Overnight Open Thread (6-12-2014)

Quote of the Day

Laycock's wrong is to have taken the position that there may be cases in which individual religious freedom should trump compliance with law - a view that, during Bill Clinton's administration, was considered the liberal position in our politics." It's not enough to hold the right views. It's essential to hold them at the right time.

As Hillary has learned to her dismay. More details at "The pomposity and arrogance of these children (of the corn?) is just amazing"

Quote of the Day II

...Elizabeth Warren isn't an economic expert or a progressive policy crusader. She's a talented populist who sells clever but unserious proposals with a sense of academic sophistication that makes Bostonians feel like they're clapping for someone whose views are an intellectual cut above Ed Schultz's. In the end, they're not. But they definitely are clapping.

Why Do Teachers Complain So Much?

Others Have Noticed That Teachers Think of Themselves as One Step Removed From Coal Mine Workers

And that teacher unions and their members are some of the most ardent supporters of the Left in general.

At National Review, Jason Richwine points out that this martyrdom shtick benefits them in intangible ways, and is the flip side of the disdain with which doctors are increasingly treated in our society.  This got me thinking about the fact that, in every society that socialized its medicine, doctor's status instantly degraded.  This is true whether you're looking at the Soviet Union, Cuba, England, Canada, France, or anywhere else.  This is true even though doctors have the longest education and apprenticeship of any job in America and, once they're working, they truly hold our lives in their hands.  Likewise, in every socialized society, teachers' status improves.  This is true despite the fact that their training places a moderate demand on their time and they don't hold our lives in their hands.

Thinking about it, of course, this socialist inversion makes perfect sense.  Teachers produce the next generation of socialists; doctors cost money by saving the lives of old socialists who no longer contribute to the commune.  The relative values assigned these jobs in a socialist society has nothing to do with their contributions to the individual and everything to do with their contributions to the state.

A Tale Of Two Cities And The Homeless

The homeless have become so ubiquitous that they're now being treated like a part of nature that architects and engineers simply design against. Hence the anti-sleeping entryway spikes and raised walkways between buildings.

Venezuela Runs Out of Drinking Water

But at least they have air and heat. For now. Oh and they have no debt - just a few pesky foreign exchange dealings.

Although in May the government began to pay down some of its bills, it still has over $25 billion dollars of debt outstanding to foreign companies that provide its medicine, operate its telephones, and import its food. Remain calm, however. Fervently denying that the temple of Bolivarian Socialism has credit problems, the Economy Vice President stated, "Venezuela doesn't have debt with anyone. What we have are pending foreign-exchange liquidations, which we are reviewing."

Why You Don't Want a State Church - PART XXI

The state can simply order the church to conduct and honor gay marriages. Or whatever else it desires.

The country's parliament voted through the new law on same-sex marriage by a large majority, making it mandatory for all churches to conduct gay marriages.

Denmark's church minister, Manu Sareen, called the vote "historic".

"I think it's very important to give all members of the church the possibility to get married. Today, it's only heterosexual couples."

Under the law, individual priests can refuse to carry out the ceremony, but the local bishop must arrange a replacement for their church.

The far-Right Danish People's Party mounted a strong campaign against the new law, which nonetheless passed with the support of 85 of the country's 111 MPs.

Steven Seagal stopped doing "action" a little after "Exit Wounds", when his gut got nearly as big as his ego.

That being said, as long as Seagal can get his crap filmed in Eastern Europe and there's a robust direct-to-DVD market, we'll never be rid of Seagal films.

It's also painfully obvious when they put in a stuntman now because Seagal couldn't run (or waddle) a short distance.

I once made the mistake of seeing "Maximum Conviction", the movie with Steven Seagal and Steve Austin. I don't recall Seagal doing much; Austin had the lion's share of the action scenes.

60 Hey everybody.

Bad news I guess. A female FB friend who has NEVER posted anything political before (some mild feminist stuff, but I can live with that) suddenly posted a pic that says the following.

"Dear pro-gun activitists, Hear this and hear it well. My right-- and the right of my children-- to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness will always trump your gun fetish and treasonous desire to prepare for war with your own government. And if that bothers you, well, I'll see you at the polls in November."

Geez. Anyway I responded:

(Her name), the vast majority of gun owners have no "fetish" or big fantasy about using their guns against black helicopters. It's fine if you personally don't like guns but judging all gun owners by the few crazies just isn't fair. Edited to add: also, the vast vast majority of gun owners HATE what happened at Sandy Hook and other horrible tragedies. They just don't believe banning guns is the answer.

If she unfriends me, whatever. I'm used to attractive women hating my guts for no reason by now anyway. But I hope I managed to be forceful without being offensive.

74 I don't know how well known it is, but Austin has a huge homeless problem. Probably because we built the Homeless Hilton in the form of the nicest homeless shelter in the country, but I digress.

The problem is that those pesky "displaced" individuals won't just stay put in the nice shelter. They wander. They loiter. No worries, the City of Austin has come up with a solution.

