Overnight Open Thread (1-28-2013)

We're All Victor Laszlo Now

Professor Jacobson of Legal Insurrection isn't giving up:

I have not given in to all the doom and gloom, although it's hard not to.  There is a deliberate effort to declare the Republican Party, conservatives, and the Tea Party movement over.  Operation Demoralize never stops.

And often the effects of demoralization are far worse than any particular defeat. You can recover from losses but not from an internal defeat of the spirit.

And Joe Engel follows up on this:

As tempting as it is sometimes to compare our inept and feckless Republican leaders to Marshal Pétain and his Vichy toadies, that only highlights how unwarranted the demoralization is.

Because for all our despair and disappointment, life in America 2013 is hardly comparable to life in Casablanca 1942.  Those who were caught in hegemonic limbo never knew whether today was the day they'd be rounded up as one of the "usual suspects" and pay the ultimate price as an enemy of the German state.

Yet even while the movie Casablanca was being shot through the summer of '42, the Allied invasion of North Africa was being plotted, culminating that November in Morocco's liberation.

So here, be inspired.  And sing loud-louder than they do.  We're all Victor Laszlo now.

I'm shocked, shocked that demoralization is taking place in this establishment.

Quote of the Day

"Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions and laughed delightedly at his licentiousness and thought it very superior of him to acquire vast amounts of gold illicitly. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the 'new, wonderful good society' which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean 'more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.' Julius was always an ambitious villain, but he is only one man."

Attributed to Marcus Tullius Cicero but probably from a novel about him.

Prager U: Adam Carolla on the Ability to Change

And Bookworm explains her own discovery of the ability to self-change:

Believe it or not, the most important book I've ever read is Dale Carnegie's How To Win Friends and Influence People.

I picked Carnegie's book off my high school library's shelf when I was fifteen - a very awkward, unattractive fifteen-year-old, who compensated for social inferiority with a cutting wit that, while sophisticated and often funny, saw people (especially boys) backing away from me as fast as possible. How to Win Friends and Influence People was the first intimation I had that, by changing myself, I could change how people respond to me. I didn't become nicer overnight, but I made the decision then and there that I was a work in progress and that I had a lifetime responsibility to improve myself.

IRS To Regulate Tax Preparers

Based on their interpretation of an 1884 law and has already collected $100 million in 'fees'. Except a judge has just issued an injunction based on the fact that they don't actually have legal authorization to do this. Oops.

Black Holes and the 774AD Gamma Ray Burst

The Most Florida Crime Ever: Naked Carny Poops & Masturbates Amidst Gunfire

Well gunfire tends to break my fap concentration but then I'm no FL carny.

Fort Myers, Florida - Gregory Matthew Bruni, 21, [a carnival worker] is facing charges of damage to property, burglary, battery and resisting an officer. The victims told the Lee County Sheriff's Office they were inside around 6:50 p.m. when they heard noises on the roof.

They went outside and saw a naked man, later identified as Bruni, on the roof, according to a Lee County Sheriff's Office report. They said the man then jumped off the roof and onto one of the victims, knocking him down.

The man then ran into their home and pulled a 72-inch television off a living room wall, breaking it.

...The victim told investigators he yelled for his wife to get a gun as Bruni continued to thrash around the house, knocking over a wet/dry vacuum and spilling its contents on the floor. The wife fired three shots from a .38 caliber revolver at Bruni, but missed and hit a wall.

Bruni then fell to the ground and began masturbating in the living room before he ran into the victims' son's bedroom and began rubbing his face with clothing, according to the report.

9 Meanwhile, in New Jersey… A Spanking!

The Senate showdown in New Jersey is certainly becoming entertaining. When asked about Newark Mayor and crypt0-Progressive Cory Booker’s intention to run for his seat, Sen. Frank Lautenberg replied as such: “‘I have four children, I love each one of them. I can’t tell you that one of them wasn’t occasionally disrespectful, so I gave them a spanking and everything was OK,’ Lautenberg said with a smile in his first public comments since Booker announced he was considering a run for Senate.” Booker, in turn seems poised to deliver a more public spanking of his own, as he leads Lautenberg 51-30.

