Overnight Open Thread (15 Apr 2016)

Lies progressives have told me about income and taxation.

Super PACs

You know, this discussion on Super PACs would be a lot better if it didn't focus so much on GOP donors. So where are all the uber rich liberals like Silicon Valley folks and Hollywood weirdos? Plus, where's the discussion of union donations where in 2012, they donated over $141 million mostly to Democrats.

Rooney Rule

Sure, why not? The world is becoming a more dangerous place so let's focus on gender and skin color vice you know, actual requirements for the job. Recipe for success right? Pentagon proposal on 'Rooney Rule' for minority officers raising internal concerns.

One-Liners: After The Kill

E-Cig Scare Tactics

Um, they sure do try to make it seem like e-cigs are exploding all over the place but the reality is most do not. The ones that seem to be exploding are ones that are heavily modded or shoddily constructed, not the mainstream ones most are using. I've vaped for 7 plus years now and have never had an issue.

Recycling

Hmmmm. Wonder how much it cost to extract? Apple's recycling efforts are saving it a fortune.

The firm pulled 61,357,800 pounds of raw materials out of discarded devices, including 2,204 pounds worth of gold. Cult of Mac consulted the day's metal prices and found that the gold alone was worth $40 million. In addition, the company pulled out 3 million pounds of copper (worth $6.4 million) and 4.5 million pounds of aluminum ($3.2 million).

Naked 3D Fitness Tracker

Um, I'm pretty sure this will be targeted by hackers in no time. Naked 3D fitness tracker, a smart mirror and app that tracks a 3D model of a person's body over time. Then again, your smart TV, your cell phone and anything already connected to the internet is spying on you already.

Emojis

\_(ツ_/. Study finds we have no idea what we're saying when we use emojis. I refuse to use 'em.

Science

Han Solo

Ok, they're taking this female lead only thing a bit too far with these new Star Wars movies. I keed, I keed. It's just a cosplay outfit. Here's who is likely to play young Han Solo.

Corgi Police Dogs?

Wut? Will Corgis make good police dogs?

The liberal and sane Pat Condell comments on the pro-rape/anti-Western Feminism who seek to destroy any semblance of civilization in the so-oh-honorable quest for destroying the only civilization that has actually shown any tolerance for the insanity that is Feminism.

She's helped the firm sink plenty of cash into solar power projects and sustainably managed forests for the company. Hopefully, as one outfit blazes a trail for the financial benefits of environmental responsibility, others will follow."

19 And it's been well known for years that black officers are more likely to choose combat support or combat service support over combat arms. Nothing is stopping them from choosing combat arms. Most of them choose their branch because they aren't planning to make it a career. They wan't the experience and then to get out.

Grown in Nicaragua from Cuban Seed, the various leafs age no less than three years before being transformed by hand into some of the most splendid cigars in the world, made just next door in Texas City, TX.

Delicious, sublime, extraordinarily luxurious. And, they never explode.

53 Joe, I'm beginning to definitely like Cruz more and Trump less lately.

I. Just. Want. Hillary. Defeated.

But no. If there's one thing that's core to the conservative mindset these days, it's that it's so much more fun to bash each other, mess everything up, snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, and then feel like victims. I'm ready to give up even though something in me just won't let myself do it.*

He proved it was possible to lose more of his mind than he already had and called the Horde racist for not completely renouncing Trump over something *that hadn't actually happened*.

I always respected him and thought his non-attorney-hating posts were very worthwhile. It makes me sad to see him completely lose it, especially over something that a 2 day wait would have proved was a false story.

For the record AmishDude is banned but not ban-banned. Which means he can come back if he promises to refrain from any more anti-Trump bad behavior. However he admitted himself that he probably couldn't contain himself while the election is going on so he's keeping his distance from the blog.

If they had reported News, and not given overblown opinions.... if they had stayed even partially neutral....

They could have given themselves a big boost into becoming a real alternative to the MSM...

Instead... they have chosen sides... and the sites have become pretty nasty.... not talking issues but constantly impugning character AND veracity.... and sometimes sanity of the candidates...

And this is sites on ALL sides.... from Drudge to Breitbart to here....

Missed opportunity IMO....

I wouldn't say they're painful to me, but I definitely don't enjoy them. They're just there, a fact of life as much as a rising tide that you realize too late might actually be a tsunami. You have to decide whether to become passive or act, all the while unsure whether either will make a difference.

Whatever problems flame fights might cause, there really aren't that many other options out there. A lot of websites have been closing their comments lately, and the ones that haven't have killing the ability to be truly anonymous--your actual info is on the site somewhere.

