The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

We just starve little children, we go bomb houses.Sen. Bernie Sanders, Politburo (I-VT)


Quote II

“The government’s abject failure – and the huge risk we face of a bad deal or a no-deal Brexit – means that giving people a fresh say is now the right – and only – approach left for our country." London mayor Sadiq Khan


Quote III

“Irony is just honesty with the volume cranked up.” George Saunders

Bad behavior. Very bad behavior has cost a scientist big time.

The Me Too movement has toppled Hollywood executives, pundits, and bureaucrats since it burst onto the scene last year. Prompting a government agency to rename a geologic landform, however, may be a first.

Last week, the United States’ Board on Geographic Names quietly decided that Antarctica’s Marchant Glacier would now be called Matataua. A 7 mile-long ice stream located in eastern Antarctica’s Victoria Land, the glacier was originally named after Boston University geologist David Marchant in 1994. The change comes nearly a year after a BU-led investigation concluded that Marchant sexually harassed former graduate student Jane Willenbring in 1999 and 2000 while the two were doing fieldwork in Antarctica.

Perhaps the United States should emulate the EU in this matter. The EU to stop time changes. No more Spring ahead and Fall behind.


The EU is doing away with the twice-yearly clock changes and has given member states until April to decide if they will remain on summer or winter time. But there are fears Europe is heading for time-zone chaos.

***


Just when you think the Europeans have gained some common sense, they go full Snowflake.

Police in a United Kingdom precinct are urging residents to call for help when they feel insulted.

Or hurt.

Or slighted.

In a world where “snowflakes” regularly complain of “microaggressions” such as addressing an audience “ladies and gentlemen,” the South Yorkshire Police are encouraging people to “put a stop” to hate and report what they have loosely defined as “non-crime hate incidents.”

Piss off bloody wankers.

Follicly challenged? Bizarre cures for baldness.

Since the dawn of time, a problem has haunted a section of mankind. They just can’t stop their hair from falling out. With the hair loss industry estimated to be worth almost $3 billion, it is little wonder that many people have invented weird and wonderful treatments for this perpetual problem.From the ancient Egyptians to modern man, many have tried and failed to stem the ravages of time and keep the hair on their heads. Maybe these bizarre cures didn’t work, but you have to admit they were creative.

Kiddie porn, bestiality. One sick individual.


***


You can't fool Mother Nature, But, boys can't be boys to the left.

A new University of Michigan study urges preschool teachers to avoid saying “they’re just boys being boys” or to remind girls to have “good manners,” lest those teachers accidentally “contribute to gender inequality in early childhood.”

Heidi Gansen — who previously was awarded by the American Sociological Association for her research on “heteronormativity” in preschools — published her latest study in the new issue of the journal Sex Roles.


***


Remember when cars were cool? Why be cool when you can be Uncle Sam's spoiled nephew?


Cars are supposed to transport us – not parent us.

The government disagrees, of course. That’s not new. Uncle has been working hard to parent grown adults since at least the 1960s, when it first got into the saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaafety business.

Which of course is really the control business – and that business is as old as government itself.

Saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaafety is just the excuse, the window dressing – the curtain behind which lies Oz.


***

Are you a blade man? Do you have an extra $150 burning a hole in your pocket? Gillette has the razor for you.

It achieves that through some clever—and yes, safe—engineering. In fact, the most surprising thing about the Heated Razor may be how closely it resembles a more traditional model. At a glance, the cartridge looks quite a bit like other top-end Gillette options, and while the handle appears to add a little bit of bulk to accommodate the heating element, it’s still in line with what you’re used to.

Do as I say, not as I do. The Left and their global warming bullshit continues.

PRIVATE JET TRAFFIC BUMPED UP 30 PERCENT DURING CALIFORNIA CLIMATE CONFERENCE

San Francisco International Airport’s corporate jet traffic rose roughly 30 percent during an international climate change conference in California, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The ONT Musical Interlude



September 18, 1970, Jimi Hendrix was pronounced dead on arrival at St. Mary Abbot's Hospital in London at the age of 27 after choking on his own vomit. Hendrix left the message 'I need help bad man', on his managers answer phone earlier that night. Rumors and conspiracy theories grew up around Hendrix’s death. Eric Burdon claimed Jimi had committed suicide, but that’s contradicted by reports that he was in a good frame of mind. In 2009, a former Animals roadie published a book claiming that Jimi’s manager had admitted to him that he arranged the murder of Hendrix, since the guitarist wanted out of his contract. via thisdayinmusic.com

September 18, 2006, 73 year old country singer Willie Nelson and four members from his band were charged with drug possession after marijuana and magic mushrooms were found by police on his tour bus. Police had stopped the tour bus near Lafayette, Louisiana. via thisdayinmusic.com

Part Midas, part shit. Genius Award Winner.

A man has been arrested by the Customs department at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport here for allegedly trying to smuggle in one kg gold by hiding it in his rectum, an official statement said Wednesday.

The 24-year-old passenger was intercepted upon his arrival from Dubai on Monday, it said.

On detailed baggage examination and personal search, it was discovered that the accused had hidden nine gold bars, weighing 1.04 kg, inside his rectum, the release said.

McDonald's workers staged protests in several cities Tuesday in what organizers billed as the first multistate strike seeking to combat sexual harassment in the workplace.

In Chicago, one of the targeted cities, several dozen protesters rallied in front of McDonald's headquarters while a plane flew overhead with a banner reading, "McDonald's: Stop Sexual Harassment." In New Orleans, current and former employees chanted, "Hey, McDonald's, you can't hide - we can see your nasty side."

11 Almost-willowed theater presents...

A selection from Her Clumsy Suitors

Lying on the bed, through her mellow alcoholic buzz, she could see Brett at the door, turning the key and pocketing it, then reaching over and cranking up the radio. Metallica blared. She knew it would drown out their screams of passion.

His friend, standing nearby with the camcorder, chuckled, as Brett slid pseudo-suavely, over toward the bed. She began to unbutton her blouse, coyly revealing the demure one-piece bathing suit beneath. "Heh," she giggled.

Brett, still trying to look suave, sat down on the side of the bed. Then he stupidly slid off onto the floor. His friend started laughing and kicking Brett while filming. They yelled at each other and started laughing and wrestling on the floor.

Confused and frightened, she went to the door and found it wasn't really locked anyway.

In the bathroom, after throwing up repeatedly, she swore to herself, I only had one beer. And sixty previous "boyfriends." This failure at seduction meant nothing.

Wherever she was. Whenever it was. However she got there. However she left. She knew she had one beer and a clumsy suitor. She was traumatized for life. Never again able to speak the truth of it. Until one day she saw a man on teevee that she just knew had to have been him.

And she plotted her revenge. ...

Saw that too, but Drudge was screaming earlier too that the GOP is in trouble in Nov. Dunno if that is reverse psychology to keep us motivated...Been looking more into Q; still not sure what to think, but it has done ONE thing positive - people are more inclined to confront lefty pols, which is something I have been praying for forever. I hated the milquetoast, don't be too obnoxious or confrontational attitude the GOP has had. The Pantsuit was mocked so much today on Twitter because Q highlighted a tweet of hers and it made me laugh so hard, put a smile on my face.

