Nebraska State Democrat Official: I Wish Our Leftwing Assassin Had Succeeded in Murdering Steve Scalise

The official has been removed from her post, but that wouldn't be enough if she were a Republican.

The recording was made during a conversation between Montag, party official Chelsey Gentry-Tipton and a friend of hers. Gentry-Tipton faced criticism last week for saying the GOP members of Congress crying about the shooting on television were funny because they supported the National Rifle Association’s agenda.

"I'm glad he got shot," Montag says in the recording. "I'm not gonna (expletive) say that in public."

"Well then what are you saying it to us for?" someone else in the recording asks.

"I wish he was (expletive) dead," Montag replies.

Here's the thing: The media milks one-day bad stories about Republicans into two, three, or four day stories by adding on secondary, follow-up, and spin-off stories. The easiest and most obvious way to milk a one-day story into multiple days is to turn to asking each and every Republican in the world if he denounces the person in question, and if he himself has contributed to the "Climate of X" that (unstated assumption offered with no evidence) caused the Recent Unpleasantness.

By doing so, you not only keep the story alive, so that more people hear about it, as it dominates all media chatter, but you subconsiously link the bad story involving one Republican to all Republicans.

This is deliberate.

But notice that the press never does that for Democrats. No one in the press -- not even in the conservative press -- will be asking Democrats if they denounce this Democrats' death-wishes, and if they think that Democrat hate-speech has encouraged this death-wish-speech, and if death-wish-speech encourages all the political violence on the left.

The media knows how to make a one-day bad story for one Republican into a weeklong bad story for all Republicans.

It also knows how to make a one-day bad story for a Democrat a half-day story about a minor office-holder of unknown party affiliation.

50 The truth is, I remember the sort of rage I felt election night in 2012, but it was NOTHING compared to what these lunatics look like they're feeling. I felt shitty for a day or two then went back to my life. Half the time I watch these videos of Antifa or the DNC hacks having meetings like this, it's like behind their eyes is some kind of villainous BSOD. November 2016 was some fatal system error to the Dems and it's triggered some horrible reboot.

Not that violence isn't their schtick. Always has been an important part of how they achieve dominance, but primarily they're more focused on subversion. THAT'S what seems scary. Marxists prefer slowly creeping into institutions and assimilating them. To be so brazenly open like this about using murder and mayhem shows how desperate and unhinged they are. When they say Trump is Hitler, I believe that in their eyes that is absolutely true.

They're acting like cornered animals, and cornered animals are at their most dangerous.

89 Excellent concise explanation of the technique long used to distort the "news" environment, act.

No less so for being fairly clear and evident for years now.

And what is one implication of this observation of yours?

That the GOP (or whatever targeted entity is involved) types should pro-actively push back, hard, whenever this sort of thing is tried.

Amidst all the pinch-yourself-where-am-I moments of the last 10 years - and they have been numerous, growing to nearly continuous - the reaction to this attempted mass assassination may take the cake.

The first attempted mass political assassination in our history (the PR attack on the House chamber in the 50's might be in this category, I guess), and the reaction ...... a modified yawn.

Even from F***ING Republicans, near as I can tell.

120 Look, by now people know Democrats don't want to govern. They want to rule.

They don't want to have factual, logical arguments with the goal of finding the right solution. They want to undercut logic with their media divisions bleating their talking points and force or coerce you into accepting their policies. No matter who that injures, hurt, offends or kills.

Law and constitution don't matter. Controlling the judiciary with their acolytes does.

They don't want a "fair" fight. They want subjugation at any cost.

People only know this now because during the reign of Obama, they felt safe to finally tell the truth about their real aims. I guess they thought there would be a 1,000 year Reich or something.

But their isn't and the voter know the truth now.

Feminist: You're obviously a h8r. "Feminism is the radical proposition that women are people, too." How could you be against that?

-----

Do you see what the feminist did there? She led with a controversial, hard-to-defend statement, and then, when pressed, retreated to a safe, no-sane-person-can-be-against-this platitude. And then pretended the two are the same. I've seen this in one form or another for years and it's just infuriating. But I never knew until about an hour ago that it has a name.

Ladies and gentlemen, behold, the Motte and Bailey trick:

Motte and bailey (MAB) is a combination of bait-and-switch and equivocation in which someone switches at will between a "motte" (an easy-to-defend and often common-sense statement, such as "culture shapes our experiences") and a "bailey" (a hard-to-defend and more controversial statement, such as "cultural knowledge is just as valid as scientific knowledge") in order to defend their viewpoint. Someone will "support" the easy-to-defend (motte) temporarily, to ward off critics, but does not actually believe what they're saying. The "difficult" (bailey) version always remains the desired belief, but is never actually defended. For all intents and purposes, the MAB'er is defending a "ghost" belief.

So MAB is a specie of the genus "bait and switch." I found this graphic on Twitter that illustrates the MAB with a couple of examples:


motte and bailey.jpg

It has suddenly occurred to me that the old "clown nose on/clown nose off" stunt that Jon Stewart pulled on Tucker Carlson to great effect could be seen as a kind of MAB sub-specie.

Anyway, that's all I've got this morning. Hopefully, ace will be here soon with some real content.

43 The only rational basis for altruistic behavior in human relationships is family. That is, a mother/father would give anything to help their child -- beyond what is strictly rational, risking life and limb, financial gain, social status, etc. No one would criticize someone helping a parent or sibling to the point of personal ruin. Well, at least doing so is rationally defensible. The left seeks to undermine family because they seek to replace the only rationally defensible altruistic motive -- love of family -- with the same unquestioning adherence to the goals of the state. The left says the government is family. Thus feminism is more important than motherhood and the promotion of homosexuality, and, separately, sexual deviancy. I dunno. I just hate them so much.

Another good word is rhetoric, from the ancient Greek, means (mostly) to orate, to speak with the intent to persuade with some implied deception. Like the naked woman in the art class yesterday, her defense lawyer used his powers of persuasion to convince the jury to find the defendant not guilt of the charge of impiety by stripping her naked in front of a jury of men.

63 "Atheism is just a lack of belief in God."


I've heard this before, and as a non-believer, it strikes me as dishonest. I like to think of it by what I call a "Tarzan Analogy".

Let's say you find Tarzan in the jungle, and tell him about theology. He might honestly say "those concepts never occurred to me before! When I was in the jungle, I had a lack of belief in God".

But of course no atheist is in that position, not even people like John Loftus. They have heard at least some of the arguments for theism, mulled them over, and rejected them. So they need to state it positively as they used to, ie. "atheism is the belief that God does not exist".

Even broke as a joke and rotting from the head, middle, and toes, there's a lot of graft, money, power, and other juicy stuff to be had by whomever gets control.

For decades, it's been promised that People of Color would be the new top rats, but, the People of Sexual Identity/Preference Politics or the Intersectional Feminists think it should be them.

Infighting over limited resources is always the bane of a coalition, particularly when a power vacuum forms in the leadership and Hillary and BJ have sucked the juice from DNC down to its twisted gnarled toenails.

103 Here's another stupid leftist rhetorical tactic -

the AP has an article about Barky's latest vacation:

BALI, Indonesia (AP) -- Former U.S. President Barack Obama and his family arrived Friday on the resort island of Bali to begin a vacation in Indonesia, where he lived for several years as a child, officials said.

"Several years" ... he was only there for a little bit. More like FIVE YEARS, and five of the most important years in shaping a person's deep world view, from age 5 to 10. Pretty much all of Barky's vhildhood memories are of Indonesia. He is, at his core, Indonesian.

But the AP chose to downplay all that with the fuzzy and small "several".

143 I've heard this before, and as a non-believer, it strikes me as dishonest. I like to think of it by what I call a "Tarzan Analogy".

Let's say you find Tarzan in the jungle, and tell him about theology. He might honestly say "those concepts never occurred to me before! When I was in the jungle, I had a lack of belief in God".

But of course no atheist is in that position, not even people like John Loftus. They have heard at least some of the arguments for theism, mulled them over, and rejected them. So they need to state it positively as they used to, ie. "atheism is the belief that God does not exist".


I have seen the 'lack of belief in God" thing used is retarded ways i.e. (seriously) "People are naturally atheists because babies lack a belief in God" . I tend to eschew the idea that its about "belief" and its more in the realm of opinion: "I think there likely is no God." and all the argument is about how strongly I hold my opinion.

But if one was to go transculturally (dude) then the "lack of beleif in God" becomes more useful. Some Buddhists are atheists, for example. Or some animists. The whole "God" thing isn't very important to them, so it kinda makes definitional sense. But lumping them in with Dawkins is probably a mistake.............

