Overnight Open Thread (1-19-2015)

Quote of the Day

"An unintended side effect of Paris is the revealing, or perhaps I should say reminder, that the left really has a hard time with this whole 'free speech' thing. Right alongside grand and glorious declarations of the absolute right of free speech are inserted codicils that, if followed strictly logically, simply negate all of their olympian sentiments."

Lives at Home, Blocks Traffic

So the local Boston CBS affiliate tracked down some of the #BlackLivesMatter protestors who blocked Route 93 last week and were arrested. Shockingly they did not appreciate being approached at their homes by the media. Well not their homes - mostly their parents' homes.

Boston-Protester-Block-Route-93-on-ground-620x429 Boston-Protester-Block-Route-93-e1421625600747

And Jim Geraghty weighs in on these protesting rage-whiners:

Storming into bars and restaurants, locking themselves to concrete-filled-barrels and blocking Interstates. this is the progressive grassroots of 2015. This is the Left, capital-L. This is blind fury, lashing out at others for having the audacity to drink beverages, eat brunch, or commute in a manner that the self-appointed arbiters of justice on the Left deem insufficiently down with the cause. There is no actual "activism" here. There is no attempt at persuasion here. There is no thought here. There is only resentment and anger and a desire to lash out at anybody who isn't one of them. There's no agenda or plan to actually improve things.  There's no call to action. It's just rage-whining.

...Notice that there's not a single prominent member of the Democratic Party willing to call out this idiocy for what it is. Notice that the furies are disrupting life in Oakland, Boston, San Francisco and New York City, places where Republicans, much less conservatives, are few and far between. The far Left is making life miserable for the rank-and-file Democrats, and Mayor de Blasio, Governors Andrew Cuomo and Jerry Brown, and President Obama are nowhere to be found, nothing to say.  They can't take the Left on too directly or too loudly.

New Republic Writer Reviews American Sniper, Pans It, Later Admits He Never Watched It

Tobias is subtweeting the new New Republic, which ran this amazingly dumb essay on the new film, American Sniper, by Dennis Jett, a Penn State professor.* I say it's amazingly dumb, because Jett has managed, it seems, to totally miss the point of the movie he's discussing.

...So, The Professor has totally botched this review. I mean, he hasn't even come close to ascertaining the meaning of the film or the motivation of its lead character. How could this have happened? He's a professor of international affairs at a prestigious university! What could have gone wrong, Professor?

"I have not seen American Sniper. But if the trailer is any indication."

Whoa whoa. Whoa.

Whoa.

I used to joke with my film school friends that I didn't need to see a movie in order to have an opinion on it. But I had no idea that you could get to professionally review films without having to actually see them.

Ladies First: The New Equality

Women should be heard first in the classroom, a forum on misogyny at Dalhousie University heard on Thursday. "Men should not be allowed to monopolise these forums," management professor Judy Haiven said.

...Her idea that women should always speak first in classroom discussions and at public events was brought up several times during the forum. Haiven said she already tries to apply this idea in her own classroom. "In the management department, women get to speak first."

But needless to say Professor Haiven's proposal hit strong dissent:

"I think that women of colour should speak first in class," [gender and sexual resource centre outreach co-ordinator, Jude] Ashburn said.

No word on disabled lesbian women of color but I'm assuming they get first dibs on speaking as well as early boarding privileges and all backstage area access.

And of course I can't help but think of this Key & Peele sketch.

Parents Investigated For Neglect For Letting Kids Walk Home Alone

The WaPo reports that Danielle and Alexander Meitiv in Montgomery County Maryland say they are being investigated for neglect after letting their 10-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter make a one-mile walk home from a Silver Spring park on Georgia Avenue on a Saturday afternoon. "We wouldn't have let them do it if we didn't think they were ready for it," says Danielle. The Meitivs say they believe in "free-range" parenting, a movement that has been a counterpoint to the hyper-vigilance of "helicopter" parenting, with the idea that children learn self-reliance by being allowed to progressively test limits, make choices and venture out in the world. "The world is actually even safer than when I was a child, and I just want to give them the same freedom and independence that I had - basically an old-fashioned childhood," says Danielle. "I think it's absolutely critical for their development - to learn responsibility, to experience the world, to gain confidence and competency."

