Quote of The Day

Washington, D.C.
October 3, 1863

By the President of the United States of America.

A Proclamation.

The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the Eighty-eighth.

By the President: Abraham Lincoln

William H. Seward,
Secretary of State

The true story of Thanksgiving.

*****

Tomorrow, when you don't want to watch the NFL, check out this classic episode of WKRP in Cincinnati.


Don't have time to watch the entire episode?


*****


In case you wanted to drop a turkey or two out of a plane. It's legal for now.

The annual, reasonably disgraceful tradition of an “anonymous” pilot dropping live turkeys from hundreds of feet in the air in Yellville, Arkansas, continued this fall, with several birds dropped on Oct. 14. The FAA said then they were looking into it, but it conceded to HuffPost on Saturday that there was nothing they could do to stop it.

Officials say the event, which is known locally as the “turkey drop,” is out of their control, because the pilot doesn’t appear to be breaking any state or local laws. The FAA told HuffPost they examined their own statutes relating to the matter and came to the same conclusion.

Types.
Deletes.

Never mind.

*****

What will be a point of contention at the Dinner Table tomorrow? Trump/Clinton, Bears/Packers, Yankees/Red Sox? Green Beans, fruit or vegetable?

Whether you love them or want to eradicate them from the Earth, you'll probably see green beans on your Thanksgiving table this year.

And since you can't avoid them, you may as well impress your relatives with this fun bean fact: the green bean is actually not a vegetable, but a fruit.

At least to a botanist, anyway.

As long as they have Campbell's Golden Mushroom Soup and a boat load of French's French Fried Onions on them I really don't care.

*****


Are you entertaining tomorrow? Are you feeding the gang turkey? How to carve that bird.

*****

In just a few short hours Black Friday will be here. Need some extra cash for those presents?

4. Donate a Testicle. The payout for this is $35,000

On a episode of “Extreme Cheapskates “a Las Vegas man figured out a way to make some money by signing up for medical trials. He saved himself more than $750. That inspired him to take it one step further. Most recently he also agreed to donate one of his testicles. But they didn’t just leave him hanging. They replaced it with an artificial one and paid him $35,000. It was reported that he used the money to purchase a Nissan 370 Z.

Thanksgiving and other holiday dinners often include alcohol. How to set the mood.

The desired mood of your Thanksgiving meal should determine what type of alcohol you serve: red wine for a sleepy, relaxed atmosphere or spirits for a sexy, confident air. That's the conclusion of a new survey analyzing how different types of alcohol make people feel. The reasons behind the feelings aren't fully understood, but researchers say there are clear trends in the emotions certain alcoholic beverages brought out in 30,000 people, aged 18 to 34, from 21 countries. For example, more than 60% said red wine made them feel sleepy, while 53% said it made them feel relaxed, reports the Guardian. Similarly, nearly 60% of participants said spirits made them feel confident and energetic, while 42% said spirits made them feel sexy.

Let me guess, puking up a 12 pack on your host's shoes is not a good idea?


*****


Do you have a nap planned for tomorrow? Don't blame it on the turkey.

Here’s the lowdown: turkey contains the amino acid L-tryptophan, which produces sleep-promoting serotonin and melatonin. But turkey has about the same amount of tryptophan as other meats. It may even have a built-in secret weapon against sleepiness: an abundance of protein, which can regulate insulin levels and actually combat fatigue. So don’t blame the turkey for your tiredness; the heavy load of carbs that made up the rest of the meal are likely the culprits. Here’s what turkey really does to your body.

If anybody is interested I just created a userscript for acecomments.mu.nu to remove or replace characters that will make pixy blow up, rather than looking through a pasted text again and again to try to see the hiding special character.

Not sure how I should distribute it. Does anybody have any ideas?

Arkansas has no laws on the books regarding cruelty to animals? I would think that dropping semi-flightless birds from a plane, where 2 out of the 12 dies on impact with the water, would constitute cruelty.

Posted by: bluebell at November 22, 2017 09:56 PM (UoSKV)

Were you absent that day?

They had split up because he finally came out of the closet. (First thing I said to my husband the day we met them was 'That guy is gay'.) This guy was really wealthy. Owns the Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn here in this town...along with various other hotels around the midwest, apartment buildings and a couple of restaurants.

Anywho...his gay lover asked him to meet him at a seedy hotel down the hwy from here. He did and it was either outright murder or sexual asphyxiation gone wrong.

So the lover calls a friend to ask him to 'help him with something' and goes to pick up the friend. While driving back to the seedy hotel he tells the friend he killed, let's call him 'Mike'. They go to the store and get tarps and cleaning supplies. Go to the apt. Mike was living in and take all his watches and some credit cards that were there. Go back to the seedy hotel and wrap 'Mike's' body in the tarp and put in back of Mike's Porsche SUV. While driving around trying to decide where they're going to hide the body, a cop pulls up behind them for something like a tail light being out. They proceed to tear ass down the hwy., get off on an exit, drive through someone's yard, through a fence and hit a tree. The two get out and run. 'Friend' was caught right away. Cop took him back to the car and went to look in the SUV...'Mike's' body was wrapped in a tarp in the back.
Took the cops a couple more hours to find the other guy.

Still both in prison awaiting trial...although the killer did try to escape prison by diggin with.a.spoon.

I know that sometimes days and remembering can be hard. The older we get, the more we sometimes seem to carry with us. Sometimes we would like to put it all down. The best friend I ever had or will likely ever have died just last year at this time from a heart attack. Remembering is hard.

I hope you have a happy day tomorrow. You have not been forgotten.

The wife was at the airport in St. Louis when the cops called her.

I happened to be outside with my dogs when the youngest child (about 9) was brought home from where ever he was. He went in the house, came back out a few minutes later. Jumped on his bike and just road around and around their property. There was a male friend of maybe his grandfather out there just watching him. It was so sad.

There will be ten of us.

I think we've got desert pretty well covered.

78 I happened to be outside with my dogs when the youngest child (about 9) was brought home from where ever he was. He went in the house, came back out a few minutes later. Jumped on his bike and just road around and around their property. There was a male friend of maybe his grandfather out there just watching him. It was so sad.

The plane wasn't that high - clearly there was no danger the turkeys could get sucked into a jet's engine. Also, would you rather live in a country where people are free to carry on this harmless tradition? This reminds me of the story about the Canadian man who was banned for life from attending hockey games simply because he continued a time honored tradition (I think also ~50 years) of throwing an octopus onto the rink.

I'll make sweet potatoes, but I am the only one who eats 'em.. so a bit of dark meat, a big helping of dressing, some sweet potatoes and a ton of gravy, and I am good to go.

So.. tonight I made a whole pan of turkey necks just for me and my wife.. OMG were they good! 3 hours in a 350 degree oven with only salt/pepper and butter.. dayumn good! For those of you who have never partaken in turkey necks.. you must some day try them..

We're hosting 3/4 of our family, and this is wife of a little over one years first time meeting most of my family. (We live half a nation away from them).

Being of Italian descent, she has let her inner Dago freak flag fly creating Italian food for the feast, which of course includes all the traditional stuff.

Beef and Sausage Braciole, Beef and Sausage lasagna, Antipasto, Zuppa Toscana soup, Minestrone and Pasta Fagiole.

Folks had better be hungry and take go bags as this volume of food is insane. 2 refrigerators are already full.

And trust me, it's worth the trouble of typing true north old Martin and a Mandolin in the search box at utube. Worthy of being put up on an ont post even. As are a number of their songs - hint hint.

Of course, it's just old guy, singer/songwriter stuff... a lot of it anyway.