63 I need to come forward with this story, and a blog whose owner occasionally humps trash is the perfect place for my revelation. Wymen must be believed and heard, always!

Matthew Dowd, the "Country Over Party" guy on the Twatters...raped me. Where and when he did the deed doesn't matter, maybe the 1980's, or maybe the 1970's, but he raped me. All I can remember from the horrific event is that Matt did it to me behind an Arbys.

As I tried to dull the pain from this event by talking to a psychologist, I recalled from talking from my other wymen friends and allies that Matthew Dowd was also fingered in an anon letter as the culprit behind the goat-blowing incident of either the 1980's or 1990's, also occuring behind an Arbys.

Since Matt believes that all accusations are credible, when is he going to address these incredibly credible accusations against him? Silence is evidence of guilt!

70 I just want to smack people who oppose Trump for stuff he said and did years ago, even decades ago. Seriously? Is the crude stuff we do in the past forever to damn us, there's no forgiveness or recognition of a changed heart? You cannot let anything go from the past??

Especially Christians, good God the entire point of the Gospel is that of sinners being saved and changing, being reckoned new creations, being sanctified by the work of the Holy Spirit.

Should we damn Peter forever for denying Christ not once, but three times? Should we condemn Paul eternally for having worked to persecute and kill Christians? Does not the principle of salvation ever apply?

This is soooo odd. The IL Attorney General Civil Rights Bureau is supposed to investigate, and penalize for this. And any bureaucrat worth his or her salt would jump on a high profile, high volume case that targets a hated, rich corporation.

I wonder if the protesters and their Union organizers are aware of that?

It's almost as if it were some sort of a stunt.

I figure he'll take the long way home so he can explore the West for a few months. He was the one I stayed up nights worrying about and fretting over. The death of his mother when he was nine really shook him but as it turns out, he grew into a fine, well balanced young man with purpose.

108 One of the early controversies of the church was when Christians who had denied their faith and said they worshipped Caesar during persecution later were up for office in various churches when Constantine was emperor.

The argument was that if they denied Christ, they cannot be allowed to be leaders in the church. I can't remember who it was that responded, I think it was Athanasius, but he pointed out the foundational principle of forgiveness and the example of Peter, who later became one of the greatest of the Apostles after denying Christ.

Sins of the past, are just that: of the past. Jesus died for those, too.

122 Michigan Official: Ban Bullet Sales by Anyone but Police
http://bit.ly/2D9WPCM

A commissioner in Wayne County, Michigan, is pushing a bill that would outlaw ammunition purchases from anyone other than police.
The commissioner, Reggie Davis (D), also wants to tax the bullets that police would sell.

His solution is to require gun owners to buy their bullets from police and to pass a "mental health check" before being allowed to complete the purchase. Moreover, he wants to tax the bullets for funds to fight gun violence via education.

123 I was at a beach house on the Oregon coast one year with family and some dragonflies flew by. We'd see them pretty regularly in the area, as it was swampy not far away.

Apparently they migrate, which I didn't know at the time.

148 It's just so difficult to reconcile our shared (positive) heritage, and the UK's role in establishing the most important and productive and civilized modern nations (the anglosphere), with its rapid descent into jaw-dropping orwellian authoritarianism.


Of course this degradation is seen in much of the anglosphere (Canada certainly, in some respects also NZ and Oz). And in the US, obviously - but we have a much firmer basis for freedom here.


In any case, by all means, re-play the Brexit thing. Have no idea, but am guessing this would not turn out to Khan's liking. Sadly the UK's a write-off now, has been for some time, so it's sort of academic. Like the rest of Europe (islands of sanity like "New Europe" notwithstanding).

Unfortunately we're getting into a job-rich environment where employers have to compete for workers and its not as easy to replace people as it once was. And, given the horror stories I'm hearing from various employers, its worse than ever trying to find good workers.

In any case, by all means, re-play the Brexit thing. Have no idea, but am guessing this would not turn out to Khan's liking. Sadly the UK's a write-off now, has been for some time, so it's sort of academic. Like the rest of Europe (islands of sanity like "New Europe" notwithstanding).

Yep. Gonna tell the Radium story again here.

Back in the early 20th century Radium was amazing it was this wonder material. Radiation was considered healthy and could do incredible things for your heath. And Radium had this neat feature where it glowed in the dark.

Watch companies started to put it on their dials (like glow in the dark is used today) which was really appreciated and was a big seller.

The way it was applied? Paintbrush, usually by young women, who had steady hands and were good at detail work.

After a few years, these girls started to suffer horrendous effects. One girl got cancer so bad in her mouth that her lower jaw rotted off. The picture was incredibly ghastly.

They'd lick the brush to get a nice point, dip it in the radium paint, lick the brush...

Eventually people worked out that this radiation stuff wasn't as healthy as they initially had thought. The radium was discontinued.

"The spectacle is right out of Euripides's Bacchae, as the
creaky old guard of the polis, Tiresias and Cadmus, dress up in trendy,
ridiculous ritual costumes to stumble along after the racing and
frenzied young maenads in their lethal courtship of suicidal Dionysian
madness."

So in Google News:

The new work that Google has done for the Chinese Government is nearing completion!

The
new Chinese Google search engine is soon going on line. For the first
time, from every device, every single search, website visited, every email sent and
received, will be captured and TIED TO YOUR CELL PHONE NUMBER! In real time, no less.


Of
course, the government will use this information to decide if you are
worthy of credit, boarding a plane or train, or right to buy basic goods
and services.


Google is the same company that has backed
out of a contract with the Department of Defense for cloud computer
services, worth millions. Because Google employees say the American military is bad and stuff.


Now go watch that 2016 Google employee
video and wonder what the average Google employee thinks about America,
it's history, it's Constitution. And their lack of understanding history of Communism.

Yeah, I get the same feeling.

I was telling a cow-orker today that the rules and regulations have become so complicated and invasive, many people just thrown in the towel and hope to be ignored or passed over. A lot of them see fees and penalties just another form of bribe to keep living and being allowed to work.

In a way you pray to a bureaucrat to intercede between you and the law, or you give paperwork and money to a lawyer and hope that he can put in the hopper, turn the handle a couple of cranks and out will pop compliance, like salt from some magical mill.

A lot of people rankle at being beholden to a system they can neither understand or influence.

281 210 Don't you myopic people think for a moment that if we had more conservative lawyers, things would be better off?
I mean, we basically ceded the field to the left and look at the mess we're in.
Same with education and the media.

It's really odd to see the misconceptions people have about lawyers, they seem to never remember that for every case which has a lawyer trying to get a liberal decision, there's another one on the other side opposing him. Now a fair criticism is that the conservative lawyers are all very GOP-e, the George Bush wing of the party. And mostly very rich, and like all of the rich, mostly out to protect their class privilege more than anything else.

