The Morning Rant

"Ahoy, maties! If I be th' GOP, I be tryin' t' keep Hillary on th' radar as much as possible. Shiver me timbers! 'cause ye know wha' Americans wants right now aft a bitter 'n contentious election be MOAR HILLARY ALL THE TIME! Arrrrrr!"

Happy Talk Like A Pirate Day to all!


hillary - ive lost and cant shut up.jpg


This has already been mentioned in the comments, but I have to highlight it here: Trump is knocking it out of the park at the U.N. today. Here is the best line from his speech:

"Venezuela has failed not because socialism has been badly implemented but because it's been faithfully implemented"

This is a line that's going to be remembered for a long time. Which is why the alt left is beside itself with impotent rage.

From yesterday's Rant:

104 Funny to see Pittsburgh mentioned. My 17yo daughter is a HS senior this year, and was considering University of Pittsburgh for college. I've never been to Pittsburgh, and I know absolutely nothing about it. Does anyone have a real opinion about that campus? How worried should I be about my daughter going there?

30 President Trump is being everything I voted for amd more at the UN.

The video I watched had altered the coloring so that his skin looked almost cherry red. The left is both loathsome and sophomoric. They are resorting to desperate tactics to male him appear less presidential.

31 Here's all that quote that doesn't sound too much like (paraphrasing) "the only problem with the UN is its bureaucracy needs fixing"...

The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly
implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented. From
the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or
communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and
failure.

Those who preach the tenets of these discredited
ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who
live under these cruel systems. America stands with every person living
under a brutal regime. Our respect for sovereignty is also a call for
action. All people deserve a government that cares for their safety,
their interests and their well-being, including their prosperity.

34 That is a good line by Trump, who doesn't usually go in for quotable lines in his speeches. Must be a new writer. He's a bit erratic and daffy in his extemporaneous stuff (still gripping and effective, but odd). But when he has a prepared speech he knocks it out of the park.

Yes; My husband locked me in a 8 x 10 windowless room and fed me on bread and water until I agreed to vote for Trump. I lost weight-which was a good thing-but gained it back after he let me out.

The truth is I was the one who convinced my registered Democrat Husband not to vote for Obama either time, and my husband was perfectly happy not to vote for Hillary. He really did not and does not like her personality and he thinks she's a crook, and having a wife in the ministry he thinks Hillary would make a terrible minister. No people skills.

95 67 Mother Teresa is what liberals think of themselves. Ok. But Mother Teresa is the very essence of Christianity, so the Liberals see themselves as very devout, pious Christians?


No, I'm sure if progressives really wanted to use Mother Theresa as their champion, they would explain how she was a true progressive and had actually denounced Christianity, but had to work under the guise of a Christian organization because of misogyny or some shit.

I did convince my husband not to vote for Obama the first time because I just spend more time learning about politics than he does and I knew more about Obama than he did. The second time my husband said "Obama's done nothing good" and came to the conclusion on his own not to vote for him. My husband came from a blue collar union family so I think he just voted Democratic reflectively. I came from a white collar academic family so I just voted Democrat rather reflexively too.

Just do those and major in something interesting. Med schools are looking for interesting people who show a commitment to medicine. She should find some kind of work in the medical field to show she has an interest. I was on a Med school selection committee. The pre Med majors who simply shadowed a doctor a couple of times went into the "meh" pile. An Art major who worked as a medical assistant or pharmacy tech got an interview.

"Me too. I always wondered if the Church was "Reformed' from Catholicism, or Reformed from the Church that split from Catholicism... "

Luther split first, Calvin just a little bit after (as soon as he realized Luther was getting away with it) and they started to argue with each other almost immediately. Somehow Calvinism is the one that managed to grab the "Reformed" label and hold onto it, but it's all quite confusing.

I always thought it was a bit amusing to note that John Calvin was, in actual fact, a Frenchman from Picardy named Jehan Cauvin.

182 Thanks. I was under the impression that the formly stern Presbyterians had gone the way of the Episcopalians and Methodists.

The PCUSA is the more liberals branch. The P Church in America is more conservative or maybe it's vice versa. The Conservative Episcopal have basically joined the African Anglican church. Methodists go from very liberal to quite conservative depending on the church and as they have a huge number of Methodists abroad their General conference still votes more conservatively.

212 Robots - see the term "The Frosen Chosen"

Even the Presbyterians themselves admit they fit the description.

A visitor came to a presby church, sat in the back, started listening to the sermon. Pastor preached a good line, the man shouted out "AMEN!!!" Everyone fidgeted nervously.

Another good line came down, the man shouted "AMEN! AMEN!!!" Most of the congregation now glared at him.

He was inspired for a third time, and stood up while he shouted "PREACH ON, BROTHER!!!" That was too much, and an usher walked over to tell him to please keep his outbursts to himself. The man protested, "But I can't! I got religion, man, I got religion!"

And the Usher replied, "well we don't care what you got, you didn't get it here!"

219 I always thought the Protestant Reformation was the Protestant break away from the Catholic Church and a rejection of the rituals and the wealth the Church had accumulated.

Although the practices of the Reformed churches varied from Roman Catholic, that was not due to intent but consequence. The split was over basic theological issues of salvation, the Bible, sovereignty of God, etc. That resulted in simpler worship services without a lot of the trappings of the old church.

A number of years ago, I ran into a site that compared the end times teachings of Catholics (maybe Christians, I can't remember) vs the end times teachings of Islam.

It was scary insofar that point by point, the description of the Anti-Christ is also the description of the Mahdi, the savior of Islam.

Add into that:
-OK to rape children and babies
-OK kill gays
-OK to kill daughters for being raped

Yeah but Henry the 8th had nothing to do with the protestant reformation. He was just politically annoyed with the Pope's refusal to go along with his serial monogamy and England always has been pretty independent.

The Anglican Church was just the Roman Catholic church with a new name for a quite a few years. It was only later that reformed theologians and preachers managed to change the church and move it toward protestantism.

Yes, but not one in which I'm going to pound the Bible and unfriend people on Facebook over. I tend to stay away from those arguments here. I think if we all acted as one in Christ, the world would see us as one. If anyone doesn't think I'm orthodox Christian enough (small o, not Eastern Orthodox) that's their issue not mine. "I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that he is able" which are words from one of our hymns. :^)

259 It was scary insofar that point by point, the description of the Anti-Christ is also the description of the Mahdi, the savior of Islam.
Add into that:
-OK to rape children and babies
-OK kill gays
-OK to kill daughters for being raped
-OK to beat women
-OK to eff animals
-OK to behead non-believers

267 No; A Marxist would say
With respect, effectively nobody is a doctrinaire Marxist in all respects, and Marxist (like socialist) tends to describe a mode of thinking found in collectivist beliefs more so than a complete system of thinking. The closest thing to a doctrinaire Marxist to be found today is usually *not* an industrialist, for example.

