"Fat Acceptance" Spokesmonster and "Fat Sex Therapist" Claims That Putting Your Kids on a Diet Is the Equivalent to Statutory Rape, Claims That Promoting Fitness is Akin to "Nazi Eugenics"

You know who else championed fitness?

You think I'm making the Hitler joke but I'm not, really -- this gender nonconforming landwhale actually goes there.

I usually do not attack fat acceptance people because I think they are sad. Literally sad. I think they are mentally unbalanced and cannot cope with their appearance and health problems so they've constructed a self-justifying mythology along with a vengeance-seeking, attack-the-fit-people conspiracy theory.

And none of that's good, but let's face it: It's coming from a place of severe depression, likely mental health problems, and very likely physical health problems, along with a likely brief lifespan.

So I usually don't even mention these people. They're easy targets, obviously. I mean, literally, you know? Lot of wiggle room on your aim.

But... this is too much, and this is also being subsidized by colleges which are in turn being subsidized by American taxpayers.

With people being deplatformed every single day, should someone spreading dangerously false junk-food-science be feted on college campuses?

I have to pay for this? You have to pay for this? We have to collectively pay for desperate and broken people to spread their self-justifying conspiracy theories to others? And infect healthy minds with these sad delusions and mythologies?

Let's be brutal now. And let's stop paying money to lunatics to transmit their lunacies to others.

Enough.

Sonalee Rashatwar...

It's spelled "manatee." Jeeze, get a dictionary.

...the therapist in question, delivered her polemic in a two-hour lecture at St. Olaf College, Minnesota last week.

Take a guess which departments co-hosted this event.

Puzzlingly, the lecture was hosted by the university's Wellness Center, in conjunction with the Women's and Gender Studies Department.

Did you guess right? I knew you would.

I kinda set you up for an easy one there.

"I truly believe that a child cannot consent to being on a diet the same way a child cannot consent to having sex," [this pork even horizon] declared, adding: "I experience diet culture as a form of assault because it impacts the way that I experience my body."

Fatty McGoo, a beer truck couldn't impact the way you experience your body without a five-mile run-up.

By the way, this jowly earthshaker identifies as a "non-binary unicorn."

The reason you don't see a horn on this "unicorn"? It was amputated due to diabetes, naturally.

While the overwhelming medical consensus recognizes obesity as a cause of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes, and premature death, Rashatwar joins a growing number of 'fat acceptance' and 'health at every size' activists who argue otherwise. Science, she told the crowd, is a white supremacist tool designed to oppress the obese.

I've heard that. All The Things are white supremacist systems of control, really.

"We should be critical of the use of science and the production of knowledge to continue promoting this idea that certain bodies are fit, able, and desirable… is it my fatness that causes my high blood pressure, or is it my experience of weight stigma?" Rashatwar, who uses the gender-neutral 'they/them' pronouns, asked.

1, it's the first one. Your extreme morbid obesity causes your high blood pressure.

2, for the first time, I'm going to go ahead and say I'm okay with the usage of the plural pronouns here.

When you weigh as much as the average bowling team, yeah, you've earned that pluralization.

But there's more:

"Fatphobic" science is "often actually eugenic science… eugenic science is Nazi science," she continued.

After denying the link between obesity and high blood pressure, Rashatwar attempted to link Christchurch mosque slayer Brenton Tarrant's murder spree with his love for physical fitness.

"I do not think it's surprising that the man who shot up Christchurch, New Zealand was also a fitness instructor," the self-described "Donut Queen" said. She argued that the shooting was "a clear communication that there's still an idealized body. Nazis really love this idea of an idealized body, and so it makes a lot of sense to me that a fitness instructor... might also think about an idealized body in this thin white supremacist way."

I'm going to suggest you hit the link even though it's Russia Today because they have some Instagram snaps of this Extinction-Level-Event in a Mumu, including one of Them eating a carrot which is labeled "Fat ASMR."

This is what the Women's and Gender Studies programs are doing with your money on government-subsidized colleges.

Two videos below, one from Infinite Elgintensity, the other from Tim Pool. Because I know you all want visuals to go along with this Immoveable Feast.

Gotta admit, the joke about "impacting the way I experience my body"? I didn't exactly steal it from Infinite Elgintensity, but... yeah well I stole the basic idea.

I think it would have occurred to me to make that kind of joke with the word "impact" anyway, but, yeah, I did hear the basic gist of the joke from Infinite Elgintensity first.

Tim Pool makes the point that this person is not just physically unwell, but mentally unwell, and schools are hosting this person so that They can virally spread their "neurodivergent" mentally-unwell ideas to people who are themselves vulnerable to such influence.

We're paying crazy people to teach other crazy people how to be crazier, in other words.

And the left, which is eager to call people "denialists" if they notice that the evidence for global warming is very thin, will absolutely not call out colleges or their fellow leftists for peddling this kind of anti-science lunacy, because the morbidly obese and mentally unwell gender-nonconforming unicorn demographic is actually one of their most passionate activist blocs.

And I do mean blocks.

It's one thing for this madness to spread on Tumblr. If Tumblr has found its niche as "InstaGram for Morbidly Obese Girls," fine. I've never said a damned thing about this before.

But now on colleges? Sponsored by (alleged) real, truth-seeking departments?

Paid for by students and taxpayers generally?!

No. That's a step too far. Back to Tumblr you go, hambeasts.

How hard can it be, right? I was a super picky eater when I was little. I heard "because I said so, dammit" and "do as you're told" about 400 million times. Then I started eating what was put in front of me without complaint.

106 I usually do not attack fat acceptance people because I think they are sad. Literally sad. I think they are mentally unbalanced and cannot cope with their appearance and health problems so they've constructed a self-justifying mythology along with a vengeance-seeking, attack-the-fit-people conspiracy theory.

She was probably sneaking 5000 calories when nobody was looking. Unreal.

