Quote of the Day I

Two thousand years ago, a Roman could wander the known world confident that he would be unmolested by local unruly elements, protected only by the statement "Civis romanus sum," I am a Roman citizen. His confidence stemmed from a demonstrated assurance that any group that dared attack a Roman would trigger a response in the form of a Roman legion, which would deal swift and brutal justice. Juxtapose this image of a previous world-spanning hegemon with the image of ten American Sailors kneeling on the deck of their own vessel with their hands clasped together over their heads. It is an image of indignity and failure that is accompanied by the smell of rotting power.

...This is where we find ourselves today, kneeling on the world's stage, with our hands clasped over our heads, all the while trying to convince ourselves that this new position demonstrates our strength and earns respect. Civis americanus sum, I am an American citizen. Let the molesting begin.

-- Jerry Hendrix

Quote of the Day II

Meanwhile, Mann himself is now saying the satellite temperature record (which just whirrs away in space "unadjusted" ) is, like, totally unreliable. As Josh points out in the cartoon above, if you want a reliable temperature record, Mann's method is to use a single tree in Quebec's Gaspé peninsula that can tell you the precise temperature for the northern hemisphere - for New York, London, Cairo, Moscow, Beijing, the works - for an entire quarter-century at a time. Only deniers use mumbo-jumbo like "satellites"; a real scientist simply rubs his magic tree until it produces the desired treemometer reading.

-- Mark Steyn

Quote of the Day III

I particularly enjoyed the bit where the author took his not-very-hidden anti-Semitism and turned it into ostensible anti-Catholicism*. Well, 'enjoyed' is not the right word, of course. But it's not entirely the wrong one, either.

-- Moe Lane in Some day, sites like Salon will be able to talk about religion.

Quote of the Day IV

I see only two solutions to Oscar-related "race rows": equanimity in the face of disappointment, or quotas. Yes, quotas, whether explicit or implicit. These would be insulting and outrageous, of course: "black slots" at the Oscars. The very notion is repulsive. But the other route, equanimity in the face of disappointment, can be difficult, for all sorts of people.

-- Jay Nordlinger

So it's gonna be Oscar quotas then.

Quote of the Day V

The NYC commission, who have nothing else important to work on since NYC is an ideal city with no problems, no crime, and no other issues, anyway the commission considered a city regulation forbidding anyone in the city from putting salt in their food before sale.

Among other problems, a bunch of bakers went to the commission to inform them that you cannot make bread without salt because the yeast won't rise. Details, details... It's one more aspect of the encroaching nanny state, and I say this: you will take my salt shaker away from me when you pry it out of my cold dead fingers.

Politifact Tries to Retcon the Ending of the 1979 Iranian Hostage Crisis

Reagan had absolutely nothing to do with it you see.

We flagged Rubio's comment as a misleading framing of history. Reagan's inauguration in 1981 may have coincided with the release of the hostages, but historians say it did not cause it. Instead, the Iranians had tired of holding the hostages, and that the administration of Jimmy Carter did the legwork to get the hostages released.

...It's a GOP talking point we've debunked before. In 2012, Republican candidate Mitt Romney said, "I believe the right course is what Ronald Reagan called peace through strength ... There's a reason why the Iranians released the hostages on the same day and at the same hour that Reagan was sworn in." We rated his claim Pants on Fire.

...Despite the showy announcement, scholars of the period say that Reagan did not play any significant role in freeing the hostages.

Well except for his very existence, his implied threats of military force against Iran, and his imminent control of the White House and the US military.

And Steven Hayward points out that even the Washington Post editorial page the day after the hostage release gave Reagan's reputation credit:

"Who doubts that among Iran's reasons for coming to terms now was a desire to beat [Reagan] to town?"

So Pam Anderson Went to France and Babbled to the French Parliament About Food or Something

This is all seems rather dramatic. The Russkies let Pamela Anderson into the Kremlin last month and quietly listened to her drone about whale hunting they will never stop while they mentally undressed her. And mentally dressed Putin who started fucking Anderson mid-presentation while on horseback carrying a shotgun because he's Putin and he's one bad ass motherfucker and does shit that would make Obama cry.

That cliche bit about France being our oldest ally is some bullshit line politicians like to say when trying to make people care what happens to France who for their part hate our guts. I'm not buying it. You're not good enough for Pamela Anderson. That's a low fucking bar. Take our un-vetted Syrian refugees and we might call it even.

Cheaper Bigger Weddings Lead To Fewer Divorces

According to the study, a wedding ceremony has a massive impact on whether you will get divorced or not. One of the biggest factors is how many people attend the wedding and how much was spent on the ceremony.

Shockingly, couples who eloped (just the couple at the wedding) were 12.5x more likely to end up divorced than couples who were married at a wedding with 200+ people. Turns out having a large family and support group who care, at least enough to attend a wedding, is incredibly important to a long lasting marriage.