The key feature of the Marxist strain, phenotype, whatever you want to call it in thought is the concept of class struggle, oppressor vs. oppressed, evil rich vs. deserving poor, and the restructuring of all human conflict to reflect this divide and the power systems it involves, with collectivism advanced as the only solution.

Modern Liberal Christianity-in-name-only fits this to a T.

Well, its more they see them selves as being super charitable, helping the poor and doing good in the world, the ultimate good works sort.

Yes, they see themselves as being super charitable, etc but they think all this charity and helping the poor should be done by taking from the "rich" and giving it to the "poor" or by the government doing all this by using my and your tax money. On a individual basis they are not much into their own personable charitable giving of THEIR time or money to help others.

286 the big thing I see in the chart is how "group think" shoves people into those categories.

Individuals have direct access to God through JC their brother/advocate/savior. The veil in the temple was rent/torn for top to bottom. JC our high priest forever. No more middle men, every person must study to show themselves approved unto God.

Their are ministries and all that, church structure a good concept and kinda works. But church dogma should never be above the individual's personal study/revelation/development. (imo)

Decades ago I used to go door to door ... the vast majority don't even know their own doctrine very well, far fewer spend much time studying to develop their own view. The horde is mostly an exception to that ... thinkers, willing to reject a Marxist pope agenda (though on doctrine I guess are somewhat more accepting of papal (what used to be) infallibility).

Anyway, I view it as parallel to the founder's concept of government ... the individual retains his own sovereign choice, determined directly between him and God. Various denominations claim to be the one true one, and the tribe/gang mentality has power/advantage. Self-reliance within that is challenging.

Posted by: Donna and V (sans ampersands at the present time)


Methodists don't have a conservative alternative to UMC. But just about all the other mainlines have split into liberal and conservative sub-denominations:

Lutheran: ELCA (lib), LCMS or WELS (conservative)
Presbyterian: PCUSA (lib), PCA/OPC/EPC (conservative)
Anglican: Episcopalian (lib), ACNA (conservative)

The SBC (conservative) is the largest protestant denomination, but there are liberal versions of Baptists out there (ABCUSA).

Charismatics don't really have a conservative/liberal divide. Instead you have Assemblies of God, which is conservative, and then you have heretical movements (oneness Pentecostals) and charlatans (Benny Hinn).

356 Its interesting because the original term that the reformers used to describe themselves was "evangelical." Evangael is the root of that word, and it means "gospel," that's what the reformers were most concerned about and focused on, that's what they wanted to be known for. The doing and dying of Jesus Christ.

Calvin would have been very upset about having anyone call themselves "Calvinist." Luther would have thrown a beer mug at someone calling themselves "Lutheran."

418 Believe it or not, you can still find conservative, Bible-believing churches in the PCUSA even now. They're like islands of sanity surrounded by rot

Compounding the trouble is the fact that the PCUSA, IIRC, effectively "nationalized" many or most churches to the central ownership of the church. So, you may have a little church somewhere that would like to stay more orthodox but are still pretty liberal, populated by some old folks who aren't all in on Oneness sermons and rainbow flags - and they can't go anywhere. If they in their local church rebel, they get turfed out of the building - with no option to buy or work out an arrangement because "fuck 'em".

Evil on stilts, and PCUSA recognized practice at this point.

426 369 339 Christianity gets into its worst problems when it is led by culture instead of being a beacon of light for culture to follow. Trying to "fit in" or "be modern" always causes a downfall for the church. Trying to run things or be in charge does as well.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at September 19, 2017 12:32 PM (39g3+)




Yes.
It also gets in trouble by focusing on morality vs. the supernatural presence of Christ and his offer of help, power & love in a diseased, corrupted culture & world. Once someone becomes a Christ follower, morality comes into pic, but leading with condemnation & moral scoldings is not exactly offering the love and blessings of Christ. JMO

Posted by: Chris M


She needs to take a full year of Organic Chemistry in college, if she wants to go to Medical School. Whatever she majors in, she really needs to take that. If she doesn't, it's likely a deal breaker. Same thing for Veterinary school.
And she needs to get no lower grade than a "B" in O Chem to get in. This is a course that all Med Schools use as a metric to look at applicants.
They will also need O Chem for Biochemistry, which is a first year Med School course.

I never wanted to go to Med School, but a plethora of my friends did. That was a big difference about who got accepted and who didn't.

Why does the government punish the self employed?

My dad was self employed, as am I. We not only have to pay estimated taxes, but get absolutely effed by health insurance. It's worse now that it's ever been.

Why does the government want to discourage people from being their own bosses and taking control of their own life? Why don't they at least level the playing field? I'm not asking for anything special, just the same sort of deal that others get. Or at least something reasonably close.

I don't believe Trump presented himself as a "thinking" man nor did he represent rational efficiency the way, say, Romney did.
I'd say that the choice was between two feeling candidates, one genuine and one bogus. Emotion-based women rejected Hilary because they saw her (correctly) as a cold, robotic fake. She didn't really feeeel.

One of my favorite things ever was-

the time Kos, who was convinced that he would reign as THE VOICE OF THE LEFT for evah and evah.

Tried to get "Atheistic Progtard Churches" going-

to counter the influence of the eeeeeevil Christians.

He really pushed that idea for a while.

It still makes me laugh just thinking about it.


Atheist Churches is a bit like Ghey Marriage.

It kinda defeats the purpose of the whole thing-

the whole point of being gay is the (except for AIDS and STDs in general) consequence free sex with whomever strikes your fancy.

That's one, well maybe the main reason pretty much every all late period Elton John songs reference "freedom" and "talk one way or another about how family is a drag". Actually, he was doing that even as early as "Tumbleweed Connection".

Anyway I think I may have crossed streams here.

I think love of country and countrymen had a lot to do with it, too. Hillary made it known that she hated half of the country. It was supposed to be innocent virtue signaling and guilt-tripping.

Trump might think there are stupid people out there, but he loves them because they're his countrymen. And, like a dad, he calls them out because he loves them.

I've said it before, but I've never once doubted Trump's love and concern for the nation as a whole. That continues to go a long way with me.

I could have gotten over her clueless insults to Wynette Pugh, who, on her own talent and hard work, became an international success, as opposed to a Clinton's advantages (including coattailing her successful husband), even if I never would have voted for her in this dimension or galaxy.
But to then bake cookies anyway? And snark about it in sulky superior fashion?

Reaching For The Moon
Maxfield Parrish (maybe not...it could be an Edward Eggleston)

The old argument (the one in my head) rears its ugly head...is this graphic design or is this art? Perhaps when Parrish was working it was an easy answer, but today, with incredible software and lightning-fast computers it's not so clear. There are numerous examples of amazing "art" that were created on a PC using off-the-shelf software.

For those of you who prefer real art, here is something for you that should be less taxing on your artistic aesthetic.

