Quotes of The Day

Quote I

"If any are discontented with their state here, if any believe that wages or prices, the returns for honest toil, are inadequate, they should not fail to remember that there is no other country in the world where the conditions that seem to them hard would not be accepted as highly prosperous."

Benjamin Harrison, 23rd President of the United States, Annual Message to Congress, 1892


Quote II

“We must picture hell as a state where everyone is perpetually concerned about his own dignity and advancement, where everyone has a grievance, and where everyone lives with the deadly serious passions of envy, self-importance, and resentment.” C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters


Quote III

“The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.” Nicolas Chamfort

Dana Loesch excellent marksman both on and off the range.

Another day, another Media Matters beef with Dana Loesch.

So, what’d she do this time? Well, she had the chutzpah to call Chelsea Manning by her given name and to suggest that Manning is not, in fact, a woman. Or, as Media Matters frames it, an “anti-trans attack”:

You may have voted for PDT, you may have sat the election out, hell you might have even voted against him. But be honest with yourself. PDT has put the skids on soft socialism and just plain moonbattery.

More than 100 lawmakers, led by a New York Republican and Rhode Island Democrat, have called on the Trump administration to reverse its decision to pull climate change as a threat from the National Security Strategy.

The Obama administration's February 2015 National Security Strategy stated, “Climate change is an urgent and growing threat to our national security, contributing to increased natural disasters, refugee flows, and conflicts over basic resources like food and water. The present day effects of climate change are being felt from the Arctic to the Midwest. Increased sea levels and storm surges threaten coastal regions, infrastructure, and property. In turn, the global economy suffers, compounding the growing costs of preparing and restoring infrastructure.”

In its 2014 Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap, the Defense Department warned that "a changing climate will have real impacts on our military and the way it executes its missions."

After the past week I find this interesting, at least to your humble Cob. What happens to your body when you sneeze? Be careful not to hold it in.

But it's better to interrupt your coworkers and seatmates than risk some health consequences, say researchers.

A 34-year-old in Leicester in the U.K. ended up rupturing his throat while trying to hold in a forceful sneeze.The man said he felt a "popping" sensation in his neck after pinching his nose and holding his mouth closed to stop a sneeze. The pressure didn't have anywhere to go, so it tore the soft tissue.

The man had to be fed by a tube and eventually made a full recovery. Researchers, who described the case in the journal BMJ Case Reports, said trapping a sneeze can be dangerous and can also result in something as serious as a brain aneurysm.

Sanity? A new 51st state, New California? Sounds good, but it will never happen. The crazies need the Right to support them.

The founders of New California took an early step toward statehood Monday with the reading of their own Declaration of Independence from California, a state they describe as "ungovernable."

Their solution: Take over most of current-day California — including many rural counties — and leave the coastal urban areas to themselves.

The Drinking Game, The Shoe0nHead way. NSFW

I've never met Aziz Ansari. I don't know him. I know I don't care for his "comedy". And from what I've seen of him he's a jerk. He's lucky he isn't a college student.

These are wildly different takes, and there are dozens more perspectives offered in The Washington Post, National Review, Jezebel, on Twitter, and elsewhere. But most of the takes have one thing in common: they explicitly reject the original article's assertion that Aziz Ansari committed sexual assault. Ansari behaved badly, and there is much to be said about how he ignored his date's wishes, thought only of himself, and expected sexual gratification at every turn. But he is not a rapist, most people seem to agree.

And yet, boorish behavior similar to Ansari's—behavior that most pundits say they consider gross but not criminal, at least in Ansari's case—is routinely investigated as sexual misconduct on university campuses. Ansari is lucky he's not a college student; otherwise he could have been accused months or a year after the incident, investigated by a lone administrator with sole power to decide which witnesses to interview, called before a hearing to answer charges he does not fully understand, forbidden from consulting a lawyer or cross-examining his accuser, found responsible for sexual misconduct under a preponderance of the evidence standard, and expelled from campus as required by Title IX, the federal statute that mandates gender equality in schools


Another interesting read on the "hip" Ansari.

Would you like to hear some good news? The EPA is shrinking!

The Environmental Protection Agency is on track to slash 47% of its total staff by the end of President Trump’s first term, according to a report in the Washington Examiner. After just one year, EPA chief Scott Pruitt has reduced his staff to levels unseen since the Reagan administration. If just those federal employees set to retire by 2021 do indeed leave, Pruitt will have cut more than 7,000 bureaucrats.

Public streets, not so public unless you're a resident of Leonia, NJ.

If you want to drive through the small residential streets of Leonia, N.J., you'll have to move there.

Starting Jan. 22, the town will ban all non-residents from driving on 60 of its streets during the morning and evening rush hours.

The new rules aim to crack down on urban-dwellers who take shortcuts through the town while following instructions from navigation apps like Waze, Google Maps or Apple — a phenomenon Mayor Judah Zeigler says is causing gridlock, costing money and putting people in danger.

I hope that they stop accepting any outside tax money for their upkeep.

The ONT Musical Interlude


images.jpeg

January 17, 2011, American music publisher, talent manager, and songwriter Don Kirshner who helped launch the careers of Neil Diamond, Bobby Darin, Carole King, Neil Sedaka, The Monkees, The Archies and Kansas, died of heart failure at the age of 76. Kirshner was hired by the producers of the Monkees to provide hit-worthy songs to accompany the television program and also served as a music consultant for almost two dozen TV series between 1966 and 1977. via thisdayinmusic.com


Just to name a few big names that were on show during it's run.

Dolores O'Riordan, RIP

Dolores O'Riordan, the lead singer of the Cranberries, has died at age 46, and across the musical and political spectra, there is cause for mourning.

She was a stunning talent, with one of the most exquisite voices in rockdom – slightly metallic, musical as a bell, grinding, passionate, and fascinatingly Irish in accent. Her songs and videos were as beautiful as she was: lithe, sinewy, manic, melodic. Her lyrics were poetic and surprisingly sophisticated. With a great band and great songs, of course she was destined to become a big rock star in the 1990s, that transition period before just rap and pop junk pretty much took over, (with a few exceptions). Her remaining rock videos are fantastic.

So was man and not rats to blame for the Black Plague?

Rats were not to blame for the spread of plague during the Black Death, according to a study.

The rodents and their fleas were thought to have spread a series of outbreaks in 14th-19th Century Europe.

But a team from the universities of Oslo and Ferrara now says the first, the Black Death, can be "largely ascribed to human fleas and body lice".

The study, in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, uses records of its pattern and scale.

A Japanese city has activated an emergency warning system to alert residents to avoid eating locally purchased blowfish after a mix-up saw toxic parts of the delicacy go on sale.

A supermarket in Gamagori in central Japan sold five packages of fugu fish without removing the livers, which can contain a deadly poison.

I saw something on the news about it. They're putting up no trespassing signs - wait, no, they're putting up "do not enter between these hours" signs - and giving residents yellow hanging tags for their rear view mirrors. If you don't have one you get pulled over and pay a $400 fine.

Apparently they're a cut through with a teensy bridge right before a big bridge that all the miserable traffic is supposed to take, and before Waze and Google only a few locals knew about it and used it. Now everyone does because the GPS routes them there.

It was interesting to see the police chief saying how easy it was to get the GPS companies to stop routing the traffic once it became illegal to drive on the streets.

61 I'm going to head to bed but a short little story. So I mentioned on a thread a few days ago I have a groupie. Honest to God, this girl is always on my Etsy shop, wants me to make something for her, shows up at my shows, usually buys something but not always. I can tell she doesn't have a lot of money. So about a week ago she wanted me to customize a bracelet for her. Then she asked for a custom zipper charm. I made both. We have tried to meet up so I can deliver the items to her but shitty weather intervened. She just messaged me and said she can only afford the bracelet right now but she loves the zipper charm and she's so bummed she can't afford both. Good grief, between the two it's $20.

I have been there. I know what it was like to want something pretty but couldn't afford it. Hell, I still have to think twice before buying anything, but I'm in a slightly better situation than she is. So.. tomorrow I will deliver both to her. I will ask only $10. I will tell her to pay it forward. I'm not telling you this to get a pat on the back. I'm telling you this because it's never a bad idea to do something nice for someone. So... go do something nice for someone

Stay safe morons.. love you all.

Sarsour, a co-organizer for the National Women's March, said that if someone doesn't mind former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio running for Senate in Arizona, but has a problem with Manning, that person is a "hypocrite."

"If you are cool with Sheriff Arpaio running for Senate in Arizona but up in arms that Chelsea Manning is running in Maryland - you my friend are a HYPOCRITE.

148 OK, so they believe they have identified human fleas and lice as disease vectors; but what about the disease? Bacterial? Viral?

There's no such disease as 'lice' or 'fleas'.

The veterinarian anecdote suggests the sneezing cat dispersed some kind of pathological agent. What was it? Was it airborne? What did the sneeze have to do with fleas/lice on humans?

Why the decades long hiatus between outbreaks? Is this a rickettsial disease (typhus: which can be transmitted by fleas/lice)? Why is Yersenia pestis specifically eliminated other than computer modeling and researchers judgement? If they can use DNA to identify the disease they can also use it to eliminate.

