2 Good Morning Morons. Today is Saturday, November 07, 2015. On this day in 1908 Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were reportedly killed in San Vicente, Bolivia. So they made a movie about it later.

I do not recall there being any "right to not being offended" in the Constitution. This crap has gone to ridiculous extremes now. Personally I think the people who are offended in this case are university officials.

In fact this is one of the things Cruz sold us out on. He voted for it. They like it because it supports their real constituency; which isn't us.

According to the Frederick County Sheriff's Office, 18year-old illegal immigrant Jose Misael ReyesReyes was arrested Thursday after he approached and punched Deputy First Class Greg Morton, who at the time was seated in a marked police vehicle.

27 National Review reports that the IRS has been instructing its agents not to alert taxpayers to the fact that illegal aliens are using their Social Security numbers. IOW, the IRS is deliberately aiding and abetting illegal aliens' identity theft and tax fraud. The article doesn't say how long it has been going on, but my guess would be that it started sometime in 2009. Apparently it's not enough that the IRS knowingly pays out billions of dollars every year in phony "tax credits" to illegal aliens; now the IRS is also helping illegal aliens destroy American taxpayers' credit ratings. But don't worry. Some congressman is reportedly "very upset" about the IRS' treasonous lawbreaking.

37 The Telegraph also reported that investigators are focusing on the possibility that a baggage handler at the Sharm el-Sheikh airport smuggled the bomb onto the doomed Airbus A321-200.

38 Wouldn't surprise me if a baggage handler or somebody else at that airport was responsible. The English newspapers have been reporting that security at the airport was a joke, and that fact was probably noted by terrorists passing through. They may have even done a dry-run to test what they could get away with, much like the 9/11 terrorists are known to have done here.

52 I just read the third article on refugees in northern Europe. The fact that you cannot put them into temporary shelter (tents or thrown up huts) in Sweden as opposed to Lebanon or Turkey is simply beyond the lefties. Plumbing, insulation, windows for Arctic or northern European weather is beyond these "public thinkers". They are demanding that more be accepted into Alpine areas, Arctic winters, and places that do not have any buildings of any kind because they are "empty". They are empty because the areas are unlivable. The reason that it takes much longer to build a livable structure in Sweden or northern Germany (not to mention the cost!) rather than a hut in Mediterranean Turkey is beyond their comprehension. Crossing from Turkey to Greece in a rubber dingy to freeze in the dark in Sweden is simply crazy.

I agree, Vic. But there's one problem: the last two times I held my nose and went LOTE, it was a choice between a squishy, unreliable doofus and Choom Boy. That can make ya break down and pinch the ol' nostrils, I'm afraid.

Naturally, we're not all applying the same standards. There are issues that some consider the "hill to die on," while some don't feel that way. That's understandable.

But there are a few places where I feel compelled to draw the line. TPP is one, and nukes for Iran is another. Carson fails on least one of these test issues (haven't heard him express an opinion on Iranian nukes so far) and Cruz fails on both.

But hey, that's just me.

128 Morning, Glories! Another glorious day to try and figure out why God put us here. Failing that, just enjoy it as much as you can.

I have amended and revised my "Ace of Spades Blog Commenter's Survival Guide" (after only one day) to reflect suggestions made by folks and some things I thought of. I should emphasize this is the "unauthorized and unofficial" guide.

http://bit.ly/aoshq-csg

Special thanks to Mama AJ for two good suggestions. Vicarious lurker Milady Webworker had a good suggestion, too.

Carol asked yesterday morning why one can't use "Blaster." Nope. You can't use "bl@zer" (with an a). As to why, imagine a commenter so awful that its very name is banned on the board. From before my time, but that's what I heard. If you want to talk about the Chevy car, you have to use a workaround.

Lizzy asked if I'd covered the 500 error problem. I did. Check the "Non-ASCII characters" section.

Any additional suggestions, things to add, or better ways to say things, let me know.

Now to catch up on the comments and ignore some morning chores... until the pets get mean.

Nah. Too much of Sinai is covered in rock and mountains. The few flat spots with sand are covered in old land mines from the '56 and '67 wars. The sand sharks wouldn't survive.

I'm serious about the mines though. You can see hundreds of them from the roads. And the mines migrate during sandstorms. I was stationed there in '90 with the peacekeepers, and the damned Bedouin would find mines that had migrated to near their traditional smuggling routes and camel trails. They'd pick them up and carry them to the main roads, sit and wait for our road patrols. Then they'd wave the mine over their heads to get their attention so we could call EOD in. Idiots.