I apologize but I like the bar fights. Frankly I think the Romney bashing last election in the comments were way harsher than anything we see here against Trump. One reason is he has more defenders than Romney did.

171 Tim in GA, I've tried to be careful not to attack Trump's supporters. I had a foot over there myself up to Friday last week (voted 4 C, 2 T out of 6 choices). Yeah on Saturday I went 24 C, 2 blank.

The supporters aren't the problem. The problem is a GOPe which has created that constituency. Cruz has been courting the #nevertrump crowd, which I suppose he does have to do eventually, but ... Trump's still in the race. Which means his supporters, and the people who are still T-curious like I was, also still exist in races Cruz still has to win.

Cruz's supporters can't be assholes to Trump's. And I suspect a lot of the people who are being assholes aren't even Cruz's supporters, really, but are butthurt ex-Rubio supporters lashing out

Interesting story behind that.

The Rose Byrd coart declared the death penalty to be in violation of the California constitution. The people of California in the '70's responded by adding Section 26 of Article I (the state Declaration of Rights) that explicitly said that the death penalty didn't violate anyone's rights.

When Rose Byrd and two other hippies were up for retention in 1986, they were kicked out of office when the Iron Duke won re-election.

To this day, California is the only state that has the death penalty protected under their Bill/Declaration of Rights...

We care about the Manson crew (more than about the crew who killed, say, Channon Christian) because they gave a lot of liberal Californians the sads. They were white hippies; they were one of them. If we are honest with ourselves we will admit this.

245 Trump made them switch from a spring league to a fall (read: take on the NFL, toe to toe) league.

He did but by that time it was pretty much over anyway. He believed that was the only way to keep the league alive, but it was too late. I doubt he was right; competing with the NFL is a bad move, but it wasn't working in the spring, either.

What's interesting about watching that one and the show about the ABA was how much those alternate leagues influenced the main leagues they competed against. The XFL did the same thing, actually.

258 Compared to the rest of the societal experimentation (bathrooms, anyone?), letting a Mansonite free when she's spent nearly 50 years in prison for something she did when she was 19 isn't that big of a worry for me.

Agreed, assuming she's fully renounced Manson and her past.

I've not fully given up on the concepts of compassion and forgiveness. I'd have had no problem with her having been executed for her crimes, but she wasn't. There comes a time when prison no longer serves any further purpose as a deterrent or protecting the public.

It's entirely possible that she could do more good for society outside of prison than behind bars as an elderly prisoner.

If you had only one jail cell and you had a reasonably contrite 70-year-old Mansonite or a 23-year-old that bullshitted his way into a women's restroom and molested two 12-year-old girls -- which one would you rather see in that cell?

I'm not sure. I have doubts about ALL of them. I don't just mean that they're killers, but, that there is some doubt about their role/s in The Family. "Followers"? "Dupes"? Maybe not. If Manson has to carry the not-to-be-released thing, they all should too.

To revisit the gory details...I think Leslie Van Houten was in on the La Bianca murders, not the Sharon Tate murders a few days before.

She held down Mrs. LaBianca while she was stabbed. Maybe stabbed herself and carved some words, I'm not clear on that.

Whatever. I want to hear a clear renunciation of her former violence and alliance w/ C Manson before she's released.

Now the question is what happens to someone who has been imprisoned for over 40 yrs? She has no skills to survive on the outside, she's maybe 66?

Does she have any family (outside of the Manson nuts) who will support her when she's released?

325 The LaBianca murders were pretty gruesome, too. A retired grocer and his wife. People like you and me. Possibly more scary than the Sharon Tate murder. That one, taken alone, you could sort of dismiss as "weird shit happens in Hollywood." Not so the LaBiancas. Hits closer to home.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at April 16, 2016 12:07 AM

Yep. It was pretty bad. The LaBianca killings may have been a cover for the Tate ones... not the vaunted race war inspiring thing. Just dirty dealings dressed up as something else. Van Houten did the LaBianca one, but not Cielo Drive. It's interesting that Van Houten demanded that Manson didn't really have the control over her that constituted the narrative. There were others that stated some interesting shit about the family that was not followed up. They were all nuts and all doing their own shit. Manson liked to think he was some sort of demi god, but they were all using each other. Very possibly, anyway. Will never get the answers now.

I've just about had it ya'll with the prolapsing. You know Hillary's type; she has a thing for the Lena Dunham type, you know fat, sloppy, and malodorous. Well, I made the mistake of letting her see that video of Lena sitting on the commode naked eating cake and it turned Hillz on so much, she dropped the pantsuit and the Depends.

