The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Nobody's life is a bed of roses. We all have crosses to bear, and we all just do our best. I would never claim to have the worst situation. There are many widows, and many people dying of AIDS, many people killed in Lebanon, people starving all over the planet. So we have to count our lucky stars. Yoko Ono


Quote II

Sometimes I am happy and sometimes not. I am, after all, a human being, you know. And I am glad that we are sometimes happy and sometimes not. You get your wisdom working by having different emotions. Yoko Ono


Quote III

I just like to explore all sorts of different forms - no, 'explore' is not even the word - enjoy. You don't want to limit yourself to a particular form. Yoko Ono


80 years young and still hitting it out of the park.................

The previous video was Yoko at age 80. What is Yoko up to at age 86? If you are in Syracuse this summer you can find out.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Yoko Ono, the well-known and little-understood artist, is bringing her work back to Syracuse this summer for a show at the Everson Museum of Art.

Will her return as an 86-year-old trigger the same breathless reactions that she encountered in 1971, when the Everson hosted her first solo museum show?

Perhaps not. Much of the hubbub around that event centered on Ono’s husband, the late John Lennon, who accompanied her and contributed to the exhibition. Still, Ono often surprises.

There is more to Yoko than just talented singing. Five interesting facts about Yoko.

Yoko Ono, a multimedia artist, composer and musician, has always been associated to John Lennon or The Beatles in her whole life. The artist who was raised in between the United States and Japan started creating paintings, performances, music and videos in the 60s, before she actually met John Lennon.

Here are some facts about the infamous Beatles breaker who continues to strive her powerful and important position in the contemporary art world today.

Wife, mother, artist: Yoko through the years.

Rock-and-roll photographer Bob Gruen first met Yoko Ono in 1971, and has been photographing her continuously ever since. Two years ago, when she was turning 80, Gruen put together a book of his portraits of Ono from the past 40 years — accompanied by quotes from interviews with journalist Jody Denberg — documenting her life as an artist, activist, wife, and mother. “We made a book that you just publish online, and we made a one-off that we gave her as a gift,” Gruen explained to the Cut. “She liked it so much that she asked us to publish it.”

You can't follow me on Twitter. But, you can follow Yoko!

Yes, I'm a giver.

When you hire a chauffeur, wouldn't you check and double check the candidate's background. Unless you're a Genius Award Winner.

The melodrama between Yoko Ono and her chauffeur, playing out in New York City courtrooms and across newspaper headlines 11 years ago, appeared to end with that two-month span of accusations, denials and threats. The chauffeur, Koral Karsan, was sent back to his native Turkey after 60 days in jail, and Ms. Ono returned to her public creative pursuits and the side of her life she has long kept private, within the walls of the apartment in the Dakota where she once lived with her husband, John Lennon.

But shortly after meeting with Ms. Ono last month in Manhattan, the police in Berlin this week announced what amounts to an audacious coda to that 2006 chain of events. The police said they have mounting evidence that Mr. Karsan, even as he was accusing Ms. Ono of sexual harassment and demanding $2 million to stay quiet, was stealing Lennon’s personal effects from the cupboards of her apartment in the Dakota.

Al Stewart met Yoko when he first got to London. He was persuaded to give Yoko a large part of his paltry cash to support a Yoko art project.

The actual methods of persuasion used are unknown to me.

77 I was just reading the daily update on the Oberlin/Gibson's trial over at Legal Insurrection - GREAT reporting by them on a case that is completely off the MSM's radar.

The plaintiff's lawyers (for Gibson's Bakery) are doing a truly masterful job at making their defamation case against the SJW administrators, it is a joy to behold. They are doing everything right - meanwhile Oberlin is telling the jury that they are all a bunch of dumb hicks who are too stupid and racist to understand anything. Now, you never know how a jury will rule, but I am looking forward to this one!

fyi, because of limitations in Ohio tort law (more details at LI), the Maximum damages possible that Gibson's could win would be near $5 million, with potentially double that tacked on as punitive damages.

Oberlin has told the jury that no business in their stupid little town is worth more than $35,000.

It seems that in the 1796 election, the French ambassador was openly publishing articles in American newspapers arguing for Thomas Jefferson, who supported the French Revolution, over John Adams, who didn't. It almost worked too, as Adams narrowly defeated Jefferson by 71-68 in the Electoral College.

But foreign governments never meddled in American elections before 2016. Right.

They were doing quite well and just hitting their stride writing-wise. Remember they'd only been writing songs "together" for what, 6 or 7 years or so. They might've also stayed together and also done solo projects too. Who knows how many albums like Revolver or Rubber Soul or Sgt. Pepper's they still had left in them?


But we'll never get to find that out, now will we? Thanks a lot, YO. Thanks a fuck of a lot. Bitch...

198 Well that's a birthday present that puts spending the day in labs and chemo in perspective.

Speaking of, I met my oncologist and she say is likely (presumably due to the results of those in the study I'm in who started months before me and my numbers from labs) that after finishing the next 12 weeks of chemo, having 2 or 3 weeks to heal and then having a bone marrow transplant (suspiciously with a vague "couple of weeks" time line that I should experience a "deep remission",which is currently as good as it gets with this type of cancer.

So that was a great present.

but oddly over the last couple ten years or so it's abated quite a bit and she'll actually have a nice thing or two to say about her when she comes up as a topic of conversation.

She really, really, really hates Linda MacCartney though.

Not sure why, except that she's basically Yoko except less talented (or at least less exuberant with her lack of talent), white, and doesn't get all the blame for breaking up the band.

347 John The Savage #174:
@94
To be fair, John Lennon, per Paul, broke up the Beatles.
John just used Yoko as the middle man and fall gal.


John knew they were getting worn out and wanted to split up, but Paul (advised by his conniving father-in-law) talked John out of it, so then Paul was first out of the chute with a solo album.

Their best days were behind them, and they could have split, solo'd, and reun'ed amicably, but it was Paul who was the rot in the heart. (The real Paul who died in a car crash would not have done that.)

373 Off-sched movie reviews:

Duel in the Sun (1946) King Vidor dips Jennifer Jones in red paint, teaches her how to squirm and dart her eyes, and films her in 1.33:1 Technicolor, thereby driving several lean horny cowboys to fuss and fight over her, in a Western landscape STUDded with embarrassingly obvious sexual symbolism. Jones as Pearl looks like the prototype for all the body-painted alien women that 1960s Captain Kirk picked up in port. Some movie historians believe that Duel is the only film known to include a character named "Lewt." Quite a bit of screen time for busty Butterfly McQueen, for when you get tired of fapping to JJ. A lesson for all you "nice guys" out there: watch what happens to super-nice-guy Charles Bickford. What a sap!

The Square (2018?) Mild Scandi skewering of modern elite dogma and taste. Same guy that directed Force Majeure, who again shows how men are emasculated, even cowed, in our diseased modern culture. Elizabeth Moss plays a small part as a dumb, crazy slut; a real stretch for her, right?

-Nurse ratched fortunately the chemo I'm on is on the less sever side as the biggest effect is stomach discomfort (which can be fairly bad relatively), waves of exhaustion, some brain fog and shakeiness in Limbs that grows the further from chemo I get, though admittedly seeing the nurse have to put on a gown and gloves before handling one of the best does give pause. I also get a steroid, but thankfully not a level that triggers mania as I experienced that when initially hospitalized and can live without experiencing that again-it was worse than Yoko by magnitudes.

Posted by: Blonde Morticia's phone at May 21, 2019 11:14 PM (afJ7E)

Well, talk about car parts; I am working on my buddy's Triumph Spitfire. Brought it in to do brakes, so have it up on the hoist. Noticed a suspicious streak of powdered rust on the left rear suspension trunnion. (Yeah, it's a Brit word, how did you guess?)

