Attachment-1(1).jpg

Tonka is a 4 year-old Corgi mix with the best ears. A rescue that warms my heart. She swears that I keep hiding Daddy from her. It's pure happiness every time she sees him.
Zeke is a formerly of our backyard feral colony who adopted us as a baby. A Maine Coon who got stuck in the tree, and I rescued from said tree. Hubby says that you never see cat skeletons in trees. The rest of the argument gets sillier whenever MY son misbehaves. He is harness-trained for walkies in the yard where he still visits his momma cat and niece. He will also walk into the vet on lead, but he much prefers walking out.

Avi is our newest addition and another rescue. A champion cuddler who will nip a chin or cheek without warning. He practices Kung Fu with sister dog but big brother really isn't that into him.

Nope. Never seen a kitteh skelton in a tree. They look like charming pets! Thanks for sharing Jillybeans.

Hello Fellow PetMoron

I've been faithfully following your pet thread the past few years; lurking, viewing and otherwise enjoying the many posts and the stories behind the pics. I love it!

I would like to make a submission, though it's not of my pets and I do hope you would consider this a worthy posting when the time comes. I'm hoping it meets the criteria and if not, I ask for your kind consideration to make an exception as it's a very heartwarming request.

The following pic is of three kitties, Birchie, Pele and Elliot. They are three remaining kitties up for adoption at TinyKittens.com located in Langley BC, Canada. They were rescued from the BC Wildfires that ravaged western Canada last year during the early summer months.

These three kitties are from separate feral colonies so they are not siblings or litter mates. But, if you were to watch their livestream and/or Facebook and Youtube videos of them, you would think they true soulmates.

They have been wonderfully socialized and would easily accept a human companion. They are bonded so tightly that Tinkykittens is adopting these three as a trio. A mighty big undertaking for anyone interested, but they would be a truly rewarding addition to anyone looking for feline companionship.

You can view their livestream here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLAlml6CUFY

If the link doesn't work, just type in BC Wildfire Kittens and they should show up.

Here is a video link to a facebook video that showcases them and their adoption profile:
https://www.facebook.com/tinykittens/videos/1784859658255557/

Maybe there is a Moron or Moronette or family in the Pacific NW nearby that may be interested? I hope so Thank you for considering this, they would love to go to a home

Thank you very much

Cheers from Decrepit Maryland

Frank T.


You are a fine Moron Frank T.

Hi,

Longtime lurker here. Attached is a picture of our Sidney. She’s half Llasa and half Schnauzer and the smartest dog I’ve ever met. Fifteen pounds, 14 years old. Never behaves badly or runs from me. December 23rd 2017, she escaped the fence at a relative’s house in NC(we live in Summerville SC). Long story short she was missing for 5 days in temps that went as low as 14 at night. We searched and searched! The FB(spit!) post/ad about her being missing was viewed 16k which was huge considering the tiny town. People we didn’t even know helped us search. Finally had to give up and head back home. 5 hours after getting home the phone rings and a man says he has my dog. He is an MP in the Army based in another state and was coming home for a visit during the holidays. He had caught her and wrapped her in his dress uniform jacket. He had no clue about the FB or her being missing. He just stopped and picked her up about 11pm when he saw her standing in the middle of the road. Thanks to the ID tag on her collar (still on luckily), he could contact us. It was truly a Christmas miracle for us! He refused a reward. I AM making sure his CO is informed of his kindness! ‘God bless our military’ has even more meaning for me now!

G.S.

PS. Other than a pretty good bruise and some weight loss, she was unscathed by her adventure!

Talk about miracles. What a great story. I think I can say we are all glad for this happy ending.

Longtime lurker and never commenter. This is Cricket, my second Airedale. He is one of a kind, the ultimate party dog. When we go to the dog park, he is never aggressive and has only raised the ire of one grumpy dog. All in all, Cricket is a fantastic pet!-Amy

Well Amy, it's about time you started commenting. And by the way, Cricket appears to be an awesome doggeh. We appreciate the submission.

11 Last night I watched some videos on Youtube. Apparently one of the favorite outdoor pastimes in rural Britain is rounding up friends and their dogs and then go rat hunting. Sometimes the people dig up nests with pitchforks, sometimes they hire a guy with a backhoe to dig out a colony. The dogs seem to have a good time and, boy howdy, England must have the biggest, fattest rattus ratti in the world.

13 Okay, I stayed awake for Pet Thread (do I win something for no sleep?) and just ordered granddog to time out. Bless her heart, she just quietly goes into the crate when I say 'time out'. Resident Dog and Cat are not too pleased with her right now, but she is always willing and cooperative.

16 Grandson (10 mo) is a charming and happy kid who looks just like Charlie Brown. He was fascinated by resident Dog and ignored his own dog. Maybe babies just think their own animals are extensions of themselves? It was nice to see the kid, and I'm so glad he is such a charmer. Since I see the other three every day, I am just so happy to see the other one. Grandpuppy, on the other hand . . . is on my naughty list.

What does this mean?

Did you see the brand involved and the list of brands the company makes? Not generic. Not generic at all.

What is missing from this panic-instilling article and investigation is exactly what level (in parts per million or parts per billion) of contamination there is.

In other words: "You have pets? Here's your match. Strike it and apply to you hair."

29 A rant about my local dog pound. They have made the hours nearly impossible for a working person to stop by and when you do they act insulted about having to show you the animals.

A good friend stopped by to volunteer to clean cages and wash water bowls. No they replied but you could walk a dog if you wanted.

What they didn't realize is that she ran that shelter for 14 years.

30 13 ... Love the "time out" image. Our last 3 toy poodles were litter mates, never apart from birth. When I said 'bed' they trained themselves to walk into their pen, nose to tail, biggest first. They would each curl up in 'their' spot and fall asleep. We really miss them. Oddly, Prince the Poodle, our 12 year old rescue, is just as cooperative when we hold the pen door open for him.

Yeah, I have that rule, too. They're really good about a finger snap and a "get down right now," but I'm fully aware that they do whatever-the-fuck they want when I'm either asleep or out. My desktop was all awry this morning, which is weird. Then I saw Zoey, who is far more active and playful since our cross-country trip when she lost about 4 pounds (and I'm keeping her there), brazenly get up on my desk/farm table this morning. Unlike her brother Cecil, she does not respond to the "get down right now." I was forced to pick her large ass up and snuggle her out of it.

I was in a similar situation when I married my husband (though my shoes were mercifully left alone). He kept telling me the cat was pretty old & probably wouldn't be around much longer. The thing lived to be 21 - no doubt just to spite me. And, boy, was it thrilled when the kids started coming along.

59 Lab rats make very good pets. Easily trainable for simple commands and ridiculously affectionate. Stupid softie me had one living in my dorm room in a bird cage and then had to scramble to find a family who would take him (mom darned near stroked out). Anyway, he liked people and kids and was always a hit at elementary schools and never bit anyone. Lived 6 years after me, which is a very very long time for a lab rat.

Psychology was supposed to be 'science' and so we had Skinner boxes. Rat would press the food bar for petting rather than just food. Almost failed the darned class because he was faster through the maze, but wanted the pets more than the food. He was a good animal.

Saturday Gardening Thread: Graft [KT]

Tree of 40 fruit

Hello, gardeners and friends of gardeners. The tree above is one of a series of art pieces created by grafting several varieties of stone fruits onto one tree. We have some grafters among us. Any reports?

Meanwhile, Sherpa_K2 sends in the following:

Just thought I would drop by an say hello and tell you how much in these troubled times your gardening thread is appreciated. A little Zen in morning thankx to KT. Pictures yesterday while I was eagle hunting for photos on a Nature Conservancy in Sequim Wa..

More eagle and habitat photos below, plus garden notes:

Composting has gone well here this winter, horse and cow manure. Center core has been a constant 140 degrees and I've been turning it every two weeks. I will dazzle you this spring and summer with photos from Port Townsend Wa..

For Sherpa_K2 and our other enthusiastic composters, some inspiration from the Telegraph: a piece on the Joys of the Winter Compost Heap.

Gardens of The Horde

Naughty Pine sent in a winter garden photo with snow and everything!

Good afternoon, KT. I'm enjoying the pretty photos on the Gardening Thread and dreaming of crocuses and daffodils. In the meantime, I was wondering if you knew anything about Winter Gardens. I have been told that they were designed to look good even in the bleak winter.

My version is to leave standing Autumn Joy sedum that looks interesting when topped with a "blossom" of snowfall. But as you see, the snow is overdone at the moment.

sedumaj.jpg

Autumn Joy is such a useful plant, changing appearance through the seasons. Anybody have other tips on "winter interest" in the garden today? For Naughty Pine and others pining for spring, we received a First Crocus photo:

From the garden of Diogenes.
Well. It's more like a flowerbed.
Just south of Seattle.

And a cactus from Bonecrusher:

There are all kinds of captions for this one. How about "good morning ladies" for openers.

12 I've seen eagles roosting in trees lining West Chester Pike (rt. 3) in Newtown Square, PA. I was kind of stunned to see them there.

My brother put a suet cake out for the winter birds, but all it attracted was grackles. Grackles are like the hoodrats of the avian kingdom. I guess they have to eat too, but boy are they ugly and ill mannered.

16 I see bald eagles often in my area, riding thermals following stream beds that flow through town.

Far more rare is to see a golden eagle, which are well named, because their dark brown feathers glow when they catch sunlight. Very beautiful, and enormous.

