Golden Oldie: Liberals Who Vote, Like Trump. Liberals Who Don't Vote, Like "Cops"

Remember that old saying "You are what you eat"? Maybe today it's also true that you are what you watch? National Media Inc. did a demographic study of who watches what on TV, based on their party affiliation and tendency to vote.

Surprise, surprise when I saw a number of my favorites in the upper right hand, Republican who vote quadrant! Celebrity Apprentice, on the other hand, with The Donald, was the show deemed most popular among the most liberal in the audience. Never seen it myself! "Wive Swap", which, in the spirit of full disclosure I have also not seen, was popular with the most liberal in the audience that tends not to vote.

Curious, I thought, was the presence of "Cops" in the more liberal less vote crowd. Isn't this show on (whispers) Fox*? Maybe among liberals who sit home on election day, there is also a fascination with seeing themselves,their friends and their neighbors on TV??

You love me, you really, really love me...

Actually, there's not a grain of truth in that statement, but I thought it would be worthwhile to plant a little notion in your noggins.

Allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Adrienne, and I hang out in a little corner of the interwebs.  Most days I sit in the aforementioned corner, sucking my thumb, and twirling my hair. 

However, when a friend comes seeking help, I am powerless to refuse. 

In just days, our fearless leader, Curmudgeon, will be going off on one of her little jaunts leaving Grunt and Proof in charge of the blog.  Regular readers will remember when they had to call in Peruvian maids (legal),  carpet cleaners, and sanitizing crews to fix up the ol' homestead before Curmudgeon's anticipated arrival home.  One year they actually had to replace the carpet because of cigar burns. These guys just cannot not be trusted with the keys to the liquor cabinet.

Sooooooooooo, much to their chagrin, I, me, moi will be in charge of the keys.  The screaming and gnashing of teeth you hear is Grunt and Proof displaying childish histrionics in hopes that Curmudgeon will change her mind.

Not happening, boys.

I've also engaged John Kasich to be in charge of our mail, Trump will handle entertainment, Cruz will order our wash-off tattoos, Bernie, well, Bernie will be hitting the dumpsters for food, and Hillary will be in charge of emails.  

It's going to be a great week.  Yuuuuuge!!

This Will Not End Well

Last night CNN hosted a Republican Presidential Town Hall in which we saw all three GOP contenders go back on their pledge to support the eventual nominee of the party. 

John Kasich said of the pledge, “All of us shouldn’t have answered that question.”

Ted Cruz told host Anderson Cooper, “I’m not in the habit of supporting someone who attacks my wife and my family.  I think nominating Donald Trump would be an absolute train wreck.  I think it would hand the general election to Hillary Clinton.”

Cooper posed the pledge question to Trump who said, “No, I don’t anymore.  I’ve been treated very unfairly” by the Republican National Committee and party establishment figures.  He added, Cruz “doesn’t need to support me.  I have tremendous support right now from the people.  I don’t really want him to do something he’s not comfortable with.”
I worry the festering animus by the candidates on “our” side of the aisle is contaminating the discourse among ordinarily sensible people.  The fans, speaking metaphorically, are beginning to fight each other in the stands.  If you’re a Trump supporter Cruz people call you stupid.  And vice versa if you’re a Cruz supporter.  This is a frightening scenario that will not end well.

I’ve have heard some say they will vote for Hillary if Trump is the nominee.  Don’t mistake what I am saying.  Please.

I have said all along that I believe voters must have their say at the ballot box.  Whoever emerges the winner in each state’s primary should receive the delegates that well-established rules dictate they should be awarded. 

The convention in Cleveland should not devolve into a melee in which everyone has their long knives out.  We’ve come too far to surrender to the Marxists and socialists and poodle press who coronated their “messiah” and lied to the American people about Benghazi and the countless classified emails that placed our national security in grave peril and sought to fundamentally transform America. 

Are we willing to surrender without a fight to a fossil socialist or a corrupt and bloodless woman who lied to the four families who lost loved ones in a far-off hell hole in Libya who could be destined for a stretch in a federal penitentiary?

If we can’t get our shit together, the transformation we most fear will be complete in November.  I don’t want that.  Do you?

