The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

I (and most of the people around these parts) haven't been a neo-con for a very long time. But the Leftist/Democrat disinformation engine has been put into overdrive...the usual suspects are claiming that Pompeo and Bolton and Trump are provoking Iran because they are frantic for war.

Well, we have been at war with Iran for 40 years...the problem is that we didn't admit it. Iran has been the world's leader in fomenting terrorism against America and its allies, and is directly responsible for many of the American combat deaths in Iraq, via their roadside bomb technology.

Iran Shoots Down U.S. Spy Drone; CENTCOM Says It Was In International Airspace

So this is not surprising at all. If the drone was over Iranian territory, which is what the Mullahs claim (and I don't believe), then that's the cost of intelligence gathering. However, if the drone was truly over international airspace then we must respond. But contrary to the hopes and masturbatory dreams of the Democrats, we do not need to send armored columns into Iran. it is a fragile country, with many targets of opportunity that can be destroyed from afar, without risking American lives. Electric grids, their single gasoline refinery, military communications...all are excellent targets. And outside their borders they are even more vulnerable. Lebanon, Syria, Yemen (and others) have Iranian troops, advisors, military equipment, or all three.

And what is the argument against an American response? Well, the Iranian navy could close the straits of Hormuz, at least temporarily. That would send shock waves throughout the world. But who buys the most Mideast oil? China. And who can ramp up production, courtesy of fracking? America. However, any closure of the straits would demand a world-wide response, so both the closure and the Iranian navy's days would be numbered.

Iran is clearly testing the resolve of the current administration, and hoping that internal political pressure will force President Trump to moderate the sanctions because of the threat of war. But President Trump has shown that when threatened, he tends to punch back...harder. So Iran's typical game might not work now.

One option would be to keep any response under the radar, so Iran won't know for sure what happened. I like the idea of keeping them off balance and unable to point to American "provocation" and play the victim card.

39 I'm beginning to think Iran's leadership is locked into this provocation game, perhaps as Iraq was before Hussein met the hangman.

Iran has a lot of internal issues, disaffected youth with nothing better to do than act out. Iran's leadership has to focus their attention away from itself, so being jack wagons and doing the Death To America schtick keeps the agitated population distracted.

I think in that part of the world too, image means a lot. If Iran looked weak, they'd lose influence. Playing their games means projecting an image of strength, even if they aren't actually strong.

There's a lot we can do without getting kinetic, but I do wonder if that kinetic response might be the most effective one.

Posted by: WitchDoktor, as if anyone gives a shit at June 20, 2019 11:09 AM (tVWQB)

40 This kind of thing is a theme in VDH's lecturing. Getting deterrence back is a bitch and a half and is extremely dangerous. It could lead to a great big war. The question, though, is whether the costs of re-establishing deterrence are worth it. Given that the West is under attack by Islam on several continents (and from within by its Leftists), re-establishing deterrence is probably an existential imperative.

It can be done and there will be costs - dead men, disrupted trade, expenditure of treasure, etc. - but those costs will re-establish a semblance of order. Unless it all goes pear-shaped and we end up in a regional or global mega-war.

Of course, losing deterrence will often have that outcome, too. See Europe, ca. 1936-1945.

Losing deterrence puts you in a high-risk situation, and we lost deterrence.

The first is absolutely true. We are primarily a naval power, and should act like it. I do not see why we just couldn't sink the Iranian navy - all of it - if they tried that. That's what the Brits would have done under Victoria.

Just because under Bush we decided to go all Wilsonian, that doesn't mean we cannot use military and naval power at all. Just avoid committing to open-ended deployments, especially of troops.

Granted, thanks to the Bush policy, we probably can't even do as much with troops as we should, but that still doesn't mean we can't do anything.

45 Iran took out a piece of hardware, but with no loss of life, so a proportional response would likewise take away some hardware, but no loss of life. The Israelis have gotten pretty good at doing this with weapons depots in Syria - there'll be video of huge explosions, massive destruction in some Syrian city, but almost no casualties because about a little bit before the strike an Israeli agent whispers "psst, you people better get outta there, cuz the missiles are gonna start to land in about 90 minutes."

I probably should be more angry over what Iran is attempting to do. Though if I had to pick an option, I say we go for victim status and try not to provoke anything overtly. We've shed enough blood for that region. They'd have to do something big to make me want to do more.

Posted by: G. Gnome at June 20, 2019 11:11 AM (al6UK)

49 Sometimes we "draw a charge." Provoke somebody to see if they do something, and then they do it, then we can use that as a reason.

I don't know that the drone was over international territory. Story is 17 miles away from Iran. Iran has a weapon that can take out our drones from that far? That seems bad. But also useful info to have. And also something not all that useful to admit. Punk Iranians can take our $180M tech out of the sky just like that?

The play should have been it malfunctioned and crashed. Even if they HAD shot it down.

Instead seems like people are trying to spin up a confrontation.

Many still doubt they did blow up the tankers, and claim it was a false flag. Could be by the Saudis, but there does seem to be evidence it was Iran, and why are they shooting at our drones ... so we can't see what mischief they are up to?


There was a response to the tankers ... several of their little ships (that had allegedly been carrying missiles or some such) were quickly aflame. And the last I saw those drones are $222M each, how the heck they cost so much is beyond me, after the initial research. But surely there is some local radar data confirming location, to convince the public. We need to find the right target ... tick tock.

That's clearly where Japan was headed in 1945, but we short-circuited the process with nukes.

Pre-industrial societies are harder to do that to (see VDH on this.) But it's one step toward that end. It cripples them economically, which is the point.

She said Tehran had settled on a "two-prong strategy of showing that they, too, can apply pressure by being a pain but also saying, 'We're willing to talk.' "

And because Iran cannot defy American might on its own, it may be hoping to coerce European and Asian nations to rein in the United States.

The result, the experts say, is an Iranian strategy, rational but risky, that increases the likelihood of the nuclear agreement's collapse and even of outright war in the hopes of compelling the world to avert both.

Use cruise missiles to take out the homes of as many mullahs and ayatollahs as you can find.

181 The Solicitor Generals filing at SCOTUS for the NY STATE RIFLE & PISTOL V. NEW YORK, NY case in October is very narrow. IT mostly talks about the right to "bear" arms in the context of transporting the weapon to a range or gunsmith. It only nibbles around the edge of their near complete ban on carrying outside the home, which is something the lower courts have completely trampled on by abusing Heller.

I would have expected a better filing from the Solicitor General. Especially given the narrow and ridiculous way this SCOTUS rules. Yea, the Second Amendment means we can take our guns to the range and gunsmith. Thanks for nothing.

It may be rational, but it grossly overestimates the "leverage" that anyone in Europe of Asia has over Trump. If they had "leverage", we'd still be part of that ridiculous Paris Accord.

And also, if this is their strategy, it greatly underestimates the ability of the Trump administration to cause Iran pain. Real pain.

Mid-Morning Open Thread [Kris]

Kauffman Cornelia.jpg


Cornelia, Mother Of The Gracci, Pointing To Her Children As Her Treasures
Angelica Kauffman

Angelica Kauffman painted at a time when women were heavily restricted from the royal academies, but she showed so much undeniable talent that she was a member of five across Europe. This work is an excellent example of Neoclassicism, a style about heroism, virtue and idealism. It is heavily theatrical and melodramatic. It was the first of two (or second of three depending on who you ask) major artistic expressions of the late Enlightenment period.

For me, the key elements in this work are composition and color. Cornelia dominates the painting, standing just off-center to the right, dressed in white, gold and purple. These three colors have high significance and give her an almost angelic, queenly, noble quality. Farther right, Cornelia holds her young daughter’s hand as she talks with another woman. The girl’s attention is on the shiny objects in the woman’s box. The other woman sits and is earnestly showing off her jewelry. She is also dressed in white and gold but these colors are covered with a vivid red, the color of carnality. Immediately, just by the colors alone, we are given a hint that there is something different about Cornelia.

These three figures are all connected and form one large mass of females. Two boys are to the left. The older boy’s colors mimic his mother’s, linking them and possibly saying that he is the nobler of the two. The younger boy is in red, maybe representing his immaturity. Red on both ends of the composition also frames and unifies the piece further. The younger boy is hunched over, forcing him to look up to his older brother too. This may foreshadow their adulthood when the younger will follow the older into politics and take over after the older is murdered.