148 43 The only rational basis for altruistic behavior in human relationships is family. That is, a mother/father would give anything to help their child -- beyond what is strictly rational, risking life and limb, financial gain, social status, etc. No one would criticize someone helping a parent or sibling to the point of personal ruin. Well, at least doing so is rationally defensible. The left seeks to undermine family because they seek to replace the only rationally defensible altruistic motive -- love of family -- with the same unquestioning adherence to the goals of the state. The left says the government is family. Thus feminism is more important than motherhood and the promotion of homosexuality, and, separately, sexual deviancy. I dunno. I just hate them so much.

165 There's an inversion apparent in Motte and Bailey arguments, too. Specifically, if we know which Bailey is associated with which Motte, it becomes possible to use the Motte as a dog whistle for the Bailey. It can be disavowed to an enemy, and winked for the friendly.

Example, "A woman's right to choose":
Motte, strong-seeming position that the woman has a say in whether she will have children or not.
Bailey (and what is thereby dogwhistled to the true believer): "A woman has the right to take *any means necessary* to not have children, up to and including infanticide".

It's useful to be able to dogwhistle in this way, because usually the extreme position feels more empowering.

Posted by: Hate Has No Homo


Some are evangelical. Dawkins for one. I'm not evangelical, precisely because apart from their distrust in theology, I don't share one single belief with any of them. People who are religious believe things that are unverifiable to a sufficient degree, IMHO (such as events recorded in the Bible). Most atheists, OTOH, believe a SHITLOAD of stupid shit that is VERIFIABLY FALSE. So most atheists are far more stupid than the religious people they mock. Van Til's revenge.

Yep. Relentlessly eschew emotion, keep the discussion focused on definitions and facts, and go straight for the contrast between the Motte and bailey. "Now you are saying X, but what you originally said is Y, and the contrast is stark. This demonstrates that what people often mean when they say X is really Y. "

197 I'm curious, did you used to be a believer and then change your mind?

Posted by: OregonMuse, AoSHQ Thought Leader


No, I was raised in an agnostic household in east LI in the 70's-80's.

I always hated atheism, I still hate it, because it is the religion of despair. I've tried to escape it numerous times over the years, reading Lewis, or listening to William Lane Craig debates, or lectures by the smart guys, like D.A. Carson, James White or Greg Koukl. While I agree with a lot of their points it was never sufficient to push me over the edge into belief.

There is one thing that I think cannot be squared, ever, with atheism, and that is consciousness.

I need to read J.P. Moreland some day - he is the expert on consciousness. I've heard some references by Koukl to his ideas, and it is intriguing. I figured out at around age 12 that consciousness cannot be explained by naturalism. If you have a trillion golf balls in space, with little motors attached, that would replicate the motion of atoms in the human brain, that entity would not be conscious.

205 #197 I always hated atheism, I still hate it, because it is the religion of despair.

I have a belief that is pretty simple - we are hardwired to have irrational beliefs. People who choose (and it is a choice) not to believe in god don't suddenly become rational in all things, they just transfer that irrational belief to something else - anti-vaccines, anti-GMOs, Chelsea Clinton, magical economics, climate change, etc.

My feeling is you are better off leaving your irrationality lodged into something relatively harmless. Believing in life after death is a lot less harmful than most progressive beliefs.

I would submit that the style very effectively reflects the event. You don't just see people existing in a loud nightclub, the smears of paint--the active painting technique--helps one feel it, hear it. Boldini wants you to feel that you just walked in off the dark, quiet street and are immediately assaulted by the noise, lights and colors of this lively bar. It is the "impression" of the nightlife of a large urban metropolis in late-19th century Europe.

As art, meh. As social commentary on the state of the country under
Trump, how women are forced to prostitute themselves for health
insurance under the nasty Republican police state... I could probably
sell this to the Atlantic. Posted by: JEM at June 23, 2017 09:30 AM (TppKb)

The Atlantic's orientation has gone beyond predictably Left to a house style that's just-damned-peculiar-and-offnote, so your pitch will need a wrinkle. I'd suggest something like "women forced to prostitute themselves for health insurance under the nasty Republican police state...to the eager-but-flaccid senior golf-set at upscale New Mexico residential trailer parks."

It's an odd publication anymore.

O creator and mighty Lord, who loves Elle, send you have promised strength for the weak, rest for the laborers, light for the way, grace for the trials, help from above, unfailing sympathy, undying love, O loving Lord, send your Holy Spirit upon L Elle, Give her every good blessing to do what she has to do and do it well.

The GOP margin in the Senate is so narrow that every one of the usual adzholes (McPain; Murkowski; Graham, others) imagines that he/she has the magic controlling vote. And they're damn near right.

So since these idiots all have egos bigger than Karen Handel's ass, the net result is that PDT can't get anything passed.

The second net result is that the GOP is going to stroll into the 2018 election and run on a platform of, "We wasted the last two years. Now give us another two."

That reminds me of the story about Natalie Wood, James Dean and Dennis Hopper during the filming of Rebel Without A Cause.

At one point during the shoot, the three of them decided to get away to a cabin in the woods for a weekend sex romp. Dean and Hopper also thought they'd party like old Hollywood in the '20s and fill a bathtub with champagne for Wood.

Which they did. As the two men watched, entranced, Wood slipped off her clothes and climbed into the tub. However, the moment her holy of holies touched the bubbling, fizzy liquid, she screamed, "My pussy's on fire!" and jumped out of the tub, running into her room and slamming the door.

So our two leading men were left with deflating erections and the sad knowledge that there would be no shenanigans for them that weekend.

Posted by: Village Idiot's Apprentice at June 23, 2017 09:46 AM (J+eG2)


Stipulating the autopilot theory is true, the Fitzgerald was still at fault by the Rules of the Road. In a crossing or overtaking situation the ship on the right has right-of-way - kinda/sorta like a 4-way stop. The Fitzgerald should have either slowed down or turned to starboard to avoid the collision.

The fact that the CO was still in his cabin when the incident happened means the ship had no track on that contact at all. If a ship is projected to come within 4000 yards (or so, depends on the CO) it's a common standing order to ring him up and let him know.

144 This painting is an interesting composition. The bright colors, exaggerated really, and the eddies of movement throughout the room are captured with Boldini's impasto and swirling style. But within the overall gay (in the old sense before a perfectly good word was bastardized) atmosphere are pockets of intimacy for some of the couples. Their proximity versus the spaciousness of the entire room forms areas of focus.

I don't know if this is simply a scene Boldini found visually interesting, if he was celebrating a culture that could have such excess, or if he was against so much waste and dissipation. I suspect it was the first.

BTW, Giovanni Boldini is known for this technique but some of his portraits are exquisite and remind me of Sargent.

Yeah. It's really hard to tell his actual opinion about the scene. Are the colors drab because that was the color scheme, or is he commenting on the dark underbelly of modern society? It seems both and neither, like he is depicting what he is experiencing without comment. My understanding of Impressionism is that artists tended to be more optimistic, but there are always exceptions. Pappy Pissarro and the American Ashcans, for example.

I've got a few theories, but my two top at the moment: Fitzgerald had some sort of engineering casualty that took the radars offline. Problem with that theory: it was reported to be a clear night, so lookouts should have still had eyeballs on the freighter.

Theory Two:Fitzgerald's Officer of the Deck was an arrogant jerkwad who did nothing because "we're a US warship, the freighter will change course to avoid us." I say this based on having seen the same behavior, i.e. believing that because you're a US warship that rules of the road only apply when you want them to, in action previously (with the carrier Lincoln, no less).

I've seen that attitude before, too, but the problem with theory 2 is that there is a second nav team working for the TAO that makes recommendations to the OOD as to course and speed based on the nav picture. *They* have the authority to call the CO if they think the safety of the ship is at risk, and they are tasked with recording the nav picture and calculating Closest Point of Approach (CPA) for all contacts. It appears none of that was done as a moboard would have shown Constant Bearing Decreasing Range (CBDR), which makes me think nobody held that merch as a contact until it was too late.

Medicare Part D was originally supposed to be a stand alone insurance plan to allow subscribers to get discounted drugs, as participants in the plan. The Federal government was going to seed it with money, but then it was supposed to operate by itself.

It did not do that, but that was more due to the penchant for the Federal Government to deliberately screw up everything.

So the truly poor and ill and those that really can't take care of themselves could be put in a high risk pool, and the FedGov puts money in to make an insurance plan for these people float. Rather than make everyone else genuflect towards the Federal DHS.

A lot of things "could" work if we could count on a minimum of corruption and lying from the government, which we can't. They want to corrupt everything eventually, to get more power.

