Quote of the Day - Get Over It Edition

Yes, the thought of male genitalia in girls' locker rooms - and vice versa - might be distressing to some. But the battle for equality has always been in part about overcoming discomfort - with blacks sharing facilities, with gays sharing marriage - then realizing that it was not nearly so awful as some people imagined.

-- from an editorial by the Charlotte Observer

Palate Cleaner: Sen. Cotton (R-AR) Denounces the Horrible "Cancerous Leadership" of Sen. Reid (D-NV) on the Senate Floor

"As a junior Senator I preside over the Senate, I usually do it in the morning, which means I am forced to listen to the bitter vulgar incoherent ramblings of the Minority Leader. Normally, like every other American, I ignore them. I can't ignore them today, however." He also says, ""The happy byproduct of fewer days in session in the Senate is that this institution will be cursed less with his cancerous leadership."

Finally someone calls out this vile institution-damaging POS who can't be gone soon enough.

Why Nazism Was Socialism and Why Socialism Is Totalitarian

The identification of Nazi Germany as a socialist state was one of the many great contributions of Ludwig von Mises.

When one remembers that the word "Nazi" was an abbreviation for "der Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiters Partei - in English translation: the National Socialist German Workers' Party - Mises's identification might not appear all that noteworthy. For what should one expect the economic system of a country ruled by a party with "socialist" in its name to be but socialism?

Nevertheless, apart from Mises and his readers, practically no one thinks of Nazi Germany as a socialist state. It is far more common to believe that it represented a form of capitalism, which is what the Communists and all other Marxists have claimed.

The basis of the claim that Nazi Germany was capitalist was the fact that most industries in Nazi Germany appeared to be left in private hands.

What Mises identified was that private ownership of the means of production existed in name only under the Nazis and that the actual substance of ownership of the means of production resided in the German government. For it was the German government and not the nominal private owners that exercised all of the substantive powers of ownership: it, not the nominal private owners, decided what was to be produced, in what quantity, by what methods, and to whom it was to be distributed, as well as what prices would be charged and what wages would be paid, and what dividends or other income the nominal private owners would be permitted to receive.
But what specifically established de facto socialism in Nazi Germany was the introduction of price and wage controls in 1936. These were imposed in response to the inflation of the money supply carried out by the regime from the time of its coming to power in early 1933. The Nazi regime inflated the money supply as the means of financing the vast increase in government spending required by its programs of public works, subsidies, and rearmament. The price and wage controls were imposed in response to the rise in prices that began to result from the inflation.

The effect of the combination of inflation and price and wage controls is shortages, that is, a situation in which the quantities of goods people attempt to buy exceed the quantities available for sale.

Read the full article to see how actually enforcing these wage and price controls inexorably leads to a totalitarian government. Because ultimately the only effective way to make people act contrary to their own personal economic interests over the long haul is through fear, intimidation, and brutal punishment. The exact same logic applies to any attempts to enact real socialism. The article also covers why this didn't apply to the 'socialist' Scandinavian states.  (Thanks to JTT)

You Seem Like a Cool Dude So Like Are You a Friend of Abe?

Clint Howard, a longtime character actor, found himself seated next to stand-up comedian Tom Dreesen on a flight back to Los Angeles from a charity golf tournament several years ago. The two men began to talk politics, and Dreesen asked if Howard had heard of Friends of Abe. Howard, the younger brother of director Ron Howard, said he had always wanted to become a member but didn't have an in. Dreesen gave him the phone number of actor Gary Sinise and told him to call. Not long after, Howard rang up Sinise. "I was waiting for you, brother," Sinise said.

Cellphones Do Not Cause Brain Cancer Says 29-Year Study

"The study examines the incidence of brain cancer in the Australian population between 1982 to 2013. The study pitted the prevalence of mobile phones among the population -- starting at 0 percent -- against brain cancer rates, using data from national cancer registration data. The results showed a very slight increase in brain cancer rates among males, but a stable level among females. There were significant increases in over -70s, but began in 1982, before cellphones were even a thing."

The fact that Australia requires that all incidences of cancer be registered adds weight to this study's results.

