42 I seem to recall a flap about 30 years ago when a suburban parish's deputies were entertaining themselves, and cleaning up the neighborhood, by shooting the nutria running around the open drainage canals. (Yes, Virginia, Noo Awlins' suburbs have open drainage canals all over. There are occasional fences, but it's still possible on a dark rainy night to drive into the canal and drown.)

But of course, CA's officials won't do that.

151 Around here, I mostly have to deal with moose in the yard, on the street, and in the school yard. We have one very naughty young bull that hangs around the house and causes any amount of havoc.

A couple of weeks ago the boy was down the street at a friend's house, and called to say he was going to be late because he couldn't walk home past the moose. So, DH got in the truck and drove three houses down to pick him up.

This is the same bull who stripped the apples off my sweet apple tree, drooled all over the deck, and then broke off branches because he couldn't get to the ones higher up.

If I didn't live in town, he would be happily residing on my freezer by now.

They're big toothy freshwater fish, found mainly in the Mississippi river and tributaries. Usually just called gars.

They are about like a fresh water shark, and can get pretty big. You would not necessarily want to tangle with one, especially a bigger one (8-10 feet long, Alligator gars).

The attack rabbit thing happened in '79 or '80, while Carter was president . . . so the question answers itself. Mondale would have become president and run -- disastrously, one would assume -- against Reagan in 1980. No real historical effect.

But it would have been FUNNY. Garfield and McKinley and Kennedy all brought down by lone assassins . . . and Carter gets it from a vicious bunny attack.

167 As part of the upcoming Harry and Meghan marital extravaganza, "Crown Jewels Heritage Condoms" are being made available, at the low, low price of 10 Pounds for a box of 4.

Described as being "fit for a prince", the box features a picture of the happy couple.

As the box is opened, the British and American national anthems ring out, presumably to induce standing at attention.

169 125 A team of biologists has been trained to trap the nutria. And it can difficult to tell the difference between nutria and non-threatening animals like beavers, otters and muskrats

"It's tricky to identify them. We have wildlife biologists, PhDs out there trying to understand and identify them. It's been challenging," said Tira.

PhDs, man. P ... h ... Ds!!

The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

This reminds me of a short story, "The Garden Party," by Katherine Mansfield, in which the huge divide between two social classes is used as a backdrop. One character has no concept of how the other class lives, and when I read this story I remember thinking, "What a twit."

America is the same way. And it is very possible that the seemingly unbridgeable divide between the ignorant elites who are afraid of the very idea of guns and the normals who up until now looked at them with mild amusement, thinking, "What twits," will take a more significant turn. I cannot imagine how we can coexist.

Woman calls cops on man playing with his kids at park because she was afraid of his pro-gun shirt

Blue Lives Matter reported that Benbrook Police Department Cpl. J. Reese said the woman did indeed call police on Johnston, and described him as a “suspicious person” who had a “gun holstered to his chest” and wearing the offensive T-shirt.

When Reese arrived at the park, he spoke with the woman, who said that Johnston was “was making other parents on the playground very uncomfortable with his T-shirt.”

“The subject did not act threatening to anyone, nor did he threaten anyone,” Reese noted, and later described Johnston as “polite.”

“She was not scared of the gun,” Reese added. “[She] was concerned about his T-shirt.”

According to Johnston, who “voluntarily identified himself” to Reese, he offered to show his gun permit to police.

“They didn’t ask,” Johnston told Blue Lives Matter.

76 I had something happen to me some years back that's apropos here. I was out for a Sunday morning walk in the town park where I then lived in western NY, on a nice, sunny morning, wearing jeans, t-shirt, hiking boots, my backpack and a random baseball cap I grabbed which happened to have the Winchester logo on it.

As I was walking in the park I heard someone shouting at me and turned to see a large, sweaty guy lumbering towards me, yelling his head off. This fatty fascist then started berating me, calling me "one of them survivalist tea party militia traitors" and waving his cell phone at me telling me he was going to call the sheriff because I was "scaring people" in the park.

I guess the hiking boots made me a survivalist militia member? Or the backpack? I guess it was just the Winchester logo because he was very upset about my hat and kept ordering me to take it off. At one point, the corpulent creep said I was "worse than ISIS and for all he knew I was a terrorist."

But I got really lucky. My mom happened to be a long-time employee of the town police dept. (since retired) which was almost within eyeshot of the park. I got out my own phone and told the Hefty Himmler: "Why call the sheriff when the town police are right over there? This isn't the sheriff's jurisdiction. Call the cops on me-my mother is the dispatcher, she'll take your call. No, really, use my phone, I have the direct number on speed-dial. I insist. Maybe you can talk to the judge while you're at it. He's my Godfather (also true.)"

I walked away whistling while the bloated bozo muttered impotent threats at me.

180 A now former FB friend of mine was a 20 year tort lawyer, assured me (and everyone in the Atlantic thread) that an NRA member could be liable for a murder (like the one in FL, this was over the Delta/NRA flap) committed by someone with a gun, because the NRA advocates such dangerous policy. (she meant in a tort I guess, not for the actual murder)

I refuted that and she went personal, accused me of "mansplaining", and worse. I looked up what she tried to use as grounds (in nasty condescending tone) and it had been refuted by the NRA back in 1991, and she even admitted no judge had ruled as she wished. But these SJWs flood every site, and I assume the FB dictators will toss out people that argue. I actually got some questionnaire thing from FB, (presumably) since I argued WrongThink, and someone(bot) probably complained.