Apparently the Montgomery County CPS disagrees.

The Rip Van Winkle Rifle

A Winchester Model 1873 rifle was found leaning against a tree in Nevada's Great Basin National Park late last year. It was manufactured in 1882 and from all evidence it has been leaning on the tree for over a 100 years.

13-Month-Old Baby Keeps Parents Awake on Cruise Ship, Causing Them to Venture on Deck, Then Miracle Occurs

6 Nobodies Who Turned Into Action Heroes Without Warning

The entire senior crew of the Oceanos immediately fled the ship in nearly-empty lifeboats -- without telling any of the passengers, or notifying rescue personnel that the ship was sinking. Captain Avranas himself tried to flee in a lifeboat three different times, before eventually wandering off to hide beneath a stairwell for the duration of the sinking (again, without ever telling a soul that the ship was in danger).

After a good long while, Moss Hills, Oceanos' on-board guitarist, got annoyed. He felt like the ship was sinking and no one was telling him, so he ditched his guitar and went below deck to discover the Indian Ocean hanging out in the hallway. Recognizing this as a serious issue, he ran to the ship's bridge to report it, only to find it totally abandoned. There were charts and things haphazardly laying around, like in some kind of post-apocalyptic movie.

Considering there were exactly zero officers or experienced sailors aboard the ship at this point, Hills essentially appointed himself captain of the Oceanos. He got on the radio and put out an SOS to a nearby ship, which started asking tons of technical questions about the situation on board. Taking Hill's lack of maritime knowledge as a sign that they were the victims of an elaborate prank, they asked for Hill's rank, to which he responded "guitarist."

A university professor who is an intellectual joke, critiquing a movie he hasn't even seen. Why? Because he has no interest in intelligent discussion, he only cares about promoting his anti-American, anti-military views.

This is why I love the internet. He is being vilified for publishing this stuff, without having seen the movie.

Was nice to be converting pine into sawdust today, under a warm Texas sun. Built some shelving for my local computer tech, on barter for his techspertise.

Bonus, his highly attractive wife is a budding woodbutcher in her own right, and had volunteered to help and learn on the project.

She's got skills, but has a lot to learn about safety. Such as not ever reaching over the blade on a running table saw. Cutting 8' sheet of plywood on the long axis, 18 in. from the fence, so there was no guard on the saw.

You'd think the respective groups would be all "Gender H8 Crime!!!" and "White (gay) Privilege!!!!" Did their bigotry cancel each other's out? Because it seems like Christian bakers get more guff than this particular group of #BlackLivesMatter activists. Same goes for police vs. these bar patrons.

51 This post is actually a thank you to all of you. The reason for the thank you will become clear as you read below.


For several years I have been reading and occasionally commenting on the ONT. During that time I have kept a secret. My beautiful and loving wife lost her long war with cancer today. I kept her cancer a secret because I wanted at least one place in my life where people did not know. For obvious reasons that could not be work, family, or friends so it ended up being the ONT. Unfortunately, many of you know exactly what she and I have been experiencing, and I hope that you will understand my need to have someplace where cancer is not always the topic, or that unstated elephant in the room that everyone carefully does not talk about.


I am not sure why her passing makes a difference, but it does, and keeping the secret just no longer fits. I guess it might be because I have absolutely no idea what I will do now.


Please avoid feeling like there is something you should write, say, or do. I already know your hearts from years of reading comments here. I know you would do what you could, but there really is nothing that I need from you. I have a strong family that loves me and they will rise to this occasion as they always have.


I was blessed with 25 years of sharing my life with a wonderful woman. It was worth every minute and it was worth the pain I am feeling now. I know I am in for a tough year and more. But I will heal, and I will go on. And, I am very relieved that her suffering has finally stopped. When a loved one dies after a long illness the grief process is different from the shock of a sudden death. I have had a long time to prepare, for whatever that means.


Over the years many of you have shared your trials on the ONT and I have added you to my prayers. I know you will do the same for me. God bless.


And, keep smiling, laughing, and kidding around -- because after all, that really is what I am thanking you for doing.

I see it as showing the power of ritual.

