Black Friday ONT

Happy Black Friday! I hope all of you are rested from the feasting yesterday. I have a lot of links left over because I pretty much limited last night's ONT to Thanksgiving related stuff, so let's dive right in. We open with the eternal question: Is Die Hard a Christmas movie?

Die Hard.jpg

Millennials


Seems those feisty Millennials are inventin' again. This week, they invented water fountains.


Instead of That $5 Water Bottle at Airports, Filling Stations


Special bonus invention: Vending machines!

Vending.jpg

I can't wait until one of them reads about the old automats from the depression era. We'll be bombarded right and left with their brilliant new idea for a “self-service restaurant”! rolleyes1.gif


Wacky Wavy Arms!

For those of you that like these things, here's an entire video of them:


I like the Hillary one at around 9 minutes.


Twitter News

Twitter may be getting ready to purge conservatives from their site on December 18th. At least that's the theory this guy lays out here. They are going to start tracking the websites that users visit via the embedded Twitter button on such sites. Go to the wrong site and BLAMMO! You're gone. Seems to me this would be easy enough to beat, just use a dedicated browser only for Twitter. Still, as (if?) the reigns of power slip further out of Proggy hands, we can expect more of this type of attempt at control.

Minor Violations Lead to Massive Prosecution Fees in Two California Desert Towns

Seems a couple of towns hooked up with a couple of law firms to create quite a racket. People who get fined for minor violations also get huge bills from the law firms for the cost of prosecuting them. And THIS, ladies and gentlemen, this RIGHT HERE, is the problem with government. Government has a monopoly on the legal use of force, and if it is not tightly monitored by a vigilant citizenry, then powerful groups will always start to manipulate it for their own benefit. ALWAYS.


Why I Hate Canada


I vacationed in the Northwest Territories this past summer, and I don't think a day went by without my being tackled by a random naked guy.


Problematic


Blackfriars Priory School principal explains how awkward covered statue was bungled

Blackfriars Priory School in Australia commissioned a statue of St Martin de Porres feeding loaves of bread to poor children. Certainly a noble act, a fine example for the students of the school. Except...

Timing

The Weather Channel sent a camera crew to record the implosion of the old Georgia Dome. They arrived early, and took their time to find just the right angle for the event. Everything was perfect, and as the countdown commenced, they went live to the video feed:


This one benefits from sound


Thank You, President Trump

National Review, of all places, published this article.

This Thanksgiving, Thank Donald J. Trump


• The Dow Jones Industrial Average, NASDAQ, and S&P 500 all hit record highs on Tuesday. The Wilshire 5000 Index calculates that some $3.4 trillion in new wealth has been created since President Trump’s inauguration and $5.4 trillion since his election. Fueled by the reality of deregulation, expectations of lower taxes, and a new tone in Washington that applauds free enterprise rather than excoriate it, the economy is on fire.

• Atop the second quarter’s 3.1 percent increase in real GDP, and 3.0 in 3Q, the New York Federal Reserve Bank predicts that 4Q output will expand by 3.8 percent. This far outpaces the feeble average-annual GDP growth rate of 1.5 percent on President Obama’s watch. Meanwhile, the IMF expects global GDP to rise by 3.5 percent this year. So much for a Trump-inspired “global recession.”

• Unemployment is at 4.1 percent, a 17-year low. New unemployment claims in September were at their most modest since 1974. Goldman Sachs on November 20 “lowered our unemployment rate forecast to 3.7 percent by end-2018 and 3.5 percent by end-2019.” According to the Wall Street powerhouse’s chief economist Jan Hatzius, “Such a scenario would take the U.S. labor market into territory almost never seen outside of a major wartime mobilization.”

• American companies have been expanding operations here rather than shipping jobs overseas. Corning, for instance, announced a $500 million investment in new U.S. production, launching 1,000 positions.

Sure to be Controversial

Michael Vick reimburses creditors in rare debt payback

I understand the wrath directed at Michael Vick for the despicable things he did to his dogs, and I share it. I also understand that everyone claims to have “changed” after they get caught doing wrong. I also realize that most don't change, but some do. The way they act gives you a clue as to whether their contrition was genuine or not. Taking the very unusual route of paying back creditors at $.99 on the dollar because of a personal belief that it's wrong to stiff people doesn't change what happened to those dogs, but it is the act of someone with a personal sense of honor. In this at least, kudos to Vick.


Alberta Oil Peon's Kids

I don't know if AOP has kids, but if he does, this is how I imagine them spending the weekend. It almost worked too, all they needed was a tensioner for the chain (and probably a hand throttle).


You Will Never Be This Woke

Woke.jpg

And a good thing too. Also, The easily offended are offended...again. After 30 years, someone finally noticed that Apu from The Simpsons could be considered a stereotype, unlike every other character on the show. Thank goodness for that.

