We Need Christian Nationalism Because Religious Neutrality Has Failed


Interesting article about the role of Christianity in the founding of this country, one that I mostly agree with. Broadly speaking (and sometimes narrowly), if you show me a national problem we're dealing with, it can pretty easily be traced back to abandoning traditional Christian values. Note: this does not mean that everyone has to be a Christian, but I believe that a society based upon traditional Christian values (what we called American values up until the mid-20th century) works better than one that doesn't. “Wives obey your husbands, husbands love your wives as Christ loved the church” is a pretty good basis for a marriage no matter what religion both spouses follow. I'll let y'all argue about the “obey” hot potato in the comments, but remember it's a dual instruction. Whatever parameters you put on obey should be considered in light of the equally binding charge to the husband that he be willing to lay down his life for the wife. Somehow that part always gets left out by the feminists.

24 The essay I had trouble with was the "1519 project" essay mooted earlier.

I don't think Cortez / Cortes (spelling in the 1500s was, I suspect, as loose in Spain as it was in England) had any real notion that he was abolishing Aztec human sacrifices. I think Cortes was a sorry little figurehead who spent his whole time in New Spain being used.

source : Matthew Restall's When Montezuma Met Cortes.

The Spanish had some genocidal bastards (Alvarado) and Catholic bigots (de Landa) in their train. Cortes, to his credit, was neither. But he was also something of a b!tch. So when some of those genocidaires and bigots showed up - and there were plenty of those on the indigenous side as well - Cortes rolled with the punches.

25 Shingles can present itself it different ways. Mr. Jewells has had it 3 times and every time it was just a localized intense pain in his upper back.. with maybe a few tiny scabby looking things. Other people get the sores everywhere and the pain is awful.

The breakout is on her left front side. She's having the "shooting/stabbing" pains, and they're following the nerve back around her back.

We got her to the doc this afternoon. The rash had popped up a couple of days ago, and we thought it was just some sort of insect bite. But the shooting pains and very tender skin told a different story.

They've got her on acyclovir. Keep your fingers crossed.

30 reminder to all [well, over 5O] - get the shingles vaccine. If you've already had the old one [zostavax], still get the new one [shingrix, series of 2 shots].


All the usual caveats and exemptions apply for allergies and individual conditions and beliefs that vaccines are a plot of the space aliens and the Council on Foreign Relations.


But at least look into it. Mostly avoidable/preventable if you had chicken pox, haven't had shingles. Mostly.

48 hey, I *feel* for Cortes. He was a nobody in the Caribbean until Diego Velazquez (sp?) stuck him "in
charge" of a fleet full of Spanish pirates and sent the lot to Mexico. Mexico, at the time, I think we all agree, was a snakepit of Indian kingdoms all of whom REALLY wanted to massacre them some Aztecs, as the Aztecs had done to them.

Cortes survived all that, and even tried to learn the languages; and then was robbed of any opportunity to rule the place properly. In large part because of Velazquez, who was truly genocidal, back in Cuba.

Since Cortes was Catholic, I do hope his shade has done its time in Purgatory and is now in Heaven. [Not saying he should be a saint.]

No, but the funny thing is we were just talking about it a few weeks ago.

It's not contagious, but I had an outbreak a couple weeks ago. Now, with me, it's because of the immune suppressing crap I take for the RA. It always pops up on my forehead, and it did. Acyclovir will knock it back quickly.

But it's strange Miley got it about a week after I did.

IIRC, it's from the chicken pox virus. There is a vaccine they offer now, but I don't know much about its efficacy.

Yes, shingles is caused by herpes zoster, the chicken pox virus. When you're first exposed, you get the chicken pox.

Then, the virus goes dormant, but still alive in your nerves. When it decides to pop out again, that's shingles.

It's not contagious, except for anyone who hasn't had chicken pox. A person with active shingles can transmit the virus and cause chicken pox in someone who has never been exposed.

82 Hi Morons! I'm sorry to lay this great big stinking rotten egg here. I know I've given you EVERY reason to despise me, and have no right to post this lament here.

I don't have any IRL friends left. I HATE PEOPLE so fucking much. The world is ALL fucking LIES and IGNORANCE now, and I feel like there's something really really HORRIBLE going to happen really really soon. There is no truth, there is no reason or logic, and there is no trust. NOTHING remains.

I read scripture, but I have no faith, and I just don't have it in me to do what the Lord tells me to do. I can't bring myself to LOVE monsters and liars and ignorant people, like the Lord wants me to. I cannot love a MONSTER like Dylann Roof. I cannot love a LIAR like Maxine Waters. I cannot love an IGNORAMUS like Bernie Sanders. Can you? How? PLEASE do not tell me "Love the sinner, hate the sin." I will NOT believe you!! If I got to heaven, and Jesus introduced me to Dylann Roof, I'd head right for the elevators, and hit the DOWN button. No, actually, I'd pry the door open and swan-dive down the fucking shaft.

I'm pretty sure God means to destroy us very soon, just like He's destroyed so many other evil societies in the past, so my prayers feel insincere, and actually insulting to God.

You guys still have faith in Trump. I don't know how many of you were around here during W. ALL us morons had faith in W, and the whole thing turned to FUCKING DOGSHIT. It's futile to put trust and faith in people. I think we're all fucking doomed. We deserve to be swept away, but it still SUCKS.

85 >> Wonder if the shot is still a good idea?

It's recommended for seniors, what the age is now, I don't know. But when you get 29 and stay there for about 20 years or so, it's a good idea.

Shingles occurs more often in the over 29 crowd.

Seriously, it's over 50 I think when the probability starts rising.

Posted by: Commissar Hrothgar..........
If your insurance covers it.. OR.. if you can afford it... It IS a very good idea..
The pain and suffering of a bout of shingles is well worth the price. If you get it after the shot, it is mild and goes away in a few days.

92 82 Hi Morons! I'm sorry to lay this great big stinking rotten egg here. I know I've given you EVERY reason to despise me, and have no right to post this lament here.

I don't have any IRL friends left. I HATE PEOPLE so fucking much. The world is ALL fucking LIES and IGNORANCE now, and I feel like there's something really really HORRIBLE going to happen really really soon. There is no truth, there is no reason or logic, and there is no trust. NOTHING remains.

I read scripture, but I have no faith, and I just don't have it in me to do what the Lord tells me to do. I can't bring myself to LOVE monsters and liars and ignorant people, like the Lord wants me to. I cannot love a MONSTER like Dylann Roof. I cannot love a LIAR like Maxine Waters. I cannot love an IGNORAMUS like Bernie Sanders. Can you? How? PLEASE do not tell me "Love the sinner, hate the sin." I will NOT believe you!! If I got to heaven, and Jesus introduced me to Dylann Roof, I'd head right for the elevators, and hit the DOWN button. No, actually, I'd pry the door open and swan-dive down the fucking shaft.

I'm pretty sure God means to destroy us very soon, just like He's destroyed so many other evil societies in the past, so my prayers feel insincere, and actually insulting to God.

You guys still have faith in Trump. I don't know how many of you were around here during W. ALL us morons had faith in W, and the whole thing turned to FUCKING DOGSHIT. It's futile to put trust and faith in people. I think we're all fucking doomed. We deserve to be swept away, but it still SUCKS.

99 69 Yes, shingles is caused by herpes zoster, the chicken pox virus. When you're first exposed, you get the chicken pox.

Then, the virus goes dormant, but still alive in your nerves. When it decides to pop out again, that's shingles.


Mine decided to pop out 3 years ago in my eyeball. Very expensive to treat. Now I'm taking Valocyclovir in a suppressant dosage. Seems to be working.

While you're at it, depending on your location/lifestyle/work etc, review your vaccinations, and consider that thanks to Wonderful Vibrant Diversity [i.e., no border, nearly collapsed system of public health WRT incoming migrants, at least the illegal ones], vaccines long not recommended for adults are ..... back!


DPT [pertussis is the "P"], vs. DT, for example. There may be others.

Yes, shingles in the eye is a big problem. That's the trouble with me and the forehead outbreaks. If it gets in your eye, well, it's not too good.

Another complication is "postherpetic neuralgia", where the pain persists -- nerve damage, for months or years after the original outbreak.

And the worst of that is again, when it involves facial nerves, which is "tic douloureux" or trigeminal neuralgia.

