Ugly ONT

If last night's ONT was cute, this one is going to be ugly.

Ugly Dispute

FATHER-SON DUO SHOOT NEIGHBOR DEAD OVER TRASH DISPUTE

This one's just all around ugly. Personally, I don't think I would shoot a man over a mattress, but the victim was highly aggressive. I wonder what Andrew Branca (The Law of Self Defense) thinks? I wish we could see what is just off to the right in the film as the shooting starts. The victim clearly says “You're dead”, but we can't see if he moves towards the armed man or not. I'm going to assume by his preceding demeanor that he did, in any event, it was the last thing he ever did. (Warning: Graphic video at link)


Ugly Americans

Well, ugly westerners at least.

Western Hypocrites: How Dare You Criticize Poland?

I have to say, I love the banner that's shown at the link. No Nazis and No Commies too. How hard is that? Most of Eastern Europe gets it.


Ugly Mix-Up



Ugly Dating Scene


Tinder date threatened to share nude photos if woman didn't agree to sex, warrant alleges

Oh, wonder!
How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,
That has such people in ’t!
― William Shakespeare, The Tempest: Act 5 Scene 1

This is better? Seriously, feminists, this is better? This is the dating scene you want, where women act like slobbering bitches in heat, fuck strangers at the drop of a hat, let them film the act, and then expect to get treated like a lady? Look, the guy is wrong, he's scum, I hope they throw the book at him but really, where do you suppose he got the idea that he could demand sex on his terms and she's expected to comply? Where exactly do you suppose he got this idea? This is where the sexual revolution has come to, and it's an ugly place.

Ugly Sex

Calls mount for regulation of sex robots

Look, if someone wants to fuck a machine that thousands of other men have also used, that's up to them. I don't think the government has any place it in, despite the left's frantic calls for more regulations. Be that as it may, robot brothels are just...sad. And ugly.


Ugly Government

Cajun Navy ordered to cease rescues in NC city battered by Florence

Petty local government functionaries would rather people drown if they can't be the ones getting credit for saving them. This is just another example of how government officials, at all levels despise free citizens. Why, we might get the idea that we don't really need them at all, and then where would these useless cunts be? They might have to get a job and make an honest living or something!


Not Ugly

Last night I Hordesourced opinions on which car I should get. Morons, I present to you the winner:

Fully loaded 2015 BMW 435i Xdrive drop top convertible. Thanks to everyone for their input, I went back and forth on which one, but I think I made the right choice. I really like the car, it's sweet AF.

9 Alien Love - a brief selection from the novel

Christy slowly unbuttoned her school uniform blouse, revealing the alluring Little Mermaid themed one-piece bathing suit beneath.

"Come here, Bart," she whispered. "Bert. Whatever." She burped, regurgitating some beer into her mouth.

As the stranger moved over towards her in the dim light, the pounding music took its toll on her and she moaned, "Take me, Bratt. Take me now."

And her moan of passion suddenly turned into a scream of terror as she saw the figure open its mouth, revealing poison-dripping fangs, as it unhinged its jaw to widen the unholy hell-pit of a mouth.

Its tentacles were everywhere. Yet, by sheer feminist furious drunken might, she was able to extricate herself from its clutches, avoid its gnashing beak, and fled for the confines of the bathroom "time out" space.

Damn, she pondered while puking, how much acid and tequila did I take tonight?

Sad.. It will be hard to see her go.. but it is for the best.. especially for her.

@ChadPergram
15m

I was stunned to see that the Judiciary Committee noticed Judge Kavanaugh's vote for Monday morning, in the midst of our ongoing discussions regarding the terms and conditions under which Dr. Christine Blasey Ford could testify before the Cmte

Incredibly, you did so well before the 10:00 pm deadline you..arbitrarily imposed just hrs before. The imposition of aggressive & artificial deadlines regarding the date & conditions..has created tremendous & unwarranted anxiety and stress on..Ford

Your cavalier treatment of a sexual assault survivor who has been doing her best to cooperate with the Cmte is completely inappropriate. Yesterday, we had what I thought was a productive dialogue about the conditions..Ford would find acceptable

It is now abundantly clear that regardless of the assurances Senator Grassley has made, you have been tasked with pressuring Dr. Ford to agree to conditions you find advantageous to the nominee

In an email sent today at 4:01 p.m., I advised you that..Ford had traveled to meet with the FBI..about..death threats she had been receiving & we would need until tomorrow to confer w/her & to be able to provide you w/a well-considered response

Rather than allowing her the time she needs to respond to the take-it-or-leave-it demand.:you sent us an email at 5:47 pm - which you again gave to the media first -
insisting that we accept your "invitation" for a Wed hrng by 10:00 pm tonight

The 10:00 p.m. deadline is arbitrary. Its sole purpose is to bully Dr. Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family

She has already been forced out of her home and continues to be subjected to harassment, hate mail, and death threats. Our modest request is that she be given an additional day to make her decision

107 A march along our traditional paths, through central Asia to central Europe and Scandinavia is necessary and right.

It will reunite our descendant peoples, from Indic to Tatar and Aryan. It will reunite our ancient empire, and defeat the octophrenic God of the Jews.

Most importantly, it will defeat the metaphysical extension of the old Universe, the SMR and their GECSPLAN. It will ruin the evil plans of the dead gods, and place all eight corners of the world beneath the roof of our mighty pagoda.

143 I have a tough problem I want to throw out here as I know many have had complicated family situations. Simply put, I don't think my daughter, whom I used to be close with, loves me anymore. Things seemed to change practically overnight. She was affectionate, she'd talk to me about practically everything, we shared interests, did stuff together...then it stopped, like turning off a light. Now she's distant, doesn't want to be anywhere near me, and I have to practically interrogate her to have anything resembling a conversation most of the time.

She's in early adolescence, so maybe this is a thing. I can't think of anything that I might have done to cause this. There was no big fight or falling out or anything like that, and I am extremely even-tempered with my kids with very rare exception. I'm at a loss here and it's breaking my heart.

We are in our early 60s and both have back issues and arthritis. Also have a 8 yo yellow lab and a 3 yo chocolate lab. They keep us moving but labs don't usually have long lifespans. I'm already wondering if we can handle a puppy in the future.

I'm sure J will want to get another dog when the older one goes. Maybe having an older dog around would make it easier to train the pup as she would have an example. OK, I'm rambling, LOL

183 I watched the video of the shootout at The Mattress Corral, but didn't hear the words. So the last thing the victim said was "You're dead"?

Because just before that, victim's common law wife said that (her or his) brother had just handed the victim a baseball bat. That was in the article.

