Now Here's Some Stupid Girl Saying What I Just Said

I did not know -- swearsies -- that Mollie Hemingway had covered this earlier, contrasting the problems faced by the upper-middle-class American white girls who make up the ranks of the Post-Feminist left with the problems faced by girls in other, harder parts of the world.

I seem to notice the Post-Feminists promote the sillier sorts of stories and not only don't discuss the harsher, more important stories, but take active steps to suppress discussion of them.

1 Women bitch and moan about not being treated as equals. And then when they are treated as equals, they bitch that men are pigs and have no manners, and don't know how to treat a lady.

The only thing worse than not getting what you want is getting exactly what you want.

17 I was stopped on the street maybe a year ago by someone asking my to sign a petition.... and donate $... to an organization to stop bullying of gays. I responded that if that is the big issues for gays, being bullied, then gays no longer have any big issues... unlike those countries where being gay is a capital offense. I then suggested maybe she switch from fighting bullying to fighting against hanging gays.

I don't think she made the switch.

You want an actual chain of micro aggressions leading to true aggressions?

Woman says something that is discomforting to Western Leftists.

Western Leftists demand that said woman no longer speak in civilized society.

The less civilized portions of the world observe this and conclude that said woman will not receive the full protections of civilized society.

Woman must live in constant fear of being actually killed for real.

Upper-middle-class American white girls just loved Sex and the City. Loved. It.

They made a movie about shoes, and ugly bridal attire, and chasing down Mr. Right, and everyone Loved. It.

Then they took it to another level and made a second movie which was set in the Middle East. It showed in usual SATC style the realities of women who live there. It drew contrasts between the freedoms of American women and those under the thumbs of their government and their men (but I repeat myself).

Preachy! Not as much fun! Gahhhh!

Yep.... when you decide you are part of some group which is discriminated against, when there IS no real discrimination...

You begin to blame everything on being a member of that group... and when your life does not get better (because instead of solving the problem, you continue on the same path), it leads to despair... because you cannot defeat an enemy that does not exist...

You cannot WIN a fight against an imaginary opponent.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali: Western Feminists Life Safe, Soft Decadent Lives, and Focus on the Trivial at the Expense of the Profoundly Important

My words, not hers, but that's her point.

"The white man is held to a moral standard that, in the West, men [who have immigrated] from other cultures are not held to," she told the Herald. ''If a white man sold his daughter into marriage, most people would be appalled and there'd be an outrage in any national context in any country in the West. But when it's a man from Pakistan or Somalia or Yemen or India, then what you see is this: 'Oh yes, but …'"

...

Hirsi Ali, who lives in the US, believes women in developed countries are distracted by issues like work-life balance when they should focus on big-picture issues, such as women's safety. She says it is the responsibility of Western feminists to push these issues onto the public agenda - but only if the movement returns to its original values.

This is a several-weeks-old story, but I'm revisiting it on my way to discussing a newer story.

The letter demanding that Hirsi Ali be dis-invited from speaking at Brandeis was, get this, largely signed by women in the Women and Gender Studies program, and more-or-less-explicitly stated that Ali's focus on genuine repression of women took the focus off the trivial microagressions they prefer to gab about.

The Brandeis professors who demanded that Ayaan Hirsi Ali be "immediately" dis-invited wrote that "we are filled with shame at the suggestion that (Hirsi Ali's) above-quoted sentiments express Brandeis's values." The professors also castigated Hirsi Ali for her "core belief of the cultural backwardness of non-western peoples" and for her suggestion that "violence toward girls and women is particular to Islam." The professors note that such a view "obscure(s) such violence in our midst among non-Muslims, including on our own campus."

Well, they're not practicing forced clitorectomies at Brandeis, nor are they practicing forced marriage (which is essentially family-arranged rape for life), so I take their complaint to mean this:

Hirsi Ali's own story of genuine oppression, and her agitation about important, fundamental rights of, and dignities owed, to women, makes our own neurotic prattlings seem rather silly and fluffy by comparison.

One of the most important ideas in Post-Feminist philosophy (it's post-feminist now; this is just a degenerate, decadent, silly thing) is the concept of "rape culture."

"Rape culture" is crucial because it is the means by which the trivial is transmogrified into the profound. The fact that a man might commit a "microaggression" against a woman by opening the door for her is, in a series of logical steps, rapidly connected to something serious -- rape -- and thus invested with seriousness itself.

Even though it is by no means serious itself.

But the quick silly skipping "logical" steps go like this:

1. A man commits a "microaggression" against a woman by holding a door open for her, "Otherizing" her and suggesting she is infantile and unable to accomplish small tasks on her own.

2. This is a microaggressive power play which reifies the assumptions of the Patriarchy, about woman's role in society as essentially that of Object or Ornament even Trade Good.

3. This dehumanization of women -- the conscious microaggressive stripping of dignity, agency, and autonomy from women -- makes it more easy for a member of the Patriarchy to treat them as inhuman things.

4. This increases the likelihood of rape and in fact reinforces a "rape culture."

That's the reasoning, such as it is, and this reasoning is assumed (rarely spelled out for the listener) whenever a Post-Feminist attempts to invest some absolutely trivial, bubble-headed cultural complaint (such as Tina Fey's character on 30 Rock not being a real feminist) with some imaginary weightiness.

No one can argue that rape isn't a crime of great weight, and so whenever a Post-Feminist senses she's saying something so absurd and trivial it may make her look absurd and trivial, she knows to go through the "Rape Culture" Algorithm to insist that what she's saying isn't absurd and trivial at all, but Very, Very Important.

But of course I can play the same game with any subject and connect it to rape, murder, or Hitler, as you like.

I can connect, if I wanted, a movie I didn't like to Hitler in four steps or fewer; that would not make my whining about The Hobbit 2 any less trivial or any more "political." (But seriously, it was the worst movie I've seen in years. I literally said aloud, "I hate this f***ing movie" about halfway through. I think it might be worst than the Holocaust, but I'm not sure.)

This is a silly game, indulged by silly people.

Hirsi Ali's story is a threat to this version of Post-Feminist trivial pursuits, as that letter readily admits. Hirsi Ali is speaking of real rape -- not "rape culture" -- and real, physical aggressions, clitorectomies, daylight murders, all of which have the inevitable effect of making the pet obsessions of the Brandeis Women and Gender Studies Department seem rather more ridiculous than they already might appear.

Charles C.W. Cooke discussed this some weeks back:

Prepossessed as he was with the all-encompassing wars of his era, George Orwell complained that political language was “designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.” Unlike Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the culture warriors of America’s pampered campuses are unlikely to be dealing in murder or in warfare or, for that matter, in anything of much consequence at all. Nevertheless, they enjoy playing assassin, painting glowing targets onto the backs of any idea that threatens their power and, one by one, seeking the bullseyes.

So, here's my point. Slate is a magazine much-devoted to the trivial and silly -- until recently, they were the proud (?) publisher of the mindthoughts of Matt Yglesias, now of Chuckleheadz.com -- and never is Slate more trivial and silly than its embarrassing, woman-shaming "XX Factor" column, aka "Politicz for Grrls."

And so here's he latest masterpiece from the XX Factor brain trust.

It comes -- appropriately enough -- from a junior in high school.

This is what Post-Feminists would rather talk about than Ayaan Hirsi Ali's first-hand encounters with real-world oppression of women.

McDonald's Gave Me the “Girl's Toy” With My Happy Meal. So I Went to the CEO.

By Antonia Ayres-Brown

We found that 92.9 percent of the time, the store simply gave each child the toy that McDonald’s had designated for that child’s gender.


In the fall of 2008, when I was 11 years old, I wrote to the CEO of McDonald’s and asked him to change the way his stores sold Happy Meals. I expressed my frustration that McDonald’s always asked if my family preferred a “girl toy” or a “boy toy” when we ordered a Happy Meal at the drive-through. My letter asked if it would be legal for McDonald’s “to ask at a job interview whether someone wanted a man’s job or a woman’s job?”

A few weeks later, I received a short response from a McDonald’s customer satisfaction representative claiming that McDonald’s doesn’t train their employees to ask whether Happy Meal customers want boys’ or girls’ toys, and my experiences were not the norm.

This response was unsatisfying, so I began visiting more than a dozen local McDonald’s locations with my father to collect data. Ultimately, we brought a complaint to the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities against McDonald’s for discriminating on the basis of sex. Despite our evidence showing that, in our test, McDonald’s employees described the toys in gendered terms more than 79 percent of the time, the commission dismissed our allegations as “absurd” and solely for the purposes of “titilation [sic] and sociological experimentation.”All in all, this was a pretty humiliating defeat.

When a Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities tells you you're being absurd, you're probably doing something wrong.

But I still couldn’t let it go.... So this past summer, we decided to test this assertion.

In a series of 30 visits, we sent boys and girls, ages 7-11, into 15 McDonald’s stores to independently order a Happy Meal at the counter. We found that 92.9 percent of the time, the store, without asking, simply gave each child the toy that McDonald’s had designated for that child’s gender...

In the most egregious instance, a McDonald’s employee asked a girl, “Would you like the girl's toy?” The girl responded, “No, could I have the boy's toy?” When the girl opened the container a moment later, she learned that notwithstanding her explicit request, a McDonald’s employee had given her the girl’s toy. This girl went back to the counter with the unopened toy and requested, “May I have a boy's toy, please?” The same McDonald’s employee replied, “There are only girl's toys.” We then sent an adult male into the store who immediately was given a boy’s toy.

"The most egregious incident" involving cisnormative distribution of Happy Meal toys, she means. I suppose, within that particular set, this might indeed be "the most egregious incident."

Oh by the way, Ayaan Hirsi Ali is not permitted to discuss her own experiences of genital mutilation and attempted forced marriage because that might "distract" from the important agenda items being pushed by Post-Feminists.

I will say one thing for this Junior Member of the Women and Gender Studies Social Justice Committee -- she is a more lucid writer than Matt Yglesias, and her piece actually contains information.

Not important information, but still, better than Yglesias.

By the way...

The precocious inquiry yielded a series of communications between Ayres-Brown and the fast-food chain. It also led to some serious data collecting by the girl and her dad Ian Ayres — who is, unsurprisingly, a heavy-hitting Yale law professor and economist who has previously collaborated with his daughter on research — about McDonald’s employees and the Happy Meal gender bias.

Sounds like maybe someone is acting Paternalistically in helping someone get their Ivy League application essay together.

Yay feminism, I guess...?

We may strive to walk the path but we understand due to His Godhead that he has some advantages on the path.

It's just social justice by another name.

If you're in the female class, you're in the "raped" class.

If you're in the male class, you're in the "raper" class.