19 Relative to the previous thread, hubby and I are paying 2+K per month for his two daughters, aged 20 and 21, in "child support". It would be much more, were it not for an equally expensive lawyer. Dad wanting his kids to get self sufficient is very strongly disapproved of, by judges. WTF is going to happen to them, when the gravy train ends, and they are 26 years old, never having had a job? Never mind, I know the answer. We will be supporting them until we die. Luckily Obamacare will bring that about fairly quickly.

navycopjoe, the world's cutest boy was laid low by one of the variations of the flu going around. Thankfully it was the short one. He's at his dad's now but when I saw him at school today he looked back to health and ready to make mischief.


He cracks me up so much because as a lot of my friends predicted, girls like him and he has no earthly idea. It's kind of funny to watch, but as a girl I feel for the girls too. The nicegirls, not the mean ones themean ones deserve the comeuppance of not being able to wrap a boy around their finger.

78 And Joe Engel follows up on this:

As tempting as it is sometimes to compare our inept and feckless Republican leaders to Marshal Pétain and his Vichy toadies, that only highlights how unwarranted the demoralization is.

Because for all our despair and disappointment, life in America 2013 is hardly comparable to life in Casablanca 1942. Those who were caught in hegemonic limbo never knew whether today was the day they'd be rounded up as one of the "usual suspects" and pay the ultimate price as an enemy of the German state.

Yet even while the movie Casablanca was being shot through the summer of '42, the Allied invasion of North Africa was being plotted, culminating that November in Morocco's liberation.

So here, be inspired. And sing loud-louder than they do. We're all Victor Laszlo now.


So, basically, what he's saying is that we should move to a foreign country, build up our resources, enlist support, and then try to retake the United States?

I was at work in Cleveland when the Challenger blew up. My boss, who was a aviation nut and a big enthusiast came back to the lab to tell us what happened.

I remember sitting in a bar that night watching it replayed over about the umpteenth time that day, while drinking a beer with a friend. That day sucked.
Reagan gave a wonderful speech about that , though. If you never heard it, I'm sure it's somewhere on YouTube.

"High Flight"Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of EarthAnd danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirthof sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred thingsYou have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swungHigh in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flungMy eager craft through footless halls of air....Up, up the long, delirious, burning blueI’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.Where never lark, or even eagle flew —And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trodThe high untrespassed sanctity of space,- Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

On this date the crew of the shuttle Challenger were killed just seventy seconds after launch. Rest in peace brave men and women.

I remember exactly what I was doing. I was standing in G-1 AG Central Processing as a Second Liuetenant reporting into Ft. Riley, KS.


I remember what I was doing when that happened. I was at my acute care psych rotation for nursing school at Chester County Hospital. I was with my patient in thelunchroom. They had all the tv's on so the patients (a lot of whom were admitted because they tried to kill themselves) could watch the shuttle launch. We were all absolutely flabbergasted as we watched the explosion. I always wondered if any of those already fragile people succumbed later to their demons because of this trauma.

Yes. But not enough time so I'll just give you the outline:

1. Nothing lasts forever - even socialism/communism.
2. The fallacy of linear prediction. If you extrapolate today's state in a straight line beyond a few years, whatever you predict is almost certainly wrong.
3. National cultures don't change in the short or even long-term. Italians are still Italians, Germans are still Germans. Americans will still be American.
4. The American people aren't ideological - they're fickle, low information but ultimately pragmatic.
5. You may be able to predict certain events in the future but nobody can predict the future. Anyone who claims they can is bullshitting themselves and you.

No we didn't go, we did a 10 mile race in Tacoma. It was the first time ever I had a collision with another runner. Out and back course, and one of the top ten guys took the corner to sharp and ran right into me (I was staying on my side as far right as possible as we were instructed at the start of the race). I almost think I got a mild concussion, my head hit him in the chest, I saw stars and I felt like throwing up. Luckily, somehow, I didn't fall on the ground, and I mangedto finish the race. He was in the top 10 men, and he barely slowed down when he asked me if I was ok. The two guys behind me passed me when I stopped. They ended up beating me, but they waited at the finish line to make sure I was ok. I never saw the guy who ran into me again. I've been laying low the last couple of days. Have a headache and a sore neck and shoulders. Luckily, I already had a massage scheduled for tomorrow!

The problem is "the American identity" has thus far relied on a modified Anglic legal code and the integration and synthesis of disparate cultures...there is no "American" there is a hybrid....

the loyal to an ideology other than American ideal US left just decided to add 1/7th or so the US population in illegal immigrants who are not at all interested in integration and synthesis.

This is unprecedented, because to even imply they need to learn our language and adapt is "racist."

