The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“I think a lot of our prisons in this country were built on an effort of punishment. But when you punish somebody, there’s got to be something about rehabilitation and second chances, and that’s what we’re doing in these prisons.” Sean Pica


Quote II

See, when Donald Trump came into office, unlike Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit, he did not have a bulging Rolodex full of eager sycophants with bureaucratic experience. He first tried to hire old “conservative” establishment hands and found that their loyalty to the establishment trumped their purported conservatism. Slowly, he has been surrounding himself with quality people. And those Trump loyalists brought into the administration fresh? Well, after three years, they now have experience. They know their way around. He has built a cadre of tough, experienced loyalists within the bureaucracy. Just think of how it is going to be after eight years. Kurt Schlichter


Quote III

"What kind of a town lets their chief of police walk out in a snowstorm in his underwear?" Rick Sampson


Quote IV

“It is so clearly unconstitutional under the First Amendment that it's hard to believe that it's still on the books. It punishes speech based on the content of the speech, and that it is one of the key concepts of the First Amendment — that the government cannot punish speech based on its content.” William Dunlap, a professor at the Quinnipiac University School of Law in North Haven, Connecticut

Leaking is leaking except when it's fashionable, just ask James Comey or Andrew McCabe SPITS

If leaking classified information is all right for an FBI director and his deputy, why could it end up getting Henry Kyle Frese up to 10 years in prison?

Frese, 31, is a former Defense Intelligence Agency employee pled guilty on Thursday “to charges related to his disclosure of classified national defense information (NDI) to two journalists in 2018 and 2019,” according to a Department of Justice news release.

The press release said that Frese had transmitted classified information about defense capabilities to two journalists on dozens of occasions, in addition to passing information to an overseas consultant.

Public universities continue to be sewers. At least Thee Ohio State University kids are raising their own funds and not sucking off the taxpayer's teat.

The event’s Twitter account posted last month that it expected to raise $3,000 for the week’s events which concluded last Sunday, February 16. According to the school’s student activities portal, student organizations can “apply for up to $2000 or $3000 in programming funds,” but club president and founder Abby Rinderle informed The College Fix that the group was not using university funds to finance the project.

Rinderle said in email correspondence with The Fix that the school does not grant the highest level of funding to new organizations. “We actually are not eligible for $3,000 because we are a relatively new organization and you have to be established for a few years. We are eligible for $2,000, though we are not using any of those funds for Sex Week. We fundraise outside of Ohio State and partner with various Columbus organizations in order to make Sex Week happen,” Rinderle claimed.

Women with large chests suffer from worse colds, study finds.

While women who have less than ample bosoms might wish they were a little more “blessed in the chest” as they say, those of us with larger cup sizes know that it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Clothes don’t fit right, our backs hurt, and there’s literally no way a natural DD is ever going to be anywhere near perky. Now there’s even worse news: having a larger chest also means suffering from worse colds!

Vicks VapoRub anyone?

Do we really only have 12 years to turn this ship around? Stupid and uninformed people do.

Global warming and additional CO2 are benefiting humankind today and will still be a net benefit for many years to come. Someday, if the worst climate change computer projections turn out to be true, there may be a net cost. To compute the cost of global warming we need to determine the net present value of the current and future benefits (negative costs) and the net present value of the possible future costs, after multiplying the possible future costs by the probability that they may occur. This calculation needs to be done at some chosen future date, the date should be far enough in the future that some positive costs could occur, but not so far in the future as to invalidate our climate and economic projections. Obviously, the longer in the future that we project the climate and its impacts, the less certain we are that they are valid. If the result is a negative cost number, then we have a net benefit to humankind and if positive we may have a problem if the cost is too high. Sounds simple enough, but the process is fraught with problems. In the words of IPCC:

The Perverse Panic over Plastic - The campaign against disposable bags and other products is harming the planet and the public.

Why do our political leaders want to take away our plastic bags and straws? This question is even more puzzling than a related one that I’ve been studying for decades: Why do they want us to recycle our garbage?

The two obsessions have some common roots, but the moral panic over plastic is especially perverse. The recycling movement had a superficial logic, at least at the outset. Municipal officials expected to save money by recycling trash instead of burying or burning it. Now that recycling has turned out to be ruinously expensive while achieving little or no environmental benefit, some local officials—the pragmatic ones, anyway—are once again sending trash straight to landfills and incinerators.

The plastic panic has never made any sense, and it’s intensifying even as evidence mounts that it’s not only a waste of money but also harmful to the environment, not to mention humans. It’s been a movement in search of a rationale for half a century. During the 1970s, environmentalists like Barry Commoner wanted the government to restrict the use of plastic because it was made from petroleum, which we needed to hoard because we would soon run out of it. When the “energy crisis” proved a false alarm, environmentalists looked for new reasons to panic.

Imagine there’s no bread
It’s easy if you try
No tacos or hot sauce,
Nothing cold or fried,
Imagine all the people living in the gulags

Imagine there’s no money
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to eat or drink
And no bacon too
Imagine all the people living short life spans ooooh

You may say I’m a commie
But I’m not the only one
And someday you will join us
Or we’ll shoot you in the face

Imagine no possessions
Because all your stuff was redistributed
Lots of greed and hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all your stuff, yeah

You may say I’m a commie
But I’m not the only one
Did you say you don’t like that?
Then it’s the gulag for you, son

Because California cares.

I realize this story is a bit off the beaten path but bear with me. Some legislators in California recently proposed a new bill that would specifically target the pornography industry in their state. But rather than trying to just stamp out porn, they are claiming that they want to protect women and cut down on human trafficking. (Both noble goals, to be sure.) But in order to do that, they want all of the adult film actors to be fingerprinted, go through a background check and complete regular training on a variety of safety-related subjects. The response from the Adult Performers Actors Guild was swift and decidedly negative. (NBC News)

GREENFIELD, WI — A 21-year-old Milwaukee man has been arrested and charged after Greenfield police say he held a bag containing 33 grams of cocaine in his mouth for several hours in an attempt to prevent police from finding the drugs.

Police said officers tried getting him to spit the bag out, tried the Heimlich maneuver, and eventually brought him to the hospital for X-rays before the bag suddenly appeared on the hospital room floor where he was being held.

According to Greenfield police, an officer on patrol at just after 11 p.m. on Feb. 11 near the 4600 block of S. 27th Street pulled over the driver of a blue BMW after the officer saw the BMW roll through a stop at a red light at W. Layton Ave.

