110 In all fairness, you would think it would be hard to keep track of deaths in a senior center. It is something you notice for a lot of these serial killers who set up shop in hospitals or the like. It all depends on what they mean by 'suspicious'.

111 at the senior center where he worked.

-

Don't forget that each time he went to work was an individual instance of the law being broken. Every morning, every time he went to lunch, etc. Each and every time he walked through the doors.

They're not charged that way, but it's no different than speeding. You don't get to drive 20 over all year and get one ticket for the instance you're caught. You're breaking the law every time.

Illegal aliens commit hundreds of millions of crimes every year.

I've been hunting news on this, hard to find, but it looks to me that he worked at a fairly low-end senior facility, that mostly housed elderly black women with distant or no families - women who would never be missed by much of anyone.

It's always disturbing how serial killers are able to sniff out the easy, low risk targets. That's why this could go on so long, he picked victims that no one cared about.

Isn't it FBI definitions?

I'm doing this off memory but mass murder is multiple people at one time (over three? four?).

Spree murder is multiple people in a short amount of time in a close locale (someone offs their spouse and kids, then the neighbor and then flees, and then kills a couple of other people before being shot by the cops)

Serial killer is multiple victims of similar demographics over a period of time.

As I said I'm doing this off memory but that's what I recall.

The attacks killed 38 elementary schoolchildren and six adults, and also injured at least 58 other people. Prior to his timed explosives going off at the school building, Kehoe had killed his wife and firebombed his farm. Arriving at the site of the school explosion, Kehoe died when he detonated explosives concealed in his truck.

Coming to a Tech-Monopoly Ruled Country By You: China Experiments With an System That Issues a Sonic Alarm to Indicate People Who Are Low In Their "Social Credit" System

Via Le Figaro, translation mine.

I'm sure Google and FaceBook are noodling with this sort of idea. Wouldn't it be useful to have your phone give off a signal of alarm whenever there's a Deplorable within 15 feet?

Quick, let's give them all the power to rule us before they can refuse it!

In the framework of its very controversial system of "social credit," the Middle Kingdom is experimenting in certain provinces with some measures intended to embarrass the citizens who declare themselves to the authorities to be bankrupt....

These "laolai" ["deadbeat debtors" in Chinese] are "bad payers" who drag around their credits on their back and suffer in consequence restrictions and daily humiliations due to the will of the communist leaders.

Since 2014, the communist government has been refining a system of "social credit," which measures daily Chinese citizens in order to punish the "bad" subjects of the Middle Kingdom and reward the most virtuous. A powerful instrument of social coercion, which is relies upon big data for collecting the information, the Chinese system of [ranking] punishes its "discredited" citizens, writes them into the blacklist of the communist party, for contracts and for bankloans, for getting an apartment, for taking a flight or even for using the trains of the country.

According to the report of the national center of credit information, China has blocked annually 17.5 million plane tickets and 5.5 million train tickets for such "discredited" citizens.

In the country's east, in the province of Guanyun, some telecom businesses, in collaboration with the local authorities, assign a special alarm for indebted inhabitants, which warns people looking to call them that they are about to contact a flagged citizen. To hell with the customary "wait" signal. This time, the traditional "beep" is replaced by recorded vocal message very embarrassing for the indebted citizen. According to the public press agency Xinhua, the wait-signal message goes like this: "The person that you are calling has been placed on the blacklist by the authorities of the province of Gunyun. If you would, please exhort this person to fulfill his legal obligations. The employees of the local government appreciate your support. Thank you!"

Besides Guanyan, the city of Huangshi, situated in the province of Hubai at the center of the country, and the city od Degfend, situated in the province of Henan, have likewise introduced similar measures. Started a year ago, the measure has only the goal of embarrassing the citizens who declared themselves to the authorities to be insolvent....

The supreme court of China established a base of information searchable on line, which [records] the indebted citizens of the country. Full names, identification numbers, age, city of origin and details of the debt, the private information of 13 million people with bad credit histories, according to the South China Morning Post, have been thrown into the public pasture for grazing. In the same vein, a province situated in the north of China has developed a mobile app which locates in a perimeter of 500 meters the indebted citizens around you. The bureaucrats, faithfuls of the communist party, affirm that this system is in operation, and thus 3.5 citizens or businesses have paid their taxes or debts thanks to this application.

Can't wait.

PS: Chase bank, here in the "free" USA, now refuses to provide bank accounts to those on its own private social credit blacklist.

Does everyone see where this is going? And I mean literally where this is going: It's going to America next. China is just the preview shows in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Working the kinks out of the production.


Don't be evil, Google said, and then implemented a system of data-collection and constant surveillance which was then used communist dictatorships to harass and humiliate its citizens.

Not that Google would ever be a party to anything like that:

FTA, it seems that they are tracking and storing data of people who do. Otherwise, if there is a google javascript running on the page from which you purchased, it is feasible to track and associate it to your IP (and possibly you) based on your other online activity.

"Qualcomm's licensing practices have strangled competition" in parts of the chip market for years, harming rivals, smartphone makers, and consumers, Koh wrote in a 233-page decision.

She ordered the San Diego-based company to renegotiate licensing agreements at reasonable prices, without threatening to cut off supplies, and ordered that it be monitored for seven years to ensure its compliance.

Study found the soil "smelled like soil and nothing else."

The State of Washington is now officially offering a third option for how residents can handle the bodies of loved ones after they've passed on: they can be turned into compost.

On Tuesday, the state's Democratic Governor, Jay Inslee, signed SB 5001 "concerning human remains" into law, which includes composting along with burials and cremations as a means of handling human remains. The law -- the first of its kind in the U.S. --will go into effect on May 1, 2020. Alkaline hydrolysis is the reduction of human remains to bone fragments and essential elements in a licensed hydrolysis facility using heat, pressure, water, and base chemical agents. Natural organic reduction is the contained, accelerated conversion of human remains to soil."

The bodies are "mixed with substances like wood chips into about two wheelbarrows' worth of soil in a span of several weeks," Fox explains. The resulting compost can then be used by loved ones.

