Overnight Open Thread (2-12-2013)

Tonight we journey to the surface of Mars.

Is there life here? Who knows. But I can guarantee that you won't hear any of the SOTU here.

CBS's Legacy of 'Journalists'

More like nasty lying political operatives wearing reporter suits.

Daniel Schorr at the 1964 GOP convention:

"It looks as though Senator Goldwater, if nominated, will be starting his campaign here in Bavaria, center of Germany's right wing" also known, Schorr added helpfully, as "Hitler's one-time stomping ground." Goldwater, he went on, had given an interview to Der Spiegel, "appealing to right-wing elements in Germany," and had agreed to speak to a conclave of, yes, "right-wing Germans." "Thus," Schorr concluded, "there are signs that the American and German right wings are joining up." Now back to you, Walter, and have a nice day!

Pretty much anything Dan Rather ever said.

And here's Bob Schieffer last month:

And that's what Barack Obama is going to have to do.what happened in Newtown was probably the worst day in this country's history since 9/11. We found Osama bin Laden. We tracked him down. We changed the way that we dealt with that problem. Surely, finding Osama bin Laden; surely passing civil rights legislation, as Lyndon Johnson was able to do; and before that, surely, defeating the Nazis, was a much more formidable task than taking on the gun lobby.

A Movie For All Time

Here's a line you'll either recognize or you won't: "This is one time where television really fails to capture the true excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather." If you don't recognize this little gem, you've either never seen Groundhog Day or you're not a fan of what is, in my opinion, one of the best films of the last 40 years. As the day of the groundhog again approaches, it seems only fitting to celebrate what will almost undoubtedly join It's a Wonderful Life in the pantheon of America's most uplifting, morally serious, enjoyable, and timeless movies.

From Jonah Goldberg's classic essay on Groundhog Day.

The 48 Laws of Machiavellian Power

In one's life, you're better off following the teachings of Moses, Jesus, or Buddha to gain long-term happiness. But the sad fact is, many people live by a very different set of rules, and while most of these folks eventually self-destruct, they can inflict severe damage on our personal and professional lives in the process.

48 Rules of Power is a good primer for learning how these people think. I've spotted a number of similar books in the Business section (like "Career Warfare" and classics like the "Art of War" ) of my local bookseller, but none put things quite as succinctly as this one.
Law 13
When Asking for Help, Appeal to People's Self-Interest, Never to their Mercy or Gratitude

If you need to turn to an ally for help, do not bother to remind him of your past assistance and good deeds.  He will find a way to ignore you.  Instead, uncover something in your request, or in your alliance with him, that will benefit him, and emphasize it out of all proportion.  He will respond enthusiastically when he sees something to be gained for himself.

Law 14
Pose as a Friend, Work as a Spy

Knowing about your rival is critical.  Use spies to gather valuable information that will keep you a step ahead.  Better still: Play the spy yourself.  In polite social encounters, learn to probe.  Ask indirect questions to get people to reveal their weaknesses and intentions.  There is no occasion that is not an opportunity for artful spying.

These rules may be amoral but even a moral person might want to have them in their quiver just in case.

The Legal Case for Israel

One of the clearest explications of the legal basis for Israel and the history of the region I've ever seen. If Israel is somehow 'illegal' then so is every other country in the area since they were also based on similar mandates.

One of the best explanations of the legal and political background is presented in this video by Northwestern Law Professor Eugene Kontorovich.  He puts the lie to the currently fashionable notion that the "1967 borders" have any legal or historical signficance, and demonstrates that Israel does not "illegally occupy" the West Bank.  In fact, it was Jordan which illegally occupied the West Bank prior to 1967.

OMG: Robots Are Taking Our Jobs!!

The latest progressive fear - ATMs and robots are stealing jobs!

In other words, the Left is only able to conflate obsolete jobs and permanent unemployment because it's looking at a particular moment in time, one in which the remnants of our once-thriving private sector are still introducing labor-saving devices, even as the Progressive government's heavy hand is simultaneously suppressing that start-ups that would have piggy-backed on this new technology and provided different (and often better) employment opportunities.

Here are the kind of jobs being taken by the robots:

Well actually robots have advanced quite a bit but they're still really only good at repetitive tasks requiring little inspection or judgment. So if a robot can replace you, then that doesn't speak very well of the value you were bringing to the job in the first place.

The Future is Now

From 1906.

The Zeppelin: A Useful Knot

I've never heard of this knot before but it sounds more useful than the usual ones that are taught. You can see an animated version here.

