Overnight Open Thread (4-18-2016)

Quote of the Day I

Transgender and unisex bathroom regulations empower terrible people. Sexual predators are diabolical, and the worst thing the law can do is to make access to women and girls in their most vulnerable and private moments easy for predators. It's insane.

Bathroom controversies demonstrate the evolving priorities of the radical left. Protecting women from harassment is yesterday's fight. Today it's time to smash gender and eradicate sex differences. After all, only a bigot would be offended by the sight of another woman's penis.

-- David French

Quote of the Day II

Ah. So the poem has vanished, and so has its creator. And, given the backbone ZDF are showing, what are the chances of them or any other German media outlet broadcasting any further provocations to Erdogan in the future?

At this stage, Ankara's strongman doesn't really need to win in court, does he? He's already nuked the gag, and damaged the guy's career. He has, in effect, imposed Islamic concepts of free speech on a major western power. Get used to it, because they've only just begun.

--Mark Steyn in Where the Streets Have No Jokes

Quote of the Day III

The daily quandary for the morally vain is how to trumpet their greater sensitivity on issues that concern all fair-minded people. The answer is always the same: pretend someone else doesn't care and denounce them. Hence they smear others as racists, homophobes, misogynists or in Blair's case, of being unsympathetic about domestic violence.

-- Chris Kenny on the faux outrage over Tim Blair's mocking of the ABC's special domestic violence leave granted to employees

Quote of the Day IV

It started off as a bit of basic home improvement, but it ended up with the discovery of one of the largest Roman Villas ever found in the UK.

Quote of the Day V

What makes Everybody Wants Some!! so brave is that it reasserts some truisms that social justice warriors recently have spent a tremendous amount of energy trying to deny. First, jocks, like everybody else, are individuals. They are funny, arrogant, depressed, racist, liberal, joyful, sarcastic, and weepy. Second, the great ones have something rare: an addiction to winning, and the ability to focus on that outcome with preternatural precision. In the modern PC era of everybody-gets-a-trophy and we're-all-special, the sight of a bunch of bros swinging axes, admiring their own bodies, and never questioning the superior virtue of their goal is like seeing pictures of a medieval jousting match.

-- Mark Judge in Let's Hear It for the Bros

John McWhorter Has Had Enough of the SJW Hate on the Musical Hamilton

I was skeptical about the concept but pretty much everyone who has seen the musical Hamilton including several Cobs has raved about it. But even though it was created by and stars a minority cast, it's still somehow racist and problematic. And McWhorter who's black himself has had enough of this crap.

Enter the contesters.

As in, what is pronounced "con-TEST." The term is especially popular among identity-focused academics, the idea being that when encountering a piece of art, the intellectual's responsibility is to smoke out a sociopolitical faux pas in it. The first contestation on Hamilton to get around has been from Lyra Monteiro, a history professor at Rutgers, who (while thoroughly enjoying the show, mind you) assails Hamilton for underplaying that Hamilton was less than sustainedly committed to ending slavery, and for omitting the sheer presence of black slaves in the lives of the characters.

...To the contesters, what Hamilton was so busy creating is invalidated by the fact that slavery reigned unquestioned within it-we must, therefore, permeate the story with an issue Hamilton himself didn't prioritize during his shortish life, and judge him about that. However, this is an almost willfully uncomprehending perspective. It would be valid to utterly dismiss a political experiment founded in slavery today, indeed. However, the chance that a person can see completely beyond the ideological confines of their time is small. Even smaller are the chances that they will have the stomach to devote their entire life to fighting for a principle in the face of certain dismissal and resistance. And even smaller than this are the chances that someone will devote themselves to such a self-abnegating quest while dedicated to as massive a project as, say, creating a nation...

If today's climate of religious antiracism is any indication, however, it will be deemed urgent to take these contestings into account for future mountings of Hamilton. Get ready for versions in the 2030s with the chorus bulked out to include a few people playing slaves, and for it to become established to reinsert a slavery number Miranda actually wrote for the show but cut for time.

What any of this will have to do with America making genuine progress on race will be unclear and, ultimately, of no concern to the usual suspects. This kind of professional Cassandraism is less a proactive tool than an unchanging stance. However, the rest of us "wonderful people out there in the dark," as Norma Desmond put it in Sunset Boulevard, will in all of our benightedness continue to see Hamilton as just fine-and really, quite a bit more than fine-as it is.