And weak lyrics at that.

Daddy made it through the big one
Home in forty five
A photograph of momma
Is what he swore kept him alive
A purple heart and an old guitar
Given by a dyin' friend
Daddy promised him he'd play it

What a miserable existence they have.

161 I've been low-carbing it for a month and have lost 8 lbs. I don't want to blow it too badly tomorrow
-------------

Look at it this way, you probably couldn't eat more than two or three pounds of food if you had to. It isn't possible to gain more weight than what you consume. In point of fact, probably not half of what you eat can be converted to body mass. So, max damage couldn't be more than a pound or so.

That's my story, and I'm going with it.

171 Gotta share:

I was watching the TV Land original series "Teachers" last night. Anyway, I think at least one of the writers is a bit of a secret moron.

There was a scene where a young student catches his female teacher smoking, in her car. When the student calls her on it, she denies it even though it was obvious she's guilty. "I wasn't smoking!"

The kid replies, "sure you were! I saw you. Now I know both my heroes smoke! You, and Obama!"

Anyway, I thought it was a cute jab.

Not much on history.
Gary and his brothers' band had a recording contract with MCA a looong time ago. One album done and working on a second when president calls him into office.
"We're gonna add some steel guitar and fiddle to the first so we can put it in a country slot and get it out there."

Umm, no you're not.

Band broke up. Gary went back to school and is now a doctor.

Vinclu Inc, those responsible for the "Gatebox" (a device that provides a virtual 3D character to help users perform everyday tasks), have announced the opening of their "dimension-traveling station", which accepts marriage registrations with fictional characters - finally allowing otaku to be one with their waifu.

One odd bit

"Sec. 3. (a) The neighborhood representatives from each Assembly and Senate District shall convene in each respective District at noon on the first Monday in December of each even-numbered year for the purpose of choosing which neighborhood representative will serve in the Working Committees of each house."
----
So how does that work? Is it like a conclave where the Roman Catholic cardinals have to select a new Pope? Doesn't that have the potential to get rather messy and drawn out? It does sound like a clusterf*ck.


Although regarding At first this would seem to be more "democratic" in a Leftist view in that one couldn't directly "buy" a legislator, I can resonate with that sentiment. I've often thought in exasperation, maybe the country should vote on certain bills by referendum, since even the CoC and George Soros can't bribe us all.

Freedom resonates in a Person's SOUL.........sadly, so do other urges. And yet, FREEDOM still reigns. In fact, take a look around the World.....more Folks enjoy more Freedom Today......than ever before.

I reckon most of the Horde of Awesome behave in a manner that epitomizes what Freedom (Responsible, Reasonable, Rational, Etc) represents in y'alls everyday lives. Just so y'all know....Freedom is contagious.....HA!........

"Those who take up the vocation of politics, as Max Weber insisted, first must have an extraordinary amount of free time. "

Anyone who works for a living, or who has responsibilities which can't be shirked for hours of meetings picking delegates would not have any representation. But then that is the idea and ideal wanted.

But the real topper was a big slice of melodrama: the 1942 Bette Davis/Olivia de Haviland movie In This Our Life. Make that a slice and a half. After that we're all taking the day off tomorrow and just relax (although I have to go to work at 11 pm).

So, to all my fellow 'Rons and 'Ronettes at AoSHQ, a very Happy Thanksgiving!!

413 Infidel, thankfully family is coming to our house. Namely my other sister, her husband (they're estranged but get along just well enough to get through the holidays relatively bloodlessly) and their kids, my 16-year-old nephew Chase and 12-year-old (to be 13 in 201 niece, Skylar.

I especially try to have conversations with Skylar, but it's tough. She's a budding early teenager and is already getting pretty stick of grownups. I tell everyone, I'm not excited for her to turn 13 because it'll probably be 8 years before she will talk to any of us again.

Skylar is smart though. I joke she'll have a system: eyeroll to the left means 'yes,' eyeroll to the right means 'no.' ;-)

414 qdp, El Paso in right on the border. Not sure I would want to live there. Huge city on the Rio Grande.

Posted by: Infidel at November 23, 2017 01:49 AM (Ix4M6)

415 Anyone here from there, or lives there? Any thoughts? I know it's pretty hot in the summer.

I used to live in Las Cruces, NM, which is about 45 miles away from El Paso. My only real advice is don't buy anywhere near the river unless you don't mind the occasional stray bullet taking it's international sojourn through your airspace.

Also, yes it's hot, but not nearly as hot as Phoenix metro. Thanks to elevation at least 10 to 15 degrees cooler.

419 @ qdpsteve.

El Paso is lovely, in an arid desert kind of way.

The Hill Country NW of a line 'tween San Antonio and Austin, is spectacular.

S.E. TX, East South n' East of Houston? Less (flatter) terrain, more humid. But the saltwater proximity cannot be beat.

SOUTH Texas, Corpus down to Brownsville. More rural (to the extreme), and certain areas therein are BLUE STATE populations.

Do your diligence, and proceed accordingly.

And avoid the D/FW area at all costs.

Plano and Carrolton are Horde level conservative.

But the traffic and over built congestion make Houston look like Hooterville.

I think I did well on the verbal interview today. The Questionnaire with typewritten answers, bleck I made a typo. Had to print it off.

Posted by: qdpsteve at November 23, 2017 02:54 AM (eMKNe)

453 407 Also, I thought people here would be interested:

I have a sister and bro-in-law who, like me, don't want to wait until California is literally Apocalypse Now to leave. They want to pick up and move everything to another state, too.

As you all know, I personally like Nevada and Arizona, but am open-minded about the whole thing. Anyway, my bro-in-law likes... El Paso, Texas.

Anyone here from there, or lives there? Any thoughts? I know it's pretty hot in the summer.

An interesting place. The nicer parts of town are the portions further from the border. I agree with Jim: it is nice, in a desert, arid sort of way. I can see its appeal to people from CA: it has something like 300 days of sunshine a year. (Be advised that it is also a blue area.) It's a major city: about 550,000 people live there. The city across the river (Juarez) has a million IIRC.

I live in the Panhandle. Flat, featureless for the MOST part (except for overpasses). Of course, you hit any of the nearby canyons and it is spectacular. The cotton crops are being harvested so the sides of the roads have lots of cotton balls. Like El Paso, not much humidity up this way, though we have ag up here. Around El Paso, not as much.

Posted by: Infidel at November 23, 2017 02:57 AM (Ix4M6)

455 I moved to Texas from Calif in Feb.

I prefer the middle of West Texas to El Paso. I wanted the lower cost of living in a small town.

Surprisingly, El Paso has a very low crime rate. you'd think it would be high but the crooks seem to stay in Juarez!

If you want a larger city, El Paso seems fine to me.

Posted by: ArthurK at November 23, 2017 02:59 AM (XMCS3)

456 Ref summer in El Paso.

Electricity in Texas is cheap. Keep the A/C cranked up, it doesn't cost much.

I *am* surprised how power much electric heating uses...

26 You know what the opposite of fear is?

Trust.

The left does not trust anyone, and demands they be given the power to implement their utopian schemes or everyone is evil, hateful, racist, sexist, bigoted, homophobic and everything else they scream.

Because they are afraid. Afraid of the world, afraid of everyone else, afraid of the future, afraid of the unknown, and afraid that maybe, just maybe those crazy people might be right.

They have no trust, so they only have fear.

Thanksgiving is about gratitude and trust.

