Overnight Open Thread

So what's your plan to bug out? Where are you gonna go when economic collapse (known as Obamanomics) comes? EMP? Carrington Effect level solar flare (BTW there is a 1 In 8 Chance Of Catastrophic Solar Megastorm By 2020)? SMOD? Well, Business Insider had some ideas. I'm thinking some of the choices were tongue in cheek. 12 Places To Go If The World Goes To Hell. Seriously, who in there right mind would pick Denver? Or any other major city for that matter? I'd be heading for the hills.
I think this list over at io9 is a bit better although good luck trying to get into Cheyenne Mountain! 10 Places To Ride Out The Apocalypse.

Surprising Song Meanings

I kinda knew about some of these but some of them I had no idea. 13 Songs That Don't Mean What You Think They Do. I guess I didn't pay much attention to some lyrics as a youngin'.

Tutti Frutti by Little Richard. You probably heard this song a lot as a kid, just like you probably watched Mrs. Doubtfire as a kid and didn't think much of it. Well, re-watch Mrs. Doubtfire now that you've gone through middle school and give this record a spin and listen to the lyrics.

If you did that, then you'll realize that the song is all kinds of rough. Not only is it about some guy getting it on with a girl, but multiple girls--Sue and Daisy--and they both "know what to do" (so they're very experienced) and they all drive him crazy.

Also, the repeated hook of "Tutti frutti, aw rooty" was not the original lyrics of the song, before it got picked up to be recorded.

When performing live, Little Richard sang the following:

Tutti Frutti, good booty / If it don’t fit, don’t force it / You can grease it, make it easy.

The lyrics were then changed in studio to "Tutti Frutti, all rooty" (all rooty was slang at the time for "alright") so that the rest of the song didn't make sense, making it more marketable. Yes, that's right. The song you more than likely danced to like an idiot when you were three and didn't know better was originally not just about sex, but anal sex. You're welcome.

Hot Vodka

I do love me some vodka but I don't know about this. 100,000 Scoville Naga Chilli Vodka. 100,000 Scovilles hot?!?! Hot damn that's pretty hot. The video at the link of the reporters taking a shot is pretty funny. Here's a description of how it tastes.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Good crivvens, this stuff smells like pure evil, like the very blood of Satan himself. Such a pungent nose of chilli, it makes your eyes water just sniffing it.

Palate: Oh, actually, this stuff’s not so bad… Wait a second… What’s that… A burning sensation… Oh dear please no...

Comment: SJjkhahjklaskjhsd aasdfsd asdfasdff [Ed. He’s just mashing his hands against the keyboard and he has a look of panic and also terror as though he’s seen things no one ought ever see…]


Here's a reference table of scoville ratings. Taco Bell Fire sauce is only 500 scovilles.

Ultimate Tazer Ball

Oh hell yeah. I'd play if I could get the other team to put Frum and Yglesias on it. I wouldn't even wait for them to get the ball. I'd just taze them. Anyway, I really don't think this will really catch on as the promoters think. Ultimate Tazer Ball Allows Players To Zap Opposing Players With Stun Guns.

Ultimate Tazer Ball allows players to zap opponents with 300,000-volt stun guns, to induce a muscle spasm which will make them drop the ball or trip over.

Only the player in possession may be zapped as teams of four compete to manoeuvre an over-sized foam ball into their opponents’ net.

There are four fledgling teams – LA Nightlight, Philadelphia Killawatts, Canadian side Toronto Terror and San Diego Spartans.

Toronto Terror look set to encounter problems at home games, as stun guns are banned in Canada.


Actually, I think they have been playing this game for years and it's on network TV on shows like Adventures of the Highway Patrol, COPS, etc.

Condom Tracking

Why? Planned Parenthood Releases Condoms With Geolocation. Can't wait for that moment when parents go to the map and see that little Timmy or good little Sarah has been gettin' busy at the house when the parents were away.

JDAM Pron

You know what's better than 1 JDAM? 6 JDAMs. Oh yeah. I'm pretty sure a bunch of Korans were harmed during the explosions.

Another D'uh! Study

Women who get frequent headaches or migraines are more likely than others to have sexual problems, a new study from Italy says. No shit? Really? You had to do a study to figure this one out? Psst. You know what might prevent headaches? Sex. Or fapping. Or a glass of water.

28 I wrote this quick and dirty review of Act of Valor for some friends. In short, I liked it.

-----------

Hey, not bad. Unfairly maligned. Critics are all a bunch of lefty douchebags. Fuck 'em.

To
be fair, it's not great art. It's certainly not propaganda.
Recruitment movie? Certainly no more than Top Gun was except Act of
Valor lacks the homosexual subtext. Quality of the acting is probably
about the same.


There's not actually a lot to say about this movie. It stars a
bunch of real life SEALS. Shit blows up. Cut. Print. That's a wrap.
Honestly if it weren't for the ridiculous reactions of the critics (the
most hysterically outraged review came from a reviewer on AICN called
Nordling) I probably would never have seen this movie. 'Splosions?
Gimmickry? Bad acting? Avoid. Lefties get all hysterical and malign
as propaganda an apolitical movie? Officially intrigued. So I figure,
okay, I'll piss away a few bucks. And I can honestly say I've seen far
worse movies. The acting is wooden, yes, but I've seen so-called
professional actors do worse. The story is stock, but what do you want
another friggin' remake? Shakey cam? Hey, it's not so shakey I can't
follow the action unlike those last two Bourne movies.


It has problems, certainly. Unless something is blowing up, I
wasn't really caring. Because the movie is basically a series of
loosely connected scenarios there's a lack of tension. But I knew this,
or at least figured, going in.


The strengths of the film lies in, believe it or not, the cast. Bad
acting, yes, but all these guys on screen are for real and this movie
is a showcase. So you get a chance to glimpse not just how they do
things, from mission briefs on, but you sort of get a glimpse into their
mindset a little. It's like reading an autobiography in a way. You're
not getting straight facts of events in a person's life, you're getting
an ego's impression of itself. In a way, that's what Act of Valor is.
Whenever the main characters aren't briefing on a mission or killing
some terrorists, they're basically talking about their families and
there's a character who's an expectant father and so on. If there's any
sort of statement this movie makes it 1. This is the purest definition
of service and 2. This are who we're serving. Family guys with big fucking
guns. "We kill scumbags so our kids can be happy." And this makes me
think of something Robert Kaplan observed that no matter how cornball
some of this stuff may seem they really, *really* believe in it. It's
completely black and white and an objective observer might make more
complex observations but that's besides the point. The SEALS, as an
institution, see themselves this particular way. And I can't argue with
it. At least that was my take away.