The axiom of the Left.

I'm still gonna go with an unpublished finding that excessive reliance on technology has fostered a Navy wide climate of lax watch standing. All in an effort to reduce below minimum manning to reduce the Navy's personnel budget, and retirement/healthcare costs.

And just wait till this attitude encroaches into the civilian auto culture.

Entirely possible, which comes to theory three, which I actually experienced once: the *ENTIRE* ship was asleep. Literally asleep. It happened on the FFG I was on once, returning from deployment. Midwatch, no contacts anywhere. Nothing on radar or ESM. Minimal manning. Engineering rover comes into CIC to get the CICWO's signature for his latest rounds. Everyone (but me) is asleep in CIC. The rover (an ENFA, IIRC) calls out (he can't see me in my corner). Then he asks me what he should do? Turns out, he and I are the only two people on the ship who are awake. Everyone on the bridge and in CCSare asleep, too! I signed his sheet and told him to quietly go to the bridge and wake the BMOW, tell him what's going on, and have him quietly wake everyone else upstarting with themost junior and working his way up to the JOOD and then the OOD, then do the same thing in CCS. We were lucky as crap that nothing happened. However, I can't imagine this happening in a major shipping lane, where Fitzgerald was transiting.

280 I'd like to post a memorial in this thread for a WWII vet in my town who died recently at age 102: James Kennedy. Asheville area (Black Mountain). Just a very kind and gentle old black man - my mom used to talk to him when he was trimming his hedges, and he (having been a cook) shared with her some tips from his long career...

Agreed. It's a problem here in Canada, too. IMHO, any company big enough to have a presence in more than one State (or Province) should be required, as a condition of holding a business licence, to have live humans who are native speakers of the language on hand to answer phones during normal business hours.

Seriously there are units out there that special forces are experimenting with that seem to get good results.

Hannity apparently masterfully trolled JoMika last night (from BB) --

Thursday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity," host Sean Hannity took aim at MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski in a monologue segment.

After playing a montage of what Hannity called "unhinged" behavior from Scarborough and Brzezinski regarding President Donald Trump, Hannity wished the two the best on their engagement and then offered to pay for their therapy to address their emotions about Trump.

"With all these emotional breakdowns, with all this anger towards the president, I'm actually getting worried about Mika and 'Liberal' Joe," he said. "See, America's favorite couple that nobody watches -- it's just kind of, they're starting out their lives together, and I want them to be successful. I even tweeted out congratulations on their engagement. It seems the stress of the Trump presidency now is really beginning to drag them down and I'm beginning to see way too many emotional breakdowns every day. I even heard a rumor that they've been very distraught and they weren't even able to see a President Trump look-a-like get killed during a Shakespeare play in the park with their blanky and their picnic basket and their champagne and caviar."

309 Stipulating the autopilot theory is true, the Fitzgerald was still at fault by the Rules of the Road. In a crossing or overtaking situation the ship on the right has right-of-way - kinda/sorta like a 4-way stop. The Fitzgerald should have either slowed down or turned to starboard to avoid the collision.

The fact that the CO was still in his cabin when the incident happened means the ship had no track on that contact at all. If a ship is projected to come within 4000 yards (or so, depends on the CO) it's a common standing order to ring him up and let him know.

Posted by: Jeff Weimer at June 23, 2017 10:05 AM (DlGvB)

All legalities aside, basically the onus is on the smaller, more maneuverable vessel to take action to avoid a collision. Because the larger vessels simply can't turn on a dime.

313 Prayers, please for our son.

He moved in with a new, young roommate less than a month ago, to "save" money in a nicer, larger apartment.

Son is roommate's only "friend" and has turned out to be emotionally unstable, to the point of leaving his laptop on "record" when he's not at home (which is illegal and bat shit crazy).

Kid recently inherited a lot of money from wealthy NY granny, and is insisting our son split cost of cable (which son has never had), the washer/dryer he decided to rent, and has literally run off son's other friends from the apartment.

Son is working long hours for my husband this summer, and begins his final year of school end of summer. Now the kid is so jealous of son's vet buddies who used to drop by, he's told our son to "get out" because the lease is in his name only.

So now son has to hustle to find another affordable one bedroom apt.

Husband and I have met the kid, and he always was very polite and respectful, but gave off a lonely, needy vibe. Son is freaked out and exhausted.

Ugh.

Will certainly add him to the prayer list today.

But you may want to consider purchasing a couple of condos/apartments near the school, both for him to live in, and as rental properties. Perhaps he could manage the other property while he goes to school in return for room and board from you and your husband? Just an idea. One I wish my parents had done while I was in school.

347 Our son was the first person the kid met when he moved here from NY, and told us at a cookout "Your son is the nicest person I've ever met. He's introduced me to all his friends and made me feel welcome down here." Now he's turned stalkerish. Son's other friends are freaked out by the guy.

Son should have never moved in with him.

There are a lot of people out there that are what I call functional disordered. This kid is one of them.

In the big picture, it's probably good that your son has had this experience early, so that he can realize that there are people who are psychologically messed up and watch out for them. I work in an industry with a number of "creative" people who are functional disordered, and it's difficult to deal with. These are not nice people and they can make your life miserable.

It's about personality disorders. Many people have certain tendencies (being a perfectionist, or being slightly obsessive compulsive) but when that is taken to the extreme, it's a personality disorder.

These are the people that you meet that you think are "quirky" and "difficult." It' not that at all. They have a personality disorder, and need to be fixed. BTW... many cannot, even with therapy and medication.

Yeah, medication tends to be quite ineffective, so pee-sigh-chiatrists often pretend personality disorders don't exist. The mental illnesses for which medication is useful, those exist.

Anyhoo, the reason therapy tends to be ineffective is more because the clients have a love/hate relationship with their diagnosis! Really. So... they come for help, then they drift off, because they like the highs of the emotional roller coaster.

If somebody really commits to changing though, it can be done.

Jane, best of luck to your son. The post reminded me of when I was in my early to mid 20's and wanting to be in my own place, and the hassle of dealing with roommates out of necessity.

Roommates who indicated an interest and faded away. Roommates who made commitments and then backed out. Roommates who fell in love, got married, and moved out a few months after we moved into a house.

Phone calls from a neighbor telling me, "Don't look to your left, but there is someone on your fire escape peering in at you and your girlfriend RIGHT NOW." Another time, different apartment, looking out a curtain at a date's apartment to see a face leering back at me. Went out to throw the creep off the fire escape headfirst and was left with half his shirt in my hand when he jumped down a flight of stairs.

A housecleaner on her first day on the job getting bombed, staggering around the yard cursing at neighbors and passing out in the front yard of the rental house.

Tons of financial struggles.

Nothing as grinding as what your son is facing, but wow, that whole thing of getting rolling in your young life can be a crazy journey. Thinking of you and him.

430 With respect to the autopilot and the Fitzgerald - it was suggested that someone could have programmed the autopilot onto a course that would produce a collision.

Point should be made that in order for that to work, the nefarious course programmer would have to assume that the Fitzgerald, with all of its radars, would never see a big slow cargo ship coming, and would also have to assume that the Fitzgerald would never bother to take any evasive action when they saw that a collision was looming.

Only an idiot would have assumed that the bridge crew of the Fitzgerald would behave so idiotically. If you remember Austin Powers, this kind of collision is much like the scene where some henchmen sees a Steamroller slowly coming towards him, and just stands there shouting NOOOOO as he is slowly run over.

The Morning Report 6/23/17

repeal.jpg

Good morning, kids. The weekend is here once again and the top story is the rolling out of the Senate Obamacare Repeal/Replace Bill. As expected, there's no repeal and the replace component essentially anchors the original 2010 monstrosity in our lives for all time. On a positive note, McYertle apparently does not have votes to move it forward and there will be amendments. Thankfully, Cruz, Paul and Lee are in the mix so that at least some of the more odious, economy-killing, freedom-killing aspects of this disaster are removed. To be sure, no matter what, parts of the original are here to stay. As someone once said, the one thing that you can never destroy is an entrenched government bureaucracy, but perhaps it can be made as benign as possible. Obviously, the Democrats are fueling the fires of more violence claiming millions will die in the streets if it passes. I would not be surprised if someone, somewhere steps forward and threatens GOP lawmakers with death if the bill becomes law. And Obama opened his cake-hole because the one good thing about this is that if it passes, there goes the single most important legacy of his 8-year reign of error. Amazingly, he's so wrapped up in his own little world that he doesn't appreciate the fact that a good sized chunk of his original namesake poison will no doubt continue to course through the veins of an atrophying America, perhaps forever. Meh, screw him to Hell.

