21 Pickled herring's bones become soft, almost gelatinous, and should pull apart very easily.

I'm doubting these skeletons' jaw muscles and commitment to core exercise.

52 It was a fish this time, that summer when the motes of dust floated in the beam of light that formed an oblong of white on the dull dead wood floor and the gnats darned up and down in the still hot air. The fish, the dessicated husk of a being that could have gone from one end of the globe to the other underwater if only it had had the time to do so and the will and the ability to evade sharks, other fish, but mostly time, which would find it dead and then grasped between the teeth of two men, contestants, allies in hunger, enemies in their acquisitiveness, mutely struggling to obtain, capture, take, win the scaly dead dry prize of their nutritional ambitions...

68 James Ensor was Belgian. He seems to have reached the peak of his career around the WWI/interWar period. I cannot ID the red outfit, but the one on the right seems to have the same hat as the some of the German military elite, like General August Mackensen. Because of this, I'm going to say that the one in red may represent German politicians, or some group from the French/British side. The pickled herring may be Belgium? Death on both sides fighting over a meal? The way they are fighting is interesting too. They aren't using their hands. They grip the fish in their teeth and try to pull it away from the other, like wolves. I can almost hear the snarling.

94 There may well be some point to including this crap as art but, if so, it escapes me. Judging by this painting and some other James Ensor works I saw, he wasted a rewarding career as a ditch digger.

The fish, the dessicated husk of a being that could have gone from one end of the globe to the other underwater if only it had had the time to do so and the will and the ability to evade sharks, other fish, but mostly time, which would find it dead and then grasped between the teeth of two men, contestants, allies in hunger, enemies in their acquisitiveness, mutely struggling to obtain, capture, take, win the scaly dead dry prize of their nutritional ambitions...

208 They Might Be Giants song, "Meet James Ensor," was the first I ever heard of this guy.

Anyhoo, his art is definitely more interesting that lots of folks. Better in theory than practice, I think.

210 Here is analysis of this 1891 painting from an art magazine:

"In this particular painting, Skeletons Fighting Over A Pickled Herring (1891), Ensor is the herring, and he is being ripped apart by art critics after receiving negative responses to his work.

"In this particular painting, Skeletons Fighting Over a Pickled Herring (1891), Ensor is the herring, and he is being ripped apart by art critics after receiving negative responses to his work."

This analysis seems a bit suspect.

The painting dates from 1891. The skeleton on the left is France. The one on the right is Prussia. The herring is Alsace-Lorraine.

Posted by: Guy Smiley at June 02, 2020 10:00 AM (+7yf7)

213 The painting represents the two critics: Édouard Fétis and Max Sulberger. Their negative responses to Ensor's artwork drove him to portray them in multiple satirical paintings. In this particular work Ensor represents himself as a pickled herring being torn apart by their hateful criticism. The word herring in French, hareng-saur-close, if said with the proper pronunciation, apparently sounded like "art Ensor" or "Ensor's art."

306 Willowed like a herring:


Eh, look, Rush is staring the Grim Reaper in the face and like all people he wants his time on Earth to mean something.

"You get no do-overs." as he likes to say.

Rush strikes me as a guy who knows himself very well. He knows his strengths. He knows his weaknesses.

One of his strengths is that he is a master persuader.

And I believe, one of his core beliefs is that, as a Conservative that the Law and the US Constitution are for all men and women. That following its guidelines will lead to a a happy and prosperous nation filled with happy prosperous people regardless of race or religion, etc.

However, you've got to jump into the pool and swim. If you stand outside US society and its opportunities, either through contempt or fear or, if you're held outside by alligence to the Democrat Party,

you have no way to benefit.

That doesn't mean you'll have an easy life. It just means the opportunities are there for everyone.

That positive message is what Rush was trying to convey to the Breakfast Club's audience.

That the US is for you. The Constitution was built ultimately for everyone.

And that every life has hard knocks but it's not necessarily a conspiracy against you cuz you're Black or Black people in general.

It was noble effort.

And anyone of TBC's listeners who had an open mind might be persuaded.

This wasn't meant to be a knock down, drag out, ideological fight.

If so, Rush would've gone straight after "the Magic Words" which CtG kept evoking and never defining..

ie.

What exactly is "White Privilege" defined concretely? What is "White Supremacy" defined concretely?
How does it affect you directly?
Where are the houses, the colleges, the jobs, the government positions which no Black person can access?
Etc.

These words are "Magic Signifiers" meant to be purposefully vague so that like "blank slate" Oblabla, they can mean anything to anyone,

and therefore can be used as a weapon to shutdown discussion as CtG did time after time.

As a sidenote: the Yi Girl seemed like the smartest and most open to discussion, if not to persuasion.

I liked Rush's effort.

It was positive.

359 The painting represents the two critics: douard Ftis and Max Sulberger. Their negative responses to Ensor's artwork drove him to portray them in multiple satirical paintings. In this particular work Ensor represents himself as a pickled herring being torn apart by their hateful criticism. The word herring in French, hareng-saur-close, if said with the proper pronunciation, apparently sounded like "art Ensor" or "Ensor's art."
Posted by: Anonosaurus Wrecks, Tyrannosaur Wrangler at June 02, 2020 10:01 AM (+y/Ru)


Obviously this has been discussed a million times over, and I'm not going to dwell on it, but art criticism has been detrimental to human artists for eons. Probably forever.

The elitist attitude has presumably never not been present, and those who see it as a legitimate way to gatekeep art, will always defend their right to put some artists on the outside and leave them there.

Ensor seems to have been particularly damaged (emotionally and presumably financially) by criticism.

Now, people don't have to like his stuff, but frankly I'd rather hang an Ensor painting in my home than the endless bland and boring fruit bowls, portraits, and landscrapes that are considered masterpieces by all the right people.

There's a sort of unspoken rule, which I have never heard formulated or mentioned: you don't joke about the patient. I mean some people probably do, but I don't think it would go over very well at all where I am. And with kids I can't imagine it. But outside of that......

Ensor seems to have been particularly damaged (emotionally and presumably financially) by criticism.

Now, people don't have to like his stuff, but frankly I'd rather hang an Ensor painting in my home than the endless bland and boring fruit bowls, portraits, and landscrapes that are considered masterpieces by all the right people.

400 So the DC Park Police did not use tear gas to disperse the crowd last night, they used smoke and they did not know that Trump was going to walk to the Church.

They dispersed the crowd because they were being pelted with water bottles and vandals were going after a structure they vandalized/burned the night before.

So much for the media narrative because you know they will ask why Trump had innocent protestors shot and killed last night for a photo op and the new press secretary will rip them a new one.

427 423 This really is an amazing bit of work. A gentleman took film that was made during the Battle of the Somme. He went to France and found the places in the films and then did his own video. Then, as much as possible, he synced up the two videos. Like looking through a window in time. Seeing ghosts.

I really like the increased interest over the past couple of years for WWI.

It's all because of the centennial, of course, and won't last, but it's nice to see WWI entering the popular consciousness again for even a short time.

The Morning Report - 6/2/20

bumknees.jpg

Good morning, kids. Tuesday and another grim milestone of yet another day of America held hostage.