Anti-sleeping park benches. They're cleverly disguised as "arm rests" but the real intent is to make it impossible for anyone to lay down.

Of course, as you would expect from liberals, there have been unintended consequences. Back when I lived off S. Congress I once found a homeless man sleeping on the playscape at the local park at 10:30 in the morning. Well, I think he was sleeping. I quickly fled with my 2 year old before doing a test of his vitals.

LOL... When 9/11 happened I was recently retired from the Navy, living in Denver, dating a very Hawt Liberal Lady.

I thought I was on the short list for recall, and had just had laser surgery on my eyes... which threw my vision off a bit...

So ... I bought a .45 to practice with... She immediately broke up with me. Her 'Reaons"? "I bought a gun that could only be used to shoot people'... even though I had 3 other guns already in my house...

I name my weapons... so I named this gun "Reason"....

107 "The homeless have become so ubiquitous that they're now being treated
like a part of nature that architects and engineers simply design
against. Hence the anti-sleeping entryway spikes and raised walkways
between buildings."

Something that absolutely fascinates me about contemporary San Francisco, and to which I am sure the other SF locals around the HQ can attest (navybrat, SFGoth, zombie, others?) is the acute disconnect between local individual resident attitudes toward the "homeless", and local public policy towards the "homeless".

I constantly hear local individual residents around SF bitch vitriolically about the "homeless" wino who dropped a stanky deuce on their doorstep, or the "homeless" junkie who popped their car side window with a sparkplug to steal 75 cents from the change tray, or the "homeless" schizophrenic who conducted a top of the lungs argument between the voices in his head at 4AM right under their window, or the "homeless" illegal alien who burned down the building next to theirs by lighting a trash fire.

Then, absolutely without fail, these very same people who regularly and rudely are intruded upon, stolen from, endangered and inconvenienced by "the homeless", who pay huge taxes to prop up "the homeless", and who will tell you that they aren't happy about any of that, will go to the polls and vote in the most extreme left-wing moonbat candidates imaginable, who of course proceed to coddle and cosset the "homeless" population in such a way as to attract many more "homeless" to SF.

It's utterly ludicrous but completely true.

They embrace their odd freedom and I can't actually fault them for that, I get it. It's not just that they can't afford a roof over their head, they don't want to be a part of the system. Doesn't matter how swanky the digs, but I understand that the bullshit artists in Austin didn't figure that out.

Well, I'm not home at the moment, but I'm left "back home."

Just me.

Me and the dog.

And the usual six cats.

Annnd another littlest old ladycat who is most unhappy about not being at her usual residence.

Milady Webworker, Daughter, and Local Son are on their way to a family reunion in CHICAGO. THE HEART OF THE BEAST IN WARTIME! (Wait a minute while I tighten the mylar on the cowboy hat.) I told them to keep the gas tank filled, plan multiple exit routes, and if anything happened, transmit it immediately before they confiscate your cells.

And those are just the usual travel tips.

More currently, the Caliphate has overtaken our capital, setting their captains free, handing our borders over to their drug cartel allies; threats are multiple, imminent, and powerful. Plus, Friday the 13th and a Full Moon.

So return to Oklahoma once your assignment of infiltration is complete, I told them, while I am left here to hold down the fort. That was not an easy choice.

Friday the 13th is the only part I'm kidding about. It's my lucky day. All the other stuff, true facts.

Discussed my son's bearing arms into the lands of the enemy hostiles and the wildlings: talked about legality as one thing, hasslefactor as another. What do you think he should have done? I know. I'm not saying.

Seriously, it's only four days. What can go ...

156 Another funny thing about Austin's homeless scene is that they all, without fail, have computers/ipods ect. My husband works on the UT campus, and they always have random homeless vagrants outside their office screwing around on the computer and making the place smell like crap.

This makes our "homeless or college student" game much harder, and our "homeless or professor" game completely impossible. I do wonder if there's a program giving out these computers, or it's just a bunch of druggies who'd rather spend money on toys than rent.

Something IS rotten in the state of Denmark.

Go to Wiki for Denmark and the subheading Religion (or something like that) and to the State Church (or something like that) hot-linked in a paragraph in the subsection to get to the more-specific article. I linked both a day or so ago in the ONT but don't feel like going back.

Lutherans (Evangelical?) are the nominal overwhelming majority but I think "not practicing" or similar was in the 40% range. And the monarch isn't completely the head of the Church but it looks like there's a cabinet minister!!! (I assume from a leftist party currently) who decides on policy.

Invariably, we'd start picking up lunatics in Phoenix and all points west. Every damn time, without fail. One of the drivers told mama that when mental hospitals back east got full, they'd give the least crazy ones one-way bus tickets to warm climates.

191 74 I don't know how well known it is, but Austin has a huge homeless problem. Probably because we built the Homeless Hilton in the form of the nicest homeless shelter in the country, but I digress.

The problem is that those pesky "displaced" individuals won't just stay put in the nice shelter. They wander. They loiter. No worries, the City of Austin has come up with a solution.

