Rising Star and National Treasure Chelsea Clinton is a Rising Star and National Treasure.
Repeat Until the Savage American Public Believes You.

Even the leftwing Vanity Fair has had it up to its neck with the constant media promotion of this Black Hole of Negative Charisma and Achievement.

She manages to mix her mother's narcissism with her father's... well, what can we say she got from her actual father?

Let's say she got her father's ambiguity and tawdry mystery.

Like tribesmen laying out a sacrifice to placate King Kong, news outlets continue to make offerings to the Clinton gods. In The New York Times alone, Chelsea has starred in multiple features over the past few months: for her tweeting (it's become "feisty"), for her upcoming book (to be titled She Persisted), and her reading habits (she says she has an "embarrassingly large" collection of books on her Kindle).

Humblebrag. Not really a grumbleflaunt because she's not making a complaint; she's just trying to disguise her brag as some kind of cutesy self-deprecation.

With Chelsea's 2015 book, It's Your World, now out in paperback, the puff pieces in other outlets -- Elle, People, etc. -- are too numerous to count.

One wishes to calm these publications: You can stop this now. Haven't you heard that the great Kong is no more? Nevertheless, they've persisted. At great cost: increased Chelsea exposure is tied closely to political despair and, in especially intense cases, the bulk purchasing of MAGA hats. So let's review: How did Chelsea become such a threat?

Perhaps the best way to start is by revisiting some of Chelsea's major post-2008 forays into the public eye. Starting in 2012, she began to allow glossy magazines to profile her, and she picked up speed in the years that followed. The results were all friendly in aim, and yet the picture that kept emerging from the growing pile of Chelsea quotations was that of a person accustomed to courtiers nodding their heads raptly. Here are Chelsea's thoughts on returning to red meat in her diet: "I'm a big believer in listening to my body's cravings." On her time in the "fiercely meritocratic" workplace of Wall Street: "I was curious if I could care about [money] on some fundamental level, and I couldn't." On her precocity: "They told me that my father had learned to read when he was three. So, of course, I thought I had to too. The first thing I learned to read was the newspaper." Take that, Click, Clack, Moo.


Chelsea, people were quietly starting to observe, had a tendency to talk a lot, and at length, not least about Chelsea. But you couldn't interrupt, not even if you're on TV at NBC, where she was earning $600,000 a year at the time. "When you are with Chelsea, you really need to allow her to finish," Jay Kernis, one of Clinton's segment producers at NBC, told Vogue. "She's not used to being interrupted that way."

Sounds perfect for a dating profile: I speak at length, and you really need to let me finish. I'm not used to interruptions.

What comes across with Chelsea, for lack of a gentler word, is self-regard of an unusual intensity.

Read the whole thing. He's tired of her.

Many people have become increasingly annoyed at the media's relentless Public Relations effort on Chelsea Clinton's behalf. The Hill's motto should just be "Chelsea Clinton's vapid tweets are our news." But there are so many outlets that just pump out Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea all day long.

Nice Deb has noticed that Chelsea Clinton is deploying the "Goodness gracious!" with tedious repetitiveness to make her sound "authentic" and "folksy." One wonders how many millions of dollars were spent on Public Image Consultants and Brand Psychology Experts to choose the right catchphrase to make Chelsea Clinton sound "authentic."

Or to make a woman who's always lived in a state capital, national capital, or financial capital, and only attended the finest schools of the elite, sound "folksy."

She also seems to be saying "Bless her heart," despite being as Southern as Polaris.

And see PJ Media's Daily Morning Update (third item) to see Chelsea Clinton's odd way of denying she's running for any office.

She seems to deny she's running for anything with great relish, as if she's very pleased to have been asked, and would like you to ask her more.

She also has a tendency to say she's not running for any office, and then list the many possible offices she could run for, but is not, currently, running for. Yet.

Like so:

"I really am constantly surprised by the stories of me running for, fill in the blank--Congress, Senate, City Council, the presidency. I really find this all rather hysterical, because I've been asked this question a lot throughout my life, and the answer has never changed."

It's a very well-known DC ploy for people to "float" their own names for some high office. If there are "reports" that Relative Nobody is "being considered" for Secretary of Defense or State, there's a good chance that that person floated her name herself, or her political operatives did.

In order to be elected to office, people have to first find you plausible as a holder of that office.

And one way to do that is to frequently get yourself talked about in relation to holding that office, so that, by dint of repetition, people simply accept that you are a plausible candidate -- after all, they've heard you associated with that office a thousand times already. You've hacked their brains to associate you with elective office.

Hillary Clinton, I'm very certain, did this herself -- Clinton had barely been in office a year before the topic of Hillary becoming the next president were bubbling through the media with some regularity.

And it got her pretty far -- she got a Consolation Senate seat, came close to winning the nomination once, and won it the next time out.

No one is seriously considering Chelsea Clinton for any office, except Chelsea Clinton herself, the career Clinton Permanent Bureaucracy which now finds itself not quite sure what to do with all its free time or how to make rent, and the media that desperately needs some ray of hope to soothe their Trump Anxiety Disorder.

TAD!

Yeah, I'm not tired of Chelsea complaining about the stigma of menstruation while carrying her entire backpack into the ladies room. No stigma there, no sirree. Haven't seen this much parental neglect since the movie 'Carrie'.

105 And Chelsea won't get elected from NY.

Neither Schumer nor Gillibrand are going anywhere.

If Chelsea tries to run for Congress in Manhattan she'll get primaried and lose. Too many ambitious folks who'll jump in. The Clintons don't have the juice to stop this.

If she tries to run to replace Lowey's seat (my own district) she'll get primaried and probably lose. The district now includes Rockland County so an R can be competitive. Plus Lowey's been retiring for the last 15 years.

106 It's not that they're uncertain. They thought they would have eight years of the Clinton Restoration, only to have that plan permanently discredited. Chelsea is the only active heir left for a decade: by the time her children are grown up, the dynasty will be an obscure batch of Arkansas yokels, long since bereft of political influence. There can only be one queen in the hive: and the Obama women have a better shot at it than Chelsea ever will.

109 Clinton made the comment at a recent fundraiser for Hillary Clinton
in an attempt to address evangelicals who question her mother's faith in
God. She said she was upset when teachers in a Sunday School class
talked about the wrongness of abortion.

"I find it quite insulting sometimes when people say to my mom, my
dad or me...that they question our faith,' said Chelsea. "I was
raised in a Methodist church and I left the Baptist church before my dad
did, because I didn't know why they were talking to me about abortion
when I was 6 in Sunday school --- that's a true story."



That's a true story!

Also from the article:

" I wrote a letter to President Reagan when I was five to voice my opposition to his visit to the Bitburg cemetery in Germany, because Nazis were buried there. I didn't think an American President should honor a group of soldiers that included Nazis. President Reagan still went, but at least I had tried in my own small way."

Really Chelse.....at age 5 you did this? Perhaps you should ask mommy what her favorite word is to describe Jews?

O.K. Its possible that Hillary has some remainder of the Christian faith she grew up with, and Lord knows I'm a sinner in need of God's grace and that all Christians need to grow in their faith, However one of the hallmark of of faith is IMO growing in the fruit of the spirit-Galatians-5. Does Hillary seem at all a person who is growing in love, joy, peace kindness,generosity,faithfulness and self control over the time we're seen her in public life? Does her actions indicate that? I don't think Chelsea learned from example from her folks.

There's a hearing tomorrow for the only judge President Trump has currently nominated for a seat on a court.

Amul Thapar, a district court judge, is nominated for a seat on the 6th Circuit.

Thapar sentenced one of the defendants, 84-year-old nun Megan Rice, to 35 months in prison for breaking into the U.S. nuclear weapons complex and using blood to deface a bunker holding bomb-grade uranium, a demonstration that exposed serious security flaws; Rice had asked not to receive leniency and said she would be honored to receive a life sentence. The two other defendants were sentenced to more than five years in prison, in part because they had much longer criminal histories. The activists' attorneys asked the judge to sentence them to time they had already served, about nine months, because of their record of goodwill.

