Funcession Hits Time, Inc.; 500 Layoffs Announced

Khan, I'm laughing at the superior intellect.

By the way, the decrepit "tough guy" Lawrence O'Donnell grinned and glinted last night, as it was his time to shine: Someone had to defend NBC's indefensible lie, and O'Donnell eagerly enlisted for that duty.

I discussed that at Breitbart.

Oh: If you can't find "The Conversation," it's actually just at the top of the page right next to all the "Big This, Big That" clickers.

If you can't see it it's because your computer is using a cached version of the top of the page -- it actually is there. But not in your older cached version.

Until you clear that, or it clears automatically, you can click on this.

Def needs work. The 'conversations' should be in a frame that scrolls left to right; new topic at the beginning left position and responses to the right. New topics collect at the top like other blogs, but it's not readable with the responses to be interspersed in the new topics.

Posted by: tasker at January 30, 2013 01:20 PM (r2PLg)

38 If this is supposed to be set up like a blog, then we need to see all the "back and forth" stuff happen in some sort of chronological order. Don't do it like Twitter and have the most recent stuff up at the top. Have the beginning post first, and then scroll down for the rest of the story.

This is a great idea that can be fucked up by the wrong execution.

So, hang on... In this theory, the Stupid Hole would be more similar to a white hole than a black hole, right? A black hole sucks matter in, and a white hole spews it out again. So if the Stupid Hole SPEWS stupidity, then it has to be getting that stupidity from somewhere else. Which means somewhere in the galaxy there's a place where all the stupid has been sucked away.

I’ve been thinking about forestry and how its principles and
techniques may be useful in our approach to the world.



Fire neither is innately constructive nor destructive. It merely causes change. If we use fire as a tool, we can enhance our
environment or control an otherwise out of control fire. Setting a backfire to stop a fire is a very
common technique employed to take away fuel for a larger fire.



Letting it burn is most often an approach that leaves devastation
with few benefits to us.



With our economy we should be lighting backfires. Attacking the middle of a blaze wastes
resources. Setting fires ahead of a fire
and working around the fringes is best at extinguishing the fire.



So, the only question becomes what is the best plan of attack to
start some backfires. That question
leads to who or what is next to be consumed.
Lighting a fire there and reducing its fuel becomes the key
question. Small areas where an existing
backstop is present are ideal.



Indeed, it is the immigrants and low information voters where the
fire is headed. These groups, or maybe
better yet their sub-groups, need to be partially burned before they become a
fuel source for the wildfire that is socialism.
We need to hurt these people so that all can see the much greater danger
of being set fire by the liberal winds.



We need to withhold any aid or comfort to the select people of these
groups. As a specific example, do not
give your time, talents, or money to urban nonprofits. Another would be to take more money from
these people for their company sponsored healthcare.



We need to make it such that the very people we wish to help have
been hurt. Not killed. Merely hurt.
Not all of them. Just enough of
them so that the others see the danger.
Then they can all connect consequences to actions.



What we don’t want to do is waste our time attacking liberals or
attacking the government entitlement agencies head on. It will not change them. Yes, withhold what you can from them, but
only to save your resources not to try to affect some change. Attacking liberals will cement their own
ideology and alienate you from those that you can change. Attacking liberals can also give them an
explosion of energy in response.
Instead, take away their oxygen by not adding water much like you would
a grease fire. Instead just put a lid on
it and walk away.



I do want to change this country and all its components for the
better. We must decide what is worth
saving and what must burn. Unfortunately
we need to harm the very ones we intend on saving so that the whole lot is not
consumed. Every action and inaction we
take in every moment must be purposeful.
We need to internalize our word, take responsibility for it and then
change our behaviors such that only positive steps are walked toward self and
community betterment.



Start by developing a plan in each of our lives toward an
achievable and actual good. Determine
what steps are required. Then begin by
testing those steps; self monitoring those steps; altering course as required
though feedback data. Once on the right
path, it will become a walk in the park.



This missive is one of my steps.

233 Ace,

A little while back I saw your piece on shouldn't we let the Egyptians and the Iraqis just fight it out and essentially have their own civil war to figure out what kind of country they should be, and who are we to step in as a "parent."

Essentially, that is the Jacksonian foreign policy/philosophy, and is the dominant philosophy in America.

I can't remember where I saw that phrase or its explanation, but it was a fascinating read with regard to the various policies/philosophies present in America.