The perception comes about probably because Trial Lawyers are the noisiest, and they are as a group flamingly liberal. (Michael Avenatti is a good example) There's been a long running joke in legal circles that has a lot of truth in it - C and D grade lawyers, who barely scrape through but have a good line of bull, all go to be trial lawyers. Solid B grade law students go on either the Law School Faculty track or get in line for a Judgeship. The top tier, 90+ Percentile students end up working for Exxon, Chase, and every other big money outfit around the world, and they're mostly the ones behind the scenes pulling all the strings.

314 I can find one bit of information out of this Texas special election that I think is quite significant, and which I think is going to have a big impact in the future. All of the Texas Dem's plans, and Beto's campaign, is depending on Hispanic voters going 90% for Democrats, which is why they're going with this total open borders message. They calculated that they can win if they get 90% of the Hispanic vote, and if they can, they will.

But in this special election, Hispanic voters went 50/50 for GOP/Democrat. They didn't get the numbers they thought they would. And in the latest poll for the Beto/Cruz race, among hispanic voters, its 55% Beto, 45% Cruz. Sure Beto is leading in that segment, but they're counting on a 90/10 split, and it ain't happening.

Sorry things have been kind of rough for you, Iasonas.
I've been in (unfortunately) several car accidents. Second time I was rear ended (maybe third), I hired this lawyer, but they seemed to be just dragging their feet. Never had an update, hadn't chatted with the guy's insurance, blah blah. I finally scheduled a conference with them, and the three main guys were there, sitting behind a desk together; it was meant to be intimidating. I told them I wanted to fire them, and they tried to tell me what a bad idea it was, etc, put pressure on me. I fired them anyway, they pissed me off with their antics.
Enter Scott, who was referred to me by a customer of the company I worked for. Even though Scott wasn't going to get a lot of money from the case, he worked hard for me. (The insurance didn't want to give me a lot because I had a pre-existing neck injury from the prior time I was rear ended.) Anyway, he got me a decent settlement, and frankly, is to this day one of the nicest professionals I've had to work with in any field.

My SO is in software, and he has also dealt with some whip smart patent lawyers, and he has been impressed.
There are terrific lawyers, and I hope things look up for you; it pains me that things are so bad it has made you this tense, and I mean that genuinely. When someone is passionate about their vocation, it's a pleasure to see them in it, because they excel and take pleasure in their work. I send you a virtual hug, because morons needs to support morons! =)

So no lawyer jokes from me until things look up. ;-)

Yeah there does seem to be an oversaturation of laywers, which probably explains why it can be tough to find work for some. Its kind of self-correcting, few professions have the level of professional requirements and if you can't do your job, people are gonna figure that out very quickly. But until then, its a bit of an issue. This has been noted quite a bit in the past: too many lawyers graduating where are they all gonna work?

It's also that they don't understand that taxes have to be raised on the middle and lower classes in order to pay for all those Social Programs, like Government-funded Transgender Surgeries, and Government-funded Healthcare for Illegals, and "Free College".

Blow smoke up the student's asses about their job prospects, placement percentages, etc and get all that sweet, sweet federally backed student loan money into the coffers. Then the kids graduate, finally look at the market and realize they're fucked.

392 103 I've heard that one of our local ambulance chasers once successfully defended a guy who fucked a dead deer on the grounds that CO's bestiality law defined animals as alive, and it's necrophilia laws defined victims as dead humans."

Even though that sounds horrible on it's face, don't you have to admire the guy who could think that one out? It's the prosecutions job to prove the defendant broke the law as written, and if the defense can show that he didn't, then the accused should go free.

And to defend this on a societal level, the real problem here is that the laws were written badly, worded too narrowly to cover situations like this. One of the functions of a good defense is to force the legislature to clean up a lot of their sloppy work, and it never happens unless someone forces them to do it. And I've never seen any other way work.

I see what you mean, but most lawyers shows grossly over-glamorize the job. Most legal work is routine and boring, just like at most jobs.

I honestly think the best lawyer show ever (that I've paid close attention to) is Better Call Saul. His unethical hi jinks are off the rails but it does portray the difficulty and humiliation of trying to build a solo practice, which many lawyers can relate to.
Most of the lawyer shows make it look like all you have to do is graduate with a law degree and you'll instantly be rich and get to bang hot chicks (or guys). Now why do we think so many unqualified people go to law school?

So I am apologizing for misconstruing his post and starting drama. But in my defense it hit a nerve because I was just talking today to a friend about how difficult it is to be in social situation when you tell someone your job and they crap down your neck because "lawyers are evil hurr hurr."
So again, I apologize but if you were told on a frequent basis that your job makes you an awful person, it would get old.

470 Lawyers, by definition of what they do, will always be the opposing quarterback. Every interaction with them is a game where either your team wins or theirs does. Hence the anger from both sides.

R had not held the seat in 139 years, and the District went +12 for crooked hillary.

Occasionally I would have a look at what was there, but nothing ever really struck my fancy...until one day in early '92. What appeared to be a legit Soviet army coat.

I believe it may have been legit because we'd had a couple of Soviet exchange students the year before. (When I say 'exchange students', I mean of course I suspect the guy was KGB and the chick was GRU.) Which was juuuuuuuuust about the time the USSR went tits-up.

On the other hand there is a woman and her live in boyfriend who, when they broke up, decided to fight over EVERYTHING. Here's a hint.

520 A story of some very strong Conservative legal work that I wish was more widely known, since it was one of the most significant legal victories of the last 20 years - I'm talking about the work that Chevron's legal team did in destroying Donziger and the multi-billion dollar Ecuadorean Enviro-Judgement, which was proved to be a total fraud.

Far too long a tale to summarize here, as it has gone on for 2 decades, but a recent judgment in the EU, supporting the US judgment that Chevron's team won, may be the final nail in its coffin.

In terms of dollars, this was the greatest attempted fraud in history, amounting to (if memory serves) about $12 Billion dollars - and what's more, this money, if Donziger had won, was mostly all going to be pumped into leftist enviro causes here in the US. Chevron's team not only won this case, they put a stake through the heart of the Enviro lobby that they'll never recover from.

521 Here's how it used to work: judges applied common sense and logic to the situation, reasoning that the law may not say exactly the specific perfect wording for each and every conceivable application, but everyone damn well knows what it was meant for.

You know what that ain't? Saint Scalia's textualism.

If you want the power of the state limited, one place to start is insisting the law's be limited to what the text actually says and legislatively amending them when the results are other than desired. Instead of some asshole in a black robe telling you the atextual results he prefers are "common sense."

526 470 Lawyers, by definition of what they do, will always be the opposing quarterback. Every interaction with them is a game where either your team wins or theirs does. Hence the anger from both sides. Everyone has lost to a lawyer and everyone has won. That's just the way it is. If you want societal acceptance, you probably picked the wrong occupation. Just the way it is.

593 I think I know why people are angry at lawyers, and it is because over the last 80 years, Government has been taking over more and more of what used to be the private sphere until today, Government dominates everything. And Lawyers are the only interface ordinary citizens have through which they can attempt to stop Government from rolling over them. Of course, they can throw themselves on the mercies of the Bureaucracy, but we all know how that works.

