Overnight Open Thread (3-27-2016) - Easter Edition

Quote of the Day I

The upper-middle-class climate-warriors at the heart of Sanders's movement imagine themselves victims of a world-destroying capitalist conspiracy. Incremental nationalization of the energy industry is their path to global salvation; nor is the silencing of climate dissenters too high a price to pay. Other Sanders socialists aim to shut down Trump rallies. This is not democracy but a return of authoritarian socialism, the most seductive secular religion that history has ever known.

-- Stanley Kurtz on feeling the Bern

Quote of the Day II

"Europe has been real a******s about Israel," [Bill] Maher said.

"I mean, in general. The U.N. - as of 2015, the United Nations Human Rights Council had issued more official condemnations of Israel than the rest of the world's nations combined. I wonder now that Europe has been attacked four times now in a little over a year, and they say ISIS has 400 fighters that they are ready to introduce back into Europe, and they're trying to get a dirty bomb - maybe Europe will have a little more sympathy for what Israel goes through."

Quote of the Day III

Socialism creates the decline, and other groups come in, like parasites on a weakened host.

-- Neo-Neocon on the history of Molenbeek's decline

Illinois Supreme Court: Why Yes The State Constitution is a Suicide Pact

The Illinois Supreme Court on Thursday rejected a plan to cut future retirement benefits and boost employee contributions for Chicago city workers, undercutting a pillar of Mayor Rahm Emanuel's strategy to stabilize one of the nation's most troubled pension systems.

The justices ruled the changes would violate the rights of city workers and retirees protected under the Illinois constitution. The Emanuel administration had argued that the changes came as part of an agreement under which the city would increase its annual contributions to two of the city's four pension funds to ensure they remain solvent.

Why The Belgians Only Questioned Abdeslam For One Hour Over Four Days

Belgian police questioned prime terror suspect Salah Abdeslam for just one hour between his arrest on Friday and the devastating Brussels attacks four days later because he was 'tired', raising fears that they missed the chance to stop the atrocities.

In the latest in a long list of bungles, the hour-long interrogation at a Bruges prison on Saturday produced no intelligence about the impending carnage because investigators took a chronological approach, asking first about the Paris attacks in November.

This was in spite of the discovery of bomb making materials and Abdeslam's fingerprints at a Schaerbeek safe house days before and mounting evidence that the terror cell was active and ready to strike.

Pope Francis Washes the Feet of Muslim Refugees, Blames Weapons Manufacturers for Brussels Attack

"Three days ago, there was a gesture of war, of destruction, in a city of Europe by people who don't want to live in peace," he said. "Behind that gesture there were arms manufacturers, arms traffickers, who want blood, not peace, who want war, not brotherhood," he said.

Note that the attacks were all bombings using home-made explosives. Sadly we seem to be stuck with a pope who's just not up to the demands of the times, preferring instead to pursue his usual leftist hobby-horses.

Le Shock: Rolling Stone Rape Hoaxer 'Jackie' Doesn't Want to Answer Questions Anymore

The woman known as Jackie who shocked the world with her lurid tale of being gang-raped at a University of Virginia fraternity party doesn't want to answer any more questions as part of a lawsuit.

...A judge has given Eramo's attorneys seven hours to depose Jackie, but because of the sheer volume of communications between her and Erdely, and the fact that Eramo would have to share the time with Rolling Stone's attorneys, the U.Va. dean is asking for another three hours. Naturally, Jackie and her attorney don't want to talk anymore, and Jackie especially doesn't want to talk about her rape claims. . . . The same Jackie who told an untrue story to the media now wants the media to leave her alone.

Snopes Lamely Tries to Exonerate Emory Crybullies, Gets Facts Wrong

WHAT'S TRUE: Students at Emory University gathered in protest after pro-Trump graffiti appeared overnight; administrators investigated the graffiti as it appeared outside designated areas for chalk markings.

WHAT'S FALSE: "Emergency counseling" was offered to or demanded by students; Emory students complained that their "safe spaces" had been violated; students were afraid of or traumatized by the chalk markings.

Well Snopes doesn't outright lie but they do always give the benefit of the doubt to the left in any way they can.

