The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

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

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


Quote II

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


Quote III

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


Quote IV

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


Quote V

"True Conservatives"

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


Quote VI

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Parable of the Nazi Pizza.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

188 "God made man in his image"

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


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


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


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


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


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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

291 137 Missed the subtext of the "world population is stabilizing" - Africa's population is supposed to go from a billion today to 4.3 billion in 2100 - almost as much as Asia.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fuck. That was so cool.

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

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

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

Depends. The big ones aren't cheap. In fact they're so not cheap the USAF and CIA decided to keep the U-2 in service because even when you count the millions it costs to train a pilot it's cheaper than the comparable drone.

I could go on all day about the crazy shit I saw in Kenai/Soldotna. Our motto was party till it gets dark.

In the winter the motto was party because it's winter. Funny thing about the two winters I spent in Alaska was that they were unusually warm and wet. It would snow, but then it would warm into rain, and we would have to walk and drive in snow covered in thick ice. the Hawaiian express, they called it. Not a fan.

Calgary has lots of attractions. Stampede is coming up, if you like rodeo. Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller is about an hour away, if you want to see dinosaurs. Banff/Lake Louise is about an hour away, too.

Not ashamed? Sorry, MisHum, but I'm going to disagree with you on this one, because I have a High INT Low WIS score child. From age 2-4, Pookette would. Not. Hold. Hands. Ever. And before you say, "Let her face the consequences," the consequences in this case would be getting run over by a pickup truck (almost happened twice) or getting kidnapped (she's a nightmare to try to find in a library). We were basically saving her from being a Darwin Award recipient for two years by using that leash. She kind of gets the danger now, but not enough that I let her cross the street by herself.

Actual conversation from yesterday:

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

"Well, you might get run over."
"And then what?"

"Well, you'll pretty much be flattened on the road, like a pancake."

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

506 Broseidon,

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

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

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

Probably not very helpful. Sorry, man.

522 The state depends inordinately on rich people for revenue.

It gets better - California is considering a forty percent inheritance tax on all estate amounts over $3.5 million up to the Federal estate tax threshold of $11.4 million, including gifts during ones lifetime, and generation-skipping trusts. Houses in decent shape in Silicon Valley now sell for $2-$4 million.

if this passes, if you are worth $10 million, you will be handing over $2.6 million to California when you die.

589 In defense of Broseidon:

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

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

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

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

So cut Broseidon a break.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rain water is soft; doesn't leave spots like my very hard well water does. And the pressure washer would not like the output of a plunger pump.

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

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

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

Is that what got shot down?
Drones cover a huge cost spectrum, yes.
Posted by: navybrat, sometime commentater at June 19, 2019 11:45 PM (w7KSn)

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

They say Iran shot one down in Yemen on June 6th and shot at (and missed) one on June 13th.
Posted by: Ace's liver at June 19, 2019 11:51 PM (h2Bdk)


According to recent reports its a NAVY MQ-4C drone. Wikipedia says it costs $120 million!

718 It was probably a bad idea to make a drone that expensive without stealth tech. Hostiles can target it with little worry of starting a war, no casualties, but the capital loss of such a system is significant.

Aleve or Advil, with food, wait 45 minutes or so, then apply heat pad to the area.

heat dilates the blood vessels, so more medication gets where it is needed.

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

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

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

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

Remaining steps:
INVESTIGATION occurs, and

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

152 You can not have three valid memos telling you what the scope is. Either there is a misinterpretation, or these people are complete idiots. That is like three wills --only one can be valid. You can not tell people "this is the scope" and "that is the scope". It is like keeping two sets of books.

They narrowed the scope with each iteration -

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

292 Suffolk Poll has OrangeManBad at 49% approve. Last time they polled was in March when they had him at 48%. What's interesting on both days they released their poll, Ras had him at 47%.

So whatever they're doing, they're doing it consistently.

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

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

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

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

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

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

...

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

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

Absolutely fascinating stuff to read about. He was a real prick and a nutball, but of course he did great work. Imagine if he hadn't been a loonytune about "the ancients"---I forget the word used for that dead philosophy, the one where they thought the 'ancients' knew all things.

I never did completely understand why Voltaire went balls to the wall to protect his work over Leibnez's but I think it was becasue Leibnez was more convinced of the existence of God as creator of the universe ad Voltaire was being Voltaire.

There's no need for such a cooler for a day at the beach, or fishing on your favorite pond.

Economy is all about scarcity. Resources are subject to scarcity. When corpses become a resource, their dynamics don't diverge that far from money.

The main difference between money and raidable corpses is liquidity.

109 >>There's no need for such a cooler for a day at the beach, or fishing on your favorite pond. Their value is with outfitters who spend days and even weeks in the woods, like for elk hunting, or week-long river trips, that kind of thing. They truly do keep your provisions cold or frozen for that long, and it's worth the money in those situations.

My buddy has one of the monster units. We take it tuna fishing cause it holds a lot of fish and keeps it cold.

We also take it to the Keys and set it up next to the pool. Thing will hold ice and keep drinks cold for 3 days in the blazing sun.

I offered my opinion about his understanding of how socialism has to work.

But it just occurred to me that libs always argue that it was religion that caused war not the people who ran the countries, cults, tribes that went to war.


So which is it? Is it that men are flawed or that specific men are flawed? Because if men are flawed, not just specific men then socialism can't work. If it's only specific men how outrageously coincidental it is that only the bad ones rose to power in nazi germany, cuba, the entire soviet empire, china, laos, cambodia, venezuela.....

I mean it is possible to be theoretically stupid about something, say believing, like a child, that a man could fly if he just flapped his arms fast enough. I mean, I get being stupid in theory, where all you are doing is sitting around the faculty lounge taking a bong hit.

What is baffling is being stupid in fact. Venezuela is happening now. You can see it. Its not a mystery. People predicted this would happen and it did. they did all the things you want to do, the way you want to do them, and the end result was poverty and ruin. Go. Fly down there and have a look.

Its like AFTER I jumped off a building, flapping my arms furiously, and after I hit the ground, and after I was taken to the hospital, I still believe I can fly if I just flap a little harder....your theory is wrong. tragically, catastrophically wrong. Not just wrong in theory, provably and demonstrably wrong.