A space separates the male and females but Cornelia unifies the groups using her eyes that look to the right and by her gesture towards the boys that draws the viewer’s eye to the left. The eyes swing back and forth across the canvas taking it all in. Cornelia is the tallest form in the painting and as we move to the edges the figures squat, creating a shallow triangle. This may be an homage to Greek pedimental sculpture, but it also makes everyone, including the viewer, look up to Cornelia, literally and figuratively. Kauffman’s attempts to move the eye around the piece while keeping the focus on Cornelia is important because those reds are so bright and dominant. The separation of the sexes may represent the gender expectations in Rome and Kauffman’s time. The boys are holding a book and a scroll signaling their focus on education and the intellect while their sister focuses on emotional and earthly things.

Kauffman is a woman in a profession dominated by men, painting for a female audience. Here, Cornelia is presented as the Ideal Mother, a model for women everywhere. While the other woman and the girl are preoccupied by shiny baubles and shallow things, her priorities are raising good, well-educated, grounded men. The Gracci brothers are known to Roman history as reformers and martyrs, and Kauffman answers the question of where such men come from… they come from good mothers.

Treasure Chest - a limerick

A murderous mother named Kate
Treasured her children so great
She said, "These three in fact,
I have kept them, they're intact
But in my basement I've got pieces of eight."

A number of years ago (okay, several decades ago), I knew people in college who drew a parallel between John and Bobby Kennedy and the Gracchi brothers. Both pairs of siblings were considered "reformers," and both ended up being killed as martyrs. I'm not sure of the politics of the later Republic, but it might just have been that the Gracchi went against the landed interests, the optimates, who had them killed by inciting the Roman mob against them.


And there are those that say JFK and RFK were bumped off by people in the pay of our landed interests. Dunno . . . but the parallel is interesting.

Indeed. After a quick refresh, their redistribution of land thing wasn't the same as the "pay off the people" shtick of modern Leftists--it was a result of something causing a real issue in military recruitment. Summary, a lot of the public land had been gobbled up by the senators, often at the expense of smaller landholders. Since property ownership was required for military service, this was a problem. Add to that the fact that land grants were a common reward for military service--and there wasn't much left after the senators grabbed it all--and you get problems, like the troop revolts of the time.

Greedy senators causing national security issues, I guess there really is nothing new under the sun.

Posted by: Marcus T at June 20, 2019 10:00 AM (VpIIl)

From what I've read Iran, despite being a Gulf power, doesn't have too much in the way of a military navy. It wouldn't take much effort for a real naval power like the US to deal a crippling blow to it.But we've got to be very careful how we handle this. I personally think Iran is baiting the US into a fight, because the sanctions are really hurting them. The mullahs are in trouble and they need to shake up the situation somehow, to turn the attention outwards instead of having their people rebel against the mullahs, which they are always a hair away from doing. In other words, the Iranian govt is getting nervous, and desperate.
Which probably means we need to just stay the course and let them implode. A military fight is exactly what they want right now.

As far as I know, Latin today is pretty much pronounced a lot like Italian. We can hardly ask the ancient Romans. I usually pronounce Latin words as if they were some unholy brew of Italian and Spanish.


What I've picked up in my studies is individual words and phrases, and the Latin words that many English words trace back to. I've also picked up that learning Latin involves learning one hell of a lot of grammar (case endings, verb conjugations . . . eccch).

271 The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the federal government's authority under a 2006 law to require thousands of sex offenders to register with authorities in the states where they live, as the justices ruled against a child rapist convicted in Maryland.

In its 5-3 decision, the court rejected convicted sex offender Herman Gundy's argument that in passing the law, Congress handed too much power to the U.S. attorney general in violation of a principal of constitutional law called the nondelegation doctrine. This doctrine forbids Congress from assigning its legislative powers to the federal government's executive branch.

I figure we ignore something like this. See my post above. They have to be careful too. They need to goad the US into a fight without it being an obvious, overt act on their part to start one. If they continue to up the ante until we are forced to retaliate, IE, do something egregious like attack our ships and people directly, they lose the public opinion advantage. We have to look like the heavy or it doesn't help them with either their own populace or the international community.

There has never in the history of mankind been any concept of same sex marriage.


Gay marriage doesn't exist and never has existed.


It's a completely conjured concept that's been around for roughly 15 years.


It's never received the imprimatur from American citizens either through referendum or democratic representational means and institutions.

328 WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court declined on Monday to change the longstanding rule that says putting someone on trial more than once for the same crime does not violate the Constitution's protection against double jeopardy - a case that drew attention because of its possible implications for President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.

The 7-2 ruling was a defeat for an Alabama man, Terance Gamble, convicted of robbery in 2008 and pulled over seven years later for a traffic violation. When police found a handgun in his car, he was prosecuted under Alabama's law barring felons from possessing firearms. The local U.S. attorney then charged Gamble with violating a similar federal law. Because of the added federal conviction, his prison sentence was extended by nearly three years.

They'd better be a *lot* cheaper if they're expendable.

Heller (200 was the first time the SCOTUS incorporated the 2nd amendment under the 14th Amendment, thus applying 2nd Amendment protections to the State Govm'ts as well as the Federal Govm't.

Incorporation of the Bill of Rights under the 14th Amendment, so that they also apply to the State Governments, has a been a very long, drawn out, and overly complicated process, going on for just about 150 years now.

I think it was the 13th amendment that changed that. Used to be states could do that.
Posted by: Someguy at June 20, 2019 10:56 AM (EV0u2)


Proof yet again that any rule can be perverted by the Courts. Here's the text of the 13th ...

Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for
crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist
within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.


It says nothing about the Bill of Rights, yet here we are, stuck with the notion of Incorporation - one of the biggest abuses of Federal Power in the history of the Republic.

The Bill of Rights was argued against from the beginning for this very reason. What started as ten relatively simple limits on Federal Power has been perverted into over twenty different means by which the camel's nose has been allowed into the State's tent.

Iran's Gambit: Force the World to Rein In Trump


She said Tehran had settled on a "two-prong strategy of showing that they, too, can apply pressure by being a pain but also saying, 'We're willing to talk.' "

And because Iran cannot defy American might on its own, it may be hoping to coerce European and Asian nations to rein in the United States.

The result, the experts say, is an Iranian strategy, rational but risky, that increases the likelihood of the nuclear agreement's collapse and even of outright war in the hopes of compelling the world to avert both.

375 Then came bad news from South Bend, the town Buttigieg leads as mayor. A white police officer had shot and killed a black man early Sunday. Buttigieg canceled several days of campaign events -- including an LGBTQ gala in New York -- and rushed back to Indiana to "be with the South Bend community," in the words of a campaign spokesman.

Instead of showcasing But­tigieg's ability to lead through a crisis, however, the shooting is exposing what has long been considered an Achilles' heel of his candidacy: his frosty relationship with South Bend's black residents. Since arriving on Sunday, Buttigieg has alienated the family of the dead man, Eric Logan, 54, skipped a vigil at the scene of the shooting, and sought advice from outsiders, including the Rev. Al Sharpton of New York.

The Morning Report - 6/20/19

owensquote.jpg

Good morning kids. Thursday and we're loaded with all sorts of juicy stuff guaranteed to make you nutsy-fagin so here we go. First up in the border and immigration crisis, a story that broke late yesterday where the FBI has arrested a Syrian refugee for plotting to blow up a church in Pittsburgh. Since the deviant in question is neither Jewish, Christian, conservative nor an NRA member, soon after the white patriarchy is blamed, we will be admonished against Muslim backlash before the incident is memory-holed. And this bastard came right in through the front door, presumably during the Obama reign of error. Who the hell knows what's streaming across our border now? Wait a second, we do know; Africans from the ebola belt as well as Pakistanis and Bangladeshis IIRC, along with the illiterate, destitute peasantry of most of Central America courtesy of bus, train and plane tickets paid for by a certain Nazi collaborator among others.

