Male Writer for MeAgain Kelly Fired After Reporting "Toxic and Demeaning" Workplace Culture in Which Female Producers Bullied Lower-Ranking Employees

Remember, NBC ordered personnel to report -- to snitch on -- anyone behaving badly in the workplace. NBC promised there would be no negative consequences for so reporting bad behavior (and, in fact, they promised there could be negative consequences for failing to snitch).

A dude snitched on MeAgain's Valkyries.

And... he's fired.

Because, of course he is.

Now of course, it's possible this guy was on his way out anyway and maybe tried to report "toxic and demeaning" bullying to make himself unfireable... we'll see what MeAgain says about it -- if anyone in the media even dares to ask her about it.

I mean, men can't be discriminated against or bullied. Everyone knows that.

Thanks to ArthurK./@comradearthur.

51 There's actually a term for this in communism: "Let a Hundred Flowers Bloom."

Mao, after decades of ruthless ideological oppression, suddenly did an about-face and encourage Chinese people of every class to come up with their own ideas how things could be improved in communist China. "A hundred flowers" blooming was a metaphor for all sorts of great new ideas being allowed to flourish.

So, a lot of people took the government order seriously and came up with ways to imprive Maoist society.

All their names were duly noted down.

Then they were all tortured and executed.

Any further questions?

MeAgain grabbed him by the dick!

Then threw over next to the ficus in her office and made him stand there while she frigged herself on the ficus.

There was something in the Daily Mail a couple days ago about MeAgain not going to the Olympics, which was apparently some great shunning, since just about all of them go, down to the mailroom boys in the basement.

If you want to do that, the way to do it is be fully dressed with coat and shoes on, watch the liftoff online, then run outside and look for it.

I've actually seen a few launches that way from Pennsylvania, when the rocket is flying on a northeasterly trajectory.

111 Tester, McCaskill, Heitkamp, Manchin, Donnelly - highly vulnerable, I think. Nelson, Stabenow - less, but still vulnerable.


Swap out non-idiots for McCain and Flake and Corker. Hopefully, Cochran (nature, not an election).


Still not quite there, even running the board. But plenty for easy confirmation of actual judges and justices (come on, Health Watch of Hope).


And even in the unlikely, blessed event of a real blow-out, where the GOP reaches 60 in the Senate, that probably won't hold. A few useless GOP snakes likely ready to go "independent"/caucus with Dems.

Poor Miss Fields, so abused, appearing on Megyn's show to whine, appearing with breasts on full display in nightgown like attire.

Sorry to say this, but most women are too emotional to run things like "companies" or the "government." Work in hospital? Comfort the dying? Raise children? Most definitely. Those are important things.

But destroy men to elevate women?

173 Recall that we're just talking about a brief memo that, presumably, summarizes the "highlights" of one aspect of the Mega-Scandal Swarm likely to engulf the Dems and some of our favorite people.


If there is criminal activity involved (and some highly offensive, outrageous abuses don't actually involve criminal activity when it comes to these matters), presumably that will be pursued. This memo is just the start.


Gorka said he was told this is just the tip of the iceberg. Unclear if he was referring to *this* mega-scandal, or some of the others.


There is over-lap in some of these scandals, both substantively and in terms of personalities, but how about this for a rough taxonomy:


* FISA abuse related to the 2016 campaign/Trump team
* Obstruction of justice/etc scandal regarding the massive, systematic violations of the Espionage and Federal Records Acts by the Clinton State Dept. team
* Whichever statutes apply to the massive, systematic de facto bribery and influence peddling scandal, pay-for-play, of the Clinton State Dept. team, involving the Clinton Foundation


Completely left aside here are several other mega-scandals, notably Fast and Furious, and the IRS political targeting abuses. Disastrously, those apparently will just be left unpunished (weaponizing one of the most powerful domestic agencies, public employees taking the 5th before Congress - these are milestones/precedents I am confident we will live to see come back and cause a lot of damage to the country).

not sure anyone is worth $5000 an hour. Were I into the whole whoring thing I would have to evaluate the cost benefit ratio. Would having one incredible $5000 hour whoring be better than 10 hours of really good whoring for $500 an hour?

Eventually you would get into the whole foreiggn and domestic thing. Your costs and legal risks are going to be much higher here than if you went somewhere else. You have to factor in travel and disease when you go foreign.

So, dunno.

You have to wonder offhand if there is something obvious that would be included in the $5000 an hour deal that is not standard.

New NBC Poll: Democrat Advantage on Generic Congressional Ballot Falls from +11 to +6



Yesterday I posted about an NPR/Marist poll showing the Democrat advantage falling from +13 to +6, so these polls mutually confirm each other.

There's also this:



Here's the article, headlined: CNN poll: DACA not worth a shutdown, except to Democrats.

As Democrats push a Shutdown, the public now retracts its supposed support for DACA and says "keep the government open, and who cares about DACA."

Given that the public opinion stars are aligning to tell Republicans they're in a much stronger position than the (typically retarded) conventional wisdom had had it a week ago, I expect this is the perfect time for Republicans to #SurrenderTheirWives.

Instead, you're getting "ooooh, mean Dems, they're threatening the CHIP benefits of 9 million kids, to help 900K illegal kids".

If you can find a way to get outsider candidates that can successfully primary a sitting RINO and then win the general I'm open to suggestions. And by "way" I also mean money.

The GOP-e is not going to just roll over and die. They will fight like Democrats if their power is threatened by outsiders, as we have seen time and again.

That said, I think maybe the collapse of the Collusion investigation and the Winning has allowed the GOP to sort of actually grow a pair and join the bandwagon.

We shall see.

163 Tom Cotton is KICKING Ass and taking names. In this, Lindsey Graham:


"All I can siay is we're not going to end family immigration for DACA" said Graham. "The Tom Cotton approach has no viability here. You know, he's bcome sort of the Steve King of the Senate. . .:


Cotton responded later on Friday:
The difference between Steve King and Lindsey Graham is that Steve King can actually win an election in Iowa. Look, we had an election in 2016. Immigration was a major issue there and the American people and especially Republican primary voters made it clear that they wanted Donald Trump's vision of immigration policy, not Lindsey Graham's. He didn't make it to the starting line and he didn't even make it off the kiddie table in the debates."

173 This whole situation is a dream (heh) come true.


A well managed shut-down (with a shot at doing some RIFs as a consequence, and no EO to pay govt. employees during the furlough), with the Dems dying on the hill of DACA, while the administration and GOP hammer the border security/immigration reform themes.


And FFS, any "DACA" must be a "skinny" version - with extremely tight vetting (that alone will reduce the numbers, materially) to heightened standards, and zero chain migration.


Border barrier and personnel, end to chain migration, end of lottery, mandating e-Verify, etc. are not "swapping" goods for DACA - they are urgently needed practical measures to *neutralize* the known, horrific effects of any amnesty. And that's exactly how these things should be discussed.


But that's not going to happen. The least-worst GOP simply cannot discuss these issues in intelligent terms, and half of them favor disastrously stupid things like DACA (and Trump seriously degraded his own leverage with his own DACA burblings).

If there is a shutdown and Donny Two Scoops plays the FNM with his usual skill and gets word to people that the DEMS refused the deal to fund CHiP, and had some provision for DACA with the border security and no more chain migration, well the FNM is going to have a hard time dragging many Dems congress candidates to victory, in spite of how little help the beltway repukes will give in making the case that the Dems and too much government are bad for the country.

252 Ben Had, Mitch sent out a twitter whatever graphically linking the CHIP non-issue with DACA. Probably just a reflection of the Beltway GOP's idiotic obsession with amnesty, masquerading as unbelievably dumb politics. Didn't hear any audio from him today.


Last week some GOP congresscritter (can't remember who) pointed out the obvious, for the benefit of the WH: this may well be the *last* chance Trump has to get *any* immigration gainzzz of note in his first term. Absent a GOP blowout in the Senate, reaching 60+ (Graham and a few others are as stupid on immigration as a Gutierrez or a Durbin), this seems like an obvious, mundane observation.


Demand everything in exchange for a skinny DACA. Or count on selling promises of real immigration fixes a 2nd time, for 2020 - with few results to show for the first term.

Each of these sounds good. Depends on your mood.