46 Art is composition and skill. Traditionally learning the skill also meant you learned composition on the way through.

With photoshop and other tools the skill is easier, it comes in a box with instructions, but the composition and the eye for what is "familiar enough to be understood but enough off what is expected to be interesting" still has to be learned and practiced.

I do wonder if Dada was an attempt to shed that measured avant-garde vision of the impressionists.

Sort of the way Punk was supposed to be a revolution against the top 40 vision of the whole "give us something new and exciting, but not too new and not too raw, and make it 2 minutes and 47 seconds and make it catchy"

I like Parrish, but some of his stuff seems remote. He liked landscapes with trees and craggy rocks and quiet houses and snow, but hated painting trees with snow on them.

I like Much better, but that might be the bewbs.

Anyway, he was a genius with color - the reason for Orange is that it's the complementary color to the Royal Blue in the background. Your eye knows it's right even when your intellect doesn't quite grasp it.

59 The purpose of some of Parrish's paintings may be illustration, like Wyeth, but I regard them as art. In the case of Parrish, I absolutely love his use of color as well as his subjects. The neo-classical (my designation) subjects are so successful in the effect they create. The more stylized, fairy tale paintings are both fun, close to the words they portray, and can show a sense of humor or whimsy.

If his works aren't art, they will do until the real thing shows up.

It can be both, but I don't believe that all graphic art is "art", just like all painting is not art, or all sculpture, etc. To me, something has to meet specific guidelines before I'll consider it ART. I also believe that there are ranks in art--that something is more of an artform that another. But my definition of art is different than someone else's. No one has the authority to dictate what is Art and what isn't to someone else.

72 The way I see it (and my son is a Graphic Designer), Graphic Design is merely "applied art." As my son said while getting his degree at an art school, "I'm in the Graphic Design program, you know, the one where you actually make money." I think that by the common definition, anything is "Art" if it is made for "art's sake" as they say. The medium is irrelevant.

81 I loves me some art nouveau. On the more "what is art?" sort of topic: graphic design is commercial art is art. I mean, that was literally Andy Warhol's whole point. It was easy to get lost in the pretense and pettifogging, but the core message was really, really simple. "This soup can (and arrangements thereof) is a really fucking good-looking soup can. It has artistic merit." "This picture of Marilyn Monroe is a pleasing balance of shapes - it's a good photo because it's a good structure because IT IS ART".

Raymond Loewy is well recognized, but unsung as an artist - but is his kind of extremely brilliant arrangement of shapes and colors to provoke emotion that different than Rothko? Only because he made it to be reproduced.

On a related note, concept art is the great invisible realm of surrealism of our day. Went to a panel at Dragon Con hosted by Stephan Martiniere - fascinating stuff.

133 "74 I've seen a lot of hood ornaments based on this print. Or is it the other way around?"

You're probably thinking of "Nellie in her Nightie" aka "The Spirit of Ecstasy", which has been placed on most Rolls Royce models since 1911. (and subsequently copied by other auto makers hoping to get in on some of the RR cachet)

It wasn't sculpted by Parrish, but both artists were working at the same time and reflected the Edwardian aesthetic. The model for the sculpture, Eleanor Velasco Thornton, was the mistress of Lord Montagu, an early Rolls enthusiast.

It seems there's always a sad ending to stories of that era, and Ms. Thornton was killed in 1915 when the ship she was on was sunk by a German U-Boat.

W's work was pretty good early on. He seemed to have potential, but then he plateaued. He started to do bland portraits of political figures from pictures he found in the news. Don't get me wrong, I think portraiture a can make great art (see Rembrandt). But he is painting what he wants and enjoys it, so good for him.

Jackson Pollock is the Yoko Ono of the painting world.

Posted by: naturalfake at September 19, 2017 09:53 AM (9q7Dl)


I have a pet theory that Jackson Pollock borrowed his paintings from nature. Specifically granite. I've seen actual granite stone that looks just like one of his paintings. They even 'named' the stone on the tag, 'Pollock'. With a price tag of $50,000 for an approx 7 foot by 10 foot piece.

It has to be seen to be believed.

145 For the Horde's edification, a brief bio of the actual artist and a link where you can see more:

Edward Mason Eggleston was born in Ashtabula Ohio on November 22, 1882. He attended Columbus, Ohio Art School and studied under Harvey Dunn former student of Howard Pyle.

Most of his career was spent in New York. He had a successful career as a commercial artist was a member of the Advertising Club of New York as well as Society of Illustrators. He painted calendars for the Thomas Murphy Co. and Joseph C. Hoover and son as well as Brown and Bigelow. As a genre his works included many Indian maidens along with Arabian. Egyptian and pirate girls.

He died on Jan. 14, 1941 at age 58.

It's amazing how many students misunderstand what this means. Many think that a painting can mean anything the viewer wants because they say so. A sculpture about peace and healing can be about oppression and division because reasons.

Truly amazing stuff occurring over billions of years and under incredible pressure. I would suggest art lovers take a look.

I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw the Pollock stone and said, 'Pollock'. The clerk said, 'Look at the name on the tag'. It was like 'Pollock - Tier 21' or something like that. When the budget allows Tier 3 or 4 it was totally out of our budget.

There was also a 'Van Gogh' stone that had all of the brilliant colors of 'Starry Night'. Once again, a $50,000 stone.

233 It's graphic art. It's beautiful graphic art, but nothing more.

My personal, highly-scientific test for whether it's graphic art vs fine art: Would it look good as a 70s/80s rock band album cover?
Posted by: red speck at September 19, 2017 10:11 AM (6Krd7)


There's a line to be drawn, somewhere in there, between what gets created by the artist, and what is the work of the tools he uses.

I used to do some stuff with photoshop years ago, and got pretty good with it. If you give me a paintbrush and a slab of canvas, no matter how long I dabbed at it, no art would be brought.

So when considering music, if I pick up an electric guitar, I could... could mind you (I can't right now) with some basic training make stuff that sounds not dissimilar to the so-called greats of the rock era.

Is that art? Do their hands create it, or the instruments they use, and where is the line between the two?

The Brooke Baldwin mammary mess is just another example of how liberals leverage their ability to create new rules out of thin air as a means of asserting their power over us normals. What was A-OK yesterday is now forbidden, and what was forbidden yesterday is now mandatory. Their goal is to keep our heads spinning and paralyze us with fear, like nearsighted corporals caught in a minefield and terrified that if we take one wrong step we will detonate a concealed wrongthink booby-trap. They want us living in fear of their fussy wrath, and that is precisely why it is so important for us to keep abreast of pseudo-scandals like this so we can nip these libfascists' schemes in the bud and deny them the ability to rack up yet another victory in the culture war.

You can make cases for and against the UN as an institution, how much money they should get, what strings we should attach, all that's fine. But does the physical headquarters have to be in Actual F'ing New York City? Why not Geneva, or Paris, or Vienna, or London, or Milan, or even San Francisco or Vancouver?

