(Frankie)

Been lurking since the early days... occasional poster... I'm Sapguy from Dallas.

Everyone knows that the kids always suffer the most in a divorce. Well below is my beloved Finnie who is now with my ex-wife. She is a 12 year old Nova Scotia duck toller mix and a better dog doesn't exist. She lives on the other side of the Country and so I only get pictures of her now and then. I miss throwing the ball for her terribly. She never met a pizza crust she didn't love or a squirrel that she didn't want to catch. I can't think about her without tears...


I couldn't take the silence without her so I found a friend to help me get by. This is Frankie, a miniature Aussie. He loves to play fetch as much as Finnie did, and keeps a constant eye on my every move. Every night he has to get some pets before he will lay down at the foot of the bed... he gives me joy just by being around. God gave us dogs so that we had role models.


Gorgeous animals Sapguy> It's a bummer that you lost custody of Finnie, but Frankie appears to be a special pup.

Thumper and Snowball.jpg

Greetings WF Pet Thread,

You have featured my personal pets, but I thought I would share my work pets: Thumper and Snowball. I work running a school at a residential treatment center for abused boys. About 3 years ago we were trying to decide on a therapy pet for the facility to be used in treatment with the boys. Two years ago our CEO came in one day with 3 baby rabbits - sadly Gizmo, the third bunny, died last year. They were not being used for therapy at all, so we decided to use them to teach the boys job skills. The boys apply for a Bunny Caretaker position, interview, and train to take care of them at night and on weekends. In the past year since my best friend and fellow bunny lover retired, they have become my bunny boys and I have too much fun with them throughout the work week. They are sweet, funny, and loving little fluff balls who just celebrated their 2nd birthday this year on Easter Sunday so they are real Easter Bunnies! Thanks for the Pet Thread - love it as always! - Cindi T.

Not only are they cute and cuddly pets they are also Feel Good Stories. What an awesome idea for the pets and the young men. Thanks so much for sharing!

MH, This is Gunner. 6 year old yellow lab. My youngest son is a hunting enthusiast. He saved up his money to buy Gunner when he was 16. He then trained him to become a push button pheasant-grouse-waterfowl hunting dog as well as a super house dog. I'm really proud of him for how Gunner turned out. Gunner lives with us as his Dad is a senior at university.

Gunner was a little out of sorts last week so we took him in for an exam and blood work. We were thinking Lymes again. We got the news yesterday that it was a super aggressive form of acute Leukemia. Not treatable by chemo. Dogs with this diagnosis typically live days to a few weeks.

My son is coming home Friday and we will put Gunner out of his pain Saturday at 11 am. Our hearts are broken and we will miss him terribly. We will all hold him as he passes. Until then, Gunner always has a person snuggling him or giving him treats.

I'm not sure this is pet thread material or not. It's a downer. But if you want to use it, this is an experience we all share in some way, shape, or form. I mentioned this in comments and there was a cathartic response from several people who went through this sort of thing. Up to you my friend.-Maud'dib

Yeah, it's a downer. But we are pet lovers. And we understand the pain and heartbreak one goes through in these circumstances. Nothing wrong with venting we are the Moron Horde, that's what we are for.

Long time Lurker here. Some months ago I sent you a picture of my black cap conure Hugo Whistler. This is Bronwyn our beautiful Senegal. She was a shy and quiet lady. Hugo is the rowdy one. She was pretty much a one person bird ó that person being me. She used to ride on my shoulder while I cooked. But slowly she began to just stay in her cage and only occasionally come out. The short story is that it turned out she had epilepsy. We took her to Cornell where they have a fabulous veterinary school. We got medicine for her and spent a year and a half giving her her medicine and a very nice life. I sat with her on her last day, wanting to be with her when she died. But, she refused to go until I left the room. Sheís buried in the garden and thereís a plaque there to commemorate her. Itís very hard losing a companion bird. But she gave us lots of love and lots of joy.


What a colorful and beautiful bird. She had wonderful people taking care of her up to the end. Pets they give so much and expect so little in return. Condolences on your loss.

This photo is from several years back. I can't recall exactly when. I found this back half of a rabbit on top of the dry crap I serve the cats everyday. The one with her back to the camera put it there, apparently as a hint of what she'd prefer to find every morning. The grey cat minding his own business wasn't even tempted to steal the rabbit, as he knew that he'd get beat into the middle of next week if he touched his sister's kill. - Ingrate.


Well, we finally got our technical skills to match. Sorry it has taken so long to post your pet photo. Quite the brunch buffet there. Thanks for the submission.

19 I'm very sorry to hear about Gunner. He is beautiful. It's heartbreaking. I am dealing now with when to "pull the plug" on my 13 1/2 year old black lab. Absolutely gorgeous pure bred show dog (I never showed him) with two champion parents. Calmest, most affectionate dog ever. He has severe mobility problems now due to arthritis and throat inflammation which makes breathing difficult. He only gets up now to relieve himself (on our deck) or eat. His vet said as long as he is eating (he is), in not too much pain (he is on pain meds), and not actually pooping or peeing on himself (which she said would upset him greatly), we can just keep going, so that's our plan.

20 Our Rosie-cakes had to cross the bridge about a month ago. Her kidneys simply stopped, and she was, at long last, a nice skinny dog again, after a life of unmitigated chow-hounding as only a beagle can do. She is immortalized in the Horde Cookbook as the beagle who ate 6 pounds of cheese taters and pork chops after stealing it from the fridge. That included glass shards from the casserole dish she shattered in the process. She also opened the fridge and took a nice 8 lb fish that was marinating so I could smoke it. We would come home from where ever we had gone to find the fridge door open, a smear of grease on the floor, and Rosie looking like she ate a basketball. I personally find it remarkable she lived to be as old as she did, considering her proclivities.

Still, it was very sad when she passed. Life with Rosie-cakes was never boring.

28 "Dog is Man's best Friend" was a quote from the great trial(s) regarding the killing of Old Drum in Cass County Mo., in 1869.
The trial attendance was too big for the Cass Co. Courthouse, so they were held in Johnson County (Warrensburg). Still a statue of the dog there.
Brightest legal eagles were on each side in the final trial.
Made international news.

34 Need help. Lily the beagle has once again started eating her own poop. She stopped for 3 years and has started up again. Only reason I can see is because we changed her food. She now is fed a duck blend with much higher protein then the crap Science Diet she had been getting. She has food allergies and we finally found a food that doesn't make her throw up.
We have a basket muzzle on her, actually 2 of them tie wrapped together so that she cannot reach her poop in the yard. We try to clean up after her immediately but do fail on occasion.
Anyone have this problem and have a solution? Due to her food allergies we are hesitant to try any of the additives that can be sprinkled on her food.

39 Muad'dib, deepest condolences over the loss of Gunner. Our furry friends don't live as long as we do, and it's even harder when they're taken before age can claim them.

Cancer, I hate him.

40 Amazing pet thread, as always.

Gunner is a beautiful dog. I am so sorry for you and your son Muad 'dib. We lost two dogs in the past three months, and it was awful. We are only now coming out of the depression from it.

Hug your dogs, feed your cats whatever they want, cook with your birds, because each day with them is precious.

As for poop eating, some dogs just do that. Just dog give them kisses when they come in from the yard, smacking their lips. Ask me how I know.

Posted by: Moki at June 15, 2019 03:40 PM (mFoNl)

41 "Man's best friend", in my opinion humanity's greatest accomplishment. Thousands of years of selective breeding creating a bewildering array of forms for countless purposes--even if just to be companions.

And somewhere along the line, I daresay they changed us. For the better.

42 Our dog has horrible allergies so we feed her merrick limited ingredient canned duck. Zero problems since. Never had the poop problem but we walk her and pick poop up immediately with a bag.

Posted by: NCKate at June 15, 2019 03:44 PM (cWedi)

43 Basement cat. Thanks for the link. Will discuss vitamins and enzymes with the vet when Lily has her shots.
washrivergal. Will continue to clean up after her. Forgot yesterday and paid the price. It's most difficult for our dog/house sitter. She also works from home, our home, when she sits and she cannot always do the follow-up poop patrol.
Vigilance and the muzzle definitely helps.

Kira used to help me fold laundry. I'd take a batch out of the dryer and put it on the bed. I would start folding one shirt and she would come over and sit on it. I'd go to the other side of the bed, start folding a second shirt, and she would sit on that one. I'd go back to the first one, finish folding it, and start on a third. She'd come back over, sit on that one, and I'd go back to the second one...

61 Love the birdie story. Amazing how she waited for her mom to leave so she could move on to the beyond, sparing her mom the pain of watching her go.

I had three budgies, the first beautiful one I got I regretted almost instantly because I saw how morose he was being away from his flock. So I then acquired another beautifully feathered female bird, and when she joined him he perked right up.

Her name was Honey Bird, she passed away and I made a little casket for her and buried her in the animal friend plot at my boyfriend's house. Her beau eventually joined her there. I love birdies so so much but I can't stand to see them caged, that's why I won't get another one, not even the adorable little parrotlets.

63 Ben Had. Lily's problem wasn't itchy skin. It was throwing up constantly. I'm not comfortable with beef. Supposedly it is one of her trigger foods. She only eats duck, salmon or venison. Duck works best.
Happy that the raw diet works for your pet.
I do know one thing for certain. Science Diet is awful. Expensive and didn't solve the issue. We have friends who train shepherds and they suggested the food change.

66 We have been adopted by a cat that showed up on the farm over a month ago. This is definitely not a farm cat. He prefers house cat life, periodically going out to get high on the wild catnip that grows all over the farm. I hope he is capable of catching mice this winter, but I have my doubts. He had a severe panic reaction to a paper bag. Dumped here? The vets and shelters have no missing cat reports.

She likes to paw at me to get my attention and tell me she loves me.
But she doesn't realize how big her paws and how long her claws are (I will get them trimmed. )
Anyhow she left a lovely scratch on my arm.

I've learned Jack's is a private club and somehow the Blues players ended up there from an invite of a local. The rookie got to playing "Gloria", went back to the locker room with the bright idea that it should be their fight song, and they went worst to first.

It's that daggone Philly magic, the Blues were sort of the "Rocky Balboa" of the NHL. I'm happy for them.

My friends moved into a marginal neighborhood in the city. Their one AA neighbor would always call out "White Boy!" when my buddy used to leave his house, or it seemed that way anyway.

Finally friend approaches his neighbor and says: "you iknow I have a first name, it's Paul. You don't need to keep calling me White boy."