My personal theory is that the MIddle Ages plagues were the results of cascading conditions leading to multiple disease forms. Poor hygene, ignorance of disease causation, water pollution, non-existent waste management, and the introduction of a new disease causing agent (even if only through mutation) for which the populace had no immunological defenses.

Once an outbreaks burned itself out the people returned to their own norms of village/City life. In time a new disease agent appeared and the process was repeated.

An interesting article but scant on information.

Bi-polar or Manic depressive maybe? Her highs were really high and her lows were really low. If the low part gets too low then suicide. Not a mental health expert but just an observer. My late BiL had mental health issues (compounded with alcoholism). Those behaviors were noticeable. He wound up drinking himself to death. Don't mess around with mental health folks. Get help.

IIRC the proximate cause to the spread of the Plague to Western Europe was a group of refugees from the Genovese colonies fleeing home.

The Mongols decided to fire plague infect bodies into the city they were besieging. This caused an outbreak of plague, and between the Mongols and the disease the defenders decided to give up.

By the way that was very peaceful of the Religion of Peace adherents no?

229 "More than 100 lawmakers, led by a New York Republican and Rhode Island Democrat, have called on the Trump administration to reverse its decision to pull climate change as a threat from the National Security Strategy."

Let's me honest. If it isn't something that can be shot, stabbed, or blown up, and it can't be prevented from stabbing, shooting, or blowing up, it isn't a threat that our national security strategy should consider. It isn't as though such threats shouldn't be considered at all, but no deployment of spies, missiles, soldiers, or bombs will do anything about the threat, and expending resources on things that are non-core will likely be as useful as setting the same resources on fire.

Terrible tonight -- heat pump went out. 2" of snow, and 18F tonight, with roads iced over. Thought I was gonna be in a mess, and have to break out some back-up heat, which meant some scrambling the cold, freezing my delicate little testicles off.

But turned out, it was a problem with the indoor blower motor. It failed to start one cycle, and let the compressor overpressure and the heat strips overheat, tripping the protection. Now, I got the blower motor to come back on -- after consultation with my HVAC man buddy, turns out to be a known failure with these units. It's a time delay thingy circuit on the blower motor start control.

Won't bore you, but as long as I leave the blower ON all the time, it's working. 'Til he can get out here with the replacement part.

Kbdabear has posted his wonderfulness, and I'm still leery of that blower motor, so I probably won't get to foul the ficus tonight.

So all of ya'll foul yours for me tonight.

In special and off year elections, GOP usually turns out at a higher rate. Last year, across the country in special and general elections, the Dems have been turning out in mass while the GOP has been sitting home. Regardless of who is to blame or not, this has become a noticeable trend.

Good to hear. It may not make her a Christian, but if my experience is anything to go by, it will train her mind in new ways, mainly because society tries to stifle critical thought such as he teaches. And it should give her respect for it, and a challenge to at least study it in depth.

I heard that the turnout was around 13%, which would be very low for even a non-Presidential year election. So I would be worried but only so that we get our organizations going early and as strong as possible. The left is rabidly invested in the upcoming elections; they're going to turn out even if SMOD hits before the election. We have to match them, which we should be able to do.

If we don't, we lose. I think it will be that simple.

Ok, lets pretend that we can choose our climate, because pretending is the only way this makes any sense.

Who can deal with a bad climate better, us, or our shithole enemies? What's in our National Security Interest is to make the weather even worse!

313 They have yellowtail sushi and waygu beef. Why do they need to fuck
around with all this poisonous exotic tropical fish crap? Friggin
asians. Opium sodden fiends.

Actually, they're related.

People
don't eat the fugu because the fish tastes so great and the diners take
a chance on all of the poison organ having been removed; the trick is
that a small amount of the poison is kept in the fish on purpose because
it gives the eater a bit of a rush as it makes you feel tingly (I can't
recall if my buddy who taught English in Japan said 'just in the
extremities' or 'all over') and I guess the allure of danger as well. So
the trick is keeping just the right amount of poison in the fish to
bring on the tingly effect without killing the eater!

I think I'd rather cross my legs weird while sitting on my hands to get a tingly feeling than eating puffer.

Steppenwulf's "Monster" was pretty great too.

Once the religious, the hunted and weary
Chasing the promise of freedom and hope
Came to this country to build a new vision
Far from the reaches of kingdom and pope
Like good Christians, some would burn the witches
Later some got slaves to gather riches

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
And she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

And once the ties with the crown had been broken
Westward in saddle and wagon it went
And 'til the railroad linked ocean to ocean
Many the lives which had come to an end
While we bullied, stole and bought our a homeland
We began the slaughter of the red man

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
And she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

The blue and grey they stomped it
They kicked it just like a dog
And when the war over
They stuffed it just like a hog

And though the past has it's share of injustice
Kind was the spirit in many a way
But it's protectors and friends have been sleeping
Now it's a monster and will not obey

(Suicide)
The spirit was freedom and justice
And it's keepers seem generous and kind
It's leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind
'Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
And now their vote is a meaningless joke
They babble about law and order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told
Yeah, there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watchin'

Our cities have turned into jungles
And corruption is stranglin' the land
The police force is watching the people
And the people just can't understand
We don't know how to mind our own business
'Cause the whole worlds got to be just like us
Now we are fighting a war over there
No matter who's the winner
We can't pay the cost
'Cause there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watching

(America)
America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now
We can't fight alone against the monster

356 I think we should call them the "Falsies" instead but here are President Trump's two lists:

The Highly-Anticipated 2017 Fake News Awards
1. The New York Times' Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump's historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover.

2. ABC News' Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.

3. CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.

4. TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.

5. Washington Post FALSELY reported the President's massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.

6. CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.

7. CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci's meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a "significant breakdown in process."

8. Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump's hand.

9. CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump's claim that he was told he is not under investigation.

10. The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.

11. And last, but not least: "RUSSIA COLLUSION!" Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!

While the media spent 90% of the time focused on negative coverage or fake news, the President has been getting results:

1. The economy has created nearly 2 million jobs and gained over $8 trillion in wealth since the President's inauguration.

2. African Americans and Hispanics are enjoying the lowest unemployment rate in recorded history.

3. The President signed historic tax cuts and relief for hardworking Americans not seen since President Reagan.

4. President Trump's plan to cut regulations has exceeded "2 out for every 1 in" mandate, issuing 22 deregulatory actions for every one new regulatory action.

5. The President has unleashed an American energy boom by ending Obama-era regulations, approving the Keystone pipeline, auctioning off millions of new acres for energy exploration, and opening up ANWR.

6. ISIS is in retreat, having been crushed in Iraq and Syria.

7. President Trump followed through on his promise to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel and instructed the State Department to begin to relocate the Embassy.

8. With President Trump's encouragement, more member nations are paying their fair share for the common defense in the NATO alliance.

9. Signed the Veterans Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act to allow senior officials in the VA to fire failing employees and establishes safeguards to protect whistleblowers.

10. President Trump kept his promise and appointed Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court.

of its streets during the morning and evening rush hours.

Posted by: pookysgirl at January 17, 2018 09:36 PM (XKZwp)

Oh, I'm sure they'd use their police to follow and track people (say, by recording license plate numbers) and then sic them on people.

I don't know if this still goes on, but the San Antonio suburb of Hill Country Village at least tried it some years back. The city government decided that having people drive through its neighborhoods to dodge heavy traffic on US 281 was simply awful so it began doing the same thing. As I say, I don't know if it is still going on. But it was at least tried. I figured it would be easier to wall off the town much like West Berlin and call it good.

Governments are truly filled with idiots.

And another toast to you, sir. Your love for Faye reminds us, reinforces our grasp of the meaning of Honor and Devotion.

I'll do my small part, and shall mourn and miss a Lady who I'd never met, but through your praise, adoration and loss.

Peace, Brother Moron. Peace.

402 The dims are misreading these special elections. Their victories in AL and WI 10th were based on total lack of turn out on the GOP side. In Al, I think Moore only got half the vote that Trump got. In WI 19th, much worse, the GOP candidate got 56.5 K in a 26% win while the GOP guy last night got 9.8 K in a 10% loss. A little GOTV should remedy this
Posted by: sofa saver at January 17, 2018 09:57

I agree, these off season things are weird, esp. the AL thing w/ Moore. The WI thing was so local that has no bearing, but it was a Rep. district.

I thik the Dems are I trouble I the Se., 10 ruig I staes Trumo wo. The House, yeah the party I power usually loses some, but do to gerrymandering there are few competitive districts.

There may be a big play as to how the media continues to portray Trump as a lunatic. It didn't sell in the election, but this in 2018 isn't a presitendial election. Will the press have discredited themselves enough so people generally ignore them?

My paternal grandmother collected Victorian era pressed-glass goblets. After she passed away, most of them went to a museum, but my grandfather saw to it that each grandchild received eight of them.

That triggered a latent collecting gene, and I have since then picked up one here and there when encountered. They make a nice display.

582 Ah, nice. Grenade attack on police station in Malmo, Sweden (Malmo is the most diverse, culturally enriched, colorful burg in Sweden, FYI).


Amazingly, somebody with the security police was quoted as saying "violent Islamist extremism" is the greatest threat in Sweden. Not likely a translation issue, and in any case Swedes mostly speak excellent English.