But does the physical headquarters have to be in Actual F'ing New York City? Why not Geneva, or Paris, or Vienna, or London, or Milan, or even San Francisco or Vancouver?

And that's even if a big city is necessary.

382 The whole 'what is art' question is one of those that can lead you into the weeds very easily.

One definition is that anything that evokes a reaction in the viewer is art, but that opens up crap like Jackson Pollock and computer-generated art (no human interaction apart from the coding) into the realm of 'art'.

Another definition requires craft and work, which might leave out some modern computer generated art.

It's all ultimately subjective. Which is kinda frustrating.

Also, I love Maxfield Parrish.

424 To ask whether a concrete object or collection of objects is or is not Art seems to be a poorly formed question.

"Art" isn't really a category that a noun can belong to or not belong to. Like saying is this red, or is this 50kg, or is this conductive. It is a purely perceived kind of thing, more of a process or an action. I base this off the following train of thought: As soon as the question "Is this Art?" began to be seriously asked (mid to late 19th century?), it became obvious that there is no rigorous and universal definition of what Art actually is. Art is obvious when not questioned. When questioned, it becomes nebulous.

473 It isn't graphic design. Commercial art would be more accurate. That said, there's nothing wrong with pleasing commercial art or graphic design. Some of it is quite beautiful and innovative.

Fun fact: M. C. Escher bridled at being called 'Maestro' or 'Master'. He did not consider himself a fine artist and said as much any time he was asked. Escher considered himself a graphic artist, a commercial illustrator. I personally never understood this, especially since he also produced little wooden sculptures, perfect little objects that rival most (if not all) contemporary sculptures in terms of aesthetic quality.

So what's the distinction between fine and commercial art? I guess it's about theme and intent, the effect the artist is striving to achieve. I know it when I see it.

510 UN has a lot of tyrants that treat their people as slave-capital, as opposed to the kinder phrase "human-capital". They come to the UN to make deals with people like Hillary that enable them to move their ill gotten money into the banking system. (Hillary did that big time for various african goons).

So Trump is teaching them "let your people go" free. That is not why they come to the UN, they come for graft and globalist positioning to better leverage their tyrannical power.

The US plays the game to try to manage the nations of the world, to offer them "free trade" if they help US. But somehow China always gets in the middle of those deals, and they have co-opted all those trade advantages while still being human abusers and enabling Nork nukes.

TPP supposedly advances our ties to some Asian countries, but China has its hands all over those transactions. And at the root, Democrats ARE commies and grifters, so they sell us out gladly. (see Clinton and chinagate, uranium one, skolkovo etc)

Our multi-nationals also sought profit over country, and loved countries with slaves, no pollution laws, and that cheat. Mutual Fund America has tied their portfolio to said globalist players. Long road to unwind it.

It costs hundreds of billions of dollars a year, and accomplishes almost nothing. Its filled with people who talk but have nothing to say. Its purpose is to stop tyranny and war, and has failed almost every single year of its existence. It has bodies meant to combat certain evils, consisting of people who do or represent groups that carry out those very evils. Its troops have no power to fight, its aid workers prey on the very people they are supposed to be assisting, and its membership blithely violates the laws of the host country while demanding special treatment.

Its almost perfect as an illustration of the left. If anyone would pay attention.

Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems.

The Morning Report 9/19/17

EvitaPelosi.jpg

Good morning kids. Today marks the one year anniversary of The Morning Report. I'd like to say that it's been more than a pleasure; it's been an inconvenience. In all seriousness, just wanted to say thanks for making this entertaining. And I'm honored to be allowed to contribute to what I think is the best political/cultural commentary and real news outlet anywhere. Thanks to Ace for the keys and the cob's for the support. Enough of that. We are loaded with linkage this Tuesday so let us commence. First up, Hurricane Maria is threatening Puerto Rico so if we do have an Morons down there, please evacuate or otherwise get to safety.

Top story is PDT's assertion that Obama used the FBI to wiretap him before the election has been confirmed. This includes conversation(s) between him and one-time campaign honcho Paul Manafort who, surprise! may be Scooter Libby-ed by Robert Mueller's kangaroo court. I really wish PDT would just end this friggin' shitshow and get rid of Mueller. And Rod Rosenstein while he's at it. That snake is a Deep State embed/saboteur sneaking whoopee cushions under Deputy Dawg's daybed.

The president is at the UN this week for its annual America/Israel-bashing and shakedown session. This time, however we have a real president who by all indications is going to read the riot act to the Farsis and Whoa, Fat!. On the down side, he seems to be falling into the Mideast Peace processor. Well, this is what happens when you get rid of the realists like Gorka and let the McMustards have your ear. Meh, maybe he's just mouthing platitudes but I don't see that as his style.

In news from the insurrection, Nancy "Different Strokes" Pelosi had to flee her own press conference when the illegal aliens she and her party have used as weapons to destroy us turned their aim on her. It's funny to see frauds like Pelosi who are always controlling these media Potemkin Village pseudo-events look like total fools when they blow up in their faces. They have no one to blame but themselves. After almost two years of portraying Donald Trump as "literally Hitler" the mindless droogs look at Pelosi and Schumer dealing with him as a stab in the back. Good. And with Comrade Bernie threatening to run in 2020 as an independent Commie, anything that divides the dividers is a good thing. Too bad we have no political party to take advantage of that.

In other news, James O'Keefe is teasing a huge expose of the MFM that will result in people getting fired. He and his group do yeoman's work in opening peoples' eyes to what the hell this country has devolved into. Investors Business Daily is cautiously optimistic about the latest block-grant Obamacare repeal/replace but fears that Murkowski might sabotage it at the last minute. There's a very interesting piece about the reaction a lefty writer gets for penning an essay called "The Case For Colonialism" and finally, Toys "R" Us is filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy. That is a huge deal vis a vis e-commerce and the trend in retail, not to mention the fate of over 60,000 employees.

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

    I have been saying this since the original debt/CR deal. Don't assume that Trump is getting snookered by these guys. Consider the possibility that he snookered them.

    They normalized him. Which helps Trump.

    ."The report said the secret court that handles the Foreign Intelligence

    This had nothing to do with Trump or the campaign because he wasn't even running yet. Something stinks on ice here.

    It's a trap! They were setting Trump up for surveillance when they reopened the investigation after they had previously closed it due to lack of evidence.

    32 I don't get the expressions of dismay when Trump lets us down. Did people not expect that? Mind you, I'm not anti-Trump (certainly not #NeverTrump - I don't like self-absorbed assholes), but I do find it hard to understand that some deeply believe(d) in him. That trick never works. Even Washington, Lincoln, and Churchill let their side down sometimes. (Personally, I fit somewhere in the Schlicter-Hanson-Kimball zone of "he's all we got.")

    That said, what I expected was being let down on policy, and to some extent, personnel. But I am a bit baffled by the continued presence of the likes of Mueller and Rosenstein, et al. The fact that Koskinen is still in, and Gorka is out, is not encouraging.

