Overnight Open Thread (12-14-2015)

Quote of the Day

Last month Islamic terrorists slaughtered 130 innocent men and women, the youngest aged just 17, in a series of vicious attacks across Paris. More than 40,000 government leaders, negotiators and activists subsequently arrived in Paris to decide what the global temperature will be for people whose grandparents haven't been born yet.

If you want to get an idea of exactly where political priorities are in 2015, the above paragraph is a pretty good place to start.

...Appropriately enough, the climate change conference kicked off with a speech from murderous Zimbabwean tyrant bastard Robert Mugabe, who isn't exactly unfamiliar with large body counts. That includes his 91st birthday party earlier this year, which featured a feast of buffalo, impala and a baby elephant.

"Unless current trends are reversed, disaster stalks planet Earth," Mugabe told the conference, before presumably heading for the French capital's Parc Zoologique to see if it had a drive-through.

-- Tim Blair

Quote of the Day

And they're not exactly covering themselves with glory protecting America from its current president's excesses, either. But then, as Glenn wrote yesterday, the ACLU's current motto is, "We only protect constitutional rights we like from people we don't like. And we don't like guns, and we do like Obama, so suck it, gun nuts."

-- Ed Driscoll on the worthlessness of the ACLU

Quote of the Day

"On a related note, my family hasn't suffered a single case of scurvy since we introduced Margarita Fridays more than three years ago."

-- Steve Green

Mark Steyn: The United States Senate is a Farce of a Parliamentary Body

So Mark appeared at a Senate hearing on climate change and after being admonished beforehand "to respect the decorum of the Senate" was shocked at the lack of any decorum and sheer rudeness of how it was run.

In the US Senate, at least on Tuesday, senators wander in and out constantly. Their five-minute "question" sessions are generally four-minute prepared statements of generalized blather followed by a perfunctory softball to "their" witness, after which they leave the room without waiting to hear the answer - and then come back in when it's their time to speak again at which point the staffer feeds them the four-minute blather they're supposed to be sloughing off this time round. The video doesn't capture the fakery of the event because under Senate rules the camera is generally just on whoever's speaking. Whether this meets the "decorum" of the Senate, it certainly doesn't meet the decorum of life; it's a breach of the normal courtesies - and, frankly, Americans are the chumps of the planet for putting up with it. Since the 17th Amendment, senators have been citizen-legislators like any other, and so their contempt for the citizenry who have graciously consented, at their own time and expense, to appear before them demonstrates a profound misunderstanding of the relationship.

...So by the time Senator Ed Markey turned up, I'd had enough of it. Markey is the Massachusetts guy (whom I discussed on the radio with Howie Carr yesterday afternoon) and he began by comparing Rear Admiral Titley to Galileo - at which point I threw up my arms. I would have let this twaddle go, except that Markey then went on to insult the three scientists on my right. And, as with so many of the staffer-insulated ignorant bullies of the Senate, he did so with no intention of letting them respond. Dr Judith Curry is a very brave woman who has withstood an extraordinary onslaught from the ugly misogynist types that climate alarmism attracts. She was not cowed by this know-nothing senator and she wished to respond, as she indicated discreetly.

Markey ignored her. Again, we're way beyond the rules of the Senate here. In the rules of life, a gentleman does not insult a woman and then stand on parliamentary dignity to deny her a reply. If that's the "decorum of the Senate", then Senator Markey puts the dick in decorum. Nevertheless, with characteristic pomposity, he sought to use the Senate's crappy rules to prevent those he'd abused from responding to his crude insults

CNN At Work

This is CNN's Web Page on Friday Morning. Paris, California, and Trump are all just different faces of hate apparently. Note however that the first two were actual terrorist attacks with a death toll while the last is merely an assumption on the part of CNN. And remember that the most important aspect of all of these according to CNN is how it makes American Muslims feel.

What Happens When a Town Government Gets Too Big For Its Tax Revenues?

Well you get Pagedale, MO where the city government has made nearly everything a fineable offense. And then made it difficult to pay the fines so the residents rack up late fees.

Pagedale is 1.19 square miles of St. Louis County. Approximately 93 percent of its 3,000 residents are African-American and about 25 percent live below the poverty line. There is not much of a tax base for their government. But supposed necessity does not confer constitutionality on Pagedale's decision to budget on the assumption of a steady blizzard of capricious fines.

