EMT 1/24/16 Problematic Oscars edition [krakatoa]

Like so many, I am deeply concerned about what's going on in Hollywood regarding the Oscars.

These accusations of racism should be fully explored, and I hope you find the following commentary both insightful and perhaps, if I may be so bold, an example to us all in how to deal with such allegations with the proper amount of respect and sensitivity.

I think I probably speak for us all when I say (cont'd below the fold)

Amazing how someone who has built up so much good will, and is in a once-in-a-century position to be in the right place at the right time to really change things for the better, is instead pissing it away.

Trump has no standing, no court will hear it and Cruz is a citizen.

91 Now the daies are shortened, & the nights prolonged, winds are sharp, snow and suddaine inundations of waters arise, the earth is congealed with frost and ice, & all liuing creatures do quiuer with cold. Therefore a man must vse warme and drie meates: for the cheerefull vertues of the bodie are now weakened by the cold aire, and the naturall heate is driuen into the inward partes of the bodie, to comfort and maintaine the vitall spirites. All rost, baked, or fried meates be good; and so are boyled beefe and porke. Veale agreeth not, except it be well rosted. Also wardens, apples and peares may be vsed with wine or with salt for swelling, or with comfits for windinesse. Beware least the cold annoy your bodie. And aboue all things haue a regard to keepe your head, neck, and feete warm. To vse carnall copulation is expedient."

For which cause, such things as breede melancholy are to bee avoyded, as feare, care, beanes, old cheese, salt beefe, broath of colewoorts, & such like.

Most of the pork in the stores is too lean. Plus if it has Hormel on the package, it's got at least 10% water, sugar, salt added to it to make it yummier. The Hormel stuff does not grill very well IMO.

American Jews get more of the "hate crimes" committed against them than jihadists, blacks, or "Hispanics", so their protected class status is not very protective. The white conservative Christian gets attacked by government quotas, but hate crimes against them just fall under "we hate America", and that is taught in the schools.

150 Good morning all.

From this date in 1944- central Italy, including an update on VI Corps on the third day at Anzio.


Jan 24, 1944 - The EZ Dog Journal
Cloudy - just a touch of rain. Bombers flew over all day - presumably to VI Corps. VI is pushing well in - ahead of schedule - meeting little resistance. Germans thought they would land at another point.

34 Div launched attack N of Cassino at 2200. Going according to schedule.

Lt Gen Devers and Maj Gen Keyes (36 Div) visited CP today. Brig Gen Taylor (82d Airborne Div) came later. Gen Taylor is the person who made capitulation terms with Bagdolio in Rome.

"Boogey" man haunted my tent tonight. After much speculation the wind seems to be logical answer.



I've mentioned before how Dad told of the Moroccan Ghoumiers ("Gooms") of the French Expeditionary Corps reputation for night patrols where they would sneak into an encampment, feeling for the dogtags on a sleeping soldier's neck to determine if they were Allies or Germans. I don't know if that was true or legend, but I can imagine him in his cot holding his breath while the wind rustled his tent flap, waiting to feel a hand on his chest. Of course, the divisional artillery command post was a long way from anywhere the Gooms might have been patrolling, wasn't it...???

166 Well, it's fun to look at the various traffic cameras around the mid atlantic (VA511, WV511, and MD's "Chart on the web" services).
Seems the heavy stuff stayed along the east side of the Blue Ridge and associated ridge lines, with some major roadways still not cleared.
The upthread comment about where to put it - watched a crew using a front end loader clear out an intersection on 66 in VA. Based on how they were pushing the snow (and knowing that intersection well), I'd say there was easily 4 feet drifted into that spot, and they were just piling it over the guardrail as best they could...
Easy on the shoveling, all.

PS - it's already 45 here outside Houston, on it's way to the mid 60's. Will be grilling later on...

Seeing the roof collapses in VA, I'm guessing heavy and wet.

In Richmond VA, the snow was light powder, then it was ice pellets and then it was wet.

