The NYT Keeps Repeating Old Lies About This Photo

Despite the fact that the plane that dropped the napalm was flown by a South Vietnamese pilot it's always America's fault somehow:

It has taken more than three months, but the New York Times today published a sort-of correction of its erroneous description about the napalm attack in Vietnam in June 1972 that preceded the famous photograph of children terrified and wounded by the bombing." Plus this: "[T]he phrasing - 'while the planes that carried out the attack were "American planes" in the sense that they were made in the United States, they were flown by the South Vietnamese Air Force, not American forces' - makes it sound like a bunch of teenagers borrowing daddy's car."

Longtime ONT readers will also know what happened to girl shown in the photo.

'Hold Down the Fort' Now Officially Racist?

Well at least according to the State Department's PC department because it might offend native americans:

How many times have you or a colleague asked if someone could "hold down the fort?" For example, "Could you hold down the fort while I go to." You were likely asking someone to watch the office while you go and do something else, but the phrase's historical connotation to some is negative and racially offensive. To "hold down the fort" originally meant to watch and protect against the vicious Native American intruders. In the territories of the West, Army soldiers or settlers saw the "fort" as their refuge from their perceived "enemy," the stereotypical "savage" Native American tribes.

Except when you actually look at the history of the phrase, there's zero evidence that it ever was used in reference to indian attacks. In fact the earliest American usage seems to have come from the Civil War when Gen. Sherman relieved a trapped Union force near Atlanta:

Ma­ny had fall­en, and the re­sult seemed to ren­der a pro­long­a­tion of the fight hop­eless. At this mo­ment an of­fi­cer caught sight of a white sig­nal flag far away across the val­ley, twen­ty miles dis­tant, up­on the top of Ken­e­saw Mount­ain. The sig­nal was an­swered, and soon the mes­sage was waved across from moun­tain to moun­tain:

“Hold the fort; I am coming. W. T. Sher­man.”

Cheers went up; every man was nerved to a full ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the po­si­tion

Yet another case where administrators turn to their own inner racist for the etymology of phrases.

The Growth of Walmart

Apparently this is supposed to show the decline of America or something. But to me the growth seems steady and organic - which is a sign that Walmart is doing something right and has a winning formula.

Watch Neil Armstrong Escape Death

The LLRV (Lunar Lander Research Vehicle) was a notoriously dangerous yet effective trainer for practicing landing on the moon. Here in 1968 due to winds and a propellant leak Armstrong was forced to eject with less than a second to spare. But that was just another day for him.

In his Armstrong biography First Man, author James Hansen recounts how astronaut Alan Bean saw Armstrong that afternoon at his desk in the astronaut office. Bean then heard colleagues in the hall talking about the accident, and asked them, "When did this happen?" About an hour ago, they replied. Bean returned to Armstrong and said, "I just heard the funniest story!" Armstrong said, "What?" "I heard that you bailed out of the LLTV an hour ago." "Yeah, I did," replied Armstrong. "I lost control and had to bail out of the darn thing." "I can't think of another person," Bean recalls, "let alone another astronaut, who would have just gone back to his office after ejecting a fraction of a second before getting killed."
You can watch the full clip here.

Plus the one thing that gave Armstrong nightmares before the mission.

So Why Can't You Wear White After Labor Day?

Short answer: To show that you aren't nouveau riche.

While no one is completely sure exactly when or why this fashion rule came into effect, our best guess is that it had to do with snobbery in the late 1800s.

The wives of the super-rich ruled high society with an iron fist after the Civil War. As more and more people became millionaires, though, it was difficult to tell the difference between old money, respectable families, and those who only had vulgar new money. By the 1880s, in order to tell who was acceptable and who wasn't, the women who were already "in" felt it necessary to create dozens of fashion rules that everyone in the know had to follow.

...But even though the rule was originally enforced by only a few hundred women, over the decades it trickled down to everyone else. By the 1950s, women's magazines made it clear to middle class America: white clothing came out on Memorial Day and went away on Labor Day.

Do NOT Taunt LeeAnn Rimes on Twitter

Or else she'll track you down and berate you over the phone.

To recap: LeAnn Rimes is an unstable lunatic who is on twitter 24 hours a day, mostly to argue with anyone who calls her names. One of those people was a teacher in California named Kimberly Smiley, who then stopped following Rimes. But Rimes had more to say, so she called Smiley at home and cursed for 20 minutes. Smiley recorded part of the call and put it online here.

And then sue you for recording her berating.

Rimes filed an invasion of privacy lawsuit Thursday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, alleging that Kimberly Smiley and her daughter Lexi Smiley secretly recorded a telephone conversation "to spitefully ensure that out-of-context excerpts of that recording would be disseminated to the public on various websites" and to portray Rimes "in an egregiously false and negative light and cause her emotional distress."

Gallup's tracking for Obama Approval is over 3 days and is a terrible -5.

Gallup's tracking for Romney v Obama is over 7 days and is O+1

Suggests a lot of room for a Gallup "bounce" in the next couple of days as the pre-convention polls are washed out of the 7-day track....

I need to set the DVR. The people who want to "marry" their ice machines, and the Animal Sex Liberation Front segments will not be aired by the networks.

76 I had the oddest experience this week. I have a friend who is a real lefty. She's wife's best friend, but we've always gotten along well enough, I count her as a friend too, I just make it a point not to discuss politics with her. Oh, it's come up once or twice when we've chatted over the years, but I'm always careful to be low key, more "Don't you think.." and "Well, if.." rather than confrontational or rebuttal style. She's smart, and aside from not wanting to cause a scene, I have been trying to gently lead her to water and hoping that she'll think.