Check one of the restaurant sites, like Tripadvisor and read the opinions. Many times they give advice on the dishes. Look for patterns of likes and dislikes. They usually show pictures of the dishes there too.

repeal the 22nd

Posted by: x at January 19, 2018 06:28 PM (nFwvY)

413 Funny story about Coke and Pepsi. We were contracted to build an addition for a client who was a big wig for Coca Cola corporation. The first day on the job, a couple of the Carpenters brought Pepsi products to work for break and lunch.

The client came out and about had a stroke when he saw my guys drinking their Pepsi's for lunch. For the remainder of the job, we had a cooler full of Coke products every day.

If there's anything liberals are good at, it's destruction.

And historical and legal illiteracy, but mostly destruction.
Posted by: Manitowoc Minute at January 19, 2018 06:15 PM (7UW64)








My standard rant on commie motivations being nothing but destruction (and shooting kneeling Kulaks in the back of the neck) is more relevant than ever, which is why I've been beating it on the HQ like it owes me money.

Ran that by my Aunt and Uncle while visiting family for Christmas over a year ago. Both are fairly right-wing, we have a lot of fun discussing issues together. Uncle totally agreed with with the rant at the time, Aunt, not so much. In fact, she flat out said "I don't believe that's true at all".

This year, after watching the Donks try their little coup de etat, she came right out and said that I was right the first time, the last year had convinced her to change her mind.

The thing is, she's a smart lady, but she doesn't live and breathe politics to the same degree that I do. She has a real life. But the blatant destruction being turned up to eleven by the Donks this year FORCED her to notice what they were doing. I don't think this is an isolated occurrence either.

441 Interesting at American Thinker:
---
In the early 2000s, a slew of studies came out showing that psychiatrists were the original architects of Nazi genocide through their early philosophical and scientific support of child euthanasia and other moral abominations. Somewhat later, psychiatrists played a key role in legitimizing Nazi horrors by furnishing medical rationales. Far from being "passive enablers," as Lee and Glass trendily put it in a reference to the unclean hands of these psychiatrists, they sadistically facilitated and augmented Nazi crimes.

489 There is an easy DACA deal on the table for the Dems - give Trump $20 billion for the wall, limit DACA to 700,000 people, and don't allow chain migration for the DACA kids. That 1) helps the DACA kids 2) helps stop more DACA kids from happening, and 3) Punishes the adults who dumped off the kids at the border. Easy peasey.

Problem is, whatever deal they do that doesn't completely fuck Trump is unacceptable. Giving him $1 for the wall is out of bounds. Literally - just ask them. They can't fund anything having to do with the wall, because for no other reason than Trump wants it.

To the outside observer they look deranged.

568 Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

Our family sat together this morning with the Medical Examiner Coroner's office and we were informed of their final analysis that Tom Petty passed away due to an accidental drug overdose as a result of taking a variety of medications.

Unfortunately Tom's body suffered from many serious ailments including emphysema, knee problems and most significantly a fractured hip.

Despite this painful injury he insisted on keeping his commitment to his fans and he toured for 53 dates with a fractured hip and, as he did, it worsened to a more serious injury.

On the day he died he was informed his hip had graduated to a full on break and it is our feeling that the pain was simply unbearable and was the cause for his over use of medication.

We knew before the report was shared with us that he was prescribed various pain medications for a multitude of issues including Fentanyl patches and we feel confident that this was, as the coroner found, an unfortunate accident.

As a family we recognize this report may spark a further discussion on the opioid crisis and we feel that it is a healthy and necessary discussion and we hope in some way this report can save lives. Many people who overdose begin with a legitimate injury or simply do not understand the potency and deadly nature of these medications.

On a positive note we now know for certain he went painlessly and beautifully exhausted after doing what he loved the most, for one last time, performing live with his unmatchable rock band for his loyal fans on the biggest tour of his 40 plus year career. He was extremely proud of that achievement in the days before he passed.

We continue to mourn with you and marvel at Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' incredible positive impact on music and the world. And we thank you all for your love and support over the last months.

Thank you also for respecting the memory of a man who was truly great during his time on this planet both publicly and privately.

We would be grateful if you could respect the privacy of the entire Heartbreaker family during this difficult time.

Dana Petty and Adria Petty

Notice I didn't say anything about Republicans leaking it, just made the observation that the confidence level is at 95+ that there are multiple copies of that memo out there.

The only reason it has not been leaked is it will be devastating to the dems and their narrative. that's why there are multiple different attacks on Trump tonight.

589 I am very unhappy with a sleazebag president banging women while he's married to someone else, that's disgusting, awful, wrong, and demonstrates a complete lack of character that befits someone in leadership. It shows a lack of self control, honesty, loyalty, and decency.

But unlike Bill Clinton who was still groping, raping, and philandering even as he campaigned for president and kept doing it while in office, President Trump seems to have totally changed and turned his life around. If they can find something from, say, last year, that will matter to me.

But over a decade ago? And no hint of anything since? The guy has been a straight arrow for years now, that's what counts to me.

I'm actually preferring them drawing this out. Because the longer the Dems impede this, the longer they'll look guilty.

However, the down side is that the longer they drag this out, the more time the spin doctors on the left have to construct a narrative, and strategically leak each charge with its ready-made excuse.

And we've seen in the past, the excuse doesn't even have to be THAT good. The press will push it like it's the most natural thing in the world for whatever to happen.

There are multiple attacks on Trump every night.

Frankly I won't be surprised one bit at what is in the memo because I've saying that this scandal goes way beyond FISA spying on Trump, it has been going on for years and I know that there are many people in DC who have also known this for months most notably Devin Nunes.

People out here in the wasteland will be surprised at what's in the memo but I'd be willing to bet almost nobody in DC will be.

To be honest, if you want to do that level of change at the federal level, you have to start at the state level.

Taking out squishy Republicans in Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, and in every other deep red state. Trying to replace squishy Democrats with squishy Republicans in purple states.

In a decade of forcing that level of change, then you can start moving those people up into Federal House seats as well as more important state level seats. 5-10 years after that, then you start replacing governors and US Senators.

Neophytes almost always lose. If you want to build a stronger, more conservative Republican Party, you have to do it from the ground up and have a lot of patience.

It's possible it hasn't been leaked yet because it's Friday - a bad day for big news to break (which is why Obama liked doing unpopular/controversial crap on Fridays -that helped the MSM bury whatever asshattery it was.) Better that the shit hit the fan on Monday.

That would be embarrassing--but I'm not a Republican because I don't put even that past Republicans (and I don't know why--I suspect some things, but I don't know them.)

Aside from that I expected something shady to surface probably with business matters. Nothing did.

That's what I suspect. But still a thorough analysis requires asking what's the worst case. And how does that match to what else is going on. So, we're examining the Stormy scenario, and not really seeing much IF true that would warrant removing support from Trump (It's not even CLOSE)

I want a collapse of the Dems. Then if the Dems go down, and when the Dems fall and fewer people are listening to them, it will be easier to notice how partisan the mainstream of the media has been. And then, hopefully, that falls.

Then it removes the white noise machine which tried to drown out the political choices of one side of America.

What about your GAINZZZZ, brah?

I saw the orthopedic surgeon who did my shoulder replacement a week ago Thursday; he was happy with what he saw on the X-Ray, but perhaps not so much on my range-of-motion progress because he wrote orders to my therapists instructing them to "get aggressive" with their therapy. So I know they went home and starting poring through books they have in their libraries such as 'Insane Tortures of the Nazis' and 'Aztec Cult Initiation Pain Rituals' as well as 'Extreme Yoga' by Guru Mahirajah Manalishi Mahesh Mariachi (also known as 'The Amazing Rubber Man') looking for ideas.

So, with its own strength, I can raise my right arm straight out in front of me pretty much horizontal, but no further. Call that 0 degrees as a baseline. With the pulley contraption, I can hoist it up to about 35-45 degrees so that it looks like I'm doing a half-assed Nazi salute. So I keep my arm raised about 5-10 seconds, and then lower it. I can do 5-6 reps and then it hurts too bad to continue. I'm doing this exercise 4-6 times per day.

It stops hurting immediately after I stop lifting it, so I'm OK.