Lawyers are not the cause of this, but they are the agents of the change, both for and against, and thus they get the blame. Lawyers today are what the Egyptian Priesthood was to Pharaoh. And since the vast majority of the population was too terrified of Pharaoh to ever criticize him openly, they vented their wrath on his servants instead.

I agree.
I hate the fact that we have a income tax, but I pay an accountant to do my taxes so it's done right.I don't hate the guy though, he's a good guy that does his job right. I also get the sense he'd fit in well here.So I wish people would take that perspective more. People will call me and ask me questions like "Well, if the cops/government/other party were wrong, why I have to hire a lawyer out my own pocket?"I tell them I wasn't there when it happened and I don't have a time machine to stop it, but if they go into that courtroom, the only one on their side is me. So people have to figure out if that's worth it to them, or if they would rather spend their money of stupid stuff.I could spend the money I pay my accountant on other stuff, but I don't.
And I can still voice my disagreement with the tax code.

617 I think I know why people are angry at lawyers

I kind of hinted at it above but the main reason I think is because while there's scumbags and awful people in every line of work they rarely impact very many people's lives. Yeah that salesman is a fraudulent jerk who ripped you off, but the bad lawyer just ruled that the ACA is a tax. Yes, that mechanic did 3000 bucks of unnecessary labor but that lawyer just got a serial pedophile and murderer off on a technicality.

Lawyers have greater impact on the world than most jobs, and hence when they do bad, it really hurts everyone else. Plus, everyone is hardwired to desire justice and hate injustice. When granny sues McDonalds for a kabillion dollars for coffee being hot, that really pisses people off, because its unjust.

627 It is not possible EVER to write the perfect law nobody can find a way around or abuse, let alone the perfect law for every single possible situation and event.

Sure. But so what. The question is whether someone should go to prison or lose their life savings when the law doesn't actually cover their situation or you simply admit the obvious: that the law doesn't reach them and their supposed misdoing. One way empowers the state and the other limits it.

Liberals say the exact same thing about the constitution that you are saying about the law in general. They disagree that the text should be formally amended when it produces disagreeable results. Instead, a wise Latina should just give it the common sense interpretation needed to get the right result.

640 There's a great essay on the net somewhere about wolves, sheep, and sheepdogs. If anyone hasn't seen it, you should try to find it, it really explains a lot, and explains it well.

Most people are sheep, and that's not a bad thing. They are trusting, do what their neighbors do, don't make waves, don't think about things too much, but that's what makes the world go round. It's good when most people can people like that.

There are always wolves out there - you've met them, these are the ones who've realized it's easy to prey on the sheep, to take advantage of their trusting, simple nature. The wolves, in their wicked ways, are usually much more clever and certainly more devious than the sheep.

And then there are the sheepdogs. The sheepdogs really aren't very different than the wolves; they have fangs, and claws, and they can bite and kill, and they can see the same weaknesses and foolish patterns in the sheep that the wolves can see. And yet they've decided, for their own reasons, to protect the sheep, and stop the wolves, something the sheep on their own could never do.

The sheepdogs out there know who they are. Yes, you are as smart as a wolf, and you're a lot like a wolf - but you're not a wolf, because you decided not to be.

644 Liberals say the exact same thing about the constitution that you are saying about the law in general.

Yeah but that's a misunderstanding of the constitution. Its not a law, its the framework upon which the law is built upon. The Constitution limits government to specific tasks and powers granted it by the people from whom all power is assumed in the constitutional republic.

And it DOES take wisdom to understand the constitution, its not so cut and dried no human need ever think over a decision. That's how we get things like slander laws, despite the fact that the 1st amendment guarantees freedom of expression. Because there are limits based on other rights. The 9th and 10th amendments specifically assume that there is more to be said and known about the topic than the constitution states.

The difference between their position and mine (and, historically, law for centuries and Blackstone in particular) is that they think the clear is nebulous and doesn't mean what it says. I'm saying the clear is exactly what it says, and the uncertain can be reasoned from the clear.

655 The 9th and 10th amendments specifically assume that there is more to be said and known about the topic than the constitution states.

I've always understood those amendments to mean the "more to be said" part ought to be the province of the states.

The constitution was supposed to be a document spelling out what the government can do, which is much more restrictive than a list of what it can't do. Madison opposed the Bill of Rights for that reason - he believed (and it's difficult to argue he was wrong) once you include a list of things the government can't do the implication is everything else is allowed.

659 See, and if you keep this sort of discussion alive, people will start thinking that you support Lysander Spooner's view of the Constitution and Law as a contract, and as such, meaning exactly what was written, not what was meant.

Right, which is why originalists don't go by the written letter of the constitution but by the intent and explanation of the founding fathers. Its interpretation, but its interpretation based on intent and meaning, not what you want to shape society into or what your personal whims are.

Since it is literally not possible to have all the perfect laws perfectly written, we must rely on the wisdom of prudent and just men of honor and discernment to properly interpret and apply those laws. And that's where we need to be focused: creating a society and structures that produce such men (and women, for those who do not comprehend that the term means all humanity).

670 Blackstone isn't a very good example for thinking about modern law, particularly the areas we've been focusing on. He lived in a common-law world. To a very significant extent, we no longer do. Is there a single U.S. jurisdiction that hasn't abolished common-law crimes and enacted a criminal code and code of criminal procedure? It's all statutes. And even in areas not taken over wholesale by statute, like torts, there typical are legislative interventions and courts tend to be rather more rigid in how they interpret the common law (as opposed to the freewheeling heyday of the common law). The story of law in the last half century or more has been the steady erosion of the common law in favor of codification.

That third paragraph is particularly interesting: ..."the verbal assurance you provided us that DOJ and FBI would not provide the White House"...

There are specific canons of statutory interpretation that, when applied, generate respect for the stability and predictability of law, even in the face of half-baked schemes that have to be passed on procedural shenanigans in the dead of night, before they are read.

BAMN is never one of them.

Just to be clear, I know of no significant modern conservative constitutional authority who claims to apply any such sort of "originalism." Almost all are disciples of Scalia, and he was dead set against that sort of interpretation. He was a textualist, with terms defined as they were commonly understood in the era of enactment.

Where are the sheepdogs though? In the Iowa murder case, the father, the aunt and probably the victim herself thought that the right of Mexican criminals to freely enter and roam about is more important than the life of the victim.

They are all mindless sheep that had been conditioned by wolves, but there was no sheepdog that counteracted it.

724 697 Black beret meant Ranger.

Until Rump Ranger Shinseki tried to make everyone in the Army feel special by giving them the black beret.

And the troops cursed Shinseki when they got the berets because unless you did things exactly right to block out the beret, it would automatically look like sh!t.

And then Shinseki went to the VA and proceeded to screw the veterans.

747 Desert Storm was the first time the West really got to see almost first line Soviet gear in action.

The T-72 was supposed to be this great super platform to such an extent the M-60A3 with its 105mm would not hurt the tank. The US Marines in their 'out-classed' M-60A3s massacred a bunch of T-72s.

Shakespeare was making lawyer jokes. Chaucer probably made lawyer jokes. The anonymous author of Beowulf probably had lawyer jokes that were lost.