I think Margarita De Ville has said that the early elections with Chavez were pretty close and almost half of the people did not vote for him. But they are just as screwed as the ones who did.

From what I've heard, the poor thought Chavez was their savior. They were all like, "Let's stick it to the middle class. Fuck those people." You know, kind of like Obama voters.

This is also a clear illustration of why democracy is not a desirable form of government. 51% can vote to confiscate the wealth of the other 49%.

Titanium, maybe, and stainless steel. While expensive, I'm not sure how fungible titanium would be in Venezuela.

Fun fact: you have to cast titanium in a vacuum. Cannot be melted in air, or it burns. I'm going to theorize there are exactly zero places in Venezuela that can cast titanium.

If it's only specific men how outrageously coincidental it is that only the bad ones rose to power in nazi germany, cuba, the entire soviet empire, china, laos, cambodia, venezuela....."

Well, it all starts well. Seriously - many of the early rulers in socialist countries don't see like bad guys. But inevitably the most ruthless rats gain power. And once the biggest rats have dominion, and the government controls everything without limit, that is the end of things.

As soon as you allow for the possibility of unchecked power by any government system, you end up in a disaster.

What you have to realize is people who reject religion tend to embrace it in a different form. The reason leftists have endless excuses for socialism is they're not looking at it in the cold, harsh light of reality. They worship the idea of scientific management the perfectibility of man.

When you compare the reality of capitalism with the utopian vision of socialism, of course reality will always come up a little short.

Marx doubled down on historical developments. He even said that he can't say for definite sure that socialism or communism would follow a revolution. But regardless, it would be better than "capitalism" by not being capitalism.

This is one thing a lot of would-be Marxists miss. Marx wasn't just describing a narrow ideal socialism, but his political-historical theory was trying to describe what would or must happen.

It wasn't meant to be tenuous, a hot-house flower, not to breathed on. Marx meant to be a predictor of history.

That's how broken Marxism is. And that's how irrevocably broken it is.

281 I always say, there are no bad people or countries. look around the world - so many countries with NOTHING, I mean not a resource in the world, have gotten rich, and others, blessed with every resource in the world are poor.

The answer, universally, is shitty government. That is what makes people poor, and the extent of your poverty is directly proportional to the shitiness of your government.

The best is democratic capitalism. When applied it works wonders. Transformational. in a generation you go from poor to rich. Works every fucking time.

An autocratic ruler can do alight if they have capitalism. Say a military junta that allow the free market to flourish.

Socialism doesn't seem to work well, and breeds autocratic rulers like crazy.

Autocratic rulers and socialism = death camps.

This is yet another instance of the progs ignoring evidence that comes before them. When the US economy declines it has *horrific* effects on the other markets in the world. We are not isolated from them, but more importantly, they are *definitely* not isolated from us.

Some of them want to tank the American economy to grease the slide to socialism, without thinking how it would tank even the most robust semi-socialist economy that they laud.

292 I think Marx understood communism to be exactly what it is. A way to concentrate wealth and power in a select few more than capitalism ever could.
The difference between capitalism and communism is that in capitalism, anyone can build a better widget and become wealthy and powerful. In communism, the politically connected wield the power of the state to bar entry into the wealthy class.

Tom Cotton's Statement on Corporations Against Conservative Voters

Below the fold, a video of his remarks.


Many state legislatures across the country have taken action recently to protect unborn babies from the violence of abortion. My home state, for instance, Arkansas, has just passed a law protecting unborn babies after 18 weeks of development. And this reform is not just supported by Arkansans. It's supported by a large majority of all Americans, more than 70% of whom believe unborn babies ought to be protected at or before that stage of pregnancy.

These reforms are the work of the pro-life movement, which fights for the most vulnerable among us every day. The pro-life movement seeks to change the laws of our country in the noblest tradition of our country, working within our democratic system so that our laws ultimately live up to our highest principle: That "all men are created equal," in the words of our Declaration. That all have a basic right to life.

But of course, this is a democracy, so not everyone agrees when or even if we ought to protect the unborn. I understand that. I know there are decent people on both sides of this sensitive issue. We resolve our differences and reach compromises through democratic debate. What should never happen, though, is billion-dollar corporations trying to dictate these moral questions to us. Politically correct CEOs shouldn't be in the business of threatening normal Americans.

But that's exactly what we've seen lately. The loudest objections to these pro-life laws haven't come from the "bottom up"-from normal citizens who happen to disagree with one another-but from the "top down": from cultural elites, and increasingly from giant corporations who wield their economic power as a weapon to punish the American people for daring to challenge their pro-abortion extremism.

Giant media companies like Disney, Netflix, and Warner Media have threatened to cripple Georgia's film industry if its residents don't bend the knee and betray their pro-life convictions.

And just last Monday, the New York Times ran a full-page advertisement organized by the pro-abortion lobby and signed by the CEOs of hundreds of companies saying that legal protections for unborn babies are "bad for business." How disgusting is that? Caring for a little baby is "bad for business."

Now, I get why outfits like Planned Parenthood or NARAL would say babies are "bad for business." Abortion is their business, after all, and they're just protecting their market share.

But what about those other CEOs? Why do they think babies are "bad for business?"

Perhaps because they want their workers to focus single-mindedly on working-not building a family and raising children. All these politically correct CEOs want company men and women, not family men and women. They'll support your individuality and self-expression just so long as you stay unattached and on the clock.

You couldn't find a more perfect example of this than &Pizza, one of the companies whose CEO signed the pro-abortion ad. &Pizza doesn't even offer paid maternity leave to all its employees-but it does celebrate their "oneness" and "individuality." It'll even pay employees to get a tattoo of the company logo. So if you want to be a walking billboard for your employer, &Pizza will foot the bill. But if you're pregnant with a child, tough luck. In the spirit of some of these CEOs, I might call for a boycott of &Pizza and its political correctness. But you could just skip them because their pizza is lousy, anyway.

There's a troubling trend among giant corporations using this wealth and power to force liberal dogma on an unwilling people. As liberal activists have lost control of the judiciary, they've turned to a different hub of power to impose their views on the rest of the country. This time it's private power, located in a few mega-cities on the coasts.