I'd say this movie is 2.5 out of 5 stars. It's not great but it's pretty cool in its
way.

35 Reposting here on ONT - an update to the New No Che at work policy from the previous thread:


Lol.. well, glad it inspired - and as it turns out I have an update.
I work what's called a "floating schedule" meaning that sometimes my
schedule can change from week to week depending on business needs. So I
make it a habit to sign into my work email on Friday and again on
Sunday, just to check to make certain they haven't made a last minute
change to my schedule for Monday.

I signed into my work email a
few minutes ago, and found an email in my inbox about the incident. The
other guy's supervisor sent it to the entire group, and I won't quote
the whole thing but basically he posted a "reminder" to everyone working
the evening shift that they could no longer wear "Che" T-shirts and
that they would have to be a lot more careful in the future because
apparently there was one person who might become offended and report
them to HR if they were not. He said he could not comment on who it was
that was offended, but apologized to everyone that there wardrobe
choices were now more limited as a result. I guess either he forgot that
the group in question went out to all of us, or perhaps he was hoping
I'd be too ashamed to do anything about it.

Being part of the
group, I responded to the entire group - I introduced myself, and stated
that I was indeed the one that had pointed out the T-shirt was
offensive. I told them that while the supervisor in question hadn't
released my name in the email, that I'd be more than happy to do so
myself. I also pointed out that I was not the one that got HR involved,
that this was erroneous information. I told them that if anyone had any
questions as to exactly how it all transpired, or as to why I might be
offended by a Che T-shirt, I'd be more than happy to discuss it with
them at length. Since such a thing really wasn't business related, I
offered them one of my home email addresses instead.

Yup.. better get that resume ready.. having a feeling I'll be going down to HR pretty much as soon as I show up Monday morning.

71 Let's approach this logically. Where do you go if civilization goes all to hell?

Well, not a major city. That's a given. Nor anyplace within easy looting range of a major city, which rules out a lot of the Northeastern U.S. -- Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, the Hudson Valley of New York, New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, and the northern half of Virginia.

Nor do you want to be anyplace where you need energy to stay alive. Sure, people lived in the Snow Belt before electricity, but they had to cut a hell of a lot of trees and they lived in houses built around fireplaces. So just eliminate everything north of the Ohio River and the Oklahoma-Kansas border extending west to California.

You also want to be someplace with water. That eliminates Arizona and New Mexico.

What does that leave? Rural areas in California and Oregon, and rural parts of the Old South.

I'd say the Appalachians are a good bet. Some small hydro plants, coal mines, and plenty of mountain folk who are a couple of generations (if that) away from subsistence farming anyhow.

Albeit a generalization, I see the average Moronette as:

1. a brilliant, discerning woman, shrewd in judgement and not reticent in sharing her opinions.
2. beautiful, doe-like eyes full of love, but which can cut off a man in mid-sentence with her glare.
3. A mouth with a beguiling smile, but also one with a vocabulary that could burn the paint off an engine block when those she loves are threatened.
4. Great breasts. Size not a factor, but she knows what they mean to her man, and how to use them as a woman..

What am I missing?

79 The writer of the piece does not get the half of it about "White Wedding," even by pop culture standards.

Billy Idol actually wrote that mockingly for his own sister for her own wedding, satirizing the conventional idea of marriage. As it turned out, his own hipster shack-upping with his live-in lover dissolved, and his sister's marriage endured. Hmmmmm. . . .

123 We conservatives have every right to use the same rules that the lefties beat us over the head with, they are just better and savvier at using the rules.

For instance, if you are subscribed to some email list *that is required for your job*, and some leftie douchebag coworker sends out tasteless jokes about conservatives, that is called "hostile work environment". But it seems like it's only when some asshole conservative sends out a tasteless liberal-bashing joke that the hostile work environment card gets played. Well, that card can be played by anyone.

134 "Dude, not sure if a Che shirt is worth losing a job over, i didn't see the first part though so maybe i'm missing something."

To be honest, a few days ago I would have agreed with you. I certainly never even thought to say anything before. I had always left my politics at home, and had never said anything at work even though there is a small but rather vocal group there that doesn't extend the same courtesy to the rest of us.

Normally though I just ignored it and said nothing. But something changed when I found out that Andrew Brietbart had died. I just couldn't stay silent anymore.

You can read the original posting that explains how it all started in the previous thread about a Moron Meetup for Breitbart.

So yes, I may well lose my job over this - I'm sure if I do it won't be directly but rather indirectly, and that might all seem a bit silly over a T-Shirt. But I guess I realized today that it wasn't a T-Shirt, it was a principle.

And if I am a conservative, and I don't stand on principle.. well, then do I really deserve the right to call myself a conservative anymore?

So yes, it's a very real possibility I'll be out of a job and looking for work again soon. As to the legal aspects of it, I guess I'll have to cross that bridge when I come to it. But I just can't sit silent anymore.

If your HR department is competent in any way,
you aren't going to be fired for complaining about a Che T-shirt. That
would be so illegal it would mean instant lawsuit. Not to mention all
the bad publicity they would get, since you would of course go straight
to the press after you got fired and tell your sad tale of woe....


Posted by: chemjeff at March 02, 2012 10:34 PM (7FadD)

Oh I'm sure they won't fire me over the T-shirt directly, but I'm sure if they want they'll be able to lay low for a bit and then start building enough paperwork to justify my termination for other "unrelated" reasons. You know how that game is played. If they want me gone I'm sure they'll find a way to do it with enough CYA on there part that any sort of legal action would be a huge uphill battle, one that I couldn't possibly afford.But regardless, if I need to find a new job I will. It would be a little sad, I do like this job and the vast majority of the people I work with - but I guess we'll just wait and see how this plays out.

199 Couple good UFC fights tonights.
UFC introduces new weight class - Flyweights. 125 lbs. They are small but Team Tiny Penis brings the pain. Tiny little balls of fury.

UFC is doing a 4 man tourney to crown a Flyweight champ. Semis were tonight. These guys are really fucking fast.

First fight was good Uncle Creepy vs Mighty Mouse. Uncle Creep got screwed and lost a decision.

2nd fight had Benividez knock out the #1 Japanese guy.

The Flyweights are the newest and lightest weight class in UFC. UFC is hoping they get some asian champions in the lower weight classes. But they keep getting their asses kicked.