Nope. Math is still coming after us, and math has fangs that bite much deeper than any spider. Those fangs will even bite the vast swarms grazing off the green grass of the welfare state, despite the best efforts of their welfare state masters.

charged admission and became a two percenter.



One evening at closing time, the IRS came

"Have you have come this way to admire my exhibit as well?"



"No," they chided. "We've come to seize your berry, not to praise it."

227 Not too long before he died Breitbart was interviewed by a dumbass on MSNBC. The dumbass tried to trap Breitbart with strawmen and illogical nonsense and Breitbart would have none of it.

"I don't accept the premise", he said as rejected a trap question.

He threw back the questions and called them out for what they were. He would not walk on the path they set out for him. The MSNBC dumbass got nowhere.

Until all GOP and allied folks do the same thing and do it every time, the MFM will control all outcomes.

I am demoralized. Totally. I simply cannot believe what happened
in November; I expect to wake up from an exceptionally vivid dream any
time now.

What happened in November was the death of Hope, and
the death of America. The Media can govern the country now, it can
choose the candidates and it can choose the winners. It will choose
either Hillary or Joe Biden for 2016, and whichever one it chooses, will
win. There is no other path. There is no hope, hope is dead.

Guess I picked the wrong ONT, but there it is.

Mitt Romney was painted as the rich, white guy and like in the mold of the McCain's, Bushes, and Doles before him, didn't attack back. That first debate changed a lot, but Romney failed to use that momentum and played it safe.
Just know that one day this affair with big government will end, one way or another. You simply run out of other people's money and can't print enough to replace it, although they are trying very hard with helicopter Ben.

I was checking out of the barracks at NAS Memphis, on my way to NAS Oceana to begin Tomcat avionics training. I was turning in my linens and watching the launch, and when I hollered the girl doing the paperwork turned around just in time to see it all come apart. Several years later we studied the whole thing for my Aircraft Mishap Investigation class.


BTW, for those who saw Correia's video, the scrunt he was trying to remember who said the barrel shroud was the "shoulder thing that goes up" was Carolyn McCarthy (not former Congresscritter from GA, Cynthia McKinney). No surprise to me that she didn't know an AR-15 was, in fact, a rifle...that has a "shoulder thing that goes up"...


And "Casablanca" is in fact the best Bogie movie ever made (followed closely by "Key Largo"), and if you don't agree you are worse than Hitler.

257 Certainly, America has faced other dark days in her history. The difference now is that the leadership on our side is so abysmal that it's hard to feel hopeful. Pols we once had high hopes for - Palin, Christie, Rubio - have either been trashed and sullied by The Enemy or turned out to be sell-outs. Consider the parade of idiots that have either been elected or were candidates since Reagan left office. A country of 300 million - and they're the best we can do? And what is even worse - millions of our fellow Americans are OK with such mediocrities ruling them.

The characters in "Casablanca" were fighting against a tyrannical power they had not chosen. We - not us, but our dimwitted and venial and lazy fellow citizens - CHOSE the thieves, pervs, and turds who now want to run our lives. Hard not to feel demoralized.

288 Movie Themes That Rawk

Here they list five decent choices but I'm sure the horde can come up with plenty others.



I have bunches that I dig but if I had to pick five outside of the John Williams scores:

• The Mission - Theme: Ennio Morricone
The master. Nothing else to say.

• Rising Sun - Taiko Drum Opening: Seiichi Tanaka and the SF Taiko Dojo
Boring movie but this one drum track is The Awesomeness of Taiko.

• Batman (1989) - Theme: Danny Elfman
Listened to this non-stop for years. Set the standard for superhero movies (and pretty much every other Elfman soundtrack.)

• Robocop - Theme: Basil Poledouris
It sounds a leetle like the Conan theme for obvious reasons.

• Lord Of The Rings - Theme: Howard Shore

she actually is very smart, however, she has some issues and is easily frightened. fyi, the smart play after she eats you food and pees in your shoes is to let everything go because everything goes downhill from the shoe peeing. in case any of you are ever dog sitting for the weekend.

310 So, picked up my "evil gun" today, after the delay of the "out-of-state" background check.

I traded back that goofy green laser/flashlight (that for some reason I originally thought was a good idea) for a case, a sling, and the mounting gear for the bi-pod. And got $4.26 in cash back. Whoo-hoo!

I have been shopping, and there are better light/fore-grip options. And I am rethinking lasers, on that gun, altogether.