Anyway, this is the NYTimes from 1991, on how the left tried to make gun makers liable, and it includes an NRA response.

It is also a violation 18 U.S. Code 241 "conspiring to threaten or intimidate".

No, I disagree: it's about demonizing gun owners. They want you to think it's about guns, because it is not against the law to oppress guns, which have no rights, but it is a federal felony to oppress the rights of gun owners. They don't want to be arrested for that felony so they shrewdly misdirect you as to what they are doing. You have simply fallen for their Jedi mind trick.

Dunno. IIRC, the operator wrapped the microwave oven in a blanket of fiberglass insulation, opened the door and placed the ore inside of the oven (the ore in a crucible, I think). All sorts of sparks and glowing metal as the process proceeded. Mostly it was a project to make a knife starting with the smelting.

FWIW during my brief time in Uganda I got the impression that their definition of marriage is not the same as in the west.
It doesn't necessarily mean a ceremony with a the signing of a certificate. Polygamy is still a reality in parts of Africa. People who have just started living together appear to call themselves married.
The definition of marriage is not radically different, but it does appear to be different.

File that under answers to questions nobody is asking.

1. I send my children to private schools. You must send yours to public institutions run by socialist unions.
2. I have family investments and trust with long term investments taxed at less than 20% and not subject to SS deductions. You must take 16% right off the top of your salary and then throw in another 25% of your salary so that we can spend your money wisely.
3. We protect our families and marriages. You are penalized for being married and working, our liberal judges in divorce courts will turn your children against, and we will become the defacto head of the family.

Point of order: "smelting" is the process of winning metal from its ores. Foundries cast metal into useful products. Smelters may pour ingots of the metals they produce, but that is not considered foundry work. Ingots are the raw material that a foundry starts with (although many use scrap, too).

Not sure if it's Angola or Uganda, but one of those countries pushed pre-marital abstinence very hard, and managed to quell the spread of AIDS. Without condoms and a lot of nonsense about sex with virgins, etc.

Funny how moral living is better and somewhat disease free.

"It's a real estate meeting. We've been working on this for months," Robinson said. "We're days away from changing our whole entire situation, our lives, and you about to sit here telling me I can't do that? You're not doing that."

Besides the fact that this is hysterical, they think that the argument that they have A RIGHT to use someone's store for meetings is the way to go. LOL. They worked so hard on this "real estate deal" which is so important that they are doing it in a cafe - and in a cafe where they can't be bothered to order a small (Super-Mega-Grande, I guess is the Starbucks term) coffee.

425 The guy that led our concealed carry class is a county deputy, heads up the police department range, and is on two swat teams in local jurisdictions. He advises, like all the good instructors do, to work on carrying really concealed. Loose clothing, no printing.


I am against open carry for numerous reasons more to do with losing the element of surprise.

The nice thing about open carry is, when carrying concealed and your gun is inadvertently exposed, it's ok.

And yes, Texas had a prohibition against "printing" and it inadvertently showing. Even on accident.

428 I'm sure others have mentioned it by now but it is an avowed tactic by the anti-gunners to call the cops on anyone open carrying to report a person with a gun. Now, do I know that this woman is part of that group? No, no, I do not. But I do know that the actions she took, namely, calling the police to say there was a man with a gun and a t-shirt and it was threatening, falls exactly within the openly discussed tactics of some anti-gun groups.

In other words, she wasn't threatened at all. She was specifically attempting to create an incident with the cops in order to get that man arrested or worse.

idk, but Chelsea's name is all over those illegal "charities", as I hear it. The Clintons did a classic move of operating different charities with almost the same name ... Bill even studied how to do this (well, studied how it is not supposed to be done) ... so there were different "charities" with very close to the same names. Then accounts get opened and money gets laundered through the not really a charity accounts.

Apparently that should be easily discovered by a variety of audits, so the Clinton magic is to make sure they somehow escape all those audits, for decades. And still ... they persist ... they are still collecting money, while our FBI tries diligently to remove Trump.

this is Charles Ortel ... who did a lot of work on this before John Solomon ...

He shot a mugger dead on the street in Seattle in the 1960's, and no charges were ever filed.

There was a time when guns were considered tools, which is what they are. Now, we call men women and women men, and guns jump up and shoot kids all of the time.

Informing on fellw citizens in order to get them in trouble with the government... " see something, say something".... whether it is something, or not.
Yeah, surveillance state.


It's a blatant attempt to Soviet-ize our society, to turn everyone against everyone else ala Russia.
Divide and conquer.

The root of this trend amongst the "woke" is a toxic combination of Marxism and Postmodernism, which results in Progressivism. Notice that the default position in all those ideologies is the very worst of human nature.

I hope the cop that responded to the hysterical anti-gun, T-shirt-fearing mentally-ill harpy gave her a lesson in the First Amendment and warned her that the next time she wasted valuable and expensive officer time and resources for no legal reason, she's get hauled in.

Mr.Jen and I attended a speaking engagement by Heather MacDonald at Hillsdale last night. Her topic was the danger of the MeToo movement. She had some very enlightening things to say about the movement and the destruction it is causing. At some point, Hillsdale will post a video of her speech online.

She warned us that when the transgender movement peaks as it will even though its at the top of the pyramid right now, something worse will take it's place. Which she didn't know for certain what it will be exactly, but she said we likely won't be able to imagine it.