19 In east texas, occasionally you can spot a Bald Eagle near one of the many lakes - for a while there was a nesting pair on Lake Palestine that could be seen by boat. don't know if they're still they're. I've also spotted Osprey's in the winter down here, they sometimes fool you into thinking they're Bald Eagles because they've got some of the same black/white configuration. Those are fun to watch, I've seen one dive full speed into the lake and take back off with a big fish in its talons.

The only time I've even seen a Golden Eagle in the area was near a pig farm up near the Oklahoma border. Came around the bend and there was this HUGE brown bird standing in the road, picking at something. So I disturbed him and he took off, and then I could see he was carrying a decent sized little pig under him.

Impressive bird.

22 I'm no gardener but it looks like I will have to replace a lot of plants that were killed in our extended hard freeze we had in Houston. Hopefully it did not kill my huge fig tree but it's not looking good.

At my tennis club, the owner recently put in about 30 large palm trees around the complex. I think she may have to replace them all. That's going to be a >100k job.

23 The only gardening I can do is trees. I have photos of tiny little 6 inch seedlings, that have grown up to six feet little trees that have grown up to twenty foot tall young trees.

I sprinkle a little fertilizer around them once a season and when we get a lot of rain, the trees grown another foot and a half..

When I first moved in here, the forest grew right up to the house, and on Google Earth, my home was a tiny little dot in the forest. I cleared out space just to the north, and on Google Earth, you could see the space I had cleared out.

I sorta wanna clear out the space to the south and put in sugar maples so the people who come to live here next will have a sugar bush in their side yard even if it is very expensive to boil the sap from a Sugar Maple down to make Maple Syrup.

I would like to put in Oak Trees in the back of the place, but deer and rabbits eat the seedlings which would have to be protected until they are larger.

It would be fun to have Oak in the back, with deer and squirrels feeding on the Acorns. I'll never see it, but I can imagine it.

If the White Pine grow tall enough, I might have a migrating eagle in the branches for a few weeks. At least I can imagine it.

Snow is forecast for the next couple of days.

Posted by: Skandia Recluse at February 17, 2018 01:13 PM (roQNm)

24 Good afternoon everyone. It is clouding up and looking wintery right now. We might get a frozen mix tonight if the temps drop fast enough. But the forecast is for mid-70s by Tuesday. This has been a strange winter so far: plenty of cold, mostly dry, and very little snow (so far). But the days are getting longer, the ground is not as hard frozen, and the nights are not quite as freezing on a regular basis. It's not spring but you can tell it is on its way.

26 Love my crocus!!!

Anyway, not far from here is a great golf course where just over the 13th green is an old snag and two eagles have been nesting there for years. The course owner uses a space right next to the green for outdoor weddings. A clever idea but you do have to wait to play thru.

27 I see bald eagles around Salem, Oregon, and out by Basket Slough National Wildlife Refuge near Dallas (Oregon). The eagles hunt Canadian geese over the winter.

I have tried grafting gravenstein apple onto some rootstock that was a tree that was cut down before I moved into the house, and I have tried to graft some yellow plum onto a random plum that is either a rootstock for a brooks plum or a volunteer.

It has been two weeks, and though I hurried up and grafted when the weather turned really nice and I thought Spring had come, it has gone back to being cold and rainy.

The witch hazel is blooming, and some crocuses.

There is a house south of here where the owner planted crocuses in her laws, and they pop up very early. No idea what she does about mowing, and if that affects the crocuses at the rest of the year.

Posted by: Kindltot at February 17, 2018 01:14 PM (2K6fY)

28 That last plant is a fruit tree called guyabano or sour sop. I don't know the scientific name. It's a gnarly fruit with very white flesh and black seeds in the center. It's tart and sweet and relatively easy to grow. It can get pretty big, 30 ft or better and seems resistant to many pests, but not all. The leaves can be used to make a tea that local healers often claim to be a semi-cure for cancer. It's a nice tree - anyone in the tropics should have a couple, not planted within falling distance of the house, which is good advice for all trees everywhere.

46 Kittitas Valley, where I live, is home to a huge number of raptors. Golden and bald eagles, red tail hawks. prairie falcons, great blue herons and great horned owls. Osprey and merlins are summer birds so a very nice variety. As for wild turkeys a friend nearby has them infesting his yard. Forget shooting them, he could use a slingshot. Their puppeh loves to chase them. The quail discovered that I put seed out so come by every day to check. They've been displacing the doves to some extent. Sparrows and chickadees come through often. Blue Jays and magpies are all over the suet hanger. The magpies have figured out how to open the cage so they can eat it on the ground.

47 The photos on the gardening thtread are always great but this week's are exceptionally good. That top tree is fantastic, as in fantasy. I'm sure most people would assume Photoshop was involved. The first crocus I see each year always a sign of hope and renewal and is always special. Love the bird photos. It is tough to get that level of detail unless the light is just right. That last photo looks like a strawberry crossed with one of Bonecrusher's cactus. No idea what it really is.

Yes, we're still laughing at Bonecrusher's photo and caption. Of course, this being the Horde, the caption would have occured to someone.

I love black and white photography and those 'snaggly' shots are wonderful. I've saved both to enlarge and print out. They would make great models to try some pencil or pen and ink sketches. Even just a detail of one of the trees would be fun. Thanks for submitting them. (Fortunately, no one needs to see my efforts. I have little talent for drawing but have lots of fun trying. One of the advantages of paper is that it burns easily.) :-)

50 I did some avid gardening way back when we lived in western PA. We had a house with a brick wall facing south.

As the along-the-house feature, I built a sturdy post and wire arrangement for espaliered fruit trees. Ordered bare root pear tree whips, planted them well,
and pruned to one main shoot to begin.

It took three growing seasons for the trees to mature enough to fruit, and by they they were trained out with arms on the lower two wires.

I got plums! Not the pears I had wanted and ordered. But they were delicious.

My problem is overhead power lines. The white pine in the front tend to lean toward the southern sunshine which is away from the power line. The original owners planted a white cedar almost directly beneath the power line, and I will have to cut it down soon because it has nearly reached the wire.

I cleared out the north side of the house because there were four large trees looming over the house, and the underbrush was a fire hazard.

I read about California wild fires and look out my windows and imagine a wildfire burning through here.

And I've learned a bit about the numerous diseases that affect woodlots that are left to grow wild. I'm certain that all of those diseases have infected the trees on my tiny three acres. Numerous dead trees are a delight for woodpeckers around here. Darwin's nature of tooth and claw everywhere you look.

53 "I would like to put in Oak Trees in the back of the place, but deer and rabbits eat the seedlings which would have to be protected until they are larger. "

yeah. I have hard maples in the yard that give nice fall colors (and syrup). They produce 100s of seedlings, which I plan to at some point collect in rows and grow big enough to move to the woods for fall color. But deer indeed are an issue so I'd still have to protect them for several years I guess.

60 For anyone with woodlots, look into the Firewise program.
Lots of good advice on protecting your property and homes from wildfires.
It's close to a religion out here because of the forests and dry scrub we have. The program is on line and each state has their own program with local advice. Most counties, at least in WA state have local programs as well and will be happy to help you get started.

I have a great horned owl nest that my guys built last year. I have two cameras on the nest this year.
There are two eggs. I can't share the link because the cameras have sound and you can hear me in the backyard.

I cannot wait to watch the owlets.

64 Two days ago, our dogs were laying in the grass, taking a break from chasing balls. It was a beautiful warm and quiet day. We watched a hawk glide over our heads and could even hear the powerful wooshes when he used his wings to get up over the trees.

They are white with dark circles around their eyes. Oversized beaks too that make them look kind of buzzardy. Not cutesy at all but we so wished there was an owl cam.

72 My compost heap is made from a 10' stretch of woven fencing, what we called 'sheep wire' when I was a kid. It loops into a 3' tall circle about 3' in diameter. All my sources claim this is the smallest you want to make your compost heap, any smaller and it won't retain heat to work right.

In January or February when we get a stretch of nice weather I dig over the overwintering compost heap, trying to get the large chunks like the corn stalks that didn't rot down into the middle of the pile, and layer in leaves from the maple that I piled up in the Autumn with shovel fulls of the old compost pile, all the way to the top of the wire enclosure.
Once I get the enclosure full, I let it sit about a week to settle right and then peel off the wire and put it aside. This year I am using it for a second pile, but in the past I have used it for training snow peas.

Then I let the pile sit, settle and work. The worms work it over, and so do the black soldier fly maggots.
If I have the pile out so there is no trees above it, I seem to get mostly worms. If it is under overhanging branches I get a lot of the black soldier fly maggots. The maggots are faster and are more efficient so the compost pile is a lot less, but the worms are better at breaking down leaves.
I stopped worrying about which is better for me they both work.
The adults look like black wasps and drone around sounding like tiny little B-17s and act all aggressive.

I throw my dish water on it in the summer, and water it if it seems to get really dry. Usually I get a volunteer squash growing out of it so I have an excuse to water it from time to time.

Generally I start a second pile in the Spring when I am doing a lot of cutting and trimming and weeding. I am supposed to rake old leaves out of the iris beds too, but there are years where I ignore that.
I use the second heap for weeds and to dig in my kitchen scraps into instead of disturbing the volunteer squash. I try to pull up a lot of dirt with the weeds since that seems to hurry things along.
In the Fall when it is dry, I screen out the old pile and put the compost on the garden for the winter, and I combine the big lumps and uncomposted stuff left with the new pile, and put leaves on top of it.