The new law "paves the way for Recompose, a project to build the first urban 'organic reduction' funeral home in the country,"

What this does, of course, is make the reactions more extreme. If gangsters can't go to jail because they wear badges, they'll go to the cemetery. Colonize a nation of tens of millions without recourse, and mindsets go from "vote them out" to "prep the gas chambers."

They stared at it for a while, then proceeded into the store. The lady went shopping and the old man stayed near the door, studying it and watching to see if he could figure it out.

When the woman was in the checkout line finishing up, he took his hat off and tossed it toward the door and the door opened.

It is going to come down to the state and local governments. I think the separation from DC has already started one way or the other for many states. But it's slowly and ever subtly happening (sometimes not so subtle) with all 50 states. And there's even divorces taking place within the states themselves.

This could be a very good thing for some states and total disaster for others. Interesting times indeed.

One thing I noticed a while back that when I click a twit link from the HQ or any number of right-leaning sites, twitter always responds with an error, I suspect because they are filtering by the referrer information passed in the http request.

Simply reload or copy and paste the link and there is no referrer in the http request, twit loads just fine. Been about a year now. Doesn't matter the browser or platform.

..
The primary problem isn't stuff like cookies, it's browsers built for spying (Chrome, MS stuff) and apps abusing their permissions on mobile devices, and/or operating outside of them entirely via workarounds.
They aren't just tracking browsing; they're actively spying via the microphone, camera, GPS, wifi and bluetooth info, etc. Also stealing any and all contacts, media stored on the device, and so on. And then you have other connected devices doing the same thing without even a set of permissions to tap through; things like TV's, camera/mic enabled game consoles, smart assistants, wifi security devices, doorbell cams, etc.

The same logic applies to why there's still about 50% of us who see thru the bullshit and make a Trump possible. We were educated before the schools were totally taken over and still have some critical thinking skills and can see through the bullshit. But we're dying out and there aren't enough young ones to replace us.

I remember hearing a story from long back Chinese history - an Emperor was in power who believed in Harsh Discipline for Everything, and Death for almost all crimes. Specifically, he decreed the Death Penalty for anyone who disobeyed any order, for any reason, no exceptions.

So a certain captain and his men, a small group, had been ordered to report to a base by a certain day. They encountered terrible storms and floods, which delayed them, and they realized they were going to reach their base one day late. Realizing that this was going to be an automatic death penalty for them all, they instead retreated into the hills and started appealing to everyone who was fed up with this Emperor's draconian rules. Within 3 years they'd accumulated an army big enough to overthrow the empire and kill that Emperor.

486 I think he's drawn challengers before it's a heavy R district and people that live there seem to hate him. He's a Ron Paul asshole. He's only in office because 2 more traditional conservatives split the vote in a primary. "

He's also a member of a Palestinian "Christian" family, so he hates Jews just like every other Palestinian does. And it has no doubt filled him with rage to see Trump get as close to Israel as he has. Amash - just another modern day Nazi who decided to let us all see his black and red armband.

Fellow citizens could up vote or down vote you.

If you reached X amounts of dislikes, restaurants wouldn't serve you.

If you received too many dislikes, I think the state arrested you and basically erased your personality.

Al Jazeera Publishes Video Questioning Reality of the Holocaust; When Critics Begin Reposting the Video, Al Jazeera Asks Twitter to Censor Its Critics -- And Twitter Complies

#MuhPrivateMonopolies.

The Arabic network Al Jazeera posted a video that questioned the Holocaust, saying "People are divided between those who deny the annihilation, others who think that the outcome was exaggerated, and others yet who accuse the Zionist movement of blowing it out of proportion."

Al Jazeera apologized for the video.

But Twitter blocked people from sharing a version of the video with English subtitles, invoking Al Jazeera’s copyright. Other translated videos did not receive that treatment.

The Qatar-funded Al Jazeera news network published a video questioning the Holocaust and implying that Jews have benefited from it.

Then, when Western media caught them and published translations, Twitter agreed to censor the westerners' translated versions, invoking Al Jazeera's copyright.

Meanwhile, Al Jazeera has not been suspended or banned by any of the social media monopolies.

Only its critics are being censored.



America's Sweetheart, Ilhan Omar, naturally retweeted the Al Jazeera account that tweeted out this antisemitic propaganda, about a different post mentioning her. She didn't seem that bothered that she was retweeting an account trafficking in Holocaust denial.

Pew did a poll around 2013 or so. The percentage of practicing Muslims (that means praying) who believe Sharia should be the law of the land, apostates should be executed, etc. STARTS at 50%.

"Among those who want sharia to be the law of the land, in 10 of 20 countries where there are adequate samples for analysis at least half say they support penalties such as whippings or cutting off the hands of thieves and robbers."

130 So the holocaust was exaggerated and all blown out of proportion eh?

A good friend of mine, now deceased was stationed in Bad Tolz Germany back in the 70's. In that area were a lot of "retired" former Nazis. Yu know, real Nazis. They admied the US Special Forces guys stationed at Bad Tolz and my friend got to chatting with some of these guys. He was able to meet the General who was in charge of the train shipments to the camps. My friend would later write his Masters thesis on Logistics using some of this information.
The key question is how did you take time to run Jews to camps by the thousands while fighting a two front war?
It wasn't easy and the effort was massive.

All it takes is being inquisitive and incredulous.

Once you have identified a few examples of systematic dishonesty in the institutions, you become an automatic rejectionist, and require proof of claims.

Then you rapidly discover a serious, systemic problem with lies and ignorance, begin closing the gap with your own research, and it won't be long before your little teenaged ass is miles ahead of the adults who are supposed to be "educating" you.

"The concepts of normal labor, heavy labor and extra heavy labor have to be regarded in objective terms, independent of racial consideration, as a through-put of calories and muscular effort. It is illusory to believe that one can achieve the same performance from 200 inadequately fed people as with 100 properly fed workers. On the contrary: the 100 well-fed workers produce far more and their employment is far more rational. By contrast, the minimum rations distributed simply to keep people alive, since they are not matched by any equivalent performance, must be regarded from the point of view of the national war economy as a pure loss, which is further increased by the transport costs and administration..."

He gave them a public out, "Work with me on infrastructure," but he also did it with a condition. "You have to prioritize it over impeachment."