38 OK, here's where I call bullshit. The waterfalls are spectacular, but where do they come from? If they're going to keep falling from roughly lake level, or whatever we call how full the cup is, then they must be replenished.

There's obviously no room for a natural spring above them, so it has to be pumped up through the stem of the glass. And then you'd need some awfully sophisticated valve technology for Titan to pick it up and take a drink and pick the sailing ships out of his teeth and put it back down again and have the waterfalls still work.

I do not believe that that sort of valve technology existed back then.

Well, Jack has posited that the boats get scooped up when Titan scoops up a gobletfull from the lake. I'll accept that.

Then the question is whether the waterfalls are permanent. If they're constant then you need a source of water from below, which means massive pumps and some sort of advanced valve technology that allows the goblet to reconnect with the source the minute that Titan sets it down.

It is perhaps a simpler explanation that this polaroid was taken the minute that Titan set the glass down and the waterfalls are ephemeral.

This is a type of Romanticism that focused on fantasy themes and imagery. There might be a social commentary here about how humans, who think there are the apex of Creation and superior to all things, are actually puny and powerless compared to the unknown. That's up to you, though. Cole is more known for his romantic American landscapes, so this type of theme is unusual for him.This kinda reminds me of Goya's "Colossus", but Cole's painting has a more ambiguous mood: https://tinyurl.com/zsn6lpa Goya's may be an allegory of the French under Napoleon.

150 Well, Jack has posited that the boats get scooped up when Titan scoops up a gobletfull from the lake. I'll accept that.

Then the question is whether the waterfalls are permanent. If they're constant then you need a source of water from below, which means massive pumps and some sort of advanced valve technology that allows the goblet to reconnect with the source the minute that Titan sets it down.

It is perhaps a simpler explanation that this polaroid was taken the minute that Titan set the glass down and the waterfalls are ephemeral.

Posted by: Nevergiveup at April 19, 2018 09:54 AM (gtBZ4)


True story, a friend of mine was traveling overseas with a senior USG official. Since they both traveled a lot they were United Golden Executive card holders or something like that. On an overseas flight to Japan, once they got settled in, and in First Class of course, the stewardess came down the aisle and said to the USG type "Oh hi there Ms Smith, would you like your usual cocktail today?"

yeah, that is absurd. But imo a good approach to counter them may be to agree the young Hogg is brave and idealistic, (as most of us were till we spent time in the real world) ... but that youthful exuberance is easily misguided, and that the far left has used and abused these children.

Ingraham survived the attacks on her, but if she had attacked the leftists that push socialism/communism, but praised the 'activist' side of Hogg, she may have gotten better mileage. To call him whiny is "punching down", and down to a stupid kid no less.

Same with many of the useful idiots, just always scorn them as tools of the evil manipulators and anti-American globalists. To argue directly with the insane is to fight the smokescreen.

The target needs to be the ones refusing to yield to popular opinion ... close the border, tough on trade cheats (which is all of the other countries), push gun rights for protection, etc. We need to be the parent, those like Whoopi or Behar are the ignorant tools, it is "beneath us adults" to argue with their raw hate.

There's obviously no room for a natural spring above them, so it has to be pumped up through the stem of the glass. And then you'd need some awfully sophisticated valve technology for Titan to pick it up and take a drink and pick the sailing ships out of his teeth and put it back down again and have the waterfalls still work.

I do not believe that that sort of valve technology existed back then.

I wonder how much of all the disruption going on now is Politics lagging Technology.

Centralization made sense when we couldn't communicate as easily as we can now. But the Information Age has changed that ... making smaller, distributed cells more practical than ever. Yet - Government and Business seems to be fighting that evolution tooth and nail.

383 interesting interview with Michael Savage talking to his lawyer, who also happened to represent a former president of Ukraine, and had some interesting thoughts. One being on Sessions letting this attack on Trump's lawyer happen ... that Trump may need to purge these guys, that Obama changed who would fill the position if senate refused to approve someone new (Obama had changed it to a DC person, Trump back in 2017 changed it back to the Virginia ??? ... someone he appointed.

Sessions may be letting the Grassley work continue, and we have Huber at work ... but the RINOs (and it seems Sessions as well) want to replace Trump with Pence (a good globalist party man at heart). Public opinion is the last thing stopping them (DeepState/Establishment) from overruling the election.

Trump won an election everyone thought he should lose, while GOPe politicos are losing elections everywhere that everyone think they should easily win.

And what is the political lesson the GOPe draws from these losses? "If only", McTurtle says, "more quasi-Democrats would run as Republicans, we might win!"

Yes. On Tuesday. Big reveal was yesterday. Eye seems to be fine. I can see to drive, and also can read the PC screen with it, not using glasses. Have my reading glasses on for the other eye, and they actually make the vision from my right eye (the one done) blurry. I am going to buy a couple of pairs of dollar store readers, and make a pair with a strong lens on the left side, and a weak one on the right.
With my regular contact lens in the left side, I can see fine to drive. Go in for the left side surgery in June. Procedure took about 15 minutes, done under local anaesthetic. Not painful.

In fact, about the only people who showed up for his book signing in DC a couple of days ago were reporters, and I assume that was about the same at the Barnes and (ig)Noble in Union Square in NYC yesterday. Actually, I see that that's precisely what happened, except he got heckled by "far right" reporter Laura Loomer who shouted "you're going to get locked up!" Not so nutty-sounding; a recent poll shows a sizable chunk of Americans would like to see that happen.