That is *severe* facial pain, causing you to wince and contort your face. It's torture.

If things keep going the way they are? First exclusion from society. No jobs, no social connections, no public life for anyone that doesn't sign on with the left's agenda. And that agenda will get more and more extreme.


Then comes the official government condemnation, profess what the government tells you to or prison. "Bigotry", which will include Christianity and basically what was considered normal views on sexuality circa 1992 will be banned.


And at that point either we see a violent reaction "Revolutionary War 2.0" OR we get Big Brother. Who will likely imprison the common people for all the antics the left celebrates now anyway.

Besides, God isn't going to exact any big-time wrath any time soon. Think about it: Climate change will get us in the next 10 years, if racism doesn't kill us all sooner. And forget about Dylann Roof, for cryin' outs.

The AoSHQ is kind of my trolling "turf" but you can have at it here for a few posts. (Just this once!) Sports is the latest thing we're tarnishing beyond recognition.

But the only reason it's a favorite is the discount coupon thing. When they have what we want, it knocks enough off to make the price equal to house brand/big store, but quality is better. Just occasionally drop by, location is convenient, but it's become a beer source.

160 18-1, smallpox might not actually have killed as many Mesoamericans as was claimed. Directly.

It did disfigure the survivors, and it certainly demoralised the rest of them. Demoralisation means suicides and fewer children being born.

The biggest direct killer of Mesoamericans was the cocolitzi. I'd heard this one was paratyphoid.

so they didn't intend to genocide the natives.

Oh I meant specifically how a Spaniard with smallpox ended up in Mexico.

My memory is that Cortés went to Mexico against the wishes of the Spanish governor of Cuba. The governor sent an army after Cortés into Mexico.

Cortés persuaded this army that there was more glory and riches to be had in Mexico then there were in dragging him back to Cuba and...ended up with the army he needed due to the governor's opposition.

One of the soldiers sent to stop him though had come down with smallpox though...and it was this vector that led to Cortés spreading the disease (again unknowingly).

I'm not an expert in the historical spread of diseases, but forms of typhoid were definitely a big killer in North America. It's believed that typhoid nearly took down Massasoit (he of the First Thanksgiving and all that), except the Pilgrims recognized the symptoms and were able to treat them.

I was asked today if any diseases had gone the other way, from America to Europe. I'd heard before that syphilis might have, but I really don't know for sure.

179 The Spanish might have inadvertently spread smallpox in Mesoamerica. But my understanding is that "interacting" with the native women and then returning back to Spain is what introduced syphilis to Europe.

So it's not as if the Spaniards didn't get smacked right back in the bio-warfare department.

There seems to be signs of syphilis Europe before 1492, but a MUCH more virulent version spread with the Spanish armies in the 1500s.

First prof to make them think, first one not to preach, first one who actually had background/experience in his subject, first one to insist/help them write correctly. A lot of seniors among these cases. Major state university.

Oh, I see what you mean. That's my recollection of events as well.

It's also my understanding (and I find this funny in a dark sort of way) that of the new army that joined up with Cortes, most of them died soon after. When they all marched back to Tenochtitlan, that was just before the Aztecs rose up and drove them out, and they had to swim across the lake to get away. The ones who'd been with Cortes from the beginning knew to travel light, but the newcomers plundered all they could first and when it came time to swim,....well.

My amusing fact of the day - the Iroquois introduced the Indian of Indian reservations. As successful warmongers they often had to decide what to do with defeated tribes and often moved those tribes to areas convenient for them. Of course in some cases they just plain exterminated their neighbors well.

Of course adult human sacrifice is NOWHERE near the worst thing the Aztecs did.

219 Hello ONT my old friend...

I was in Vernon, NJ today, where I learned of the legend of Action Park.

An enclosed water slide with a complete loop where customers ended up with bloody noses. A wheeled ride with no brakes that shot down a concrete-and-fiberglass track. A freshwater pool with giant waves that required lifeguards to rescue over two dozen people a day. New Jersey's Action Park, which quickly became known as "Accident Park", had it all. It was arguably America's most dangerous water park...

One extreme example was the park's Alpine Slide, which has been described by an old Action Park regular as, "essentially a giant track to rip people's skin off that was disguised as a kid's ride."...

One of the park's most notable attractions was the Tidal Wave Pool, one of the first to open in the United States, which quickly became one of the most dangerous rides at the park. Nicknamed, "The Grave Pool," it was filled with fresh water, not sea water, which made patrons less buoyant and left strong swimmers and non-swimmers alike literally in over their heads as waves that could reach 40 inches at high blast. The 12 lifeguards on duty rescued, on average, 30 people a day on high-traffic weekends.


As part of the anything goes atmosphere no one cared about the drinking age. Doctors said nearly everyone they treated for injuries was inebriated, no matter what age. A guy got electrocuted on a kayak ride because there was a live wire in the water.

And modern left educators will tell you that never happened, that it is all a myth, irrespective of all the evidence we have of it.


Of course adult human sacrifice is NOWHERE near the worst thing the Aztecs did.

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

The Romans have a lot to do with the disappearance of human sacrifice in the Mediterranean. They occasionally engaged in a little of it themselves, but by and large they didn't like it and avoided it. And then they enforced that on everyone else in the region. It's worth noting that human sacrifice was one of the reasons why "Carthage delenda est!"

It cannot be that the white-eye was simply the strongest tribe, being far ahead of the stone age, and thus prevailed - as the Iroquois and Huron and Apache and other competent aggressive tribes had dominated before the white-eye.


Or that the enslavement, slaughters, even genocides prior to the 17th century are beyond counting or knowing, by definition.

They had gone from Iceland to Greenland. Iceland itself does not support a huge population and Greenland, eventually, failed as a Norse colony.

243 If things keep going the way they are? First exclusion from society. No jobs, no social connections, no public life for anyone that doesn't sign on with the left's agenda. And that agenda will get more and more extreme.

You're already seeing loyalty oaths in academia - if you want to be hired or promoted, you have to sign a written commitment to "diversity". if you think that your university should simply hire the best people available, no academic career for you.

Columbia's English Literature department got some flak for not placing a single Ph.D. graduate in a tenure-track position, yet still admitting 18 new Ph.D. students into the program.

A Columbia professor explained that they couldn't cut back on the number of students admitted,,because that would hurt the department's "diversity" goals.

Translation: Columbia's "diversity" admits are terrible, so if Columbia only admitted "diversity" candidates, it would destroy what was left of the English Department's reputation.

They wouldn't want anyone to hear the truth of it, because the story of Hernan Cortez is not a story they would like. He was not a great man, or even a good one. He was a flawed man, like most of us... but when the currents of history put him on a collision course with pure evil, he didn't back down. The only way out was through, and he held the course in spite of the danger.

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

Probably a mix of a few things.

IIRC, the Vikings in the New World aren't believed to have interacted all that much with the locals (aside from exchanging arrows on occasion). So there was less opportunity for diseases to jump ethnicities. The colder climate probably helped. And the population confronting the Vikings was completely different from what the Spanish faced. The Spanish were working their way through heavily urbanized areas, with lots of people per square mile. The Vikings were living in a much more sparsely settled area, where infecting one local didn't necessarily mean that a thousand others would be exposed by the end of the day.

Posted by: junior at August 23, 2019 11:06 PM (Fp6vo)

248 In all seriousness, the Vikings were always a relatively small group of persons, on the fringes of society, and the ones that went to American were hardly in contact with the mainstream of Euroasian society. The Conquistadores and such were often scraped out of the teeming cities on the Mediterranean coast, port cities which would have been exposed to every disease on the Eurasion continent.

Don't really have a good answer to that. My immediate guess would be sheer luck--either the Vikings didn't have any carriers with them, or the two sides weren't in contact long enough for disease to spread, or both.

Also, it's Canada. Maybe it was too cold.

255 Iceland itself does not support a huge population

Iceland's population is so small that it couldn't maintain an endemic population of people with measles.

So historically, Iceland has been ravaged by periodic measles epidemics caused by an infected person off a ship, everyone gets immunity, and then there are no measles cases until enough non-immune people are born in Iceland to support a new epidemic.

256 NaCly, I'm reading a small book [The Los Alamos Lectures], an annotated/expanded version of the introductory lectures given to newly arriving scientists at Los Alamos starting in 1943. The author [physicist Robert Serber, who gave the actual lectures] does a good job of discussing things conceptually, and doesn't throw in *that* much math - which is good, because the math is way beyond the current me - so I'm skipping most of the math.