Racism is no longer a serious threat in America.

The "Gentle Giant" got shot for attacking a cop, and Garner died because he decide to resist arrest for a something that shouldn't be a crime...but remember the cops don't get to decide that.

But the ritual of fighting racism has been showered with so many up sprinkles that any up and coming lefty wants to be a part of it.

So they have the ritual even though they don't care what the point of the ritual originally was...

@conservativecra: In light of the last several years, is it time to retire "The Aristocrats!" joke and replace it with "The Social Justice Warriors!"? #tcot


On a more personal note, the son of close friends is in the ICU after a heroin overdose Saturday night. He has awakened but has had several complications, so prayers are appreciated as his father and stepmom are the godparents of Son of Crank.

I guess we should also make an issue of male students spreading their legs out in the classroom and manspreading! The horror!

Oh, and the womyn who get to speak first, for no other reason than that they don't have the balls to speak up on their own? Does this apply to womyn with vaginas or does it also apply to womyn who've had the "operation" and are taking hormones?

What about womyn trapped in men's bodies? Should they get to speak first? Do they get to speak before or after the regular chicks?

How about people who are still exploring all of the gender options out there? When do they get to speak?

What about effeminite gay guys. Some of them are pretty girly. Shouldn't they be allowed to speak first with the chicks.

180 The book The Millionaire Next Door talks about the traditional 3 generations to poverty: Gramps works his but off at a fairly menial job and makes his nut, he sends his kids to be dentists and lawyers so they don't have to work so hard, and they send their kids off to get English Lit and puppetry degrees.
Gramps had been giving gifts to the grandkits until he dies, the kids inherit and still pay for the third generation, and when they kick off the remaining family has to squabble over the inheritance because their subsidized lifestyle has led them to make no decent salary, no investments and high standards of living.

A lot of universities don't allow that (for undergrad at least). At my undergrad university, there was a maximum number of unit, unless you got special dispensation. Due to a major that required a lot of classes, a minor with enough classes to be practically a major, a plethora of GE classes, and lots of credit from community college/AP tests, I exceeded the maximum by half a unit...

What got me thinking about that is Hat's list of snowflakes who in other times would be declared insane and locked up for their own good, but now they're supposed to be *celebrated* for being ~different~.

245 I think people like the dreadlocks fellow-son of rich parents -lack introspection. They don't have a job and can't get a job and instead of dealing with that anger and pain in a productive manner they make society into the "other "whom they can safely direct their rage against and get pats on the back from other "Blacklivematter" folks. They want their lives to matter and for a variety of reasons they don't feel that they don't . At least (to them) if you're feeling rage you're feeling something.

I know children of liberals who majored in non STEM degrees but they aren't chaining themselves to barrels in the streets.

As the father of 2 girls who will be graduating in May & December of 2015, I found out the UW system has the first 2 years taking general courses. A 4 year degree is almost unheard of. 5 years is now the average. There are probably Schools out there that are different. These 2 girls have changed their majors at least twice in their first two years.

Oh, sure. It happens more often than you'd think. Films, books, music LP's, you name it. Much easier now with the internet, just watch a trailer a few times, crib other people's opinions etc. Back in the day, you'd haveto rely on just reading the back cover blurb on a book, or hear the single on the radio, or catch the trailer at a theatre. So long as you're good atsounding like you know what you're talking about, it wasn't that hard. Now it would be a doddle. This guy's mistake was being too specific and opinionated.

If his parents enable him, he's not under any pressure to do anything but engage in his stupid protests.

I was going to say I would have done the same if my parents hadn't insisted that I work, but actually I don't think I would have. My parents were old school. Crap, I couldn't hang out with my boyfriend in the basement rec room and listen to Pink Floyd albums without my mom coming down the stairs every 10 minutes to do the wash or "get something" from the laundry room. Had to pay rent - and do chores and go to church and I was expected to call home when I was out late. So I couldn't wait to move out so I didn't have to do those things anymore.

Nowadays, I think a lot of kids stay at home, not just because they're unemployable but because if you can have your boyfriend or girlfriend over for the night, smoke pot and do what you damn well please, well, being at home isn't so bad for them. They can raid the fridge and it's more comfortable and much cheaper than a first apartment. If being an independent adult isn't a priority for them (and obviously it isn't for these little turds), well, its a cushy situation.