If a person ever has had to hire a lawyer, there's a 50% chance they don't like lawyers because they lost. And add 25% because even if they won, they hated being in the system

More to it than that. Comparing operational art is likely better than comparing tactics.

1. Soviet equipment was designed to be used to fight with a specific operational doctrine in a specific environment.
2. The users of that equipment (Egyptians, Syrians, Iraqis) were students of the folks that wrote that doctrine
3. Their opponents (IDF and Coalition) were teacher grade, not student grade.

They imported like crazed monkeys, of course. And I thought all vehicles and armor were imported. China and Egypt sold Soviet-designed systems, but I thought Iraq's activities were limited to unconventional/WMD and some missile work.

Posted by: redc1c4 at September 19, 2018 12:46 AM (rjbMC)


1. Miniaturized electronics need a box to live in. Lots of vibration and getting knocked on by crew, so bulky aluminum. Wider temp range of operation needed, too. Noisy power, dust, moisture, etc has to be handled. Stuff adds up
2. Additional power requirements and digital signal lines needed. Thumb diameter cables.
3. Those turrets did not start out with a whole lotta excess space. Adding a box or two and a screen and a buncha buttons/swtiches/keypads and leaving room for the commander and gunner is not easy.
4. You can only run so much through the turret slip ring. Signals aren't multiplexed (that right, SMH?), so there's a limit to mounting boxes in the hull and running displays etc in the turret.
5. You get to a point where the effort to modify to hang yet another box gets close to a redesign.
6. Can't expand the engine compartment. Hull survivability is going to demand more armor soon. More armor, same powerplant = crappy automotive performance.

If you could upgrade forever, we'd be driving Shermans. You can't sh you design new models. Smart folks upgrade before they are outclassed.

It didn't help they were willing to ally with Rome to screw the neighbors. The Romans had a political strategy that worked like a charm over and over - they'd ally with a tribe to conquer its neighbors and then turn on that (now friendless) tribe.

It wasn't until Vercingetorix the Gauls were truly united against Rome, and by that time it was too late. Dan Carlin has a great podcast comparing Vercingetorix to Geronimo, in that they both led a hopeless cause that might not have been hopeless earlier.

Related, was happy to read the account of a Soviet soldier in Stalingrad, who noted how sore his shoulder got from a long gun battle where he was shooting his Mosin. I use a butt-pad on Mosins, period.


The account also talked about how he had to start using a piece of brick to bash open the action, as it was getting clogged with debris/plaster falling on him during the battle (think he was inside the Red October or Barricades factory, WWII's only prolonged, full-blown *indoor* infantry battles. Palm of his right hand had become too sore from bashing open the bolt.


Mosin shooters often ask or wonder about these questions, appears Red Army soldiers had the same issues with the rifle.

Because he likes eating lamb shanks and mutton. He likes selling the lambs to the butchers so he has money to buy his wife/childfren the food/clothing/shelter they need.

He doesn't do it out of love/respect for the sheep. They are his livlihood - the wolves his competition.

Posted by: Lurking Cynic at September 19, 2018 01:01 AM (ckrWP)

864 Yeah and now the Soviets are "reserving the 'right' of response" against Israel.

Not any more.

Bibi played this very carefully - the Israelis presented evidence that the Israeli planes had returned to Israel before the Russian plane was targeted by the Syrian air defenses, and Bibi offered to send the air force commander to Moscow to explain further.

Putin then acknowledged that it was a mistake, and basically said not to do it again.

So, Israel will have to be more careful in making sure that there are no Russian aircraft nearby when doing a strike, out of fear that the Syrian idiots will shoot the Russian plane down.

The interesting question is why Israel had targeted something near Latakia, which is the center of Russian military activity in Syria. Normally, that area is off-limits for Israel. Apparently the Iranians and Hezbollah had built a missile factory there, knowing that the Israelis would be reluctant to strike it.

I'm sure the quiet message the Israelis gave the Russians was that if they keep the Iranians out of that area, Israel will leave that area undisturbed.

878 The interesting question is why Israel had targeted something near Latakia, which is the center of Russian military activity in Syria. Normally, that area is off-limits for Israel. Apparently the Iranians and Hezbollah had built a missile factory there, knowing that the Israelis would be reluctant to strike it.

I'm sure the quiet message the Israelis gave the Russians was that if they keep the Iranians out of that area, Israel will leave that area undisturbed.

880 826 Did not know Iraq produced any vehicles or armor, much less T-72s. That's sort of stunning news. They certainly messed around with crude ballistic missiles/Scud variants a bit, and had a serious nuke development program, and impressive CW, including being the only non-world power to produce VX (a very serious and impressive feat), but I didn't think they produced any conventional arms at all.


They imported like crazed monkeys, of course. And I thought all vehicles and armor were imported. China and Egypt sold Soviet-designed systems, but I thought Iraq's activities were limited to unconventional/WMD and some missile work.

Depends on who you listen to. Lion of Babylon was a program to locally produce the T72M1 (Polish flavor).

Iraqis said they made 100. Poles said none assembled using local manufacture. Pole did sell kits to upgrade the T72 to T72M1. ERA, anti-ATGM systems, add-on armor.

888 I think Bibi has spent as much time in Moscow as any important world leader in recent years. He was one of two guests of honor on Victory Day this year (Serbian president the other - quite a pairing - Serbia is a popular brother slavic Orthodox blah blah blah country for Russia). And I don't think Bibi gets dictated to when he's in Moscow, at all.


Arc, I think that weird dynamic - Russia being clear Israel will not hesitate to act in Syria on given issues, Iran and Assad constantly playing games to exploit Israel's desire to avoid Russian assets to protect their own shenanigans - has been going on for a while. As usual, Israel seems to have outstanding (nearly perfect) intel as a basis for its actions, and with active Israel-Russia de-confliction, doubt there's much room for a real misunderstanding by Moscow.


Also, really, I don't think Moscow would dare f**k with the Israelis. Not in their class, incredibly enough.

I do not usually ascribe to the theory of 'Bad Luck.' People usually make their own beds.

However, the Soviet 'people' (I implicitly and explicitly leave out their godless, evil whoreson leaders and 'intelligentsia') have to have had the worst luck known on God's green earth during the 20's-50's.

I think that the Russians and the Israelis treat each other with a great deal of respect. (After all, Israel is the most Russified country on earth outside the former USSR, thanks to all the ex-Soviet Jews.) Israel even got rid of visa requirements for Russians, figuring that it was in Israel's long-term interests to have as many Russians visit as possible.

Also, really, I don't think Moscow would dare f**k with the Israelis. Not in their class, incredibly enough.

I think that it has been part of Israel's strategic doctrine for decades that they can't beat the Russians - so again, a very delicate diplomatic dance.

You could make the argument that if they'd hanged Lenin from a lamp post they could have avoided almost all that bad luck.

In 1939 Hitler's position was immensely improved by his alliance with Stalin. Had the Russians been against the Germans from the start the Germans may have failed to take France.

I struggle with just exactly how much blame a people deserve for their leaders. Are the Germans more to blame for Hitler than the Russians for Stalin? If so, why?

