The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“Nowhere but America do horrific large-scale mass shootings happen with this degree of regularity. This must stop.” Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn."

Quote II

"We welcome you as the leader of the Palestinian people here today. But I will decline the advice I was recently given by your top negotiator, Saeb Erekat. I will not shut up. Rather, I will respectfully speak some hard truths. The Palestinian leadership has a choice to make between two different paths. There is the path of absolutist demands, hateful rhetoric, and incitement to violence. That path has led, and will continue to lead, to nothing but hardship for the Palestinian people." U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley

Quote III

If a lower court treated another right so cavalierly. I have little doubt that this Court would intervene. But as evidenced by our continued inaction in this area, the Second Amendment is a disfavored right in this Court.” Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas

Quote IV

I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it. Evelyn Beatrice Hall

A Big Mac value meal in Australia is $9.55.

The same meal here in the USA is $5.99.

So why nearly a $4 difference between the two meals? Australia is paying burger flippers $20+/hour.

Wages for service sector jobs tend to be much higher than in Canada, where the dollar currently trades at par with the Australian currency. Entry-level fast-food workers, for example, are paid $20.08 an hour as a base hourly wage. Pay goes up to $25.10 on Saturday, $29.12 on Sunday, and overtime hours are $30.12 for the first two hours and $40.16 for each hour thereafter. On top of this, employers pay 9.5 per cent of wages to every employee's nominated retirement fund. Workers who are non-permanent "casual" employees are generally paid a further 25 per cent of their wages on top of these amounts.

Do you remember when the USA pulled out of the climate control scam Paris Accords? Oh my the shock and anger expressed towards PDT and us deplorables. The rest of the world is pretty quiet with other nations breaking the Paris Accord.

Indeed, the entire E.U. is on track to fall short of promised reductions, according to the European Environment Agency. So are Japan and Australia. Mexico and South Africa are among the nations who, according to the Climate Action Tracker, are guilty both of promising insufficient reductions and of failing to meet even those promises.

For the money they are charging, all of the students should get a top bunk at this camp School. UIC professors want to exclude objectionable opinions.

“The university should model inclusion for a country that is reeling from the consequences of racism, xenophobia, and hate.”

Tattoos are forever. Perhaps a little research is in order.

When picking out a tattoo, many people decide to go with a word that means something to them, only written in Chinese or Japanese. The problem with that is if you don't speak those languages, you have to trust someone else more familiar with the foreign tongue. Usually that's fine, but it turns out, sometimes it's not, as Alan Wong recently learned.

Wong was taking a flight when he glanced at his seatmate's ankle and saw a word in Chinese and Japanese that probably doesn't say what it's owner thinks it does.

Billy Graham Dies at Age 99





Of course, the left being the left, there had to be some performative viciousness. Lauren Duca, who works for Teen Vogue, the magazine that published the teenager's guide to anal sex, decided she wanted a little attention today.

By the way, Lauren Duca -- supposedly a feminist -- named her column "Thigh-High Politics."

I've noticed that these feminists -- so fearful of the Male Gaze (gaze, I said) -- sure seem to market themselves nigh-exclusively with come-higher titles and bedroom branding. Jessica Valenti's books have titles like "Full Frontal Feminism" and "Sex Object" -- I guess she's totally afraid of the male gaze, guys. (I said gaze.)

What's next for Lauren Duca and her tittilating-title act? Will she pitch a "news" show to Hulu titled Lauren Duca's Sultry Vagina? Will she launch a new book called Face Down Ass Up Feminism by Lauren Duca?

If you guys are so insistent that your sexuality is your own and not for the delight of the male gaze (GAZE, I said!), why are you so relentless in branding yourselves with sex?

Oh, and don't say the patriarchy in the publishing world is forcing you to. The publishing world is 80% young upper-middle class white girls who are uptightly feminist, just like you.

Not their identity... but ACTIONS are something you choose to do...

There was a reason I was a polite Young Man... I knew my Mother and Father would correct my actions... one way or another...

It seems however that MY Generation did not raise a Generation of reasonable people...

50 Laura Hillenbrand's biography "Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption" contains a very moving section where the formerly heroic Louis Zamperini, by now a miserable alcoholic, has his life completely turned around after his wife eventually persuades him to attend a 1949 Crusade of Billy Graham in Los Angeles -- where Zamperini made a life-changing decision for Christ.

88 RIP.

The new season of the Crown had a nice portrayal of Billy Graham. Implies the Queen was quite taken by him and they possibly became good friends.

Being a show written by leftists, she seeks spiritual counsel from him after she is reeling from the revelations about her uncle in the Marburg Files, and she is left dissatisfied. But to be fair, she gave him no particulars! I'm sure had she told him that she found out her Uncle was a Nazi sympathizer and traitor to the British and French people, responsible for the deaths of hundreds if not thousands, Graham would have given her a more nuanced answer than "Jesus says to forgive everyone." Could not leave out a small but benign Christian dig there, could you show. Ah well.

1) Accused Graham of spreading fiction.
2) Assured anybody that he was receiving his judgment.

I can't figure that out. Christianity is supposed to be so negative for the idea of final judgment and eternal punishment, but this lady apparently believes in a judgment after death--despite thinking that the entire text of Christianity is fiction!

It's kind of like saying "Burn in hell--because you taught that people were going to HELL!"

108 I am Catholic, so Billy Graham used to be a "meh Protestant southern preacher ~ not much there" kind of guy to me. But since reading up and getting older and listening more (and having an asinine, false commie pope inhabiting St Peter's Throne in place of our actual Pope to deal with myself) I had found that Billy was more of a theologian than I gave him credit for, and a good man, nay, a great man, because despite his position he seemed to always be, not humble, but normal. And to think he ministered to or met and spoke to (and obviously gave advice and guidance to) every President since Truman? Very impressive.

May the angels guide hin to the side of the Lord may he be with him in eternity. Requiescat in pace.

Charlotte-born evangelist Billy Graham will be portrayed by his own grandson, Will, in an upcoming movie. Its focus: How Louie Zamperini -- the Olympian and POW whose life story was told in the best-selling book, "Unbroken" -- embraced Christianity after returning from World War II.

Filming on "Unbroken: Path to Redemption" began Tuesday at Universal City in southern California.

My answer tends to be "I don't know". I didn't believe in any gods once, and the Holy Spirit guided me to a revelation--sometimes more driving like cattle. I tend to follow that up with "You could beat me to heaven for all you know."

I once had a college instructor who told me that as a young agnostic, I didn't know what I would be when I was 30. I smirked and shook my head I was NEVER going to be a BELIEVER again. He was so much more right than I. It only took me until 27.