I wondered why the bond was so low, $25k each, on a murder charge.

I'm pretty sure the rule is Never bring a baseball bat to a gunfight, though.

196 Insomniac
That is a tough situation. Since she's early adolescent, female and there were no crisis issues. My small bit of experience says that it's part hormonal and part, being a teenager and trying stuff out. I think it's time to hang on because it could be a wild ride. She'll need to hear, and know, that you love her, support her and will never walk away.
Not an easy task. It may not even have anything to do with you at all. Or, she's hearing trash talk about you from outside the home and is wary.
Hold on tight, but not too tight. Yeah, I know.
Good luck my friend.

197 I have a tough problem I want to throw out here as I
know many have had complicated family situations. Simply put, I don't
think my daughter, whom I used to be close with, loves me anymore.
Things seemed to change practically overnight. She was affectionate,
she'd talk to me about practically everything, we shared interests, did
stuff together...then it stopped, like turning off a light. Now she's
distant, doesn't want to be anywhere near me, and I have to practically
interrogate her to have anything resembling a conversation most of the
time.



She's in early adolescence, so maybe this is a thing. I can't think
of anything that I might have done to cause this. There was no big
fight or falling out or anything like that, and I am extremely
even-tempered with my kids with very rare exception. I'm at a loss here
and it's breaking my heart.

Posted by: Insomniac at September 21, 2018 10:30 PM (NWiLs)


She's 12, 13, maybe 14? The distancing is normal. The hormones are going haywire. She's not rejecting you, but wanting her space. Don't push it. Trust me, she still wants her daddy around, but on her own terms.

Happened in 1986 - she was 20, we were engaged at the time.

She can, to this day, recall the exact place she was abducted, the day of the week, the month, what the van looked like, what it smelled like, what she was wearing at the time, the knife the POS rapist held to her throat as he was raping her, the street she was dropped off on and the house where she called the police.

Didn't ruin her life, she doesn't obsess about it. But she will never, ever forget a single one of those details.

Professor RecoveredMemory can't even recall the town the so-called "assault" took place in or how she got home from the "gathering".

260 Insomniac,
It's called puberty....hormones...etc...I hear it's extremely normal behavior.


It's not at all unusual for pubertal kids to feel newly uncomfortable around the parent of the opposite sex. It has to do with a new awareness of that parent as a sexual being combined with the kid's own insecurities about sexuality. FWIW, one of my female cousins had the same thing happen when her older son hit puberty; he didn't want her to give him a good-night kiss any longer. As other morons have noted, be patient; this too will pass.

Insomniac, you are a mom? If so, This is absolutely normal. Early teens are the rockiest stage of life for moms and daughters and they almost have to go through some pulling back and checking out to grow into healthy adulthood. If you can just deal with the shift for a year or few, it your time to pull back too, and be less companion and more parent. If you are a good guide and reliable support, the rift closes up and y'all will be close again. I think nature builds this in, and hormones help drive it.

i ancient myth, when Demeter's companion daughter is stolen and she grieves for her, there's more to the myth than persephone hates to be stolen, but returns and the world renews...Persephone has a chance to become a very powerful being in her own right, with powers and duties and sexual force, But the daughter does return, and shares a more limited but happy time with her mother.

So nobody steal my idea.

301 Hey Insom, I have a wonderful 30 year-old daughter so I know something of this. When she was in high school she went through a very dark phase where she withdrew and seemed very depressed. My heart broke for her because I knew she was struggling, and I couldn't seem to reach her or do anything to help her. It was terrible,

She did manage to pull out of it herself by the time she was a senior. Today she is married to a wonderful guy and they're expecting their first child. Her life is in order, she's happy and our relationship has never been better.

I guess the moral is, these things pass and you just need to stay in range until they do. Don't despair, and be available.

I was stunned to see that the Judiciary Committee noticed Judge Kavanaugh's vote for Monday morning, in the midst of our ongoing discussions regarding the terms and conditions under which Dr. Christine Blasey Ford could testify before the Cmte

Incredibly, you did so well before the 10:00 pm deadline you..arbitrarily imposed just hrs before.

I am guessing that last part about jumping the gun is a lie?

I saw that one of the 'onorous conditions' the Committee required was that Blasey-Ford be questioned by a woman; the Committee Republicans apparently realize that this simple provision derails the narrative being constructrd.

There were numerous Monty Python routines about psychologically-damaged males who required all sorts of coddling and impossibly exacting special treatment. One term often used by men to describe such whining contemptible men is "cunt," but that term is of course out of the question in the present business.

Posted by: Jewells45 at September 21, 2018 10:52 PM (dUJdY)

I'm very sorry to hear that. There's a lot of this going around. I have some first hand experience with self-injurious behavior. It's usually about control and redirecting inner stress or pain to the external. The good thing (to the extent there can be one) is cutters typically are very controlled and aren't seeking to seriously injure themselves. I would suggest getting her connected with a good therapist that focuses on this type of behavior.

348 143 I have a tough problem I want to throw out here as I know many have had complicated family situations. Simply put, I don't think my daughter, whom I used to be close with, loves me anymore. Things seemed to change practically overnight. She was affectionate, she'd talk to me about practically everything, we shared interests, did stuff together...then it stopped, like turning off a light. Now she's distant, doesn't want to be anywhere near me, and I have to practically interrogate her to have anything resembling a conversation most of the time.

She's in early adolescence, so maybe this is a thing. I can't think of anything that I might have done to cause this. There was no big fight or falling out or anything like that, and I am extremely even-tempered with my kids with very rare exception. I'm at a loss here and it's breaking my heart.
Posted by: Insomniac at September 21, 2018 10:30 PM (NWiLs)

At least you got that strong bond early on. Her personality and subconscious were hardwired by 6. She will be back, promise.

I lost my 2 sons recently. As soon as I got an order back, and the experts/doctors were away after close to 3 years, the ex wife turned them on me in a few weeks. They are gone. They hate me for no reason. I feel dead inside as their love and affection and our bond was all I had to live for. What is maddening about the entire situation is multiple doctors and my lawyer and the courts allowed this to happen. 100's 1000's of dollars down the drain, 6 years out of my life, and what is the most sinister is that they are and will be both more fucked up in the short and long term because of it. Hell. I can't even get the police to enforce a court order for them to spend time with me. Last week when I saw them last at school, they didn't even say hi, wave, and gave me looks like they hated me and had nothing but contempt for me. It's almost as if bad people of a certain caste can get away with abusing children and nobody cares and plays kabuki theater.