As the seventh straight night of violent insurrection engulfs America's cities, or more accurately what have rapidly devolved into Democrat-Leftist separatist city-states, there can be no doubt at all that the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis cop is being used as a pretext to foment a political terror campaign that threatens to destabilize the nation. Ironically, the justifiable anger at the killing of Floyd is one of the few things shared across a broad spectrum of the political and geographic landscape. Yet it is the constant, decades-long drumbeat of anti-American propaganda by the Democrat-Media-Academia complex that condemns the nation, its culture and heritage for the very crimes against humanity it alone is guilty of. All one has to do is take a cursory look at the words of that movement's leaders and luminaries and the absolute truth of my statement jumps out at you.

It's the same old story; divide and conquer. Forget the fact that we have had blacks elected in virtually every city, town and state all the way up to president of the United States, and yet the toxic bromide of "white supremacy" and "white privilege" is ever pervasive. I consider Rush Limbaugh a national treasure, but for him to waste his time and energy - which due to his cancer he can ill afford to expend - on three dolts that have the collective IQ of a used toothbrush in trying to get them to open their eyes was just head scratching to me. Yeah, I suppose it's a good PR move and Rush also is genuinely trying to reach out and find common ground, so that is commendable. But the attitude of those he sat down with was not one of trying to find common ground so much as it was them demanding unconditional surrender from Limbaugh, and for him to confess and beg forgiveness. But I digress.

The attitude of the Breakfast Clubbers comes from the hideous propaganda of Leftists like the execrable Mayor of Seattle Jenny Durkan. Ironically, in her disgusting words blaming "white men" for the violence, she's not entirely wrong. Blacks and other minorities have been put upon for generations by white Americans - historically, specifically and exclusively as a matter of policy and political expediency by the Democrat Party and the American Leftist Movement. Period, full stop. Charlamagne tha Gd and his other two pals maybe don't see it, but after nearly four years of the Trump presidency, I'd bet others do. And that is what had the Democrats scared out of their minds up until the phony pandemic lockdowns. Like everything else you are being shown in the media, I'd wager most American Blacks are fed up with having their neighborhoods burned to the ground every so often so that Democrats have yet another cudgel with which to tear at the fabric of society in their constant bid for power.

In 1865, the Democrat Party formed the KKK, officially known as "the armed militant wing of the Democrat Party" in order to thwart the efforts of reconstruction and integration of former slaves into American society as full citizens. What they could not accomplish by outright physical murder, they achieved through the subversion of the Constitution via Jim Crow laws and a corrupt judiciary (sound familiar?). Here we are 155 years later and Antifa/BLM is doing the exact same thing, aided and abetted by their allies in Congress and some even in the courts. There's no way to prove that the Democrat Party itself formed Antifa, but for now they do share the same goal; attainment of absolute power and control. Once that happens though, all bets are off and I don't think the Dems really understand the nature of who they are in bed with.

The mayhem and carnage in the streets, as the saying goes does not play well in Peoria (whatever is actually going on in the streets of Peoria notwithstanding). The election season of 2020 is shaping up more and more to be like a repeat of 1968. The insurrection, coupled with Biden's scandals and loss of cognitive function, along with anger over the misery imposed on us mostly by Democrats with the quarantines leads me to believe that Trump will win re-election. If G-d forbid he loses then the nation is lost right then and there. But if he wins, considering everything they have tried and spectacularly failed at to destroy Donald Trump, what more can the Democrat Party and American Leftist movement do? Yes, I am well aware of what I'm hinting at. But call me a cockeyed optimist, I think the legacy of this President will last well beyond his (please G-d) eight years in office.

It is obvious that America has passed a point of no return, insofar as we cannot go on as before. I do not think there can be a national reconciliation because we no longer have two sides that, despite massive differences, share a common heritage. At least one has renounced and repudiated that heritage in no uncertain terms. We either will split apart or it's winner take all, with all the recriminations that both those options bring. The Left is evil, and as Momma Sefton wisely said to her dying day "evil never rests." But I think that what we are seeing, at least in this phase of our political history is the equivalent of the Tet Offensive. They are about to become a spent force, but is there an equivalent of the duplicitous Walter Cronkite to convince us that it is we who have lost the war? I don't think so. In spite of everything, this is still the age of miracles and wonders - the age of Trump.

22 Morning Horde! I did a thing! Many moons ago some of you were lamenting that millennials today don't give a damn about facts, just memes and pictures. That got me wondering if it were possible to transform my grad school research into memes and pictures.

So that's what I did. With a powerful assist from JJ's links over the years, I put together what I call Liberal Detox, a rolling compendium of facts and history that disprove all liberal nonsense of specific topics. (And compiled in a hopefully semi-coherent semi-humorous way.) So far I have complete Global Warming, the 2nd Amendment and Racism. If anyone's interested, the website is www.theliberaldetox.com

Just click on a red button at the top to get to the Detox and Sources. Feel free to save and share! (Hopefully they can help if you're ever in an argument with friends or family.)

And thanks again JJ for providing an ever growing database of sources.

26 Some more info on the Buffalo incident from the local news:

Two police officers were run down and two people suffered gunshot wounds over night. In a staggering coincidence, the two people who suffered gun shot wounds were in the car that ran down the two officers (one Buffalo PD, one NY State Trooper). A third person is in custody.

The reports aren't clear about when the gunshot wounds were suffered, whether before, during or after the vehicle incident. However, there was a massive police cordon and some gun play following the vehicle attack.

Both officers are in stable condition.

The Confederate statue in Old Town Alexandria was removed this morning. The statue belongs to the Daughters of the Confederacy, but the land that it sat on belongs to the City of Alexandria. A bill Northam signed enables the city to remove the statue.
"We feel that the design review committee has come up with a replacement statue that more accurately represents the modern spirit of the city and its leadership," a source said.

I suppose it's a good PR move and Rush also is genuinely trying to

attitude of those he sat down with was not one of trying to find common
ground so much as it was them demanding unconditional surrender from
Limbaugh, and for him to confess and beg forgiveness. But I digress.

Think about it.

It will make the lives of all blacks worse.
But not a single Democrat that ran Minneapolis will suffer
A few cops may suffer, but the police will be given more powers
The system that allowed the cop to avoid earlier correction, the police, their union, the DAs, none of that will change

That article on HCQ + Az was eye opening. What is it about these
guys that they think they can spout off about how their data shows this

Think about it.

It will make the lives of all blacks worse.
But not a single Democrat that ran Minneapolis will suffer
A few cops may suffer, but the police will be given more powers
The system that allowed the cop to avoid earlier correction, the police, their union, the DAs, none of that will change
And on and on-- not one thing they claim they want to change will get better

I have to disagree, JJ. It is painfully obviously now that Antifa has successfully integrated into the Democratic Party, which is a Marxist entity now. There no longer can be a peaceful transition of power with communists as the alternative.

As for cops taking the knee, it is beyond disgusting. It is an admission of defeat, an act of surrender. People had better learn to defend themselves as law enforcement in general and in Blue areas in particular is about to become the official face of the Marxist Left if this continues. Who needs Antifa if the Democrats can make the police become Antifa?

117 I'm sorry JJ but I just can't support your conclusion that you (and apparently the horde) thinks that this is going to lead to a huge landslide for PDT.

He's being BLAMED for this. The narrative memo went out to blame White Supremacists for the violence because we all know the effort that has been put on making PDT the face of white supremacists losers.

The inability for him to step up and fix this in one way or another is astonishing. He has not the charisma or the eloquence of a Reagan to sit behind the desk in the Oval Office in a televised address and speak calmly to unify the country. He's apparently been trigger-shy in deploying the NG and military (Due to Jared f'in Kushner apparently). I'm sorry but as someone who is looking at this objectively, Trump has not handled this well.

