53 I grieve to leave my native land
I grieve to leave my comrades all
And my aging parents whom I've always hold so dear
And the bonny, bonny lass that I do adore

Farewell to Nova Scotia, the sea bound coast
Let your mountains dark and dreary be
For when I'm far away on the briny ocean tossed
Will you ever heave a sigh or a wish for me

The drums they do beat and the wars do alarm
The captain calls, we must obey
So farewell, farewell to Nova Scotia's charms
For it's early in the morning I am far, far away

Farewell to Nova Scotia, the sea bound coast
Let your mountains dark and dreary be
For when I'm far away on the briny ocean tossed
Will you ever heave a sigh or a wish for me

61 Farewell to Tarwathie
Adieu Mormond Hill
And the dear land of Crimmond
I bid you farewell
I'm bound off for Greenland
And ready to sail
In hopes to find riches
In hunting the whale

Farewell to my comrades
For a while we must part
And likewise the dear lass
Who first won my heart
The cold coast of Greenland
My love will not chill
And the longer my absence
More loving she'll feel

Our ship is well rigged
And she's ready to sail
The crew they are anxious
To follow the whale
Where the icebergs do float
And the stormy winds blow
Where the land and the ocean
Is covered with snow

The cold coast of Greenland
Is barren and bare
No see time nor harvest
Is ever known there
And the birds here sing sweetly
In mountain and dale
But there's no bird in Greenland
To sing to the whale

There is no habitation
For a man to live there
And the king of that country
Is the fierce Greenland bear
And there'll be no temptation
To tarry long there
With our ship under full
We will homeward repair

Posted by: Farewell to Tarwathie at November 14, 2018 09:44 AM (CDGwz)

62 I am so impressed with this artist. I had never heard of him but will do some research. The way he captured the texture and color of the ocean water, the cold mist gradually obscuring the land in the distance, the weathered look of the islet is all realistic without being photographic and conveys the feel of the time and place. The sailing ship in the background must have been a damn cold place to serve.

I've seen a few of his other paintings now and they share the sense of atmosphere that today's example shows. And that he accomplished some of this with watercolors is even more remarkable.

Thanks, CBD. Learning of new-to-me art and artists makes these threads so valuable.

113 Well, the shit is officially hitting the California fan this morning. PGE has disclosed today it may have some responsibility for the initial start of the "Camp" fire that has burned over much of Cali and killed some large number of people.


In anticipation of claims the company has drawn down all it's bank lines and alerted its insurers. Companies do these things when they are getting ready to weather financial storms that could kill them. California won't permit new power plants to be built and has significant restrictions on power infrastructure in place, and now looks like they may have to execute their largest power utility. The next few years could see some ....ahem.... "disruption" in the supply of electricity to the state. Like in Venezuela or other countries the President might describe as shitholes .

116 As long as we are on songs:
Oh In eighteen-hundred and-forty-four
Of March the eighteenth day
We hoisted our colours to the top of the mast
And for Greenland bore away, brave boys
And for Greenland bore away

The lookout on the mainmast he stood
His spyglass in his hand
"There's a whale, there's a whale, there's a whalefish" he cried
"And she blows at every span, brave boys
And she blows at every span"

The captain stood on the quarter deck
The ice was in his eye
"Overhaul, overhaul, let your jib sheets fall
And go put your boats to sea, brave boys
And go put your boats to sea"

The boats were lowered and the men aboard
The whale was full at view
Resolved, resolved was each whalerman bold
For to steer where the whalefish blew, brave boys
For to steer where the whalefish blew

The harpoon struck and the line paid out
With a single flourish of his tail
He capsized our boat and we lost five men
And we did not catch that whale, brave boys
And we did not catch that whale

The losin' of those five jolly men
It grieved out captain sore
But the losin' of that sperm whale fish
Now it grieved him ten times more, brave boys
Now it grieved him ten times more

"Up anchor now" our captain he cried
"For the winter stars do appear
And it's time that we left this cold country
And for the England we will steer, brave boys
And for the England we will steer"

Well, Greenland is a barren land
A land that bears no green
Where there's ice and snow and the whalefishes blow
And the daylight's seldom seen, brave boys
And the daylight's seldom seen

She went down last October in a pouring driving rain
The skipper, he'd been drinking and the Mate, he felt no pain
Too close to Three Mile Rock, and she was dealt her mortal blow
And the Mary Ellen Carter settled low
There were five of us aboard her when she finally was awash
We'd worked like hell to save her, all heedless of the cost
And the groan she gave as she went down, it caused us to proclaim
That the Mary Ellen Carter would rise again

On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.

A fortress deep and mighty,
That none may penetrate.

276 I like this Kipling one too:

Four-Feet

("THE WOMAN IN HIS LIFE")

"I have done mostly what most men do,
And pushed it out of my mind;
But I can't forget, if I wanted to,
Four-Feet trotting behind.

Day after day, the whole day through --
Wherever my road inclined --
Four-feet said, "I am coming with you!"
And trotted along behind.

Now I must go by some other round, --
Which I shall never find --
Somewhere that does not carry the sound
Of Four-Feet trotting behind."

That is certainly evident. But there is also a psychological element at play that causes them to *accept* any results that confirm their bias, without critical examination.

The Fleischmann-Pons and Wolfe-Simon fiascoes are examples. The Sokal Affair was an indicator of how eager some communities are to seek/accept confirmation bias without any thought or examination at all.

There is nothing wrong with out electrical grid other than some parts of the country don't want any of it near their property. They believe in magic. CA and the NE do have a severe problem though. Anytime it gets abnormally hot or cold their wires are overloaded because they have to import so much electricity from other parts of the country.

I told this story the other day. SF had an article about a 65 year old woman who was wakened in her trailer outside Paradise by her smoke alarms going off. She grabbed her three small dogs and got into her car, started driving out of the area until she came to a tree down across the road. She got out , left the dogs in the car and ran down an embankment and got into a stream, where there were two other people sitting. She said she had to keep dipping her hair under so embers falling wouldn't catch her hair on fire. She was sure she was going to die. When the fire passed , and fireman arrived, they fished the three of them out of the stream. Her dogs survived in her car and she is now in a shelter with her dogs and her pajamas, which is all she has left.

This fire was so wind driven that there was virtually no warning.

France, Poland and Britain are the only formidable armies in Europe. The rest are fragmented, rag-tag and remnants of the Warsaw Pact or (like Italy) fashionably military with no real purpose.

Um, the fire has burned a small segment of east of Redding CA. Not" much of CA." And PG E already said earlier this week that it had received a notice of shorting, indicating a possible downed wire in the area prior to the fire.


This is how a lot of these wildfires start, is from winds blowing trees down into power lines or power lines being downed. They spark and then the fire starts.

The Morning Report - 11/14/18

PelLoop.jpg

Good morning kids. Midweek and the big story continues to be the hostage situation in Florida (and perhaps Georgia as well) with the attempted theft of another Senate seat and governorship. And yes, I do mean to imply that, however piss-poor a campaign and candidate Martha McSally was, the evidence strongly suggests the Democrats stole that election as well (and there's also the last minute shit-ton of ballots up in Milwaukee that torpedoed Scott Walker and Leah Vukmir,, shenanigans out in LA and quite a number of other races all over that are ripe for the swiping but if I keep going with more examples, we'll be here all day).