The neighbor laughed and said, "oh I know your name...I was calling my dog!"

Saturday Gardening Thread, How's June workin' out for ya? [KT]

iris 2.jpg

Hi, Gardeners! June is supposed to be a great gardening month. Is it for you? Anyone dealing with flooding?

The striking photo above is from Admirale's Mate in Andover, MA. Can you tell what kind of iris it is?

Edibles

Anybody planted watermelon? Be prepared. From my creative niece brigade.

cut up fruit.jpg

Fruit season should be revving up in the San Joaquin Valley. Early cherries are done. Our Apriums are gone, and most of the commercial apricots are probably gone finished, too. This is a better climate for peaches and nectarines than for apricots, because summer usually heats up pretty early.

Any local fruit on where you are?

Carnivorous and Native Plants

Another Pitcher Plant from our carnivorous plant specialist, Tony Litwin. I expect there are some bugs in the pitchers this time of year.

S. Flava ornata

7-)S. FLAVA ORNATA.jpg

And something different from Tony, a native wildflower. Not carnivorous:

Just thought everyone would like to see the Rain Lilies Zephyranthus Atamasco that popped up on my property after a violent thunderstorm we had the other day. Seems here in Central Florida, they only do that after an extreme heavy rain and thunderstorm which makes them bloom, and then when they are done in a week or so, they disappear again until next year. Last year they didn't appear at all, and this year they are putting on quite the display. Hope everyone enjoys them as much as I do.

Although you can get them thru a native nursery, they grow wild and these are a wild colony. What's funny is that I also have them growing haphazardly over my lawn with one here and two there. They also grow along roads around here until they disappear in a week or so.

They are one of the few native wildflowers here in central Florida. Not common but a joy to see when they appear.

Rain Lilies Za.jpg

What a nice surprise! You can buy other species (and maybe some hybrids) of Zephyranthus (AKA Zephyr Flower or Fairy Lily) for gardens in other parts of the country. Some are white, others yellow or pink. Some will bloom repeatedly through the season with intermittent watering in mild winter areas.

A while ago, The Invisible Hand sent in a native plant on a different scale. I'm pretty sure it is Romneya coulteri, the biggest wildflower in California. Sunset notes that it is difficult to propagate (from root cuttings or seeds) but difficult to dig up once established. Don't need much water once established. There are two named varieties. There is also a species or subspecies with hairy buds.

They can be invasive where there is summer irrigation. Especially in light, sandy soil. They spread by rhizomes. They make good cut flowers. You can cut the plants back in fall nearly to the ground. You can consider a root barrier to keep them from getting too big.

Look kind of like fried eggs, don't they? So do the Prickly Poppies, which are usually grown as annuals.

romneyaa.JPG

Botanical Gardens

Keena sent in the following intriguing plant photos last week:

Our visit to the San Diego Botanic Garden this week showed that the Sapphire Tower plant from Chile was blooming. It's a gorgeous color. Kind of a teal/turquoise with these bright orange stamen. I've never seen a color quite like this before. Really beautiful.

saphfl.jpg

Closer view of the flower

saphfl2.jpg

Very unusual. Looks like they may have some other unusual plants at that garden, too.

Meanwhile, a few weeks ago one of my nieces went to the 300 year old Magnolia Plantation, with low country gardens and critters, in Charleston, SC.

magnoliaplantation1.jpg

Ever wanted a big porch?

magnoliaplantporch.jpg

Like they said, low country.

magnoliaplantbridge.jpg

Careful.

magnoliaplantgator.jpg

Prey?

magnoliaplantpeacock2.jpg

Gardens of The Horde

S. Lynn sent in a good idea for a bulb cover a while ago. We will be discussing later what to do with bulbs after they bloom. If you have any experiences to share, please do.

The bachelor buttons that seeded from last year help cover the dying leaves from my bulbs. Great little accident. Glad I didn't pull the seedlings out last winter.

Our garden is automatically watered this Spring.

Or washed away.

Some of both.

I am doing a trial 3-sisters plot with mounds for corn, squash and beans (and volunteer tomatoes, peppers and a single sunflower popping up in between) where my compost heap used to be. The corn and squash is taking off, but the beans are lagging.

27 Awesome iris ... nice display of bachelor's buttons ... hiding old bulb leaves. I leave my bulbs' leaves till they turn brown, which gives them time to store energy to make it through next winter.


Lots of rain here so watermelon and cantaloupe went in late, added more cantaloupe seed a couple days ago. Strawberries fading but lots of raspberries from canes saved from last year, and more canes for fall crop (as I understand it). My picking speed matches my eating speed on raspberries, but didn't notice a stink bug once ... they are numbing on the lips ... managed to spit him out without biting in, but felt almost like a bee sting.


Lots of mowing and weeding so far, in between rain rain rain. cheers to you producers of all things horticulture.

Posted by: KTbarthedoor at June 15, 2019 01:50 PM (BVQ+1)

29 the only thing I can figure to do with bindweed and thistle is to keep the weeds down by only spot irrigating, raking the soil regularly to uproot all the small weeds as they sprout, and use a shovel to dig down next to the bindweed or thistle as they pop up.

When they are sprouting from a stub of a root, as they always do, there is always a cluster of weeds growing up.
I don't think it is possible to kill bindweed, but you can make it pretty depressed after a while.

There was a book called "Greener Than You Think" by Ward Moore in which a modified burmuda grass took over the world. I think about that when I think of bindweed.

Posted by: Kindltot at June 15, 2019 01:53 PM (hSQmw)

30 That's a purple iris.

Of course, that's not the Latin name, which escapes me at the moment.

Posted by: ALH at June 15, 2019 01:57 PM (ekljB)

31 KT, a fun thing to do with Tiny Rubies is to pass your hand over the plant while it is in bud. All the little buds hit your fingers in a fascinating way. Plus, the blooms have that lovely clove fragrance.

Posted by: Emmie Oakley at June 15, 2019 01:57 PM (4HMW8)

32 Looks like Siberian iris, based on the bloom shape and foliage.
Japanese iris typically has small to non-existent standards (upward-facing petals).

We have a neighborhood invader that a woman some years planted (then moved), called sweet autumn clematis (C. terniflora). Laughs at roundup.
I use a weedkiller with triclopyr in it, and it knocks it dead, and doesn't kill the grass.

61 Temps have been cool in NoVA, even with a few hot days. Also good amount of rain. A native Dutchman's pipe somehow showed up a few years ago and I haven't been able to get rid of it. I have a few plants of Cobra's Eye iris and enjoyed them for two days before a day of rain reduced them to pulp. Earlier my azaleas didn't fare much better for the same reason. I am not quite at the "there's always next year yet" but not far.

65 MarkY, these were planted some time in the last century, but there are far nicer roses than these on the market. An arch would be wonderful if I had anywhere to put it.

My sister got bored a couple of years ago and took these roses all down to the ground, and they were back up in a couple of years, and are now a hazard again while I am mowing. A lot of the old houses and old farm houses especially have a rose thicket that started out as a rambling rose on the fence.

Nothing like last year. The hummingbird mint seems to be taking its time coming up, the other perennial flowers look kind of puny...but at least I'm seeing pollinators, that's a good thing.

The soil needs to rest for at least a week anyway, right?

If you use clear plastic and it's sunny during that time, might help raise soil temp enough to kill some weed seeds too.

Win-win.

Thread before the Gardening Thread, June 15 [KT]

Serving your mid-day open thread needs

Happy Saturday!

The Oberlin Verdict

I am still impressed by this verdict against a social justice witchhunt. How about you? Legal Insurrection has done a great job of covering the trial. William Jacobson was on with Tucker Carlson last night, noting that a witchhunt like this could happen to anybody, even off-campus:

These are people who get up at 3 or 4 in the morning [to go to work] when Oberlin students are just getting home.

As Steven Hayward asked, "Will Oberlin learn its lesson?" Short answer: No, they won't.

His long answer involves course descriptions from their department of "Comparative American Studies". Where the Dean shown in the photo above, who caused so much trouble for the school, previously taught.

What is comparative American studies? I suspect at Oberlin it means comparing the United States to Nazi Germany and finding the U.S. coming out the worse.

I like the title of his second "sample" course in this department:

Visible Bodies and the Politics of Sexuality

Hayward goes on to give us quite a bit of information about the Social Justice Warrior Dean who encouraged the witch hunt against the Gibsons. You would probably enjoy reading it at this point. The bit about antisemitism is quite disturbing to me.

But these details explain a lot about why the jury hated Oberlin.

Do not send your kids to a school in this state of civilizational decline.

The fight against the left must continue

A Democratic Socialist city councilwoman has been elected in Denver who stated:

"I think that we're in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn't work and we have to move into something new, and I believe in community ownership of land, labor, resources and distribution of those resources," she continued. "And whatever that morphs into is I think what will serve community the best and I'm excited to usher it in by any means necessary."

Whatever that morphs into? By any means necessary?

It is remarkable to me that someone with David Horowitz' background, the son of communist Jews whose family came from Russia, would write a book about the Left's current crusade to destroy Christianity. Focusing in particular on LGBTQ bigotry:

Vice President Mike Pence and Trump's gay ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, are leading a Trump-inspired global campaign to end the criminalization of gay sex and gay relationships, but you would never know it from the hate that gay "civil rights" groups are directing at them. Pence has been singled out by leading Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg as a dangerous bigot -- not because he actually is a bigot but because he holds traditional Christian views of gay marriage, which offend Buttigieg and the gay vigilantes. When Buttigieg announced he was gay and introduced his husband in 2015, Pence went out of his way as the governor of Indiana - as Buttigieg's political rival -- to praise him for his public service as mayor of South Bend.

Being able to hold opinions that others find offensive is called freedom of conscience or religious liberty, and is the most basic freedom we have as Americans, which is why it is stipulated in the First Amendment to the Bill of Rights. It is the most basic freedom because without the ability to hold dissenting opinions and express them freely you can't defend any of the other freedoms you have. The sin committed by Vice President Pence that gave Buttigieg the license to demonize and defame him was his signing of a bill to protect the religious liberty of the people of Indiana. . . .

I like this quote:

To totalitarian leftists, religious liberty is the freedom to worship according to the values you believe in, but not to advocate or live by those values; they have redefined tolerance as a mandate to force people to act against their beliefs if those beliefs are at odds with the prejudices of the left. These are anti-American ideas and they constitute a determined attack on America's pluralistic culture - a culture and respect they hypocritically demand for themselves but refuse to afford to others. These attacks have already corroded our national dialogue and created divisions so deep it is problematic as to whether in the long run our nation can survive them.

