Mid-Morning Open Thread [CBD]


Buffalo Drive.jpg

This was sent to me by OregonMuse (The Book Pimp), presumably as a farcical presentation of an insufficiently evolved interpretation of Native American hunting techniques. Obviously this cannot be accurate, because as we all know, the entirety of the Native American experience is respectful of nature and is on a higher plane of consciousness, with its holistic connection to the earth. It is unthinkable that any Native American tribe would be so disrespectful of nature's bounty that they would wantonly slaughter the innocent bison.

In fact, it is now clear that this is a micro-aggression, so any of you who require a safe space may click on this link....

8 Native American hunting is much more civilized now, states like Wisconsin provide them special dispensation unavailable to other hunters to drive out in their trucks and four-wheelers, spotlight deer with ultra-high-powered lights in the middle of the night, and then drop them with modern centerfire rifles. Very respectful, very traditional.

This sounds vaguely familiar. Was it an artist? Anyway, to recap: dude sees wife's pubic hair on wedding night, freaks out, does not touch her, ever.

Dude then takes up masturbation, since he isn't getting it on with his wife. We know this because he made a secret little mark in his diary every time he whacked it.

Dude's messed up. Probably an artist. Or a chess player. That wouldn't surprise me, either.

Obviously after the nobel savages of North American had been corrupted by the evil white Europeans because the nobel savages of the plains didn't have horses until the invaders from Europe brought them to the New World.

So this slaughter of innocent wild life is solely the fault of the Christian invaders from Europe.

45 Were this painting completely historically accurate, there would be another panel to it, panorama-style, depicting the aftermath of this hunt:

1,000 carcasses rotting in the sun and the Injuns decamping to go raid their nearest rival tribe's village to kidnap new squaws to fuck and satisfy their post-hunt bloodlust, leaving only a handful of properly skinned and parted out bison corpses. And 300 acres of scorched prairie.

Sharkman rates this painting's accuracy at 3 teepees out of 5.

Meanwhile, back in The States:

Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson opened up Monday about his marijuana use, but said he would not use the drug during his campaign or if hes elected president.

Johnson acknowledged using marijuana recreationally "as recently as a month ago." But he pledged not to use it going forward during his campaign or if hes elected president. "The notion of getting that call at midnight or two oclock. people need to know theres a firm voice on the other side," he said.

Johnson left a position as an executive at a marijuana company to run for president.

Interesting study on immigration, assimilation, and political ideology:

http://tinyurl.com/zja6xht

I'll just quote from the conclusion:




Immigrants have very similar political and policy views when compared to

fourth-generation Americans. For those policy and political questions

where first-generation immigrants have statistically significant

differences of opinions, the second and third generations do not vary

compared to the fourth generation, meaning that political assimilation

is complete by the second generation.

Posted by: Vic

There's a cliff in CO, Montana, somewhere like that, where thousands of bones of extinct North American horses, camels, etc were found at the bottom of.

Clovis tools have been found with extinct horse DNA on them. The horse went extinct around 10-12k years ago here, but due to migration across the Bering Strait survived in the rest of the world.

It was then reintroduced to the Americas by the Spaniards.

They forced their way here illegally when the water barrier between the continents was temporarily dried up.

That's why they won't allow autopsies or research into the ancient dead corpses that people sometimes dig up. They don't want anyone to know that they came here less than 20,000 years ago and started killing and destroying the native species.

128 Love the commentary supplied when you click the painting. The author describes the painting as basically reflective of reality with some innacuracies.

One of the innacuracies? One of the Indians is using a woman's pack saddle rather than riding bareback.

The commenter even reveals that a short cliff such as is shown is called a "buffalo jump", which tells you all you need to know about how commonly this hunting practice was utilized.

Despite depicting something as wasteful as this, the painter still believed that Indian culture was far superior to that of whites and that their lives represented unfettered freedom.

Rather, of course, than just another tribe of humans being just as human as any other group of people in Earth's savage history. I think the only thing the artist could have added to this piece to make it more accurate would have been some smallpox infected blankets.