Well, earlier this week she was visiting and happened to mention that she's boycotting Chick-Fil-A(which is fine, there are lefty businesses I avoid because of their politics, I've never really seen a reason to mention it to anyone, I just go elsewhere, but hey, spend your money where you will). I asked "Because of what the owner said?" and she said yes, she wouldn't patronize a business that was anti-gay. Unable to resist, I asked "Who did you vote for last time? Obama?" She said yes and I asked sweetly "And what was his position on gay marriage in 2008?" Before I even had the question out, she stuck her fingers in her ears and said 'LALALA I'M NOT LISTENING TO YOU". Literally. Well, what she said was "I'm not discussing politics" over and over in a loud voice, but the effect was the same. I was kinda stunned. How reliable a belief system can you have if you're not willing to test what you believe(and how you act on that belief) against reality and defend it on it's merits? THIS is the "reality based" community? I still like her, and I'll still be glad to see her and enjoy having her around, but I find that I respect her a lot less. It's kind of disappointing.

81 Watching Chris Wallace on Fox beat up on Axelrod. Sweet.

My wife is very smart (but married me anyway), reasonably well
informed, but not a political junkie. She hates yard signs on general
principles, usually won't let me get one before late September- and one
sign is the limit. Last week she asked when we were getting a Romney
yard sign; I put it up Saturday. She sees it and says, "It's too small. I
want a big one, a six footer at least."



I love that woman.

On to a comment. On FB someone put up a pic of Ryan. A friends 10 year old son made a single word comment, "Evil." I son't discuss politics with chronological children. Instead I admonished him to not be so quick to label someone in such absolutes without real knowledge of the word and the person. His dad is a real lefty and assumed he got his opinion from his father.
.
Today I got a call from his father asking me to allow his son to apologize and that he is trying to teach him restraint as to what he posts. The kid got on and apologized. I asked him to explain why he was apologizing. Of course he was at a loss for words. I explained his father and I disagree on some things. Does that make me evil? Then after a little elaboration I moved on to his getting back into the hockey season. I just thought you might be interested.

A small town near here passed some ordinance that a retailer couldn't be over xxxx number of square feet, so they have in essence banned the "big box" stores. All those stores do is build right on the county line so that they are right at the town's border. It really is a win win for everyone.

First off, it's fantastically written and casted. There is a lot of depth to the key characters, and the main guy Bryan Cranston slowly transforms from someone you sympathize with to something quite opposite.

Beyond that, there is always high intensity. Sometimes bubbling under the surface, more often in your face. And it comes from all directions.

I look at it like I'm living on the wild side vicariously through them on Sunday night, right before I go back to being a middle manager Monday morning.

Quick update and not to bring anyone down. Went to Richmond Marina
yesterday to get on our chartered boat. It looked a bit gloomy, but the
minute we got out on the Bay to Angel Island, it cleared, the Bay was
calm and we found a spot (charter boat guy gave us exact coordinates)
where we scattered my grand daughters ashes and dropped littles pink and
purple orchid blossoms. It was so beautiful.

204 From Hillbuzz:how the Obama's can get a $35 million dollar estate.

The woman who is organizing the funding of the Obama’s post-presidential estate is Penny Pritzker (pictured above, in between the worst President since Jimmy Carter and a woman who only dresses appropriately on Halloween or April Fool’s Day), who is also in charge of raising the donations for Obama’s presidential library and museum. The two are more or less the same project, with the priority being to get the $35 million together to fund the purchase of the Obamas’ new home. It appears that Pritzker herself may contribute up to half of the total purchase price, making up the difference from whatever the Obamas could not afford and the fundraising wouldn’t cover. Pritzker is a billionaire who in recent years resolved a long-standing family feud over her late father’s vast business empire that includes the Hyatt Hotel chain as well as assorted manufacturing operations. The wealthiest families in Chicago are being leaned on heavily to contribute with Penny aggressively guilting them with “appeals of you don’t want the President to be homeless in January, do you?”. That’s more or less an exact quote from Penny, if my source within her social group is not paraphrasing.

Liberals. When they think they have an echo chamber, it gets real interesting. My mom was telling me about a group of her friends who are Libs that were just pounding on Clint last Friday. They just couldn't believe that anyone would ever criticize "Dear Leader". My mom doesn't talk politics with these women because she loves to play bridge, and these women are really good bridge players, but she really went off on them at lunch with me after they played.

They could lose the election by 40% of the popular vote and they'd be stunned for about a week or two, then be back screaming about how evil Romney is and how he's going to outlaw orgasms, throw homosexuals into death camps, and force everyone to pray while masturbating as he personally killed poor black children and old people starve and get cancer.

Even if Romney totally turns around the economy, returns the jobs, and we're back in 1986 they'll still go on about how evil he is. It just doesn't matter what happens, what the truth is, or how things turn out.

287 My cousin and I used to have pretty good political discussions all the time during the Bush era and especially so leading up to the last election. We haven't been talking about that, or much of anything really, the last several years. It hasn't got nasty really, just not talking too much.

My aunt and uncle (his parents), and my parents have really had a rough time since the last election. They had some real bad arguments in 08'. It's more complicated than this, but to summarize I'll just say they were public school teachers and my mom was a private school teacher. You get the idea, but they went in all kinds of directions after that and neither side let up until it got nasty.

Anyway, my aunt and uncle were in my town right before the election, and we actually had a pretty good conversation. One thing my uncle said stuck with me...I was arguing we have no idea what this guy is but everything we do know suggests he's way off to the left. My uncle bought that he was a pragmatic centrist of the Clinton variety and if he wasn't he wouldn't vote for him again.

