Did Somebody Axe for an ONT?

So, I've been outside splitting wood, with an axe. In 90 degree weather with 90% humidity. Tonight's ONT may be a little loopy.

Y'all may remember when those trees came down in a storm in March. Well, better to chop them now than wait until there's a foot of snow on the ground. Besides, it's good exercise. Unless it's raining I do 12-15 logs a day.

Start the ONT Off Right, Too



'Murica.

This...is D-U-M



I hate to keep you guys from your riveting expose on imaginary Russian collusion, but those “flying delivery trucks” have a name. They're called “Airplanes”. The smartest name in news everyone.


Speaking of Smart

Death by Entitlement

Ace covered this the other day, but what the hell. Couple of mouthbreathing libs set out to bike around the world, trying to prove “Evil is a make-believe concept we've invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own.” They biked across Africa and Europe and into Asia. When they got to Tajikistan, 5 members of ISIS hit them with a car, then jumped out and stabbed them to death. I feel bad for them abstractly, being stabbed isn't a fun way to go, but really, how stupid can you be? Reminds me of the girl a couple of years back who wore a wedding dress and walked across Turkey to prove that Muslims were a peaceful people. They found her raped and desecrated body in a ditch. I call people like these “Kumbaya casualties”. They believe in their make-believe fantasy world of unicorns and rainbows over reality. You can (mostly) get away with that in the West. Other places? Yeah, not so much. Here's the last selfie they recovered from their cell phone.

Bird Droppings

Newport Beach Bans Electric Scooters After 3 Days

This seems like a good idea, particularly in areas where crunchy-granola hippie eco-warrior types abound. I get that there may be some problems, the most glaring one I see is people dumping them all over the place, but seems to me the city should work with the scooter company to resolve them. Nah. Just ban and demand more money in the form of permits and licenses.

I'll Take “Shit That Never Happened” for $500 ALex


You can click through and read the thread, but short version is he claims he wore a shirt with a faux sports logo for the “Caucasians” and walked around town and people flipped out. In Manhattan. Bullshit. You can walk around Manhattan with your dick hanging out and not get a second look (Well, *YOU* can. *I* get gasps of awe). Fake news.

Brexit

Only ignorance stands in way of a real Brexit now

Brexit is the prime example of how hard it is to make totalitarian government types give up their power.

18 For the Night Stalkers:


A Saga Continues:

In a Chinese restaurant in Maryland....

Fu Manchu sits at a table, a stack of
applications in front of him. "Dishwasher? See the manager. This
table is for dirt-dishers. Next."

A large man wearing a cowboy hat steps up. "Name?"

"Taggert."

"Any experience?"

"Well, I once worked for Headly Lamarr."

Fu Manchu gestures and two large Mongolians grab Taggert and drag him away. "Losers need not apply. Next."

A teenager steps up. "Name?"

"Brad."

"Any experience?"

"I'm a student intern at CNN and have been running The Situation Room since Mr. Blitzer went crazy."

"Relevant experience. Have you ever dished the dirt on someone?"

"Well, yeah. I mean, Caitlin who works
with me just gossips all the time and some of it is pretty funny so I
repeat it. I don't know if its true, but if its funny and bad, what's
the harm?"

"You're hired. You'll need a little
training in callous disregard for truth though. See the hostess for the
training materials."

*******************

"Here is the latest on foreign policy.
Mexico is negotiating on trade, China wants to talk about those tariffs -
they may be rethinking a trade war at this point, and Kim Jong-Un
called to thank you for the Estes rocket set, said he never
had one when he was a kid."

"I figured he would. I mean with the goofy
hair you could tell he was just a big kid who fell into the wrong crowd
- doing a little vandalism, some shoplifting, assassinations - he just
needed an outlet for all of that energy."

GorillaPundit looks at Trump and deadpans "Goofy hair...yes sir, that is it. Is there anything else?"

"No, just turn the tv on and put it to the Gorilla Channel. I love watching those apes smack each other around."

"Sir, there is no Gorilla Channel."

"Sure there is - the other night they had
this one on - Maddow was its name - and boy was she really bringing the
smackdown! That ape can swing bigly!"

"Oh right - MSNBC it is."

The TV is turned on and GorillaPundit leaves the office. Trump leans towards the TV and watches in anticipation.

"Governor Cuomo, could you repeat that?"

"America is not great and has never been
great! Slavery, Jim Crow, abuse of women, internments, war, football,
reality shows! America is a real sh*thole!"

"But you're a governor of an important state and want to be president! Why would you want to be president of a sh*thole?"

"Because as governor of New York I am a sh*theel and you need one to run a sh*thole!"

"Oh this is going to be good," Trump whispers. "Just need the next ape to come in and we'll see them fight!"

"Before we get deeper into Gov. Cuomo's
campaign theme of Cuomo 2020: See Clear to a Sh*theel for a Sh*thole we
have further allegations against President Trump...."

Trump pulls back. "Where's the fight? I
want to see some gorilla fight this gorilla. This blows. I wonder
what's on the Crazy Channel?"

He turns to CNN.

"Hi! I'm Caitlin and Mr. Blitzer says that
he's cheese and stands alone so #MeToo can't get him! Brad the dork
isn't here, he's trying to get a paying job so he can get that crappy
Lumina his grandma gave him fixed and he better! He
stills owes me for taking me to that Comic Con and insisting I dress up
as this anime whatever character Sailor Moon! I mean, that's like so
1990's and if that wasn't enough some creep dressed like a furry bear
tried to perv on me, kept saying "jub-jub-jub"!
Brad said it was a real Ewok, I still kicked its *ss!"

Trump snaps his fingers "Of course! That
little guy that I had strapped to the front of the RV back during the
campaign! He'll spice up the Gorilla Channel, get him to fight Cuomo
and maybe Maddow - maybe not until he's had a little training
- she's tough! Hey, one of you guys get Bigly the elephant, I gotta go
find this guy!"

i buttonholed a manager, told him *my* appliance was over the limit, and did it count. he smiled and said no, but i can give you a discount, so delivery was ~$30. guy got it off the truck, helped me get it off the shipping rack (it was already assembled) and wheel it in behind the gate.

it rocks... it doesn't take all the whiz-bang accessories the regular ones do, but they were several hundred $$$ out of our price range, w/o said extras.

I mentioned on Gab when this came up the other day: While it is good for a snicker, it is only until you imagine their last few minutes.

They did not get this way in a vacuum. They lived in a world where they could imagine a world that did not exist. Someone, somewhere did enough of a number on their threat analysis faculties to make them believe that this was a good idea.

And let's also not forget: this was not a bear or going over Niagara in a barrel- these people, naive though they were, were MURDERED by a group of evil thugs who any of us, I hope, would be happy to put a bullet into.

Posted by: Weirddave at August 17, 2018 09:35 PM (bQXMb)

Well, technically, a "log" is an entire tree trunk, or a long section thereof. What you are splitting are rounds or offcuts. And cutting them lengthwise with a chainsaw would be tedious, at best. You use an axe, and I use an axe, but the best tool for the job (absent a power wood splitter) is a splitting maul.