54 You know, I really despise al franken, first for stealing an election in what was know to be a relatively upright, corruption free state beforehand. second because he is a liar and serially disingenuous. However, in his defense, regarding the groping, have you taken a gander at his wife? hell, the biggest surprise is that he has not started sucking dicks.

given the choice of facing down her mug or going one on one with terry crewes dick you wonder how he chose his wife.

You must now be allergic to EVERYTHING, including:

- gluten
- dairy
- soy
- eggs
- nightshades (potato, tomato, eggplant, pepper, etc. etc.).
- alliums (onion and garlic)
... etc. etc.

Basically, everything that might imaginably be edible is now in the "allergy" spectrum.

And as a true hipster, you MUST be allergic to ALL of them!

We, meaning I, have been doing Thanksgiving for years as the YankeeFifths' Refugee Thanksgiving. My complaint about the turkey is the time. The sides are easy it is just having enough ovens to get them all done simultaneously.

Mrs. H. is attending her aged mother some 5 hours away, so I'm solo. Plans for tomorrow are to work Thanksgiving dinner for the Veteran's Rescue Quarters. Probably 200 or so meals to be served to sheltered Vets.

Hope I can leave doggeh alone to do that. We'll see. Otherwise, I'm going to have to have cereal for Thanksgiving.

103 Happy Thanksgiving horde! From Casa Redux. Heading to a friend's place in CT for the day (compete with local HS football game viewing) ~ then off to a place we rented in a small coastal town for the weekend. I already finished my contributions to dinner: two pecan pies, butternut squash soup (to be served with sour cream, grated cheese and pine nuts), blackened Brussel sprouts with bacon, walnuts and onion and, of course some lovely American Sauvignon Blanc. I am also bringing the materials to make a round of signature cocktails to start: Cranberry Manhattans with Knob Creak bourbon. My friend is doing the bird and the potatoes and a pumpkin pie and some other stuff. She also just got a new puppy. It's a rescue mutt from post hurricane Puerto Rico. Will snap some pics for the pet thread. In case I don't speak to you all between now and then, blessings upon all ~ thanks to God for our wonderful Republic ( as messed up as t is right now it is still better than just about everything else) and remember to give thanks for the fact that Hilary Clinton will never, ever be POTUS.

115 When I was in grade school, Thanksgiving Eve was Bomb Drill Day. We called it a "Going Home Drill" because we went home early. The idea was that we had enough advance warning of a Soviet nuclear onslaught that we could go home and die instead of die in the school's hallway.

Of course they never called it that. It could be a drill for any emergency, like a tornado -- but sending children outdoors during a tornado threat didn't make sense, so we were practicing for Russian nukes.

I would always take these drills seriously. I'd walk home quickly according to the drill, and I wouldn't look around lest my eyes glance at the flash of an A-bomb on the horizon and go blind. Then I would stay in my house for the prescribed 30 minutes and cower in make-believe fear that the world was ending. Then I'd go outside and play football with my friends.

I miss the Cold War. The true meaning of Thanksgiving is lost without the Red Menace and its thermonuclear arsenal. Nowadays, I never happen across a building labeled as a fallout shelter. Now, it's all about turkey and Black Friday sales. We still have the turkey, but there's nary a thought about World War III. This makes me sad for the current generation of children who never prepared for a thermonuclear exchange.

Ah, well. I'm just being nostalgic, I guess.

144 Tami, yep! Made rolls, mashed potato casserole, cut up all the stuff for stuffing (not dressing), and supervised my son making four pies. Yesterday did two kinds of cranberry sauce, and sweet potato casserole. Sunday made a pie and froze it. The rest gets done tomorrow.

170 We're hosting 3/4 of our family, and this is wife of a little over one years first time meeting most of my family. (We live half a nation away from them).

Being of Italian descent, she has let her inner Dago freak flag fly creating Italian food for the feast, which of course includes all the traditional stuff.

Beef and Sausage Braciole, Beef and Sausage lasagna, Antipasto, Zuppa Toscana soup, Minestrone and Pasta Fagiole.

Folks had better be hungry and take go bags as this volume of food is insane. 2 refrigerators are already full.

198 About a couple hours ago, I watched Charlie Brown try to kick a football but Lucy Van Pelt pulled it away. He did a flip in the air and landed on his back. It's a wonder the kid isn't paralyzed.

I haven't watched much football over the past couple of years, so I picture him playing ice hockey. Lucy's on the ice, too, being Lucy. Finally, Charlie Brown has had enough and he drops his stick and gloves and pulls the back of Lucy's sweater over her head and gives her what she's got coming to her. The ref gives him a five-minute major.

But here's where I get stuck. Sitting in the penalty box, would Charlie Brown say "Good grief" or "Rats"?

205 It'll be a quiet T-Day here this year. Just the three of us: Mrs. JTB, myself, and Prince The Dog. So it will be a relaxing day. The turkey is done and the spuds, other sides and desserts are kept simple and easy. Bach CDs playing in the background, good coffee and an adult beverage to sip, with good books in reach. A cold morning walk with the pup. Our idea of a slice of heaven.

This will be Prince's first Thanksgiving with us. He smelled the turkey cooking for hours. Now he's resting to make sure he has the energy to chew tomorrow. For a dog, he's very good at planning ahead.

Funny, because she only has one oven and never has room for my dish in it when we have something at her house.
And they expect me to bring something hot.
Oh well, it's Thanksgiving and we're all one big happy.

213 Do whatever it takes, if you cook for a lot of people often, which I gather you do. It's wonderful. It's a luxury for sure, but when you have a big family and you're the one who hosts all the fiestas for both sides (me me me me), it's very worth it.

Heh. We mostly use the second oven for warming plates. Every now and then a pie will go in while something else is being roasted.

Were you absent that day?

They had split up because he finally came out of the closet. (First thing I said to my husband the day we met them was 'That guy is gay'.) This guy was really wealthy. Owns the Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn here in this town...along with various other hotels around the midwest, apartment buildings and a couple of restaurants.

Anywho...his gay lover asked him to meet him at a seedy hotel down the hwy from here. He did and it was either outright murder or sexual asphyxiation gone wrong.

So the lover calls a friend to ask him to 'help him with something' and goes to pick up the friend. While driving back to the seedy hotel he tells the friend he killed, let's call him 'Mike'. They go to the store and get tarps and cleaning supplies. Go to the apt. Mike was living in and take all his watches and some credit cards that were there. Go back to the seedy hotel and wrap 'Mike's' body in the tarp and put in back of Mike's Porsche SUV. While driving around trying to decide where they're going to hide the body, a cop pulls up behind them for something like a tail light being out. They proceed to tear ass down the hwy., get off on an exit, drive through someone's yard, through a fence and hit a tree. The two get out and run. 'Friend' was caught right away. Cop took him back to the car and went to look in the SUV...'Mike's' body was wrapped in a tarp in the back.
Took the cops a couple more hours to find the other guy.

Still both in prison awaiting trial...although the killer did try to escape prison by diggin with.a.spoon.

275 Two days of appetizer cooking. Good stuff.

We have 4/6 of our family with us on the Farm this year. We used to do all of the cookingl, but as the kids are excellent cooks in their own right, John just does the turkey and a couple of pies. I do the mashed potatoes, and this year the apps which come out at 11 and count for lunch horse ovaries.

I don't know you people from Stanley Miles but you may find this tale amusing.

The house is all decorated for Thanksgiving. Lots of homegrown pumpkin and gourd displays, old times Golden Wheat dinnerware set to go, festive cloths, etc. Except for the actual dining room table which has just a beautiful cloth. So I mentioned the other day that the only thing I had left to do was a centerpiece for the table.