Sadly, as you might guess, he still doesn't think he's all that left wing.

291 You can't even "agree to disagree" any more. They just want to screech at you, no matter what you say.

And even if you get them to think rationally and even agree with you on something... in a few days, or even hours back they are to the same old position, like its a mental illness.

Their worldview will not allow them to shift positions for long. They are able to literally deny what they know rationally to be true, because they seek a "higher truth" or some such trash.

Most of them are so poorly educated in rhetoric and logic that they are incapable of critical thought, they simply know some things are true without the capacity to express why or defend it, and when confronted with proof it is not true, they cling to it anyway.

Their belief system isn't based on an underlying set of principles that remain constant. It's based on loyalty to progressivism and the Dem party. They think they believe in causes and principles, but they really don't as evidenced by overnight changes in positions such as gay marriage.

Thus, they cannot argue their beliefs on the basis of principles which is why she reacted with "I'm not going to discuss politics!" I don't think lefties understand why they can't debate conservatives.

Its cheap, its easy to find, it has everything in one area to save time and energy to get what you need.

And yet, because it refuses to be union, tends to squeeze favored boutiques out of existence because they charge too much, and most of all because it's so middlebrow and middle America, oh my yes, so very low class and so gauche, so different from the Manhattan cocktail party class then its horrible.

339 "The lefty's also feel no need to hold back their opinions in public or wherever."

They still seem convinced that they won. They think that the Tea Party Movement is a few white old people, that Obama represents what America is longing for, that Conservatism is a tiny dying minority, and that Carville is still right about Democrats dominating politics for 40 years or more.

2010 threw them for a loop, but the press very carefully argued that it was just anti-incumbent fever and not anything against the left, and they bought it

Because otherwise they'd have to face that their whole mood and ideology is based on a lie.

348 Attacking WJC is not where we want to go:

1) It wastes firepower.

2) People think back to the Clinton years with nostalgia. Yeah, he had a lot of scandals, but the economy was rocking and rolling. How do you think the public would choose between four more years of WJC or Barry 0?

3) Clinton is as likely to hurt Obama as he is Romney, provided he's left alone.

I don't think he has any great animosity toward Romney, but he doesn't care for Obama. And you put those two egos side by side and make them share a stage, there's always going to be friction.

The media has done a fantastic job convincing people that's what it was about. I had a liberal, but sane, government teacher in high school who had to explain to a girl that what it in fact was about was this little thing called perjury. And that if one of them had done it they would be in jail.

This was in 2007 though, so said sane liberal teacher could now be batshit. But I doubt it, she seemed like she had half a brain.

395 GG: Who’s Jesus to you?
OBAMA: Right. Jesus is a historical figure for me, and he’s also a bridge between God and man, in the Christian faith, and one that I think is powerful precisely because he serves as that means of us reaching something higher. And he’s also a wonderful teacher. I think it’s important for all of us, of whatever faith, to have teachers in the flesh and also teachers in history.

I have never met a Christian that would lead by calling Jesus a “historic figure.” “Son of God,” “Saviour,” or “Prophet,” but “historic figure” OMG. Using “historic figure” doesn't even qualify him to be a Muslim.

I was left believing that Obama uses religion like one would wear a suit coat; he puts them on to please those who he meets. You know, a recreational opiate.

My wife has been on a political FB group page and taking an inordinate amout of crap from the libs there. I got tired of it so I joined to offer her some support. The topic of the last few days has been on voter ID laws, or as libs like to call them racist voter intimidation laws.. This was my first post:
"There is a rich history of voter intimidation in our country. Both sides have been guilty. Jim Crow laws, initiated by post civil wars Southern Democrats, Union intimidation leading back to Tammany Hall in New York, Boss Cox in Cincinnati and More recently the Daley family in Chicago are the the higher profile ones that come to mind. Walking around money is given to pastors of some minority churches to encourage voting for the "right" guy. Heck, the old Humphrey Bogart/ Edward G. Robinson, Key Largo, had a line that tracked very closely Stalin's quote, "It doesn't matter who votes. It matters who counts the vote." I am sure some liberties have been taken with the translation, as Russian sentence structure is substantially different than English but I am sure you get my drift. I really don't understand the mindset of those who think requiring an ID to vote is intimidation and too high a hill to climb for voters. It seems condencending to minorities. That leads me to the conclusion. It is an effort to leave that particular door open to fraud. Our system of one man one vote has to remain inviolate if our government is to continue as a viable institution. Semper Vigilans should rule the day."
The only lib thus far is this: "I'm lost on this post completely?"
Obviously, I am totally lacking in my obviousness.

Obama’s deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said Sunday that Republicans think “lying is a virtue” while discussing the recent GOP convention.

“It was a week of personal attacks, empty platitudes, [where] the one thing that you were left with is they really think that lying is a virtue…I think the American people disagree with that,” she remarked on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

“Sometimes Michelle and I not doing the circuit, going out to dinners with folks is perceived as us being cool — it actually has more to do with us being parents. When we’re in town here in Washington, in the evenings, 6:30 we want to be at the dinner table with our kids, and I want to be helping with the homework and I think that’s sometimes interpreted as me not wanting to be out there slapping backs and wheeling and dealing.

The condescension seems to me to be racist to some extent. The subtext is that the disproportionally affected minorities aren't capable of figuring out how to get a photo ID in time to vote even though the topic has been discussed extensively in every state trying to institute such a safeguard against voter fraud. Additionally, most such states are supporting many methods of helping valid state residents (and with voting privileges) to get to a DMV or equivalent.

