Quote of the Day

Kanye West - 侃爷 (kan yť): a transliteration of Kanye. In Beijing dialect, this means someone who brags a lot with no actions to follow it up.

What If The Refugees Are Not Just Ignorant Savages?

Here's what I think is going on: The refugees are acting as they are, not because they see themselves as charity cases, but because they see themselves as conquerors. They know perfectly well that one doesn't defecate in a pool in which people (especially children) are swimming. They're doing it because they are performing the literal equivalent of the expression "I don't give a shit about you." They know you're not supposed to rape women . . . that is, unless those women are the products of conquest, in which case raping them is one of Mohamed's commandments.

It's almost funny seeing Europeans trying politely to teach their conquerors how not to treat those whom they have conquered. I wonder how long it will take before the Europeans figure out that they're no longer in the driver's seat. And then I wonder whether they'll be able or willing to mount a counter-strike, or whether the twelve-hundred year-long Islamic jihad against Europe will finally have succeeded.

Who Owns This Woman?

Well, that's the thing: She owns her. The notion that women have zero say in their lives seems limited to countries that people thoroughly enjoy emigrating from. Not sure if there's a correlation there, but it's just wise to disabuse yourself of the notion that women are chattel. By and large, they cannot be told what to do, and you will not be able to prevent them from watching "Downton Abbey."

You will have to accept that you are not the boss of them. Any other mindset is dated and coincidently ensures you will not be dated. In Western society, it is quite common for women to rise to positions of great prestige and power. In fact, Republicans are working hard to ensure that a woman is elected president of the United States!

My Daughter Has Dishonored Me and Needs to Be Killed. Cool?

Nope! Nope! Listen, we really want a hiccup-free assimilation, so we're glad you asked. Most of us in the West-actually, all of us-are incapable of picturing a scenario where strangling a daughter is an actual option. This bears repeating: Countries that turn a blind eye to filicide seem to be the very same countries people don't want to live in. Coincidence? Who knows, but no. Perhaps this little rhyme can help: To live here in the West, God willing, just say no to honor killing.

Martin O'Malley Supports the Starvation of Non-Workers Plus Thoughts on the Unemployment of Man and Other Animals

Now, obviously, as a pro-death conservative, I'm all for this radical departure from basic societal norms. "No work, no food" sounds like a relatively just system. I don't know that I'd take it quite so far as O'Malley - animals are jerks, for the most part - but hey, sometimes you have to suggest an extreme idea in order to get a more moderate one enacted. That being said, I'm kind of surprised that a nominal liberal like O'Malley wants to emulate the animal kingdom.

'Anne of Green Gables' Gets the Politically Correct Remake Treatment

Anne's issues are contemporary issues: feminism, prejudice, bullying and a desire to belong. The stakes are high and her emotional journey is tumultuous. I'm thrilled to delve deeply into this resonant story, push the boundaries and give it new life.
The CBC confirmed the new approach the series would take; it will "explore new territory" as its characters experience "original adventures." And then there's the fact that Martin Sheen is cast as Matthew Cuthbert. No. Just, no.

...Remaking a classic is no simple affair. It's almost by nature a doomed enterprise. Can you imagine if a producer announced he was going to take another stab at The Godfather? They'd be laughed out of Hollywood. The 1985 production of Anne of Green Gables was, effectively, The Godfather for the female sex. It's untouchable, and not replicable. Like the novels it is based on, the original screen version became a classic in its own rite.

If there was ever one thing that could drive Mrs. Maetenloch into cutting a bitch, it's mucking around with Anne of Green Gables.

[And speaking of Mrs. M this weekend I was asking her how come she was still using an old crappy charger when we had several new ones - and without skipping a beat she immediately rolled into a Milton-I-just-want-my-Swingline routine. Which is reason #119 I married her. What's extra impressive is that English is not her native language and she's only seen office Space once and that was years ago.]

[And a bit of Swingline trivia: Did You Know That Red Swingline Staplers Didn't Actually Exist Until After Office Space Came Out?]

Rhodes Must Not Fall

In which L. Gordon Crovitz argues that the Oxford students wanting Cecil Rhodes' statue torn down and his name scrubbed from the university are ignorant of the man and the context of the times:

The Cape Colony under Rhodes was liberal for its day. Africans could vote if they met the same property-holding or income requirements as whites. Rhodes might have bent too far to placate the Boers, the Dutch settlers whose support he needed to rule the colony. But at the end of his political career, Rhodes opposed a Boer plan to submit Africans to a literacy test before they could vote. Only after Rhodes left office did the Boers establish apartheid as official policy.