Besides, let's assume they're right. Here's a question for the Horde (I have my own thoughts):
If the assessment is correct that we have only 12 years to achieve global carbon neutrality or we cross the Rubicon and it *cannot be fixed,* then what is the correct course of action?

That snowblower on the front of a truck is no big deal up north, at least for government road crews. They have had those for decades.They use them, with dump tricks, to cut down / cut back the snowbanks as the winter goes on and on.

Listen to the sounds of the guy's footsteps. That's the sound of snow when it's really cold. In the movie, "Nobody's Fool", that sound comes and goes, often during one day of the story, because scenes were filmed out of order for the story itself.

76 Rush says that the Corona Virus is basically a head cold, with a 98% survival rate.

The 1918 flu had a 97.5% survival rate.

If coronavirus has a 98% survival rate, and infects half the population of the United States, that's three million dead.

84 My thoughts on the 12 year crap:

If you really believe that, I see only one reasonable course of action. "Carbon neutrality" is not possible with causing probably billions of people to die. That is unacceptable. So instead, the right answer is to decontrol *everything.* Scrap all regulations, most taxes, all trade restrictions, all environmental controls, all of it. Maximize production at all costs and do it right now.

Work to improve the quality of life for as many people as humanly possible in the time we have left. Stockpile as much as possible for the future, and if you're feeling really ambitious try to seriously colonize a foreign body like the moon.

But if we're really about to cross the line and we can't help *but* cross it, then rape the Earth now to make it as good as we can make it in the time we have left. Production for its own sake and at all costs with no consideration of externalities is the best answer I have come up with.

I don't advocate this position, though, because the premise is bullshit.

The point is to make life harder for the normies, and especially the working class normies.


The town I moved to recently banned bags....and I noticed my neighbors now buy the bags they used to get for free (for doggie doo and wastebaskets) and toss out the bigger, bulkier paper bags.


Just ban shipping "recyclables" going overseas and you've got the actual problem solved. If liberals want to recycle plastic by all means lets build some facilities in the tonier neighborhoods in New Yuck and Mexifornia.

153 So, the Bernie Bros are publishing a lot of heartrending stories explaining why we need Medicare For All.

They all seem to think that Medicare For All will be "free" (the Tooth Fairy will pay for it), and that there will be no change in the quality of care with Medicare For All - that they will be able to waltz into any doctor's office and get treated immediately.

A Ph.D. student in "poetics" at SUNY Buffalo shared her tale of woe. She cut herself slicing bread, went to the ER, and was treated and released.

The she got a bill for $1400 - discounted to $650 for the university health insurance company, which paid $625. She had to pay $25 to go to the ER.

She thinks this means we need Medicare For All, because apparently emergency rooms won't be so expensive then, even if she only had to pay $25 under our evil, corrupt health care system.

Or maybe's she's complaining about having to pay the $25 - it's hard to tell.

There is a (Texas?) DJ named John Clay Wolfe who has a syndicated show on the local oldies station weekend mornings, that I would catch on the drive down to daughter and SIL's place to babysit.

He has a theory that every song of Young's could have the lyrics subbed out with "I slammed my peter in a bathroom door", and work just as well.

One Sunday morning, headed down 234 south at a good clip, I was laughing so hard I damn near wrecked the car as he offered, for proof, his own karaoke clip of "Heart of Gold" with the following:

"I fed my little dog
He wanted more
Slammed my peter in a bath-rooom doo-oor
And it's really sore..."

(sorry if that brings on the wailing evil kami of destruction, but every time I think about that, I start laughing again)

A fundamental difference between right-wingers and left-wingers is that right-wingers believe that people respond to incentives, and left-wingers don't.

Portland is proposing to spend an additional $250 million a year on the homeless. If this proposal passes (it probably will), only left-wingers will be shocked that there are more homeless in Portland than there were before.

(Or pretend to be shocked - the "homeless service agencies" in Portland are already figuring out how to divide the windfall. They approve of more homeless people moving to Portland.)

But he screamed after coming in third in Iowa. Behind John Kerry and John Edwards.

Posted by: blaster at February 24, 2020 10:36 PM (ZfRYq)



The scream is also a bit misleading, but still hilarious. The microphone was a direct feed into the video rather than arena speakers. The crowd is getting louder with their cheering which is causing Dean to get louder because he can't hear himself over the cheering and then it results in his psychotic "YEEEARGH!" which probably still would have been mocked if you couldn't hear it as clearly as we did.

Years ago, in the mid-80s, the dentist that my then wife and I used asked me what it would take to get a job working on the factory floor at the DuPont facility in Waynesboro, VA. I asked her why. She said that she wanted to throw over dentistry and take p something less burdensome. I assured her that a fiber spinning plant's factory floor was in no way less burdensome, but I said she'd be welcome to apply for a job there.

I do not know if she ever did apply -- we were there for only two years -- but she was relatively new in practice, married and had, I think, one kid. Oddest thing that I had ever encountered in the employment sphere up to that point.

In thinking about this, I would speculate that the surgeon is focusing on the upcoming details of the surgery, not the last time she peed.

And once she starts, she doesn't get a 15 minute break like a retail postal clerk, some of those surgeries take many hours.

But guessing that when this happens repeatedly, nurse can't just give the surgeon a backhand and in her best Cher-like voice, say "Snap out of it!".

Should one come up against the other, say in a major news story, ask yourself which would be "protected". Like if an illegal alien ran over a muslim, you'd never find out they were an illegal alien. Therefore that group goes higher on the list.

It changes all the time! I find it fascinating that Muslims really did make the top spot on the "real" one. They were #1 until around 2016.

329 Years ago, in the mid-80s, the dentist that my then wife and I used asked me what it would take to get a job working on the factory floor at the DuPont facility in Waynesboro, VA. I asked her why. She said that she wanted to throw over dentistry and take p something less burdensome. I assured her that a fiber spinning plant's factory floor was in no way less burdensome, but I said she'd be welcome to apply for a job there.

I do not know if she ever did apply -- we were there for only two years -- but she was relatively new in practice, married and had, I think, one kid. Oddest thing that I had ever encountered in the employment sphere up to that point.

Posted by: Ace's liver at February 24, 2020 11:04 PM (wGeit)

347 Hi everyone.

I watched "Spring," a movie from the same folks who made "The Endless" and "Resolution."

Both of those movies I recommend, "Endless" more than "Resolution."

But anyway, "Spring" was...unexpected. Unexpectedly sweet, which was odd. Well worth seeing if you're in the mood.

I'd rate the guys' work as "The Endless," followed by "Spring" and then "Resolution" at the bottom.