Anti-sleeping park benches. They're cleverly disguised as "arm rests" but the real intent is to make it impossible for anyone to lay down.

Of course, as you would expect from liberals, there have been unintended consequences. Back when I lived off S. Congress I once found a homeless man sleeping on the playscape at the local park at 10:30 in the morning. Well, I think he was sleeping. I quickly fled with my 2 year old before doing a test of his vitals.

Thanks, hippies.

Something IS rotten in the state of Denmark.
Go to Wiki for Denmark and the subheading Religion (or something like that) and to the State Church (or something like that) hot-linked in a paragraph in the subsection to get to the more-specific article. I linked both a day or so ago in the ONT but don't feel like going back.

Lutherans (Evangelical?) are the nominal overwhelming majority but I think "not practicing" or similar was in the 40% range. And the monarch isn't completely the head of the Church but it looks like there's a cabinet minister!!! (I assume from a leftist party currently) who decides on policy.

Illusory and temporary. The housing bubble up here is massive.

When the US Fed bumps interest rates - and they eventually will have to do so - the Bank of Canada will do the same.

Let's just say that Canadian banks, real estate agents, and house flippers didn't learn a fucking thing from the experience of the United States.

I strongly advise all states, cities, counties, public libraries, sewer districts, mosquito control boards, and what have you to start to practice Greyhound therapy even more aggressively.

Pack up every loony bin refugee, heroin addict, career alcoholic, petty thief, ex-con and illegal alien you can find, and ship them directly to San Francisco, California. You can find instructions on SF's Web site about how to apply for the city's bounteous benefits.

An RA I had in college was Iraqi. He was outside the US when Gulf War 1 happened and made it back just before the shooting started. On the bus ride back to school, he sat next to an old Vietnam vet who was talking about nuking the shit of Iraq and every Arab over there. Then he turned to my RA and asked where was from. From that moment on, he was "Mike from India".

Understood. Probably the same here in GA, although I've only ever worried about barrel length. The rest seems to kinda take care of itself.

300 CRAZY hard to get a job in CA. now if not fluent in Spanish. That's who the majority of the clients are.
Goddam liberals have made it a place that their children can only get a job with great difficulty if then.
In my observation many of the youth of all identities are enraged by this and really don't take too much to question the leftist platform.
Unfortunately, the poorer the students, the more likely they are to perceive a need for big gov't.
I point out that the poorer people are the more they vote Dem and the more successful they are in general the more the vote Rep.
So why would the dems ever make anything better???

Tammy,

Unless you have the appropriate NFA paperwork, you have an illegal short-barreled shotgun. That's a federal pound-me-in-the-ass offense with a pretty stiff minimum sentence.

If you ever attract official attention, you could be in a world of hurt. I would suggest you have it demilled according to ATF specs, legally transferred as an NFA firearm, or keep it well hidden and don't speak about it publicly. A few inches off the barrel is not worth the hassle.

381 Teachers complain so much because so many of them go into teaching for the "perks",not the job itself. I can't tell you how many times I've heard a college student in education state that they want to be a teacher to have summers off. And because they "like kids".
It's the only job where you train people to teach subjects that they haven't mastered or even proven much competence. So instead of having someone who say, loves history, has been involved in archeological digs, or worked at museums, etc. then go through courses to help them understand the mechanics of teaching, we have universities churning out 22 year olds with Ed. degrees and then states conferring them a license. They are hired by xyz school system for the school year and they now are supposed to impart knowledge on many subjects to a room full of mush headed kids. Knowledge that they themselves don't possess.

So enter the canned lesson plans, the common core, etc. all designed by more teachers and "educators" who themselves have barely any acceptable knowledge of individual subjects.

This is why we have the stupid questions on math we see today in the common core curriculum. The curriculum is not designed by experts in math...no, it is designed by group think teachers who want to simply create state approved drones, who can pass a state approved test.

Meanwhile, our 22-23 year old is spending all day teaching stuff she/he couldn't care less about, has little mastery of to kids that aren't the sweet darlings in class like they are when Aunt Annnie held birthday parties at her house for the neighbor kids.

But it pays well to start, the school day ends at 2:30, there are three months off in the summer, a week here and there through the school year, benefits, etc. And no matter how bad you screw up, the union won't allow you to be fired or disciplined.

I realize I am generalizing and there are teachers out there who truly want to be really good.

They aren't the one's complaining.

If I'd been alone I think I'd have been more nervous, but you know how you kind of get protective when you're looking after little ones? Which is not to say I wasn't scared. But I was mainly pissed off.

400 "I bought a gun that could only be used to shoot
people...."

The missus was quite discomfited once upon a time when I explained that a particular firearm wasn't for hunting, wasn't for fun, but was for shooting people, shooting them stone cold dead on the spot, and that's why I owned it.

And she stayed in that wary condition for a while. Not really liking that ugly scary cold-steel people-killing device. Thinking that my ownership of same revealed some potentially unwelcome fissures in my character.