History and the Left


JFK, Monster
Why Stalin Starved Ukraine

Tonight's ONT brought to you by Big Dick. I know I'd love to have one.

17 Government has a monopoly on the legal use of force, [...]

++++

Not true! Not in the good old USA, anyway. We, the citizenry, have the right of self-defense, citizen's arrest, and the right to form militias.

We are a country of citizens, not serfs. This governmental monopoly of legal force theory sounds like left wing propaganda when you really examine it.

Aw Hell,
I coulda been first, but I was watching those boys doing their engineering prototype. All they have to do is get the kinks worked out, and they would have a mass market winner. If they can find liability lawyers who will cover them.

22 So I finished watching Punisher on Netflix. I won't give a long-winded review or anything, but I was disappointed. There wasn't anywhere near as much of the Punisher being, well, Punishery as there should have been. Too much time was spent on drama and a sub-plot that felt very forced.

Because he could.

Of course, Stalin didn't do those things. Other people did those things because Stalin told them to.

But if you think those things are going to replace a store, you have no concept of the idea of stock and actually shopping for food. I mean... these are the kind of people who order those expensive "we end you a dinner in a box" services and eat out every other night. Shopping? What's that?

Posted by: Weirddave at November 24, 2017 09:28 PM (Nyyc4)

++++

A citizen's arrest is a legal use of force. Self-defense is a legal use of force. Using force to defend another is a legal use of force. These are all LEGAL. Further more, they are all CONSTITUTIONAL, the highest law in the land.

It is the ideology of the left that we must depend on the government for the protection of ourselves and our communities. THIS IS FALSE. A citizen placing a criminal under arrest is LEGAL.

Of course, in other countries such as the UK, it is illegal to use force to defend yourself and your property. That is simply NOT the case in the USA. It is LEGAL to use force to defend life and property.

I'm am surprised you believe otherwise.

105 Anon Y. Mous, no, govt does have a monopoly on the LEGAL use of force. The 2nd gives the us the ABILITY to employ force if necessary, but while it may be RIGHT to use force against govt if it ever comes to that, such an act would never be LEGAL.

Posted by: Weirddave at November 24, 2017 09:28 PM (Nyyc4)

I disagree, WD. The second gives you the right to defend yourself- whether that be against another citizen or non-citizen, or against the government, if necessary. Such action is therefore legal.

The legal question is whether what you did constituted 'defense'.

The founders were worried about tyranny ('They saw tyranny coming in through the windows', as a college professor said.) The second is the last line of that defense and possibly the most important part of the constitution, for if it has be be invoked by the people against the government, then all the other prohibitions and limitations listed in the document have already been violated.

Dominoes is pushing pizza insurance. If something happens, like you drop your pizza upside down, after you leave the store we'll give you a new pizza.

How is this supposed to be a selling point? "Shit no, our pizza is nowhere near as good as Luigi's Authentic Local Pizza, but if you're stoned enough to order us in the first place we've got your back".

"Their pizza tastes good, but we'll protect you from your dumbassery".

"We have no idea what's good about our pizza, and neither did Marketing, so we hired some consultants from craigslist".

147 State Makes It Legal to Shoot Cops in Self-Defense If They Violate Your Rights
Is it ever legal to shoot cops? A growing number of states are passing laws that say that yes, in fact, sometimes it is well within a citizen's rights to shoot a police officer.

Other states have already ruled in favor of citizens shooting police officers in self-defense, (even hip-hop legend Tupac walked after shooting two cops in self-defense) now, in the state of Indiana, if a police officer initiates aggression without cause in someone's home, violence can be used against them in self-defense - including using lethal force.

The new law was drafted to "recognize the unique character of a citizen's home and to ensure that a citizen feels secure in his or her own home against unlawful intrusion by another individual or a public servant."


http://theantimedia.org/state-makes-it-legal-to-
shoot-cops-in-self-defense-if-they-violate-your-rights/

Of course, the problem with going toe to toe against the state and it's armed agents, is they can bring a lot more firepower to the fight. You may end up being vindicated, but it may be your estate that collects the penalty against the state for them killing you.

178 The chainsaw skateboard? They did it wrong. Motorized skateboard exist. Typically they use weed whacker engines. You can buy them ready-made.

They used bicycle chain, for one, which is really not suitable for motorized machines. Second, they have nowhere near enough gear reduction in their drive train, maybe 3:1. Something closer to 20:1 would be better.

If I were building it, I'd first remove the clutch drum from the saw, and mill down the saw chain sprocket to a shoulder that would accept a 1" or 1.25" weld-on #35 sprocket, and weld that on there. Then I would build a short jackshaft, with a 6" sprocket on one end, and another 1" sprocket on the other. Put an 8" sprocket on the wheel. Short primary chain from saw motor to 6" sprocket on jackshaft, longer chain from 1" sprocket on jackshaft to drive wheel. (Basically the same drive scheme as that little minibike the guy rode briefly.)

