THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

“So they made in my family made a hard decision. And my whole family chipped into buy a house about 40 minutes north of here. And that’s when I got my first taste of the country who allows their kids destiny to be determined by the zip code they are born in. And so much of my life was shuttled between these two worlds, and not just the two worlds between the Bronx and Westchester county, but the continental U.S., New York state, and Puerto Rico.” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)


Quote II

“First, I want to thank God and all the fans for the beautiful game, the beautiful playoffs,” Altuve said. “We deserve to be in the World Series because my team has been working real hard.” Jose Altuve


Quote III

“This (multicultural) approach has failed, utterly failed,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel


Quote IV

Millions of us were thrown off our health insurance plans by Obamacare, and now I find out that it didn’t even make things better for anyone else. The government intervenes, everything goes to hell, then Democrats cite the hell they created to demand another massive government intervention.

The motto of all socialist schemes should be: “This time, it will be different.”Ann Coulter


Quote V

“I love planting trees and trying to improve and enhance the environment to restore lost habitats and all these things. I just pray that climate change and all the horrors we are facing now if we don’t do something about it, won’t completely destroy all this effort.” Prince Charles


Quote VI

“We’re now moving towards the total elimination of women’s biology. The women’s symbol has been used by feminists for decades. This is pure cowardice and virtue signaling from these big corporate brands who are capitulating to the trans agenda,” Julie Bindel

There can't be Fake News. When there is no news at all.

Meanwhile they do their best to avoid talking about all his lies and the reason for censure. It didn’t pass but at least it put his lies on record.

Via Newsbusters:

On Monday, the network morning shows devoted a total of 15 seconds of air time to congressional Republicans moving to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff for his handling of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump. Only NBC actually covered the news – in a dismissive tone – while ABC and CBS completely skipped the story

Call me "Doubting Thomas Mis. Hum. A major breakthrough on the electric car battery scene.

Imagine, if you will, a lightweight, inexpensive power source with 9 times the energy density of a lithium-ion battery. Got your mind wrapped around that concept? Now imagine that power source uses recycled aluminum, one of the most abundant metals on Earth, and an electrolyte so nontoxic you can drink it.


Call this power source a battery. Call it a fuel cell. Call it whatever you like. It is an invention that could upend energy storage as we know it and drive the electrification of transportation — from bicycles and neighborhood electric vehicles to heavy trucks, airplanes, and cargo ships — forward at warp speed.

The person behind all this is UK engineer and former Royal Navy officer Trevor Jackson, who began experimenting with aluminum air batteries at his workshop in the Cornish town of Callington in 2001. At that time, the electrolyte used was extremely caustic and poisonous. After years of experimentation, Jackson devised a new electrolyte — whose composition is a closely guarded secret — he says make it possible for his invention to power an electric car for up to 1,500 miles.

Bug or feature? Amazon is shipping products that are outdated.

Amazon’s sprawling marketplace, consisting of millions of third-party sellers, has become a go-to site for many grocery shoppers, especially since the company’s acquisition of Whole Foods over two years ago.

But an increasing number of consumers are finding that, just as the broader Amazon Marketplace has a major issue with counterfeits and unsafe products, the grocery section is littered with similarly problematic items in the form of expired foods.

From baby formula and coffee creamer to beef jerky and granola bars, items are arriving spoiled and well past their sell-by date, Amazon customers say. Interviews with brands, consumers, third-party sellers and consultants all point to loopholes in Amazon’s technology and logistics system that allow for expired items to proliferate with little to no accountability. Consumer safety advocates worry that as the marketplace grows, the problem will only get worse.

What's the Chinese word for "Apple"? Everyday they continue to become more and more Chinese.

Chinese Ban
One company that probably won’t be bidding is Apple Inc., the people said. The tech giant has eschewed controversial programming that could damage its brand, and it’s wary of offending China, where it sells a lot of iPhones. “South Park” was just banned in China after an episode mocked the country’s censorship of Western movies and TV.

The riches from the sale will be split between Viacom, Parker and Stone under a unique deal forged in 2007. The creators and the media giant split all the digital rights 50-50 under a joint venture that covers streaming, mobile and games.

Netflix previously licensed “South Park” through a deal with Viacom, a transaction that paid out in the tens of millions. Hulu snagged the rights in 2014 and reupped it a year later.

Parker and Stone have used their profit from “South Park” and their hit Broadway play “The Book of Mormon” to create and fund their own studio, which was valued at $300 million in 2013. That value is about to go way up.

The only reason why we use your crappy product is because we are made to. Ethanol should sink or swim on its own.

EVANSVILLE, Ind., Oct. 18 (UPI) -- Farming and renewable fuel groups are angry over an Environmental Protection Agency proposal that they say will reduce the amount of biofuels that oil refiners are required to use next year -- and they are fighting to have it overturned.

The proposed rule, the groups say, reneges on a promise the Trump administration made two weeks ago to require large oil refineries to increase their ethanol use enough to compensate for the exemptions granted to small refineries.

Americans and their fire arm preferences.

The FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS for short, reveals all sorts of data. Most folks just look at the grand total number each month or year and compare that to the previous year’s data for an idea of sales trends. But the data has a much bigger story to tell.

Most people assume that each NICS check represents a firearm transfer. In the past, the overwhelming majority did indeed represent transfers. However, today, most NICS checks are done for license checks and re-checks.


For instance, did you know that Illinois has the most NICS checks of any state so far in 2019? More than even Texas. Far more.

Quite the den. Next to the 8 pointer and the 10 pound walleye hanging on the wall is Uncle Dave.

Tattoos can be very meaningful and hold a lot of sentimental value to both the owner and their loved ones.

Over the course of a lifetime some people can spend thousands inking their bodies and one mortician is now offering a controversial service to turn tattoos into 'fine art'.

Michael Sherwood, from Cleveland, gives grieving families the option after a death of keeping the tattooed skin as parchment-like artwork they can hang in their homes in remembrance.

Breathalyzers. We all know that they work for detecting someone's BAC. Now there appears to be a breathalyzer that detects marijuana usage. However, how much pot is too much when it comes to driving?

New marijuana breathalyzer tests that are billion times more sensitive than one for testing alcohol levels have been dubbed a 'game-changer' by researchers.

Some law enforcement agencies across the country have been reluctant to have marijuana legalized in their states, worried relaxed rules for the drug could lead to an explosion of impaired drivers on the road.

But now cops could loosen up to the idea, thanks to devices from Hound Labs and Sanntek that can tell how recently someone has consumed THC, a by-product of marijuana, and in turn detecting whether they're likely to be high.

'With alcohol, if you have over 0.08% in your blood, there's the presumption that you're intoxicated,' Christopher Leusner, head of the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, told the Philadelphia Inquirer. 'There hasn't been a blood test or a breath test that can determine if you're impaired by marijuana.'

Wow. What a surprise an honest campaign ad.

Don't you enjoy being lectured to by someone who hasn't earned a right to pontificate? Chelsea Clinton opens her pie hole.

I am so proud of my mom. I’m very biased toward her…love her very much and feel very protective of her, although I know she doesn’t need me to be. But, really my most important role now is as my kids mom. You know I have a daughter Charlotte who just turned five last week, a son Aiden, he is three and baby Jasper just two months old,” continued Chelsea Clinton. “And I think about the country they’re living in right now it’s not the country I want them to grow up in. We learned last night that President Trump wanted to dig a ditch at the border and put alligators and snakes and shoot migrants in the leg…The depth of cruelty and inhumanity towards migrants, towards people of color, towards LGBTQ community…is not the America I want my kids to grow up in.”

I'm sure there is some logical explanations, amirite? Great Britain's Prince Andrew was in Jeffrey Epstein's contacts. Not just once, but thirteen different numbers.

A private investigator looking into the activities of billionaire peadophile Jeffry Epstein claimed it was ‘hogwash’ that Prince Andrew ‘didn’t know what Epstein was about’.

Mike Fisten, one of the first investigators to examine allegations that Epstein had sexually abused and trafficked girls, found ’13 contact numbers for Prince Andrew’ in an address book at his mansion in Palm Beach, Florida.

In an interview with Channel 4’s Dispatches airing tonight, Fisten said the book was a ‘treasure trove’ of information and showed his team the true scope of Epstein’s travels and contacts.

He said: ‘You could take for instance, if looking at the section in London, you could pick out, the Duke of York, which is Prince Andrew. And when you look at that, under Duke of York it shows Buckingham Palace London.

Apparently, California Gov. Gavin Newsom doesn't give a rats ass about the law abiding citizens of California.

California Governor Gavin Newsom pardoned three immigrant felons last week to help them avoid being deported from the United States.

Newsom, who oversees the most pro-illegal immigration state in U.S. history, pardoned three immigrants — Arnou Aghamalian from Iran, Thear Seam from Cambodia, and Victor Ayala from El Salvador — in order to erase their criminal records and help them avoid deportation back to their native countries.


I understand the reasons why California Morons stay. Is there a breaking point where you say F*ck it, I'm out of here?

Somebody never learned the meaning of the word "NO!". Genius Award Winner.

The naked Missouri woman who sat on her boyfriend’s face and demanded that he perform oral sex on her has pleaded guilty to a domestic violence charge, according to court records.

Amy Parrino, 44, copped last month to a felony assault charge and was sentenced to three years in custody, though a Circuit Court judge stayed the execution of the prison term and placed the Columbia resident on five years probation.

As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dropped a felony sexual assault charge against Parrino, who worked prior to her arrest as an embalmer’s assistant at a mortuary.

Parrino had been locked up in the Boone County jail since her arrest last December. She was released following her sentencing and ordered to have no contact with the victim.

Recently we covered the story of a Dollar General clerk in Dayton, Ohio shooting a perp. His future employment is uncertain until now. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Kyle Reyes, CEO of The Silent Partner Marketing and national spokesman for Law Enforcement Today, announced through the pro-cop news site that he is extending an amazing offer to the clerk.