And that's not an exaggeration. The overwhelming majority of companies that lashed out against the pro-life movement in that New York Times ad are headquartered on the coasts, hoping to rule the rest of us like colonies in the hinterlands. More than three-quarters are headquartered in New York or California alone. More than a dozen are foreign companies. Yet those same companies presume to tell all of America what we should think.

And for some reason, this outrage only seems to go in one direction. As states like Arkansas have passed pro-life laws, other states have sadly gone down a different path, stripping unborn children of recognition and protection under the law. States like New York, Illinois, and Vermont recently passed laws declaring abortion a "fundamental right," accessible until moments before birth for practically any reason as long as you have a doctor's note.

We've already begun to see the consequences of these laws, which strain so mightily to defy and deny the humanity of the unborn. In New York City, prosecutors recently dropped a charge of abortion against a man who brutally stabbed to death his girlfriend and her unborn child. They dropped that charge because the pro-abortion law that had just passed the legislature in Albany removed all criminal penalties for killing an unborn child. According to the laws of New York State, that woman's child never existed.

Pro-abortion laws passed in New York, Illinois, Vermont, and elsewhere truly deserve the label "radical." So why isn't the national media covering these radical laws with the intensity they've reserved for states like Georgia? Where are the indignant CEOs who profess to care so much for their female employees? Nowhere to be found, because their outrage is very selective. They don't speak for the majority of Americans, much less for women. Instead, they're actively trying to force a pro-abortion agenda on an unwilling public.

These companies want to wield a veto power over the democratic debate and decisions of Arkansans and citizens across our country. They want to force the latest social fashions of the coasts on small towns they would never visit in a million years. They want us to betray our deeply held beliefs about life and death, in favor of a specious account of "equality." If there's one thing the New York Times ad got right, it's that "the future of equality hangs in the balance" when it comes to abortion. But their idea of equality doesn't include everyone: it omits and degrades unborn babies as expendable, lesser than, even "bad for business." That's a strange kind of equality, if you ask me.

This trend of intolerance ought to alarm everyone, no matter your views on this sensitive question. It threatens democratic debate on this question, and ultimately on all questions.

But despite the pressure campaign waged against us, I'm heartened, because I know the pro-life movement will carry on as it always has, speaking to the inherent dignity of every human life. Not everything can be measured on a corporate balance sheet. Some things are bigger than the bottom line or what wealthy corporations consider "bad for business." The cause of life is one of those issues worth fighting for.

Bonus:

>>>I would be more amenable to the libertarian argument regarding corporations if they were willing to stay the fuck out of political meddling. Once you use your power against me, I'm going to use my power, through my elected representatives, against you.


You know, there's a shareholder lawsuit to be had here. A corporation that acts beyond its corporate charter can be sued by any of its shareholders for acting ultra vires, acting beyond the directives of the corporate charter, the agreed-to purpose of the corporation.

Now, most such suits are over stuff like corporate charity but those suits don't work because of the very malleable concept of "goodwill." If a corporation thinks that donating to Planned Parenthood buys it more goodwill, it's within the corporate charter (as increasing goodwill is always or almost always permitted as a basic function of business).

HOWEVER, moves that alienate half the country, threaten states, BOYCOTT entire states, etc., do not increase goodwill. They decrease it.

Also, I'm 99% sure they don't run polls about this stuff to determine if such a move would increase goodwill or not. I think I know that because I know a guy who does consulting and was asked about this sort of issue, asked by the CEO of a MAJOR, MAJOR corporation for advice (because he thought all the liberal marketing department people and mid-level managers were just telling them their Get Trump opinion, not necessarily reflective of popular opinion).

How major a corporation? Well, one of the blue chips.

Anyway, he started to do a study, and so began looking for previous studies on this sort of issue for a background and template for his own study.

His findings? THERE HAS NEVER BEEN AN ACTUAL STUDY OR POLL DONE ON A CORPORATE POLITICAL POSITIONING MOVE. N-E-V-E-R.

His was the first.

Corporations just make these decisions based on the personal political preferences of the officers and board, and their vague "feels."

Therefore, I think an ultra vires lawsuit could prevail -- just ask them, "and what studies or surveys did you do to satisfy yourself that this was the best move for increasing goodwill, rather than your own partisan desires?"

I can almost guarantee they will not have done one. They'll just say something like "It's the sense I got from friends and from Twitter and FaceBook."

And then go to the jury.

I don't think a judge can dismiss your ultra vires lawsuit if the corporation can't show it did the most basic, and I do mean basic, due diligence in research to determine if its move, supposed in the corporation's interest to increase goodwill, would or would not increase goodwill.

BTW: I can imagine that many corporations actually do increase goodwill from their intended customers by going hard-left. Starbucks, for example, caters mainly to urbanites and those who crave a "European" experience for the mere price of five and a half bucks for a cup of burned coffee. Liberals, in other words, and nominal conservatives who desire that kind of liberal five-dollar fantasy.

Other corporations which serve similar clientele can prove they're acting within the corporate charter.

But less niche, more ecumenical corporations can't demonstrate this. HBO and Netflix, for example. Conservatives use these services in roughly equal numbers to liberals; we put up with it because we have to -- but it does not increase goodwill.

A nice way to get this ball started is a major boycott of one of just one of these big corporations that has to do business with, uck, conservatives. Something that really puts the hurt on them.

That would demonstrate to judges that such moves can in fact tangibly harm a business, and therefore can be ultra vires. Then they could not dismiss an ultra vires lawsuit claiming "Well, liberals like it and conservatives will tolerate no end of degradation from their corporate masters, so, overall, this does in fact increase goodwill."

12 The first thing conservatives need to understand (and I'm looking at you Cucksheders and Libertarians) is that you cannot trust big business any more than you can big government. Neither one cares for you or about you, only their own power and wealth.

What conservatives should understand, but leftists don't, is that business is more accountable and less powerful over your personal life than government. But they're both pernicious and destructive, and neither one is to be trusted.

16 But of course, this is a democracy, so not everyone agrees when or even if we ought to protect the unborn.

Point of order: The abortion issue has nothing to do with democracy or Congress or the Executive branch, at all. The SCOTUS took over the abortion, all to its own, and declared itself the one and only decider of all things abortion. No one else has any real say in abortion. It is an issue that the SCOTUS reserved to itself, and no one else.