But there's even better news: a big wedding doesn't mean an expensive wedding. According to the study, the more you spend on your wedding, the more likely you'll end up divorced.

Couples who spent less than $1,000 were 53% less likely to divorce than couples who spent $20,000 or more. Contrary to what the wedding industry wants you to think (that the average wedding costs an astounding $30,000), more is not always better.

Inside the Next Generation McDonalds: McDonald's Next

Gone are the red-and-yellow color palette and harsh lighting.

In their place a sleek black-and-white logo, ambient lighting, glass and metallic interiors and... a salad bar.

The unlikely offering is filled with 19 ingredients including "two choices of salad base greens, two kinds of cheese, three flavors of sauces" and -- of course -- quinoa.

...McDonald's Next still has the regular menu and also offers the brand's new Create Your Taste (CYT) concept, which allows visitors to customize their burgers via touch screen.

Japan Keeps Train Station Running For Just One Passenger

With birthrates declining in the country, Japan's railways are rapidly running out of business. This means shutting down entire train lines due to low ridership. Included is the Kami-Shirataki train station. However, Japan Railway decided to make an exception and kept the defunct station open for the girl so she can attend high school.

The train stops there only twice a day. One in the morning to pick her up, and one in the afternoon to drop her off after school. They've been doing this for three years now and will end in March, when the high schooler finally graduates.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaius_Popillius_Laenas

"After receiving the submission of the inhabitants of Memphis and of the rest of the Egyptian people, some submitting voluntarily, others under threats, [Antiochus] marched by easy stages towards Alexandria. After crossing the river at Eleusis, about four miles from Alexandria, he was met by the Roman commissioners, to whom he gave a friendly greeting and held out his hand to Popilius. Popilius, however, placed in his hand the tablets on which was written the decree of the senate and told him first of all to read it. After reading it through, he said he would call his friends into council and consider what he ought to do. Popilius, stern and imperious as ever, drew a circle round the king with the stick he was carrying and said, "Before you step out of that circle give me a reply to lay before the senate." For a few moments he hesitated, astounded at such a peremptory order, and at last replied, "I will do what the senate thinks right." Not till then did Popilius extend his hand to the king as to a friend and ally. Antiochus evacuated Egypt at the appointed date, and the commissioners exerted their authority to establish a lasting concord between the brothers, as they had as yet hardly made peace with each other."

There was a touchscreen to order (which we two idiots could barely figure out), and you could get a hamburger on a lettuce wrap. Which we both did. Bad decision. Nothing like a hot burger falling out of a cold piece of lettuce.

The entire McDonald's was set up like some kind of coffee house, with flat-screen TVs and high-tops.

Now, if they'd serve beer and wine, I'd be down wid it.

53 Couples who spent less than $1,000 were 53% less likely to divorce than couples who spent $20,000 or more. Contrary to what the wedding industry wants you to think (that the average wedding costs an astounding $30,000), more is not always better.

Could be due to their starting out their married life tens of thousands of dollars in debt. Could be that they're not intelligent enough to realize that they can't afford a 30K wedding. Could be that they're shallow and self indulgent. Nothing against an expensive wedding if you can afford it, but a lot of these people can't afford it and are spending this money on top of student loans and whatnot.

56 I'm repeating myself, but here goes anyway.

What would pacify the BLM crown is to institute the "Martins" or the "Kings" awards as a replacement for the "Oscars". The rules for winning a "Martin" are that although any entertainment figure can be nominated, the judges can only vote for a POC personality. Since the ballot is secret, only the winners will be announced, no vote totals.

Presto, another divide healed!

Note that it might be even better if the name of the award was the "Hussein" as more inclusive.

74 ghost. the reports I've read sound so frightening. A mob of rapists invades what had been a fairly safe public space and wreaks havoc. The Germans and Swedes need to connect with their inner ancestors. Some rounds of now shocked to inaction bystanders waiting for police instead going berserker and offing a few raping bastards would be a good civilizing start.

Livy



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaius_Popillius_Laenas



"After receiving the submission of the inhabitants of Memphis and
of the rest of the Egyptian people, some submitting voluntarily, others
under threats, [Antiochus] marched by easy stages towards Alexandria.
After crossing the river at Eleusis, about four miles from Alexandria,
he was met by the Roman commissioners, to whom he gave a friendly
greeting and held out his hand to Popilius. Popilius, however, placed in
his hand the tablets on which was written the decree of the senate and
told him first of all to read it. After reading it through, he said he
would call his friends into council and consider what he ought to do.
Popilius, stern and imperious as ever, drew a circle round the king with
the stick he was carrying and said, "Before you step out of that circle
give me a reply to lay before the senate." For a few moments he
hesitated, astounded at such a peremptory order, and at last replied, "I
will do what the senate thinks right." Not till then did Popilius
extend his hand to the king as to a friend and ally. Antiochus evacuated
Egypt at the appointed date, and the commissioners exerted their
authority to establish a lasting concord between the brothers, as they
had as yet hardly made peace with each other."

