9 "I worked with over 300 people during email exchanges, predominantly in the State Department," [Hildebeast] said. "I had no reason to second guess their judgments about the material that they were exchanging and that they would forward or send to me."

What a psycho bitch. She is just rubbing this shit in our faces.

This reminds me of that Anthony Daniels quote about communist lies:

"Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to."

19 Althouse (who makes me sick 66% of the time) posted a list of the demands the protesters at the '68 Dem Convention made. Point 15 is amusing:

"15. We believe that people should fuck all the time, anytime,
whomever they wish. This is not a program to demand but a simple
recognition of the reality around us."

I think we're in for another round of this stuff this year.

63 Just what Dallas needs is the JEF dropping in. All the extra security involved, streets being closed, etc. I believe that he had a hand in inciting all these police being killed. The day after he speaks 4 separate incidents occur, can't be a coincidence. I wish the mayor, police chief, or even governor Abbott would tell him, no thanks, you wouldn't be helping. If he gives another speech I wonder how many more whites/cops will be killed.

A while back, some conversation steered towards good movies and "Secondhand Lions" came up.

Quite few people had never seen it. Well, FYI, it's coming on a
channel called LAFF TV (I think) at 9pm eastern. I'll have to move the
rabbit ears around for that.

I believe that Hillary Clinton is one of those people who simply does not really understand the difference between truth and lies. She is very rich and powerful so she is largely insulated from the consequences of believing things that are greatly at variance from reality.


I have met some salesmen who seemed to have that way of looking at the world. They would say whatever they thought was most likely to get them a sale and I don't think that the concepts of truth/lies or reality/fantasy ever intruded into their consciousness. Hillary Clinton was trained as a lawyer and that is a profession where reality seems to be whatever the most talented lawyer can argue enough people into believing. She is surrounded by a lot of younger people who have been educated in the whole Post Modern philosophy that there is no such thing as reality, only competing narratives and power.

And it all got consistently worse until the mid-'70's, until we were all so exhausted we lapsed into national malaise, or whatever Carter called it.

Good for you RD. We had an interesting encounter w/ our water/sewer dept a few yrs ago.

After many yrs of trouble, ie sewer backups, it was discovered we were running into an old cesspool, not connected to the sewer system.

I had some leverage as the family farm had sold them the land for the sewer dept and recently sold more for an expansion. They got good money, but didn't hold them up for extortion as they felt a civic duty.

So I asked for my money back as I hadn't used the sewer system I was paying for, close to 20 yrs.

They offered me 1/4 back, I said no, was gonna take them to court. We settled for 1/2, so there has been no sewer charge since.

I'm thinking/hoping they forget when they should start charging us because I think it should have happened by now.

I'm not going to inquire or remind them. I should have gotten 100%.

Not a big fan of the bannings. Missed eman's final transgressions, so can't say, but he was hardly a disruptive or nasty regular, so that surprised me.


Moo was kind of an institution in his own right. Contrarian, chew-toy.

It is not a resonable position to think that the Secretary of State never dealt with any secret information. Hence, she received secret information on her private server-in violation of the law.

313 You know, a far better index may be insulin, and there's an insulin index that is coming into use. GI represents the area of the curve of the blood glucose level for 2 hours after ingestion of a specific quantity of the food. Carb content, that is.

There's several weights but the standard they all seem to agree is the best is to define pure glucose as 100.

The glycemic load multiples the GI by the weight of a portion size.

Insulin index looks at the actual insulin response to a given food of a fixed calorie content, and is the area under the curve of the insulin level.

Two foods with the same GI or GL do not have to have the same insulin index.

And non-carbs, such as a big steak, will have a (low) insulin response. This is the body converting protein to glucose.

It has to be REAL peanut butter - the kind you have to stir; the kind that says "Ingredient: Peanuts."

365 Not a big fan of the bannings. Missed eman's final transgressions, so can't say, but he was hardly a disruptive or nasty regular, so that surprised me.