“I believe the company will do the right thing, just as I believe this clerk did the right thing,” Reyes said. “If, for whatever reason, they don’t, we’d be honored to offer the clerk a position at our company.”

This clerk doesn’t need to worry about a strict firearm policy, either. Reyes’ gun-friendly company sounds like heaven on earth for Second Amendment enthusiast

38 That "new" battery is not a new technology. Well-known. The thing is, the battery can't be recharged. It basically consumes itself as it generates power, and must be wholly replaced.

It's possible, given the low cost of the components, that some recycling-manufacturing thing might make this feasible, but it would have to be damn cheap to beat out a rechargable lithium-ion system, even counting the eventual replacement cost of that battery (after many, many cycles)

61 Kid Rock is probably the greatest musical talent that America has ever produced.

I enjoy listening to Kid Rock, drinking ice cold light beer, cooking hot dogs and hamburgers on a charcoal grill, having girls with bleached-blonde hair and big hooters playing beer pong and jumping in the swimming pool in bikinis, shooting off store-bought fireworks that are illegal in my area, starting a big bonfire and passing a jar of char moonshine around until everybody gets drunk and somebody falls into the fire.

This is the American way. It's a better way. Better than man has ever known.

68 The Daily Mail, doing the job American media won't do, stationed a photographer outside Ilhan Omar's luxury apartment in September for a week to capture the comings and goings of Omar and her boyfriend, Tim Mynett. Apparently they have a rule that they don't enter or leave the apartment together.

It was fun seeing a photograph of Mynett showing up at the apartment with two six-packs of Stella Artois (Omar doesn't drink, does she?), but best of all was this gem:

Wednesday: Omar heads to work and ends her day by picking up Chick-Fil-a and heading home.

BREAKING: Jury rules against dad trying to save his 7-year-old from gender 'transition'

DALLAS, Texas, October 21, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) - A jury has ruled against Jeffrey Younger, the father who is trying to protect his seven-year-old son, James, from chemical castration via a gender "transition." This means James' mother, Dr. Anne Georgulas, will be able to continue "transitioning" him into "Luna," and now has full authority to start him on puberty blockers and eventually cross-sex hormones.
The jury's decision likely means that Mr. Younger will be required to "affirm" James as a girl, despite his religious and moral objections, and will also be forced to take a class on transgenderism.

Unfortunately, we saw this movie play out when Ah-nold was running against Gray Davis.

Turned out that mistake #1 was not realizing that Davis was simply the beneficiary of a rotten legislature in Sacramento. They all needed to be turned out, not just the guy at the top. Since the CA Deep State remained, it was just a matter of time before the Governator was co-opted, and ultimately became just another GOPe leftist gov.

We can get rid of Newsom, but the Democratic supermajority signed off on anything Newsom recommended, and will continue to do so after he leaves.

131 That AOC quote doesn't even make sense. How can this be a country whose kids' destiny is determined by the zip code they were born in if her family was able to move out of the zip code she was born in? Shouldn't the point of her story be that the zip code you're born in doesn't determine your destiny? You can save up and move to a better neighborhood. You're not stuck in the same place your entire life.

AOC is too stupid to see that her family's story undermines her claim that your zip code is your destiny.

151 "Is there a breaking point?"

I will miss my friends and family, but will visit often, but my job I really like, and I can't do it anywhere else. I also love my house, which I've worked on and made my own.
But every time Newsom does something, it means less to me.

The power outages are it for me. That's third world. I'm traveling on scouting trips every couple of weeks. I will retire in the next year and go, before the home values crater.

153 133 Oh you guys I have to share this. My company has a client in Dallas. She's never been easy to deal with. She has a garden center and greenhouse. Her business was completely demolished by the tornado that ripped through there. I talked to her today and despite the sometimes contentious relationship we have had with her my heart went out to her. I told her how sorry I was and if we, as a company could do anything for her to please let us know. I can't imagine how devastated she is right now. We were so blessed with beautiful weather for the MoMe and the next day it went to shit.

161 There remains zero evidence that Russia hacked the DNC. I repeat, there remains zero evidence that Russia hacked the DNC.

As cybersecurity expert Jeffrey Carr noted:
Jeffrey Carr called the FBI/Department of Homeland Security Report, the only alleged evidence released by intelligence officials, released in late December 2016 a "fatally flawed effort" that provided no evidence to substantiate the claims that the Russian government conducted the hacks, though that's what it was purported to do.

Absolutely remarkable, but there's more. As TechCrunch reported back in 2015:

If you need proof that security is a red hot market these days, how about this morning's announcement that cybersecurity company CrowdStrike landed a $100 million Series C investment round?


The round was led by Google Capital with Rackspace, which happens to be one of the company's customers also investing. Existing investors Accel and Warburg Pincus also participated. Today's investment brings the total to-date to $156 million.

Why do I find it interesting that Google was a major investor in CrowdStrike? Well for one, we know that Chairman of Alphabet, Inc. (Google's parent company), Eric Schmidt, was actively working to help the Hillary campaign.


Who is Crowdstrike?

(MS is talcum powder btw.)

There's also the suggestion to actually coat the letter in something to make it look deadly, like yellow-tinted flour.

I admit I would want to say "hydrofluoric acid" instead of magnesium silicate, although I'm not sure many people know how deadly hydrofluoric acid is.

Most rural areas have a few gas stations that sell non-ethanol gas. I think all marinas do but they are really inconvenient unless you're in a canoe full of gubs!
I buy the ethanol-free premix for the chain saw (for convenience), but bulk ethanol free for the small engines!

Yeah, pull the other one. Lithium is what, 30 some odd lbs cu ft, Al is what, 130?

Posted by: Anon a mouse at October 21, 2019 10:18 PM (6qErC)

---

The lithium in lithium ion batteries is not pure lithium, it's a compound of lithium and a few other things. There is also a graphite electrode that the lithium ions migrate into.

The reason for the higher energy density of the aluminum battery, though, is that it uses atmospheric oxygen to oxidize the aluminum, rather than a self-contained redox compound as in a lithium battery.

Imagine if a gasoline powered car had to carry an internal supply of oxygen to burn the gasoline.

297 Having gone through Basic Training, my advice is this: Just roll with it. it's a fucking game. Their job is to tear you down and rebuild you. I was 21 when I went in. Still young, but a couple of years of living lean in Alaska and Arizona. My drill sergeants were hard and mean, but I never forgot that they were making me a soldier. I came out the other side ten pounds heavier and ready to fuck shit up.

Bottom line: I fucking loved Basic Training. The rest of my Army experience was, well, kind of deflating.

Almost got to go to the sandbox in '91, but nope.

319 You know, even with the gay thing, I don't remember any people losing custody over disapproving of their kid being gay.

But with the trans thing, it's just "do whatever your Leftist ex-wife wants. If you go against the agenda - then fuck you. No more parental rights. Now go to Tolerance Camp while one of our Dr. Mengeles mutilates your son. You're deplorable."

This is much different, and darker. And it has nothing to do with the transgender thing.

It's everywhere in the behavior of the law courts, and the government at large.

These are the actions of a government that has taken off the gloves, no longer cares about the appearance of serving the people or even following the law, and is now simply lunging for total power.

A burr grinder will improve all coffee. Won't have the over extraction bitterness problem.

Normally I roast through first crack then based on the "smoke" and color let it run for about 15-20 seconds before cooling over 12 minutes. It is an art to do a proper roast-then-coast. Very easy to get it into Vienna range.

Vietnamese surnames are tribal. There's really only a handful. But they still are cautious about in-marrying, even though there are huge numbers of people with the same surname.

Pulsing a blade grinder is OK. The only problem I have with a blade grinder is over extraction of the smaller bits whereas burr makes for even sizes.

I think the difference in a light roast vs a dark roast and having a fresh bean far outweighs any taste difference between blade and ceramic burr.

Most people can't even distinguish the differences between an African or a Columbian bean so just enjoy without the bitterness.

I think the majority comments I get has nothing to do with taste, rather its about smoothness. That is just a freshness and roast level issue.

Normally I roast through first crack then based on the "smoke" and

It is an art to do a proper roast-then-coast. Very easy to get it
into Vienna range.

My first toast was a five dollar air pop corn popper and a wooden spoon.

Plugged in the air popper to a long extension cord so that the voltage would drop and the popper would be at the right temperature for roasting. Then put in about two ounces of green beans, let it sit there while it heats up. The beans, if the right amount is put in, will start to roll then as the moisture is extracted will start to tumble. Just keep stirring while the silver skin flakes off and blows out (I was doing this in the driveway so as not make a mess). Stir through first crack, count another twenty seconds or so and pour out the hot beans into a collander to cool.

Better than a coffee shop - and makes the neighbors wonder. (smells great too)

Some things are just worth doing right. And it's not just the grinder, it's the beans. Does the store where one buys beans have a brisk business, i.e., turnover of product?

I get my beans from a store in Manhattan that's been in business for over 100 years. Their coffee doesn't sit around so it's always fresh; pre-ground coffee goes stale/flat quicker than whole beans. I found a couple of flavors (countries) and blends I like and the coffee is wonderful. Some people think of coffee as a caffeine need, just get some into their body, but I appreciate a good cup of coffee like I appreciate a good snort of 18-year-old Johnny Jameson Irish Whiskey.

Winston, good salmon in Texas is as rare as good brisket in Seattle.

Actually, there are a couple of places in the suburbs that slow cook excellent brisket around here. At least one of them had relocated from the Lone Star State. The other is a buddy of mine who has gone nuts with his smoker, built on a trailer that he tows with his 4x4 Ram 2500. I think the smoker costs more than the damn truck.

He uses apple wood and cherry wood from Wenatchee.

I wonder who got the bags marked with the 'X'. Those are roasted from a Geisha variety. Pretty danged expensive bean (compared to the Arabica) but they are noticeable for their Earl Gray tones.

I think pretty much the best I can get score wise from an Arabica bean is between 83 and 89. The Geishas can have cup scores in the 90s.

