"Horrible and Cowardly" ISIS Attack on Sufi Mosque in Egypt Kills 235

The attack was made with guns and bombs.

Children in a creche were killed.

This is probably because ISIS was upset about Trump overfeeding koi.

The Sexual Harassment Apocalypse... Why Now?

I'm old enough to remember when the progressive left first weaponized sexual harassment. It occurred during the early 90s when they thought they could use it to keep a conservative judge, Clarence Thomas, from SCOTUS.

And it almost worked; the Senate vote was very close.

That was when I first heard assertions such as: women don't lie about sexual harassment, women are always to be believed, and even the mere accusation of such crimes is sufficient to banish someone from public office. I don't remember hearing these assertions even being debated, they were just put forth as settled facts.

Of course, all that suddenly changed during the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal, but that's another story.

But right now, the left is reeling from one hammer blow after another as women are lining up to claim that this Democratic senator, donor, or media figure tried to grope me, rape me, or ram his tongue down my throat.

So the question is, why now, in 2017, is the house of cards that the left has been building and expanding for over two decades suddenly starting to collapse on them?

(Yes, I know two Republicans have also been caught up in this. But Barton probably didn't do anything illegal, and in fact, may have been the victim of revenge porn, and the case against Moore is looking more shakier each day)

This longish blog post over at Bookworm's site attempts to explain how we got here by starting with the moral collapse of the 1960s. It's an interesting read.

Another good article is Sex, Power, Weakness and Evil on The Other McCain blog, which deals with a number of related images, including this sobering admonition for humility:

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,” Jesus taught His disciples to pray. Knowing our own weakness — “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” — Christians ought to be humble, and to fear any situation that might tempt us to sin. Are you a stronger or more virtuous man than Bill Clinton? You ought to hesitate before answering “yes,” lest the Devil decide to prove you wrong.

Me, I think God is just forcing the Democrats to play by their own rules. They've sewn the wind, now they're reaping the whirlwind.

------

I've always believed that Hillary can only be understood in a religious context, i.e. in terms of her religious upbringing. This is what I'm talking about:

"Hillary Clinton is part of the problem."

It is important to remember that she came from a prosperous Republican family. Her father was a successful businessman and in 1964, young Hillary Rodham was a "Goldwater Girl." Unfortunately, she was also a Methodist, and came under the influence of a church youth leader with a "social justice" outlook. She was swept along in the general leftward drift of the Methodist Church (like all WCC denominations) and also internalized the generational narcissism of the Baby Boomers.

Bright young people in the 1950s and '60s were repeatedly told that their generation were the future leaders of America. Their heads were filled with a lot of slogans about "democracy," "freedom" and "equality" and they weren't taught much about skepticism and humility. It would have been better for them if they had been given more good old-fashioned Calvinism, but instead their education turned them into fools, ready to believe in a lot of utopian dreams.

In a society where liberalism prevails among the academic elite, the more education you get, the more of a hopeless fool you become. By the time she went off to Wellesley, Hillary was already on the wrong path, and no one she encountered at college, or later at Yale Law, did anything to correct her path.

You can take the girl out of the religion, but you can't take the religion out of the girl.

Also,

"In a society where liberalism prevails among the academic elite, the more education you get, the more of a hopeless fool you become."

...is a great quote.

And let's not forget:

1997

Feb. 28: After she attended the taping of Clinton's radio show, she had her picture taken with him. He told her to see his secretary Betty Currie because he had something for her. Currie accompanied Lewinsky into the study next to the Oval Office. Then Currie walked into the nearby pantry, where she waited for about 15 minutes while Lewinsky and the president had a sexual encounter -- their first in 11 months...Lewinsky later discovered that the blue dress she had worn that day was stained with his semen.

And if she hadn't kept that blue dress (which was later used as the basis for a DNA test), the Clintons would be lying about Bill's many and various schtuppings TO THIS DAY. In order to get them to admit the truth, the hard evidence of their lying had to be shoved right into their smug, self-righteous faces. No, it's not a vast right-wing conspiracy, Mrs. Clinton, the DNA test results say otherwise.

I am once again reminded how thankful I am that Hillary Clinton will never be president.

Funny how things haven't really changed. Look at this pull quote from a 1991 Chicago Tribune article I linked below:

"it is time for our elected officials to act like men and not overgrown fraternity boys who use political position as the ultimate pickup line. And it's time for us to be realistic about the inevitable nexus between the personal and the political, about the essential contradiction between voting on issues that empower women and seeing them as inflatable dolls in private."

Some things never change.

26 Well, fwiw, my theory is that it was the election of PDT that set this all off - but not the way you might think.
For years and decades, no one spoke up because it was useless. It was just How Things Are; the people committing these crimes had the unquestioned power to make or break the victims. They were not going away, so you had to make your peace with it all as best you could.
The election of PDT was not supposed to happen. It couldn't happen, we were told daily. But it did. It was the crack in the facade that gave everyone the fleeting thought that the power of the oppressors might not be eternal after all. I think this happened at an unconscious level even for Democrats, at least ones with vestigial souls.

33 Good afternoon, OM. Hope the rehab continues apace.

Religion may have exposed HRC to an SJW mindset and later education reinforced, or at least did not contradict, it. But I believe she wants power and the money that goes with it as her right and obsession. And she chose to take a completely immoral path to achieve this. I believe there is nothing she wouldn't do to get what she "deserves'. The end justifies any means.

If this sounds like a defintion of Satan, I won't argue. This creature and those like her are as evil as anything in human history.

Yah, God has nothing to do with this. Credit Trump supporters during the primary/election who didn't take the bait after the Billy Bush tapes came out.

The libs looked to take a second shot at PDT but forgot one thing....never trust a woman to do the right thing if fame or notoriety as a victim is available. They don't care who the supposed perp is as long as the end result is "Look at me! I am courageous!"

My suggestion for these accused guys is to point and name all of the women who were ON BOARD with what was being offered. Sex for fame/power. Oh the cat fights that would ensue. "Your a liar!" "Well, your a whore!" etc.

44 I think the reason it happened now is that the Dems beat the drum for "women!" because they thought it would help Hillary, because appealing to women was the centerpiece of her campaign (partly because she didn't have anything else to run on), and they thought Trump was vulnerable on that score.

Their problem was that what started out as a bullshit campaign trope became self-aware, and lots of women who really HAD been mistreated took it seriously and went public with their squawks.

Once that smug, self-righteousness manifested itself in church ladies and preachers waving their bony fingers in everyone's face telling them that God was going to send them to Hell for this or that....
Then when they discovered activism, they simply applied that moralizing to the new social justice concerns and went about it with a typical missionary's zeal.

This was a big fat honking signal to male sleaze bags that as long as they supported infanticide by tortuous dismemberment (Which suited them just fine, BTW, because who wants to pay support for some whore's kid, amirite??) , they could pretty much do whatever they wanted to those women--including rape, and any other vile debased behavior that suited their sick fancies.

Leftist woman bought and paid for their own mistreatment at the hands of scumbags with the blood and shattered tissue of their unborn children.

Advice to my conservative male associates: I'll repeat my too-often spoken mantra that 'Sexual Harassment' is just plain old harassment of a sexual nature. No man wants his wife, girlfriend or daughter subjected to harassment of a sexual nature by a guy who won't take 'not interested' as a clue.

Guys get one chance to seal the deal, whether it be coffee, the date, or permission to continue. If the answer is 'no' -- take it elsewhere. Ask a second time and you're looking at a harassment charge. As a former employer in charge of training guys who used to be pretty outrageous they 'got it' when I explained it this way.

The best defense against unfair claims is the 'Pence defense'. Always have witnesses around. When I taught, and a single child walked into the classroom, I immediately stepped into the hallway. Common sense -- in todays climate.

I can't really imagine what she'd be like if she won. Certainly not magnanimous. C.S Lewis had the right idea:

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised
for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be
better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral
busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity
may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own
good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of
their own conscience."

But it would be much worse.

It's the end result of the Victimhood Era. Every lefty wants-no, NEEDS to be a victim. So we get to the point where, for example, Melissa Gilbert claims to have been sexually assaulted because she auditioned for a part as a groupie and was expected...to act the part of a groupie.

Or like the 'ron yesterday who told the story of a social media acquaintance who prefaces everything with "as the victim of sexual assault" when the "sexual assault" was someone once telling a dirty joke in her general vicinity.

78 yeah Trump being elected moved things along, but mostly Hillary losing power. The pedophile island thing was pretty open and brash ... and human trafficking via open borders ... ISIS taking over cities and raping and selling slaves ... Europe being overrun with molesters

Not all of that is fixed, but it seemed to be coming to a crescendo. No happy ending for them ... real change maybe. Now the witnesses feel they won't get suicided if they come out.

Of course it was also a weapon against Trump and Moore (even if mostly fake), but that also may have encouraged women to come out and testify.

Or maybe Dems just feel they need a new start ... Clintons and Weiner and Weinstein types must be kicked to the curb.

I mean, if you can frame Romney, probably the most decent human being ever to run for office, as a low-life cad, you can smear anybody. Trump was the only one who showed the cojones to punch back, hard. And for that reason, I thought he was the only one who stood a chance.

'IMO the spite comes from losing and thus pleases me.'

There was plenty of evidence of this aspect of her character from the very start of Bill Clinton's presidency. She was cruel to soldiers and others she despised for ideological reasons, but she was also viciously cruel to White House staff and to loyal Democrat administration workers.

111 It would have been better for them if they had been given more good old-fashioned Calvinism, but instead their education turned them into fools, ready to believe in a lot of utopian dreams.

========

Methodists are about as far as you can get from Calvinism, being founded by John Wesley, staunch supporter of Arminianism.

Fun fact:
Methodists in America have been jonesing to move leftwards for decades and follow in the Episcopal Church's footsteps. The problem is, that they have a democratic polity, and their evangelism in Africa was so successful that large numbers of African Methodists actually believe what the bible says, and resist American efforts to pervert the religion. But American liberals never give up, so who knows how it will end?