Daughter Kat said in jest, "Hey! Tony can do that."

Her husband Tony is a wonderful man. Very smart. We've known him since he was a first year grad student working with John. He spent 20 minutes the other day looking for Tukey's famous EDA book that they found for me. [Insert so many more stories which speak to the breadth of his knowledge and good humor] But I would not have listed interior decorating among his strengths.

So he did some research on centerpieces. Worked on it for two days. Concluded that Thanksgiving centerpieces were basically attractively arranged dead plant material.

He asked this morning-- and this was hilarious-- if I had a candle holder, the kind Scrooge would have carried. Of course! And then if there were more leaves to be added to the table. He needed scale.

What he came up with was beautiful. And personal on a level that only someone whose known you for only years and years, and who fell in love with your daughter, could have come up with.

Three very old books (I have thousands), all pertaining to food, stacked up in vertically random fashion, topped with a hurricane lamp and doused with a pile of colorful leaves.

I am thankful that along life's way John & I have collected some really wonder friends and sons-in law.

Thanks for your thoughts, Ace. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

285 Thought I'd pop in before lights out...in about an hour.

I was puzzled over this phrase above:

"I do the mashed potatoes, and this year the apps which come out at 11 and count for lunch horse ovaries."

I could not understand it. Or decipher it. I thought, well, I'm not a farm girl, but horse ovaries sound like a weird thing.

Then it clicked. Apps were appetizers. And lunch horse ovaries were lunch hors-d'oeuvres. I laughed so hard I had tears.

Omgosh. Autocucumber strikes again, and it's a classic.
Horse ovaries, the Thanksgiving of kings.

Of Course: Germany Arrests Six Syrian "Refugees" For Plotting Christmas Day Terror Attack

Pretending a threat doesn't exist does not end the threat. In fact, it aids the threat to maturation into a slaughter.

This sounds like a sequel to the attack that took place last Christmas in Berlin. Thatís when Tunisian refugee Anis Amri drove a truck through an outdoor Christmas market killing 12 people and injuring dozens more. Amri had pledged allegiance to ISIS before the attack.

This raid comes at the worst possible time for Merkel. As Jazz pointed out Monday, negotiations to form a new coalition government in Germany just collapsed. Merkel had been trying to form a government that included a right-wing party and the green party in addition to two other parties. And underlying Merkel's inability to form the new coalition was disagreement on immigration.

We had something similar. Daylight savings time was put up for a vote, and the majority voted against the idea. So it was put up for another vote, and it still failed. So it was put up yet again for another vote and people started to figure out that we would keep voting on it until we voted the right way.

Once it passed, we didn't have to vote on it again. It wasn't that voting was a burden, it was the gosh darn advertising. Endless advertising. You couldn't escape it. People voted for the time change to get the advertising to stop.

110 We had something similar. Daylight savings time was put up for a vote, and the majority voted against the idea. So it was put up for another vote, and it still failed. So it was put up yet again for another vote and people started to figure out that we would keep voting on it until we voted the right way.

They did that with taxes in Oregon. Just kept doing it over and over and over again until enough idiots voted for a tax increase on themselves.

111 The Free Beacon wrote an article about Rand Paul's terrible injuries. As you may know, Paul had not spoken with his neighbor in over ten years, had no "ongoing dispute" with him, and was wearing noise cancelling headphones when the neighbor ran out from his hiding place in the woods, ran down a hill and tackled an unsuspecting Paul in the lower back at full speed. Paul never heard or saw him coming, and had no inkling of his neighbors hate for him.

So what does the press say? "Rand Paul was a bit of an asshole" neighbor, says GQ. Kasie Hunt of NBC:

On Monday,
MSNBC's Kasie Hunt said the attack on Paul is "one of my favorite stories" and joked about his lawn maintenance showing "the libertarian in him."

They said, what no way that's not fair. I said well it's a tax you have to pay me. And my oldest kid says, daddy you're right, taxes do suck.

The youngest says, well I don't want to pay your stupid tax. And I said, OK then the penalty for not paying your taxes is I get to keep all your candy. That's how the govt does it. To which she said, fine you can have your stupid tax.

========

I don't think they're concerned about diversity as such.

In the past, we've tried to pressure certain nations, such as Russia or nations in Africa, to be more tolerant of homosexuals. Ie., US liberals really believe in homosexuality as a core value and have tried to promote it world wide. The same with abortion and forced sterilization.

As far as I know, we've never tried to promote diversity as such. We've never tried to get China to admit Africans or India to admit Iranians, etc.

So diversity as such is not really a core value. They want a return to feudalism, a nation of serfs ruled by an oligarchy. "Diversity" is just standard lefty misdirection.

197 The was a radio show this morning, Mike Gallagher I think, that played parts of Hillary's interview with Hewitt. One thing that struck me was she kept using different forms of some word over and over in a sentence. In one sentence it was various forms of "conclude."

I can't remember them exactly but it would be like if I said.

"The people want to be ruled by a ruler who rules them with good rules." I've never heard her have this quirk before.

It wasn't the same word each time but it seemed weird.

Harvard Being Investigated by DOJ for Possibly Imposing Racial Caps on Numbers of Asian Applicants Admitted

Gentleman's Agreement, East-of-the-Levant Version.

(That's a reference to the Cary Grant (IIRC) film "Gentleman's Agreement," about admission caps on Jews.)

The Wall Street Journal reports that Harvard University is being investigated by the Justice Departmentís Civil Rights Division. The investigation is looking into claims that Harvard discriminates against Asian Americans in admissions. The DOJ claims Harvard is refusing to cooperate and has yet to turn over a single requested document...

Isn't this the school that was so pig heatedly progressive and overly concerned with snowflakes that they decided to cover up the frizeof a musket carried by a Massachusetts Bay Colony Separatist from the 1600's?. John Harvard, a young minister in the 1600' gave his entire library and half of his estate to fund the college. I can guarantee you that the education the people in the liberal arts get there nowadays would be laughable and incomprehensible to the students back then They had to know Latin and Greek really well to get in. I don't know that many Asian students would be majoring in liberal arts but they deserve to get in if qualified.

That reminds me I've noticed other people here lamenting Drudge's decline. Big problem is all the links to the prog rags. I'd be interested to know how much they're paying him for those because I'll bet they are.

Anyway, try www.whatfinger.com. It's a news aggregator that's a lot better. Occasionally you'll see an msm link. They link Fox, for example. But often the MSM links are further down the page under the Fake News Quarantine Section banner (lol).

263 Welcome to the multicultural society. This is what you get and no amount of wailing about it is going to change it.

Some of the California colleges are majority Asian now. No one denies they grind a ton on studying for tests. However, there is a serious cheating problem and the ACT/SAT were not designed for the grind mentality. They were meant for kids coming out of high school who simply went and took the test. Maybe the took a couple of practice tests by that was it. People who actually prepare for it like Asians do skew the results.

BTW, look at what has happened with the tech certification tests. You rarely get any useful knowledge type questions. Now it's the obscure and rarely used stuff being asked to try and foil the Asians.

So far the only indictment he has is against Paul Manafort for possible tax evasion. The rest of the charges probably won't stick. His ultimate goal, because he would never be able to prove collusion and there is no statute that defines that, is to get Trump for obstructing justice. By that measure, HRC deleting 33,000 e-mails to avoid scrutiny should surely have brought charges.

278 The pellet grill is prepped and the turkey is brining. It's a bit chilly (32 now, dropping to 26), so I put the jacket on the grill.

3 AM it goes on for smoking. 5:30, temp up to 350. Should be ready around 11 AM. Supposed to be at SIL's by 12, but they are literally 5 min away, so I have so fudge factor time.