467 Yay!

The San Francisco Chronicle has an article on the measures that Qatar is taking to cool soccer fans, which is necessary because of global warming, of course.

I excitedly read the article, waiting for the statement that is mandatory when talking about global warming in a particular place, and I was not disappointed.

"Qatar is one of the fastest warming areas of the world, at least outside of the Arctic," said Zeke Hausfather, a climate data scientist at Berkeley Earth, a nonprofit temperature analysis group.

It is a central tenant of the climate priests that everwhere is warming faster than the global average.

The article did notice in passing that the warming might have something to do with the fact that Doha, the capital, went from sparsely populated desert to big city, with lots of asphalt and concrete laid down that warms the local environment, but that effect is obviously trivial compared to gerbil warbeling.

470 387 I understand that. But at one time I looked at some burr grinders. Some of the prices were astronomical

Pulsing a blade grinder is OK. The only problem I have with a blade grinder is over extraction of the smaller bits whereas burr makes for even sizes.

I think the difference in a light roast vs a dark roast and having a fresh bean far outweighs any taste difference between blade and ceramic burr.

Most people can't even distinguish the differences between an African or a Columbian bean so just enjoy without the bitterness.

I think the majority comments I get has nothing to do with taste, rather its about smoothness. That is just a freshness and roast level issue.

Have not considered roasting coffee beans just yet, but do enjoy trying different local roasted items - the craft roasting thing has taken off fairly well, though of course not matching the beer situation.


And for afternoon coffee I've long enjoyed a variety of approaches. Vietnamese [cold or iced], Lebanese/Turkish style, or just French press or single pour-over [blade grinder for the latter two, but will look into the burr kind].

507 I don't believe it.

AOC's bio page on her campaign website:

She ended up attending public school 40 minutes north in Yorktown, and much of her life was defined by the 40 minute commute between school and her family in the Bronx.

When she was caught, it was changed to this:

She ended up attending public school in Yorktown - 40 minutes north of her birthplace. As a result, much of her early life was spent in transit between her tight-knit extended family in the Bronx and her daily student life. It was clear to her, even then, that the zip code a child was born in determined much of their destiny.

Her campaign really, really didn't want to admit that she grew up in Westchester, since that conflicted with her "poor girl growing up in the Bronx" narrative.

Would have preferred to see a Conservative win, but CPC leader Andrew Scheer seems to be such a milksop, I could not get exercised to donate to their campaign, or even vote for them. I wound up voting for the Peoples Party of Canada candidate, (right of center populist) mainly as a way of sending a message to the Tories to up their game, and not to ignore the base.

I expect this minority government to have a short lifespan. I hope the CPC has a leadership review, and comes up with a leader who is more of a firebrand.

528 AOC's tweet “Your attempt to strip me of my family, my story, my home, and my identity is exemplary of how scared you are of the power of all four of those things,”

This echos Warren's attempt to cover her 'Cherokee' lie,
"Warren says now, as she has from the first days of her public life, that she based her assertions on family lore, on her reasonable trust in what she was told about her ancestry as a child.

“I know who I am,” she said in a recent interview with the Globe."

536 Having gone through Basic Training, my advice is
this: Just roll with it. it's a fucking game. Their job is to tear you
down and rebuild you. I was 21 when I went in. Still young, but a couple
of years of living lean in Alaska and Arizona. My drill sergeants were
hard and mean, but I never forgot that they were making me a soldier. I
came out the other side ten pounds heavier and ready to fuck shit up.



Bottom line: I fucking loved Basic Training. The rest of my Army experience was, well, kind of deflating.

You've got it exactly right Pug. My experience was a little different but the lessons were the same. I went through Airborne School as an O-3 and the Blackhats were bound and determined to try to get me to quit, punishing me hard for every infraction in my stick. I knew it was a head game and every time they gave me 50 I tried to answer with a smile, no matter how much I was hurting. After about three days of riding me hard they saw they weren't going to break me and they backed off. I had nothing but absolute respect for them. Best run school in the Army.

Tell me about it. I hit the heart attack lottery. I had a silent one; 15% of the heart attack population have silent ones, that is, no elephant sitting on your chest, no tingling in the left arm, nothing. So having heart attack symptoms is a good thing since it can be treated early. Didn't know I was having a heart attack for months, until the effects manifested themselves into what I thought was a bad case the flu. Permanent scarring of my heart which affects the electrical impulses across the heart to make it beat; the heart attack reduced my heart function to 25%, which I've gotten up to 50%, and that's about the max it will ever be. Now I have a pace maker with defib paddles (an ICD). Sucker's fired 10 times -- with no warning given. Better that, though, than being on the wrong side of the ground. If I'd have had my heart attack 20 years prior to when mine was diagnosed, I would not have survived as long as I have now (13 years).

Modern medicine is a God-send.

Now there is a mini-kerfuffle in the policy wonk world about whether commitments were made to SDF that are now being violated. Extremely unlikely - the only caveat being that the idiotic Obama admin. was in power then, and the especially weird and toxic Brett McGurk was involved. Who knows.

It isn't right, and neither is the dice calculator. I sorted it out. 59.78 was a typo - I meant 50.78. But I was working from an assumption of 10, because I didn't know the pool. Then I remembered that it's necessary to know the total number of judges, because probabilities change based on total selection, as it's iterative.

If you read down, I sussed out the equation you need, but you must know the total number of judges. Your question is missing information.

And I'm a dumdum, because fractionals don't work for this type of problem, anyway. You can't hack a judge in half.

My brain is not going full speed, but this probability solution involves combinations and permutations.

The probability of a three judge panel with two republicans is the ratio of all the distinct combinations of such three judge panels to the total number of such combinations.

Define thing precisely. Do you want the number of panels with at least two Rs, which would include those with three, or those with just two Rs.

The total number is easy. It's defined as the combination function, C(n, r), which means the number of unique combinations of n things taken 'r' at the time.

That is n!/(r!(n - r)!) where ! is the factorial.

That's your denominator. Now, the numerator is the subset of those with 2 (or at least two) of the class you want.

But looking at the B-roll 2:27 mark it looks like the left landing flap is up but it might be simply because well the wing has hit the ground. Parts of the right wing was consumed in the fire and not sure if that flap survived.

when I entered US Navy boot camp at 20, I was on the buddy program so had a childhood friend in my company.

Well, I was a Pole Vaulter in High School and College, so needless to say the early pushups were not an issue ( we used to do hand stand push ups as part of our practice).

About week 3 of boot camp, we were told to drop and give 50, and I just pumped them out, BUT

My buddy looked over at me and smiled. When the Petty Officer in charge saw and asked him why he was smiling, he told them that I was a had gone to a State Championship for Vaulting, and could do push ups all day.

BASTARD.

I ended up doin THOUSANDS of more push ups than the rest of my company, because, I could.

And yes, I am still in contact with my 'buddy', and still give him SHIT about that.

There is also the mystery of why #3 seemed to be in the process of feathering. Did the co-pilot, who was qualified on things like the B757, screw the pooch trying to help the command pilot?

And still the plane managed to veer right after landing and hit the deicing facility.

I was just looking. The number of appeals judges on a circuit court is not constant, but varies with circuit. The 9th has the most, 29 judges.

Posted by: Zettai Roshia-no Asetto at October 22, 2019 01:03 AM (7WaWV)

If the jackscrews for the flaps were retracted, that seems to me to be definitive. The nature of jackscrews is such that they pretty much have to be motored (or hand-cranked) in order to move. Impact or vibration is unlikely to move them, and it's unlikely that electrical power to retract them would be available, should the switches be jammed in the "retract" position upon impact.

Makes one wonder if flaps were lowered by pilot in command, and then raised again by co-pilot, in the mistaken belief that he was lowering them. Or the other way around?

My brain is not full in gear, but me think about this. We'll go with N, total number of judges, 26. Nr = 18, Nd = 8.

Now, we want the number of 3-judge panels with at least two Rs. So, for our first two choices, we must choose only from Nr. So we get Nr*(Nr - 1) number. Now, for the third choice, we pick from any available of the remaining judges, which is N - 2.

So, according to that reasoning, the number of such picks is thus Nr*(Nr-1)*(N - 2).

Now, the r! will cancel in the ratio, so I get our final answer as:

Nr*(Nr - 1)*(N-2) / [ (N*(N-1)*(N-2) ]

(N - 2) cancels

For N = 26, Nr = 18, we get:

18*17/(26*25) = 47.1%

596 Interesting moment today at the doc's office. Was in for my annual checkup, and the nurse asked if I'd had my flu shot. I hadn't, so asked if I would like to get it, and I said sure.

When she comes back with the vaccine, I stood up to get the shot. She smiled at me and said, "You were in the service, weren't you?"

"Yes", I answered, "but how did you know?"

"Guys who were in the service always stand up for their shots...you're the 4th Vet today."

601 Okay, but what is that lumped in with 3:0 R : D ? Because that would obviously be a winning pick.

-------

3 : 0 R : D is much more probable than 2:1 at 94%. Every time you pick, the odds of picking a D appointee go up - but at that starting ratio, not much - 18:26, 17:25, 16:24, etc.

3 out of 26 is overwhelming odds in favor of an R-pure panel.

607 IOW - there's no point in lumping them together - chosen at random, there's a 94% chance of an R-appointed majority.

But, since R-appointed judges are 75% secretly Democrats, the odds of ever getting a conservative majority on a given court are very low.

Taking into account the "Lowlife GOP Grifter x-factor", I'd call it much closer to 8% for the probability of securing a conservative majority here.

Heh. You could partition B.C., too. British Columbia is deeply divided. Most of the moonbats live on Vancouver Island, and the Lower Mainland, which includes the entire urban sprawl of Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, and precious little else. Put the boundary line on the Fraser River a mile downstream of the town of Hope. All lands drained by the Fraser River, and its tributaries downstream of that point would belong to the rump of B.C., along with Vancouver Island, and the Gulf Islands. There would be a fair slice of virtually uninhabited Coast Mountains included in the package.