Meanwhile Hamilton will be allowed to stay on the $10 bill. For now

The Wages of Socialism: Venezuela Takes a Permanent Three-Day Weekend

Everyone gets Fridays off. Why? No electricity that's why.

It's Democrats - Not Republicans - Who Have Shifted on Immigration

The standard media narrative holds that political polarization in the United States a GOP-driven phenomenon; that Republicans have gone off the deep end, and that Democrats remain sensible, centrist, and open to compromise. As we've said before, however, the truth is much more complicated. As much as many bien pensants would like to lay blame for our angry and polarized politics at the feet of racist Republicans, the Democrats' dramatic leftward pivot-on issues from the $15 minimum to immigration to the culture wars-has clearly played a major role.

Hmm I Didn't Realize That Chuck Woolery Was Also a Pundit These Days

Actually if you check out his Wikipedia page Chuck has had an interesting life - a wine consultant in the 60s, then he had a Top 40 pop hit in the 60s while working as a truck driver and later had two more hits on the country Top 40 list in the 70s while becoming famous for hosting Wheel of Fortune and then Love Connection.

Controversial: "Why Women DESTROY NATIONS * / CIVILIZATIONS - and other UNCOMFORTABLE TRUTHS"

Okay I think he makes a decent point that the optimal sexual strategy for individual women can be at odds with the best interests of their tribe/society as a whole. However historically exogamy usually meant marrying into related tribes with shared language and values or another social class within the tribe rather than a completely alien culture.

Where he is wrong though is in treating all women as a monolithic disloyal group. Young women may indeed be attracted to the Other but most marry within their own group. And once a woman has children, she's far more tied to the fate of the society she lives in than a man is. So the idea that women are fundamentally disloyal to their own societies is simply wrong. So it's easy to blame women for the current immigration problems in Europe but until recently the immigration policies in most countries enjoyed support among both sexes. In fact right now in Germany it's women - especially the younger ones - who are the most anti-immigration group of all. Because rape and assault.

I've seen every brit archaeological show produced in the past 45 years. The villa is not that big of a deal. And it is the last thing you want to find on your property in that it restricts any improvements you want to make and the sale value.

Let's create a real Palestinian state instead. And I don't mean the PLO's President for Life Mahmoud Abbas going down to the UN to give another speech. Abbas is on his 11th year of a 4-year term. The US spent $4.5 billion promoting "Palestinian democracy" and the last PLO election was ten years ago.

Hamas won. It would win today all over again.


One vote. One time. Hey, I've got a great idea -- Let's give them their own state*.

106 Let's create a real Palestinian state instead.

There is one. It's called Jordan.

And the West Bank and Gaza Strip are two distinct societies that have no love lost for each other. The idea that they could ever be part of some single state is a joke. Hamas rules gaza (with the enthusiastic backing of the Gazan slugs) while the PLO rules the West Bank (with the enthusiastic backing of the West Bank slugs). The first thing that would happen if anyone tried to make a state out of those two societies would be for them to fight and split.

Add to that the fact that Israel cannot allow a fakestinian state in the West Bank (for security purposes) and that pretty much tells one all he needs to know about the situation.

127 I mentioned Godel in the last thread, and the reason I was thinking about him was Ace's earlier reference about "if you prove a falsehood, then you can prove anything".

That is sort of the way to describe one of the results of Godel.

Godel's Theorem is pretty profound. I think the best way to boil it all down to something simple is," Only a lunatic is sure he is sane".

If a finite formal system (axioms and logic) proves it is consistent, then it is inconsistent, and consistency can be thought of as "sanity", or contradicting itself. Saying A and Not A at the same time. If it ever does that once, then it can do that for all A. Any statement can be both proved and disproved by the same system. IOW, batshit insane.

And, a consistent formal system can never answer all questions. There are always propositions that can never be proved or disproved. IOW, there will always be unknowable things.

So a sane system can never be sure it is sane, and is incomplete.

Now, completeness, "knowing Truth", capital T Truth, is thus an *infinite* thing. Knowing you are truly correct is an infinite process.

As I've mentioned before, I would like to visit relatives in Arkansas this summer. I live in Southern California.

I'd like to drive but that's turning out... expensive. I could still take some steps to reduce that (fewer stops, cheaper motels). But am wondering about flying.

Except for my ample butt. I'm not sure if I will fit into a 17.2-inch seat and don't want to have to buy two seats.