I have to say -- this is undoubtedly true.

There is hormonal evidence to suggest that as you gain wait, your hormones get all fuckity, and you feel depressed, so you gain more wait.

I know when I'm thinner, I literally feel better (mentally and physically) then when I gain 10-20 pounds. That, more than my appearance, is usually my "trigger" to go back on a diet.

I can't even imagine how shitty it must feel to be THAT overweight. I legit feel bad for people who are that obese.

I think its a combination of insulin resistance and hormonal imbalances caused by being so overweight.

I've never been anywhere close to her size, but I have had a few fat periods in my life, and it is kind of hard to just "cut back" at first.

Until you change your diet, and your body gets used to it. Then its easy AF.

But just eating a smaller portion of lasagna isn't a sustainable way (for me at least) to lose weight. Eating empty carbs all day keeps you hungry all day because your hormones are all out of whack.

Have to give up the empty carbs altogether.

I had a morbidly obese co worker at a previous job who broke the toilet seat at work more than once.

Like it sounds funny, it wasn't really. He was super embarrassed about it.

And he also only ate normal portions during the work day. He must have really eaten a lot at home (or drank a lot of beer, I guess.)

He couldn't even fit in the back seat of a car, so he always drove when we went anywhere.

It was really sad.

The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
"Once upon a time*, there was a mother with two sons. The first was named Progressive and the other was named Conservative. One fine day the mother decided to give her sons a treat, so she bought them both a small bag of candy. Now Progressive, not being real big on delayed gratification, gobbled down all of his candy immediately. But Conservative ate one piece and saved the rest of his bag to enjoy later. It wasn't long before Progressive wanted more candy, but when he looked in his bag, it was empty. So he went to his brother and said I want some candy. Conservative replied, you just ate all of yours, you can't have mine. Well, Progressive started crying and bellyaching and then he threw himself on the floor, kicking and screaming until their mother came in, and she asked, what's all the fuss about? Progressive put on the saddest puppy-dog eyes you ever saw in your life and said he was sad because he didn't have any candy and it wasn't fair. Conservative explained that the reason he didn't have any candy was because he ate all of his already. The mother then said, Conservative, you're the older brother, why don't you give him some of yours? Conservative said, why should I have to pay for his impulsive behavior, but the mother was more interested in a quiet house than justice, so she made Conservative give half of his remaining candy to Progressive. After she left the room, Progressive said to Conservative, ha ha, you're such a chump, whereupon Conservative, already steaming mad from having to give up most of his candy, popped Progressive right in the puss. Progressive immediately started weeping and wailing and carrying on enough to wake the dead, so the mother came back in and asked what was the matter now? Progressive pointed an accusing finger at Conservative and said, he popped me in the puss and I didn't do nothing. Conservative tried to explain, but his mother did not want to listen. Instead, she gave Conservative a spanking, and gave the rest of Conservative's candy to Progressive. And then when the father came home and heard what happened, he gave Conservative another spanking and sent him to bed without any supper. Later on, lying in bed with no candy, no supper, and a sore bottom, and with Progressive smirking and giggling at him from the other bed in the room, Conservative realized with a sigh that this was the way life was going to be from now on."

The source for Rosenstein saying he would wear a wire is McCabe. To be fair, McCabe is a big fat liar.

It was only after that lying piece of shit, McCabe, tried to implicate him that I 100% believed Rosenstein is just as JackStraw claims.

229 In his interview last night, Trump was openly toying with his potential opponents when asked about them, wishing some would make it (because he relished beating them) but saying they wouldn't be the nominee.


Barring major black swans of an economic or other nature (and even then), and with the likely backdrop of historic prosecutions of criminal figures from the Obama years, hard to see anyone having a chance against Trump. Sure, the country will disgrace itself by 49-50% of the voters voting for one of these dumb, corrupt, unaccomplished, race-baiting, alien, ignorant non-entities on the Dem menu. But electorally, WI MI PA FL OH NC is a tough climb. And NV and CO might be back in play.

253 Nash was not in the Byrds, (he was in the Hollies, as noted above) but Crosby was a founding member, along with McGuinn, Gene Clark, and Chris Hillman. Hillman went on to found Manassas (with Stills), the Flying Burrito Brothers, Souther-Hillman-Furay, the Desert Rose Band... and he's still playing, quite well thank you.
The 4-CD box set of CSNY from 1990 or so has an album-sized booklet of the band's history, with discography, photos, and a three-page foldout flow chart of the four named members showing whence they came, the various bands they played in both prior to and after CSNY; it also gives the other members of the bands and where they've gone since. It's somewhat dated now, but it's the best "history of folk/country rock" I've ever seen.

Last, in an old Judy Collins songbook I've had since '74 or so, she tells of driving thru Colorado with Steven Stills, singing "Someday Soon" (by Ian Tyson). Stills suggested she record the song, so she did - with Stills on bass and Buddy Emmons on pedal steel. It hit the AM charts in summer '71 (or '72) and I've loved that song since. It's the second pop song I know of with a prominent pedal steel guitar, the first being "Teach Your Children" by CSNY, featuring Jerry Garcia on pedal steel, released in 1970... Those two tunes are why I'm learning to play the pedal steel...

OT: Does it bother anyone else that every. single. news. story about Bolsonaro, the Brazilian president, calls him "far right?"

He wants to privatize the nationalized industries in his country, is against gay marriage, and wants a closer relationship with the US and our western allies, while distancing himself from the China / Russia / Venezuela / Iran his socialist predecessors have cozied up to.

...and that makes him "far right?!"

Posted by: TheJamesMadison, Read Some Movie Thoughts at April 26, 2019 09:17 AM (ANN96)


I think that 2020 was Bernie's campaign to lose - and he has done so. Bernie was the #2 finisher in 2016 primary - he stuck it out to the end, and had his own energized following. I never thought he could beat Hillary, with the way the election was structured (I won't use the word "rigged" but it was). But he was a lot more competitive against her than one would expect an old weird guy who wasn't even a member of the Democrat party before he ran should have been. And he is winning the money primary right now - I expect that to change.