I have 4 big leaf maples so I get a lot of leaves. I keep a corral of sorts just for the leaves and compost heaps, so I pile the unused leaves there.

In the following January or February I start again.

77 Last weekend was sooo nice out, got me all worked up to plan a (limited) garden and some container stuff..

I just HAD to have some greenery growing, so put a few old garlic cloves in saucer of water... they're growing! Can snip the greens for salad I guess, lol.

NOW forecast is for subfreezing temps, even colder than it's been yet this winter.

----

I want to try potatoes in bags this year. Been saving the (36 and 50 pound) dogfood sacks for this. They're made with a tarp-like material.
Planning to punch drainage holes in bottom and up the sides an inch or two, then roll the sides down for about a foot-tall start. Will put in a thin layer of mulch for drainage, then thick layer of soil /compost /manure mix, then spuds, and cover with a couple more inches of soilmix.


Guess I won't be doing it *this* weekend anyway, too cold out!

Also planning to grow some ginger in pots. I bought a nice big root last weekend and snapped it into pieces with 3 or 4 buds apiece. Guess I can pot those now-- the ends are dry and there's just enough room at the window.

82 I don't put meat in the compost heaps. Worms don't eat it, but the soldier fly maggots supposedly will.
However the possums will go for it if they figure it is there.

I have put in chicken bones, but they don't break down very fast and they always look so pathetic.
I do put eggshells in, but I crush them because it helps them break down faster. The previous owner had dug ham bones into the garden, and I wound up beating them with a shovel to splinter them so I would stop digging them up.

88 KT. Papaya. Had never had it before. The mango was great as well since you get crap at the local grocery store. They're never ripe. Never in my life have I had such good pineapple. You could eat the core.

Another interesting item we learned. There has been a blight going through the coconut trees. The French government and the local government has been working on a hybridized tree that can withstand it. The one that is working out best is also shorter so the fruit is much easier to pick. Coca is a big, big crop in the islands of the South Pacific.

Posted by: Skip at February 17, 2018 03:09 PM (aC6Sd)

91 I think it was just a way to get rid of the bones.

I've done different things in the past. I dug a lot of woody trimmings into an area I wanted to turn into a garden. The idea was to break up the heavy clay and keep it from packing down again over the winter. I guess it worked.

When I was a kid we had a compost heap that was the back corner of the property that we just dumped leaves and weeds into and I got to dig up every couple of years and spread on the garden.

Mom used to dig the kitchen scraps into a trench in her garden to cut out having to dig the whole thing over a second time.

All of these work, and it is just what you want to do and have time to do.

Posted by: Art Rondolet of Malmsey at February 17, 2018 02:53 PM (S+f+m)

It was a pain. I just had automatic entry gates installed at my ranch. I had to have my guys trench for about 150 yards at each entrance and the electrician run the power in conduit to the gates. The security company guy put the owl cams up before nesting season and its hooked up to a dvr and WiFi. There is a cable running down the tree to the entry gate power source.
Then my guys used the trencher and put the power cable in conduit and buried it.

There are also battery sources that you can use, solar batteries may work depending on your location.

It's not cheap.

94 Thanks for the valuable details, CaliGirl! That's what I was afraid of. I think we are going to get the boxes established and then see if we want to go to the trouble and expense of cams the second season.

Interesting. Yes, the stuff that gets exported does not compare. I hear they grow some pretty good mangoes in Mesa if you are local.

Posted by: KT at February 17, 2018 03:55 PM (BVQ+1)

99 Ah, well, it would be too much of a miracle if I was First. Second is pretty close, though, so I'm pleasantly surprised that I caught the Garden Thread that early.

Mother Nature still has some winter in mind for Idaho's Treasure Valley... we had a heavy snow flurry midday on Valentines Day. It didn't stick - just turned to drizzle for the rest of the day. Some rain predicted for later today and this week, but every time they've predicted it, we get less than we were hoping for - I'm still worrying about a dry year. This coming week, some days with highs remaining below freezing are predicted - I'm hoping that after that, we start heading for Spring for good!

I did finally finish cutting down the last leaves of Siberian Iris, and that was my last cleanup task. Now we're doing what we can to get a head start on planting. Husband is still digging corn rows, part of a row at a time (to spare his back), breaking up the clay and sand layers of the paddock, adding compost as he goes. (I don't put meat, or eggshells, in my compost, because I don't want critters digging in the compost cages. Your compost, your choice. - We have small sprayers on the compost, off the drip irrigation lines, to keep it moist.) He'll rent a tiller to run through the entire corn area, too, but that comes much later.

I still have bulb sprouts, but they're moving slowly because of the renewed cold. The rear hyacinths are furthest along, at several inches high, and half-ready to bloom. The daffodils and tulips are just poking out. The front tulips are just an inch high at most, and the front hyacinths have only a few bits poking up. (When they're done for the year, I plan to remove the clay soil on top of them and put in something decent so it's easier for them to sprout.) Our daylilies, 2 mini's and one regular size, have small sprouts as well.

The Red-Shafted Northern Flicker has shown up again this week. He really does look enormous, compared to the seed feeder, and to all the sparrows and finches that normally feed there. We haven't heard or seen our Great Horned Owl or our (?Sharp-Shinned) hawk this week. (The other bird of prey that's common around here is the osprey, but we don't see them here at our house.) I wish I knew where the hawk and owl are nesting!

I had a "quail block" out back, set up on a pair of logs to keep it off the wet ground. It's been pretty much eaten up now. I moved the logs, so that the quail could eat the seeds that had fallen between the logs.

I'd removed the grass mulch I had atop our strawberries and asparagus - hope I wasn't too early with doing that... given how warm it had gotten, to seemed like the right thing at the time. I did re-cover my few fall carrots and spinach.

(To 34 "Acme Trucking Enterprises" - planting bulbs and waiting for 6 months may indeed be a form of delayed gratification - but consider those of us who plant trees, knowing we may never see them at their full size. Husband and I planted some baby blue spruces, 6 inches high, and we will never see them full size, perhaps never see them taller than our waists. We haven't even planted our fruit trees yet, because those spruces are part of a windbreak for the fruit trees we *plan* to plant. We may never see the fruit of those trees - yet we will plant them anyway.)

(To 46 Winston, thank you for the warning about magpies being clever enough to open suet cages. We do have magpies that come to clean up under the seed feeder. I keep thinking about whether I want to try a suet cage, next time we have a cold winter. Sounds like I'd have to wire it shut!)

100 I do not put meat scaps in my compost, not a reason from experience but books when I started suggested not to as if a lot can get that decay smell. I actually do not mind the vegetable compost smell.

Thread before the Gardening Thread: The Liberal Revolt Against the Masses [KT]

Serving your mid-day open thread needs

obamacool2.jpg

Happy Saturday, Horde. I thought that about now would be a good time to get away from the news for a little history. The Assistant Village Idiot put up a post about an interview with Fred Siegel in Spiked Review. It is primarily about the rise of elitism within liberalism since the 1920s in America.

I didn't know much about Siegel. He was an advisor to Rudy Giuliani (after working for Democrats). He is now at the Manhattan Institute and writes at the New York Post, among other places. In 2013, he wrote a book titled The revolt against the masses: how liberalism has undermined the middle class.

He doesn't seem to be a big Trump fan, but he also thinks "The Resistance" is way off base. Anyway, interesting interview. Lots of bits of history that I didn't know. But since I live in the non-liberal part of California, this little vignette from the interview caught my eye:

Let me tell you about what happened at a party in California I went to on New Year's Eve. A lot of interesting, nice people were there. They asked me what I'm interested in, blah, blah, blah, and I would tell them, 'You know, I'm in favour of California resisting Trump. And more than that, I want California to secede.' And they look at me like I'm crazy. They say, 'Why would you, a guy from Brooklyn, want us to secede?'. 'Well', I say, 'you are definitely, I think we can all see, smarter and more virtuous than the rest of the country. You should be the people to take on Kim Jong Un.' When I say that, people literally slink away. . .

Heh.

Siegel places the beginning of liberalism in the 1920s with the formation of the ACLU. He sees HL Mencken as an inspiration to future liberals, although Mencken did not define himself as a liberal. He notes arguments for multiculturalism in The New Republic a hundred years ago. There are some interesting details and views about later eras, too. You might like to read it.

Obama was a child of the 1960s. He represented the institutionalisation of a liberalism that had gone off the rails - and he further pushed it off the rails.

Art History and Our Media

Siegel thinks the culture of the 1950s, when people where listening to symphonies and reading good books, gets a bad rap in our media.

Moving to this week, in its Critic's Notebook, the New York Times somehow failed to mention that the artist Obama chose to paint his official portrait had a history of painting black women holding the heads of decapitated white women. The critic did say that the artist had been busy "creating the collective image of a global black aristocracy".

Can't get more elite than an aristocracy.

So, are the masses back in those leaves somewhere?

Hope you have a good weekend.

5 The Revolt of the Masses is an excellent book. I've read it twice, and will read it again. The bottom line is that humanity hasn't changed over the millenia. It's always "I'm better than you, and should get to run your life". The problem is that being good at one thing doesn't make you good in other things. An even bigger problem is when you aren't good at anything, because you lack the ability, or more frequently, the drive. That's how you end up with Obama in a sea of poison ivy.

what the NEW and so debilitating un enlightened group in control of the country now try to tell us, Is we Can't.. they tell blacks they can't because race, they tell mexicans (American)they can't without them.

