Overnight Open Thread (2-11-2016)

Comment of the Day

The point people seem to not comprehend about criminal sentencing is that its supposed to suck. That's the point: we punish people by punishing them. Prison is supposed to suck. Its supposed to be miserable and awful when you break the law and are punished for it. There's no reason for it to be sadistic and deliberately horrible, but its even worse to be too easy on the prisoner.

The second purpose of punishment is to take someone away from society to protect society and demonstrate that some things will not be permitted. Sometimes that message has to be permanent.

How The Sausage Gets Made By Democratic Operatives With Bylines

So Atlantic reporter Marc Ambinder wanted early access to a Hillary Clinton foreign policy speech and Clinton advisor/consigliere Philippe Reines was willing to give him a copy - but only if Ambinder agreed to his conditions:

From: [Philippe Reines]
Sent: Wednesday, July 15 2009 10:06 AM
To: Ambinder, Marc
Subject: Re: Do you have a copy of HRC's speech to share?

3 [conditions] actually

1) You in your own voice describe them as "muscular"

2) You note that a look at the CFR seating plan shows that all the envoys - from Holbrooke to Mitchell to Ross - will be arrayed in front of her, which in your own clever way you can say certainly not a coincidence and meant to convey something

3) You don't say you were blackmailed!

Moments later, Ambinder compliantly responded:

From: Ambinder, Marc
Sent: Wednesday, July 15, 2009 10:07 AM
To: Philippe Reines
Subject: RE: Do you have a copy of HRC's speech to share?

got it

And here is what Ambinder wrote in his article "Hillary Clinton's 'Smart Power' Breaks Through" published later that day:

When you think of President Obama's foreign policy, think of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. That's the message behind a muscular speech that Clinton is set to deliver today to the Council on Foreign Relations. The staging gives a clue to its purpose: seated in front of Clinton, subordinate to Clinton, in the first row, will be three potentially rival power centers: envoys Richard Holbrooke and George Mitchell, and National Security Council senior director Dennis Ross.

Good monkey - you followed directions so you get treat!

But These Are Military Jazz-Playing Robots

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), an agency within the Department of Defense (DOD), is spending $2.3 million to build and study jazz-playing robots. The multi-million-dollar defense grant awarded to the University of Arizona "will address the question of whether information systems, such as computers, are capable of collaborating with humans.

German-Polish Relations at Post-War Low Over Merkel's Demands For Poland to Take Their 'Fair Share' of Migrants - or Else

Even the German carnival celebrations over the weekend caused a renewed diplomatic spat in this series. Poland registered its diplomatic protest to a parade float in Düsseldorf showing Polish leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski stamping his jackboot on the head of a woman depicting Poland. Goernment spokesman in Berlin promptly rejected Poland's objections citing "freedom of expression."

This would have be a valid argument, if German police themselves were not investigating into carnival floats in the states of Bavaria and Thuringia deemed "offensive" to Muslim migrants.

At the same time, German authorities and the mainstream media have been thin skinned when it comes to open criticism of official migrant policy, clubbing together every opposition to mass migration as racism and xenophobia.

Soviet Joke #2

An old Jewish man is riding on the Trans-Siberian railway on his way to Vladivostok, carrying a huge and heavy suitcase. He enters the first carriage, walks down the center aisle, and taps a fellow passenger on the shoulder.

"Excuse me, comrade - are you an anti-Semite?"

"No, of course not!" replies the passenger. "I am actually quite fond of Jews!"

The old man thanks him, proceeds down the aisle, and taps the next man on the shoulder.

"Excuse me, comrade - are you an anti-Semite?"

"Absolutely not! Some of my best friends are Jews!"

The old Jew thanks him and continues on his quest. All through that carriage, and the next one, and the one after that, he receives similar responses. Finally, at the end of the train, he reaches the last passenger.

"Excuse me, comrade - are you an anti-Semite?"

"I most certainly am!" the fellow replies. "Filthy kikes! I hate those f***ers!"

"At last, an honest man!" exclaims the old Jew. "Would you mind watching my suitcase while I go to the toilet?"

New Harry Potter Book to be Released: Harry Potter And The Cursed Child

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows ended 19 years after the Battle of Hogwarts, as Harry waved his two eldest children off to the wizarding school.

The Cursed Child will pick up from that moment, focusing on Harry as a frazzled Ministry of Magic civil servant and his middle child Albus Severus, who is struggling under the weight of the family's legacy.

This will be the first tale in the Harry Potter series not to be penned by Rowling.

The two-part play has been written by Jack Thorne, although it has been based on an original idea by Rowling, Thorne and the stage play's director John Tiffany.

Heh: Madonna Fears Her Son May Be Straight

Madonna filed a series of legal challenges yet to be decided to demand her son back. She's recently hired a private investigator to trail her son in London. The P.I. reports back to Madonna that Rocco is skipping school, hanging out in skate parks, and smoking cigarettes. Guy Ritchie doesn't seem to care. Or he's gay deprogramming his son. Madonna insists her teen son needs the structure only a world tour and seeing your fifty-seven year old mom in just a metal bra splashing olive oil on her vulva in front of 30,000 Slovakians can bring. A court will decide next month which fucked up situation Rocco must endure until he's eighteen and can start self-medicating with drugs in his own apartment.