Biden hasn't run for President since 2008 - he has to rebuild a national machine. Sure, he can lean on the Obama machine, but that has already been picked apart by the large field that came before him. Biden was never that popular with Dems - he dropped out after finishing 5th in Iowa - behind BILL RICHARDSON.

Yeah, Biden was VP for 8 years under Obama, which gives him name recognition (which is valuable) but he still isn't all that popular - not even with Obama! His decision to begin his campaign as some sort of reaction to "Charlottesville" won't play, and no way he can avoid the siren call of the Leftist stuff. Think Biden will take a bold stand and say that we shouldn't let prisoners vote? Or that we shouldn't forgive all those student loans? Or we shouldn't pay reparations for slavery? Biden is not bold - he is not bold enough to be "moderate."

It's just ridiculous. Every single media source, including Fox News, just labels the guy "far right."

And the wikipedia on him (in English) is hilariously slanted.

I follow South American politics a little (I don't speak Spanish or Portuguese, but I use google translate), so I feel like I probably know more about it then 99% of the reporters who write about politics in our southern neighbors countries.

But shouldn't we LIKE a president in Brazil who leads chants of "USA" at some of his rallies, quotes Winston Churchill, wants to join NATO, and trade more extensively with the US?

...Or is the Venezuelan model really that much more preferable, where people can barely survive, and the entire country has been mortgaged to China?

=============

I think the fact that he's the only one playing well with the black electorate within the party is a serious strength that isn't going to vanish easily. It's not just name recognition because of his time as VP, it's also the fact that he's more intimately tied to the first black president than anyone else (currently) running.

If he manages a win in South Carolina while at least placing well in Iowa or New Hampshire, he'll be in good position to keep going, whittle down the rest of the field, and use his name recognition to become the sole choice for cultural Democrats who don't like identity politics.

However, your point on his cowardice in the face of leftist ire is duly noted. It's probably going to be what trips him up.

Wiki:

One contemporary notes, "an intense worship of Bacchus was considered to be almost obligatory for a writer of that period. It was a showing off, a 'pose,' for the best people of the [eighteen-]sixties." Another writes, "Talented people in Russia who love the simple folk cannot but drink."[30] Mussorgsky spent day and night in a Saint Petersburg tavern of low repute, the Maly Yaroslavets, accompanied by other bohemian dropouts. He and his fellow drinkers idealized their alcoholism, perhaps seeing it as ethical and aesthetic opposition. This bravado, however, led to little more than isolation and eventual self-destruction

138 from Nolte over at Breitbart in reviewing Avengers: Endgame, coupled with Ace's comments in the sidebar recently about Brie Larson...

One thing I noticed that was interesting...

Maybe because she's so new or maybe because she's portrayed by such an asshole, my crowd felt no warmth towards Brie Larson's Captain Marvel.

Endgame assumes we love her. Captain Marvel is given as many applause moments as the other big players, as a Captain America or Thor. But this crowd just wasn't feeling it. They went crazy over everyone else, including supporting characters like Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), Wong (Benedict Wong), The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), and anyone -- and I mean anyone -- who hails from Wakanda, but Ms. Marvel left them cold.

It probably didn't help she's the movie's deus ex machina -- which is only a small complaint.

Endgame is a true epic, filled with spectacle and purpose. It has something good to say about the world, a real philosophy about the importance of humanity, family, and self-sacrifice, and there are countless moments -- big and small -- that surprise and pay off.

Best of all is the sense of closure that won't have you regretting even a moment of your ten-year emotional investment.

I have Emerson Lake Palmer's "Pictures at an Exhibition" on DVD.
They used to show it at the midnight movies back in the days, under the
title "Rock Roll Your Eyes."



It's a real classic of wonderfully pompous prog-rock. At one point
Keith Emerson plays a keyboard with his ass, which is something ol'
Modest himself might have done when he was in his cups.


Heh, that's a ribbon controller. It also had fireworks in the end of it (the ribbon controller, not Keith's bum).
Legend has it that in their early days, they'd get warmed up for band practice by doing PaaE but never intended for it to be performed. However, at one of their first gigs Keith called it out to a surprised Lake and Palmer. So they included it in their set and the rest is musical history.

A colleague of mine, Robert, was then a non-com in the Russian Border Guards stationed there. The border is guarded and mined. The troops there were a cross section of the Russian population, including Finns, Kazakhs, heritage Germans, Mongols, etc.

In the middle of winter the alarm sounds late at night because the tracked vehicle which was supposed to relieve the watch was hours late in returning. In meter deep snow glistening in the moonlight was the tracks of the little tank went straight through the minefield in the direction of Norway. As unbelievable as it may be, it seems that a whole watch together with their relief and their vehicle had gone off to the Class Enemy. This group was a mix of Finns, Germans, Kazakhs, and Russian, altogether seven men.

Twenty years later my colleague Robert ran into another heritage German, Mr. X, who was one of the seven. This is the approximate dialog:

Robert: So, how long did you take in planning that daring escape?

X: I'll tell you. About 5 minutes.

Robert: What? Only 5 minutes?

X: It all started with the Finns saying we've had it with this shit, and Russia's just a miserable place. What are we doing here in the cold? The Kazakh said something similar. The Russian said nothing at all. Then we said to the driver, hey turn right up there! That was it.

The Finns went to Sweden, the Germans to Germany, and the Russian promptly got married to a Norwegian."

She blew her wad on Sexual Personae. I recently bought a copy because it is so dense with ideas that are just popping out of every sentence that I have to take a breather after every paragraph to process what I just read. Everything after that has been article compilations or commentary on pieces of art; all very well done but more conventional fare. After Sexual Personae a large amount of her time is spent defending her persona created by that.