There have been a rash of grenade incidents recently, and apparently grenades are readily available, for reasonable prices.


Same cop said they were following 3,000 "hot" suspects in monitoring for terrorist attacks. That's a pretty impressive number in a country that size.


One can only imagine the actual private thoughts of millions of Swedes, who dare not say anything openly.

608 The story I read about the Black Death was that Europe had just gone through one of its periodic anti-witch binges, part of which entailed killing as many cats as they could, as cats were deemed as linked to witches.

How the the plague spread? Via fleas on rats. What did cats normally keep in check? Rats and mice.

What was missing when the Black Death reached Europe? Boy, serendipity can be a bitch.

Anyway, I use these All non-scented pods. In the dishwasher, which is an older one made for powder, I tried the pods for it. I loved them, much better than the powder. Of course, I've got to manually throw the pod in at the start of the main wash cycle after the prewash.

Posted by: Cicero (@cicero) at January 17, 2018 11:13 PM (KfgLN)


========

Gah. The strongest argument against docetism is that there is nothing in the canonical Gospels to support it. It's all subsequent gnostic speculation that goes against the plain narration of the four narratives of the crucifixion. The only reason people believed it is because their prior biases demanded that they believe it.

Docetism is also expressed in Sura 4:157 as well. It is a case of forming your conclusion not based on the facts, but based on your ideological commitments before you examined the facts. "Surely a prophet (according to Islam) or a God (according to gnosticism) could not have undergone something so humiliating. Therefore it could not have happened".

It's the same retarded reasoning that LIBERALS use. "Surely all cultures are equal. So if some countries are shitholes, it must be because they are oppressed by us", etc.

You start with an ideological commitment and you ignore everything else that follows.

643 For unscented detergents, it's hard to beat the many varieties of such offered at your local Hunting Emporium.

And the chlorophyll based versions impart a very fresh, clean, yet un-perfumed bouquet to your fabrics.

Should you be in the truly predatory mode though, do return from a scouting trip to your hunting locale, with a pillowcase half-full of that site's local vegetation.

Toss that tightly tied pillowcase into the clothes dryer with all of your Hunting Apparel, when there's about 10 or 15 minutes left in the drying cycle.

Your clothes will reek of the grass, fields and trees of where you hunt, but not of "you".

Oh, and you do know to NOT brush your teeth with "toothpaste" before setting afield? Might as well light a bonfire of artificial scent in your blind.

Brush with just water and a wee bit of baking soda. It's a scent killer. And your breath needs to die, anyway, as it smells as if you already did.

But you didn't need me to tell you that, of course.

Northern.

You've spoken of the chirp of her voice, and the music of her laugh.

Surely... you or someone in your family gatherings, has captured cellphone video of such?

Or even, older video, from the days when actual video cameras roamed the Earth.

Point is, this is my invitation to you, to share her with us.

If you'll send the archived files to Slapweasel, I can guarantee you that your doing so will result in a separate, dedicated AoS post, dedicated to the memory of your Faye, and featuring the unique and blessed music of her voice, laughter, smile and lovely visage.

Teh Horde will sing forth in a praise, tribute and memorial to her, such as you cannot yet imagine.

Let us embrace her, and in so doing, you.

My job, man. I also used to read East European publications to get a grasp on what the Commies were thinking.

If you dive into Cosmo once in a while, it's like going into bait shop with some idea of what they're biting.

Also, on some occasions, when the girls do what Cosmo tells them to, you get to go home yelling "THAT WAS MAGNIFICENT! I READ YOUR BOOK!!"

716 Northern Lurker: My sincerest sympathy for you and your family. I kind of get the sense that your wife's passing was both sudden and unexpected. If so, my sympathy is doubled.

This is going to sound stupid, but it comes from forty years of reading Ann Landers and Dear Abby. Try not to make any serious life changes in the next couple of years. Unless it was something you had already planned, don't sell your house, sell some property you and your wife had plans for, cash out all your savings, etc. I do not know how many times surviving spouses wrote in to Ann and Abby a couple years later, lamenting the decisions they had made in the fog of immediate grief. Two years seems to be about the median time to learn how to live without your other half. Don't let people push you into pretending you've achieved "closure" (what a dumb concept). They're not you. Deal with it your way.

Be well and believe you will find the strength to get through this horrible time.

That's considerate of you.

^THIS^

This "closure" concept began in the days of 'Milk-Carton Children'.

If your child is missing and you hold out hope for them to be alive, perhaps you can understand "closure".

Other than that, it is just some retard's dreamy mumbo-jumbo way to while away the time.

The wisdom of "no major decisions for at least two years": very, VERY sound.

My brother pushed my mother to sell the house (not our family home; rather, the place where she & Dad moved after his retirement) a few months after Dad's quite unexpected passing. But thankfully, someone gave her the "two years' window" advice, and we're both very glad she took it.

730 I'd like to write something down that is running through my mind as I lie here unable to sleep.
Dear Faye, my beautiful Queen,
Take sometime to rest
Let Heaven become acquainted with your beautiful smile,
And your wonderful laugh,
Wait for me,
Well since your in eternity where time is no more you won't have to wait,
Or since 1,000 years is but a day maybe you only have half an hour to wait
Now my head hurts
On your side you possess, on this side I long,
On your side you have joy, on this side I grieve
But I will see you again.

Thanks for letting me ramble

Trump's Basic Instincts About the Political War Are Essentially Right, and The Establishment's Sense of It Is Essentially Wrong

Very good piece by Joe Katzman for the Daily Caller.

Short version: The right attempts political persuasion. The left, on the other hand, attempts social persuasion -- basically seizing the commanding heights of culture-making institutions and then deciding that espousing some political claims (being pro-gay-marriage) increase social status and that espousing other political claims (being against gay marriage) decrease social status and, indeed, make one a social pariah, fit for ostracism, mass mockery, and internal exile.

The left's method works much better than the right's. It always has and it always will. Because most people don't care about politics all that much -- but nearly everyone (except for the crankiest of contrarians, including some of the current assembled company) cares about their social status.

Having higher social status gets you invites to the Cocktail Party Circuit, which is a real thing, defined broadly (and metaphorically) enough. It makes you datable, it makes you "clubbable," as the old term went.

It can get you promoted at work, particularly if the sort of job you do is a bit vague as far as definite, tangible outputs and thus advancement depends more on how upper management feels about you.

While the left wing continues winning arguments by not even having arguments at all, instead simply demonizing those who espouse any contrary position, the #SmartSet (citation required) of the establishment right continues believing, apparently earnestly and definitely ridiculously, that if they just out argue their political competitors, they'll change minds.

They won't. Or not enough to actually matter. Because most people don't really care enough about these issues to really engage with them on an intellectual level; they just want to know what to claim to believe so that other people won't think they're weird, and deem them unfriendable, undatable, and poor candidates for promotion inside The Corporation.

Trump's manner of engaging with The Blob of left-wing virtue-signalling and status-conferring is to attempt to degrade the left wing cultural Borg of its own social status, thereby reducing its ability to set tastes, serve as "gatekeepers" of what the right-minded people agree are proper attitudes and beliefs, and demonize dissenters.

This is often ugly -- but that's how the sausage gets made. It does not matter if you produce a well-researched and well-cited bit of argument as to your position if the cultural princelings of the left can simply say "You're a Nazi and you hate women" and thereby, with seven stupid words, raze not only your argument but your entire claim to basic human dignity.

The only way to rob them of that ability is to reduce their own social status to a low level. You cannot confer or reduce social status unless you yourself have a great deal of it.

There's another aspect to this as well: Part of the reason some on the "Reputable Right" continue to act as confirmatory agents of the cultural left's social status. That is, they themselves act as if the cultural left's doyennes are indeed owed deference and do in fact possess high status, and do indeed therefore enjoy the lordly privilege of elevating, or degrading, the social status of those lower in the social hierarchy.

It is, of course, an age-old right of the nobility to confer (lesser) noble status on a commoner -- raising him to a baronet, say -- or to strip a lower-ranking noble of his status.

The establishment right/the self-claimed #SmartSet continues to act as if the cultural left has this lordly power because the lords of the left return the favor in a small way, permitting those on the nominal right who salute the flag of the left to at least attend their courts and hold on to the meager privileges of very low-level nobility.

They're sub-nobles, but at least the lords have recognized their superiority over the commoners and peasants.

Thus, this is a relationship that benefits both the Lords of the Left and its minor courtiers of the right: The minor courtiers of the right reify and confirm the exalted position of the Lords of the Left, while the Lords of the Left confer a small amount of social status on the establishment/liberal-leaning/#SmartSet right. Not a lot of social status, of course-- just enough to say they're better than the rest of the riff-raff.

Just enough that the petty nobles of the subjugated right can call themselves "respectable" in their Lords' eyes.

There is only one way to change this entirely-unacceptable arrangement: that is for the right to greatly increase the social status of at least some cadres of the right, so that some members of the right will themselves have the lordly power to raise and reduce social status.

But that seems almost impossible, and, furthermore, I don't think the right can really agree on which cadre to elevate to lordly status. And of course no one has more social status than the majority of the public agrees they have; who would be convinced if tomorrow most of the right-wing agreed mutually that, say, Brit Hume ought to be considered a National Lord?