43 6 Sitting here in Phoenix now waiting for my connection to JFK. Oh by the way, did I mention that I hate waiting in airports."

Phoenix has got a damned nice one now - I remember back in the 60's, when it was still just a terminal left over from the WW2 era transit station for military cross country flights.

Worst - absolute worst - wait I ever had was in Albuquerque, after a Fiesta Bowl I went to. I flew out very late on Jan 2nd, knew I would have about a 5 hour wait in the terminal for my connecting flight to DFW - but no one told me, Albuquerque terminals close at midnight, and here were about 15 of us, at the gate, all booked on the next flight in 5 hours, and here comes Airport Security to boot us all out and tell us we had to go sit in the main lobby til 5 am when then they re-opened. And it had no heat.

I remember pulling together some chairs which didn't really work and pulling an old coat over my face from my bag to try and sleep, and then when the first workers started filtering in at 5, I'm sure they all thought I was some homeless bum that had just straggled in out of the cold, since that's what I looked like.

and as soon as I got home after laying all night in a cold cold terminal, i came down with terrible bronchitis that lasted 6 weeks. Yeah, that trip still pisses me off. No More Connecting Flights!!!

60 Good observation about the modern upper class left deriving from Mencken - I like to quote Mencken, I even like to read him in short spurts, and we have a Mencken quote on top of this blog - BUT - even those of us who like him should never let ourselves forget that deep down, Mencken hated People, and he especially hated Common People. Mencken hated America, he did, and his only justification was that he hated every other country too. Mencken hated blacks, and his only justification was that he hated arabs and chinese and everyone other ethnic group on the world just as much. There's plenty of writings of his that would make David Duke blush.

He hated everyone, and never tired of verbalizing that hatred. When someone asked him "why do you live in the US if you hate it so much?" Mencken simply replied "Why do men go to zoos?"

He is the perfect examplar of the snotty left's current mindset. And just like him, they despise real democracy, and they hate the United States.

I remember for a while in Marin County, north of San Fran, it was illegal to smoke tobacco cigarettes in one side of a duplex, because second hand smoke might seep through the walls and annoy the nosy neighbor. But at the SAME TIME marijuana was totally decriminalized in that county, and people weren't allowed to make any complaint calls about that at all.

So I guess you could smoke as many cigarettes as you wanted as long as you covered up the smell by burning some mary jane at the same time.

82 The Victim mindset is incredibly self destructive, and it is a crime the way our educational establishment and media are pushing so many young people into that today.

When you have a healthy mindset, and something goes wrong, you think "hmm, maybe I did something wrong that I can change, let me modify my behavior and see if I get better results."

when you have a Victim's mindset and something, anything, bad happens to you, you say to yourself "OHMIGOD, they did that because they were OUT TO GET ME!!! and I want REVENGE!!! and I will not change my behavior ONE TINY BIT because that means THEY WOULD WIN!!!"

and it guarantees that the person believing that will double down on self destructive behavior every chance they get. Kinda like the entire dem party is doing today.

Absolutely scathing indictment of everything about communist life, and cute little vignettes about all the professional-arts types. Ready?

I remember never really liking DC except for, IIRC, a daughter company named Vertigo (and I might be remembering that association totally incorrectly) and some of the Batman stuff at the time like "A Death in the Family."

Did everyone sort of either choose Marvel or DC, or was it just me?

119 You guys might appreciate this:

My 14 year old just played a CYO basketball game and his team won for the first time this year. They were on fire against a better, taller team, and they had no subs. It was a high scoring game. My husband was keeping score. One of the boys (one of my favorites) was doing great. After the game, while we were taking pictures, they came over and said, "Mr. Dagny, you were keeping score, do you remember how many points I had?"

Without missing a beat, my husband said, "6." The whole team looked confused. My husband said, "Oh, I'm a socialist, so since your teammates didn't score as many as you, I redistributed your points so that everyone had the same number." He did eventually tell him his "capitalist" number.

132 Disney, the studio behind Black Panther, has also faced pressure as a petition urges the studio to donate 25 percent of Black Panther's profits to the black community.

This week, actress Vivica A. Fox expressed support for the petition, which has received over 6,000 signatures, and accuses the Walt Disney Company and Marvel of exploiting the black community through specific marketing in an attempt to make money.


========

Disney uses marketing in order to try to trick people into seeing their crappy movies so that they can make a profit! Horrible! They'd never resort to that trick with whites I'll bet, only blacks. It's like slavery never ended.

Here's a thought: what if the director, screenwriters, and actors all worked gratis. Then the studio could afford to give black audiences a discount. No need for a rebate "donating 25% to the black community" which probably means the money will go into some sleazy Clintonesque organization and never be seen by the actual community.

It's just job security for them. The "poor" can't be fixed without putting millions of social workers (and university programs, and publishers, etc.), homeless shelters, grant-receiving whatevers, trickle-down state and local welfare program employees, and all the rest out of work.

191 I really don't think its that the Elites are rebelling against the Masses... I think its they believe they know better.

Problem is, that their entire philosophy is based on a number of flawed premises.

1. That we are not animals. That intellect can completely overcome a couple million years of evolution.

2. That you can reprogram people away from natural inclinations without consequence...

3. That Social Pressure can be used to completely control people... and there will be no backlash.

4. That Man is an inherently rational creature.. and they are the most rational, ergo should be in charge.

These premises are all flawed at an existential level... yet because they have managed to force their philosophy onto us... most people are unhappy.

Just like when you base a Geometric Proof on a flawed premise... it can look good but be wrong...

A Society based on flawed premises will fail, because the people are unhappy...

It was intentionally taken because the term "Socialism" was poorly considered by Americans in the 1800s.
When there was a pushback on this, the actual liberals, the classic or Jeffersonians were branded rugged individuals and unconcerned about the fate of other, less capable members of society.

Socialism at its roots is an attempt to address economic issues by changing society so that inequality can be automatically resolved (or ignored).
It moved from economic inequality to social inequality in the last 50 years, and appears to be moving on to some bizarre 'equality of experience' mindset.

(Granted, that is because it has proven incapable of reaching economic or social equality in the last 150 years, except for the equality found in a mass grave)

210 Siegel is interesting with broad scope, but still an old Democrat, so mostly "commie" when it comes down to it. imo Good read though. thx

I used to think the "crack in time" was in the 60's, especially with JFK, MLK and Vietnam, with the Beatles pushing the drug culture and others going even more acid trip Woodstock open sex commie.

But JFK was killed after promising to take down the (already in control) CIA and the secret society of criminals that ran media and more. Orwell, himself a socialist of the less aggressive sort as I understand it, wrote clearly (1984) of the more forceful socialist (communist) shortly after WW2.

But maybe we should look back at least another century to the 1860s with Lincoln trampling state rights and our constitution after he had read up on the socialist movement/revolution in Europe around 1848. In many ways we should be rethinkin' Lincoln.

There is an arrogance of the NY/DC coastal elite, but the root is raw greed and criminal syndicates. Their sales pitch to the rank and file is to assure the "liberal" sheep they are superior to the "deplorable and irredeemable", superior to we "xenophobic racists" that are patriots.

It's a cheap trick, a pat on the head before the slaughter. The left never wins the white vote nationally, they win every demo' of the "minorities" by always promising to steal from (racist, patriarchal, unfairly rich) whitey and give to the depraved and deprived -- the protected race, ethnicity, whatever agitprop group is at hand.

It has ALWAYS been Democrats that play to the philistines' most base instincts, as Obama's artist said "it is a play on the kill whitey thing". Our nation is a living people with heritage, not an academic theory of control.

216 Although I think Siegel yuuuugely inflates the influence of Mencken on modern elitism, it is useful to remember that hatred of the average man is not confined to the conventional Left.

Siegel notes that Mencken fell out of favor with Progressives when he turned on FDR and the New Deal.
But in the second half of the 20th century he (his zombie, i.e.) enjoyed a big resurgence in popularity among --- libertarians.

Long before the Libertarians devolved into a 2-issue party --- drugs and open borders --- there was something "off" about them. Their criticism of Progressive statism has been excellent, but they have always emitted a snotty odor.

I think that many libertarians, like leftists, have contempt for organic, ancient customs and tradition, and especially for (good) religion. Like leftists, they tend to see the world from a faculty-lounge perspective that often has no relation to the way that human beings actually operate in the world.

I'm guessing they just hijacked the term, the way they hijack institutions - it seems to be how they work. That said, it may be best just to acknowledge the term is lost and use it accordingly. I don't think people are for the most part interested in etymology - they hear "liberal" and they know it's "big government, pro-gay, pro-abortion, open borders".

The gentrification thing really irritates me. Whites moving into a ghetto, cleaning it up, improving property values, reducing crime, generally making it a nicer place to live - all bad. Very bad.

Blacks moving into a white neighborhood to get away from the toxic atmosphere of the ghetto, the squalor, the litter, the crime - that's A-OK.

Yet the result of the two is the same, an integrated neighborhood, just reached from opposite poles. How can anyone attack one and justify the other?

Yeah and people will keep treating it as a Culturally Relevant Historical Moment (c) but its just a fun and well-acted movie, from what I've read and heard.

There are definitely some ethical issues with a super-advanced high tech nation ignoring the horrors around it, but apparently the entire film's plot is about how Wakanda should use its tech. The bad guy wants to arm up black people so they can violently revolt against the world, and the hero wants to use the tech to help cure diseases, feed people, etc.