51 Erin Esurance was kinda hot for a cartoon girl. At least that's what a friend told me.

Given that Germany had just tried to obliterate Polish culture and language and murdered more than six million Poles, I can't imagine how relations between Germany and Poland could possibly be as bad now as right after the war.

Demanding they destroy their culture again probably does not sit well with the Poles.

There was an ad for, I think, Harris Financial, which featured a woman who had "Lee" in her name. It was kind of a big deal in '98 or '99 because Lee had spectacular breasts and visible nipples.

Someone finally noticed and they airbrushed her nipples out, but some enterprising blogger captured it.

Should be that any member of the public could roll 2d6 against the employment of any government bureaucrat. If the functionary didn't make his saving throw, he'd be dismissed without recourse. The usual "critical hit" rules would be in effect -- including multi-year and lifetime bannings and loss of pension. Unfortunately, it would also be the case that damage-less strikes would roll against the fumble table -- which would include 50% "no problems" but also range up to "tax audit" and "FBI investigation".

I remember the month I picked up Spider-Man and Strange Tales featuring Dr Strange, and the artist was not Ditko. A harsh lesson. What once was original creation becomes merely a corporate franchise. (Except, Rowling retains her rights to the riches from her characters.)

Sorta relatedly, On Wednesday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the ruling that Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel transferred the rights to the character to Warner Bros. in 2001.

205 M, Yeah it's not Skynet that will unleash the Robot War against humanity.

It will be the One World Government.

They can't get Galactic Empire admittance with the population we have so they're going to pit one group against another.

Slowly they've been opening borders so as to allow the clash of cultures but the US with the Pacific and the Atlantic as barriers and the Central/South Americans too small and non aggressive they've had to come up with another way.

Although they are trying to introduce Muslims through the Northern border, they can build Robots faster.

The robots will take over the jobs then the unemployed white males will start getting rounded up. Any fighting will be met with deadly force.

Forget ammo, buy rope and nets. The only real way to counteract robots is not to attack their strength (their metal armor) but their weakness which balance and agility.

Bolas will be useful also.

Tiger traps and bunji traps will make a comeback. Buy metal plates to strap on the soles of your combat boots.

Buy all metal jacketed bullets with steel cores. (if you can find them).

Molotov cocktails will be good too but don't use them near buildings. And don't forget sticky bombs.

I have no use for Somalis. Scum. Having said that, this might not be a "terrorist" attack, as in not planned or executed by a known group or cell. But an islamist hate crime, yes.


Years ago, back around 2000, or so, before 9/11, at any rate, the pork packing plant in my little Alberta town brought in a couple of dozen Somalis to work there. Muzzies working in a pork packing plant? Yeah, riiight. Except somehow they convinced the company that they would overlook their prejudices for the sake of having work. Anyway, I was drinking in the bar one Saturday, and their was this Somali at the bar. Bald as a cue ball, and brown; looked more Arab than black African. He spoke good English. I said, "you must feel fortunate to be here in Alberta, with a good job, rather than stuck in Somalia, with all the shit that's going down there." He leaned over to me, and said in a confidential tone, "It's all the Jews' fault, of course." True story.

I learned from Archer that the halberds are just ceremonial and that they actually have guns with bullets that sting more.

264 Don't American family courts usually allow older
children to have a say as to which parent they live with? I find it hard
to believe that an American family court judge would force a fifteen
year old to live with his mother, rather than his father. Especially, if
the mother is a sleazy pop star known mainly for nuding it up in
public.

Posted by: nerdygirl at February 12, 2016 12:19 AM (+lVUW)

Actually, the NY judge has already ordered Rocco to go back to his mother's house twice and he (and his London attorney) have ignored both orders. There really isn't much the American courts can do to force the issue when he is across an ocean.
You would think Madonna would set aside her ego long enough to realize that, even without all the additional BS, teenage boys need their fathers.

It's worse than that.

the Gov Unions negotiate with the politicians that they donate money to and they use the taxpayers money to buy the unions off.

It's a money laundering scheme.

And until the Government unions are broken, the country won't be the same.

you can see the down trends chronologically and most of them start when the unions were allowed to unionize government workers.

I dunno. The experience of Prohibition, the widespread evasion - wherever practicable - of sales and income taxes, to say nothing of the history of our Revolution - it was a tax-revolt, at its core - suggests we'll be something like the Italians on some things, and most definitely like the Greeks when it comes to taxes, anyway.

I, for one, take great comfort in the knowledge that we're a nation of decent, amiable scofflaws.

341 Yeah, I think Hillary just has questionable taste. Elizabeth Warren buys her suits from the same designer, and she usually looks good - very simple cuts, plain colors (black, red, blue). None of the ugly colors, weird wide collars like some of Hillary's suits that (I think) are supposed to minimize her pudgy neck and jowls.

