Honest answer: I have no idea what is going on in the Middle East. I really don't. And I don't think anyone else does either. What happened to Egypt? Libya?


Those places are no longer on the map, so to speak. The gathering storm is there, I'm sure, but nobody is really talking about it. There and Iran, of course. That clown show in Syria is probably more of a distraction, but heck, even there, who really knows what's going on? We have nobody in Washington who does, and what, is the media going to tell us the truth??


We're fooked, is what we are.

15 Continuing the bathroom discussion...


If as a liberal, you support common sense gun control laws because it may save the life of one child,

You must support common sense bathroom access laws.

If you can restrict my exercising of a Constitutional Right because a small subset of the population will use that right in the committing of a wrong,
You must recognize the need to restrict exercising the Constitutional Right to using the bathroom of your choice.

It's Science.

And for the children


Otherwise, Polar Bears will die.

22 Since Obama can ignore laws willy nilly - I suggest that everyone simply ignore him. Nothing pisses a narcissist off like being ignored. We need to send him far enough over the edge that even the house and senate will reach the conclusion that they have to do something.

Conversation - "Did you hear Obama vanished last week?" "What?" "What a relief to be rid of him - I heard the Secret Service isn't even looking for him anymore. What happened is a mystery - one theory is that he fell into a sand trap while nobody was watching and he couldn't get out. Another is that one of DC's sewer alligators may have eaten him."

What do you think happened to him?

My libtard brother who loves to harangue the family about TECTIGCC**, actually tried doing that once. Driving a car by looking in the rearview mirror that is. We were on a rural stretch of Interstate highway and he said, "I've always wondered if you could do this."

I should have realized then that he was headed for a bad end.

Love the story of the quads - sounds like they were all a decent weight at birth, considering. I have a friend whose sister conceived triplets naturally. Used to be that in the old days if you had triplets (or more), you'd get free stuff for years and years from baby companies. Now, because of all the multiple births caused by in vitro, you don't.

56 Interesting. Spoke to lady who lived in Prague before and after communism.

Before everybody had jobs. Everybody had food. Everything was dirty and grey, falling into ruin. There was no shopping. You had to bribe to get a new refrigerator. There was a large barter/black market economy. If you were a laborer doing a job they valued, like a coal miner or a steel worker, at Christmas time a truck would go to your workplace and give you fruit like oranges and bananas, that you couldn't ordinarily purchase. You couldn't get married in a church. You couldn't collect art. You couldn't practice your religion. At weddings they would give speeches about how glorious the state was, how you would raise your children in the ways of the state

Most people are thrilled communism is gone. Except for the people in the small towns and villages. They lost jobs and didn't know how to adapt to the new economy. They didn't know how to be flexible. They miss communism. But the vast majority do not. They Hate communism. They fear Putin. They know no one would stop him

I had a similar experience when I went to Romania a few years ago. Bucharest seemed to be coming around nicely with a lot of activity and some signs or entrepreneurship, particularly amongst the younger set.

But we drove a couple hours south to where my customer had their headquarters and it was a completely different story. Miles and miles of farmland sitting unworked because most of the people had no idea what to do unless they were given orders.

We did see a few pockets of activity where it appeared whole families were out working the field, mostly with horse powered plows, wagons, etc. but that was about it.

I think it's pretty standard in areas where communist rule falls. The older, more rural generation has no clue how to adapt and the younger generation often leaves for the brighter lights of the west. See East Germany.

164 Reposted from last night, but what the heck:


Had a fascinating conversation with my State Senator's representative on the phone today. They are trying to force the state AG to define the baseline rules and definitions for transgender and, of course since he's a Democrat, he's trying his damnedest to evade and obscure the issue because he's beginning to see the legal pitfalls therein.

Neat part is that they are threatening legal action requiring the AG to clarify how one's "identity" is defined. The clever reverse Cloward & Piven point is that there seems to be a potential argument that since the sex on one's birth certificate apparently is not really definitive, then why can't I identify as a female (or Pacific Islander, etc., Rachael Dolezal call your office) and be eligible to enter my company for those sweet discriminatory government minority set-aside contracts? Why, since the sex listed on the birth certificate is redefinable by the way I feel today, can't I similarly decide that I feel like I'm sixty five and want to enroll in Medicare and start withdrawing funds from my IRA without penalty? At the other end of the age spectrum, why can't a sixteen year old say "Bartender, I know I look like I'm sixteen and that's what it says on my driver's license, but I identify as twenty-one so serve me a beer! "

Hrothgar, as to the "Why can't I identify as a privileged minority?"

My question to those who are applying for such positions is "Why DON'T you?" Seriously, if I were applying for college or a federal job right now, I Would Not. Hesistate. to self-identify as a privileged minority.

182 "172 beating the shit out of perverts or anyone else representing a threat seems like a reasonable course of action to me."

Unfortunately, you or I do not get to define what "Representing a threat" is.

It used to be if you were a grown man, with a penis, the very act of following an unaccompanied child of the opposite sex into a bathroom was sufficient grounds for an ass whipping.

I think if girls' sports teams just take the proper equipment into the locker room with them - baseball bats, hockey sticks - and know how to apply them correctly to the invading boys, the problem will sort itself out.

I boycott Hannity now, but yesterday was too tired to change the station when I got in the car. He was saying that when he was in high school he refused to shower with 30 other guys in a group shower even though it was required. he was a good athlete, so the coaches wouldn't kick him off the team even though he refused to shower.

At my all-girls school we had shower stalls with curtains in our locker room, but most kids still didn't use them--we just showered at home later. Sometimes visiting teams would use them because they didn't want to go back to Houston or wherever all stinky on the bus.

219 Peru protests ruling against transvestite

The Peruvian Consul-General in La Plata, Buenos Aires province, called for a local judge to overturn a ruling which handed down a sentence for drug-trafficking to a Peruvian transvestite. The judge said in the ruling that the sentence had to be increased due to the nationality and gender of the accused.

The Peruvian woman known as Claudia Cordova was handed a sentence of five years and three months by Judge Juan Josť Ruiz, who mentioned her nationality and transvestitism in his ruling - move labeled xenophobic by Peruvian Consul General Carlos Alberto Chocano Burga, local human rights groups and the municipal Obudsmans office.

(per another report, not linked, the amount of cocaine involved was 1.6 grams, below the level for prosecution for distrubution and sales. Another news item, not linked, indicates the convicted was a sex worker.)

I only link because transvestites and Peruvia.

222 Airline safety:

1. The crash position: In the event of a sudden deceleration (i.e. survivable crash), your body *will* pivot forward, restrained at the waist by the seatbelt. Your head *will* end up against the seat or bulkhead forward of you. You can choose whether to place it there yourself beforehand or to smash against the obstruction forward of you violently. Your choice.

2. I flew across the U.S. and back last week. I listened to the safety briefing both times and looked at the safety pamphlet. (That's just me.) In neither case did I see or hear anything about being instructed to put on a life vest for any emergency landing which did not involve the deep blue sea. Maybe you heard a different briefing than I did.

3. Most airline crashes (rare though they be) do not involve a terminal dive into the bosom of the earth. If you're not interested in taking measures that will help you survive a survivable crash, fine. Fewer people between me and the exit.