Well, unless your boss secretly moonlights as a DNC shill, I think you're being a bit paranoid.
Sure your relationship with your coworkers is going to change, some of them are going to place you into the "kooky fringe nutjob whom I want to avoid when I see him in the hallways" but a lot of people just don't care.
Actually, this relates to when I came "out of the closet" as a conservative at my former job. Sure there were people who decided not to invite me to their parties anymore, but then there were other people - also lefties - with whom my friendship got stronger, because they were either able to look past the politics and value our friendship, and/or also because they started to understand a little bit what it is like to be a minority in terms of political viewpoint in a field that is overwhelmingly dominated by liberals, and recognize and admire that yeah it does take a little bit of guts to speak out in that situation.
The bottom line is that I don't think it will be as bad as you think.

I labored under the delusion a guy in prison for killing his wife wrote the wordstp Unchained Melody, because I heard a local radio personality said so on air. It's such a beautiful song I, for the most part,keptthat to myself, not wanting to ruin the song for someone else. I believe I mentioned the story here and the MM's straightened me out saying, if I recall correctly, a rabbi had written it. I decided to look it up. Hy Zaret, a tin pan alley lyricist wrote it. He may well have been a rabbi. I haven't looked hard enough to confirm that. He died at age 99.

HR departments are almost always repositories of the most wretched scum from the worst (read: most leftist) schools in the nation, with sociology and "studies" degrees being the dominant scholarly disciplines.

Consider this: they work HR in a filthy corporate environment because they weren't GOOD ENOUGH at their chosen majors to gain a university faculty position. Resentment, envy and terminal inferiority complexes are the norm in HR flunkies. Competence is a word that an HR drone couldn't find with a topographic map, compass, GPS, Loran receiver and a bag of bread crumbs.

--I know that Chael Sonnen is a conservative Republican who has been interviewed a few times by Mark Levin.
He ran for office (I think state legislator in Oregon) recently, but I'm not sure to what success.
Beyond his politics, he's a total ham and goofball in his sports persona, which bodes well for future elections for him if his heart's in it.

267 The smaller weight classes can be fun to watch since they are just non-stop fists of fury. Downside is they usually don't have much power. So they can hit each other in the face 50 times and nobody goes down.

The big guys having the punching power, but they gas out early. So if they don't knock each other out in the first round they often end up just lying on each other in exhaustion. Which isn't very exciting. Heavyweight fights that go into the final round often ends like watching two tired walruses fight.

This is the extent of Uncle Ted's endorsement, which was conveyed via Twitter:

It's always hard for me to measure endorsements from libertarian types, particularly from the entertainment field. They've made their millions and in Ted's case are living basically off the grid. There's very little Romney could do to him except screw up his investment income in some way.

Went to a a STEM job fair a couple of weeks ago and started checking companies looking for entry-level mechanical engineers. Had an encounter with the HR chick of a company that does crash tests. Told her that I had a rather unique background since I had been a traffic crash reconstructionist for my police department. Her reaction? Stupid scrunt has the gall to tell me that I don't have any "real world" experience.
Different company, talked to an engineer: he was intrigued by my background. Took my resume and told me to fill out application on company web site. Got an email saying that my resume was going to be forwarded to appropriate work sections. No interview yet, but at least not the hearty f*ck you I got from the HR chick.

320 Well getting through a few of the emails, the majority so far are of the "what happened" variety, a few positive and only one negative. Funny thing though, the negative one was sent anonymously from a hotmail address and he misspelled "mother fucker" twice - he spelled it mother fukker.

I'll keep you folks posted, I have a feeling that whatever happens will happen on Monday when I go back to work.

321 @283: Ainu people are NOT what we call "Japanese." They are the indiginous inhabitants of that island. I guess PC types should call them "Native Japanese."

The Japanese apparantly originally hailed from Korea, and supplanted the Ainus, whom they despise. (Hell, they despise all non-Japanese, even Koreans, but the Ainus especially irk them since they live in the same country with them)

How much do they despise them?

Well, when I was a kid my copy of the Guinness Book of World Records listed the Ainus as "the world's most primitive people." (Heh! Bets THAT category disappeared sometimes in the late 80's!) It said they even had a residual tail!!

Pack of BS, of course, but who is most likely to have spread it, if not the Japs?

Well truthfully I have no idea how my employer will respond, I think if the head of HR had her way I know what the response would be, just from her reactions in the meeting - but at this stage I can't say with any certainty what will happen from here.

I will investigate it of course, just in case - truth is I'm not in any way prepared for a long legal battle, financially or otherwise, but it's been too many years since I tilted at a windmill - maybe it's long overdue.

369
In 1835 some Ngāti Mutunga and Ngāti Tama people, Māori from the Taranaki region of the North Island of New Zealand invaded the Chathams. On 19 November 1835, the Rodney,
a chartered European ship, arrived carrying 500 Maori armed with guns,
clubs and axes, followed by another ship with 400 more Maori on 5
December 1835. They proceeded to enslave some Moriori and kill and cannibalise
others. "Parties of warriors armed with muskets, clubs and tomahawks,
led by their chiefs, walked through Moriori tribal territories and
settlements without warning, permission or greeting. If the districts
were wanted by the invaders, they curtly informed the inhabitants that
their land had been taken and the Moriori living there were now
vassals."[11]

A council of Moriori elders was convened at the settlement called Te
Awapatiki. Despite knowing of the Māori predilection for killing and
eating the conquered, and despite the admonition by some of the elder
chiefs that the principle of Nunuku was not appropriate now, two chiefs —
Tapata and Torea — declared that "the law of Nunuku was not a strategy
for survival, to be varied as conditions changed; it was a moral
imperative."[12]
A Moriori survivor recalled: "[The Maori] commenced to kill us like
sheep.... [We] were terrified, fled to the bush, concealed ourselves in
holes underground, and in any place to escape our enemies. It was of no
avail; we were discovered and killed - men, women and children
indiscriminately." A Maori conqueror explained, "We took possession...
in accordance with our customs and we caught all the people. Not one
escaped....." [13]

After the invasion, Moriori were forbidden to marry Moriori, or to
have children with each other. All became slaves of the Ngati Tama and
Ngati Mutunga invaders. Many died from despair. Many Moriori women had
children by their Maori masters. A small number of Moriori women
eventually married either Maori or European men. Some were taken from
the Chathams and never returned. Only 101 Moriori out of a population of
about 2,000 were left alive by 1862 (Kopel et al., 2003). Although the
last Moriori of unmixed ancestry, Tommy Solomon,[14] died in 1933 there are several thousand mixed ancestry Moriori alive today.

