Pamela Geller has the whole disgusting story.

I don't know what I would do if I was the father of the girl and that's what they told me. I believe I would go mad. I wonder how the Swedish father actually reacted?

If you're low or depressed, and need a reason to feel good about yourself, take this quiz on Roman numerals. You'll get 100%. I thought everyone knew the Roman numeric system with all the L's and X's and stuff. I know it because I had it beaten into me by fascist nuns back when I was in 3rd or 4th grade in Catholic school, so I don't think it's particularly difficult. What *do* they teach kids in schools these days?

Churchill. He couldn't even say 'Nazi'. He would say 'Noooo-zeeehz, Nooooooooooooo-zeeehz!' It wasn't Noses! It was Nazis!

Churchill!...Let me tell you this! And you're hearing this straight from the horse. Hitler was better looking than Churchill. He was a better dresser than Churchill. He had more hair! He told funnier jokes! And he could dance the pants off of Churchill!...Churchill!

Well, it's tough to motivate people to vote win they know that the result makes no difference with McConnell and Ryan in charge.

Vote Moore - still No Obamacare repeal
Vote Jones - still no Obamacare repeal

Vote Moore - No border security, No immigration reform, instead we get DACA
Vote Jones - No border security, No immigration reform, instead we get DACA

Etc, etc, etc.

This will be the biggest issue in 2018 and the main reason that the Dims stand a good chance of winning the House and possibly the Senate.

No matter who Republicans vote for they still get the Democrats' Agenda.

Why vote Republican?

Yep. The Race is a channel of water that serves as the unofficial entrance to Long Island Sound. It's off Fisher's Island which is probably one of the wealthiest little chunks of land in the US and the the features on the bottom cause a large rip of water that can really affect boat travel, particularly when sailing.

79 I've seen a number of Sir Winston's paintings and like them. The scenes are pleasant to view, his color choices always seem appropriate, and the perspective is good, not distracting. (Perhaps his hobby of building with bricks honed his sense of proper placement.)

On the book thread I have praised Churchill's book "Painting as a Pastime". It recounts how he started painting in his middle years and why he considered it a valuable activity generally and specifically. It is a delightful little book with humor and practical advice.

122 Bandersnatch, this might be bad form on my part, but I want to respond to your #444 in the previous thread.

Omarosa's job, vaguely defined, was selling Trump to the black community, and she had trouble doing that because the 'black community' discounted anything she said because she was selling a White Man's (White Supremacists) public policy that wasn't beneficial to the black community.

The Washington Post is admittedly all too often a biased source but that article confirmed my personal bias so I believe it to be true, or at least true enough.

131 I'm a huge Churchill fan but he did screw up with Stalin that caused subsequent problems. Of course he wasn't the only one to screw up.
Posted by: Alabaster Jones
--------------

Churhill full realized the threat that Stalin and the Rooskies represented, and wrote about it at the time. The simple fact though was that the Germans were overrunning Europe, and Britain, standing alone, was not going to be able to stop them.

That it was a deal with the devil was nearly certain, but the alternative was to be crushed beneath the Nazi heel.

I am far more inclined to blame Roosevelt, who was rather enamored with Stalin, and who provided the most support to him. Roosevelt should have cut all aid and support after the Battle of Moscow, when it became apparent that the Russians were going to be able to deal the German invasion.

132 Omarosa's job, vaguely defined, was selling Trump to the black community, and she had trouble doing that because the 'black community' discounted anything she said because she was selling a White Man's (White Supremacists) public policy that wasn't beneficial to the black community all free shit and impunity, all the time.

I'm done giving any credit to that "community".

232 Went to the "Newseum" yesterday on a field trip. It's a giant memorial to RECENT (comparatively) media elite and the most self-indulgent, self-agrandizing load you can possibly imagine. They credit themselves for "civil rights" gains, "Camelot" and "understanding 9-11" (although radical islam never mentioned). Their display on "Fake News" ONLY includes a reference to Cosmic Pizza and nothing else. I'd say 75% is dedicated to 60s civil rights protests and 20% to John Kennedy (failing to mention any negative with one picture of him and Eisenhower talking at Camp David during Cuban Missile Crisis. 5% congratulates themselves on covering 9-11 and the Berlin wall.

The teacher carefully gave me only conservative kids, I suppose so i wouldn't poison them. Funny though, the newseum "educator" had each table of kids come up with what they'd "protest' if they could. Every table except one went off on "objectifying women" or lgbtq treatment, etc., except one. The kids I got told her they wanted to overturn Roe v wade. The old broad almost shit herself.

for him to do that, and the cop explicitly said not to or he WILL be

Pete - I hope you are online. Sadly I was at the gun range yesterday when you posted this.
Martial Arts is not just the study of how to fight - it is also the study of human conflict and why people fight.
I have been teaching people Martial Arts for over 30 years and you have some misunderstandings of people and how they function. About .1% of people lack the pathways in their brains to easily interpret verbal commands into physical actions. I have encountered such people while trying to instruct them. If you tell them to "step forward with their left foot" they go into a freeze or step backward with their right foot - or randomly move their hands. Interestingly if you ask them questions like "Can you step forward with your left foot?" They are often able to do that.
You have assumed that everyone has your ability to interpret and obey verbal commands, and that is not true. Nobody's brain is perfect in all respects - we all have areas where we lack the neurons necessary for success in every situation. In watching that video I immediately saw that this is a person who has problems interpreting and obeying verbal commands. The officer might as well be shouting instructions in Klingon for all this person understands what he is being told.
Why does he put his arms behind his back the first time? He didn't have a weapon he was reaching for - why would he do that? He probably wanted to appear as non threatening as possible and thought something like "When they hand cuff you they put your hands behind your back - so I'll do that for them."The person who died was desperately trying to do what he was told - listen to his terrified voice.
By the way, the sergeant playing "Simon Sez" with him asks early if anyone has been drinking. That is because he KNOWS that drunks can't obey verbal commands. Also note that the Sergeant KNOWS that the person is making erroneous movements. He says "If you make another mistake we will shoot you." He KNOWS they are mistakes and not threatening moves - but he is looking for an excuse to use deadly force.
Why did the person reach in back of him a second time? He probably remembers thinking that would be a good thing to do - so he does it again. Poor bastard.

Imagine a monster, huge, elaborate, mostly SOARING space, all glass and chrome and self-love sitting on some of the world's most expensive real-estate and then imagine it being surrounded by FREE museums, many of them and then the "newseum" charging $25 to get in. Then imagine that all the exhibits are easily found on-line. (I didn't pay squat, as they let school children be indoctrinated no-charge).
The lib teacher and various old boomers kept saying that it would take DAYS to see everything while I couldn't find much to entertain me---I'd seen it all before and knew more background than the exhibit plaques.
I guess if you're OBSESSED with watching and rewatching "Selma" (did you see it!! Did you see it!?! said the newseum staffer) you could stay all day, but it's hard to have existed the last 40 years and have not already seen it all.

