The Morning Report - 2/20/19

meLi.jpg

Good morning kids. Wednesday is here and before we get to the usual chazarei, did you know that there was a massive terror bombing in India late last week? I sure as hell didn't. 40 Indian police reservists were killed in a car bombing last Thursday in the perpetually troubled region of Kashmir, the bloodiest attack there in decades, evidently. The Indian government is not accepting what it calls a "lame excuse" from Pakistan and this could start the sabers rattling in the subcontinent. Stay tuned.

Back over here in the gradually dissolving United States, the latest in the Jussie Smollett hate-crime hoax is that his Nigerian confederates are claiming he fabricated and mailed the hate letter to himself a week before the attack. Shocking, I know. Some good philosophical essays on what this all portends politically and culturally so do have a go. And as was covered here yesterday evening, it's rather satisfying that the National Laughingstock, aka Washington Post was hit with a $250 million libel suit from MAGA-hat Covington teen Nick Sandmann. That paper was equally complicit in pimping the Smollett lie as well. Go long on computer coding schools.

In Border Wall and Amnesty news, upwards of 500,000 illegal aliens are expected to invade us this year, Irish Beta O'Rourke flip-flops and says that maybe a wall is needed here and there, ranchers along the border are terrorized into silence when it comes to drug trafficking on their land, one of Nancy Palsi's spark-of-humanity ninos is accused of raping a Kentucky teenager and the case for the border wall as well as the emergency declaration and why the wall alone is not going to solve this crisis. Effectively enforcing the laws on the books, ramping up apprehension and repatriation and cutting off access to our welfare state is the solution. Sadly, that's a non-starter given who and what constitutes our politicians, Trump and others notwithstanding.

We spoke of "Bro-Fo" Omar and Rancida T-Labia's Joo-Hate and I'm sure there won't be a lull in that for the next two years either, but those two frauds are going to be speaking at a fundraiser for CAIR, the Hamas-linked front group. Elsewhere, Meredith Watson, the accuser of Virginia Lt. Governor Justin "Poonman" Fairax says she is willing to testify in the open and Colorado's secretary of state is all about transparency... except when it comes to revealing her e-mails about her support of the national popular vote.

On the Civil War 2.0 front, a 7-year-old boy gets slimed as "Little Hitler" for daring to raise money for the Border Wall and a group of thugs goes on a rampage at a Border Patrol museum and memorial in El Paso. [COMMENT SELF-REDACTED]

To politics we go where despite everything Gallup has Trump at 44% approval with a jump of 7 points, another poll shows One-Time-Proud American Obama-wifey and Joey Bidet the top 2020 Dem contenders, the President pulls $1 billion from California and Gavin Nuisance cries like a titty-baby, Tu-Ca rhetorically slaps around an identity politics pimp, Kamala-Toe Harris' father is not exactly thrilled about what she had to say about her Jamaican heritage, mon, Bernie Sanders shoves his farshimmelt corpse into the Dem Klown-Kar, two essays on the dead and moldering Republican Party and the salutary effect of President Trump, and for comic relief, Kirsten Jello-Brain gets totally blown off at an Iowa diner.

Abortion: SCOTUS slaps down an attempt to intimidate the church and a pro-life group will show an ultrasound on the big billboard at Times Square.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: More on Lara Logan's fleeing the Agitprop Media cult, David Horowitz on the attempts to silence him vis a vis the Kavanaugh persecution and Smollet Hoax and schaden-boner over Bezos flopping in NYC. Meh, he flopped and New York flopped.

To the Mueller Inquisition and Deep State coup, where Judicial Watch is slapping the DoJ/FBI with a lawsuit to get the records about the coverup of their crimes, and with Rosenpenis gone next month and Barr in, will there be any sort of real investigation into the aforementioned as well as the Clinton/Obama crimes that led to it all? I doubt it.

Foreign Desk: Along with the tensions in Kashmir, Caroline Glick is high on the recent Warsaw Middle East security conference, Yellow Vest protests are still going on despite the media blackout, Jewish cemeteries in France still being desecrated by swastikas, and commie intimidation ramps up ahead of a Cuban vote to reform their constitution. Let's send Carter and Bader-Meinhoff's corpse to monitor it.

Speaking of the religion of peace, the Alabama woman who joined ISIS and slimed America on Twitter wants to come home, a related piece on Euro-thugs who went to fly the black flag and want to now return, and the mother of the knife-wielding Palestinian who was just turning his life around fills us in on some of Mohammed's favorite activities. Feh.

Domestically, we mentioned the death of California's high speed rail-fail, the Never-Trumper Koch Bros. crony who did all he could to sabotage the President's immigration agenda is now being rehired by VP Pence (what the fuck?!), Salena Zito and Betsy McCaughey with their takes on the Amazon/NYC debacle, lamenting GOP judicial picks as Roberts and Kavanaugh screw us over on a death penalty case, Wyoming retains its death penalty, and the back and forth of conservatives vis a vis medical marijuana.

Education: Megan Markle is a fucking idiot but at least she's on the other side of the pond, and Daniel Greenfield with an important story about a battle in Arizona to try and thwart classroom indoctrination. If you go to FrontpageMag-dot-com, (which you all should bookmark) there is a similar story about this happening in Maine and I'm sure all over the country. This is the place where you can engage and fight most effectively.

Red-Greens: EPA is pulling out of talks to negotiate the Obama fuel standards with California. Why the government is negotiating with California over this, or anything really, is beyond me. Funny how they turn to the 9th and 10th amendment and "states rights" to shield them after doing all they can for decades to destroy the Constitution for the rest of us. Screw.

Hither and Yon: Suddenly, a John Wayne Playboy interview from 1971 makes Leftists go nutsy-fagin and finally, more Groucho, less Karl. You bet your life.

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue. Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

So far it is just "rumors" that Bar will be nominated. I don't know about this guy. Trump's picks so far have not been the best possible and this toad has worked for a number of far left liberal institutions. But, as I said, 'rumors'. We will have to wait and see on both cases.

Jussie sends threatening letter to himself? Way to kick one in your own goal:

Whoever knowingly so deposits or causes to be delivered as aforesaid, any communication with or without a name or designating mark subscribed thereto, addressed to any other person and containing any threat to kidnap any person or any threat to injure the person of the addressee or of another, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

We must end those socialized payments to all immigrants, legal or illegal. And we must start hitting people who hire illegals with something other than a slap on the wrist. Huge fines for 1st offense and fines and prison for 2nd and more.

78 Per Daily Caller, they weren't sure which way Kavanaugh voted on the TX death penalty case, as it was an unsigned opinion. But that penisbrain Roberts definitely voted with the libs to block.

On the repeal of the CAFE standards (announcement expected today), good riddance to bad rubbish pushed by TFG and his eco-cronies. The best part is it looks like they are going to take away CA's waiver to set their own standards for fuel efficiency.

Too bad Tesla and Musk were counting on this escalating standard to sell moar electric vehicles.

And on the Jussie front, CWB is reporting that the feds have been involved in issuing subpoenas via a grand jury on the 'hate' letter; that carries much heavier penalties than a false police report. Ruh roh.

_______________

I think it's kind of entertaining that a mixed-race, middle-aged cable t.v. actress, who most people had never heard of, straightens her hair and thins her nose to make herself look whiter, then finds a dim white prince who is willing to become her third husband, and then becomes a media celebrity solely because of her marriage to said white prince, and then proceeds to publicly diss white people.

It's emblematic of the stupid times we live in.

85 RE: Border Wall and Security

I've been spending way too much time on Google maps and reading up on DHS's plans for new and upgraded walls and I'm thinking maybe a good strategy would be to worry less about Texas and instead focus on getting California and New Mexico done in time for next summer. Texas is geography and legally daunting while Arizona has a huge border with few cities located near by.