The crazies have way too much power in the Democratic Party, so leadership can't dedicate themselves to that, and we get a public demonstration of Democratic leadership prioritizing impeachment over legislation.

298 Two tiny historical bits.


The shortage of food towards the end of the war wasn't a major factor in the overall death toll. Most of the systematic murder of Jews had taken place long before spring '45 [by numbers]. The "death marches" from camps being over-run - mostly on the eastern front - contributed, and of course the killing in the camps only stopped when Soviet or western Allied forces arrived.


The "blocking detachments" [zagraditelniye otryadi] started with Order No. 227 of July '42, during the Germans' headlong offensive rampage in the south that ended rather poorly, later, at Stalingrad. Stalin's order cited German units performing the same role on their side. The use of such units declined/ended as the Soviets kept the initiative later in '43, I think, have to check.

There were three long running TV productions

322 Dems are shocked, shocked!, that Trump doesn't keep turning the other cheek after they smear, abuse and threaten him. He is supposed to be a good boy like Bush and be polite, cordial and coming back for more. Like during the 2007 financial crises after some meetings in the White House, Pelosi went out and slammed and smeared Bush, without one word back from the White House (that would have been undignified, I suppose.). He should have have said screw you, we work together on this or not at all.

326 Should know the figures but forget - but most/large part of the murders of Jews was via shooting, and occurred in '41 - '43, from Poland through the occupied areas of the USSR, esp. Ukraine and Belarus. Himmler's speech to the gauleiters, reminding/informing them they were part of a system that had committed historic crimes [by non-Nazi standards] was in the fall of '43, I think. His point - uh, guys, you are neck-deep in things that will stretch your neck if we lose the war - so let's make sure we win, OK?

Sixth grade for me. I wrote a report about the American Revolution.

Teacher graded it at a B+ on the basis that "American Revolution" was redundant and that I should have only used the phrase "the revolution".


She honestly thought it was the only revolution to have ever occurred.

Is this where I mention that she eventually affirmative-actioned her way into becoming the principal of the high school I attended?

The kid is a Jew from Poland (I think, it's been a long time), but culturally German. Germany and Poland mixed a lot back then. An aristocratic German officer takes a liking to him and sends him back to a safe part of Germany and enrolls him in a boarding school.

So, he's in school trying to pass as a non-Jew German. Or, you know, die.

They call him up in front of class to have phrenology measurements done on his head. It's very squirmy. The scientist pronounces his skull perfectly Aryan.

He can't show his dick to anyone. He pulls skin dick up like a foreskin and sews it shut, hoping it will work. A little German girl thinks he's a fag because he won't sleep with her.

It's two hours of that.

331 Cronkite narrated "The Twentieth Century," but his subsequent career was enough to make anybody challenge whatever was on there.
Don't put too much faith in any TV documentary, regardless of its age. Ustinov did a British one so obviously written by the Soviets, if you'd been there or actually studied the accounts it would make you gag.

332 I've been reading a novel featuring real Nazis so I've been researching some. One is Arthur Nebe. A career policeman, he volunteered to command Einsatzgruppe A, one of three mobile Jew-killing formations that followed the Wehrmacht into Russia. According to his own reports, he is directly responsible for murdering at least 45,000 people. Later he was involved in the July 20, 1944 assassination attempt on Hitler and was executed. So far, so good but there is a Nebe excuse movement. He was just a good old boy, never meaning no harm as shown by his turning against Hitler three years later. I would suggest it wasn't his conscience that caused him to turn anti-Nazi but rather he was all for Big Adolph while he was winning but not so much when he began to lose.

Just ranting, but angered me when I read about it.

Then there was "Victory at Sea".

The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
"Well, just when you think the GOP has finally gotten everything under control, they go and step on their own d*cks. Again. Here is their latest f*ck-up: Mitch McConnell has just introduced a bill which would increase the minimum age to buy cigarettes and other tobacco products from 18 to 21 years. When I first heard about this, I smacked myself in the forehead so hard, the slope disappeared. I mean, is federal intervention is such matters really necessary? That's quite a silly display of nanny-statism. Apparently, the several states aren't competent enough to handle these things for themselves but require the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-benevolent FedGov to make these decisions for them. Sounding like quite the alarminst, Cocaine Mitch said, quote, the health of our children is literally at stake, unquote. The panic implied in this statement rivals AOC's claim that "the world is going to end in 12 years" if we don't immediately mandate buttplugs for cows and outlaw economic prosperity. Never mind the fact that 18-year-olds are scarcely children. Never mind the fact that these same 18-year-olds are eligible for military service, so even though they can be shipped off to foreign soil and die in combat, they can't buy their own cigarettes. Soon, liquor stores all across America will be festooned with crowds of 18-21 year old "children" asking adults to buy cigarettes for them. But bigger than any of that, though, does anybody really want this? Does anyone recall hearing any calls for legislation about this from normal Americans? I thought the purpose of the federal government was to maintain post roads and collect tariffs from surly foreigners, not to post inspectors in every lavoratory to make sure you wiped your butt good enough. C'mon, Mitch, it's time to focus on what's really important: confirming more of Presidents Trump judicial picks so that perhaps there will be a chance that this country can be restored to some semblance of sanity, and also doing whatever it takes to insure that our borders are not overrun by surly foreigners who don't want to pay tariffs. Let the states make their own laws about tobacco usage, and the federal government can just butt the hell out. After all, the 10th Amendment shouldn't be that hard to understand."

5/8-Emperor Country Boy needs guidance, direction, energy, strength, patience, and motivation for work situation.

Wednesdays are days in which mothers in the horde and anyone else says special prayers for children of horde members. Please include the grandchildren as well.

Please note; Prayer requests are generally removed after five weeks or so unless I receive an update. This in NOT because we don’t care; It’s simply because of lack of space. Updates as well as thanks for answered prayer and new prayer requests are always welcomed.

Please feel free to copy requests which you see on the board and send them to me. I am unable to be on the board all the time, even though it seems like I am, and so if people don’t tell me about prayer requests I may have no way of knowing. Thx and God bless!

White Milk is racist???

Damn straight.