I am Catholic, so Billy Graham used to be a "meh Protestant southern
preacher ~ not much there" kind of guy to me. But since reading up and
getting older and listening more (and having an asinine, false commie
pope inhabiting St Peter's Throne in place of our actual Pope to deal
with myself) I had found that Billy was more of a theologian than I
gave him credit for, and a good man, nay, a great man, because despite
his position he seemed to always be, not humble, but normal. And to
think he ministered to or met and spoke to (and obviously gave advice
and guidance to) every President since Truman? Very impressive.



May the angels guide hin to the side of the Lord may he be with him in eternity. Requiescat in pace.

That's the new Jacobinism.

The Jacobins drank in Rousseau. Since every man was good, and society is the only thing that makes him bad, all of society had to be gotten rid of--especially Christianity! So they overthrew the king and put in the Committee of Public Safety. Then they started in on their societal structure, and taking down nobility. "The Mountain" was adamant that all the nobles needed to die. The Girondins were not so certain---sooooo all the Girondins were beheaded after the last noble was executed. Thomas Paine--who had long been respected--was put in jail and awaiting execution for being friendly to the Girondins.

243 Billy Graham was kin, of a sort. My grandfather's cousin married his sister, I think.

I always wanted to meet him, so I could ask if he remembered the young pastor who acted as a chaperone for his sister and her boyfriend. Pity that I will never be able to do that, now.

256 Billy Graham would be praying for Lauren Duka if he were alive and aware of her existence. He would pray with her and tell her that God could take away her anger and angst and bring her peace instead. Instead, he is joyful in God's loving embrace now and she will continue being hateful until some one else shows her God's grace of her own hubris brings her to her knees and an understanding of God's will.

I think The Shat is liberal but he stays apolitical in public. He just recently dressed down a dem candidate in a Texas who had posted a photo of her and him taken at a comic con as part of her campaign . He told her to take it down immediately. She responded that it was not put up to indicate an endorsement but that she was making a point of her nerdy interests. He responded again to take it down. I don't think she likes the Shat anymore if you read her apology tweet.

I gotta wonder how much longer a movement can last when they go after
Billy Graham on the day he dies. We have to be close to peak crazy.

--

I fear we're far from peak crazy, unfortunately.

I heard early this morning of Rev. Graham's passing. My first thoughts were how insignificant I felt in the shadow of such a great man. How godly, righteous and good he was. And how I pale, so flawed, in comparison. The world was a better place with him in it, and he is now home in eternal peace.

Later on, I read those tweets at Twitchy from this Duca woman. I was frozen in disbelief at her words. I don't think I've ever read anything so vile. So evil. I simply can't fathom the unhinged hatred. I know there are those people (many here even) who find the grace to pray for the likes of her and those like her. I find that...so difficult.

He criticized her for using words that she obviously didn't understand in some article she wrote in Teen Vogue. She was being a total b!tch, natch, and Tu-Ca finally lost his temper and told her that she needed to stick to writing about what she knew: namely, thigh-high boots! He cut the mic on her while she was calling him a male chauvinist pig.

He sliced like a hammer and it was truly a thing of beauty watching him peal away her pretensions and show her to be semi-literate.

islam in a bad sector of a mid-east town.

Posted by: auscolpyr at February 21, 2018 07:54 PM (pzA2L)

=========================
IIRC, the incident took place in Beirut in a neighborhood run by a fascist gang. Hitchens saw the gang leader's face on a poster, and to the horror of his party (who begged him not to do it), Hitchens tore it down and began to tear it up, "began" being the operative word. The gangsters rallied quickly and Totten's group got out just in time.

Spent four formative years in Japan as a youth.

Those Shinto priests blessing the Sumo wrestling matches on TV made a big impression on me, as did the Shinto temples and the overall culture. My Mom was big on flower arranging, and my Dad played a lot of koto music for my education.

This was before Japanese culture went all weird and anime.

"Why?"

"Because wayciss, and hatred, and blah blah blah"

... then I committed the grievous, heinous act of actually, you know... listening to Billy Graham once.

People live in a damned bubble too often. It's very easy to do, especially if you've never been shown otherwise, and you've been trained in school like a Pavlovian test subject to respond a certain way to certain people.

The opposite holds true for some figures as well.

Newsweek: Definitely Believe All Women, But, By the Way, Al Franken Was Taken Out by RUSSIAN Bots Who Lie

You may have seen this grotesque left-wing conspiracy theory from the laughable gutterblog Newsweek, which claims that Leanna Tweeden was some kind of frame-up pawn of a "botnet" campaign.

Oh, and if you're old enough, you may remember that the authoress Nina Burleigh said she would gladly give Bill Clinton a blowjob to keep abortion legal/mandated, and that all American women should get out their "kneepads" to service him with gratitude.

The #MeToo movement has a disturbing tendency of claiming to believe all women but then calling victims of liberal politicians liars, dupes, maniacs, or pawns.

Here's a digest of what Nina Burleigh claimed, based on the claims made by some fly-by-night group posting on the Medium open forum blog, as well as the leftwing propaganda outfit Raw Story, for crying out loud.

In 19 February 2018, both the news magazine Newsweek and news blog RawStory.com posted stories cribbing from a blog post on Medium.com by "Unhack the Vote," which reported the #MeToo movement had been co-opted by a network of right-wing Internet trolls and Kremlin-controlled social media bots to force Al Franken, a former Democratic senator from Minnesota, to resign.

...

Although the gist of the stories was that Democrats had been duped into pushing Franken out by a propaganda operation run by Russia and the alt-right, the accuracy of these stories is being challenged. They reported that the attack against Franken was orchestrated in part by "weaponizing" an article by author and writer Ijeoma Oluo to hasten his downfall. But both Oluo and a researcher who tracks Russian-influenced social media activity told us the reports got key details wrong.



This is what she said after first being rebutted by Snopes and the person whose post she misconstrued:



But now the #FakeNews clearlinghouse Newsweek now says it has to retract the story after being unable to verify the claims made in this absurd article, "after further review."

After further review? You're implying you did some review before publishing?

I'd imagine that's as much a lie as most of your other content.

The sassy sissy Shep Smith was just sparkling as he reported right-wing conspiracy theories about "crisis actors" involved in the Parkland school shooting protests -- think he'll have a word to say about this unhinged leftwing conspiracy theory?

The answer is "No," obviously. Leftwingers are permitted to post #FakeNews and conspiracy theories without ever being castigated for them. After all, true or not, sane or insane, they help the cause. And exposing the left for its fake news and conspiracy theories would hurt the cause, so they're just covered up, and the leftwing faithful are knowingly permitted to keep on believing untrue things because the truth doesn't matter to the left, and indeed never has -- only the cause of bringing Sovietism to the US matters.