Moo was kind of an institution in his own right. Contrarian, chew-toy.


Since AmishDude's demise cannot recall a banning of any non-drive by types who were vocally on one particular side of the GOP divide, but that could well be my limited data set, and not a pattern.

Same here. I didn't see the comments that got them banned. Moo Moo contributed a lot of value in his comments, but was a contrarian for contrarian's sake. He did like to stir up shit. I know eman has been around forever, but I never particularly noticed any assholery on his part.

370 I was contemplating Ace's 2nd banning post of the week.

Back in the primordial soup days of Compuserve, one of the best forum sysops, GG, was swift and strict. She never let trolls and disruptors linger. She had her strict rules (warning, temp ban, full ban, if you were lucky; immediagte full ban if you were really bad).

She never let the "whuttabout free speeeech?" arguers whine about her bannings linger, either. She'd ban them. Other good sysops on that service did the same.

Mostly, she never talked about it much - she just did her job, keeping the streets safe for normal folk. It wasn't that GG was hard-hearted; it's just that she understood what it took to keep the peace and did it.

When I read Ace fuming about the bannings he does, I think, despite his porcupine exterior and seeming anger, what's really happening is, he's a nice guy, a soft-hearted fellow who doesn't much like the (absolutely necessary) job of playing Cop. Ticks him off to have to do it, even though it comes with the territory of having created the best such place on the web.

I've been a parent, a boss, a landlord, even briefly a sysop, and I know it's not fun banning, evicting, firing, or grounding. If you don't, though, all good folks leave.

Posted by: Insomniac at July 08, 2016 08:50 PM (0mRoj)

*dons nerd hat*
Hydrogenated oils are called that because they have extra hydrogen atoms on the end of their lipid chains. Unsaturated fats are missing one of the extra hydrogens and polyunsaturated fats are missing more than one. Saturated fats are 'bad' for you because it takes more energy to digest them (that pesky hydrogen doesn't like to break off from the rest of the molecule) so the body is more likely to store them in your fat cells. Yes, I was re-reading my animal nutrition textbook last night, why do you ask?

434 I'm looking at the insulin index of various foods. Stupidly they've decided to use white bread as the 100 level, not glucose, like they've decided on with the GI.

At any rate, white bread is 100. Jellybeans are the highest, at 160. Then Mars Bars at 122. Guess what? Potatoes are number 3, with a score of 121.

IOW, eating a given caloric quantity of potatoes gives you the same insulin response at eating the same quantity of Mars Bars. But potatoes are a vegetable, not junk food. The "satiety score" of potatoes is much higher, meaning they make you feel fuller, but the insulin load is the same.

Crackers, ice cream, and cookies are hitting around 90ish on the insulin index. White Rice is 80.

Beef is 51. Peanuts are the lowest listed, with a score of 20.

Now, there is considerable variation, looks to be around 10-15%, meaning there is that much variation in the insulin repsonse of the sample members to the test with each food.

Hydrogenated oils are called that because they have extra hydrogen atoms on the end of their lipid chains.


Hydrogenated oils are called that because the hydrogen converts double bonds in the middle of the lipid chains to a saturated bond (i.e., unsaturated becomes saturated).

They left a large opening on purpose. They probably left food out, too. They wanted their house destroyed.

SO eating N calories of pasta results in a lower insulin response by a little than eating N calories of beef.

One decent mini-flourish was he ended the very sober statement, without changing his serious tone or demeanor, with "we will make America safe again".

Posted by: rhomboid at July 08, 2016 08:57 PM (QDnY+)


Trump's angle has been to come down extremely strongly for the cops. He isn't taking on BLM directly very much. Heck, even Sen Tim Scott was on TV earlier talking about how black men are targeted by police in this country. So I would be surprised if he attacked it head-on, at least very much.