304 I can't remember the comment number re canned foods, but you are absolutely correct. Generations grew up with those, and I wager they had fewer health problems than we are seeing today. Heck, living overseas, there were some posts where we had to bring our own food because it was unsafe to eat locally, and guess what we brought? Canned get, canned meats (canned chicken makes some interesting and actually tasty food) and canned fruit. We were fairly well fed, and didn't get sick.

The Nutritionists today pooh pooh such comestibles, because you should only eat fresh. Well, if you can't afford it, you have to do the next best thing, and canned goods have a longer shelf life than frozen items, especially if you don't have the money/space for an extra freezer.

While this may have happened a long time ago in a galaxy far far away, it deserves to be called out now. By allowing a predator in the workplace, and not doing enough to fight sexual harassment, the Jedi Council ultimately engineers its own demise.

Members of the Jedi Council should've removed [Anakin] Skywalker from the Jedi Order after his many missteps while protecting Sen. Padme Amidala. If they had, Chancellor Palpatine would have been unable to leverage Skywalker into destroying the Jedi Order, dismantling democracy and creating the first Galactic Empire.

Sounds like my dad! He was a food connoisseur and taught us to buy the best of the best, but he loved to chow down on hot dogs and if we ever burnt any baked goods in the oven, he'd be first in line to eat them, happily. He also insisted that the only way to enjoy fresh figs were when they were covered in mold. He was fond of saying, " You kids don't know what's good for 'ya!" I think he was that way because when he was a kid, food was hard to come by and you were grateful for any sustenance.

True story -

Growing up, we raised and butchered our own hogs and beef.

We had relatives in from Romania who were here for an extended period - I don't know the details, I was very young. At that particular time, my parents had a few hogs they were going to butcher and sausage out. The Romanian decided to buy one of the hogs from us and butcher it themselves.

One day while my father was at work, they showed up to kill the hog and take it away. My mom was like, "OK. Have at it." She said about a half hour later they came to the house asking if they could have a couple glasses. She asked them why they needed glasses. It was so they could capture and drink the still warm blood.

My mother never forgets that and she still blanches to this day when she tells the story.

Just saw that Blake Farenthold (R, Texas) is going to retire now, after
more stories came out. A shame, since they're mainly riffs on the theme
that he is a socially inept clown, rather than an actual perv.



One line from the story really cracked me up, made me think he might
even fit in here: "He does admit, however, calling his aides
"F**ktards," but says it was in jest. That admission along strongly
suggests that Farenthold has profound boundary issues, as well as human
relations problems."

Thing is, people who are truly innocent don't just resign over false allegations. That's been the eye-opener for me during all this. If you really, truly didn't do anything, why resign? Why apologize? Why let your career be ruined and your character be impeached forever after over nothing? If you do that, your helping to create a world where all anybody has to do is point at you and say you are a rapist. Or a child molester. Or a racist. And that's that, you are guilty.

I feel the same way, but I do think it was a mistake politically to give Fortune 500 companies a giant tax cut and giving peanuts to upper middle class taxpayers, especially since every major corporation was uniformly against Trump and takes every social marxist position possible against conservatives.

I would have crafted something that was more targeted to small businesses, instead most of the tax cut is going to go to companies like Apple, Google, Facebook, Target etc

So screwball me handled it in a way I do best. One night finally there was filet mignon on the menu. By that time I was up to my eye brows with this stuffy bullshit of wearing a god damn suit on vacation just so I could eat this crappy pretentious food. The waiter gets to me and I lean to the wife, put on my best "southern gentleman" voice and blurt out "well shoot my dog and call me sally, I'm gonna have me some of that fill-it Mig-none".

Fuck them people.

465 Flounder was 'fluke'

Fluke is colloquially known as summer flounder, a different species from winter flounder which is basic flounder.

The fluke has a larger mouth, extending beyond the eyes, and sharp teeth, because it is piscivorous. The flounder has a smaller softer mouth for grubbing on the ocean floor.

Sole is in the same family but it doesn't live here. If you get actual Dover sole it means you have last week's fish flown in from some pestulant estaminet in England.

This will be on the mid-term.

The Morning Report 12/14/17

mock.jpg

Good morning kids. We'll start of this Thursday with the continuing, and hopefully soon to end, autopsy of Tuesday's debacle in Alabama. As we all know, Roy Moore was a flawed candidate for a number of reasons. That doesn't mean I and most of you did not support him; we all wanted him to win. It's just that our wish-casting and transposing our logic on to the voters vis a vis allowing the alternative to win (which they did) was illusory. Now all that said, much of the blame can be laid squarely on the drooping shoulders of Mitch McConnell. He wanted an Establishment lackey, like Thad Cochran only with a marginally higher brain stem function, and NOT a member of the House Freedom Caucus, represented by Mo Brooks. And so from the get-go he supported Luther Strange, but for whatever reason (I am uninformed about Alabama local politics) Moore threw his Stetson into the ring and the voters chose him in the runoff. And the rest as we all know is history. Now, yes, while Moore as stated was flawed, the combination of the smear campaign against him, his own idiosyncrasies, and the abandonment by the GOP-e until it was essentially too late gave away what should have been a lock to a Democrat. This crap cannot happen again. I have no idea how we a) get good candidates and b) fight both the Democrat-Media Complex smear machine and the GOP-e at the same time. Mercifully, I think the Democrats have much more to lose in the midterms and despite this considerably significant steal in Alabama, I also think they are deluding themselves into thinking they're going to win big in the midterms. We shall see.

And that said, the Tax Reform bill has cleared reconciliation and a vote on the final bill could come before Christmas. Despite its flaws and sops buried in it, there are significant items that could ignite an already roaring economy into the stratosphere. With a legislative success that should translate into real economic gains for ordinary citizens, the Democrats should in theory be beaten yet again, and handily, as they have been for every election since 2010 (the two-term Reign of Error notwithstanding).

Rod Rosenstein, the miserable Deep State worm who inflicted Robert Mueller on us, was grilled alternately by Jim Jordan and Trey Gowdy. But the execrable sub-moron Sheila Jackson-Lee beclowned herself yet again.

In Groperdammerung news, a Kentucky GOP state legislator reportedly committed suicide over allegations of sexual assault of a teenager, a former Minnesota Planned Parenthood apparatchik chick has been named to replace Al Franken, but will Franken give up his seat or will he have to be physically ejected like Omarosa Manigault apparently was after being fired by PDT yesterday? And Marcy Kaptur is bucking for a position on the Saudi Arabian Modesty Squad by saying women invite sexual harassment by dressing provocatively. Even in the War on Women, generals fire on their own troops, eh Marcy?