When Rhodes created his scholarship in 1902, he included a clause far ahead of its time. His will specifies that no student will be "qualified or disqualified on account of his race or religious opinions."

The first black Rhodes Scholar, Alain Locke, was elected in 1907. Locke's American peers shunned him; some threatened to resign their scholarships in protest. An official history of the scholarship explains why the Rhodes trustees rejected the complaints: "There was plenty of 'color' in the British Empire," they said, and no one "was going to be debarred from a Rhodes scholarship on that ground." Locke became a leading writer and scholar.

Instead of trying to erase Rhodes, Nelson Mandela embraced him. In 2002 the South African statesman posed for a photo in Cape Town beside a portrait of Rhodes. Mandela wagged a finger at him and said: "Cecil, now you and I are going to work together." The Mandela-Rhodes Foundation funds education for Africans. "Combining our name with that of Cecil Rhodes in this initiative is to sign the closing of the circle and the coming together of two strands of our history," Mandela said.

Guesses for the Over/Under Until Africa Begins Sending Christian Missionaries to England?

Nevertheless, the discrepancy between the main Anglican churches in Western countries and those in Africa (now the demographic center of the Anglican Communion) is instructive. The Church of England has 44 dioceses with 26 million official members, 1.2 million "realistic" ones. The Episcopal Church in the U.S. has 111 dioceses with 2.4 million official members, 800,000 "realistic" ones. Nigeria and Uganda are the largest churches in Africa, the website does not differentiate between the two categories of members; be this as it may, in Nigeria there are over 100 dioceses with over 17 million members, in Uganda 32 dioceses with over 9 million members. It's clear who has the numbers. Needless to say, the financial resources of the Western churches are much superior to the African ones.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has been trying hard to avoid an outright schism. A recent event, which he himself caused for this end, has made his task more difficult. The leaders of African Anglicans, along with those in other non-Western countries, have been particularly shocked as the Episcopal Church in the U.S. sequentially consecrated an openly gay bishop, then ordained gay and lesbian priests, and most recently authorized priests to conduct same-sex weddings.
But the new African elites who celebrated the end of the Victorian Raj had been successfully indoctrinated with Victorian morals-and those turned out to be very functional to poor people trying to get out of poverty (if you will, the Max Weber effect), even if the elite (like elites everywhere) only paid lip service to moral principles while enjoying the hedonism supported by the privileges of power. But Anglican bishops are not part of the elites in Africa: When they uphold good Protestant values, in the best Evangelical tradition, this is no mere lip service-they really mean it! And so the Archbishop of Uganda may by 2019 excommunicate the Archbishop of Canterbury!

PJ Media to Glenn Greenwald and Pierre Omidyar: You Must Retract and Apologize for Smearing PJ Media, Misleading The Intercept's Readers

Last fall PJ Media's Patrick Poole reported that US citizen and No Fly List = Islamophobia poster boy, Saadiq Long, was arrested in Turkey during a raid on an ISIS cell. Glenn Greenwald was outraged by this and wrote a multi-thousand word screed calling Poole a liar, rebutting claims that Poole never made in his story, and asserting that Long had in fact never been arrested in Turkey. But then last week the US DOJ dropped a turd bomb of truth all over Glenn's claims.

68 Don't be the Everclear fairy (a cautionary tale):

So, my husband's shop is divided into two segments with ~8 people each. They get along fairly well.....until this weekend.

There was a birthday party for SSgt. M of the other half of the shop that we were invited to. It was a Saturday, I had a lot to do, and my daughter and husband were having fun playing Lego Dimensions, so we didn't go.

Glad we didn't.

The birthday boy, SSgt. M, decided to play "Everclear fairy" to his party participants, and went around, randomly sprinkling Everclear into people's drinks, causing people to get... looser than they normally would.

The SSgts of my husband's shop half decided to go on a long rant session about the other half, which the DDs heard. One of them was the #2 of the other half, and he's now pissed at my husband's shop.

My husband has been trying to smooth things over, but for the love of something holy, please don't be the Everclear fairy.

They haven't refueled F1 cars in several years.

There were a couple of bad pit fires, and the FIA decided to make the teams run the race on the fuel in the tank at the start of the race.

He ordered detailed blood tests, in his office & no wait time, & hand x-rays in hospital & Doctor told me he could help my hands if I had RA, blood test was 16 & below 14 is normal, he could help joint destruction.

168 155: Good. I've got RA. I won't go on about it.

