6 Denial of racism is covert (acceptable) white supremacy?

7 Hey, I'm sure the major issues in scientific publications around a complete lack of any actual peer review, replication, and the need to simply publish no matter what (from both "scientists" and journals) will never have any sort of negative effect on how the public at large views scientists in general.

Nope, not one bit.

It just means in the end "white supremacy" will be watered down to mean nothing whatsoever.

Bring it on.

=============

None.

It's just going to push more people into tribes based on their race meaning that more white people will advocate for explicitly racist policies to favor their own group, just like almost any other ethnic group in the world.

So, in other words, no bad things will happen because of this obsession with race, especially for minorities in the West. None, whatsoever.

37 It's racist to assume people who are white are not racist because they are white, of course they are racist. To take people as individuals and make judgments on each person's behavior separately is in fact...

40 My favorite in the graph has got to be "Not believing experience of POC".

I don't like not being white, but I have no ire against those that were born with the privilege of being white. I also hope that people born with congenital defects don't hate me merely because I lack them. All of this crap about "white privilege" smacks of envy and sour grapes. Accept who you are and don't blame those who you would like to be.

70 Abstract:

Through the lens of an experiential seminar, this article considers the role unconscious white supremacy plays within counselling and psychotherapy. Offering a plea for counselling organisations to consider whiteness studies as an integral aspect of their trainings, this article sees decolonization as a route towards this, and towards a greater engagement with the other both as trainees and as potential clients.



Hmmm. What's the end game here? Is it to say: don't put your white colonial expectations of what sanity looks like on me?"

Are honky and cracker and round eye slurs?


If all people are equal, then how can only why peopo be racist?


Phrenology makes a comeback.


To be sure, when you look into the pyramid there is a section that says if you even ask the question, then you are double racist.

21 Here is the final passage from the conclusions section of the IG report...



"There are many lessons to be learned from the Department's and FBI's handling of the Midyear investigation, but among the most important is the need for Department and FBI leadership to follow its established procedures and policies even in its highest-profile and most challenging investigations.

By adhering to these principles and norms, the public will have greater confidence in the outcome of the Department's and the FBI's decisions, and Department and FBI leaders will better protect the interests of federal law enforcement and the dedicated professionals who serve these institutions."

89 It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place,which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice.

Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government.

Ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess?

Ye have no more religion than my horse. Gold is your God. Which of you have not bartered your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defiled this sacred place, and turned the Lord's temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices?

Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation. You were deputed here by the people to get grievances redressed, are yourselves become the greatest grievance.

Your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse this Augean stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings in this House; and which by God's help, and the strength he has given me, I am now come to do.

I command ye therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place.

Go, get you out! Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

In the name of God, go!

106 Basically the only question to ask Wray is based on the IG report, disregarding the ludicrous conclusion and recommendation section that was obviously written by a collection of self interested Deep Staters, will he reopen the Hillary Clinton investigation, and if not why not?


Other lines of questioning is are the criminal acts detailed in the report going to prosecuted or are the perpetrators going to be allowed to skate?

Comey's running for President. He's an idiot and it'll be hilarious, but he's running.

Although if he does it right, it could be a great scheme to make money. There's a theory that many (if not most) candidates don't seriously expect to win, they're trying to raise their profile, sell books, grift, sometimes lay groundwork for a future run. (And I'm talking major, serious candidates, not, like, Vermin Supreme and The Rent's Too Damn High Guy or Egg McMuffin.)

That's basically my theory on Obama, actually-- he didn't expect to win, wasn't really that interested in winning, but hey.

Here is the final passage from the conclusions section of the IG report...







"There are many lessons to be learned from the Department's and
FBI's handling of the Midyear investigation, but among the most
important is the need for Department and FBI leadership to follow its
established procedures and policies even in its highest-profile and most
challenging investigations.



By adhering to these principles and norms, the public will have
greater confidence in the outcome of the Department's and the FBI's
decisions, and Department and FBI leaders will better protect the
interests of federal law enforcement and the dedicated professionals who
serve these institutions."

Witless headline based on last finding in report:
IG reports the DOJ and FBI violated established procedures and policies in the highest profile case ever; calls into question the validity of their finding of the Midyear review of "Secretary" Clinton's illegal homebrew server. Midyear review itself is a violation of policy in that it was actually a criminal investigation not a a write up for Variety Magazine..

I think the report said their activities, though weren't biased gave the impression that there could have been bias, if you had the brain capacity of an Ohio Retard, but even then the appearance of bias had no effect on the results of the Clinton Afternoon Teaparty Review (Cue old timey 20's music cavalcade.) cause they were able to compartmentalize all appearances of bias.....mostly by texting each other how much they hate Trumpand love the taste of Clinton ass.

Yes. Very well done.
Outside of rallying the usual troops from the MSM to Hollywood to Pope Franky, they've been especially effective at taking advantage of GOPe dupes and traitors.

The whole point of this obviously contrived hysteria, IMO,
is to get the GOP Congress to pass a rotten DACA bill.
This will surely depress the turnout for GOP reps in November.

It's an excellent ploy, much better than the usual Trayvon stuff they pull in election years. (That stuff hasn't worked very well lately.)

253 Predicted excerpt from Horowitz's FISA IG Report:

...

[Agent 3]: "[Carter] Page don't got no rights--if we say he doesn't! Fuck him!"

...

Overall, we find no solid proof that the FBI showed complete lack of concern for Mr. Page's right to privacy.

...

Although the investigators made questionable statements we do not know whether it affected the legitimacy of the FISA warrant. It's probably not generally advisable to pursue a warrant on the basis that the agents in this case did, but the we cannot state that the agent was totally out of the sphere of his discretion.

...

61 DACA "Children": A Modest Proposal

Said Children are rounded up and then flown to Cancun, Cozumel, and other southernmost Mexican airports. "Parents" have the option of flight with "Children", or are given directions where to pick them up.

Our US Airlines get subsidy boost, illegals get the airplane ride of a lifetime, but then in order to do it again they have to make a long trek back up 2,000 miles of Mexico.

"There are many lessons to be learned from the Department's and FBI's handling of the Midyear investigation, but among the most important is the need for Department and FBI leadership to follow its established procedures and policies even in its highest-profile and most challenging investigations.

By adhering to these principles and norms, the public will have greater confidence in the outcome of the Department's and the FBI's decisions, and Department and FBI leaders will better protect the interests of federal law enforcement and the dedicated professionals who serve these institutions."

I'm not too impressed with the article that is being quoted.

The not talking to each other is an implication that the two officers were having friendship issues.

In actuality, what is meant by the remark is that the OOD and the CIC Watch officer, who normally talk to each other via the 21MC (Bitch Box) to exchange radar and sensor generated information, and the analysis of such, did not in fact communicate with each other.

And Laura Bush really is despicable for being so lazy and arrogant that she would add her public figure voice to the vile lynch mob hysteria - and especially for apparently not understanding or caring that massive child abuse and suffering have been going on for years *precisely as a direct result* of an insecure border and the unbelievable literal advertising for dangerous illegal minor migration by the last administration (noted by garrett earlier).


There are estimates done by various humanitarian organizations that up to 80% of females involved in the very deliberate, 100% controllable flow of migrants thru Mexico have been victims of rape or violence. The trains on which the minors rode (on top) during the mass bum-rush stoked and welcomed by the Obama gang were called "death trains" due to the deaths and injuries from falling off, and attacks by bandits/cartels.


Mexico is guilty of serious international humanitarian crimes under existing human trafficking and other agreements - I am stunned that the Trump crew has not vociferously shamed Mexico City about this truly heart-breaking - and outrageous - situation.

104 Woo-hoo!

Jut got back from a Father's Day family get-together.

Where I encountered some "good news" of a sort -- not about my family, but about the political zeitgeist of the nation.

Background info: Everyone in my family is a moonbat -- leftoid idiots who parrot every Democratic talking point and fall in line with every liberal meme. And not just some of my family is this way -- every stinkin' single one of them, to varying degrees.

The most extreme of the bunch is one of my half-sisters, whom I'll call, uh, "Jane." She eagerly regurgitates Rachel Maddow and Stephen Colbert like that makes her some kind of well-informed genius. Gag.

But this evening, we're all sitting around with our dad, and Jane says glumly to the whole family, "We're never going to get rid of Trump, are we?"

Everyone moaned and shook their heads: "Yeah, looks like were stuck with him now. Shit. Well, at least we tried."

Then one of my brothers-n-law -- probably the least goose-stepping of the group -- tried to cheer everyone up by saying, "Hey but at least we'll finally bring an end to the Korean War! That's good -- right?"

But everyone moaned in further pain, since Trump's success was the worst news possible.

Then, uncharacteristically, they all changed the subject and starting talking about sports and medical problems. The very fact that they stopped talking politics meant that they were too depressed to even stay on the topic.

If my family is any indication o the typical liberal mindset, looks like the Left is demoralized and feels defeated. Which is the best news I've ever gotten at a Father's Day event.

106 In actuality, what is meant by the remark is that the OOD and the CIC Watch officer, who normally talk to each other via the 21MC (Bitch Box) to exchange radar and sensor generated information, and the analysis of such, did not in fact communicate with each other.

Yeah, I think RSMcCain read too much into the various bits that've come out on this.

The individual he's hammering as I understand it was second banana in the CIC. The top banana is a saint according to some subordinates, a sinner to others. The sensor issues were long-standing according to some. Switchology problems maybe, maybe not under control f CIC. Lack of readiness/maintenance stand-down agreed by all.

But, I don't like cold coffee.
Posted by: garrett


No no no, you don't DRINK it cold -- you simply brew it cold. You can then later heat it up to your preference.

Cold brew is very very simple. Simpler than regular-brewing, actually.

Basically, just soak the ground in cold water overnight (12 hours is the recommended time). Then pour off the water --> that's your coffee.

It comes out very very concentrated - -about 3x the strength of regular coffee, essentially like coffee concentrate. But it's super-duper "smooth" - -the absence of heat means that not of the acrid bitterness gets leached out of the beans. So you get extra flavor but less harshness.

Store the concentrate in a bottle in the fridge. Then, as needed, pour it out in whatever proportion you want, and hat it up either on the stove or in the microwave.