But actually picking up some interesting stuff, like fission cross-sections, and little tidbits he tosses into the annotation, like who really came up with the implosion idea for a plutonium-based bomb [not who is sometimes credited], and brief commentary on personalities [Oppenheimer, Teller, Groves].

I think that's a different kind of backing down. Cortes intended to establish Spanish dominion over Mexico, so whacking another Indian city along the way cost him nothing personally.

I don't know if I'd go as far as you in assessing Cortes. He was not a nice man, but he was a good leader, and from what I've read, I'd much rather have dealt with him than say, Pizarro and a few others.

(don't remember which bunch it was that did this particular one, doesn't really matter) They believed that their gods talked to them when they hallucinated, so first they would drink some Jungle Juice they made up, and then - and this is the good part - they would take a large spine off a cactus, with barbs on it, and they would push it all the way through their own penis, and then they would work it back and forth til the blood really flowed, til the pain gave them really intense hallucinations. That's what really got them off.

Posted by: Charles the Simple at August 23, 2019 10:54 PM (w7U7L)

***********

Hi Charles (and Maegan). I'm a knitting designer. Ravelry isn't a blog, it's an entire website which hosts not only fora, but has massive database of yarns, yarn shops, retailers, and patterns (including mine, search Gingy and you'll find me there). I have opened shops on Loveknitting and Patternvine, to provide another option for those Ravelry-averse, but those are marketplace-only.

She might want to google Our Unraveled. It was a site made in the wake of Ravelry's anti-Trump announcement. I signed up but I haven't used it. I know of another but the name escapes me at the moment.

If she wants to email me to get my shop links, I can be found at gingy knits at that gee mail place- (you can figure that out, right?).

Some of us, a lot of us, just wanna knit. And the conservatives are the ones who a) don't bitch but merely leave; and b) actually spend money. My pattern shop on LoveKnitting made more money last week than my Ravelry shop in the entire month.

The Norse settlement in Newfoundland (and excursions further inland, to Greenland and points south) lasted only ten years and they had only limited engagement with the local peoples. Further, the Beothuk people were on the island of Newfoundland exclusively - which is 180 km from the mainland. It's a little far to go in a kayak to carry disease.

I wonder how many historical tragedies (or even great moments) have passed out of memory because there was no photographs at the time to document it. It is a sad truth that history is written by the victors (this is true to an extent even with photographic evidence.)

Orson Scott Card has one of his time traveling characters do this in the novel Pastwatch. The character is descended from the Mesoamerican natives, and needs to masquerade as a holy figure to get the pre-Colombus Mesoamericans to follow a particular plan. And the novel makes it pretty clear that part of the "make myself look like a holy figure" involves use of a barb as described above.

The character also notes that his ancestors were quite obviously nuts.

People really do believe that the whole thing was made up or didn't happen.

I remember there was a holocaust denier who died a while back - can't remember who he was; my vague recollection is that the only reason why the news noted his passing had something to do with how he died. And one of the articles about him that I glanced through mentioned that once while visiting a former Nazi concentration camp, he got into an argument with another visitor about whether the Holocaust really happened.

So, yeah, people really are that hard-headed.

Omar engaged in explicit Holocaust denialism last Holocaust remembrance Day, by sending out a tweet referring to the "17 million" victims of the Holocaust.

That figure is meant to represent all civilian deaths in Eastern Europe in WWII - the point is to claim that there were a lot of civilian deaths in WWII, and to deny that Jews were specifically targeted for extermination.

One of the last really great U.S. televisions -- "works in a drawer". "Quasar. By Motorola."

Right around that time, Panasonic made their classic business move. Japanese products still had the reputation of being junk, so they went to RCA, et al and said "Look, our TVs are good, and cheap, too. We'll sell them to you for less than you can make them for yourself and you can just put an RCA label on them." The bean counters went for it.

Then Panasonic went to Sears, et al, and said "We'll sell you the same TVs we're selling to RCA for less than they charge you, and you can put a Kenmore label on them."

Not long after that, there weren't any non-Japanese TVs.

Bill Gates later ran the same game on IBM with MS-DOS.

But, the Nazis were also killing all the Romani, the Gypsies. They were in the camps as well.

Yet we have no specific word for when THEY were being exterminated.

And no one has ever even proposed a Gypsy homeland.

Bought this 42" Samsung flatscreen in 2007.

It's still a fantastic image, sharp as hell, fully saturated color palate.

I've seen the 4k displays, playing their ENHANCED 4k "demo" Blu-Ray disks. Yeah, awesome.

How much broadcast, cable cast, sat cast, etc. cast out there, is IN 4k format, much less the new hawt 8k freshness?

I'll likely upgrade in a year or two. Buy 4k, and know that the snobs will consider it already obsolete.

But it's a fool's errand to spend many times more on a still scarce format that won't be common until your new TV purchase is 'bout ready for the trash bin.

Buy ONLY after the new format is in Common Distribution. Sooner, and you're simply spending vanity bucks.

385 The Romans have a lot to do with the disappearance of human sacrifice in the Mediterranean.

They announced the last orders they would take and after that, no more will be built. Development has ceased for some time.

The Itanic forecasts were some of the worst -- not as bad as federal govt. budget estimates, but pretty bad.

Itanium was something else, and gave Chipzilla some comeupance. The Itanic was going to be the killer 64-bit chip, the one that would replace the x86 architecture. It was totally different.

I remember at the time, late 90s, I was all hepped up for the new Intel 64-bit instruction set, and looked at it. I MEGLO'd. "Huh, this is totally different". And ridiculously complicated.

And then AMD came out with 64-bit extensions to the x86 instruction set, known as AMD64, x64 and x86_64.

And that was the one that became the standard 64-bit system. Intel had to copy it, with a standard joke being Intel's version was the "iAMD64", which was a real slap to Intel.

Intel realized it was dead way before now, but HP had invested so much it it, and that is what kept Intel making it for so many years.

The control system for the T-stat is 24VAC, driven off a control transformer. It's not dangerous for electric shock, but you can short them out and blow the little fuses for the thing, which means opening up the unit.

Some simple heating systems using "mV" thermostats, driven off a "thermopile" (enough thermocouples to generate enough voltage and current) driven by the pilot light.

450 The arrest %s are from DOJ latest data release, I think.


There's an invisible [because suppressed/ignored] crime wave occurring across the country involving illegal aliens, many of them repeat offenders [normal pattern with criminals], turbo-charged by "sanctuary" lawlessness. This is apart from the crime wave of DUIs including those resulting in mayhem/homicide, and of course the enormous ID theft involved in illegal employment.


ONT so maybe it's safe to not self-censor. While the Dems are unspeakably and despicably complicit, and the GOP [95%] is *little better* [oh, yes], the administration is largely a failure on this [and is doing literally nothing, politically, to even prepare the ground to do anything about it].


And the country doesn't give a f**k - it doesn't affect them, directly, negatively, immediately, so it's not happening [and the collapse of anything resembling a press keeps everyone nicely uninformed about what's going on].


And we won't raise the topic of the ongoing constitutional trainwreck as the DOJ/WH haplessly further the grotesque transformation into a court-run, "sanctuary"-enabled mess through their inaction and mindless submission to anything barfed up by even a single lawless "judge".

451 Well, I am off to bed. Started the poor wretched Panhard up today, and after much rowing with the shift lever, backed it out of the driveway, and drove it over by the shop. Fired up the shop vac, and began vacuuming up all the broken glass from the back window (presumably a rock strike from the lawnmower). The shop vac cacked out. Done like dinner, it is.

So I abandoned the window glass cleanup, and turned to the sagging engine mounts. It had a pair of thick rubber biscuits mounted such that all the load on them was a shear load. Not real bright, guys. I removed the old biscuits, and began fabricating angle brackets so that I could use a pair of Studebaker rubber biscuits, set vertically, so loaded in compression, not shear. One side is now done, and the engine remains supported by a jack. And it's all bolt-in, so it could be put back to original, should anyone care to do so. This is an old rally car, so it came to me modified in some respects.

Everyone knows there is a breakdown of basic law and order, yet the GOP will NOT make it an issue.

It would sweep them into HUGE gains in both the House and Senate, and ensure Trump's reelection.