Still no ammo, to speak of, even in the "country" store.

Yes, Al, I know how you feel. I went through an agnostic phase - and found the idea that Anne Frank and her murderers are exactly in the same place - dead, with no justice in this or any any world - to be an unbearable thought. Being a Christian is hard and I'm not very good at it. Being an atheist is harder - that is, if you think through the implications.

Yes, and life in America 2013 is hardly comparable to life in Paris 1890 or Athens in whatever the hell year it was when they were defeated by the Spartans. Those are false comparisons: those were their times and this is ours. And while I can't speak for all Republicans and conservatives everywhere, a big reason for our demoralization is the absolute inability of our leadership to realize they ARE in a fucking fight for the Republic. Our leaders talk prudence and subtlety while a pack of fucking Marxist socialists solidify their hold on power and talk openly of trashing the Constitution and disarming the American public in a generation.

I mean, what's it take, exactly? Honestly, we should start protesting Republican politicians. Do something, anything to wake them the hell up.

363 Wrote this in 2006 on a blog I started and abandoned. (What Ace does is hard, y'all!) Shortened for these comments:

Borders Group Inc. has gone into the book banning business. Actually,
the company is only banning a single issue of a rarely read magazine,
Free Inquiry. (Never heard of it? Neither had I until this past week.)

Borders will not stock the upcoming issue of this
magazine, which some of its stores regularly carry, because it contains
four cartoons. That’s right, cartoons. The four cartoons
depict the prophet Mohammed, and the religion Islam forbids all such
depictions.

Wait a second, you say. If Islam forbids depiction of
the prophet, then surely the practitioners of that religion can honor
the prohibition by refraining from buying the magazine in question. Why
does that necessitate keeping the cartoons out of the hands of others?
Roman Catholics never insisted that Protestants eat fish on Fridays.
None of my Jewish friends have ever begrudged me my BLT. No matter.
Islamic law apparently applies to all of us, whether we believe in the
religion or not. In fact, these four cartoons and eight others
commissioned by Denmark's Jyllands-Posten newspaper were used to spark a
wave of deadly protests by Muslims in a number of countries, with
violent behavior aimed at non-Muslims.

Having seen the 12
cartoons, I can see how a follower of Mohammed would consider them
blasphemous. On the other hand, I’ve seen plenty
of South Park episodes that were more offensive to organized religion
than all 12 of these cartoons combined. Word in the blogosphere is that
the Danish Imams “juiced up” the Danish cartoons with a few of their own
to rally their followers to riot level.

A spokesperson for
Borders made it quite clear (at least as clear as corporate spokespeople
ever make anything) that the magazines were not being stocked in an
effort to ward off violent attacks by angry Muslims. “For us, the
safety and security of our customers and employees is a top priority,
and we believe that carrying this issue could challenge that priority,”
is the money quote from Borders spokeswoman Beth Bingham.

There are over 475 Borders stores and 650 Waldenbooks stores in the United States. The citizens of this nation should launch a loud, long, and effective boycott of each and every one of them. But not for the reasons you might think.

1.
America will die if we do not take a stand against intimidation. The
bully that is Fascislam will grow stronger on appeasement. As a nation,
we must stand up for ourselves and refuse to live in fear. The only way
to do this effectively is to stare down the intimidators and be ready
and willing to take the consequences.

2. Government can only do
so much. The citizenry must lead on a moral basis. Remember the scene in
Casablanca when the French expatriates in Rick’s Café could have gone
either way – allow the Nazis to drown out their culture or sing Le
Marseillase at the top of their lungs? Do you recall watching the movie
and knowing that the free French would win the day, not because somebody
had spoiled the ending by telling you how World War II came out but
because you could see their courage in the face of possible
imprisonment, torture and death? Those patrons of Rick’s could have
easily become cheese-eating, surrender monkey Vichy French (as their
sons and daughters have proven), but instead they prevailed over their
oppressors. We Americans are at a similar fork in the road. Will it be
mandatory burkhas for the ladies and prayer rugs for the men or will we
stand up and sing the Star Spangled Banner at the top of our
Velveeta-eating lungs?

