ONT: Advent Of Winter Fatness

Well, we in the New England have had an abrupt end to an unbelievably long run of great weather. Our Spring actually started in Spring for a change, our Summer was one of the most weather-perfect in long years of memory, and this Autumn was superb leaf-peeping for weeks.

But just a few days ago we had our first Nor'easter. Something funny happens when the temperature dips and the mornings get clear and crisp. And then this funny thing intensifies when the first snows arrive.

What happens is, all the fat cells in our bodies send urgent messages of 'Want' to the Blubber Cortex of the brain. The Blubber Cortex then activates the Cake Gland, which is located in your elbow, and is responsible for lubricating and strengthening all the joints that help you bring a fork to your mouth.

And food just looks really good, all the time.

In order to get my mind off food, I took a bunch of dramatic weather-photos of puffy clouds today. Here's one.


Note the seagull off in the distance, and the low grey sky.

More cloud pictures below the fold.


Another ocean picture. I like the way the setting sun is reflected in the grits water.

Here's some especially fluffy, peaceful clouds. Make me think of Sunday mornings. And huge, roomy pants.


I like it when clouds go on the grill and get kind of a crusty bark on the outside, you know, where the fat turns to delicious candy? But the inside is still medium-rare? Yeah. Good clouds. This one reminded me of that.



Aaaaand. This is just a picture of pancakes and sausages with syrup. No idea how this one got mixed up in the series.

This concludes your awful substitute for an Ace Of Spades HQ Overnight Thread. Thank you for your patronage.

If you have any questions about the subjects you have seen here tonight, please feel free to inquire at your local public library, just for laughs. If you have complaints and psychiatric problems, send a page of your deranged gibberish to: Biggest Idiot Ever Conceived, 990 Prospect Avenue, Hartford, CT 06105.

OKAY.

So. What are you guys doing this weekend?

39 Sun-Tzu & The Progressives

http://politicalhat.com/?p=524

In order to defeat the Leviathan of the Left, we must understand those progressives that so threaten our virtue and our liberty. As Sun-Tzu said:

“It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.”
—Sun-Tzu

So, what is the core ethos of the Democrats and the left?

The ultimate root of the divide between “right” and “left” can be traced back to the French Revolution. Edmund Burke, who can be rightly said to be father of conservatism as American know and understand it, believed that there was much good in society, and eliminate what evil there is, but only press those changes necessary to eliminate that evil itself, without wrecking the rest of society. Though Burke took the side of the Americans in the War of Independence, he was against the French Revolution, but for the same reason: While the Americans wanted to preserve their domestic institutions, the French wanted anything but.

When the French Revolution came about, it was clear that the Jacobins wanted to destroy society so as to replace it with their delusions of a “scientific” utopia. It is this core ethos that is shared by the modern Progressive left, as well as of Fascists, Communists, and other assorted expungers of freedom. The left’s core principles can thus be summarized in five points:

1. Corporatism This basically involves dividing people up into different groups and denigrating them such that their only worth is in being part of that group. The state thereafter comes in and “arranges” these groups, as well as other matters, to the benefit of the state, or the collective whole. Since everyone is simply a part of Leviathan, what benefits the collective whole allegedly benefits them, and people can have nothing that the state does not grant them.

2. Totalitarianism Or, as Mussolini said; “Everything within the state. Nothing outside the state. Nothing against the state.” Leeway to disagree with the “politically correct” zeitgeist in private is still totalitarianism, because for the left, it is not about directly controlling each individual in a proactive sense, but control of society, and thus narrow an individuals path to the point where it is prohibitive to disagree.

3. Transformative Socialism What truly stands the Progressive left from the tyrants of history, is a need to socialize society in order to transform it into their deluded visions of a utopia. They do not want to correct wrongs, but impose themselves on others, which is a wrong in and of itself. They wish to create society ex nihilo, from ideas divorced from reality that were developed in vacuo, and then treat people like they were but simple geometric proofs. Ultimately, they wish to subsume society into but an adjunct of the state.

4. Inequality Inequality in the name of equality. The left treats people unequally in order to create some superficial equality. The Jacobins had “nobles/churches,” the NAZIs had Jews, and Communists had Kulaks. Scapegoats were identified in order to rally people under their banner, and continuously blamed for the lefts own failures. The Progressive left has the Straight White Christian Male (i.e. “The Man”), and they lump American civilization together with their boogeyman in order to more easily destroy it.

5. Command and Control Dictates. While people may be allowed to have some choice in their own lives, it is only to the extent that it does not upset the plans of the society/state hybrid known as Leviathan.

The corporatism that the modern Progressive left believes in, is not limited to the economic sphere. It is Social Corporatism, where the left defines people narrowly based on some classification (e.g. gay, atheist, &c.), and then declare to that group, that the left will benefit their now narrowly-defined group if that group turns around and works to benefit all the other narrowly-defined groups, as determined by the leftist elitists, in order to create the utopian vision of those leftist elitists, with dissent being ever narrowed. This is identity politics, pure and simple.

The progressive left truly believes that “straight white X-tian males” oppress everyone else and that those “straight white X-tian males” are scared of losing their “privileged” position. They diminish American mores, norms, customs, society, &c. as being only that of “straight white X-tian males,” and that those “straight white X-tian males” MUST be crushed for others to be “free” of oppression. Thus, they bring in all other groups to smash the “kyriarchy,” and thus everything America stands for. The appeal of identity politics is so great, Obama even got 49% of the Cuban vote. Hitler did it with the Jews; Lenin & Stalin did it with the Kulaks; the modern progressive left is doing it with the “straight white X-tian males.”

Also, by carving out more and more people from the “straight white X-tain male” demographic, it makes those “straight white males” a small minority that can be effectively targeted. Thus, our Republic is diminished past the stage of pure democracy, and straight on into Ochlocracy. This was amply demonstrated in the 2012 election.

The left does not really want “tolerance.” Every society has norms and taboos. People’s own norms and taboos are usually clustered like a bell curve, where most people are common enough in their mores to form a society, with extreme outliers that society will not accept. The left does not want to “tolerate” these outliers by expanding the boundaries of societies norms to include them. What the left wants can be summed up by “Mirror-Universe Mitt Romney” over at the Ace of Spades HQ:

“It’s important to note that Leftists are not opposed to norms or mores. What they are opposed to is established norms and/or mores and norms and/or mores which they deem to sustain/perpetuate “the patriarchy” / the Hegemony/Superiority of Western Civilization.

“It is also important to note that Leftists are not “anti-nomial.” They are in fact hypernomial. They love laws and imposing laws (as long as they are the ones making the laws and imposing them, as is the case with mores and norms). In fact, their infatuation with Government and its (destructive) potential comes from their “nomophilic” nature.