Maryland Considers Removing the Phrase "Northern Scum" from Its State Song

Garry Shandling's Benevolent Spirit

And then I looked at the empty seat next to me and it dawned on me. My seatmate for the next six hours was going to be the man whose hair style I had tried to copy through most of high school, with much hair mousse and little success. The man I wanted to be if I ever grew up, because he made people laugh while he told them the truth, which, back in the late eighties and early nineties, was still a novelty.

Shandling plopped into the window seat. He was, like most male celebrities I've met, perfectly muscular and trim. He had three books with him, whose titles I now forget, and I think he intended to read all of them during the long flight. I mentioned the similarities in our names, and for the next six hours we couldn't stop talking. I can't even remember about what. I drank nervously, trying to time my jokes along with his. My jokes were straining and full of strategies; his were effortless-not jokes at all but bulletins from a complicated man travelling through a particularly funny band of the space-time continuum. We were staying at different resorts, and he invited my then-fiancée and me to dinner at his place.

...I invited him to our wedding. He couldn't make it, but, a week before the ceremony, case upon case of wine arrived from California. We exchanged e-mails about life and love. We made plans to connect in Los Angeles, but it never quite came together. "It's always about the work," he wrote in one e-mail.

He sent us so much great wine, I was never able to finish all of it. This summer I will go through the last of his stock. You're supposed to celebrate a great life when it's over, but I refuse to do so. I don't want to raise my glass to him. I want to meet him on his favorite spirit trail on the Big Island. I want to see him in those shorts of his, beneath a giant dome of afternoon light.

Note that the attacks were all bombings using home-made explosives. Sadly we seem to be stuck with a pope who's just not up to the demands of the times, preferring instead to pursue his usual leftist hobby-horses.

Then how do they find the second top ten? Totally different system? Has to be tied to the hash somehow.

And how is MUMR not in the top ten? I guess if you get deleted it doesn't add them.

87 Pope Francis Washes the Feet of Muslim Refugees, Blames Weapons Manufacturers for Brussels Attack

Leftists, like the Pope, are willfully ignorant. And this is, from their perspective, a good thing. Because to leftists, reality is malleable.

If we all believe the "right" things collectively, it means that the universe will change to be more "right".

The Pope is a not a Christian, but an adherent of the left, so it makes sense they he would hold to their "faith".

I don't like De Grassy's use of the subjunctive. As a first test, it just sounds awkward. But secondly, it would be quite possible for Batman to be blind.

I might recast my argument thus, "If Batman were female, he would wear panties", vs. "If Batman was a boy, he would be shorter."

"If he were blind" just strikes me as grammatically wrong.

155 A field day I am having over thought of being in control of what the womyns wear.

This has been one hell of week for me, so maybe such happy thoughts will help. As I mention a few nights, I lost a very beloved, and most favored cat.

And then early Saturday morning, my father fell trying to get up and go to the bathroom . We I got there, he looked "ashen grey" colored and his skin was "cold and clammy". I've always heard those expression used, and this was a textbook example. I checked his BP and it was hypertensive crisis level, 190-200/90 - 100. He couldn't maintain his balance, and trying to made him so nauseous he would throw up.

Of to the hospital he went, protesting as I called the ambulance. Anyway, they're keeping in there for observation, and haven't figured out exactly what's wrong. They are thinking TIA or small stroke. Other than the BP and the vertigo, all the lab results were normal for a bunch of stuff they looked at.

Their neurologist did a detailed exam, and he thinks he detected something abnormal but small (very subtle), and is ordering a detailed MRI of his brain.

When the likes of the limp-wristed appeaser in chief, the Benghazi b!tch, or the other commie running for the Dem nomination think about bringing down the nation, do they imagine the world in flames and death on a large scale? If they did, would they care? I guess I shouldn't wonder, anyway, because, theirs is a process of "thought" alien to me, and impossible of my comprehension.

I'm no mind reader, but I doubt that a world in flames is the *imagined* result, even if it is a probable one.

Most people think "it will be different this time," it will work out okay, etc.

I think Ogabe wants to punish people he dislikes and achieve some sort of imagined "balance in the force" by elevating others at the expense of his countrymen.