If I had anything to leave them at all, I'd kill myself now so I could leave them my resources. Nope all tapped out from doctors, family court lawyers, and judges who swore to do no harm to kids.

It could be worse, Insomiac. You were able to bond with her at a young age when it really counted.

I'm sure J will want to get another dog when the older one goes. Maybe having an older dog around would make it easier to train the pup as she would have an example. OK, I'm rambling, LOL

383 That father and son should go to prison.

Obviously, I am a big supporter of 2A and of self-defense. To that end, if you break into my home, you are dead. Your end motive be damned. I will attack your position with everything I have. There will not be warning shots and the goal will be your annihilation. Execute you in cold blood? No. The initial storm will be so fierce you will not survive. I have the training, the will, and the tools to make this a reality.

However, this was not in the ultimate privacy of the Miller family home. It was in an alley way. And while the victim was being aggressive, there is nothing I can see where he actually threatened the lives of either Miller man. Miller Sr. might have set the conditions about approaching within three feet, but that is not the legal standard. Remember that parking lot tightwad in Florida? He's in a shit ton of trouble and he legitimately got assaulted. There's still a strong argument that it wasn't enough. There's even less hostile action from the victim here.

If you believe in armed self-defense, you need to practice de-escalation as well. Not for in the home, as I already mentioned, but for situations like this. If the Millers start moving backward, without holstering their weapons, they can likely convince Howard to back down himself, and they can all break contact. If Howard is such an idiot that he still attacks, they are more than ready to take him down.

Instead, they chose to stand their ground over a fucking mattress in a dirty alley, and Howard wound up dead. They need to suffer the consequences for that stupid action.

I was very fortunate that my daughter, now 22, was always very mature for her age. When I noticed this and asked her gently about it, she actually explained it very calmly to me.

"Dad, I'm at a time in my life where I'm no longer a child but not yet a woman. I am experiencing thoughts and feelings that you could not possibly understand. This is the reason that I am not confiding in you more. Give me time, and this will work itself out. Just be there if I need you."

I was able to hold it together until she left, then lost it for 30 minutes or so after that. She was right. She is now back, relationship is stronger than ever.

It's probably a combination of the above.

here's the meat:

There may be nothing you can do that will immediately resolve the problem. But a sincere heart felt talk with her expressing you love, concern, and open desire for good relationship will stick somewhere in her brain.
With loving patience that sincere seed you planted will grow.

The guy in the orange shirt seemed to be at fault, though it's hard to tell when the video comes off him to focus on the younger guy with the shotgun. It sure looks like the gun in orange did something that made the old guy with the pistol try to fend him off with his leg.

517 Insomniac, what all the others said, very true.

There is little more awful than a young teen girl sometimes (my daughter was a four star bitch, and so was I way back when).

Also, some of the things you've mentioned in your life, the fact that she is growing up will make her wonder/more aware/sensitive to some of that, and she isn't going to necessarily know how to handle all of it.

In my prayers, for your strength to keep being there no matter what she does (or doesn't do, like talk to you sometimes), and it WILL pass.

My dad split when I was 15 (laid all his plans, sent me on a trip with my mom, met us at the airport and took us home, got up the next day and ate the breakfast she made, said "I'm not coming back", and left for good--except for the night he came when we were at choir practice to take most of the furniture, and leave a note saying "you have not been robbed")

He was not good about support, etc--wanted my mom to sign papers and so on, and held up funds, and repairs for the house, and so on to leverage, but she was just as hard-headed as he was.

We stayed in the house with no heat, and things were pretty bad.

When I left for college, he really put the pressure on her, and my first apartment was a little ancient ****hole with no phone because that's what I could afford for both of us when the house was finally in a state to no longer be inhabited.

To mom's credit, she used to tell me to keep reaching out to him because no matter what was between them, he was my father.

I tried, no matter how angry I was with him, and no matter how many times he stood me up.

After she died, he stopped standing me up, and started to respond to my overtures, and we developed quite a good relationship--I think the only really adult one he had with any of his five kids, because they all moved out before this blew up--I was the baby by 8 years--and we had to basically start from scratch when I was in my 20s and on my own.

I tell you all of this to say no matter how bad it may get, there is hope so don't give up.

At the end, I loved my dad, I know he did love me, and I still miss him every day now that he is dead.

In my prayers

Oh, yes!

When my daughter was a little girl, Mr. DeV. used to take her fishing all the time. (We're walking distance to a river --- one where it's nearly impossible to actually CATCH anything.)

The boys and older daughter found the uncatching there boring but younger daughter would smile, grab her sketch book, and go.
Quiet one-on-one time it was and, as I say, no real danger of a fish disturbing the peace. Their special thing.

When she was about 12 --- bang! Overnight. Done.
Not emotional. Not snotty. Just no.
Very, very painful for him.

I think she was almost 18 --- the spring of her senior year--- when out of the blue one day she asked him if he wanted to go to the river.

Hang in there. They don't forget the close times.
She'll be older and different, but she'll be back.

Senate (and House) committee hearings are open to the public unless they are specifically closed. Attendance by the public is first-come, first-served. In high-profile hearings, tickets are given out first-come, first-served. So the nutcases can get into the hearing but once they act up, they're hauled out. The tickets to hearings are not given out by senators (or congressmen).

Be patient with her - but don't be a pushover - just keep letting her know that you love her, and you will both get through this.

And remember that if she seems mean or surly right now, it's probably because stuff is going on in her social life that is bugging her.

She can't yell at her friends, because they might leave her.

She is confident enough in your love of her that she knows that she can yell at you and you won't abandon her.

It's a good thing!

609 The M1 gas system is a fairly poor implementation but in Garand's defense, it was mandated by the Army because they thought at the time it was designed that drilling a hole in the barrel was bad. So the gas tube goes all the way to the end of the barrel, so it could use a gas trap to pressurize. And even after the Army relented, Garand couldn't change much, so you still have this long long long op rod.


The M14 system is the tits though for a Garand type action.

620 That father and son should go to prison.



Obviously, I am a big supporter of 2A and of self-defense. To that
end, if you break into my home, you are dead. Your end motive be damned.
I will attack your position with everything I have. There will not be
warning shots and the goal will be your annihilation. Execute you in
cold blood? No. The initial storm will be so fierce you will not
survive. I have the training, the will, and the tools to make this a
reality.



However, this was not in the ultimate privacy of the Miller family
home. It was in an alley way. And while the victim was being aggressive,
there is nothing I can see where he actually threatened the lives of
either Miller man. Miller Sr. might have set the conditions about
approaching within three feet, but that is not the legal standard.
Remember that parking lot tightwad in Florida? He's in a shit ton of
trouble and he legitimately got assaulted. There's still a strong
argument that it wasn't enough. There's even less hostile action from
the victim here.