Thapar said he was concerned they showed no remorse and he wanted the punishment to be a deterrent for other activists. On appeal, the Sixth Circuit reversed the most serious convictions against the protesters and, in May 2015, ordered their immediate release from custody, noting that the protesters' sentencing guidelines now recommended substantially less time in custody than they had already served.

274 Judicial coup status:


[X] Intact
[ ] Crushed


But actually, this delaying order (haven't looked at it yet) might fall within a somewhat normal, somewhat lawful (temporary) exercise of judicial authority, even if it is highly unwise and substantively dubious.


Unlike the still-prevailing seizure of power (modern German history fans, yes, that is a heavy-handed reference) by the judiciary in the case of the admissions/immigration EO, which was utterly lawless and should have been ignored.


Oh - and some wild-eyed people who actually think policy and substance and reality and laws and the constitution matter, and that brain-dead lazy robotic deference to existing patterns of behavior don't matter, kinda sorta predicted exactly this sort of stuff (audacious even if lawful judicial aggression) would surely increase if the coup were not suppressed.


It wasn't, and it is.

The Republicans are very much in favor of these radical judges thwarting President Trump for two reasons:

308 In an alternative universe where there was a GOP with any sense, responsibility, and character, and a WH with some understanding of what they're up against and how short the fuse it (sadly I think this latter knock is starting to look well-founded), this latest judicial audacity might have a positive side effect.


Administrative actions to withhold/limit funds to "sanctuary" cities/states are fine, but hard conditionality in the language of appropriations bills is the real deal. In that it would be completely immune to judicial meddling, and equally important, it would force Dem and GOP incumbents to vote on the issue, directly.


As I said, in another universe. In this one, the WH will fiddle-f**k around the edges, signalling the lack of will that is all the GOP mainstream is looking for - so that it can stick to its "agenda" of tiny quarter-measures and kabuki without paying a price.

Soothsayer, one small error there. The GOP's "strategy," such as it is, is to absolutely avoid politics, utterly, apart from kabuki for dim voters in safe districts. Impeachment would never cross their mind. Their constituents have largely been OK with the dramatic degradation of the country and its institutions to date, their intermittent tantrums leading only to election of more GOPers who do little.


Impeachment is the big daddy of national politics, absolutely the opposite of the quiet, misleading, incremental, mostly meaningless "opposition" (or now, "leadership" or "governing") that most of the GOP incumbents have made a lifestyle.

Mark Halperin Hates Dogs and Joy

So journ0list Mark Halperin castigated Delta for the indignity of having to sit next to this obviously-dangerous dog on his first class flight:


He later clarified -- or clarilied, maybe, decide for yourself -- that his only thought here was that the dog had not been seated next to its owner, and he was just trying to get Delta to observe more rational seat assignments by putting this dog next to his owner.

Well, the guy who actually paid for the ticket for the dog says Mark Halperin's account is, um, flawed.

[Tweet] We were abt to take off on redeye. Dog was cute. I was sharing pix & expressing surprise owner/dog hadn't been put 2gether.No time for essay https://t.co/gz4WYJvJGA

— Mark Halperin (@MarkHalperin) April 23, 2017

Talk about doubling down! However, Halperin's recollection of that fateful red-eye doesn't jibe with that of Charlie's owner, Anthony Pisano. Pisano, who works as a flight attendant for Delta, reached out via Twitter to say that, not only did Halperin not offer to trade seats but, rather than expressing concern that Delta was seating support animals apart from their owners, he told a flight attendant that he refused to sit next to a dog. What's more, in Pisano's telling, Halperin wouldn't speak to him or even look at him while the situation was resolved....

So it was the 10:45 red eye on delta. in first class the seating arrangement was A-BC-D seating. I had purchased 6A and 6B and Halperin was in 6C. The dog and I fly back and forth from California to NY 2-3 times a month. I am always aware to make sure to get the dog her own seat (she lays on the floor and sleeps) to ensure she doesn't encroach anyone's personal space. So I put Charlie (the dog) in 6A where she was great. She was in arms reach and everything was cool. Right before we took off the dog came and sat in between my legs for take off so she was secured. At this point halperin (I had no idea who he was) calls for a flight attendant and tells her that he refuses to sit next to a dog. Those were his exact words. At that point I noticed he took a picture of the dog which I just ignored. Next thing you know the lead flight attendant asked if I minded giving halperin 6A. It was so strange he wouldn't even look or speak to me about it. If he would have asked me I would have obliged, no big deal. I couldn't believe how rude this guy was carrying on as I sat right next to him. So I obliged, he moved into 6A and left his shoes and a mess in his little first class cubicle area. I politely brought him his shoes and belongings to which he literally looked the other way and that was that. I then woke up this morning to a friend sending me the article and was in shock reading his tweets. Mind you Delta did absolutely nothing wrong, the flight attendant were extremely accommodating to his wishes all while trying to make sure I wasn't upset in any way. They handled the situation kindly and professionally.



So, eh, in a way, Halperin is kind of right. The seating arrangement was

A (aisle) BC (aisle) D

Correction: If I'd read the damn article I quoted, which I obviously did not, I'd've known that Pisano says the dog was in A -- the window seat, all alone -- but only came over to B (next to Halperin) to be comforted during take-off. At all other times (or most other times), presumably, the dog would be all alone by the window.

This does make it look like Halperin is a dick who just wanted the window seat, or to sit alone, and used the Dog Complaint to get it.

Anyway, there's three sides to every story: My Side, Your Side, and Mark Halperin is Just a Dick. If Pisano is right, avoiding even looking at him during this easily-untangled knot is a dick move. Halperin has always struck me as uptight and high-strung, and refusing-to-look-someone-in-the-eye just because you're having minor conflict with them fits that impression.

And maybe he just wanted the window seat -- though no one who wants to broadcast that he's a frequent First Class flyer would admit he wants to sit by the window and see things he's seen a thousand times before.

I think Halperin was using the technique of grumbleflaunting here. It's considered rude and uncouth to, as Trump does, simply announce you have a lot of money and access to elite goods.

The way the well-educated, well-socialized upper middle class prefers to brag on itself is through grumbleflaunting, where you complain about some defect in an elite good, which demonstrates 1, you have access to that elite good (like First Class berthing) and 2, you're so sophisticated you can actually critique the relative goodness and eliteness of elite goods.

So like here's a grumbleflaunt:

So I was flying at Mach 5 in the Secret Concorde and this chubby model, Kate Upton or whatever, asked if she could "sit on my face later."

Really, @delta?! We have assigned seats for a reason! And maybe extend your legroom beyond the cramped three yards we have so that this busty supermodel doesn't have to make rude demands of fellow passengers just to stretch out her long legs, which are the color of pale honey infused with Pleasure-Heightening Drugs That Poor People Can't Afford and have the gracefully abrupt curves of my favorite Ferrari.*

* I mean of the street-legal Ferraris I own, of course. I'm not counting the unlicensed Flying Ferrari, for obvious reasons.

For Further Review and Contemplation: How do you think you can use the technique of grumbleflaunting to raise your own social cachet?

Putting Theory Into Practice: Try a series of grumbleflaunts with your friends and co-workers. If your grumbleflaunt is successful, you will see their eyebrows rise covetously and you will rise in social cachet.

If your grumbleflaunt is unsuccessful, you will be punched square in the nose. As you should be.

Posted by: rickb223 at April 25, 2017 03:18 PM (HBKaX)

10 Logically, yeah, you'd want the dog and his owner in B and C, and not next to another passenger. (Or put the dog in A -- but then that gives up the window seat to a dog. Though the dog would presumably enjoy that.)

Maybe just Halperin wanted to signal that he was with everyone else in his contempt for airlines, and he found his first opportunity.

56 I don't trust people who don't like dogs. This doesn't weed out a lot of liberal idiots or even all muzzies (some of the light core, married to regular folks have family dogs) but its a good starting point.

I actually could accept a mild grumble about dog hair and slobber spillover when you've paid for a first class seat and are dressed up, but first you'd have to be honest and start by saying you'd like Delta to let you decide whether you want to avoid sitting close to a dog when you bought your ticket.

Another reason I don't want to fly anymore. 'Support' animals.