288 it also helps if you know what your audience wants to hear:

Das Kapital: a rousing investigation into income inequality and the practical application of economic justice, with footnotes and research into the history, and philosophic underpinnings that have lead us away from the non-materialistic ideals that made Western culture great and left us where we are among the satanic mills of the industrial revolution. Written by the great iconoclast and scholar Karl Marx, and with support from the forward thinking caste breaker Frederich Engels, both of whom have toiled lifetimes to bring this magnum opus to print. A book for the ages, and one to fundamentally change the economy, politics, and nations forever.

You know, if they were studying the great works of Western Civ I wouldn't consider it wasted time.

I know a woman who sent her son to St. John's University in Annapolis and he did their Great Books program. They do Socratic debates in their classes. He got out and worked for a few years at a radio station before going to law school. He credited St. John's with really teaching him how to think and construct logical arguments and debate.

The problem is that at most universities, Liberal Arts has come to mean Womyn's studies, or Marxist deconstruction or reading trendy authors of color and learning that America is Evil. So they come out utterly useless instead of being truly educated.

A person who is widely read, knows how to reason and write well can be taught other skills or will do well if he or she goes back to get a more technical degree. But if all you learn is crapola and yay Socialism and boo conservatives, your degree is worth shit.

One of my profs last year is Che-level left; in one of his other courses one of the required books is actually Rules for Radicals and he does a lot of work for the Minnesota Democratic Farmer Labor Party. I spent almost every week slicing and dicing his rhetoric with logic and facts. Evidently it was his first time having a 40-something conservative as an undergrad student.

311 There was a great article in the Examiner a few days ago why it's easier for a conservative to win.

A 'base" candidate has more leeway to use rhetoric of the Left in the general election, because the base already trusts him.

On the other hand, a stinking RINO tries to sound conservative, but because he doesn't have the instincts, he just fails (like "severely" conservative Mittens, who couldn't come close to making a case why conservatism is inherently more compassionate than liberalism).

The harsh truth of the matter is that only a small percentage of the population - ca. 10, maybe 20% at most - has any business in college.

Thanks to the internet and e-books, you can be well read in all the classics for free.

Also, it can be clear that this is a life-long learning process. Heck, some of the best stuff I've read have been outside of any college or high school course.

For example, I read Cicero and Tacitus on my own, and am currently reading about Hittite trade relations!

Heck, who here has read "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" by James FitzJames Stephens? I highly suggest reading it right after Mills' "On Liberty" to grok the difference between "libertarianism" and "conservatism"... or read Polybius to understand the difference between a republic and a democracy/ochlocracy.

321 I guess I'm a free-range parent. I use to joke that I was the opposite of a helicopter parent, more like a long-distance or hands-off parent. I want my kids to be more independent and to do things for themselves. I do A LOT for them but I let them cross the street or ride their bikes around the neighborhood or down to the school without adult supervision. I guess I'm going to jail.
I was talking to a leftist school teacher, special Ed, the other day. My jaw almost hit the ground when I heard her say that all these kids that think they can't do things or try to play victim, are because of the school system and teachers/aides telling them that they can't or are victims. She makes the kids do things and teaches them independence, I've seen her. Uh, WOW, I could believe what I was hearing. She also talked about homeschooling. You could have knocked me over with a feather.....

It was pretty shocking to me how little open debate there is in seminar. The kids have to be drug kicking and screaming to participate in discussions. Back in the dark ages, my mates and I used to have knock-out drag-out arguments in just for the hell of it.

I've sat down in the past and tried to plot out the ideal high school education, and by Junior year you're going to school half time and by senior year you've only got two classes. I figure algebra, geometry and basic statistics, physics, chemistry, biology, a class on writing and rhetoric, a class on American literature, US history, Government and Economics, self-defense, "life skills", and a class on the US legal system.

I almost think it would be better if high schools killed the advanced mathematics and sciences and just let students test out and graduate early. Focus on the basics that everyone needs to know to be a functioning adult in society.