Ironically enough -- given that they're pretending so hard to be anti-Soviet these late strange days.

Here's CNN scolding the "David Hogg is a crisis actor" conspiracy theorists, calling that claim "a lie."

Do you think they'll similarly call Nina Burleigh, Raw Story, Medium, or Newsweek liars? Will they be castigated for injecting viciously false conspiracy theories into the body public?

Or do you think they'll just pretend this didn't happen?

I think ultimately the people "buying" this tripe are already fully paid up subscribers to begin with. Nobody's mind is really being changed, they're just preachin' to the choir and trying to get as much ad revenue as possible.

41 I think Hogg among others are clearly being coached and handed lines to say, but I also think they are genuinely upset and emotionally traumatized by the events last week. I don't think anyone paid them to lie about their beliefs, they're just being carefully polished so they are more effective in their crusade.

The Newsweek thing though... so pathetic. The left was overjoyed by this, I gave it a bit of passing mockery yesterday without realizing people were relying on Newsweek for the story. At this point, the Weekly World News is more reliable.

An expose was published today by Newsweek on why they are being investigate - sounded like some local attempts at influence peddling by Olivet Ministries through Newsweek, not sure if it was anything criminal, but whatever -

anyway the subtext of that piece they ran was just how much the management and the writers hate and loathe each other now. I got the feeling that each side would love to burn the whole thing to the ground just to spite the others. Probably will happen.

The fault here was the law enforcement that didn't do right by those kids. Load it up on them, not the young people who are young and foolish, and ignore the "take away guns" arguments. They are irrelevant distractions.

142 I believe kids are being groomed by 3 letter agencies in our commie districts to be fast tracked into the administrative state. It's happened in all other totalitarian leaning states of the present and past so why not in our country which has strong areas of totalitarianism in certain blue counties and districts? Serious question and thought to consider. There is nothing conspiracy about it, it's just the way totalitarians and totalitarian leaning states behave. We have a 100 year history and pattern to look back on. If this was a courtroom this would be admissible evidence, for what I know as somebody in the shit the past 5 years.

It's a unproven proposition that it does no good. What metric are you using? Awfully hard to say one way or another if it influences some portion of the country.

And, there may be some value in not only pushing back on the leftist narratives, but there may be some in refusing to retreat from any territory. Why cede anything to the left?

Do you think Breitbart's idea that politics is downstream from culture is wrong?

The left has proven itself remarkable prone to beclowning itself on a routine schedule. At the very least it's more entertaining than 90% of TV.

192 From teh previous thread:

"328 In Massachusetts, btw, you don't have to change states just change towns.

In Massachusetts, we are required to seek approval from the local chief of police for a LTC, license to carry.

When I lived there there were towns that would not issue a LTC, full stop. Other would. It's all in the discretion of the chief of police.

Not much different in CT either. Your inherent unalienable rights depend on the climate of the police office in your town."

This is actually governed by state law. Most states now are "shall issue," meaning a requester receives a permit unless there is a legitimate, stated reason not to issue it. MA and CT are "may issue," meaning the designated local authority (police chief or sheriff) issues permits solely at his or her discretion.

Here's part of a tweet-thread posted last week by the guy who wrote the Medium article Newsweek cited:


#unhackthevote
Catch 22
In order to fix our Election System we must vote out the people that have built this system to make sure they are not voted out.
So how de we do this?

Gerrymandering helped keep them in office

The fact his Dad also has some weird role with the FBI when the FBI is being heavily criticized to the point there is likely a major shake up.

So why not make this about guns instead, and oh look, one of our employees has a son that was at the school. Let's give him some talking points. Watch the dad get a big promotion when this is all over.

I just think its clear he's being coached and groomed to push a certain message.

207 Compared to peers, Hogg comes across as polished, perhaps rehearsed. It seems likely that this is a career choice he started training for previously and now he's, opportunistically, applying for a job.

So the press will gravitate to him because he puts himself out there and doesn't use "err", "um", "you know", and "like" as the main body of any commentary. They may also gravitate to him because he makes a narrative of which they approve.

Whatever, but for the first few hours of the actual event, I've ignored the coverage because it is a political football. It's not news; it's agenda and spin. And if the MFM is engrossed with it, then it's pretty much errors and lies.

I'd rather ignore the Olympics.

A couple of years ago I saw Mr. Mom and it holds up fairly well. I hadn't seen it in years. It's interesting to see what things looked like back in the 1980s.

One thing I noticed is how awful everyone looked, with the exception of Teri Garr. Everyone looked rumpled and looked like they were twenty years older than they actually were in real life.

My girlfriend thought my observation was hilarious, but it's true. The people in that movie look pretty beat up. Maybe it's all the smoking or something.

The leftists always want to change the rules/procedures after they lose. See, e.g., Massachusett's decision to hold special elections for a vacant Senate seat instead of having the (then) Republican governor appoint someone. Only to have a Republican (sorta) win the first special election, while a Dem was governor. You have to laugh.

The left always skates to where the puck is, rather than where it is going. If they ever do away with the Electoral College, I fully expect a later election will be won by a Republican winning the popular vote but would have lost in the Electoral College. Then the left will want the Electoral College back.

314 The propaganda organs' transition to active participants in the political process happened some time back, and oppression of non-communist opponents really isn't new.

What's new is how batshit fucking crazy their stories have become, and how many people (wait another generation if America lasts that long and you can use "most") lap up this unhinged lunacy. Franken is out of the Senate because he was caught on film. Period. Full stop. End of story. Not because he is a loathsome cocksucker or anything else. I'm not even certain the photo should have caused him to resign. But the Deep State propaganda organs can still breathlessly blame it all on Russian bots and not only will some Red speech commissar not go "ummm," but roughly thirty or so percent of the public who dutifully can be depended upon to vote Communist Democrat will embrace the madness.

I really don't want the United States to break apart, and particularly before I check out of this world, but it's coming. If you can make a third of the country believe this bullshit, your plans for a communist utopia are well within grasp.

And the only witness making the rounds was a Muslim immigration lawyer who happen to have his family there that day for a meal. Oh and all the street cameras were turned off or turned away that day.

Trump Holds "Listening Session" With Those Affected by School Shootings

It's been on a while, but it's continuing.

Earlier, one kid pushed the #FakeNews claim that someone had purchased an AR-15 in five minutes without an ID -- the lie he got from liar Chris Cuomo -- and then that same kid called, essentially, for Australian's gun confiscation plan to be brought to the US:

"I can't feel comfortable in my country knowing that people have, will have, are ever going to feel like this," he said. "I want to feel safe at school."

