I get tired of having to deal with some really stupid people on the counter. Worse is when they think they're there to fraternize with the other employees and I'm an irritant in their hours of chat and joking around.

good thing I under went a form of anger management once.

My boss was a real procrastinator about certain stuff. Drove me nuts until one day I became PATIENT and didn't let his dilly dallying around get to me anymore.

69 Reposting my kinda williwed comment:

I'm conflicted about the Starbucks red cups thing and locally there's a petition to get the mall to bring back the Christmas tree.

On the one hand, private biz should be able to do what they want.
OTOH the only reason they ditched the Christmas tree, and businesses don't use the word Christmas anymore, is because if SJW's and their "I'm offended " campaigns.
So if we go by Alinsky rules we should be maling them live up to their own rules. Christians are right to go on counter "I'm offended" campaigns. If they don't then they are basically okay with being marginalized.
(specially the mall one coz let's fave it no one is boycotting an entire mall for Christmas so a campaign is the only solution)

How can they not know that the SJW's and the perpetually offended in our society are in the vast minority?

Which brings up the bigger question: when did we allow ourselves to be controlled by minority fringe groups? And by "we" I mean the rest of the country, since I refuse to let anybody order me around.

Those are pretty good. Their double cheeseburgers are usually good, but it depends on how long they've been sitting. If they're relatively fresh they aren't bad, but if they've been under the lamps for a while then not so much.

What an interesting antique circumlocution. An ancient cliche, you might say.

Back when lots of us had to read very brief "Lives of the Masters" about poets and composers, in the days when things like promiscuity and syphilis weren't mentioned, enlightened souls who had shacked up were always described as having "undergone a form of marriage."

Back then, there were still pieces of inside information to snicker about. Now, a composer's advanced STD are point one in the pre-concert lecture. Unless he's still alive, in which case he's usually there, and it's on display for all to see. And hear.

86 >>I'm conflicted about the Starbucks red cups thing and locally there's a

Same.
However, my feeling is, if a business won't acknowledge Christmas than it is the height of hypocrisy to also try to sell me Christmas presents. It's insulting.

After all these years of Obama I'm leaning toward the Alinsky approach - gotta shout just as loud as the cry-bullies. And were any of these moves motivated by an actual complaint, or is this them preemptively tossing us over for fear of an imaginary, future complaint?

She wants to go to Wisconsin becoz her mom is old and never mind my family no sir

I'm sorta OK with it mostly becoz I think our kid might do better that way. The sorta NOT is becoz I'm in a job with very low-cost health insurance and a meh retirement track right now and do not at all relish looking for another suck-ass job in late middle age. I know I won't find the same combination of benefits anywhere else - it'll be some crappy crap job in a craphole with a crap supervisor.

She's all like "you gotta have an optimistic viewpoint!" Bwahahaha sez I.

Dear Jane,

I've been in such a state of perpetual turmoil ever since giving birth. My child, pronoun 'they', is now 3-years-old. I have been mired in a heinous state of chronic depression because 'they' do not want to play with girl's toys. It destroys me that 'they' might be another white CIS male, and another future agent of the patriarchy. That's just not the type of lifestyle I can support or agree with. 'Their' father has also been deeply despondent over our child's reluctance to conform to our stance and ideals on gender. My husband identifies as gender neutral, and whenever 'Xe' (my husbands current pronoun) witnesses our child playing with toy trucks and trains, it triggers 'Xer' so hard that 'Xe' crumbles into a quivering pile of inconsolable PTSD jitters.




Seriously, this HAS to be fake.

160 Just a quick brain fart of a rant...

There's been a bit of an awakening recently that there may not be a party in our political system for capitalist conservatives. That awakening - the may not be - part, is exactly the problem. There is no 'may not be' - there is only 'there isn't'.

The left has their own analogues: blacks and Jews. The left doesn't represent blacks. It exploits them. There is no other political or social group that is more anti-Zionist, anti-Jewish (religious aspect of Judaism), or anti-Semitic than the left, yet Jews, as a political block, are almost exclusively liberal.

Conservatism and classic liberalism are simply not represented anymore in our political system.

I honestly don't think that most people who identify themselves as being Democrat would identify themselves as being socialist, or even the type of liberal that Hillary purports herself to be.

Our current political parasitic two party system maintains itself by traditional inertia. People vote Democrat or Republican because they have always done so and the Dem and Republican establishments continue to represent themselves as the parties they were in the past - and because "We must preserve the two party system," nothing changes.

It has changed a little with this recent awakening to the reality that somebody or something is being represented, but it ain't us, but it won't change enough to affect any outcome in this next election. And because it probably won't change in this election, it probably won't change in the next election either, because in the end, "the two party system must be preserved."

That's all.

A year later I went Galt, and have stayed Galt. After paying over six figures in taxes for many years, I have paid and owed $0.00 in Federal taxes for the last five years and for the foreseeable future. Go fuck yourselves, ProgTards.

Her work in this area is guided by audience studies, theories of gender and sexuality, and media literacy. Current research projects involve 50 Shades of Grey readers, the impact of social media in fans' relationship with Lady Gaga, masculinity and male fans, messages about class and food in reality television programming, and messages about work in children's television programs."

