Moaning and Complaining Thread

I forgot how much I liked complaining about minor things that are barely worth mentioning, let alone having an emotional reaction to.

I know the last post is about this, but it's kind of specific to WhiteWalkers, so how about a thread about anything -- the more minor the better -- that annoys you?

Oh, as I need some content (I guess) here's an article about the sin of Mansplaining.

One thing I say nowadays is "Don't explain it to me -- mansplain it to me."

20 Here's a thing I hate that happens. Sometimes it happens to me, sometimes I see it happen to other people.

So like you're telling some story. It doesn't grab anyone. Most people stop making eye contact with you and start looking at other people, hoping someone will say something more interesting.

But you're kind of now committed to this story. You don't want to finish it, but you'd feel pretty stupid if you just trailed off and stopped speaking mid-sentence.

So you kind of just mumble out a few random bits from the end and say something (which no one is listening to) in summary like "So anyway it was a real situation," to pretend as if you'd finished and it had all gone well.

Sometimes I see this happen to other people and I do try to look into their eyes and pretend I've been listening. Just because I know, it kind of sucks.

21 I have another city one. Women spit all the time in the city. It's mostly a minority thing, but rules have exceptions. This is a particularly prevalent in Chinatown... I'm not squeamish, but it's disgusting. You are already dodging piles of dog shit on any Manhattan street...add to that the odd hock.

Yes...yes...someone is going to make a sophomoric reference to spitting and swallowing. Which, honestly, I look forward to...

hah. I hate these people. There's not really much you can do, either. Ultimately you have to illegally pass them and then illegally run the red light.

You can't get out of the car to explain it to them because this tends to happen at night and nothing good can come from getting out of your car to approach a stranger's car at midnight.

53 My roommate is great but, he doesn't' shower every day. He works 3-4 nights devlivering Italian food and has to clean up in the kitchen. Hair absorbs smells and he stinks when he comes home.

Luckily he usually goes up to his room because its usually after midnight and I only see him for a few minutes. I slept on second floor & he's on third.
I've tried for three years to explain the difference between work clothes, home clothes and going out clothes. I wear only garden clothes out in the garden and put then directly in the washer as soon as I come in the house. I would never go out seen in public in them. I think I am in the minority in this regard because i see people looking worse in public places that what I would wear in my garden.
I'm little and I can't stand when really fat people expose all the layers of fat. My mother was very heavy most of her life and would only wear clothes that hid how heavy she was.
Now they wear clothes so tight it kills my fragile appetite.

WhiteWomanWalking: A New Source of National Racism

Yeah, so this black guy is complaining that white women do not move out of his way when he's walking (actually, he specifies that he thinks that correct walking etiquette is for both parties to slightly deviate out of each other's way), and the New York Times thinks this is proof that most white women in New York City are racist.

Well, most progressives are racist, more racist than almost anybody, but put that off for now.

Back in college, a friend of mine, who was a giant, and I don't mean fat, I mean over six and a half feet tall of threatening muscle and bone, was always complaining that girls just did not bother to get out of his way at all. He was always the one who'd have to change course. He was annoyed, not just at the discourtesy (I imagine he'd agree with with the "we should both move a half step out of each other's way" rule), but because, as he would say -- being a giant and all -- "What do these 90 pound girls think would happen if I just plowed forth like they do? Who do they imagine would end up on the ground in such a collision?"

I've been noticing this a lot myself lately, and just said to myself -- well, thought to myself, but thought it so hard that it was pre-verbal, ready to be spoken aloud -- "Am I the only person who adjusts his path to avoid collisions with people walking the other way now?"

I did get annoyed at frequently having to make adjustments to avoid collisions that, as far as I could tell, no one else on the street seemed to have much concern about.

And I remembered my friend's 20+ year old complaint.

I'm not sure if the Walking Offenders were mostly women or white. Well, I know they weren't mostly white. Mostly they were Hispanic (just the neighborhood I was in when I noticed it-- not saying all hispanics do this. Just on this day, at this hour.)

Anyway, based on my limited experience:

Yeah, girls in particular seem to not really care about the whole "Colliding bodies" thing when walking down the street. Maybe it's just that men naturally get out of the way, and so they've tended to not even notice the need for small deviations in course.

And maybe men are just better about this whole "we both yield" thing because we know, if someone does not yield, men tend to take that as a challenge -- I own you; I dominate you; what are you gonna do about it, bitch, and wut dat mouth for? -- and we guys know that that sort of thing can quickly escalate in confrontation we probably weren't particularly looking for.

But it doesn't seem to be a racial thing. I'm white, and a lot of nonwhite people seem to be determined to walk a straight line whether someone's on the exact same straight line or not.

It is annoying, thought. And I, much like my giant of a college pal, did begin wondering: Maybe I should just lay down a marker here and walk right on through these other people, these non-yielders.

But anyway, just thought you should know, in addition to Mansplaining, we now have to worry about Whitewomanwalking.

BTW, one day in college, my giant friend was a bit lit up, and two guys --smaller than him, as most men are -- were doing the same no-polite-yielding thing, so out of nowhere, as they approached their inevitable collision, he did not merely permit the collision to go ahead as scheduled, but actually cocked back his hip and shoulder and delivered a full-body, full-strength, head-on body-check to one of the guys, center chest, while, just to make sure the guy knew it was completely intentional, exclaiming "BOOM!"

The guy went fucking flying with this grinning giant yelling "BOOM!" as he spun around the sidewalk and then flopped on to his ass.

My giant friend just said something like "I want to do that literally every single day."

Anyway, people should probably have a better sense of their surroundings and greater politeness in pedestrian yielding because my large friend is still out there and probably delivering the occasional painful shock of Street Decorum to people who annoy him.

14 Observation:

Men move for women because a) it's a courtesy to women and b) in today's culture, especially on college campuses, not moving would probably get you hauled in front of a sexual assault committee.

(FWIW, I'm overweight, but carry it well enough that I can slide though a crowd for the most part. So I don't mind that others don't move, I'm usually weaving through a crowd faster than the crowd as a whole is moving because I want the fuck out of the crowd.)

30 From the other post
I canceled my Netflix subscription this week.

They barely had any movies I wanted to see (especially a back catalogue of old movies).

There is a new Castlevania series that they are sponsoring. I watched about 5 minutes of the first episode. Of course now Dracula is an enlightened man of science who is holed up in his castle as a refuge from the ignorant Christian peasants who are being lied to by the local bishop.

Sometimes this is an OK story line (like in Fullmetal Alchemist where the priest is a little more cultish), but I don't have time for modern storylines where the former bad guy is secretly good. It's possible the plot develops and Dracula really is a deceiver, but I doubt the show has that waiting in the wings and I'm not giving it a chance.

Account deleted.

It's fucking stupid, Drakula unleashes the creatures of the night on Humans because he is a man of Science, What? How can you have Evil Creatures and not good ones. They did have a priest bless holy water and it worked.
and it took a WOMAN to get Drakula to come of his castle.

60 I'm also a good bit taller and heftier than most, and when this was combined with my standard walking around with my head in the clouds frame of mind, it would result in me walking into people a lot. My wife finally got me trained to stop and let other people (meaning her) go first if we were both heading for the same place at the same time, so now I make a conscious effort, and I've gotten much better.

I tried to explain to her "look at these bruises, I walk into furniture and doors all the time too" (I"m a poor judge of the space I will fit through) but that didn't seem to make much difference to her.

Most of the time in grocery stores people tend to follow the path of allowing room for carts to pass by them if they stopped or you can have proper traffic flow. And when someone realizes that they are blocking you from getting by they apologize.

About the only time I deal with a hold up is when you are waiting for them to get out of the way so you can get what you want from the same spot they are, like in the dairy area.

Most men have longer legs than women, or at least a longer stride. Men have always had to shorten their stride to walk alongside most women. Why won't they overtake them walking down the street? Two steps to my three or four steps is definitely going to cover more ground and I am going to "be in the way".

The chancellor of California’s community college system said he wants to abolish the college algebra requirement and called it a “civil rights issue” in a Wednesday interview.

Eloy Ortiz Oakley, chancellor of California Community Colleges, made the argument while speaking with NPR. He pegged algebraas overly burdensome due to the disproportionate rate at which it prevents students from graduating from community colleges; nearly 50 percent of community college students do not complete their math requirement.

“This is a civil rights issue, but this is also something that plagues all Americans — particularly low-income Americans,” said Oakley. “If you think about all the underemployed or unemployed Americans in this country who cannot connect to a job in this economy — which is unforgiving of those students who don’t have a credential — the biggest barrier for them is this algebra requirement. It’s what has kept them from achieving a credential.”