Finishing up a Stalingrad book (Voices from Stalingrad), and as you'd expect it's pretty numbing. Accounts from both sides (this is where I read the Mosin-Nagant story that was so amusing). Recommended.


When I was there, the side of the street of Nevskiy Prospekt in Leningrad had the advisory "During bombardment, this side of the street is safer" painted (and regularly re-painted) on the buildings, as a memorial. The rather substantial Russian women were shocked at the skinny American college girls when we went to a public banya ("you have nothing for the hard times!"). I'm guessing (hoping) that young Russians have more knowledge and emotional attachment to the events of that era than most American yute.

922 Russia has no interest or stake in fighting with the Israelis, I'm sure, so it's an academic point. Was just saying that any potential engagements - which would take place in Israel's region, not anywhere near Russia - the Russians really aren't in Israel's league. Not even close.


In other words, there's no escalation ladder or options for Moscow when it comes to Israel, at least military ones. Moscow's allies - um, well, the staggering zombie of their one remaining ally - are obviously just a punching bag for Israel, when Jerusalem decides to act. And Russia's got pitiful power projection capacity.


But neither views each other as a likely or desirable military adversary, and neither has an interest in tussling, so academic.

TBH, it's always annoyed me when someone (usually a leftie), talks about how Russia suffered in WWII.
First off, it was the whole USSR - you were told to go to war, and the leaders practically threw their people at the Germans as a bulwark against invasion.

But back up a little bit, and Russia was totes cool with Hitler's programme - until he stupidly decided to open that second front. Then there was Lend-Lease, the awesome deal they got from us, whilst Klaus Fuchs and others were stealing secrets at Los Alamos.
I feel sorry for the people that had no choice, but when the USSR is lauded for its performance in WWII I would say it is mixed AT BEST.

Having whole units charge German positions with most unarmed (pick up a weapon from a dead comrade!) while having NKVD units behind the charge shooting any who don't charge with sufficient vigor is sound military strategy. That is, if you have a lot of men and don't value life.

955 The cultural structure and dynamics the officer linked to poor military performance far, far, far pre-date any Islamic influence.

Insane Arab tribalism. I read an article by an F-15 instructor once, who had worked with both Israeli and Saudi F-15 pilots.

If an Israeli washes out of F-15 training, he is done - it doesn't matter if he is the nephew of the Prime Minister, or the grandson of a billionaire. Israel's defense partially rests on the quality of a few hundred fighter pilots, and they are ruthless in getting the best.

If you want to wash a Saudi out of F-15 program, then you have to worry about what tribe he's from, how pissed the tribe is going to be if he washes out, if you can compensate the tribe for the slur on the tribe's honor, etc., etc., etc. Bottom line, the Saudis don't focus like a laser on pilot quality, and it shows operationally.

That being said, the Arabs fought decently in the 1973 war, so assuming that they will always be incompetent is a dangerous one.

They are also good at irregular warfare, where having strong tribal bonds is an advantage motivating small units fighting on their home territory.

Inahs'Allah is islamic fatalism. Maybe they always had fatalism in their genes and attached Allah to it. Yanks have a 'Can Do!' and 'Gung Ho!' attitude that has been with us since the birth of our Nation.

As far as the problem predating islam, tribalism might have something to do with it. Various tribes cannot be organized into an efficient fighting force, akin to our history of The Wild West and our Native tribes or Caesar and the Gallic tribes (as mentioned above). For a while, islam united them (see: Ottoman Empire).

963 "Gung Ho" was first used in the United States Marines when Evan Carlson formed his Raiders. Carlson had been an observer in China in the 1930s observing the Chinese. In China "Gung Ho" meant to work together. After being adopted by the Raiders it morphed into being a code word for someone who's very motivated.

I have to re-read that piece that Fox2! so kindly found for me. He focuses on Arab military performance but one can find sub-par performance in African and Latin American contexts - and European too.

Posted by: platypus, gg channel at September 19, 2018 01:48 AM (yUPCi)

Islam is simply a heresy of Christianity.

Ol' Mo removed personal responsibility for sin, and then made lending money for profit illegal, and then took away any sexual sins that might cause one pause, and absolutely took away any personal relationship with God, because that might make demands upon one's conscience. The "God" of Islam is not comprehensible, and does not adhere to any logical or sensible system of any kind. He does what he wills. And if you can't figure out what he wants, you can't be held accountable for providing it.

What is left means you just have to say some prayers, a few times a day, and God will be happy with you and you can do as you please.

Then old Mo added in a bunch of people to hate, so you have some reason to get up in the morning, and all is right with his world.

It is a heresy, nothing more.

And like all heresies, it is doomed to failure. It has had remarkable lasting power, but made no real inroads against the Truth. It may take some time, but it will pass.

Sort of. The thing is that Allah is capricious, except in one regard. If you lose your life in jihad, you are *guaranteed* to get to paradise. That's why there are jihadis. They want that guarantee.

1040 According to the intertubes, one pound of gold (12 ounces) is 4cm wide x 4cm long x 1.5cm high. So not real big, but larger than I want as a suppository, and 2 pounds would be larger, but not double size. I'm not sure what the calculation is, being an artsy sort.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at September 19, 2018 12:33 AM (39g3+)

The specific gravity of gold is 19.6. So a two pound bar of gold would be roughly 1/20th the size of a two-pound turd.

A Troy ounce is also bigger than the everyday (avoirdupois) ounce. About 30 grams as opposed to 28 grams.

There are no true samurai left, as they were all killed in the Big Bang. Only their Spirits lived on to inhabit the flesh of the Japanese.

Math Time.

7000 grains - 1 lb (avoirdupois)
16 oz (avdp) per pound, so 1 oz avdp = 437.5 grains

5760 grains = 1 lb Troy
12 oz T per Troy pound, so 1 oz troy = 480 grains

1047 since we're talking, kinda, about samurais, etc, this tidbit i just read in "Retribution" was interesting...

Jap battleship gets sunk, Jap destroyer has cutter out rescuing survivors.

cutter is full, and then some, but swimmers are still trying to get aboard, which would, of course, swamp the boat, throwing *everyone* back into the water.

the solution?

those in the boats pulled out swords and started hacking the heads off those in the water. their shipmates.

''Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.'' George Orwell, 1984

So it's a great, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Kavanaugh. I would relish it. What a chance to stand up for yourself, for freedom, for due process, for your country. But it takes some piss and vinegar, say of a Clarence Thomas. Unfortunately Kavanaugh strikes me as a vanilla wafer.

Breaking: Kavanaugh's Accuser Says She Won't Testify Until The FBI, Which Has Already Declined to Investigate Her Non-Federal-Jurisdiction 37 Year Old Allegations, Completes Its Investigation, Sometime After a Democrat is President

Coming over Tucker Carlson: After saying she would testify, she now says she won't, not until the FBI investigation (which is not happening) is completed.



Strangely enough, this tracks perfectly with the Democrats' talking points that the FBI must conduct a long, slow investigation which, conveniently enough, delays the vote until after the midterms.

And what would Republicans do then?