The Admin has been making great progress with their CA and NM projects. San Diego is a few months away from getting the new Wall done ( 14 miles ) for example and looking at the geography and where ports of entry are located I think you could add a couple 5 miles stretches of wall in New Mexico and call that state complete (unless you think wall should be placed in mountain ranges that have no road access). Then as a talking point the Admin could claim 2 out of 4 states done, we're halfway there!

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"I have waited, hoping they would right the ship. But they have not. In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti-LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs," Teresa Shook


Quote II

"I am disappointed. It used to be if you wanted to change something, you worked with the contract to change it," she continued. "They just said, ‘We don't want it,' and they are demonstrating against it and it's jobs. It's jobs. I've never seen anything like this." Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D., N.Y.)


Quote III

They spread fake news, and now they're making a bunch of excuses for spreading fake news. Then they wonder why people don't trust them.

The only alternative would be to admit they believed a ridiculous story because they wanted to believe it, and to apologize to the people they smeared by associating them with a hate crime that never actually happened. Jim Treacher

Victor Davis Hanson, always a good read, today a great read. The Autopsy Of A Dead Coup

No palace coup can take place without the perception of popular anger at a president.

The deep state is by nature cowardly. It does not move unless it feels it can disguise its subterranean efforts or that, if revealed, those efforts will be seen as popular and necessary—as expressed in tell-all book titles such as fired FBI Directors James Comey’s Higher Loyalty or in disgraced Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe’s psychodramatic The Threat.

In candidate and President Trump’s case that prepping of the battlefield translated into a coordinated effort among the media, political progressives and celebrities to so demonize Trump that his imminent removal likely would appear a relief to the people. Anything was justified that led to that end.

Goldman Sachs: "Is curing patients a sustainable business model?" analysts ask in an April 10 report entitled "The Genome Revolution."

"The potential to deliver 'one shot cures' is one of the most attractive aspects of gene therapy, genetically-engineered cell therapy and gene editing. However, such treatments offer a very different outlook with regard to recurring revenue versus chronic therapies," analyst Salveen Richter wrote in the note to clients Tuesday. "While this proposition carries tremendous value for patients and society, it could represent a challenge for genome medicine developers looking for sustained cash flow."

Social Justice Warrior raises hell with former employer.

Camila worked for Ristretto Roasters, my husband Din’s coffee roasting company in Portland, Oregon, for five years. She received regular promotions and by 2016 was earning a mid-five figure salary. In October of last year, Camila resigned. The end.

Or, the end until last month, when she sent an email to more than two dozen former and current Ristretto Roasters employees, alerting them to the YouTube series, #MeNeither Show, that fellow journalist Leah McSweeney and I launched in December 2018. In three half-hour episodes, we had discussed, among other topics, celebrities who have exploited the #MeToo movement, and the difference between sexual predators and those swept-up in the excesses of the current moment. The show’s “about” page reads, “#MeNeither is an almost-weekly conversation about the cultural issues of the day, and an attempt to create a space where people can find ways to think out loud through uncomfortable topics.”

No statue is safe. Karl Marx: Monument vandalised for second time in two weeks

Karl Marx's memorial in north London has been vandalised for the second time in two weeks.

The words "Doctrine of Hate" and "Architect of Genocide" are scrawled in red on the Grade I-listed grave in Highgate Cemetery.

This latest incident follows a "deliberate and sustained" hammer attack on 4 February that left the memorial badly damaged.

There have been no arrests in connection with either attack.

Friends of Highgate Cemetery Trust said the German philosopher's memorial would "never be the same again" following the previous attack

Keeping the ultimate secret from your children. Is it the right thing to do?

My Wife Was Dying, and We Didn’t Tell Our Children

The choice was unusual, but loving: We wanted them to live without the shadow of their mother's mortality hanging over them.

We decided not to tell the kids. Marla knew that once our three daughters understood that their mother had been given 1,000 days to live, they’d start counting.

Don't you just hate nosy neighbors? Police visit young entrepreneur.

As the Free Thought Project reported last year, 2018 was the year of the snitches as neighbors turned in fellow neighbors to authorities for selling water, lemonade, or for simply being black at your own apartment complex pool. This see something say something society is the wet dream of the authoritarian and as a recent case of a boy selling hot chocolate in Pennsylvania illustrates, it is showing no signs of slowing.

One would think that in the ostensible land of the free, a little boy selling hot chocolate to willing customers to warm them up on a winter’s day would never be an issue over which people would call the police. However, one would be wrong.

Andrew Donaldson, of Castle Shannon, received a hefty dose of the see something say something state earlier this month when his hot chocolate sales landed him in the cross hairs of police state dependent neighbors.

Naked, belligerent and Genius Award Winner.

-Cops today arrested a “naked and belligerent” Florida Woman for allegedly attacking her fiancée after he declined to have sex with her, according to a police report.

Officers responding early this morning to a disturbance call at a Vero Beach apartment building encountered Samantha Jewel Hernandez, 21, sans clothes and in an ornery mood. Hernandez (pictured at right) denied doing anything to her fiancée, “but was too intoxicated” to provide further information.

95 They spread fake news, and now they're making a bunch of excuses for spreading fake news. Then they wonder why people don't trust them.

What they refuse to face up to is that those people at Trump rallies who are booing them, felt disgusted with them long before Trump seriously entered the race for president. I know because if I were at a Trump rally, I would be booing right along with the rest.

I used to flip from MSNBC to FOXNEWS, to CNN, to HLN, to the alphabet network news shows. It reached a point where I was so disgusted with their liberal bias, that I stopped watching them entirely. It's been at least 10 years.

Our youngest is autistic with some other stuff. One of my favorite memories is when he was about four years old. I was struggling with the diagnosis and our plans and I was reading everything I could get my hands on, and I had bought a book that was essentially "How to Deal With the Weird Sh*t Autistic Children Do."

I often use post it notes in books to mark pages that I want to revisit. Sometimes I use the colored ones to indicate different things, too. One day I discovered that book where I'd left it but with all the post it notes removed and placed carefully beside one another - very nearly touching but all uniformly spaced - on the first few pages of the book, and all according to color and probably some further organization inside his head.

That moment taught me more than the books I'd read, and something about it let me know that everything would work out okay. Challenging and a downright PITA at times, but okay. Because we could still have fun. A different kind of fun that needed a different kind of thinking to see, but still fun.

157 One of the best concerts I ever saw, and it surprised me because it was so much better than I expected, was Lyle Lovett and his Large Band (it's Large not Big) in Bass Hall in Fort Worth.

He's the epitome of a performer who is infinitely better live than canned, and he has the gift of being a true entertainer, not just a performer. What amazed me the most was that his band of about 20 players would do about 5 songs in one style - say, bluegrass; and then they'd stop and execute a shift, just like a football team, and about 5 players would go off and 5 others would come on , and they'd do 50's rock. Then a bit later, a shift and a black soul chorus would come on and they'd do gospel with a bit of mo-town - and on, and on, for more than 3 hours, and I lost track of how many styles they did, all flawless. & Every time there wasn't music going, Lovett would stand in front, telling stories, doing standup comedy, talking about the band, everything, and he had the entire place eating out of his hand. More than 3 hours, and *everybody* hated to see the show end and wanted more.

It wasn't just the music, it was joyous to watch a professional who knows what true Entertainment is!

158 Evening Horde.

I'm having a day and my fam sure could use some horde prayers. The blurb up top about the decision to keep bad medical news from the kids has been acted out irl here today.