(If you're in the fencing class, you're in the "rapier" class.)

I thought- how could someone recommend I see this obviously under qualified person. Based on what- their common gender and a cocktail conversation.

It's a bit ridiculous to say you are "discriminated against" because of your gender. Then attempt to gain a job for which you are clearly unqualified, which you fail at because you are...not qualified. Then use that as evidence there is discrimination. This of course, ended badly.

Certain groups in society have created an entire grievance subculture. They are taught this contra-intellectual philosophy and then go our into the world with more grievances to keep it alive. They mostly lack skills to do anything and blame their personal failure on everyone else. Meanwhile, they never actual tried to make a meaningful contribution and generally abhor hard work.

By the way, I am not just picking on Women s Study. There are probably a hundred other that contribute to the grievance subculture.

128 Well, they're not practicing forced clitorectomies at Brandeis, nor are they practicing forced marriage (which is essentially family-arranged rape for life), so I take their complaint to mean this:

I've heard of two kinds of arranged marriages: the kind where two families arrange for the marriage of their children. That is, both the bride and the groom are children, and the marriage doesn't take place right away, but is being planned for the future. The other kind is the one where one family arranges for their young daughter to be married to an older man. Many times, though not always, I don't think, the young girl's wishes will not be considered. The family makes the decision and the good daughter is expected to do her part.

"Rape for life" is a fair description of the 2nd kind, but what of the first? If two children are pushed into an arranged marriage, is one a rapist and the other a victim?

I don't know if it is the case that the 2 children kind is just something out of the past. In the parts of the world where this kind of thing is still going on, is it almost always the case where the male is an adult buying himself a bride, or is it the case that the 2 children variety is frequently happening?

More than once I got the dirty look for asking, "Fine, but what does that actually mean?" when they made stuff up and applied it whole hog.


Then the same thing happened in my art history classes. We would look at a piece of art, and the prof would make stuff up about it, and be considered oh-so-intellectual. Hell, my kid makes up more interesting stories while playing with the toys in his bathtub.

186 In addition, the people who make these complaints about the patriarchy of the early Christian church don't even know the history-that women flocked to Christianity because it more egalitarian than the religions around it. That's why Roman writers referred to disparagingly to Christianity as a religion "only for for slaves and women.

And then of course when you talk about Paul speaking about how a husband is to love his wife as Christ loved the church and gave his life for her, they're gobbsmacked. Yeah, let's compare the early christians church or even modern Evangelicalism to Islam, Dolts.

My pet theory on why a LOT of people are unhappy?

We have Genetic programming... whether from God or evolution, its there.

When we are told that our base feelings are BED... Are EVIL.... are Wrong... it causes conflict and stress... which causes unhappiness.

By Acknowledging those feelings as natural... but NOT necessarily ACTING on them... we lessen that stress.

Because the truth is we cannot control our Feelings.... but we CAN and should control our Actions.

Thus... Men and Women ARE different... but I will do my best to treat Women as equals...

Thus... although Gay mannerisms give me the willies... and I have a true instant dislike for Flaming homosexuals... I won't try to LIKE them... but I will treat them with respect...

Realizing this has made my life a whole lot more pleasant...

I was talking to a young lady, colleague of mine and she was telling a story about someone she knew who worked in a corporate job and that the men who were this woman's co-workers treated her like shit - not open doors or be for lack of a better word "chauvinists" (in the positive sense) because, hey, you wanted to be treated equally.

jokey cowboy voice to some humorless scrunt, who proceeded to read me

I still open doors for women, but have never been dressed down over it.

This is most likely due to the fact that in most public spaces, my presentation is on the intimidating side, due to physical build, facial expression, facial hair and choice of clothing."Leave me the hell alone or else" is the general air I strive for.

They hence tend to scurry past quickly without saying anything at all.

She was never married but she was beloved by friends and family and people in the church. She had what I called the ministry of little notes because she was sending out birthday cards and anniversary notes 10 years after I had left.

You want an actual chain of micro aggressions leading to true aggressions?

Woman says something that is discomforting to Western Leftists.

Western Leftists demand that said woman no longer speak in civilized society.

The less civilized portions of the world observe this and conclude that said woman will not receive the full protections of civilized society.

I don't suppose the possibility exists that the man is just being polite, doing what gentlemen do out of courtesy...if the man were holding the door for another man would that be considered a 'microagression'? If so, what should the response be?

Incredible: Group Objects to Mentioning "Islam" or "Jihad" in Film Explaining 9/11 To Be Shown at the 9/11 Museum

The future belongs to those who control the past.

AllahPundit doesn't think this group will win out in its Outrage Trolling Initiative. Too many leftists in good standing would have to own up to their own Politically Incorrect mentions of Islam and Jihad in connection to 9/11 were this to become the New Stupid Standard of Socially-Approved Ignorance.

In fact, Brian Williams, face of the Democratic Communications Unit called "NBC Nightly News," narrates the film and speaks the Forbidden Words himself.

I think this is more serious than he does, maybe.

The other day I was talking about the claim often made about Social Censorship -- that it's only "censorship" if the government does it.

Well, that's not true. It's true that the First Amendment only restrains the government, but the spirit of the First Amendment could and should restrain everyone.

Whenever someone wants to use social or economic coercion to shut someone up -- defeating them not with better ideas, but better political mobilization and better utilization of levers of coercion -- they should ask if they're acting as friends or enemies of free expression.

But that wasn't my point. My point is that politics is just downstream of culture.

And if the culture supports punishing people like Brendan Eich for committing a Thoughtcrime, then it will not be terribly long until our government does as well.

If the public demands censorship by mob justice, the government -- which is not a principled institution, but a favor-for-favor system of legal quid pro quos -- will eventually see the benefit of censorship by mob as well.

Which is why I find this current folly more worrisome than AllahPundit. He may be right that this attempt at rewriting history For Social Justice will fail, as it's simply too ludicrous to win the day.

But even if it doesn't win the day, it is apparently now a proposition that People Must Take Seriously.

People are not expected, I guess, to seriously entertain the proposition that the government should rewrite history in response to a particular pressure-constituency's demands that history be rewritten.

Perhaps history won't be rewritten here.

But how scary is it that we'll take a vote on it, and that vote will probably be pretty close?

A people gets the government they deserve. And as the American people become stupider, more juvenile, more mob-like, and more hostile to not just free thought but virtually any sort of thought at all, we will, ultimately, get just the sort of government a Majority of Imbeciles and Lunatics demand.

Counterpoint:

I don't see how Muslims could have pulled off a controlled demolition like that in addition to controlling the video feeds news services were using to make it appear the targets were hit by planes.

Sounds like the museum is in the wrong here.

"We continue to posit that the video may very well leave viewers with the impression that all Muslims bear some collective guilt or responsibility for the actions of al-Qaida, or even misinterpret its content to justify bigotry or even violence toward Muslims or those perceived to be Muslim (e.g., Sikhs)," the clergy members wrote.

The signers included Peter B. Gudaitis, chief executive of New York Disaster Interfaith Services, and the Rev. Chloe Breyer, executive director of the Interfaith Center of New York.

39 I'm not so sure it will fail. Muslims hold the current gold medal in the Oppression Olympics; even the Gaystapo holds the silver next to them. White liberals who like to play make-believe that they're "champions of oppressed minorities" by being positive racists (let's of course forget the troublesome fact that Islam is a religion, not a race) are going to have their hands tied.

[F]or Mr. Elazabawy, and many other Muslims, the words “Islamic” and “Islamist” are equally inappropriate to apply to Al Qaeda, and the word “jihad” refers to a positive struggle against evil, the opposite of how they view the terrorist attacks.

Mr. Elazbawy should be mad at Al Qaeda, then, for saying it is bringing Jihad to the infidels on behalf of Islam. Cuz if that's wrong it's cultural appropriation.

But he knew if he touched her he was going to go to jail.

... because Hadji does not pay retail is the why of the matter .. wait, this microphone? It is on? Yes?

And, so.

Hello! It is I, Hadji the Muslim Comic. Hadji flew all the way in from London and did not manage to hit any buildings. But Hadji's arms, they are tired.

So, Hadji has decided to offer a comedy tour back to the land of Islam. Hadji provide the yucks, the infidels provide the bucks. It will be as magnificent.

The zephyrs carressing the cheeks, the sound of laughter on the breezes, the scent of camels wafting upon the nostrils. What is not to love? Is Hadji right or Hadji right? Hadji. He is right.

And so, send Hadji money care of the AoSHQ for The Comedy Jihad and all will be well. Details are to follow. Here. Hadji give you a taste:

Hadji will take you to visit the Red Line of President Obama. Hadji include the 2nd Red Line for free. But wait! Hadji say

Hadji will include the third and the fourth Red Lines all for one low, low price.

Hadji also will take you to the parts of the Holy Land that are disputed by the Jews and my brothers in Palestine.

The parts owned by the Jews are green, in case you will wonder. There is a joke in there somewhere, but Hadji has not found it yet.

But Hadji leaves you with a hah-hah to make the day less blah:

What is black and white and red all over?
The map of Syria in the White House Situation Room.

Too topical? What is black and white and red all over and has trouble getting through the revolving door? The map of Syria in the White House Situation Room being carried through the door that revolves.

Thank you thank you thank you

Remember, pay early and pay often to the AoSHQ and place extra care for the waitresses in the form of tips.

We should have bombed what little they had and killed their leadership and promised to do it again if they so much as rolled their eyes at us. It would have been cheaper by the factor of 10,000 and we would have lost very few American lives. Like I said.... some hearts and minds aren't worth winning.

228 Do Swedish muslim men rape Swedish non-muslim women at a higher rate than, say, American black men rape American white women?

There's a huge disparity in interracial rape in America, black men commit inter-racial rape at rates orders of magnitudes above non-blacks, but that's basically considered an unThought and even discussing the problem is enough to be labelled a racist and a bigot.

Black men have higher rates of all violent inter-racial crime, but the inter-racial rape disparity is even higher than the inter-racial assault and murder disparity.

The notices – stealthily delivered in the dead of night by members of NYU’s Students for Justice in Palestine – warned students at the Palladium residence hall that their suites were scheduled for demolition.
“If you do not vacate the premise by midnight on 25 April, 2014 we reserve the right to destroy all remaining belongings. We cannot be held responsible for property or persons remaining inside the premises,” the notices read, according to a blog in The Times of Israel by NYU student Laura Adkins, vice president of the school’s pro-Israel advocacy group, TorchPAC,

Senate probe: Ex-DHS watchdog altered reports as favor to senior officials http://fxn.ws/1gUbCuh @JuddBerger


The top watchdog for the Department of Homeland Security altered and delayed investigations at the request of senior administration officials, compromising his independent role as an inspector general, according to a new report from a Senate oversight panel.