Heh. Reminds me. In the Reynolds Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin (which is a must-see). there is a farmer-built wood splitter which is basically just a big iron wagon wheel with a splitting wedge welded to the rim. It sits in a frame with an anvil to place the cut wood on, and the wheel is belt-driven off a tractor PTO, at about 30 RPM. User rests the end of a hunk of wood on the anvil, and topples it into the path of the oncoming blade. Ker-thunk! Probably not a job for those who value their fingers.

Tonight I went to the one closest to where I live, which also only opened recently, and that has not-so-great reviews on Google.

I heat about 80% of my living room in MI with wood. There's a brick hearth with a heatilator, so once it's been cranking for a while I can switch it on and it really is toasty. It's completely useless when the power's out, unfortunately, which is usually during an ice storm, which would be a handy time to have a heat source that doesn't rely on a squirrel cage blower, like the furnace or the heatilator.

Impressive machine, but i see a few problems. Number one, still requires a lot of hand-wrangling of the wood. Both to feed the rounds into the machine, and to pick up and stack the split wood. If a length of wood gets crosswise in the feed end, you will have to shut down, reach in, and straighten it.

Push the wood through the splitter, and into a receiving chamber, still all close together, and have the machine throw a wrap of twine around to make a bundle, all the same as a hay baler. Then you only have to handle bundles, instead of a dozen times as many split pieces.

But all the newshounds do is copy the police blotter (bowdlerizing it as they do so) and sometimes send a reporter to a fire, or to a press briefing.

When I bought this house the prior owners had some wood stacked in the back. It was blocked but unsplit. I finally got around to renting a wood splitter and did that on a very cold October Saturday. Even though I had the wood in the garage and the splitter just inside it was still colder than a (#@^%.

Nice wood, though. Not sure of the species of hardwood; just that it was nice and dry when I split it, even the knotted pieces would *pop* when the knot was passed. Still have a little bit of it.

Can you legally ask the officer to leave his gun in his vehicle because you're afraid of guns?

Jim Fleckenstein, Retired Police Officer, EMT and Prison Teacher - Answered 9h ago

- - - - -

I had an incident related to this. As a police officer in uniform, an on-duty deputy and I walked into a Walmart when we were approached by two employees. They explained their new zero tolerance gun policy did not allow anyone to come into the store with a gun. I said, "right," and we kept walking.

They stepped in our path and told us they were serious, nobody is allowed in with a firearm. I said, "We're going in; feel free to call the police," and we walked past them. Neither of us ever heard another word about it.

Working peace officers have a duty to carry their firearm in public.

240 Humidity. In my nape of the woods, at 5000 feet, humidity is noticeable when it is high, and this summer I've seen readings in the upper 80% (one morning 97%) range. and yet it's still preferable to 50% downhill in Ohio or Louisiana. Altitude is a factor, which makes sense. More air squishing wetly on you down the hill. I like the Rocky Mountain West.

Frankly, I don't feel sorry for the cyclists' families unless they did remonstrate with them about the stupidity of what they were doing, and only to a small extent even then.

I view their demise as the denouement of a retarded upbringing, for which I blame their families. "Evil is just a construct ..." Yow.

So interesting, hogmartin. The first cottage my parents had ( a very small one) at Higgins Lake had a large fireplace with a heatilator. There's must have been different because dad said it worked by convection, that is the fire place (which was central to the structure) would get going and air was drawn into vents low, would pass along the fire place and flue, and then discharge deeper into the room(s), thus moving the warm air around. As he described it there was no need for electricity, just a good draft in the fireplace.

Yep, mine is on the west wall, not the center. I'm sure there's some convection current and radiant heating, but it really doesn't shine unless the blower's on, when it draws cold air from the floor through masonry grillwork back around between the firebox and the outside of the chimney, then through some metal heat exchanger pipes in the flue and out between the bricks in the front, between the mantel and the firebox.

The flue itself is so well insulated with brick that the temperature rises MAYBE one degree in the master bedroom upstairs, even with the chimney running along one wall of it.

288 Funny thing about chopping firewood. My dad always had a list of chores a mile long: weeding the garden, picking berries from the strawberry and raspberry patches, check the irrigation pump, clean the back shed, pull weeds off the gravel driveway. The one chore I liked was chopping firewood. We had a huge cottonwood fall on our house during a summer t-storm (the house won - it crunched through the roof, but the bedrooms upstairs were fine). I spent that fall and winter reducing that tree to firewood for the stove in our living room, using a sledge hammer and two wedges.

Much of liberalism for the last 50 years has been about pretending. Affirmative action is pretending that candidate minority is better than candidate majority. Pretend racism is minorities can't be racist and crackers can't not be racist. Transgenderism is pretending boys are girls or vice versa. They're pretending there's evidence that Trump colluded with Russia and that Hillary did not commit felonies. So pretending there's no evil (or imagining there's no heaven or hell) fits right in.

That may have something to do with it. What I am describing is a place my parents sold in 1975 when I was 9. There was no upstairs, and it was on a cement slab (which took too long to get warm) and add in the casement single-pane steel framed windows and the fact that as a log cabin the outer wall *is* the inner wall, and that when the oil-burning "furnace" was replaced with gas it did not actually move heat around through any ductwork I was aware of (and though young I am certain I would have found it if it was there - gosh I like stuff like that). The heatilators actually worked because as a small kid I remember going there and standing in my coat and gloves, and dad getting a fire going, and very shortly it was warm enough to remove the coat and gloves.

Maybe. I think there's a common guitar amplifier tube that they almost completely stopped making after someone discovered that ex-Commie countries were completely awash in a perfect copy (no surprise) that was about 1/80th the price. When they run out, they'll probably start making them here again, but yeah, nowhere close to what you can get one for now.

It did not hurt because I was called out as a "racist."

It hurt because this person actually viewed me that way. It damaged my own opinion of this person for a long time, an irony that hurt me deeply. I still struggle with it, although we are still close. Thank God for that.

That simply meant all the lumber was dimensional cut and packaged. Your responsibility to lay it out and build according to the master plan.

417 QUICK AND DIRTY MOVIE REVIEW!!!!!!

Mile 22

Lots of actions and 'splosions and its a Moron Approved film going experience.

Did I mention the 'plosions

So short version is it's about an American black ops team trying to spirit an intelligence asset out of a country that I guess is supposed to be a lot like Indonesia but no Indonesia. During the move a Russian black postnatal team hacks their communications and then it becomes about Americans killing Russians.

There may or may not be a moment with John Malkovich reciting a certain line quoted at the top of this here Smart Military snd Pirate Enthusiast blog.

It's short, Mark Wahlberg plays a perfect asshole, there's lots of killing....good Moron date movie material. Beware, cuz the sound design seems to lean towards dialogue being "artistically muffled" by background noise. Things also happen quickly, so don't get distracted.

Saw this on the AVX screen at the Santikos Mayan Palace Theater. I've spoken before about Santikos. Great chain. The theater itself is very nice with this Mayan theme on the outside. Got there, got my alcoholic beverage...cool beans. The AVX screen in this theater is no time the massive one like I've seen at their other locations. Wall to wall, yes, but lacks the height. Still looked and sounded excellent.