A couple of points noteworthy to me at least:

1, Trump does have a possibility of entree with blacks, and not just conservative blacks. He's got ties with Don King and Mike Tyson and the boxing community and even a rapper or two I believe. He's making a play on decent jobs for blacks. Will any of it pan out? Who knows, but at least he has an identity and name recognition already cemented with his TV celebrity among the LIVs.

2, Hildabeast and the JEF are looking at the real polling, not the b.s. that the MSM is serving up now pre-convention which has Ace so depressed. I think they are worried. I'm betting they think they need that 95% black vote and high turnout for Hildabeast to win and if that requires a large pile of cop bodies to get there, so be it. I think they're less worried about "silent majority backlash" since we're not the same country we were in Nixon's day and they've had many years of ideological indoctrination of the younguns.

So I expect to see more of the same from them, with their street allies and the MSM continually pouring gasoline on it and Barry and Loretta playing the game from above.

It was already headed that way, in the sense that when RageyMcRageImpulseControlDisorder is allowable, everything else gets drowned out, if only by the volume.

This kind of thing happens periodically here because there aren't a lot of rules, and people have a hard time distinguishing between "few rules" and "no rules," and because people get mad, and think anger is an excuse for dropping a deuce on the carpet.

OR because they just genuinely don't think the prohibited thing is offensive, and can't distinguish between prohibited and offensive, and plbt there it goes.

I predict a couple of results. Atlanta cops who can take early retirement are going to do so. Atlanta cops who have only a few years in are going to look for jobs in other towns. Soon there will be a lot of vacancies in the Atlanta PD and a much higher percentage of rookies. That is not likely to be a good combination when there are likely to be a lot more delicate situations that require smart and careful handling to avoid blowing up. Expect a lot of avoidable blow ups to occur due to avoidable mishandling.

Businesses will stop moving to Atlanta and businesses will start leaving. I am not sure if this will be regarded as white racism or bad luck. Businesses that remain in the Atlanta area are likely to relocate to suburban towns.

hydrogenated fats usually refer to fats/oils that have been hydrogenated through an industrial process.

When they do it like that, they cause the hydrogen atom to attach in a trans position (referring to the geometry of the molecule)

These are called trans fats.

This rarely ever happens in nature.

Naturally hydrogenated fats aka saturated fats have the hydrogen binds in cis position.

Trans fats, because their shape is different, are difficult for the body to process and causes heart disease.

Naturally occurring saturated fats are ok. So are unsaturated fats.

Think it was because he directed an "F U" to all not currently supporting the likely GOP nominee, more or less - I think I have that right.


Seemed kind of out of the blue, even in an open/wandering thread. Anyway, that's what I think I saw. I don't recall him last night being anything memorably bad, but I may have missed it.


I find most of the threads revolving around race-charged incidents becoming tedious, even repetitive with apocalyptic s**t that I find implausible.


Not that I am extremely sunny about things (ha!) - but I see non-kinetic, gradual, boiling-frog degradation of our civic culture and institutions as ongoing and more likely to describe the "end times". Whimper, not bang. So all the armed conflict apocalyptic stuff is just boring.

You said you love Coen brothers movies, right?


One of the BEST things they do, is have the actors chew the heck out of dialogue, in ways that are both entertaining and oddly, just slightly off from reality. It's an effect that creates an edge to scenes, in ways that turn something that would otherwise seem ordinary, into the extraordinary.


This movie is chock full of it. Bad guys who are superb in their roles, Bridges doing what Bridges does, and the little girl who played the kid was wonderful.

Wisdom does not consist of trying to wrest good from evil but in learning to "ride" them as a cork adapts itself to the crests and troughs of the waves.

As bleak as things are and are probably going. We have to remain strong. I view the Horde as a pack of sheepdogs. We need to have each others backs even if it's just "stay positive guys" (a Louis quote from Left4Dead2).