I think Bernie thinks he can really reorder society more wisely than you can manage your own life, which is, of course, mathematically impossible even if it weren't stupid.

Hillary's in it for the power and graft.

This is all based on their personal histories, not on mind-reading.

Now, my original replies were very informative and went into great detail regarding escapements, accuracy, power sources, displays, and the like....but they've been getting shorter and shorter as he keeps asking (and he keeps ignoring my sage advice).

222 A USMC sniper was real good at his job, and he had a method. He would yell out some insult at the enemy and when someone stood up to reply, BANG - one less insurgent!

After every mission, the company commander would ask "How many insurgents have you shot today?"

However, on this particular day when asked about the number killed, he reported, "Five killed and I let one go, sir."

"Let one go?" roared the company commander. "What do you mean, you let one go?"

"Well, sir, I yelled out 'Osama is a Homo!' Then this big insurgent stood up and yelled 'Hillary is a Bitch!' I just couldn't shoot a fellow Republican!"

234 Hmmm... State employee pensions can't be cut or renegotiated or anything. The chance of amending the state constitution so it isn't a suicide pact for the state is very low. So, what to do?

If you can't afford to pay $X each month for Y retirees, because X*Y is more than Z (the available funds to pay), and raising tax rates won't actually increase tax revenues because you are past the peak of the Laffer curve, then there is only one way to balance the equation.... reduce the current number of recipients until the number of retirees is affordable. I will leave it as an exercise of the reader to determine the optimum method for such an activity.

Er, guys? Mr. an Mrs. retiree? You <i>sure</i> you don't want to consider renegotiating your pension payout? I'm sure the people of the state don't want to make things personal. But back them into a corner, and give them no good way out, then all the ways out are... <i>bad</i>.

We had a fun day... we did "Build-A-Bloody" and mimosa stations and lots of appetizers and a cheesy potatoes and ham and chicken piccata and lasagna and we beat the rain and got in an all-age Easter egg hunt with some golden eggs that had instant lottery tickets in them. (My dad actually won forty dollars!) And a chocolate fountain and three kinds of cake and a pie. And who doesn't like a holiday that has bowls of pastel-colored candy on every side table? And Mass this morning was really beautiful and moving. So, while a lot of work for me, it was pretty much a great Easter. One thing that sounds crappy to complain about: a lot of people brought flowers as hostess gifts and the house smells like a funeral parlor. Maybe I can take some of these arrangements to a retirement home or something tomorrow.

The echo chambers at the top of all organizations reacted to increased communication by systematically routing such messages to nowheresville. Even though politicians receive thousands more emails today than they received letters two decades ago -- they send them all unrelated focus-grouped pablum in response and actually spend less time listening-to and thinking-about what their constituents actually want. Emails to retail establishments get forwarded to PR firms.




With a firehose of communication, today's actors are parched compared to executives of yesteryear -- who had to cluster together under a spigot to get a drop.

246 Let me further elucidate the "contact" problem by using a story from the past. Used to be, if you were travelling the US for business, you were likely spending time in Pullman cars -- essentially, hotel rooms on railway carriages, criss-crossing the USA on expense accounts.




One business traveller -- and then, as now, this meant top-dollar -- was attacked by bedbugs in his room. Incensed, he wrote a letter (dictated it to his secretary) to the President of the Pullman Coach Company complaining of the infestation.



He got a letter back from the President of the Company, stating how shocked and upset he was that such vermin could have found their way into a Pullman Coach; how the Company was dedicated to the highest standards of comfort, safety, and hygiene; how he had personally stormed into the Operations Department and demanded that the entire train be taken offline to be fumigated; and how all the linens and mattresses had been removed from the train cars in question "for special processing" and replaced with new.



Somewhat depreciating the customer's satisfaction from this missive, there was also a note paper-clipped to the front of it that read, "send this SOB the bedbug letter -- WHS"



The tendency to blow-off customers has a long and noble pedigree....but the technological ability to do so is of more recent vintage.



In the "funny story", the actual executive read the letter. He'd read enough of such letters in the past to know the right sort of response and composed it. And he'd personally directed his minion to respond to this letter with the appropriate response. You might contrast this with my experience with the local Congressional Representative, Mike Honda. About four years ago, I sent a one-page letter outlining a particular technical problem in the current wording of pending legislation. I received a response that cited four different concerns where "Mike was working for me" [none of which applied to the issue I was highlighting] -- all of which I found completely offensive.....and I've received fundraising mailers every few months, since.