Meanwhile, one brave bureaucrat in New York State has defied Andrew Cuomo and his Democrat apparatchiks in the state legislature by stating he will refuse to give drivers licenses to illegal aliens. I fully expect him to get the Kim Davis treatment or worse. Yet despite this insanity, despite President Trump's victory predicated on border security and sane immigration policy, we have a GOP that wants to help... by greasing the skids for the invading hordes to get comfy and have legal aid bought and paid for by our tax dollars (see the link in the politics section about the "Tessio Republicans"). Elsewhere, ICE is giving priority to booting illegals with final removal orders, along with halitosis and un-dissolved flecks of Efferdent, Nancy Palsi projects, a legal immigrant looks at the madness, a study indicates the US is no longer the number one destination for asylum seekers (gee, how did that happen do you suppose?), and finally Chiquita Khruschev AOC sets a rhetorical trap for herself and her fellow Maoists with her "concentration camps" bilge.

To the Clinton/Obama Coup + Mueller Deception and Cover-Up and Congressional Inquisition where we have some interesting developments. Margot Cleveland over at The Federalist is high on Michael Flynn's new attorney exposing even more of Spygate criminality to a broader audience, with Manafort rotting in jail and the Dems itching to go after Trump once he leaves office in 2036 (inshalla [sarc]), Monday's SCOTUS ruling on double jeopardy puts a dent in his issuing of pardons, and Mueller might regret going after Roger Stone.

Looking at the Democrat Scandal Sheet, fresh off the news of the conviction of this Jackson Cosko stooge, news comes now of a second Congressional staffer being charged in the "doxxing" of Republicans during the Kavanaugh hearings. So that means it goes from a one-off incident to what I think was a plot to sabotage and smear the nominee and his supporters by any means necessary. And this fish stinks from the head. The head being Maggie Hassan and possibly Dianne Feinstein. Oh yes, gentle reader. I haven't forgotten her involvement in this. Stay tuned. Elsewhere, the FBI and DHS are probing a Leftist subversive organization for trying to steal massive amounts of Michigan voter data, and Louisiana's John Bel Edwards gets money from Hollywood almost immediately after returning from a Tinsel Town junket. Also, Maizie Hirohito, born of a Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Whorehouse from a pimp momma, is circling the wagons around fellow detestable Dem dolt with the deep decolletage Chiquita Khruschev AOC, claiming her disgusting comparison of US detention of illegal aliens to concentration camps is just an attempt to protect Trump. Also in that vein, an excellent essay on the Left's eternal lying about Auschwitz and its meanings. More on this story in a moment.

Politics: Trump's re-election kickoff rally was by any metric an incredible success. He hit it out of the park rhetorically, both in terms of underscoring the accomplishments despite the resistance as well as dollars: $28.4 million in the first 24 hours which I believe is more than the total raised so far of the putative Dem leaders to date. He also perfectly described who and what the Democrats are. Meanwhile in the Swamp, at another dog and pony show to pimp slavery reparations - yet again - the Dems went apeshit when two black witnesses took to the microphones to denounce the concept. One of them, former NFL star Burgess Owens dropped a truth nuke on the hearings by rightfully declaring that every misery and indignity suffered by black Americans throughout our history is the fault of Democrats. Linked in the First Amendment section, a hack from the NY Times without even realizing the insanity of his statement belched up that blacks testifying against reparations "have no other qualifications than being black." Let that sink in.

Meanwhile, poor Joey Bidet is taking all kinds of flak for praising his past collegial relationship with two horrible, unreconstructed Democrat racists, the Southern Baptists go insane and embrace identity politics, Fauxca-Has-Been and Bernie Sandersnista go at each other, Tubby Riefenstahl warns Dems about enormity or something, three good links look at the GOP in all of this with Tu-Ca telling it like it is about the Koch CoC Whores, Obama will not sheathe his shit-Midas finger for 2020, and David Harsanyi on that tragedy behind Chiquita Khruschev's utter pig-ignorance vis a vis concentration camps.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: Target of the Columbia Journalism Review speaks out about being smeared for connecting the dots between journalists and Antifa, Josh Hawley on the warpath against Big Tech/Brother, California Church and ACLU sue election official over banned Black Lives Matter banner, smack down of Chris Cuomo on nationalism, and Republicans ask DoJ why Al Jazeera is not considered a foreign agent of Qatar?

Guns: Judge smacks down California attempt to ban gun shows.

Abortion: Tom Cotton slams companies over hypocritical pro-abortion stances.

Foreign Desk: Mexico ratifies PDT's USMCA trade deal, US official claims an Arabian Gulf of Tonkin incident with shoot down of US drone in international waters, the usually pro-Iranian Germany blames Iran for tanker attack, Victor Davis Hanson says Trump holds all the cards with Iran, Chi-Coms facing all kinds of internal strife in its cities, two Russkies and one Ukie charged with shooting down that Malaysian Airliner (not the one in Don Lemon's black hole theory), and Daniel Greenfield talks about Israel's new town named after Trump.

DEE-Fense: A look at the growing menace of cyberwarfare.

We-All-Slam-For-I-Slam: Canuck gets 26 years for aiding and abetting 2009 Iraq terror attack that killed US soldiers, and BBC imam bitches about Jooz and the Holocaust. Meh, another day ending in I KEEEEEEL YOU!

Domestic Affairs: New Jersey man gets five years in the slammer for getting his own reparations, Bill Cassidy blames Medicare and Social Security for debt and deficits and sez cutting bureaucracies elsewhere won't matter much, Dems have no solution for the latters' looming implosion, a look at the madness of California taxation, and Justice Thomas' credo. Screw Danny Glover; Clarence Thomas is a real expert on the legacy of slavery.

The Economy: Lockheed Martin announces $142 million Arkansas plant, the big upside of tariffs despite a little initial pain, and Cuomo's licenses for illegal aliens will destroy wages for legal citizen cabbies.

Crime and Punishment: NXIVM sex cult leader found guilty. Has Gillibrand ever been grilled about her former relationship with them (no, of course not)? Mayor Buttplug's anti-violence commission in South Bend is a flop. Mayor Pete: Make America Go South and Bend Over. Also, the Feds make a record 33,000-pound cocaine seizure. Where's Murkowski?

Vatican Sex Abuse Scandal: Whistleblower in the Vatican claims DC Basilica's rector a member of the "Gay Mafia." They rub glitter on the bullets instead of garlic...

Education: Rabbi Fischer on Chiquita Khruschev's concentration camp comments as a symptom of our rotting educational system, and K-12 Red Ed. Well, the latter explains the former.

Feminazism and Transgender Psychosis: IAAF is having none of the tranny garbage deeming biology not identity as defining who you are, and three high school girls file lawsuit against the junk-tuckers competing with them.

Hither and Yon: Blame the French for plummeting birth rates, two essays on Taylor Swift's SJW implosion, John Stossel on the moral case for capitalism, high tech is now lowbrow for the elite and that's unfair for the masses (I think I got that right), and a look at the fundamentalist religious cult of the Progressives. They truly are what they mock so mercilessly. Projection ain't just a river in Egypt.

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

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.

"Don't get too funny, Walter buddy," Senator Van Ackerman said at last in a softly threatening tone. "Things are going to happen in America that you just don't dream of in your nice liberal circles. You just think it's all a nice, sweet little intellectual game, don't you? You always have, you and your - sweet-smelling friends, playing fast and loose with America just so you could make points at Washington cocktail parties and tell one another in New York how mincy-pincy" - his mouth curled in a savagely sarcastic and unpleasant fashion - "just how rootsy-tootsy, smart-ass brilliant you all are. Well, let me tell you, Walter boy," - his voice dropped to a menacing quietness - "let me tell you, things are getting into the hands of the people who really know what's best for America, now. You and your crowd have served your purpose, you've paved the way, you've conned the boobs and conditioned them to accept any lie if it's smooth enough, you've told them what to believe and made them so confused they don't know which way is up. You've done your job, Walter boy: you've paved the way for us. And now," he concluded softly, "here - we - are."

Fuck that. I've been around the 29 block a couple of times +, and this has been holy writ for law. You cannot charge a person twice for the same crime.

Now you can. Sure, the states and the feds have played a cutesy game in the past (see 3 felonies a day for details) where the state charges a person with murder, loses, and the feds come with 'violation of civil rights' or somesuch shit.

But it wasn't the exact same crime.

And so we move ever farther away from any limits on state/federal power.

39 The New York state assembly has gifted Uber, DoorDash, Amazon, and business groups a huge new supply of 250,000 illegal immigrant drivers, so depressing wages for the many Americans and legal immigrants who earn their wages by delivering people, cargo, and food to their destinations.