The only hart part is the system for draining off the liquid. Best to buy one of the "Toddy" systems, which is basically just a big contained with a hole at the bottom, and you put a filter in there, and the uncork it after 12 hours. Works a teat.

Yes. Very well done.
Outside of rallying the usual troops from the MSM to Hollywood to Pope Franky, they've been especially effective at taking advantage of GOPe dupes and traitors.

The whole point of this obviously contrived hysteria, IMO,
is to get the GOP Congress to pass a rotten DACA bill.
This will surely depress the turnout for GOP reps in November.

It's an excellent ploy, much better than the usual Trayvon stuff they pull in election years. (That stuff hasn't worked very well lately.)

You want good tasting coffee for the whole pot then when it's done brewing, have that first cup then remove it from the heat.
Subsequent cups simply nuke--coffee won't get bitter from nuking due to the brevity of the reheat.

The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
"Did you know that babbling clown Paul Ehrlich is still running his fool mouth? You'd think he's learned his lesson by now, but no, even though virtually everything he wrote back in 1968 in his hysterical, omg-my-hair-is-on-fire book 'The Population Bomb' has turned out to be wrong, that hasn't stopped him. He says, get this, 'many details and timings of events were wrong...but...the book was correct overall.' In other words it was fake, but accurate. He's like one of those TV preachers who predict that the world is ending Real Soon Now so send in your money. Also, if he honestly believes that the world is overcrowded, then what is he still doing here? It's like he's saying 'this lifeboat is way to crowded, so everybody needs to get off, but not me.' Considering that European and American birth-rates have been mostly flat for decades, what he's really saying is that there are too many brown people in the world, and there needs to be fewer of them. Somebody is going to eventually notice that all of this is kind of, you know, racist, and that's when we'll start seeing some wild and crazy blue-on-blue action."

Progressivism In a Nutshell:


This reminds me of this piece, A Michigan Marxist Restaurant Closes After Failed Group Decisions and Long Sandwich Waits:

The restaurant’s (now-defunct) Facebook page was flooded with complaints from patrons angry at its slow service. Patrons hungry for a sandwich would find the café shuttered at odd times, thanks to opening hours set by employee group decision.

Sounds like a miniature version of Venezuela. The article states that the waiting time for a sandwich could be as long as 40 minutes(!).

So somebody please tell me, why should we trust rat bastard commies to govern a country? They're not competent enough run a sandwich shop.

Also Academics: I'm not going to propagate my racist genes.

Wouldn't that be an extreme form of self-hatred? Couldn't racism be argued to be an *encoding* of gene protection? If the only point is for genes to survive to the next generation, why no tolerance for racism as a survival mechanism?

Why insist on idealism that is has no genetic/survival component?

27 Oy, that tweet continues with the stupid:

Also take a look at this. Alabama has 6.3 restaurants per capita or 10k residents. There are 4.875 million residents in the state. If I did my math correctly, there are a little over 3,000 fast food restaurants in the entire state. That's a lot.

[someone mentions all the jobs they create]

I worked at McDonalds in high school. The only thing it did was give me high blood pressure and sleep deprivation. There are many many other entry level jobs that teens can work at. The economy isn't going to collapse if we reduce the amount of fast food chains or make it

Mandatory for said fast food joints to have a substantial amount of vegan options
on the menu. That way everyone keeps their jobs, corporations still profit and vegans don't have to eat salad when they go out with friends to these places. Everyone wins.

Hayek, in "The Fatal Conceit" addresses this quite well, in a way that was something of an "aha" moment for me.

He says the notion of socialism is perfectly reasonable, when applied to homogeneous groupings, where everyone has a shared SOCIAL connection, whether it be families, clans, small villages, and other such groupings.

It's when you try to apply those principles to larger groups, like, say, nations, that the concept breaks down. People can't be MADE to care about strangers, that's pretty much the point. We can cooperate, work together, have shared interests, but unless you have a social/emotional connection with people, socialism WILL NOT work.

Saw that earlier. I'm a little miffed that I didn't think of that. I can usually think in the conditional, and just was stymied by Comey's claim that he didn't know.

Good for Margot. We need more analysis of claims. Lies are usually reflex covers to obscure the truth, they don't have the consistency that a true situation does. Thus, Comey not only admits to not knowing something obvious, but quite high incompetence in the face of the claimed ignorance.

Just like Hillary's claim that she didn't know the "(c)" meant confidential is no support for the claim that she is the most qualified candidate ever.

I think this is a good partial explanation why socialism was seen as such a success in the Scandinavian countries. Small, highly homogeneous populations will have a greater receptivity to the "sharing" idea than heterogeneous ones. Also, it didn't hurt that Scandi socialism was subsidized by one-time only oil and gas revenues AND the U.S. picking up the tab on their national defense.

102 He says the notion of socialism is perfectly reasonable, when applied to homogeneous groupings, where everyone has a shared SOCIAL connection, whether it be families, clans, small villages, and other such groupings.
It's when you try to apply those principles to larger groups, like, say, nations, that the concept breaks down. People can't be MADE to care about strangers, that's pretty much the point. We can cooperate, work together, have shared interests, but unless you have a social/emotional connection with people, socialism WILL NOT work.

I've long thought that socialism needs 3 conditions to hold in order to work:

1. a population that is relatively small
2. a population that does *not* have a lot of cultural diversity
3. some sort of natural resource the state can exploit.

Iceland is a good example. Population < 500,000; everybody speaks the same language, and the island is sitting on top of a shit ton of geothermal energy. So if everyone works hard and agrees to a high tax rate, boom, workable socialism.

Same with Norway and Denmark with their North Sea oil reserves.

106 From JJ's link this morning https://spectator.org/ (close the space) a-gig-destroying-neighborhoods/ ...one would surmise the article is about destroying a neighborhood but it's actually about entrepreneurship vs the state and CoC regulators.

There's a simple answer to all these problems: Force Airbnb to obey the same laws that hotels and motels do. Make it pay the same tax rates, comply with the same safety standards, and be subject to the same reviews. Innovation of course is a very good thing, and Airbnb, as originally conceived, is just that and I'm all for it. But a hotel is a hotel, like it or not, and laws are laws.

Airbnb participants have become entrepreneurs finding ways to monetize ownership and avoid paying onerous state, county, and city regulation and taxes.

107 Of course Zeon had a plan for overpopulation of the Earth, it was called Operation British. Dropped a whole colony on Sydney Australia, turned the place into a giant bay with the equivalent of 60,000 megatons of explosives. After the One Year War, half of Humanity was dead.

In UC 0083 Operation Stardust the Delaz Fleet dropped another colony on the North American grain region.

By UC 0093 they were going for the whole enchilada. Sha Anzable, leader of Neo-Zeon, first drops Luna 5 on Tibet in an attempt to destroy the Federation government and start a nuclear winter. Only with extreme heroism and sacrifice was the Axis asteroid prevented from dropping on Earth wiping out all of Humanity on the planet.

116 The mindlessness of Evolution is one of the ways that leftists try to remove traditional meaning and mores from the public sphere.

Since all traditional idea of meaning are meaningless in the face of the meaninglessness of the blunt instrument of death before propagation as the sum of all that's going on, we can only get meaning through each person deciding for themselves what is meaningful. And thus, the traditional corporate meanings are exclusive of these new personal meanings--like the amount of orgasms and sexual identity--so they must be taken down.

There might be some credence in that, except the Marxists have long sought to take value-based societies down by weakening their attachment to group morality as well. And Marxist want to impose very-flawed theories of relationships by State power.

Also, what it ends up to mean is that nobody who wants anything more than a personal, indulgent, idiosyncratic meaning should be allowed to pursue that meaning which is greater than the individual sphere.

120 And as a followup to the creature know as ITG and other profoundly silly people.


Huber is allegedly working with Horowitz, Horowitz just released a report with no criminal referrals and the bulk of recommendations were for better training.

Here is a typical recommendation from the report...

"6. The FBI [should] add a warning to all of the FBI's mobile phones and in order to further nofitfy users that they have no reasonable expectation of privacy."

7. The FBI consider (a) assessing whether it has provided adequate training to employees about the proper use of text messages and instant messages, including any related discovery obligations, and (b) providing additional guidance about the allowable uses of FBI devices for any non-governmental purpose, including guidance about the use of FBI devices for political conversations

9. Department ethics officials consider implementing a review of campaign donations when Department employees or their spouses run for public office.


In other words, hide your biases better dummies.


So unless there exists a secret report that has criminal referrals, nobody is being charged with crimes based on the IG investigation, conclusion or reccommendations

Hitler was pretty close to a vegan. Also, he had such extreme stomach problems for most of his adult life. He found a doctor who was renown for curing stomach ailments. He commissioned that doctor, and that doctor injected fermented/rotting bacon grease into Hitler's intestinal tract for the rest of their mutual lives. Hitler was such a doctrinaire vegetarian that the doctor feared that the Fuhrer would find out the secret of the treatment. But Hitler raved about how much better he felt under the care of the doctor.

Vegans/Vegetarians will try to sell you on the idea that we were "meant" to be plant eaters. Yet, that doesn't understand Evolution. If we changed by eating meat and that played a role in our adaptive process, it could be some of us are optimized for meat-eating and the body is less fit for a strictly plant diet.

Again the feedback for the Evolutionary process called Natural Selection is the blunt instrument of Death--then again, there is making members outcasts and untouchables that will reduce their mating chances, as well.

Started in 1997 with the Flores Consent Decree, which encourages illegals to bring their kids because said kids can't be held longer than 20 days - while asylum determinations takes longer (so they slip into the country after mandatory release).

W. didn't fix that. Obama further exploited it with DACA, which was an open invitation so send unaccompanied minors.

Pretty sure the only thing Laura Bush is upset about is that Trump is now using this to force border wall funding (his latest proposal ties it to DACA green cards; if funding is deferred, then no green cards). IOW, he's found a way to use these kids in the same way Lefties have been for two decades.

I've long thought that socialism needs 3 conditions to hold in order to work:

1. a population that is relatively small
2. a population that does *not* have a lot of cultural diversity
3. some sort of natural resource the state can exploit.