120 That cliche bit about France being our oldest ally

LOL. France has no allies ... just countries they fuck over eventually.

France got themselves a seat on the UN Security Council by claiming that the US would need allies there ... only to turn around and play against us at almost every opportunity. France used their membership in NATO to do nothing but continually try to tear it apart from the inside and to muck up every move NATO needed to make. We finally moved the French out of NATO's military arm, but they just sat around in the political arm and opposed everything America wanted to do. Then, for some unknown and ungodly reason we let France back into full membership a just a decade ago. What a joke.

France may have been our first ally but they have not been an ally for very long. They come crawling back for their "ally" status whenever they need something. I'm ticked that we take them back.

The French have never had an ally they didn't eventually stab in the back, and almost always for some truly stupid, insignificant payout. But, anyone who is stupid enough to ally with France deserves what they get.

136 Actually they do have some idea why middle aged white women are dying more. The largest "source of death" for this cohort is "accidental poisoning" which includes drug overdoses. They're mostly blaming opioid pain meds.

Now, me, with RA, I fear they will crack down it on hard due to this, but, apparently the 50-54 cohort of middle-aged women in the South here are overdosing much more than other cohorts, and men.

"Accidental poisoning" accounted for the biggest fraction of the increase in the death rate. Respiratory illness and liver disease were the next, followed by suicide.

The drug and suicide death rate for white men in the 50-54 range increased as well, but not nearly as much as for the women.

Breaking it down by region, it worse in rural areas. Whether that is function of more time to get to the ER, or something else, I don't know.

146 Salad bars are net losers for most restaurants; huge waste and very fussy to maintain basic sanitation standards.

Shockingly, couples who eloped (just the couple at the wedding) were 12.5x more likely to end up divorced than couples who were married at a wedding with 200+ people.

Alternately, maybe people saying you shouldn't marry that person are right. Few people elope because they're supported by their family and patient enough to learn about their lover. Taking more time and seeing your potential spouse through the eyes of friends and family can save a lot of heartache.

If I want a hamburger, I go to a diner. The cost is similar and the burgers are a lot better. My particular favorite is an olive burger. It's a hamburger with a mixture of mayonnaise and sliced olives.

154 couples who eloped (just the couple at the wedding) were 12.5x more likely to end up divorced

Milady and I have always been exceptional, as opposed to being the rule, I mean.

After several years of living in sin cohabitation, we just agreed to make it official. Changed my will, and started holding ourselves forth as married, per Oklahoma common law. Our ceremony was, our lawyer treated us to lunch.

I'm not proud of it, and regret it in some ways, but we felt somewhat estranged from family at the time, relatively friendless, and had just recovered from some terrible experiences together, so, it seemed right.

And that was thirty-six years ago.

Married before we had kids, at least.

My mother-in-law, years later, said to my mother, it took her a while to realize, that isn't how most people in Oklahoma did it.

Husband told me the reason I haven't heard from our son, is partly because he came upon a gunshot yute victim, and used his battlefield expertise to keep the yute alive until the amberlamps arrived.

I'm more worried now over the war-torn neighborhood son lives in now, than when he was nearly killed in Afghanistan.

168 You would need a lot more data about this drug overdose thing. Are Southern white women more likely to overdose than women in the same age range elsewhere, or is it that they just die more from overdoses. Are more women using it in the South, and the overdose and even death rate are the same amongst the opioid-using cohort, it's just more of them in the South.

I'm sure that data is available, but it would take someone to pull it out and crank it. Maybe they have, I don't know.

Because they knew that for robbing a bank they would go to jail, but for killing someone they would get the death penalty... and sooner rather than later.

I'm not completely comfortable with the death penalty as I know some innocent people got executed. But our society is a rougher and more violent place these days... it's not all progress.

The same Cultural Marxist insanity behind #GamerGate have been increasingly, and laughingly, been trying to go after Heavy Metal. Much as with #GamerGate, the Social Justice Warriors are increasingly outing themselves as being not part of the sub-culture, but external enemies that seek to only destroy.

Posted by: t-bird at January 19, 2016 10:45 PM


I'm both impressed and horrified by the audacity of it. I mean, West could have at least LIED and said he had always liked Bowie's stuff. But to come out and admit he'd only just become familiar with his work a few days ago? It's bizarre.The dude has no clue. Or, perhaps he is trying and failing, to walk a line between publicity and maintaining "urban cred"?

No idea why she endorsed him and I don't really care. She's free to endorse whoever. Endorsements have never really held much weight with me.

What I'm tired of with Palin (and I was a vehement, full throated, Palin supporter) is the juvenile bullshit she and Bristol pull.