Then one night at oh-dark-thirty when I wasn't home, some "people" energetically tried to break into the house. A well lit, visibly occupied house. They didn't get in, but it sure scared the bejeezus out of her.

After that she became rather fond of that weapon. And less fond of "people" as a generic category. And ready to shoot her some "people" if required.

401 Random Reagan quote:

"Our natural unalienable rights are now presumed to be a dispensation of government, divisible by a vote of the majority. The greatest good for the greatest number is a high-sounding phrase but contrary to the very basis of our Nation, unless it is accompanied by the recognition that we have certain rights which cannot be infringed upon, even if the individual stands outvoted by all of his fellow citizens. Without this recognition, majority rule is nothing more then mob rule."

I have a friend who is allergic to bug bites. Her hubby's old family folk remedy works like a charm: cut a lemon in half & burn the cut end. Let it cool enough to not burn your skin & apply to the bite. Draws the toxins out. But you gotta do it as soon as you notice the bite.

You might also try Bendaryl if you're really allergic. Also, a paste of baking soda on them.

And yes, citrus juice of any kind is good to kill them in the house...we used to use grated up orange peel and throw it all over, then vacuum it up after a few days. (In a bad rental apartment) Did it again 10 days later and it took care of it.

Well, it's a provincial election in Ontario, which is the largest Province in both area and population. But it has ceased to be the economic engine that drives the country; that honor has fallen to Alberta, with Saskatchewan nipping at our heels.

Those who wish to leave Ontario, may I suggest you do it sooner rather than later, since once the moonbat economic policies take full force, there will inevitably be a real estate crash. And if you do come out West, I want you to sign a pledge to never again vote for a left-wing party, regardless of its name.

491 and to conclude my gay comments for the night, I am happy he said it.

We have GOT to stop cowering in fear of these people, including Gavin Newsome. They are demanding apologies, etc. and I'm going to be pissed if Perry offers one.

He said that he simply would choose not to live a gay lifestyle were he born with a gay "gene" , same as he would not indulge in alcohol if he were born with an addictive gene.

So again, what they are pissed about is that he didn't fall down crying saying that gays and living as a practicing homosexual is wonderful and good, and normal and couldn't possibly be a disorder. And now the gay mafia will do whatever they can to demand that Perry be executed in whatever manner they see fit.

498 Hi Morons. So today I was in line in a 7-11. Ahead of me in line was a guy who tried to use his Independence Card to buy some stuff ( Orwell has nothing on Maryland. The EBT cards welfare recipients get, the one that makes them dependent on government, is called the "Independence Card". Seriously ). The clerk told him that his purchases "weren't eligible"(shock!). The guy opens his wallet, which is STUFFED full of bills (they may have mostly been ones for all I know, but the one he pulled out was a twenty) and pays. He then tucks his Galaxy S5 phone, attached to $300 beats earphones, into his other pocket, puts his change in his wallet, and leaves the store. He gets into his late model (last 2 years), professionally detailed (the rain droplets had droplets on them) Lexus SUV and leaves.

Years from now when anthropologists are trying to figure out why the middle class of the most prosperous nation in history revolted, leading to much blood and disaster, I hope they find this post, it might give them their first clue.

Good observation. But that will really hit the young families who have bought more house than they can afford, and have a huge mortgage, and little equity. My home is paid for. No mortgage. My sis and her husband recently downsized in Vancouver's red-hot real estate market, and sold their home for nearly 2 million, and turned around and bought a half-duplex for 1 million. No debt, and money in the bank. It's the young folks who will take the fall.

538 I am a little surprised Perry didn't use his years of experience to just respond with "huh? What sort of question is that? Why don't you ask me what I think about theories of an expanding universe. I haven't thought about it, and it really doesn't really touch on my public responsibilities. I'm sure your fine universities in the Bay area are chock full of researchers with good answers. What I can say is that these same fine universities, and your state capital, seem to lack any clue about good governance or America's culture of freedom. These aren't hard things, really, but I think I could help y'all in those areas." (all with a smile and in a jocular manner).

Fuck, in a country of 300+ million, we basically have nobody who can deliver a clear answer regarding on basicpublic policy issues? And bat away the crap with some wit?

Anyone who is not a brain-dead, delusional, racist, rent-seeking authoritarian alien freak (i.e., any non-"liberal" public figure) should by now not break a sweat when fielding these idiotic questions intended solely to stir up trouble.

This is not hard. And turning the tables - confronting the nonsense and bigotry and ignorance contained in the premises of about 90% of questions asked by "the press" - is also very easy. And practiced by 1% of public figures. Rumsfeld stood out completely in his press conferences - but all he was doing was not letting any lies or distortions inherent in "questions" get by without a thorough refutation. Ought to be SOP for any public figure with a clue.

Both, in excess can and will destroy. In each case, while one is inclined to certain behavior, the behavior one engages in is a choice.