137 Leftover mashed potatoes in a skillet are pretty good, but I've never successfully turned them into potato pancakes just by smooshing them down with the turner. To do that, you have to loosen them up with a little dairy, and beat them with the eggs and a little flour. Then you are in business. Use enough fat to crisp them up.

Made grated-potato pancakes, just now, topped with a provocative sauce of thin-sliced Ark Blacks and some old peach marmalade. And I am "never" supposed to eat "any" of that stuff. I'm laying drain pipe today, and so I'm lying to myself about somehow working off the fruit sugars and carbohydrates. It's a pretty lie. I'm enjoying it.

142 Loyalty oaths.

The requirement to swear fealty to the king, and the increasing numbers of people who refused to do so was an indicator of a pending civil war in England. The details are a little fuzzy but it seems to make sense.

Either you are a nationalist patriot, or you are not.

I don't really care if anyone swears an oath or not since it is too easy to lie; swear fealty and work toward rebellion at the same time. But openly refusing seems like it would be an open statement that you are not in favor of the current government.

I, for one, will swear, pledge, or affirm loyalty to the US constitution which is why I want to see Obama.. . . uh. . that is to say. . . in other words. . . okay, never mind. . . let me get some coffee.

164 What manner of aquatic critter are you angling for? striped bass?

Yes. Morone Saxatilis now, to place them in the perciform family. Used to be Roccus Saxatilis, because people down your way call them rock fish or rock bass.

Before that they were Roccus Lineatus, meaning rock fish what has lines on it. It's all very sciency.

They will be few and far between but I know someone who caught some this week, and my late friend Tony Stetzko caught the world record (73 lbs!) on November 3, 1981, so it's possible that the next Bertha is still out there.

They lured the boy into an alley, I believe, and shot him 9 times as revenge for something the father had done. The father said, "Why didn't they come after me instead? I'm right here - they know where I am."

Before we get art-willowed, here's a few YouTube Reviews. I watch a lot of stuff so you don't have to.

Louder With (Steven) Crowder:
The Real CNBC Republican Debate

Crowder has his good stuff and his mediocre stuff. Lately, IMO, mostly mediocre.

This video is animated in "Clutch Cargo" style, something Crowder has done several times lately. Amusing in its own right, for being so disturbing.

This has its moments. Doesn't really take a full swing at the moderators, not much pro or con the candidates. Just kind of juvenile mockery like old Mad Magazine might've done. So, enjoyable enough, if you go into it with lowered expectations.

191 Ted Talks:
Anders Fjellberg: Two Nameless Bodies Washed Up on the Beach. Here Are Their Stories

Spoilers: They were Syrian refugees trying to swim the English Channel.

While it leans toward the "those poor refugees" side of things, I found this interesting because: informed citizens (hello, Morons!) know there is a huge influx of militant yoots into Europe, a dangerous tide of threatening, low-culture Islamists, including criminals, rapists, and terrorists. But, it seems (seems!) these two refugees, well, one of them, really were fleeing the destruction of their homes in search of a better life.

Also interesting for its glimpses of the terrible conditions in the refugee camps (which are a consequence of bad Euro policies, of course).

Maybe most intriguing sheerly in its detective work on "who were these bodies?"

I really liked this one. I was concerned Hank Green would be on the side of the scaremongers, but this video actually covers the WHO report on what the statistical "increased risks" from red and processed meats really means, compared to the scary headlines and bad reporting, like Time Magazine's cover story on "the war on deliciousness" that I mentioned days ago.

Hank quotes: "Does it mean you should stop eating bacon? I dunno. How much do you like it?" And "If you're eating pounds of hot dogs a day, you might want to cut back." Heh.

Kudos to Hank for this one.

196 Conventional wisdom is taking it in the neck this election cycle. Every time some smart pundit declares Trump dead and Carson a fool, they get their heads handed to them. Look at NYT's smears of Rubion, CNN's attacks on Trump, Harwood's attempted gotcha's on everyone, PolitiKKKo's attack on Carson and the various shots the media has taken at Fiorina (on her cancer, her daughter's death, her job performance and her career path). Look at Krauthammer saying just two days ago in the Examiner that "GOP candidates have overplayed their hands in media attacks" and need we even mention George Will being wrong at every single stage so far of this cycle?