If you believe in armed self-defense, you need to practice
de-escalation as well. Not for in the home, as I already mentioned, but
for situations like this. If the Millers start moving backward, without
holstering their weapons, they can likely convince Howard to back down
himself, and they can all break contact. If Howard is such an idiot that
he still attacks, they are more than ready to take him down.



Instead, they chose to stand their ground over a fucking mattress in
a dirty alley, and Howard wound up dead. They need to suffer the
consequences for that stupid action.

You know, in general, I agree with just about everything you say. The situation should have been deescalated by the Millers, however as I understand it they have no "duty to retreat" in Texas. Given that, when Howard (as I understand the facts) grabbed a deadly weapon (baseball bat) and advanced upon the Millers while threatening to kill them, both the subjective and objective conditions of "reasonable fear for their lives" are met, and the shooting should be classified as self defense. It was probably stupid and unnecessary because the situation shouldn't have reached that point (common sense definition, not legal one), but not illegal.
Of course, I'm not a lawyer, so take what I say w/ a grain of salt, but that's my layman's conclusion.

626 So we're talking Garands? No issue about ammo and op rod. 1) Garand-suitable ammo is available, made by several commercial manufacturers (Prvi Partizan has good stuff, about 70 cents/round) 2) as others have noted, adjustable gas plugs; Schuster plug needs to be tuned until set right (and thus changed if you change ammo), the one made by GarandGear is self-adjusting, so easier.


And if you reload, of course, then no problem. Just load to Garand load specs, or within that range.


As for carbines, I don't put them and ARs or Mini-30s in the same category. M-1s have .357 ballistics, almost exactly, in terms of their standard 110g FMJ round. It all depends on your intended use. Plinking and fun, M-1 beats both easily. Home defense with concern about too-much-power, M-1 beats both easily. Varmint hunting or in the case of AR, lots of other more serious uses, then M-1 is not top of the list.

Posted by: Grump928(C) at September 21, 2018 11:45 PM (yQpMk)

Well they're lightweight, pretty and fun to operate. Like Thai girls

If you think of them as pistol-caliber carbines, they sorta fit that role, with a more long range reach.

Now they have some seriously pimp, lightweight AR builds out there today, but...I dunno. The muzzle blast on them is pretty fierce compared to a M1 Carbine.

I'd hate to just write them off entirely.

709 I believe M-1 carbines were particularly popular in the Pacific because 1) much lighter, in the heat 2) ammo much lighter 3) at least during island campaigns, visibility/range limited, so no real use for Garand 4) hard cover not nearly as prevalent as in Europe, so, again, not as much value to Garand.


Insomniac, an interesting book on the industrial mobilization for WWII in the US is "Freedom's Forge", which focuses on the efforts of two key figures, Bill Knudsen of GM/auto giant, and Henry Kaiser. First of many on this general topic on my list. One related anecdote: bought an ammo belt for Garand en bloc clips (forget the nomenclature), accurate reproduction of originals. Two of the components, the snaps and something else, are made by the *same* vendors as produced them in WWII - they're still in business.

714 Well, as I understand it, the guy who is dead was handed a baseball bat by his cousin or nephew just after he told the guy who shot him he was gonna kill both him and his son.

I have a feeling we'll find out that the dumpster belongs to the shooter and the dead guy was tossing his stuff in the dumpster like it was his.

People get very irate about garbage disposal cause it involves a lot of money and the City/town can fine you a lot of money.

There's a tell in that the dead guy and his family have been there since April but never met their neighbors until now in September.

And am I wrong in guessing the dead guy is a Black guy or Hispanic? This may have had something to do with the attitudes on everyone's part.

Alright, since you allow for it (plus I think it's quite funny...at least I laughed my ass off anyway).

So most of my regulars are pretty outspoken conservative men, in fact three are retired military.

In any event, they were discussing the whole Kavanaugh bit tonight at the bar and getting a bit louder as time went on. Well, there was a young woman and her friend in that were in there late 20s/early 30s, kinda of Asheville-looking people (I can describe further, if you need). I guess they got there muster up and started calling the guys sexist and talking about Ford needinga hearing, etc.

Well, one of my regulars pulls me aside and says he would give me a $20 tip if I would cut off service to the one girl when he made it obvious that I needed to.

So she goes to the bathroom and he goes as well to the men's room, then he comes back into the bar and winks at me and she is right behind him. He proceeds to announce to the bar (8 or 10 customers left) that she tried to touch him when he left the bathroom. She goes off and says it's bullsh*t and then tried to order another drink.

I told her I couldn't serve her, because I had to investigate into whether or not his claims were true and that I had to take them seriously.

The entire bar crowd starts laughing their ass off and she turned red as a beet. Even her friend was laughing.

Needless to say, she didn't tip me on her tab, but I think the whole experience was well worth it!

I hesitate to say one got normal at 20 and the other is still nuts.

It's certainly possible that whatever millennial he has taking care of his Twitter account passed out drunk and left himself logged in, and said millennial's communist roommate is having fun.

I'm not saying that's what's happening, or even that it's the most likely scenario, but it's a possible one.

I'm not buying that Grassley wrote (or even approved) those tweets.

773 Recommend that book I mentioned. The impact of individuals, and the amazing personalities that do so much at key times, really comes through.


Knudsen (stereotype immigrant success story, from shipyard worker/boxer in NYC to head of GM and acknowledged mass production guru) got a phone call from FDR not long after Dunkirk (when Washington finally started really freaking out). FDR asked him to drop his life, quit post as head of world's largest company, and come chair a board with vague powers that was to be set up to jump-start mobilization.


He agreed instantly. Went on to help lay the groundwork for mobilization (military was flat-footed and tiny when Pearl Harbor happened, but military production was already being expanded and planned).

I would doubt he does his Twitter feed personally, but has staffers do it.

820 I have both an M-1 (full size, sniper grade, a gift from the wife. Yes, you may be jealous) and a Japanese Arisaka carbine (another gift from the wife). Even though I prefer 30-06 to 6.5 Jap, if I was fighting in a jungle I think I'd prefer the Arisaka. Yes, 8 round clip is easier to load than 5 individual, but the lighter weight and shorter length make a difference in the heat and thick foliage. The Arisaka is a sweet firing, well engineered weapon.

Confusion abounds, though.


Hard to believe Grassley's twitter was hacked, somewhat believable a staffer is responsible for the odd tweets (not just "2b", but esp. the Schumer stuff).