Music

So, the two last items got me thinking about Russia. Here's Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture, complete with cannons. If you are ready to get directly into the fighting spirit, you can start at 11 minutes.

"And whatever that morphs into is I think what will serve community the best and I'm excited to usher it in by any means necessary."

I think Churchill's take on Democracy works well on riffs like this. Capitalism is the worst form of an economy, except for all the others. An economy and a civilization will function best when based on a contract with rules that have to be followed for it to succeed. We are in the land of the ruleless, now, so no type of government or economy will work properly.

34 Maybe Oberlin is right. Bear with me.

Penalizing Oberlin may hurt students who had nothing to do with the harmful actions. So, penalize the students themselves -- and that dean. Make them come up with the $44 million, personally.

No, the college won't learn, but those people surely will -- and so will the would-be next people.

40 Maybe Oberlin is right. Bear with me.

Penalizing Oberlin may hurt students who had nothing to do with the harmful actions. So, penalize the students themselves -- and that dean. Make them come up with the $44 million, personally.

No, the college won't learn, but those people surely will -- and so will the would-be next people.

For myself, I would rather see a few dozen individuals experience thorough ruin in front of a nationwide audience than see an institution get bruised for a little while.

Funny thing about capitalism, it's like water. You can try to channel it, control it, dam it, redirect it, or turn it off.

It will always find its own channel, it's own pathway, because in a very real sense, humans who think we can control it, are just deluding ourselves.

So the only way to shut it off... capitalism I mean, not water, is to start actively killing humans. Really, there's no other way. Everywhere socialism has been tried, capitalism seeps through, one way or another. You have to kill people to stop them from engaging in it. There's no other way.

78 "I think that we're in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn't work and we have to move into something new..."


I think it is zombie that has said "capitalism" is a term made up by the Marxists. it is a way to frame our freedom in terms of economic oppression, where BigMoney rules.


And I keep saying, "we are NOT a capitalist nation", because capitalism is not a government system. Communism is a government system that owns (or controls) all levers of commerce. American Liberty was designed to NOT let government control commerce, EXCEPT to the extent it maintains liberty for the individual ABOVE CAPITALISM. Free markets occur under the umbrella of liberty, which includes the Bill of Rights.


So we need a lot of laws to stop the likes of Google/Twits/FaceBook from censoring/punishing certain groups (Christian/AmericaFirsters). We need laws to promote choices (anti-trust laws) ... and laws against "knee-capping" the competition (lawfare against gun makers). Economic Warfare has been controlled by (globalist) WallStreet since at least the 90's, and they have even framed our military policy for their interests (and IMF/BIS/etc.)


America stand for Liberty ... the proposition nation, it does not stand to enrich the stock/bond market, even if that is done by using slaves and polluting in foreign/enemy countries. Government gets involved in strategically managing foreign trade. .. on behalf of the American People and maintaining said Liberty ... not fighting wars on behalf of globalist interests, or to "Save the Economy".


Oberlin is fighting for the myth of global fairness, so individuals must be destroyed. The vast settlement was standing for American Liberty (for those individuals and their enterprising virtues) ... not for "Capitalism". imo

As co-chairwoman of a task force charged with revamping
Oberlin's Sexual Offense Resource Guide, Raimondo helped draft an
extensive, non-mandatory policy in 2014 that called on faculty use
trigger warnings in their lessons.

"Anything could be a trigger-a smell, song, scene, phrase, place, person, and so on," the guide read. "Triggers are not only relevant to sexual misconduct, but also to
anything that might cause trauma. Be aware of racism, classism, sexism,
heterosexism, cissexism, ableism and other issues of privilege and
oppression." It also instructed professors to "Remove triggering
material when it does not contribute directly to the course learning
goals."

At trial, Raimondo was revealed to have sent a text reacting to Copeland's letter that said, "Fuck him. I'd say unleash the students if I wasn't convinced this needs to be put behind us."

When the bastard was caught, it DEFENDED itself, saying it did it to "raise awareness."

131 "Academic administrators tend to "fail up".

We made the globalist oligarchs so friggin rich (bailouts for billionaires, that are running billions in cartel money) ... that they can make sure any failures get big compensation for fighting on behalf of the globalists (CNN is full of such "failures" like Brennan/McCabe/Clapper, or others like Lerner/Hillary). It has been (till now?) the whistle blowers that get punished, those exposed are advanced.


The SJWs are not really failures, they performed a mission for the far left globalists, and while a few may have paid a price for going over some legal lines, they advanced the cause and are heroes ... it was a broad victory in academia, with only a very few casualties (massive casualties on our side).


So the Oberlin woman was pushing the limits, went far over the line, such "noble selflessness" must be rewarded, by the Soros type overlords. Even though the legal decision was a sound defeat, it was a small battle .. but hopefully an indication a tide is turning. Oberlin Woman did not "fail", she was a hero SJW obeying orders, her generals must reward her.

A Soros-backed group, including former governor Ed Rendell, enabler of Penn State pedos, is trying to install these safe injection sites in Philadelphia. Their big problem, besides opposition from the neighbors, is that the US Attorney for the district is a Trump appointed prosecutor. And safe injection sites violate fed law.
If those sites are put in place while this US Atty is in office, they will be cleared in a matter of days.
Ed Rendell is a big old hairy POS.

But the drooling, rabid, braindead youth they've raised are completely ignorant of the means and tactics for a Marxist takeover of a democratic country, because they are products of those tactics, and they're not supposed to understand.

So the freshmen kids are doing out saying "Green New! Deal!" and "down with the jews," "down with the whites," "impeach now!" and so on. And now this CdeBaca in Denver is demanding full communism in public.

184 Unbelievable. Donica Varner, Oberlin's General Counsel, and the same idiot that sent the letter to alum telling them how stupid the jury was, prior to the punitive damages phase of the trial, claims qualifications including "23 years of litigation experience."


I looked at her resume. It was unimpressive. Reading between the lines, it looked like she'd spent several years doing low level insurance defense-type work before moving into some government position. So, dog bites and car accidents, probably. Hardly the type of experience that would qualify her to evaluate a complex, big money lawsuit.

A nation founded on liberty is not based in greed or envy. But any American with above average savings wants the bloated/leveraged stock market to keep going up, and has most of their savings put to work by these same globalists that are out to destroy our liberty.

They are watching your reaction to these ads through their cameras. It's automated, I don't mean someone is necessarily sitting there at that moment watching you. It is a burgeoning technology and it is 100% real and being implemented in cities and towns across the country as "news kiosks". I have no evidence it's happening at ATM's right now but they have a camera there, and if there are ads happening at these places now, it certainly stands to reason.

They can tell if you are happy, sad or angry. And what your race, gender and age is. This is being done like all the social media intrusions with the excuse of "the advertisers want to know". Eventually... not sure when... you will be punished if you don't react in an acceptable way to what is shown to you. Perhaps a woman saying she wants an abortion. Or two men kissing. Or president Hillary doting around in one of her fine robes.

That's another thing with advertisers, and the gay pride push is an example. Ads (unless it's for a niche) should have the broadest possible appeal while focusing on their demo, and not offending those outside it. IOW, they're like pop music - bland, boring, and uniform. It's why there's always a trend in ads, because they move with the broader culture.

But the major ad agencies have become Leftist, progressive bubbles with a large number of gays, SJWs, and assorted other loudmouthed radicals on staff. They never travel outside their deep blue cities except to visit deep blue boardrooms and tourist destinations. They've lost touch with the broader culture and the trends in advertising recently reflect that.

Not two years ago, Gillette was running that excellent ad with the disabled NFL player and his dad. Very normal, uplifting ad about family, adversity, and manhood. Not two years ago.

Affirmative action is Oberlin's main selling-point: they were among the first colleges to recruit PoC students, back around 1850. Derb would call them quintessential GoodWhites.

They are more proud of their student body selection than they are of their commitment to scholarship. When their PoC students team up to rob and beat the townies, their brainwashed administrators can't mentally process the contradiction between their dogma and the reality thrust into their faces.

247 I'm annoyed by this recent trend to use the term "democratic socialism."

It's communism, OK? Let's stop beating around the bush. It's straight up communism. The only difference - and it's one without a distinction - is that adherents of "democratic socialism" putatively want to impose it by democratic means, whereas "revolutionary socialists" don't even bother to pretend about that. They want to go straight to secret police and gulags.

248 That's why I wondered when Varner's employment began. The President, also an African-American female, sent out another defiant letter after the punitive damages were announced. She ranted about fighting Gibson, so those two women have the same mindset, as far as Gibson being bad and Oberlin, good. Would not be surprised if she hired Varner.

Yep. But of course, "any means necessary" includes non-democratic means. Hence prepending "democratic" to "socialism" is just linguistic cologne for the rubes.

That's why I think we need to correct anyone who talks about "democratic socialism" and call it what it is: communism.

In the alternative, in venues where we need to be more polite, we should ask the proponents of "democratic socialism" how exactly that differs from communism.

I also don't think the U.S. has been operating under a true Capitalism economic model for a long time. We are certainly closer to the Fascist model: private ownership of production but subject to the authoritarian control of the State.

Hayek's Road to Serfdom makes the point that a Socialist/Collectivist government ALWAYS has to identify enemies (usually internal) that are blocking the proles from experiencing all the good things promised to them by the Collectivists.

291 The public library of Ames, Iowa has a series of performances that are "drag shows for kids!" in which adult drag queens do sexy dances for very young children. And part of the act is that, just as with stripper shows where you "make it rain" money on the naked stripper (as describd in many rap songs), you're supposed to shower the drag queen with money to show your appreciation for their sexy dance. So, liberal mothers actually take their kids to these shows (in the public library!) and then instruct their 4-year-old and 5-year-old children to hand money to the sexy drag queen

The teacher is apoplectic with rage that the student stated that there were two genders, contradicting the teacher who said that it's government policy that there are many many genders and to say otherwise will literally get you kicked out of school. For the crime of Wrongthink, I suppose.

imo moving some money to a small local bank (in my case at least, a farm community) is a way to deter the globalists. A got a note from the local bank guy when I put some cash there, saying they try to invest/loan locally, which is what I was looking for.


The other thing to do is invest in your own production ... farming, or other means of production. But that gets a lot more complicated than just throwing money into globalist mutual funds and approving of government killing anything that gets in the way of BigProfitMargin. heh

310 I called Fidelity about it but they are pretty hush hush on private stuff, but they "assured me" they don't do the "gambling leverage" dangerous stuff.