365 US prisons are finishing schools for criminally able students or criminal professoriates for the experts among the worst elements of society. The imprisoned peons without criminal potential find themselves homosexually raped and otherwise assaulted. Recidivism is the rule for all, either way, because there is no honest or decent life available to most of them upon release.

If you want to stop this, either implement all solitary confinement all the time or only allow the peons without criminal potential (if you can identify them) to socialize in prison.

There are a couple of fun observations that run that way -- common Spanish errors for native English speakers. Many of them result from trying to make a Spanish word out of an English one by adding an "a" at the end and editing to make it "Spanish-sounding".

A classic example is when someone is trying to talk about a social gaffe in English that is "embarrassing". So they try to use "embarazada". Trouble is, that means "pregnant".

And then, there is the total clusterfuck that involves washing your hands. "Soap" [E] = "jabon" ; "sopa" = "soup" [E]; "jamon" = "cured pork" [E]. So an English-speaker's attempt to describe washing one's hands with soap and water in Spanish frequently ends up as an accidental dissertation about making soup with ham.

Delegates for the states matter little in the dem primary. It's the super delegates that will determine the nominee and they aren't beholden to any votes or caucuses and can change their pea-brains on a whim.

The elections and caucuses in the dem primary are just for show. They are basically meaningless in the actual nomination process.

Posted by: redc1c4 at February 12, 2016 02:21 AM (+PCeH)

425 Isn't his real name Anthony Villars, but he sexed it up to sound more Latino, like Geraldo Rivera?

Posted by: Lizzy at February 12, 2016 02:24 AM (NOIQH)

426 iirc, he adopted his first wife's surname when they married...

he got busted cheating on her while in office with a reporter chick, and both marriage went KaBoom.

quite the scandal here at the time.

He is often photographed bike riding with his dad or just walking. Looks normal. I dont see how a judge can force Guy Ritchie to do anything being that the judge is in NY. Will the judge hold him n contempt? Who cares? I doubt he will.

Mornin' Chi.

Except for cases of genetics or medical, most vicious pit bulls are the result of vicious owners. It's easy to train a dog to be mean, but it takes more time and especially patience to train a dog to be good or nice.

While I think there have been cases of pit bulls attacking people, I think the stories overall were the media going for the breathless hype (think Goatherder Smith and the Superdome during Katrina). I'm sure other breeds attack people, too, like German shepherds, rotties and the like, but those stories just aren't as 'sexy'.

Can you imagine getting attacked by an angry St. Bernard? I was 'attacked' by a friendly one and was just about knocked on my ass when he jumped on me, putting his oversized paws on my shoulders and licking me face to face.

Posted by: RickZ at February 12, 2016 06:27 AM (Ix+HS)

477 Yeah, Rick (g'mornin),
I remember a few years back, all the stories of local pits chewing on people.
After I actually spent time around a few that were loved & cared for, I thought "hmm. How many poodles have taken a chunk out of the mailman in the last year?"
My 15 lb min-pin is more aggressive than the last 4 pits I've been in contact with.
And I know what you mean about "being attacked." I used to house-sit for an ex's brother quite often. His 100 lb pit was a big sloppy sissy. Ugly as homemade soup, with a head the size of a basketball, but pure putty in your hands. She would knock me over the second she saw me, then proceed to attempt to drown me in slobber.

480 Germany's "or else" days with Poland are over. Poland is, arguably, a stronger military. On paper Germany has more troops and armor, but the reality is well reported - the formerly powerful Bundeswehr is under-trained, under-maintained, and has very low morale. Global Power currently shows them as having less than 450 MBT's, even though they claim to have over 2,000. They probably do, with 1,500 of them being used for parts and such at this point.

Poland, on the other hand, has a well trained and well maintained army. The lessons of the past aren't lost on them.

If Poland can get an Air Force she'll be the only serious military power left in eastern Europe. Only Britain or France would compare.

"Or else..." Yeah, go ahead, Angela. If there is one nation that Poland would like to meet mano a mano, it's probably yours.

US prisons are finishing schools for criminally able students or
criminal professoriates for the experts among the worst elements of
society. The imprisoned peons without criminal potential find themselves
homosexually raped and otherwise assaulted. Recidivism is the rule for
all, either way, because there is no honest or decent life available to
most of them upon release.

If you want to stop this, either
implement all solitary confinement all the time or only allow the peons
without criminal potential (if you can identify them) to socialize in
prison.


Posted by: Ceteris Paribus at February 12, 2016 01:24 AM (lQqJB)



Prison is a soft-pedaled eugenics program - one of its main purposes and functions is to slow the rate of growth of the criminal class, by preventing inmates from breeding offspring during the term of their confinement. The worst offenders are required to spend their entire sexually-active years away from fertile females.

The penal system ought to be openly recognized and operated as an overt eugenics program -- e.g., allow the non-violent ones to be released if they agree to some sort of temporarily or permanent sterilization.