33 As an 11b with a CIB, I voted for Trump and totally support him. I also hate the Never Trumpers with the fury of several thousand MOABs.

But I also worry that Trump is losing the military vote with his failure to stand firm for our allies in blood, the Kurds. We have a sacred trust with the Kurds, one written a long, long time ago, even if it was never actually written.

But who will trust us now? My warrior brothers want to keep fighting until they age out, because True Patriots shed blood freely for freedom, no matter who profits.

I say this as a friend and ally of Trump.

I do not think he's perfect, a Saint,nor a choirboy, nor does he need to be, Find him brash sometimes. So what?. I am absolutely against impeaching a president for nothing that even comes close to high crimes and misdemeanors and I am appalled by secret star chambers.

I would also like to think that Pence is against impeachment for no sufficient cause because if Trump goes Pence is next onthe chopping black for the dastardly Dems.

You don't know what it's like to see the tears in the eyes of grown men who might be denied their first tour in Afghanistan with their son! Such a proud moment, a father-son experience they could share forever and yet Trump wants to stop it.

It used to be associated with Union Major General Joe Hooker, who ran a fairly "loose" army, and for years that was taken as true, but a few years back they found the term does in fact predate Hooker's command.

174 Reading this little blurb about Loki in Fantasy Wargaming by Bruce Galloway and I realize the Soi-ciety set would welcome him with open arms.

Loki - The most willful of gods and will readily betray both his votaries and the other gods on little more than caprice. Morally flexible, he is nevertheless beguilingly handsome, and extraordinarily powerful in magical matters. His wife is Sigyn, their son Nari; by other unions he is father of the goddess Hel, the Midgard Serpent and the Fenris Wolf, and mother (!) of Odin's eight-legged steed Sleipnir.

Just think what Woke Marvel could spin out that little bit. On second thought, let's not.

That epochal period gave us lots of words, of course. One of my favorites is "shoddy".


Name for the a grade of wool fibers, which were used to make Union Army tunics. In the first recorded "defense procurement scandal", the contractors provided inferior material - the word "shoddy" became associated with "poorly made".

I shall try to hijack this thread back into an etymology thread.

Slav, slave, relates to Italian schiavo. The word "ciao" derives from schiavo (I am you servant, your slave).

Also, in German cabbage is Kohle and Slavs are Slavs, so I think coleslaw just means the way Poles make cabbage salad.

Alternate take: people use the persuasion that is effective on them personally, not understanding that it only pisses other people off.

I think French is the kind of guy who *is* stampeded by fears of being thought less than completely holy, and makes every decision based on his weird notion of: "What would be the most self-righteous thing I could say about this?"

It's old-school Puritan virtue-signalling, circa 1690. It hasn't aged well.

It also doesn't help that French looks like a total perv and his constant refrain of bringing up his African adopted daughter makes me think the poor kid is going to have a complex.

256 Rock-Solid:

As a Nam vet I sympathize ... to a point.

I survived to see the sacrfices of my fellow warriors tossed asside. I spent years bemoaning those losses. Then, one day, a fellow vet asked me this: "Do you think all those guys would have wanted even more American casualties, just to justify their own losses?"

Damn.

Since then I've looked on American adventurism differently. Totally support Afghanistan and Iraq invasions --- until (as in Nam) it was clear we wouldn't be allowed to win. ROEs, half-stepping, more worried about collateral damage than enemy casualties, and all the petty BS I saw in Nam. Then it was time for us to get out. And STAY out.

So ... how many more sacrifices must we make ftor the Kurds - and for how long --- should your sons and/or daughters (and my grandkids) be committed to the cause? And, while you ponder that, consider the following:

1) Xenophon's history of the Greek mercenaries return from Persia has them fighting KURDS to get through the mountains.

2) Look up the history of Kurdish terrorism in Turkey through the 80's and 90's --- nobody would have supported them.

3) The Kurds are not the good guys we believe. Yes, they are admirable warriors and (for those with a warrior ethos) their cause appears attractive. But, they have been perfectly capable of defending themselves for millenia --- and perfectly capable of turning against allies in their own time and of punishing 'innocents' who get in their way.

I understand the concerns of you and your buddies still in theater - but the issues arey far deeper and much more complex.

A lot of people don't know this because he hates to bring it up, but David and Nancy have actually adopted a little African girl into their family, which should be an example to us all. I hope he doesn't mind my pointing it out, because I know he prefers to keep quiet about it, but as a fellow decorated Army Vet, I feel compelled to point this out.

So while I think he's (mostly) wrong on Trump, I deeply respect his humility. I don't think he ever even mentions his military service, honestly. That's true decency.

322 "one who or that which hooks" in any sense, agent noun from hook (v.). Meaning "prostitute" (by 1845) often is traced to the disreputable morals of the Army of the Potomac (American Civil War) under the tenure of Gen. "Fighting Joe" Hooker (early 1863), and the word might have been popularized by this association at that time (though evidence is wanting). But it is reported to have been in use in North Carolina c. 1845 ("f he comes by way of Norfolk he will find any number of pretty Hookers in the Brick row not far from French's hotel. Take my advice and touch nothing in the shape of a prostitute when you come through Raleigh, for in honest truth the clap is there of luxuriant growth." letter quoted in Norman E. Eliason, "Tarheel Talk," 1956).

330 277 Seriously though. What is the origins of the word hooker?
Now I'm falling behind. Someone's probably got there.
Civil War General Hooker had camp followers. Girls came to be known as Hookers'.
Posted by: Bandersnatch at October 21, 2019 08:04 PM (gd9RK)

For a good part of the war, Hooker was in command of the troops protecting Washington, DC. There were a lot of them, but they had little to do, so they were always running off into town to cavort with the locals. Story is that Hooker decided this was ridiculous, to never know where his men were, so he encouraged a large number to set up a camp near his official camp. His soldiers would run off, but at least he would always know where they were and they wouldn't be far.

These camp entrepreneurs became known as "Hooker's Girls", eventually just shortened to Hookers. (there were rumors, never proved, that he personally got a cut of their take)

I was with my scout troop at Antietam battlefield and, speaking in reference to General Joe Hooker, I said that his camp followers were referred to as "hookers" and thus the origin of that term. I received blank looks regarding the term "camp followers", so I rattled off a string of euphemisms -- "ladies of easy virtue, trollops, doxies", and so forth -- and eventually "hoors". At last the lights went on as I cried out in anguish, "Don't they teach you anything in school anymore?"

438 Re French's religious leanings:

He once wrote that he was reared in the Church of Christ and was a member until he converted to Presbyterianism as an adult. The Church of Christ is a small fundamentalist church, somewhat Millenarian and cultish in that it believes only its adherents will not descend into Hell. It's viewed by High Protestants as weird and even more lowbrow than Evangelical congregations. All well and good, but from what French wrote, my guess is he changed sects as a form of virtue signaling so he wouldn't be viewed as "one of them."

That's pretty well the story of how he deals with everything.

We know that massive queries of communication databases via NSA intercepts occurred by contractors and apparently the abuse is still going on. Then you have the Five Eyes stuff where each country was apparently doing Hitchcock's criss-cross and spying on politicians on behalf of their allies which was reciprocated.

I suspect that most Republicans in office in DC are effectively blackmailed on their peccadilloes or bought.

473 Major General "Fighting Joe" Hooker may not be the source of a term for a prostitute, but he is the owner of perhaps the worst prediction/boast in military history. Sometime before Hooker's Army of the Potomac moved out to begin what became the Chancellorsville Campaign, Hooker told reporters, "I have the finest army on the planet. I have the finest army the sun ever shone on. If the enemy does not run, God help them. May God have mercy on General Lee, for I will have none."

Ouch.
Posted by: Gref at October 21, 2019 08:48 PM (AMIL/)


How was he wrong? If anything Chancellorsville and Fredericksburg demonstrate how true it was, in that in spite of extraordinarily terrible leadership, the Army of the Potomac was not destroyed, and never could be, no matter how much smarter Lee was than its leaders.

489 I have contemplated writing David French a note, which I figured was only fair given how many times he has written me and folks like me his notes. I had no intention of being rude or anything; just wanted to ask a few questions and draw his attention to a few items.

I concluded it would be a waste of time. Individuals who are entrenched in their own sense of superiority in comparison with others are typically receptive to no one and usually incapable of self-reflection.

Posted by: DC at October 21, 2019 08:57 PM (/TvO8)

490 Re French's religious leanings:

He once wrote that he was reared in the Church of Christ and was a member until he converted to Presbyterianism as an adult. The Church of Christ is a small fundamentalist church, somewhat Millenarian and cultish in that it believes only its adherents will not descend into Hell. It's viewed by High Protestants as weird and even more lowbrow than Evangelical congregations. All well and good, but from what French wrote, my guess is he changed sects as a form of virtue signaling so he wouldn't be viewed as "one of them."

That's pretty well the story of how he deals with everything.

Posted by: Trump poisoned my cat at October 21, 2019 08:41 PM (iw59Q)

My mom is Church if Christ so a few years ago I experimented with church and went for a couple of years and my little church was pretty much nothing like you described. That said, I do know the Churches of Christ are very, very loosely affiliated. Mine, the pastor was a Jesus is lovey dovey guy about my age with a bajillion kids. Also, he is a giant nerd. The regular pastor before him was kinda liberal but also a Jesus is lovey dovey type. But there are hellfire and brimstone types, too.

Sports and political writers and TV talking heads are all brainless frontrunners, except when there's a lovable underdog story. That's why the Astros will get no respect in this postseason.

The Yankees are always the unstoppable powerhouse favorite of every "national" sports writer and broadcaster in every postseason series they play.

The Nationals are going to be the lovable, scrappy underdogs, trying to win that franchise's first World Series, and DC's first World Series in almost a century, playing against the stats-driven, machine-like team from someplace in God-awful Texas called Houston.