If you look past our rage at and disappointment in the party that is allegedly ours, the Democrats are in absolute free fall. The Robert Mugabe Leadership of octogenarians has no clue about how to deal with PDT and who he represents; us. Their puppet masters in the MFM are equally clueless as are the cadres in academia and the culture complex. To them, it's all about the messaging and not their message itself. As Ive said before, if we only had a fraction of support from the GOP, the Democrats could become less relevant than "The Rent Is Too Damn High." But as we have seen from this insult from McYertle and Ryno, their interest is in preserving the power of the State. What a crying shame. But, thank G-d for Donald J. Trump.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

This is starting to sound like they took the broken down old Yugo that was Obamacare, slapped on a band-aid, and gave it a new coat of paint - while painting over the band-aid.

It's still a Yugo. It's still held together by a band-aid.

19 Prayers for Nancy as Several Dems Plotting Her Ouster

Amen.

A scrawny little brain-addled woman and the Democrats are too chicken-shit to stage a coup against her. The problem is that Obama 'fundamentally transformed' the Democrats into a party that can't win elections anymore.

Until they face that reality, it doesn't matter whether Nancy stays or goes. I hope she stays, just for the lulz as she slips further into dementia.

The GOP never expected to win in 2016. Trump perhaps was more of a shock to them than the Democrats, or at least as much of a shock.

All the repeal bills from the previous 7 years were sham/kabuki/bukkake theater.

The GOP lives and breathes in DC. They want power and money just as much as the Democrats, albeit perhaps not for ideological purposes. To willingly dismantle that gravy train of ill-gotten booty would be inconceivable to them.

They're not stupid. Far from it. They're corrupt and greedy. Period.

48 Healthcare is hard in large part because of WWII policies that allowed companies to use insurance to hold onto employees while wages were frozen. The idea of insurance (risk abatement strategy for known risks) was undermined by simply using the term to mean 3rd party reimbursement. They are trying to protect so many people who are high risk and can't reasonably afford premiums commensurate with their risk category. For example, two-thirds of health care costs go to behavior-related illnesses. That's a lot of pre-existing conditions. Plus the baby-boomers are retiring and going on Medicare, which is underfunded by about $70 trillion. Plus, it's very easy to rack of hundreds of thousands of dollars in bills for cancer treatments or a really bad accident. It's a big task with so many interest groups (doctors, drug companies, hospitals, insurance companies, employers, etc.).

If all the GOP were to offer up was a law that would allow insurers to offer up any plan to anyone who lived anywhere, that would be enough to correct everything that's wrong with "healthcare"

55 #36 This job is poisoning me. I have to get out.

That's not good for mind, body or soul. You should try working your network, hard. Things are opening up and there are opportunities for the first time in a long time. And when working your network it's good to remember that the best leads always seem to come from the most unexpected places. Don't be afraid to hit up anybody and everybody. I must have contacted, by e-mail or phone at least 70 people last time I was searching. But the job I had was KILLING me and I had to get out.

One that I very nearly chickened out of contacting was the owner of a business I had worked for long ago, who had retired young to Florida with his millions. Except that unknown to me, just before I contacted him, he had unretired, bought a new company and was looking for employees, and he had set it up so everyone would work from home, so me living half a continent away didn't matter. He liked me as an employee before and immediately called me and hired me on the spot. Raise and better bennies, and infinitely better company to work for.

Lesson learned. You never know who's going to come through for you.

If anything is going to be fixed, we've got to get back to the concept of "insurance" as being something that is used to protect individuals from unforeseen catastrophic loss.

Insurance doesn't pay for shingles on a house getting old and curling. It pays when a tree crashes through the roof.

Insurance doesn't pay for oil changes and new tires on a car, it pays when it gets crashed.

For some reason, everyone in the country has the wrong idea of what insurance should pay for in the health field.

Yep. I would buy catastrophic coverage with a $25k-$50k deductible and pay for everything else out of pocket. Just like I do now, except currently I'm without the benefit of insurance if something really bad happened.

67 July 1st, Chicago's great citizens can start paying the "soda tax". 2 liter bottle will be taxed 67 cents.

Any nonalcoholic beverage that's either sugar- or artificially sweetened
will be taxed, which means fountain drinks as well as bottled and
canned beverages. The tax will apply to soda and diet soda,
ready-to-drink sweetened coffees and teas, sports and energy drinks, and
juice products that aren't 100 percent fruit or vegetable juice, among
other beverages.

That will solve all problems Chicago has (Cook County).

I just went to Drudge to read about that (fashion!) and the female designer they showcase, who is Muslim herself and happens to have the last name of Ramadan, also has "dressed" Jennifer Lopez.

I will go you one better than that. So as everyone knows DeBlasio, mayor of New York, has now solved all of New York City's problems with crime, transit, crippling taxes, joblessness, garbage, homelessness, etc. You know how we know this? Because the City has enough money to undertake and maintain a citywide advertising campaign to ~ get this ~ educate people about wildlife in New York City. Complete with glossy posters, bus shelter ads, etc. The hook line? The posters show a picture of, say, a raccoon, with an arrow pointing towards it saying "this is a New Yorker too." So, you see, New York City not only has enough money to solve all its problems ~ it has enough money to admit animals as citizens of NYC! If I were that frickin raccoon I would file for welfare. If Hillary had been President Rocky might have gotten it to. It s a certainty that DeBlas would give it to him for sure.

Yes. Their message is always that the (fill in the blank) Republican plan will kill and cripple millions or simply destroy the Universe. Why use that strategy? The Dems do polls and focus groups for every proposed major talking point campaign. So, Pelosi and Lieawatha and the rest KNOW their base will buy that bullshite. Evil Democratic politicians are only a part of this country's political problems; the low-information voters are a larger part, IMHO. Not sure how to even begin attacking and fixing that part, given the schools and media nowadays.

I hear ya. I was pretty involved with the early Tea Party online. If there was a Roman name, odds were pretty decent it was me under one of my many guises. I was busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest, and I always advocated for it to break away and become its own party, not to trust the swamp creatures.

I was right, and history's lesson bears me out as well.

149 I briefly mentioned my interactions with Jonah Goldberg in the ONT, but I'll go into more detail.

This was back quite a few years, before his Editor-at-large title and really before NRO had a million sub-blogs. Jonah was mainly doing the G-file and some contributions to The Corner (which was very new at the time). He wasn't an asshole and indeed was very approachable and down to earth.

He posted something on the blog there about a student at Andover (Philips Academy) who had plagiarized one of his columns...it was the column where he correctly complained about conservatives being called Nazis. The student lifted the column word for word and it ended up in the student paper. He also supplied a link. A couple of hours later he would take the post down, but not before I (and I'm sure lots of other people) had seen it.

Anyway, I followed the link and, yep, total ripoff. What I found after a bit of poking around was that this student lifted ANOTHER one of Jonah's columns, which was a followup he had written about response to the first column.

Well, being young(er), I decided WTF and I wrote a letter to the Philipian saying that I admired this student's writing abilities, and it was clear that he was something special because Jonah Goldberg was plagiarizing him and they should consider suing the bastard.

I then wrote a note to Jonah saying I thought it was nuts, then asked him why he took the post down. Jonah responded that National Review had called the school and was going to stay out of it. We had a few exchanges and again and he was very nice and all. He certainly had grounds to be all pissy, but he wasn't. Subsequent to that when I'd write him about something I disagreed with, even mildly, he was nothing but gracious and intellectually honest. Like quite a few others, I rated a few mentions in The Corner in his posts and again, was very gracious and did not stoop to ad hominem or dishonesty in his responses.



Interesting postscript to this story. Turns out Andover has a very strict honor code, and it also turns out that, dammit, I was the ONLY ONE other than Jonah who alerted the school of the issue. The school therefore enforced the honor code and expelled the student. Because the Internet was new I had my real name and contact info in the form I sent to the Philipian, which somehow ended up in the possession of this student's mother. She tried calling me AT WORK (which I ignored) and also left messages AT HOME, wanting me to call her back.

One day at work she calls me again and I figure I'd better take the call. She starts off asking me when I graduated from Andover. I said I didn't. So she then asks me why I'm reading their newspaper. I decided to have a little fun and said I was drawn to it because of the excellence of the publication and the quality of the writing. She said yes, her son was instrumental in all of that, to which I said I was surprised about the plagiarism then. She said it was a mistake of his, he was very tired and under a lot of pressure that one time. I then said "well, once sure...but he did it more than once, didn't he?" She got mad. .