Automation has made it possible to shit on "the little people" en masse, while claiming to have "dealt with" ten-times the volume of "customer contacts".

263 Well, the ONT is less desolate than I expected at this hour.

I'm normally a dedicated lurker, but I am too tired to sleep and hospitals are a whole lot noisier at odd hours than I expected. And in less than four hours, they're going to Commit Medicine on me, so I thought I'd at least say hello.

Plus, I have this theory.... Apparently my blood is disappearing and is not being found in the usual hiding places, which has annoyed the doctors. So clearly, the answer is: aliens. Right? You have to figure their science makes advances too. So they've made the leap from those unpleasant cavity searches to getting their human blood samples with some sort of teleportation device. Obviously. So you heard it here first. And no, smarties, I am not on any strong pain pills yet.

And by the way, I am trying to maintain my occasionally cheerful attitude by reading the ONT, so just remember, A MAN'S LIFE COULD DEPEND ON YOUR JOKES! No pressure, though.

Wish me luck.

271 Joseph of Arimathea was a very wealthy man, a member of the Sanhedrin, and a secret follower of Jesus. He went to Pilate after the cruxifiction and asked for Jesus' body and went as far as donating his own hand-hewn burial crypt for the interment of Jesus body.

A friend of Joseph asked him: "Why have you donated such an expensive tomb to one who has died in such a disgraceful manner?"

Joseph smiled slightly and said that: "Jesus only needs it for the weekend."

276 Awake again. This isn't right. I fell asleep around 11 expecting to be out fresh in the morning with some actual work to do. Hopefully a bit of exercise will knock me out again.

I went through a lot of stuff in my storage tonight and I'm very close to eliminating that locker entirely. My mother, who has a serious hoarding problem, though not like the horror shows on TV, has passed that gene on to me. She has a big locker and I have the smallest they offer. I recently got her to get rid of some storage tubs full of yarn and cloth. She used to knit and do clothing repairs and modifications, and that was great but she hasn't touched the knitting needles in nearly twenty years nor sewn on a missing button in that time either. I don't begrudge her that. By this point I should be able to do that myself, though most of the repairs have been for cheap clothes that would only be suitable for housework afterward and so I soon have far more of that than I can store while needing to buy newer stuff for jobs that require a certain level of appearance even it gets a bit dirty. The blue collar end of IT.

So that freed up those big tubs and column in her locker where they were stacked. She has far, far more to sort through as so much of this stuff wasn't even her but stuff from us kids she held on to after we tried to discard it, or clothes she has worn in thirty years, and just stuff that doesn't have a meaningful place in our lives any more. Her locker is costing well over a $100 a month while mine is about a grand annually that I can no longer excuse as it is a horrible self-indulgent waste. The problem is that hoarding old keepsakes and mementos can really get out of control. I'm not one for the wearing of hats, even when it is suggested due to the intensity of sun while working outside, but the number of baseball caps I have from various trade shows going back decades would outfit a couple of teams. The only problem is they're all unique and thus unsuitable. Some things are a bit useful if there is a place to keep them against future need, like the shoulder bags with places for a laptop and lots of zippered pockets and such that were so often the way companies like Sony and Nintendo handed out their press kits. The hats, bags, shirts from companies that are long, long defunct and largely unremembered can be strange monuments to failure. When keeping that museum is a mounting expense I have to move on.

The items that made me feel the worst were the collected box of long obsolete gaming accessories or other gadgets that seemed like a good buy at the time because the retailer was dumping them at a fraction of their original price. All well and good if they got used but all too often they were excess to need and the packages were never opened, and still had the markdown stickers on them. Cumulatively their bulk consumes space and requires a bigger locker than might otherwise have been used, which in turn meant throwing good money after bad. Part of my mind couldn't help keeping a running tally and considering the amount of standing debt it would cancel. Plus the difficult understanding that these purchases happened in the first place from trying to fill an empty space with things instead of what was really missing.

Such is life.