I think the Establishment is terrified of Bernie...and they hate him.

They probably assign no small blame to him for running at all in 2016, almost winning in 2016, and not being gracious enough after his loss in 2016, which they potentially attribute to a major cause of Hillary's loss.

I think they'll circle the wagons and get anyone else to be the nomination. If that fails, they will undercut him in the general behind the scenes to destroy his power within the party.

The coverage of Bolsonaro is simple to understand. He likes Trump - he even admires Trump. Therefore, like Netanyahu, he must be Despised and Shunned by All Right Thinking People.

Oh yeah, they took a bit of artistic license with that piece. Added words (Lake's acoustic song in the middle) and their own arrangements but stayed pretty close to the original for a classical rock power trio.
That was my intro into traditional classical music, for which I'm thankful. I'm not alone, either. Lots of my musical-type friends at the time started listening to it too.

It is, in many instances, a beautiful piece of music - stunningly beautiful in fact. But it's also a hodge-podge that doesn't at any place hold together. It's like he had a bunch of good ideas and decided to jam them together into an 1874 version of a "compilation" album.

If you check out his bio pages on various sites it's obvious he cleaned-up pretty nicely when he had to.

Pictures at an Exhibition is actually a piano work. It's most familiar to people in an orchestrated version, the most famous of which is Ravel's, though there are others by Leopold Stokowski, Lucien Calliet (commissioned by Eugene Ormandy) and Vladimir Ashkenazy.

356 Predictions for someone to google and point to and say what do YOU know anyway:

Won't make it to Iowa:

Marianne Williamson (ultimate vanity candidacy, she won't be able to qualify for the ballot)
Wayne Messam (Who? Exactly)
Tulsi Gabbard (she's burned too many bridges)


Drops after Iowa:

John Delaney (self funded vanity)
Andrew Yang (self funded vanity)
Julian Castro (old, old news)
Amy Klobuchar (last finisher for the women)
Kirsten Gillibrand (next-to-last finisher for the women)
Seth Moulton (maybe - he might not get to Iowa, candidacy doesn't have any reason for being. Against the Iraq War? So was/is Trump.)
Eric Swalwell (candidacy is to troll Trump - a costly way to do it)
Jay Inslee

Drops after NH:

John Hickenlooper (honestly I just needed to put someone here)

Drops after SC:

Beto O'Rourke (he can fund himself past a poor showing in Iowa, and the big dropout after Iowa will make him look like a mover until he gets to SC)

Drops after Super Tuesday:

Elizabeth Warren (nobody really likes her anyway - Super Tuesday will demonstrate that definitively)
Cory Booker (he will already be reeling from going nowhere with the black vote in SC)


That will leave the field with this:

Joe Biden
Pete Buttigieg
Bernie Sanders
Kamala Harris

Bernie will run to the convention regardless of where he is. But he is already done.

Now here it gets tricky - Harris I don't think can win but the Dems can't let the last candidates all be white men. UNLESS - she drops out, immediately endorses Biden, and Biden says, immediately, I will be glad to have her on my ticket when we get to the convention. Despite the fact I think he won't win, this might actually make him win. If those campaigns are too bitter with each other to do that, that only leaves one candidate:

Buttigieg

Trump should have fired him!

Look at all the bad things he said about Trump!

"The previous Administration chose not to publicize the full story about Russian computer hackers and social media trolls, and how they relate to a broader strategy to undermine America. The FBI disclosed classified evidence about the investigation to ranking legislators and their staffers. Someone selectively leaked details to the news media. The FBI Director announced at a congressional hearing that there was a counterintelligence investigation that might result in criminal charges. Then the former FBI Director alleged that the President pressured him to close the investigation, and the President denied that the conversation occurred."

Watch enough 60's tv and you can recognize that there was a regular stable of actors and actresses that played all of the bit parts on almost all of the series that decade. They show up as witnesses on Perry Mason shows, too. What's fun is to spot players that went on to become a lot more memorable later on, like Will Geer and Ellen Corby (Grandpa and Grandma Walton) And in westerns it's always hilarious when Jack Elam stumbles in, even when he's supposed to be playing a serious part.

420 Saw "Avengers: Endgame"

No spoilers.


Ended series well. Interesting how they went relatively low key for the first hour.

Great battle scenes. Minimal Capt Marvel cuz this isn't really her gig.

Good script. Great Acting. Great directing particularly actions scenes. Some neat surprises.

Watch out on the internet cuz-

A-holes with the progtard mindset who can't stand other people enjoying themselves-

were already posting spoilers yesterday.

Check it out.

This maybe the last Marvel movie you ever need to see.

Warning: To get this movie you pretty much have had to have seen the last ten years worth of Marvel movies. Otherwise, you'll be all WTF????

421 Mussorgsky was one of a group of Russian composers who called themselves "The Five". Their motto was "One must always be drunk". No, really.
He was also a pure composer. He never orchestrated any of his works, that was done by others, including Ravel.
They have a marker on his grave, but it was later discovered that his grave is under a bus stop.

Could be, though I think the field full of lefty heartthrobs will have thinned out by then.

When Trump was leading with 10+ candidates in the field at 25% pundits said well at that anti-Trump vote will coalesce onto one of the other not-Trumps. But it ended up that a lot of the anti-not-Trump votes coalesced on Trump. I think it would work that way with Harris in California.

433 Avengers: Endgame

You know what was a really great super-hero story? "Bedlam at the Baxter Building," Fantastic Four Annual #3.

For almost a year, the FF had gone on a long journey of internal squabbling, losing their powers, fighting their way back into their headquarters against Dr Doom, culminating in (finally!) the wedding of Reed and Sue.

I think it was that same year that Dr Strange was sent on a long journey through multiple psychedelic Steve Ditko dimensions and really came into his own as a character. This was the same time as all the Marvel characters were really becoming a grand mythos.