I'm not sure it can be quantified, but it's undeniable that social order does develop over time.

229 We used to call that 'deportation force' Immigration officers.


That isn't what Trump said. He said "deportation force".


Trump was pressed for specifics on
MSNBC's "Morning Joe" by co-host Mika Brzezinski, who asked if he would
have a "massive deportation force.""You're
going to have a deportation force, and you're going to do it humanely,"
Trump said. "Don't forget, Mika, that you have millions of people that
are waiting in line to come into this country and they're waiting to
come in legally. And I always say the wall, we're going to build the
wall. It's going to be a real deal. It's going to be a real wall."


http://tinyurl.com/zrytrk3


So what exactly is this "deportation force"?


Actually I think Trump walked into a gotcha question from Mika, and then as usual, stupid oozed from his mouth in trying to answer it.



So, we don't deport.

See, no one here is arguing this position. I'm all in favor of deporting recent illegals. I'm not in favor of some dragnet force that goes house to house trying to hunt down every last one, particularly ones who have been here a long time and are being productive people.



And that is one of the frustrating parts of this discussion. The discussion is so polarized, that either you must be in favor of deporting every single illegal, or you must be in favor of granting amnesty to every single illegal. I don't favor either end.

One of the simpler tactics is to lead someone deeper into the weeds by parsing out all of the trivial exceptions to a general statement. It blunts a person's point that way. It's similar to what Sexypig was doing yesterday on the "Trump and the judge" thread when he/she was going on about Italian-American Bar Associations and Irish American Bar Associations and so on.

It is best to just stick to your conclusion and let that person go off on his own blathering on in his sophistry about exceptions and codicils and so forth.

244 Anywho...as one who hopes to wed an immigrant, and who enjoyed through young adulthood talking with my relatives from the old country, I'll offer these observations:

1) You can have the welfare state, or you can have immigration. Pick one;

2) It is useless and embarrassing to argue that immigrants - especially the post '65 masses from the Third World - do not in all respects correspond in terms of culture, habits of life, and political traditions, with the traditional character of the citizenry of the United States who arrived before, say, the '20's or '30's;

3) Differences in travel, communications, and the like, have made it possible for a recent immigrant to remain in more or less regular, if not constant, contact with his homeland and its culture and habits of thought. My angel came here in '78, and the only communication with the place they left was by letter, which took weeks to months; the same was true for my own families' immigrants.

Do you favor "enforcing the speed limit laws"? Doing what is necessary to crack down every last person who goes 1 mph over the speed limit? Because if you don't, you are opposed to the rule of law, you know....

Do you ever hear anyone say, well we should only arrest 20% of murderers? Or well, I realize there are thousands of people out there driving drunk, but really, there's no need to try and arrest them all. If we just arrest the "bad" drunks, it's OK.

Yet for illegals, the idea that you allow 70-80% of criminals to just walk away is perfectly acceptable.

273 Yeah you can go and see places where there are piles of bones still at the base of cliffs. I had a little chat with an author who claimed to be Native American and he became enraged when I pointed out that tribes were notorious for horrific torture of captives, theft, and massacre. That several tribes such as Mandan were wiped out not by Americans but Sioux. He was adamant that no evil was ever committed by 'his people.'

That really is all that needs to be said.


"Rigor". "Deportation force". Let's add a few: "self-awareness" and "irony".


Words that have perfectly good, specific meanings (that you and many others cannot seem to understand), are "slurs".


If you don't understand that enforcement of laws is required for them to be effective, and that anything other than full enforcement of immigration law and return to rule of law in related matters internally guarantees (guarantees) exacerbation of the current situation - probably massively so - then you are not a serious person. At least on this huge issue.


And the "study" you reference is most likely meaningless (aside from whatever utility it has anyway - how are political views measured ..... is it just another "Fox News viewers LESS informed!" bit of garbage?).


So places that are now dominated by racism and authoritarianism and lawlessness and rent-seeking in "governance" - CA, for example - that are also without exception the states with the largest immigrant populations (recent, longer ago, legal, illegal) will ..... stay that way.