3. Borders Group Inc. is a New York Stock
Exchange-listed company. The corporation, its employees, its executives
and its shareholders have all reaped benefits from the American legal
system and the moral underpinnings
that keep that system working. They may have the legal right (hell,
I’ll even concede them the moral right) to leave that dopey magazine off
their shelves and issue a statement that signals to Muslims around the
globe that Borders is deathly afraid of them and will back down in the
face of intimidation. That’s what the musicians in Rick's Cafe did when
the German soldiers began singing their volksongs. But the American
people, like the free French, have legal and moral rights of our own. We
have the right to stand up and start singing Le Marseillase if we
choose. The question is whether we will choose to do so.

Rumor
has it that Borders Group is up for sale. If the company sells for a
premium price after what it has just done, then America will have lost a
golden opportunity to send a strong message to the fascists of our
time. If, on the other hand, Borders is dealt a serious economic blow by
a full-bore, placard-waving, bumper sticker-sticking, button wearing
boycott, then the prospective buyers of Borders Group may come to the
public hat in hand, promising to change the company’s tune once they
purchase it. If we can make that
happen, we will have shown ourselves and the rest of the world
something important about Americans. Like Rick Blaine in Casablanca, we
will have advised the Nazis that there are some parts of America that
they would be ill-advised to try to invade.

There was a study a few years ago that I lost the link to and can't find about the opinions of those inside and outside government on what the role of government is.

Basically, Republican politicians are closer to Democrat voters than they are to Republican voters, on average.

They're surrounded day in and day out by Big Government, it's their life, they're steeped in it.

We're basically without representation after they get there, they work for the system, not for us.

After the second season it became Moore's idiocy over plot and coherent storylines. Hadto shove in his liberal agenda over everything else. Even the finale suffered from it horribly. I remember participating in a live blog of it, and thinking it was very good.

What the point was beyond "the bad guys are really the good guys or we are the badguys but the goodguys are not so good and let's just chuck technology and uh....stop the er cycle by restarting ah fuck it on to the next project!'

Nah, it was okay to reveal the skin jobs early on, but, yeah, after the second season you could see they had no idea what to do. They had written themselves into a corner and had to blunder their way out. Partly it came from the network being wishy-washy.

431 Original BSG had its script issues. But it had political intrigue Sire Uri though got gelded quickly. Had real aliens. A supposed Lord of Kobold showed up - Iblis played by Patrick McNee. Jane Seymour as the main love interest for Apollo, then Anne Lockhart fell hard for Apollo. While Starbuck was always playing the field with Athena and Cassiopeia.

I wish Battlestar Galactica 1980 had been better. The Colonial Motorcycles left something to be desired. But still they had a dilemma, Earth was primitive and Cylons were still chasing them. So they had to lead the Cylons away from Earth while trying to figure some way to get Earth ready.

It's kind of "light fun" with a serious background that doesn't demand much.

New BSG seems to have been a serious show that turned out later to have a childish idea behind it. So, not so much on the fun.

Great CGI and music, though.

457 One episode to watch, after the pilot episode of the original Battlestar Galactica is, Ice Planet Zero which is a mix of Dirty Dozen and Guns of Navarone. Cylons are herding the Colonial refugees toward a system where the Cylons have emplaced basically a Hoth style ion-cannon. So Apollo and Starbuck recruit a strike team off the prison ship.

458 They're surrounded day in and day out by Big Government, it's their life, they're steeped in it. We're basically without representation after they get there, they work for the system, not for us. Posted by: Merovign, Dark Lord of the Sith at January 28, 2013 11:53 PM (bxiXv)

I used to live in DC and can attest to that. Not just the pols themselves, but their staffers - crap, everyone there, because everyone there(including yours truly, once upon a time) works for businesses which depend on the government, even if they're not government workers themselves. The important thing becomes getting invited to the "right parties," getting your name (or your bosses' name) into the WaPo, getting the kids into the "right schools" (ie not DC public schools). And if you're in "private" industry there, business grows if the government does - so those pesky tea party types out there beyond the beltway are a real threat to you - no matter what party you're in. I started to move right while I was still there, but I had to live away from DC for awhile before I realized what constantly breathing in the air of Big Government does to you. And I was making an effort to resist it - of course, most people there don't.

The thing with the suicide bombers wasn't that the good guys are the bad guys and the bad guys are the good guys. The thing was warfare can corrupt even a good cause. The Colonials were on the right side but were forced to fight in an evil way (suicide bombers).

The lesson was you can't measure who is the good guy just by measuring how they fight.

I told him Steve McQueen (pbuh) is the standard by which cool is measured. I told him that 'You drive like Steve McQueen' is the greatest compliment one man can give to another.