For some reason this amazingly useful knot has been forgotten. Like many knots, it is stronger than a square knot, but it is unique in that it can always be untied easily, even after it has been loaded heavily. In other words, it will not "jam". It is also easy to tie and easy to verify.

Supposedly it is called the Rosendahl or "Zeppelin" knot because American airship commander Charles Rosendahl insisted on its use in mooring lines. Airships can put tremendous transient loads on those lines, so they needed strong knots that could still be untied in a hurry.

91 My case for Israel might be even simpler. It's on Muslim land, and Islam sucks. I'd be for Israel if it were full of Tibetans.

There's also the point that the Jews need a homeland, for various historical reasons, which we can all be reminded of when we visit DU and Zerohedge; and the Arabs already got one (western Arabia). The Arab homeland also has a lot of coastline, if they *must* have beachfront real estate.

110 I need some help from the collective moron memory. Sometime in the last year or so, one of the morons mentioned that he had a daughter that stopped growing in one leg or something of that nature during her teenage years. I don't recall the exactissue but it was something very odd, and the root problem turned out to be something very counterintuitive. Does this sound familiar to anyone? The young lady in question is now in college, IIRC.

I ask because there is a ~11 year old girl in my church who has rather abruptly stopped growing this last year (less than 3/4" when she should be averaging around 4"). She is apparently not producing the growth hormone she should be producingat all. She is going to be getting injections of synthetic hormone as compensation, but I was wondering if anyone remembered the other story soI could pass it along to her parents if it sounded like it might be a similar situation.

=====mostly likely, you can let the complaints go by without much concern. If she actually wants you to do something about a problem, she'll let you know.

85% of the time or more, when a woman tells you about her problems she doesn't really want your help -- you are just supposed to acknowledge her frustration. Most times, a simple "I'm sorry that happened to you," / "I wish you felt better" / "That was unfair and you didn't deserve it" / etc. will do nicely.

159 If he's in that cabin, I don't understand why he went to the mountains.

He's not stupid but it seems that way.

Mountains: limited ways in and out. That area has a noticeably paler population than say Baldwin Hills or Watts. Rough terrain on foot. Lots of LE with Helos due to skiiing, tourism etc.

Why go to the mountains?

I think it IS a beg setup but someone's flinging bullets at the cops so it's probably him. Maybe the truck packed it in as he was crossing and he had to improvise.

The main ways criminals get caught: equipment failure or getting snitched on (gf's mostly).

be. Fox (William Lej... IIRC) even said he was an "expert marksman,"
tonight.


Posted by: Baldy at February 12, 2013 10:19 PM



He was a better shot than the guys chasing him. He killed the people he was shooting at. They got 2 newspaper delivery women, 2 innocent pickups, and killed Dorner by setting his hideout on fire.

Joffen, I don't know you from Adam. Here, we are all pretty much the people that type goofy things that live inside your computer.
My cousin committed suicide when he was 17. My brother in law committed suicide when he was 29, and left my sister and two little girls, due to his depression.
You're in a dark place, and most people have been there at least once. Sometimes is seems like that's all there is.... darkness. It probably seems like everything you hoped for has come undone.

Without trying to sound corny, your life is a sacred thing, like every man and woman's life is. Don't give up and do something so irreversibly tragic that you might contemplate.

Regardless of what you might think and feel at this moment, there are surely people who care about you very much, and would be heartbroken if something happened to you. I know. I've seen a great many people I care about leave this life, and the hurt really never goes away, but sometimes the hurt reminds you that you are alive.

Be strong. Re-affirm that you are stronger than this and will prevail. Not just survive. Prevail.

292 151 Canada still sucks though.

Yesterday after court, I thought my life couldn't get any worse. I tried to hang myself in October. Someone called the cops, they cut me down. I almost didn't make it.

Yes, it was a serious thing what I did and I'm doing my best to get help but after the judge made her ruling, I started wishing the cops didn't find me. And then today I lose my job. But it's weird...I'm not feeling so bad about it. I'll just look for another job.

I don't know if I'll never make another attempt again, if I'm being honest. But right now, I'm just pushing through all this shit.

.....

I am sorry to learn of your job situation, and beside myself to learn that you tried to give up on it all.

Promise. PROMISE! That you will turn to those who care for you should those thoughts ever cross your mind again.

There's some new (terrorism-inspired?) international postal rule about not being allowed to send alcohol at a certain proof, even as perfume, through the mail.

