Prisoners, they don't make them as tough as they use to.

The TDCJ, which runs Texas prisons and houses more than 146,000 inmates, is currently in the middle of litigation over what inmates and advocates have said is deadly heat in its facilities. But Texas is not the only state facing such lawsuits. Louisiana is defending its refusal to install air conditioning on death row, while prisons and jails across the country have been ordered by courts to address their sweltering temperatures and extend protections to inmates, particularly the ill and elderly.

If stifling heat in prison is bad for you. Then hot sex is good for you. Right?


How to woo a chic, do's and don'ts from 1936.

80 years ago a book entitled 'How to Make Love' was published, giving men tips on how to woo a woman. Indy1000 has taken a look, for tips, and to see how outdated it seems in 2016.

Being "Right" or "Far-Right" has so many advantages.

Tonight's ONT has been brought to you by Song Covers.

53 Hey everybody.

And how many children have been deserted by their baby daddies today, compared to 1936?

nerdygirl, I'm not saying you're wrong. There's been a lot of moral breakdown in America (and elsewhere), everywhere, since 1936. OMG.

Having said that though... I've often wondered how much we *really* know about American society pre-1970 or so. Before then, it seems journalists were not only overall less political, but more focused on the "big stories" and big events; I don't think there was nearly as much societal/sociological navel-gazing, or journalists asking "what's the divorce rate look like? What's happening to kids who get abandoned by their dads?"

On top of which, they had their systems to deal with these things and they were largely accepted and uncontroversial. Society accepted that kids with bad or absent parents ended up in orphanages or group homes, or ended up with other relatives; it was accepted that "just a few" women and men get divorced, and a lot of people never admitted it if they were divorced; and topics such as alcoholism, drug addiction, and of course things like homosexuality (or what they would have called "deviant sexuality" or worse) were taboo to both talk and write about.

I also got a bit of an education about this back when I was working in a public mental institution; before 1970, you could be institutionalized for, among other things, being a drug addict or being gay. It wasn't something families *or* the media of the time talked about; it was too controversial and, again, "taboo" of a subject. Nobody wanted to drop their circulation numbers especially, with regard to the leading newspapers and magazines (how most people got their news pre-TV and radio).

Anyway, just wanted to throw that out there. Just because there's a lot of stuff the media didn't report pre-1970, doesn't mean it wasn't out there; and again, that's NOT the same thing as saying the American family was always in as advanced a state of decay as it is now, alas.

Of course. But there's a lot to be said for suppressing anti-social tendencies, by which I mean things that tend to undermine the stability of society. Nowadays we mainstream them, if we're not exalting them.

People farted then, too, but everyone acted as though they were unaware of that fact. Now we're expected to comment favorably on the fragrance and musicality of such.

A relative came and got him but not his brothers because they used him as a field hand and he could work and made him sleep in a corn crib. Finally a cousin came to visit and was appalled by his living conditions and took him with her. As soon as he could he joined the Navy became an electrician.

Thier was talk that one brother ran off to Philly during Proabition and you didn't ask him what he did to survive.

103 Sure people had extramartial and premartial affairs and got divorced in 1936. It's just that there were consequences if word got out and people who violated social mores took that risk. Having an adulterous affair could cost you your reputation and career. It was risky.

Now it's not. What's a healthier society - one that frowns upon having kids out of wedlock and divorce and adultery or one that says "meh. whatever."

104 Farts? The Japanese have a religious fable built around farts. An old man was farming and had nothing to eat, he was Buddhist but there was this songbird. He killed the bird, cooked it, ate everything but the bones, and then gave the little bird a proper burial while asking Buddha to forgive him for eating meat. Well then he started to fart farts that said words. At first everyone would laugh at the old farmer until a traveling Buddhist priest heard one of the farts and declared them holy farts because the words from the fart were praising Buddha.