She was expecting a coronation after slaughtering Jeb Bush for daring to run against her. Trump screwed that up and Hillary was literally the pooch getting screwed.

It is my understanding that no one was really advising her. She thought it was in the bag and just condescended to be loaded into that unmarked ambulance and wheeled from place to place to appear before her adoring fans. I knew the jig was up when she was being met by crowds of dozens and Trump was speaking to several crowds daily of more that 10,000 to 15,000 a day with folks standing in the cold and rain to listen to him on loudspeakers.

142 It is important to remember that she came from a prosperous Republican family. Her father was a successful businessman and in 1964, young Hillary Rodham was a "Goldwater Girl." Unfortunately, she was also a Methodist, and came under the influence of a church youth leader with a "social justice" outlook. She was swept along in the general leftward drift of the Methodist Church

========

She might have been "swept along" at first, like many of us had been when in high school or college. But if she were really smart or possessed any moral integrity she should have snapped out of it at some point, especially seeing as how her whole professional life was concerned with legal and political matters. I can understand a casual libtard, whose profession doesn't involve politics, not giving the matter much thought although he's smart. Hillary doesn't have that excuse. I think she's always been an opportunistic sleaze.

The thing is that everyone knew he had always lied about that stuff. That was never in doubt. People just didn't care about what he did of that he told bald-faced lies about it.

What happened to America is that we grew to have a great tolerance for liars - and not just regular liars, but the worst most ridiculous sorts of liars. Barky was the ultimate in this; he told the most retarded and outlandish lies and was still treated well by the whole left and most of the ostensible right.

It used to be that exposed liars were tagged as such and dismissed from polite society. People would not only be offended by the lies but would be triply offended if the lies were just too ridiculous to even be able to lie about believing. That all disappeared. And that is what happened to this society.

I'd also add that Bill Clinton may not have ever actually sexually harassed Monica Lewinsky because she was a willing participant.

I didn't read the entire Starr Report, so I can't say with 100% certainty, but in one footnote it's mentioned she tossed his salad. So I'm gonna stick with 'willing participant'.

get pregnant." And 3 months later they were gone. I had one working

.My wife started as an ASH in the corrosion control shop on the flight line at Roosey Roads on the night shift for three years. She applied for Legalman when that rate came into being and got picked. Wound up doing 20 years and made E8 and was on the short list for the first female Master Chief Legalman when we packed it in.

Been there and did that with women in the Navy and saw the good and the bad, just like I did with men. And yes we did have some that joined the Navy just to get pregnant, married and discharged. But one thing I did notice, I can only remember kicking one woman out of the Navy for drugs or misconduct in my 21 years.

171 It's so much fun to watch Hillary, stumble around, listening to comments about her husband Jiz, and all of his misdeeds. The accusers are the very people who laughed at the criticisms of Jiz in the '90's.

Today's criticisms of Jiz are so transparent it's almost unwatchable. Now Hillary knows that all the plastic condemnations of Jiz are all about about getting her tired ass out of the way.

I hope she stays around for another decade.

177 Why now?


My two cent analysis is this. They went atomic on Trump, with the set up by Andy Vanderbilt in the debates doing the Joe Pesci from My Brother Vinny.

"Arrrrrre you surrrrrrre you want to stick with that answer Mr Trump? Are you 100% Suuuuuurrrrrree?" when he asked him if he ever acted inappropriately with women.

At that moment I knew what was coming the next day. The heavy artillery was wheeling around to broadside; and a full salvo of Gloria Alred was released on him.

Andy Vanderbilt knew it too. He was part of it; part of the complete and utter destruction of Donald Trump. Andy the King Maker sets him up and Gloria Alred releases the hounds. Just watch the epic collapse.

But when the smoke cleared from the absolutely withering initial blast, Trump stood there with his tiny fist all balled up, with a smile, looking for a dick to punch. He punched and punched and punched. That's when I was a complete convert. I thought, "Holy shit he's gonna play by the dems rules!!"

And then he won, and has continued to survive by playing by their rules, even against the RINO's Why not the Rinos role is to fold anyway.


I am almost done here. .......bear with me.


So now that the old dem playbook has been stolen by Trump and being used against them. All these lefty women are like wait what????!!! "If I let these big giant lefty perverts molest me and they can't deliver the goodies anymore, aren't they actually the beta boys? Are we the actual chumps in this deal???? I don't give it up for betas. I AM NOT A CHUMP!"

"Stupid piece o sh1t fukcers! Screw you! You all lied!"

I'd also add that Bill Clinton may not have ever actually sexually harassed Monica Lewinsky because she was a willing participant.

I didn't read the entire Starr Report, so I can't say with 100% certainty, but in one footnote it's mentioned she tossed his salad. So I'm gonna stick with 'willing participant'.

If she had ever said 'No' -- even once, that changes the equation.

That wasn't the point. Paula Jones was attempting to prove sexual harassment in her lawsuit. So, she wanted to show that Clinton had a pattern and practice of hitting on his employees.

That Lewinski said yes was irrelevant to what Jones needed to establish: that Jones wasn't just making up Clinton's behavior. Which is why Clinton lied in his deposition in claiming he never hit on the help.

Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara at November 24, 2017 04:11 PM (YqDXo)


I think Weinstein put the arm on Hollywood types to contribute the same way he got actresses to cooperate. The Or Else was implied or spelled out.

When Hillz went down a lot of people complained about it, and I am pretty sure Weinstein told them he had told them to shut up or else, so or else it was.

It wasn't so much revenge as it was self defense from what that vicious son of a bitch had shown he was capable of doing.

The others are small fry, but rape and harassment is just as big to the victim, and the lesson from Weinstein was that anyone could fall.

There is also that nasty understanding by liberals that when the game is going you can be a victim or you can be on top, and the way to be on top is to be the one denouncing the others for the thought crime de-jour before they can do you in turn.

If I recall correctly, Paula Jones received a large pile of money ($800,000 ?) with no admission of guilt from Clinton.

215 I read everything about the Clinton scandal while it was happening.

The part I found actually scary: Lewinsky said that Bill Clinton would have her pleasure him orally but he would not allow himself to ejaculate. She had some kind of messed-up "love" for him (not sure what word to use there, but in her mind there was a chance he was going to leave Hillary and they could openly be together) and she said that she really wanted him to start finishing. The first time he did was the day she got his semen on the blue dress.

Why did I find this scary? I realized that Bill Clinton had worked out a Standard Operating Procedure for how to sexually use women without them getting any physical evidence. If he never got his DNA on any blue dress, it's their word against his word.

How screwed up does a man have to be to have worked out an SOP for sexually using women and being able to deny it?

Must have been nice for him when all the prominent feminists (including senior people at the National Organization for Women) helped defend him. (Use women sexually and NOW has your back... if your name is Clinton.)

14 Libertarianism, rightly understood, is a viable theory of the state and its relationship with the citizen. Unfortunately, it has become a shell of itself, outside of a few thinkers who are by no means popular with self-identified libertarians (LOLbertarians). It's a shame - it seems a natural fit for a free people, as once we were and might become again.

Much like what happened to the TEA party movement... the media chose the Libertarian spokesmen... who then defined the Libertarian movement.

Froze it... and then marginalized it...


So, what do you call someone who wants a strong military, closed borders, rule of a few JUST laws... smaller government... and a much smaller Foreign Policy?

Because the 'Conservative' voices out there certainly don't want many of those things...

37 I am a libertarian, but I'm not sure I can forgive Stossel that mustache.

Someone in the last thread talked about a story in the Krautish media which I didn't find and forget what it was because I got distracted by an argument about cod fishing regulations.

The tragedy of the commons is the reason that libertarians do support environmental regulation. If everyone can scoop up all the cod until they're gone, then they're gone, and the responsible fishers don't benefit.

Also, omg, the East Sea cod they were catching are tiny. New England and Maritime Canada cod stocks have been devastated and even at our worst no one kept cod that small. Unless there's something entirely different about East Sea cod genetics they're about a week away from not having any fish.

Other capitalist benefit of environmental regulations is pollution. Factory A sends its waste to the waste fairies who cleanse it for $100. Factory B dumps its waste in the river and can sell its products for $100 less. Its not as if the cost has gone away, the cost is being borne by the river. This cost is called an externality.

So, good work Stossel, but for god's sake please shave.

39 When I listen to what most libertarians have to say, I usually agree with about 75% of their views, but find the other 25% to be absolutely insane. When they talk about less taxes, less regulation, less bureaucracy, I'm right there with them. But then they have to go and talk about open borders and how we shouldn't have police and fire departments.

Right after the end of communism I had a viable career and was running around East Germany visiting factories. One was a textile mill.

I asked what they do about waste water treatment:

"Oh, it's true that if you look in the river you can tell whether we're dying red or green today, but you can't see the river from here".

OK, what about air pollution?

"The smoke stack is 50 meters high".

92 Great video. My husband, being from a town in Massachusetts that was settled by Plymouth colonists who found that Plymouth was getting too crowded, loves to use this story as an example of why socialism doesn't work. Period.

Posted by: bluebell


Heh. I've mentioned before that your husband's town has a graveyard with a headstone from 1624. I like to think that the Puritans were so annoying that it only took four years for him to run away and die a few miles up the coast.

(In fact there were fishing outposts all over the area before Plymouth was established).

Here's a pic of the headstone. I love old headstones with the scare skulls and stuff on them.

94 It is interesting that there is a great example of this right in the middle of Progressive Town USA New York City. The common area called Central Park was in bad shape and became an eyesore and crime-ridden place. Some wealthy New Yorkers (I think Stossel helped) created a private corp. to raise funds to manage Central Park. The City eventually turned over the care and operations of the Park to the private firm. They have even allowed private companies to lease areas to build (at their cost) shops, restaurants, and other businesses.

I have new plates and getting the rusted screws out of the old plates was a nightmare. In fact on one, we had to cut the plate b/c the screw wouldn't release. Actually, the screw is still in there I think.