Oh, and "Black Panther" as a character was introduced in July 1966 in New York City, 3 months before the political party organization was created by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale in Oakland, California. I suppose its conceivable that somehow Jewish writer Stan Lee and Jewish artist Jack Kirby could somehow have heard of the radical Californians working on the foundation of the group but its unlikely to an extreme.

Neither really make sense: black panthers are South American.

Mandatory school attendance is exactly as effective, safe and productive as every other mandatory government thing.

You could tie off a repelling rope to the top rung. As long as there was someone on the south side holding the ladder down.
Posted by: Jean at February 17, 2018 02:06 PM (o3NFc)

Without a harness, the vast majority of people cannot climb DOWN a 40 ft. rope.

And it takes some training to be able to do it WITH a harness...

Exactly.

Plus, suppose you have two. How do you get the second one to the other side? Hmmm.

You're on top of a 40 foot wall. A 40 foot ladder is one side. How do someone get the second (very heavy) ladder up to you so you can maneuver it over to the other side while you are perched precariously on the rounded top of the wall?

Probably doable, but no mean feat. I certainly wouldn't want to try it.

Sure, you could probably tie a rope to the first ladder and rappel down the other side, but let's face it: that takes training, and no small amount of cojones to do.

--------------------------------
Matte lipstick generally doesn't look good on women 29 and older. Actually, it doesn't look great on younger women unless it's a perfect color.
I'm not keen on the super-super-shiny stuff either, mind you, but matte? Nope.
IMO.

And I do believe that it will get built, eventually. Sad to see it happen, because I don't think its needed but at this point its symbolic of Trumps entire presidency, so he has to do it.

BUT, put him on a flat roof outside, just inches higher than the indoor work site, and sweat would stand out on his forehead if he was within six feet of the edge. He knew it, he'd do it, but it just gave him the heebie-jeebies.

I was "training" on a job on a jack-up rig in Mobile Bay. Had to go up to the crown blocks of the derrick, and set up a depth encoder on the fast wheel. So I lash the encoder, a heavy, ungainly hunk of iron, to my back, stuff my pockets with U-bolts and nuts and washers, a Crescent wrench on a lanyard, hitch onto the climbing assist line, and head up the stick.

Got 'er all done; encoder is sending signals as it should. (Oh, I was dragging about 300 feet of four-conductor cab-tire cord, too.) Go to climb down, and the climbing-assist line is stuck. I jerked on it a few times, and then decided, "maybe that's no such a good idea". Climbed down without the assist. No fall-arrest line in those days, either. Go tell the assistant floor boss what happened. "Oh, you can't use the climbing assist all the way to the crown. The weight goes over the deck railing and hangs up. Climb back up there, and holler when you get to the top, and I will free the weight up for you."
So that's what I did. It's a long climb, especially hanging onto the ladder rungs with all 5 appendages.

I used to do injection molding plant maintenance. The last company I worked for, the big crane always seemed to break. More than once I found myself on a ladder which was perched atop two stacked 100k+ molds replacing clamps on the electrical tracks.

Used to climb all over the roof of our former house and the neatest thing ever was the felt wader soles you strapped on hip boots for wading around slippery crick beds. They would grab the shingles almost like velcro. Took the fear factor right out of it.

397 at 22 I would scamper up a 40 foot ladder with no worries. I once climbed straight up a ladder in a church to change a light bulb over the pulpit with a steep angled ceiling ... just one guy at the bottom helping balancing the ladder, leaning on nothing but air. A guy walked in to rehearse with his guitar and saw me up there and was like "holy shit" so helped hold the bottom.

I trusted God I guess, and it is not that difficult ... still stupid. Now I wear a safety harness and lanyard just to climb on the grain bin, which is maybe 25 feet.

My wife and I rented one of the recent reboots. Woman, space Spanish guy, space Ninja guy, and homosexual black robot are going to stop the Death Star from being built or whatever.

We turned it off halfway through because it was boring as sh*t. We were even drinking during it and it was boring as sh*t. I can't imagine how much worse it's going to get, although the riveting story of how Han Solo got his leather jacket or whatever is just a tale that everyone has always wondered about.

19 Tea Anyone.
An Arizona woman who has woken up with different accents three times in the past seven years said doctors traced the unusual condition to a rare disease.

Michelle Myers, a former beauty queen and mother of seven from Buckeye, said she has never even left the United States, but she woke from a headache-induced nap about seven years ago to find she was speaking with an Irish accent.

Myers said the accent lasted about a week, but about three years later the same thing happened again and she woke with an Australian accent, which also lasted about a week.


The rare disease could be Hillaryitis. Women should be mounting a presidential run.

64 9...teej, I got the True North CD and have been listening several times. Damn nice! I don't listen to much new original music these days. Mostly Baroque and earlier and jazz\great American Songbook stuff. If country and western still sounded like this I would be listening.

The mandolin and fiddle give the songs a great added element. I could hear the lyrics, which matters. And I realized that people can dance to these songs, which makes them more appealing.

Thanks for recommending them.

I used to play full court pu games at the Dallas downtown Y. A good game. At the beginning of a new game, I looked up and a girl was getting ready to match up with me. I looked at my friends and they told me that she was Nancy Leiberman. She was short, slow and couldn't jump. Other than that she was OK except she was an asshole. SAD
Posted by: Mr. Spackler at February 17, 2018 08:25 AM (VWsDy)


Back before the playgrounds became exclusive dens of brainless thugs and fuckheads, I used to play at the local park. I was in a game with my buddy Darryl when a couple tall girls show up saying they wanna run and I'm just rolling my eyes and thinking these mouthy whores are probably terrible. But Darryl wants me to play with him and them against four medium talent guys and I told him No; but he stays on me because he knows I'm not gassed and still have another game in me so I eventually cave. We kicked the guys' asses. The girls were constantly moving and fundamentally perfect in terms of knowing where to cut so I could throw them blind passes for layups. If they got their shots blocked they stayed with it and usually put it back in.

Talking to them afterwards I found out they were both Big Ten players (Ohio State and Wisconsin iirc) home for the summer and had finished runner up in the Hoop It Up tourney open category. So they're like in the top one percent of women players and I'm somewhere in the fat part of the bell curve, maybe to the left of the median, of all male players. But they weren't assholes at all.

Your comment made me think of the time I questioned a local City Commissioner candidate if he was a lesbian trapped in a man's body.

He was a straight-arrow conservative with a superb background in leadership and town management. The local TEA party had a "rough up the candidate" event to prepare him for the hostile local press.

He lost to a highly touted (by our leftist local paper) nonentity. Taxes were raised in the city every year for 4 yours. And now there are consultants asking why enrollment is down at the local land-grant university. Unreal.

Do you really think Progressives are going to let firearm support continue to grow without pushing back. What we are witnessing is the domestic version of Fast And Furious playing out on cable news.


When Scalia wrote in Heller that the 2nd Amendment was an individual right - it started a ticking time bomb against all gun control laws: 8 U.S. Code 242.


8 U.S. Code 242 is the Federal law written in 1948 that made all the Jim Crow laws in the south dead letter unenforceable - since it included up to a death penalty ( under certain circumstances ) for any law enforcement persons ( including judges and prosecutors ) who deny anyone their Constitutional rights "under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation,
or custom".

Scalia knew about 8 USC 242 - which is why he was so careful in his analysis about the 2nd amendment being an individual right.

I mentioned the concept of 'degree days' a couple weeks back and predicted an early spring because how little variation there is from winter to winter. Extreme cold like we had for a couple of weeks? Nature has a way of leveling that out.

Yeah, perfect would be 12 weeks of sunny 65 degree days and 50 degree nights. Instead we'll get a roller coaster ride of extremes, slightly higher on the high side.

191 the drug dealer who kidnapped nurses to give vaccinations -

he may be criminal, but that dealer in Brazil knows what it takes
to become an actual leader. I'd keep an eye on him. He may not
survive the rough and tumble world he's in, but if he does, he could end
up ruling Brazil some day.



There's no way he gets caught by the police now, he's got 10,000
desperately poor people who will all be willing to die to protect him.
Even the Brazilian police aren't bold enough to fight odds like that.

I vote for the polka dot dress: just a bit flirty and fun. The other option sounds a little too "showing off the goods" for a first date. I still remember the future Mrs. Cop wearing a polka dot dress when we had just begun dating **mumble** years ago.

Posted by: TheQuietMan at February 17, 2018 08:58 AM (SiINZ)

When someone's banned, all their posts disappear, I think. But he said that anyone who says cuck (like ace did in the beginning of the thread) is a cuck themselves, and that was all she wrote.

Posted by: josephistan at February 17, 2018 09:41 AM (ANIFC)

216 I never saw what others did in BSG. He'd either repeat certain words over and over again, like "Winona" or Smoothies, giggling to himself as if it were the funniest thing in the world. He sounded like a retarded child with Tourette's.

Or, when he argued, it was always based on an intentionally vague, obtuse misreading of the opposing position.

Example, when the Pope announced he wanted to change the wording of the Lord's Prayer and some folks were unhappy with that, his response was "The Bible wasn't written in English", as if THAT were the argument as to why it shouldn't be done. He was always careful never to lay out his position, lest he be forced to enter into an honest discussion.

The main reason he commented was that he enjoyed being a nuisance, so naturally to maximize that he'd continue relapsing into that behavior as long as it was tolerated. You could see the timeouts weren't going to do anything.