Iceland is a good example. Population

Joshua Murchevik wrote a book (Heaven on Earth) on the rise and fall of Marxism and an analysis as to why it failed. He ends with the Kibbutzim and pointng out, yeah, it was successful but they ultimately died out as socialist cooperatives because the kids didn't see the point in continuing them when they could live a much better life outside of them. And so, they were privatized into resorts or tourist traps. The lesson? Socialism, even if it's sucessful, will ultimately hit a wall when it has to compete with a capitalist world.

He commissioned that doctor, and that doctor injected fermented/rotting bacon grease into Hitler's intestinal tract for the rest of their mutual lives. Hitler was such a doctrinaire vegetarian that the doctor feared that the Fuhrer would find out the secret of the treatment. But Hitler raved about how much better he felt under the care of the doctor.

What kills socialism (and all lefty ideas) is dynamism - any sort of growth or advancement. Socialism, and general leftiness, is based on stagnation. If a society adopts leftiness then stagnation is forced on that society (as we saw with Barky and how our economy, and pretty much everything, came to a near standstill under his retarded policies).

Any sort of growth - population, territory, etc. - and any sort of advancement breaks the brittle lefty policies that are all set in stone with committees formed to decide how things will be done and what will be researched and worked on.

Yes, if there is an available pool of free money then lefty policies can live on for longer periods of time, just by sheer force of wealth, but they will still break, eventually, under the force of any sort of dynamism.

229 Vegans/Vegetarians will try to sell you on the idea that we were "meant" to be plant eaters. Yet, that doesn't understand Evolution. If we changed by eating meat and that played a role in our adaptive process, it could be some of us are optimized for meat-eating and the body is less fit for a strictly plant diet.

Again the feedback for the Evolutionary process called Natural Selection is the blunt instrument of Death--then again, there is making members outcasts and untouchables that will reduce their mating chances, as well.

I listen to Stone Cold Steve Austin's podcast, and a few months back one of his guests was a guy that does ultra-marathons and is a vegan/vegetarian. Part of his claim was that look at gorillas, one of the strongest animals out there and they just eat plants, and your body has to break down the food and create proteins anyway so why eat meat and have to break that protein down to just form new protein.

And then the other week he's got a different guy on who is doing the Carnivore Diet. Basically arguing the exact opposite. You have the animals to break down the plant matter initially and then you can eat those animals and it will be better for you.

I think it's just that if you do a diet right, whatever it is you can make it work for you if it's compatible with your physiology.

A heat pump is a combined A/C and heater so you don't need a second A/C unit. If the temps rarely get below 32F a heat pump will work out fine. The reason you don't see heat pumps up north is because the winters are much harsher.

251 Schlichter's Townhall column on the IG report is decent. Nice summation - it's simultaneously a terrifying indictment of the situation, and a whitewash.


Many retreat into what is really a silly pretzel twisting exercise about who an IG works for, the various contortions that result by trying to please different masters, blah blah blah.


Nonsense. There's no point in paying IG employees to do what they do unless their efforts result in 1) a solid factual record, AND 2) reasonable conclusions and observations based on that record.


No. 2 is outrageously missing here. I've not yet read the entire report, but so far, I think in 3 separate places, read that the FBI investigation confirmed that classified material was improperly (i.e., ILLEGALLY) handled, AND was probably compromised by foreign intelligence.


And yet - NO indictments, NO plea deals, NO prosecutions. I have not seen that the IG report, at any point, offers even the obvious and mundane observation that something is seriously wrong because crimes were confirmed, and yet magically not a single indictment was pursued. THIS is the bottom line.

Historically one of the big differences between the nobility and the peasantry was that the former had easy access to meat while the latter was restricted.

It made it easier for the nobles to maintain their rule as strength is very important in war in the era before gunpowder.

Of course gunpowder ruined things for the nobles. Now some son of a merchant or a filthy potato farmer could kill them at 50 yards even in their shining armor.

The main idea is that there IS no teleology to Evolution. Species are adapting all the time, and that forces changes. Even *if* it can be proven that we started out eating berries (per one thing I recently read), there is no teleology to talk about anything being "meant". Adaptation is adaptation.

We were "meant" to be berry-eaters. Then we adapted to eating grains (which our stomachs *still* have a problem breaking down--and expends *much* effort on the part of the digestive tract to do so), since then, we've eaten a lot of grains. A major religion asks "Give us this day our daily bread" as metonymy for food.

That we were formerly berry-eaters doesn't hold that we haven't changed to be more adaptive to grains and that some of our berry adaption has been selected out.

We were originally X.

Yes, but then we changed.

The most insisted upon definition for Evolution is *simply* Descent with Modification. Thus modifying diets and adaptability to diets is *right* in the most-preferred definition of Evolution.

Schlichter's Townhall column on the IG report is decent. Nice summation
- it's simultaneously a terrifying indictment of the situation, and a
whitewash.





Many retreat into what is really a silly pretzel twisting exercise
about who an IG works for, the various contortions that result by trying
to please different masters, blah blah blah.





Nonsense. There's no point in paying IG employees to do what they
do unless their efforts result in 1) a solid factual record, AND 2)
reasonable conclusions and observations based on that record.





No. 2 is outrageously missing here. I've not yet read the entire
report, but so far, I think in 3 separate places, read that the FBI
investigation confirmed that classified material was improperly (i.e.,
ILLEGALLY) handled, AND was probably compromised by foreign
intelligence.





And yet - NO indictments, NO plea deals, NO prosecutions. I have
not seen that the IG report, at any point, offers even the obvious and
mundane observation that something is seriously wrong because crimes
were confirmed, and yet magically not a single indictment was pursued.
THIS is the bottom line.

there is so much red meat in this one report alone that if CNN or MSNBC were inclined ot be fair about it, they could tear the democratic party apart with Town halls and Special reports in the same why they did the Stormy Daniels thing.
But , nope it's all under the rug.
It's really ugly, sad, disheartening when the media takes sides in such a monumental affair.

297 I'd like to thank Warden for making me laugh and cry at work now. You sumbitch.

I dare not read the comments on that thread. I won't make it.

I lost my dad nine months ago. My wife and I both lost our dads last year.

Major holidays and milestones still kinda suck. This was my first Father's Day without my dad, and (barely) our second without my Father-in-Law.

My kids made it special. My wife did too. But our hearts still ache.

My dad was a stubborn jokester not too unlike Warden's story. As cancer was having it's way with him, and he was in and out of the ER, it was always mom that would do us the service of telling us he was there, much to his chagrin. We live 90 minutes away, and he knew that a carload of Reasons would drop everything and hit the road, or at bare minimum, just me.

Jokes and razzing each other were our language. We seldom did "deep talks." But the deep talks were there, hidden in plain sight by jokes and ribbings.

His all-time favorite movie was 2001. Not for the cinematic artistry. Not for the faithful recreation of a seminal science-fiction novel.

No.

He loved it because his name was Dave.

For Father's Day one year in the 90's, I looked up how to alter the loading screen for Windows95. I changed it to a screenshot of the HAL9000 "eye" and a .wav of "I know what you're trying to do, Dave, and I'm afraid I can't allow it." The shutdown screen was the same, but with a .wav of HAL slowly singing "Daisy." That was it. No other Father's Day present before or after could compare.

I've probably been willow'd by now, as this has taken me forever to write. Probably for the best.

Scott Adams did a periscope on this and nails this kind of opinion: "And?"

It's incomplete. No one wants parents separated from children. You have add what you think is a better solution. Do you want the kids in detention with parents? Do you really want them all to be free --- in the US, or back in home country? Admit it and stop with the cheap grace of declaring it breaks your heart, period.
______________________________

I'm with him.

If you think this situation is "heart breaking," then let's hear your solution.

Thanks to Obama's lawless policies, our southern border has been under continuous assault from illegal aliens seeking to become welfare colonists in the U.S. Also thanks to Obama, many of these illegal aliens have been bringing kids along with them, some of them their own, some not. But all of these kids, without exception, are being used and exploited by foreigners seeking to either outright violate, or otherwise take advantage of U.S. laws.

So what should we do with these foreign kids? Just wave them into the U.S. with whatever adults they show up with, and continue Obama's "don't ask" policy and just assume that the adults are not cartel members or human traffickers or people in the kiddie sex trade?

Or should we separate them until we can determine who their parents are, and whether or not they have the right to be in the U.S.?

And keep in mind when you're making your decision that there are already tens of millions of foreigners living in the U.S. illegally, and any policy change which makes it easier for them to come or stay will guarantee a deluge of millions more.

So decide how many more illegal aliens we can afford to welcome here. And keep in mind that over 50% of current immigrants to the U.S., of both the legal and illegal variety, are receiving at least one form of federal welfare, and many are receiving multiple forms, and for many years.

So how many more illegal aliens, especially those from third-world countries who tend to be poor, uneducated, unskilled, and have limited or no English skills, can we take in? We're already $20 trillion in debt, we have hundreds of trillions more in unfunded liabilities like Social Security and Medicaid and Medicare, and half of the U.S. citizen families have less than $400 in savings. How much should those American families have to pay to support the lifestyles of other countries' poor who want to come here? Do American citizens have any right at all to have a voice in these decisions? Or should all of our immigration policies be based on little more than far-left, virtue-signalling talking points like "don't rip children from their mamas' arms!!!"

If you're expressing an opinion and you're not willing to address these questions with some practical, fair, workable solutions -- and show your work, then you really should just STFU.

324 1. a population that is relatively small
2. a population that does *not* have a lot of cultural diversity
3. some sort of natural resource the state can exploit.z'

It's important to realize that ANY form of government you can devise will work under those conditions - those are the absolute easiest conditions in which a state can exist. The question is which form of government is most optimal. It's useful to realize that socialism ONLY works in the easiest of conditions.

When there is a mono-culture, ie Switzerland, Iceland, Vermont, Oregon, etc, it is easy to get agreement when yu don't have to deal with complicated group dynamics - when you have a "diverse" society, every group is always sure that every other group is trying to get an advantage.

and as far as a large natural resource, such as Noway has - sure, you could let the government own it, but wouldn't it be better to let it be developed privately, and let the government collect and distribute the income through royalty payments and excise taxes, etc? The revenue can be managed to be the same, and the government doesn't have the expense or the bother of having to figure out how to be an oil company.