We used WD40 liberally to get the others out.

But any good advice? I can have some guy do it, but I hate that. They are L.P. for goodness sake. Not the transmission.

So, bottom line, rustproof screws for L.P.s?

If you're going to invoke the deity here, mind examining what else He issued in that regard? Hint: This little, too-often forgotten thing called "stewardship". A nice concept that, the idea that you take care of a thing so that you can make use of it, but future generations can, too. Not "strip it bare". Not "hands off forever". Show some self-discipline and everybody wins.

It does, of course, need some provision for what happens when someone won't go along with it...and that's where libertarianism, whether sanctioned by the divine or the merely mortal, tends to fall down.

117 Nathaniel Philbrick wrote a great book about the Pilgrims and their difficulties getting from there to here, and their very bad times once they got here. It's called Mayflower.

When Governor Bradford finally gave each family their own plot of land, Philbrick says that entire families came out and worked their land, because they saw the value in having extra to sell and trade. The American work ethic was born. Though the Pilgrims had many more difficulties, they never again went hungry.

127 all I need to care about is who owns the military. If I can get them to fight on my behalf, I can fish anywhere, and pee in the stream.

There are many externalities, especially in crossing borders. But since we are fighting wars and providing welfare for the poor, I'd at least like to see there be motivation for moving out of the welfare class and UP to the working class. And every step UP in work and effort should see better life.

As is, many are comfortable on welfare, and there are some levels of income (iirc) where making more has tax penalties.

Which has its virtues, but also a nasty habit of descending into "might makes right".

Ultimately, if you control the territory, control the resources, control the wealth, and control the armed men to assure the first three, you are a government, whatever you call yourself. The cycle is as old as time. Pretending you can ever freeze it in one place for more than a couple of generations is a fool's conceit, sadly. That said, working to make sure the wheel turns back to the good things is no sin.

148 The tragedy of the commons is the reason that libertarians do support
environmental regulation. If everyone can scoop up all the cod until
they're gone, then they're gone, and the responsible fishers don't
benefit.


The thing about the commons is that if a community does own it in common, generally it regulates itself, because if it doesn't the stocks crash and everyone is out of a living.

The problems occur when outsiders come in to make a killing, when there are subsidies where the catch is less important than actually catching, or there is serious economic problems that mean the participants have the choice to over -fish or starve.

There is such a thing as "economic extinction" of fishing stocks, that is where the catch is less than the cost of catching it, and the cost the fishers have to charge to keep going is so high the consumers won't pay it. Historically, with traditional fishing techniques, the economic extinction level left enough for the stocks to recover. Now I'm not so sure.

Government subsidies or supports make the actual cost unimportant, and only make the catching and important, that leads to overfishing

160 Gumdrop Gorilla -

Put a little Vaseline on the screws when you put them in next time.

I put petroleum jelly on the base of any new light bulb that I install, and when they burn out, they can be removed without breaking off in your hand. This works especially well outdoor bulbs, which get really stuck after a few years. Put it just on the threads, not the electrical connection part on the bottom of the bulb.

I'd expect it to work for screws too. There is some reaction between unlike metals that causes them to get seriously stuck. I'm sure one of the Morons can explain this problem. If you put petroleum jelly on the screw, the two metals never actually touch. Done and dusted!

They sell nylon screws and nuts for that purpose, but I don't like them, because in extremely cold weather, the nylon screws can snap, and you lose a plate.
Most auto supply stores now sell plastic snap-in captive nuts, along with self-tapping hex head screws to go into them, expressly for mounting license plates, and most new cars are equipped with some version of that. Even if the screws become rusted, you can get them out of the plastic nuts. And the cold brittleness is not a problem.

I give you, the Sea of Azov, ruined by Stalin era dam building and a stupid irrigation project to grow cotton, the was an ecological and economic disaster.

One of the truly great ecological disasters of the 20th century.

Air and water pollution in the PRC (it's turrible!), in Eastern Europe when ruled by communism, and especially East Germany. Burning all that cheap brown coal, what a dirty fuel. And those 2 -cycle Trabants.

174 Pretty anything you can buy in mild steel can be found in stainless. Try a auto shop, and if that doesn't pan out try a hardware store.

The main issue is finding the right fastener, some cars will take a lag-bolt and others need a machine screw of some sort.

'Course I once asked a mechanic to drill and tap a diamond plate bumper and used a bolt and lock-washer because I was tired of faffing around with plate holders that kept breaking.

182 Yeah Russia's pollution is horrendous. I remember a special in the National Geographic that showed pollution across the USSR, and Russia looked like a biohazard. I don't know if its ever been cleaned up but there's an entire lake not far from Moscow that is radioactive. Just a dump for radioactive waste. China is at least as bad if not worse, certainly their air pollution is incredibly bad.

204 I thought the video was brilliant and shows how on a small scale we can use the "tragedy of the commons" scenario in order to demonstrate the absurdity of socialism.

But I think on a larger scale, leftists are using a type of "tragedy of the commons" argument against us and in favor of socialism.

Consider climate change. "We all live on one planet! And here you Americans are inflicting climate terrorism on third world nations!"

In other words, they'll say the Earth is our "common" field and we can't escape that and insulate other nations from our carbon terrorism. Therefore there must be worldwide governance (like the Paris accord) to usurp what was formerly the decision making powers of sovereign nations.

They take the tragedy of the commons, expand it to a worldwide scenario, and then propose their own bozotic solution to it.

Of course they are full of horseshit since they are inventing non-existent problems and actually hurt third world countries by hobbling economic development. I'm just pointing out another stupid trick of theirs.

In my fishing travels I met a writer named Fen Montaigne who wrote a book called Reeling in Russia. I liked him, I like Russia, I love fishing. What could go wrong?

He was a newspaper correspondent stationed in Russia and decided that he'd make a cross-country trek through the whole continental nation and fish its untouched waters, Siberia and all that. He figured that with its vastness there must be huge amounts of pristine water.

Yeah, no. Everywhere he went there were tailings from mines, leaking petroleum pipes, whatever you can do to ruin a waterway the commies had done no matter where he travelled.

This is what is so hopeless and depressing about Islam. They use artificial selection to weed out any people who are open to a non-sociopathic form of Islam, just as we use artificial selection to get animal and plant breeds we want. Besides the religion itself, this is why I think it is irreformable. All the reasonable strains are being bred out.

William Lane Craig bases his primary argument for the existence of God on the work of an 11th century Islamic philosopher. Al-Ghazali, a Sufi. The culture went all downhill from there, and now the dominant species is ISIS.

The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

You know the guy who brings me food? I don't throw poo at him. I may be a chimp, but I'm not stupid. So why does the Left despise the very society that has allowed it to flourish? That seems stupid, and I will definitely throw poo at them.

This is a long and interesting refutation of the Left's intellectual underpinnings.
The Unified Field Theory of Madness
It is well titled, because let's face it, starting with their God -- Marx -- the logic behind Leftism is laughably, pathetically flawed.

Do not be deceived: Leftism is an enigma. We need a theorem that explains not one or two aspects of Leftism, but all their traits.

The theory must explain, first, the honest decency of the modern liberals combined with their astonishing indifference, nay, hostility to facts, common sense, and evidence; second, it must explain their high self-esteem (or, to be blunt, their pathological narcissism) combined not merely with an utter lack of accomplishment, but with their utter devotion to destructiveness, a yearning to ruin everything they touch; third, it must explain their sanctimoniousness combined with their applause, praise, support, and tireless efforts to spread all perversions (especially sexual), moral decay, vulgarity, and every form of desecration; fourth, their pretense of intellectual superiority combined with their notorious mental fecklessness; fifth, it must explain both their violence and their pacifism; sixth, the theory must explain why they hate the very things they should love most; seventh, the theory must explain why they are incapable of comprehending an honest disagreement or any honorable foe.

And, while we are at it, if we could also explain why the Rich, who are routinely vilified by the Left number among its most ardent supporters, or the secular Jews, our theory would be very potent in its explanatory power.

Just spend a little time with the Labor Theory Of Value and you will discover how positively nutty and stupid Karl Marx was. Adam Smith was a fan of the labor theory, but Marx twisted it to his own ends; reducing it to the point of absurdity. It is one thing to suggest that objects that require equal amounts of labor should trade at the same value, but it is an altogether different thing to assume that additional labor will add additional value. That's just...stupid! There are many flaws in the argument, and it is instructive to bat a leftist around using any number of the rational counter-arguments that anyone with any observational and intellectual power can create.

50 I blame it going back to Rousseau's belief in "appropriateness" based on perceived outcome justifying any action no matter how vile and repressive, and John Stewart Mill's perversion of "freedom" into freeing individuals from societal constraints with the final goal of destroying those elements of society he knew little of disapproved of.

Now, Smith had that view of the producers and the cost of production as setting prices, as if goods were valued by the amount of sweat put into them, but he never could get around the problem that if you were to make very expensive things at great cost, no one actually will pay you anything for it if they don't want time, and things that have no effort in them can be very valuable if they are desired by enough people. He also held the idea that all trades were equal exchanges of value, which is tosh. Marx saw that bit was tosh but considered it to be an ideal not reached due to repression inherent in the economic system.

It was Menger (and others) who developed the idea of marginal utility - that is that certain things are more useful to some people depending on supply, what it can be used for, and how useful it might be to other people.
This developed to the understanding that although you wouldn't probably trade your coffee pot for 15 pounds of coffee since the coffee is pretty worthless without a coffee pot, if you have two coffee pots, you might likely trade the second, identical pot for 15 pounds of coffee or possibly even less.
This is not because the value of the identical coffee pots is different, but because the value of a spare coffee pot may be less to YOU, and it is probably worth less to you than the value of that sweet coffee - (and greater to the person with lots of coffee and no pot).

The understanding from this is that ALL exchanges are doubly inequal, all parties in free exchange are giving things they value less for things they value more.