The new labor supply will partly counter President Donald Trump's "Hire American" immigration policies that are now forcing up Americans' wages. "Wages are rising at the fastest rate in many decades . . [and] they're rising the fastest for the lowest-income Americans," President Donald Trump said at his June 18 campaign-opener in Florida.

56 According to court documents and statements made in court, Shahbaz worked at WB Trade Fair Grocery, located at 43 Willow Street in Waterbury. Shahbaz was related to the store owner and often worked shifts later in the day. In 2015 and 2016, Shahbaz and others illegally allowed customers to redeem their food stamp benefits for cash and other ineligible items, including cigarettes, a tall glass bong and other items. Shahbaz charged the customers' food stamp cards approximately double the value for these illegal transactions. . . .

Raul Carlos Monarca-Gonzalez, Tallat Mahmood and Tahir Shahzad, who all who worked at WB Trade Fair Grocery, previously pleaded guilty to food stamp fraud. Monarca-Gonzalez and Mahmood were each sentenced to 30 months of imprisonment, and Shahzad awaits sentencing.

Completely agree.

The way food stamps work today, with the delivery of cash to a recipient's card for use as a credit card is essentially a kind of universal basic income. They don't have to get off their butts and pick up the hand-out each month, they don't have to feel different/be made aware that this is a hand-out, not an employer's direct deposit of wages, they can buy all sorts of frivolous and unhealthy items at all kids of non-grocery store business ("Get yer glazed donuts and Doritos coated cheese stick at 7-11: We Take EBT!"

The entire program needs an overhaul.
We need to make it less convenient, more restrictive, and bring back the awareness that this is a hand-out, not something they are owed.

99 Ouch!

The urgency and intensity with which [Taylor Swift] delivers every gay bourgeois sentiment smacks of a deep personal insecurity and desperation. Swift seems to be hiding behind a rainbow flag so as to conceal the fact that she's lost her spark personally and (as one is deeply connected to the other) artistically.

Is it merely coincidence that her bougie feminist activism increases precisely as her sexual market value decreases? What is left in life for sexually liberated women once her reproductive worth, denied for so long, diminishes completely, along with her opportunity to participate in the natural order?

Swift like so many before her has chosen to participate in that big lie. This disappointment is hardest felt because she was once so naturally beautiful, good, and true. She is now none of the above. All she has left is cheap imitation. It's a real loss for her personally and for the music scene at large.

Taylor Swift's latest propaganda project will age as gracefully as she and Katy Perry do. I'm now counting down the days 'til the next breakup and breakdown, the next cat adoption, and (inevitably) the day Swift engages in performative bisexuality or shaves her head. She should have chosen the rose garden over Madison Square. What a shame.


Look at what happened to 'teen dream' Katy Perry when she embraced politics and activism: she went from sexy singer with cupcake-covered tits to sexless, old maid aunty with the 70's blonde near buzzcut and dumpy retro apparel.
RS McCain is right about feminism making women ugly.

If we want people to make more money "$15 an hour"! for unskilled entry level jobs, one way to ensure that is to quit paying Americans not to work. Another way is to prevent MILLIONS of unskilled foreigners from moving here with this open borders scam. They keep playing both ends against the middle.

Particularly after that razor cut latter day turd is subsequently caught saying a large percentage of people will never vote for him; jeez I wonder who they were (and it should've included me). Trump was the first nominally GOP candidate to campaign in black areas around me and it was smart politics, particularly against some old bat using a really bad fake accent and nattering about hot sauce. Trump realized he was running to be their President too and the commiecrats are shitting their already full Depends on how the message is getting across.

Most people grow up at some point, usually when they start out on their own and paying the bills. And taxes.

177 Re: What AO-C's Concentration Camp Comments Tell Us About the Deconstruction and Breakdown of American Education --- Wow, he nails it:


[]Less than she is a person, Ocasio-Cortez is a Specimen. (AOC, if you are reading this, a "Specimen" is not someone who flies to the moon.) The Left Media and their Democrat patrons make a grave error when they present O-Cortez as a person of thought. She is not an original thinker. Rather, she is a metaphorical Laboratory Rat who demonstrates repeatedly what happens when someone born with a mind that seems capable of operating properly emerges from the present-day American university system.


Thus, she is not an "idiot" or "moron" in the objective sense --- not unless she truly has come up with all her "ideas" on her own, a highly doubtful proposition. Having observed O-Cortez's public communications for a year, I am more convinced than ever that she simply is the product of a broken education system that deconstructs facts and reality, teaching instead that there are no facts at all. Rather, I have "My Truth," and you have "Your Truth."

Remember: She attended Boston University on a John F. Lopez Fellowship. She interned in Ted Kennedy's office and was smart enough never to ride in a car alone with him. She graduated cum laude from Boston University's College of Arts and Sciences in 2011, majoring in international relations and economics. Because she got good grades, she clearly reflects the "education" she received. If you are served the most wonderful steak imaginable, and then they pour a gallon of kimchi on it and grind that kimchi into it, you better like kimchi because that is what it will taste like. Her grades mean that she absorbed the pabulum she was spoonfed.

The whole reparations scam is just a lefty tactic they use whenever a Republican is president. They know it has zero chance of ever becoming law, it's just more kabuki.

Do you remember a big reparations movement under the 8 years Obama was president, particularly the first two years when the left had a veto proof majority in Congress?

192 The problem is, we only come up with one-shot moments. We don't follow
up. We don't build momentum and cumulative narratives. The Left gets all
on board and builds massive, grinding, relentless narratives. They
don't even have to try -- it just happens through some hive osmosis.


IMO, the flip side of that is that we're far more efficient in our messaging. That one instance of Burgess's testimony pretty much destroyed the prog's entire long-term efforts at brainwashing. Of course, we still need to push his message hard, and Bretibart radio helped that by having him on afterwards.

I sure remember that. My late father was a street cop for 30 years, and for most of the trial he was of the opinion that those L.A. cops were getting what was coming to them. "You don't abuse your prisoners" he'd say, this based on the "edited" King videotape that was constantly shown.

But then, right after those cops were convicted in Federal court, somebody at one of the networks screwed up and they showed the COMPLETE, UNEDITED King tape. And boy howdy the old man was livid. He'd not seen that before and was he ever pissed, because that tape showed why King was getting clubbed. "He wouldn't stay down! They were perfectly justified under those conditions!"

From that day onward, if the media said the Sun rose in the east, my father assumed it was a lie.

But this is exactly what the Supreme Court ruling yesterday was about; of course State and Federal Statutes will have somewhat different wording, but the question is about whether they can be tried for the same conduct 2 different times in 2 different courts.

I would prefer the answer to be no, but the SCOTUS decision simply confirmed what's been commonly accepted law for at least 25 years now. Interesting note - those who say that you should only judge a decision by who was for it should note that Ginsburg was against this one. I agree with her this time.

Disney is it's own little kingdom down here: their property isn't even considered to be part of the legal jurisdiction since they have their own police and fire departments. Remember that Epcot was originally planned to be its own city where the employees also lived.

247 Daniel Henninger at the WSJ provides a good breakdown of the Fox Poll that puts the president 10 point behind Biden. The money shot is something I've mentioned before. People want steady,reliable leadership, not more hyperbole. Fair or not, Trump is being associated with the latter and getting crushed in the process.

This isn't a problem that's going away and the president would be wise to address it. There is not enough talking about his real accomplishments and too much on the hyperbolic. Is immigration a big issue for people, yes, it is. Should it be the headline issue that get's repeated like a mantra? No, and the polls are reflecting it.

The president should take some time to improve his substance over the hyperbole- and there is plenty of it. Save the nicknames and impressions for the punch line.

They absolutely give a fuck about them. They're making a fortune off of them. The cartels control the border -- both sides. Nobody crosses without paying for the privilege, not unless they want to end up with their head on a pike. Those Bangladeshi illegals that were caught in TX were paying between $7,000 to $25,000 per person to the cartels. And who knows how much those huge "caravan" organizers are paying, but it's probably not pocket change.

Illegal immigration into the U.S. is a multi-billion dollar a year business for the cartels. They give plenty of fucks about keeping their gravy train running.

Wishful thinking and more whistling by the graveyard.