From hither and yon, John McCain's tumor was readmitted to the hospital yesterday, there's a report that indicates ISIS may have created a phony Christian terrorist group to take the blame for last month's Egyptian mosque massacre, scrawny race hustler and paid insurrectionist DeRay McKesson is suing Jeanine Pirro and Fox news for defamation of character (assumes character not in evidence) and finally an essay by the great Oleg Atbashian of People's Cube fame about how the Left's sexual assault feeding frenzy is a direct result of the sexual revolution it created all those years ago. Sow, Reap. Some assembly required.

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

23 During a patriotic spasm of Made in USA a few years ago, Marcy Kaptur got braced-up by local reporters, about, just where would you have people get their clothes, then, since most of the ILGWU employers are, you know, out of business? "Oh,"she told them, "I have my suits made by a seamstress in the neighborhood."

The neighborhood, which I will drive for you on a dare, having changed in a certain way, one can assume that particular seamstress is now altering angels' wings. Marcy bought for value though: doesn't look like she's needed any new clothes in the intervening 25 years...

27 For Rove and Stirewalt and other anti-Trumpers, the Alabama loss was a victory for them over Bannon.

As noted above, it was McConnell pushing the establishment candidate that is at fault. These three way races (as with Akin in Missouri, backed by the Dem in the primaries) are an effective way to torpedo a better "tea party" candidate.

Palin backed a woman who could have won, and Mo Brooks would have won. I don't know who thrust Moore upon Alabama, but I'd suspect GOPe or Dems could have been in on the plan to split the conservative/evangelical stronghold to pave the way for Mitch's boy. (just a guess)

How about the fact that an overwhelming majority of the public to not want such laws you assholes. And gun grabbing congress critters unless they are in CA, MA, or NY often get booted because of trying to cram these laws down the public's gullet.


And where was your referenced Sandy Hook shooting? Why it was in one of the States with some of the strictest gun control laws in the US. Gun Control simply does not work. In fact, the Sandy Hook shooting was done by stupid kids who were not supposed to have guns to begin with. As was the latest Las Vegas shooting by an ex-felon.


And Faux, if we are going to shit all over the 2nd amendment then why not shit all over the first and have press control. There should be a 5 day waiting period of news reports so a review by News Critics can be performed. Also felons should be banned from being reporters. In fact news organizations should have the same rules and regulations mirroring all the gun control crap because they are just as dangerous to the country as a whole.

It's a parkway, that goes directly from the new Federal Court building to the new State Penitentiary (surprisingly, there are a couple of stops in between, but no actual buildings or businesses), and took out the site of the Autolite Strike historical marker.

59 Here's something for consideration re: allegations of sexual misconduct from teens and very young women.


I wonder if there could be a connection between the rash of allegations and the recent explosion in Mental Health treatment facilities (driven by Obamacare funding). I have personally seen teenagers who were admitted to hospital for suicide attempts or suicide gestures, taken in to group therapy sessions where they are encouraged to see themselves as victims. They are trained to place the blame for their actions outside themselves. Wedges are driven between teens and their parents. Dependency on the mental health team is fostered. I wonder if we are looking at another mass hysteria along the lines of the daycare Satanist hoax, only writ large by the psychiatric community.

60 There's plenty of blame to go around for The Slamma In 'Bama, but I'll add this one -- There are plenty of conservatives in the Deep South, but they ain't lockstep evangelicals. I'll give two examples from MS that don't fit the evangelical mold -- Legalizing casinos (bitterly fought from the pulpits) and a proposed amendment to our constitution that would define life as beginning at conception (an attempt to ban the morning after pill plus any abortions whatsoever).

That amendment failed to pass by a very large margin, 67 33 iirc. And the evangelicals pushed it hard.

Roy Moore going after 'sodomy' saying it should be illegal, right before the election, is one of those A Step Too Far bits. He spouted it again after the election loss too. Really, Roy? Homosexuality should be a crime? Like fuck off, dude. Like totally. Like forever.

Someone posted on Twitter that the Democrats had 80% turnout and the

choose to stay home and allow a radical lefty win the Senate seat
instead of vote for Roy Moore? That is downright idiotic on the part of
Alabama GOP-voters, if true.

96 When we leased a house in the Woodlands in April we foolishly didn't give a thought to the possibility of flooding. After all, it's the Woodlands! Husband and I both grew up in Houston and never had water in a house before. I guess living away for almost 20 years gave us a false sense of security. I've read since Harvey that developers brought in truckloads of dirt to lift this area a few inches out of the floodplain. I'm just glad we don't own this house but feel really bad for those around us that do.

113 Prayer request

I am trying to stay away from the political stuff for a while-at least sporadically, However I need a big dose of prayer for this morning from the people who pray, please. I have to meet with someone at 9:30. EST They need a call to accountability and they do not take criticism well, although they are good at faking that they do. This is not someone in my congregation, but they could make life quite difficult for me if they chose to and I have to be careful-yet truthful- in what I say. The whole idea of saying what I need to makes me rather nauseous. I know that "Christ has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love, power and a sound mind" (2nd Timothy 1;7) but it's one of those "scary" conversations. I'm sure everyone has had those kinds of conversations before, so you understand. Please pray that I say what I need to and not what I don't. I need to get out of the way and let the Holy Spirit take charge. Thanks so much,

And Slap-Ypu don't need to put this on the prayer list. The conversation will be over by 11:00

152 All politics are local. Some people should have that tattooed into their forehead so they can remember it.

How many Christine O'Donnell's, er, Roy Moore's do people need to learn the lesson that you go to war with what you have, not what you want.

Personally, I think the conservative case against Strange was weak- and the case against Moore was strong, even before the apparently fake sexual allegations. It was largely based on pathos, not intellect or sagacity.

When the senate vote hangs so closely, mistakes like this will cost you an entire agenda. There is some momentum- so why would you undercut that movement?

The one thing people should worry about is the amount of money and GOTV the Dem's did to win that seat. WHile the fact it was a special election, and they will need to spread that effort around in a regular elections cycle, they still have deep pockets. While splitting the GOP, write-ins and controversy certainly helped their victory, we should not lose sight of all the contributing factors. IMVHO

153 "Someone posted on Twitter that the Democrats had 80% turnout and the GOP had 50% turnout of their voters. "

true ... but that is compared to 2016 turnout. In AL I'd guess many Dems don't bother to show up when they know their "vote doesn't matter". In this case they knew their vote could matter.

GOP turnout was depressed though, but often is for special election. Clearly the sex claims and big money had an impact, but even disregarding that, Moore had problems.

I was still for Moore, but he may indeed have provided a lot of ammo for the left for years, with Akin like quotables (zero abortion tolerance, sodomy laws, awkward ignorance on some issues)

173 "164 I don't know if true, but I read (here?) that the black turnout was higher than for the Obama elections."

What's been reported here is that the Dems turned out 92% of the Clinton vote and the GOP turned out 50% of the Trump vote.