Someone says something even slightly critical of Sarah, Bristol runs to her blog and screams about that person and how awful they are and how unloyal they are. (Sidenote: Bitch, I don't owe your mother a fucking thing. Certainly not my loyalty.) Person Bristol screams about fires back. Sometimes harshly, sometimes politely. Then here comes Sarah with her Mama Grizzly act.

It's fucking tiresome.

Bristol may not act it, but she's a fucking adult. (SWIDT) Act like it. She's fully capable of making her own decisions, speaking her own mind, and owning both of those things.

275 Regarding the Germans and weapons availability, it still comes down to having the will to harm, injure, hurt, and/or kill those who oppose you.

First, it is ridiculous to think Frauleins will ward or or fight off mobs of "yutes". Not with a spray or a baton or even a knife. The best she could hope for is to take one with her before she goes.

It is going to come down to soccer hooligans armed with whatever they can get their hands on, beating these thugs where they find them, in such a manner as to send a message. If that sounds like Kristalnacht or some neo-nazi type of activity, that would possibly explain why it hasn't happened yet.

The will to fight back has to over-ride the law, and especially the PC attitude which got them into the situation they now face.

Today, sure. The problem is people got in the habit of thinking paying *whatever* for insurance meant they'd take car of you in any circumstance, and in healthcare it mutated into little more than a billing service.

But the spreading of specific risk *voluntarily*, which is what insurance ought to be, is surely preferable to the socialist urge people will otherwise follow.

The more I think about it, the more I realize that the most disturbing thing about these people isn't that they're frivolous idiots chasing frivolity, but that they're so deadly serious about it, and enforcing it upon the rest of the world.

However, as sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, and we can be whatever we want without objective reality getting a say in it, then I once again reiterate my claim: I am the Emperor of the Universe by divine right. I even have my special pronouns. Your majesty, his majesty, etc.

The way I figure, once it starts catching on that the best special snowflake title has been called, they'll lose interest. Or I get to rule crazy town. Either way, win/win.

Oh, and by Imperial decree, gender is merely a linguistic contrivance to describe people based on biological sex. There are only two of those, therefore there are only two genders. Suck it, gender weirdos. Also, still Emperor.

Here's a secret. We never really were conservatives. The political language in this country has been stood on its head. The right wing were originally the Tories, the Royalists, and every other asshole that fought for unlimited central power. These were the conservatives. The left wing were all of those crazy liberals, with their ideas about natural rights and the rule of law.

It has now been perfectly inverted. Our left wing fights for the all-powerful collective and the enslavement of the individual to it, and our right wing fights for individual rights. When it comes to political vocabulary, this country talks like a fag and its shit is all retarded.

Let them keep the conservative label, it more properly belongs to the Ryans and Boehners of the world than to us. And besides, the dishonor they've brought to the brand is something we'd never wash off of it.

Per their counting, we've had three such Crises. The Revolution, the Civil War, and Depression/WWII. And we're right on schedule for another one. I must say, it's going remarkably like they predicted. They had no idea what it would be, had some ideas (of which economic dislocation was one), but the script is going according to their theory.

385 Time to pack up the tablet and change locations and IPs, but before I do, here's a comment I left on another forum earlier tonight. Of course, on that forum, I could link to the tweets, but I'm too lazy to bit.ly them for Pixy tonight:



I don't get thrills (up my leg or otherwise) as a rule, especially about matters political, but I genuinely got a thrill years ago when I ran across a photo, at that biker's rally in DC I think, of Sarah Palin shaking hands with Allen West. It was just an electric moment, and it was really about then I started taking politics seriously again.

Some of "the thrill is gone" on both those folks. West for his support of the black farmers scam and weak walk-back of it. And Palin, well, I just wish she hadn't chosen between Cruz and Trump, really. Bristol had some snark in response to Rick Tyler's statement, and Sarah, sad to say, linking to Bristol, chimed in with "Is THIS Why People Don't like Cruz?" but at least Cruz himself stayed classy:

"I love @SarahPalinUSA Without her support, I wouldn't be in the Senate. Regardless of what she does in 2016, I will always be a big fan."

I'm not a big fan of anybody - wish we could merge the better parts of Trump and Cruz and cull the worse parts, but I'll hold my nose and vote GOP - again - because, anyone but those commies.

God bless and save the USA.

So, Sarah Palin's son has now been arrested for domestic abuse. And that just about does it for me.

I have defended the Palins through thick and thin since 2008, but I have now had it

The Palins need to go away. Now.

Sorry if I sound like a concern troll, but Sarah is not a conservative (she's a populist, like Trump), and her kids are running around wild. Yes, she was cruelly and unfairly savaged by the media, but she's done little since then to prove them wrong, and her contributions to the political discourse have been extremely meager.

Daughter Bristol will soon be the mama of 3 children from 3 different fathers.Yeah, that shows stability.

It's like they're morphing into the low-life hillbillies the snotty left has accused them of being. Or maybe they always were. Responsibly handling sudden fame and publicity is a tough job, and it's no shame if you're not up to it. But have the sense to get out of the limelight, fer petessake, and deal with your family problems.