84 Read somewhere some time back the the way to overcome this problem is by focusing one's gaze over the shoulder of the person in your path, in the distance. This sends the signal to the other pedestrian of what your intended path is, and unless they are trying to collide with you they will adjust their path. Been doing this ever since, and rarely do I have to physically move over to make way for someone any more. I suspect your big friend is giving off uncertain signals, but receives the clear ones from others, so he subconsciously always yields right of way.

I'm 6' 3" and particularly back then was often told my resting face looked either serious or angry.

Anyway I became aware after awhile that I was making it to class earlier than normal, on a consistent basis.

And then I realized that no matter where I walked, the crowd was opening before me.

I think I did plenty of polite avoiding when walking through crowds, but my change of appearance meant I didn't have too, so I zoomed on through.

Got in line for tickets and they had a brand new No Dogs sign. So I did what any moron would do, tossed on my sunglasses and shortened the dog leash and pretended he was a guide dog.

Everywhere I walked it was like the Red Sea parting. There was even a crowd at the jousting event and, get this, people got out of the way and let me walk right to the front row. I felt like saying, helloooo I'm blind but I wanted to watch the jousting.

Pro-tip, if you try this don't use an overly friendly Golden. Damn dog kept trying to blow my cover by zig zagging around to meet everyone.

It's so obvious. White liberals have been berated by blacks for YEARS for "reacting" when they see a black man. So, now they go to great effort to NOT react. Yet suddenly -- that's the new form of racism, not reacting!

Not kidding, I've noticed this when I've gone to Whole Foods.

If you want to assert your territorial imperative just stop and stand in place looking in detached contemplation as if you are trying to remember something. Then people will walk around you. It takes longer to get where you want to go but if you have the time it gives you some feeling of control on occasion. I especially like to do it to people who are yapping away on their cell phone.

There are lots of electrical and what not doo-dads sticking out from the wall in the passageways below decks, and I always caught one when I tried to move for someone. This went on for about a month on my first ship. After one particularly bad bruise, I said screw it, and just plowed through people. That was my policy for the next 16 years.

Quickest way to get from point A to B was to be on my six as I walked there.

I have maintained this policy post retirement. I am triple the mass of most women, so if they want to try me, they can bounce off like everyone else does.

135 I'm a large mammal. I try to be accommodating and adjust for people but some days I don't feel like being the one that moves.

Results vary. Not too many collisions, though. I don't body check people but I have permitted people to bounce off me.

If I'm dressed 'nicely', there are the usual confusions and apologies.

But if I'm in a bad mood and wearing black, most people get out of my way. Might be a size/attitude thing.

137 I'm a white woman and I complain in my head all the time that I'm always the one who seems to have to move out of others' way.

I think it can be explained two ways.

One is it's a self centered asshole thing. Most people are totally oblivious and self oriented, so they simply don't notice their surroundings and yes if you didn't move you both would collide.

Second may be an innate social instinct thing, the things rad fems and leftists in general deny exist. Ninety pound girls think a six foot seven gentleman should move for her because she's a lady.

Even though most girls don't act like ladies and most men don't act like gentlemen nowadays. Nevertheless those instincts prevail when someone is on autopilot--as the oblivious often are.

150 Try walking behind 5 Asian girls that are arm in arm, taking up the whole sidewalk.

Has anyone else noticed Asian girls scooting through doors without touching them to keep them open? Or touching the door, but not pushing on it at all?

So what I'd call normal behavior is this as you're walking through a self closing door. Either you've opened it yourself or it was already open when you got there. You push the door as you're walking through so the door remains open as you go. If there is a person a couple steps behind you, you pause while holding the door, then continue walking as they reach out their hand to keep the door open.

The abnormal, irritating behavior is rather than making a minimal effort to keep the door open for the person behind you, you force them to open it themselves.

maybe it's just that some people detect the collision faster and avoid it faster, so that the other party -- the Assholes, let's call them - never feel the need to do so.

But to me, this is a situation where you do a reciprocal adjustment, just to show courtesy, even if it's no longer really necessary.

Or you give a nod or signal, like when someone lets you merge in traffic.

Most of the time in grocery stores people tend to follow the path of allowing room for carts to pass by them if they stopped or you can have proper traffic flow. And when someone realizes that they are blocking you from getting by they apologize.

About the only time I deal with a hold up is when you are waiting for them to get out of the way so you can get what you want from the same spot they are, like in the dairy area.

When I moved to TX a couple of years ago, I was surprised to find that this isn't true here. REALLY surprised, because in damn near every other area, Texans generally have their shit together, especially compared to the nimrods I was used to from SoCal.

I dunno if it's just the folks in this town or if it's a general thing, but I can just look at someone at the far end of the aisle at HEB and I know for a fact that they're going to stop their cart exactly opposite the old lady looking at soup, preventing anyone from passing. And the more people in the aisle, the more likely that they'll stop in the worst possible place.

174 I, much like my giant of a college pal, did begin wondering: Maybe I should just lay down a marker here and walk right on through these other people, these non-yielders.

I've done it to people who have their cell phone in front of their face and are completely oblivious to the fact they're walking down the middle of a hallway forcing others to jump out of their way.

On two occasions I've pulled out my own cell and intentionally shoulder checked the person, pretending to be as engrossed in my phone as they were. I'm 6'5, 230, so I'm not the one that gets knocked down.

I went skiing in Innsbruck once, long ago, and the Europeans had the worst manners. None of them would wait in any lines (not that they even had many, just pools of people jostling to get in front). The Americans were aghast at the barbaric nature of the Eurotrash. The Euros would even try to get ahead of you in a single line! It was pretty unreal. ANd the Eurotrash used to like to step on people's skis, which sent most of the Americans into a real tither - and rightly so - you DO NOT step on someone else's skis! At night, we Americans used to laugh about how uncouth the Europeans were and how they tried to call us ill-mannered.

1. They're used to be deferred to, whereas another man will appreciate the possibility that the other guy might not yield all of the necessary space; and

2. A lot of women drift through space HUA (head up ass). For example, how many women will stop at a red light and unnecessarily hug the curb, so that no one can get past them to make a right turn? They apparently have never thought of that possibility. That, right there, is being HUA.

So, I legitimately get anxious whenever I'm walking behind a woman. I tend to walk faster than most, so I always have this fear that if they see me out of the corner of their eye that they'll think I'm following them. It's worse when it's not a well lit area or at night. I usually default to trying not to walk right behind them so they can see me coming from as far as possible and to pass quickly without making eye contact.

A lot of this is because the courts have come down with the opinion that pedestrians can never be at fault on the street. Even if a pedestrian jumps in front of a moving car, it's generally the car's fault.

Our courts have no concept of manners or common sense. And now my state has gone totally apeshit putting crosswalk signs up everywhere, so they don't have to put a light in but all cars must yield to all pedestrians, whenever the pedestrian decides to mosey across the street. Lots of these crosswalks are within 50 feet of an actual corner light. And these crosswalks are hazards. You can't see anything at night and the pedestrians just jump right out into the street ... because "it's their RIGHT!!!"

241 Here's a big factor no one has mentioned: Football.

I was friends with someone long ago. We hung out. Different genders. Won't say which one was me.

When we hung out in crowded areas, the male friend had this uncanny skill of just slipping through the crowd untouched, while the female friend had to constantly stop and let others pass and get bumped and say excuse me and so on, such that it took her twice as long to cross a crowded platform than it took him.

So after a while she asked him how in the world he had this amazing skill of always being able to see the "gaps" in the crowd that were just opening up, and then slipping through them untouched?

He replied: "I think it comes from boys learning football as youngsters. One of the primary skills as a ball carrier is being able to "read" the defense and how the bodies are moving in a play, and being able to predict a split-second ahead of time where a gap in the bodies would open up, and to dart through that gap before anyone even knew there was a gap. Boys just learn this on the playground daily, and after a while it becomes instinctual. Girls don't learn this skill, so for them, navigating crowds is stressful and difficult."

What does the horde think? Is this theory correct?

Two classics:

People in Boston seemed especially prone to doing the above, again especially women. One of them did that to me, cutting it close enough to bump into my shopping bag. Little did she realize that that bag held a recently purchased 14-inch crescent wrench.

282 When I am approaching a pedestrian coming from the other direction in a narrow venue. I usually employ a two-step process. First I signal a willingness to accommodate, by a slight change of course or perhaps turning shoulders slightly to present a narrower front. If they acknowledge that signal we pass uneventfully. If not, the second step is to stop dead in my tracks but hold my ground, thus creating a choice for the oncoming walker. They can alter course and miss, or they can bump into me, thus becoming the offender. (I am 6'2" and 240#, which may influence their decision-making.)

284 There's also an etiquette about physical contact in crowds -- putting hands on someone and lightly *guiding* them to a slightly different position is okay, but barging through, or roughly moving them, can pick a fight.