Exit polls indicate that blacks voted 96% for Jones.

174 "It's just that our wish-casting and transposing our logic on to the voters vis a vis allowing the alternative to win (which they did) was illusory."

If that sinks in with our side, the loss will have been worth it. I've seen and heard too many who seemed to believe it would be easy from here on out.

On another story, though, I'm not so sure that Marcy Kaptur is wrong in "saying women invite sexual harassment by dressing provocatively." It sounds exactly like what my mother used to say to my sisters. My wife says it's what EVERY mother tells her daughters, at least if the mother is doing her job. And I do remember that, when I was in college, girls who dressed revealingly, but didn't ... well, you know... were accused of false advertising.

While the squirrels are nuisance ( drives my bichons nuts ), it's the porcupines I really hate. They are hell on crabapples, especially young ones.

233 U.S. judge orders special counsel to turn over evidence on Michael Flynn

A U.S. District Court judge ordered Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Tuesday to turn over any potential evidence that could be material for when he sentences President Donald Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

Flynn pleaded guilty earlier this month to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation during his interview in Mueller's probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russia.

Flynn has agreed to cooperate with Mueller's investigation. Moscow has denied interfering in the election and Trump has denied any collusion.

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan told the government in a filing to turn over any exculpatory evidence, known as "Brady" material, that could potentially help Flynn's defense or information that is "material either to the defendant's guilt or punishment."

The order by the judge is considered routine, and the government by law is required to turn over such information to the defense if it exists.

The entire point of the dear colleague letters and the fake "campus rape" study was two-fold. One was to create an anti-male, woman as savior thing and the second was to see if due process could be eliminated for certain things like "sexual assault." The left, being the left, would love to have control of concepts that would ruin people without due process.

Depends on what stage it is. I had a friend from my Navy days living in OH. He was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. I went to visit him in Nov, he died before Christmas and he had a lot of medical attention. If you catch it early they can fix it but no after is elevates..

252 Coulter is brilliant and a fighter for decades . She makes her points with stinging sarcasm.

I think her dalliance with Romney (and even briefly with Christie) is due to her insistence on immigration control being a central issue.

She is correct ... Americans are being systematically replaced, and without major "reform" demographics will turn us "commie". We have Trump to thank for driving that issue strongly, but implementation is "resisted" by GOPe.

savior thing and the second was to see if due process could be eliminated
for certain things like "sexual assault." The left, being the left,
would love to have control of concepts that would ruin people without
due process.


Yup. Think it's also the Left's attempt to corrupt normal heterosexual relationships (note there's no "rape epidemic" activism for same-sex hook-ups). Family is the strongest bulwark against the state power, so keep people single, unable to form functional, stable sexual relationships. Just look how the campus rape epidemic stuff puts the state firmly in place as the go-to authority for validating relationships, not just marriage. If you have a bad hook-up, call the authorities! Want to confirm consent, sign a form that can be later shown to the authorities. It's sick.

Oh give me a break, this is wrong, twice over. First, each election is a stand alone choice. You only support someone until someone better show up. (a lot like dating)

Also, not many Republicans actually voted for Jones. What happened was that only 50% of the Republicans who voted for Trump bothered to vote in this election, but 90% of the Democrats who voted for Hillary did. So that was the difference.

1. She's a political appointee, thus a political animal. They don't do things because they are the right thing to do. They do the right thing when forced to.

2. She a person of a certain age. It used to be you had to bankroll an investigative team who physically had to travel and look at physical documents scattered hither and yon. Nowadays, a great deal can be accomplished after work using one's spare time and an internet connection. She has not internalized this.

If the economy is still improving, and somewhat separately, the stock/bond markets still strong, R's could pick up seats. But it is still Establishment versus the rest of us, and RNC still wants the establishment.

Posted by: V the K at December 14, 2017 08:28 AM (S1Bhr)

My sons 22 and 26 knew Moore would lose, while I still thought he might pull it out. All of their "news" sources (and they're more conservative than I am, if that's possible) were all about Moore as "pedo."
Even my normally sensibe and rule-of-law husband was all freaked out over Moore "dating" teenagers when he was in his early 30s. Tried to explain to him that these girls' mothers were probably setting it all up in hopes of securing the assistant DA for Molly Sue. He was still repelled.
It's impossible to counteract the left-wing media meme for 95% of the population, my own home-horde included. You either see what the left does or you don't see it and run around being "principled." I don't know how to solve this. Maybe they'll figure it out in the camps or standing in front of the big ditch.

Posted by: dagny at December 14, 2017 09:04 AM (eO5CB)

Actually, in the mid-terms, they need to win something like 26 seats to take the majority, because they're defending so many. They can't allow a single loss and still need to take 2 of the 8 the GOP has in play.

Even with incumbency, that's far from likely, given that weak candidates like McCaskill are facing strong opponents this time around.

380 The thing about Moore is that his remarks about slavery were far worse than his record with women, but the dating thing was juicier so dems ran with that one. They could have nailed him with his opposition to the 13th amendment, though, and nailed the rest of the GOP too if they had wanted to.

Not to mention that Moore really did want to make homosexuality a jailable offense again, just like it was when he was a boy. And he wouldn't deny it when asked.

Exactly. I dismiss most news sources these days, but most don't and take everything they hear at face value. No one seems to internally processes to substaniate if what the heard is true. The media is not their to inform the public, but persuade them with chosen morsels of manufactued stories supporting a narrative. They are a propaganda organ and at times a weapon.

Eh. The Romans called the territory Palestine, a Latinization of "Philistine."

419 Even the Romans called the province Judea. Immediately north of Judea was Samaria, and north of that was Galilee, where Nazareth was.

The Brits invented the word "Palestine" as a derivation of "Philistea/Philistine" somewhere along the way, which is bizarre since the Philistines ceased being a recognizable group about 2800 years ago.

If you describe yourself in those terms, it means that you don't really follow things too closely, which means that you are ingesting the mainstream narratives without questioning them.

I have a link somewhere to the complete regs in pdf, memory fails. But yea, air rifles are classified as firearms. Possession without a license and use outside of approved ranges (including your property) are prosecuted and do fall under the Graves Act... mandatory sentencing.

Airsoft and paintball are legal on your property only (dont carry them plainview into the street), however if a neighbor report you using them on critters, NJ will find a way to prosecute.

Spud guns also. Classified as 'destructive devices' bring down the same heat as illegal firearm possession.

Use discretion, the local popo can make your life miserable over that bb gun.

437 Looked up official derivation - Emperor Hadrian created the province of Syria Paleestina to cover the entire region in 135 AD after he had put down the Bar Kochba revolt in Judea and banned all surviving Jews from entering the city of Jerusalem. (not that many survived that war)

So that's when it was started, and that's who did it.

He also burned Jerusalem to the ground, banned that name, and renamed it Aelia Capitolina, which I believe held until the Muslim conquests of the 7th century.