Having Rheumatoid factor is not conclusive for RA. It's suggestive, but not conclusive. There are other tests now that are much better and any good rheumatologist would know all about 'em.

However, there is still no test that can completely rule it in or out. It's basically the symptoms along with the tests that allow a diagnosis.

Under that criterion, our options include Huckabee, Santorum, Bush (the campaign of LOVE), etc., you know, all establishment people.

176 But I agree that some Christians can be infuriating when it comes to this. Would they choose any other professional that way, do they demand that their doctors are accountants be practicing Christians ?

The fact that a political candidate is a Christian could have some influence on whether I supported him or not.

Right now, none of our candidates' religious faith is a consideration for me. I guess if they are Christian they may be more inclined to protect religious liberty. But that isn't necessarily the case.

But there's no way I'm voting for a Christian Democrats over a non-christian Republican. Not in this day and age. Perhaps only in extreme circumstances and probably only at the local level.

I thought he was poisoning himself, until I read the MSDS and found that Boraxo is less toxic than salt.
So I leave him to it. He claims it works, and the way my hands flare up when the weather changes makes me wonder if making those wry "I'm washing my own mouth out with soap" faces might be worth it.

Welcome to the West! A FAQ For Immigrants

I rate this piece as "mostly funny."

I do have have a small quibble, though.

The answer to the question 'Shall We at Least Murder These Kissing Men?' contains the following statement:

Once again, we're not asking you to celebrate, approve, or embrace anything you don't like, but you will have to tolerate it in order for the assimilation thing to stick.

I can think of a few bakers, florists, and pizza shop owners who would rate this statement as "mostly false."

Thus endeth my quibble.

I'm sorry you have RA & I had two aunts, both passed away in 1995, first the youngest of my mother's sisters & within three months the oldest. One had gold shots & was first to die at Mass Eye & Ear Hospital waiting. I don't know exact details because I was on vacation in The Bahamas.

Both my aunts were confined to wheelchairs the last 3-4 years of their lives & that was around time commercial saying "I've fallen & can't get up" was on & it happened to my
Godmother, same aunt & I didn't like jokes about that damn commercial.

My grandmother died before I was born & there were any meds for it & was crippled in bed for 22 years, that's from my mother & several of my cousins that are 9 years younger than my late mother.

I'll ask new dr, if I finally read my note to call, to ask for new test in May.

I do know damage RA does & Gold shots & surprised that they still use drug, Methotrexate for it. It was a chemotherapy drug.

Thank you & I hope your RA Doctor helps you.
I'll say prayer for you if I can keep eyes open.

Lauren- I don't have psoriasis. I have sore on right elbow & it's from whacking it on asphalt tiles on house. You know how it is, gave something that hurts & hit it again.
Curel (thick, greasy, white cream in jar) that I use 1-2 times a day, clears it up.
Thank you.

Methotrexate is standard treatment now. It works, but basically just slows down the damage process. And it is not without it's side effects. The newest drugs are the "biologics", such as Enbrel, which can be really good, but they are very immunosuppressive, and other side effects.

*****************************

There was one time I voiced my concern to the... elders I guess they were, over a sermon where the pastor told us to take out our wallets and star speaking to it, and summon God to put $1000 in it.

I got the bless your heart response for showing my concerns and was never invited to a cell group again.

More recently I tried another church where they were doing a heavy metal worship session with the full lights and smoke effects. I was surprised because the pastor was the son of a more traditional pastor who would have never pandered like that to get young people coming. I expressed my concern again to one of the pastors, who said they cater to a particular culture, but if it didn't suit me he wishes me luck in finding a church more befitting of what I'm looking for, which is Christian-speak for get the fuck outta here.

And one time that was really my fault because I joined a christian singles group and tried flirting with all the women there, many of who already had boyfriends with apparent anger issues.

I think it's from a steroid allergy inhaler I started script in June. Now I've stopped all allergy inhalers for at least a month & taking Benadryl. It doesn't make me tired but it dries out eyes & I cannot keep eyes open.

I think that's called "The Prosperity something-or-other" which boils down to "pray to God to make you rich, but if he doesn't it's because you didn't believe hard enough." Not only is it heresy, it's really retarded heresy. Reminds me of what Sam Kinison called "God's special-ed squad."

I'm a lifelong Christian, and I'd have walked out of both of the first two churches without hesitation and never gone back.
The good news is that there are other churches that teach sound doctrine and don't go in for the heavy metal worship band. The trick is finding them.