The other alternative is, of course, to destroy (or degrade) the social status of the Lords of the Left. That's also hard, but it's easier to destroy than to create.

This involves a lot of base mockery and ridicule, something that the petty nobles of the liberal-leaning nominal right find horrifying when a right-winger does it, but don't seem to notice or at least care that their masters, the Lords of the Left, do nothing but this.

As they do it to other members of the right, not the eager courtiers seeking the blessings of the Lords of the Left, the petty nobility of the right permits it, and even engages in it themselves, to further ingratiate themselves with the courtly class.

The hell with that. It's time for pitchforks and torches.

A shorter way to say this is just to quote Andrew Breitbart: "Politics is downstream of culture."

Breitbart attempted that -- he did not act like a Pet Petty Noble for the true ruling class; rather, he challenged them and humiliated them -- and for that he was savaged by the defenders of the Lords of the Left, like David Frum, who just wouldn't know what to do with himself if the ruling class withdrew his "tolerated" status from him.

29 One of the things that tuned me into the deep, deep rot of the establishment right is that as the left got more and more unhinged, did more and more unspeakable things...and kept winning...was that the GOPers doubled down on the "fight like a gentleman crap".

If you had asked a David Brooks in the year 2000, is it possible in 20 years that not only would gay marriage be a right, but that the government would be forcing people to participate in these abominations, he would have called you crazy and said something along the lines of "Americans would never stand for the government doing that."

47 I recently started rereading The Prince, it's amazing to think he wrote 500 years ago. You'd think Machiavelli was lurking here. From chapter 6:
"It should be borne in mine that there is nothing more difficult to manage, or more doubtful of success, or more dangerous to handle than to take the lead in introducing a new order of things. For the innovator has enemies in all those who are doing well under the old order, and he has only lukewarm defenders in all those who would do well under the new order."
Tell me that doesn't describe our current situation.

Because the elements of the right actually have ideals and beliefs. And also, our leaders are generally self absorbed, short sighted pricks.

The left can almost always get behind any random clown of any leftwing faction, because the only question is who gets more of the loot from the treasury.

Look at say a Roy Moore. The guy is clearly affiliated with the "Religious Right". But there is also no serious question that he would have advanced the cause of every serious faction of the right...yes even the Libertarians.

But we had idiots running around screaming the sky was failing if he got elected...and not just because of the sex hoax. Idiots at least nominally on the right thought Roy Moore could individually ban condoms or stupid crap like that.

Most people get their 'politics" in this way. They don't have genuine convictions; they just imitate what they see others doing.

Many people do this in all facets of their lives that they don't care that much about. If you don't care about something and therefore haven't read up on it, you'll just do what most people do.

I know that when I've gone through some bureaucratic process, like buying auto insurance, and I'm asked which of three options I want, I will frequently just ask: "What do MOST PEOPLE do?!"

Because there is a expiration date and we need to be prepared and we need to start now.

I just hope that somewhere someone can pick up the torch and carry it after Trump.

And why can't we get an actual conservative network or a conservative national paper going?

Instead of donating all their money to politicians, some on the right could put some money in a few communication outlets so the right could have a steady voice.

Start now while the stock in conservativism is high so as to build a following and maybe even some converts.

116 It's not so much about losing social status as it is about losing your job or your ability to make a living. The left wins arguments not because they are better at ridicule but because they control the power to punish and destroy.

Trump's a billionaire now but he's been rich all his life. He has never had to worry about paying his mortgage or providing for his family. I know a few trust fund babies and they do whatever they want and say whatever they want because at the end of the day they don't really lose any social status and more importantly they don't lose anything economically.

I love what Trump is doing but I am also under no illusion that lots of what he is doing is because he doesn't really give a fuck, he and his family will never suffer, and the more the left tries to harm him the further right he moves, further than he has ever been in his life if for no other reason than to punch back. He has that freedom.

The more institutions that Trump destroys or at least neuters that have the power to harm the more we will see ordinary people speak out. We are out here, we put him in office over Hillary despite all odds but we did it mostly anonymously. Once the tipping point is reached where people are really free to speak their minds you will see a lot more people speaking out freely and loudly. Trump like.

Posted by: JackStraw at January 17, 2018 07:44 PM (/tuJf)

117 I don't know if it's *instinct* that causes Trump to succeed as much as it is a Don't-Give-a-Fuck personality type that his opponents - and the left in particular - has yet to figure out. To that extent, Trump's been lucky in his enemies.

I routinely mock the Nine-Dimensional-Chutes-and-Ladders explanations for why Trump has succeeded. The truth is, he's not all that knowledgeable or crafty. He's not a strategic genius, whatever the guy who draws Dilbert thinks. He's actually really simple. But he wins because most of the left's typical weapons - which worked on every other Republican since the beginning of time - don't deal him any damage. And yet the left keeps swinging those weapons around anyway, eventually hitting themselves.

Trump just doesn't give a fuck. He doesn't give a fuck about offending you. He doesn't give a fuck if he's right on the facts. He doesn't give a fuck if what he's saying now contradicts what he said five minutes ago and what he'll say five minutes from now. Zero fucks given.

When you don't give a fuck, the weapon of shaming has no effect on you. The left (and the #SalonHot25) tries to shame him with the rules of decorum, with "have you no decency, sir?" with Muh Principles. But the truth is that Trump doesn't have all that much decency. Or rather, he doesn't give a fuck about decency.

Trump can't be bullied by the left because he hits back at bullies, and their taunts don't motivate him. That's why he's different than every other Republican, and so effective: he refuses to play the game by the left's rigged rules.

There is, I suspect, a way to counter Trump on this. But The left hasn't figured this out. They just yell louder and louder and louder about how awful he is, what a racist he is, how he's bringing The Handmaid's Tale to life. The more they yell, the more ridiculous they sound. They're the ones who sound awful. The racism charge just doesn't stick. And no one actually thinks Trump wants women to cover up.

I've got a lot of problems with Trump, but the fact that he's breaking the rules isn't one of them. The rules are rigged.

144 most people invest time and effort to research big-ticket purchases -- home, car, computer, etc. -- but for relatively cheap ones, like a landline phone, a lot of people will just go with "Amazon's Choice."

The time spent researching that question is basically a loss-- you spent a dollar's worth of time to save pennies. bad use of time.

As in: "So why do you think it's a good idea to kill babies?"

Don't let them dissemble, because they will try to tell you "it isn't a baby, it's a clump of cells," or some other deflection. The reply is, "So am I. Now, why do you think it's okay to kill babies?"

Just don't stop.

Eventually they will freak out.

They will stomp their feet.

They will call you crazy.

They will whine, and eventually they will walk away shaking their heads.

And still, they will not answer the question.

Because they can't.

If the truth is on your side, use it. Mercilessly.

158 117 I don't know if it's *instinct* that causes Trump to succeed as much as it is a Don't-Give-a-Fuck personality type that his opponents - and the left in particular - has yet to figure out. To that extent, Trump's been lucky in his enemies.

I routinely mock the Nine-Dimensional-Chutes-and-Ladders explanations for why Trump has succeeded. The truth is, he's not all that knowledgeable or crafty. He's not a strategic genius, whatever the guy who draws Dilbert thinks. He's actually really simple. But he wins because most of the left's typical weapons - which worked on every other Republican since the beginning of time - don't deal him any damage. And yet the left keeps swinging those weapons around anyway, eventually hitting themselves.

Trump just doesn't give a fuck. He doesn't give a fuck about offending you. He doesn't give a fuck if he's right on the facts. He doesn't give a fuck if what he's saying now contradicts what he said five minutes ago and what he'll say five minutes from now. Zero fucks given.

When you don't give a fuck, the weapon of shaming has no effect on you. The left (and the #SalonHot25) tries to shame him with the rules of decorum, with "have you no decency, sir?" with Muh Principles. But the truth is that Trump doesn't have all that much decency. Or rather, he doesn't give a fuck about decency.

Trump can't be bullied by the left because he hits back at bullies, and their taunts don't motivate him. That's why he's different than every other Republican, and so effective: he refuses to play the game by the left's rigged rules.

There is, I suspect, a way to counter Trump on this. But The left hasn't figured this out. They just yell louder and louder and louder about how awful he is, what a racist he is, how he's bringing The Handmaid's Tale to life. The more they yell, the more ridiculous they sound. They're the ones who sound awful. The racism charge just doesn't stick. And no one actually thinks Trump wants women to cover up.

I've got a lot of problems with Trump, but the fact that he's breaking the rules isn't one of them. The rules are rigged.

161 The other night on some talking head show on Fox, they were once again talking about Gitmo.

Some Democrat mouthpiece was going on and on, about how Gitmo should be closed, with the remaining detainees released for "time served". Regardless of how he was rebutted, by "these people are dangerous" (Khalid Sheik Mohammed, mastermind of 9/11?), etc., the drone was the same.

I would have asked him, since Obama was President for 8 years and an enlightened Democrat, why didn't he take care of this? I mean his pal at AG, Eric Holder, was part of the law firm that specialized in defending these lizards.