Obama Declares Alaska's Pavlof Volcano Number One Global Threat

Declares Global Virgin Shortage Number Two Threat

Gruntington Post [Anchorage, AK] - Under pressure from climate scientists to use the might and power of the White House to act against the erupting Pavlof volcano in Alaska, which is sending millions of tons of ash and greenhouse gases into the upper atmosphere, President Obama made a few calls and took out his pen and declared the eruption the current "Number One Global Threat." He further gave a sternly worded speech at the Griffith Observatory near where he was playing golf in Pasadena, CA, about how the climate catastrophe caused by this one event would threaten "all of mankind," but most especially "people of color, women, gays, muslims and Cubans." Climate scientists squealed in delight.

Later, at a White House press briefing, where he arrived in Air Force One after taking a brief detour to Rio de Janeiro "for a Coke," President Obama was asked repeatedly if he had taken any concrete action against the volcano and its deadly climate effects.

"Well, you know, I've got a lot on my plate. And my staff has taken action to locate a few virgins to help placate the volcano gods. But there are complications in Alaska. Where I'm from, in Hawaii, you dealt with Pele, god of fire. But this volcano is in the Aleutians. So, do you shoot for the Russian ethnic fire gods? Or the Inuits? And have you ever tried to find an actual virgin in Washington DC? It ain't easy. I might have to use Kerry."

Flowing Curves Of Beauty

Bernie Stole Hillary’s Only Means Of Transportation And Used It To Sweep Her In “Western Caucuses”

Bernie Sanders, the witless oaf peddling socialism, was victorious in Washington state's caucuses 72.7 percent to Clinton's 27.1 percent and won Alaska's caucuses by a landslide, defeating Clinton 81.6 percent to 18.4 percent. At 4 a.m. Sunday, with 87.8 percent of precincts reporting, Sanders was declared the winner in Hawaii, leading Clinton 70.6 percent to 29.2 percent.  That followed his runaway wins in Idaho and Utah.

The delegate math still favors The Ice Cube In Heels.  Clinton has amassed 1712 delegates to Sanders’ 1004.  The nomination will belong to the candidate who garners 2383 before the Democrat convention.  There are 2049 delegates still up for grabs.

And if you needed further evidence that Democrats are divorced from reality, savor this nugget from Bill Scher of Politico as he opines about the Lizard People’s idol:
This is not a joke. Senator Al Franken should be the Democratic Party’s choice for Vice-President. “If I had said that 10 years ago, or even six months ago, the notion would have been preposterous:  a former Saturday Night Live writer, perhaps best known as the mock self help guru Stuart Smalley, Franken became synonymous with left-wing bombast thanks to his best-selling book “Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot.” He took the presidency itself as a joke, writing a satirical campaign memoir, “Why Not Me,” in which Franken wins the White House on a platform of eliminating ATM fees, only to be quickly chased out by the “Joint Congressional Committee on the President's Mood Swings.”
With Hillary Clinton’s grip on the Democratic nomination firm, and Donald Trump on track to insult his way to the Republican nomination, Democrats will want their vice-presidential choice to accomplish the following:
   1.   Prevent Bernie Sanders’ energized left-wing youth from snubbing Clinton and flocking to the Green Party, 
     2.     Protect the Rust Belt from Donald Trump’s blustery charms; and 
   3.   Navigate an unprecedented media circus dominated by Trump’s barrage of taunts

Scher prattles endlessly on about the virtues of this idiot and then concludes with this gem, “The reason for Clinton to pick Franken is this:  it would make the entire fall campaign bearable to watch.”

May You Know The Blessings Of Easter

I am wholly deserving of all the consequences I will never receive simply because God unashamedly stepped in front of me on the cross, unflinchingly spread His arms so as to completely shield me from the retribution that was mine to bear, and repeatedly took the blows.

And I stand entirely unwounded, utterly lost in the fact that while His body was pummeled and bloodied to death by that which was meant for me and me alone, I have not a scratch.

Best wishes to our readers for a joyous and peaceful Easter.

The Next Time I Get A Paper Cut Maybe I Won’t Whine So Much

I don't like futbol.  I like football.  This poor guy.

Lascivious Gutter Politics

The National Enquirer has gotten its hands on some smut that someone somewhere hopes will destroy the presidential candidacy of Ted Cruz.  Let’s not pretend you haven’t read about it or heard it discussed on the boob tube.