Yet, they don't talk about the BASIC problems.

The only reason I can think of, is they actually LIKE the status quo, not understanding what it is doing to our society.

459 Don Q, agree. I have no magic way of knowing exactly why they do/don't do what they do/don't do, but we can guess at a variety of situations.


But Trump's failure to even try to politicize this [i.e. bring heat on the GOP and vulnerable Dems], or to take dramatic action [all within his existing power] to save lives - that's just as important and just as inscrutable [to me].


And that the electorate, taken as a whole, seems blase about it just confirms certain evolving perceptions about the country.

Get the t-state fixed but meanwhile get a space heater - they're convenient and often a good option anyway. A few miles off the coast further south, but we rarely use the heat now, just a space heater or two, plus sweats and good warmth boots for the "cold" [ha] nights in "winter".

Okay, Morticia, I found the installation instructions for those 4000 series T-stats. It looks like a simple, non-heat pump system.

Turning the heat on is probably as simple as jumping the R(red) to the W(white) terminal.

What type of furnace is it? Oil, gas?

On those, the blower is usually turned on by the system itself when the plenum comes up to temperature. Otherwise, you'll connect the G (green) fan lead to R as well.

Only do this if you're comfortable with messing with it.

By jumping, or "hot-wiring" it, the heat will run continuously until you break the connection. Run it until it gets warm enough, the break it. Until you get the T-stat replaced.

And you can pick up one at any big box Lowes/Home Depot, etc store.

480 Not to gross you guys out, but a two weeks ago I thought - from visual evidence when I turned to flush the terlit - that I had worms. A visit to the doctor, tests, and finally identifying the critter in the terlit (Brachyiulus pusillus, which are everywhere around these parts this time of year) indicated in short order that I did not. So all's well worm-wise, thank goodness.

I'm just really surprised at the effect it had on me. I was absolutely freaked and creeped out, and still haven't recovered! Depressed would probably describe my current symptoms, and that surprises me too, since I've been through an ample ration of reverses in my life and have always stayed up-beat. Apparently the ol' emotional reserves, like pretty much everything else, just ain't what they used to be.
Good to know, I suppose. Guess I'd better take it into account in the future.

Jordan Peterson Voice Generation Brings Joy to Millions, But Then Goes Silent

I don't blame Jordan Peterson for being upset that this site which claims it can render text into Jordan Peterson's voice has him saying all sorts of kooky things.

In April of this year, a company called Coding Elite exposed an artificial intelligence (AI) program that to a substantial sample of my voice, which is easily accessible on the YouTube lectures and podcasts that I have posted over the last years. In consequence, they were able to duplicate my manner of speaking with exceptional precision, starting out by producing versions of me rapping Eminem songs such as Lose Yourself (which has now garnered 250,000 views) and Rap God (which has only garnered 17,000) as well as Rock Lobster (1400 views). They have done something similar with Bernie Sanders (singing Dancing Queen), Donald Trump (Sweet Dreams) and Ben Shapiro, who also delivered Rap God. The company has a model, the address of which you can find on their YouTube channel, which allows the use to make Trump, Obama, Clinton or Sanders say anything whatsoever.

I happen to think Rap God is an amazing piece of work, and when I first encountered my verbal avatar belting out the lyrics I thought that it was cool, in a teenage tech-geek sort of way. And I suppose it was. This caused quite a stir on the net in April, with media companies such as Forbes and Motherboard (a division of Vice) noting that the machine learning technology only required six hours of original audio (that is, actually generated by me) to produce its credible fakes, matching rhythm, stress, sound and prose intonation.

This week, however, a company called notjordanpeterson.com put an AI engine online that allows anyone to type anything and have it reproduced in my voice. It’s hard to get access to or use the site, at the moment, presumably because it is currently attracting more traffic than its servers can handle. [NOTE: As of August 23, this website posted the following announcement: In light of Dr. Peterson’s response to the technology demonstrated by this site, which you can read here, and out of respect for Dr. Peterson, the functionality of the site will be disabled for the time being.]

But it was pretty funny while it lasted.

The original "Rap God," the Jordan Peterson version, is here. Content warning for offensive rap lyrics.

Below, some more Not Jordan Peterson audio clips. I like the one about the academic research into whether traps are gay.

Content warning for all of these; the go-to joke is to make "Jordan Peterson" say something uncharacteristically profane.






Whether you think this is funny or not -- I think it's funny as long as it's branded as a fake, and restricts itself to silliness rather than defamation -- you should definitely know that this technology is now widely available, and that any audio you hear may be completely fake but nearly impossible to discern as fake.

And of course you can't trust video either -- it's now within anyone's ability to create "Deep Fake" video of anyone on earth.

This video shows how easy it is to morph Bill Hader into Tom Cruise, whenever Hader slips into his Tom Cruise impression.

There are genetic markers that tell you where the cancer started, and thus give the doctors clues as to the most effective treatment. Untreated, that cancer will spread and wind up everywhere in the body...

unless it kills you first!

86 Some Moron's post sent me on a quest for songs from Joni Mitchell's Miles of Aisle with the L.A. Express. -one side only-
and I found this:

In 2010, Mitchell told a reporter at the Los Angeles Times that she has a "weird, incurable disease that seems like it's from outer space."

She said the condition is the reason why she often hides from the public eye. Mitchell described seeing "fibers in a variety of colors protrude out of my skin like mushrooms after a rainstorm: they cannot be forensically identified as animal, vegetable or mineral." -

She also denies being what one author described as "one of the world's great smokers" having anything to do with her deteriorating vocal abilities or health.

Neither am I a doc, but that's how I understand it too.

It's pretty much a given of the BAD KILLS YOU DEAD kind of cancer that the shit starts spreading all over your body. The "just generally sucks" kind of cancer stays in one nice tumor where it can be cut out, irradiated, injected, or whatever.

167 ASPEN, Colo. (KKTV) - A bear was euthanized in Colorado after reportedly attacking a restaurant manager.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is reporting the attack happened in Aspen on Sunday. Officers located the bear within town limits on Monday. A DNA test confirmed it was the same animal that bit the manager.

-
This burned me up when I was a prosecutor. The Department of Wildlife took their cases so damn seriously and had all the resources they needed while everybody else had to wait. This appears to have been a fairly serious incident, still, it happened Sunday and no later than Friday they had the DNA results back. We had to wait months to get DNA results back on mere murders and rapes. (I had to dismiss one case because the analysis of suspected controlled substance didn't come back before speedy trial ran.) The DOW has its own lab and far fewer cases than we mere mortals.

P.S. We used to call DOW officers "Duck Dicks".

Trump Tweets Obvious Joke; Media Is Either Stupid Enough, or Dishonest Enough, to Pretend It's Serious

Here's Trump:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

21m

The Dow is down 573 points perhaps on the news that Representative
Seth Moulton, whoever that may be, has dropped out of the 2020
Presidential Race!

"Whoever that may be." A clear signal that this person is a non-entity and therefore, get this, unlikely to affect the stock market at all.

So of course the Fake News Sites are pretending it's real:

MSNBCRealNews.gif

The old take was, are they stupid or just pretending?

But I think it's both. People do not say stupid things without a reason. If someone says something stupid, given how egotistical people are (especially the subhumans in the media), they're saying that stupid thing because they think it makes them look smart.

People do not keep saying stupid things every day if they realize it makes them appear stupid.

Only genuinely stupid people do that.

Agreed. the press took that comment completely out of context, re-positioned it, and ran with the lie.

130 The Dow Jones Industrial Average. Not completely reflective of the economy as a whole, but a snapshot.

It's been in a "trading range" since the low of last December 21. That's the low for a couple of years. It has hit a little over 27000 this summer, and now selling off, dropping down.
Within 6 weeks, it will get up to nearly 27,000 again.

Over the last four years, it has gained over 11,000 points at the high on June 12 (27,300).

It is not going down out of the bottom of the trading range (maybe 23,000) and not going above 27,500 unless something profound happens either way.

Watching it on a daily basis is kind of dumb. You have to watch 3-6 week trends, and usually longer.

245 Going on Youtube and watching a Bloomberg video on China's retaliation options, I was struck by how fucking stupid major academic experts are. I could probably for George Magnus' job for him. He stressed that China has pretty much exhausted tariff options and listed punishments: harassment of Western companies, unreliable entity lists, agriculture, etc. This completely misses sight of the fact that these options mainly punish Western companies dumb enough to cuck to China. And that was A MONTH AGO.