Zeif said Australia had a school shooting in 1999, but people came together, and crafted legislation, and there hasn't been a school shooting since.

Julia Cordover, the student body president of Marjory Stoneman Douglas, said whatever the case, more must be done.

Note that CBS avoids noting the "Australian plan" was in fact a nearly-100%-confiscation plan and also edits out this kid's regurgitation of the bought-an-AR-15-in-five-minutes-without-an-ID lie. They omitted that because if they printed it, they'd have to note that it was in fact false, and the leftist media almost never reports that conspiracy theories and #FakeNews claims made by their leftwing allies (and leftwing colleagues like Chris Cuomo) are false. They prefer letting the leftwing faithful continue believing them.

Posted by: Deplorable Redneck Bitter Clinger at February 21, 2018 05:22 PM (iiixZ)

32 The killer was able to buy a rifle because the Broward school board and police have a diversion program to prevent the arrests of high school kids caught committing crimes. The program dates back to the Obama/Holder push to eliminate "disparate outcomes," and includes throwing away or concealing evidence of felonies.

If not for the diversion program, the kid would have been arrested and thereafter failed a firearms background check. Political correctness caused the massacre.

It was the Port Arthur shooting in a tourist area, not a school shooting (he must be confusing it with the Dunblaine shooting in the UK. Facts matter.)

There have been mass shootings Down Under. Only they changed it to 5 or more dead to qualify. Here in the US the anti-gun orgs consider 4 or more injured as a mass shooting. Note I said injured, not shot.

Lastly, the 'gun confiscation' in Australia only got 22% of the KNOWN guns. There are almost as many guns in Oz than before the 'confiscation'. That doesn't include the ones hidden away.

well, the diversion program is mostly for minorities, so they have something of a dilemma on their hands.

do you stop school violence or keep minorities from getting booted out of schools they will never graduate from?

suppose the third option is to keep the violent kids in school and hope they will eventually shoot enough people up to get guns banned.

One of the last guys, his son murdered in Sandy Hook, I believe he said, made great points. He and the school took their own action, which was all about pinpointing the symptoms of the kids that might become violent and training the students to see it too. Great speech. He said it works.

This will have huge negative consequences for their future, far more than the incredibly remote possibility of being shot in a school. It has already degraded their lives and will undoubtedly continue to do so unless something radical is done and fast. But not one these little Red Barbarians is the least bit interested in that.

well, both of those changes, assault rifle to assault style rifle, and gun control to gun safety, are good indicators for people that do not want to ban semi-automatic rifles and or have increased gun restrictions.

222 Actually the reason Australia did that is because the politicians felt threatened. Aussie gun culture was far more organized than the US, into militias organically attached to the military. Partly that was due to the Chinese menace.

250 Flake & Feinstein are introducing a bill to require buyers of AR's to be at least 21 years old. My guess is that will pass.

Have they come up with a sufficiently non-vague definition of what an "AR-15" is? Recall that the '94 AWB tried to ban a list of guns by name and also included some verbiage about "substantiallly similar" models. Circumventing the former was simply a matter or renaming your products. The courts (don't think it went all the way to SCOTUS) ruled that "substantially similar" was unconstitutionally vague. So we got left with the "list of naughty bits" like pistol grips, flash hiders, and things that go up. So what exactly is this new billl going to regulate?

262 It's like this, son. When we're talking about legal reforms or modifications or reinterpretations of the Constitutional provisions, you've come to the adult world. Now, we're happy to hear what you have to say, but in the adult world we've been told that we should STOP fearing Islamic terror and Illegal alien criminals because even though the numbers are high, the percentage of one of us being killed in such a way, are quite low. It doesn't make us feel safe, but our social betters--people who like to think of themselves as our parents--have determined that we should just stop feeling scared--that it's our problem and some behavioral maladjustment in us.

So, you'll be joining the adult world in a few short years, and by the same people who are telling you that we should do anything so that you're not scared in school, will be telling you to SHUT UP if you feel endangered by the lack of safety you have from Islamic terror or criminal aliens.

Nobody thought to ask us I would have been more than happy to go on TV and bitch about curfews and stop judging my boyfriend because he has long hair like Jesus did and all sorts of other stupid shit. But adults weren't that interested in what I had to say.It's the media and the left, including their teachers and parents, who are manipulating these kids.
In a country where adults have been behaving like screaming toddlers since Trump got elected, we expect actual kids to be mature?

Also, don't forget, just last year, the Texas Church shooting was stopped by an NRA instructor who hit the shooter in the yard of the church with a shot and then followed the guy until he drove into a ditch and was finished off by deputies.

It is universally accepted that if the NRA instructor hadn't come out and fired at the guy, the rest of the members of the church would have been killed.

302 Flake & Feinstein are introducing a bill to require buyers of AR's to be at least 21 years old. My guess is that will pass.

Have they come up with a sufficiently non-vague definition of what an "AR-15" is? Recall that the '94 AWB tried to ban a list of guns by name and also included some verbiage about "substantiallly similar" models. Circumventing the former was simply a matter or renaming your products. The courts (don't think it went all the way to SCOTUS) ruled that "substantially similar" was unconstitutionally vague. So we got left with the "list of naughty bits" like pistol grips, flash hiders, and things that go up. So what exactly is this new billl going to regulate?
Posted by: Bob the Bilderberg at February 21, 2018 05:50 PM (7oUUT)

Exactly. The only definition they can possibly come up with would be to limit sales of guns capable of a certain capacity of ammo to those 21 and over. Which completely leaves out the 18 year olds in the military who are issued and use high capacity magazine weapons. We can give them to them in the military, but OMG, don't allow them to own one in Richville, USA.

He left the church because he had just been discovered by the neighbor and subsequently shot. He had initially shot into the church from outside and had been going outside and back in to continue shooting. FBI found several empty magazines on the ground outside, and the few people who survived said he kept coming back in.

Mr. Cooke>Sure, it's slightly odd that you think that we can't deport 11 million people but we can search 123 million homes. But that's just the price we have to pay. Times have changed. It has to be done: For the children; for America; for the future. Hey hey, ho ho, the Second Amendment has to go. Let's do this thing.

Read your state laws. And remember, you can be held liable for anything said buyer decides to do with your gun you sell him/her. Civilly, if not criminally.

I find it not worth it. Sell or consign to an FFL dealer.

before he could carry out his plan. A school safety officer overheard
him talking about it and took the appropriate steps.

Nobody died, so the Left doesn't care and the Constitutionalists understand someone did their job like most people do nearly all of the time.
The school shooting is the exception, not the rule. Doesn't make it less tragic.