Anyway, just wanted to throw that out there. Just because there's a lot of stuff the media didn't report pre-1970, doesn't mean it wasn't out there; and again, that's NOT the same thing as saying the American family was always in as advanced a state of decay as it is now, alas.


I just found out that my dad (born in 1934) was a (full term) "preemie" born 6 months after my grandparents were married. Uh-huh, guess we all know what happened there. Granddad married grandma though, and they stayed married for 60 year. Seems better to me.

160 I looked it up. That pre-Code Stanwyck film was "Baby Face", 1933. Barbara played a woman who used sex to advance herself.

SHe was the daughter of a bootlegger during Prohibition and ran a speakeasy. He'd been whoring her out since she was a teenager for money. He father gets killed when his still explodes, and the only man she trusts advises her to start using men, rather than letting them use her.

It was as dark as anything produced today, and was basically an R-rated movie by today's standards.

Hint, they knew as much about sex and the use and abuse of it as any today. Further hint. Humanity has always known this.

Even the guilty are only sent to prison to separate them from society and to take their freedom as punishment. It's not suppose to be a sentence of unspeakable cruelty.

To lock someone who's obviously mentally unwell in a cage, and leave her their after she begs for water, after she defecates herself, and after she passes out, requires a callousness to life that calls for them, too, to be separated from society.

Their aren't sent to prison just to separate them from society, and taking their freedom isn't the whole of their punishment. That's why there used to be sentences of hard labor and why there are death penalties.

Further, prisoners can legally become slaves of the state. Slavery was not abolished. It was only reserved as punishment for crimes.

These prisoners were not put into the cages just for fun. They did stuff to end up there. The articles mentions prisoners refusing to return to their cells. That's life.

As to this particular case, she was just waiting to be transported. Blame the hospital for not picking her up. 4 hours in the sun in 107 temps is not a big deal, anyway.

205 Some of you may be interested in "The Code", the censorship code of American movies. It started in earnest in 1934.

The Supreme Court ruled in 1915 that free speech did not apply to motion pictures. Yes, you read that right. States started setting up censorship boards. NY was the first state to do so, I think.

Anyway, Hollywood adopted the Motion Picture Production Code to stave off government censorship.

That SC ruling has since been overturned, of course.

Films before the Code, which were full of sex (and these sold well, as it always does, but it fired up a backlash), drew the ire of politicians and religious leaders.

And it wasn't so much the sex. They potrayed politicians as bumbling corrupt idiots, religious leaders as hypocrites and all that. They didn't like that.

Heat stroke is not a fun thing to experience, ask me how I know?

If he was an accessory both before and after the fact, doesn't that put him under the felony murder statute? In that co-conspirators to a criminal enterprise share the guilt if a murder takes place.


Perhaps the guy was technically guilty of felony murder, but was mis-charged in the original trial.

240 Some people know I have been attending the Eastern Orthodox Church (This one is of the Russian variety) when i get chance. It is the most "high church" service i have ever attended. and I've been to high Episcopalian and Anglican services The priest must wear out his arm from all the censing (Is that the proper word?) he does. The liturgy is mostly sung-between the choir and the priest. It is very lovely although going to from a Protestant service to an Eastern Orthodox one is like going to another culture. It is a very conservative church. They don't even have girls as altar servers.

At any rate, some nice woman in the church sends out the daily prayers and liturgy readings. I try to read up on them beforehand. if I can I couldn't go to the Vespers service this Saturday, but one of the people they were remembering was Blessed John "The Hairy" Fool for Christ at Rostov (1580) I guess I'm easily amused, but I laughed so hard at the name and his picture as an icon (He is indeed very hairy) that my husband came out to ask me what i was laughing about.

One of the interesting things is that the liturgy is so very formal and yet they have these little down to earth rather touching names for their holy people.