There's a reason that great resource wealth has turned out to be a curse on almost every 3rd world country that has it. Take Libya and Venezuela as the two top examples.

Did Stone Cold give him a Stunner and stand over him chugging a beer saying "the Stone Cold diet is beer, red meat, more beer, barbecue sauce, still more beer, pork slow cooked, even more beer and poultry.

I keep hearing that argument about how we treat criminals' kids.

The reason these people are in the camps is that they are asylum seekers. If they were uncaught, they wouldn't be in the camps, and they would be illegals.

Now, the asylum claims may be bullshit, but we have a law and a procedure for adjudicating that and while they are in detention they are not yet criminals.

Also, while a mother is in jail in Seattle (this is happening) we are paying someone else to take care of her kid imprisoned elsewhere.

Now, the asylum claims may be bullshit, but we have a law and a procedure for adjudicating that and while they are in detention they are not yet criminals.

Gorilla is WRONG about Ehrlich. Wants to whack down the brown population? No, he has been very explicit that it is only WHITES that he wants to get rid of.

He measures harmful impact by per capita GNP. Impoverished people are fine. To Ehrlich they are like animals on the Savannah. Part of nature. Only prosperous people are unnatural.

Not quite. He might be getting on the trendy Whitey Hate Whitey train now, but back in the '70s he was most definitely on the OMG Brown People Breed Like Rabbits track.

I suspect that it's been edited in the later editions, but in the first ed. of The Population Bomb, he talks about how he first came to the conclusion that the human population was a problem while traveling in India, walking the streets of Bombay with a "sea of brown faces". I had to read parts of that book in a college course a long time back, and the anti-brown people racist basis for his theories was obvious (a lot of folks in the class didn't like it AT ALL when this was pointed out).

We do. And rule No. 1 is go to and embassy or an official crossing point and seek asylum. If you do not follow rule No. 1 and instead sneak into the US you violate the asylum policy and give up any and all rights to be treated as an asylum seeker and are instead treated as what you are, an illegal alien.

Per government stats, less than 20% of people who seek asylum status in the US are granted it despite the US being the most generous asylum granting nation in the world. By far. Obviously, the vast majority of people sneaking into the country and then claiming asylum status are lying and trying to game the system.

Also, don't piss down my leg and telling me it's raining. The Obama administration was taking out actual ads in Latin American countries telling people how to game the system during his 8 years. I'm pretty sick of this silly game where I am supposed to feel bad because people are lying and breaking my laws.

469 To the left, abortion is an acceptable logistical solution. If the mother doesn't have enough time, money, or the most important resource interest in being a parent, the idea is that we end whatever potential for life there was in the potential being.

Planned parenthood talks about how much preferred it is to have a planned influx of children.

However, you can't make the border a logistical solution. And they don't like the concept of Planned Immigration. Even though you're not ending anybody's potential for life, in the process.

What's funny is the "asylum seekers". Their ethnic homeland is so messed up, that apparently they would die if they stayed there. So, in America, they're not dying, their kids aren't dying, so they're removed that emergency situation, and the primary goal has been achieved.

Oh--and "banana republic" is RACIST.

Negative. These are the ones who get caught coming in at points other than ports of entry. The asylum seekers are the ones that present themselves lawfully at the ports of entry.

These are the illegals. They are human smugglers, and are sometimes carrying drugs for the cartels as part of their entry fee. Just because they claim the chidren with them are their kids doesn't make it so. And oftentimes the 'kid' is the coyote.

LOL. YES. The left wants to eliminate differences. Any difference offends their aesthetic sense of what humanity should be like. That would be one way to go about it.

But the problem is that the left wants to be an elite, lords surrounded by humble serfs that smile, nod, and give proper deference to the lords, never questioning let alone mocking them. That's why the left opts for uniformity by importing third worlders.

My wife and I are approaching the outskirts of my hometown when she receives the text. My 79 year old father, who we're supposed to meet with his girlfriend at the county fair in a half an hour, has been admitted to the ER with chest pains.

Both of my boys, ages 11 and 6, are in the backseat, bored from the hour and a half drive, but eager to watch the demolition derby that is the final destination of an all day fall road trip.

I curse under my breath, then promptly miss my exit and begin raging at the cars around me as I look for an alternative route to the hospital. Anger is almost always my reaction when I'm scared or upset.

My wife tries to soothe me. I calm down for the sake of my boys, but I can't get the worst case scenario out of my mind. My dad had undergone a quadruple bypass just a few years prior, and he just hasn't been the same man since.

By the time we arrive at the hospital, my dad's girlfriend has texted again. They've moved him to observation and she is with him. I relax upon hearing the news.

We check in at the front desk. A curmudgeonly old hospital worker shows us how to find his room.

"Just follow the brown acorns. All the different sections are some sort of nature theme I guess," he says with casual disdain.

"Damned hippies!" I snarl dramatically.

He either doesn't get it or finds it unworthy of even a polite chuckle. I wink at my older son. Mocking hippies is a running gag between us. One of his favorite stories is how I once punched one in the face.

We turn a corner and I catch a glimpse of my dad through a room curtain. As soon as I see him, I know everything is okay. He's talking animatedly with someone hidden from view. When he sees me, he smiles.

"How are you?"

He informs me that he's fine. The EKG was normal and he'd taken an enzyme test that had turned up negative, which is means that he hadn't had a heart attack.

"Okay, first things first," I say. "Does Mom and, oh I don't know, YOUR OTHER SON WHO LIVES 5 MINUTES AWAY know you're here?"

Dad's girlfriend informs us that she called the two-day of them a few minutes ago. It's 6:15 pm. My dad checked in 3 hours ago and had only recently gotten around to telling anyone.

Honestly, I'm surprised that he'd done even that. The last time he'd been in the ER, he hadn't told anyone until the day after he'd been released.

I look down. "I see you thought to bring a book, though."

Dad usually has a paperback somewhere either on his person or in his car. Always bring a book so you'll never be bored, he once told me.

Dad nods proudly. "I grabbed it on the way out."

"You drove?"

"Yeah."

"Jesus. Really?"

The nurse starts going through Dad's medical history with him. "I see you have numbness in your left hand?" she asks.

Dad acknowledges that he'd had surgery, but it hadn't corrected the problem. Then he makes sure to point out that he can still do 5 chin-ups.

"Wow," says the nurse politely.

Dad tells her that he could do twelve up until a few years ago, which I can personally verify given that he once did them on a Disney bus during a family vacation in order to show up some punk kids near us who were having a chin up contest using the grab bar.

I see my older son giggling. I poke him in the stomach and give him an eye roll. "Chin ups!" he whispers.

Another inside joke. Every single time my dad visits our home, he has the same conversation with my son. It goes like this:

"You like playing football?"

"Uh uh."

"You gotta be strong for football. You work out? You do chins? You chin yourself?"

"I work out sometimes. I don't do chin ups."

"Chin ups are the BEST way to build strength. Tell your dad to get you a chin up bar so you can chin yourself, okay?"

"Okay, Papa."

I'm tempted to tell my kid to lie and say he has a chin up bar just to get my old man off his ass, but worry that my dishonesty will be exposed when Dad wants to challenge him to a chin up contest.

I look back at my dad as the nurse approaches the bed and tries to lift him to an upright seated position. He waves her off.

"Hold my feet," he commands gruffly.

She looks befuddled, but complies. What other choice does she have?

And then, I shit you not, my dad puts his hands behind his head, inhales dramatically, and does a sit up like he's in gym class, beaming proudly as he reaches the top.

Oh my God! mouths my embarrassed wife from the other side of the bed, her panicked eyes simultaneously looking everywhere and nowhere.

My wife adores my father, but has also told me that my most important job is to not turn into him when I get older. Now she looks like she can't decide whether to hide or run.

"I do crunches every morning," Dad informs the nurse. Now it's my eyes that are on the move, sliding stealthily over to his bemused girlfriend.

Later, I would tell this story on Twitter and receive a great many comments about what a slick ladies man my dad is.

But he's not. He might be the most clueless man I've ever met when it comes to dealing with women. He doesn't even know how to flirt.

His actual intention is making sure everyone in the room knows that he's not some goddamned candy ass, as he would put it. This is important to him. I get it. I'm not much different. I just do my signalling in less obvious ways.

I shake my head slightly and smile in solidarity with his girlfriend. I feel like I'm in a Seinfeld episode. Every year my dad becomes a more distilled version of his essential self and this is entire sequence of events is him to a T: recklessly independent, obliviously earnest, tough, proud and stubborn.

His not a candy ass bona fides now established, Dad decides that this would be a good time for a lesson on Latin roots. He turns to my 6 year old. "Do you know what spect means. The root, spect?"

My younger one is whip smart. He can do two digit subtraction in his head and reads at a 2nd grade level, despite only having started kindergarten two months ago. He does not, however, know what the hell a Latin root is. Age appropriateness is not something my father has mastered. This would explain his decision to take me to see the movie, Animal House, when I was 7 years old along with many other odd events from my childhood.

My son shakes his head at the question. I can tell that he's happy to receive his grandpa's attention, but is already sensing that this is veering off into a decidedly not fun place.

"Spect means to see," the lecture continues. "Now, can you think of any words that have 'spect' in them?"

Another head shake. We'd promised him a demolition derby. This was not a demolition derby.

"IN-spect means to look within. SPECT-acle means a big sight. RE-spect means to look back. PRO-spect means to look forward."

"Okay," chirps my younger one, his feigned interest bolstered by the hopeful realization that the lesson might be over.

My dad is obsessed with Latin roots and thinks we should teach vocabulary to kids by making them learn them. He's such a true believer that he decided he was going to make my brother and I spend an hour a night learning them when we were in junior high.

We, of course, rebelled and the experiment ended after two weeks with my dad calling us assholes and storming out of the room.

There were hopes of a textbook and maybe even an educational board game that would teach eager, young home-schooled children the miracle of a Latin root based vocabulary, but he put it off until retirement, then just got too old to do it.

Now he's at it with my kids.