In Commiefornia, the EBT government-dependence card is named "Golden State Advantage", and I know just what it looks like. Because it's fucking well everywhere in Commiefornia. Ubiquitous.

I have posted before about stopping at a particular big-box retailer that I try to avoid on pain of terminal ragestroke. But this time it was unavoidable.

Found a nice package of steaks in the butcher section. Hefted them, looked at them, thought about it, figured that, well, shit, not in this week's budget.

At the checkout line, half a dozen different customer groups in front of me. All of them in colorful effnic garb, none a single of them speaking English. All of them paying with EBT cards.

The last customer through before I checked out? Paid with EBT. After casually tossing on the belt the very same package of steak -- I noticed the broken corner on the foam base -- that I had regretfully passed on.

Anyone else want this country? I'm pretty much done with it and am looking for a new one. No intention of giving my loyal service, my good citizenship, my help to neighbors, my hard-earned money or anything else to this open-door welfare-state trainwreck any longer.

These are cultural issues, not political ones. I don't want politicians fighting cultural wars.

For example, I think being a single mom is something society should look down on and that couples shouldn't live together before being married, but I don't want Rick Perry or the Republican Party making that case.

People who want to pursue these sorts of "spiritual" issues should stay out of politics.

The whole short-barreled shotgun thing strikes me as completely insane, even for a paranoid Ruling Class that fears popular uprising. When people go after the Ruling Class, they're not going to walk up, stand there, and wait to get shot at -- they'll buy these http://ardrone2.parrot.com/ -- get the option with the "real-time 720p streamed to their smartphone", and mount a crude hammer mechanism with 4-6 shotgun shells on single-use aluminum 6-10" barrels.

But, no -- it's worth having a Ruby Ridge or hassling someone over a piece handcrafted by their grandfather because a barrel is shorter than 18.5".

Tolerance was just an excuse to snooker the dupes.

America always tended to tolerance and inclusiveness generally speaking, far more than almost any other country. The Left took advantage of this and exploited it to get their foot in the door.

Sexuality can be divided in twain:

Reproductive urges and non-reproductive urges.

Sex is a biological drive to reproduce. The deviation of sex from this is just that, a deviation. This carries with it no moral component.

Personally, just as long as you aren't raping someone, I don't care what you do.

What the Left have done is declare that 90% of all people are homosexual or bisexual. They wish to denormalize the normal.

Comparing homosexuality with alcoholism is far more accurate than comparing it with race. With race, it is a matter of superficial aspects. Homosexuality is defined by behavior or propensity toward such behavior... just like alcoholism.

There is a difference between being genetically inclined towards alcoholism and actually being an alcoholic. Similarly, there is a difference between being attracted sexually to someone of the same sex, and actually engaging in such acts.

The Left are hypocritical on this and someone needs to call them on it.

Spoken to an ignorant semiliterate nation who can no longer parse such things. You might as well discuss the finer aesthetic points of classical music with your dog. Shut the fuck up.

Or the WMD response from Rummy? When asked where the loudly touted WMD were?

"We know where they are. They're in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west, south and north somewhat."

Fuck me standing.

"East, west, south and north somewhat."

Yeah, that sure narrows it down. To all four cardinal compass points. Sorry, thanks for playing. Game over, you complete numbskull. Your resignation is accepted with immediate effect.

The appropriate response to such a question is,

"This country has troops on the ground in heavy contact every day, with tough adversaries. Our troops are fighting hard, but losing limbs and losing lives. My first responsibility is getting as many of them home alive and intact as possible. Not conducting Hardy Boys junior-detective searches. WMD may be found, they may not be found, I have not taken a public position either way, nor is it appropriate for me to do so. Next question please."

The person wasn't authorized to talk publicly.

The person said the investigators also are looking into whether other owners made any off-color jokes, or racist or sexist remarks.

Because like Alcoholism... the Gay lifestyle is destructive.

Suicide rates for gays are 4 to 5 times the normal rate... and even with the current acceptance and even celebration... those rates are not declining.

My view is that it's a losing issue when politicians start talking about sexual morals.

I also think divorce is immoral and has had a much more devastating negative effect on society than gay marriage, but I don't want Rick Perry talking about divorce.

But if you are going to say homosexuality is like alcoholism, then that basically gives ammunition to the "born this way" that the Gay Lobby has been pushing since forever.

Until I see real scientific evidence of a "gay gene" I'm not going along with that view.

The newest lefty meme is that Americans are now embracing the vegetarian lifestyle!!!

Their reasoning? The amount of meat eaten by Americans has been dropping after being on the rise . Know when the drop happened? 2008. Yep, Americans aren't eating less meat because they can't afford it, they are eating less because they want to be vegetarians.

To them, this is a feature, not a bug.

588 Sexuality can be divided in twain:

Reproductive urges and non-reproductive urges.

Sex is a biological drive to reproduce. The deviation of sex from this is just that, a deviation. This carries with it no moral component.

Personally, just as long as you aren't raping someone, I don't care what you do.

