Monday Night Overnight Open Thread (5/16/16) [Misanthropic Humanitarian]


Quote of the day

From C.S. Lewis, (1898-1963), Irish author, scholar of medieval literature, and Christian apologist, God in the Dock (194:

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.

EPA

More EPA

OSHA

The Department of Education

Alphabet Agencies, unelected tyrants, each and every one of them. Those who torment us for our own good.

Occasionally, an unelected group of people make the right decision.

On May 17, 1954 The Supreme Court of the United States issued the landmark decision of Brown vs. Board of Education.

Voluntary segregation still remains.

Some are louder about it than others. Do you think that the 9 Justices 62 years ago had a different idea on how things would look today?

The interesting world of guns at the moment

Use a search engine and type in the month of the year and record gun sales. You will find this type of article. The left had a bit of cheerful news. Obama stats find that US manufacturing of guns is down for the first time since 2014. Perhaps they did not take cheaper foreign made guns into consideration.

TX makes the news again. It's looking like a better place to move to day after day.

A history lesson on the early gun industry. The armory gunsmiths were morons.

Armory gunsmiths were as happily irregular as their guns. They worked at their own pace. They came and went as they pleased, took frequent holidays and kept their tools as an informal fee for their work. They drank hard liquor and left their stations to gamble, gossip and roughhouse. Armory gunsmiths produced guns just as they would in their own shops: by hand, one at a time, at a bench, on an anvil.

6 "Trans"-ing Education

Not to be satisfied with suing North Carolina to force them to let men use the girl's restrooms, the Obama administration has issued mandatory "guidance" that declares a right to separate facilities based on sex (via Title IX) to now prohibit separate facilities based on sex and mandating that one's "gender identity" means what biological sex means, even though they have been legally different for quite some time now, though perhaps not for long.

publius--sometimes the elderly will suffer from a temporary dementia when they have a serious infection of some type. (Exhibit A, my dad a couple of weeks ago, when his UTI was in full swing.)

83 publius, you have been on my mind all day. I hope things are looking better for your mum.

An idea came to me in the shower this morning. There is an Essential Oil blend, called "Peace and Calming", made by Young Living, a company in Utah. P&C has remarkable properties for calming very agitated, hostile, violent, even suicidal people.

I used it on my special needs son every day of 5th and 6th grade, and even now, sometimes put it under his nose if he is ramping up. You don't need to apply it directly to the person, though. You can put it on a tissue, and slip it inside your mum's pillow case so that she breathes it in as she sleeps. You can put it on the collar of her blouse or in a top pocket during the day. It smells lovely.

A person I know actually saved two people who were suicidal with this oil blend. One was planning to kill herself that evening, and several hours after having it put on her with the pretense of it being perfume, came to her senses and decided her cheating husband could go to hell and she would go on without him. The other was a few days later, that young woman was actually in restraints in a psychiatric hospital. Her parents held the open bottle under her nose all night, and she came out of her suicidal state. She is alive today, married with children.

It may give your mum some help. I would send you some if you want, or you could call the company and ask for someone in your area who might have it at hand.

Blessings, publius. Let me know if you want to try this.

91 i'm glad to see this subject up. it gives me an opportunity to bring an article at legal insurrection to your attention: that obama has been stocking the justice dept with far leftist lawyers. these are effectively non-dismissable lifetime civil service jobs. a republican president can change a policy, but these radicals can be causing trouble for years to come.

part of the "fundamental transformation" of the country is the politicization of the federal bureaucracy.

Not to make your story about me, but I am watching my mother who has always been very strong starting to fail physically (her mind is still sharp), while watching my mother-in-law start to fail mentally while staying physically strong. In both cases, things are not yet too bad, but can see how the pace of things is going.

Instapundit writes aging is a disease. It sure looks that way.

All that trite stuff about making sure you tell your parents you love them whenever you can - do it.

She would pass all the basic "dementia tests". She knew the basics, and the lady that evaluated her this morning went through some more involved one. "Aced them", she said.

So it's pure mood, at least at first blush. But I've read dementia of a sort can manifest like that at first. Hell, even in her worst state, she'd do stuff like remind us to take out the garbage. Dad had completely forgotten it was garbage night, and in her state, she reminded us. And there were other things that just floored me.