In fact, even the guiding thing can start a fight, but sometimes, you just gotta move a motherfucker a little bit.

311 What a truly great friend.

I walk with two wooden canes. (very stylish, graceful, unobtrusive, heavy, with handles carved to fit right and left hands.) People of all stripes and ages, religions, and sex, kindly move out of my path. W-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-y out of my path. (They also open doors, split a crowd, pick up things for me that I drop, all the rest, but that is irrelevant to this walking complaint. They even say, "Keep it up, Sir. They even jump ahead of me to open doors. It's a beautiful thing to behold.) But I have also noticed, I must, that men are more situationally aware, in the general sense. I see ahead of me young men pulling their female companions closer to them without saying anything and the females catching on to what's happening. These are generalizations. Each day provides exceptions. Since forfeiting mobility I notice people hold open elevator doors where they hustle on previously. And young people are especially beautiful.

I just now got my driver's license renewed. They prioritized me unexpectedly. I was in and out of the place with a new license within four minutes flat. Everyone participated to make it easy for me.

This concludes my walking observations.

316 Castlevania's story has always been pretty wonky. I mean, ignore even the dumbest obvious Mary Sue parts - Dracula can only be beaten for good by having Japanese people seal his castle in the moon!...wait what?? But just the basics - it starts out with very little plot for Dracula - basically just, he's a vampire, he's evil, Belmont family is tasked to kill him every century, and scene.

Then they added a tiny bit of human motivation with Alucard - his mother Lisa was apparently an erstwhile fling for Drac, she gets killed for being suspected of witchcraft, Drac re-ignites his hatred of humanity. But then they just completely aped the Coppola movie when they rebooted the origin in the early 00's - Dracula is mad at God because his wife dies, wants immortality to...teach God a lesson, I guess, but betrays his best friend in order to get the phylactery he needs to become a vampire because hey, I'm sure he'll let bygones be bygones.

Eh, I'll still watch the Netflix show because I'm a mark...but I won't pay for it.

331 As a New Yorker I completely get this, but there are two classes of sidewalk driver that bother me even more:

1. The Phone Zombie. They never look up, they never manage for impending collision, and luckily, they wander into traffic more and more these days. Put the phone down sparky, you're too stupid to do more than one thing at a time, and you're already walking.

2. The Oblivious Weaver. I walk 110% the speed of everyone else. Call me an dick if you like but I don't like to waste time getting there when I can be there already. The oblivious weaver will walk 60% the speed of everyone else, in a position designed to take up 100% of the available space. They tend to let their direction shift back and forth at something less than a direct angle, and change back to the other direction when it looks like they might leave some space for people to get past them.

Tourists are often guilty of this in New York (though never Japanese tourists for some reason), but you almost can't blame them. The ones that anger me more are the obvious residents who should know better. And the very worst are the ones who walk in groups, forming a line across the whole sidewalk so no one else can get by in either direction. This would be fine if they'd just show a little common courtesy. But in the village where I live, they never do.

=============

I think it's correct. But I think women can just as well learn to read body language and anticipate which direction another body is heading and thus avoid collision.

Having said that, I think women are naturally designed and reticent to bump into strangers and so they avoid the risk, either to not appear rude or to avoid injury.

I am not above stopping in my tracks and taking the charge if a group is filling the whole sidewalk.
My main issue is crowds... farmers markets, football games, state fairs. I need a wide gap between people heading in the same direction as me if I want to pass them. I can elbow them aside, or yell gangway, or wait for the gap to open, but people invariably pass me for the "open gap" they fit in that I do not.
Also people who bring side by side baby walkers to the farmers markets as grocery carts should be beaten with sacks of potatoes.

357 Had this happen ten years ago at an old job. Scene: Bunch of temps brought in for a project in a fulfillment office. I'm not one of them. I and several other guys actually on the payroll are doing the main work. Often this includes pushing a cart laden with a large amount of circulars, pamphlets, forms, and other paper products of deceptively large total weight. This cart must pass through a specific space to get from the stock shelves to the station where the items are packaged for shipping.

Naturally, some of these temps insist on gathering in that path, chatting and being completely useless.

They were warned to get out of the way when folks were working. Usually a brief verbal reminder was sufficient to clear a hole.

One day, it wasn't. Physics ensued.

The offended offenders glared and complained, but my boss backed me up. They had, after all, been warned repeatedly and been given a warning shout to clear out...

Those and the rest of the temps were chucked out later after a different incident. Just don't make 'em like they used to, I guess.

367 When you find a seemingly abandoned grocery cart in the middle of the aisle, or blocking your exit from said aisle, it absolutely will be a man's cart. Men leave the cart in a stationary position, go hunt down items, and bring them back to the cart. They do NOT stay with their cart. Worst day to shop: Super Bowl Sunday, before the game, when all the men are there.

I'm not saying women don't block the aisles. They do, but they'll be right there with the cart, oblivious, with their back to it as they try to select which chicken package from the other 38 packages of chicken they want to buy.

One day having had enough, I just stopped when women approached me without being aware. They bounced off and then apologized. So now, I simply stop and await the collision. Most of the time this occurs at malls and retail outlets, as I no longer live in a big city. {I now do this to men, too, those unaware.}

The worst thing is people who stop in doorways to have a conversation. They are the ultimate self-absorbed. This group used to be mostly women, but as men have become more feminized I see this behavior in men now, too.

374 Yeah, girls in particular seem to not really care about the whole "Colliding bodies" thing when walking down the street. Maybe it's just that men naturally get out of the way, and so they've tended to not even notice the need for small deviations in course.

Maybe it's because if you knock a woman on her ass, even accidentally, everybody in the area is going to assume it's your fault. Her boyfriend/husband will feel honor bound to kick your ass, and you may be arrested.

This reminds me of the experiment where if a couple is arguing and the woman assaults the man that makes the bystanders laugh, but if the man assaults the woman at exactly the same level people are willing to intervene.

You know it could have some merit as well. Not necessarily the "Played football" part, but the difference between men and women's brains. Because aren't guys supposed to have better spatial awareness than women, which is why they tended to be the hunters. So maybe some of that spatial awareness is coming into play to be watching and knowing when to stop or move through a crowd.

Sandra Bulloch used to have/may still have a place on Tybee Island here.


A friend of ours was in a bar where she and some girlfriends were partying, and as she walked to the ladies room, he got a shoulder full of her butt, which he totally enjoyed.

397 Right Turn Blockers, Noooo!!


I think the problem there is that most women have lousy spatial skills. This would account for the map reading and parallel parking problems. In the right turn context, I think that they have trouble judging how far they are from the car on their left, and so hug the curb to ensure they left enough room.

The bad part is when they're in an oncoming car in a residential area, when they tend drive down the middle of the road, because they can't tell how far they are from parked cars. Which, of course, is stupid, because if you're going to hit something, hit it a velocity V instead of velocity 2V.

Being aware of other people, and being courteous, are good things. And sometimes people who are rude and oblivious find out why we have etiquettes that keep us from running into each other.

400 337 I have been on the side of an aisle at the grocery store perusing items and have actually had people step in front of me. I mean, directly in front of me as if I was invisible. My line "Oh, I am sorry, am I in your way?". Some get it and some don't.

Sitting in a neighborhood restaurant one evening and the couple with their uncontrolled 5 year old were behind us in a booth. Little brat flopping around, whining and all things annoying. A local popo walks in the door and the parents tell their little starfish "if you don't behave he'll take you to jail".

I snapped. Got up and stood over their table and told them they were the problem with their child's behavior and the policeman did not deserve to be involved in their problem. I picked up my food and as I was moving into the bar I heard the applause behind me.

426 Happens all the time to me, here on the fringes of Diverse City.

I have always moved aside, it's good manners. But I have noticed that, as I've gotten older, a certain class of younger women will put that damnable challenging look in their eyes, and not move. Well, that's especially at the local mall, which I barely frequent anymore. I have been known to stop in my tracks, and just look at them with a tight smile on my face. They move.

The thing that really gets me is the retards that have the headlights on their cars aimed too high. Sheesh. Blinded, whether they're oncoming or behind me. I used to move my side mirror to shine the light right back at them (because they are tailgating, too) and "voila!" They back off. Nowadays, I usually just pull off the road and let them pass. I very very much want to shine my brights on them, but then, I don't want to be shot.

We were walking down the street. Guy is walking towards us, some rando, but he's got a big old pony tail and he's wearing (seriously) leather pants, matching leather vest, matching leather suit jacket, and like alligator boots that weren't a direct match but complimented the rest of the leather.

Without warning, without giving me a head's up, he SEIZES the guy by the shoulders as we pass, shakes him enthusiastically, and shouts "DUDE, I HAVE ALL OF YOUR ALBUMS! YOU'RE A *GOD* TO ME!!!"