442 It's really simple. In politics, "flawed" means that the candidate is sufficiently vulnerable to the other side's inevitable attacks that his own base won't show up in enough numbers to win. Like Hillary. And Moore was, even before the "child rapist" crap started. There's a reason McTurtle's goons attacked Brooks, not Moore in the primary.

On the bright side, Mitchie Mitch didn't get what he wanted, and in a state we should win back. It would also help if our side understood we won't be getting EVERYTHING we want, too. But on that issue, it's the establishment which has been the more stubborn, so it's worth the loss to try to hammer that fact into their heads. Unfortunately, it'll probably take more lessons to do that.

Vote Jones - still no Obamacare repeal

Vote Moore - No border security, No immigration reform, instead we get DACA
Vote Jones - No border security, No immigration reform, instead we get DACA

Etc, etc, etc.

This will be the biggest issue in 2018 and the main reason that the Dims stand a good chance of winning the House and possibly the Senate.

Thats true. Before the democrats went full retard, I had friends on the other side of the divide and could have some reasonable, and pleasurable, discussions, but these days even questioning the roots of the narrative enrages them. After 9/11 and the GWB years, I lost most of those contacts.

If something crosses my path these days my response is usually "is it true?" Some are honest and claim the don't know and others apparently want to believe it regardless.

"I watch the Dems that come on Tucker, and almost every one is there to throw chaff. None are there to explain, discuss or enlighten."

I'm not saying get people to make things up, but in the past I think the GOP would stay away from pulling out all the stops to 'smear' a candidate. They remained noble and above such tactics, but they can't be shy anymore. If there is credible evidence a Dem did something, bring it to the fore and bring it hard. As some have mentioned here, this is war, and the GOP still plays pity-pat rules of engagement while the other side is using every trick in the bag. Unfortunately, it's now a zero sum game. Do you want to win or retain your 'principles' and lose? There are obviously some places you should not go, but the GOP on the spectrum needs to fight a little dirtier than it has been. I mean, we would have had President Clinton if one of the more noble guys like Jeb had won the GOP primary. Moore was just a frightening candidate for a number of reasons, but without the harassment stuff he probably would have won.

I do agree with the Dems I've seen on Tu-Ca. You can't get a straight, believable answer out of any of them, and sometimes I want him to pick them up by the pants and shirt and throw them off the set they are so talking-point oriented.

Posted by: The Gipper Lives at December 14, 2017 09:56 AM (m6qV1)

459 The Alabama election was a result of people insisting that a good option was not good enough, and thereby allowing a terribly flawed candidate to end up as the party's standardbearer.

McConnell is blameworthy because he interfered in a primary, because while Brooks would have been a good option, for McConnell he was not good enough and Luther Strange would have been better.

Many on the hard conservative side are blameworthy because Luther Strange would have been a good option, but for them he was not good enough and Brooks would have been better.

So a circular firing squad took place, and the last man standing was a guy any father on this board would slug in the mouth if he so much as looked at our teenaged daughters.

Sometimes, the perfect is the enemy of the good.

The idea that Luther Strange is some sort of RINO who would secretly support a leftist agenda is, quite frankly, idiotic. Strange would have been one of the 10 or 12 most conservative members of the Senate.

The idea that Mo Brooks could not have worked constructively with other Republican Senators is almost equally idiotic.

Next time, let's just have a clean primary, and not kill off good candidates for not being perfect,and then trying to rally around a pervert who was twice removed (rightly) from his state Supreme Court.

Whining about "the uniparty" is silly. The fact that this "Morning Report" on this very blog attacks Republicans and gives them stupid nicknames because they only agree with the hard right 90% of the time is silly. Pretending that there is no difference between Luther Strange and Doug Jones is beyond stupid.

And you know what else is stupid? Looking at a populist wave like we have not seen in many decades, and interpreting it as a mandate for either hard-right ideological conservatism OR establishmentarian tinkering around the margins.

They party has a chance for a genuine realignment. But only by embracing certain aspects of the populist ethos of the time, even at the expense of ideological purity. A prime example is the tax bill, which truly is unpopular. The Democrats are not lying about that. And it is unpopular because it includes things that should have been addressed later, if at all. Like the estate tax. And taxing grad school stipends.

What's with all the left virtue signalling. One of the stupidest things I see from the partial red field is the message "I'm not as bad as the crazy, racist and backward people on my side."

What a fucking effective message?!!

Meanwhile the left is all the time bringing us closer and closer to the "appeal" of Marxism.

Its times like these that if I didn't care about restoring Constitutional dialog between "sides" that I would completely abandon right-allied politics.

I just don't fucking get the urge to self-destruct. And participate in the narrative of the left, as long as they eat you last.

That's the one thing I have for Trump, is that as MOR as he has been in his politics, he doesn't spend a whole lot of time apologizing for people to the right of him. And when he needed Moore, he pulled for Moore.

And if nobody is able to come forth with any new allegations in most recent decades, Moore is at least a reformed teen-skirt-chaser. And as people have pointed out, nothing since he married.

The Dems acting like every teen girl that works on Capital Hill was in danger of a guy who hasn't had complaints in 30-40 years, was obvious distortion. But it's the type of distortion that I'm so used to on the left.

They don't think about how they can discuss an issue, they are always thinking how they can use one.

476 Problem is GOP gets cowed by the ridicule. "I am not a witch" is long gone, but "My grandmother had high cheekbones" is firmly ensconced and may run for president.

No Dem ever said Ted Kennedy is too toxic to run, even though he was responsible for a woman's death. Coulter assumes picking some straight laced GOP type wards off these embarrassments, but they are going to say anything about anybody. By her standards all the goofy things Trump said and did would have put him in McDonnell or Angle or Akin country yet he won.

I think he succeeded partly because of the issues but partly because he could turn the ridicule around and also partly because he didn't get cowed by the junk thrown his way.

480 Un-frickin-believable. I had to walk away from this thread some hours ago, light up the John Deere, and plow out the whole neighborhood (crippling four inch snowfall y'know), had a drink which for me means 3 drinks, set up dinner to simmer, and I come back and the thread is not POST HERE AND BE BANNED yet. That's one thing that keeps me coming back coming back coming back...

Thanks to all the smart-assed advice for my walnut-stealing squirls. Those are all like super-viable except for (1)presence of Law Enforcement, a couple of whom are acquaintances I'd prefer not to, put it delicately piss off, and; existence of theologically-motivated Don't Kill Nothin' advocates (could be worse, they're not "Activists" -- yet).

I have WORLD CLASS 12-gauges, and no shit an Anschutz air rifle. If this issue could be resolved by Arms, I'd be fat on walnuts by now.

Wife's "Home Farm" was occupied by her wheelchair-bound but .22-equipped aunt for 20 some years. Squirrels are extinct out there. When MIL comes to visit, she'll see one of the SOB's out the window while we're discussing World Affairs and such, and go "Look! A Squirrel!"