But finally, it's come. We are BSG free. At last.

I couldn't figure out what happened, and restarted the computer to get it back to normal. It didn't work. I went to Apple's website and eventually found out that is actually a "feature" with Macs. Control+Option+Command+8 reverses the colors on the monitor. Weird but kind of neat. I don't know if Windows computers have their own way to do that. It sure freaked me out at the time.

I do know that the scholarship involved in the KJV was impressive, even now, and almost impossible to imagine at the time. One of the highlights of the English language and astonishing translation work. That is the version I think in, but others people like newer translations with newer scholarship.

As well they should. Someone earlier mentioned operation Fast and Furious. That put into words the vague feeling I've had that either federal law enforcement is too incompetent to be allowed to continue, or else they are okay with the body count if it leads to disarming the citizens. Given the progressives at the top of O's administration, I can no longer automatically attribute to stupidity that which may be caused by malice. The last administration's willingness to plead stupidity or incompetence when the question arose always made me wonder what they were really up to.

352 So I guess my chores are done -- and by that, I mean I watched the first episode of "Space: 1999" on YouTube.

If the nuclear waste on the far side of the moon explodes and propels the moon out of its orbit, wouldn't it move the moon inward toward earth? Overthinking it, I guess. Barbara Bain is easy to look at, but no more of that show for me. If I need a Bain fix, I'll look for that movie in which the Harlem Globetrotters play basketball against robots on Gilligan's Island.

Ditto.

The field of athletes are there every time, having become professional amateurs. The events themselves are less than compelling. The coverage is atrocious.

That leaves the prospect of seeing someone taking a knee on the medal stand as my only reason to watch, but considering it's the Winter games, this bit of drama seems unlikely.

Well the good news is I don't think you can mess up too badly. You said you mostly want to check mail/web and play solitaire, yeah? Well the Kindle Fire line Polliwog recommended will do that just fine. There are reasons to avoid the Kindles (being locked into the Kindle app store mostly) but they don't apply to you and could be a benefit (less chance of crapware). Apple stuff tends to be supported forever and doesn't go obsolete very fast, so a refurb iPad from 2014 or whatever should still work fine for at least 5 years. And then there's whatever Android stuff happens to be on sale at Staples or Meijer or whatever, which will probably do whatever you need it to.

448 I exercize for work, or for health.

Usually I'd make the spelling joke here, but I'm going to skip it this once out of respect for the revered Naval practitioner, Dr. Kegel.

Except for a few displays of "floor exercises," there's no exercise in the Olympics. We go over this every time, but -- the tradition always has been, to meet the Olympic definition of "Sport," an activity must derive from war.

So swimming and running get in the gate by way of Modern Pentathlon, in fact the set was fantasized by Baron de Coubertin for just that reason. They had gold medals in liberal arts for the first few, just out of Greekiness. First double gold was in IIRC, rifle and sculpture. To an American, heh.

454 I haven't had TV for several years, but the last few times I watched the Olympics I thought the coverage was awful. There would be all those "human interest" stories about the American athletes, while they would totally ignore events that didn't feature American athletes.

I tuned in for the sporting events, not to learn about some skater's Downs Syndrome brother. Sorry if that sounds harsh.

But it's kind of bizarre when I, an American nationalist, am more interested in watching actual competitions featuring foreigners than watching a story about an American weightlifter's charity work.

They packed me down to the ER in a heartbeat. Now I am back on the catheter and pee-bag until I go back for surgery.

I never can figure out what gun control means. You hear thing like assault weapons ban that really mean any AR looking device. You hear gun shows meaning private sellers. But do they mean ending guns sales? Rounding up guns?

After watching the Love Boat, I had thought the drinks were free. Never saw any money exchanging hands. So, I was making plans to one day make a cruise and drink the entire day.
Then a buddy of mine went on one. At the time you didn't just swipe a credit card, and at the end of the cruise you had to settle up. He said a lot of people that didn't quite understand how it adds up were looking at a big charge at the end of their three day cruise.

Letting crazy / evil people walk around free isn't working out so well. I propose we relocate everyone with a psych profile similar to (the latest broken soul whose name I actively forget) to a gated community in their home state.

Because we have such compassion, we should start with the most expensive gated communities, and fill each one to the 5% level before overflowing to the next most expensive.

114 Back in the 1990s, it seemed that almost everyone wanted to be like Michael Jordan.

But apparently those days are over.

his week the U.S. Air Force Academy issued an apology after a commandant cited the former pro basketball star as an exemplar of good grooming and professional appearance.

He was never seen with a gaudy chain around his neck, his pants below his waistline, or with a backwards baseball hat on during public appearances, Master Sgt. Zachary Parish wrote in an email to cadets, according to the Gazette in Colorado Springs.

But some recipients of Parishs email took offense, interpreting his message not as well-intentioned advice, but as a slight against African-Americans, the newspaper reported.

Let me apologize for the email sent earlier today by our first sergeant, Col. Julian Stevens wrote, according to the newspaper. The comments were very disrespectful, derogatory and in no way reflective of (cadet wing) permanent party views.

Microagressions such as these are often blindspots/unintentional biases that are not often recognized, and if they are recognized they are not always addressed, Stevens added.

But even the colonels message drew criticism, as some Air Force sergeants writing on Facebook accused the officer of being overly sensitive.

This is a perfect example of why were going to lose a war with Russia/China, one commenter wrote, according to the Gazette.

The Navy is asking Congress to fund a conversion of its 600-foot stealth destroyers from primarily a land attack ship to an anti-surface, offensive strike platform, according to budget documents released Feb. 12.

The services 2019 budget request includes a request for $89.7 million to transform its Zumwalt-class destroyers by integrating Raytheons long-range SM-6 missile, which can dual hat as both an anti-air and anti-surface missile, as well as its Maritime Strike variant of the Tomahawk missile.

130 And I love college football but suspect I'll quit watching it eventually, too. I despise the QB being able to just fling the ball wherever downfield so long as someone was also downfield at some point and not having to worry about intentional grounding calls.

If you want to take the gamble and scramble to avoid the sack (or get all dual threat), fine. But that's what makes it a gamble. This "get out of jail free" BS is ridiculous when every QB runs these days.

Regarding the Zumwalt DDG's:

They were supposed to support the Marines with off-shore fire from their "big guns" that don't have any ammo. They would, if so equipped, be serious long range shooters for the Navy to use in the South China Sea. There are 3 different missiles being looked at; SM-6 dual roll, LRASM and a Naval variant of the Tomahawk.

The Navy is asking Congress to fund a conversion of its 600-foot stealth destroyers from primarily a land attack ship to an anti-surface, offensive strike platform, according to budget documents released Feb. 12.

The services 2019 budget request includes a request for $89.7 million to transform its Zumwalt-class destroyers by integrating Raytheons long-range SM-6 missile, which can dual hat as both an anti-air and anti-surface missile, as well as its Maritime Strike variant of the Tomahawk missile.

I have always said that if you want to solve the "refugee issue" (and by "solve" I mean stop stupid leftards in NYC and LA from thinking we should have lots of them) then all the government needs to do is buy some ritzy buildings on Manhattan's Upper West side, or houses in Beverly Hills, and put a refugee family in each room of the structures, except bathrooms and kitchens, of course). That way all those refugees can have access to that wonderful real estate and the American dream and the lefty liberals can enjoy the "diversity" they so crave.

Same thing with illegal immigrants ~ and the government would not even have to spend a lot of $$ I think only one or two townhouses on the UWS and one or two Beverly Hills estates and the problem would end as the leftards would be begging for an end to refugees and illegal immigration. I would give it a month.

Even if they get their weapons, I'll be surprised if the Zumwalts are ever used except against enemies with little to no naval offensive capability. They're too few and too expensive to risk, and with a tiny crew of about 140 manning a ship the size of a WWII cruiser, their ability to sustain and repair battle damage is suspect.

It's as if the designers forgot that in the question of whether your ship is effective and survivable, the enemy also gets a vote.

Levin talked about it a couple months ago ... major drug running overlooked (covered up) by some of these "top men" that are now implicated in the dossier insurance plan. (yeah, their crimes needed a backup escape route ... insurance)

A big part of it was Obama letting Hezbollah run cocaine (into the US) for their profit, and profit (it seems) for several of the deep state types that could get diplomatic clearance for transport.

this link is Levin from Dec 19, 2017, the drug running seems to be a big part the revenue stream for the cabal (plus other underworld pay for play -- humans, drugs, weapon tech, uranium ... all for sale, big money, plus breaking America also advances the globalist takeover).

"What the Obama administration did under cover of darkness is worse than any administration in modern American history,"

Levin also says the the NeverTrumpers have lost their moorings. Mueller was director of the FBI when this took place. And the Strzok jerk is in the thick of it.

215 Do you really think Progressives are going to let firearm support
continue to grow without pushing back. What we are witnessing is the
domestic version of Fast And Furious playing out on cable news.



When Scalia wrote in Heller that the 2nd Amendment was an individual right - it started a ticking time bomb against all gun control laws: 8 U.S. Code 242.

8 U.S. Code 242 is the Federal law written in 1948 that made all the Jim Crow laws in the south dead letter unenforceable - since it included up to a death penalty ( under certain circumstances ) for any law enforcement persons ( including judges and prosecutors ) who deny anyone their Constitutional rights "under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation,
or custom".