Charles K. Edwards, who served as acting DHS inspector general from 2011 through 2013, routinely shared drinks and dinner with department leaders and gave them inside information about the timing and findings of investigations, according to the report from an oversight panel of the Homeland Security and Government Operations Committee.


A year-long bipartisan investigation by the panel also found that Edwards improperly relied on the advice of top political advisers to then-Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and acquiesced to their suggestions about the wording and timing of three separate reports.

..

Edwards’s actions occurred while he was seeking President Obama’s nomination to be the permanent inspector general overseeing DHS, the third-largest government agency, with a $39 billion budget and more than 225,000 employees.

But hitting a city that's expected to be hit is not in the real spirit of terrorism. To really terrorize with a nuclear bomb would be to hit a city in the heartland, like Des Moines, or *gulp* Oklahoma City. A city like San Antonio or Denver would also have a more terrorizing impact.

290 And I am a bit unclear why liberal-regressives are in the tank for Jihadists or Radical Islamists- you have to wonder what there is to gain?

Is it they are co-conspirators in our republic's destruction and the coalition may be hurt by a mere mention of their demonstrably evil behavior?

After all- we are not talking about all Muslims. One has to believe there are some who do not adhere to this destructive mentality. I can't tell of any instance where they have collectively fought back against the kind of behavior we see in these Jihadis. But one has to believe it exists- right?

And yet the secular west coddles the evil fucks thinking that if they suck up enough, they'll escape that fate.

310 But hitting a city that's expected to be hit is not in the real spirit of terrorism. To really terrorize with a nuclear bomb would be to hit a city in the heartland, like Des Moines, or *gulp* Oklahoma City. A city like San Antonio or Denver would also have a more terrorizing impact.

I remember right after the OKC bombing, people kept asking "why here". Well, I'll tell you why. No one was expecting it.

***

Back when I had a blog (Devine Innebitchin', now defunct) I wrote a post called "Think Small" andput forth that the only preventing the bastards from truly creating havoc here is their own egos.

They want BIG and SPLASHY and to make names for themselves. Someday the true believers, the ones who are in it for real, will figure this out and launch an attack in a Midwest mall, or attack an elementary school in BFE Alabama, or launch a midnight raid through the homes of some small town.

When folks can no longer shop, or send their kids to school, or lay their heads down at night for fear of being attacked, THEN there will be terror.

315 Marcus T, the Progressive-Socialists think of Radical Islam as their pet stalking horse to get their way. Both share a belief that modern Western Civilization that empowers so many people with such high standards of living is wrong, they both seek a system with them on top of a mountain of serfs or slaves.

The Iranian socialist intelligentsia got in bed with the Ayatollah to overthrow their common enemy - the Shah. Once the Ayatollah was in power, many of those same socialists ended up against the wall.

This is fact, but socialists are good at deluding themselves. So once again upon the wheel they are trapped by their ego. And the rest of us are held hostage to two sets of madmen.

They're afraid.

Look, we post pretty much unabashed here. Ace gives us a crap ton of leeway and lets us play in the sandbox. The result is that we do actually play well together. Internal senses of right or wrong come into play and there's an overarching idea of integrity and honesty.

In the real world, if you do that? You get fired. I speak from first hand experience. I have this problem of having no filter so, when I see BS, I call BS, and add to that the idea that I don't respect authority unless you've earned it. Very bad combination. But: honesty.

People on the street are rarely honest. They put forth a face that they think is acceptable to the majority. I like honest people, be they assholes or angels, I respect it.

Man Reveals Secret of Success: Do Nothing But Drink, Party, and Bicep Curls, Then Get Into a Pointless Barfight Where You're Conked on the Head From Behind, and You Too May Become a Mathematical Intuitive Genius

So, supposedly, this guy is one of only 40 -- forty! -- people in the entire world with "acquired savant syndrome," in which one suddenly gains a savant-like effortless, innate skill at art, math, or science after an brain injury or brain disease.

He became a mathematical savant -- after previously showing no talent or interest in any higher-thinking pursuit -- after suffering a "profound concussion" in a barfight.

“If it could happen to me, it could happen to anyone," he says in his new book, thus promising readers a surefire pathway to success -- careless living and drunken brawls.

So guys, go out there, get a load on, start throwing elbows and ethnic slurs, and maybe change the world.

And bring your protractor and compass -- you might need them later.


Padgett’s world is bursting with mathematical patterns. He is one of a few people in the world who can draw approximations of fractals, the repeating geometric patterns that are building blocks of everything in the known universe, by hand. Tree leaves outside his window are evidence of Pythagoras’ theorem. The arc that light makes when it bounces off his car proves the power of pi.

He sees the parts that make up the whole. And his world is never boring, never without amazement. Even his dreams are made up of geometry.

...

Flash back 12 years: Padgett had dropped out of Tacoma (Wash.) Community College, and was a self-described “goof” with zero interest in academics, let alone math. The only time he dealt in numbers was to track the hours until his shift ended at his father’s furniture store, tally up his bar tab, or count bicep curls at the gym.
With his mullet, leather vest open to a bare chest, and skintight pants, he was more like a high-school student stuck in the 1980s — even though it was 2002, and he was a 31-year-old with a daughter.

He would race his buddies in a freshly painted red Camaro. His life was one adrenaline rush after another: cliff-jumping, sky-diving, bar-hopping. He was the “life of the party.” The guy who would funnel a beer before going out and would slip a bottle of Southern Comfort in his jacket pocket to avoid paying $6 for mixed drinks.

...

Party time came to end the night of Friday, Sept. 13, 2002, at a karaoke bar near his home. There, two men attacked him from behind, punching him in the back of the head, knocking him unconscious.

...

The next morning, while running the water in the bathroom, he noticed “lines emanating out perpendicularly from the flow. At first, I was startled, and worried for myself, but it was so beautiful that I just stood in my slippers and stared.”

...

Days went by, but the visuals remained.

...

During one of his meditations, he came to the conclusion that “circles don’t exist.”

“It was like a bomb went off in my mind. In a matter of minutes, I was no longer just a receiver of geometric imagery or a researcher; I was a theorist,” he writes.

It's pretty neat, and while I've excerpted quite a bit, there's more of his story -- essentially a superhero story, when you think about it, as he acquires Strange New Powers without any satisfying rational explanation for it -- at the link.

You should know that he wasn't entirely unprepared for sudden genius. He had always scored high on IQ tests, though he never had any interest in academics or doing much besides getting his liquor on and getting his weenie squeezed.

So, you know: A hero for us all.

When they make the movie, "Circles don't exist, baby," will be his pick-up line.

40 he approximated the area of a circle by drawing 270 teeny-tiny pie-slice triangles within it. He knew the formula (I guess) for area of a triangle, and so he could use that to figure the area of the circle (approximately), and so approximate pi.

I'm not sure that's really "genius" though. I mean, it's certainly a way to do it.

All calculus courses begin with the "area under the curve" problem and the approximation of it by drawing a series of ever-thinner rectangles under the curve.

But I don't see how it's "genius." Especially because you learn that trick the first day of calc.

Clooney was in Vegas to promote some tequila he is going to try and hawk.He was sitting at a table with Wynn, and some other executives when they started talking politics - ruh roh. Wynn called Obama an asshole and Clooney got pissed saying that Obama was his "long time friend" and ended up storming out of the event.

Anyway Wynn later told the LV media that Clooney was drunk and lost control. Wynn said that Clooney's a great guy when he's sober but when he starts to drink you want to arrive late and leave early.

All I can think of is Clooney crying "Leave my boyfriend alone!". Clooney stated that no matter what the politics, the office of the President should be respected.He was defending GWB this way wasn't he????

On a plane.

Otherwise ya gots a sphere.

But here's a head scratcher, a point has no width. So per your definition, the circle is theoretical. So give the point a little width, and you've got an imperfect approximation of a circle.

So a theoretical construct that doesn't exist perfectly in real life. Is it real?

302 Legislation that would require Connecticut education officials to create a special K-12 curriculum about the virtues of organized labor and capitalism took a big step toward becoming reality on Wednesday.

CTPost.com reports the state’s Senate – which is controlled by labor-union friendly Democrats – passed the bill 25-10, after lawmakers engaged in a rollicking 90-minute debate. (It’s worth noting that an amendment requiring the study of the U.S. Constitution was defeated 26-9 during that process.)

The bill now heads to the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives.

If the bill passes both chambers and is signed into law by Democrat Gov. Dan Malloy, “it would order state education officials to develop a (pro-labor and pro-capitalism) curriculum, but would not require its inclusion in local school programs,” CTPost.com reports.

Make no mistake – this is mostly a pro-labor bill. The only reason pro-capitalism lessons are included in the proposed curriculum is because Big Labor’s previous attempts to slip their agenda into Connecticut classrooms have failed. This time, the unionists shrewdly decided to include free market teachings as a sweetener for on-the-fence lawmakers – and that strategy appears to be working.

CT is as fucked up as MASS.

322 So, since every thread after 250 comments is a gun thread, what have people heard about the Taurus PT609 9mm? It would be for concealed carry in my purse, if that makes any difference.

I was also looking at a Smith and Wesson 9mm, but that would be too large for carrying concealed and I only want one handgun to start with.

Taurus shoots just like any other gun (unless you become anully fixated on trigger-pulls, etc.). More than likely if your in a situation that you need the use it, the accuracy won't matter all that much either, since the person you'll be shooting at will probably be no more than 15 - 20 feet away.

Taurus shoots just like any other gun (unless you become anully fixated on trigger-pulls, etc.). More than likely if your in a situation that you need the use it, the accuracy won't matter all that much either, since the person you'll be shooting at will probably be no more than 15 - 20 feet away.

It depends on when/where it was manufactured.

They ran some questionable steel as barrels for many years. Meaning: you'd put 500 rounds down range and the barrel would increasingly deteriorate, possibly leading to a catastrophic misfire.

I'm not a fan, and I'll never purchase one of their guns, but folks have said recently that they increased their QA so they're not as suspect.

I'm old school, grumpy, and set in my ways, so I'll never buy one. In my order of reliability: Sig, HK. Those are what I carry. I have other brands but my P229 has never malfunctioned and I've put about 4K rounds through it and replaced the barrel twice (for maintenance, not for error).

Ride-Along News and the Drive-By Media

Here's the insidious thing about the "Girls Make Less in Allowance Than Boys, #WarOnWomen" story and others like it.

When the media has decided something is Big News, they do a series of related (or barely-related) stories about it. The Media has obviously decided that the #WarOnWomen #FightPayInequality hashtags are Big News (because Obama told them they were).