“However, while Leftists embrace the Nomos, they reject Logic and consistency as they prefer absolutism and view Logic as an outdated Western and/or patriarchal value/construct which favors those with superior cognitive abilities and “discriminates” against the “cognitively challenged.”

“And a final point on art: It is not only the law which teaches, but also art, and all the art that Leftists produce does serve to teach the previously mentioned “Leftist values,” and consists, in fact, of little more than thinly veiled “morality plays” (at least when it is coherent.)”

The decline and fall of Western Civilization can indeed be summed up through art.

To achieve their goals, they engage in social corporatism via inequality, in order to push transformative socialism towards their totalitarian command & control dictates. They did not start out demanding things like gay marriage and free partial birth abortion for pre-teens, but they did set down a narrow path towards it.

Remember:

Those who preach “tolerance” the loudest are the most intolerant.

Those who preach “diversity” are the most monolithically un-diverse when it comes to thought.

Those who preach “equality” the most, are the ones who demand that inequality be imposed.

Those who preach “social justice” which to impose injustice of the most putrid sort.

THE SECOND TERMING, by Jef Scoamf

Turning and turning in the widening gyre

The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

The best lack all conviction, while the worst

Are full of passionate intensity.


Surely some revelation is at hand;

Surely the Second Terming is at hand.

The Second Terming! Hardly are those words out

When a vast image out of Dreams of my Father

Troubles my sight; somewhere in wards of Chicago

A shape with lion body and the head of a man,

A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,

Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it

Reel shadows of indignant desert birds.


The darkness drops again; but now I know

That twenty centuries of stony sleep

Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,

And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,

Slouches towards Washington to be born?

OT: (Can it be OT in the OWT?) If you search for semi-auto rifles on cheaperthandirt.com, you will find almost nothing available in the .223/5.56 and .30/7.whatever NATO calibres. I mean there were maybe a dozen, no more than 2 dozen (too lazy to count) models in stock. Out or around 385 models of .223/5.56 they carry.

64 Congressional Republicans were furious with Petraeus for what they described to THE WEEKLY STANDARD as “misleading” testimony he gave to the House Intelligence Committee on September 14. In that session, Petraeus pointed to a protest over an anti-Islam YouTube video as a primary reason for the attacks on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, despite an abundance intelligence pointing to a preplanned terrorist assault on the U.S. consulate and CIA annex there. Other members of Congress were particularly interested in questioning Petraeus about why crucial details about those attacks were left out of “talking points” the CIA prepared for lawmakers and executive branch officials. Among those details: the existence of a communications intercept between two al Qaeda-linked terrorists discussing the attacks. The level of frustration with the CIA and Petraeus had led several top Republican lawmakers to consider calling for his resignation in late October.

OT: (Can it be OT in the OWT?) If you search for semi-auto rifles
on cheaperthandirt.com, you will find almost nothing available in the
.223/5.56 and .30/7.whatever NATO calibres.

Slickguns.com has many such rifle deals listed in the past day. I've already got my evil black guns, though I did order a .22 pistol...

I'm hoping I'm calmed down by Thanksgiving, which I have to get through with my union teacher sister in law. The one who's been bitching because she has to pay a whopping 20% of the free retirees health insurance that she gets for herself AND her husband. While my insurance, which I pay myself, has skyrocketed.

It would be a bit awkward if I tell her to fuck off right after we say grace for Thanksgiving dinner.

78 Our Spring actually started in Spring for a change, our Summer
was one of the most weather-perfect in long years of memory, and this
Autumn was superb leaf-peeping for weeks.



I ran the Boston Marathon in April this year it was hot as hell, I left rainy California, couldn't wait to get back after 90 degree heat with 75 humidity, god it was horrible. I could not believe you could get that weather up in the Northeast. I was just glad I didn't end up going to New York.

88 Food like this will be a fond memory when you're eating MREs if you got 'em, or rice and venison if you're lucky enough to not have been killed by the eaters or the radiation near the cities.

In other news, Aim Surplus has shiny 62 gr Danish M855 .223 in 300-round bricks for $125 ea if you buy 3. It's a little high, but then again, the Wolf stuff really is kinda dirty in an AR's direct gas impingement system... probably works just fine in one of those .223 AKs. Get it while you can.

Good luck and God Bless.

You need to find a way to weave it into grace. Something subtle like "And we thank you, Father, for the bounty you have bestowed upon us. Bounty such as the taxes I pay that allow certain family members to enjoy nearly free health insurance while granting to me the blessing of paying for that and for my own which has now become nearly unaffordable. I beseech Thee to grant upon my family great good health as we cannot afford to be ill since all our money is going for taxes to pay other family members' insurance." Something like that.

Honestly, I think we will just peter along with maybe 1%, 2% growth for quarter after quarter. We may have a negative quarter or two. There is a lot of entrepreneurial *spirit* out there but it is constantly being suffocated by government (especially ObamaCare) so it will struggle to breathe for life, but it won't be entirely snuffed out. So by this time in 2016, I predict that the GDP growth rate will be exactly 2.13% but our debt will be $22 trillion. I wish I were wrong but I don't think I am.

Posted by: chemjeff at November 09, 2012 10:16 PM (d/5qf)

109 The food pictures as well as the fact that the sausage picture goes last in the line up reminds me of that headline they've got at Hotair about men being too fat if they can't see their sausage without checking out the mirror.

I have the perfect recipe for lemon bars:


1. Get in car.

2. Drive approximately a mile into town.

3. Park (or if you're me attempt to parallel park and you can totally walk to the curb from there).

4. Get out of car.

5. Enter local bakery.

6. Buy all the lemon bars.


This is foolproof.

Thanks for the tip. Everybody has been pretty cool to the "newb", but I'm being as polite as I know how, all things considered. And flaming is really not in my nature.

169 143 T-bird,

You're right to a degree.

The thing is we are without a doubt wealthy because of the prospect of gain and mobility, and our resources.

Obama is destroying all 3.

It'll be fun. I am slowly making my peace with stopping the game in my life on trying to gain. I started out in my memory as a child of some means when my grandpa had custody, to poverty with mom, to means with dad to being on my own at 15.

When alone money had little to do with my happiness, BUT since marriage and especially parenthood I cannot deny the joy gains gave me in the sharing of them.

The boy is 13 and I have kept him from want in my life through his mom and my work.

leaving is hard but the US needs hard love.

I have been having quite a lot of fun reviewing my hurricane apocalypse performance; dramatically overstated. i t was only a week in the dark and it was in the city - which is good and bad - but it is interesting to see where my plans for emergencies were adequate and inadequate.