If they deny the legitimacy of everu tradition and institution of this country as some sort of "conspiracy" againt Persons of Vagina or other victim group of her choosing, then we are not obligated to recognize the supposed source of her authority either.

You don't like the Bill of Rights or recognize the legitimacy of the American concept of individual liberty?
Fine, I don't recognize the legitimacy of a sociology degree, or an academic career built on the manipulation of ambiguous semantic catagories like "racism" or "patriarchy."

In fact, the whole utility of a "University" is now up for grabs, and the fact that you seek to conflate "education" with a credential issued by such a University holds no weight with me. You are a Professor of nonsense at a remedial institution of indoctrination.

Boycott malls? Just watch me. I don't have to boycott malls, since I practically never set foot in one. As in, only when I have to. Get a new phone, see the optometrist. That's about it. Might hit the food court in the mall, if it happens to be around lunch time when I show up.

Ever read that story about Ted Koppel's kid? Druggie/drunk. Had some cushy gove job for a while but quit. I assume b/c he was back on the booze. Loved to frequent real dive bars. Met some guy in one of them and they went back to his place. Dont think it was a gay thing but an alkie thing. Anyway, he stopped breathing and died.

It kills me how hipsters glory the deaths of Dylan Thomas and the characters of Eugen O'Neill.

All those years ago my platoon sergeant, a highly decorated Vietnam veteran, chose me to be on the M60 machinegun because I was one of the smallest men in the platoon, which sounds counterintutive because that gun was a bear to hump even for the bigger guys.

Posted by: torquewrench at November 10, 2015 10:16 AM (noWW6The thing is that after WWII anybody who came out against Social Security or other FDR programs would not have gone very far.WWII is really what is responsible for cementing the idea that Big Government (and Big Business and Big Labor) were all good - because in the 1950's all three flourished and so did America. (The Greatest Generation BTW, with all their virtues, did not see the US government or FDR's programs as evil - they grew up in the Depression and after that trauma and the horrors of WWII, they wanted some guaranteed security.) However, as Walter Russell Meade pointed out the Blue State model only worked well for a limited and unique period in history - when much of the rest of the world was flat on its back and we had little competition - and we were cranking out babies like crazy. It's no longer workable - butfew Americans realize that.

Why does student debt keep going up and up even as it's harder and harder to find a good job with a college degree? And why does it seem that the more aid the government and colleges give, the less it helps? Charlie Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA, shows how politicians and universities have saddled students with dangerous debt...and with little to show for it.

On the one hand, private biz should be able to do what they want.
OTOH the only reason they ditched the Christmas tree, and businesses don't use the word Christmas anymore, is because if SJW's and their "I'm offended " campaigns.





All of these commie bastard companies want to make money off of Christmas without having to mention its name. Screw them and in particular commie Starbucks.

346 I happened to turn on telly and flip thru cnbc. Anyway, Tag Heuer is getting into smart watches. They are selling a $1500 smart watch that runs on Google's platform.
Their angle (vs Apple) is that after two years or more, when your watch is obsolete, you can bring it back and they will replace the innards with classic Swiss mechanical guts and you will have an "eternity watch"
Interesting.
I guess the classic luxury brand sensibility is that when you buy something from them, you'll keep it and be able to pass it down.

On almost any campus, you can find a classroom teaching about white people what 'Mein Kampf' taught about the Jews.

And thus ensure the next generation of anti-Western leftists.

I wonder what the JEF has planned for Veterans' Day? Perhaps it will rain at Arlington and he can use a Marine to hold an umbrella for him.

It disgusts me that the Marxist POS mere presence there desecrates that sacred place.


Churches have reconsecration ceremonies after a desecration. President Poppins would not only have the White House publicly and ostentatiously fumigated, I'd have chaplains from every branch of the service "re-consecrate" Arlington, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and every other sacred military space the dog-eating crackhead befouled.

And I'd finish off by ripping Barky's official presidential portrait off the wall and, on live TV, be shown throwing it down the stairs into the White House cellar.

Winter campout, I slept outside with no tent, pan-fried backstrap in a GI mess kit, made rice and beans from staple state, you know, man stuff. When some later complained that they had barely survived their 24 hours in the woods, scoutmaster said, "Well, Stringer and me, see, we're the old breed..."

429 Saw "Spectre" last night.


Excellent Bond movie - great action set pieces, jaw-dropping visuals and sites (where the hell do they find all of these great places?),

good story, though I'm a bit tired of everything some how tying back to Bond's past ala Batman, hot babes.


NOT REALLY A SPOILER BUT IF YOU DON'T WANT ANYTHING EVEN HINTED AT-

DO NOT READ!!!!!!!!




I'm a bit meh on the ending itself but it provides a

walk-away ending to the Bond story itself if Daniel Craig is truly out.

But, given what Blofeld told Bond makes the ending highly unlikely, and more likely sets up a certain plot sequence for those familiar with the old Bond movies.










Check it out.

A great time at the movies.