This year seems very different somehow; the GOP candidates are fighting back at the Propaganda Press and the public isn't buying anything the MSM has tried to sell so far.

It was about how the environment in HI had been butchered by the mega hotels. I have that song burried away in my stuff. The giveaway is the lyrics that say they paved paradise and put a parking lot. Took all the trees and put them in a tree museum, et al. It had nothing to do with the "war".

244 I always thought of Big Yellow Taxi (even before i cared about politics) as a typical hypocritical liberal rag. Whining about social issues until the last verse, when it's revealed that the only REAL reason she is bummed is because she couldn't hold onto her man.

We are of like mind, naturalfake. I once heard an interview with a modern "classical" composer who stated that he didn't care if the listening audience hated his piece on the first, tenth, or hundredth performance. He actually wanted an antagonistic relationship with the audience, because Art! should shake you to your foundation. Or words to that effect. By connecting to his listeners easily, it puts him on the same level, I guess. Like I would be on the same level as Beethoven or Brahms.

And I remember as a kid HATING The Rite of Spring the first time I heard it, and ADORING it the second time. So there is something to the idea of The Shock of the New, but it's not The Hate of Your Bullshit.

The fact that I can't remember this douchesmith's name speaks volumes.

"I'm having trouble parsing this, Bruce. Nothing about this particular individual being a rapist. I said nothing about obligations to let them in or anything else like that."

Yes but in your quote you seem to be conflating "fleeing destruction for a better life" with not being one of the bad ones:

"because: informed citizens (hello, Morons!) know there is a huge influx of militant yoots into Europe, a dangerous tide of threatening, low-culture Islamists, including criminals, rapists, and terrorists. But, it seems (seems!) these two refugees, well, one of them, really were fleeing the destruction of their homes in search of a better life."

But that is a false dichotomy. And conflation is one of the primary tools the left uses to push false narratives, "unarmed black teen shot by white officer".

They want you to conflate "unarmed black" with innocence and white with racist. Also it wouldn't surprise me if key details were left out of the bios of these refugees: another liberal trick.

I didn't mean to freak out, sorry, it's just I think that any faint hint or possibility of conflation needs to be examined so that if we ever recover from our current situation, no leftist group will ever be able to cause such large scale acceptance of bad ideas again.


"When you say, "I hope they haven't tuned you," do you mean "turned"? And do you mean me? As if. I'm inoculated for life by Moron Attitude. You don't seem to have read my review very carefully. "

Agreed, again I just freaked out, sorry.

She actually said that was what it was about. She said on her first trip to HI she looked out her hotel window at the mountains off in the distance then looked down and saw hotel parking lots as far as the eye could see.

The later lyrics about the "big yellow taxi that took away her old man" she has not explained but the speculation is that was referring t the Toronto police who had big yellow cars at the time.

271 In an alternate universe I stumbled across something new to me; "Why the gun is civilization."

The logical fallacy is clear in just the title of the piece. Two, maybe three sentences it, the fallacy screams even louder when the author says, (more or less) you have to be polite to me because I have a gun.

This way of thinking is similar to Heinlein's old adage that 'an armed society is a polite society'. Again the fallacy is obvious to anyone who can see.

Using 16th century Japan as an example, it was a polite society because if you were rude, the samurai would cut your head off. Of course, people were rude all the time, and there were wars. The sword didn't make anyone polite, just as the gun doesn't make anyone civil.

A polite society, a civil society comes from within the individual who chooses to be polite and civil and tolerant. Using force to enforce 'civil behavior' isn't civilization. It's just political power being used by the ruler to control the ruled.

Ultimately, that's all there is. Polite is just a disguise that hides the force that will rain down on you if you break the rules. Most of us are polite because it is just easier. When the disorder becomes too great, there will be a correction.

...false dichotomy. And conflation...

Which is why I wrote "it seems (seems!)..." Just because 99%+ of the "refugees" are really a violence-prone invading army doesn't mean there aren't some valid refugees, regardless of how they're handled by other countries.

This particular individual, if you watch the video, was making a huge effort to get somewhere he wasn't exactly welcome, by non-legal means. So, despite his motives, still doing it wrong. Ultimately so wrong, he ended up being fish food.

Anyway, as I said, the most interesting part of the talk was the detective work on finding out who the bodies were. That's about half the talk or less.