Ordered parts to fix same. Took it apart today. There is a bolt, with a metal sleeve, that passes through a pair of nylon bushings with flanges. There are thrust washers to ride against the flanges, to prevent end float, and "O" rings to seal the whole thing against road dust.

You know what's not there? Any damned way to get grease into the friggin' bushings. There's a grease nipple not a half-inch away from the bore, but it supplies the wheel bearing located directly above it, not the bushing bore.

I think I will drill and tap a hole, and install another grease nipple to lube the bushing, too.

423 Hey everybody. I posted this earlier today but hope it's cool to share again.

If I could share something unrelated... I can't believe I'm already at the age where I'm finding old freinds/acquaintances have passed. Good grief.

Back in 1993-94, I worked for a small startup computer school called Focus Automation, which later became Focus Institute. At that job I had a fantastic-- and not bad-looking boss, Anna Brannon.

Ever since that job ended (too soon like all my other good jobs), I've wanted to catch up to her. I spent years looking for her online, but she seemed to disappear after 1996; just nothing about her at all since then.

I just now finally found her... but it wasn't good. Turns out she passed away last year. She was only a year older than me. As I said, I haven't seen/spoken to her in years, but it still feels sad.

The thing that made it interesting was the relationship between Paul (upbeat, positive, bright tempos, major keys) and John (downer, minor keys, slower tempos).
Between the two of them they made a nice team.
George and Ringo, never really understood how they fit in to this scheme other than don't get in the way.

480 Blonde, thanks. Yes she did.
I admit I didn't quite get why she was still working. By all accounts she made quite a bit of money between modeling and her glamour shots photography stores. Nevertheless, she was one of my best bosses, and didn't even seem to mind so much that I found her attractive. Others did too; I once had a co-worker at Focus ask me, "how can you STAND it?!" ;-)

(Thankfully though, she was very approachable, which I was able to use to my advantage emotionally; I tend to become most obsessive about the women who aren't so accessible.)

565 Have yet to read a Patton bio. Have a few on my list. Anybody read the major ones, and have a reco?


His "War As I Knew It" was published very posthumously, in 1976. It's his war memoirs, basically his diary edited as much as he could before he was killed.

It's clear from the movie Patton (1970) that the producers had access to the manuscript. The iconic scenes like a German fighter strafing them when the Brits had just declared that there was no threat from the sky is in there.

In some ways it's more awesome than the movie. In the movie when the Bulge gets surrounded (plus or minus Christmas) everyone says I can relieve them by mid-February or I can get there in late January and Patton says my men are working on a plan to turn around and get there in three days.

In real life, if his book is to be believed, he started planning it before it happened. He wrote "if Rundstedt (I think) counterattacks, as I expect him to, we will have to be ready for...".

Anyway, always good to read from the horse's mouth.

571 Redc1c4 - prayers up. I hope it's neither, the second I only know of by rep and the first I hadn't even heard of on March 6th...till I got a crash course of kind of the nearly worst kind (a loved one I think would have been worse). If it is the first there is a trial going on now your dad might be eligible for if it isn't full run out of the University of Alabama that seems to be successful in its short and limited run at producing deep remission, at least that is what my oncologist says and told me today she expects is in my near term future (20 weeks or so), though my age (29 but born when Ford was president) makes bone marrow transplant a more likely option for success after 6 weeks of chemo than it maybe for older persons (not to bring this down).

It's a shitty one (as opposed to the good cancers, right?) but what I was told is it oncologists seem to have hope that breakthroughs in treatment may not be far off. The current treatment is a steroid and there are chemo drugs whosr effects aren't such that they'll ever be street drugs, but my experience and also what I was told in advance is they aren't miserable forms of chemo.

So again, I hope Drs are wrong and it's actually something more beignin but MM, while not good, isn't at least immediately a quick decline from what I've heard and experienced...and this is from someone who ignored it for so many years they are in a neck brace due to a misshapen and severely dislocated c4 vertebra, has concrete in his c7 as it was close to collapse and doesn't have a c1 as it was gobbled on by the cancer.

Not trying to play one ups manship, just trying to say this one isn't usually a quick disease, and most of the limited amount I've googled has been contradicted by my oncologist (and the one I saw while hospitalized as she was on vacation when I first got diagnosed) as being out of date by a couple years. I hope this helps a little, but understand if it doesn't as it is easier for me again cause it's me and not a loved one.

Got the nom because nobody wanted it [Bush looked unbeatable right at decision time], bystander for a mini-boom he had zero to do with, horrendous manager, worse when it came to picking cabinet, almost every one of his "signature" initiatives was a substantive and political disaster, or tiny and the object of justified mockery, nearly as disastrous as Obama WRT foreign policy and national security. Leaving out the bad liar part, and the felonious buffoon who got impeached part.

She's also good friends with Feminist Chick, who I used to see, so I'm not sure how that dynamic will play out. Feminist Chick claims to be ok with be going on a date with her friend, but you know how Feminist Chicks are.

I used to work with a Somali guy who used n-bombs to describe our american black co-workers. I usually just gave him a "don't say that, dude" look. Eventually I took him aside and told him why that word was less than okay to use as an insult.

He didn't care, and continued to use it. Which I strangely respected I guess.

604 "I'm already at the age where I'm finding old freinds/acquaintances have passed." I'm feeling guilty for being in fairly good health, when most of my friends are being slowed down by emergent health problems. Activities and pleasures we take for granted when young, eventually become impossible. When old friends ask what I've been doing, can I blurt out "Oh, bicycling!" when they're no longer agile? Their depression over health downturns is agonizing.

617 Patton died too soon for us to know whether he'd have been tossed aside, but he probably would have. There's a kind of man you need in war and a kind you need in peace. The Brits threw away Churchill as soon as they could.

Patton was the kind of guy, and I can think of a couple, who seems to have existed for a purpose and then been gone when it was over. He spent his whole life, or all of his lives if you go for his reincarnation stuff, preparing to be a warrior.

Then it was almost denied him. Then he got to do it. Then he died. It is Shakespearean.

Thing is, they aren't useless. Or at least needn't be. They produce fine geological maps of areas, that probably would not get mapped by industry, because no expectation of resources. And when those maps come out, they are scrutinized by corporate geologists, and surprise, surprise! Sometimes unidentified resources are discovered. Or clues to look for them.

I've been messing around and giving a little TLC to my tractors. Changing the oil and filters and other servicing.

My 8700 is a '77 model and the damn thing is thus 42 years old. I can't believe it. It's got 7484 hours on it. And it's not using any oil and still purrs like a kitten. That hour figure, figuring about 50 miles per hour is about 375K miles equivalent.

The engine is the venerable 401 cd I-6 Ford. It's a "square" engine, bore = stroke, 4.4" x 4.4". The cast iron oil pan, which holds 16 quarts weighs more that some automotive engines total.

One of the legends was Ford fired the engineers who designed that and similar engines because they were lasting too long. 10K hours or better before overhaul needed. :-) I can almost believe that.

My little International B414D keeps soldiering along. I doubt the engine has ever been torn down, although the hour meter is long gone.

I got it a couple of years after I moved to the acreage I'm on. Friend of mine told about this old tractor in the back yard of a business down the alley from where he worked, and said it had been cleared of junk, recently. I went there, and asked, "is this old tractor for sale?" They said, "Yes, we just put an ad in the Bargain Finder, and it comes out today. It was tied up up in an estate for a long time, but we finally got it sorted out." Me: "If you can get it running for me, I have $3500 in my pocket." Them: "Come back tomorrow morning." So I did, and it was running. Gave them the money. They said the phone was ringing off the hook all night and morning.

Little tractor has a loader on it, and a 3-point hitch, and power steering. It is a jewel. I gave it a set of new glow plugs, and replaced the starter, when that finally died.