104 Oh, here is a thing that I found out on first day of work. I was interviewing with employer A, when employer B came into the picture. It looked like it was going to be a photo finish, but employer B put out the offer, and employer A decided that they were going to not hire anyone.

So, first day at employer B, find out employer A was hosting a major software as a service application for employer B, and then accidentally deleted the whole instance, and had no backup. Attorneys will be involved.

Zoinks!

I think that is a sign that I ended up at the right place.

The New York Times made its reputation with the Titanic disaster. At the time it was one of about a dozen daily newspapers in New York, and most major cities had several papers.

A young enthusiast of the newfangled technology of wireless radio, David Sarnoff, was listening to the traffic in the North Atlantic that night. He heard the increasingly desperate distress calls from Titanic, and notified a friend who was a reporter from the Times.

The next day, newspapers up and down the East Coast reported that Titanic had suffered an accident, and was either slowly making its way to Newfoundland, or that rescue ships were approaching. The Boston American ran the headline ALL SAVED FROM TITANIC AFTER COLLISION.

Only the New York Times ran the headline TITANIC SINKS WITH GREAT LOSS OF LIFE.

They've been coasting on that reputation ever since.

They aren't concentrated there. It's everywhere. And despite all the so called prohibitions against politicking in govt service, the Democrats know who the good Democrats are, and they get called to serve the Democrat appointees.

112 My mother's older sister, who lived out in Alameda, CA, and for decades went pretty fast. Ironically, she was coming out of the doctor's office for a checkup and just keeled over walking back to her car. It was a massive brain hemorrhage. She lasted about 24 hours.

There was no long lingering period there and her mind was still sharp. That's the way to go, I think. Not that specifically, but fast and no prolonged suffering.

Kevin Baker, highly productive, articulate and persuasive writer of the blog: "The Smallest Minority", has chosen to step away from the profession of persuasion.

4,500+ word essay where he reviews the life and times of his blog, and his reasoning for stepping away. http://tinyurl.com/hjwxjln

Folks, losing Kevin from the "A" team lineup is a hell of a loss.

Good thing for us, he's leaving the blog up and will post cat pics now n' then, he says.

The archives are a treasure trove. Go, dig deep and read long. There's easily a year's worth of reading there. You'll know more than you do right now.

You know what would be really fun with the bait phone? Get some really smelly dogshit, and mix it with a good dollop of baking powder, and then freeze it into a cake with liquid nitrogen before the baking powder can begin to react. Dip the frozen cake a paraffin wax, and substitute for the battery in a phone. Thief steals it, eventually places in pocket, or on car seat, shit thaws out, and baking powder makes it swell up, and burst forth from the phone, soiling whatever it touches.

Those concrete floors in exhibition halls are murder on the feet. Used to have my feet in agony after a day of doing the inside buildings at the Portland Expo Center for the big swap meet in April. Not this year! There is a regular vendor there who sells "Ergo Kneel" pads, basically inch-thick pads of dense foam rubber with a carry handle, that you can throw on the ground to kneel upon. Useful they are, too. So, right away I bought one, and went outside and sat on a bench. Cut the pad up with my pocket knife into two strips, and taped them to the soles of my shoes with black electrical tape. Looked goofy as Hell, but they were easy to walk on, and I had ZERO discomfort in my feet that day. Can't recommend it too highly.

A few days ago I saw a TV ad for the cheese-stuffed crust pizzas (I've never eaten one) and thought it looked unappetizing oozing out especially when I've already got plenty of cheese on the top. (Yes, I know the idea is to have cheese to eat as well instead of just the supposedly bland outer crust.) And I thought a better idea would be to put sausage in the crust instead as I'd rather have more meat with the crust than cheese.

I guess that's one patent I won't attempt now.

266 We have a couple of channels that are older movie channels. Ads are typically for some medical device for older folks or a way to speed up your computer or life lock - you know, scams and ways to protect yourself from scams.

So anyway there was one with a picture of a Medicare card on it. Prominently on there is SEX. Not like doing it, but Male or Female.

I can't believe it. We force old people to live by the sex they were born with. There are no instructions on the Medicare website on how to change it. You can change your name but not your sex on the card.

How do we end this injustice.