I'll call these sorts of stories "Ride-Along News." These stories would not be reported, except that they are riding along with a bigger story.

In most cases they're either not stories at all, or they are microstories.

The purpose of these Ride-Along Stories is simply to keep the Big Story, vaguely, in the news, by frequently mentioning the basic theme of it in other contexts. You can't report on the #WarOnWomen #FightPayInequality hashtags when there's no new news; these sorts of Ride-Along micro-stories allow the media to indulge its biases and continue hitting the same themes and pushing the same political line without the effort of actually doing any new reporting on the actual story itself.

And of course which stories get selected for this Ride-Along coverage is shot through with ideological bias and, increasingly, simple partisan bias. The Democrats have decided the #WarOnWomen is one of the few cards they can play this election cycle; the media eagerly snaps to attention, understanding that Orders Have Been Given, and begins looking around for micro-stories to reinforce and propagate the Democrats' fall campaign themes.

Obviously, the media could choose to do Ride-Along reportage of stories that the Republicans are pushing. They could report on the continuing grim state of the economy; they could report on the economy as they would were it the responsibility of a Republican president, offering up heartbreaking slice-of-life stories about individual victims of the Great Recession.

Given that Clive Bundy is in the news, they could do a series of reports on federal land management, and how much land is under federal control, and the tensions this creates with locals, and so on.

Given that GM, while under the ownership of the Obama White House, pumped out a series of defective cars and concealed these defects from the public, the media could have done a series of Ride-Along stories about previous "government-private" partnerships -- like Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Solyndra -- and reported on how all of those worked out for the taxpaying citizen.

But they don't, of course.

The media's idea of "neutrality" is to cover both parties' stated lines, briefly (though with Democrats' lines getting the majority of coverage).

And then they fill up the news with Ride-Along stories reinforcing the Democrats' favored campaign themes, with no coverage at all -- no oxygen, no human interest, no Weird and Wacky stories -- for Republican themes.

Matt Lauer and Natalie Morales will swear on a stack of Bibles that it Just So Happens that this #WarOnGirlsAllowances just happened to become news at the same moment the president was pushing his #WarOnWomensPay campaign theme.

Of course, that's a lie. They chose the story -- a micro-story which isn't even a story; it's a poll by someone we never heard of before ("Junior Achievement"?), typed up by the leftwing Think Progress blog -- because it reinforces their political agenda.

Natalie Morales confesses exactly that in the piece linked below: "So basically, girls are doing more for less. This sounds kind of familiar right?""

Note if they were just casting about for any story on #WarOnWomen, whether it reinforced Democrat campaign themes or undermined them, they could have discussed that much-more rigorous and serious news that even in Pay-Equity-Crazy Sweden, women still work fewer hours, and still work more frequently in part-time jobs, and still favor the occupations imposed on women by the Oppressive Male Patriarchy, the so-called "caring" professions.

That's also an important data point in this alleged American #WarOnWomen, no? That's almost as important on this single poll by "Junior Achievement" on children's allowances, no?

But of course they didn't do that. No, they chose the silly, Buzzfeed-y non-story that not only kept the #WarOnWomen meme in the public consciousness, but also furthered the Democrats' preferred political line on the #WarOnWomen.

That story didn't agree with their Democratic worldview. (Not liberal ideologically, mind you, but straight-up partisan Democratic.)

I guess it's not true that the media will never do Ride Along stories on Republican attack lines. If a Republican attack line becomes powerful, they will of course begin doing Ride-Along stories to undermine it, check it, and refute it.

I trust everyone remembers the gangbusters business the media did in the "Everyone Lies, At Least Sometimes" stories when it became obvious that Bill Clinton had perjured himself under oath and then directly wagged his finger at the American public.

I ask again rhetorically: For how much longer does the childish media insist on maintaining this risible fiction that they are not Democratic propagandists?

And how can it be that an institution allegedly concerned with "reporting the truth" places such a critical importance on an official corporate position requiring lying about their political agenda?


From the Junior Achievement Website:

This survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Poll on behalf of Junior Achievement USA from February 12-24, 2014 among 1,234 youths ages 8-18. This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.

So it's not really a poll.

Gee, I guess Think Progress just forgot to report that, and NBC forgot to look into it.

But this story achieved its purpose: It got the #WarOnWomen story into the mainstream media another day.

It got into the mindspace of a few thousand low-information voters. This factoid will persist in their minds and influence their voting behavior.

That was Think Progress' goal, and that was NBC's goal.

Mission Accomplished.

thanks to @tsrblke.

Update: Commenters are telling me that Junior Achievement is an organization that sends corporate higher-ups to classrooms to, I guess, sell them on the idea of going into business, or excelling in whatever field they choose.

They say it's not partisan at all.

That may be true. And maybe they just did this non-poll as a fun-fact sort of thing.

But the Left has its paid professional meme generators at Think Progress, and they of course promoted the poll, and then NBC -- with apparently no fact-checking whatsoever -- put the Ride-Along News-Like Substitute on the airwaves a single day later.

The transmission from hard-left-wing/paid professional partisan propaganda outfit to the "mainstream" NBC took exactly 24 hours.

As Natalie Morales might say: "That sounds kind of familiar, right?"

25 RCP, on Harry Reid, (D) Criminal

That isn’t the only problematic land deal Reid was involved with at the time. In 2002, he put $10,000 into a pension fund controlled by another friend, Clair Haycock. The payment gave Reid a sizable parcel of land in Bullhead City, Ariz. According to the Los Angeles Times, Reid purchased the land for one-tenth of its estimated value (and one-fortieth of what it had sold for a decade earlier). Two actions created suspicion afterward. First, Reid sponsored an $18 million earmark for a bridge that would connect Laughlin, Nev., and Bullhead City. This bridge would likely increase property values in the area. Reid also introduced legislation that would benefit Haycock’s lubricant company. Reid aides denied that his support for the earmark or lubricant dealer bill was related to the land purchase. By 2011, Reid’s initial $10,000 investment was valued at between $250,000 and $500,000. The property did not appear in his 2012 disclosure.

While some of Reid’s most lucrative deals involved land, he also benefited from investments in stocks. Near the end of the 2005, he invested between $50,000 and $100,000 in the Dow Jones U.S. Energy Sector Fund, which held shares in several major oil companies. According to National Review, the fund closed at $29.15 on the day Reid purchased. Nearly three years later, in August 2008, Reid sold some of his shares, which closed that day at $41.82. Two months later, Reid-supported legislation that would cost oil companies billions in taxes and regulatory fees passed. The Energy Sector Fund’s shares plummeted to $24.41 each.

48 Here we go again with the weaponization of "science" (charitably this is "social science" and let's just grant that for the sake of argument right now.)

The media has no idea what science is, so they see some numbers and assume it must be "science!" and then they report on it as such.

But this is a poorly designed experiment at best.
What is the makeup of their families?
Is there any other covariant that might explain this? (Perhaps by chance your sample size included a bunch of families from group X, which doesn't tend to pay any allowance at all and for whatever reason skewed towards having female children.)

What defines and "allowance."
For a bit (not very long) my parents paid me to cut the grass, my sister wasn't old enough to use the mower, ergo I got an "allowance" and she didn't.
Ageism perhaps, but hardly sexism. (Later they offered her the same deal, and she said "nah.")

At best this is bad science, at worst it was a an experiment designed to have a known outcome to be peddled as propaganda.

It wouldn't be the first time I've seen the latter.

62 Reid's a genius real estate develop. It's like he somehow just *knows* when land is gonna be rezoned. It's amazing! A gift, really.

RCP:

There is quite a bit of smoke.

In 1998, Reid invested $400,000 in an undeveloped residential property located on the outskirts of Las Vegas. Reid’s partner in the deal was attorney Jay Brown, whom Ralston describes as a “master manipulator.” Reid transferred his share of the property to a company Brown controlled in 2001. By transferring the land to Brown’s firm, Reid avoided legal liability and some taxes. But Reid didn’t note the transfer -- or that he had any stake in the company -- in his financial disclosure forms, despite rules requiring such transfers to be reported. By 2004, Brown’s company sold the land, which had been rezoned for a shopping center, and Reid received $1.1 million. He reported the sale as if he had always had control of the property.

When the Associated Press asked Reid about the deal during a 2006 interview, he hung up on the reporter. A spokesman later said that “there were several legal steps associated with the investment during those years that did not alter Senator Reid's actual ownership interest in the land.” However, there was no physical proof that Reid had any stake in Brown’s company. The story may have caused Reid public embarrassment -- he amended his ethics reports to include the full history of the property -- but he walked away from the deal some $700,000 richer.

Until a GOP / conservative candidate - whom the media cannot ignore, due to the virtue of the office they are competing for - calls them out on it and treats them as the propagandists they are.

Which is to say, allow them no room in your campaign. Do not give them access. Very obviously give other media outlets - Drudge, Fox (perhaps), WaTi, bloggers - the time and attention usually given to MFM. Routinely call them out as liars. When asked a question by an MFM talking head, refuse to answer - or, if you must answer, begin by slamming them with a nasty fact your opposition research team has picked up: "I'll be glad to answer that abortion question, Joe, as soon as you answer my question about the dead intern in your office" Hold virtual press conferences along the lines of a Bill Whittle video. Refuse to participate in any "debate" hosted by an MFM stooge.

Kick them in the balls repeatedly. They only have the power you give them. Take it back.

It's a raw percentage of people who get allowances vs. people who don't.

But look at the age range, 8-18.
More likely what you got was a bunch of people who logged on to complain they didn't get an allowance. And for whatever reason it skewed girl.

I'm guessing this was an open poll, because if you're going to go find a sample, you might as well make it a model sample (otherwise what's the point.)

the job of newspapers was not to report the news, but to sell advertising.

--

I used to work in the industry, and back then, the price of the paper didn't cover the cost of newsprint and ink. 93+% of revenue was advertising. Which, if you look at how many newspapers have died over the past decade, sort of proves the point. The news organizations, print and television, are actively losing money by slanting their coverage to assist their chosen policital party.

The concept was super-rich girls who drop $3k a day in shopping without batting an eye have to go travel around and work at real jobs for like $100 a day.

So anyway, they're living in this family's house, and they decide they don't wanna. So they go to the liquor store, only they don't have any money. So they get some chump to spend like $600 on booze, and then don't invite him to party with them.

Then they go to the nicest hotel in the area, introduce themselves, and ask to be put up in the nicest suite for free, and the manager agrees! Advertizing, baby!

132 People always seem to think that because the press has a special mention in the Constitution that somehow they should comport to a higher standard of behavior.

But that's not true and never has been.