It's a talking point to spear people with. Nothing more. Who knows if the Democrats would do it, but it's like a lot of other Faux issues; something to be an idiot about on TV, yet speak Truth to Power, or some such nonsense.

This will again become a Democrat "phrase that pays" for the next few years. Closing Gitmo. Because Obama just couldn't do it. Poor guy. It was the NCAA March Madness brackets.

Listening to people on TV utter absolute stupid drivel, that should be batted down easily and then hooted off the camera, is so frustrating. The Media in all its forms exists to further controversy, because that brings in the ratings.

176 These points are all well made, but they are also frustratingly obvious. Of course the establishment right treats the left as its social betters; it was baked into the foundation of the modern right by its architect, William Buckley. He was always fixated on trying to win arguments with leftists, not to win arguments with the country, and always to engage the left in a manner that wouldn't preclude sharing a nice glass of port at the club at the end of the day. He deeply regretted the one time he gave it to the left like they deserved, with Gore Vidal in 1968. When he died his eulogists stressed how many leftists came to his funeral, how awsome his dinner parties were, how "congenial" he was, but now how he changed the arc of the politics in this country. The modern right was never built to stop the left; it was structured to oppose it in ways that would not be too offensive to our leftist overlords.

Deep down, they know there is a hell and they are headed to it, but they are angry because they would have to relinquish their will to be able to avoid it. They see Christians being happy about something they cannot see because they refuse to look.

I have seen a rabid atheist convert, and it was a beautiful thing. The light of Christ just took away every shadow. Right about when the convert says and actually means, "Thy will be done." That's the point where they discover the prison they have been in and just how free they can become by giving up their own stubborn will.

This is the key, I think. They are more interested in the good opinion of the other people at cocktail parties than the people who elected them. This not only shows stupidity, but also brazen contempt.

At the same time, they want to lecture their own electorate about why they are doing what they are doing.

This is not something that can last long term.

One of the arguments against and for, frankly Trump was that he would burn the system down. I was not necessarily in favor of the system in the primaries, but I was also not convinced that it was a completely corrupt edifice.

I was wrong. Trump, and the reaction to Trump has shown just how deep the rot goes. At this point, it needs to be gutted.

As an atheist: rabid atheists generally have a screw loose. Atheism is a position with the sole advantage of being a product of rational reflection and nothing else. AStheism per se has nothing else, socially, spiritually, artistically, whateverly going for it. So if you are rabid about it, it's because you either haven't considered at length (yet) what people are, and what you are, and how you got there, or you have issues. A rabid atheist is like an ecstatic stoic. YMMV

My experience with OTA is that forcing this particularly HD technology had to be a plot by cable companies to reduce the reach of broadcast television.

244 Speaking of Trump and his fucking insane economy....

I mentioned last week I think that I was testing the market out for new jobs. Had a series of interviews with a company, including flying out to HQ and then was ignored. Well ignored no longer, they offered me the position yesterday. Although I said fuck off, if you wait that long to get back to me.

But other than that since the start of the new year, it's been non-stop calls from recruiters. And not fake Indian recruiters with bullshit jobs. Actual recruiters, from actual companies with actual jobs. It's getting to the point where I don't want to talk to anyone anymore. I know, good problem to have

But I can't remember another time like this when there was such a palpable appetite by employers to hire.

So this is why even though you will never see a mention of the economy in the NYT, WaPo or on CNN, the common voters has to be seeing this in their day to day world.

Question is will they believe the NYT's lies or their own eyes? And I really don't know what the answer is.

That was before my time, but as far as I can tell, the Birchers were at least 90% right. And they were widely mocked and ridiculed, no thanks to Buckley.

I think charges of racism and antisemitism were overblown, and were mostly leftist smears. I don't think the Birchers were much different from mainstream Americans in that respect. Their main focus was anti-Communism, not racial purity or anything like that.

246 There is something that I have been dying to say that fits right into this.

In social situations, the people who defend the existing social order are not JUST the people who benefit from it. No. They are also the people who sacrificed to be in it. Imagine the years of having to mouth the silly platitudes of the left, to pretend to believe their feverous orthodoxies, and suddenly be told, that this long term debasement of self was for naught.

That is why they sooooo feverously hate Trump - he is rich, successful, has power and influence, has a gorgeous wife, and doesn't give a rat fuck what they think. He scaled the heights, and didn't have to debase himself, constantly. It angers them, it infuriates them, but it also frightens them, badly. What if the right schools, the right breeding, the right beliefs, the catechisms of the left have NO meaning? What if your entire life has been a lie?

Yeah, but he didn't lose by so much that it's obvious that a little less bailing might not have helped him.

Apply what the article is saying. His loss of status over some pretty iffy stuff and the subsequent abandonment by prominent figures on the right made him the wounded animal that everybody was trying to walk past.

It's not because there were solid arguments against his character that would have applied to ANYBODY else--it's because in the status pool, he was a wounded animal, and people read the reactions of other people to kind of guide their decisions.

I mean, this was unprecedented abandonment by his party--it wasn't logical arguments against his fitness--it was the his low status--as somebody who the Democrats even started spreading the fear would instantly prey on teenage girl pages in Congress!!

254 Short version: The right attempts political persuasion. The left, on the other hand, attempts social persuasion

It's more a matter of the Left having gone through the Gramscian March for well over a century engaging in Fabian socialism (and its like), while most of the rest of us were unaware, of the magnitude, if not scheme itself.

Having higher social status gets you invites to the Cocktail Party Circuit

Not everyone is obsessed about the proverbial "Cocktail" parties...

While the left wing continues winning arguments by not even having arguments at all, instead simply demonizing those who espouse any contrary position, the #SmartSet (citation required) of the establishment right continues believing, apparently earnestly and definitely ridiculously, that if they just out argue their political competitors, they'll change minds.

Superficially.

The Left changes the fundamentals so that when their Fabian little hearts Satanic bloog pumps feel it's right, they simply have to declare their position and the populace flips.

Gay marriage didn't happen because of some media talking head or some celebrity t**t, but all the little minions spreading the disease, most of whom did not realize the goal that they are making manifest.

"Trump's manner of engaging with The Blob of left-wing virtue-signalling and status-conferring is to attempt to degrade the left wing cultural Borg of its own social status, thereby reducing its ability to set tastes, serve as "gatekeepers" of what the right-minded people agree are proper attitudes and beliefs, and demonize dissenters."

While some minor rearguard action may as a last resort have to be fought this way, all this is really doing is raging against disposable pawn while cathartically emoting.

They're sub-nobles, but at least the lords have recognized their superiority over the commoners and peasants.

Much as with the likes of Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Kurt "Sonny" Schlichter, &c.

The other alternative is, of course, to destroy (or degrade) the social status of the Lords of the Left. That's also hard, but it's easier to destroy than to create.

This involves a lot of base mockery and ridicule, something that the petty nobles of the liberal-leaning nominal right find horrifying when a right-winger does it, but don't seem to notice or at least care that their masters, the Lords of the Left, do nothing but this.


But, again, the "Lords of the Left" aren't. The media, the entertainment industry, even politicians are just pawns (though one may occasionally become a Queen, like Obama). Heck, at this point, there isn't even a coordinated conspiracy, with the early Gramscian marchers creating a Stand Alone Complex where elements of the Left all around mutually support each other while insulating themselves from those others that screw up or jump the gun.

The hell with that. It's time for pitchforks and torches.

And the sound and fury.

Posted by: Monk at January 17, 2018 08:02 PM (g4lFK)

I suspect that even more Christians have mistaken the line about meekness to mean we should be a bunch of pussies. Christ meant no such thing.

Never, not once, in the Bible does it say that being nice will get you into heaven.

Doing the will of His Father will. And I do not for one minute believe that His will is that we be nice to people who want us dead.

Paul puts it very specifically, and lists the things you must do. The Didache spells it out fairly clearly as well. Neither one says to let atheists steamroll you.

The Bible is also pretty clear about what love is, and how to live it. Not once does it say that getting your rocks off with anybody or anything means love, and should be promoted above all other things. Not once does it say to objectify your "partner" and then call that marriage. Not once does it say that orgasms are the highest and best goal of life.

It does, however, tell you who is behind all this nonsense. That would be the Father of Lies, and he is fairly easy to see once you start looking.

Being a Christian is not for the faint of heart.

They were absolutely overblown and outright false. I did some research on some of these groups from back in the 1950s years ago in school and read a few things related the JBS. They actually kicked out anyone who professed anti-semitism, including one of the founders. Revilo Oliver I think it was (cool palindrome name, dude!).

You can think whatever you want but apparently enough Alabamians didn't think that much of Moore long before this past race to support him and didn't think all that much of him this race.

All I heard here before the race was the national GOP didn't matter in Alabama because they were all RINOs and Alabama didn't care what they thought. Now all I hear is that the reason he didn't win against a guy who supports partial birth abortion pretty much till the baby is enrolled in college and other far left positions is because Mitch McConnell didn't bless him.

The whole race was a clusterfuck. If Bannon hadn't gotten involved and Luther Strange, the candidate Trump loudly and publicly and repeatedly had won the primary, there would be two Republican senators from Alabama right now instead of one.

Knights, peasants, whatever. The pledge is the thing.