Any advice from anybody? Or at least, how can I *try out* an airplane-sized seat before I get on the plane? Try some lawn chairs at Walmart maybe?

Okay, thanks in advance to everyone who can help with this. :-)

181 Actually the Doolittle raid was 74, not 72, years ago today (yesterday in Japan).


Just happened to read the section in Toll's "Pacific Crucible" about the raid last night.


I knew the raid had played a role in tipping the balance in favor of Yamamoto's Midway operation. But I hadn't known that the Naval General Staff had sorta-kinda acceded to Yamamoto's resignation-threat extortion on the Midway proposal, but had hoped to slow-walk it to death before it happened.


The raid ended that idea quite dramatically.


Also didn't know - it actually sounds hard to credit - that PM Tojo's plane had actually flown close to one of the raiders over Tokyo Bay, and a passenger on the Japanese plane had seen and recognized the B-25 for what it was.

There are no "axioms of mathematics". There are several candidates for the foundations of mathematics but each and every one fail in some important respect. Set Theory was long considered the clear mathematical foundation but holes were found in it from the very beginning. Then more constructive possibilities were forwarded but they, too, suffer from certain shortcomings. All of this was formalized in Godel's Incompleteness Theorem.

As things stand now we have Topos Theory which provides the basis for most mathematics and also provides an infinite number of universes in which mathematics can be developed. The logics in these different universes (topoi) are varied and the mathematics that are generated in each are different. There is nothing to lead us to know which of these possible mathematical universes most closely resembles our physical universe. It is much the same as the case was with geometry - for millenia there was nothing but Euclidean geometry but once non-Euclidean forms were discovered we quickly came to know an infinite number of different geometries, and with Einstein he showed that our universe agreed more with a non-Euclidean model.

Interestingly, topos theory is simultaneously the abstraction of geometry AND logic.

Godel's proof involved modeling the formal system in question in integer arithmetic - assigning numbers to statements in the system and having the arithmetic operations on those numbers correspond to the logical operations on the statements, so he was only proving consistency or completeness shortcomings in a system that was at least complex enough to have a full representation in the integer arithmetic system.

Low customer satisfaction ratings, last I looked.

I'd watch like a hawk for specials on Southwest, rather than trying to eke it out with the likes of rock-bottom Spirit or Frontier.

Also, rather than drive versus fly as mutually exclusive options, sometimes a fly-drive combo offers the lowest total cost. Get most of the way there by air to an inexpensive destination airport. Rent a car there and drive the rest of the way.

Rock Band Boston Cancels North Carolina Shows Over 'Oppressive' Bathroom Privacy Law - Will Still Play Japan Where Gays Are Denied Healthcare

Boston? Sheesh. I remember the name, but couldn't tell you anything they did.

Sometimes just amazed at the geezers still out there. (Much less that can afford to blow off concerts for political posturing!)

Still haven't seen a downside to these laws!!

IIRC, the Boston sound was exemplified by the lead vocals by Brad Delp and the recording/engineering/mixing by lead guitarist (and EE from MIT), Tom Scholz. The vocalist took his own life as the time gap between albums grew exponentially....



And, yes, this is another stupid escalation. For everyone "coming out" against the safety of NC women and girls -- I hope you lose. I hope you lose so bad that you won't bring up the subject lest you get the stink all over yourself again. I hope this ruins some of you pathetic asswipes in a way that people stop listening to you. I hope your example makes the Dixie Chicks look like a bump in the road.

IIRC you might be older than I. Boston hit big when I was in college 1973-77.

These idiots boycotting NC have no idea what they are doing to their fanbase. GL w/ that.

307 Mother of the year contestants.

The local burb has made wide news again with more bad parents. At least this time, all the kids live.

Four kids, ages 1, 2, 7, and 8, left home alone for hours while three moms go out and party. Kids went to a neighbor to complain they were scared. Moms said a neighbor was supposed to be sitting, but neighbor said, no.

Empty beer cans, liquor bottles and prescription drugs around the house.

310 "Why Women DESTROY NATIONS * / CIVILIZATIONS - and other UNCOMFORTABLE TRUTHS"

Excellent video. He nailed it. A feminized society is unsustainable, because it will inevitably be conquered and subjugated by a masculine society. Feminism is no match for Islam.

Another thing: As Western society continues to decay and more and more people are plunged into poverty, Islam will spread. The Left has demonized and discredited Christianity for decades, so young people looking for meaning and structure in their lives will increasingly turn to Islam. So far it has mostly been blacks, but I expect to start seeing it also among whites who are on the fringes of society.