Biden is a disaster both ethically and cognitively. But he's 100% functional in being "anybody but Trump" which it seems will be just good enough for most people. It was good enough likely before COVID for a minority of "anybody but Hillary" voters to abandon him. Now after the riots, I'm guessing that he's going to be losing a lot more. Don't underestimate the power of the nullification vote.

This isn't 1968 - it's 2020. The country has fundamentally changed in 50 years. But go ahead, defenestrate me from the comments for warning about wearing glasses that are too rose-colored. I'll be sitting over here, cleaning my guns - waiting for the hordes that will inevitably come.

145 Have to put this here :

"Enforcing the law is not white supremacy. Insisting that everyone in the country follow the same rules isn't racism. In fact, it's the answer to racism. It's equality, equality under the law. It's the one thing we must defend. If we don't, it's over. Things fall apart. Weakness incites aggression. That's true in nature. It's every bit as true in human society. Our leaders are weak. Predators know it. That's why this is happening. If you let people spraypaint obscenities on city hall, pretty soon they are overturning cop cars. If you put up with that, they'll come right through the front door of the police precinct and burn it down. Next thing you know, they're beating people to death in shopping malls. And then what? What happens the next time the mob doesn't like something? What will the mob demand next? Let's hope we never find out because we're close. "

159 Rush's interview with the parrots highlights how steeped they are in the Leftist cliches.

White Supremacy, White Privilege, etc....

These are phrases invented by academics that get inculcated into them through Higher Ed. It's designed to shortcut thought and give them a catchphrase they can effortlessly repeat, and it's the Language of the Perpetual Victim. It's designed to keep the people that use it in the mindset of being inferior, kept down, victimized.

Leftist control of the language was used to make the idea of victimhood effortless and immediate. It is to perpetuates greivance.

Thinking they are becoming enlightened they embrace the concepts and ideas that are designed to keep them down and submissive to one political party.

And, without them understanding the irony, it beseeches the white leftists to save them from the 'White' social strictures.

During the first call on Sunday morning, Ald. Ray Lopez (15th) said
he asked Lightfoot directly what her plan was to protect the
neighborhoods after sealing off a downtown area devastated by looting,
vandalism and arsons on Saturday night.



Lopez said he "wasn't having it." He answered profanity with profanity.




"I told her, 'F -- k you. You don't know what's going on. You need to
come out from wherever you're hiding and see what's going on in the
neighborhoods.' I said, 'You need to check your f---ing attitude.'
That's not what this is about right now. That just underscores and
totally proves the fact that she had no plan for the neighborhoods."

200 After yesterday being exposed to batshit crazy on FB, I did a little internet researching.

Apparently 4chan/8chan/reddit own the libs on a regular basis and then the libs run out and go look at this thing that is happening!

So here is the deal. Anything where you say something that is repeating, xthing2 : Electric Boogaloo - is white supremacist. Because everything is white supremacist.

But apparently some enterprising college internet researchers have determined that - even though it has been a meme since before there were memes.

So, anyway, they think that there is a "Boogaloo Movement." In their tiny little minds, they think this movement exists to start a race war, though the evidence they have of this is scant - people who think that there may be open warfare on the streets and we should be prepared in case that happens are not "calling" for a Civil War, and that Civil War is not predicated on race. But whatever, there is gaslighting to be done.

I don't know if you saw this, but somewhere a couple off big guys with AR15s stood in front of a black owned business to protect it. This is supposed to be evidence that the Boogaloo movement is infiltrating the BLM movement, and then rioting/looting to make the the BLM movement, and all black people, look bad.

So, there it is. Your morning ration of batshit.

208 "116 That Breakfast Club interview with Rush was a waste of time. They are brainwashed with claims of White Privilege and White Supremacy and can't get past it. Maybe "White Supremacy" is the ability to think rationally and not racially."

It was foolish on Limbaugh's part, but he is the Old Guard-type who believes minorities who have been brainwashed and indoctrinated by communists for 60 years can become "natural conservatives." There are handfuls of people who can be reached in minority communities, but they don't listen to radical black radio disc jockeys. As painful as it is to make the transition to this tactic, whites need to be encouraged to vote as a unified bloc on purely defensive grounds and those minorities who want to live in a civil, just and free society can join with them. Delusions about what is taking place in the (former) United States should not be entertained by someone as intelligent as Limbaugh. The images of the last few days should disabuse white moderates and even the handful of liberals who have open minds, along with the shrinking minority among minorities who have seen what communism is and would be. The only alternative is physical partition.

Charlemagne the God types are a lost cause, and have been a lost cause for half a century-plus.

Plan to protest? Here are tips to reduce the risk of spreading #COVID19:

Wear a face covering
Wear eye protection to prevent injury
Stay hydrated
Use hand sanitizer
Don't yell; use signs & noise makers instead
Stick to a small group
Keep 6 feet from other groups

Just when it appeared that protesters and police officers would clash on the fourth straight night in Indianapolis, something unexpected happened: negotiation, and what appeared to be a moment of understanding.

IMPD Lt. Andrew Rolinson agreed to walk with the protesters. For just one block.

IMPD Sgt. Vince Stewart joined in. Other protesters hugged officers.

But it quickly became apparent that not everyone was happy with the result. While most of the protesters cheered, some others grumbled and shouted. Shortly after,Indy10 Black Lives Matter put out a tweet that said:

"Making this real clear. We don't shake hands with the enemy."

As my wife grabs her keys to head out the door I ask her where "Susan" is. Not far from the Plaza (Kansas City) my wife tells me. I tell wifey not to leave without me and grab my Glock 17 and go with her. Normally I carry a little .380 but not this time.

Anyway, fortunately Susan is a few blocks from where the all the fun is. We see cop cars and wagons roll past sirens blaring on several occasions and helicopters overhead but nothing is happening where we're at. We get Susan and GTFO. Interesting times indeed.

So this kind of thing is the status quo in cities like Chicago.

274 ".... That's true in nature. It's every bit as true in human society. Our
leaders are weak. Predators know it. That's why this is happening."

Nature has "mimics" (Viceroy butterfly mimics Monarch, doesn't get eaten). Dem politicians give lip service to oath of office and protection of law and order, dispensed equally. They are only mimicking public servants ... they are with the (communist) uprising.


They are not "weak" so much as they are united with the terrorists. The Trayvon/Brown PsyOps were run right out of the White House. Locals were not bringing charges against Zimmerman, Holder intervened. Holder was taking control of local PDs. That is not weakness.


A step above the black racists are ?? Soros types, maybe China, all the Dem cartels, DC and globalist. imo a strong majority are still like Floyd's son (I think it was his son) that gave the speech "what are you people doing, destroying our neighborhoods?" Pence was weak ... Trump has a chance to be strong ... fed intervention is risky ... encouraging governors to be stronger is good ... tick tock.

276 America took a decidedly bad turn when we let Government pretend they could deliver 'equality of outcome' instead of equality before the law. 1967 was the pivot point when the expectations raised by LBJs Great Society nonsense hit the bricks. 108 Race Riots nationwide - most of them in the Northeast and Upper Midwest. A couple of outliers in the South and West Coast. This started the exodus of Yankees to the south and west. This also embedded the idea that Blacks are incapable of agency and are never responsible for anything they do. Here we are.