An all-male group of German Moravian missionaries arrived in 1843.[15]
When a group of women were sent out to join them three years later,
several marriages ensued; a few members of the present-day population
can trace their ancestry back to those missionary families.

Did HR even exist before affirmative action? Smite me if you will, but
it's a valid question and I think I already know the answer.


That's part of it, fear of lawsuits is a great motivator, but not all of it. The degree of fiddly regulation that HR departments represent has crept up on us in the last 25 years. In the mid-80's, I went to work for a smallish company that is now a large company. They had 800 employees -- and one HR person. Can you imagine that now? It's all part of the creeping regulatory state. They tell us how much water our toilets can use (even in Seattle, which is awash in water), how much electricity our washing machines can use (one year they went too far and even the socialists at Consumer Reports blew the whistle on how the washing machines couldn't wash worth a damn), what sort of light bulbs we can use. When, exactly, did we as Americans sign up for this crap?

Sometimes I think the permanent bureaucracy is a greater threat than any politician.

388 Brown people = virtuous innocents living happily in the forest like elves
Pale people = evil imperialists destroying the planet

This is simply an article of faith for liberals. Therefore when brown people do something bad, it can only be because pale people made them do it. Brown people have no agency, no free will, no capacity to act as moral beings. Only pale people can do that, and they are evil unless they are liberals.

Honest to Gosh, True Story. My uncle and his band used to open for Little Richard in Vegas and on tour.I was staying overnight at my Grandma's when at about 2AM my uncle wakes me up to surprise me. He and a buddy had made an unannounced stophome. Iwent down to the kitchen and I wasintroduced to Richard who was black. Grandma was not happy at all and figured they were in trouble of some sort. Anyway, next morning Uncle said he would take me to school and wanted to meet my teacher. We went to get into the car and here comes the black guy. I dreaded going into school with the black guy, we did not have any black kids in our school and I just knew this wasn't going to work out well, heck we still had a colored's drinking fountain marked out on the playground. (I was 9 and in 4th grade).As we walked through the halls to get to my room, people were reacting way weirder than I thought they would. We got to my room and Mrs. Moran got all giddy and was darn near ready to faint and in comes the Principal and he's all smiles and shaking their hands. It finally dawned on me that the Black guy was pretty famous, like my Uncle. At home that night, I finally got the guts to ask Richard what he was famous for. Uncle played some 45's with Little Richard, I don't remember which tunes, and I recognized them right away. I was in awe from then on. Little Richard was a hard core Bible thumping preacher and he left me his Bible when he left. It has his real name -Richard Pennyman-address that he wrote in there. I thought he was incredibly weird but really really nice. Oh and he likes his steakso rare it was raw inside. yick.

The way our blessed Federal Republic is faltering right now (with factions perfectly demonstrating the lesson of the Trojan Horse) it seems pretty fuckin' close though, and he didn't set a date. He set the season. Was Sir Isaac Newton a stupid ass God respecting flat earth dumb ass? I am as ready as I need to be, recalling Romans 8:28 among other Scripture and living in the armor of having full faith in God.

443 The mainstreaming of anal sex sucks for those of us still dating. I have no interest in coating my dick in a thin layer of fecal residue. But a lot of women under 35 or so have done it these days. And, in my experience, when chicks get serious they want to make sure they give you everything they gave any old boyfriends. They feel guilty. Plus, if they've done it and they know that I think it's disgusting and gross, then they feel like I think they are disgusting and gross. Which I do kinda.

Girl I dated wanted me to do it just cause her old boyfriend had. She didn't even like it. And only did it twice, But it really bothered her that I wouldn't do it. She just wanted to do it so we could cross that off and never do it again. And the more we talked about it the more grossed out I got. At which point I just ended it.

If she just had never told me everything would've been cool. But chicks always gotta confess their entire sexual history if they think it's a serious relationship.

His records are probably not bad, or at least not obviously bad. So somebody might have gotten them but decided it wasn't worth the fallout from making them public. I think Obama didn't release them not because they're bad but because he's "special" and doesn't feel he has to do things that mere mortal candidates have to do.

492 Apparently! I am sure there was a reason my Uncle stayed in LA and rarely came home to visit. He was murdered in 1992(never solved, but I have some theories!) At the time of his untimely death, he co-owned a very seedy manufacturing plant that produced mail-order dildo's and other fun stuff. My poor Grandmother, at the funeral and oblivious to my Uncle's businesses in later years, faced his business partner in the line up after the service. My mom and aunt were on either side of her when she asked who he was. He answered that he was the Uncle's business partner. Grandma was stunned and told him she had no idea he was in a business. She asked him what type of business and my Aunt, bless her, jumped in and said they manufactered prothesis. The partner looked me right in the eye and I swear they glowed red but he held the secret. I will be forever changed by that funeral. A friend who was a professional ventrilaquist brought his little buddy and together they delivered a eulogy. Another friend cried so much through his eulogy that it was more amazing thansad and cried out at the end with hands raised that Uncle would never walk alone.It was like a Circus showed up to put on a show. I am rambling memories, here, sorry. Done.

509 Well, apologies folks, finally got finished with all the incoming email, the final tally was rather interesting actually. Most folks of course just wanted to know what happened, and once they got the whole story that was it, which was more or less what I expected.

I had about 10 positive messages thus far, mostly people expressing the fact that they shared my views but much like me never spoke up, in fear that they too might suffer blow back. One rather interesting one, the guy said he was a registered democrat and that he probably wouldn't agree with me on most stuff but that he thought I was in the right on this one, he actually pointed out that by HR regs no one is supposed to be wearing "attire that features political images or messages" and are not supposed to avoid "speaking or discussing controversial or political topics at work, whenever possible".

I got 6 negative, maybe 5 really - the 6th one came from a unique hotmail address but the guy called me a mother "fukker" again, 4 times this time, and it was misspelled in the same way all 4 times.

Of the 5-6 negatives, only 2 threatened violence against me personally (including the guy that called me a "mother fukker"). Several of the emails warned that I should certainly be very aware of how exposed my cubicle was and that they wouldn't be "surprised" if some "others" expressed there outrage by vandalizing it's contents. Almost all of them promised that I would now be ostracized at work.

Final count on the emails is 43 at the moment. As promised, I'll keep you posted.

Rush was speaking to the liberal philosophies which are wholly at odds with who we are as a people organized under the polis of self-reliance and the pursuit of happiness.
2. We may have a so called, bloggers roundtable in the near future on the West Coast, likely West L.A.in honor of Andrew Breitbart, organizedhopefully through TheDaily Caller with the underwriting help of Hugh Hewitt.
Thank you and keep Breitbart and his family close in your prayers and let's look at thehorizon toward our goals not at the ground counting cracks.
I love you all.