Here's another thing I can't do: With your arms at your sides, raise your forearm to a horizontal position while keeping your elbow at your side. Got that? OK, now swing your arm out away from you while your elbow remains stationary. What is enablng you to do that is called "external rotation" and I have virtually none in my right arm. So the range-of-motion exercise for this is me holding a cane and gently push my arm out, only I can't do it very extensively because it immediately starts to hurt like a mother Fokker (yes, those German WWI airplanes were not comfortable to fly) and I can get maybe 5 degrees of rotation. I'm told this will be the most difficult motion to restore, and the surgeon says I may never get some of it back.

But I am making progress and I can now reach for some things and do some things with my right arm that I couldn't a couple of weeks ago. I'm a little over 3 months post-injury, and they tell me recovery will take about a year, so I have a ways to go. One other thing, though: When I watch old westerns or cop shows and somebody gets shot in the shoulder and then he's perfectly functional after the next commercial break, I just laugh and laugh.

I now believe that if I were to get shot, the last part of my body I would want to get shot would be my shoulder.

So those are my GAINZZZZ... What about yours, brah?

Update: For those of you who don't know, here is my account of what I did to lose range-of-motion in my right shoulder/arm.

Posted by: johnnyhobbes at January 19, 2018 04:01 PM (xpUjK)

35 I wrenched the tendons in my left arm so bad I wore a sling on it for several months. After a while they healed to the point I could take it off, but it was really painful to move that thing in any sort of range of motion. I kept doing exercises with it, rotating, lifting, spinning, etc until now its probably 90% normal. No idea what the real damage was, but i didn't have $12,000 to pay to get it worked on or looked at.

went through the PT. Very painful. You have to do it though. I have 100% range of motion back now. Like it never happened. Took a full year although I got most of it back in the first 5 months. The last 20% comes eventually but it is slower.

Honestly the PT people are necessary because you can't force yourself to do it as far as they will and you need to get through that first 6 or 8 weeks with them to be able to do the rest on your own.

How does that make ANY sense? They aren't even trying anymore are they?

I mean, what did the Russians do the IG investigation and write the memo too?

118 OM, my rule for rehab (now) is
1) go on the most frequent schedule you can get them to approve,
2) don't miss any sessions,
3) keep going until finally one of the senior physical therapists says "You don't need to keep coming here, there's nothing more we can do for you!" and essentially throws you out, and
4) keep doing the basic exercises several times a week at home for another three to six months.

144 hey, I was gonna do a GAINZZZ thread!

Well I don't have it as bad as you, but I'm also working on restoring shoulder mobility.

I had to have both shoulders reconstructed surgically when I was young, probably because I was doing bench presses with elbows flared out, "bouncing" on my tendons until they just got so loose they didn't hold my shoulders in any more.

Don't do that, kids!


anyway, I ditched physical therapy for them and never got full range of motion back. Now I'm trying to exercise the little muscles in the shoulder and rotator cuff and stuff.

163 I broke my shoulder like yours, OM, but I had temporary pins instead, apparently the surgeon figured I would heal if bolted together.

Once they got the pins out, my goal was to touch the top of the door frame, and that took time. After that it was to touch the 8' ceiling, and after that to touch my fingers behind my back.

I got the last pins out about August so I could do my stretches in the back yard where the cussing wouldn't worry the cats.

Once I was able to do that and throw apples over-hand, I dug out my shepherds' sling and would go down to the park and throw rocks at the river.

I am proud to say I almost never missed.

Glad you are making it back. It is a long path.

On the good side, to follow up on Gainzzz, I am getting back into swimming and I can do the crawl and back strokes just fine.
I am so out of shape that I can only do four laps, but since I started out the first of January doing 3 and feeling like I was going to die at the end of each one, I am really improving.

My weight has been holding between 193 pounds and 190 pounds, down 25 pounds since last mid-June.

I visit the gym two or three times a week and I have extended my time on the treadmill out to 40 minutes at 4.3 miles per hour. Krebs It is time to add weight work and stretching exercises to the regimen. I'll likely do that in early February.

178 Oh OregonMuse, please be patient and stop forcing yourself to do exercises that hurt. Pain means stop, so listen. Just be thankful that your pain stops when you stop pushing. Give your body time to heal - you just got hurt in October - and realize you may not recover your full range of motion. Just ask yourself, can I live without it? It could be much worse. Remember how you felt a couple months ago?

I badly broke both bones in my right ankle several years ago, and prayed to just be able to walk again. That seemed like an unattainable goal for awhile, and the PT was rough. My ankle hurt most of every day for months, then part of the time, then I finally got to the point when I actually wouldn't think about it daily. Try Real Time Pain Relief Maxx formula lotion to rub on whatever hurts (within reason!) and see if that helps. I was using it several times a day for awhile, then several times a week, and now just as needed. Anyway, go easy on the exercises, try to be patient, and just be thankful that you are doing much better than you were. Blessings!

182 Hang in there Oregon Muse.

I had two rotator cuff surgeries last year, one in October (left shoulder) and one just before Christmas (right shoulder) due to high deductible insurance, and wanted to get both done while deductible was achieved.

No fun at all. Just now getting back to normal, strength still underperforming, but pretty much full ROM without pain.

Exactly right about getting shot in the shoulder - but, movies ain't real life. If they were, Trump would have kicked the crap out of half the dems and RINOs in congress by now.

My advice is unfriendly. You have to work through the motherfucking pain. Hard, hard, physical therapy. Regular multiple-times/day stretching. I did PT until I was crying. You're forcing tendons to reattach & stretch ... inches. If you take it easy, it will never never improve.

But there's this. I had VERY limited ROM b/f my fall - couldn't raise arm past horizontal. Now I can do jumping jacks.

196 Put your arm behind your back with the lower part horizontal. Use a towel behind your back and grasp it with your hand. Use the other hand to slowly raise your hand. Hold to the count of five. Do this ten times three times a day. Pull the towel to the point of resistance and hold each time. Hurts like hell but in a few months you will be able to wash your back in the shower and take your wallet out of your back pocket

Putin's Master Plan to Install a Pawn In the White House Who Would Greatly Amp Up Energy Production and Thereby Decimate the Russian Oil-Based Economy Is Nearly Compete

In 2018, the US is expected to overtake both Russia and Saudi Arabia to become the world's greatest oil producer.

Some NeverTrumpers immediately objected to this development, noting that as the US becomes energy-independent it gives them less pretext to start and lose wars in the Middle East.

Oh, and also Russia Something Kompromat.

18 Funny thing about this. The Russian oil boom is what lead directly to the American fracking boom.

When the Soviet Union fell Russia ask US oil companies yo help them develop better cold weather drilling techniques.

What we learned in Russia brought on the technology that became the start of the American oil boom.

35 It's a good think we're drilling the shit out of oil -- just this morning, I was talking to the person who purchases the electric power for our small town, and she says that she thinks electric rates are about to go way, way up.

Partly because natural gas is going up, because it's been very low for so long, and partly because of demand.

But mostly because the economy has been in the shitter for about 8 years or so. And so now the Obama ankle weights have been removed, so factories will once again be using shit-tons of electricity to power machinery, demand goes up, price goes up.

We need more oil, more natty gas, more coal, more nuclear. Quickly.

what is chicom for take it? what is chinese slang for venezuelans? are they tossed in with everyone as round eyes or is there something else?

Cotton: Oh really?

...Later on Friday, Cotton responded to the South Carolina Senator, telling a group of reporters on Capitol Hill that because Graham failed to win the Republican presidential primary in 2016, he is unqualified to lead the charge on immigration issues nows.

"The difference between Steve King and Lindsey Graham is that Steve King can actually win an election in Iowa," Cotton said. "Look, we had an election in 2016. Immigration was a major issue there and the American people and especially Republican primary voters made it clear that they wanted Donald Trump's vision of immigration policy, not Lindsey Graham's. He didn't make it to the starting line and he didn't even make off the kiddie table in the debates."

180 You don't burn coal in an open fireplace. If there is an insert, then CO is not an issue. Coal furnaces are not an open coal fire in the basement. Unless there is a crack in it, the CO goes out the chimney.

You don't burn coal the same as wood, though. I use some in my woodstove. It is an airtight woodstove. You can add half a scoop of small lumps and slack to a wood fire to make sure it will stay warm and re-buildable in the morning. To actually use coal as the main fuel, you need, at least, a stanchion so that the coal is held up off the firebox floor, and you run with the intake vents much wider-open.