And then, everybody (except I think the Hulk was shown off in a cave somewhere), every super-hero and most of their villains, teamed up for one grand Jack Kirby illustrated battle before the wedding. They even had the gal-comics characters, Millie and Patsy and Hedy and whatever. (Don't remember if they worked in their cowboy characters.)

And of course the classic scene of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby being turned away from the wedding (done sadly and badly with only Stan in one of those forgettable FF films).

That was the peak of Marveldom. They should've done that story. Oh, yeah, they didn't own the FF for films. Reboot!

Maybe.

But:

1. I consider a suspended campaign by someone far back in the pack the same thing as a dropout. Has one ever come back? McCain's campaign doesn't count, it was general election, he was leading or very close when he suspended, and then when he un-suspended he was never close again.

2. Brokered convention won't happen.

I've been saying this forever but if you really want to understand Rosenstein you have to go back to May 2017 and look what was going on. Remember what was happening at the time, who was running what, the public mood, the talk of collusion and Russian involvement with the Trump campaign, the investigation that had been going on for over a year that nobody knew about, etc.

The really great character, and sometimes the lead, actors once upon a time could go from comedy to drama, melodrama to tragedy, with ease. See Edward G. Robinson, for example. Never won an Oscar, but was always believable, no matter what he appeared in. And many of those actors were distinctive in manner and voice, so that Rich Little and impersonators/impressionists like him made a career out of "doing" Bogart or whoever.

Now? Who's going to do impressions of Ryan Reynolds and Chris Hemsworth?

My bet isn't on Biden per se; it's that Paglia will write a Salon article endorsing him (where she's typically endorsed some so-and-so because of their "primitive appreciation of the dominant female/warrior ethic/Catholic brutalism/"my-generation-which-invented-antinomianism" yadayada).

Mind you, I'm a fan, too. Some of the stuff does start to read like a retread of "Sexual Personae."

As usual, Paglia will bitch about how fucked up the Donk candidates are, and how honorable and reasonable the GOP candidate is, despite being an evil conservative.

Then on election day she'll throw her vote away on the Green Party candidate because "ewwww, Republicans have cooties".

548 Some debt math

Debt $22 Trillion
to pay it off off in 30 years at 3.5%
$98.79 Billion/month
$1.18548 Trillion/yr
Current Spending
$4.0 Trillion
Current Tax Collections
$3.4 Trillion
So
3.4-1.1=2.3
So we could need to cut the current budget from 4.0 to 2.3 or CUT $1.7 Trillion to make the payments.

I've revised my opinion of Rosenstein. I don't think he was in on the whole attempted coupe, I think he was a weak man in a position of power, who was stuck in the middle.

IMO he could have short circuited a LOT of the crap that happened, including the long long Mueller investigation, if he had been STRONG enough, but I think he took a hands off approach to Mueller because he was afraid of public opinion, and Democrats in Congress.

He was in a no win situation. Either way he jumped he was going to get scorched from one side, or the other.

But that is the measure of a Man isn't it? What do you do when you hit those situations?

  • Will the "History Police" be consistent? Why just remove Kate Smith's statue when we can take back awards earned by Cassius Clay Mohamed Ali.

  • The paste eating Joe Biden has entered the presidential race. He also has the lead, for the time being.
  • Speaking of having the lead. Biden also has the Creepy Porn Lawyer vote.

  • With Republicans like these who needs Democrats?

  • "They" say that voter fraud is a myth. If it were why has the mayor Edinburg, TX and his wife been arrested?

    118 Think one of my favorite Trump moments was early on in his campaign when he went off on Hillary - which made me laugh because no one ever did that - and the he pivoted to huma with something like (forget exact wording), "And then there's her aide Huma - Huma! - who is married to that creep Anthony Weiner. Is that a good idea having Weiner so close to her campaign?" And then something about it being a bad idea having Weiner close to classified infor.

    First, it was hilarious to see Trump so casually talk about Hillary in a way that NO ONE in DC ever did publicly - the GOP is always at pains to pretend to respect her and then use euphemisms like "misspoke" instead of lies, etc.

    Second, because he totally nailed it with the Weiner assessment, that he was a danger to classified info.

    To me, that indicated Trump gets a good read on people and situations.

    147 It is a federal felony to threaten the life of a U.S. Representative. The FBI is extremely successful in tracking down people who issue such threats, in fact, it is one of the things that they do best. It is always a major news story when such people are arrested. The only death threat against Omar I can find any news about is the picture of graffiti in the bathroom that was put on Instagram (COUGHfalseflagCOUGH).

    In other words I call "bullshit" on Omar's claim to receiving death threats. Besides, in any case, that is just some people saying things.

Although it is also infuriating that all this, so called, evidence was known at the beginning of the investigation and was known to be BS (and/or not linked to Trump at all - and there was really no evidence besides this). And yet an investigation of a Presidential candidate and a president elect AND a sitting President was based upon all of this.

    De Blasio did note, while signing the GND, that New Yorkers should be prepared to make big sacrifices in order to save the planet, however. And if the current legislative scheme isn't enough to reduce carbon emissions in the city, he may consider expanding the program's ban.

    I took a quick look at some studies. Black women do have 3-4 times greater chance of maternal mortality but...

    That death rate includes every one who dies while pregnant, while giving birth and within up to one year after birth

    There Is no requirement the death be caused by the pregnancy or birth to be counted

    The biggest categories of death seem to be unrelated or not known causes

    Only a few (fewer than 5) out of 100,000 deaths Happen during or right after birth.

    These are generally tied to poor maternal health and certain weight related and similar conditions like obesity and diabetes.

    There is not a separate category for Gosnell patients and the like.

    Since the study probably includes the hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrant births by woman who may have just snuck in weeks or days before and had no prenatal care, I dont think this can be used to show anything significant about us medical care.