Remembering Phil Hartman's Greatness With Answering Machine Messages He Left For A Fan In 1993

It's now been 18 years since Hartman was murdered in his sleep by his wife. This 1993 recording of answering machine messages he made for a fan is a reminder of how funny he could be even in throw-away bits. And also sad at the end. He seemed to have been a genuinely nice guy who was loved by everyone he worked with (with the apparent exception of Rob Schneider who he once threatened to shoot in the head).

69 What's not made clear in the Nazi-Business relationship, is the abject willingness of the larger industrial concerns to co-opt themselves into the government scheme, and hence, protection.

Krupp Industries is perhaps the most well documented participant in such. Krupp didn't just make high-grade steel for armaments and forged rail-car wheels and rails. They also designed and made the ovens used at Auschwitz and other camps.

Go look up the blueprints of those ovens, and you'll see that they're major, multi-stage and multi-station industrial process lines. The most often seen B&W pics make 'em look like just slightly oversized and mis-used pizza ovens.

But these systems covered the area the size of a football field, with highly complex forced air combustion and equally complex exhaust and purging systems.

They're the furthest thing from a slight alteration of a commercial design. They're purpose-made for the mass immolation of masses of the freshly murdered from the camps.

And Krupps sought out this relationship with the Nazi regime.

Fortunately, our U.S. firms aren't involved with that degree of outright evil, but the foundations of an inseparability between Government and Industry is clearly evident here, already.

The parallels with U.S. firms such as G.E. and General Motors are disturbing, to say the least.

Exactly. The blending of business and government into an inseparable, singular ruling elite is a point when Capitalism has stopped and Fascism has begun. Corrupt industries will always go for this arrangement, because it gives them protection from competition, and officially sanctions a monopoly or oligopoly. From the perspective of the business, it's essentially the abolition of risk.

108 There's very few stats available on crimes committed by "transgenders" in the U.S. However, if I remember correctly, foreign crime stats seem to say that they have a 30% higher chance of committing a sex crime.

From what I can tell, part of it is because many men who might pose a "transgender" are actually "cross dressers" who are sexually aroused by wearing women's clothes.

Wonder how all the biologically female women- and young girls- in Charlotte are going to feel when they're alone in the ladies room with an aroused cross dresser.

He crapped the bed he tried so hard.

If you concentrate power in the central state, someone is going to grab and use that power, be they party apparatchiks or a business entity.

"Social Democracy" or other "power to the people" nonsense does nothing but give some an excuse to take from others.

If you want to prevent evil people from taking control of the centralized power... just do away with that concentration of centralized power. No power = nothing to corruptly grab.

162 Niman hao, Horde!

Had a fun day off - first one in a while - and the weather was, for a change, not alternating between unbearably muggy and storming like the second week of the Deluge.

That beast of a camera - I need to name it, really, I do, but haven't settled a suitable moniker for the thing - required me to get a new tripod and head system.

I knew what I was looking for, and prepared to drop an amount just this side of $1k; yeah, i'd made my peace with the idea....

Anywho, the local St. Vincent de Paul folks have a little thrift-and-junk shop that helps support their efforts, and I tend to swing in there every now and then - they have some good stuff.

And, as it was on the way to the camera shop, I thought I'd stop in there first, if only to give myself a chance to delay the inevitable.....

And what is in the window as I walk up? A Gitzo G1340 tripod with an Arca Swiss Monoball head - a rig far, far better than what I'd decided to pick up.....

I walked in, smiling, and addressed the lady behind the counter.

"Good morning, ma'am. That tripod there. Yes, i'll take it."

I ended up spending less than 1/4 of what the tripod alone would have cost me....

So overjoyed at the bargain was I, that I dropped a twenty in the donation box next to the register.

Woot and woot, as the kids say

But today, she'd gone back in the hole some, and wasn't too talkative.

I just don't know. Don't have a clue what the outcome is going is going to be. And dear old Dad, I don't know how much more he can take. I fear he's going to be up there with her, or at least in a similar facility somewhere.