Guarantee you that if it were built as described, it would work.

No, I have no kids.

She is so lonely since my FIL died, but she won't get on with her life. She sits at home alone every day and refuses to get out and do things. We've tried to talk her into going to church where she could hang out with friends her age in similar circumstances.

214 Country Boy may have been banned after a dust up with CBD and one or more commenters. There was a thread several days ago - morningish - when Country Boy had his blood up, another commenter and CBD politely said words to the effect that Country Boy was resorting to ad hominem rather than criticizing someone on the merits, and Country Boy's last words were to the effect that he did no care what ad hominem meant (but more colorful). I can't be sure that's what did it though.

I fill it with water for the 35 minute ride to the airport. When empty I collapse down to its 1-2 inches and put it my computer bag. Once through security I find a water fountain and fill is up. I am too frugal to spend 3$-$4 for water at the airport. You can find it for sale on Amazon. It has paid for itself many times over.

252 Weirddave, you seem to be unaware of the concept of Citizen's Arrest.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citizens_arrest#United_States

It is not some little tiny exception to the law. It is available to every citizen in the USA, and goes back to the common law era. The use of force is also permitted.

I encourage you to familiarize yourself with the concept. It is simply false to say that only the government is allowed to legally use force. Citizens are allowed to use force to enforce the law.

259 On the CFPB.

What President Trump has set in motion is a battle with that fake Indian Senator whose baby the CFPB is. The head of the agency said he'd resign at the end of the month, Then over Thanksgiving appoints his Chief of staff as deputy director who will automatically be acting director then he resigned early. Trump has designated OMB head Mulvaney as acting director. This sets up two acting directors.

I'd think the sneaky way the previous head did this would undermine his choice but who knows. The whole CFPB needs to be shutdown as it is just a payoff from Fauxohantas to the biggest of big banks.

261 My disgust with the NFL pretty much began when Michael Vick got caught about the dog fighting. Several linemen defended Vick with words to the effect: "Why are people upset? They were his dogs." They were actually puzzled. They never considered that people might find the brutal death of animals for profit and amusement despicable. At that point I realized how stupid and worthless these overindulged cretins are. The NFL has been shooting itself in the foot ever since. Super Bowl 50 was the last straw and the last game I watched.

My only regret is that by the time of the take a knee BS, I had already washed the sport out of my life.

Not pissed off, but that wasn't what I said. I'm a 2A purist, and I will argue that there are situations where taking up arms against a tyrannical govt is necessary, just, right or correct. But govt is the body that is tasked with making laws, and unless it passes a "mandatory revolution" act (a most unlikely event), then using force against it (and its laws) is never a LEGAL act.

OTOH, govt is specifically empowered to use force to ensure compliance with those laws, and so it has a monopoly on the legal use of force.

You may find that tautological, and that's fine, but that was the statement I made.

Princeton issues guidelines for 'Consent on the Dance Floor'

I remember playing Spin-The-Bottle in 6th grade and being chosen to kiss some girl I couldn't stand, and who couldn't stand me. You know what we did? Nothing. Just passed on the turn. We didn't need rules or posters or hashtags.

We were apparently more adult at the age of 11 than the worthless babies at Princeton.

Do they need rules and guidelines and life coaches and directions on how to do everything? Where is the instruction manual for masturbation or wiping one's ass or tying one's shoelaces?

Part of growing up is learning how to navigate the complexities of society. And the best and fastest way to do that is to try and fail and observe and follow the leads of others and, most important, not follow the leads of others!

But this crop of elitists are sheep. They don't think for themselves, they don't observe the world around them, and they bring nothing of value to society around them.

This is not new, btw.

Many many years ago SNL mocked Antioch College after they created then-controversial "rules" on physical contact while on a date.

Antioch's guidelines were based on, get this, explicitly asking permission before making any sort of physical contact.

For instance: "May I hold your hand?"

or: "May I cup your left breast, over your shirt, with my right hand?"


I shit you not. These were Antioch Colleges "guidelines."

140 As a child, you know, before smart phones and video games etc., we played games like 'Simon Says', and 'Mother May I?' Simple games like Pick-Up Sticks, and Jacks. The result was that we learned that there were rules, and protocols, winners and losers.

Of particular note was the fact that these were self-taught, no supervision beyond your peers. It seems a small thing, but there is an absence of personal responsibility these days which seems to be absent, and some of it surely has to do with the protected, and high tech society that is evolving.

212 "Frequently checking in with your dance partner"

Well, I guess I could but calling her in the middle of the night is gonna PO her husband.