So can we all just ignore the Palin family now?

It's becoming obvious here that the Ruling Class is very protective of the muzzie refujihadis not only because they believe that the "angry white men" are a much larger threat to their power, it's also that they're COUNTING on the rapeugees to help consolidate their power.

That's why feminists and gays will stand with the muzzies and hush up crimes they commit. It's not about protecting women and gays, it's about the power coalition.

425 I actually feel pretty badly for Ted Cruz today. So much shit, and a lot of it is total crap.

Personally I think Cruz would lose a general election. He's kind of goofy looking and his voice isn't the best. His wife's ties to Goldman Sachs will kill him if he gets far enough. Not saying it's right, but it is what it is in this environment.

Sarah kind of fucked him over big time. That's a shame. I really like Palin but it's been clear for a number of years that she's merely cashing in on her fame. Like I said in an earlier thread I sort of don't blame her with her big family and the fact that she's got a Down's kid who needs to be taken care of after her and Todd are gone. But at the same time trashing a guy you once supported is pretty shitty. Especially considering he didn't do anything bad to her.

Um, Mad Max is far superior to Fast and Furious. I personally like that they are considering mainstream picks and not just high-brow stuff. My biggest complaint is they always go for the high-brow.

I would argue that it takes as much talent, if not more, to make some of the blockbuster movies. You have to meet or exceed huge expectations. You have to make a film that looks flawless in 2D, but doesn't look like complete garbage in 3D (in some cases). There's more action. There's more editing. Special effects have to be absolutely perfect. And so on and so forth.

Many have already said they'd back Hillary over Trump, and they hate Cruz just as much. The only reason they're even pretending to cozy up to him a little bit is to try to deny Trump the nomination, or split the anti-establishments to angle for a brokered convention.

546 As much as I like Cruz, despite the Goldman Sachs
connection and the time he dropped the ball on TPP, he simply wouldn't
win the general election. The GOPe would back Hillary over him. Many
have already said they'd back Hillary over Trump, and they hate Cruz
just as much. The only reason they're even pretending to cozy up to him a
little bit is to try to deny Trump the nomination, or split the
anti-establishments to angle for a brokered convention.


Posted by: Cato the Rebel Without a Party at January 20, 2016 12:09 AM (HalrA)

I am just not buying that. Cruz has very good favorables despite his Senate colleagues of the Dem and RINO variety hating him. That is only like 90 guys and they would be hard pressed to vote enough times that it cost him the election.

His supporters are not, in fact, running for office. His detractors ( hands you a big ole mirror) whing as much as anyone during a primary cycle, some a lot more than most (hands that mirror back).

I have not seen that for the most part. What I see is Trump supporters using absolutely false talking points and abusive language to run down Cruz. Then when someone points out their facts aren't right, they get more and more combative and ugly until the other person can't take it anymore and either fires back or walks away. I don't go to Breitbart right now because of their behavior.

618 The way I heard the timeline, it was the Cruz campaign that fired the first shot one the rumor that Palin was going to endorse Trump. Rick Tyler, a Cruz campaign spokesman, said "It would be a blow to Palin..." and paraphrasing, Palin use to be good troop for the Cause and she now supports who Trump supports partial birth abortion, and progressive on sanctity of marriage.

That prompted Bristol to trash him. It was even officially confirmed that she was going to endorse after that exchange.

Again, had Palin endorsed Cruz, it would've been Trump and his people who would've ripped into her like a Muzzie on a German girl, and Cruz and his supporters praising her as the greatest thing ever.

It's simple. The emotions are running amok. Both freaking sides. All sides.

He and his wife are pissed because he did the movie "Concussion" about the evils of football, and he did not receive a nomination for it. This was his shot at an Oscar he felt, and he didn't get it. He plays an African doctor that links playing football with concussions, and since concussions in football is the BIG thing these days, it seemed to be a shoo-in.

Not so fast there bucky. You know who controls the movie industry? Fox, Universal, and Disney. Do you know that almost all of Disney's movies' box office grosses will only amount to about 2 months of the income that ESPN will bring in. Guess why people want ESPN? That's right, football. Columbia Pictures, a division of Sony, thought that they could take on the 800lb entertainment gorilla known as football, and football let them know, not today.

Thus, the butthurt from Hollywood. But let's face it, Smith would have never won the award because the dude playing a chick in "The Danish Girl" will win it. No way anyone else is winning it this year. So, Hollywood gets to nominate DiCaprio, Bryan Cranston, Matt Damon!, and Fasbender to up their acting resumes.

636 SMFH.

First, good evening, ma'am.

I don't get all fired up about a given politician.

But I do get all fired up about the future, such as it is, of our Nation.

Sad fact is though, that certain politicians bode great ill for our Nation, yet their fervent supporters are legion, and unwelcome to reason, discourse or argument.