I would agree based on States Rights. However, the libs are so far into the Incorporation Doctrine, that I think they should have a little of the 2nd amendment shoved in their face.

Of course, it doesn't matter, really, because they don't learn. They haven't become less centrist because they don't like the president, just more determined to take over the being king of the hill again.

Sure, California has adopted some outright insurrectionist stance, but it's not on a principal of realizing the value of federalism, it's just more they hate Trump.

They're probably right now champing at the bit to re-take the federal government and make changes in red states--whether they like the changes which would require something of blue states.

Anyhow, she's on her way to the class in her outfit, and wearing a raincoat over it. She mused later that it was going to be difficult to explain to the cop, if she got stopped, why she was wearing a belly dancing outfit, and wearing a raincoat with a .38 in the pocket.

Another test is to point your index fingers toward each other. Start rotating the index finger on your dominant hand in a clockwise direction. Now try to simultaneously rotate the index finger on the nondominant hand in a counterclockwise direction while keeping the other finger rotating in a clockwise direction. Some people can do this right away, some people require a little practice, and some people can't do it at all.

One of the radio pundits the other day was retelling a story of his
kid's school system requesting parents send cans of peas to school with
their kid for the kid to keep in their desk. The idea was if a shooter
came into the class room, the kids could all throw cans at them to do..
something. Knock them off balance or distract them or give them a
concussion.

In other words, the radio people suggested the adults in the school should eliminate any acts of responsibility and leave it up to teens with throwing canned vegetables at an armed shooter.

Obviously Democrats. No basis in reality whatsoever. Other than that, a fantastic idea!

I can tell you there are a lot of closet preppers in the military. I used to work for a colonel that was a few years from retiring and was going on leave to Montana. I asked if he was going hunting or fishing. He replied that he was going to go pick out which mountain to hide out on after retirement. He was always searching for the best deals on bulk ammo; we'd give each other a heads up when things went on sale.

How about just a simple statement of common sense. "Its zero either because they plugged the prick before it could become a mass shooting, or because the prick chose a target that was likely to gun free. Criminals don't go places they are likely to get shot."

Too bad TR's gone over to the political dark side. He's a rabid Prog, and I ain't talking about progressive rock. He warned his fans who voted for Trump to stay away from his tours because they wouldn't have a good time.

F him. He did the same thing when Ronaldus Magnus was elected back in the '80's. I've seen his sales numbers, he really can't afford to lose any fans. He's always been a niche artist with a small following despite his career and many famous songs. I was once a big fan, but no more.

Politico: Democrats Starting to Panic Over Congressional Polling

The Democrats thought they could avoid running on their agenda and just run against Trump. With Trump's numbers and the GOP's numbers improving -- and a majority now approving of the tax cut law -- the Democrats might have to run on their agenda after all.

And won't that be wonderful for them?

A big concern for them: Nancy Pelosi's crummy denigration of increases in citizens' take-home pay.


Now many Democrats say they're watching nervously as polls start to trend in Republicans' favor -- and worry theyíre witnessing the beginning of a slow-motion train wreck that they have no idea how to stop.

...

According to [a memo by the super PAC Priorities USA], Democrats have become too focused on reacting to Trump, while the president has continued to trumpet the GOP tax bill and its economic benefits, giving him a slow but increasing advantage in polls.

Other Democrats say the problem is not necessarily Pelosi herself but how she has chosen to combat the GOP tax law. The minority leader described benefits to the middle class -- such as pay bumps or bonuses handed out by businesses after its passage -- as "crumbs" compared with the tax breaks corporations received.

...


Combine that with recent polls showing the GOP tax bill, which Pelosi last year derided as "Armageddon," increasing in popularity, and Democrats are on edge.

...

"Language is important, and we have to be very careful that we donít insult people by saying that the amount of money they get is crumbs," Cleaver said. "We cannot be seen as patricians."

...

"Nancy Pelosi is calling your tax cuts 'crumbs' and 'pathetic,'" the narrator says in one recent ad from House Republicansí campaign arm. "Conor Lamb [a Democrat seeking a House seat] sounds just like her."

SO - the fact that Trump won the area by 1,234% is irrelevant. Dead guy apparently squeaked out his own victory in the same election.


Anyway, just because:

The Progressives will win in the places they normally win and lose in the places they normally lose.

If Republicans can a) effectively fight gun control (again) and b) not f*cking pass amnesty they'll do great in November. I'm only 40/60 on them doing both of these things, but I have hope. I really want the 'Blue Wave' to be a 'Blue Flush'.

Posted by: J.J. Sefton at February 21, 2018 04:09 PM (VM6ev)

49 The common wisdom is that mid-terms favor the out-of-power party. But the real factor is turnout, which matters more than in Presidential years: Whose base is more worked up to get off their asses to vote? And how much can one side demoralize the base of the other.

As expected, the trends are favoring Trump. The Rs have a structural advantage that will likely lead to a gain in the Senate of four or more seats. On current trajectory it'll be hard for the Ds to regain the House.

A strengthening economy is wind in Trump's sails.

The x factor I expect will happen is that by November, MSM will completely discredited with 70% or more of voters because of upcoming revelations. They were in a hole but kept digging. Trump will hit them with a flame thrower.

69 Still think the elements of a 2002 counter-historical party-in-power wave/victory are all there - courtesy of the Dems' insane radical response to 2016. Plus good economy. Plus Dem scandals almost certain to explode in the next 3 months.


Main advantage for Dems is the mediocrity of the congressional GOP, their refusal to set up a brutal, *political* environment where hard choices are made and incumbents/parties forced to take stands. Especially in the Senate, of course.


There is some time left for this. But if we don't see a much harsher differentiation campaign, with Trump as part of it, by early summer, they're deciding to take the extremely high-risk approach of banking on inertia and a good economy, hoping to "let the election come to them".


Oh - and the CONTINUED DOMINANT ROLE OF THE MSM IN SETTING THE POLITICAL FRAMEWORK is the only thing that makes the flaming clown car of the Dem Party any sort of contender in this context.

97 Last I checked, the Dems had managed to win-back roughy 35 state legislative seats since the 2016 election (most in VA, of course). Which is about 3% of the 1000+ they hemorrhaged during the reign of error, putting them on track to win-back, at most, about 25% of the seats they lost from 2009-2017.

That said, the losses in some districts Trump won by 10+ points a year ago tells me all I need to know about how much the local GOPe organizations have sucked, suck now, and will continue to suck. So yeah, I expect to see a bunch more of these "shocking" losses in the weeks to come.