"Resolution" is good, it's just filled with unpleasant characters. "The Endless" has some good thought behind it and is far more thought-provoking.

And "Spring"...it's just as I said, very sweet. Difficult to do when there's a horrific monster at the center of the story, but the film pulls it off.

I'd recommend all three, really.

Coronavirus is basically highly contagious pneumonia, with a risk of ARDS

Of course part of Rush' attitude to it might be linked to the same minimizing of the risks of smoking that he used to do,as well as sone denial due to his current medical condition. I'm praying hard for him

she's started talking about that again, and i'll be damned if i can remember what the suggestion was...

any other 'rons/ettes with suggestions are encouraged to chime in.

needs to be fairly close to a decent sized town/city with all the amenities, but not necessarily IN town.

HOA's are a non-starter.

land for shooting/hunting/wine grapes/etc is a plus.

Get a Texas map, and a sharpie pen.

Draw an odd, kidney-bean shaped ovoid around Bandera, Kerrville, Fredricksburg (as far west as Harper, actually), and on North & East to encompass Marble Falls and Burnet. Throw Llano in that mix, just because.

Take it to the bank, that patch of Texas Real Estate is as pretty as you please, and there's abundant acreage on which to establish your Base of Operations, as desired.

You can go a bit closer to the D/FW area and investigate the area in and around Corsicana, site of the Tx Mo Meet. It fits your criteria, but will be in the path of Southward growth of the D/FW megaplex. Likely, the next decade will see the nature of the Town Center change, and not for the better.

You can do all the "online" research on those towns as you want. But you're going to have to fly in, rent a car and go check 'em all out in person, to get a true sense of the world, here.

Good luck, amigo!

The answer is blowing with the snow.
Posted by: USNtakim
--------

It was probably what he had available. Note that adopting the separate engine was probably easier than trying to work up a PTO from the truck. I also suspect that the blower uses a good bit of power. Also, the blower portion runs at constant speed, to blow the snow away, that would not be the case with a PTO.

I'm with you on dynasties but think about it, log. Another Trump vs some loser traitor Republican (the most likely other option) is a no-brainer.

Plus the movement is very powerful. You get someone in 2024 who is still drawing those "Trump" crowds? That's a big deal.

The Left will kill this movement the moment it shows any weakness. Pence getting 1,200 people to a rally is not gonna be a good look.

523 Nurse,

Here's how I deal with the stuff. If it's something I love, I keep it. If I can't stand it or have no use for it, it's donated or thrown out. That leaves the maybes. If it's something sentimental, do you have to keep the object? Or would a picture serve to keep the memory. If I'm really not sure about something, I keep it.

I have to try and figure out what should go to my stepson. He doesn't have a lot of space. And I'm making myself get rid of somethings. I have this electrical manual from maybe 1920 that my first husband got. I think it's time to let go of it.

What helped us the most was deciding if something was "Tennessee worthy". Those are my keepers.

528 That snowblower on the front of a truck is no big deal up north, at least for government road crews. They have had those for decades.They use them, with dump tricks, to cut down / cut back the snowbanks as the winter goes on and on.

Listen to the sounds of the guy's footsteps. That's the sound of snow when it's really cold. In the movie, "Nobody's Fool", that sound comes and goes, often during one day of the story, because scenes were filmed out of order for the story itself.

And believe it, she scared the bejeezus out of the Left in a way no one else did. A pretty, funny, mainstream, down to earth, conservative type who wasn't afraid to go after their Sacredest Cow of all? Gave them nightmares. But the GOPe did their dirty work for them!

592 When I first moved here, there were boxes of stuff from the fire in 2006. It was professionally cleaned but no one had gone through it. And his late wife had all this stuff from her parents. People gave them things after the fire too. And my husband would want to look at everything you were throwing out. He did get a little bit better about that.

I spent a lot of my life living in travel trailers. So I tended to collect small things. If I get upset at the thought of getting rid of something, I know it's not time to get rid of it.

593 Since bags, be they paper or plastic, contain a lot of carbon, why is throwing them in a landfill bad, exactly? Does that not amount to "sequestering" carbon, which is supposed to be a Good Thing?
Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at February 24, 2020 11:47 PM (KL3tU)

It's one of the measures by which you can clearly tell they aren't serious about solving their supposed crisis.

The plastic grocery bag ban is about behavioral training, forcing everyone to adopt "green" policy because green = good. Just like absurd recycling and garbage sorting ordinances. After 50 years of reduce, re-use, recycle propaganda they can't go around letting people know that the most environmentally friendly option is to toss plastic in the trash.

Parts, strings, gadgets, stands, straps, tools, etc. Guitar amps? Same shit all over again, parts, electrical tools, pieces, vacuum tubes, cords, extra speakers, etc. Harleys, holy shit, the support alone for just that eliminates the garage right off the map. Tools for the cars, tools for the harleys, tools for house renovations, tools for the music shit. I wouldn't even know what to get rid of.

726 Long quote:

The real problem, Buttigieg was saying, isn't in Iran or in Saudi Arabia. It's in America. Until we achieve some impossible standard of human rights perfection, we have no right to tell Muslim countries that they shouldn't hang gay people. Only, one day, when the Oscars are truly diverse, as HRC, GLAAD, and OutRight want them to be, maybe we can address the executions of gay people in Muslim countries.

And probably not then either.

That's why in the argument between Grenell and Buttigieg, they chose Buttigieg over actually preventing the killing of gay people. It's also why President Trump chose Grenell.

The gay rights groups that attacked Grenell have shown where their true priorities lie.

Just as he had in Germany and at the United Nations, Grenell exposed the hypocrisy of human rights activists who use gay rights as a weapon to enforce a larger politically correct consensus with no interest in actually protecting gay people from harm.

The Democrats are promising gay people a place in an intersectional coalition, in which Rep. Omar and Islamists rank ahead of them, but in which the campaign for Oscar representation will go on. Meanwhile, President Trump and Richard Grenell, his Acting Director of National Intelligence, will actually protect the lives of gay people against Islamic terror and violence. Like the Pulse massacre.

President Trump's new appointee has actually fought to stop Iran from killing gay people while Buttigieg and his political friends will fight to see that Iran gets all the money it needs to keep on killing gay people and everyone else.

The Springfield has a Hart 7x57, 20 in. barrel, 1:8 twist, medium spotter contour, on order.

And I just got a bag of 100 stripper-clips for the .30-06 rounds, which will as it happens, fit perfectly on the 7x57 rims.