What the Left have done is declare that 90% of all people are homosexual or bisexual. They wish to denormalize the normal.

Comparing homosexuality with alcoholism is far more accurate than comparing it with race. With race, it is a matter of superficial aspects. Homosexuality is defined by behavior or propensity toward such behavior... just like alcoholism.

There is a difference between being genetically inclined towards alcoholism and actually being an alcoholic. Similarly, there is a difference between being attracted sexually to someone of the same sex, and actually engaging in such acts.

The Left are hypocritical on this and someone needs to call them on it.
Posted by: The Political Hat at June 13, 2014 01:36 AM (K1sEu)

This encapsulates the argument that's been all but missing in the equal protection debate vis a vis gay marriage:

Behavior was not intended to be considered as a factor to the 14th Amendment's equality. No reasonable analysis of an amendment meant to being about equal treatment on the basis of race can conclude this. (That the amendment is abysmally worded and should have made this plain is unopposed here.)

Opening up behavior to the penumbra of traits by which we start concluding equality takes us down a dark road that knows no limited factors, save the limits to what aberrant behaviors those in power wish to normalize.

Maybe when marriage has its last stand before the Supremes before Anthony Kennedy has the decision he's been waiting to write all his life, someone shall make this argument....And identify the absolute fucking terrible Pandora's Box we've now opened by considering behavior in the same vein as race.

If Scalia is still there, he should be good for a doomsaying cautionary dissent....And sad to say, his ill prognostications shall be entirely correct. It's a dark path we now tread.

But if Texas is going to win the NBA championship, well good on 'em. Texas is a great State, and Texans are fine people. Don't conflate a general disinterest in a particular commercial sport with hate for Texas. That's just silly.

Yep, Americans aren't eating less meat because they can't afford it,

Also, as a contributing factor in the drop in per capita meat consumption, we have the federally mandated "green, healthy" MoochMeals(tm) in the schools. Oh boy! Low salt lentil cakes, baked instead of fried! Raw broccoli! Nom nom nom! Kids live for that stuff, you can be sure.

Funny thing. Mooch herself, to judge by the photographs of her plate at publicly attended dinners, isn't backing off her own consumption of meat one bit. One-fifth vegetable content was the last estimate I saw based on such photos.

Thinking back here to the era when lefties raged about Ronald Reagan supposedly personally ruling that ketchup was a vegetable for purposes of school meals. Cruel plutocratic exploitation of minorities and the working classes! Imperialist capitalist running dogs!

As one person said to me, based on their experience of being an actual non-hypothetical kid in school during the Reagan years, the difference between ketchup and genuine vegetables was that they at least might consume some of the ketchup, whereas they invariably tipped the genuine vegetables uneaten into the garbage can at the end of the lunch hour.

Just as they do with the modern MoochMeals(tm).

We have to pretend that gay culture and lifestyles are exactly the same as straight lifestyles. Which is why you see billboards up announcing how "anyone" can get AIDS. While technically true (there's no magical heterosexual shield against the disease), it's also designed to cover up the unpleasant fact that the overwhelming majority of new cases come from men who have sex with men (MSM) and intravenous drug users, or those women who have sex with the former two groups.

Posted by: ManWithNoParty at June 13, 2014 01:57 AM (ojnk6)


It's not that easy. Running on the argument of "State Rights" has a couple major problems.

1) Slavery. Like it or not, the minute you start talking about State's Rights, the other side will accuse you of being a neoconfederate sympathizer who wants to put blacks in chains.

2) Complication. You start talking about how California should be able to do one thing and Florida another and a lot of people tune out. They like the nice big shiny object that the Dems offer, which leads to...

3) Cost. A lot of people like national-level solutions because they figure someone else is paying for it. If I live in Ohio and hear about some national level education reform, then I figure that the government will take money from California to do it. If I hear about how Ohio should reform on it's own, I'm more likely to think about how much it's going to cost me.

4) Lack of support. Any push for shifting responsibilities from the national to state level needs to start with Governors taking a much more active and vocal role in pushing for those responsibilities and calling out the Feds when they overreach. Until they stop clamoring like little piggies at the trough, it's no use.

634 "We have to pretend that gay culture and lifestyles are exactly the same
as straight lifestyles. Which is why you see billboards up announcing
how 'anyone' can get AIDS."

And this has been going on since the late 1980s, by which time the epidemiology of HIV-AIDS had become quite clear, and was just as you say.

See also: Michael Fumento and _The Myth Of Heterosexual AIDS_.

Fumento having been one of the earliest victims of the Gaystapo pressure campaign, despite his having been absolutely correct (and ahead of his time) regarding the differential statistical risk of gay male sex vs. hetero sex. Burn the witch!

Probably off-topic, but I'm traveling and have limited time and patience to read all comments in this threadlne. I got my hair cut two days ago by a woman whose stepdaughter (SD) served as an MP at Gitmo.

She said to count said stepdaughter among those who were extremely pissed off about the release by TFG of the Taliban Five. SD said they were among the nastiest of the nasty at Gitmo with many noteworthy acts to their credit, including flinging their feces at the guards.