My best guess is that the GOP will hold the HOR, losing another 6-10 seats, mostly RINOs we won't mind losing all that much. In spite of themselves, the GOPe will probably pick-up 4-7 in the Senate. If Trump starts to roll and the Dems continue to implode this is the floor for the GOPe, though.

Still, I definitely am not feeling cocky about 2018 in the House. Lots of retirements and history is on the party out of power. Also, I can't ignore there's a lot of special elections that seem to keep going Democrat's way for one reason or another.

131 Ignoramus, good summary, including stuff I forgot.


But we'll have to see about the mega-scandals 1) getting *through* the press firewall, and 2) having an impact. Actually such factors are usually very good at affecting outcomes in that they tend to suppress turn-out for the bad guys, more than they actually boost turn-out for the good guys.


If I were McConnell I'd be scheduling votes right now on gun bans. Hell some safe GOPer should introduce one as an amendment to next business on the floor (bypass the committee referral/delay).


THIS is what you want in a mid-term cycle where your opponents have many vulnerable incumbents whose political existence is an anomaly, and a fraud. You want the incumbents from MT, ND, WV, MO, OH etc. having to vote fer/agin a gun ban, when all media attention in focused on the topic. This is the way the Senate used to work. It's called competitive politics.

I'm the opposite in that I can see Republicans holding the Senate and likely adding there purely because there's a decent number of states that Trump won by a crazy margin yet has a Democrat Senator. Just a brutal calendar for Senate Dems. Think places like West Virginia and Missouri. Its full of Red States and incumbent Democrats. They'll have to run the board to take the Senate. If the election was like 2010 or 2014, we'd probably net like 5 or 6 additional seats.

The House though is much easier for me to see flipping since every seat is up for election. There's still a lot of gerrymandering, but there's also a lot of Republican Reps in blue states like New York, New Jersey, Illinois, etc.

265 I wish I could feel as upbeat as many of you about the polls. I'm looking at the results of the latest special elections however.

Yesterday, the conservative candidate for WI Supreme Court Judge won by sizable margins over the two leftists, who openly hate Trump and conservatives. (Fortunately the nuttier of the two, from Madison, was eliminated completely so today Dane County has a sad.)

However the general election will be in April. The totals for the 2 leftists combined beats the conservative total, so I'm hoping that more leftists stay at home in April and more conservatives - a lot more - turn out.

I don't mean to be a Debbie Downer, but the cardinal sin of conservatives is, I think, complacency. We can't get complacent because the Left never gives up.

278 Trump having a 'listening session' with High Schoolers about gun violence
....

I
think a lot these days about the American remnant that came home from
wars. The ones that were standing inches away from those that didn't.
Pretty much the same age as these squalling , puling brats.

And,
if you can imagine it, they had no access to 'grief counseling' or
'feelings expression enablers' or 'sympathy trophy dispersers'.

They went back to work in farm and field carried by the bond with their families, churches and friends.

I think a whole lot about this lately.

well, I was in hs during the Reagan years and I was the guy arguing for Reagan and America in my politics and economics classes.

You know what was funny, even though my teachers were openly opposed to Reagan, well some of them, they were all for the free exchange of ideas and open debate.

They were also principled in their positions, not simple sjws or America haters looking for revenge on the country, Whitey, or men.

275 You might think teachers unions would love a few armed guards on each school payroll, think of the dues they will have to pay.
--------------------
The way to do it is pay teachers and administrators a monthly bonus to qualify for CCW permit and demonstrate continued competence with the hand gun while you carry it in school. Armed guards a waste - while the number of armed adults in a school is an unknown and their identity is unknown to the shooter.

I would add, every school should have an evacuation plan for a live shooter that does not include using the hallways. Jeebus, how dumb is it move targets into an ambush?

308 No - by going along with the idiotic crap during the Hysteria Phase, you miss a perfect opportunity to debunk, refute, and educate. And given the Idiot Marinade in which nearly everyone (young and old) soaks 24/7 - whether in "education" or general society, from the press and pop culture - such opportunities cannot be squandered.


OK, I'll compromise.


Do these embarrassing, degrading, stupid listening-kabuki things, and next week have both House and Senate put up gun ban bills, pronto.


Lessee where the Dems from red states, or reddish districts, take their stand.


Look at the FL legislature. At the very center of the storm, at the maximum phase, they rejected some gun bans (I think). That's how you do it. But at the congressional level, what you're doing is handing the Dems a shovel, and asking them to dig. If they do, great. If they don't, it helps discredit this shameful hysteria even more quickly.

They gave us an IQ test and the counselor said, you are so smart, and I said, what's my IQ and the counselor wouldn't say.

I was never smart enough to get the girls.

I never thought I was smart working for minimum wage.

Not exactly the same. Unlike brats in a restaurant, these kids have been through something genuinely awful and traumatic. They've lost friends and teachers.

Think back to trying to comfort grieving relatives. When they were sobbing away and maybe irrationally blaming God or the doctor or whatever for the death, did you jump in and say, "No, no, that's not correct!" and start arguing with them or did you just let them blow off some steam?

Believe me, I agree with you - but scolding or belittling them or saying "who cares what you think?" would be the worst optics possible right now. Conservatives are prone to that sort of tonedeafness.

Let them rant and feel important for a bit but don't let them actually change policy.

And she keeps tabs. She learned that from her father.

The mind is a funny thing.

A few years ago, out of the blue, I met my old high school sweetheart.

I literally couldn't speak for a few moments becuz my brain couldn't quite square the memory of the cute, fresh, young girl I knew with this kind of haggard, worn out looking Mom in front of me.

I really did have something to do, so I spoke with her politely for a few minutes. Then was glad to leave.

Me golden idol had been tarnished.

I was glad things had worked out as they had cuz she wasn't my type at all anymore.

And since then have never wondered how things might have been had I taken a different path.

I highly recommend meeting your old sweetie for...um, general contentment with your life reasons.

I feel like Trump was almost a Ross Perot 2.0, but Trump wisely ran as a Republican.

Had Perot somehow been the Republican nominee, he would have won easily.

He was a little weird, but saw the globalist nonsense and called it out early. He should have made immigration a bigger issue in his platform.

I have a story about. A friend went to his 50th high school reunion and this woman came up to him and said "Hii, David" He didn't know who she was. She wasn't wearing a name tag at that point. He said she had been sick and had trouble walking and he couldn't believe this heavy woman was the same cute girl he knew in high school . Then he started talking to her and he realized it was the same kind, sweet person he knew in high school-just the outside had changed. And I imagine he looked a bit different too.

I give zero f**ks about someone's hysteria, or "loss", etc. apart from those things in themselves, where my sympathy is normal (not histrionic, normal).