758 Not a big fan of the bannings. Missed eman's final transgressions, so can't say, but he was hardly a disruptive or nasty regular, so that surprised me.
Moo was kind of an institution in his own right. Contrarian, chew-toy.
Since AmishDude's demise cannot recall a banning of any non-drive by types who were vocally on one particular side of the GOP divide, but that could well be my limited data set, and not a pattern.
Posted by: rhomboid at July 08, 2016 08:49 PM (QDnY+)


No one has been banned for their particular political views - it was their behavior that got them tossed. AmishDude can come back when he feels he can control himself in the comments. At this point his absence is mainly voluntary.

eman was consistently snarky, and even nasty. Moo moo was half troll/half legit commenter but 95% a shit-stirrer. Both IMO on the whole made this blog a worse place. Sometimes when people have been around for a long time we just get used to them and their behavior when maybe we shouldn't.

Just because a regular commenter doesn't do anything actionable in particular does not mean that they don't have a cumulative corrosive effect on the comments in general. And the damage is often invisible - new readers take a glance at the comments and decide to go somewhere else more pleasant, long-timers either start self-censoring or just quietly move on and stop commenting.

I've been involved with online communities for over 30 years and I've seen pretty much every possible discussion forum scenario play out at some point. A healthy thriving comment section is actually more fragile than you think. It only takes a handful of jerks to completely disrupt the spirit and mood of the comments. If you get a critical mass of them, then it starts to make jerk behavior the new social norm which turns the comments into a toxic place that eventually drives away all the contributing good commenters as well as any possible new ones. If unchecked, this eventually spirals down to a new uglier, nastier equilibrium or simply a dead forum.

So ask yourselves why so many former regular morons and almost none of the Cobs post in the comments anymore. And for every one that you know of there's probably five or more that you don't.

766 What did we learn from last night, aside from the usual?

To me, it reiterated why "national conversations" are absolutely idiotic.

Some guy in MN got shot by an ASIAN cop. This is a reason to organize a march protesting the institutional racism of police nationwide?

Back in the olden times, we had this idea that making judgements and decision from a central, remote location was stupid and doomed to failure. Even with the best intentions and wisest King on the throne, how could a monarch thousands of miles away decide what justice should be in a dispute between two people? The judgement couldn't help but be tainted by aspersions and unrelated experiences in no way related to the matter at hand, nor reflective of the unique needs and culture of a community. Wouldn't this centralization also, again assuming the best of intention, lead to suffocating the unique development of communities and favor priorities of those closer to the seat of power over the needs and priorities of its distant vassals?

We've completely forgetten all that. Even the few of us who know better. Our first response to any incident is waiting breathlessly for what our benevolent leader will say from his lofty perch.

Would it not be easier and better for all if the family, friends and neighbors in the community in MN were to decide if the actions of the officer sworn to protect them were justified or not? Might not those people, who actually know the deceased and the officer have more to offer than some organizer in Dallas, a politician from DC (presently in Europe), or the presumed successors to the throne?

Perhaps we could consider that that wild idea that a jury of ones peers make a better judge and is more likely to pass just sentence than some scholar in a black robe or unemployable lawyer in a seat in DC.

Perhaps then the people of Dallas would be able to consider the facts of their own situation and how silly it is to allege racism where the Chief of Police in their community is black and shown no unprofessionalism or bias whatsoever and has pursue equal accountability from communities and officers, regardless of skin color, in his work.

Because really, isn't it astoundingly stupid to protest (much less murder) police officers in Dallas, who are protecting citizens right to speak and organize, in diafiance of the institutional racism implied in and Asian cop shooting a black citizen over a thousand miles away? Wouldn't these people have better served their purpose by seeing to their own neighbor and his violent and racist predispositions?

Body Heat with William Hurt & Kathleen Turner

Great speech by the police detective about the effect of a heat wave on people:

RACINE: How's the cop business, Oscar?

GRACE: Real good. Always starts hoppin' in weather like this. When it gets hot, people try to kill each other.