As President Trump wholly demolishes expert consensus on foreign policy and economics, it is clear that ANYONE can step in to fill in the gap. I just decided to work on it myself. And given how articulate some of you are, you can too.

Tired of spineless people of the faith sitting on their hands and keeping their mouths closed when it's obvious that good Christian leaders are targeted when they become a threat to the established order.

We are the Red tribe. The Left is the Blue tribe.

If you want to be a member of the Blue tribe you will have to adopt Blue tribe ideology, along with their other customs and social mores. But the only real ideology of the Blue tribe is "The Blue tribe is always right."

Sometimes semi-treasonous members of the Red tribe like Mitt Romney and John McCain think they are popular with the Blue tribe so they try to run for POTUS. They quickly discover that the Blue tribe hates them too.

When Trump took over leadership of the Red tribe, the semi-treasonous members of the Red tribe were stripped of their status and therefore they despise Trump.

378 Sort of partially don't agree. In a way.


There's a lot of politics that is politics, not culture, and in that sphere the non-racist, non-authoritarians (as close as I'll come to saying "the right") has long needed to fight directly, substantively, and harshly.


Ridicule and mockery can be specific, substantive. Doesn't have to be general. Trump's insults to various deserving parties is fine, but there should be surrogates/allies, already in the public square, who take it to another level.


Of course there aren't, which isn't Trump's fault.


But the entire struggle doesn't have to consist of lowering someone social status - whatever that really means, in a practical sense. There's lots of room for taking on the most important pernicious lies and myths and nastily eviscerating them, and excoriating their proponents. Neutrals and some sheep will notice and understand. And resetting the framework for serious discussion, over time, works, and changes everything.

It is now DIGITAL.

No ghosting, no multipath problems.

Either the picture comes in fine, or it comes in and drops out repeatedly, or it doesn't work at all.

Have you tried it? Get a cheap antenna, and scan the digital broadcast TV channels. Give it a shot. If the antenna doesn't work, return it.

BTW, most digital channels are UHF.

422 >>Jack, if anyone in either party was doing their alleged job, Trump would never have made it out of the primary. His whole political platform was good, but trade in particular was kryptonite to FAB. They learned the lesson about being tailored to your opponent's weaknesses far too late, hence President Oprah, but re-elections are a referendum on your life under the incumbent.

>>Which is why Trump could win today, and almost certainly will win if the Uniparty is dumb enough to shut down the gov.

Every election stand on it's own, every circumstance is different and it makes no sense to not put every election in the context of the time whether it's incumbency, an open seat or the state of the country.

Eight years of Obama had an affect on the psyche of the electorate that 4 years didn't with an incumbent Obama or in an open seat after 8 years of Bush when Obama beat McCain.

The power of national Parties is clearly waning as evidenced by Trump and the fact that had it not been for massive cheating and the power of Super Delegates in the Democrat Party it is likely that Bernie would have come a lot closer to beating if not out right beaten Hillary.

People put was too much stock in the power of the national Parties these days when the poll after poll shows that people have lost faith in national institutions and are looking for answers outside the traditional paths. Bernie and Trump should be clear evidence of that.

If the economy continues to perform I expect Trump to win re-election in a walk regardless of what the media says or even what the GOP wants.

The other thing is that sticking it in the water supply is not the most effective way to administer it, and it administers fluoride to things that will get no benefit from it, like adults, and your laundry. Put the damn stuff, in tiny amounts, in food and drinks mainly consumed by children.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at January 17, 2018 08:45 PM (sD2WN)


Maybe it made sense to fluoridate the water in the 40s and 50s; I don't know. That was before my time.

But today we have fluoride toothpaste, fluoride mouthwash, and fluoride treatments at the dentist. Anybody can choose to get fluoride if they wish. There's no need to put it in the water, and in fact, my local water authority does not fluoridate. And they are hardly Birchers.

As far as oral health is concerned, which has had a greater impact, fluoridation or flossing? That's an honest question. I never heard of flossing until I was a teenager, and it seems to help a great deal in preventing gum disease.

460 "Trump won but he had a major assist from Hillary being unbelievably bad."

Hillary was anointed by the Inner Inner D party in a way that kept out any real competition. She had a political legacy that superficially made her look experienced and competent. She had the full support of an Administration-in-waiting with deep ties throughout the Borg Establishment. She got a multi-billion dollar in-kind contribution from MSM. The incumbent President went all-in for her, to the point of committing multiple felonies.

Hillary was the node of an amazing juggernaut rolling down the hill. It would have crushed the likes of Jeb or Marco.

So give Trump some credit for stopping the juggernaut. He did a lot to turn tables and expose Hillary.

Posted by: JackStraw at January 17, 2018 08:52 PM (/tuJf)

I think this is the only part I disagree with in any way. Was the electorate that much less enthused after 8 years of Obama than 4 years? Obviously we were, yes, but we are already on the hard right. Hillary enjoyed a money and press advantage that not even Obama had, and she needed it to make up for her repulsive personality. I think there were a lot of people hurt by globalization that ended up switching from Democrat... and I think it is these people who will most enthusiastically support the Trump economic miracle.

He got 262,641 of 481,146 cast in the earlier run off.

So the Republicans got votes that didn't bother to vote in the primary and run off, which is good but, the Democrats turned out 673,896 for Doug Jones when Hillary Clinton only got 729,547 votes in 2016.

Trump polled 1,318,255 in 2016.

527 "it makes you "clubbable,"

Remember when W. proposed an Amendment to define marriage? Then he went mysteriously radio silent. I always had the feeling his wife told him to sit down and shut up. He certainly did.

I also think he abandoned the soldiers he asked to fight in Iraq. But that's another story.

This post brings to mind Warden's post from last Jan. 25: How Losing My Political Values Helped Me Gain My Freedom

[...]"He's a bully! Is this what you want? Someone who uses his power to bully other people?!!!"

And this is where everything funnels down to the very nexus of my change in attitude from "Do unto others" to "I will do unto you what you do unto me."

It's two words: Memories Pizza.

It was that moment that everything changed for me--not only the harassment, fake Yelp reviews and the death threats that forced them to temporarily close up shop--oh, that was bad enough, but the most powerful man on Earth bullying a couple of small town pizza owners from Indiana simply for expressing an opinion on a hypothetical asked of them by a reporter with a malicious agenda? That was when I snapped.

Do you remember?

It's this that sent me to a place from which I'll never return. I literally don't care what Donald Trump does because nothing he can do is worse than what they've already done.

Donald Trump isn't the bully; he only insults and abuses people in power who have attacked him. They're the fucking bullies. The left, with their smears, their witch hunts, their slanders, their insults, their riots, their violence, and their weaponizing of the federal bureaucracy.

There aren't any rules anymore because the left only applies them one way. And in doing so, they've left what once was a civil compact between the two parties in smoldering ruins.

I have no personal investment in Donald Trump. He is a tool to punish the left and roll back their ill-gotten gains, no more and no less. If he succeeds even partially in those two things, then I'll consider his election a win.

Further, I no longer have any investment in any particular political values, save one: The rules created by the left will be applied to the left as equally and punitively as they have applied them to the right. And when they beg for mercy, I'll begin to reconsider. Or maybe not. Because fuck these people.

This new philosophy has freed me of more emotional angst that I can describe. Literally nothing the left says or does matters to me anymore. I don't care about their tantrums. I don't care about their accusations. I don't care if they say Trump is lying. I don't care if Trump is lying.

They created this Frankenstein. They own it. I am free of all obligation. I will never play defense again. I will attack, attack, attack, attack using their own tactics against them until they learn their lesson.

What I will not do is let them play my values against me ever again. I don't need to prove that I'm better than them. I already know it.".......

Word.

what he is doing is because he doesn't really give a fuck, he and his
family will never suffer, and the more the left tries to harm him the
further right he moves, further than he has ever been in his life if for
no other reason than to punch back. He has that freedom.
"

I have to disagree with this. Sometimes I think about what Trump would be going through right now if he'd lost the election, as all the "smart people" thought he would.

Do you really think a President Hillary and all her flying monkeys in the government would've let him go back to being a happy real estate tycoon after all the things he said about her during the campaign?

Hell, no. They would've sought not just revenge, but also to make an example of him so that others would know what happens to you if you dare try to rise up against The Powers That Be in this "utopia" they're trying to build.

Posted by: Bertram Cabot, Jr. at January 17, 2018 09:32 PM (IqV8l)

530 Mostly right (both the lined article and Ace's commentary.) But....

1. It hasn't always been true that the left has had the edge. There were once many areas where conservative behavior gave you an edge, even in education. Of course that's dead now.

2 In parts of the country, we still had the upper hand in my lifetime. I grew up in NY, and in 1971 went to UVa. The difference was stunning. Most Virginians could hear "duty, honor, country" with pride, and not a snicker. There was a phrase used which baffled me, "We do (or do not) 'keep liquor in the house.'" That statement was unthinkable on Long Island, unless you were in AA. People were a bit ashamed NOT to go to church. (I'm of course speaking of actual Virginians, not students. But I knew many of the former.)

3. The "lordship" rhetoric is fun, but very much misleading. That is not the way the old WASP establishment thought, and it's not a good representation of how they functioned. To get a picture of it, at the bitter end of its days, reread Bonfire of the Vanities. Or read Florence King's Wasp Where Is Thy Sting?