Increasingly, over more and more of life, that's how its going. That's part of why I oppose courts ruling over lesser courts and what they can decide on. We do not need to give them any more power, especially as the constitution tells us who has that power (congress).

The reason courts have been used for this stuff is because people who could not get congress or voters to do what they want ran to courts to get it done instead. Over the will of the people.

The answer to that is NOT more court decisions.

A friend of mine got a vasectomy and then 3 years later his wife had to make a very uncomfortable call that she was pregnant. Those of you who have delicate stomachs may want not want to read the following.
Then after the fight, he found out it was his and that the doc had a history of not snipping enough and the tubes had grown back. He'd been shooting live ammo for months.

22 years of paying for a kid that was 8 years younger than his other three... AND college. That is fucking scary.

56 Therefore, I think an ultra vires lawsuit could prevail -- just ask them, "and what studies or surveys did you do to satisfy yourself that this was the best move for increasing goodwill, rather than your own partisan achings?"



That's an interesting peg to hang some kind of legislation on. Because unfortunately, corporations have First Amendment rights also and any legislation designed to make them STFU on politics will almost certainly be shot down in the courts.

Ultra vires as a doctrine has nearly died out -- corporate chiefs seem to be able to do pretty much anything they want without worrying about any pushback from the shareholders -- but maybe its time to reverse that trend through legislation.

Posted by: Cicero (@cicero) at June 19, 2019 06:13 PM (Mouru)

57 Something to remember though: 70 years ago corporations were more or less doing the same thing... but on our side. They ran ads promoting a certain viewpoint about women and men, and marriage and family. Patriotism, Christianity, etc all were not just assumed but promoted in all media, in ads, in packaging for products.

It was presumed that was how everyone ought to behave and anyone who questioned it all was shamed, fired, banned from public discourse, etc.

There was no social media to shut people out from or demonetize, but try to get a book published, make a speech, write a magazine article, make a movie all about how two dudes ought to be able to marry, or that some fella who hacks their bits off and declares themselves a woman should be treated as one.

I'm not endorsing this idea, I'm just pointing out that corporations taking social and political stances isn't new. Putting a rainbow on your corporate logo is new, but promoting some ideology with it is not, it just was ideology we support and agree with.

This isn't an argument that what they are doing is okay, its just a bit of perspective to consider when discussing this. You can't factually and honestly argue "this is new and has to stop" because it isn't. The argument cannot start from unprecedented political involvement or cultural trends.

It has to start from somewhere else, such as an absolute foundation for moral and ethical behavior which you cling to rather than the latest cultural and progressive trends. Right and wrong isn't what popular or traditional or familiar or groundbreaking. Its what is true regardless of culture or time or personal feelings.

Ask at a shareholder meeting, and keep asking. After they mealy mouth the answer, launch a shareholder lawsuit. Straight up - the public company is not your private fiefdom, and you don't get to burn goodwill (which is a substantial portion of any company's book value) on your private fucking causes.

75 "what about those other CEOs? Why do they think babies are 'bad for business?' Perhaps because they want their workers to focus single-mindedly on working-not building a family and raising children."

that may be part of it, but also the destruction of the family attitude, which is Christian/American, and tied to the rights of the sovereign individual.


Abortions degrade the sacred view of family, which not only builds their workers' devotion to company, but turns their consumers toward the globalist doctrine of debt and consumption.


That path of personal satisfaction through new toys (the drug of consumerism, built on unlimited credit provided by the corporations or the government, all fiat money leveraged to infinity) is an addiction that spans the globe ... at least for countries with advanced credit systems. BigFiatMoney is shaping the "New Man", and they will hold all the liens.

I wouldn't get too excited about this approach. If courts allowed corporations to set up golden parachutes and poison pills (which are specifically against the interest of the shareholders and specifically lessen value, as is the exact intent, just to save management's jobs) then I doubt any court is going to take a corporation to task for any of these social stances, not on the fiduciary, or corporate charter, angle, at least.

88 you know, there's a lawsuit to be had here. A corporation that acts beyond its corporate charter can be sued for ultra vires, beyond the charter.

So far that's been a bust. Corporate officers are generally able to present it as branding and marketing. The real solution is for CEOs to start losing their jobs because their wokeness is costing the shareholders money.

Remember when the Target CEO lost his job after hackers took all Target's customer data? A few weeks after that the company at which I was working handed down a set of draconian computer security rules. We went from being unable to get money for security all the way to the envy of world intelligence agencies. I'm exaggerating, but not as much as you'd think.

If you want to get a CEO's attention, fire one of his friends. Pour encourager les autres.

89 no legislation needed, shareholders are fully empowered to file suit.

Shareholders suing a corporation for misusing its corporate assets has basically died under the expanding business judgment rule. Judges aren't suddenly going to be allowing these suits just because a lot of CEOs are shooting their mouths off about politics.

There would need to be legislation to change the current rules. And frankly, this would probably need to come from the statehouses rather than from the fed.

The idea that a CEO or President of a company, can use the Megaphone of that company to espouse a political viewpoint, not in THEIR name, but hiding behind the power and wealth of a company Logo, distorts what Democracy we do have.

117 prosecutors recently dropped a charge of abortion against a man who brutally stabbed to death his girlfriend and her unborn child. They dropped that charge because the pro-abortion law that had just passed the legislature in Albany removed all criminal penalties for killing an unborn child.

A sign should be placed below any New York State Line sign that says "May God have mercy on all ye souls who enter here."

That is the most vile, disgusting thing I've read in a long time.

You can now walk up to a woman in NY who's pregnant, punch her in the belly repeatedly and kill her child and you'll only be charged for assaulting the woman.

124 I didn't know details of the CEOs never doing studies about whether there is goodwill added by certain actions ... but I have long said these leftists at the heads of social media are acting AGAINST shareholder interest.


It is not "muh private company" ... they are a corporate entity with lotsa rules, most basic of which is increasing shareholder value, not pushing the radical left view of the nuts in silicon valley, and stomping on half their customers.