IG Farben was a German industrial conglomerate, formed in the 1920's, centered around the chemical industry, that was quickly co-opted by the Nazis in the 1930's - it was dissolved in the 1950's
I don't think anyone bought anyone, it was just a mutually beneficial business arrangement at the time

Making weapons for the national army is one thing. I'm not going to hold tank factories against Porsche, for instance. Or blame Mitsubishi because its (at the time) parent company built the Zero. They were a part of the country, and building weapons for your country's military is expected.

The problems arise in the things that some of the others have been mentioning. Being associated with the Holocaust, for instance. Or the beliefs of the owners of the company. Someone above mentioned that the Porsche family were committed Nazis. *That* would be something to hold against the company.

203 A couple of items -

Some of you might be familiar with the game 'This War of Mine'. It's a game that puts you in control of a small group of refugees hiding out in a besieged city. You're responsible for helping the group to scavenge food and supplies needed to survive the siege (and the lengthy cold period). It's inspired by the Siege of Sarajevo, and can get very depressing at times as the members of your group starve to death, or slowly die due to an illness or infection.

It's an interesting game.

The developers released a DLC for it today. It adds kids. Hoo boy...



On another note, one of my brothers forwarded a story about a blind man who's suing McDonalds due to the company's policy of only allowing cars to use the drive-thru.

I'm in the process of stripping it out, so the hulk can go for scrap, and I figured the safest, and easiest way to get the rear axle and front suspension out of it was to turn it upside down. Engine, transmission, and fuel tank already out, I attached a chain to the roof rail on the far side, and gave it a tug with the tractor, and over she went. And the back side windows (it's a station wagon) didn't break. I had meant to take them out, but forgot.

234 On Monday, yes, Memorial Day, I had to perform a DIY fumigation of the house.

Termites.

The preceding day, I went under the house into the crawlspace, and used appx 4x the manufacturer's rated coverage of the Spectracide Yard & Garden insect killer.

One and one half, one-quart bottles, via hose mounted sprayer, covering a 1,400 ft. area. I made the ground under the house into a muddy, soupy, Superfund Site.

The day before I did the Spectracide, I had gone under the house with a pump sprayer full of Borax solution, and treated all of the exposed wood. Very heavily sprayed, twice.

Leading up to this, I took a punch-awl, made holes between every stud in the house, and sprayed copious amounts of Bengal's Roach Killer via the WD-40 type aerosol straw through the awl-holes.

Back to the fumigation.

Raid makes a product called The Fumigator.

It is not an aerosol "bomb".

Rather, it is a water activated chemical, where one drops a canister of granulated solids into a heat-resistant plastic cup, where you've added about 1/4 inch level of water.

About thirty seconds later, it's growling and hissing, and in thirty more seconds, it's belching a very, very fine, deadly white smoke.

Those smoke particles are but a millionth the size and weight of the smallest droplet from an aerosol bomb.

The smoke lingers in the air for hours, and penetrates the smallest crevice, going where the bugs are in the process.

Yeah, I used 3x as many as recommended for the volume of the house and attic.

I don't have the thousands and thousands of dollars asked by the professional exterminators. Plus, they make their money by wanting to come back for endless visits.

So instead, I delivered OVERKILL, and should be pretty much a "once and done" process.

Still, I'll spray the Spectracide and Borax under the house, periodically.

But that Raid Fumigator?

Turned the house, literally, into a gas chamber.

Makes tonight's conversation, just a bit more in-focus, you might say.

Oh, and there are no more signs whatsoever, of any termite, or any other insect to be found.

Had to shelter us and the cats out in the detached garage during the process, and for a couple hours after, to let the subsequently opened windows clear the air.

Now, I've been repairing woodwork and sheetrock damaged by the *$& bugs.

That the Nazis did this to human beings though, was distilled evil of the foulest sort.

Had the Manhattan Project borne fruit before VE Day, I'm sure Berlin would be an entirely different scenic experience than is known today.

Is borax solution efficacious for killing bugs? Or does it make the wood toxic to the termites? I thought the deal with borax was to spread the powder, which, having a sweet taste, induces ants to take it back to their colony and feed it to the grubs, which then die.

So instead, I delivered OVERKILL, and should be pretty much a "once and done" process.

Still, I'll spray the Spectracide and Borax under the house, periodically.

Hiroshima is one of the nicest cities I've visited in Japan. Note: I've like them all, in their own way, none were bad.