FWIW, I'm very happy with my Samsung bottom-freezer french door fridge. It's counter-depth, which is more expensive, but nothing like what you are getting stuck for.

Hi logprof!
We're being careful about pumping it.
It's making about 30-35 BOPD of high quality 43 gravity oil and we're about to kick it up to 50-plus and beyond.
It may eventually do 200,000 barrels or more. Quite a nice discovery. The first new Tyler Sand field in North Dakota in over 20 years.
I'll send you a video.
Sold about a thousand barrels over the past two weeks.

My neighbor has a SubZero and has had nothing fut trouble with it. Now it has an interal freon leak and he has to have it charged yearly. That damn thing isn't 4 years old. According to the serviceman, the assumed location of the leak makes it unrepairable or at least not worth repairing.

544 "I'd certainly keep copies of the hostile emails, just for future
reference if necessary. Especially the ones threatening violence of any
sort against you, even if it's just fucking up the cube."

Yup.. got copies of everything, including the original email from HR about the T-shirt and the follow up email from the guy's supervisor that started all of this nonsense, plus of course the emails I sent in response and everything that has come in and out of the personal email account I gave them, so it's all covered.

Also just got an email from my supervisor, she thanked me for moving the whole thing to personal email and not using the work email for this, and also wanted me to let her know if anyone from HR or anyone else contacted me about this, she wants to make sure that they don't try to do an end run around her and she wants to be present for anything that the HR director might have to say on the subject.

I had a college roommate - dorm room - and his girlfriend was probably literally a moron. She was constantly pestering him to have anal sex; him on her not the way the obamas do it. I know this because they were always asking my thoughts on the matter.

Anyway he eventually give in and says fine, but - no pun intended- I am not going to stop until I finish like it or not and , and if she akes him stop they will never do it again. She goes on and on about how she can take it if he can and all kinds of really stupid stuff.

So in the middle of the night I am roused from my drunken stupor by shrieks and screams. Not their usual shrieks and moans but real shrieks and screams. He is driving away and she is screaming about how much it hurts. Sounding more like a big brother trying to get a little brother to cry uncle he keeps yelling "ya want me to quit, ya want me to quit!" She keeps yelling no, no, don't quit" followed by the same two vulgar words.

Anyway, this goes on for a good ten minutes before they finish. When they are all done he says "so ya gonna wanna do that again?" and she replies "probably not for a day or two."

A couple of days later, same thing all over again.

598 "It's good that you're getting support from your supervisor. Chemjeff may
be right that this will turn out to be a really good thing, at least
for the others in your company who just found out they were not alone."

I hope so, in the response email I sent out to the "What the heck happened" inquiries I basically explained that I don't normally talk politics at work, that I didn't intend for that to change as I feel that such discussions really don't belong in the workplace. But that because of recent events I just couldn't in good conscience sit by have others promote their politically ideology in a loud and offensive manner and say nothing.

I did explain that I had no intention of involving HR, that I took the matter up with the person individually, explained my point of view to him and trusted him to be mature enough to realize that regardless of his political views that if his shirt was indeed offensive that he had plenty of others he could wear that were not.

Instead this individual decided to report me to HR, and that is how this all began. I also explained that the supervisor in question was well aware of this fact, since he was the one that contacted HR and that he had actually attended the meeting. So his email saying that I was the one that registered a complaint was, frankly, a lie.

So I did try to keep it professional - and I hope in the long run it will turn out to be a good thing. But regardless I have no regrets.

612 I watched last night's RED EYE today, and it made me feel a lot better
about the whole Andrew Breitbart thing.


Look, don't take this the wrong way, but Breitbart lived exactly the way he wanted to live, and it cost him his life. Every eulogy I've read of Breitbart includes stories of he and the author drinking until dawn. His friend Michael Walsh said that Breitbart had untreated hypertension, and today Bill Whittle revealed that Breitbart had had a major heart attack before this final one. And in the Red Eye tribute, Gutfield reveals at some point that Breitbart smoked.

He never slept, he smoked, he drank constantly, he was seriously overweight, he had a history of heart disease, he had untreated high blood pressure, and by all accounts his anger was genuine. He looked much older than 43, which shows how his lifestyle had impacted him.

I'm saddened by his death, because I admired him. But there was no reason in the world for this to have happened. His father-in-law said he hadn't seen a doctor in over a year. A cardiac patient who refuses to see a doctor?

Life is so precious. We should treat it with the respect and care it deserves. Now, those four kids are fatherless and a young woman is a widow. No amount of success or fame or power or influence is worth killing yourself over.

Let that be Andrew Breitbart's final message. Take care of yourself, because you can and will die young if you don't, and you won't get to do all the things you'd planned, and you'll leave people behind who are shattered by your loss. A life cut short is a terrible tragedy. We can already die of a million causes at any time. Making lifestyle choices that are guaranteed to kill you is a hideous waste, especially when you're as gifted as Breitbart.

623
Back in the day, we were sitting around waiting to do some good ol' Army training, and one of the Captains decided to tell a buttsex story about another officer.....without naming him.

Seems that this less-than-attractive officer had a stunningly beautiful wife, and he was obsessed with dorking her squeekhole. They tried a few times, but she just couldn't get the hang of it, it just hurt her too much.

Eventually, he thought to himself "Anbesol works pretty good........" and he brought it up with the wife, who agreed. Date night arrives and he breaks out the Anbesol, pours a dollup in his hand and slaps it on.

Apparently, when applied to buttholes, it BURNS.

She whipped around and socked him in the eye, and he was sporting a shiner for two weeks afterwards.

We all had a good laugh over this anonymous officer, especially over the fact that he had actually told the Captain all the gory details about his misadventure.

One of us enlisted, the Battalion Commander's driver, cocked his head and said "y'know, that sounds a LOT like Captain Smith over at Brigade"

Silence. Then uproarious laughter, and a Captain literally begging us enlisted men to keep our traps shut.

IIRC, Timothy Zahn (author of the "Heir to the Empire" SW book series) originally pitched the idea of "the Sith" to be another name for the Noghri creatures that the Emperor and Vader used as their personal assassins, therefore Vader would have the title of "Lord of the Sith". Obviously, this idea was discarded in favor of the Sith being the name of the Force-sensitives that used the Dark Side of the Force.