One is not concerned with the distance a tractor travels. Mileage is the standard measure of life on automotive, cars and trucks.

Consider a stationary engine. It has literally zero miles on it for it's life. Hours of operation is the measure of course.

Now, we want a rough way to compare "how old", "how worn" that engine is to a car/truck.

50 miles per hour is that rough equivalent.

Now, where does that 50 mph rough estimate come from? Well, the engine is running somewhere around 1800 RPM more or less, average roughly. Now, at what speed would be truck or car be going running at that RPM?

About 50 MPH.

Some use 60 MPH conversion. But I prefer 50. A tractor out running is the equivalent of a car or truck out on the highway, running long, not short stop and go driving, which is harder on engines.

And actually the "hours" is not an accurate time of operation, but proportional to the number of revolutions the engine has turned. The calibration varies with rated engine speed, but it is 1:1 on this one at about 1800 RPM. So 1 hour = 1800*60 = 108,000 revolutions of the crankshaft.

Agony and the Ecstasy. 1965.

Michelangelo (Charlton Heston) is painting the Sistine Ceiling, but he is taking a while.

Pope Julius (Rex Harrison) brings in some cardinals to judge his work. Some are saying the figures are scandalous because of the nudity. One is saying the nudity is fine, but they should be done in the style of the Greeks. 'Why should I emulate the Greeks?! They were heathens from their time, I'm a Christian in mine!' Then they go off into the nudity whole thing again.

'I will paint man as God made him- in the glory of his nakedness. Without shame! Shame did not come from God, it was left to Priests to create shame!'

Then, he looks down at the Pope 'WHY DO YOU BRING FOOLS TO JUDGE MY WORK?!' (Give it a good Heston bellow in your head.)

Fifty miles an hour in a car is pretty much fixed RPM, too. Hence the conversion. Not exact; but a rule of thumb.

There is one recording of him speaking normally which came to light in recent years. He was on a train car and didn't know he was being recorded.

He sounded like a regular guy with a pronounced Austrian accent.

759
I found the U of Nebraska test data on the 8700. They are the authority on tractor performance tests:

https://preview.tinyurl.com/y5m53dvq

Note they're trying more real world figures, PTO and drawbar pull, and not dynamometer figures of torgue and HP. They get real output power and drawbar pull figures.

You'll note that things pull (torque) curve is fairly flat from 2000 to 1200 RPM. It will keep pulling down to 600 RPM. The lugging performance is great.

Note this is a naturally aspirated version of the 401. The turbo versions will have more power and torque, but the torque curve gets steeper. It will not lug steadily down to nothing.

763 ...Some use 60 MPH conversion. But I prefer 50. A tractor out running is the equivalent of a car or truck out on the highway, running long, not short stop and go driving, which is harder on engines.

Posted by: publius, Rascally Rapscallion of a Poperin Pear at May 22, 2019 01:04 AM (NMAzL)



The wear on a tractor engine is much like the wear on a boat engine, only worse.

It's what's called "Shock Load Wear", and is created by the sudden and unpredictable back-loading through the drive train of transitioning from soft to hard soil, rock impacts, load transitions (that boulder you just dumped from the bucket "lightened" the load, but springed the HELL out of your drive train!), and etc.

Much like a sixty foot yacht encountering a twelve foot wave....it's a sudden and severe shock to the prop, the propeller shaft and the clutch and engine in the bargain.

"Tractor Hours" are just a whole lot damn harder than "Odometer Miles" on a passenger vehicle.

Hell, they're harder than Odometer Miles on a Class 8 over the road semi, if you get right down to it.
ngine and transmission bearings manage force in two directions.

* rotational, which is what you think of when you think of "bearings". And high torque shock feedback can whiplash a driveline to induce some incredible forces in this aspect.

* thrust, which is what most people fail to realize that drivetrain bearings have to manage. This is the land of "tapered bearings", and THE major player for "shock loads" as described above.

The bearings in a tractor or boat, are usually TWICE THE SIZE of what you find in a car or even 3/4 ton truck, precisely for these reasons.

782

The shock load to the drivetrain is why wheel slip on a tractor is so important. The optimum varies with a lot of factors, but is usually in the 5 -15% range.

Wheel slip helps absorb some of the shock load. Too much, and you're wasting fuel and wearing tires.

The rear axles on this 8700 and all but the smallest are double reduction. Total reduction is around 16:1. But that is split, 4:1 on the differential, and the final 4:1 in some outboard planetary units. There are wet brakes in between.

Good draft control with mounted implements all helps with shock loads.

794 So the head of the GCHQ resigned in 2017 claiming he needed to focus on his family. But it turns out that he was involved in a pedo priest scandal. This pedo named Higgins was a family or somehow personal acquaintance of the head of the GCHQ. When the pedo was accused of a crime against kids the head of the GCHQ vouched for the priest who was then let go. This priest then went on to commit another crime. Apparently big scandal in the UK.

So the GCHQ is the top Brittish intelligence agency dealing with communications and items such as cryptography. The scandal led to the Queen not inviting PM May to her grandsons wedding. (??)

It seems that something is missing in this story. I think it has to do with timing and what happened when. How the heck is all this linked together and tied to PDT and the coup? However I do remember that during PDTs first two years there were a lot of pedo gangs busted, and it sure seems like there's a lot of pedophilia running through all the anti Trump actors...Plus how is the Queen involved in all of this? Wasnt her son Andrew accused of visiting pedo island at one point? Or was this all false news too?

Booming -- and Tightening -- Job Market Has Predictable Effect: Workers Are Getting Their First Legitimate Raises in Decades

Suppy/demand -- how does it work?

The right has a split between people who think that worker's wages should be driven down as low as possible, forever, using off-shoring for plants that can be moved, and imported cheaper laborers for those that can't be moved, and people who think that maybe conservatism does include the idea of workers increasing in prosperity as well.

And some of us think that driving down workers' wages forever is politically dangerous and may lead to socialism. You can't frustrate people forever without them taking action, even if it is counterproductive.

But whatever, invade the world, invite the world, the only thing that conservatism should care about is the welfare of corporations, even as more and more corporations are now Citizens of the World not even owing a nominal allegiance to the United States.

US employers are stepping on the accelerator -- and that's lifting average salaries and fueling record raises across many sectors. For the typical American worker, pay increases could soon surge past 4 percent or 5 percent for the year, according to labor experts.

By any stretch, the number crunchers say, it's a big jump to catch up on the anemic salary growth over the past 10 years, thanks to the law of supply and demand and a booming economy. Job openings recently surpassed the number of unemployed by 1.3 million. And it's starting to trigger bottlenecks.


...

Average hourly earnings in the private sector have risen by 3.2 percent in the past year. By Frick's account, while global forces such as outsourcing could still hold back wage increases, by as early as next year the US could potentially see wages rise an average of 4.5 percent -- similar to the peak of the 2000s' expansion -- or even as much as 5.5 percent, as happened at the peak of the 1990 to 2001 expansion.

Robert Johnson, chairman and CEO at Economic Index Associates, is convinced the US economy will see strong wage growth, possibly north of 4 percent over the coming months and next few years. Johnson attributes this to productivity gains and labor shortages.

14 The dirty little secret?

We have been loosing on the wage front for years.

Government sanctioned targets for inflation have been larger than salary gains, for YEARS.

Which means in real terms, the US Worker has been on the short end.

OH, and if you figure inflation like they did in the 90's? ie, real inflation? We are north of 5% per year still.

So even a 4.5% increase in wages, is loosing.

My work (a church) has been saying we got a raise in January.

What we really got was a one time bonus calculated as X percent of our BASE pay the prior year. After not getting any kind of raise the prior two years. So it was almost enough to keep up with official inflation for the prior year in real terms.