I then was treated to a harangue about how dare I get involved because I'm just some loser who is going to be working for her son one day, how I'll never amount to anything, and I'm just some nobody. She then hangs up the phone.

I hope she felt better after that. I haven't had him yet as an executive in my company, but I'm still looking for him.

This has potential, real potential. My big question is: What friggen part of 'repeal Obamacare' to these assclowns not understand?Step one: The affordable care act is repealed in its entirety. A one sentence bill to accomplish mountains.Step two: See Kreplach aboveStep three: Encourage doctors to form health cooperatives; $50-100/month per person or family (the numbers will likely be adjusted) and all your issues are covered at the co-op. This model will eventually starve the beast of insurance and bring prices down for the consumer, increase bottom line profit for the doctors and will give the doctors back their lives.Insurance does not exist to provide payment for healthcare, they exist to collect premiums to the greatest degree and deny/slow pay/under pay claims to the greatest possible degree. They do not contribute to healthcare, they are parasites.

If being gay is innate, why are they proud?. I'm not proud about being straight nor would I want to march in a parade for "heterosexual pride. Better to have pride in things like being a kind person. or volunteering on a suicide help line. feeding the hungry,being a good parent, excelling in school and being a person of hard work and integrity in your profession. In that case. it would be better to call it "I just happen to be gay but I'm proud of who I am a person aside from my sexual orientation parade" but that wouldn't fit on a banner.

I think if you instituted real free market reforms as some have stated above while keeping Medicare in place, the former would offer so much more and cheaper that Medicare would ultimately die off. Of course, government programs never die, but the third rail nature of killing it off would have been neutralized, no?

They can charge all they want but they get X. In return for accepting your plan they have to comply with thousands of regulations that are extremely costly and stupid like asking you questions that are not relevant. If all the doctors would just stop accepting payment from plans, they could stop complying with mandates and go back to practicing medicine. Ugh

267 The fact that only four senators oppose the new health care bill should be a giant clue.

This isn't about what "they" want. It's about the best we can do for the country.

Once again, they are grandstanding by taking their arguments which failed in private, public.

Negotiate to improve your position? Absolutely. Sink an entire piece of legislation because it doesn't have all your personal aspects. Total, clown car on fire FAIL.

I had a similar experience. We spent summers in the Catskills when I was a kid. For sone reason, I had to see a doctor and mom took me to Dr. Wolfgang Leitner z"l in South Fallsburg. It was hot and he had his shirtsleeves rolled up. When I asked him about the smudged numbers tattooed on his forearm, mom was absolutely mortified and clopped me hard on the back of my head.

After we left, she explained the meaning of the tattoo. She was of the generation where things Holocaust-related were still taboo and not discussed in public.

271 "You have to eliminate the welfare and no pays. Otherwise, free market reforms won't happen. I'll still be getting billed $88.00 for two
Tylenols to help recoup the liver transplant for the hobo."

There was a piece in the LA Slimes more than a decade ago about a young Mexican peasant girl who had come illegally into the US specifically to get medical care. She had an autoimmune disease that attacks the liver.

UCLA promptly gave her a liver transplant. At American public expense. Knowing she wasn't a citizen. It didn't take. So they gave her another one. That failed. So they gave her *another*. Which the story didn't go in to, but that probably blew up too.

Each individual transplant op was fabulously expensive.

I have no problem with America giving top flight medical care for free to the world's poor. I have a problem with our paying for it.

Under the lefty principles that "health care is a human right", and that governments exist to ensure human rights, foreign governments should be explicitly formally dunned for every penny of these costs, and if they won't pay, tariffs and the like should go up sharply to pay for it.

Hell, with that rule imposed and enforced, the Mexican government would be building a wall to keep their people from coming here and racking up big tabs at the hospital.

272 Yes, for starters they need to repeal EMTALA (the federal law that requires hospital ER's to treat anybody who shows up, regardless of citizenship, and regardless of ability to pay).

So long as hospitals have to function as "free" medical care providers for every pregnant illegal alien and deadbeat drug addict who shows up at the door, the rest of us are going to have to pick up the cost for the government's "generosity."

They can charge all they want but they get X. In return for accepting your plan they have to comply with thousands of regulations that are extremely costly and stupid like asking you questions that are not relevant. If all the doctors would just stop accepting payment from plans, they could stop complying with mandates and go back to practicing medicine. Ugh

When I used to go to visit friends in Costa Rica, I found out that it was the plastic surgery capital of the world. Phenomenal doctors (virtually all American) and the prices were much cheaper because they avoided US regulations and worked on a cash basis.

True, plastic surgery is considered a luxury, but the cash-only model and healthcare coops is the way to go. If Obamacare does remain, or continued and growing governmental control on that industry, then offshore medical treatment or "underground" in the States will be the wave of the future. If it becomes cheaper, I don't care.

@36 Thanks for link to Thomas Flyer, the stuff of legend.
Made in Buffalo, Thomas was the winner of the 1908 around-the-world race, and was the subject of many paintings by the greatest automotive artist, Peter Helck. Sure like to see him on the Art Thread sometime.

One time at Meadowbrook, I had the chance to buy a sculpture based on his painting of the Thomas, heavily over-crewed, crossing Russia. I missed out, one of my few regrets. There was a dustered and goggled guy leaning off the back seat with a pair of binoculars. You'd think he was looking to see if anyone was gaining on them, and after looking it up I learned that's sort of right.

They were running on the crossties of the Trans-Siberian Railway. He was looking back to see if the train was coming. Now that's Motoring.

That's not entirely accurate. The ER has to screen for the presence of an emergency medical condition (including active labor) and provide treatment to stabilize the emergency medical condition if one is present. It's still expensive and a burden but it doesn't require treating everyone for everything just because they present at the ER.

Even on a cash basis, there's damned little actual willing-seller willing-buyer capitalism going on.

Ted Kennedy died of a brain tumor. Before he did, his doctors tried an experimental drug. It didn't help. But it might have helped.

The drug in question was regulated by the FDA, who had not yet cleared it for use in humans. Teh Swimmer received a special one-time-only compassionate-use federal government waiver to try to save his life. For obvious reasons.

If you or I had the same brain tumor, and wanted the same drug, and had our doctors recommending we do so, we would have been told by FDA's bureaucracy to pound sand on our way to the funeral home.

That ain't capitalism. That's transacting our business, including the business of our living and dying, at the sufferance and whim of Our Betters in government.

If SCOTUS ever decides health care is a right for US citizens, that is the day the USA as we know it will truly die. Because it is a simple jump from there to declare "good health" is a right. Otherwise a right to health care is meaningless - a right to what and how much health care?

If "good health" becomes a right, then you can toss away the 1st and 2nd Amendments, and probably more. People will get doctors to certify that "hateful speech" is making them depressed and anxious.

338 I don't get, in the O-care context, saying "thank G-d for Donald J. Trump." On THIS issue he is every bit as bad as the turtle. Sure, his war on the lemming media is great - both fun and of genuine benefit to the country. But the guy has never been reliable on this issue, and face it, he IS part of the reason we're getting this "Obamacare Forever" package. If he were sound on this issue, the wimps would know better than to send this to him. But as it is, he'll sign it and praise it.

Make no mistake, this is a grave problem. The whole thing is horrible policy. I can buy the argument that there's nothing we can really do about it, and that Trump is doing great on other fronts. But don't try to tell me he's not one of the ones behind us being fed this shit.

Oh, I don't mind at all. Without getting too deeply into the weeds, you know I work in the pathology / histology department of a hospital. Yesterday was a series of outside complaints about other hospitals requesting materials that weren't sent, with several of our in-house physicians going batty and my own immediate bosses giving me the fish-eye, as well.

Problem being it's only my word against theirs that I never got the requests in the first place.

So it was that added to a write-up last week (which I won't get into), the replacement I trained deciding to quit after one week, as well as personality clashes and my upcoming 3-year anniversary of the department firing two people and making me take over their jobs including my own.

I'm worn out, I don't want to be here and after 16 years, I don't want to do what I'm doing here somewhere else. The major problem, is, I don't know what I want to do other than be retired.

Right now, I would like a nice little foursome -

Truthfully, that's one of my nightmare scenarios-being removed. It's one thing if a voluntarily submit my orders because I joined another denomination (The Orthodox priest seems to feel that one day I will join that church) but to be removed under charges-ugggh. I always feel queasy when you hear of that happening to some clergy person. It makes us all look bad. Lord have mercy! So far, anyway, they cannot remove me for getting some paperwork in late.