If one examines the prematerial paradigm of whiskey, one is faced with a

choice: either accept whiskey objectively or conclude that the purpose of
whiskey is deconstruction of the self. But whiskey may be pre- and re-contextualised into an ontological deappropriation that includes culture as a totality. Debord promotes the use of inebriated objectivism to deconstruct whiskey and it's necessary and ancillary constituents, water and ice.

Gramps was a high school chemistry teacher, and bought what had been a subsistence farmstead, as a place to spend summers away from the heat and bustle of the big city. The house was a log structure from just before the civil war, and had a cluster of timberframed barns, one for each purpose or animal type. The unsplit wood was stored in one half of the wagon shed.

The wood burning kitchen stove was set up with piping for heating the gravity spring water, so we could bathe and wash dishes. With this and Gramps' penchant for baking bread, we needed wood to fire that stove all day long, every day, and it was summer.

The wood was white pine mostly, bark-on slabwood from the big mill down in the village. We'd whack it up in the wagonshed, and wheelbarrow it down to the house to keep a freezer-sized woodbox full all the time.

Kindling was needed each morning to get the day's fire going, and we kept that in a small stack next to the big box. We used a double bit Adirondack-pattern axe for everything, and to split the small kindling sticks, held the axe just under the head for close control.

They're all gone now but I remember a lot of the barn details, and the names of them all. Main barn, lower barn, sheep barn, horse barn, pig shed, wagon shed, grainery, and the newer car garage, built about 1914. All the barns dated to the early 1870s, and were of spruce and pine, the main timbers all squared up by hand with broadaxes. Tenons were fixed into the mortises with hardwood pegs. Nails, where used, were all square-cut, and came from the nail mill two villages downstream from our nearest village. Ours had a covered bridge spanning the river.

One thing I've learned about musicians in the rock and metal world, is that they are just regular people who love life (Seattle grunge lead vocalists what commit suicide notwithstanding). I have a good friend who has met folks like Dave Mustaine and Gary Holt (Exodus), and they are, if anything anti-diva. They bristle when fans gush. Just shake hands and say "glad to meet you."

My buddy did not like Mark Slaughter, however. I recall he called him a douchy little asshole.

Posted by: Pug Mahon at August 17, 2018 11:39 PM (EhZNT)

488 Surfperch, actually just the opposite.

The country club came first, with some large upscale homes built around it. Those residents named the area Lakewood, again, for the resort in NJ. This was during the 1930s and early 1940s.

Then a boulevard nearby, Highway 19, was named Lakewood Boulevard.

So when the time came to choose a name for this newly incorporated town in 1954, residents chose Lakewood. But other names were considered, I believe.

There are a wealth of quotable insights. Sowell cuts through the sociological BS with remarkable insight, and always with verifiable data.

The whole town has the reputation of being run by an HOA in City Hall. It's beautiful and VERY upscale, but for instance, there are (or were) restrictions on what colors you could paint your house, for years. They are or were called "Cerritos Colors."

Also, Cerritos had a city law that no business sign could contain any poor English grammar or spelling. So for YEARS, they were on the ass of the Toys 'R Us (now closed, obviously) in Cerritos, because of the backwards R!

The store opened in 1972 and by the 1990s, its manager had to threaten to close up and move here to Lakewood, to get the council members off their back. Good grief.

In a sense, the subject of the "Rabbit Hole" is interpolated into a Debordist imagery that includes diadactism as a reality. The dialectic paradigm of holes suggests that the goal of the observer is significant form, but only if truth is interchangeable with reality; otherwise, Bataille's model of Lacanist obscurity is one of "the semioticist paradigm of holes", and hence fundamentally unattainable.

Therefore, the defining characteristic, and eventually the genre, of

subdialectic ringemot theory depicted in Lewis Carrols Alice in Wonderland emerges again in Donnie Darko. Baudrillard's analysis of the dialectic paradigm of discourse implies that man is capable of social comment.

BackwardsBoy, as I recall it, Fee Waybill had this habit of ending up naked by the end of a lot of shows.

But I could be wrong.


For this show, he came out as Quay Lewd, the World's Tallest Rock Star. 18" platform boots and a skin-tight silver lame outfit with what appeared to be a gigantic cucumber in the pants part. Played White Punks On Dope and then "died" when a 20 ft tall fake guitar amp fell on him. He then became an angel surrounded by nubile young ladies who were wearing nothing but pantyhose and two strategically placed strips of electrical tape.

Waybill did one song as a doctor. They wheeled out a gurney while he cranked up a real chain saw and chased some guy a couple of tables over out the front door with it. He delivered a little baby guitar appropriately covered with goo.

A good time was had by all.

I would not go so far as to call Kansas a "Christian Band" (even though I may have just said so, shut up, been drinking!) but they were far removed from what I was generally drawn to as a teenager. They had a far more positive and, well, happy element to their sound But I loved their music, and Steve Walsh is a helluva front man.


By the time Kansas hit the scene, I was into Yes and ELP. I always thought of them as America's Prog Rock Band.

Didn't find out until a couple of years ago that they were/are a Christian band. I did notice the subject matter of their songs and the absence of secksual suggestivenessism, but I never gave it any thought since most prog rock is like that.
Great band with a new album out, first one in like 15 years.

564 I also have relatives on my (estranged) dad's side who, from 1966 until the 1990s, lived off of McKinley Street in the western segment of Riverside, California.

They got a swimming pool in the late 1970s, so my family was in the habit, in the summertime, of visiting them at least once a month, to go swimming.

The trip there was incredible for me as a young kid. That area of Riverside was barely developed. There were even some old fashioned farms with horses, and hay bales.

Only a few years ago, I finally was able to swing by there again. It's completely built up. Not even a tree in sight. Tons of strip malls, more homes/apartments, and commercial/business buildings. Looks NOTHING like it did in the early 1980s.

There was also a segment north of CA-91 of McKinley, that was nothing but a dirt road. Today it's as big, wide and developed as the southern McKinley segment I just described. Again, good grief.

LA's sprawl has been out of control for a long time now.

I used to play a lot of poker, and at the level I played most of the other guys at the table owned businesses. Since I was interested in starting a business at the time I would ask them specifics. I asked one guy what his top line revenue was and he returned with "You want to know how much I take in or how much I tell the IRS?"

Strange.

I live in SoCal, which is the epicenter of WCS. Within a 100 mile radius are most of the best WCS dancers in the world, and there is a whole subculture of WCS dancers here. The demo skews young, which is one of the things I like about it. Nice, young attractive dancers to watch.

Sorry that you got stuck in a scene from Cocoon. That would be a drag.

I can't imagine much about Johnny Carson because I was too young when he was on air. I do remember he was a smile comic, not a laugh comic. My parents raised on the Pythons thought he was bland.

Better analogy might be to Leno or to any of the 1990-ish SNL crew. They were funnier and edgier than Carson. They wouldn't have dropped this gay-baiting, either.