I love to dance and have been at a zillion open dances. There are always more women than men. The ladies don't care if you are any good or not, they just want to dance. While there most certainly are left-leaning folks dancing, I've never run into a SJW who is hung up on all this BS. They wouldn't show up where they might have to touch an icky man's hand.

Would you like to dance?

"Yes" - you begin to dance. At the end you say - Thank you.

- or -

"No, thank you." You move on and ask another woman.

This really isn't that hard.

213 I was taking dance lessons with a large group of people. The way it works is you rotate around so every lead is a partner with every follow at some point. One of the girls you could tell was at least somewhat feminist. She kept asking me every time I got back to her in the rotation whether it was ok to try out the dance move. I was mildly amused since I figured my first assent should last the remainder of the class. She was trying to do the polite thing though.

Funnily enough the poster doesn't mention anything about declining a dance, which can take you off guard if you aren't ready. At our weekly dance they now explain the declining process to everybody. Basically it's "don't get offended if somebody says no, and they don't owe you an explanation."

234 Some people here think Katharine Hepburn was the bees' knees and don't want to hear a thing bad about her. Please, look the other way a moment. Hepburn came from a family of rabble-rousing root-nibblers, and was way too cool for school due to her lefty connections and pretensions. Modern.

Before you place any personal trust in Uma Thurman, look into her personal and family background and consider whether she may be more of the same.

Show people are showy and gotta show. Once in a while they mouth a line that is memorable. Don't think for a moment that reflects intellect or judgement.

383 Ya know, in this information age where so much knowledge is online and free to damn near everyone, I really can't understand the rise of the socialist/communist ideas in the yutes in this country. Even just a little research will show the darkest sides of those ideologies from Stalin to Mao to Pol Pot to the Kim regime. The death toll from just those four men is staggering, yet they clamor for it. I guess the desire for free stuff from the state is greater than the possibility that they might be one of the first up against the wall facing a bullet with their name on it.

msnbc's top cuck, Hugh Hewitt, fake interviewed hillary clinton this week for his radio show.

Hugh is so proud of his pathetic interview. The questions were laughable. The answers were typical of clinton -- all lies.

I have no doubt that the "fetching Mrs Hewitt" is getting pumped by other men. Hugh is impotent and probably wears his wife's underwear.

473 Here's a longer, variant version with more bands

B: So I hear you're going to have a rock festival with the some of the big groups from the 60's and 70's.
A: I certainly am. Would you like to buy a ticket?
B: Well, depends on the bands. You got a band schedule?
Abbot: Of course I do! Guess Who's on first . . .
B: Who?
A: Not Who. Guess Who. Who's on second.
B: Wait a minute. Who's on first?
A: Guess Who.
B: Who?
A: No. They're second. Guess Who's on first.
B: That's what I'm trying to do! Look, after the first group plays and you write them a check, who gets the money?
A: No. Why should Who get the money? Guess Who gets the money!
pause
B: The band that's playing first. Who are they?
A: No, The Band is playing third. Guess Who is playing first.
B: Who?
A and B together: They're playing second!
B: Let me try again. The band plays, right?
A: Right. Of course The Band plays.
B: So who is onstage?
A: No. Why should Who be onstage if The Band is playing?
B: Who is onstage while the band is playing?
A: No, Who is backstage while The Band is playing.
B: I'm not going if you're not going to tell me who is playing.
A: You don't like them?
B: Who?
A: Most people like them.
B: Can you at least tell me which group is playing LAST?
A: Yes.
B: Who?
A: No, they're second.
B: Who is playing last?
A: No. Who is second. Yes is last.
B: Who?
A: No, Yes.
B: Do you have a contract from the band that's playing last?
A: I do. Yes.
B: So it's who?
A: No. I already told you; Who is playing second.
B: The contract is signed by who?
A: No. Why should it be signed by Who?
B: Who signs it then?
A: No, Yes signs it.
B: This is nuts! Guess Who's on first, Who is on second, the Band is on third, and Yes is on fourth!
A: You finally got it right!
B: I don't even know what I'm saying! Forget it.
A: Forget it?
B: Right. I'm not going if you won't tell me who's playing; and if you say they're playing second, I'll sock you one!
A: OK! OK! So what will you do instead of coming to the concert?
B: I think I'll go to Boston.
A: Oh. We couldn't sign them!

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

The attack was made with guns and bombs.

Children in a creche were killed.

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

68 If I recollect correct, historically sufis were most effective Muslim missionaries. Relatively easy going and open sect. Once they gain a foothold on new shores the militant sects move in and take over.

69 <i>Alawite. Not considered a sect but associated mostly with Shia.</i>

It's a little more complicated than that, though. Most Shia groups consider Alawites to be "ghulat", which in this context means, more or less, a religious group that has Islamic elements but isn't considered (by Shia) to be actually Muslim.