As I have mentioned both here and various threads ever since last week, and even before all this, after 2016 and what has so far been an incredibly successful first two years of the first Trump administration, the Democrats are going to go all out and attempt to steal not only Florida but every single swing state and district they can come 2020. Matt Gaetz echoes my sentiments openly in a link below, and of that I have absolutely no doubt. Aside from the filthy, banana republic nature of this, the Democrat-Left-Media complex is continuing the mass propaganda/big lie that started with George W. Bush in 2000, to wit, that whenever Democrats win elections it's the will of the people, but whenever Republicans win, they did it be disenfranchising the typical "victims," subverted Democracy and stole it. Of all the projections the Left smears us with, this one is particularly disgusting. It also prepares the battle-space, if you will, of the next Democrat propaganda meme; that since the electoral college is a sham meant that enables the white male conservative patriarchy to maintain overlord status over people of color, women etc. etc. (translation: it prevents the Upper West Side and Santa Monica from determining who wins the Presidency), not only must it be abolished but in point of fact, elections themselves must be abolished if we are to achieve true social justice. For the people. We laugh at idiots like Loopy-Ocasio Fiasco at our peril. More on her in a moment. In any case, all the latest links from Palm Beach, Broward and elsewhere dealing with this crap. One in particular shows a very interesting/alarming link about the attempt to steal the election and the hidden gun control agenda. Meh, with Gillum-'n-chill 'em, it's out in the open.

And that brings us to politics where the internecine struggle within the Democrat party is more and more visible. The aforementioned buck-toothed-Bolshevik came down to DC to join in some sort of youth protest outside of Nancy Palsi's office about global warming or something. The salient point is freshmen congressmen are not supposed to do this, especially to a party leader who has been in office for decades. You go where you're kicked or you get buried for two years and then dumped. Evidently Loopy and the other Young Turks Jerks didn't get the message. Despite the destruction the Democrats have wrought since the founding of the nation, and especially over the past 50 years - including the creation of a massive propaganda/brainwashing machine that created these little monsters in the first place - evidently it's neither fast nor thorough enough and so it's time for a purge. If Palsi and company survive this, no doubt the new generation will be seething and embittered, as they were after Hillary and the DNC stole the nomination from that other paragon of youth and vigor Bernie Sanders. And, as an aside, our two-tiered justice system has cleared his wife Jane of all corruption and fraud charges related to her fraud and corruption as a dean of some defunct propaganda mill up in Vermont. Thank goodness, as I was worried that our criminal justice system wouldn't work as it should (*pukes*). Backtracking, if the Young Pioneers manage to wrest control of the Democrat Party in toto, then it will be bust-out in-your-face anti-American socialism 25/8/366 in all 57 states thus guaranteeing their relegation to the political wilderness for the next 40 years. Or will it? Despite the coming of Trump and all the incredible things that came with it, the one thing that we do not control is the brainwashing complex that is academia. Along with the attempt to replace the American population with a permanent underclass of third world, non-English speaking peasantry who know nothing and perhaps care to know nothing of the nation to which they have been allowed to enter (other than where to go to claim their birthright to your money), we have at least two if not three generations of young people who have been lied to about this nation and what it stands for and have been taught to hate it with every fiber of their being. When you see Kyrsten Cinema, Andrew Gillum, Loopy Ocasio-Fiasco, and far too many others, you are staring into the face of America's future. I'm pushing 59 and my time on this rock is ticking away faster and faster. When to even attempt to communicate with young people gets you tagged as a racist, sexist, bigoted, Islamophobic homophobe whose opinions are hate speech, then the outlook is seriously in doubt. Still, here we are, and yet we persist. There's no way to predict the future and I don't believe in inevitability. And for Trump to have been elected defies the odds and perhaps indicates some sort of sea change going on that we just are not aware of, mostly because of who controls the media and the messages. With that, keep hope alive and to be sure take back the damn schools. Anyway, lots of links about the potential Democrat civil war and some negative portents about the GOP going forward.

Moving on to first amendment and fake news news, little Ben Shapiro got protested at Ohio State, even Bob Woodward calls the CNN/JmJ Acosta suit a farce, a man is kicked out of a Disney World ride for the unspeakable crime of having a Trump 2020 sign and Daniel Greenfield on the nature of why the press hates PDT.

On the Amnesty/Invasion front, the first waves of the invaders are evidently at or very near the border now, and as that catastrophe develops, the triple murderer in Missouri who had "sanctuary" in Jersey got here under DACA, even a CNN exit poll shows overwhelming support for Trump's border policies and how the invasion presents an opportunity for the President.

In gun news, a massive spike in permit applications in DC since the laws have been relaxed and a piece cautioning about how junk science can be used to quash your gun rights.

Internationally, as war seems to be brewing in the Middle East, Democrat leader Sarsour the Hamas Louse blasts Israel for not just dying already, a potential showdown between PDT and Xi at the G-20, Macron's threat to form an army is a joke, Austria not too thrilled with the EU and PDT rejects the news about NorK deception on its nuke sites as fake news. Meanwhile, as if we didn't know that the UK now means "unmistakably Koranic," Italy has stepped up to the plate to offer Asia Bibi asylum from the medieval animals in Pakistain.

Domestically, more on the First Lady's open call for the ouster of a top NSC official, the President has tapped Neomi Rao to fill Brett Kavanaugh's seat on the DC Circuit (perhaps a dark horse [no pun] for the next SCOTUS vacancy?), thoughts on the national debt and paying it down, a custody dispute could be a motive in the slaying of 8 Ohioans, Congress is about to push this crime bill that looks to be a disaster as well as - yay bipartisanship! - yet another Obamacare "fix" which no doubt fixes nothing but high costs and other assorted tyranny in stone.

In Lysenkoism, Moonbeam is taking heat for vetoing a bill that could have helped mitigate the deadly destruction of this Camp wildfire, Obama was spectacularly wrong about energy policy (if he was right, it would've ruined his streak), and a cautionary tale of hijacking science for political ends. You know who else did that?

From hither and yon, Stan, Spike, Barbara, Shelia who can tell the difference? An excellent piece about Democrat-Socialist Jim Jones, a Dutch man uses transgender logic to identify as a 29-year-old and lastly Orson Welles' lost masterpiece makes its debut.

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

29 The reality is that crooked elections make the case FOR the electoral college. Without it, we'd have to stick our noses into the sewer that is NYC (among other places). As it is, we know the Dems get those electoral votes anyway, so we can live with it. We can concentrate our efforts, feeble as they are, on other states that matter. It also means that the Dems have to spread out their corruption, inefficiently.

None of this is to say that we shouldn't start investigating and prosecuting election fraud in the places we can't win. I think we should. I haven't lived there in decades, but it would shock me if NY has changed that much. And if not, the fraud will be so blatant as to make Broward and Palm Beach look subtle. It should be absurdly easy to find. Repeat in every big NE and West coast city, and of course, Chicago.

A few successful prosecutions would, I think, make future ones easier. It'd be tougher for the Pravda media to cover up and excuse, and would open many people's eyes.

59 Morning, 'rons and 'ronettes. Got a couple of links today, so will break them down into two posts.

Today is the birthday of actress Seena Owen, born in Spokane to Danish parents.

https://tinyurl.com/y92crebg

In the early 'teens, she made her way out to Hollywood and ran into a fellow Spokanean, director Marshall Neilan, who hired her for the Kalem studio at a salary of $15 a week.

Orginally born "Signe Auen," Owen was asked to change her name for professional use and so altered it to reflect the pronunciation of her birth name. During the 'teens and "twenties, she was a regular, well-regarded actress, appearing in films for directors like D.W. Griffith and Maurice Tourneur as well as starring alongside Lon Chaney and Frederic Marsh.

To silent fans, she's best known as the insane Queen Regina XIII of Kronberg in Erich von Stroheim's unfinished tale of debauchery, Queen Kelly,* whipping convent student Gloria Swanson through the halls of her castle.

Owen did not have the strongest of voices, and so with the advent of sound, she turned her talents to screenwriting, including in her work two Dorothy Lamour films.

She died in 1966.

*and the story of Kelly, which was never released in America, is one for another day.

137 Greenfield: The Media Hates Trump Because It Hates Free Speech

That's a terrific article. This passage really caught my eye:

Obama's obsession with controlling the media quickly turned thuggish. Reporters were spied on and prosecuted. Those who wrote unfavorable stories were subjected to public attacks and harassment by their colleagues. In the Trump era, reporters might be ridiculed by a pro-Trump audience or insulted by Trump, without fearing criminal prosecution, eavesdropping or targeted attacks aimed at their career.