From the sound of things, the most rational and safest way to empty Gitmo would be to stage necktie parties for all still detained there, with a sidelight ass-droning of the Taliban Five for extra measure.

They sailed to the Western Sea, they did,
To a land all covered with trees,
And they bought an Owl, and a useful Cart,
And a pound of Rice, and a Cranberry Tart,
And a hive of silvery Bees.
And they bought a Pig, and some green Jack-daws,
And a lovely Monkey with lollipop paws,
And forty bottles of Ring-Bo-Ree,
And no end of Stilton Cheese.
Far and few, far and few,
Are the lands where the Jumblies live;
Their heads are green, and their hands are blue,
And they went to sea in a Sieve.


VI

And in twenty years they all came back,
In twenty years or more,
And every one said, 'How tall they've grown!'
For they've been to the Lakes, and the Torrible Zone,
And the hills of the Chankly Bore;
And they drank their health, and gave them a feast
Of dumplings made of beautiful yeast;
And everyone said, 'If we only live,
We too will go to sea in a Sieve, --
To the hills of the Chankly Bore!'
Far and few, far and few,
Are the lands where the Jumblies live;
Their heads are green, and their hands are blue,
And they went to sea in a Sieve.

674 Has anyone here ever actually read Allen Ginsberg's "Howl"?
Now, I'm not in favor of censorship of any work, but the best fate this poem could met was to be totally ignored. The only reason it became a favorite of The Left is that it overtly glorifies (among other things) both pedophilia and communism.

A snippet, for your edification:

"[I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness]...who burned cigarette holes in their arms protesting the narcotic tobacco haze
of Capitalism,
who distributed Supercommunist pamphlets in Union Square weeping and
undressing while the sirens of Los Alamos wailed them down, and
wailed down Wall, and the Staten Island ferry also wailed,
who broke down crying in white gymnasiums naked and trembling before
the machinery of other skeletons,
who bit detectives in the neck and shrieked with delight in policecars for
committing no crime but their own wild cooking pederasty and
intoxication,
who howled on their knees in the subway and were dragged off the roof
waving genitals and manuscripts,
who let themselves be fucked in the ass by saintly motorcyclists, and
screamed with joy,
who blew and were blown by those human seraphim, the sailors, caresses of
Atlantic and Caribbean love,
who balled in the morning in the evenings in rosegardens and the grass of
public parks and cemeteries scattering their semen freely to whom-
ever come who may..."

etc.

Yeah, it was obscene...but more importantly, it was morally bankrupt. And consequently, it is praised to generations of students, by teachers who wish to inculcate that moral bankruptcy to the young 'uns.

It is also frequently cited as the best American poem of the last 100 years.

Well, I certainly have, and at the time I read it I was the proverbial pimply adolescent really liking the idea of Sticking It To The Man. Loved it! Awesome! Down with bourgeois conformity!

Except I figured out a few years on down the line that while Ginsberg was sitting fat and happy in the States talking about seeing "the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness", by which he meant intoxication and overindulgence, other people elsewhere were seeing the far more distinguished "best minds of their generation" quite literally destroyed.

Destroyed by nine-millimeter bullets fired through the medulla oblongota for the crime of simply disagreeing with the State.

And then there's this:

http://tinyurl.com/pwbbhtl

' "Two years ago," Paglia wrote, "with Allen Ginsberg and others, I signed a manifesto supporting NAMBLA (the North American Man Boy Love Association)."
...
Paedophilia was a theme in Allen Ginsberg's poetry, and he often spoke in defence of child molesters. He dedicated a poem to NAMBLA so vile that I'd probably get a visit from the police if I quoted it. Whether he was a paedophile himself is a matter of contention. He denied it but, then again, anyone with a healthy fear of prison probably would. In a little-known interview with The Harvard Crimson, titled "Politics, Pederasty and Consciousness", Ginsberg said: "As I get older, having very specialised sexual tastes, it gets harder to make out.... I like young boys...."
...
Even in perversion, Ginsberg could be lyrical. Although his friendship with the feminist Andrea Dworkin ended after a rather more crude argument over the ethics of child porn. Dworkin described him as, "a paedophile... exceptionally aggressive about... his constant pursuit of under-age boys".

And this:

http://nambla.org/ginsberg.html

"Attacks on NAMBLA stink of politics, witchhunting for profit, humorlessness, vanity, anger and ignorance...
I'm a member of NAMBLA because I love boys too -- everybody does, who has a little humanity."
- Allen Ginsberg, poet.

Etc.

that shotgun thoroughly with a petroleum based solution, stick it in a
couple inch wide PVC pipe, stuff a bunch of desiccant packets in, seal

Triangulate on the spot, keep the cords on several different pieces of

I have 4 M-1 Carbines (M-2 minus selector) buried that way. 4" Black ABS pipe sealed both ends, ammo and spare magazines in each one, sealed in Food Saver wrap. Buried 8 years ago. Each cache is mapped to 8 digit grid coordinates. I don't trust GPS to be available.