Under the Assads (the current one and his father), there's been a tendency in Syria for the Alawites to engage in a sort of "taqiyya" in which the Alawites act like Muslims in public and the Muslims (this is referring to the period before the civil war and ISIS, obviously) more or less leave them alone.

His is a minority sect in Syria. If the ISIS / Al Qaeda types win in Syria, they will be put up against the wall along with any other Non Sunni peoples.

Yep. islam is the formalization of desert arab culture ... and anyone can rent an arab to do pretty much anything to anyone. arabs are always available for hire to do anything or turn on anyone. The problem with arabs is that they have absolutely no concept of goodwill or obligation and will eventually turn around and stab you in the back, sometimes just because "it's that time", no matter how much you are paying or no matter how much you think you are "friends" or no matter how much you have helped them with something. That's just how arabs are. In this way the French are very much the arabs of Europe.

The fact that Muslims kill fellow Muslims just goes to show that they aren't prejudiced specifically against Christians and Jews. So knock it off with your bigoted, xenophobic whining about immigration.

Because they are not so prejudiced, you have nothing to fear about being the target of a hate crime. Therefore, it's ok to have as many of them emigrate here as possible.

To reiterate, whatever crimes they commit against you will not be hate crimes, since they also commit such crimes against their fellow Muslims.

140 You know, for the 8 years of my presidency, I funnelled billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to my fellow muslims . . . er, I mean to lovely, misunderstood muslims in various under-privileged countries around the globe. I even sent planeloads of gold and cash of various currencies to those wonderful imams who rule Iran with such benevolence. And I directed federal agencies in the U.S. to make boosting muslim self-esteem (not to mention muslim federal employment) a top priority. Why, I personally provided federal government jobs for all of the top lieutenants of the Muslim Brotherhood.

I did this to prove my thesis that terrorism (and I will not call it "Islamic terrorism," for there is no such thing, and anyway, Crusades!) can only be stopped by throwing more American money at it and by importing more muslims to the U.S. and giving them jobs and extensive welfare and other benefits here.

Now I know that many of you racist clingers and haters and islamophobes who post here are going to point out that nothing that I did actually stopped or even slowed terrorism, and some of you are going to point out that terrorist activities actually increased under my presidency, but I have an answer for that: The only reason that my solution did not work is because we did not spend enough money!

176 Here we see selective breeding in action. Moderate Muslims are being culled so that the only ones remaining are callous, violent sociopaths. And this has been going on for over a thousand years.

As I mentioned a few threads ago, William Lane Craig relies on Al-Ghazali, an 11th century Sufi philosopher, for his cosmological argument. Muslim culture since then seems to have devolved ever closer to barbarism. It showed feeble signs of secularization last century, but again that got smothered.

I don't like believing that a cultural group is hopeless, but because of their sacred texts, they keep reverting back to the ISIS end of the spectrum.

Among a lot of things I liked about it was how it defied my expectations of the drone pilots. They're always portrayed as armchair warriors playing a nintendo game half a world away and pushing buttons as if the life and death at the other end weren't real.

The drone pilots in that movie were tormented all the way through and absolutely shattered at the end. As if they were really making life and death choices.

253 Energy-Saving LED Lighting Has Backfired in a Spectacular Way


I agree about the light pollution part. It's getting harder and harder to stargaze in an urban area. I could join the local astronomical society who has a dark site, but it's sixty miles one way from the house.
Posted by: Old Blue
------------

I don't have a way of direct measure of the difference in illumination, but when the city installed LED streetlamps, the difference seemed about 2x. I'm betting that there is a square law involved, so actual 'brightness' may be even greater. At any rate, the reflected light is *much* higher than it was.

I haven't checked, but it is rumored that the lamps exceed what is allowed to private resident lighting. That statute was put in place to 'reduce light pollution', but the city itself is exempt.

Additionally, regarding color temperature/spectrum, the LEDs clearly are quite different than the mercury vapor lamps. The LED's, for instance, do not attract moths, and, whereas there was noticeable additional growth by the plants under the mercury vapor lamps, things planted since then show no particular additional growth. All of that is to say that the spectrum of light from LEDs simply isn't very natural.

The Sexual Harassment Apocalypse... Why Now?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

------

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

"Hillary Clinton is part of the problem."

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

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

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

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

Also,

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

...is a great quote.

And let's not forget:

1997

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

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

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

16 The reason this is happening now is because they want to use the came charges to impeach Trump. Plain and simple.

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

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

Some things never change.

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

Religion may have exposed HRC to an SJW mindset and later education reinforced, or at least did not contradict, it.

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

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

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

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

I think that's a component of it, but why take out Weinstein? OK, he was a Hillarhoid, but he was also a major bundler for the Dems.