4. Shorter version of (3): the beginning of Ace's comment is stronger than the later part. The latter is too much fun abuse, but not much serious discussion. The real point is that STATUS is what matters. It's an American flaw to always conflate that with titles.

5. Believe it or not, David Brooks is among the best to read on this. Besides being exhibit A, he's actually quite candid about it. He is the voice of the status-based world. And when he talks openly of that (and not about policy, of which he understands nothing) he's really good.

6. Don't underestimate the importance of pure geography in the attitudes of many pussycons. They don't want to be pariahs in their daily lives. Most people don't (which is the real point here.) I've long known this, because I'm a sport of nature; I love being derided. But I don't recommend it to others.

And now, the Left's culture is, more or less, the known tradition. It's gnostic and because of that full of delusion and subject to hysteria.

President Trump (whom I have affection for) has flung the Overton window wide open.

545 >>Trump won because he energized white non-college to turnout, which, because they are over-represented in swing states, swung the Electoral College.

I think that's simplistic analysis. Trump ran against Hillary in an open election. Romney lost to an incumbent Obama. It goes against every modern presidential election to not recognize the power of incumbency regardless of who is in office and acknowledge that counts for at a bare minimum 2 or 3 points.

And that also doesn't take into account the black vote that turned out in record numbers in important states for Obama that didn't for Hillary.

The election came down to 3 states and less than 80,000 votes. Trump was very smart to go to focus on the midwestern states that Hillary ignored in favor or her Hollywood campaign and I salute him for that but it's kind of silly to pretend that Hillary wasn't an historically awful candidate and that largely contributed to Trump's against all odds wins. It's that kind of thinking that will lose races because all we need is to run Trumpian candidates and they will win everywhere.

I'm as happy as anyone that Trump won, so is my now 601K and I'd like to keep on winning by not pretending that the world has magically changed and wants more Trump everywhere. We need good candidates that can win in specific races if we are going to keep winning.

551 I was surprised by the outcome. The Republican votes were depressed, obviously, and yet the Democrats allegedly turned out as many voters as they turned out for Hillary. I found that beyond suspicious.

Posted by: Grump928(C) at January 17, 2018 09:18 PM (WbIyz)



518 Here's the numbers:

Moore got 651,972 votes in the Special Election.
He got 262,641 of 481,146 cast in the earlier run off.

So the Republicans got votes that didn't bother to vote in the primary and run off, which is good but, the Democrats turned out 673,896 for Doug Jones when Hillary Clinton only got 729,547 votes in 2016.

Trump polled 1,318,255 in 2016.

I just don't feel those Democratic numbers can be legitimate.

Except for the fact that this has been what has been happening in special and general elections all last year.

Dems are energized, organized, and are turning out like lemmings. The GOP has been beyond subdued. In these types of elections, the GOP has usually has the edge. That this is happening across the board is a clear indicator that the Dems are going to do very, very well this November.

553 From the article Hat linked:



"The decision to sue Mr. Moore and his campaign committee was difficult, but they need to be held responsible for their actions," Corfman said in a written statement to AL.com. "Mr. Moore sexually abused me when I was only 14 years old. Then he and his campaign called me a liar and immoral when I publicly disclosed his misconduct. They ignored my requests to stop attacking me and to acknowledge the truth. Just last week, after the election, they filed a lawsuit in which they once again called me a liar. By this lawsuit, I seek to do what I could not do as a 14-year-old--hold Mr. Moore and those who enable him accountable."


So. A counter-suit. SOP for reaching an out of court settlement.

Look up the marriage laws in your state. I'm sure you'll see that sixteen-year-olds are free to marry anyone, and their parents have zero say in this from a legal standpoint.

With that in mind, I'd like to ask you... Is it better for a sixteen-year-old girl to marry a boy her own age, or a grown man who can legally hold a full-time job, and buy or rent a house, and buy other random things like, say, a car, on credit?

If I had a sixteen-year-old daughter who wanted to get married right away so she could be out on her own (as girls at that age often do; girls do tend to mature faster than boys, after all), I would feel much better about her marrying an older dude who is at least legally able to provide for her.

mentally. It was supposed to be a coronation, not a dogfight.

There are very few that Trump wouldn't have beaten. We all said for years... for YEARS... why doesn't so-and-so fight? Why doesn't he tell the truth about his opponent? Why does he let them tell lies? If that happened so-and-so would win. We said it for years.

Trump, along with being a mass media genius, a communication savant, and an expert on branding, proved us schlubs right. He was a freakin' Terminator. But by all means I hope the Democrats think like you do because they will make all the same mistakes again.

Two things. No, I don't think anyone was going to beat an incumbent Obama. We may hate him but the vast majority of Americans and particularly the minority community don't agree with us. There just are more takers than makers in todays America or at least there were in 2012, hopefully that will change. And if we go up against another charismatic black male in 2020 it will be a problem.

And 2 we need to stop this nonsense about when a candidate we don't like is the nominee we blame some mythical GOPe or R for doing it. It is intellectually dishonest to blame the establishment for controlling who is the nominee when we don't like them and then claim he is our guy when we do.

We are the electorate. We nominated both Bushes, Dole, McCain, Romney and Trump. For better or worse we own them all.

585 Yeah, Hat, but those sixteen-year-olds all said Moore was a perfect gentleman to them, and nothing happened with them beyond kissing.

My conclusion: Moore was, at the time, a successful man with strong personal morals who just happened to be looking for a really young wife. This is absolutely legal.

I agree with you, though, that not everyone thinks about this subject from the same angle that I do. My mom was married at seventeen, to a boy her age, and yeah, they had... problems.

588 583 He lost because #1 as Grump said, the numbers don't add up" - we always must beat the fraud percentage and #2 he was a clumsy clutz.

The reason he came off as a clumsy clutz is that all with an R proximal to their name refused assistance.
Not only did they deny assistance they denigrated him to the public. Shame on them for that.

Now we don't have a clutz we have a commie.

589 Romney had a libido for what, charitably speaking, can be called equivocation.

That, combined with his writing off of 47% of the population, a large chunk of which was senior citizens. IIRC, he garnered 56% of that vote. That's not that high.

Romney, especially following his fraud/con presser then his yeah, I'l be your Sec of State, is much worse than Trump, IME.

Say that with a grain of salt.
The Republican Machine is alive, well, and a force to be reckoned with. George P. Bush is a candidate in Texas and he will win.

I went to precinct meetings just like the books and was shut down. Ron Paul (I know) had a primer on how to take control at the grass roots level. It is the most cogent way in print But there must be numbers of people willing to take the time and most Republican types are too busy because they have jobs, families, and other responsibilities.

597 >>The county and state RINO establishment must be broken in order for conservative candidates to make it past the primaries.

Trump may be governing as a conservative now, he was never in his life a conservative. This is a guy who criticized Romney after 2012 loudly and repeatedly for being too "mean" about illegals. Trump spent his life as a NY liberal before the 2016 race.

I keep saying this but we can't keep pretending 2016 was some sort of model for how things will play out in the future. Trump wanted no part of Roy Moore and only campaigned for him at the last minute in Florida so let's not pretend he has huge coattails or is some harbinger of a conservative renaissance.

Each race stands on it's own and always will.

Eh, I'm not that smart. If I had to guess I think she would have left him pretty much alone as long as he didn't cause too much trouble.

There is a mountain of stuff about to be exposed about her corruption and the balls she was juggling to keep it all going. I think she would have been far too preoccupied with trying to keep her game going and trying to deal with the shit that she and Obama left behind with North Korea and ISIS and Russia, etc. to have much time to deal with Trump as long as he couldn't expose her.

I really think people are going to be shocked when they see what's coming from all the corruption they left behind. Trying to keep that covered up and manage the numerous international issues she helped cause would have been a full time job.

600 Obama:

Why can't that work come home? Obama asked.

Jobs' reply was unambiguous. "Those jobs aren't coming back," he said, according to another dinner guest.

The president's question touched upon a central conviction at Apple. It isn't just that workers are cheaper abroad. Rather, Apple's executives believe the vast scale of overseas factories as well as the flexibility, diligence and industrial skills of foreign workers have so outpaced their U.S. counterparts that "Made in the USA" is no longer a viable option for most Apple products.

Trump:

The headline from Apple is that it will "contribute" $350 billion to the U.S. economy over the next five years, although it's unclear exactly how the company came to that number.

But the company promised to create 20,000 new jobs and a new campus thanks, in part, to the prospect of tax reform.

It anticipates a $38 billion tax bill for repatriated cash, as a result of the new tax bill. This implies it will bring back virtually all of its $250 billion in overseas cash.

Apple also said it would spend over $30 billion in capital expenditures over the next five years. About $10 billion in capital expenditures will be investments in U.S. data centers, the company said.

602 I don't think North Korea, ISIS and Russia would've really preoccupied Hillary if she'd won, Jack. She'd pay the Danegeld, and turn a blind eye as needed in foreign arenas to delay the threat from those factions, while turning the full force of the federal government on those domestic opponents who'd displeased her, such as Donald Trump.