I like dogs but don't want to sit next to them for hours on end. I want to throw a stick in a pond and watch them retrieve it. Rub their ears.

Watch them stand at the bow of the boat as we head off to go fishing, wind blowing through their bodies, while they're so excited about what the day will bring.

Maybe if I had a better opinion of the people I have experienced who needed support animals I might feel differently, but I've only known full scale leftists who required such things.

66 A bear bit off the forearm of a nine-year old Palestinian boy who tried to feed it during a school visit to a zoo in the occupied West Bank town of Qalqilya on Tuesday, Palestinian police said.

A police spokesman said the boy approached the caged bear with food when the animal pounced, severing the limb at the elbow. The bear then ate the arm.

The boy was being treated at a local hospital.

72 The dog is old school, just like me. The dog is wearing a tie.

I was raised to dress up a little when flying, otherwise it just becomes riding a bus at 30,000 feet.

The dog was probably better dressed than 80% of those in first class and 99% of those in coach (only 99%, since I may be one of those in coach).

91 On a flight to Spain several years ago, a kid with Tourettes (not kidding) was seated behind me. Kicked the back of my seat most of the flight.

But the flight attendant told the Spanish mom she would have to crate her cat (which I didn't realize was in her lap) and have it removed to the rear of the plane.

I would have happily spent the flight with the silent, sleeping cat than the poor kid kicking my seat for hours.

Case in point: When the dog farts, it is funny and disgusting. When your 350 lb co-seat sharer does it (or just rampant BO) then it is less funny, more horrifying.

...

yeah, and to be fair, some people are afraid of dogs, which dogs immediately pick up on, which makes them agitated and aggressive, and some people have no fear of dogs, which makes dogs calm and friendly.

I've never had a bad experience with a dog so I'm of the second kind. But I imagine if someone once got bit or snapped at, he'd be the first kind, and he would be afraid of dogs, and dogs would tend to get freaky around him.

But that still means that he's a pussy that doesn't understand that if you just project strength and a lack of fear to a dog, the dog responds with friendliness.

There are some conditions (e.g. epilepsy) that aren't at all obvious, but that service dogs can detect before a seizure occurs. I carry my cane on the bus even if don't need it that day, because otherwise I get the stink-eye for being a mid-30s guy sitting on a crowded bus, and I'm not going to drop my pants to show my hip surgery scar.

You mean it just came over to B for take-off?

She had just made me a stack of like 20 or so pancakes from scratch and she had been churning up that buttermilk from this cow we flew in from Ireland. Anyhoo, she tries to put some cheap maple syrup on the table instead of doing like she usually does and sucking it right out of a tree in Vermont the night before. Ok, sure we'd been making love in our 10 billion count sheets the night before, and probably were in the middle of the unabridged Kama Sutra, but still!!! So I had to let her know I was disappointed and probably needed to be alone for a couple seconds to reflect on the inferior pancake quality.
Well, it kinda put a damper on the post-pancake love making if you know what I mean. I think we only got through 4 or 5 costume changes before we were through. But I think she understands for tomorrow!

262 "I want to hear more about the Secret Concorde."

In some conspiratorial progressive recountings of how Reagan engineered the 1980 "October Surprise" to unseat Jimmuh Cartuh, it is said that Reagan quietly dispatched Bill Casey to Tehran to negotiate with the Ayatollah Khomeini.

In response to criticism that it would be physically and chronologically impossible for Casey to have been in Tehran given his high profile public visibility in other places close to that claimed time of the claimed meeting, the response is (I shit you not) that Casey had been secretly flown there and back aboard an SR-71 Blackbird at Mach 3.

Yes, despite being an ordinary private citizen at the time, Ronaldus Maximus was able to order up the crown jewel of the USAF with a few phone calls. And to also presumably get all of the Blackbird's elaborate travelling circus of support sent along to Iran with it. Is there *nothing* that man couldn't pull off?

Though it seems a better strategy -- to avoid Halperin-related freak-outs -- would have been to go over to A and comfort the dog at A, and then come back to B after takeoff.

Posted by: ace


Try riding a bicycle or jogging through an upscale neighborhood where some of the dogs weigh more than actual people and get back to me.

There's a reason they're carrying pepper spray, and it's not because they have had pleasant experiences, or failed to project strength or lack of fear.

It's because a trip to the ER and a rabies shot is a pain in the ass. Better to engage in a little operant conditioning for the next jogger or bike rider.

Yeah, that makes sense. Part of the response to Halperin is how *he* responded to the situation, as in ignoring the owner while insisting the dog be moved, and then snarky tweet.

Like the anonymous professor a few threads down, people seem to prefer to skip talking to someone directly over a disagreement, instead going straight to whining and snarking. Weird kind of appeal to authority and/or safe space instead of being an adult and dealing with it themselves.

A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a
new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year
over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy
efficiency equipment.

The Energy Transitions Commission's (ETC) report claims "additional investments of around $300-$600 billion per annum do
not pose a major macroeconomic challenge," which they say will help the
world meet the goals laid out in the Paris agreement.

ETC is made up of energy executives, activist leaders and investment
bankers, including former Vice President Al Gore, who would no doubt get

Halperin is in the Javitz Center where everyone is watching CNN on the big screen as the results come in. It's looking bleak for Hillary.

He turns to the camera and says, "Trump is up by 8 points in Florida, and only 92% of the vote is in, so Hillary could still..."

And his voice trails off. You can see math happening in his head. His expression changes to one of doom. The penny has dropped.

384 Here's a question. Can cats fly? A lot of people are
allergic to cats. I don't fly a lot, but I can't recall anyone who flew
with a cat on/or near their person.


Posted by: Mike at April 25, 2017 03:58 PM (jFniP)


I flew next to a female SCAD student on a flight from LA to ATL several years ago. She had a small cat in a purse-sized carrier in her lap. Cat was quiet and calm.

yes. they have special carriers and i have had the pleasure of seeing this. lots of high end kittens are shipped this way and i think i know someone who had a Peterbald (a russian type of hairless cat) delivered like this because you never know how cold the hold will get and you dont want them on a long flight freezing and get a sick kitten you just paid 3k for.

complaining that I wouldn't stop petting his dog and talking to him in a
baby voice (whose the cutest puppy in the world? You are yes you are).

"I want to hear more about the Secret Concorde."

In some
conspiratorial progressive recountings of how Reagan engineered the 1980
"October Surprise" to unseat Jimmuh Cartuh, it is said that Reagan
quietly dispatched Bill Casey to Tehran to negotiate with the Ayatollah
Khomeini.

In response to criticism that it would be physically
and chronologically impossible for Casey to have been in Tehran given
his high profile public visibility in other places close to that claimed
time of the claimed meeting, the response is (I shit you not) that
Casey had been secretly flown there and back aboard an SR-71 Blackbird
at Mach 3.

Yes, despite being an ordinary private citizen at the
time, Ronaldus Maximus was able to order up the crown jewel of the USAF
with a few phone calls. And to also presumably get all of the
Blackbird's elaborate travelling circus of support sent along to Iran
with it. Is there *nothing* that man couldn't pull off?


Posted by: torquewrench at April 25, 2017 03:47 PM (qJjMA)

Torque, I recall it somewhat differently. Here's what I remember:
1. It was VP candidate (also private citizen) George H.W. Bush 41.
2. It was Spain that he went to to meet the Iranians.
3. The story was related by Gary Sick, who was a retired Navy captain on Jimmy Carter's NSC staff. He was flogging a book about the October Surprise on Nightline and Ted Koppel just let him spew the ridiculousness without asking a single tough question. It was during the 1988 election when Bush 41 was not yet 41.
Anyway, that's the way I remember it.

438 This actually did happen to me:

About four years ago I was coming back on a flight from Milan -- NYC -- SF, and (in all seriousness) two supermodels were in the seats behind me -- and they both were sick! I don't know what disease they had, but for the whole flight they coughed and sneezed and I could just feel the disease wrapping around the seat and getting into my sinuses.

They got off at NYC (obviously for some modeling gig), but sure enough, 24 hours after arriving at home, I came down with some horrible respiratory ailment that took me weeks to shake off. And I 100% knew where I had gotten it.