I' almost certain Biden will be their candidate. The DNC has the process rigged for that. His so-called moderate stance comports with most of the Democrats electorate. Poll after poll shows that about 1/3 of the Democrat voters agree with the "extremist" part of the parties views. Meanwhile, Republicans are riding that like it's 100%, and in the process all that focus is turning off Independents in the middle.

I'm not a big believer in polls, but when you start to look at the methodologies and pull out discernible facts, it becomes much more disconcerting that people are ignoring some of it.

I'm not ready to stake the next election on- "oh, the polls are always wrong, Sleepy Joe!! and "Immigration!". WE will be on the losing side if that happens.

As I said in @170, I hope he focuses more on the future too. But I don't agree with your conclusion that "he hasn't and it's working to his detriment". It's early days still, and I think he spent quite a bit of time in his Orlando speech talking about the next term, and the need to really drill down on regulation and change. By "change" I hope he meant spending, but no populist politician talks about cutting programs in an election.

What is a good strategy is doing exactly what Trump started doing last summer. He appointed his new campaign chairman last summer, Brad Parscale, and Parscale has been doing outreach programs ever since.

He has been doing things like micro-targeting of voters, something he started doing for the 2016 election, signing up hundreds of volunteers across the country, using the Trump rallies to identify and sign up supporters, etc., etc.

Nothing is certain in any election except for the old truism that you can't beat something with nothing.

330 imo Trump's name calling is "branding", and if it has enough truth to it, the brand will stick. (low energy Jeb, crooked Hillary). It puts the bad guys on the defensive ... but there is no defense for Crooked Hillary.


Even when Trump is "punching down", it is not always about the smaller target, but the broader principle. (sometimes it may be a mistake, idk). But for example, if he attacks a global warmist scammer, it is to denounce the whole AGW scam, not about punching down on one person (maybe) ... but there needs to be a real face to the punch.

Yeah but like those two worthless pieces of shit, we hated the party and their financiers for inflicting them on us and the same will happen to them. I actually think we're ahead of them by having taken the party from Top Men and pretty blatantly, albeit indirectly, told them they're not getting it back. This has been long overdue and those assholes could've done this the easy way by not treating the Tea Party like shit after they were instrumental in reaching the top of the shit heap. But they only do things the hard way...

I get this - with Trump, there's always going to be some cringe when he goes too far.

However:
A. Trump is Trump; this is who he is. He is energized by the chaos and the public verbal brawling.

B. Even when Trump does go against and is statesmanlike (dinner with the Queen, his D-Day speech at Normandy) the MSM creates the narrative of chaos (Markel is "nasty") or just plain ignores it.

Trump's brashness is a weakness as well as his secret weapon for getting around the oppressive MSM/Dem/academia/entertainment business narrative.

Most likely. It is at least possible that a Bernie write-in could siphon some votes.

Best case is that Biden wins the nomination, I think. No one has any enthusiasm for him, that I can see.

OTOH, I can't see any momentum building for any of the others either. Only time will tell.

361 It gets worse. Down heah in south MS, our schools are open in the summer to provide breakfast and lunch meals, free, to any student that drops by. Parents can eat too for a token amount. This has been going on for a few years. Sigh. Why, you might ask, are we giving food stamps AND free school meals?

It's a mystery. But now they want to send food trucks around to any student household to provide free meals. Oh yeah. That's the ticket to independence, right there.
Posted by: GnuBreed at June 20, 2019 08:05 AM (Z4rgH)


We have that in Michigan too and I wondered about it. It started with free meals in the summer when school was not in session, but the EBT cards were supplying food money in the summer so it seemed redundant, but I was told it was because of the severe lack of parenting skills of these families. They don't know how to budget, cook, etc. they only know how to reproduce and get their nails done and purchase wigs.

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“It’s bullshit. We lost. Suck it up. I don’t like harvesting, but suck it up.”

“We got a problem here in Orange County. Instead of bitching and crying [about ballot harvesting], go do it yourself. It’s legal.” Mission Viejo’s Republican Mayor Greg Raths


Quote II

“It [Communism] is not new. It is, in fact, man's second oldest faith. Its promise was whispered in the first days of the Creation under the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil: "Ye shall be as gods." It is the great alternative faith of mankind. Like all great faiths, its force derives from a simple vision. Other ages have had great visions. They have always been different versions of the same vision: the vision of God and man's relationship to God. The Communist vision is the vision of Man without God.
It is the vision of man's mind displacing God as the creative intelligence of the world. It is the vision of man's liberated mind, by the sole force of its rational intelligence, redirecting man's destiny and reorganizing man's life and the world. It is the vision of man, once more the central figure of the Creation, not because God made man in his image, but because man's mind makes him the most intelligent of the animals. Copernicus and his successors displaced man as the central fact of the universe by proving that the earth was not the central star of the universe. Communism restores man to his sovereignty by the simple method of denying God.” Whittaker Chambers, Witness


Quote III

"I also want to thank, in particular, the federal protective service whose officers saved who knows how many people this morning by responding to the active shooter situation by neutralizing the shooter," "These guys are our heroes today. We owe them a debt of gratitude." Erin Nealy Cox, U.S. Attorney


Quote IV

"I was OK with being a drug addict. I was OK with that being my life. But I wasn't OK with having kids and letting that be part of my life." Amelia (Last name withheld)


Quote V

"True Conservatives"

They're diseased whores who used to suck off the right for money, and now they suck off the left. Either way, their only marketable skill is sucking people off. Ace


Quote VI

“What’s at stake here is not my future, or ours, or even our family’s. We will be fine,” Sullivan continued. “What is at stake are the values that underwrite the best traditions of higher education, the very same traditions that have sustained Harvard for nearly 400 years. In America, everyone is entitled to a defense, in America, everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty, and in America, everyone is entitled to due process of law under our Constitution.” Ronald Sullivan

So, the world's population is expected to stop growing by the end of the century.

For the first time in modern history, the world’s population is expected to virtually stop growing by the end of this century, due in large part to falling global fertility rates, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of new data from the United Nations.

By 2100, the world’s population is projected to reach approximately 10.9 billion, with annual growth of less than 0.1% – a steep decline from current levels. Between 1950 and today, the world’s population grew between 1% and 2% each year, with the number of people rising from 2.5 billion to more than 7.7 billion.

The ONT is always looking out for you. Tonight is no different. The ten most dangerous countries in the world. Our advice, stay away at vacation time.

The ongoing domestic and international conflict category includes deaths from organized conflict and relations with neighboring countries. The societal safety and security category includes political instability, violent crime, and the incarcerated population. The militarization category includes access to weapons and weapons imports and exports.

In 2019, overall global peacefulness increased for the first time in five years, but the world is still less peaceful than it was 10 years ago, the report says. This year, Afghanistan replaced Syria as the least peaceful country in the world.

I'm a parent, not a perfect parent. Mrs. Mis. Hum. raised three great children despite me. Guess I'm opinionated and think quite a few parents today are doing it wrong. Overprotective parenting is more than an annoyance; it's an evolutionary aberration.

Children have been raised a certain way for most of human history, but only in the last half-century has the approach to parenting drastically changed. Families have gone from having natural births, shared rooms, physical contact, and frequent breastfeeding to delivering by C-sections, sleeping in separate bedrooms, formula feeding, and emphasizing 'personal space' at home.

While these changes have improved mortality rates and infant health in many cases, they have also come at a cost to the mental and emotional development of children whose brains are wired for a different kind of upbringing than the one they're getting.

Any parent who walks their child with a kiddy leash at the mall ought to be ..........

The Parable of the Nazi Pizza.

Race is a valuable commodity. That’s a simple truth, in the advertising world as well as in Hollywood. And just as race is a valuable commodity, so is racism. In fact, I’d argue that racism sells even better than race. A person whose race is X will see an attractive actor of X in a commercial, and that person might—might—be tempted to purchase the product being advertised because the commercial pitchperson looks like them. It’s a decent advertising strategy, but by no means guaranteed to work. On the other hand, if the person whose race is X sees an online essay or article that attacks people who are X, it’s damn near certain that the person of X will get angry and make an outrage post in which the offending link is shared.

The awesome online power of race is nowhere stronger than in the world of opinion journalism. Nothing gets social media more riled up than opinion pieces about race. People love approvingly sharing posts that insult other races, and people love angrily sharing posts that insult their own race. Race gets hits. The problem is, our benevolent media overlords are supposedly working to cleanse racism from the internet. So, how do you fight racism while still benefiting from the ad-rate-setting clicks, likes, and shares that are generated by provocative pieces that deal in racial hatred?