------You're thinking of Unit 731, the Japanese bio warfare group that experimented on humans in Manchukuo. Instead of trying the doctors for war crimes, the US quietly gave them immunity from prosecution to grab their expertise. They called the subjects of the experiments "logs" and subjected them to some of the worst experiments that can be imagined. There are no firm numbers but the death toll is estimated to be between 3,000 and 250,000 people killed during these experiments.

I screwed-around and over-prepared and fixed my car's AC today. I had tried to depress the valve stems and didn't get a hiss, so I thought I'd have to pump the system to vacuum before charging. So I bought vacuum pump oil, and new adapters and hoses. When I pulled the valve stems to change 'em, however, I got a hiss -- so I blocked each one off with my thumb until I could put the new valve stems in.




The EPA and California go apeshit over every release of freon into the environment, but I'm old enough to remember freon propellant for hairspray. My grandfather told me about troubleshooting circuits by submerging them in freon -- shorts would bubble. By any reasonable measure, our releases of CFC have decreased by 9,999/10,000 -- and current threats to the ozone layer are well-nigh delusional -- but the enviroweenies are up in arms over every little hiss.....despite none of them being old enough to remember what the problem was in the first place.

293 Weft, none of the smoke escaped the house, and when I finally did open the windows to air things out, the concentration had already dropped so as to not look like a "fog" in the house.

When this house was built in late '07/early '08, it was insulated with spray-foam in the walls, under the roof deck and under the subfloors.

It's pretty much airtight, as much as a house can be.

A bit more taxing on the HVAC to not have a vented attic, but the upside is an attic cool enough to use for long-term food storage, etc.

Hell, I could build a 12'x12' room up there, with 8 ft. ceiling. Just that there's no room in the house footprint for a staircase, other than the pull down attic stairs.

Point is..... the gas chamber thing seems to have worked. I'll keep an eye out for further evidence of the *$@ bugs, but I've been doing all the standard inspection tricks, and there's now no sign of 'em, where once there was.

Guess I could burn the place down though? That'll get 'em for sure!

I think it was the info developed on bio warfare, derived from experiments in Nanking and other Chinese cities, that most interested the US. Again - in the context of the Soviet menace/rivalry (just as with some German weapons engineers).

Japan was probably too busy "culturally appropriating" from the US.

Germany, of course, is part of Europe. And would willingly die a lingering and painful death before admitting that it did anything that the US admired.



Speaking of the former, it might be amusing to see the reactions of the Japanese citizenry if some of our local idiots decided to go over to the islands and protest against the cultural appropriation of so much western stuff by the Japanese.

Haven't been to Nagasaki yet, though the setting on the water, with hills, probably ensures that it's a decent-looking place.


Speaking of which, we eagerly await Maet's comparative reviews of the bomb museums in the two nuke cities. My review of the Hiroshima museum - "not as bad as I expected".


One awesome thing in the Hiroshima museum is some fulsome emotional eye-rolling b.s. screed up on one wall in huge letters (English and Japanese) - standard issue crap about human suffering and destruction blah blah blah and something about what o what will mankind do to recover?


Directly opposite, other side of the hall, a huge picture-window makes up the entire wall. Through it, one views the beautiful parkland/greenery and beyond the gleaming beautiful modern skyline.

337 Weft,

The "envelope" here is what the builder done did when the building was being built.

Problem is, the IDIOT BUILDER used an open cell foam product.

Given that Hurricane Ike donated three inches of salt water into the house, you can imagine that the subfloor foam was soaked, and indeed, it was.

After replacing all of the subfloors, and installing new flooring, I've got conventional fiberglass installed under the floors, for now.

I've got a good foam-contractor identified, and will have the fiberglass removed and discarded, and closed cell foam sprayed in it's place.

And that, won't absorb water.

The house sits on ground 5 ft. above sea level, and the deck-level above the stilts is 4'9".

Hurricane Ike brought some damn water the hell above the 100 yr. flood line.

Still. One year of payments left till the house is free and clear. So, there's that.

366 junior,


Look up the data. Lots more B-24s made than B-17s.