If my hourly pay didn't go up, you didn't give me a raise. Try being a little more honest, mmmk?

I support capitalism and free markets, but you have to be an idiot not to see a few steps beyond "pure capitalism" that there will be severe political consequences if you allow all the jobs to move overseas and immigrants to come here in a race to the bottom.

Sure, you can make a case that's "small government", but be prepared for the country to look like Venezuela in a single generation. But I guess it's all about maximizing wealth like a parasite, who cares about the host.

include the idea of workers increasing in prosperity as well.

People can have whatever opinion on trade unions that they want, but the simple fact is that the "Management Is The Enemy" mindset isn't entirely manufactured by Commies. I have seen and known and worked with companies whose attitude toward their workforce was absolute contempt, who would cut every corner and screw their people as far as they possibly could, to get that extra dollar out of them.

And it's not simply a matter of "Go get another job", a lot of the time. Okay. Where? Can you afford to not work? Is the next place any better? What are your skills and what is the local demand? The free market doesn't solve all these problems cleanly like the Shapiros of the world like to think.

The idea that people need to get used to a lower standard of living is utterly un-American. It's the opposite of what I've been taught all my life, that the free market gives Americans a higher standard of living than any other country on Earth.

But I guess if the goal is imposing socialism on a nation, then you have to make people suffer so that they run to the government as their only hope to save them.

The more taxes you pay, the more votes you get to cast. $1.00 to $3,000.00 should equal 1 vote. So if you paid $60,000.00 in taxes last year, you get 20 votes to cast in any federal elections of the same year in your district.

If you pay no taxes or collect a federal check in any form, no vote for you, except for those in uniform and on active duty.

This is deceptive. 22-27 means that they were entering the work force during the Obama years, when employment sucked. A lot of younger workers stayed in school as long as they could, or went back to get more education even if to just live off of the student loans.

152 It has always amazed me how badly people have explained the Citizens United Decsion has been:

FIRST: it did not say that "Corporations are people", what it did was not a constant and basic assumption in American Law and English Common Law before that, which has been legally acknowledged for over 400 years now in the English Speaking world - Corporations are *treated* as persons under the law, meaning that they have the same protections from Government as persons do, under the law. It is a limitation on Government power, it always has been.

Systems where Corporations are NOT treated as persons under the law are the systems set up by Stalin, Mussolini, and Hitler. Under those systems, the Government can commandeer assets and direct actions to be taken simply because they order it, and with no other legal justification. Because those entities have no rights under the law.

The entire political class is desperate to keep the stock market booming. Everyone's net worth is wholly dependent on the market now whether they realize it or not. Not just retirement savings, but all forms of wealth are predicated on it. All asset value collapses if the stock market does because of how high finance has evolved. That's why the 2008 bailouts were such a disaster. There's no going back now.

Posted by: Don Q at May 21, 2019 08:39 PM (NgKpN)

166 Catch 22. I've watch the first two of six episodes.

First, the good news. It has a good, authentic look, including the combat scenes (although they often seem to fly awfully low). And, I think, the soundtrack is great, mostly the big band swing that those guys actually listen to.

The not so good news, it just doesn't capture the madcap chaos of the book and, largely, of the Alan Arkin film. One problem, is the structure. Part of the appeal of the novel, and it's one of my all time favorite novels, is the barely controlled chaos. Not only does the novel start in the middle and veer wildly forward and backward in time, often a paragraph would start talking about one thing and end up talking about another. (The Arkin movie started at the end then jumped around throughout Yossarian's tour.) This series starts at the beginning (stateside training) and, so far anyway, proceeds chronologically. That increases comprehension of the story arc but lacks the chaotic frenzy of the original. Similarly, Arkin played Yossarian as a rather hangdog, increasingly desperate guy. This Yossarian is a pretty boy, frat boy type known as "Yo-Yo". Again the frantic desperation is missing. I should also mention this Major Major Major Major can't hold a candle to Bob Newhart. Finally, this series is three times the length of the Arkin movie and yet doesn't seem to add much.

In short, this series turns the madcap, slapstick, dark terror comedy of the original into a much more conventional, often maudlin and sentimental, dramedy.

Incidentally, the book The Bridgebusters by Thomas McKelvie Cleaver tells the true story of author Joseph Heller's service. I was very surprised to learn that much of the most unbelievable parts of Catch 22 were true.

168 People can have whatever opinion on trade unions that they want, but the
simple fact is that the "Management Is The Enemy" mindset isn't
entirely manufactured by Commies. I have seen and known and worked with
companies whose attitude toward their workforce was absolute contempt,
who would cut every corner and screw their people as far as they
possibly could, to get that extra dollar out of them.


That wasn't the point I was trying to make in that comment. I've never worked in a union state, but I have worked for a few companies who viewed their employees as disposable. Usually, they don't last very long once word gets around. That's when having a union is handy, but that's not easy in a right-to-work state like down here and in Alabama.


My point was that I didn't understand why there would be people here who would want their fellow countrymen to suffer for no reason. Why would anybody be against their neighbors having a good standard of living? How would they feel if somebody did to them what they propose happen to the rest of us?
And the government is directly to blame, particularly BJ Cliton's administration, for the millions of unemployed Americans in the wake of the abortion of NAFTA. Ol' Slow Joe Biden voted for that POS. I hope PDT reminds everyone of that at every campaign stop in the runup to '020.

182 But that was just the very first step of the Citizens United decision. The next step was to revisit Buckley vs Valeo (1976), which held that Money was Speech, and therefore Spending for one's political ideas was to be protected, just as all political speech was to be protected. Remember, this decision was on the books for 40 years and nobody, left or right, democrat or republican, complained or thought it was a bad decision.

So: Supreme Court Precedent, 1976 - Political Money is Political Speech, protected by the 1st Amendment.

400 years of American and English Common Law: corporations have the same rights as persons under the law.

Citizens United simply took these two long standing precedents and combined them. it was nothing new.

I'd also point out that newspapers, magazines, television broadcasters, loathed as they are here, are all examples of corporations and freedom of the press is an explicit right. Blogs and blogging platforms, too. AoS, maybe? Mee dot nu?

Anyway, corporations also own property (like people!) which is really handy when your small business goes into bankruptcy and all of its assets are seized but your personal assets remain untouched.

Even Adam Smith argued for protectionism when it came to critical industries.

You can also argue from more of a Taleb angle: that a diverse economy, actual diversity which reduces idiosyncratic risk, makes you less fragile. When your economy is highly specialized, and reliant on a massively interconnected global trade network, you're a lot more exposed to black swans that create havoc.

242 I'd also point out that newspapers, magazines,
television broadcasters, loathed as they are here, are all examples of
corporations and freedom of the press is an explicit right. Blogs and
blogging platforms, too. AoS, maybe? Mee dot nu?



Anyway, corporations also own property (like people!) which is
really handy when your small business goes into bankruptcy and all of
its assets are seized but your personal assets remain untouched.



Etc etc etc...fucking Econ 101. When did this blog go hard fucking left?

I'm fully aware of what corporations are. I helped a guy start a food truck business last week. He formed a corporation. The guy cutting my lawn right now also formed a corporation.

The freedom of the press was not meant for corporations or the New York Times. It was meant for you and me.
My position appears to be the same as Ace's in his post. It seems to me the Leftist position is that the rights of a group (or collective) is equal to an individual's God given rights. I disagree.

I was down in God's country of Southern VA, and the local grocery store had the small jars of Dukes on sale. I bought four because I really don't use it often and I like it to be opened before the expiration date.

Absolutely.

In that event it's also likely to be vital to the rival as well. So (if possible/practical after achieving self sufficiency) it also makes sense to take a run at their comparative advantage and try to force them out of profitability in that industry, even if it means running at a loss for some time.