I have also filed a brutal complaint with the Inspector General of the
DOJ about the U.S. Attorney's failures to protect 1st and 2nd amendment
rights with 18 U.S. Code 241. Here is the last paragraph of the
complaint:

In any case, the more than 140 years of failure of U.S. Attorneys to
properly enforce 18 U.S. Code 241 has not occurred by accident,
carelessness, or by mistake. Those failures did not occur because of
sloppy work; the U.S. Attorneys did not mean to prosecute these cases
only to fumble them away. Those failures are the results of deliberate
and intentional choices on the part of U.S. Attorneys who understood
exactly what they were doing. That is clearly unacceptable,
unprofessional, behavior which is destructive to the Nation.

But Mastercard (and its CEO and president, Ajaypal Singh Banga) can strong-arm Patreon into deplatforming a relatively inoffensive right-of-center commentator like Robert Spencer.

I used to scoff at you guys who predicted an actual shooting civil war; mainly because I thought it was wish-casting. As horrible as that would be, it would finally stop the inexorable ratcheting leftward. Which seemed just too good to be true to me -- yeah it will cost about 10 million dead, but hell, they'll mostly be on the other side.

Now I'm not so sure. This Mastercard thing has me re-thinking this. I need to buy some ammo, I think. I don't see any other way out of this. They deplatform and ban every conservative voice, and it's go time.

"...Scardina may have targeted Phillips several times after he refused her original request. The lawsuit said he received several anonymous requests to make cakes depicting Satan and Satanic symbols and that he believed she made the requests."

And then:

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/ colorado-baker-asked-to-make-birthday-cake-for-satan

"Satanists ask Christian baker to make ‘birthday cake’ for Lucifer

Alliance Defending Freedom, Gay Wedding Cake, Jack Phillips, Lucifer, Masterpiece Cake Shop, Satan

The Christian baker in Colorado who was sued for declining to make a cake for a same-sex couple’s wedding reception received a strange request last month: design and bake a cake celebrating Satan’s birthday.

“I would like to get a quote on a birthday cake, for a special event,” the email request to baker Jack Phillips, sent September 30 and exclusively obtained by The Daily Signal, reads. It continues:

It is a cake that is religious in theme, and since religion is a protected class, I am hoping that you will gladly bake this cake. As you see, the birthday cake in question is to celebrate the birthday of Lucifer, or as they (sic) are also known Satan who was born as Satan when he was cast from heaven by God."

Etc. etc.

All of these requests were apparently made by the same person.

215 . . . and the destruction of Smyrna is one of the most hellish episodes of the 20th Century.

That's Robert Spencer's ancestry, there.

Basically the Greeks had made a play to reconquer Asia Minor and failed, hard - because the Turks had Mustafa Kemal (an atheist btw) and the Greeks didn't. After the great spanking of the Greeks, the Turks and Greeks made a deal to "exchange populations". The Spencer clan (they weren't Spencers then obviously) were Anatolian Greeks.

When the Spencers reached the port one of Robert's uncles turned back to retrieve some keepsake from his home. The Turks escorted uncle home and immediately shot him dead.

Hard to blame Islam for this one, given Ataturk's own ideals. Easy to blame the Turks.

For myself I spent a long time trying to decide whether it was stupid or I loved it. I have concluded that it is quite stupid and I love it.

You have cowboys, ranchers, Indians, rancher politicians, Indian politicians, water rights, and land rights. All of the characters are awful. You have old Kevin Costner. His character is also awful, but it's Kevin Costner with horses and cattle and such.

Weird how Hale-Bopp made no impression on me. I had a clear view of the sky from where I lived in 1997, but have no memory of ever being able to see Hale-Bopp, except for a half-memory of once barely being able to see it and thinking, "Well, that certainly was lame."

And yet there is this from wikipedia, which confirms your impression:

"Its lengthy period of visibility and extensive coverage in the media meant that Hale-Bopp was probably the most-observed comet in history, making a far greater impact on the general public than the return of Halley's Comet in 1986, and certainly seen by a greater number of people than witnessed any of Halley's previous appearances. For instance, 69% of Americans had seen Hale–Bopp by April 9, 1997."

Wha????

Man, I have no idea how I missed out on it.

Posted by: zombie at August 17, 2018 07:57 PM (c+2jX)

249 Before its close approach, Kohoutek was promoted by the media as the "comet of the century". However, Kohoutek's display was considered a let-down,[3] possibly due to partial disintegration when the comet closely approached the Sun prior to its Earth flyby. You may now continue.

One possibility: it is frequently foggy/cloudy here in the Bay Area. I wouldn't be surprised if the night-sky was covered in cloud-cover during the brightest part of Hale-Bopp's approach.

That's the thing - they get the rush of being with someone who is an alpha among their peers, but who will probably bend to their will most of the time. The QB of the football team may be the big man on campus but he's still a child, especially if the female teacher can tap into some mommy issues.

Meanwhile, if a male teacher wants a pliant younger woman with daddy issues, well, there's millions of legal age to choose from.

333 One reason the teacher>student relationships are female>male is because male teachers have already been forced out of teaching due to (probably mostly false) claims of statutory rape. Men are not welcome in most schools, which is a big part of what is wrong with our educational system.


I guess it depends on where you live. In Alabama they love men teachers, though they often end up being administrators in short order. My poor dead friend had to fight to stay a 3rd grade teacher as the Superintendent kept trying to make him a principal.

336 OK, the two fly fishing scenes in Yellowstone.

In the Kevin Costner scene we see him casting. There are no long shots, it's not a river runs through it, but he picks up line and false casts and shoots about six feet of it and then starts his retrieve. There's nothing embarrassing about it.

Also, when the other old cowboy says he just lost his last fly Costner says he lost his 20 minutes ago. That works, he's just standing in a stream casting.

Now, the other is the lesbian couple from San Francisco. Only one fishes. She picks up line and splashes it down on the water. Maybe fifteen feet. Then there's no drift or anything, she just picks up the line and splashes it down. Again and again and again.

I can't tell if the producers know what fly fishing is and this is commentary, or if like most of the advertising world it's just hold this fly rod and try to look cool.

On the other hand, one night when I was a very young kid -- I think about 9 years old -- I went camping for one of the few times in my whole life with a friend and her family, and as we were laying in our sleeping bags out in the total wilderness with zero light-pollution and a zillion stars, there was a very clearly visible fabulous comet in the sky. Since I had never seen the real night sky like that before, I just assumed that comets must be totally commonplace to see, once you get away from the city lights.

But ever since that night, I have never seen another comet, despite being out in the woods away from city lights many many times.

Weird.

Even weirder, curios about all this, I tried to research what comet it might have been that I saw that night, but could find no references to any kind of comet being visible in (exact year redacted). I can't have been the discoverer of it, could I?

Yes, the first cutting this year was 23%, second 22%, third cutting will be late September. Good crop alfalfa. My other crop is oats. Feed it to sheep and chickens. Grow a small crop strictly for feeding critters. Buy some corn fron neighbor for the chickens. Inherited 52+ acres, live in the house I grew up in. As oldest child parents gave me the choice as to what I would inherit, choose the house and the original farmstead. Got a wood lot of about 6 acres and a small stream, and a spring. Sitting pretty.