And why take out Orestes at PBS, or Franken? How does torching them have any bearing on Hillary?

64 To me it's just this simple:

Feminists, Democratic Women, Leftist Chicks hung their entire feminist agenda on on putrid vile horrendous thing--infanticide by tortuous dismemberment for the sake of convenience. This was a big fat honking signal to male sleaze bags that as long as they supported infanticide by tortuous dismemberment (Which suited them just fine, BTW, because who wants to pay support for some whore's kid, amirite??) , they could pretty much do whatever they wanted to those women--including rape, and any other vile debased behavior that suited their sick fancies.

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

Especially so, given the ever-expanding wildfire of incredulity and doubt emanating from and about his erstwhile "accusers".

I'm picturing Moore walking into the Senate, backed by a phalanx of Alabama State Troopers, and taking that seat whether McTurtle likes it or not.

It'd make for a cool movie script, too.

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

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

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

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

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

But it would be much worse.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My family - which is highly attuned to politics - thought I was crazy, and that Trump would be blown out. I didn't think that that was true. I thought he may not win, but then again he may, and in case he wouldn't be blown out.

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

Fun fact:
Methodists in America have been jonesing to move leftwards for decades and follow in the Episcopal Church's footsteps. The problem is, that they have a democratic polity, and their evangelism in Africa was so successful that large numbers of African Methodists actually believe what the bible says, and resist American efforts to pervert the religion.

Hillary most certainly is the most clueless candidate I've ever seen. She focused her pitch on women, virtually to the exclusion of men, thereby throwing away half of the electorate.



Agreed.

126 Yep. That was beautiful. Hillary started in on Trump re women, and
Trump stuck the entire issue right up her ass by going after Bill. It
was the last time she brought it up.
.
.
.Which explains why Trump won. They still don't understand that he refuses to play by their rules. Like it or not but Trump calls them as he sees them and he fights back dirty just like the dems do.

Everyone was ooohing and aahing that Trump lost the war with the this nfl protest thing, but look where we are at now, the nfl is dying and that took just a few short months and Trump was responsible for calling them out on it.

They still don't get it.

And he was right about statues. Notice that bullshit died down?

127 Why now? very very simple...

The Clinton's no longer run the Left.

As long as Bill and Hilary were politically powerful, they could NOT go after Sexual Her Assers at all... thus they enabled DEMOCRAT Her Assers to prosper...

Now however... the gloves are off because they no longer have to protect Bill and Hill...

128 From the linked Clinton timeline:

Dec. 31: On New Year's Eve, Lewinsky spoke to the president in his private dining room. She reminded him of her name because she had the impression he had forgotten it in the intervening six weeks. They then have their third sexual encounter.

Hilarious!

That was one of those watershed moments in politics. Funny you should mention that as I was thinking recently that was the actual moment when the tide turned. Democrats saw they could no longer get away with their former sexual transgressions.

The tide turned at that moment, but Trump winning was the tide that took the water over the banks.

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

========

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

144 And if she hadn't kept that blue dress (which was later used as the basis for a DNA test), the Clintons would be lying about Bill's many and various schtuppings TO THIS DAY.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

I asked Cmdr Browning for clarification and he said, "You know, looks." I replied, "no sir, I don't know, can you demonstrate the forbidden sexually harassing method of looking?" To which he explained, "Shut up, Farmer."

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

That wasn't the point I was making. But yes, I agree the fact that Bill Clinton had a pattern of hitting on women around him was a key point. But I never saw any evidence that what he did with Monica was actual harassment of a sexual nature. Because she said 'Yes' to his overtures.

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

Without the blue dress and the advice to keep it safe, Monica is just another dead intern in DC. Remember that there was another one and she was making noise about going off the reservation. Boom, she's dead. Her name was Mary Caitrin Mahoney and she died in a robbery where no money was taken.

213 Liberals don't turn on themselves without a reason. What we are witnessing is nothing more than the shaping of the 2020 battlefield. The narrative of widespread oppression of women is being set. Thus, when the Dems nominate a woman in 2020, the media can present her as a figure that represents all women in their struggle against sexual abusers, aka Donald J. Trump.

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

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

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

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

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

2. Racism hoaxes (I lost count of all of them)

Why now?

Mostly because Frau Gruppencankles did the election faceplant.

I think that these victims have wanted to take down these assholes for a LONG time now. But since a lot of the predators were Clinton-connected, there was a reluctance, partly because of the power involved but also because it would seriously impact Hillary's career path by reminding the public about Bill's crimes. Remember, most of these victims are good little Hollywood leftists, and true believers. I think they were willing to stay silent in order to protect Hillary by keeping sexual harassment by lefty icons out of the spotlight.