Taters are peeled and the giblets are simmering. I'll make gravy during the fudge factor time. Mrs IMG made cranberries the other day, but is stewing some apples now to add in.

PROFIT!!!!Oh wait..posted by: Cicero

there is a degree of truth there ... as long as people accept paper money fabricated out of nothing. Trillions are floating around like that, and it is "put to work" by people that did nothing but manipulated the system.

In the end people have to produce things, and "money" was supposed to facilitate the trade of such things. But government and private bankers figured they could get people to work for "fiat money" instead of getting real stuff.

That CAN be useful, to keep people producing and therefor there is stuff for others to buy, and it keeps people actively producing (goods and services). BUT how much of that is just consumed by those that consume nothing ... or those that produce nothing ... while real producers keeping getting the short end?

So middle class (producer) good people controlled by elite manipulators that buy welfare class votes. And that is just America ... now they want the world and to avoid voters entirely (see the EU, and Hillary's hemisphere of open borders)

But keep working for YOUR stuff, while those in inflated stocks make free money by the billion while doing nothing. They need a few good men.

It's hard to say, Jewells, because there are so many variables. First is the manufacturer. You'll hear all sorts of horror stories about Taurus, but I think they're fine. I have two Taurus pistols that I've been perfectly happy with.

Next is the model. There are lots of single-stack 9mm's out there like the 709 Slim. They're popular because they're easy to conceal. The problem, especially for new shooters, is that they all can be snappy as hell.

If you've shot enough to know you aren't sensitive to recoil, the 709 Slim might be fine for you. I couldn't suggest you buy before you've fired some small 9mm's, though.

I have Taurus Millenium G2. It's a compact double-stack 9mm that sells for the same price as the 709 Slim--$200 when you find a sale. I think it's an excellent value.

All Harvard has to do to beat the rap is quote affirmative action regulations. Harvard was affirmatively selecting for low test scores because it was the only way low achievers could attend Harvard.

It would be unfair to deny the low achievers their chance at a Harvard education. See?

If the overachievers were the only people at Harvard then income inequality would get worse when all the smartest and best-educated people took all the money away from poor people.

Not a bad price on the Taurus. I know I'm going to come across as kind of a jerk but if you buy, make sure you refer to it as a magazine, not a clip. If the dealer thinks you've done your research, they may throw in an extra mag free.

371 I read a study that said Asians need a median SAT something like 35% higher than blacks in order to be accepted at top colleges, in order to make up for the extra points blacks get for diversity. Hispanics was something like 25% and whiteys about 10%.

So yeah Asians definitely get fucked when it comes to affirmative action.

But my fucks given is pretty close to zero since Asians are good reliably Democrat voters.

Clintons are the Rosenbergs, except just last year Democrats ran a Rosenberg type candidate for POTUS, and the commie media almost assured she would win. Treason abounds.

443 "Diversity" is ENTIRELY about racial discrimination.

Virtually every college and large business in America is guilty of it, and the federal government REQUIRES it.

Whites, Jews, Asians get discriminated against. As do Men, Heterosexuals and Christians.

"Protected minorities" (Blacks, Hispanics) and Native Americans are the beneficiaries. As are women, homosexuals, Muslims, and now 'transgenders'.

Washington Post "Reporter" Gives Briefing to Democrats at Secret Strategy Meeting

Hand in glove. They always were hand in glove, but they tried to pretend they weren't.

Now it's just out in the open.


Washington Post reporter Janell Ross gave a presentation at a secretive California gathering where Democratic politicians, liberal activists, and their biggest donors plotted the future of the progressive movement without notifying her superiors that she would be attending, according to a Post spokesman.

The Democracy Alliance went to great lengths to keep the identities of its members and guests confidential at its fall investment conference last week at the La Costa Resort, but the Washington Free Beacon obtained a detailed conference agenda that lists both events and featured guests.

Among them was Ross, a national reporter who closely covered the 2016 presidential campaign for the Washington Post and has since continued to cover the Trump administration.


Ross sat on a panel to assist conference-goers on the topic of "getting the economic narrative right" in future elections, according to the agenda, which can be viewed in full here.

Good God, man! You're dabbling in tradition.

Records show that the first US President, George Washington, "...served an eggnog-like drink to visitors" which included "...rye whiskey, rum, and sherry." The President's recipe called for a variety of alcoholic beverages along with the dairy and egg ingredients: "One quart cream, one quart milk, one dozen tablespoons sugar, one pint brandy, 1/2 pint rye whiskey, 1/2 pint Jamaica rum, [and] 1/4 pint sherry." The recipe instructs cooks to "mix [the] liquor first, then separate yolks and whites of eggs, add sugar to beaten yolks, mix well. Add milk and cream, slowly beating. Beat whites of eggs until stiff and fold slowly into mixture. Let set in cool place for several days. Taste frequently."

The political implications of "demographic change" are that if the Democrats aren't able to flood the country with newly minted Democrat voters, and aren't able to convince the native populace to be sterile (to save the planet, of course), then they are doomed. I think they're starting to panic.

Pictures Released of Al "Fondles" Franken Groping Arianna Huffington in a Photoshoot

Remember when these two nothings were doing a high-larious sketch called "Strange Bedfellows" as they showed that people from different sides of the aisle could get along? Except of course they weren't from different sides of the aisle; Franken was a loud and boorish liberal, and Arianna Huffington was ending her pretending-to-be-a-conservative phase and being more honest about her progressivism too.

Anyway, these pics date from about that era. "Fondles" Franken again seems to think it's pretty funny to grope a woman in a picture.

Arianna Huffington is defending "Fondles" Franken just like she ran defense for another one of her progressive darlings, an editor who had multiple sexual harassment allegations against him.

[H]er history with a former managing editor whose "transfer" to launch HuffPost India was later revealed to be result of an HR investigation into whether he had sexually harassed multiple young women in the New York office. Gizmodo recently revisited those allegations and not only independently confirmed that the investigation was indeed the reason for that managing editor's transfer, but that Huffington knew about his actions before they were reported to HR, according to a former employee with direct knowledge of the investigation.

Aren't they saying it was probably posted by one of his old girlfriends as revenge porn, and so she could be prosecuted? I don't know why he resigned, except out of embarrassment and humiliation. he's no Adonis. I certainly don't want to see him nude. Maybe his old girlfriend talked him into in it by flattering his ego and then kept it when they broke up to get back at him.

69 she's laughing when Franken gropes her in the bed pic ... but that doesn't mean it was "mutual" or wanted. Same with the one in Minnesota ... she is smiling.

But it is an unexpected thing and a slap or punch is probably the right thing, but sometimes laughing it off is much easier. There should be a few indicators and some time leading up to more intimate contact. Not ... "Smile .Oh surprise, I'm groping"

But "punch a Nazi" ... well that is different. Can't have conservatives just running around free, talking and shit.

As you may have heard, a Republican congressman is embarrassed by a dick pic making the rounds:

https://www.texastribune.org/2017/11/22/ us-rep-joe-barton-deciding-how-respond-after-graphic-photo-circulates-/

However, unlike Anthony Weiner, he was an adult, separated from his wife, filed for divorce, having a few flings with other adult women -- so he did nothing wrong:

"U.S. Rep. Joe Barton, R-Ennis, released a statement on Wednesday apologizing for a graphic nude photo of him that circulated on social media earlier this week.

"While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women," he said. "Each was consensual. Those relationships have ended. I am sorry I did not use better judgment during those days."