Marx strives to end inequality in all things, but the truth is that all things are inequal, as are all needs, all individuals, and all methods to satisfy those individuals' needs.

Then of course we need to look at that touching Socialist belief that majorities give valid authority over minorities.

That is why Obama could be seen as a genius ... he'd been raised from a pup to recite the "PC" dictates of the commie left. So exposing someone as a "climate denier" (for instance) is genius to them. Women faint in the front row (fake fainters) to emphasize such brilliance.

74 I think leftism or progressivism or whatever you want to call it has a spiritual root. It is the fear of judgment, and therefore a revolt against any standard against which a person may be judged.

Therefore a revolt against the tyranny of virtue over vice.
A revolt against the tyranny of faith over unbelief.
A revolt against the tyranny of the natural over the unnatural.
A revolt against the tyranny of the normal over the abnormal.
And a revolt against the tyranny of the functional over the dysfunction, etc.

Hence an inevitable favour in the left and protectiveness toward vice, unbelief, the unnatural, the abnormal and the dysfunctional.

It is significant that it seems to occur only in societies with a Judeo Christian tradition. There is no Leftism in China as we know it here. Or in Islam or in India or in most of Africa. The fear of judgment seems to be specifically a fear of the Christian God.

75 The labor theory of value is risibly puerile. I've asked adherents of it whether a pothole filled with teaspoons of asphalt has more value than one filled with a skiploader.

Crickets.

Value resides in the opinion of the market, and at a given time and given circumstances. Contra the Reds, nothing has a fixed, immutable value ("a fair price/wage etc." See also "gouging."). What's a glass of water worth? If you're dying of thirst in the desert, it's worth everything you've got; if you're drowning in a fresh water lake, the same glass of water has a negative value.

Cells rely on a electrochemical potential gradients across their membranes to survive. Destruction of such gradients - equality of electrochemical potential, if you will - is commonly called "death."

Another point: the labor theory of value is a recipe for inefficiency. If you consider adding more labor to be adding more value, then you would eschew efficiency and choose the method that necessitated the most labor, so as to add the most value.

Surely that is also obvious.

Quick science lesson. While the earth and planets rotate around the sun, our little solar system also rotates around the center of the Milky Way. With a certain couple hundred million year regularity. (Too lazy to look up number). When it hits a certain point in that secondary rotation -- well that point has historically been a very bad time for life forms.

I think these are two independent points.

China and Islam have concepts that push the idea of the many over the few...that individualism is not an acceptable philosophy. And that certainly bolsters the Bolsheviks!

And I think that the Left revels in a careful, complete rejection of the idea of God, and by extension reject all of his rules.

It is significant that it seems to occur only in societies with a
Judeo Christian tradition. There is no Leftism in China as we know it
here. Or in Islam or in India or in most of Africa. The fear of judgment

Interesting comment.

IMHO, it's culturally based in terms of shame vs. guilt.

Shame is public; guilt is private. External vs. internal.

Judeo Christian society are guilt based, while many others, most notably Islam, are shame based.

Note that for the most part, shame based cultures (which are not Judeo Christian) are the ones that have no Leftism.

This is one of the most basic refutations of Marx.

And what is fascinating is that the history of the labor movement will show 100% acceptance of this point. Samuel Gompers wanted "more", and his argument in many cases was that workers were getting better and more efficient, and therefore deserved...were owed!...more benefits.

My daughter and I have this very argument over and over. She violently rejects any spiritual connection, mention of God, or reference to any moral code.

Posted by: booknlass

Sure ... though I think the original tea party thing got invaded by interests other than "us versus them", middle America versus DC oligarch insiders.

I just breezed the Unified Theory thing, but he ends with a good point on Christianity. That is pertinent for the individual, BUT the big tent can have atheists or others that can agree in more basic tenets of individual liberty. Maybe Christian tea party groups and other tea party groups are needed, and they can coordinate.

Ace for example finds/makes a safe space without being Christian or Jewish (afaik). But a tea party group can be quickly divided (and it happens) when one demands all meetings start with prayer, and demand ending all abortion be the number one issue.

Ending third term abortion is the winning political issue, and many tea party non-Christians would join a tea party group to "save the nation from tyranny", but would not want to sign up for the rest. The rest can happen after we save the nation, and probably happens better on a cultural level.

(just my opinion on part of what happened to tea party groups the first time around)

I don't know. Seems to me that value is determined by both. Hence the Supply and Demand curves. And the goal is for the producer to assign a value to his product that enough purchasers agree is the proper value so that they're all satisfied with the outcome.

One of the shocking things about living in a recovering socialist country in Europe was the preference given to producers over consumers.

Shop assistants clearly used to consider themselves more important than customers; I've heard them remonstrate with customers, saying "I work here; you're just a customer here." They expected deference from customers, shown symbolically in such trivial matters as expecting customers to step aside to let them pass, things that you'd never see in the States.

And what's something out of nothing about Trump? He built buildings, which is not a paradigm changing model, and he bankrupted some airlines and casinos and then had a successful reality TV show.

They spend much of their lives rebelling and trying to recreate the "bad parent" in the form of a government that owns everything and doles out goods and favors only to those who show the proper deference and adulation.

Naturally, it flows that leftists want to be at the helm of this beast, so they can perpetuate the only form of justice they know: fealty to the all-powerful, arbitrary authority figure.

195 to me, the big problem with the "Chicago School of Economics" was the said country doesn't matter, global free trade will work out for everyone in the end. They did not put a price/cost on liberty, pollution, unequal laws, communist killers, slavery ... etc.

So economic theory is fun within closed systems, but even within the US we don't have a closed system (right to work states, for example). But going to China and selling freely back to US made the oligarchs of Wall Street rich, and when the leveraged too much, the commoner was forced to bail them out.

TARP seems a lot like the ultimate treasonous act ... not sure how we get back to realities of the value of labor, when trillions are created out of thin air for the oligarchs, underwritten by our DC sellouts. Add that laws don't apply to them and we have ... chaos.

As with the Left's "there is no truth" it is something which has implications which should destroy Islam as practiced but doesn't because double-think is done there too.

I can sympathize completely with that. That is the worst of this whole business. I've always believed in the right of others to go to hell in their own way, no one ever seems to want to go alone.

Sure, that's part of the system. If I have a super rare product nobody wants (like wombat eyelashes or something) then its worthless no matter what the rarity. Or if I have something people want, but it costs so much to produce that nobody will pay that much for it, its never going to sell either.

Cell phone prices are a very interesting experiment going on. Every new release, they charge more. Its the manufacturers testing how much people will pay for their product. As a fairly new commodity, nobody is really sure. Eventually they'll reach a price nobody wants to pay for, and have to lower or trim it a little. I mean the cost to make a new phone goes up every new iteration, but not as much as they raise the price.

I phones, apparently there's no price too high for these credulous idiots to pay for the symbol, even when its objectively a poorer product than its competitors.

The Never Trump faction still claims that the president of the United States "is no conservative." And yet, with rare deviations (such as free trade), he spends nearly every day implementing the conservative agenda. Ideas that center-Right activists have demanded for decades are becoming public policy, one after another - to the pleasant surprise of even some of Donald J. Trump's most enthusiastic supporters.

I bet ole Deroy doesn't get invited to the NRO office Xmas party.

Posted by: Bandersnatch

of course not ... not "true capitalism", which does not exist. Raw capitalism means the guy with the money makes the laws, arranges the bailouts for billionaires, etc.

That's why I always say capitalism is not a government system, it is more psychological theory. But it happens under the umbrella of a government that recognizes liberty and law. Armies are not capitalism, welfare state is not, open borders sorta is.

I tried an Android "smart-phone for a few months and found it to be infuriatingly stupid to use. Like Apple computers, it decides what I'm supposed to want and makes it hard to change it to anything I actually want.

253 The Never Trump faction still claims that the president of the United States "is no conservative."

A lot of his rhetoric is not conservative. He's protectionist, he likes government run health care, he's pro-abortion (at least he was in the recent past), he's fine with homosexual "marriage" and so on. In speeches.

But when you start to look at what he's doing you get an entirely different picture. President Trump is the first president in my life time -- perhaps ever -- to govern more constitutional than he ran.

The nevertrump guys cannot get past his rhetoric. But I see what he's doing and so far its really, really good stuff. One of my favorite bits is that he appointed guys into various federal offices who are gutting them. Donald Carson, considered a moronic piece of stupid around here by some, is cutting down the Housing and Urban Development department, for example.

But as long as Trump can keep people chasing squirrels with his tweets and statements, they generally don't even see what is going on behind the scenes, which leaves him basically a free hand.

And with the exception of Nintendo almost all consoles are sold at a loss for an extended period of their life cycle. Their value for the manufacturer is that you will buy enough games and peripherals, and now their online services in order for them to start making money off of you.

283 "Why harsh on Staples (Tom Stemberg, Romney was a financier not the originator)* "

I had many issues with Mitt in 2012. One was the idea was that he was an entrepeneur. At its start Bain Capital would do Venture Capital -- which is investing in new ventures with big risk and big reward. Staples was close to this.

But Bain quickly evolved into an LBO private equity shop, which is about buying and flipping public companies financed with Other People's Equity and a lot of debt, with tax advantages, and squeezing out expense, often by firing people. This is kind of capitalism -- and legal -- but it's the complete opposite of entreprenuralism.

Don't get me going on Carried Interest.

They spend much of their lives rebelling and trying to recreate the "bad parent" in the form of a government that owns everything and doles out goods and favors only to those who show the proper deference and adulation.

Naturally, it flows that leftists want to be at the helm of this beast, so they can perpetuate the only form of justice they know: fealty to the all-powerful, arbitrary authority figure.

"Leftists are explicable as victims of poor parenting."
That phrasing might work in most cases but......

Take my family. Six kids. Four of us voted for Trump for various reasons. One didn't vote at all but can easily understand why 4 of us chose Trump. No problem.