Once her political career was essentially over, there was little reason for the victims to stay silent. And after Harvey was destroyed, things just snowballed. There's no one on the left that's high-ranking enough to protect in the same way that they protected Hillary.

218 For those saying that Lewinsky wasn't harassed because she was a voluntary participant, the paradigm has always been that in a situation of disparate power, the person with less authority can't honestly consent.

For a while in the early 00's we had to watch the same stupid sexual harassment videos every year. They finally laid off when everyone started making fun of the ridiculous scenarios.

219 You don't want to talk about it, you don't want to hear about it, and it's Just Plain Wrong, but the totally mobilized and mobile work force of WWII had a major effect on sexual mores, and we have both the "war widow" birthrate stats and the VD films to bear that out.

Of course if you were a teenager in the 60's it seemed like the world was all about sex, either what you were doing or what other people were doing that bothered you. But this was also a major topic of discussion, with sociological commentary, in the 50's, in the 40's, the 20s, the 1890's. Frankly, the world has always been going to shit.

223 So on the Methodist Church thing, you are trying to tell me the Progressives must infiltrate, control, then destroy every organization they come in contact with? Same thing happened with Catholic Church in most of Central and South America. The lure of socialism/communism to the progressive liberal priests in the church created a culture in the parish that was at first accepting, then ultimately supporting the destructions of freedoms, both financial and political.
The one thing that any Christian Church should preach/teach is that NO ONE can save themselves. But a friendlier, nicer sounding message is that even though no one single person can SAVE themselves, somehow a big group can.

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

I wish it was so, but it is not. Just as the explanation over at the bookworm is in error.

One must not fall into the trap of thinking that leftist are like us because we are all human. The leftist does not think the same was us or any non-political person. The are first and last leftists in everything. They will use any method, legal or illegal, moral or immoral to advance their march to power. Nothing matters to the leftist but the march to power and once obtained maintaining power.

It is why I believe they love the necessary proper clause of the Constitution. In essence, the clause states that let the end be legitimate, then any all means to achieve that end are proper. In the case of the Constitution, the end must be a Constitutional end, but for the leftist, the end is the march to and/or seizure maintenance of power.

This outing and feeding frenzy concerning the DNC gropers is about the march to power and clearing away those people impeding the march. If a few DNC gropers who are not impeding the march get caught up in the clearing away, so what. All that matters is the Clinton machine and its loyalists are swept away as the leftist continue to assault Trump.

Notice how hard the leftists are protecting Al "tiny hands" Franken. He has use for the march to power and the assault on Trump. And so we see the Bill Clinton defense tactics employed, such as using women to say he is a good guy, asserting that he is an advocate for women then throwing him into a meaningless ethics panel. No DNC leftist is calling for his ouster.

This country and its bedrock institutions, the family, religion, patriotism, the Constitution, etc. are constantly under assault by the left. They are always chipping away, eroding the foundation on their march to power. They use any means possible to divide us and to persuade us top compromise our mores, our laws, our selves.

I refer to them as the powers of darkness, for that is what they spread. The wish to turn all of us into slaves toiling for a small minority. They wish to return to a time before people believed "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, . . ."

I think the book by Donna Brazile and the rest mentioned above is part of a whole new force sweeping the decks of the left.

With the Clinton Crime Family, the Hollywood cartel was a major source of funding for the DNC/left.

What if the new boss has no need? What if they are self-funded? What if the tech oligarchs are planning on getting overtly political? They would have no need of funding. In fact, they would blow a bridge (Hollywood funding) they have no intention or need of using. The landscape is clear for an Apple/Microsoft/Google/Facebook Wunderkind to step into the field and face a decimated left.

Didn't the Washington Post start this thing rolling? Who owns that piece of fishwrap now?

227 Why now? Because the crazies who believe we're a "rape culture" think they're strong enough now that they can purge Hollywood of all non-SJWs, and charging sexual harassment may very well achieve that.

I'm hoping this whole campaign will backfire, at least to the extent of teaching some lefties the hard way that due process (including a statute of limitations short enough to make it possible to defend oneself) matters. If we're lucky, we can also get the cultural warfare (no jokes/innuendo/"locker room atmosphere") part of the sexual harassment law rolled back, preferably in a way that the next Democratic administration won't be able to undo.

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I asked what they do about waste water treatment:

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

OK, what about air pollution?

"The smoke stack is 50 meters high".

90 Best part of GAINZZZ is when you successfully add weight and/or reps. After all that work to get there, the sense of accomplishment is worth it!

I remember thinking I would NEVER be able to do those crunches where you're hanging upside down almost vertically. I'd watch these young guns doing it at the gym and think, well, I'll never be doing that! Never say never.