Pagedale residents are subject to fines if they walk on the left side of a crosswalk; if they have a hedge more than three feet high, a weed more than seven inches high, or any dead vegetation on their property; or if they park a car at night more than 500 feet from a street lamp or other source of illumination; or if windows facing a street do not have drapes or blinds that are "neatly hung, in a presentable appearance, properly maintained and in a state of good repair"; or if their houses have unpainted foundations or chipped or aging layers of paint (even on gutters); or if there are cracks in their driveways; or if on a national holiday - the only time a barbeque may be conducted in a front yard - more than two people are gathered at the grill or there are alcoholic beverages visible within 150 feet of the grill.

All this and much more is because Missouri's Legislature, noting excessive reliance on traffic tickets, put a low cap on the portion a community could raise of its budget from this source. So now 40 percent of Pagedale's tickets are for non-traffic offenses.

Pagedale residents now have a case before the Supreme Court arguing that the arbitrary nature of the various ordinances is a violation of Due Process.

Kurt Schlicter: Being a Man and Having a Traditional Family Is a Rebel Act

And, as if to infuriate the cultural gestapo even more, Jim and Cam constantly ask "What Would Ward Cleaver Do?" Using the forthright, capable, and spectacularly mature father of the Beaver as a touchstone is waiving a red state cape in front of a blue state bull. Our culture has been telling us for half a century how the Ward Cleavers of the world are a punchline, that they're dull and unforgivably uncool. But look around at what repudiating Ward has wrought upon our society - can anyone seriously make the argument that America would not be massively better off with more males channeling him by supporting their own families and raising their own kids without leaving it to Uncle Sam and Team Taxpayer to clean up the wreckage of their refusal to grow up and act like men?

By the way, the book points out that Ward Cleaver was a Navy SeaBee in World War II. Back then, pretty much every man did a hitch in the service, and that certainly had a huge maturing effect on the entire generation.

...That's why being a man - not merely bearing the physical accoutrements of maleness but actually being a man - is a rebel act. By being man, you reject the role the liberal elite has prepared for you, that of a weak, confused manchild unfit to be sovereign over your own destiny. Taking care of your family yourself repudiates them. Defending your family (especially when you exercise your fundamental Second Amendment rights) repudiates them. Raising your children as strong, independent Americans instead of spoiled, crybullying snowflakes, repudiates them. Just being normal repudiates them.

Maybe Ward Cleaver wouldn't put it this way, but I will: By choosing to grow up and be a man, you tell the liberal elite to go to hell.

29 Love the headline on the CNN webpage:

"Obama lauds slavery's end; slams Trump's 'bigotry'".

From the Liberal Stylebook:

Rule One: ALWAYS closely juxtapose a reference to slavery or Nazism with any headline about a Republican.

Rule Two: NEVER EVER mention that the Army of the Potomac was a Republican army and Lincoln, who freed the slaves while leading that army, was a Republican.

Rule Three: ALWAYS be a DemonRat politician ball-gargler no matter how communist, ghey, retarded, or imbecilic that DemonRat politician is.

(I may be paraphrasing Rule Three a little bit).

88 So, being that the weather was reasonably nice (though cool), I decided to play with my relatively new gnurler. Last week, while running around, I managed to pick up some cylindrical aluminum for this purpose.



So I open the garage door and discover the fiancee has tossed all the boxes for Christmas lights and buffoonery into the middle of way to get to the lathe. So I pack all that up and stuff it in the attic (where all the stuff normally lives when it's not in the front yard). Then I pick up all the stuff knocked over when she threw the boxes there. Then I make my way to the tool tower (I've got a bunch of bench tools permanently mounted to 2'x2' squares of 3/4 plywood. They stack up in a rack I built. When I want to use one, I just pull out the tool and clamp the plywood to the top of a table).



So, I excavate my way to the lathe, pull it out, pull out the bags for tooling and chucks. Mount the 3-jaw, note that I can't find the chuck key (it's an 8mm square). Decide to cheer myself up a bit by spinning it before looking for the chuck key -- doesn't spin. Tear down the head of the lathe and figure out the reason why it wasn't spinning (Hi-Low lever wasn't properly setting the drive belt when set to Low). Rebuild the lathe. Decide to just make a chuck key -- how hard can it be? Start setting up the mill.....notice it's getting dark.



So I spent all day puttering around and never actually got to play with the gnurler.

100 One Person, One Vote, but Some Votes Are More Equal Than Others

Originally, states were free to re-district as they wished. Some states, such as California and Nevada, followed a "Federal Plan" for their state Senates. For example, each county in Nevada had one state Senator regardless of population; in another case, Los Angeles County had only one of forty state Senate seats despite holding 1/3 of the state's population. This was struck down by the Supreme Court in the 1960's under the mantra of "one person, one vote". But just what does that phrase mean?