The only logical conclusion is that opponents of photo ID WANT voter fraud to continue. After all, in a close election, cheating may be the only way to win, and Alinsky would approve a "by any means" approach to politics.

Posted by: Reader C.J. Burch (fake Internet person) writes.... at September 02, 2012 11:30 PM (sJTmU)

473 Well I think the left does have a genuine problem with voter ID based on a kneejerk distaste with "showing papers" and the idea of voting being as open and free as possible. Remember: the higher the turnout, the better leftist candidates tend to do, because they don't have very dedicated, responsible, or even coherent followers. Remember Obama girl missing her state's primary vote? Yeah.

But behind it is a sort of silent agreement with some voter fraud. Its fraud, sure, but its for a good cause: preventing the eeeevil Republican from being elected. If you have to cheat a little to stop that, well its a small price to pay, they think.

Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Desmond Tutu, described by Barack Obama as a “moral titan” in 2009, called Sunday for George W. Bush and Tony Blair to face prosecution at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for their respective roles in the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Tutu, the retired Anglican Church’s archbishop of South Africa, wrote in an op-ed piece for The Observer newspaper that the ex-leaders of Britain and the United States should be made to “answer for their actions,” claiming the Iraq war has destabilized and polarized the world “to a greater extent than any other conflict in history.”

the hp calculators really do seem like a more robust package, but in ti's defence, i've been using the same ti-89 since high school! i *do* have another one i bought a couple of years ago on a business trip when I had left mine, but i still use the old one occasionally, and despite all of the scratches around the corner it has accumulated on account of being dropped so often, it still works as good as it did out of the box!

492 when you have decided you are facing true evil the amount of true evil you grant yourself license to engage in increases geometrically.

Exactly. The critical thing, I think is to remember that nobody is 100% of any one thing, ever. They always are conflicted, they always have mixed motives, and they'll vary from moment to moment, let alone day to day. Hitler wasn't totally evil, he was good to people he liked, the old "Hitler liked dogs" line.

Human beings have intrinsic value, and I'm not a better person than someone else simply because they are wrong or I disagree with them. But that's not how the left sees it.

Obama, Ive known you very well
Ive heard you whining everyday
I never really looked before
But now you take my cash away.

Suddenly you're in my life
Part of everything I do
You got me working day and night
Just trying to keep paying for you.

On your teleprompter I found my paradise
My only chance for happiness
And if I lose you now I think I would die.

Oh say you'll always be my Jeebus
We can make it shine, we can take forever
Just a minute at a time.

More than Obama, more than Obama to me
More than Obama, more than Obama to me
More than Obama, oh, oh, oh.

There are stories old and true
Of people so in love like you and me
And I can see myself
Let history repeat itself.

Reflecting how I feel for you
Thinking about those people then
I know that in a thousand years
Id fall in love with you again.

Air Force One is the only way that we should fly
This is the only way to go
And if I lose your ride I know I would die.

Oh say you'll always be my baby
We can make it shine, we can take forever
Just a minute at a time.

More than Obama, more than Obama to me
More than Obama, more than Obama to me
More than Obama, oh, oh, oh.

I think there was a mention here a while back that the lawyers in one of the voter ID cases were really pissed off at their plaintiff, because she went out and got a state issued ID that would allow her to vote, and thus will likely destroy their case. Notice how I said "likely" since these are liberals afterall and they're not actually arguing facts or reality to begin with.

520 This election is more like 1932 or 1980 than 2004. Read the accounts on Wikipedia--it's a very interesting read.

Hoover and Obama are more alike in their approach to economic policy in the face of financial crises than is talked about. The New Dealers even credited Hoover is private with the design of much of what they later implemented while savaging him in public. Also, Hoover tried to paint Roosevelt as "too radical" for the times.

Hoover's defeat was the end of the Progressive Era. Obama's likely defeat is the end of the New Progressive Era. If Americans behave as I think they will, it will also be the beginning of the end of the Entitlement Era, or whatever historians 100 years from now will call the era from about 1965 to 2016.

won't this type of identification almost certainly eventually happen? why do so many people see embedded electronic ID as intrinsically evil?

it's kind of the same situation with a "one-world government". isn't that the next step in the progression from roaming tribes to cities to city-states to nation-states to continental unions? sure, we wouldn't want the current people in charge of the smaller governments to be in charge of a one-world government...but then we really don't want them to be in charge of the smaller governments, either!

i guess it just seems inevitable that we'll have embedded electronic ID one day, as well as a sort of centralised world government. i'm not sure how close their horizons are, but it's not unthinkable that in the lives of at least the younger commenters here we might see both the beginnings of a centralised government and some push toward electronic ID!

I do not believe for a minute that the opposition to Voter ID is compassion-based. It's almost 100% pure partisan facilitating of fraud, and the rest is a notion that their clueless voters are more likely to forget their ID, not keep their license valid, etc. It's one of those things like school vouchers/choice that will just run smoothly if we can just get the damn thing passed.

This should make the muslims happy.
The use of so much of that 'muslim blue' color...even on their website...is kinda strange.

That particular shade of blue is considered a 'protection color' in islam.
Which is why you see so much of it...on mosques...as a color for burka's, head coverings...doors and doorways, etc.

Subliminal muslim outreach?
I dunno.
But it creeps me out.

Oh, and for those who don't know....the Moon is a big deal in Islam.
Their calendar is based on the cycles of the moon.
And it's considered a harbinger of things to come...and a symbol of Islam.