The detail I'm leaving off is that these Typhoid Maria's were both unbelievably gorgeous. So at least I got beautiful germs from them.

that's peacocking, but at least they're being up front about bragging, rather than attempting a stealth brag via the humblebrag or grumblebrag technique.

When I was a young man I lived in a big apartment complex where you had to walk about a half block to the nearest dumpster. One night in a driving rain I ran out to the dumpster with a bag of garbage, when this asshole dog that had been left out on someone's stoop came flying out and bit me hard.

The owner told me "It was your fault. You were running and you scared him."

Srsly.

I reported the fact that they had a dog to the landlords, since no dogs were allowed. The landlord told me "It's a service dog, we can't do anything about it."

So you know the fcking flight attendant is flying free. Is his dog flying free?




When did they start seating flight attendants on back trips in first class instead of bumping up an elite member?



If
I was Diamond Medallion member and found out a flight attendant and his
dog got a free seat and I didn't, all hell would break loose.

Well, I use the term "supermodel" loosely, to mean "runway model who's ever better-looking than the usual runway model," rather than the standard meaning of supermodel which is "One of the 50 highest paid models in the world." I actually don't know how much they earned. "Supermodel" is just my slang for "astoundingly beautiful Italian chick."

Said dog came after me, cornered me. On my own property. I refused to back up. I'm (insert 'internet tough guy' dimensions here, except I'm actually that in real life). So she had to come get the dog.

She thereupon gave the dog a 'treat'. Insert a shitload of swear words here.

Anyone who ever slept through Psychology 101 knows how the dog perceived his reward for 'capturing' me and what I'm in for next time.

So it's either pepper spray or a call to authorities and a $300 fine for her. Still haven't decided.

573 So you know the fcking flight attendant is flying free. Is his dog flying free?

When did they start seating flight attendants on back trips in first class instead of bumping up an elite member?

If I was Diamond Medallion member and found out a flight attendant and his
dog got a free seat and I didn't, all hell would break loose.

Posted by: Ralph at April 25, 2017 04:13 PM (sprPv)


Actually, you don't know any of that. Those are incorrect assumptions, made by you from a position of less-than-perfect knowledge about the way the air travel system works.

To be guaranteed a seat (what is known as a "positive space" reservation), an airline employee must either be traveling on company-mandated business, or buy a ticket. The same goes for the dog. And no, the folks working a departure do not get to just randomly pick who they upgrade, either. Not unless they want to get fired, anyway.

So the guy paid for the seats. Good News! No 'Diamond Medallion' members were disadvantaged/harmed in the making of this episode.

I think a lot of places aren't putting up with that bullshit anymore.

Forget the fact that he doesn't have the right to do so. The judges cannot do what they do.

I have one of them for persistent pests, too. I warned her, after they moved in, that she can not let her dog run free. Plus leash laws. Many people in area set poison pellets around the foundation of their homes because of mice and Lyme disease in the area.

She persisted. First dog mysteriously dead. She's now on second dog.

I remember the flight to Florida several years ago, going to my son's high school graduation. The woman in the seat in front of me had brought her own lunch (this was shortly after they stopped serving those yummy airline meals). While we were waiting to take off, she reached into her backpack and pulled out a big ol' tuna sandwich and proceeded to eat it. Gah, the smell was ghastly.

Not sure if this was answered, but yes, you can buy a dog a seat.

The difference is he is not allowed out of his carrying case during the flight. We open the lid of his carry-on, but the poor guy is stuck inside it for the duration.

The Media Bubble

Mollie Hemingway has written a new Encounter Broadside ("Broadside" being the imprint name for long essays about a subject) called Trump vs. the Media. She talks about the media bubble and daily social media freakouts with Ben Domenech.

The book was released early today (like 12am or thereabouts) and should be available on Amazon now. In the interview, starting around 11:30, she talks about the media's groupthink and open coordination with the Clinton campaign, citing the media's embargo of pre-briefed details about Fat Whore Miss Universe until Hillary had initiated the attack line herself in a debate.

At 28:30, she gets into something particularly fascinating to me: the groupthink and virtue signalling of reporters on Twitter, what Sean Davis calls the #BlueCheckmarkMafia who freak out virtually every morning about the Outrage of the Day. She notes that she planned to watch their twitter accounts to find the final proof of bias, but did not expect them to continue showing off how biased they were -- eventually, she expected they would figure out "that this doesn't make them look good."

So she thought this would be a brief opportunity.

But they never stopped. In fact, they just got worse and worse.

She concludes that maintaining credibility with other progressives, especially other progressive media-types, is more valuable to them than credibility with the public at large.

Meanwhile, Politico has a good story arguing that Hell Yes, the "media bubble" is real and it is spectacular.

He looks to where the media cohort is living to prove his point. Not only do almost all media people live in blue states, and blue counties in the blue states, but they tend to live in the bluest counties of blue states. Thus, they have little diversity in background, and upon relocating to the Bluest of All Blues, they have next-to-zero diversity in the thoughts and modes of life in their current everyday lives.

He suggests that this is due to the rise of the internet, strangely enough. The internet was supposed to bring about diversity of thought in the media, but it's had the opposite effect. The internet is destroying the newspaper industry -- no problem so far on that!

But the problem is that while the Bluest of All Blue big media was always liberal, it was also fed (a bit) by reporters hired from small papers in the interior of the country. So it had some diversity of background and political ethos.

But the industry has faced big cutbacks and many small local papers have closed up shop. The big media papers have cut staff too.

So anyone who wants to aspire to work in media really sort of has to be a progressive to have a shot at a long career in an increasingly progressive industry.

Furthermore, even worse, internet media hires now exceed traditional media hires.

You'd think this is where the diversity the internet promised would come in -- but no, internet media employees live almost exclusively in the Bluest of All Blue bubble cities -- even less diversity of zip code than the old media.

And let me add something to that: given that with the internet you can do your job of Media Reporter from practically anywhere (and most internet media people are not doing first-hand reporting, so they don't have to be in DC or NY or wherever), and given that "flyover states" and smaller cities in those states are much, much cheaper than NYC or DC or LA, you'd think that some of these internet media companies would set up shop in, say, Lincoln, Nebraska or Boise, Idaho.

No such luck.

And then ask yourself why -- you can make more money and own more property and have a richer lifestyle on the same level of income in one of the non-capital cities in the US. Why are almost all internet media companies, then, located in the exact same places as the old media?

Answer: Because progressives want to live in big, blue cities. It makes no financial sense, but it makes perfect cultural sense, because they assign a huge premium to the advantage of living in massive clusters of their fellow progressives, with whom they can chat about all the art installations and edgy off-Broadway plays they intend to check out some time but never do because they're always locked indoors watching Girls and Orange Is The New Black.

(Which by the way are on offer in Boise and Lincoln as well.)

At any rate, I assume that the people running these companies know where the employees they want to hire want to live, and it's not in a red county, and it's not even in a purplish county in a red state.

They want to be among their fellow correligionists.

And that tells you quite a bit about their biases. They'd rather live in an expensive, cramped studio five-floor walkup in Brooklyn than have a three bedroom house in Lincoln.

Only someone who places a very, very high premium in being Among the Tribe would sacrifice so much of more tangible lifestyle benefits.

So I think Jason Whitlock is right -- the leftwing Silicon Valley tech-culture has in fact hacked the media culture, moving it further to the left than ever before.

The very thing that was promised to expand diversity of thought has in fact greatly reduced it. Fewer and fewer opinions are acceptable to this claque any more, and less and less dissent is tolerated.

Rather than being fertile loam permitting thousands of different flowers to bloom, the internet is a relentlessly culled garden containing a single ugly species of flower that looks an awful lot like a weed with bright petals.

34 This is all true about the bubble, but what's really interesting is that you don't even have to get very far away from the bubble centers to find credentialed/educated, and well-paid people who aren't full progs and who occasionally or regularly vote Republican. Even in a 60/40 blue county, there are plenty of people who are "red" in this dichotomy and who don't fit the trailer park dwelling, toothless highschool dropout fantasy that progs project.

They're actively avoiding these places and people, or perhaps pretending that they don't exist too.