I used to send my Aussie buddy the small 2-oz bottles of rye for Christmas mixed in with Christmas candies and a stuffed toy for his daughter but would describe them as "perfume" on the customs packing slip so the package wouldn't get stolen by Canadian or Aussie postal workers. So I go to mail the package to him one Christmas and discover that booze and perfume are on the no-fly list!

I don't know if it affects private air courier companies or just postal services.

with. Because this is to be asserted in general of men, that they are
ungrateful, fickle, false, cowardly, covetous, and as long as you succeed

330 I've always like the next paragraph as well of Machiavelli;

But
when it is necessary for him to proceed against the life of someone, he
must do it on proper justification and for manifest cause, but above all
things he must keep his hands off the property of others, because men more
quickly forget the death of their father than the loss of their patrimony.
Besides, pretexts for taking away the property are never wanting; for he
who has once begun to live by robbery will always find pretexts for
seizing what belongs to others;
but reasons for taking life, on the
contrary, are more difficult to find and sooner lapse. But when a prince
is with his army, and has under control a multitude of soldiers, then it
is quite necessary for him to disregard the reputation of cruelty, for
without it he would never hold his army united or disposed to its duties.

We need to face that people don't care about the details... they pay attention to the speaker himself.. Obama was a lying SCoaMF, but he came accross sure of himself, and made people watching feel sure of him as well.

Rubio blew that. He was clearly nervous. He touched his temples multiple times. He awkwardly grabbed that water bottle. He seemed "not ready for prime time" and maybe even pushed people away due to his awkwardness.

In fairness, no. It was a stronghold of the Nazis from the get-go. It had been a Red stronghold before that (e.g. right after WWI, with the establishment of a Bavarian Soviet that was crushed by the central government), but the Nazis largely co-opted the socialist message (read their manifesto of the time), and added nationalism, which closed the deal.

He's a progressive statist engaged on implementing his utopian dream and dragging all of us down with it. He runs roughshod over the US Constitution, despite being a constitutional lawyer. And that's not very ironic and it's not a coincidence, either. He's a Gramscian Marxist hell bent on destroying the America he hates (being America as it is), in lieu of fashioning an America Moochelle can be proud of. And that's no America I, for one, want to be part of.

Before my Mama passed away in Dec. 2001, she had asked me to be her Executor. As I no longer lived on the East coast, I asked her to name by baby brother. When I went back to help him, we went to BN to get a 'Dummy's Guide To Probate' (yeah, they make one). At checkout, he casually picked a yellow highlighter out of a jar, uncapped it, and took a sniff. I have done the same sort of thing (going back to mimeograph days). He looked at me and said 'smell this, it smells like a banana'. Sure enough, it did smell like a banana. So he tried the other colors and got strawberry for red, etc. He asked me what they did that for. 'I looked straight at the little girl running the cash register and said 'that's so blind people can highlight stuff when they are reading'. She nodded yes and said 'isn't that a great idea!'. True story. She was blonde.

Aside from Rubios mannerisms, sick of government focusing of education.
The more money they give to schools, the more taxes increase locally.
Federal government needs to get out of the education business, period.
Both parties try to one up each other regarding education spending.

Cowboy, that is it. I refuse to watch, listen or even see the JEF unless Rush or Levin play clips of him. If he's on everywhere I shut the television off or mute it if I am at my computer.

Rubio gave a great smack down of my former senator Lurch Kerry in the summer of 2011, I believe it was during the debt ceiling talks but it could have been something else. Kerry wanted Rubio to stop talking so he could take over and Rubio smacked that fool down. It was great.

Why does our side agree to such harsh, hot lights? I'm sure TFG demands certain lights, sides, etc to best show off his ugly face, before he'll agree to a one on one interview.

We should demand the same for SOTU rebuttal. One network could broadcast it and feed it live for all.

No. I wouldn't want to be in his position, but I didn't ask to be a U. S. Senator, and Rubio did.

While I would agree that it is important for our party to reach some consensus, I can't imagine you believe we should withhold critique, especially in a place such as AOS.

It is my opinion that Rubio is making a disingenuous pitch on immigration. He is nervous because he is speaking for a Gang of N Seantors compromise, and he either doesn't believe in the result, or knows that he is full of horse droppings.

He's been on national TV before, run for Senate, and been the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives. This shouldn't be that hard.

