Не вижу причин говорить хорошее о плохом человеке.  Кто прячется за урезаной латинской поговоркой (тем более – переобувается в полёте) – просто суеверно боится смерти, страхуется от   «а ну как обо мне тоже чего неприятного скажут?». Конкретно к славословиям такинету бывшими его противниками*: гадость. Потому что там не просто суеверие, а рука руку моет московской тусовки. Перефразируя сами-знаете-кого, Пусть и мерзкий, гаденький – да наш.

Instead of wasting so much effort I should’ve remembered the adage featuring a pig, mud and wrestling.

My memory failed me: we’ve met before. The second I saw the pseudonym “Billy Brandt” I should have recalled this particular chivalrous defender of womanhood – as well as the final insult by the blog’s owner .

My bad.

Quote from Wiki:

Occidental’s coal interests were represented for many years by attorney and former U.S. Senator Albert Arnold Gore, Sr., among others. Gore, who had a longtime close friendship with Hammer, became the head of the subsidiary Island Creek Coal Company, upon his election loss in the Senate. Much of Occidental’s coal and phosphate production was in Tennessee, the state Gore represented in the Senate, and Gore owned shares in the company. Former Vice President Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. received much criticism from environmentalists, when the shares passed to the estate after the death of Albert Gore, Sr., and Albert Gore, Jr. was a son and the executor of the estate.[41][42] Albert Gore Jr. did not exercise control over the shares, which were eventually sold when the estate closed.[43][44]

Hammer was very fond of Albert Gore, Jr., and in 1984 under Hammer’s guidance Gore, Jr. sought Tennessee’s senate office previously held by Howard Baker. Hammer supposedly promised Gore, Sr. that he could make his son the president of the United States. It was under Hammer’s encouragement and support that Gore Jr. sought the Democratic Party presidential nomination in 1988.

A wedding general

 

In 2005, Caring flew 480 people, including Elizabeth Hurley and Sting, to St Petersburg for an outrageously decadent champagne-and-caviar fancy dress party at Catherine the Great’s Winter Palace. That event, which elevated him to the A-list of London socialites, raised more than £10 million for charity, including a reported £660,000 that Caring paid to the Bill Clinton Foundation in return for the former U.S. President agreeing to attend.”

idnycNaturally, I am completely against this card as form of identification, even more so – as an ID for the questionably-legal (because, as our infamous mayor BdB insist, “immigration status does not matter”. Doesn’t it? Look at Germany, Billie!)
See, f.i., combination of what documents can get you this card in NYC:
-Your child’s U.S. Birth Certificate – listing applicant as birth parent
-Foreign Driver’s License – NOT machine readable
-U.S. School Transcript without date of birth (transcript from H.S. NOT including date of birth, dates attended, academic record etc)
-Plus one document establishing residency: like letter from Homeless shelter or High School.
Absolutely ridiculous!

What can one use this card for? Among other uses, “Benefits like SNAP, cash assistance and Section 8″. Or as government prescription medication discount card (50% off). Compare to a normal insurance-issued benefits card: tiers of “covered” medications, mandatory generics instead of proprietory brands, and premiums and copays of such magnitude that using the insurance card in a pharmacy makes absolutely no economic sense. A relative told me a diabetic med costs MORE with insurance card than if declared absence of insurance and paid pharmacy price out of pocket.
But I digress.

I’d like to offer an explanation why there are now 8mln NewYorkers who applied for the card.

…, или Рыба Гниет с Головы.

Professor, as usual, doesn’t mince words in evaluating recent muslim shooting in San-Bernardino and Obamatollah* Administraiton’s reaction on that:

…Along with trashing the Second Amendment, the administration has its sights set on the First. No doubt the 5th can be jettisoned too, if guns or politically incorrect speech are involved.
* Very apt term proposed in the comments’ section.