He was a mining millionaire before age 40;

He was responsible for feeding the starving Bolsheviks in 1920 after their economy collapsed;

As Secretary of Commerce in the 1920s he expanded government control over business more than anyone before him in collaboration with a bunch of businesses in an embryonic version of crony capitalism;

His regulation of radio in the 1920s served as the predicate of much of our communications regulation of TV, radio, and attempted Internet regulation of today.

568 Nerdygirl, I believe the answer to spiraling health costs is multifaceted. Liability law reform is a biggie. Directing none emergency situations to neighborhood clinics is another. Charging everybody something for the service they receive is another. One thing we eventually could have to deal with is saving you with public dollars above a certain point is simply not in the budget. That's a toughy. You are free to spend as much of your own money to save yourself or granny as you like but spending $10million of public money simply isn't going to happen. Putting everyone on a public program will hasten such hard decisions. Most everything else the government has done to hold down prices is simply rearranging chairs on a sinking ship.

@510



won't this type of identification almost certainly eventually
happen? why do so many people see embedded electronic ID as
intrinsically evil?



it's kind of the same situation with a "one-world government".
isn't that the next step in the progression from roaming tribes to
cities to city-states to nation-states to continental unions? sure, we
wouldn't want the current people in charge of the smaller governments to
be in charge of a one-world government...but then we really don't want
them to be in charge of the smaller governments, either!



i guess it just seems inevitable that we'll have embedded electronic
ID one day, as well as a sort of centralised world government. i'm not
sure how close their horizons are, but it's not unthinkable that in the
lives of at least the younger commenters here we might see both the
beginnings of a centralised government and some push toward electronic
ID!

579 Just as Hoover was the culmination of the Progressive Era, with its belief in the perfectibility of man through governmental influence...

Barack Obama is the culmination of our Politically Correct Era/New Progressive Era where we give members of minority groups positions of responsibility for which they are not qualified in an attempt to make ourselves feel better about past wrongs, as well as the belief that the collective is more important that the individual, and the belief that Americans are willing to sacrifice their individual freedom for the short term benefit of a government that protects them night and day from the inherent risks of life .

One era ended with a dramatic electoral swing. So will another. 2012 is the beginning. 2014 and 2016 will be the culmination.

PS--Herbert Hoover is one of the big reasons blacks switched from Republican to Democrat after 1932. It's an interesting story that isn't widely known. Check out wikipedia.

582 I don't think Obama is actually Muslim, but I think as much as he was religious at all, that was his primary influence when he realized he needed black credibility and joined Reverend Wright's church. There he wedded Black Liberation Theology to the faux Islam he sort of leaned toward, and blended them into his own sort of fake religion.

Obama doesn't worship Allah or Jesus or anyone but Obama. But everyone is religious, even the people who swear they aren't, and that's where he goes I think. I believe Obama has a real sympathy toward Islam.

As a former "apathetic liberal" this is what sped up the distancing from what current-day "liberalism" is -- not "you changed out of fear" accusations, but 9/11 presented the almost perfect enemy of that what used to be "liberal" -- fundamentalist, sexist, etc. fanatics... and thence the left showed their true colors.

When not riffing about Hoover, let's just say I am highly interested in the health care cost issue.

It really boils down to one thing: Medicare is an 800 pound gorilla which has totally distorted the market for health services. The incentives in Medicare for hospitals and providers are perverse--the not so surprising results of almost 60 years of congressional lobbying.

Break Medicare into smaller pieces that need to compete with each other (such as allowing voucher programs as an alternative to traditional Medicare), and costs will come down.

Ryan has this one right.

642 559...Personally, I think part of the left's adoration of islam is that it is a totalitarian political system masquerading as a religion and requires absolute obedience to an insanely large number of arbitrary rules! EXactly Right,Also, the koran is a living document, and followers of islam do not follow the koran so much as follow the crackpot sharia patches slapped on for the last millennium+. Which s not to say that the original wholly koran was any great shakes,just that lefties like the business model WRT the Constitution.

<blockquote>According to the author Matt Bissonnette, he and the other US Navy SEALs
were not fired upon when they approached bin Laden's hideout in Pakistan. The al-Qaeda leader was also not armed as US President Barack Obama's aides had claimed...

Since both the women in the room refused to identify the deceased, one
of the SEALs asked a girl standing outside on the balcony. She replied
that it was Osama bin Laden.
It was then that the commander of the SEALs informed Admiral William
McRaven: "For God and country. I pass Geronimo. . . . Geronimo EKIA."
("Geronimo" was the designated code for bin Laden. "EKIA" means 'enemy
killed in action'.)

uh, nobody here has ever seen me praise any member of the bush clan outside of saying they seem like genuine people and did fairly well as state governors. other than giving them their due in that regards, tho, i haven't been caught making

i *did* say that michelle malkin really isn't that attractive, and i wasn't the only one who said it that night. i'll reiterate what i said here for context: seems like she gets defaulted into those lists just by her star power

@craniac

geez, if only i was intelligent as you are!

keep banging on that keyboard, and maybe you can stop progress from happening.

the idea is definitely *not* to prevent a one-world government, which is obvious inevitable and which, given the proper government (i.e., a limitted one that performed strictly civil functions and allowed the market to dictate the economy), would also be the most efficient form of government imaginable, considering the possibility of aligning the incentives of the nations in a way that best benefits the collective progress of the entire human race.

the idea is to ensure that, when the inevitable happens, the *proper ideas* about limited government and the importance of local governments to attend to local matters are enshrined in some sort of "world constitution" -- it's almost certain to happen at some point, and it's important that the usurpers of liberty and freedom...much like the power-hungry bureaucrats at the un and the ec, who are definitely taking the "political union" idea in the *wrong* direction.