Most of the moron media is screaming about oncoming recession, but they've been doing that for years. Trump has China in a noose, and the sheer size of these tariffs threaten to slow American growth, and to explode the Chinese economy. Smart companies will reap a windfall from the pain of multinationals. I love it.

In other words, the MSM isn't making voters pull the lever; they may just keep people away in disgust.

300 RBG's ending is a lesson in spite and greed.

She could have happily retired during Obama's 2 terms and been "safely" replaced. But no, she wanted the historical historicalness of being appointed by one President Clinton and replaced by another-his historical wife. Probably replaced by Loretta Lynch - more historicalness.

And then Trump went and f'ked that all right up.

Joe Biden's Brain Seems to Have Small Seizure As He Repeats Words Out of Context

What was that about his surgeries for his two brain aneurysms -- that the fear was the speech functions of his brain might be impacted?

Biden joked about that.

But... is it a joking matter?



Slow Joe wasn't done with the age-related verbal decline yet, either.



Boy, I guess this proves that Joe Biden must really love America. Because he's not just aging, he's super-aging!

Old Joe just added a new They Gonna Put Y'All Back in Chains type gaffe an hour ago, going to a dark place:

@mikememoli

Biden, as he often does, talking about how his political heroes - RFK, MLK - were assassinated when he was in college. Then posits, rather starkly: imagine what would have happened if Barack Obama was assassinated

I get the feeling if Democrats don't make this a coronation for him, he'll drop out. He just doesn't have it in him.

He's basically Bod Dole without the war record, and I think Democrats are starting to notice. Once the electability argument goes out the window, Biden has nothing.

Biden has been crazy for years and years. It's hilarious they are allowing him to be out again after his gaffes the other week. Hillary only did certain speeches and then got hooked up to the machines. What about Biden? "More paste, Joe?"

This is my take. Gabbard was a non-starter in any case, much like Giglibrand, Amy "Eats with Comb" Klobuchar, that nutjob Steyer, Inslee (who?), etc.

Harris was holed (?) below the water line by Gabbard, and Warren reminds me - and I suspect, a lot of other people - for all the world of Marcy Darcy from Married with Children. I just don't see a lot of enthusiasm either for the scolding faux Indian librarian with a plan for everything up to taking a dump.

Sanders isn't even a Democrat, and he's something of a laughing stock outside of Democrat strongholds. Who's left? The two homosexuals? Um ... no. So who, then?

179 Gore in 2000 was coasting on his 1988 base of somewhat moderate Democrats and environmentalists. He was and is, like Hillary, unlikeable, and the moderate Democrats he had in 1988 are Trump's base now.

I don't think Gore gets the 2000 coal states back. He failed to get TN in 2000 and he will fail to get PA in 2020.

Plus, Gore's got to live down his blasting of chakras. Anyone want to bet whether or not he's gotten handies for real in some Epstein joint? I'm betting that he has, and that if he runs, we'll find out about it.

Normally, I'd agree. But imagine a circumstance where that is NOT the case. It's not hard to do.

For example:

Biden is still the frontrunner, but is faltering, having lost a couple of primaries, whereas Warren is closing on him, but still well behind, but she's won some the primaries - by narrow margins. Sanders has won some primaries, but he is anathema to the DNC, Harris hasn't won any primaries, and is in the "linger on" mode, Buttplug is still flouncing around and raising a lot of interior decorator money, but still well back in the pack, etc.

Moreover, in the meantime, the various candidates have gotten quite nasty with each other, spending a lot of time airing each other's dirty laundry and engendering deep enmity between them.

It's not that the Dems don't want a stage-managed coronation, it's that they comprise a number of constituencies that cannot agree on whom to crown, and none of those constituencies is given to compromise.

I blame Big Popcorn.

264 The big difference between Biden's gaffes and Trump's goofy statements is that Biden's demonstrate at best senility, and Trumps a loose tongue. Trump just fires off whatever comes to mind, Biden says genuinely disturbing, insane, or idiotic things.

265 > And again I say, Thank you, Obama. He killed six harvests of Democrat candidates and now they've got nothing but Red Guards and gerontocracy.

They truly have their nuts caught in a vise.

1) Nominate Plugs (or, to a lesser degree, Sanders or Warren), lose the "woke" voters.
2) Nominate ButtJizz or Harris, lose the black voters.
3) Nominate any of the other interchangeable commie gun-grabbing free-abortions-for-illegal-aliens fans, lose the small-but-significant old white Democrat voter.

I've mentioned my older relative before. Hates illegal aliens. Hates gun control. Hates abortion. Hates high taxes. Still votes D because his daddy and granddaddy did. He hates Trump, too, and will never vote for him, but he also will not vote for an admitted commie gun-grabber. He'll stay home.

I find Bernie's speaking manner very off-putting, namely, his playing the vertical piano throughout any speech.

You'd think his handlers would tell him to knock it off. But then you'd think Warren's handlers would tell her to calm down, speech in resonant, measured tones, and stop jerking her head around like pigeon.

268 Don't dismiss Warren. Is there anybody who voted for Clinton who wouldn't vote for Warren? I see her a version of Clinton that people don't know well enough to hate yet. Hillary had 24 years of showing on a national stage what a snake she was, and still very nearly won. There is evidence to suggest she took the EV for granted and strategized for the popular vote so her endzone dance wouldn't be interrupted. Take some of the those self-imposed obstacles away and maybe she wins.

Not fast enough to save her, though - for 2020 Democrats believe the only reason we have cops is to put Brown People in prison. She may be a threat in 2024.

357 could be he was HAVING a small seizure (mini-seizures is a term I heard) .. or it could (more likely) just be revealing he HAD (mini?) seizures in the past, or maybe a little more than mini.


My Mom had a small stroke at some point ... she'd try to use her walker and would turn it backwards. She'd hit the bars, look at it .. just didn't make sense what was wrong. The stroke was like a end of pinky size area affected, spatial section or something.


So Biden maybe was actively having the mini-stroke, or it is just a permanent condition (more likely imo, knowing nothing, not even hearing him since I'm on the porch, not at the main computer) ... beautiful weather right now. Or as Joe might say ... um, OK, I won't joke about that ... he will be gone soon enough.

Rasmussen: Majority of Likely Voters Don't Trust Political News, Also Say the Media Is Primarily Engaged in Political Operations to Block Trump's/the GOP's Agenda

Welcome to the party, pals!

One of the most wonderful trends in the past five years is hearing not-very-political normies just say things like, "The media, can't trust a thing they say."

They've earned their complete contempt.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 32% of Likely U.S. Voters trust the political news they are getting. Most (54%) do not. Fourteen percent (14%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

51% say that the media is primarily interested in blocking Trump's agenda, while only 36% say the media is primarily interested in straight news reporting.

4% of lunatics, some of whom troll this site, say that the media is trying to help pass Trump's agenda.

See this tweet for an embedded screen cap of the poll findings.

Here's that screencap, as a direct link.

I'd buy that. I suspect it's a little high but possibly not by much. Only about 20%-30% of the vote is ever up for grabs. 35% of people will vote for the Dem no matter what. Those same people are probably the ones who trust the political news - it's affirming what they're already doing.

You're reading it wrong.

The question was: "Do you trust the political news that you're getting?"

If you get it from a conservative place, the answer is yes, and more men probably do that. I would answer "yes," because I don't have cable or take "mainstream" outlets seriously.

63 "The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 32% of Likely U.S. Voters trust the political news they are getting. Most (54%) do not. Fourteen percent (14%) are not sure."

64 Whatever happens with Trump, my opinion is he broke the media for good.

They just don't have the power they once did.

They used to be able to take a "head shot" and basically destroy any Republican they decided needed to go. They could collectively freak out, our side would offer the offender their head, and they'd find the next target.

The enemy has been the media more than elected Democrats.

72 I'm very happy the public knows the news is biased.


My concern now is the public doesn't know how much Google and Facebook are manipulating them. Americans in general have been historically fair. After 9/11, books on Islam and Wahhabism were flying off the shelves.
People confronted this new information by learning about it.
Google is deeply ingrained into people's learning process, and they are actively manipulating search results by not indexing any news source to the right of NBC.