300 See, no one here is arguing this position. I'm all in favor of deporting recent illegals. I'm not in favor of some dragnet force that goes house to house trying to hunt down every last one, particularly ones who have been here a long time and are being productive people.

How long is a "long time?" 2 years? 30?

With the consequence of your proposal here being, of course, an incentive that if an illegal can escape notice for a period of time then he's home free. And that incents other people to try it. Kind of like the way people keep playing the Powerball.

"Anyone" who doesn't "support" Donald Trump's "deportation force" is labeled as being in "favor" of "amnesty" or "open borders" even though it is entirely "consistent" to be "opposed" to both some "deportation force" and also "opposed" to "mass amnesty"

But this is all foolishness.

Ask yourself what is the purpose of speed limit laws, and what is the purpose of immigration laws? The answers to those are the key to the whole matter, and show the two simply are not comparable as categories of legislation.

We both got a little teary and nostalgic about the fun we all had with our kids. They moved to the 'rich' section of town, but are thinking of moving back into our older neighborhood of starter homes. For the immigrants who work hard, work on citizenship, and enjoy and appreciate their lives in the USA, I say wonderful.

But, to go with 'speeding' - it is possible to speed without meaning to, without realizing it; there are even circumstances under the law in which violation of the local speed limits is permissible. It is difficult to imagine immigrating accidentally, and it beggars imagination to conceive of a circumstance that would make illegal immigration permissible on the basis of some other legally-recognized necessity.

341 chemjeff, lay off the NPR. I say that because you bring the opposite of "rigor" to any public policy discussion, and use idiotic Beltway make-believe terms like "polarizing". Such "concepts" are for unserious emoting know-nothings, not for people who actually care about freedom, people's welfare, and principles.


Or maybe it's that you just can't reason logically (outside chemistry).


For the billionth time, enforcement of immigration law used to be done routinely, whenever there was contact with the state, or the legal system, or aspects of the private economy that are highly regulated.


Open a checking account. Get pulled over for speeding. Register your kids for local school. Apply for a job. On, and on, and on.


And, for known concentrations of illegals, like certain industries, of course targeted enforcement actions. It only takes a few.


For the billionth time, educate yourself about what happened in just a few months in AZ after they passed an enforcement-enhancement law.


Just changing the body english of the state/State on this matter produces instant, dramatic results. Of course.


Oh - and for the other bizarre AOSHQ myth on a related matter - that border barriers don't work. Yes they do. Of course they do. And of course - obviously - they are a key part of a comprehensive restoration of rule of law. Leaving aside entirely the huge security issue they address.


But - enough. It's all a lost cause, America is hopelessly crippled by what can only be called the stupidity of the bulk of its citizens. And their descent into infantile moral narcissism.

All of those police officers will wind up hassling people who aren't doing anything terribly wrong, except going 66 mph in a 65 mph zone, and will lead to all sorts of other interactions with police, which will inevitably erode further our search-and-seizure protections of the fourth amendment.
2. mandates that the government imposes on *law-abiding* citizens to prove that we *aren't* one of those speeders. Similar to the breathalyzer devices that are now mandated to be placed on the cars of repeat drunk drivers. Because the government really can't catch every last criminal, the government will instead force everyone to obey by limiting their liberties in other ways. They do this sort of thing now with gun laws, force everyone to prove they *aren't* criminals instead of the government proving that a potential buyer *is* a criminal.

And I am jealous enough of my own liberties that I don't want to see any more of them eroded in the name of tracking down a problem that is, in the grand scheme of things, not all that serious.
I see the issue analogously when it comes to illegal immigration. Of course we increase border security and of course we crack down on visa overstays and of course we do a better job of enforcing the law. But going to extended lengths in order to track down every last one is just foolish and counterproductive. We wouldn't do that for any other law on the books, not even the most heinous ones. We have unsolved murders and rapes on the books you know.

355 Deportations wouldn't be necessary in most cases. Simply eliminating sanctuary cities, laws preventing cops from finding out about legal status, enforcing existing immigration laws, and cracking down on businesses hiring illegals would take care of the bulk of the problem.