I honestly think he'd have been imprisoned by now, with all his assets and the assets of his children seized, if Hillary had won. "Oh, I'll be in jail? No, you're the one who's going to be in jail."

What I've realized is that it doesn't matter if they are wrong.

Seemingly 100% of Democrats and LIV's believe the Bush tax cuts cost the country trillions of dollars and led to the financial crisis in '08.

I don't know if you can find anyone in the media actually SAYING that exactly, but that's the impression they create and foster, and no one ever goes back to say, "well, we said the world would end with the Bush tax cuts, let's see what federal tax receipts looked like in the decade following..."

and no, Mexico is not going to pay for it. I like Trump, but I gotta admit that on that one he has been pure snake oil salesman. People wanted to hear it, so he told them he could do it, certainly figuring that when it doesn't happen he can always pin the blame elsewhere.

Jane - we get that a lot too. Rev got called to go to Milwaukee because a lady who hasn't come to church in about ten years was having heart surgery and wanted "her pastor." He's only been here 6 years so he never met her before. I don't think she's going to make it, and the family (also unknown to us) would like everything here.

It was a CIA base running arms, money, and lord knows what else. I'm assuming it's safe to say a few American lives were sacrificed to keep those ratlines open and operational and out of the public eye.

We practically put out entire meals for people, but my committee of 12-20 has dwindled to me and two or three others. It's physically exhausting.


We did one for a woman who was the widow of a member who had been dead for so many years no one remembered who he was. She was an atheist from the NE who never darkened the doors of the church. Her out-of-state grown children insisted on a service in the church, followed by a reception. Literally no one knew who the woman was, other than her obit read she was "a proud member of the CT Democratic party. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Planned Parenthood."

We gritted out teeth and did a nice reception, her spawn poked their heads in and said, "Nice!" and left never to return to this state again.

In the case of the Tax cut, the results are good for the people and for Trump so intentions must be used. And Trump's intention are evil...in some way... He certainly did not MEAN for the average worker to benefit. It was an unintended consequence, an accident, so he gets no credit for it.

Not that what she had wasn't true, but that it was sold as THE BIG ONE and ended up showing he paid a far higher rate than the Dem candidates who clamored for months about 'fair share' BS. That was really good.

Because anything greater than $1 is more than "crumbs" of our own money and most people saw a hell of a lot more than $1, many saw hundreds if not thousands. Fuck the "elite betters"!

319 The out of touch elites being wrong does not surprise or bother me. They're wrong almost all the time. What I find maddening is that they know so little about the real world. They don't get that *most* Americans do not live as they do and we really are happy to get an extra $500 or $1000.

330 Guess what? Stopping illegal immigration also helps increase worker wages. Also it helps the chronically unemployed.

Workers love illegals for a variety of reasons. "They do the work Americans don't want to do." is what people say, but they leave out "at the wage the employer wants to offer" - offer more money and plenty of people would love to do the job. AND, because they are illegal, none of our pesky workplace protection laws apply. Also no insurance, no SS tax, no Medicare, or workman's comp. They actually can afford to pay the illegals more, because they are paying the government less.

331 The key issue is "consumer confidence." These broadcasts of "experts" stating with absolute conviction that the tax cuts will not have any solid effect on the economy are doing so with the intent of countering consumer confidence. They are attempting to influence that all important abstract.

In my opinion, that makes their false comments all that more egregious. But, as the retail market figures from the holidays prove...they are much too ineffective and much too late.

They've gone full retard...never go full retard.

She got way too full of herself and tried taking on DJT on behalf of Rupert and his dumbfuck brats and then helped fuck over Ailes for them. For some unfathomable reason she then believed she was Superbitch and could take on anybody and departed for the dunces of 30 Rock whose core audience of retards have hated her as being the figurehead of Faux News and won't budge from that. Add in some absolutely horrible makeovers and you have her reduced to doing grind dances with Hoda to try and gain favor.

547 D'oh Boy actually ate dog in S. Korea. Didn't mean to, and was horrified when he found out. A S. Korean Marine took several U. S. Marines to a "hamburger" place in Seoul, and told them they made the best burgers.

Son said the burger was decent, and then they heard this zapping noise and yelping in the back.

Freaked him out and pissed him off.

Then, on the way to Afghanistan, a blizzard grounded their flight in Awfuckitstan or somewhere. The Marines were ordered to stay in the freezing hangar, and the locals served them mystery meat sammiches that turned out to be horse.

And of course, he rides and loves horses. So doubly screwed.

12-Year-Old Goth Girl "Sassy Jim" Acosta Has Another Emotional Outburst

Two of them, actually.

In both cases, he claimed This Is Not America Any Longer.

In one instance, White House aides apparently talked over him for ten seconds to deny him a grandstanding moment of shouting an impertinent question to the president in a joint appearance with a foreign leader for which it had already been stated that Trump would not be taking questions.

Sassy Jim Acosta wrote a meangirl entry in his daily diary he calls Twitter:



Video of this outrage under the fold.

That was Sassy Jim's second cry-up yesterday.

His first was about, of course, immigration.

Goth Girls like poetry (like the Emily Lazarus poem, for example).




As many have asked: Did CNN do any stories about the Human Face of Deportation about Obama? Remember, the leftist media attempted to shield Obama from criticism over his poor record of border security by repeatedly echoing the administration propaganda line that Obama had deported more people than any president in history. Obama's pro-illegal allies even helpfully named him the "Deporter in Chief," so he could take that to market and pose as a border hawk.

If that was true, and the media sure acted as if it was, why were there no stories about all the wonderful illegal aliens being deported under Obama?

The answers are either 1, because the media knew that claim was a propagandistic lie and/or 2, because the media doesn't report negatively about partisan progressive politicians, especially not about Prince Gaylord Urkel.

57 For the thousandth time...

When adults break the law and punished for it, if they have kids those kids will suffer because of the actions of their parents.

That does not mean that we should not enforce laws. This does not mean that the children are themselves being punished for anything. Any pain suffered by the family is unfortunate, but blame lies squarely on the shoulders of the parent. And if the parent was setting such a shitty example, those kids might be better off away from his influence in the long run.

No? Why not.

109 Obama: ........................

Why can't that work come home? Obama asked.

Jobs' reply was unambiguous. "Those jobs aren't coming back," he said, according to another dinner guest.

The
president's question touched upon a central conviction at Apple. It
isn't just that workers are cheaper abroad. Rather, Apple's executives
believe the vast scale of overseas factories as well as the flexibility,
diligence and industrial skills of foreign workers have so outpaced
their U.S. counterparts that "Made in the USA" is no longer a viable
option for most Apple products.

Trump: ........................

The headline from Apple is that it will "contribute" $350 billion to the U.S. economy over the next five years, although it's unclear exactly how the company came to that number.

But the company promised to create 20,000 new jobs and a new campus thanks, in part, to the prospect of tax reform.

It anticipates a $38 billion tax bill for repatriated cash, as a result of the new tax bill. This implies it will bring back virtually all of its $250 billion in overseas cash.

Apple also said it would spend over $30 billion in capital expenditures over the next five years. About $10 billion in capital expenditures will be investments in U.S. data centers, the company said.

168 "Wife of deported dad, who has lived in US for last 30 years, tells me how she tried to explain it to her kids"

I've looked at that story, and mysteriously get the sense that there is stuff that The Media Is Not Telling Us.

We are assured that the guy hasn't even gotten a speeding ticket in the last thirty years, yet mysteriously got a removal order in 2009, which he had put off until now through various appeals.

So, why did the guy get a deportation order in 2009? Judging from cases in my neck of the woods, I suspect that he had been deported earlier, illegally returned to the United States, and got a removal order because of the prior deportation order. It's also unclear how he was allowed to appeal the removal order for eight years.

I don't believe the "he was living quietly in the United States, pure as the driven snow, for twenty years, and then mysteriously got a removal order for no reason" story.

But ICE needs to really up their PR efforts - they needed to have a spokesperson available to explain 1) why the guy got a deportation order in 2009; 2) why is he being deported now; and 3) what criminal record he has in the United States, if any. He doesn't have a privacy right that would keep the US government from disclosing his criminal record and immigration violations.

Even if the media won't cover it, conservative blogs and media would.

ICE is getting killed, PR-wise, allowing these "Modern-Day Saint Cruelly Being Deported" stories, without rebutting them.

Yes, that change in reporting went in to effect in '09 or '10 i believe. They never counted the "turned back at border" people before because deportation usually means "went to court and was ordered to leave" and there's a case file and legal proceedings and all of that.

And of course, "turned back at the border" is always going to be a very unscientific number.

"We dissuaded a bunch of people about to cross the border by rolling up on them in our truck. As soon as they saw us, they sprinted back across the border."
"How many people were there?"
"ehhh... 15 or 20 probably."

Boom, 20 more people "deported."

Eventually everyone is going to see what pathetic losers these media whiners are.

Some months back ICE rounded up a dozens of Iraqi immigrants with old criminal convictions who have since then managed to keep themselves out of trouble. Not saying either the Iraqis or the guy from Mexico should get a free pass. It just seems weird that the priority for ICE in this area seems to be law-abiding illegals as opposed to gang-bangers, serial criminals, etc. It's like ICE is trying to make the case "See!!!