It's vital to cover your own contingencies, and it's WONDERFUL if you can prevent them from meeting their own needs, though that part isn't always realistic.

267 The whole "corporations are persons" thing is a crock. The real issue is whether people lose their rights when they act together. Clearly, I have a right, as articulated by the First Amendment, to purchase an ad in a newspaper to advocate my political position, and so do you. We don't lose that right if we choose to pool our resources and work together - yet that is exactly what the Left is saying. Or rather, the Left says that you can pool your resources and speak out - but only if you take a position of which we approve.
Also ... can we finally drop the notion that there is something called "the Right" in this country? There is a Left, which has a coherent political philosophy, albeit one that is evil; and there's the rest of us, who, for one reason or another, oppose the Left's totalitarian ambitions. Any political movement that runs the spectrum from ultramontanist Catholics to acolytes of Ayn Rand can hardly be said to be coherent. As a Catholic and a small-government republican, I may accept the Chamber of Commerce types as allies on certain narrowly defined issues, but they are hardly part of the same political movement that I am. Left and anti-Left: that's American politics today.

It's flavor is clearly superior to Duke's, and pulls barely ahead of Hellman's and it's Blue Ribbon doppelganger.

While I'll readily admit that the creamy smoothness of Duke's is an attraction, what it's not is flavor.

And this is where the Kroger's store brand stands above both. It has just the perfect touch of citrus tanginess, just a bit more than Hellman's, and far better than the "blah" that is Duke's, on the palate.

Ben Had, Insom... give the Kroger's a try. I think you'll be very pleasantly surprised!

Oh bullshit. Go upthread, and actually read what people have written regarding the definition of "corporation" in legal terminology. Has very little to do with businesses.

Citizen's United was about a non-profit group that put out a video critical of the Clintons. For some reason, you seem bound and determined to side with the Clintons, because of an emotional reaction to a word.

In the interview for this job, I did my normal. It was an interview for management so I got the suit out and dusted off. Wore my Grandfather's cufflinks for luck. Took a note pad.

In the car before the interview, I went back over the email and saw this: Business casual- no suits. So I shrugged out of the suit jacket and went with what I had- no chance to change into khakis and a polo.

My now manager was telling me after the first couple of minutes that I was already head and shoulders above the other people he was interviewing because I was asking questions, writing things down and had gotten a haircut. For a management position- and not fast food!

What a world.

313 If you think about it, Democrats in the Presidency typically results in a recession and higher taxes with lower wages or even job loss.

The inverse is typically true with Republicans in the Oval Office.

Bill Clinton lucking into a technology revolution aside, I've seen this play out over and over in my life.

So why in God's name do people vote Democrat? Well, glad you asked. The people that vote D are typically in government jobs (can't be fired), education (same when tenured), unemployed and don't give a crap, in college and don't see a job as necessary and more I can't think of.

Then there is always the people that have it good for 4 or 8 years and grow complacent and forget about what Democrats do to the economy.

There is always the war angle. People wanting out of a war so they dump the President they think is responsible.

The answer is actually fairly simple, and obvious. People who are members of those corporations already have the right to vote, and so adding an additional vote would actually be doubling, and absurd result.

People don't understand the concept of "Rights" under the Constitution - they are NOT "Things the government grants", as the Left thinks. They are "Things the Government cannot mess with, because we do not grant the government that power."

Rights under the Constitution are a LIMITATION on Government Power. That is virtually unique to the American System of Government, and is why it makes perfect sense, when you understand what "Rights" are, for corporate entities to have those same protections.

342 Why do we give corporations legal protections?
Why do we subsidize marriage?
Why do we do any of the myriad things as government policy?

Well, there's generally two answers. The first, cynical answer, is because when buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first thing that will be bought and sold are legislators. Thus has it always been, thus shall it ever be.

But less cynically, it's because we (using the Royal We now) have determined that it's beneficial for our society to do these things. And those protections will (and should) stay in place until such time as that calculus changes.

Which is why I'm a nationalist first, and a free-market 'capitalist' long afterward. Nation first; I believe free-markets and free people make for a better nation. But the day our "corporate citizens" decide that our nation can be sacrificed for the good of their profit margins and shareholder value, then fuck them and their privileged legal status.

We were saddled with all the state and federal regulatons of the big boys, including tax collection, benefits, HR regs (yeah, including the trannys), and much, much more. As far as employees go, most are good and some are not, but precious few of them had any idea of the regulations imposed on corporations. Wages were dictated by the market; we were in a small town. If someone (and there were more than a few) wanted the wages paid in NYC, well then, move to NYC. Not all corporations are evil.

Ok last post on the topic. Ace's post seems to be lamenting the "corporations are people" concept which comes from the SCOTUS ruling that corps have the same freedom of speech as people. The case was about spending on a political campaign and the decision was essentially that money equals speech.

The reason I've asked so many times why the corp was necessary in the first place was for the obvious answer: those people thought they'd found a loophole to a restriction that was placed on their own individual spending (speech). Instead of fighting for their individual right and the unconstituional limit placed on it they chose a loophole end-run instead. And here we are, defending the absurd notion that corporations are people because of it.

377 298 In the Mayo Wars, I am a Kroger's "CLASSIC MAYO" guerilla.

It's flavor is clearly superior to Duke's, and pulls barely ahead of Hellman's and it's Blue Ribbon doppelganger.

While I'll readily admit that the creamy smoothness of Duke's is an attraction, what it's not is flavor.

And this is where the Kroger's store brand stands above both. It has just the perfect touch of citrus tanginess, just a bit more than Hellman's, and far better than the "blah" that is Duke's, on the palate.

Ben Had, Insom... give the Kroger's a try. I think you'll be very pleasantly surprised!

Posted by: Brian in New Orleans at May 21, 2019 09:09 PM (rnXGe)

As I said in an earlier post, Buckley vs. Valeo, 1976. Money is Speech, meaning the right to Free Political Speech means the right to Spend Money on Political Speech.

In a mass media world, politically effective speech (such as making a film, the issue in the Citizens United case) takes far more money than any individual will have (except for the billionaires) So, banding together in groups is the ONLY way in today's society that individuals can effectively exercise their Rights to Free Political Speech under the Constitution. That's the heart of Citizens United.

To say otherwise is to create the rule that ONLY Billionaires have the right to effective Political Speech in this country. (Because they can spend unlimited amounts of their own money without anyone else's help) Does anyone think that would be a result we want?

392 There was one more aspect of Buckley vs Valeo that Citizens United expanded on. Buckley vs. Valeo held that restrictions on political donations to candidates could be allowed, because of the public interest in preventing the appearance of corruption.

BUT in Citizens United, they were NOT supporting any candidate - and they were NOT donating time and advertising to any candidate. The Citizens United group made an movie/ad that said, basically, "The Clintons Are Corrupt! Don't Vote for them! We'll support ANYONE who opposes the Clinton's!"

Naturally, Hillary wanted that banned completely. The Citizens United Decision held that since this was pure issue advocacy and did not involve a contribution in kind to any particular candidate, there was no appearance of corruption and the restriction allowed in Buckley vs Valeo did not apply.

Pure Issue Advocacy may not be regulated by the Government. No matter who does it.

Ok last post on the topic. Ace's post seems to be lamenting the "corporations are people" concept which comes from the SCOTUS ruling that corps have the same freedom of speech as people. The case was about spending on a political campaign and the decision was essentially that money equals speech.

The reason I've asked so many times why the corp was necessary in the first place was for the obvious answer: those people thought they'd found a loophole to a restriction that was placed on their own individual spending (speech). Instead of fighting for their individual right and the unconstituional limit placed on it they chose a loophole end-run instead. And here we are, defending the absurd notion that corporations are people because of it.