Siblings sold off the 308 they inherited. Oh well.

Posted by: Bertram Cabot, Jr. "

My wife and I shared a funny story about going to look for that. Like you, we had waited for it for all our lives and then it was a total disappointment. So we decided to drive way out in the country, away from any lights, to get as good a view as we could. Did that, turned down a old dirt farm road, finally could see it decently when we got out of the car - and we stood there, trying to convince each other we had done good, while we both tried to ignore the fact that there was a big clump of dark bushes about 20 feet away from us that sounded like Darth Vader was standing in the middle of it. We figured it had to be a cow, but neither of us wanted to admit to the other that it was kind of freaking us out. So we didn't say anything to each other about it, but after about 30 seconds of looking at the sky, we both agreed "well that's about all of Haley's Comet I ever wanted to see, let's go home!" And we got the heck out of dodge.

Same, but in our case we found not guilty.

I believe he could have done it, and he was a slimy little shit, but the county's case was terrible and it's not on him to prove he didn't do it. It's on the prosecutor, and they failed utterly. So I simultaneously believe that we let someone who was likely guilty walk, and that we did exactly the right thing by doing so.

503 Comets:

I looked for Comet Kohoutek when I was a teenager but never saw it. I didn't really know what I was doing. I took the hype at face value and expected it to be obvious in the sky. Today, I could probably find it with binoculars and a star chart.

With Comet Halley, I knew going in that it would be one of the worst apparitions in recorded history, following 1910 which was one of the best. Still, it was my only chance to see the most famous comet in history, so I made the best of it. I followed that little sucker around the sky for about six months using a small telescope, binoculars mounted on a tripod, and star charts. It was visible to the naked eye for part of that time.

Hale-Bopp was a lovely and bright comet that was visible to the naked eye for several months, among the longest on record. It was similar in that respect to the Great Comet of 1811, which was mentioned in "War and Peace", although I haven't read that book. Hale-Bopp showed some detail in a telescope near its peak.

But the hands-down winner in my lifetime was Comet Hyakutake, which zoomed past Earth a year before Hale-Bopp and stole the show. It was a smaller comet but passed much closer to Earth. For a few nights in March 1996 it was high overhead and absolutely dominated the sky. Unlike Hale-Bopp, it appeared with little advance notice and media attention. I feel sorry for anyone who missed it, which was most people, because as I said, it didn't get as much media hype.

529 My only jury duty was a man who was let out of prison and arrested later that same day.
A "woman" in a stolen car sideswiped a stopped car and cop had to dive over the hood to save his butt.
The long haired excon was found walking down a country highway with the keys to a "car that wasn't his"(whose car was it? That's not something the jury needs to know) and the car was parked in the backyard of a vacant home just down the road from the accident.
Defense?
Cop said it was a woman, but my client is a man.
Cop said the driver had long hair, my client is shaved bald...and ignore the mugshot with the mullet halfway down his back.
My client found the car keys and was just returning them.
My client wasn't in the car and if he was, he wasn't driving.
Finding?

I saw it on my first real camping trip in Minnesota, at least 50 miles away from any source of light pollution. Stunning. It looked like it was only a few miles away.

Posted by: Calm Mentor at August 17, 2018 09:10 PM (I16G8)

533 I observed Hyakutake from a park about an hour away from where I live in SE PA and saw a tail 30 degrees long. Observers in *really* dark sites in places like New Mexico reported a tail in excess of 90 degrees and I absolutely believe it. That was a comet like you read about in history books.

The thing about Hyakutake was that it was discovered only two months before closest approach, unlike Hale-Bopp which was discovered at least two years out. It passed about 10 million miles above the North Pole. That means it was heading almost directly towards us when it was first spotted. Which means that a comet could be on a collision course with Earth and we could get as little as two months' warning.

And that is utter bullshit. It should not cost anyone out of pocket to serve on a jury. Foregone earnings is one thing, but to have to pay for parking, or pay for transit to go sit on a jury is bullshit. The Sherriff should send a van around to pick up jurors, and give them a ride home at the end of the court day.

Posted by: boulder t'hobo at August 17, 2018 09:34 PM (N1ZXu)

The simplest way to handle it would be to offer validated parking for jurors. Since most unattended lots now let one pay by credit card, you could just collect the credit card receipt, hand it in to the court clerk, who could then process an refund to your credit card, and debit the county's account by the same amount. Or just buy the receipt from you out of petty cash.

True Con Corporate Class Silent on Censorship of PragerU and the MasterCard-Ordered Banning of Robert Spencer from Patreon

We just discovered that we are being heavily censored and shadow banned on @facebook. At least two of our video posts were removed last night for "hate speech" and our last 10 posts have reached 0 of our 3 million followers. More info and screenshots coming soon. STAY TUNED!

-- @PragerU

PragerU has updated that while previously-censored videos are still censored (FaceBook censors a lot of PragerU videos -- including ones simply condemning censorship), new videos are no longer being automatically banned.

For now.

For those amused at Milo and Alex Jones, how do you feel about PragerU being blacklisted?

Still funny?

You consider yourself above these people. Your enemies don't. In fact, you're more dangerous because your "hate" is respectable.

-- @MelissaTweets

Tim Pool did a video, linked here and embedded below, discussing the matter of MasterCard forcing Patreon to ban Robert Spencer's account. Patreon is not at fault here -- they wrote to Spencer in an apologetic tone letting him know that, by contract, they had to obey MasterCard (who processes the payments or something), and MasterCard had ordered them to terminate Spencer's account.

Tim Pool wonders who pressured MasterCard to do this -- was a leftist "anti-Islamophobia" group, or perhaps an Islamic nation in which MasterCard does business?

Is MasterCard now censoring American citizens in order to curry favor with foreign potentates? If so, don't corporate-but-supposedly-super-patriotic fake conservatives have a duty to find out what MasterCard did this, on whose orders? And maybe even consider -- gasp! -- a regulation that financial companies doing business in America can't deny American citizens services just because a foreigner demands it?

But they won't, because most of the Republican Party and FakeNews Conservative Media is bought off by mega-corporations and act as their mob lawyers and PR agents at every turn.

Are any of our alleged tribunes going to exercise their investigatory powers to ask MasterCard, under oath, why they tortiously interfered with a business relationship between Robert Spencer and Patreon?

Or is MasterCard's cash just too long, fat, and green?

Meanwhile, while the idiot FakeNews Conservatives continue to insist that "Private Business social media companies can do anything they want," that's not true -- at least, they can't do anything they want without serious legal jeopardy.

As Lee Smith again reminds us, social media companies only have a special exemption to the normal laws about liability for libel, conspiracy, facilitating the sale of contraband, etc., that most publications are subject to only because it is assumed that they are not acting as editorial overseeers of the content, picking and choosing what gets put into print.

If a newspaper publishes a defamatory letter to the editor, that newspaper is liable for that defamation. The newspaper picks and chooses what to print, after all; it is responsible for trumpeting that libel out to thousands.

But if libel is published on a social media, the social media company is not legally responsible for it by a special exception of the law.

But that law requires that the social media company act as a neutral platform and not act as newspaper would, exercising editorial judgment about what news is fit to print.