To idle a wood fire and bake the gases out of the logs, you run up the heat and then shut it down to a fast smolder. Coal does not smolder well; you have to burn it.

When people used near-anthracite quality coal in home furnaces, smoke soot and stink were minor. In hard times, they would down-grade. Dad can remember going across the high suspension bridge and seeing a low-hanging pall of smoke across the whole city on a brisk winter morning, as every ignorant jerk tried to build up his furnace fire with cardboard and lignite after not banking them right overnight. There is a little knowledge and skill involved, which is why we were forced to abandon the system.

An old friend of my family was an executive with ConEd. He kept pushing coal gasificiation even though he new it would probably never fly.

Why? Because he said that we could power America for 1,000 years on a cubic mile of coal from one mine in Wyoming.

Nope!

We were buying Russian Weapons Grade Uranium, and diluting it to 3-4% U-235 for commercial reactor fuel.

Unfortunately, we never were able to do the same with Russian Plutonium. Now we missed our window of opportunity to do so.

That would have been the best Nuclear Armaments Reduction Plan ever!!!

192 When people used near-anthracite quality coal in home furnaces, smoke soot and stink were minor. In hard times, they would down-grade

East Germany had brown coal. I think it's lignite vs. antrhacite, I don't really know things.

So I'm not really saying it's their fault, you work with what you have, but they burned brown coal and it ruined everything. There was a purple haze, and not in the fun Jimi Hendrix way, the smog was purple. And the sulphur content of the coal ate away all the metal in the machines that ran on coal.

194 Cashill's saying Steele didn't write the dossier--or at least major portions of it.

Even though I never fully bought in to Cashill's analysis that Bill Ayers wrote Dreams from My Father, he's simply doing textual analysis which he seems to be somewhat skilled at. Don't know that I buy all of it.

But it asks some interesting questions, like why pass it off as his dossier? Is it the MI6 connection, which allowed a greater possibility of FISA acceptance? Or is it the problem with some campaign finance laws?

Something is weird with that dossier. It would be kind of blackly humorous if a bunch of people broke themselves over that piece of shit.

That's all pretty fascinating stuff. But I think the issue is burning coal in a modern home with the entire home wrapped and sealed up as tight as possible. A decent sized coal fire, deprived of oxygen becomes a smoldering pile of CO emitting death. Sure, some goes up the chimney, but some doesn't.

There are ways around it, which I have done, with outside air being available close to combustion, but I'd still advise against it.

Better to have an outside/inside system where the coal is burned outside and a hydroponic system brought the heat inside.

198 ...Later on Friday, Cotton responded to the South Carolina Senator, telling a group of reporters on Capitol Hill that because Graham failed to win the Republican presidential primary in 2016, he is unqualified to lead the charge on immigration issues nows.

"The difference between Steve King and Lindsey Graham is that Steve King can actually win an election in Iowa," Cotton said. "Look, we had an election in 2016. Immigration was a major issue there and the American people and especially Republican primary voters made it clear that they wanted Donald Trump's vision of immigration policy, not Lindsey Graham's. He didn't make it to the starting line and he didn't even make off the kiddie table in the debates."

208 Soft coal is bituminous, but coal dealers hated people down-grading so they called it lignite out of spite. Lignite is like peat. It's for flavoring whiskey malt.

Our industrial customers wouldn't use any bituminous unless they had a grinder/mixer to blow it in with some anthracite. You get a pretty damn good fire from that. Except for actual power plants, those were a poor investment, because you no more than got rid of your coal shovellers than it was time to close the plant. Dad wasted all his spare time one year learning how to sell, install and service those Iron Fireman units for houses. Meh.

It was wrong to blame factory coal users for visible air pollution in most places, though. Anthracite boilers with blowers were not producing pollution -- that you could see (bwa ha ha...). Making steel is different, because coke is an actual chemical catalyst in the process.

209 To try to explain a coal furnace, it was in basement guess 4 feet in diameter ( being a kid size is hard to gauge in memory) the coal , wood to start went in a door similarly to a steam train. As it burned down adding shovel fulls of coal you had a arm on side you cranked back and forth that raked internally the bottom ashes which fell into a bottom compartment which got shoveled out in metal cans as often there still could be hot. There were ducts that would spread the heat around, my grandparents hose had vents in the 2nd floor to let heat upstairs. The first floor had a big grate we would get dressed over as kids in the winter.

Don't get me wrong. I thought Cashill's arguments are were good. And he made a convincing case.

I just don't have quite a lot of faith in the amount of certainty some people gain from textual analysis.

I definitely do think that there is something just strange about the whole dossier. And the analysis I'm reading at AT right now, is hitting home. There are some *terrible* constructions (still, anybody can write a bad sentence).

I've heard that theory. I don't think we know that as a fact yet, though.

If Nellie Ohr is a native English speaker, or uses words normally, Cashill's analysis kind of puts strain on the idea that it would even be her--but of course, I'd leave to Cashill to track down some of her writing. I *know* about textual analysis, but 1) I'm not skilled in it, and 2) I don't have enough confidence in it to bother.

Posted by: Under Fire at January 19, 2018 05:03 PM (r9UYA)

227 @209 You got it. There was an outer jacket on that furnace, though. Cooled air would fall ("gravity furnace" because no duct blower) through fat pipes back into that jacket, not the actual combustion chamber, and then the heated air would go up one pipe to the grille the cat lays on. The gases and smoke were separated from the hot air, just as your heat exchanger does not, on a good day, pass natural gas fumes into your heat ducts.

Late in the game, there were various forms of packaged coal that avoided the bin pile and shovel, and there were automatic devices to add coal a little at a time overnight. But that fire did have to be tended, part of a dad's chores.

Now McConnell, master of the political stratagem, is taunting the Dems by pointing out that there are almost 9 million precious doe-eyed widdle kids on CHIP, but only 690K current recipients of DACA "protection". CHIP would end with appropriations deadline tonight (not really, probably), DACA situation (quite illegal, still, even after Trump EO'd it) lasts until March.


I well remember the crowds at Trump rallies chanting about protecting CHIP.


I remember the exit polling in the Rust Belt states, showing how CHIP was the thing that enTrumpified the electorate.


And it's long been an axiom of politics that the GOP's best angle is always to paint itself as the champion of helpless widdle victims, rescued by noble magical guvamint programs.

245 missed this thread until now.

While America's production is going up, Venezuela's is going down, dropping 29% in just the last 12 months. The cause isn't hard to figure - the Venezuelan Govm't has been stripping every petrodollar they can out of its oil subsidiary, and they have absolutely Zero into any field or equipment maintenance.

Oil fields aren't magic valves that one turns on to watch money come out - their equipment take constant maintenance and work, just like an old car does. I've read that of the drilling and workover rigs left in the country when the major's pulled out, EVERY ONE is now broken down and waiting on parts. And Venezuela can't buy parts because they have no money left, and what money they can find has to go for food.

And now Venezuela's solution, over the last month, has been to arrest 70 Pdvsa executives (the state oil company) and to replace them with Generals who have never set foot in an oil field with their lives. I guess the plan is that if the Oil Wells stay broken down and refuse to produce, the Generals will line up a firing squad and shoot at them.

And, just in time for ethanol demand to jack up the price of corn. So there the damn thing sets.

He's not totally pissed off though, since we're both old enough to have seen the pendulum swing a couple of times. If things get dicey enough he can un-sod his side lot and probably grow enough "dent" to keep the pipes from freezing. As long as we can get gas for the tillers. He's not ready for oxen.

260 Steam heat is a great way to heat a house during winter. You get moist warm air. Forced heat is always dry.

Posted by: Puddin Head at January 19, 2018 05:12 PM (YV+SU)


Forced air is not just dry, but you have the 'wind chill' factor. Seventy degree air blowing across me? Sweater time. You don't want to sit outside in summer when it's seventy degrees with *any* air movement. It's not pleasant.

I like my hydroponic system with 10,000 feet of copper (slight exaggeration) on every outside wall. Sixty five degrees in winter feels like shorts and t-shirt weather. It's constantly pumpin' btu like a summa bitch. Go closer to the outside wall and it gets even hotter.

The downside? Expensive as hell. Inefficient as hell. Prone to freezing up and raising holy hell if the temp goes too low.

But the best. With an asterisk or ten.