I love my MIL. She's cool, 86, and thinks I'm a young hottie. That right there is as close to belting her in da mouff as I ever get. Haven't, yet.

Quotes of The Day

Quote I

Voyager upon life's sea:—
To yourself be true,
And whate'er your lot may be,
Paddle your own canoe.
Dr. Edward P. Philpots

Quote II

Thy spirit, Independence, let me share!
Lord of the lion-heart and eagle-eye,
Thy steps I follow with my bosom bare,
Nor heed the storm that howls along the sky.
Tobias Smollett


Quote III

THOU of an independent mind,
With soul resolv’d, with soul resign’d;
Prepar’d Power’s proudest frown to brave,
Who wilt not be, nor have a slave;
Virtue alone who dost revere,
Thy own reproach alone dost fear,
Approach this shrine, and worship here.
Robert Burns

The ONT doesn't recall ever hearing the name Charles Jenkins. The ONT would have been just fine if we hadn't heard the name and looked him up. For every action there is an equal reaction.

Charles Jenkins, a former U.S. Army soldier who deserted to North Korea at the height of the Cold War, died Monday. He was 77.

Jenkins collapsed outside his home in Sado, in northern Japan, on Monday and was rushed to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, a group representing families of Japanese abductees to North Korea said Tuesday. He died of heart failure, according to local reports.

Jenkins, originally from Rich Square, N.C., disappeared in January 1965 while on patrol along the Demilitarized Zone dividing North and South Korea.

To be honest with you I'm shocked that Obama didn't bring him back home, give him The Presidential Medal of Freedom and kick in for a sex change operation.

*****

If you haven't been paying attention to the Global Warming, Global Cooling, Climate Change bullshit then you probably missed the story about the starving polar bear scavenging a dump for food.


Guess what? The polar bear population is doing just fine.

According to scientists, no study has indicated that there is reason to presume that the perspectives of community observers are either suspect or incorrect. In fact, there have been multiple occasions when traditional ecological knowledge gleaned from local populations accurately identified polar bear subpopulation trends before new scientific studies could be conducted to corroborate them (York et al., 2016).

The overwhelming conclusion from years of accumulated conversations with native populations about polar bears is that there is almost no connection between the long-term observations of polar bear ecology and the more recent claims that polar bears as a species are in grave danger due to climate change and thinning sea ice.

*****

If you had a vote for the "Word of The Year" what would it be? Does collusion get the nod from you?

Dictionary.com chose "complicit," Cambridge Dictionary chose "populism," and Collins went with "fake news" as the 2017 word of the year. "Collusion" would also have been a good choice; after all, it provided much of the impetus for three of the most tweeted activism hashtags on twitter: #Resist (1), #ImpeachTrump (3), and #NotMyPresident (6).

Collusion's WOTY credentials are stellar based just on online lookups and trends, plus it was ubiquitous throughout fake news all year, even if the act it inexplicably described – the Trump campaign colluding with Russia during the 2016 election – was illusory.

What happens when you don't attend shop class or say physics class. You become aGenius Award Winner.

A man who had apparently tried to steal wheels from a van was found dead Tuesday morning in Pittsburgh, with the vehicle on top of him, authorities said.

Pittsburgh police responded to the call about a fatal accident in Homewood at about 8:50 a.m.

Work place risk and reward succinctly stated.


*****

What are some of your Christmas traditions? A Colorado resident has a special tradition. Children are the recipients of the Christmas spirit.

For nearly a decade, an anonymous donor has bought every toy in the Fort Collins, Co. Goodwill so that any child who walks into the store leaves with something.

10 Baby Sister Update

Joyce came off the Optune device; she was just too miserable with it.

They meet with her oncologist on Monday to discuss other options (there actually *are* a few).

The balance is always quantity of life vs quality of life.

She is so brave.

OTOH: She had PT this morning and Hubby reports "she kicked it."

76 Here's how the Mueller and IG investigations will go.

There's probably a quid pro quo going on.

The IG will release a report that some bad things went on last year and this but nothing criminal and appropriate actions have already been taken.

Mueller will issue a report that the Russians tried to interfere with the election, Trump was associated with scuzzy people but there is no evidence of collusion.

The poetry is a nice touch. Classes the place up.

Kind of a mixed bag on the soldier who defected to North Korea. Looks like he was given a healthy dose of reality. Sounds like he made a bone headed decision when he was younger, then thought less of himself for the rest of his life- not to mention had to suffer for it. I have a certain amount of sympathy for the guy. Not a lot, but some.

Get the deposit done, go to eye place to get glasses adjusted, they are now closed on Wed. RRRR.

Get home and open the box.

Crap, my brother sent socks to my Dad who will be here for Christmas.

103 Hmmm. Physics.

So a person I know decided to remove the screens from their windows for the winter. Used a ladder to get the upper story screens. Window in question is above a concrete stoop. The ladder angle is too upright when the ladder base is on the stoop. This person grabs a sheet of plywood and places it on the stoop, hanging over the edge several feet, and puts the ladder on top of that. A little bit of suction under the plywood allows the plywood to support the ladder until the person climbs a rung or two.

Next came a trip to the emergency room for stitches to repair shins after sliding down the ladder.

The kicker? The screens can only be removed (without damage, anyway) from inside the house.

This is what happens when a person commits to a course of action and ignores any evidence that it just can't work.

And yet, I half expect her to revert to liberalism because she works on a college campus and listens to libs all day. she's a good person but pretty easily swayed by people around her - when it comes to politics,at least.

No, he sent me an email with three words: "is that gingham?"

I told him yes, but we didn't come up with that idea, the publisher did, so it wasn't meant as a jab at you. Because I honestly have no idea what the whole gingham thing is about.

175 U.S. judge orders special counsel to turn over evidence on Michael Flynn

A U.S. District Court judge ordered Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Tuesday to turn over any potential evidence that could be material for when he sentences President Donald Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn...

Sullivan told the government in a filing to turn over any exculpatory evidence, known as "Brady" material, that could potentially help Flynn's defense or information that is "material either to the defendant's guilt or punishment."

The order by the judge is considered routine, and the government by law is required to turn over such information to the defense if it exists.

Wikipedia, but kind of profound --

Gingham is a medium-weight balanced plain-woven fabric made from dyed cotton or cotton-blend yarn.[1] It is made of carded, medium or fine yarns, where the colouring is on the warp yarns and always along the grain (weft). Gingham has no right or wrong side with respect to color.

What an odd story. The norks let his wife and him leave. I thought they'd put you in the camps to die before letting anyone leave. They also forced him to marry the Japanese abductee. Gee, that's nice of them, but it's weird, even for norks.

Also odd how he didn't want to return even after serving his sentence. I guess he liked to feel special. A fish out of water.