Anyway, forewarned is forearmed. If you thnk things are gong to get worse in any way than they are today you are remiss if you do not take steps to prepare for something less desirable. You do not need a bunker and a decade of supplies, you aslo do not need everything all at once but you should have a plan to get more secure and improve your position every month going forward.

We are all competitors, that is not to sya we must destroy our foe but even your best friend growing up if you're near 40 was your pacesetter.

228 Here is the problem with Ice Skating. I was real good at it when I was a lad. Played hockey constantly growing up. You fall down or crash into the board and you get up and dust yourself off and continue on. Now that I am almost 50, I no longer look good or feel good on skates. I can still do it but it is a lot more difficult. If you fall down it is A LOT harder to get back up as well.

A lot will have to do with whether the wife gets a new billet or walking papers.

The American people have said 'balance the budget crisis on the US military's back."

If we lose everything quick I'll either limp to Ohio or louisiana/texas....
if i have time to plan the North Dakota/Idaho area to lay the groundwork to go back to Alberta.

I need to make a fallback position for the people I lvoe here in the US for when Barky throws his tantrums on why he can't make the unicorn work.

It ain't gonna be pretty.

okay, that's good. It's good you found out before you wasted all your time, right?

I once took a knife skills class that was more or a less some guy doing a cheesy sales comedy routine and then the guy taught you how to make a swan from an apple with a paring knife. I would have been annoyed but I got to keep the paring knife -- that was probably worth the price of the class.

remember Transylvanian Velma? well, she has invited me to go ice skating tomorrow. of course I said yes.

now,
i have never been ice skating, and I have only been roller skating a
few times, and that was many years ago when I was a kid.

is it fun, or am I in line to break a few bones?


Posted by: chemjeff at November 09, 2012 10:23 PM (d/5qf)

you are not going to have any fun. on the positive side you are going to have an opportunity to demonstrate you sense of humor - especially your self-deprecating humor, and good nature.

That's when you turn by crossing your outside foot in front of and slightly inside your inside foot. There is much opportunity for peril. As opposed to just sort of leaning to the left and turning your skates as you shuffle along -- which should be the preferred beginners way.

251 Speaking of deadbeats who live off the dole. The couple who live next door to me are on "disability". Interestingly, they seem perfectly healthy. When I had the cement cap on my chimney repaired the female told me that the male could do that kind of work for me. She actually thinks I would pay a lazy, half wit doper to work on my roof.

Anyway their electricity was turned off because they didn't pay their bill, what with going to the casino and all. So now they run a noisy generator all the time. Aren't those things kind of expensive to run? You need to buy fuel for them. My electric bill, if I don't run the air conditioner, is 30 something dollars a month. And I'm careless about turning lights and the tv off.

258 How bad, seriously, do we think it's going to get?

The worst case scenerio is very bad. Monetary collapse, riots, rebellion, repression etc.

The mild case is Japan. A decade or two of no growth at all.

Somewhere between seems obvious. I'm really thinking 15% admitted unemployment by next Christmas with very high inflation, although it could come sooner. The thing I cannot predict is at what point we really run out of money. People has tolerated the high unemployment because UI and other government benefits have had it at least survivable but with the deficits we are running, how long can we keep paying out?

Smokey the Bear heads
into the autumn woods
with a red can of gasoline
and a box of wooden matches.

His ranger's hat is cocked
at a disturbing angle.

His brown fur gleams
under the high sun
as his paws, the size
of catcher's mitts,
crackle into the distance.

He is sick of dispensing
warnings to the careless,
the half-wit camper,
the dumbbell hiker.

He is going to show them
how a professional does it.

283 I'll be remembering Veteran's Day and the heroes of Benghazi and other conflicts


Just A Common Soldier
by A. Lawrence Vaincourt

He was getting old and paunchy and his hair was falling fast,
And he sat around the Legion, telling stories of the past
Of a war that he had fought in and the deeds that he had done,
In his exploits with his buddies; they were heroes, every one

And tho' sometimes, to his neighbors, his tales became a joke,
All his Legion buddies listened, for they knew whereof he spoke
But we'll hear his tales no longer for old Bill has passed away,
And the world's a little poorer, for a soldier died today

He will not be mourned by many, just his children and his wife,
For he lived an ordinary and quite uneventful life
Held a job and raised a family, quietly going his own way,
And the world won't note his passing, though a soldier died today

When politicians leave this earth, their bodies lie in state,
While thousands note their passing and proclaim that they were great.
Papers tell their whole life stories, from the time that they were young,
But the passing of a soldier goes unnoticed and unsung

Is the greatest contribution to the welfare of our land
A guy who breaks his promises and cons his fellow man?
Or the ordinary fellow who, in times of war and strife,
Goes off to serve his Country and offers up his life?

A politician's stipend and the style in which he lives
Are sometimes disproportionate to the service that he gives.
While the ordinary soldier, who offered up his all,
Is paid off with a medal and perhaps, a pension small

It's so easy to forget them for it was so long ago
That the old Bills of our Country went to battle, but we know
It was not the politicians, with their compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom that our Country now enjoys

Should you find yourself in danger, with your enemies at hand,
Would you want a politician with his ever-shifting stand?
Or would you prefer a soldier, who has sworn to defend
His home, his kin and Country and would fight until the end?

He was just a common soldier and his ranks are growing thin,
But his presence should remind us we may need his like again.
For when countries are in conflict, then we find the soldier's part
Is to clean up all the troubles that the politicians start

If we cannot do him honor while he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage at the ending of his days
Perhaps just a simple headline in a paper that would say,
Our Country is in mourning, for a soldier died today.

I'll figure out a way to get to a range and try some stuff out/learn safety, etc. Taking notes on people's suggestions. I'm thinking a handgun and at least one bigger weapon (but could do shotgun and semi) I have money saved, which will probably be worth a lot less soon, so that'll help. Also considering food supplies, and exit routes to get out of urban area, if need be. It doesn't take much to turn this city to chaos as it is.

I'm hoping this isn't necessary, but I'd like to be prepared.

Kings 2:23-24

"From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered at him. “Get out of here, baldy!” they said. “Get out of here, baldy!” 24He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys."

319 On a personal note, I think that as long as my current main employer stays solvent, I'm safe from actual penury. I think I'm nearly irreplaceable in the current job market unless I really piss off a Board Member or do something that kills a patient. They just don't make new mainframe sysprogs anymore and the ones that exist are retiring faster than the slots for them.

A couple of decades ago, everyone decided that the mainframe was dead so no one trains for it, yet the dinosaur just keeps lumbering along.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

370 Before I go ....

RushBabe, is this the type of Psalm you were thinking of?