Yes is of course the quintessential example of word salad put to music, and you either like the sound or you don't (they are one of those bands that remind me of my older sisters, so there's a real nostalgia to them for me).

The thing I always loved about blues music is that... I accept that I'm not supposed to "get" it, but what I appreciate is that they take this art form, wrap it tightly within a very basic framework, and then express a vast, nearly limitless perspective (call it soul or "the blues" or emotion or whatever) that is unique to each artist, even though the structure is time-tested and familiar to all who hear it.

I have taken to focusing more on female vocalists the last several years, not because I necessarily need to know what they have to say, but because I love the sound.

Without all the details, she was with her Grandmother, and her Grandmother was looking way beyond anything visible in the bedroom.

When she tapped her to ask if she was ok, her Grandmother asked why she had brought her back.
She then named every family member who had passed away, and said that she had seen them, and they were waiting for her when her time was ready.
And that it was beautiful.

She passed shortly after.

But every civil society has a subset of non-civil elements. How they got that way is not critical, the fact that they exist is critical. The fact that the gun or the sword can be wielded by the individual in self defense allows many individuals a continued existence when faced by those non-civil elements, thus maintaining the very basis of a civil society.

300 "The fact that the gun or the sword can be wielded by the individual in self defense"

In early Japan, the samurai cutting off the head of the disrespectful farmer wasn't acting in self defense. He was acting to suppress political dissent.

In Chicago, the gang murder of a rival gang member's son wasn't self defense, it is straight up terrorism.

Trying to make the claim that an individual who has to resort to force to preserve his life somehow preserves a polite and civil society simply points out that he with the most force makes the rules.

Years ago, my cousin had a stroke and a long rehab which didn't bring him back 100%. It was almost 20 years until he admitted to my aunt that it wasn't just a stroke out of the blue, but that he collapsed while in a drug haze and smacked his head on the sidewalk the day before. Luckily, the experience scared him straight and he's fought successfully to become a sober, productive man.

338 BackwardsBoy: I believe it was either Lennon or McCartney that started writing whimsical lyrics that didn't make much in the way of sense....

McCartney, the Cute One. That woud be the second McCartney, after the first one died in that car crash. Had no use for him after his first solo album.

Lennon was the Serious One.

/willowing-tempting ramble ON

Lennon's lyrics, like those of Cat Stevens, mostly impressed me as sad, in a big way. They were struggling and searching for they knew not what. God, of course, and Truth. But they couldn't know that.

Stevens seemed to be finally coming close to something like a spiritual breakthrough, and an artistic one to boot, in Buddha and the Chocolate Box, but then flamed out and went Islamic. Well, whatever works for you, I guess. He quit music and public life. Which was probably good, considering.

Lennon put his frustrations in dramatic declarative statements (e.g. "Imagine") which still pi$$es off a lot of people. For me, it was evidence of his seeking but not quite finding, which really did reflect a lot of that generation, including me, although I was never that lost or lefty.

After abandoning his firstborn and getting sucked in by junk, he managed to clean up his act, hang up his guitar, and dedicate himself to his marriage and son.

I'd like to think that John came as close to peace in that era as he ever would. Maybe because of, maybe despite Yoko. That one sappy album they did before he was gunned down showed those changes, and as my wife and I had just started our own family at the time, I really appreciated his coming back with that message. When I turned on the radio one day to hear "Watching the Wheels," it was really a rare thrill.

Who knows what he might've achieved. He was never exactly the stereotypical leftie folks took him to be; he might've even become more conservative in his old age. Orrr... he might've just become (more of) an annoying old lefty curmudgeon. We'll never know.

I said it was never about him being a saint, or perfect, but that he was a seeker.

Not an ALW fan either, but-

I really like the music to his one big failure-


"By Jeeves"

a musical about Bertie Wooster and Jeeves.



Here's the music:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=co7FCsY-

(remove extra spaces)



And here's most of the play:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTLwJ-

k6kTw&list=PL8suAs1StE-ajzQ3fdTL7eg1qSRKpLmEO

(remove extra spaces)


For some reason Part 3 isn't on YouTube.

It starts a bit slow because the central conceit of the play is that it takes place in a small hamlet church charity show organized by Bertie Wooster.

Things go wrong and then Bertie has to take up the slack by narrating one of his recent adventures.

Stick with it. The play gets much better as it goes along. The songs are good and the whole thing is true to the letter and spirit of the books.

Shame about Part 3 missing though. It has one of my favorite songs.