STELLA THE WAITRESS: It's true. I could tell you some people who'll be dead if we don't get a break soon.
(She leaves. The three men exchange amused looks.)

GRACE: We've got more of everything bad since the wave started. It's the crisis atmosphere. People dress different, feel different, sweat more. They wake up cranky and they never recover. Look at Lowenstein.
(a flash of smile) Things are just a little askew. Pretty soon people think the old rules aren't in effect. They start breaking them. Figure no one'll care, cause it's emergency time... time out. Next thing you know, the bannings are up to two per day on AOSHQ.

Posted by: BeckoningChasm at July 08, 2016 08:30 PM (AroJD)
Yes he is. First movie I saw of Duvall was To Kill A Mocking Bird. He said no lines at all, yet he nailed the character of Arthur 'Boo' Radley. But my favorite with Duval was that western with Cosner, forget the title.

Posted by: Bebe Dahl

"Open Range" Duval was so good you could almost ignore how bad Costner is.

You need to see True Confessions, murder mystery with Duval as a cop and Deniro as his brother the Monsignor. He was great in Tender Mercies also, singing and playing guitar. He's fabulous in everything.

We need to revolt.

There is a reason why this country is divided and that is because it serves the purposes of those who profit from, in one way or another from having us divided.

Who does our divided country serve? I don't know everyone, but some of the people it serves, in my weak minded opinion, are the politicians and the people they work for; and that isn't us.

We need to revolt against these assholes and find common cause with the people we have common cause with. For me, that sure as hell isn't the GOP. Not anymore.

I know that we will not find common cause with the SJW's and the BLM's of the country, but they don't represent all of the Dems or all of the blacks, a lot of whom I believe in my heart we can make common cause with.

If this site wanted to foment a revolution - a thoroughly peaceful revolution - it might just be able to do so by trying to make common cause with the people we probably do agree with more than anyone thinks. And I believe this is so, because I think we all know that we will no longer be told what we believe just because of some worn out, tired old legacy ties that we still cling to because that is who we always thought we were.

We woke up. Let's at least consider a revolution - a revolution to reunite under the old flag, but under a different banner.

Oh no, the shelf life on soft pretzels is very short. The day after you make them they start going south. They can be revived with a short pass in the toaster oven but after two days....blech.

I think the recipe I have (Alton Brown's) makes 8 pretzels. Usually I choke down the last two because they are past their prime.

The baking soda boil helps give them the shiny outside, soft inside, as does the egg wash. The egg wash helps bind the salt as well. If you don't boil, you tend to not get that chewy outside covering to the pretzel. They say food grade lye makes a more authentic, chewy crust, but I haven't been willing to go there.

See my comment at 783. With the way this idea of suspending elections is being thrown around, I wanted to know if people were getting it from our national legal documents, or from their experiences in watching other totalitarian regimes do the same thing. I know the feds have done a lot of unconstitutional things in the last few years and longer, but most people seemed caught off guard by their audacity. Maybe we've simply come to expect it?

Please understand, most black folks don't understand, either. Only 1/4 of blacks in this country live in poverty. They have generally chosen to do so. Opportunities abound, chances are extended, affirmative action is in place. Those who choose to live as criminals and drug dealers and thugs remain in that 1/4 of the hood. The rest of black America has no idea what in hell those folks are doing.

Neither do the rest of us, who choose to be successful and self-supporting and NOT break the law. We assume that happiness comes from being productive and reaping the rewards.

I believe Jesus told us that to live by the sword is to die by it? Very smart man. Also probably confused as to why those folks choose the ghetto over the rest of America, but hey. He did give us all free will.

I, for one, am perfectly happy when the system works as it should, preserving the lives of peace officers and punishing those who break the law, Hilary and her cronies notwithstanding. If black folks have an issue with this, it is because they chose to do so. Period.

838 There are some "natural" trans fats. By natural, I mean have been a natural part of the human diet through our evolution and are likely fine. They meet the definition of "trans fat" chemically/geometrically, but they've been in the crap we've eaten since time immemorial.