This is the mostly untold story of Ferguson. How completely dysfunctional St. Louis county municipalities are. The recently passed law says they can't get... what is it? 40% of their revenue from traffic tickets?


Residents of these shitty little cities didn't mind traffic tickets, because they disproportionately affected people from outside the municipality (after all, if you lived there you knew where all the speed traps were). Free tax money, in other words. So if they now have to get it from the residents, we're likely going to see some political change.


Maybe.


Some of these crappy little townships sooner than other, depending on how dumb (read black Democrats) the residents are.

The DemonRats held the slaves until the Republicans freed them, then they lynched them, tormented them with the Klan, and tried to deny them equal rights until the 60's, when they finally figured out a way to lock blacks back into the plantation. With Free ShitŪ.

Even now Planned Parenthood murders half a million black babies a year.

The sycophantic press goes along with the DemonRats' evil propaganda, and blacks vote for them 96% of the time.

147 Eating lettuce is more harmful to the environment than eating bacon.

"Eating lettuce is over three times worse in greenhouse gas emissions than eating bacon," said Paul Fischbeck, professor ofsocial and decisions sciences and engineering and public policy. "Lots of common vegetables require more resources per calorie than you would think. Eggplant, celery and cucumbers look particularly bad when compared to pork or chicken."

Fischbeck, Michelle Tom, a Ph.D. student in civil and environmental engineering, and Chris Hendrickson, the Hamerschlag University Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, studied the food supply chain to determine how the obesity epidemic in the U.S. is affecting the environment. Specifically, they examined how growing, processing and transporting food, food sales and service, and household storage and use take a toll on resources in the form of energy use, water use and GHG emissions.

On one hand, the results showed that getting our weight under control and eating fewer calories, has a positive effect on the environment and reduces energy use, water use and GHG emissions from the food supply chain by approximately 9 percent.

However, eating the recommended "healthier" foods -- a mix of fruits, vegetables, dairy and seafood -- increased the environmental impact in all three categories: Energy use went up by 38 percent, water use by 10 percent and GHG emissions by 6 percent.

One thing the cd did is it freed artists from the 45 (or so) minute limit on an album. You could essentially make it any length you want, and of course not subject fans to the dreaded "double album" which often peters out long before you got to the end up side B on album 2.


I do appreciate though, artists who want to try to keep some of that structure. You know, record around 40 minutes, and have something of a side A and a side B.

Your comment reminds me, just about a year ago, a new supermarket opened up really close to me: Northgate Gonzalez, a supermarket chain that pretty openly caters especially to California's, er, newest arrivals.

I went in once because I wanted to see if they had any more of a chile and salsa selection. It was slightly larger but still a bit thin.

And I must say, the store was beautiful. NG took a relatively dilapidated abandoned building that had gone through a ton of tenants since it was built in 1971, and finally given it the upgrade and clean-up it deserved. Everything was clean, reasonable prices, and the employees seemed cheerful and ready to help if I had asked them for it.

BUT... I also admit: having every section sign printed in large Spanish, with small English print below? Big turn-off for me. It just seemed to say to me "Sure gabacho, you're welcome here, but we're here for our own people first." Kind of alienating, again just IMHO at least.

277 BurtTC, a few years ago I finally started really seriously listening to KKJZ as well as their Blues music program.

Long story short, I've been adding more jazz to my collection, sticking mostly to the all-time classics but still, really good stuff. Getz/Gilberto, Vince Guaraldi, King of Blue, Birth of the Cool, Coltrane's A Love Supreme.

Was quite surprised how much Bitches Brew agreed with me, have read a lot about how it alienated a lot of classic jazz lovers back in 1969 when it first came out.

291 Afraid I have to agree with that English preacher calling Islam satanic.

I have believed for a very long time that Islam is Satan's specific earthly reaction to Christ's sacrifice on the cross.

Nothing is more directly opposite the Christian message than Islam, nor is any doctrine more damaging to humans as practices as a governing philosophy. Just the first cousin marrying insanity is bad enough, but you add the psychotic "direct orders" from their god himself to murder or subjugate all infidels? Their god is clearly Satan.

Why impeach?