I'm not implying any moral dimension, either. In one of the National Review eulogies the author referred to Breitbart's "long-suffering" wife, who would just shrug helplessly when someone would bring up his lack of sleep and his refusal to slow down, ever.

My intention isn't to be critical. I'm just saying that when a man with such serious health issues does every possible thing he can to exacerbate those particular health issues, the inevitable will happen.

The saddest thing to me is that one of the eulogies said he was afraid of dying. He didn't like to contemplate the thought of not being here anymore. Since I'm convinced that the soul survives the death of the body, I know he still exists somewhere, but not here. And that's a waste and a tragedy.

"Dark Lord of the Sith" existed as a title before Zahn's novels. He wanted his short super-assassins to be those Sith, in a way that I think is sort of like his attempts to give definition to what the Clone Wars were (and should have been.) But they stopped him from doing that so he went with noghri. The novels are still supposed to imply a resemblance between the facial structure of the Noghri and Vader's mask though.

Loved how Zahn almost always started his novels with a Star Destroyer in space. Just like the Original Trilogies always began.

668 Here's another aspect of Breitbart's death: When someone close to you has very serious health issues but refuses to do anything to alleviate them, and in fact seems to be working overtime to make themselves sicker, you inevitably begin to distance yourself from them emotionally.

That's another tragedy. I've been through it with friends, and now I'm going through it with my father. He's a diabetic and cardiac patient who simply refuses to eat well or exercise. His favorite meal is a salami-and-cheese sandwich at least two inches thick. With mayo. Followed by cookies, ice cream, or pie.

It's simply too stressful to care deeply about someone who seems hellbent on killing themselves, so what happens is you end up withdrawing. You do it to preserve your sanity.

It's a terrible position to be put into. It's a Hobson's choice: Either you continue caring, in which case you ruin your own health and mind, or you withdraw, in which case you lose a connection with someone to whom you were once close.

Now I'm kinda mad at him for not taking care of himself. I'm still not sure I believe he didn't go to the doctor after having the heart attack. Did he just check himself out of the hospital and pretend it never happened?

The best revenge is living well. Dick Cheney probably has the worst heart genes on the planet, but he accomplished tremendous amounts for his causes and his beliefs. He had his first heart attack in his 30s I think.

1. As a guy, I can't bring myself to blame/dislike anyone's appreciation of the female form divine. If they're male, it's "I saw her first" -- and if they're female, it's "what can I say, you're right."

2. On the flip side, and with somewhat more concern, I note that she may be reacting to the wild oversexualization of the culture. She may be attracted to manly traits and behaviors, but find that the background level of sexual stimulation dampens her drive toward associating sex with individual persons.....which -- though understandable -- is sad.

the really sad thing is that shes had long unhappy talks with Grim about how all the guys her age are raging assholes. Grimmy whose business is pretty much Stock in trade is young men had to break it to her. Maybe one in fourty of these jerkoff is ok to go out with her, and of them, they have tastes and preferences too and those may run to tall and dark haired not ginger with a strong nose, which means even tho she is a DOLL, she may not meet that guy for a while yet unless she gets her ass out there and LOOKS for him. Right now shes hangin with some losers who i would have considered too Lame to play Advanced DD with and thats mostly because she has classes with her and know better than to treat her like meat. Now if one of them would get a real job and a clue, I would feel better. Till then...

It sounds like the attraction is there -- though banked from the raging fire it can become -- but she's possibly overcautious.

Now, I'll be the first to admit that I haven't done any surveys of the LA mid-20's male population for relationship potential....but it should be noted that looking for a one-in-a-million guy in LA....means that there are 18 of 'em wandering around. Encourage her excitement about finding such a one, and steer her toward places/events/activities where such a one may be found. If she's despairing of the prospects of "looking for love in all the wrong places", she's probably right.

2. Is it wine before beer, or beer before wine? Which one gets you complete FUBAR, and which one just makes you yack and feel like shit the next day? Oh, tip, I'm looking for getting FUBAR. Not into the yakkin thing, though I know some people get off on that and even pay extra. Not my bag, baby.
3. I forget what three is for. Anal. Pron. Anal pron. Who knows. I don't care. I put my wine in the freezer to get cold and it froze solid, and I'm bummed. Kinda. Been drinking beer and the little little bit of applejack what was left. I knew I shoulda bought some Val-U-Rite and now it's too late and I can't because I live in an assbackwards state where you can't get booze at 3am. How utterly primitive.

I have pretty much decided not to bug out "in case of fire." I have a defensible position, neighbors who I may not care for personally but have fierce property-rights convictions (and maybe a few other convictions) of their own, so we can para-mil up for common defence if it comes to that. I have a lot of tools, arable land, bunker of sorts, etc. My only problem is water. We have plenty of rain. But I'm smack on top of the Old Ohio Dome, and whenever I try to drill a well, I hit oil.

Eh same old shit.

That sucks about the gig. About 15 years I wasted a finger really bad on an electric planer. I was fucking lucky, I only lost the bottom of the first finger under the nail on the playing/fingering hand. I didn't lose any nail or actual finger, but I needed a skin graft to save it. I was in between bands at the time, but I was filling in with a friend's band who needed a second guitar player, so I would jump in for a few of the 2 guitar player tunes they did. 2 weeks after the accident I was playing with a bandaid, but using only 3 of my fingers for leads. I was determined.

757 gushka, the trick with ferals is to make friends when they are still kittens. My parents have a feral, and they love him. My brother has two ferals from my back porch, I had gotten them used to being lap caps in a couple days -- but they had just been weaned. I mean by days, they kept trying to go back to momma cat but she would swat them off.
I have three cats, their momma cat was feral (a different one) and they are as sweet and friendly as bred cats. Nothin' wrong with a feral cat, you just have to find 'em before they get old, bitter, and cynical.
Like guys, if you think about it.

758 Oh, I have a starter cat, too, he was a bred cat but couldn't handle a multiple cat house before so kind of a rescue. he does ok now, so four cats in total. But I'm not gay. I've heard that guys with cats have to specify that. Dunno why.

1/2 of the first glass of post beer wine consumed, no apparent ill effects noted.
For the record, Pinot Grigio wine, and the beer was budwiser, which isn't REALLY beer if you think about it, now is it?

Her testimony cannot be allowed to stand because it's: (1) from a self-confessed dumbass or slut (if birth control costs her $1000/year, ir's one or the other), (2) from a professional Dem [but I repeat myself...], (3) irrelevant to the unfunded medical care out there, (4) duplicative to nongovernmental prophylactics available out there, and (5) tangential to the freedom of contract from religiously-minded organizations.