36 And that tells you quite a bit about their biases. They'd rather live in an expensive, cramped studio five-floor walkup in Brooklyn than have a three bedroom house in Lincoln.


Average rent in a slummy part of Oakland for a one-bedroom apartment is now over $3,000/month. And if you want to live in a "transitional" neighborhood between the slum and the lower-crime neighborhood, you're looking at $3,800+/month. To live in a good neighborhood -- you don't wanna ask.

And this is Oakland, the "Brooklyn of San Francisco." To live in San Francisco itself is basically unaffordable for 99% of Americans.

In fact just yesterday, there was a study that come out showing that anyone who earns under $106,000/year now counts as "low income" in San Francisco, and will get you qualify for "low income housing"!! While in flyover country, $106,000/month would make you the wealthiest person in the entire county.

"You think all this is permanent." I said this to an uncle I was arguing about. Most liberals think their life and lifestyle can never ever go away, so there is no need to worry about tinkering with the core things holding the society up. This is illustrated in the previous two posts and it is here.

I saw an article on Instapundit where they were saying that Rachel Maddow would be the big winner with O'reilly going down. My first thought was "Because Yeah, O'Reilly viewers are the exact type to give Maddow a watch because there is nothing on."

At least martial arts classes are fairly common in any moderate-sized town. It sucks because I've had to move around in the past for work or the Army, and I usually just find the things that interest me when suddenly I move again.

It's gobsmacking that we discuss the energy consumption of everything except all those server farms.

79 36 And that tells you quite a bit about their biases. They'd rather live in an expensive, cramped studio five-floor walkup in Brooklyn than have a three bedroom house in Lincoln.


Average rent in a slummy part of Oakland for a one-bedroom apartment is now over $3,000/month. And if you want to live in a "transitional" neighborhood between the slum and the lower-crime neighborhood, you're looking at $3,800+/month. To live in a good neighborhood -- you don't wanna ask.

And this is Oakland, the "Brooklyn of San Francisco." To live in San Francisco itself is basically unaffordable for 99% of Americans.

In fact just yesterday, there was a study that come out showing that anyone who earns under $106,000/year now counts as "low income" in San Francisco, and will get you qualify for "low income housing"!! While in flyover country, $106,000/month would make you the wealthiest person in the entire county.
==================

Reminds me of an article I read a couple months ago about some high-rise in SF that is literally leaning over on its foundation. The building is full of condos that cost upwards of $18 million. Of course, the residents were all moaning and crying about the building.

Outwardly, they are right, the building is going to be uninhabitable because engineers don't know what to do about it and these people have lost a LOT of money. On the other hand, HA HA HA fucking HA. The more pain these blue city fuckers face, the better in my book. Maybe the Democrat Party will come and rescue them.

The corridors along major roads like US75 and GA41 are purple in metro-Atlanta. If you look at the DDHQ precinct map, it's purple in Cobb County along 75/41 and red everywhere else. That's why our precincts are so oddly shaped: to reduce the impact of a very red Cobb and to increase the impact of the purple 75/41 corridor.

116 That's a good point. I've considered moving but then thought, "Wait,
how could I continue my martial arts classes?" You do need a certain
population density to support niche businesses.

Ace, I live in Lexington, Ky. There is literally a martial arts class in the shopping center across the street from my 1000 sq foot apt (with my own garage for under $900/mo.) In the same shopping center, there is a sushi place, a steak house, a wal-mart grocery store, a AAA insurance/travel broker, an LA Fitness, a pet store, and an optometrist.

I can walk my dog without worrying I need to lock my door.

If it is 3 am, I can walk over to the shopping center without a care in the world.

117 I think I have already opined on the urban coastal cities/elites vs - well - vs ever other person and place in the US dichotomy we have right now (and of which those few urban centers have no clue about) . I have also opined on the intense unpopularity of the "media" which has been in place for a long, long time. For example, we have all seen Die Hard yes? ( what? who said they did not? Go at once and see the best Christmas Movie since It's a Wonderful Life right now please) . Well, remember in Die Hard, at the end, where McLean's wife punches out the jackoff reporter? Remember everyone in the theatre cheering and whooping it up at that part? Well I do too. And I was living in NYC at the time. Which was in 1988 (!). Does anyone here think that the people's view of the media has gotten better since then? Does anyone, anywhere, with a brain think that? Despite this obvious fact - the media has, somehow, continued to view itself as the only truly "noble" profession and sees itself as "truth tellers." Think about that for a minute and what that means for their delusion - and what that says about the "bubble" that they are in.

It is less bubble and more like a large, stone, sarcophogus, buried under a pyramid, underneath sunken Atlantis, somehere deep in the Marianas Trench.

118 Another issue is how do you define "city" vs. "small town"? I grew up in a town of less than 1,000 residents. I now live in a city of close to 120,000. To me it feels like a big city (about as big as I care to live in), but to people from Chicago or NYC, it's barely above small town status. I consider it a "big" city because it has two hospitals, two post-secondary educational institutions (community college and four-year state uni), a mass transit/bus system, and well defined neighborhoods. Heck, it even has an Amtrak station! However, the GOP has been the dominant party at the local level here for decades and the surrounding counties are all "red" as can be.

Rather than being fertile loam permitting thousands of different flowers to bloom, the internet is a relentlessly culled garden containing a single ugly species of flower that looks an awful lot like a weed with bright petals.

126 Access to university classes is available free on the internet. As to those other things ... I'd rather drive in to access them (not that I have any interest in museums, theater, tango or burlesque shows, but ... if I did ...). I can't remember the last time I attended or did any of them.
Posted by: ThePrimordialOrderedPair at April 25, 2017 02:19 PM (zc3Db)


Internet classes are hit or miss. I've taken classes online because they better fit my schedule, but it doesn't always work well (online Russian, for example).

I've driven an hour and a half to Tucson or Denver for dancing or a show before, but that gets old after a while. You have to pay for gas, the tickets, a hotel room, etc. Plus, it's harder to do during the middle of the week. When I lived in Colorado Springs, not a small town by any stretch, the bulk of swing dancing was in Denver. I wasn't going to drive up on a Tuesday night to go dancing, only to drive back at 1am and be up at 6am the next day.

132 Ace, the real issue is this:

Modern-day journalists only have stature because they have inherited 200 years of "credibility" and "social status" built up by their journalistic predecessors -- just as a wealthy kid inherits money from his ancestors.

But -- just like a no-good-nik rich kid who squanders the family fortune in one generation while not adding to it in any way himself -- modern-day journalists have very quickly "burned through" their inherited credibility, and right around now they're beginning to realize to their shock that they are bankrupt -- not financially bankrupt, but socially bankrupt.

And they have no idea how to get that credibility back. They've been so used to surfing on their unearned social standing ("If it's in the newspaper, it must be true") that they've never had to earn the public's trust on their own.

Thatcher said, "The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other peoples money."

I say, "The problem with biased journalism is that eventually you run out of other people's credibility."

My younger brother used to teach a Martial Arts class in a small town in GA. They truly are everywhere.
========

They are everywhere. I grew up in a town of 3000. There was a gym with personal trainers, a karate school, an art museum in the next small town over, etc etc etc. And a metropolitan area (Pittsburgh) was 45 minutes away and a smaller metro area and assorted large suburbs (Youngstown) was 30 minutes away.

There are a lot of pre-conceived notions about small towns/rural areas that are just wrong.

I'll say that even in my hometown of <8K people back in the 90s, there was at least one place that offered karate classes. There's lots around if you don't mind traveling 30-45mins to one of the larger cities like Concord or Manchester. There's always going to be a market for martial arts, fitness clubs, gyms, etc, even in relatively rural areas.



I think where you start running into roadblocks is the bigger cultural things. If you enjoy dumping an entire paycheck every month into going to see a Broadway show, you're not going to get that in NH. You're not even really going to find that in Boston, but that's the closest you'll get to it without going to NYC. Same for art galleries, musical venues, and chic restaurants serving cutting edge cuisine. Sure, some smaller metropolitan areas will have those things, in whole or in part, but none of them will have the same variety, quality and richness of choice.