The cynic/skeptic in me thinks, "Yeah, but what else are they going to say?"

Not saying that they do anything hairy, I rather doubt that they do, but I have no evidence one way or the other. So I just hope that they don't.

I would like to see some prominent Oberlin alumni sue the college, its administrators, trustees, and Raimondo both institutionally and personally, for having destroyed the perceived value of an Oberlin degree.

Get a Conservative sugar daddy to finance it, and do it as a class-action suit.

315 "cynic/skeptic in me thinks, "Yeah, but what else are they going to say?"


yeah, that's why I put "assured me" in quotes. But they have seemed more solid in many ways over the years, hard to quantify. I think Schwab was the other one Fleck' ranked up there with Fidelity.


Seems a time may come when some "bail ins" may occur, and more rumors of resets or jubilee on debt ... no one knows, except that everyone went fiat and bubbles are blowing ever larger. And BigMoney is trying to take down Trump, and trying to tear up sovereign nations ... lots in the shadows, and they openly lie to us (like Bernanke when he openly lied that "we are not doing quantitative easing", well after they were doing it) Just amazing but "it will continue ... till it doesn't" as the saying goes.


I'd like to get money away from Boston though ... Massachusetts has not been great for liberty ... or any of the east coast, for a long time. But do I really need a bulldozer? lol

It's a fun idea, but alumni have no contractual agreement with the school that obligates the school to do anything at all for them. It's more like "You fucked up! You trusted us!!!"

If they were really motivated, they could try to take back the Board of Trustees from the SJW's, but that's probably doomed to failure too. The only thing they really can do is walk away, never give them another dime, and do everything they can to convince other alumni to never give them a dime and convince future generations that it's a worthless shithole and no one should ever go there.

Of course that would mean admitting that value of the degree that the alumni got is now worthless and is never going to be of value again. It's a hard thing to accept, but it's the truth.

These organizations like Oberlin that have gone bad - they aren't going to be "saved", they aren't going to be "reformed", they aren't going to "learn their lesson". They are going to die, and the town that relied on them will probably mostly die with them. That's a hard, sad fact.

It's common to say that when something can't go on, it won't. Well, this is how things end. Everything dies at some point, some things sooner than others.

The brake is disengaged, and the chain tightner/loosener works but the chain still will not turn.

Anything to try? It's just a cheap 14" Poulan but it has been really handy for the small stuff.

The chain moves freely if you move it by hand with the engine off? If so, I suspect either the centrifugal clutch has failed somehow, or maybe the key that holds the clutch on the shaft is sheared. (If it uses a key.) I think most chainsaws have the centrifugal clutch threaded onto the crankshaft with a fine right-hand thread. Maybe take the chain off, and see if the teeth on the inside of the chain that engage with the sprocket teeth on the clutch are still intact. Also see if the sprocket teeth on the clutch drum are OK. They can get worn right through in the middle where the chain rides on them.

Hope this helps. Poulan is sort of a disposable chainsaw.

Good morning Horde. Let us take a peek at a few stories that didn't get their due here at the AoSHQ this past week.

Life has returned to almost normal.

***

  • Of course alcohol was involved. And a McDonald's.

  • Continuing with our alcohol theme.

  • Sorry buddy, you're still a man.

  • The perfect job for a Moron.

  • Japan says no more flying drones while intoxicated.

  • I think I could do this challenge.

  • Parents these days.

  • Obviously this gal isn't the brightest bulb in the pack.

    Rules? Well don't pee in the pool. No running with sharp objects and play nice with one another. Life is good.

    Have a great weekend!!!!

    Heh. Here in town, we have the Redemption World Outreach Church. It used to be run by a white guy with huge fake, white teeth and nugget gold-type jewelry until the wife was caught having an affair and it all looked bad. In his place is a black guy now. The guy and his wife live in a massively-gated community. I've driven through there. His house is in the $millions. His wife drives, I think, a $250k Lamborghini, and he caused a ruckus for wearing $2000k shoes while preaching one Sunday. Many in his congregation believe he "deserves" it.

    48 Jaguars exist. Men exist. Mental problems exist. Plastic surgery exists. A nut job can have all the surgery in the world to try to become a jaguar. He may be very exited and happy about his surgery and think he has become a jaguar. He hasn't. Every man and every jaguar can see that he is just a crazy man with surgical alterations.
    If he insists he is a jaguar, I am fine with him living a life of self delusion. But I reject any notion that forces me to accept him as anything but a man with serious mental issues, who attacked the symptoms and not the problem.

    50 Hi everyone!

    I have been trying to reduce my phone use (she said, typing on her mobile). I took up cross stitch as a new hobby to fill empty moments. The bad part is that most patterns are sissy (flowers, puppies and kittens, etc.) and I'm not good enough to make my own (rocket ships, reproductions of Pointillist paintings, F1 cars, etc.) yet. But the time will come.

    Fenelon, if you're awake - I saw your comments last night, and my sister does have stress in her life, this is true. (not happy with her job, struggling with blending her new family) However, so do I, and I'm still managing not to treat our rapidly aging parents like they're inconvenient or refer to the suicide attempt of someone under my care as something that is happening to *me*. I'm out of empathy for my sister's problems at this point. Which I guess is wrong of me, but...

    One of the things I'm struggling with is that I know a few things about my parents' health that my sister doesn't know. I feel I should tell her, because maybe she will stop being a pill to them if she realizes there may be some really serious stuff going on, but I'm worried she will instead behave in a way that makes it even worse for them. (She does know enough other things that she should be well aware the situation has some unpleasant possibilities, which is why I think her handling it poorly is likely. It's the most recent developments she hasn't heard about.)

    I mean, seriously. Who tells her ailing father that she has a "small window" available for him on Father's Day and makes a bunch of excuses for why she can't bring her children to see their grandfather?

    Anyway. Time to get up and get shit done! Gotta clean the house and do some work, and I also have a 7yo and a 3yo to play with.

    I'm in my mid-50s, but back in my 20s I used to do a lot of cross stitch and loved doing it. I mostly followed (sissy) patterns, but did try and create my own a time or two. It was hard. Let's just say, Renoir I'm not. I have very little artistic talent. But with girls being boys, and boys being girls, and outlawed boy/girl depictions in UK ads...it's only a matter of time until some brawny patterns start coming out to replace the flowers and heartwarming statements surrounded by ribbons (yes, I did cross stitch that last one for real).

    71 Shame for this to get willowed right prior to the Saturday coffee thread.

    88 WHERE YOUR COFFEE COMES FROM

    Buenos Dias--Good morning from the the Land of Coffee. Altitude here is between 5000' and 6000'. Temps are mostly between 60 and 80 degrees. The view is marvelous, and the people ,in general, some of the kindest most helpful in the world. We have over 40,000 coffee trees, but many are older and need cut and re-sprouted or outright replaced. All the work here is done by hand because of the terrain. Many of the coffee fincas (farms) are much smaller, 5 to 10 acres. Ours is 40 acres.

    This is my retirement venture, and a challenging one to be sure. Most larger farm owners live in town and come out a few times a week to (or less) to "supervise"--lol. We live on the farm, and take a completely active role in its function. I have a foreman that supervises workers, and he lives right beside me, on the farm. When we planted 4000 new trees last year, I helped carry the trees to the area to be planted. This is a pretty arduous task in the mountains.

    One of the workers ( who was new) asked my foreman "Where did you find a gringo to work on the farm?". He was shocked to discover I was the owner. Most of the workers are transient, and primarily contract workers. I am pleased to report that workers are always pleased to return here to work. we pay a little bit more than others, but we get higher quality workers that are conscientious and honest in their work. They tell us that here, they have the best food that can be found, and our dormitory has is well lite and completely wired with electricity. They also have a tv and a dvd player. We have several hundred movies on dvd and change them out regularly. work starts @ 6am Monday through Friday, break for breakfast at 8 am, lunch at noon, and dinner about 5pm. Pickers are paid by the kilo for what they pick, and they work at their own pace.

    I was surprised to discover that most workers avoid owners as much as possible. Last year, our first here, they were surprised that we lived here, and not only would I talk to them, but I would work WITH them. So, we try to live by the golden rule/ Treat others as you want them to treat you. Our foreman has had several job offers, but declined them, and as reported to me, told them he would be pleased to work here for the rest of his life.


    As Father's day approaches I recall my father's advice to me many year's ago---
    Where ever you go, always try to leave it better than you found it. If you do things right, your return will always be welcomed.

    God bless you all.

    I think Wray's chief qualification was that he was available and able to get past the Senate.

    People forget just how screwed up things were when Trump took office. The Deep State had just claimed Flynn's scalp and his own 'allies' in the House were muttering about impeachment.

    Wray was one of the few Establishment types that didn't chant "f8ck you" during the campaign, so he got the gig. I think both CIA and FBI need new leadership.

    86 California Court Rules Inmates Can Have Marijuana in Prison if They Do Not Smoke It

    A California court has ruled that it is okay for inmates to have marijuana while in prison, so long as they do not inhale it.

    3rd District Court of Appeals ruled that California voters legalized recreational possession of less than an ounce of cannabis in 2016, with no exception even for those behind bars. However, it is state law that marijuana cannot be smoked inside of a prison.

    Therefore, the court ruled, inmates can be in possession of small amounts of marijuana, but cannot smoke or inhale it in any way. It is unclear if the California Attorney General will appeal the ruling.

    Coke picked up the tab, of course for all of his travel, lodging, and expenses.

    The cool part was that he saw any movie he cared to see, because he collected Coke samples at the theater, with Coke picking up the tab. He ate anywhere fountain Coke was available.

    He might visit six restaurants a day, but only ate normal-ish meals, simply not eating anything he didn't want.

    Mrs. Peel, I found a site that might suit you: scarlet quince. They offer cross stitch based on a style or specific artist. The example I saw was for Pre-Raphaelite paintings. Hope this helps.

    108 The docs don't like to call the place the "emergency room" or ER any longer; it's the "emergency department" or ED because emergency medicine is now a specialty requiring a 3- or 4-year residency after med school and internship. So I guess they had to upgrade the old ER with a new name.

    It'll be interesting to see how the Prison Guards Union reacts. On the one hand, I'm sure almost all prison guards would love for their inmates to be stoned all day, it makes them very passive and easy to control. On the other hand, legalizing marijuana like that is going to cut down on the prison guards number one source of income, and they might not like to lose out on that.