They're very much a "my way or the highway" crowd, and they're the ripe fodder upon which the populist feasts.

Being adverse to both Leninism and Lemmingism, when see large crowds of overly-enthusiastic people all moving en-masse, as one and with but one thought in mind, my instinctive reaction is to make haste away from said crowd at all possible speed.

Crowds are but formative mobs, and mobs are never more than one shout away from violence, mayhem, burning and bloodshed.

The sight of thousands of glazed-eyed, joy-faced, slack jawed acolytes, gazing lovingly upon a new White Knight on Horseback, sounds many loud Klaxons of warning to my mind and gut.

This will get out of hand, and.....well..... Teh Horde knows the rest of that one, don'tcha!

first shot one the rumor that Palin was going to endorse Trump. Rick
Tyler, a Cruz campaign spokesman, said "It would be a blow to Palin..."
and paraphrasing, Palin use to be good troop for the Cause and she now
supports who Trump supports partial birth abortion, and progressive on
sanctity of marriage.

Posted by: publius (not Breitbart publius) at January 20, 2016 12:50 AM (dvuhZ)




That was not a shot at Palin. That was a shot at Trump on his past positions but not on his person. If Trump (or Palin) want to go after Cruz on his positions, I would have no problem with that. But Trump doesn't (or maybe can't) do that and instead chooses to be personally insulting... and Palin joined right in.


I expect it, and have even enjoyed it when directed against the other side, from Trump. Palin should have had more class as Cruz did in answering her really shitty tweet.

-----------------
You will want two thing in abundance. Time and patience. (Maybe 3 if you're a drinker)
Does she know sit and stay yet?
Use the choke chain (collar). Take her for walks. If she tries to take control, pull back, command "sit. Stay." Do this 5,782 times if necessary.
It may take an hour to walk 200 feet, but she'll catch on. YOU are the Alpha.

I think it took me about a month to get Tucker to walk with me. I rarely walk him anymore (it's friggin' cold out there! Besides, he has a damn acre all to himself), but when I do, I don't hold a leash. I put one on him, but let him drag it.
I let him get a little ways (30 feet?), then call him back. Latest thing is training him to stop at the curb when we cross the street. Weird, but it's working - if I take him across the street to visit, we stop at the curb, then, on command, go. Last two times he got to the street in front of me, stopped & looked back at me.

Again, it'll take a lot of time and patience, but it is SO worth it. Especially when I see my neighbors' retarded dogs.

Plus Smith had a really bad Nigerian accent and also, no duh!?! on the concussion front. That is like studying water and expecting some kind of prize when you present your findings that it is wet. Large men ramming into each other, sometimes head first, is going to cause head injuries including concussions.

Most Statham movies are this: He is a guy who performs a specialized illegal service (such as transporting sketchy goods, hit man who takes out bad dudes). Other than this, he has a code of honor and does not believe in committing any other crimes/is a saintly guy (donating his money to nuns, etc.). He ends up getting mixed up with criminals who have no code of honor and has to overcome/kill them and save himself and some innocent. This way his character gets to be both bad and good.

Question: my puppy is 7 months old and 90lbs and nearly stronger than
me. She pulls so bad on the leash. I've tried a pinch collar and just
bought a gentle leader that she hated. It seemed to work but she ate
through it. Any advice?

Posted by: L, Elle

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

You will want two thing in abundance. Time and patience. (Maybe 3 if you're a drinker)

Does she know sit and stay yet?

Use the choke chain (collar). Take her for walks. If she tries to
take control, pull back, command "sit. Stay." Do this 5,782 times if
necessary.

It may take an hour to walk 200 feet, but she'll catch on. YOU are the Alpha.



I think it took me about a month to get Tucker to walk with me. I
rarely walk him anymore (it's friggin' cold out there! Besides, he has a
damn acre all to himself), but when I do, I don't hold a leash. I put
one on him, but let him drag it.

I let him get a little ways (30 feet?), then call him back. Latest
thing is training him to stop at the curb when we cross the street.
Weird, but it's working - if I take him across the street to visit, we
stop at the curb, then, on command, go. Last two times he got to the
street in front of me, stopped looked back at me.



Again, it'll take a lot of time and patience, but it is SO worth it. Especially when I see my neighbors' retarded dogs.

I always use the example of not knowing a person's name but knowing her as "Kati's mom" for years and years to illustrate my weird mind-block for people's names. But Kati, a white Lab, impressed the crap out of me for walking in the 'burbs.

She'd wander across yards, through houses, socialize with her canine and human friends, and go everywhere....until she came to a curb, where she'd plunk her butt down until she got clearance to cross. One of the dogs of my childhood was killed in the road; another was crippled.....I was very favorably impressed by the discipline this dog showed.