Spent the day at Cleveland Clinic with my uncomplaining better half. Long story short: her lead MD, a neurologist, noticed a marked increase in both the severity and frequency of her symptoms related to her constellation of auto immune issues. No surprise there. But, he wants to now bring in a Rheumatologist to get a deeper handle on her Lupus-like and arthritis issues. (Which, while major, have been secondary up until now.)

It's serious but we are not desperate and hopeful for a very slow decline where we annoy each other into our 90's.

Hard to believe but that's not the problem.

I never told my kids about their birth mother's mental illness. They were only 9 and 10 when she died. What would I say? Your mom's a loon? They may know now but they never speak of her. I think it still hurts too much.

My youngest lives with us now and has since his discharge from the Navy. All three of us here are enjoying the shit outta it. He is a great house guest. Kind, helpful, happy. He took his mother's death particularly hard oh so many years ago. He found her body and then didn't speak for about 2-3 months after that. I mean at all. After I remarried, in all ways except for genetic, R was and is his mom. She brought him out of his shell and is a developed into a fine, young man. So,

Last night at dinner I told him we were going to spend the day at CC. Whoa was he po'd. He demanded to know why in detail. And today he is stomping mad. (He never is normally) R went to talk to him after we got home to see if he would/could calm himself and to reassure him. I didn't go to med school but even a fool like me can see he thinks he is going to lose another mom. Well, he's going to at some point, he's 40 years younger than her.

I have never minded the sword of life's shittyness falling on me. But when the blast radius includes the kids it just makes me sick.

You are only ever as happy as your least happy kid.

Poop.

166 Little got in truck today when picked her up from school and started telling me about some weird guest speaker they had.

Apparently the woman wrote a fairly popular book on the dangers of being a helicopter parent and the need to let kids have autonomy and make mistakes.

During her address to the middle school assembly, she is whipping the kids into a celebratory frenzy about telling parents not to be reading their emails or looking at their phones. She invites one boy up and asks him what he is gonna do if his parents try to read his emails. Kid says "Tell them to back off!".
Speaker applauds and assembly goes nuts.

"Then", says little, "she called me up, Dad. And she asked me what I'd do if you wanted to read my text messages".

"Oh yeah? What did you stay?", I asked.

"I told her I didn't care if you read my texts, you are paying for my phone. I told her it was the government reading my texts that makes me mad."

"What did she say to that?"

"Nothing really. My history teacher started laughing really hard though."


Little makes me very happy and proud of her.

Never once have I seen him so much as slur a note. Guy is a consumate professional and an incredible musician.

And, yes. The large Band is the permutation you should not miss. Thoguh his solo stuff is also very good.

Posted by: GnuBreed at February 19, 2019 10:26 PM (Z4rgH)

Agreed.

In 2017 a co worker of mine killed himself. Found out after the fact he had terminal cancer-- and he had told NOBODY, including his parents, family, work, friends, anyone. He paid for all his treatments out of pocket to keep it from hitting his insurance and letting anyone know.

After two years the doc told him he was terminal. So he went to stay with his parents, then one day he went to Home Depot with his dad to buy some remodeling stuff. They came back to the house, smoked cigars on the back porch, he excused himself, went into the room he was staying in and shot himself in the head.

All I could think was: Cancer is awful shit. But that was an asshole thing to do to your frigging parents.

Except when you remember you saw them in their absolute musical prime twenty five years ago and it cost you $10.

But I have no problem with them doing it, and I hope they make $10M every tour. I'm just too cheap to pay that now no matter how much I enjoyed them when I was younger.

FWIW: my sister-in-law was diagnosed with Lupus a few years ago. Things looked pretty bad. I spent many a night letting my niece vent because she freaked at the thought of losing her mom. My brother was taking his wife back and forth to doctors. Eventually, the treatments kicked in and started to work. She's really better now and back to her old self; she still takes some medicine. Once in a while, she'll have a day where she's a little 'off', but we'd probably never notice it if we hadn't spent so much time on high alert.

214 So Karl Lagerfeld bit the dust.
(He was head designer at Chanel for several years, in case you didn't know.)

He was a creep, TBH, but had a knack for offending the Ruling Class just as often as he offended decent folk.

He howled with laughter at the American media for considering Michelle Obama a fashion icon.
And after the French Assembly passed the law allowing gay "marriage," he (being gay) said he would indeed marry --- but would wait a few years until the Assembly allowed him to marry his cat.

I thought of all places the Horde would recognize when someone just needs to vent, and not that I must be sending out some desperate cry for help or that I'm soliciting unwanted and unhelpful advice. Instead I'm peppered with banal self help tripe.

Get more sunlight.
Ride a fucking horse.
Walk in the woods.
Do a combat sport.
Volunteer somewhere.
Write more.

Thanks guys. Man, I've been such a fucking idiot to not realize how simple it all is. Why'd I bother going to grad school for Psych or hopping in and out of therapy since I was a preteen? I could have cured my depression with a leisurely stroll through the forest.

250 And I think it is wrong to not tell your children that Mom is very sick.

-
My sister was sick with cancer and did not tell our mother until a week or ten days before her death. They had a difficult relationship, I'm convinced that my mother was more than eccentric, was actually mentally ill, and my sister was convinced that had she known, my mother would have blamed her for getting cancer. I find that credible. I knew for a good two years before her death and felt uncomfortable that my mom didn't know but I thought it was my sister's decision. My mother died two months after my sister.

265 The best Lyle Lovett show we've seen, was at the Indian casino near Rome, NY, just Lyle, the drummer, and two excellent singers, one playing fiddle, the other guitar. We could touch the footlights.

We rode the elevator earlier with the drummer, Russ Kunkel, and had a brief chat. Russ was married to Nicolette Larson long ago, she of the sweet voice.

After the concert, we ran into the fiddle player, Luke Bulla, in the lobby and told him how much we liked the show. Luke has a terrific voice.

We saw Lyle and Vince Gill in a two-man act and while good, it was not as good as Lyle with those three.

One a full-moon night in Denver a few years ago, we were lucky to see Lyle and his large band at Red Rocks, from the center of row 6. Great show!

I have learned to play and sing some of his songs, one of my favorites being "West Texas Highway."

I'm not offended, but we have one super-duper Dylan fan here on the ONT.

Golf Balls are round and not as dense as some poop can be. And poop can be odd shaped. Then there's the TP. some dissolves faster than others and will go faster and some stays together longer and creates friction slowing the load down.

307 "Is curing patients a sustainable business model?"

*******

Ah, the delicious irony. Medicine as an industry does not really want to cure disease.

Single gene therapy in the foreseeable future will have only very limited applications. But consider along with this the concept of "early detection" that is marketed under the trade name of "preventive medicine". There are particular instances where detecting a condition in the pre-symptomatic stage does not really give you an advantage in terms of treatment that improves life expectancy (for example, minor heart valve abnormalities).

What it does provide though is a plausible reason to schedule recurring evaluations to "monitor the progress" of the condition, even though it remains pre-symptomatic. In other words, come back for another $2000 test every year for the next 10-20 yeaars.

Talk about your sustainable revenue models!

The Eagles "Long Run" concert was excellent.

Best double bill concert was "The Moody Blues" and "Chicago." A couple of members of Chicago came out and jammed with "The Moody Blues."

Both bands were a bit past their prime, but, man, they were pros and knew what they were doing.

Runners up:

Ozzie Osbourne and Rush

Almost forgot, saw "Metallica" live.

Worst: Van Halen. Over amplified crap. Only good thing was Eddie doing an extended guitar solo.

Well, today I had my first infusion of some crap dubbed "Simponi Aria" for this damnable arthritis. It's a "biologic" TNF inhibitor and is immune suppressive.