And then there's always geography. I love New Hampshire. I can't get New England topology or weather in Nebraska. I'd miss the ocean and the mountains being less than two hours away apiece. That's why I don't move.



I guess you have to decide what's more important: a comfortable living that's highlighted by occasional trips into metro areas to indulge in things like the theater, or a higher cost of living where all of that is right at your fingertips. I'd go for option #1 without hesitation, but priorities differ for everyone.

All of the construction in SF for the last 20 years has been enormously substandard.

Ace, the real issue is this:



Modern-day journalists only have stature because they have inherited
200 years of "credibility" and "social status" built up by their
journalistic predecessors -- just as a wealthy kid inherits money from
his ancestors.

Zombie,

Gotta split hairs here - as far as I am concerned the press has never had a shred of "credibility" form yellow journalists at the turn of the last century ( a great theme in Citizen Kane), back through the muckraking rags strewn around in the Adams vs. Jefferson election in the 19th Century and the Lady Hamilton Affair in the UK in the 18th, and even earlier, the press and media have always been whores. The "noble newsman' is a recent creation, and a socialist construct at that. It became a popular lie ( a canya brava, if you will) during the Nixon scandal - but is is an absolute falsehood.

You simply cannot squander something you don't have. Press have always been whores, always will be whores - but for some reason they don't seem to be aware of it anymore. Just keep calling them out ( a la the crowds at Trump events) until they snap out of it . . . or . . . lampposts and ropes are available for just such a purpose - some assembly required.

183 161 "Reminds me of an article I read a couple months ago about some high-rise
in SF that is literally leaning over on its foundation. The building
is full of condos that cost upwards of $18 million."

All of the construction in SF for the last 20 years has been enormously substandard. The fast-buck corner cutting contractors and shady fly-by-night developers teamed up with a municipal planning and permitting apparatus that's been taken over by a corrupt ethnic mafia. There are more unmarked envelopes flying around than there are pigeons.

It's going to really be something when the Big One arrives, and all of those underdesigned, shoddily constructed buildings are subjected to major seismic loads. I fully expect at least one of the new luxe skyscrapers will come down.
Posted by: torquewrench


And the double-whammy hilarious ultra-irony to the "sinking skyscraper" problem is that it (The Millennium Tower) was built as part of the High Speed Rail train terminal (the "Transbay Transit Center") -- which will almost certainly never be used as a train station! So they built this building specifically for people to have easy access to the high-speed rail station -- and not only did the building immediately start falling over, but there never will be any high-speed trains! Complete fail on an epic scale.

189 Average rent in a slummy part of Oakland for a one-bedroom apartment is now over $3,000/month. And if you want to live in a "transitional" neighborhood between the slum and the lower-crime neighborhood, you're looking at $3,800+/month. To live in a good neighborhood -- you don't wanna ask.

And this is Oakland, the "Brooklyn of San Francisco." To live in San Francisco itself is basically unaffordable for 99% of Americans.

In fact just yesterday, there was a study that come out showing that anyone who earns under $106,000/year now counts as "low income" in San Francisco, and will get you qualify for "low income housing"!! While in flyover country, $106,000/month would make you the wealthiest person in the entire county.

I live in Lincoln and own my house (built less than 3 years ago). My mortgage is less than half that much for three bedrooms, three-stall garage, and unfinished basement on a corner lot.

And that's even with housing at a premium. Builders can't keep up and there are about three times as many realtors as there are available listings.

193 That Politico story is great, but I don't know if they even captured the full drama of the swing by comparing 2008 and 2016 in the review of counties and accompanying infographic.

I don't think '08 was a representative neutral year - Obama's ascendancy was a left-skew year. Sorta reliable Republicans, on the heels of W's media battering (which kind of shows that the bias was already there), charmed by the world's greatest snake oil salesman (and perhaps some imagined demographic guilt), broke for Obama. Increased voter turnout made counties and states that were previously on the red side of purple go blue. Stating the obvious, many returned to their statistical trends this election. In contrast, Bush-Kerry in 2004 was a more even match in popular vote, 2% closer, and earlier elections might be even more telling. I think 2008 was when this groupthink really came into its own, but I am inclined to believe it was more than a subtle creep well before that cycle. Even the 2012 election might show a few more red counties as Obama fever subsided to the tune of 30 electoral votes.

The point being, they told a fantastic story, but I think if we look beyond the limited data set, their conclusions would be even more stark.

196 There is largely nothing but groupthink and political projection coming from the media. It's their worldview, or what they hope it to be. It's Not factual or even likely outcomes. Everything is seen through their rose colored purview and based on what they hope it will be or perceive it should be. Honest reflection is a thing of the past. Journalism is no longer the art of reporting, it's the art of molding public opinion to fit their political liberal worldview. It's the essence of propaganda.

We had a community center gym where we trained for wrestling and football when we werent shagging bales or walking beans or breaking halter cattle for the county fair. Didnt have any museums or aquatic centers or pro sports franchises, we did have an Andrew Carnegie library that was pretty cool.

But we had pheasants and deer to hunt. Lots of fish to catch. We had room to roam and could ride horses or dirtbikes or hike for hours. My friends and I made our our fun.

My only regret now about living in the cities is that my kids never had a chance to grow up the way I did.

238 Living in the city is fun when you're young and have at least a decent job and some money to spend. I did it myself. Things change when you have kids, you need space, and maybe you're not rich enough to be sending them to private schools.
What the clustering of the new media into these cities denotes is that they're all young, and they "literally know nothing."

Same. But I think it also has to do with your current lifestyle. When I was just married we lived in a high-rise in N. VA one block from a Metro stop, and everything we could want was within walking distance - restaurants, bars (some that hosted bands), grocery, a mall, movie theater, a library, etc. Could hop on the Metro and enjoy something in DC in minutes. It was great, totally easy living. Then we had a kid, and for a couple of years it was still convenient. But then we started wanting different things - a backyard for the kid, proximity to family, good schools, and the rest...

Krav Maga is a form of hand to hand self defense developed by the IDF. It's a great workout and, more importantly, a form of hand to hand self defense developed by the IDF. I am casual acquaintances with one of the trainers at the Krav Maga place and really should start going again. It's a great place, their classes for women are big on the whole here is how you get away so you can run and scream your head off if, for some God forsaken reason, you can't get to your gun first.

Barre refers to bar along the wall that ballerinas use to provide balance while doing warm ups. Barre classes are one of the hip new work outs because don't you want to look like a ballerina? So come in and we'll do barre exercises like they do and you'll look just like that!

Of course, barre classes leave out the whole starvation and dancing 11 hours a day and broken toes and feet bleeding part about why ballerinas have the bodies they do.

Story time! A dear friend of mine, who is a tiny little size 00, texted me one day whilst walking home in NYC. She was walking past the American Ballet Theater just as a class let out. As she texted, being surrounded by a bunch of professional ballerinas is a sure way to make you feel fat.

Oakland and Berkeley (i.e. "the East Bay") are actually like that as well. Oakland has some incredible, jaw-dropping old-school mansions -- entire neighborhoods of them, actually -- and just a couple miles away are some of the scariest ghettos in America.

You could make something like that. A nice quality wooden walking stick, with a brass handle formed into points and edges. Then mold a cover over the handle of some very brittle plastic. Something tough enough to withstand use as a handle, but should you reverse your grip, and land a blow on some miscreant with it, the plastic would instantly shatter and fall away, revealing the pointy bits for subsequent blows.

True, almost all of downtown SF is built on a filled-in Gold-Rush-era harbor (when they excavate the foundations for each new building, they ALWAYS find abandoned 19th-century ships) -- however, the seismic building code 100% requires that they drill down to bedrock for the foundation posts.

What they're beginning to learn, with this new building (and a couple others), is that even the "bedrock" is not necessarily as solid as they had imagined, especially in places like The Millennium Tower that used to be underwater just a hundred and fifty years ago.

319 Just seconding that small towns will definitely have a martial arts place. Sports are about the only thing you can do that's not hugely population dependent.

I LOVED living around Tulsa; it had a ballet and opera (I ahd season tickets for awhile), there were symphonies in Tulsa and Bartlesville, good restaurants, nice boutique shopping, lovely parks, art galleries. And I could live 20 miles outside in wide open country side, with traffic that at its worst only took me a half hour to get into downtown.