Did I mention that my dad is stubborn?

He drives me nuts some time. More so these days, as he'll get fixated on one or two things and just beat them to death.

But here in this observation room at the ER, I start looking ahead to his inevitable passing. Every time he has a health scare it becomes more real to me.

I think maybe I should have a eulogy written ahead of time. It's not the first time I've considered this. I've started on it a dozen times in my head, but I always end up crying and never get around to putting it to a word document.

I have dozens of hilarious stories about my dad. There's an entire routine I used to run through about how I was traumatized at childhood due to his embarrassing exploits. I've had entire rooms crying and wheezing through laughter for a half hour straight. A crowd favorite is the story about the "pee jug" he made us kids use for 6 months because he really liked the win-win scenario of acquiring free fertilizer for his garden while also saving on the water bill.

I usually transition from that story to the one where he cut a deal with a circus that was passing through town to take some of their elephant shit off their hands. I still remember my mom hiding in the kitchen as a dump truck full of it got shoveled into our garden. She was, of course, mortified.

I look down. I love this man. He's been a rock for our family for his entire life. In his relentless dedication to our physical and financial safety, he'd thought of and planned for everything. We used to razz him about the "bomb shelter" in our basement--an area stocked with dry goods, water, gold and silver coins and other doomsday needs--but what he was really doing with all that was showing his love the best way that he knew how.

But the things I'll remember the most fondly when he's gone are his small quirks and imperfections--even, and maybe mostly, the ones that frequently frustrate and embarrass me.

We don't love perfectly and we don't love perfect people. But when you love someone, you love all of them. And as you grow older, you start to see that the things that are imperfect about people are not only what makes them uniquely them, but also what makes them uniquely good.

Because every trait we have is a coin with two sides. My dad's sometimes exasperating bluntness, for example, also means you always know where you stand with him. There is no guesswork to our relationship. I don't know a more honest man, and I've never in my life seen him behave any other way than exactly how he is. The trade-off is some inevitable social awkwardness, but at least we always have a good laugh about it.

Like most people, he's full of these Yin and Yang characteristic. His workaholic, Type A nature means no detail is ever overlooked, especially when having to do with important matters.

His excessive pragmatism is responsible for a red folder tucked into my file drawer that provides me with every single piece of information I might need upon his death--bank account numbers, who to contact and how, and where he's hidden cash and valuables from the tax man.

The old school chivalry that sometimes bleeds into a thoughtless chauvinism that irritates my wife was also at the heart of him treating my mom well and looking after her, even after they were divorced and even after she'd wronged him.

The flaws are all there, front and center. But the good by far outweighs the bad.

I pray regularly to have more patience both with my parents and my kids. It's one of my top prayers because I'm moody and often a grouch, and I feel guilty about it. I also know that this is just how I'm built and there's no cure, only a a gradual, conscientious amelioration of the worst effects of it.

My wife knows it, too, and when I'm being a crank, she'll sometimes kiss me on the nose, just like Lucy might do to Schroeder in a Peanuts comic strip. When she does this, she usually says something to the effect of, "It's a good thing that I find grumpiness to be cute."

It is, indeed.

Love your loved ones. All parts of them. This is what God made them to be.

In 2018, Massachusetts voters will decide the fate of The Fair Share Amendment, also known as the Millionaire's Tax. If passed, the Fair Share Amendment would amend the Massachusetts Constitution by changing its provision to tax all residents an equal share of their income. It would specifically tax 4% on income over one million dollars. The projected $2 billion per year in additional tax revenue would be designated for education and transportation, areas both very much in need of investment.

14 There was time during the service for people to share what they learned from their fathers or appreciated about them. One old guy said:He taught me all about cars and how to fix them and do electricity. He also taught me to do woodworking "He was a man without much education but a great deal of wisdom." I thought that was wonderful. Another fellow said "My father showed me the importance of humility." In a culture that completely de-emphasizes humility I said that i thought that was wonderful thing!

17 Last year I was volunteered to drive dad to a nephew's wedding. The ceremony was downtown, the reception in Over-The-Rhine, Cincinnati's half-gentrified ghetto.

And Dad's childhood neighborhood.

Never made it to the ceremony. Drove around OTR for two hours. The building I remember my grandparents living in is now owned by a gay "couple"; the neighborhood eatery that once served dog food as chili is now an up-scale trendy restaurant...

And the reception was held in a building one of Dad's cousins once owned.

19 Laura Bush doesn't like this administration's handling of border jumpers. Hey Laura, your husband is responsible for this situation, and his pathetic leadership on the issue of illegal immigration brought us to this point. !Jebbie the douche claimed that border jumping was somehow an "act of love."

It's my claim, that separating children from any adult trying to cross the border illegally is an act of love. We're taking the children away from abusive adults, which IMHO, is an act of love.

My dad is infinitely patient. One could tell how bad something was if dad got upset, because it was such a rare occurrence.

Naturally, dad was the one who taught us to drive. His method? Spend about 1 hour in an empty office parking lot (on the weekend) and then saying, "OK, let's go up Boulder Canyon now..." (spoiler alert: nothing like possibility of plummeting down the side of a mountain focuses the mind on driving well!) Heh.

33 I lost my father early, he was just 51 years old and I was 22 back in 1988. Because of that, I missed the most important years of his guidance and strength: when I was becoming a man. I learned so much from his quiet wisdom and courage, his tenacity, his gentle discernment and intelligence, but the years that I had so many questions, he wasn't there and I miss him so much.

Just keep that in mind, all you dads. Your job doesn't end when they leave the house. They need you even more, then, because they're just starting out and you understand what they need to know. They have to have someone to ask questions of and rely on.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at June 18, 2018 11:12 AM (39g3+)

34 I think we learn the concept of Godly obedience from listening to our parents. Only our earthly fathers won't be perfect. They'll have flaws--even deep flaws. All the same, God, from our flawed perspective seems "flawed". (Think Dunning-Kruger on a divine scale.)

I think that tolerating the imperfections of our parents, and yet honoring them, is akin to our not being able to fully grasp the Lord's perspective, yet none the less, and yet we yield to him. And of course we *honor* our parents, because they are flawed and yielding totally to them might not be the best course. Our parents *can* contribute to our wisdom; they are given that opportunity.

Now at 52 I understand what they meant. And my mom went through years of hell and still suffers to this day without her true love. I don't mean this as some criticism of dad, he didn't mean to die of a heart attack. I mean it as a warning to men here. Take care of yourself, for the sake of those who love you.

52 Dad keeled over and died unexpectedly at age 50, fifty years ago, when I was just 15.

His dad, the Patriarch, had died unexpectedly only four years previously, after which his kids' families began to unravel.

Dad and his dad heavily shaped my life, but not so much by direct influence. Never got to know them well. For good and ill.

My own offspring all said Happy Pappys Day to me this weekend, though, so I guess we're still on speaking terms. So there's that.

And this year I got to wish my son a Happy Pappys Day, for his almost one year old son. Now I are a grandpappy.

Generations roll on.

53 I had a dad who was abusive in every way. I have not seen him in ten years, nor do I wish too. I for sure do not want him around my grandchildren. We have a family wedding this weekend. I emailed him and told him to stay away from us. If he comes near my grandchildren, I may resort to violence.

54 My grandfather (disabled WWI vet), was a stay at home dad. Grandma said that she never came home to a messy house and he figured out how to do basic cooking. She had to do scrubbing and physical stuff, but she never had to deal with disorder.

57 So true! Used to have almost weekly calls with my dad when I started working to get advice on corporate culture and later management. Was the best thing ever when I would call and he *stopped* saying, "Oh, hi Lizzy, I'll get your mother..." and instead settled in for a chat.

83 A dependable male authority figure--uncles and grandpas--is of great help and guidance.

An undependable male figure is often harmful.

My wife's crazy, shiftless birth father, left the family when she was a child. She saw him sporadically, and he moved residences on her without notice. When she was a teen, and had located her father, he actually asked "How did you get this number?"

I bless her uncle John, who died before I knew her, for filling in that fatherly love she never got.

You know, this idea that two parent families are the norm, it's never really been true. Two parent families, where one dad and one mom have however many kids they do, together, and not with anyone else... that's a luxury.

It really is.

I am well aware LOTS of families have this luxury, but it's far from the norm, and becoming less so as we go, of course.

I just think it's worth noting, not as a way of saying anyone is right or wrong, or better or worse. It's worth noting, so that when people struggle precisely BECAUSE they lacked this luxury, we can perhaps be a little more caring and understanding.

114 My dad died last October while he was at a local cafe playing in his regular every other Monday bridge game with what he calls the old widows. He was sitting next to a retired RN and across from a CPR instructor and they kept his heart going until the ambulance got there to shock him a couple of times and get his heart going on its own and put him on a ventilator and send him off to a hospital. He woke up that evening in ICU and I asked him if he remembered what happened that day. He said no, why the hell was he in the hospital? I told him what had happened and that his bridge friends had brought him back by doing CPR. He said, what the hell did they do that for, I'm 90 damn years old? He was pissed off about that for a couple of days. My brother and I finally convinced him that he was better off alive and if he'd been meant to stay dead he would have. He has since thanked the wonderful women who saved his life. I will never be able to thank them enough. I love my dad.

120 I learned to pass, basically so people would pick me to play rather than being the odd man out. I can shoot a little now, but I jump like I have lead in my pockets, so I virtually never go to the hoop. On one day back in 1981, and I remember it vividly, I didn't get to play a single second in our bitty-ball league and that night my father played against the Harlem Globetrotters as a local All-Star in an exhibition game at the Worcester Auditorium.

126 Wonderful tribute -- many thanks for sharing.

My Dad and I didn't always see eye-to-eye -- I think he struggled to figure out how he ended up with as strange a child as I was -- but once I left home and especially after I married and starting having kids of my own, my respect and admiration for him grew enormously.

He passed away 22 years ago, done in by his own lifelong love of martinis and cigarettes. (Even when he was on 24-hour O2 for his emphysema, he'd sneak out on the back porch and smoke. Drove my mom -- an RN -- nuts.) I was the one who gave his eulogy as our family scattered his ashes out at sea. I still miss him.