Plan to protest? Here are tips to reduce the risk of spreading #COVID19:



Wear a face covering

Wear eye protection to prevent injury

Stay hydrated

Use hand sanitizer

Don't yell; use signs noise makers instead

Stick to a small group

Keep 6 feet from other groups

There was a NYT profile of Valerie Jarrett, glowing as one would expect. One of the things they highlighted was her command of the situation as the Ferguson riots happened. They described how she had daily calls, constant contact with city and state leadership advising them how to handle the situation as it unfolded. And she did this all from Nantucket (while the Obama's vacationed) like a boss!

The reason why city leaders in Ferguson, Maryland and NYC stepped back when the #BLM riots started was because the Obama WH - Valerie Jarrett - told them to.

Can't see it, can't be proved, can't be disproved. Vague and undefined except that any person who does not parrot the ideology that some amorphous, pervasive "racism" somehow drives all of society to the detriment of black people becomes "part of the problem."
______________

If racism in this country was really "systemic," then there would be many actual accounts of it.

And yet, all we've seen for years now are fabricated stories. Trayvon Martin -- an innocent little boy shot in the back by a raaaaaacist "white hispanic" for wearing a hoodie while black. Total media-manufactured bullshit.

Jussie Smollett, black actor attacked and beaten in Chicago by MAGA-hat wearing "white supremacists." Total manufactured bullshit.

Crystal Mangum, poor black stripper gang-raped and savaged and made fun of at a Duke men's lacrosse house party. Total manufactured bullshit.

And how many fake incidents of "nooses" and "racist grafitti" have we had on college campuses, only to learn later that some black or other minority leftist was responsible, and the excuse is always that they were trying to "bring attention to" or "start a dialogue about" the rampant racism all around them -- the racism that is so ubiquitous that they had to fabricate a fake racist incident because they couldn't find a real one anywhere?

There is no "systemic" racism in this country. Not anymore. It's all bullshit.

This is not the time for a supposedly free people to beg the Federal

345 22 Morning Horde! I did a thing! Many moons ago some of you were lamenting that millennials today don't give a damn about facts, just memes and pictures. That got me wondering if it were possible to transform my grad school research into memes and pictures.

So that's what I did. With a powerful assist from JJ's links over the years, I put together what I call Liberal Detox, a rolling compendium of facts and history that disprove all liberal nonsense of specific topics. (And compiled in a hopefully semi-coherent semi-humorous way.) So far I have complete Global Warming, the 2nd Amendment and Racism. If anyone's interested, the website is www.theliberaldetox.com

Just click on a red button at the top to get to the Detox and Sources. Feel free to save and share! (Hopefully they can help if you're ever in an argument with friends or family.)

And thanks again JJ for providing an ever growing database of sources.

And... the point no-one has mentioned (besides the fact they weren't peaceful) is that the cops and secret service told everyone to leave. They refused. If the cops tell you to leave, you leave, especially across the street from the WH.

I was in that park last year when suddenly they shut it down -the cops / security cleared everyone in about 5 minutes. We all skedaddled; no one had to be arrested of tear gassed.

_________________

More bullshit.

Last year in the U.S. there were 18 unarmed blacks killed by police. In a country of over 300 million people. In one year. Even if you assumed that all 18 of those deaths were unjustified (which they were not), it would still be statistically insignificant.

There are thousands of interactions between cops and blacks every day in this country. It is inevitable that there will be mistakes made in some of those interactions, and accidents will sometimes happen and sometimes people will die as a result, and sometimes those people will be black. It's not proof of "systemic racism" or anything else. It's just life.

If there were really "systemic racism" in this country, or if cops were really "hunting down black men" as our insane media claim, we'd see dozens of black deaths at the hands of cops every day. But we don't see that. In fact, there are more unarmed whites killed by cops in the U.S. than blacks, even though blacks commit far more violent crimes than whites, but we don't hear about those deaths, because they don't fit the left's narrative.

It's all bullshit.

473 Dr. Michael Baden seems to pop up every time there is a controversial case. But looking through several links mentioning his "independent" autopsy results, I can find no actual published findings, just the comments at the family's press conference. Given the short time period involved, unless someone can show me otherwise I'm going to have to assume that Dr. Baden never examined the body and that his "autopsy" is based on reviewing the preliminary coroner's autopsy report and watching the video. Hardly definitive IMO.

475 This incident with the truck driver Bogdan Vicherko really bothers me. I wouldn't doubt that he is an immigrant and possibly even a refugee from Serbia.

My family helped some Croatian families in the late 90s and early 00s who were serious refugees fleeing conflict. A lot of the fathers and older siblings became truck drivers because it was good money and they already had the experience driving heavy machinery during the conflict.

They didn't have anything when they moved to our part of BFE Louisiana, but after a couple of years of hardwork they were able to buy a house and even a new car.

These are the immigrants and refugees we should welcome. By the most recent reports everything he did was lawful. He was even delivering fuel to a black business.

This whole situation is depressing.

476 467 You hear a whiny voice behind you. "Hey, noob, you have to use volley fire!" You turn in time to see about a dozen black-clad young people throw bricks at the same time at the Karen. They then turn and run into the riot. She's hit in the head several times, and drops, covered in blood and screaming. You run over to see the damage. Do you:
A. Offer her a sip from the bota bag.
B. Urinate on her face

C. Steal her purse
D. Run off to join the brick-throwers in the riot.

493 I'm not sure what Beth Wilkinson added, since Sullivan appeared to ignore the precedential case entirely in his reply.
______________

She didn't ignore Fokker Services completely, she just argued that it left some wiggle room for Sullivan. She said that trial courts can look into the government's decision to dismiss a prosecution if there appears to be something hinky about the decision. Then she argued that there must be something hinky about the Flynn decision because no line prosecutors had signed the motion. LOL.

The reason that Van Grack didn't sign the motion is because he was removed from the case by the Trump DOJ after the IG investigated and found that Van Grack had failed to turn over a bunch of exculpatory Brady documents to Flynn, and Van Grack had also lied to the judge about the existence of the side agreement not to prosecute Flynn's son (which was what the Obama DOJ had used to coerce Flynn into the guilty plea).

There was something hinky going on in the Flynn case, to be sure. But it was the Obama DOJ and the Obama line prosecutors who were up to no good. They were part of the conspiracy to frame Flynn for crimes he didn't commit. That's why they didn't sign the motion to dismiss. It's not exactly a mystery.

Beth Wilkinson conveniently left those facts out of her argument.

strongest case. "I did it because I have the power to to it, and Tough
Shit if you don't like it." I'm not sure what Beth Wilkinson added,
since Sullivan appeared to ignore the precedential case entirely in his

So, now it's a pure power play, not a matter of law at all. We'll

So that's what I did. With a powerful assist from JJ's links over the years, I put together what I call Liberal Detox, a rolling compendium of facts and history that disprove all liberal nonsense of specific topics. (And compiled in a hopefully semi-coherent semi-humorous way.) So far I have complete Global Warming, the 2nd Amendment and Racism. If anyone's interested, the website is www.theliberaldetox.com

Eh, look, Rush is staring the Grim Reaper in the face and like all people he wants his time on Earth to mean something.

"You get no do-overs." as he likes to say.

Rush strikes me as a guy who knows himself very well. He knows his strengths. He knows his weaknesses.

One of his strengths is that he is a master persuader.