They are fully accountable for what they say and do. If someone in those circumstances calls for evil, stupid, despicable things - they owe everyone an apology the nanosecond they return to normal. OR - that's "who they are".


I find it particularly offensively stupid when grieving people are given license to slander, promote evil and stupidity, and advocate disaster for others, based on their own temporary (or more likely, innate) lack of intelligence and understanding. F**k them in particular. Using their own loss as cover is as vile and indefensible a thing as I can imagine.

Posted by: Puddin Head at February 21, 2018 04:29 PM (2LelM)


Between a 6% raise and the new tax law, I'm seeing an 11% increase in my take-home pay. Mrs. Cop has also seen a nice bump in her pay check. We're seeing some serious moola flowing our way but that's all "crumbs" isn't Nancy? The GOPe can still fvkc this up (because they're mostly on team Uniparty) but Donny Two Scoops is getting that economic engine going again and people tend to give the President credit for a good economy, so Trump will probably pull these dis$h!ts across the finish line despite themselves.

Yeah, no woman seems to like that particular story.

But, for me, it was kind of a profound moment, maybe cuz life was kicking me in the nuts quite a bit at that time.

It was a real attitude realignment for me.

Everything that happened good, bad, indifferent, had led to a life that was actually pretty good-

despite Life's foot to testicle action of the moment.

That may make me Goofus. But, I've never looked back with deep regret since then.

523 It's an act. Think Trojan Horse. Pennsylvania is a good example. Lots of Congressional seats up for grabs...and a little while back, the Democrats filed a lawsuit to change the "gerrymandering." The Supreme Court of PA (which now has a majority of Liberal hacks)...agreed and issued an order requiring the Republicans to submit a new congressional map of districts. They gave the Governor (another liberal hack) authority to accept or deny whatever the Republicans submitted. Of course he shot it down...and then the Supreme Court of PA ordered (that's right....ordered) that they would submit a new district mapping using a very very very Liberal hack and self-proclaimed "fairness" jockey from Stanford University.

Following me so far? The Supreme Court of PA ignored the State Constitution stating that districts can only be changed through legislation and mandated that a new map be applied created by a liberal jackass (who, by the way did the same thing in North Carolina and a host of other red leaning states).

Well, the map now in application (to quote the leader of the local Republican party) is a democrat wet dream. They took republican leaning districts and added very very blue areas to them such that most now lean blue. It's unbelievable how blatant this is. But, there you have it. PA is going to lose a lot of seats in the midterms. ALOT!

They will scrounge up three or four ugly women in one or two close races and accuse the Repub. of sexual harassment 30 years ago. As we saw in Alabama, it will work like a charm with the Repubs telling the world they will vote for the Dem. The old Divide and Conquer rule with collusion of the Repub. Elites.

Ratings for NBC's Olympics Continue to Stink on Ice

#GetWokeGoBroke.

Actually it's a combination of things, though I'm sure the little political statements from Olympians who don't even get a medal aren't helping.

As Donny Two Scoops might say, "Me? I like Olympic heroes who crack the single-digits in rankings, not the ones who take tenth place."



Downhill dive: NBC's terrible Olympics get worse in week two as marquee
names flee, ratings sink and anchors struggle to find anything good to cover in the wake of school massacre

The 2018 Winter Olympics have produced few medal winners from Team USA and provided little must-see TV for broadcaster NBC

On Monday, NBC learned that Mikaela Shiffrin was withdrawing from downhill and figure skater Adam Rippon turned down a correspondent offer

This comes after Shiffrin placed fourth in the slalom last week just minutes before figure skater Nathan Chen fell during his disastrous short program

A weather delay meant her lone gold happened outside of prime time

NBC is also without its two veteran anchors this year, Matt Lauer on Today and Bob Costas of NBC Sports

This means Al Roker has been paired with Craig Melvin for awkward buddy segments in South Korea while Mike Tirico is in for Costas at NBC Sports

Television ratings have been down double digits from the Sochi Games and on Saturday hit a low of 13.62 million viewers

I can't believe the article cited the absence of Matt Lauer and Bob Costas as drawbacks.

The article notes that the showdown between Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding -- admittedly, an event that had more than just sport going for it-- drew nearly ten times as much as NBC's Saturday rating -- the Kerrigan/Harding face-off drew more than 125 million.


By the way, NBC did not hesitate to offer a job to Adam Rippon as an analyst or whatever. I mean, he came in tenth place and all -- so scoop this talent up while he's hot barely lukewarm, just slightly warmer than a chair a fat man sat in an hour ago.

He turned NBC down, saying he wanted to stay with his fellow Olympians to teach them the Courage to Lose.

Below, an exciting moment from this competition.

(Not real -- a guy named Bob Menery does his Fake Sportscaster Voice over actual clips.)

14 Reports have it that Adam Rippon turned down the job over a job title. He wanted to be designated Sports Anal-ist. Additionally, NBC had a clause in the contract stating how far the microphone had to be away from his mouth. They didn't want to televise any unfortunate equipment failures should Rippon decide to practice his ORALtor skills on the mic.

BUT we have gotten to a point where we mind very much NBC using the games as just another platform to push their politics and deviant culture, plus showing such a pitiful amount of the actual events, and doing so many 'back story of this athlete' segments so we are passing on watching the games at all.

The only good thing about the coverage this year is the VAST superiority of Tirico over Costas. His demeanor is pleasant and professional and I have not witnessed any of the Costas-style drama and condescension. He makes a good MC.

68 "The article notes that the showdown between Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding -- admittedly, an event that had more than just sport going for it-- drew nearly ten times as much as NBC's Saturday rating -- the Kerrigan/Harding face-off drew more than 125 million."


In fairness to NBC, Internet/technology has made it virtually impossible for NBC to hold events for showing on tape in prime time with any sense of surprise. This was not the case in 1994. The best we got of the Harding/Kerrigan evenst as it was unfolding live were stills like in the fights. That has contributed when the events are occurring in Asia.

84 Laughing in Texas has a stunningly good common sense idea about Olympic coverage.


I actually really have an interest in a few America-obscure sports (nordic skiing), and have always enjoyed a few of the older winter events (ski jumping, bobsled, speed skating).


As I've noted here for the past 2 weeks, the live feeds on the NBC website have been great. Maybe because of the events I watch, no stupid American commentators, no focus on the American participants. And some dramatic action.


In recent days the live feeds have been a wasteland - curling, figure skating, boring teenagers-making-up-something-new-to-do-after-skiing events (most snowboard stuff, some of the new group ski stuff).