My rheumatologist insisted. I'd been taking methotrexate for too long and he was worried about my liver, plus the last disease activity test showed the RA was increasing.

This stuff is ridiculously expensive. The dose I took today was about $2K -- just for the drug, two little vials.

My insurance would only cover so much of it, but the office managed to get me on some damned program to cover the rest of it. Supposedly.

No reactions to it so far. We'll see if it does any good.

Add it to the list of lies the press and their tools, the Dems, have collectively inflicted upon us.


That is the current starting point, should anyone think open communication is an option to solve the differences in political beliefs. But who, exactly, should one attempt to communicate?

It depends on the details. If she has 1000 days, they could at least wait until it becomes obvious that her health is failing, or until closer to the end. I've known a couple of families who had a family member with terminal cancer. When it takes a few years, it is emotionally draining on the family.

332 I don't think I've ever been to a concert. I did go to an F1 race last year and heard the symphony of engines, so that was pretty good. (Plus my fave driver started 18th and finished 2nd. I got to see him make a bunch of overtakes.)

Sorry Bro. I hope I was not contributing. I'm not sure why my own depression has been better the last couple years. Thinking about it this evening, there's more regular exercise, a new role at work I am really enjoying, and I got cochlear implants. I'm guessing only the first is easily replicable by others...

On that last, there was actually a whole hell of a lot happening in the world that I didn't know about. Hard to explain. A lot of little things, like numerical keypads, like for locks, make beeping noises. I'm still adjusting to all the new info. It's pretty great, TBH.

335 Vanya, I absolutely agree to suicide like that is a horrible thing to do to your family. But that was not the case here.

The mom just didn't want her kid's childhood stolen from them because of focus on her illness. Went through this with a SIL. She did her best to shield them until it was close to the end. They were little children and didn't need to be thinking about such things. They had fun with her, without worries, for several years before she died.

And all the other people who've tried to help, they meant well too. It just always reminds me of growing up with Tourette's, and how my family reacted before they knew what it was. "Have you tried...NOT doing that?"

Yeah. I have. My whole life.

I guess it just irked me that in the same thread where ace is firing back snarky spitballs at people crashing his keto party with their own well-meaning advice of "just eat less and work out more," I'm being given dimestore capsule tidbits of warmed over received wisdom. Like "get more sunlight" is going to be the epiphany that lofts me forever out of this cocoon of malignant, stifling ennui.

So if he's going to say "Well how much weight did you lose, champ" to anybody who offers the Government Accepted Food Pyramid advice, I'll say "How many major depressives have you cured lately, champ" to anybody telling me that their one little trick is going to solve for the variable in my personal unhappiness equation that no one has been able to crack for 31 years.

I hate my job but I also hate the process of getting a new one. I fulfilled a lifelong dream and now I feel empty, not to mention that I hit the apex of my little story and it's all downhill from here.

---

I mentioned struggling with a child's diagnosis above and sort of figuring out how to deal with a lifetime of unknowns, and it was miserable. I was surprised to find how useful going to a psychologist was. Not laying on the couch and talking about my dreams or any of that crap, but just being able to say things out loud that I couldn't or didn't want to say out loud to my wife or family because they would be disheartening and depressing. It's amazing how much it helped, too.

You're joking, right?

One word: Ferguson .

As Al Bundy explained to his son Bud, the Ferguson "the king of bowls" and "the Stradivarius of toilets"

He went on to elaborate further:
"Bud, the toilets of today aren't worthy of the name. They come in designer colors and they're too low. And when you flush them, they make this little weak, almost apologetic sound. Not the Ferguson. It only comes in white. And when you flush it, 'BA-WOOSH'. That's a man's flush, Bud. A Ferguson says, 'I'm a toilet. Sit down and give me your best shot'."

358 I think you should tell the kids you mom is sick but leave out the probability of death as that's a bit in the future and who knows maybe for quite a while.

Plenty of time to have that talk about dying and shit. Better to have fun with the kids and not turn every good time into a moment of tears because they know there's a limit.

But truthfully, there's always a limit. The moment you take your first breath you begin to die. No one gets out alive and that's a point that should be a part of any child's education. God forbid not by Gov't. A church or some other calm setting.

And it would be good to have older folks talk about how it feels to be approaching the end of the line. Too many ppl go thru life not really thinking about what's going to happen to them at different stages and how they can make that time be more pleasant than under other circumstances.

388 Robbie - parents of autistic children report higher stress levels than even parents of children with *terminal diagnoses*.

Which makes sense to me. With a terminal diagnosis, you know what will happen. With an autistic kid, he could grow up to be perfectly functional, or he could spend his life in a home, and it's surprisingly difficult to predict which way it's going to go. Mine appears to be on a good path now, but there was definitely a time when I feared he would never be able to communicate above the level of a two year old. (And said time coincided with my youngest gaining a total of 1.1 lbs from the age of 9 mos to the age of 18 mos, thanks to constant illness. He's fine now, but I was not sure he was going to live at all. That was stress and no mistake... Oof. I'm glad those times are over.)

400 Broseidon's going through post-jeopardy depression.

This is when you get somewhere you always wanted to get to, had a great time felt like the best you've ever felt in your life.

And that's the key. Over dose. There's plenty of other experiences that can reach that high.

You can even get that high if you train your mind to make it happen.

Don't need drugs to elevate your mood. Or any thing or anyone else. Yes it's good to have other people and goals and stuff but to be tough you need to be able to perk yourself up on command. It takes training and you have to work at it and sometimes it can be very hard to achieve but it is doable.

Yes, that's a big part of it. I'm also completely past the honeymoon phase where I basked in the glow of winning, and now I'm more pissed at how I lost the second game to somebody who I quite frankly don't think could even lace my boots in most other trivia competitions.

411 Robbie - parents of autistic children report higher stress levels than even parents of children with *terminal diagnoses*.

Which makes sense to me. With a terminal diagnosis, you know what will happen. With an autistic kid, he could grow up to be perfectly functional, or he could spend his life in a home, and it's surprisingly difficult to predict which way it's going to go. Mine appears to be on a good path now...

Same here. I can remember watching all of our friends' kids turning three and four and growing out of their "challenging" ages, and ours were just getting worse and worse. He was over five before he really got a handle on the world.

Compared to our oldest I have no problem saying that some special needs kids are the care equivalent of two, and possibly even three, typical kids.

I think that life is a zero sum game; you get out of it what you put into it. I don't mean that you should go climb Mount Everest. Rather I mean that you should value the things in your life that you enjoy. Yes, especially these days, people concentrate on the meaningless and superficial and there is much to despise.

But to the people I really wanted to impress - my friends in the trivia community - I feel like I let them down. These are people who have won the Tournament of Champions - hell, one of them is Jeopardy's all time biggest money winner. And to a person, they basically said the same things. Yes, they all congratulated me, but they all said something like "Man, when I saw you win one I had you pegged for 5 or 6 more." Because they've actually faced me in person, and they know the level I usually play at. And I had my one chance to ever be even half as good as some of them, and I blew it. This is the one skill I've cultivated. It's the only thing I'll ever be elite at. I've won all sorts of smaller competitions against much tougher opposition, but this was the only one anybody cares about.

Posted by: nerdygirl at February 19, 2019 11:15 PM (+lVUW)

...

Her name is Jessica Lahey and she's actually got a very popular book, I think it's called The Gift of Failure, or something like that.

I actually agree with her to a large extent that helicopter parenting can get a little overzealous, that you need to let kids make mistakes and fail and learn from that.

But that really is a message that needs to be delivered to parents, not to a room full of 7th, 8th graders and high schoolersthat you are instructing to disobey and disrespect their parents.