Meanwhile, Bob Goodlatte is pushing to have the Comey memos released, which of course would prove that this entire investigation is as we have known all along a concocted witch hunt to overthrow the President. And that's why the shambling walking colostomy bag called Jerrold Nadler is squealing like a pig because he knows this all too well, and that if they are released Mueller will be shut down.

Meanwhile, the real high crimes, treason, gonniffing and miscellaneous meshugas of Hillary Clinton barely registers on the radar, as the ex-business partner of the Awans' dad claims that all the stolen data (wiped, like, with a cloth) is now in the hands of the Pakistani government.

On the foreign policy front, as the Korean situation evolves in ways that no one could have imagined (the NorKs past disingenuousness notwithstanding), on the heels of Secretary of State Pompeo's visit with Whoa, Fat!, PDT is stating that he will not be playing games and will walk away from a summit if he senses his counterpart is doing so. In any case both Rush and Daniel Greenfield are marveling at his successes which, along with the aforementioned old lady's crimes, goes either unnoticed or distorted by the Democrat-Media Complex to look like disasters. But you knew that already, and that's why you come here, gentle reader.

In related news, as our southern border is now the entry point for growing numbers of illegal aliens being smuggled in from Bangladesh, Paul Ryno and the GOP-e CoC-servatives are planning on doing something - attempting to ram home an Amnesty bill right before the midterms. Amazing how they are motivate to act when it's to sell out the American people.

Speaking of politics, bearing the above in mind, the so-called Democrat "blue wave" at least at this stage is looking more and more like wish-casting. As PDT's achievements take hold, specifically deregulation and the tax cuts, the Democrats are becoming more and more shrill in their attacks against him, the second amendment, the first amendment and American values in general. It's a complete turnoff to most normal people, and yet the propagandists continue to pluck that chicken. Saner (if you could call it that) heads on the Left are getting nervous that the calls to impeach PDT could backfire bigly come November. But still, they'll persist. In fact there's a link that the Democrats are hot and horny to make, get this, reparations a major part of the party platform in the next few years. And then there's that pornographic parade float of hatred and obscenity what calls itself a professor from Fresno State. QED. All that said, the GOP, if it in fact actually did represent our interests, are positioned to utterly destroy the Democrat-Left for at least a generation. But as we all know, that's not their job. It's too preserve, protect and defend the New Deal, Great Society and Hope & Change until they can throw an election and reinstall a Democrat majority. No wonder you get the attitude of the guy who'll vote for convicted felon Michael Grimm rather than allow the Dems to take over. What a revolting choice we seem to always face. Something's gotta give. Feh.

From hither and yon, evidently H.R. McMaster's father was found dead and the incident has now been ruled suspicious. Meanwhile the ATF is investigating 704 pounds of TNT gone missing from a Pennsylvania construction site. Stop me if you've heard this one: people keep telling you that it's no longer safe for Jews to walk the streets of major European cities wearing Stars of David or yarmulkes. You tell them they're crazy and just to prove it's a myth, you put a yarmulke on your head. See? No problemo! And then, some random Muzzy sees you, takes off his belt and starts whipping on you. Man, what a buzz-kill.

Lastly, today marks the 75th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Alone, half-starved and after watching thousands of their relatives die from disease, starvation and then later, mass deportation to the Treblinka extermination camp, a few hundred or so managed to hold off the German police and even Waffen SS units for a few weeks armed only with a couple pistols and molotov cocktails. Rather than be slaughtered, they chose to fight and die for their honor. And five years later, the fighting spirit of those martyrs laid the foundation for the modern state of Israel, which was born five years later and today celebrates its 70th Anniversary.

And still, they persist...

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

18 That particular photo has always haunted me. I believe it was used as the cover for the book The Kingdom of Auschwitz.

In other news, I missed that yesterday was the anniversary of the release of Theda Bara's last movie, the 1926 Hal Roach comedy Madame Mystery.

https://tinyurl.com/ybmcpvux

She played an International Woman of Mystery who was smuggling a "helium nitrate" bomb, with predictable comedic results. She seems, from surviving accounts, to have had fun parodying her vamp persona, but her husband didn't care for the idea and forbid her from making another film with Roach. As it turned out, MM would be her last film.

It still survives, in a cut-down, rather deteriorated condition, a sad end to a legendary career.

21 The reason McMasters Sr.'s death is being called 'suspicious' is they believe the body was moved:

"While health authorities initially ruled the death an accident, police are investigating the possibility that he fell and hit his head, and then was put in a chair and died without receiving proper care."

Most likely just nursing home problem.

Josef Goebbels had a fim made documenting Jewish life in the Warsaw ghetto. Totally faked it and obviously did not show scenes of dead, emaciated bodies lying naked on the curb.

Cleansed as it was, and wanting to put Jews in a bad light, he still shelved it thinking that somehow Germans would get the wrong idea and take pity on them.

Army Group South wasn't sent to the Caucasus to power the Nazi war machine or link up with the pro-Nazi Middle East. Hitler wanted to seize the oilfields there so he could global warm more by burning Russian oil.

"Our Investment Stewardship team engages with companies when there is a material risk to your long-term investment, which is why we are meeting with the leaders of gun manufacturers and distributors. We want to know how they will mitigate the risks associated with their products and the impact regulations or other actions will have on their long-term value. We believe that when a business poses a risk to society, it can also pose a risk to investors.