I know this is the case because Google searches I've done trying to find old stories about things I've read about here used to return good sources, but now return Vox and Buzzfeed and NBC and other shit-tier sources.
So now when a fair-minded person goes out and tries to learn about politics, they're missing out on any information to the right of Hillary Clinton.

Hot tip to those people: Sometimes you DO blame the messenger.

Normally a product that failed its consumers as badly as the NY Times and MSNBC did would be buried under scandals and class-action lawsuits. All those readers/viewers wound up to see Hillary elected, the entire Trump family indicted, charges of collusion and conspiracy revealed -- and then BUST. Don't they have a #TwoWeeks meme? Jeez.

I think it actually higher than that, at least in terms of "totally on board with the media's position."

But even most of them acknowledge that the media is opposed to the president - they are just down with the cause. That *anyone* could view any news channel for more than about 5 minutes and think "these guys are trying to push Trump's agenda" is actually mad. 4% are actual crazies.

104 My concern now is the public doesn't know how much Google and Facebook are manipulating them. Americans in general have been historically fair. After 9/11, books on Islam and Wahhabism were flying off the shelves.
People confronted this new information by learning about it.
Google is deeply ingrained into people's learning process, and they are actively manipulating search results by not indexing any news source to the right of NBC.

I know this is the case because Google searches I've done trying to find old stories about things I've read about here used to return good sources, but now return Vox and Buzzfeed and NBC and other shit-tier sources.
So now when a fair-minded person goes out and tries to learn about politics, they're missing out on any information to the right of Hillary Clinton.

I really think the "old guard" has already been largely defeated. Nobody gives a shit what the national news anchors think about a story.

It's the "new guard" that needs to be gone after. You can absolutely see HEAVY bias when you try to do a Google search on something. Which is even creepier.

A news personality or writer is basically a paid actor. How you get information on your own is almost like a Stalinist technique for manipulation.

"There is zero evidence of any seated grand jury" WRT absolutely ANY of the numerous crimes committed by the FBI DOJ CIA NSA etc...

Says Durhams report is thus far nothing more than a "department review"

So, in light of all of the absolutely nothing that has been happening, combined with what looks to me like an anemic DOJ, I'm no longer hopeful the government will actually prosecute itself.

Even typing that makes me feel ever so silly to think anything was really going to be done.

245 I kinda think Sanders is gonna surge.

Yeah but it won't last. He will move up in the polls a bit, but in the end old white guy with lousy hair and stupid policies loses out. I thought for a long time he'd be the nominee because he was able to beat Hillary last time, but... he only did so because he was the radical left voice, the guy who appealed most to the Democrat base as it is today.

Now he's one voice among like 15 and he's the least charismatic one.

Yeah that happened when I was in Jr High and from that time on I always was skeptical of big breaking stories and special stunt stories from the press. An endless succession of scare health stories that contradicted each other turned that skepticism into downright distrust.

But you know what drove the final nail into the coffin of my media trust? Rush Limbaugh's "gravitas" montage about Dick Cheney. Up until then I saw these screwups as a mistake, as something that slipped through or was a genuine accident. That montage proved it was deliberate.

I agree. In extremis the DNC will find a way to kneecap him again, just like last time.

Why? Because he's unelectable, and worse, he's off the Democrat reservation. In fact, he was never on it, so they have zero control over him. He doesn't even call himself a Democrat; he just the cuckoo's egg in the Democrat nest. (SWIDT?)

In this respect, Sanders is to the Democrats much like Trump was (and is) to the GOPe.

THAT VIDEO needs to be Trump-eted, broadcast, echoed, transcripted and beat into the public's awareness at Super Bowl Hype Levels.

Can't open the Anti-Trust Gambit, without first preparing the battlespace. And that battlespace is Public Opinion, across society, and not just we few focused types who haunt these hallowed, Hordely halls.

Pick a date, say, Sept. 15th (any, really), but get the entire Right O'Sphere to beat that drum, in unison and at full volume.

Make it an Un-Ignorable Media Event, all day, all night and across the full digital spectrum.

Go for a Three Day Event, if ya think it'd work.

Then, I think, a whole lotta people who were "meh", before the Media Blitz, would find that their view of Google was significantly lower, than before.

And that's when you open the Anti-Trust Suits from Uncle Fed.

LOL: Gillette's #WokeMarketing About Toxic Masculinity Went So Well That They're Completely Flipping The Script And Now Making Ads About... Male Firefighters

Oh, so sometimes Toxic Masculinity saves lives and builds civilizations and stuff, too?

I did not know that.

I guess Gillette realized that after writing down $8 billion on their brand value.

PS, you're dead to me and no number of ads about firefighters or soldiers will resurrect you.

Razor brand Gillette says it is "shifting the spotlight from social issues to local heroes" after an ad delving into "toxic masculinity" caused a customer backlash.

The new ad, which launched last week, stars Australian firefighter and personal trainer Ben Ziekenheiner. "I've been a firefighter for 19 years," Mr Ziekenheiner says in the ad.

"People sometimes ask if it's scary. It can be, but like anyone who has a job to do, you prepare -- not just in terms of your equipment but also mentally and physically."

Now get this:

The ad spruiks the brand's SkinGuard range, highlighting the issue of sensitive skin for men who shave every day -- including firefighters, who are required to be clean-shaven as it enables a proper seal for their breathing mask.

"We have a very clear strategy when it comes to how we authentically connect with our consumers," said Manu Airan, associate brand director for Gillette Australia and New Zealand.

Authentic.

Authentic.

Now where do I remember seeing that word, in the contest of Gillette's brand management?

Oh yes. In an interview with Gillette's woke marketing guru, three months ago.

It was just three months ago that Gillette's #Woke #Feminist brand managers were babbling about Social Justice being the brand's "authentic" corporate voice.

Tell us more about the thinking behind the Gillette ad. What was really the impetus behind it?

I think there are a couple of things. Certainly, we encourage all of our brands to find their authentic voice in how they want to communicate with consumers and stakeholders.

"Stakeholder" is a political term, not a business term. It does not mean shareholder. It's a political term of art, a euphemism, for special interest pressure groups.

When Hillary Clinton talks about "conferencing" with "stakeholders," she means Planned Parenthood.

Note: Commenters in the business of business tell me I'm wrong, and that "stakeholders" has been incorporated into CorporateSpeak for at least 15 years.

So while it can be motivated by current events and current conversations that are happening, it still has to be what's right for the business, for the brands, and for the consumers they serve. Otherwise it's unsustainable, or even worse, it shows up as artificial.

You don't say, Corporate NPC.

The Corporate NPC redefines the completely-political euphemism "stakeholder" to mean the Gillette Razor Community, whatever that could possibly mean.

The reality is today, stakeholders of all kinds, whether it's consumers, investors, or employees, they expect more from brands than just selling products. They want to know what they believe in. They want to know their values.

But do they? Or did you just want to try a new branding strategy to jumpstart your dying brand?

They want to know the people behind them and the actions they're taking on important issues. And that was the impetus for Gillette.

So it had been the case that attacking traditional masculinity while celebrating a very non-traditional form of femininity -- namely, rebranding morbid obesity as healthy and confident at any size -- was Gillette's "authentic" corporate voice.




And now firefighters and traditional ideas about masculinity are its "authentic" voice, suddenly?

Here's a thought I just had: Maybe neither of these poses were "authentic corporate voices."

Maybe corporations that sell you widgets don't have voices of any kind, and certainly not "authentic" ones.

I guess having to take an $8 billion writedown on your brand's value can spur you to reevaluate what your "authentic" corporate voice really is, huh?

Will Gillette return to featuring more fit women in its womens shaving product adverts, I wonder? Will Gillette soon discover that cute women with good calves were its "authentic" corporate voice all along?

By the way -- Gillette showed its actual authentic corporate voice when it announced that declining sales were "an opportunity" for them.

Mr Airan said while shaving frequency had been reducing, "for us it's an opportunity". "Despite shaving frequency decreasing our sales have increased (thanks to) the innovation we are bringing to consumers' unmet needs," he said.

The authentic corporate voice? F***ing lying about everything."

Your weekly reminder that this group of useless liars and crap-merchants is, as far as the National Review crew and Establishment GOP are concerned, the only people who have full free speech rights in America.

Thus Spruik Zarathustra: I completely bleeped over the sentence "The ad spruiks the brand's SkinGuard range..."