--Steyn's historical example is a good one: less than a century ago, Somalia was just a remote and peaceful Italian (later, British) colonial outpost. Not an overly pleasant place, but peaceful. Only in the last couple decades or so did it slip into a Hobbesean hellhole. Civilization is not the natural equilibrium status of man; it's more like the warlord era of China.

Yeah essentially England's "sin" was teaching people about the benefits of capitalism without the requirements....and that is not whitewashing the excesses of imperialism. I think if the locals care about prosperity at all they care about counting coup more. I simply do not see a happy ending, until they get enough blood out and the next set of imperialists do a better job schooling them.

The Chinese and Russians seem to be interested in stepping up.

Gonna be hard to have a good economy letting China corner Africa's assets and have an Asian hegemon but "hey" SMARTPOWER! baby....

that means our economic gain will have to be in energy resources we refuse to use because of leftist religion or cheap labor they won't allow until they've destroyed our liberty and culture.....

wonder how this will turn out...?

I loved the original BSG, but it was "childish." It was a 70s thing,
Buck Rogers 82 was like that (well, the first season - the second was
childish *and* stupid).



It's kind of "light fun" with a serious background that doesn't demand much.



New BSG seems to have been a serious show that turned out later to have a childish idea behind it. So, not so much on the fun.



Great CGI and music, though.

The networks think that anything that has to do with space/sci fi needs to have some cute little kid/critter/robot in it to appeal to the kiddehs. Once they shove it into the show, the adults stop watching it, and the kids see right through it, the ratings tank, show gets cancelled.

Oh and Ultraman was pretty awesome too. My first tv show I ever watched that was dubbed (it took me a while to figure out why the characters' mouths were moving when they weren't speaking and vice versa). Ultraman got to fight monsters plus there was Fuji, the female, Japanese character that looked like me! (Well, was Japanese, and let's face it, in the 70's there weren't a lot of Asians on tv!)

If you take the Wrath of Khan score, cut and paste the motifs, change the key of the chord progressions or change the speed, then you too can do a James Horner score.

609 ST:TMP script was taken from one of the stories that was going to be produced for the new Star Trek TV series, a story from Roddenberry himself called 'In Thy Image.' When you think on that script and its premise, Tan Rau Changeling pops up easily.

Then Star Wars happened and Paramount went 'we want a movie! Now!!' So the series was scrapped. TMP was made and the rest is history. Though some of the scripts from the failed second series made it to ST:TNG - when Deanna is mysteriously impregnated and rapidly gives birth.

624 602 Jordan,

Yeah really?

The book by Kuanchung is a character analysis told 1200 years later but do go on stud.

Had this chat with a Materials engineer who offered the theory. He said he was told most Americans identify with Zhang Fei or so he was told. Seriously lay it on me fella.

You also think I learned everything about WW2 from PTO cutie pie?

Hey Jordan I know which characters are "real" and fake because I read the historical analysis of the period.

How's about you lay some neo-Marxist Maoist bullshit on me about how Cao Cao was a proto-socialist, or a cpitalist pig dog....then a true nationalist depending on which version of "history" the party is int he mood for?

Also watched the 1995 version which had a noticeable alteration in PoV.

My my we're touchy aren't we precious.

I don't claim to speak Chinese, because well I don't. Never much saw the need have managed to get by with Wade-Giles. Thanks to giggles and libertarians like you I am reanalyzing the need.

The basic difference is the Munsters went for the cheap, obvious laugh.

Also on the Munsters they would always crack up at their own jokes, mug to the camera, etc. It was just... cheap.

688 had to deal with some Inuits about 10 years ago,
and holy shit they bitched about everything. My company sent a framed
gift to one family, and the UPS store screwed it up and they had to pay
about $20 in taxes. We had no idea about the taxes since it cost us
about $120 to ship it, so we thought it was okay., but this family
bitched like they had been screwed out of their entire life savings
because UPS screwed up, but somehow that was our fault.
Since that day, I knew they were in the frontline of the F$A.