That ship sailed a long time ago, and even if you are able to get the articles of impeachment through the House, there is no way that 13 Democrats will vote for his impeachment. All that happens is that the President then doesn't have that sword hanging over his head and goes full Dem retard with the government, see Billy Jeff in 99-2000.

Remember that Clinton's impeachment fired up the Dem base in 2000 turning an election that should have been easier for Bush into a nail biter.

355 Hugh Beaumont (Ward Cleaver) was actually a Methodist minister, and both Tony Dow and Jerry Mathers said he was a second father to them; a real good guy to the bone.

If you want to see him in an odd movie, check out "The Seventh Victim." It's a 1940s flick (produced by Val Lewton!) about a satanic cult of pseudo-intellectuals. It's also Kim Hunter's first film.

BTW, it's really bizarre. And the ending is subtle and disturbing.

He was a cool poster here. I liked Ira. Cooth thinks that Ira sent him a virus through a link and messed all his shit up, Big Time.

Ira protests, claims his innocence and has taken it out on the rest of us every now and then.

I don't get it.

Posted by: Slapweasel (Cold1), (T) at December 15, 2015 12:39 AM (OQ9R7)



I actually liked Ira, as well -- even though he got snarky with me from about 6 months prior to the May meltdown. I'd engage him in conversation and such. Then came the day he snagged control over my email account, which he probably thought of as a practical joke you could play on someone with no major ramifications. Being that the bulk of my assets are financial and everything was linked via email, I couldn't take it that way.



I essentially live-blogged it and at some period, jokingly suggested that Ira was the perpetrator -- at which point he went nuts. After a while, he started getting banned on threads -- but I captured subsequently-deleted posts from him using information that clearly had come from my inbox or from the inner workings of my ISP account. I was still talking to him on the blog and he was being banned on a case-by-case basis.....until I came to a "locked-room" mystery in stuff I was trying to work with that meant he had to have dropped a keylogger on me. I probably have a copy of the exact link, but it's in the "quarantined disks" zone.



I, then, burned down everything connected to the internet in my house, quarantined it, and rebuilt using new gear and shut off all internet access to all my accounts. On the day I shut down my Discover Card, they informed me that my account had been accessed electronically the day before -- I hadn't had a functional computer for a week.



Because I saw (and copied) the banned posts before they disappeared, because I've traced footprints through the wreckage of my electronic life, I'm 99-44/100% sure that Ira tried to steal my email addy, dropped malware on me, and was pawing through my undies online. I have a roadmap as to how I could turn that into legal evidence and flesh it out further.



The problem is -- what actions lead to outcomes with improvement? I'm out a bunch of money and a bunch of time and a ton of aggravation. I'm thinking of leveraging what I've had to learn about internet security in a few ways. I had been very concerned about other members of the Horde being hurt by this guy, but since he got his butt perma-banned just one step short of Sportcoat, that's far less likely. What to do?



But, Slap.....don't for a second think my problem with Ira wasn't serious, specific, and grounded. He does things to other people that might be minor if someone did them to him.....but is unworldly and fails to see obvious significant consequences. He thought it was a lark to try to seize my email; he felt it was a joke if he could tag me with a keylogger; he thought it would be funny to log-in to my financial accounts; he'd probably think it was hilarious to pull the control rods at San Onofre and have the reactor go critical.



He's dangerous not because he isn't pleasant, or witty, or charming, or glib. He's dangerous because he doesn't consider the harm he does to others -- and you see that each and every time he tries to "break in" to the Horde.

He also thought that it was cute to email threats to the fiancee from my email account -- saying stuff like "don't help Cthulhu or else".

Take a look at YOUR QUOTED post of mine from May 15: "Sweetie -- I'm not sure that the threat to the fiancee even rises to the level of a crime.....and "attempted identity theft" is far less than "actual identity theft" which, in itself, is less than "identity theft that will put someone behind bars." I'm hoping to meet with a detective tomorrow to figure out which what is where.
And it should be noted that any newcomers are obvious suspects. Just because." -- Your own citations make you look like more of a clown.



And you want the ultimate clown? -- the @missing@476 rant spells your nic correctly. You used to know this. If thoughts and prayers for your Alzheimer's are important to you, come back and say so -- and even with the harm you have done to me I will pray for you....but we must both be in the same reality.

483 482 A little TB3K stats - tonight 887 comments by Ira were deleted over a three hour period for a sustained rate of 4.64 comments deleted/minute. I'm not saying that's a record but it's probably in the top 10.

Sobering. As I described to Slap upthread, it's not the words, it's the behavior.