To complete the tory, we NEED to see the dick pic itself -- but for some reason, I can't find it anywhere online. Anyone have a link for it? Morbid curiosity compels me!

Its a common joke for tv and movies. And to go all Ben Roethlesberger the joke is always the the guy is doing something and its an accidental grope, like his arms go out and the girl walks into his hands at just the right spot. And the guy knows its an accident and the audience knows its an accident and the girl slaps the guy because she thinks it was intentional. And the laughs ensue.

89 This afternoon I was in the car and listened to about ten minutes of the idiot who follows Rush on our local AM station. Guy Gordon, who was a weatherman for years in the Detroit metro area, now has a radio show on 760 am.

He was talking about John Conyers" payout for sexual harassment which Conyers says was a normal severance. ( Everyone who works as a clerk gets $27,000 for one year of work before they are fired, right?) Gordon and the Detroit Free Press want Conyers to resign. Ok.

Then he starts up with daring the Republicans to ask voters in Alabama to write in Luther Strange instead of Roy Moore, because it is the only right thing to do because of "all the allegations" against Moore.

A caller was livid about taxpayer money being used for Conyers to pay off his clerk and keep her quiet. Gordon then went on to ask the caller if Roy Moore should step down because...
And here's where I about drove off the road . Gordon claimed Moore has 8 women that have accused him of doing "horrible things to them" He conceded after the caller protested about the yearbook fake signature that Gloria Allred's client was possibly "not credible", but the 14 year old is still very credible. And that there have been numerous people come forward to corroborate her story, and also that Moore was under surveillance in the mall because he was a well known creepy guy.

You go from Rush to this. It is an ABC station, so I don't know what I expect....

The one thing I've learned (and have been told specifically by my wife) is that, if a woman is giving you a full-on frontal hug, she's fine with you knowing she's pressing her breasts against you. Full stop. And that's all. It doesn't have anything necessarily sexual about it, but it's a compliment because the womenses don't accidentally put those babies just anywhere.

Same with cleavage. If they're showing it, they know they're showing it and you should feel flattered. Nothing more, nothing less. But they're aware of what's going on with those suckers.

..
I accidentally molested a couple of guys at work. One, I was horsing around in the cafeteria line and my hand brushed up against a male staffer's butt. This staffer happened to be the HR director. I apologized and it was no big deal.

The other, we were moving some alligators, with 6 or 8 people carrying each one. Being more focused on the gator than on the human body parts, I didn't realize until we were putting the animal back on the ground that my boob had been molesting the male supervisor's arm the whole time.

This time I said nothing, hoping he'd been focusing on the alligator too.

But later in thread, his request got demoted in light of other more urgent requests. Although that seems like a pretty urgent request in my opinion, not to mention reasonable.

157 Even the male "players" were usually more discreet. The Hollywood/DC thing with public grabbing, or exhibitionist nasty stuff ... that's moving into a more sick realm.

It seems more about demonstrating the power over someone ... than wanting to "do them". Maybe that will always happen, but we sure don't need the biggest pervs running things ... how does THAT happen? ....

Genitalia are beautiful in certain contexts.

Being critical of public displays of overt sexuality is reasonable though, and I would sign on in a heartbeat.

Here's my two cents that you didn't ask for. ;^)
If you find other things appealing about this woman personality wise I would just not even worry about the fact that she requests someone under 5.7. She's not going to bring a measuring tape to your first meeting to see if you're below 5..7/ All that means to mean is that she's a short woman and doesn't want a date that towers over her. As long as you don't mind why does it matter?

Thanksgivingmanship, Reposted

Reposted Yet Again. This is once again a thing, as progressives talk up how they're going to inflict their lunacies on the rest of their families on a day that is dedicated to gratitude, not grievance.






Some other people just turned it into Thanksgrivance Day, like Joy Reid:



Frequent James Comey marionette Ben Wittes is also in the mood for pills and razor blades:



He's one X chromosome and 30 years away from chopping off one side of his hair and dying the rest of it blue.

Below, the repost on how to deal with these deeply damaged bits of once-human debris:

Thanksgivingship: How To Survive Your Dull-Witted Progressive Adultchildren Relatives Who've Been Reading Vox and Buzzfeed Articles About How to Survive You

Oxford Don Stephen Potter introduced the world to the principles of Gamesmanship [don't comment on old posts, the system will ban you] the way to win at games by resort to cheap ploys which were very close to cheating without being technically cheating. He later expanded his inquiries into the general field of "Lifemanship," the discipline of embracing life in a dickish and hostile spirit, sabotaging social rivals without quite breaching social etiquette.

Given that the progressive elder-children-yet-not-quite-adults you'll be encountering this Thanksgiving (who I will henceforth refer to as "grownchildren") will be armed to the teeth with Vox explainers and Obamacare propaganda, I herewith humbly submit these first sketches of a new branch of Lifemanship I call "Thankgivingmanship," which I define as the gentle art of insulting the stupid without alerting them to the fact that they've been insulted at all.

It is the goal of the dedicated Thanksgivingman, then, to achieve the sublime art of giving offense without offense being taken.

My basic strategy is thus: It would be as rude of you as it is rude of your cretinous grownchildren kin to allow a Thanksgiving dinner into a stupid game of Rachel Maddow Talking Points and their rebuttals.

So, rather than confront the unemployed idiots who will be assailing you, I propose instead to superficially avoid conflict and engagement on their dummy mouthflappings, and appear instead to agree with them.

But -- and here is the point -- a skilled Thanksgivingman will only appear to agree with the grownchildren to feeble intellects, such as those possessed by the grownchildren themselves. Instead of disagreeing with them -- which will cause argument and anger -- you will instead claim to agree with them, while in fact contradicting them, subverting them, of baffling them with statements that nearly, but do not quite, make sense.

Our definitions and mission now established, we turn to the first of our three primary Thanksgivingmanship gambits:

The Neutral or Nonsensical Statement Disguised as Agreement.Progressives do not process language the same way human beings do; they chiefly adduce meaning from tone and body language, like dogs.

This means that you can say many things which are either irrelevant, nonsensical, or otherwise not in agreement with the progressive subcreatures you're temporarily amidst so long as you deliver your words with a warm smile and a lot of nodding.

You may also use uptalk to express an insincere solidarity. As with dogs and babies, progressives find artificially high-pitched vocal tones to be soothing and possibly a prelude to Walkies and Snackies.

Whenever a progressive grownchild says something stupid and ignorant, which will be always, do not engage on the merits. Progressive grownchildren will become highly emotional and agitated at the slightest show of disagreement, and may wet the floor or claw at the furniture.

Instead, say something which is either neutral or nonsensical (which successfully communicates your true beliefs to other real human beings capable of deciphering obvious meaning) while deploying smiling, nodding, and uptalk to falsely convey agreement with to the more-stunted intellect of the grownchild.

For example, if a progressive grownchild says, "Rachel Maddow is just so amazing," you can respond by nodding and saying "Absolutely, Rachel Maddow is without doubt a mammal." (Or: "A mammal...?")

Possible responses to common grownchild mouthchatter include:

"Well I see that the 'Faux Noise Machice' has gotten everyone riled up about so-called 'terrorism' again."

"Doubtless! Terrorists only win when allow them to make us afraid, or dead." (Or: "Afraid, or dead...?")

"Can't people see that stupid cons are doing Just What ISIS Wants us to do?"

"It's so obvious-- the attacks in Paris weren't just an attack on human lives. They were an attack on our shared human capacity to be alive." ("To be alive, and stuff...?")

This is a very simple one, which can be deployed in a variety of contexts:

"None of this is Obama's fault -- he's doing the best he can to keep America out of another War of Choice."