532 The real old time Church of Christ congregations all did shape note singing, which is getting less and less known by the year. But it's a fascinating sub-genre of American Music and had a huge influence on early country music, since the Carter family came out of that tradition. I had the chance to get some exposure to it, and if you have some musical talent it's not hard to pick up, it's just different.

And my personal opinion is that the music is generally much better and takes much more talent to sing than the average church music people have gotten used to. To start with, each piece is an intricate 4 part arrangement that the congregation is simply supposed to know how to do - it's quite enjoyable with a group that can do it. And everything is a capella.

I wasn't dumping on that faith, Robert, to be clear, and if that was inaccurate I accept that. My point was French himself saw it as disadvantageous and possibly putting him into a bad light.

"504 So French grew up C of C. Now I understand him.

He's just an upscale Kevin D. Williamson. With all the same pathologies, but he's more expensively dressed."

That's my armchair psychological assessment of French, Tom. The man is totally self-loathing and cloaks that with his piety.

556 In lieu of substantive evidence provided to the public that the alleged hacks which led to Wikileaks releases of DNC and Clinton Campaign Manager John Podesta's emails were orchestrated by the Russian Government, CrowdStrike's bias has been cited as undependable in its own assessment, in addition to its skeptical methods and conclusions. The firm's CTO and co-founder, Dmitri Alperovitch, is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, a think tank with openly anti-Russian sentiments that is funded by Ukrainian billionaire Victor Pinchuk, who also happened to donate at least $10 million to the Clinton Foundation.

In the future I will give him precisely the time and attention he merits--none. At present, however, he has a good number of people taken in (including some of my colleagues).

To a certain degree, but there are definite regional differences. Here in rural Texas, it's quite normal to be a loud and proud Christian. I'm not a churchgoing guy, but it warms my heart see it.

On the other hand, when I was living in SoCal, someone being loudly Christian was all to often some grifter trying to scam you. Not everyone, of course. But enough that it made you wary.

Etymologies of All the Old-Timey Synonyms For "Whore" Found in the Dungeon Masters Guide "Random Harlot Encounters" Table

From the first edition DMG:

random-harlot-table.jpg

I looked up the etymology of "hussy" in the sidebar and then thought to look up the etymologies of the other words in that infamous City Encounters sub-table.

Here's what I've learned.

N.B.: I might slip in some Gygaxian infras and Cf.s.

"Slovenly Trull

Trull might come from "trollop" or "troll" (see infra) or might come from the French trellier "to hunt."

Hunting for The D? I think so.

Another source says it comes from the German Trulle, which means prostitute. But that, in turn, might just come from "troll" again.

And troll, interestingly enough, might be related to trendle or better yet trundel, which is a wheel or a spindle. Which would make sense when you think about "trolling for fish" while fishing -- maybe the word was originally "trendling" or "trundling," winding your line back to entice fish? Or maybe winding up a fishing net to troll for fish? Which then got shortened to trell or troll?

By the way, the world "sloven" itself is a noun, and can just itself mean an "immoral woman."

late 15c., "immoral woman," later (16c.) also "rascal, knave" (regardless of gender); probably from a continental Germanic source

The roots of sloven are about messiness and untidiness -- and carelessness in dress. Notions that are going to keep popping up in these etymologies.

"Brazen Strumpet"

Strumpet is of uncertain origin, but there are some strong guesses -- but which guess is right, who knows.

One theory connects it with Latin stuprata, fem. past participle of stuprare "have illicit sexual relations with," or Late Latin strupum "dishonor, violation." But evidence for this is wanting and others suggest Middle Dutch strompe "a stocking," or strompen "to stride, to stalk" (as a prostitute might a customer). The major sources don't seem to give much preference to any of these.

Maybe these are all related. Interestingly, "strum" is listed in a 1785 dictionary of vulgar terms:

TO STRUM: to have carnal knowledge of a woman, also to play badly on the harpsichord or any other stringed instrument. [Capt. Francis Grose, "A Classical Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue," 1785]

By the way, "brazen" just means "made of brass," and apparently the expression used to be brazen-faced, which I guess meant so unapologetic about one's behavior that no sign of shame showed on one's face.

"Cheap Trollop"

"Cheap" of course comes up in a lot of these words, in the sense of "low-born" of of low character.

Trollop might come from the verb "to troll," which means a bunch of things that might have to do with either being unclean or prostitution. "To troll," as to entice or lure (as trolls on the internet do, into arguments) actually goes back to 1906, and can also mean "to saunter," which is a way that prostitutes trolling for customers sometimes walk.


"Typical Streetwalker"

Streetwalker is so obvious it's barely worth noting -- it's a woman who walks the streets looking for customers. A cheap prostitute.

But interestingly enough, "streetwalker" didn't originally mean "prostitute," it just mean the average citizen who might be walking on the street.

Typical comes from "type," of course. "Type" in the sense of "kind" and "type" in the sense of "letters formed by an impression" both come from a general meaning of typus meaning "kind, sort, form, impression."

"Saucy Tart"


Tart is claimed to come from a shortening of a greeting to an attractive woman -- either "sweetheart" or "jam tart."

"Saucy" just means "impertinent, flippantly bold, cheeky," and just comes from "sauce." I guess the idea is that sauce is spicy and flavorful?

Mikey NTH adds:

86 "Sauce" means to give back-chat, or lip. My grandfather wrote a letter from Santa Claus to my dad and his sister wherein he mentioned that dad had giving his grandmother some sauce.

"Wanton Wench"

Wench was another one that started out perfectly nice, meaning just "young girl" in Middle English.

It comes from the earlier Old English "wencel," meaning "child, servant, slave." Maybe serf or peasant, they mean?

"Wanton" has a more complicated etymology, consisting of wan and the root word which became the "ton."

Wan- used to be a prefix, coming from the Old English meaning "lacking" or "without" and also used interchangeably as a negation like our own un- is used today. (Though apparently the words aren't proven to be related; un- is itself pretty old, but there's gotta be a connection here, I'd think.)

The "ton" part comes from Middle English towen, meaning "discipline."

So wanton altogether used to mean "undisciplined, unruly," which then became "lewd" and poorly brought-up and ill-behaved.

A "wanton" itself is a noun, too, meaning someone who is ill-behaved, etc.

Also, apparently "to wanton" used to be a verb, meaning "to revel, frolic unrestrainedly."

Although it sure seems like "wan" and "wane" must be related to "wan-," the prefix, there's no acknowledged connection.

"Expensive Doxy"

Doxy, my favorite entry on the table, similarly seems to have come first from an attempt to compliment a good-looking woman as a docke, from the Dutch or German for "doll."

"Haughty Courtesan"

Courtesan does, as you might guess, refer to the court, as in "a lady of the court." Apparently this was used in a sarcastic or joking way, or as a euphemism, like the high-fallutin' sounding "Lady of the Night:"

1540s, from Middle French courtisane, from Italian cortigiana "prostitute," literally "woman of the court" (a mock-use or euphemism), fem. of cortigiano "one attached to a court," from corte "court," from Latin cortem (see court (n.)).

"Haughty" means "haught" -- the high sense of oneself -- which comes from the French haut, which just means "high."

"Aged Madam"

Well, I'm sure you can probably guess this, and I'm only guessing it myself, but
Madam must come from "madame of the house," which would be a completely innocent thing to call a housewife, but gets associated with prostitution when the house in question is a brothel.

The etymology of "age" is more interesting, if you're curious.

"Wealthy Procuress"

Procuress is just the female form of procurer, of course.

Procurer means "one who procures things," or one who obtains or gets things. In this context, it means a pimp, who procures customers for prostitutes.


The word procurer comes from the Old French procureor meaning "agent, proxy, or representative." (A pimp is therefore a doxy-proxy.)

That word comes from the Latin/Roman procurator, "an agent representing others in a court of law in countries retaining Roman civil law."

In France, procureur still means "prosecutor" or magistrate or state's representative in matters of justice, and of course our own "prosecutor" comes from the same general Latin roots, though not, apparently, directly from the French.

One might say that this proves that all government ministers are whores, or servants of whores.

"Sly Pimp"

Pimp is of unknown origin. two guesses:


c. 1600, of unknown origin, perhaps from Middle French pimpant "alluring in dress, seductive," present participle of pimper "to dress elegantly" (16c.), from Old French pimpelorer, pipelorer "decorate, color, beautify." Weekley suggests Middle French pimpreneau, defined in Cotgrave [French-English Dictionary, 1611] as "a knave, rascall, varlet, scoundrell," but Liberman is against this.

Wiktionary suggests it might also come from the German Pimpf,, meaning a young boy. Originally the word was "Pumpf," meaning, with full onomatopoeia, "little fart."

"Sly," by the way, is pretty interesting itself. It maybe comes from the idea of being quick and ready to strike with a weapon.


c. 1200, "skillful, clever, dexterous," from Old Norse sloegr "cunning, crafty, sly," from Proto-Germanic *slogis (source also of Low German slu "cunning, sly," German schlau), probably from base *slak- "to strike, hit" (see slay (v.)), with an original notion of "able to hit." Compare German verschlagen "cunning, crafty, sly," schlagfertig "quick-witted," literally "strike-ready," from schlagen "to strike."

"Rich Panderer"

"Pander" just comes from names used in Chaucer and earlier sources:

"arranger of sexual liaisons, one who supplies another with the means of gratifying lust," 1520s, "procurer, pimp," from Middle English Pandare (late 14c.), used by Chaucer ("Troylus and Cryseyde"), who borrowed it from Boccaccio (who had it in Italian form Pandaro in "Filostrato") as name of the prince (Greek Pandaros), who procured the love of Cressida (his niece in Chaucer, his cousin in Boccaccio) for Troilus.

About Pandarus:

In Homer's Iliad he is portrayed as an energetic and powerful warrior, but in medieval literature he becomes a witty and licentious figure who facilitates the affair between Troilus and Cressida.