260 Well the state can't prove now if he set up the robbery. It was stated as the state thinks he *knew* the robbery would happen. At the start of the segment 60 minutes said he admitted he sold some of the stolen jewelry if I heard right. The actual robber that killed the jeweler confessed decades later. The state prosecutor did not say anything about accessory but for me reading between the lines it is felony accessory to the robbery where the jeweler was killed.

262 60 minutes aired or replayed a sob story about a guy who was convicted of a murder and later cleared but spent 30 years on death row in LA (state). 60 minutes danced around the fact - but the state is refusing to give him compensation for wrongful imprisonment because he was an accessory before and after the fact to the robbery where the victim was killed; if I read between the lines correctly.
I know I'm supposed to be outraged on behalf of the poor *innocent* prisoner but I just can't make myself feel it. I'm just like. "damn you set up the robbery, you took part of the loot, you are not fully innocent and I don't care if the years on death row was a much harsher sentence than you would have gotten if only convicted of the accessory stuff.

Yes, some innocent (for certain values of "innocent") people may get caught up in the Maricopa County justice system and have a bad time of it.


Guess what? Truly innocent people every single day suffer death, injury, bereavement, or financial loss at the hands of criminals, many of which eventually wind up in Sheriff Joe's hospitality centers.


I have a house in Pinal County, not even a mile from the Maricopa County line. It got burgled, and I lost hundreds of dollars' worth of tools. If the shitbird who did it (and I have a pretty good idea of his I.D.) were to wind up dead of heat stroke in a Maricopa County jail, I would shed nary a tear about his cruel fate.

Assuming that is you, Chi, yes you should srsly consider taking up dog training, especially if you do it one on one instead of with a group. That was the sole reason I picked mine. She insisted that she come to my house to do all the training bc it's my puppie's territory. Once we got good at that, we met off my property.

Just my opinion, but all the group classes don't seem to be effective. All the advice I have gotten from those of you that are master dog trainers matches what my own trainer has taught me.

It requires a lot of patience with the owners though. My get and trainer have told enough stories about how frequent it is that owners defend spoiling their dogs and are scared of traumatizing the dog if they are firm and strict. I'm so guilty of that but at least I know it.

Our pastor's oldest daughter is a nurse at one of the Dallas county jails. They're actually nice compared to the state prisons but she still has a broken heart over what many prisoners endure, especially sexual violations. She's a law and order conservative, too, not a liberal softie.

You're very right that almost all of us could be put away in prison for a very long time if someone really wanted to punish us. Think of all the times the left has used the legal system against conservatives like Rick Perry, Tom Delay, and the folks who went undercover to film Planned Parenthood.

341 I realize this may be a sensitive topic but here's my take. I thin people who are unhappy with the politics in the RCC should perhaps consider Eastern Orthodoxy. They were all part of one church at one time. The breakup was called "The Great Schism" and happened many centuries ago. They don't have a single authority figure such as a Pope and don't believe in Papal infallibility. So many things theologically are very close to the RCC and they have a very high view of marriage and the sacredness of life.

That's because we have obscured the distinction between offenses that are mala in se and mala prohibida (hope I got that second one right). The first category are crimes that are intrinsically bad, like murder and robbery. The second are administrative "crimes"; things that are only illegal because some legislature declared them to be.

That's interesting. What I read is that he and Eddie fought over the direction of the music. Eddie wanted more of a sound that would appeal to a broader audience and that's where the synthed up music started but Roth wanted to stick with the rock sound of their early music. Eddie is a control freak and got the last say in everything. It makes sense that once Dave realized he could make it on his own, he left.

383 Time for a

Politicized (but delicious) Pumpkin Stew Recipe

Tonight was "use up whatever's in the fridge to make a dinner" night, so having assessed what I have on hand, I decided to make a pumpkin stew.

I have been growing some pumpkins on a vine in my yard, but one of the pumpkins kind of "died" on the vine somewhat prematurely, and was a bit yellowish and started to deflate and obviously was never going to reach full maturity. So I harvested it anyway and stuck it in the fridge., and thought I'd give it a chance as food.