    I pretty much knew how to drive a car by 9 years old - thanks to go-karts and tractors and watching drivers.

    I would never have thought of trying to drive anywhere.

    My dad did take his folks' car once when he was barely older than that, and was pulled over by the police. After he held up his sister's arm, bleeding from cuts from broken window-glass, he got a police escort to the hospital.

    They probably wouldn't do that these days.

    I think it was W, in his always against the average Joe mode,(see also repeal of the homesteading act) who forbade the sale of out of state booze in Texas.

    Posted by: naturalfake at June 15, 2019 09:27 AM (J2mEl)

    No, that can't be blamed on him. Texas liquor laws are unbelievable weird, and luckily mostly fading away, but they date back to the end of Prohibition in the 30's.

    Only a carrier licenses with the TABC (Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission) is allowed to transport alcohol of any kind for purchase or resale. Only an organization with a Permit from the TABC is allowed to ship alcohol to purchasers in Texas. Currently, no business or person outside the State of Texas is allowed to obtain such a permit. Hard Liquor sales must all come from licensed package stores located in the county where the sale is made.

    On the plus side, underage drinking is usually illegal, but if a child is with their parents and the parents approve, then it is allowed. Also, if someone is married to an underage spouse, they are allowed to legally get that spouse as drunk as they want, no matter what her age is.

    One law that almost passed that I would have liked to see was the proposed law legalizing beer and wine sales at all gun shows. Almost passed, but I guess some people thought that would send a bad message.

    but child brides, that's still a-ok.

    he said there were no women seated at the table at the Last Supper and that "we have to respect that".

    "Jesus Christ made decisions and they were not ideological .. . and we want to be faithful to Jesus Christ," he said in reference to the lack of women in attendance.

    He also said that perhaps women "like to be in the back room".

    Posted by: Pennsylvania at June 15, 2019 09:46 AM (nDe2U)


    Yeah. Until recently, hard liquor and wine were sold only in state-owned liquor stores. In fact the sign used to read STATE STORE, but they changed it a few years ago the friendlier-sounding Wine & Spirit Shoppe. Some of us 29 year olds still call them by the old name.

    Beer by the case is only sold at beer distributors. They can also sell wine coolers, but not wine or hard liquor. Bars and some restaurants sell six-packs for takeout, but not full cases.

    Supermarkets and convenience stores are right out.*

    Once I went on a trip to Vermont with a couple of friends. It was late and we wanted to get some beer to take back to the motel. We stopped at a bar and I went in to get some. The bartender looked at me like I had three heads. "This is a bar. We don't sell six-packs here."

    *Due to a recent change in the law, some supermarkets can now sell beer and wine. The first time I saw a display it stopped me in my tracks. I thought I was hallucinating.

    One interesting booze law in Texas-

    Until sometime in the 70s it was perfectly legal to drink beer while driving.

    That's right...cruising down a Texas highway in your pick up with the windows down, drinking on a long neck.

    254 How many kids start out vaping and then switch to cigarettes when they get older? I doubt there are very many.

    I think it's reasonable to impose an 18 year old age limit since nicotine is a drug, and the fruit flavors do seemed to be aimed at kids, so maybe that needs to be dialed back a notch.

    As a longtime smoker, I just buy the tobacco-flavored vape juice. If I wanted candy flavor I'd light a Twizzler on fire.

The plaintiff attorneys get their clients by reviewing union lists and then solicit clients Most are in their late 70's early 80's alleging asbestos exposure and decreased pulmonary function. Most have been life long smokers. Insurance carriers share paying these claims for the most part instead of a single carrier being targeted.

    I read the opening lines of Douglas Adams' The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul the other day:white

    IT CAN HARDLY be a coincidence that no language on earth has ever produced the expression "As pretty as an airport." Airports are ugly. Some are very ugly. Some attain a degree of ugliness that can only be the result of a special effort. This ugliness arises because airports are full of people who are tired, cross, and have just discovered that their luggage has landed in Murmansk (Murmansk airport is the only known exception to this otherwise infallible rule), and architects have on the whole tried to reflect this in their designs.

    1 Good Morning Morons; today is Saturday, June 15, 2019. On this day in 1804 New Hampshire approved the Twelfth Amendment to the United States Constitution, ratifying the document. The 12th amendment changed the way the President and Vice President were elected by the electoral college. The communists want to change it again without an amendment. That is being challenged in court and will likely be shutdown.

    Really, in my way I am kind of a nickel-and-dime Warren Buffet; sometimes I see things that are, shall we say, significantly undervalued, and sometimes I like to buy them and turn an honest profit thereby. Having several hundred dollars in cash in your pocket can really help that process along.

    But truth is, I liked carrying a good bit of cash long before I discovered putting it to use, it's probably a Linus' blanket kind of thing just like the two multitools ... whatever happens I can feel prepared to meet it head on and heads up.

    88 WHERE YOUR COFFEE COMES FROM

    Buenos Dias--Good morning from the the Land of Coffee. Altitude here is between 5000' and 6000'. Temps are mostly between 60 and 80 degrees. The view is marvelous, and the people ,in general, some of the kindest most helpful in the world. We have over 40,000 coffee trees, but many are older and need cut and re-sprouted or outright replaced. All the work here is done by hand because of the terrain. Many of the coffee fincas (farms) are much smaller, 5 to 10 acres. Ours is 40 acres. This is my retirement venture, and a challenging one to be sure. Most larger farm owners live in town and come out a few times a week to (or less) to "supervise"--lol. We live on the farm, and take a completely active role in its function. I have a foreman that supervises workers, and he lives right beside me, on the farm. When we planted 4000 new trees last year, I helped carry the trees to the area to be planted. This is a pretty arduous task in the mountains. One of the workers ( who was new) asked my foreman "Where did you find a gringo to work on the farm?". He was shocked to discover I was the owner. Most of the workers are transient, and primarily contract workers. I am pleased to report that workers are always pleased to return here to work. we pay a little bit more than others, but we get higher quality workers that are conscientious and honest in their work. They tell us that here, they have the best food that can be found, and our dormitory has is well lite and completely wired with electricity. They also have a tv and a dvd player. We have several hundred movies on dvd and change them out regularly. work starts @ 6am Monday through Friday, break for breakfast at 8 am, lunch at noon, and dinner about 5pm. Pickers are paid by the kilo for what they pick, and they work at their own pace. I was surprised to discover that most workers avoid owners as much as possible. Last year, our first here, they were surprised that we lived here, and not only would I talk to them, but I would work WITH them. So, we try to live by the golden rule/ Treat others as you want them to treat you. Our foreman has had several job offers, but declined them, and as reported to me, told them he would be pleased to work here for the rest of his life.
    As Father's day approaches I recall my father's advice to me many year's ago---
    Where ever you go, always try to leave it better than you found it. If you do things right, your return will always be welcomed. God bless you all.

    Pussification Continues Apace, Part Deux: Electric Boogaloo


    My daughter lives with me and owns a gun. Can I kick her out?


    This week, I discovered that my intelligent, hard-working, responsible 24-year-old daughter (who lives with me) is a gun owner! And it’s not a normal gun, either — it is a 40-caliber semi-automatic, and she has hollow-point bullets to go with it.

    Amy, this is the kind of weapon a criminal would possess! 
    …..
    I love my daughter and would be so sad for her to move into a place that she would hardly be able to afford, but now I have to lock my bedroom door at night because I don’t know what she’s going to do.

    Locked door ain't gonna do much against a .40 Skippy. The answer is almost as idiotic as the question.

    Don't tell him about this guy: Meet “The Most Armed Man In America” Who Has Enough Weapons To Supply A Small Army

    That site, TooPanda, has some amusing stuff, but OMG the Engrish! Like, for example, from this article: 10 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods In America Stated By FBI

    This is their entry for one of the two neighborhoods in Baltimore they mention, over by the Edgar Allen Poe House:

    We’re miserable to state that the distressing scene painted on indicates like The Wire and Homicide: Life on the Street is grounded as a general rule. For every 100,000 individuals, the area by one means or another makes 9,379 rough violations.

    I think it translates as “We're unhappy to report that scenes from TV shows like The Wire and Homicide are based in reality. The violent crime rate for the city is 9379 crimes per 100,000 residents”, but it's hard to tell. Frankly, while that ain't a great neighborhood, I'd have no qualms about being there during the day, and there are many worse ones at night.

    I have to say, I love Salena Zito's stuff, even if she is a Yinzer. Reading it reminds me that there's a whole big country out there, far from the madding crowd of the internet. Now I need to get out to Dickerson for some fried chicken.

    College Student: My Generation Is Blind to the Prosperity Around Us

    Every word of that is true, and what's more, it's intentional. When history recounts the second half of the 20th century and the first half of the 21st, our failure to root out the Gramscian viper at our bosom will be our greatest shame.

    Cultural Tragedy

    The Day the Music Burned

    Huge fire on the Universal Studios backlot destroyed almost 200K master recordings a decade ago, and nobody really talks about it. That's a huge chunk of America's 20th century musical heritage, gone forever. Among the recordings listed as destroyed is Jackie Brenston and His Delta Cats’ “Rocket 88,”. That's a personal loss, because not only was that the first rock n roll record, but my dad has a '49 Olds Rocket 88, and that is the car's theme song. I'd love to hear a remastered version of the song using modern recording techniques. Sadly, that'll never happen now. The article is long but very informative, I know a lot more about what a master recording is and why they are so important than I did before.

    that's not the kind of thing the Hatch Act was ever about in the first place. It was about the Democrats of the 30's and 40's putting their political campaign staff on the federal payroll and calling them "government" jobs.

    But every President has always had a political adviser on the payroll. To say that adviser is not allowed to speak publicly is asinine.

    My wife's grandparents live their entire lives in Waskom, and her father was born there - real close to the Louisiana border, about 30 miles from Shreveport. We've driven through a few times to look at 'the old home place".

    Waskom won their first ever Texas State Football Championship in 2014 (they'd been competing for over 100 years). Big Deal for a little bitty town, but it's a place that loves its kids.

    When I was in high school, we had a teacher who had visible head and arm tremors. We often joked that it was because he was a driver's ed teacher.

    My history teacher (Korean War vet) overheard one of these stupid joke sessions, and slammed his book down hard on his desk.

    "I'll tell you why Mr. M** has tremors. He fought on Guadalcanal and was grievously wounded in the shoulder and neck by Japanese shrapnel."