I’ll answer that question with the Parable of the Nazi Pizza.

Attempting to recreate the movie "Stripes" is tonight's Genius Award Winner.

A drunk driver was arrested last week for driving a tank through the streets of Pajęczno, Poland.

The vehicle, a Soviet T-55 tank that's at least 60 years old, belonged to the Polish military. But on June 12 shortly before 10pm it looked like it was attacking residents, who quickly called police.

According to Polish newspaper Twoje Pajęczno, the unnamed driver, 49, was only responsible for putting the tank on and off its trailer. But the trailer broke and, when it was being repaired, he drunkenly decided to take the war machine out on a joyride.

By the time the cops arrived, he had parked the 40-ton machine, which was uninsured, on a main street and was standing nearby. Another man, believed to be his passenger, was also present.

It's not clear if the muddled motorist caused any permanent damage to Mickiewicza Street but he was arrested and, once he sobered up, questioned by police. He faces up to eight years in prison if charged with creating "direct danger of a catastrophe in land, water or air traffic," or two years for driving under the influence.

There is a sci-fi story about a small, heavy planet crustacean-like species that was laying siege to a human space station, but could not get in between the orbital defenses.

Faced with the prospect of a Human relieving fleet, the aliens devised a Trojan horse like plan. The station was known to be short of rations, so a full battalion of the aliens were packed into ration cans, in life suspense gel and in a human cargo hull that had been captured, they pretended to chase it into the orbital defenses where it was "rescued" by Human defenders.
The idea was that the starving humans would open the cans, be overwhelmed, and the planet would fall before the Human fleet arrived.

The last scene of the story was the Human crew saying, "food at last, we can survive" and "Yeah, I opened one can and the lobster attacked me, so now I just punch holes in the cans and drop them into boiling water. Want more drawn butter?"

And she asked me if I thought the makers of the game liked or hated Trump, ie did they do this to make him look dumb or are tehy fans of his and they made it as a way for people who like him to have some fun.

And I was pleased she asked that. That's a smaaaaht kid who is 10+ years away from being able to vote.

137 Missed the subtext of the "world population is stabilizing" - Africa's population is supposed to go from a billion today to 4.3 billion in 2100 - almost as much as Asia.

The five countries accounting for more than half the world's forecasted population growth are Nigeria, Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Angola, and Pakistan.

This is good, because all these countries are very well governed, and will doubtless become even better governed as their populations grow rapidly.

Open the borders - there will be a lot of new people wanting in!

188 "God made man in his image"

no man has seen God at any time ... God is Spirit.


Man was formed of the dust, and God breathed in his soul life. That is now natural man today. But God man Adam in his image. Then God told Adam (and Eve) "in the day you eat of it (that tree), you shalt surely die". So it makes sense to me, the part of Adam that died was the spirit ... he lost the holy spirit connection with God when he decided to disobey. He lived on as a body/soul natural man long after that.


The second Adam faced a free will choice as well, to obey his Father God (not my will but thine be done) ... or to accept "all the kingdoms of this world will I give thee" from Satan (god of this world). JC chose to obey, not let that cup pass from him, suffer and die and be raised to sit at the right hand of God.


Jesus obeyed ... but had any of the princes of this world known (that Christians would also receive holy spirit because JC had redeemed us from first Adam's sins) ... had they known, "they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory" (our risen brother, and high priest forever, JC)


That's a good story. Now we have holy spirit, the spirit of sonship. reconciled with God. We might do by nature the things in "the law", but we don't obey the law to get righteousness. In culture we do things which our belief in a higher power suggests, out of free will. We don't allow government to control us, and we fight any force (government or otherwise) that tries to force our nation/people into submission. The end.


Our sin nature is not the image of God. We can will to do good but fall short .. we still have free will, but a permanent sonship spirit, for Christians. hurray.

The funny thing about Booker is it's all an act. He used to be the sane guy, the measured guy who distanced himself from the crazies. But I guess he decided the base isn't into sane this year and deliberately dialed up the crazy.

Once you get that reputation, it stays with you. What you're watching is the self-destruction of a man's career.

226 Ask them: "How much does that cost in real money?"

Back in the 70's, the Canadian dollar and the US dollar was pretty much at par, and in Portland, stores would give you a mix of Canadian and American coins in change. Vending machines took Canadian coins.

Then the value of the Canadian dollar slipped, and every vending machine in the Pacific Northwest got modified to take only American coins.

The Democrats have a 44 - 25 pct voter registration advantage in Cali so they have a massive advantage in votes they can harvest.

Bottom line is the GOP will be completely wiped out as in there will be zero point zero Republicans in any office anywhere in California in roughly 3 election cycles with harvesting.


The GOP had a large disadvantage before the vote harvesting legislation and could rely on the general laziness of the Democrat block to give them wins in some counties but with harvesting, you don't even need to turn out the voter, you just collect "absentee" ballots.

That is how they flipped Orange County from majority GOP to completely turned over to the Dems.

Every GOP candidate had a lead after the polls closed and the real time votes had been counted, within a day and half the Democrats 'harvested' enough votes to win every seat.

The Mayor is typical GOPe oxygen thief and the reason the GOP is a non-entity in California.

The five countries accounting for more than half the world's forecasted population growth are Nigeria, Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Angola, and Pakistan.

This is good, because all these countries are very well governed, and will doubtless become even better governed as their populations grow rapidly.

The GOP is already effectively wiped out here. They hold no major statewide office, no mayorship in a major city. They don't have enough seats in the CA legislature to propose or impede legislation. And they've pretty much given up any pretense of being conservative - they're position as "Democrat lite".

There's no solution for CA but to let it burn. Once the state runs out of money, the wards of the state will leave and we might (might) get some sane politicians in office.

I had a French-Canadian guy working for me. I learned that during the Stanley Cup, it was more efficient to start the day by letting him describe the previous night's matches all at once, rather than make him provide the commentary in bits and pieces throughout the day.

301 Weather-ly speaking, Colorado's snowpack seems really late to bust loose, this after a late winter/early spring with record breaking snowfall. Last I saw, the Poudre river was up, but not even close to flood levels like I've seen in the past. Makes me wonder what will happen when actual summer temps hit.

May and June have been cooler than normal, and cloud cover over the Front Range means the snow melt is behind schedule.

You can actually still order $2 bills from the Mint in certain special sets, although you'll never see them in circulation. (just checked the Mint's collector page to be sure)

And surprisingly, the United States has *Never* minted a $2 coin. Through the 19th century there was a $2.50 coin called the Quarter Eagle which was a small gold coin. But never $2.00

kind of a surprising omission.

343 In the spring of 1985 a buddy and I drove through Canada to get to Alaska. I wanted to stop, hang out, enjoy Alberta, BC and Yukon. But my friend was in some kind of all-fire hurry to get to Kenai, like he wanted to break some kind of land speed record.

Nevertheless, I saw some truly spectacular things, most notably Aurora activity that left me breathless. I remember stopping on the highway far west of Whitehorse just to watch the display.

I truly felt the magnitude of what I was experiencing. Miles away from civilization, almost alone, the sky splashed with stars, the ribbons of light dancing all over the sky. No vehicle traffic. I think one truck passed while we leaned against the hood of the truck watching the sky.

Fuck. That was so cool.

Which was, of course, the way it was.
I once stopped in the main department store in Leningrad. (Yes, it was Leningrad then)
The main display which faced on to the street was about 40 feet by 6 feet and right there, in the center, was 3 cans of peaches. Cling peaches.

That was the display. The peaches.

And they were out of them.

397 The spot in North Africa that has the potential to be flooded is known as the Qattara Depression - deepest point, 436 feet below sea level. Because it is mostly salt beds and other very dry dusty materials, heavy vehicles attempting to go through it would quickly see their air filters clog up, and without heavy filters, engines would seize up. So, tactics at the battles of El Alamein were guided by the needs of both armies to go to great lengths to avoid going through the Qattara.

406 The interesting thing is that to flood the Qattara, all that would be needed would be for a canal to be cut, then it would fill itself. The micro-climate created by the existence of a new arm of the sea could drastically change the rainfall amounts, and thus the habitability, of much of Egypt and the Sinai. And nothing would be lost, since the Qattara is so harsh there is only one small human settlement in the entire thing.