There's fundraising in the name of the youngest victim, Martin Richard, there's stories about people injured in the attack taking up running and/or returning to the race after a long recovery, and so on.

    Maybe the MSM has long forgotten the attack, but it is very much still discussed in MA. Add to it that the Sri Lanka bombings happened shortly after Bernie's remarking, again reminding people that Bernie sides with terrorists.

    392 Just saw the story about 1300 migrants escaping from detention in Mexico. Knowing Mexico, they probably hired 4 guards to watch all 1300, and they all scheduled their lunch hour together. And when someone told them "hey all the prisoners are leaving!" they said, "hombre, pardon! Cant you see we still got 30 minutes to go on our break??? Come back then!!!"

    Posted by: TheJamesMadison, Read Some Movie Thoughts at April 26, 2019 09:17 AM (ANN96)


    I think that 2020 was Bernie's campaign to lose - and he has done so. Bernie was the #2 finisher in 2016 primary - he stuck it out to the end, and had his own energized following. I never thought he could beat Hillary, with the way the election was structured (I won't use the word "rigged" but it was). But he was a lot more competitive against her than one would expect an old weird guy who wasn't even a member of the Democrat party before he ran should have been. And he is winning the money primary right now - I expect that to change.

    Biden hasn't run for President since 2008 - he has to rebuild a national machine. Sure, he can lean on the Obama machine, but that has already been picked apart by the large field that came before him. Biden was never that popular with Dems - he dropped out after finishing 5th in Iowa - behind BILL RICHARDSON.

    Yeah, Biden was VP for 8 years under Obama, which gives him name recognition (which is valuable) but he still isn't all that popular - not even with Obama! His decision to begin his campaign as some sort of reaction to "Charlottesville" won't play, and no way he can avoid the siren call of the Leftist stuff. Think Biden will take a bold stand and say that we shouldn't let prisoners vote? Or that we shouldn't forgive all those student loans? Or we shouldn't pay reparations for slavery? Biden is not bold - he is not bold enough to be "moderate."

    Mine is similar. It was when the media was in a frenzy to bring Trump down about the birther stuff and Trump announced a press conference. They were in a frenzy to ask him questions. All the cable channels were covering it. Goes to the mic, makes some general announcements about the campaign, then makes a grand announcement that's he's opening a new hotel. Then walks off the stage.

    Cut to the confused talking heads and the slow realization he just used them as a free commercial for his new hotel.

    The ONT Is Back!

    Hi everyone! I'm back from Florida. I'd like to thank the COBS who stepped up and provided ONTs last week while I was gone. Hmm, it's been a while, I'm trying to remember what it is that you perverts like in an ONT...

    tiddies.jpg

    Parenting

    You will be made illegal. Parenting Magazine Warns ‘Blond, Cheerful’ Families Dangerous, Likely Right Wing. Yes, this is Germany, but read through and see what traits they highlight as possibly being signs of people who are problematic. For example:

    Heike Radvan of the controversial Amadeu Antonio Foundation warns that “children of right-wing parents are not necessarily different from other children”, but says they are often “very obedient” and might not talk much.

    Despite asserting that such children are not outspoken, the “experts” wheeled out by the magazine warn that a sinister aspect of right-wing parenting is that they instil self-confidence in their progeny.

    So if you raise obedient, self-confident children, the state will definitely need to keep an eye on you. Of course, if your kids are cross-dressing criminals, then everything must be fine.


    Or this guy: Man Is Suing Parents for $86,000 After They Binned His Porn Collection. Exactly the kind of subject that the overlords want in this brave new world.

    A Smart Military Blog

    Here's some scaremongering from Reuters:


    I notice that nowhere in that video do they mention US anti-missile defenses. I'm not saying that they are the end-all be-all, but they exist and should be considered, no? On the other hand:

    WHY THE U.S. MILITARY IS WOEFULLY UNPREPARED FOR A MAJOR CONVENTIONAL CONFLICT

    Reminder: Practice your war face (sound on).



    Biden's Running!

    If God loves us, we'll get Biden/Trump debates. Those would be epic. Anyhow, on this momentous occasion, lets look back at one of Joe's greatest hits:


    Then there's his policy ideas, which are, I suppose, a big fucking deal. Joe Biden: We Should ‘Build Upon’ Obamacare. I wonder what the family in the next story would advise on that front, Joe?

    Truly Sad

    No, I take that back. It isn't sad. It's a goddamn travesty. But hey, National Health will be great when it gets here, won't it?

    Man with Down's Syndrome's 'cruel and horrific' death after 19 days without food

    That Which Doesn't Kill You, Makes You Stronger


    Even abortion? Apparently.

    I love how he got a reference to how his mother tried to abort him into the story. I hope airing that was like chewing wormwood for the reporter.

    97 I've seen a lot of what seem to be Chinese Military sites that play up how gung ho and rah rah the Chinese Military is right now and that the US should just shut up and stay home with their measly 11 aircraft carriers and 300 warships and stuff.

    You can tell that it's at the least written by someone who's never been in the military or at least the US military and doesn't understand that although we are very open about our military power we don't highlight everything nor speak a lot of the logistics ability of the USNavy.

    Out of all the Navies of the world that fielded Carriers, the US is the only nation to also have a well trained and able logistics supply system that delivers tons of material WHILE AT SEA AND UNDERWAY.

    Something that no other nation has accomplished on a regular basis. Not even Russia or England or Japan. And we've been doing it for over 60 years. Day in, Day out.

    An Underway Replenishment is not for the faint of heart. Thousand ton warships steaming through restive waters both in the deep ocean and within restrictive waters. Transferring tons of fuel, food, replacement parts, ammunition and personnel all while in motion only a few yards apart. (varies depending on sea conditions but usually about a 100 yards)
    They also use helicopters for transfer of specialized gear and personnel. (since the 60's)

    No. Other. Nation. Has. Mastered. This.