Spruiks?

Spruiks?

Is it a typo or is this a real word?

Well I don't know, but there is a word "spruik."

spruik (third-person singular simple present spruiks, present participle spruiking, simple past and past participle spruiked)

(transitive, Australia) To promote a thing or idea to another person.
Synonyms
(promote something to someone): pimp, pitch, tout, hawk

That article is indeed from an Australian source.

OT: I don't know how it works and if it's the Jays or how our version of the FCC controls buying advertising but the Jays advertising only has about eight advertisers and the same ads are shown over and over and over throughout a baseball game. My mom and me watched the homerun derby on Fox just to see more ads than the same ones we've seen literally thousands of times.

69 You know, Gillette could learn something from Schick. Schick's commercial of the three gorgeous bikini models standing by the pool, with topaiary plants in front of their, uh, fronts. that they start trimming with razors , the best shape of a heart being done with a schick, is hilarious, non offensive, and makes you think, hmmm, if I"m going to be shaving there, let's have it look neat.

I want to look like a bikini model when I use a razor, not some grossly fat, mismatched bikini blob flopping around in the ocean. Why would I want a razor that promotes that as the result of using their product?

Posted by: Jen the original at August 23, 2019 04:28 PM (6rjhq)

70 Here's the message I sent to Gillette at their website. I categorized it as a "testimonial" since "sarcastic screed" wasn't an option:

Dear Gillette,

I guess this is kind of a testimonial so I have categorized it as such. I just wanted to let you know that this week I will finally exhaust my existing stockpile of Gillette shaving products. This is a milestone for me because it represents the first time in literally decades that I will not be replenishing those items with new Gillette products.

Until your idiotic "Toxic Masculinity" ad I was perfectly satisfied with Gillette's products and had no motivation to give even a second thought to changing. I was a customer on autopilot who would almost certainly have continued my existing purchasing habits forever, had you permitted me to do so.

Then someone in your fine organization decided that it would be a very clever thing to use advertising money to insult and lecture people like me in your customer base. You literally spent marketing money to gratuitously offend me and drive me to one of your competitors when not spending that money would have kept me with you for life! I'm still trying to figure out exactly where the profit in this strategy lies, but I guess you guys are a lot smarter than I am and you must know your stuff.

In any event, I just wanted to say good luck with the new marketing direction, and goodbye for good. I will never buy another Gillette product, ever.

Yep. That's why all the personal care and cleaning products outfits give away samples in those free goodie bags they hand out to college freshman.

John and Janie Freshman have probably never bought a lot of that stuff on their own before, leaving it up to Mom. If they get a free Cutthroat razor, and a free box of NoScum detergent, and those things work okay, there's a very good chance they'll keep buying those brands for the rest of their life. While I don't know this, I would not be surprised to learn that they actually PAY the colleges to put their products in the goodie bags.

Unless, of course, the razor company actively insults them, or something totally idiotic like that. But of course, no sane company would do such a thing.

Posted by: Broseidon - New Work Computer, Same Work Ethic at August 23, 2019 04:31 PM (oZ6kz)

95 I went to a work lecture on diversity, aka Woke Church. The guest presenter shared with us all the woke ads of the last five years and lovingly presented the Gillette ad. I think she would have made out with it if she could.

The Woke Girl Squad up at the front of the room was all yaaaaas kween! and chatty with comments and their feels. But I noticed the quiet, slightly bristly, younger white men in the back. Saying nothing but obviously feeling that nothing they might say about this mattered. So they kept their mouths shut and let the Woke girls fill up the space with chatter.

THAT is who Gillette has permanently lost. The silent average person tired of being attacked for existing, and knows verbally fighting this is useless. They fight with their wallets instead, and Gillette is the loser in that fight.

I think the guest presenter's heart was the right place; she was obviously scarred by life events as a kid and wants to prevent that for others. But the problem is she obviously equates the fact that life = hard + unfair, which is the universal situation of ALL HUMANS, to "life = hard + unfair because white people hate my color, gender, and size." Wrong message, and the media feeds that narrative. She knows no other. I wanted to hug her and tell her it's ok, but I would probably have been accused of assault by micro-aggression or something.

101 "Stakeholder" is a political term, not a business term.

It may have originated in politics, but businesses have been using that term for at least a decade and a half now.

Whenever I write a software test plan or a specification I include a section called stakeholders that identifies all of the people who are authorized to dictate changes in how things might be implemented or project requirements.


This has been a common term across several established companies.

102 Gillette had to change the firefighter ad.

Initially, it was a soothing, "tone down the toxic masculinity by using a sensitive caring fireman" ad.

The commercial has since been recut with a rock n roll track behind it and the fireman being a little more toxic.

Though, he still has a bit of soy in him.

103 I Indegogo'ed a heated razor from Gillette before the idiocy. I have to say, I really like shaving with the heated bits.

I did email the lab to tell them to polish their resumes after the dumbass ads.

Posted by: nip at August 23, 2019 04:32 PM (DfGpI)

104 PS, you're dead to me and no number of ads about firefighters or soldiers will resurrect you.

Even more damaging to them is that once you pick a razor most people tend to keep with it. That has been the whole basis behind the shaving industry - they are famous for it. You give away the handles and gouge consumers on the blades. It took this woke ad campaign to make me change, but I'm not going back from something that is working well and is much less expensive no matter what ads they run. It is done, not something I'm thinking about again. I suspect they are going to be cooked for a long time.

120 #38 Addendum. I commented before reading all the post and see that the guy is an Aussie. That might explain why I've been seeing that ad on TV for the whole summer or more.

Because advertisers here know that Hosers are already exposed to American ads when they watch shows that are just on US stations (and not simulcast with a Canadian station where the Canadian ads are played instead of the American ones by the Canadian cable company), they've occasionally run Aussie ads just to give the product a bit of different exposure.

One was the Miss Clairol series where the young guy tries to pick up a MILFy type saying, "Don't I know you from somewhere?" and she says something like, "I used to be your schoolteacher."

For now.

It's fascinating to see how "marketing gurus" turned into "value destroyers."

It's weird how they discovered that people who have to shave as part of their jobs - firefighters and soldiers - aren't motivated to buy something that regards them as loathsome, despicable creatures.

I guess they left that out of the marketing school curriculum.

166 I just bought 100 Feather blades for like $22. Probably last me 2 years.

Up until the Gillette ad, I bought both Feather and Gillette. Now it's only Feather.

It's too bad, because Gillette may not start as sharp, but it was smoother and more consistent. I think Feather doesn't quite have the same level of quality control. It's not a big deal though, if I get a harsh save from a brand new Feather blade, it usually smooths out by the second or third.

Posted by: Pig to man dreaming of lions

________________

I just think it's WAY overstated to the point of being a rounding error.

If China does nothing, Americans are looking at like $30-$60 billion in tariffs/taxes.

That's like what the US government spends in 48 hours. The tax cuts dwarf that, American companies basically got their taxes cut in half.

What actually will happen is countries will move their supply chain around and less exports from China. And china will probably eventually cut a deal or at least something to stop the bleeding temporarily.

199 I'm actually kind of glad they did this.

I've found brands I like better, in some cases a lot and the icing on the cake is they're less expensive!

The Arm & Hammer laundry detergent is shitloads better than tide, and sometimes 30% less. Same with their deodorant, I used to use old spice. Barbisol shave cream better and almost free. Palmolive is great. Finish dishwasher detergent. Costco for paper products.

I'm down to 2 razors - it takes me a while to go through them - once they're gone my house is 100% P&G free.

Just gotta check all them labels, I was surprised at how many brands are either P&G or Unilever (also woke assholes).

207 23 the kind of obesity that that woman in the photo has is nothing to celebrate. Gillette is ignorant and irresponsible. We need to encourage responsible behavior, not celebrate irresponsible behavior.
______________

Yeah, I really don't get what they were trying to accomplish here. We shouldn't shame and humiliate fat people? Fine, most people would likely agree with that. But we should put morbidly obese people in bikinis and photograph them as product spokes-models? Uh . . . wtf? That makes no sense.

Nobody aspires to look like that woman. All that excess fat is not only very unhealthy, it's also very unattractive. And it's unlikely that she does much shaving anyway, as she probably can't bend over far enough to reach her calves on a regular basis. So what's the point of using her in the ad, other than for the SJW's at Gillette to signal their phony virtue? There's none, and that's why it's wrong (in addition to being wrong for promoting unhealthy body images).