Psa 37:1 A Psalm of David.
Do not fret because of evildoers, Be not envious toward wrongdoers.


Psa 37:2 For they will wither quickly like the grass And fade like the green herb.


Psa 37:3 Trust in the LORD and do good; Dwell in the land and [fn]cultivate faithfulness.


Psa 37:4 Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.


Psa 37:5 Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.


Psa 37:6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light And your judgment as the noonday.


Psa 37:7 [fn]Rest in the LORD and wait [fn]patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.


Psa 37:8 Cease from anger and forsake wrath; Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing.


Psa 37:9 For evildoers will be cut off, But those who wait for the LORD, they will inherit the land.


Psa 37:10 Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more; And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there.


Psa 37:11 But the humble will inherit the land And will delight themselves in abundant prosperity.


Psa 37:12 The wicked plots against the righteous And gnashes at him with his teeth.


Psa 37:13 The Lord laughs at him, For He sees his day is coming.


Psa 37:14 The wicked have drawn the sword and bent their bow To cast down the afflicted and the needy, To slay those who are upright in conduct.


Psa 37:15 Their sword will enter their own heart, And their bows will be broken.


Psa 37:16 Better is the little of the righteous Than the abundance of many wicked.


Psa 37:17 For the arms of the wicked will be broken, But the LORD sustains the righteous.


Psa 37:18 The LORD knows the days of the [fn]blameless, And their inheritance will be forever.


Psa 37:19 They will not be ashamed in the time of evil, And in the days of famine they will have abundance.


Psa 37:20 But the wicked will perish; And the enemies of the LORD will be like the [fn]glory of the pastures, They vanish—like smoke they vanish away.


Psa 37:21 The wicked borrows and does not pay back, But the righteous is gracious and gives.


Psa 37:22 For those blessed by Him will inherit the land, But those cursed by Him will be cut off.


Psa 37:23 The steps of a man are established by the LORD, And He delights in his way.


Psa 37:24 When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, Because the LORD is the One [fn]who holds his hand.


Psa 37:25 I have been young and now I am old, Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken Or his [fn]descendants begging bread.


Psa 37:26 All day long he is gracious and lends, And his [fn]descendants are a blessing.


Psa 37:27 Depart from evil and do good, [fn]So you will abide forever.


Psa 37:28 For the LORD loves [fn]justice And does not forsake His godly ones; They are preserved forever, But the [fn]descendants of the wicked will be cut off.


Psa 37:29 The righteous will inherit the land And dwell in it forever.


Psa 37:30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, And his tongue speaks justice.


Psa 37:31 The law of his God is in his heart; His steps do not slip.


Psa 37:32 The wicked spies upon the righteous And seeks to kill him.


Psa 37:33 The LORD will not leave him in his hand Or let him be condemned when he is judged.


Psa 37:34 Wait for the LORD and keep His way, And He will exalt you to inherit the land; When the wicked are cut off, you will see it.


Psa 37:35 I have seen a wicked, violent man Spreading himself like a luxuriant [fn]tree in its native soil.


Psa 37:36 Then [fn]he passed away, and lo, he was no more; I sought for him, but he could not be found.


Psa 37:37 Mark the [fn]blameless man, and behold the upright; For the man of peace will have a [fn]posterity.


Psa 37:38 But transgressors will be altogether destroyed; The [fn]posterity of the wicked will be cut off.


Psa 37:39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; He is their strength in time of trouble.


Psa 37:40 The LORD helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, Because they take refuge in Him.

any advice on proper ice skating attire?

Wait, ....what? Jeans worked just fine for 18 years growing up. A pair of wicking long johns are good. The skin tight Thinsulates work well for real cold. I did use an old nomex Flight Suit I stole off Dad for awhile. Add Goalie mask and presto,..... Jason!

402 How bad..?

What others haven't touched upon with their answers is the probable effects this has on our enemies and competitors. All the answers were about our domestic situation with no other stressors than economic, cultural, and political.

However, militarily we are facing a severe threat at the same time that anti-military ideologues have gotten self validation of the most narcotic sort. A second term for a hard left socialist activist demagogue. And Leftists believe that Theory trumps Data.

We will be at a huge risk - not because of the actual reduction of our military capability - which is coming - but because of the accurate perception by our enemies that the US is hobbled for the next four years or more. Strategic planning is being done in foreign capitals today that will be likely to directly affect our allies - soon - and may affect our own soil.

They know that our leadership is delusional. They will take advantage of it and strike whomever they wish no matter what the Administration might trumpet as guarantees. Obama has already signaled that Israel is a target. He's signaled that Poland can be gobbled up along with Georgia and the Ukraine.
Then we'll get nuked.
Probably.

I think that Mitt Romney Paul Ryan did just fine.
They were maybe a little too decent. Too polite. But the reason TFG got re-elected is because
the monopoly the MFM has over the “undecided” voter. Why don’ the Koch Bros.
and Trumpy start a real Conservative network (because Fox really isn’t).

And BTW, my favorite post of the week, went something like:

“Look, if we've learned one thing from this election it's
that the single women of America are sex-obsessed freaks whose brains reside in
their ‘lady-parts’.”

Petraeus was head of the CIA. The C.I.freakin' A.
So, let's assume, for the sake of brevity, that he was, indeed, doing the mattress mambo with his "biographer". And, let's also assume that she was digging a little too deep in the "if I tell ya, I'm gonna have to kill ya" kind of emails that he obviously had far too many of.
Again. The CIA.
So why didn't he have the little scrunt "disappeared"?
Isn't that part and parcel of the position description of the CIA???

Oh, that video was enthralling. Hagee rattled off some Biblical passages that sounded like they included a lot of names, but he says those names were really referring to countries and that the new Caliphate crew in the M.E. is going down as well as Russia and Germany (Germany does $4B of trade with Iran per year). He also said Israel was prophesied tobe on its own, meaning the U.S. isn't a super power any longer (or that JEF was re-elected!).

455 another awesome thing about the bible is the many different ways it can be read, and that anyone of any age can 'get' its meaning.

as a child you can read it like a sort of comic book-esque adventure.

scientists can read into it for help in studies.

the layman can find alot in it about morality, and general self help.

the philosopher can find wisdom in it and the artist can construct different meanings pertaining to its verses.

the older i get, the more i realize that the good book is itself is probably the greatest piece of 'art' ever written. just my 2 cents worffff

460 He's already used the BATF to force illegal extra information rules on gun stores along the border.

I would imagine that excise taxes on weapons and ammunition will be the first step. They'll be included in some humonguous tax bill that no one will read.

Next will be a Federal requirement that all ammunition sales be required to be signed for with Photo ID being logged. (the irony)

This will allow a follow up seizure detail to be able to fine tune where and who they go to first.