What's bad are the "engineered" trans fat. These molecules, while very similiar to fat, are different from what we evolved with. One should always be suspicious of new stuff, stuff that's never been in the diet before.

There's increasing evidence that the so-called "healthy oils" unsaturated, mono and poly (especially this latter) are not so much. We never consumed them in the quantities we can and do today, thanks to all the processing.

We ate them, but not in such great quantities. The majority was saturated fat. They've told us this was bad. Turns out it is likely not, and probably the best kind of fat there is.

Kim Darby played Mattie as a whiny, spoiled bitch. Not at all what the
book portrayed. I wanted to smack the living crap out of her.


Posted by: DangerGirl and her 1.21 gigawatt Sanity Prod at July 08, 2016 09:21 PM (+eR2D)"


She played the role as overbearing and obnoxious, kind of like Katherine Hepburn in "African Queen". Both women were in positions where they were in way over their heads and trying to fake their way through with false bravado that pretty much everybody could see through. Mattie had been doing the job of an adult keeping the books on the ranch before her father was murdered and so then she took on the adult task of trying to live up to what she imagined her father would have wanted.


I don't know why so many hate Kim Darby in that movie. I thought she played the role of the young girl trying to behave like the way she thought an adult ought to behave quite well.

877 kari - just to playfully pick at two items on your list (note: I take, and agree with, your general point about lawlessness) .....


Executive agreements with foreign countries that are not subject to Senate consent to ratification greatly outnumber treaties so subject in the last few decades. Most are technical and non-controversial. Obviously there's a "spirit" or unwritten aspect to this, and the Iran deal blew past those boundaries like a rocket sled.


American citizens in arms against the US overseas and part of organizations at war with us are not, nor should they be, required to be brought to trial before action can be taken. Otherwise let me introduce to you the AQ Foreign Legion/Amrikiya Division - magically immune to American attack even as they plan massive harm to American citizens and interests.


Among my most tedious refrains is that lawlessness is what's mostly eating America's civic culture alive these days. Paradoxically enough, treaty process and drone strikes are not really big parts of that lawlessness.

I've been involved with online communities for over 30 years and I've seen pretty much every possible discussion forum scenario play out at some point. A healthy thriving comment section is actually more fragile than you think. It only takes a handful of jerks to completely disrupt the spirit and mood of the comments. If you get a critical mass of them, then it starts to make jerk behavior the new social norm which turns the comments into a toxic place that eventually drives away all the contributing good commenters as well as any possible new ones.

AtC said as much this afternoon. I don't feel like searching for it, but she basically said, "It's like a basic law of the universe like gravity that an internet forum will eventually be taken over by the loudest screeching harpies, whether it's politics or knitting."

The best spaceflight forum on the entire internet, NASASpaceflight.com, has an absolute prohibition on discussing politics of any kind. Any such comments will be deleted and you could get banned.

That's good, because they have commenters from about 100 different countries and a heated political argument could easily escalate into a shooting war.

967 @847 garrettt-Funny you mention Suhr, that would be one of my choices for a strat style guitar. I have an old Fender Contemporary Strat that was Japanese built, replaced crappy tremolo it came with, with a Floyd. Fantastic playing guitar. Last weekend (the 4th), I got nervous going to a gig and grabbed my ESP's instead of my vintage Les Pauls that are my main guitars. Getting too attached to some of my guitars (especially at what they're valued at, it's insane), still got nervous about my ESP's though. So much nice gear out there these days.

Posted by: JROD at July 08, 2016 10:14 PM (wnwJC)

968 If anyone cares, this "trans-cis" business is just geometry of the carbon double bond found in the hydrocarbon chains of the fatty acids. Trans means "on the other side", while cis means "on the same side".

A double bond between carbons results in the isomerism. Single bonds do not, well, not anything that matters I don't think. A cis-fat will have a "bend" in the chain at the double bond, while the trans will be straight.