It's honestly a very false pretension of "blue cities" (really, large Eastern cities) that they're anything like a center of culture. Lots of people have access to very cultured, enriching things -- and the internet is making that even more ubiquitous.

For the symphony or ballet I suppose some people like going quite often - my dad had season tickets to the Cleveland Orchestra, for instance. I only went with him once or twice a year, though. For sports teams, sure, I can absolutely see living close and going to lots of games.

An art museum? Even if you want to see all the seasonal installations, that's what, three or four a year? And with theatre, once you've seen a show, you probably aren't going to see it again unless you're taking new people to watch it.

Which isn't to say these things don't matter at all for quality of life - I just think they rank quite a bit lower than cost of living, or how easy it is to get around (public transit, ease of walking, how bad the traffic is), or just simply how pretty the locale is. You may only visit certain places twice a year, but you might drive past them every day.

Re: Newspapers vs online news.

For quite some time now we've been in a market transition period. The daily in my town is nearly dead. Skeleton crew runs it and most news comes from USA Today who owns it. They shut the press down years ago and it and several other papers are printed elsewhere and shipped to the town they're for.

They haven't quite figured out how to make money with the online version of the paper. And likely they won't. A website is next to free and anyone can start an online paper. Two startups in my town besides the printed daily's effort.

Really, I guess it would be hard to identify any time - stretching back well before I was born - when there wasn't an argument to be made that the media establishment was pulling left. Vietnam, Nixon, even entry into the world wars, it seems conservatives got battered for every action or inaction, since, dunno, late 1870s?

But, I do think Obama Fever made 2008 an unusually blue year to serve as the frame of reference for how much bluer the oligarchy became by 2016.

367 Interesting thoughts, Ace.

I do wonder if part of the media bubble is the result of the same sort of forces that created the humanities professor bubble. Psychology, sociology, literature, and the various "-studies" programs are comparably leftist as the mainstream media. The difference between the two seems to be geography. While the media is concentrated in a handful of cities, humanities professors are spread out all over the country. They have to be, due to the nature of the job. Yet they are reliably as leftist as the media.

I suspect that the mechanism is similar in both cases. It's not so much that market consolidation is keeping the conservatives away, but rather that market consolidation is giving the entrenched and powerful leftists the opportunity to enforce the conformity. Decades of professionally screwing over conservatives and creating a hostile work environment for nonbelievers has created the bubble that we see today. Market consolidation may have accelerated the trend, but I suspect the actual mechanism is basically the true believers being assholes.

377 For the symphony or ballet I suppose some people like going quite often - my dad had season tickets to the Cleveland Orchestra, for instance. I only went with him once or twice a year, though. For sports teams, sure, I can absolutely see living close and going to lots of games.

An art museum? Even if you want to see all the seasonal installations, that's what, three or four a year? And with theatre, once you've seen a show, you probably aren't going to see it again unless you're taking new people to watch it.

Which isn't to say these things don't matter at all for quality of life - I just think they rank quite a bit lower than cost of living, or how easy it is to get around (public transit, ease of walking, how bad the traffic is), or just simply how pretty the locale is. You may only visit certain places twice a year, but you might drive past them every day.
Posted by: broseidon being a capitalist pigdog (yknow, working) at April 25, 2017 03:14 PM (oZ6kz)


Two or three decent museums could easily keep you occupied one weekend a month all year, if you don't try to race through and see everything in one day.

A lot of people like having the option as well. Sure, they may only go a couple times a year, but they're willing to pay to live closer so that they don't have to make a bit production out of planning a trip.

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

I may say that 2004 was more restrained with Rather being more of an outlier.

In 2008, the media found a man they loved like a man loves a mistress in Obama, and they pushed as hard as they could without letting their wives know.

2012, they were pretty sure that the wives knew, so they could be a bit more brazen about it.

2016, the wives had moved out and the media was doing coke off of the Democratic Party's ass in their shared appartment.

398 Answer: Because progressives want to live in big, blue cities. It makes no financial sense,

I disagree with this. In tech and internet media, you're expected to switch jobs every 2 to 4 years. Either to get salary raises, or because your company went out of business, or to learn new skills and keep near the forefront of the industry. So you have to live somewhere where there's a large number of companies you can apply to. Similarly, the tech companies need to locate somewhere where they can get a large number of quality programmers. So both sides end up in the large cities, regardless of politics.

The rate of churn in tech and internet jobs makes living anywhere other than a big city a risky proposition.

Late Update to Last Story

I should add it as an update, but the post is old now and no one will check for new updates.

The guy you saw reporting on the storming of the Heritage Foundation offices is actually a Daily Caller reporter who had infiltrated/embedded with the protesters to get the story.

Get this -- the people who illegally broke into a building and committed trespass called the police on him. Not sure what crime they accused him of -- maybe Possession of a Microaggression, maybe Practicing the First Amendment with Malice Aforethought.

Maybe Unlawful Entry Into a Safe Space.

I don't know because the clip is only available on FaceBook and I'm not on FaceBook.

On the subject of the cops, this comment got willowed, but it's contextually appropriate so I'll rocket it up to the current thread. People were talking about the crime explosion in the affluent suburbs. To which, this:

... the PDs in the yuppie burbs have learned by closely watching their bigger cousins, the metro police departments.

And so the suburban police are now also carefully pencil-whipping and gundecking their crime statistics collection to minimize the extent of the problem.

Just as has been being done by NYPD, LAPD, SFPD, CPD, DCPD and other large departments for the last decade.

Not sure what crime they accused him of -- maybe Possession of a
Microaggression, maybe Practicing the First Amendment with Malice
Aforethought.

134 Most of the cops are fine. It is the power-seeking ones put in positions of power that are the problem.

When I saw video of the Berkeley cops being asked about standing down, they simply told the people to ask the people in charge... and their disgust as having to stand down was palpable.

This is the result of long-term affirmative action race quotas and requirements in filling the top slots in police forces. Not only are the officers sub-par but they come with a pre-installed sense of entitlement for nothing and an antipathy towards our society, in general.

But then, this is exactly what "affirmative action" was intended to produce ...

And then we have the women cops who couldn't really handle any physical confrontation without taking their guns out ...

"Protesters" "Storm" into the Heritage Foundation Building Around 11am

The claim seems to be this is just a "protest;" it's just that they had to break into the Hertiage building to hold the "protest" in the lobby.

Live feed of the siege on FaceBook.

A picture of the protest when it was outside the building here. Heritage staffers then counter-protested the protesters with "Repeal Obamacare" signs.

But they've now "stormed" the Heritage lobby, as you can see in the video (first link).

But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory...

Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea - God Bless! Keep a Big Hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."

171 You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate.
==============

I loathe Elizabeth Warren. So much so, there aren't words to articulate it. However, this line right here irks me deeply. Interchange "educate" with "healthcare" and it becomes another leftist talking point.

I want to know who these people are who paid to educate me. My remembrance is something like my parents paid property taxes (and judging by the amount, I'd say they were pretty well off) which funded my public education. Now, we are told that things like Medicare and SS are not "welfare" because people pay into them. So, the same would hold true with public education, correct?

After public education, I took steps to educate myself such as going into the military, the GI Bill (which I, too, paid into), and other avenues which I earned. No one else "paid" to educate me. It was all skin off my ass.

The same holds true for healthcare. Again, I've been paying for my own healthcare since I was 18 years old, either through military service or through my employer. No one pays for my healthcare.

Fuck her and fuck the left.

172 "I live in the Bay Area and the local media IS covering BART, just not mentioning the 'race.'"

I had predicted that the _Scum Scamfrisco Comical_ would employ their customary neutral circumlocution for the ghetto criminals who looted the train and refer to them simply as "youths".

And my prediction was ENTIRELY WRONG.

The _Comical_ instead primly reported they were "juveniles".

173 The guy is literally walking around asking everyone what they're protesting and no one can answer

I don't think it's "can't answer", more like "won't answer". They're uniform in their refusal to talk. Also, someone whispers in someone's ear apparently enforcing compliance.