127 Thanks for reposting this. Another one I would love to see is the response from the guy who looked like a typical headbanger type to a teenager/young man who was complaining about his "asshole" father. Instead of joining in on the old-guy-bashing, the headbanger-looking guy gave a really thoughtful response.

130 "My dad's sometimes exasperating bluntness, for example, also means you
always know where you stand with him. There is no guesswork to our
relationship. I don't know a more honest man, and I've never in my life
seen him behave any other way than exactly how he is. The trade-off is
some inevitable social awkwardness, but at least we always have a good
laugh about it."

If this were said at my memorial, if this were the only thing said at my memorial, I'd be ok with that.

17 Poster art - looks like a cartoon. Blind girls with books. Can't see the rainbow, doesn't understand colors.

How do you explain colors to a blind person? Perhaps using music as an analog. Red would be the deep angry bass line with drums. Violins in all their shades of tone. Orchestra represents the rainbow.

22 I very much appreciate the deep symbolism that Millais worked into this painting. Obviously, he anticipated our political situation today. The Blind Girl represents the Never Trumpers, oblivious to the wonderful things happening around them. The younger girl represents those who want to break away of them, since they can see which is happening, but the Never Trumpers clutch at them ever more tightly, desperately trying to force them to stay.

Of course Trump is the double Rainbow. The Biggest, Bestest, most YUUUGE rainbow you have ever seen!!!

Were it me, I'd have said it was a depiction of the cruelty of fate. God made a wonderful world, with bright and shining color and yet He also made the poor girl blind, forever closing her eyes to the beauty that surrounds her.

Perhaps Millais meant it as an allegory.

**checks wiki**

Apparently it is an allegory of the senses, "contrasting the experiences of the blind and sighted sisters."

I like my explanation better.

And apparently the paper on the girl's shawl reads Pity the Blind.

Huber is allegedly working with Horowitz, Horowitz just released a report with no criminal referrals and the bulk of recommendations were for better training.

Here is a typical recommendation from the report...

"6. The FBI [should] add a warning to all of the FBI's mobile phones and in order to further nofitfy users that they have no reasonable expectation of privacy."

In other words, hide your biases better dummies.

114 Been off for a few days, so missed all the commentary on the IG report.

Nassim Taleb has a character he uses in his books called Fat Tony and contrasts him against the IYI (Intellectual Yet Idiot) bookworm. In one case, he says if you flipped a quarter 50 times and it landed on heads all 50 times, and asked what the odds were that the 51st flip would be heads. The IYI would insist 50%. Fat Tony would know that you are dealing with a loaded quarter.

The IG report brought this to mind. The IYI insists that there was no evidence of bias. Fat Tony and the voters know otherwise.

Immigration policy:


Allowed the 9/11 terrorists to get visa approvals months after they incinerated 2,000 people.

Allows into the country diseases that were rare and/or defeated.

has caused an increase in crime

an increase in welfare use

encouraged youths to travel alone with all the attendant hazards.

First, passed a stupid water bill mandating fines for exceeding water usage limits, which are set ridiculously low.

Boom, there goes the value of our house.

Then, a few days after, the state of CA mandates that all new construction must have solar panels, which will add anywhere from 10K to 20K to the cost of new construction.

No solar on our house, boom, our house just became more valuable.

Also this morning on Fox, a short video clip of a DHS immigration center that was created out of a large warehouse in Texas. It has chain link fencing in sections to create rooms and of course, we had the shot of 8-10 year olds lying on mats on the floor covered in reflective silver blankets while there were adults standing in line to be processed.

Maybe someone should show a video of dead illegals in a semi trailer, or dead illegals with dead kids in the desert and then compare that to the detention/shelter they are now in.

I think you were right about the money part. The system worked out of the box for the A's because it helped them target players others didn't want using different metrics.

Once teams like the Sox started using it they were able to target the same players with a much bigger checkbook.

264 256 I think you were right about the money part. The system worked out of the box for the A's because it helped them target players others didn't want using different metrics.

Once teams like the Sox started using it they were able to target the same players with a much bigger checkbook.

Moneyball the movie is somewhat questionable history (just ask Art Howe), but that ending has always struck true to me.

Billy Beane goes to meet with the Red Sox, and they say that they are going to use his system. It's obvious that he's not going to be able to compete against the Sox if they do it, but he did manage to change baseball, which was part of his goal in the beginning.

No, the new water rules will affect home values, or would. The state has mandated a limit of 55 gallons per day per occupant. A shower alone will use close to that. Let's say one does three loads of laundry on one day. So much for your shower on that particular day.

You have to remember, it's CA so, politicians are all about "conservation" and not about finding ways to increase supply. These people believe it's possible to turn a finite supply into an infinite supply through conservation.

It was more than questionable, it was down right fake news in certain respects.

The Sox were just a bit behind the A's when it came to adopting sabemetrics which neither of them invented and each used slightly differently but the A's were ahead of the curve and their small payroll made the story more compelling.

Epstein hated that the movie told everyone about sabermetrics since it allowed other teams to understand they were missing a competitive tool.

It is retarded to impose these rules, but losing home value isnt an argument against it.

328 It's not an accordion, it's a concertina. A German type concertina, actually, which was more cheaply made than the much better constructed English and Anglo-German styles. German concertinas were mass produced and frequently used by the poorer classes for busking. A single button on a concertina only plays a single note, while on the left hand of the accordion a single button frequently plays a chord (accord is French for chord). The first accordion was German, and only had the left hand chord playing part (the right hand was just a board). The modern accordions were born when someone (French I think) added a flutina (which only played single notes on the right hand) to an original accordion.

All of these instruments are related to the harmonica, and to this day there is at least one row of every concertina and button accordion that is configured like a harmonica's scale.

Found an article about his Yale commencement speech where he says he's outgrown Moneyball as a concept.

Oh, this is interesting:

"Lewis was working on a book about baseball's nascent information age, but Epstein wanted nothing to do with him. "I can't believe Billy is letting him write this book," the article read. Billy Beane, Oakland's general manager, had granted Lewis access to his front-office operations, which meant revealing how the A's were mining information from statistical analysis, a tool used extensively at the time by only the Athletics, Indians, Blue Jays and Red Sox. 'He's handing out the blueprint'"

"Squeezebox" is a term that can apply to any bellows-driven instrument. It is, however, inappropriate as a term for a woman's reproductive appurtenances. If you're squeezing it, you're doing it wrong.

The Morning Report 6/18/18

feckless.jpg

Good morning kids. We're loaded for bear as we start a new week so let's get right to it. Before heading into the IG Report/FBI criminality, the other major story is Amnesty and Immigration. With midterm election campaign season about to ramp up, the RINOs, DIABLOs, CoC whores and assorted other open borders traitors in the Republican party are sensing that (gasp!) the party might actually not only retain both houses of Congress but win big and, most importantly, with more Trump supporters than ever before. That said, this is their last chance led by king RINO Paul Ryno to ram home some sort of Amnesty bill before they and their ilk are sent packing. This is on the heels of that insane discharge petition being falling just two votes short passage in the House. Initially, the President stated that this new bill was essentially DOA but then citing confusion as to the nature of the new bill (allegedly, he thought it was the discharge petition), the White House issued a statement that the President does in fact support the new legislation. Consider who and what the RINOs are and what they want, I cannot see this as in any way, shape or form advancing or supporting PDT's pillars of the border wall, border security, a cut to immigration and a return to the rule of law and same immigration policy. Unless this is once again Trump being Trump and nixing this at the last minute, there will be a vote on this in the House tomorrow. On a tactical level, the question marks are the House Dems who would rather gargle with glass shards than support anything the President supports (even if it advances their own cause) as well as Mitch McCocBrother and the Cucks in the Senate.

And speaking of the insane Left, the meme du jour is that PDT is cruelly separating parents from their children at the border. First, it was Obama and company who knowingly promoted foreign governments to have people put their children on trains, in the company of strangers at best and rapists and human traffickers at worst, in order for them to flood our country and create a situation where we had to do something to reunite them with their parents. Second, I saw some photos and descriptions of these "cages" where the kids were kept and they're the lap of luxury compared to the homeless shelters in Democrat shit-hole cities. Third, American children by the thousands are separated from their parents every year mostly due to the latter being incarcerated. So spare me the propaganda.

But of course, the invective and hatred doth flow. The two most vile examples come from the open sewer known as Kathy Griffien, who vomited up a Samantha Pee-like vulgarity at the First Lady, and worse, bald-headed Deep State stooge Michael Hayden who actually compared the President's enforcement of our already-existing laws as akin to the Nazi death camps. Really, General Hayden? In what way? It's difficult to not let one's BP go through the roof after hearing these detestable louts but on the plus side, it is in indicative of the fact that they are as always bereft of facts and logic, have now lost the ability to influence a majority of the public and can only do the Replicant Pris shot-by-Deckard boogaloo. All that said, frankly, this entire thing is a massive shit sandwich, Mr. President. I will assume you know this and will pull the rug out from under the RINOs at the appropriate time. Because if you fall for this, well, you know the score.

Moving on to the other huge story, we have now had the weekend to digest the IG Report on the FBI's investigation (or lack thereof) of the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal. What has come in to sharp focus here is the fact that the FBI is a thoroughly corrupt, political hit squad that uses the power of the law to protect its friends and to crush any and all opposition to its objective of keeping its Deep State masters in power in perpetuity. Along with the Obama and Clinton led national security effort to sabotage PDT's election campaign with the phony "dossier" and Russian collusion, the FBI's task was to clear Hillary of any wrongdoing in her massively criminal use and abuse of e-mail, including in the trading of government secrets to foreign powers in exchange for money. Unfortunately for her and the Deep State, and fortunately for us, the combination of Hillary's non-existent appeal to the voters, the candidacy of Donald Trump itself and the arrogance of the FBI and others in assuming Mrs. Rapist would be the 45th President of the United States led James Comey to do that press conference that was supposed to exonerate her by laying out the charges so, once elected, there'd be no taint on her administration (phrasing JJ!). How'd that work out?