We need more about this. MRC does some, but not enough. I cited the tape Klavan recently aired. There were also many clips - which should be gathered into a compilation - of talking heads agonizing over a reporter being "disrespectful" for asking a tough question.

All that is true, and more. But I think there's another contributing cause of the press's disaffection for Trump, independent of ideology and partisanship, real as those are. That is the fact that Trump is so damned unpredictable, the very opposite of a garden variety pol.

Since the press is overwhelmingly staffed by stupid and lazy jerks, they really don't like having to do a little work. Their instinct is to impose, on whatever happens, their prefab reactions. And that doesn't work very well now. You can see this in the absurdity of their claims. Ivanka's father is an anti-semite? Yeah, sure. But they have to say it; to do otherwise they'd have to think. And we can't have that.

Encountered panhandlers on every corner of Madison from 56th to 49th. Place is sliding back to pre-Rudy days. Sad.

But the 47 percent of citizens who don't pay federal income taxes don't get see any advantage to lower Federal Income Taxes. Many of those same people don't want a job, so they don't care that they can get a good-paying job if they really wanted one. And no one under 30 or 40 has any memory of the hot Cold War and have been educated to believe the US military is an imperialist force for bad, so don't care if we have a strong national security situation and likely prefer we don't (more Gov't cheese and handouts available for them).

170 85 49. and it took the Law over a year to figure that out?
_________________

Took them 2 years to make the arrests. They probably knew pretty early on in the investigation who the likely suspects were. The killers had apparently tried to stage the crime scene to make it look like a rival drug gang hit (execution shots to the head, scattered money over one victim, etc.).

But two of the victims had been badly beaten in addition to being shot, so it appeared there was some personal animosity involved. Also, the killers seemed to be familiar with the layout of the property and the set-up of the surveillance cameras and other security features (it was a marijuana-growing operation, and there were multiple buildings on the site), so that suggested that the killers had spent some time on the property at some point, and weren't strangers to the family.

The cops didn't reveal many details yesterday, but they did say that the suspects had been watching the victims for quite a while prior to the killings, to familiarize themselves with their routines. They also erased some of the evidence on the surveillance cameras, computers, etc., after the killings, to cover their tracks. It was apparently a well-planned operation that the killers had put a lot of time and effort into.

I don't know what kind or quality of forensic evidence the cops have, but it does take time to build a case in a circumstance like this. Hopefully they have enough to get convictions.

The graft on the inside also buys our FBI, so they frame Trump and excuse the ChiefGrifter and subversive Hillary, even as China/Russia populates the coasts with their government spies posing as businessmen. And most underhanded, our GOPe and AGs go on stand down mode, out of fear of investigation/Arkancide, or because they are globalists, themselves on the take.


Indeed the battle is ongoing, but we gave them a 50 (100?) year head start, and this adventure in Liberty is not guaranteed by mere words on paper (plus even Orwell didn't imagine the digital age of censorship). Whitaker better not be advised that "you must recuse" ... or it gets even more grim.

202 164 I assume that the governments of VA and NY are going to lose money on the Amazon move. It's the Sports Venue writ large.

Only if you use Hollywood Accounting.

Cities make money in lots of ways. 50k jobs and the people that come along with that 50k.

Property Values will go up. Thus so will property taxes.

Then a host of other things cities collect on: sales, fines, permits and that sweet federal and state money for students entering into the government school system.

Those 100k+ people will need their clothes cleaned, someone to make their beds, feed their pets and provide them with avocado toast. Do you think these people aren't going to be buying Starbucks coffee or going to Trader Joes? The infrastructure will need expanding so there are plenty of new union gigs and increased wages to get that moving along.

Guess what? Those new businesses and those business expansions cost real money to build and they also will be paying income, sales, property taxes, fees, fines and other things.

And I suspect a huge reason why NYC and DC was chosen was for expanding Amazon's web services. Those consultants will be working with what is expected to be growing enterprises that will be using the cloud. Should look at that too.

Each of those areas will also probably pick up a Democrat Representative too a couple censuses later.

And most important of all:

In the meantime, there will be all kinds of graft and bribes going on to get anything done in those cities. You are overlooking the immense new power and flow of cash to the politicians, aldermen, union leaders, the mob, etc. so really, in the end, no matter how much it costs you when it comes to this. It was never about you, it was about them.

I thought so too, so I looked at the election results page for Maricopa County, which is where Sinema earned her entire win margin. All of it.

Those ballots had other races on them, though, and the voters voted Republican for Governor, state AG, Congress and other races, but Democrat for Senate. It appears to me they just didn't much want to vote for McSally.

The article's a bit more ambivalent than its title. It also notes that conservatives disgruntled that McSally, the establishment candidate, won the primary also supported Sinema. If this is a RINO purge (rather than RINO revenge) then it may be a prelude to a good 2020, although unfortunately we'll be stuck with Sinema for another 6 years.

__________________

The problem (or one of them anyway) is that the mail-in ballots are so easy to cheat with, and many states are using them now.

In AZ, something like 60 -70% of the population typically votes with a mail-in ballot. If you have access to voter lists and can see which registered voters typically don't vote (or don't vote in off-year elections, etc.), then all you have to do is copy the ballots printed for them, forge their signatures (which are on file with the state) on their ballots and mail them in. So who has access to that info? Lots of people, which means it can be stolen, purchased, etc., by crooks who want to increase a particular candidate's numbers.

One would think that "found ballots" in those numbers would have an impact on down-ticket races as well, but we never hear of those being called into question.

It's *almost* like the whole "found ballot" thing is a little bit hinky.


You haven't even been introduced to "Hinky".

With the "D"s looking to make a return in full force in 2020, forget a meaningful vote ever again.

Their rhetoric and actions to date have been like an artillery advance on the enemy, pounding the ground to soften us up for the real invasion.

The real invasion is to do to the election process the same thing they did to climate change and the census.

Remember when the government/enemedia used computer simulations to count the dead caused by Trump's hurricane in PR? They didn't count anything, they used statistical information and a bunch of assumptions to provide a body count.

Also remember how the Ds and the enemedia believed the exit polls instead of the actual election results in the past few elections.

Back in 2000, the "hanging chad" and the whole concept of "intended vote" where the D counters conjured up their inner-mind-readers and through clairvoyance retroactively "knew" who the voter actually wanted into a given office.

That is the future of your elections. Because of all of the shenanigans, crimes, "unfairness of the electoral college", "every vote must count" the huge expense and delays, I fully expect that Election Day will disappear replaced by computer modeling and Artificial Intelligence.

You won't vote, the dead won't vote and the illegal alien won't vote - the computer will vote based on models and assumptions.

One thought, as some have expressed, is that (for a variety of reasons) it's too late.

OTOH, perhaps the blatantness of what's going on now will wake up more of the 'normies'. I'll be watching what happens here in Texas with the response that Gov. Abbott has promised as a bellwether on that.

Perhaps the most useful action an individual can do is sign up to be a poll watcher. And pray.

________________

I get AZ conservatives' frustration with McSally as the pick. She was my congresswoman for two terms, and I was as frustrated with her as anybody. But despite my disappointment that she won the primary, I voted for her in the general, because we need senate votes to get Trump's conservative judges confirmed, and voting for Sinema (who will consistently vote against Trump's picks) as a protest was just stupid and self-defeating.

But I also don't believe that there were enough cross-over votes to give Sinema the win. I believe there was plenty of Dim cheating too, mainly in the Dim-run Maricopa County system.

In print, I might not consider the 2nd and 3rd paragraphs in JJ's report to be dauntingly long, but on-screen, they just look like Wall o'Text to me. Frequently the case.

And, topically, these paragraphs can be broken up.