There is just no way that the decision to block all conservatives, defund them, on purely political grounds, was a decision to increase consumer participation. It has been the reason many are lookinng high and low for alternatives, and why we try to find a neutral search engine instead of the Google propaganda machine.

128 Not the worst vasectomy story I've heard.

Over on American Digest, Vanderleun once posted a story about a guy he knew in CT who had a vasectomy (at the behest of his wife, who then ran off with the roofer), then later fell in with an English lady who wanted him to get the vasectomy reversed (so they could have a kid together and thus smooth the path to her getting U.S. citizenship), so he did, and suffered three days of agony (this was the '80s and reversing operations were a bit cruder then).

Turns out the operation wasn't successful in the fertility department anyway, though, and so his English lady friend up and left him. Such is life.

Posted by: Deplorable Ian Galt at June 19, 2019 06:12 PM (ufFY



I have to say, I enjoy the jam-packed approach of "Ozark" plotting and episodes,

as opposed to the usual 13 episode borefest where only 5-6 of the episodes really matter and the rest are about secondary characters and ruminating over the ramifications of the previous episode that really mattered for 2-3 episodes.

In short, more action is more better for serial TV drama.

142 Its pretty obvious that any movement which promotes the murder of children is not one any sane or ethical person can even slightly defend or promote. Any organization that attacks families, men for being men, and the very idea of worshiping God is in the same boat.

There was a time in my youth when the Democratic Party was merely confused, mistaken. They were wrong on economics, but they were trying to find solutions to problems. Their approach on how to help needy people was wrong but it was an attempt to help people in need. And they had some good points, like how we should be more careful with the environment and work to reduce pollution.

But today? Today they seem to stand for evil on one position after another. Not mistaken. Not confused. Not misinformed. Evil.

It's pathetic and dangerous and cannot go on much longer as it has.

The idea that you can have a pool, put a 15 foot fence up around it, with barbed wire, and some kid cuts the fence and illegally trespasses on your property and then dies in your pool like a spaz, you are held liable for his illegal actions against you and you have to enrich his family. It's beyond crazy.

With this sort of an insane notion of "liability" no one is ever safe in this society. And juries are happy to return judgments of $47.32 trillion dollars for someone who cut his nose off with a hack saw because there was no warning on the blade not to cut ones nose with it.

Maybe I'm skeptical because my mind instantly goes to these ideas and - investigate? Investigate what? We don't like what they're doing, but there's certainly no law against it. (the issue of a shareholder lawsuit for diminished value is a private matter) Also - legislation? He's in Nancy Pelosi's Congress. Name anything Tom Cotton could propose on any issue that won't get laughed out of Congress by Nancy 30 minutes after he proposes it.

So this is an issue where there currently are NO options except to talk about it and inform the public, with the goal being to build up enough of a movement to take back Congress and THEN maybe talking about taking away some tax breaks or something.

Sadly, there is a rational business case to be made to silence the US Right.

Most of the world's government hates the US, and its the RIGHT that makes the US strong.

They know the Left will cave and be multinational and weak, so they pass laws inhibiting free speech within their own countries, and make the US Rights speech, against their laws.

So, in order to do business in places like Pakistan, or China, they must 'censor' the views of the US Right.

199 I told my client company to take me off any of the Pride or Gay corporate emails. You would have thought I told them I wanted to kill my baby or something.

My reasoning was that I found it offensive as a Christian and they were making me feel unsafe. I also mentioned if they were going to allow that type of email, then they had to give equal time to the opposing view or the general Christian faith. "Why can't we have an email supporting Holy Month running up into Christmas and the Chriatening?

Dumb looks all around, because they know if I sued, I would win. They also can't fire me, especially now because I am demonstrably a good employee.

By the way, I have zero animosity towards gay people. We just disagree and that's OK. They are still my brother or sister irrespective.

The worst part of this corporate culture war is these giant companies with bottomless resources are attacking normal beliefs; gun ownership is a Constitutional right and a huge part of American culture, and not celebrating the death of babies is simply not being some sort of murder worshiping monster.

If the issue is simply Fear, that's actually a fairly easy response to figure out. (maybe not as easy to implement, but still)

Someone who operates from a position of fear simply needs to be shown that he needs to be MORE afraid of you than he is afraid of the first bunch. Of course, words won't do for that kind of thing. Lessons need to be taught, harsh, physical, brutal lessons.

EVERYONE.

One day off, a vacation from social media, that's not so much to ask, is it? One day. No pinterest, no instagram, no twitter, no mewe, no facebook, youtube, gab, none of them. Don't even go to the site.

And make it well-known. Give it a name, like Social Media Sabbath or something catchier. Take that day off, everyone, and make sure social media businesses understand that's what is happening.

Could even extend it to other things, like television, streaming, and movies. One day.

Surely we can manage one day, right?

Because if we ALL did it... that would be noticable on their instant-reporting data. A big trough in the chart, each week. And that might get somewhere in their brains: wow there's a lot of them and they're letting us know....

We consider it legal. I'm just not so sure. After all, people (courts) have used the Constitution to punish private citizens and businesses for all sorts of discrimination and violation of civil rights. So clearly it's not just the government that the rules must be applied to.

And while I might be libertarian enough to support the notion of an extreme understanding of our right to freely associate *or not* for any reason, our courts and current law specifically disagree.

So the question isn't if it's the State or a Private business but if it's a civil right or not. And I don't see any real way that rights specifically listed in the Constitution wouldn't apply, even if we haven't applied them yet.

Later on we added Age and we're currently arguing about Sexual Preference.

But Discrimination is allowed for everything outside of those narrowly defined protected classes.

322 You can argue that we made a huge mistake in 1964 by creating Classes of Protected Citizens and Unprotected Citizens, but here we are.

Well that was one of those incremental Stare Decis arguments where the principle that the government has a responsibility to protect the public, and that the public is damaged by ill will toward certain groups, so the government has a responsibility to protect these groups and... well anyway.

326 The State wants the power over life and death and everything in between. It has always been thus. The Great Experiment was an attempt to make the people the sovereign in the hope that the people who choose to not oppress themselves. But alas, the people seem only too eager to oppress themselves in the hopes of not having to take responsibility. It takes a special kind of person willing to give up being taken care of and being willing to bear his own life burdens.