You can look up the precise definitions and symmetries and all that crap.

Most fats in nature, produced by organisms are cis-, bent, with a few rare exceptions, such as found in beef.

The bad "trans" fats are produced during hydrogenation when certain double bonds remain double, but are converted to the trans- configuration by the action of the process. IOW, the double bond isn't converted to single by adding hydrogen as happens with much of it, but just gets flipped to trans.

The isomers are different enough that they can have substantially different chemical properties.

Human biochemistry involves a lot of lock-and-key stuff, and the trans- shape doesn't fit so well, apparently. It messes things up.

1025 Wow just saw shite on tv that has Goebbels chompin' at the bit. I have had the news on today. Since there are so many commercials I will flip when Fox takes a break. Fox biz, if that's at a break to then down to msnbc, then cnn and back up. The rachael maddcow show had on some black chick named Joy who I have no idea who she is. It's her little speech at the end of the show. 100% BLM is right, cops shouldn't be murdered but you can see why they are. She even quoted a nice long quote from some doughnozzle at redstate to back up what she was saying. I thought it was common knowledge to keep your hands on the steering wheel, act calm, tell the cop you are reaching for your license, etc. Just common fucking sense. The left is doubling down. It's perfectly fine to tell the cop to fuck off and start rooting around in car while videoing them, act aggressive and hurling profanities. And if that cop murders you, it's because cops are racist white power advocates who work for the Man. Traditionally the Man was the President of the USA...

Then I had a kid, and when it came to choosing basket candy, you know, Peeps made the cut, even though my wife thought they were shit.

Well, my daughter must've caught on to the fact that they're shit, because she stopped eating them around 8 years old, and I thought Good! Moar for me.

Then one year, after she'd snarfed down everything but the Peeps, I ripped open the package and discovered what everyone had known all along.

Please understand, most black folks don't understand, either. Only 1/4 of blacks in this country live in poverty. They have generally chosen to do so. Opportunities abound, chances are extended, affirmative action is in place. Those who choose to live as criminals and drug dealers and thugs remain in that 1/4 of the hood. The rest of black America has no idea what in hell those folks are doing.


Black America is dysfunctional. Part of it is socially non-functional, having abandoned behavior required for social viability. The rest, for some reason, does not disavow or dissociate itself from that portion-- all of Black America seems to define itself as one with the bottom classes, even if they don't live like them.

Black Unity seems to be a reaction to fear of the White Man. Internal criticism may go on, but not openly, for fear that White America might overhear and know that Black America is humiliated by that portion of its membership that does not live up to social requirements. It is forbidden to criticize Black America openly, so it functions with a seige mentality, always fearful, and self-limiting.

Improvement is impossible, because no one wants to breach the wall built around the necessary truths. Instead, internal anger is turned outward, where demands are made for others to improve their situation. Well, frankly, outsiders can't eliminate pathology for you-- that requires self-improvement and social policy has long removed the necessary social structure that would be needed to bring that about.

The Soviets were so successful with some of their disinformation campaigns that, for example, the collaboration of Pope Pius XI with the Nazis is conventional wisdom despite being 180 degrees from reality.

The current inflation of racial passions is part of the Democrat strategy to increase black voter turn out in November. I think that the police shootings are a predictable side effect that Democrats are not specifically trying to cause but which they are willing to accept as collateral damage. They are going to keep the racial hostility knob turned up all the way to eleven until election day because political power is the only thing that they care about.

And yet, folks do escape that madhouse.

White folks are notorious for living down to the lowest common denominator, but also for rising far above their "station" in life. Black folks are no different. Just as Park Avenue would prefer we not lump them in with Appalachia, I believe a whole, maybe huge, segment of black America would prefer to not be lumped in with the ghetto boys. I will say that my black friends who are from Africa can't figure out ghetto blacks at all. As my friend from Cameroon says, "African American? I AM African American. Those folks are just plain n...s"

I think we fall into the trap of labeling folks by their skin, when it turns out MLK Jr. was more correct. By their fruits shall you know them, and those who choose to be criminals will, indeed, be shown to be just that.