You'll never eliminate illegal immigration, particularly in a nation with borders as huge as the USA. But the current situation is insanely out of control and must be dialed back. Immigration and citizenship laws exist for good reasons, and only internationalist jackwagons think otherwise. They need to be enforced for orderly structure of culture and society.

But when a person is speeding, and is caught in the act, surely, something ought to be done?



But this is all foolishness.



Ask yourself what is the purpose of speed limit laws, and what is
the purpose of immigration laws? The answers to those are the key to
the whole matter, and show the two simply are not comparable as
categories of legislation.



Of course the two have different purposes, but the point of my raising the analogy is to illustrate the absurdity of trying to "enforce the law" without any considerations to cost or benefits. We don't even do that for the most serious criminal acts like murder and rape.

Given we don't do what the law already requires, on what possible basis do you posit the fever-dream of going 'to extended lengths' to track down every last one?

But I think I get it. Personal liberty is a value, and a very great one. Of course, your chosen method - in this instance - of guarding your liberty has the disadvantage of permitting the fundamental transformation of the polity the traditions of which protected it by the simple expedient of allowing persons not raised in those traditions to become - nationally - a substantial plurality - and, in many areas of high immigration of all types - very nearly a political majority.

But I'm sure that traditions and culture have very little to do with politics, so no worries. And if CATO are wrong, well, we won't know it for two generations, four, tops.

So there's that.

There is a cost to illegal immigration.
What cost to your liberties are you willing to sustain in order to track down every single illegal?

430 Given we don't do what the law already requires, on what possible basis do you posit the fever-dream of going 'to extended lengths' to track down every last one?



Don't really have to track them down. Do what they do with warrants. Caught? Go directly to deportation center. Gone next day.

Someone with a warrant goes directly to jail. They don't get to go home and get their affairs in order. Too bad, so sad.

Maybe this will help differentiate between illegals and every other lawbreaker in the world.

By his very presence inside the borders of America the illegal is a lawbreaker. That is starkly different than even the most recalcitrant drunk driver, who is not always breaking the law.

So....every single contact with officialdom is an opportunity to identify and deal with the illegal, unlike the other lawbreakers you cite.

It is a canard that it will cost too much.

Could ask Hillary. It was her hubby who had his AG send out the troops to capture that dangerous Elian Gonzalez so she should know.

Seriously, this is getting silly. It's called illegal immigration because it's, wait for it, illegal. No amount of time magically makes it not illegal.

We don't need shock troops going door to door to root out every illegal. There are numerous steps that could be made like making people show their birth certificates for enrolling in schools, getting jobs, etc. as well as a host of other things that could be done to make life here exceedingly difficult for any illegal to be in the country.

Would you get all of them? Probably not. But it would be a monstrous step in the right direction. Nobody is allowed to be in Mexico or other countries illegally, what possible logic could you be using to justify any of them being here illegally regardless of how long they have been here?

Honestly, have you considered how much state and federal money is spent on illegals? Public school for the kids, health care, the grab-bag of entitlements (EBT, welfare, WIC, free school lunches, in-state tuition), the loss of tax revenue (for those who work under the table), etc. In addition there are costs to citizens with things like crimes committed by illegals (Mugging, rape, murder), drug trade's toll on communities (for MS-13, cartel illegals), the financial mess for people whose identities are stolen, people who are in traffic accidents w/uninsured illegals, the lack of revenue to state for various things like building permits, unpaid traffic tickets, etc.. And on and on.

The discussion on cheating and law breaking is enlightening, I think, and to this respect:

Lying, cheating, law breaking - traditional values in general, have been under assault for a pretty long time.

The reasons I think, are myriad, but mostly they are seen to be archaic and rooted in the supernatural instead of originating from the new higher power - man.

I could say a lot more about this, but draw your own conclusions.

Yeah, I get it - no alt-rightist mobs in classy and luxurious uniforms rounding up people and stuffing them onto south-bound cattle cars; you don't want that. No serious person does.