In that it's got a truck-gun future, I'm looking at drilling/tapping the front receiver ring for a short section of Picatinny, and a red-dot sight thereon.

Co-witnessed with Iron sights, mounted to the new barrel. Factory locatons, but height-aligned to work with the red dot.

Leaving the rear receiver ring untouched, with stripper-clip guides intact.

It's all going into a cheap, but action bedded, floated barrel, Ram Line injected stock.

All I as is Minute of Antifa at 200 yards.

I'll call that a success.

Posted by: rhennigantx at February 25, 2020 06:14 AM (JFO2v)

827 There's a story in today's DM about how the usually long line of "immigrants" (illegal aliens) that line up to apply for food stamps and Medicaid in Maryvale, AZ (outside Phoenix) has disappeared, because the illegals are afraid they won't get a green card now if they're getting welfare benefits.

How many years has the left been telling Americans that illegal aliens don't get taxpayer-funded benefits, so we shouldn't be complaining about that? Of course, anybody who has been paying attention at all knows that's a crock of shit, and has been for many years. Illegals apply for and receive billions of dollars' worth of many different types of welfare benefits in the U.S.

Now lefty "activist" groups are screaming (much like that totes impartial SCOTUS justice Sotomayor) that Trump is "punishing immigrants" by trying to enforce the law that says foreigners who can't or won't support themselves and are sucking down U.S. welfare benefits (i.e. "public charges") should not get green cards.

The activists also say that Trump is making poverty in the U.S. worse by denying these poor, impoverished illegal aliens the taxpayer-funded welfare benefits like food stamps and Medicaid that they need. But why should American taxpayers be incentivizing the poor from other nations to come and live here, on the backs of working Americans? That's insane, and it is exactly what the Obama administration and previous administrations were doing, with entirely predictable results: more poor, welfare-seeking illegals coming here to live off us.

Trump is trying to put a stop to it, and it's long overdue. Trump is not "punishing immigrants," contrary to Ms. Sotomayor's shrieking, he is instead "protecting U.S. taxpayers" from the massive abuse they've been suffering at the hands of illegal aliens for decades now.

Yep, for decades now all we've heard from the left is how much illegal aliens contribute to our economy. They're all so honest and hard-working, and they're doing all those nasty jobs that Americans don't want to do, and they're a net asset to our economy because they produce far more than they cost us, and all the rest of that bullshit.

But now we're being told that illegal aliens can't make it without the billions of dollars a year in food stamps and Medicaid and other welfare benefits they get from U.S. taxpayers, and if Trump cuts them off from the U.S. welfare spigot, they'll be starving to death in the streets.

As usual, the left tries to have it both ways. Open borders, or massive welfare state. Pick one, lefties. Only one.

884 So a little more Maryland insider baseball.

In recent months, maybe two year, there has been an observe phenomena taking place throughout Maryland town halls ad community meetings.

When a progressive office holder is here to discuss their progressive plans to increase spending, there is ALWAYS a member of the audience who will be recognized by the speaker to share their thoughts.

And inevitably, this person, with the physical appearance similar to the greater number of attendees will stand up and thank the politician/candidate for wanting to raise their own personal taxes, as they are delighted to contribute more toward rescuing the downtrodden from their meager existence.

This happens EVERY time there is one of these events.

And having attended many such events, it is always the same faces, as if they are traveling the same appearance circuit as the invited guest/speaker is.

Now figure the odds that buried within this latest poll, only THREE percent of Marylanders want to see their taxes increased.


Yet these folk show up at every Town Hall, preaching the same thanks for hiking their taxes.

Almost as if it's an orchestrated dog and pony show, to fool the rubes.

Talk about blame, watching the 7 World One Planet on TV.
Attenborough tells about the Antarctic, we've only began exploring and finding out about it 200 years ago...10 minutes later in the show, The climate change is affecting so much of this area. Places that had snow on it during the summer 15 years ago, are now plain rock.

Just looked odd, plus she had to keep pushing it away so she could read her eulogy, as it was blocking her eye.

I was imagining her in the stylist's chair, before the event, saying "yes, let's comb half my hair down into my face, and gel it so it stays there. That's such a good look." I mean, WTH? I understand the woman is grieving, and I want to cut her some slack, because losing a child is a gut-wrenching horror no parent should ever have to experience. But her hair stylist really should be shot. Or at least fired. Or reprimanded, or something.

Protester Stopping Traffic Struck By Annoyed Commuter

That's a clickbait headline. I learned that from the allegedly professional media.

But it's an accurate headline.

No, she wasn't hit by a car.

She was hit by a traffic cone thrown by a pissed off commuter.

How effective is a traffic cone as a thrown weapon?

Based on this video -- Not too shabby!!! It scored 7 points of STUN damage
and one BODY plus 3" of knockback.*

Also, Sundown Joe is getting ready to lope off into the sunset:


* Can you name the RPG system? Man, did I go berserk when I first read this system's rules. It could well be the single most influential RPG ruleset apart from D&D.

well they're determined to make it an Ur-System, like GURPS, with rule modules to cover every conceivable genre, and that results in incredible bloat.

Also, it just doesn't make sense to use the math-heavy, engineering-type feel of Champions for, say, a medieval fantasy game. Champions math/engineering feel works well for supers, which have sci-fi feel.

Anyway, they've spent 25 years bloating the rules to make it cover every genre instead of just focusing on what it did so well.

Actually, it works astonishingly well. You strip out all the superpowers and you have the core of a fast, easy to use game that doesn't require all the math to build a character. And the rules allow for either really simple, cinematic combat like a white hat "shoot the gun out of their hands" style or a really gritty, bloody, realistic one, depending on what dials you turn.

RPG= Role Playing Game. Lots of books and rules and dice and other crap I can no longer remember. It was entertaining in my yute. I seemed to be more interested in creating characters with odd combinations and see how far I'd get. Most never made too far. I was not a serious player playing a game that others took to seriously. Plus, my attention span could be counted in seconds while a teenager. You had to pay attention in D&D.

207 You ever thrown a traffic cone? It has an odd center of gravity

Reminds me. Tennis Racket Theorem.

Spinning a 3-D object on the long axis is stable. On the short axis, also stable. But on the middle axis - unstable. So if you hold a tennis racket by the handle and throw it up so it spins and you catch it by the handle again, it will rotate while it spins.

212 Role Playing Games are just a system of rules around "lets pretend." You can call it interactive storytelling or whatever but basically its "OK i'm a wizard and you're a princess and lets go kill the dragon" when you're a little kid. Or playing cowboys and indians or having a tea party with your stuffed animals.