Then there is my full-blown moonbat sister.
Did she get somehow get "poor parenting" when her 5 siblings did not?

What I do know is that she has daddy (and mommy) issues that the rest of us don't have. It's as if she never moved past adolescence in that respect --- and she's in her 60's. She has some ideal of what a parent OUGHT to be and the real ones don't measure up. But at the same time she seems to be overly concerned about the parents' approval of her. I dunno.

In any case, while "poor parenting" alone could explain many turns to the Left, "poor childing" (!) can also be part of the equation. Some personality types apparently have a harder time leaving behind childish things and developing a healthy adult view of authority figures.

Since about the year 2003 I begged for a business person to run for President. When Mitt came along I was like, yeah... not that business person. Damn.

He's done nothing lately to change my opinion of him. In fact it's totally solidified into a fatburg of epic proportions.

"It is great for a work setting where your employees do not have access
to a desk top. If used properly, it is a great way to communicate
changes and information to your employees."


And as I said earlier today, value is determined by the purchaser not the producer. Value is in the eyes of the buyer. Advertising/PR seeks to color the glasses the buyer sees the product through.

This applies in the realm of politics too. Consider Fusion GPS as a ruthless and mercenary advertising firm. One which specializes in negative ads against their client's competitors and has no guiding sense of limits/morals in their professional activities.

The frustrating thing about Twitter is that its easy to get followers by throwing out red meat "LOOK AT WHAT OBAMA DID TODAY!!!" but none of them are there for what I want to use Twitter for: to promote my work.

304 To me a wristwatch is just an appliance that you wear on your wrist so you can tell time and date. For my purposes, a twenty-dollar Timex gets the job done as well as a $6000 Rolex.

308 Explanations like this are great for understanding the liberal mindset but unfortunately, I don't think there is a Unified Theory of leftist idiocy. Nor is there a central directing force, a conspiracy of some group of people led by Soros, Euro/global-elitists, or whoever. They are all just cogs in the brainless machine Fighting it would be easier it there were a unifying force or leadership. This is the problem. Leftism has so many permutation, endless new versions, bad ideas and new leaders and movements, sub-movements... It is constantly moving, mutating plague that it's own adherents have no control or understanding. We will never get rid of it of for the foreseeable future and doomed to fight is again and again and again...

309 There was a point in the R primaries (Feb 2016, after FL) where Mitt could have jumped in himself, because no one else was going to beat Trump.

Instead, true to his weasel self, Mitt only stirred up shit using surrogates like Cruz solely to undermine Trump. Ted may never recover.

In some ways, I hate Mitt more than Hillary (because she's certifiably nuts, and he's sanctimonious).

310 Then there is my full-blown moonbat sister.
Did she get somehow get "poor parenting" when her 5 siblings did not?


Its the old nature vs nurture thing. Some people just have a personality that inclines them in one direction or another, regardless of upbringing. The same parenting or background can produce a loving, normal person or a hollow shell of a bitter person. Someone can be abused as a child and grow up wise and protective or abusive and awful.

Its part of what annoyed me about MindHunter, that they strongly implied that serial killers are that way because of how they were raised. And there's definitely something to that. But not everyone who is raised that way goes nuts and starts doing horrific things. To be fair, they point that out too, but its always a danger when you look into people's backgrounds.

I'm inclined to be dry and analytic, my oldest brother was rash and emotion-driven. He got into tons of trouble, I was always the "good boy who did what was right" (I put that in quotes because I am a sinner just like everyone else, I just sinned mostly inside rather than in action). We were raised in the same loving, supportive, wise family.

Yeah, I use my phone's clock function too, sometimes even the alarm function. But the wristwatch is so handy, just swivel my arm, and the time display is right there, 24/7. My flip phone, the external screenlet goes dark after a few minutes, so I have to flip it open to read the time, after fishing it out of my pocket. A pocket watch is actually easier to use as a timepiece than a flip phone, and I have several nice vintage ones.

Yes, I was skeptical too. But, the pics of him in dress uniform, in helicopter, pics of him as an EMT with others, praise from co-workers, all have gone a long way in convincing me. Turns out, he has done similar things before, someone did some research. But this was first time someone came back to thank him.

Plus, that he made them take the GoFund Me page down b/c he thought it was too much money is unheard of. And already said he will donate to other charities. And looking to work at Amazon.

There still is that skepticism lurking in me, which I hate, but part of life. Our Sevice Men come back with needs and our govt. fails them. So many on the street. So many not getting counseling for pain they are in. 22 suicides a day. It's appalling. That this could be corrected for him and some friends would be wonderful.

But I get the cynicism. I have it too.

13 Willowed:

Goodell did a good job of hollowing out the Cowboys with Ezekiel Elliott's suspension.

Hard to believe that one guy is that important, but without him the Cowboys sputter out on offense consistently,

and the defense stays on the field so long that they're worn out by the second half.

If this is part of some long-standing feud between Jones and Goodell that's just become noticeable to the rest of us in the last few weeks,

I guess it's Goodell 1 Jones 0.

34 I love these crowd scenes by Steen. The colors in this one are somewhat muted because it's indoors but they blend well and aren't dull. Like Rembrandt, the characters are each distinct and individual. There is a LOT to take in for the viewer. (Maybe the ancestor of "Where's Waldo"?) And the outright humor, not moralistic scolding about demon rum, makes the whole painting fun and effective.

CBD, Thanks. A great choice for the day after Thanksgiving.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. My SIL is a flaming liberal but evidently only goes off on election years. All the young adults got jobs this summer, so they were talking about saving up money and not about government assistance.

It's a little-known fact that Da Vinci was, in addition to being a master drafter and inventor, a superb chef. He is credited by those in the know with creating what is now modern Italian cooking. His meatball recipe had been thought lost for hundreds of years, but it was discovered recently by a small group of monks who deciphered a peculiar code he used in one of his more risque novels, and there it was!

99 Europe isn't any more decadent today than it was
then. But back then they felt no need to commit suicide by Muzzie. It
would be interesting to hear a debate between a 17th century Dutchman
and a modern Dutch libtard who supports open borders.

Posted by: Steve and Cold Bear at November 24, 2017 09:57 AM (/qEW2)


The Dutch were the economic powerhouse of Europe for a time. From what I am told, the low countries were held by the Spanish who managed them in a Spanish manner, and finally the locals told them they were doing it wrong.

What the Spanish finally conceded to hold the peace, was to allow their possessions in the low countries to set up their own tax collection system and just pay revenues to the Spanish Crown.
So they did and did it so effectively and efficiently the Netherlands section wound up with surpluses.
So they Netherlands started a state bank and were so successful they became bot serious players in European banking, and fairly powerful and rich, and a model for other European kingdoms' state banks (for one it was a 100% reserve bank
Based on this the low countries took the first opportunity available to revolt against the Spanish.

Anyhow their liberty, banking resource and the position on the North Sea allowed funding of exploration and trade, which made them really rich.

A lot of this sort of painting is to chronicle and criticize what people did with their new affluence.

So many interesting choices-many I had never seen or heard of before. She really pays attention to the artwork and notices things I would never have noticed. I also think it's interesting that studying art works is part of her devotional life as a contemplative nun. I recommend this work highly to those interested in art. You can get hours of pleasure from the book.

206 Polliwog, not the first Greenie willing to harm in the name of the cause of stopping a pipeline.

Louis Hastings in 1983 in the town of McCarthy Alaska went on a killing rampage that resulted in six murders. His plan was to apparently hijack the mail plane to get to one of the Alaskan Pipeline stations to sabotage it. The scum is presently serving almost 600 years in prison.

The sordid tale can be found in chapter ten of a book called Murder at 40 Below:True Crime Stories from Alaska by Tom Brennan. The TV channel Investigation Discovery did a crime episode on him.

For some reason I am on the "erectile dysfunction" spam list even though I have never had a problem with erectile dysfunction either for myself or anyone I have known-well intimately . Anyway, this is their selling point "Get so hard your wife will be limping". Does this appeal to some men?; I suppose so. or they wouldn't phrase it that way, but my point of view is that I don't want to be in pain or limping after having sex so I can't think it would be that appealing to many women either.

The Morning Report 11/24/17

PDTCG.jpg

Good morning kids. Well, Thanksgiving Day has come and gone. Hope you all were surrounded by loved ones, "blessed their hearts" of your Lefty relations and most importantly stuffed yourselves to the gills with great food.

I'll keep things light for Friday but there are still some interesting things going on despite the long holiday weekend. First, and foremost, prayers for the sailors lost at sea and their families in the wake of a Navy plane crash in the Philippine Sea.

At home, there are reports that Michael Flynn may be cooperating with Robert "Hillary Mule" Mueller. Despite all the now confirmed evidence that there was not only no "collusion" with Russia by PDT to rig the elections but that Hillary, Obama and the Democrats worked hand in glove with them over a period of years and in ways that are borderline if not actual treason. And with Mueller and Comey as part of the conspiracy and coverup. He has got to go and yesterday.

Latest to jump on the destroy the Bill Clinton legacy bandwagon - in order to deflect the taint and blame Trump - is Kathleen Sebelius. And speaking of that boney fingered harridan who helped run our healthcare into the ground, another boney fingered harridan in the form of Lisa Murkowski has signaled that she will support the repeal of the individual mandate in the Tax Reform bill. That is potentially huge, the true nature of what's in the bill notwithstanding.

There are a couple of great articles near the top about the de-facto civil war we and the President are in. Roy Moore appears to be gaining back the momentum as the smear campaign is petering out. I did see a story over at American Spectator that alleges his campaign is making robo-calls that are of an anti-Semitic nature. I call bullshit; even the author who is a Jew and rightly concerned has flat out stated no matter what, vote for Roy Moore. Meanwhile, both John Conyers and Al Franken are stating that they will not resign, so pass the popcorn. Lastly a really amazing story of kindness and humanity in spite of what the world can do to you.

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

And now that Black Friday is here, a little theme music from Steely Dan...