A British four-year-old dubbed “Jihadi Junior, who has frequently appeared in Islamic State propaganda videos, has been smuggled from Syria into Sweden by his mother for an operation, reports suggest.

Isa';s London-born mother Grace, 24, is thought to have taken her son from Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) stronghold Raqqa to Sweden after suffering illness for some months.

Grace, who renamed herself Khadijah after leaving her home in Lewisham, southeast London, traveled to the Middle East with her son in 2012.

The Sun newspaper says it is possible the pair passed through nine countries to reach Europe, yet were not challenged on the 2,000 mile (3,000km) trip or in hospital.

Sources told the newspaper Grace chose Sweden because she was married to a Swede, Abu Bakr, after joining the terrorists. He has since died fighting

520 A cache of rare silver coins from the Hasmonean period, more than 2,000 years ago, has been discovered in the Modi'in area, the Israel Antiquities Authority announced Tuesday.

The director of the excavation, Avraham Tendler, said "The cache may have belonged to a Jew who hid
his money in the hope of coming back to collect it, but he was unlucky and never did return."

The coins from approximately 126 B.C.E. were discovered in April hidden in a rock crevice in an agricultural estate that was discovered during an excavation being carried out before construction of a new neighborhood began.

But according to the Palis, Jews never lived there? Go figure

Yeah, i think he did.

He forgot that the law has established mechanism and protections, that the police and the courts - at least in this country, and for at least the next two generations - tend to be hemmed in by the law itself.

It's all or nothing folks - either we arrest and deport every illegal alien by smashing down every door in the country ,either we use choppers and drones and interceptors to interdict every last person driving 26 in a 25 mph zone, or we're not enforcing the law.

And since maximal enforcement is absurd and dangerous, we can see why minimal enforcement is safer, and non-enforcement safest altogether.

531 Seriously, this is getting silly. It's called illegal immigration
because it's, wait for it, illegal. No amount of time magically makes it
not illegal.



Well, yes and no.


Suppose a guy robs a convenience store. Definite crime. But that is the only crime he ever commits, and after that, he reforms his ways and no longer does anything criminal. Years and years go by and he is a productive member of society now. If the police later on finally catch him and want to throw him in jail, as a principled matter that is the correct thing to do, but as a practical matter, is that really the *best* use of scarce resources?



We don't need shock troops going door to door to root out every
illegal. There are numerous steps that could be made like making people
show their birth certificates for enrolling in schools, getting jobs,
etc. as well as a host of other things that could be done to make life
here exceedingly difficult for any illegal to be in the country.



I am fine with all of that, to the extent that it does not unduly burden actual citizens with onerous mandates. That is one of the fears I have with the whole illegal immigration, that if the Trumpist viewpoint gets its way, that the government will decide to crack down on illegal immigration *not necessarily* by making life more difficult for illegals, but by making life more difficult for *the rest of us*. Because, let's be honest, it is cheaper to just issue a mandate and expect everyone else to obey, than it is to hire and train new police officers to enforce the law.

Posted by: CrustyB at June 07, 2016 11:51 AM (GvSpB)

546 >>Well, yes and no.

No, the answer is just no. If you enter this country illegally there is no statute of limitations that makes you legal. You will always be illegal.

We all know that we are a country in serious trouble. Fiscally, morally, culturally, in just about ever way. One of the most obvious ways this shows is the attempt by many to just ignore laws they don't like. This is a recipe for disaster.


>>Suppose a guy robs a convenience store. Definite crime. But that is the only crime he ever commits, and after that, he reforms his ways and no longer does anything criminal.

This example has absolutely nothing to do with illegal immigration. If you are here illegally and you are caught you should be deported and I do not care how long you've been here or where you came from. The cost of not enforcing immigration laws far outweigh the costs of obeying the law, fiscally, morally and culturally.