Maybe it's my attention deficit, but it's also the nature of the display - on the big screen, the column is pretty wide.

But, if you're too tired from all that research and writing to hit that return key that often, I'll understand.

Thanks for all the Reporting anyway!!

Federal elections are a national holiday.
No provisional ballots.
Voters must have ID and IDs should be free if poverty is proven.No state can post results, official or unofficial, until all their polls have closed.Votes are continually counted throughout the day and results posted no less than an hour after the polls have closed.Ballots will be printed for the amount of registered voters.
When registering, voter ID will be checked against other state databases.Felons may re-apply for voting reinstatement after 10 years of not being not in prison or on parole or probation.
Only active duty military and their dependents may vote absentee.Chain of custody shall be documented.

Nah, brah. No skin in the game, no vote.

If you don't own property, you don't get to vote on anything that would increase property taxes.

If you are not a net taxpayer, you don't get to vote on ANYTHING that would increase ANY tax.

Pookysgirl's Election Reform Proposal:

Federal elections are a national holiday.
No provisional ballots.
Voters
must have ID and IDs should be free if poverty is proven.No state can
post results, official or unofficial, until all their polls have
closed.Votes are continually counted throughout the day and results
posted no less than an hour after the polls have closed.Ballots will be
printed for the amount of registered voters.
When registering, voter
ID will be checked against other state databases.Felons may re-apply
for voting reinstatement after 10 years of not being not in prison or on
parole or probation.
Only active duty military and their dependents may vote absentee.Chain of custody shall be documented.


I
realize that as a Decision Desk reporter, these measures would pretty
much put me out of a job, but our elections are getting ridiculous.

Struck me as a lot, so I called my insurance company to find out if there is a cheaper way to do things. Twenty minutes after I finished yelling at the automated phone menu a human patiently explained to me why life is unfair, so I now can quietly go back to the rest of my day. Happily, I learned $250 is the less expensive option and if I don't shut up they can easily make it $500. So I'm getting a good deal.

Whatever the talking point for each side for today is all they talk about...and it's always negative. They do not cover anything else that is going on in our country or the rest of the world. It's no wonder there is so much hostility and rage these days. It is a constant diet of lies and damn lies. Average people are disgusted by Acosta and friends and deem them irrelevant. The goodness and kindness and success that makes up our American reality also exists but the media can't see it because they are holed up in their agenda/money driven bubble. Unfortunately, the dumbest, most arrogant and simplest are in charge of America's branding. Trump is on a mission to re-brand the US and American's. If he can accomplish this, he/we win and the media loses.

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

As an atheist, I have argued that if religion is erased, something must be put in its place. Belief systems are intrinsic to human intelligence and survival. They “frame” the flux of primary experience, which would otherwise flood the mind. Camille Paglia


Quote II

When someone above the age of young adulthood says that he is searching for himself, it is almost always because he has been behaving badly or has had reversals in life. No one goes off in search of himself whose life is satisfactory. Theodore Dalrymple


Quote III

By picking up the credentials of CNN’s Jim Acosta and booting him out of the White House, Trump has set a good precedent.

Freedom of the press does not mean guaranteed immunity of the press from the same kind of abuse the press directs at the president.Patrick J. Buchanan

Is it paranoia if they are out to get you?

A journalist who has testified twice before the Mueller grand jury said Monday that he expects to be charged in the coming days in the special counsel’s investigation.

“I fully anticipate that in the next few days I will be indicted by Mueller for some form or another for giving false information the special counsel or the grand jury,” Jerome Corsi, a former reporter with Infowars, announced on his daily web show.

So we have heard that Congress-woman elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can't afford an apartment in Washington, D.C until she earns a paycheck or two after being 'inaugurated' in January.


If she had any brains she would have hung around with Maxine Waters and her daughter.

The daughter of Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) will collect more than $200,000 from her mother's campaign after its debts are paid off for leading a lucrative slate mailer operation, Federal Election Commission filings show.

Karen Waters has pulled in hefty payments from the campaign to run a slate mailer operation after the FEC issued an advisory opinion in October 2004 allowing Waters to run the operation from the Citizens for Waters, her mother's campaign committee. Prior to 2006, Karen ran the arrangement through LA Vote, a state committee in California.


Give her some time and Ocasio-Cortez will probably become another self-made millionaire. Or is she really that stupid?

There is a lot of money in the non-profit business. Especially when the poor will always be among you.

Among the hidden hot takes on last week’s election is San Francisco’s Proposition C, whose passage by 60% will reverberate through the region and the country as a whole.

Proposition C was put together by the city’s non-profits working with the homeless who hope to tax companies making over $50 million to come up with $250 to $300 million a year. They promised that the revenue, which would double their budgets, will be used to house the hardcore street dwellers.

These zombified sidewalk dwellers have made national headlines in the past several years. As everyone knows by now, they defecate on public walkways and shoot up in plain view of toddlers hurrying to preschools. They are not required to exchange their plastic syringes, so much of their contaminated plastic refuse floats away into the Pacific, where, I imagine, it gets stuck in the noses of hapless turtles.

I guess this comes as no surprise from the state which gave us Susan Collins, Olympia Snowe, Angus King and Jessica Fletcher. Computer algorithm to decide congressional election.

The election drew to a close last week in most places but not in fishing villages, potato farms and vast tracts of wilderness that comprise Maine’s 2nd Congressional District.

The four-way political battle won’t conclude until a computer algorithm has the final say this week on whether Republican Rep. Bruce Poliquin wins re-election or is ousted by Democratic state lawmaker Jared Golden.

It is one of 13 undecided House seats.

The new way of voting in which all candidates are ranked on a ballot made its national debut in U.S. House and Senate races in Maine.

Under the system, a candidate wins with a majority of first-place votes. If there’s no majority, the last-place candidate’s second-place votes are reallocated to remaining candidates. The computerized process can be repeated until there’s a winner.

Climate change protesters plan day of civil disobedience

Demonstrators have blockaded the UK energy department in London over what they call the climate change crisis.

At least one person has been arrested, the Met Police confirmed.

The UK is seen as a leader in policies to reduce greenhouse gases and ministers will soon be considering tougher targets.

But the protesters say research suggests the chance of keeping global temperature rise under a 2C danger threshold is just one in 20.

The demonstrators blocked entry to the offices by lying chained together on the pavement, while some glued themselves to the doors of the department building.

Mueller confirmed that the image includes students from her school district “who appear to be making extremely inappropriate gestures,” yet said that it “was not taken on school property or at a school-sponsored event.”

She added that the district “is investigating this situation and is working with parents, staff and local authorities.”

“If the gesture is what it appears to be, the district will pursue any and all available and appropriate actions, including legal, to address the issue,” Mueller said. “With that, we want to be very clear: the Baraboo School District is a hate-free environment where all people, regardless of race, color, religion, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin or ancestry, are respected and celebrated.”

19 As an atheist, I have argued that if religion is erased, something must be put in its place. Belief systems are intrinsic to human intelligence and survival. They "frame" the flux of primary experience, which would otherwise flood the mind. Camille Paglia

Blah blah blah blah.

Being a atheist is more of a leap of faith than being a theist. The more you know about the improbability of our universe, the more obvious it is that it did not happen by chance.

Calling herself an atheist is pure virtue signalling--like when she caustically takes apart leftist sacred cows, but then quickly lets you know that sh considers herself a liberal who always votes Democrat.

So now, as CNN puts it, the "terrifying" Roman Salute merits criminal investigation if performed in public.

Sad thing is, if they turned the open palm into a fist the Black Panthers would scream "Cultural Appropriation".

If I was their lawyer, I would claim that there was an American flag outside of the photo that the young men were acknowledging with the Bellamy Salute.

Hmm, maybe not. Proper flag protocol these days involves boots and flame.

OK, then it was the salute that Martin Luther gave when entering the room to answer to the Diet of Worms. Nope. too Christian they would scream Separation of Church And State.