Cruz is blaming Trump for the salacious story.  Trump denies it.  Some are tying the revelation to surrogates of Marco Rubio’s failed campaign.  Fingers are pointing literally everywhere.

The man at the center of this tabloid trash has characterized himself as an evangelical, a family man, courageous, conservative, consistent.  The allegation of extramarital affairs is calculated to destroy his credibility.

The headline on the front cover of the National Enquirer might as well have read, “Ted Cruz is Periodically Stricken by Pon Farr and Must Return to Vulcan to Take a Mate or Die.

Nothing has thus far been proven.  Nothing has been corroborated.  Nothing credible presented by credible journalists has emerged.

The dark art of opposition research is a perfected art form with the Clintons.  Their machine peddles hit jobs like no other.  Is it possible that Bill and Hillary’s oppo machine is behind all this?

Don’t laugh. In 2011, the founders of American Bridge, the first super PAC devoted exclusively to researching damaging information on GOP candidates, leveraged big donations from labor unions and donors such as George Soros to fund an army of campaign trackers and data miners.  

American Bridge has been credited with the destruction of Mitt Romney and Todd Akin. Its leaders have formed another super PAC called Correct the Record whose sole mission is to push the boundaries of campaign finance law by directly coordinating its research efforts with Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Easter Hope

On the first Good Friday, the government executed Jesus because it was convinced that by claiming to be the Son of God, He might foment a revolution against it. He did foment a revolution, but it was in the hearts of men and women. The Roman government had not heard of a revolution of the heart, so it condemned Him to death by crucifixion.
What does Easter mean? Easter means that there’s hope for the dead. If there’s hope for the dead, there’s hope for the living. But like the colonists who fought the oppression of the king, we the living can only achieve our hopes if we have freedom. And that requires a government that protects freedom, not one that assaults it.

I Know You Are But What Am I?

As the world reels from the devastating bomb blasts in Brussels where two Americans, Sascha and Alexander Pinczowski were killed and Justin Stutts and wife Stephanie, both of Kentucky are listing as missing, America is witness to a insane clown show.

Donald Trump and Ted Cruz have descended into a festering war of words over their spouses.

The line in the political discourse was crossed after the anti-Trump Super PAC Make America Awesome, ran Facebook ads in Utah ahead of that state’s primary.  The ad featured a photograph of a nearly-nude Melania Trump from a years old photo shoot for GQ magazine.
Cruz responded:
The two continued their Twitter war: 
One of the most notable moments in American politics came in 1988 when CNN’s Bernard Shaw asked Democratic presidential hopeful Mike Dukakis  whether he would support the death penalty if his wife was raped and murdered. When Dukakis didn’t show any anger or signal he would defend her, choosing instead to answer the question from a policy perspective, his run for the presidency ceased to exist.  The perception was if he wasn’t willing to protect his wife could Americans expect him to protect the country.

“Donald, you’re a sniveling coward,” Cruz told reporters Thursday in Dane, WI, forcefully pointing his finger, “Leave Heidi the hell alone.  It’s not easy to tick me off.  I don’t get angry often, but you mess with my wife, you mess with my kids, that’ll do it every time.”

“He ran away from the last debate that was scheduled because he was scared of Megyn Kelly and because he was scared to defend his policies,” Cruz said, referring to a debate Fox News was forced to cancel when he and Kasich pulled out.

“I’m not looking forward to telling the girls why Donald Trump is launching insults and attacks at their mommy,” he said. “I’m not looking forward to that conversation, because it is not acceptable.  Real men don’t try to bully women,” Cruz added.

A furious Cruz said the attacks by Trump were the actions “of a small and petty man who is intimidated by strong women.”

“Real men don’t do that, and Donald is indicating the fear that keeps him up at night when he lashes out with anger,” Cruz said, before hailing his wife as his best friend and love of his life. “Donald should stick with attacking me, because Heidi is way out of Donald Trump’s league.”

This chest-pounding does not make these man-children look strong.  It’s having the opposite effect.  The pissing in the wind from both of them is more pathetic than powerful.

This isn’t g-d 1988.  The machismo these two men are engaged in is embarrassing.  For God’s sake, the world is watching as our president attends a baseball game in a communist country and dance the tango in a country where thousands disappeared under a ruthless dictator.