327 Hey everybody.

Good news bad news. I'm getting good with my fryer and am frying drummettes that IMHO are fully cooked and not shriveled to nothingness due to too much time in the fryer. Also, I finally managed to put on a coating (with a pre-wash in egg yolk) that came out a good consistency.

Unfortunately, my buffalo sauce ain't that great (it's Tabasco's, I should try someone else) and neither was my bare-bones cajun coating (which in fairness is made for fish; it's mealy but at least I finally figured out how to work with coatings).

So all I need are some spicy/smoky wing sauces and coatings that don't suck. ;-)

I had a similar experience. I was talking to a special ed teacher who admitted that of the 40+ kids she deals with, 1 or 2 had actual special needs. The rest were pushed into the class so that teachers and parents could avoid dealing with their issues, or because they got more money from the state.

Pinochet was always accused of terrorizing innocents in his quest against Allende.

The thing is, almost all of the arrests came within a year of the coup. Almost all of the arrestees were somehow connected with trying to fundamentally transform Chile into a commie "paradise" even if they were not directly plotting with Allende's inner circle. While the torture was deplorable, I can not fault Pinochet being thorough and arresting all of Allende's "fellow-goers". After that, Pinochet let things settle down, got the economy on a sound footing, and actually laid the groundwork for a viable mostly-free-market economy and democracy in Chile.

In analogies, it would be as if a "revolution"/coup here resulted in all critical studies professors, Progressive "non-profit" leaders, and community organizers were conveniently taken out and shot outright.

If you are going to do it, you gotta go all the way.

Good for you. Recently John Strossel had an interesting segment on different styles of parenting (free range vs. parents who are absurdly overprotective, perfectionist Tiger Moms vs. "everything you do is wonderful" parents and some kook who doesn't want to "impose gender" on her kids)

The Free Range parents came across as the most sensible.

I remember my father saying to me, "My job is to make sure you can live without me, because someday you'll have to."

In other words, parents have to ensure their kids become self-sufficient adults. Clearly the parents of the Special Snowflakes fell down on the job.

As the father of 2 girls who will be graduating in May December of

average. There are probably Schools out there that are different. These 2
girls have changed their majors at least twice in their first two
years.

Why it's almost as if it's in the universities best interests to
keep the kids there as long as possible. The more years it takes, the
more money they can suck out of them. When I went it was the norm for
people to graduate in 4 years. Almost everyone I knew graduated in 4
years. This is deliberate.

Posted by: nerdygirl at January 20, 2015 12:13 AM (UlDux)


When I went to school, the standard degree was 4 years, and it cost -- all-in with room, board, books, etc. -- about $11,000/year at the University of California. You needed 180 units to graduate and they would throw you out at 200. I graduated in three-and-a-half years with 202 units because of a 6-unit CPA review course.

blustery day in Madison, Wisconsin yet one hundred eighty five thousand people jammed the
Capitol Square to protest Governor Scott Walker and his Budget Repair Bill
..."

Did 185,000 people really turn out on 12 March 2011? There is no mistaking Andersen's number; he spells it out.

Somehow, I recall the number being very much closer to one sixth of Andersen's number.

Does Research Adviser Glenda Jones, Ph.D. (as per the .PDF) have any comment on this number?

My ideal curriculum (either high school and/or college) would include a course in elementary logic (affirming the antecedent, denying the consequent, and all that), civics, essentials of credit (the smaller the font on a credit agreement, the more important the information contained therein), and critical reading. By the last I don't mean Commie crapola that masquerades as "critical thinking," but rather learning to really read critically, with examples taken from current news media.

For example, on a recent thread we had the leftists bleating that there were many fast food restaurants where the population was obese, from which they were inferred that the density of such restaurants caused the incidence of obesity. But the data equally well admit of the converse proposition, that entrepreneurs cited the restaurants there because of the population density of dumbshits who would likely patronize such restaurants.

That sort of thing.

1 tbsp flour until combined, cook for about 1 minute
whisk in about 1/2 cup Franks or Louisiana hot sauce, mixture should thicken. If you like it spicier, add some habanaro sauce too.
Add some honey to taste
Add pepper to taste.

Pour sauce over hot wings and toss to coat. Sauce should stick to the wings in a nice thick coat. If it's too thick for your tastes, cut back on the flour a bit next time.