How about the official salute of the Italian Fascist Party made before Benito Mussolini.

The US Military has fought to defend everyone else except the united States. Look at the howling and anguish at a very small contingent that is doing theater duty down at the border.

200 174 Here's what I don't understand about the oh so sad homeless people in high rent cities like San Francisco. Why don't they move to some small town in a state where housing is a lot cheaper, and get a normal, unskilled job?

That is loaded with all kinds of false assumptions.

Some people don't want the responsibility of keeping any kind of home.

Some people really don't want to be responsible for keeping a job.

Do you think it is easier to get drugs and alcohol AND be left alone to enjoy them in San Fran or in a small town?

And have you noticed that the weather and scenery is nice in San Fran?

Why should lunatic drug addicts go infest a small town and decrease the quality of life for those who live there? Especially since San Fran people are on some sort of weird guilt-trip and are always willing and able to underwrite all of your life expenses without any strings attached.

Posted by: ALH at November 13, 2018 10:31 PM (dczB+)







The ugly undercurrent to that truth is that a large number of those mentally ill homeless got that way because they fried their brains on recreational drug use. Leftist cocksuckers like to try floating the excuse that they're using drugs because they're "self-medicating" in an attempt to control their mental illness.

Because nazi's were bad. And leftists will never admit there is anything wrong with socialism. And they love everything involving international socialism. So clearly it's just the "national" part of national socialism that made them evil.

Another reason to watch movies at home:

MARION, Ind. (WTHR) - The Grant County Health Department has confirmed investigators found evidence of bed bugs at a Marion movie theater.

The department told our partners at the Marion Chronicle-Tribune the theater tested positive during an inspection last Friday. An Indianapolis pest control company found bed bug casings in one of four theaters tested at the AMC Classic theater and bed bug eggs in one chair of another theater in the building.

Monday night, a Marion woman told Eyewitness News she was bitten all over her back and arms after going to a movie at the AMC Classic theater.

"About halfway through, she said she felt like something bite her," recalled Dylan Stephenson, whose girlfriend, Adriana Wisner, was the victim of the bites.

Wisner and Stephenson said they left halfway through the movie. Now, they're concerned they may have brought the bugs home.

301 Ace's recent links to "black people enjoy white music they never heard before (supposedly)" videos made me contemplate at length a song I'd never thought much about, because I knew it so well, because it was played over, and over, and over again, on the radio, when I was a kid: Pink Floyd's Time.

Listening to it with fresh ears, it's brilliant, the lyrics, the alternation of verse style and tune, just topnotch work. And I think maybe I understand that last part, the "Home, Home Again" part that always seemed like a separate song tacked onto the end -- I think maybe it's a guy who is not the protagonist of the rest of the song, arriving home after the protagonist's funeral. Maybe. Anyway, it's great.

And it was written by Roger Waters.

Distinctions without a difference.

At the end of the day - you like it when A gets banned from service - but it sucks when B suffers the same.

Your "out" - as it were - is just on the finer points of how balls and strikes should be called.

That's too smart by half. The kind of petard that Republicans constantly hoist themselves by.

You grant the power to ban service - and By God - some will be banned. Including those you think were banned unjustly.

No amount of Rules will control that to your satisfaction. And the more you write, the more you'll hate the outcome.

341 Political viewpoint is not a protected class under current law. Not all leftists are bad employees. But most bad employees are leftists. The self-entitlement and all. It's perfectly legal to tell an employee they're being let go not because of their substandard performance, but because of their Chief Paleface Warren bumper sticker.

And, if Twitter would be honest about it, it would be legal to eject a user for supporting Trump. But then they'd be jeopardizing their status as a non-editorial purveyor of content.

The fly in this ointment, of course, is that media corporations are owned exclusively by leftists who are in symbiosis with the legislators and regulators who "control" their industry. So the "laws" will always favor their "non-editorial" editorial stance as long as we live.

Heh, Jim!

The direct-drive clutch was pooched. Evidently the lip seal on the piston failed, and could not hold pressure on the clutch pack, which slipped and burned up. Got hot enough to turn the drum blue, and warped the pressure plate, which is nearly 1/4" thick.

No other internal damage evident, although all the rubber seals were kind of hard.

Might have been brought on by towing a heavy trailer too much, by a previous owner?

384 AOP.

That failure is COMMON, and is nearly always directly attributable to not servicing the transmission, EVER.

For that Ford Transmission, the best service routine is:

* drain fluids

* bust off the pan and remove and clean the screen.

* new gasket, and replace the pan and screen.

* refill fluids.

* start 'er up, and top off fluids with engine/tranny at idle in neutral.


That's an every 50k mile routine. Most owners, DON'T.

And so you inherited your pain from one who didn't.

It's as simple as new fluid, clean screen. PERIOD.

Not doing that costs, and you PAID.

You wanna tow loads with that rig? If your truck lacks EITHER an Engine Oil Cooler, or a Tranny Oil Cooler. INSTALL ONE.

Ford's internal transmission engineering was largely, correct.

External accessory complimentary cooling equipement?

Yeah, the bean counters strike again.

Well, I bought the truck for $800 because it had a bad transmission. The 4 almost-new tires are worth nearly that. The transmission filter is un-cleanable. Felt filter. It would be nearly impossible to clean it properly, and any attempt to clean it might only loosen crap, which would then circulate.

Lack of service may have entered into it, no question there.

The other clutches were in perfect condition, and will be reused. The two bands probably could have been reused, but I got new ones. And a rebuilt torque converter.

408 When I was a kid, smokes were $2.50 in CO, because we didn't have tax-mad leftists in charge yet. Meanwhile, leftists in a certain east coast state managed to raise smokes to $7-$10.

So it was profitable to gel-print Right Coast tax stamps, and ship cartons east for underground sale to the bodegas. Then, CO joined Bloomberg's Morality Patrol and raised our taxes on tobacco, and it stopped being worth the effort.

Now that FedGov jerkoffs are going to ban menthols, I'm beginning to think about the profitability of resurrecting a new version of this scheme.

The US has yet to fall into these traps where gestures and words have become heinous crimes while actual crimes are being either ignored or praised.

And as noted think of all the money going into an 'Investigation' that will result in pretty much nothing at all.

That's the mental thinking of stupid liberals who blow up every word or gesture that can possibly be thought of as racist or demeaning to someone somewhere. That's not the attitude that made this country the freest and the best.

And every incident like this just brings us closer to being jerks like the rest of the world.

Ever notice how the stupid leaders of schools that are triggered so easily always seem to be run by women.

Maybe some men around to kick a little bit of teenage butt and/or do some role modeling and inventing ways of putting all that energy into some useful form would've stopped this stuff at the start.

A new or rare poster. That's okay, welcome.

But your argument is tired. 'Atheists cannot be moral. They cannot have a set of values, because you get that ONLY from religion.'

Really, bunky? Without the 10 Commandments, you wouldn't know that murder is wrong? That armed robbery is wrong? That trying your best to treat others as you yourself would like to be treated is a good idea?

About 20% of the world's population is muslim. And according to some of their preachers and their good book, killing infidels and taking their shit and enslaving the survivors is A OK.

I'll take your average atheist's POV on right or wrong over that any day of the week.

435 "Can you have morality without God?"

It's a weird question.

The theist says no, for obvious reasons. The Law is imprinted upon the universe. It might almost be conceivable that there could be morality without Humans.

The atheists say yes, because they do not believe in the Transcendent, therefore any morality which does exist (and it most certainly does exist) exists without the agency of a god. Because the non-existence of any god is simply an axiom of thought.

Both are very much a forteriori arguments.

Does belief in God entail belief in morality? well... yeah. No shit.

Does belief in morality entail belief in God? ... maybe? Perhaps "morality" in that case is just a set of Pareto-optimal solutions to the same old same old frictions that humanity has butted up against since before the invention of laughter.