clearly, there isn't yet enough of a philosophical alignment of incentives between the various nations yet to even consider what would currently be a *disastrously* counterproductive top-down compulsion to economically integrate. i just believe that at some point along the timeline of the progress of civilisation of the a human race, we will reach a stage when we put aside our petty national differences and recognise the economic benefit in working together for the betterment of the entire human race.

still, what we do *not* want to do as conservatives is be caught blind-sided by un- and ec-types who have been quietly organising the ascendancy of *their* brand of political trip to Guiding Principle status. we ought to recognise that progress, so help us god, actually *does* happen, and we need to make sure that the next step in political progress is done with an adherence to the conservative principles that made our little nation of upstarts the Greatest Political Experiment in the recorded history of the human race.

i don't understand the controversy...

after all, i don't think anybody here *really* thinks we would be better off with no federal us government and just 50 separate state governments, do they? our centralised federal government -- while it has *certainly* over-stepped its constitutionally imposed boundaries! -- has facilitated a level of economic coördination that simply wouldn't have been possible with 50 different sets of laws and business practices between which to translate!

so what makes me soo~oo dumb and stupid for proposing that the next level of economic coördination -- supposing we maintain the proper level of hands-off civil service that our founding fathers envisioned for our very own federal government -- a level leading to even further facilitation of quick economic progress, will be a one-world government?

~.~

craniac is just mad that there is a pragmatic, thoughtful brand of conservatism that actually *thinks* about things before automatically writing them off as "anti-conservative". it challenges his self-oblivious narrative of being a thoughtful political thinker...ya know, the kind that sits around and uses 5 lines to express the idea that someone with opposing views is just soooooo stupid and dumb and stupid. /rolleyes

Verizon, Droid 2. I didn't ask the others what type of phones they had, but around here, Verizon is the big carrier. One of the bigwigs has a lake house near by, so they really upgraded their 4G around here.
It may be getting pushed to phones based on locations, and since we had the big derecho here a couple of months ago, they may have pushed here first.

Plus we are a swing state, so maybe Obama will try to suspend the elections here.

The only differences being that Muslim Americans post 9/11 are being
treated much more graciously than were Japanese Americans post Pearl

nothing like that of Japanese Americans in 1942.

During the past few days, I've spoken with 3 lefties who are peeing themselves with excitement over The Speech. Not Zero's, but Billy Jeff's. They really believe that when the nation hears the down-homey tones of old Slick,they'll fall madly in love all over again and the Dems will be swept into office. Willie's gonna save the day!
I had to remind the members of the reality based community that Clinton is not running this year.


The amount of "Bill Clinton" involvement dependency has been bothering me for a few days.

Clinton seems to be the one doing the heavy lifting on really tough issues ... like the Economy. I understand that he'll be doing a couple of ads, and making the rounds ...

Is there a "safe" way to derail Bill Clinton? The fact that he was impeached should be enough, but it makes no difference.

Perhaps reminding the public that it is BO, not Slick, that is running for office, will have some effect.

Reminding everyone that the Job of the President is to Lead the Country, not Remain in Campaign Mode, might be the answer.

Maybe replaying the tape of BO's presser, where he hands the mic over to Slick, then walks off to dinner with M'chelle, will get the message across.

He lied about his essential character, which why the sex stuff mattered. It was one of the all-time big 'I told you so' moments when everyone was forced to recall all of the accusations about Clinton's general behavior going into the 92 campaign. Once he was out of office it became cool to admit that Jennifer Flowers, Elizabeth Gracen, and pretty much every consenting adult who said they had sex with Clinton. The only denials maintained were for the rape and harassment accusations.

Amazingly, the left was so in love with him, or so desperate not to derail Hillary, that they've never been able to confront the fact that the opposition told the world exactly who this guy was and they were right.

I still wonder how any female Hillary supporter can have any respect for her after putting up with that for decades. She is either an utter doormat or grossly dishonest about the nature of their marriage. Did they even make it through the honeymoon without Bill nailing some Haitian chick?

You're correct but there's nothing political about it and it's prosecution, not persecution. Barky has made minced meat of the Constitution and various other serious laws tens of times in plain view.

I believe this is correct. Not only doesn't he like Obama, but Obama just gutted one of his biggest legacies (even if at the time he didn't like it) in welfare reform. A second term for Obama means he equals Clinton's term in office. Bill Clinton doesn't have the pathological level of ego that Obama does, but its pretty gargantuan, and I just don't see him wanting to see that happen.

769 @craniac



geez, if only i was intelligent as you are!



keep banging on that keyboard, and maybe you can stop progress from happening.



the idea is definitely *not* to prevent a one-world government,
which is obvious inevitable and which, given the proper government
(i.e., a limitted one that performed strictly civil functions and
allowed the market to dictate the economy), would also be the most
efficient form of government imaginable, considering the possibility of
aligning the incentives of the nations in a way that best benefits the
collective progress of the entire human race.



the idea is to ensure that, when the inevitable happens, the *proper
ideas* about limited government and the importance of local governments
to attend to local matters are enshrined in some sort of "world
constitution" -- it's almost certain to happen at some point, and it's
important that the usurpers of liberty and freedom...much like the
power-hungry bureaucrats at the un and the ec, who are definitely taking
the "political union" idea in the *wrong* direction.



clearly, there isn't yet enough of a philosophical alignment of
incentives between the various nations yet to even consider what would
currently be a *disastrously* counterproductive top-down compulsion to
economically integrate. i just believe that at some point along the
timeline of the progress of civilisation of the a human race, we will
reach a stage when we put aside our petty national differences and
recognise the economic benefit in working together for the betterment of
the entire human race.