7 On the Flynn BS


Attorneys for former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn have informed President Donald Trump's legal team that they can no longer discuss Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian activities during the 2016 election campaign, The New York Times reported Thursday.



If this is not an outright lie it is is an indication that Flynn wants to cop a deal with the witch hunt team and he is going to try to sell out Trump with a pack of lies. Morons need to keep in mind that Trump fired this guy.

14 On this Black Friday shopping day brick and mortar stores are going all out to lure shoppers back from the internet. If they really wanted to get a lot shoppers back they would get their local politicians to get rid of outrageous sales taxes. For example my local town has a 10.5% sales tax on non-food items. Needless to say, almost everything I buy in that town is a food item.

Despite some really horrible corruption scandals over the past 50 years now, I have to say I love our cops. They put up with a lot of crap from City Hall, especially now that DeBolshevik reigns, and are a walking target every time they put on that uniform. So, with the cameras rolling and thousands of people watching, I'm sure they used only as much force as was required to get them off the street.

That said, I was on a DUI jury duty case where despite the best efforts of who I later discovered was a mafia lawyer to get the defendant off (namely smearing the police officers), the cops who came to testify were shockingly ill-prepared.

I think I went off on a tangent there. Anyway, in a saner world, a public application of hickory shampoos without fear of repercussions. would indeed send a message.

The bread maker died, so we were in danger of having no egg bread.

I have a challah recipe that I've been making since I was a teenager, so I whipped that up, made it into 2 smaller loaves, put one on the bottom shelf of the oven under the turkey and one in the toaster over.

Emergency challah FTW!

64 From Front Page Mag, we have this gem:

In July 2017, Zakkout posted on his Facebook page a four-minute portion of a speech given by Louis Farrakhan, where Farrakhan repeatedly refers to Jews as "Satan." Farrakhan states (with shouts of agreement from the audience), "Really, they're not Jews. No, that's Satan. You should learn to call them by their real name, 'Satan.' You're coming face to face with Satan, the Arch Deceiver, the enemy of God, and the enemy of the righteous."

Farrakhan -- That name rings a bell. Isn't the 2nd in command at the DNC fundraising arm a Farrakhan disciple, ie Keith Ellison?

Anyhow, if I slip up occasionally and refer to our morning host as JJ Satan, I'm sure you all will understand.

smearing the police officers), the cops who came to testify were
shockingly ill-prepared.

they get mired in paperwork and expanding PC "special handling" obligations. I have no idea if "they" cleaned it up since the "Serpico" movie type things, but as long as organized crime has their lawyers and connections up the political chain, we'll have problems.

"The mob" shouldn't still exist at all ... but they seem to be useful to some in mostly Democrat positions. The Clinton Crime Syndicate, the open border gang, the Deep State globalist cabal, the UN human traffickers ... that is the "Resist" krewe. 'New World Order" indeed.

I've always taken it that Mephostohilis was telling Faustus: even when I appear to you on earth, my soul is still condemned to hell, for eternity.

He's trying to warn Faustus against what Faustus is about to do: sell his soul to the devil. (Mephostophilis goes on to say: "thinkest thou that I who saw the face of God and tasted the eternal joys of heaven am not tormented with ten thousand hells in being deprived of everlasting bliss?")

That's a rather tall order, but "New World Order" is treason on the face of it. Dig deeper and it is even more treasonous. There do seem to be some men inside against it, which is why Hillary needed "special handling" by selected "mobster lawyers" to escort Hillary around traditional justice.

HSBC got caught money laundering $2B (mishandling a trillion) and a team had prosecution ready to indict, but international bank law was imposed from London, Lynch intervened ... bada bing ... they only got a fine.

Hard to tell if that order is crumbling with Weinstein and Clinton, or if they are just making adjustments. As long as Mueller's coup is operated with no oversight, the beast is still in battle mode.

161 Mueller is certainly planning to string out investigations until campaign season in 2018 and then make "bombshell" indictments.

Sessions will stay recused, Rosenstein will act like everything is on the up and up, and GOP Congressional backstabbers will be very concerned.

Happy post-turkey day to the Horde. Hoping all your festivities went as well as mine.

Yeah, I see this happening just as you unfolded. There is no indication Mueller and his band of Hillary foot soldiers are wrapping up anything. And no indication they will be fired either. We can't even get rid of the rest of the Obama holdovers, fer pete's sake.

As for the GOP, I have zero doubt they are all happily standing back and waiting for the Mueller team to get rid of Trump for them. No doubt.

You're not replacing the NFL's current labor pool with some other labor pool.

So your not suddenly going to get a plethora of white wide receivers and DB's to replace the black players.

So the only way is for white's to tune out the NFL and decimate their bottom line.

And even then they might not change their ruinous behavior.

220 The day of the election I mentioned to the horde that had fears and doubts, to listen to Caddell and Coulter discussing the polling that was revealing the Trump groundswell. Caddell revealed what he saw in polling that was being ignored.

Pat seems to be a real patriot and is probably sickened by the globalist/criminal takeover of the Democrat party over the decades.

"America First" was a (Dem at the time?) Trump issue in the late 1980's, and he was certainly way ahead of the curve (ahead of Greenspan saying the stock market had "irrational exuberance") on seeing tax policy and easy money policy pushing money into global(ist) stocks instead of build America.

In 1990 Trump testified to Congress about it and they all loved him. But the globalist mob has been in charge of making the hedge fund Wall Streeters into mega billionaire oligarchs, and that is still our path, it would seem. Voters are an inconvenience, but they are being dealt with.

224 The NFL has had a steroid problem for many years. Players are too fast and strond, which leads to big hits and concussions, which leads to 50 year olds committing suicide. Get the league back to what it was many years ago and I would watch. They do not even try to enforce steroid usage.

225 I'd say its a given that Obama's interest in Uranium One (other than just weakening America) was to make sure the Iranians had a backdoor pipeline for their weapons program.

I think that's the primary reason no one on either side of the aisle wants to look into this with any degree of effort. It would demonstrate several things that no one wants to have confirmed:

The affurmatif axshun preznit was actively helping a state sworn to our destruction; Skankles and the CGI were just convenient tools.

The GOPe, the LEAs and the IC almost certainly knew of this activity and failed to act on it

The MSM was actively engaged in covering it up and protecting the Won.

Commissioner Roger Goodell announced that the NFL will become a wholly owned property of GONAD (Gobierno No 'ave Dolares), the sovereign wealth fund of Venezuela.

Said Goodell, "This will complete the fundamental transformation of this enterprise. Some may have noticed that we have been transitioning."

I sometimes think that PDT has allowed things like the "investigation" to persist, because he doesn't want the voters to become complacent. They've got to see that DC is toxic and continue their efforts to elect actual conservatives. Allowing the "swamp" to strain at the leash may be a tactic. 11D chess and all.

The hope is from pressure from the outside, like Judicial Watch and Sara Carter investigative journalists with some financial backing. Plus the bloggers and alternative media making enough penetration into the public awareness zone.

That's why the elite are pushing so hard for Google/FB/Twitter etc. to censor conservatives and push the left's propaganda to the top.

We all hope so, too. The most wretched thing about CA today is that there are only two models of getting by that work - you can have no job at all, be on every government assistance program, and live in some level of government subsidized housing - of course it benefits you greatly if you are black or hispanic and have 6 or 7 kids. People in that category seem to get by pretty well there these days, everything is paid for.

OR you can be what the rest of us call rich, pulling in a salary of at last $200,000/yr. Life can be good if you're in that category, as is most of San Fran.

Anybody in between those two extremes is stuck in hell and needs to get out as fast as they can.

242 Morning everyone. Some interesting points to ponder and comment on. So i will.

Baseball had a massive steroid problem not long ago, and despite the excitement of average-sized guys getting suddenly BIG and hitting 50 HRs, etc., the public turned on them, even rejected them. and look at the result - this year's World Series was awesome, LAST years' WAS was historic, etc.

I bet if football tried the same, and went after clean gamesmanship, they might be able to dig themselves out of a hole. As it is, they lost this 50+ year fan. Didn't watch FB on TGiving, for the first time in decades.

245 Goodell did a good job of hollowing out the Cowboys with Ezekiel Elliott's suspension.

Hard to believe that one guy is that important, but without him the Cowboys sputter out on offense consistently,

and the defense stays on the field so long that they're worn out by the second half.

If this is part of some long-standing feud between Jones and Goodell that's just become noticeable to the rest of us in the last few weeks,

I guess it's Goodell 1 Jones 0.

.The problem with that is those people in the middle are moving here to Texas and driving the housing prices through the roof.

Talked to one yesterday who is a friend of my SIL and she said they couldn't believe the house prices here and everyone is paying the asking price or more and starting bidding wars on houses which just starts an upward spiral of prices and the exact same thing will happen in Dallas in a few years.

Thanksgiving ONT

Greetings and happy Thanksgiving! Tonight's ONT will be brief, but I have a few links for those of you who are fighting through a tryptophan-induced stupor in order to post here. Hope everyone had a wonderful day, filled with something like this:

thanksgiving-dinner.jpg

Or was it? Here are The Most Popular Thanksgiving Foods in All 50 States, Mapped.

Some of these are as to be expected, but some are not. Maryland having crab cakes isn't shocking, but what's wrong with you, Texas? Chicken spaghetti? Really? I've never even heard of chicken spaghetti. I think even a turkey lollipop would be more traditional:


Of course, there's more to Thanksgiving dinner than turkey.

Sides.jpg


Rolls? Cool. Mac & Cheese? Doable. Salad though? Don't you westerners know anything?


Of course, that's a traditional meal. Some people, however...

What I learned when I tried to make a gluten-free, vegetarian, kosher, no soy, vegan, organic, low acid, no dairy …

Honestly, I'll make a reasonable effort to accommodate anyone, but if your dietary restrictions are that esoteric, bring your own food.

Well, enough about the meal. How about The Origin of 7 Thanksgiving Traditions?