The credit stuff would fall under both Life Skills ("What is a credit score and why is it important?") and The US Legal System ("What happens when you declare bankruptcy?").

Logic could probably be folded into the writing and rhetoric class, with logic in the fall and rhetoric in the spring, and writing throughout to practice both.

Frank's Red Hot.
no, it's not very hot, but has awesome flavor. I believe it's what the original wings inventor used, in fact.
Just 1/2 that, 1/2 butter usually works fine.

380 Alex, I won't be taking any classes that cost $. I thought of you because I got an invitation from your last school to take online math classes for a certificate but not credit at a reduced price.

One option I'm weighing right now is a free course to gain certification for teaching online courses. I tried taking that class last semester, but dropped out because something about the approach I'm supposed to learn just fills me with revulsion. The assignments and expectations and rubrics are hidden all over the online site like Easter eggs, and I hate feeling like I'm missing something important. I'm apparently supposed to conduct my own online courses that way, and I just can't bring myself to do that to my students!

-------Bullshit. The Japanese would strap snipers up in the trees. You could kill them and they wouldn't even hit the ground. They would also commit mass suicide attacks where sometimes as many as three thousand Japanese would die, and a whole crap load of Americans would die. A bullet from a sniper would kill you just as dead as a bayonet from a suicide charge would. A soldier in a foxhole shooting you dead is no different than a shooter in a tree or an eighty five millimeter mortar landing on your head. They had snipers, we had snipers, all God's children had snipers. Russians, Brits, Chinese, Germans, Filipinos, and even the damn Scandi's had snipers. Stupid f*ckstick.

427 Oh, before I forget -- Bay Area Morons should be advised that Ano Nuevo is doing fundraisers again -- and that means they're doing special Elephant Seal access dealios. We've been on them some years before (they went on hiatus), and they were incredibly awesome.



For those unfamiliar with these beasties -- they can be 16 feet long and weigh 5400 pounds......which makes them only 20 inches shorter and approximately the same curb weight as a 1961 Lincoln Continental. They have absolutely no regard for humans -- you're supposed to keep a 25-foot separation, but when one was crashed out too close the boardwalk, rangers had us pass considerably closer. What they do have is an intense interest in each other -- on one of our previous special-access days, we had to backpedal rapidly when one up the beach spotted his rat-bastard rival in the water and went barreling through the area where we'd been standing to get at him.



If you've been to one of the regular days and were bored about standing on a hill and looking down on seals, the special-access events are quite different and -- while every experience is unique -- we seriously enjoyed when they were doing 'em.

There are still plenty of women who appreciate chivalry and (in my experience) simple manners. The womynz you are referring to will never, ever be happy with the way a Man acts towards them. Not too tough to figure this one out as a guy.

I didn't need it, cth - he did. He just knew I would be up called me.

He said the 5 gallons cans at Lowe's or Wal-Mart are $40, but we finally found a gas station near the airport at $3.99 gallon.



Bad part is we drove around for an hour - I thought we'd be gone ten minutes.

I used to buy it when I ran out of heating oil 20 years ago and knew where to get it, but not anymore.

464 Lindafell, I'm old, sixty two, and my parents raised me to be polite. To treat all women with respect, open doors, allow them in front of me in lines, light their cigarette (I know), if you take them out on a date, the man pays. Respect. Not to treat them as inferior, but to treat women as something special. I'm having a hard time putting it into words. Like I treat my wife. I worship the ground she walks on. She is my equal in our lives together. But I always open her car door, or any other door she chooses to walk through. I will always carry anything for her. She's not fragile, she's a tough old broad, but I will always treat her like a lady. She deserves that kind of respect from me. I be old school, I guess.

All heaters are dangerous -- and they all have the same risks.....which people blithely ignore on a routine basis. Around here (Silicon Valley, CA -- some of the best climate in the US), one of the things for management is to be careful about women (yes, it's usually women) using space heaters under the desks in their cubies. 'Cause they'll put 'em there and eventually bury them in piles of combustible materials.

Howdy, howdy!