484 Thank you, Maet, for all you do.

485 Maet, updates like this are a good thing. It lets us know what all you mods have to do behind the scenes and lets us know what's going on.

I was aware of Cthulu's problems with Ira but didn't know his stalking was still on going.

He needs a dose of Men in Blue uniforms at his door.

486 So, watching "Childhood's End" on SyFy. Forgot how depressing that was,
and just how much Isaac Asimov hated humanity and wanted to
"fundamentally transform" it.

Childhood's End was written by Arthur C. Clarke.

487 Cthulu, I recommend you not try to reason with a mental case.

Waste of time and the mental case enjoys the attention while you drive yourself mental.

*unstatic*

I once joked about this guy and it fell upon the wayward side of the Crapscale.

A harsh wind it was a-blowin', ladies and gentlemen.

I apologized to him with every post I made, but he kept adding, "I am a small man"- type stuff as an addendum to every post I made.

I tried to explain and apologize, but it took me over an hour to shake him.

I laughed at his addendums, (they were really funny), I added what he was adding myself, with an "I know, I know I am a crapsponge, blah-blah-blah."

He dogged me for over an hour on a simple misunderstanding.

I dogged him, immediately apologized, and ate SHIT for an hour.

I would not have taken that from anyone else.

I would have hung an effigy of your Mother from a tree, had it been you.

...but it wasn't.

It was The BanHammer-Wielding Motherfucker With an Attitude.

It was a Four-Step Process:

-Sit there.
-Take it.
-Pipe it.
-Like it.

He ain't Jesus Christ, but he's apt at flipping tables.

We need something to cool the tempers. How about another Flame War thread like there was in the old days?

501 "No way, dick. And you're far too much of a pussy to start one."

You are probably right. There really isn't anyone I want to flame all that much. Maybe a mild insult or two but overall there isn't anyone who stands out on my list of people to flame.

You are not even on the list.

So there take that. You are not even worth the effort to flame.

502 Dear Lord... I cannot finish what I've started.

I apologize to Tim and Our Lord for that bit of nonsense.

Dude... I was acting on impulse.

Maybe when Satan gets a good hold of my ass, I'll pull-off some "Drag You Down" shenanigans.

Until that point...

I hope that you know that I was just being silly.

Pardon me, Sir!

508 Yay YouTube! The entire "Atomic Shakespeare" episode of Moonlighting is on YouTube.

What a freakin' classic. 49 minutes of absolutely perfect television comedy. You keep thinking they couldn't keep that level of quality up for the whole episode, but they did. Every line, every scene is spot-on perfection. On rewatch, I notice there's a whole lotta Mel Brooks in that episode.

Like when Bruce Willis starts reading from Julius Caesar and the whole town yells "WRONG PLAY!" in unison.

Or in lines like:

Kate: "Unhand me!"

Petruchio: "I'll try, but I don't think they come off."

509 One of my favorites from the last Flame War thread that I can remember.

"your mama is so fat, she doesn't eat wheat thins. She eats wheat thicks"

I wish I could attribute the quote to the proper Moron but memory fails me.

Maybe Buzzion can?

510 The weather guy on the local channel had a picture of some idiot, dressed in shorts, out mowing his lawn yesterday here in No. Ill. Weather guy said the mower man did it to show how GLOBAL WARMING was a reality. I wonder where the mower guy was on November 20-21 this year when we got about a foot of snow and it dropped down to 4 degrees which was a low temp record.

Posted by: Bruce at December 15, 2015 05:59 AM (8ikIW)

511 It seems to be slowly leaking into the collective brain that the current administration by policy and administration is aiming a little escalating genocide at us. Why else would they open the borders to drug cartels, Central American gangs, untraceable refugees from jihadi mosques, and really ugly and violent Pakistani "brides" with not just "no vetting" of any kind but actually forbid it by our sluggish and indifferent public servants. The big yawn from the White House at 14 dead in San Bernardino, and the give me a moment so I can appear to give a crap over Paris is really a window of the soulless hell they exist in. Newt said it last night on Fox. Collateral damage for globalism.

512 Reading the obtiuary column this morning as I tend to see past acquiantances popping up there of late. I just read about a (divorced) guy who did 20 years in the Navy, got out last year and died at his residence after having a heart attack. He got to enjoy a whole year of that "glorious" military pension before dying at 40.

Cripes.

When I was at FTCKY, I had a squad leader who had changed his mind about putting in 20. He had done honor guard for one too many such men.

Even in peace time, serving is a had life and takes a toll.