Scalia knew that - which is why he was so careful in his section on the 2A being an individual right.

the wilder claims are that some sort of MK Ultra triggers were used to not only ignore warnings, but to push Cruz into action mode ... drug change or other sneaky method. idk

and not just F&F, but Hasan at Fort Hood was a known likely jihadist (also in a gun free zone). The whole open borders push, San Bernadino, Boston bombers, the MS13 welcome mat from Obama, Trayvon/Brown/Freddie riots organized by Sharpton/Holder ...

They seem happy to use dead kids in gun free zones to push the agenda of disarming their victims nationally.

Posted by: Village Idiot's Apprentice at February 17, 2018 08:21 AM (EyPfd)






And the automation equipment that allows for a smaller crew requires PMS checks as well as the regular war-fighting equipment. So the labor-saving equipment isn't really labor-saving at all, it merely shifts the timetable of the labor to maintenance periods rather than operational periods.

To be fair, an argument can be made that this is desirable, but I'm not seeing it myself.

I was reading about this on the Air Force amn/nco/snco page on Facebook. Not only did that colonel slap down the First Sergeant, he did it publicly. All that First Sergeant did was remind the cadets that they weren't going to any old university but that they were going to be members of the Air Force and to act accordingly. We have big problems and things like this combined with many other things I see indicate to me that we are not ready to go to war with a relatively equal adversary.

78 That F-16 from the Viper Demo Team was from Shaw AFB, SC. I was a member of that squadron when it was reactivated in 1994. We had come up from Homestead AFB as the 309th Fighter Squadron after Hurricane Andrew. We became the 79th Fighter Squadron later and the 309th flag went to Luke AFB, Az. the way to tell the squadron is to look at the top of the vertical tail for the yellow and black paint strip, and the SW tells you it is a Shaw jet.

148 Most large wild animals will avoid humans. An older sick bear or cougar may go after a full sized human but that's rare. Young ones are usually just curious and that can be dangerous.
I do feel badly about the dog. His owner was not careful enough. I do carry in the mountains almost always. I've encountered black bears and cougars both. The Cascades have a good collection of critters that can kill you. There's even a wolf pack nearby.
That said, I mostly carry because of the two legged predators.

We had three toy poodles. Their combined weight was less than 20 pounds. If they heard something outside they would form a ring around Mrs. JTB to protect her. If she wasn't around to protect, they hid behind me. Apparently I was the alpha puppy. We still smile thinking about it.

Hah !!!

Story Time ? Hell Yeah ... Story Time !!!

So - I do Automation and Controls. Think Factory Stuff. It's really not that hard once you know how.

So - in the nineties, when I started, linking the controllers out on the Factory Floor to computers to track inventory and stuff was really just getting started.

So - of course - that's when Factory Managers and Production Managers started wanting to see EXACTLY what was going on with the production lines - in real time. Why ? Well ... because it was cool, I guess.

So my dumb ass - not even five years out of school - gets asked in a meeting ...

Manager - Scogg, this data on my computer screen, how accurate is it ?

Scogg - well, within in a few seconds.

Manager - What can you do to make it faster.

Scogg - Why ? You don't do anything about shit you knew last month.

But banana? (Seems much milder than pineapple to begin with.) Maybe certain fruits have something in them when super-ripe that older peeps (over 2 might react to.

Reminds me of a (probably apocryphal) story of the days under Uncle Joe. The Politburo thought it would be a good idea to show Soviet subjects "The Grapes of Wrath" to show them how tough life was under Capitalism. The idea was shitcanned when the reaction was "America is so rich, even peasants have pickup trucks".

419 I was stalked by a cougar one time. I was walking alone and unarmed about twilight. I rounded a bend and there the cougar was, maybe 25 feet away. We saw each other at the same instant and he crouched as if to pounce. I didn't run (and this was 40 years ago when running was a real option). I looked him in the eye and stared him down. Then the zoo closed and I had to leave.

492 you're gonna make mistakes. Its called being human. Instant success is a myth, yeah it may happen, but its pretty rare. Failing is also human, if everything always went 100% as planned there would be nothing to strive for. When things come too easy you just don't appreciate them as much.

You know what, you live once. Fuck those people. You answer to one person....YOU. Your life is your voyage. You know how many times I had older relatives tell me I was fucking up. I was the original guitar player of a well known speed metal/thrash band. I showed an uncle a picture of the band at the time. He tells me he wouldn't hire them. I looked at him straight in the face and say don't worry, we don't do fucking retirement parties asshole. I had another uncle tell me to cut my hair and join society, I told him to join my fucking dick in holy matrimony. I had people trying to mold me my entire life. You know what? I had more fun than any of them. They may have more money in some cases, but they are boring fucking people. Fuck that noise, you are master and commander of your own life.

Posted by: Berserker-Dragonheads Divison at February 17, 2018 12:22 AM (aMlLZ)

517 You know one thing I have not heard anyone mention recently?

Maybe three or four years ago (before the theater shooting with the one idiot who thought he was the Joker?) I remember a lot of people pointing out that the left wanted to resurrect the Assault weapons ban in response to shootings. However, up to that point, hardly any AR's or similar had been used in those types of shooting. So there was a contradiction in that the main weapon that libs wanted to ban was not the one being used.

There are a few things that strike me about this now that ARs have moved into use in this type of thing:

1) Did the left bang this drum so relentlessly that it pushed these nuts into a new form of weapon? Did they preach so vociferously on the deadliness of these weapons that they essentially 'sold' them to these nuts?

2) Notice now how the narrative never changes? The assault weapon ban was always meant to be the camel's nose under the tent wall. They just never had the stones to go whole hog (or the lunacy.)

3) The heartening thing about all this is that the window seems to have been successfully moved on this one. Even though you have the usual suspects, even the dems in congress, as crazy as they are, are not in full support of even a resurrection of the assault weapon ban. This is an encouraging thing, though probably not a good thing to get complacent.

I was online shopping, and one dealership had a 2017 Hyundai Accent hatchback, used. $15k.

Well, they did have that ep in the 2nd OST where Ryo Ohki reformed into a humanoid girl when she absorbed the masses (if I'm remembering that right).

I actually have an original Ryo-Ohki plush from waaaay back when but I don't remember there ever being a Ryo Ohki/Sasami plush. I'm tempted to search Google/Pixiv but I'm afraid of what'd pop up.

Big ice, Czechs (so, lots of speed and smart hockey), still very physical. Wild over-time. Dramatic shoot-out. Hockey as it should be. So much more exciting than any other team sport, there's no comparison.

No.

Washu is Ryoko's mother. Mihoshi is related to Washu and hence Ryoko but I forget to what degree, IIRC granddaughter or a daughter that's younger than Ryoko. Ayeka is Yosho's sister, and hence is the... well, sister of Tenchi's grandfather and she's trying to bob Tenchi's knob. Sasami is Ayeka's younger sister, but Sasami almost died and merged her physical/psycho-spiritual form with Tsunami, one of Jurai's ancient magical tree spirits and hence is arguable many thousands of years old. Of course Washu is 20,000 years old at least and Ryoko is at least 700 years old (700 years is how long she was imprisoned on earth and supposedly she knocked over almost 1000 planets so conclude for yourself how old she is)

In conclusion, Tenchi is only directly related to Ayeka and Sasami and Sasami isn't even in the running romantically for obvious reasons.

In shorter conclusion, I'm a weeb and too stuck in the past.

630 I never got into the 'loser gets a harem and doesn't know what to do with it' anime. For a long time, there was a steady stream of them.

It was/is damn hard to find a male protagonist that wasn't a wet dishrag and where the girls weren't all teenagers. I like my women in the 25-40 range, so despite the cute, a lot of anime doesn't really 'work' for me.

do you prefer, olympics with NHL or without? I'm sure it killed ratings
overall, so we will see if the IOC keeps up the NHL ban.

So far the quality has been good. No dominant team so it's been very competitive. And it wasn't the IOC with the ban, it was the NHL. They didn't want to shut down the season for two weeks or risk some of their best players getting hurt in the middle of the year.

Posted by: tu3031 at February 17, 2018 12:57 AM (O5Q3r)

639 LizLem, doesn't matter. I don't know the NHL players anyway. The ice is bigger, the rules on interference, holding, and a few other things (too many men on the ice, interestingly) are actually enforced, and the style is different. Apples and oranges, often, because it's just different playing for your flag (esp. for many players from smaller European countries).


Didn't know there was an NHL ban. I think the Olympics is in an impossible position when it comes to team sports. Either way works for me.


Tonight's game was interesting in that it was as physical as any NHL game, even with the international ice, and rules. But still, the speed. And the 3 on 3 over-time is pure genius (comparable to the NCAA football over-time thing).


I find the NHL fairly boring because season is way too long, players are so big now that the ice is really too small (not much fluid action or play making), and dump-and-chase has gone from being one style to almost the only style. Boring.

Posted by: Robert at February 17, 2018 12:58 AM (ayUOl)

Steve Den Beste talked me into one of the side Tenchi series. Set in space, space princesses and space cops...it's on the shelf somewhere.

Tenchi is just such a doormat, or punching bag. I couldn't 'see' myself in him.

650 Robert just remember one thing about Tenchi. They went Kelvin timeline long before JJ Abrams messed up Star Trek.

Manga continuity <> OVA which <> TV series.

Funny anime.

Liked the manga also, though there were differences (in the manga, the professor/inventor wasn't a pedophile while the "Martian Princess" was just a junkie).

Also, the manga had the funniest character not in the anime.