Then he sort of tosses him aside and walks on as if none of it had happened.

Six steps later, as the guys is wondering what the hell just happened, my friend just gave me a sidelong look and grinned.

truck even if they have the green light, if they know what's good for them anyway.

473 I used to get a little wound up if someone was running to the elevator and I caught the door to open it for them and then they stood in the front and watched someone else run to the elevator and let it just shut in their face. What a dick move. I felt like just pushing them into the closed door.

477 I don't mind the "walking on the sidewalk" stuff too much but people at the supermarket just annoy the living shit out of me.

They park their carts on one side of the aisle and then stand next to it (thereby completely blocking the aisle) while taking forever to read the tiny little print on the package they usually decide not to buy after all.

Or they bend over to peer at something on a lower shelf, thereby shoving their ass so far out that it's impossible to pass them.

Or they bring their friends/girlfriends/kids along and sllllloooowwwwly move through the store, blocking the aisles as they go.

My wife won't even go to the store any more because people don't respect personal space. They come right up behind her and reach past her to get the thing they want. No "excuse me", either.

So I shop at 6am or whenever the store opens. Get in, use the shopping list, and get out as fast as possible.

People! <insert disgusted tone of voice here>

Dad said nothing but tapped out another one. The guy took it, stashed it and said. "Can I have the pack?" My dad said "go get a fucking job." Then he said to me. "See, you give someone something for nothing and they'll never appreciate it. They'll just want more."

578 Muldoon channeling some Steven Wright there with the elevator thing. Excellent.

Haven't been approached by a panhandler for some time, last time I recall it was at a gas station, when I was filling up. Now that's a very, very poor move - approaching a "captive" person like that.

So I was very aggressive and nasty and clearly scared the f**k out of the panhandler, who hurried away.

Guilt level: zero.

582 Pet peeve when I lived in NJ. At rush hour there was always the A-type asshole in the BMW or Mercedes who drove along the shoulder as far as he could and would cut somebody off to get back into the lane.

For some reason I didn't see a lot of the rude freeway behavior in Southern California that I did in Jersey. I guess fear of getting shot by a gang member instills some courtesy.

Posted by: kbdabear at July 21, 2017 06:22 PM (3i2nH)

583 This issue parallels the guy that cruises down the lane that closes and then wants to merge at the last second.

When some self-important f*ckwad that believes his time is more important than mine attempts to merge in front of me, I stay a foot from the bumper of the car I'm behind and continue forward fully intent on wrecking my car if the individual attempts to wedge in.

Too date, the individuals have wound up surrendering in that game of chicken, but the day they clip me, not only will they receive dents on their car, but in their face as well.

I saw a guy like that in the Montego Bay airport.

Old guy, gray hair, ponytail, dressed in what is apparently the rock star or rock star-marque uniform of leather pants, etc, etc. standing around, sort of posed to look cool.

But, for the life of me, I couldn't come up with who he might be, so I was considering doing that very thing of walking up and acting like I knew who he was and was a fan....and seeing what happened.

The lovely and sensible Mrs naturalfake who was with me at the time, talked me out of it.

And woe unto the people
for their sins are manifest.
Their transgressions are many
and shall be repaid ten fold in sorrow.
For the press secretary of the Lord shall be sent
and they shall badger him
and berate him.
Their questions shall be idiotic
making all dumber
And the points shall not be given.
Souls shall cry for mercy
but it shall fall not as a gentle rain
to the place beneath.

71 I missed the previous thread on this, so I don't know if any theories came out as to the true reason, so here's mine:

Its not that Scaramucci doesn't have experience is the reason Spicer resigned. More likely its that Spicer was enjoying doing the Communications Director Job more than Press Secretary and he was hoping Trump would name him to that position full time. So that didn't happen and Spicer decided he didn't want to go back to being Press Secretary only.

75 "But it looks like it's just going to be nothing stories like this today."

The loudly touted "unified front" in the Arab Muslim crescent, orchestrated by the Saudis, to isolate and pressure Qatar over the issue of terror financing, is now apparently collapsing.

The reasons for which aren't clear yet and may not ever become satisfactorily clear.

I posit that Qatari intelligence has the goods on terror financing by other states in the region and has made their possession of said embarrassing intel quietly known. Or, it may just be another classic Middle Eastern Arab mess, the chaotic Damascus scene from the end of _Lawrence of Arabia_ repeating itself yet again in endless sequence.

Since the U.S. snooze media don't really like discussing the links (financial or otherwise) between Arabs, Islam, and terror, hey, bring on the Friday afternoon man-bites-dog stories.

Maybe some guy in Florida did something bizarre in a Wal-Mart. Yeah, that's the ticket. Go with it.

question about the show's possible appeal to the "Alt-Right."

What people need to recognize is, and it makes me really want to get
into the show: The sh-- is alive and real today. I think people have got
to stop pretending that slavery was something that happened and went
away.
The sh-- is affecting people in the present day. And it's easy for
folks to hide from it, because sometimes you're not able to map it out,
especially with how insidious racism has become. But everyone knows
that with Trump coming into power, a bunch of sh-- that had always been
there got resurfaced. So the idea that this would be pornography goes
back to people imagining whips and plantations. What they need to be
imagining is how f'd up things are today, and a story that allows us
to now dramatize it in a more tangible matter.

228 What I don't get is Rod Rosenstein, who Sessions picked to be his #2. Sessions had to know that he might be forced to recuse himself, so that it would then be Rosenstein's call whether to pick a special counsel and who. Rosenstein did, and it was Mueller, friend of Comey.

Rosenstein also included language in Mueller's authorization that has arguably allowed Mueller to jump past having to investigate Russiagate and go right to trying to find an excuse to jail Trump or his relatives. (I was wrong on this in my comments from a few weeks ago).

It may also be that Mueller is picking up on stuff that Preet Bharra (a Schumer acolyte) had started against Trump before Trump fired him.

Are these cocksucker career prosecutors thick as thieves, or what?

You can't be too cynical these days. It was a certain tell when MSM praised Mueller as being above reproach, that he wasn't.

249 HBO is making a new show to inflame racial hatred, so we got that working for us.

"Confederate" is an alternate-history show where the South won the Civil War and Slavery as an institution survives today.

This sounds like more progtard nonsense to birth that race war which they always seem to be pushing for.

There's an easy way to tell exactly what is HBO's plan in all this-

If the Slaveholding South is run by Democrats, and the Free North/Antislavery people are all Republicans, then there's a slight possibility that this might be a legitimate creative endeavor.

Bu-u-u-u-u-ut, in their info on the show, the "Confederate" guys state that slavery is run by an EEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeviiiiilllllllllll!!!!!!!! Corporation.

Imagine that!


Plus, it allows them to take the spotlight off the real villains of American slavery, The Democrat Party.


I predict..........suckage.

And massive progtarded inflammation of racial hatred.

There are by reports active slave markets operating right now in the _souks_ of Tripoli. Returning to the traditional practices of old-time Libya. Someone could go there and buy a slave next week if they had the inclination to do so.

Say what you may about the nutty Colonel Gadhafi, he got rid of that disreputable trade. As for the slaves being thus bought and sold, they are overwhelmingly sub-Saharan black Africans.

Yeah, there are conflicting views on that tactic. It is a short term solution if other issues, like the parental debt, aren't addressed but *feels* like something is being done (and it isn't valueless on the individual level) Working with authorities to shut the traffickers down is also important for long-term improvement, but the authorities have to care (and be generally uncorrupt) for that to work. That often is grueling and heart breaking with very few "feelz" of the positive sort, but it isn't valueless either. Combining short and long term efforts effectively, and without resentment of those with a different focus, is an ongoing effort that will probably always have friction.

328 Spicer and his family should have some fun with the media.

(Call thepolice first)

Suddenly from inside the house, you hear screaming and yelling, doors slamming!!

Then, Gunshot noises, anguished cries,

SPLAT! Blood on a window!

Cops come screaming up in two or three squad cars!!!

Several minutes pass, with lights flashing, and no sound from the house.

Over the PA, Police Officer demands, "Sean, Come out Now!"

Door opens, Sean and his family come out laughing, and the police come up and shake their hands. They all look towards the cameras, and take a bow.

This is true, I was speaking of US/western world traffic earlier, but muslim trafficking is more likely to have a racial component. I'm guessing that black western women who convert aren't aware that Arabic doesn't distinguish between "black" and "slave". It's the same word.

Posted by: Polliwog the 'Ette at July 21, 2017 03:36 PM (rp9xB)

Sadly, WAY too many black women (and men, for that matter) have been convinced that Islam is part of their Natural African Heritage, and that what they call their "African Name" in the process of casting off their "Government Name" is really Arabic.

Way too ignorant. :/

387 I canceled my Netflix subscription this week.

They barely had any movies I wanted to see (especially a back catalogue of old movies).