It's a private Christian school, and they actually kinda expected some blowback from parents because I got an email this evening sort of preemptively apologizing and explaining that the school didn't necessarily agree with the speaker.

I'm a single dad, so my daughter and I probably have a different t relationship than most dad/daughters these days. I actually wasn't all that surprised that she bucked the trend of the speaker and other kids. But the bit about the government, well, I'm not gonna lie, it made me grin like a Cheshire Cat.

475 Dylan and The Band, 1974 tour, was outstanding. I was a freshman in college. Dylan and The Band were made to play together. The Band blended in with Bob and his vocal limitations weren't so bad. And Bob's vocals added to Robbie Robertson's, making a unique and better sound.


They played the Seattle Coliseum nearly 4 hours, together, then each had their own set, then they played together again.

Good times. Zeppelin 75 and Robin Trower 75 were top notch, too.

Anyone here ever actually hear the song "Luck Be A Lady Tonight" by Frank Sinatra?

IMHO it's kind of funny. He's basically begging/threatening Lady Luck to be good to him at the craps and roulette tables.

Whereas in real life, if Sinatra lost money in Vegas, it was no problem. He'd just have the pit boss killed.

487 Broseidon,

Sorry you're in a funk... Don't know what you posted to elicit the responses you got, but you can't blame peeps for trying. Sounds like you asked for advice or commiseration, and people responded with what they thought might help. All those things probably helped them at down times in their lives, but most people don't know what true depression feels like. My son has depression, so I know, by proxy, just a bit.

You can get through it. Many have and--don't take this the wrong way--but you're not that special. You're young yet; there will be many peaks ahead.

PS: Belated congrats on your J! showing. My favorite show. Would love to try out, but I wouldn't have anything interesting to say during the little contestant chat time.

Posted by: Mrs. Peel at February 19, 2019 10:30 PM (dksSP)

Of course, the fallacy there is that one needs repeat customers. Suppose you had an absolutely perfect lung cancer cure, that would completely cure lung cancer, and regenerate the damaged tissue. Guaranteed. I don't think a hundred grand would be too much to ask, would it. You get your life back, for a hundred G's. I'd do it, even if it meant selling my house and living in the back of a van down by the river.

There would be enough new cases of lung cancer arising spontaneously, forever, to keep the purveyor of that cure rolling in hookers and blow for centuries.

Would I pay a hundred G's for permanent immunity to the common cold? Probably not, since colds are mainly an inconvenience and a week's discomfort, not a death sentence. But I might be persuaded to pay one thousand bucks. I would likely "earn" that back by way of work and/or travel opportunities not forgone.

551 No, Ken wasn't at the studio. He once came to the event I go to every summer in Vegas. Used to be called TCONA (Trivia Championships of North America), old management was shit with finances and some attendees took up the mantle so this year it has new branding, it's just called Trivia Nationals.

It's where I met all of the game show elite performers that I'm friendly with now. I barely interacted with Ken, but one event used to be this odd trivia dodgeball hybrid. Our teams faced each other and I nailed him in the face one time.

567 No statue is safe. Karl Marx: Monument vandalised for second time in two weeks
Karl Marx's memorial in north London has been vandalised for the second time in two weeks.
The words "Doctrine of Hate" and "Architect of Genocide" are scrawled in red on the Grade I-listed grave in Highgate Cemetery.

This latest incident follows a "deliberate and sustained" hammer attack on 4 February that left the memorial badly damaged.

There have been no arrests in connection with either attack.

Friends of Highgate Cemetery Trust said the German philosopher's memorial would "never be the same again" following the previous attack

In fact, there should not even be a memorial; he should just be forgotten.

Not a smart welder. An average guy who just wants to make truck payments on something new and lives hand to mouth like so many people do? Probably. But the Humanities grad caught up with him. Like water, they each found the same level.

A smart welder who invests as soon as can? No way the college kid catches him unless he's the 2-3% that gets some dream job paying six figures.

I can't explain it. I saw an endless parade of people disconnected from reality who 3000 years ago would be nothing but target practice for chariot archers. I still haven't found words. The first thing I noticed was the parking lot. There were shopping cart return areas every 10 frigging parking spots, yet the every empty space had a cart sitting in it. Some sections of the parking lot was a sea of shopping carts. I parked 100 yards away just to avoid it all. These lazy fucking useless eaters couldn't push a cart 2 spots away to put it in the collection area. None of them did, because while I was outside having a smoke I was watching. Some cars hit other carts and sent them flying

Then I see 2 dudes set off some alarm walking INTO the store, and then flip off the chick working the door when she tried to stop them. 5 minutes later I see some whale ass chick with a red bull call the same door chick a bitch. It just went on and on and on. Sometimes an actually horde of people showed up at the door at once like it was a frigging Iron maiden concert. It was 10pm. Where the hell do they grow these people? I can't put it into words. I'm just convinced society is just too far gone to survive.

631 TJ Cunningham, a Seahawks draft from CU, was murdered in Denver the other day. He was an assistant HS principal and a faithfully married father of five. He had a dispute with his thug neighbor over a parking spot.

He invited his thug neighbor to meet his big, strong self at a nearby location to hash things out like men.

This thug neighbor showed up and shot this upstanding member of society three times in his chest. Because he's a fucking coward.

But you'll hear about Jussie all day, and nobody cares about TJ, because this is black-on-black crime.

633 IIRC the Volt has a gasoline engine that doesn't do anything besides charge the electrical bits that run the car. Pretty clever, honestly, but one of the things that makes me not consider them at all. I doubt there's much of anything on that car that is terribly user-friendly (or cheap) when it comes time to repair something.

I played some bar trivia with some of my young friends. It turns out that having an age mix is a good thing.

This is simple, really.

I'd wager that the larger Mo Meets could pony up the price of airfare, room & board, if you could fly in and put on an ersatz "Jeapordy" game for a bit of the night's entertainment.

If that proves successful, see about a licensing agreement with Trebek's production company, and take the show on the road, for real.

To "be" the game would be much more winning than merely "winning", I'd think.

All I saw was a long series of stills, plus sound. The stalled vehicle with Mickey Rooney (?) in it is a Universal Carrier, aka "Bren Gun Carrier". Light armor; the Weasel is a soft-skin vehicle. A weasel would not get stuck in soft sand, but a Carrier might, as it is twice as heavy, and has much narrower tracks.

I saw a complete (presumably working) one at a military vehicle show in Tempe last month. Never had a ride in one. I actually owned one for a while, but it was a complete wreck, and I donated it to a museum. The Weasel has languished in my shop for several years. I need to fire it up, and service some things. What I should do is remove the engine, and paint it and the engine compartment in the correct O.D., replace the oil pan, which leaks, with a good one that I have two of. Spiff up the interior a bit. Then remove the right side track, and straighten the bent front axle, which causes it to continually veer to the right, and slows it down. I think that could be done by slipping a long piece of thick-wall pipe over the axle, and just leaning into it fiercely. Axle is 2" solid steel, and theoretically removable, but I would not want to try it.

My mom remained in the car (she hates shopping) while I was on a lengthy Superstore visit. I came out, loaded up the groceries, got in and listened to her tale.

First, the attention grabber -- Someone took a shit on the car. Say What??? Yep. Some homeless lookin' dude ambled up to the passenger side rear quarter panel, dropped trou, leaned against the car and took a dump. Then pulled up trou and ambled off.

Me -- Well, I guess we need to stop at the carwash on the way home. She nods.

Then she told me about a poor black lady, all hunched over and walking like every step was a major accomplishment. Like if she had two bad hips and knees.

She lurched over to several cars, all of which were being driven by black females, and panhandled them. Scored a few bills too per mom. Then a cop car entered the parking lot. Ms. Lurch suddenly straightened up and began walking rapidly for the nearest lot exit. Shades of Trading Places.