Posted by: Misanthrope for Trump/Cruz at January 29, 2016 12:44 AM (5DJW4)



That is not Christian speak for get the fuck out of here. Its English for "you are welcome to stay but we will not change the service for you." The ways people choose to commune with God and fellow believers are many and varied. Not all church services allow everyone to feel connected. If heavy metal is not for you (and it certainly isn't for me), another type of service likely would be.


In any case, and I am not snarking here, I will pray that you find what you need. I know my own life would be much sadder and shallower without the Lord.

Boraxo is (or was? have not seen it for years) a hand soap made with borax. It was mostly powdered soap, and one would not want to eat it. 20 Mule Team borax, is, IIRC, sodium borate salt, and you could eat that, but I think pharmaceutical-grade boric acid would be the preparation of choice.

Black plastic stock, round charging handle in a long slot along the right side of the receiver, and a big metal banana magazine, looking well-worn indeed.


I know open carry is legal here; you just don't expect to see a hippie toting an AK wanna-be in Wal-Mart.

MH you saw that ace dropped into the brawl two nights ago to give the "everybody stop throwing chairs" talk? Well, a concise clear reminder, anyway.

Thing is, there wasn't actually much direct personal attacking going on. It was more in the form of generalizations about certain sets of people (see this ONT for a very close parallel). Which could be seen as a devious roundabout personal attack, probably.

Most interesting was the one-man marathon effort by a regular. One-note and generally prettyshallow, with a mysterious and impressive level of condescension. With one very interesting possible bit of revelation, in one of his very last comments.

This fits the description of a Romanian G code AK I have, with black poly furniture rather than the wood mine has. Shoots 7.62x39, 30 standard or 40 round banana mag.

redbanzai, so you're confirming what the linked item said, that the Gov/AG were reversing themselves in return for nothing at all? Seems plausible, and certainly one of those extremely rare feel-good stories on that topic. Thanks.

AOP, AR platforms (of which I am not an owner, yet) come in lots of flavors, including .308, and 7.62 (well, I think). So, coulda been one of those. Interesting to hear a first-hand open-carry anecdote.

Oh - todaymy buddy and I burned a few of those Nicaraguan stogies you so thoughtfully brought back from your recent trip. Very nice. Thanks again. He's going to remodel his house, so I'll have to take in a few of his things for lodging. A .308 M1A SOCOM rifle, and a Smith ampersand Wesson Model 27. "Really, it's no bother, really".

395 Miss Wolfe...

I will certainly ask for your Faith to be rewarded through Him. Might your strength find itself doubled through our very prayers.

Should we need to start fundraising, you just let me know. I will spearhead a campaign for donations with mine being the very first.

I ask Our Lord to find you, and find you well. Might strength surge through your very soul and those around you buoy that faith; as beloved creations of God.

As you have carried and loved others, might that same love be found within yourself and those who surround you.

May those of Faith carry you, should you stumble.

Blessed are those whose love is unconditional.

In Jesus' Name, I pray...

425 178 Carol I have a friend who believes that a lot of his arthritis symptoms were caused by a shortage of Boron, and claims to have arrested his symptoms by taking Boron in the form of boraxo.

I thought he was poisoning himself, until I read the MSDS and found that Boraxo is less toxic than salt.
So I leave him to it. He claims it works, and the way my hands flare up when the weather changes makes me wonder if making those wry "I'm washing my own mouth out with soap" faces might be worth it.

456 Well I finally got around to reading that Megan McArdle article in the sidebar. She's almost admitting "we were wrong" about free trade, at least with China. There was a new study out that shows opening the market to China fucked the middle class royally. She has to throw something in there about the Luddites, and they are wrong, but this ain't the same thing.

There was another piece I read a couple days ago by some author who re-ran the data on some seminal piece of economic work about the Mariel boat lift. The original conclusion was it had no effect on the native American labor market, and thus "low skilled immigration is good".

Well, he ran the numbers and found just the opposite. It did depress low-end wages of Americans in the Miami market. And then he went on how they fudged the data with dubious techniques and assertions.

IOW, sort of like globull warmuning.

So, the two big tenets of donor-class "conservatism" and libertarianism may in fact have been bull shit all along.

460 In Re; the looking at soap.

Or when you have matching rug, seat lid cover and tank lid covers.

Men do not usually like seat covers because they prevent the lid staying up by itself. (some lids may not)

And so the lid will shut by itself usually before you're done peeing (standing up of course).

This is a passive aggressive move by women to force you to pee sitting down. Trust me on this. It may be subconscious but it's a really nasty move showing the signs that your woman has some penis envy/hate issues.