The Media has always been biased. Newspapers were created for the purpose of bias and manipulation of the news and opinions of the day.

The major difference these days is that it appears as if too many of the public don't spend much time closely examining the motives and facts of a story or the outlet producing the story.

And there's been dishonest statements by known biased media creators that they are not biased. But that probably was also claimed before.

I think what gets most perturbed is that there is a seeming monolithic institution being created where only one side of any story gets most of the air/viewing time and this has warped our culture.

The public is being actively thwarted in it's ability to casually glean the truth from differing accounts because the accounts don't differ much and ancillary or as Ace points out Ride Along events are all slanted in one direction.

This is a function of the media's business model and business owner's drive to monopolize as much of the potential buyers as can legally be done.

Due to the First Amendment guarantees this also means a monopoly on the promulgation of supposed facts and the homogeneity of the Media politically.

Not much can be done about it without a massive influx of money to support the build up of competing outlets.

But that may not happen due to the apparent eminent collapse of the US.

145 Other reasons consumers may see higher premiums in 2015, he said, include the Obama administration’s decision to allow Americans to keep their health insurance plans for an additional year even if the plans did not meet the coverage requirements of the health law. Altmire said that most consumers signed up through the exchange were previously uninsured Americans who may have delayed seeking medical care, making them potentially more costly to insure. “A lot of them aren’t in the best of health,” he said, noting that consumers who signed up at the outset of open enrollment were likely the ones who needed it most. “We expect it to cost more to insure them because of deferred health needs.”

Altmire said Florida Blue was encouraged by a post-February surge in sign ups among young adults, but that the insurer did not enroll as many of the so-called “young invincibles” as it had hoped, to help spread the risk across a wide pool — another factor potentially affecting premiums next year.

164 Had a huge fight with my (conservative but non-political) rail-fan
husband last weekend. He started to read to me from some train magazine
(zzzzzz) about multiple instances of mismanagement and corruption
involving various New Jersey transit officials. I told him to get back
to me when the magazine reported on the same for New York, especially
considering the multiple deadly train crashes over the past year or two.


He absolutely refused to believe that this information was "in the
news" because of Chris Christie. He kept saying that a train magazine
has no political agenda. He just doesn't get that all these other
publications crib their "news" from the MSM and the MSM sets the agenda.
It seems so simple to me but I've run into this problem before with
non-political people - they just can't or won't see it.

Exciting goals include:
25% fewer dead baby fires.
10% fewer lynchings
5% fewer human sacrifices.

Portland Mayor Charlie Hales said the plan sounded nice, but was concerned the state was being rushed into this by right-wing pressure groups.

"Oregonians should be deciding how many dead baby fires we have. Not right wing tea party groups funded by the Koch Brothers waving their bibles at us."

"Sure, fewer dead baby fires sounds nice, but we can't compromise our progressive values just to appease the talk radio kooks. Rush Limbaugh doesn't run Oregon. Rush Limbaugh doesn't get to decide how many dead babies we burn in the winter."

218 After five years of delays, reviews and excuses, President Obama has apparently “all but decided to deny the permit for the [Keystone XL] pipeline,” according to Rolling Stone author Jeff Goodell.

Goodell claimed that Obama's decision really is about politics, despite claims from the administration and Democrats that was not the case.

“Although no final decision has been made, two high-level sources in the Obama administration told me recently that the president has all but decided to deny the permit for the pipeline – a dramatic move that would light up Democratic voters and donors while further provoking the wrath of Big Oil,” Goodell said.

Sign Up for the Politics Today newsletter!
Goodell said Obama's motivation behind the pipeline decision came from two factors: The obvious first being what Goodell described as the “politics of climate change,” which is just code for money. Billionaire Tom Steyer is mentioned in the very next sentence.

The other motivation is Obama’s perceived mark on history.

“Taking action on climate is one of the most important goals in the president's second term,” White House adviser John Podesta told Goodell. “He feels a profound and urgent obligation to get as much done as he can before he leaves office.”

Goodell said how Obama came to his decision was a “closely guarded secret,” but that he was told by members of the administration that the pipeline would be rejected.

Online polls are inherently biased: they require effort on the part of the pollee to register their opinions. That's the bias - only motivated people will waste their time like that(1).

Of course, as the old saying goes, when you're on the internet, no one knows you're a dog. Or in this case, whether ThinkProgress salted the poll. "Oh, yes, I'm between 8 and 18, and I don't get an allowance."

#WarOnWomen: NBC Now Claims That "Pay Gap" Even Extends to Girls' Allowances

Shockingly enough, this microaggression started out on the leftwing blog Think Progress and made it to NBC's airwaves in nothing flat.

A day after the liberal website Think Progress wrote a piece complaining “There’s Even A Gender Gap In Children’s Allowances” the folks over at NBC rushed to tie the issue to the “pay gap” between men and women.

On Thursday, April 24, Today show co-host Matt Lauer hyped “We all know about a pay gap that exists for adult men and women in the work world, but there are surprising new numbers this morning revealing that that gap actually begins during childhood with the allowances we pay our kids. In a new survey, 70% of boys say they get an allowance. That’s compared to just 60% of girls.”


Co-host Natalie Morales expressed shock at the so-called “pay gap” exists among children and complained “It’s true. Even though another study finds that girls spend more time doing chores. So basically, girls are doing more for less. This sounds kind of familiar right?"

This is based on a single survey by a group called "Junior Achievement."

By the way, NBC can't accurately report the numbers of this silly single poll. 59% of girls say they get an allowance, and 67% of boys. The differential (according to this silly poll) is 8%, not 10%, as they claim.

Shouldn't they sort of get simple numbers right?

Meanwhile, not only has socialist Sweden joined the #WarOnWomen, but they've been fighting it for years.

Consider Sweden, a country where the goal of gender parity is close to a national religion...

The results are not what anyone could call revolutionary.... [T]he difference in labor force participation is not dramatic, and in most respects, Swedish women behave much as sisters do in the U.S.

Like Americans, Swedish women work substantially fewer hours than men; they are 2 times as likely to be part timers. They are the vast majority of social workers, teachers, and child care workers and a small minority of scientists (PDF) and CEO’s (PDF). In fact, Sweden’s labor market is among the most sex segregated (PDF) in the world and their wage gap shows it. Mothers take in only about 20% as men, much the same as in the United States.

The results in other countries committed to gender role busting are much the same. Iceland has been crowned the most gender equal country in the world by the World Economic Forum (PDF) every year since 2009. They provide many of the same supports as Sweden. So does Norway, third on the WEF list and famous as the first country to institute a 40% female quota in corporate boardrooms. Women in both countries are well represented in parliament—about 40%. Yet the ladies still work fewer hours than their male counterparts and they are two times as likely to be part timers. They remain segregated in more traditionally “female” occupations. Their mommy wage gap? About the same as Sweden and the U.S.

14 It's also sad amazing that Junior Achievement has also sunk to the level of being a left-wing agitprop mill. When I was in school during the days of Ronaldus Maximus, Junior Achievement brought students together to do science projects and models of business operations. Apparently there has been a change in leadership since then, no? About par for the course in a lot of things since then...

17 ...the ladies still work fewer hours than their male counterparts and they are two times as likely to be part timers...

Funny that the article/study doesn't say whether this is BY CHOICE or not on the ladies' part.

Most working mothers I know CHOOSE to work fewer hours so that they can be home with their children.

Yeah, I know it's an inconvenient piece of information, but there it is....

18 WellI blame women for this allowance pay gap.

Afterall what is the usual single parent home? A single mom. Therefore for their to be unequal pay it is likely coming from women paying their sons more.

22 What the hell was the methodology to that poll, presuming there was one?

Because saying that boys get allowances but girls don't is meaningless without knowing if a family with both boys and girls treats their children differently. If a family with all girls gives none of them an allowance and a family with all boys gives all of them allowances, that tells you not thing one about if the parents of the girls would give a boy an allowance and the family of the boys would not give the girl an allowance.

How many of those families have a single child?

Why is there a presumption that all families should pay an allowance?

Are children of a certain age given an allowance but others aren't? For example, a girl who is 16 and has a part time job is not given an allowance because she has her own job but her 7 year old brother is given an allowance because he's 7 and cannot have a job.


Or, in other words, this is all insane bullshit.

Women haven't wielded as much collective political power since the matriarchies of pre-history fell apart. If society doesn't then correspond to the expectations of the majority of women the question we should be asking is whether these expectations are in fact realistic.

70 My dad had two girls, no boys, so I have no direct experience with this, but on the face of it I would guess that the boys would be more likely to be doing things like lawn mowing, which is a task for which parents might otherwise pay an outsider.

As for girls doing more chores around the house, I suppose this is possible, but I think little girls are more likely to spend (by choice) after school hours with their moms, who might be doing things like laundry and cooking. So I'd be curious to know if the "doing chore" time being reported is on their own or with their moms.

I used to like to spend time with my mom polishing the silver and setting out the good dishes for special meals. I wouldn't consider that a chore, just time with mom.

Okay let's tabulate and I'm going to low ball these numbers:

Let us say our Lovely Young Couple goes to a high class dinner at Wendy's where they both get a small combo - $13

Next up, movie tickets and since it's a date, it's IMAX 3D - $25

Now it's snack time, a small drink each, a small popcorn each, a box of Ike & Mike's - $25

Afterwards, it's time for a milkshake at McDonalds - $5

117 All of our kids got a very small allowance based on age.
A buck a week until age 8, then increasing by a buck per year. Lucky little devils got a whole $10 bucks by 18!
If they wanted more, we had plenty of jobs they could do to earn it --- outside of regular chores they were supposed to do just to be semi-civilized.

Now, one of the girls did bitch about being paid much less to clean the (tiny) laundry room than her brother got to clear brambles off the walk.
So I went socialist one time, paid them the same, and had her do the brambles while he did the laundry.

Heh.

127 By the way, NBC can't accurately report the numbers of this silly single poll. 59% of girls say they get an allowance, and 67% of boys. The differential (according to this silly poll) is 8%, not 10%, as they claim.

Actually, that particular claim is correct. The differential is not in absolute percentages, but in relative percentages. To simplify, let's say that 1% of girls get allowances and 2% of boys get allowances. It is correct to say that the differential is 100%, because compared to the number of girls 100% more boys receive an allowance. Here it is 59 to 67, which is actually closer to 14% than 10%, but who cares.

The answer is: don't give children allowances. Allowances can instill a belief that one is owed something merely for existing, which is a bad, bad idea.

I never received an allowance, but I was paid for things like cutting the lawn.

136 The simplest way to show that the pay gap is 100% bullshit is this:

If women only got paid 77 cents on the dollar all else being equal, no man would ever get hired for any job. It would be in the interest of every company to only hire women. BOOM!! You just saved 23% on labor costs.