She got away, too. And people wonder why I'm cynical about bad luck stories.

So I came across a link to a sort of "footnotes" document to the Budget Deal passed. Some interesting detail that you don't get in the main Bill.]

One thing is just how expensive Wall is to build in Rio Grande...

Levee Wall : $345 M for 11 miles
...that's $31 Million per mile!

Pedestrian wall : $1B for 44 miles
... $22 Million per mile (must involve buying pricey private property)

Compare that to the $3.7 per mile it cost to build 20 miles in the NM desert.

This is a not a new part of culture. Wishful Thinking or believing that your beliefs can create something real is a big fault of the human condition. Every progressive position or program is built around this faulty logic.

Thinking that billionaires are a problem and wishing that there were no such thing was thinking that millionaires were the problem and wishing there were no such thing back in the early 1900s. And if we go back to 1800s it was the industrialist or rich merchant that was the problem and wishing them away would somehow make our life better.

Look at the Californication Last Train to Nowhere. I can go to LAX, BUR, or SNA and be in SJC or SFO in about an hour. Wishing that a train can do they same thing is just that, Wishing Thinking.

I think the last election may be the best example ever. HRC was a drunk, lazy, evil, hack semi-politician that never had a job or assignment that was not about scams, corruption, or deceit. Wishing Thinking allowed millions of people to believe that it was her turn to rule. They all believed that she came into her kingdom that they would be rewarded.

903 Thinking that billionaires are a problem and wishing that there were no such thing was thinking that millionaires were the problem and wishing there were no such thing back in the early 1900s.

I think that's part of it but I think his intent is to have people focus on the firing of Comey as the trigger that started everything and have people ignore anything that went on previously.

That's why the bogus story of the 25th Amendment came out, his talk of briefing the Gang of 8 in May 2017 and the fact that in his new book he doesn't even mention the Russia dossier. He's trying to get a largely apathetic public to ignore what really happened and believe his version of events.

It's not going to work but he has nothing else.

Lin Wood Files $250 Million Lawsuit Against the Washington Post for Defaming Innocent Child Nick Sandman

Fifty million here and fifty million there and suddenly Jeff Bezos has to economize on his Penis Filter photoshop suite.



This is just the suit against the Washington Post. He has fifty three other defendants he's looking to sue.

INTRODUCTION

1.ThePost is a major American daily newspaper...

Is it?

... published in Washington, D.C. which is credited with inventing the term "McCarthyism" in an editorial cartoon published in 1950...

2.In a span of three (3) days in January of this year commencing on January 19, the Post engaged in a modern-day form of McCarthyism by competing with CNN and NBC, among others, to claim leadership of a mainstream and social media mob of bullies which attacked, vilified, and threatened Nicholas Sandmann ("Nicholas"), an innocent secondary school child.

3.The Post wrongfully targeted and bullied Nicholas because he was the white, Catholic student wearing a red "Make America Great Again" souvenir cap on a school field trip to the January 18 March for Life in Washington, D.C.when he was unexpectedly and suddenly confronted by Nathan Phillips ("Phillips"), a known Native American activist, who beat a drum and sang loudly within inches of his face ("the January 18 incident").

4.Nicholas stood quietly and respectfully for several minutes after being targeted and bullied by Phillips and Nicholas’body language remained non-aggressive and passive throughout the incident.

...

7.In targeting and bullying Nicholas by falsely accusing him of instigating the January 18 incident, the Post conveyed that Nicholas engaged in acts of racism by "swarming" Phillips, "blocking" his exit away from the students,and otherwise engaging in racist misconduct.

8.The Post ignored basic journalist standards because it wanted to advance its well-known and easily documented, biased agenda against President Donald J. Trump("the President") by impugning individuals perceived to be supporters of the President.

9.As a 16-year old secondary school student, Nicholas' political beliefs are anything but established and entrenched in his young mind.

10.Nicholas has zero history of political activism or aggressiveness and did not exhibit any such conduct even when confronted with unbridled racist attacks by activist bullies at the National Mall.

11.The Post's campaign to target Nicholas in furtherance of its political agenda was carried out by using its vast financial resources to enter the bully pulpit
by publishing a series of false and defamatory print and online articles which effectively provided a worldwide megaphone to Phillips and other anti-Trump individuals and entities to smear a young boy who was in its view an acceptable casualty in their war against the President.

12.Unlike the Post's abuse of the profession of journalism, Plaintiffs do not bring this lawsuit to use the judicial system to further a political agenda. This lawsuit is brought against the Post to seek legal redress for its negligent, reckless, and malicious attacks on Nicholas which caused permanent damage to his life and reputation.

13.The Post bullied an innocent child with an absolute disregard for the pain and destruction its attacks would cause to his life.

14.The Post proved itself to be aloud and aggressive bully with a bully pulpit.

15.In this country, our society is dedicated to the protection of children regardless of the color of their skin, their religious beliefs,or the cap they wear.

16.But the Post did not care about protecting Nicholas. To the contrary, the Post raced with a reckless disregard of the facts and truth because in this day and time there is a premium for being the first and loudest media bully.

17.The Post wanted to lead the charge against this child because he was a pawn in its political war against its political adversary –a war so disconnected and beyond the comprehension of Nicholas that it might as well have been science fiction.

18.The Post must be dealt with the same way every bully is dealt with and that is hold the bully fully accountable for its wrongdoing in a manner which effectively deters the bully from again bullying other children. In a civil lawsuit, punishment and deterrence is found in awarding money damages to the victim and target of the bully.

19.In order to fully compensate Nicholas for his damages and to punish, deter,and teach the Post a lesson it will never forget, this action seeks money damages in excess of Two Hundred and Fifty Million Dollars ($250,000,000.00) --the amount Jeff Bezos, the world's richest person, paid in cash for the Post when his company, Nash Holdings, purchased the newspaper in 2013.

I'll say it for you: It moved.

The prosecution is the punishment.

While not prosecuting these fks, they will be persecuting their bank accounts to pay the lawyers. Not Bezos per se but the individuals that will be sued next.

144 >>>Is this supposed to sound a little tongue-in-cheek? Because frankly, the language comes across as.... less than professional; "teach them a lesson they will never forget" doesn't sound like esquire-speak to me.

Admittedly, I know fuck-all about how this sort of thing should sound.

well, I agree, it is strident and very political. But an Introduction is written in a casual way to tell a story. The introduction is not the legal argument, it's the narrative story behind the case.

If I were representing him, I'd argue that this incident will follow Sandman the rest of his life, and will adversely affect his college and career opportunities.

He's 16, and so we're talking about the economic loss he would suffer over the next 49 years. It doesn't take a very large number when multiplied by 49 (and including inflation, time value of money, etc.) to come up with a whopping sum.

And besides, Sullivan is another time when the Court created law. It created a situation where you have to get a Judge to decide if you are a public figure or not.

Thus a normal citizen cannot know which standard is in effect, without litigation?

Posted by: Don Q at February 19, 2019 08:18 PM (NgKpN)

230 I doubt that any publication (as opposed to individuals) will face any consequences for this.

But certainly not WaPo or NYT. These papers are Party mouthpieces, and slavishly loyal ones, with close ties to the IC.

Never forget that the Courts are loyal to the government, not the law. Bezos might have to appeal for awhile, but he'll eventually hit the level where a judge (or nine) will do his duty and put an end to this insolence by the commoners.

Best case scenario: he settles and makes this go away.

There will not be a final Court decision that runs counter to Party aims, or constrains State-run media.

At least it'll be fun to watch and will be embarrassing for the Press, until the shitty denouement.