    They're upset because the DACA amnesty that is being talked about won't include all the other illegal alien family members, like the parents who either illegally smuggled the DACA "kids" into the U.S., or who paid drug cartels to smuggle them in.

You are all living illegally in this country, you cost U.S. taxpayers far more than you contribute, and you obviously have a nasty attitude of entitlement, as demonstrated by your behavior at this press conference.

    It is where many of us start our day.....though if Deputy Dawg does not wake up, seize control of DOJ and investigate Felonias' various felonies I fear, seriously, that you may need to clear your content with editors(censors) of the State.

    Yea, Trump got elected but I don't see him doing ANY thing to construct a seawall to protect his loyal subjects and voters from the supperession of speech after the Donald leaves the scene....e.g. Establishment of an aggressive First Amendment Section of DOJ and going after Campus Inc and their current Nazi tactics. ..

    He went from "come on in, everybody is welcome in Canada" to "hey, we don't want any economic migrants here, and anybody else who comes here must obey our immigration laws."

    All that bullshit about how "diversity is our strength" suddenly doesn't feel so good when thousands of poor, unemployed and unskilled Haitians are streaming across Justin's border, trying to replace their American welfare payments with Canadian welfare payments. Or when carloads full of sketchy-looking middle eastern types are strolling across the border, with vague claims of trouble in their homelands.

    Damnit! I was just reading an account yesterday that said the merchant vessel make a hard turn to starboard ten minutes before the collision, and the Fitzgerald was hit on the starboard side. This means the Fitzgerald was crossing ahead of the merchant vessel. The merchant vessel turning to starboard put the two ships on a collision course.

    In a crossing situation, you normally would alter course to pass astern of the crossing ship, or slow and allow the crossing vessel to clear your path.

    The one account where I read this is being buried by news reports that make no mention of the merchant ship altering course to starboard, and my google fu won't bring it up again. The Fitzgerald was clear ahead and the merchant vessel caused the collision, if that one account is true.

    126 I lay a good portion of the blame for Mueller's Star Chamber witch hunt campaign at the feet of Sessions. Him recusing himself threw the floodgates open for the human sewage that is Mueller and his coterie of Clintonite turds to run amok. However, Trump should've shut this clown show down by now, although I sort of understand the politics of not having done so.

    This is why I take a neutral view of what Trump is doing right now. He came out the gates at a full sprint, and they have used all the weapons at their disposal to slow him down.

    They've laid gloves on him. He's wounded and hurting, but still fighting. I don't trust anyone who has been in Washington more than, say five years. Anyone there that long is part of the machine, and they control so much of it, it's impossible for Trump to change any of it by himself, especially when his greatest tactical error seems to have been allowing them to surround him with their own plants.

    So that might be the fella who goes to work wearing his boy pants, then goes home at night and "becomes" a girl, and on any given night when he/she/it is prowling, can take on whichever gender it so chooses.

    We shouldn't tell them. Then they'll change tactics to make themselves appear more palatable to the American people.

    Remember the last amnesty go-round, when the illegals were marching in the streets with their Mexican and El Salvadoran flags? Americans didn't like it. Here were hordes of illegal aliens, who for years had been living illegally in the U.S. and taking advantage of American taxpayers, and now they were marching in our streets demanding that their lawlessness be rewarded with even more rights and privileges, while waving their foreign flags in our faces.

    La Raza saw that the optics were hurting the illegals' cause, so they sent out the memo to carry only U.S. flags going forward. However, you still always saw at least one or two foreign flags in every march; some of the illegals are so deeply hostile to the U.S. that they won't obey their handlers, even when it's clear that it's doing injury to their cause.

    So I say let these a-holes show America how entitled they feel. Keep making those threats, amigo!

    Well hell, rig fenders and come along side.

    What I am about to say is not to be taken as insult, but a sharing of my experiences and viewpoints from a little over thirty years in a Sea Duty intensive rate, much like BM is.

    When Minimum Manning collided with the beginnings of the social experimenting which was being dictated from above, it began to pull at the professional training which knit the seagoing Navy into one of the most professional Navies in the world.

    As technological advances which looked over the shoulder of, and kept a Nav Team out of trouble became the relied upon route, instead of a back up, things began to go south.

    When the training day became more about Military Rights, instead of Military Rights and Responsibilities, it continued south.

    When the events in 7th Fleet leading to the Fat Leonard investigation became known, it was a clear indicator of a leadership chain which had slipped its moral moorings, and was dangerously adrift.

    I am sad to say that absolutely nothing which you, or I experienced in past years compares to the climate today.

    The funny part is that a lot of feminists hate M-to-F trannies because they're intruding on the female privilege they've constructed for themselves but dare not admit to. This actually has a term now: TERF for Trans-Exclusive Radical Feminist.

    In return, the trannies hate feminists for being vag-centric because "not all women have one" etc etc.

    .There were actually had Schools for that stuff back in the day. Way back when not everyone who came in was assigned a Rate and a School. About one third of the Navy Enlisted intake was non designated and they went to Apprentice Training after Boot Camp. They were split into three groups, Seaman, Fireman and Airman.

    IIRC is was three or four weeks on the basics.

    For the SN it was basic shipboard stuff like watch standing, Damage Control and fire fighting. For the FN it was Black Gang stuff and for the Airman it was all about the flight deck.

    They went to the Fleet with at least the basics to survive and actually be somewhat productive.

    203 " Seamanship is not hard as a subject, just as a discipline. "

    You hit it on the head with the comment about being a discipline.

    A lot of these young Sailors come out of GLakes, and training ready to succeed.

    They don't know what they lack, but are for the most part, highly motivated, and blindly trust those who are placed in their Chain of Command to be likewise.

    But when complacency, and long term exhaustion sets in, only discipline prevents one from accepting short cuts, because nothing bad has happened so far.

    We learned many a lesson by paying the price of blood and lives in the past.
    And unfortunately, some of those lessons are coming up for renewal.

    They do more than that, unless you consider things like sex-segregated bathrooms and sports a privilege.

    TERFs are feminists who are still coherent enough to see how transgenders eliminate everything feminism established (back when there were still legit battles, not whining about mansplaining). If anyone who puts on a dress, or heck, simply says, "Today, right now, I identify as a woman!" = a woman than there is no value of being a woman, no real distinction.

    They did this to themselves - feminism wanted to blur these distinctions, worked hard to devalue what makes women ub=nique (childbearing) and this is the unfortunate result. Sad.

IT'S A PRESIDENT WHO FAILS TO ACT ON CLIMATE CHANGE."

    How sensitive to the people who had loved ones die or lose their homes!. Then the ad says "It's science and talky about Trump pulling out of the Paris accord." Because gee- being in the Paris accord would have stopped Harvey and Irma.