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

Posted by: bluebell


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

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

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

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

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

We used WD40 liberally to get the others out.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

160 Gumdrop Gorilla -

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Excellent Stossel video.
And yeah - he's too libertarian for my tastes too. (He fails to recognize the real damage that legalizing recreational drugs - yes, including my favorite, alcohol - does to society and society's right to outlaw such damaging commerce.)

However, I don't really feel that Stossel is exactly "childish" in his presentations. It's more that his tone of presentation is a bit "golly-gosh-gumbucks, can't you see the truth here". But counterbalancing that Pollyanna tone are multiple trump cards in the form of compelling demonstrations of irrefutable results that usually dispostively prove the larger point he is making.

And this, his Thanksgiving "special" video, is a powerful example of exactly that.
Can't wait to show this too my Bernie Sanders supporting finance.

The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Crickets.

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

Surely this is obvious.

Interesting comment.

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

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

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

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

This is one of the most basic refutations of Marx.

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

Posted by: booknlass

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

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

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

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

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

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

179 As always, Robert Heinlein summarized it brilliantly in Star Ship Troopers.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

230 Hm, interesting story from the UK Guardian. George Takei has been dropped from his job with several media companies because of the story he drugged and molested some guy.

Now, I don't like Takei and think he's a jackwagon, but I also don't like people being basically fired for some person's accusation without any evidence, from decades ago.

But that's not the real story here. When you dig deeper you find...

He was being paid to tweet things. Or, at least, whoever runs his twitter account.

233 Deroy Murdock has a lengthy article up at National Review (which I will not link, but WZ has some quotes from it), listing the many conservative accomplishments of PDJT to date. He ends with this:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And with the exception of Nintendo almost all consoles are sold at a loss for an extended period of their life cycle.

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

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

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

Don't get me going on Carried Interest.

She has some ideal of what a parent OUGHT to be and the real ones don't measure up. But at the same time she seems to be overly concerned about the parents' approval of her. I dunno.

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

295 Yeah, I got fake Rolex Submariner for $100 in the
09's. Thing looked awesome. The only giveaway on the fakes is the quartz
movement.



I was thinking of those Apple smart-ass watches or whatever they were.



I mean, a Rolex President is like what $14k. And it's just a watch.

To me a wristwatch is just an appliance that you wear on your wrist so you can tell time and date. For my purposes, a twenty-dollar Timex gets the job done as well as a $6000 Rolex. My watch stays on my arm when I'm elbow deep in the guts of some car I'm working on, so there's no point in me having several grand worth of watch at risk of damage, is there?

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But I get the cynicism. I have it too.

13 Willowed:

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

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

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

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

I guess it's Goodell 1 Jones 0.

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

64 Good morning, Horde! That tavern looks like our Thanksgiving, except the House is smaller and some of the relatives are in NC.

I slept in until nine and am enjoying my second cup of coffee before facing my To-Do list. My left shoulder is sore from doing niece-and-nephew powerlifts. Evidently I my Gainz in the last year cannot compensate for the 15-pound gainzz of my youngest buddy, who is now walking around tables. Little Chunker.

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

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

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

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

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

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

180 Been looking at a wonderful book which FenSpouse took out of the library, "Sister Wendy's 1000 Masterpieces" in which she comments on 1000 of the greatest works of Western Art. So many interesting choices-many I had never seen or heard of before. She really pays attention to the artwork and notices things I would never have noticed. I also think it's interesting that studying art works is part of her devotional life as a contemplative nun. I recommend this work highly to those interested in art. You can get hours of pleasure from the book.

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

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

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

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

The Morning Report 11/24/17

PDTCG.jpg

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

7 On the Flynn BS


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



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Emergency challah FTW!

Now the bread loving teenage boy has tasted it and I see more loaves in my future.

64 From Front Page Mag, we have this gem:

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

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

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

I'm glad to see Morrissey's become at least semi-red pilled. An apology for the appalling "Margaret on the Guillotine" would be nice but I won't hold my breath.

72 I wonder who was playing for them when I saw them in '73' at the HIC in Honolulu.
I have never kept up with band members/players. Probably not more than 4 or 5 bands I could tell you all the members in them.
Let's see,, The Beatles, LZ, The Doors and um,,, then there's umm...
Maybe another cup of coffee will help.

73 I see the latest is that Flynn is going to toss Trump under the bus for some unspecified crime(s) in a plea bargain deal. Desperation, thy name is the msm.

74 Sorry spypeach. I know how difficult that is. we were actually talking about that yesterday. I have never had a Thanksgiving without my two youngest here. Oldest daughter lives in NM so have only her here once. Did have one Christmas without my youngest daughter and I just felt empty inside. We did Skype that day but it wasn't the same.

I can name every one of the legion of players who've passed through the YES ranks along with years and albums/tours played on, even down to the likes of Igor Khoroshev and Billy Sherwood. I need help.

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

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

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