Btw, this is problem pharma faced vis a vis kids reportedly hurt by vaccines. Some idiot such as Jenny McCarthy blubbing about how Timmy was made autistic by a vaccine could result in $100 million judgments. (Bad luck, acts of God, and Jenny's less than pure previous life being dismissed as possible explanations).

That's why the law has been changed to prevent such lawsuits. Vaccines are a low margin product, and pharma only produces them as a public service. Until the law was changed, pharma was getting out of the business, which was pure downside otherwise.

247 I'm involved with a business working with high school kids, to help them apply to college. Most of our clients come from schools with terrible internal college counseling, and many of our clients are overwhelmed by how complex the application process is. If one of our clients had this incident in their background, and the imputations against their character were allowed to stand unchallenged, I'd bet they would have no hope whatsoever of going to any decent college. Doesn't matter how smart or accomplished their high school record, in this SJW world, they'd be finished.

281 Great Post. WOOT to Ace. Whilst coping with fast-induced dementia and general crankiness, a SJW advertising revenue raid, pirate ship server malfunctions, Ace has stayed current on the point-of-spear issues that live at the intersection of culture and politics from the Moron perspective, and has delivered yet another good story, and a big important one to the line of a large majority of posts here of late.

This law firm, Hemmer DeFrank Wessels, PLLC, and these two attorneys, L. Lin Woo, and Todd McMurty, is as advertised, the real deal. These are the type of dudes you bring on the field when you're going to Court, because not only are you going to win, you're going to do it in the Courtroom for the entire world to see. Indeed, as we'll see as they continue to file a string of lawsuits, the net damages will exceed $1B.

The plaintiff is a private-figure minor, on video, not doing what the Defendants said he did. Defamation laws disfavors public figures, but adds special duties to minors. The lawyers have a string of huge plaintiff verdicts under their belt for precisely these types of claims - libel and defamation.

The amount of damages here could very well be God Tier. The effect of losing this suit on the main stream media and social media users? Nothing short of earth shattering. Over/under on them also naming individual twitter users as co-defendants, jointly and severally liable?

We need to immediately commence a campaign to Court TV (if it's even around anymore) to fight like hell to get live cameras in this bitch!

I don't think I'd settle if I were a defendant unless it was for very
little. As egregious as the conduct was, you can't really harm a kid too
much with this kind of defamation; I doubt a jury's going to award a
whole lot, and you can always hope for rogue jurors, as it's the kind of
thing that folks will split on politically and might vote their
politics in the jury room. I don't really understand the sue everyone
for very large sums strategy.

Well the thing with death threats is you don't know who is serious and who isn't. You think if you had a bunch of emails, phone calls etc. etc. that you might be a bit un nerved? I mean some lunatic on Costco was threatening a guy with a gun over a MAGA hat. Apparently you've been hibernating. You have no idea what these fcks are capable of.

They've got a good case, based only on publicly available information. Before they even sent out their retraction demands, they notified all of the defendants publicly (and no doubt privately as well) to preserve all evidence. Now, if they DO find that any of the Defendants destroyed evidence, that alone creates a presumption of conscious wrongdoing and guilt, which in this case goes to the alleged "malice" of the Defendants, and malice is what let's you get to the punitive damages.

Morons, I'm telling you, this is THE case.

With all due respect, you miss the point. The threats are only a symptom.

If Sandman were on course to go to, e.g., Harvard, and then Harvard Law, that's out now. Clearly. We all know that. Horst Weasel got into Harvard - but not Cal State Long Beach - because he was a leftist poster boy. Sandman is exactly the opposite. David Duke would have a better shot at getting into Harvard.

So instead of coming out of college and law school and making $300,000/ y (offered to someone I know right after Yale Law), he'd be making maybe $75,000. Integrated over his working life - say, 45 years - that's a cubic shitload of money he's lost.

FFS -

Why not remove Trump for Murder I. See, you can convict and imprison the President if he commits premeditated murder. The law on Murder I says you just indict a suspect, present the case in front of a jury and if they convict. BAMN! Done!

Doesn't there actually have to be a murder?

The law says you can imprison someone convicted of murder so that's what we gonna do...

And because they're good attorneys, they no doubt duly reported each and every threat tweet and re-tweet to the police.

486 You missed the retraction because Tom Servo subsequently said he looked over the lawsuit and it didn't specifically say damages were sought based on death threats. So people appear to be just making up random fucking justifications for damages that the suit itself doesn't assert. That said, if those investigations turn up credible threats on Sandmann, I'd say it makes the suit worth more. They'd have to be very credible before I'd award anything like the damages sought though. People lose limbs and recover less; people lose loved ones and recover less.

Jesus this trope irritates the hell out of me."

I remember arguing that one YEARS ago, Leftists started that crap back in the 80's. You're right about the Supreme Court decision, but it was ALSO a policy decision by Jerry Brown's dad 2 years before Reagan took over as Governor that started to clear out all of the asylums. If you want to be very strict, based on the facts, the biggest criticism you can make of Reagan was that he didn't bother to reverse Pat Brown's policies when he took over. But you should also note that the AMA and the Psych association and everybody else put out official statements at the time saying it was the Absolute Right Thing to Do, and they supported it completely.

So "blaming" that issue on Reagan is idiotic. It's one of the few issues where the Democrats of the day supported him completely.

This whole "treatment in the community" horseshit started with three Cali politicos, at least one of whom was from the Santa Clara area. From there, it became a thing, and spread over the country, culminating in 1975 with O'Connor v. Donaldson, which IIRC was in Florida.

But Reds here in Cali were very big on the "treatment in the community" horseshit for years before that, and now they blame Reagan for it. I believe that California law may have been the impetus for the whole thing, as California was just experiencing the Great Locust Invasion at that time.

551 Leftists started that crap back in the 80's. You're right about the Supreme Court decision, but it was ALSO a policy decision by Jerry Brown's dad 2 years before Reagan took over as Governor that started to clear out all of the asylums.

Actually, they started the drumbeat (in CA) around 1970. It took some years to come to full malignant flower.

I knew a psychiatric nurse who lost her job when they closed down the mental hospital she worked in. They just basically unchained the gates and turned the nuts loose, having no legal basis on which to keep them.

Two years a local school was almost shot up by a raving nutjob, who but for two Mexican gardeners tackling him would have done so.

His neighbors had reported him to the cops on a monthly basis, but they had no legal grounds to drop the net on him. The standard now I believe is you have to show someone poses an IMMINENT threat to himself or others, or cannot take care of himself. And there wasn't any IMMINENT threat until he showed at the school armed to the teeth and bringing a propane cylinder to blow up the school. Apparently that was "imminent" enough to do the job.

Then the Bald Eagle returned and said with a smile, I see you have a mate! Have you had intercourse with her?
No, replied the man, for he and the woman knew nothing about each other.
Then the Bald Eagle called to Coyote who happened to be going by and said to him, Do you see that woman? Try her first!
Coyote was quite willing and complied but immediately afterwards lay down and died.
The Bald Eagle went away and left Coyote dead but presently returned and revived him.
How did it work? said the Bald Eagle.
Pretty well but it nearly kills a man! replied Coyote.
Will you try it again? said the Bald Eagle.
Coyote agreed, and tried again, and this time surprising her with anal.
Then the Bald Eagle turned to the man and said, She is all right now; you and she are to live together.

625 >>Men came after the animals and plants.
At first there were only a brother and sister until he struck her with a fish and told her to multiply and so it was.
In seven days a child was born to her and thereafter every seven days another.
and they increased very fast until there was danger that the world could not keep them.
Then it was made that a woman should have only one child in a year and after she should be surprised with anal and it has been so ever since.