261 When I was 19, I got a chance to stay in a cabin my grandfather owned out in the woods in Wisconsin. June nights were still cold, and he had a potbellied cast iron stove in that cabin for heat with a bucket of coal chunks next to it. I had never seen real coal before, but i figured what the heck, it burns, so I loaded that potbelly up, lit it, and went to sleep in a little side room where the bed was.

I woke up at about 2 AM to this weird glow - couldn't figure it out since no lights were on - and I looked into the main room and that entire stove was glowing a bright, bright cherry red. Scared the shit out of me, especially since at this point it was way too hot for me to even get very close to it. I moved everything flammable away (some stuff was already smoking) and got the door open with a stick, and I started slowly sprinkling little bits of water into the fire. I think it took me most of the night to stop that thing from glowing.

I should have burned myself up in that building that night - one more time my life was spared in spite of my best efforts.

Posted by: Tom Servo at January 19, 2018 05:22 PM (k1TUh)

262 @255 Yep. Putting a full "wabash" into a regular air-tight stove would blow it up real good. Now, the old wood furnaces, which you'd be lucky to see one of, had a lot more thermal mass to them, and would take the heat, although the grates would be different.

Steam heat is bone-dry. The steam is inside that radiator, not out in the room. Only a home designed to have servants would have had steam heat, because it takes an operating engineer to run the boiler safely. You can run a warm-water boiler with the same pipes and radiators, without as much white-knuckle precision. There were even some systems with no circulator pumps, that just worked by convection.

Burning natural gas releases a great deal of water vapor. I suppose that in the most modern systems that all goes out the cool little plastic pipe, but 50 years ago it would precipitate all over the basement. Oil had less vapor, and that was seen as an advantage, but if your oil jets weren't just right you'd get that fuel-oil residue and smell, which I think is dirtier than coal dust.

266 HYDRONIC. Hydroponic is how you grow pot in a greenhouse.
It is not inefficient. It's your boiler that's probably inefficient.
Mine is over 50 years old and is still saving me hundreds every year, compared to the fuel oil forced-air we used to have. Of course, when Dad put that first furnace in, oil was 3 cents a gallon.

Again, forced-air duct systems convey a lot more moisture through the house than any piped-water system. If it's coming out too dry, you can add a humidifier, something you can't do with hydronic even if you need it.

You do not want your house air completely dry. It's bad for you, and it feels cold. After I cheated and installed an actually air-tight roof, I didn't need humidifiers any more, which was great because they are a hazard and a PITA.

NFL Playoffs Ratings Plunge by 23 Million

Yup.

Yep, every single game was down, no matter how good the games were. And, remember, three of these games were highly competitive in the divisional round this year. Whereas last year only two of the games were competitive. Hell, three of the four windows even feature one of the same teams from last year. And yes, I know, the Cowboys and the Packers played last year and those are the two biggest fan base draws in the NFL, but even if you pull that game out the numbers for the other three games also declined double digits. (The three other games were down 15.3%, 10.4% and 5.6%)

Adding all these numbers up 120.8 million viewers watched the NFL divisional round playoffs in 2018 vs. 144.1 million who watched in 2017, a decline of 23.3 million total viewers.

It's bad enough that Stephen Smith says the NFL needs Tom Brady to get healthy and the Patriots to advance to the Super Bowl in order to avoid a total NFL ratings debacle.

"The NFL has had a rough season, we know why: the protests, the ratings, the negative publicity, all of this other stuff, things that had nothing to do with play on the field most of the time. Itís sullied this brand to some degree, and has obviously raised the eyebrows of folks inside and outside the NFL," Smith said during the lead-in to his Friday "First Take" broadcast.

He continued, "Now you have the Super Bowl coming up. You have a five-time Super Bowl champion, a league M.V.P. multiple times over, a guy that's obviously considered one of, if not the greatest, quarterbacks in the history of football. You remove him from the Super Bowl, and what do you have? Blake Bortles against Case Keenum or Nick Foles. Are you kidding me? The NFL needs Tom Brady desperately, there is no doubt about that, more so than ever before. He is holding the National Football League in the palm of his hands right now, because whatís the Super Bowl without him this year?"


On a personal note, this is the first year I am almost entirely NFL-free. Though I haven't really watched the NFL for a few years, I did occasionally check in with the Giants' standings or click on a sports site to see clips from some games.

This year, I did none of that. I was only vaguely aware that Giants were having a bad season, even by mid-season. I wasn't even full sure of that. When I mentioned this to a friend I used to watch the Giants with, I was vague about the Giants having a losing season -- I vaguely said "How about those Giants?" and waited for him to confirm or deny that they sucked - because I wasn't even sure they had a losing season. Heck, maybe they just had another mediocre season. (Spoiler alert: They did in fact have a very losing season.)

I did not know the playoffs started a couple of weeks ago until I saw Hot Air mention it Saturday afternoon.

I did not know who was playing in the playoffs. In prior years, I at least had some basic sense of the contenders, if not the just-barely-snuck-in-wildcards.

This year, I had no idea. The only teams I know for a fact are in it are the Patriots (saw a headline yesterday that Brady had injured his hand) and the Steelers. (I think on that last one -- I don't know if they won or not.)

No idea at all on the NFC side. Atlanta, maybe?

(No, I think Atlanta lost. First I thought Atlanta won because John Ekdahl is calling himself "Sacksonville" on Twitter, which I thought was a sarcastic, bitter insult to his team, which I figured must have gotten sacked a lot. Now I'm guessing that they did the sacking themselves, and so this is a rare not-sarcastic remark from Ekdahl.)

Oh- I did see a fleeing bit of footage of late-game touchdown in the Baltimore-New Orleans game -- Neil Cavuto played it-- so I guess I know, now that I bother to probe my memory, that Baltimore is in it. (But have they lost yet? I don't know!)

This year may be the first year I completely blow off the Super Bowl. Even if the Dreamy Tom Brady does start in it.

Maybe I also blew off last year's game; I forget. I know one recent year I didn't watch the first half, but tuned in for most of the second after I got the impression from social media and blog comments that it was a competitive game.

Anyway, not really feeling I'm missing anything. Looks like 23 million other people are not really missing anything along with me.

What about you guys? If you've stopped watching, what phase are you in? Are you in the phase I was in two years ago (watched some clips and recaps), last year (checked the paper occasionally, watched an occasional game digest on YouTube), or this year (only saw one football play by accident on Neil Cavuto)?

33 The playoffs doing very poorly is a hopeful sign that maybe this year people will blow off the Superbowl more than last year. Last year everyone was "this game is starting to stink maybe I'll watch something else" but they all lined up to watch the big game.

This year, I hope it craters. Badly. That's really the only way the NFL might buy a clue.

I did see a fun report that the teams with the most kneeling knuckleheads also did the worst or didn't even make the playoffs.

I'm Over The Air (OTA) antenna and streaming. But I don't contribute any dollars or buy from the advertisers. But I've been watching the Philadelphia Eagles -- who have never won the Super Bowl. They won the year before it got called that, though. They had an incredible season with their AoS worthy QB. Till he got double-teamed at the knees by some thugs.

I've read that none of the teams with kneelers made it to the playoffs. I think there's an Eagle who's kind of outspoken, but it's being downplayed locally.

54 I occasionally watched some college football; that was it. Last year I occasionally watched NFL games I was interested in. This year, I did not. I have a lot of things competing for my time. If NFL games become less fun to watch, they fall off the time-sink cliff.

It didn't help them that I got a DVR for OTA broadcasts right about when the season started. NFL games are usually at a time when it is easy to watch them; other things I might want to watch (I finally got to see The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, which always seems to be in re-runs at about 3 AM) weren't, but now it doesn't matter.

Similarly for college football which seem to start earlier than I'd like. I set to record, and when I get up I watch the recording in progress. Due to skipping through commercials, by the time the game is over I'm caught up.

Watched one game because my father-in-law had it on.

Posted by: rickb223 at January 19, 2018 02:44 PM (fXB+v)

61 I missed the entire 2010-2011 season because Iraq. Except for one game. Giants, Eagles, and I think it was week 17. If the Giants punt the ball a) at least 25 yards, and b) out of bounds... they win and go to the playoffs.

So they punt the ball directly at the punt returner (blanking on his name... just woke up from a nap) and he returns it for a touchdown on the last play.

And that is how I came closest to firing my weapon in anger whilst deployed to a relatively safe FOB in Iraq.