There are many ways to dodge around the 2nd amendment limitations because we've allowed reasonable limitations we've opened the door to any limitations that are deemed reasonable by the state.

Once the UN Treaty is signed (and approved by the Democrat controlled and the emasculated filibusterless Republican Senate) they will then have all the excuse they need to enforce whatever laws they wish. Oh there'll be lawsuits and they'll go on for years but like Obamacare; "It's the law of land" thinking will allow the confiscations and the concomitant violations of privacy and civil rights to proceed in the meantime.

in my opinion, revelations is a warning if the world chooses tyranny and decides to go against israel. its not stated as fact (we can avoid it) but what will happen if the planet decides to fuck up. its our choice, but we KNOW the consequence beforehand. its a beautifully written final book in the bible.

The worst case scenerio is very bad. Monetary collapse, riots, rebellion, repression etc.

The mild case is Japan. A decade or two of no growth at all.

Somewhere between seems obvious. I'm really thinking 15% admitted unemployment by next Christmas with very high inflation, although it could come sooner.



I think we will see 9-11% unemployment by April. It seems that a few companies are already shedding people, and given the realities of ObamaCare, many more companies are not far behind.

I think ObamaCare will unravel everything. Large companies will start to cancel benefit plans, and a lot of people will see a lot of pain: the law says healthcare insurance is required, and nobody can afford it.

This points to 2014 being "2010 on steroids".

We just need to (at the very least):

1) Talk sense to the Paulistinians and other "protest" / "Stay-at-home" idiots ... they're the reason we're tracking dogshit everywhere. Rant all you want, but when the 'R' candidates are finalized, VOTE for THEM.

2) No more "Powered by Jeebus" candidates. The Scripture speaks words about "pride" ... heed them.

3) Endure ... like chicken salad (thanks, but I do not need pre-digested food), this too shall pass.

There are shops that carry the ornaments year round, but the first of December (and not before, God bless the Poles for being sane about Christmas commercialism) the malls are decorated, and the ornament shops set up. Even their version of Home Depot has Radko, and they are all gorgeous-pine cones, Santas, snowmen, animals.

The Embassy used to sponsor a Radko sale, with Christopher Radko hosting, funds going to several orphanages in Warsaw. He would make special ornaments for this sale, and they were no more than 10 dollars.

Needless to say, I love Christmas ornaments too, but after living in Poland, I can't even look at the plastic ones anymore.

We're on the Zero for Zer-O plan here. No holiday spending. None. Not a dime.

Also, no dining out. And no shopping at local retailers beyond the basics.

I am printing up on business card stock some neat little notices which say,

"We have been happy and faithful patrons of your establishment in the past. Due to the changed economic and tax circumstances following this year's federal and state elections, though, we regrettably have been forced to curtail our patronage of your business. And do not expect to be returning. We wish that it were otherwise, and wish you the best in future."

I'm going to give a few to my likeminded friend who has been responding to all sales inquires for the last couple of days by saying to the salesman, "The voters just decided to raise my taxes. They didn't give me a raise of income to match. I'm not buying a damn thing."

Anybody think we'll go back to the Carter era generics? The products that were simply labeled with big black letters that just said stuff like TOILET PAPER or CIGARETTES?

I think Obama would send free ink to the printers to avoid it if he had to. But it seems like the day might be coming.

522 Speaking of the embassy, I called them the day that plane crashed with all their government on it. I was so horrified, it really hit me hard. The lady was so sweet, and we both ended up crying on the phone.

Funny you mention that-my kids were saying that they saw some mention that an investigation of that plane indicated that bombs were found. I haven't seen anything in the regular news blogs (Drudge, here, Townhall, Breitbart). My kids have tons of Polish friends that they still keep up with, and that plane crash really affected them.
Thanks for calling the embassy when that happened. That probably meant a great deal to them-especially since the administration had screwed them over like they did.

526 If enough micromessaging of that sort goes around, Barky isn't going to enjoy his second term very much.

Our local grocery stores give you a bag credit of a few cents if you bring in your own brown-paper bags. They always ask if you want the bag credit to go to you or to the local food bank. Considering the food bank recipients are most likely Barky voters and messicans, my new reply is,"I'm going to let Mr. Obama take care of that."

I would've said it today, but the cashier was 4 ft. tall and 4 ft. wide and quite menacing.

re: parallel parking
Used to live in Chicago. Got a lot of practice, and got really good at it. Always made it first try.
Two rules. Pull up almost exactly parallel to the car you're going to park behind. Then, when you back in, you almost cannot turn the wheel too much. Get the back corner of the car that's going to be against the curb, to the curb, asap. Then completely turn the steering wheel back. 1, 2, 3

Dude, why do you assume that with 55 votes that they can't get 11 Republicans to vote for it? Especially if it is worded so that it APPEARS not to interfere with the 2nd amendment?

After approval, it's off to the courts to get it actual implementation defined or redefined.

After Roberts' decision, how comfortable are you with relying on a complacent and compliant (and potentially blackmailable) Republican minority holding firm across the board?

I'm not. I'll assume the worst and be prepared for it.

Howdy.

Finally got a day when I wasn't working and could be conscious. Then I get a call from the storage place my employer refers to as the 'warehouse.' They shipped 16 PCs to the place and there is no room for them in the locker. I already have one small station wagon, one Ford Explorer, and a good chunk of my living room full of excess equipment from banks that ordered far too much stuff for their refresh.

In previous years someone like me was sent around to do site surveys and figure out what the banks should get. Worked pretty well as far as I know but this year they decided it would save money if they just sent forms to the bank managers to fill out. Apparently, the typical bank manager cannot follow simple instructions or count in the two-digit range once they run out of fingers.

I was told Monday that I'd be able to ship out a bunch of stuff today but my last contact from HQ said they still don't have an address for me to send it to. On top of this, they want an inventory down to the serial number level, meaning I have to pull EVERYTHING out of the locker.

So tomorrow is going to be interesting.

Frustrating as it is, it has been a life saver. If were to continue through February instead of ending with this month I'd have my debts completely paid off. As it is, I'll be looking for short term contract work in December. I don't want to take anything long term because CES is coming up in January and working that pays pretty well in addition to getting a free trip to CES. Major bonus to a tech geek like me.

The contract tech sector has been very busy recently. I've felt strange having to ignore so many good job listings. I strongly suspect a lot of companies are rushing to get some stuff done before the end of the year and certain new laws kick in to make the work more expensive.

I'm ready to wait it out. Even if I lost my internet connection I have enough video, books, and audio books backlogged to last me several lean years. Damned if anyone in Hollywood is getting a penny from me if it isn't a direct payment to an individual I find deserving.