Either way, at the core of any set of Ethics or Morals is the belief that there is something Special and Unique about humanity that demands a certain respect and dignity. If that respect and dignity does not ultimately come from some form of Transcendence, then it is nothing more than the rankest chauvinism (species-ism?).

In other words, morality comes either from an innate respect that all humans owe to each other due to some substantial quality we possess as humans, or it is merely a polite fiction.

I look at this as a meandering, poorly planned, ill thought out, and shoddily executed Apologia for the existence of The Transcendent.

Good Stuff, there. If a lion male kills and eats the litter of a female he is unsure of the parentage of, does a human condemn his immorality? No, he's a beast. Yet in the next breath, a human will applaud the defense of the litter by the female unto death as a moral or worthy act.

Because both acts are judged by humans based upon viewpoints and are both circumstantially valid.

Probably not as bad as the average American college student is exposed to - in the rare case they get any WWII history at all. A depressing thought.

One funny: at the very end they have video interviews with survivors. One was an Aussie POW. His take: bomb was a good thing, saved many lives. Nothing in museum directly contradicts this, but let's say it is not the general tone of the texts.

When American prisoners of war were in the 'Hanoi Hilton' they used to read to them from the New York Times in order to demoralize them. From the Pat Buchanan article some history I doubt .0001% of Americans know...

John F. Kennedy was beloved by the media elite. Yet JFK canceled all White House subscriptions to the New York Herald Tribune and called the publisher of The New York Times to get him to pull reporter David Halberstam out of Vietnam for undermining U.S. morale in a war in which Green Berets were dying.

It wasn't just the lefties doing this. It was a common response when the university administration were acting like assholes, as is their wont.

Wouldn't be prudent for the next President or Vice-President of the United States to get arrested. Think it couldn't happen?

Think again. If the promise is free 'Medicare for all' the African-American and Hispanic constituencies who really flexed their muscle last week could put together an unstoppable coalition.

ObamaCare was the foot in the door. When it could have been killed, John McCain put his fist up in the air and pointed his thumb down. Now 30 trillion dollars in debt and counting, a huge program like 'Medicare for all' would be the knife in the heart.

Trump May Replace Kirstjen Nielsen With Someone Whose Name I Don't Have to Look Up the Spelling of Every Time a Tough-on-Crime Border-Enforcer Who Once Called for Sanctuary Cities Officials to be Charged With Crimes

Michael Walsh at PJMedia excerpts this from Politico:

Tapping Homan to run the Department of Homeland Security would almost certainly energize Trump’s base. The tough-talking lawman once recommended charging so-called sanctuary city politicians "with crimes" and has pugnaciously defended even Trump's most controversial immigration moves, including separating children from their parents at the border.

"Trump wants John Wayne on the border and Tom Homan is John Wayne," said a former Homeland Security official, who cited Homan’s frequent, and often fiery appearances on cable news as a part of his resume that Trump would especially like.

He once served as acting head of ICE, so Democrats will love him.

The problem, though, will be Senate confirmation -- I'm not sure if we're gonna come out of this with enough senators to beat the Margin of Cuck.

11 As to the post, Trump isn't going to swing left, he's going to go even harder to shore up the base.

The problem with the midterms was that HE wasn't on the ballot. There were a ton of do-nothing GOP squishes out there who got outspent and out-hustled.

The GOP has two years to regroup and rebuild. The plus side of this is should Trump win, his second term will be almost like a first term in what he can accomplish.

Plus the Dems will spend the next to years passing House resolutions condemning the National Anthem and banning Santa Claus. It will be glorious.

15 My proposal for sanctuary cities:

Find a community near a sanctuary city where the people hate the idea of being so close to a sanctuary city.

Encourage this community to secede from the Union. Tell the people that they will be entitled to dual citizenship -- U.S. and the new country.

Send the Border Patrol into these sanctuary cities to enforce U.S. law. (Totally legal, as the city is now within 90 miles of an international border.)

I don't even know what to think at this point. I suspect that the coordinated efforts of the sellouts and moonbats are going to drive us to the same place no matter what we would like.

Allow me to introduce you to the "independent voter." They don't follow politics closely because it pisses them off. They don't watch cable TV or live on the internet.

In short, they have a life.

So when campaign time comes around, they look at who is running, what they have to offer, and then they vote as seems best to them.

If the sitting US Senator actually answers their phone calls, shows up at town meetings and generally seems decent, they'll look past the voting record because he solved the problem with Grandma and Medicaid.

It's politics 101 and a lot of TrueCons don't get that. You can waive your ideological purity all over the place, but your personality pisses people off and so they vote for the other one, because: Not A Dick.

Something doesn't smell right here in Phoenix. Gov. Ducey won Maricopa
County by a wide margin, but then Sinema blows it out in the same county
although to obliterate McSally's lead?? Yeah, not buying it.

Actually, that shows there wasn't any (appreciable) fraud.

Ticket-splitting is real.

Obviously the governor convinced independents that he was a good choice, but McSally failed to do the trick.

Think this through with me: Why would Dems fabricate only PART of a ballot?

I mean, why not go all-in?

Why accept *JUST* the senate.

See, in Florida they know to go for the straight ticket and take everything.

This means that either Arizona's Democrat crooks are unusually cunning and willing to fabricate complex ballots that are also pro-GOP or...
McSally ran a crappy campaign.

Here is what I posted earlier today regarding the failures of the GOP this cycle....

Here is my own post mortem on the 2018 campaign.





But for the Herculean effforts of Donald Trump, the GOP would have
been wiped out as they offfered no coherent message or reason to vote
for the party other than tax cuts, which were passed a year ago and are
no longer resident in peoples minds and that the Democrat party is
unhinged.





I know I have harped on the Jay Webber campaign an I will use his
campaign to show how unfocused and undisciplined the general GOP message
was this campaign...





My main modes of media consumption are youtube and watching
Jeopardy, I have been watching Jeopardy religiously for going on 30
years.





I saw the following Jay Webber ads once each in a 5 month span....





https://tinyurl.com/y8znmofd





https://tinyurl.com/y867wlju





Jay Webber sent very few mailers and the mailers he did send were as ridiculous as the two ads that I linked.





His opponent, Rebbecca Michelle "Mike" Sherril ran numerous ads that
appeared each and every commercial break, these are the three ads I saw
the most during the same 5 month span, I probably saw these ads 100's
of times, compare and contrast...





https://tinyurl.com/yc9qhkfo





https://tinyurl.com/ya98sueo





https://tinyurl.com/ydcfk22r





Jay Webber's big spend seems to have been on signs which littered the highway and nothing else..





If anything the signs served to be markers to give drivers the opportunity to say, hey there's that asshole Jay Webber.





From field reports from others it would seem that the GOP chose to spend their money on consultants and not much else.



Now they have been wiped out in NY, NJ, California and much of the NE in the house.





They have literally squandered a once in a lifetime opportunity to
advance a muscular conservative agenda while having probably the most
conservative President in our lifetime in the oval office.





The GOP is an ideologically confused, undisciplined, unorganized,
unprincipled and illigitimate politcal party and all that entails.





And the sad thing is we will more than likely not be able to vote
our way out of our predicament and the GOP will have squandered their 24
years in power.





Sad.

116 The staff running there campaigns for the GOP/republicans are trash. They should be recruiting in comment threads like this one.

Never forget that the political consultants and most politicians and their staff all grew up in the same neighborhoods, went to the same country clubs and schools, were in the same fraternities, got their political degrees from the same universities and clerked for the same judges. They work together, play together, drink together and sleep with each other's spouses.

They just face off once every couple of years for some friendly competition as players on both sides of the political football see who can fleece more cash out of the rubes or the lumpenprols around the country.

They scheme to invent a new crises every week so that they can send out hysterical email blasts accusing the other side of some nefarious deed that will be beaten only if we send in our entire payroll check.