Can't. Those who seek power, and those who want to "do good" will be drawn to government jobs. If you eliminate the Department of Education, they will just try to get their agenda in local schools via the Department of Agriculture.

The left will use whatever means necessary to implement their agenda.
Posted by: Ashley Judd's Puffy Triggly

1. Distribute Fed jobs by Congressional district, instead of having them concentrated in DC area. The expensive housing makes it difficult for Conservatives with families to stay in those jobs and population density generally determines attitudes on freedom.

2. Getting rid of Gov Unions will help deal with the deadwood at lower level, but will do little to tame the master s of the universe types up with the good carpet with noble cause corruption leaking from their colons. My solution: no executive agency regulatory finding is valid beyond the Congress in which it was implemented without specific Congressional authorization in law.

One of my co-workers mentioned that he doesn't get the IRS scammers calling him anymore.

He got a message about how he has to pay up to the IRS immediately with a call back number.

He called the number back and pretended to participate and stopped and asked if this was really the IRS.
Then he informed the "agent" he was full of shit and started verbally and profanely abusing him until the "agent" cussed back and hung up on him.

Then he started calling the number a couple of times a week and started cussing out the "agent" every time and eventually had his number blocked.

I wonder he didn't decide to start calling from his wife's cell, too.

Suggestion: create a new Federal offense called "Harassment Under Color of Authority", HUCA, for short. Applicable to employees of any Federal agency that has authority to levy fines or penalties against civilians or corporations.


Intended to be used against assholes in Federal agencies who persecute individuals and/or corporations with "penalties" far exceeding the alleged damage they may have caused, even if they were technically "guilty" of breaking a regulation. Example being that farmer in Wyoming.


Minimum HUCA penalty would be dismissal + lifetime ban on further Federal employment + loss of all employer-provided pension benefits. Egregious cases would get jail time.


Would be a tough law to write, but I think it could be written in such a way as to permit legitimate enforcement where necessary, while penalizing over-zealous or downright malicious enforcement.

Posted by: Adriane the Oxford Comma, Use it, Critic ... at May 16, 2016 11:53 PM (AoK0a)


Not really. It always comes down to 3 outcomes in implementing their agenda.

1. They lose, no agenda is implemented, not even one bit.
2. They win, their agenda is implemented, all of it.
3. Some of their agenda is implemented. Not the stuff that only the left wants, just some of the things that everyone agrees on. Case in point, the Virginia Car Tax. Every year, each Virginian that owns a car gets a bill from their county/city for a tax based on the value of their car with newer cars having a tax of close to $600 year. In 1997, Jim Gilmore was elected Governor based on a plan to do away with the tax. After fighting the Dem controlled House/Senate, he got it passed. But the implementation said that it would be implemented in stages and could be suspended if things were not economically feasible. 9-11 happens and the elimination of the tax was suspended. 15 years later, the tax elimination remains at where it was 15 years ago, but instead of paying $1500 per year for the privilege of owning a new car, the tax is now only $750 per year.

Oh, and the GOP finally took control of the House and had a split in the Senate with a GOP Lt. Gov, and the GOP controlled the Governor and Attorney General. Not one pushed for the tax to finally be eliminated, none. Not even Ken "True Conservative" Cuccinelli.

This is what government is. Even if we defeat the Left's agenda today, they will get bits and pieces of it implemented over time. They are very patient. If Roe V Wade had gone the other way and outlawed abortion, abortion would be legal anyway today because they would have been patient and get it implemented in drips and drabs.

That said, conservatives have just now figured it out. Instead of going for overturning Roe, we have decided to start nibbling at the edges. Make abortion mills have to have the same medical standards as a dentist's office? Sure. Make sure that Planned Parenthood has to be ADA accessible? Even better. Passing legislation banning all abortions? Not gonna pass muster with the courts.

To the Left, the law only ever exists as a tool to punish their opponents, and harass things they disapprove of out of existence. They do not value a clear law, or the rule of law. The power to punish is all that they crave. Beating them by the same measures is possible, but we still have to get to a point where they can be defeated in detail.

The Rule of Law - law as anything other than the tyranny of a few men in black robes - must not be a permanent casualty of this fight, or we have already lost.