So here's what I did, along with the costs of each ingredient:

Fried an onion (6¢ and a home-grown zucchini (0¢ and a mildly hot pepper (about 8¢ in a pan until they really got overly browned (on purpose). Then put some water (essentially 0¢ directly into the blackened pan and added the cubed and skinned pumpkin. Heat to boiling, start to simmer, then add in a sliced carrot (maybe 5¢ and some fresh pole beans from my garden (0¢. Finally, add in a can of diced tomatoes (59¢ and a handful of pitiful cherry tomatoes from the garden that also didn't mature properly (0¢. In a separate little pan, fry up the coup de grace, some "soyrizo" -- a chorizo made with soy protein instead of meat (it's really really good from a vegetarian's perspective) -- I used about 1/6 of a $1.99 package, or 33¢ worth. When it's really super-fried, put it into the stew. Simmer for about 30 more minutes at least so the flavors blend. Then, another key -- take it off the heat and let it cool down for at least 15 minutes.

Enough to feed, basically, FOUR people. And all concurred with my assessment, that it was the most delicious pumpkin stew anyone had ever tasted!

Also: Super-healthy.

Total cooking time: 60 minutes.

And finally, the political part --

Total cost: $1.11.

(And more than half of that was a random can of diced tomatoes I had on the shelf, for which with a bit more effort I could have substituted some more of my own tomatoes. Without the can, it would have been 52¢ total.)

Conclusion: If you put the effort in to do some home cooking, you COULD quite easily feed your entire family with healthy and delicious and copious food for far less than the amount the average welfare recipient gets every month. I'm not on food stamps, obviously, but whenever I see the annual ritual of Democratic politicians playacting like it's impossible to live on the food stamp allowance, I just know that it's all bullshit.

Home-cooking skills are one of the keys to ending "poverty." In the "old days," folks with very little, money-wise, could still eat quite well. But such skills have almost completely disappeared from the average poor American household.

Puddleglum: I've lived right next to a subway station for years... Doesn't bother me at all.

Always liked the scene in Blues Bros where they go to the apartment right by the El tracks. Initially insane-making noise as the trains pass by constantly, it becomes kind of soothing... kind of.

Out here at our place, the tracks are a little over a half mile away. Perfect for enjoying the whistling and rumbling, but not so loud and close as to be annoying.

391 Zombie, in 1989 the price for a cheap loaf of bread went to $0.50 a loaf and I swore I would never pay that price for a loaf of bread again (I am a prophet, I think)

I learned to make bread, I think I paid today $0.30 a pound for flour (in 50lb quantities), the yeast I buy in bulk and I could go the sourdough route if I wanted to.
Once upon a time, being a good baker or a good cook was a mark of distinction

I also do a lot of cooking because I enjoy it and it is cheaper to buy the fixings and do it myself, and I like learning.

I have people ask me all the time why I cook this way. They usually eat what I bring, too.

397 There's a very strange auditory condition where I live:
Although I am about THREE MILES from the nearest train tracks, when the trains go by at night, under the correct atmospheric conditions, I can hear them extremely distinctly, as if they were right outside my window -- I can hear each wheel clickety-clack as they pass over the welded joints, etc. But, because it's three miles away, it's all very distant and quiet and attenuated. Yet still crisply clear.

Meanwhile, in the intervening three miles, there is an entire urban landscape filled with car crashes and gunshots and frat parties and police sirens -- and yet I can't hear ANY of that, even though it's technically closer to me! Very weird.

So in my case, I find the trains sounds soothing.

Posted by: Kindltot


Me too!

This year, all my Jerusalem artichokes are also about 10 feet tall, even though I never tended to them in any way -- they just grew on their own. And just right today, they are just beginning to show their flower buds. So we're in the exact same situation! I have no idea why this year they are growing so much taller than last year. El Nino, I guess.