Well, believe it or not, even Jeff Flake says if she doesn't testify, then they just move forward with the confirmation:



And Jim Acosta decided to deceptively edit a Kavanaugh clip to create even more CNN #FakeNews.

FBI has already turned down any investigation because duh, it is impossible to "investigate" a supposed incident where no one knows when it happened, and no one knows where it happened. Not to mention that it was never a federal case, but a local police matter, if it was anything at all.

Play Poker ever ? Hold 'Em ? Seven Card ?

The Big Money is there when I quit looking at what I think their hands are - and how I'd play 'em.

When I get in that groove of reading their hands ... and how I know THEY'LL play 'em ... that's when I make much, much better than six small bets an hour.

And usually when I don't get invited back to the good house games.

109 Jeff Flake: If Kavanaugh Accuser Fails To Show Up, I'll Support Move To Push Nomination Forward
https://bit.ly/2DbCblT

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, sits on the Judiciary Committee and had previously said the committee should hold off on voting until they hear from the accuser. However, Flake said Tuesday that if Ford fails to appear at the hearing scheduled for Monday, he would support his party's push to move forward on a vote on Kavanaugh.

"I think we'll have to move to the markup," he told CNN.

Flake said he's hopeful Ford will accept the committee's invitation and speak at the hearing. "I hope she does. I think she needs to be heard," he said.

So, there you have it. If Ford is a no-show, and it's looking like she might be, then he'll vote to move this nomination of an eminently qualified judge forward.

134 So, there's no Ford in our future?

Posted by: Joe Mama at September 18, 2018 08:53 PM (2i1Ph)

135 "Crucial facts and witnesses"?

According to Ford's own story, there were only three possible witnesses who could have any relevant testimony: Ford herself, Kavanaugh, and Mark Judge. And we've already heard from all of them.

Ford herself says she didn't tell anybody about the attack until 2012, so there can't be any outcry witnesses.

Ford herself says the alleged attack took place in a locked bedroom, so other than the 3 people she says were in the room, there can't be any other witnesses to the alleged attack.

Ford herself says that immediately after the attack, she went into the bathroom next to the bedroom, adjusted her clothes, and checked herself to make sure she didn't look like she'd just been attacked. So there can't be any witnesses who saw her in a disheveled state after the alleged attack.

Kavanaugh and Mark Judge flatly deny the alleged attack ever happened.

Case closed. There is no evidence to support Ford's claims, and there is no possibility of the FBI, or anybody else, ever finding any.

And possibly try and impeach him if they take control of the House (not that they'd be able to get it through the Senate; but the process would make it more difficult for Kavanaugh to do his job, and would generate donations from the base).

While on the way home from work today, I heard on the radio that she was claiming to have received death threats. I figured that was the excuse that she'd use to get out of testifying in front of the Senate.

192 Feinstein On Kavanaugh Accuser: 'I Can't Say That Everything Is Truthful'
https://bit.ly/2QHo4HC

Feinstein wants scores of witnesses. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, says he will hold a hearing on Monday. The problem: Ford has gone AWOL.

Now, after all of this, Feinstein isn't sure if Ford is being totally truthful. From Fox News' Chad Pergram, Feinstein said, that Ford "is a woman that has been, I think, profoundly impacted, on this...I can't say that everything is truthful. I don't know."

273 I could never figure that out...until now. The vagueness was a calculation that the FBI could be forced to do an investigation, and the lack of facts meant it would take forever to pin it down. Thus, SCOTUS delayed until after midterms. Or, Kav withdraws/is withdrawn, and we start over with a new person.

I'm just guessing, of course.

Posted by: Moron Robbie


She is a signatory on some letter as a health professional. Here's Heavy.com's explanation of the letter:

The letter signed by Christine Blasey was also released as a press release on June 14, 2018. "America's Health Professionals Appeal to Trump Administration: End Family Separation at Border Immediately" it's headlined. (At the time, the family separation policy was hotly criticized by people on both sides of the political aisle, and Trump eventually said he was changing the policy.)

The press release on the letter says in part: "Thousands of medical voices from across the United States have joined forces with Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) to urge the Trump administration to immediately halt the separation of migrant and asylum seeking children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. A letter, addressed to U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, signed by more than 5,000 experts across the health and child development fields, and calling for swift action, was delivered today to the administration."


So yeah, she fancies herself 'a health professional'.

--------------------

That would only happen if the vote were to occur after the November election. Most of the conservatives who vote will probably vote for her because DeLeon is all but guaranteed to be worse. A lot of other people will vote for her just because she's the incumbent. Between those two groups, she might be able to pull off a win. But if she votes for Kavanaugh, she risks losing support from the latter group.

So she won't risk it before the election.

481 Blasey Ford Tells Grassley Why She Has Not Accepted Invitation to Testify
https://bit.ly/2NQIaR6

The Senate Judiciary Committee asked Christine Blasey Ford to come forward and testify on Monday about her accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. She claims he sexually assaulted her in high school, over 36 years ago. She has not accepted the invitation to tell her story publicly in Congress, however, puzzling many senators.

Tuesday night, her attorneys sent a letter to Chairman Chuck Grassley explaining their client's hesitation. They claim that the committee was trying make Ford testify at the same table as Kavanaugh.

Natasha Bertrand
@NatashaBertrand
Wow. Blasey Ford says that Grassley scheduled the public hearing expecting her to testify "at the same table" as Kavanaugh. At the same table as the man she says once tried to rape her.
5:21 PM-Sep 18, 2018

"While Dr. Ford's life was being turned upside down, you and your staff scheduled a public hearing for her to testify at the same table as Judge Kavanaugh in front of two dozen U.S. senators on national television to relive this traumatic and harrowing incident," the authors allege.

A couple of spokesmen for Grassley rejected that claim.

Garrett Ventry
@GarrettVentry
To be clear: this is absolutely false.

Natasha Bertrand

Wow. Blasey Ford says that Grassley scheduled the public hearing expecting her to testify "at the same table" as Kavanaugh. At the same table as the man she says once tried to rape her.

This is a pretty bold, and very inaccurate, assumption. Prof. Blasey Ford and Judge Kavanaugh were never going to testify on the same panel/at the same table.

Yeah, according to her, a couple of "highly inebriated" giggling teen boys locked her in a room, and one of them pawed at her clothes. Given how drunk she says they both were, it's unlikely either of them would have been able to rape her, even if they wanted to, which they probably didn't.

A normal teenage girl would have kneed the guy in the crotch, told him to stop being a jerk, and walked away without giving it another thought.

The fact that some drunken teenage groping episode (if it even happened), has haunted her for life says something very disturbing about this chick's mental stability.

When modern technology is no longer to keep the corpse of RBG animated, it will be Armageddon. The Dems will have accusations for every nominee on the list ready to go. They will do anything to stop Trump from naming a replacement. I mean anything.

When the GOP picks up 10 senate seats in the midterms they won't need to have hearings for the next couple.

This will make a dent in Dem's lock on suburban mom's because 49 % of their kids are male.