So what? Brat is a good strong conservative who ran purely on the ideals in the Republican Creed but HE is not the main reason he won. Every Tea Party group and unaffiliated person who chose to change their representation are the main reason. They worked their butts off walking door to door to door and convinced their friends and family to do the same. Dave Brat's campaign spent right around $125,000 to win the nomination... $125,000 and thousands and thousand of hours of volunteer time donated by people who were sick of hearing the word "electable"instead of "principled" and did something about it against several million dollars and the inevitability of the second most powerful Republican in the House.

The movie wasn't nominated for best pic, but Cate Blanchett for best actress, Rooney Mara for supporting actress were nominated which seems to be the way the lesbian movies win. Plus, it is up for costumes, cinematography, music original score, and writing adapted screenplay. So 6 nominations.

719 As of about five minutes ago, my crystal ball finally came into perfect focus, and I can now see the future clearly. And in the future, I see just two words:

President Trump.

Although this insight is not unique to me, obviously, three recent developments today made me realize he is inevitable. They are (in ascending order of importance):

3. Palin joins team Trump. It not really her endorsement that matters, but rather her upcoming participation on the campaign trail. Love her or hate her, you can't deny she is a brilliant rabble-rouser and speech-giver, and wherever she goes huge crowds show up to see her. Having Trump and Palin BOTH crisscrossing the country will be "blanketing the zone" with super-celebrities which no other candidate can even begin to match. There will be no oxygen for any other campaign.

2. Sanders is now crushing Clinton in both NH and IA, and suddenly has a serious chance to actually win. He is the communist mirror image of Trump -- outsider populist. But if he actually gets the nomination, he will lose catastrophically in any general election involving real Americans, since his entire life is one long treasonous waltz down Marxism Lane, with enough skeletons in enough closets to ruin the career of even a decent person. But if Clinton manages to fend him off, she will be so damaged, even within her own party's ranks, that she will limp to November and get crushed.

1. The whole "New York Values" kerfuffle was so incredibly brilliant by both Cruz and Trump it was as if they had choreographed it ahead of time. Why? Because it locked down the general election rural/southern vote for Cruz, but more significantly it locked down the general election New York vote for Trump, since he so vigorously came to NY's defense and thereby made everyone in the city love him even more. After some searching I found out that no polling company has even done a general-election poll question in NY state yet, because the state is considered so solid Dem that it's be a waste of money to poll it. But I am now convinced that the theory I floated a few months ago is going to come true: Trump is already way ahead in NY over Clinton or Sanders head-to-head, will win NY state in the general election. And if he does, the election is simply over. That state alone, plus all the "gimme" GOP states, puts him over the top. Doesn't even need any of the battleground states. The Dems need NY and Calif just for starters in any electoral college count; if they lose either, they face a Mondale-level situation.

Trump is a native son of NY. He has 99+% name recognition there. And now he's the state's biggest defender. Hillary can't touch that.

Hence:

President Trump.

751 The Fed rate hike pretty much acclerated the decline in oil prices, or deepened the bottom. You can look at a chart. After the rate hike, oil and stocks dropped a bit, then turned back up to where they were, then started steadily dropping ever since.

There's not much of a real economy outside the Fed's games, and the rate hiked ended that party. They were getting high on their own supply of phony economic recovery numbers, hiked it, and pricked the bubble.

QE5 is just around the corner, with another massive expansion of the balance sheet, I'm sure.

It won't do them any good even if they try more pumping. The regulatory environment is such that people are reluctant to invest in... anything. So the pumped money will just sit there in banks until the Feds decide to do the unthinkable thing they have been flirting with and go explicitly negative with interest rates.

If Cruz can win Iowa after this, it would be a HUGE blow to Trumps patina of invincibility. Everyone I saw crowing about what a huge get this was for Trump was already a Trump supporter. Cruz still has the best ground game in Iowa, and that matters in a caucus state. It matters a lot.

The problem is you run into diminishing returns long enough and you results go negative. The Keynesians are hopeless, but some folks at the Fed at least understand the math of it.

I suppose it's anyone's guess what people do when there are no actual options, but I think the folks at the Fed ultimately stop because preserving their institution (and thus their power) is soon to be in play. It's one thing for folks to be mad at them over "raising rates too early" and causing a double, triple, or whatever dip.

It's an entirely different thing for them to flood the market with money and have everything continue to collapse. Or worse, print so much that they (eventually, should the economy ever manage to improve) destroy the dollar and the idea of fiat currency entirely.

If we'd allowed the rest in 2008, it would been about 20% or so, another Great Depression level. The longer they play the games, the worse that hit becomes.

IOW, let the losses be realized, it be acknowledged that all the piles of public and private sector debt are worthless piles of crap that can never be repaid, and the resulting debt deflation take place. Much weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth.

796 789: Yes, the Wiemar guys, at least the top bankers of the day, knew that wanton money printing caused runaway inflation. I've read a lot about it, can't remember a lot, but it was debunking the argument they didn't know.