105 I have to disagree with Levin here. Gorsuch didn't "side with leftists" in that court case. I think that's a bit hyperbolic, and a poor characterization of what happened.

Gorsuch ruled on a point of law. And (IMHO) it was a valid point.

Basically the ruling said that part of a certain law was too vague. Which if you look at it objectively it was. And that's what judges are supposed to, rule objectively.

Also, it wasn't a major blow to anybody's agenda. It wasn't that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things and there's plenty of opportunity to rewrite said law and clarify the point in the future.

The actual Truth of the story is far more interesting, and something causes modern Enviro's to start foaming at the mouth if anyone dares to mention it. In 1935, Germany's new Nazi government was the first in the world to pass a sweeping environmental "protection" law, called the "Reichsnatureshutzgezetz" (Reich Nature Protection Law) which purported to protect all wild flora and fauna, and also allowed the Nazi Government to seize any land it wished without compensation to the current owners, in the interest of Environmental Protection. Similarly, Goering was named "Reichforstmeister" (Reich Forest Master) and any development or use of Germany's forested areas had to be cleared through him.

In a very real and literal sense, Nazi Germany is the father of today's Green movement. They were the pioneers of every policy the Greens favor today.

What I still find amazing is the GOP has had the chance to reform so many things that the poisonous Democrats have corrupted in this country.
Yet even though they could keep their hands in the till if they aggressively pursued a popular agenda they refuse to do so and appear to be deliberately scheming to ensure President Trump will be thwarted at every turn and voters won't even have the option in 2018 of saying "Yes, my Congressman is a corrupt sleazy lying worthless Republican, but at least he's better than his Democrat opponent!"

I think it's another reason that Levin never rises above the level of a second rate pundit, even though he's always had the chance. I'm not sure if he simply isn't capable of really thinking through the second and third level ramifications of so much of what is going on today, or if (like Ann Coulter, in my opinion) he actually is aware, but he's so sold on being a ranting polemicist that he buries all honest analysis and simply rants away on what he thinks his audience is going to cheer for on any given day.

The big "tell" in this case is his attempt to tie this to illegal immigration, when not one single word in the case as decided had anything at all to do with illegal immigration.

166 I have been looking at sources, and while I must say this was just my opinion at first, I can now say that every serious legal scholar that has looked at Gorsuch's opinion in this case has agreed that he ruled exactly Scalia would have ruled. In fact, his entire opinion consisted of words and ideas lifted from Scalia's own opinions, and Kennedy, Alito, and Thomas, who disagreed with Gorsuch here, also disagreed with Scalia on the primary case that Gorsuch cited.

Scalia was the best conservative mind on the Court in several generations. Gorsuch is a man who thinks on almost exactly the same lines as Scalia did, and he did so in this opinion. That is not just my opinion - that has been repeated across the legal community in recent days.

170 "The actual Truth of the story is far more interesting, and something causes modern Enviro's to start foaming at the mouth if anyone dares to mention it. In 1935, Germany's new Nazi government was the first in the world to pass a sweeping environmental "protection" law, called the "Reichsnatureshutzgezetz" (Reich Nature Protection Law) which purported to protect all wild flora and fauna, and also allowed the Nazi Government to seize any land it wished without compensation to the current owners, in the interest of Environmental Protection. Similarly, Goering was named "Reichforstmeister" (Reich Forest Master) and any development or use of Germany's forested areas had to be cleared through him.

In a very real and literal sense, Nazi Germany is the father of today's Green movement. They were the pioneers of every policy the Greens favor today. --Tom Servo"

Quite so. We forget that Nazi propaganda was successful, among other reasons, because it was an alluring mixture of pre-scientific mysticism and rationalizing pseudo-science: an incredibly attractive combination for many who were completely alienated by modern life, and the horrors of the recent war.

It was blood-and-soil, and the mystical connections between a mythologized German people and its soil, and at the same time rationalized by pseudo-scientific "race" theory.

Very much like the Global Warmening folks who want to feel a connection to Mother Gaia, who are also reassured by a garbage-heap of pseudo-science to justify their "superior" stance on the planet, and not incidentally, their hatred of any opposing or even questioning view. The resulting fanaticism and violence of the hard, green left is not surprising.

Not so unrelated, and perhaps not original: Donald Trump has truly become Emmanuel Goldstein, or rather, an Emmanuel Goldstein mask has been fitted to Trump. Except the 2 minutes Hate has been replaced by the 24/7 news cycle of hate.

However there a incentives to pass such laws because they allow lawmakers to hide what they are doing. "This law doesn't do what my opponents claim, see right here" *points to vague words*

No Court ruling will stop poorly written laws from being created because there is a political incentive to make laws vague that is very hard to stop. And worse a law or ruling saying that laws can't be vague, is itself vague and open to interpretation.

Levins main point is valid, the case revolved around immigration law not criminal law.

The threshold for due process has always been lower for immigration law.

So now with this idiotic presidence we will have to delinieate all possible types of crimes or make it so broad that some future court will have a 2nd bite at striking it down due to vagueness or some such bullshit that they invent to institute their policy preference.

And this whole vagueness argument is bullshit anyway there are many laws that are vague or have vague concepts like the takings clause for instance, remeber the Kelo debacle.

Gorsuch sides with the Liberals and hurt our ability to expel illeagal aliens.