Check caches every 3-4 years. The terrain may alter slightly and throw you off.

And then there's this:

' "Two years ago," Paglia wrote, "with Allen Ginsberg and others, I
signed a manifesto supporting NAMBLA (the North American Man Boy Love
Association)."

...

Paedophilia was a theme in Allen Ginsberg's poetry, and he often
spoke in defence of child molesters. He dedicated a poem to NAMBLA so
vile that I'd probably get a visit from the police if I quoted it.
Whether he was a paedophile himself is a matter of contention. He denied
it but, then again, anyone with a healthy fear of prison probably
would. In a little-known interview with The Harvard Crimson, titled
"Politics, Pederasty and Consciousness", Ginsberg said: "As I get older,
having very specialised sexual tastes, it gets harder to make out.... I
like young boys...."

...

Even in perversion, Ginsberg could be lyrical. Although his
friendship with the feminist Andrea Dworkin ended after a rather more
crude argument over the ethics of child porn. Dworkin described him as,
"a paedophile... exceptionally aggressive about... his constant pursuit
of under-age boys".



And this:



http://nambla.org/ginsberg.html



"Attacks on NAMBLA stink of politics, witchhunting for profit, humorlessness, vanity, anger and ignorance...

I'm a member of NAMBLA because I love boys too -- everybody does, who has a little humanity."

- Allen Ginsberg, poet.



Etc.

Let's just stick with his being a talentless hack who left no lasting mark upon the national consciousness.....'cause if we start into his personal life, I might just hurl.

688 "While all are bahl hornin', the Tallulah Extra Pale Ale is outstanding."

Is anything not from within the Anderson Valley truly bahl hornin'?

(Simultaneous translation for those not from Northern Commiefornia: the valley in question was relatively rural and secluded through most of the previous century, and evolved its own quaint and complex local lingo. They now brew beer there which is exported throughout the region. The beer referred to is not from the Valley.)

689 Well Cthulhu, the well-spring of Ginsberg's poetry is fair game. It seems to be a very polluted fetid pool of diseased water welling up from the blackness of a soul shaped cavity of want without conscience.

That's a great discussion topic -- and far removed from the more unsavory practices of known degenerates. Let's further explore boontling, shall we?

Posted by: cthulhu at June 13, 2014 04:41 AM (T1005)

691 Just check out http://tinyurl.com/cutdu6 -- can there be any question that Boontling is closely related to the Peruvian language? Just check out the b's -- bahlness, bat, batter, beelch, burlapping.....the moron influence is obvious.

International Rules of Cosplay?

WTF? There will be EU and UN inspectors?

Talk about taking the fun out of something. Plus the chance of scary pervs looking up a skirt to see how the tails are attached. No thank you.

693 "Let's further explore boontling, shall we?"

I think that a NorCal Horde field trip is in order.

Purely for purposes of differential linguistic research, mind you.

Getting amusingly blotto on the local beer and wine? A cross which must be borne in the name of science. And research. And exploration. And something something.

Boobehs?

696 "0230 on the East Coast, ugh."

As fingers outrun brain yet again.

That's 0530 on the East Coast. 0230 on the _West_Coast, thank you very much.

Fuckin' digits. How do they work?

697 A shame about no more Steven Segal movies. They often had very nice boobehs, even if they were Steven's.

699 Good morning. I went to bed early and woke up early.

The ONT had 5 comments when I decided to go to bed. Did I miss anything?

700 " Bless you, kbdabear. And now for some D1-R spousal maintenance. Have a great night all.

Dog, I know you posted that hours ago.
But damn, that brings tears to my eyes.

701 Some of the reviews of Hilllary's book were amusing, but it appears to me that most people didn't read the book at all. They just wanted to a humorous riff because they don't like Hillary.

702 So I was watching the PBS discussion of the Pew survey, which shows America deeply divided.

I really believe we are heading towards a national divorce.

The other side can keep the curtains and vacuum cleaner.

704 Morning Torquewrench,
Are you going to sleep soon?
I'm waiting for new thread to reload. I clicked one that Frankenstein race is suddenly competitive & it's taking a long time to go back.


I'd love to get rid of that unfunny ass!

705 Bird spikes on airplanes at the air museum don't keep birds away. The only thing that keeps birds away is the calico cat who lives in the jet hangar next door. I saw her jump down one day from the wheel well of a 'guppy' with a bird in her teeth. Yay, kitteh! You go, girl! Hey, maybe that's why ecoyuppies want red wolves reintroduced? To take care of the 'homeless'?

A 100 years ago teachers were underpaid. But, that was 100 years ago! Do yourself a favor and figure out how much they are paid on an hourly bases. Don't forget they are also paid for every little thing they do - band, football, headstart, out of town meetings, etc. etc. If you teach in South Dakota, you are probably at the low end of the scale. If you are in a Chicago North Shore school, you maybe well over $100,000.