173 NYTs: “I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, “and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch — they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.

Continue reading the main story
“And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he asked. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”

I've got no kids of my own, but talked with a friend about his son staying with me for a while after he'd slipped off the path.

I told my friend that the deal is: I will stock the house with food whatever else the son needs for one week. On his arrival, I will hand him a bill for the advanced supplies and a list of stuff he can do to pay for them and earn more. The rest is up to him.

181 I wonder also how many kids (like me) were explicitly told they don't get an allowance, but that it was a fee for service related to chores.

Sometimes, parents just buy stuff for you that you want. If what you really want is clothes, they tend to do it. If it's toys, they want you to buy it on your own.

The bottom line, though, is that you don't ask the kids, you ask the parents.

201 Speaking of the #WarOnWomen and those who are completely out of touch with reality...

Fox News is about to launch what I can only presume is an attempt to capture some of the "The View" type of audience. The show will be called "Outnumbered" and will feature a panel of four women and one man.

First: I would venture a guess that the women who are watching Fox News during the middle of the day are not interested in The View or soaps or Ellen or whatever else is running in the afternoon. Otherwise, they would be watching it already.

Second: If they hope to capture some of the audience who are watching the aforementioned shows they are kidding themselves. Do they really think those who enjoy Whoopi and Babwa are going to tune in to FNC just because they offer a female oriented show? It's still FNC fer chrissakes!

Third: Does anyone else remember the weekend experiment a few months back when Fox aired an all-female show? It was like listening to nails on a chalkboard. Worse! It was like listening to someone tearing paper. Slowly. It was simply ghastly.

As with the NFL and their pink cleats and their Alyssa Milano designed jerseys, pandering to women will result in pissing off the loyal fans.

I count myself among them.

202 What this boils down to is how parents define the money they give their boys compared to girls. I would guarantee that the 8% still was getting money from their parents but it was at a moments request rather than chores = $ = allowance.

Please, show me a time where a little girl is denied anything from a doting father or mother for that fact? I certainly don't see the streets awash with girl children in rags playing with a piece of wood or scrap metal in the front yard all while male children are living in the lap of Mattel luxury.

differential (according to this silly poll) is 8%, not 10%, as they

The answer is: don't give children allowances.

Posted by: Vashta Nerada at April 24, 2014 01:04 PM (sBUAE)
----------------------
There are good arguments pro and con.

A regular income, however small, allows kids to learn to tithe and to budget. It also lets you dock the allowance if they haven't done the bare minimum of cleaning up after themselves.

(Hmmm, I guess if you make the allowance dependent on that, it isn't really a pure allowance/handout. So maybe we didn't give them true allowances after all.)

277 If that's your take-away from what he's saying, you've bought into the left's lies. He's not a politician, he's not a public figure. He's just a guy speaking his mind. The point he actually makes (about the destruction of the Black family (at the hands of Democrats)) is valid. As for the... less than artful way he put it? Yeah, I'm going to disagree with Sven. Barack Obama is far more culpable for Oregon burning babies to create electricity than I am for a single word that comes out of Mr. Bundy's mouth.

278 My Dad was the breadwinner. He paid the allowances. As the oldest male I cut the grass for seven months a year, shoveled snow when it fell, pulled weeds, raked leaves. I did chores, for which I received the same amount of allowance as my older sister who did nothing.

She's a flaming liberal, I'm conservative. I like working for a living. I like working. She hates working for a living, and hates working.

But liberals teach that every child should receive an allowance, not tied to chores so that the child 'will learn how to handle money better'. I call it a training program for future Free Shit Army members.

285 Sorry, AllenG, but when he decided to cast his failure to pay BLM fees as some sort of protest against the Administration, he became a public figure.

If I have a disagreement with the feds over fees or taxes, I'll use an accountant and lawyer to fight it within the system. I might even call my congressman and ask him to champion my case.

But if I decide "Hey, I do not recognize the Federal government's authority over my affairs, so I'll just not pay them for a couple of decades" (because, after all, I have no legal case) and then they call me on it so I'll drag my neighbors and grandkids and pregnant women into some showdown -- I'm a public figure at that point.

According to Chris Hayes, burning carbon is the moral equivalent of supporting slavery...

In “The New Abolitionism,” Chris Hayes of MSNBC observes that just as the end of chattel slavery meant that Southern slaveholders lost what they had come to understand as an income-producing asset, the fight against climate change requires that fossil fuel firms surrender their right to extract and exploit carbon. “So in order to preserve a roughly habitable planet,” Hayes writes, “we somehow need to convince or coerce the world’s most profitable corporations and the nations that partner with them to walk away from $20 trillion of wealth.” Hayes’ essential point is that the threat of expropriation is so potent that fossil fuel firms will fight it tooth and nail, which makes the battle against climate change truly cosmic.

308 Again. Here is the quote:

“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, “and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch — they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.
"And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he asked. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”


Pretty clear that he is a racist. You can hear how he demands to own slaves to feed his cattle in the hot sun. KKK!!!Confederacy!!ELEVENTY!!!

Posted by: Daybrother at April 24, 2014 01:41 PM (sKRGS)

309 The thing is, I'm pretty sure the reason that girls get less allowance, based on my experience, is that they are just outright given more things.

I had an allowance when I was a teenager. My sister didn't. She just got money whenever she asked. I drove a Datsun 710 I bought myself. My baby sister was given a brand new Jeep Wrangler. And had her gas paid for. And when she ran out of gas on the road, as she did every 2-3 weeks, I got to go fill her tank so she could get home.

I was actually expected to do stuff for any money I got, my sister not so much.

According to that study, the fact my sister got no allowance, and I did, is some sort of inequality. Well, yes, but not the direction they think.

I'd hazard a guess that many of those girls who don't get an allowance got lots of outright gifts. And they probably think they are still not getting enough.

312 This "poll" is the stupidest thing. It's ridiculous on its face. Only if you have a family with boys and girls, and those in the same age group do the exact same chores and have the exact same grades in school and have the exact same needs — and the boys are paid more in allowance — only then can you make this claim. Maybe. But every family is different and you just can't analyze families the same way you can analyze businesses.

It is beyond the pale that a person who would even remotely consider themselves a "journalist" would take this one survey, handed to them by a liberal activist blog like Think Progress, and then run with it like its actual news.

That's nothing short of disgraceful. And frankly, until this problem is solved, I will be shocked to see a Republican win a national office in this country. The media narrative is so far in the tank for Democrats that it would take a near act-of-god for them to lose. As if you need further proof than the re-election of the incompetent in chief, Obama.

We Are All In The "Let It Burn" Camp

We got an interesting question for the mailbag this week that I'm going to steal for this post. I'm not entirely sure it's theft since it was directed to me and I may not make this week's recording so I'll give it a go here.

For Drew: When are you going to go join Red State w/ the let-it-burn crowd?-Jumble

First, thanks for writing in Jumble.

Second, there's no need to leave for Red State or anywhere else to join the "Let-it-burn crowd" because it's everywhere.

Note the actual phrase begins with "let". It's a passive word. No one is saying "Start a fire and burn it down". It is burning already.

Out of control entitlement spending, zero political will to control discretionary spending and an unchecked debt is the fuel that is feeding this fire.

You want to know who is actively fanning the flames of this fire? Mainstream Republican candidates and office holders, not tea party fanatics or people who simply have lost interest in trying to stop the conflagration.

In fact, it's these "grown ups" who are so darn "electable" that are actively doing something....putting more fuel on the fire.

The Budget Control Act which led to the sequester was imperfect to say the least but it actually worked to cut spending. Who forced the Republicans to give that up and hike spending again? It wasn't the so-called "let it burn crowd". Nope, it was the mainstream of the Republican party.

Was it the so-called "let it burn crowd" that forced the GOP to cut a deal with Maxine Waters to give back modest but real reforms and cuts to the national flood insurance program? Nope. That was the House GOP leadership going around conservatives.

Was it the so-called "let it burn crowd" who resorting to anti-democratic means on the floor of the House to increase Medicare spending? Again, no.

Obviously I could go on and on with examples of this but I think we all agree we're in a mess that predates the "tea party" or "let it burn".

I know there are people who think if you vote for enough Republicans things will get better because, um, er, the Democrats are worse! A vote for more "mainstream" Republicans isn't a vote against the "let it burn crowd" it's a vote to control how much faster you want it to burn.

Until people realize that with the GOP as presently constituted stopping the increase in the rate of burning, let alone putting the fire out isn't on the menu and nothing will change.

So don't look at those of us who have washed our hands of this mess as the ones unwilling to stop the burning. We tried and were told to shut up. You guys who insist on voting for the GOP which will add more fuel to the fire are the ones who are grunting "fire good!", not us.


Added: An enlightening but wrong view from a commenter.

My response:

Actually you have that exactly backwards.

Adults can tell children that things are bad for them (as conservatives are telling the GOP and the country that out of control spending will lead to disaster) but children won't listen.

Sometimes children will only learn by example and doing. In this case you will spend you way into oblivion by insisting that spending more but not as much as Democrats is an actual solution.

You will learn but like a child touching a hot stove after being told not to, you will have to be burned first.

44 Kinda like the Islam Vs America thing. The NYT has coverage of the shooting at a Western private hospital. A quote from the piece:
The Taliban did not claim responsibility for the attack, raising the possibility that the gunman was part of a growing class of Afghans disenchanted with the presence of Americans in the country. Bitterness has spilled into the narrative about the American presence here, as fears about the military withdrawal and its attendant uncertainty grow.
So, according to the two Muslim reporters, Afghans are shooting Americans (Westerners) because they are there and also because they are leaving. The GOPe wants lockstep votes and wants the Tea Party to fight for conservative principles as long as the Tea Party has no power and doesn't fight for conservative principles.
BTW the GOPe is a peaceful party that wants to coexist with small government.

This is why the job of libertarians is to move the Overton Window. Neither Dems nor Reps in power will do anything to restrain Leviathan.

We need to get people, ofwhatever affiliation, persuaded that liberty is a good thing. Economic liberty is a good thing which also works. Personal liberty is a good thing which empowers.

Government spending money my children haven't earned yet and destroying their chances to do so is not a good thing. Government agencies empowered to micromanage all human activity and enforce fiat with military tactics is not a good thing.

65 The election of Lincoln relegated the Whigs to the dustbin of history in one election. If we could get a viable candidate who could draw the rational thinkers and take the heart right out of the middle, we could do the same with the Republican party - and possibly the Democrat party all at once. Kill the establishment parties in one election.