Don't play their game. Its worse than the casinos where you have a chance to make some money and have fun. In this game you get ulcers, nervous breakdowns, a substance abuse habit, broke and the house wins everything.

And throughout my school years, being treated much worse by the blacks than the whites (although neither treated me decent, honestly, but I was in a very unique school situation as a kid that most people like me would never be in...)

McSally was the brainchild of McConnell and Rove. I don't doubt that McCain was in support of her candidacy as well. But, simply put, McConnell threw money at her when she was challenging real Conservatives in the primary. Those real Conservatives cancelled each other out. And, McSally was lying her ass off stating that she was tough on immigration as well as supporting Trump's agenda. In truth, she was on record prior to that with opinions to the contrary.

She as in line to be another disappointment. And, to be honest, I'm glad the GOP Inc. took it on the chin. They lost what should have been one of the easiest races to win.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, - That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

If there was a clear majority, then there wouldn't be legions of close 51/49 votes that can only be decided if you send massive amounts of money to either Team Red or Mob Blue.

Trump's problem is actually his greatest strength.
He comes from the private sector where he is God Almighty.. So shall it be written, so shall it be done..
He is used to getting his way and kicking ass when he doesn't.
That's great in the sense that he doesn't conform to the usual "you can't do that" bullshit in D.C.
But he is naive.. He still thinks he can just fire someone and get results from the next dweeb he puts in charge.. doesn't work that way, Mr President..
The number of Dept heads he has gone through proves this point.. and he still doesn't get it.

The temp filed a discrimination suit against us. He claimed that we had a history of hiring on temps as permanent employees, and the reason that he was not hired was on account of racism.

Actually, the laws are already there.

Its illegal for them to be here. Its illegal to take government largesse when you should not be here. Its illegal to use a fake name or identity to pay taxes. If you don't pay taxes, that is illegal as well.

Its a FELONY to aid and abet illegals to stay, even your own family.

Its a FELONY to make statements encouraging illegals to either come, or stay.

329 Lots of jokers here criticizing Abe Lincoln for (WARTIME) executive overreach who aren't mentioning anything about the fugitive slave law. Guess we ought to be able to use the federal government to deputize the entire country to catch pot smokers or some stupid shit like that.

The Civil War was about the power and wealth of the southern elite(consequently slavery), a group of jackasses who viewed themselves as a new european nobility. Did your average joe subsistence farmer use or benefit from slave labor? Read the declaration of causes for the confederate states and you'll see there is no pretense of some great cause, the cause named is slavery(repeated over and over again to get the point across). The people of the South were used as tools for those who enjoyed stations of wealth and power, much as has been done throughout human history. No need to beatify the slaveholders, who represented the ruling class of the South and the ultimate decision makers.

Lincoln spared us a 150 years of continuous warfare between what would've been rivalrous states had the CSA continued to exist. If you think the Civil War was damaging to liberty, how much do you suppose decades of off and on conflict would've done?

As for the question of secession, that isn't a legal question. If a state secedes, there's nothing prohibiting it from being promptly invaded or annexed, so the answer to the question is moot. Is it a civil war or an invasion? Really doesn't matter except to pedants. The question is which party can impose their will on the other. Might as well be appealing to international law.

The Constitution likewise does not hold actual force. It holds some authority over the question of legitimacy, but if a President were to declare himself king for life or try to mass confiscate guns, the only question that matters is whether people will accept it. The important of the Constitution is that it tells people that there are certain things that shall not be done. It encourages(but does not guarantee) rebellion if certain thresholds are reached. Its a tripwire in a sense, but not a very touchy one if one pays attention to how fragrantly it is frequently disregarded. Nevertheless, there is a certain degree of deference that must be afforded, even the Left, if one means to hold power.

Made me have misgivings on how serious Trump is about a wall and border security.

I still have 'concerns'. And now with the Dems in we'll never see a wall until after 2020.

They've managed another 'hide the button' on the border again.

I'm about to say then let them all in and let's see who starts whining first.

Force the sanctuary states to take them in as they seem to be so in favor of it, along with all the churches who whine and bitch about it. Let them take them in and deal with their parishiners and the fallout when they run someone over or kill them or just take their job.

349 A case could be made that the Democrat Party is un-American, since the Constitution guarantees each state a *republican* form of government, not a democracy.

Its sort of like my stance on Schedule 1 drugs. I don't care if your garage and attic are packed with them. I do care, for as long as society has to pick up the pieces, of any use of them that puts me or anyone around you in danger.

So the same thing with their ideology. I really don't care if they sit in some basement war gaming about overthrowing the government. This protects the 1st Amendment.

We can use our existing RICO and conspiracy laws to prosecute/execute the ring leaders once they move from talk to action. Conspiring to overturn a lawful election through various forms of fraud? We have laws and courts for that.

And I am totally open to deputization of the citizens when their action ramps up too fast for legitimate government reaction.

So in the case of what Snipes is doing, while the governor is jacking off and the sclerosis has set in regarding the departments of government responsible for enforcing the election laws, then it should be lawful and the State military should respect vigilante action to stop the crime. Even if lethal force is the only realistic option to stop it.

For ages, the Left has talked about an organized militia as being the only interpretation of the 2nd Amendment. Given that we had an excellent example of a citizen militia conducting a war during Lincoln's and Sherman's reign of terror, the Left should have a problem with enterprising citizens razing the compound that Snipes has barricaded herself in to conduct her war against the US.

Brown was running ads against Renacci the day after Renecci won the primary. There were hardly any Renacci ads and he never made any case against Brown. Meanwhile Brown painted Renacci as corrupt and played up himself in his being against NAFTA. You can't fight something with nothing and Renacci, who looks like a cheap used car salesman, did nothing.

The rest of the state positions were a close-run thing. Kasich didn't help with his going Progtard.

441 Jamie Herrarra Beutler won re-election against a newcomer carpetbagger from Oregon. And Jamie is a never Trumper and seems to believe every woman that makes an accusation against a guy.

But she had town halls and visited her entire district. She had competing ads against Long, that played almost every time a Long ad played. I have no idea where the money came from but she fought hard for the seat and won it. I don't expect her to do much with it, but it's the campaign McSally should have run.

500 495 The thing could be done. Actually, I sort of did that once, following some web page where you stuff a burger with cheese. You flatten it out large and thin, heap the cheese in the middle, and then fold it up to make a usual burger-looking thing.

Only did it once, though. It sounds better than it is.

They ascended to power in '94 after nearly 60 years of unbroken Democrat rule in the house and Senate and have virtually squandered their '24 years at the helm.

They had the most conservative Presidents in US history and they proceeded to do jack and shit with this once in a lifetime opportunity.

John Kasich: I STAND WITH FRANCE

Of coruse, the Son of a Mailman (Had you heard?) John Kasich can't wait to march under a foreign flag.


French President Emmanuel Macron's thinly-veiled shots at President Trump over the weekend won at least one hearty American "oui" -- from Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

Mr. Kasich, a frequent critic of Mr. Trump, took to Twitter to second Mr. Macron's attack on "nationalism" at a speech Sunday marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

"@EmmanuelMacron is right," Mr. Kasich tweeted, going on to quote what the French leader said in front of Mr. Trump, who has taken much criticism as racist for calling himself a "nationalist."


As Trump pointed out -- probably correctly -- Macron is probably trying to increase his pitiful 26% approval rating (71% disapproving) by picking a fight with a foreign leader even less popular in France than he is.

But that doesn't stop Katshit from moving quickly to endorse a foreign impotentate.

Seems like Katshit is running for the Bill Kristol's Last Remaining Donors primary.

Ahoy -- or as they say in French, ohe'.

79 My willowed Linux rant from the last thread:

I loaded Mint on a W7 machine in a dual boot configuration, but the @#$%^&* Mint did not play nice. It screwed up inter alia my network settings, so a lot of things no longer worked in W7. Took me most of an afternoon to find and fix all the things Mint had changed.