    It's especially galling because a series of fires from the 1930s to the 1960s on studio backlots destroyed so many original negatives and other artifacts. Also, the major broadcast networks would 'wipe' and erase/reuse videotape of daytime TV, soaps, live news, game shows, and sporting events (including the original 1967 Super Bowl) and did it right up pretty much until the early 1980s. Many 1960s Johnny Carson-hosted Tonight Show episodes were lost.

    One of the craziest stories: almost the entire kinescope library of the 1950s-era DuMont network was destroyed in the 1970s because, according to the now-deceased star of one of their shows, the films were dumped into the East River.

    97 I remember one high school teacher who was bald and who was pretty freaky, he'd have emotional outbursts. One time I remember him throwing erasers at one kid who talked in class and bugged him. Then we found out that he really did have a big steel plate in his head from the Korean War.

    My 7th grade social studies teacher had a phonograghic memory. Never forgot a thing he heard. Was pretty amazing. Then one day he mentioned going ashore on Omaha Beach. And he could not forget the screams of dying men. Even though I was young and stupid at the time, my respect for him knew no bounds.

    111 My sister is just being a total dick lately. I don't know what her problem is. I'm basically just trying not to exacerbate the situation, meaning I don't respond in kind (even when it is REALLY TEMPTING... but part of the problem is that this is upsetting my mom, and I don't want to make *that* worse). But I don't really want to have anything else to do with her anyway. Her 19yo stepdaughter tried to kill herself a few weeks ago, and her and her husband's reaction was to have her throw up the pills she'd taken and go to bed alone. No medical help, no nothing. And then she, my sister, said, "Why is this happening to me?" So, I don't know who she is.

    I've never been especially close to my sister - 6 yr age difference, very few interests in common, and not at all similar personality-wise - but I didn't think we were this far apart. I have a feeling that when our parents are gone, we won't see each other anymore. Which I think is sad - sisters should be close. I hope my sons stay close to each other.

    Anyway, sorry for the bummer post. How about them Astros? Also, have I told you guys that cochlear implants are awesome? I genuinely feel like a whole world is open to me that was closed off when I still wore hearing aids.

    117 On equipping others...

    Snap up every bargain basement .22 rifle deal you can find.

    Lots of 2nd tier branded ones out there, such as J.C. Higgins, Western Field, Stevens, etc.

    Dozen or two of those, and a couple of 5,000 rd. cases of .22 LR ammo, and you've equipped the neighbors with an easy to use weapon, and ensured ammo compatibility in the bargain.

    Score the right deals on the Just Right .22 rifles, and you'll have a collection that'll at a minimum, keep pace with inflation, in terms of value.

    .22s are great to use in the process of "procuring" heavier armaments, provided the requisite levels of stealth, skill and ruthlessness.

    Which can be a "learned value", as needed. And talent, as it were, will naturally rise to the top in stressful conditions.

    .22 LR, especially out of a carbine, tends to go in and then bounce around inside a lot. So there's little to no blow through, all the damage stays inside. It's weird, just sort of a sweet spot of size and weight and speed.

    In absolute numbers? Yes.

    But if you look at the stats, .22 LR is overly good at one-shot stops. (It's also the worst at 'wasn't stopped no matter how many shots' stats)

    It certainly is a man-killing round and not to be taken lightly. I'm a fan of the CCI Mini Mags, which are pretty darn reliable for rimfire.

    I don't have knowledge of the Just Right line, other than pawing at a couple early examples at gun shows a few years ago.

    The price on those would defeat what it is I'm advocating though.

    Acquiring and stockpiling cheap, simple, serviceable, shootable rifles in .22 LR. Emphasis on CHEAP.

    152 In absolute numbers? Yes.

    But if you look at the stats, .22 LR is overly good at one-shot stops. (It's also the worst at 'wasn't stopped no matter how many shots' stats)

    It certainly is a man-killing round and not to be taken lightly. I'm a fan of the CCI Mini Mags, which are pretty darn reliable for rimfire.

    161 For many years in the late '70s through the mid '80s, many "Major Brand" ballistic vests were *not* warranted against the .22 LR.

    The projectile is coming at you at the speed on the lower end of .357 Magnum velocities, but with only about 1/3 of the frontal area of the .357.

    It's concentrating that energy on a far smaller group of woven Kevlar, than the larger diameter round.

    Works the same way a sewing needle goes through your heavy denim.

    Today's vests *ARE* certified to stop the .22. But this is a relatively well developed technology, and it improves every single year. Because, so do the synthetic fibers used to make 'em.

    Back in the old days though? It was all pretty much "add more layers" in the technology.

    165 >> I don't think one needs a license or permission to kill agricultural pests,

    You can kill any varmint (there is a precise definition of what constitutes pests), including deer if it's close enough to a dwelling. But you're supposed to get a permit to kill 'em in the fields.

    This is close enough to the house to be legal to shoot dead, so it's close. Only problem is there's so many of 'em.

    I'm gonna rig a crude 45 degree fence. Just slap something up out there.

    Deer can jump a 4' fence like nothing. 6' is easy as well. You need 8' or better. However, a 45 slant confuses them and makes it hard for them to judge distance to jump.

    If anyone remembers, last week or so I was talking about the carb on my B&S tiller. I got around to fixing it this afternoon.

    It wasn't one of the pulse-jets with the diaphragm pump, just a straight sucker.

    I took it down. Apparently one of the holes in the body was clogged. I took the needle valve out, and there was a removable jet behind it. Took that out, and there were two little hole behind it. Took the air squirter and blew it.

    I couldn't get any air to come out through the throat, so I got some carb cleaner and finally got air to blow through.

    Put it back together and it fired right up. Adjusted the needle and the governor and it was good to go. Running like a top now.

    174 Wife and I attended a memorial service fo a 92 y/o neighbor who died in her remote mountain cabin (where she lived alone) a couple months ago. She was a tough old Norwegian woman who was feisty and curmudgeonly. Typical small town memorial, group recitation of the Lord's Prayer, group singing of Amazing Grace and remembrances.

    One of our other neighbors had a reminiscence that up until her mid 80s she would climb up on her rather steep roof via a ladder and sweep out her chimney. He told her, those days were over and he would take care of her chimney (no euphemism) from that point on. So he clambered up the ladder, shimmied perilously along the ridge line to the chimney and began to remove the spark arrester. He heard a noise and turned around and she was right behind him on the roof making sure he was doing it right.

    I'd like to be that feisty in my 80's.

    175 I always thought that mental illnesses kind of precluded self-diagnosis, given that the feedback would just go back into the original worldview and be described as "normal outlook."

    But there's this friend of mine, who has started to think that his outlook on life and all is not normal, and that he might, in fact, be insane. He has started to look at the thoughts and ideas he has, the things he constructs from random moments, and the outlook that he has had on "normal" human behavior, and he wonders if he should put himself away before he does something harmful.

    I'm not sure what to tell him. He tells me that he can look at decisions he made before, and see how they are not normal, and it worries him.

    So far as I can tell he has not harmed himself or others, but the idea worries him, especially the part about harming others without being aware of the harm.

    Any advice I can give him?

    Almost any mental illness that is mental, and not physical (chemical imbalance or disease) is fixed by the person afflicted. A therapist can only help point, the real work comes from the patient.

    If they are entertaining the idea they might be ill, then they might actually benefit from a psychiatrist. Psychiatrist, not psychologist, I'm biased but the medical degree means they might be able to find organic problems as opposed to just doing a good job of listening.

    Good luck to your friend.

    A couple days ago, I worked on a Clark (Melroe) Spra-Coupe with a VW industrial engine in it. Took the carb off.

    195 A high school friend was heavily into wargames. He brought his copy of Operation: Cobra one day and set it up in a classroom.

    Mr. B., a science teacher, came by and started pointing out on the game board, a map of Normandy, all the towns that he had gone through. He was in Army intelligence. Analyst, from what I could glean.

    Dad, who was in the Reserve when he was young, said Mr. B. was his instructor. Dad said they once learned to throw knives.

    God, we all loved Mr. B.

    For that matter, the principal -- a fat guy -- had been a Navy frogman. I wondered what he had looked like then.

    Paternal grandpa's cousin came back from Europe as a first lieutenant with honors for heroism -- and a drinking problem. Grandpa often had to bail him out, I overheard. He finally stopped drinking. I would encounter him on trips to town. I loved our conversations.

    Oh, and a family friend enlisted as a conscious objector. He became an ambulance driver, and I would have bet that he saw more blood than most G.I.s did.

    All gone now. Thank God we had such men.

    The fundamental thing you need to understand about Japanese culture is that it has absolutely no concept of an intermediate setting. Whatever a Japanese person decides to do is always done full-bore.

    This applies no matter whether the thing in question is conquering Asia or becoming a turbo nerd. "Set up a massive barbarian horde to loot, rape and murder our way across the Asian continent? BANZAI!!!!" "Become so fucking nerdy and introverted that we can no longer even masturbate to pictures of real women, only cartoon characters? BANZAI!!!!!"

    These tillers don't have a hand a throttle control at all. Speed is set by that little arm that pulls the spring. I guess that was just saving cost or something to avoid having to run some throttle cable.

    The governor on my push mower,which is a Tecumseh, is some shaft on the side of the crankcase. Some internal thing.

    Those who have spent time on the West Coast or in Alaska probably remember Cal Worthington, who had an extremely goofy hick persona he used to sell cars.

    Cal dropped out of school at age 13, in the depths of the Depression. He joined the Army Air Corps when WWII came along and managed to get a commission despite his poor education, then flew 29 combat missions over Germany. He was discharged as aCaptain. Five Air Medals. Distinguished Flying Cross presented by Jimmy Doolittle himself.

    I didn't know about that until his obituary, either.

    No, I appreciated that. This is some straight sucker. The pick-up tube is fairly long. That thing was clear, though I did clean the little screen as best I could.

    There was some odd "baffle" thing inside the throat on the engine side. The carb is a long body, and it's a fairly long throat from the throttle plate to the intake port.

    And inside was this twisted baffle looking thing. I have no idea what the function is.

    288 Publius.

    The .308 part would be legal for deer, no doubt.

    But if your state has a 5 round limit on the rifle, then you'll have to do some Harry Potter grade scrounging in the aftermarket magazine field.

    OR, you can take a common 10 round AR-10 magazine, and insert 1/2 inch pins in the front and rear flats of the magazine, thus preventing the follower from descending into the magazine body. Set those pins where the magazine can only hold FOUR rounds.