375 Ashley, it seems as though there was once a trade-off (in fact, I recall adults even explaining this way when I was young).


Public sector jobs offered security, decent but not great $$$, and, in many cases, the "psychic income" of public regard (police, fire, military, teachers). So, a trade-off of $$$ for other desirable things. Very logical. Even .... "sustainable", in the true sense of that word.


And - public services were fine, in many cases (education) vastly better, than they are now. When public sector jobs, in a lot of states and at the federal level, now represent no trade-off, but a simple all-out grab of every possible goodie: pay, security, flexibility, benefits, retirement, vacation - everything.


Yeah yeah yeah - several wheels turning here, esp. on the education side, but unlike the unrepeatability of high-paid manufacturing jobs for high school grads (post-WWII US economic dominance), there is an unrefutable bit of data that public education can be vastly better, and vastly cheaper, than it is now: my life and that of millions of others my age and older.

We now have high school teachers and middle school teachers with fucking PHd's. Why? Because the pay scales give those with a PHd or a Masters more money, and in most cases pays for them to receive said advanced degrees. Today it requires a PHd to teach Algebra to HS freshmen.

That's what I heard until I had a Socialist teacher that riled the mindless. He would speak of Magyars and Serfs and Teachers and Nurses and "Public Service" as if they were Unappreciated and Underpaid Gods.

I even mindlessly repeated such populist tropes.

...until I owned my own business.

My Father spoke of unions and the protection they offered "the little guy" while negotiating wages and insurance For The Masses vs. "The Big Guys".

I agree in many instances with Private Sector unions, but once "Public Sector Unions", (Government), were created, we all lost.

My views from my early twenties morphed quickly after opening a small business. Rules, fees, fines, regulations and taxes will do that to a man.

The local media made tanning salons sound like microwave ovens. "Why do you want to fry yourself like that?", was a giggly "Local News" trope. Right before the idiots wanted to know if the Restaurant Guy was "going to bring some of that back for us!"

Every Station.

Everywhere.

Idiots.

Local News Banter is the worst thing is consumed in America.

I HATE Local News. This Shit-Fest of uninformed, banal uniformity is ubiquitous and consumed on a regular basis.

I can get the weather online, thanks.

And the local sportscasters with their glorious and defamatory superlatives and *Rah-Rah* can suck my ass as I defecate. Satan will make them watch soccer for the rest of their miserable existence in Hell.

Okay, I've gotten off-message for a bit, but I hate local news. (I hate them with a passion.)

What I'm really trying to say is that Local Government jobs should be for drones. Drones that surpass "drone level" should be "State-Level Drones". Maybe Governors.

Since you no longer represent your State as a Senator, you should go into the Private Sector after that and represent your State as an ambassador to All Those Willing to move to Your State because you make... Peanut Butter better than any other motherfucking State in These Great United States of America.

391 Actually, that 9th Circus ruling won't be much trouble, if they decide to re-decide it. As with the Peruta v. Gore (SD Sheriff) concealed-carry ruling.


Haven't bothered to look to see if the gun store/zoning ruling was a 3-judge panel, or larger. Did hear sideways on the radio that the same judge wrote the decision as wrote the Peruta ruling. He's sane.


His ruling in the other case in some ways boiled down to "um, look at the SCOTUS rulings, I'm cutting/pasting pertinent sections, I effing dare you to contradict this". Of course they voted to review the decision with a larger panel.


The broader public pays no attention and understands nothing, of course, but even legal types mostly never even seem to ponder why it is that core constitutional rights can be infringed (flagrantly) for years, and years, while courts sit around, and then issue absurd rulings, which take another eternity to bump up the chain to be over-ruled. Yet imaginary "rights" are discovered and railroaded through to national status in the blink of an eye.

Well, Eddie Izzard is an "exective cross dresser." According to himself. And I think that shtick is probably in the past.

Who the hell knows? All I know is that those who are men who think they are women determine at some point that it sucks to pretend, and then they off themselves. So, cross dressing is probably the safer option. No extra boobs or anything, and definitely do not lop off the dangly bits. That's just asking for, well, trouble.

Just Kidding!

Your contributions, (while benign and often sweeter than I'd like to acknowledge), are quite appreciated by those who lurk and those who don't.