America has far more grave things to worry about.  These two brats need to grow the hell up; otherwise, everyone loses except the godforsaken Democrats.  It reminds me of Pee Wee Herman endlessly arguing with the neighborhood bully, “I know you are, but what am I?”

Sweet 16: Duke Vs Oregon

Nothing delights me more than to watch the apoplexy of “sports experts” who pour over stat sheets, rosters, schedules, standings and won-loss records trying to analyze which men’s college basketball teams are the best in the nation.

Season after season they are flummoxed when they discover that the ACC is the best in the country.  This year has proven to be no different except this year the conference set a record by advancing six teams to the Sweet 16.

Tonight my beloved Duke Blue Devils will meet on the hardwood against the Oregon Ducks at the Honda Center in Anaheim.  After traveling cross-country to get to the Honda Center, Duke will face one of their toughest opponents yet in 6-foot-10 Dillon Brooks a shot-blocking monster and damned good 3-point shooter.

After winning their 5th national championship last March, Duke had massive turnover when several players went pro at the end of the tourney.  It stood to reason that the Devils would be in a rebuilding mode.

Duke’s depth on the court suffered a huge blow when Amile Jefferson broke his foot in December during practice forcing him out for the remainder of the season, but you shouldn’t count them out because they still have the last of the Plumlee brothers, Marshall, and he ain’t no slouch.  Let’s also not forget about Brandon Ingram who has the skinniest “get-away sticks” in college BBall.  Take Brandon and Grayson Allen and you’ve got one helluva spread-the-floor offense and a pretty decent man and zone defense.

Allen is a beast on the floor.  His FT average is 84% and he averages 22 points per game.  He’s dominating from beyond the arc for tres.

The Ducks are hoping that the Blue Devils’ 0-4 all-time record for tournament games played in the Pacific Time Zone will be a factor tonight.  Come on, man.  You don’t think Coach K is going to let that be a factor again do you?

The Ducks are the last PAC-12 team standing in tourney play.  The pressure on them is going to be intense.


This “James Gang” Will Melt Your Heart

Don’t Worry World Obama’s Taking The Scourge Of ISIS Seriously

On Wednesday evening, The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer danced the tango at a state dinner in Argentina.

A bipartisan condemnation of the optics erupted immediately.  The consensus was baseball games and tangos are inconsistent with the seriousness of the day in which 31 people were killed and 270 were injured in bomb blasts that rocked Brussels.

There were mothers lying dead while their family members were grieving at the crime scene and this devastating attack barely got a minute of Obama’s attention while visiting the tyrannical communist country of Cuba.

US State Department Deputy spokesman Mark Toner said in a statement, "At this time, we are not aware of any US citizen deaths.  We must emphasize that a number of US citizens remain unaccounted for and the Kingdom of Belgium has not yet released nationality information for reported fatalities."

While thronesniffers like MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and Mika Brzezinski urged the dancing fool to return home human rights protesters in the host country of Argentina are sick of him demanding that he leave their country as they burned American flags.

The protesters accuse America of backing dictatorial regimes during the Cold War in South America, including in Argentina, and hold the US responsible for the thousands who died or disappeared under their rule in what became known as “The Dirty War.

Phoning It In

As Brussels burns, a third-world dictator, deep in his portable Presidential bunker, somewhere in Argentina, pretends he still matters.

“Well Ya See, Norm, It’s Like This…”

He didn’t even campaign in Arizona.  According to polling results (92.4% reporting) he garnered a paltry 62,444 votes. Rubio had a better showing and he dropped out of the race the week before.

The mailman’s son topped Donald Trump in Utah.  With 85.4% reporting, Kasich grabbed 29,015 votes compared to Trump’s 23,984 votes.  Cruz blistered them both with a commanding 69.2% of the votes.

Kasich’s decision to stay in a race in which he has so far failed to make a mark outside his home state of Ohio led National Review editor Rich Lowry to say, “Kasich is playing a selfish and delusional role.” 
In Ohio, Kasich campaigned with Mitt Romney, who urged voters to cast their ballots for the governor as part of a Stop Trump strategy.  A week later, he abandoned Kasich in Utah’s contest making robocalls on behalf of Cruz declaring that a vote for Kasich was a vote for Trump.