    With one in the chamber, there's your Five Round Limit.

    Restrictive States based that on the (then) everyman's Mauser/Springfield/Enfield/ bolties, which were the pattern for untold millions of "Civilian" bolt action sporting rifles, ever since.

    Which is why comparatively few SMLE pattern rifles were sporterized, in comparison to the Mausers and Springfields, and to a lesser extent, Enfields.

    Oh, and do be careful how you construct your "blind" for these nuisance deer.

    The more it looks like a Spontaneous Shot was taken, the fewer hassles you're likely to incur.

    I used to work with a lady who was really unlucky. She would always get attacked by aggressive deer in her yard and have to defend herself from the gang of crazed deer that roamed her woods.

    When they weren't attacking her they would wander in the road and cause freak accidents where they'd wind up getting hit in the damnedest way, and it would just leave a .270" hole through the thorax. Luckily her truck never got damaged too bad.

    Mr. Jones would bring his Buick in that sometimes wouldn't turn over, and you'd diagnose it, remove the starter, replace the armature with a dead spot in it, change out the brushes , reinstall it and off he'd go.

    Now the thrust is diagnosis, and you replace the offending part but you FIX nothing. I hate that nobody builds anything that can be repaired instead of replaced.

    Theoretically digital technology can make perfect copies of everything eventually so that no one disaster can have such a detrimental effect, but then there's also too much material to transfer in any kind of timely fashion. Plus the recording industry is in kind of a scrambling mode right now, and only wants to do what makes money for itself.

    So the end result is that probably even more priceless recordings, videotapes and other artifacts will end up destroyed, before the problem ever goes away entirely.

    326 Ignition points (i.e Kettering ignition) work fine, but their performance degrades subtly over time. Contacts burn, the rubbing block wears, condenser becomes leaky, etc. All resulting in weaker spark, and/or timing drift.

    Electronic ignition (in a distributor, not crank-triggered) basically works right on spec until it doesn't, and then it usually fails outright.

    You can carry a replacement module and pickup coil, and change them on the roadside, if need be. But it doesn't need routine maintenance every 10k miles.

    And it's getting harder and harder to find good quality ignition points in auto supply stores. Some of the stuff sold now is crap.

    328 Cal Worthington lives on.

    He's called "Mattress Mack", and he's the most successful, One Store (until he grew to 3 stores a few years back) furniture store, EVER.

    His ONE STORE on I-45 North in Houston, was in the TOP TWENTY furniture retailers in the USA, and that's versus major chains like Star, Bassett, LaZBoy, etc.

    Difference is, while Mattress Mac has the drive, the marketing savvy, the work ethic and the genius of Cal Worthington, he brings in a degree of honesty, candor, generosity and charity, heretofore not seen in the retail world.

    If you're ever staying in the Greater Houston TV market, be sure to keep an eye out for Gallery Furniture TV commercials. Better still...visit Gallery Furniture at the I-45 North location.

    You're very likely to meet Mac, there at his post at the front doors.

    And you'll be in awe of the store, it's offerings, and staff.

    Nary a scrap of Made in China furniture there, now. (he did dabble in it one, and junked the stock in short order, it was crap!)

    The staff works with a Chick Fil A kind of positivity, enthusiasm and drive.

    Speaking of drive.

    You buy something there, you'd best be home three hours later.

    Because they're GOING TO DELIVER IT, right about then.

    The only "backorders" at Gallery Furniture are on true, custom order pieces.

    The Rest? You bought it. It'll be in your home, TODAY!*

    I actually killed a deer with that LR-308 a few years ago. Same thing, nuisance, shot her right out in the garden.

    I had some cheap soft point ammo in the thing, and it did a number on the carcass. Sort of splodey. I called a buddy of mine and they got the thing and dressed it out. He said I did waste some meat, but there was still a lot of good stuff on it.

    I or my father killed one out in the field a few months before that. There were a bunch way down there in the field, sneaking out of the woods, and would've come on up come dark. They did that over a couple days.

    Now get this, both my father and I just grabbed a little .22 rifle and shot through them down there just to scare them.

    A couple of days later, I noticed buzzards circling. Damned if there wasn't a dead deer out there. One of us managed to kill one with a .22, not even trying.

    I took the front end loader and disposed of it, covering him up.

    351 Again, what's the difference in telling fat girls that they are "plus-sized" and "curvy" and agreeing with the little boy who wants his penis split and shaped into a pseudo-vag just like the other "girls"?

    The difference is "plus-sized" and "curvy" are euphemisms and everybody knows that. It's not like fat girls don't know they're fat, and sometimes it's rude to be blunt.

    That said, the "healthy at any size" idea some feminists are promoting is simply factually incorrect and needs to be stomped until it dies. Being fat is not healthy.

    Taylor Swift's latest song has a new target: homophobes.

    Coinciding with the announcement of her seventh album, "Lover," the pop star on Thursday released a new tune called "You Need to Calm Down," where she addresses her own haters but also calls out those who attack the LGBTQ community.

    At one point on the beat-laden track, Swift sings: "And control your urges to scream about all the people you hate/ 'Cause shade never made anybody less gay."

    At another point she sings: "You need to just stop, like can you just not step on his gown?"

He doesn't like Trump, but he's what i would call a classic liberal and has had other Presidents he didn't like. Anyway he's a ortnothologist-amateur but knows a heck of a lot. He went down with binoculars to see piping plovers-an endangered bird at the shore. He was just in the parking lot . He didn't go on the beach because you 're not supposed to. He says "Some nature enthusiasts will want you arrested if you basically even point to a plover and step one foot on the beach. These people are nuts."

    He's right. I consider myself an environmentalist and a conservationist. I volunteer for things and contribute. I hate piping plovers.

    It's not their fault per se, they're just little fluffy shore sparrows that don't do sex well enough to reproduce. So miles of shoreline get shut down to protect 27 nesting pairs.

    I'm sorry, if you're down to 54 birds you should just go the Panda route and let people inseminate you in the zoo.

    427 Tonight's thread appears to be an amalgamation of rifles, deer, and women's bodies.

    I will attempt to blend in

    There used to be a strip bar somewhat nearby named "Bambi's". A few of my older gentlemen customers would jokingly tell me to tell their wives that were at the Deer Lodge, if they came by looking for them.

    My understanding is many of the ladies at Bambi's fell more squarely into the "big-boned" category rather than the "curvy" category, but that apparently was not a deterrent for those fellows as they said it was only $5 to get in + $1 for each beer they brought in with them.

    Standards vs Affordability, always a pressing debate.

    .....

    Tennessee has a two-tiered Strip Club rule as near as I can tell.

    A strip bar may have frontal nudity, but may not sell alcohol.

    Or

    It may require pasties and a g-string and be permitted sell alcohol.

    But, you may not have nudity and sell alcohol.

    Thus, clubs of the former variety allow patrons to bring in alcohol but they must pay the establishment for the privilege to do so.

    456 The B-52-P (Pinochet)

    Being non-nuclear, it'd be exempt from any SALT limitations, and so they could resurrect damn near every remaining flyable airframe from Davis Monthan.

    But with B-52 range and mid-air refueling, it could fly far enough out to deliver payload far beyond the range of wind and current, thus ensuring a true consignment to the deep.

    Helicopters, though "satisfying" lack the efficiency to perform the necessary duties in the quantities required for success.

    464 The issue for Taylor Swift, Arianna Grande & Miley Cyrus types is that they start off appealing to tweety-bopper girls and so there music tends to be fun and wholesome.

    But as they get older and as they're fan base gets older, they are too old to appear on Disney shows so their handlers tell them that they must become edgy whores to shed their innocent reputation.

    And so you get Miley Cyrus acting like a stupid whore eating an abortion cake, twerking and smoking dope.

    It's a shame. No one has any self-respect when you set a million or two dollars in front of them.

    current model C-130s.

    load to capacity w/o seats, then climb to altitude, and slowly normalize cargo area air pressure. (crew on oxygen)

    once anoxia sets in, lower the ramp and go into a climb. gravity does the rest

    Seven Minutes of a Foreign Lady Petting and Feeding Street Cats

    It's cuter than it might sound! It's very relaxing.

    Now, sure, the cats are all lovey-dovey because this woman walks around with a bag of cat food, and I'm sure they know that.

    But they are, you know, animals. And living on the street. Of course they're primarily motivated by food.

    They're still cute little beggars!

    Oh, and there's a new Banana Splits movie. I would ask "Is this something?" but I'm pretty sure it's not something.

    I'm just linking it because, whatever.

    An internal Facebook document reveals that the social media giant monitors its users' offline behavior as part of how the company determines whether a person should be classified as a "Hate Agent," according to Breitbart's Allum Bokhari who has reviewed the document.

    Titled "Hate Agent Policy Review," the document reveals that Facebook employs a series of "signals" which include a person's behavior both on and off the platform. Once determined to be a "hate agent," a person is banned from the platform.

    It's being reported that days before the tanker attacks, a US drone was detected by the Iranians, who tried to hit it with a surface-to-air missile, but missed. The missile landed in the water.

    This fact is causing some to speculate that the US has advance knowledge of Iranian movements.

    It's interesting. I've been watching these in the mornings on one of my broadcast channels.

    Emma Peel is a sex symbol, and has been for 50 years.

    But Diana Rigg, though pretty, isn't voluptuous, just petite. That was the style then, of course, but she isn't anywhere near buxom. And, while attractive, she isn't astonishingly beautiful.

    No, her reputation is based on Rigg's performance, and her rather haughty charm.

    This is what the SJWs constantly bitch about--a smart woman, a strong woman, and claim that oh, woe, society can't stand a strong woman-- but it's bullshit, isn't it? What about Myrna Loy in The Thin Man movies? Or any one of a dozen others?

    They constantly trot out the canard that mean old men just won't give the womans a chance, but that's been bullshit for a long time as evidenced by these characters that have been huge successes for decades.

    Yes, her husband was lost in the Amazon but found and looked incredibly like Steed and she left the show to be a Bond girl. And the previous Avengers girl Cathy Gale (Honor Blackman) was a widow too. I believe her husband was supposed to be killed in Kenya. And Blackman left the show to be a Bond girl

    Mine is the BlueFuel brand from NAPA but most any type works.

    I also keep Fix-A-Flat in the car too, because I hate changing tires in emergencies. Especially in heavy traffic.