Of course, Thanksgiving is about giving thanks, and I'm thankful for all of you Morons who allow me to natter aimlessly at you twice a week. What are you thankful for? I think we can all be thankful that our Fore Fathers had the wisdom and foresight to design for us a system of government that would ensure that we remained free.

I realize that limited government has been under attack for more than a century now, but honestly, 90% of the problems we have in this country could be solved by just going back to the way things were intended.

Some of you may have given thanks in a church today. That's a proper thing to do. I don't know a thing about their ministry, or whether I would even find this church to be a spiritual home, but I do like the sign out front:

church.jpg

I have my own, somewhat non-traditional idea about what Christ meant by “turn the other cheek”, but I'm absolutely sure that he didn't mean to cower in a corner to be shot down like a dog.

Finally, now that Thanksgiving is behind us, Christmas season is upon us. I would like to remind everyone to reach out to the less fortunate in your community, and there is no better way to do that than by helping this wonderful charity:

I hope everyone had a blessed day with friends and family, and would like to close with a money-saving tip for the holidays:

Some of the kids and their spouses are playing canasta, youngest grandkids are tummy full slepping, the others are battling for top dog on the Monopoly board. Mrs Mingo is with 2 daughter inlaws putting order back in the kitchen. I am on my 4th glass of wine watching it all. MAGA.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OeP4FFr88SQ

Note that he is introduced by Pete Seeger. At the time Dylan was famous as a "protest singer". This was where he left all that behind and struck out on his own.

All the folk music commies were like, "WTF is this shit? He's supposed to be singing protest songs!"

This was where Dylan basically told the folk music commies to go pound sand. This was a year before he "went electric".

My father was one of eight; my mother, one of six; me, one of five. I have but two... My aunts and uncles have a combined number of children less than their total number...

Yes, I do. The law is the law, actions are actions. Who you are shouldn't matter. Ever.



If you think it's worse for one person to do it than another, then
write a different law to cover that. So if a cop beats you up, he's
guilty of assault, and if such a law exists, he's also guilty of
misusing his power.



But your assault is the same whether I do it or he does it.



And now, with that, I'm out. So please don't fret too much over this. We're probably arguing semantics as much as anything.

No, it absolutely is not the same thing. If I assault you - you can fight back to protect yourself. If a police officer assaults you - in most states - you are legally prohibited from fighting to protect yourself; even curling up into a ball will get you a "resisting arrest" charge tacked on.

And the LA Times is in a state that seems to go out of its way to make housing unaffordable.

A short time ago I had a conversation with my SIL about her best friends married daughter. This is a couple, fully employed who had to share an apartment in San Francisco because they couldn't afford rent on their own. So in order to live without roommates, they moved to a sketchy area in Oakland, which, of course, means less housing for low income people.

I gotta respectfully disagree here. The earlier argument was, by holding the office, one has some additional exposure to the law, because, you should know better. Not committing an act in the line of duty.

In other words, the on duty cop exposes himself to greater punishment because he is acting under the authority of his position. The off duty cop should not be charged more heavily than the civilian, just because he should know better.

The earlier argument that was made was, there is no need to read a judge his rights, he knows his rights. But just as ignorance of the law is no excuse, knowledge of the law should should not bear any additional exposure. We should be equal under the law, and the judge, committing a crime which has nothing to do with his office, should face the same punishment as anyone else.

I'm sure you disagree. Have as much or little fun as you like batting this around. I'm done, off to bed, so questions might as well be rhetorical.

One theory somebody put out - not me - is Bob was fixin' to get drafted. Some sort of deal was worked out, however that stuff gets arranged, but he had to agree to lay off all the protest stuff. If true, he more or less kept his end of the bargain. Supposed "clues": "I ain't gonna work on Maggie's Farm no more", for example, would be a play on the fact he had earlier sang with civil rights pioneers at McGee's farm, etc. Hm.

154 For some reason, out of the blue, l am reminded of the "I Will Not Sit At The Kid's Table" Thanksgiving Day protest of 1968. Big extended family dinner. My assigned spot was at one of the "kid's tables". No way I was sitting with 3 - 8 year olds at kindergarden sized table/chairs and not get to hear any of the good stories my aunts and uncles told. T

hey probably wanted me to help maintain order with the little ones. If they had explained it that way I probably would have been OK with it but what they said was there wasn't any room at "the big tables". So I stood at the kitchen counter and ate (and heard the good stories). Never was seated at a kids table again. (I was 12.)

With a bit more persuasion, this year was quite reasonable, and she actually enjoyed it, thanking us for getting her to scale back even more.

172 I just think Bob Dylan doesn't want to get owned by anyone. He wants to do his thing, then move on to the next thing. When the Left wanted to own him and be their mouthpiece, he quit doing protest songs and became a rock star. When everyone started getting into his bag, he went to Woodstock and worked with The Band. Later on when he became a Christian and started doing his Gospel thing, the Born Again Crowd wanted him to be their mouthpiece, and he pulled back and tried to be commercial and make videos for MTV and tour with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and then do The Willbury's....

Now he's doing Sinatra. He hasn't written a real protest song since 19 fucking 63, but when he croaks, the first line of his obit is going to state that he was a "Protest Singer."

That's always a difficult proposition. Theoretically I have no issue with using force, up to and including deadly force, to resist unlawful violence from law enforcement. From a practical perspective, you can be almost certain that either a) you'll end up dead or in the hospital, or b) you'll go to prison if you survive the encounter. It's unusual for people to come out of that without charges, although it has happened a couple of times with no-knock unannounced Gestapo raids by SWAT.

You hear the younger one in the background saying "And I thought all fat guys were jolly." It is a go to phrase in our house.

214 No, tis not the mare's fault but it doth seem the fickle finger of fate likes to give you the finger on these matters. *sigh*

Off to soak in a tub full of hot water. Today, ugh. Ran register during first hour of the Wal-Mart rush. Then spent another hour or so after I was supposed to clock out pulling empty features to the back while trying not to crush the Shopping Reavers, then helping breaking the features down, and crushing the cardboard. And when I thought I could leave, turns out everyone in sporting goods went to lunch at same time so back on a register for me to make a few more sales.

So the tub seems a very good idea plus got a blister on a toe. And I have to be back at work tomorrow. *ugh*

Last few years it's jus been me and my mom so we've made a tradition of going to a buffet at a big hotel. Had a very nice meal with some very nice people.

Going camping for the next couple days. Currently fighting the inclination to bring ALL the guns.

Hope your holiday was great. I'll make do for the next few days without AoS. Somehow.

Lets see today had two people in search of pots for their propane deep fryers because they failed to check them so only today found leaks in the pots. Or the person who was looking for the burner.

Luckily for $40 Wal-Mart had a brand new all included, well save the propane, deep fryer deal. Sold quite a few of them, afraid to read tomorrow's paper to find out how many houses burned down because of these dyers were operated by idiots.

And luckily still the store did not explode this morning. Guy wanted a propane tank. So open cage to pull one tank out. Then I notice his wife is about a foot away puffing on her cancer stick. I kindly asked her to please move since.

329 MisHum and all --

When we had the circular "what do you give thanks for" thing, I did the usual "for family", then added "For the AOSHQ, because it's extended family."

Sister asked was that where I'd asked for prayers, and when I said yes, got thanks from her and the other sister.

Both are libs, but with only the three of us blood-related left, and two husbands ... we don't let that divide us. Politics in family gatherings are strictly taboo.

330 Just wanted to say that as a Texan, whoever said the most popular Thanksgiving day dish down here was chicken spaghetti is crazy - we don't eat that, ever. For Thanksgiving it is turkey and cornbread dressing, sides like broccoli/cheese/rice casserole, green beans, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, salad, etc. No darn chicken spaghetti at all.

Gah, was just thinking about Christmas. No idea what to get dad. He doesn't have the attention span to read anymore. He has an extensive library. He wanted me to spend the night tonight when I took him home, but I have other obligations in the am. Will spend afternoon with him and spend night tomorrow and make tacos per his request. Moving in with him may be sooner than I planned. It will not be easy.

334 Slap, thanks for being the keeper of the prayer list.

I have a thanksgiving to report. My stepdaughter went on the prayer list last year because her dad and I got uninvited for Thanksgiving after the election. It seemed to bring out some disappointments in our family relationships.

Anyway, this year, not only were we invited for Thanksgiving, but my stepdaughter called me a few weeks ago for some spiritual support. She is feeling the call to renew her relationship with Christ and trust God more deeply. She is in academia, which generally doesn't foster the kind of humility for true faith.

It was very humbling that she trusts me enough to share her questions, doubts, and fears.

Anyway, things are going in a better direction and I hope she follows through in her spiritual growth.

I want to express my very deepest thanks to the Horde for caring about my concerns and supporting me and my family in your prayers, and I wanted you to know that God has heard you and answered.

May you receive His richest blessing in your lives.

We were on our way into the truck stop when this guy pulled up and said he had brand new VCR's for sale out of his trunk. I told him that we weren't interested, but because it was getting close to Christmas, the rookie thought he was going to get a deal. Brand New for only $40.00! Guy shows us one out of a box for what it looked like and the rookie fell for it hook line and sinker. I kept telling him not to do it, but he was ready. So guy takes his money and gives him a sealed box. We go in and eat, come back out to the truck and he decides to open it. He was the proud owner of two bricks taped to the box so they wouldn't move. I didn't say another word, but then, I really didn't have to.

341 Yet again, my oldest son and I blew the gravy. My MIL made the best damn giblet gravy in the entire world. She passed away in early 2009, and my oldest son and I have been trying to replicate it since then. (Both he and I worked as cooks for several years, me in fast food, him in much higher end places, so it's not like either of us are kitchen virgins.) We've come really close a couple of times, but otherwise, like today, it's been a complete disaster. We suspect that today's mistake was burning the roux. No matter what we did to it, it still tasted burnt. The rest of the family is getting really ticked at us for being such screw ups. Gah! I'm surprised they let us sit at the table with them, but there was an awful lot of kvetching.