I haven't had a single position experience with a female that isn't a family member with the last, maybe, 5 years?? My new controller was a woman, and I loved working with her. She left - she claims forced out by the Board. My old best friend ghosted me for two and a half years and only started talking again in April. My grandma and aunts adore mde and I love them but they're IINNNSAAAAANEEEEE. My last two exes before this one gave the same varioation of an "its not you its me" to avoid telling me the truth. And that's another thing I'm really fed up with, is being lied to, even for supposedly noble reasons. And boy oh boy are women great liars and they can do it to your face with a smile.

In the winter the motto was party because it's winter. Funny thing about the two winters I spent in Alaska was that they were unusually warm and wet.

And before you say, "Let her face the consequences," the consequences in this case would be getting run over by a pickup truck (almost happened twice) or getting kidnapped (she's a nightmare to try to find in a library). We were basically saving her from being a Darwin Award recipient for two years by using that leash. She kind of gets the danger now, but not enough that I let her cross the street by herself.

"Please don't run into traffic like that!" (I grab her squirmy little hand)

463 Calgary is probably ultra liberal and Trudeau supporters. Canada is like the US...no such things as red/blue provinces it's blue cities and red counties (or whatever the version of that color scheme is, I think blue = conservative right?).

Calgary is very much divided. You have a lot of oilpatch people, who are not liberal, and then you have a mess of government drones and Turd Wurld immigrants, who very much are.

Edmonton (aka Redmonton) is much more uniformly Liberal. Or socialist, as if it made a difference.

And rural Alberta is die-hard conservative.

Because there was nothing on the shelves in stores, so if you saw a line it was probably leading to the trunk of some car where a guy was selling black market toilet paper.

506 Broseidon,

I mentioned this briefly the other day, but my sons have been having the same problems. Bot are good men, both have good jobs. Neither does drugs, nor inks much (not even close to what I do). Younger son is not religious, but has a very solid moral code. Elder son is a deacon in his small Christian church.

And yet, neither can find the right woman. Neither could be called "playas," but both are very functional in society. To put it bluntly, any woman would lucky to be with them. And yet (probably a good thing) my sons have rejected a lot of young women who are, to put it bluntly, damaged.

This really is not a pep talk, Broseidon. It's more of a "You're not alone" thing.

Probably not very helpful. Sorry, man.

That's what I did. The young ladies at my office were all "I WANT THAT!" but I doubt they'd be able to appreciate it the way I did, or cherish my husband the way I did. The time it took to find him was what made it so great. He felt the same way.
Now some people would look at it from the other perspective "woe is me, now I'm too old to have kids" or any one of dozens of negative thoughts.
Some people invite misery into their lives and cling to it. They simply cannot do gratitude.

I had a tough childhood, blah blah blah, so for quite a while I kept looking for someone to fill the gaping sucking psychological wounds in me - I was probably an emotional vampire and didn't realize it. I would end up sabotaging any relationship with my issues.

There is federal law for the bankruptcy of cities/municipalities, but nothing for states. It's an unknown.

There is a reason for it, and that's the dual sovereignty notion, that states are still semi-sovereign entities.

After '08 there was a lot of talk about what to do if a state defaulted and should there be some federal law about it.

My adult sons (nearly the same age as Bro) have had very similar problems regarding women.

Both of my sons are hardworking. Both are ridiculously intelligent and, frankly, funny as hell. Both are fully functional in society. Neither drinks much, nor do drugs. They do not have tattoos. they are well-groomed. They both own their own cars. They are paying back their student loans.

In short, both of my sons are good husband material.

And yet, again and again, they are disappointed by the young women they become acquainted with. Frankly I find it bizarre.

Oh gotta differ on at least that data point, I can tell you about a relative (by marriage) who's been a good friend for at least 30 years, who not too long ago stole $97,000 from my wife and I and the rest of the family, and we're still letting him go along on the promise he can get it back, which frankly I never believed. (it was in a joint account that he drained to cover his own debts without telling anyone he did it)(and no matter what we do, the money's gone)

so that shit happens. I think of Eleanor of Aquitaine in "Lion in Winter" when she tells Henry, "Lost your life's work? I can take defeats like yours and laugh, I've done it." To thine own self be true, and everything else is easy come, easy go. I've made large sums of money at times through no special skill of my own - I've lost large sums of money at times through no fault of my own. I've had friends and family who I cared deeply about fade out of my life - I've watched friends and family who I loved placed under the dirt. I've been threatened, for real - I have threatened, for real. I've been spindled, folded, and mutilated, and put back together to try it all over again.

To thine own self be true, and as to the rest, you're not in charge of what happens, you're just along for the ride. Try to laugh about it as much as you can, cuz in the end that's the only thing that can really help you get through it all.

Posted by: Puddleglum at June 20, 2019 12:40 AM (WNAuL)


I think it's both easier and tougher for young guys today, depending on who you are. For the 20% most attractive, these are the good old days. They can use Tinder to sleep with women as often as they care to.

What economists call "friction" costs are really low. Your dating pool used to be relatively small - people you met at school, church, at work. But now they're just an app away. You don't have to spend any time actually meeting people. You don't have to spend any time trying to get to know a girl. If she doesn't put out, just "next" her. There's always another.

For the rest of the guys it's tough. In the old days we did assortive mating - female fives would date and marry male fives. But we don't do that any more. Because the matching costs are so low, the top guys get the lion's share of female attention and the rest get little or none.

It doesn't really work out for women, either. When all the women are competing for one guy in five their bargaining power is zilch.

I'm glad my dating years ended in the last century.

640 In the old days we did assortive mating - female fives would date and marry male fives.

Two things: women gets all sorts of social reinforcement now for thinking very highly of themselves. The fives think that they are all eights.

In any case, a limited dating pool would cause reality to intrude pretty quickly. Now, they can maintain the illusion that one of the host of alpha males online will eventually pay attention to them.

So they get to be lonely, depressed, and blaming men for the state that they are in.

Cologne comes from eau de Cologne, which is to say water from Cologne, but it's really Echt Kölnisch Wasser. It's called 4711 because it's from 4711 Some Street in Köln.

Köln is funny because it's the Krautish name for the town and usually the Krautish or the Anglish or the Saxish is the old form, but Köln (once Cöllen) got its name from being a Roman colony, Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium.

664 So, I had me a "fun" day. That T-storm last night dropped about two inches of rain on my place. The eavestroughs on the house channel water into an underground cistern smack up against the west wall of the foundation.

Now I have (well, had) an electric submersible pump in that cistern, with a float switch; to kick it on if the level in the cistern gets too high, namely about 2 feet below the rim of the access trunk. Too full, and it makes water seep through cracks in the foundation wall, and I get water in the basement. Not a flood, just damp floors.

So, last night, I saw water seeping in. Today, i went and checked on the pump. It would not run. Tested the outlet. It was live. I went and got my little made-in-China 2" gasoline pump. Filled it with fuel, hooked up the suction and discharge lines, and it started first pull on the cord. Woo-Hoo! But it would not prime. Several efforts at priming failed, but I finally noticed that it was sucking in air from some place. Narrowed it down to the hammer union connecting the suction hose to the pump. Took that off, lubed the threads and coated the "O" ring with pipe dope, and put it back together. Bingo! It primed right up, and ran for about half hour, and sucked the cistern down to about 3 feet of water depth, where the suction hose began sucking wind. Good enough.

I shut the fuel valve on the pump, and ran it until its little carbatooter was dry, and brought it back into the shop, and siphoned out the unused fuel. Put a few drops of fuel stabilizer in the tank, for good measure. So it will be ready when I next need it.

I pulled the electric pump out of the cistern, and tore it down. Motor was burned out; some of the wire windings melted. I spent several hours salvaging the copper wire out of the field coils. It was there was to do.

I think I might try rigging an old washing machine pump, driven by a surface-mounted motor through a long, long shaft. Those submersible pumps seem to have a short life span...

I have a crank pump for dispensing solvent from a barrel. But its old, and does not prime well. A centrifugal pump from a washer, down in the hole, driven by a long shaft from a high-and-dry motor sounds like an answer for me. And can be controlled by the existing float switch.

Take the pump cylinder from a manual sink or well pump, and build around it a pump jack scale model.

It will look like your own personal oil field pump jack but in 1 10th scale.