In Shakespeare's play Troilus and Cressida, he is portrayed as an aged degenerate and coward who ends the play by telling the audience he will bequeath them his "diseases".


That's all of them -- except of course for Harlot, which gives the name to the table.

Harlot comes from the Old French "harlot" or "arlot," meaning vagabond or (right on the nose) tramp. Apparently earlier French had it as "harlot" or "herlot" and it referred to a either a male or female of low birth -- it used to mean "knave" or "rogue" or "cheat" or "rascal."

Hmm. It might have meant "actor."

Used in positive as well as pejorative senses by Chaucer; applied in Middle English to jesters, buffoons, jugglers, later to actors.

Apparently the word was used by the Bible as a euphemism for "whore" and that's how it came to have its more Dungeons and Dragons-ish meaning.

Also:

The word may be Germanic, with an original sense of "camp follower," if the first element is hari "army," as some suspect.

Here are a couple of more that didn't make the DMG chart:


Slut, as many of these words seem to have started, originally meant "untidy woman," and comes from the Old English slutte, which in turn derives from "sloth."

Whore goes back a ways, and seems to have originally meant adulteress:

1530s spelling alteration... of Middle English hore, from Old English hore "prostitute, harlot," from Proto-Germanic *hōran-, fem. *hōrā- (source also of Old Frisian hor "fornication," Old Norse hora "adulteress," Danish hore, Swedish hora, Dutch Hoer, Old High German huora "prostitute"...


Whore itself is perhaps a Germanic euphemism for a word that has not survived. The Old English vowel naturally would have yielded *hoor, which is the pronunciation in some dialects; it might have shifted by influence of Middle English homonym hore "physical filth, slime," also "moral corruption, sin," from Old English hohr.

Apparently the word survived by being one of Shakespeare's favorite words -- he used it 99 times.

Demimondaine wasn't mentioned in the DMG, but they did get at the sense of it by noting that some harlots might only be occasional ones, prostituting themselves out as they choose.

The word demi-monde means literally "half-world," I think getting at the idea of rich, upper-class people living lifestyles often associated with the very poor:

Demi-monde refers to a group of people who live hedonistic lifestyles, usually in a flagrant and conspicuous manner...

The term was often used as one of disapprobation, the behavior of a person in the demimonde being contrary to more traditional or bourgeois values. Such behaviors often included drinking or drug use, gambling, high spending (particularly in pursuit of fashion, as through clothing as well as servants and houses), and sexual promiscuity.

A "demimondaine" is a woman in this set, often a woman of low birth and little money who trades on her looks and often her sexual favors to make her way in highborn society.

Externally, the defining aspects of the demimonde were an extravagant lifestyle of fine food and clothes, often surpassing that of other wealthy women of their day with a steady income of cash and gifts from their various lovers. Internally, their lifestyle was an eclectic mixture of sharp business acumen, social skills, and hedonism. Intelligent demimondaines, like the fictional Gigi's grandmother, would invest their wealth for the day when their beauty faded. Others ended up penniless and starving when age took its toll on their beauty, unless they managed to marry.

A famous beauty was Virginia Oldoini, Countess di Castiglione, who came to Paris in the 1850s with very little money of her own and soon became mistress of Napoleon III; after that relationship ended she moved on to other wealthy men in government, finance and European royalty. She was one of the most aristocratic and exclusive of the demimondaines--reputed to have charged a member of the British aristocracy one million francs for 12 hours in her company.


Finally: the big one.

We're big kids. We can say it.

Prostitution.

Like Billy Blasjowski, I've always felt you can best understand a word if you Break. It. Down.

1520s, "to offer to indiscriminate sexual intercourse (usually in exchange for money)," from Latin prostitutus, past participle of prostituere "to expose to prostitution, expose publicly," from pro "before" (see pro-) + statuere "cause to stand, establish"...

So, to "put it all out for display, right up front, and make something stand."

Billy Blaze was pretty close, really.

If you're not too bored, you can check out where his preferred euphemism for pimp -- "Love Broker" -- came from.

Spoiler: Broker seems to have come from a French word meaning "trader in wine."

38 A famous beauty was Virginia Oldoini, Countess di Castiglione, who came to Paris in the 1850s with very little money of her own and soon became mistress of Napoleon III; after that relationship ended she moved on to other wealthy men in government, finance and European royalty. She was one of the most aristocratic and exclusive of the demimondaines--reputed to have charged a member of the British aristocracy one million francs for 12 hours in her company.

I have seen Russian hardware and engineering up close at sea - it is shit, double shit, bad. And that was in the 80's when the Rooskies were throwing a lot a money into their hardware. It still sucked. So having them testing flying retarded rust buckets around eastern Europe is pretty unsettling.

May or may not come from haut, as high also relates to hoch (German). All the languages swam around in a linguistic soup, but I have a fixation on the silent gh's in English and their German counterparts.

Night - Nacht
Eight - acht
Freight - Fracht
Slaughter - Schlacht
High - hoch

115 there can only be 14 Grande Madams in the world at any one time, and if a would-be 15th arises, she must challenge an existing Grande Madam to a weekend brothel-management competition.

You laugh, but the whole reason for this chart was almost certainly because Gygax and Arneson got loaded one night in the mid/late 1970s - it's always about the 70s - and charted out a level-progression for ho's.

First, I just have to say, screw story. But mainly this is from a list of interesting encounters your fantasy heroes might have in a city. So the DM would go with whatever type to decide how to present the encounter.

It might result in a robbery attempt, or in a request for aid against some villain, which may or may not even be legitimate. Gygax was heavily inspired by Fritz Leiber's Fafhrd series, where the adventure might start for any number of otherwise normal reasons, and just get progressively weirder.

Schlager is a general word for hitter, beater, whacker thingy. A baseball bat is also a Schlager. (A hit record is a Schlager, too. German economizes on words).

A Schlagende Burschenschaft was a duelling fraternity in which you had to get a duelling scar to become a brother. (the "-end" suffix means "-ing", like "-ant" as in rampant).

Zeug is a general word for stuff, thing, whatsis. I had student say "Schlagzeuger is drummer? You mean the word for drummer is Thing Beater?" He was sold on German right there.

The DM has a framework for the story pre-made, hopefully. The players work through it using their characters, using the idea of the character they are playing to change their thoughts. So in this part of the guide the players are trying to get information from a harlot, and the names/status and percentages of have info/looking for reward/work with thief are guides to the DM on what the NPC harlot's reactions/plans are.

It is unlikely that the goal would be to have sex, since D&D ers are on the unsocial side of the spectrum and it would take valuable time away from the action/loot parts of the scenario. If you tried you'd probably just have to save versus getting rolled or catching the clap without much description.

198 I always thought doxy came from woman who hangs around the docks. Dickens used it in David Copperfield, and that was when I researched and got that etymology, and that always seems to apply to the context I see it, mostly movies and lit. from victorian london, where there are a lot of docks and it would apply well.

I think some words can have a reverse branching etymology, where there may be an early origin but it comes into common use due to a secondary (sometimes imagined) origin. This would be one of those words where maybe it does come from German, but I bet most people using it in the 1800s were associating it with women living and working around the docks.

199 The DM has a framework for the story pre-made, hopefully.

Not if the DM is rolling on this chart. Random encounter rolls are specifically for things the DM doesn't have planned. It is why I've come to see random encounters as critical to RPGs. They drive a stake through the notion that the DM should have anything to do with controlling a story at all.

Posted by: Stephen Price Blair at October 21, 2019 08:58 PM (2lndx)

202 The "harlot" table is part of the random monster encounters table of appendex C in the DMG (1e).
Part of the problem in games such as DD is that the adventure material (or module) is either too constraining, allowing for no player agency, or too open and the players end up wishing they had a direction.

One of Gygax's answers to this conundrum was in the appendices of that book. He created rules and tables have the adventurers face random encounters generated randomly on the spot. There were tables for city/town encounters. Roll the dice and consult the table.

Thus, the DM could send the players through a city adventure full of various encounters, from actual monsters such as giant rats or a vampire, or a human encounter such as a merchant, a bandit, or, indeed, a harlot. The DM could do this without any preparation at all, and just create the adventure on the fly using the tables in the DMG.
Tabletop RPGs haven't taken this approach since then, but many gamers still consider it of interest.
Computer RPGs have taken this "random encounter" concept to the max. It is what they do all the time.

And now you know.

Air Canada Will No Longer Address Passengers As "Ladies and Gentlemen," In Order to Respect the 0.1% of Mentally Unwell People Who Say They're Both, or Neither, or Maybe Unicorns

Jonathan Yaniv hardest hit.

Employees aboard Air Canada flights will no longer greet guests by referring to them as "ladies and gentlemen" or "mesdames et messieurs," which has been typical protocol for years, in an effort to be conscious of gender fluidity.

Flight attendants and other staff will not use the language in boarding announcements, and the company instead plans to replace the standard greetings with neutral words, such as "everybody" or "tout le monde."

There IS no damned gender fluidity. Merely people who demand others indulge their capricious whims.

The ACTUAL number is probably even smaller than 0.1%.

61 Canada went down the drain a long time ago.

They are a local example of what happens when the opposition buys into liberal (ahem, Liberal) dogma and only wants to tweak it.

The Harper government could have used its power to break up the enemies of free speech, but they didn't, they pushed back as mildly as possible, and the Liberals turned the crank rapidly, making the old regime look benign by comparison.

Also note, the Liberals actually did a financial bail out for Big Media, so they're literally taking tax dollars to cover for one party.

They're screwed. Even if Justin from Canada loses, I don't think the lame conservatives have the guts to undo anything or chase down Justin's epic corruption.

He also harbors a dark, dark secret that could destroy him and some folks figure it out.

That would also explain why Allahpundit gets weak in the knees whenever he's brought up. Seriously, this is a guy who *fired* an openly gay advisor from his campaign for the crime of being...gay.

I should not be using "merde" as a mass noun. Make it "tout le merdes".

Also, "le monde" is using the masculine article "le". So triggering assuming "everyone" is male.