Now, all these months later, the release of the report and current FBI capo Christopher Wray's excusing it away almost mirrors Comey and his press conference. Everything in that report, whitewashed as it may have been is a damning indictment of that agency, and yet Wray comes out and assures us that it in no way is reflective on its credibility and impartiality. So much so that he's going to have all employees undergo bias training. Say, what? Burn, scatter and salt, as the saying goes.

On the political front, Joe's Man-Chin is in hot water over misuse of campaign funds, ditto for the GOP frontrunner in the Georgia gubernatorial race and Pennsylvania's GOP is moving ahead with plans to deal with the horrible gerrymandering via the court and the great Salena Zito is taking the pulse of blue collar Ohio and it's registering Sherrod "coffee cake" Brown. Huh.

On the international scene, the big news is the election of a conservative to the presidency of Colombia. Touted as a potential Trump ally, this is crucial considering the house fire consuming neighboring Venezuela and the other bad actors in Central and South America since the coming of Obama. The other big story, reflective of our own battle with foreign invaders, is the situation in Germany where Angela "strangelove" Merkel might finally be on the ropes politically thanks to the hordes of Muslim "refugees" (90% male, between the ages of 15 and 49) that have been intentionally imported en masse over the past several years.

On the economic and policy fronts, an opioid bill is almost ready to be unveiled in the House, how Dodd-Fagg destroyed small business, PDT targeting Chi-Com thievery of our high tech, Grand Rapids rebounding and IBD on sound and bad economic policy.

In edjumakashin, U Mizzou has clicked itself into a world of hurt, NBC is talking "re-segretion" vis a vis charter schools and more on on-campus anti-white agitprop. From hither and yon, RFK Jr. sent a secret note to Erik" Whip-it-Good" Schneiderman asking him to crush Exxon-Mobil in NY State, a Trump supporter unfurled a PDT 2020 banner at a DeNiro-backed musical, the SPLC is a subversive anti-American front group and lastly an interesting piece from American Spectator about the effects of Air BnB on neighborhoods.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

    Posted by: J.J. Sefton at June 18, 2018 07:48 AM (VM6ev)

    69 And here it is - why the children are held, and why the Left really cares:

    ... the problem of child separation at the border stems from the decision of illegal immigrants to enter the U.S. illegally, for economic reasons, with their kids and then seek asylum.


    They seek asylum to extend their stay, knowing that U.S. law --- something called the Flores Consent Decree --- says that unaccompanied children can be held by the government for only 20 days. Since asylum petitions take more than 20 days to process, the government must either release the adults and children together into the country pending the ajudication of the asylum claim or hold the adults and release the children, thereby separating them.


    If the adult illegal immigrant is released while the claim is pending, it's extremely unlikely that the government will find him or her again. Thus, releasing the adult is tantamount to allowing the illegal immigrant to live in the U.S. regardless of the merits of the case. The Trump administration is right to reject this outcome.



    So the illegals are using their kids to game the system into getting into the US and fleeing before the appropriate immigration decision can be made. This is my shocked face.

    80 The Obama administration kept the child migrant crisis (i.e. the child illegal alien crisis) quiet because the Obama administration deliberately created the crisis as a way to get (and keep) more third-world illegal aliens in the U.S.

    The Obama administration deliberately put out the word to the illegal alien community that the easiest way to ensure that an adult illegal alien would be released if caught illegally crossing the border was if the adult was accompanied by a minor child that the adult claimed was his/hers. They also put out the word that illegal aliens already living in the U.S. would have a better chance of getting to stay if they had minor kids living here with them.

    The Obama policy was to release illegal alien "families" caught at the border, rather than detaining them, so that created an incentive for all sorts of unscrupulous people to grab kids south of the border and pretend to be their parents while crossing the border illegally. And illegal alien parents already living here had an incentive to hire smugglers to bring their kids in, so that they (the parents) could have a better chance of staying here.

    We'll never know how many kids were raped, kidnapped, tortured, sold into sex slavery, or murdered because of this idiotic scheme of Obama's to "fundamentally transform" the U.S. by importing more illegal aliens, but we know that it was more than a few. And that's what the administration was really trying to hide. Obama wasn't ashamed of his efforts to "turn America brown" by importing more illegal aliens, he just didn't want people to know how many brown kids had been raped and murdered as a direct result of his policies.

    138 Schlichter's latest over at Townhall is good.
    Excerpt:

    "Our country cannot go on like this. The rule of law matters, and the rule of law does not have exceptions that exempt preferred people and groups. We have tolerated this abomination long enough - it has to stop. Either the elite rediscovers its sense of duty and service and stops it, or we will stop it. Donald Trump is our latest attempt to do that. If he is unable to do so, the elite is really going to hate what we try next.

    See, they don't get to win.

    Some have taken to calling our political/cultural response to this abandonment of the rule of law "tribalism." And it is, because tribalism is the only alternative to the rule of law. Some like Jonah Goldberg rightly warn against the tribalist trend, and it is bad, but it sure beats the hell out of being the liberals' serfs. Others are fussily upset that we choose uniting to protect ourselves over surrender - to them I say, if you Fredocons don't like tribalism, then help us fix the freakin' problem instead of trying to shut us up and pretending everything is groovy.

    Once again, here are the two, and only two, options:

    - Rule of law
    - My tribe - the Normals - wins
    Notice how there is no option for "The elite tribe exercises unchallenged dominion over us." So, choose wisely."


    Which seems to sum it up in a nutshell.

    That AirBnB article is a good one.
    First, it illustrates how free markets work.
    Second, it illustrates how black markets work in a controlled economy.
    Third, (I only skimmed the article, couldn't finish it) it seems like these surplus and unused residences are being rented out to paying customers at the same time that thousands of homeless people sleep on street corners and back alleys.

    Forth, rent control, zoning, environmental impact statements and other tools of the socialist state tend to make it difficult for new residential construction to get started. (Zoning, I happen to agree with, but as we are seeing in news headlines everywhere, governments who control zoning, control who builds what where, and there is always an opportunity for a little graft.)

    _____________________

    Yes, that's one of the things that is so infuriating about this situation. Every damn one of these so-called parents, whether they're parents bringing their own kids across the border, or whether they're parents who've hired smugglers to do it or just told the kids to come on their own, are deliberately endangering their kids' lives.

    The entire southern border of the U.S. is under the control of various drug cartels. I live near the border. There is not a single area that is safe for an adult to travel across, let alone a child. And even if the kid manages to dodge the drug criminals and the sex traffickers, the desert itself is dangerous. The 100+ degree temperatures, the lack of water, the rattlesnakes, scorpions, bobcats, etc.

    Any parent who would expose their child to an illegal border crossing, whether alone or with a smuggler or some other adult, is an unfit parent. And it's even more despicable when you consider that most of these "parents" are deliberately exposing their kids to these dangers because the parents themselves hope to economically benefit from getting the kids over the border.

    Over 50% of all immigrants in the U.S., of both the legal and illegal variety, are receiving at least one form of welfare, and many receive several forms. And an immigrant who applies for and receives "asylum" in the U.S. is immediately eligible for the entire smorgasbord of U.S. welfare benefits.

    Meanwhile, our government is $20 trillion in debt, Social Security and Medicaid are close to insolvency and we're facing hundreds of trillions in unfunded liabilities for those programs and more, and idiot leftists want to throw open our borders and invite the entire third-world population to come here and live off of us.

    I took a 30% cut earlier this year due to my company having to dive for the floor to keep the contract. This new job would put me back up to where I was, or maybe more. So that 30% cut equals a 50% raise. Funny how math works.

    154 Over 50% of all immigrants in the U.S., of both the legal and illegal variety, are receiving at least one form of welfare, and many receive several forms. And an immigrant who applies for and receives "asylum" in the U.S. is immediately eligible for the entire smorgasbord of U.S. welfare benefits.

    Meanwhile, our government is $20 trillion in debt, Social Security and Medicaid are close to insolvency and we're facing hundreds of trillions in unfunded liabilities for those programs and more, and idiot leftists want to throw open our borders and invite the entire third-world population to come here and live off of us.


    And that's the thing here.

    I got into a discussion over the weekend with Aggressively Liberal Acquaintance. After some back and forth he gave me crap about being a racist.

    I had to explain, and I don't think this is non-mainstream thinking around here, that I don't give a damn about a person's skin color. If someone from Mexico or wherever wants to immigrate here, then we have a process for doing that per the law. BUT, that comes with an understanding that the immigrant will get what being an American is. Respect and fealty toward the philosophical ideals that make us great. Freedom, being your own person, distrust of large central governments, everything that is neatly summed up in the Declaration of Independence.

    THAT'S, to me anyway, what this is all about. It isn't about keeping brown people out. It's about keeping people out who want to fundamentally change what America is. I do NOT want to be relegated into a wage slave working to provide for someone else because I have the "wrong" skin color.

    If you look at page 5 of the 2016 immigration year book..

    https://tinyurl.com/y846d578


    You will see massive ups wings in immigration coinciding with each Presidency.

    And this does not even address our out of control illegal immigration.


    Bottom line, as I've said, our immigration policy is oriented towards reducing the white majority.

    All one has to do is look at Hazelton PA as the canary in the coal mine.

    In less than 15 years it went from less than 5pct hispanic to 55 pct hispanic with all of the attendant problems of a majority hispanic town.

    162 Bias Training!!!! They committed crimes!! Their bias was basically admitting they were using the powers of the office to torpedo the investigation of Hillary's secret server and all the broken protocols served to confirm what the said they were going to do. It's not "bias" its a crime.



    This is a classic case of the banality of evil. In their eyes they were just doing the "right thing" by "helping" the "good gal" across the line, cause you know, stinky poopy Trump can't be the Preezy, even if we have to make up stuff and then maliciously prosecute him and his associates to do it. Bored FBI agents seeking a thrill of being "in the mix" of a huge "save the country" political operation. But the FBI and DOJ were not biased, LOL. No you just broke the law in service of your favored political candidate, who had a secret leaky server in her toilet.




    Sure you might be able to infer that they were biased based in their actions and breaking of protocols to always favor Hilary and harm Trump, but that would be a very low sloping forehead retard from Ohio way to look at it.