514 How can anyone investigate this "crime"? We don't know what date it happened on. We don't know where it happened. She was groped. There was no rape and there certainly isn't evidence for this attack. There's nothing and it happened 35 years ago. There is no evidence of a crime and no evidence that anything happened to this woman.

And the other guy that supposedly rescued her has said that he has no knowledge of this party.

I think the Democrats were counting on what I was counting on - a flat out run for the exits by a couple of cultivated and handpicked (R) Senators, prompting a withdrawal of the nomination.

This didn't happen. They had Flake dancing around it, but none of the other usual suspects complied.

Maybe it's that Kavanaugh is "of the body," as some suspect. I doubt it. These people don't know from loyalty. It could be bad polling, but only on the (R) side. I figure that (R) Senators' internal polls showed them doom if they voted against this nominee.

Declassification process is a process, not a single act. Some material may be withheld, or redacted, when it's all over. Doubt Trump will over-rule all appeals - if there are any - over disputed items.


Four categories of materials, all quite different, so it will take longer for some to come out. Expected that specified pages of FISA affidavit and the reports of Ohr interviews will be first to emerge, last will be the broad category of communications concerning RUSSIA! by top DOJ/FBI officials.


Media has had full FISA affidavit for over a year, most likely. FYI.

if they were rude enough to him and his family.

"Checkmate" like she's countered the Republicans and they're helpless. Then one says the FBI cannot investigate without Trump's approval. They think this is some kind of genius maneuver, its like talking to 8 year olds. They're convinced the FBI can investigate a 36 year old claim a boy tried to touch her boobie as part of "background checks" which they've already done 6 of.

The ignorance and lack of comprehension on display is ... amazing to behold.

641 Mr Scogg,
Diane Feinstein is on the 2016 general election ballot in California. They use a jungle primary and she is facing a leftist Democratic Hispanic candidate. She got a significant number of votes in the primary but the last polling (Probolsky Research poll, conducted between Aug. 29-Sept. 2) I saw indicated she was only eight points up before this stuff started after Labor Day.

Both the LA Times and the SF Chronicle called her out on it, probably because they want the more leftist DeLeon to win. She has pissed off CA Republicans who might have voted for her instead of the even more left DeLeon. Some Republicans might have also left that race blank as a pox on both sides. She probably is either in a dead heat or behind DeLeon is my guess which is why she is backtracking. 1/3 of California voters are still Republican--add that to the identity vote and Feinstein may go down. Not left enough for the new Dems and made herself poison with Republicans.

If it is not too much trouble, I would suggest informing oneself before commenting.

It was always heavily doped with Socialism from his early days before he split from the Party.

The Ethiopia thing was the beginning of the end of though. The socialism was popular, but no one understood why he went to Ethiopia.

He could've weathered the unpopular war if it went well, but getting humiliated by Haile Selassie and then bailed about by the Krauts was too much for people to take. The Army never gave a fuck after that.

A big fan of fascism (before it took on its current invidious connotation)? FDR.

He and many others viewed fascism - including one Schicklgruber - viewed fascism as the wave of the future, where government would partner with industry to promote national goals. Fascism at that time was viewed as the partnership between the people, the government, and the companies, to achieve national greatness. Tough platform to criticize, no?

But for Adolf, who added the racial/ genocidal element, fascism would probably be in favor today. See, e.g., "industrial policy."

He tried.

Things started off well enough. Ethiopia folded pretty quickly. But then he went after Greece. And the Greeks fought back and pretty much slowed things to a crawl. And then the British insisted on joining the show (over Greek objections, from what I understand), and the Germans were pretty much forced to get involved at that point. It did put off the invasion of the USSR by a critical month or two, though.

And then there was the misadventure in North Africa. It seemed simple enough. Send the army from Tripoli to Alexandria against light British opposition, and build the new Roman Empire on the Southern Med. But then Waverly's Gallop happened, and once again the Germans had to bail out the Italians.

The trouble is that conservatives lack the resources the left has to
fight back in kind. The left has layperson volunteers willing to lie for
them, and they have the media. And it would have been tricky just to
ignore them and go ahead with the vote because of the 5th column cucks
looking for an excuse for their cuckery.

Yes, and there is something else. What has happened the last month with the Kavanaugh situation was planned. People had to get together and dream this evil crap up. There were steps to this, choreographed with the press, to smear BK. This was no accident. It tells us what these people are about.


Decent people don't concentrate on being devious and evil. These attacks and methods were devised by evil-thinking people. Democrats to be sure, but #Nevers have their fingerprints, too. They spend their time thinking about evil things that only tear down, not build. They need to be identified and called out.

Conservatives need to wake up and understand the old rules of politics don't apply much any more. Much nastier.

659 I think the most recent take on this is she claims she will speak in a committee situation, but not in a formal hearing. I suspect the "under oath" part is not too appetizing to her. Also, she is claiming to be getting death threats. That's curious since no one has been able to reach her.

660 So in Google News:

The new work that Google has done for the Chinese Government is nearing completion!

The new Chinese Google search engine is soon going on line. For the first time, every single search, website visited, every email sent and received, will be captured and TIED TO YOUR CELL PHONE NUMBER!


Of course, the government will use this information to decide if you are worthy of credit, boarding a plane or train, or right to buy basic goods and services.


Google is the same company that has backed out of a contract with the Department of Defense for cloud computer services, worth millions.

Now go watch that 2016 Google employee video and wonder what the average Google employee thinks about America, it's history, it's Constitution.

Yeah, I get the same feeling.

New York Times to Issue Correction After Mistaking Academy Award Nominated Actress Angela Basset for... Omarosa

By the way, did Angela Basset get nominated for an Oscar? I don't know. I assume she must have, at some point. Makes for a better headline-- so I guess, like the media, I don't care if it's true or not.

Since we're now on the subject of movies....

Last night I finally watched Solo (bittorrent, fuck you, Hollywood). Thoroughly forgettable flick, but not nearly as bad as I thought it'd be. Don't get me wrong, it's still bad, just not Attack of the Clones bad.

The thing I wanted to ask is, did anyone else get the feeling that they cribbed a bunch of scenes from Firefly? Because I've got visions of The Train Job, the Battle of Serenity Valley and the slave camp on Canton at the very least.

My guess is she was passed around by producers quite a bit until she matured yeah. For a while she was in everything, despite having no real acting talent. There were a bunch of girls like that at the time, whats her face Fairuza Balk was another. No real talent but young and apparently willing.

236 A true story, tying together the themes of high school misadventures and kissing and what not.

Best friend, his brother, one other guy, and I head to the Sunday night teen dance at a nearby club.

Best friends brother meets a young lady from a nearby high school. She had been drinking. A lot. We hadn't. The two of them disappear fora while.

Fast forward to a coffee shop several hours later. "Hey <redacted>, how'd it go with <redacted>?"

"Well, here's how it went. We drove off and parked. one thing lead to another and we're in the back seat undressed. and then, it hit me - I can't do this. she's asking me to, and I just can't. So I say no, and I start to get dressed. And that's when the cop cars lights went on . . "

So we laughed and laughed as he recounted how he got to explain all of that to the sheriff. many years later, we still remind him that no good deed goes unpunished.