She started furiously friggin' herself, and then in a little bit, she hollered, "Huma, get in her quick and tweak my nipples, I think I'm gonna squirt!".
Well she squirted all right. My God. Ever seen that video of an elephant giving birth?

There was a god-awful trumpeting racket that would've scared a bulldog off a meat wagon, and gush of fluid and a mass of something nasty that popped out.

Well, she had done squirted out her vagina, inside out, with the uterus hanging off the end, pissed out her bladder and half her kidneys following, not to mention shitting out her rectum and over half her colon.

It was all hanging out in the most god awful and foul smelling mess you've ever seen. I called the house doctor to come quick, we've got a medical emergency. He said hell no, we don't pay him enough so I was on my own and had to just cram it all back in best as I could.

We've tried to get her fixed. Everything looks sort of gangrenous and she's gonna need much of it anymore, so I tried to get them to just cut it off. But every damn gynecologist we take her too takes one look down there and runs out of the room screaming. Pussies, all of them.

So I'm just at my wits end here. If she has another blowout when's she debating Bernie on live TV, well, it wouldn't be pretty and I'd be fired for sure.

Van Houten should have been put to death long years ago. But she was not. And we are now in circumstances where judges are dumping convicted criminals out of California jails due to overcrowding. Unfortunately, it has also long been the practice of California prosecutors to both overcharge in the initial indictment, then agree to whatever lesser charges add up to the "correct" prison term according to their progressive selves. This means that someone who killed three people in drug deals gone bad and the prosecutors had down cold is serving a term for sixteen counts of "possession with intent to distribute", with a term of 35 years -- and is about to get sprung by some judge who doesn't know or care that it was originally 3 counts of murder 1.



And I return to my point. If the fuckin' libs who infest this state aren't going to incarcerate the guilty, they should at least try to incarcerate the dangerous. I'd rather have a current sex offender behind bars than a 70-year-old who murdered 50 years ago.

In the hierarchy of PC causes, feminist grievances against Western men trumps Western men's right to due process.

But Islamic anger against the west trumps Western women's right to live in a society governed by feminist values.

So they accept their own destruction according to this system.

It's like Kafka's story In The Penal Colony. There is a toture machine symbolizing an intricate, insane system of values that the commandant uses to torture and kill prisoners. Finally, the commandant realizes he himself is condemned, straps himself in, and kills himself. Feminists are like that commandant. IMHO one of his best stories, up there with Metamorphosis.

Kasabian, that's it. And, yeah, that was the 2004 movie - from her perspective, which mat be the the most terrifying of all. To be in the middle of that with a shred of sanity.

As to motives - I'm sure none of it is cut and dried. I'm reminded - I live in Eugene, Oregon, and NOVA (or maybe Frontline) did the story on Kip Kinkel and Thurston High a few years after. They put forth this theory and that, regarding motives and causes. I'll never forget, afterwards, just here in Oregon, they aired an interview with a couple of shrinks that had examined him. And what they basically said was, no, the program didn't get anything wrong, per se, but what it left out was - the kid is batshit crazy. His mind just doesn't work right, and there's no real explanation for batshit crazy.

400 As to motives - I'm sure none of it is cut and dried. I'm reminded - I live in Eugene, Oregon, and NOVA (or maybe Frontline) did the story on Kip Kinkel and Thurston High a few years after. They put forth this theory and that, regarding motives and causes. I'll never forget, afterwards, just here in Oregon, they aired an interview with a couple of shrinks that had examined him. And what they basically said was, no, the program didn't get anything wrong, per se, but what it left out was - the kid is batshit crazy. His mind just doesn't work right, and there's no real explanation for batshit crazy.

Posted by: Vertov at April 16, 2016 12:50 AM

Yeah, they were all batshit crazy all right. The thing about the Family and the killings was that Bugliosi wanted to nail Manson as the prime reason for it all and scoop up the rest as blindfollowers. To be fair to Bugliosi, the alternative would have been extremely messy to pursue and prosecute. Manson himself helped Bugliosi no end, due to his ego. IIRC, Manson wasn't a participant in either the Tate or LaBianca killings. He was involved,, though. People in, or involkved with the Family stated that it was a mess at that time, with Manson's power on the wane. Apparently, some occupant/s of Cielo Drive were under investigation for being major drug dealers and sold to the Family and/or the Bikers who were mostly running the show at that time. One or more insiders believed that it was a drug and/or cash raid, that Manson didn't even know happened. He sent them back to cover their tracks by making it look like The Panthers? or some race group did it. The LaBianca one was to throw the cops off. Tex Watson was supposed to have been the planner of Cielo Drive. Apparently, according to what can be gleaned from the conflicting accounts and the formal prosecution. More drug dealing and money, than Helter Skelter, per se.