They turned him down, but Carly's sister snuck away and banged him by herself, and that pissed Carly off.

Had a similar experience with Jane's Addiction.

the music scene in America often sucks balls. Iron Maiden? Meh. Helloween? Who?

But I got to see Helloween at the Gothic in Englewood a few years ago. 500 rabid fans. Helloween headlines the biggest metal shows on the planet. They sell out soccer arenas, a hundred thousand people. In other countries they are bigger than Black Sabbath. Fucking love Helloween. Much as I love Sabbath and Maiden, they would never do an American tour of small theaters like the Gothic.

And the band loved it every bit as much as we did. Fucking Pumpkin Guys!

we're all good at the moment. Littlest one is crawling all over the place. Cute as a button still. The other two are growing up just as fast.

Had a great time. Hoping to be able to do it next year as well.

That's pretty apt, especially seeing as one from each ended up in CSNampersandY. That was an interesting time. I like the fluidity of band members moving from group to group inventing classic rock along the way.

I discounted the Hollies because they're name sounded old fashioned, but I get them now.

It's like Paris in the '20s. Everyone lived in Laurel Canyon. Everyone slept or tried to sleep with Joni Mitchell and no one could hold her.

I've read that Mr. Venn quit diagramming because he couldn't keep up.

437 Our youngest daughter was an enthusiastic (vituoso?) bassoon player in HS band, but acute pancreatititis forced her to stop playing about 10 years ago. But she has never stopped talking about it. Though her pancreatitis has turned into the chronic type with chronic abdominal pain, we think she can at least get some pleasure (If not give a virtuoso performance) from her old passion.

We are giving her a bassoon for Christmas. We hope that she is as enthusiastic about receiving this present as we are in giving it to her.

Having this book in my possession also lends credence that I am not living some kind of schizophrenic dream. Y'all might just actually exist somehow.

Well, hell. Uncle Harvey has through a spokeshole, given a response to Selma Hayek's charges.

With all the shit (probably about 100 women, give or take) he's never said anything since the shit first hit the fan, but he has responded to Hayek.

He says "he doesn't recall" pressuring her to do the lesbo scene. And besides, the character she was playing was bi, so that was in context. And also, he wasn't there for the filming, so he wasn't there to look when she was nekkid for the scene.

Now, WTF. This could mean that of all the stories, Selma's is bullshit, so's he going to respond. But I don't know.

You put me some knowledge there, thanks. So, earthstone. Is it shades of blue and green? One real beautiful copper mineral is covellite. It's a metallic sulfide mineral that is semi-transparent.

Those complaints of hers didn't amount to squat, anyway.

All I can see she was complaining about was that he pestered her for normal and weird sex and that he tried to stop her crappy movie from being made. I wish he had succeeded at the latter. Frida was not very good ... and that doesn't even take into account the fact that it was a love story for Communism, either.

Salma Hayek called him her "monster" and talked about how she was abused and felt guilty and all this shit ... and then all she could come up with was that he used his salad fork to eat his mashed potatoes.

Earthstone is mostly greens (malacite etc.) with some blue azurite, a few quartz micros in little caves, some brown/black tenorite. Covellite, terrific, I cut alot of it - best is Butte, MT and Colorado. Properly oriented, the plate-like crystals reflect back an incredible purple. There are some tricks of the lapidary trade to accentuate the purple (quartz caps, for example). But you have to have the plate like crystal structure. The massive stuff, for example, RSA, won't give the effect.
For fun, with a reflecting light microscope, check out Vivianite crystals from Bolivia or Madagascar - dichroic- and paper thin plates comprising the crystal.

I will have to look for Vivianite and Sugilite, next time I am near a rock shop. I might still have some specimens of Covellite, mixed with Bornite, that came from a small mine one of my relatives operated in B.C. Also some ruby silvers, which show the same optical effect in deep red.

"Nikki Haley stuck a knife in his back': Trump loyalist Roger Stone is ALREADY writing a book about 'the President's downfall' and believes he will be ousted by members of cabinet".


I guess it is from a Vanity Fair interview. Thing is, Roger Stone is rather a wing nut. He says a lot of off the wall stuff. There are a lot of things to comment on here, but it's late, so I won't.

I'll say this though...Nikki Haley did not stick a knife in Trump's back; she said exactly the right thing at the UN. She's been brilliant in that position.

While there has been no shortage of knives, Haley is not the one I would worry about using them. Thus far, she has seemed superb in what she is doing. Considering in the early days, some wondered if she was a GOPe plant, that is a pleasant surprise.

Certainly her tone has been nice- pretty John Boltonish.

Nikki was my guv, and I voted for her twice. I did get a little ticked at her with the flag stuff and other weaseling politician behavior, such as during the primary denouncing Donny Two Scoops.

But she's a home gal, and thus I rooted for her, and am proud of her at the UN so far.

Less than 8 years ago, she started out as a small time state legislator. She went a long way in a short time, and has made the big time. Again, proud of a home girl.

486 I finally looked at the Arizona shooting Insomniac & others were speaking about. It really was an execution.

I know we've all seen videos of bad cop shootings, but this is the worst in my recent memory. A guy crying and begging in a hotel hallway, on the ground, for his life. Doing everything the cop said.

In the other bad shootings there have at least been knives, or drugs, or some extenuating circumstances. None of those things apply here.

There were other officers there. Why didn't one go cuff him? This is all kinds of disturbing.

No wonder they held the tape back for 2 years.

522 Bruce. My contention is that it's another war on men. This really ramped up with the Harvey Weinstein accusations, which sound legit and now everyone of these accusations is believed. I'm guessing that a lot of them are true but not all. My problem is that there isn't a trial. They are just guilty. That's a lot of power in the hands of anyone who wants to accuse someone.
Not a fan of Roy Moore but do hope he pursues litigation against his accusers. It has to stop.
I'm done cheering very attack against a lefty. It won't stop with them.

He has nothing to lose. Might as well stay. Not like the Dems are going to fight very hard to get rid of him, as long as he remains a reliable vote.

It reminds me of Warren Buffet's pretend donation of $30 billion or whatever it was. It was a major headline and he gave interviews about how he was such a great guy for donating all that money ... but when the next "Richest Man in the World" list came out, Buffet was still there at the top with 'all his money'. What about the $30 billion he just claimed to have given away? LOL. As if he gave one red cent to anyone. He just announced that he was "going to" give that money away ... after his dipshit ass was dead, but he was all happy and proud to take credit for being so philanthropic, NOW, as if he was letting go of any control of any bit of his fortune. No ... he just wasn't giving anything to his retarded kids. That was about it.

Yup. A week later she posted on FB "Going to say goodbye to someone I never met". We called her and said "What the hell?" and she started spouting "My body, my choice" crap. "It is unfair to bring a child into this world when I am not prepared." We made it very clear to her that we would give her whatever help she needed, even take the baby. "You have no right to tell me what to do with my body!" Apparently she went to PP and got "counseled". We have disowned her.