572 "2) No more 'Powered by Jeebus' candidates. The Scripture speaks words about 'pride' ... heed them."

A complete ban on all socons strikes me as uncomfortably maximalist. Things will be fine if we are simply able to filter out the vocal idiot socon subset. There are some calm and quiet socons with good message discipline, who are able to function in the modern media environment without a gaffe a minute.

I've been ranting nonstop about socons since the Akin disaster kicked off, but frankly, I'm fine with having socons in the party. They're a key part of the base. And I'm happy to have them stand for office, but we HAVE to have unified unthreatening messaging about certain topics, and they have to stick to it.

Unfortunately, unified unthreatening messaging only works in certain cases.

I'm pretty sure that it would have been possible to come up with a prearranged, prememorized, focus group tested answer for Mourdock that would not have sounded, as his bungled extemporaneous response did, like he thought God intended certain rapes. He doesn't actually think that.

Unfortunately, there is no way to come up with a different and better phrasing for what Akin said -- because Akin MEANT what he said. It wasn't a mangled version of a reasonable position. It was an accurate rendering of his actual views, which are bughouse nuts.

The worst is the check scanners/stampers. This is the first year we've had to replace them. In the past it was left to the people who had the day to day break/fix contract and our sole responsibility was to make sure they worked after the PC had been replaced/imaged.

But they wanted to install a new model throughout this year and so it was added to our inventory. This was good for the techs because it added time on the clock to make up for some streamlining of the process that eliminated some past annoyances.

But I'm having cases where I'm summoned to a branch that has 24 workstation but ordered 38 Paninis. (The maker of the scanner model.) This is especially bad on a Thursday night because several of the leads don't live locally and fly home the following morning for the weekend. This mean all excess equipment must be removed from the site. Now, if somebody else is short on the same item I can just bring them over there and be rid of them. Which is often the case with PCs, monitors, and Addmasters. (Receipt printers using an HP inkjet engine.) But not Paninis. I've got lots and lots of Paninis. A metric shit ton of Paninis.

Special added attraction: Another added responsibility this year is making sure all of the branches have brackets for the PC to sit in off the floor. And again, because no site surveys were done this year (and it wasn't something we gathered data on previously) the info on how many brackets were needed was wildly inaccurate. When they finished San Diego County they had a massive stock remaining that got shipped up to sit in my warehouse and hopefully get used. I have hundreds of the damn things and have only need perhaps three dozen to date. They come in boxes of a dozen that are horribly flimsy. They pretty much disintegrate if opened and a few removed, or just left alone.

This means the damn thing cannot be stacked properly, even if most of them weren't in substitute boxes left over form other equipment. So the mound of brackets is eating up about 70% of the warehouse. These are the items I was promised I'd be able to ship off a portion of today. If I just had a reasonable ten or so boxes none of the other stuff would be as much of a problem.

But I'm sure I'll miss the gig intensely that first time in December when a week passes with no paycheck. At least I have some e-book work to get back to that may produce some revenue some day.

611 chemjeff, if you check this tomorrow before you go skating, a few words of advice.

Rink skates are crap. They're never sharp enough, but you'll just have to deal with that part. You can, however, at least make sure you get a good fit. Unlike shoes, your toes in an ice skate should just brush the front of the boot. Skates are meant to be very form-fitting. And I second the advice to tighten them way down when you lace them, especially around the ankles. The ankles absolutely should not be loose at all.

When you skate, bend your knees, not your back. You actually want to use a position similar to (of all things) sitting to use the toilet, or doing squats. Don't push that to the extreme in figure skates, though, or the toepicks will eat you alive since it rocks you forward on the skates.. Works great on hockey skates. I really can't emphasize enough -- bend your knees, it will make a huge difference.

Good luck, and have fun! I miss playing hockey ...

Just as NRA warned would happen, following the election, the Obama administration has moved forward with its plans to support a United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. On Wednesday November 7, the U.S. Mission to the U.N. made clear its support for renewed ATT negotiations, casting a vote in favor of resolution A/C.1/67/L.11. The resolution calls for a "Final United Nations Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty" to be held in New York City from March 18-28.

No. It's subcontracting for a big IT firm that works with this major bank. The leads go all over the country installing new servers and such with a crew of local minions. I've been doing it for about five year when it comes into the Orange/LA/Ventura County region, and they've used me for a lot of side work like the site surveys and installing stuff that wasn't available in time for the refresh but after the leads have moved on to another region.

Actually, I'm not sure but Dell may have blackballed me. I got dumped from a big deployment at an insurance titan because I wasn't keeping up with their desired pace. Of course, my work was being measure against guy working the mail room with dozens of identical machines with almost no user data on it, while I was dealing with VPs with tens of gigabytes of files they swore would start WWIII if any of it were lost. One VP had this Java app for spying on her minions that was incredibly finicky about how it was installed and what JVM was on the machine. Plus she had other apps that required a more recent JVM that wasn't compatible with the other app. So much for write once, run everywhere.

I brought in my own switch and four-way KVM to facilitate multi-tasking but there was no way I was going to finish migrations at the rate of guys dealing with generic workstations. So I was dumped from that project. It might also have hurt that I didn't just let it go by when the guy in charge announced one day that Israeli "is an apartheid country."

I've applied to other Dell contract jobs since then and haven't been hired but considering the number of contract jobs I've never heard back about from a wide range of companies it isn't really an indicator of anything but being a small fish in a overpopulated tech pond.

.....and, of course, his collection of kittehs.


Posted by: cthulhu at November 10, 2012 01:13 AM (kaalw)


well Uncle Horse is finally sound. He and the kittehs have had a little problem with a raccoon! Grim has decided the .22 is the only answer i had to sadly agree since i cant afford to have it threaten the kittens.


Cecil is FINALLY healthy. Turns out he was poisoned but lucky. the unlucky ones died. about 6 of them. I have four remaining kittens and since things got stressful with the election i have spent my afternoons during and after horse chores watching them play. The one mommy Ditto is completely tame now and has become a total love bug. Cecil is letting me pet him now. Heidi, and the two Ginger kittens are more reserved but watch me, and come running when they see me, but still keep a distance from strangers. Hilariously, they will try to climb in Grim's pants and follow him around the farm, because he protects them from the skunks and raccoons and they seem to have caught on to the fact.

now more vexing news is that Bebe's Boobs Destroy got in a car accident tonight and her car may have been totaled, she was in the ER to have her neck and back looked at, last we talked tonight and she was in some room, after triage with some crazy dude... She just texted me saying Nothing is broken, but shes got whiplash. DAmmit.
but thats all i know, unless you want to know about Supernatural, since i have been watching quite a bit of that!

actually she is and shes earning the stars in her crown. Shes headed straight over to the hospital to spend the night with her mom. Things are getting really bad with her, ad i dont know how much longer it can go on. Seems like poor beeb is getting it from all directions.
she and i keep in contact texting and i send her nice little pix of cats and stuff to cheer her up. Cecil and Spooky are pretty stinkin cute. Uncle horse is mad hes still laid upbut he should be officially ALL BETTER by monday when he gets his feets trimmed. Hes Beeb's fave, and so is Cecil, so its cheered her considerably that they got better when everything else she prayed for didnt.