Its the grown up version of what everyone already knows how to do, letting you BE the characters instead of just watch them or read about them in a book or in on the screen.

243 It's stuff like "Obvious Accessible Focus" that is just jarring for me when it comes to stuff like weapons which you'd just assume that of.

Well you front load all that stuff so when it comes up in the game you know how everything interacts. Its an obvious accessible focus, so everyone can tell you're using it and what it does, its easy to grab away from you, and they can use it now, too. Like a gun.

But if its Thor's hammer, then its not; nobody can take it, nobody can use it but the "worthy" even though its pretty obviously a magic hammer.

Defining stuff like that makes it easy to use in play, but it front loads the work so making a character is more complicated and often intimidating.

You really have to factor in weight distribution and aerodynamics. Your traffic cone is heavily weighted at the base for obvious reasons and it increases the rate of spin.

And while it spins relatively true in a straight-line its large surface area makes the cone susceptible to wind gusts which need to be accounted for.

Everyone can toss a cone but it takes a lifetime to master.

296 Yeah, my best friend, when playing this game, got shot in the face with a hunting arrow, which penetrated to his soft palate, causing him to crash an ATV into a barbed wire fence, more-or-less fucking up his day, but good.

It was hardcore.

299 It wasn't LARPing in the traditional sense, though. The local hillbilly interpretation of "playing D&D" consisted of chopping a cudgel off an aspen tree, wrapping it in duct tape to blunt it (a little bit) and then beating the shit out of each other with clubs.

Any candidate like Biden is going to have small, unenthusiastic crowds - when your voting base consists of "people who like the establishment," they aren't going to be enthusiastic enough to crowd in like for Bernie and Trump. They are content, not angry and wanting change.

*puts it in park and gets out*

"Hi. What's your name?

"Nice to meet you. Care to tell me why you're standing in the road?

"Hmm. That sounds very serious. What do you hope to accomplish by this?

"Well, you've certainly raised my awareness, I'll tell you that.

"Okay, please listen to me, very carefully. I'm going to go get back in my truck, put my seatbelt on and put it in gear. And [blank], please listen, if you are still standing here I will fucking run you over."

I wouldn't actually do this, probably, because that would undoubtedly make it premeditated or something-- plus the simple fact of the matter is that unless I was driving someone to the hospital or something I wouldn't consider it worthy of driving over someone in a truck. But I would definitely think about it.

386 I wouldn't actually do this, probably, because that would undoubtedly make it premeditated or something-- plus the simple fact of the matter is that unless I was driving someone to the hospital or something I wouldn't consider it worthy of driving over someone in a truck. But I would definitely think about it.

Make sure that you cut and paste your text into a document that you email to yourself so when you do get arrested for mowing down a protester, you can claim that you would never deliberately run someone over and the self addressed email is proof.

In Vermont, Sanders didn't have a choice. The Vermonters might be Commies, but they're attached to their guns. I have no doubt that Sanders would be as anti-2nd Amendment as Gov. Blackface if he was elected president. After all, Sanders changed his tune about open borders.

I just think it's amusing that Bloomie thinks Sanders stance on guns is going to hurt him. The blue staters will ignore it and the red staters will like Sanders more.

You would think that all of the recipients of this media spend would be egging him on by lying about his deficiencies so that he keeps spending and spending and their bank accounts get larger and larger.

In the wonderful world of media spending, every time you click on a link, an auction goes out to bid on who gets the chance to place an advertisement in your feed or page. When you have Bloomberg acting as the perpetual highest bidder, it raises the cost of advertising on everyone.

458 @379 Actually a lot of women play RPGs now, which makes sense to me, as girls learn to play roles and take on a persona very well at a young age.

-------------------

Dungeons and Dragons night at my Friendly Local Game Store (FLGS) has a pretty good turn-out of both men and women. More of the former than the latter, but there's a sizable female contingent. The store has lots of table space devoted to open games, so this isn't just a "two groups playing, and a few of the players are women" sort of thing. It's "seven or eight tables with games, and every table has at least one - and frequently more - woman playing". The other game that gets a decent (though smaller) female contingent of players is Magic: The Gathering. The women who play that are almost always Asian. My guess is that they got started playing that game after watching their boyfriends play it.

Other RPGs are played in smaller numbers, and it's an even guess whether their will be women in those gaming groups.

The store has a board-game night for board and non-collectable card games, and there tend to be a lot of women present on those nights.

Women are all but non-existent in the miniatures wargame groups.

464 The store has a board-game night for board and non-collectable card games, and there tend to be a lot of women present on those nights.

board games have become surprisingly popular all the sudden. I think its a mix of nostalgia and gamers wanting to play something more socially acceptable.

I knew Tanzanians who did medical school in Hungary, then came to the US.

Their bills were paid by the extended family, and the students were responsible to them.

Africans, in their own way, have strong functioning families. At least the ones who finish MD school.

Luckily for me, my parents were from different ethnic groups and my dad's family had a history of living amd mixing and marrying people of other groups. So we did not grow up with tribalism and it's still foreign to me.

Actually, my mom's family did too. One older sister married a white American (his family wasn't thrilled and they cut him off for a while - it was in the 60s; ours didn't mind) and another married an African from another country.

556 Just before I shipped off to Fort Sill, I had come back from a road trip to see the family. I realized I had almost no food, and payday was a couple of days out.

I had nothing but Cream-of-wheat, and a few cans of pork and beans.

There's a hippie store where I grew up that advertised it's "Earth Crystals" and "Lemurian Crystals."

If you're not familiar with Lemuria, it's the bonkers concept that a former content - encompassing the southern edge of modern India, Sri Lanka (as it's highest peak) and stretching to Madagascar. The rationale for this is the presence of Lemurs on Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and Madagascar. Therefore, there is clearly and obviously a lost continent. It was the putative Tamil empire before it got swallowed by the sea.

This was invented by Tamil nationalists who want a Tamil country (bits of southern India and Sri Lanka) to provide historical claims to the territory.

It always amused me to see the concept being used by an wizened old white guy in rural CO to hawk healing crystals.

Lesbian YouTuber: I'm Quitting the Left. They're Cruel and They're Insane.

"I don't think like these people, and I no longer want to be associated with them.

"I've reached Peak LGBT, and this is my coming out.

...

"Never have I [before] witnessed literal mentally ill individuals who are latching themselves on to the LGBT community without actually being LGBT for the sake of oppression point, external validation, and sympathy."

At this point in the video, she puts up headlines about Jonathan "Jessica" Yaniv.