There is a new Castlevania series that they are sponsoring. I watched about 5 minutes of the first episode. Of course now Dracula is an enlightened man of science who is holed up in his castle as a refuge from the ignorant Christian peasants who are being lied to by the local bishop.

Sometimes this is an OK story line (like in Fullmetal Alchemist where the priest is a little more cultish), but I don't have time for modern storylines where the former bad guy is secretly good. It's possible the plot develops and Dracula really is a deceiver, but I doubt the show has that waiting in the wings and I'm not giving it a chance.

This sounds like more progtard nonsense to birth that race war which they always seem to be pushing for.


Actually the progtards hate it, because slavery is triggering to black people. So this caused the producers to release a giant apology/explanation in which they say they're going to reveal on the show the slavery is run by Trump.

Actually any white SUV would suffice.

Have a neighbor mention that Sean is fleeing the country from Trump's wrath.

Fuck that POS with flaming a napalm soaked barbed wire wrapped baseball bat.

He was a major proponent of the "occupy" movement.

And now that M.W. bought out Jos.A.Banks, at least he's out on his ass as a result, and is no longer the President or C.E.O. of either operation.

Which is nice, 'cause we don't have to suffer through listening to his smug B.S. schtick puking forth from our speakers.

The husband says "Hard to believe, but I think the preacher must have taken it!" They decide not to say anything to the preacher.

A year later, they have the preacher over for dinner again, and after dinner they say to the preacher, "When you came to dinner last year, we noticed afterwards we were missing a silver spoon. Do you have any idea how that could have happened?"

The preacher says,"Why yes, yes I do, I put that silver spoon in your Bible!"

566 387 I canceled my Netflix subscription this week.

They barely had any movies I wanted to see (especially a back catalogue of old movies).

There is a new Castlevania series that they are sponsoring. I watched about 5 minutes of the first episode. Of course now Dracula is an enlightened man of science who is holed up in his castle as a refuge from the ignorant Christian peasants who are being lied to by the local bishop.

Sometimes this is an OK story line (like in Fullmetal Alchemist where the priest is a little more cultish), but I don't have time for modern storylines where the former bad guy is secretly good. It's possible the plot develops and Dracula really is a deceiver, but I doubt the show has that waiting in the wings and I'm not giving it a chance.

Account deleted.

and it took a WOMAN to get Drakula to come of his castle.

Free speech is no longer part of the American experience.

David Harsanyi writes at the Federalist that the right to free speech is indeed endangered. And this isn't just a rhetorical claim; the right to free speech is really, genuinely likely to be eroded into a dead letter within 5 to 10 years.

College Republicans' speaker can come on requested date, Cal says now

Update, 4:20 p.m. UC Berkeley has now said it will ensure that Ben Shapiro can speak on campus on Sept. 14, the date originally requested by the Berkeley College Republicans.

Here in rural east Tennessee we are being over run by new arrivals from the west coast as never before. In the last six weeks alone I have installed new fencing for 3 from Oregon, 3 from California, and 1 from Seattle, not to mention the usual halfbacks coming from Florida. Being in construction I talk to builders and the other trades daily and they report far more then just the ones I am aware of that need a fence in our small community. The ones I have worked for, to a person, all describe a political climate of taxation and regulation that had become unbearable...keep in mind this dosen`t mean they won`t come here and incrementally inflict the same bullshit (halfback is a term of endearment we use to describe northerners who move to Fla and then move half way back and land here)

75 Berkeley likely would have lost the lawsuit with the College Republicans. They have opened up a limited public forum by allowing people to speak on political topics, and having done so, they cannot ban speakers based on the content of their speech. The heckler's veto is not an excuse. Courts have repeatedly rejected it.

But the CRs lose on private school campuses, so the victory is limited.

85 In the 1960's, the liberals hailed free speech as one of the most important things ever. That's because they were on the outside, not in control of the media or colleges and etc., so their only hope was to appeal to the right to honor the First Amendment and let them spread their message.

Now that they have succeeded and have control of the media, colleges, etc. they want to cement their position and destroy the ladder they climbed to get there. Now free speech must be saddled with limits, and of course they get to decide what the limits are. (In other words, free speech will be over. Even in a dictatorship you have free speech to say approved things! In other words, freedom to say approved things is not free speech at all.)

So if Teen magazine wants to write articles about anal sex, that's acceptable free speech; but if a conservative wants to talk about the harm that Obamacare is doing, that might well be ruled "hate speech" and shut down.

I am deeply grateful that we got Trump. A few more Supreme Court justices being handed over to reliable liberals and the damage would have been unrecoverable. As it is I am hopeful that we can recover.

They played this game with Milo, attempting to price him out of being invited because the security cost was too high for the groups.

There's a way to reverse this and it involves slashing funding at the state level for these places. And that is just a start. Until that happens the vast majority of universities will continue down the path of hotbeds of insurrection and lefty politics.

106 The Saga:


The press room rejoices. Robed figures sway arm in arm, clashing goblets of fair trade herbal cleansing smoothies together as they chant the ancient paens to the press:

Charlie Brown football
Snoopy's plane
We will be
Trump's bane!
Go Media!

Others stick pins into voodoo dolls while others weep tears of joy. "We have got the beast's herald - next the beast!"

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

"You sure you can't stick around?"
"Not after this humiliation! I can communicate good!"
"Too bad, I always thought you would go far - your twitter account kept me in stitches."
"That was a parody! How many times do I have to say it wasn't me?"
"Well, anyway - too bad. Now scram."
"Wait - I have more recriminations - "
"Save them for your tell-all. I'll pick up a copy next time I'm in Border's."
"There's no...." Spicer stops as two secret agents put their hands on his shoulders and drag him out.
"Stiletto - you're the new communications director - who do you have in mind for press secretary?"
"Don't you worry boss, I got just the joe for this gig. He's a good loyal soldier - real smart and he won't take nothin' for any of those mooks. They cross him and *snick!* they'll be swimming in the Potomac."
"Sounds good, and I like his demo tape. Send him in to introduce himself."

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

Scarramucci enters the press room and begins yelling "Hey! Quiet down you mooks! Put out that fire! You damage this room and I swear I'll cut you!"
"You'll eject us? That hardly AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"
The reporter grabs his dripping side as Scaramucci pockets his switchblade. "I said I'll cut you and I mean it! Now listen up, it's a new day in the zoo and I got the perfect keep for you - Gorilla Pundit."
Gorilla Pundit steps up to the lectern and polishes his glasses. "Such a charming crowd. Now ask your questions and I shall endeavor to answer them. Treat me with respect and you shall receive the same."
"Now - yes you, the little fat guy with a scruffy beard."
"I'm from Vox and I think this is all bananas."
"Now that is disrespect. Disrespect - banana comments, monkey jokes, references to Tarzan must be punished."
Gorilla Pundit leaps off of the podium into the crowd of screaming reporters, his great arms sending them flying as his cries of battle ring out.

Trump turns off the monitor and says "I like this new guy, he's got moxie. I'll think he'll do well."

111 What I don't get is the fundamental misunderstanding that the justice system is there to protect everyone (or worse, that it no longer is, which seems more and more likely), and that for it to work both sides have to agree to the process.

The only other direction this goes is people forming some sort of masked and armed "equality" gangs to beat the sh*t out of the masked and armed people who want to try to limit their free speech rights.

Say, isn't threatening violence to deter someone from practicing a constitutional right a federal crime?

116 In the 1960's, the liberals hailed free speech as one of the most important things ever. That's because they were on the outside, not in control of the media or colleges and etc., so their only hope was to appeal to the right to honor the First Amendment and let them spread their message.

Hey (D)s, if there was something to get Trump on, don't you think Obama/Clinton would've already released it?

Mueller is going to try to go after Trump, and his inner ring too, on taxes. They will find something that is perfectly legal and approved by the IRS and claim TAX EVASION!!!!

139 Generally speaking I'm OK with a private institution, such as a business or even a college, denying anyone they don't like the right to speak in their "house". Their facilities, their rules. Douche move - but nobody is guaranteed free speech in a room privately owned by someone else.

UC Berkeley is a state institution, however. In this case, a state is abridging the free speech rights of a citizen. Which, in a saner, less stupid time would be a yuge no-no.

But it's 2017, a stupid time to be alive, and it's the People's Republic of Northwest Mexico, so the fascist brownshirts who evidently have veto power over everything that happens in that "school" get their way.

157 My take, from personal experiences with people I've known, and which may be complete horseshit, was that male homosexuality and female homosexuality were usually completely different things (with always some notable exceptions that don't fit the rule.)