333 89 . . . Shareholders suing a corporation for misusing its corporate assets has basically died under the expanding business judgment rule. Judges aren't suddenly going to be allowing these suits just because a lot of CEOs are shooting their mouths off about politics.

There would need to be legislation to change the current rules. And frankly, this would probably need to come from the statehouses rather than from the fed.
Posted by: Cicero (@cicero)
_________

The business judgment rule is a presumption that a board of directors made even a stupid decision in good faith and with due care.

However, there are a number of states which have attempted to codify the business judgment rule, but (probably unknowingly) have placed the burden on the corporation's directors to show that they exercised due care. So now instead of a court's presumption that a board knew what it was doing, that board has the burden of proving that it knew what it was doing.

Cry havoc and let slip the servers of process.

337 Rights are innate and inalieanble: they are part of being human and cannot be taken away. Even if you are gagged and silenced, you still have the RIGHT to free speech. You're just being unlawfully and wickedly prevented from expressing that right.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at June 19, 2019 07:02 PM (39g3+)

Natural Law, I understand. But all "Rights" under Natural Law are limited when they come into conflict with the "Rights" of others. For example, I may have the Right of Free Speech, but I don't have the right to go into your house at 3 in the morning and start shouting. (just to provide a ridiculous example) Because that conflicts with YOUR rights.

What we define under Government and Law are those things which we allow our Courts to adjudicate, which are generally those areas where different sets of "rights" conflict. Natural Rights exist outside that framework, but you can't enforce them in a Court of Law.

Maintenant je rampe et je fait le beau
Quand elle me sonne


Now I crawl and and I act the gentleman
when she rings me


J'étais chien méchant, elle me fait manger
Dans sa menotte

I used to be a wicked dog, she makes me eat
out of her little hand


J'avais des dents d'loup, je les ai changées
Pour des quenottes

I used to have the teeth of the wolf, now she has changed them into baby teeth

Je m'suis fait tout petit devant une poupée
Qui ferme les yeux quand on la couche

I make myself very small in front of (?) a doll
who closes its eyes when it's laid down

[note: Really it seems like it should be "like a doll" but apparently the lyrics are "devant," in front of. I don't know this usage]

Je m'suis fait tout petit devant une poupée
Qui fait Maman quand on la touche

I make myself very small in front of a doll
who plays mama when it lays it down

J'était dur à cuire, elle m'a converti
La fine mouche

Kinda. You still have the right, its just understood that the expression of your rights cannot interfere with the proper and vital expression of other people's rights. Your right to property is absolute, but you cannot exercise it in a way that starves me to death, because my right to life is absolute as well.

Rights are in a sort of hierarchy in this understanding: life is paramount, liberty, then property, then expression, etc.

Actually, you your example the rights do not conflict.

You have the right to free speech, but you do not have the right to be on my property.

The real problem IMO is the diluting of what a Right actually is.

Like, there is no Natural Right to vote. Voting is a POWER given to you, through our form of Government. Without us being a Representative Republic, there would be no vote at all.

But once they conflated Powers, with Rights, it opened a Pandora's Box to where ANY Power, can be made into a Right, by Judicial Fiat.

372 Again, this was back when there was no "science" as we know it.


The Renaissance scientists actually benefited by the thinking of the scholastics who were religious. Thomas Aquinas and others were among the first to suggest that man could know about the world using reason. He then very carefully set up ways to examine subjects and "reason" through them. His argument was that man was made in the image of God and in so being had the faculty of reason which God intended him to use. Without the scholastics, there would have been no Renaissance and no eventual Enlightenment (which was arguably flawed.)

Newton thought that the "ancients" had already developed some of the stuff he was working on, like calculus and that it had just been lost. Strangely he didn't share his work with hardly anyone because he thought everyone was too stupid (a sentiment I find appealing). In fact, Leibnez was also discovering calculus but he didn't have the advantage of Newton's lobbyists and Voltaire went out of his way to discredit Leibnez, that's what Voltaire satirized in Candide.

390 Your right to property is absolute, but you cannot exercise it in a way that starves me to death, because my right to life is absolute as well."

Actually, under strict Natural Law standards - if I have food, and you have no money or goods to offer me for it, then I have no obligation whatsoever to provide it to you. In fact I can use force against you if you try to take it from me, even if you're going to die without it and I don't really need it. Strict Natural Law is very Darwinian.

And that's why societies develop religions and governments and laws and social structures, because most people really don't want to live their lives under those strict terms.

391 Again, this was back when there was no "science" as we know it.

Sure, and that's a fascinating time to consider. Alchemy is really interesting because they had an awful lot very right, but misunderstood so many fundamentals it was leading them in very strange places. I personally think that's where we're at with science; the frontiers have been pushed so far that they're probing into areas they understand too little about to even speculate so we get a lot of daffy ideas thrown out there.

397 The same elite judges who determined that federal courts will determine the legal status abortion decided they would be the arbitrators of all sex and gave us homosexual marriage.
Another company, 3M, has sent out an email every year to make sure we are all aware of a "gay pride" march in Minneapolis. This year they are adding a "Rainbow Day" in the company plaza a couple days earlier.
However, because the growth targets were not met and the stock tanked they are in cost cutting mode so we won't have an employee celebration where every fifth year of work starting at 15 we get a meal with the spouse and entertainment from an older musical group. This was my year to sit at the 40 years of service table with the few others still around.

428 >>>Dude, is your French really good enough to translate like that? That's impressive.

no, I have to look up words here and there. "Ramper," for example, I have known, but forgot (it's to crawl).

I had to look up "se tenir" because this kind of pronomial verb is idiomatic; while I know what "se" means before a verb in most circumstances, these idiomatic uses cannot be figured out. I should have probably known that one, though.

I did know "Poupee" was doll and that dur a cuire means hard-boiled, though. Dur means hard, and a cuire is what you say when you want your meat cooked well-done. "A point" is medium (at the point) and... I forget what rare is. It might be like sange/bloody or something.

and I knew all the verbs and stuff, the je n'avais jamais and all j'etais.

Those are the continuing past, the past we use when we say "I used to" or "I would..." in the past. Like, "when I was young, I would walk in the woods," quand j'etais petit, je marchais dans le foret"

that's a good conjugation because there are only like three irregular conjugations in it.