Of course Romney’s disgraceful tactic is a moot point at this juncture since Kasich has already been mathematically eliminated.

Kasich has turned his attention to Wisconsin which will award 42 delegates using a hybrid system that is neither winner-take-all nor proportional. 
“Ya know Normie, I’ll talk it up down at the old Post Office. Before you know it this place will be wall to wall with letter carriers. You think I’m entertaining…multiply me by 100.”

Nope. No thanks.  Let's just return to sender.

Obama Calls for World to Unite Against War on Terror

 Obama setting the example.

Wormy Beards Strike Belgium’s Zaventem Airport and Maelbeek Metro

The war scenes in Brussels are heartbreaking.  World leaders have abdicated their duty to protect their citizens from twisted, sniveling radical Islamist terrorists.  They cower in the name of multi-culturalism and diversity.

Today’s attack came a week after French and Belgian security forces arrested the last surviving member of the ISIS cell responsible for the Paris massacre.

Counterterrorism officials have been on high alert for years.  The European immigration fiasco is to blame for security personnel being overwhelmed with hundreds of threats and freely admits it is the primary reason Salah Abdeslam went undetected for more than four months as he hid in plain sight from authorities seeking to bring him to justice.

“We just don’t have the people to watch anything else and, frankly, we don’t have the infrastructure to properly investigate or monitor hundreds of individuals suspected of terror links, as well as pursue the hundreds of open files and investigations we have,” the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media, said.

“It’s literally an impossible situation and, honestly, it’s very grave.”

French President François Hollande said, “We are at war.”  The mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, is helping to keep the barbarians from the gates by ordering the Eiffel Tower be lit in the colors of Belgium on Tuesday night.  That gesture will surely aid in the destruction of radical Islam.

“It was a horror. I saw at least seven people dead. There was blood. People had lost legs. You could see their bodies but no legs.”

Others described seeing “dismembered bodies everywhere” and the ceiling collapsing after two blasts rocked the Brussels airport.

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair warned that “flabby liberalism” is helping terrorists because Britain’s elite feel too “guilty” to tackle the spread of extremism.  He went on to say “we concede too much” as many in politics are “unwilling to take people on” fearing they will be seen as intolerant of other cultures.  “One of the problems with the West is it constantly can be made to feel guilty about itself,” he said.

Blair, of course, is alluding to the lectures our betters on the Left pummel us with as they insist anyone criticizing the radical element of Islam is Islamophobic.  We stopped calling it the War on Terror the moment The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer took office. 

In one photograph, the horror is so palpable that two people are seen embracing each other after realizing they had survived the bomb blasts unscathed as a man lies on the ground just feet from them badly wounded.

These people are emblematic of the fear the world is caught up in.  It must stop.

UPDATE:  Richard Grenell, former US spokesman at the United Nations, just said on Fox News that the terror attacks in Brussels were not revenge attacks as was first suspected, but rather the result of Belgian and French authorities' inability to find Abdeslam quickly enough to stop the attacks.

“This was a high that could never be duplicated. It was a high more dangerous to a man's soul than any found in a drug. Because this high chanced an addiction to not just the pleasure, but to the woman. And he was beginning to fear he had found the woman and the pleasure that could become an addiction impossible to live without.”

Communism Seemed Like A Good Idea To Fidel Castro Right Up Until He Was Rushed To The Hospital In A ’55 Oldsmobile

Let me say up front that I can’t wait until this guy’s term is finally over.  For the next three days our televisions and newspapers are going to be flooded with “Oh look, Obama did this and Obama did that” as he takes along with him on his “historic visit” to Cuba 20 members of Congress, four Cabinet members, prominent Cuban-Americans, a vast array of security personnel, business leaders sniffing for business tidbits, the Tampa Bay Rays baseball team, the entire Obama family and a gaggle of press.  It will be an impressively annoying circus.
Reuters News Service did a little advance work to inform its readers the mansion where the First Family will spend its nights has survived war and revolution and was “built to impress” using the finest materials and craftsmanship of the time.  According to lore, it was built as a winter White House for Obama’s idol FDR.  The highest ranking official to previously stay there was VP Richard Nixon.
Plainclothes police have blanketed Havana with security while public works crews have busily laid down asphalt in a city where drivers joke they must navigate "potholes with streets" and welcome signs emblazoned with images of Castro and the president have popped up everywhere. 
On their first evening in the communist utopia, the First Family will be carted around Old Havana for some carefully coordinated sight-seeing.  Monday the president will lay a wreath at the memorial dedicated to Jose Marti, the so-called “Apostle of the Cuban Revolution”, meet with Fidel’s brother Raul, participate in an “entrepreneurship summit” and conclude his day with a State Dinner at the Palace of the Revolution.
The following day, Ol’ Jug Ears will address the Cuban people, meet with dissidents and “civil society leaders” and enjoy a baseball game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cuban National Team.