Of course not. The government will invest all your retirement money in solar, wind, electric vehicle, and high speed rail companies, with people like AOC and Ilhan Omar sitting on the corporate boards.

Since these are the Investments of the Future, they will obviously yield much higher returns than stodgy traditional investments.

And if they don't, tough.

-------

I think they'll sue EVERYONE, including the fake Vietnam veteran Indian and individual twitter users. Not because of the money, but to meter out pudding level punishment.

This could be the case to set new rules about public discourse in social media. With so much money at stake, they could very well go after twitter and facebook as well, because the economics are there to justify trying to play new ground in the law. All of the legal theories we throw around started somewhere, in some case, where a judge decided to define a given wrong, and that decision was upheld through the appeals process, thus becoming the basis for hundreds of thousands of future cases. This could be that case to social media.

All I know is there are a lot of companies lawyering up tonight, getting ready for the storm. Then there's all the little people that jumped on the bandwagon, the people that don't have the means to hire top attorneys, and who also may very well be lassoed into this big boy.

Technical name is "diversity jurisdiction." 9th Circuit is a court of appeal and doesn't have original jurisdiction.

Posted by: Insomniac at February 19, 2019 09:58 PM (NWiLs)

768 It has to go to federal court because they are residents of different states, right?
------
Trying to remember back to law school.... P sues defendant in State court (Kentucky) in a lawsuit involving more than $75,000 and the plaintiff (Kentucky) and defendant (a Delaware corporation) are from different states.

Defendant has the right, under Diversity of Citizenship principles, to remove the State claim to the Federal Court in the district in which the State claim was filed.

So, WaPo will want to get this case out of the local Kentuck state court jurisdiction, presumably because the plaintiffs picked that court because it's most favorable to the defendant. In Kentucky, if the case stays in State Court, plaintiff needs to convince 5 of 6 jurors by preponderance of evidence. If this moves to Federal Court, plaintiff has to convince 9 of 12 jurors.

I think the above is correct, but another attorney is free to correct me.

775 613 I'm not disagreeing, booknlass.

I just think the claimed damages are extravagant. Enough so, that I'd dig in and fight if were the paper.

I liked seeing Gawker ruined by Hogan. But I still think the damages were over the top.

The civil verdict against OJ topped out under 35 million. He viciously murdered two people.

But I'm supposed to give Sandmann 250 million from a single defendant?"

My opinion is that the purpose of the total is to scare the shit out of Bezos - after Gawker, he can't afford to blow it off - and induce him to work out a relatively fast settlement, which will be undisclosed by either side.

The reason the lawyers would love a quick settlement from the biggest plaintiff is that this makes it much easier to run the table with all of the other plaintiffs - "Hey, the biggest most powerful defendants in this case already threw in the towel, decided they couldn't beat us, what chance do you think you got?"

This is true High Stakes Poker, and the game is to see who blinks first.

-------
This is a client call, not the lawyers', although let's be honest, the clients listen to the lawyers advice. Some lawyers may consciously or unconsciously influence the client to settle because the attorney wants the quick $ without doing all the work required to get to a trial that could be lost and thus net $0.

But here, the attorney is already fabulously wealthy and doesn't NEED the money early or safely, so is unlikely to be the source of any pressure to settle early. Further, this is a great case to keep in the headlines for name recognition to the attorney and law firm. (Raise your hand if you had heard of Lin Woo before Covington.).

From the client's perspective, settle or not, Mr. Sandman is going to be one rich dude. Going to Court and winning earns complete public vindication. A very appealing outcome to this young man. Attorney is no doubt taking the case on contingency, so no out of pocket costs to the Sandman family. Lastly, the attorney knows what he's doing here. THIS is what he does, every day, for the last X years, uber-sucessfully. Lin Woo is not afraid of doing the work to get to trial. In fact, the dude clearly loves it, and excels at it. He's got a lovable client, that was horribly wronged, by multiple deep-pocket defendants, over one of the most important and pressing issues of our time -- the horrible, biased, dishonest, angry bullying media.

Me thinks all the stars have aligned here, folks.

Funny thing about that, though. People seem to be winning and then they lose.

Napoleon was winning and then he wasn't. The Germans had two consecutive wars where they pretty much owned the game until they lost.

During the Civil War, the Union lurched from debacle to debacle and then...victory.

Then came Pickett's Charge.

Even there the Union came close to losing it. If Lee/ Longstreet had just a few hundred more to follow the tip of their spear... maybe even only a few dozen more...they would have carried the day.

191 'We just don't know" = it MIGHT be true.

Is was once explained to me that literally ANYTHING "might be true," and thus it's a meaningless statement. We MIGHT be visited by aliens today. The entire world as you know it MIGHT be a matrix-like computer generated virtual reality. And yes, Putin MIGHT have ordered Trump to fire Comey.

It's a total crap out. That's why there are legal standards that must be met before the US government invades an individuals civil rights. Generally, that's "probable cause," but certain government actions require a showing of more or less before the government can take action.

And THIS is the entire issue here with McCabe, the DOJ, the FBI and Trump. To open up a criminal investigation and to get warrants to collect evidence protected by Trumps' and other investigation targets' civil rights, the government has to show probable cause. Over on the intelligence investigation side of things, I understand the standards to be much less and much different. I believe the FBI can open a counter-intelligence "preliminary investigation" upon showing "information or an allegation," that doesn't even have to be "credible." But a "full investigation," which is the type that authorizes the use of electronic surveillance and search warrants, require "the reasonable indication of wrongdoing." A low bar, but if it fails not the "reasonableness" count, they're done.

This is complete bullshit. What this statement tells me is the coup is ongoing and that this is one of pretexts they were using to advance the conspiracy to take out Trump.

This smacks of when LBJ concocted the BS that North Vietnam attacked a US ship in the Gulf Of Tonkin thus kicking off the war in earnest.

10 years later and 50,000 dead soldiers we went home.

At the rate this horseshit is playing out we will be dealing with this 20 years from now at which point we will find out it was really Darth Vader and not Putin that ordered Ivanka to order Trump to fire Comey.

What we are all sure of, Andy, is that your wife took $600,000 from Clinton and lost a state race in a purple state turning blue.


And that money was as illegal as hell.


OK, "maybe" as illegal as hell.

314 This also has to be said. For anyone on the fence about whether the FBI and DOJ were up to no good, consider again that the same group of people at both the FBI and DOJ were working BOTH the Hillary Clinton and Trump investigations at the same time.

Think about that for a second. The FBI employees ~35,000 people. In the midst of a presidential election, BOTH presidential candidates are under investigation by the FBI. So they're telling us that in this scenario, the smart, reasonable, sensible and proper thing to do is to assign the exact same resources to both cases, which are completely different in character? The two most consequential cases in the history of FBI law enforcement that are both occurring at the same time?

Then you factor in the gross, laughably unreasonable and different approaches taken to Hillary and Trump, one secret and closely held, the other with multiple documented contacts with Hillary's personal attorney, incomprehensible decisions to not look at evidence, to not record conversations, to allow direct witnesses to attend as attorneys, to allow the target to destroy evidence, McCabe, lead investigator, accepts $675,000 (via wife's supposed "Campaign) from sources connected with Hillary, the TARGET of one of his investigations), the 6-day search and clearing of the Weiner emails, the complete exoneration of Hillary Clinton and the still yet unfinished anal-probe investigation of the first order on Trump...

And there are STILL players involved in this mess, including McCabe, and main stream reporters and other pundits, telling us there is nothing to see here and a media that is consciously refusing to report or investigate any of it....

It's nothing short of shocking to the core.

I don't think that it is fetishization to have an expectation that the entire top echelon of the premier national police force NOT be totally corrupt partisan hacks.
