between states, as has been pointed out by the estimable Professor Reynolds. If you flee New York, Illinois or California for employment in a low tax, sun belt state, don't continue to vote for the same policies that made  you leave.

Still Fighting over Fish

East Coast fishery managers agreed Wednesday to bump up next year’s catch limit on Atlantic menhaden, a compromise that satisfied neither commercial fishing interests nor conservationists.

Meeting in Bar Harbor, Maine, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission voted to allow a 6.5 percent increase in the harvest of menhaden, a little oily fish that no one eats but is the largest catch, by weight, in the Chesapeake Bay. They’re used to make animal meal and health supplements, and as bait to catch crabs, striped bass and other fish. But they’re also considered a vital link in the marine food chain, and a staple in the diet of striped bass and other predators. For all of those reasons, their management stirs intense passion.
 Everybody like menhaden.
Fishing interests have been pushing for a substantial catch increase, arguing that recent studies showed there were plenty of fish in coastal waters and no risk of taking too many. Yet conservationists urged the commission to stay the course, saying the fisheries panel should first figure out how many menhaden are needed as food for other fish and then look at reallocating the commercial harvest to spread the catch around more.
It's hard to go wrong by keeping the catch down. It will help the fish population grow, and in the meantime, prices for the fish that are caught tend to rise, minimizing, if not altogether offsetting the economic loss.

Anecdotally, I would say that menhaden populations around us a slightly better off than a few years ago, but not to the levels that were here when I arrived in 1985. I would like to have seen the restrictions stay a while longer.

NARA told State in July to produce Pagliano’s complete e-mail records within 30 days, or to explain what happened to them. So far, State hasn’t responded to this demand, now more than 90 days old. State told ABC News that it’s been spending that time looking for Pagliano’s .pst file from that period of time (May 2009 to February 2013), but … they just can’t seem to find it:

In an act of intense projection Chelsea Clinton, speaking in Madison to an audience of "a few hundred," said children are getting bullied in school because of the "Trump effect."
And as far as that "almost daily diet of hate speech" Chelsea spoke of — where does it come from? Does it come from Trump or does it come from Trump's opponents who are paraphrasing him? I think most of the noise comes from the paraphrasers, and the question is whether they are: 1. Interpreting Trump accurately and getting us to see dog-whistling for what it really is, or 2. Distorting what Trump says into something it's not that they want you to think it is.
Michelle Malkin discusses Hillary’s climate of hate, and Scott Adams on The Bully Party,
I’ve been trying to figure out what common trait binds Clinton supporters together. As far as I can tell, the most unifying characteristic is a willingness to bully in all its forms.

If you have a Trump sign in your lawn, they will steal it.

If you have a Trump bumper sticker, they will deface your car.

if you speak of Trump at work you could get fired.

On social media, almost every message I get from a Clinton supporter is a bullying type of message. They insult. They try to shame. They label. And obviously they threaten my livelihood.

We know from Project Veritas that Clinton supporters tried to incite violence at Trump rallies. The media downplays it.

We also know Clinton’s side hired paid trolls to bully online. You don’t hear much about that.

Ex-Secret Service officer behind Clinton tell-all planning defamation suit Oh goody!
A lawyer for Gary Byrne, whose book “Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate,” has sent notices to Media Matters for America and David Brock informing them that he intends to file suit.

“Officer Byrne will bring legal action against you, in your personal capacity, and against Media Matters,” a lawyer for the former Secret Service officer wrote to Brock, a loyal Clinton ally and the founder of the liberal advocacy group Media Matters.

The letter requests Brock and Media Matters to “hold” all records and communications associated with their communications regarding Byrne — including “Any communication(s) between David Brock and The Honorable Hillary Rodham Clinton” regarding the former Secret Service officer, suggesting there might be collusion between the campaign and her defenders.

It also demands Brock “immediately and publicly retract any statement or inference by yourself and/or Media Matters to the effect that Officer Byrne was not fully truthful in recounting within ‘Crisis of Character’ details from any previous testimony.”

I Suppose a Fat Flannel Clad Dyke Would be More to Their Liking

Recently the United Nations ‘appointed’ Wonder Woman as an Honorary Ambassador for the empowerment of women and girls, which makes perfect sense if you understand Wonder Woman’s history and her storyline.

Of course feminists can’t be bothered to understand anything but their asinine agenda so they have an issue with it.
Wonder Woman was never my favorite superhero, but she has her moments.  I don't care if you make her lesbian, or bisexual but please don't put her in flannel.

The petition feminists are asking others to sign says, “A large-breasted white woman of impossible proportions, scantily clad in shimmery, thigh-baring bodysuit with an American flag motif” is not an appropriate Ambassador for gender equality.
Who says they're impossible proportions? Just look at Linda Carter!
So if Wonder Woman was ugly, had small boobs and wasn’t white would that be acceptable?