Newcomers like Facebook and Google had a huge advantage over the prestige press. Not only did they not have to pay their content providers, they were also exempt from press liabilities and responsibilities. Tech-optimists like Ron Wyden, then-congressman from Oregon and now senator, wrote it into the law.

According to section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, "No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider."

The point of the Wyden amendment was to protect providers from being sued every time someone objected to a post. Otherwise, they feared, America's great internet adventure would be strangled in its crib.

But when a social media company does begin picking and choosing what it permits to be published on its platform, it does in fact become a publisher like any other, legally responsible for what appears on it.

And yet our bought-off Republican representatives -- some doubt on that last part -- don't make an issue of this, by and large. There are noble exceptions -- Rep. Matt Gaetz bangs this drum, and Senator Cruz questioned tech executives closely on whether they were in fact now "publishers" given that they're exercising a publishers' right to select what's fit for their brand -- but most of them just take that sweet, sweet corporate cash and let tech giants take our rights away, one shadowban at a time.

I guess when the tech oligarchs take away our right to free speech completely, the Corporate Cons can pat themselves on the back while saying, "Well, at least it wasn't the government that stripped conservatives of the right to speak freely. At least we know that this repudiation of Americans' most fundamental right was done 'the right way' -- by private companies, acting with, admittedly, the blessing of the federal government which is ignoring its own rules in order to permit these megacorporations to do all this."

I thought the TruCons believed in the Rule of Law -- they claim as much every single day as they preen their dirty wings.

And yet the law says that a social media company is only immune from responsibility for a third-party's postings if it is a neutral platform and not a publisher making editorial judgments about what speakers are allowed to enter and what speakers aren't.

They seem to be ignoring that part of the law for the benefit of their Corporate Very Good Friends, as usual. The ones, of course, who subsidize them and gift them with nice travel opportunities.

Am I supposed to be heartened that my censors will be corporate rather than governmental?

As was said during the arguments over the Constitution and the need to limit legislators' power, "We didn't trade one tyrant a thousand miles away for 435 tyrants closer to home." (Or something like that.)

And I don't really see how I'm benefiting by exchanging one possible censor -- the government -- for ten or fifteen trillion-dollar tech and financial services giants.


More on this point from Instapundit.


Snark At the "Private Businesses Can Do Anything" Corporate PR Agents:



They keep saying "Don't like it? Then build your own."

And then people do that.

And then these megacorporations collude and conspire to shut down those as well.

Robert Spencer Used to Blog at HotAir: Commenters reminded me of this. You'd think Hot Air would at least publicize this on behalf of an alumnus.

Whatever. We're on our own.

29 "The internet was born through universities, hobbyists and neglected labs. It was experimentally libertarian. Two generations later it's controlled by a handful of monopolistic tech firms whose leaders and employees are dogmatically leftist. Most users haven't cared much as the local BBS and then the forum gave way to centralized platforms like Facebook. But centralization represented a cultural and political shift. Freedom ceased to be part of the internet's innate technological DNA and instead became an eccentricity that Big Tech temporarily tolerated because it made the tech companies money.

And relying on the tolerance of the adherents of a political movement that had never been noted for its willingness to tolerate the dissenting speech of its political opponents was never going to end well.

The internet was free when control over its medium was diversified. Its message ceased to be free as its core platforms became centralized. Its old model had been innately libertarian. Its new model was just as innately socialist, imitating its old hobbyist culture with free services, but offering those free services in exchange for reselling control and surveillance over the people who were making use of them.

Google, Facebook and other big tech firms tolerated freedom on the internet for a variety of reasons, some cultural, some political and some economic. The old generation of Boomer hobbyists had long since made way for Generation X liberals and millennial lefties, but the culture was still there. Even tech industry lefties have a more libertarian outlook than their peers in other industries. And none of the firms wanted the responsibility of actually censoring their content. Not only is it an expensive and difficult process, but it would make them responsible for what actually appeared on their services"

So, TransNational corporations are bowing to the regulation of China and the EU... did you all note all the 'updates' to Privacy and user statements a couple months ago? Yup, EU.


And our own Government is NOT protecting us from those same encroachments upon Free Speech, because our 'betters' actually AGREE with being able to stifle debate from us Nazi Deplorables.

I warned everybody how stupid arguments were simply being accepted to be "reasonable" and "non-hating". What you didn't know when you put on the collars is HOW much they were going to be TUGGED.

Scalia said Obergefell opinion read like a post-modern essay.

Just as with "You can keep your doctor, rates will go down $2500", it looks like a well orchestrated plan. The secret source I have that copied minutes of top secret Bilderberg meetings says this was in their "NWO Blueprint for conquering America" the whole time.

"Sources say ..." I don't have such a source, but if I owned a newspaper I guess I could claim it ... like the whole Trump/Russia crap was fabricated still running after 2 years, except mine would likely be true.

146 Just a related reminder --

By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Monday, June 4, 2018

President Trump will appeal a federal judge's ruling that his Twitter account is a public forum that he cannot block users from accessing, the Justice Department said in a court filing late Monday.

The move had been expected after the administration had said last month it disagreed with the ruling by Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald, who ordered Mr. Trump and his social media guru, Daniel Scavino, to stop blocking people from @realDonaldTrump.


The blocked twitterers have been unblocked for now, while Trump appeals.

TFG while preezy claimed that no followers had been blocked as policy, but at least one person reported getting the blocked message from Twitter.

212 We end up with government control of an area when one group, whether for financial profit or power, comes up with a way to completely take over an important segment of society and use it to their own benefit, and to the detriment of everyone else.

No one here wants a government takeover of the net, and the heavy regulation that would entail - but that position only works where all parties will tacitly abide by certain rules and codes of conduct. Our enemies may not leave us a choice in this area, and it appears that we are about to be forced into advocating a governmental takeover for our own protection.'

I don't support government regulation. I think we should just have anti-silencing laws that say that a customer cannot make their patronage contingent upon who does or does not get de-platformed. Thus Master Card could choose to withdraw their support for Patreon but they could not threaten it with withdrawal--unless they made some other case for their dissatisfaction.

As long as platforms are going to make the case that they are *public* platforms, there should be consequences to conspiring to oust people off them--without a clear violation of terms.

However, I expect that more and more quantum super-positions of knowitall judge theories will occur, and that it will not soon be decided that FaceBook is a publisher or a forum.

Because that's how fucked up our decision mechanism is with a cacophony of judges ruling the world by their two-cents.

Unless there is some billionaire out there who wants to give up his fortune, there's no way it can work financially, especially when outlets like Mastercard and Visa start pulling the plug and blocking their products from being used. The system is too interlocked, and our enemies have taken control of too many key pressure points.

He was very polite and very engaging. He wasn't a smart ass and didn't act like an elitist. Now some of the others I encountered during those few years did.

Ben Shapiro was at one selling books at a booth not even a speaker, but everybody said he was the smartest person in the world and the next leader of conservatism.

I learned that my future in media and radio was a waste of time as it became obvious after 3 years that you had to have major oarge money Ivy League backers or be a Progressive to make it out of High School media/radio.

re: Correia and the con dis-invite.