Didn't spin the mill today, but I did get a 1/8" collet. At the shop ( http://tinyurl.com/6yhmnu ), I checked the new one and had the same damned "inspected by #38" tag fall on the floor -- whereupon I related my experience of looking at the 1/8" box, the 1/16" collet, and the inspection tag, which got them chuckling. I then noted the wide variety of tools that had a 1/8" shank while noting that 1/16" collets were as useful as tits on a boar.....then, they were laughing outright.

I can second that for the LA area. I've done a ton of contract jobs that sent me into cubicle seas to change out PCs or install something after hours. The space heaters are always found in cubicles with artifacts indicating habitation by a female, typically post-menopausal.

The amount you can with little effort learn about these people by examining their cubicle is remarkable.

495 When I was young and foolish and toolin' down Hwy 1 near Hearst Castle one day, I noticed a bunch of cars by the side of the road and decided to see why they were stopped. Turned out there was an elephant seal colony down on the beach. This was before the Piedras Blancas rookery was officially recognized and access blocked save for a respectfully distant boardwalk. People just scrambled down to the sea and walked alongside the behemoths. I will always remember that day fondly but be kinda glad the state wouldn't let me do it again.

No worries. One of the things that burns my ass about this sort of event is that the notifications are handled through cultural channels that deliberately exclude non-leftists. And, then, when all the entitled lefty douchebags hog all the tickets, they turn around and say, "oh, the conservatives aren't concerned about righteous causes like busing East Bay schools to visit elephant seals."

As if THEY were. I guarantee you that 99 and 44/100 of the people who attend the event will be there more for the expanded access than for whatever rinky-dink cause they dreamed-up to throw it.

So, spread it far and wide. In my experience, these events have been fantastic animal encounters.....and if you're really, really, really lucky -- you might just see some Berkeley socialist run over by a 5000-pound non-Vegan.

People like the Author, over credentialed and incapable of actual intelligent though tend to have difficulty navigating the complexities of the average toddlers daily life.

Once life gets past a tiny fist full of Cheerios, a diaper and an afternoon nap, their heads just can't stay with the pace.

I seldom read Kos, as it strikes me as the moonbats' own version of Tepid Air. Pandering to the knee-jerk reactions of your base doesn't impress me.

But yeah, this one moves the needle on the Stupid Meter up several notches. Remember that these are the same people who blindly buy all the assertions spewed out about Choom Boy. They don't need no steenkin' college transcripts, passport records or financial/work history on the guy, because he's a Minority Hee-ro and Historic First. Walker, on the other hand, damn well better not go for the metaphors, 'cause he's trying to deceive the public!

Sadly, the comment first, think later disease is not confined to the Left. It appears everywhere, and is a sign (as if anyone needs to be reminded) that ideologues lose their grip on reality when confronted with an opposing view. Who needs to think when you can spit out a slogan?

It's some of his other tricks that bother me. Think: amnesty.

Personally, I'm thinking it would be nice if, just for once, we who vote for/donate to/work for political candidates got up on our high horses and demanded candidates who actually believe in some of those old-fashioned concepts (you know, like obeying the law, keeping government small and unobtrusive, being fiscally responsible) that we do. Supporting some dude just because he's less repulsive than the rest, and may agree with us on a single issue, has gotten old.

560 Interesting listening to NPR this morning. A couple of interesting stories.

1. The Presidents call for increased taxes. McDonough was asked if Obama's call for tax increases was like the Republican votes against Obamacare (must dig at the Republicans if talking to a Democrat). McD. gave the usual talk of focusing on the Middle Class.

The bizarro world was entered when McD. was asked if perhaps they would be working with Republicans for broader tax reform where they might be able to reach agreement. McDonough then said id effect (not direct quotes) "We would welcome any ideas the Governor Romney may have. If Mitt Romney has any ideas we would like to hear them."

They're still running against Mitt Romney. Was that their last political win?

565 NPR part 2.

Another story this morning was focused on the heavy European corporate investments in the southeast US and how the region could be affected by the European economic doldrums. this followed a report on the dire straights of Europe and on how there is not much they can do about it. (Limit of effectiveness of future quantitative easing, threat of deflation, etc.)

Eventually they get around to a statement from an economist on the danger to the southeast due to global interdependence. The economist trots out the well-worn statement that we should all be concerned since if "Either Europe or the United States sneezes the other may catch a cold."