From what I've seen, male gays generally adore women (especially their mothers) and strive to be women in every way possible. Lesbians, in my experience, generally hate men and strive to NOT be men in every way possible. (although since they also hate women who like men, they end up acting like really weird men anyways) But I do think a lot of the female homosexuality stems from early sexual abuse at the hands of some man - I've known of that happening way too many times. Men, on the other hand, don't become gay because of abuse; sadly, they usually become abusers themselves.

so that's my anecdotal take on the issue.

and I have known a couple of women who should have been born men. I can't explain it, but I've seen it, and I really always felt pretty sorry for them.

Yeah, the Left is actually doing it, but let me put it this way: In 1936, Germany sent a single battalion to re-militarize the Rhineland in violation of the Treaty of Versailles. France, which had the largest armored force in the world at the time, and could have crushed Germany, did fecking nothing. Then "reunification" (aka, the Austria coup), then Czechoslovakia, then even Poland. While 90% of the German army was in Poland, France did nothing except send a few artillery shells over, oh and there might have been a battalion-sized raid. B-effing-D.

I disagree. Endangered, sure. But likely to be eroded into a dead letter...no way.
The reason is at some point people will have had enough. Either the BLM/Antifa will try to spread their efforts too far into areas where they will get slapped down, or, the Universities, feeling the financial pain, will finally stand up to them.

All sin, pointed out to us by the Lord, has to do with wrong attitudes.

Rape
Murder
Deceit
Thievery
Apathy

Point out any place in Scripture, yes, including Sodom and Gomorrah, as covered elsewhere in the little-read book of Ezekiel, wherein people were judged for their sinfulness and we will always see hardness of heart, malice and misanthropy as the core of the issue, expressed in a repulsive variety of ways. Never do we see anyone specifically judged for homosexuality. o.o Not even Sodom and Gomorrah, according to the book of Ezekiel; no, the sins they were judged for were quite something else.

Who among us can point to a pair of lesbians and cite what the sin is? Who is being hurt? What is being stolen? Where is the apathy or malice that is always, always the cause of our Lord's righteous anger?

The only answer to this question is Romans 1:26's seeming prohibition, which brings us full circle and leaves us with the same question as before, or worse, if we perform honest, unbiased exegesis.

Speaking for myself, it seems readily apparent that there is no sin being committed by lesbians, and I, as a Christian, see no virtue (and indeed, much harm) in condemning them on the basis of a reverse-engineered church tradition. There is no discernible sin being committed by two women who decide they like each other enough to be in a relationship.

I also caution other Christians about condemning them, as there is a penalty to be paid by the faithful among us, as well, for burdening others unduly with laws that have their root in man's mind, not God's declaration.

183 I'm trying to explain what's going on to my 9 year old. Someone please correct me on any point so I don't get anything wrong.

1. Trump is an outsider, which is exactly what his voters (hereafter referred to as Citizens) wanted.

2. The insider/establishment Monoparty, made up of career Rs and Ds, the MSM, paid globalist thug drones and others behind the curtains, unelected and unknown, are attempting (and succeeding) in hamstringing Trump through various means.

3. The R's are the only ones Citizens can target so Citizens have these options:

a. Stay home, don't vote in Congressional elections. Ds liable to win seats and the impending collapse accelerates.

b. Keep voting R, resulting in the Rs making no change to what they're doing (not doing) now because why should they?

c. Vote for R primary challengers and hope they aren't quickly neutralized, assimilated or compromised (see Ryan, Paul).

d. Vote for some third party candidate (see Kang/Kodos).

e. Vote for Democrats expressly to accelerate the impending collapse.

In short, I see no hope for us, politically speaking. None. Powerless.

Have I missed any important points? I don't want to overstate the gravity of what we're facing but I don't want to downplay anything either.

220 The big problem with conservatives speaking at Cal Berkeley is that EVERY. SINGLE. LAW. ENFORCEMENT. AGENCY. in the loop with regard to the University and its immediate environs is unfit for purpose. They are all reporting to civilian superiors who are outright in league with the radical left.

UC has its own campus cops. At the top of whose chain of command is Big Sis Janet Napolitano, the bristling bulldyke formerly of Obama's DHS.

Berkeley's municipal police force ultimately reports to the Berkeley mayor and city council, who have friendly sit-down meals with antifa figures.

Berkeley is small enough that they have a dispatch-sharing mechanism with the police of neighboring Oakland. Oaktown's own PD have been in severe internal disarray for years, and their current chief is an import from Chicago, with all of the leftist attitudes that would imply. She reports to a thoroughly insane mayor even by Oakland's historical standards, which is really saying something.

BART has a station near the UC campus into which violence spills during demonstrations. The general manager of BART is the one who refuses to release security camera footage of "urban yoots" conducting mass muggings aboard BART's trains.

Alameda County's sheriff is overseen by the county Board of Stuporvisors, who are a pack of wretched amnesty shills that've urged his office not to cooperate with ICE.

And, finally, the California Highway Patrol has its officers' paychecks being signed off on by Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown, and a Brown acolyte in uniform in charge of the CHP.

Funny comment, sure, but it is an excellent example of a a knee-jerk mental defense mechanism.

Strongly held, yet largely inconsequential belief is challenged; unable to refute based on evidence, the individual in question resorts to passive-aggressive sarcasm and sets up a straw man which is altogether too tempting to set aflame.

You know quite well that there are multiple verses warning us against lust - yet we don't worry overmuch about a man lusting after his wife. Or maybe you do, and you're one of those types who tells others he is careful to not lust after his wife, even when having sex with her.

Hard to say, given such a puerile response to an honest question.

My kids went to public schools simply because they were better than the private choices. They graduated from Ivy League colleges and attended post graduate work in places like Oxford. I can tell you they are not even the slightest bit liberal, quite the opposite.

It's about what you teach your children as parents and consistent verifiable truths. It's about teaching them to think for themselves based on facts and existential truths. Most people don't want to do the hard work of being a parent. But I can assure you it pays dividends.

FWIW, the easiest rule of thumb is probably "if in doubt, don't." I can't think of any time I've felt the need to justify or rationalize when I was doing what I knew was right.

Of course, that doesn't allow for normalizing sin. Again, my sins are no better or worse than the normal guys looking for bathroom marriages, but I also don't insist that my private sins are something you need to accept as normal to make me feel better about my private choices, either.

250 You know quite well that there are multiple verses warning us against lust - yet we don't worry overmuch about a man lusting after his wife. Or maybe you do, and you're one of those types who tells others he is careful to not lust after his wife, even when having sex with her.

Hard to say, given such a puerile response to an honest question.

Seems to me that *you* are picking that one verse and reading into
it what *you* want to be there. How about you go and spend time asking
the author?

As I replied in the previous thread,



Ah, I see you quote the verse. Seems to me that you are doing what you accuse others of and bringing what you want to the verse.



Posted by: Polliwog the 'Ette July 21, 2017 02:06 PM (rp9xB)


I
accuse no one of anything. I, myself, was in the same line of thinking
til this past year. It is noteworthy that, out of a pretty diplomatic
post, we accelerate right to the word accusation. I counsel prayer, and study - no, not the kind where we read the Scripture, nod, and say, that's what it says - I mean actually study, consider, work on it.


Did
you write your reply immediately, or did you actually stop to consider
what was being said? And, is the statement "lesbianism is not mentioned
in the Old Testament anywhere, not even in Leviticus purity laws" true,
or not?


If true, is not this line of thinking worthy of something more than immediate dismissal?


If false, provide citation.



Posted by: Kinley Ardal at July 21, 2017 02:24 PM (6JL3d)


I ask again, ma'am; provide citation that the assertion "Lesbianism is not mentioned in Leviticus sexual prohibitions" is false, or accept that the premise is true, and frame your thinking accordingly.
Do not be content to say "I KNOW it's wrong," and rest upon your feeling of righteousness. That mistake's been made for a long time by lots of fine folks, and it drags us into unnecessary conflicts; among ourselves, and with others.

256 Who among us can point to a pair of lesbians and cite what the sin is? Who is being hurt? What is being stolen? Where is the apathy or malice that is always, always the cause of our Lord's righteous anger?

The only answer to this question is Romans 1:26's seeming prohibition, which brings us full circle and leaves us with the same question as before, or worse, if we perform honest, unbiased exegesis.

Speaking for myself, it seems readily apparent that there is no sin being committed by lesbians, and I, as a Christian, see no virtue (and indeed, much harm) in condemning them on the basis of a reverse-engineered church tradition

by: Kinley Ardel


This is dishonest, or ignorant.

"Who is being hurt?"

Their children, and the bakers and photographers who want to be free to run their businesses without being forced into things that promote immorality. And what about bestiality? What about incest? What about about molested children?

A comfortable line of thinking, but continuing in the same vein of "it's obviously sin", and intellectual and spiritual laziness in refusing to put forth any effort to find an answer.