Con invites him and a guest. Larry's son is stoked to go to a con. Larry buys plane tickets on promise con will reimburse. Soviet Justice Wankers start screeching about how Larry makes them feel unsafe. So con pulls invite and only then tells Larry he can't come. Larry goes a bit ballistic. His fans go nuclear and so does other authors like David Weber. And to compound their stupidity, the con dragged its feet for a long time before finally covering the cost of the non-refundable plane tickets.

The final act of this insipid screech fest came out when those who agitated for Correia's removal said they still would not attend.

Had not been on Larry Correia's blog for a while, finally went to get caught up. He was disinvited from a gaming con because of his views? Do I have that right? Can someone fill me in on what happened?

Stuff like that creates a chilling effect on fans and other panelists/vendors going, and diminished turnout and participation. The SJW parasite kills the con host. Go woke, go broke. Origins done screwed up.

He got "uninvited" after an SJW raised a stink over a 5-year old fisking of her fiance's asinine "marginalized people in SF" article. They didn't even try to mediate it, just dumped him offhand.

This was about 2 weeks after John Ringo was uninvited to ConCarolinas over a coordinated SJW freakout.

And no, I am not trying to kiss up, 'rons and 'ettes. When someone gives a consistently superior effort, day in and day out, and having to deal with computer technical issues and the azzwipes that come around from time to time, they should get a kudo. An honest kudo or a few.

So kudos, Ace.

And if any of you disagree, go to HuffPost and hang around there for 20 minutes. You'll be back.

379 Able-bodied adults in Michigan without dependents will be required to meet federal work requirements that have been waived for more than a decade, according to a news release for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.


Not if Hawaiian Judge has anything to say about it (and he does). Allowing a waiver to federal law to expire is arbitrary and capricious and can't be done unless it is justified to the judges liking (and he doesn't like it). And further, it is cruel to expect able bodied adults who have grown accustomed to receiving federal benefits to suddenly be expected to work, possibly even wake before 9am. Also, many federal beneficiaries work undocumented jobs and would be unduly harmed if their benefits were revoked, as they would no longer be able to maintain the lifestyle to which they are accustomed.

384 >>his acute, one-way censorship machine leads me to think that this isn't just coincident behavior. I mean obviously it's not that. They are coordinating, just not via a public policy paper. But I'm 99.9% certain that there's off the record meetings among the techs to subvert Trump, and online SJWing is the selected mode of action. It's looking, walking, and talking like RICO action among the Silicon Valley players.


I agree that this is about EU and China as much as it is about US politics. Tech getting pressured by EU to shutdown people they don't like. They have hate speech laws and cannot tolerate someone like Spencer.

This old post from Wretchard explains what I would guess is going on. It was written about NSA after Snowden leaks, but the whole identifying communication groups/cutting off top node - big tech could do this just as easily with all the meta data they have on users.

389 What we need is our own platform, underground if need be. Our own dark net, piggy-backed on their internet."

I've thought about that, but it's too expensive to get off the ground. Unless there is some billionaire out there who wants to give up his fortune, there's no way it can work financially, especially when outlets like Mastercard and Visa start pulling the plug and blocking their products from being used. The system is too interlocked, and our enemies have taken control of too many key pressure points.

Our only hope is to get our people into government, and use government to force those pressure points back open. I don't like that option, but I see no other realistic way of turning this around.

Horses do not have the same capacity for learning that dogs do.
Horses mature at a much slower rate . Yes they will probably outlive a dog. But I highly doubt any mini would be of any use before the age of 7.

Not if Hawaiian Judge has anything to say about
it (and he does). Allowing a waiver to federal law to expire is
arbitrary and capricious and can't be done unless it is justified to the
judges liking (and he doesn't like it). And further, it is cruel to
expect able bodied adults who have grown accustomed to receiving federal
benefits to suddenly be expected to work, possibly even wake before
9am. Also, many federal beneficiaries work undocumented jobs and would
be unduly harmed if their benefits were revoked, as they would no longer
be able to maintain the lifestyle to which they are accustomed.

When I read the nonsense from the actual Random Hawaiian Judges, I think of this YouTube video where a guy (in Texas I believe) captures a large wild boar in a cage, and proceeds to show the viewers how to castrate it.
He doesn't chop off the sack, he splits it with a very sharp folding knife (which he is proud of) and then yanks the testes by hand. The boar is let loose and runs around like, well, like a Random Hawaiian Judge.
By now, it is automatically linked in my mind.

465 I have also filed a brutal complaint with the Inspector General of the DOJ about the U.S. Attorney's failures to protect 1st and 2nd amendment rights with 18 U.S. Code 241. Here is the last paragraph of the complaint:


In any case, the more than 140 years of failure of U.S. Attorneys to
properly enforce 18 U.S. Code 241 has not occurred by accident,
carelessness, or by mistake. Those failures did not occur because of
sloppy work; the U.S. Attorneys did not mean to prosecute these cases
only to fumble them away. Those failures are the results of deliberate
and intentional choices on the part of U.S. Attorneys who understood
exactly what they were doing. That is clearly unacceptable,
unprofessional, behavior which is destructive to the Nation.

A letter is circulating among Google's staff that calls for the creation of an "ethics review structure," which would make ethical assessments of the company's projects.

Andrew Cuomo: When I Said "America Was Never Great," See, I Meant to Say "America Has Always Been Great"

Really?

Seems like you intended to say "We're not going to make America great again, America was never that great," because that's a coherent statement where all the parts of it reinforce the same meaning.

Also seems like if you had meant to say "America has always been great," but had a "speak-o" and said "America was never that great," the audible gasps of shock from even your leftwing supporters would have alerted to you that you had misspoken.

Yeah, the loud gasps of shock should have alerted you. (Video link.)

Also, you went on to say "We have not reached greatness, we will reach greatness" when your various Democrat client-groups get more free stuff from Daddy Sugar government.

But no. It turns out it was Opposite Day and he was saying the exact opposite of what he meant to say.

A tweet from Jon Campbell:

Andrew Cuomo on a conference call just now:

"The expression I used the other day was inartful, so I want to be very clear: Of course America is great and of course America has always been great."

Andrew Cuomo provided this update: "That whole 'America was never great' thing? What a boner! Boy is my face red -- red white and blue, I mean!"

An aside here: Maybe my hearing is off by I didn't note gasps of shock so much as hooting of "You go, Girl!" Normally, when normal people are involved, something as patently offensive as "this country we all live in sucks" would draw boos and hisses. But that's not what happened. The collective response was one of disbelief that he said what they all agreed was true but were too afraid (and politically savvy) to say. They cheered his response with some overt disbelief, but they didn't disagree, walk-out, or condemn. He just amplified what they thought in a very clumsy way and rallied.

There is really not less of a non-apology apology than saying "gosh darn it, i slipped in the inartful again."

Inartful does not say that you said the exact other thing from the thing that you meant. It says that you didn't put enough spin on it; you meant it to be a dogwhistle that only your tribe would correctly interpret, but instead you came right out and said it.