Posted by: MrCaniac at January 28, 2013 11:02 PM (Zd/NW)

UPS is about the worst possible shipper to use for cross-border shipments into Canada. I will attempt to explain. Most goods from the USA can enter Canada duty-free now, but practically everything is subject to GST (goods and services tax), now 5%, would have been 7% at that time. Send something by mail, and the post office at the receiving end collects the GST, and a flat fee of about five dollars for doing the paperwork. UPS also collects the GST, but charges a "brokerage" fee based on a percentage of the value of the item. That's a damned ripoff, since it doesn't take any more effort to calculate 5% of 200 dollars than it does to calculate 5% of 20 dollars. And UPS has real problems finding a rural address, like me. When I order goods out of the USA, I specify U.S. Postal service. If the shipper refuses to do that, I will take my business elsewhere, or else have the goods shipped to a friend in a border state, and make a visit to fetch them later.
Your Inuit folks rightly had a beef with UPS, and wrongly took out their frustrations on you. Of course, they might not have understood that the shipper was merely hired help. The first time I got screwed over by UPS, I was some pissed off, but I realized that the sender couldn't have possibly known about the issues with them here in Canada.

I had one of those. Same year. Wretched POS. The first year of the Type IV engine in the vans. Looked just like a VW engine, but cost 3 times as much to fix when it broke, which it did with appalling regularity. If I found one of the old split-windshield Transporters for a reasonable price, I'd snag it in a heartbeat, but I wouldn't have one of the newer ones if you gave it to me.

709 Whew, waded through all of those tho it cost me my entire lunch break...but I have to say this.


The new BSG ... SUCKS BALLS!!! and I'll tell you why.



Starbuck is a MAN, baby! A pussy chasing, whisky drinking, cigar chomping motherfucking fighter jet (rocket?) flying MAN!!! Making him a girl was just plain WRONG. It was a nut cut, a pussification of the original, and it was done for PC bullshit reasons. FUCK the new BSG and anyone who had a hand in making it.


And now, back to work. Thatisall.

719 And Starbuck's still a cigar chompin, heavy drinking guy. With a Strap on. I still saw her as a guy. I'm still trying to get over Rossilin's speech . "NO, not now, not Ever, I will use every cannon, every bomb, every bullet, every weapon I have to my eye teeth to end you, I swear it, I'm coming for you!" Show me where a speech like that happened in the original BS. And how much more that it's applicable today. Just saying, I could be wrong.

720 Interesting tidbit about that scene in CASABLANCA: most of the crowd in the cafe, as well as nearly all the character actors, were in fact refugees from the Third Reich.

I waver between Doomed™ and This Is As Always©.

But, mostly I ruminate over the fact that the Dem-Dems wish for the dissolution of the GOP. And that we may or may not play a part in that.

Yes, the GOP leadership is no better than Ebola. Yes, they are comfortable being the Tory party of Soviet America. Yes, they are parasites on the skin of what is the last best hope for a Grand Old Country.

It's almost always better to focus on a target, a single pol, as a warning to all prevaricators than it is to torch the cabin.

Alinsky won but he didn't see the obverse of that evil coin.

Posted by: weft cut-loop at January 29, 2013 02:53 AM (xz0nG)

728 Alinsky is odd. I've never read it, but I understand Dick Armey, my former boss, requires it.

Posted by: Jordan at January 29, 2013 02:59 AM (Hz1zc)

729 I know what the Dems are -- scorpions. I know their nature.

But the GOPers in DC don't. They want to give them piggyback rides across the creek, and act shocked, shocked I tell you, that those scorpions have stung them once again.

But why would they do that? We were helping them out.

Then they make fun of the GOP for being so trusting.

Everything the Dems does has one of two goals -- to increase their voter base or make Repubs look bad. So look at their latest action and figure out which of the goals it serves.

Aside from funding Meat laden Wisdom to the hilt, it's time to think about using Alynsky tactics to affect change in the GOP. Yes, it's trite by now.

But, answer me this; why hasn't BHO had to account for his fluffer-nutter of a nothing political position. Nothing he says amounts to much. He says nothing and the electorate holds him to it. Why? WTF?

That one was directly shoplifted off a Space:1999 episode in the 70s. 'SF Jesus' was one of the obligatory episode themes for a long time and turned up in lots of places but the similarity to that particular script makes it pretty blatant.

735 So, Chick-fil-A's big talk was just that. Goes to show that we are really up against it. We can't trust business to go against the voter numbers and the general tide of moral conscience in our country. The ballot box is lost to us. Woe, yes.

No reference - but I've read more than once that Hollywood was full of Germans, both gentiles and Jews, who had fled Nazi Germany - and many of them ended up playing Nazis in the movies.

One reason Hollywood was still pro-American in those days.