My flashy idiocy is simply due to learned friends and family that took "flesh from my hide" when I was a stupid kid.

I took it onstage and became cocky, yet humbled. ...often.

--I am a simpleton that has come to Jesus because my jail time was getting longer and longer. I could only act superior and punch people for so long until my luck and teeth ran out.

I am naturally cocky, without cause. People like you are bringers of faith, hope, light, hope and pardon. ...where my weakness lies.

I often hope that my quick and sincere apologies for daft and reactionary soliloquies can make amends their reactionary nature. --My nature.

I try to say what I mean and mean what I say, but like some "comedians", (which I am not, professionally), I stretch things into a silly-taffy of untruth. --Lies.

I stay away from threads where my words cannot express the hope for someone's experience, much like Publius in the earlier thread.

I had no words, but I prayed. I had no common experience but perhaps I should have said something. ...Anything that might assuage someone from despair through Our Lord Jesus Christ.

As God is my Witness, I avoid threads when I am not feeling The Spirit.

I simply cannot type what I am not feeling at the moment, as it comes to God. I am preoccupied with life's minutia and I cannot bring myself to inspire anyone else.

It is at these times that I need inspiration the most. I am most guilty of being selfish when I cannot bring myself to type a few words of inspiration for the buoying of another soul.

I have asked Our Lord to find the salvation and grace, through friends and Family, for Publius.

I was on my knees thanking Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ for such grace and love.

--But I was pissed-off at a lawnmower.

I read his posts and I just couldn't respond. For those of you who think I'm some sort of clergy... *HAH!*

I'm just another guy with a keyboard.

I don't strive to find God's will often enough. I used to pray nightly, but I've fallen out of favor with Our Lord.

Pray for me, because I am losing Faith slowly.

It is at these times that I need inspiration the most. I am most guilty of being selfish when I cannot bring myself to type a few words of inspiration for the buoying of another soul.

I have asked Our Lord to find the salvation and grace, through friends and Family, for Publius.

I was on my knees thanking Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ for such grace and love.

--But I was pissed-off at a lawnmower.

I'd read his posts and I just couldn't respond. For those of you who think I'm some sort of clergy... *HAH!*

I'm just another guy with a keyboard.

I don't strive to find God's will often enough. I used to pray nightly, but I've fallen out of favor with Our Lord.

Pray for me, because I am losing Faith slowly.

403 "Is being a cross dresser too "on the fence"? Just wondering if this has occurred to any of the horde."

Possibly.

I was wondering the same myself.

Perhaps, in the olden days, there were manly men who were husbands and fathers and went out in the world, doing manly things, very manfully, and might just want to relax in the PRIVACY of their own home, with their WIFE, with some frilly panties (or something else very naughty).

I can see that.

Not in a million YEARS would your sainted grandmother give you ANY indication that she had kinky FUN sehx w/ your terrifying grandfather.

430 Brown v Board of Education was a massive failure. Not only because it accomplished nothing because it was widely ignored in both the North and South, but ultimately because it introduced the concept of federal controls over actions of State governments that do not exist in the Constitution. IOW it was legislation of a new amendment to the Constitution by the Supreme Court.


This has led to more and more encroachment by a Washington oligarchy on State and local authority based on what Washington bureaucrats think is the "right" thing to do. Whether or not forced desegregation of public schools is a "good thing" is debatable, and the ruling being based on "separate but equal" being inherently inferior is pure bullshit opinion stated without any supporting evidence. If it was "inherently inferior" we would not have it today in the defacto segregation of schools all over the country. In fact, schools are more segregated today than they have been since before the civil war. And that is by choice of both races.


But what is not "debatable" is that federalism in the United States has been abolished by this kind of shit. Even today as to the point where Washington is dictating bathroom rules for male and female patrons.

439 Good Morning Morons. Today is Tuesday, May 17, 2016. On this day in 1987 an Iraqi Dassault Mirage F1 fighter jet fired two missiles into the U.S. Navy warship USS Stark, killing 37 and injuring 21 of her crew. Amazingly the Stark's captain had allowed these jets with 22 miles of the ship under a hostile flight path AND had ignored warnings. The Stark never did do anything to defend itself. This was under Ronald Reagan so I am sure there were no BS rules of engagement like we have now under the choom. A board of inquiry recommended that he be relieved of command and court-martialed. Instead he was relieved of command and retired. Nothing was ever done to Iraq for this incident either.