Rudolf von Havenstein was the head of the bank. He was a patriotic German trying to do the best for his country. He was also Jewish, and that fueled some of the anti-Semitism. Some of it. Those Jew bankers have ruined us.

IIRC, he got started monetizing German WWI debt. Kaiser said they would soon be victorious, and von Havenstein did his patriotic duty for the war effort.

It didn't do anything much for a long time. I remember seeing a timeline showing the price level vs the amount of printing they'd done. It just sort of sat there for years, then took off like a wild fire, hell H2 and O2 and a spark.

In hyperinflation, the rate of inflation is itself an exponential. IOW, the price level goes as e^(e^at). Meaning, the log of that, the inflation rate is an exponential curve itself.

817 We all remember Wiemar, but it was actually "only" the fourth highest hyperinflation in history. Number 1 is still Hungary, 1946.

Think of the government playing central bank, well as we think of it today. The govt was in charge of printing. It tried to stimulate. It hired people directly, and even just gave people wads of freshly printed cash at will.

Before it was over, the inflation rate peaked at 150,000% per day. IOW, prices increased by a factor of 1500 every damn day. Something that cost x at the start of the day cost 1500x at the end of the day. The money supply reach *septillions* of the currency unit.

At one point, they just started printing money that was automatically indexed to inflation somehow. It had however many zeros it needed at any given moment when issued. The printers couldn't keep with the change in inflation.

Real wages dropped 80% over the hyperfinflation, IIRC.

The Hungarian pengo was the official unit of currency between 1927, when it replaced the korona, and 1946 -- when it was replaced by the forint. In the meantime, it managed to rack up an amazing level of inflation and circulated banknotes up to 100 quintillion pengo (one sextillion pengo notes were produced but never used).

When the forint replaced the pengo, it was introduced at an exchange rate of 400 octillion pengos per forint.

This, of course, was a great contribution towards widespread familiarity with the nomenclature of large numbers.

I always tell people who are training their dogs to think in dog time: Dogs don't wear wristwatches. Being in a hurry with a dog just doesn't work. Some dogs pick up things quicker than others, but some things take dog time. And no anger or frustration can be shown. Dogs are very good at sensing emotion. One is the boss of their dog so one should act like it, not act like their cruel tyrant boss that everyone and his brother hates.

835 #728

About thirteen years ago, IIRC, there was an E3 press event for the Xbox. The big reveal was that Microsoft and EA had come to an agreement over online multiplayer, meaning EA had come to the realization for the umpteenth time that console companies like to run their own show and weren't going to let EA install their own network components and effectively create their own EA branded environment, including purchases that didn't give Microsoft a piece of the action. (The whole point of doing a game console is the house always wins.)

This was particularly meaningful for EA's sports line, which they'd been withholding from release on Xbox, despite their internal testing showing it would let them overcome a lot of the PS2's limitations. To celebrate this in front of the press EA trotted out a bunch of big name players who were active in endorsing the game line. Among them, appearing in a historical mode of the boxing game, was Muhammed Ali. Or what was left of him. The face was recognizable but the tiny shrunken and trembling man was a shocking sight. The NFL stars to each side of him were both visibly worried he might collapse and ready to grab his arms.

Ali got a big standing O of the night but the question in everybody's mind was why anyone would want to do this stuff for real.

True story. I had a dog as a kid. Sweet thing and well behaved (thanks to constant repetition early on). Anyway, back in the early '80s, I was visiting a downstairs neighbor in my building. There were about 6 of us guys, drinking and partying. Jerry had a little Schnauzer, a real yapper. He was in the bedroom (about 5-10 feet from us) yapping away so loud we couldn't hear each other talk. Jerry was about to get up and go off on Oscar, yelling at him, etc. (but not hitting him). I said calmly, 'I've got this.' I was sitting in a chair looking directly into the bedroom and at Oscar. I snapped my fingers, extending the index finger, as I stood up, saying firmly, 'Hey!' Oscar looked at me, shut up, and sat down. Once he sat down, I sat down, too. It was quiet. Everybody was stunned with Jerry asking me, 'What did you do?' I merely stated, 'I speak dog.' A few minutes later, Oscar came out and made the rounds, sniffing people. Eventually he ended up sitting right next to, all quiet and calm. I gave him lots of affection for that.

I've always communicated with dogs quite well, even without using my voice.

897 My wife once went to a conference in Capetown. She had a driver armed with an Uzi. He advised her to keep things like her handbag out of sight.

Mind you, that was a couple of years ago. I'm sure things are much better now.

925 My roommate and I bought a kitten when we were 3 sheets to the wind and smuggled it into our apartment in a box. The kitteh shit in the box, so we had to give her a bath. Thea was little then. It still was not fun.

The funny thing was that she loved to sit in the kitchen sink with water dripping on her head. That was great, for some reason. She just didn't want her whole body to be wet.