179 If Sessions were actually the tough, no-nonsense, steel-balled lawman he was puffed up to be, he would have dispatched a SWAT team to the DNC to arrest the entire organization for racketeering, collusion and sedition.

At the very least, why are neither Trump nor Sessions freezing Soros' assets?

I'm getting pretty damned tired of hearing how Sessions is "threatening" or "warning" or "proposing" some action, but never seems to get around to actually doing anything.

But in the last few weeks, it became clear that in the car immediately behind Simpson and Soofi was an undercover FBI agent, who was also taking pictures of the scene just seconds before they opened fire. Once the shots were fired, the undercover FBI agent tried to flee the scene, according to a recent report by 60 Minutes.

It gets harder to hire drones when they know that they'll go to jail.

These kids are LARPing a revolution. They don't want to actually do the dirty work. (As a quick aside, I just watched Flame and Citron yesterday, about the Dutch resistance fighters during World War II, and that seems to be the sort of thing these people want to become.)

249 OT: Regarding Chris Pratt, if you're going to recant anyway, then why pipe up in the first place? I won't say it's cowardly, but c'mon - he can't antagonize his audience? Like people are going to give up their sweet sweet eye heroin Marvel movies (muh movies! muh shows!)because Chris Pratt said a nice thing about those darn flyover people?


Posted by: broseidon

Agreed. Not only that, he's stupid for recanting. People in fly over country just watched him cave. The left saw that as well, and they still aren't likely to forgive. So he's managed to antagonize both sides.

Still, the Marvel movies are designed to include interchangeable actors.

It's really the perfect franchise machine where "Thor" is more important than "Chris Hemsworth" and "Captain America" is more important than "Chris Evans".

Marvel execs know that the people are going to get more expensive with time, which is why they sign these actors to initial contracts that include options for up to 9 movies with guaranteed amounts per movie (which are a lot, but not Hollywood a lot).

IMO, part of the success of the MCU is not just continuity of story, but continuity of actors. Not that it wouldn't still make billions if they re-cast every single movie.

I've seen at least one movie with Thor in it, and at least one with Captain America (maybe the same ones?), and I realize I am in many ways not the target audience.

That being said, I could not pick Chris Hemsworth or Chris Evans out of a police lineup.

Feminist Professor "Triggered" By Male Student's Paper, Saying She Had Trouble Telling His Paper from Her Rapist

If you have trouble distinguishing a student's paper from a rape, maybe you don't actually understand rape.

Let me note that this screed was written anonymously by the professor. So we don't know who the professor was, and crucially, we don't know what the paper actually says.

She claims the student said he was skeptical that rape still exists. I tend to doubt that. I have a feeling he pointed out, correctly, that there have been a spate of fake rape accusations and that the definition of sexual assault has been reduced to a guy making a pass towards a woman who rejects it.

Add into that her hysterical, crybully damselling, calling for her knights in shining armor to come to her emotional rescue.

So I don't buy her characterizations of the "triggering" paper.

But here's what she shrieked:


A feminist professor said she was so triggered by a male student’s paper that "I began to have trouble distinguishing him from the man that [raped me]."

Writing anonymously in Inside Higher Ed, the professor described a lesson on rape culture she included in her gender class, saying she was frustrated with male students skeptical that it exists.

But one male student’s paper left her "thrown back into a pit of traumatic, fragmented memories," she wrote.

The student cited a men’' rights advocacy group, referenced a case where a woman raped a man, questioned whether feminism was relevant, and said that concerns about gender inequality were overblown.

If the guy "triggered" her post-traumatic reaction to rape, why is she also complaining about such small-ball matters like whether feminism is relevant, or if gender inequality claims are overblown?

Think about this from a position of human sanity: If someone kidnapped and maimed a person, would the victim, in the course of narrating the crime to police, also toss in "I think he voted for Trump" and "I'm skeptical of some of the websites I saw him reading"?

...

"As I went over his paper," she wrote, "I realized that I was reading a paper that sounded word for word like something the man who raped me would say. And not only did this sound like something my rapist would say, this student fit the same demographic profile as him: white, college male, between the ages of 18 and 22."

She said she was so upset that she could no longer grade papers or read.

"Although I knew it was unlikely that this student would literally try to rape me, his words felt so familiar that I began having trouble distinguishing him from the man that did...."

I didn't want to steal the whole thing, but trust me when I say there's some nice crazy kickers at the end.

More: David French excerpts another part of this screed, revealing that the prof seems especially keen on explaining to students that don't know they've been raped that they've been raped, or to students who don't know they're rapists that they're rapists. And she gets upset by the "mansplaining" that then occurs as non-rapists resist her new definitions of rape.

31 Funny thing about PTSD. It's real enough. Those who suffer from it, the flood of emotions and memories can be so real, it IS like reliving the event, regardless of the trigger.

Here's the thing though: If you suffer from PTSD, this is YOUR problem. You CANNOT demand that the world adjust to your affliction.

You can try, but you're always going to lose that battle.

And I don't believe a damned thing about this broad and her perfessoring. Somebody's idea of creative writing, I suspect.

Somebody commented yesterday about the huge prevalence of MILF and Stepmother/stepson pronography lately. Since I imagine that most pron is directed at, and feeds the fantasies of young males, I have a suspicion that that group is little interested in females of similar age.

If you are this emotionally scarred you shouldn't be teaching, let alone teaching a subject that requires you to discuss so-called "rape culture."

I have no sympathy for this professor. None.

Very possible. Given that there's the bit about how the student's paper disputes that rape actually exists. It's very possible he wrote something disputing HER definition of rape.

Bad date, unwelcomed leering/hooting, etc. If he wrote a paper saying "that's not rape," then yeah, his words are very much of the same sort that might be her experience.

"'thrown back into a pit of traumatic, fragmented memories'..."

"so upset that she could no longer grade papers or read..."

"'unlikely that this student would literally try to rape me'..."

Hey, keeds, can you say "cry for help"? I know you can.



Commenters have already covered anything I would say.

♦ Vic: "Someone should be fired for hiring this loon."

Now, Vic... Maybe she wasn't (so obviously) this way when she was hired? Or, nowadays, maybe they hired her because she is this way!



Bicentennialguy: "...onus is on her to seek mental health services to get over her issues."

Exactly to the point. Also,

Bicentennialguy: "...this student is a proxy for revenge against her rapist (if it even happened)...."

And Daddy. Don't forget revenge against Daddy.



BurtTC: "...Somebody's idea of creative writing, I suspect."

{{Prof: It really happened if I believe it really happened!!}}

127 The comments on the original Inside Higher Ed column are closed after only 20-something comments total. Gee, I wonder why? I assume a lot of people were posting comments along the lines of, "Seriously, lady? You're an idiot who shouldn't be teaching" instead of the expected sympathetic comments she probably wanted. I know the comments I skimmed were of the latter variety, which I find incredibly suspect.

128 And the scary part is she got a lot of sympathetic feedback from the commenters, who are likely part of the education establishment. What she should have been told is to resign and get mental health counseling (likely the high voltage kind with heavy doses of psychotropics-the kiddie stuff wouldn't work on that diseased brain).

Yup.

Maybe this is because her lectures on rape culture defines rape down to such a degree that it includes bad sex or morning after regret? Naw!

136 Why would you think about the person while grading a paper?

She says she was having trouble, while grading, distinguishing the student in her mind from this other person she knew, apparently, well enough to have an enduring sense of his personality.

Again--who grades by thinking about the person who wrote the paper? One should just evaluate the paper on its own merits, yes? It should be immaterial if the paper were written by a man or a woman, young or old, etc. Grading is separate from what one knows or experiences of the student outside of that assignment, or should be.

164 I further deduce from this article that:

1. This professor's identity as a rape victim is the alpha and omega of her personna. It defines her. She defines herself by it.

2. Therefore, every time she instructs on the topic, her own personal identity is actually the subject.

3. Her re-definition of rape must leave open the question of what actually happened to her--whether the rest of society would call it rape.

4. Anyone who then questions this redefined version of rape is blowing up her very identity.

5. Your tax dollars have been an invaluable part of this process.