Agreed. Even though this is Obamacare-Lite, the Left will never accept it. The bill will, psychologically, end the permanence of TFGcare. What comes next will remain an open question. Single payer's just not the slammed dunk that is put out there. Those 65 years and older will feel ripped off.

Funny thing, just a few weeks ago, Drudge linked a Hollywood Reporter article about how Depp is practically broke, and is likely to remain that way because he refuses to sell off some of his real estate and art collection to raise cash.

The thing that struck me is that according to the article, all of his real estate is basically just homes and vacation getaways. Something like 6-7 of them. And not one piece of income-producing property.

406 "so what's the point?"
...about Obamacare and Obamacare repeal.

The people in DC swamp want to solve the economic depression that they are largely responsible for by spending other people's money. Every time they raise taxes they end up in worse shape. Obamacare (and cap-and-trade) are things they believe will get them more of other people's money to spend. The difference between Republican politicians and Democrat politicians is that Republicans usually have better personal finances. This means that Republicans know better and that Democrats don't have a clue.

It would be obvious that we are in a Greater Depression if it wasn't for EBT cards, SNAP and section-eight housing.

Things are coming to a head because DC has demanded that peons approve loans to deadbeats and then has made examples of peons for making bad loans.

Most large Companies and plenty of small Companies have angered the very people they need. Most Companies are nominally run by flakes and fakes.

All the Companies and Agencies of the world are nominally functioning because of the horse which is about to be sent to the glue factory (read Orwell's Animal Farm for context).

415 Pass the bill. You cannot get a 'full repeal' with a reconciliation bill. Anyone who is saying that is a liar. That would mean they'd have to start the process all over with a new bill. NO THANKS.

Stop listening to Rand Paul. He is going to get on board. He wants to put his stamp on it in some way. So does Cruz. It's about making a name for yourself, and they see their opportunity with this bill where every vote counts.

This bill gets rid of the mandates. PERIOD. It also gets rid of almost all the taxes. That is what we want. That is what we will get.

Leave the rest up to HHS.

Dr. Price was on Hannity last night. He wants this bill passed. He is a doctor. He knows what he is doing. Trust in Dr. Price to fix this disaster. All he needs is an end to the mandate and watch things change quickly.

Tired of people freaking out over everything when Trump wins every single time.

"Try new things" they said. "It'll be fun" they said. Well, I'm trying a new thing. Lets see if it's fun or a disaster.

I was really into REM and saw them twice in the early '80's and they actually made pretty good music right up to the end. But Stipe is a full-fledged shit-Lefty with a long white beard, a nose ring and horn-rimmed glasses. He looks like a smelly homeless guy even though he's a multimillionaire.

I'm not sure anymore.

Back even before his editor-at-large gig at NRO, he was a lot more approachable via email since the whole G-file and blog thing was so new. He and I traded a few emails (I hasten to add I had no unusual access like this...Goldberg was just good at answering emails...) and he was a bit different back then. It's hard to describe. I don't know if his marriage changed him, or fatherhood did, or something, but there has been a change and I'm very disappointed in it. He turned into what he used to make fun of.

Amostl of his songs except for "Can't get no satisfaction" are self aggrandizing as if he's saying. I'm such a sexy stud. "She's under my thumb" O.K. Mick.

Jonah just falls in the George Will "coarse and vulgar man" Trump hate.

The Never Trump crowd made realize something about "our" conservative intelligentsia. They and I are really very far apart.

Accurately plotting political position requires far more than one dimension, many more in fact. At any one time, "left-right" just aligns along some axis in that multi-dimensional space. And some axis that happens to be relevant to the current state of affairs.

So, since the '80s, my projection along that current axis was close to George Will and all that. But really, we're very apart in the higher space.

That gets exposed when there is a "realignment", and that's what Trump and Trumpism is.

Note they are of the same elite stock as the lefties. Same schools, same culture. They hate us just as much as the leftists do. "Coarse and vulgar" commoners, we are.

178 Put it this way - the 1970s were pretty crap, but we did get a lot of good Bowie out of them. And Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours".

From the 1990s, I suppose the equivalent would be MBV's "Loveless" and maybe NIN's "Downward Spiral".

179 J. Edgar, the real one, Hoover, did indeed have enough dirt on every president and probably ever member of Congress that was of an import. Not to mention all the other Washington power elite. They were scared to death of him.

So, Jonah's idea that it is unthinkable is a joke. Every president since JFK wanted to shitcan Hoover, but they dared not. LBJ waived the mandatory retirement age of 70 to avoid Hoover's wrath.

And he died in office under Tricky Dick.

193 Off on on for about a week my son has been playing some song by "The Rolling Stones" with a lyric, "Don't play with me or you'll play with fire." If i hear it for much longer I may bang my head against a wall. I've decided I don't like Mick Jagger, although he evidently keeps young by still performing and his fans enjoy him. Amostl of his songs except for "Can't get no satisfaction" are self aggrandizing as if he's saying. I'm such a sexy stud. "She's under my thumb" O.K. Mick. You had a lot of women and lots of money,,,,,,and I'm supposed to care...why exactly?
---

LOL. "Play with Fire" is one of my very favorite Stones songs. That's really early Stones, from the late 60's. Same era as "Get Off Of My Cloud," "19th Nervous Breakdown" and "Paint it Black."

They write about a lot of different things; I found out the song "Bitch" is about heroin addiction. Then there's "You Can't Always Get What You Want" and "Sympathy for the Devil." The annoying Mick sex songs have just registered more with you since they're overplayed.

I really like a lot of the Stones music, however, I cannot stand watching Mick perform live. It's like he's a skinny human rooster.

Of course you have to ignore the silly lyrics. Just like with Tori Amos - good music, silly lyrics.

Eno best summed up the state of music lyrics and meaning in Sky Saw (Another Green World).

Which brings up the fact that the best music to come out of the 70s was Roxy Music and Eno's solo albums.

And, as far as the 70s go? I was there, in the first decade of my astonishingly long-lasting prime, and I can tell you, the BeeGees OWNED the 70s. We used to practice our disco dancing in the mirror and go to the gay dances, it was fab! Otherwise, we're talking Gram Parsons and the Burrito Bros. Or Little Feat. Lotta good stuff happened in the 70s. You just can't see it from here.

Kansas was one of the first four state targeted. There was no rational reason to do that.
The UC-Davis debate team cancelled their appearance at the national finals held in Lawrence, Kansas this year. Lawrence, Kansas! It's a wretched hive of scum and villainy & in the most liberal county of Kansas.

Like everywhere, university towns of more that 50,000 in the metro area are all pretty liberal in policy, and that is especially true in Lawrence.
So even their data is wrong. Plus, Kansans are a pretty easy-going group even in the rural areas. Hey, they put up with me.

I'd like to ask the Horde's prayers for my brother, who recently had his second leg amputated below the knee (diabetic complications). He's been in intensive rehab hoping he can get a second prosthesis soon but he said his insurance won't pay for any more therapy and he is really, really depressed about it. Usually he's pretty upbeat but he did not sound good tonight...

335 I've always been of the opinion that there is good music to be found in every decade of the "rock and roll era". 50s, 60s, 70s and so on.

There's also a lot of crap.

I also recognize the talent of artists who I'm not really a fan of. I don't hate Dylan, but I'd rather hear others sing what he wrote most of the time.

John Mellencamp, however, lives up to his nickname, "Little Bastard". When I have to play his songs on my show, I turn the studio monitors down until they're over.

The usage of "out of pocket" to mean out of reach, incognito, goes back to at least 1908, and it's a Southernism.

There are three meaning. The first simply means "paid out of petty cash" and variations.

There is a third one, which is Brit, that means "broke". Ie, "I'm out of pocket", means flat broke.

343 Baby Sister Update:

From her friends Kris, Lynne and Lisa (who flew in from Minnesota to visit with her):

"Yesterday we played some games on Joyce's iPad, she did math problems, and we took her shopping. She was in heaven with Nutter Butter cookies and Blue Moon beer we found at Walmart! She's been asking to go swimming, so after lunch we got her in the pool and she sat on the steps for a while, walked in the water (with a little help) and played water basketball. Hubby made another delicious dinner and we worked on some of her activity books.

She can write and spell very well! Joyce continues to amaze us with her positive attitude, her endless gratitude toward anyone who helps her, and the grace she demonstrates while going through this difficult disease. She is teaching us all so much. We all love her and are grateful for every minute with her."

Please pray that she continues on a path toward healing.

[To my fellow Hordelings, thank you all in advance for your prayers and well-wishes for my sister and our family.]

The origin of the "icognito" meaning of the phrase was apparently first seen in official print (whatever they dictionaries use as official citations) in 1908.