And I believe, one of his core beliefs is that, as a Conservative that the Law and the US Constitution are for all men and women. That following its guidelines will lead to a a happy and prosperous nation filled with happy prosperous people regardless of race or religion, etc.

However, you've got to jump into the pool and swim. If you stand outside US society and its opportunities, either through contempt or fear or, if you're held outside by alligence to the Democrat Party,

you have no way to benefit.

That doesn't mean you'll have an easy life. It just means the opportunities are there for everyone.

That positive message is what Rush was trying to convey to the Breakfast Club's audience.

That the US is for you. The Constitution was built ultimately for everyone.

And that every life has hard knocks but it's not necessarily a conspiracy against you cuz you're Black or Black people in general.

It was noble effort.

And anyone of TBC's listeners who had an open mind might be persuaded.

This wasn't meant to be a knock down, drag out, ideological fight.

If so, Rush would've gone straight after "the Magic Words" which CtG kept evoking and never defining..

ie.

What exactly is "White Privilege" defined concretely? What is "White Supremacy" defined concretely?
How does it affect you directly?
Where are the houses, the colleges, the jobs, the government positions which no Black person can access?
Etc.

These words are "Magic Signifiers" meant to be purposefully vague so that like "blank slate" Oblabla, they can mean anything to anyone,

and therefore can be used as a weapon to shutdown discussion as CtG did time after time.

As a sidenote: the Yi Girl seemed like the smartest and most open to discussion, if not to persuasion.

I liked Rush's effort.

It was positive.

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“When the first of these little trust fund sissies figures out he’s not walking out of his cell after 20 minutes with a $50 fine but looking at five years in Leavenworth on a Fed rap, he’ll squeal on his comrades. This is an opportunity to destroy Antifa root and branch, and to eliminate the armed wing of the Democrat party. Forever." Kurt Schlichter


Quote II

". . . there is need that our young men should appreciate the Constitution of the United States, under which we have enjoyed so many blessings and under which we must work out our political and economic salvation. And this need is especially keen in a day when that instrument is regarded so lightly by a class of fanatical enthusiasts seeking short cuts to economic perfection, on the one hand, and by unscrupulous demagogues who to promote their own interests do not hesitate to promote disrespect and even contempt for the Constitution and the laws enacted under it on the other." -- William Howard Taft, 27th President of the United States, February 25, 1913
H/T Isophorone Blog


Quote III


Similar or more severe restrictions apply to comparable secular gatherings, including lectures, concerts, movie showings, spectator sports and theatrical performances, where large groups of people gather in close proximity for extended periods of time. And the order exempts or treats more leniently only dissimilar activities, such as operating grocery stores, banks and laundromats, in which people neither congregate in large groups nor remain in close proximity for extended periods.Chief Justice Roberts

Heartfelt and moving, all in one fire.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN—In a powerful display of their care for love and justice, protesters in Minneapolis burned the word "LOVE" into the city, arranging the inspiring message with homes and businesses set ablaze by their riots.


Heartfelt and moving.

"We just really wanted to show how much we care about love and social justice by burning this community into a powerful reminder of what it's all about," said local protester Jake Hernandez, who had flown in from Portland for the event. "Now, when police and fire helicopters fly over to try to restore order, they'll be inspired by our message of love and harmony."

Upon seeing the heart-wrenching message of unity, police dropped their batons, ripped off their badges, donned bandanas, picked up bricks, and joined the protesters in their rioting and looting. "I don't know how I didn't see the light before," said former police officer, now Antifa chapter leader Bridget Morrison as she lobbed a Molotov cocktail into a minority-owned business. "I'm woke to the cause of love and harmony."

Having sex in your own home with someone from a different household is illegal from today, after the government altered its coronavirus legislation.

At 11.30am on Monday, a change to the law was introduced that bans two people from different households in England gathering in an indoor, private place during the coronavirus lockdown.

The amendment to the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) Bill states: “No person may participate in a gathering which takes place in a public or private place indoors, and consists of two or more persons.”

Previously, going to another person’s home to have sex would have been a breach of coronavirus lockdown restrictions, but now both parties could be prosecuted under the law. Having sex in public is already illegal.

It is now official. The Republican Party is no longer "The Stupid Party". It now is the "The Retarded Party".

According to Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R), voting by mail is the only way for people to vote safely amid the COVID-19 pandemic. While speaking to reporters Sunday, he said the state has not had any experiences that cause him great concern.

More than 3 million ballots have been mailed to Maryland voters for the state’s primary to prevent crowded polls and the spread of coronavirus. Gov. Hogan also noted that the state of Maryland has had mail-in-ballots for a while now.

“We want to make sure we get the opportunity for every single person to vote,” he stated. “We want to make sure that no voting fraud is taking place, whether by mail or any other way, but I’m not concerned about that here in our state…we’ve been doing it for a long time.”

As with all contracts, READ THE SMALL PRINT & DON'T FORGET TO READ THE FINE PRINT.

Given the current circumstances, it seems valuable to revisit a post we did a half-decade ago when Baltimore went up in flames. The question then, as now, was whether or not the property destruction would likely be covered under one's insurance. Of course, it gets a bit more nuanced, as coverage will differ slightly by locale and policy form. I reached out to FoIB (and P&C Guru) Bill M, who reminded me that a key distinction lies with the difference between terrorism (generally excluded) and civil unrest (generally covered).

He also confirmed that coverage is likely under both homeowners and commercial lines policies. As he so often instructs us: look to the exclusions for the best answers.

Pinheads and bloviaters take notice. Bill O'Reilly will be back on cable television.

Bill O’Reilly just announced he has landed a new deal that will mark his return to cable television.

Bill was banished after the liberals sons took over Fox News from their father Rupert Murdoch and someone leaked the info about his settlements. They ran Bill out of town and he has been looking for a new home ever since.

Bill was always a straight shooter and boy could this nation need some hard-fought nonpartisan wisdom right now.

From Axios:

Bill O’Reilly’s show, “No Spin News,” which currently airs on his website and across YouTube, will be broadcast twice daily on The First, a conservative digital television network that runs on several platforms, including ViacomCBS-owned Pluto TV.

Why it matters: The Trump era has given rise to a number of newer, right-wing outlets, including The First, which leverage big names in conservative media to gain traction.

If you want to see a great example what an absolute rarified genius he is, and how lightning quick he is on his feet, take a peek at this one minute video of him on stage in 2016.

The moment the kid answers the first question, within a second you see Trump's wheels turning. He then smartly does a test with a followup question and when he gets the response he expected, he gives absolutely nothing away.

Then he serves himself up a grand slam on a tee.

110 Tucker was excellent tonight, I thought.

He correctly noted that Trump needs to stop listening to Jared Kushner so much.

And when the Fox reporter in Philly shared a "heartwarming" moment with Carlson about how the cops there took a knee when the protesters asked them to, TuCa was clearly annoyed. Later on in the show, he said cops taking a knee were showing their obedience to the crowd's demands. He's right. It's appeasement. "We'll take a knee, please don't riot and throw stuff at us."

111 Video of police protecting a Big Five sports in Van Nuys. That chain sells gunz. They used to have Mosin Nagants I'd check on, just in case they had a "rare" type (they didn't really know/care what they had).

Also, mass arrests in Westwood part of LA (near UCLA).

Impression is that LA is shutting things down tonight.

Don't know enough to know this is in any way response to Trumpenbefehl - seemed that there was a lot of effort last night too, but definitely more today.