still, what we do *not* want to do as conservatives is be caught
blind-sided by un- and ec-types who have been quietly organising the
ascendancy of *their* brand of political trip to Guiding Principle
status. we ought to recognise that progress, so help us god, actually
*does* happen, and we need to make sure that the next step in political
progress is done with an adherence to the conservative principles that
made our little nation of upstarts the Greatest Political Experiment in
the recorded history of the human race.



i don't understand the controversy...



after all, i don't think anybody here *really* thinks we would be
better off with no federal us government and just 50 separate state
governments, do they? our centralised federal government -- while it
has *certainly* over-stepped its constitutionally imposed boundaries! --
has facilitated a level of economic coördination that simply wouldn't
have been possible with 50 different sets of laws and business practices
between which to translate!



so what makes me soo~oo dumb and stupid for proposing that the next
level of economic coördination -- supposing we maintain the proper level
of hands-off civil service that our founding fathers envisioned for our
very own federal government -- a level leading to even further
facilitation of quick economic progress, will be a one-world government?



~.~



craniac is just mad that there is a pragmatic, thoughtful brand of
conservatism that actually *thinks* about things before automatically
writing them off as "anti-conservative". it challenges his
self-oblivious narrative of being a thoughtful political thinker...ya
know, the kind that sits around and uses 5 lines to express the idea
that someone with opposing views is just soooooo stupid and dumb and
stupid. /rolleyes

I have been mortally wounded, I shall not ever recover.
I believe in brevity, that is why I don't post long winded screeds about the positives of big government, and why an efficient government is somehow conservative. Neither one is true. A world government is not inevitable, as a matter of fact, if you look around the world, the opposite seems to be happening. The EU has collapsed, only Germany is keeping it afloat for now. The Soviet Union collapsed on itself. Yugoslavia imploded. Nations in Africa are breaking apart. Bigger governments do not equal better, nor more efficient.

As for a world government being able to control itself. Are you fucking serious? There is no way a government does not start taking more and more power, it is the nature of the beast. Who would have thought 100 years ago that the US government, with its limits on government power, would become a cradle to grave entitlement society? No one would have, but it happened, even the limits were ignored because government always ignores its own rules.
Would we be better off with 50 different governments? Hell yes. States would do what is done around the world, trade agreements. Individual states would be better stewards of their natural resources than someone who live 2000 miles (3218 kilometres for you) away. I would rather my locally elected Governor to make the decision on offshore drilling than Sen Barbara Boxer.
And you should really stop rolling your eyes, when I was little my mom told me that if you sneezed while rolling your eyes, your eyes can gut stuck in opposite directions.

The EU, at least, is defensible as a workable possibility (were it not for the idiocy and totalitarian instincts of the Eurotrash). The UN, however, isn't defensible in any way whatsoever. It cannot even withstand theoretical scrutiny. Only a total idiot would ever think it reasonable to have an empowered, peerless, competitionless entity that everyone belongs to. Anyone with even a passing familiarity with evolutionary theory, capitalist theory, or just plain common sense understands that such an entity is assured of growing in nothing but grotesque and dangerous ways. The UN was merely the emotional reaction from the trauma of WWII and the absolute barbarity of the Euros and Japanese that we had to come face-to-face with that was never intended to be anything serious, as it never could be. It was the WWII analog of the emotional idiocy emerging from WWI that had people call it "The War to End All Wars" .... as if such a thing could ever have existed in reality, save a war that actually destroys everyone and everything. But, these serious traumas lead to such asininity, though the UN was initially constrained by the Cold War which was the post-WWII construct that determined policy. It was after the fall of the USSR and the end of the Cold War that some real idiots of the highest order took the opportunity to actually empower the UN beyond its traditional role of a communications platform and stick to beat Israel with. This was Bush Sr's doing, for the most part and I will never forgive him for his dangerous idiocy. As I said, no one with a brain actually thinks that an empowered, peerless, competitionless entity should even be attempted in reality.

If the Eurotrash had brains and weren't the scum they are then the EU might have been a workable item (allowing the masses of Eurotrash to actually have a voice about it would have been the decent thing to do, of course, but it couldn't live through that so ...). But the UN could never be anything but a fatal malignant tumor. It must be killed (i.e. the US leave) as soon as possible. The fact that so many Americans have been brainwashed into accepting even the ida of the UN is scary. Anyone who promotes it, in any way, is really working against American sovereignty and has no place in our government, at all. He should also be summarily dismissed from public life for being a brain-dead retard.

What the...world government?

No one took a stab at cracking pi?

Fuckers.

But, if anyone is interested, I read a book some years back by a guy named James C. Bennett called The Anglosphere Challenge. In it he describes a loose international system, what he calls a Network Commonwealth. He basically formulates this notion as a way of preserving Anglosphere preeminence in the world but it's a nifty little idea that's sort of a step up from a free trade agreement that uses a sort of commonwealth law to tighten cultural links and more easily settle trade disputes between English Speaking countries.

I'm butchering the idea here. Bennett describes it at some length. It's intriguing, to say the least.

And in case you're wondering, he's coming from the libertarian right. He's not plugging some lefty New World Order circle jerk.

Anywho, also goes into a fair amount of history so the book has that going for it even if you object to the rest.

Used copies available on Amazon for cheap.

'756 For the uninformed, federalism and conservatism aren't about obliterating the federal government, only restraining it to its proper size and constitutional scope. Don't care for those limits? That's OK there's a system to address that concern called "amending the constitution."

Sure, but none of that is governing.