The principle that corporations are considered "people" under the law is not absurd, but a logical extension of the idea of individual rights as enumerated in the Constitution. Regardless of why they formed a corporation, they are and should be able to exercise the same rights as a corporation as they did as individuals.

The sudden disdain for that principle on the Right is entirely due to emotionalism and the fact that certain for-profit corporations are are proving to be politically hostile. It is just another manifestation of the mob mentality that shows itself here from time to time, and certainly not based either on good logic or well-founded principles.

One can be all in favor of breaking up tech monopolies like Google without adopting the rhetoric and emotional idiocy of the Left regarding basic constitutional principles.

Austrian Government Falls as Right-Wing Partner Caught Offering to Fix Contracts In Undercover Sting

There'a RUSSIAN COLLUSION angle here -- or at least a pretended one.

The right-wing party was not the majority party, but its votes were necessary to prop up its larger partner and give it a large enough coalition to govern.

Austria raced on Saturday toward a snap election as Chancellor Sebastian Kurz pulled the plug on his coalition with the far right after its leader was caught on video offering to fix state contracts with a woman posing as a Russian oligarch's niece.

The far-right Freedom Party's Heinz-Christian Strache resigned as vice chancellor and party leader after the video was released by two German news organizations. He acknowledged that the video was "catastrophic" but denied breaking the law.

So, it's not that hard to catch someone making deals with (presumed) Russians if the targets are actually inclined to do so.

And yet Muller and Kristol and Glenn Simpson and all the coupists and conspirators have bubkis on Trump.

Seems to me to be circumstantial evidence that there was no Russian collusion, and there never was.

19 "Far right" = non-racist, non-authoritarian, not opposed to rule of law and open societies, i.e. what WWII and the Cold War were largely about.


Talked with some Austrians 2 weeks ago. They said even there, reasonable people are shocked at how quickly everything has devolved to mindless name-calling by the authoritarian mob [their favorite, natch, is "Nazi!" - these people are stunned that even in a place where the word concept and history have a real meaning, it's completely lost its meaning, and is close to being inverted in meaning].

He's hardly worse than most American leftists, and certainly not the most pressing threat America faces. But Russia doesn't have a ton of money for this, and the advantages gained for selling out your country are minimal.

That said, in the face of full on tyranny, mild corruption is almost quaint. He should have had that chick arrested.

130 I have less of a grasp of Austrian than of German politics, but this smells like a set-up to me, possibly by Kurz. He's done a lot of good the last year or so, but from my reading of the Austrian news, I think he's ultimately in it for himself. He doesn't want to go all the way to the Right, and I could see him orchestrating all this to discredit the Freedom Party and perhaps solidify his own power.

Whether it works out that way is another story. If the Freedom Party actually gains votes in the election, it could be popcorn time in Vienna.

Talked with some Austrians 2 weeks ago.

180 Ac, you're missing the possibly explosive angle to this story.

The sting video involving the fake Russian oligarch meting with the right-wing Austrian politician was actually filmed two or three YEARS ago -- around the time of Trump's election -- adnwas only leaked to the press in the days leading up to a big election in Austria. Everyone in Europe agrees that the professional nature of the bombshell October Surprise -- NON ONE knows where it came from, or who originally leaked it to whom, plus everyone involved is completely untraceble, plus it was timed to the minute for maximum political damage - -means that the sting set-up MUST has been arranged by some nation;s intelligence organization -- or several nations working together.

AND THEN someone noticed the "odd" coincidence that thus Russian-influence sting happened EXACTLY when the US/UK intelligence services were trying to entrap Trump into some similar scheme.

Basically, what just happened in Austria is what was SUPPOSED to happen to Trump - -probably enacted by the same players -- but while the Austrian fell for the scheme, Trump did NOT, and instead did nothing illegal and brushed off the honeypot entrapment attempts.

What we are seeing is what what the Deep State had planned for Trump. But in our case they failed. Because Trump, to their great chagrin, was Mr. Clean.

McConnell will try to extract something from Trump. Mittens and Sasse will be in front of the cameras every day, whining and crying. . . .And the whole thing will blow up in the Democrat's face.

Judicial Watch Wins Legal Fees From Antifa Middle-School Teacher Yvette Falarca for Her Frivolous Lawsuit

lol get fvcked.


Judicial Watch announced that a U.S. District Judge in California awarded Judicial Watch $22,000 in legal fees in a case filed by an Antifa organizer in an effort to block Judicial Watch from obtaining information about her activities.

Yvette Felarca, a middle school teacher in the Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD), and two co-plaintiffs were ordered to pay Judicial Watch $22,000 in attorney’s fees and $4,000 in litigation costs. Felarca had sued the BUSD in federal court to keep the school district from fulfilling its legal obligation to provide Judicial Watch with records of their communications mentioning: Felarca, Antifa, and/or BAMN. Judicial Watch also asked for Felarca’s personnel file.

Felarca is a prominent figure in By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), a group founded by the Marxist Revolutionary Workers League that protests conservative speaking engagements. In 2016, Felarca and two of her allies were arrested and charged with several crimes, including felony assault, for inciting a riot in Sacramento. Earlier this year, Felarca was ordered to stand trial for assault.

U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria, Northern District of California, who had previously ruled that Felarca's lawsuit was "entirely frivolous," wrote in his ruling awarding legal fees to Judicial Watch that Felarca and her co-plaintiffs' First Amendment claims were "premised on the obviously baseless assumption" that the First Amendment condemns the speech of some while condoning the ideological missions of others.

What could have given her that idea? The mere fact that the media, the tech monopolies, and the Ruling Class acts as if that is what the First Amendment says, and is rapidly transforming it into that before our very eyes?

If there is anything to take heart from here, it is the example of the 1980s.

And then one day, the whole facade cracked, and then tumbled.

68 On the 1st Amendment note, I don't fully understand why conservative personalities continue to give free content to Facebook or Twitter.

I mean certainly the exposure the platform gives them can be lucrative, but they also have to know that that its pretty much a given that their time there is limited.

It's like remodeling a rented office space that you have no lease agreement with the landlord and the landlord has indicated they will be evicting you soon. And yet you continue to insist on fixing the place up and paying rent. I just don't get it.

98 I've said this before, but I think one reason the Dems in the House will try to impeach Trump (and very likely succeed) is so they can later claim "Trump can't nominate any more judges! He's been impeached!" (Especially if Buzzy Ginsberg checks out)
Posted by: mallfly the Peach of Hoboken at May 21, 2019 06:13 PM (ZqRa6)

You realize the House voting for impeachment is simply "indicting" the president. They have no role in the president's trial, that takes place in the Senate. And there are no rules or constitutional comments stating the president cannot continue to fulfill his role while he is being impeached. So he gets to nominate judges and they go directly to the Senate for confirmation.

This is why the holding the Senate was and is so important.

My guess it is censorship. The Canadian govt. would likely go after any distributor that would provide the movie to theaters, along with the theater owners themselves. My guess is the movie would fall under Canada's hate speech laws and therefore is liable to the Govt. hand. Something about targeting women or some such thing.

127 If I could share something unrelated...

Back in 1993-94, I worked for a small startup computer school called Focus Automation, which later became Focus Institute. At that job I had a fantastic-- and not bad-looking boss, named Anna Brannon.

Anyway ever since that job ended (too soon like all my other jobs), I've wanted to catch up to her. I spent years looking for her online, but she seemed to disappear after 1996; there was nothing about her at all online after that year.

Anyway, I finally found her... but it wasn't good. Turns out she passed away last year, and she was only a year older than me. As I said, I haven't seen or spoken to her in years, but it still feels sad.