Sure. But the internal social pressure then comes out to call you 'inauthentic' or a 'sellout.'

Its something that perpetuates the idea that 'black' means 'poor' or 'inner-city.'

There's an old bromide about putting crabs in a bucket-- you don't need a lid, do you know why? Because the crabs that are lower will pull the ones climbing out of the bucket back down so they can't escape.

The thing that can help Black America (and also larger, general America) improve is a restoration of the Gods of the Copybook Headings, simple virtues and the idea of shame and shaming for bad behaviors.



I think we fall into the trap of labeling folks by their skin, when it turns out MLK Jr. was more correct.


Now, none of what I'm saying is a condemnation of race, it's about the group social dynamics which are largely self-imposed. Certainly black people aren't inherently defective, as you pointed out with immigrants. But the society that's here, which has been built by historical processes and social attitudes as well as government policies, has a lot of self-perpetuating defects that hold back progress at least as effectively as anything from outside.

1098 Well said tcn. I worked in a county jail for 8 years and my co-workers were all black, one mixed girl and an old white guy (just my Department not the whole jail). They all loved me. And I spoke openly about politics. When I quit those woman missed me and I miss them. Those were my friends growing up in my late 20's early 30's.

1099 Re bannings: I think, save for the trolls, that we are on the same side here. There is existential danger to the Republic so we should be mindful that we all need each other.

I live in Commiefornia, the pots really steaming here.

God save Ace!

1101 Look at the bright side, if the country falls into a civil war it will be to the advantage of the Free Republic that Hillary (and progs in general) suck at national security.

Before I go back in the kitchen to deal with the marmalade, inquiring minds want to know: How did they not have a record or as-built of your sewer connection? That kind of stuff is usually kept near and dear to their hearts, because if they have to do a repair and can't prove that your lateral was the culprit, they have to pay for it.

Nope no records. Our house was built 1900-02 but there are no city records of the sewer system from then. Mind boggling, they actually have no idea where the sewer lines from then run. WTF?

1108 Race is not the problem...but beliefs, perceptions, culture, heroes, etc. If you think America is the most racist and evil country on earth then you will do everything you can to destroy it. If you think America is the best country on earth you will do everything you can to save it. I think that sums up the divide in this country perfectly.

The biggest mistake this country made was not seeing the corrosive dangers of internationalism on the foundation blocks of the country. Most nations on earth are not exactly fond of certain freedoms that make America what it is. They like the wealth and power part, the better life in terms of material stuff, but not the other important values and customs.

This means the values and customs of internationalism crept into our political, legal, economic, educational, and business institutions. If the majority of countries on earth are hostile towards free speech as we Americans defined it, or gun rights, or displays of American patriotism, then our institutions influenced by internationalism will therefore become hostile toward those rights and customs as well.

Remember how America was founded, as a ship of liberty separated from a world full of despots and tyranny. The reality is the world today has not changed as much as we had hoped. Yet foolishly we allowed the ship to be grounded and bridged for world power, trade, and wealth after WWII...and in the process lost the reason for being on the ship in the first place.

1112 What is going on here? What makes everyone throw in the towel and decide Hillary is winning? She is a criminal and everyone in the country knows it. We haven't even had a convention. What the hell is the matter with you people? Have you heard anything inspiring from her? She is like a wooden post. Likable people are elected to prez. I rest my case.

PS What is the reason no one has mentioned that almost never has someone been elected from the outgoing party if they held 8 years.

Posted by: AnnaS at July 09, 2016 01:26 AM (P+I7L)

1113 >>Likable people are elected to prez.

Trump has even higher unfavorables. Hillary is highly unlikable, but polls show Trump is even more disliked. Things could change, but right now Hillary is looking like she'll win.