    260 The Colonialism dust-up is pretty interesting.

    I had a discussion with someone along a similar line about nothing in particular. Essentially I asked my friend, at what point are you far enough away from an issue that it is acceptable to discuss it from a purely objective position and at what point are the ramifications of a particular action truly realized.

    Of course the spark for this conversation had a bit to do with the retrospective views of historical landmarks/statues and their villification, but the same mentality can be applied to simple ideas and discussions as well.

    I pondered that, in spite of slavery's overwhelmingly negative ramifications, would there ever come a time when anthropologists would be able to measure the the impact of slavery in any other fashion other than the negative impacts without being burned at the stake. Will it ever be possible to study the advancement of African culture and modernism as an unintended positive impact of slavery and its subsequent abolition.

    As an example, a dissertation might study the economic and life expectancy of the descendants of slaves in America compared to those whose genealogy was left untouched by slavery as a population study.

    Of course we both laughed at the notion that one could ever publish such a paper without receiving public and social admonishment and enjoyed another glass of George Dickel 12 year.

    While we are all bemoaning the traitorous obstructionism of the GOP and how it could lead to doom in 2018, the bigger news to me is the disintegration of the Democrat Party. The radical and now violent and openly espoused anti-Americanism of its cadres and constituents understands that all this time they were essentially political props to be used and discarded by the likes of Pelosi and Schumer. Those chickens are now "woke" and coming home to roost.

    266 I just saw an ad for Vegas where some woman is fantasizing about what she did there which included a hook up with guy she just met. Her friends can see her thoughts, and then she shuts the thoughts down and there's the famous headline "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" If i had any money and could go. I would like to meet the Horde people there but I've loathe that marketing thing in which a lack of moral responsibility is encouraged because supposedly nobody will ever know.

Because GT's police can't respond to any provocation with lethal force, despite the fact that about three blocks away from there, somebody I came to know was shot and nearly killed during my time there. Despite west campus being right up against some really fucked portions of Atlanta.

    Now, name one story of a impending scandal or a rumor they've published about Trump that's proven out.

    There isn't one.

    That was a planted story by Mueller:
    1) In an attempt to flush out (what they think is prey)
    2) In an attempt to keep the lie alive (and justify their continuance)

    That's it.

    Not one damned person put their name out--on the record--as saying there's grounds for indictment.

    No, all it is is a lie planted with the NYT, they then repeat the lie to "experts" hostile to Trump, who freely expand and expand upon the lie, dressing up the facade until we get to the leftie wet dream of a frog march.

    How do I know?

    Read the first paragraph.
    Drug dealers, convicted drug dealers, have gotten better press at the NYT.

    And--scour the article from top to bottom--no crime, no actual crime whatsoever, is even alleged.

    Let's parse that:

    bisexual- likes both sexes

    nonbinary- doesn't think there are two sexes

    (Hmmm...)

    Intersex is defined by Webster's as "relating to or denoting a person or animal that has both male and female sex organs or other sexual characteristics"

    I suspect that a boy named Scott who called himself Scout did not have both male and female sex organs (a very, very, very small subset of the general population).

    320 "312 307 Or maybe they just want to make someone go to jail, and they'll take him and maybe another Trump backer. But looking at all the unmasking and surveillance on Team Trump, and all the Team Hillary crimes being washed away with immunity and obstruction (by the Deep State itself) ... the US is in deep trouble, evidenced by being powerless to stop the witch hunt by Dem operatives."

    The United States hardly is in a position to lecture other nations about democracy. If there even was a semblance of Rule of Law left on these shores, Mueller would be arrested immediately for insurrection and Comey and Hillary would die in prison. As it is, all will be "writing" books and receiving money from their Deep State benefactors until the country implodes or one slips up and says something out of bounds and justice is administered by the bad guys.

    326 Intersex is defined by Webster's as "relating to or denoting a person or animal that has both male and female sex organs or other sexual characteristics"

    I suspect that a boy named Scott who called himself Scout did not have both male and female sex organs (a very, very, very small subset of the general population).

    327 "Damnit! I was just reading an account yesterday that said the merchant vessel make a hard turn to starboard ten minutes before the collision, and the Fitzgerald was hit on the starboard side."

    I saw something to that effect too - BUT - apparently the evidence for that comes from the radar tracking of the ship. Problem: the exact timing of everything is still in question, so it's possible the sharp course change happened BECAUSE of the collision, and not before the collision. In which case it is meaningless.

    I don't know, apparently nobody knows, unless they have access to the Navy's on board records. You know those showed what went wrong instantly.

    329 I just saw an ad for Vegas where some woman is fantasizing about what she did there which included a hook up with guy she just met. Her friends can see her thoughts, and then she shuts the thoughts down and there's the famous headline "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" If i had any money and could go. I would like to meet the Horde people there but I've loathe that marketing thing in which a lack of moral responsibility is encouraged because supposedly nobody will ever know.

    Honestly, having been to Vegas on more than one occasion, the reputation exceeds it and Vegas tourism does everything it can to perpetuate that mystique.

    I generally believe most people's Vegas tales to run parallel to fishermen's stories, barstool golf handicaps, high freshmen boys sexual exploit stories and servers discussing their tips with each other. Which is to say, they are rather exaggerated.

    The Strip is truly a modern wonder of entertainment and can definitely be enjoyed for purer purposes. I would say, however, that if you don't enjoy a cocktail and a little blackjack that there are vastly superior destinations.

    330 The story about "Scout" the non-binary, whatever student at GA Tech who wanted to go out by cop suicide, is pathetic. Seems the parents when along with xis lunacy and xe ("they" he preferred) had attempted suicide twice before. Xe called 911 and said their was someone roaming campus with a knife and a gun. Left two suicide notes in xis room.

    And of course, the usual progs turn out to burn and riot.

    The ONT has never seen this in any of Sunday's Food Threads. And it is doubtful that Weasel and Bluebell will have this recipe in their cook book (cough, cough). So The ONT brings you Weed gummies recipe.

    Once you’ve mastered the basics of cooking with marijuana, like making weed butter or baking pot brownies, it’s time to move onto advanced techniques. Weed gummies are a popular choice because they fit in a little bag, they’re delicious, and their small size makes dosing a breeze.

    This is only for you Morons where the weed stuff is legal. Don't be making illegal gummies otherwise.

    The ONT Musical Interlude


    September 18, 1970, Jimi Hendrix was pronounced dead on arrival at St. Mary Abbot's Hospital in London at the age of 27 after choking on his own vomit. Hendrix left the message 'I need help bad man', on his managers answer phone earlier that night. Rumors and conspiracy theories grew up around Hendrix’s death. Eric Burdon claimed Jimi had committed suicide, but that’s contradicted by reports that he was in a good frame of mind. In 2009, a former Animals roadie published a book claiming that Jimi’s manager had admitted to him that he arranged the murder of Hendrix, since the guitarist wanted out of his contract. via thisdayinmusic.com

    The Green Revolution, saving the world from global warming and weaning us from our addiction of fossil fuels. But, can we really run a modern society on green power alone?