The Liberator was faster at max load, had a heavier max load, and a longer range at max load.

That's why.

Pity though, the B-24 wasn't half the bullet sponge that the B-17 was. The '17 often flew home with damage that would've blown half a squadron of '24s outta the sky.

So, we revere the B-17, for it's apparent heroics.

But the B-24 heroes simply didn't return home to tell about it.

And that's why there are a few times more B-17 flying relics these days, and I think only one B-24 to compare.

But to the crews that flew 'em, whether or not they made it home?

Revered, and that, far more than the planes that they flew.

370 Jim, I think one other reason that few B-24s survive is that they were simply awful planes to fly.


Quite good at what they were built for, as you note - in terms of range, speed, payload - but I think I've read where after long missions in weather the young pilots would return completely exhausted from wrestling the planes every step of the way.


Quite a few B-17s were used for research and training of various kinds for some time after the war, even though the "type" was clearly obsolete. Not sure the B-24s were used the same way.


Last surviving PB-4Y Privateer - the maritime patrol variant with the single tall rudder, all of them built in SD - is now a water tanker/fire-fighting plane based in AZ, I think. Saw it at the centennial of naval aviation event at North Island a few years ago.

I think that was how President Fujimori - of Peru, not Peruvia - put it, when talking about the Shining Path Maoists who wreaked such havoc....

Someone or other asked him in an interview about opening talks with the 'rebels.'

"You don't talk to Communists," he said. "You shoot them."

Gotta say, one of the most surprising events of my life was the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact.

What makes it all the more surprising was that, except in Romania and Jugoslavia, it was largely bloodless.

I'd have expected to see Politburo members torn to pieces at the hands of the people, but it just didn't happen.

I guess everybody was too tired, broke, hungry, and demoralized, and just wanted to get on with trying to salvage what they could.

400 Palpatine I think that was part of it - exhaustion trumping revenge or rejoicing, at least in most of the Soviet Union.


But also, the seemingly built-in passive mindset, acceptance of authority, played a part. And the fact that while the tired edifice of Soviet power just collapsed (or whithered away ..... take that, Marxists), the underlying power structure didn't always do so.


Same people, in many cases. Life was still dominated by centralized institutions.

406 Finally settled in at work now.

Socialism will always turn into feudalism by another name because of certain aspects of human nature. GK Chesterton once observed that there has never been an aristocracy that doesn't behave exactly like a small gang. This also goes with what I was saying earlier, that any power that is created will be abused, it's never a question of if, but when - and the when is usually "as soon as someone can get away with it".

Socialism's promise of material equality for all requires that the government have the power to seize all of the wealth in the name of redistribution. However, once all of the wealth is seized, the government agency in charge of redistribution (and Dear Leader by virtue of being the ultimate authority over that agency) becomes the aristocracy by default.

Invariably, no matter what the intention of those who instituted the system, the result is that humanity has reverted to the mean, with a wealthy ruling elite, starving masses, and nothing between.

Which is why as far as I see it, the people who are using drones to smuggle in flash drives full of Western media (movies, TV shows, etc.) into North Korea are doing God's work. It shatters the propaganda of the regime just by doing what it does, and has become fairly popular with the young people there.

The other thing I wonder about is what will happen - or be done - to the thousands and tens of thousands of agents of state repression there.

The Germans, we de-Nazified, more or less. The soviets didn't even pretend to oust the Party apparatus from the machinery of the state. But the Norks - all those prison-camp guards, all those propagandists and loyal party members, the guys who carried out the mortar-executions, the dog-executions, the flamethrower executions, the ones who whipped and beat children in the camp mines and factories, the ones who orchestrated and perfected the instruments of inhumanity and horror.....

Maybe the world is filled with people better than I am. If I'd somehow survived the horrors of the Kim regime, I'd sure as Hell be looking for some serious and brutal payback.

Most plausible scenario -- complete extinction of NoKo; 50% casualties in SoKo; a few hundred thousand casualties in China and in some random city in Japan, the US, or elsewhere.

417 Apart from initial unpleasantness - mostly intra-mural, within the NK power structure - I can see NK actually collapsing without major catastrophe. Just a guess.


Sure, mass emigration to the south and to China in the short run, with associated problems.