That's... very cute, actually. Really, most of the character backstories are downright tragic if you think about it. Tenchi loses his mother at young age and his dad is a perv. Washu is a living god, has a child torn from her and is betrayed by her first husband. Ryoko is a an easily mind-controlled alcoholic that has trouble managing her emotions at all well, and essentially gets brainwashed into massacring hundreds of planets for a deranged transgendered psychopath. It's also heavily implied that her childhood was probably not... all that pleasant and Washu won't be winning any mother-of-the-year awards.
Yosho flees his home planet and fiance out of a sense of fear of commitment, stranding himself on earth and literally leaving her for HUNDREDS OF YEARS as she searches the galaxy for him saving herself for him. Her only company are Azaka, Kamadaki, and her little sister who isn't even her little sister any more since she FUCKING DIED accidentally because of Ryoko's attack and who has merged forms with the spirit of a space tree, and the spirit projection is more attractive than her and she is legitimately jealous of her little sister-ghost. She later finds out that even fucking Ryoko has a leg up on her in the romance department (mitigated only by Ryoko's charming social retardation) since she spent most of Tenchi's childhood watching over him in ghost form. Mihoshi is Washu's other daughter and former A+ detective for GXP, and gets sucked into a hell dimension and her mind scrambled to keep her from dying.Tenchi just wanted to live a normal life and gets all this baggage out of nowhere. Really, if not for the timing it'd be one of the biggest tragedies ever written. Everybody is fucked up all to hell.

699 Of the shows starting up this winter, the ones I've been liking most are:

"Itou Junji:Collection:"

An anthology of horror manga-ka Itou Junji. Some are better than others, but definitely good for the "creepy" horror fan.

"Pop Team Epic"

It's basically s**tposting, memes, and trolling as expressed in one of the purist forms of Dadaism known to the modern world. The fact that they repeat a short episode with male instead of female voices (with minor changes to one part) underscores that.

Other new anime this season:

"Death March through the Parallel World Rhapsody"

Another show based on a light novel series that it pushed out like through a meat grinder, though in this case there is something about it that I don't mind. Perhaps it is the "Gary Stu" acting reserved, or the supporting characters not being pure stand-ins...

"Citrus"

Psychologically hurt high school girl lesbianically forces herself upon her high school step-sister. Further lesbianics occur.

"Darling in the FranXX"

Wins the award for most sexual references that aren't direct and obvious references. "Pestle and Stamen" system where a male adolescent controls a female adolescent doggy style withing a giant mecha to defeat kaiju. Lots of buzz I'm hearing about this, but still...

"Slow Star"

A "healing anime" where a girl who started high school a year late is coping with it and having fun with friends. Good show to let your brain turn to mush at the end of a long work week.

"Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san"

Girl teases boy she likes who always falls for her tricks. Eh.

"Mitsuboshi Colors"

Three little girls imaging they are protecting their town. Another "healing anime" to help one ignore real life.

"Märchen Mädchen"

Something about magical girls gaining the powers of old fairy tails or something. Tries to be more than it is.

"Killing Bites"

Japanese super-conglomerates turn people into human/animal hybrids to fight for their amusement. Story centers around a girl with Honey Badger powers who so far is not only not giving a s**t, but f**king everyone else's s**t up.

"Hakumei to Mikochi"

Like "David the Gnome" but less gay.

"Takunomi"

Single women old enough to drink who talk about alcohol.

"Beatless"

Something about a Milquetoatst finding a robot chick and shenanigans are afoot.

"Nanatsu no Bitoku"

The seven Heavenly virtues descend to Earth to find the Earthly incarnation of the Messiah, while being as erotic as unintentionally possible.

700 But on this particular day in 2005, after several hours of driving on rural, two-lane highways, I pulled up to a staggering sight. Literally, as far as the eye could see, were massive wind turbines - gigantic machines that created the effect of an army of alien robots coming to take over eastern Colorado.

I exhaled and mentally fell to my knees. The sweet smell of grass, the cool breeze - and the sound! The whoosh, whoosh, whoosh of the turning turbines was disturbingly disorienting. I looked to the horizon and was surprised to find that I was dizzy. This was wind energy?

It was an emotional moment, but not for the reasons I might have imagined when I decided to sign up for wind energy. I turned my attention back to the natural gas facility I was permitting. One lonely acre that had already been subjected to numerous cultural and biological surveys and a forest's worth of paperwork requirements. Which had more overall environmental impact?

INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis police are looking for a woman who they say threw her own feces at an employee of an east side Menards Tuesday.

According to an incident report filed in the case, IMPD officers were dispatched to the Menards location at 7701 E. 42nd Street near Pendleton Pike around noon Tuesday.

They spoke with the store's loss prevention officer. He told them he spotted a woman take a video camera out of its box and place it into her open personal bag.

When the loss prevention officer attempted to stop the woman from leaving the store, she "dug into her pants and pulled out a handful of feces and threw it at him, striking him on his chest."

The loss prevention officer said the woman then ran out of the door.

Police said the stolen camera was eventually recovered, and investigators were able to recover surveillance video. The woman had not yet been identified.

Whoops, double checked, looks like I'm spreading fake news.

"The NHL made it official last April 4 that it wouldn't allow players to go, after saying for months the majority of owners were not in favor of going."

Sounds like they don't want to take away 17 days from the season, risk injuries, and deal with the crapfest that is the IOC.

You are literally looking at happiness.


Bullshit. What you are looking at is a physical phenomenon associated with happiness. This is not the same as the experience of happiness. Experience is irreducible to physical phenomena.

What if you were locked in a black and white room your whole life, never experiencing color, but you knew red light had such-and-such wavelength, blue another, etc. You knew biologically how light affects the eyes and brain.

Then one day you are released from the room and see color for the first time. Would you be getting new information? It seems so. Your experience is not reducible to the physical facts you knew when inside the room.

streiff: Today's Indictments Were a Nothingburger, and If You Disagree, Your Name Must Be Adam Schiff

Good digest of what's in the indictments and, criticially, what's not in them, like any allegation of the non-crime of collusion.

The project began in 2013 as a way of attempting to cause confusion in the U.S. presidential campaign. Mission accomplished. This indictment is a nothingburger. It tells us damned little we didn’t know from press accounts and there are no arrests on the horizon. Two of the three entities were already sanctioned so indicting them does nothing. There is absolutely nothing in here that even hints that the Russians involved in this had any help from anyone in the U.S. Maybe that indictment is coming but there is not a hint of it here.

This interference is exactly what Comey described around September 2016 when he said the object of the Russians was to create division. There is no evidence presented here that there was any greater goal than creating turmoil.

The interference seems aimed at bolstering what all of us thought were the LEAST LIKELY candidates in the primary: Trump, Sanders, Stein. The Russians attacked Cruz and Rubio and other GOP candidates as well as Clinton. After the election they helped organize anti-Trump rallies.

More importantly, there is no evidence here that there was any coherent strategy–or that they really knew what they were doing–beyond garden variety trolling.

I mentioned Adam Schiff in the headline because someone leaked to Bloomberg that progressives and NeverTrumpers (but I repeat myself) shouldn't give up hope yet because Mueller might still be looking into the non-crime of "collusion," and John Sexton snarks that that anonymous source is probably just Adam Schiff with a big stupid fake mustache and a little boy-sized t-shirt that says TOTALLY NOT ADAM SCHIFF.

21 btw, check out Lee Smith's piece at the Federalist. He lays out the evidence and HINTS, without saying it (defamation and all), that the various people putting out the drumbeat of collusion (before this was ever even a topic) were probably being fed that by FusionGPS, to prepare the media battlespace.

I would add in, apropos of nothing, that Fusion GPS pays reporters for "research."

So that's got me curious. And if we're investigating the subversion of elections, I'd like reporters asked by Congress, under oath, whether they take money to plant Fusion GPS stories.

If they wanted to disrupt the GOP memo, they would have released it immediately or leaked it to muddy the waters.

Or maybe it's just big load of cucka and the FBI shits are telling the Democrats that it doesn't help.

45 29- well, we did buy a car today. We have a 2000 Mitsubishi, and a 2003 van, and needless to say, they have seen better days. Saved our pennies, and were able to pay cash, which makes a huge difference. So that was hubby's valentine, a car that doesn't look or sound like it's from the junk lot.

OK, so now we know that the Russki's have been messing with the US
electoral system since what, the 1920's 1930's when there was a very
active Communist party in the US? And they're just now getting around to
bitching about the Russian interference in US politics now since Her
Thighness lost the election? Like I said about Pelousi earlier. She
checks under her bed every night for Russians. The only difference now
is that she doesn't bring him milk and cookies.

48 35 Comey's book is titled "A Higher Loyalty."

Sounds like a Commie's justification for treason.

Alberto Gonzalez basically says Comey is a big fat liar in regard to his recollection of a scenario that they were both present. Of course he said it an a polite lawyerly manner.

also likely that every precinct in certain Cali cities were stuffed full of uncast votes, sort of like that which can never be mentioned again in detroit.

53 If it's a federal crime for foreigners to interfere in U.S. elections, when can we expect the indictment of the millions of **illegal aliens who vote**?

And, how about indictments of the legislatures, governors, mayors, etc. that aid and abet in a **CONSPIRACY** to help them vote??????

64 And that brings us up to date on the school shooting. In other news, the investigation into Trump and Russia was concluded with 13 Russians indicted and a clear connection established in trying to influence the election. And now back to the school shooting.