As Comics Matter has noted: There's no way for a progressive white man to ever be at the top of the Oppression Pyramid -- which is where he wants to be; most cultists want to be at the top of the cult, not the bottom -- so some progressive white men just say "I'm trans" and then try to get lesbians to have sex with them.


"...

"When people say that straight black men are the White Men of black people and I know what they mean... I no longer want to be a part of this."

She means: It's even worse that I've been forced to learn their bizarre cult doctrine so that I know what "the white men of black people" even means.

I feel that way myself. There are dozens of absurd SJW neologisms and Cult Passphrases that I've been forced to learn.

And I don't want to know their Cult Doctrines. I'm not in their fucking Cult.


"The LGBT community has become a safe haven for the mentally unstable who are not seeking help (and who are also not in any sense of the word 'queer')."

Good video. Tim Pool's video about it follows the actual "coming out" video.

Update! Thanks to Chique d'Afrique, here is Tim Pool's interview with this YouTuber, Arielle Scarcella.

Speaking of "coming out" -- Sargon of Akkad mentioned a week back that he teases Tim Pool on twitter as being someone who "desperately attempts to not be Red Pilled," that is, someone who's actually more or less a conservative but just can't quite Come Out of the Closet.

Sargon noted that this was just "teasing."

But, you know, a lot of teasing is getting at something true.

I mean...

I haven't seen this much denial of one's actual orientation since David French!

Here are a few more interesting videos.

This is from last week, but Tucker Carlson was gleeful about Mike Bloomberg's disastrous debate performance.

Another Carlson video from last week, this time addressing the problem that may doom America: That its self-styled "elite" are incompetents and have given the country 40 years of failure, and demand we give them 40 years more.

Finally, Andrew Yang says the unsayable: The Democrat Party, allegedly the "party of the working class," is in fact against the working class and the working class knows it.


The Democrat Party -- and large swathes of the Republican "leadership" class -- are only supporters of the Gentry Liberal class.

Three townies (or sets of townie); three people who aren't in the main plot and exist to annoy the main characters, or else to be people who get murdered by the demon.

33 @10: "Is she tired of the Left, or is she tired to having to fight for supremacy in it?"

Ultimately, the T (and Q) in LGBTQ+ that has become a dominant force; supreme intersectionality.

Honestly, twenty, thirty, or fifty years ago, gays and lesbians barely got along outside of an occasional pride march; nowadays, they're strong allies in the bigger crowd.

It's the ultra-queer "nothing matters" crowd that's taken over, and they're pissing off gays who see themselves as men, and lesbians who see themselves as women.

35 The problem with the Democrats is that they've listened to, promoted, and encouraged the literal lunatics -- not "wow he's crazy" but clinically insane -- among them so long that they've taken over. Now nobody can say 'that's too far' without their entire system unraveling. There's probably some kind of syndrome or law involved here, but the Dems are in bad shape until demographics can save them.

But will it be in time? And will their crazy drive away the young people they are counting on being their core, as they age?

I got the Endura Pro. That is the same as the "Ultra Classic" but includes the TrackPoint-type mouse stick.

Don't get this one. Get the Ultra Classic. The stick is nice for quick local mouse movements, but due to the depth of the keys it sticks up too far. I hit it while typing, particularly when striking the "G" key. The Real McCoy IBM is better in this regard. From a typing standpoint, though, all of Unicomp's are good. I had an Ultra Classic before I managed to ruin it (damn near impossible), and I prefer it to this new one somewhat.

Is it aggressive use, or is it due to environment? If it's just aggressive use, get one of these. They keycaps are modular (the letter-printed part is a separate piece) and easily replaced. The ink is dye-sublimated (e.g., bonded with the plastic) and *very* difficult to wear off. And the buckling-spring design is good for millions of keystrokes. And the baseplate is steel. It is quite heavy, even in its downsized package (mine is probably 4.5-5 lbs). Any keyboard that can also double as a close-quarters defensive weapon is a good thing.

Warren and Sanders are the same candidate. They're both vying for the radical lane.

I think in the past, the various advocacy groups could live on their islands and not argue directly, as the establishment distributed the crumbs to all.

The Union white guys could thus ignore the feminists and lesbians both of whom ignored the black inner city activists and everyone ignored the discredited leftist core that just voted along with the rest.

Now, though, they have shifted left enough that the leftist SJW war of all against all is inside the building, and the losers on the one pyramid of SJW lore are feeling what non-Democrats have been getting for decades.

The Union white guys could thus ignore the feminists and lesbians both of whom ignored the black inner city activists and everyone ignored the discredited leftist core that just voted along with the rest.

Now, though, they have shifted left enough that the leftist SJW war of all against all is inside the building, and the losers on the one pyramid of SJW lore are feeling what non-Democrats have been getting for decades.

yes, I think you're right. I was going to say something basically similar about the intensification of Social Hierarchy competition, due to bigger benefits to those on top and bigger penalties to those on bottom, which have made this an open war.

She's an evil monster that is a spider-themed villainous seductive creature.

A couple of SJW women on the group went absolutely ballistic for daring to show a woman as a deceptive seductress who evilly hides her monstrous nature.

She's a spider monster you idiotic bints. They went on and on, then started to attack me for EVERYTHING no matter what I typed. I messaged the group leader and told them these crazy bitches wouldd estroy his group and he laughed at me. I left. Its been a couple years now.

Yep, isn't this basically what people mean by the phrase 'they'll just shoot you last' when they talk about the idiocy of the Left's alliance with Islam?

The Left welcomed in the SJWs and radicals and mental disordered when they were all attacking conservatives and Republicans together.

Maybe; I dunno.

I suspect Tim is an idealist at heart, and somewhere deep in his soul, he really does hope things could succeed in a more perfect, socialistic way.

And I don't mean anarchist is the "burn it all down" sense; more like a "ceteris paribus; we should rebuild society from the ground up" sense.

His slide to MAGA-dom has reached the point where he recently decided that he will vote for no Democrat, due to their conspiracy mongering and cheating. It might have been selling out to Bloomberg that had him writing off the entire party, even if Tulsi or Yang got nom'ed. I think he will not vote Trump this time, unless he has a revelation.

Rooting is the wrong word. Like Trump is a symptom, not the cause, the same goes for Bernie. The anti-American crazies have gone all-in. From this defeat should come some introspection on the Dems part, but I'm not so sure. Labour still hasn't come to their senses in the UK.

Unlike some, I think Trump will beat Bernie like a drum.