I don't get the "devant" in the poupee lyric and wordreference.com doesn't offer any meaning besides those I knew, "before (physically)/in front of."

I think maybe the lyrics might be mis-transcripted?

Trump, Jr.: So Biden Says He'll Cure Cancer If You Elect Him President.
Why Didn't He Cure Cancer In His Past 50 Years of Holding Elective Office?

Maybe he was permitting cancer to continue killing people in order to hold it over our heads at precisely this moment.

While warming up the crowd at President Trump’s re-election rally in Orlando Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr. took a few swipes at the Democratic frontrunner.

"I hear brilliant guys like Joe Biden," he said to the fired-up crowd of some 20,000, "'Government has failed you.' Usually, as he's groping someone."

....

"There’s something off with that guy," Trump Jr. added. "Maybe yo'’re the problem, Joe Biden?" he suggested, referencing his decades in government -- a record which could cause the former vice president problems on key issues like the Hyde Amendment.

The president’s son also ridiculed Biden’s promise that he would "cure cancer" if he was elected president. "Why the hell didn't you do that over the last 50 years, Joe?"

Don Jr. also dubbed Joe Biden with a Low-Energy nickname -- "Floppy Joe." Which I don't think is meant to recall only his flip-flopping.

Earlier in the speech, Trump identified former President Obama taking credit for the good economy as the "stupidest statement in the history of politics and economics."

Trump continued by explaining Biden's "vested interest" in China, telling the crowd, "His son took $1.5 billion from the Chinese government as investment."

"The greatest investors in America have spent years trying to get Chinese money to invest with them. They can't do it. He goes there on a state trip and in ten days he comes back with $1.5 billion. Wonder why?" he said. "Now they're not a threat."

Trump then engaged the crowd with a little "role reversal" game.

"What do you think would be the media's reaction if Donald Trump Jr. took $1.50 from the Chinese? Not $1.5 billion like Joe Biden’s son. Just $1.50."

"They would lose their goddamn minds," he declared before hitting Biden for flip-flopping.

"But you know? Floppy Joe-- Floppy Joe, he's out there flip-flopping on everything. He doesn’t know what the hell he stands for anymore," Trump said, adding that the media will not call him out because "they want him to win."

Not to be outdone by Biden only deciding to do something about cancer after taking a wait-and-see-attitude about it for fifty years, Trump himself promised that the administration was close to curing cancer itself, as well as eradicating AIDS.

President Trump said during his 2020 reelection campaign kickoff speech late Tuesday that his administration is "getting closer” to curing cancer.

"We will push onward with new medical frontiers," Trump told a packed stadium of 20,000 in Orlando, Fla. "We will come up with the cures to many, many problems, to many, many diseases -- including cancer and others -- and we're getting closer all the time."

Trump also made a campaign promise of eradicating AIDS "once and for all," adding that "we’'e very close."

Oh, it's a promise? Was Joe Biden's statement a promise, or just puffery?

That said, there's a lot of promise that AIDS is a disease with a limited future and we might finally be getting cures to many cancers soon.

Alas, we've seen such hopes before. That's why I barely mention them any longer. I don't want to get hopes up.

But still, there are promising new drugs and techniques out there.

By the way, Joe Biden is a leftwing authoritarian. It's that "authoritarian" part that the leftwing media confuses with "being conservative," but it's just that Joe Biden never saw a problem he didn't think some government strongarming -- finding "pretexts" for government coercion -- couldn't fix.



But that's not "conservative" -- that's just lunchbox leftism.

I hate that idea, which many leftwing prosecutors also have, that laws are infinitely malleable and that we can just contrive whatever "pretext" we like to jail people who are doing things we don't like but are doing things which no law has been passed to outlaw.

If the law is undefined in this way -- if it's all up to a leftwing prosecutor's whim and readily mutable by the imaginative and unscrupulous -- then we are not a nation of laws not men, but men not laws.

One of the only things we have protecting us from the whims of politically motivated officials looking for professional advancement off jailing a citizen is the idea that laws mean what they say, and say what they mean.

Not that a clever operator like Andrew Weismann can twist plain meanings and make the law whatever he needs to collect his next political scalp.

The most immediate route to tyranny is granting a prosecutor the power to prosecute people not according to the letter of the law, but whatever he is capable of imagining the law to be in his own mercenary, careerist, status-seeking head.

The law is written in the statutory code, not sketched in penumbras and emanations of a corrupt politician's private dreamjournal.

And PS, they're almost all corrupt, and almost all prosecutors are politicians, or hope to be politicians officially one day.

I'm Trumps case its sloppy language and chain of thought expository speech-making which he's done a lot of and gotten caught on before.

Taken as it was delivered it was "lots of great stuff is coming in my America" with lots of frosting on top.

I'm less glad at seeing so much money and time poured into it while Cancer was being largely bypassed. At one time at least AIDS research was getting like 20 times the money as cancer research, which was killing like 100 times as many people a year.

But cancer didn't interfere with many people's lifestyle and desire to have as much sex as possible with as many people as possible so they never have time to stop and thin about how empty and pointless their life is.

79 >>>56 Kinda hard to "cure cancer" when its a constellation of different types and causes.

well, yeah, but I think one method of killing a lot of cancers, if it could be perfected, is finding a way to microtarget (or nanotarget) cancer cells only with chemo, rather than than exposing the whole body to it.

Not only would that avoid the horrible side-effects of chemo -- which acts as a poison in healthy cells too -- but it would allow you deliver much more lethal doses to cancerous cells, so you'd have a much lower chance of leaving any behind.

I think that's a major thrust of research. Tagging them somehow, or creating something that only cancer cells can suck in.

The woman who cured HPV cancers used a method along those lines, though I forget the details. And you'd have to adapt that sort of thing to other cancers, which wouldn't be just like HPV cancers, but the Proof of Concept has been demonstrated.

well, yeah, but I think one method of killing a lot of cancers, if it could be perfected, is finding a way to microtarget (or nanotarget) cancer cells only with chemo, rather than than exposing the whole body to it.

Not only would that avoid the horrible side-effects of chemo -- which acts as a poison in healthy cells too -- but it would allow you deliver much more lethal doses to cancerous cells, so you'd have a much lower chance of leaving any behind.