In fact, they'e so big and there are so many plants that I have started to get worried about what to do with all those J-chokes. I have already begun researching additional ways to prepare them to eliminate (or attenuate) the intestinal gas situation. But sadly, apparently, it's much more difficult to deal with than I would prefer. There IS no good solution -- aside form the two that I stumbled upon (boiling in lemon juice, and pickling). Inulin is a harsh mistress. Slow cooking doesn't really solve the issue, despite the old wives' tales. "Cold storage" for six weeks can help (i.e. dig 'em up, but then purposely don't eat them for a month or two.)

401 Listening to tje staatskappel dresden recording of Strauss' Metamorphosen. Bastard is a genius - at the 13 minute mark, it sounds as if the higher strings will carry their variation of the theme, but you can hear the cellos and such on the lower scale begin their motif, and, by degrees, the higher strings shift to carry that motif. He builds your hope for some resolution where the ensemble will all carry a new variation, but he leaves you with the lower motif across all strings.

415 Thing about Strauss vs Wagner - Wagner's greatest works were more or less based in emotion fueled by imagination. Metamorphosen - this is the sound of mourning and the loss of all hope.
Mahler hailed Strauss as a genius, and Goebbels despised him good enough for me.

416 Anyone besides me ever had bad things happen after a tetatnus booster? It's two weeks out and my arm and shoulder are still hurting - other joints too - at least where the tendons insert.
(My knees hurt, my heels hurt.)
I expected to have a sore arm a few days and maybe a little tired or fluey, but weird tightness in my muscles set in. All of my teeth began to ache like I had run the 400 yard dash and tried to win. And shortly thereafter I had jaw spasms - almost took myself to the ER, because it was hard to talk and swallow. It got worse, my jaw clenched so hard I cracked at least one molar.

Seems like the toxin might not have been perfectly denatured or something.

It is like most States, the large urban areas are all commie, the rural areas not so much. Its just that TX has so much more rural areas then most of the other States. CA does too but those areas there are mostly low population deserts.

Posted by: Vic We Have No Party at September 05, 2016 06:24 AM (mpXpK)

467 Vic, the big cities always come to dominate the state. We see that here in Iowa. It's all the rural areas can do to stave off the bureaucrats in Des Moines.

477 All hale Kim Jong Un...It's great to be the king! I like the cleaver ways Kim finds to get rid of some offical, anti aircraft gun, if true, which I sometimes doubt.

Some accounts suggest that Kim Yong Jin dozed off during a meeting with
He Who Is Not To Be Trifled With. Although maybe Kim Jong Un instead
found fault with the deputy's reported "disrespectful posture." Was he
slouching? Pouting? Unclear.

Posted by: Colin at September 05, 2016 06:52 AM (hIWCG)

478 Sounds like the neighbor needs their own liquor. I'm either going back to sleep or getting up and grab a beer to keep me company while I start the beans.

522 So NYT is estimating that the Obamas' post-presidency books about how great they were as president and first lady will get them something in the neighborhood of $20 - 45 million.

Hillary Clinton got a reported $8 million for her first lady book, but IIRC, the publisher lost money on the book.

Of course, she wasn't a "historic first" like the Obamas, so maybe that explains why publishers think so many more people will shell out money for the Obamas' books? Seems like a pretty risky proposition to me, but maybe they're counting on the Obamas putting clauses into their speaking contracts requiring the purchase of X number of their books, or perhaps they've made a deal with Hillary to require the government to purchase X number of their books (like Obama was having the government purchase copies of his books).

525 Sheriff Joe is a once-in-a-lifetime out here in AZ. He's tough but if you've followed him over the years he's withstood attack after attack and most if not all of the charges against him have been found exaggerated at best or outright fabricated at worst both via the media and courts. Obama, local dems and RINOs have been out to get him since the start b/c of his illegal immigration raids. Read the story of Danny's Car Wash out here - that was Joe's doing. I say long live Joe.