222 No Court ruling will stop poorly written laws from being created because there is a political incentive to make laws vague that is very hard to stop. And worse a law or ruling saying that laws can't be vague, is itself vague and open to interpretation."

to take the Second part - actually, the judicial opinion is not vague at all, because how that plays out is that the law in question is void, until it is rewritten and passed again. It must be done on a law by law basis, but that's what happened here. No vagueness about that. The Legislature gets a do-over until they get it right.

To state again why this case means so much, and why it gripes me that so many don't see what it was about - my biggest complain with the 4 existing "conservative" Justices (but Kennedy is no conservative, believe me) is that they have no problem at all with the size or power of Government, they just want it to do the things they want it to do. Gorsuch, like Scalia before him, is probably the ONLY person on the Court today who actually believe that the powers which the appointed Bureaucracy has should be limited by the Constitution. I think it will be his lifelong goal to try and accomplish that, and although a single opinion is just one step, he did more along those line with his single opinion this week than anyone except Scalia has done in a generation.

And although I respect Thomas's opinions in many matters, I read his opinion here, and Thomas said plainly that the precedent Gorsuch cited as controlling in this case, an opinion written by Scalia, should not have been used because Thomas thought Scalia was full of shit in the prior case, and Thomas had been in the opposition then as well.

257 Decision time -

Since I brought up carry.

I carry the H&K USP 45. I shoot it very well. Alas, it has a 10 round capacity.

My Glock 17 with mag extender holds 20 rounds. And while I may not be as much of a nail driver with it as I am with the H&K, at self defense ranges I'm OK.

Ammo choice for both are Winchester Ranger.

With the threat I'm seeing now starting to skew toward multiple people instead of just one guy wanting to rape me or whatever, is it worth making the allowance for added ammo capacity? I could carry an extra mag for the H&K, but I'd rather have the ammo already in the gun.

We disagree on what it has the potential good to do in the future. You believe it will help prevent bad vague laws. I agree that preventing vague laws is good thing, but I do not believe it will prevent vague laws because they are a immutable part of human nature and the incentives to create vague laws are too strong.

"Yes. It wasn't a total loss, but it was a loss nonetheless."



If a law is written so poorly that it will present issues with
implementation or enforcement, than shooting it down is probably a good
thing.



Watching the latest Maryland Legislative Session, particularly
concerning legislation effecting gun rights shows what the potential
negative impact of poorly or vaguely written laws can be.

Posted by: Village Idiot's Apprentice at April 19, 2018 08:29 AM (6t8+a)

The take away here is that the more vague the wording of a law, the more open to the interpretation of the enforcer it is. Which means that person's PERSONAL interpretation. Which means his or her politics. This is the essence of lawlessness.
The laws have to be as specific as possible so they can be objectively enforced.

Exactly.

The only possible way I could see some progress is that health insurance premium costs be apportioned based on a yearly health assessment:

weight
blood pressure
height to waist ratio

Some other stuff, too. There's currently no reward/punishment system in effect. Of course, I have a feeling that if you started punishing people with higher premiums they'd stop paying for insurance before they'd stop eating crap.

Posted by: Agent Cooper at April 19, 2018 09:15 AM (oyCqX)

Yes and there is also a fundamental human hard wiring at work too called "strategic ambiguity"

All communication is imperfect and no one fully understands so our brains fill in the gaps with assumptions.

As a broad example:
Trump says: They're not sending their best, they're sending rapists, drug dealers and some I assume are good people.

Reps hear: deport the criminal immigrants

Dems hear: All immigrants are criminals.


So, the vague laws that allow the maximum number of people to fill in assumtions that they support, will have the greatest chance of being passed. As such, many many laws will be vaguely worded because it's harder to build a consensus to support a specific law.

"Deport for crimes of violence"

Reps hear: deport the criminals immigrants

Dems hear: only deport the worst of violent immigrants

And you get a vague law passed and run for reelection

That's an over-reaction. Gorsuch was only deciding if a second burglary, therefore aggravated, constitutes a crime of violence. I'd say yes because it creates a situation ripe for violence. But Gorsuch said no. That is defensible--and certainly does not constitute a complete sell-out by Justice Gorsuch.

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“The growth of the Internet will slow drastically, as the flaw in ‘Metcalfe’s law’—which states that the number of potential connections in a network is proportional to the square of the number of participants—becomes apparent: most people have nothing to say to each other! By 2005 or so, it will become clear that the Internet’s impact on the economy has been no greater than the fax machine’s.” -Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman, 1998, via Zero Hedge


Quote II

“Republican Party swampers in Washington have come to the surface to oppose my candidacy for the U.S. Senate.”

“West Virginians are aware that McConnell cannot vote in their election. They want him to mind his own business and do his job. A job he has not done now for over 30 years. Balance the budget Mitch and stay out of West Virginia, Don Blakenship


Quote III

“Sean Hannity is an advocate for Donald Trump,” Limbaugh added. “And in this day and age, advocates for Donald Trump are no different than Trump in that they have to be destroyed, they have to be targeted, they have to be held up for ridicule because it’s all about getting Trump. Every bit of this is about getting Donald Trump. The Washington establishment cannot allow for Donald Trump to succeed. He’s an outsider.” Rush Limbaugh

*****

Never, ever, never did we see this coming.

A new study suggests that transgender and gender non-conforming children and adolescents may be more likely to develop depression and other mental health conditions, compared with individuals whose gender identity matches their assigned gender at birth.