Agreed. It's why I don't play "Disco Duck" on our classic hits station. "But it was a number one song!", someone told me once.

418 I came of age in the mid-to-late 70s, but liked 60s music better at the time. I think the 60s were a more innovative decade, but I can accept the argument that the 70s were better for variety. Also, some of the musical ideas that were pioneered in the 60s came to fruition and were more fully developed in the 70s.

Usually he's pretty upbeat but he did not sound good tonight...

Posted by: Cosmic Charlie at June 22, 2017 10:39 PM


There was a ton of good shit coming out of both sides of the atlantic during that time. The late 80's is when things started to get a bit iffy and stereotyped "80's" kicked in. The major labels had adjusted to combat the indie onslaught from the late 70's to mid 80's and there was an increasing amount of formula stuff. MTV didn't help things.

472 PASADENA >> What began as an investigation into public urination at a Pasadena Gold Line station on Wednesday led deputies to seize two guns, high-capacity magazines, suppressors and a machete from the suspect's duffel bag, authorities said.

Deputies first approached a man about 9 a.m. after spotting a man relieving himself in a planter along the sidewalk outside the Sierra Madre Villa Gold Line Station at Madre Street and Foothill Boulevard, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said.

The deputies confronted the man about the offense, and the suspect provided them with what turned out to be a false name, according to Deputy Katherine Zubo of the sheriff's Transit Policing Division, who took part in the arrest. The man was carrying a duffel bag with him.

A search of the suspect's bag turned up a loaded AR-15-style rifle, fitted with two 30-round magazines and a suppressor, as well as a .40-caliber pistol with a high-capacity magazine and a suppressor and a large machete-style knife, Sheriff Jim McDonnell said. The bag also contained a notebook full of writings and a Bible. He was booked for weapons violations.

I'm a sucker for 70's bubblegum. It was awesome. At the time, I was about 50's and 60's stuff and didn't really appreciate the 70's. It didn't dawn on me until the 80's that I was being spoiled by quality and quantity in the 70's and that even the throwaway stuff was pretty good. The 60's may have had greater high points and innovation, but the 70's had breadth. Those K-Tel compilations of cheese were a goldmine of second or third tier stuff that have a ton of charm and feeling. Much more so than the 60's throways (with exceptions).

"Jerry has a house in Kansas

Got me thinking. Two friends tried to get Senator Roberts thrown off the ballot for not living in Kansas. The deep state counterattacked, and lied to cover up. My Friends were threatened.

About Jerry Moran: He didn't run a bank, he was staff. Mostly a lawyer and politico. He does live in town.


I have no clue. I don't know details about 44 congresscritters (or at least not 44 whose names alliterate properly for the song).

I was looking for a republican (did you notice the verses alternate parties?) with a name ending in y to pair with Andy Harris, and he was listed on Wiki with his profession "banker". I have no idea if he was never late either. Sorry.

498 you are right, the 80s that everyone usually thinks of is 83 to 88 or so. the 70s were still seeping into the 80s until 83, despite my efforts to hunt them down with The Shovel, and the 90s started seeping in from 88.

That's about right. Another radio programmer had a theory once that makes sense to me about cycles in pop music. A new sound takes root, becomes more popular in a few years, then dominates. After people burn out on that, there's a "doldrums" period before the next cycle begins. Each cycle lasts about ten years, and since the rock and roll era is generally pegged as starting in 1955, the mid-decade being the start of a new cycle makes sense.

I'm not sure that theory still holds today. The internet seems to have speeded that up.

AJ does have some gated subdivisions, and I am sure there are condos. No high-rise buildings, and you are 10 minutes from open desert, and 30 minutes from Sky Harbor.

Instead of a condo, you might want to consider a "park model" mobile home in a 50+ park. Many of these are gated, well-maintained, and have a pool and other amenities. Inhabited mostly by snowbirds and other retirees, they tend to be to expensive for "trailer trash" folks.

I don't remember the exact quote, but Allen Ginsburg said something similar. The "Fifties" started around 1955, and the "Sixties" around 1965. In 1975 we were getting the first glimmerings of both punk rock and disco.

While stationed at Ft. Devens (late 1993 to early 1994), I had a roommate that would play that song all the time. I told her to stop, but she wouldn't. So I got her back two months later. Her "boyfriend/soon-to-be baby's father" had transferred to Pensacola and had stopped all communication with her. So every day she would come into the room crying about how he hadn't called or written to her. I would play Toni Braxton's "Seven Whole Days" nonstop. Needless to say she moved out of the room a few weeks later.

Is Joyce able to walk on her own. I'm so happy for you that Joyce is out and about enjoying her life. Saw FIL last week and he's in a wheel chair and Can only walk with a walker and assistance. I wish his wife would let him enjoy the things he is still able to, like good food instead of worrying about fat, salt, sugar, etc. for fucks sake she won't even let him have real ice cream. She bought some half fat, no sugar "ice cream". When she asked who wanted ice cream, I was thinking, "that's not fucking ice cream, I don't know what it is, but it's not ice cream". It was really depressing since it also felt like she didn't want us there and seemed to be trying to stop us from seeing him. We were there for 5 days and only got to see him 3 times, the last time was literally for 5 minutes when we just showed up unannounced to say good bye on the last day since she basically told us not to come over.

565 John Mellencamp, however, lives up to his nickname, "Little Bastard". When I have to play his songs on my show, I turn the studio monitors down until they're over.

His nickname is "cougar". For him to live up to that, he'd have to be attracted to young men. Like Emmanuel Macron's wife. That would be a treat: John Mellencamp and his hubby as the first couple in 2020.

566 So, Don Kirshners son, Ricky Kirsher, is an absolute nut job who has his own production company. It's almost impossible for him to make a decision, at least that's what I hear.

He was the producer of the DNC national convention this year, and does the super bowl halftimes. I suspect he also produced Obama and the Roman Columns when that happened.

You know, maybe it was someone elses horse, and when he rented/borrowed/stole it he forgot to ask the name.

He couldn't re-name the horse, because the horse already had a name that he, the rider, did not know. And the horse probably wouldn't respond to a different name. He had a name, dammmit!

I will say though, MTV probably had a lot to do with some of the metal genre splitting off and evolving into that god forsaken hair band shit.

637 Horse is slang for heroin, in case you did not know that.

I think "A Horse with no Name" was about trying to go cold turkey and quit heroin.
But that's not what people heard when the song was popular. It was just some goofy pop song.

"Jane" is another heroin slang (ie, Jane's Addiction).
"Sweet Jane" thought it was a love song about a girl named Jane, but was about using heroin to cut the boredom of life.
Heroin, or why my 66 year old sister and her husband are raising their two grandchildren.

Dickie Betts wrote that song, at the time he was having regular back door meetups with the Boz Skagg's girlfriend, since he was out of town a lot. She wanted him to write a song for her, like girls who hang out with musicians do. Well, he couldn't very well name the song for her, but they used to go do the nasty in a nearby cemetery on a blanket, since it was usually a pretty quiet place.

The name on the closest gravestone to their favorite make out spot was Elizabeth Reed.

Yeah no doubt. For me, metal started losing its way around '84. Iron maiden was phoning it in with that Somewhere in Time album. Although there was a few good tunes, it wasn't the maiden I was used to. Judas priest's turbo album was pretty much a warning of the garbage to follow. When they did that ubergeigh "parental Guidence" I closed the book on them. Speed metal and thrash came on the scene, but a lot of that was mindless dribble, yet some was very good. Still, it wasn't really metal like the Ronny James Dio era of Sabbath, or Accept, or Metal church, or earlier Iron maiden, etc. It split, the heavier dudes went speed metal, and the freaks went hair metal.

Of course I went speed metal. lol

The Arlington Theater in Santa Barbara has a rather distinctive bell tower that looks like a hypodermic needle. Local lore (almost certainly bullshit) is that the architect was a morphine addict in the 1930s and designed the bell tower to resemble his obsession.

728 I listened to an interview with Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull one time. I assumed they had to be zooted on something but apparently not.

He claimed they never used drugs, but rather that their music was fueled by Lowenbrau.

On a separate note, when I was in college I asked this girl if she had ever heard Jethro Tull and she said "Oh yeah, I love him!".

I knew I was getting laid that night from that moment on.

738 Funny story (to me, anyway). Good college buddy of mine that was
heavily into music (like me) was hanging out drinking with me and my
wife and started talking about the "greatest drug songs". Wife - more
than a little naive - was blown away by some of the songs we talked
about.