And despite what so many think, there is a relatively large segment who vote left and who really aren't lefties. They vote that way because they were born into it, or their circle of friends votes that way. But they are as fed up as we are.

An adult faces reality. "Mainstream" Republicans are the least bad option. You can try to change who is up for elections through the nomination process, butif you lose that, there is no point in tearing down the nominee. All it does is help democrats get elected.
Yes, lets criticize the McCain's while in office if they do something bad. But when they win the nomination, you say the McCain is the best we've got, and here is all the good things they can do, here is all the bad thing theirs opponent will do,we have to back him to the hilt.
When you compareEisenhower to FDR, there is no comparison.
When you compare Nixon toLBJ there is no comparison
When you compare Bush I to Bubba, there is no comparison
When you compare Bush II to Obama, there is no comparison.
The country is better served with the former to the latter. Stop acting like there isn't any difference. Would you rather have Bush's rate of spending or Obama's? There's no comparison.
In 08 Debt to GDP was at 38%, near the historical (if still terrible) average.Today it is 74%. (CBO figures) Keep on tearing down the only people we have, doomthe countryto satisfy your purity urge. Things will get so much worse when that debt hits 100%. Our goal, as a party, should be to keep that from happening as long as we can until the next real conservative comes. Not "meh, lets get it to 100% and then hope Regan II gets here".

97 Because it burns us as well. We aren't inoculated from the liberals' shitty policies.

If you're not taking the energies no longer wasted on trying to stop the inevitable and using them to protect and shore up the seeds of what we'll need afterwards, it's just apathy and surrender.

Build up your families, your churches, your communities. Learn the skills to keep things running. Set aside supplies and tools.

Just because you're letting it burn shouldn't mean you're not making ready to start rebuilding afterwards.

We should have started a replacement party by now.

We should have started the cores of what new networks and institutions we'll need by now.

I hope somebody has. Otherwise this will not work out for the best.

98 I will still continue to vote R because I don't want the Ds thinking they have my buy-in.

Besides, I, perhaps naively, think that occasionally I get to vote for guys I think are actual good guys like Greg Abbott and Ted Cruz.

(I almost, almost voted in the primary for the guy who legally changed his name to SECEDE Kilgore. He's a nut job but I support his cause.)

But I have little hope that this ship can be righted. Within the next few decades we morons are going to be little islands of sanity in a heaving sea of bullshit. So my focus is on teaching my family the things that I know to be true about God, about freedom, about dignity, about the ideals that this country was founded upon, so that those ideas can stay alive and maybe have some prayer of resurrection in the future. I tell my oldest daughter, who is 12 and skeptical/smart like a whip (total future moron) that she has a huge responsibility on her shoulders--that she's going to have to fight for principles someday that her grandparents took for granted when they were growing up. She is listening.

And we are working toward preparedness and self-sufficiency. We don't have rural property to retreat to, but we can do a few things to prepare if stuff gets bad, which we expect it to.

That's all I can do for now. I wish that there was a committed opposition party, because if there were I'd work my ass off for it, but there's not, and there's little I can do to change that.

Try living for a week, or at least a few days with what you currently have in your home. You will not like it and you will find out you are not prepared.

Say, the rhyme below stated out as a two-liner for a comment in the earlier thread, but grew. I was going to just post it on my site, but, after reading Drew's post, I thought I'd dump it here. Apologies if inappropriate.

______

As the Union succumbs
to the failure cascade,
Undoing the best
that our ancestors made,
Good citizens wonder,
as we lose our lands,
Where's the Nation we swore to,
for which that Flag stands?

Not found in D. C.,
only Lincoln's cold eyes;
Not taught in the schools,
brainwash jails in disguise;
Not on the T. V.,
Father never knows best.
Not found in the churches
where Lucifers nest.

Republicanism is lost,
the mob rules.
Tyranny by
a committee of fools.
No respect for Real law
Nor for Our Constitution,
This plague eats away
At each good institution.

No New World escape;
all the globe has been found.
No fleeing to Space,
NASA stares at the ground.
We're not just surrounded,
We've been infiltrated,
The enemy acted
while good people waited.

Laid seige, persecuted,
defeated, dispersed,
Liberty's torch
will shine out
through the worst,
That Spirit of 76
will inspire,
Those God-granted Rights
setting new hearts on fire.

Corruption may win,
no more once a great nation,
But some will retain
that Great Declaration,
And seek Independence,
that some day we'll see
A new home of the brave,
In the land of the Free.

1. It came from the NYT so it is automatically suspect. Need the original broadcast.


2. He really worded it poorly, but what he is saying is that blacks would be better off w/o all the welfare and government support. Something that a number of conservative black pundits have been saying for years.

Posted by: Vic at April 24, 2014 11:40 AM (T2V/1)

143 Turns out that over the last few months, we've picked up on the fact that each time the DSCC sends an "important message" to voters of a battleground state, a liberal outside group quickly adheres to the message by producing an ad to be run on television. In other words, anytime the DSCC sends an "important message," it is a directive to outside groups to run an "uncoordinated" ad (since, you know coordination would be illegal). Pretty confident in our theory, yesterday we made an open bet that by Cinco De Mayo, Reid's Majority PAC would run an ad in New Hampshire that closely follows the script provided by the DSCC/Shaheen (we also note the hypocrisy of Shaheen ranting about the "people's pledge" to limit outside money while posting images scripts for sources of outside money to run ads).

Turns out we gave Majority PAC too much credit. Less than 24 hours after receiving the directive from the DSCC, Senate Majority PAC has reserved hundreds of thousands of dollars of air time in Manchester New Hampshire. Remember, coordination would be illegal, so Democrats are trying their best to find ways to subvert (or work around) the law.

159 Sorry, but not all of us are in the 'Let it burn' camp. 'Let it burn' is a kind of passive statement of purpose, which seems somewhat self-negating insofar as purpose is concerned. It also translates as 'do nothing but bitch or gloat', with a smug 'I told you so' waiting in the wings.

I've got no use forLet It Burnas an attitude or a philsophy or as a plan of (in)action.It's anultimately defeatist fantasy that portrays life as a disaster movie, and only requires of its adherents that they lie back and watch the show. Not me, thanks.

Arguable, we had that moment with Perot in 1992. People forget just how well Perot did by third party standards, and with a bit more professionalism in his organization and a stronger VP pick -- who knows.

Since then, the Republicans are 2 out of 6 in Presidential races, and those 2 victories were by narrow one state EV margins. Frankly what's going on reminds me of the slow fade of the Liberal Party in the UK as the opposition party to the Conservatives. Took a couple of decades, but at the end, Labor edged them out of their ecological niche and into the wilderness.

162 It will take at least a generation for the effects of institutionalized socialism to inflict the level of damage on this country that other Marxist/Socialist societies dealt with, and in the end the result might be bastardized quasi-authoritarian hodgepodge where freedoms are implied, but not real - like Russia or China.

163 What happens when it actually "burns"?

Have we ever seen an example where things get really bad and eventually some sort of free-market paradise rises from the ashes?

You can have full blown communist countries that keep going for nearly a hundred years.

If I genuinely thought that stepping back meant some sort of Utopia would get here quicker, I'd be all for that. I just don't see a convincing case. It looks like Wishcasting to me.

Also, I'm no fan of the Republican Establishment, but the decade where Bush and the Republican Congress were in charge were not bad times. Of course it wasn't "pure", but I'd trade those times for our current government in a heartbeat.

My other question to the let it burn crew (and ya'll really need to do a frozen parody while you're at it), is about the supreme court. Do you really want some of those 5/4 decisions going the other way? Do you really want things to get that bad?

OT because I have special dispensation being a foreigner in a different time zone as in tomorrow

Hello from way Down Here in Sydney on early Friday morning

Today, April 25th is our ANZAC Day, similar to your Veterans Day

This is probably our most important national occasion and it marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Aussies and Kiwis during WW1


ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps and today has ended up as the day to commemorate all of those who served and those who died in all warsin which we took part

The day will start soon with Dawn services right around the country and the big one at Gallipoli in Turkey - ANZAC Cove plus another big service at Villers Bretonneaux in Franceat the huge war memorialthere

After this there are marches in all the cities and towns around OZ

We'll be at the Sydney march later today - one of the patients at the GP practice I work at is marching - he turned 90 last Saturday and reckons he will not miss this march until he falls off the perch!

We have been on an ever-more quickening socialist/statist trajectory for nearly 100 years. Very fast since LBJ and now at warp speed since the waning years of Bush and SCOAMF.

The mindset of Americans, thanks to our educational indoctrination system is to hate American traditional values and to vilify anyone who advocates same.

The only real course of action that will save this nation is to abolish virtually every Federal agency - especially the IRS and EPA - and revert back to limited government and SELF-SUFFICIENCY.

Whoever advocates that is my hero and stands a snowball's chance in Hell politically.

At first, I thought that the decline of this country was happening very rapidly. I now don't think that. I believe the decline of this country has already happened, and that the apparent large scope of changes are really desperation. Desperation to maintain the status quo - on the right - and desperation to kill the disease of capitalism that the left sees as the source of what led us to this point.

I believe that it is equally desperately necessary for these acts of desperation by the left and the right be stopped before something really bad and permanent happens to this country.

If you're not taking the energies no longer wasted on trying to stop the inevitable and using them to protect and shore up the seeds of what we'll need afterwards, it's just apathy and surrender.

Build up your families, your churches, your communities. Learn the skills to keep things running. Set aside supplies and tools.

Just because you're letting it burn shouldn't mean you're not making ready to start rebuilding afterwards.

We should have started a replacement party by now.

We should have started the cores of what new networks and institutions we'll need by now.

This is exactly right and bears repeating.


I will mention one thing i'm doing to try to keep the wheels turning after a "burn." I've set up a natural gas fueling station for my community, and i've been buying up natural gas powered vehicles. (Also buying CNG compressor equipment.)

I'm planning to get certified to do conversions as well.


Natural gas doesn't need refining, it just needs water removed from it. (Dessication.) It is abundant and far more viable for simple equipment to provide fuel.

Again, you don't need a refinery.

So, even if they once thought they could stem the tide, they've pretty much given up.

Where I guess I would disagree with you is where you say they have the "actual power to staunch the collapse." They don't.
The only power strong enough to stop this decline, much less turn it around, is the media.

*coooo*


Lots of people make a reasoned argument that the welfare state has been a
detriment to blacks. He "worded it poorly" because he spoke the way
racists speak when they're being racist.