According to the DM, it was the typical Harveying. Take a shower with me, give me a massage, etc, etc, for years.

She also blames him for making her do a lesbo scene or something. Now, that's sort of ridiculous -- she wasn't forced. She didn't have to do it. She says she didn't mind it really, but what made her sick was Harv would see her nekkid.

So he didn't rape her, or grope her, I don't think. I can sort of sympathize with her, but she could have told him to go fuck himself. But she didn't, for her career.

Has any man, any man in recorded history, ever uttered the phrase "my body" in this sort of context.

Now consider, e.g., professional athletes, for whom this could be relevant. "After N concussions, I've decided to retire for the sake of my body." (See, e.g., Mike Matheny.) Yet you never hear that.

When women say "my body" what they really mean is "my cooch." Which of course is not relevant to male athletes, nor event to female ones in the non-reproductive context. Has anyone ever heard, e.g., Lindsay Vonn bleating that she won't compete because only she decides what she does with her "body?" No.

There ya go.

If a woman is assaulted and someone attempts to rape her, she has two choices:

1. Fight back
2. Don't fight back.

Pretty simple really. Choose. Option 1 or option 2.

The GOP chooses not to fight back. They choose option 2 every single time.

They use their "ethics and morality" to simply... lay back, take it and live another day.

Has any man, any man in recorded history, ever uttered the phrase "my body" in this sort of context.

Now consider, e.g., professional athletes, for whom this could be relevant. "After N concussions, I've decided to retire for the sake of my body." (See, e.g., Mike Matheny.) Yet you never hear that.

When women say "my body" what they really mean is "my cooch." Which of course is not relevant to male athletes, nor event to female ones in the non-reproductive context. Has anyone ever heard, e.g., Lindsay Vonn bleating that she won't compete because only she decides what she does with her "body?" No.

466 The age of consent isn't the issue, the fact of him being a pastor - a spokesman for The Most High - is the issue.

There are some women, and I've met some who were were in their early thirties, who really REALLY want that connection with G-d. A pastor, if he'd wanted to, could take advantage of that. If he was weak, like I think Don Johnson was weak, it might feel like it went the other way.

I think he's to blame, because if you're weak you shouldn't be pastor, but I also think he's tragic.

And he has been "doing without" for months. While getting berated about shit that he has no control over.

And this girl who looks like his high school cheerleader dreams , makes it known that "she is available".

So he fails.

And she talks.

And he commits suicide.

I don';t think an actual affair is alleged, just that he kissed and "fondled" her. A 17 year old ... meh. That's between he and his wife, if anything happened, as far as I'm concerned.

--------------------

There are more than one of those stories that have happened locally over the years. Pastor gets caught ministering a little too intimately to one of the women. I remember one where it split up the church. Big internal fight after it happened.

And then one I remember particularly. Well. A preacher was caught up in one of those "lewd conduct" "wide-stance" stings at a local interstate rest area restroom.

Now, I haven't heard about it lately, but it used to be those in particular would get to be hang outs for the queering. You know, glory hole anonymous gay sex. Why they chose the rest areas, I don't know.

But, every so often, they'd do a sting to try to clean it up.

Anyway, one time it was a preacher caught up. That was not pretty.

I've met people who have lost family members to suicide. It is hard to know what to say. But the ones I have met are all impacted by it; and to not at least acknowledge their loss, and their lost one, seems cold to me. If it was a cancer death, I'd offer condolences on that. Clinical depression also has a fatal stage if treatment is not successful.

594 in the early 90's, I was dealing with a roommate who turned out to be nuts. she believed her "recovered memories" revealed her parents had been in a cult that sexually abused and murdered thousands of kids. when I questioned her, she became convinced I was part of the cult. I read a great book about the satanic cult craze called "The Return of the Furies" and I was so impressed with it I called the author to talk about my roommate and we were on the phone for over an hour.

he called his book "The Return of the Furies" because the Furies were goddesses of vengeance in Greek mythology. they were overcome when the goddess Athena convinced them to become goddesses of justice, not vengeance. according to the author, that represented the birth of the rule of law in Western Civilization and the people driving the whole satanic cult craziness (the media, feminists and medical quacks) were bringing the Furies of vengeance back and destroying the rule of law and justice ie the basis of Western Civilization.

I've been thinking about that a lot lately. Because the Furies are back once again. at heart, this is another attack on Western Civilization by destroying due process.

PBS Suspends Tavis Smiley Over Sexual Harassment Complaint

Too bad.


"Effective today, PBS has indefinitely suspended distribution of 'Tavis Smiley,' produced by TS Media, an independent production company," the public broadcaster said. "PBS engaged an outside law firm to conduct an investigation immediately after learning of troubling allegations regarding Mr. Smiley. This investigation included interviews with witnesses as well as with Mr. Smiley. The inquiry uncovered multiple, credible allegations of conduct that is inconsistent with the values and standards of PBS, and the totality of this information led to today's decision."

...

The investigation found that Smiley had engaged in sexual relationships with multiple subordinates. Some witnesses interviewed expressed concern that their employment status was linked to the status of a sexual relationship with Smiley. In general, they described Smiley as creating a verbally abusive and threatening environment that went beyond what could be expected in a typical high-pressure work environment. Several expressed concerns about retaliation.


Meanwhile, three women say music mogul Russell Simmons raped them, and another women complains of other "violent sexual behavior."

So I don't know about you but I want to sit close, lean in, and hear these icons' wisdom.

21 @JJ, technically that "rape room" was not an actual rape room. There were people at the restaurant who called it that, but no one says that guy actually sexed anyone else. Kind of like Warren Moon - no sex alleged, but you have to sleep in his bed in a neon thong on business trips.

It seems Russell Simmons is accused of rape-rape, and a rape room where you just put your tongue in a chicks mouth isn't getting it done.

37 JJ, technically that "rape room" was not an actual rape room. There were people at the restaurant who called it that, but no one says that guy actually sexed anyone else. Kind of like Warren Moon - no sex alleged, but you have to sleep in his bed in a neon thong on business trips.

It seems Russell Simmons is accused of rape-rape, and a rape room where you just put your tongue in a chicks mouth isn't getting it done.

"New York restaurateur Ken Friedman allegedly has a rape room in an eatery that he co-owns with entertainer and former crack dealer Jay-Z." _ J.J. Sefton

...the New York Times, describing the omerta that existed among staffers at his restaurant, who inevitably accepted the harassment as part of a job that offered many perks, including great pay and bonuses in the form of concert tickets and other in-demand items. _ Zero Hedge


In other words they prostituted themselves and now want fifteen minutes of fame with a vig.

"Rattus Norvegicus." Also the song "Golden Brown" which was featured in "Snatch" and "Peaches" from the opening of "Sexy Beast."