208 As bonhomme mentioned, the term "stakeholders" does have meaning within some companies, maybe specifically large ones. It represents those people who have input on and are tied into the the successful development and launch of a product or project.

234 Gillette found the edge of where going woke will hurt you. It is the same edge (though at much grander scale because Gillette took a flying leap off of it, instead of a dainty little step) that Dick's found.

There are two ways to go woke. I'll call them the "Nike Method" and the "Gillette Method."

The Nike Method is to use a positive image (nevermind the reality - just the image) to build up a part of your customer base. Yes, you will alienate other parts, but if you play your cards right you break even or improve a little bit.

The Gillette Method is to use a negative image to tear down your primary customer base. This will kill you, and it doesn't matter how virtuous you're telling everyone you are.

Dicks pissed off a major part of their customer base, but not all of it and the wine moms who need to buy junior his baseball cleats will keep them in business. Dicks got hurt, but nothing like Gillette.

Gillette went full retard.

You would think, and yet --- how many ads nowadays include a dumpy dumb husband/dad and an attractive, smarty-pants bossy wife/mom?

A few classics jump to mind:
-- Cold cuts ad with a series on scenes where the man does something stupid - trying on skinny jeans, facebook friending his teen daughter's pal - and each time the wife condescendingly saying "No!"
-- Subaru Hoodie-wearing idiot man and his GF retracing the steps of their roadtrip to find his sunglasses only to discover they fell into his hood, the GF smiling at him like he's a retard
-- Several ads where a dumpy, scruffy dad allows his daughter to apply make-up or dress him up as a princess to please her.

And so on.
It's easier to track the ads that show men as competent husbands and dads

Posted by: Kurt at August 23, 2019 04:20 PM (iGEs9)


1. It's 2.4%. Get back to me when it drops below 20000.

2. The Dow is thirty stocks. Not only doesn't it mean much for the general economy, it doesn't even mean that much for the stock market as a whole.

3. The reason for the drop is Trump is ramping up trade war rhetoric with respect to China. Shareholders are worried they may be unable to continue using cheap labor in China to undercut workers in the US. I find it hard to care that much. Oh, my neighbor may have more bargaining power for his labor? Horrible, I tell you. Just horrible.

I remember black monday 1987, when the market "crashed" a little over 500, and a total of around 600 the following day. I did a couple of illustrations about it for silicon valley companies at the time. A year later, and nobody remembered it. Now, 600 is barely an adjustment.

It's a rounding error on our economy, but the volatility back and forth is taking a toll on consumer sentiment. that's what the Chinese (and Democrats) are hoping for.

Good luck to your sister, nerdygirl, I hope she finds her path to wellness.

I've been--ok I am--that obese girl. It's tough when I couldn't lose weight because carbs + sugar = crack to my body. My weight was a symptom something was wrong in how my body processed nutrition, and when I would ask doctors how to fix it all I would get is 'stick the Standard American Diet and exercise and lose weight.' Which was a losing cycle for me, and unhelpful. My body not handling the recommended nutrition guidelines well, plus depression, equaled bad times.

I've lost so much weight doing keto, it's been so incredible and liberating to take back my health. I am so angry at the government for convincing all my doctors and society that eating fat was the problem. It was amazing to discover my body loves burning fat for fuel, fat makes it happy. Which goes against everything we are taught, especially now that animal meat and fat = gaia weeping.

People have to take responsibility for their health, yes, but they also need to have the hope that they can change it for the better somehow. When I lost that hope I packed on the weight, because it seemed like nothing I did mattered. There is a healthy middle ground between loving yourself no matter your shape or size, because you are worth it, and celebrating unhealthy behaviors even when your current weight will swiftly kill you. We as a society need to rediscover that middle.

Gordon Chang's books and interviews are enlightening.

Totally ignoring thousands of years of Chinese culture, communist culture, etc. This same philosophy has been drummed into CEOs, business majors, etc for the past 40 years, which is why we have such screaming and push back from the political and business class over standing up to China.

As in "you have approved this design, and this file is deliverable to your printshop."

acquisition) is run an as independent business unit. I suspect that may
change after the shot themselves in the face. Their executive suite
should have been cleared out by PG shock troops from Cincinnati by
now...

I haven't seen the Aussie firefighter ad but they have a LEO ad for the 'sensitive skin' and meh, I'm still not buying PandG products. I don't want ads that push that even our heroes need the special skin guard. I suppose if you can't compete on saying you shave closer, better, or cheaper it may be all you've got. Well not irritating the skin is better, but I don't want "oh the poor baby faced LEO would be miserable w/o our skin guard" Tell me that with that feature the busy hero can shave w/o needing extra time lathering up with special shaving gel and then washing the gel off when duty calls, but don't tell me " SEE SEE, even your supposed heroes are wimps that need protecting from a razor blade.

I stopped going because they're literally the stop-and-rob around here. Every night one of them gets robbed somewhere in the news coverage area.
A little while ago, I made a snarky comment about how it was impossible that one of them had been robbed due to their anti-gun stance. The person I was speaking with got very upset with me, because they were somehow tied to the company.
"That is a lie. We do not have those signs, and haven't had them in a long time!"
"How would I know? I've never been back since you put them up!"

I am completely indifferent to the _marketing_ decisions that companies like Nike, Gillette, Dick's, etc make.

I am VERY concerned when employers FORCE their EMPLOYEES to submit to this woke horsesh!t in order to keep their jobs, and that menace grows every day.

First they started forcing employees into diversity workshop training, to correct their "wrongthink." Then they started harvesting evidence of "wrongthink" from employees' and candidates' online footprint.

Now we have the introduction of the MANDATORY use of "preferred pronouns" in the workplace, so that wrongthinkers are "corrected" every minute of every workday, beaten into submission to this evil false doctrine of utopian egalitarianism, in order TO BE ABLE TO MAKE A LIVING!

THAT'S the thing we should be angry about, not the fact that marketers are, and have always been, sh!theads.

416 I'm probably late to the party, but we boycotted all PG products after the SJW commercials. It was difficult at first. It's amazing how much PG products we were using (Shaving/soaps, laundry, cleaning...) . but we made the switch. We ended up finding products that were cheaper, better, or both.

No more PG ever.

When even other Chinese think you smell bad? You got a serious problem.

USA elites were convinced that all we needed to do was to allow China to join the world in trade and diplomacy, to help it have a small bit of capitalism, and it would see the light and become a major capitalistic country, eventually turning into a free market, free country.



Not just the elites, I am also a proponent of the theory. China though somehow managed to combine capitalism and a dictatorship to at least appear to function competently. We should have been economically brutal after Tiammen Square.

Last time I tried shaving with a disposable it felt like I was trying to
shave with a rabid porcupine. Barbed wire ain't in it. And I don't
exactly have sensitive skin. I hear there are better disposables, but
I'll stay with the 3 blade Shick that is so sharp out of the box it
frightens me, I wouldn't even feel it if I cut my own throat.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at August 23, 2019 05:05 PM (KZzsI)

The trick is having a standard pattern that cuts across the grain rather than against.

I like disposables because I can *quite literally* shave while mostly asleep and not shred my face.

Is it super-close? Nope, but it will meet military inspection, which is what counts.

If I didn't have to do that, I'd have a beard most of the time. I get why retirees have beards.

That experiment, as transparently foolish as it was from the start, is plainly an error.

I suspect the Chinese were big on bribery and espionage even back then to get what they wanted. Everyone was so focused on Russia that they ignored the tiger at their back.

When we were looking to buy a house the realtor showed us one owned by a Chinese couple.

I don't know what they cooked in there, but the whole house was foul with a stale grease smell. "Uh, yes, looks very nice," we gasped. "We'll ... uh ... just be stepping outside now." (Since we couldn't hold our breath much longer.)

I love Chinese food, but I'll never forget that. Could you air out the house enough to get rid of the smell? I dunno. Maybe. Maybe not.

The entire thing was a massive failure of cultural intelligence. The idea that trade and a national economy could be employed for the purposes of political gain, rather than simple economic gain, completely eluded those masterminds. (Something the domestic Left never lost sight of, naturally.)

China MFN was one of the all-time dumbest policy decisions of my lifetime. Easily.