Or, to paraphrase a common Kathy Shaidle truism, he spoke the way lots of "real people" speak when they're having these conversations in their living rooms or on their porches or around the pool. Because he's an average guy, one who's of that age where his words aren't going through a PC filter. Do I think what he said was a racial powderkeg? Sure. Do I think the left will blow it up? Absolutely. Do I think there are a lot of people who would listen to or read what he said and say, secretly, inside their own heads, "You know, he kind of has a point, in an old-fashioned way..." Yeah, I do.

We can make all the reasoned arguments we want. It's not going to make a dent in public opinion, because reasoned arguments by conservatives don't make the press. Sometimes the only way anyone gets to hear what you have to say is if you say something that raises eyebrows.

Personally, my response if anyone asked me about Cliven Bundy's words would be, "What the hell do I care what one rancher in Oklahoma thinks about the poverty rate of the country's black population? That's not the issue here. The issue is the government sending armed thugs to seize an American citizen's livelihood. So you can quit trying to get me off topic and instead you can focus on the real issue at stake here. Let's talk about THAT."

It's not a matter of let it burn.

If things continue along the way they have for the last 6 years, it will burn and there is not much we are gong to be able to do to stop it.
Posted by: Nevergiveup at April 24, 2014 11:45 AM (t3UFN)



Isn't the definition of let it burn what these lovely circular firing squads are about?

Honestly, every thread on this devolves into people talking right past one another because there does not seem to be an agreement that the Burning Times will come.

On the one side are those pointing out that Math is a stone cold bitch and that which cannot go on forever won't.

On the other side are those who appear, as best I can tell, to reject the notion that we are approaching, if not past, the tipping point for terminal velocity.

If you do not accept the premise that we are facing catastrophic disaster due to near future entitlement spending shortfalls, then, yes, I can comprehend why you think let it burn is childish.

I will leave it for the Horde to ponder what I think of such a rejection of that premise.

245 Just this morning a conversation with the best friend centered on: he is on fast track to go high in a very large company, the issue is he was just offered "your next position within the company," it's in California.

Within three years he can be on the way to financial security if he takes this position, his career stops here if he says no. We went through positive and negative of the decision. His biggest sticking point was that we are set here where we are to continue putting food on the table if the burning starts, moving to California removes much of that. So if he goes he has to hope for at least three years before the fire really gets going.

We have actually reached this point in America. Hard to believe.

254 At some point, namely now, our only alternative will be a new party. The sooner we coalesce pro-Constitutional Republic interests and forces, the better. The longer voters postpone the inevitable, the harder and less hope the future will permit.

The Republican Party represents the neoconservative never-ending-wars Bush faction with their trained cheetah McCain with his band of flying monkeys and turkeys Cornyn and McConnell. And the Democrat Party represents the neoliberal NEW never-ending-wars including open warfare against law abiding US Citizens at home enabled by the Bush Patriot Act "best intentions".

There is no getting anywhere as each party is designed to enable the plundering of all things good, and the utter destruction of the Middle Class into serfs. "Resistance is futile" if you play along for their post-constitutional authoritarian oligarchy. To think that if we all band together, we can reclaim either major party from the transnational corporations' clutch is vain.

There is no "taking back the GOP" from those whom the insiders represent. Just as there was no "taking back the Democrat Party" from the Marxist Left.

It would not matter how may VOTES you get. It's who COUNTS the votes that determines the victor. Given how ACA was "made" law, elections are shams in like manner. Before you know it, all government positions will be appointments. Elections are such a waste...

And there is no longer any expectation that within the Republican National Party at least, you're dealing with those who value and protect Rule of Law and our Constitutional Republic.

GOP USPS Mailer
Here's $.51 that you may as well throw in the trash if you don't send me your $30.00 donation to dethrone McConnell with just another McConnell wannabe who promises "to do whatever it takes to ..." nothing specific. Naturally, omitting words like "Constitution" or "Civil Rights" or "Rule of Law" let alone "Liberty and Justice for All."

Indeed. However There are several high profile Fox broadcasters as well as a number of HP blogs that have invested in Bundy and will try to get him to be clearer. Interestingly, the interview by the former sheriff who claimed a plan to put women and children in front and then walked back his assertion hasn't gotten the airplay expected. Maybe partly because dozens of others interviewed said they were at the meeting and nothing of the sort was ever discussed. Every time Bundy opens his mouth he says something strange because the man can't speak well. He's an old rancher not a politician. Running a long clip to prove he is a racist necessitates a deeper look at how poorly he expresses himself.
I already mentioned the other day how the reporter from "The Root" on Fox called him a symbol for all old White Men who are All Racists. That is not gonna change.

This is my understanding as well. I think a lot of people are just looking at the Federal Debt, and not looking at the future unfunded liabilities of Social Security etc.

That's true. But there are ways of screwing you out of those.

First, you're not guaranteed to get those items. Congress can...revise...the amounts you get.

Second, via Death Panels in Obamacare, the number of years on SS and such can be...shortened.

Third, they can always inflate away the problem. I used to tell people that at some point Social Security will cease, and I would get bitched at. I took that in stride, and now will tell them yes, there will be SS in the future. It's just that the $1,500/month that you get will be able to buy a loaf of bread, and maybe some bacon. If you're lucky.

306 "Let it burn" is an interesting concept, that we are trying here locally.

We live in a 1,700+ unit historical neighborhood.
And we have a Voluntary Community Association which I serve on.
NOT an HOA, but with voluntary membership, and voluntary dues.

The new kids all want to be on the Board, so that we can move forward into the future, in a neighborhood that in it's entirety is on the National Register.

So they get on the Board, but seem to fail at every simple task that comes their way. They want the cool ideas, but have no experience to take a vision to completion.

In other words, these clowns could not come up with, nor execute a plan to get a Sailor laid in a South American whore house on payday night after six months at sea.

And this time, us old folks are just making sure that the flames only consume the useless deadwood,without weakening the main structure of the organization.

My 2 cents here.


I understand Let it burn and let it Burn.

Can't subscribe to either.

Rather keep on trying to fix it as best I'm able.

Both viewpoints suggest to me (this is my personal outlook) giving up.

Can't do that.

So call me Eddie Willers if you wish,that's how it is.

I hold no resentment toward proponents of either course, it simply isn't in me to quit.

You have to know when your "help" is "enabling" and stop "helping". Sometimes you have to let, that which you love fail, so that lessons are learned. That's conservative values. And that's adult thinking.

Part of me secretly hopes this whole Bundy debacle was a diabolically clever trap sprung by cunning Democratic operatives, but I know better.

364 The election of Lincoln relegated the Whigs to the dustbin of history in one election. If we could get a viable candidate who could draw the rational thinkers and take the heart right out of the middle, we could do the same with the Republican party - and possibly the Democrat party all at once. Kill the establishment parties in one election.

And despite what so many think, there is a relatively large segment who vote left and who really aren't lefties. They vote that way because they were born into it, or their circle of friends votes that way. But they are as fed up as we are.

The thing is that in the election of 1860 both sides were split: The Whigs/Republicans on one side and the Democrats/Southern Democrats on the other. Lincoln ended up getting the most votes in a four-way race, but if the Democrats had united behind one candidate or another he would have lost.

So in order for Conservatives to pull off an 1860 style win in 2016 something will have to happen that will split the Democrat Party. Unfortunately I just don't see that happening...

Who teaches that those who founded their country are somehow wrong for wanting freedom? And who teaches that freedom itself is something bad?

Posted by: Romeo13 at April 24, 2014 12:25 PM (84gbM)

It isn't playing the race card when someone extolled as a hero like Cliven Bundy is actually a frothing-at-the-mouth bigot who wonders if, hey, maybe negro slavery wasn't all that bad.One can't fault the Left for exploiting this for all it's worth.

I don't advocate conceding the ground. I'm saying it wasn't good ground in the first place. Nobody bothered to vet Cliven Bundy, racist idiot,before making him an examplar of citizen's rights. That was a mistake. That kind of mistake must never happen again.

Posted by: Brandon In Baton Rouge


In the catalog of things that pisses me off about TWD is their choice of weaponry.

Out in the open, the dum-dumbs should be using spears not knives. Even if you're able to sink a knife into a zombie head, there's a significant chance you won't be able to retrieve it.

SPEARS. They should be using spears. Dumb people running that show. Dumb people.

379 Preach it, brother Drew.

Boehner is really turning on the advertising $$, and has probably drowned out 2 of his 3 challengers. He is probably hoping to win due to familiar support from long-term voters in his district. The Tea Party's guy is still loud and campaigning hard though, and there are many people who settled here within the district in the past decade who are probably willing to hear a second opinion. This primary will definitely be interesting!

Good night all and have a wonderful yesterday!


Regarding your political process - I despair for you - however there are a lot of you who can and will overcome this present state of affairs

How many days until your dear President is out of office? Surely he will be classed as a dead duck President soon even by his beloved MSM

There surely must be clear thinking Republicans hiding somewhere who will change the narrative?

If not, a new conservative party is the solution - might take some time to be established of course, but this new party might just be able to save you from the brink of destruction... wishful thinking maybe

Please don't self destruct just yet - we have a trip to the US planned in November!

381 While I don't think a new party is likely, I am open to the idea. I find it silly to believe that we will just always have a Dem and GOP party. Nothing lasts forever. And things of that nature usually sneak up on you. So while I'm not expecting it, it wouldn't surprise me if in 10 years, something like that actually happens.

384 Disregarding some of the off color (sorry) parts of his comments, what exactly is wrong with the gist of what he was talking about?

Are Blacks really better off now than during slavery?

Yes there's the question of liberty and free will but during slavery were they better off then than today?
Currently American Blacks have a Massive crime rate, millions in prison, neighborhoods trashed, families turned into vote dispensers, millions of children aborted and millions left uneducated.
The critical thing to consider is that the question can be reasonably asked.
Their misguided loyalty to Democrats and the Democrats obsessive adherence to bad/toxic policies has brought their community in this country to a place worse than being a slave in so many ways.

It's time to stop rejecting anything anyone ever says again because they said something in a manner that left them open to racial or gender bias accusations. A charge the Media is always eager to levy no matter the details.

Why do we continue to let the left write the rules?

Why play if there's no way to win?

389 I've withdrawn from the entire shit parade. The whining of the "Let the GOP Save Us You Crazy Conservative Cranks!" Crowd has zero appeal to me - you demand my vote as if I owe you, as if you have a right to my vote because you support someone I find repulsive but less repulsive than a Bolshevik.

Look, my vote is mine. It is a sacred thing to give my vote to someone. If all I have to decide between are John McCain-style/Boehner-style semi-leftwingers and full-on Soviet Democrats, I Choose Neither.

When you demand my vote, you lose the argument. You are a petit tyrant and I will not help you.

I wouldn't limit this to an American problem. This is just world history. Your analogy is apt, but it is bascially the history of the world.