    THIS IS WHAT A POLITICIZED DOJ AND FBI LOOK LIKE. They put their finger on the scale and got caught doing it. And when they are caught, they have no explanation for their actions other than "Don't be stupid". HEY, great big DOJ and FBI, that's why they have these protocols and rules, to ensure a fair treatment of the targets of investigations AND protect the agencies from being manipulated into biased trash pandas of an agency. Boo Hoo. Hilary screwed the pooch with her secret server and you all screwed the pooch trying to cover it up. They need to be brought to heel.


    The mantra in whatever the press there is left, should be "No! It's not the crime, but its the cover up. It's the crime AND the coverup."

    McCabe is a guy who saw himself as a big fish in a small pond as Deputy FBI Director; he no doubt assumed that in a Hillary regime he could move up, way up - if he made the right preparatory moves, including having his own spies in key FBI investigations. I'll bet he had many other sources than Page.

    Comey's motivations actions are hard to figure out. He was considering violating DoJ/FBI rules, and undercut Lynch, BEFORE the Lynch-Bill Clinton tarmac meeting. Per the IG report, in May 2016, IIRC, he sent an email to McCabe describing a future Comey press briefing on results of the MidYear Exam, and included a draft of what he eventually said on July 5. Why'd he go rogue? We'll never get a straight answer from Comey, now.

    Here to, the IG report lays our a clear case of bias and criminality and then delivers a conclusion that matches Comey's thesis fairly closely.

This is follow on legislation to the previous assault on "assault" weapons done by former gun grabbing loathsome pig AG Lockyer. That circa 2001 law required all then purchased AR's to be registered by sending a form to DOJ. Since then then black scary rifles have had 30 round magazines banned. Essentially they are limitations magazine fed rifles from the landscape. All the while such weapons are not even used in most crime even though they exist by the millions.

The ex-terrorist who he was running against would have taken Columbia down the path of Venezuela, and our press was full of stories of how "he's popular! He's reformed! He is leading in the polls!!!!"

    Yup. Duque won by a 54 - 41 margin. Another great prediction by the MSM pollsters. But most importantly, he is going to be a turn against the policies of the outgoing president of Columbia, who believed in accommodation and payments to all of the old terrorists, to keep them "happy".

    Yes and no.

    Yes the 65 act reoriented it from 1st world to third world sources but it was subsequent acts that pushed our immigration numbers through the roof.

    We went from legal entry being under 400k per year to averaging a million or more up to 1.8 million per year.

    It's not necesarily the reorientation but just the astronomical numbers.

    We are talking about roughly adding 500k Asians and 750k Mexicans and South Americas every year, and thats just legal immigration, we get anywhere from 400-750k additional illegals every year as well.


    We simply cannot absorb these numbers.

    214 Of all the idiotic, insane policies of the left, their immigration plans are the most dangerous and hateful. All the otehr policies can be undone and fixed if enough people wake up (or in the case of Obama, Trump just announces one of his EO's dead.) Immigration is different. Even if all 20 million illegals are sent home, it has already caused huge demographic changes and trends that cannot be undone. Any amnesty will just be icing on the cake.

    Population replacement is forever. I'm looking forward to that rich, vibrant diversity in places like Madison, WI and Vermont.

    There was a study from Germany last week predicting that something like 75% of all the new muzzie "migrants" that Merkel invited in are going to end up spending their entire lives living off German taxpayers.

    But yeah, that's sustainable, right? Not to mention totally fair to Fritz and his family, who are going to have to work until they drop to pay all the taxes that will be needed to keep Muhammad and his five wives living in taxpayer-funded housing and cashing their welfare checks as they sit on their asses in Frankfurt doing nothing (in the case of the "good" ones), or sit in front of their taxpayer-provided computers learning how to make IED's or ricin poisons so they can teach those German infidels a few lessons (in the case of jihadi migrants).

Where were your concerns about the well-being of these unfortunates during the Obama administration? Where were your concerns when your husband did nothing about illegal immigration because "we need the workers"?

    And, by the way, why is housing "in the desert outside El Paso" (the proposed site was Fort Bliss) okay for our military, but not illegals?

Multi-culturism and tolerance of the behaviors of peoples who aren't white is the future!

    And it's not just the crime, although that it bad enough. 100 Germans a day are now the victims of "migrant" crimes.

    But the worst part is that the Germans are going to be stuck paying for all these "migrants" for the rest of their lives. Only 25% of the "migrants" are ever going to be able to get jobs and support themselves in Germany.

    Not because she disagreed with the practical results, but because she understood that the "penumbra" based legal reasoning was so weak that the grounds for overturning the decision were implicit in the decision itself.

    276 That's the way I see it. They are demanding the AirBnB be regulated like a hotel and pay the 14.75% hotel tax.



    A lot of the AirBNB could be put out of competition by either slapping the hotel tax on them, or, here's a thought, eliminate the hotel tax on the hotels.

    278 Comey's motivations actions are hard to figure out.
    He was considering violating DoJ/FBI rules, and undercut Lynch, BEFORE
    the Lynch-Bill Clinton tarmac meeting. Per the IG report, in May 2016,
    IIRC, he sent an email to McCabe describing a future Comey press
    briefing on results of the MidYear Exam, and included a draft of what he
    eventually said on July 5. Why'd he go rogue? We'll never get a
    straight answer from Comey, now.

    279 The hotel industry doesn't like the competition. The socialists think that taxing outsiders doesn't hurt the local economy. The local residents don't like the influx of transients and the problems that come with it."

    You left out the biggest influence - local politicians who get big payoffs from the local hotel industry are pissed off that a lot of their "discretionary income" is being cut back. They're supposed to make sure that those hotels are able to fix prices by banning competition, and they've paid good money to all of their local politicians to make it happen.

    Nothing gets action like the threat of a politician being cut off from his income stream.

    280 So Truth is now called Intellectual Bullying ?? good to know. I thought this blog was a bunch of steel spined Rep./Libertarians. some sound like progtards, something that they don't agree with is now Intellectual bullying

    You're the guy with the attitude. I've been insulted quite often around here, also by you, as lazy, stupid, and so on because I (gasp) dared to THINK that this IG report would be a bunch of nothing. That it would be dismissed and forgotten about. That golly, I just didn't GET it.

    Well, I've been around long enough to see how these things turn out...and this is following according to plan. Perhaps a little tiny bit of red meat to keep the base a little in line, kind of like how the GOPe makes noises about being conservative. And here, with the long-delayed release of the report, scrupulously scrubbed to avoid any real condemnations...turns out the cynics were more right than wrong.

    I'm not buying the act any longer. And I'm not inclined to passively sit by and be further abused by the likes of you.

    I've read a review that says the movie jumps around in time almost randomly - apparently it takes almost a "Slaughterhouse 5" approach to linear time. (don't worry, will never watch it myself so I have to rely on rules) Apparently one scene will be in 1992, then suddenly you're in 1980 with no explanation, then it's 2002, then it's 1992 again, and the viewer spends most of the time trying to figure out what any scene has to do with the scene that either follows or precedes it.

    Sounds like most high school A/V students could make a film with a more cohesive plot than this turd ended up with.

    _____________________

    Obama also allowed illegal aliens to make asylum claims based on claims of gang violence and domestic violence. So the illegals were instructed (by LaRaza and the other lefty groups that aid and abet illegal immigration) to tell Border Patrol that they'd been threatened by gangs, or that their husband beat them, and they could then get "refugee" status, which immediately entitled them to an assortment of U.S. welfare benefits.

    And how did the illegals prove to the immigration courts that they'd been threatened by gangs or beaten by their husbands? They testified to it. LOL. No other proof required. And illegal aliens would never, ever lie in order to get to stay in the U.S. and be entitled to receive all sorts of taxpayer-funded welfare benefits, right?

    When parents are arrested for cause, are the children supposed to go to jail with them? The goal is to stop all arrests--and all border enforcement. They don't believe in borders because they no longer believe in America.

    An expensive Father's Day or Ooops!!!!

    Parenthood is filled with all kinds of expenses—both expected and unexpected. As it turns out, children need food and clothes and all kinds of stuff. And sometimes, if you’re especially unlucky, they break expensive artwork and you’re left holding the bill.

    That’s precisely what happened to a couple from Kansas, whose 5-year-old son broke a sculpture—titled “Aphrodite Di Kansas City,” made of glass and pieces of mirror—by “hugging” it. Now his parents are being asked to pay the estimated $132,000 that the piece is worth. The family was attending a wedding at the Tomahawk Ridge Community Center in Overland Park when the boy—who was unattended at the moment—wrapped his arms around the piece and caused it to fall to the ground, breaking it.

    French toast and pancakes exist to soak up and deliver to the mouth delicious maple syrup. Are you freaking kidding me?

    And, before you cite regional differences, know that I was born and raised in Scankles hometown of Park Ridge, IL. ; )

    19 Saw 'Hereditary'. It was good.

    Although since it was based on... heredity... in this case to receptivity to the spirit-world, there was one baaaad casting choice here. The son of the (white) family was so obviously Indian I was expecting him to break out into a Bollywood number.

    So, is someone going to step up and take over the nightly top five list?

    And, no! That is not a volunteer statement.

    22 What is a shit-ton of money in Newton, IA is not in NYC.


    Too true. What we were paying for BAH (two bedroom, 1.5 bath) down at the AFB near Omaha is now our mortgage payment (5 bedroom, 2 bath, and a MAN CAVE) in NW IA.

    26 Really enjoyed Kimmel in his Man Show days. It is sad to see what he has become. His Man Show partner, though, is even more awesome than he was then.

    32 Repost (OT) from the gun thread. No, I am not going to see the movie "First Reformed":

    The Atheist director pictures Christians as pious bores, who are intent on destroying the planet. The protagonist minister is losing his faith. The villain is a evil white industrialist who supports the church, because of course churches always have funding from corporations??!!!. The ministers small congregation is mostly made up of women he has sex with and rejected or women who want to have sex with him, He meets a woman whose husband has committed suicide. She's pregnant and (How subtle is this-her name is Mary?!!) The pastor is going to don the suicide vest of the wacko environmentalist husband and because he has cancer and going to die anyway and will blow up all the pious Christians at the 250th rededication of the church because they are destroying the planet by their lack of environmentalism, and