Posted by: Arch Stanton at January 19, 2018 02:44 PM (MCbul)

62 I kinda want Jacksonville to get in, because I got to see Blake Bortles play back in his college days, and he was unbelievable back then. He's starting to get back a little of his old spark. (admittedly most college defenses can't hold a candle to an NFL defense, so he's had to up his game) So I'm kind of a Bortles fan.

Still, J-ville is not that marketable, and would be a disaster for ratings.

Posted by: Tom Servo at January 19, 2018 02:44 PM (k1TUh)

63 I only knew the playoffs were on because have a coworker who is a "conservative Christian" post nonstop shit on the MN Vikings on her FB wall because she is a fucking idiot.

I have to admit anyone who still watches NFL and purports to support conservatism, America, etc is off my Christmas card list.

64 I still watch but not with the same gusto as I have in the past. Hell the Vikings are in the NFC title game and I don't care, I'll watch but it's whatever at this point. Overall I've watched less games and been just as happy as in the past, I've been trending this way for awhile but the protests, double downs etc. definitely sped up my decline in watching.

The Eagles were actually one of the biggest protesting teams, at least in the early parts of the season. And Chris Long donated his entire season's salary to SJW causes.

We dropped it all. Ever bit of it. We are going through the last of our merchandise as it wears out.

I'm completely done. I have family planted from just about every war we fought in this country since the late 1800's. I have family members that fought in just about every branch. I'm a vet myself.

71 I still played fantasy but stopped watching the games. Easier when your team has a terrible season (Texans).

Jacksonville in the SB would just be funny. Such a small market team, and to knock the Pats out, it would kill ratings....no way the league lets that happen (looking at you refs)

74 Watched zero football this year. My big break from the NFL was in 2002, when I moved overseas and never really missed it.

But I used to sort of keep up with the Giants, albeit from Texas. But not that anymore. And used to watch superbowls, but I haven't watched a full superbowl in years either now.

Sort of got sucked into the MN stuff because of family from there, and actually had an intention to watch the game last week, but didn't.

42 I might have to turn in my Packers jammies for this, but oh man - I really want to see the Vi-Queens go to the Superbowl. That play at the end of last week's game should qualify them just on that alone.
---------------------------
I always root for teams that have never won a SB and Vikings clearly qualify. Having said that, they have a peculiar problem similar to the Falcons - they are a one half team. They play the first half like true champions and then give up a ton of points in the second without really scoring themselves. Saw this play out against the Redskins (with 21 starters injured) and the Saints. If they go against the Pats they'd better have a plan for the second half or they will be this year's Falcons all over again.

Posted by: Puddin Head at January 19, 2018 02:46 PM (YV+SU)

76 Not watched a game. Checked the standings 3-4 times during the season and to see who made the playoffs. I have checked the playoff scores after the games end, but that is mostly hoping the Patriots lost and seeing that the traitorous Rams lost their playoff game. Every once in awhile I would feel the urge to turn on a game, but it passed pretty quickly. Enjoyed some College football when I could, but unfortunately I work Saturdays and the Noles actually had a truly shit season for once.

89 btw, apropos of nothing - worst NFL game of the year was that last cowboys - eagles game, where the cowboys "won" 6 - 0. It was like a contest where both sides were trying as hard as they could to lose, and eagles left their entire first string on the bench the whole game.

and the cowboys played as hard as they could against a second string team and only scored 6 points. pathetic.

93 Was never more than a casual observer/fan (well, maybe when I was a kid, for the home team). All NFL watching for years has been almost exclusively social - group of guys I've known since my yute. It's been a nice hub, venue for that purpose.


That disappeared when the Chargettes moved to LA. Only one gathering all season, to see their glorious failure to make the playoffs (last game).


One of the gang who always hosts a great SooperBowl party had to cancel this year, due to a family situation. Which nicely removes the conflict of not wanting to see the game, but also not wanting to miss the event.

This year he's having an Unbowl event. He'll be showing some clips of old Redskin Super Bowl plays --- yeah, Riggins running over Dolphins, etc. But then we're watching the Knute Rockne movie with Reagan in it! (THat was an idea some moron here came up with, BTW.)
And they'll also run Remember the Titans because kids love it and the real-life championship was played here in SW VA and some of the peeps have actual ties to Andrew Lewis, the losing school.

Anyway, so far 5 out of the usual 6 invitees have responded favorably. Only one couple is wavering.

I haven't watched a game since week 2. I used to follow the Chiefs and the Cowboys. I don't know what precisely the Chiefs did, though the first memoriabilia burning video I saw was a KC fan, so I assume they knelt with their brethren.

And then I spent 36 hours holding my breath the friggin' Jerry Jones would be the voice of reason on MNF, and, nope. They all knelt to show solidarity with my enemies (both with regard to BLM, and as a response to Trump who was speaking for me on the matter).

This was easier it seemed when NASCAR was on, but once the various racing seasons ended, I found I didn't much miss the NFL.

I still run a yahoo pick league for a handful of friends, but all I don for that is dump the scores into a spreadsheet I designed years ago. I don't know if I'll continue it after this year, but I didn't want to shut it down abruptly as I run it as a favor to one of them.

141 Even if it weren't for the SJW stuff, the NFL needs to get it's act together in a number of ways.

People are mad at endless penalties (especially the pass interference calls that end up resulting in huge gain). Some franchise fans are mad at poor ownership and teams that can't seem to do anything right (Hi Cleveland). Everyone is bored with the same couple teams in the AFC doing well (though this may change when Brady and/or R oethlisberger retire). And then there's the head injuries, CTE worries that are at the back of everyone's mind but nobody wants to talk about.

"Paramedics were called to the home of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Friday for low blood sugar, a Supreme Court spokesperson told CNN.

The liberal associate justice was treated for the low blood sugar and promptly returned to work.

Sotomayor, 63, has Type 1 diabetes, a disease that attacks the body's means of producing insulin, which regulates blood sugar. "

163 I happily stopped watching this year. Which was great because I was able to put up SO MANY SHELVES.

Seriously, tho, I watched maybe 30-45 minutes of NFL total, all year - and the only reason it was that high was it was on the TV Thanksgiving day when I visited the extended family.

What I DID watch was the wonderful college football play this year - I went to Alabama, my wife went to Georgia, so needless to say we both enjoyed what teams got to the National Championship Game. She wasn't happy about the ending, unfortunately.

175 I'm a Patriots fan, so my plan is to keep watching them until they fall back to mediocrity like everyone else. In other words, any day now and as soon as TB12 retires and the hoody coincidentally hangs it up the next day. I already don't watch any game that doesn't involve my team. If my team stinks, I won't bother with them either. The Patriots were the joke of the league for the first 30 years of my life, so I make no apologies for wringing every second of enjoyment out of their most-hated-status dynasty since 2001. But when that's over, I'm done. I quit Facebook 2 years ago, and that was even easier than I thought. Dropping the NFL will be a piece of cake, and give me one less reason to give ESPN a click every now and then.

It was a tipping point for the country, IMO. A bellwether of how serious people were about America. No one thought fans would do it. I'm proud people did. It was the red line in the sand, even for non-political people. And it tipped the balance.

May everyone continue to endure. Maybe we will eventually get real football back if we do.

Oh well, soon the season will be over and I can start obsessing over my Dodgers again. Clayton Kershaw's probably still out on a mission trip to Africa somewhere, so I won't worry about his stats just yet.

One guy painted his house in Packers colors. Until this year. He painted it normal colors. And a lot less Packer clothing seen around.

Don't get too excited. Her life expectancy at 63 now (without diabetes is like 83 -85 years old). Diabetes type one reduces that 13 years. So age seventy to seventy two. Statistically speaking which has little to do with an individual's reality.

When you cut the cable there's a lot of cool stuff you can buy with the savings. First thing I got was what you would consider the bargain basement Tivo -- called a PVR. With storage less than one dead president.

I start recording a football game that starts at 1 pm -- at 1 pm. D'uh. At three o'clock I start watching the recording. FF, FF, FF, FF. At about four o'clock, just as most games end, I catch up to realtime. One hour wasted vs three hours.

No commercials. Replay anything I want.

The cool stuff which is coming out for cable cutters is getting better every day. Including the ability to 'broadcast' OTA to multiple devices.