557 Well then, let's use a simpler example.
We have speed limits in this country, but of course, they are rarely enforced strictly.
Do you favor "enforcing the speed limit laws"? Doing what is necessary to crack down every last person who goes 1 mph over the speed limit? Because if you don't, you are opposed to the rule of law, you know....
Perhaps the costs might outweigh the benefits in this particular case?
If you are not in favor of tracking down every last speeder, would that make you opposed to the rule of law?
Posted by: chemjeff at June 07, 2016 10:51 AM (uAvJJ)

____

I'm not opposed to enforcing speed limits. I realize it's not feasible to pull over everyone who speeds. But that's not the same as saying I'm totes cool with letting people drive 90 in a 50 zone and looking the other way when it happens, which is your position.

Now with speeding, the only way to catch speeders is put a cop with a radar gun on the highway. So by its very nature, unless we hire 10M cops to do nothing but pull people over, people will get away with speeding.

However, with illegals you don't need 10M USCIS cops going after illegals. All you have to do is make it really, really, really hard for an illegal to live here. That means, no licenses, no mortgage, no ability to rent an apartment, etc. You don't need to deport 30M people. They will deport themselves when living her becomes a total pain in the ass.

Posted by: runner at June 07, 2016 11:42 AM (c6/9Q)

Okay let's consider these.
A Wall - I am only lukewarm about the wall. I think it would be more of a cronyist public works boondoggle than anything effective at stopping illegal immigration, especially since the biggest single source of illegal immigration is visa overstays, not by sneaking over the border.
E-Verify and Massive fines for employers hiring without verification - this is essentially an unfunded mandate placed on every single employer. Why should private businesses be the enforcement arm of the state?
Close sanctuary cities - I agree
no "path to citizenship" and no
benefits for illegals - I agree with the no benefits to illegals. I would be fine with a "path to citizenship" for a small subset of illegals once a lot of other conditions have been met first, including greater verifiable border security, but not until the.

Posted by: chemjeff at June 07, 2016 11:56 AM (uAvJJ)

561 Plus ChemmJeff,

I know my odds of getting pulled over are pretty low. But still I won't drive 90 in a 50, because I know IF I do het pulled over, I'll be in a world of hurt. I'll have a huge fine, maybe even jail time for reckless driving going that far over the limit.

But for illegals, it's basically, get pulled over going 90, spend 5 mins with the trooper who then says, please don't do this again, and lets you go. There is virtually no penalty for being here illegally and so, there is no disincentive for anyone to come over.

We talked about this before - it's called prudence, phronesis, in Greek. it's a piece of the practical man's wisdom.

It is a mistake, Aristotle teaches, to expect of all sciences the precision encountered in geometry. This is wisdom, this is true.

The law, as an intellectual and practical matter, is not subject to the strictures imposed on, let us say, mathematical, geometrical, and other sciences, precisely because that with which it concerns itself - man and his actions - is not itself subject to them.

Stick to chemistry - it has the precision and rigor you seek - but do not imagine that its standards, or the standards of any other science, are applicable tot he standards of any other.

as the Philosopher says, we do not say that an architect is a poor one because the stones of his buildings do not match the fit and precision of the stones of a gemcutter. They aim at different ends, and so use different means, and start from different first principles.

No, you miss the point.

I'm not saying "do nothing". I'm saying that "enforce the law" is a position of principle that cannot be executed with 100% fidelity. That there will always be people who get away with breaking the law. We can spend more and more resources to try to catch more and more criminals, but at some point it reaches the point of diminishing returns. At THAT point, but not before, it's time to consider some form of limited amnesty, I think. It is the same idea as tax amnesty when it comes to tax cheats and the like.

584 Suppose a guy robs a convenience store. Definite crime. But that is the only crime he ever commits, and after that, he reforms his ways and no longer does anything criminal. Years and years go by and he is a productive member of society now. If the police later on finally catch him and want to throw him in jail, as a principled matter that is the correct thing to do, but as a practical matter, is that really the *best* use of scarce resources?

Horrible analogy.

Everything the illegal does in the US is also illegal. Working here is illegal. Using welfare is illegal. Driving without a license/insurance is illegal. So he didn't just commit that one crime. Every day of his presence in this country is a series of criminal acts.