318 At the risk of sounding patriarchal, there had to be some transition period from slave to free. You can't just walk up to a slave, illiterate, penniless, hungry, no skills and say "you're free, now get lost".

Interestingly enough, as a music scholar I know that slaves who played a musical instrument and ran away were seldom recaptured, unlike non musical runaways who were usually quickly captured.

319 Heard some idiot on FNC about taxes. He said some survey said 86% of the public thought the IRS was necessary.

Given how ridiculously complicated and bloated our tax code has gotten, they are necessary.

Sure, they've been corrupted by politics (like everyone else in government), but they're a symptom of a system diseased by decades of special interest pandering.

The tax code should be reformed, but again- special interest pandering. Think of all the IRS employees, accountants, lawyers, and tax preparers who'd be out of a job with a simplified tax code. They have children to feed.

I fear that the opposite is not true. One person or an entire society can go from free to slave very quickly. All it takes is sufficient brutality, a lack of spine, or some combination of the two.

This Pope is a dope. He may be just fine theologically, but his politics are damning in and of themselves.

If I hear one more flaming liberal tell me what a great man he is, I think I will puke. Should I point out that he is cis-normative, white and male? Shouldn't that negate any gains he has as a liberal icon?

I swear, there was a putsch to oust B16, and this was the idiot they chose to put in charge.

Benedict was a good and honest man, but unfortunately, so honest that he got himself vilified in the international press early on by quoting a Byzantine Emperor's unpopular but accurate opinion about Islam. He always faced an uphill struggle from then on, and it's no wonder that he tired of it.


But Francis? My God, what a disaster for the Church. He may be a darling of the press, but the cost it's coming at is one that the institution will find increasingly difficult to bear. He's a heretic, pure and simple.

Morning, 'rons and 'ronettes. Thanks for the news, Vic.

That sidebar article by Kurt Schlicter on Bernie's parasites reminded me of a couple of old jokes, so I went and looked them up.

FIRST: at the opening of a three-day Party conference in Moscow, Premier Kosygin thundered, "Today, under our wonderful Communist system, every citizen of the Soviet Union is entitled to an electric icebox and a color television. Is there any comrade in this hall who hasn't got an electric icebox and a color television set?"

"Me,"
declared a little man in the fourteenth row.

"Ah, ha," nodded the premier. "And what s your name?"

"Plotzikov."

"Comrades,"
Kosygin said, gesturing two his aides, "see that Comrade Plotzikov gets what is coming to him."

Toward the close of the rally, another little man stood up and demanded the floor. "I suppose," sneered Kosygin, "you want to know what's happened to Comrade Plotzikov's icebox and TV set?"

"Not at all,"
the little man answered. "I want to know what's happened to Plotzikov."


SECOND: it seems that Comrade Kazotsky dropped in at the polls on election day in Moscow and was handed a sealed envelope to drop into the ballot box. An official jumped six feet when Kazotsky started to open it. "What's the big idea?" screamed the official.

"I want to see who I'm voting for," explained Kazotsky.

"You must be out of your mind!" the official stormed. "Don't you realize that this is a secret ballot?"

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

I think the GOPe is encouraging Cruz to pull his delegate games at the state level. It will deny Trump which will enrage the Trump supporters. The GOPe will sweep in claiming that Cruz is too odious to much of the base and offer a "unity" candidate.

Juan was spot on.

Paul "Totally CON-servative" Ryan has been a complete and utter failure as SOH.

He's been in congress for 20 years, has been ways and means chairman, has been budget committee chairman and is now SOH and promised, PROMISED that the house would revert back to regular order after the disaster of the CRIMNIBUS which he said was a shit sandwhich not of his making, well now that slug has failed to advance any appropriations bills and in fact we will not have a budget, which will mark a decade in which we will not have had a budget.

So what we have to look forward to is more 11th hour must pass continuing resolutions.

There should be a motion to vacate the chair.

Paul Ryan has failed at his job, he's lied to those that supported him and has generally been a disgrace.

Been doing most of my stuff on Amazon. Really haven't used PP in awhile.

But our webmaster for the work website suggested PP for a little project we are trying here. Told him we wouldn't be using PP because of the kerfuffle. Haven't heard back.

Looks like we may be changing website hosts if they are going along with the PC crap.