157 Initial analysis of those arrested do not support the contention by Atalanta city officials and other they were outside agitators. Of 83 arrests first 3 night , only 5 were from out of state.
Could be agitators avoided arrests but based on that it will be even harder to keep calling them peaceful protesters. But an even greater point is only 83 arrests of which the vast vast majority were curfew, pedestrian in roadway or disorderly conduct. Hardly things that will result in 5-10 years in prison. Hundred of broken windows, cars set afire, looting and that is the best the city can do? And we are to believe the mayor has cracked down hard don the protesters? BS.

Everything is calm where I live.
Because everyone here is armed to the teeth.

Especially not these man bun soy boys.

198 When the first of these little trust fund sissies figures out he's not walking out of his cell after 20 minutes with a $50 fine but looking at five years in Leavenworth on a Fed rap, he'll squeal on his comrades.

This actually happened after the Trump inauguration riots - prosecutors initially hit the protestors with felony riot charges, and looked like they were going to prosecute them.

A lot of people dropped out of Antifa as a result - getting prison terms was not what they signed up for.

Then, of course, the prosecutors reduced the charges to wrist-slaps, and Antifa happily got its drop out members back.

289 Point of order in referring to Rochester and Buffalo as "Upstate New York."
Upstate New York, as anyone Upstate knows, is sort of anything north of Westchester but not really so much in the Hudson Valley, which is just the Hudson Valley.
And Rockland County is just Rockland County.
But except for Westchester, the Hudson Valley and Rockland County, Upstate New York is everything north of that, east to the MA and VT borders, and west maybe out to Syracuse. But Syracuse is really just Syracuse.
West of that is Western New York, which is more like the bastard love child of Canada and Oakland.

Big group of people blocking one of the bridges in Portland.

The mayor begged the governor for the National Guard - the governor sent 50 unarmed National Guardsman. I assume that this is a FU to the mayor.

Also, one hundred state police were deployed - I hadn't realized that after three nights of rioting in Portland that the governor still hadn't deployed any state police to Portland.

386 Speaking of Stones' guitarists, I wonder why the SJWs haven't attacked them for not including Daryl Jones, the guy who took over for Bill Wyman, in their publicity shots. You see photos of them and it's just the 4 original Stones. Jones is treated like the backup band members, although I'm sure he's paid very well. Yeah, it was the same with Ian Stewart, but Jones is BLACK, so I'm surprised SJWs haven't screamed about his obviously 2nd class status.

But then, I always wondered how they managed to get away with "Brown Sugar" during the Black Panther era.

They've gotten away with a lot.

I'd make the 30 minute drive and bring some cold brews, but the chicken is not off the grill yet.

Oh, wait, the West Seattle Bridge is closed because Seattle let it fall apart and closed it before it fell. 36 years old. 75 year life span when built. Seattle government in action.

But they didn't pay for it anyway. After a ship captain plowed into the bridge in 1978 and broke it as it was open so it could not close, the nearly $1 billion was "found" by then Senator Warren Magnuson. He was the then Chairman of the Senate Finance committee, and the Dems were in power. He got the special spending completed in a few weeks. Here you go, Seattle!

So that would be more like 45 minutes or more, cuz I'd have to take the back roads.

Maybe another day for the beach?

Alki must be fantastic this evening, with the sun out.

Nice find! There are lots of resources on-line. You should have no problem getting a schematic, or a dial-cord stringing diagram.

You should plan on replacing all the paper capacitors, and the electrolytic filter capacitor, too. Those parts are cheap, but if the wrong one shorts out, it could kill the rectifier tube and/or the power transformer, if one is used.

Going to yank a tooth, and lose the bridge anchored on it. It was a beautiful bridge; previous dentist worked so hard to get the bite right. Now I'll have a wisdom tooth and a gap of two teeth.

And a filling fell out of another tooth. I hope that one can be saved. I'm falling apart.

But with the aspect of drugs, we were discussing the causes of death for Floyd.

He probably took a stiff narcotic dose just before getting arrested. Died of respiratory suppression. Fell asleep first.

This looks like The End of The Democrat Party.

Too many 'D' Governors, Mayors, City Council Members and their lackeys forced The Lockdown of 2020 on us, for insufficient reason and for too long ... and now they're restraining the police from enforcing the laws while paying homage to rioters.

The MSM is clearly and routinely lying to the public.

I think the Polk Co, FL Sheriff speaks for a very large slice of America.

The 'D's are 1 year too late. Perhaps all of this could've happened in 2019, then a de-sensitized American Public would've forgotten all or become resigned-to-the-new-political-reality in time to vote 'D' in November 2020 ...

... but November 2020 is only 5 months away, and there's a long, hot summer coming, and Trump will enforce the law.

WTF are they doing now, exactly? What's the point? Most Americans agree that Floyd's death was A Bad Thing. The guy who did it is in jail and awaiting trial (and whenever you think you're having a bad day, stop and tell yourself, "At least I'm not Chauvin.") What more do they want? Immediate drawing and quartering? Do we have to watch them march in the streets and carry signs and tie up traffic and go on about how sad/mad/butthurt they are every day for weeks? Christians take one day of the year to commemorate the death of Jesus Christ, but Floyd gets weeks.

I think they knew they were going down, and the ChiComFlu and these riots are their last-ditch effort.

Unfortunately, those aren't going to be enough, and they're starting to realize it (thus the desperate, and laughable, attempt to rebrand the riots as being the work of "white supremacists").

Most of them are probably on the take from the ChiComs.

486 As for businesses insured against fire, any settlement payout would go to the owner of the building as most storefronts lease the space.

I don't think inventory is insured as it is fluid in its value. Businesses usually borrow the money to buy inventory and the bank is still going to say "Rioters burned your place to the ground? Fuck you, pay me"

At any rate, the business owner is getting no income, and his workers aren't getting paid

What if he was given the bill by someone else? The only time I have seen this was in London years ago. Some store keeps were paranoid about this and rejected bills others later said were good.
I know I don't have all the facts and I don't really see the racism per se from the video. But he didn't seem to be resisting to the point where he needed a knee to the neck. And since he kept saying he could not breathe, why not let up a bit?

the thing I liked most about the Spanish uniform for the late Thirties/early Forties was the barracks cap with the Belgian style bobble hanging from the front peak.

563 Private theory. Chauvin is still a criminal asshole, but probably not a murderous asshole. That "move" he was using had doubtless been used before. Hand in pocket. Like "look I'm not hitting anyone" but knowing he was inflicting all kinds of pain in a guy recently "resisting" with a dose of humiliation in front of his homies thrown in, and a side order of "Don't Fuck With Me."

Problem is Mr. Floyd was already having ischemic chest pain and shortness of breath from the cardiovascular disease/drugs/stress/pain/abuse.

Mr. Asshole Cop thinks to himself: "I've done this to quite a few strapping young criminals and it sucks but nothing that would interfere with their breathing, so "Nice Try Mr. Strapping Resister, you don't get to stop the pain because you said the magic get-out-of-police-torture phrase like you're another Eric Garner.

Posted by: Rodrigo Borgia at June 01, 2020 11:18 PM (hKLpI)

Ian Stewart, the piano player who should have been a Stone, except manager Andrew Loog Oldham didn't like his looks, died of a heart attack when he was in his mid-50's. The guy didn't drink, didn't do drugs, didn't mess with the groupies. His thing was golf. (I recall Keith Richards saying once that Stewart booked the hotels on their first US tour and he'd always pick the ones near golf courses. It pissed off the rest of the band because they'd want to go out on the town after the show and instead they'd find themselves on a bus which dropped them off in a suburban hotel overlooking Pleasant Valleys golf course and no other bars or nightclubs around.)