They're doing that with radiation, too. A robotic device called CyberKnife uses data from an MRI to precisely fix the size, shape, and location of the tumor, then moves around and hits it from every angle while leaving healthy tissue alone.

117 No research is wasted, and a lot of the techniques revolving around AIDS research also have fed into Cancer research

Sure, but that also works in reverse, and stopping people from dying from cancer would be a HUGE impact, plus would have helped research on AIDS. Instead we got the opposite.

Posted by: redridinghood at June 19, 2019 05:11 PM (RBOtF)


My doctor stopped taking new patients last year. He's unhappy with the direction things are taking. "I can retire any time I want," he said, "but some of my patients have been with me for decades." So as patients move on, or die, he's going to cut back on his hours instead of replacing them. Already he doesn't see patients on Fridays.

Imagine if just ten or twenty percent of doctors did that? I once had a crappy health plan where it took five or six weeks to see your primary care doc. They probably saved a lot of money, too, since by then you're usually either better or dead.

It is the 'targeting' concept that is the key.
I remember investing in biotech companies like Transgenix, which were researching monoclonal antibodies, and breeding/cloning mice (and goats, in Trangenix' case) to produce specific antibodies for gene therapy. Now, any time you see a drug with the last letters 'mab' - that's a 'monoclonal antibody' probably developed from that technique.

Government research into anything pretty much institutionalizes whatever the heck they are researching for all eternity - without ever hope of a solution.

Reason being, in business, R&D usually needs to become a product or service; in government the funding only needs to last until retirement of the recipients of research money.

If a researcher for business finds a cure for cancer, he can retire wealthy. If a researcher in government finds a cure for anything, he is out of a job and broke.

164 Pam Geller's site has an article up about an illegal alien (from Mexico) homeless asshole who followed a partially paralyzed woman and her 3 year-old kid from their mailbox back to their apartment. Asshole didn't know the victim; it was just a crime of opportunity. Saw a vulnerable, disabled woman who couldn't defend herself, and pounced.

Illegal asshole raped the woman (who uses a wheelchair), and took an Alford plea when caught (basically admitting guilt). He was sentenced to 12 months, of which he served 9 months (all but one day in pretrial detention). He was released on the condition that he return to Mexico, but instead of going home, the asshole illegal alien returned to his victim's home and beat her up (remember, this is a partially paralyzed 30ish woman in a wheelchair), choked her and gave her a concussion. And yes, there was a restraining order that he stay away from the victim, for all the good it did her.

This happened in "sanctuary city" Seattle. This is the kind of vermin that the leftists fuckwits are protecting, instead of protecting actual citizens, who are the illegals' victims.

But it basically means anyone can be sent to Alcatraz if a prosecutor really wants to.

Everyone here has probably "fudged" on their taxes, so if you ever piss off a prosecutor enough, they could put you away in the worst prison on Earth for life.

Now did Al Capone deserve to be there? Of course, but it's a slippery slope.

Sort of like why Manafort is rotting in a prison has nothing to do with his tax returns, its that he was Trump's campaign manager for a few weeks.

Had Manafort never involved himself with Trump, no prosecutor would have gone to those lengths to nail him for something silly.

192 i dunno about that. People with cancer require multiple years of expensive treatment. A treatment that was a knockout punch, even if very expensive, would probably be cheaper or not much more expensive when you add up all the years of less effective treatment.

193 >>>167 Cancer isn't just one thing. Every type of cell in the body can become "cancerous" and can become cancerous for several different reasons. There will never be a single cure.

well, but there might well be families of cures.

Exploiting the differences between cancer cells and non-cancerous cells to deliver something that's only poisonous to cancer could work on a host of cancers, even if you have to use a somewhat different method of doing that for difference cancers.

Right, you know that for every Manafort there are 50 guys they could have gone after for the same thing. They were trying to get someone who'd flip, but found out there was nothing to flip ON, and ended up just trying to punish people for daring to help and elect Trump.

228 The Al Capone case isn't a good example, because it WAS illegal to cheat on income taxes, and Al Capone WAS guilty of that crime. The Feds just hadn't enforced it that zealously before, but the law was clear.

What is so highly objectionable is when Prosecutors like Weissman (and he started off doing it in the Enron case) invent completely new and previously unaccepted "theories" of law to make previously legal behavior illegal - such as suddenly insisting that "Obstruction" can be a crime all by itself, even when it's not connected to any other crime. That is a perversion of what the Law was understood to be for the 200 years before Weissman and his cohorts came up with that "theory", and it should never have even been considered, much less allowed.

276 No one wants to declare themselves a foreign agent because then politicians won't talk to you, and that's the whole point of being a foreign agent, to talk to politicians on behalf of your client.

Its actually worse than that.

You don't have to register under FARA if you are representing a foreign company, just a foreign government.

But they are now going after people who represented Foreign companies, who they then say are controlled by people Associated with Foreign Governments.

So by this standard, everyone who has something made in China, should have to register under FARA, as everything there is somehow associated with the Chinese Government.

Holy crap, unless I'm reading it wrong we haven't had a budget passed in this century.

279 >>>They can't solve solvable problems so they claim to be able to solve very difficult problems.



yeah, and it's a standard Democrat play to show that you have a
"vision" by proposing obvious but fanciful futurist-type programs. They
all model themselves on JFK, following the example of the moonshot
promise.



and then they explicitly reference that, a la Biden's "cancer moonshot."

A lot of legislating fixes can be traced back to california and the smog problem. Politicians and bureaucrats mandated less smog. Luckily the catalytic converter was invented and NOX levels dropped. The pols and bureaucrats then though they were gods. It was a bad precedent.

280 Can we cut out the make-believe bullshit? Nicole Brown Simpson was banging Ron Goldman. The "sunglasses" were simply the Maguffin. Why the fuck would she need sunglasses just that night? It could have waited.

I never tire of talking about the OJ trial but had to miss the end of the thread, so here's my additional 2 cents: the glasses were Nicole's mom's glasses, and they may have been prescription glassed. She had called the restaurant looking for them. The manager found them and Ron kindly offered to drop them off on his way home, lik