But the south is rich enough to cushion/manage things. Sort of like West Germany - though it really hit their finances and the east just isn't the same. Probably take a long time for the north to get fully integrated.

I don't remember that one as clearly as I remember the fall of the wall. The people dancing on top of it, tearing it down with any means they could lay their hands on, the champagne bottles.

I was only seven, but I grasped the significance of it. That people abused by their own governments were tasting freedom for the first time. I imagined such things happening all over the world. A world of Little Americas, full of people who loved freedom. Maybe even a time that the Free World would mean the entire world, and filled me with an optimism for the future that has been dashed so many times since as to make me the eternal skeptic that I am now.

423 I'm not counting reprisals against the worst of the NK thugs as major chaos, I guess.


I can see the state sort of dissolving quietly beyond the core security organs. Unless the ignorance/brainwashing is as deep and wide as seems, uniquely in NK today, possible.


In the USSR enough time had passed since the darkest days of terror that by 1991, not many people had direct experience of the really serious stuff. Mostly a dull, grinding, cynical and corrupt machine that degraded everyone. Only a handful had recent experience of torture or anything approaching a gulag.


In NK it's ongoing and a lot fresher, so a little Romania-style romp might in fact be a good call, at least for a short time.

425 Random recollection...

There was that day -- August 1991? -- when Gorbachev,who had been blocked by the Old Guard, returned to Moscow -- the end of the Soviet Union.

Milady and I were at O'Hare, meeting an elderly gentleman about a business deal, when that broke on the TVs. Our acquaintance remarked that he remembered the first time.

Took us a beat to realize he meant 1917.

426 What made Beijing end differently from Moscow was that the Chinese had initially deployed local units - they were not up to the job, at all, of shooting and beating their neighbors and friends and relatives.

It was only when the units from outside military districts arrived that things got ugly.

The other thing I wonder about is what will happen - or be done - to the thousands and tens of thousands of agents of state repression there.

The Germans, we de-Nazified, more or less. The soviets didn't even pretend to oust the Party apparatus from the machinery of the state. But the Norks - all those prison-camp guards, all those propagandists and loyal party members, the guys who carried out the mortar-executions, the dog-executions, the flamethrower executions, the ones who whipped and beat children in the camp mines and factories, the ones who orchestrated and perfected the instruments of inhumanity and horror.....

Maybe the world is filled with people better than I am. If I'd somehow survived the horrors of the Kim regime, I'd sure as Hell be looking for some serious and brutal payback.

Worry more about the millions of agents of state fuck-up-ery here if we ever again approach a Constitutional state. Read Article 1, Section 8, and eliminate Federally-funded research; the FDA, the EPA, the Department of Education, the Department of Energy, the Department of Agriculture, the ATF, the DEA, the CDC, the Department of the Interior [oh, and BTW -- all Federal lands > 2% of the land area of a state should be devolved to the states]....

428 The Wall falling signified the collapse of the tired, hated system in various countries with long cultural memories of far more decent governance.


The reaction was not surprising. In the USSR, where apart from the Baltics nobody had any cultural memory of any sort of civilized governance, there was as much fear as relief. Little joy.


But to end my evening on a down note, all of this very recent and incredibly important and instructive history may as well have never happened, given the ignorance, mindset, and apparent instincts of a stunning % of Americans.

Add to my previous point, the dethroning of the various Political Officers and Commissars in HR Departments and public institutions.....



And the various NGO's who have unaccountably benefited from "settlements" with regulatory authorities -- where large sums of cash flowed to corrupt organizations.

I appreciate your thinking here, I really do. But you know, it only takes a handful of stout-hearted, hard-working believers to completely overthrow the world.

For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

446 "By farting louder the man is using passive-aggressive violence ... thus the woman fearing for her safety doesn't fart as loud as a sign of submissiveness ..."

I've discovered a logical flaw:

According to this person, men fart louder than women causing women to intentionally fart more softly than men.

But if women must intenionally fart more softly than men, it means that prior to the man farting, their farts were equal in volume to the man's.

But if their farts were initially equal in volume, then it cannot be said that the man, by virtue of the volume of his farts, was acting in an egregious manner. Indeed, his farts would not even have been remarked upon as unusual, were he sitting in the midst of a group of farting women.