467 And regarding the "Master and Commander" series of books that we discussed a few days ago I had book-marked the movie which was listed at only $5.99 for the Bluray. I thought this morning to check on the books before I bought the movie because in most cases the books are better than the movie. But behold the gouging wars. The first book in the series, which is usually the cheapest one, is listed at $9 for the kindle edition. That is damned pricey for a book copyrighted in 1969. Also in an extremely negative review one Kindle reader excoriated the Kindle edition because huge sections in the original printed edition are missing. And no, the author is not responsible for the excessive cost because he is no longer among the living. I think I will go with the movie and forgo the dead tree versions.

473 "Occasionally, an unelected group of people make the right decision."

As mentioned above by others this just means the unelected busybodies changed sides on an issue they created. The busybodies don't have minds to change. They don't make decisions. They rake muck for fun and profit. Intimately related to Bill Clinton's triangulation techniques that are so admired by fools.

Not sure what your point here is. My point is that the actions of the current regime seem to support this kind of horrendous crap by allowing the people who do this to come into the US unchecked and do the same thing.


In fact, a group of those migrants were doing the same thing here in SC at a camp for peach pickers. The young girl escaped and went to local authorities who raided the camp. Those scum were actually charged with running a slavery camp (among other things) and will most likely go up river for a long time.

476 "Meanwhile, big name established book publishers continue to lose market share to the small publishers and independent self published authors."

Meanwhile the US continues to lose market share to all its trading partners. Is it trading if it is one way?

My point is that the rules for big business are that they must set things up to pay bribes. Which causes a lot of idiotic distortion as you pointed out. How can a book publisher pay bribes to Bill and Hillary if there isn't an established cover story? Barnes and Nobel is disgusting in this way. Crooked stuff is finally catching up with them.

See what Senator Orin Hatch told Bill Gates. Paraphrase. Don't come back here till you hire a big lobby firm. You probably know that lobby firms are back door bribery for Congressmen and Senators.

This is a new Nullification Crisis, come around again. And if it is such that a locality may see fit to suspend its participation in a Federal law pertaining to drugs and immigration, why not stop there?

Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, so why not establish the first Bathroom Sanctuary Cities, where federal regulations about who may use what bathroom are illegal to enforce? Or perhaps if we're really daring, a Tax Sanctuary City, where the nation's onerous taxes and business regulations are equally unenforced.

Right now, they do not care. We can make them care.

Iraq paid no real price for the attack on the Stark. But they did pay cash for the damages.

The attack changed the inside-the-Beltway thinking on Iraq. It went from asshole Enemy of an Enemy (Iran-Iraq War) to asshole enemy. The attack had very long shadows in decision making. It's one small reason we attacked Iraq twice vice Iran at all.

Other destroyers in that same class had equally poor performance against the Exocet. The Phalanx system radar was inoperative on the Stark at the time of the attack.

Because THEY won't live there. Socialism is like a video game to them. Just Power Up or Start Over (RESET).

I imagine that they think that Detroit is going to be re-colonized by 30,000 hipsters growing organic gardens in vacant lots next to their "reclaimed architecture" to feed the "vibrant and funky" scene which is sure to be a HUGE disappointment, tax-wise, to every public union in Detroit.

509 TSA work slowdown

Classic bureaucracy 'slow walking' the paperwork through the 'process'

Classic union work slowdown because the union doesn't care about getting the work done. In fact, getting the work done gives the union less power. Interfering with getting the work done (i.e. getting passengers screened and boarded in a timely fashion) gives the union leverage, power. By the book work rules, extensive attention to trivial details, all intended to give power to the union bosses and the political bosses.

The Ferguson Effect. Simple self preservation. If you don't go where the criminals are, you are less likely to get shot for doing your job, or less likely to be crucified in the news media for doing your job.

I was trying to decipher amazon's urls to shop their pool and leisure sale through Ace of Spades HQ, but failed. But I did stumble into an SDD internal HD that, when put into an external enclosure, would function perfectly as backup storage for personal data files on this obsolete desktop.