I still think the liar nutcase doesn't show.


But Grassley and the GOP continue to be so inept, such disgraces to the country in their refusal to crush the insane and despicable behavior of the Dems, that there's not much to cheer.


And the country desperately needs the very nearly useless GOP to win, big, in November, which is a good possibility. The electorate won't even resist the trap it's in, it gets what's coming to it.

Correction, the Executive Committee meeting is still on.The hearing has been postponed. The vote has not been postponed though. The hearing wouldn't have happened Monday anyway and I don't know when they marked it postponed but would suspect it was when they did the press release around 6.

If I understand this... She had until 10:00pm tonight to say whether she
would appear Monday, when the vote to move out of committee is
scheduled. If the twitting is legit, then she's been given an extension
past 10:00pm tonight on when she can say she'll appear, but the Monday
meet is still scheduled?


Posted by: davidt at September 22, 2018 12:50 AM (FhO+a)

No... they had agreed to a Wednesday hearing IF she agreed to the only terms they were willing top offer. Grassley said if she didn't agree to the Wednesday date by tonight, that the vote would be Monday.

876 Testimony, if it occurs, for Weds. Might be academic now or soon, but read entire Grassley letter today, to Ford's people. Very thorough. Lays out demands rejected, and accepted.


But as I've said the past two days, the GOP is showing its political cluelessness again. They tremble with fear at the (ridiculous) prospect of airhead single females and dumb suburban females and their soy-drenched "male" acquaintances frothing up with "war on women!" delusions.


It's not happening, it isn't gonna happen. Instead, despite Trump and a few others demonstrating that responsible, direct, honest approaches to serious topics is both successful and politically rewarding, they indulge the worst (and worsening) people and instincts in the country.


So yeah Kav is confirmed, as I've said all along, and Dems probably suffer mid-term damage from this farce. But it remains the case that there are no serious adults in the Beltway outside the WH, and the voters seem quite OK with that.

Not trying to make a lame joke at your wife's expense, but that is a happy ending to the story. I'm sure your then fiance was relieved as well. No courtroom trial to face her rapist and all that as well as not having to continue to write letters to the parole board rehashing the event and being forced to relive it. The rapist being dead probably helped your fiance move on as much as the good people around her.

Your/her story is why this Blasey Ford bitch should rot in hell. I want real honest-to-God rapists/sexual predators tossed in the clink with the key thrown away as there is no rehabilitation possible for sexual predators. But I also want those women who make deliberate or agenda-driven false accusations of rape/sexual assault to face the same sentence as those they falsely accuse would face were they convicted of that crime.

I'm an old-fashioned feminist: I'm all about the equality. Screw this poundmetoo trial by mob and 'every woman must be believed' nonsense. Every woman must be heard -- by the police and their claims investigated. Where it goes from there is a case by case basis. I'm sick of the puritans on the left and their unsubstantiated witch hunts.

917 Okay, so the NYT published their Rod Rosenstein hit piece today and EVERYONE fell for it, Hannity, Sara Carter, Gregg Jarrett, Joe Di Genova, etc., etc., but NOT Levin.

Levin logically reasons that a) The NYT never isn't lying, and 2) the info about Rosie was leaked to the NYT by Mueller's squad on behalf of McCabe.

I agree and I will go one step further: Why would the NYT turn on Rosie on a dime like this? Either 1) They are absolutely desperate about the midterms and so are trying anything to get Trump to fire someone so they can allege "obstruction". Or . . .

2) The NYT have discovered that Trump rolled Rosie within days of being sworn in because Adm. Mike Rodgers read Trump into the spying scandal (which is worse by orders of magnitude than anything any of us can even conceive), which Rosie was neck deep in, and so Trump allowed Rosie to appoint Mueller Special Counsel to buy Trump the time and distraction he needed to fully investigate the entire mess. And so the NYT can't reveal that Trump and Rod played them, so they throw their last gambit with this story.

Crazy? Maybe.

Just remember, Trump plays a long game and he never forgets a slight. And, he loves this country and doesn't give two shits about DC and its population of worthless scum.

Posted by: Braenyard at September 22, 2018 12:59 AM (Cz+xD)


There's a historical fiction novel about some Marine Raiders, written by a WWII Marine Raider: John McCormick's The Right Kind of War. It's really hard to tell how much is fiction - it's a novel after all - and how much is straight from McCormick's own experience since he's writing fiction about things he did and saw.

Anyway, in the book, the protagonist's squad takes a look at the results after they ambush a Japanese patrol, and what's left of the Japanese who were in the BAR man's field of fire is gruesome enough that the Thompson gunners start scrounging around for BARs even though it weighs twice as much dry as a Thompson, to say nothing of the ammo load.

That anecdote probably shoots all the way through apocryphal since it's a single data point from a work of fiction, but John McCormick apparently thought it was worth putting into a book about Marine Raiders. *shrug*

Posted by: rhomboid at September 22, 2018 01:09 AM (QDnY+)


Frankly, I'm not so sure. The ladies as a group are exceptionally prone to social pressure, and to appeals to emotion ("it's for the children!"). Single women in the absence of a husband look for a protector, and the government fills that function.

This is a problem, because it means that they're easily stampeded. Not every one, by any means, as we see here on the HQ. But a significant fraction of them are susceptible to such stampeding.

Now could the GOP mobilize Teh Stupid among them? Yes, if they weren't so inept.

But consider what you're saying: let's manipulate a stupid demographic OUR way, instead of the other way.

The more fundamental question is why a stupid demographic is voting at all.

957 PPsh-41 was very popular with the Red Army - and the Wehrmacht, which quickly learned to like them and of course captured a crap-ton in '41. There's even a line in the very good German "Stalingrad" movie (1993) where one German says to the other "these are better than ours" as he hands a younger guy a PPsh-41.


But it was very situational. If you're trying to shoot through a brick wall at a range of 80 yards inside the Red October factory in Stalingrad, you'd want your Mosin, not your PPsh-41.

985 No Jay, I'm not talking about manipulating that demo. I'm saying the GOP doesn't have the political sense to realize that that often manipulated demo is not going to be stirred up by this, and thus their extreme caution in indulging the despicable smearing of a spotless figure is a disaster.


Of course the country is stuck, and Zero Zip Nada was done to begin un-sticking it this cycle. Trump helped push two senators out, which is yuuuge. But beyond that - nothing. There have been no big votes (for the 9th year running, and in some ways longer) - so, not even any fault-lines a president could cite to ID people to be replaced.