    Emma Peel is a sex symbol, and has been for 50 years. "

    The character of Emma Peal is all female, but also strong, confident, and in control of herself and her situation at all times. There are times when she needs men to get out of a jam; but just as often, they need her. Emma Peel is a very balanced, strong, attractive character.

    And she does it all with class.

    Not a Hint of Scandal: Obama Administration Deleted 190 Speeches About Immigration (and Immigration Enforcement) Just Before Trump Took Power, Most Likely To Erase the Record of the Obama Administration's Own Pro-Border-Enforcement Rhetoric

    MinTruth edits the past to shape the future, again.

    The Daily Caller:

    The Obama administration deleted hundreds of speeches and statements on the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) website just hours before President Donald Trump officially entered office, according to research released Tuesday.

    A collection of 190 transcripts of speeches on ICE's website was deleted on Jan. 18 and late in the evening on Jan. 19, 2017, according to research conducted by the Sunlight Foundation, a nonpartisan organization that advocates for government transparency. Statements made by high-ranking ICE officials regarding controversial immigration topics such as sanctuary cities, E-Verify, treatment of detainees, and other issues were included in the reported deletions.

    "With a couple of clicks of a mouse, access to a federal government web resource containing 12 years of primary source materials on ICEís history was lost," the Sunlight Foundation wrote, noting that archived speeches dating back from 2004 were among those deleted.

    Speeches from former acting ICE Director Thomas Homan, a public supporter of Trump's immigration policies, were among those prominently included in the deletion list.

    It seemed to go pretty well. The doctor seems to think this one treatment should kill the brain tumor. The nurse will call me on Monday, and I have a follow-up appointment with the doctor in September, with another MRI prior to that.

    The biggest problem was that I got lost and had trouble finding the place, so I was pretty stressed out when I got there. I HATE getting lost and I ALWAYS get lost.

    But the treatment consisted of lying quietly on a table for half an hour while the robot did its work, so that gave me an opportunity to calm down.

    Nolte: CNN Has Lost One-Third of Its Primetime Audience, and a Whopping 55% of the Most Important Demo (25-54 Year Olds)

    Trump Bump, followed by No Collusion Collapse.

    The far-left CNN's ratings death spiral marched into last week as the fake news network lost one-third of its primetime audience and a breathtaking 55 percent of its demo viewers.

    When compared to this same week last year, CNN also lost 21 percent of its total day viewers.

    How bad is this?


    Well, you canít blame a slow news week because not only was President Trump on an overseas trip, but as you will see, CNN stands completely alone with this massive audience implosion.

    By comparison, in primetime, MSNBC and Fox News only lost four percent of their viewers compared to last year and seven and five percent of their total day viewers, respectively.

    Let me lay this out for you as starkly as I can.

    Primetime Viewership Compared to Same Week Last Year

    Fox News: -4 percent

    MSNBC: -4 percent

    CNNLOL: -33 percent

    More details at the link.

    The only people watching CNN are Comfort Dogs lost in transport and waiting in the Dallas airport lounge for a new flight.

    And they're like, "Can't we just watch Paternity Court?" And also, "Brian Stelter looks like a plus-sized snausage."

    Thanks to Guy Mohawk.

    Big: Greg Gutfeld's weekend show gets higher ratings that almost all of the horrible late-night "comic" shows, but the media constantly talks about them, and never mentions Gutfeld.

    38 I'm telling you, you could destroy CNN by launching a new cable news outfit that was straight down the middle (but with high production values and talent). CNN has become so clownishly partisan that a large portion of their audience would switch over to a more "USA Today" approach to cable news.

    It's been tried repeatedly (OANN, et al).

    Cable companies won't give up the channel slot.

    What you'd have to do is buy some non-news network already carried on cable/satellite/streaming systems and re-brand it to a news channel.

    Just got Levin's new book, and in the first chapter he cites a comprehensive analysis of media coverage of the first 100 days of PDT's Presidency.
    Guess what? Of the big MFM networks (he mentions eight of them, I think), negative coverage ranged from 90% (CNN), down to 70% or the stories being negative.
    The surprise for me was Fox News. They were 52% negative vs 48% positive. So, even though they were demonstrably even-handed, the *perception* that has been manufactured by the MFM is that Fox News is 'in the tank' for Trump. In reality, during that time period they were actually 'fair and balanced'.

    Jeez, I was just reminded that Oberlin was the scene of a hate crime hoax in 2013. For months, Oberlin allowed the drama of a campus besieged by racist threats to play out in the national media. And, in the end, that drama was exposed as a prank. What was particularly an eye-opener is that Oberlin campus officials apparently had known that the racist, anti-Islamic, homophobic threats plaguing Oberlin were the work of a couple of students who (when caught) claimed they were trying to "raise awareness".

    Oberlin never admitted that this drama had nothing to do with real, actual hate. Basically, they participated along with the "pranksters" in perpetuating the hoax.

    Sarah Sanders Will Hang Up Her Spokeswoman Spurs Next Month

    Roger Kimball documents the Mean Girls of the press cursing her.

    Then we come to another leitmotif in the anti-Sanders orgy that has so delighted the anti-Trump stalwarts commenting on Sandersís departure. I mean the fact that she long ago dispensed with daily press briefings. 'Other press secretaries and the administrations they served have catered to us, why donít you?'

    Here I come to a melancholy truth that, being of a charitable disposition, I hesitate to impart to the yapping pack of sensitive and entitled scribes who have closed ranks against the president and his staff. It is this: Donald Trump does things differently from other presidents. You may have been used to being fed pabulum daily by previous administrations, some of which you treated with hostile disdain, some with uncritical adulation.

    But nowhere, except in the odiferous annals of your inflated self-importance, is it written that you are entitled to daily, weekly, or monthly press briefings. I know that is a blow to your vanity, but there it is. Mirabile dictu, the republic survives, even in the face of your neglect. The truth is, as any dispassionate observer will acknowledge, that Donald Trump and Sarah Sanders have treated the press with far more courtesy and candor than they have treated them.

    What the press cannot abide is their continued existence: that Donald Trump is still, even now, even after they, thundering bullfrogs of the press, have laid out their objections to an indifferent populace. How could they, the ingrates. And now a Trump loyalist is departing. Let's hound her on the way out and exhibit just how small, ungracious, and craven we are.

    13 How very....woke of them. I guess.

    First they made fun of her weight, and then her makeup, and then her accent, and then, just about anything the usual mean girls of jr. high could come up with.

    What they couldn't fault was her composure, her intelligence, and her unswerving devotion to duty. None of these three things even blip the radar for these imbeciles, because they have never experienced any of them themselves.

    Most of the bullies used to be the limp-wristed, nerd-faced asshats who got pushed around in high school and think it is the epitome of elitism to do the same to others, once the rest of us have grown up and moved on.

    I'm still waiting for the adults to show up work in the press, but so far, no luck.

    As a woman in a traditionally male profession during the 1980's, I endured so much of this nonsense by simply realizing that, if the called me "bitch," it meant I was doing my job and not falling down like the good ol' boys expected.

    You don't take flak if you are not over the target.

    It isn't nice, or easy, or display of mature adulthood, but it is, in the end, just a bunch of words.

    I expect Sarah Sanders knows that and continues apace.

    Woman Discovers Herself as a Lesbian, Leaves Her Loving Husband and Children

    This is, of course, being portrayed as a wonderful, brave act on the voyage of self-discovery by CNN.

    Now, ask yourself: Would the media be praising a man who decided that he, like this woman, was dissatisfied in his marriage and left his kind wife and needful children to pursue more fulfilling sexual prospects?

    No, of course not. A straight man would be attacked in the press for leaving an intact, loving marriage for a woman, whereas women are considered flighty creatures with a child-like level of moral comprehension (yay, infantilizing feminism!), and of course gays are straight-up Holy Creatures, Fabulous Angels fashioned directly by God's hand, who mere human beings are required to endlessly praise.

    Psst: A lot of men are dissatisfied in their marriages, CNN. If they see a hot chick on SNL, will you praise them too for abandoning their families?

    Rod Dreher:

    CNN runs Pride Month essay by married mother of two (a former CNN reporter) who watches Saturday Night Live, decides to leave her husband and break her family up to live as a lesbian. No, really, this is a thing that happened:


    But there I was, at 36 years old, realizing I didnít know myself at all.

    I had everything I thought made my life perfect. I was married to my best friend and we had two beautiful, healthy and hilarious children, with successful careers and a beautiful home.

    My life would change forever after a simple Google search in November 2016. I had just seen Kate McKinnon perform the song "Hallelujah" on SNL and discovered that sheís a lesbian. That shocked me because she didnít fit the awful stereotype often depicted in the media.

    I quickly declared her my "new girl crush." But it was more than that.

    At that moment, I realized that I wanted a relationship with a woman like her -- but I felt terrible for even having this thought, as someone who was faithfully married.

    It was slowly becoming clear to me that I was not straight.

    "I wanted." So she made it happen. More:


    I kept waiting for the moment where I would realize I was no longer gay so I could put a halt to everything. My family was being shattered and I couldnít stop it. I constantly had to remind myself, "You get one life. This is your life and no one else's."

    No, Melisa Raney, youíre wrong. When you married and had children, your life was no longer your own exclusively.

    But, woman. But, gay.

    Different rules.

    Are women adults with responsibilities and the expectation of honor or are they children who are free to pursue each whim because they don't know any better and can't be expected to know any better?

    They cannot be either or both, depending on what the current leftwing sexual propaganda needs them to be.

    Today's Feminism-Forward Woman

    She can be anything she wants to be -- including an irresponsible tweener girl, when she feels the pangs of young romance moving through her.

    16 Just watched "Top of the lake: China Girl," an Australian murder mystery series by Jane Campion. One oft he main characters, played by Nicole Kidman, is a woman who abandons her husband and child to go off and be a new-foudn lesbian. Amazingly, she is portrayed as a creepy selfish bitch. And her lesbian girlfriend is an infuriating overly intelelectual asshole who analyzes every real-world event in absurd mythological terms. E.g. "My daughter just ran off with a pimp!" "Oh, it's part of the Hero Arc; she needs to find her inner Circe," etc.

    Pretty amazing that Campion (herself a feminist) portrayed these idiots as being the idiots they are.

    54 You know that sad feeling you get when a marriage fails?

    I can just never get that for a gay marriage.

    55 Honey could you get the kids I've got something to tell you all.

    I have become convinced that I am really only attracted to smokin hot blond women between 18 and 24. I'm leaving you. Hope you will understand this is who I am.