"Boy that Obama-- he is really something, isn't he?"

As the evening wears on, and you are preparing to depart, you may become somewhat more blatant in your stealth insults, like so:

"I just read an explainer about this on Vox."

"Today's world is so remarkable! When I was young, we had to read books and derive our own thinking for ourselves. What a time to be alive, when sounding vaguely informed is no longer a luxury of the intellectual, but a cheaply assembled ware available to those of more common intellect!"

Fake Statistics. It was my old friend Boston Irish who alerted me to this ticklish little trope, when he observed that no matter how absurd the statistic you proposed to a progressive, if that statistic seemed to call attention to whatever bugaboos xhe was excited about, xhe would respond with a gushing "I know, right?!"

He demonstrated this to me at a party by interrupting a couple of liberals talking, and announcing to them:

"You know, based on current statistics, in ten years, the entire state of California will be homeless."

"Right! I know!" came the response.

By the way, that is not schtick. That is not a joke written for this blogpost. I was really there, he really said that, that really happened.

After having secured the agreement to his obviously-crank "statistics," he turned to me with a slightly arched eyebrow and sipped his beer in quiet triumph.

This propensity of grownchildren to agree to whatever fantastical "studies" and "statistics" you propose to them can be exploited for much private merriment at the holidays.

Other gambits include:

* "You know, the average family of four pays more in ATM fees to the Big Banksters than they spend on rent."

* "By the year 2030, global warming predicts that the entire North American landmass will be flooded by seawater and wolves."

* "99.4% of the world's wealth is controlled by six-tenths of a single person."

* "More people are killed every year by shooting accidentally shooting themselves than who died in all the wars in the world combined, except for the Korean War."

You need to throw that "Except for the Korean War" in at the end because the claim, on its face, is too preposterous, so you deduct out Korean War deaths to bring it into the real of the plausible. (Plausible, that is, for progressive grownchildren.) It makes like you've done the math and just have to make this one little adjustment to get the numbers to work.

You may follow Boston Irish's trope of the obviously-crank "liberal study" claim, or you can try your hand at claims which are simply baffling nonsense:

* "Studies have proven that if you have a gun in your house, you are more in danger of being struck by lightning than being bitten by a rattlesnake. Think about it."

A minor variation of the Fake Statistic ploy is the Fake Profundity gambit, in which you propose some ludicrous "deep thought" which derives not from social science, but from your own personal philosophical inquiry.

For example, this one is best delivered with chin uplifted, Obama-style, and a metaphysical glaze of the eye:

* "For what is it that gives the terrorists power -- their weapons, or our primitive, irrational fear that they will kill us with their weapons?"

It is generally a useful practice to prefix such bits of nonsense with faux-biblical language, such as "For what..." or "Lo" and "Thus and so."

Fake Quotes. Progressives love fake quotes -- they just love dressing up whatever passes for this week's SJW Conventional Wisdom and attributing it to some historic figure.

Generally, these historic figures are very well known, because progressives don't know any historic figures except the very well known. Thomas Jefferson is always a popular choice. For "bad sounding quotes," Hitler is preferred. Napoleon and Marcus Aurelius may be deployed as well, but be prepared for some confused looks as to who it is you're talking about.

Offering a ridiculous quote can bring you and any other lively minds at the table great amusement. Your target will probably not notice the quote is fake, because he is an imbecile, and also because you'll have a serene, self-satisfied smile on your face as you say it, which he will read as "A Fellow Progressive in Discursive Mode."

This minor camouflage will permit you to smuggle huge amounts of nonsense in the guise of Wisdom of the Ancients.

Feel free to subvert your noddingsmiles with messages that are blatantly mottos of the NRA, if only the grownchild could understand simple words, which they cannot.

For example:

"Wasn't it Mahatma Gandhi who said, 'It is not necessarily the first man to shoot who wins the battle, but it is always the last man shooting who wins the day'?"

"As Gertrude Stein said" -- and I should say here that this gambit works best when you pronounce this name, for no particular reason, in an outrageous German accent, as Gaertruude Schteinn.

So, let's begin again: "As Gaertruude Schteinn observed, 'The man who is slowest to arm himself is quickest to savor the bounties of Heaven.'"

Another gambit is to offer up the following quotes, which are applicable in a wide range of situations.

"I forget which scientist said it, maybe Neil DeGrasse Tyson, but it's worth repeating: 'Wars of religion always make me laugh because basically you're fighting over who has the best imaginary friend.'"

Or:

"A great philosopher, Gaertruud Von Schteinn, once said, 'Fear causes hesitation, and hesitation will cause your worst fears to come true'?"

You will get big nods for these Aphorisms of the Sages. You yourself can take pleasure in the knowledge that both quotes are from the movie Point Break, delivered by Johnny Utah (Keanu Reaves) and Bodhi (Patrick Swayze), respectively.

If you get any verbal expressions of agreement, a "hear-hear" or an "amen," you can extend the joke by saying, "In the words of the spiritual master Boddhisatva, 'You can do what you want, and make up your own rules. Why be a servant to the law, when you can be its master...?" or "Six seconds and we're going to be meat waffles.'"

Make this trope your own. Have fun with it. If you want to claim that it was Niccolo Machiavelli who first advised, "Sweep the leg, Johnny," go with it, but try to get your more subtle Fake Quotes in before "going big" like that.

A Final Word. At some point, even an experienced Thanksgivingman will go too far, and give his game away. At that point, there will be sulks and silences, and the Thanksgivingman will have actually failed at his goal, which is to give offense without offense being taken.

In such straits, the Thanksgivingman, in order to be the polite person he wishes to be, will have to apologize -- it is the verminous grownchildren who have come to bicker and strife, after all, not the well-mannered Thankgivingman.

However, for the zealous Thanksgivingman, even an apology can be exploited for further Thanksgivingmanship points.

For example, if the childanimal you are speaking with declares:

"You're micro-aggressing me."

...then be sure to respond,

"Ah, then please sincerely accept my most micro apologies."

6 (nearly willowed) OT tech question:

I'm planning on getting a ps4 this weekend
(gamestop is running the same deal as everyone else knocking the price
down to $199 which is frankly where consoles ought to be, but also
giving out $50 gift cards according to the ad I got Monday). Does anyone
have an opinion on the $10 stand so you can set it on it's side?

It
obviously takes less shelf space that way, and I'm hoping that puts the
vents far enough from the supporting surface to discourage dust
accumulation, but I wonder about the physics/engineering of rotating the
disc at that angle, i.e. if I'm taking a risk of added wear and tear
from the position?

Tonight is one of the biggest drinking nights of the year so we'll have extra patrols out looking for drunk drivers. We'll be blaring 'Don't stop believing' out of our squad PA system. Anyone who runs up to us singing the chorus gets PBT'd. It's a foolproof plan. Drive sober.

They'd appalled, that's true, but not at all for the reasons he imagines.

14 The Pilgrims came to this country for freedom of religion. They also desired a theocracy, at least in their midst, and their religion was very strict. I'm sure that's what Benjamin Wittes wants. Either that, or he didn't study history at all. Either/or.

Hmmm, I thought that the Pilgrims came here because the European elites kept dictating to them how to live their lives, and they got fed up. Seems like we are keeping the tradition of proper defiance alive and well just fine!

Actually, a good many of them died the first year because of disease and the rest of them likely would have starved had some of the local Indians not shown them how to plant corn and fish.

The first Thanksgiving was really more of a traditional European thanks for the bounty of the crops. Some of the local Indians who had helped them were invited and the story was born.