364 #ThankfulFor

Feasting and family. Got to feed the grandbaby. And pet son's dogs. Did I mention feasting and family.

Now home, and all cats accounted for. Got a warm beverage and a few minutes to lurk on Morons and then, soon, that sweet, sweet snoozetime.

365 Old Blue, I was looking at those. I like the ones with the wood case. Didn't see any reviews tho. Any suggestions?

Posted by: Infidel at November 24, 2017 12:15 AM (Ix4M6)

366 Generally the taller ones will have more of the glass bubbles with the temperature tags. I would go with a 15 to 18 inch model. I got one for a birthday present and I loved it, right up until the cat knocked it off the bookcase and it broke. And they are reasonably accurate. The one's in the wooden case would be a little more break resistant I think. Also a little classier.

367 Sheesh, I got MSG powder at the grocery store a few years ago. I read if you make a paste out of it, it will take sudor stains out of white tops.

368 An interesting take on the Pilgrims rejection of collective ownership

"In fact, as Bradford makes clear, the Pilgrims did not desire to establish Christian communism. The Pilgrims' original communal property arrangements were foisted upon them by their colonial sponsors. "

Deplorable Lady: ...oldest son and I blew the gravy. ... The rest of the family is getting really ticked at us for being such screw ups....

Well, goodness they should be; gravy is what ties the whole dinner together!

Milady and Daughter were adjusting and readjusting the gravy today. Flour didn't get cooked enough, needed more water, something like that. Whatever they did, it came out great. Whew!

374 The side dish map - definitely not scientific. Seeing as how AZ is packed with midwest transplants, it should mirror to a degree the rolls biscuits region. Other than that, likely just a reflection of the climate - with the heat, salads tend to cool down the palate.

Whatever. I mighta got the story wrong. This is why I'm not on gravy duty.

It worked with the turkey. And the dressing. And the mashed potatoes. And the rolls. Didn't try it on pie.

Rolls - instead of cornbread. The chart above clearly shows, we should have had cornbread here in NE OK, but, son had been given a big tray of rolls from work, so, rolls.

386 OT/ TY to whoever posted the WZ story info about the homeless guy. I looked it up then went to Go Fund Me page and read everything and got all soppy.

Guy even asked them to take the GoFund me page down b/c he felt it was too much money. But people still wanted to give money. So it went back up. 11 updates track the story.

So now, get this, he wants to donate to organizations that need help or have been overlooked.

The 2 people doing all this are not gonna dump the money on him, but guide him. He wants to work at Amazon. Amazon has reached out.

They posted pics of him when he was in the Marines. He was also a paramedic. But when he got back from the war his marriage didn't survive.

Anyway, it's just such an uplifting story, and I cry at those...yea, well..shut up. Don't much cry for self, but these ones get me.

NY Post story has the Go Fund Me Link.

========

I've advocated against bullying and abuse of turkeys all my life. I've no recollection of the event in question, although I cannot tell you how sorry I am that my actions were interpreted by the turkey to be demeaning and abusive, and for that I feel truly ashamed. I will make it a point to reflect upon my life and try to do better. I think turkeys always ought to be believed when they make such claims, otherwise we risk silencing their voices.

Before this day is out, I'd like to try one more trick. Something I haven't done in decades: A standing back-flip on the trampoline. In the dark. All I have to do is avoid the big hole that has prevented anyone from using it for a long time.

Here, hold my brandy...

408 Wonkette (stumbled on to her site accidentally from the sidebar) claims Franken's "apology" was for "wield[ing] power in a way that made someone with less of it uncomfortable." Got that scalding take?

She also says, "We need to hear...more people like Al Franken...he's handling this with ... dignity and respect..."

And most hilariously, "You are in for a world of disappointment over the next few weeks if you thought that predatory dudes could be identified by their stated politics."

Of course she actually CAN if she's running with the safe money odds.

Flipped around the dial after dinner and two local stations were updating us on a much needed update of the allegations against Moore. Keep us informed.

The on-board battery is dead, despite it being a relatively new purchase. Shut it down again, and left the power brick on to charge up the battery. Once the battery is back up, I get the loveely job of taking the damn thing apart to try to find out why only half the keyboard works after the last time I took it apart. Hoping it's a ribbon cable not seated properly in its socket.

434 Nope. No MSG. A sprinkle of Kitchen Bouquet if the gravy was too pale. The old girl was straight off the farm and didn't hold with novelties like MSG. (Of course, she was such a great cook she didn't need it in the first place.)

Followed the oral recipe to the letter. One tablespoon of flour to one tablespoon of turkey grease. Stir into nicely browned roux, dump in chopped up cooked gizzard and liquid gizzard was simmered in, followed by small additions of water until appropriate consistency. Also included all fond from bottom of pan to add flavor and color. Some salt and pepper. We think we burned the roux.

Oldest son worked for a while in a Cajun-style restaurant. Claims he had to make really dark roux because it turned much paler when actually used for cooking. I was off in living room teaching youngest grandson the chorus to The Witchdoctor song while daughter screamed at me that the smoke alarms were going to go off at any moment. I assumed oldest son was smart enough and experienced enough to know when to add the giblets and broth. My bad. But it was really important that youngest grandson learn the chorus from the Witchdoctor song. It's a major component of American culture!

At Christmas, we will not make the roux so dark -- if we are allowed anywhere near the kitchen. Youngest son, who has watched entirely too much Elton Brown, says he's going to do it. Hell, we won't even let him make the green bean casserole or the mashed potatoes.

In my house, if we don't have turkey for Thanksgiving, it's prime rib. In which case we have turkey for Christmas. And I am the only one in the family who eats rice as a side...but then, I'm the only one in the family that eats rice at all.

443 My friend down in NC had a bad start to Thanksgiving. Her female friend had an older woman who lived with her. (Her friend's husband had died this past New Year's.) She was having trouble breathing since the weekend and decided Thursday morning to take her to the ER. When my friend's friend asked her to buckle up, she was unresponsive. Called 9/11 and they told her to get her out of the car and begin CPR. (The woman was on the heavy side and her friend said that if they hadn't been lifting weights the last year, she would never have been able to get her out of the truck.) My friend got a call that she died on the ground while giving CPR. EMS came, got a pulse back and took her to the hospital but the woman's niece, a nurse, told the hospital she had a DNR, so she died. My friend had gone to the house, then drove her to the hospital as she was in no shape to drive. My friend had to finally drag her friend out of the hospital because there was nothing she could do. Brought the friend home where she polished off a small bottle of wine, then fed her so she wouldn't be inebriated on her drive back home.

Not a great way to 'celebrate' although I guess the lesson here is that if one is to be thankful for anything, it's being alive, all bitching about the pitfalls and troubles of life notwithstanding.

Is a Bill which states the Congress Recognizes that the Constitutional Right already exists.... and should be interpreted in this manner.

Then get it signed by the President...

Then just LET some F'n Judge try to over ride BOTH other coequal branches of the Government.

There is nothing in the Constitution that says the Courts are the only arbiter of Constitutionality...

Doesn't seem to matter. Apparently, no one in SCOTUS is capable of any form of reading comprehension.

Because what you're doing, reading the law, and expecting people to follow the law, is not how DC works.

Cultural Marxism, i.e. Liberalism works like this: First, determine who the "victim" is though feelz. Then twist, torture, ignore and rewrite the law so the "victim" wins.

It's got nothing to do with a representative republic and everything to do with the tyranny of our betters in black robes, 'cause they're the wisest, wokest most justice giving folks, dontchya know.

So my Thanksgiving Day eating has been,1) coffee this morning, 2) soup for lunch and 3) a piece of pumpkin pie, later.

Given the weather and temperature, I suggested to Her Majesty that today would be the best day this weekend for a major scrubdown of the pens and grooming area in the kennel. Eight hours of hauling everything out, vacuuming, scrubbing, power washing and hauling stuff back in later, we got the grooming area and four of the six pens finished. Neither one of us wants anything further except painkillers.

Last two pens scheduled for Saturday. Thanksgiving dinner scheduled for Sunday. Just another weekend at Schloss Hadrian.

No! Despite the deceptive first sentence. They state the following:

In large cities like London, cooking fat is known to be responsible for 10 per cent of small particles in the air, so researchers believe frying food could have a noticeable impact on cloud formation and rainy weather.

In fact, the effect is so large it could even have a cooling effect on the planet, and potentially slow down global warming.



They felt obligated to mention it, they slip it in, but they do not want to emphasize it for obvious reasons. They don't want people to think they can eat delicious food *and* combat global warming at the same time. But according to cutting edge research, eating bacon, fries and shrimp tempura can combat global warming.

If you have to go to two places on Thanksgiving or Christmas (in-law situation), the place you go last is who you'd rather be with.

Posted by: Soothsayer

Never true.

One for Turkyday.
Other for Christmas.

Next year, swap.

Easter is optional for all.

That was the cue.

upstairs to put on my slippers. Think they'll get the hint?

273 I got 4 minutes out of the mandatory 15 minutes of FaceTime with my kids. They immediately asked to come over to my house tomorrow and asking why. I have to tell them no and maybe sometime. They both started crying and basically are getting to the point for telling me to fuck off and die.

7 days in 4 years. I've committed no crimes, not abusive, and DFCS can't even get involved, and if they could this would have ended 3 years and 10 months ago.

Legal system needs to be nuked from orbit. Fuck I'm pissed.

I am in a supper club with about eight couples, we rotate homes. We were at my lawyers home, drinking the shit out of his booze. At about 10 PM, he comes down in his bathroom and PJs and says good night.

We stayed for another hour, just to piss him off AND the next time we had the dinner at his place we all wore PJ to the dinner.

He took it well.

Superior is brutally rough in a gale. Ore boats (they're 600-800 feet long) are actually rather lightly built, not true ocean going vessels. The lake got rough enough, and the keel probably snapped, loaded with thousands of tons of iron ore.
Yes, I'm sure they knew they were in deep trouble.