648 "Seriously, this is getting silly. It's called illegal immigration because it's, wait for it, illegal. No amount of time magically makes it not illegal."

Agreed. We need to end the idea that Illegal Immigrants somehow have a right to be here, and then work from there. Until we do, we have de facto open borders and considering any kind of "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" is absurd.

It does to the NeverTrump crowd, and that's all that matters.

I will say, however, that even though I am a First Amendment absolutist, it would warm the black, shriveled thing in my chest called a heart if a President Trump went after oh, say, the NYT, WaPo and assorted other rags and subjected them to RICO investigations, suspicion of in-kind contributions to the Democrat party, subversion, leaking national security secrets and using crappy ink that gets all over your hands. Lawfare the fuckers 24/7.

653 Chemjeff-

I don't think anyone is suggesting you leave. But you seem to have a perspective that those of us who want full enforcement of immigration laws are unreasonable at best, racist at worst.

I'm helping a friend bring a boat back from Bermuda. I had to get a letter from him complete with information on his boats documentation to enter Bermuda because I am arriving on a one-way ticket. I then have to clear customs when I return in the harbor, I can not leave the boat before clearing or I run the risk of run of getting sideways with the border security.

I am an American and have been since birth. Why should I have to obey the law if thousands stream in here every day and flip our laws the bird?

662 622 For heaven's sake I remember when Moo Moo was a troll. Now he is the vanguard of the Trumpian right, and I'm the troll.

That is because Moo wrote us all checks for $1 million, which is what he earns before I've had my first cup of coffee in the morning. Thanks to Moo I can now buy the polo pony I have always dreamt of owning.

If any other troll is interested in sending me a large sum of money I will also call them "vanguard of the Trumpian right" or "king of the horde" or anything else they wish to be called. I am not proud that way.

663 Apropos of somebody maybe:

Back in the CompuServe days, on Religion Forum, there was a disruptive fellow from a Christian-ish sect. He was tolerated for a long time, many thought too long. Nobody cared if he promulgated his own theology. But, he couldn't resist jumping deeply into practically every discussion with his "you're wrong, I'm right" hustling. There were others of his sect who were not so pushy. Wasn't the sect; it was him.

Some time after he was banned from Religion Forum, I ran across him in some computer-specific or gamer forum (I forget which) and saw him holding forth in an ordinary, personable way.

Funny how people have their froth-at-the-mouth trigger subjects but can otherwise seem balanced and sociable.

(Which reminds me: family reunion coming up this weekend. Oboy!)

For all my seasonal gas engines I only use the non ethanol gas that is a little spendy but well worth the extra cost. Having to rebuild the carbs biannually was a pain in the ass.

679 See, no one here is arguing this position. I'm all in favor of deporting recent illegals. I'm not in favor of some dragnet force that goes house to house trying to hunt down every last one, particularly ones who have been here a long time and are being productive people.



And that is one of the frustrating parts of this discussion. The discussion is so polarized, that either you must be in favor of deporting every single illegal, or you must be in favor of granting amnesty to every single illegal. I don't favor either end.

Posted by: chemjeff at June 07, 2016 10:43 AM (uAvJJ)


And you are the one who is polarizing it, dillweed. Nobody here is advocating some kind of door-to-door search for illegals; that's a strawman you erected.

680 Hey chemjeff,

Don't go. Until about nine months ago you were a reasonably normal fellow (for a moron),

but you've obviously lost your mind over Trump and immigration.

Here's an experiment (which I conduct on myself when I think I may be getting too worked up about something_-

stay here but avoid talking about Trump or immigration for 30 days.

If you can do it, great you're probably not nuts.

If you can't, well...you may be one fork short of a place setting...and need to reassess things.

Posted by: Sticky Wicket at June 07, 2016 12:04 PM (i2t8l)


Fix the one you have. Parts are quite cheap. Give the engine a valve grind, and set the valve clearance. It will need to be done, because ethanol "enhanced" fuel is hard on small engine valves. But it's easy to do. If it's an older engine with ignition points in it, you can buy a module for a few dollars to upgrade to electronic ignition.