575 Which i think i did yesterday, WTF is the flying squid referencing???

Posted by: RWC at February 13, 2013 12:00 AM (sqp6o)


There was some video of little squids (less than a foot long, IIRC) that were doing the "leap out of the water and skip along the surface to avoid predators" thing. 'Cause it's a bit more difficult for creatures to do that when they're big enough to have squid-sized mouths -- the cube/square law* and all that.


*and just in case -- the cube/square reference is when you increase the size of something, its mass goes up by the cube, but the strength goes up by the square. In other words, if you had a golden retriever puppy that was twice as tall as the usual, it'd be four times stronger, but eight times heavier -- so you'd expect it to do a lot of drooping around. Works for inanimate objects like I-beams, too.

592 THE PSYCHOLOGY OF WOMEN & DRINKING

Seven New York City bartenders were asked if they could nail a woman's personality based on what she drinks. Though interviewed separately, they concurred on almost all counts. The results:

Drink: Beer
Personality: Casual, low-maintenance, and down-to-earth
Your Approach: Challenge her to a game of pool

Drink: Blender Drinks
Personality: Flaky and annoying pain in the ass
Your Approach: Avoid her, unless you want to be her cabin boy

Drink: Mixed Drinks
Personality: Older with picky taste and knows what she wants
Your Approach: You won't have to approach her ... she'll send YOU a drink

Drink: Wine (does not include White Zinfandel ... see below)
Personality: Conservative, classy, and sophisticated
Your Approach: Tell her you wish Reagan had had four more years ... Alzheimer's and term limits be damned

Drink: White Zinfandel
Personality: Easy; thinks she is classy and sophisticated but actually has no clue
Your approach: Make her feel smarter than she is...

Drink: Shots
Personality: Hanging with frat-boy pals or looking to get drunk ... and naked
Your Approach: Easiest hit in the joint ... nothing to do but wait

628 Awash in liberal talking points, it's clear this dunderhead is now so high on, among other things, his own arrogance that even my 77 year old Dem-leaning father commented on it tonight. Here is Cruz's press release in response.


WASHINGTON, DC—U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) released the following statement responding to the President’s State of the Union address: The
President had an opportunity to reach across the aisle and propose
policies to produce economic growth. Unfortunately, he chose instead to
embrace unabashed liberalism. President Obama only knows how to grow government, not the economy. Under
President Obama, the economy is entering its fifth year of substandard
annual growth – 0.8% on average -- compared to an average of 3.3% for
the last 70 years. If
the President's big-government policies were enacted, they would make it
harder for the 23 million people out of work to find a job, harder for
young people coming out of school to find their first job, and harder
for Hispanics and African Americans struggling to achieve the American
dream. There is
potential for real bipartisan cooperation in Congress to get the economy
growing and help people get back to work, but expanding government
spending, debt, taxes, and control of the economy will only make the
problem worse.

I would have preferred a waterboarding to watching Il Douche's speech.

I watched Justified. And I don't know...this season is not grabbing me. Where are the marshals? Where's Art? Where's Rachel? I want to see them, you know, being marshals. I like Bobby from Supernatural okay but he's no Art. And I'm actually starting to dislike Raylan.And Boyd and Ava. Also, Patton fucking Oswalt. Just seeing him in the "previously" clip made me want to hurl. He's s a stain on the show.

As far as Chris Dorner goes...good riddance, although... a fire? Really? Why is it that in the Obama era bodies and evidence seem to be so scarce? If that is Chris Dorner, I'm surprised. I really did think he would be long gone.

Ash Wednesday already...wow. Will say a special prayer for the horde when I'm at mass later.




Posted by: Gem at February 13, 2013 02:54 AM (zw+pb)

756 Didn't watch the preznit cuz I gave up TV, and well, I hate the taste of puke.



Didn't watch Rubio, cuz, well, I guess after watching the people on this thread argue over how to drink water I just can't manage to give a shit.



Did watch Rand Paul cuz a link was posted upthread and thought, what the hell, I'll take a look. The following is intended as a constructive suggestion only ---


Rand Paul gave a speech that on its merits was about like quietly whispering "fire" in a burning building. Mr. Paul, you have a very important message and you should make it sound like one. When the building I am in is burning, I want you to yell "FIRE" as loud as you can.


There were a number of mistakes that pubbies always make -- stats and dollar amounts, followed by stats and dollar amounts. That will never work. Anecdotes work. Things have to be personalized. Everyone can project themselves into any person with whom they feel comparable. Very few people can project themselves into a statistic.