I was 26, she was 19. And she was vastly more worldly than I was, or indeed, am now. She spoke nonchalantly about her various numerous friends at Berkeley High who'd died of drug overdoses, what later came to be called AIDS, the drugs she herself had done, how many of her classmates had had abortions, what have you.

She'd see the astonished look on my face, and reply, "What?"

I also knew of the son of a Berkeley faculty member who'd regularly been beaten up because he was Jewish.

Berkeley High sounded like a wonderful place. To avoid.

172 OK, I'm back from voting. There was no bond issue. The only contested races were for judges and school board members. I picked a couple that weren't GOPe endorsed.

On my way to the polling place I came to a stop sign and saw a woman creeping up slowly on a chihuahua that had gotten loose. I remained stopped until she caught it and picked it up. I was starting to pull out and she came over to my window saying, "I don't know whose dog this is. I was driving by and saw it running around in the street."

I told her the location of the nearest vet's office, and she said she would ask around at some houses on the street. She wasn't there when I got back, so I guess it had a happy ending.

Mueller: I Don't Want to Testify Before Jerry Nadler and His Enormous Man-gunt

The conspiracy theorists who've been suggesting that AG Barr was blocking Mueller from testifying are wrong, yet again.

Manu Raju works at CNN -- or, let's agree, draws a paycheck from CNN -- to type up the Democrats' and Mueller team's (but I repeat myself) leaks:

Manu Raju

@mkraju

NEWS: Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team has expressed reticence to him testifying publicly in front of the House Judiciary Committee, according to sources familiar with the matter. His team has expressed that he does not want to appear political....

One option is to have him testify behind closed doors, but sources caution numerous options are being considered in the negotiations between the committee and the special counsel’s team. Nadler has called for public testimony

A twitter user commenting on this made a halfway decent speculation: Mueller may be essentially asking to be subpoenaed, so he can claim he resisted being "political" to the utmost. Then, having been subpoenaed, he can go in there and be suuuuuper political -- but hey, he was forced to, right?

If Nadler doesn't subpoena him, that's going to look pretty strange, given his threats and bluster -- and subpeona! -- to Don McGahn.

Meanwhile...

The Justice Department warned House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff if the panel moves forward with a contempt vote or other punishment against Attorney General William Barr, it will no longer work together on a deal that would allow members to view a less-redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report.

In a letter sent Tuesday to Schiff, D-Calif., from Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, the Justice Department proposed a meeting this week with the House Intelligence panel’s senior staff to continue to search for a compromise in response to 12 requests made by the committee.

But that meeting won’t happen if the panel decides to punish Barr for failing to turn over the unredacted report, Boyd warned.

Why would anyone testify behind closed doors for the House Democrats when the Democrats will just go ahead and release your testimony anyway.

House Democrats have released the "behind closed doors" testimony of Michael Cohen. You know, the testimony that contradicts what Cohen said in public testimony.

Cohen told Democrats, behind closed doors, that Trump's lawyer told him to lie. So naturally the Democrats wanted to publicly testify so he drop this bomb on live fake news.

We all know what Cohen ended up saying in his public testimony: The Truth.

But that's not stopping the Democrats from releasing the "behind closed doors" session in which Cohen says what they wanted him to say.

A "gunt" refers to a gut so obese on a woman that it droops down far enough to cover her genitals. Mangunt is the male version.

Posted by: zombie at May 21, 2019 04:52 PM (5tb4C)

yes and they are both plagues upon humanity
Posted by: Nevergiveup


I'm now interested in the history of the phrase "the band played on."

The first usage I can think of is in the the popular late nineteenth century waltz "The Girl With the Strawberry Curls" from 1895, a.k.a. "The Strawberry Blonde" a.k.a. "The Band Played On":

"He'd ne'er leave the girl
With the strawberry curls,
And the band played on."

Next time it appears in culture was, as far as I know, in the 1970 Temptations hit "Ball of Confusion":

"Evolution, revolution, gun control, sound of soul
Shooting rockets to the moon, kids growing up too soon
Politicians say more taxes will solve everything
And the band played on"

Then of course there was the weepy anti-Reagan AIDS book "And the Band Played On" by Randy Shilts in 1987.

But my question is: Did the phrase start in 1895? Or was it an existing phrase by then?

Also: When did it acquire its sardonic meaning of "all sorts of horrible things might happen, but the world will keep turning nonetheless." In the original 1895 song, it was more literal -- there actually was a real band they kept playing. When did it become a political term?

Posted by: Mark Andrew Edwards

The first I heard it used was during the Occupy Movement ca. 2011, when toxic twenty-something leftists would shout that phrase at passersby who argued with them, to drown them out, at the same time mocking their speech as meaningless babble:

Occupy cretins: "Stop the hate!"
Passerby: "Hey YOU'RE the ones doing the hating--"
Occupy cretins: "ARGLE BARGLE! ARGLE BARGLE!"

319 Also: When did it acquire its sardonic meaning of "all sorts of horrible things might happen, but the world will keep turning nonetheless." In the original 1895 song, it was more literal -- there actually was a real band they kept playing. When did it become a political term?
Posted by: zombie


Maybe a reference to the band on the Titanic, that continued to play as the ship went down in order to try to calm the people there. They went down with the ship, playing to the last. (Legend has it the last tune was "Nearer, My God, To Thee", though this is disputed by several sources.)

Posted by: James Comey at May 21, 2019 05:45 PM (T6t7i)

363 Your childhood thievery schemes were all so simplistic and obvious. Mine were much more devious and complicated.

When I was about 9 years old, my dad threw a big barbecue in a nearby park for all his drunkard friends. There were about 50 adults there, all totally soused. I devised the following convoluted plan, and then put it into action -- and it worked!

When no one was looking, I reached into the purse of one of the drunken floozies at the barbecue, and took her wallet. But did I remove any money from it? No! Instead, I snuck over and hid it underneath one of the cars they had driven to the barbecue, next to a back wheel. Then I waited. Nearly TWO HOURS later, when people were starting to leave, the floozy FINALLY noticed her wallet missing, and starting screaming and becoming hysterical. Everyone started looking for it, and of course I fell under suspicion as well. But I joined the search teams, and -- making sure to never get anywhere physically near the wallet -- pointed it out from afar, yelling, "There it is -- under that car!"

The floozy was so grateful that she gave me a $10 reward. Which had been my plan all along -- to get the reward and become a hero for finding the lost wallet.

Sheer genius, I tell ya.

411 "A twitter user commenting on this made a halfway decent speculation: Mueller may be essentially asking to be subpoenaed, so he can claim he resisted being "political" to the utmost. Then, having been subpoenaed, he can go in there and be suuuuuper political -- but hey, he was forced to, right?"

If he does House he'll have to do Senate where I do believe the questioning might get a little uncomfortable. Heck House R's would get a crack too. Good chance he doesn't want to get cross examined because he's done a lot of stuff that is durty and the MSM have buried it well but if he has to talk about why he picked Clinton Foundation lawyers he might not look to great. No, all in all I think it could easily turn out to be a negative for the Left to allow Nunes even 5 minutes to question him.

425 Why the fuck would Mueller want to testify? Why engage in this shit show any longer? Imagine how many political axes will try and get him for obstruction, or lying under oath, or what not.

I'd say fuck that - the intelligence committee is a bunch of lunatic assholes.

If they force you to testify, answer every questions with "its in the report." If they ask about anything not in the report say "I don't recall", or "I'm not here to talk about personal and confidential matters."

That would put everyone back in a tough spot. Citing Mueller for contempt casts a shadow over the work the Dems hope too use against Trump.

Breitbart: FaceBook Has a List of Conservative Speakers They Deem to be "Hate Agents" Who Are Pre-scheduled for Banning

But #MuhPrivateMonopolies.

Hey, monopolies are always more efficient, right?

They certainly are very efficient at limiting political speech before a major election.