    Then there's the actual war fighting capability of a Carrier Strike Force and the area it can cover and interdict any threat posed.

    China right now as 1 converted Russian cruiser that is a piece of crap and another built from the keel on the same design that still has yet to complete their sea trials and has had lots of problems.

    And they are ONLY for those jets that can perform VTO which limits their top speed and capacity.

    The majority of their ships (about 60 I believe) are the size of the ships we call Frigates with a few just a bit larger. None of which can coordinate as well as the USN and in fact in a recent Ship Display only sent out 20 of their ships to sail with other participating Navies of the area.

    China could turn out to be a threat at sea but not for a while.

    That puts it before Trump got elected. From what I am beginning to hear over there, people are not thinking the same now as three years ago.

    I didn't notice that, but yes. Whoever made the pic did their homework, as Japanese books are typically right-to-left.

    Well, ok, they did half of their homework. It should probably be "manga titties", in book form.

    Now, he's afraid Cato is going to attack him (as he's ordered). But a real assassin is after him, whom he mistakes for Cato.

    My navy son had a opportunity to go aboard (invited!) a new Chinese destroyer - Type 052D shortly before he got out. Of course he couldn't see the top secret spaces but, he was astounded at the lack of proper fitting of equipment and hardware. Watertight hatches weren't. No firefighting equipment anywhere and no nuclear, chemical or biological defenses. He said the fit and finish the hull explained why the bilge pumps seemed to be throwing out an inordinate of leakage. Couldn't wait to get off her.

    197 If someone is going to write an article on American performance in Iraq, fine. If I use the Find function for Iran, Obama, and Democrat but come up empty, I will discount literally everything else they say.

    Of course America would have real trouble in a war with China: we host millions of Chinese. How many Americans do they host? And that's before the knowledge that Democrats will reflexively align with America's enemies, because the Dems are America's enemies. Focusing on military hardware and admittedly poor leadership misses the point entirely.

    Posted by: JT at April 25, 2019 10:34 PM (4OUPU)


    I was 7 when I first discovered that big lie. I was having my tonsils removed, and I remember the book (geared for kids) which they gave me to prepare me for the operation. The big thing was after the surgery, you'll get all the ice cream you want. What kid wouldn't be happy? After the surgery, when I tried to eat 'all the ice cream you want', it was way too painful to eat. Ended up putting the ice cream in the sink in my hospital room, running warm water so it melted, then showing the nurse I finished it. I got a good boy for that.

    Learned all about lying liars and the lies they tell at the ripe old age of 7, with that lesson learned staying with me right through to the age I am now, curmudgeonly curmudgeon.

    Had both eyes rebuilt 2 years ago, lenses plus some laser work. I'm one of the lucky ones that doesn't need vision assist post surgery.

    Not a traumatic event at all, after the initial opening of the operated eye--there was sharp, jangled images at first, until the next day when the eye somewhat recovered from the insult.

    Something I noticed after both were done was the extreme clarity, and the amount of visual detail at distance took some getting used to--sensory overload the Doc called it. You get used to it , though.

    She married a congressman, that was good. And he was very close to being the mayor of NYC, that was great. And then he resigns from Congress in disgrace, followed by a subsequent sex crime which lands her once-promising husband in jail.

    But wait! Huma still has an Ace up her sleeve -- she's the right-hand of the next president of the United States, and this is a sure-thing. Huma was gonna be the Chief of Staff to the leader of the free world, no doubt about it.

    301 My vision is roughly the same as it's been for the last 25 years or so, between -2.25 and -2.75 in each eye. Sometimes it even gets a little better in one or the other since the last exam.

Especially driving at night or just after sundown, the transition between a bright light and a dark region is much more difficult than I remember it being.

    "LAPD Capt. Donald Graham, commander of the North Hollywood Division,
    said it was common for homeowners to lose $ 30,000 to $ 40,000 in a heist.
    Officers are aware of at least 40 burglaries in the division and dozens
    more in other areas."

    347 I got really upset reading the story of the Joe Ulleri getting starved to death by cruel, heartless bastards.

    Then you brought me back with Nik Hoot. Thanks for that.

    Bringing the two stories together, I recently caught up with an ex-GF online. She used to be a left-leaning person.

    She married a Canadian dude and moved there with him. She shared the story of how when she was pregnant with her last son, the Canadian health system did an amnio on her and told her that her son was going to be Down's. They tried to get her to abort. Every visit. For 6 months. Time after time. Abort. You need to abort.

    She had her son, perfectly healthy. She told her husband she was moving back to Tennessee with the kids, he was free to come if he liked, but she wasn't staying in Canada anymore.

    Her son is cute as a button, I saw a picture of both of them in Trump hats. Now she's more right-wing than I am. Happy ending all around.

    351 While not wholly discounting the article about how unprepared the US military is for a conventional war, I will take its findings with a grain of salt. Back in the late 70's/early 80's when I was just a wee lad, I recall a special report on one of the Big 3 networks about how awful our F-14s, F-15s, F-111s, M1 Abrams and other weapons were compared to the light and nimble Soviet fighters and mighty swarms of Russian tanks.
    A repeat of this theme occurred in my college years when these same networks plus CNN decried our shortage of zip-up rubber body bags for the massive casualties we would take from the Iraqi army, the well honed Soviet style force with a decade of modern warfare under their belts against Iran. Our inferior M1 Abrams tanks and Apache helicopters could not handle desert warfare.

    I have a hunch that DOD puts out these stories to a more than willing press to either generate more budget increases, or keep our enemies guessing (or more likely, both).

Anyone with a lick of common sense would know that portended bad things on the horizon. Blow Job Billy officiating your marriage is a bad luck start to any marriage, especially that 'until death do us part' part. I think Bill's inner sadist came out when he took that job.