In light of the rest of the reporting on the conditions in Europe, sneezing? Haven't they already been sneezing. Economic thought completely independent of any consideration of reality.

Using that logic, we might as well vote for Mutt Romney. He has experience as a candidate, after all, and I'm sure there's at least one issue on which we all agree.

I haven't been there in thirty years. It used to be a big hole in the ground surrounded by bars and streets where local aindians and miners could fight over the three or four girls in town. Now, I'm sure it's at galleries and cappuccino shops with an Orvis store mixed in for variety.

638 Its after 8 so I'll go ahead and start now.

Good Morning Morons. Today is Tuesday, January 20, 2015. On this day in 1649 Charles I went on trial for treason and other high crimes. The logic of that charge escapes me. The real reason he went on trial was his continued fight with parliament over taxes and his belief in the absolute power of the Monarchy. He was of course found guilty and executed 10 days later on the 30th. Remarkable how history repeats itself here in America except instead of a strong parliament to reign in an absolute monarch we have a congress of pussies and loyalists and the monarch runs wild.

639 The Islamic State terror group may be making inroads in Afghanistan just weeks after the U.S. ended its 13-year combat mission, with a former Guantanamo Bay detainee said to be involved in the recruiting effort.


How many US soldiers died to free this shithole only to give Obama a chance to let this group of savages in. Yes lets let them all out of GITMO. This is why I am so totally against nation building. Time and time again it has been demonstrated that freedom can not be established by external forces. The people must want it enough to do it themselves. And a heavy contributor to these failures is a Democrat administration cutting off the country at its knees after the Republicans settles it. And in modern history that never changes.

643 The corrupt Obama administration once again shows their disdain for the law. They say listing of Cuba as a terrorist supporting country does not prevent them from establishing diplomatic relations with them and opening an embassy. Technically it doesn't but it absolutely prohibits transactions between Americans and Cuba (which I am sure he will ignore). He has "asked" the DOS to review Cuba's inclusion in the list of terror supporting countries. I am sure "review" means take them off the list.

Lynch's office appears to have let self-professed criminals walk free in exchange for their cooperation with her office, watched impassively as they committed further crimes, and intentionally kept the victims of those crimes in the dark denying them their chance to seek tens or hundreds of millions of dollars in restitution in direct contravention of federal law.

2 - They have devoted a lifetime to believing (and teaching others) that the USA is nothing special and is in fact a despicable country. They cannot fathom the patriotism of someone like Kyle, and believe people like him are ignorant and gullible. (as well as those of us who like the film I suppose)

804 ISIS jihadists publicly executed 13 teenage boys for watching a soccer match.

The young fans were reportedly watching an Asian Cup match between Iraq and Jordan on TV last week when they were caught by the militants in the Iraqi city of Mosul, which ISIS, or the Islamic State, controls.

The group of teens was executed in public by a firing squad that used machine guns, according to Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently, an activist group that exposes ISIS atrocities.

830 about this taxing the "rich"

we have an autistic son. We are hopeful but its pretty clear he will need some sort of financial assistance for his whole life and we will not live for ever

we know the responsibility will at some point fall to his brother and sister

we are determined to make sure we at least have the financial part covered for his lifetime so they don't have to worry about that


we are saving like crazy for him. Which will be taxed like crazy. So that eventually he will have to rely on the state that is taxing us to death

that is fucked up

Just say you hate the movie - no need to attempt to justify it w/a minor detail.


According to the Left, though, only the Right "hates." The Left cannot simply say they "hate" something, they have to justify it (usually with idiocy). That way they can say they're the subtle, nuanced ones who see the layers...not just the obvious haters that they are.

As to the Great Fake Baby Controversy of 2015:

Meh. I didn't notice the fake baby. At one point, I thought for a microsecond that BC might not be holding the baby quite correctly.

The observant and perceptive Mrs naturalfake said she noticed the baby was fake and wondered why but it didn't bother her at all and she was right back into the movie.


I guess h8ers gotta hate.

And this gives the anti-American Left an alinsky-handhold they can use to mock the movie,

and try to dissuade viewers.