I already have an external firewire drive on which is store my personal photographs, most of them anyway, and Amazon keeps a list of all the books I have ever bought there so I could authorize a new computer and instantly get all my eBooks back, and I think Apple does the same with iTunes.

But it would be nice to have a back up for my firewire drive. Well, I do, after a fashion, 'cuz I have a 64gb usb thumb drive that came with a backup program that searches out all my personal data files and saves them on the thumb drive.

So I'm not exactly sure why I am worried about my data. Maybe it's just the turmoil of recovering from a computer failure.

Or maybe I have watched too much NASA TV where someone on the ISS is talking with some database clerk in Houston because a widget that the NASA database says is in a location isn't there and everyone is trying to figure out why the widget is missing and why the database is wrong and where the widget is because they need it to perform a scheduled experiment.

Obama is a lightweight who is waking a sleeping giant. (or Cerberus the three-headed dog)

548 Yeah, let's bring up Bill's porking interns IN THE WHITE HOUSE!!! and remind ourselves WHY no Democrat President can EVAR be impeached, no matter how fucking traitorous TFG is, EVAR again.

Because it was stupid then, and it's even more silly looking now.

Boy who cried wolf.

549 "for HAVING SEX with...AN INTERN! "

For committing perjury and obstruction of justice.

Bill cleverly fooled people into believing what you said.

Back in the day, one of the things you bestowed on a new driver in Southern CA was the Thomas Guide for their home county. Though if you lived in a bordering town like I did, the Los Angeles / Ventura edition was the way to go.

For those unfamiliar, the Thomas Guide was a highly detailed map set in a spiral bound form that was much easier to work with than the folding variety.

I've been using GPS since the first laptop based products appeared in the 90s. One early product didn't know about one-way streets, which was a bit of a problem when we chose a trip to San Francisco to test it. The constant voice directions have always been an irritant to me, especially since I'm a big audio book user. So I tend to not set up the navigation until I reach the point of uncertainty. I find this also helps keep the mind a bit better engaged as well.

Funny thing, when I was a kid I was amazed at all of the places well away from home that my mother knew how to reach just by memory. It wasn't until much later that I discovered she really knew just those specific places and not the territory in general. I've lost count of the number of times I've gotten a call from mother or sister when they were lost and had to guide to them to familiar ground. You would think the San Fernando Valley, where they've been driving for decades, would be a place they could go far in any direction without getting an idea of where they were in relation to more familiar ground but their brains just don't work that way.

For me, if I'm going down an unfamiliar street and see a familiar name on a cross street and that is immediately followed by another familiar name, the sequence tells me which way I'm headed and what should lie ahead. I cannot imagine driving around an area for years and not getting some sense of the grid.

551 "WHY no Democrat President can EVAR be impeached"

All that has to happen is that a Democrat has to threaten the flow of sweet federal funds. (To get impeached and removed from office.)

See Rod Blagojevich.

Might happen if Obama bails out the bankers like W did. People are not happy,

Doesn't matter if they commit a crim or not. The Vig must flow. That is all that matters to Dems at the core. Otherwise they might have to get a job and work for the-man. (cut of ebt and see how many Dems get elected)

552 Sorry for the typos. Too much coffee. Typing too fast.

553 Yeah, yeah.

Don't fool yourself.

Those idiots in the congress might have told their "constituents" that it was a matter of "committing perjury and obstruction of justice".

Such a bunch of Atticus Finches, they were!

Clinton got a BJ in the Oval Office! Can you BELEIVE IT?

Gravely shaking their head at such a BREACH of DECORUM.

Looks like those 12 Angry Men, the Silent Majority were just waiting a couple of decades for the definative CGI bukake reconstruction.

No?

554 "The constant voice directions have always been an irritant to me."

I'm new to this, I used to map things out, on my own, first.

What I HATE is when the "voice" doesn't tell you what you are likely to do after following "Rzbscy Buloved for 1/2 mile"

"Keep following Rzbscy Beloved for 1/4 mile"

"Turn right and switch to your horse-drawn chariot and enter the Hippodrome for 3.5 miles."

"Fend off "Mer-men" with Tridents..."

Oh! Lord, Help Me!

I'm on Army Trail Road!

I will LEAVE this fucking car and WALK back to where I grew up!