If we had to make a true world government for some reason, nothing in the UN would be useful for the purpose. They don't DO anything. Even the crummiest nation provides some infastructure, enforces laws, provides some kind of defense or policing.

Tentacles have been worked hard all day and put away wet.....but the BH and I are nearly ready for my aunt to drop in without too much embarrassment. Earlier, the BH had a project from her employer in NC that was going to keep her away for weeks.....so I started some construction things that would take a while. Her stuff ended up cancelled, so I had to roll-up a boatload of stuff in a big hurry so that we don't have to explain why we live in a half-demolished house.

I visited their place in Tennessee a couple of times. When they bought it, there was a small rusty shed at some distance from their home. The last time I visited, there was a new-looking shed about 100 feet closer......turns out that it's the same shed. My uncle had moved it to a more reasonable distance to keep lawnmowers and such.....and, because it was ugly, when he moved it he turned it inside-out.




He's been doing that sort of thing as long as I've been able to observe it. Give him three options, and he'll pick number 4 -- that is obviously better -- unless he decides to go with option 5.

And part of me enjoys not having a cable/satellite bill. But part of me wants to have a place that is more amenable to hosting parties than what currently exists and it's hard to do that without some sort of TV. But part of me thinks that I have to get a really good TV system if I'm going to make that the draw for a party and that level of a system is out of my budget right now. Part of me worries about what it says about me that I have to essentially bribe people to come over to my house with a nice TV system. And part of me wonders if that is normal anyway, if that is how everybody operates anyway so it's no big deal. And part of me knows that along with the TV system I have to get some furniture for the TV room (right now it is empty) so maybe I should get the furniture first and then the TV and not the other way around. And then part of me wonders why I am making this such a big drama-filled deal.

So there you go, there's the thought process behind my TV decision.

Parties?
Two words: Disco Ball.
I got nothin'.
I don't do parties myself. See, I'm one of them introverts. I like people in measured quantities. Having a bunch of people infesting my home drives me up a freakin' wall. Eventually I want to stamp them out like roaches, slapping them with my shoes.

But if you want something just for decor...dude...pawn shop. Any ole POS'll do ya.

I don't know what to do. Part of me wants a TV. But part of me fears
that getting a TV means that I will just waste more time instead of
doing useful things. And part of me enjoys not having a cable/satellite
bill. But part of me wants to have a place that is more amenable to
hosting parties than what currently exists and it's hard to do that
without some sort of TV. But part of me thinks that I have to get a
really good TV system if I'm going to make that the draw for a party and
that level of a system is out of my budget right now. Part of me
worries about what it says about me that I have to essentially bribe
people to come over to my house with a nice TV system. And part of me
wonders if that is normal anyway, if that is how everybody operates
anyway so it's no big deal. And part of me knows that along with the TV

930 We don't often have parties as such, but we frequently host stuff like board-meetings of our tropical-fish-fan club. What impresses them?



1. Variety in beverages.
2. We typically fire up the BBQ and have chicken, snacks, salad, and goodies.....
3. We have chairs for everyone and tours around our home's oddities (fish geeks love to see stuff like carnivorous plant collections or waterlilies -- it allows them to feel more mainstream than someone else).



You'd do better to get a 2nd fridge in the garage and a nice gas grill.

936 As far as "catering" parties at your house.....the big secret is baggies. Everything going on the grill is prepped the day before and marinates in ziplocs. All the platters come down from storage, all the plates and silverware are set up.....if you are chopping something on the day of your event, you already blew it.

With a second fridge, we can have a large variety of beverages available for our guests -- homebrew and microbrew beers, premium sodas (lots of nice root beers out there), still and fizzy waters. We seldom have a call for wine and never for liquor....but that might be regional.

1. Sectional just screams "'70's!"

2. Individual furniture can be rearranged and will be more charming. For example, if you have a recliner, three dining-room chairs, a rocker, and a loveseat facing a TV, you have increased the interest and dynamism of the situation as compared to a sectional.

It's kind of a long and wandering story....and not really something I can organize well at 1:13 in the morning. But I'll try for a Reader's Digest version.

When you start out with fish, it's kind of like raising sheep.....you do this, and they do that. But when you start dealing with cichlids, it's like raising sheepdogs -- they react; they have memories; they'll ignore you if you come into a room and move to a bookcase -- they'll line up at the surface and look eager if you go to a different bookcase where fish food is kept; they'll raise families and ignore you if you clean....but bite you if you point at their nest. They watch you.

On the flip side, you need not jump through the hoops of saltwater-fish enthusiasts. Cichlids are relatively hardy (some live in waters of the US), not fussy about water conditions, and generally resistant to disease. They are extremely diverse (discus and angelfish are cichlids, as well as mbuna and utaka).

And with a community of like-minded nutcases, you can sell and swap your excess fish quite readily.

Which is why you see so much of it...on mosques...as a color for burka's, head coverings...doors and doorways, etc.

Correct order is:

6 - 1 x 0 + 2 / 2 = 6 - (1 x 0) + 2 / 2 =

6 - 0+ 2/2 =

6 - 0 + (2/2) = 6 - 0 + 1 = 7

Posted by: Hrothgar (Dagny Aficionado ) at September 03, 2012 07:56 AM (Cnqmv)

986 DOH! I got that backwards. Parenthesis, exponents, multiply, divide, add, subtract. So 6 - 1 x 0 + 2 / 2 = becomes 6-(1x0)+(2/2) = 6-0+1 = 7, just like nerdygirl and Ohio Dan said. I abase myself in shame.

Beerflew out my nose from laughing so hard (all over the keyboard...like no else reads this forum with a brew in hand?).