430 Yes, I believe Rienzi counts. I read recently that someone was trying to get Die Feen and Liebesverbot staged and recorded (don't remember the details). I think it was Die Meistersinger that was on the simulcast last weekend. I couldn't make it, though it was shown here in town. I saw Der Ring in Seattle in 2013. Also fabulous (though our Brunnhilde got sick and we had to have her understudy, who was not too bad. Fortunately Siegfried was incredible: Stefan Vincke).

Griggs v. Duke Power was a Supreme Court decision, so I believe (IANAL) it can't be changed legislatively short of a Constitutional amendment.
We just need the Supreme Court to pull its head out of its ass and reverse itself on this and O'Connor v. Sullivan (?), the decision that turned all the nut jobs loose on the streets.

Sure.

Loser pays. If we had this as a tort reform, we would limit the suits that would be brought.

It's why it's fought so hard against by the Lawyers(Democrats).

And they could also stop the ability of lawyers to create a "class" and sue as a class which usually results in a bit payoff for the lawyers but practically nothing for the individuals in the class.

and then there's the laws that allow someone to sue for the state. that's when a law or rule is broken and a private person is allowed to sue the defendant for damages in the name of the state. Getting a percentage of the award. On top of the Lawyers fees of course.

Legal immigrants - both of them - tend to be pretty smart, because that's how they got in. We don't (or didn't, at least) generally import dumb asses, because we've got plenty of homegrown ones.
So it's not a stereotype, any more than saying, e.g., physicians tend to be relatively smart. They were selected for it.

Don't block calls - forward them to another spammer. If you have VoIP, there are programs that will let you selectively forward calls, depending on the caller ID number (bogus or not). For example, I forward ALL phone calls coming from exchanges beginning with "1", because there are no such exchanges in the U.S.

Where to forward them? A little Internet sleuthing (e.g., 800notes.com) will let you know who is behind many calls. A little more sleuthing will let you find a legitimate phone number for that outfit. Voila!

I don't think it's just Obama. They will circle the wagons for Hilary as well, although maybe just a tiny bit less (Obama is entitled to the absolute highest level of media shielding).

Hilary would get just a little less protection (hey threw her under the bus in 2008 when Obama was the new leftist darling).

They are loyal first and foremost to leftism, and then to the Democrat party as the most likely agent of that agenda. Even lovable Bernie will be protected if need be.

That's who "Studies" courses are for- low grade, slow-thinking, low-IQ morons (the bad kind)-

who will fall for the Marxist/Maoist/Deconstructionist horseshit taught in these classes.


Imagine Mizzou without any of these "Studies" on campus.

See? No nonsense. Just relatively serious students serious about getting a serious degree then a serious job.


"Studies" majors are simply idiots who go into big debt learning marxism but nothing which will give them useful employment.


But....yeah...white male privilege.

Libs are idiots. All of them. They're too stupid to grasp what's going on, and merely parrot the received wisdom generated by the hard left.


It's the leftists who are driving the bus, and from their perspective, this makes perfect sense.


Bring in a shitload of uneducated Third World types who will be fertile ground for agitation in the second generation. Their presence will bump up black unemployment, which will make them fertile ground for agitation now. Pack colleges with people who have no business being there, and who will learn nothing of any value to anyone else, and will become bitter when they can't get jobs. More fertile ground for agitation.


Do all this while protecting union jobs from the wetback onslaught, so the entire brunt of unemployment falls on blacks, and they keep union support and donations.

623 NEW YORK -- The Clinton "spin machine" appears to be behind a report claiming Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has overruled the finding of Intelligence Community Inspector General Charles McCullough that two Hillary Clinton emails sent on her private server contained highly classified information, investigative author Ed Klein told WND.

"It's not true that Director of National Intelligence Clapper has overruled Inspector General Charles McCullough," Klein said after a careful reading of news articles regarding the FBI's probe of Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state.

The FBI is investigating whether she violated the Espionage Act's subsection pertaining to "gross negligence" in the safekeeping of national defense information, a source familiar with the investigation told Fox News in October.


... It really doesn't matter if Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said it or not, if the material was classified at the time, there still is a crime.

Frankly, I'm getting tired of all of the Hillary email stuff ..
why can't she just go to jail like she is supposed to ?

Liberals believe -- or at least claim to believe -- what they're taught to believe. It doesn't make sense; it doesn't have to.

Twice, I tried to invent a liberal rule.

One was to consider the term "Western" (as in the Old West in the U.S.) racist. My reasoning was that the Old So-Called West had Native Americans who went south to get there, Chinese who went east, Mexicans who went north, and white people who went west, and it's only called "the West" because we're using the white man's historical frame of reference.

The other time was when a local high school, whose teams were the Redskins, considered a change for its nickname. When asked to opine, I said, "Redskins? What about the Blue Bombers down the road? Do we really want those children to self-identify as Bombers? In the wake of Littleton, is it a good idea to keep that name?"

Blank stares and confusion both times.

Not only are they incapable of (or perhaps forbidden from) original thought, they refrain from engaging with any original thoughts from others.