Mr. Paul, study Hans Bleiker. Drag all of your compatriots with you. Apply the Bleiker Life Preserver -- and drop the damn stats and tell stories about people -- real, everyday people.

Posted by: jc at February 13, 2013 03:05 AM (PlzOe)

757 An example of how pubbies should be talking in the age of Oblameus -


"Mrs. (insert name of real person) is recently widowed. She lives in (insert her town). Under this President, she is being bled out." Then go on to explain how inflation coupled with near zero interest rates is cancelling all the work that her and her husband did for 50 years. Explain how unfair it is and don't sugarcoat the language for anybody. Explain why Obuttsux is just a mean asshole and for pete's sake <i>Make it Real for a Real Person.</i>



Right after you are done explaining how horrible this asshole has been to a member of the elderly in a manner that all the other elders can compare themselves to (the power of an anecdote about a real person rather than dry statistical facts figgers), then move down 10 years and do it again --


"Mr. and Mrs. (insert real couple here) live in (insert their real town). They are coping with unbearable stress. Not only are their parents being shoved down a rathole by the President's disastrous economic policies that are depleting their savings while offering zero protection against real inflation -- they are also supporting 2 adult children who cannot get a start in life because there are no jobs." Then go on to explain a couple of real points.



Move down in age again and with the example of a real person explain how a student is getting screwed by the system --- etc., etc.



These politicians need to reach out and get some real stories about real people that are getting the shaft. They need to boil those real stories into concise, well-explained forms and use them like a cluster bomb on preznit asshole and his crowd. No stats, except as a portion of the explanation. No figgers. No whining about the abstract -- talk about people and always, always, always do so with extreme prejudice.

Posted by: jc at February 13, 2013 03:24 AM (PlzOe)

758 by "extreme prejudice" I mean talk about the Preznit and his merry band of misfits like you think they are all heartless assholes and with the full expectation that every reasonable person who is not a heartless asshole would agree. In other words, sound like Tip O'Neil talking about Reagan -- at all times, in all ways.

762 So, how many ways are real Americans getting screwed:


- this president has changed our society from one where it rained sometimes but the sun shines a lot -- to a society where it is always dank, drab, and drizzles -- welcome to the new world where the only color is Soviet concrete grey -- and that is all you will ever see again until these assholes are gone.


- you will be born into debt slavery from the very first minute of your life. Anything you make will be destroyed by their inflation.


- you will be deprived of a chance to get an education without enormous, unmanageable debt. The days when you could work your way through college are gone and will be ruthlessly trampled out if they start to appear again.


- you will be trapped by the welfare cliff into being a slave for someone who quit and is now riding on your back, or you must accept your fate and live in the handcuffs of a somewhat comfortable, but totally unfulfilled life.


- you will be kept from supporting yourself by horrible, heartless, and clinically stupid regulations administered by people who have been turned into zombies by the lack of humanity in their respective bureaucracies.



- you will be deprived of a chance to endure a single day without massively
stupid bureaucracy adding a ridiculous level of stress to your life. You will come to understand the madness of completely meaningless frustration --- we are all Yossarian now.



- you will be fought at every turn if you attempt to raise your children to believe solid values or even to receive an education that isn't truly pathetic. If you fight for these things, your children will be punished as a means to make you stop.


- you will lose your insurance and your doctor. You will get health care from the medical equivalent of the DMV. You will be judged by a death panel. If you survive, you will meet another one soon enough.



These are some of the messages that must be delivered (I am sure the horde can add more, and better ones) -- and it can only be done by telling real stories about real people -- and ....




Posted by: jc at February 13, 2013 03:52 AM (PlzOe)

763 and ....


those real people that are chosen to be the anecdotes that carry the messages for us all will go through hell. Every single one of them will get at least the "Joe the Plumber" treatment.


Each person who volunteers to be an example of the downstream effects of shitfest that is this regime must understand in advance what will happen to them, and each one must be vetted because the dumpster-diving media whores will go after them with claws, fangs, and disease.


There is nothing these walking colostomy bags will not stoop to, so each volunteer needs to be prepared and ready for the challenge.

Posted by: jc at February 13, 2013 03:58 AM (PlzOe)

764 Hey Richard.


I thought I was alone, so I am taking an opportunity to get some things off my chest.


I get so frustrated with the arguments like those upthread, where it seems to me, that the members of the horde feel so hopeless about the lack of leadership. I don't think our problem is especially tied to leaders, or the lack of leaders. I think our problem is our side has no idea how to reach people that don't already agree with them.