As refutation since you very aptly pointed out that "when in doubt, don't", which acknowledges the doubt that exists, I would quote Paul and say to let each man (or woman) have his own conviction before God about the matter.


To this point, all we have is people either making jokes, or being angry (in a polite way) about the assertion, founded upon actual Scripture, and rebutting the assertion with their own feelings, not a hint of Scripture.


This is largely the reason the church is in the sorry state it's in these days; the church body as a whole has no answer for the problems facing the world because most of them do not read Scripture, and don't know it well enough to answer challenge.

But hey, I'll give it a shot. To your question, 'What sin are two lesbians committing?' The answer would be fornication, which would hold true for any non-married couple having sex. The same would hold true for me, since the woman I've been with for almost ten years, the love of my life, doesn't believe in marriage.

Am I wrong for complying with such an arrangement? Yes, but I love her and won't risk losing her by demanding she marry me.

https://www.gotquestions.org/Bible-lesbian.html


If we're going to discuss homosexulaityy we might as well discuss the whole idea of sex before marriage-period. which is fornication and a sin

And her's what i will discuss but can't stay. Part of accepted behavior is that I must have sex with someone I love before marriage-that it's obligatoy and as several corollary to the,t if i find someone attractive and love them, i perforce must have sex with them. You see, I thunk's possible to love someone every deeply so that they are closer to you than a brother or sister and not have sex with them. Whereas I think people have deep feelings for other people all the time and chose not to act on it.

Yes, my first response was before finishing your
post, second was after. Your argument appears to be that sex with men
(outside of marriage) is bad, sex with animals is bad, but sex with
other women (which is automatically outside of marriage and at best is
fornication) is fine. I agree with the commenter who asked why women
should be held to a lower standard.



My advice to spend time honestly asking the author was not snark and remains my advice.

Posted by: Polliwogg the 'Ette at July 21, 2017 02:49 PM (rp9xB)

The premise is immediately wrong, since I stated unequivocally at the outset that it is plainly said that men with men is stated flat-out to be wrong in Scripture, right there in Leviticus.
You can say 'without snark', but the moment you lobbed the word accusation, the post took on quite a different meaning. o.o
I shall indeed press on asking the Author, because there are significant gaps in our knowledge base and illogical jumps on many a topic since the days Scripture was written, and I am eager to understand all that can be known.

Indeed, this life holds nothing so interesting to me as the love God has for all mankind, and to know exactly what the Lord is saying, with precision and without human distortion, and to communicate the real depths of His love and teachings to the world is my only real passion. All else is fun and games ~o.o~ and occasionally bopping long-robed internet Pharisees upside the head.

Lookin' at you, Stevie boy McFrostyungulate!

haven't entirely submitted themselves to God, the haven't asked for the

Fenelon, I had not yet got around to replying to you. Indeed, of all the posts I have ever seen from you, hostile has always been the furthest description from my mind.

It's a bit embarassing to say <.< but I always enjoy reading your posts and the sincerity and concern you bring to the table.

Sean Spicer Resigns Over Trump's Appointment of Tony Scaramucci As Director of Communications

Scaramucci is already known as a "ferocious" defender of Trump on cable news, so Trump figures he should get paid for it. Apparently Spicer and Priebus objected, noting that Scaramucci had no organizational or political experience.

Spicer resigned rather than be a subordinate to Scaramucci.

I get the "doesn't have organizational or political experience" thing, but the problem is: Most people with that experience tend to be, in policy positions at least, anti-Trump, or at least coming to the job with the idea that they will subvert Trump's agenda into a conventional insider Republican agenda.

I think Trump's tired of such folks telling him he can't do this or that but can only choose from Establishment Approved Options A and B.

7 Everyone keeps telling Trump he's making this and that mistake--even on the right--because they still view Trump as you'd view a usual politician.

And, for some reason, they keep being wrong and Trump keeps winning.

All of his setbacks have been due to doing things the approved, old way.

yeah, and they seem willing to use force (backing the deep state investigation, resisting health care reform, demanding amnesty, hoping/helping Mueller's deep dive can find a reason to "take out" Trump) ... willing to force Trump out.

As Rush has been saying, they will never let Trump into their DC Establishment Club. The failure theater preceded Trump, but now their repeal votes are being changed. Bringing in "outsiders" (real Americans) is necessary to change the global cabal's "tune".

I've noticed a pattern with Trump in that he stumbles sometimes at first, figures out what he wants, cleans house, and gets things rolling right. Running for president: learning on the job isn't easy but he pulled it off. Same with the job of president, he's only been at it less than 6 months. He's learning on the job, and unlike Obama, is actually getting better at it because he's not partying every night in a haze of pot smoke

You can't keep creating fodder for one crisis after another. If he keeps that up he won't have to fire anyone. They'll all quit.

Spicer's resignation surprised me--not because I know the guy or his temperament or loyalties but because serving directly under the President means you're serving the country in a way that few patriotic people could ever even dream about. If he quit because he didn't like his new immediate superior, then he's a child and good riddance.

You know, I used to be critical of the President's tweets. I see why he does it now. Trump doesn't rely on the press to communicate directly to the people. Just as it was with FDR and radio and Reagan with television, so it is with Trump and social media.

The politician who first realizes and exploits the potential of a dominant or ascendant communications medium has a huge advantage over his opposition.

159 Lyndon Baines Johnson would invite White House press corps reporters into the bathroom with him while he was sitting on the toilet taking a shit. He did this as a matter of policy, constantly.

And no one ever reported on it at the time.

Because the reporters were all Democrats, and also they felt some sort of reverence for the office.

Contrast that to their treatment of Trump.

169 Jared, I share your deep and principled concern.

I have calculated the concerning firing of Spicer by Drumpf into my predictor for 2020, along with the totally non-politically motivated charges for Manafort, and it's very concerning for Trump:

Trump: (-) 69.9%
Hill-dawg: 99.9%
Egg McMuffin: 0.1%

If this trend holds, Trump is going to have a concerning and early night in 2020.

249 Considering that Trump's first ever elected office was President of the United States, objecting to him that a potential hire didn't have prior experience in the same type of job might not have been the best idea.

Trump seems to be the kind of boss who prefers demonstrated competence over a fancy resume'.

The biggest problem with *any* political talk is that people act like they know more than a few percent of events that are going on, and they don't.

And on a good day, half of what they know is wrong, or worse.

And trust me, I know what it's like to have the patience of a five-year-old with a $200-a-day crack habit, but we pretty much find out most of that 3 percent of what's going on at least a week late.

It's *kind of* not a surprise that everyone is frustrated up over the tops of their heads.

Anyway, she talked about all the lesbianism on the tour. That the cameras were always positioned not to get the crazy fangrrls in the picture.

More recently I know a guy whose father was a senior Korean government official. That 9 out of 10 on the leaderboard of the LPGA are named Park and Lee is not a coincidence. The Korean gangsters decided to make their daughters golf champions in the model of Tiger Woods - they start as soon as they can walk, and just golf golf golf all day.

Also the huge medicaid fraud round up and they also shut down the two biggest dark net drug marketplaces.

Both are related to the opioid crisis. Pretty traditional if aggressive movements to deal with the problem. It won't work, but it's what the government traditionally does to try and tamp things down. Trump talked about it during the campaign so that's going to continue.

I still want movement on Soros and the Dems though.

328 Didn't read all the comments, so I apologize if I am repeating what someone else said.
Went out to lunch, was listening to Rush Limbaugh on the radio.

His take is pretty much what Ace said. Spicer was spokesman for Reince Priebus when he was head of the RNC. This was Trump playing to the GOPe, trying to make peace.

And Spicer fought for him, but now things are turning in a different direction. I expect Priebus to be gone in 30- 90 days. He has failed as Chief of staff, as liason between Trump and the GOPe in the House and Senate.

Many of those.....a-holes, are playing a different game.

The Media BS with all the Russian nonsense is more background noise to Trump than the obstinancy of the Republican Party.

Trump also replaced his personal chief counsel in the White House, with someone who is going to be more combative with Robert Mueller's Special Counsel gang.

John Dowd. This may be more significant than Spicer stomping off in a snit.

Was she shot while approaching the car, or after she HAD approached the car, and had started talking to the driver?

In business, people's motivations are pretty clear for the most part.

I'll offer you more money if you help me make money...

Yes I am minimizing but basically getting your and your employees' interests in line isn't that hard normally.

Politics is much harder. People have issues of particular interest to them. Bribes, both formal and informal, are the norm. Blackmail is common.

And unfortunately most of the people that live in that world and know how to navigate it are hardcore anti-Trump.

If not for the civil service laws you could fix that pretty quickly (everyone hired or promoted under Obama is fired as of today)...but not so much here.

So Trump needs people he can trust that will also aggressively act. And they generally have to be willing to take a major pay cut and be willing to be constantly slimed by the FNM while they are doing it.