Perhaps we need to invite the author to one of our breakfast gatherings. We can go to the Waffen House or International House of Klancakes. Off course the only drink we're going to serve is WHITE MILK !!!! Chocolate milk dilutes the white purity.... and besides white milk is the only breakfast drink that conforms to our code of "NO JOOSE"!!!

But Halle Berry, when she was young and Prime, was very...elusive, apparently. Lots of guys trying to casting couch her to little (I won't say no) effect.

Entirely different. A good muffuletta is thick piled meat (usually ham) with typically a green olive relish on a circular soft bun. Po'boy is usually fried seafood (oysters or shrimp or both) on a really crusty french type roll. The crustier the better.

88 As strange as it sounds, Mitch's bill is actually a sop to the tobacco companies (and the states) who are losing huge amounts of tax revenue due to vaping's popularity. As we all know, public health always takes a back seat to dollars.

What will soon happen is that the cigarette aspect of the bill will be stripped leaving only the ban on selling vape supplies to people under 21.

Then, various paid-for party hacks will stand in front of cameras and claim to have 'struck a blow against big tobacco'.

They may even use that exact phrase, the pharisees.

This to me is an example of how the authoritarian left, once it decrees something BAD will not let up in it's fanatical pursuit of making sure nobody, anywhere, nohow, circumvents their authority.

Personally I think vaping is a wonderful solution and wish it had been around when I was a smoker to keep me from inhaling all that carcinogenic stuff that was in cigarettes.


And yeah, while nicotine may be addictive, so is caffeine. Are we all supposed to become Mormons? For crying out loud.

Likewise, McC's assholery is way-y-y-y-y-y-y-yyy down the list of things anyone gives two shits about. At least the democrats were behaving to type when implementing their nanny-statism. Ugh.

185 Thank you all for your prayers. Mrs. kim is doing well with her infusions. She gets the biologic drug every six weeks. Once she gets the drug she is down and out for two days.(headaches and nausea) after that for about four weeks she feels relatively better then the two week stretch is on where the pain in her joints and back is at the worst. Rinse-repeat.

I guess that is better than no relief at all. I only wish I could take it away. I would take it for myself if she could be free of the pain and debilitation.

And you can enlist in the armed forces at 18, enter binding contracts by then if not sooner. Vote. Strip, make porn. Etc. etc. This is British nanny-state level of dumbness.

But what's the difference between a po-boy and a "sub" sandwich?

Geography is probably the biggest driver, but I'd imagine that
matters less and less over the last twenty five years. Heck, there are
probably more yankees in New Orleans than Southerners these days.



Nowadays it's probably if the bread crust is soft or cruncy.

True enough. You don't hear the classic regional "Yat" dialect much any more. "Yat," by the way, is a contraction of "Where y'at," once the standard white working-class inquiry as to how you are, rather than your location. Its speakers sounded like Brooklyn cab drivers from '40s movies. (I grew up with it as a sort of second language.)

292 Supposedly this whole thing has to do with an "epidemic" of vapers. It isn't even about tobacco. How long ago was it that vaping was supposed to be helping people quit smoking tobacco and was a "reduced risk"product?

At this point I doubt anyone who speaks out on the subject as they all have an agenda. Some will tell you cigars, cigs, chew, vape all have the same risk, that is is dangerous to even compare them to each other. They have no science backing them, but they do have their principles. It is odd that no one calls out the patch, nicotine gum and other products made by big pharma.

Sure smoking is bad, you should not do it. Then again, when was the last time someone got killed by a smoke driver? Hell, it was not that long ago that the smoking age was 16. Were we really so backward back then? I guess we were, we even didn't card people buying beer if they had gray hair. It was a simpler time.

For whatever reason, the R's have decided that using government is just fine as long as they wield the power The government is getting way too happy with messing with business, picking winners and losers. It is not the best occurrences if you are a movement conservative. And it seems Big Tobacco is in on it too. The big tobacco companies have benefited greatly from government interference to date. I don't know if they support Mitch on this move because they see a real gain in it or if they are just trying to stay on the good side of the guys that decide the future of their business.

It is odd that no one calls out the patch, nicotine gum and other products made by big pharma.

Answer Part 1: sales have dropped significantly with the popularity of vaping.


Vaping isn't covered under tobacco taxes.



Answer Part 2: just like no gas taxes with electric cars.

Answer Part 3: AFIAK, there are no vaping lobbyists.




Posted by: Bert G at May 22, 2019 12:02 PM (OMsf+)

yeah well they can decide vape is tobacco and somehow nicotine gum/the patch are not tobacco because well, they are the deciders. And of course this has to do with taxes. But they get people behind it by calling it an "epidemic". I personally think 18 year olds who never smoked choosing to vape is pretty dumb but hell. I don't like their music, hairdos, politics, tatoos, etc.

348 When I was in college, I pondered, if I stood astride the Illinois-Wisconsin state line, with a beer in my Wisconsin side hand (drinking age: 1, is my Illinois side violating the law (drinking age: 21).

I remember casting my first vote at 20, thinking of how stupid everybody was (including myself) in the 18-20 age group who were now deciding things.

Arrrrrrrrbitrary

AGE APPROPRIATE
16 - Drink, smoke, marry with parents' permission
18 - Can join military, drink, smoke, and marry freely.
Also, military can vote, and drive on duty.
21 - Allowed to drive, after driver's ed
26 - Allowed to vote, after passing citizenship test

351 In Texas, the age of consent is 17. And the courts would never let anything get in the way of a teen having an abortion. And you'll be tried as an adult for any serious criminal misadventure. And you can enlist in the armed forces at 18, enter binding contracts by then if not sooner. Vote. Strip, make porn. Etc. etc. This is British nanny-state level of dumbness.

And just yesterday, a bill setting a 21 year age limit for tobacco passed the second house of the TX legislature. I expect Abbott will sign it "for the children."

39 The colors are exquisite. That electric blue in her apron really pops. Her whole outfit is just primary colors, but the red and yellow are faded and warn allowing the blue to dominate. The rest of the painting is variations of the warm colors--yellows, tans, golds, red/oranges. The only cool color to counter this is the blue. This is such a nice use of color. It is both warm and cool at the same time.