NOTE:  The Los Angeles Times reports “authorities there are ordering dissidents invited to meet with the American leader to stay home instead.”  Elizardo Sanchez, a Cuban anti-government activist, said he and most of those invited planned to defy the government order noting that US officials were offering to help the activists get to the meeting with Obama.

Later in the afternoon, the errand boy sent by grocery clerks will depart for Buenos Aires, Argentina.

It is important to point out the son of Ernesto “Che” Guevara, Camilo, views Obama’s arrival in the Cold War capital of Cuba as a threat to his father’s legacy as Fidel Castro’s chief executioner and commander of Latin American death squads.

The propaganda machines will furiously spin to dispel the notion that Cuba’s national anthem isn’t “Row, row, row your boat.”

Our liberal friends are notoriously naive.

You Say Your Brackets Are Busted Bunky?

Next to college football, the NCAA Tournament is my favorite time of the year.  Last year I rooted for my beloved Duke Blue Devils all the way to their fifth National Championship.  It was glorious.

Today’s slate of games features Duke vs Yale.  This will be the second meeting between these two teams.  The last meeting was in November when Duke was a much better defensive squad.

Duke’s title chances have hit the skids due to a right foot fracture Amile Jefferson suffered during practice in mid-December.  He cannot run fluidly and will miss the tournament altogether.  The senior forward was a vital front court piece for the Blue Devils.

The Blue Devils are vulnerable on the offensive glass but aggressive as hell when pressing up on the perimeter.

Yale is riding high after their shocker whipping of Baylor that busted everyone’s brackets, but they do not have a reputation of hurrying their offense.  That is a weakness that Duke will surely exploit.

Coupled with the experience Yale already has from facing Duke this season, the Ivy League champion is ready to prove the NCAA tournament wait was worth more than half a century.  We shall see.


If you need me, I’ll be at my local gin mill/sports bar with my crowd rooting like crazy for Duke and later this evening I’ll devote my attention to pulling for Carolina to trounce Providence.

And The Nation Heaved A Collective Sigh Of Relief

Washington (CNN)First Lady Michelle Obama is due to leave the White House when The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer’s reign of errors ends on January 20, 2017 and she said she has no intention of going back.
The wookiee’s announcement came while attending the South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival in Austin, Texas.  She made it clear she has no designs on the presidency saying, “I will not run for president.  No.  Nope.  Not going to do it.”
And the nation heaved a collective sigh of relief.
The current White House occupants have racked up 38—count ‘em—38 holidays, working vacations and “fun” trips according to a March 2015 published report by The Washington Examiner and are on par to take a total of 45 holidays before leaving office.
It is impossible to track the actual number of trips Moochelle, her daughters and her mother, Marian Robinson, have taken since the White House keeps that information secret from the media.  Yes, that’s right.  That’s been kept a secret.
It’s infuriating to think that the First Lady had the temerity to say that life in the White House had “some prison elements to it, but it’s a really nice prison.”  Bless her heart.
Last year alone there were trips to Hawaii, Aspen, Palm Springs, Los Angeles, Palm City, the United Kingdom, Italy, New York City and Martha’s Vineyard. In other years there were trips to Spain, Africa, China, and South America just to name a few destinations.
Judicial Watch compiled a list of First Family vacations and the sheer waste of taxpayer dollars through a series of Freedom of Information Act requests and lawsuits.  So far, Judicial Watch is reporting the total known expense to the American taxpayers for all Obama travel is now $70,880,035.71.
Do I see you doing a slow burn?  Yes, I think I do.