I am hoping that Bernie Sanders wins the nomination and stays exactly as he has been: honest about his socialism and communism support. Because then we could actually see a clear difference in the candidates.

If any other candidate wins, they will simply "moderate" what they say to try to appear "moderate" on issues and fool the low information voters with a good performance. Even though every single Democrat candidate is 100% in lock-step with what Bernie Sanders believes and says.

So yeah, go Bernie go. It will be great to finally have the socialism and communism ideology of the Democrat Party out there for all to see.

she can be funny. It's humor that is her draw, not insight.

depends on the subject. Her reaction videos to SJWs can be funny.

She had a joke I liked. It was random. Instead of saying "Whom," she would say "Whomst," and really emphasize the -st.

She would say stuff like "WHOMST is doing this to me?!!"

But then, I've felt that people have had it since 2012, and it's only gotten worse.



It's truly amazing what just a couple of years of sanity and normalcy can do. People now have something to compare Leftardism to, against all odds.


PDT's election was a godsend in many ways.

Rooting is the wrong word. Like Trump is a symptom, not the cause, the same goes for Bernie. The anti-American crazies have gone all-in. From this defeat should come some introspection on the Dems part, but I'm not so sure. Labour still hasn't come to their senses in the UK.

Unlike some, I think Trump will beat Bernie like a drum.
Posted by: Circa (Insert Year Here) at February 24, 2020 07:45 PM (JCrfD)

If Bernie is the selection of the voters of the Democratic party, then I want him to be the nominee. Even the most terrible nominee can be survived.

What can't be survived is corruption. And the Dem party is totally corrupt and needs to be reformed, or killed. The country needs a second party to check the impulses of the first party, even Trumpism might go too far.

The Uniparty is the most dangerous, a single dominating party slightly less so, but a stable, nation loving alternative party is what the country needs to form.

362 My new zomblog post on "The Progressive Stack":

http://www.zombietime.com/zomblog/?p=2183

The Progressive Stack As It Now Stands

This sign was recently spotted in the window of a café in Oakland, CA:

{pic}

It's a perfect example of what is known as the "progressive stack," a ranked hierarchy of minority groups, with those deemed to be the most oppressed given the highest status.

When the term "progressive stack" first appeared a few years ago, it specifically referred to the waiting list for speakers at left-wing meetings, with minorities being allowed to speak first ahead of white men. But disputes arose as to which minorities got to speak ahead of which other minorities, so a formalized ranking of minority demographics evolved, with those higher on the list getting priority over those lower down. (Needless to say, white cisgendered able-bodied straight men by definition are at the very bottom of the progressive stack, and are ranked so low that they are always excluded from the list altogether.)

From its humble beginnings as a guide for who gets to cut in line for the microphone at socialist gatherings, the progressive stack has evolved into a new caste system, a complete re-ordering of social classes intended to reverse historical mainstream norms, with straight people, white people and men now deemed to be the new Untouchables.

Because no one person or organization is in charge of the progressive stack, it is always in flux, with the ranking of each group's oppression-level constantly shifting up and down according to current social trends and fads. So it's wise to check in every now and then to see where the rankings currently stand, since these rankings determine the rules for all social interactions in 21st-century America.

The sign (which even appears distantly in Google Street View) lists the progressive stack rankings as of February 2020 like so:

# Take Care of

Muslim
Black
Women
Queer
Latinx
Native
Immigrant
P.O.C.
Trans
Disabled
L.G.B.T.Q.+
Low Income
Activist
Refugee
Undocumented
Incarcerated

Let the intersectionality flow through you.

Not a man

"Significantly, "Trans" and "Queer" both appear on the list twice -- first as separate standalone categories, and then for a second time as the "T" and "Q" in "L.G.B.T.Q.+." Yet there is no standalone category for "Lesbian" and "Gay" -- they get relegated to mere abbreviation status in a longer acronym. This too reveals current social trends: Transsexuals ("Trans") and people of nonstandard self-defined gender status ("Queer") are trendy now in the victimhood Oppression Olympics, whereas mere lesbians and gays have fallen in stature, being now perceived as having become comparatively privileged due to their decades-long prior success at being normalized."

Well, if I had to pick just one, and only one, specific "swing voter" group that defines national elections, then it'd be that mythical "married white suburban female" crowd.

Obviously, it's not all of them, but many were more liberal in the youth and young adulthood, before marriage, and those instincts and tendencies don't just evaporate after marriage or childbirth.

Plenty of his cronies have compared Trump firectly to Nazis, and they own it.

Posted by: logprof


It was also a stupid analogy, as Matthews said the Germans "overwhelmed" the Maginot Line.

The Germans went AROUND the Maginot Line, going through Belgium and the Low Countries and through the Ardennes.

Matthews is an idiot.

People like Pool are curious cases. They self-identify as liberal, because the few the Left as being the "compassionate" end of the political spectrum, and don't want to view themselves as conservative, because they perceive it to be the "cruel" end of it - and nobody wants to believe they are cruel.

But, they also (correctly) perceive the overall behavior of the Left as pathological, abusive, and controlling.

Somewhere in there, they fail to make the connection... they don't stop to consider that when psychopaths like these propose a welfare program or champion a given minority group in the name of compassion, it is actually for the same reason as they do all the other things. It aids them in their pathological, abusive drive for total control.

They let their self-regard blind them to the obvious reality.

--The secretary of St. Thomas More when I was at FSU was a black Catholic lady. I don't think that St. Augustine of Hippo was *really* black, but commentary at the time mentioned he was darker than the average Roman citizen.

475 Chris Taylor, they hate Pence because he is going to put gays in camps as POTUS. Yes, they think this. Especially those on the left that are LGBT. It is known. It is all projection of course, because that is exactly what they would do to conservatives if given the chance.

Most LGBT I know are lovely, interesting ppl. But they have other interests outside their sexuality that define them. It is the ones whose sole identifying personality trait is being LGBT that are the sanctimonious, Puritan bores.

I by and large agree, but for the "T" part... every one of I've met in my personal experiences cannot shut up about it, ever. Ever. Now, I could be missing ones who are ver convincing, and keep it to themselves, but I sorta doubt it. It's really hard to pass as a chick.

Supply chain disruptions are taking place.

Tariffs were a shot over the bow.

Corona virus is exacerbating and accelerating this.

A low-cost labor environment is needed.

And PDT is in India.

484 I think that Tim Pool is probably right where he used to be, at least mostly; a capitalist who believes in a big welfare state and personal tolerance.

A "they left me, I didn't leave them" sort of thing, mostly.