89 The scene is nothing dramatic. But Vermeer's use of color and detail brings it alive. The soft, almost bland, colors for the walls, floor, and window frame serve to frame the brighter hues of her dress and bring out details of the tableware. It's effective.


Vermeer always has the extra little details that complete a scene. The weave of the basket and sheen of the wall hangings and the slight Delft look of the bottom wall tiles are good examples. I'm not sure what the wooden thing is on the floor behind the woman. Maybe a mouse trap? Clearly it's supposed to lend realism or accuracy to the setting.

Thanks, CBD. Vermeer is always a pleasure to look at.

100 My MIL milked cows the morning she got married.
She's 87 and loves to tell you that. If you wanted to give her some shit, I guess you could just ask what she did the morning before and the morning after. I never do though, because she's never all "get off my haystack" about it. She has lost most of her tractor-driving skills, damn it.

Whenever she's coming over for a few days, weeks, what have you, we make up some little gag about putting her to hell to work. Her church friends out home, a pretty straight lot, all just chuckle and titter, but wife's FB brigade drops a brick in their apron. "Really?" "You wouldn't do that would you?" I'll generally pose her with a piece of power eqpt just to mess with 'em.

I do like those pipe drills. They sure have smoothed out the streets in these parts. Don't really care for their huge "Danish" bales though. Seeing a mountain of them, under tarps instead of in the barn? Makes me think of new and different breeds of mold and vermin. And then that damn spike you run through them -- sooner or later, somebody's going to get one of those and an attitude on the same day. Could make the papers.

121 Another nice part of this painting is the balance of space. A whole lot of nothing on the right with a bunch of something on the left. The left is just packed with stuff, so why is it balanced and not left-heavy? Because the lady is positioned just right of center. A human figure will almost certainly dominate the scene (unless they are really tiny in the composition), so put it on the empty side. But yet Vermeer places her just right of center and slightly overlapping onto the left to keep the two halves unified. And because that same figure is wearing the primary colors also adds weight to the area. This work is a masterclass in element manipulation. It's too bad that there are so few Vermeers.

there's a newly discovered vermeer!

well, actually, there's a newly restored vermeer:

"woman reading a letter" is a vermeer in the collection of the gemaldegalerie, dresden. there was a blank wall behind the woman, much as in this picture, but x-ray photography has revealed that there was originally a painting of a cupid (or eros) hanging on that blank wall. it was long thought that vermeer painted it out, but now the conservators have established that the image was painted over some 30 years after vermeer's death. so they have decided to remove the over-painting and reveal the work as originally intended. it changes the subject (it's a love letter) a nd the atmosphere of the work. that same cupid appears on a wall in another vermeer, i think, a woman at a spinet (or harpsichord).

go to "vermeer dresden" for images of the "new" painting.

Tim Jenison is an independently wealthy tinkerer who decided to try to replicate the camera obscura used by Vermeer, and he ended up with a process that allowed him to paint in a similar way as Vermeer.

It's really good.

Switzerland adopted via referendum last week, the EU gun regulations. The Swiss had fairly liberal gun laws for an EU country , in that they mandated veterans to keep their army issued arms , etc. There was a small carve out for that to continue, however, obtaining weapons now as a citizen will be strictly regulated according to what Brussels demands.

The same idiotic gun ban and regulation that Obama signed up with via the UN, and Trump repealed our participation in at the NRA convention early this month.

b) it's only a local crime story

c) The republican won with close to 70% of the vote

If you answered c) you get . . . well you get an honorary Ewok award.

Now, I note that this HD is clearly a Republican stronghold and it was a very low turnout election. in the last actual election the Repub hit 66% and the Dem in the last election hit 34%. But the trend is verry interesting - as follows in % (rounded to nearest percentage):


2019 Special: R68 D32

2018 Regular: R66 D34

2016 Regular: R62 D38

2014 Regular: R59 D41

I mean - I'm no Karl Rove (heh) but I am definitely seeing a trend here and really across a whole lot of PA (I gave it a good look on balletopedia). As we all know Trump flipped a number of counties in PA from Obama to Repub/Trump and, if this is any indication, the trend continues and solidifies. Nothing I see from the Dem side is going to reverse this . . . not even "old white guy" Biden. And if they nominate Socialist Bernie or someone like Kamaltoe Harris I see these percentages as getting worse and, even with fraud in Philly, it will be a blood bath. Now there is a LOT of time between now and the Presidential election - and all Winston Wolf rules apply - but I like this trend right now.

Looked into this. It seems like this is the Swedish version of the "OK" finger sign being suddenly declared racist. Scandi-Supremacists were allegedly using certain runic symbols as cultural identifiers.

So, by banning them, the smart Swedish elites have figured out how to simultaneously surrender their cultural heritage to both Mohammedan immigrants and racists.

During the Satanic scare during the 80s/90s, a lot of Christian groups were pushing the idea that the peace symbol (chicken foot) was actually a Satanic symbol. Part of the initiation, so I heard when I was a kid, was you stole a Cross, turned it upside-down and broke the arms. And then the hippies adopted it as part of an anti-God movement.

244 121 ... Kris, Thanks for the analysis of the painting. I got side tracked by the colors, etc., and didn't consider the arrangement. Looking at it again with your comments in mind adds to the enjoyment.

When I did photography, one of my favorite aspects was setting up the scene of a still life. (I consider this scene to be sort of a still life.) Establishing the place of each figure and object for balance, color, and depth was fun. Then add to that making sure to include the appropriate items but not too much. It was like doing a first draft of creative writing then the rewrites. I can't draw or paint like Vermeer but I can enjoy the process that makes him so effective.

Pelosi allows the floor vote, but doesn't whip for it. The motion dies, everybody's angry.

268 Wikipedia: "A foot warmer is on the floor behind her"

Also:

According to art historian Harry Rand, the painting suggests the woman is making bread pudding, which would account for the milk and the broken pieces of bread on the table. Rand assumed she would have already made custard in which the bread mixed with egg would be soaking at the moment depicted in the painting. She pours milk into the Dutch oven to cover the mixture because otherwise the bread, if not simmering in liquid while it is baking, will become an unappetizing, dry crust instead of forming the typical upper surface of the pudding. She is careful in pouring the trickle of milk because bread pudding can be ruined when the ingredients are not accurately measured or properly combined.