So me, being an asshole, convinced her that Starland Vocal Band's
"Afternoon Delight" was about heroin. I even did the "skyrocket in
flight" while holding syringe upright, pressing plunger to remove air,
then "Afternoon Delight!" while mock-slamming needle into my arm.



you had to be there. actually the song is about fucking

740 Hunter is an absolute genius, and an underrated songwriter (widely respected, but STILL underrated). He loved riddles, is incredibly well-read - his songs are replete with biblical references, medieval poetry, obscure history etc.. Of course loved metaphors about the Wild West and gambling.

He loved to ask questions with his songs, but sure as shit wasn't interested in answering them for you. Which is why they're so great, you bring your own experience/interpretation to the table.

757 Yeah no doubt. For me, metal started losing its way around '84. Iron maiden was phoning it in with that Somewhere in Time album. Although there was a few good tunes, it wasn't the maiden I was used to. Judas priest's turbo album was pretty much a warning of the garbage to follow. When they did that ubergeigh "parental Guidence" I closed the book on them. Speed metal and thrash came on the scene, but a lot of that was mindless dribble, yet some was very good. Still, it wasn't really metal like the Ronny James Dio era of Sabbath, or Accept, or Metal church, or earlier Iron maiden, etc. It split, the heavier dudes went speed metal, and the freaks went hair metal.

Of course I went speed metal. lol

After Cliff Burton died, it was all down hill for them. "...and Justice for All" was a good album (pity they practically muted Newstead's bass), but the warning signs were there.

The Black Album is when they jumped the shark.

The Jeff Spencer character was supposed to be something of a player, and they'd show him reading "Playboy" occasionally on the show. That was really racy on TV at the time, I'm sure.

There's another completely different song where the chorus goes "Cocaine, all around my brain" which Bob Dylan has performed a number of times. I don't know who wrote that one and I'm getting too tired to look for it. There's one verse that stands out, though:

Cocaine is for horses
It's not for men

They do. The publisher, Take 2, went hard after mods and cheats that affected GTA Online. Well that's what they said. They also shut down a real popular one called Open IV which was supposed to only be able to affect the single player part of GTA, but Take 2 claimed it allowed exploiting the online side.

846 I loved Berserker's parody of The Devil Went Down To Georgia, at comment #120 of the "Why Tossoff Lost" thread from yesterday. Here it is, reposted for those who missed it...

The commies went down to Georgia
they were looking for a seat to steal
they were in a bind, 'cause they're way behind
and America's refusing to kneel

When they came across this man boy
wearing pajamas and diddling his twat
Soros jumped up on Hillary's rump
and said boy let me tell you what

You probably could have guessed it
But I'm a fellow commie too
And were running out of citizens
who we can tax and screw

Now you wear some fine pajamas boy
so give ol' satan his due
I got a mountain of gold to buy your soul
and take trump down a level or two

The boy said my name's jonny ossoff
with his hipster beta grin
maybe girls will like me
and mommy says I'll win

Jonny polish up your speech
and hone your line of shit
the Georgians see just what you are
you carpet bagging twit

If you win, the media will likely kiss your ass
but if you lose we're out a ton of cash


Jonny let them plead their case
and said lets start this show
the media spewed their talking points
hoping jonny's balls would grow
election day is ours said soros with an evil hiss
and as we all expected, it turned out just like this-





The Donald sat back in his chair
and said you're fuckin' done
so pull that thumb out of your ass
cause you're the reason why I won

Leftists flaming out one by one
pissing through cash by the metric ton
America spoke and is letting you know
Hillary as president no, hell no.


when Tuesday night was over
the left knew that it was beat
they stood around in silence
staring at their flaccid meat

The Trumpster said just come on back
just tell me where and when
'cause I told you silly assholes
America will be great again.

http://preview.tinyurl.com/kemh6s3

Related trivia: not only did the Soviets receive repeated, high-quality intelligence warnings from the British, and their own intel network (including the incredible Richard Sorge in Tokyo), but in the 48 hours before the invasion, several highly credible German military personnel defected across the lines with what turned out to be precise info on the start of the operation. Only at, literally, the 11th hour, did Stalin permit some movement and preparation in response to a particularly compelling defector who was debriefed on the eve of the attack.

884 Foo Fighters came about because of Kurt Cobain's suicide. Its a Dave Grohl vehicle. Foo Fighters was his side project. I don't know what would have happened had Cobain not blown his brains out. IMO, FF is a much better band than Nirvana ever was. Grohl seems like a pretty loyal guy though. Don't think he would have left Nirvana had Cobain not committed suicide.

Lou Reed refused to play that song for many years because junkies were misconstruing the lyrics and trying to turn it into some kind of narcotics anthem.

There's an audience recording from the late 70s, I think from NYC's Bottom Line, where he berates the audience for yelling out for him to play it, saying something like: "No. Because too many people don't listen to the lyrics. That song was about the horrors of that drug. I can't deal with knowing people are doing it because of that song."

899 Son of a bitch. Of course I'd have this kind of realization at 5 in the morning. The Left's suicidal alliance with Islam has been a topic I've done a lot of thinking about over the past month. I've come up with a few tenuous explanations, but they always run into a conclusion "The Left is Stupid", which is unsatisfying and likely false.

These people are bugf*** insane, but they're clever as all hell, and there has to be an explanation for how it all works. Here's the pieces, and how they link, as far as I've analyzed it.

1. Iranian Supremacy: Lefties seem to have no special love for the Saudis, but support normalizing relations with Iran. This is enough to indicate a clear preference, even without considering all of the highly-placed Leftists that have connections with Iran. Something about Iran furthers their agenda.

2. Two Religious Cults: Leftism is a cult that believes in no afterlife, and replaces God with an Almighty State that they believe can create an Earthly Paradise. The Iranian regime is an apocalypse cult that believes that it can set in motion a chain of events that will bring about the next revelation (and a perfect world), in the form of the 12th Mahdi. That would normally preclude the two of them working together, unless...

3. The help that harms: The Left must believe that by helping Iran's brand of Islam become the dominant form, and helping them do the things that they believe cause the apocalypse to happen, will result in a massive failure that destroys Islam's credibility. They then have an audience of 1.5 billion people with a destroyed worldview, who will either be easy to direct in their rage, or seek a new vision of perfection, which they can readily promise.

900 Posted by: Cato the Rebel Without a Party at June 23, 2017 06:02 AM (J+mig)

My take, and shorter version: Both pisslam and the proggie left believe in chaos, with both thinking they can control that chaos and come out winners. Throw in that old chestnut, paraphrased, 'the enemy of chaos is my friend', and you can see why the Left allies itself with pisslam.

Posted by: RickZ at June 23, 2017 06:09 AM (OFItL)

901 I had always figured their alliance was an alliance of convenience, to be discarded once the Great Satan as seen by both sides, aka us, are out of the way...

It's even simpler than that. It's one cult trying to disprove the other's dogma, to gain its following.

No, I don't think the left and pisslam are trying to disprove each other's dogma to gain the other's adherents. The left never criticizes pisslam or its policies ('Gays For Palestine' and '[Western] Women For Shari'a', e.g.). But I do agree that it is a marriage of convenience for both. And like I said, they both think they can come out winners. The left, however, are not students of real History. When the Iranian Islamic Revolution occurred back in 1978, one group prominently agitating for Khomeini's return was the Tudeh Party, the Iranian Communist Party; if you look at pictures of the mass rallies from back then, the communist flag was quite visible. Khomeini was more than willing to accept their help in his attaining his revolution. Then, once firmly ensconced in power, The Mad Mullahs put members of the Tudeh Party against a wall and shot them, along with other heretics and infidels, plus those who supported the Shah.

904 "Both pisslam and the proggie left believe in chaos"

One of my favorite recent (2011) novels is "A Fine Likeness" by Sean McLachlan, a supernatural horror tale set in Missouri during the late stages of the Civil War when Bloody Bill Anderson was on the rampage. (You can get it on Amazon). It depicts "chaos, division and disorder" as literally demonic forces, a sort of unholy trinity that some people willingly serve for their own ends, and others serve without realizing it. It's a very intriguing concept to me and it might explain a lot of what is going on now.

Yes, it's in the left game plan. Ally with anyone early, upset the old regime, then knife all your friends in the back and take power. There problem is that the Muslims have their own version of that game with a 1000 years of experience playing it.

And that's why I think that they don't intend for the "knife in the back" to ever look like a knife in the back. They intend to help the Ayatollahs in such a way that it'll destroy their foundation. They want to look like good, clueless allies until, in their moment of triumph, the Ayatollah's followers see that there is no glorious victory, just another day like any other. Then it's time to swoop in, pick up the pieces, and gain a huge recruiting windfall.