Same GOP that is just fine with no border security (and still tries, at every opportunity, to expand instead of shut down and fix the disastrous work visa system) is the GOP we desperately hope wins in November.

1004 Saw SJWs on Twitter fretting about a poll that showed Hispanics are A. not terribly great at turning out to vote and B. not as solidly behind the Dems as is generally thought. There were plenty of comments along the lines of "it's a mystery to me why any Hispanic would not want to grind Trump into paste" and other comments from Hispanics saying "Hey, idiots, I'm Hispanic, I don't like illegals either and I think Trump's great." It would be nice to think that there's a rift forming between the law-abiding citizens of Hispanic descent who hold conservative values and the shiftless ones who want goodies from the government. Actually, it would be more than nice to see Hispanics themselves drive a nail into the theory that is driving Dem open borders policy - the idea that they will vote as a solid D bloc.

1005 Oh yeah, and the second half of the first chapter of the Book of Wisdom is alsopretty prescient:

Beware, then, of whispering, and to ill purpose; ever let your tongues refrain from calumny. Think not that the secret word goes for nought; lying lips were ever the soul's destroying. Death for its goal, is not life's aim missed? Labours he well, that labours to bring doom about his ears? Death was never of God's fashioning; not for his pleasure does life cease to be; what meant his creation, but that all created things should have being? No breed has he created on earth but for its thriving; none carries in itself the seeds of its own destruction. Think not that mortality bears sway on earth; no end nor term is fixed to a life well lived . . . It is the wicked that have brought death on themselves, by word and deed of their own; court death, and melt away in its embrace, keep tryst with it, and lay claim to its partnership.

1021 WeirdDave, Prvi Partisan makes very nice .303, but you are right it is not the 90's when I could pick up crates of .303 and shoot myself into a minor concussion (ah, the fun days!)

The French rifle is the Mas 1936 with that odd forward canted bolt handle, 7.5 French. If you got real money you can find the paratrooper model with the folding butstock, Mas 1936 CR39. (I have seen one for sale ever)
There are the M1949/56 auto loaders, and those have a uniquely French feel to them also, and are fun to shoot.

French rifles have a odd feeling to them. The pre-WWI Lebel is an elegant rifle that was clearly finished by a design bureau steeped in Belle Arts that valued the sleek lines and French manufacturing and a giant bayonet over having more than 3 shots in an en-block clip

The Mas 1936 is over manufactured with a bolt handle that makes you bark your knuckles on the rear sight ever time you work the bolt, and an over-engineered, but cute, spike bayonet. It is very machined and it is kind of slab sided receiver.

The M49/56 rifle looks like a celebration of post-war French industry, and possibly like something that H. Beam Piper would have designed as part of the Terro-Human series.

Italian guns are prettier, and you have a wider variety to choose from. French guns have a fell all their own.

I read it. Mostly because I wondered about the hype.

It was a crap read. Poorly written, it never explains how things get to be the way they are, nor does it resolve any of them. It is, in a word, unbelievable.

It reads like the fever dream of some dried-up old biddy who secretly harbors the need to be raped, as if that would be the sort of attention she thinks she wants. She is wrong.

It is certainly not worth all the hype.

The life expectancy of African-American males is not so great. I wish him a long life but the numbers may not be so great for him.

IIRC, something like five years less then the melanin challenged.

Here's a quick search result:

Women are expected to live to be about 79.4 years old while men are only expected to live for about 73.6 years. The life expectancy for African Americans is also quite different. African American men have a life expectancy of about 67.2 years while African American women have an average life expectancy of about 74.7 years.

1106 OK, this is weird. I'm getting obsessive crazy stalker emails from, of all the insane places in the world, Djibouti.

This person, a woman apparently, has now sent me three emails. Needless to say, I have never replied to any of them. Here's the latest that just arrived, pasted in here verbatim:

--------

To: zombietime
Subject: Confidential salaah latest al imam mahdi (as) chapter one against malfunction

the story begins when a young boy of 14 to 18 years old rapes his own sister ali and kaltoum of father and mother moussa hassan and hawa hamoud the young boy begins a crime mission for the men of the family and that they commit viols to the muhrram in the family this young man family relationship half-uncle of my grandmother he deserves to be killed at the time crime was made in the city of Djibouti I am the inspector of genetically famillier. here is 1st chapter

I need the best from your collaboration.

--------

Not exactly sure what it means. If I were to wager a guess, I'd say that this woman was raped by her brother at their family's insistence, and now she wants to kill him, and she wants me to help her publish a book about all this.

Moral of this comment: Don't become famous on the Internet. There are all sorts of people out there who will glom on to you. Sheesh.

The thing about individual life expectancy (LE) is that it changes over time. If you see that ____ group has a LE of __ years, that is from birth. There are additional charts which show your LE once you hit a certain year of age.

So, some group with a LE of say 67.2 years... once the individual has hit that age, may discover that achieving another decade or so is easily accomplished.

Life insurance companies make a lot of money exploiting this knowledge.

63 There was a link someone posted recently (probably here, though I don't recall) that noted that an awful lot of time passed between when Plato wrote "The Republic", and when the earliest copy existing today was made. This was contrasted with the Four Gospels, and the link noted that considerably less time had passed there.

The takeaway from that was that people question whether the Four Gospels are legitimate, in part due to the gap between when they were written, and when the earliest still-existing copies were written. But no one questions whether "The Republic" was a forgery, even though there's a much, much bigger time leap involved there.

That's what this idiot's tweet brings to mind.

In any case, looking to the Four Gospels for insight into that period of time is of limited value. But there are plenty of secular sources from the era - such as Josephus - that answer the needed questions. And any historian of the era with an ounce of sense would easily school this idiot.

120 95 Doubt McKaskill's vote is a sign of confidence. I'd say exactly the opposite. Extremely, extremely unlikely she's feeling so confident that she can just vote freely on yuuuuge hot-button issues. That would imply a large expanding polling advantage - which is not only not apparently the case for public stuff, but just implausible given all the collateral contextual facts.

I'm seeing it as a hail mary move - attempt to generate every last "base" vote in the hope that's enough to overcome her deficit against GOP and indies.

Some of it is just HS girl internet drama.

Basically, Jim/Metokur/Antibully is mocking Sargon for taking himself too seriously. Sargon was invited to speak to the EU Parliment by UKIP or some such, about the new internet filtering that's being demanded. It didn't work, obviously, and Jim posted some teasing taunts about Sargon and his ill-fitting suit.

Sargon, who apparently is thin-skinned, has been nursing a grudge against Jim for a while for his teasing and released a long video taunting Jim in return.