By depicting the working maid in the act of careful cooking, the artist presents not just a picture of an everyday scene, but one with ethical and social value. The humble woman is using common ingredients and otherwise useless stale bread to create a pleasurable product for the household. "Her measured demeanor, modest dress and judiciousness in preparing her food conveys eloquently yet unobtrusively one of the strongest values of 17th-century Netherlands, domestic virtue", according to the Essential Vermeer website.

"In the end, it is not the allusions to female sexuality that give this painting its romance or emotional resonance — it is the depiction of honest, hard work as something romantic in and of itself," Raquel Laneri wrote in Forbes magazine. "The Milkmaid elevates the drudgery of housework and servitude to virtuous, even heroic, levels."[11]

Yeah, yeah, whatever, you overinflated critiquebag.

Agreed - to a very high extent that is true - but that's why I looked back through the trends in regular elections and provided them (and I note lots of PA counties look like this in the regular election stats of the past ten years). What I would posit is that the trend continues (albeit in a special election) that PA seems to be moving in a Redstate direction and that trend was not affected by the constant "Orangeman bad" drumbeat of the past two years. But - yes - as I said - all Winston Wolf rules apply and yes - it is only a special election . . . still . . . it's better than losing the special election!

Thanks. Unfortunately, Vermeer was not one of the Western artists I studied in real depth. Jacques-Louis David, yes. Caspar David Friedrich, sure. Michelangelo and Manet, OK. But not Vermeer. Oh well. Never too late tho. In that regard, he sounds a little like Leonardo. Lots of sketches and experimentation, not a lot of finished works.

The other thing about the Swiss was, they came up with all that tolerance crap because they had flat run out of stakes at which to burn each other. Most violent culture in Europe, at the peak of the Christian religious Troubles. Different strains of Protestants would burn each other, leaving the Catholics right out of it. And the Catholics, well, O Jesus.

I posted this last night but since we're talking about movies and shit . . .

Catch 22: I've watch the first three of six episodes.

First, the good news. It has a good, authentic look, including the combat scenes (although they often seem to fly awfully low). And, I think, the soundtrack is great, mostly the big band swing that those guys actually listen to.

The not so good news, it just doesn't capture the madcap chaos of the book and, largely, of the Alan Arkin film. One problem, is the structure. Part of the appeal of the novel, and it's one of my all time favorite novels, is the barely controlled chaos. Not only does the novel start in the middle and veer wildly forward and backward in time, often a paragraph would start talking about one thing and end up talking about another. (The Arkin movie started at the end then jumped around throughout Yossarian's tour.) This series starts at the beginning (stateside training) and, so far anyway, proceeds chronologically. That increases comprehension of the story arc but lacks the chaotic frenzy of the original. Similarly, Arkin played Yossarian as a rather hangdog, increasingly desperate guy. This Yossarian is a pretty boy, frat boy type known as "Yo-Yo". Again the frantic desperation is missing. I should also mention this Major Major Major Major can't hold a candle to Bob Newhart. Finally, this series is three times the length of the Arkin movie and yet doesn't seem to add much.

In short, this series turns the madcap, slapstick, dark terror comedy of the original into a much more conventional, often maudlin and sentimental, dramedy.

Incidentally, the book The Bridgebusters by Thomas McKelvie Cleaver tells the true story of author Joseph Heller's service. I was very surprised to learn that much of the most unbelievable parts of Catch 22 were true.

325 244 121 ... Kris, Thanks for the analysis of the painting. I got side tracked by the colors, etc., and didn't consider the arrangement. Looking at it again with your comments in mind adds to the enjoyment.

When I did photography, one of my favorite aspects was setting up the scene of a still life. (I consider this scene to be sort of a still life.) Establishing the place of each figure and object for balance, color, and depth was fun. Then add to that making sure to include the appropriate items but not too much. It was like doing a first draft of creative writing then the rewrites. I can't draw or paint like Vermeer but I can enjoy the process that makes him so effective.

Can you imagine the discord it would cause if the pop vote went a way that didn't favor them? Could they revoke the promise at the last minute?

Just another bald face power grab by the Dems. Creating chaos instead of a verifiable repeatable voting system.

Can' they imagne a situation in a legit popular vote where Trump skims 5M votes int CA NY and Other Blue states by campaigning the shit out of them? I guess that's why the Dems lobby to have it both ways.

Idiocy - the Barr Memo was only operative for two weeks, until the actual Mueller Report came out. I guess now he's all-in on Nadler's conspiracy theory, "it's the redacted grand jury testimony!

I should also mention this Major Major Major Major can't hold a candle to Bob Newhart. Finally, this series is three times the length of the Arkin movie and yet doesn't seem to add much. "

388 on guests who stay too long:

Amusing backstory to the slimy character of Uriah Heep, in Dicken's novel David Copperfield. (no not the band) The story is that Hans Christian Anderson visited London from his native Denmark and being a fellow writer, Dickens offered to put him up in his home. Well, Anderson was supposed to stay for a few days, days turned into weeks and weeks and weeks, all with Anderson making very humble sounding excuses but never leaving and driving Dickens out of his mind.

SO, when David Copperfield came out, everyone at the time who knew them recognized that by physical description and manner, Uriah Heep WAS Hans Christian Anderson, and was portrayed as one of the slimiest, most conniving, and most deceitful of any of Dickens' characters. (at one point David Copperfield looks at his hand in disgust after he's shaken Uriah Heep's hand)

Moral: Don't piss off a writer. You'll end up in his books.

It's now a race.

Once the Dem's rolled snake eye's on the Mueller report and Barr indicated he's going after the investigators, the Dem's determined their best course of action was to get impeachment going before the DOJ investigations come out in the hope of shaping the narrative that Trump/Barr are "retaliating" against the Dem's for their impeachment which, of course, would further justify impeachment proceedings.

478 Duke,

I had been going through the same thing with my 13 year old who is my stepson (basically raised him from 3 on) and we were really having a tough go since his Mom and I got a divorce. Through one ear and out the other, disrespect, etc.

I tried remembering that I didn't listen to a damn thing my father or mother said.

