1 Good Morning Morons. Today is Monday, December 01, 2014. On this day in 1970 one of the most corrupt and harmful government organizations in history was formed; the EPA. And it started out bad by banning DDT based on political whim of the head who had been nominated by Nixon.

5 Obama is now sticking his nose into thee way companies categorize people for paying OT. This has long been a sore point with me, but Obama should have no say-so in it. From what I have seen most big companies will classify you as "exempt" if you just walk by a Manager's office. And then try to work you 60 hours a week.

39 I remember back in college (again, 20-plus years ago), the feministas erected a tree sculpture in the middle of campus, with every male student's name hanging from its branches. It was supposed to represent "potential rapists."

Somehow, it was torn down and destroyed in the middle of the night.

Anyway, the fake rape culture crap is not new.

97 57 -- The Great White Scotsman -- While I don't disagree with your analysis, the results of the 2014 election has made things much more problematic for 'rat presidential candidates...

...the elimination of so many 'rat governors (and flipping of state houses) has changed the landscape considerably.

If I had to guess, I'd suspect there have a few quiet conservations in darkened rooms about what to do about King Stompyfoot.

It's insanity. My minion (who's only been here about three months) comes into my office every day to ask/wonder/bitch about her. A few anecdotes: She'll forward an email to me and ask me to print it and bring it to her. She'll place a document on my desk and ask me to scan it and email the electronic copy to her (despite having a scanner on her own desk).

Yesterday, she asked Minion to edit a policy guide to state that "only the SAC can approve" keeping a government vehicle overnight. He came to me with a question, and the question was this: 'The policy currently reads "overnight vehicle usage can be approved solely by the SAC." How the fuck does she want me to change it, and to what? Isn't that the same fucking thing?'

I want to give him a raise.

181 Was thinking about relatively peaceful black neighborhoods versus the violent ones and what makes them different on the way to work today.

My Upstate NY city is a little small but it has a history of race problems and rioting, like a lot of cities. Most of the black population is located in 3 zones, the SW, the due North, and in the center, Corn Hill.

Corn Hill is the relatively peaceful one, with beautiful historic brick houses [the SW has historic wood ones, so its not that alone] and is where blacks "have always lived", back to early days. The other zones are where the migrating Southern blacks pushed out the ethnic whites, often with a fair amount of violence.

Drugs and property crimes are in every zone, so its not that alone - but gangs are not active in Corn Hill and people tend to own their homes. Police don't need to be as in your face there, and there exists a strong community of long term neighbors and elders.

It might be nice for Republicans to celebrate their control of both houses of Congress by passing a slavery reparation act. Award clear title to 40 acres of federal land by lottery to every black family (defined as one man legally married to one woman and their natural or adopted children). We can figure something out about the mule or equivalent value. Included in the land to be awarded will be ANWR, the low sulfur coal that Clinton locked up in the Staircase/Escalante Monument, every piece of government owned ground that might conceivably be fracked for oil or natural gas and all the grasslands and forests managed by the BLM.

This will drive an eternal wedge of hate between the black urban wing of the Democratic Party and the white gentry liberal wing.

If Obama signs the bill, it will further depress oil prices and boost the economy. If Obama vetos the bill, pull up a chair and grab som popcorn to see the fireworks.

Someone posited the idea that it was because they wanted to "fail."

Consider: had this actually been a case of LEO misconduct, the possibility exists that changes which disempower the police would be made. The Left, however, likes them some Police State, so that wouldn't do.

This way, they reinforce the idea (among certain segments of the population) that "only we care for you" while also (thanks to the riots) having an excuse to seize yet more power.

2. Urban police, to avoid trouble, become more reluctant to confront and arrest black urban thugs.
3. Black neighborhoods become even more dangerous, residents hunker down
4.
Urban hipster neighborhoods become more dangerous, residents flee.
Hopefully not before their white privilege is confronted by oppressed
black thugs seeking to address an historical injustice by
redistribution of their stuff. I won't wish for a good a good beating
of the hipster as well to make up for the whippings the thugs ancestors
endured but if it were to happen I would say it is perfectly

They want the last word, because there is so much push-back on the truth (thank you Prosecutor for coming out strong in the presser!), and it's working. People see how vulgar the protesters are in response to a thug. It doesn't make sense, so the race-baiters have to shout louder to try to drown us all out.

It's not about Hillary! taking credit, it's about blurring the lines of her performance vs. the fictional Hillary's performance.

Just as everyone attributes Tina feye's Palin remarks as Palins, they want people to recall Tea Leoni's accomplishments as Hillary's. See this post's article about people recalling events that never occurred....

Hi aussie!

Krebs was a biochemist and Carnot a physicist; both are known for cycles they elucidated. It's a play on words, combining science with a television series here in the States from the late-'70s, "Battle of the Network Stars", but "epic!", because "science!"

334 "181
Was thinking about relatively peaceful black neighborhoods versus the
violent ones and what makes them different on the way to work today.



My Upstate NY city is a little small but it has a history of race
problems and rioting, like a lot of cities. Most of the black population
is located in 3 zones, the SW, the due North, and in the center, Corn
Hill.



Corn Hill is the relatively peaceful one, with beautiful historic
brick houses [the SW has historic wood ones, so its not that alone] and
is where blacks "have always lived", back to early days. The other zones
are where the migrating Southern blacks pushed out the ethnic whites,
often with a fair amount of violence.



Drugs and property crimes are in every zone, so its not that alone -
but gangs are not active in Corn Hill and people tend to own their
homes. Police don't need to be as in your face there, and there exists a
strong community of long term neighbors and elders.

Posted by: Bigby's Olive Fingers at December 02, 2014 08:19 AM (3ZtZW)"

So you live in Rochester? You poor bastard. I lived in Greece for an unfortunate few years. Good schools. Every other aspect of human existence sucked at a level that had to be measured on a logrhythmic scale. As I recall, there was an attempt to gentrify Corn Hill. I don't know if that is still going on but it would seem that a bunch of relatively well off white people with a significant investment in their real estate there could probably get enough police presence there to kind of keep property crime and violence to a dull roar. It is also the sort of thing that makes the hearts of white gentry liberals soar with hopes of a vibrant multiracial neighborhood proving the vitality of cities so they are likely to dump a bunch of federal and state money into the project of making Corn Hill not be a ghetto shit hole.

One interesting bit of urban trivia about Rochester is the passenger trains that stop there. The trains run east and west between Boston and Chicago. There is no working train station in Rochester so the train drops people off or picks them up in a violent, dangerous part of Rochester in the middle of the night. Since there is not always a taxi waiting for the train, you should really have somebody waiting in their car to pick you up if you take the train. Since the train is not particularly reliable as to when it will get there, the people picking up passengers from the train might have to wait quite a while. In New York State, the only legal way to buy a handgun is if you have a concealed carry license. I have heard more than one person tell me, "Yes, I have a pistol but the only time I ever carry it is if I am picking up somebody from the train."

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