In short, the shit between this leftard's ears has resulted in the release of a cloud of toxic brain gas in the midst of polite company. In short, the argument stinks.

448 The ONLY difference between Fascism and Progressivism is that Fascists are Nationalists (they love their country).

The political and economic policies are identical. Totalitarian rule for the purpose of central control of the economy by INDIRECT means, rather than the Communist version of Marxism where the state owns the means of production.

Obamacare is a perfect example - health insurers are nominally still independent companies, but the Secretary of the HHS "shall determine" literally every detail of how their 'business' operates. The Communist / Bernie Sanders model of course would be "single-payer".

Even people who can't stand to listen to Obama-and I really don't like to either-should listen. It's worth a guffaw even if you roll your eyes to go along with the laugh

493 I have a question about those smashed burgers.
The article says - cook it really crusty on one side (one minute) then flip and immediately stack with cheese in between.
Does that mean the two crusty sides are facing e the cheese and the less cooked side is face out?

That is a possible explanation. More straight forward explanation is Obama is a SCOAMF

496 I am split on lotteries. I don't think govt. should be in the business of promoting get-rich schemes and essentially fraud. I never buy tickets because I can do math. But I am not necessarily against them since it is sort of a revenge tax on the Dem base.

.I consider it a stealth tax on people who are takers for the most part.




I look at it as a voluntary tax, if you want to play, you pay, vs. the IRS. With the IRS, I've played every year since I was 16. Whether I liked it or not.

497 If I'm not mistaken, Obama was fond of using the term "the ol' okie-doke" back in 2008-2009. And we learned then that it was a favored rhetorical term of Malcolm X.

Not that I'm suggesting that Obama is any sort of radical black Muslim or anything. Of course not!

Loan sharks, aka Visa.

An amendment to any proposed transgender access laws, stating that said law will become effective only after the child of any politician voting for it spends one night in lockup with a convicted pederast. With a strict admonition to the pederast to behave himself.

Another picture for you, dear lady, carrying on from my post yesterday about the murder of Bill Taylor:

http://goo.gl/s6mkv0

Mabel Normand was known as "the female Chaplin" and had a huge success in comedy parts, both on her own and, most famously, with Roscoe Arbuckle in their "Fatty and Mabel" series of Keystone shorts. A noted party girl, she begged Taylor for help in quitting cocaine, and he was instrumental not only in weaning her off the stuff, but in running off the dope peddlers who tried to re-hook her (which was considered as a motive for Taylor's murder).

Normand already had a tarnished rep because of her wild habits and her connection to Taylor (they were rumored to be lovers - not true, as Taylor was gay - and Normand was also briefly a suspect in the murder) further damaged her image. Audiences were also tiring of her, and her successive movies lost money. Another scandal, where her chauffeur shot a man at a party - finally finished off whatever career Normand might have had and she died of tuberculosis in 1930 at age 37.

518 Battle for equality?

What does allowing mentally delusional men into females' bathrooms and locker rooms have to do with equality? Who is equal to whom? Are the females "equal" to the males with the mental problems?

Opposition to these laws isn't opposition to "equality," it's opposition to insanity. (The insanity of the politicians proposing the laws). Gender isn't a "social construct," it's a verifiable biological fact. Females don't have penises, testicles, or XY chromosomes. Anybody who does have those things doesn't belong in a girls' locker room. And men don't have ovaries, uteruses, vaginas, and they don't give birth (no matter what People Magazine keeps trying to tell you).

It's ironic that the Dims, the self-styled "party of science," are the ones pushing these anti-science laws. There is a helluva lot more scientific, verifiable proof of the existence of genders than there is of "global warming."

MPPP, that's fascinating. I went in search of more info on her, and happened to come across this. Stevie Nicks actually wrote a song about Mabel, and how she saw her life paralleling Mabel's back in her wild days.

520 Charlotte Observer turned off comments for that editorial.

Cowards do cowardly things.

This needs to be made personal for the families of.these courageous editors. Their daughters need to see a lot of ugly dongs in their locker rooms. Then we'll see.