Since all of French assumes every noun has a gender, I think we'll have to redo the whole language.

Someone last evening suggested that the young people being mutilated today will grow into time bombs, and I quite agree. A PTSD from which you can never physically remove yourself will lead to violence. Couple the trauma with seismic hormonal issues and there you have it.

I hope it leads to prosecution of medical professionals as well. This is not safe.

And the scandal exploded, Shinseki tried to resign, Obama actually said NO, and this fearless warrior dutifully stayed in place because that's courage, amirite?

389 I recently had the worst (non-weather related) aviation experience of my life which encompasses 40 years of air travel. Air Canada. Just trying to get home from Toronto--a normal two hour flight. 2 cancelled flights. Hours in the airport lounges and on a plane. Had to go through customs and security twice.Terrible customer service. Promises made and not kept. Finally arrived home destination 24 hours after we should have according to original reservation. Apparently social engineering and virtue signalling has become the preoccupation of this company over competence or providing air transportation to paying customers.

Mark Hemingway: Is the Anti-Trump "Resistance" Just the Attempt of the Ruling Class/Establishment/Managerial Class to Give Legitimacy to Their Worldview of Socially-Favored Fictions?

Interesting ideas.

Also, it starts off with a nice little story about a young Mark Hemingway discovering the world is often corrupt and filled with self-dealers. (He learned this at a baseball card shop.)

For some time, I have been trying to articulate a specific idea about how various elites and institutions cover for the political class and how the Trump-era "resistence" was the antithesis of this. Then a very smart friend of mine, thinking along nearly identical lines, blurted this out over email:


I think the world generally, and the world of the powerful in particular, is far less lucid and more incoherent than most assume. The main difference between Trump and his predecessors is that the professional class / deep state / neoliberal order / whatever-you-want-to-call-it is fluent in a language that imposes a kind of regulative fiction on that chaos. Their fluency gives them gives them a patina of legitimacy and not a little power over the less fluent, which comforts some normies but also drives conspiratorial thinking. Trump and a lot of the people around him lack this fluency and have no interest in cultivating it.

I think the term "regulative fiction" is misleading. Those fluent in Nietzsche's writings might get it, but I don't think it's a good word for a general audience, as it suggests this has to do with government regulation.

It doesn't. It is meant to mean that the Ruling Caste has created a simplified story --- a mythology, we could say, a mythos -- which simplifies the unruly chaos of the real world into a more easily-grasped (and very untrue) vision of the world and teaches certain morals and virtues (claimed morals and virtues, anyway) based upon that mythology.

This mythos just coincidentally also happens to justify why they are the only ones Fit to Rule. All aspects of the mythos are designed to, or by happy accident, identify problems (or fictionalized, simplified versions of problems) which the Ruling Caste is uniquely able to solve, due to (here are sub-myths that support the overarching Ur-Myth) of their education, their good taste and judgment their (they never say this but it's obvious that they think it) breeding, etc.



For what it's worth, the phrase "regulative fiction" is borrowed from Nietzsche, or at least his translator.

I think this desperate need to maintain the regulative fiction in Washington is the whole ballgame for understanding what is going on with the Trump administration. For a very long time before Trump, the "regulative fiction" was getting very, very discordant with reality.

Again, feel free to substitute "mythology" or "mythos" or even "Creation myth" or "self-justifying, egocentric personal mythology" for "regulative fiction."

Certainly, the WMD issue and poorly planned wars in the Bush administration soured even conservative voters. And then the Obama administration happened and things got a million times worse, because while the media are as invested in maintaining the regulative fiction generally, they are very interested in it as a partisan and specifically ideological matter.

...

I think voters in no small part voted for Trump because they were sick of being told rosy stories about how the government operates.

He notes that the current project of the beltway priests maintaining belief in their increasingly-bizarre mythos is to paint Trump as a clown who shouldn't be supported, so that their religion has no loud, popular apostate challenging it.

Except they can't do that without asking voters to choose between Trump's behavior and Washington’s preferred narrative of how things are supposed to work, and Beltway types still haven’t grasped that voters decided long before Trump arrived on the political scene that most of what passes for standard operating procedure in D.C. is just as farcical.

Hemingway goes into that, noting, for example, that the public does not credit Pierre Delecto and the rest of the High Priests of the Pro-Government Mythology who are always screaming about Trump violating "norms," because they've known for a long, long time that those claiming to be custodians of our precious "norms" are violating those norms all the time, and often more egregiously than Trump does.

Read the whole thing. It's interesting. I have a point I'd like to make that jogs along with Hemingway's, but it's not quite the same (I don't think), and I'll save that for later.

It just so happens that Victor Davis Hanson also writes about the "norms" the Norms-Defenders claim are so precious to them -- alleged norms which they're viciously abusing every single day.

But, of course, those norms must be sacrificed -- along with actual conservative governance -- to save these supposed norms.

We had to burn the norms to save them, it turns out.


The so-called deep state detests him. An anonymous op-ed writer in the September 5, 2018 New York Times bragged about the bureaucracy's successful efforts to ignore Trump’s legal mandates--a sort of more methodical version of the comical Rosenstein-McCabe attempt to stage a palace coup and remove Trump, or the Democrats efforts to invoke the 25th Amendment and declare Trump crazy, bolstered by an array of Ivy League psychiatrists who had neither met nor examined him.

...

Most of the prominent New York-Washington, D.C. insider Republican pundits abhor him. The creed of a NeverTrumper is that it is well worth the effort to see the current Republican president removed, and his administration imploded--even if that means four or eight years of an Elizabeth Warren, a Bernie Sanders, or a Joe Biden agenda as voiced in the debates. That would likely mean Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, slavery reparations, permissible infanticide in the case of late-term abortions, a wealth tax, and a generally socialist platform, from renouncing student debts to veritable open borders.

Only amid the ashes of Trump's destruction do sober and judicious conservative intellectuals, writers, pundits, think-tankers, and establishment Republican grandees believe they can step in to rebirth the Republican Phoenix, nurturing the rising new party with its once hallowed traditions as exemplified by George H.W. Bush, John McCain, and [Pierre Delecto, scrub-boy and butter-captain at the French "Follies Bourgeiois" bath-house].

...

The Left detests Trump for a lot of reasons besides winning the 2016 election and aborting the progressive project. But mostly they hate his guts because he is trying and often succeeding to restore a conservative America at a time when his opponents thought that the mere idea was not just impossible but unhinged.

And that is absolutely unforgivable.

There's a great more to that essay too.

12 Ace, the term you're looking for is "Myth of Legitimacy." It's the story the elites tell that justifies their elitism. In early civilizations they were connected to the gods; later they had a mandate of some kind from heaven or from the people; then our modern masters' myth of legitimacy was The Competent People, the ones who would handle things so we wouldn't be troubled by a complex world.

At the most basic level, Trump refises to use their language.

They scoff at his simpleton vocabulary, or brand it a "hate" and white nationalism, but. . . he says abortion is killing a baby, not "reproductive health." He says illegal immigration is law-breaking and that it is mostly criminals, not "dreamers."

He slays their myths ever time he uses plain, descriptive language in place of the agreed upon euphemisms.

45 Thanks Ace. I am thinking our public institutions are not the problem, but our quality of citizenry, from elites on down, has really gone down hill. Easy life, poor education, yes those are all factors, but the real problem is the weak-assed unwillingness to forcibly oust evil leftists from polite society. One example: Bill Ayers should still be asking for parole and not spending a rich pension every year. More pertinent examples are people Lois Lernor, Jim Comey or Andrew McCabe.

If Bill Barr lets these people get off, or slaps them around a little without real and serious penalties (should Brennan face a firing squad? Inquiring minds want to know...), well then I mourn for future Americans. This is tough stuff to resolve but we need to fucking man-up.

It's more than that, it is a psychological wound, a grave insult that needs to be replied to. That's where the real rage is coming from, a sense of worth that has been shown to be false. People can stand most anything but not a threat to their psychological base, their sense of self-worth.

51 This is a very good piece, full of insight. This exactly describes what I've been watching with amazement for several days, the absolute Outrage that all Right-Thinking People are expressing about Syria - even though the situation is being resolved without much fighting, with few atrocities, with NO American Casualties, and with wide support from the American People.

And yet the response is OUTRAGE!!!! Why? Because to do it, he had to violate the "regulative fiction" (operating Mythology) of what we're doing in the Middle East. Not to mention upsetting a bunch of pork barrel applecarts.

I realized Sunday that to make the critics case, one had to assume that it was in America's Interest to guarantee a a strip of Syrian land to a small faction of Kurds, to the point that we would physically Go To War against Turkey, even though Turkey's primary goal was to provide a space for Syrian refugees to go back to Syria, and also noting that the Kurds had no real claim to the land themselves.

I suppose it makes sense if you think it's outrageous to ask Mexican refugees to ever go back to Mexico.

53 I've had thoughts along similar lines: that Trump is the rectification of names. The language that we use to describe the world no longer matches reality, and the professional class knows this. In fact, they count on it. Trump is an attempt by the voters to bring how we describe the world and how it actually is back into alignment, and that terrifies the professional class.

I think it's bigger than that because it is happening elsewhere, such as in the UK with Brexit, or in Poland where their leaders are refusing to submit to the EU's demands. The Western world's governing class, made up of a lot of global elitists, has gone to far. People are waking up and fighting back. And in response, these bureaucrats and political leaders are shocked the usual tricks to calm and control the masses aren't working.

81 "I think voters in no small part voted for Trump because they were sick of being told rosy stories about how the government operates."

That's certainly true. I'd come to the point where it was obvious that no matter how cynical you were about government (especially Federal government), you weren't cynical enough. And not enough by a long shot.

And that was the primary reason I voted Trump with enthusiasm. It was a "F*** ALL of you. You and your machine sucks and apparently has since before I was born. I've never experienced competent, uncorrupted government in my life and no matter what Trump does, it'll be better than I've ever experienced."