790 Ace, I love you like a brother, but it's all about rejecting the narrative. If you buy into the narrative that any scrunt with a vagina can whine about policy, you're ACCEPTING the narrative frame -- and the reason that this is craptastic is secondary. It could be craptastic because she's a shill, a whore, or an idiot -- there's ample evidence for each. The point is that the narrative is being pushed by lies and manipulation. If you grant Tapeworm -- sorry, "Fluke" -- any relevance at all, you advance the narrative. Shooting her down sixteen ways from Sunday shows how empty and hollow the Dems' argument is.

800 IIRC, Timothy Zahn (author of the "Heir to the Empire" SW book series) originally pitched the idea of "the Sith" to be another name for the Noghri creatures that the Emperor and Vader used as their personal assassins, therefore Vader would have the title of "Lord of the Sith". Obviously, this idea was discarded in favor of the Sith being the name of the Force-sensitives that used the Dark Side of the Force.
Posted by: Kratos (Ghost of Sparta) at March 03, 2012 12:58 AM (UR5vq)


"Dark Lord of the Sith" existed as a title before Zahn's novels. He wanted his short super-assassins to be those Sith, in a way that I think is sort of like his attempts to give definition to what the Clone Wars were (and should have been.) But they stopped him from doing that so he went with noghri. The novels are still supposed to imply a resemblance between the facial structure of the Noghri and Vader's mask though.

Loved how Zahn almost always started his novels with a Star Destroyer in space. Just like the Original Trilogies always began.
Posted by: buzzion at March 03, 2012 01:06 AM (GULKT)

In Star Wars continuity, the Sith were an aien race from the planet Korriban conquered by Dark Jedi who subsequently titled themselves Dark Lords Of The Sith.

813 Here's an example of the difference between details and a premise.

Adult man marries an adult woman. Adult man is not a heavy partier, but one time in 6 months goes out drinking with his buddies and comes home at 3 AM. Adult woman pitches fit -- he can:

a) listen to every one of her details about the situation, or

b) keep the subject on the premise -- does she have the authority in their relationship to tell him what he can do, and with whom, and for how long? Maybe he can call before hand. Maybe he can invite her along, or not, cuz hopefully they are actually friends.

But, if he starts arguing the details of his night out with the boys, he needs to be sure he does not accept the premise that she has the right to tell him what to do.

same thing arguing with Dems. Their premise is we are their slaves, and they get to spend what we produce. I refuse to accept the premise. They can take all their sob story details and shove them up their asses. I am not their slave.

That is known as the "tyranny of the majority", or shorter, mob rule. This is what the Constitution is supposed to prevent, which is what differentiated the U.S. from earlier Democracies.

But what is really ironic is that the founding father thought the bill of rights was not needed because the Constitution only gave a limited amount of power to the federal government.

Nor do we care what sob story they have in store for us as their justification for why they should own us. We have god given individual rights and we always have.

834 What really pisses me off is that Congress has handed off rule making authority to thousands of government agencies who can control our everyday lives down to how and what we will eat and shit. And they do that via executive fiat......so let it be written, so let it be done.

And unless you have an endless supply of money to drag these things to the Supreme Court one at a time, there is nothing you can do. Voting in republicans sure hasn't managed to do anything about all these bureaucracies.


And BTW, Congress can not hand off that authority legally which is yet another violation of the Constitution.

835 They can take all their sob story details and shove them up their asses.

You are absolutely right about where the meat of this argument lies, but the people getting tangled in the nasty details are moving the ball on getting these kinds of sob stories shoved up the left's asses.

This "bare the neck for pity" ploy is the foundation of the welfare state. The only correct response is to swing the axe.

I am not their slave.

And, if I ever become somebody's slave, that somebody will certainly not be some shameless scrunt willing to pull TMI lies out of her ass to tell Congress in front of rolling cameras.

836 Must be on the Fluke slut story. This is what I have written this morning for the "news" thread:

And the big news in nearly every paper in the country, or at least the ones I monitor. Its Rush's calling of the lying Georgetown scrunt a slut. Then they have the audacity to say Dems are taking advantage of it. One wonders how many of these papers promoted big stories when Dem talking heads trashed Condaliza Rice and other Bush officials? None you say? How about that.

But that is not the issue. The issue, as ace stated it yesterday is Rush. Should we be defending him and has he given the enemy ammunition? Should we not attack them in this manner calling their lying witness a slut? I say we should be attacking them relentlessly. When they pile on Rush we should not defend Rush. Hell, we shouldn't even mention him.

We should attack the shit out of them on what they are trying to hide, the economy, gas prices, unemployment, inflation et al. And we should say that all this birth control crap is just a huge distraction THEY dreamed up to get the public off their absolute failure. Do not mention Rush at all. To the pundits, if asked directly remark that a lying college student is not the issue, the economy is the issue. Do not mention Rush at all.

Maybe you are right but I fear you are not. My guess is their control of the corporate media will allow these scum to just change the subject to "conservatives are all upset about sex again." Those arguing the details will be caught flatfooted again cuz the argument will cease to make the slightest bit of sense. Once again, those folks arguing the correct side of the details will try to employ logic to their own demise. They will be winning, but winning the wrong battle.


We've seen it hundreds of times. They are liars who constantly change the subject and refuse to acknowledge any logic. There is absolutely no way of winning a logical reasoned debate when the other side completely owns the media.


The other choice is just to ignore the details and reject the premise. That bitch has no right to anybody else's income regardless of how she intends to waste the money.

This is where when Faux calls a Republican on for an interview they need to go on in the attack mode that I was describing. Unfortunately they almost never do that.

Sometimes, hell a lot of times, I think Fox purposely goes after shitty Republicans and bad talking heads to make it appear they are "fair and balanced" but in reality to put forth the weakest defense possible.

This is harming the left with the people that count, and the MFM fucks who cannot see past the confines of their hipster bubble have no clue about how badly they are shooting themselves in the foot by publicizing it.

Fluke's *telling* her bullshit story in public was appalling on enough levels to give any person with even a shred of decency reason to despise the bitch: the behavior suggested, the total bullshit costs, the public airing, and the very idea that the taxpayer should be on the hook for her expenses.

As far as double standards go, I would be equally disgusted with any male who testified to the same.

The left is pushing the "intolerance" angle to paint decent people as bigots as to deny them the moral authority even to comment. So be it. Let's have that fight. Filth like Fluke hand me the moral authority to trash their costly unwillingness to overcome their animal impulses the moment they ask me to subsidize that behavior from my pockets. Suck it.