After all it's been a while since the left pretended to value tolerance and now they're completely "out" about capitalism being evil, ie., yes the alternative IS socialism and no, socialism isn't merely a big welfare state.

More Democrat Doomsaying Over the Socialist Petrograd-Honeymooner Bernie Sanders
Plus: Minnesota in Play?

I love it.


Some Democrats are freaking out.

The'íre freaking out at prospects that Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., could win the Democratic nomination. They worry about how Sanders matches up against President Trump. They fret that Sandersís socialism could inhibit his ability to woo swing voters, those in rural areas, the upper Midwest and conservative Democrats generally.

...

"It's bad," said one freshman Democrat from a swing district. "We are having conversations about how to deal with this."

"If [Sanders] is the nominee, we lose," said one Democrat.

...

"I think that [Sanders] can be challenging in parts of the country that we have to win in order to win the presidency," said Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., who recently gave up on his own Quixotic presidential bid.

"We have to win Pennsylvania," said Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa. "[If] we lose there, it's over."

Democrats are planning to run "hyperlocal" campaigns where they essentially pretend that there is no presidential contest going on, and no national issues in play, and instead run on... filling potholes?

And speaking of the Upper Midwest:

Those are the best findings in the poll for Trump.

Other findings aren't so good -- but they're also not awful, especially when you consider the typical liberal skew of polls.


Statewide, 52% of voters disapprove of Trumpís job performance, while 44% approve of his work in the White House...

The presiden'ís latest approval ratings mark a slight improvement from an October Minnesota Poll, when the presidentís approval rating dipped to 40%. Fifty-six percent of voters held negative views of his tenure at that time.

So he gained +8 in net job approval? That's better than slight, I think.

...

Among Republicans, 92% approve of Trump's performance, while 97% of Democrats disapprove of his time as president. Independents were more evenly split, with 48 % holding a negative view of the president and 44 % viewing his work in a positive light. The telephone poll of 800 registered voters was conducted Feb. 17-19 and has a margin of error of +/-3.5 %.

Eh, not terrible. Not with Bernie Sanders as an opponent.

Prediction: RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA will not be a major attack line by Democrats this go-round.

Update: WRONG! See update below.


In Hennepin and Ramsey counties, seven in ten voters disapprove of Trump's performance. But in the metro suburbs, which are expected to be heavily targeted by both parties this November, 54 % voiced approval. The president's support was strongest in southern Minnesota, where nearly six in ten voters approve of his performance. Voters in northern Minnesota were evenly split, 48% to 48%.

The president got higher marks for his handling of the economy and jobs, which is emerging as a central theme of his re-election pitch. Half of the voters polled said he is doing a good job in that area, while 43 % disapproved.

Support for impeachment has fallen sharply:

A Minnesota Poll conducted weeks before the House voted to formally authorize proceedings found that Minnesotans were evenly split, with 47% of voters approved of the idea.

Now, in the wake of the U.S. Senateís voted to acquit the president, 42% of voters think impeachment was a good idea. Half were opposed... About six in ten independents said they opposed impeachment.

These numbers are not great, but they do show Minnesota -- a Blue State, last time around -- is in play.

Obama won it by 250,000 votes; Trump lost it in 2016 by 40,000.

I can't imagine that Trump has lost support since 2016, given his accomplishments and the fact that the world has not blown up the eighteen times predicted.

Update: The Democrat Establishment, represented here by Serpenthead James Carville, is now arguing that Putin is helping Sanders win the primary so that his Spetznaz sleeper agent Donald Trump can win the general:

20 I don't believe anything the Democrats say. So if they say they're worried that Sanders will cost them the presidency, I think it means they see Sanders as their best chance to get their way.

They're playing "Oh, woe is us" to fool the voters into thinking "Oh, Sanders won't win, so my vote for Trump isn't needed."

Never, ever believe anything they say.

I think if Bernie is screwed out of the nomination, it puts states in play that otherwise wouldn't have gone for PDT.

This is a group that's going to be in a big pickle should The Bern get the nomination. They're mostly UMC bitches who are EXTREMELY class conscious. Yeah they'll virtue signal about brown bodies in cages and all the rest of the crap, but when the rubber hits the road and their position is threatened it's going to be very interesting to see what happens. Abolishing private insurance? HUGE tax increases that are going to cunt punch so hard they'll leave a mark? Can't drive that huge SUV anymore because of the Green Deal? Forget box wine these bitches will be turning tricks for a bottle of two buck chuck.

Ain't no way these people are going to vote against their pocketbook. They'd throw a brown baby into a fire if it means keeping the insurance and the SUV and the money and all the other trappings that let them indulge in their gay little virtue signaling dramas. My guess is they'll keep mouthing the platitudes right up until they vote for Trump in the voting booth.

The suburbs have always been decently Red. I live in them.

Minneapolis and Saint Paul are completely blue.

"Outstate" (everywhere else) is purplish-leaning-red.

Of 87 counties, 9 were blue, 78 were red.

That's the way it's been for the 29 years I've lived here. Using Horde year-counting techniques.

I'm not saying Minnesota is not in play, because it was in play last time. Trump lost by 44K, but the Real Republican McMuffin got 53K. Alleged-libertarian 112K, Green 36K.

So we were a Red state that voted for Clinton due to all the third-party-ism.

And we look no different this year based on that polling.

The problem is that we are the John McCain of voting. Everyone wants to be a fcuking maverick.

The interesting thing is that Trump appears to be acting as if they were in play, or at least doing his best to challenge these states' uber-Lefty governance. Examples include: DHS pushing back on NY non-cooperation on drivers license inf (Trusted Traveler, etc.), Trump last week using EPA (IIRC) to finally) redirect water back to Central Valley CA farmers. He's also warning he will do something about homelessness.


Wonder if those who are not radicalized will be red-pilled by him barging into their states and fixing things their sweet-talking Dem overlords have been promising to fix, or forcing on residents over their objections, will be red-pilled?

He's taking the fight to these blue states, not writing them off.

Man, I sure hope that recent story about what Clint Eastwood said regarding Trump and Bloomberg is wrong. And I'm willing to cut him some slack even if you did say it -- as the rest of his body of work and personal life outweighs it significantly.

But, still ... I hate it when people, even on our side, criticize his empty chair routine at the Republican convention. I thought it was one of the funniest things I'd ever seen.

I'd rather the Dem nominee be terrible than hope Democrats sit out or go 3rd party.

It's EXTREMELY rare for Democrats to really defect in big numbers. Their livelihood depends on someone with a (D) after their name.

Republicans definitely will, see Perot for a good example.