Posted by: otho at April 16, 2016 01:10 AM (EWg9n)

401 Otho - my understanding is also that Manson wasn't at either scene. Hadn't heard so much about the drug connections, but nothing surprising there. Plus, wasn't Tex/Charlie involved in another couple of drug murders?

405 MS has just become a permitless concealed carry state. As long as you're legally entitled to own a gun (pistol), you can tote it, concealed or not. I don't think the law allows you to conceal carry a rifle in your shorts, but there are pistol versions of the AR-15, for those so inclined. Anyhow, check the law yourself before strapping up here; I'm no lawyer.

Meanwhile, in IL they still require a Firearm Owners ID card (with accompanied background check and fees etc etc) to even purchase ammo. bwahaha

406 No, the Cubs might really go the distance this year. They are good. But of course, they have to contend with the elephant in the NL Central - the Cards.

The Cards really have made a pact with the damn devil. That's the only way you can explain how setbacks or changes that would throw any other team for a loop for at least a season or so have no effect on them. They don't miss a beat. They lose LaRussa and Pujols - hey no prob! Matheny takes them to the post-season! The guys other teams bring up from AAA play like - guys who were just called up from AAA. The guys the Cards call up step into Busch Stadium and start playing like they're old veterans. Every year they have some wunderkinder - last season it was Piscotty, this year it's Hazelbaker or whatever that dude's name is.

I am convinced they are sacrificing virgins in the clubhouse or something.

I figure that at this point, I have two options:

A)Appease the city asshat & allow him access to my backyard to take a pic or 17 and get him off my back.

B)Continue denying him access. He then has no proof that I have NOT complied with his demands.

I have been to court twice now without ever uttering a word (other than "good morning, your honor" or "thank you, your honor"). HE keeps asking for a continuance.

Isn't it his duty to prove that I am not in compliance with whatever city code?

*FWIW, I've come to court twice now with a dozen pics of backyard & house, but city asshat wants to come into my gated backyard. I keep telling him "No. I'll see you in court, but I'm not giving the gov't access to my property without a warrant."

IIRC... Manson was present at both scenes, but, after the fact at the Tate place and before at the LaBianca? Yeah, Tex Watson was not a nice guy and was far from the schlub he was made out to be. Same with the girls. At least one major player in the family, who had no reson to fib stated that Manson had become so drug addled and irrelevant at that stage, that he seized the Tate event as his chance to reassert his authority by "fixing" everything for them and getting his pimp hand back.

Posted by: otho at April 16, 2016 01:39 AM (EWg9n)

414 I never had nightmares about Manson, etc., even though we lived but an hour's drive from the scenes of the crime.

But even then, in my 5th grade mind, I had already laid in defenses (that I hid from my Mom) at the apartment. She never did figure out why there was always broken glass outside of every approachable window, door or stair.

Nor did she figure out where a few of the sharp kitchen knives went to. But I knew.

Did I mention that I was already ostracized by many in school, because of my conservative views on life and the body politic?

415 Well, I am out for the night. Tired, i am. Spent all afternoon doing a thorough cleaning on the interior of my '08 Suburban. Got enough dog hair off the seats to knit a new dog. Used the rug shampooer and a brush to get mud out of the rubber floor mats, and dust off the top of the dash and door interiors.


Managed to sprain a finger on my right hand while taking an interior panel off to retrieve the rear seatbelt. (The vehicle is an ex-police unit, and had contained a prisoner cage in the rear, so they had unbolted the lower and top rear seat belt anchors, and let the retractor wind up as much as it could, and then just left the loose ends of the belt dangle inside the door pillar, where it made a rattle. Swift, eh? But I only had to come up with one bolt on each side to make it all good again.


Since this vehicle is likely to become my go-to go-to-work rig for the foreseeable future, it's time to get it in as nice shape as i can manage.

420 MS has just become a permitless concealed carry state.

I'm very pro-gun, and have a carry permit and collection to prove it.

I'm not totally on board with permitless carry.

The first carry permit class I took was very, very good, using real-world examples that helped explain the nuances of self-defense law in my state.

Could (and should) someone research those laws on their own without taking a class? Yes.