Stewart's big vice was eating cheeseburgers. Unfortunately, he wasn't blessed with Richards' constitution.

I am dismayed at the well-over 90% mask compliance in my AO in NoCo. We did walk around the local Ace Hardware without masks. Felt like rebels, we did.

The mask thing is the biggest reason I still work at home. Don't wanna mask up to go to the head, or heat up my lunch.

This chase ended when 5 dudes jumped out of the car and he screams "Clown Car!" and laughed his ass off.

Funeral services for George Floyd will commence in Downtown Houston.

And while even his own Brother is speaking loudly and pleading for peace... well, you know.

I'm thinking a mix of the Ayatollah Khomeni's funeral with the Ghana Funeral Dancers and a Rap soundtrack with just a wee bit of base.

And that's just if everything goes smoothly and peaceably.

Given that ever National News Network from here to Pluto will have cameras and A-Rank Reporturds there, the opportunities for escalation seem to far exceed the exhortations to calm, and peace.

I hope the Powers that Be at Galveston City Hall have a plan for thick concertina wire barriers on the Causeway.

Bush the Elder used the provision of the Insurrection Act about a request from a governor for federal troops. Pete Wilson made the request.

Trump would likely have to use another section which gives him the power to go in on his own.

718 I'd guess, while maintaining my Yogi Berra position, that this idiocy and barbarism will help Trump, but I also think he doesn't need the help that much anyway, for November.

But sadly I also expect there to be minimal backlash or consequences for the unbelievably awful governors and mayors (and police chiefs) who have abused America, and now abetted it getting partially ransacked.

Country didn't get to this point by having voters or institutions that were sound, responsible, or even in many cases recognizable.

The Democrats have to hide the fact that if they take complete political power, every deathly suburb is going to be stuffed with Section 8 housing, and it will be too expensive for wine moms to operate their SUV's.

If the wine moms realized that, they would never vote for Democrats.

Nice find! There are lots of resources on-line. You should have no problem getting a schematic, or a dial-cord stringing diagram.

You should plan on replacing all the paper capacitors, and the electrolytic filter capacitor, too. Those parts are cheap, but if the wrong one shorts out, it could kill the rectifier tube and/or the power transformer, if one is used.

How I miss the good old days of working on tube stuff! I learned the hard way about replacing electrolytic filter caps - had an old jukebox amplifier that hummed like mad. Wired another cap in parallel, and the hum went away! But you know who forgot to discharge the good cap and got a 450 volt wake up call...

805 Far safer to riot in Portland, where there are no significant consequences for rioting.
Posted by: The ARC of History! at June 02, 2020 12:01 AM (I2/tG)

I didn't realize it last night, but rioters were making their way up a street not far from where I live, headed toward a big mall with visions of Nikes and designer handbags in their heads.

Except that when they crossed over from Milwaukee into the 'burbs, they were met by a suburban police force, and were told "You're not in Milwaukee anymore. You're in Greenfield and you must go back." And the cops backed them up.

So - no problems here. I didn't know it happened until I heard a guy call in to a local radio show and describe it. He was at a restaurant right in front of the action watching the whole thing.

The problem with Greenfield, Winnetka, Bellevue, et. al. is that they are in the same county as the big city, so you get the big city DA, and big city juries.

Far safer to be on the other side of the county line from the big city.

Hard to describe how rampant the looting was tonight in Midtown Manhattan and how lawless it was. Complete anarchy. Literally hundreds of stores up and down Broadway, Fifth Ave, Sixth Ave. Kids ruling the streets like it was a party.

It was like Mario Kart on the streets too. Dozens of $200k Mercs racing each other, nearly hitting people, only stopping to load up with bags of stolen stuff and speed on to the next spot.

Keep spinning.

You still don't need anyone's "permission" to stand in front of a public building, or even enter the grounds of the building if the building is normally open to the general public.

And I thought a church was supposed to be God's house, where all are welcome.

Apparently not to the Episcopal Church.

886 @rhomboid:

Mostly quiet. Little block watch groups have popped up last two days. Some are paid private security and former military with guns. Others are random folks with baseball bats. It's good enough to prevent most of the looting.

Lots of police scanner chatter about random shots fired, suspicious cars without license plates casing buildings, people fleeing police after curfew, apartment building break ins, etc., so they're still busy, but not overwhelmed.

Fifth precinct building, site of major rioting night after the third precinct building was abandoned, hasn't had any meaningful protests since the National Guard dispersed the crowd in thirty minutes flat, two nights ago. Failure to overrun a second station really took the wind outta their sails. Guard station on the roof tonight too.

Some helicopter traffic around sunset, but I think they've moved onto other parts of the city now.

Unfortunately, there's a huge panic about "white supremacists" stashing water bottles and milk jugs full of gasoline all around town in alleyways, behind garages, bushes, etc. Way, way more people seem to believe those rumors than I would have expected. There's been a handful of small nuisance fires around town, so it kinda gives credence to the rumors, but no "non-riot" arson cases yet.

Our local liquor store went all "BLM" on the boarded up windows after they were looted for a second night in a row.

Then they were looted for a third night with even more knocked over shelves and shattered bottles, and those big ass BLM letters were painted over out of anger, spite, or maybe a newfound wisdom that looters don't give a shit about your politics.

My favorite part of the #pdx Twitter feed is repeated posts by "Tosh BriqThey (they/them)" who is constantly imploring protestors to stand up and attack the cops, providing "unconfirmed reports" of white nationalists about to attack peaceful demonstrators, while obviously doing this from xer residence.

Newsflash, most of the young black looters from the north side of Minneapolis removed their license plates when they went on a crosstown looting spree, and flash mobbed the shops near my apartment on nights one and two.

I'm pretty sure I am actually. I'll never forget this one time I met some chick at a party clear across the country who claimed she was a medium or some shit. She was scary...scary fucking accurate about things there was no way she should know. Deaths in my family, how they died, their initials, chicks I dated in highschool, etc. We started talking about things and it went to history. I always loved history, but for some reason I have no draw to revolutionary period or anything 1700- 1800's for that matter. Its like my interest in that period is a black hole. Anyway, me and that chick were talking about history and I just started to tell her that I really like history, but for some reason I have no interest in the last few hundred years. I mean I barely got the first word out to even start that thought and she cuts me off and says "You didn't do the settling of America, you haven't been here for a long time". The wife rolls her eyes and says "yeah, I can believe that" . lol
It was a little weird, I'll say that.

1009 In light of the allowances for Schedule I drugs when done as a necessary part of religious observance (Peyote for Native Americans,) I can not understand any restrictions on church attendance.

It seems that there is a very very high bar for any law to restrict religious observance and pansy-ass-roberts must've gone to the kennedy school of limbo law to go under it.

TBH, this whole lockdown movement took me by surprise. I never expected it, and still have trouble believing it is really happening. I can understand closing certain venues, like clubs and stadiums (and subways and airplanes) but cops pepper spraying people on their porch? closing beaches? curfew?

The US has done gone nuts. We will look back at this with the same horror as the internment camps and disco.