Just a thought. I started putting post it notes around his room ever few days with small notes of encouragement, values to live by, moral and ethical codes to live by, etc...


Pretty damn quick and simple to do without the drama or tension associated to communicating with a parent, but a gesture that seems like extra work but isn't.

Since then we still have some issues (Hell he's a teenager!) but even he's softened and the amazing thing it he's saved every single one of them on a wall in his room.Maybe try this direction?

495 Gaah, my boss is being a putz lately. He is stretched too thin and can't focus on things long enough to get up to speed. But I have limited sympathy for that situation because he wants to micro-manage, keep his hand in coding projects and things instead of trusting the team and stepping back. I understand fully wanting to continue doing a bit of coding as a break from talking to the agencies all the time and all that, but he doesn't have enough hours in the day to insist on being involved in the web programing, and the POD programming, and being the only one who travels out to install the special Rxs for the program. Then he feels insecure when a team member is doing a great job and starts undercutting them (not me, but I see him doing it to the person who should be made his #2 and given room to take care of things that he does not have time for.

I do not have skills in that kind of communication but will have to try to butter him up about all he is doing and then suggest he needs to delegate some things because we cannot afford for him to burn out - that is true, we'd be in a very hard spot if he had a heart attack or sumptin and the team had take over all he is doing until a replacement could be hired and brought up to speed. But we are in a bit of a hard spot now because he won't hand things off that are getting half assed because he doesn't have time for them that one or the other of the team could do if they would hire someone to handle low level repetitive tasks that sap our time needlessly.

Abortion is issue #1 because of the massive funding the PP can give them. If they don't have the ability to funnel government money back into campaigns, their ability to force their own livelihood as an important issue across the whole of the Democratic Party diminishes.

It's already happening with the unions, and it's going to accelerate in the face of Janus. As Unions have become less profitable, the Democratic Party has been less inclined to push for their priorities. When was the last time anyone talked about card check?

He would stand next to my bed and play Reveille on his imaginary trumpet and would not stop until I got out of bed.

I thought about smacking him a couple times until I remembered he would twist my head off and shit down my neck if I tried it. He had me boxed into a corner.

The rivulet of milk is a miracle of observation and rendering. It seems to twist and flow even as you look at it.
The whitewashed wall behind the woman is white at first glance; but if you look at it for a while, you'll see subtle shades of yellow, blue, pink, green. Another miracle of observation and rendering: to show the deep beauty of a simple whitewashed wall!

The details are amazing - the cracked window, the stained table, the footwarmer on the floor; the basket hung in the corner.

One could literally spend hours staring at this little painting - it's about 18" high by 16" wide - and not exhaust its beauty.

The Morning Report - 5/22/19

zarifoba.jpg

Good morning kids. Midweek and the beat goes on with the revelations about the failed phase 1 coup effort pre- and post-2016 by the Obama-Clinton-intel community to take down President Trump, phase 2 to take him down in Congress, abortion and the tensions with Iran seemingly near a breaking point.

First up, Margot Cleveland with two excellent reports over at the Federalist about more damning evidence of wanton FISA abuse by the Obama regime and Carter Page saying the spying on the Trump administration might have continued well past the election. Also, in the waning days of the Obama era, the video feed in the bunker was suddenly cut off as the discussion turned to the Russia investigation. Total fluke, no doubt, right? Meanwhile, world's largest pastrami sandwich Jerrold Nadler has subpoenaed former Trump staffers Hope Hicks and Annie Donaldson to abuse them and make them confess, Michael Cohen's testimony actually kills a popular Trump conspiracy theory, Justin Amash's backstabbing media whoring gets him a unanimous condemnation from the House Freedom Caucus and a primary challenger, looks like James Comey was a commie just like John Brennan, and while all of this is going on, real collusion committed by Obama and company in the run-up to 2016 vis a vis "Crossfire Hurricane" and lastly, Michael Ledeen with a friendly reminder that the Russians have always been meddling in our affairs and a great idea to declassify all the former KGB files we obtained after the fall of the Soviet Union that would expose some very prominent people and institutions as Communist stooges or willing agents.

To infanticide we go where the Democrats are looking to pass some sort of national edict that cements the right to kill babies at any stage of development up to and including peeking out from erstwhile momma's hoo-hoo. Unfortunately for them, there's this document called the Constitution and the principle known as federalism that prevents that. Okay, you can stop laughing at me. Meanwhile, a baby-killer with a medical school degree takes to the pages of Slim's Slimes to intone Orwellian slogans that sort of fly in the face of reason, and finally a look at a "third party standing" case in Louisiana that could have major ramifications vis a vis a challenge to Roe at SCOTUS.

On to the flare-up with the Farsis where that country is now ramping up uranium enrichment, seemingly as a test of our reaction to it and for practical reasons to get an A-bomb that much faster (Stuxnet 2, Mossad Boogaloo notwithstanding), Daniel Greenfield telling us now that Trump is C-in-C the neocons are distinctly anti-war/showdown with the Iranians, John Kerry bff Javad Zarif threatens Trump, or something, but the UK foreign secretary says not to test OrangeManBad and naturally, the Democrats take a pro-Iran stance in all of this and are seeking out the advice of the man who helped create the nihilistic, armageddon-seeking mad theocracy in the first place: James Earl Carter. Look, the regime in Iran has got to go, both for the peace of the world and more importantly our own national security interests (meh once you have the latter, the former falls into place more or less). That said, considering the past 30 years of the madness of nation-building, I am loathe to go down that road. But Iran has got to be neutralized. Of that I am equally certain. I will leave it to Trump and his team to figure out how to do it. Considering he has done things in complete opposition to conventional wisdom - and the globalist elite - in other areas and has succeeded, I have faith that he can solve this situation.

Moving to amnesty and immigration, Trump taps Ken Cuccinelli to oversee immigration policy, Ben Carson makes Dem heads explode with his wanting to boot illegal aliens from public housing, two illegal alien teens charged with murder were previously released by the sanctuary state of Maryland. May their spark of humanity ignite Nancy Pelosi's botox.