Researchers have identified a greater risk of mental health conditions among youth who are transgender and gender non-conforming.
The research was conducted at the Kaiser Permanente Southern California Department of Research & Evaluation in Pasadena. Study co-author Tracy A. Becerra-Culqui, Ph.D., and colleagues recently reported their findings in the journal Pediatrics.


*****


Nothing. Nothing is too good for our kids or our money.

The National Science Foundation is expanding a study of transgender children as young as three years old, giving the project's researcher an additional $1 million.

Kristina Olson, a researcher at the University of Washington, received the 2018 Alan T. Waterman Award, the nation's "highest honor for a young scientist or engineer," for her work studying the gender identities of toddlers.

Jefferson, Iowa had a good idea. Their P.R. campaign wasn't.

The small town of Jefferson, Iowa, has suspended its program of shooting feral cats after a public outcry condemning the town's actions as inhumane.

In the aftermath of the uproar, The Washington Post reports that,

City administrator Mike Palmer said Friday that Mayor Craig Berry told council members Tuesday that he’d discussed the practice in a meeting with officials from the Animal Protection and Education organization and the Animal Rescue League of Iowa. The decision to suspend the shooting of feral cats came soon after that.

Politicians who don't pussy-foot around. I like that.

Zuckerberg thought the grilling he had on Capitol Hill was bad. This could be worse for Face Book, a billion dollar lawsuit.

Facebook could owe billions of dollars for using facial recognition after a judge approved a pending lawsuit against the social network.

California judge James Donato ruled on Monday that the lawsuit, first filed in 2015, will finally proceed as a class-action case. It alleges Facebook is in violation of an Illinois state law that prohibits the collection of biometric data without written consent.

Three plaintiffs are seeking $5,000 in penalties per offense for every time Facebook used facial recognition on a user in Illinois without their explicit permission. There is a chance Facebook could owe millions of people as the case includes users in the state who the social network created and stored facial recognition algorithms for after June 7, 2011, when the “tag suggestions” tool launched. Judge Donato put the extent of the damages into perspective, “Facebook seems to believe statutory damages could amount to billions of dollars.”


*****


Lies, damned lies and statistics.

Someone in the 19th century (Mark Twain attributed it to Benjamin Disraeli, but that’s dubious) said that there are three forms of lying: lies, damned lies, and statistics. If you would like a beautiful example of the last category of mendacity, check out David Leonhardt’s April 15th column in the New York Times, entitled (try not to laugh) “The Democrats Are the Party of Fiscal Responsibility.”

The creepy little f*cker is at it again. Parkland HS agitator calling for more boycotts.

After starting an advertiser boycott of Fox News Channel host Laura Ingraham, gun-control activist David Hogg has set his sights on two new targets — iconic gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson and its capital backers.

In a series of tweets Tuesday afternoon, Mr. Hogg sicced his 764,000 Twitter followers on five investment companies, singling out two most of all — Blackrock and Vanguard Group.


Wouldn't it be a shame if backers of these companies demonstrated in front of his basement bedroom. Wink/Nod

The Softest Generation whining that the sky is falling.

The Washington Post informed its readers this month that college students are going hungry, in a report titled, “The hidden crisis on college campuses: Many students don’t have enough to eat.” Two days later, the Kansas City Star reported even more urgently, “Think college students are privileged? Nearly a third are hungry and homeless.” So what’s going on? Are American college students really going hungry and living on the streets?

Eh, not so much.

April 19, 2013, Storm Thorgerson, whose album cover artwork includes Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of The Moon died aged 69. A childhood friend of the founding members of the band, he became their designer-in-chief. His credits also include albums by Led Zeppelin, Peter Gabriel and Muse. In 2003, Thorgerson suffered a stroke, from which he recovered. He was later diagnosed with an undisclosed form of cancer, which he battled for several years. via thisdayinmusic.com

Money isn't everything. Meet a real charmer. I hear she's single.

A woman blew every last cent of her father’s inheritance money within just nine months, including $150,000 on drugs.

Brodie Bond,from Morwel, in Australia, successfully fought for a huge slice of her father’s will, $220,000 to be exact, after he left her nothing when he died. But rather than using that money wisely, the 28-year-old blew much of it in less than a year.

Oooops!!! The DOJ got something it wasn't expecting.

A website run by the US Justice Department and used to gather information about missing and abducted children is redirecting visitors to porn web pages with names such as “schoolgirl porn” and “ungrateful huge boobs Indian wife being a slut,” Gizmodo has discovered.

A redirect bug on the AmberAlert.gov allows anyone to create backlinks on the DOJ-run site—functionality apparently too good to pass up for some porn bots. The Amber Alert site is being manipulated by at least a half dozen porn pages (and an untold number of others) likely in an effort to boost their Google rankings.

Pinecraft-High-Res_10.jpg

Who knew? The Amish and Mennonites on Spring Break.

Each winter, for close to a century now, hundreds of Amish and Mennonite families have travelled from their homes in icy quarters of the U.S. and Canada to Pinecraft, a small, sunny neighborhood in Sarasota, Florida. Arriving on chartered buses specializing in the transportation of “Plain people” from areas such as Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and Holmes County, Ohio, they rent modest bungalows and stay for weeks, or sometimes months, at a time. It’s vacation. For many, it’s the one time of the year that they spend with people from communities other than their own.

What could have been a horrible ending turned out pretty well for this Genius Award Winner.

Every once in a while the youth of today surprise us. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

This 19-year-old college baseball player was heartbroken over his grandma’s inability to watch his game – so instead of allowing her to miss it, he and his team brought the game to her.

