    A famous optical illusion; An old woman in profile or a young woman looking away? Our minds play tricks. I invite others to share illusions. This site has 25 more optical illusions but you have to tolerate adds. I post this because an Australian team says your age predisposes which you will see first. Hillary has illusions of adequacy but let's just that old hag.
  • Remembering JOURNOLIST and progressive media’s bag of tricks

    "For those who don’t remember it, Journolist was just a listserv created by Ezra Klein. The list was invitation only and was mostly made up of progressive journalists. In theory, the list was a kind of digital water cooler where like-minded people could talk to others in the field. That may have been all it was much of the time, but when candidate Obama got in trouble in 2008, it also became a place for partisans to discuss a coordinated media strategy." When Kevin Drum (Mother Jones) argued that wasn’t the kind of campaign Obama wanted to run, Ackerman replied,...

    Full headline: "WikiLeaks Emails Allegedly Show Clinton Campaign Consultant Considering 'Swift Boat'-Style Attack on Donald Trump" “I know you can’t look past Bernie and March primaries -- but who is in charge of the Trump swift boat project? Needs to be ready, funded and unleashed when we decide -- not a half assed scramble,” one of the campaign’s consultants, Joel Johnson, purportedly wrote to Clinton’s Communications Director Jen Palmieri in February of this year. “Gee. Thanks, Joel. We thought we could half-ass it,” Palmieri purportedly replied, sarcastically
  • Hillary's Dirty Tricks make "Tricky Dick Nixon" look like an amateur.

    What we are witnessing is a theme based narrative taken right out of Tricky Dick's play book , except the MSM NOW averts their gaze. Last weekend it was that gutter child fat girl "Miss Universe" who had the credibility of a porno queen. After she was "exposed" ( and I use that in the literal sense") , we saw the actual footage of Donald being very nice with her !! the Dirty Trick failed. Trump surged in Pennsylvania and Virginia. So they reach down to the absolute bottom of the barrel and pull out a decade old illegally recorded...

    POLITICO ^ | February 29, 2016 | SHANE GOLDMACHER
    Ted Cruz likes to say “personnel is policy” but the single most important personnel decision he’s made on the 2016 presidential campaign has become his most controversial. Cruz has carefully built his brand on trustworthiness — he stands almost daily in front of signs that read “TrusTED” — but in selecting his campaign manager, Cruz tapped a take-no-prisoners operative well practiced in political dark arts. Those who have crossed Cruz’s campaign manager, Jeff Roe, say things like he’s “mean” and a “master of sleazy politics.” He’s also an indisputably talented tactician who has guided Cruz from an asterisk early in...

    Last week nasty anti-Trump robocalls started running in South Carolina. Donald Trump accused the Cruz camp of being behind the calls.Of course, Senator Cruz denied having anything to do with the ads. But it was a lie. And now there is proof that a Cruz PAC is behind the nasty anti-Trump and anti-Rubio robocalls.The Washington Post reported: Natalie Barrett, a 53-year-old schoolteacher from Westminster, got a robo-call earlier this month and ended up furious. It started off simple enough, an automated man’s voice asking her age and gender, then quizzing her on which Republican candidates she liked. But when she...

    Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson smiles at the thought of the money he’s raking in from the gullible and the attention he’s getting from Donald Trump and Joe Scaroborough (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik — caption by me.) If yesterday’s assertion by Ben Carson that he was putting a lot of effort into campaigning in South Carolina (he’s not, he is taking this weekend off and has only run 182 radio/television ads, all of them in Columbia, SC.) and that he has a plan for moving forward convinced you he was either delusional or dishonest, the balance has radically tipped to...

    Jeff Roe, Cruz's campaign manager, pulled the exact same dirty trick with another candidate a few years ago. "An e-mail sent to news media outlets and a "tweet" issued by a fake Twitter account announced that Eckersley had suspended his campaign due to personal reasons. Eckersley blames his opponent, Republican Billy Long, for sending out the hoax days before the election, "You know this is dirty politics. This is Jeff Roe style management. That's who Billy's retained. That's who he writes the big checks to," Eckersley tells Missourinet affiliate KTTS. http://www.missourinet.com/2010/10/29/eckersley-calls-e-mail-a-hoax-says-hes-still-in-the-race-audio/

    You're on the trading floor, trying to price out if a 15-year bond issued by General Electric will generate the returns needed to placate your investors. Bad news, your calculator is dead and the trader from Cantor Fitzgerald is readying to signal his buy. What to do? Well, if all you need to do is double the investment in five-years, you're in luck. That's probably not the case, and GE probably isn't issuing 15-year debt. But we compiled a list of six math tricks that might just come in handy. If you have a math trick you'd like us to...

    The number of Chinese students in American colleges has tripled in the last three years. Unfortunately, most colleges don't know what they are getting into. According to New York Times many of these students are arriving with barely passable English, despite dominating the SATs and having impeccable applications. The secret to getting into college for a Chinese person is paying the right agency. About 80 percent of Chinese applicants use such agents according to a report by Zinch Group. Aoji Education Group, for example, offers parents a package complete with money-back guarantee if you don't get into one of the...
  • Dogs Riding a Bike & Playing Choo Choo Train (cute Video)

    05/03/2011 10:04:19 AM PDT · by OneVike · 23 replies
    I have two videos of a former homeless dog that has been trained to ride a bicycle. This dog is not just riding by the way, he is actually peddling and steering it to where he is directed to go. Usually that would be enough to be worth watching, this but it gets even better. The man who found the dog already owned dogs, some of which are Pomeranians. So after he taught the new dog to ride a bike, he taught his other dogs to hold on to each other and follow the bike around. So now we have...
  • Budget tricks helped Obama save programs from cuts (spending cuts exaggerated)

    WASHINGTON – The historic $38 billion in budget cuts resulting from at-times hostile bargaining between Congress and the Obama White House were accomplished in large part by pruning money left over from previous years, using accounting sleight of hand and going after programs President Barack Obama had targeted anyway. Such moves permitted Obama to save favorite programs — Pell grants for poor college students, health research and "Race to the Top" aid for public schools, among others — from Republican knives, according to new details of the legislation released Tuesday morning. And big holes in foreign aid and Environmental Protection...

    Right on schedule, allegations that somebody committed voter fraud or other election illegalities in yesterday's Wisconsin Supreme Court balloting are being heard this afternoon in a county that voted heavily for incumbent conservative Justice David Prosser. Pundit Press, which closely followed the election balloting yesterday, offers this analysis: "As if the situation in Wisconsin wasn't tense enough, it appears that one county in particular is going to a new extreme. This comes after word that there may have been voter fraud in the nonpartisan State Supreme Court election yesterday between incumbent

A senator allegedly targeted said Thursday that he's confident there will be a review of the facts, but played down the idea that he was manipulated.