On to the Democrat Scandal Sheet and Joo-Hate Roundup where, after shooting her mouth off about holding businesses accountable for equal pay for women, Kamala-Toe Harris once again lets her hypocrisy show by paying women staffers less than their male counterparts. Then, hundreds of protesters gathered in Times Square to rail against Democrat rising star Bro-Fo Omar, who went on to crow that the nation's two loudest Muslim women are in Congress. True that, tragically.

Elsewhere, and equally hypocritical, the 2020 Dems are railing against corporate money as they rake it in from Wall Street on the down low, Nancy Palsi is doing her best to tamp down the impeachment talk which is falling on deaf ears to the likes of Steve "chicken-fucker" Cohen who accuses Trump of "raping the country," or something, Salena Zito takes a look at the other end of the Potomac from DC and yes, Kamala-Toe's contradictions indeed.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: Open letter posted by a Google engineer creates quite a reaction, new report links HuffPo and the Guardian to anti-American front group SPLC and Antifa terrorists, the real journalists who exposed Planned Parenthood take a hit in court, and Rachel Madoff's ratings lower than Bernie's scrotum on an August night in Burma.

Foreign Desk: Beyond Iran, former Czech prexy Vaclav Klaus makes a surprise visit to a Brexit rally, US warnings about Assad prepping new chemical weapons attacks, US Navy sends another warship into Chi-Com claimed waters, the Chi-Coms debut an anti-American trade war tune, and the so-called "Palestinians" reject US calls to participate in an economic conference in Bahrain.

Domestic News: How to pay for $2 trillion in infrastructure with this one neat trick, new lyric idea for Randy Nemwan's I Love LA, Federal efforts at terrorism prevention found woefully lacking and an example fo the feral Deep State in, of all places, NASA.

The Economy: Millennials are the first generation to be economically behind the 8 ball, the insanity that is universal basic income, Dunkin Donuts saw what Starbuck's did and said no thank you, and one small but important example about how Trump's tariffs and "trade war" are working, unlike what the globalists tell you.

Education: Michelle Malkin on Harvard's diversity madness and the equally insane NYC Board of Ed anti-white brainwashing efforts.

Hither and Yon: First the abortion law and now Alabama Public TV is refusing to air the homosexual wedding of that Arthur kid show makes Leftist heads explode, this Game of Thrones controversy of which I am interested not one whit, Christian Toto on Leftist retribution against Meghan McCain for humiliating Seth Meyers, report shows religious couples have happier marriages, David Harsanyi on the myth of poor, poor Millennials, exploding yet again the myth of socialism, despite the alarming news that young people are hot and horny to have it, and the absolute lack of intellectual heft on the Left.

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

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.

Them, and the "Red for Ed" crowd. I've had it up to here with the continuous self-pitying wails of public education teachers. You want higher remuneration? How's about you purge yourselves of your layers of barnacle-like administration?

In the private sector, being in a "burden" (i.e. overhead) position meant you were marked to be first to go whenever things turned downward. In public education, "burden" positions are worn like badges of honor.

53 AG Barr slammed lower district courts yesterday for issuing nationwide injunctions against Trump's agenda. These injunctions are not legal but it takes a lot of time to work their way through the courts to SCOTUS. He gives an example of a CA judge but I think the most famous of these is the one from HI. I think almost all of the illegal injunctions have been issue by Obama judges but there may have also been a few Clinton judges mixed in there. In general, district judge rulings are supposed to apply only to their district. But the only way to stop these illegal actions is for congress to act. That will never happen.

68 Interesting conversation with a few Democrats at an event last night. They are worried Biden will become the nominee. I was shocked and asked why. They said first he is too old and a guy who is almost 80 is just not the right person for the job. He won't have the stamina to do the job, or even campaign enough to win. They also feel his positions have been all over the map and he's very prone to being seen as an indecisive, doddering, old fool. They are really worried about the China and Ukraine stuff and believe there is enough things in his background that it will just dribble out right up until election day. Biden also supported a lot of the policies that led to jobs being offshored and entire industries, especially ones mostly with blue collar workers, being devastated. This is going to make his whole "I'm one of you" pitch seem like a cheap sales job trying to dupe people. Lastly, they know he's prone to making huge mistakes when speaking to the press or being challenged. They know that's why his handlers are keeping him away from the press. They ultimately don't believe he can carry any of the key states. The only exception they thought was maybe, maybe he could hoodwink enough people in PA. THen I said to them- "but he's beating Trump by double-digits in every poll". *Eyerolls* lol

That article includes this: 'Remarkably, Brennan even suggested he had been a member of the Communist Party. He recalled telling the polygrapher: "I said, 'I'm not a member of the Communist Party,' so the polygrapher looked at me and said, 'OK,' and when I was finished with the polygraph and I left and said, 'Well, I'm screwed.'"'

That raises the question in my mind if he (Brennan) isn't still in with his old Kremlin friends, who are presumably now on the outs with Putin (who branched out on his own.)

Wow. How many states does that make now? If I lived in one of these states that are bypassing the EC in favor of the popular vote, I would be incandescent. I cannot believe these states' residents stand for this. They are throwing their importance in the presidential elections right into the toilet. And this all stems from the media's breathless hysteria following Trump's shock win wherein they could not and would not let go of Hillary winning this popular vote. They also know that, behind the scenes, they are planning on mass voting by illegals in 2020.

His first article is all about, get this, the evils of elitism and how Dems have to demonstrate they really are the party of the working stiff if they expect to win in 2020. I also stumbled across an article from In These Times -- a very left-leaning site -- saying that Emanuel is the embodiment of the very elitism he criticized and that he's full of crap...

88 I've seen several good interpretations of the GoT finale.

The first is that the show was about the Stark family, and a such, the finale has the Starks ruling the world: Bram has the 6 kingdoms, Sansa has the North, Jon has beyond the wall (Wilding country) and Arya is off to conquer the new world. Yay Stark's Ned's legacy endures.

The other interpretation was really dark, in that Bram is inhabited by an immortal being (3-eyed crow or whatever), and by giving him a lifetime position he will rule forever, thus returning the original inhabitants (the forest children that created the original white walker) to the throne.


*Apologies for mangling names/terms - I didn't watch the show closely or retain a lot of that world's history.