178 Not too many great actors out there that fit my definition of a great actor. Lots of good actors but to be great you have to make me forget who you are. When I see Will Smith in a movie I always see Will Smith playing a character. When I see Christian Slater I see the character and forget It's Chrisrian Slater. ( I'm sure Slater in real life is more of a dick than Smith)

Been on twitter for a couple days now @ Free Citizen 4 Now.... been asking the Hollywood stars complaining about racism ( Spike Lee, Jada Pinkett, Kerry Washington) all over Hollywood to NAME the racists so I can boycott their films.

Not one Hollywood star has responded to my request to NAME names. Funny that...

It's almost like this is a made up bullsh*t charge to get some kind of a collective white guilt thing going and to get out the minority vote this election season...just like the Black Lives Matter movement.

It's best to call these SJWs on their b.s. ...but, Hollywood leftists at the Academy WILL cave somehow on this crap.... THAT is a guarantee.

181 162 Where do you live in SC? I live in the Upstate and
it was blue skies yesterday and today is expected to get up into the
50's. Might finish melting that 2 inches of snow we got over the top of
1/2" of ice.

187 I don't want to see "The Revenant" Sounds too bloody although I understand (from someone who did ) that the scenery is breathtaking. I also don't want to see it because ******SPOILER ALERT********


He goes after the men who live him for dead for revenged also because they killed his Native American son. There is no evidence that he had an Native American son, but of course that has to be the PC tagline-the White men men don't just leave him for dead, they kill his son (or at least one of them does) because white men are cowardly and evil always unless you're the protaganist;

Here's another reflection on what could have made the story better-the truth:

SPOLIER ALERT

192 On this day, here in Denver, the Patriots will kick the Broncos ass.

As a transplant from elsewhere, and not a serious fan of football, but having lived in Pittsburgh for four of their six championship seasons, my observation is that most of the NFL teams have a huge fan base of working class people.

Not so much in Denver. Too many hipster douchebags. So when a team out of eastern MA comes to play, with Tom Brady throwing, it's gonna be a down day for the Broncs.

201 Cruz said Trump's lawyers said previously everything was fine, but Trump just said he'd heard lawyers had checked it out and everything was fine ... not "Trump's lawyers looked into it".

There are two suits now, one in IL by a Carson supporter that's a lawyer/pharmacist. The article said Trump didn't think those two had standing. idk, but it seems a Carson supporter has standing since his guy is the other evangelical candidate. Harm is evidenced in polling ... but ianal.

I'd rather they take the case and settle it now so that is off the table. Labeling it a "birther" issue is like what the left did to any that questioned not just Obama's birthplace, but anything about his socialist upbringing, and commie mentors. It's just a smear, and even Mark Steyn said it is not so clear. Courts would clear it up (most likely in Cruz's favor, regardless of actual law, after Barry Soetoro from Connecticut) and get it off the table so Cruz doesn't have to deal with it now or later.

202 Ah, Sunday morning book thread AND the power is still on. A wonderful start to the day.

On Moron recommendation I got Ted Koppel's "Lights Out" on cyberattacks and the aftermath. I jumped to the section on surviving the aftermath, which begins: "For the most part, public reaction to the possibility of a massive cyberattack has not even risen to the level of apathy. Apathy suggests the awareness of a problem and the decision not to worry about it. To the degree that government and its disaster relief operations focus our attention at all, they direct it toward the familiar: natural disasters common to our region, or variations on terrorist attacks that have already occurred."

He has thus far treated the prepping community with respect. Anyone who has observed government response to disasters over the last decade, and the lack of guidance for dealing with anything longer than 72 hours, can see that individuals are on their own.

204 Cruz's attorney could have the United States Post Office, a competent Federal authority, deliver 50 bags of mail to the courtroom, specifically the Judge's bench, all addressed simply to President Cruz. That would prove that Cruz was in fact the one and only Santa Claus Natural Born Citizen.

205 30 inches here in Chambersburg PA. Last night I dug a path from the door to the parking lot after the lot was plowed; at one point the snowbank was at shoulder height. Today I'm breaking in a new pair of boots and will be digging out the car. I think that storm just might have made me a little mazzo....

206 Once again reading about the Campus Accountability and Safety Act in the SideBar and I have to say, the law should simply say that all sex crimes allegations must be reported to the local law enforcement. That should end the University's part in the process. Full stop. The University might, in good conscience, have a guideline that anyone arrested for sex crimes will not be allowed on campus until it is adjudicated, but that would be it.