323 I'm torn. On the one hand, my college has a really good guy on the Patriots; good guy, great story. One of their top guys. It's one of the few guys from my alma mater playing pro ball (most of the rest are stuck on teams like the Browns). So I want him to do well.

But... it's the evil empire Pats. And the NFL.

I compromise: I read the story about how well everyone does in the local rag the next day, and don't watch the games.

Heck, in my family with the wife and all, watching any sport is practically verboten. Even girly sports like women's soccer or gymnastics (Wifey thinks I only watch them to check out the chicks. Well, what other reason is there to watch women's soccer or gymnastics?)

324 Been a Broncos fan since the '80s, watched every game I could in recent memory (even last year). Super Bowl wins, Super Bowl losses. Loved my team.

Did not watch even one game this year, I think I saw half of a pre-season game. I think we had a shitty year. Not sure. I think we had 3 different starting quarterbacks, including Osweiler ("We'll never forget you, Brent!"). Not sure.

Took the Broncos sticker off my truck. Unfollowed the Broncos and Mile High Report on Facebook.

Don't miss it at all, really.

Been watching some Legends Football League games on Youtube, will probably watch them some when their season starts up in a couple months.

I do, however, keep following the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders on FB. They haven't done anything wrong by their fans. And Jozie and Breanna are both just cute as a drawer full of grandma's buttons.

331 I have watched a few games when my Dad a who is a Super Dooper Broncos fan invites me over. He's a Korean war vet and he told me that he feels like the freedom to protest is why he served. But he also feels like it is totally fine not to watch people protesting if you don't want. It's still a free country he says.

My brothers served and they feel the same way as Dad.
Sometimes we get together and watch as a family, which is how we saw the Vikes (one brother is a Vikings fan) beat the Saints at the last minute. Great ending btw.

Since my dad is 83 and you never know how long you will have them I always go when he invites me over. It makes his day. But otherwise I don't even follow my own team anymore. Hubby gave all his Packer stuff away at the beginning of the year and hasn't watched a single minute of his team.

This year, I had no interest in watching any other games, and usually the Lions are about a third of my total NFL time--because I occasionally like to watch teams that know what they are doing--especially during the Matt Millen experiment.

My plan was to watch the Lions until it became obvious that they were out. Well, they hung on all season until ... FRICKIN' BENGALS! (Or as they say in the AFC North: Been-gals)

No other games, and no playoffs, and I'm not going to watch the SB. Superbowl Sunday was on its way to being a national holiday, it seemed.

Now it should be called Goodell-screwed-the-pooch Sunday.

Yeah the timing was designed todisrespect the flag. Itkilled their stupid Muh Principles argument.

They tried damage control by running these crazy PSA's showing players somberly intoning their love for the military and hanging out with vets. It was so staged and phony. One of them starred Malcolm Jenkins who was a driver of the demand list presented to Goodell. Goodell promptly moved millions of the dollars earmarked for veteran charities and even susan komento the BLM NFLers.

345 This year, I had no idea. The only teams I know for a fact are in it are the Patriots (saw a headline yesterday that Brady had injured his hand) and the Steelers. (I think on that last one -- I don't know if they won or not.)

No idea at all on the NFC side. Atlanta, maybe?

(No, I think Atlanta lost. First I thought Atlanta won because John Ekdahl is calling himself "Sacksonville" on Twitter, which I thought was a sarcastic, bitter insult to his team, which I figured must have gotten sacked a lot. Now I'm guessing that they did the sacking themselves, and so this is a rare not-sarcastic remark from Ekdahl.)

Oh- I did see a fleeing bit of footage of late-game touchdown in the Baltimore-New Orleans game -- Neil Cavuto played it-- so I guess I know, now that I bother to probe my memory, that Baltimore is in it. (But have they lost yet? I don't know!) -Ace-

351 I'll probably watch the Superbowl just because that's where the new years ad campaigns are launched. Commercials are better than the game.

At halftime, I always change the channel to the Puppy Bowl o Animal Planet.

The Allstate Mayhem commercials have been pretty good this year. Did a nice job of building up some anticipation for what they were going to do.

I realize I've come to the End State of modern television. The commercials interest more than the programming does. Probably because they have better acting and far better writing.

382 I had a great year watching the Redskins. No matter how many starters got hurt they always found a way to score points. It was interesting watching Cousins make chicken salad out of chicken shit every week and then hear his critics. Sense Rypien went down in 92 we have been looking for a starting QB and now that we have one everyone thinks we could do better. Its maddening. If the Skins don't sign him they are going to have to blow up the team and start another rebuild effort.

418 2 points of hypocrisy

1) if you really care about black lives, you'll spend the 15 minutes necessary to research the Michael Brown case the Trayvon Martin case the Freddie gray case. 15 minutes to discover it wasn't police brutality. They say they care but they can't even do the basic research about these lives they pretend to care so much about.

2) if I thought the government was murdering my people in the streets do you really think my form of protest would be taking a knee during a song? How lame. If they really believe this they would quit the NFL and pick up a rifle. Posers likely compensating for all the interns they've abused in their career.

426 cubbies and cactus league - it amazes me how big a deal that Cactus League has become. When I was a kid in Phoenix (close to the Scottsdale line, under Camelback) the Cubs used to have winter practice in old run down wooden ball park over in Scottsdale, one that would embarrass most high school teams. But it was fun since my brother and I could ride our bikes over there and, behind center field, climb up into the scoring box and watch the practices from there. No one cared back then.

Heard they made the playoffs this year, just by overhearing televisions in restaurants, I think. Have no idea how they did.

I must admit, though, my boycott/abandonment of the NFL has been coming for a few years now, and not so much because of the leftist politicization of the NFL, but because:

a) It had become like professional wrestling, with pre-determined outcomes based on popularity of the players involved. If I had to watch big dumb Payton Manning be awarded one more last-minute drive by the officials, I would have shat blood.

b) Hockey's a better game, with better human beings as participants. Go Red Wings.

437 "Lets all send her some candy to speed her recovery."

Actually, when a diabetic is having an attack of LOW blood sugar (insulin reaction), a piece of candy (something chewable like a chocolate bar) or a shot of orange juice is exactly what you SHOULD give them in order to boost the sugar level. It can happen if, for example, they take a shot of insulin in anticipation of a meal but get busy doing something else and forget to eat on time. My mom was a Type 2 diabetic and this happened to her several times that I can recall.

471 I haven't deliberately watched a Goodell Football League game since the first week of the season (a couple have been on the monster tv screens at brewpubs but I pretty much ignore them). I'm pretty sure the league has paid money back to the networks for not hitting ratings targets (this may have been mentioned earlier and I just got here). Also they cancelled televising the last Sunday Night game in anticipation of horrible ratings.

I haven't missed them a bit. Fuck them.

Same thing is happening to Star Wars. Burn it to the ground.

The Super Bowl is garbage. It is so hard to watch with all the promotion, constantly, and the stupid vulgar commercials reminding us we're idiots for watching it.

The halftime show takes forever and is a mess. Prince was great, phenmomenal. But the music industry has what? No acts! They wouldn't book Kid Rock, the progs running the networks wouldn't have that.

The Steelers hired a Rooney Rule guy in Mike Tomlin...dude has proven himself to be not the best coach. Big Ben and his crew bail his ass out all the time. It is hard to watch these games with Tomlin and his freaking out because he has no idea what to do. The Steelers won't can his ass.

It has lost all it's innocence and grandeur, for plastic trinkets and fake drama.

Watching some of those old games, they were really good, the announcers had character and could joke freely...Marv Albert!

And let's not get into the scripted feel of these games...sure is some weird shit that happens.

NFL HQ decides that the league needs to spend millions on social justice. I decide to tell the NFL to get bent.

585 Grump928(C): "Defense has too much advantage in Soccer. Modify the offsides rule and allow fast breaks and it would be better."

This.

Unless both teams have superb ball possession skills where crisp passing and designed plays are evident, the game is objectively boring. Scores of 1-0, while exciting in the sense that one screw-up can cost a game, waiting for that one and only screw-up for 90 minutes is tedious. Open it up so that people get opportunities to watch multiple scores rather than breathless replays of the singular exciting event of the game.

I'd even occasionally tolerate guys acting like their spines were removed after a love tap if the scoring was on the order of 7 - 5.