So then Jim put out another video and livestream, taunting Sargon some more....


It's just internet drama. It's about personalities, not anything of substance.

220 You cannot deny the parallels, though, between people who were willing to testify under torture, and threat of death, with those unwilling to fly to DC. Exactly alike.

On threats, Garaghty made a good point. EVERYONE who is at all visible in politics gets these threats. He cited himself as someone who is minimally notable; he gets them too.

That's additional to the question of whether these threats ever were made. I recall the Peterson-Newman show's aftermath, when she claimed she had gotten such threats. It came out that all she got was stuff like "Dumb bitch". Of course, if you're a full fledged snowflake, that makes you feel unsafe or something. Just like a rape.

It's somewhat remote and permissive, I guess - but I've always wondered how Lebanese and Iranian Shi'a terrorists mix in and get along in that completely different environment. Probably just the organized-crime base of the area is their substrate.

My story about that (cue Al Bundy flashback music) I'm 17, no girlfriend at the time, typical weekend party. Hook-up with a classmate I was always friendly with but never thought of romantically.

Well night goes on, we're getting friendlier (and drunker, of course) and we start making out. Move to a "private" room. About 5-minutes in I to reach for some boobage (which were, must be said, spectacular) to have my hand pushed-back down into my lap.

Five minutes later she reaches down, grabs my hand and places it on that same boob.

The rest of the night went about as you would expect from there.

You said "I think Whelan's tweets were ranging shots. I think that was the message being transmitted - we know who the other person there was.

That woman probably has the hard evidence or testimony."

Do you think that Whelan would do this and not just name names? He dragged another person's name through the mud to try and make some retarded point about "it might not be Kavanaugh" with no evidence at all. He is an attention whore. Dropping the twats name would get him mucho visibility, something attention whores live for. And what testimony or hard evidence do you think this girl would have? You realize that "hard evidence" is a fact (or facts) that can be proved. What do you think she's got besides "I did see it" or "I didn't see it". No proof either way, although it would screw Saint Ford over in the court of public opinion.

379 While wasting some time today I looked at the negative (Amazon one-star) reviews of Fred Brook's "Mythical Man Month". Ignoring the one honest one, the three duplicates, and the one that didn't seem to realize the book is about software, not building pyramids, the "reviews" were more rants exposing the ignorance of the reviewers.

"The technology was old" -- because Brooks was there and doing that in the 1960s. But he was writing about people, and the people haven't changed.

"It was too religious!" -- seriously. He used a couple Biblical references and made an aside comment about the traditional view of marriage. Most of the references fall more into the realm of "western civilization cultural references" -- like the Tower of Babel. If you don't get them, the problem isn't his religion, but your ignorance. If his view of marriage bothers you, well, toughen up buttercup, because he's not unique and some of the vibrant cultured foreigners you're importing make him look like a radical feminist.

"SEXIST!!!" -- He was writing between 1965 and 1975, revisiting the book around 1995. He didn't follow the fetishes of the 2010s.

The most sexist thing he wrote? "You can get nine women pregnant, but they won't have a baby in a month."

*sigh*

There has never been a group of more callow, childish people than the SJWs.

393 @317 - I don't think Whelan's tweets were a mistake, I don't think he was attention whoring. I think they were deliberate and had a purpose. Kavanaugh, Judge, and Garrett were on the football team together and are presumably friends. Whelan is friends with Kavanaugh. I think that he would know that a backfire of a internet detective theory would be a negative, especially after promising a refutation. I don't know the guy, so I could be completely wrong.

But Whelan telegraphed that the 5th person at the party was known. And if that person is not being contacted and promoted as a corroborating witness by Ford - she is probably being contacted by the WH team.

What kinds of information could be a complete refutation? Maybe identifying the house? And the date? What if she had pictures from the party? It wasn't a time when everyone always had cameras, but the yearbook photos showed that pictures were taken at parties....

This is all conjecture of course. Whelan might have been drunker than Cooter Brown and tweeting out of his ass.

He got investigated after he was caught handing a page of numbers to one of his grad student peons and telling her that there had to be something useful to be gotten out of the numbers. A big no no in stats, it messes up validity.

The kicker was that he was the guy whose "science" underlay Michelle Obama's school lunch program.

439 One of the lessons that I teach when dealing with law is that if someone goes above and beyond to give additional procedural rights that are not called for, they generally win at the higher court and the court of public opinion. Grassley and to some extent other Republicans are killing Ford with kindness.

As a result, it ain't playing the way that Dems thought it would (CNN focus group for example). It is possible that the Monday hearing might move things one way or another if she appears credible but I would say that the odds are you have Justice Kavanaugh next week.

If Kavanaugh is approved, the FISA information breaks, etc. things are going to be interesting at election time. With the new early voting, stuff will break earlier in the cycle--for the Dems, Mueller has to come through early as they rely heavily on early voting. Trump though has proven to be able to break their media coverage and really all the Dems have to present the voters is they hate Trump and you should too. Difficult to run on (see Republicans in 9 and it is killing some of their policy ideas that could have given them some traction with independent voters.

The fire was at 5th and L, and the first Marines to help came from a building that is part of MBWDC and located directly across the street. That building was used for triage and as a temporary shelter/reunification location. Of the residents, there were only four minor injuries.

488 Speaking of the Book of Wisdom, the opening is pretty damn apropos:

Listen, all you who are judges here on earth. Learn to love justice; learn to think high thoughts of what God is, and with sincere hearts aspire to him. Trust him thou must, if find him thou wouldst; he does not reveal himself to one that challenges his power. Man's truant thoughts may keep God at a distance, but when the test of strength comes, folly is shewn in its true colours; never yet did wisdom find her way into the schemer's heart, never yet made her home in a life mortgaged to sin. A holy thing it is, the spirit that brings instruction; how it shrinks away from the touch of falsehood, holds aloof from every rash design! It is a touchstone, to betray the neighbourhood of wrong-doing. A good friend to man is this spirit of wisdom, that convicts the blasphemer of his wild words; God can witness his secret thoughts, can read his heart unerringly, and shall his utterance go unheard? No, the spirit of the Lord fills the whole world; bond that holds all things in being, it takes cognisance of every sound we utter; how should ill speech go unmarked, or the scrutiny of justice pass it by? The hidden counsel of the godless will all come to light; no word of it but reaches the divine hearing, and betrays their wicked design; that jealous ear is still listening, and all their busy murmuring shall stand revealed.

The ship was passing Oahu's West coast going North/Northwest going towards Kauai when I notices an USN ship designated "Torpedo Retriever" about 5 KnM to the East between the ship and Oahu.