Due to the chemotherapy and radiation treatments that Marilyn Seavers had endured to fight her stage IV lung cancer, she was too weak to leave the house for her grandson’s game in March.

Zach, who was very close with his grandma before she died, was determined for her to see him play in a college uniform.

and adolescents may be more likely to develop depression and other
mental health conditions, compared with individuals whose gender
identity matches their assigned gender at birth.



They aren't developing depression and mental health conditions because they are "transgender." They are "transgender" because they have mental health problems and they are not being treated for those problems.

75 Google chrome started acting weird, so I put firefox back on after it had started acting weird. Firefox is working nicely. (I had sync turned on, and it synced up automagically which was unexpected.)

Then I figured out the problem with Chrome - ad block got disappeared somehow. Fixed that, and everything is back to normal.

So both Google and firefox know everything about me. I'm not skeered.

Then I noticed the only application I can find that works to read Nikon camera raw is adobe. So I'm locked in to adobe, and if I'm keeping adobe, might as well keep Microsoft Office. Damn.

Inanimate objects to not cause crime. They are just a tool.

And now, some power people want to ban those knives.

At the time, I thought our progressive betters thought that was the worst result ever and the study had to be buried. Then dug up, thoroughly discredited, and reburied.

Times change fast.

Still, they're in a beautiful northern locale, as the only trees are pine. The water is slack. Maybe it's a stream between two lakes.

I didn't answer in the thread 'cause I don't own one, but then I remembered a day or so later that my BiL does and he has one complaint: the takedown, instead of being a little lever on the side of the slide, is some fiddly bit where he has to eject the magazine, lock the slide, and reach in through the ejection port and blind manipulate some little switch.

Now, they might have fixed that in a newer model, or you might field strip it rarely enough that you don't care, but it bugged him in that 'if it weren't for that ONE THING' sort of way. You might want to ask them to show you how to field strip it on the range to make sure you're comfortable with the process.

141 The local legal pot stores are all advertising for huge 4/20 special discount pricing. Stuff for 50%, 60% off regular pricing.

In WA state, the grower license is different from the retail license. And retailers must buy only from state licensed growers, and everything is bar coded.


What is actually happening, for those who learned about concepts like supply and demand in school, is that there seems to be too much weed growing and the retail stores are having to drop the prices to move the inventory.

The sales are how the retailers are moving the stale stuff, like 6 months or more old, so they can carry the fresh stuff harvested like a month ago instead.

4/20 will probably be a boon for Uber drivers.

My late partner Karen had a way with feral cats. She'd live trap them, get them their shots and fixed. When we were negotiating my returning to her life, a very long story, I had to have the approval of the cats. She not only tamed them, they would do almost anything for her. They were all ages a couple quite elderly. She never allowed them out of the house though. I think it helps if there are multiple cats and that they understand that you are the alpha. She had nine when I moved in. Eight were ferals. At least three would've killed for her.

Depends on how you define feral. If by that you mean a fully adult cat that's managed to survive on its own, perhaps you're right.

199 185 How come Eric Holder didn't make the list. That guy is bad news since the Clinton Admin. Remember Marc Rich?
Posted by: Sweet Andy Licious at April 18, 2018 10:43 PM (Mo5Uy)

He gets his own special following if he continues to fake like a presidential candidate.

He was in New Hampshire yesterday or some such thing.

"So, candidate Holder, was it under 2,000 guns or over 2,000 guns you and your scheming traitors ran into Mexico when you were Attorney General for Barky?"

I learned that by asking a specific question cuts out a lot of wasted time.

200 @121 You cannot 'rescue' a feral cat. They must be socialized young to accept humans.

I'm willing to listen to arguments from the other side.
------------------

I've heard stories about apparent adult ferals "socializing" themselves. But the stories aren't exactly common. And you CANNOT force the cat to do so. It has to make the decision on its own.

By and large, it isn't going to happen.

I volunteer to give her a soothing knee massage. Among other things.

And with that utterly predictable comment I head off to bed. Not feeling any better but I have to go to work anyway. Such is life. Sleep well, my friends.

1996 I was doing an IT reengineering gig at Gannett/USAToday. I asked the management forum how they were preparing their business processes for the internet. To a person they stated the internet would have no significant impact on their business. As one put it "no one will take a laptop into the can to read the sports section".

209 It's a matter of time and patience to bring a feral cat in. They can be warm and loving kittehs. It was heartbreaking for me when I came home without Karen. They kept looking at me and looking out the windows. They gathered around me on the sofa as I sobbed.

Not a Cenobite though. Sounds the same, right? WELP, turns out it's a whole different thing. You don't make that mistake twice.

213 Here where I am (near Lancaster PA) the Amish hold like a country fair in a nearby farmer's field.

Amish come from hundreds of miles and they do all the country fair type stuff only with Amish things and some games and it is a HUGE turnout for about a week. They come in trailers and RV's (some of them) Some stay with locals (the horse ones) and the entire highway is clogged with them.

When the big one hits I know I'm looking for an Amish farm asap.

True, they want to spend like crazy but they also want to tax like crazy to pay for it!

217 Sorry to hear that qdp. Work is the only thing in my life that is going well. Had to do a very weird filing in water court today, we will see if they accept it tomorrow. Oh, the other thing good, I found what sounds like something dad might eat, he's picky, to put in the crockpot Sat. while "dad and I" purge and organize his files, I review his insurance policies and try to locate a missing title to a vehcle.