    For instance, in Europe, the practical wind energy potential for electricity production on- and off-shore is estimated to be at least 30,000 TWh per year, or ten times the annual electricity demand. [1] In the USA, the technical solar power potential is estimated to be 400,000 TWh, or 100 times the annual electricity demand. [2]

    Such statements, although theoretically correct, are highly problematic in practice. This is because they are based on annual averages of renewable energy production, and do not address the highly variable and uncertain character of wind and solar energy.

    Comedian Ron White once said, "You can't fix stupid." Is he right? 50% of Americans don't know that free speech is a guaranteed right.

    It’s been roughly 230 years since the American Constitution first debuted. Unfortunately, that length of time doesn’t seem to have solidified its presence in the American mind. In fact, many Americans cannot even name the most famous element of its First Amendment.

    According to a recent survey published by the Annenberg Public Policy Center, more than a third of Americans are unable to name any of the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment. Freedom of speech is one of these rights. Yet while knowing this right seems like a simple and obvious matter, only 48 percent of Americans are familiar with it.

    The US Flag on Dan's shirt has 11 stripes.

    Yes. Eleven stripes.

    -

    I noticed it all by my lonesome. When Dan walked into the bar I thought 'That flag looks off' It was more rectangular with the Blue field than square. That looks better if you're a graphic designer, but - hey - it's not accurate.

    So I paused the video and counted.

    Sure enough.

I like the idea where if they see the fixing flat scenario or come on a scene that they would check out anyway and see someone trying to help, they would give a ticket. It can't possibly hurt to have some pleasant dialogue.

    Posted by: RM at September 18, 2017 10:45 PM (eP+dt)

    122 For me, the concern would be if they're pulling people over to give them the "good" tickets. The example they cited wouldn't bother me - coming across someone who stopped to help someone else change a flat. But, I don't want any cops pulling me over to give me any kind of citation, even a good one. I got better things to do and I don't need the stress.

    130 Nothing new and exciting in good ol' Omaha. We're going through the usual change of seasons gyrations. Cold and clammy today. Hot and humid tomorrow and Wednesday. Thursday, cold and clammy again. Friday and Saturday, hot and humid. No matter what you start out wearing in the morning you change completely again during the afternoon, and sometimes again in the evening just to survive.

    Forgot. There is something affecting the entire state. Nebraska got stomped for the second week in a row. Right now, I'm thinking it wasn't such a bad idea to close last year. From what little I catch on the radio and in the newspaper, the entire state is going to be pouting through at least Thanksgiving, which means everyone sits at home and doesn't spend a penny. Nebraska believes the National Championship is their God-given right, and they throw massive tantrums when thwarted.

When they do, they'll just keep digging anyways. They have more money than sense which will keep them stumbling along, stupid and vain.

    I can't remember if it flopped or not... though I have a vague recollection that it did ok, but not gangbusters. I like the film, don't love it or anything, but it's a weird, interesting flick with a good cast and was different.


    I agree with you... how the fuck does a remake make any sense? It's a strange flick done in a style that is unusual and very "of it's time". I don't know what the hell they're thinking with this, other than... Hollywood = remakes. Maybe they're thinkingthat it's "culty" enough to remake, but not well known enough so most people won't notice that it's a remake, or something/ Dunno.

    Which reminds me:


    THE 2017 EVENT IS CANCELLED

    Our non-profit, the World Punkin Chunkin Association, a 100% volunteer based group, has recently come under litigation regarding the incident where Ms. Suzanne Dakessian, a Sharp Entertainment’s employee, was involved in an unfortunate accident at our 2016 event. The pending lawsuit lists our non-profit and its officers as Defendants.

    The landowners who graciously donate the use of their property each year for our non-profit endeavors are also listed as Defendants. They are reluctant to host our 2017 event in light of the lawsuit.

    With less than 74 days until our event, we are left with no options. It is with our deepest regrets that we announce that 2017 Punkin Chunkin is canceled and with it, the economic impact that Delaware receives, the funds that we generate to help fund other non-profits and the scholarships for deserving youth. Refunds will be issued within the week.

    It is unfortunate that Suzanne Dakessian was injured, and we continue to extend our best wishes to her, her family and her loved ones. We have no further comment at this time.

    Sometimes they work on the books using stolen SSNs. I suspect the only taxes they "pay" are the ones withheld from their paychecks, meaning their employer is actually paying them.

    406 Of course same is true for many medicines and medical items, kept in
    proper conditions. The "expiration date" stuff is extremely
    conservative, at best, to pretty much meaningless, as in the case of
    most food items. Not all of course, but many.

    Which led to some hilarious situations back when US pharma companies were donating huge amounts of "late dated" medical stuff for use in US assistance programs to the former Soviet republics (and to Russia itself), in the years right after the break-up.

    The Russkis and former Soviets first had to have the entire concept of "expiration date" explained to them. After which they immediately had to have the irrelevance of this, in many cases, explained to them.

    Then they had to be convinced that we weren't dumping bad/dangerous stuff on them. And they got huffy.

    Kind of classic, really. If one isn't already acutely aware of a lot of the stupid s**t that burdens American life, needlessly, dealing with furriners and explaining everything to them really brings it to life.

    Posted by: rhomboid at September 19, 2017 12:22 AM (QDnY+)

    407

    That's true with most drugs -- in the pill form. They'll last well beyond the expiration date. The military did some study, and most drugs would keep near their full potency for 10 years or better.

    Some exception was tetracycline antibiotics, the whole family. There is some concern they will break down into something toxic, and 3 years in the maximum. But that may not be true for modern manufacturing processes, but it's still a big thing they warn about.

    Now, that's different with some medicines in liquid form, which can loose potency quickly, but pills are good for a long time.

Oh, and the hollowing out of core American values and constitutions by such abominations as affirmative action.

    The medicines I referred to above in the post-Soviet aid programs were generally everyday OTC stuff, like tylenol and ibuprofen. Very stable.

    We did a crap-ton of immunization assistance, too, and in those cases of course everything was done by SOP for vaccines.

    442 Still, almost all food manufacturers do micro testing on most products (at least for big corporations- liability.) We did testing on everything even though our product was around 3.4 (and not many food borne pathogens can live at that high an acidity.)

    It is fun to read the news if you have a background in food quality. One recently was a listeria contamination on some product. Listeria is pretty much only found in cooked prepared foods if they have a roof leak which contaminates the product after cooking (you can find plate counts on it from standing water sometimes.) So the first thing when I hear a listeria contamination of say, peanut butter is: "Fix the damn roof!"

    Yeah, I'm missing the "I must have a baby gene" and instead got the "you need to go to Japan gene." Pretty sure that threat would not have worked at all on me, and Mom was pretty low drama, so I doubt she would have been excessively upset.

    I'm thinking I would have gone along with it if we could easily remove/ sell said ovaries and then go on an awesome vacation in Japan.