So far Ms. Ford has--Ms. Ford to "testitfy" about where she was 36 years ago.

Now Brandon, where were you on say June 15, 1982. Were you at home, or were you traveling? What city, what state? What did you do? Who did you talk to? Who saw you. If you were single and dating, who did you take out that night? Where did you go? What did she eat? When you took her somewhere at the end of the evening, did you go to her place or to yours? What did the two of you have to drink? Did you read Methodist hymns or did you jump her bones? If you didn't go all the way, how far did you get?

Ford counsel to Judiciary Cmte: Your cavalier treatment of a sexual assault survivor who has been doing her best to cooperate with the Cmte is completely inappropriate. Yesterday, we had what I thought was a productive dialogue about the conditions..Ford would find acceptable

Ford counsel to Judiciary Cmte GOP: It is now abundantly clear that regardless of the assurances Senator Grassley has made, you have been tasked with pressuring Dr. Ford to agree to conditions you find advantageous to the nominee

Ford counsel to Judiciary Cmte GOP: In an email sent today at 4:01 p.m., I advised you that..Ford had traveled to meet with the FBI..about..death threats she had been receiving & we would need until tomorrow to confer w/her & to be able to provide you w/a well-considered response

Ford counsel to Judiciary Cmte GOP: Rather than allowing her the time she needs to respond to the take-it-or-leave-it demand.:you sent us an email at 5:47 pm - which you again gave to the media first -
insisting that we accept your "invitation" for a Wed hrng by 10:00 pm tonight

Ford counsel to Judiciary Cmte: The 10:00 p.m. deadline is arbitrary. Its sole purpose is to bully Dr. Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family

Ford counsel to Judiciary Cmte: She has already been forced out of her home and continues to be subjected to harassment, hate mail, and death threats. Our modest request is that she be given an additional day to make her decision.

623 I think it's clear at this point that the Dems don't want her to testify. If they thought her testimony would kill the nomination, they would have jumped at the chance to get her out there. They're not even allowing sympathetic media interview her!
They simply want to delay it and look kinda good doing it.
The Repubs, on the other hand, seem VERY interested in her testimony. Another clue that her story has major issues.
At this point, I trust Grassly to do the right thing.

I put up HardiBoard elsewhere on the house, as one-piece sheathing/siding. The gable ends are well under the roof overhang, and have 1/2" OSB on the studs already. So these siding boards are strictly to make-pretty. I probably won't use actual butt joints, but cut the ends of the boards at complementary 45 degree angles; so scarf joints, I guess.

Grassley: The Drop-Dead Deadline is 10PM Tonight. If We Don't Get a "Yes," We Vote on Monday.

Democrats: "Show some heart. Wait until Dr. Ford feels that she can come before the committee."

I mean, she's only had Thirty Six Fucking Years to process this traumatic event that almost certainly didn't happen.



Mitch McConnell says: We'll get right on that, sister.



Reminds me of a movie I saw once.

Grassley just extanded the deadline for the delicate Ms. Ford to accept the request to testify -- but attached an ultimatum to it.

It's a drop-dead deadline:

@ChadPergram 32m

Grassley: I'm extending the deadline for response yet again to 10 o'clock this evening. I'm providing a notice of a vote to occur Monday in the event that Dr. Ford's attorneys don't respond or Dr. Ford decides not to testify.

How much time must elapse before the Cucked-Out, Tucked-Under Enforcers of Twitter Consensus Opinion feel comfortable saying that this woman seems to be playing games and seems to be very, very reluctant to have her claims questioned?

Truth is protector. And people feel vulnerable without it.

61 It's been a problem for years, but I remain astonished that the GOP - even on this rare occasion when they've decided they're not going to be deterred or manipulated, they're going to get their victory - STILL have zero PR-fu.


Grassley has been far more accommodating than he should have - but just the right amount to deny the Dems any traction with their dishonest and despicable "have a heart" crap.


But the GOP needs other voices to bring the muscle. Grassley stays above it all, but others need to be ruthlessly shaming and confronting the stupid Dem talking-point machines, including ChiFi.


The bad-faith, violation of committee procedures, and despicable dishonesty of the Dems the last week has been jaw-dropping. But only those following it even know about them.


The Dems are very vulnerable to damage from this stunt, but a lot of that won't be realized without some actual offense from the GOP types.

97 Maybe out of all the potential Kavanaugh accusers vetted by the Soros-funded lefty activist group behind this, she didn't step forward. Everyone else stepped back. She was recruited and now she has cold feet because she was promised by her handlers it would never come to this.

This is such a farce. We are governed by mediocrities of the first order. This is all such a transparent theater.

ALL of the Democrats will vote against Kavanaugh, regardless of the existence of this whole Ford sideshow.

There are 2-3 GOP Senators, and we all know who they are, that do or pretend to treat the theater as real. With Grassley's 10pm deadline now issued, it would appear that even Jeff Flake is now ready to rip of the veil of pretense and just power this through.

Not a single Senator will vote differently now vs. before anyone (supposedly) knew about Christie Ford. The only remaining question is whether this entire affair marks the low point of Senate Judicial Confirmations, or whether the Dems can dig even lower. Given that the next likely Justice to leave the court has a name that rhymes with Loof FinsGaurg, we can confidently conclude that the Progressives are only still in first gear. The Progressives are repulsive. This confirmation is an unmitigated disgrace

415 Y5, that's sort of what I've been whining about - the Dems are far, far beyond the line of being ridiculous, but GOP will not confront them and humiliate them. It's as though "race" were involved.


Cat Ass Trophy, not kidding, earlier this week the Ford camp claimed their non-responsiveness to some Judiciary Comm. messages was due to email complications related to Yom Kippur. Again, not making that up.


THIS is how obviously unserious they are. And yet they are not savaged by surrogates.

If the Dems don't have this to flog for the midterms then they will need
to quickly drum up an emotional hot button issue to get out the voters.
So what's a quick one?? Race, cop brutality, Nazis? I suppose Nazis is
good because it will encourage vote suppression too. Then again, Nazis
seems a little tired these days...

I'm personally wondering about the plausibility of her being there in the first place. Seems she didn't really know anyone at the "gathering" particularly well, and certainly not the host of she can't even recall the house.

And what of the notion of a gaggle of reasonably popular soon-to-be seniors hanging out with... an incoming sophomore who's not dating any of them?

Maybe things were different in rich, suburban MD in 1982, but I can tell you in blue-collar suburban NJ in 1982 that did. not. happen.