691 Just woke-up after about six hours of sleep and I feel much better than I have all week. Getting sleep is good.

I cannot work as hard as I used to and that throws me for a loop, still.

...but I am grateful to God for all that I have, all those who surround me and I continue to Count my Blessings every day.

I was not in the situation I find myself in when I started the prayer list, but even then, I knew that it was a good thing to comfort others.

O Divine Master, grant that I might not seek to be consoled as to console. -St. Francis

That is pure Logos. Ethos and pathos are fine, but the former is Human and the latter is pathetic. ...literally.

As I say so often... "One-Foot-In-Front-Of-The-Other" and allow the day to pass, as God willed it. I thought I knew that, but it becomes ever-evident with each passing day and with the wisdom garnered from experience.

Never miss an opportunity to Love.

693 Actually, there is a good reason for me to stick with a centrifugal pump. I often use the cistern water to feed my pressure washer for washing the vehicles. Rain water is soft; doesn't leave spots like my very hard well water does. And the pressure washer would not like the output of a plunger pump.

And the nice thing about the centrifugal: if the outlet hose is blocked, it just keeps on churning away, no problem.

It's around 24 different satellites for DoD, NASA, various universities, and a solar sail experiment for the Planetary Society. It's also a demonstration for the Air Force that they have capability to put different satellites into different orbits on one flight. While it isn't the heaviest payload they have launched, SpaceX has said that it will be their most complex and ambitious mission to date.

713 I found something interesting that Vox Day talked about on one of his streams. He was working-out a Male Socio-Sexual Hierarchy and it is intriguing, to say the least.

The goal of this Is NOT to figure out where you stand in the hierarchy, (even though men will, because we just do) but to Recognize it in others if you are looking to avoid problems; especially if you are the one doing the hiring, firing and management of employees.

He has other videos where he goes into detail about each sect, but this one is comprehensive and very informative. It is Alphas, Bravos, Deltas, Gammas Sigmas and Omegas.

ABC says it was an MQ-9 Reaper, which is the one that replaced the Predator we saw so much of in A-stan. Bigger, more expensive, a bit less loiter time, but can carry a whole lot more ordinance. Wikipedia says they're about $16m apiece.

Quick update on the security light from hell The electric company painted over the globe...just in time for a friend of the owner to arrive and inform them that the light is on the wrong pole.

795 Poison ivy? Technu is good. But Dawn dish detergent and a coarse washcloth will take care of it, whenever you've been exposed. And wash your clothing. Urushiol oil lasts for over a year, and you could keep re-exposing yourself.

Pakistan Accidentally Turns On Cat Filter During Livestream Hearing, Turning Government Officials Into Kitty-Cats

Well, it's at least good to know that David French and Ben Shapiro will always be welcome on leftist social media sites, because they have proven they are ineffectual conservatives but very effective liberals.

47 Mostly those twitter notices regarding foreign laws are just "for your information" and twitter doesn't seek to enforce them. Just a warning, "hey don't go to Pakistan, steve crowder." No particular need to get worked up about them. Twitter blows, but this isn't really one of the reasons.

New: Now, word of a mysterious third 'scope memo' for Robert Mueller.

The 448-page Mueller report has been public for two months, so it might seem strange that the Justice Department's original instructions to special counsel Robert Mueller, outlining what he was assigned to investigate, are still a secret. But they are. And now, it turns out those instructions were more extensive than previously known. Until now, it was widely understood that there had been two "scope memos" from the DOJ to Mueller. Now, it turns out there was a third, as well.

INVESTIGATE

Remaining steps:
INVESTIGATION occurs, and
REFERRALS are made to the DOJ, which in turn
INVESTIGATES, and either does or does not charge.

You can not have three valid memos telling you what the scope is. Either there is a misinterpretation, or these people are complete idiots. That is like three wills --only one can be valid.

In my experience, most people who hate dogs were bitten as young children. My dad hated cats, so I never had them growing up. Sometimes I'd go to a friend's house who had one, and I thought they were pretty cool. I asked my dad why he disliked them, and all he ever said was, "I got no use for them."

152 You can not have three valid memos telling you what the scope is. Either there is a misinterpretation, or these people are complete idiots. That is like three wills --only one can be valid. You can not tell people "this is the scope" and "that is the scope". It is like keeping two sets of books. They should just invert the DOJ and put bars on the windows and lock the doors and turn it into a prison.

They narrowed the scope with each iteration -

1st scope memo was to investigate if foreigners colluded in the election.

2nd scope memo was to investigate Team Trump - RUSSIA collusion.

3rd scope memo was to investigate the specific individuals by name that Obama Administration framed for conspiring with RUSSIANS to tamper with the election.

They had to lead Mueller like a horse to water find the evidence they planted.

My parents used to do that - until one time when they were in Europe, I as their oldest child got the phone call from the youngest siblings still living at Mom & Dad's. The orange tabby, who went out every night, was hiding under the garage sink, foaming at the mouth.

Turns out he had feline AIDS, caused by being outside fighting with other cats.

Brought him to the vet; he was so bad off they recommended he be put to sleep. I had to give the ok.

That when I think the younger siblings' deep hatred of me started festering.

Oddly enough I've believed for a while - and said right here - that the Democrat plan is to never let the country watch a debate again without their own "augmentation". In other words, a "live factcheck", and you know what that means...

I didn't think they would unveil it in 2016. I thought it would be 2020. This was before Trump was even a thing.

Trump is smart enough to just do it himself. Except he'll be telling the truth. It was coming for us anyway. Now when they finally do it, it will look like they are just copying Trump. Sad!

217 207 Speaking of coyotes, Mr. E and I were about 1/4 mile inside the gate at deer lease and saw a german shepherd size coyote run across the road, closely followed by 2 big does. We still can't believe that one. Later did not see a pair of roadrunners in their customary haunt and Mrs. E says she 'hopes the coyote hasn't eaten them'. I asked 'you do know that coyotes never catch roadrunners'.

He had trouble walking back off the cuff remarks about the Jews "inventing " God as he must have figured out that the Acton Institute is a religious institution supporting liberty.


I think I did understand, fully and finally, the term cuck tonight, as he urged gentle persuasion and using the left's language and viewpoints as he artfully turns them conservative.

There are TWO things going on with both.

Both sights work off of the idea that you post, and friends, or those who follow you, will see what you post.

With Conservatives, its not happening. Shadow banning is when what you post, just no longer gets shown to friends or those who follow you. I am hit with this right now.


But they are also outright banning Conservative or 'Right wing nationalists', and just plain banning their accounts, for no real cause, except for a VERY few complaints from those on the other end of the political spectrum.

But they are also outright banning Conservative or 'Right wing

except for a VERY few complaints from those on the other end of the
political spectrum.

It's less about how many complaints, then about who is complaining, and how. Most of the tech giants are leaning on third parties to deliver blacklist criteria - generally lefty thinktanks and SPLC type groups. They think this helps insulate them from accusations of editorial control. Then the same groups go and hire people to sit around reporting shit all day long worded precisely to the criteria they themselves created. The combination of tailored complaint with trusted source means rapid banhammering.
On the ticket topic, I find it interesting that Google went to reserved domain stuff for one, and only one, set of names - IIRC, it's Beta/Buttplug. Combined with their bending the advertising rules for O'rourke, and only for him, makes you go hmmmm...

In Venezuela, AKA Future America, People Are Digging Up Bodies to Mine Them for... Riches

The developmentally challenged Ocasio-Cortez will call this Crade-to-Grave Recycling.

Even the dead aren’t safe in Maracaibo, a sweltering, suffering city in Venezuela.

Thieves have broken into some of the vaults and coffins in El Cuadrado cemetery since late last year, stealing ornaments and sometimes items from corpses as the country sinks to new depths of deprivation.

"Starting eight months ago, they even took the gold teeth of the dead," said Jose Antonio Ferrer, who is in charge of the cemetery, where a prominent doctor, a university director and other local luminaries are buried.

...

Ferrer, the man in charge of El Cuadrado cemetery, took over the job from his father after he died, His father, in turn, had inherited the post from his father. The cemetery was founded nearly two centuries ago.

Daily burials used to happen until late afternoon, Ferrer said. But the cemetery now has tightened up on security, only holding burials until noon to deter grave robbers.

Also interesting that he likely spent much more time trying to