There is a master calendar that shows the days all the events are happening - have not compared that to the live feed menu to see if NBC has switched its offerings. Confess I have been lazy, have not sought out any foreign broadcaster website live feeds - which should be rewarding, esp. for my interests. Maybe I'll do so today.

1. The whole wokeness thing is difficult to stomach. Both during the broadcast and in the commercials. If I don't immediately switch to mute at a commercial, I'm will hear something that irks the crap out of me. I don't watch much TV and to listen to all the shows that are marketed makes me want to vomit.

2. Speaking of not watching much TV, I only have the standard cable subscription. Which means that I only get to watch what's shown on the network channel. And I can't go online and watch anything, because NBC requires a more-than-standard cable subscription to watch online.

3. The outspoken athletes and the outspoken announcers immediately make me wish that they would just form their own country already.

I miss my youth and watching Jim McKay on ABC. Or maybe that's just the romantic in me.

101 The women's figure skating on NBCSN last night was okay.

I mean if you managed to miss the hour of 'olympic ice' that preceded it that for some reason had the gay skater on the black chick ghostbuster doing skits for some reason while the professionals had to awkwardly pretend to be impressed.

Anna Puma failed to mention when she posted that Sailor Moon routine a few months back that the gal performing it is actually the best in the world at the moment. Well, aside from an injury and her teammate scoring a half point higher. According to the coverage, the two of them had the highest scores ever recorded in competition, so it won't be like last time where the gold medalist was the least bad of gals who fell.

Then another 10 minutes (commercials made it 15) of interviews and backstory on athletes

10 minutes of actual sporting events (commercial cuts at odd times, breaking the flow of the event, plus tacked on another 5 minutes for them)

That shows the stupidity of offering a job to Rippon. Most people are turned off by bitter, angry gay dudes ala Dan Savage. Weir, on the other hand, comes off as a friendly, likeable guy so he is good at it.

This right here. I think he's doing a fantastic job, and is the solo highlight of the entire fiasco. Johnny Weir also does a great job and I don't care what he wears. I think it's funny he's going full-on Hunger Games.

The games feel flat regardless of Team USA winning or losing. I think the atmosphere of the Olympics has been lost; 24 hour sports channels have spoiled the specialness of it, and there's just too much hype.

And like Donna said, starting it off with some asshat who makes a cointoss a racial issue, and a second-tier skater inserting his politics in to it does not help my enthusiasm one iota.

180 Actually it's a combination of things, though I'm sure the little political statements from Olympians who don't even get a medal aren't helping.

The biggest problem is that most of the winter Olympic sports seem to suck. The addition of all those asinine winter skateboard "style" events is annoying as all hell.

Further, the coverage is awful. They don't bother to actually cover any of the events - like ... all the heats, from beginning to end without personal sob story bullshit thrown in. ANd NBC has a ton of extra channels to show this stuff on. But all they really cover on TV is the prime time crap - and prime time here certainly isn't prime time in South Korea.

Lastly, NBC has taken up with the Eurotrash method of concentrating on the "national" competitors, as if anyone really gives a shit. The point of the Olympics - or any world championship, is to see the best competing and to see the best win. Who cares if the best is from America or somewhere else? Americans have never been into this asinine sort of faux-nationality. I mean, there are areas where nationality is very, very important, such as in sovereignty issues, war, political organization, commerce, ... but not sports. No nation is defined by how many friggin world championships it picks up. For sports, we have always had professional leagues - and the best professional leagues in the world ... because doing business is the business of America.

AMEN. As a gun guy, I'm biased and was willing to overlook what had appeared to me in the past to be possibly a dull sport to watch. But the events as a whole this year were legitimately exciting. The racing was tight and the shooting was, to use a hugely-overused network TV word) dramatic. The sport deserves a hell of a lot more attention than it gets here.

Unfortunately, the types of things that get attention are the hours-long Lindsey Vonn-centric womens downhill coverage. Embarassing and enormously unfair to Goggia and Wowinckel.

221 The US men's curling team managed to claw their way into the medal round which is quite something since they were at 2-4 in round robin at one point.

Of course now they have to beat Canada again to get into the gold medal match.

I think it's right to keep the professionals out.

Probably either NBCSN (which shows curling routinely by the by) or CNBC.

260 Live feeds via NBC website have had a fair amount of biathlon and other nordic events. And with the number of cameras, and production quality (sled cams, wire cams, drone cams) now brought to the table, they can be very fun to watch.


I love x-c skiing, have done it for decades (though not enough, and am geographically challenged for snow so don't get to do much), and have long wished I could have done biathlon. So watching these races is interesting (and torturous) for me.


And while I simply have no interest in watching, never have, and the atmospherics have long been dominated by gay/theater vibes, figure skating is unbelievably athletic and difficult. Have played hockey most of my life, and trust me even the "easiest" moves done by figure skaters are incredibly difficult.

289 What others said just above.


Biathlon in particular is a very dramatic, watchable event. A unique combo of sprint, or medium-distance, racing - with precision shooting. The most aerobic exercise there is (more than swimming), combined with a discipline where breath control and calm are the keys. A fantastic athletic challenge.


And the mechanics are key to the drama. One or two missed targets out of 20 can take the fastest skier to 10th place. In the best races, everything comes down to the 4th (last) shooting session. It's fantastic.

Now its just Mountain Dew, environment, screw Trump, etc.

305 What NBC should be doing is covering almost all of the sports in their entirety online without virtually all of the "human interest" portions. Then in the evening cover the figure skating (which women seem to love) and cover the big highlights of the other events.

306 The part of homosexuality I don't get is the need to display and live a certain "lifestyle." I mean why this need to go full Liberace? OK Weir, we get it. You're a pouf. You are all but wearing a neon sign of two guys humping around your neck like Flava Flav. Why?

It's the narcissism component.

307 >>> In fairness to Rippon...shut up...he did skate beautiful programs with no falls or mistakes...and helped win the team the bronze medal. No fan, but giving some extra detail.

The problem is that he was never in medal contention for a men's medal, despite NBC pumping him up as this skating wunderkind. Only triples, no quads? He skates pretty programs but IMO needs the athleticism to land a quad if he's going to spout off like he does.

308 Winter Olympics going on now.
Spring Training in MLB going on now.

Is it winter or spring? I'm so confused. Must be because Trump pulled us out of the Paris Climate Accord!!! *hair on fire*

310 I do enjoy the figure-skating events.
I don't worry too much about who wins or loses because judges are.....subjective. (Yeah, the French should have won the ice-dancing gold over the Canadians, but..... that's the way it goes.)

But I can remember when the coverage was much better. They would at least tell you what music the performers were using. Now they blather on about the skaters "interpreting the story" when I don't even know what the "story" it i