I have two big problems with Linux.

1. Any time I want to do a non-standard thing, I try the obvious thing, Linux breaks, and it takes me a week of research to find the super-cryptic CLI command to fix it. I hate that.

2. Linux is a hodge-podge of design philosophies written by a ton of enginerds who have no interest, experience, or talent at design.

There's a reason Apple products "just work" for Apple people. That reason is Apple has a unified design philosophy and anyone who has used Apple for a while will feel like any unknown piece of software is INTUITIVE. It's not really intuitive, it's simply conformant to Apple design philosophy. The end result is Apple people can try a few things that have worked for similar problems in the past and the solution will probably be in those places they will think to look.

Linux is nothing like this.

Linux-heads can spit out "closed source" and "walled garden" and "Apple peeps are told how to think" arguments all they want, but at the end of the day, having an intuition for how to solve problems in a new piece of software is both comforting and extremely productive. CLI commands with archaic command flags and extremely forgettable executable names simply do not compare.

93 The entire contemporary left, and the whole concept of a "peace movement" and a "borderless world" -- began with WWI. People tend to forget that. Eveyone focuses on how WWII changed our world -- and change it it did -- but WWI was equally important. Because WWI was the final war fought "for no good reason." That is to say, it was the last war ignoted and conducted without any underlying ideology motivating either side. What exactly did Germany or France "stand for" in WWI? Nothing. In WWII, in contrast, it was very clearly defined that the Axis stood for totalitarianism, while the Allies stood for democracy. coughStalincough. Well, you know what I mean, at least. In theory.

There was a huge outpouring of anti-war books, poems, articles, novels, etc. after WWI, which launched the way the modern left still thinks.

Macron was re-iterating the feeling that emerged in 1918 -- a feeling which is now ludicrous and irrelevant. Kasich is equally a century out of date, trapped in Belle Eppch utopian fantasyland.

107 OT - Is it typical in a 'recount' to co-mingle all ballots in a county rather than keeping them sequestered into their precinct boxes and class (early, mail in, etc). Because based upon video Broward has lumped them all together.

In contrast - Michigan kept all ballots segregated in the original ballot boxes.

179 Reposted from an afternoon thread:

392 Nationalism is people of every different race and religion united in one nation they love. It is as appropriate as families are. Do you parents want to live in a commune where your beliefs, traditions, child rearing styles, and family history become a generic meaningless blend of 29, 000 other families? Of course not. You value your family roots and traditions and history and you do it without devaluing anyone elses.

If you thought Nationalism had anything to do with white supremacy or hate its time to walk away from the mainstream news and dunk your head in a vat of dumbass remover.

p.s. for Pete's sake, study American history and learn why there is so much to protect and be proud of here. Enjoy your life here. Or continue to walk around an amazing country being outraged with every damn thing it does but being unable to articulate why (in which case, please refer to vat mention in paragraph 2).

Carry on.

194 The best part about WWI is that it brought the last Muslim Empire -- the Ottoman Empire -- crashing down forever. People forget that, before 1917, the West was always rivaled by this or that Muslim Empire, glowering at the civilized West from outside the ramparts, waiting for a weakness. Once the Ottomans collapsed, the Muslims have been discombobulated and at each others' throats in internecine battles for a solid century. Which I personally regard as A Good Thing. Better that than a unified Muslim world -- which is what both Al Qaeda and ISIS tried to resurrect.

197 Kasich is so grating. Not only in his idiotic positions, but his general assholeish approach to debate. Guy is very easy to dislike.

For example, Levin disagreed with Trump's declaration of being a nationalist, but unlike Kasich, Levin is fair with his criticism and at least backs up his position somewhat logically. Even when I disagree with Levin, it's not a grating, supremely annoying experience.
It also helps that Levin will turn right back around and defend Trump against the many ridiculous claims and abuses. It's obviously not a personal grudge - compared to Kasich who comes across as a bitter little worm.

It carries a different meaning in Europe because their political architectures (and cultures) are all distinctly different from ours.

In America, we never even used the word - except for people who wanted more centralized power to try and turn our federal government into a national one. The only reason it was even introduced in this last campaign was because of the Eurotrashphile America-hating lefties, here. But it's really a European concept and has no real analogue here.

He shops at Kroger's doesn't he?

I shop at Meijer's across the street
He lives on the street a block over from me.

In the year we moved into the new house, my neighbors would hit golf balls from their front yard into the undeveloped land next door, down the street, and send their daughters to fetch golf balls (they were about 10 and 12 at the time). So Kasich is about a par 3 from my house.

Some years ago, we went out to eat at Wendell's, and he and his buds were in the booth next to us. I was literally about 12 inches from his back, on the adjoining booth. And there was a plain clothes State Trooper sitting at the bar, as his security.

He actually is pretty goofy, close up. I used to admire him as a congressman, but he's gone off his rocker.

His wife is a nice person, though. He has twin daughters that I think are 20 now.

267 I hope that the President will order the evacuation of all dependents from Germany. We can move our soldiers, or not, rather rapidly if it comes to that. But, evacuating the dependent population would be a fairly interesting exercise. Dicks would get hard everywhere.

268 241 Lurking Lurker: I keep reading that Amazon is considered by its employees (both ex- and current) as one of the ALL-TIME WORST places to work.

These snowflakes say that about all of the tech companies.

Because they're very merit based -- if you don't hit your metrics, you eventually get fired

Yes, that can be stressful if you suck at your job or don't put in the hours.

But then again, you're also getting paid very, very well, and if you don't like your "work-life balance," you are free to take a pay cut and work somewhere else.

I have several friends at Amazon (and other tech companies) who bitch and moan about these snowflakes (mostly women) who are constantly whining about how demanding their jobs are.

Like, yeah, you're making $250,000 a year. You're expected to work more than 40 hours a week. That's kind of a given at that salary level.

269 Pinellas county recount is done. Scott gained 3 votes. DeSantis gained 19.

This is out of 430,000 votes.

Even with the fraud happening in Broward there is no way they can "find" 13,000 votes in a recount.

272 As I understand it, it comes down to a matter of definitions. I took what Trump said to be this: "I'm a nationalist as in I place my country's needs first (which is my JOB), and everyone else's needs second."
Levin disagreed based on the word being borrowed from collectivists in the past who used "nationalism" as a justification for collectivism.

In any case, I think I got what Trump was saying and understood what Levin was saying... Not a big deal to me. Just a matter of semantics as I took it.

Actually, no. When the Ottoman Empire fell, the Muslims were disunited and hopelessly outclassed by Western Civilization. The Muslim world became a forgotten backwater.

It was the influx of oil money after WWII that enabled them to regain strength and start harassing the Western world.

283 Some years ago, we went out to eat at Wendell's, and he and his buds were in the booth next to us. I was literally about 12 inches from his back, on the adjoining booth. And there was a plain clothes State Trooper sitting at the bar, as his security.

Sounds like he won't have to worry about being chased out of a restaurant by Antifa goons.

True. But I think it works similarly -- they get paid well (for the work) and have incentive pay for hitting metrics and if you work hard, you like the extra cash. If you just want to phone it in, youre in constant fear of being fired.

But, yes, I'm sure it's much less stressful and easier to work a cash register at the local gas station.

289 It wasn't just that the Ottoman Empire collapsed but that Ataturk decided to try and Westernize Turkey and set about taking islam totally out of any governing position. Totally. He even changed their alphabet to make them more Western.

It worked for a good long while ... until 2003 when the EU decided to play around with Turkey and told them that they had to take supreme power away from the secular military, in their constitution, in order to be considered for EU membership (though the EU never intended to ever allow Turkey in, for good reason). But they just had to get their kicks screwing Turkey up and allowing the islamists to gain political power, again. yay!!

Great line from"Last of the Mohicans":"Kindly inform Major Heyward that he has little to fear from this General