1012 I am not so stupid as to post conservative-signaling signs in my OWN front yard.

But what I did do, is to paint some survey stakes in International Orange, with certain numbers stenciled in black paint on both large flats.

Those stakes are driven into the ground at the "Stop Sign" limit line on the inbound lane to my small subdivision, one at the corner of the outbound lane, and one each at the pedestrian and vehicular approaches to the community cluster mailboxes here.

The black stenciled text has such as "127 yards", "112 yards" and other distances indicated thereon.

Each has a sixteen inch length of fluorescent pink surveyor's ribbon tied to the top of the stake.

Of course, I have all the figures here on Range Cards, and have had, for years.

But the stakes are a warning to such Antifa who have had some kind of training, or .mil experience.

But with no indication as to the point of origin.

Sure, they could do some radial triangulation. But that would give away their game in the doing.

Oh, I didn't mention game cameras, and won't!

Opsec, and they're not going to FIND those cameras, either.

Just like this scrunt of a bishop does not have the right to say Trump doesn't belong in or near The President's Church. He does because he's the President and her personal opinions aren't worth shit.

Well I'm still playing, but I haven't been in a band in probably 2 years. I thought maybe it was time to retire from music because the gene pool for metal in this country has gone rain man. The last couple bands were retards. I mean I knew I probably wouldn't reclaim my former glory, but the shit is still in the blood, so I kept trying. It started getting old fast. The older you get the harder it is to find bands that aren't spent physically. The drummers shoulders are shot, the singers can;t quite hit the notes, etc. The younger bands seem to be more in love with the idea of being in a band rather than doing the hard work to BE a band. I figured give it a rest for a bit and see what happens. God damn though I miss it.

1056 @1040: "Insurance policies usually specifically exclude damages as a result of civil unrest, war, riots, etc."

I've read that riot coverage tends to split across several categories including window damage, interior structure damage, inventory loss or damage, and even ongoing operation expenses during closure.

But, yeah, even one or two items on the ala carte menu add up real fucking fast, especially if you're in a big city with any history of civil unrest.

1073 I've got an early generation set of Peltor, electronic noise cancelling earmuffs.

They're anything but compact. But they're superior to much of what's on the market today.

Same generation units used by "teams", included a boom microphone, and wiring to connect to comms.

Of which, I've seen precisely ONE unit for sale in the civilian market, and the asking price was up in the Night Vision Gear range.

There is a stratosphere of equipment out there, which pretty much never descends to our humble altitudes.

Oh, the *comparable* does, eventually. But it's not nearly the equal of the unobtanium of prior Govt. Contract stuff.

We're blessed that we mere plebes can buy an Aimpoint ACOG for $1,300 or so. I mean that, seriously.

In earlier times, that would have been a classified, security item FOREVER.

1st Gen Starlight Scopes were, too. Until 3rd Gen finally changed the market.

You know, I thought that was the case with this last band. The guitar player was great. Together we had done some killer things, but he just was missing the big picture. They were big fans of the one band I was in, so they would always ask what the next move was, because I had been there, but they just didn't seem to be ready to do anything with the answer. They had this bill and ted wild stallions mentality. They would ask what should we do next. I would tell them, right now its all about the songs and the show. Power, big power, hammer in the audience's fucking forehead power, and the rest falls in place. I told them I still had some contacts, and decent gigs we could get IF...IF we unleash the fucking kraken. I get "well what about the scrims, or pictures, or...etc. I said none of that shit matters, you play a gig, rip the people's face's off and they rest will come. Meanwhile the guitar player loses his chick to some musclebound dude, so now he wants to start lifting, and taking steroids, and other crap way off the map. I told him point blank, get the music done, do the gigs, and you'll have to beat the chicks off with a fucking firehose, don't let this bitch torpedo your destiny just because she wanted no part of it obviously. Yeah well, I couldn't get through to him, and his head just wasn't in it. Damn shame, major waste of talent.

Experienced a demo once - you wouldn't be standing there like an MSM-deformed airhead with your "hands up" (yes, this idiotic slanderous myth is literally just accepted truth among the vapid, vile "protesters"), much less posing a threat.

As far the injustices against the black community; give me a break this not the same as the civil rights movement in the Fifties and Sixties. The truth is the black community needs to take a serious look at themselves and the amount of crime committed.

Exactly right. It's just virtue-signaling by people who no longer believe in God.

And emotionalism. I saw a white protester sobbing about Floyd's death. I too think the cop's actions were unwarranted but she was crying about Floyd like her daddy or or her dog died. Really? He would have been some stranger on the street to her 2 weeks ago.

But since the '60's Western culture has adopted this attitude that if you show you REALLY REALLY care, you are virtuous. But emotionalism can easily flip from sentimentalism to vicious hatred as the Left shows.

The late conservative writer Florence King wrote an essay on Rousseau which shows how quickly an emphasis on MY EMOTIONS can turn into barbarianism. The same people who praised Rousseau for feeeeeeelings and sobbing and crying about every damn thing were chopping off heads during the Terror. The left switches from "oh, poor saintly Floyd" to beating the shit out of old women without taking a breath.

Milwaukee is probably on a curve. Sure Barrett would like more protests, but since there is still hope of the DNC convention he wants to keep the illusion that they'd be ready for the big time.

I suspect otherwise, and this will serve as a dry run for the radicals should the convention take place as well. A protest Olympics, if you will.

1129 There was another riot control measure that was tested once. Foam. Some kind of light, fluffy foam that did not block breathing badly, but totally blocked the affected people from seeing or hearing one another.

Hah, hah. I was just reading a ZeroHedge post on why the looters stealing Rolex watches from the high-end stores are fucked. Every Rolex has a serial number, and that is meticulously recorded. The ones who pay the big bucks for them want the serial numbers and official Rolex docs, which the looters won't have.

When the try to fence one, they will have no luck, and as all stolen Rolex serials will be flagged. If they take to any legitimate dealer or buyer, they will know it is stolen and report it immediately, and confiscate the watch.

The only buyers will be those who are okay with stolen Rolexs, and they aren't going to pay much.

Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington DC has an 11 pm curfew like diBlasio's to facilitate rioting. She told rioters that it was safe to breach the White House. She was hoping rioters would attack the President and his family. At a minimum, she was trying to get people killed for the cameras.
This kind of hyper-partisan lunacy, even insurrection, is why the Founders created the District as a Federal City. It's time to re-think home rule for D.C..

1169 Episcopal Church is a mess---and I say that as a cradle Episcopalian.
The bishop of D.C.--don't know her--but is likely far far left as that is traditionally true of the Diocese of D.C.

Ownership of church property is complicated. A lot depends on when the church was formed. We had some big legal scuffles in Diocese of VA when a number of 18 C. founded churches wanted to leave ECUSA and join one of the Anglican offshoots (this was early oughts, right when ECUSA had the brilliant idea of appointing an alcoholic, divorced and newly gay "priest" bishop--i.e., Vicky Gene Robinson. He was a train wreck and an "object lesson" for tolerance.

In the end, we lost, but Anglican offshoots are doing well in U.S. We attend an Anglican church when we are home (in VA).

In Texas, otoh, there are still conservative and Biblically sound (believe it or not) Episcopal churches. We attend one of those. But the church hierarchy is still a mess.

I could tell a lot of stories since I know some of the leadership of the denomination...but we've got much bigger fish to fry here among the Horde. Gotta find some way to sav our country.

Not sure it is possible, honestly.