Speaking of evil...You'll love this.
Ever hear of Root Boy Slim?
Foster MCKenzie III. From Asheville, NC. White. Preppy. Got kicked out of a bunch of DC preps, including Sidwell Friends. Went to Yale on a scholarship.Was a DKEwith GWB. Majored in AfricanAmerican Studies ...in '67.? Started a band. Root Boy Slim and the Sex Change Band.
Band members boasted that they were never invited for return engagements. The year after MacKenzie graduated, they returned to the DKE house during Yale's homecoming. Bush, who since their departure had become president of DKE, threw them out and banned them from the house.
"Latter-day satiric genius or obnoxious fat guy? You be the judge. Suffice it to say that he was a glitch in the great rock roll electrocardiogram, but his sophomoric, blues-based mayhem was sometimes funny, even when it was obvious and contrived.:
I saw them '89ish at Charlotte, NC's DoubleDoor Inn(great joint).

It's good to hear that Uncle Horse is on the right side of things. I still seethe that the people who had him had let him get to such a state that putting him down was a serious option.

On a somewhat serious note -- can't horses deal with raccoons? I know they're sneaky, street-savvy (one night I saw one that waited for a "walk" signal to cross near my home), and mean little SOBs, but wouldn't a horse just stomp one?

I had originally thought that your ranch might be near Tujunga, where I spent a summer with a gf during college. At one point, one of the family dogs was poisoned by a neighbor and died as we were trying to get it to the vet. It's an awful, awful thing to know that people can be so horrible.

As far as climbing into Grim's pants -- it's the Alpha Male thing. You didn't think that just applied to humans, did you?

I haven't forgotten the last reason I've been thinking and praying for Bebe (and was thinking of getting an update), but now there's THIS. It sort of leaves you at a sputtering WTF? Lame though it is, let her know that she's in our thoughts and that we hope things start getting better for her soon.

Not lame. Knowing you all care gets her through. i know when it was hairy with Ellie and Uncle Horse and i was losing sleep over them it was a comfort knowing Morons possibly more virtuous than i were praying for them. The death of both parents is hitting her hard. Theres noting more awful than seeing the people who were your bedrock of comfort all your life turn mortal. Watching my foster dad die was bad enough. Losing my grandparents was hell since we were close. I am not looking forward to losing my parents frail and difficult though they are. I wish i could be more help to Beeb, but i havent done this before like she is with my parents, so i know bupkiss. But my mom has been cool and has offered to talk with her when im stumped.

And the left clearly represents Sodom and Gomorrah whether they won outright or were able to get enough dead and illegal votes and throw away enough legitimate votes to finish us off. The left ran on the Sodom and Gomorrah plank and leftist districts deserve the treatment they support.

I believe the people voted for Mitt in a landslide.

I doubt that though I retain an open mind about how much fraud actually occurred. But, when you have black box voting with no paper trail (anonymous ballots) then you have to have a supreme level of trust in your population and institutions. I lost all trust, let alone "supreme" in both some time ago. But, there's not really much that can be done. It's the same institutions that would be doing the investigations. With anonymous ballots, the only security one can have is to insure that non-voters aren't allowed to get a ballot but even after that no one can follow anything since it's all anonymous and people don't even get private receipts to certify their votes for recounts.

Well ... I tried to explain to people years ago that Barky wasn't eligible and that that was probably going to be our last best chance to get rid of him, legally (in whatever sense of that there was left in this nation). But, so many on the right were too scared to ask for simple proof and broach the argument that dual citizenship negates natural born citizenship, whenever and however it is obtained. So ... we are brought low and have very little recourse as the Rule of Law has been totally decimated over the past 4 years, including the GOP's collusion in establishing that "empathy" is now a legitimate main criterion for a judge or justice (in direct opposition to over three millenia of tradition and the very foundation of Western jurisprudence) while Benedickhead Roberts made a total mockery of law and logic with his asinine creation of the "tax" loophole for the feral government to do anything it wants and demand anything wants of individuals - and the feral government can even argue that it isn't a tax while it's doing it!

Oh well. America had a good run, but it's over. Stolen election or not, the run is finished. It's time for other plans - and those who voted for Barky deserve the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah, which is what they voted for. 92% ... 99% ... a distinction without a difference. It's all far too much.

The main thing to do is to get ones priorities in order.

When my grandfather was dying, I kept getting conflicting information about his status, his prospects, what was going on.....and I finally said, "screw it" and red-eyed it out to Columbus, rented a car and started driving to Parkersburg, WV. There were two major hospitals in town, I guessed the right one on the first try. Bluffed my way in to see him in the ICU, and he was mostly unresponsive, so I just sat with him.

Several hours later, after visiting hours officially started, my grandmother called the ICU to explain why she wasn't there -- turns out, she was in the ER five floors down. The ICU guys told me and I went down to see her (she didn't know I was coming). When I walked in to the ER to help take care of my grandma, it was like the clouds parted and a ray of sunlight shone down upon me, with a deep echo-ey voice saying "you done good."


The first thing I did was make sure my poor, frail granny was stabilized herself, because she was working herself into a state where she was scarcely better off than my grandfather. There is a natural inclination for the healthy to "lend their strength" to the infirm -- but they need to ensure that their own health is priority #1. Once laid low themselves, they can be no good to anyone and are unable to provide more aid and comfort at all.

Once grandma was doing better, I could tell my grandpa that she was ok -- which seemed to markedly lessen his distress. Even though it seems a bit contrary, strictly prioritizing my grandmother's health ended up as a win-win-win-win all around.....even though I could have gone all "bleeding-heart" and let her suffer more to stand vigil with my grandfather.

It's a time for tough choices, and caring ones....and you'll only know it's right if you can look back with pride on things some years later. But it's what it is.

But we would never riot or burn our neighborhoods down, so it's all good. Holder and Soros' Secretary of States Project have it covered.