Just try removing the seat lid cover and you'll find out how much aggression is there. (be prepared for couch sleeping and the usual sexual manipulations.)

How to "work" for "Marvel" (Disney) or "DC" (Warner) comics (storyboards / brand management)

1. go to DeviantArt.

2. enter name of one of your brands as search term.

3. skip over dickgirl and pony porn.

4. steal brilliant ideas of people on DA who are approximately infinity times more talented than you.

5. tell the person whose idea you stole that they should be proud you flattered them by being inspired by their "fan art".

6. wonder why comics are dying (they aren't, but "Marvel" and "DC" publications are. For some weird, unconnected reason)

The "new look" for Spider-Man in the next Captain America etc. movies is stolen directly from a totally unique and original updated costume design drawn by one girl and stitched together in real life by another girl and then cosplayed by several people.

So "Marvel" just up and stole it like the enormous epic douches that they are.

I admit that I haven't heard one note from the new album, but I have probably listened to every full concert from Adele on youtube.
I would say this generations greatest talent.

Have you seen the video of her auditioning in an Adele sound-alike contest? That is pretty darned good. She may be a lefty, but seems VERY fun and down-to-earth.

477 I haven't bought a bar of soap in 10 years. (Horde can insert insults about my hygiene here __________ ); I've stayed in lots of hotel rooms during that time, and I always collect the soap offerings in them. Last year I went down to the local old folks home and donated a large bag of soap, shampoo, pens, skin lotion etc. that I had over-accumulated. I still have a 10 year supply of soap on hand.

Lately I've noticed a new disturbing development -- Hotel rooms are now putting soap and shampoo dispensers in their restrooms. Hmmm, I should bring a large empty container in my luggage.

501 The only television adaptation of Anne of Green Gables we'll need was already made 37 years ago by Japanese animators. Akage no An, a full 50 episodes and it faithfully adapted nearly every chapter of the book, leaving out only a couple minor things (like Anne's panicked walk through the Haunted Wood), and filler relegated to one half of an episode where they borrowed a scene from one of L.M. Montgomery's other books, Emily of New Moon. Overall its only real downside was that it was never released in English for some reason.

'Blows Against The Empire' is one of my favorite Starship albums, along with 'Dragon Fly' and 'Spitfire' (I still have a t-shirt for 'Spitfire'; can't wear it, it's too small, but it's resting in the drawer). I also like Airplane's 'Bark', along with Grace Slick's 'Manhole'. Their list of single 'hits' is quite impressive, considering who they were.

Another interesting tidbit: I've heard the song 'Wooden Ships' as recorded by three groups. Two most know, CS&N and Jefferson Airplane, but a group called Ides of March (best known for the song 'Vehicle') also recorded 'Wooden Ships'.

The thing about JA is that they made a lot of country rock songs. In college, they had a wide crossover appeal (yeah, I know, way before your time you young whippersnapper). They also have some quite beautiful and haunting songs, like 'Pretty As You Feel'. JA was quite eclectic, with JS being less so, more power rock (they did write one of the best bar songs ever, for fighting or not, 'Jane'). The whole of JS's 'Dragon Fly' is really good and holds up well. On 'Spitfire', the song 'St. Charles' is also quite good. When Marty Balin was the vocalist instead of Kantner, the songs tended to be better. I will also say, in her youth, Grace Slick could belt it out with the best of them.

And at least a dozen vinyl albums, but those are packed away in a crate somewhere and I don't feel like counting them. Need moar coffee!

535 Cruz's radio spots aren't the best. He sounds like a revival preacher yelling at me.

In re: Bandit Barbie -

Her family insist Miss Wawman is innocent and say she had been intimidated by Argentinian police who sang songs about the Falklands.

Oh yeah, "Sweet Home Argentina"...

Big wheels keep on turning
Carry me home to see my kin
Singing songs about the Falklands
I miss Buenos Aries once again and I think it's a sin

Not to get into the C/T wars here, but I will say this. Cruz is a smart guy with all the personality of a wet dishrag. Unfortunately for Cruz, in presidential elections, personality matters. I'd say he has a better shot in one or two presidential election cycles from now. That'd give him time to sound less stiff, preachy and more at ease with himself. But, at the moment, I just don't think enough people will buy what he's selling, even if what he's selling is good.

546 "I present it here solely as a blog Gom Jabbar test to see who can override their animal nature."

A lesson I learned early. If a friend or acquaintance who I trust say "you don't want to see that"... then it follows I don't want to see that.

My life got a little happier the day I learned that lesson.