    I thought I was out of the woods, but it hit me hard Tuesday night. It lasted about 12 hours, the worst of it. And I of course infected Miley.

    There is a legal doctrine of "absolute immunity", which states that a judge can't be prosecuted for anything relating to the judge's official duties.

    As Glenn Reynolds notes, "absolute immunity" isn't in statute - it is a legal doctrine invented by judges, for the benefit of judges.

    If we could blow up "absolute immunity" as part of prosecuting this case, that would be gravy.

    413 I think the threat of a possible spanking, switching for the most serious transgressions can be helpful. I am in no way advocating for regular use of this punishment however. Growing up, I can think of 4 occasions when I got into this situation, and it was because I had really fucked up. Bigly.

    My daughter got a light spanking twice in her life. This is not popular at all these days, but it does work as a deterrent. Again, this should not be a regular thing.

    The notion of qualified immunity for official acts applies only to discretionary powers of the official. Willful violations of law don't apply.

    There is a legal grey area there. Interestingly, Clarence Thomas has expressed interest in curtailing this immunity based on some egregious cases.

    He tried it it once with me, and I got over the whole Dad thing and we had it out. After that, it was not wait until Dad gets home, as he was always home those days. He let up because he was afraid of when I got home if he tried that shit anymore.

    517 Blues win!

    I don't like the Dallas Stars, and it's not their fault. There's a guy at the home office of my company that is a huge Stars fan. I sent him an email before the first Stars/Flames game this year, betting a Texas t-bone against a couple of Baltimore crab cakes. He said "sure", and the Stars won. So I sent him 2 of the best crab cakes in town (from Pappas. Cost me $80. I recommend them if you want crab cakes, they'll ship across the USA). I sent him an email "Haha, you got us this time, your crab cakes are on the way" and talked just a little about the game. No response. A week later I sent another email "Hey, did you get the crab cakes?". No response. Finally, about a month later I had to call him about work related stuff, and I asked the same question. "Oh, yeah, didn't I tell you?". Not even thanks.

    That's not how you do things. In my world you make friendly bets on sports so you can rib a little back and forth about your team and a game you both enjoy. At the very least you acknowledge the bet.

    So, not the Stars fault, but it left a sour taste in my mouth and I'm rooting for the Blues.

    518 Not trying to one-up anyone on child abuse stories but let me tell you about something my Mom did which would get her arrested today, although I fully understand why she did what she did.

    As a pre-schooler, I had a fascination with fire. We had those wooden Diamond 'strike anywhere' matches for lighting the oven. I used to build little campfires on the concrete garage floor. When my Mom caught me doing that, she was seriously afraid I'd burn the house down and/or kill myself. So this onetime, she'd had enough of warning me as I didn't listen. She took me to the gas stove, turned the burner on and stuck my hand in the flame for just a brief second. I stopped playing with matches after that.

    In my case, as an obstreperous, misbehaving, obstinate child, desperate times call for desperate measures. While I always remember what she did (who wouldn't?), I never held it against her or felt like I was abused. She didn't do what she did out of anger, but serious concern for my life as well as the house.

    Today, though, I'd be in foster care or with relatives and Mom in jail.

    535 528 I'm rooting for the Blues to win the SC. I only have one tenuous connection to the Blues. They started in the NHL as an expansion team with Pittsburgh in 1967. Of those 6 expansion teams, only the now long departed Oakland Seals and St. Louis have not won a Stanley Cup. Minnesota moved to Dallas and "won" a Cup there.

    The indictment is a clever move by the Trump Administration - the fact pattern in this case is just awful for the judge (ordering the ICE agent out of the courtroom, turning off the audio recording of the court records, etc.).

    It's not about black hats and white hats. Life is more complex than that and everyone knows it. Electing Trump didn't mean the Deep State surrendered, it meant they fought back harder.

    591 Interesting that Rosie was in Armenia in '94. We might have almost crossed paths. I assume his visit was part of the rule of law program. Sounds like nobody told him to fill the bathtub and sink with water during the 2 hours there was power and water - SOP.


    And he chose the formal and mouth-filling Armenian expressions for his speech - he must know that in Armenia "merci" is much preferred for "thank you".


    But his remarks about of Russia's vandalism efforts and their importance, and how Americans are safer and better informed today, are silly. The Russian stuff was of no importance, had no impact, and of course was and is dwarfed dramatically by the home-grown war against election integrity (has he heard of Wayne County, MI? Or the ludicrous Dem and judicial efforts to prevent integrity of voter rolls?).


    And as I say several times a day, I want to see a detailed review of the legitimacy of the SC appointment under current DOJ regs and related statute. And so do some of Rosie's colleagues.

    * though I can't find solid confirmation from GPW vets or written sources, it certainly seems the case, as many claim, that the only way to quickly load a Mosin-Nagant with the stripper clips is to hollow out the little half-moon part of the interrupter, allowing easier insertion ..... so I did actually do that to one Mosin - and it works

    621 The animated GIF at the end is from an anime called Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid.

    In the scene, one of Miss Kobayashi's dragon friends (note the horns, it's because she's a dragon in human form) wore a too-revealing swimsuit to the beach, and some kind of beach monitor told her she couldn't wear that suit.

    Presumably that's a thing in Japan, beach monitors who will scold you if you are showing too much skin? Maybe it's just the lifeguards?

    Aha, YouTube has a clip. The show isn't Shakespeare but it's pretty amusing. There was a running gag I really enjoyed where Tohru kept trying to cook part of her tail and serve it to Miss Kobayashi as a meal. (She regenerates her tail easily.)

    You're welcome. You could have had it a lot earlier if you had made a more specific request, like quoting the "bad" link. And tinyurl.com is not a government site; all it does is provide an url-shortening service. And I think some corporate networks with "nanny monitor" software block tinyurl, because it might let no-nos through the nannyware curtain.