Let's devote another fifty years to servicing them, both legislatively and sexually.

Facebook maintains a list of "hate agents" for monitoring and potential termination, according to a source inside the company. Among the names reportedly on the "hate agent" list? Star pundit and black conservative activist Candace Owens.

According to the source, a Facebook employee who spoke exclusively to Breitbart News, the spreadsheet of "hate agents" that includes Owens was posted to an internal employee discussion group initially founded by Brian Amerige, the former Facebook engineer who quit the company over concerns about political intolerance.

The source claimed that the spreadsheet includes the names of prominent right-wing and alternative media figures who were recently banned from the platform.

Candace Owens is also included in the spreadsheet, in a separate category marked "extra credit."

A Facebook spokeswoman confirmed to Breitbart News that the list exists, and did not deny that Owens' name appears on it, but believes that there has not yet been an investigation into her.

The list is "related to" the purge that took Paul Joseph Watson and others on May 2nd.

So how long for Candace Owens and the others on the list?

Well, apparently for Candace Owens, the time came last week.



Breitbart just revealed another name on the "hate agents" list -- Brigitte Gabriel -- and more details about their process of "investigating" conservatives until they can amass enough pretext to ban them.

The signals are divided into Level One (signals that occurred in the past year), Level Two (two years) and Level Three (three years). Signals include hate speech, support for a "designated hate entity" or "designated hateful ideology," calls for violence, the promotion of ethnostates, acts of violence from supporters, and possession of "hate paraphernalia."



The spreadsheet also includes a "recommendations" field next to each individual name. In this field, Facebook employees can advise whether the individual should be categorized as a "Hate Agent” or not, and if they should be removed from the platform.

...

Brigitte Gabriel, founder of the Islamic extremism watchdog ACT! For America, was added to the spreadsheet in the main category.

Meanwhile, FaceBook doubles down on its decision to block a Trump 2020 advisory board member.

Her post made a simple and true point: That the left simultaneously pushes a theory of gender essentialism -- that women are inherently superior, that only women who can become pregnant should have input into the abortion laws, etc. -- as well as the completely contradictory theory that gender is all a social construct invented by (and here's another weird contradiction) The Patriarchy.

So which is it? Is a uterus a real thing which imbues its carrier with the wisdom of all saints or is a uterus just a fiction made up to keep you down by The Man?

FaceBook decided this was hateful speech and blocked her account.

And she didn't even post that, really. She just quoted Matt Walsh's tweet making that point.

On Wednesday, Facebook blocked Trump 2020 advisory board member Jenna Ellis Rives over a pro-life post. She appealed the decision. On Sunday, Facebook finally got back to her, and doubled down, claiming the post violated its "community standards" on "hate speech."

Rives posted a photo of a tweet from blogger Matt Walsh, pointing out how transgender activism undermines key pro-choice arguments. "Gender is a social construct but I am woman hear me roar but anyone can be a woman but no uterus no opinion but transwomen are women but I demand women's rights but men are women but men are scum but drag queens are beautiful but appropriation is evil," Walsh tweeted.


...

After the original block, the Trump advisory board member told PJ Media that "Facebook's 'community standards' simply mean they are... censoring conservative thought."

"Facebook continues to suppress conservatives critiquing the progressive left and calling out their hypocrisy," Rives said. "We never see this kind of suppression when it's actual hatred from the left, for instance, attacks against Mike Pence for his Christian beliefs."

But #MuhHolyMonopolies.

40 When a fiend of a friend on FB posted on their wall "bang bang Trump" and it was never taken down. Never banned. Never investigated.

42 These social media companies sure are spending a lot of resources on this sort of effort.

Instead of finding ways to make the experience better for all, they want to spend their time trying to punish members of the country that they don't like.

All while the Left still wants to take them out because the "helped" Donald Trump win the presidency.

This is just amusing.

44 They don't want free speech or liberty, they want control.

Liberties lost are seldom regained without a fight or armed conflict. That's why liberals try to censor your viewpoints and take away your Second Amendments right, which is the final line of defense.

I tell friends all the time the Democrats don't want to govern, they want to rule.

In that context, it all makes sense, the attempted control of speech in the public square, the attack on ideas, the triumph of pathos over intellectual discourse and the attempt to dupe people into thinking their candidates are somehow not simply Manchurian Candidates, but mainstream and not representative of their clearly subversive agenda.

It's not about black, white, Asian, Hispanic, gay, straight or any other demographic. It's about a free society, individual freedom, a country that respects constitutional liberties and American values.

49 It's from The Intercept:

Thanks to Facebook, Your Cellphone Company Is Watching You More Closely Than Ever

Among the mega-corporations that surveil you, your cellphone carrier has always been one of the keenest monitors, in constant contact with the one small device you keep on you at almost every moment. A confidential Facebook document reviewed by The Intercept shows that the social network courts carriers, along with phone makers --- some 100 different companies in 50 countries --- by offering the use of even more surveillance data, pulled straight from your smartphone by Facebook itself.

Offered to select Facebook partners, the data includes not just technical information about Facebook members' devices and use of Wi-Fi and cellular networks, but also their past locations, interests, and even their social groups. This data is sourced not just from the company's main iOS and Android apps, but from Instagram and Messenger as well. The data has been used by Facebook partners to assess their standing against competitors, including customers lost to and won from them, but also for more controversial uses like racially targeted ads.

Some experts are particularly alarmed that Facebook has marketed the use of the information --- and appears to have helped directly facilitate its use, along with other Facebook data --- for the purpose of screening customers on the basis of likely creditworthiness. Such use could potentially run afoul of federal law, which tightly governs credit assessments.

FarceBook being highly successful doesn't make it a monopoly. It's a sad commentary on our society but there is nothing monopolistic about FarceBook. What is it a monopoly over, exactly? Web sites? Blogs? Social nets? What, exactly?

FarceBook is a large, pathetically successful site run by America-hating shitheads. That's about it. But it has no monopoly over anything. It has traffic of people who refuse to consider any alternative and people pay tons of money to buy ads on it (that I doubt are effective, at all). That is the sad part of it all.

I don't use it either.

And an old timer back in the '30s or '40s could've made the same statement about the telephone. In fact, one of my great-uncles did. He didn't need any damn telephone.

That doesn't take into account that the invention of the device changed the world, and changed the market such that a telephone became a necessity. The old ways were destroyed, the new technology became a necessity. A practical, market necessity.

So when Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Instagram etc. essentially shit can all non Salon Cuckshed approved "Conservatives" then what?
Social Media is where the fights are taking place.

126 Twitter I think is legitimately dying because Gen Z doesn't use it.

FB won't die any time soon without help. A government boot on Zuck's neck would be a nice start.

127 Or be a fag but get off Facebook anyway. There are lots of good alternatives now and they're not all dumpster fires like gab.ai is.

By the time the 50s arrives telephones were in virtually every home in America and were considered a necessity'

Posted by: Vic at May 21, 2019 03:31 PM (mpXpK)

135 BTW, the phone company was a government-built monopoly and power companies finally started making great strides once Reagan started deregulation of them, which until that point was totally unthinkable to most of America.

It was Microwave towers and Microwave Communications, Inc. (MCI) that got that started.

FarceBook is not necessary for anything

Unless of course you are looking for a job. Many employers don't want to talk to you if you don't have social media accounts.

Social media is a bubble, which is what their community standards people are creating. A virtual Brooklyn, with a bubble over it.

iirc, wasn't there some 911 / emergency service type legislation that opened the door?

Maybe I'm just making that up?

Posted by: garrett at May 21, 2019 03:32 PM (488xF)

146 The analogy about phones isn't really to FB, it's to the internet.

You *could* live without the internet - but not many of us are willing to.

But what does FB really have? It has people - but people can stop using it.