Missouri and Tennessee most recently. California a couple weeks ago. I *think* Texas, but don't remember for sure. Also, rounds ng up MS-13 will put a stop to a lot of trafficking as well.

I can guess why you picked those states, but the state authorities may not be cooperating, certainly the local ones won't, which means it will take longer. Most of this is probably Trump's administration not actively preventing state and local enforcement from doing their job like Obama did. And really, that's how it ought to be.

I haven't seen any suggestion that Trump is NOT talking responsibility for his hires. It's an exaggeration to use a phrase like "all these terrible people around Trump."

Every President makes hires for any number of different reasons, INCLUDING the obvious and necessary political deal-making hires.

Furthermore, it has ALWAYS been true that Secretarial level hires have a certain amount of autonomy, and since the President is not a dictator, how he goes about getting rid of bad hires, is always going to be a delicate operation.

He's getting rid of people. Which is what you want... assuming you really do want him to succeed.

389 This idea that the business world is constantly hiring and firing people for the same job is just the reality I live in.

So when people say this is a smart business approach, it's simply not.

Stock prices would crater for company that had that level of turnover in upper management and the CEO would be asked to step down.

I want only the best people for Trump , but if this pattern is still going through the entire term, people are going to get sick of the excuses.

If he fires Sessions, I could see that being when the bottom falls out.

Gonna be that guy, and quietly point out that, contrary to prevailing opinion, there is no explicit condemnation of lesbianism in OT. There certainly is for male homosexuality, but lesbianism is not mentioned at all.


Nor will it do to say 'what's good for the gander is good for the goose', as abberant sex acts are listed for both male and female in detail in Leviticus 18, including bestiality listed as a sin for both man and woman. Therefore, the absence of a proscription against lesbianism cannot be explained away very easily.


The only case against lesbianism is in Romans 1, which is interesting because you can read it one of two ways.


26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.


So, lots of folks read this as citing lesbian acts by the women in question, but that's eisegesis, not exegesis. Pull up a variety of translations, and you'll see, coming to the text without reading into it what you think it says, that another explanation makes more sense, especially given the line that follows; that is to say, women were not using the right port of entry, if you'll pardon my expression; doing that which was 'unnatural', "in the same way, men also abandoned natural relations with women, and committed shameful acts with one another'.


Given that there was no actual prohibition against lesbianism in OT, it is difficult to interpret this text as being a blanket prohibition added centuries afterwards.


The long and short of it is, don't be too quick to judge, and end up putting pressure on people unduly for things that are mentioned barely at all, or, in the case of lesbianism, actually not mentioned at all.

I accuse no one of anything. I, myself, was in the same line of thinking til this past year. It is noteworthy that, out of a pretty diplomatic post, we accelerate right to the word accusation. I counsel prayer, and study - no, not the kind where we read the Scripture, nod, and say, that's what it says - I mean actually study, consider, work on it.

Did you write your reply immediately, or did you actually stop to consider what was being said? And, is the statement "lesbianism is not mentioned in the Old Testament anywhere, not even in Leviticus purity laws" true, or not?

If true, is not this line of thinking worthy of something more than immediate dismissal?

If false, provide citation.

401 I hate these discussions of homosexuality which seen to devolve into nastiness. However, here is a response the question.

https://www.gotquestions.org/Bible-lesbian.html


If we're going to discuss homosexulaityy we might as well discuss the whole idea of sex before marriage-period.

And her's what i will discuss but can't stay. Part of accepted behavior is that I must have sex with someone I love before marriage-that it's obligatoy and as several corollary to the,t if i find someone attractive and love them, i perforce must have sex with them. You see, I thunk's possible to love someone every deeply so that they are closer to you than a brother or sister and not have sex with them. Whereas I think people have deep feelings for other people all the time and chose not to act on it. Men with men, Women with women, men with women.

Their conclusion:

The Democratic Party is the largest crime syndicate in history.

Dinesh D'Souza agrees.

GorillaPundit weighs in:

talking ape.jpg
"I get so tired of these virtue-signaling celebrity halfwits bleating about global warming, or overpopulation, or whatever Michael Bay-level environmental disaster is
au courant. I mean, as far as extinction events go, me and my homies are in the on-deck circle, so homo sapiens can go pee up a rope. But no matter how long crybabies like Leonardo DiCaprio blubber and weep about the Earf, I never see any of them volunteer to get the hell off of it early so they'd stop sucking up resources they claim we're fast running out of. I mean, seriously, dude, if you think there are too many people on the earth, set an example and kill yourself. Consider it thinking globally and acting locally."

If some raving lunatic detached from reality is screaming that everyone must leave their houses and live outside, inside cardboard boxes, because that is the only way to defeat the secret alien takeover of Earf, and this lunatic himself is living in a cardboard box, would you take his concerns seriously?

Of course not. The climate nonsense is nonsense because of logic, common sense, and actual data and scientific method - and thus is dismissed by any serious scientifically literate person. The behavior of the nitwits (from "credentialed" "scientists" to hucksters like Gore to airhead celebrities) is irrelevant.

Reynolds really should retire that one. It makes him sound as illogical and stupid as those he is ridiculing.

Fear has always been a means of Political control...

Whether fear of the Unknown (witches), fear of God (religion), fear of someone else's God, fear of the foreign (most Wars pre modern times)... even Fear of foreign Leaders (Bonaparte is the Debil)...

Now, they just use fear of things modern...

If our Government betters REALLY wanted to take care of Islamic Terrorism... it would be solved by now... (the actions would not have been pretty, but it could have been done).... instead after 9/11 they calmed us down, but used the Threat to assert MORE control.. on us...

Note, we are now in the Longest running 'War' in American History, and have no plans to win it... it will be perpetual War.

Same with Global Warming crap.... its the perfect Fear induced control mechanism... because they convinced most it exists, and can NEVER be solved... thus... accruing more and more power to solve an insolvable problem...

74 And one my favorites they STILL try to pass off...

Ice is melting at the poles, and the land is going to be under WATER!!!!

Even if it hit 100 degrees at the poles, it would take CENTURIES for any really significant amounts of Ice to melt...

Oh, and for the record... the Poles are actually ADDING Ice right now overall... there is only a very few places where the warmer currents are causing any real melting...

My favorite which I heard the other day was about Fuckerberg going to Glacier National Park IN THE FUCKING SUMMER to lament the melting glaciers and climate change.

115 Suitable for any gathering of politicians:
It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place,
which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice.

Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government.

Ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess?

Ye have no more religion than my horse. Gold is your God. Which of you have not bartered your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defiled this sacred place, and turned the Lord's temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices?

Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation. You were deputed here by the people to get grievances redressed, are yourselves become the greatest grievance.

Your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse this Augean stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings in this House; and which by God's help, and the strength he has given me, I am now come to do.

I command ye therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place.

Go, get you out! Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

In the name of God, go!

165 The Finns actually did a study. The plastic grocery bags have a far far far smaller "carbon footprint" than the "resusable" waxed cotton grocery bags. Between the cotton farming, manufacturing, dying, transport, manufacture etc etc etc etc than the thin grocery bags. You'd have to use a reusable waxed cotton bag over 1000x to make it even close to ONE plastic bag for better carbon footprint. They are also disgustingly dirty.


Once had an effeminate clerk try to get me to use the reusable bag. I refused nicely twice, the third time I ripped him with stats. Then reminded him that he asked.

That is your opinion, and you are entitled to it...

I'd rather see the press chasing Twitter comments... which make them look silly...

Eventually.... it will become so normal that no one will pay attention anymore...

So ... why.... stop...

244 I like how Gorillapundit has gotten more loquacious as the days go on. Good to see he's getting more comfortable with public speaking. Pretty soon, we'll be seeing Gorillapundit movie reviews.

YOU can do phrasing. I'm just not going to bother with it anymore. It's more fun that way.

248 Amid all of these horrible people (not Dinesh, not Gorilla Pundit, but the others): Yesterday in the Apollo 11 thread, Common Tater mentioned "SCE to AUX" and I had never heard of that and I had never heard of John Aaron and that's somebody worth having heard of.

250 GD, Gasparino is such a pompous hog. He interrupts every person on the panel. Won't let them finish a sentence or a thought.

Because it prevents communication just like political correctness does.

255 The Finns actually did a study. The plastic grocery bags have a far far far smaller "carbon footprint" than the "resusable" waxed cotton grocery bags.

More to the point, it also turns out that plastic bags are biodegradable. No duh. There was a great deal of surprise a little while back that there was some bacteria capable of digesting them - without going all The Plastic Eaters, it is possible for a bacteria to do that.

Leaving, of course, what any fool seeing bags in a ditch could have told them, that plastic bags break down like a motherfucker in sunlight if they haven't been buried.