Also, Freud would like some credit here.

"My heart is as black as yours." He was addressing a group of black voters in 1969.

"Frank O'Connor grows on you, like a cancer." Endorsing a fellow Democrat back in 1965.

Even this idiot's idiot father knew better than to make these kind of idiot mistakes.

I remember seeing Mario on CSPAN doing a Q and A at the Harvard Press Club back in '91 or '92, when he was contemplating running for President against Bush the Elder. As I recall, some soyboi youngster journalist started asking a question about GHWB "Given that we can see that Bush wants to destroy the United States...."

Mario interrupts. "That's incorrect. Bush doesn't want to destroy the country. He's an honorable man doing what he thinks is right. It's just that he's wrong."

It struck me because that's pretty much the only time that cocksucker Mario was charitable to the political opposition. Especially since I'm sure he actually agreed with the soyboi. But he was smart enough to lie in public while he was still contemplating running for Pres.

195 Not sure what the controversy is here. Is has been a standard leftist truism -- in fact the basis for their entire philosophy -- that America is the antithesis of "great," and is instead the source of all evil in history and in the modern world. In their opinion, the only thing that would finally turn America "great" would be if it fully adopted all SJW demands and went full commie.

Even Michelle Obama basically said that America has never been great when she said that she was never proud of America (until the moment it elected it husband president).

Per reporter Amy Chosik, who covered the Hillary campaign, this bit was used with donors and it worked for her. She was used to getting laughs (IIRC, there are laughs in the video of her saying it).

294 Of course this is the classic problem -- the difference between speaking to a general audience versus speaking to a specific interest-group audience. The message a politician says to one is always totally different than the message he gives to the other.

In the old days, politicians would get away with this constantly, because not everything they said was recorded or broadcast, so he could say totally contradictory things at different times to different groups, and no one would ever know.

But in the modern world -- not possible. Everything you say will eventually make it online for the whole world to see. So you have to craft every speech -- even a speech to a specialized pressure group -- as if it was being given to the whole world. Because the whole world will eventually hear it.

I'm reminded of the all-time classic instance of this:

When Yasser Arafat was given the Nobel Peace Prize, he said in stilted English at the UN, "I will do my best to keep peace with the Israelis." Then just a few hours later, he went back home and gave a speech in Ramallah, where he said (in Arabic), "Kill the Jews! I tricked the stupid infidels into a ceasefire, just as they were winning! Hahaha! Now we will regroup and drive the Jews into the sea and destroy Israel forever! Allah Ackbar!"

In a rar case of someone committing actual journalism, there was an MSM report about what he said in his second speech, never imagining that the infidels would ever hear it.

332 262 Had a crazy girl come to the VFW today and ask if she could join. We asked her if she had been in a combat zone and she said no, she deserted when Bush sent everyone over for Desert Storm because she had seen too much combat in her previous life's.

She then asked if she could join based on the combat she had seen in her previous life's.


Not making this up.

The dailycaller article doesn't mention it, but what makes Cuomo's
denial even more implausible is that Trump tweeted that Cuomo had a
meltdown.



Cuomo responded to Trump's tweet, not trying to backtrack, but
*defending* his quote by saying that America was the land of oppressing
women, Jim Crow, KKK, etc. and that New York's motto was "Look upward,
not backward".



He was defending his original statement.

Epicureans, here's what we did for the meatloaf glaze. Started with Lizzy's catsup recipe. Yes, Tom Servo...I used Hunts. Subbed maple sirple for brown sugar. (Take that, Skip.) Switched the hot sauce to sriracha, per Muldoon. No vinegar.

I don't know what it's going to taste like but it smells heavenly. Should be delicious, except for the minor disaster with the meatloaf when the shaker top came off the bottle of Worchestershire sauce. She's a bit spicy.

No ranch dressing and no whiskey...at least not in the glaze. Also, no shellac, no lacquer. Real baked potatoes (thanks for the reminder, PuddinHead).

361 I'll tell you Cuomo's original statement is a lesson in the perfect being the left's enemy of the good.

If you consider how many times Cuomo used absolutes in his sentences, it's illustrative: "full", "every", "complete".

That's his expectation of America being merely "Great"--complete. I've long and often thought the libs put too big a burden on "solutions to crime" when they claim that "society is to blame" and if we completely fix society, crime would fade away.

Good way of making sure you're implication relationship never can be tested: If 1 were 0, then we'd cease to have any problems. If we could only list every star in the universe Kaboom would taste great! (Logically, all those statements are bizarrely true. Because the first can never be validated.)

389 What bothers me the most about "America was never great" is the pettiness and spite behind the whole sentiment. Adults should grow out of such things and should have enough self awareness to be bothered when a politician is trying to pander to them on the basis of their worst tendencies. But then again, isn't that what Marxism is all about? I also don't like the identity politics aspect of it, that "injustices were done to group x in the past, so to atone for that, we must now commit injustices against group y." Vile, paint by numbers morality. The correct solution is to make moral judgments on a case by case basis.

First, about 8 years ago, it was putting chipotle in freakin' EVERYTHING, no matter how inappropriate (chocolate bars, lasagne). When customers got tired of that, the trendy food companies switched to putting sriracha in EVERYTHING once again, no matter how inappropriate (cocktails, tacos). But now sriracha is already old-hat, so this year the new trendy thing is habanero -- even hotter! Whoopee! Let's put it in oatmeal and salad dressing!

Now they've already even graduated past habanero. A company just released Carolina Reaper salsa. For real.

Based on history, that is correct. Based on the last few years, I don't know. I think the same site had HRC winning at 80%.

NYS has some of the worst voter turnout of any state.

Cuomo won with about 22pct of the eligible vote only to be outdone by Warren Wilhelm, aka Bill 'The Red' DiBlasio who won with a whopping 14pct of the eligible vote.


One of the great problems is that GOP voters, especially in blue states are exceptionally lazy and unmotivated, largely because the GOP in these states are extraordinarily pathetic.

That's a bingo! You see, to Cuomo, NY is America and everything else is shit. When he says America isn't great, he's referring too all you other assholes.

Problem is, hard to pander to a certain group when everyone is listening.

Does this even move the needle though? Most of America knows this guy is a fucking retarded asshole (no offense to retarded assholes). Only the idiots in NY thought this guy was worth electing.

Now now. Let's not be too hasty. The Democrats have had a certain measure of success into psyching people out. Maybe he's just trying to play the same game. Create F.U.D. to bring about a certain outcome had he not planted the meme. It's worth a shot.

Yeah, but is the press meltdown of 2018 as awesome as the press meltdown of 2016?

Because the NY Times had Hillz at 92% in 2016, not a meager 75%. And the press is still trying to figure out what makes a Trump supporter tick, since most don't know any Trumpists personally.

I think they are just making sh** up so they can sell a few ads. They have no idea in reality.

Think about it though. Cuomo just told every union member that they suck balls. That everything they've done worked for and built, wasn't for shit.
America sucks.

I wonder how that will go over at the union halls all over New York?

The weird part is Cynthia Nixon didn't jump all over Cuomo for his remark but instead made a statement saying he was pandering to her base for votes.