852 There is absolutely no way of winning a logical reasoned debate when the other side completely owns the media.

You've undermined your own argument with this.

Had Rush Limbaugh simply played the scrunt's obvious lies and said, "the taxpayers are not your slave," then this would never have seen the light of day outside of his listeners.

I think this was a shrewdly calculated play, and it will win where it counts with the people who count. The OWS 99/1 breakdown made no damned sense. Fluke is a natural fit to represent "the other" in the minds of *decent* people everywhere, and the raunchiness at the core is necessary to make this happen.

856 Now, I think you are I are actually on the same page.

I think we've always been on the same page.

The problem is that there has to be a vector to get reasoned arguments past the MFM shields. Fluke provided that vector with her dumbass story: "I'm a slut who demands that the taxpayers cover my sex expenses despite the fact that I'm on the fast-track to OWS one-percenthood, and I will shout this story without shame from the mountaintops for all to hear."

This Fluke business has and will continue to animate the overrepresented hipster bubble crowd because of "ugly and intolerant moralizing religious bigotry," but the scrunt's story is over the top.

The one-line argument should anyone raise the topic in real life is: "I cannot imagine how embarrassed her family must have been to hear their daughter testify about her sexual exploits in front of God any everybody."

Also, any GOPer who starts abusing the MFM the way you recommend--excellent recommendations, BTW--will find himself cut off. These would effectively be kamikaze attacks.

They will lie about everything and they will run bogus polls that wildly oversample Obutthead supporters. They will push R doom at every opportunity. The polls won't tighten until the last 3 days.

In the end, people will vote based on their pocketbooks again. The only questions left are:

a) what about fraud?

b) has the government finally managed to get 50% + 1 Americans on the take so voting their pocketbook is a vote for the welfare state?

c) will the right actually be dumb enough to let the media set the agenda or will they stay on message with some discipline?

Another point to be made is there is going to be a lag time between a change in tactics and the reaction to that change. It may take the media a few weeks before they recognize that the formerly 'normally reliable' interviews have changed.

I'm not worried about the election. I have a boundary condition. Either Obama gets decisively stomped based on the economy and his poor performance, or it's game over anyway.

Obama is the culmination of over two centuries' relentless erosion of the rule of law. Words have lost their meanings, truth has lost its authority, and reason plays second fiddle to emotional sympathy. We are a mob-rule democracy, and we have been since long before anyone here was born.

We have had plenty of would-be tyrants as POTUS, but all were held in check by their own decency or by decent people who stood in their way.

Obama has no decency. Obama has no internal limits. The jury is still out on whether the people ostensibly representing me as his opposition have the juice to stand in his way.

It comes down to the election in November. If Obama gets his ass rightfully curb-stomped, then we have a chance. If Obama loses in a squeaker, then we're fucked because the GOP will sit on their asses as is their wont, lamenting a lack of a mandate. If Obama wins--whether close or in a landslide--he will claim a mandate for his agenda, and he will start ruling by executive order before the end of the next day.

The incumbent GOPers need access to get reelected. Charitably stipulating a true conservative whose only thought is for the good of the country, the justification for his timidity could be: "I can most effectively push conservatism by keeping my seat."

Vic: What would be good is to get rid of all the weak-kneed R's so that in order to interview ANY Republican they get a good one.

Yep. I'm with you on this. I'd like to see all the RINO senators gone. While it's true that RINOs are the best we can get in the blue states, keeping the balance close gives ticket-splitters cover to put up those damned democrat senators from red states. Also, the deepest cache of political capital any politician has is selling out his base/party.

This is a different topic that I barely addressed as "game over." Meek acceptance requires meek acceptance by everyone. I don't expect everyone to meekly accept Obama's tyrannical designs.

IMO, the most likely scenario is a taxpayer's strike. Quarterly filers will be making their last 2012 installment in mid-January. W-2 employees who want a piece of the action can poke holes in their timesheets with leave without pay.

===========
A request for co-tape is a billboard that screams "you can't be trusted." Anyone who takes that step may as well say it right out loud.
Frankly, I don't have a problem with that. I think saying everything right out loud is the best tactic we can use. I think of it like the family with an alcoholic parent. Much of the worst of the long term damage is related to the lies about the situation. Saying "Yeah, my Mom's a drunk and she's fucking up my whole family" turns out to be a helpful thing to do. We can say "The corporate media is here to help a powerful elite own certain politicians." Why should we continue to allow them to pretend otherwise?
In fact, I don't see the value in accepting any of their stupid narratives. It has probably been more than 20 years since Brian Williams had a tax year in which he failed to take in more money than the average American makes in an entire lifetime. Great. More power to him. I don't begrudge him the money, and I am not jealous. But, I see no reason why anyone should continue to go along with the stupid idea that after all those GE paychecks he is really 'anti-corporate' and 'for the little guy.' At a minimum we should all call bullshit on that stuff.

That co-tape thing came from an episode from 60 Minutes on construction at a Nuclear Power plant. The plant management agreed to do the interviews as long as they could co-tape along side them.

I watched the side by side comparisons and it wold make you want to puke. It was obvious that the 60 min piece was a lying hit job from the start.

However, when the utility tried to get local PBS stations to play it CBS threatened lawsuit to PBS, who of course folded.

I didn't know about that. "Great, you have your co-tape. Now, who is going to show it?"

877 Every time I can remember they have no next step in mind and they do not follow thru.

There is no next step. If the left wants to adopt a self-proclaimed dirty slut as their contraception mandate mascot, then let them run with it. This is going to kill them with the people who count.

And yes, I went us/them over shit like this years ago.

I don't expect this to go as well as you do. My suspicion is that "those Republican meanies" will be the only story two weeks from now. We will all get a chance to see if the people you are counting on will remember the genesis of the whole thing down the road.
In some ways, I think the credibility of the corporate media is ready to topple. They are stupid, complacent, arrogant, and wildly overextended. Their lies are no longer well polished and their bias is amazingly brazen. The law of probabilities guarantees that can't work forever. But, it has lasted past when I thought everyone would see right thru it. So, I am the wrong person to predict how much longer it can go on. Maybe you actually can pull some people's legs forever without them ever catching on.

Let them run with it.

Tolerance runs against our instincts. It has to be taught. Tolerance is a good thing to a point, but the left has pushed it way past the point of its being good to undermine the foundations of our civilization.

The further they stretch it with PC, the more people wake up to the fact that it's a house of cards.

Somebody loudmouthed about being a dirty slut is "the other." Whether the details are true or not, Fluke staked that turf for herself.