Will most people do so if they don't have to? No.

Is the requirement that I take a $99 class every five years an overly burdensome restriction of my 2nd Amendment rights? In my opinion, no.

I don't want someone going to jail because they didn't fully understand the law. Neither do I want someone to refrain from exercising their right to self defense because they were unsure if they were allowed to under the laws of their state.

"I've come to court twice now with a dozen pics of backyard & house, ..."


I'm not a lawyer, and I don't even play one on ... well, actually, I've been to Small Claims Court twice, as, effectively, the lead for my condo association, and won both times. Therefore, beware, in the extreme, of what I'm about to write.

IF YOU are confident of your case (and only you and your lawyer can make this determination), the next time you're before the judge and the lawyer asks for a continuance, immediately after he finishes making the motion, INTERRUPT with an objection.

Object that he's previously asked for a continuation TWICE before, and is only trying to delay the case, and then, without stopping, hold up your photos in front of the court and tell the judge that you have had these the last 2 times, and they prove your position.

The judge may have to hear you out.

This is risky, and could go very wrong for you. But you might win immediately.

My problem with Alienwar/Dell isn't about politics.

I bought my first alienware in 2006 (I had a Dell that died after four years). In 2008, the Alienware laptop died and I, after much waste of time, got a replacement. That replacement died after less than four years. It was a hardware failure. I contacted their Indian help service and after about half a day got permission to send my laptop in for fixing. I got the "fixed" laptop back and within half an hour of booting it died again due to hardware failure. I went through the entire song-and-dance and sent it in again. I got it back and it again died after half an hour of initial booting. I still owed money on it and they wouldn't do anything about it.

F**k them.

Labconco goes beyond that, because some piss-ant tech dared tell an expert with gloveboxed what to do.

453 Yes, ma'am! I use only the finest quality duct tape to attach my cardboard roofing.

Same here.

Wait, we are still using code for Hooker Enclosure, right?

454 I also did an eye exam this afternoon and found that it's not my imagination -- I really can't see what I'm doing.

Last eye exam, I got driving glasses & computer glass - not reading glasses - & they help a lot! But forgetting which one I'm wearing is ... strainful ...

I hope "they" can figure something out for you.

That's actually a good idea.

461 Well only sort of, and bump on the track around where the starting grid is pitched a Manor Racing car sideways. The bump might be trapping water aggravating the problem.

463 The thing about f1 stoppages is it could be 15 min, could be longer, could be the end if it's determined it's unsafe. And I'm loosing sleep for it. I hope this brings great shame on all the Chinese government and people.

471 Hamilton isn't getting in a lap so will be starting from the pit lane, there's still issues with the car. Vettel tops the board, Gutierrez of Haas failed to get to Q2.

Posted by: Skip at April 16, 2016 03:40 AM (Dpy/y)

472 Oy.

I like watching auto racing but too much to do tonight. Chores wait for no man.

Hope it is a good race, Skip.

Posted by: Adriane the Ethnic Cuisine @ the Raceway Critic ... at April 16, 2016 03:50 AM (AoK0a)

473 My two drivers are Hamilton and Grosjean, with Haas I want to see Gutierrez do well.
3 minutes to go in session and Grosjean is in 13 in the knock out zone.

Posted by: Skip at April 16, 2016 03:56 AM (Dpy/y)

474 Hulkenberg lost a tire on the track ending Q2, well I'm going to try to go back to sleep, it doesn't matter much if it's the Ferraris or Rosberg who get pole.
The race is tomorrow starts at 2am, pre race 1:30am.

Thanx for the linx, Maet. Loved the one-liners after the kill.

477 No idea when the movie came out but it's odd my Mom felt the same about Leopold and Loeb in Chicago in the 40s.

I think they killed some kid her age and she was freaked out about it for several yrs. Had bad dreams about it.

Someone should have told her they were ghey. For sex/thrill kill murders, men only seem to murder according to sexual orientation.

478 Rosberg took pole, but a surprise for 2nd Riccardo for Red Bull then the Ferraris of Raikkonen then )Vettel.

483 Ahh Corgi's.....have had 3 of the little shites.. Their jaws and teeth are friggin special. Big dog teeth in a little dogs body. When they bite they don't let go, those jaws are locked, and they can chew through a ham bone in nothing flat. Be very wary of a Corgi's bite.

You are in my neck of the woods! enjoy. But looking at your nick surely you can rig something up to get out of this situation can't you?

But it took 5 years and 3 supercomputers. O, and a Stargate we knew nothing about.