Yeah, I was able to resell some of them right up until the moment she became the tallest girl in school and just kept growing.

    451 Speaking of expiration dates, most of the 7.62X54R ammo I have (Russki, Romanian, Bulgarian) is from the early 80s. But the spam cans are wonderful. A loud hiss when you break into them. Have never had a bad round - in, let me think about this, maybe 2,500 that I've shot? Oldest I've shot was some 1946 Russian. No problem.

    Powder can deteriorate, even in loaded ammo. But there's usually some external indication (I always eyeball surplus rounds before use - actually sort of examine all rounds to some extent).

    I may sell of a bit of the stash, as I expect some day I'll reload (pretty easy to add calibers when you already reload).

    459 Well, looks like I will be hitting the road tomorrow to make my way to the GNAMM. Looked for fuel leaks on the 'burban this morning, and it seems to be the mechanical lift pump was leaking and/or failed. So I simply bypassed, and ran a hose direct from the fuel line at the frame rail up to the filter on the firewall. So the electric pump under the floor will be my full-time pump. And the glow plug controller didn't kick in this morning, so I installed a Ford-style starter solenoid to bypass that controlled by a push button the dash. Of course once that little job was done, the glow plug controller worked just fine. Go figure.

    But the 'burb did the return trip from here to Calgary just fine, call it a shakedown cruise, and it never missed a beat.

    467 I'm a big fan of the radio show Hollywood 360. They play a lot of old radio dramas. They used to talk about modern movie releases, but they dropped that in favor of more old radio shows.

    The show starts at midnight on Saturday night (or Sunday morning, depending on how you look at it) in my market, so it's common for me to drift in and out of sleep while listening to it (as well as the also-terrific Eric Metaxas Show, which follows it at 3 am).

    Anyway... recently, I woke up during the show to hear some amazing singing. A guy with a rich and soulful voice, singing some sad old-timey song, really pushing out that mournful regret and making me feel it, too. I'm thinking, "Why have I never heard this guy before? He's amazing! I need to stay awake and find out who he is."

    A few minutes later, the original announcer of the old-timey show piped up, and now I knew why I'd never heard that singer before. It was Al Jolson!

    The visuals of his act may be offensive to our delicate modern sensibilities, but, man, he was a fantastic singer!

    I guess I shouldn't be so surprised by this discovery. There had to be some reason the guy was so incredibly popular back in the day, and I don't think it's because people liked watching whities prance around with shoe polish on their faces.

    488 I had a terrific roast chicken in Cozumel once, where some dude was grilling them up in front of the hut where he lived and charging, like, $2 for them.

    My teacher (it was a school trip) told me, "You know, that chicken you're eating was walking around in the yard this morning."

    Yes, I'm sure it was. And it was delicious!

He invested in (bought) Ampex, getting into tape recording before almost anyone. He was almost single-handedly responsible for modern (1960s) music.

    But speaking of immunization prudence, make sure you and Resident Evil get the DPT - not the DT - booster next time you're due.

    DPT was for youngin's only, most of our adult lives. But .... since "P" has made a come-back, for reasons shrouded in mystery (much as the motivation for most terror attacks remains inscrutable), best to go back in time and get the DPT. Had a funny/sad discussion with the nurse last time I got the DPT, about the backward time-travel we were witnessing due to *mumble mumble* mass illegal migration - and she had blood-boiling stories too about the fact-fudging and dishonesty she'd seen in hitherto dependable public health stuff, all of it naturally to avoid mentioning a particular issue.

    Something else. Sitting next to Doris was Carol Wayne, who's playing the ditzy blonde bimbo to the hilt, who up and says she doesn't like animals.

    And further she doesn't want anything to lick her that isn't going to marry her.

    Doris does not appreciate that too much. The fun starts a bit after the 11:10 mark.

    585 So Trump Tower was in fact wire tapped. At least Manafort's office in the Tower was, and at a time when he was in face in frequent communication with PDT.

    And the MSM reports it as "government" wire tapping, carefully omitting the fact that it was Obama and his minions who were in fact spying on a political adversary. Headlines should read, "Obama wire tapped Trump."

    But nothing will happen. Hundreds of hearings will continue to be held on this and all of the other various Obama/democrat criminal activities. And that's that. Hearings.

    No, I don't think we could.

    The Right is a too loosely connected group of individuals to be able to coordinate something like that effectively.

    The Left could do it.
    The tend to run a more centralized form of party alignment and action.

    And pretty much anything that the right might do on a physical level to reflect an intellectual statement would be lost on the majority of the left.

    Not a lot of deep thinkers, nor studiers of history in that group.

    616 I'm not much of a tweeter, but I do follow Paul Joseph Watson and Pamela Geller on Twitter. It's incredible how many "minor" terrorist attacks they report on that are completely ignored by the media here and abroad. Hundreds of acid attacks in London, hammer attack on women (both still critical,) knife attack on French soldiers, numerous rapes in England, Sweden, etc.

    e.g.: Just today, two Afghan "asylum seekers" arrested for a brutal rape of a 16 yo German girl on a city street in a Bavarian town just south of Munich. A third was arrested for attempted rape--seems he was interrupted by a passer-by.

    387 111 OT: Is this "Vietnam" thing worth watching? Or is it typical Ken Burns?

    Posted by: tu3031 at September 18, 2017 07:50 PM (O5Q3r)
    ---

    From a friend:

    This is Fred Koster, the Director of Ride the Thunder. Below is an extremely important and urgent update. The "final battle" in how the Vietnam War will be remembered in history, will happen late this year when Ken Burns releases his 18 hour Vietnam War documentary (which has been endorsed by John Kerry) and Steven Spielberg HUGE new movie release on the Pentagon Papers starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep. Now is the time to take action against these films, there are "no" tomorrows if we don't challenge them now.

    Below are some important points about the Burns show preview.

    No mention of communism, the left always did their best to convince the American people that we were fighting the Vietnamese not that we were fighting with the Vietnamese against communism.

    No mention of the Soviet Union or Chinese involvement.

    No mention of any type of victory or heroics of the Americans or South Vietnamese.

    No mention of the South Vietnamese people (they do not want to recognize South Vietnam).

    No mention of the communist atrocities.

    No mention of the 250,000 boat people who died in the ocean trying escape.

    No mention of the millions of refugees.

    No mention of our ally- the Hmong people.

    The continued propaganda that we were fighting the Vietnamese not communism.

    How incredible and wonderful Vietnam is now under communism. It looks like an advertisement.

    Emphasis on the struggle of the North Vietnamese and how brave they were.

    The show opens with an USA air bombardment of the North then the misleading statement that the war was fought both in the north and the south.

    An incredible horrible scene of a Viet Cong soldier describing how our soldiers were weeping about their killed companions.

    One of the main music composers of the film is Chinese.

    A good portion of this preview is about the music yet they have no time to show the South Vietnamese or the valor of our troops.

    There is much more.