595 Used to watch some NFL long ago, but God converted me, and I started reading the Bible and going to church. Found a good pastor that preached 2 good sermons, with a great halftime of snacks and hanging with other Christians in between.

I still like to watch the UW Huskies on Saturday, but this year was almost all night games, so I'd just watch them on TV, but go to bed at 10p, whether it was over or not, because I don't want to be nodding out in church.

By the way, I flew down to see the UW/Stanford game in Palo Alto, and the stadium looked only half-full. What? Then the band came out at halftime, and just trashed President Trump and spelled out USSR to the boos of their own fans.

But, so far, college football is politics-free. We're a little worried about Chip Kelly at Ucla, but we're happy we've got Chris Petersen. Go Huskies!

Maybe some post-season? I still love watching college football, and some boxing and MMA stuff. But otherwise, watching movies and reading books with my wife. Very enjoyable. Unlike watching a bunch of unpatriotic dimwits disrespect the flag that gives them the freedom to become millionaires playing a children's game.

601 My interest in the NFL has been diminishing for years. The kneeling bs all but killed it.

I hate instant replay - make the call and move on. Delays kill momentum and alter the game - and are often inconclusive to boot. Combined with the increase in ridiculous and inconsistent penalties - esp rules re roughing the passer - introduce a level of randomness that undermines the (real-time) veracity of the game.

Most every rule change the last 30 years has been designed to speed the game and/or favor the passing game thereby diminishing the importance of a running game that keeps the ball in bounds. By far the largest effect has been to amplify and make glaringly obvious the abilities/incompetence of QBs. (Are the league wide differences in QB talent really that much greater than 30 or 40 years ago? Or just more obvious?) The ever increasing value of QBs justifies ever more ridiculous QB protection rules, diminishing the quality of the games.

I will watch random games when I feel like it and the playoffs - if I am not doing something else. But my days of making time to watch the NFL are over.

603 The scene Ace recounted of asking his friend "How about those Giants?" is one that must have happened tens of millions of times. This occurrence happened to me at least 3 times...twice regarding the Rams (my local team) and once regarding the Seahawks. The Seahawks fan is a guy with season tickets and shows up face painted wearing seahawk colors only and this year he sold his tickets to the highest bidder and stayed home. He watched Seahawks games only on TV until it was clear they were not going to make it and then just turned off the NFL altogether.

605 This has been the first season where I've chosen to watch games because I thought they'd be good, rather than because my team was playing or because my buddies wanted to watch the Super Bowl. I've watched less football this year than the last few, but what I saw was better than normal.

Going out of my way to watch the Baltimore-New Orleans playoff and the Eagles-Rams game late in the regular season were totally worth it. Much better than watching Buffalo get stomped by the Patriots yet again.

And with the end of their season went the rest of my interest in the NFL this season. I'm a veteran. I do take it personally that these spoiled, narcissistic turds claim the mantle of patriotism through protest at the expense of the fans who pay their hard earned money to go be "entertained" by them. It's not patriotic to jump on a bandwagon. It's not patriotic to bite the hand that feeds you. Burn it all to the ground. I hope the damn thing fails.

107 Like you wrote a couple days ago Ace, the nevertrump right has bought into the left's idea of cultural doyennes, and so its gauche and unhip to oppose abortion at any level and to any degree.

I know that you probably are fine with abortion at least to some degree, but you're at least able to separate your personal beliefs from an analysis of the president's actions and words.

The truth is, President Trump probably was all in on abortion until not too long ago, and I think his lovely and talented wife had a lot to do with that. She seems to have done amazing things for him, helping him to be a better man.

And really, that's the best we can ask from a wife.

Years ago, when on other blogs, I'd see posters who would rather not vote than vote for someone who countenanced any form of abortion.

So if you had a D who was for abortion at anytime for any reason vs an R who was only against abortion after the second trimester and partial birth abortion, they'd sit the election out. They had rationalizations for this, naturally. It just struck me as foolishness.

Saw some lame-ass response from the Vatican on that -the award was not given for her pro-abortion activities.
As a practicing Catholic, I am ashamed. I guess certain tenets of the faith are up for interpretation or can be overlooked depending on other factors.

Substitute love of abortion with

1. hatred of the death penalty
2. regard for immigration law or secure borders (for the US and Europe)
3. preservation of the state of Israel.

200 This is major stuff. And greatly appreciated by those who have kids, that one day a sick society might decide are expendable.

I have three special needs kids.

Yep its hard and all, but the little victories, the successes, which to others would be nothing, are soooo sweet. And, oh yeah, finding meaning in life is pretty much a snap. At this point, I recognize the tremendous gift it is to be entrusted with such a challenge. In the end, "people got problems". Eventually life tests everyone with "problems".

Abortion claims to "solve" people's problems by getting rid of people. Which is like curing dandruff by cutting off heads.

when they're trying to negotiate. Because apparently he makes Dick

202 >>>He was speaking live...at the WH...to a group from the rally. Now that may have been broadcast at the big rally but it wasn't video where he was.

As I said, he was not speaking in person but via video feed. Of course video is not video at the source, unless you are Max Headroom.

Yup.

So. The answer to when will we get someone who campaigns as a moderate (shut up with your facts it gets in the way of my snark) and then governs as a conservative is Donald Freaking Trump.

Okie dokie.

Posted by: The Dr. Brake Bemoray at January 19, 2018 01:06

Shapiro frustrates me greatly. The guy is sharp, and does a good job preaching conservative principles to young people (and epically smacking down those that challenge him), but anything related to Trump seems to make him irrational and reactionary. Unlike most #Nevertrumpers, he at least still has actual beliefs and principles I mostly agree with, which is what makes it so infuriating.

Grant and Sherman had issues, but Lincoln was right to keep them, because they fought and believed in victory. Trump is the same, destroying the left (and GOPe) beyond anything I had realistically expected, and people like Shapiro still piss and moan about ankle-biters.

211 Cyrus of Persia defeated the Babylonians and allowed the Israelites to return home. For Christians and Jews, there is nothing unbiblical about benefitting from a leader who doesn't share your theological beliefs.

To add to this point, the contemporary prophet calling himself after the prophet Isaiah ("deutero-Isaiah", to nerds) went so far as to call Cyrus the Messiah.

218 I just may lead a ticker tape parade to my polling place to vote for him next time if he keeps this up. As my grandma was fond of telling me, the Lord works in mysterious ways His wonders to increase.

This is what frustrates me about guys like Sasse and other evangelical leader types. They do not seem to grasp that a man with a very bad past who speaks crudely can be used by God for wonderful things.

How many of them would have condemned Peter, or Sampson, or Jacob, or any of the many rascals, troublemakers, all men used mightily by God, in the Bible? This need for people to pass a certain behavior test or be ideal and holy to do a job is unreasonable and improper.

Its also dubious in terms of justification by faith and Christ's repeated example in the Bible of reaching out to people where they were and who they are instead of requiring them to be "good enough" for our standards.

The woman taken in adultery was an adulterer. Jesus defended her from the men and protected her, in love. These guys sound a lot more like the pharisees angry at him for hanging out with tax collectors and prostitutes than Jesus himself.

But a bit of it is self interest. The savages who have no problem with abortion would have even less of a problem (if that's possible) dealing with an old, helpless person. And I'm getting older. However, I'm staying well-armed.

229 Meanwhile, up here in upper Canafasciststan, Prime Minister Trudeau has instituted a religious test for organizations seeking to apply for funds for hiring summer students, a fund theoretically, and up until now available to anyone. Now organizations will need to sign a form indicating that among other things, they support women's abortion rights. Basically if your church wants to hire a few students to cut the grass, help your elderly parishioners, you will need to sign off on abortion. Not sure how cutting the grass will affect a woman's ability to seek an abortion, but there you have it.

Shapiro loathes Trump the way I loathe Bill Clinton, which is to say on the atomic level.

Here's the difference. I know that my loathing of Bill Clinton is such that I cannot begin to discuss him rationally and thus I don't.

Shapiro is full Outkast in everything he says about Trump and it utterly eviscerates his credibility in other areas. And he absolutely refuses to acknowledge this.

2. Will 25/25 or 24/25 of Salon's hot 25 come out against pro-life because of Trump.

3. OFF TOPIC but is Trump the best showman or what? He Named it "The Schumer Shutdown." As a staunch heterosexual, I love this man!!