I agree that
the fix was in. Not just in FL. West supposedly has a pretty good chunk of change
to fight with. Reince ought to be raisin’ fight money for all the “swing states”.
I’m supposed to believe that Wisconsin,
which voted in a Republican Governor, and thenafter hundreds of millions of
dollars poured into a recall effort by the unions and communists in which the
Republicans won BY A LARGER MARGIN than the original election, went from
SOLIDLY Republican as of June 2012 (the recall election) to a MAJORITY Democrat
state in November 2012. Really?Show me
a verifiable independent vote count and then I might start buying all the
"analysis" BS being pumped out by the talking heads. Until I can see
actual proof of an honest vote count, all the analysis based on unverifiable
voting numbers is just more smoke and mirrors. C'mon, this election was RIGGED.

Now that West is turning things around (President Lincoln, on Grant: "I cannot spare this man -- he fights!") in his own election, he may yet show up The Machine. It would be a supreme irony if the massive effort against Romney were poisoned by the blowback from the West afterthought.

Anybody think we'll go back to the Carter era generics? The products that were simply labeled with big black letters that just said stuff like TOILET PAPER or CIGARETTES?


Late in the thread, but:

The Generics never really went away. The store brand, ie. Kroger branded, started to appear as a generic alternative, sold slightly higher, but stocked as a Generic. Heh......yeah I remember those. Never tried the cigs and I refused to try the "BEER".

Drinking Rhinelander in college was as cheap as I would go. ($5.95 case-o-bottles). It's not bad beer, actually.

Some goofs at a frat (Southern Illinois U.) took an 83' Olds and painted it up like a Team Rhinelander NASCAR car. I laughed so fuckin' hard I thought I was gonna stoke out. What really made it so funny is the the paint job looked professionally done and the other sponsor logos were accurate.

I still crack up thinking about it.

Unfortunately, the problem is "I know too much". So.....George Lucas sold Lucasfilms because capital gains is getting taxed out the yin-yang after December 31......so, what do I have with unrealized capital gains? When countries go "full Argentina", they seize private retirement accounts (401K's, IRAs) in return for "guaranteed government annuities"....but withdrawals from such are taxed as ordinary income plus a 10% penalty....how much before the rates get punitive? Do I take the capital gains this year but leave the IRAs vulnerable, in hopes I can pull them out before things get too bad? Or do I eat it with the IRAs and leave the capital gains for another day?

Here's the big thing -- cash is no good.

Equities are based on a company being able to turn a profit....with Obamacare, no company with more than 50 employees will be able to turn a profit, and with "tax on the 1% over $250K", no company with fewer than 50 employees will have a profit (and you can't invest in their equities, anyway).

Bonds are based on underlying value -- but government bonds are based on nonexistent tax revenues, and corporate bonds are based on profits (as above).

Real estate values tend to be inversely correlated with interest rates, based on mortgages. If something is worth $100K, based on 3% mortgages and a rent of $300/month, then it might be worth $50K with a 6% mortgage. If you believe (as I do) that the Fed's ZIRP (Zero Interest Rate Program) is unsustainable, then you wouldn't want to invest in real estate.

If you wanted to get really speculative, you could invest in a kilo or two of a specific rare earth metal -- erbium is useful in 1550nm telecom, for instance -- but which?

And the regular bullion metals are already spiking up in price before you can go shopping for them.

So, what do you do?

i don't think anyone is claiming that voter fraud is impossible.

i think 120% turnouts, 95% breakage for obama, and phantom black voters who didn't exist during the 2010 census make it pretty clear that voter fraud exists and at some levels -- lower levels -- is practised in an organised, institutional fashion.

if you are contending that 175 thousand votes were fraudulently flipped nationwide, tho, that's a figure that's far within the margin of error and ends up being essentially inconsequential.

i'm sure there was fraud...i'm sure there was probably even some republican fraud!...but we lost this one fair and square and of our own accords.

You would think that the fact that FDR was the only individual whose actions were selfish and outrageous and repulsive enough to warrant a Constitutional amendment barring anyone from copying them would have been enough to let people know about the true nature of his Presidential tenure. No other individual American has ever warranted such unprecedented action. FDR wasn't even cold before the amendment was passed to stop anything like him from recurring. And yet, that eulogy for FDR has been so easily papered over ... Incredible, isn't it.

855 The math on the budget is horrible. Massive cuts and massive taxes...soon.

I recommend we get rid of Hollywood tax breaks and tax free muni bonds. That's how rich libs avoid taxes while making everyone else pay.

863 The long range forecasts I see say this Winter will be ~20% colder than usual but not revving up until December all along the Eastern Seaboard.
I hope so for the Sandy people. After going through 5-6 hurricanes in the last few years I feel for those folks.

Price just went up $50. I need a new rifle but I started reading a lot about the 7.62 x 25; It has a better profile than the FN 5.7 cartridge. Cheap.
I've decided I can buy both. One for fun and one for....hunting.

874 Good morning, everyone.

Now that the election is over, and I have extra room in my house, I think I'll be setting up my cutting equipment this weekend, and start working on some stones I never got around to cutting before moving. I still have about a pound of rough CZ, 50 carats of peach, and green garnets, a bunch of amethyst, some small sapphires, and spinels, and some other odds and ends....(mostly lab created stuff).

I have my eye on this stone:

The price is good...and depending on the inclusions, I should be able to cut 10 to 12 carat stone from it....as either a Portuguese Round, or a square Barion Cushion. I just have to convince the wife to let me bid on the rock. Anyway, that's my plan for the first post-election/clusterf'ck weekend!

BignJames:

I don't remember, and my book isn't handy....but I believe chromium is responsible for the green color in a lot of different gem stones, and to an extent, is likely responsible for at least some of the green in various types of garnets.

This was inevitable. From the start, Moo-Chelle has had a media cheering section -- and slavish, panting followers -- just like Choom Boy. They use the same "reasoning," too: she's so hip, so connected to Big-Time Celebrities, so adept at taking our attention away from Real Shit (the dying economy, imminent destruction in the Middle East, the end of our Constitution and so much more) and personifying the High Life (never mind who's paying for it).

Oh. And she's black, thereby freeing herself from all accountability.

If the creators of The Jeffersons had been a little more imaginative, we could have seen this on teevee decades ago. It's a sitcom, albeit one that can do infinitely more damage. Movin' on up, baby!

There is some mutant gene in many humans that makes them looooove themselves some dynastic action. Why shouldn't the Obamas become the affirmative action version of teh Kennedys?

Of course we have the Bushes, to our shame. GHWB, Dubya, and now Baby Dubya.

I just went to the store before reading this... and I bought a Pecan pie. I've still got half of it left if you want some... and you hurry.

At most twice a year I buy a pecan pie, one always near Thanksgiving... because I eat the whole thing in maybe a day.

Pecan Pie... mmmm.