The colony broke down because many of the Pilgrims chaffed at the collectivist rules and lack of the same religious freedom that caused them to leave England in the first place.

Lots of myths about the pilgrims and Thanksgiving including Plymouth Rock which was not the first place the pilgrims came ashore.

Well it was a combination of several things.
1) Many of them were not farmers, they were merchants, clerks, etc. So farming wasn't exactly well known to them
2) Moving to a new area you will not necessarily know what will grow or what the growing season is, etc.
3) they brought seeds and so forth, but a lot spoiled on the way, and they didn't know what was edible and what was not in the new world.

Heh.

Went out with my cow-orkers for lunch today to McAllisters for sammiches. Observed normal folks getting lunch.

Except for the fat 20-something guy with the scraggly beard, man-bun, skinny jeans and t-shirt.....and most damningly, a great big puffy knit scarf. It was about 55 degrees out, brisk but not arctic-oh-my-sweet-lord-my-dick-just-froze-and-fell-off cold.

Shit. This is rural Texas. We're not supposed to have people like this here. It took every ounce of discipline not to give him a wedgie and steal his lunch money, just for being a fashion douche.

Yeah. Organic gardeners use fish emulsion but I guess that's all small scale stuff. Which reminds me of an old article about Rand Paul, which I saw after he was attacked. Awhile back he and his wife had done a interview about how they like to compost, and use fish emulsion on their vegetables. Lefties were making fun of them in the comments, I guess because organic gardening is good, but only if done by people with communist leanings. I'll never get this way of "thinking".

Poor Grandma. After living in the same house for almost 50 yrs, she moved out here to a new place. She was hell bent on having Thanksgiving at her place. After a few hours we were wondering how come we couldn't smell anything. Her new oven had 2 controls for baking in the oven. She was devastated. Needless to say, dinner was fun, if a little drunk. Including Grandma.

According to Of Plymouth Plantation they were mainly farmers. It sounds like the soil quality was very different from what they were used to though, Bradford described it as "exhausted" which seems odd unless it was very nutrient poor to begin with. They also weren't accustomed to maize as a food crop and kept trying the grains they were used to. Bradford said that after they allowed people to work their own plots, and trade any excess, they never starved again.

It just seems... excessively picky. Yeah I don't want to be hugged necessarily at work but that doesn't rise to the same level of awful as groping or wanking in front of someone, much less worse crimes.

I worked at a convenience store once and the manager who I knew from school kept giving me shoulder rubs while I was at the cash register. It wasn't some come-on, I think it was meant to be chummy, etc (trust me, she didn't like me that way at all). But I didn't like it, not because it was creepy but keep your hands off me while we're at work for crying out loud.

But what I didn't consider it to be was sexual harassment. Not worth reporting to the company, not anything to get upset about.

Well, when you consider that the wilderness came right up to the sea in those days and so they had to clear that out to make fields and farms - and England and Holland's climate is more temperate, with a longer growing season than New England's, different soil - it could be that the plants, seeds they had brought with them didn't grow that well here.

286 If you want to drive these assholes crazy (and who doesn't) keep shifting the topic based, sort of, on what they said. Start with phrases like: "That reminds me of" or "You know, that brings to mind". Then launch into some esoteric minutiae about Lord of the Rings, Travels With Charley, or anything they are unlikely to have read. Make it something you care about and can expound on for hours. If they interrupt with another BS point, repeat the procedure with another outre matter.

The beauty of this is that there need be no actual connection between their words and your topic.

Of course, if they actually show up with Fucky Schumer's graphs and tables, you get to shove it up their ass after folding it so it is all sharp corners.

The main thing those reunions do is reveal how thoroughly the commie left has been in infiltrating the minds of the average American. Generally the blue collar have the better grip on reality, which is how we got Trump maybe.

But the eyes glaze over even for the best of them, if the debt bomb and fiat currency comes up ... or Uranium One and hard drives wiped like with a cloth. Blissful ignorance is more fun.

I'm glad we won the west (saw "How the West was Won" at the drive in decades back), All in all, Indians were not such advanced or polite peoples, except when they came for Thanksgiving Dinner.

The past few years have, for me, been a race to the bottle of Jack and never letting go until the Turkey hits the table. Conversations? Nothing past the weather and football, and pro football is off limits this year, of course.

So it is just the "is Alabama really a true number one" conversations, and they get boring.

The only down side to this new strategy is that I have to cut back on the Jack, in order to complete my sentences.

I'll give it a year and see how it goes.

302 My favorite is starting with "not a lot of people know this...." 60% of the time it works every time. Also add in the words "true fact" at the end. For example:

"Not a lot of people know this, but 86% of homeless people can't make their mortgage pavements. True fact."

"Not a lot of people know this, but Neal Degrasse Tyson once bit off a man's ear. True fact."

It really helps if you manage to slip in the word "stadistics".

"Stadistics say by the year 2050, over half the world's population will be pregnant if we don't supply some free birth control. True fact."

If they call you on mispronunciation, deny it vehemently. A really classy move is to accuse them of racism/sexism/classism.

"Hey, I may not always pronounce words correctly like people of your status, but at least I know what they MEAN. Unlike our presidents."

Some Prominent "NeverTrumpers" Take Sharp Left Turn and Become NeverGOPers

Bret Stephens, Jen Rubin, and Bill Kristol have never been real conservatives, but have felt the need to pretend (slightly) so they could occupy positions of influence in a movement they were never actually a part of.

Now they're liberated to show their true liberal stripes.






Those are just some tweets illustrating this, but June Kelly's piece about the Dropping of the Masks is worth reading.

No, that's not it precisely. I, too, was completely opposed to Trump. However, unlike them, I'm willing to admit that I was wrong, not because he didn't act the buffoon while campaigning, because he did, but because his actual performance as President is far better than I'd dared to hope.

Also, I actually believe the things I say. I'm not just saying the for a paycheck.

The Right to Persue $$$ & The Right to Pinch A$$.

Just my take on it.

And by the way, their "principles" consist almost entirely of open borders and free trade, policies that benefit the rich.

Don't forget the evermore war.

51 Trump will betray you and govern like a Democrat!

~~~~~~~~~~

Trump is governing like a conservative so now I have to leave the party because of principles!

52 The delicious irony here is that Trump supporters did so due to principles - the things Trump espoused during his campaign... despite the 'Party's' preferred insider choices. We followed Trump because he stood for principles we cared about, that the Party had ignored.

so - fuck these clowns.

53 To echo many here:

What principles?

What exactly are you talking about that you just can't abide in Trump?

Or is it, just maybe....

People like Trump better than they like you and what you're selling. And you hate that.

58 Ed Gillespie was head of the RNC, right? He couldn't be any more establishment than that.

Trump Derangement Syndrome is a thing, and it infects Dems and Reps alike.

DJT has done a hostile takeover of the Republican Party, and they still can't believe it. Which means one of two things, either the Republican Party was being run honestly and fairly and the candidate with the most votes won, OR the Republican Party was being run by morons and he walked in and put his name on the door and nobody could stop him.

60 Because we Never-Trumpers have fidelity to principles, not party.

What ever happened to the "ideological purity test" cudgel these same assholes used to beat conservatives over the head with in order to get people to vote for the GOPe?

73 To hark back for moment... those UCLA round-ballers who were busted in china for shoplifting: is there any charge that could be brought against them in the USA? "Foreign activities unbecoming a representative of America" or something? I know Americans going overseas to partake of underage pussy can be charged.

I think 2020 will be a lot more fun than 2016 turned out to be.