Trump was SMOD. And by the looks of the D.C. Deep State, academia, MFM, etc. response to him, he really is SMOD because he's blowing up all the fiefdoms just by continuing to expose them.

Trump needs 40 years to undo all that has been done.

84 At some point, hoping Bill Barr does his job is the kind of thinking that got us here in the first place. It would be nice, but by no means necessary, or even expected. Did anyone expect British governors to offer redress for far less vicious crimes in colonial America? Course not.

Yet you can't begin talking about legitimacy without noting that only the relentless and total suppression of speech online- functional monopoly- keeps the whole scam from completely imploding on itself. Speech in America is about as free as in Iran. More: Twitter even has the temerity to silence the President.

Not only does this silence normal people, it is a disturbing corroboration of the claim that a tiny minority have a monopoly over American media. The act of suppression justifies actual white supremacist propaganda, and pushes white Americans closer in that direction.

99 He notes that the current project of the beltway priests maintaining belief in their increasingly-bizarre mythos is to paint Trump as a clown who shouldn't be supported, so that their religion has no loud, popular apostate challenging it.
+++++++++++++
This is a very excellent post, Ace.

And their mythos is, fundamentally, "the government is a force for good and we run it as a priestly class for the benefit of our flocks." Trump is a heretic - as you say, an apostate - who is blowing their theology wide open. They aren't competent. They aren't helpful. They aren't good. The state is not a force for a good.

Conservatives remember that last point. The professional conservatives - the ones *in* the ruling class - have forgotten it or, more likely, never believed it.

Government operations should be a lot like how the Left used to describe abortion: "minimal, constitutional and rare" should be the underlying force of state action - not "the most good for most people" or "helping save people from themselves" or "maintaining my position because the rubes are too stupid to know that I ought to be where I am" or whatever else is worming its way through their high-density skulls.

I don't think that the deep state/whoever are being motivated by ideology, they're motivated by money. The money is available to them from the the high Left whether it's the Chinese, Soros, or other illumanati who also have monetary stake/power tied up in redistributionist collectivism.

I don't think so, at least not universally. Clinton might be - she's a gangster's gangster.

Most of them, I think, are motivated by money only insofar as they don't want to be poor or "working-class." A lot of these people probably don't earn more than a good plumber, but they feel better about their modest means because of the *status* that they get. And the power.

I think it is far more about belonging to the elite (status) and being able to impose their will (power) than it is about wealth.

So I'm not TOOOO late to this thread, so:

>>For a very long time before Trump, the "regulative fiction" was getting very, very discordant with reality.



I think Big Government wants to attain the same state of inaccessibility that happened in science and fine art early in the 20th century. You legitimately have to know stuff to understand the science, the art less so.

Is this also because government is so heavily populated with lawyers? God knows they love them some non-layman's vocabulary. (All moron lawyers are exceptions.)

Posted by: Blonde Morticia at October 21, 2019 05:04 PM (Xm5XV)

155 Well, this is the thing.

Trump is a flawed human being, for certain. He has his problems like we all do. But for a long time now people have been aware that the others in government are at least as flawed as he is, but are slicker about covering it up.

And if there's one thing that an American despises still, its a slick cheat. If you're up front and honest about your flaws, people tend to be ore forgiving, or at least cut you slack. But if you lie about them and cover them up, then people will despise you for it.

So continually trying to portray Trump as a flawed human being does not work. Yep, flawed. But so are you, and you're a hypocriate about it, plus you don't care about me or what I believe in or want to see done.

So the choice isn't between the noble elite and the knuckle dragging troglodyte. Its between two flawed choices, one of whom lies to me and treats me like trash.

We literally know nothing.

Well, not we. We're in a samizdat sort of underground. But the narrative in the real world excludes all facts not approved by CNN, even if CNN has no actual viewers. or credibility.

162 A note on impeachment, discussed in the last thread:

If you would have asked me two weeks ago, I was absolutely certain that Pelosi was going to get the House to vote for Impeachment, just to embarrass the Senate candidates. She and Schiff had it all teed up.

But I will not say that today. I grossly underestimated Pelosi and Schiff's ability to totally wreck their own case, and to make themselves political laughing stocks. I did not believe they could have mishandled this as badly as they have! Instead of a groundswell of opinion, they are cultivating a bad joke - to the point that they're not even all on the same page anymore. Example: today there's an article on Politico about how Schumer is worried that "Trump is going to reveal the whistleblower illegally!!!" (psst Chuck, it's a former NSC analyst named Eric Ciamarella, there, I saved Trump the trouble)

And yet over in the House, Schiff has stopped mentioning the "Whistleblower" completely, and has dropped all plans to have him testify. Because oops, any questioning will reveal that it was all just a deep state op from the start.

It should have been easy to fabricate something to justify at least a House vote on Impeachment - but Schiff and Pelosi are so incompetent that they have even screwed that part up. (meanwhile Nadler is just back to packing his piehole full of food 24/7)

The worst of it is that those that want to return to feudalism are too stupid to realize that there are not enough slots in the aristocracy to accommodate everyone on their side.

Everyone in America has some affinity for royalty because the assume that if they lived in a country with royalty they would be royalty. Americans never ever consider that they might be serfs.

A great deal of it has been obscured and fouled by the filth laid over it by the left. Needs cleansing.

This is consistent with my thoughts on it for some time. These people want to be an aristocracy - powerful without cause. The problem is that an aristocracy requires serfs.

They think they can be an aristocracy and keep the industrial civilization they like living in. They can't. It doesn't work that way.

By the time they realize this, though, it will be too late but they also won't care. As long as they remain elite aristocrat rulers, it doesn't matter. As long as their mud hut is bigger than yours and you throw tribute at them, that is all they care about and want.

maybe not everyone, I do not now, however, when I was in my early years and Diana married chuck, there was some affinity for the pomp and circumstance without associating it with the underlying structure.

When you start studying history it becomes immediately apparent why it is undesirable. However when you are very young and assuming you would be royalty is it not so awful.

237 Beyond the physical violence to come - and I believe it to be inevitable now - we must prepare for the rest of what will happen. They'll blatantly try to lock us out of economic activity, of course. That means we'll need parallel structures if we want to go beyond simple barter (which at first we'll be using). The law is useless, naturally, as at this point we won't be under the same laws as they are; we'll need to work out our own systems here, too, and I suggest it be more than everyone-for-themselves vigilantism if we want to build a functioning society afterwards.

One thing though, and this should be obvious by now but for too many people it isn't: Forget about a secular society. That experiment has failed. Period. It's just a question of whose religion it will be (and the Left has its own, no mistaking it). If we don't maintain that template we won't be able to rebuild anything worth living in.

Going to be ugly and interesting times. I'd be lying if I said I didn't dread it, but...oddly, I also feel a bit hopeful, which is something from me these days.

not much different than detroit.

anyway...this goes back to the very mature liberal talking points of 2009 about roads, bridges, teachers, and firefighters...where America was lucky that the colonists found a continent with preexisting roads, bridges, teachers, and firefighters so that they could become rich, while the stock market is basically dictated by the current population and supply of roads, bridges, teachers, and firefighters. So, basically 2008 happened not because the govt forced banks to give mortgages to illegals, but because we ran low on roads, bridges, teachers, and firefighters because Bush W wasted them in Iraq.

+++++++++++++
I cannot be the only professional-class Trump voter. I'm not in the power class, but I am in the professional class. I suspect there are more people like me out there than we think, but there is no real way to know.

The class thing has been an undercurrent throughout the entire Trump era. During the 2016 campaign, some talking head or other was droning on about how Trump isn't the right kind of rich guy - he's what poor people think a rich guy should be like.

They were right, of course - he isn't a blue-blooded New England/Mid-Atlantic type of rich guy, or a genteel Southern type of rich guy, or a sanctimonious Silicon Valley type of rich guy. He's a brash, boastful, in-your-face rich guy. He is indeed, by their standards, the wrong kind of rich guy.

The point says a lot more about *them* than it does about Trump or his supporters, though.

248 We know the Soviets spent a lot of effort (allegedly more than their physical military) on Psychological warfare and infiltration. This was in influence operations, spying, kompromat, infiltration, cultural sabotage ... and imo it was VERY effective. (still is)


Now we see our own FBI/CIA in a PsyOp to control our own elections, and to run a coup, "dirtying up" Trump, trying to frame him for their own crimes, using the MSM and DNC and foreign governments, and CIA assets. "TopMen" coordinated these attacks across several agencies, and across the private sector (media, Google, other sectors)


So the question is, how many of these cartel like groups are there, how many coordinate with each other, is there any hope of rooting out the rot that is the mafia that runs inside our government, and much of Europe? (and most of the non-Western world)


Hillary's "resistance" may be in the beltway cocktail party mindset ... built on that regulative fiction, but there are more seditious planners and plotters, at the highest levels, imo. Soros has direct control of his dirty empire, and maybe there is no higher level of coordination.


But the Big20 banks have overruled our own AG before ... and the crime syndicates can still run/launder billions through the banking cartel. This is a syndicate beyond just a DC mindset/fiction ... but TheNarrative may offer it all a cult like fake virtue, that their insiders cling to for comfort. The Smugness, it is Thick.

He had to run as an American Nationalist because patriotism is no longer a given.
He had to run against the Media because, while they were always liberal, they were never this fundamentally corrupt. They are worse than Pravda during the Cold War.
He had to run against the Intel Community because we never had the FBI and CIA try to overthrow our government for Democrats before.

He's unprecedented because you broke all the precedents.

This is one of their more annoying beliefs. They truly BELIEVE that they are better read, better educated and have a higher intelligence than the average Trump voter--who they view as mouth-breathing idiots incapable of reading--let alone thinking.

Nearly every Trump voter==no matter their education level-- I know can explain in coherent terms why they like him and the job he is doing, giving specific
examples.

The Trump haters? Not so much. They hate Trump but they can't give you a reason why. They sputter out the usual talking points and that's it.
